A sequel to 'Forbidden Fruit' - Months have passed since Applejack's and Twilight Sparkle's adventure to retrieve a piece of life-giving fruit, and Granny Smith has successfully recovered from her illness. Though they became incredibly close during their journey and learned much from each other, they never became anything more. As they'll soon discover, however, there's still more they can learn from one another - much more.

Fic is rated Teen for alcohol use, language, and romantic situations.

Note: This story will contain references to 'Forbidden Fruit'. Reading 'Forbidden Fruit' beforehand is highly recommended due to the amount of characterization and relationship building, but not necessarily required.

Hurr cliche dream sequences. Shut up, it was fun to write. I also may or may not have been listening to the Muse song by the same name while writing this.

Double cliches all the way across the sky!
Yeah yeah yeah!
Double cliche!

I really got to quit listening to The Gregory Brothers, I don't evem like it...

Anyway, it's a useful start I presume.
I am not goinig to track this, atleast not yet. But if the next chapters turn out good, I guess I am onboard.

This hasn't even passed moderation yet - guessing you got in here by following my comment? :twilightoops:

Ah well. Guess it's an early treat of sorts for my readers.

Yup, was going via your profile to check the blog.
Then suddently, mysterious comment. I had to check it out.

Today seriously seems like ship fic day or something. Seen so many get posted today.

Debated on maybe holding it back until tomorrow, but decided against it. Here's my own contribution.

loltriplepost. Also wanted to say that this is my first ship fic, so it's still a bit of a learning process for me. Earlier chapters may be revised at any time.

Up to your usual tricks I see, Mr. Vargas. I'll have to go back and read Forbidden Fruit now. Excellent work of course.

What can I say - I love me some dream sequences.

Oh dear, this is going to be interesting... i think.

*is still laughing from the part when Twilight woke up*

Good start to this; looking forward to more!

Cute. XD
Cliche or not, those dream sequences are always good. Looking forward to the next part.

I first thought you were moving the story very fast. I was glad it was only a dream sequence xD.

Nice chapter and i hope the rest will be as good or even beter :)

I do have a question. Will one of your stories be a main stories (so more updates). Or will they be updated with the same rate?

Applelight? Twijack?
Hm. I don't think I can remember seeing this ship before.
I'll have to read "Forbidden fruit" at some point... xD

Gotta love them dream sequences! There is just so much you can do with them and then rip it all way; why must you toy with us! Please continue. :)

I'll be flipping between Stuck In The Middle With You and Unintended. After one gets updated, I'll then move to the other until it updates, and so on. One of the folks that frequents an IRC channel I'm in was somewhat worried about the pacing, but it'll be several chapters before anything really starts to happen. One of my biggest gripes with ship fics is that many don't spend enough time on characterization or build-up, so I'm doing my best to avoid that.

Because toying with you is awfully fun. :trollestia:


I understand what you mean. Most fanfics with relationships are very fast and only very few have the pacing correct.

element of honesty.... you do your element proud.... spike might make things difficult for you though :twilightsheepish:

i was waiting for this to be fair keep up the great writing!:twilightsmile:

Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them. ~John Updike

i love so much, great writing vargas i give 5 out 5 molestia faces :trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia::trollestia:

Next chapter is done, but you're not getting it until tomorrow.

Neener neener!

DEAR CELESTIA MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!!! (not that i was praying...jeez)
This is beautiful... Even your dream sequence has logic sound enough to warrant the begging of this shipping fic, but obviously your to cruel to give us the satisfaction just yet. (curse you mind and your incessant need to be pleased with romance fics about Twilight). The flow is smooth and sweet (i'm not saying jagged flow is bad) and the characterization is in line with Forbidden Fruit. Vargras you've done it again, ya bloody stole my soul. And i love you for it. :twilightblush:

WHY? Why must you make me wait!?!

Element of Honesty, gets most cryptic dream.

It isn't exactly hard for some of us to decipher, but I think it'd still be difficult for her.

The final line also refers to more than one thing, but attempting to elaborate on that made it feel too cluttered, so it was omitted.

Come now, I don't think my chapter will ever be able to beat a top hat with self-deploying sunglasses.

105792 'Tis not hard to catch the full meaning, especially if one pays attention to the previous paragraphs.

Sir. :twilightsmile:

I'm aware of it. I didn't want to make it particularly hard to decipher, but dreams can be funny things - what's easy for us to figure out will likely be difficult for her. Some pieces may be clear, and others not.

106320 Indeed - it's generally hardest to understand things from the inside. My initial comment was more about how the final line was clear enough that no further elaboration was needed. :moustache:

You mean we get to think that everyone wants to sleep with their mother? :trollestia:

that'll teach me to say stuff without knowing exactly what's going on :facehoof:

great chapter, i would say can't wait for more, but i know that you're working on another great fic, so I'll just say i can't wait for that one to update :twilightsmile:

You're not figuring this out that easily. :ajsmug:

@ Vargras
I'll hold you to that one!
I need more good stories that keep me guessing to fill the void between the updates of the 100+ stories I'm following

This one does nicely, same goes for stuck in the middle with you :twilightsmile:

oh jeez i feel another adventure coming on...in the mind (maybe?)
"You walk a perilous path, Child of Earth, and only with the aid of another will you find what you need." Which basically means "Bring Twilight with you, your going to need her."

Not another adventure, but you're on the right track.

There's another pairing that I'll be introducing with this fic, and I'm almost positive that it's never been mentioned anywhere else within the fandom. You guys won't get to see it until much later, though.

107438 I thought as much...
a pairing never seen on the fandom... as much as i doubt that, i look forward to it...

I see where this is going


You might be surprised.

New chapter tomorrow. No updates at all on Friday - I've seriously typed 6k+ words today, split between Stuck In The Middle With You, Unintended, and an as-of-yet unnamed work. Gonna take a break!

I know this is a triple post, but whatever. This is just... bizarre. I'm listening to the Bastion soundtrack, and one of the songs is just... perfect for Applejack and Twilight within this storyline, starting at Forbidden Fruit and continuing up through Unintended. Complete and total coincidence, but it's even more beautiful now. Go give it a listen and just think about it a bit.

Bastion - Mother, I'm Here

I set my sail
fly the wind it will take me
back to my home, sweet home

Lie on my back
clouds are making way for me
I'm coming home, sweet home

I see your star you left it burning for me
Mother, I'm here

Eyes open wide
feel your heart and it's glowing
I'm welcome home, sweet home

I take your hand
now you'll never be lonely
not when I'm home, sweet home

I see your star, you left it burning for me
Mother, I'm here

I love that Applejack and Twlight shipping!

5 out of 5 stars!

It'll still be several more chapters before any 'true' shipping even happens.


twilight and alcohol. that should be fun :P


Untill this point i have read 2 fanfics where twilight drinks alcohol.

In one her friends help her realize she should stop because she is drunk pretty much all the time.

And in the other she just drinks wine and nothing happens xD

I wonder what will happen when you write it :P

You'll have to wait and see. :twilightsmile:

Well, considering Twi herself said she never had alcohol before... I expect fun results. =3

I've read enough hentai to know where this is going. :raritywink::pinkiehappy:

Don't expect too much just yet. There won't be drunken kissing or anything of the sort. What I have in mind will be a little funny and a little sweet. Nothing romantic just yet.
