"Pffft, yeah, well..." Rainbow Dash folded her arms as she leaned against the buildingside again. "I can't treat my adjustable shower nozzle to dessert on the town."


"Uhm..." Sunset gulped, cracking a smile. "You're all bundled up like a winter elf!"

"Oh... uhm... th-thanks?" Twilight tittered.

"Er... not like Will Ferrel in a Christmas movie elf, but more like Link in Breath of the Wild elf... or maybe even like Level Seventy Druid in Northrend elf!"

"... ... ...?" Twilight merely gaped at her.

"Ha-HA! Alright...!" Sunset clenched her teeth, looking aside. "Don't talk about video games. Don't talk about video games. Don't talk about video games..."


She giggle-snorted, giggle-snorted again, then cleared her throat. "Soooooooo... while you both think about what you'll be wanting to EAT tonight..."

Sunset gulped.

Twilight squirmed in her seat.

"...what can I get ya to drink?"

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

This space talk.

I love it.

I desire more.

"Oh yeah?" Rainbow pointed back at Fluttershy. "Did you have to endure two full hours of National Geographic ASMR?"

Alright, that got a good solid laugh out of me.

Oh my god, a new SunLight skirtsfic! Christmas is coming early! :heart:

This was adorable as all hell. Great story.:twilightsmile:

My official comment: Super. Loved this.

My unofficial comment: if you make a sequel about Twilight and Sunset spending their tenth date trying to smuggle rocket fuel into Equestria, you know what you should call it?
Short skirts and explotions!

I regret nothing.

"Heehee! A date among the starsssss! WoooOooOoooOoo..." Starlight giggled, pausing to fan herself. "Oh goodness! I'm starting to sound like Pinkie Pie!"


This entire story was disastrously adorable and I loved every second of it.
Your EqG characterizations are just so dayum cute it's unfair. :heart:

Cool cosmology.

"Heeheehee..." Twilight pointed at Sunset's top. "I dig the swell hoodie."

I see what you did there.

Flash Sentry!" Rainbow Dash snarled. "All you've ever dated is Flash Sentry! Flash sentry is not people!"

"Mmmmm..." Fluttershy twiddled her gloved fingers, eyes dancing with flickering holiday lights across the street. "She has a point."

Sounds about right. :eeyup:

Tee hee hee


Oh how I love that Carl!

I'm betting Skirts came up with the title "Bacon and Egghead" and then said "Goddammit now I need to write another Sunlight fic."

Sunset why'd you go and do that?! Now poor Pinkie it's going to have to mop Twilight off the floor:derpytongue2:

Dude... They headcannon is awesome. There so needs to become a story with it.

Ri2 #22 · Dec 24th, 2017 · · · IX ·

Now you have to write a story where they visit those worlds, you know that right?

Dude, it's SSAE we're talking about here. That title pun is enough reason for him to write it :rainbowlaugh:

Absurdly cute with exceedingly awesome amounts of worlbuilding interwoven. A+, keep doing it, Merry Christmas to everyone :raritywink:

I'm reading this on Christmas so it's basically a Christmas present for me :twilightsmile:

legs instantly swiveling pigeon-toed

Ever notice there's a few words Skirts really likes? :twilightsmile:

"LookagainatthatdotThat'shereThat'shomeThat'susOniteveryoneyouloveeveryoneyouknow everyoneyoueverheardof..."

I just fell in love with Twi again. :pinkiecrazy:

(However, that first word is consider - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wupToqz1e2g - and I do think Twi would remember that even in her presently frazzled state. :trollestia: )

"I'm talking like Chernobyl levels of boo-boos!" Rainbow Dash charaded a mushroom cloud with her hands. "Fukushima levels of shit-bricking!" She slapped at a randomly flittering moth in the sunset. "Three Mile Islands of epic fu—"

Rainbow is the best therapist.

"Easy on the whipped cream, Pinkie! It's their first date, after all!"

I have absolutely no idea what M-rated fic this is referencing. :trollestia:

I experienced multiple love overloads while reading this. Friggin' adorable.

Is so awkwardly, painfully ADORABLE!

Freud would have a field day with ya AJ

Those two ar emade for each other, if it weren't for the whole 'fightinf for control' thing they have, although that could make things interesting in bed I suppose.

