Rainbow Dash doesn't have anypony to spend her Hearth's Warming with—she hasn't for many years. All of her friends are enjoying it and she's had enough. She finds her way to Sweet Apple Acres and asks Applejack if she can spend the evening with her family.

AppleDash shipping. Again.

Well, glad this is over and done with. It probably isn't very good— I certainly don't feel like it is, but I had this idea and wanted to do it, so I did. Regardless, hope it was worth the read. :rainbowlaugh:

...I swear, I'm a slower writer than Varanus. :trollestia:


giving this a read now!

nice story

That was awesome! expertly written and wasn't too fast paced.

have a like and a favourite

That was sweet- ha, could you imagine the look on poor Scootaloo's face? :rainbowlaugh:

Well, I'm not really one for incest, but-


Very sweet. I wanna give Rainbow a hug. *hugs*. At some times though, it felt... strange to me. I don't know why. I might have found Rainbow's admittance to Applejack's feelings off. Maybe that. Yeah. I think so.

That's just me though. I did really like the story!

Carry on, you!

Lovely! I'll be favoriting this, and I know I'll be giving it another read around Christmas. :ajsmug:

I agree. Admittedly, I gave up on improving that part. I've had less than 5 hours of sleep every night for the past two weeks and I just couldn't get my brain to work well enough to make it better. I'll probably revisit it sometime soon and fix it up when I've had more sleep. And thanks! :twilightsmile:

If I knew what to do with it, then I might do just that, but this was already pretty much lacking any kind of plot (the definition of Slice of Life?). I honestly don't know what I'd do next to keep it interesting enough to read. Glad you liked it, though!

Cute. The story was all kinds of rushed, but I really like the concept.


Auugh. All my feels. That was so precious... needs more sex, though.

You know, I had reservations about pacing, given how short the story was. But you, sir, pulled it off excellently. for a fic that's just short of 2000 words, it's not all that rushed at all. Me gusta:pinkiehappy:

It wasn't too rushed, yay!, and (as the other people said) I love the concept, the simplicity, sweetness, and D'AWWW!
Rainbow wasn't the only one who ended this story with a smile (:

AppleDash. Again.
Beautiful story. Again.
Well written. Again.
Faved. Again.
Thumbs up. Again.

Now, while I may be more of a fan of RainbowPie and RariJack, there's no ship that's more adorable than AppleDash imo. One way you could expand the story so it doesn't feel as rushed in the middle would be to go into more detail about the day, i.e. them playing games, telling stories, at the dinner table ect. ect. It would add some nice length and allow more build up for RD's confession. On the other hoof this could just be my personal preferences talking here (I love lot's of build up and internal struggle before the characters admit their feelings). All the same, a simply adorable and well written story.

So very cute! Too short, and the admitting of feelings came too suddenly, but the setting in general was fantastic. :heart:

HOLY- *Dies of D'awww, and well written awesomeness* (Fav'd and thumbs upped before death) :rainbowlaugh::rainbowkiss::rainbowwild:

I loved it! The admitting was a bit sudden, but it was a really cute story. :twilightsmile:

Its super duper cute. No doubt about that. But with how the story is written, you could totally make it a story of friendship instead of romance, and the same warm fuzzy feelings would be there and it wouldnt feel rushed at the end. Thats all I can really say.

Well, other than it was uber cute and I loved it.

Thanks! Whatever I write next will have better pacing. Promise.

Chapter 2: "...and then they bucked. The End."
As I said above, no foreseeable sequel. I do have a clopfic that needs finishing before anything else. Delicious, AppleDarkle pony sex. Mmmm.

Huzzah! I have to agree with everyone else that it's a bit rushed, but thanks! :twilightsmile:

I was sorely tempted to do that, but my brain wasn't working well enough. I chose something a little more rushed that I could do, rather than something with fleshed out scenes that would probably have been a waste of time. I've read plenty of fics go this route and add somewhat meaningless story to establish the confession later on and I didn't want to go down that path myself. I tried to express that there wasn't really any struggle here for admitting feelings, but given my mental state when writing it, that probably never happened. Rainbow knows deep down that AJ would, at the very least, stay her best friend. And thank you! I love getting feedback!

The admitting of feelings is the main part I'm not happy with. I might go back and fix that up later so it's not so sudden. And thanks! :3

But... but.... shipping!
I do agree with you in that I could have done away with it, but I just love shipping these two too much. :pinkiecrazy:
And thanks to you, too!

Cute cute and cute!

I do agree with the others that the end felt a tad rushed but it was very cute overall.

Would have loved to have seen some of the banter happening during the dinner, many missed comedy oppertunities and d'awww moments.

Thumbs up, gonna keep an eye out for more from you.

Paired with the music I'm listening to, this was a very hear warming and 'aww' filled tale :D

A very cute story. I just wanted to hug Rainbow Dash, too. And her confession was really heartwarming :twilightsmile:

Is there a continuation? it rally deserves one!

I wanted this to be more "d'aww" than comedic and I felt the dinner would detract from that a bit. Not to mention, it'd be rehashing a fic that I know is in progress. I may be going back and fixing up the pacing and all that when I get more sleep. And thanks! :ajsmug:

There isn't and I have no plans for one. I have other things I want to write that take priority right now. If I think of something, though, I'll definitely write more. :twilightsmile:

ah ponyfeathers...oh well I look forward to read your other fics that your planning on writing.

That was a good, heartwarming quick read. It moved really quickly, but that's a minor complaint. Overall, I really enjoyed it. APPLEDASH IS BEST SHIP.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm currently editing it pretty heavily to fix the pacing and numerous other things I'm not happy with. It'll still be a quick read, but hopefully it'll feel more appropriately paced.

1390944 I'll definitely be sure to give it a read when you update it. Just send me a PM when ya do. I have no way of knowing! :ajsmug:

Mmm, pretty cute. Don't really have anything new to add that other folks haven't already said.

But yeah. Cute :twilightsmile:

Diabetically sweet and full of daaawwwww. Just what I needed!

Cute, tho I do hope you'll explain more of how they fell for each other

Your story was added to The Dreamers folder Dreams of Romance.
(Yours was the first I added, too. :ajsmug:)

Short chapter? Short chapter. I was originally going to have the rest of the story be in this chapter, but it needed a chapter break, even if it was as small as this. As such, a third (and final) chapter is on its way.

Once I finish off this story, it's back to Past Imperfect; that's badly in need of an update.

good short chapter? Good short chapter.:pinkiegasp:

I love it, you manage to capture cute AppleDash so well :rainbowkiss:

Well, even a short update is better than no update at all, and this scene definitely prepares us up for the future!
As long as you didn't spend your hnnnng on this chapter already :rainbowlaugh:
Can't wait!

I blame my slightly obsessive studying of episodes. I've watched every episode (the lastest two excepted) at least 8 times already. :pinkiecrazy:

I have not! I'm moving a large stockpile of "Hnnnng"s to the next chapter right now!

1599026 my face right now: :yay: multiplied by over nine thousand

Hmmm. *eyes this, and the forum posts*

Why do I have a sneaking suspicion I know what the next chapter is going to be about~ :pinkiecrazy:

"And that fateful day, Krazy added a sad tag to his fic, and all hope was destroyed in the world."

I'm not that evil. This is fluff from here on out. :twilightsmile:

Winona loves Dash too! You always keep the pony your dog likes. :ajsmug:

So cute. I love fluff.

Oh man, that was just too cute. I liked the brevity of it too actually. Left it as nothing but heart warming.

Absolutely and always. That's like getting a stamp of approval from your best friend right there.

Glad you enjoyed it! :twilightsmile:
