Monochromatic


Perfect has seven letters and so does meeeeee.

Source

Diplomacy, foreign relations, cultural exchange, all important duties that Twilight needs to learn as a princess. Fortunately, this foray in to the unknown is made much easier when she meets a lovely foreign pony from the French Equestrian Kingdom who's willing to be friends with her.

Now, if only they could actually understand each other.


Series of oneshots set in a RariTwi AU based on the prompt, "Rarity and Twilight are princesses from different countries, smitten with each other despite being unable to communicate".

Beautiful cover art by foldawaywings !

That's so mean. Literally releasing this as I check my mail before bed. So cruel.

You're on a roll recently, aren't you? I'll read both of your stories later.

By the way, your RariPie shipping story was decent.

Woooo! It's finally here! :yay: :heart:

I loved every part of this.

Okay this was a treat. I only wish this adorable AU story was a bit longer. Sequel down the line maybe? It was tre bien! I hope we get to see a comic or picture of Twilight the Pantomime.

Je m'apelle - I am called. Je suis XXX is strictly incorrect but due to the influence of English is not unknown. There's more but maybe PM?

More. This is lovely.

If i track this will there be more chapters?

This was very sweet, I loved it! :raritywink:

A few notes though:

-English and French are proper nouns that should be capital.
-And in this case Equestrian would be too.

-This isn't a big one but the pony version of France is typically called Prance, as noted before this last one here is more of a suggestion then anything.

Keep on writing! :heart:

This was great! More please!! :twilightsmile::raritywink:

You've an excellent nack for creating lovely AUs that just beg to be continued.

~Skeeter The Lurker

This was a cute bit of trollity :raritywink:

I swear, between this and your other fics, you're trying to convert me to Rarilight, aren't you... :ajbemused:

Well... it's working...

I desperately require more


Even if French is a terrible phleghmy language full of bleh


Mildly surprised you didn't use Prance or something, but I suppose years later the pun grows stale.

To those curious, more of this AU will be coming very soon, either all in one go or in varying intervals. I just gotta finish editing ooooooops

Well I'm glad you decided to continue this then. I just read through it and refreshed the page to see your comment. This is a fun story to read through having so little verbal communication between the two of them. I whipped out Google translate for the parts that I couldn't guess exactly what Rarity was saying (translation didn't work great but meh). Eagerly look forward to more.

What's this ? French that isn't google translated from English? I like this already.

Normally I don't tend to read much Rarilight but for this I'll make an exception honestly it's got me hooked and I can't in good conscience leave it unread :twilightsheepish:

I meant to ask you what your first language was... but if your French is rusty... then...tri-lingual or...? Well anyway looking forward to seeing more here... and my French is good enough to nearly not need google translate! ...Nearly. Also... god... French Rarity.... yeah cause she's not adorable and sophisticated enough in English... #Monochromaticistryingtokillme

She would be taking the role of an ambassador to her country in Equestria, and Twilight was not only to make sure she attended all her lessons, but that Princess Platinum’s stay in Equestria was a very memorable one

"Well, yes Celestia, I guess there were other ways to go about this, but you never said I couldn't do it via sloppy makeouts."

Three Mono stories in a week!!! The Pone Goddesses, and RariTwi Trash, are pleased indeed, and most grateful for your fluffy offerings.

Nice fic.
There are some typos thought.
Negative quotes have "ne" before the verb.
"Je ne voulais pas..."
"Ce n'est pas le moment!"
If the subject designates a female gender character, an "e" is put at the end of the verb who would succeed "be".
"Enchantée !"
2nd singular person, puts "s" after the verb. 3rd plural person, add "nt" after the verb's "e".
"Viens, avant que mes parents ne me tuent!"
"J'arrête" has a "^" accent on the 1st "e". "Papa" has no accent.
"voyons" isn't followed by "s'y". You can say just "voyons", or "voyons voir".
Don't get discouraged, you're doing good enough. It's my native language, but I do know french isn't an easy language to learn.

Omg, Rarity, you shameless flirt.

As in, she is a literal flirt personified. That should be her element.

Nice self reference there, cool story.

Whoa wait what?

This isn't over? Seriously?

~Skeeter The Lurker

...Heh. That "phantom princess" line...

Subtle.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Episodes, huh?

I can get behind that.

And why not, I dunno, "word of god" it that this some time after Rarity learns how to speak fluent english/equestrian?

~Skeeter The Lurker

It's raining chapters, Hallelujah, it's raining chapters

.......Dayum. That was saucy.

What, no I'm not thinking of more perverted stuff why would you say that?

JOOOOIN UUUUUSSSSSSSSSSSS.

