Romantic...Other Worlds? - TheHardie-Boy

After meeting an admittedly attractive unicorn from another world, Jake decides to see this world

Goodbyes and New Beginnings (by Peni Parker)

“You’re sure it’s okay if I come with you to CHS for the day, Sunset?” Jake Taylor asked his newest girlfriend as she gathered her things in her backpack for another day of school.

“I’m sure, Jake,” Sunset Shimmer blithely replied as she put a textbook into her backpack. “Why do you think it wouldn’t be?”

“Because I’m not a student there,” Jake pragmatically stated, feeling that maybe Sunset had forgotten that little fact.

“Well, neither was I when I first came to this world,” Sunset began to explain. “But I just showed up one day and the next thing I knew I was a student. Same thing with Princess Twilight.”

“That’s…strange,” Jake commented, feeling a tad confused that anyone could just show up at CHS and become a student without going through any administrative stuff.

“Yeah, maybe,” Sunset replied as she finished packing her backpack and slung it around her shoulders. “Come on, we better get going.”

“Right,” Jake said as he opened the door for Sunset, taking one last look around the apartment before stepping outside and closing the door behind him.

It was Jake’s last day in Sunset’s world, and he was feeling a mixture of emotions. One the one hand, he was glad that he would soon be back in Equestria with Twilight, Starlight, and all his other friends, especially Twilight. But on the other, he knew he was going to miss being with Sunset. She was an amazing girlfriend, and he was sad that he wasn’t going to be spending near as much time with her after today.

“You okay, Jake?” Sunset concernedly asked as the two of them made their way to CHS.

“Y-Yeah,” Jake hesitantly answered, rubbing the back of his head. “I just have a lot on my mind right now.”

“I get it,” Sunset sympathetically answered as she linked arms with Jake. “But believe me when I say that everything will be fine. You’re a strong guy, Jake Taylor, and you can handle whatever life throws at you.”

Jake couldn’t help but smile at his girlfriend after hearing her kind words.

“Thanks, Sunset,” he said before planting a small kiss on his girlfriend’s cheek. “You’re right, everything will be fine.”

All Sunset could do was give a cute little giggle and blush with embarrassment after being the recipient of such a public display of affection.

“So, what’s the plan for today?” Jake inquired.

“Oh, right, the plan,” Sunset hectically said as she remembered the plan she’d created with her friends the previous night. “The plan is that you’re going to spend each period with a different one of my friends. We all worked it out so that you’ll be with at least one of each period. Then, at the end of the day, we’ll all see you off through the portal.”

“Wow, really?” Jake asked, amazed that Sunset and her friends were able to work out the logistics of making sure he got to spend time with each of them. “I’m impressed, Sunset.”

“Well, Twilight did most of the work figuring out the rotation,” Sunset admitted. “But we all just really wanted to make sure we got a chance to spend a little more time with you before you left.”

“I’m glad,” Jake sweetly praised as he gave Sunset another peck on the cheek. “I’m really going to miss you all.”

“Stop kissing me in public,” Sunset giggled as she unlinked arms to give Jake a playful jab. “It’s embarrassing.”

Jake couldn’t help but give a small chuckle at the blush that was growing on Sunset’s face.

“You know you love it~” he playfully replied as he went in for another kiss, only for Sunset to dodge it and plant one on his cheek.

“Gotcha~” She bewitchingly whispered in Jake’s ear as he now dawned a blush on his face.

“Yeah, you got me,” Jake replied as he pulled Sunset into a very close hug and stared into her beautiful turquoise eyes. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

The intimate moment Sunset was currently sharing with Jake brought back memories of the passionate night they’d recently shared, and it made her heart race.

“You know, if you wanted, we could go back to the apartment and just spend the entire day having fun together,” she seductively said as she stared back at Jake with bedroom eyes.

Now Jake’s heart was racing as well.

“Sunset, Jake!” Twilight Sparkle’s voice could be heard yelling from just down the street.

Jake and Sunset quickly broke their hug and tried to look as natural as possible as they turned around to see Twilight running up to them.

“Good morning!” Twilight cheerfully greeted them once she was close enough.

“M-Morning, Twi.” Sunset said as nonchalantly as she could, which wasn’t very nonchalant at all.

“Morning.” Jake said a bit more convincingly.

“So Jake, did Sunset tell you about our plan for today?” Twilight asked, giving no hint that she’d witnessed the intimate moment the couple had just shared.

“Yeah, she did.” Jake confirmed. “And she told me you were the one who worked out most of the details. Nice job, Twilight.”

Unsurprisingly, Twilight began to blush at Jake’s praise.

“Oh it wasn’t that difficult,” Twilight humbly responded. “It was easy to create an algorithm once I knew everyone’s class schedules and…”

“Okay, well, we better get going so we’re not late,” Sunset interjected as she grabbed Jake’s hand. “You’re with me first, Jake, let’s go.”

“O-Oaky,” Jake confusingly replied as Sunset started moving. “See you later, Twilight.”

“See you later, Jake,” Twilight called out back to him.

As Jake was dragged up the street by Sunset, he got the strangest feeling that he’d been through this scenario with her and Twilight before.

All in all, Jake’s day at CHS had been a good one. Like Sunset had said, he managed to spend each class period with either her or one of her friends. He’d had first period math with Sunset, second period history with Rarity, third period science with Twilight, lunch period with everyone, fifth period art with Pinkie, sixth period shop with Applejack, and finally seventh period economics with Fluttershy and Rainbow. By the end of it all Jake was even more impressed with Twilight’s scheduling, since not only had he gotten to spend time with everyone but he also never had the same class twice.

But now it was the end of the day, and everyone was gathered around the Wondercolts statue to see Jake off back to Equestria.

“Thank you all for everything you’ve done for me during my visit,” Jake heartfully expressed to the group. “I’m really going to miss all of you.”

“We’ll miss you as well, darling,” Rarity replied.

“Uh-huh,” Fluttershy softly agreed, nodding her head.

“It’s been great havin’ you ‘round, partner,” Applejack chimed in.

“We really hope you’ll come back and visit sometime, Jake,” Twilight spoke up.

“Yeah, don’t be a stranger, dude.” Rainbow Dash concurred.

“I promise I’ll throw you a big party on your next visit!” Pinkie exclaimed as she threw some confetti into the air. “WHOO HOO.”

Despite being slightly confused where the confetti came from, Jake couldn’t help but laugh along with everyone at Pinkie’s over-the-top, super hyper antics.

“Promise you’ll come back and visit?” Sunset asked once the laughter died down as she lovingly looked Jake in the eyes.

“Of course I will,” Jake replied as he stared just as lovingly back at Sunset.

“Um, why don’t we give Jake and Sunset some privacy, y’all.” Applejack suggested, picking up on the growing intimacy between the two.

Everyone else nodded in agreement and headed towards the school, leaving Jake and Sunset alone to talk.

“So, this is it, huh?” Sunset ardently stated.

“Yeah, I guess it is,” Jake answered as he broke eye contact with Sunset, feeling the full weight of the moment.

Without any warning, Jake felt Sunset’s arm wrap around him in warm and loving hug, placing her head against his chest.

“I know you’re nervous about returning to Equestria after everything that’s happened between us during your visit,” Sunset began to say as her eyes filled with tears. “I know you’re afraid of how things are going to be with Twilight and Starlight, especially Twilight. But all you need to do is this; show them how much you love them, like you did with me. Everything will be all right.”

Almost instinctively, Jake hugged Sunset back as tears of his own started to flow down his cheeks.

“You’re a really great girlfriend, Sunset,” Jake tearfully said. “I’m going to miss you so, so much.”

“I know, I’ll miss you too,” Sunset said as she lifted her head from Jake’s chest and once again looked him right in the eyes. “But just remember, this isn’t goodbye, it’s just goodbye until next time.”

Then, almost as if Jake and Sunset were reading each other’s minds, they leaned forward and shared the most passionate kiss they’d ever shared together. It lasted for a good minute before Sunset broke it.

“You better get going,” She remorsefully said. “They’re probably getting worried about you.”

Jake simply nodded as she stepped in front of the portal, turning around one last time to get a glimpse at Sunset.

“I love you, Sunset Shimmer,” he said. “Oh, and one more thing. Next time I’m here, I gotta here you and the girls play...and see Twilight’s talking dog.” With that, Jake finally stepped through the portal.

“I know. I love you too, Jake Taylor.” Sunset said back, though she was pretty sure Jake couldn’t hear her through the portal.

“I’m getting worried.” Princess Twilight Sparkle restlessly said as she paced back and forth alongside the mirror portal, starting to hyperventilate a bit. “Jake should’ve been back by now. What if something terrible happened to him?”

“Breathe, Twilight, breathe.” Starlight Glimmer gently instructed her friend as she placed a supportive hoof on her shoulder. “I’m sure Jake’s fine. He probably just got caught up in saying goodbye to everypony over there.”

“Maybe,” Twilight unconvincingly stated. “But maybe I should go over there just to be sure.”

Twilight started to make her way over toward the front of the mirror, when all of a sudden, it activated, throwing Jake out like a bullet out of a gun, clear to the other side of the room.

“Seriously, someone please fix that thing,” Jake hazily said as he laid on the floor.

“JAKE!” Twilight worryingly shouted as she quickly flew over to her boyfriend, looking him over from head to toe once she reached him. “Are you okay? Did you hit your head? I’m so, so sorry. I promise I’ll do something about that portal.”

“I-I’m fine Twilight,” Jake replied as he got to his feet chuckling at his marefriend. “I’m just a little shaken up is all.”

“Oh thank goodness!” Twilight exclaimed, wrapping Jake in a tight hug, now that she knew he wasn’t hurt, a hug that Jake reciprocated without hesitation.

“Hey, don’t I get a hug too?” Starlight playfully asked as she too made her way over to Jake.

“Of course you do, Starlight. C’mere,” Jake answered as he lifted his left arm and wrapped it around Starlight once she was close enough.

“We’re so glad you’re back,” Twilight said through tears of joy.

“It’s good to be back.” Jake replied as she hugged his two marefriends tighter.

Jake, Twilight, and Starlight all hugged in silence for about two minutes.

“So, anything interesting happen while I was gone?” Jake eventually asked as he broke the hug.

“Oh who cares about what happened here,” Twilight said with a wave of her hoof. “Tells us about what happened with you in Sunset’s world.”

All of a sudden Jake’s happy smile faded, much to Twilight’s and Starlight’s confusion.

“About that,” he began to very solemnly say. “I want to tell you both everything, but there’s one thing I need to tell you both right now and what it means for our relationship.”

Twilight and Starlight looked at each other with puzzled expressions, but didn’t say anything before returning their attention to Jake.

“While I was over there, I found out that I love Sunset and that I want her to be a part of our herd,” Jake began to tell them. “Not only that, but you should both know that Sunset and I became…very intimate during our visit. But it doesn’t mean that I care about her more than I care about either of you. In fact, being intimate with Sunset made me realize just how much I love you both, and how I want to show you just how much I love you.”

“You...you mean you…” Starlight began to say in astonishment.

“Yes,” Jake said as he felt tears form in the corners of his eyes. “I want to become intimate with both of you.”

And with that, Twilight and Starlight also started to cry as they buried their muzzles into the sides their boyfriend.

“Oh, Jake, you have no idea how happy I am right now,” Twilight spoke up.

“Me too,” Starlight added.

“I love you both so much more than words can describe,” Jake replied.

There was about a minute of silence, aside from the sounds of happy crying, before Starlight broke off from the hug.

“I guess I should be heading off to bed then,” she commented as she headed for the doorway.

“Wait, Starlight,” Twilight called out as she too broke away from the hug. “It’s your night with Jake, remember? We agreed that you’d be the one to have him his first night back.”

“Yeah, but that was before all this talk of intimacy,” Starlight responded as she turned back around. “Twilight, I know you’ve been waiting for this much longer than I have, so it’s okay. Spend tonight with Jake, I can wait one more night.”

Fresh tears started to flow from Twilight’s eyes, happy that Starlight was willing to let her spend the night with Jake.

“Thanks, Starlight,” she gratefully said.

“Just don’t get too crazy, you two,” Starlight playfully remarked as she left the room. “I’m only willing to wait one night.”

“Goodnight, Starlight,” Jake yelled out into the hallway.

“Goodnight, Jake,” Starlight could be heard yelling back.

Now that they were alone, Twilight and Jake just sort of stared awkwardly at each other for a few seconds until Twilight spoke up.

“So, should we head to my bedroom?” she unadroitly asked.

“Yes, I think we should,” Jake replied as he unexpectedly picked Twilight up and carried her out of the room.

“Oh my,” Twilight stated, surprised. “You’re getting me so anxious”

“Good~” Jake answered as seductively as he could as they reached Twilight’s room. “Because I’m about to show you just how much I love you, Twilight Sparkle.”

“I can’t wait,” Twilight remarked as she opened the door with her magic.

Once they were inside, Twilight closed the door with her magic, and braced herself for what was undoubtedly going to be one of the greatest, most amazing nights of her life.

Author's Note:

And that's story #9 (if you count Romantic Mischief). I hope you all enjoyed reading this even though it didn't do nearly as good as Romantic Meetings, but I can't win 'em all. Look forward to a few more chapter of Romantic Mischief in the near future.

And seriously, I can't thank Peni Parker nearly enough for this. Do me a favor and go check her stories out. They're worth the time, I promise

This was a wonderful side story; excellent work from both of you. As much as I enjoyed Jake's time in Sunset's world (and frankly, I kinda hate to see it end), I'm excited to get back to Mischief and see what happens next, cause it definitely looks like there's a lot of mischief in store for the lovebirds.

And so it ends, it was a fun ride. Almost fitting that a Sunset x human story is ending now, and it won't be too much longer before my own Sunset x human story starts.

Ahhhh! I loved these so much!
Thanks you so much you two.

Thanks. I keep telling you, you’re allowed to write a chapter for Romantic Mischief

I honestly thought about mentioning that, but you did, so okay


No problem, and if you want more from Peni, go check out her story No Longer Living In A Van Down By The River. It’s better than it sounds and worth reading, I promise

Heh, I appreciate the offer, but I'm no writer. I just love to read.

Good story.

“Well, neither was I when I first came to this world,” Sunset began to explain. “But I just showed up one day and the next thing I knew I was a student. Same thing with Princess Twilight.”

“That’s…strange,” Jake commented, feeling a tad confused that anyone could just show up at CHS and become a student without going through any administrative stuff.

Canon seems to skip over these kinds of things. My headcanon is that Sunset bought fake papers to be able to live her life.

Sunset Snowflake is pure garbage.

..............................................................................................................................................................................................thanks for sharing your stupidly long opinion

thanks for sharing your crap story with this crap character

No wonder that guy got banned.

So, could you answer this for me? What's the deal with the stories Romantic Nights, A day in the life, and Romantic...Otherworlds? all labeled as sequels to Romantic Mischief? Do these three stories go in any particular chronological order, or are they all like alternate sequels that disregard one another?

They don’t disregard each other, there’s just no right order to reading them

Thanks, so I can read them in any order. Like 3 alternate endings?

Not really. Other Worlds was written in the middle of Mischief, and Nights is just a side story altogether. The only actual ending is the last chapter of Mischief

Very nice expansion to this series' universe. I really like the composition of this herd too. Good job. Thanks for creating and sharing.
