Spike's going to need help from all of his friends if he's going to grow up as the only Dragon in Ponyville.

More or less a Spike biography from a few months after the wedding to whenever I stop writing.

Spike and Rainbow Dash pairing. RainbowSpike.

Inspired by It Takes a Village, so go read that because it's awesome.

Edit: Here's the comic I found after I wrote my disclaimer, seems someone had the same idea as I did. 3.bp.blogspot.com/-Vo7Fo8iRPVc/TnZ7xN0--6I/AAAAAAAAMfI/m-La-qOxMPA/s1600/call_of_the_cmc_by_csimadmax-d4a91i8.png

The in-story Chapter Title says "I love it when a plan comes apart." Your Chapter titles reads "I love it when a plan falls apart." Also, P0nies had a good point. The cover art is misleading. And you go from what seems to be Spike to somepony else.

Aside from all that. It seems good.


I had to reread it to understand it that well, thinking Spike was the character in the first paragraphs. Unless you were actually trying to make people think it was Spike, you should've mentioned it was a different character early on.

Fixed the title and added the prologue part, this next chapter will clear up the main character issues.

That was my intention actually, as it builds suspense for Spike's situation, then curiousity about the mystery pony, and then back to Spike for a cliffhanger. It also shows how the chapter title fits, Elise's plan comes together while Spike's comes apart. Also, it's a fun A-team reference.

I thank you for your optimism, unfortunately though, my story does not accrue wealth on its own:trollestia:

Thank you for your support and enjoy the next chapter, please. I really want you to enjoy it.

I wish I knew where all this interest was coming and going... thank you very much

This is awesome.

Im noticing some flashbacks on Dash, eh.

My dreams may come true.... dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Rainbow_dealwithit.png

Lol "A Breakfast of Champions" everyone knows that 'Wheaties' you're talking about. (Sorry couldn't resist) :rainbowlaugh:

Very good, but can you find the other reference? If anyone does, I'll give them a surprise!:pinkiehappy:

very very cool story :rainbowdetermined2:

But is this Tom that Rarity mencioned, i really don't remember anypony name Tom :unsuresweetie:

great work, seems that we have a great story in the making over here :yay:

Tom was what Rarity named the boulder that Discord had her carrying around. Thanks, but considering how slowly the timline of the story will move, I doubt to many people will read it. Just Spike's birthday will take another 4-5 chapters. The next will be out by this Thursday at the latest though.

Also, what the heck's going on with your avatar?

ahh well now i remember tom :scootangel: thanks for the info, i really didn't remember that the piece of rock that Rarity was carrying in that episode had a name, specially a human name :twilightsheepish:

Your welcome, and still I query, what is Lyra doing in your avatar?

707800 mmm i can explain you my picture in 2 ways: :ajsmug:

1.- Is just Lyra sitting in Twilight's head, while she was reading a book about Star Swirl, the Bearded. :yay: just Lyra being Lyra.
2.- What??? Have you never hear of the Legend of Lyra???? Never? She has a mystery but powerfull power that allows her to sit in a very special way in everyplace she wants! :rainbowderp:
Just as great as RD's Sonic Rainboom, Lyra's sitting-power is a mighty and very mistic ability that only she has and it helped her to have tons of adventures around Equestria, doing her job as member of the Backers team :rainbowdetermined2: (you know from background ponies :twilightsheepish: )

The chapter title and ALL the original names mean something. Search the lake name with pony.

:twilightoops: Are you sure we should give them so many hints?

Of, course! There's no way they'll geuss what I'm going to do to you! :trollestia:


On the first chapter, i Thought this was a SpikeXDash story. Just that... Um. How can I put it. He dosen't believe it....

Well that was a pleasant surprise. :twilightoops: :moustache:

Great chapter :rainbowdetermined2:

good to see Zecora inside a fic :yay:

698249 It's cool. I didn't dislike it.

His birthday isn't even over yet, I've still got about 10 hours to write out. Also, if you know how it is possible to see a rainbow across the entire atmosphere you win a special Rainbow Dash prize.

Thank you, I was a little worried because when I looked this over for grammar and such, I realized I put at least 3-4 hints as to what was going to happen, but I couldn't bring myself to take any out.

Thank you very much.:pinkiehappy: Would you believe me if I told you I only focused on the rhymes and that the matching meter was accidental? Also, she's actually pretty easy to write. You just give her your Author Vision(story omniscience), coax her into rhyme, have her do something unexpected and then withhold information through cryptic statements.

Thanks, I was a little worried people might hate me for asking, but if I could find that person and have them read my story again, it would make me very happy :twilightsmile:
Also, I want a story with no dislikes, because that would be awesome:moustache:

Thanks for the responses everyone, I would still love to read it if you guys have any guesses on Novus and Alida based on their names and coded conversations. I promise they will be important, at least minor-character important, like the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Also, go look up the song Flying Purple People Eater, because that was a fun punch line to set up, and it was totally MLP canon.


That reply has absoloutly no sence. I just said I thought it was RainbowSpike.


Sorry, love that song dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/sillyfilly_Rainbow_Dash.png

his birthday isn't over = he still hasn't got Rainbow's Present yet


Me = I Stupid = Shotgun = to = head :3

LOL, also please at least try and guess about the atmosphere covering rainbow, it is something I've seen before, but I'm pretty sure no one has ever made mention of it in any place I can find, and I just checked google as much as possible, nothing comes close.


Im like you.
I have dreamed of RainbowSpike

That is the offical Shipping name, of course.

I think I can guess it.

BTW Is this clop? Becausse that is how much I dream of this to happen :3

I accept your love, it feeds my growth :twilightsmile::rainbowdetermined2:

Sort of, I haven't decided whether I want to include the lemons/smut in this story or write them as companion fics with references in the story.:raritywink:


Clop = Babys = Marrige = :heart:


okay everyone, viewer input time, I've got the next 15ish chapters outlined in my head and such, but since Zecora was a spur of the moment thing, everytime I try to think of a gift from Zecora I keep ruining my future plans.:derpyderp1: Hopefully, since you guys don't know what's going on, you could come up with a gift idea that doesn't spoil my story, PLEASE?:pinkiehappy::twilightblush:

Thank you very much, if the planets are aligned correctly (c'mon Luna help me out here) then I'll have a new chapter up tonight or tommarrow

726375 thats not before tommarrow night:derpytongue2:

Love the story, and take as much time as you want!

nice cant wait for the next chapter:pinkiehappy:

thanks, also check out my first comment from the prologue

This is going to be SO AWESOME! :rainbowkiss:

Not sure if this sent you guys an update, I'll be checking my notices and such tomorrow after work, so let me know please.

Pinky just invented rock candy. wait till she finds out she can add food coloring or flavors to it.

Personally, I would have gone with a name like "The Wub Shack" but I guess "The Dragon's Lair" would make for a nice theme, if you could get the right decor...

I'm pretty much gonna make a theme of Pinkie "discovering" new foods:trollestia:

Well, I didn't want it to be really cliche with something like wubz, dubstep, etc. in the name:facehoof: (The Love Shack lol), and remember that it was pretty much Spike's birthday present, so of course it's going to be dragon based:moustache:, plus I think it sounds like a really cool club name:twilightsmile: if anything I don't think Spikes DJ name was very good, but he won't really be using it much, so it doesn't seem worth it

Dragon's Liar, that's a really good name, it could be used even IRL :yay:

And i didn't know that in Equestria the alcohol exists :unsuresweetie: , i though that the only kind of drink that looks like somehting with it, was cider, (you know looks like beer :ajsmug: )

Good chapter again.

PS: I really have to try one of that drinks someday :rainbowdetermined2:

Thanks, I thought Spike had a great idea with that name :moustache:
Well, alchohol may not be mentioned in the show, but the tech to make it definitely would exist, especially with all the technological advancements they show Twilight having in the Pinkie sense testing scene and her "moniter everything" freak out during the time travel episode, along with Flim and Flam's train-car cider-maker, it's really unlcear just how far along Equestria is technology wise, I feel confident with anything short of the Internet really (I'd have to get back to you on phones though, maybe Princess Celestia just prefers baby dragons suffering to a monthly bill and being accessible for her subjects to call?:trollestia:)

P.S. Did fimfiction send you an update after I added to CH4?:rainbowhuh:
