Twilight and her friends sure had an awful time at the Grand Galloping Gala, but at least they are doing alright now that they are all there together and they have someone special to keep them company: Princess Celestia!

1313714 Fine, I exaggerated. It was a bit cheesy, making everyone get what they wanted in the end, but cheesy doesn't mean I didn't like it. My only problem with it is Applejack. I think she would feel like Celestia was being patronizing, buying all her stuff just to make her feel better.

1313735 But then the old pony wossname will kick-in and Applejack would be reluctant to contradict the diarch who presides over the nation of Equestria and all who dwell in it while the Sun shines down.

1313981 :facehoof: I was trying to explain to Mabbz why Applejack wouldn't consider Celestia being patronising; because, like all Equestrian ponies, she's been raised to think of the Princess in such a way that she wouldn't dare argue, at least not until She helps Applejack and the others cut loose in her presence.

1314111 Sorry I made the wrong comment. I'm having a hard time getting used to the commenting system on this site, it really sucks. -____-

1313735 Celestia's the princess therefore she's have loads of money. And I made this to give them a happy ending after the Gala. The Gala was a fiasco but this fic was just to give a realistic representation of how their night went afterwards.

Good read overall, though there was a fair share of Deus Ex Machina with Celestia (Philomena, the Wonderbolts tickets, etc). This felt more geared towards a younger demographic, so that's okay in the end. In truth, this was a fine read with a good flow and no overt grammatical issue. Fine job! :scootangel:

1314653 Well that was the overall plan really. Celestia DID come to them at the end of the real episode so I thought I'd make her do them all some favors. I can see her being that kind to them all you know and she only helped three of them with something (Fluttershy, Dash, and AJ) and of course Twilight too but we already knew that she'd be there to talk to her cuz she came to them in the end of the real ep. I've heard it's an overdone thing to make Celestia do that apparently but this was made over a year ago as the description says, but even then I see no problem with giving Celestia a little more love than she gets in the show. And I wanted to mainly fill in the empty space that some people felt that season finale left. The Gala went horrible but then they all got together and were happy but then it was done and I am sure a lot of people would want to know what could have happened afterward.


I see. In truth, it makes sense for her to that. It just felt that, within the confines of the story, it was pretty much Machina still without the context of the explanation to back it up. A bit more meat in that regard would clean up the issue. Regardless, still a nice read.
