The undisputed master of pony snuggles, political satire and generalized self-loathing.

Hoping that finding a special somepony will help Starlight Glimmer feel more included, Princess Twilight Sparkle and her friends encourage her to start dating.
The whole situation means that Spike becomes an advice guru, Pinkie Pie becomes a spy, Twilight becomes an overprotective friend... And Starlight has to deal with it all!

So Spike gets all offended by the fact he got no initial vote, then uses logic to get his vote, and then completely goes against twilight for Starlight's sake? I'm game. Where does all the crazy shipping happen?

Also, EmberLight?

7437597 The shipping is soon, and she'll be paired with a background pony. The craziness is a consequence of the Mane 6 and Spike interacting with her dating choices... It should be entertaining!

Oh Starlight, Speed dating is a one way ticket to wrecksville. Also, Bank Run... I'm sensing a heist.:scootangel:

One minor problem: I consider Revenant Wings to be a bit more laid back about what he does, though I'll put that on my fault for not saying that in the first place. I liked this. :twilightsmile:

WE NEED TO MAKE SPIKE GREAT AGAIN!!!!!

7437622 Wait you look familiar. *Looks in the story*

My goodness! You're trying to date Starlight Glimmer!?! :twilightoops: YOU CAN'T HAVE MY WAIFU # 2

7437673 I completely agree. From personal experience.

7437798
Eh, I did so because I knew the OCs weren't going to make it. Your waifu is still yours. :rainbowwild:

Nice chapter! So are all oc's going to be recurring at some point in time, or have Thunder Bolt and Revenant Wings been eliminated from the competition? Just curious, but in any case, I think you wrote my oc well. Good story overall.

You know... I can actually see Dusk going nuts.

Hmm this seems interesting. And it seems like I might have to check out a few authors and their stories. A few of those OC's have caught my interest.

Well, this is very...psychotic.

Tracking cautiously.

Ok, I'm a go for this crazytrain. Let's see where it goes...

Well, THAT turned out to be a complete bust.

Wow, that manager is a DICK, expecting Starlight to pay for all that after that very public scene that wasn't her fault. :ajbemused:

:moustache: Twilight another bill?
:twilightsheepish: just pay it spike...
:moustache: That makes 47 this week.
:twilightoops:
:duck: beats paying for our first rampage of Ponyville
:moustache: I'm on it....
:raritywink: blackmail :facehoof:
:moustache: works for me.

Nice chapter m8. But you didn't answer my question, will Thunder Bolt or Revenant Wings be coming back at all?:rainbowhuh:

7443223 *Probably* not, unless I can think of a way to write them in without compromising the story's integrity

Damn, poor Starlight. If this does not go well at all for her in the long run, then I wonder what will happen

7443331 Ah, I see. Just wondering since Starlight did say that she'd be willing to give Thunder a chance, jus sayin.

Ouch that's so sad. Hope your next date goes better Star. Here is a cute pic of a kitten to make you feel better and a tub of Icecream as well.

Welp, that stallion's screwed. Deserves it though

Now it's Spike's turn to give out useful advice.

7468137 Whatever they did it clearly wasn't good cause Spike was not having it. :raritydespair:

Just read this and last chapter.

I'm confused, if Sugar Plum was Bank Run's EX, then doesn't that mean she has no claim over him?

I uh...I think we just figured out why the Mane Six are all single...

7468257 You need to learn to read for tone. She obviously chose exactly that moment to break up with him, in public, for cheating on her.

7468266 Um, rude? I can read for tone but the capitalization of "ex" just seemed random and would've been easier to pick up on if she dumped him at that moment if it was italicized or she said "now ex-fiance".

7468339 Sorry if that came across as rude, it wasn't intended to. In any case, the intent there was fairly clear, at least to me.

Okay um wow. So hopefully Spile can set things right.

-BFBL

Awesome, Spike is the one who'll know what to actually tell Starlight.

Spikes gonna tell the truth

OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD I'VE SEEN SO MANY CARTOONS AND TV SHOWS DO THE FRIENDS GIVE AWEFULL ADVICE BEFORE GOING OUT ON A DATE CLICHE SO MANY TIMES THAT I'M TIRED OF IT AND I JUST KNOW THAT SOMETHING BAD IS GOING TO HAPPEN! Really CategoricalGrant you're really going to go with this cliche?

This is a great version of Spike.

That's Spike. He knows how is to be nervous ans use good advices. Eat shit mane six except Twilight.

I like Spike here, he just seems like a good friend and an awesome bro

Ladies, take notes. I mean it, go get a sheet of paper and a pencil, and write down everything that Spike just said.

It's about time he gemstones up and taking charge.
Better bring the owl for damage control.

YEAH SPIKE!! Represent the men and stallions who don't get a say!! That's how Spike should be. Smart and assertive but not a jerk about it. Although that broom thing, wow. Rarity is gonna be steamed at him!!

Some dragon's sleeping on the floor tonight.

7474186 AGREED!:twilightsheepish: This is the second best Spike I've ever seen written. Not to be mean, but he's kind of a doofus in the show. A bit. Not a lot but just enough to where I don't really appreciate all he's done thus far. I hope that came off better than it sounded.:facehoof:
