Adorable author.

The cuteness is strong with this one :heart:

I'm legally obligated to say that I'm officially a slut for Raridash


This was nice! I rather enjoyed the domestic air. :3

I consider your legal obligations fulfilled, good sir.

Glad you enjoyed it! I had a lot of fun writing it!

Now I just have to avoid coming up with more RariDash ideas...

Who am I kidding? I love these two :raritydespair:

That was beautiful... I'm not usually one for RariDash, but hot damn, you took the cake on this one. :pinkiesmile:

This was my first ever RariDash fic and I freaking LOVED it! It really works with the idea of them being a little older. I don't think I could ever see it with them at Canon age with their current attitudes and ideals, but given a few years it seems like a less forced pairing. Because of that, I think, as well as the "sappiness" Rainbow so despises this was a wonderful piece.

Cute how long have they been married?

Great Story. I like how you portray Rainbow and Rarity as a couple. They sound very convincing especially the "pet" names they give to one another. The way you protray the Pictures and thier memories helps us readers understand how they've reached to this point in life. That's is definately show of good writing. This deserves a like and a fav from me:pinkiehappy:

::long exhale::

That. Was. Beautiful.

It didn't have to show the meetup or the relationship buildup or any of that stuff that people wrongly say is tired, because it proved why these two work together even while setting the story at the point in time that it did. (I totally believed the wedding vows.) In short, the author still did the work (and before indulging in NowKiss(tm), talk about self-control!) and thus, I can fantasize about the beginnings myself--but honestly, I don't wanna now. I'm comfortable here.

I historically have not been a fan of stories that start with the non-canonical relationship already in place, but this finally proves to me it can work and that I can enjoy it. Makes me want to try my hand at one of these now that I've finally found one that works for me.

Oh, and you've officially put a dent into my Rarico OTP. And with Rainbow of all things. Gah.

Congratulations.

You'll pay for this. :raritywink:

6643686 I eagerly await my punishment with whatever brainworms you (and Cryo) might try to give me! Glad you enjoyed it, Bookish!

Was there ever any doubt? :trixieshiftright:

6643728

On the quality or on you two giving me brainworms later?

6643728

Not really? Just usually a lack of motivation or skill on the part of the masses.

Glad y'all finally got off your butts and did something about it. :trollestia:

Just an FYI, I'm prepping my reaction image folder before I go into this.

6643805 Uh oh. *hides*

Pinkie is all the way in Ponyville, minding Knock Knock and Who’s There with Party Favor.

You think you're cute, don't you?

Great...now I got diabetus.

THANKS

6643943

You think you're cute, don't you?

Great...now I got diabetus.
THANKS

Mission accomplished! :rainbowdetermined2:

Glad you enjoyed it, Fuzzy!

Heh, even if it was my first RariDash; it was still awesomely sweet read :pinkiehappy:

I think I has diabeetus now…

I have a cute now, thanks. And normally I don't even like marriage-fics that much. Good job! :twilightsmile:

6646177 Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!

Damnit Zomg, my heart can't take this kind of abuse! :rainbowkiss:

6646520 You will take it and you will like it!

This was good!
And favorited!

They feel like newlyweds. Are they meant to be newlyweds?
Regardless, me likey.:pinkiehappy:

6649557 See my avatar for my response :P

Always great to see more Raridash material. It's such a great ship, but such an underrepresented one. This one captured perfectly what they see and feel in each other, both ponies with incredibly high ambitions and no desire to let anything hold them back. It only makes sense they would ride the surf of life together, more than other pairings. That's why I love Raridash so much.

Excellent piece of work. Definitely earning a like and a favorite.

Engine room, dawww factor 10! :raritywink::rainbowkiss:

Well done!

Late replies all around!

6654223 Yus! All of the diabetes.

6657461 Yeah, it's a bit surprising, but it makes sense given that the three biggest M6 ships are TwiDash, AppleDash, and RariJack (with TwiJack right behind). RariDash is cute and I feel like they go great together because, for all their differences, Rarity and Rainbow are both ponies driven by their own ambitions and desires to make their dreams happen. That, in combination with their tendencies to act as a sort of a "rock" for one another (along with their friends, of course) in their respective "chasing my dreams" episodes would really help them out here. Sadly, I think this one falls into the cracks because it breaks the above three.

6668217 I'm givin' 'er all she's got, Cap'n!

I think some of that fluff got in my eyes. :derpytongue2:

Very nice. Very sweet. I haven't seen a lot of shipping stories that are a pure slice of many-years-married life. I find I rather enjoy the perspective.

I feel that you left one rather important thread dangling, though. If I might suggest an alternate ending...

It didn’t matter, she decided. She opened her mouth to allow Rainbow’s tongue entrance, surrendering herself to the heated passion they shared for one another. As intense as the first night together, she mused. And it’ll only grow more so, my love.

Deftly, she slipped her hooves from beneath Rainbow’s, and wrapped them around her neck, pulling her in close to deepen the kiss.

"Psssst... you forgot these!"

Rarity's eyes shot open in sudden alarm as she heard a familiar voice coming from, of all places, underneath her bed. She and Rainbow locked eyes briefly, pupils constricted to pinpricks, then slowly disengaged their lips and turned their heads to the side in a smooth, perfectly coordinated motion.

Poking up just above the level of the sheets, they could see a a jewelled crown and purple cape being held aloft by a pink, disembodied, hoof.

:pinkiehappy:

Wonderful, if a bit sappy.
