This story is a sequel to Vanilla Twilight

Rainbow Dash has a problem.

She might be in love with Twilight Sparkle and has yet to admit it to anypony, least of all Twilight herself. After the events of Vanilla Twilight, the two have grown much closer together, spending more time together and sharing their interests. Unfortunately for Dash, Twilight hasn't caught on to her feelings yet, and she could be content with just letting things progress as they are...

If only she hadn't sent that blasted letter admitting it.

Now, thanks to a pair of meddling princesses, Rainbow Dash finds herself on a globe-trotting journey with the subject of her affections. On the surface, it might just seem like a simple task for the Princess, but for Rainbow Dash, it might be the very thing that forces her to come clean with her feelings, or forever face her doubts. For her, in the world of life and love, sometimes it's best to take it one dream and disaster at a time.

You just can't keep the princess of love down, can you?

Yessss, the wait is over.

Or at least one is. Now I have to wait for the next chapter instead. D:

A few months ago, I was browsing the romances and happened upon Vanilla Twilight. Just now, I was browsing the romances and happened upon its sequel completely by accident. Wierd how this works sometimes.

My initial reaction to seeing this in my feed was to put it on read later and read the first chap... after which I immediately switched from read later to favourite. The like, though, you are going to earn.

Keep up the good work!:twilightsmile:

“It’s Twilight? Rainbow Dash is talking about is Twilight?”

Extra "is" there :derpytongue2:

Meddlesome Cadence is meddlesome, and I love every second of it.

That last line, is that a quote or something you made up?
Either way this is brilliant! Can't wait for more!

I knew following you after reading Vanilla Twilight would be a good idea. Looking forward to more adorable TwiDash. Keep up the good work.

It's here hurray!

I can't help but wonder if the inspiration for the title is from the Owl City song of the same name :rainbowhuh:

I like where this is going. Can't wait for more :D

Been waiting so (im)patiently for this. I love where this is headed. I also find your writing style easy to read and follow. Keep up the good work! :pinkiehappy:

Also, any idea on how often it will be updated? Just curious, no rush! Feel free to ignore the question if you don't want to answer!


I'm currently looking at a 2 week update period, at least until I can build a sufficient buffer that I can't catch up to. I really hate not keeping to a schedule, and I'd rather work ahead than fall behind. I'm trying to power through my inherent laziness, but it's hard sometime. I'm hoping to have all of the chapters written by the end of the summer at the very least, then I'll speed up the updates.

That said, I'll try to get chapter one published by next Thursday, then start keeping to a schedule, just to get the real story started without too much waiting.

This did not disappoint and it was just the prolog too.

I'm looking foward to seeing the reveal and first kiss....

And that's why... you NEVER write Princess Celestia a note! :raritywink:

Amazing, and this only the prologue!!!
The wait for the next chapter will be the hell.

Oh, hey, cool! This should be a good read.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Update: Oh yes. This WILL be good.

~Skeeter The Lurker

Very nice set up, I look forward to the actual story itself.:twilightsmile:

“Love is never something to regret, Auntie, unless you let it get away.”

... Wow, that's actually a quote I can, for the most part, agree with...

2794384 bloody hell, how many stories do you read in a day. It seems that every story I read has a comment on it by you.


More than you can imagine.

~Skeeter The Lurker

2809244 I don't know about that. I have a story email update about once every three hours.
All the while looking for new stories.


My faves list? Double that. That's how many I've read.

And I don't always comment on everything.

~Skeeter The Lurker

2809261 Well darn, looks like I've got to read more. Might as well start on your faves list.
I'll send you a message if and or when I manage to finish it. :pinkiehappy:

Wow, Candance is goooooood:twilightoops:

Well Cadance sure did pull some strings:rainbowhuh:
I'm certain Dash means disaster in the best sense of the word:twilightblush:

A bit too many coincidences for almost anyone to not suspicious. We'll see though, because I definitely want to see where this is going.

Wow, Cadance must love the shit out of Twilight. That's an assload of money she just spent to make sure everyone but AJ was occupado. Obviously she didn't have to do anything to AJ.

Well, being a Princess of Love and all, I can fully expect some antics.


~Skeeter The Lurker

What about Spike? Maybe my brain automatically skips his name...not like he's important or anything. He isn't

Great chapter!! i was wondering how you were going to get the others not to go! it was fantastic!

Oh Cadance, you sly mare you. Onward to adventure!

Oh the hijinks in store.:ajsmug:

I was going to ask the same question. There is no such a word in neither of the two chapters. Same for dragon.
I assume we await until RD asks Twi where did he go.

And that is quite a lot of background work for Cadance. I think the only reason Twi didn't connect this sudden "urgent-work-attack" is because she's too excited to think like that.
Would be funny that some time after the Big Reveal and The Reaction she would be like: "Wait, isn't it odd that all our friends were unavailable right when we were going on an epic adventure around the world, during which you Told me? The odds are... Oh, come on! ALL ALONG?"

Well if Cadance managed to do all that I'm certain she could conjure up something for spike as well.

And as for the sudden workload:
Appeljack's is pretty normal.
If you connect the Catering and the dress orders. A noble family could have a sudden urge to celebrate their youngest first tooth or whatever, with new dresses and a feast.
The only suspicious thing is the phoenix eggs on fluttershy's doorstep.

2824580 But the phoenix eggs place everything else under a shadow of suspicion. Maybe for AJ it might be a coincidence but I have a feeling Cadence had something to do with the dress orders (Whatever a princess wears is fashionable after all) and maybe even the catering order.

A new chapter so soon? That's awesome! Thank you very much. I hope you keep up the good work. It's looking really good!

good chapter :)

This is a nice story so far.

I can't wait to see Dashie get the courage to ask Twi out.

Most Definitely, Cadence has a hoof in this, at least some of it. We all read the prologue after all.:twilightsmile:
I'm merely trying to say that it's not that obvious from Twilight's side.

Hey, even if it's gonna be a dream and a disaster, at least we won't turn around or slow down.
I'm sorry, I had to :twilightblush:

Am I the only one who thinks of the song "Fly Love" for any shipping involving Dashie? (From the movie Rio)


Fun Fact: I listen to Dreams and Disasters on loop for a while every time I start a new chapter, just to get me into the mood/theme of the story.

Haha. The chapter starts with a dream and ends with Rainbow saying "disaster". It's funny because title-drop.
