Chapter 3: Outer Space
"Rainbow Dash? Hello? Anypony home?" Spike called to the pony, waving his claws in the air in hopes of getting her attention.
The blue pegasus was snapped out of her thoughts by the dragon's voice, "Huh, wha?"
"I was saying that I need to go and run some errands and pick some things up before Twilight gets back tomorrow morning. Will you be alright if I leave you here by yourself?" the dragon repeated his question that Dash didn't hear.
"Oh, uh, you know what, why I don't I help ya out? Ya know, so you don't have to carry all of that stuff alone," Rainbow quickly added the second part to give her a reasonable excuse to go with him.
Spike nodded, "Alright, that will be really helpful for me!"
Rainbow Dash hopped off the sofa and walked with Spike out of the library and to the Ponyville marketplace. As they walked, Spike started some small talk between himself and the blue pony.

Chapter 5: You
Celestia's sun shined down upon Ponyville. It was a warm and pleasant day for all the ponies that were out and about. One blue pegasus, however, was a bit uneasy as she flew towards the library. Rainbow Dash, who convinced herself the night before to follow her friend's advice about being forward with her feelings, was in a panicky state. She couldn't help but feel nervous. Dash never had to tell anypony how she felt about them, and most of the time she didn't feel a need to. But now, she was given the task to tell Spike how she felt about him.
'Coming on, Rainbow Dash! You can do this. I mean, its just Spike, right? What's the worst that can happen? He's a little shrimp and it's no big deal if he finds it weird, right?' the pegasus repeatedly tried to calm herself, but to no avail. She didn't have enough time to as she arrived at the library's front door. Taking a deep breath, she knocked at the do

Chapter 4: You May Be Right
The next morning, Rainbow Dash woke up at her home in Cloudsdale. She dragged herself to the window of her room to find that Celestia's sun was high in the sky, meaning it was the afternoon. Scratching her head and unkempt mane with one of her hooves, she trotted to the restroom so she could have a quick shower. Her face was one that lacked apparent emotion. Inside of her head, Dash was still asking herself the question she could not answer the night before. Did she really have a crush on Spike?
She thought about it more as she showered, 'What is with me? I mean, this is Spike, we are talking about. The egghead's little assistant. Sure he's cute in his own weird way, but he's not really that great .is he?' Rainbow was unable to answer her own question. With a frustrated grunt, she turned the water off and stepped out to dry herself off, 'I need something sweet to calm me down'

Chapter 1: Turn The Page
Celestia's sun was shining down on Ponyville, giving a warm afternoon feel for the residents. While most of the ponyfolk were relaxed, there was one light blue pegasus who was racing towards her destination. It was Rainbow Dash, whose multi-colored mane was a blur to anypony who saw her. Finally landing in front of the Ponyville library, she checked the saddlebag on her back, double-checking to make sure it had not fallen off mid-flight, which it had a tendency to do. After her examination, she knocked on the door.
"Just a second!" a muffled voice from inside called out.
"No rush," Rainbow Dash replied to the voice. While she wasn't in a hurry, almost everything in her life was some sort of race or competition. It's how she was.
After what felt like eternity to the blue mare, the door was opened. Expecting to see her purple unicorn friend, Dash saw a small purple and green dragon.
"Oh, hello Rain

Chapter 2: New
The next day, Rainbow Dash flew back to the Ponyville library with the newly finished books in her saddlebag. The blue pegasus was surprised at herself for staying up all night to read the books Spike lent her. While she did feel a bit nerdy for reading all night, she had to hand it to Spike for recommending good books to her.
Dash landed and knocked on the door of the Ponyville library. Almost instantly, the familiar purple and green dragon answered the door with a warm and welcoming smile.
"Hiya, Rainbow Dash!" Spike greeted her, "What brings you around here so soon?"
"Would ya believe me if I said I finished those books you gave me?" Dash replied with a smirk.
Spike gave a grin, "I knew you would like those books! Come on in, I'll return the books for ya."
Rainbow followed the dragon inside the building to the table in the center of the room, "I have to admit, those were great books you suggested. I love

Chapter 1: Rotten Apples
It was a warm and pleasant day at Sweet Apple Acres. On the farm, there was an orange mare working hard amongst the grove of trees. She seemed to not be performing at her peak. It was if something was bothering her, and yet she didn't seem to know what it was. With a sigh, she continued and got lost in her work.
Her attention was turned from her work when a friend of hers trotted by on the nearby path.
"Hello there, Applejack!" a cheerful voice called out.
"Oh, howdy, Twilight. An' same ta ya, Spike," Applejack replied, looking up to the purple unicorn and the purple dragon that was riding on her back, "what brings ya'll to this neck of the woods?"
Twilight answered, "I need to pick a few apples for later."
"Alright. Well, Big Mac should be up at the farm ta help ya out," the orange pony stated, trying to force a smile.
"Can I stay here with Applejack?" Spike asked.

Chapter 4: Stop Draggin' My Heart Around
Celestia's sun was just beginning the go down in the east after another day of work at Sweet Apple Acres. Applejack was slightly troubled with her work during the day. This due to her recent revelation. Almost 24 hours beforehoof, the orange mare came to the conclusion that she was fond of Spike the dragon. Despite her persistent mind thinking about the dragon, Applejack continued with her chores, including the barreling in the barn that she was doing when the purple dragon stopped by.
"Hey Applejack! I'm really sorry that I'm late! I had to help Twilight and I totally lost track of time!" Spike rushed through the open doors.
Applejack was a bit caught of guard by his sudden appearance, "Huh?! Oh, howdy there, Spike. No need to fret. Just figured ah'd get started before ya got here."
"Well, seems ya didn't need me all that much," Spike commented, noticing that the pony was close to f

Chapter 3: Tangled Up In Blue
Applejack continued to watch the clouds roll by in the sky. With a heavy sigh, the orange pony's stare into the blue sky was accompanied with thoughts about Spike. She couldn't help but think about him.
'Why am ah so caught up with Spike? He's just a little dragon. Granted, quite cute, but he's jus' a little guy, Applejack closed her eyes before continuing in her thoughts, It's jus' plain weird though. With Spike bein' so chummy and comfortable with me, it felt really nice.'
"Maybe ah'm jus' out of it right now," Applejack spoke aloud to herself, keeping her eyes closed.
"Well, of course you are, Applejack, your frown isn't upside down!" a cheery voice blurted out.
The startled orange mare opened her eyes quickly to see the upside down head of Pinkie Pie a few inches from her own. "Wah! Uh .Pinkie?"

Chapter 2: Blue Sky
After completing the applebucking, Applejack and Spike were lying down on the grass. The orange mare and purple dragon were close as they looked up to the partly cloudy sky. A gently breeze was slowly pushing the clouds across the blue atmosphere, causing the two to point out the shapes.
"Hey Applejack, that one looks like a top hat!" Spike pointed up to the sky.
"Yer right, it kinda does. That one there looks like some kinda animal, like a rodent or somethin'," Applejack pointed to a different cloud.
Spike had trouble seeing what the pony saw, "I guess it kinda does. Maybe if it's super fat or something like that!" he then laughed at his own comment.
Applejack couldn't help but smile, "There's a few there that look like a bunch of apples."
Spike laughed again, "Of course you'd notice that, Applejack!"

Chapter 2: One Tree Hill
The long school day was finally drawing to a close for all the students in Cheerilee's class. All the ponies (and Spike) went outside and began to chat amongst themselves before leaving. Spike and the Cutie Mark Crusaders were talking and laughing as among themselves as two prissy fillies showed themselves.
"Well, well, it looks like the blank flanks got themselves a pet," one of them said.
The four turned to see two ponies, one pink and the other gray. It was Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon.
"Oh dear, not them," Sweetie Belle thought aloud.
"Don't you two have somepony else to annoy?" Scootaloo had a large amount of distaste in her voice.
"Nope, just your's. Aren't you lucky?" Silver Spoon said with a hint of sass in her voice.
"So, is this dragon belong to you girls or did you have to steal him?" Diamond Tiara trotted up to Spike, looking at him with interest. Spike gave her an odd look as he was

Chapter 2: Barricade
The next day, Celestia's sun rose over Equestria. Spike, against his wishes, was slowly walking his way over to Fluttershy's home on the outskirts of town. Both Twilight and Fluttershy insisted that Spike take a day off from his extensive work in the library. The dragon, on the other hoof, wanted to continue with his work, but he saw no real point in trying to argue.
Arriving at the pegasus's cottage, Spike took a deep sigh before he knocked on the door.
The door was opened by a yellow mare with a long, flowing pink mane, "Oh, good morning, Spike." Fluttershy's voice was inviting and warm.
"Hey, Fluttershy. I came by as I promised you and Twilight," Spike's response was slightly bitter. He really wasn't in the mood to 'take a break', as they would put it.
"Please come on in. I have a number of things ready to help you unwind and loosen up," the pegasus stepped aside to allow the small dragon inside.

How do you start one of these stories? It's another fine day in Equestria? It's a dark and stormy night in Equestria? No, that's not right. There has to be some other way to start this story without it being a cliche. This particular story deserves an introduction more appropriate. So much occurred that just starting off with a line like "once upon a time" just seems degrading. How do I make it work? Celestia's sun was high in the sky and the citizens of Ponyville partook in their communal duties. Nope. I feel like I've read that line before...many times. Luna's moon produced a radiant glow upon the quiet Ponyville. Nah. That doesn't look right either. Oh, I got it! How about this?
Spike and Rainbow Dash were friends.
Yeah, I like it better now.
Anyway, Spike and Rainbow Dash were friends. Good friends, in fact. Besides the truth that the two were tied to the Elements of Harmony, they also had many common likes and interests. Both had a grand sense of humor, and that fact definitely ai

The brilliant orb of night irradiated the largely unexplored mountains. Surrounded by its countless children of twinkling stars, the lustrous moon rested upon a canvas of infinite expanse. An entire universe lay beyond a cover of black and white, and the mysterious nature of it all entranced a baby dragon and pegasus. On a secluded cliff deep in the foothills of Equestria, Spike and Rainbow Dash sprawled out onto their backs and lied upon a cold surface of rock. Jutting out from a significant height, the precipice enjoyed total isolation from artificial lighting. The lack of such illumination allowed for an unobstructed view of the dazzling firmaments above. And as the two exhausted companions pointed to random constellations, attempting to guess their original titles and etymology, a period of serenity maintained a comfortable stillness. In the air there was only tranquility, and the nurturing effects sat well in Spike and Rainbow Dash's consciousness.
"Okay, look at that one." Spike

How does one expose the personal sentiments reserved by the subjects of this account? The many characters retained mixed emotions throughout the course of the game, and in the end confrontations broke out? No, that's just too modest of a retelling. Because certain desires had been brought to light. In the time it took to realize these passions, the red string of fate had already been plucked by the cosmic overseers of the universe. Thus, the simple acceptance of these longings initiated behaviors influential to the result of the bet. And when everything finally came together in a clash, a spectacular piece of history was recorded.
Of course, I could just tell you all how this story ended. I could probably do so with a short anecdote. I'd feel satisfied, because as I now recall, describing the copious accounts of frustrations, antagonisms and quixotic ventures embedded in the core of this tale would have my mood swinging vigorously. And in all actuality I'd like to avoid such an emotion

"I think everypony's watching us." Spike made aware, quickly releasing Rainbow Dash's hoof. "What do we do now?"
Rainbow's Dash's eyes lit up. "What? Because somepony's watching you're going to quit? Why don't you just admit you love me, and we can move on from this?"
"Not a chance, Dash." Spike tittered, pointing to the surrounding trees. "They're harmless. We still have a date to finish here."
"You know they're all here to witness my victory, right?" Rainbow Dash teased, blowing a kiss to Spike. "Now that I think about it, it's pretty obvious."
"We'll see." Spike handed the cup of punch to Rainbow Dash. "Here's your punch, cutie."
"Thank you ever so much, sugar-buns." Rainbow Dash countered swiftly. "Would you like some pie?"
"Sure, sweetie pie." Spike snickered at the pun, noticing Rainbow Dash's eye twitch in disgust

How do I recite the words of the chaotic? Many determined gamblers wanted a sure-fire method for success, so they all came up with ideas to interfere? Oh, if only that were the case. But as I remember there was much more to it than just the simple, disorganized offering of thoughts. There were councils, meetings, interventions and concentration circles relating to the bet initiated by Spike and Rainbow Dash. For an extravagant pot of bits sat comfortably at the end a shimmering rainbow, beckoning any willing to take a long, intense glimpse.
As the official bookkeeper, Pinkie Pie offered frequent, changeable odds to potential bettors. In order to efficiently inform the participants of the fluctuating nature of Spike and Rainbow Dash's game, the accountant applied mathematics and intermittent calculation to provide consistency in playing probabilities. It wasn't so difficult, because as an especially faithful overseer to the satisfaction of her customers, Pinkie Pie invested a grand disp

How does one continue a story like this? Ponyville's citizens enjoyed yet another day filled with serenity and uninterrupted harmony? Well, that's definitely not true. Sure, everypony desired to remain at peace within the very bounds of their refuge, but today wasn't particularly the day to depend on such expectations. Why? To put it simply: things went down. Big things.
The obvious reason as to why Ponyville would not experience an easygoing pass of the day certainly weighed upon two individuals. A baby dragon and an adult Pegasus, both maturing at equally progressive rates, were the direct cause for the future lack of understood coherence. Because these big things were going to lead to quite a ruckus. Discordance and incoordination would soon overwhelm the days to come, and I must be forthright in confirming the hilarity of it all.
Spike and Rainbow Dash were friends. That's already been agreed upon. Though it was this friendship that rocked Equestria like no other. Forget Nightmare

"You heard me. Want to go on a date with me?"
"You're asking me out?" Rainbow Dash asked, suspicious of Spike's spontaneity.
"Yeah, I am." Spike confirmed with a nod. "I'm thinking a nice little picnic would be nice. How about it?"
"I don't understand." Rainbow Dash shook her head, confused. "Aren't you trying to fight me on this? I mean, don't get me wrong, going on a date would just bring me one step closer to victory, but I don't get why you're asking first."
Spike crossed his arms and snorted. "Who cares why I asked? If you're so set on making me fall for you, then you should just accept right away, right? What, are you scared now?"
Rainbow Dash's eyes thinned conspicuously, staring daggers. "I'm not scared of anything."
Rainbow Dash then put a hoof to her chest and announced assertively. "I accept! You're on, Spike! This is goi

How does one convey the ambitious nature of this epic? Spike and Rainbow Dash had a bet, and everypony took sides? No, that's just too simple. To make note of the many differentiating opinions, clashing sentiments and widespread involvement serving as the very core of this tale takes effort. Ponies, mules, griffons, unknown creatures and deities had put forth investments so vast the shock factor was near improbable. Profit was on the agenda, and beings across the lands of Equestria desired a piece of that scrumptious pie. Who wouldn't, though? A bandwagon traveled throughout and it was accepting anypony willing to board.
A certain pink pony had been preoccupied with the duty of keeping bets handed in by the gambling participants. In all truth, there was no other perfectly suited for the role of bookkeeper than Pinkie Pie. Her inherent energy and fortitude proved thoroughly beneficial when it came to collecting wages. She made it her sole purpose to allow everypo

How does one emphasize the bizarreness of this event? Spike and Rainbow Dash had a date, and everypony watched from the sidelines? Nope, that seems too artless, if you ask me. To sufficiently describe the oddity that is Spike and Rainbow Dash's date would take an extravagant amount of time. Time I happen to have. The very crux of their date was curious, to say the least. How one could recount the convention itself as a date is actually pushing the envelope pretty far. But, alas, the label remained, and the gambling spectators were forced to prepare themselves for the instigation of the romantic clash.
Although betting contributors by the thousands found themselves huddled together, learning of each other's identities, there were two partakers overseeing the entire challenge in anonymity. These unspecified members of the pool were none other than Equestria's most famous rulers, the Royal Princesses. Only Pinkie Pie knew of their involvemen

The Royal Princess of the Sun hosted an annual ball for the upper-crust of Canterlot, and each year's event was just as magnificent as the previous one. Grandiose décor, gourmet foods, regal service and the noble melodies of classical performances stood as the most appreciated throughout the entire night. Of course, the Gala oozed exclusivity. Only those with special connections to the imperial family and those of great wealth were sent invitation, and as a result it always became a playground for elitist mingling. To be summoned by the coveted Golden Ticket was an opportunity unlike any other. It was the very treasure residents of Canterlot sought out for the whole of a year. And now it has come!

Spike was filled with dread at the thought of what could've been in that scroll. He also felt regretful: He had it right in his hand, he could've read it to make sure, or at least keep it from being sent. Most of all, he felt guilt. He felt he had done his friend, basically his only family, a terrible wrong. Twilight was still reading her book, not even giving Spike so much as a glance.

The crowd cheered as the final words were spoken. With a quick movement of the hooves a sea of hats flew into the air. Music played loudly through the entire auditorium as hugs and cheers were spread far and wide. Some were crying, some were laughing, and some could only just smile broadly.
Fluttershy's hat sat, still adorned to her head. She let out a soft sigh. It was graduation day from Flight School. She had barely passed, her flying skills were nothing impressive, but they were enough that the school deemed her ready to face the world. But despite that, she couldn't feel happy.
The one pony she had hoped would be there cheering her on, that would be in the stands praising her for how much she had accomplished wasn't there.

Rainbow Dash, who had been lying with her hooves crossed and head resting on her legs, lifted her head up and turned to look at Fluttershy. Rainbow had a dull, bored look on her face, before looking back out from the edge of the cloud, looking out into the blue sky and green land far beneath the clouds.

Fluttershy panted heavily as she lay on the cloud. Her wings were sore and her energy was low. She wasn't sure how much longer she could keep this up, it was exhausting her.
"Are you finished already? We've barely gotten any flying in today!" Rainbow sighed, hovering over the tired Fluttershy.
"I'm sorry " Fluttershy squeaked as she shakily got up onto all four hooves again.
"You're never going to keep your grades up if you don't get into better shape." Rainbow said flying down and forcing her on to her feet, spreading her wings and getting her into a flight stance, much to Fluttershy's dismay. "Okay, give me another speed lap around the loops. And GO." Rainbow yelled out before blowing on a whistle.
Fluttershy let out a soft cry before flying forward as quickly as he wings could carry her. Her wings had developed early and grown larger, but they weren't very strong despite that. Rainbow could only groan at Fluttershy's top speed, not even being a third of what she could

Fluttershy's ear perked up as she looked up at the sky from the ground, the animal friends that had gathered around her beginning to move away, returning to their lives before she had arrived.

The only sound that could be heard in Fluttershy's house was the very faint, very soft sound of sobs. Even the animals had grown quiet, as if in understanding of Fluttershy's plight. The only animal that hadn't kept quiet was Angel, who had tried several things to cheer her up, but nothing did the trick.
She just lay curled up on her bed, hiding under the covers. She was sure she'd cried enough tears to fill a bucket and now her eyes just felt tired and dry. She just wanted to stay curled up in her bed and be forgotten. She felt so insignificant.

