Closer-To-The-Sun


You gotta kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight.

This story is a sequel to Constant Headache


“Because the last time I let myself feel this way,/It was a long, long time ago./And now we get so scared, and we get so scared,/To be nowhere left alone.” -Metric, ‘Now Or Never Now’

With all of their seemingly endless back-and-forth, Smolder and Gallus are both convinced by their friends to write letters to the other. Of course, both the dragon and the griffon struggle to find the right words to write.

“We don’t have any sort of relationship! Also Silverstream, don’t you have to be stupid somewhere else?” Smolder angrily asked.

“Not until my algebra class tomorrow,” the hippogriff answered.

Is it at 4?

A sigh escaped from the dragon as she placed her head back on the coffee table, musing her conflicted feelings, “Half the time, I don’t know whether to kiss him or punch him.”

Typical dragon relationship, tbh

and Silverstream….” she paused for a moment before she turned her head to see the hippogriff sitting on the couch, obliviously smiling. “....is here,” she concluded.

“Hi!” Silverstream waved.

XD

“Silverstream, where did you get that quill and parchment?” Sandbar asked.

Do not question the pink ones, for they are creatures of incomprehensible means

“Yona has read romance novels with less intimate tension between creatures than friends Gallus and Smolder,” the yak stated.

Probably got started on them by Rarity

“Creatures can do that?!” Yona asked in surprise.

Don't give her ideas

“Yona has twenty bits on friends dating.”

Sucker's bet.

“We don’t have any sort of relationship! Also Silverstream, don’t you have to be stupid somewhere else?” Smolder angrily asked.

“Not until my algebra class tomorrow,” the hippogriff answered.

I see what you did there love the reference of SpongeBob SquarePants lol 😆

Sandbar paused for a moment to process Smolder’s words, “Wait, so you’re saying the only way you’ll ever admit your feelings to him is if he’s dying on his deathbed and it’s the last thing he’ll ever hear?”

“It couldn’t hurt!” Smolder shrugged as she began to think aloud, “Do you think we can make that happen?”

The hippogriff started suggesting ideas, “Well, we would have to make it look like an accident, but we could start by-”

Oh my God silverstream stop before you make things worse anyway that's a little bit of dark humor into this situation

“And I got some parchment and a quill right here!” Silverstream said as she pulled out the items out of seemingly nowhere.

Seriously I feel like silverstream is channeling the inner Pinkie Pie Logic here and I love it 😀 lol

Before Smolder could retaliate, Sandbar stepped in, “She is right though, the sparks the two of you give off could generate enough power to light up all of Ponyville.”

Heck, it's so bad, creatures are wondering just what Ocellus's exercise regimen is for being able to keep that trim figure of hers so well despite this. :rainbowlaugh:

“Guhh, why do I even like him?! I don’t even know! He’s a complete idiot! This is the same griffon I slug across his stupid face when he makes a dumb joke!”

“Yeah, he is stupid,” Sandbar boredly stated.

“Don’t you dare say that about him! Only I may call him out like that!”

I said this last fic, and I'm going to say it again this fic: JUST KISS HIM ALREADY, DANG IT! :trollestia:

Sandbar gave a quick glare to Silverstream, “You’re not being helpful, Silverstream.”

Silverstream shrugged, “Did you really expect me to be?”

Point taken. :trixieshiftright:

“And I got some parchment and a quill right here!” Silverstream said as she pulled out the items out of seemingly nowhere.

“Silverstream, where did you get that quill and parchment?” Sandbar asked.

“I don’t know!” Silverstream answered happily.

Seriously, Silverstream is almost upstaging everybody in this fic.

"Do you actually want to be with him?”

“Of course I do!”

“Then prove it,” Silverstream said.

See, that's how they need to approach this--by speaking it in terms a dragon understands. Smolder is caught hemming and hawing about it and is reluctant to commit? Then you dare her to do it regardless. Her dragon attitude isn't going to let her turn the challenge away, and the rest will sort itself out from there. :raritywink:

“Yona has read romance novels with less intimate tension between creatures than friends Gallus and Smolder,” the yak stated.

Yeah, not even the Death Star could cut its way through this level of romantic tension.

“Yona has twenty bits on friends dating.”

“You’re on.”

...aaaaaaaaand Ocellus is out twenty bits.

Heck, even if the bet was for something way more than mere dating...she'd still be out twenty bits. :ajsmug:

“I said shut up! He might be an idiot, but he’s my idiot!” Her cheeks were burning and admitting her feelings, but Smolder still was being defensive, “Just because I like him doesn’t mean I don’t want him dead by my own claws at times.”

Their laughter didn’t help the griffon. He let out a strained groan in annoyance and admittance, “Gahh, why do I like her?!” His words were pained at the thought of liking the dragon.

Well to be honest with you you guys have been kind of like that to each other ever since the dance
