How embarrassing.

This was a pretty fun little oneshot. I am curious how Rainbow Dash would have started coming to tea parties, though. It seems like she would be naturally inclined to hate them. You could try to explain what appeals to her about them a little bit more.

"I can't believe the weather is so nice today." said Rarity.

Should be a comma in the quotation marks instead of a period. You made that mistake several times.

Rarity did laugh a little at that. "It's true. Tea parties are girly."

Something about Rarity using the word "girly" doesn't sound right. Maybe you could try something like: "It's true. Tea parties are, as you call them, 'girly.'" I just don't see Rarity using that word on her own.

I love a good story based on good pony art. There's so many images that deserve their own stories! A picture is worth a thousand words at least...

And is it wrong that I find blushing Rainbow Dash adorable? :pinkiehappy:

1788692 Thank you for the advice and suggestions. I'll see if I can fix up the grammar mistakes.

So much win on this one! :rainbowkiss:

That was pretty cute. Well done.

I can totally imagine Rainbow secretly enjoying tea parties.

That was an enjoyable, amusing little tale. You've earned yourself five Spikes :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

1789147 It's too many Spikes! :pinkiegasp:

That was hilarious! :rainbowlaugh: Dash is so cute when she's embarrassed! :rainbowkiss:

Is Pinkies better? :pinkiehappy:

1789378 Perhaps...both? :moustache::pinkiecrazy:

1789423 My mind has been blown, sir. :applejackconfused:

No shipping tag? I haven't even read it yet and I love it!

good story. so what was the real reason rainbow dash was at the tea party.

does rainbow like tea party.lol

1790685 What better way to unwind after a stressful week than with a tea party? :rainbowhuh:

1790726 I think it's funny imagining her at a tea party. I can see it.

1791487 I thought it'd be funny too. That cover image is honestly one of my favorite images of Rainbow Dash.

I already like this.

Lol, what? :trollestia:

Rarity did laugh a little at that. "It's true. Tea parties are rather 'girly', I suppose."

Unless you're British in which case its a national duty. :trollestia:

lol rainbow :rainbowdetermined2: you make anything cool:rainbowkiss:

This needs to be expanded upon, it's so good.....

"A lady keeps her excitement evident only in her speech, and she is always calm and poised." :raritywink:
Like she did when she thought she was going to be working with photo finish?

1949545 More of a "Do as I say, and not as I do" sort of thing.

To bad Pinkie can never go to a tea party :pinkiegasp:
why? Because at a tea party it's good manners to keep the Pinkie out. :pinkiehappy:


Why are all the good oneshots fantastic novel material... WHY:raritydespair::raritydespair::raritydespair::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry:

Hehehe. Most excellent.

1789164 Tis what she said, good sir!

This is great! Rarity's so kind and perfect in this. Very nice job. :raritywink:

that was a great fic, I can imagine this as a scene from an episode

that was a great fic, I can imagine this as a scene from an episode

The thing I love about this little scene is that Rarity making that save for Rainbow Dash totally fits my personal canon for her characterization: That she is someone for whom appearances actually matter, thus she would never write off Rainbow's pride and dignity as something trivial, And that's why Rarity, despite her vanity and melodrama, is still totally awesome.

It's about time someone disliked this thing. :yay:

2568439 Uuuuuh......OK :pinkiehappy: Whatever you said.

Haha, may be short but it's a nice story' well done :twilightsmile:

See, that was awesome of Rarity to save her buddy there. Cute Lil' one-shot.

that was the best thing that I have ever read and I'm a totes egghead A+++++ would do business with again friendly fast flexible

My respect for Rarity just went through the roof because of this. :pinkiehappy: That picture is amazing.

Rainbow dash with that hat reminds me of Mrs. Nesbitt.


4224973 All I can picture now is Applejack in the place of Woody and Rainbow Dash in the place of Buzz.

4225027 That would make the most sense.:trollestia:

Rainbow Dash as Mrs. Nesbitt tho.

I love the idea behind this fic. Totally earns a like and favourite from me, and you can bet that I'll be drawing fan art in the future.

My favourite moment was when Rarity defended Rainbow Dash. People seem to never realize how self conscious both RD and Rarity are when it comes to appearances.
