Applejack didn't plan on kissing Rainbow Dash. It just happened, really.

Now Rainbow Dash wants answers...and Applejack isn't sure she has them.

I've really enjoyed this story. Definitely going into my favorites.

That was absolutely adorable.

Very cute little story! A shame so many people see the words "Pride & Positivity" in the description and instantly hit the dislike. Lots of good ones coming through the contest, and the red bar smacks so many of them down instantly.


Indeed. At least I was prepared for it to happen. Never fun, but survivable regardless.

This was cute! What's with all the downvotes?

Short, sweet, affectionate and heartfelt, as it should be. The prose writing is very good, and the characterisation is right on point. Also, even though I'm not one to judge pairings, AJ and Dash made a lot of sense in this story! You made them feel just right for each other. I particularly enjoyed Dash in this one.

Honestly I get tired of constantly hearing all the pride and positivity nonsense. Back when appledash was first starting out you really didn't have to keep hearing about "pride" or "positivity" and you know why? Because it wasn't some stupid political or polarizing issue. Everyone one just liked it or thought it was cute or adorable. Nowadays everything has to be about some "movement" or "talking point". When can we just get back to it being cute and adorable and leave all other crap in the trash can where it belongs.

BTW I honestly prefer TwiDash over AppleDash, but thats me personally. :twilightsmile:

Very cute and hearthwarming! :heart:

For some reason some people really don't like Appledash. The series finale made them salty, probably.

Sweeter than chcolate milk rain out of a cotton candy cloud :heart:

Aww this was so cute. I really like the dialogue and just the way they interact, its great. And I always appreciate fics that talk about sexuality a little bit more in detail! Bisexual Applejack is a very good concept. As a queer person I found the whole aspect of thinking when you got older you'd meet the right guy but then realizing that might not be what's gonna happen to be very relatable, definitely hits close to home. Applejack feeling strange over being attracted to more than one gender feels like such a real experience too! Really enjoyed this.


I’m glad you enjoyed it. I think this remains my favorite piece I’ve published here.

Thanks for writing one of the sweetest romance stores on this website! I enjoyed it so much I decided to translate it to Wattpad!

Wow, I wonder why people might be more insistent about pride? Could there be, I dunno, some kind of real-life political movement that people want to fight back against? Maybe one that spreads harmful rhetoric about queer people?
