Scootaloo may have gained a big sister in the dark hours of the night, and not without thanks to a certain princess, but that doesn't mean she's having an easy time falling asleep. Rainbow Dash offers some assistance, in the form of a late-night storybook. Bridging scene that takes place after Dash and Scootaloo's nightly embrace, near the end of Sleepless in Ponyville.

first..this is gonna be good:pinkiesmile::pinkiehappy::raritystarry:

Jolly good, chap. I find myself reading too many sad stories, and this one did me just fine! Thank you! :twilightsmile:
Liked and faved!

Luna you PERV
You dont watch ponies sleep it's just creepy

I quite liked it, it gave me as many feels as the episode itself did and it answers the one question I never had the answer to; just how DID Rainbow Dash know Scoots needed her when she was out like a light? It's more than possible she needed the bathroom or something, but I like the idea Luna told her.

What's so funny to me is that the answer was kind of a no-brainer, and I'm mildly surprised more people didn't come to that conclusion sooner. Luna is capable of invading all ponies' dreams, and it's been shown that she was around during the entire second half of the episode during the nighttime, so her coming in to warn Dash of Scootaloo's trouble is the logical conclusion, at least to me. I'm very glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading <3

You are the undisputed champion of Scootalove! :rainbowkiss::scootangel:

That was cute, and certainly earned 5/5 from me. :twilightsmile:

I didn't spot any errors or mistakes, you sir have created a sound story. It was super cute!

Aww I really like these kinds of stories that make you feel good inside.:rainbowdetermined2::pinkiesad2:

I know what you mean reading sad stories and such, I go to bed very night depressed because of that habit

Kindred spirits, you and I.
But no matter how sad, still good.

I can't stand all this depressing fan fiction in this fandom :3 If I want to be sad over something I'll go experience much of real life. Ponies are cute, and I'm only interested in writing or reading cute things. That's my philosophy.

Thanks to you I'm overdosing on Scootaloo/Dash stories today. There are way too many sad stories out there - thanks for providing an antidote.:rainbowlaugh:

I was wondering how Rainbow Dash knew about Scootaloo almost falling into the waterfall. Thanks for throwing Luna in to warn her! :twilightsmile:

Hi there. I hope you don't mind, but I liked this fic so much i have put together an audio version on YouTube.

3482710 Wow, a huge thanks and appreciation :heart: Listening to it and reading your feedback helped make my night. Glad you (and from the looks, most of your subscribers) enjoyed it.

Awesome sister bonding moment! :scootangel::rainbowkiss:

3487033 yeah, we did.

honestly, this felt just right, something they should've put in the show.

Couple of mistakes on form, but heartwarming nonetheless. Nice little bit of fluff ^^

5366779 Regardless how many edits are made, there's always something else someone finds x) Glad you enjoyed it.

Amen to that, my friend. One of the people responsible for correcting the language on the news here said it thusly:

"The object is to avoid annoyance, because a viewer who is annoyed will not get the message."

This fic does not annoy ^^

Very wise, and I agree overall. Sadly I have OCD traits from my anxiety, so I'll always be somewhat of a perfectionist who will never be content xD

Oh, gosh, that can be stressful. I've had that from time to time, but not enough to call it OCD, so this might not be as helpful as it should be, but... consider the steps of animation. There's pre-production, production, post-production. Pre-production is the concept stage: outlines, character guides, that kind of stuff. Production is the making of the actual content: building characters, animating shots. Post-production is editing of all the things made in production.

In writing, pre-production is when you get the idea and outlines (if you use them). Production is the actual writing, post-production is editing. the thing about writing vs. movies is that movies are published after post is done with the final cut. An online writer can still edit after publishing. But the line is in making new content. Scenes are shot in production, but cut in post. If you change something in post, no biggie. If you go back to the production stage, you're making new scenes or changing the content significantly (like, say, making Greedo shoot first). A change in production would mean older readers and newer readers get a different experience from the same story.

I guess what I'm trying to say is: don't worry too much about wanting to get everything 'right'. No one ever gets everything right, especially on their own. But they try, and learning to look for mistakes is a good thing. But adding new scenes or sentences to the same story after it's published is pushing it.

With regards to anxiety, again I don't know if this helps, but I've found it makes a huge difference how late or early I go to bed. There's also herbal extracts that do wonders to calm your heart down without affecting your judgment or response time. I like Sedinal, the brand might be named differently where you are.

awww, what a nice story :) really happy to read it. :rainbowkiss:
Though may I also may ask the source of the picture, as the actual link is down?
