Braeburn's visit to see his relatives in Ponyville doesn't go quite as he expected. After discovering that he doesn't have a Special Somepony, Applejack resolves to fix this problem - by having Braeburn try to date each of her friends, in hopes things will click between one of them and her cousin.

Unfortunately, the road to Tartarus is paved with good intentions, and the poor stallion finds himself being roped into one disaster after another. Bear attacks, wearing a fancy suit, and a near death experience are just a few of the challenges he soon finds himself facing. Will Braeburn succeed in finding a Special Somepony to call his own? Or will Applejack's attempts to help her cousin only make things worse for him? The answer may surprise everypony.

Awhile back, somebody politely requested that I write a nice PinkiexBraeburn fic. I accepted the challenge, and this was the result. :rainbowlaugh:

I hope you all enjoyed reading it, and found it at least somewhat amusing or entertaining. Thanks for reading! :twilightsmile:

Inb4 Regidar.

EDIT: This was funny. I liked it. I found it especially entertaining how all of the dates ended with some sort of misunderstanding. The worst kind! Writing was superb too, I didn't see any errors. Also demon Angel is funniest Angel. Have a like and fav, wouldn't be surprised if this hits the featured box for a minute or two.

Also, did anyone else think of 'Beating the Heat' after reading this, or is it just me? :rainbowhuh:

I love how commenting before Regidar is an achievement on the site, now.

Somehow, Pinkie and Braeburn just.... fit.



Wow... I've never heard of such a pairing! But, oddly enough, I think that it meshes quite well. Opposites attract, after all.

1658230 I only intend to do it once or twice. Just to follow through on a joke I made earlier.

To my Knowledge, Pinkie and Braeburn has been done several times.

This has shenanigans promised. I'll read later.

1658367 Invalid pic.

1658359 To quote a reknowned, intelligent individual: :rainbowkiss:


Less than three you all.

Words fail me. I am deeply amused.


This was cute! Pinkie and Braeburn? The more I think, the more it makes sense!

that was great i love pinkie/braeburn stories

Nopony has done it yet? *looks around* huh, guess I not. YAY, I GET TO DO IT!

“Well of course!” Braeburn replied with an oblivious smile. “Like Ah said, Ah like the gal. So, yeah, Ah intend to keep my promise. Ah’m a stallion of my word. Why? Is that a problem?”

Applejack quickly remembered how well that went

Applejack shook her head and smiled. “No, Braeburn. As long as ya don’t break yer promise, it won’t be a problem at all. An’ from the sound of things… Ah don’t think either of ya have anything to worry about.”

This Fic.
I like it

Haven't read yet But

Unfortunately, the road to Tartarus is paved with good intentions

Is this a reference to Bruce Dickinson's Road to Hell off of his Accidents at Birth album?

Very cute! Nice job!

(ETA: Hmm. . . Dash wants somepony she cane race with. You know who would be perfect for that? :ajsmug:)

1658283 I've seen it mentioned before, certainly gets my vote for unusual. :eeyup:

Aww, that was a nice little story. :rainbowkiss:
Applejak when he told her he likes Pinkie :applejackconfused:

Huzzah! Lots of good reviews! And... Kurt Cobain. Sweetness? :rainbowderp:

Anyhoo, glad y'all are enjoying the story! :pinkiehappy:

1658661 Not a reference I meant to make, no. I intended it to be a reference to the old saying "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

1658678 This reference, however, was purposeful. :moustache:

A pairing that is . . . ORIGINAL?
Author, I'll make you chocolate chip pancakes in the morning every Friday
if you're a chick . . .
but since you're probably a dude, I'll give either a blowjob or a cheeseburger instead

Edit: I'll just go with the cheeseburger . . .

1659061 1: I'm afraid it's entirely original, so much as it's rare. A few other fics have done BraeburnPie before, but it seems to be an uncommon ship.

2: I'm a dude.

3: Cheeseburger will suffice.


And I'm usually a PokeyPie shipper. But this? This is so damned cute I can't help but count it as my backup ship.

More proof that everyone is gay for braeburn. good show!

Suddenly, I like Pinkieburn.

Knew I'd love it! :yay:

I didn't consider that Twilight could talk one to death though... That is something to consider...

I wait for someone to blow my mind with the most random, still-make-sense (somewhat) ship. I dont know what it will be, but that's what gets me goin the mornings. The day that ship comes out... I can die in peace.

100 bits says he just goes "fuck mares" and goes gay

Cute, funny, and heartwarming?

Made me go "d'aww" for a good minute and a half near the end.

Yay for some shipping that isn't the usual ol' stuff.

1658661 Love that album, especially the title track. Time to put some Dickinson on shuffle.

This is actually the most rationally and well-thought out pairing I have ever seen. Bravo.

Somehow Braeburn x Pinkie just makes sense.......

And I love it!!!!

This story does a lot of telling when it could be showing, but it works. This could have easily dragged on for several chapters and been really boring, but it isn't. It's just pure unadulterated fun. Good job.

This. So. Much. This.
It is so beautiful it got in my feels. :raritycry:

That was adorable. Never seen this pairing before, but I like this fic. :pinkiehappy:

XD I thumbed it up and it was the 100th thumb.

1659788>>1659808>>1659852 Why is my comments section being spammed? Is this some badge of honor for being Featured or something? :derpytongue2:

But seriously, could you guys please stop with the completely unrelated comments, gifs, and pics? I'm asking nicely, since I know you probably don't mean any harm by it. But it's a bit impolite, and creates a bit of a hassle for me and other readers to have to wade through all the unrelated stuff to find the actual fic-related comments. And it kinda clutters up the page. So please, would you kindly stop? :twilightsmile:

I'm sure big macintosh would fit in with any mare he wanted:rainbowwild::raritywink:

No but seriously, Can't Braeburn just lie like everyone else does and say he has a mare friend from the beginning?:twilightoops:

D'aww this was cute :twilightsmile:

1659937 Alright. I didn't want to to go that way. I left a comment, and Rainbow_Dashtruction kinda, y'know, helped me turn it into what it is now. Feel free to trash the comments if you want. Except my original one. :moustache:

1659947>>1660033 Thank you both. I'll delete the newer ones to help reduce the clutter, but I'll leave the first few original ones. Glad we could work this out. :twilightsmile:
