A Twixie Love Story - Yukito

  • ...

A Twixie Birthday

Twilight finished waving goodbye to her friends as she reached her library. They had just returned from Canterlot, where they all celebrated Twilight’s birthday party, since Rarity had wrote to them saying that she wouldn’t be able to make it back to Ponyville in time.

As her friends parted and headed towards their own homes, Twilight let out a quiet sigh. The party was certainly fun, but it was also pretty tiring. Also, Twilight had been on edge all day. She was worried that suddenly, a certain blue mare would pop out of nowhere to wish her a happy birthday in her own, grand way, embarrassing Twilight in front of her friends, and possibly breaking into a conflict with them.

But, despite the blue mare’s claims to make Twilight’s birthday the greatest birthday of her entire life, Twilight saw no signs of Trixie anywhere, and didn’t receive any presents from her, either.

Twilight wondered if Trixie got cold hooves from the thought of appearing in front of her friends, and let out another sigh. ‘Trixie didn’t seem so afraid of meeting my friends…Could she be holding back because she thinks I’m worried? I should ask her when I see her next week…

Twilight opened the door to the library and stepped inside. “Spike,” she called out, but received no response. She tried again. “Spike?” Still no response. Twilight looked around the library with a confused look, and reached for the light switch beside the door.

Once the room was lit up, Twilight’s attention was drawn to the centre of the room, where a big box in blue wrapping paper with a purple ribbon was sitting quietly.

Twilight closed the door behind her as she walked further into the room, examining the box closely. There was a tag attached to the side. Twilight lifted it with her magic, and narrowed her eyes to read it: “To Twilight, happy birthday, love Trixie?”

Twilight looked at the present excitedly, but also nervously. “Wait, does this mean…Does Spike know about me and Trixie? And where is she, anyway? Did she just deliver this and go home?”

As Twilight unleashed a series of questions to herself out loud, the box suddenly shook, startling the purple Unicorn and breaking her chain of questions. “D-Did the box just…Move?” This only increased Twilight’s nervousness. What in Equestria had Trixie gotten her?

Twilight swallowed hard as she braced herself, and then used her magic to slowly undo the ribbon, making sure to take it off neatly, so as not to tear it. It would be a shame to waste it, after all, since it could be used again in the future.

Once the ribbon was off, Twilight used her magic to slowly rip open the wrapping paper. As soon as it was off, the box underneath suddenly burst open, and from within came a blue mare covered in sweat, wearing an angry face despite her best attempts to smile at the startled Unicorn who was now on her back, staring wide-eyed at Trixie.

“H-Happy birthday, T-Twilight!” Trixie shouted, panting heavily as she leaned over the edge of the box. “T-Trixie…Did not think this through…”

Twilight stared at her marefriend completely dumbstruck. After a few seconds to collect herself, Twilight rose to her hooves and helped Trixie climb out of the box. “Um…Trixie? You ok?”

Trixie, who was still panting, and was now wiping the sweat off of her head, simply nodded and asked Twilight for a glass of water. Twilight fetched a glass from her kitchen and poured some water into it, and then brought it back out to Trixie, who gulped it down rather quickly.

Trixie took a moment to catch her breath, and then turned to Twilight, eyes half open as she grinned at the still confused librarian. “So, surprised?”

Twilight nodded, and then remembered that Spike was still nowhere in sight. “Um…Did you…Set this up with Spike?”

Trixie shook her head. “No, Trixie simply sent your friend away on business, using an illusionary image of you.” Trixie leaned in closer to Twilight, and added a seductive tone to her voice. “He won’t be back for a few hours, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy your present.”

Twilight’s ears perked up and her eyes sparkled, as she bobbed her head to look over Trixie’s shoulder at the box, a big smile crossing her face. “What did you get me? Is it a book? Or a collection of books?”

Trixie rolled her eyes, and tapped Twilight’s nose, drawing Twilight’s attention back to her. “Twilight, what came out of that box?”

Twilight raised an eyebrow in confusion, but answered anyway. “You.”

Trixie waited for a few seconds for Twilight to get it, and when a streak of red crossed Twilight’s face, Trixie leaned in to kiss her marefriend on the lips.

The two mares closed their eyes as they enjoyed each other’s lips. Trixie’s tongue against Twilight’s mouth caused her to open up, and allow the showmare’s tongue to taste her own. Twilight’s own tongue fought back, and a full minute passed before the two mares pulled back, a thick strand of saliva between their tongues breaking as Trixie’s face moved away from Twilight’s.

“Tonight, Twilight, Trixie will do whatever. You. Want,” Trixie said seductively, smiling as the redness across Twilight’s face grew more intense.

About an hour later, Twilight and Trixie decided to take a break from their lovemaking to take a hot bath together. Twilight’s bathtub was small, but neither of them minded. Or, at least, Twilight didn’t mind. Trixie preferred to have plenty of space when she bathed, and was mentally complaining about the size of the tub, but she wasn’t going to voice those complaints to her marefriend.

Trixie let out a sigh as she looked back on the past hour. Despite giving Twilight the lead tonight, Trixie still somehow ended up on top. ‘Of course Twilight’s fantasy involves her being a bad student,’ Trixie laughed in her mind. More accurately, Twilight’s fantasy involved her being a student who handed her homework in late, and had to be punished by “Miss Lulamoon.” ‘Well, whatever makes her happy…

“Trixie?” Twilight asked, breaking Trixie out of her daze. “Were you even listening to me?”

Trixie froze as she stared at Twilight, trying not to show her nervousness. ‘Uh-oh…This isn’t good…Think, Trixie, what should you say?’ Trixie leaned forward and wrapped her forehooves around Twilight. “You’re so cute, Twilight!”

Twilight sighed and pushed Trixie away. “So, no, you weren’t listening,” she said, turning away from Trixie and pouting. “You were off in your own little world again, huh?”

Trixie’s ears drooped as a guilty look crossed her face. “S-Sorry, Twi…I was just-”

Trixie was cut off by the sound of Twilight’s laughter, and the purple librarian turned to face Trixie again. “Wow, I was only kidding, Trixie,” Twilight said, wiping a tear from her eye. “Come on, like I’d try talking to you during a bath. I know better than that; you’re too relaxed to hear anything.”

Trixie blinked at Twilight a few times in disbelief, and then narrowed her eyes at the librarian. “You dare to trick Trixie?” she asked with somewhat feigned annoyance. “Trixie will get you for that!” she shouted as she reached forward for Twilight with her forehooves.

Before Twilight could respond, Trixie began tickling Twilight’s sides, the purple mare breaking out into a series of giggles. “AHAHAHAHAHA! T-TRIXIE! STOP! AHAHA!”

Trixie stopped and allowed Twilight to catch her breath, grinning at her with a victorious look on her face. “Oh, that’s right,” Trixie said, before climbing out of the bath and starting to dry herself off with the towel that Twilight prepared beforehoof. Twilight followed suit. “Trixie has another present for you. She almost forgot.”

“Trixie, you didn’t have to do that,” Twilight said. “Just being here with me tonight is enough.”

“Too late, Twilight,” Trixie responded. “The tickets are non-refundable, so we might as well use them now.”

“Tickets?” Twilight asked, raising her eyebrow in confusion. “…Let me guess. You got me tickets to your next show?”

Trixie frowned at Twilight’s accusation. “Honestly, Twilight, does Trixie seem like the kind to do that? Get you a cheap, simple present for your birthday?”


Twilight’s silence spoke volumes, and Trixie felt insulted by it. “Besides, Trixie already gives you special VIP tickets to all of her shows, so it wouldn’t exactly be a special present.” Trixie folded her towel into a nearby basket, and started to leave the bathroom. Twilight followed, curious as to what Trixie had got her. “Just you wait, Twilight. You’re going to love it.”

“If you say so,” Twilight said, not entirely convinced.

