Rainbow Dash is having an excellent day - that is until a desperate thirst drags her from the sky and into a mess that may take more than simple magic to cure. Can real love bloom amidst the kerfuffle, or will shenanigans reign supreme in this tale of epic cliches and awkward matches?

This fic is hilarious! So many great lines, I can't even. Penultimate. . . lack of synonyms for purple. . .

I can't wait to see where it goes!

This is brilliant! Nice work. I expect more from you.:twilightsmile:

Superb work so far! You get a gold star. Only one correction I saw:

multiple barrel roles. = should be rolls

This got very complicated, very quickly. The fun, I expect, will increase exponentially.

(Thanks to bookplayer for suggesting this.)

Love it! Demand more story stat!

Nice start. Rainbow stealing and drinking a random potion was a bit contrived, but it was comically impulsive.

Ha, at least she didn't get weird with Scootaloo. My best guess is that the potions greatly amplifies what a pony feels for another pony. So her strong friendship with Twilight gets bumped up to love, her status as a role model for Scoots turns into a sisterly bond. I can't wait to see if and/or how that plays out with the other Mane 6.

Good characterization and tongue-in-cheek enough to make the silly premise work. Have a :moustache: and a fave to track.

I will read this later, my interest has been piqued, but I'm just started reading Displacement right now.


Thanks for all the support, I appreciate it and am glad you like it :pinkiehappy: And yeah, penultimate seems like a word she'd misinterpret, so I couldn't resist :derpytongue2:


Thanks a bunch! The next chapter should be out pretty soon.


Dang, I knew there'd be something to sneak by. Nice catch :twilightsmile:


Yeah, I figured the old love potion thing had been done by everyone and their dog, so I decided to add some extra randomness to spruce it up. Rainbow is best fly-by potion stealer :derpytongue2:


Ooh, good theory. Maybe you're right...or maybe not :derpytongue2: And thank you muchly, no one can resist the suave Spike stache :pinkiehappy:


:rainbowlaugh: You made that line seem much more awesome.


Amorous Rainbow Dash unleashed in Ponyville? Pfft, what's the worst that could happen?


Thanks for the comment :pinkiehappy: and the next chapter should be up shortly.


Awesome :yay:

Awesome, keep up at it! Artificial love makes for great plot.



Thumbs up. Hope there's more to come.

Oh, oh my. I had a dumb smile plastered on my face throughout the read - truly hilarious! Lavender love is best love, just so we're clear!

Definitely awaiting more of this maligned magical mayhem!

...what have you done!? :pinkiegasp:

Heh, interesting. Will keep an eye out for more.

I love how you dodged the ultimate cliche of Twilight going
"I love you too Rainbow Dash and I've had these feelings like forever."

No, she was acting for the first time in fanfiction like a heterosexual mare would in this situation. Honestly, this never happens and it surprisingly original...or maybe I've read an outrageous amount of Twidash...either way, that was great! :twilightsmile:

This is so hilarious! :rainbowlaugh: I love it, I'll be keeping an eye out for more chapters!

This is so hilarious~! Keep up the good work, I'm rooting for Twilight! :twilightsmile:

Heh, I just realized I posted almost the same comment twice~:rainbowkiss:


Haha, thanks, and yeah it does - nothing better than toying with pony emotions :derpytongue2:


Thanks, and yup, more is on the way :pinkiehappy:


Glad you liked it! And yes, the maligned magical mayhem (nice alliteration, by the way) will continue :rainbowderp:


...I don't know. The world will never be the same, will it?


Thanks - next chapter will be up in the near future :twilightsmile:


Yeah, I kinda wanted to skip over the whole cliched love plot thing (This thing already has its share of those) I mean, if your friend just randomly came up to you suddenly all gaga for no reason, it makes sense that you'd be a bit surprised and awkward about it. I think I'm in the same boat, except I've just read too much shipping in general to know what's original anymore :derpytongue2: Anywho, glad you liked it!


I'm happy to see that other people are finding this funny - its hard to tell if something is actually humorous when you're writing it (especially if you laugh at pretty much anything, which I do :twilightsheepish: ) And no worries - more comments are always fun to read :pinkiehappy:

Need damage control? Get Pinkie Pie!

Return to find damage tripled and PInkie conspicuously missing.

I give you 19 mustaches :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

Twilight made the right choice going to Pinkie Pie for help with Rainbow Dash. Because we all know that nopony has more skill restraining Dashie and keeping her out of sight.:pinkiecrazy:

Nice story, glad I gave it a look :pinkiehappy: (you have bookplayer to thank for that)

now, where's Applejack with her hidden feelings for Rainbow that will result in a full-blown relationship :pinkiehappy:


:rainbowlaugh: Pretty much. Or will her kookiness prove to be helpful after all? Hard to say... :trollestia:


*Passes out due to suave overload* I shall treasure this random and excessive amount of fabulous mustachery!


Ah! The flashbacks! Last time I ever browse youtube and naively click on a seemingly innocent video starring pastries and ponies :twilightoops:


Thanks! And yeah, I owe bookplayer for all of her advice, pre-reading and pimping out of my story :pinkiehappy: And Applejack? Hidden feelings? *shifty eyes* I have no idea what you're talking about!

Speaking of fabulous mustachery... Steven Magnet. Rainbow Dash would most likely recall her adoration for that mustache under the potion's effect.:rainbowkiss:

I like, I need some more, please oblige :twilightsmile:

Tada! Chapter 2: The corniness continues! I've gotta give a big thank you to bookplayer for all of her awesome advice, pre-reading abilities and advertising, so - Thanks a bunch! And to all you people who read, commented, critiqued, liked, faved, yata yata - you're all super special awesome. I hereby present you with a Bad-ass Rainbow Dash and Suave Spike for your support - :rainbowdetermined2::moustache:

So yeah, hoping you guys like it - if not, constructive criticism is always welcomed. In any case, I'm having a ton of fun writing it :pinkiehappy:


Wait a second....

*Gets email for update now*
*You posted a comment 13 hours ago*
It's tardy! :twilightangry2:

Another brilliant chapter. I can't wait for more!

(And amazing job with Zecora. I'm scared to even try her.)

It's AJ. I know it. :ajsmug:

Unless this comment makes the careful foreshadowing get tossed aside like a used tissue.:pinkiehappy:


Well done! Really enjoyable so far, and I can't shake the image of Dash as a loyal puppy. One minor correction:

a pear repelling potion for a doctor or renown = should probably be "doctor of renown"

Also, nice shoutout to your fellow Dash-ship stories with the kitchen sink reference.

As they say in many an online community... MOAR!

I'm loving this story. It's so silly, but really well written and easy to read. And I loved the Sokka quote in there. Can't wait for the next chapter.

Ohohoho! I do see the beginnings of Appledash here. I heartily approve good sir!

(and I'm wondering if that raw zap apple line is a reference to something else...)

Well, the potential for mischief is awesome indeed. I'll keep reading just for the laughs :P

One thing I have to wonder about though, is why everybody tends to picture Dash as being gay. There are precious few stories where she's straight and it seems this one won't be one of them. More's the pity... I thought Mac would be in the picture but it looks like that's not the case.

Oh and for the record? Great Pinkie Pie. Writing her and making her come across as Pinkie AND not have her be annoying is difficult.

1509927 Maybe, just maybe
*puts on black sunglasses*
the fun will be doubled.

This just gets better and better, I have a hunch as to who it is but a hunch means nothing mostly. I can live in hope. :twilightsmile:

Eheh, I may have got everything ready to post last night and then went to sleep... maybe :twilightsheepish:

Thanks :pinkiehappy: And yeah I was worried a bit about Zecora - but, I mean, she's pretty much necessary in any wacky love potion plot, so forced poetry ahoy!


AJ secretly crushing on Dash? Hmmm, I don't know whatever gave you that idea :derpytongue2:


Here, have this! :derpyderp2:


Hey, thanks! And :facehoof: those sneaky or/of things are always ninja-ing their way in - nice catch! And yeah, during my forays into the shipping section of this fandom I've discovered some rather interesting couples. Watermelon's and sinks need love too :heart:


Yay, I was hoping someone would catch Pinkie's Sokka line! :pinkiehappy: Glad you're enjoying it so far - moar shall be given in the not too distant future


Appledash? I've never even heard of such a thing! And I have no idea what other raw zap apple story you could be referring to. Certainly not one even vaguely related to the shenanigans that occurs after eating them. :ajsmug: :rainbowderp:


Glad you're liking it so far :twilightsmile: As to the gay Dash thing - I think it's mostly because the six characters that get the most development are all girls. Their character's are all so different and dynamic, it's hard not to ship them together just to see what'll happen. I actually never even considered the idea of sexual orientation when watching the show (well, except for Rarity and Spike, obviously) and found the stereotyping with Dash odd and a little disconcerting when I first entered the whole fanfiction scene. I mean, liking sports and having an aggressive personality or a certain haircut doesn't indicate sexual preference, in my opinion. I happily ship Dash with pretty much everyone (Mac and Soarin included) because she's my favorite - though I do have preferred ships.
Anywho, ramble about fictional pony orientation over. :derpytongue2: I'm glad Pinkie Pie came across well - she's really fun to write for because you can just chuck logic out the window sometimes :pinkiehappy:


Glad you're enjoying it! I dunno if your hunch'll be right, but hopefully it's fun getting to the conclusion anyway :pinkiehappy:

I'm glad Pinkie Pie came across well - she's really fun to write for because you can just chuck logic out the window sometimes :pinkiehappy:

Actually, there IS logic to what she says... it's just Pinkie Logic. :twilightsheepish:

1550719 Ah, that makes sense. Well, Brilliant chapter, although the romantic clarity is as murky as the Mississippi river. She likes Twi and Big Mac, and Applejack possibly likes Dash. But Rainbow Dash doesn't like her from the looks of it, and in the end, My entire post is disorganized and discordant. But that's irrelevant. It seems that the potion Is similar to a truth potion, but with emotions, bringing the buried feelings up from her inner being. But that's simply a guess.

Crap, I forgot to introduce myself. Brony Scientist SLV, at your service. It's a pleasure to meet you.


Ha, too true. Pinkie logic is best logic :pinkiehappy:


Glad you're liking it :twilightsmile: And no worries, a lot of my comments end up being a random mish-mash of whatever goes through my head, so yours is pretty intelligible :derpytongue2:
Ah, but what is truth? Is Dash really being honest with herself and her feelings? You have a pretty interesting guess - maybe next chapter will explain more... :trollestia: And nice to meet you too (or whatever counts as 'meeting' on the internet) :pinkiehappy:

1550858 Thank you. I shall see what you have planned later then, and determine whether or not it is what I guessed. :twilightsmile:

It was a pleasure meeting you!:twilightsheepish:

Oh snap! At the end of the story you have to reveal who you think is "Rainbows true love" and when you do and people dont agree and go "What the hay? What is this?! I'm telling you AJ is her true love not this pony!" :twilightangry2:

NO! You write the story, you build that hate bunker, you take cover in there put on those shades and go:


Many sniggers at Rainbow Dash.

I like where this story is heading. Keep it up :pinkiehappy:

One mistake spotted:
"Lyra? I seen her outside the forest. She looked... well I guess you could call it upset. But how would her potion end up in Rianbow Dash's stomach?"

1509906 lol just watched that episode before reading this :rainbowlaugh:

Yessssss. Appease the AppleDash overlords. :rainbowkiss:
