Rarity is a complicated mare, more than I can realise even now. But even then, I wouldn't change anything. Even with her romantic silliness and lofty nature, I can't help but love her, and this is why.

Yeah, well you know, that's just like your opinion, mare.
I don't think this is the fic for you then :b

If you don't like romance stories, or romance stories between certain characters, then don't read them. When you go and leave a gratuitous, undeserved dislike on someone's hard work because just you don't like the subject or the genre, you're not "sharing an opinion", you're just shitting on someone's love and labor for no reason. It's as if people rang on your doorbell to tell you they don't like your face or the color of your house. If they don't like that, it's not your problem, is it? So if you don't like stories about the mane 6 having romances with each other, then consider just not walking up to the people that do and making it their problem. Yeah? Consider just finding something you like instead going out of your way to try and make someone else feel bad over what they do like.

i just joined today and everybody hating on me i just shared an opinion sheesh:facehoof: plus i'm new and...tired:ajsleepy:

Well that was a familiar question and conversation.

And one that makes rather a lot of sense for those two. Nicely done.

If "everyone's hating" you out of the blue without any experience with you, then maybe look back and see what you're doing that may cause people to "hate" you. I'm not hating you here. But you just went into someone's story that they just posted and you left a dislike for no reason. Imagine if I just went into your profile right now and just left a comment saying "I'm sorry but I don't think avatars should be made in MS Paint :rainbowwild:" would you like that? Would you feel like I did something for you? "Oh, it's just an opinion", right?

No, that would not be just an opinion, that would be me being rude and mean. You can have an opinion. But if your opinion isn't going to help anyone, then maybe keep it to yourself. Yeah? Maybe don't leave a public dislike on a new story and make it look publicly bad just because you don't like romance. Maybe don't be mean. And then maybe people won't be angry with you, call you out on it on your first day, and you won't have to whine about it when they do.

It's okay to have an opinion. But before sharing it, ask yourself this: is it going to help them be better? And then, ask yourself, is it something they could have already thought about? And only then consider sharing your opinion.

It's only familiar because it's natural for these two!
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it, it took me a bit of work to capture their essence here but I think I did a good job of it.

also i didn't say it in a mean way all though u can't rlly tell it's a comment box

I'm an absolute sucker for these two! They're too damn adorable

also how exactly do ppl make the stories i'm just asking anyone cause i am very much clueless:twilightoops:

You may wanna have a look here

thx sorry if i sounded mean

Same, they're my OTP and I absolutely need to write more of them.

adorable as usual. Good work!

this is a mashup a made a while ago hopefully it can do some good for authors with no inspation or ideas a mlp mashup

This was so sweet and adorable!

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it, I had a good time writing this, even if making it all fit in exactly 1000 words took a bit of work.

... ppl still don't like me? no one else gets this type of treatment

This was a nice sweet story, good job!

I love you because whenever I look into your eyes I gaze on my future—our future.

I could look into those sparkling sapphires for hours

This is some quality Rarijack fluff for the most part, but sometimes you lip into purple prose that I just can't imagine Applejack thinking. The photo in her hat, that was pitch-perfect AJ that I may end up using myself sometime, but some of it is just too sappy to be believable.

That said, this was still very sweet throughout. Thank you for it, and best of luck in the judging.

Rarity has me ask her a question every day, it’s a silly thing, really. At first, I just rolled my eyes when she proposed it, but let's be honest, how can I not humour her?

aww, that is such a cute little thing! and hehe, "let's be honest", because it's Applejack!

“Why do you love me?” Rarity repeated. “I know why I love you, Applejack, but honestly, I don’t know what could you see in a pony like me.”

“I could make you a list, but what’s this all about? We’ve been together for years, why are you asking me this now? It ain’t like you to be insecure.”

augh yeah, that kind of insecurity is all the more surprising and saddening on Rarity here :(

You see, for a farm pony such as myself, it’s hard to read between the lines sometimes. But being with Rarity had taught me things I thought I wouldn’t ever be able to understand otherwise. In the past, I would have said I love you because I love you and left things there, it would have been enough for me, but not for Rarity. Now I understood that Rarity wanted more, no, needed more.

aww, it's the little things like this that really get across the length and depth of their relationship here

I chortled, locking my eyes onto Rarity’s. “Because your eyes tell me that I’ll never be alone.” I reached for my stetson and took it off, flipped it over and showed Rarity the inside of the hat, showing her the one thing that I kept tucked into the band.

A photograph of Rarity.

“Because you’re right here, always with me.”

augh, that is just so sweet! of course this is what Applejack would keep under her beloved hat, augh, i love that! i am definitely stealing it

“I love you,” I said again after putting the stetson back on, “because I am a better mare because of you. Rarity, to me, you are more than family. In you, I found a soulmate.”

"more than family" really means a lot more, coming from Applejack of all ponies!

“Yeah,” I admitted with a hearty chuckle. “But that don’t mean none of it is true. It’s been tough, that's for sure, you ain’t an easy mare to please and I’m stubborn to Tartarus and back, but I’d be a fool to deny you are my heart.” I took in a deep breath and sighed, remember what I said about crying on the inside? “Rarity, you’re perfect to me, how could I live without you?”

Rarity smiled and made a playful roll of her eyes. “I’d like to see you try!” she chirped and giggled in a way that made my heart soar as she wiped her tears away with a tissue.

“I darn well couldn’t.”

and all this is just so RariJack and true it is perfect!

I could look into those sparkling sapphires for hours, and she said once to me that she could gaze upon my ‘effulgent emeralds’ until the end of time.

ehehe such an overwrought Rarity line, love it

Now, you may think me a fool, or a silly pony, but trust me when I say that I wouldn't change a single thing.

“I love you”.

love Applejack's voice throughout this! it is just so very her, and i could just about hear her voice in every line of narration.

the story illustrates how well their contrasting personalities complement each other, and how that can make their relationship work wonderfully. complementary not to mention just a lot of great fluff. great stuff!

Greetings. I hope you don't mind, but I did a reading of your story which can be found below. I hope you enjoy.

I'm honoured, thank you! ♥

I'm floored, I'm honestly floored.

Yeah, double the readings! 😁
