Geetiano: A Daydream AwayFeliciano liked the café he'd been going to for the past two years.
It was a cute little book café. Though, his favorite part of the café was probably the waitress, a petite girl with expressive brown eyes and a smile that lit up her entire face, named Geety. She was a (usually) patient girl, whom he'd been friends with for two years.
She could hold her patience, though not for long, but she was honest, and sometimes a little bit blunt, though she'd try and say things in a bit of a nice way, and got bored a little bit easily, and preferred to solve things on her own.
She had dreams of travelling and seeing not only more of the country, but more of the world, and he was completely fascinated and rapidly falling in love with this girl at the café, who he'd become friends with, after about a month of coming to the cute little book café, which was only a temporary thing.
He could clearly imagine the two, sitting on a kitchen floor, him feeding
AU: The Tragic Life of Feliciano VargasI returned to the computer, more importantly to my webcam, and showed the girl I was skyping with what I had brought back. The pillow wasn't too big and it wasn't too well kept together; it was an old pillow with some of the stuffing coming out of it. Granted, for an old pillow, it still looked mildly decent and the color of the flowery design hadn't faded too much.AU: The Tragic Life of Feliciano Vargas3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Do you see this?" I asked her with a bit of a whine in my voice. "Do you see what you have done to my Geetiano pillow? It's losing its fluff!"
Through the magic that was Skype, Geety was able to see my pillow and creepiness. She frowned a little bit and with a slight British accent, she spoke, "But shouldn't it have lost its fluff over a year ago?"
I looked down as I hugged my pillow a little tighter; my voice came out nearly as soft as Fleur's. "And I've been sad ever since I'm sorry; I'm just really emotional about this "

The bass on the stereo was turned up so loud my ears felt like they were bleeding. I could sense the others did too; Isa had her hands over her ears. Alli was cringing every time the chorus of the song, the loudest part, would come on. Cam and Zoe had actually stepped outside because of it.
I saw a few guys dancing wildly in front of the stereo, actually enjoying it. I looked around, searching for Rosie. She had disappeared off with Arthur again. I shook my head and laughed; they were made for each other.
Geety was the only one even attempting to make a conversation. She was yelling at the top of her lungs, and yet I couldn't comprehend her words. I made a gesture to tell her I couldn't understand her. She nodded, knowing what I meant.
At that exact moment, my boyfriend entered the room. There was a dip in the loud hum of the crowd. The stereo wa
Allegrezza - Part Three+One merit Octavia had to give to Buck Daniels, was that it slowly washed away any capability she had for tasting, until she no longer grimaced with each sip. In fact, she even gained the courage to move up to, 'slugging,' the drink, not that she'd ever be caught dead using that phrase. It was after several on-the-house glasses, from an unknown benefactor, that she found herself lacking the co-ordination to even pick up the glasses anymore. Her teeth simply failing to gain purchase on the sides. Upon blearily inspecting the two glass-mirages in front of her, she noted that instead of the stout glasses she had been given all night, she was instead looking at a slender, flute-like glass. A unicorn glass, for the only non-unicorn musician in the business. Terrific.Allegrezza - Part Three+4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She was so engrossed in attempting to defy both nature and pony design by trying to lift the glass with her tongue, that she hadn't noticed the absence of the thudding bass that had troubled her eardrums moments ago. She
Allegrezza - Part Nine+Octavia brandished her chocolate-pickle tipped spear at Vinyl's muzzle, who had her own stick locked between her teeth. The two stared each other down, willing the other to make the first strike. It was Octavia who made the first light jab, aiming for Vinyl's mouth. Vinyl parried the stick with a deft move of her own, poking Octavia's cheek for good measure. Octavia jabbed once more, pulling back as Vinyl moved to block the attack, then bombing the pickled onion straight into her open mouth. She laughed triumphantly, a wicked grin spreading across her face as Vinyl grimaced at the taste in her mouth.Allegrezza - Part Nine+4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
To an outside observer, this may have presented itself as being slightly foalish. However, the barcolt had drawn differing conclusions to what a pony with a closer view and a cleaner mind may have created. He coughed lightly; a professional cough, perfectly calculated to be audible, but not intrusive. Truly, learning to cough in the right manner was half a barcolt's job, the other half - s

It must be said that she had never awoken upside-down on her own couch before. Octavia was genuinely unaware whether the pounding in her head was the alcohol permeating her blood, or the blood itself collecting in her head. Her head itself lolled over the edge of the couch in as graceless a way as could be imagined.
She shifted her body, trying to at least get the ceiling to go back to where it belonged, and return is space to the floor. This turned out to be more difficult than she had imagined, as her drunken self had apparently managed to delicately balance herself in this precarious position. A balance that was lightly stolen away as she moved, and fell head first onto the carpet, the rest of her body joining its leader in a crumpled mass above it.

A hoofful of Stagner's bottles later, and she devolved into a barely coherent mass of stumbling limbs and slurred speech. While it had crossed the minorly tipsy Octavia's mind to simply let her walk home, and maybe watch at a distance with a box of popcorn, she decided it was for the better to help her somewhere safe where she could allow her liver to slog its way through the backlog of alcohol in her system.Allegrezza - Part Ten4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Thankfully Vinyl's choice in the winebar for the night had placed them within reasonable distance of Octavia's apartment. So Octavia had opted to take her home, (not that Vinyl was anywhere near capable of conveying a yay or neigh on that question.) It was due to this turn of events that Octavia found herself half-propping, half-dragging Vinyl to her home. In essence she had become a ponified crutch, and admittedly, her alcohol intake for t

She entered the home, evading the various forms of detritus that scattered the apartment. She tip-hoofed into the bedroom, finding her quarry fast asleep, at a considerably late hour as well.Allegrezza - Part Thirteen4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Octavia loomed over the unconscious mare, once more prodding her hoof sharply into her withers. Ponies are not often known for their burrowing capabilities, but Vinyl managed to counteract both nature and Charles Darwhinny, and evolved the ability to burrow ever deeper into her covers to avoid Octavia.
"Honestly Vinyl, will you just get up? It's ten in the morning!"
Vinyl's eyes peeped out from her warren in the bedsheets. "But it's Sunday! Nopony gets up early on Sunday, and I'm still hung over from those Gargle-Blasters."

