When passions flare and new relationships begin at the Grand Galloping Gala, it can be difficult to sort things out through the warmth and glow of young, budding love. Princess Twilight Sparkle and Captain Spitfire know full well such things are supposed to have a certain progression, but they're not going to let that stop them from enjoying each other's company as much as they can.

I remember this! Nice to see it's finally out!

7942541 Thanks. Two years later, finally put it up ^^;

It's here! :pinkiehappy:

Anyway, that was a nice introduction, and I'm already liking the chemistry between Spitfire and Twilight. Some of their more flirtatious moments reminded me of Respite, which I guess explains why I felt the chapter had some cute moments sprinkled throughout. Excellent work as usual, and I eagerly await the next chapter! :twilightsmile:

This madness has finally come to light...

Celestia help us all. :derpytongue2:

I remember ya talking about this way back, good to see it out.

It's almost as if you make it a point to disappoint me.

7942683 Gotta have goals.

Through the TwiFire and Flames. Here we go. :3

Is this the TwiFire you once told about?

I'm game.

~Skeeter The Lurker

omg that was amazing, I'm dying for the next chapter already! PLEASE I NEED MOAR!!! xD

Take you time though in all seriousness. I'm loving this so far! :D

Story Approver

This is gonna be a good story. Wink wink, nudge nudge!

Twilight and Spitfire, oh yeah!

Heh. well this will be pretty interesting of the romance between Twilight and Spitfire :raritywink:

7942559 Two years? So does that mean updates will be few and far between?

7942618 Glad you enjoyed it! You certainly waited long enough! Hoping to have it out soonish. Just gotta poke at edits.

7942672 You're all beyond help. And I know, right? This has taken forever.

7942682 ... I ... Dammit, Rossby.

7942708 This guy...

7942764 Oh good. Strap in 8D

7942801 Chapters are all done, yo. Just need to do editing sweeps. Glad you liked it though.

7942823 Hopefully so!

7942930 Yes! :D

7942947 No, I mean two years to write the entire story. Everything is done. Just editing sweeps here and there.

7942965 awesome! I can't wait!

What is this I don't even?

Would it matter if two mares getting laid on the spot?

Hmm, not what I expected... How upset will Twilight be when she finds out Celestia arranged this? :trollestia:

Really enjoyed the flirting. Twilight, still as adorkable as ever. :twilightsmile:

Curious about how Spitfire pushing this so quickly. I think we did not get the whole conversation she had with Sunbutt.

Great pairing! And well written too :D

just a quick request - please, as a source, put url of the DA page, not of the pic itself. thanks!

You'll never know If you don't go
You'll never shine If you don't Glow.





Why have I never heard this before? I'm having to beat back with a spiked baseball bat the urge to howl at this, I have no idea why this makes laughter well up inside of me so.

So, I gotta say, I really like how you've depicted Spitfire when she's not in military officer mode. The way she acts when she gets informal honestly had me visualizing not a captain and a princess at a gala, but a butch at a gay bar who's coaching a baby dyke in the ways of vagitarianism. Yeah, stuff is going pretty fast, but I feel like that's going to be part of a lesson of sorts, that there are mares who just aim to charm the skirt off of another for a good time. You don't have to be in love to wanna bang, and the interactions between them were all more sensual than romantic. I see something bigger for them in the future- this is, after all, a story of drama and romance- but it's going to start with a casualness about the matter that Twilight's not familiar with, and I think Spitfire is an excellent candidate for the one who shows Twilight that a connection doesn't have to be deep for it to be intimate.

I'd like to take a minute or two to gush over the rainbow mixer. Our little fandom has produced a wide range of fanfiction that uses decadent gustatory descriptions, whether to laud Pinkie Pie's baking or Bon Bon's confections, help us relate to our adorkable Princess of Friendship's loves of coffee and greasy food, or to lovingly alienate us with equine xenocuisine that makes us long for an utterly other palate. Your description here of the rainbow mixer, if you'll pardon the pun, takes the cake.

Bringing it to her muzzle, she gave a tentative sniff. The scent of ozone, like the air just before rainfall, mixed with the familiar sweetness of strawberries.... Twilight waited for the burning, for rainbow fire to dance on her tongue, making her eyes water just as Pinkie’s had in Cloudsdale. Her eyes shot open at the taste—the smooth, sweet caress of strawberries mixed with the biting spice of diluted rainbow, a mix of flavours quite unfamiliar to her. Unfamiliar, but pleasant. She felt like a bit lighter, like she was wide awake and full of energy rather than maintaining appearances after a busy week of preparation.

I suddenly have the urge to seek high and low to find a way to make a strawberry juice, caffeinate it, make it spicy, and give it the smell of electricity in the air. I can taste it, although it uses an ingredient that is wholly, literally fantastic. This is Inkling-level food description. I'm thoroughly impressed.



I had to read that twice to make sure I was seeing it right.

Haven't even read this yet. Just know THIS is the ship I've been waiting for. Yassssssssssss can't wait!

looks interesting gonna give it a shot if i have time to read again ^^

Awesome. I'm loving this. I've been looking for more twifire, and honestly you did a wonderful portrayal so far. I can't wait to see how things continue and the mares' relationship progresses.

Just surprised that you find me attractive“

needs a period at the end.

Her wings fluttered, the tips of her primaries brushed against Spitfire’s

Possibly needs a period, might possibly just be an incomplete sentence.

I utterly love this ship.

Ok I lied. I don't want one chapter a day.......I want the whole damn thing right now!

I have never seen this ship before and I am loving it so far. (Love your version of Spitfire )

I for one like this ship so I am glade to see another story

this...is...AMAZING!!! I love it! I loveitIloveitIloveitIloveitIloveitILOVEIT!

Can't wait for the next chapter, I have never seen this ship before but its really good already. Can't wait for more!

Wow, this is my number one crack ship.

This one is going to be oh so good. I'm so tracking it.
Have a like and please don't keep us waiting! :raritywink:

7944937 Aye, that you were. It's a real thing; I have a broad array of gay friends, so the lingo isn't entirely lost on me, and I can confirm that vagitarianism is a real word.

Oh yes... The first chapter build up to a great payoff. Or should that be climax? :trollestia:

Spitfire bagged herself a Princess.

Twilight bagged herself a Wonderbolt.

I am looking forward to the Rarity reaction! :duck:

Shipping intensifies. Shipping intensifies so hard caddie is going to pop another horn!! :raritystarry:

Damn. I could feel it in the air. The first kiss, the first time. Falling asleep in the arms of one you love. That's the most special first there is, as I see it.
Damn, just damn :rainbowderp:

7946204 just Rarity? Darling, the gosto in the highest echelon of equestria is going to be plasma hot!!! And by highest echelon I mean the princess trio + elements, with shiny as a special guest :raritywink:

Edit: oh, by the way, you just earned a fave. Really, damn :moustache:

I wonder if there's a medal for robbing a princess of her virginity.

If not, there should be.

Say what you want about Dash or Fleetfoot... Spitfire works pretty damn fast herself!

7946204 hahaha yes rarity and the rest of them are all going to have great reactions to this development im sure!

Can I get a chapter Estimate plz? I like my plots big.

Shining is going to be mad. I wonder if this was Celestia's plan all along.

7948419 naw I'm pretty sure he knew what was gonna happen. I mean his wife is the Princess of Love, the Mistress of Shipping.

I was expecting celestia or trollestia to make a sudden appearance
