Rarity and Twilight Sparkle are tasked with one of the inevitable trials of romance: figuring out their snuggle dynamics, and what it means to them.

For something like that, actions speak louder than words.

Nice little story :twilightsmile:

This is really good, Ice!

Are you going to make a story like this featuring the Cutie Mark Crusaders?

Now introducing Doctor Twilight Sparkle with her doctoral thesis on spooning.

If the author did that they would be responsible for warcrimes of Cutness...

10237147
Question is, do you wanna be Rarity or Twilight?
10237173
Thank you for taking the time to read it!

Well, it's good to know someone thinks so! Also, of all my stories to (finally!) favorite, you would pick the one that's Pure Raritwi sappy sapphic shenanigans.
10237216
Huh. I'm not sure why I'd pick the CMC in particular?
10237219
Enjoy diabeetus, you nerd.
10237629
Thank you! That was exactly what I was going for!

Peer-reviewed entirely by Rarity. Extensively.

That position is all well and good until somebody wakes up with a nose full of morning breath and a line of drying drool on her face.

Cursed imagery. (Though, it's true. Maybe I'll have to include something like that in a less ideal snuggle fic.)
10238182
Thank you! I'm glad folks are enjoying this one, despite all the downvotes that have been coming in. Not sure about what is so offensive(?) about snuggles.

I love fluff!!

Raritwi is also just good.

Truer words have yet to be spoken.

10238427
I have a fleet of fine ships and Raritwi be one of them.

Arr.

10238485
Thanks for reading, dude.

Just wanna be all the horses, huh?

I would absolutely love to read a romance fic that incorporates some of the gross, embarrassing, and awkward moments that happen in real relationships and completely ruin those wonderfully romantic moments that frequently occur in fiction.

10239042
I’ve written more realistic and awkward romance before! I don’t think I’ve ever done any that were ‘gross’ though.

10239260
Yes, you wrote the Munchies stories, which fit the bill nicely. One way that I can think to include grossness would be to give Francis Sparkle Shining Armor corndogs instead of sandwiches and the ensuing meat-like product breath. Don't actually do that.

This was lovely. A very nice look into the minds of Rarity and Twilight, and the parts about their families have my own imaginations aflame.

As for the author's note, I'm very much the same way. I think the RariTwi subcommunity is very open to different interpretations and flavours of RariTwi, but it can take some time to truly accept that, and not try to imitate one of the Great RariTwi Fics in the fandom. For myself, I went through a period of trying to copy my favourite fics, despairing that I never could, trying to create something completely different to differentiate myself from what was out there, then finally becoming comfortable with my own interpretations of them, even proud that I have a unique perspective that isn't necessarily like anyone else's. I hope you can similarly reach the same point, because it's certainly a ship that can be very rewarding to write about, if I may say so myself.

I don’t write ponies eating meat, so no worries. I do write lots of other romance though!

10240779 It’s about time ya read some of my stuff, elf-scum. (And I type that with endearment; no worries.)

I am always big on inspiration over imitation, but I know that when it comes to enduring trends a lot of folks don’t feel the same way. That’s part of what has lead to me having a list of ideas for these two and little outlines that have piled up over the years.

There is an idea for Rarity’s parents on that list too, but one that took place before her and Sweetie were born.

Thanks for the compliment and comment, my dude.

Very cute story! It was nice to see Rarity and Twilight's snuggling relationship develop over time. Shame Twilight never gets a hang of her sleeping wings, lol.

Thank you for reading!

What a beautiful story :twilightsmile: it is well written , it activates the imagination like it should, It's easy to understand and very poetic, worth the read

10248098
Thank you very much! I really like romance writing; it’s some of my favorite.

10250578
Thank you! It's good to know I haven't lost my ability to make the horses kiss, even when I don't always write romance-y stuff.

Was there a specific meaning in how much Twilight was referred to by her full name?
I only ask because I don't think you did it so much in the Iceverse stories.

10281625
No, I just usually call a character by their full name. Twilight doesn’t have a last/clan name, so I never have any reason not to call her by her whole, personal name. The only exception is when some characters are more formal/impersonal with her, they’ll use her full name.

To make the first foray into a romantic relationship anything short of spectacular would be the actions of an ant-Rarity.

10/10 Would recomend an ant-Rarity to anyone- they are quite the entertainment.

10358448
oh heck that is supposed to be anti-Rarity but I am sure ant-Rarity is very good also
