Hooooooo Flash has no idea how close he came to being murdered that day! :rainbowwild:

Heehee, I'm so glad you made another one of these little Flash and Sunset snippets; they're always a joy to read, :twilightsmile:

They also have a new relevance to them, depending on how one chooses to interpret certain scenes of EQG4, :rainbowkiss:


"I don't see blood, so I think I'm okay." She paused to heave a little more, adding under her breath, "Unless this body has any more surprises for me."

Yeah, it keeps bleeding from different places. And the mammary glands are in the wrong place.

"Where are you from, anyway? I don't think you ever said."

Sunset froze for a moment, bottle still held to her mouth and eyes shooting open. She flung the bottle sideways against Flash's chest and quickly got to her feet, bolting for the nearby bathroom.

Well, that's one way to avoid a reply.

She shimmied back down

Huh. I only now noticed that choice of a verb :pinkiehappy:

Well that was surprisingly adorable. Good show!

By the way, just a little typo

I takes more to kill me than an annoying viral infection.

Should be "it takes..."

Beyond that, great fic!

I don't understand why Sunset should feel offended about Flash disliking horses. She is a sapient Equestrian pony, so horses should look in her eyes like gorillas in ours.

Well, this beats my fanfiction and then some:facehoof:(The only difference is I did this with Twilight and Shining Armor)

Thanks, dude. And really, I wouldn't terribly mind seeing the two get back together.

Everything about her new body is just all kinds of wrong.

Huh. I only now noticed that choice of a verb :pinkiehappy:

Seemed appropriate.

Thanks, both for the praise and pointing out the typo. Fixed.

Probably mostly a knee-jerk reaction sorta thing. Though a lot of this was also written before we ever got to see a horse in their world and how different they are.

Hmm. Quite a bit of difference in the executions, style, perspective, characters, and tone. Pretty different stories, despite revolving around the same core concept. I wouldn't worry much, if I were you. Just keep writing and see how your work evolves.

7617221 A)True. I was just worried that people would get the wrong impression and say I(or you) copied off them but it seems I have no reason to worry. B)You read it? C)The real irony is I made a human version(not yet published) but with Flash and Twilight.

It's a bit weird how often that sorta thing happens, eh? I've actually been in a similar position, wherein I was close to finished with a story and someone published a story addressing almost the exact same topic. I was a bit put off at first, but I eventually decided it didn't really matter and published anyway. Even amongst a sea of similar stories, some can stand out if they're done in a different way. And even if not, at least some people who read it might have a good time with it, and that's always a nice thing.

7617441 Ah. That's a good sign

Cute. They need more like this:twilightsmile:

This story was very cute. Hope that after Legend of Everfree, we could get more Flash x Sunset.

This was just too beautiful. You write such a perfect Early Flashimmer!

(And I certainly hope we see them together again, sooner or later, and preferably sooner.)

Finally, he returned with a ring of keys gripped in his right hand. "Man, they're always in the last place you look."

"Yeah, that's because you stop looking when you find them," Sunset remarked

That's what I always thought!

I wouldn't mind using this idea in the future for a story. You sir, have inspired me.

I can never get enough of your Sunset stories. Ending was cutes, much cutes. Plural the buck out of cute levels of cute.

How can fans hate this guy so much? He's just always so nice! :twilightsmile:

My theory he a male character that threaten alot of ships, hypocrisy on the fandom part, memes and a disturbing amount by of fans who act like jealous boyfriends(the waifu stesler crowd). Also doesn't help he didn't get much development.

"I think I'll be fine, yeah." Sunset only took three steps along the sidewalk before coming to a stop and muttering, "No." She turned, her breaths heavy, eyes looking up and down the street. Her gaze settled on a spot on the curb a few feet away where the pavement gave way to a storm drain. She tried to walk, but her left knee buckled beneath her. She stumbled and fell to her knees just above the drainage hole.

Sunset! 😰

Sunset's steps were unsteady, and she tripped against her own dragging feet once, but she managed to reach her front door nonetheless. A shaking hand pulled her keys from a pocket and unlocked her front door. The door swung open, and she took a step inside, stopping to lean against the door frame. Her slow, shuddering breaths came out through her nose, her mouth clamped shut. After a few more moments, she slid onto her couch and curled up, body still shaking.

Yep, it's a sign she's sick alright. :fluttershysad:

"Needing help," she said a little louder. After another congested sniffle, she shifted up into a sitting position, keeping the covers clutched to her chest. She reached out and took Flash's offered beverage. As she sipped on the pulp-free orange juice, her other hand moved up to rub at the back of her head. Her neck felt stiff and sore, and she assumed it had something to do with sleeping in her jacket. Then again, her neck was only slightly more achey than the rest of her, so maybe it was a coincidence.

Sometimes I forget the old sunset didn't like that. :ajbemused:

Sunset twisted the cap off and brought the bottle to her lips. The smooth jelly ran down her throat with a taste like rotten cherries mixed with cheap vodka. Sunset gagged, throwing herself forward and coughing. "Sweet Celestia, that's disgusting! How can anybody drink this garbage?!" She glared down at the plastic bottle clenched in her fist.

Tell me about it, but it still helps you nevertheless. :applejackunsure:

Ikr I especially adored him at the end of the first equistria girls movie he deserved so much better

That’s why sunny really left equistria Celestia wouldn’t let her read pony porn
