Dan glared down at the large pile of mixed books that were right beside him. "Uh, OK. COULD YA BE MORE SPECIFIC?"
Twilight sighed. "It's the blue one with the red spine."
Dan searched through the pile. "Yeah, well you're outta luck 'cause I...Oh wait, here it is!" He triumphantly proclaimed as he handed the book to Twi.
"Thank you." she said as put it back in its slot.
"Well, this shelf is full." Twi slid down the ladder. "Guess we better get started on the next one."
Dan grumbled something under his breath, but, reluctatly, he dragged his hooves over to another shelf. For about the next hour or so, the two spent their time stacking away books in their correct order. It wasn't until they were done that Dan threw himself onto a nearby recliner and let out a long, allieviating sigh.
"UUGGGGHH!" he groaned into a pillow. "That was by far th
Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 21"So you're telling me, that the reason why Dan was in such a rush earlier is because you think he's gonna see Pinkie Pie?" Spike asked while walking home with Twilight. "Well, OK, but why does he want to see Pinkie anyway?"Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 213 years ago in Settings More Like This
Twilight Sparkle smiled smugly. "Hm...Spike, have you noticed Dan has been acting just a bit...odd...lately?"
Spike thought for a moment. "Hmmm. Well, now that ya metioned it, he has been a little weird lately." The dragon shrugged. "Why do you think he's acting like that?"
"It could be that maybe, he has a 'thing' for our perky, pink friend...and I am assuming that the feeling is mutual."
Spike paused for a moment, saying nothing. Then he burst out into laughter and rolled on the ground. "Haha! Y-you're kidding, right? Dan and Pinkie LIKING each other?! That's crazy! Pinkie Pie is so happy and cheerful and Dan is, well...not. How could that work?"
Twilight shrugged. "Honestly, I am not sure. I mean, I know I teased him about it but I didn't TRULY think that anythin
Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 19Dan, annoyed and angry, stormed over to Sugarcube Corner. His hooves pounded against the dirt path and his eyes narrowed as the bakery came into sight. To him at the moment, this was THE. WORST. POSSIBLE. THING. The stallion uttered some unfriendly words under his breath as he approached the bakery doors. However, he halted right before he put his hoof on the door knob.Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 193 years ago in Settings More Like This
Wait...What if she's not awake yet? Dan looked over at the sunrise. It was still pretty early. Feeling sheepish about going to the bakery at such an early hour, Dan turned around and headed back to the tree home. After taking only a few steps, he heard his name.
"Dan?" said a familiar voice. "Whatcha doin'?"
It was Pinkie Pie, standing in the doorway with confused eyes.
"Er, hey Pink. Uh...what are you doing up so early?" Dan asked, too nervous to tell her the bad news.
The mare's face brightened. "Oh, well I was just making some sweets to sell today and then I saw you! So I thought I'd s
Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 20The afternoon sun was shinning brightly over the Canterlot library where Dan, Twilight Sparkle and Spike were inside, looking through shelf after shelf. The trio began their search of a dimensional-transportation spell book hours ago and so far, nothing was found. Twilight sighed as she put away another book.Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 203 years ago in Settings More Like This
"Well it's not in that one either." she said exhasperated.
"Hmph. Man, how much longer is this gonna take?!" Dan grumbled from a nearby table.
An annoyed Twilight looked over at him. "You know, this would be a lot easier if you helped out."
"HEY! I looked through a few shelves and didn't find a thing!" Dan said, defensively.
"A few? Dan, you only looked at ONE shelf since we got here! Why don't you pull your own weight. I mean, after all, we ARE here for you."
Dan rolled his eyes. "Pfft. Whatever. I don't have to look if I don't want to. Not my fault in this stupid place anyway."
That was the final straw. "Dan, I'm sick of this! I've been nothing but nice and hospitle

As he stood there observing everyone as they danced around to the music produced by Vinyl Scracth, he couldn't help but wonder why they all found this so enjoyable. Parties were never really Dan's thing. Possibly because he was never really invited to them, much less have one that was just for him. Why would Pinkie go this far just to welcome someone? Why the heck was she so nice to him even when he wasn't on his best behavior? All of this made Dan feel...weird. He just couldn't explain it.
Dan's heavy thinking was interrupted by Twilight Sparkle and Spike.
"Hey Dan. Enjoying your party?" Twilight asked.
"Huh? Oh, yeah. It's alright I guess."
"You kidding? This is the best party ever!" exclaimed Spike. "I

