This is so adorable and heart warming. It's the perfect companion to that picture. :ajsmug:

Definitely one of my favorites from you! Great work!

this is suuuper cute and heartwarming. I'd love a quiet spot all to myself, too.

Good story! I remember a saying: "We need solitude, because when we`re alone, we`re free from obligations, we don`t need to put in a show, and we can hear our own thoughts" - from this composition.


I don't usually go for the pure sentimental stuff.:applejackunsure: But this one is all right.:pinkiesmile:

... I want a pone-snuggle barrel too.

Short, sweet, and warm. You've got my upvote

I want to get myself a barrel like that. I love the sound of rain falling when I go to bed.

This is so adorable omg, it’s not easy to write more sentimental stuff between two not so sentimental ponies but you nailed it.

The fic pic is admittedly what got me to click on this, and I was not disappointed.
Short and relaxing, felt like it'd be good to read while it's raining outside... yeah now I want a rain barrel too :applejackunsure:
Lovely little slice of life fic right here

Comfy fic, Kudos!

I got really strong The Thinkin' Spot vibes from this, and in the best possible way. Kudos!

God I love these small slice of life stories.

Rainbow Dash’s eyes widened, but she nodded firmly. “Cross my heart, hope to die,” she said, making the motion across her chest.

That's not how you Pinkie Promise

Tbh, if it wasn’t for the picture, the title gave an initial different impression...

Hope you liked aliens.


I was expecting a horror story based on the title not gonna lie.

why i’m thinking about certain mexican character when i see that picture on the cover

maybe it is a Pinkie (the cupcake one) Pie Promise

This makes me want to sleep in a barrel for some reason...

As a kid I used the toy box


The pegasi can fly though, so really they can cross their hearts because they can fly.

Also sticking a cupcake into your closed eye isn't painful as it is messy, also if you stick in your eye while wearing goggles then it's a much less effective saying as a punishment.


Pinkie's saying is.

"Cross my heart and hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye."

Pegasus doesn't need to hope to fly as they can already do that. So does this mean they can cross their hearts on purpose and at will?

A fantastic idea of a superb artist coming from an astounding author? It automatically spoke words of how great this fic is gonna be from just looking at the title! By God the story is just so sweet that I felt my adrenaline rush a bit from the ensued cuteness! Hope ya didn't mind, but I made a little reading on this awesome story of yours!

(I don't mean to offend anyone with this comment in any way!)

Oh wow. Thanks so much. I look forward to it. :pinkiehappy:

Cute and fluffy
I love it

That pic is the cutest F@#!$%*& thing imaginable, and the story itself is somehow cuter!

  1. This contains wholesome snuggles
  2. This contains AppleDash
  3. This contains wholesome AppleDash snuggles

Yeah, this is a win.

Adorable. Just adorable.

Sweet and adorable. If I wasn't about as flexible as old tree roots I'd want a barrel of my own.

A private barrel in the middle of the woods? I'd certainly go for it.

My first Appledash story read, and it’s a winner!

I heard you like barrels:

Aww, this was a nice little fluff piece. Nothing like falling asleep to the sounds of rain. :heart:

Not that odd, as a kid I used to like to sleep 💤💤 in the toy box.