"Sheesh, Arthur probably doesn't even remember his teacher from that class," Alli muttered angrily, as she stood up, and stormed over to our bickering brothers.
"OKAY, LOOK HERE!"
While the boys weren't phrased by Alli's shouting, it certainly caught my attention. At the sound of her shouting, I ran for cover. The cover happened to be under a table. From underneath the table, I could hear Alli telling off Arthur and Antonio.

"Well, what're we waiting for? Let's go!" Rosie said, grinning widely.
"Aren't we supposed to be waiting for Feli?" I tilted my head.
"Oh, hey, look! Is Geety finally admitting she's in love with Feli?" Zoe smiled.
Damn it, why must my friends tease me?
Cam faked a tear. "This is so beautiful,"
"SISTER IN LAW," Alli, who was close enough to Feli to be like an older sister to him, yelled at me.
"Well, so we are officially planning the Geetiano Wedding!" Rosie smiled, teasing me too.
"House. Geety is excited. They're probably inside anyways, we're 30 minutes late," I said, unable to hide how excited I was, as I ran inside, opening the door so we could enter the house.

Vinyl watched from the living room, as the silence from the kitchen signalled the fact that Octavia was in fact not making tea, and may or may not be having a mental breakdown and stuffing her head in the oven. While Vinyl was partially worried, she didn't want to intrude in on her, mainly because her hopes might have been shattered, and she would've just found Octavia moping around next to the mop pail. Instead she tried to reach out her benevolent ideals using her voice.

"I can't take it any longer,
Thought that we were stronger,
All we do is linger,
Slipping through our fingers."
I climbed into Ivan's truck on Saturday, just as I had agreed too. The snow had coated everything in the crowded inner-city school yard. Snow had been shoveled to clear a path for trucks to drive on. That snow had turned gray and brown from debris. The sky, dark and filled with clouds, seemed to make everything feel boxed in. Cold, shivering children lined the sidewalk.
The desperate scenery reminded me of my thoughts. I looked at Ivan's stoic face as I clambered into the passenger's seat. He didn't smile at me, didn't even nod to acknowledge my presence.
It had been like this for a couple of weeks now. We barely exchanged words anymore. Smiles were even rarer. I couldn't tell if it was because I was pulling away from him, or if he was pulling

She bowed and thanked her audience, before revealing her iridescent grin to Octavia. Octavia was loathe to admit it, but Vinyl had thrived without the aid of her horn. Though she had to give Vinyl her due, she was glad the show had went without any catastrophic failures that would culminate in the mob storming the stage.

Her normally porcelain-white face was blushing a similar shade to her eyes, and her heart was fighting against her rib cage as if it wanted to escape before the whole respiration thing got a little ugly.Allegrezza - Part Sixteen4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Bonbon leaned back from her vigorous back patting, glancing at the tray before setting it out of both their reaches. "No problem at all. Sorry if I shocked you."
Her breathing had improved, but the blushing only increased. "Shocked? I'm not shocked, I'm cool with fiillyfo-with being with mares and all, it's okay. Just that yeh, I didn't know you could actually marry another mare."
Bonbon giggled into her hoof, her beige cheeks lighting up slightly. She was especially quick

The other, of course, being Vinyl's drink. She delicately placed the glass on the table, but still with enough force to produce a noticeable bang. She had to hoof it to herself, she was doing well despite the fuzzy veil of alcohol that was draped over her mind.Allegrezza - Part Eight+4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Vinyl shot up from her semi-conscious position, her eyes turning from bright joy to dulled confusion. She tapped the glass, sniffing the contents before turning her confused gaze to Octavia.
"What the hay is this?"
Octavia had expected this, she'd swapped Vinyl's alcopops for something at least passable. Partly because she wanted to sit with somepony who wasn't drinking foals' juice, and partly because she hadn't a clue what the drink was called.
"It's a glass of Stagner's Pear Cider, try it."

It was, however, the first time it had landed her in bed with another mare.
She blearily opened her eyes, the open curtains allowed Celestia's sun to invade her retinas in full force, making her clamp them shut again. She then clamped a pair of hooves to her head, and took up the foetal position. The irritatingly familiar sensation that made every noise seem like a horrifically out-of-tune violin being played in her skull returned. She summoned the energy from her massively depleted reserves to stretch her limbs, which relieved her aches, slightly.

A final glance at the mirror, a proprietary shot of Glenmorangie to start the night, and she felt ready to watch as Vinyl acted upon her wager.

Beyond it stretched seats arranged in rows all the way to the edge like the old Ponan Colosseum, creating an inclined semi-circle focused toward the stage in its centre.Allegrezza - Part Fifteen4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Vinyl mused over the comment as the pair trotted towards the performance hall. It was just visible in the distance, exactly the sort of thing Victorian-era ponies thought would look cool. To Vinyl, it just looked old. She couldn't help but remember the jumpers her grandmare would knit for her as a filly, and she'd have to wear, begrudgingly.
