The Red Parade

One for the rocks and one for the scary.


Cheerilee loves Meadowbrook. Meadowbrook loves Cheerilee. Neither of them knows how to say it, but the bigger problem is that the field of romantics has changed significantly over the course of a thousand years.

Entry for the May Pairings contest. Written with the help of the great and powerful Mushroom, the charming and unyielding themoontonite, the ever-present and encompassing UndomeTinwe, and the all-knowing and faithful Wishcometrue.

Cover art done by the talented and wonderful Skulljooce/Not Quite Equine. Give them some love!

This story is fantastic, Red. As always, your character writing is great, and the dynamic between Meadowbrook and Cheerilee is so sweet and tender (hilarious, too). So many funny moments here, and I feel like you did a great job of making that ending feel earned. Great work.

this was fucking sublime. as always, your characters and the writing they exist in is so rich and lush. its palpable, a real Thing that you can feel the shape of as you read. this was funny and soft and sharp and very whole. it made me feel very very gay

wonderful work

SCORE! Cheerilee and Mage Meadowbrook Fic!

Never thought one would see these two together. X3

This was very cute, I enjoyed these two dorks trying to get together. Great job!


I'm rather concerned about Daisy.


Wow, culture sure has changed a lot over the years.

Why hasn't language?

This was a really cute story, and I loved how you portrayed Cheerilee's side of the story. However, I think Meadowbrook didn't really fit what we saw of her in the show, and especially the comics. Sticking to the show, she has a sort of Southern belle feel to her voice, and her dialogue here doesn't seem like it'd come from her. She seems to have adapted to the modern day well enough, especially since she has present day family, so that makes her confusion with present day customs feel odd.

The timeskip at the start of chapter two felt odd too.

Still, this was a fun story overall.

Oh, that was a lovely romp! Crack pair, but what else is new?

What a comedy of errors this was. For some reason I don't think I'd read anything of yours until now, or if I have, I can't recall. Either way, I'll be dipping into your catalogue some more.