"Heeheehee..." Twilight pointed at Sunset's top. "I dig the swell hoodie."

From miles away, Spike's doggy ears perk up.

Oh this is just precious. I mean, it's easy to make Sunlight charming, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be taken as a compliment that this does so wonderfully.

Okay that last line was funny.

Looked up the swans mating thing. Wait, is that where the heart shape comes from?

I never really imagined Sunset being quite that nerdy before. I mean if it were...


...Do I dare bring up Timber?



I have absolutely no idea what M-rated fic this is referencing

Well I don't in any case. PM me?

Damn Pinkie


Twilight scooted into her seat, murmuring away from Sunset:


Oh god :pinkiehappy:

Pinkie being the voice of the readers as always.

"Heeheehee..." Twilight pointed at Sunset's top. "I dig the swell hoodie."

He did it! He did the thing!

Hm, I'm a bit surprised AJ and Dashie aren't in the same car, because if I know anything about SS&E stories... :raritywink:

Rarity applejack Applejack hard.

I'm pretty sure this is a typo, but at the same time this is hilarious to try and mentally picture.

'Now listen here, ya little scamp! I ain't takin' no more of yer sass no longer! Pucker up, y'all!' And she scoops her petite lil' figure up, cradlin' her all nice and gentle... so that she knows that even though she could very easily run away with them lil' athletic legs of hers,
y'know, songs taught on the farm since the beginning of time—until the varmint's raspy voice's been reduced to a lil' cooing sound 

Um... AJ? The subtext is rapidly becoming text. :trollestia:

Do you need your hat?

her shoulders shimmied slightly as she smiled

And I'm guessing Sunset's eyes sparkled. :trollestia:

"Yup!" Rainbow Dash gripped the dormant wheel of the car, smiling devilishly. "And if I was her, I'd know just how to do it too."

Ooooh, incoming thinly veiled Appledashery. :ajsmug:


The nerdgasm :pinkiehappy: (both theirs and mine)

"Well... maybe... maybe not..." Sunset shrugged. "Most scientists think that our entire civilization probably came from Eoh or the the fifth moon of Ashva ..."

I was about to comment on what that name reminded me of before I remembered who wrote this. :rainbowlaugh:

Ashva is a new one, though. I love learning new literal horsewords.

Also, the tantalizing glimpses of yet another fascinating and mindblowing universe, especially one that is completely different from the Austraeoh/Appledashery one.

"Like... like..." Twilight gasped yet again. She pointed. "Hooft, Thorn and Susskind!"

Hee! Now there's a physicist whose name is already a horsepun. :pinkiehappy:

(However, in the spirit of nitpicking I have to point out that the name is t' Hooft, not Hooft.)

Rarity looked back and forth. Back and forth. Backandforthand—"RRRRGH! I CANNOT STAND IT ANYMORE! " Marching forward, she grabbed Applejack and Rainbow Dash fiercely by the shoulders and yanked them both together. "There!" A collective kick to both their rears, and she huffed: "And don't you dare split yourselves up until you've walked three laps doing nothing but talking!"

This is the Appledashery ending I'm hoping for. :trollestia:

Rarity led the way, and the two gently walked down the sidewalk, opposite of Applejack and Rarity.

Her name is Rarity, not Ubiquity. There should be a maximum of one of her per universe. :trollestia:

Twilight sighed vaporously. "Yeah. I guess you're right. But still..." She winked mischievously. "What if a tiny serendipitous cabal of like-minded scientific geniuses happened to... mmmmmm... I dunno..."

Sunset Shimmer droned. "What? Friggin' smuggle rocket fuel through the mirror and attempt to fire a space probe beyond the orbit of Equus all on their lonesome?"

"Heehee—who knows! It could work!"

Skirts, you do know you just promised us a sequel, don't you? :twilightsmile:

space horse ... unicorn

Space unicorn
Soaring through the stars
Delivering the rainbows all around the world

"Error! In! Loading! Flash! Page!"

Goddammitskirts :rainbowlaugh:

"Here..." She grabbed his hoodie's collar and leaned in, eyebrows wagging. "...let's upload a patch shall we?"

The two kissed on the lips.

Pie kissin' mah sentry! :ajsmug:
