I try to be original in my fanfics. Be warned though, i'm not much of a writer and a grammar nazi would be appreciated.


After finding and rescuing a desolate Trixie in the Everfree Woods, Spike realizes that he may harbor feelings for her. But after a recent heartbreak, is Spike willing to give love another chance?

Note: this is my first attempt at a Fimfiction. Any constructive criticism would be nice. Rated teen just in case

Now here's a pairing I haven't seen before. :moustache::heart::trixieshiftright:?

Anyway, I was hunting for mistakes being the critic I am, and miraculously, I only found one!
“I hope your going to be okay...”
It's You're, but I think it was a slight word slip rather than spelling.
Great buildup! PLEASE CONTINUE!

Well, right off the bat, before I actually read anything, I'd give this in the way of criticism: Try and find a more creative title. TrixieSpike, while... shall we say, indicative of the premise... isn't very interesting. The description is much better, although still a little bland. They may be "minor" things compared to the actual body of the story, but they really help grab a reader into the work and make them interested enough to read it.

You know what pairing I haven't seen before? Well, after this one.

I haven't ever seen a Spike/Discord pairing.

But that's not important.

This fic, I like this fic, do not fail me.

I LOVE IT! the way you right is good I want to see more I LOVE IT!

Interesting pairing indeed. I don't think I've seen a :trixieshiftright:X:moustache: fic before. It has been good so far and I didn't spot any mistakes other than the one FlutterShay already mentioned. You have my attention, so I'll keep this on my radar.

Good luck with your future chapters.

:trixieshiftright::heart::moustache: = Instant favorite.

I got so very excited when I saw this pairing that I didn't even notice how ridiculously obvious the title is. Seriously, I've been aching for a TrixiexSpike pairing forever.

As for how you're doing with it, you have a pretty firm grasp of the English language, but most of the dialog feels cheap and hackneyed, like you pulled out as many clichés as you could because you didn't quite know how these characters would pot these emotions into words. But that's nothing more experience won't fix, so keep writing! And reading. Read lots of books.

Can't wait for this to continue.

Interdasting... :derpyderp1:
You have my attention.

this caught my eye, please continue this story, fellow brony

929412 : Fix'd

929414 : I'm sorry, but it's what i thought of and i'm sticking to it. And from these comments, It seems to be attracting attention nicely enough.

Trixie and Spike? Well, let's see... he's kinda smart because of all work he's done for Twilight, but still an child without much expirience... she's talented and good with social interactions but lacks humility... They complete each other well.

Interesting concept, now tracking

strange paring but good opening this is a story to pay attention to

M O A R spells NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:pinkiegasp:

Not bad, new and interesting. I like it.

Okay, after reading this through (yeah, I know I'm slow), I have some actual critique for you.

First, on the technical issues. A number of places, you misused "Your". Remember "Your" is "belonging to you", "you're" is "you are". There were at least two or three places still left with that mistake. Also, make sure you capitalize properly. A couple of places, Spike and Rarity's names lacked capitalization, and there's an extra capital on the "One being" in the first paragraph. Finally, I found a typo in the phrase "but even we do start dating" (I think you wanted an "if" in there). Overall not a bad showing, but it could definitely use an editing pass.

Now, onto the story side. First thing's first: Why is Spike "confessing" to Rarity? You made mention of the Fire Ruby, so it's definitely after Secret of My Excess, an episode which makes it fairly clear that Rarity knows about Spike's feelings. The premise isn't bad, it just feels a bit off. Take the same situation and make it about Spike asking Rarity out rather than "confessing his feelings", and it would work a lot better.

Lastly, the actual writing. This is by far the most subjective area, so take it with a grain of salt. A few times, especially during the actual confession, the language felt a bit... how do I say this. A bit archaic and high-blown for a baby dragon talking to his crush. A bit of poetic language is to be expected in such a situation, but it feels a little out of character even so. Not badly so, but just a bit. As a final note, I'll say just this: be more descriptive. The fact that Twilight "felt a pang of guilt" tells be what's going on, but it isn't very interesting. Likewise where "Rarity looked a bit distraught." Try to show how they're acting and feeling with words, rather than just describing their mental state. Talk about the painful knot the guilt makes in Twilight's stomach. Describe how Rarity's eyes shoot open wide and she covers her mouth in astonishment. A few little things like that go a long way to making your writing more interesting.

Overall, it's a pretty decent story. Far from perfect, but more than acceptable for a first attempt.

PS. My comments about the title still stand. It certainly attracted attention, but that's mostly just people drawn in by the unconventional ship. A fun and interesting title will generally serve you better than just using the name of the shipping pair, especially if you ever attempt a story where the pairing itself is less of a draw. You're under no obligation to change it, of course, but at least keep it in mind for the future.

947356 : Thank you for your critical acclaim, I'll revise it again and take note of this for my further stories. Until then, feel free to continue to critique further chapters. But seriously, take it easy. As you said, it's good enough for a first attempt.

" “The more the merrier! " I would have stopped reading this fic for that reference, but it's too interesting.

until now i like it, hope to see more soon

I would like some more please. I've loved it so far. You may continue.

Hunter C. Creed

i still extremely dislike rarity

967954 Well she would be technically a paedophile if she were to date Spike. Just saying!:coolphoto:

Sooooo... are we getting another chapter soon?

Hunter C. Creed

What a twist! :twistnerd:

:trixieshiftright::moustache: awesome.

A new story element, I see.

“You know Trixie, your a lot different then when we first saw you."

So your sure you used you're 'you're's' properly? (mindbuck, it's you're btw)

B'aww. So sweet. :heart: I love the fluff and all, but, if you don't mind a bit of a critique...

The pacing is just far too fast to really get invested in the story. You need to slow down, explain things more clearly, delve into the characters minds and explain how they feel in a less simplistic manner. Of course, when explaining these details, you can't go overboard. Otherwise the reader will lose interest... You're on the write track to improving, and you could do a whole lot worse.

The only other problem I really have is that you do so much explaining about how things work off screen. Instead of just saying that Trixie and the others bonded over time, show it. It's a lot harder to do that, but it adds to the story. Its like someone explaining a movie to their friend. It'll never be as awesome as experiencing it themselves.

Please, don't take these as major faults. You're certainly pretty dang good, you just need some practice and some guidance. You could easily use Google to look for some help on how to do these things. :twilightsmile: Worthy of a like, but I'm afraid I won't be tracking.

Yeah, but it's true Snips and Snails are retarded. They think every story is true and that getting covered in gum and being shaved bald makes them cool. They are the kinda guys that would see something on Jackass and try to copy it, fail and win a Darwin award.

I see a couple of tiny grammar mistakes, and a couple of pacing issues, but otherwise it's great.

HOLY CELESTIA MY BROKE BRAIN. Ow oh well good job with the fluff.

Trike FTW! Can't wait for next chapter!

I'm looking forward to more, but I don't think the twist is neccesary. Spiker might be a baby but he's a baby dragon so their ages still would have worked. Still, good job, looking forward to the next chapter!

I think my brain snapped from to much awesomeness:pinkiecrazy:

that teasing part really got me. I was not expecting that. It was at that point that I now hate everypony.

Then I loved them all again during the party.

Excellent chapter. :moustache:

Dang i! You ruined it. I was gonna say pedo Trixie, and then you made her a filly. I am OK with this however. :flutterrage::fluttercry::yay:


I guess i'll just have to write slower.
Meh. I thought i was doing good.

Much as I love the concept of shipping Trixie and Spike, I can't say this is a great story. But it isn't bad, that's for darn sure. That twist just now was a terrific idea, although I thought for a second she was disguising some ugly deformity or something. It shows you're capable of writing a story with more going on beneath the surface; but next time you do that, drop some vague hints to foreshadow the revelation. Still, this concept of filly Trixie disguising herself really opens my mind to new avenues to explore with her character. It really is a great idea.

I say take PrometheusDark's advice. Everything he said is full of win, and I could never have said it as well as he did. You are doing well, but there's always room for improvement.

I don't know what to say. I honestly didn't see that coming :derpytongue2:
I find myself thinking this needed some foreshadowing. I mean something that at least hints at what to come. Even dropping in something like, 'she was acting like a filly who had just been scolded'. That would have at least given us a small of clue.

Other than that and a couple of spelling and grammar mistakes, this is good. Keep it up.

hmmmm so all this time trixie was a kid?.......... that........makes........logical sense and im not questioning it! :pinkiehappy:

An interesting story, a fun read.
It was enjoyable with such an unusual shipping pair, yet it worked out.
Kudos to you.
Also, the part were Trixie reveals herself as a child.
I almost gave up on the story.
But i will stick around to see where this goes

Sorry bros, taking my time on this chapter. I'm trying to make sure it's not rushed so it's going to be a bit.

1185107 WHO CARES IF IT IS RUSHED! JUST MAKE IT ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:

Sorry for being so late with this one guys.
Truth be told, School started and i neglected this for two months. I didn't start working on this until about two weeks ago. ( ._.)

But, regardless, here's the new chapter, I promise I won't take this long to write the next. Enjoy! :raritywink:

Quick questions:
1. Wouldn't the good Doctor be opposed to that sort of thing?
2. Why you so AWSOME?
3. When can we expect the next one? :twilightblush:
