This story is a sequel to The Challenge


Rainbow Dash has been happily engaged to Princess Twilight Sparkle, the love of her life, for several months. She's taken her on Hurricane's Way and shared in the rites of pegasus courtship. Too bad she forgot to tell mom and dad before they found out by reading the paper.

But that's just fine. It gives them the perfect excuse to go visit their little Dashie and meet the mare who stole her heart and became the wind beneath her wings.

It's amazing <3

Yes, all the yes. I have been wanting a sequel to continue this story, and I must say, you delivered perfectly. Thank you and well done good sir :twilightsmile:

Always nice to see this series continue. Amusing and heartwarming.

Man, what a shocker. An established set of fanfiction by a popular author hits the front page within minutes of it being posted.

I'm sure it's great, more of a StarTrix man myself, but I'm just surprised with how fast that was.

Amazing.

It's been a bit over an hour by my watch. And it probably has something to do with the number of readers and thumbs given in that span.

I do enjoy some nice and fluffy TwiDash.

Good story in my humble opinion. :pinkiehappy:

As always, some wonderful piece of fluff from you.

I'm a hopeless romantic. The one thing I love about this fandom is all of the ships that revolve around that adorkable purple mare. While I consider Twiluna to be my favorite pairing, Twidash is a close second.

Actually, depending on my mood, Twidash is my favorite.

This series has got to be one of the best in terms of pure fluff, with just enough hinted naughtiness.

Kudos to you.

But that's just fine. It gives them the perfect excuse to go visit their little Dashie and meet the mare who stole her heart and became the wind beneath her wings.

Is that a TAW reference I see before me?

Was hoping to see some Twidash with Rainbow parents :D

Really nice read :)

I've never read anything by them before. I was referencing the song.

Windy Whistles don't play! And twi wants to make some magic....whatever shall you do Dashie?

8240883 Oh, then disregard my comment, friendo.

Absolutely fantastic

Okay, even if I never read the previous stories, I don't think I really needed to. This could do well as a stand-alone fic, and it's cute and fluffy besides, just the way I like it.

sometimes it is sad if it is only a one-shot, but I think this is interessting enough to give it a chance.

Absolutely fantastic!

Or to put it another way...

the story and coverart are absolutely adorable

y u do dis to me bby

Windy Whistle brought a hoof to her mouth. “Dashie!” she gasped, a smile tugging at her lips. “You’re an underwing?”

“Y-Yeah,” Rainbow mumbled shyly. “I called for the challenge a bit after taking her on Hurricane’s Way. And … well …” She glanced at Twilight, the pinkish tinge in her cheeks spread throughout her face, all the way to the tips of her ears. “Twi pinned me.”

Awwwww :pinkiehappy:

Wait! :pinkiegasp: Did Dash just admit she was the sub and Twi was the dom in their relationship to her parents? :rainbowlaugh:

Anyway, it was lovely to read. :twilightsmile:

And now they need to go visit Twilight's parents, or are they gonna continue the family tradition of waiting until the last second to tell them?

Thanks for that, I'm gonna have to use it now :rainbowlaugh:

I feel like there should be a second chapter where Twilight's parents - having seen the same article - show up the next morning to get Twilight to spill the beans about this 'engagement', only for Twilight to have forgotten the lock and silence spells since the castle was supposed to be empty. Her parents bursting eagerly into her bedroom would be hilariously awkward...and then they could playfully jibe Twilight about 'pulling a Shining Armor'.

8241354
Oh, I would pay to see that!:rainbowlaugh:

out of her bathroom andthrough her house 

Whoops, missed a space there.

This story was a commission.
Commission the chapter.

8241378
Probably would, if I had the money...

Very adorable and lovely.

So was the chapter's title a reference to the movie by the same name?

Also, while I have your attention, I'm just going to say that those ellipses were a little weird, as in, jarring levels of weird, at least for me. It could just be me that finds it that way (in which case, feel free to ignore my rambling), but upon checking my syntax and grammar handbook, there are two ways to 'properly' write ellipses; the first is to have no space between the word and the next (x...x) or to have a space after, but attach them to the first word (x..._x). They are both equally correct, but really, consistency is more key than anything in a work, so you've got that there.

It was a very fun read. I enjoyed it a lot. Keep up the good work :)

Cute as fuck. All three of them (hadn't read the previous two before). More, we oh so need more! :rainbowkiss::twilightsheepish:

"Muffins"? You are dead to me. Hold this upvote for your lovely story while I run away sobbing at your horrible tastes.

Love seeing more to the 'hurricane way' universe good work. :yay:

Her full name is Derpy Ditzy Muffin Do Hooves

im giveing this my daww seal of approval

This is as good as gold!

I have to say this is easily in my top 10 favorite universe's for the world and relationship building alone!!! :moustache:

8241378
Alright we need to start a kickstarter for another chapter or 2. 1 for twi's parents and one for shining and Candace finding out! I would say one for the princesses finding out but I would bet.at least celestia already knows.

So who's with me!!!!! :yay:

8244926
Not to put a damper on this idea, but Twi's family already knew about this. I think they mentioned telling Night Light and Twilight Velvet (or at least Rainbow meeting them) during Hurricane's Way and the Royal Family (Celestia, Luna, Cadence, and Shining Armor) voiced their support and congratulations in the article Windy was reading in this story.

I could be misremembering though. Someone can feel free to correct me if that's the case.

SWEET GLORY IT CONTINUES!

I absolutely loved the first two installments of these stories. The pegasi culture and the way Twilight and Rainbow Dash were dating made it incredibly enjoyable to read. I can't wait to see where this one goes, but unfortunately, I'll have to wait until tonight.

I tend to read the darker stories here on the site. Murders and mysterious horrors.

But it's stories like this that remind me of why I like MLP in the first place: it's nice to enjoy something happy and joyful.

In a world full of zombies and disposable villains, there needs to be reminders about WHY we care about life. And watching two people / ponies fall in love is just the thing.
now to get my blood sugar levels checked lol

AaaaaaAAAAAAAAAH IT'S SO ADORABLE I LOVE IT

AHH!!!! CUTENESS OVERLOAD!!!!:rainbowkiss::pinkiegasp::raritystarry::pinkiehappy:
TWIDASH IS THE BEST!!!!

“C’mon,” she grumped as she pushed the door open and stepped inside. “Let’s get this over with.”

Or, I don't know, explain your romantic intention that day and tell them to either stay in a hotel or around your cloud mansion for the day and introduce them the next.

But then again, this is Rainbow Dash. :rainbowlaugh:

Okay, so I haven't read the previous story. But oh my gosh this was the most adorable little story! I loved it! And now I think I'll have to read the previous one.

And thus, my dwindling interest in what used to be my OTHER has been revitalized.

Screw plans Dash? Who needs them anyway? At times like this you gotta go with the flow. :rainbowdetermined2:

Hell of a way to find out your daughter's engaged though it's significantly better than a reveal via wedding invitation. It makes you wonder how Night Light and Twilight Velvet found out about and reacted to Shining's engagement though I still want a prequel where we see Rainbow meeting Twilight's parents.

Great trio of stories.

Great work! I featured the previous entries in your series on my podcast, so I had to feature this one on the most recent, episode 185 (as I stumbled through saying within it).

Liked the way you wrote Dash's parents.