"Twilight? What are you doing?" Her mother asked looking down at the little filly who seemed to be nestled on a pillow surrounded by a fort made out of books.
"The munsters can't get me while I read now!" Filly Twilight spoke up in her young cheerful voice before sticking her nose back into the book and happily read away at her latest adventure.
Celestia stifled a giggle as the more adult Twilight who stood next to her blushed.
"I forgot how adorable you had been." Celestia commented.
"Ahaha yea " Twilight said trying to laugh her blush away. The ghostly image of that memory seemed to fade away and was replaced with another, this one a scene of Twilight's mother reading a book to filly Twilight.
This had been the scene since they had entered the building that looked just like her old home in Canterlot. Various images of memories past blinked in and out of existence, all of them Twilight's. Most in this house were just of her as a little filly, inter

Fluttershy took a deep breath as she stared at the dark creature before her. The presence of the creature no longer crushed her, she could stand before it fine, but the being still sent a chill down her spine.
However, she had already decided, she had to do what was needed of her.
Fluttershy slowly walked towards the dark creature, it staring at her as if in odd curiosity.
"Father I know that a lot has happened between us " Fluttershy hesitated slowly, drawing nearer, "But everything that has happened is behind us now. I've moved on with my life. I've gained friends I care about deeply, I live happily in a house I own, I found love " Fluttershy smiled softly. The dark creature didn't move as Fluttershy drew closer, now right before the creature.

The music blared as the guests danced on the dance floor. Pinkie Pie had pulled out all the stops for this one. The dance floor was done up with a disco flare, flashing lights to raving music played as Pinkie passed records to the music host of the reception. The white unicorn with messy blue hair was very good at getting the guests to get up and dance. Of course the recently married couple were on the floor quite often as the guests of honor, Rarity constantly worrying about the state of Fluttershy's dress.
"Ugh, it's hard to believe what passes for recreational music these days." Octavia groaned over her wine glass. "It's nothing more than a loud ruckus to flashing lights." She sipped the red liquid gracefully.
"Oh lighten up a little 'Tavi, it's a party!" Soarin grinned as he looked up from his plate filled with apple desserts, "After all if the couple are enjoying it you should too!" His grin was big and goofy.

"I still don't think this is such a good idea." Fluttershy hesitated as she followed Rarity, who looked more like she was openly prowling than searching.
"Nonsense Fluttershy, we have everything that we'll need to properly find out what Rainbow Dash is up to." Rarity said mulling through things in her mind, "All we have to do is catch a simple glimpse of our elusive target and then we can track her." Rarity took another glimpse around the sky, "Fluttershy darling, why don't you fly up and see if you can spot her?"

Celestia's sun beamed through the aged window, lighting up the red and gold striped room. The room was a simple layout, for an apple farmer that is. On one side of the room was a brown desk, it was an old one, passed through generations of apple family members. Next to it was the closet door, white in color with apples painted on it. The only outfit that rested in it was the tattered Gala dress of Applejack. The earth pony in particular was fast asleep on her green cover bed.
"Hey, big sis" Applebloom whispered as she slowly open the door to the room.
Applebloom was pale yellow filly with a red mane and bow to match. She had Granny Smith's eyes, apple color. She was possibly the sweetest thing ever.

It was a bright and sunny Monday morning; the leaves of the tree house blew lightly in the calm breeze. A purple unicorn fluttered her eyes awake as the sun penetrated the light pink curtains of her bedroom.
"Ugh" she moaned, turning her turn into the pillow. "That stallion lied to me, these curtains don't block sunlight. I must remember to send him a complain letter."
It had been two days since the 'incident' at Applebloom's party. Neither Rainbow Dash nor Applejack had shown their faces in town since then, probably embarrassed to death. Twilight has known that feeling before on several occasions.
Twilight tossed and turned in bed, trying to fall back to sleep, but it was no use.