~Skeeter The Lurker

I find myself incapable of disliking anything you write and are single hoofedly making me choose between twidash ala twidash forever (though seems no longer writing horse words) or rari-light

Wow that was a fantastic end to the story. Not having a sad tag let me know it wasn't going to end how you were painting it, but that was still a very emotional ending. I didn't actually guess the twist though which makes me feel silly. You've yet to make an AU with these two that I haven't enjoyed. Great job.

I used to be behind TwiDash.

That was until I met Mono.

Speaking of... I need to catch up on The Enchanted Library. I'm way behind.

7200217
Yeah hahaha I've just been really inspired lately o:

7200224
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

7200247
Ah, well, I don't think there'll be a sequel but I added more chapters! And thank youuu, Tela, I'm glad you liked it!

7200259
Oh, well, that's mostly because she was going to introduce herself "je suis la princesse Rarity", but changed her mind? Though if it's wrong, I'll change it right away o:

7200291
There is more! :3

7200303
Thank you, Frank! And I just posted a few more chapters :3

7200309
It isn't necessary to track it anymore, as I've just posted the rest of the chapters :D

7200333
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! And thanks for the correction!

As for Prance, I... I knew that, but I... I really don't like how it sounds :twilightblush:

7200338
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!

7200439
:raritywink:

7200493
Why, Max, how could you say such a thing! OF COURSE MY INTENTION IS TO CONVERT YOU! :trollestia:

7200538
Thank youuu, Cyne! I'm glad you liked it :3

7200663
Hehe, yeah c: I studied french when I was in school, and I lived in France for about six months during 2014! My french is rusty, but it was really important to me to try and be as accurate as I could be o:

7200738
Thank you! I'm glad you're liking it even if you're not a fan of the ship :3

7200756
My first language is actually spanish! I live in Mexico City, but my mother is american and she was deadset on me learning english properly. As for french, I studied at a french lycee until i was 13, and then I took a semester abroad in France during college!

Also, thank youuu, Sun! I'm glad you liked the fic, and yes, yes I am trying to kill you with a raritwi overdose ;P

7200779
Hehehehe.

7200802
Good, good! I wouldn't want to displease the RariTwi gods, nor the RariTwi fans...

7200880
Thank you! And thank you so much for the help! I've made the corrections, and bluh, I'm kinda embarrassed that I overlooked such basic things u.u

7200965
:trollestia:

7201034
Shh, shh... Also, I... I'm glad you liked it? xD

7201063
Ah, thank you, Atom! That's very high praise, and I'm glad I still haven't dissappointed you c: also choose rarilight do it chOOSE RARILIGHT

7201111
Thank youuuu, Glint! I'm really glad you liked it! And yeah, I didn't feel it warranted the sad tag, because I didn't want to put people off by them thinking it was going to have a sad ending...

7201129
ONE OF US ONE OF US ONE OF US

7201141
omg... Well, there's no rush o:

I'm impressed by how you take a single core idea (Rartwi) and craft a multitude of unique stories and worlds out of it. Thank you for yet another excellent story.

7201274

In the words (I think) of Rarity:

"It was marvelous, darling!"

Yesssss I liked it a loooooot.

~Skeeter The Lurker

I think "croyais" is actually "croyait", since its in the third preson singular.

7201366

Oh oops, I think you're right! Thanks for telling me o: I've made the correction

I'm sorry mono I doubted you for a second. I thought there wouldn't be a delightfully happy end to this story and I very nearly couldn't finish it but I'm glad I did. Thank you for doing this. Thank you for writing the best raritwi on this site. Not only that but damn well the best stories in this site in the whole. Keep up the good work.

If you must know, if there's something I love more than RariTwi, IT'S TRAGIC RARITWI.

And nearly a whole chapter of it! Thank (the RariTwi) god the switch with Sweetie worked out even after the prior engagement. Also, that letter. You keep dangling it in front of us, and then nothing. I want to knoooooow!

Chére is actually "chère", and "dèsolè" is "désolée", with an e because its Rarity, feminin, speaking. I think. French is hard.

Also, what Skeeter said.

7201494 In my defense, I don't speak a word of french...

No? Bad excuse? Okay. :fluttercry:

7200880 To be fair, "ne" in negatives isn't really used all that much in casual conversations, at least not where im from. Guess It didn't really match the whole romance and royalty thing going on, but that depends on what the author wanted Rarity to be like. More of a teen or more of a princess ?


Anyway, this was a bit dramatic for my taste, but still really good !

Wow that has got to be the fastest updating iv ever seen lol

I'm one chapter in and it's really cute

"Oh look! Monochromatic has a new fic! I could sure use some sweet fluffy RariTwi."

One hour later

And now I'm crying. :fluttercry:
