Roundabout Recluse

Two steps forward, one step back. I'll get there.


“I don’t see what’s so important about forcin’ Twi to go on dates,” Applejack cut in flatly. “She doesn’t need to date anypony. I never dated anypony, an’ I’m right content, so can you go back to readin’ that magazine already?”

Silence fell upon the table like death.

Rarity’s eye twitched.

“Oh, noooo,” Pinkie wailed, collapsing into her seat and sliding to the floor.

Twilight facehoofed.

“Applejack,” Rarity whispered, deceptively soft, an edge of danger to her tone that she’d carefully honed over the years, after many customer clashes and Blueblood-esque encounters. “You’ve never been on a date? Not even once?”

In which everypony's love life is a travesty.

Wait... if Blueblood is still sending letter to try and marry Twilight...


Could be, or maybe he's given up on Twilight in the span of a day (or however long it's been since sending the letter). Up to your interpretation!

Have I mentioned that I DESPISE unsolicited matchmakers? :flutterrage::twilightangry2:

For his sake, it better be that

:ajsmug: Alright I'll date Spike.
:raritystarry: Spike? Spike, Precious Scales. Spikey Wikey?
:ajbemused: ya got a problem with that?
:raritycry: He's my dragon!
:ajsleepy: Well what a shame
:flutterrage: Discord Turn him back this instant!
:rainbowlaugh: Serves you right Rares
:moustache: What I miss?
:facehoof: Don't ask
:pinkiehappy: I wont tell

It was all for Applejack’s own good, of course. Future-Applejack would thank her, and so would her future special somepony. And perhaps her future special somepony would be so terribly grateful, he or she would introduce her to an equally attractive friend, but that was only a possible by-product.

Yes true generosity: the kind where you get a kickback :rainbowlaugh:

“Oh, good.” Fluttershy smiled with relief, wings rustling at her sides. “Prince Blueblood will be so glad to hear it.”

And Discord waits with his baseball bat for that pony to make one mistake

"I ain’t gonna get on with somepony that way. Not now, and…"

Her voice dropped, but it was no less confident. "I dunno, maybe not ever."

Aromantic Applejack?
