I'm older than your average brony, but then I've always enjoyed cartoons. I'm an experienced reviewer, EqD pre-reader, and occasional author.


While out on a rather standard errand, a young Rarity encounters a strange new filly. A hyperactive pink one, who seems to be struggling with her own newfound talent as well.

Part of the Jinglemas 2018 exchange, written as a gift for Tangerine Blast.

Yes, why did cutie marks tend to have things in threes?

That made me laugh out loud.
Very cute story.

What was the story Tangerine Blast wrote for you?

It wasn't a direct back and forth. He wrote a story for someone else, but it's up to us to post our own stories now, so I can't even look back at the list and see who wrote what. The person who drew my name didn't write one, so a couple of volunteers did, and I don't know who, so I don't even know where it might get posted, if at all.

This is quite lovely and very happy!

It is very true, as you show, that giving joy to others brings it to you, even more!

It is the spirit of Hearths Warming and of Friendship.

And the bell on the door ding-jingled its one-note tune, a high-pitched melody in the key of delicious.

I don’t know why, but that line really struck me in a profound way. Maybe I’ll figure it out one day.

This was lovely. It had great interactions between both characters and I really like Filly Rarity's thought process. Trying to think maturely but failing somewhat.

“I’ll need something a lot more powerful.

...When did she get her 'heavy artillery' license, anyway?

Brilliant work with each helping the other refine and better understand her talent. I love the idea of both having runaway muses so soon after finding their marks. An adorable, enjoyable read. Thank you for it.

This was a great read the interactions between Rarity and Pinkie were well written.

This one was a real charmer!

Her hair straightened out a tad, her eyes looked a little mad, she seemed to feel kind of bad—

That'd be too bad.
That'd be too bad?
That'd be too bad.

Great story. I imagine that with the frequent musical numbers that break out, a lot of Ponies must frequently have "sub-critical" songs going through their heads.

Wow! This was fun. You know, I can't remember the last time that Pinkie and Rarity shared an episode. It's too bad because the two of them have an interesting chemistry.

It's been quite a while since I read a Pascoite story, unless I'm much mistaken, but this was one hell of a reintroduction. I once again wish I'd saved my comments from the collab, but I love this as much as I did then. An absolutely wonderful take on both of these characters.

True, I hadn't seen you around in a while! I'm glad to have you reading again!

This was an enjoyable little read. :raritystarry: I liked how you reeled the chaotic tangents in and attributed a reason to them in the end, giving them a structured new form and culminating seemingly fragmented pieces of the story into something that was so cohesive the reader suddenly realizes they were never really loose threads in the tapestry at all. :derpyderp2:

This was also a very lively take on how Pinkie and Rarity might've interacted for the first time as fillies, and how they might've helped shape one another's creative passions into what they would eventually become in their adulthood. :pinkiehappy: A lovely story. Thank you so much for sharing. :twilightsmile:

but how often did a cutie mark constitute bad news?

At least once, for a certain light-purple filly.
