This story is a sequel to When All of Your Wishes Are Granted...

At Sunrise’s belated welcoming party, Rarity and Applejack share how, after a brief breakup, they were reunited again.

It seems that after a careful analysis of the situation, the Cutie Mark Crusaders determined that the older girls’ personal lives were none of their business. They therefore made the mature decision to leave Applejack and Rarity to resolve their relationship however they saw fit, without interference.

Just kidding. They pretty much set everything on fire.

(Chronology Note: the framing device of this story takes place early in Season Five, but the story told by the characters flashes back to events in Season One.)

This chronology continues in To Dance Without Reason.

Part of the Sunset Rising continuity.

Whoo, boy... :facehoof: And I though the CMC learned their lesson after nearly "losing" Big Mac and Cheerilee to a love poison. Those fillies...

“Roar!” yelled the Frumious Bandersnatch,

Shun! Shuuuuun!

I do like how its the sisters' not performing their talents that really gets the Crusaders concerned. Even when they didn't know, their souls did.

Which makes me the perfect chairmare for the day, since it gives us a clear, unbiased, rational approach.

Because if there's any set of adjectives that describe Scootaloo, it's clear, unbiased, and rational.
(Why do you spell her name with a "k," anyway?)

This will end in tears of laughter, I'm sure. Looking forward to seeing where you go with it.

Ah, but that was trying to force two ponies together. This is trying to mend a broken relationship. Totally different, at least according to Crusader logic.

The flashbacks in this tale take place during Season One, before Rarity came out at the Grand Galloping Gala.

(Why do you spell her name with a "k," anyway?)

Um... I’m... certain there is a clear, unbiased, and rational reason for that... :rainbowderp:

I am glad to see Sunrise and Luna having some time together and Sunrise having fun with the CMC is nice, and maybe they can inspire her to get a cutie mark, since they're the experts =x ( :rainbowderp: though I am curious to their reactions of Sunrise not having one.) Would also like to see Celestia's reaction to her sister dating her former student's doppelganger.

I will confess, I am still mulling over exactly what Celestia’s stance on that will be. :trollestia:

As for the CMC’s reaction to finding out that Sunrise is a blank flank, I suspect their reaction will be a bit more predictable. :scootangel::yay:

"Questing" is certainly one way to describe the Crusade, yes.

Don’t usually see ‘em this time a’year. Not in months with a ‘Y’ in ‘em.

Huh. They hibernate through two months of winter, May, and July? Of course, given the days of the week, assuming month names will be the same is a risky proposition.

The failed plan montage is largely hilarious, though the regretful undercurrent adds some excellent depth. Still funny to imagine the Crusaders slamming two pony toys together and shouting "Kiss already!"

*nods sagely* Rarely seen, the jackalope is both shy and aloof. True sightings are rare, indeed. Fluttershy will be very excited.

Still funny to imagine the Crusaders slamming two pony toys together and shouting "Kiss already!"

Hee! Yes. :rainbowlaugh:

Glad the montage worked for you. Now, the weekdays are gone, and only the weekend remains. And we shall see what happens... :duck::applejackunsure:

The Cutie Mark Crusaders are often hilarious.

Oh good grief. Mistaking fireworks for candles is a mistake only the Crusaders could make. And giving fireworks to the Crusaders is a mistake only Pinkie could make. Absolutely wonderful.

Signs and counter-signs were created and exchanged. Unusual objects were hidden all over Ponyville, materials borrowed, purchased, or traded for. ‘Extravagance’ was a word for lesser ponies. No possibility was left unexplored, no resource untapped, and, above all, no explanations were given.

The overall effect for onlookers was like three extra Pinkie Pies. Again.

Ah, success through sheer, dumb luck and adrenaline-boosted casting. Most befitting the Crusade. And if anyone can fold space for the sake of her friends, it's Twilight.

Poor Pinkie. She just wants a princess of her own. Hopefully Twilight will soon learn that the less palatable parts of the relationship are optional; Twinkie makes for an adorable and wonderfully bizarre dynamic. Or I'm misreading the obvious and Pinkie's jealous of Sunrise. Either way, poor party horse.

Fascinating exercise in comparative causality. For want of a sister, the ship was lost... in another timeline. Thank you for showing us how the Crusade saved it in this one.

My pleasure. I loved writing this, and am so glad to have finally gotten this timeline to the point where I could! :moustache:

And you’re not misreading it. Pinkie’s not jealous, she genuinely is happy for Luna and Sunrise, just as she is for AJ and Rarity. She wouldn’t have them part for anything.

But, at the same time, she kinda could wish she‘d said something sooner in Luna’s case... and perhaps that she knew how to say more in Twilight’s case. Because, let’s face it, Twilight’s pretty awesome. :twilightsmile:

Which may seem a little conflicted, but that’s where she stands.

I don’t know exactly how yet, but I think she will find a suitable resolution. I certainly have no intention of just leaving her there. :pinkiesmile:

And as always, thank you for your kind words. :twilightsmile:

Yeah, I imagine it went something like:

Apple Bloom: Hey, Pinkie, can I borrow some of these candles?
Pinkie: (busy baking and prepping for another party, barely looks up) Uh-huh.
Apple Bloom: Thanks, you’re the best! (zips away)

Mistakes were made... :scootangel::facehoof:

Aaaw, Pinkie was in love with Luna? Man you can't end a story like this on something so sad. Here's hoping she finds the courage in time for Twilight.

Yes... alas, while Pinkie was working up her courage, trying to figure out how to approach Luna... time seems to have passed her by. Ironically, in my other continuity things may turn out quite differently. Meanwhile, I’m not certain quite where I will have this Pinkie land yet, or how. But I do intend her to be happy.
