I don't want to give out information here... Because obviously you're all going to use it against me. It's alright, I live in a cardboard box and I move it around a lot, so you'll never be able to.

*This is a side story to The Winds of Change, and starts after the first chapter of the sequel.*
With the sudden re-drafting of Jason and Dash into the military, Scootaloo is left feeling more alone than she can remember. Sure, she still has her friends, but friends can't just replace parents. And now with knowledge of her parent's leave all over the town, Diamond Tiara's bound to pick up on her weakness. But she's not the same scared, defenseless pony she was a month ago, is she?

Honestly, this works without knowledge of the prior story, besides the fact that Jason and Dash are her parents, and that they both have a heavy military background. Other than that, it's just another story.






Tags were hard with this, I have to say. There's only light romance, so don't worry about implied foalcon. There's no human tag, because Jason's only mentioned, and is barely involved if at all.

Reading this made my day.

Ahhhhhhh Yeeeeeaaaaaaahhhh Awesome. On a side note who likes to edit other peoples work and generally go Grammer-Nazi on others works cause I've decided to write an epic adventure story but I need a pre-Reader/Editor. If anybody is intrested in helping me out I'll give you honourary broship with me.

PS. I'm Canadian, that means you gotta help me.

Amazing, just amazing.

Freaking love it :pinkiehappy:

You stay awesome snail and I look forward to more from my Favorite author :rainbowdetermined2:

"My parents, they left for the war, and now I'm all alone and I'm just so--" She stomped on the ground, shaking free a couple angry tears. She felt a pair of hooves wrap around her neck, and barely got past her immediate response to push him away.

Something I found.

Something I spruced up.

i have always liked the scootaloo rumble ship. but now dash and jason need to watch out that they don't get caught when they decide to rut like rabbits

Jason should look a bit more like a fatherly figure :pinkiehappy: He looks evil there.

Scoots and Rumble FTW

Who's watching Rumble though? His brother wouldn't legally be allowed to just leave a colt alone for such a long time. In Scoot's case Fluttershy has "watching duties"

2258959
I know, but there aren't that many happy changeling pics out there.

Nevertheless I spruced it up again(I think this one is more to your liking.)

Yeah, I replaced it. This works better.

Scoots and Rumble kicked some serious fuh-LANK!
Not as much as Jason n' Dash, but pretty good for foals.
We salute you!

WHA!?! Luna?!

Nice picture and story. I was wondering when I get to read on what was going on with Scoots, only to realized that this has escape me for some odd reason or another. And, nice to see her making a new friend in Rumble.

C&Cs:
Cherilee...
> Correction: ‘Cheerilee’.
...and even though she came back t get them...
> Correction: ‘to’.
She pushed through the door of Sugarcube corner...
> Capitalize ‘corner’.

I like the complaints box, It's interesting to read.

"He walked out of the room and into what Jason assumed was the kitchen." Don't you mean Scootaloo instead of Jason here?

(into what Jason assumed) Should be Soots I think. Just trying to Help

2294433>>2294353
Yeah, I'm just used to writing the normal story I guess. Hopefully it wasn't too confusing. It's fixed now though.

Oh how I love your Author's Notes

One, foot? I thought they where ponies. Shouldn't they race on hoof?
Two, how does a pony pinch cheeks with a hoof? And while magic can explain that I think that could have gone differently.

Other than that, great chapter!
Looking forward to more Scootaloo/Rumble shipping!
Scootable? Rumaloo? What would it be called?

I love Scoots stories, so many different versions of her back story.

Besides that, I see you read my comment about Rumble's lack of adult supervision. And I really enjoy this innocent and inadvertant at times flirting of sorts.

2295839
I think it's rumbaloo. And on hoof didn't sound right, so, I dunno.

Viewer complaints:
There's not enough color in the text
I saw an i replacing an o somewhere
I can't cite where, because I forgot where it was
all the emotcons are staring at me
FIMfiction changed again
I'm tired
I'm not tired
I'm running out of things to complain about
the things I complain about aren't important
my head itches
im out of skips on pandora, and i don't like this song
Никто не может прочитать эту
или это одно
Everyone just used google translate, twice
The Watch was a crappy movie concept
there wasn't a satisfactory amount of cowbell
Waiter, there is a dead guy in my soup
Donald trump fired me
I'm not allowed to ride my bike indoors
A spy is sappin ma sentry
Those last 5 complaints refrenced something
no one probably got the 3rd one
I'm bored, bye

"Wanna see what Jason taught me?" She asked, grinning like a mad pony as Rumble nodded. "See this equation here, 2X^2 +6X?"
"Yeah..." He replied, not seeing where she was going. "Well you take the exponents and multiply the number in front by whatever number the exponent is, and then you subtract one from it." She scribbled on the paper. "So it becomes 4X+6"
"Where'd the second X go?"
"It's to the zero power, so it equals one. One times six is six."
"Okay, so what are you supposed to do with this?"
"You plug in the X, so in this case 4.5, and Y is the slope."

What kind if math is that for an elementary school?

Awww, ain't this a sweet chapter:pinkiesad2:, also can you post Jason's and Dash's part of the conversation?(since this story is way behind the other, I forget what he wrote at the time of this one.)

Knew this was gonna happen sooner or later.

2295992 Meh, it's your story. Write however you want to!

I really like the extreme contrast between the 2 stories. It really drives home just what Jason and Dash are fighting to come home to. :rainbowdetermined2:

2296049
Well, it's only division with numbers that work off a calculator. And Jason just taught her the calculus, which at that point is still pretty easy.

Way to change the mood with that author's note.
I think this sidestory is turning out great! :pinkiehappy:

2296944

I'm confused.:derpyderp2: Can you give an example of a homework problem, what Cheerilee's approach is and how Jason would solve this problem? I can't imagine what deriving from a quadratic equation has to do with division.

2298966
Ah, okay. They're given a quadratic equation, and the idea is that they have to find the slope at a point. With the absence of calculators or calculus, the closest you can get is with the difference quotient. So basically that involves picking values that are close on either side and dividing dy over dx to get the slope. Thus, the division.

MOAR!!! NOW!!!!Please...

someone disliked......they were drunk and their pc got hacked.

Canaaaadian Google, with Canaaaaadian bronies? And Canaaaaadian bacon with the Canaaaaadian pigs who go eh all day?
(The whole long Canadian thing was a Tobuscus reference. The Canadian bacon thing was just a joke one of my Canadian friends love saying)

*insert name of destructive activity here*.

i love that part! it describes the cmc perfectly!:rainbowlaugh:

2407335 What chu talking aboot Eh. We don't just love bacon....We also love maple syrup.

2407335 I'm a noob on the internet :twilightangry2:
can you tell me what a referral is :rainbowderp:

2407854
Reference, not referral.
I'm attempting to make a joke in the fashion of Tobuscus in his "Animated Adventures"series.
References, are basically supposed to tell an inside joke.

2407906 I know what your trying to do and what a reference is I just want to know what a Referral is

2407335
Oh my god that Tobuscus video. "If I give them my signature, it'll be worth less." So funny.

2407854
It's a chart of maps to various websites where people are searching for my stuff. It's under stats, a little button under the story.

A guy who's only reason to live was a pony huh? *cough* blue angels *cough*

2407916
DERP! I thought you were talking to me with the second line.

2407918

"So what are you doing?" "Playing Farmville." "AH!"

le me want foalcon Now:flutterrage:

They all clopped hooves together over the table.

Clapping not Clopping... Ponies can clap... I sure hope those foals weren't clopping... atleast not in public :rainbowderp:

2410268
But it makes a clop noise...

Love this side story, its so cutesy wootsy :rainbowkiss:

To many daws for one chapter.

Sadam pass up an expensive chance to kill people? sounds fishy:derpytongue2:fishy

ANYWAY, Great chapter....again....how do you do this? You have keyboard ninja skillz?:trixieshiftright:

yay atleast you thorught about foalcon Me gusta :pinkiehappy:

Great chapter!

The CMC with explosives, what could possibly go wrong? (with that statement I hearby invoke Murphy's law Muhahahaha)

I wonder what sort of trap she just stole?

I really want to see Scoots find an MLP DVD in a DVD player ( the 1 piece TV/DVD player thing) That'd make for an interesting conversation to say the least.

I wonder how many chapters before Scootaloo admits to herself that she has feelings for Rumble.
