Scootaloo has never really cared much for Pinkie Pie, and she definitely doesn’t like the way Pinkie calls her hero “Dashie.” But for some strange reason, Pinkie seems fixated on her and insistent on meddling in Scootaloo’s life. Whether Scootaloo likes it or not.

First time I've seen Dashie being viewed as a bad name by a character.

#2 · 272w, 20h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I don't usually read fiction about anything to do with scootaloo, but this ill track. Great 4 stars!

Pinkie Says dashie in the cartoon

Its Cannon

Gtfo Scootaloo, N1 likes you.... Okay well i like her a bit but still.. GTFO

You've poked my interest... My interest doesn't like being poked, but I love it! :pinkiehappy:

You got yourself a tracker :pinkiesmile:


#6 · 272w, 18h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

This could be interesting, you definitely got my interest. I'll be tracking.

#7 · 272w, 17h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

definitely wanna know more. Tracking

#8 · 272w, 17h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Hmmm...this could be interesting...maybe its just Scoots being paranoid. *Tracks*

#9 · 272w, 17h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Interesting, I don't recall any other fanfiction exploring the relationship between Scootaloo and Pinkie Pie.

I hope they will become good friends after some trouble (would be boring without trouble), also the idea that someone really doesn't like Pinkie Pie could be really interesting, I wonder if Pinkie ever encountered somepony that didn't like her.

So, please continue !:twilightsmile:

#10 · 272w, 16h ago · · 1 · Chapter 1 ·

irritating when scootaloo thinks "dashie" is a disrespectful name :ajbemused: im just like who cares but im going to track it the other part of the story sounds interesting  :twilightsmile:

#11 · 272w, 16h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

scoots is obviously an orphan or at the very least a runaway from the looks of things... and from the way I am reading those two flashback sections so is pinkie in this story....I look forward to seeing how this is going to work out....

#12 · 272w, 15h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Hm... I think this will be quite interesting. Tracking.

#13 · 272w, 13h ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

First I was like :rainbowhuh:

Then I was like :pinkiehappy:

It was good. Tracking! :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy:

This poked your interest? Because it stabbed my interest with a spatula. Tracked, 5 stared and what-not.

#15 · 272w, 54m ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>113428 You try to have your interest poked with a pointy needle, and lets see how you like it :rainbowlaugh:

Still, this is a very good start to something I think I'm going to enjoy immensely :pinkiehappy:


#16 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Thanks, y'all! Really appreciate that everyone's giving this story a shot, considering it's dual-centric featuring Pinkie and Scoots. I know that's unorthodox.

As always, I shall endeavor not to suck. :)

Also, re: "Dashie" ... I just always figured that Scootaloo might bristle at the nickname as the "-y" and "-ie" are diminutives associated with childhood and such. (Which is why little "Tommy" will often start going by "Thomas" upon reaching adolescence or adulthood.) Since Scootaloo's at the prime age for bucking against nicknames associated with childhood, plus she's overprotective of Dash's "coolness," I always had it in my head that surely she hates that Pinkie calls her hero "Dashie." *shrug*

#17 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

AH-HA. I KNEW IT!! Poor Pinkie DX Brilliant chapter, btw ^_^

#18 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Ah, the the filly in the flashback-type things is Pinkie Pie. Nice twist :pinkiehappy:

#19 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

wow i was like :pinkiegasp: when i realized it was pinkie in the flashback! you are good!

#20 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I'm confused. Was the first flashback Pinkie or Scootaloo?

#21 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This is getting pretty good. Can't wait to see how this plays out.

#23 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

:) it was so nice of pinky. she kknows scoots little secret and i want to know how. this was wortth looking into!:heart:

#24 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Looks at story: Not Interested.

Looks at Author: He looks familiar

See's that you wrote "Not Unless You Mean It"


One sec, gonna read the story. - . YES. YES. YES! :pinkiecrazy:

#25 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I'm really impressed with this story! The old trope of Scootaloo being a homeless orphan is played very well here, and the way you've characterised her relationship with Pinkie Pie is very interesting. Keen to read more!

#26 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·


They're all Pinkie's.

#27 · 271w, 6d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Went through the entire thing thinking Scootaloo was the mysterious filly, what a twist!:rainbowkiss:

#28 · 271w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I guess Pinkie's senses were tingling. How else did she new that Scootaloo was a hungry orphan? And offered her sweets on the house? Just a haunch. Great chapter and great story! Can't wait to find out what happens next.:pinkiesmile:

#29 · 271w, 5d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Good twist !

And the scene with Pinkie hugging Scoot and whispering in her ear was really really really cute :heart:

Can't wait for more.

#30 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Liking the story so far. Keep it going :twilightsmile:

#31 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

yeah, keep on writing this. i like the idea of a pinkie runaway...seems to make sense in my mind at least

#32 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Wow... for once, Pinkie is the one that is being super sweet and kind to Scoot. Very original to say the least  :pinkiehappy::scootangel:

#33 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Ok, that clears up my question from the previous chapter. It's nice to see a nice back-story for my little Pinkie Pie. :pinkiesmile: And I also love :scootangel: stories, especially when she's an orphan. While some people don't like that I find that it makes a very interesting plot-base. Keep it up!

#34 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Fantastic so far! I can't wait for more! :pinkiehappy:

#35 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

This story is getting better and better. Also, just because you used it twice, every time you say "she ran" I can't help but think of the opening of the hunchback of Notre Dame.

#36 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·


#37 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

I don't know how to express how this story makes me feel. :fluttercry: I was starting to get the impression that Pinkie had been homeless herself, which is why she could tell what Scootaloo was going through and was so willing to help her, but I never expected that revelation. With all the kindness she's received from Applejack and the Cakes, not to mention her other friends, it's no wonder that she wants to pass that happiness on to Scootaloo. This story is amazing and it makes me cry, and I eagerly await the next instalment.

#38 · 271w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Will pinkie meet dash in this fic???????

#39 · 271w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Hmm. This grabbed my attention at the first chapter, and I only find myself more engrossed as the chapters are added. I'm really looking forward to the next update now.

Of course I am waiting for Scootaloo's reveal, but I am also very curious as to how you will handle Pinkie and the Cakes, and Pinkie and AJ. I mean, does adult AJ know it was Pinkie she brought apples too when she was a filly? Probably yes, but... We'll see how you handle things. Either way, like I said, eager for the next chapter.

#40 · 271w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

D'aaaw, runaway Pinkie is SO CUTE. :D :pinkiesmile: :twilightsmile:

#41 · 271w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·


Pinkie back story is best back story! Hope I do right by her.


I maaaaaay have had that line from Hunchback of Notre Dame in mind when I wrote those sentences. Also, I urge everyone to read the entire story in the voice of Clopin. Adds to the ambiance and what-not.

Also, part two, I had to listen to "The Bells of Notre Dame" on repeat for an hour straight last night after reading your comment. 'Cause it's such an amazing song. "Now, here is a riddle, to guess if you can ... sing the bells of Notre Dame ... who is the monster and who is the man?"


Aw, that's sweet of you to say! I'm sorry it made you cry, but also NOT sorry it made you cry, 'cause it's kind of meant to be a heart-jerker of a story.


I was so very temped to insert filly Dash into the story 'cause, y'know, RAINBOW PIE. But I don't think she's gonna fit, sorry. But adult Dash will be making a triumphant reentry.


Thanks! Glad to hear you're diggin' it! And your question will be answered definitively in the next chapter, fear not.

#42 · 271w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Really great work so far.

I am loving the characterization you're giving the various players in each scene, and the pacing is excellent.

#44 · 271w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

loving it, simply loving it so far.  I know the memory of being actually HUNGRY stays with you, and nopony should go through that...  

#45 · 271w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

Well done sir, well done. You are my fave writer on this site by far. :pinkiehappy:
