3 views and 3 thumbs up :ajsmug:
i'm feeling this is going to be good

Liked for the picture. Time to read :rainbowwild:

Still 3 views, but 6 thumbs ups.:derpytongue2:
Because we can!

EXCELLENT!!!

A like for you my good sir!

:pinkiegasp: another Twiluna fix? You have my thumbs up and a favorite

happy halloween every one :twilightsmile:

Hmm, I'm interested.

Haven't read any TwiLuna recently, and that was at one time my favorite ship.

Tracking, and you'll get my thumb; this is pretty decently written.

Hmmm.
Well, this should be good. :derpytongue2:

Because 90% of the main characters are female.

TwiLuna is truly the best ship. And this right here is an enjoyable TwiLuna :pinkiehappy:

Just because you wrote this, I'll read it.:pinkiesmile:

Also a sequel/epilogue would be highly appreciated.:twilightsmile:

Okay, I hate to be the bad guy here, but I found this...unfulfilling.
Let be explain. For any romance story, you have to really develop the characters. You have to give reasons why they would fall in love, then actually show it. And unfortunately, I didn't see much of that. Oh, there was fluff, but not any that puts it up into the romantic department. All one would have to do is remove the kiss at the end, then the part where Luna asks to court Twilight, and you'd still have a piece that all fluff, but in a more friendship kind of way. It is those two parts that attempt to put in in the realm of romance, but those parts alone aren't enough.

Why yes, I am an English major. Is it that obvious?

A nice story> I enjoyed it.

Short but Sweet, nice job. :twilightsmile:

gaaaahhh....
Not cool, buddy. That there was a swift kick right in the feels... :fluttercry:

Loved it, thanks for that!:rainbowlaugh::twilightsmile:

That was good story, I loved it please write a sequel or another part. I love all Twiluna ships. :twilightsmile:

This was nice to read :twilightsmile:

God, this story is PERFECT.:twilightsmile: The pacing, the imagery, the emotional descriptors... this has wonderful flow and can't wait to see more from you in the future.

D'aaaaawwwwww.
:3

this story is way too complete!:pinkiecrazy:

great story, really nice!:pinkiehappy: as you've probably already guessed; i wish there as going to be more!dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/misc_Octavia_cake.png

nice story now let's see some lunamac

I got to say, this was one of the most enjoyable reads I have had in a long time. I love the ending too. With a tweek here and there, this would make a fine canon episode.
Thou hast presented a tale of great worth and expressed full literary knowledge, bretheren.:yay:

1540709

Because there's only like.....5 adult male ponies that aren't snobs or idiots and actually have lines in the show....

Let's see...141 thumbs up, versus 4 thumbs down? All is right with the world, and this fic. Continue.:twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

I really loved your characterisation of luna, it's spot on. (and I'm saying that that after I've spent the last 2 days figuring out Luna's characterisation based on only canon material (minus end of season 2 since that's not canon.) - so yeah, damn good job)


But as always there's more:
- The story is set 1 year in the future and luna hasn't adapted at all / it seems like neither have seen each other.
That feels kind of odd to me (infact even the original luna eclipsed episode was a bit on the odd side, but I guess that's 'cause they forgot about luna for a while). Works just fine for me though if I just change 1 year to 1 month or something in my head ^^.

We will need an answer then, or it will be much, much later before we get a chance to speak again.

Couldn't twilight go to Canterlot easily? Or Luna simply drop by? (And the whole "but she's ruling equestria"-bit doesn't count. Celestia did that just fine for a thousand years and probably wouldn't object to Luna spending time with someone who appreciates her and her nights.)

They arrived at the edge of Sweet Apple Acres and Twilight stopped and turned to face Luna. She shuffled her hooves together. “Did... did the stars look different from the moon?”
Rather than get upset, Luna closed her eyes and smiled. “No,” she said. “They look just like home.”

That line was just perfect.
Infact the whole scene was very well delivered and quite believeable, which in my opinion is something a whole shipfic stands and falls with. Also loved the detail of mentioning the wing again just in the second I was wondering if it's still wrapped around twilight.

Thanks for the great story, have a fave and a like. Really good twiluna and there needs to be more of them.

First time reading Twiluna, i liked it. i normally like Twinkie or Twilestia, but this interested me and i read through and liked this story :twilightsmile: very good.

Well its not bad. but it was a little boring.

DOnt get me wrong it was sweet and I did like it. but what about after? What about the after as the build the relationship and let others know?

Luna looked down at her with desire. “I wish to court thee, Twilight Sparkle.”

Reading this on Celestia Radio Live for Nightmare Night, Awesome fic!

Bravo once again, soundslikeponies. I like TwiLuna shipping.

*ahem*, I belive you mean nightmare night.

Welcome to the internet! You must be new here.

DAT GIF

Mmmm.. Honestly, I'd love to pelt you with compliments about this story, and maybe its because I've read way too many Twilunas... but this one seemed very bland. Nothing new was really introduced, besides the haunted house, and I feel like so much more could have been done to characterize them, and understand what brings them together in the end. Actually now that I think about it, all of these problems could be solved if it weren't a one shot. So I guess what I'm really saying, in an ungrateful and impatient way, is - More? dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Luna_apple.png

PS, this still has my like.

Like, favorite, and also the best possible thing to find after work on Halloween. Glee. :twilightsmile:

not bad bravo

1540661Lol gandalf the gray

1540709

You nubcake. :D Because if you like the concept of a female in a romantic light, then obviously with ANOTHER female sharing that romantic light with her, the fun will be doubled!

Also, because it just makes the most flippin' sense oddly enough. Big Mac x Anymare (Not including anycolt), or "Lol my neat super-awesome or super-interesting/super-serious/super-emo black-furred OC guy x Anymare" -usually- turns out to be utterly freaking boring or completely stupid. Rare to find straight shipping that doesn't fall into boring or stupid. Not to say there isn't a lot of it, just not many that are good enough to be worth a veteran reader's time.

He was no conjurer of cheap tricks!

I saw your Gandalf reference, you clever pony :ajsmug:. Though I wonder if Gandalf could summon bears. He did summon that one bird in the first movie.

Good story, just wish that Luna went through her adorable "i don't understand modern ponies" phase in the confession. Also wanted Luna to escalate the Haunted house with her magic to make it a little more "Properly Haunted" through Illusion. Anycase still good. :twilightsmile:

Gold star and thumbs up for you, and not just because I'm a sucker for TwiLuna. Let's Find and Flying High are two of my favorite shipfics, so I knew this wouldn't disappoint. I do wish you'd add to this, or write a sequel, because you have a real gift for (thankfully!) non-clop shipping.

1540957
Agreed. I do love me some feel-good fluff, but actual romance and "courting" require substance beneath the fluff to be believable. I hate resorting to memes when I'm trying to be serious, but *this* pretty much sums up my reaction. Things move way too quickly here. Twilight and Luna have a unique connection that (1) makes them a convincing and likable pair, and (2) offers lots of potential for significant character development/exploration. There are definitely hints of that (e.g., Twilight's awkwardness about Luna's time on the moon), but I want to see more!

Oh. My. God. That gif stares into the depths of my soul! The good depths mind you....

Sometimes, the like/dislike system feels a bit restrictive. This is a three-star worthy story, but I'm not sure I want to give it the same level of "like" that I'd give to a slower-paced, more natural-feeling romance. I guess I'll neither like nor dislike. (But I will check out your other stories!)

Which full moon are we talking about?