“OH MY CELESTIA!” Twilight exclaimed, staring at the ticket in her hooves. “Trixie, how did you get these!?”

“Not important,” Trixie said quickly. “So, judging from your reaction, can Trixie safely assume that you like it?”

Twilight answered Trixie with a very tight hug, which Trixie returned after momentarily being stunned by Twilight’s sudden attack. “Trixie, this is…This is…I don’t even know how to describe it!”

Twilight locked her lips against Trixie’s, the showmare once again being startled by the sudden boldness of Twilight’s actions. Trixie returned the passionate kiss, and fell down onto her back as Twilight pushed forward. ‘Twilight must really love her present’, Trixie thought, running a hoof slowly down Twilight’s back and towards Twilight’s flank. She was stopped by a sudden voice behind her.

Spike mumbled to himself as he walked down dirt road leading to Ponyville, carrying a handful of herbs in his paw. “Stupid Twilight, asking me to go out and get this herb this late at night…What could she even need them for, anyway?”

Usually, the task would have taken him much longer, since, unbeknownst to the baby dragon, the particular herb he was asked to retrieve was a rare one that only grew in a field quite a trek from Ponyville. Luckily for Spike, he ran into Zecora on his way there, who was just returning from harvesting a variety of herbs, and she was kind enough to offer some to him, since it was dark out.

“And what was up with her voice, anyway? Well, I suppose she did just come from a party, so she was probably tired…Which reminds me, why couldn’t I go? That’s just not fair. She better have saved me some cake, at least.”

Spike continued his mumbling until he reached the front door to the library. He opened the door and walked inside, taking a look around the room before closing the door behind him. “Twilight?” he called out, seeing no sign of the purple Unicorn. He turned his attention to the box in the middle of the room, surrounded by torn wrapping paper and with a neatly folded ribbon sitting beside it.

He raised his eyebrow as he turned his head towards the staircase leading upstairs. “Maybe she’s upstairs?” he asked himself as he made his way towards the stairs. He laid the herbs down on Twilight’s work desk on his way, and then made his way upstairs.

He reached the top of the stairs when he heard something strange, causing him to stop momentarily, wondering what the sound was. It sounded like Twilight, but he wasn’t sure what kind of sound it was. He waited to see if he heard it again, but when he heard nothing, he shrugged and continued on.

As soon as he started walking again, though, he heard another sound from upstairs, only this time, he recognised the sound. It was a sound he sometimes heard in the morning, whenever he insisted on lying in. He had no idea what the sound meant, but he was too tired to care right now.

Upon reaching the top of the stairs, Spike’s eyes immediately widened at the sight before him. Twilight was in the middle of the room, lying on top of somepony whilst making out with her. He let out a loud gasp as he realised who the other pony was. “What the!?”

Twilight waited for Spike to calm down before she began to explain things to him. Once Spike was calm, he sat down on his basket, while Twilight and Trixie sat down together on Twilight’s bed.

“Um…Let’s see…Where to begin?” Twilight asked, scratching the back of her head nervously.

“How about you start by explaining why she’s here?” Spike asked, pointing a finger at Trixie, who responded by glaring at the baby dragon with a look of annoyance matching the one coming from him.

“Well…” Twilight said, but was having trouble finding the right words.

“Trixie’s here for Twilight’s birthday,” Trixie said, seeing that Twilight was having trouble. “Why are you here? Trixie sent you away for a reason.”

Spike blinked a few times, and then his eyes widened in realization. “Wait, don’t tell me that Twilight I saw earlier…Was you!?”

Trixie grinned at the baby dragon. “Took you long enough.”

“…Well, that explains the whole “Amazing and Beautiful Twilight Sparkle” thing,” Spike said, rubbing a paw against his chin.

Twilight raised an eyebrow at Trixie, who simply shrugged at the confused mare. “What? You needed a title. One that lets the whole world know how great you are. Unfortunately, ‘Great and Powerful’ is already reserved for Trixie.”

Twilight facehooved. ‘It’s not trademarked, you kn-…Actually, knowing Trixie, it probably is…’ Twilight dismissed the thought, and turned back to Spike. “I’m sorry, Spike. I didn’t know she would be coming over tonight, and I certainly didn’t know she would send you off to find Golden Basil,” she said, emphasising the last two words as she turned to Trixie with a crossed look on her face.

“But why would she be here anyway?” Spike asked. “And what were two doing earlier…I mean, y’know, on the floor…”

Twilight blushed and refused to face Spike. Trixie grinned again, and placed her hooves on Twilight’s cheeks, holding her in place as she moved her face close to Twilight’s. “Oh? Would you like us to show you, young dragon?”

Spike turned his head away with a look of disgust on his face. “EW! Gross! Twilight, I thought you had better taste than that! I mean, really? Trixie?”

Trixie released Twilight and moved closer to Spike. “And just what is that supposed to mean, insolent reptile?”

“Trixie!” Twilight scolded. “Just let me do the talking, ok?” Trixie shrugged and lay down on her back, pouting at the ceiling. “And Spike, can you please just let me explain, and save your questions until the end?”

“Oh, fine,” Spike said with a sigh. “Just leave out any mushy stuff, ‘kay?”

And so, after taking a moment to put together the story in her head, Twilight explained to Spike about how she and Trixie were seeing each other, and had been doing so for a few months now. She told him that Trixie’s visit here was a surprise visit for Twilight’s birthday, making sure to leave out all of the details not suitable for a dragon of his age.

“Wow,” Spike said once Twilight was finished, genuinely amazed. “How did you…I mean, I can understand how you kept it a secret from everypony else, but how’d you keep it a secret from me for so long?”

Twilight let out a nervous chuckle. “It wasn’t easy, let me tell you,” she said. “And I’m sorry for not telling you all this time, Spike. It’s just…You weren’t exactly fond of Trixie the last time she was here.”

“Well…” Spike looked over at Trixie, who was still lying on her back lazily. “To be honest, I just didn’t like that she was calling herself the “most powerful Unicorn” when that honour clearly belongs to you.” Trixie sat up to say something, but Twilight anticipated this, and put a hoof to Trixie’s mouth before she could say anything. “But I guess if she makes you happy…Then I can’t really do anything but accept it, right?”

Twilight looked at Spike with a surprised look on her face. “Spike…I’m impressed. That’s very mature of you.”

Spike shrugged and lay down in his basket. “I’m too tired to argue about it right now. And it’s not like I have to get along with her myself, right?”

Trixie moved Twilight’s hoof away from her mouth, and grinned at the baby dragon. “Unless Trixie one day moves in with Twilight.” Spike’s eyes widened, but closed again shortly afterward. Just as he said, he was too tired to argue. “But Trixie must admit that she is impressed. Usually, dragons are known to be quite stubborn. It’s in their nature.”

“Well, Spike’s different from most dragons,” Twilight told Trixie, and then leaned over to whisper into her ear. “Besides, he’s in love with a pony, so I don’t think he could bring himself to keep two ponies apart when they’re in love with each other.”

“Ugh, can you two keep it down? I’m trying to sleep,” Spike said, pulling the covers over his face to hide the blush he gained from overhearing Twilight’s whispering.

Trixie looked out of the window and frowned. “Trixie should get going, actually. She has a show tomorrow, and can’t be late.”

Twilight nuzzled Trixie’s cheek lovingly, who returned it with equal love. “So, I’ll see you next week then?”

Trixie nodded, and then the two made their way downstairs. As Trixie neared the door, she suddenly remembered something important that she wanted to tell Twilight. “Oh, Twilight, Trixie almost forgot. She needs to ask a favour.”

“Sure. What is it?”

“Do you think you can ask your friend Fluttershy to look after Leon for Trixie next week?” Trixie paused for a moment to think. “She is the one who’s good with animals, right?”

“Yeah, that’s right. But…Chameleons don’t live around here. I don’t know if she’ll know what to do with him…”

“That’s ok. Trixie can give you some instructions to give to her. It’s a lot easier than you think.”

Twilight nodded and moved closer to Trixie to kiss her farewell. However, as she neared Trixie, she suddenly realized something. “Say, Trixie, where did you get those tickets?”

Trixie froze in place, and smiled nervously at Twilight. “T-That’s not important, Twilight.”

“But these are tickets to the S.S. Blueblood’s maiden voyage. They sold out so quickly because it’s going to be the most romantic cruise this year. They’re not something you'd just find lying around, and I know you don’t have enough money for something like this.”

Beads of sweat ran down Trixie’s body, which did not go unnoticed by Twilight Sparkle. “Trixie?” she asked, narrowing her eyes at Trixie.

Trixie let out a defeated sigh, knowing she wouldn’t be able to lie her way out of this. “Trixie…Got them from a friend…”

“A friend?” Twilight asked, raising an eyebrow. “Who?”

“…Boss,” she answered. Seeing that Twilight was still confused, she explained further. “Boss is the one who gave Trixie her…Job…As a filly.”

Twilight’s eyes widened as she thought back to Trixie’s story of how she was once part of a criminal gang, using her illusions to aid in their transactions and escapes. “You…Still hang out with them?” she asked, a hint of disappointment present in her voice.

“They’re not criminals anymore!” Trixie quickly tried to explain. “The Royal Guard caught up to them about a year ago, and they’ve been in hiding ever since.”

“Then they’re fugitives!” Twilight shouted as quietly as she could manage, not wanting Spike to overhear their conversation. “That’s just as bad! We’ve got to…Were these tickets stolen!?”

“No!” Trixie shouted, and then put her hoof over her mouth. Once she had calmed down a little bit, she explained more quietly to Twilight. “No. Boss’ father is a member of the Royal Guard. It’s how Boss was able to stay ahead of them for so long, and how he’s able to stay ahead of them even whilst in hiding. He had access to inside information.

“Anyway, Boss’ father gave him those tickets, so that he could take his marefriend. But, naturally, he can’t go. The Royal Guard will be on the ship, after all. So, he gave them to Trixie, so she can take you…”

Twilight closed her eyes for a moment, taking in all the information that Trixie had given her, and then reopened her eyes. “Trixie…I can’t…I can’t stand by and do nothing whilst you hide with these fugitives,” Twilight said sternly. “I’m the Princess’ pupil. If you have information on where to find them…You need to tell her. And I need to make sure that you do.”

Trixie shook her head rapidly. “I can’t!” she shouted. “I’d be betraying them! I just can’t do that!”

“Would you rather betray me?”

Trixie shut her eyes as tight as she could, and took a few steps back. “Twilight…Please…” Tears flowed down Trixie’s cheeks as she continued backing away from Twilight. “Please don’t make me chose between you and my family!”

Twilight’s eyes shot wide open at Trixie’s pleas, and she struggled to find the right words to say. On one hoof, Trixie was involved with a group of criminals who were being tracked down by her mentor’s Royal Guard, and it was Twilight’s duty not just as Celestia’s pupil, but as a citizen of Equestria in general, to report this information to Celestia.

But on the other hoof, these fugitive ponies were Trixie’s friends. And not just that, but the only family she had ever known. They saved Trixie when she was a filly, and if it wasn’t for them, the two mares wouldn’t be together right now. It was clear how much they meant to Trixie, from the way she was holding her head in her hooves, sobbing into them as quietly as she could, which was still not very quiet.

Also, if Trixie reported any information she had on them, it might be revealed that Trixie was involved with them. And then what? Twilight would lose Trixie. Trixie would be locked away for a good number of years, or exiled from Equestria. The thought of losing Trixie made Twilight feel cold, and scared, and…It made tears fall from Twilight’s eyes.

Is this what’s she feeling right now?’ Twilight thought to herself. ‘It’s not that she doesn’t want to betray them…Well, not entirely…She doesn’t want to lose them. They’re like family to her…Family…How would I feel if I lost my family?

