"Nothing is so trivial that it's not worth an extended, heated, hostile discussion." --Anonymous, 2020 | Buy me a ko-fi?


Applejack and Rainbow Dash engage in one final, ultimate battle, to prove once and for all who wears the pants in this relationship.

8/31/2020 - The Anarchyverse Version is the "canon" version of the story. The older/original had a few elements I've since realized don't reflect well on me, and so the updated chapter should be considered the REAL one.

Even as someone who doesn't ship AppleDash, the reactions to the fight were great... but I feel like it would have been much better had Dash somehow won in the end.

Second Best Princess from Equestrian Geographic ten years running,

Was there a consistent first place, or did it jostle around?

In any case, hilarious stuff throughout. You topple a couple threats to the nation, you're going to rack up XP. And every pony is magical to one degree or another. Thank you for a lovely bit of Appledashery.

At this rate, fifty bits says Equestria will only survive Appledash for another ten years

Silly turned to eleven. That would be something AJ and Dash would fight over.

Why would you get hate for this?

This was awesome :rainbowlaugh::ajsmug:

Read the last sentence again... :pinkiecrazy:

:duck: Now that Spikey has wings , He'll be a perfect model . . .
:twilightsheepish: you can make two
:moustache: Naw, We're already hitched the dragon way
:twilightoops: ???
:raritywink: His hatch day when he kidnapped oui and we spent the afternoon plummeting to our doom
:facehoof: What is it with my friends about marriage and the destruction of major population centers. . .
:flutterrage: DISCORD! PUT MANEHATTEN BACK! :yay:you already know how I feel!
:twilightangry2: What do I have to do to..............:moustache: Solar flare??? :raritywink: Lunar collision ? :trollestia: Mild sun burn?

Yeah, I can imagine the Apples doing something like this.:rainbowlaugh:

I really want to see a traditional Pie family engagement now...beating each other with rocks? I can only imagine Pinkie and Cheese doing something like that. Or, God forbid, MAUD! She would kill whoever she tried to "court" with rocks.

Can we get a Fluttercord engagement story, now? Maybe Discord has an equally weird and disturbing way of deciding on wedding things.

Accepting hate ?!

Nahh, this was beautiful :ajsmug:

Sigh, they both could have just worn suits. Loved it, nobody bests the Applepone.

Appledash is best ship, ten years running.


Intentional feghoot?

What's that?

A full and detailed story leading up to one pun.

Question before reading: How does this relate to the s9 finale, or is that ignored?

If you didn’t like some of the shipping implications of the finale, then you may not like it.

I have no problems with the ships. I just want to know which "timeline" this takes place in:

The pre-finale interpretation of Equestria we all had for 9 years, or a post-finale interpretation where Twilight left Ponyville.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask that question a lot from now on whenever I see particular ships. :facehoof:

Pre-Finale. Or, somewhere in between episode 25 and 26.

I dont think it is the story you want to hear my thoughts about the most so I'm gonna be brief on this one. Rainbow is best pony, I think F/F shipping the tomboyish rainbow coloured pegasus is ultimately detrimental to the LGBTTHISISHOWLONGIMEMORISEDIT community, and she is the one with actual combat training.

Therefore this battle shouldn't have happened and even if it did Rainbow should have won. But it's a comedy so it doesn't matter.

What does matter is that diamonds are easy to break. They are hard, but they are brittle. They are really hard to grind down, (which is why they are the ones usually doing the grinding) which Pinkie should know given where she grew up. Salty Chemist intermission over.

Otherwise this was a funny story, though I would have appreciated a bit sharper dialogue, fluttershy was basically an expostion machine and the other three didn't really take jabs at either each other or at the contestants. Which would have provided the appropriate funniness in the middle section which was a bit of a lull without it.

But the first paragraph was really good the last joke was also funny and well timed and that's pretty much enough for a 1800 word story.


Rainbow should have won

But then how could AJ call her a dang varmint? :raritywink:

Not a bad read, although I believe this story could benefit from the ‘Random’ tag. Furthermore, as others have remarked, the dialogues in the middle part of the story could be a bit more refined... Also, keeping Fluttershy in the dark for so long is just cruel! :fluttershysad:

What did you think needs refining, specifically?

Some punctuation stuff aside, the dialogue just feels forced and unnatural, and it comes over as bland rather than funny. Let your characters interact a bit more, insert in some snarky remarks and playful jabs, as 10076514 already suggested. I'm not saying every sentence has to be funny, but you need to maintain a certain level of amusement to keep the readers interested.

Hmmm. Alright, I'll make sure to keep that in mind for my next short story. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!

You're welcome, glad I could help! :twilightsmile:

Pinkie nodded vigorously, “Nope! Not since we heard from a traveling doctor pony that beating each other with rocks could cause brain damage.”

Twilight glanced down at Pinkie, and sighed.

“So… so stupid…”

Funniest part of the story.

Hilarious. They would totally do something like that. XD

Nice. Though isnt this a female dominant society? I guess it's never really been established but imagine how hilarious it would be if Applejack won and she hated the idea of wearing a dress?

Though now that I take the personality of these two into consideration wearing pants is probably more on their lines. Dresses are too girly. Too bad for you Rainbow Dash.

I can totally see something like this happening to these 2.

Awwh! <3
This was really cute. Totally believable. AppleDash is a good ship. FIGHT ME.
