Some dork who writes horse romance. What more do you want from me?

READ THIS DESCRIPTION. ALL OF IT.

[2nd-Person Fic starring you and Rainbow Dash]

Having turned away from the spotlight, you preferred to distance yourself from fame and popularity. Instead, you chose to live a simple life away from the crowds and fortune. But when you meet a multicolored mare with an unusual request, can you find it in yourself to go for the gold again?

A/N: Okay, this is going to make very little sense at first, but just bear with me.

So I've been playing a ton of Kid Icarus: Uprising lately. It is hella fun, and Sakurai did an amazing job at revitalizing the series. It has easily stolen the spot of "favorite 3DS title" in my heart, and I can't put it down.

So you're probably wondering, "what does Kody's videogame preferences have anything to do with a romance story involving Rainbow Dash?" Well, everything, actually.

A friend of mine noticed my new addiction to this title. He knows I write about ponies, and as such, he jokingly made a bet with me saying that I should write a story in which I use music from said game in every chapter. I shrugged it off and ignored it at first, but I went and started to listen to the soundtrack. Somehow, I developed a plan and storyline from doing so. Now, this story won't reflect the events or storyline from this title. It is entirely original.

The rules I was given are simple:
1. The music must come from Kid Icarus: Uprising.
2. At least one song must be used in each chapter. More than one song is viable.
3. The same song may not be used more than once.
4. Remixes or fan-made renditions of songs are not allowed.
5. The song must be used in a way that enhances the reading experience. I can't just toss a song in and say 'mission accomplished.' It must complement the events and make sense.

Now, I know what you are thinking, and yes. This is really weird. But hey, it worked, and this story was born as a result.

EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that some of the songs used in the story are blocked in certain countries. As much as I would love to get this fixed, I'm afraid I don't have much of a way around this. If this affects you, I apologize deeply.

ANOTHER EDIT: Since Youtube is such a fickle thing when it comes to copyrighted music, a link may end up leading to a broken video. If this is the case for any of the songs, please let me know via PM so I can fix it ASAP. Thanks!

This is how it works. When you get to a bit of blue text such as this, that's a link to the song. Open it in a new tab and continue reading as the music plays. Simple. When you get to some red, underlined text, that is the cue to stop the music. Sometimes, that cue may not be there, and the song is meant to play until the end of the chapter. Songs don't carry over to other chapters, however.

The music is not required for the reading experience. It is entirely optional. Well, for you it is.

I hope you enjoy my nerd-ery!

Kody story? Tracked. Good luck. :twilightsmile:

I can't read it tonight, if it's as good as your last i'll enjoy it. Favorited to read in the morning.

YES! I WAS WAITING FOR ONE OF THESE!!

New story by the author of Scorched? Insta-tracked.

And after reading, great start! Can't wait for more!

Very interesting. I like the fact that you indicate where the music should be stopped, I hate it when authors add music but don't do anything else regarding it. Anyway, I like the story so far, and can't wait for more.

You have my attention:twilightsmile:
Another great start. Later on, I shall give a more in-depth review.

I can never get enough. Keep up the good work, mate. :raritystarry:

Just another perfect romance story:pinkiehappy:
Keep up the good work

A Rainbow Dash story by Kody?

Oh yeah, and this.

(Edit) Wow, the Rainbow one of these badge's has 120%, I APPROVE THIS!

I personally prefer second-pony stories to others, if only because of their unique challenges and such.

The music is actually a very nice and satisfying touch. I'm not gonna lie, I was rather doubtful the idea would work, but it seems to me that you've got it so far. But tell me -- if you successfully win this bet, what is your friend going to do in return? Pay you money, watch ponies, what?

Haven't read it yet but the song idea is quite original.

Let's see here..

Rainbow Dash.. Yay!

Cool plot.. ooh! Good music too...

LE GASP! :pinkiegasp: 2ND PERSON!

Yup, gonna keep up with this one.

As usual Kody910, you have amazed me. Keep it up, this oughta be good :) :rainbowkiss:

Man, where do you get those cover images?:rainbowhuh:

Cannot wait for next update.

Interesting so far, as is the concept. However, I can't really concentrate on reading with music in the background so I'll pass on that.

I like the fic, now to see more! :rainbowdetermined2:

Hmm I wonder which character in this fanfic will have Magnus' theme?

I was hoping you would write a Rainbow Dash story, looking forward to the next chapter.:rainbowdetermined2:

Can't wait for more. :twilightsmile:

Hope you don't stroll off to just focus on matching the music. This story has great potential but I want it to be Teen rated.... If you know what I mean...:twilightblush:

I can't right now but this afternoon, I am so getting started on this story!!! :rainbowdetermined2:

this is an idea I like keep up the great work:ajsmug:

Seems interesting!
Oh yeah and noob question. How do you track stories? is it by favouriting them? :derpytongue2:

882595

Yes, by favoriting stories it also kind of "invisibly" tracks them. That number next to the star on your favorites icon shows how many unread chapters of favorite stories you have left.

You know, the music-within-stories idea can actually work spectacularly; if you haven't given it a look, Sweetie's Mansion (http://www.fimfiction.net/story/7526/Sweetie%27s-Mansion) also utilizes soundtracks from the game it's crossed-over with. Definitely worth a read.

I love your writing style and can't wait to read more of the story! :yay:

Wow, that was fast. One night, and I've hit 100 notifications...

We haven't actually decided his punishment yet. He already watches ponies, so...I'm still thinking about that.

Sorry mate, this one is staying more lighthearted than my previous works.

I'm addicted to Sweetie's Mansion. :applejackconfused:

Awesome I enjoy the music aspect of this story I have a fanfic planned (for fanfiction.net because it is not pony related) that uses music from the show I'm basing it off of:rainbowdetermined2:

882751 Thanks you so much! You rock :yay:

First!:scootangel:
But anyway, this is a great start to the story! I'm looking forward to the rest of it!

who wants to go on a manhunt for the bastard who disliked this?:flutterrage:

This chapter was really good. Hope to see the next one soon! :pinkiehappy:

awsome chapter and Thunderlane is and asshole.:ajsleepy:

885042
I will, and I pinkie promise, I wont do nothing .... To violent.:scootangel:

...Wow, I'm liking this music idea way more than I thought I would. It certainly adds a unique flavor to it, that's for sure.

Well, it seems our protagonist had a friend who got drunk and blinded by fame.
...Not literally, of course, that would just be silly.

Awesome chapter, Kody, looking forward to the next one.

I might be sick nauseated and
Tired but gues what theirs room for a chapte of my favorite authors stories

The music really does enhance the reading! A great story regardless

It reads "He acts like he's better than everyone else."

Shouldn't it be "everypony" instead?

Music really added to the mood of the story. Makes it a very immersive story as it has both misic and is second person narrative.

Again with the "everyone". Not trying to sound angry or anything but I tend to read the mane 6's dialogue in their voices and that sort of kills it for me.

Anyway, still a great story.