…It’s painful to even think about never being to see them again. As painful as it is to think I’d never see Trixie again…Oh no…’ Twilight put a hoof to her mouth as she realised what she was doing. She was forcing Trixie to abandon either her marefriend, or her “family.” If Trixie was feeling the same for her family as Twilight was feeling towards her own, then it was no wonder Trixie was breaking down into tears. She couldn’t stand the thought of losing either Twilight or her family, and yet Twilight was…

Twilight walked up to Trixie slowly, and pulled the mare into a warm, comforting embrace. “I’m sorry, Trixie,” Twilight said softly as the other mare shook in Twilight’s hold, sobbing into the librarian’s shoulder. “I’m so sorry. I…You don’t have to…Choose between us…”

There was a long silence between the two, before Trixie’s sobbing finally calmed down to the point where she was able to speak again. “Really?” she squeaked, looking up into her lover’s eyes.

“Really,” Twilight confirmed with a friendly smile. “It’s not right to force somepony to make a choice like that…I know I certainly wouldn’t be able to choose between you or my family.”

“But…What about the Princess?”

“…Weeeeeell…I guess I don’t have to tell her…She has enough on her plate already.” Twilight used a hoof to wipe the tears away from Trixie’s face, and then leaned in to nuzzle her lover’s cheek. “Besides, I kept Fluttershy’s theft of her pet a secret…I’m sure I can keep this a secret, too.”

“…Wait, what?” Trixie asked, raising an eyebrow at the librarian.

“Long story,” Twilight said. “I’ll tell you some other time. But for now…Didn’t you say you had to get going?”

Trixie blinked a few times, and then let out a loud gasp as she remembered that she was on a tight schedule. She quickly broke free of Twilight’s embrace, and headed towards the door. She stopped once it was open, and turned to face Twilight. “Um…Thanks…”

Twilight smiled at Trixie, and responded: “No problem.” Her face suddenly became more serious, though, as she continued. “But, I’m only going to keep it a secret as long as they stop committing crimes. If I find out they’ve started up again…”

Trixie smiled reassuringly at the purple Unicorn. “Don’t worry. Trixie’s already convinced them to clean up their act. Besides, they’ve got enough to live off of now, which was the main reason most of us joined that group in the first place.” Trixie shuffled her hoof nervously on the floor, before asking Twilight: “Are we…Still going, next week?”

It took Twilight a moment to realise that Trixie was referring to the cruise, and then put a hoof to her chin in thought. “Hmmm…Well, the tickets were obtained legally…And I do want to go super bad…” Twilight winked at Trixie, a big smile spread across her face. “Of course we’re still going! I can’t wait!”

Trixie took off her hat and bowed theatrically to Twilight. “Then, Trixie will make sure it is a weekend you remember for your entire life.”

“You say that about all our dates,” Twilight laughed, with Trixie joining her afterwards.

“Goodbye, Twilight.”

“Bye, Trixie.”

Once the door to the library was closed again, Twilight waited a few minutes before heading back upstairs. She fell down onto her bed, and starting to think about the wonderful weekend the two would have together next week. The S.S. Blueblood had it all. A ballroom, a swimming pool, luxurious rooms designed for couples, a library…Twilight let out a dreamy sigh as she hugged her pillow close to her, before giggling into it like an excited schoolfilly thinking about her first date.

Meanwhile, Spike had to bury his head under his pillow to drown out Twilight’s silly little giggles, and rolled his eyes as she began imitating a conversation to Trixie, impersonating Trixie’s voice (quite badly, in Spike’s opinion).

“Oh, Trixie, it’s so romantic!”

“Only the best for you, my dear Twilight.”

“Come on! Let’s go look at the library on the lower deck!”

“Indeed! And then later we can sample some the snacks in the dining hall, or maybe…”

Twilight buried her head into her pillow and let out a small, embarrassed squeal as her mind wandered into places she would never consciously admit existed in her brain.

Spike let out a quiet sigh. ‘And she says I’m bad when I think about Rarity.
