Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.


Left only with a promise to keep in touch, Rainbow Dash struggles to convey her feelings, and to figure out what the words were that she couldn't say on that last snowy night at the train station before Twilight left. As everyone slowly drifts apart, Dash will have to put in the effort if she wants to keep her friends together.

This was fun. I'm thinking of writing a few more one shots now, since it's just so much easier to revise them.
Also, this makes for the second holiday shipping story I've done, so in the future I'll probably do some holiday comedies instead.

Why are your stories so amazing?

I will read this later. You are really good at writing, and this story shouldn't be any different.

1832556 Because, secretly, he is secretly Pen Strokes in a super secret disguise. But, don't tell anyone... IT'S A SECRET!!!
Also, TwiDash is best ship. That is all.

Commence Read.

I'm reminded of a similar story. Though I believe it was Applejack and Twilight, and over a longer period of time.

1832579 and if I tell anyone...then I will be banned from his stories. FOR EVER!:pinkiegasp:

Awesome story! :twilightsmile:

And...now I'm in a happy place. :twilightsmile: Great one shot, I knew it was going to be good the moment you gave the teaser about it being written. I can't wait to see more of your one-shots like this but I also am curious as to one thing: Is this going to possibly have a sequel? Maybe another chapter? Something about the ending gives that sense of peace and all, but also a sense that it's not the end of the story. I dunno, could just be me :applejackunsure:

I cried happy tears after reading this

ohhh sweet sweet Celestia, this is awesome:moustache:

1832369 Aaah, you've plucked my single, individual, isolated heartstring!

There was something I desperately wanted to tell you, but I didn’t know what it was. Well, I do now.

The exact point at which Serious Feels overspread the scene.

Great job! I cried tears of joy:pinkiesad2: /)

This is BEYOND great! But I saw a formatting error in Spikes dialogue with Dash

Very beautifully done. The slow build up to those last few words was very well done, I enjoyed the many letters that you showed in order to showcase the building up to the ending there. It's beautifully done.

Things that this fic is: adorable.

The feels

A very nice fanfiction. I liked the letter correspondence, and felt the long periods of time helped build up the characters. Although more information on the other of the main six Would have been nice, It probably would've made the story verbose, and I think you cut it off well. All in all, very nice, thumbs up to you.

Perfect. Loved it.


But it upsets me to hear that your girls are drifting apart

Should this be "you", not "your"?

the days inbetween letters

Missing space here.

looked ahead, spotting the train station coming up ahead

A bit redundant here, eh?


I d'awwed.

This story is beautiful. I wish my love life could be half as meaningful as Rainbow's and Twilight's is as depicted in this story :ajbemused:
You earn a thumbs up and favorite .

You broke me... I've cried tears of pain and sorrow, and tears of laughter... but never have I cried from something being so adorable and heartwarming, so I wish to thank you and congratulate you on being the first to make me shed those tears.

By Celestia's beard, I nearly held up right until the end. I was valiant, I was determined, but the last couple of lines released the flood gates, and I was vanquished. Well done, author. Wonderful, and just a truly sweet story.

not half bad in fact fairly damn good

Man, so I see this story the first time, and I pass on it because I thought the summary sounded a little too bittersweet. Now that I've read it though, I'm kicking myself for not having done so from the beginning. This is brilliant, loved it from beginning to end. Thanks for the great story!

Oh my god, I love this so much. A perfect Twidash oneshot. :heart::heart::heart:

If this story was something tangible I would hug the ever-loving shit out of it.

They are my feels, especially the last one, you treat them well now.

Loved it you captured them perfectly. It was such a sweet short filled with all the goodies you'd expect from a multi-chapter fic. Thank you so much. I'd love to read more like stories, one-shots or otherwise, like this one. :pinkiesmile:

This is what you'd get if Hemingway wrote MLP fan fiction, and I mean that as a high compliment.

In a world of grimdark story's it's always nice to read a happy story

A fine story indeed, especially with the epistolary narrative. Some parts could have been fleshed out more, but other than that, it's a good story here.

I've got a great big, stupid smile plastered across my face. Great work, as usual.

Reminds me of Thanquol's "Yours truly". How Dash and Twilight open up to each other more and more through letters.

Enjoyable! i.imgur.com/uVj8R.png


You're referring to 'Yours Truly'. Though the main ship there was Twijack, Flutterdash was evident in it, and the letters (for the most part) were sent around by each of the Mane Six, if memory serves me correctly. I just reread the story myself quite recently, actually.

Soundslikeponies, you've done an amazing job with this one. It's earned my upvote and my fave.

I'm reading this story at 9 AM while a borderline winter storm rages outside. This is exactly the kind of uplifting I need right now. Well done, friend. Mission accomplished. Can't wait to see what you put out next.

Loved the story, loved how Rainbow realized throughout the letters exactly what she wanted the most. All in all very well done.

Daaawww! that was so cute and adorkable :twilightsheepish: well done love for more but it ended pretty well there well done. :twilightsmile:

That was wonderful, thank you. Ciao:raritywink:

You're the best romance fiction writer. EVER!:twilightsmile:

How many people actually read this and how many people just Upvoted it because of Twidash?

why is dash biting Twi's face

Very good work.