"Oh boy, Dan! Today is gonna be super duper extra uber fun! What do ya wanna do first?" Pinkie asked, still bouncing around.
Dan shrugged then glanced at the basket Pinkie Pie was carrying. "I don't care but don't ya have to make muffins or something?"
Pinkie looked confused but then looked at her half empty basket. "Oh yeah! Hehe nah, I don't have to bake anything right now. I can do that later."
Now Dan was puzzled. "Wait, don't you work at that bakery? Wouldn't ya lose your JOB if put that off?"
Pinkie giggled. "No, sillyhead! I have the day off! I just like to bake for fun sometimes."

It was a bright, sunny spring day in Van Nuys, Los Angeles and Dan was at the new science center along with his best friend Chris and Chris's wife, Elise. It was just a few days ago when Chris invited Dan to go to the science center with him. Dan agreed although he began to regret his decision.
Worst........Place........Ever... Dan thought to himself, obviously not having a good time. He KNEW tagging along with Chris and Elise was a stupid idea, so why did he agree to go? He then decided that it was time to ditch that place. Just as he was heading for the exit, he heard his name being called.
"Dan! Hey! Where are you going?" Chris shouted, chasing after Dan with Elise jogging behind him.
"What does it look like? I am leaving this boring ol' place! I don't know I even came along! You two can hang here all you want but I'm going home!" yelled a very angry Dan.
Elise and Chris exchanged glances and sighed in unison. Was there anything that Dan DIDN'T hate? Elise step
Opposites Attract: A Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 5As Dan trotted down the streets of Ponyville, he noticed that the sun was beginning to set. He basically spent a WHOLE day in another dimension and didn't know how to get back home. Oh sure, Pinkie said that whatsherface might be able to help, but honestly, Dan doubted that ANYONE here could be of much assistance. Everybody or rather, everypony, seemed like a total whack job to him. Especially that Pinkie character. So why exactly did he take her advice?Opposites Attract: A Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 53 years ago in Settings More Like This
"This place is screwing with my mind." Dan thought to himself as he turned around the corner that Pinkie told him about.
He began to look around for the "treehouse library", if such a thing even existed. Then again, he WAS in Equestria. Land of magic, sunshine, and a bunch of nut jobs. It wasn't long before Dan saw to what appeared to be the place he was looking for, a large tree with a built-in home and sign with a picture of an open book on it in the front yard.
"Looks like a treehouse library to me. This must b

Pinkie zoomed all over the kitchen, opening pantries and pulling out drawers, trying to find all the ingredients needed for Dan's cake. Dan just stood off to the side watching the pink pony go on her little cooking frenzy. Many times he tried to tell her that he did NOT want a cake or a party for that matter. However, Dan realized that once Pinkie starts, it's hard to get her to stop. So he entertained himself by looking through some of her kitchen utensils.Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 93 years ago in Settings More Like This
"I feel like I'm forgetting something..." Pinkie Pie tapped her chin. "Oh oh oh! Now I know! How could I forget?"
Dan looked up from the whisk he was tinkering with. "How could you forget what exactly?"
Pinkie swung open the cupboard doors. "SUGAR!!!" She pulled down a large bag and dumped it all in the mixing bowl.

Unfortunately, this was no dream. Dan just saw a vortex of which he was spirling around in. At the end was a bright, white light. Questions raced in Dan's mind. How did I get here? Where am I? What's with that bright light? How the heck do I get outta here?
Faster and faster he spun towards the shining illumination. Suddenly, his whole body racked with pain. His head throbbed and he felt as if he was about to explode with agony. Never before has Dan felt so much anguish. What was happening to him?

