Good authors too, who once knew better words, Now only use four-letter words writing prose. Anything goes. :raritywink:


Hardcopy is the head of the publishing company that publishes the Adventures of Daring do. He is also a huge fan of hers. Not just of the books either, of the Mare herself. Moreso than anything else. He had never met a pony like her before, nor does he think he ever will again.

The problem? Daring Do doesn't exactly feel the same way. He has long since accepted that.

At least... He thought he had.

::Sigh:: Some of us never have had, do not have, and never shall have an attraction that isn't unrequited. And for us there is no getting over it.

I walk through the office, greet the front desk clerk, Secretariat

I see what you did there!:twilightsheepish:

"Magnetic North????" No way! Daring Do and Ahuixotl forever!

This story was charming and made me smile. You have every right to be proud of it. :twilightsmile:

Beautiful. Hits close to home.

Been there. It always hurts.

Still, this was really good. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Meant to pay lip service to this in the Authors Notes, but the title comes from a song by the band Halestorm, which I always interpreted as a breakup song.

Thank all of you for reading!

I went and reread this as if I'd never seen it before. The jokes were fresh, the wit was new, and the plot twist ... well, it's in the description, but I was still invested. That's an achievement for a writer. You've got talent here.

Aaaaand I see some errors that slipped through the net again. Most of the narration is in present tense, but part of it (near the description of Penny Stocks) switches to past.

I don't recall whether the front desk clerk's name was in Light's original draft, or if I snuck in that inside joke. Either way, great to see people caught it!

Unrequited love sucks.
