Ten Speed

Self sure in ability or supremely stupid.


Big Macintosh is a stallion of few words, but that doesn't mean he's slow or uneducated. Unknown to any outside the Apple family, he's a wiz at math and finds himself smitten with the one pony who could share his love for numbers, and who just so happens to be the personal student of Princess Celestia; Twilight Sparkle. With a "gentle" nudge from his persistent sister, Big Mac manages a date with the purple unicorn, but a relationship might turn out to be more work than either one bargained for.

I swear I've read this story before, or at least the premise of it.. did you combine multiple past stories you posted or something? The description seems eerily similar. Will read again of course.

2000246 It's an expanded version of two previous stories.


Well, that settles that, thanks for the clarification. Favorited to read later.

2000246 I had originally written the first chapter in November and intended it to be a one shot. I got a lot of really positive feedback asking for a sequel and so I did that, again meant to be a one shot. Once that was published though, people were asking for more and so I decided to just turn it into a full blown fic and include everything in one story for the readers convenience where I'll continue to add to it. Hope that answers your question. :twilightsmile:

Once this actually gets past moderation I'll probably end up havening to take the other two down to stay within website guidelines.

edit: Speak of the devil, it just went through! Also thank you for the fave!

This. This is an amazing idea. Holy wow, amazing shipping prose.

2000604 Haha, well thank you very much sir. I'm glad you like it! And of course, thank you very much for the fav! :pinkiehappy:

I don't like TwiMac
But this has caught my attention regardless. Will read tomorrow.

Ist gute, sehr gute.... I like it. Very well written, plus the TwiMac nets you a couple a thousand points in my book. One error I caught....(I added in the word in purple)

“Could Ah bother ya to fetch me mah glasses? Ah left 'em on the counter in the kitchen.”

Just need to add in that word. No other errors I caught, so great job!:twilightsmile: Can't wait for more of this!

At first I was a tad skeptical on the fic idea, but you pretty much had me hooked after the first chapter. Nice job on the characters too. Twilight kissing Big Mac, shutting the door, and then practically running after him and asking him out... for some reason that sounds exactly like something she'd do. :eeyup:

Hay...Lee... Snicker....

TwiMac is a ship I don't see as often as I'd like. Writing is very solid, characters all feel just right. Yup, I'm getting aboard and seeing where this ship is headed. :twilightsmile::eeyup:

The new chapter is great. Glad you decided to bring this story back to life. Faved and upped, can't wait for more!

Is Twi freaking out because she "slept with" Big Mac? Because that seems like the sort of thing she'd take literally.:rainbowlaugh:

I see that Log from Blam-O reference.

I see it.

And I'll be watching this story.

Ah, this will be easier to track then multiple stories!!

An no Mac, you're not the big mistake. It was her reaction that morning.

Tee hee soooo cute:raritystarry:

Hey. congrats on being featured! :yay:

I enjoyed this immensely, thanks for sharing.:twilightsmile:

I've got a nagging feeling about Twilight...

I hope this is just Twi being adorkable. :twilightblush:

:eeyup: Oh Bic Mac, how do we deal with them mares.


Good story sofar, a lot of tiny spelling/word choice errors but nothing flowbreaking.

The only thing I can't get around is how quickly all this is going, as far as I know, they hardly know each other in this story.
A kiss on the cheek for returning something of value ? fair enough.
But this:

giving him a soft kiss on the cheek and nestling her head under his chin.

Seem too familiar to be happening already.

Now... why didn't I fave this story when I first saw it? Either way, I enjoy your portrayal of Big Mac in this - it's always the quiet ones, after all. I'll be looking forward to seeing more from this one!

This is great! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

keep it up!

Oh, more chapters:derpyderp1::derpyderp2:

The name was all it took to draw me in. If the chapter about imaginary numbers doesn't mention I at least once, the story will officially be bad.

Just kidding, I'll read it as soon as I can.

lol! Love that ending! Can't wait for moooooaaar!


I like the story! :twilightsmile:

I like the story but I'm still waiting in hope of said fancy mathematics actually cropping up. The possibilities for cheeky mathematical innuendos are (not very) massive. Example:

sqrt(e^i*(pi)) < 3u

Hay-lee's comet xD

Well that escalated quickly. Although, I suppose if Twilight read the books, she would find it appropriate.

In the words of Frodo Baggins,

I have reached the end of this chapter. I like this :D

I'm not completely sure what to think of tis story yet, though it does seem promising. Although I must say, it almost seems as if I've read nigh the exact same story in different words if you know what I mean.:eeyup:

Ah left on the counter in the kitchen.

left them on the counter. Or however you say "them" with that accent.

I'm not usually one for shipping, but this was nice.

“That's so exciting! It's even more exciting than the 'slinky'!”


Wait... the two equations... IT'S A TARP! ... I mean, IT'S A TRAP!

... Eeyup! Ah was right! Ah'm so happeh! :yay:

Very cute. Oh lawd Twilight you eejit. Definitely faved to read later.

What rolls down stairs
alone or in pairs,
and over your neighbor's dog?
What's great for a snack,
And fits on your back?
It's log, log, log!

I cant wait to read more of this story! Keep up the good work :moustache:,

The adorkableness!

That was fast; they already like each other - ten seconds flat.:rainbowdetermined2:

This is very entertaining so far, I'm loving the way you write Mac. :twilightsmile::eeyup:

2001149 Thank you for your consideration. :ajsmug:

2001210 Why thank you, and also thanks for catching that typo for me. Fixed. :twilightsmile:

2001908 Just so you know, you're one of the people that helped encourage me to continue this. :rainbowdetermined2:

2002411>>2001931>>2002539>>2002952>>2003039>>2003062>>2003312>>2003333>>2003393 Thanks, you guys!

2003521>>2001716 Haha, I actually didn't think about the Ren & Stimpy reference, I was had the original jingle for Slinky in mind there. :rainbowlaugh:

2004479>>2003160>>2002794 I see what you mean about it being too quickly paced and I will do my best to explain it in the chapters to come so it makes more sense and seems more natural, and it's in part, why Twi had her freak out the next morning. I gotta watch what I say for spoiler reasons but hopefully I can pull it off.

2003259 You may have. I originally wrote the first chapter as a one shot and followed it up with a sequel upon request a month later. Another month and I was still being asked for more, so I rolled it all into one story where I continue it in chapters. :twilightsmile:

2003124>>2002998 I have some ideas for Big Mac and Twi talking "nerdy" once they are more solidified into a relationship.

I wish I could thank you all personally but I've been absolutely swamped with feedback, so I'll say it here; Thank you everyone for your support, your favs, and your watches!

"a ragged old doll sat silently, the only witness to the magic they had found."

There's a whole story in that one single line. Exceedingly well played. :eeyup:

I appreciate what you're doing here, but you must know that relationships never move that fast. I have a friend who is writing a novel-length story on one guy and him trying to get a girl at work. It's super awkward everywhere. She knows here stuff. It's crazy awkward. Reminds me of me...

"There's suppose to be a comet"

Supposed maybe? nice story man, I'll definitely like this one.

This seems interesting!

“Well Ah'm glad ya like Pinkie.” "I'm glad you like it" maybe?