"Ugh, it hurts worse the second time." He then looked over to his right to see a girl with pink hair, rosy skin and a multicolored knee-length poofy dress on. She studying her arms and legs as if they were something she's never seen before.
"Wow," she uttered. "So am I like you now? A...a.."
"A human? Yeah." Dan smiled. "How ya liking it?"
Pinkie wiggled her toes and fingers then giggled. "Hehe, I love it!" She jumped up and pounced on him with a big hug.
"Oh wow! This is gonna be super duper great! Now you can show me all the neato stuff in your world! I can't wait!" She let him go and smooched him on the lips.
Dan grinned like a goofball. He stood up and brushed himself off. "Well, I guess we should go tell Chris that I'm-"

Elise slid her purse off her shoulder and then handed it to her husband.
"Chris, will you please hold my bag? I have to use the ladie's room."
"Sure, honey. I will." Chris replied, taking the handbag out of Elise's hands and putting it over his own shoulder.

Although he was happy to find someone that genuinely cared for him and would want to skip the 'Let's just be Friends' step that he's been put on so many times before by others, he was also not too happy about the fact that in about a month, he'd be shipped back to a world where that special someone did not even exist.Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 223 years ago in Settings More Like This
The confused colt rubbed the back of his neck as he trotted inside Twi's house. He was about to slam the door shut but then remembered Twilight's rant earlier at the Canterlot library and decided to be nice by gently closing it. It was almost completely pitch black inside. The only illumination that could be seen was a lit candle on a desk where the violet unicorn was at. Dan yawned and went on over.
"Yo." he greeted in a hushed voice. "What are you doing?"
"Mm, just studying that dimension transportation spell we found earlier." She rubbed her tired eyes

"Hey there, Gummy," she whispered softly. "Sorry I haven't seen ya much today. I was busy hanging with Dan."
The alligator only blinked in reply. Pinkie gigled softly and hugged him gently. Then she let go and began stroking his back.
"Hey, Gum. This sounds silly, but I really like to be with Dan. I mean, I love hanging with anypony but when I'm with Danny, I get all fuzzy wuzzy inside and it feels like I'm about to burst! Did ya ever feel like that before?"
Gummy, once again, only blinked.
Pinkie sighed. "Earlier this evening, I did something that I never ever ever did before ever! Okay, well me and Danny were in front of Twi's house and we just got done saying 'thank you' to each other. Then, I sorta... kissed him on the cheek. It's funny, but I don't know why I did it. I mean I d

He loved the way she smiled, the way she giggled, the way she spoke...All of it made him fall harder and harder for her every time.Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story chapter 233 years ago in Settings More Like This
He tried not to get too close but all his attempts were in vain. He didn't want to become so emotionally attached to her because he knew that he'd have to leave soon and he didn't want the departure to be so depressing and traumatic. Life is not always in one's favor though. He always knew that little fact, of course. He grew up by that saying basically.
Now, though, it didn't seem right. To Dan, it just wasn't fair that he'd have to leave something that brought him happiness in his life. For once, he f

"Ugh. Guess we gotta clean this stuff up before we go." Dan said, staring at the dismay of juice boxes, bread crumbs, and straw wrappers.
"Don't worry, Dan! I got this!" reassured Pinkie.
Pinkie zoomed all around, picking up all the trash. In a flash, the pink pony had everything tidied up and packed into the picnic basket. She smiled brightly as she picked up the basket and trotted over to Dan, who was amazed on how fast she cleaned up.
"Wow, Pink. Gotta hand it to ya, you are pretty fast at picking up. You also enjoy doing it. Which I don't get."
"Well," said PInkie "The trick is to make it a game."

"Whatcha mean?" Pinkie asked, sounding a bit upset. "Didn't ya like my mom?"
Dan waved his hands defensively. "It's not that. I just find Mother's Day in general stupid." He said as he started up the car and drove off.
Pinkie gave him a surprised and confused look. "Really? Why do you say that, Dan?" Suddenly, a thought occured to her. "Oh! What did you get your mom, by the way? Wait! Let me guess! Was it a card? A candle? A gift card? A bouquet of flowers? Candy? Some-"
Dan burst out into laughter. "Ha ha ha! Yeah, right! Like I'd actually waste my cash on some gift for HER."

We'll have streamers, confetti, banners and many, many, many BALLOONS! Then we can pick out music, set up tables, get party hats, make goodie bags, and..." The excited mare ranted on and on about the party.
Dan let out an exasperated sigh. He liked it better when she was silent and didn't ramble about stuff. Too bad that only lasted a few minutes. An urge to tell her to shut up hit Dan, but he didn't go through with it because it'd be pointless. She'd just start back up again.
