The name's Dash. (Previously Ronnie) And I write humanized pony stories. Welcome to my humble page.

Oh Applejack, where for art thou Applejack! Those were words Sunset thought she'd never have to hear herself say. Though there is a first time for everything. Because they were both failing drama class, they were chosen as Romeo and Juliet for the senior play. And neither of them seem to be happy about it.

She wasn't alone though, Applejack had failed too, claiming she was too busy around the farm to read such mushy gushy stuff. (That and Victorian English was difficult for her to read but she wasn't going to tell anyone that.)

Elizabethan, not Victorian. Also, there's some weird formatting in the middle of the chapter.

Otherwise, fun story. Looking forward to more!

Thanks! I fixed the weird format. Thanks for the heads up!

Never says anything about how long the kiss will be.

I was just reading a little bit of this and I stumbled on this line.

Victoria wasn't the queen when Shakespeare wrote Romeo & Juliet. Elizabeth the First was, so that should be Elizabethan.

Also, while I haven't finished reading, I couldn't help but spot this as I scrolled down to the comments section:

“Of course!” Rarity exclaimed. She paused and let out a nervous chuckle, “ok, well not that way. It’s sweet how two people from two opposing families found love in each other.”

This and two other paragraphs below it have Heading 1 tags around them, and a horizontal line underneath too. You need to fix that.

Ah, this brings back memories of high school literature and drama classes. But in addition to the emotionless readings, we also had one guy who like to deliver his lines with as much impact as possible - literally yelling his lines in somebody else's face at some parts!

Poor Sunset. Poor Applejack. But I can't wait to see how this story turns out! :rainbowlaugh:

Who’s the other half of the art club?

Thats so weird i dont know why its doing that

Oh! I can't wait for the next chapter! I've never been much of an AppleSet shipper, but after this, I might be! XD

Really well written btw, love your work!

“Yeah! And I’m not a sugar crazed lunatic!” Pinkie added, pouring frosting onto her nachos.

pinkie needs an intervention lol

“So a guy would just kiss another guy in drag?” Snips asked. “That’s kind of weird.”

. In hindsight it really is weird that that was considered more puritan than letting women act in theater.

Not an AppleSet fan, but this does look intriguing and funny 😆.

“Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die,” Applejack let out a small cough before she fell over onto her back, “I’m dead.”

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

She should have been a Mechanical.

Ay, that left pap
Where heart doth hop.
(stabs himself)
Thus die I, thus, thus, thus.
Now am I dead.
Now am I fled.
My soul is in the sky.
Tongue, lose thy light.
Moon, take thy flight.

Now die, die, die, die, die.
(dies)

We have an old saying at home; "it’s not gay to give a blowjob to a friend."

"Ah, ah." Mr. Magnet tsked, shaking a finger at her. "The theater gods have spoken and their decision cannot be changed."

Translation: "I have a bet going that you and Applejack would kiss before the end of the school year. I want that money.

“Yeah! And I’m not a sugar crazed lunatic!” Pinkie added, pouring frosting onto her nachos.

LIES!

“You do!” Rarity giggled as her face lit up, “this is wonderful! Oh, you two will make such a cute couple! What should your couple name be? Sunjack or Appleset? Oh! Or maybe—”

Rarity. Let me be the first to extend an invitation to join our ranks in the society of underground shippers.

“Oh no, Romeo is dead,” She spoke in a tone just as emotionless as Applejack’s had been.

Bravo! Bravo!
Encore! Encore!
*Wipes a tear from his eye* It's so beautiful!!

Of course, it wasn't the story itself that vexed her the most, but the meaning behind it. Love is so strong that you would kill yourself for your lover? It's so strong for you to want to rather be dead than live without your significant other?

I feel the need to point out that the protagonists were 14. Maybe 15. They were idiots.

The concept was lost on her. It was a preposterous and pretentious idea to believe that someone with good common sense would want to do something so foolish. Love is tragic sure, but in this case it was just ignorant, fleeting, and naive.

And that's just the idea.

“Yeah! And I’m not a sugar crazed lunatic!” Pinkie added, pouring frosting onto her nachos.

Acknowledging it really doesn't make it any better.

She moved the tape from Sunset’s waist to under her arms as she continued to speak, “they were ready to risk everything just to be together. Their wealth, their status, even their lives just so they could be together.”

They were 14, their plan was full of more holes than swiss cheese and oh yeah, THEY WERE IMPULSIVE MORONS.

“Romance knows no age, Sunset,” Rarity scoffed. “And they were thirteen and fourteen respectively. It’s no wonder why you failed the midterm.”

Precisely.

“Why can’t she just say, ‘Holy crap, you’re dead!’ or something? Why does it have to sound so complicated?”

*sigh* I'd tell you if I knew, Rainbow.

“Here is where we’re gonna remain if she keeps saying her lines like that,” Rainbow said,

*snicker*

love the story cant wait until the next chapter and also great job

Love is tragic sure, but in this case it was just ignorant, fleeting, and naive.

Good job, sunset, you figured out the meaning of the play.

“When is that man ever happy?” Applejack asked.

When he's not in school?

Trixie nodded. “Well, when she comes back, tell her The Great and Powerful Trixie needs a bandaid!” and with that, she threw down a smoke bomb and disappeared—to just behind the door. “Yes!” she cried triumphantly. “It worked again!”

Happy Trixie is adorable

“Finish the scene, you useless lesbian!” Rainbow Dash whispered harshly from side stage.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA! I love Rainbow Dash.

But the one play she never understood the most, the one that vexed her to the point of no end, was the one that Mr. Magnet, the drama teacher, for whatever reason had chosen for the senior play.

You know, it’s strangely appropriate that you made Steven Magnet the drama teacher. Wonder if we might actually see that in the EQG shorts or the next movie, if they make another one.

“I’m not a weeb!” Fluttershy protested."I just like the storylines, the animation, and the cute little figurines..."

No, Fluttershy is secretly a Brony.:rainbowlaugh:

Whoo! Well done! Any time anyone can add Shakespeare to fanfiction is okay by me.

“Yeah! And I’m not a sugar crazed lunatic!” Pinkie added, pouring frosting onto her nachos.

:pinkiecrazy: Who are you calling sugar crazed? I'm actually immune to sugar

Once she had gotten into her ‘zone’, most of the costumes had been done in one week. Though the noticeable bags under her eyes couldn’t be hidden. And the bedazzled travel mug that everyone assumed was full of coffee she had in hand all day said that she had pushed herself too hard.

And I suddenly imagine a coffee mug with the Dazzlings band logo on it, since no true lady of refinment would ever stoop to petty displays of superiority (and the red gemstone shards on the transparent base certainly were never part of a magic necklace).. :duck:
