Chapter 1
It was a dark and cold moonlit night; the stars were twinkling elegantly in the clear sky above. Fluttershy enjoyed this amazing beauty, and all of its tranquility. She usually frequented this activity for herself during the night when she didn't have to manage her animal friends or deal with any other pony. But this time, the Shy Pegasus brought along a friend to join her. Not just any friend, but instead her best friend, Rainbow Dash. Rainbow had been acting a tad weird and distant lately. It was very peculiar, especially for someone like her. She usually was very outgoing and socially aggressive all of the time.

The reason for her Rainbow Maned friend to be so distant from her or the other ponies wasn't a mystery in the slightest. Fluttershy knew exactly why she had been acting this way.

-----------
About two weeks back, Fluttershy and Rainbow dash had been planning going up to Cloudsdale for a visit. The idea was Rainbow's and she didn't want to go alone; Besides, Fluttershy quite liked the idea as well. It would be nice to revisit their home town after so long, even though Rainbow did live there. She seemed to spend more time living on clouds than the city itself though. What was odd however was that even though Twilight offered to use her cloud walking spell so they could all go, Rainbow had seem hell bent on making sure just her and Fluttershy went. Fluttershy couldn't quite figure Rainbow's reasoning behind this stubborn decision but she followed along with it anyways.

They were to be staying in a nice house they had rented for the occasion for 5 days. Fluttershy had an amazing time; Dashie and her went to all of their favorite diners, shops, and even to a Wonder Bolts show. Fluttershy wasn't a big fan of the show or the Wonder Bolts, fast sports racing wasn't quite her thing. But it made her happy none the less to see how excited Rainbow had gotten over going when she had acquired the tickets.

They were nearing the day of their departure when it had happened. Fluttershy was in her room packing here bags for the trip home the next day when Rainbow Dash came in.

"Hey F-Fluttershy, what's up?" Rainbow asked, trotting a bit closer.

"Oh not much, I'm just getting everything ready for tomorrow, shouldn't you be packing too?" Fluttershy replied, turning to face Rainbow Dash.

Rainbow seemed to stop in her tracks, looking extremely nervous and antsy. "Yeah, I was just about to start…but I needed to tell you something first." Dashie said with her voice cracking a tad.

The yellow-colored pony had never seen her friend so nervous; she usually had no trouble sharing her thoughts at all. No matter why they were.

"What is it? Is something the matter?" Fluttershy asked worriedly

Rainbow Dash hesitated for a moment "There's no easy way to say this… so I'll just come out with it." She paused for a moment, and then spoke once again "Fluttershy, you may not feel the same way back, but I've been…" Dashie trailed off

"You've been?"

"I've been starting to…"

"Yes?"

Rainbow looked troubled and eventually blurted out "Fall for you; I've been starting to fall for you. I have been trying to ignore this feeling for a long time. But it seems every time I'm with you, alone or not, I can't control these feeling I get. This heart pounding love I feel for you, and even if you don't feel it back I can't keep it a secret anymore. I love you, Fluttershy." Rainbow looked away and blushed vibrantly

Fluttershy had no idea how to respond to this, or how she even felt on the subject. She knew she enjoyed every moment she had spent with Rainbow Dash but she had never once thought of them as more then friends. Fluttershy was straight, she always had been. But when she heard about Rainbow Dash's feelings for her, she could feel herself slipping into a deep bi curious confusion. Even she had at least once felt her heart pound unusually around the rainbow colored Pegasus, but what was she to do now?

After what seemed like an eternity, Fluttershy could feel herself break out of shock, which led to her being increasingly shy while Dashie stood in front of her, waiting on some sort of response.

Fluttershy eventually found the words on how to express herself "I don't quite know what to say, Rainbow. I will admit I have felt something more than friendship towards you on a few occasions… But I don't know. I don't know if I even like you that way, or if I could even hold a relationship… I'm so sorry…" Fluttershy could feel her voice lowering on the last words as she backed into the corner until she bumped the wall; she then proceeded to cower on the floor. She hated hurting anypony, especially her closest friend, like that.

Rainbow looked to her friend and instantly realized how much she had stress she had put on her with what she had said. She walked over to the cowering pony and laid a hoof on her back.

"Hey, hey now… calm down Fluttershy. I had no right to put you on the spot like that… You don't have to make a decision, now or ever. If you're unsure about us being more than friends, then I'd rather have you be happy then make a decision you'd regret. Feel free to come talk to me about it if you feel the need too"

Fluttershy could feel herself stop cowering as a warm feeling of joy and relief overtook her. She looked up to Rainbow who was smiling down at her. Wow, even a competitive Pegasus like her could be sweet and forgiving.

Fluttershy leaned up a bit and gave Rainbow a slight nuzzle under the neck. "Thank you..." She whispered quietly

Rainbow Dash blushed as she felt her heart skip a beat "It's no problem, really" She said with a soothing voice which only increased Fluttershy's thankfulness. As Dashie left the room and closed the door Fluttershy decided she should get back to her packing. But as she was going to do so she felt as if she couldn't, as if something was holding her back from focusing on even a simple task such as this. She lay down on her bed and curled up in the blankets. Her mind began to drift off about what being with Rainbow Dash would even be like. Fluttershy knew she was sweet and kind on the inside and she rarely ever made her feel uncomfortable like this.

"Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad thing at all" Fluttershy wondered aloud and she squeezed her pillow and turned to the ceiling. "I mean… maybe it's worth a try…"
Fluttershy turned off her lights and continued to ponder what things could be like until a deep sleep took her.

Rainbow Dash went back to her room, despite her success with comforting her shy friend, her real goal was still a complete failure. And she was thoroughly embarrassed, to say that least. She quietly moved to her window and stared to the moon and stars.

"Well I can only hope to Celestia that things don't start going downhill from here…" She whispered to herself.
--------------------

The next day the sun was out bright and the sky was practically clear. The warmth of the sun beamed upon Rainbow Dash's back as she sat outside, waiting for Fluttershy to gather her things.

After a long while Fluttershy finally arrived bearing a brown suitcase in her mouth.

"Jeeze, what took you so long?!" Rainbow asked annoyed. Fluttershy tried to speak but the suitcase in her mouth blocked her from saying a word. She spat it out and giggled lightly.

"I'm sorry Dashie; I had t-trouble gathering everything…." Fluttershy spoke shyly. She seemed to be acting shyer than she usually did, which was saying a lot for Fluttershy.

"Is something wrong Fluttershy?" Rainbow carefully asked

"N-n-n-n-o…" Fluttershy voice dropped to a shy squeak

"If you say so…." Rainbow sounded half hearted saying it. She was worried about what might become of her and her closest friend's relationship after what happened. "Well… How bout we go home now?" She spoke lightly waiting for a response from Fluttershy. All she received was a light nod which she took as a yes. Fluttershy and her began flight for Ponyville. The trip to get home was very short seeing how close Ponyville was to Cloudsdale. But none the less it seemed like it took a year to get there.

There was plenty of awkward tension between the two Pegasi so no words were said. Neither of them had even decided if the others should know. They had no idea what to expect them to think when they found out. Fluttershy knew she didn't want to ruin Rainbow's reputation at all, it must've token a lot of courage to do what she did.
---------------------------

After the trip Fluttershy eventually eased back into wanting to visit and spend time with Rainbow Dash. But Rainbow seemed to be steadily avoiding her. Whenever she wanted to talk to her Rainbow would make up some excuse like 'I got weather jobs to do' or 'I need to practice a new trick I made'. Fluttershy sensed she was lying do to how offgaurd and nervous she sounded when she gave the excuses. Had what happened start to break down Rainbow's self confidence around her? She knew she needed some solution to this; she didn't want to loose Dashie as a friend forever.  She tried to come up with something, anything to cheer Rainbow up as she paced around her house for a long while. Suddenly, a brilliant idea hit her. She would take Dashie out on a nice stroll through a forest into a peaceful clearing she used to relax when she felt stressed or down.

Fluttershy went to tell her Blue-Colored friend about the plan. She would not take no for an answer this time.

Rainbow Dash was busy perching atop a cloud, resting under the sun. Fluttershy flew up to her and nudged her lightly"

"Come on Dashie, get up… Please…" She barely spoke at all. After a good 10 minutes of shakes and nudges and continued asking Rainbow did finally awake.

"W-What do you want Fluttershy, I'm busy, I can't talk right now" She spoke inbetween yawns

"No! I will not take no for an answer this time, you are coming with me!" Fluttershy demanded. Rainbow was impressed; Fluttershy rarely demanded anything at all unless she was serious. She figured she would play into whatever plan her friend had come up with.

Later that night Fluttershy led her into an amazing clearing. Everything was so beautiful, bunnies bounded around as birds fluttered in the trees. The ground was just right, no bumpy hills or harsh dirt. Trees surrounded the area in a tight but comfortable way; it was the perfect place for anypony to get something off of her mind.

"Why'd you bring me here Fluttershy?" asked while exploring the area
"You've been acting so distant and stressed lately… I thought you could use a bit of a refresher" Fluttershy smiled lightly at her. Rainbow Dash felt her heart pounding again, she was here, with the pony she's in love with, in a secluded forest, under the stars. She looked away and blushed. She couldn't let herself try anything, not even in such a perfect setting. It's why she had been avoiding Fluttershy in the first place. She didn't want to mess anything up more than she already had.

Fluttershy could sense her friend edging away and feeling embarrassed. She had been thinking awhile on it, she knew that despite who she was she felt a connection deeper than friendship with Dashie. She knew that she could only act in two ways right now, and she knew she'd have to make this decision when the time came. Without a word being said Fluttershy slowly trotted towards Rainbow Dash and buried her head into Dashie's neck. Rainbow Dash nearly screamed out of sheer excitement and shock. Her already fast beating heart and started to go a mile a minute. Was this really happening? She closed her eyes and enjoyed the feel of Fluttershy's warm head under her chin.

Fluttershy continued to lightly nuzzle Rainbow over and over again. Rainbow, who was enjoying every second of it, was still in complete shock and amazement. Fluttershy pulled back and had a smile on her face when she looked to Rainbow Dash, who was blushing redder than an apple.

Fluttershy laid down on the soft grass and gestured for Rainbow to follow. Rainbow, surprised at how her friend seemed to be running things on this night, laid down close to Fluttershy. Rainbow couldn't help herself as Fluttershy rubbed her cheek against hers. This is too good to be real, I have to be dreaming. But she wasn't, she turned to face Fluttershy who still retained a smile on her face. She could see how bad Fluttershy was blushing too when the two locked gazes and looked into each others' eyes.

Rainbow couldn't resist herself, she just couldn't, this was all too much and it all felt too right. She moved in quickly and kissed Fluttershy, closing her eyes and not letting up. Fluttershy's eyes popped wide open, she wasn't expecting a kiss but she didn't pull back.
Instead, she leaned in to return it. No matter what bad could come from this, the moment was perfect. And Fluttershy did not dare end it.

Both ponies pulled back and Fluttershy hid her face in Dashie's neck. Rainbow Dash guessed the kiss had embarrassed her friend some; but she didn't complain about where Fluttershy had chosen to hide her face. Rainbow Dash lightly nuzzled once again. Both of them could feel their hearts beating rapidly.

Not another word was said as they lay as close as possible to each other, staring at the stars in the sky. Fluttershy eventually fell asleep, laying her head on the grass below Rainbow's chin. Rainbow adjusted her position and laid her chin upon Fluttershy's head.
She closed her eyes and fell into the best sleep of her life,

Chapter 2
-----------------------
It was a warm and lit as the sun rose in the morning. Animals were creeping out of their habitats and looking around, going about their every day routine. Fluttershy was still sleeping when Rainbow awoke. She lifted her sleepy head and yawned, she wasn't a morning pony. But that didn't matter, not this morning; she soon realized who she woke up next to and the memories of the night before came back to her. A smile overtook her face as she blushed and looked down to her sleeping friend.

"She looks so perfect when she's sleeping, like an angel" Rainbow whispered to herself.
She decided she wouldn't wake the sleeping pony just yet as she sat down on the grass and leaned back against a tree.

Wow, what a night; she still couldn't believe it had happened, easily the best moment of her life. Dashie sat there for awhile, her heart pounding as she watched Fluttershy peacefully sleeping a few inches away from her. What more could she ask for? She got to spend a night under the stars with the pony of her dreams.

Eventually Fluttershy did wake up, slowly rising her head and stretching as she blinked and yawned. She looked and saw something peculiar, no Dashie next to her. She frantically looked around on the ground near her until her eyes panned up and rested upon Rainbow's figure.

"Hey Fluttershy" Dashie spoke softly. Fluttershy blushed and looked away.

"S-s-s-sorry for looking frantic t-there" Fluttershy squeaked. Rainbow Dash smiled as she got up and walked over to Fluttershy, giving her a reassuring nuzzle.

"No need to worry about it, it was actually pretty cute" Rainbow smiled as she looked at Fluttershy. Fluttershy blushed even more as she hid her face in Rainbow's neck. Dashie didn't complain what so ever, she lightly licked the base of the shy Pegasus's hair. Fluttershy slowly eased out of her hiding spot and looked to Rainbow Dash, who was gently smiling back at her. A warm feeling overtook Fluttershy, she had never felt this way before about anything or anypony. Was this the heart pounding feeling Rainbow Dash mentioned two weeks back? She seemed to be locked in a deep gaze with her best friend for what seemed like forever.

Rainbow pressed her head against Fluttershy's lightly, keeping her gaze focused on Fluttershy's eyes. Fluttershy could feel her heart rapidly beating; feeling like it was going to burst out of her chest. Her wings involuntarily spread out wildly as she felt the warm feeling surge through her very core once again. The love was practically radiating from the two as they looked into each others eyes.

Dashie kissed Fluttershy lightly, closing her eyes. Fluttershy wasted no time returning it as she too closed her eyes. Animals all around stopped their activities to watch the two ponies. None of them quite understood what it was they were doing, or what they were feeling. But the animals could sense it was something magical, none the less. The kiss lasted for a long time before both Fluttershy and Rainbow pulled back blushing deeply.

"I can't wait to tell the other ponies about this" Fluttershy said excitedly. Rainbow felt a wave of shock engulf her, the others can't know if this; they would reject it, worse, they'd try to prevent it.

"No, no, no, no, no, no! They can't know of this Fluttershy!" Rainbow Dash could feel her voice rising a bit

"W-w-why not?" Fluttershy shyly replied.

"You know as well as I do they wont accept it, they won't allow it, we can't tell anyone about it, not even the rest of our friends!" Rainbow was nearly yelling now.
Fluttershy squeaked and winced a bit when she heard Dashie's voice raising.

"B-but they're our friends Dashie, we have to tell them" Fluttershy insisted

"Please Fluttershy, you don't understand, we have to keep this between us" Rainbow said, lowering her voice to a softer tone. Fluttershy lightly nodded, she knew but didn't want to believe that what she felt for Dashie had to stay in secrecy.

"H-How will we hide it from them?" Fluttershy asked reluctantly, she didn't want to have to keep this a secret at all.

"We'll only do this when we're alone, away from anypony's prying eyes; I'm sorry, but this is how it has to be." Rainbow replied carefully. Another nod from Fluttershy told her she understood. "But….on a lighter note…" Rainbow continued

"Y-yes Dashie?"

"Waking up next to you was just about the best thing in Equestria this morning." Rainbow said smiling. Fluttershy looked away blushing brighter than ever.

"You really mean it?" Fluttershy mumbled shyly while pawing at the ground slowly. Rainbow Dash moved in and rested her chin on Fluttershy's head.

"Of course I do…" Dashie whispered lightly in her ear.

--------------------------

Soon after that Rainbow and Fluttershy parted ways; Rainbow Dash needing to catch up on some weather chores and Fluttershy having to tend to her animal friends. Fluttershy went about her usual job happier then ever. Singing and humming while all of her critters continued to move around and about her. After she finished feeding and watering all of the animals she decided she'd go inside and relax a little. It would be awhile until she and Rainbow Dash could spend time together, after all. She stepped into her main room and carefully shut her door behind her. She trotted towards the throw pillow she had laying on the couch nearby and slowly lay herself down on it.

The throw pillow had amazing stitching and a soft silk cover. It was gentle, clean, and just the right size for her. The pillow had been a gift from Rarity; Rarity had seen how coarse and rough her couch was, and how it had no decorations of any sort. Rarity, being the fashion fanatic she was, insisted on making Fluttershy a new throw pillow to lay on. Fluttershy giggled when thinking of how obsessive Rarity could be.

Thinking about the memory made Fluttershy think about the rest of her friends; could what she and Dashie had been doing be so bad? Fluttershy couldn't bear the thought of loosing all of her friends like that. Even worse, what if they tried to separate her and Dashie? What if she could never see her blue colored Pegasus friend again? Her whole body shuddered at the thought as she eased down onto the pillow and closed her eyes.
----------------------------------

Meanwhile Rainbow Dash was busy with her weather chores; she had to clear the skies, melt a few patches of snow, and break some ice. It was so much work to do and she could barely focus on any of it. She spent time away from the other weather Pegasi, avoiding contact with any of them as she reluctantly went from cloud to cloud kicking each one out. Her mind was elsewhere at the moment, all she felt like doing right now was spending time with Fluttershy.

After awhile Rainbow was tired and exhausted, she had left one small cloud for herself to nap on once she was finished; as she neared the location of her cloud, she discovered another Pegasus had removed it when she was gone. Rainbow silently cursed under her breath, where was she going to nap now? She sighed and decided she might as well pay Fluttershy a visit since she was all done. She leapt up into the sky and started to soar towards her shy friend's house.

Fluttershy was sleeping when she had arrived; she knocked on the door once more, slowly getting irritated at the lack of response. Rainbow sighed and started to look for another way in; she flew to several different windows, all locked and closed. Finally, she found an open window which coincidentally also happened to by the one leading to Fluttershy's Bedroom. Rainbow carefully hovered herself in and closed the window behind her.

Dashie moved slowly downstairs to find a sleeping Fluttershy on the couch. She sighed and moved over to the peaceful Pegasus, being careful with her steps. She sat down on the couch and laid her head on her hooves.
"Ouch, this thing is way too rough, why does Fluttershy even keep it around" She muttered to herself as she got up off the couch and looked around for some surface softer for her to lay on. The only one she found to be suitable with a nice, hoof stitched, silk throw pillow; the same one Fluttershy was sleeping on.

"I hope she doesn't mind…" Rainbow Dash said sighing. She carefully laid herself on the empty part of the pillow next to Fluttershy. 'Wow, this thing is so soft' she thought to herself as she rested her head on her hooves.

Fluttershy yawned and woke up, stretching her arms out until she saw Rainbow Dash next to her. Fluttershy squeaked and fell off of the couch, hitting the floor.

"Huh? What?" Rainbow mumbled as the crash slowly woke her up as well.

"W-w-w-when did you get here Dashie? I mean, I-it's not that I don't mind having you here and all but…" Fluttershy tried to squeak out

"Oh, well, I wanted to visit but you wouldn't respond when I knocked on your door; so I looked to see if you had any open windows and snuck in" Rainbow replied in her usual, carefree tone.

Fluttershy lightly sighed and got herself up "That doesn't explain why you were sleeping next to me though." She replied curiously. Rainbow Dash blushed and looked to the side.

"What's wrong with a mare lying next to her best friend on a pillow" she said with a slight laugh. Fluttershy started giggling as well as she smiled at Rainbow. She walked over and laid herself down on the pillow again, resting her tail on Rainbow's back. Rainbow nervously laughed and lightly licked Fluttershy's nose. Fluttershy blushed and smiled as she and Dashie looked into each others eyes.

"You know what I love most about this?" Rainbow asked smiling.

"W-what's that?" Fluttershy whispered.

"That you and I are here, together, spending time" Rainbow spoke quietly as she leaned in to slightly kiss Fluttershy. Fluttershy flushed even more as she could feel her wings involuntarily spreading out again; she closed her eyes and was terribly red.

"How bout we get some shut eye, okay?" Rainbow asked while yawning. Fluttershy said nothing, her wings still as far out as they could be; she felt herself only able to look into the rainbow maned Pegasus's eyes. Before another word was said Dashie laid her head on the pillow and shortly began to snore.

Fluttershy sat there for hours, lost in thought. It had only been a day since the night under the stars with Dashie; but every minute they seemed to be growing deeper and deeper. They surely weren't just friends anymore, at the least they had to be friends with benefits by now. Fluttershy still couldn't explain to herself the warm feeling that seemed to surge through her very being every time she was close to the cyan colored pony. Why would anypony ever want to take this away from her? This…This…This love she felt; could it really be love she felt? She tried to deny it as she looked upon the sleeping pony. Her beautiful rainbow mane, her stunning cutie mark, and the way she could be so aggressive yet so sweet.

Fluttershy violently shook her head; what in the world was she thinking? It was so wrong, yet so completely right at the same time.

"Oh, this is so confusing!" she said with frustration; she laid her head down and closed her eyes. If anything, a little sleep would help her.
----------------------
Fluttershy was up bright and early the next morning, even before Rainbow Dash had risen. She got up and began her usual routine of feeding all of the animals their breakfast. She gave the birds worms, chopped up some carrots for Angel, and gave leftovers to the raccoons. She was in the middle of handing the Badgers under the dock fish when her thoughts got the best of her again. What was she going to do about the state of Rainbow's and her friendship? She couldn't end what was going on, she just couldn't. But she didn't know if there was a full fledged relationship in store at some point either.

"Hey Fluttershy" somepony said behind her; the voice made Fluttershy jump back and yelp. It belonged to her friend, Twilight Sparkle, who now stood in front of her.

"I'm sorry, did I startle you?" Twilight asked with a hint of concern in her voice.

"N-no, it's quite alright Twilight, I was just feeding my animal friends and I had something on my mind an-"

"What were you thinking about?" Twilight cut her off

"Oh! Nothing, I mean, it wasn't nothing, just nothing important. Well, I mean it was something important but…" Fluttershy sighed and gave up trying to finish the sentence; why did she have to be such a horrible liar?

"Well…okay… I just came by to see if you've seen Rainbow Dash anywhere, I need her for something." Twilight sounded a bit impatient.

"Um…well… what do you need her for? I mean, that is if you don't mind telling me" Fluttershy shyly responded.

"Oh, well I need some clouds trapped in this bottle for an experiment I'm running" she said while lifting a bottle out of her bag.

"Oh… I um…I can handle that for you if it's not too much trouble" Fluttershy didn't want her to find out where Rainbow Dash actually was.

"No…I'd rather have Rainbow Dash do it…Do you know where she is?" Twilight asked while eyeing Fluttershy. Fluttershy's mind went wild; she had to think of something, something quick!

"Um…she…um…S-She's off taking care of her weather jobs!" Fluttershy lied while giving a nod to Twilight to look like she was being truthful.

"Alright… Well, I'll see you later on tonight, right?" Twilight continued to prod

"Um…yes! I mean, what's tonight?" Fluttershy blankly asked

"Your birthday party…" Twilight was sounding more and more impatient by the moment. How could Fluttershy had forgotten about her birthday today!? She was supposed to show up at Sugar Cube Corner for her party this evening! What was she going to do; Rainbow was going to be there with her too! She'd be a nervous mess; what if she gave something away?

"Hello…?" Twilight's tone told Fluttershy she had gone too long without a response.

"Oh, um, yes. I'll see you tonight" Fluttershy hastily spoke.

"Okay then, Bye" Twilight turned around and walked away. Fluttershy took a deep breath and sighed in relief; that was close. She went back into her cottage and closed the door behind her. To her surprise, Rainbow Dash actually had left; maybe she did need to do her weather chores.

Fluttershy took this to her advantage as she lay down on the couch. She had to come up with some way to survive the party tonight without looking like a total fool; But how…?

Chapter 3
-------------------
Although the sun was slowly setting, it was bright inside of Sugar Cube Corner; "Equestria's Premiere Sweet Shop". Inside there were party decorations and games galore; Streamers, Balloons, Confetti, Pin the tail on the pony, and a big, yellow cake. Pinkie Pie was busy bouncing around and blowing her party whistle, Twilight was reading a book, and Rarity and Applejack were sitting at a table.

"Pinkie Pie; have you seen Fluttershy or Rainbow Dash yet?" Twilight asked curiously. At the sound of her name the pink pony stopped and spit out the whistle. She then put her hoof to her chin and tried to think back.

"Hmmmmmm can't say that I have Twilight" Pinkie Pie responded with little care as she went back to bouncing around the room. Twilight sighed and facehooved at her friend's random and uncaring behavior.

"Well we simply can't start the party without at least Fluttershy here" Rarity insisted "Speaking of which, why isn't she here Twilight? Didn't you say you reminded her?" She continued.

"Yes, I did Rarity, why would-" Twilight was sounding annoyed before she got cutoff by a door slamming open. Even Pinkie Pie stopped her bouncing to see who had arrived.

"I'm here, sorry everypony, I was late and um…" Fluttershy tried to finish before being rudely interrupted by Pinkie Pie.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLUTTERSHY! Do you want cupcakes? Because I made cupcakes and there's enough for everypony! Oh, and you have presents from all of us and there's streamers and Pin the Tail on the Pony and a yummy, yummy cake!" Pinkie Pie screamed ecstatically as she blew her whistle in Fluttershy's face, it was clear that she already had eaten more than enough sugary foods for the night.

"Um, thanks Pinkie Pie but not right now, I don-"

"Oh and have you seen Rainbow Dash anywhere because we haven't seen her and last Twilight told me you said that she had some weather chores and a party isn't a party unless everypony invited is-" Pinkie tried to continue before Twilight put a hoof over her mouth.

"What she's trying to say is Happy Birthday Fluttershy" Twilight said with a smile on her face. Fluttershy looked from pony to pony who all seemed to by smiling back at her; Everypony besides Rainbow Dash, who wasn't anywhere to be seen.

"Um…Where's Dashie?" Fluttershy asked without even thanking Twilight for stopping the cotton candy maned pony's rant.

"Dashie? Why would you ever use a pet name like that for her?" Rarity snobbishly inquired. Oh no; did she just give something away. She had to say something quick, everypony was staring at her!

"Oh, um, I-I, um, I" Fluttershy tried to squeak out.

"Well it doesn't matter, what matters is that you're here" Applejack said nicely. 'Thank Celestia she cut me off!' Fluttershy thought to herself as she sighed in relief. But she also dipped her ears back, why wasn't Dashie there? Had she forgotten about it?

"What's wrong Fluttershy?" Twilight asked with concern. Fluttershy instantly perked up, she couldn't give anything away tonight; even if Dashie's absence made her sad.

"Oh, um, nothing, nothing at all" Fluttershy tried to sound happy as she said it, do to everypony's, well everypony's besides Pinkie Pie's worried face it looked like it hadn't worked.

"Well? What are we waiting for everypony? Let's get this party started!" Pinkie enthusiastically shouted as she jumped over to the boom box and pressed the 'Play' button.

-----------------------------

Rainbow Dash yawned as she felt the sun's warm glow on her back; it was the perfect time and place for a nap. She sat upon a cloud and was looking around the whole city.

"Wow, Ponyville sure is beautiful this time of day" she spoke to herself as she saw the sun setting on every house and building in the town. They were all dark by this time; well, all except for Sugar Cube Corner. Which was odd, Sugar Cube Corner usually closed at 6 pm every night, and it was an hour past that.

Rainbow Dash brushed it off as she laid her head on the cloud and closed her eyes. 'Pinkie Pie and the cakes must be doing one of their all night Saturday specials' she thought. But…it was Wednesday, not Saturday…

Rainbow instantly bolted up as panic rushed to her head; it was Fluttershy's birthday! She took off from the cloud and began flying to the lit up sweet shop.

"I hope I'm not too late!" she said worriedly before stopping in her tracks; she hadn't gotten a gift either! How was she going to look showing up at the party being the only pony without a gift! Rainbow turned all around, every shop was closed by now, what was she going to do?

She continued to turn and turn as she rubbed her head. Then something caught her eye, a Rose! Fluttershy would love a rose! She soared down to it and was about to pick it before something else came to mind; how was it going to look when she gave Fluttershy a rose…? She tried to think of something else she could give Fluttershy as she looked to the sky. The sun was almost down and it was getting dark; what if she missed the party completely! She sighed reluctantly and picked the rose, it would have to do.

She began to fly off towards Sugar Cube Corner; hopefully she would make it in time.

-------------------------

Music blared loudly as everypony was having fun playing games, eating cake, and dancing. Everypony but Fluttershy, though she tried her best to seem happy, she couldn't seem to keep it up with Dashie being gone. Why should it even matter that she was gone? Why did it make Fluttershy feel like something was missing?

Fluttershy was sitting at a table, lightly poking a piece of cake. She sighed and hoped that before the night was out that Dashie could make it. She rested her head on her hooves and continued to stare at the doorway. Applejack stopped dancing and came over to her table.

"What's wrong sugar cube? You've been actin' sad all night" she sounded worried for her friends well being.

"um… I don't want to talk about it…" Fluttershy gave up the attempt to sound happy.

"Common, please tell us, we can't bare to see you like this" Applejack persisted

"I…I can't" Fluttershy barely whispered. Applejack sighed and sat down next to her. Pinkie Pie bounced on over, followed by Twilight and Rarity.

"Say something, anything, please" Twilight begged.

"We're very worried dear" Rarity said softly.

"Yeah! Quit being a party pooper and say something!" Pinkie Pie yelled annoyed. The other three ponies gave her a quick dagger eye glance before turning their attention back to Fluttershy.

"Does it have to do with Rainbow Dash not bein' here?" Applejack leaned in and asked.

"I-I-I-I don't want to say" Fluttershy squeaked, averting her eyes from the other ponies.

"Well how are we goin' to know what to do if you won't tell us anything" Applejack didn't let up. Fluttershy didn't want to speak about Rainbow; she was afraid she'd give it away about what's been happening between them.

"Please" all four ponies asked in unison while looking at their shy friend. Fluttershy's heart was pounding as she lowered her face partially below the table. She was shaking now, it was too much pressure; she had to go, she couldn't stay here.

"I-I-I have to leave, I'm sorry" Fluttershy managed to say; she didn't wait for another response as she began to run away.

"Fluttershy wait!" Twilight shouted behind her. Fluttershy didn't listen as she bolted for the door. She ran outside and continued running down the street as she could hear her friends calling her name from behind.

---------------------------------------

Rainbow Dash crashed into Sugar Cube Corner at an immense speed.

"Where's Fluttershy? Am I late?" She hastily asked

"Oh, you're late alright" Twilight said harshly. She looked at all of her friends, they were not happy in the slightest.

"Did I miss it?" Rainbow Dash asked with pain in her voice. They all nodded and gave her death stares

"Why weren't you here? Fluttershy practically ran off when we asked her what was makin' her so sad; and it turns out that somethin' was you're absence" Applejack shot at her.

"Yea, you stupid big Meanie Pants!" Pinkie Pie shouted. Rainbow Dash felt awful, Fluttershy must be devastated. She started to back out.

"And where do you think you're going?" Rarity spat.

"I have to make this right" Rainbow Dash said as she ran out the door and flew off in pursuit of Fluttershy.

"Should we follow em'?" Applejack turned to twilight and asked. Twilight thought for a moment and shook her head in disagreement.

"We'll let them sort it out themselves" Twilight said lightly.

"Did anypony else find it suspicious how worried they seem to be about each other recently?" Rarity asked curiously. All the ponies stopped and thought for a bit; they saw it now too.

"Yeah, that is quite odd… Isn't it" Twilight said thoughtfully.
------------------------------
Fluttershy was running down the street towards her cottage, tears flying from her eyes; she didn't even want to face her friends tomorrow, she just wanted to be alone. Her clearing would be the perfect place to be right now; nopony would ever bother her there. She reached the clearing, tears still forming in her eyes as she sat down on the grass and cried. Tonight had been horrible; not only would her friends not let up, but the pony she cared most for didn't even bother to make it. Why did she care so much about her cyan colored friend?

Rainbow Dash flew all over town, checking everywhere for where Fluttershy could be. She checked her cottage, her garden, the meadow, the park. She couldn't find her anywhere! Rainbow flew down to the street and checked all directions; she then hung her head in shame. How could she be such a horrible pony as to forget her best friend's birthday? She sighed and laid on the park bench; she looked to the stars and longed to be with the shy Pegasus.

"If only I could be I could be with her in that clearing again; that was such a magical night" she sighed to herself as she rested her head on the bench. She closed her eyes when it hit her, the clearing! Fluttershy had to be there! She wasted no time as she took off and started flying towards the forest.
-------------


Rainbow ran through the forest breaking twigs and scattering leaves; she was uncaring of whatever sounds her hooves made. Eventually she reached the small area, and sitting there on the grass in front of her was none other than Fluttershy. Her mane was a mess, and it was obvious she had been crying. Rainbow Dash carefully trotted up behind her.

"Fluttershy?" she spoke softly. At the sound of her name Fluttershy spun around and saw her friend standing a few inches from her. Joy swelled through her heart as she looked up to the worried Pegasus.

"D-D-Dashie?" Fluttershy spoke between tears. Rainbow Dash nodded as she helped Fluttershy up off the ground.

"I'm so sorry Fluttershy; you have no idea how bad I feel." Rainbow spoke, tearing up herself. Fluttershy didn't care, she was just happy to see her.

"I-I-I forgive you" Fluttershy said in a small voice. Rainbow Dash smiled and remembered the rose she had gotten for her.

"I… I got you something" She said as she pulled the rose out from her mane. Fluttershy felt her heart skip a beat looking upon the wonderful specimen. She blushed and smiled back at Dashie.

"I-it's perfect… I love it" Fluttershy said breathlessly. Rainbow Dash walked over and placed the rose in her friend's mane. Fluttershy then tackle hugged her to the ground and held on tight. Dashie blushed and returned the hug; she could feel her heart beating out of control now. Fluttershy could feel it too, along with hers as she retracted from the hug and looked into Rainbow's eyes. Maybe it was love she felt; maybe she had fallen for her best friend.

Fluttershy moved forward and kissed Rainbow Dash deeply, closing her eyes. Rainbow nearly had a heart attack as she returned the kiss and held it for as long as she could. After awhile both of them pulled back, furiously blushing. Fluttershy laid her head upon Rainbow's chest; Rainbow Dash could feel her heart explode as she wrapped her hooves around her shy friend's back.

"Fluttershy?" Rainbow Dash asked as if she wanted to tell her something.

"Yes?"

"I…" Rainbow Dash seemed hesitant to say what was on her mind.

"Hmmm?"  Fluttershy asked lightly

"I…Love you…" Rainbow Dash instantly regretted it; what if she got rejected again? Fluttershy was redder than an apple as she thought on her friend's words. Did she love Dashie? She could only think the answer to be yes; there was no other way to explain what she was feeling towards the rainbow maned Pegasus.

"I-I-I lo" Fluttershy could barely speak; she was trying to say it back but the words wouldn't leave her mouth.

"What was that?" Rainbow Dash started to listen closely

"I-I-I-I" Fluttershy's voice started to drop

"I can't hear you" Rainbow tried to be gentle with her. Fluttershy closed her eyes and took a deep breath.

"I love you too!" She blurted out as she felt the warm feeling surge through her again; but this time it was different, stronger, more so than it had ever been before. Rainbow Dash blushed as she looked into the yellow pony's eyes; she smiled and laid back on the grass, looking to the sky. Fluttershy laid back down on Dashie too as she felt her wings spread out again; but this time she didn't mind it, this time it made her happy.

All of the presents in the world couldn't compare to this joy she felt right now, here with Rainbow.  Nothing mattered right now, not even what everypony was thinking about her running off like she had. She closed her eyes and squeezed Dashie tighter; hoping this would never end.

She had never felt anything like this in her life; these rapid heart beats, the warm feeling, how being around the cyan colored pony made her feel stronger, like she could take on anything.

There was no question about it; this had been her best birthday ever.

MLP: Equestrian Shinobi - Episode 1: "The New Pony in Town"

Night finally fell over the town of Ponyville and in the local library, Twilight Sparkle just put Spike to bed and was now sitting on her floor rug and catching up on a little reading by candlelight before heading to bed herself. She was in the middle of an adventure-romance novel about a daring adventurer rescuing a damsel in distress while trying to solve the riddle of an ancient civilization which could unlock a lost treasure. Twilight wasn't usually a fan of these kinds of stories but this one was a real page-turner.
Her eyes were intently glued to the words or they would have been if Twilight hadn't suddenly jerked her head up and found her horn glowing brightly.
"What in the-?" she said then she disappeared in a flash of purple light and reappeared at her highest balcony where she had a telescope set up.
She quickly got a bearing of her situation, "That never happened to me before."
Her attention was turned to an extraordinary sight in the night sky: a small ball of yellow light falling from the sky and heading straight for the Everfree Forest. Without a moment to spare, Twilight sped over to the telescope to get a better look at the anomaly but she was too late since the yellow ball of light vanished behind the treetops.
"What was that? And why did my horn react like that?"

The morning sun cast its light over the entire Everfree Forest and it's newest guest whose sleep had reached its end as the day began. Naruto sat up with a groan as his vision came back into focus just in time for him to see that he was surrounded my large amounts of various foliage.
"Ugh . . ." said Naruto as he reached up to rub the top of his head, "damn. What the hell just hit me?"
He rose to his feet and walked off in a random direction in the hopes of finding a way out of this forest and he was still a bit dazed to realize that he was walking on all fours. Naruto walked for about three minutes when the sound of rushing water filled his ears then he followed the sound for at least twenty feet and he came upon the sight of a small stream. Time was not wasted as Naruto rushed over to the water's edge and took a drink of cool water. The cold temperature of the liquid was just the shock his senses needed for them to fully wake up.
Naruto pulled his head back and caught a sight of a orange horse with a blond mane and blue eyes.
He said, "Hey there, horsey. What're you doing in the water?"
He reached out to give the horse a gentle pet but instead of his hand, he pulled out a orange hoof and that made him fall on his butt in shock. He quickly looked over his entire body and saw he was covered in orange fur, his hands and feet were replaced with hooves, he had a blond-colored tail, and a mark similar to his clan's symbol on his hind flank then rushed back to the stream and saw his reflection on the water since now he knows it's himself.
Naruto reached up to his head and fiddled with his ear, "How did this happen?"
The answer quickly hit him like ton of bricks, "The jutsu! It changes the user into a local native and the natives of this world are . . . horses?"
He looked at his fingerless front hooves and gained a sad expression, "So I can't use jutsu anymore?"
Then he put in his hooves together then felt a familiar surge of energy throughout his body and said the one thing he could out of instinct, "Shadow Clone Jutsu!"
White smoke exploded in the area and once it cleared, about a hundred more clones of Naruto could be seen. The real Naruto saw this and exploded in happiness then dispelled his clones.

The shinobi-now-turned-pony was able to find a dirt path which led him out of the forest and along the way, he was contemplating his most recent and joyful discovery.
"At least I can still use my jutsu. That gives me an edge in this world but I still wanna know where the heck I am," said Naruto thinking out loud.
He was quickly pulled from his thoughts as he gazed upon the sight of a large rural-looking town only a few miles away from him.
"Maybe there's something in that town that can help," he hoped then burst into a gallop towards his destination but slowed down as he reached the outskirts and entered the town itself.
As he strolled on through, Naruto could see many other horses of colors and they all had various markings on their hind flanks; he could also see that most of these equines were female because of their famine eyelashes.
'So this place is inhabited by only horses? What kind of world did I land in?' thought Naruto.
His train of thought was derailed by the sound of giggling to his right; he turned to find three mares gazing at him, fluttering their eyelashes and giggling at him. One mare was light magenta with a lime green mane and two daises on her flank, the second mare was pink with a blond mane occupied by a lily and three lilies on her flank, and the third was a cream color with a burgundy mane and a rose on her flank.; the three were standing in front of some sort of plant shop.
"Hi there," said the pink pony, waving at him.
'The horses talk?! Wow, this place is just fool of surprises,' thought Naruto then he answered with a wave of his own, "Um, hi."
They just giggled like giddy school girls.
'Maybe these three can help,' he thought as he strolled over to them, "Excuse me ladies, but could you tell me where I am? I'm new to the area."
"You seriously don't know where you are?" said the lime green-maned mare.
Naruto answered with a head shake as he halted before them.
The rose-flanked mare answered, "You're in Ponyville."
'Ponyville, huh?' he thought.
"So, what's a pony as cute as you doing around here?" the blonde pony asked flirtatiously.
'I'm a PONY?! That's just what my pride needed - a swift kick in the crotch. And did she just say I'm cute?' then he answered by using one of a shinobi's greatest aspects, "I was just doing a little traveling. You know, seeing the world and trekking great distances but now I feel it's time for me to settle down somewhere and this place seems really nice to me. Is there anything else you tell me about . . . Ponyville?"
The green-maned pony spoke, "If it's info you're wanting, there's a library just down the street and around the corner from here."
He glanced down the spoken way then turned back to her, "Oh thanks very much, Miss . . ."
"Oh I'm Daisy," she turned to the blond, "this is Lily," then looked at the third pony, "and that's Rose."
"Naruto Uzumaki, nice to meet ya. And thanks again," he then made his down the street.
"See you around, Naruto!" called out Rose.
"Oh you will!" he called back then he turned the corner.
Once they say that the orange pony was gone, the three mares quickly huddled together.
"Oh my Celestia, did you see him?" asked Daisy.
"I know! Wasn't he totally cute?" squealed Lily.
"I think you made that kinda obvious," said Rose.
"I sure hope he sticks around. He's quite a hottie," said Daisy.

The second he rounded the corner, Naruto was given the sight of a huge tree that looked like it doubled as a building. He started to think that this couldn't be the library but the thought was pushed from his head when he spotted the sign with a picture of an open book standing in front of the place; the stallion made his way towards the door and hoping this place had anything that can help him.

At the same time, Twilight Sparkle and her assistant Spike were having a serious discussion down in the library as the unicorn was looking through an astronomy reference guide in hopes of figuring out what she saw last night.
"You sure it wasn't just a falling star?" asked Spike.
"My horn doesn't react to regular falling stars, Spike. I'm telling you it was something totally different," retorted Twilight.
"Could it just have been your imagination?"
"No Spike, it wasn't my imagination! It was real."
"You sure it had something to do with this?" Twilight quickly turned to see Spike holding the novel she was reading last night."
"What does that have to do with what I saw?"
"It concludes that it was just your imagination. Stories like this are meant to rile up anypony who reads them. Mostly lonely young mares."
"For the last time Spike, it wasn't my imagination! My horn doesn't give that strong of a reaction to my emotions. And I still say that falling star had something to do with it, I just can't explain why."
"Maybe you should just give it rest. You'll just drive yourself crazy trying to figure it out. Remember trying explain Pinkie's Pinkie Sense?"
Twilight looked up from her book and gave sigh, "Maybe you're right. What I need is a good distraction but what?"
The door suddenly opened and walked in a blond-maned orange stallion who went by the name of Naruto Uzumaki who spoke, "Excuse me? Can someone help me?"
'The perfect distraction: helping out a pony,' thought as she closed the book and went over to this newcomer then she asked, "Yes, how can I help you?"
Naruto attention was quickly drawn to this lavender unicorn.
'A unicorn? Whoa! What the little girls back home would do if hey found out they were real,' thought Naruto but quickly answered, "I'm new to the area and was hoping to find out more about this town."
"Well, you came to the right place. I'm Twilight Sparkle," she introduced herself then turned to the baby dragon behind her, "this is my assistant Spike. And well be more them happy to help you."
Upon seeing Spike, Naruto only thought of one thing, 'There are dragons here? Dragons exist in this world and I get stuck as a PONY!? That's so unfair!'
He spoke with his trademark smile, "Name's Naruto Uzumaki. Nice to meet you."
"Likewise. Say if you're new around here, I could give you a personal tour of Ponyville. I'm sure a walk through the town would help you in getting a good lay of the land," Twilight suggested.
"Sounds perfect and a tour would really help," answered Naruto.
"Great," she turned back to Spike, "Spike, think you can handle the library until I get back?"
"No worries. Go on," the baby dragon said with confidence.
"Okay," Twilight looked back at the orange stallion, "shall we?"
Naruto stepped to his left, "After you, m'lady."
The unicorn walked outside and giggled, "Such a gentlecolt."
The 'gentlecolt' then followed her out.
Once the ponies left, Spike's attention was brought back to the novel in his claws, "Never thought Twilight would become one of those lonely young mares."

During the tour, Twilight Sparkle showed Naruto the various stores and sights and Naruto was able to make out the citizens of Ponyville; there were many other unicorns like Twilight and regular ponies like himself and the three mares he met earlier but what really got him were the winged ponies flying in the sky above.
"So Naruto, what do you think of Ponyville so far?" asked Twilight.
Proving he was paying attention, Naruto answered, "It's pretty nice here."
"Good to hear. Now just ahead of us is the most prominent farm in all of Ponyville - Sweet Apple Acres," Twilight announced, showing Naruto the sight of farm surround by acres of . . . well, apple trees.
The orange stallion's jaw dropped in shock and he said, "Wow. That's a whole lot of apples."
"You better believe it. One of my friends lives here. C'mon, I'll introduce you if she's home," Twilight then trotted ahead with Naruto following close behind.
They entered the barnyard to hear the sounds of thumping on wood coming from their left. They saw the earth pony named Applejack: a blond-maned, freckled-faced, orange pony wearing a cowboy and with three apples as her cutie mark also one of Twilight's best friends; she was just finishing up her chores for today since the last thing to do was buck a few trees and take the apples into the barn.
"There she is," said Twilight then she turned to Naruto, "Come on. You just have to meet her."
She then lead the way over to the bucking pony and called out, "Applejack!"
The farmer pony stopped what she was doing and took notice of her unicorn friend, "Howdy Twilight! Whatchu doing around these parts?"
Twilight stopped before her, "I'm showing a new friend around Ponyville," she stepped aside to reveal Naruto, "Applejack, this is Naruto Uzumaki. Naruto, meet Applejack."
The two orange ponies approached each other and Applejack held out her front right hoof, "Well, howdy-do, Naruto. Put 'er there."
This is when Naruto made his first mistake: he gave Applejack his own right hoof; the second he did, she shook it wildly in an overly-friendly manner so much that his whole body felt it.
"Any friend of Twilight is a friend of mine," she said releasing him.
The stallion quickly got over the 'aftershock' and said, "Likewise."
Twilight giggled a little since the same thing happened to her when she first met Applejack. Naruto spoke again, "So whatcha you doing there, Applejack?"
"Just a little applebuckin' is all," she answered,
"Applebucking? What's that?"
"You don't know what applebuckin' is?"
He just shook his head then Twilight said, "Why don't you show him, Applejack?"
Applejack nodded in agreement, "Can do," she then turned to Naruto, "You see Naruto, applebuckin' is when a pony kicks an apple tree," which she did and got her desired results of apples falling into the buckets below, "to make the apples off so she can harvest and store them."
The orange stallion was somewhat impressed, "That's it?"
"That's it. Why don't y'all give it a try?" Applejack motioned to the tree beside her which had buckets all ready to receive apples.
"Go on, Naruto," encouraged Twilight.
Seeing no harm in it, the shinobi-turned-pony strolled on over to the tree in question, turned around so that his tail was facing it, and kicked the trunk with both hind legs but all that did was cause the apples to shake.
"Try a little harder," said Applejack.
He took her advice and kicked harder; the results turned out to be a little too good.  Instead of the apples falling in the buckets, the apples fell right on top of him and buried him. The two mares quickly to his aide but he was able to dig himself.
"Applebucking is a lot more dangerous than I thought," he said as he rubbed his head.

After that hazardous moment, Naruto and Twilight volunteered to help Applejack store the apples which she was more than happy to let them do; she even agreed to join them on their tour. They were now currently in the middle of the town square where the mares were showing Naruto the central pavilion.
"So Naruto, whatchu think of Ponyville so far?" asked Applejack.
"It's a whole lot different from MY hometown. Ponyville's a lot more quiet," Naruto answered.
The so-called quiet was interrupted by the sound of a gust above their heads.
"Never mind," he said snickering.
The three looked to the sky to see winged blue pony, with a rainbow mane and tail along with a cloud and rainbow-lightning bolt cutie mark, soaring in the sky and performing aerial acrobatics.
"Who's that?" asked Naruto.
"That's Rainbow Dash, one of our friends. I bet she'd like to meet you," said AJ.
"Rainbow!" shouted Twilight and was able to catch the pegasus' attention, "Come down here."
Rainbow Dash landed on the ground and greeted them, "Hey guys. What's up?"
"Nothin' much. Just showin' our new friend around," said Applejack then Naruto walked out from behind them.
"Rainbow Dash, meet our new friend Naruto Uzumaki. Naruto, this is -" Twilight trying to get the introductions on the way but Dash interrupted her, "Rainbow Dash, the greatest flyer in all of Equestria and the most awesome pegasus in Ponyville."
Twilight and Applejack rolled their eyes at Rainbow's bragging as Naruto thought with a smirk, 'And Sakura said I had a big ego. And a winged pony is a called a pegasus, huh? I'd better remember that.'
Then he spoke, "Saw you up there with those moves of yours. I can see why you're the greatest flyer."
Rainbow gained a look of pride, "So true."
Naruto decided to turn the tables, "And you were the most awesome in Ponyville."
Twilight and Applejack turned to him, looking surprised as Rainbow's pride turned to anger then said, "What did you say?"
It was the stallion's turn to become full of pride which manifested as another smirk accompanied with a pose, "You see, I was the most awesome . . . pony back home. My speed was unmatched by any who dared to challenge me."
That was sorta true since for the past two years, Naruto trained himself to enhance his speed and it worked. The only who could possibly beat him in terms of speed was Might Gai.
Dash's competitive nature kicked in as she jumped into the air and hovered right in front of his face, "Is that so? I can easily speed past anypony and that includes you, pal."
Naruto brought face closer and got his game face on, "You think so? Then I see a race in our future, a speed race. I can see it now - it begins at dawn as all of Ponyville comes to witness the moment of greatness. You and I at the starting line that doubles as the finishing line then we take off at the sound of the starting bell. Our hearts pound and our brows sweat as we desperately try to keep up with each other during the three huge laps around Ponyville or whatever our course will be. And as the final stretch comes up, we are giving it all we got and then some as the finish line comes into view. We are neck and neck then the winner is decided in a super-close photo finish. How does that sound?"
Dash looked him square in the eye, "That sounds . . . . AWESOME!" she then flew down next to him and put an arm around him, "Naruto, you and me are gonna get along just fine."
Naruto's response was a smile.

True to her word, Rainbow Dash and Naruto got along as she joined the tour to show him around Ponyville and talk about this race of theirs.
"How about we include some caverns or canyons in our race?" Rainbow Dash offered her suggestion to Naruto.
"Maybe filled with monstrous creatures that could eat us in a single bite?" suggested Naruto.
"Then we have to definitely included a trek through the Everfree Forest," said Dash.
Twilight and Applejack just giggled on how much those two were getting along so well after that rocky first impression.
Unfortunately, the lavender unicorn had to interrupt, "Anyway Naruto, we've arrived at our newest destination. Welcome to the Carousel Boutique."
Naruto looked ahead his gaze became focused on the building before him; it seemed to be true to its name since it looked like it had aspects of a carousel built into it as well as looking like one of those feminine clothing stores that Ino would drag him into back in Konoha.
"I'm guessing some kind of dress store?" asked Naruto.
"Yup and all run by our friend, Rarity," said Applejack.
"Just a quick warning before you meet her," said Rainbow Dash, "Rarity's one of those prim and proper ponies so be careful how you interact with her or else she'll label you as uncivilized or something."
"Now come on Dash. Rarity is not that bad," said Twilight then the other two mares looked at her with those 'who-are-you-kidding' faces.
"Okay maybe she can be little uptight sometimes," Twilight said rephrasing her answer.
"Maybe we oughta put a bow tie on Naruto to spiffy him up a little," said Applejack.
"And top hat so that he could get past the door," said Dash.
Naruto lowered into crouch, turned around, and started crawling away, "On second thought, I don't wanna meet this Rarity of yours."
He didn't get too far since Applejack stepped on his tail to trap him then Twilight said, "Don't be that way, Naruto. I'm sure Rarity will like you."
He looked back at her, "I don't know."
Dash spoke up, "Would it help if I said that Rarity's a babe?"
'By pony standards maybe,' thought Naruto then he got up, "I guess there's no harm in meeting her."
"Excellent. Just try to make a good impression on her," said Twilight then they all approached the door.
She then opened the door slightly and poked her head in, "Rarity! You home?"
A voice rang out in response, "Come in. I'll be right with you."
They did just that as soon as a white-gray unicorn with a styled purple mane and three diamonds on her flank appeared; this was Rarity.
"Hello girls. What can I do for yo-" Rarity's sentence was cut short the second she laid eyes on Naruto. Sparkles and colors surround as he turned his gaze upon her and she became mesmerized by his eyes which she could've have sworn that they were actual sapphires. His golden mane moving with the wind and his amber-orange coat shone like the jewel itself. The unicorn could only believe in her wildest dreams that such a dreamy-looking stallion would wander into her store; she could feel her heart pound like drum and her own eyes began to sparkle as if she were looking at a rare gemstone.
"Uuh . . . Rarity?" asked Applejack who walked up to her left side and waved her hoof in front of her friend's face, "you okay?"
The unicorn snapped out of her stupor, "What?"
"You blacked out there," said Rainbow Dash who ws hovering at Rarity's right.
The fashionista regained her composure, "I'm just fine," she then walked up to Naruto, "forgive me for not introducing myself earlier. I'm Rarity," she said batting her eyelashes and holding out her right hoof in a dainty manner.
Taking Twilight's advice, Naruto took hold of her hoof and spoke, "A pleasure to make your acquaintance, I'm Naruto Uzumaki. Thank you for making me feel so welcomed," then he bent down and kissed her hoof.
The other three mares became surprised while Rarity took back her hoof, giggling and blushing, "My my, such manners."
Naruto smiled, "A lady such as yourself deserves to be treated as such."
The comment got her giggling again; all the while, Rainbow Dash flew up next Applejack and asked, "What were we so worried about again?"
Applejack's response was a mere shrug then the both of them regrouped with Twilight. Meanwhile, Naruto's eye couldn't help but spot the dresses on the rack that Rarity had out for display; he wondered over to them to get a closer look.
"Wow. You made these Rarity?" he asked.
The unicorn in question joined him, "Yes I did. And I even designed them."
"You have some real talent. I tell you right now that many girls back in my hometown would just love these."
"Oh, you are such a flatterer," she chuckled.
He turned to her, "Flattery's not good enough for someone of your talent. I only offer you praise worthy of a lady."
Rarity's face went a bright red; Twilight, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash just watched the interaction between the two go on.
"So how do think Naruto's first impression went?" asked Dash.
"I would say that Rarity likes him," answered Twilight and Applejack nodded in agreement.

Rarity invited herself to come along on tour in hopes of being around Naruto a little longer and that was highly noticed by her friends as she stayed close to him the entire time. Right now, the girls were taking him to meet Fluttershy; they told Naruto that she is an expert in animal care which he found interesting.
They had just made it to Fluttershy's cottage when Twilight told Naruto another tidbit about her friend, "Another important thing to know about Fluttershy is that she can be quite shy so when you meet her, try to approach gently and let her warm up to naturally."
"No worries. I can do that," said Naruto.
"If that doesn't work, just do what you did with Rarity," said Dash.
"No!" shouted the unicorn in question which caused them all to stop and look at her but she quickly came up with a reason, "I mean no, that's probably not the best idea. Something so direct could push her away and make her fear Naruto instead."
Applejack and Rainbow Dash looked at each and had looks on their faces which shown that they knew Rarity's real reason for not wanting Naruto to charm Fluttershy.
"That's actually a good point, Rarity. It's better to take things slow," said Twilight.
They continued on their way towards the door which Twilight knocked on once but gained no answer.
She tried again and called out, "Fluttershy!"
They waited but still nothing happened.
"She even home?" asked Applejack.
Just then, the air was filled with the sound of singing and that give the mares a clue on where Fluttershy was.
"Sounds like she's out back. Must be feeding time for the animals," said Dash then they began trekking to the backyard.
Upon arrival, the group was greeted with the sight of a pink-haired yellow pegasus mare whose a cutie mark in the shape of three butterflies and her angelic sounding voice was creating such music as she was feeding all the animals around her; there were bunnies, birds, squirrels, chipmunks, and many other creatures waiting to be fed, eating, or already have eaten food given to them from the basket alongside her.
Naruto was instantly captivated by her voice alone then he asked the girls, "Is that her?"
"Yes. Just remember what I said," answered Twilight.
He nodded in response then everyone began the approach her as Twilight called out, "Fluttershy!"
The pegasus jumped at the voice and turned around quickly but smiled to see it was just her friends coming to visit her.
"Oh hi girls. How are-" Fluttershy started speaking but quickly stopped when she noticed the orange stallion next to Twilight and her shyness quickly took over.
They came to stopped in front of her and Twilight spoke, "Hello Fluttershy. The girls and I were just showing our friend around Ponyville and we told him he just had to meet you."
The pegasus gave a small nod then the lavender unicorn leaned towards Naruto and whispered, "Go."
He walked forwards and introduced himself, "Hi, I am Naruto Uzumaki."
" . . . . . Hi," Fluttershy squeaked as she held her head down and looked away from him.
Her friends were starting to think that this wasn't gonna go so well but Naruto spoke up, "I've heard a lot of good things about you."
"Really? Like what?" she asked quietly.
"Well, I've been told you're an expert when it comes to animal care, you're the kindest pony in Ponyville, and, from I just heard seconds ago, you have a beautiful singing voice."
Fluttershy smiled and looked up at him, "Oh well, um . . . thank you."
Naruto gave her one of his own small smiles as the others watched in amazement at seeing Fluttershy getting used to some new pony quicker than usual.
The stallions eyes roamed around only to see all the various animals, "So you take care of all these animals? All by yourself?"
"Oh yes," she said with a smile, "It fills me with so much joy to take care of animals. It's the most wonderful feeling in the world to me," her cheeks became slightly pink and her eyes looked away from him for a second, "probably sounds silly, doesn't it?"
That action got Naruto remembering about a certain someone back home then he answered, "Not at all. It just proves that you love what you and I admire that."
Fluttershy was touched by his words but her emotions were disrupted when she suddenly remembered that she hadn't finished handing out food.
"Oh my!" she said then looked back at Naruto, "Excuse me Naruto, but I have to finish feeding my animal friends."
In truth, the animals were entertaining themselves by watching the interaction between the two ponies. Fluttershy quickly reached into her basket to pull out food then Naruto spoke, "You want some help?"
"Oh no, that's alright. You don't have to," she answered but he reached a hoof into basket anyway and said, "I know but I want to. It's the least I can do since it's kind of my fault and plus, I like helping out my friends."
The second she saw his smile again, she just couldn't say no. Twilight, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and Applejack just watched the entire moment unfold before their eyes since they didn't want to do anything to disturb the two ponies . . . or at least three of them did; Rarity kept fidgeting the entire time she watched Naruto and Fluttershy.
"How did he do it?" Dash asked.
"I have no idea. Maybe Naruto is just good at making friends," answered Twilight.
"Well, I'm happy for them. It's sure nice to see Fluttershy come out of her shell so quickly. Right, Rarity?" said Applejack,
There was no need for a response since the other three could plainly see Rarity fidget. Feeding the animals took only a few minutes since the work was divided by the effort of two ponies
"Thank you for help, Naruto," said Fluttershy.
"My pleasure," he said, "hey if you're not busy, would you like to join the rest of us on the tour? You could probably tell me some stuff about Ponyville."
"Oh I don't know," she then shuffling her front hooves in the dirt.
"Please? Don't make me beg," he then lain down on his belly, lowered his head, and looked up at her with his big blue puppy dog eyes.
Even Fluttershy couldn't resist the power of the puppy dog eyes, "Ok.
He stood straight up and cheered, "Yay!"
The pegasus just giggled at his happiness.

So far Naruto has seen almost all of Ponyville thanks to his five tour guides and he had to admit that this place is a lot more relaxed than Konoha, but he was really getting used to all the peace since he didn't have to worry about an enemy ninja trying to stab him in the back or sending a kunai soaring straight for his skull. The tranquillity of this place was really doing him some good since he's been fighting for most of his life so it was nice to slow down for once. But the peace was quickly broken with a loud growl which made Twilight, Rarity, and Fluttershy jump and got Applejack and Rainbow Dash on their guard.
"What in tarnations was that?" asked Applejack.
Naruto raised his hoof and gave a guilty smile, "That was me."
They looked at him with confused looks then another growl sounded but it was much softer this time and they were able to tell it was just his stomach.
"I missed lunch," he chuckled and the mares giggled.
"Actually I could go for a little snack," said Twilight.
"Sugarcube Corner's just down the street. We could go there," suggested Dash as she pointed in that general direction.
Naruto looked that way and saw a building that looked more like a giant gingerbread house; the sight was made him hungrier.
"Sounds like a plan. Let's go," agreed Twilight then everypony strolled over to their next destination.
"Plus, Pinkie Pie is somepony you just have to meet Naruto," said Dash.
"Who?" asked Naruto.
"You'll find out soon, partner," said Applejack.
Once they reached their destination, Naruto's nostrils were assaulted with the sweet smells of baked goods and the scents only got stronger when they went inside; the stallion could tell that this place was some sort of sweets shop and bakery.
"Hey Pinkie! You around?" called out Dash.
"You called?" said a pink pony with balloons for her cutie mark appeared suddenly from behind the counter while balancing a large tray of cupcakes on her head; after he got over the shock of the sudden appearance, he concluded that this must be Pinkie Pie.
The pink mare took noticed of him, "Hi! I'm Pinkie Pie"
"I know. Name's Naruto Uzumaki. Nice to meet cha," he said.
"I've never seen you around here before so that must mean you're new because I know every pony in Ponyville and I mean every pony," she said quickly.
"Uuuuuhhh . . . yes?"
"We were just showing Naruto around when we got a bit hungry," said Dash.
"Well you girls came just at the right time because I was trying out a new recipe for double chocolate chip cupcakes then I was gonna go looking for you guys so you could try them out but since you all came to me, you saved me the trouble of looking for to try them out," said Pinkie as she placed the tray down on the counter to reveal at least a dozen cupcakes and the sight got Naruto slightly drooling, "so dig in, everypony!"
Naruto and the other five each grabbed a cupcake, said their thanks, and begun eating their baked goods; they gave off moans of satisfaction from the deliciousness of the chocolate.
"Mmm . . . Pinkie Pie, you've outdone yourself with these," complimented Twilight.
"Thanks! And help yourselves to another, there's plenty," said Pinkie as she herself took a cupcake and ate it in one bite.
"Pinkie Pie, you got some real talent for making cupcakes. It's been a long time since I had a cupcake that was anywhere near as good as this one," said Naruto.
"Aww shucks," she said blushing a little.
""That's nothin', partner. The only thing that Pinkie does better than makin' cupcakes, it's makin' parties," said Applejack munching on her cupcake.
"Really?" he asked.
"Oh absolutely. Pinkie's parties are a must to go to," said Rarity.
"Yeah and not only that but she's also a grade-A prankster," said Dash finishing her cupcake.
"Oh come one girls, you're embarrassing me," laughed Pinkie.
"A grade-A prankster, huh?" Naruto ate the rest of his cupcake then leaned against the counter, gazing at the pink pony, "I'm a prankster myself. Back home, I was known as the Prankster King."
"Really? How did you get that title?" asked Pinkie.
Knowing that he couldn't reveal the true story, he decided to cover it up a little, "Oh the usual stuff like whooping cushions on ponies' chairs, itching powder, sneezing powder, dribble glasses, and spiced-up sweets but my greatest achievement was painting the side of a mountain."
"That's an impressive feat but how's painting a mountainside considered a prank?" asked Twilight.
"Uuum . . . if you were somepony in my hometown, you would know why," he said sheepishly.
Then Pinkie Pie reached over and pulled the stallion into a hug, "I think that is so cool either way. I bet that you and I can pull pranks together! Just think how many smiles we got put on ponies' faces when it's the two of us. *gaaaaaaaasp* I just of thought of something incredible!" she made eye contact with him, "we should throw you a welcoming party! We'll invite everypony in Ponyville so that way you'll have lots of new friends! We should totally do it!" she then released him and he fell on the floor; the others just watched as they finally finished their food.
"You really don't have to, Pinkie," said Naruto as we got to his hooves.
"It's no use, pardner. Once Pinkie is set on throwin' a party, there's no point in talkin' her out of it," says Applejack.
It was true since the pink mare now jumped over the counter and started hopping in place in excitement, "We'll have balloons, streamers, and party games! This is gonna be so much FUN!"
"What's going to be much fun?"  a female voice asked and in walked Mr. and Mrs. Cake with saddlebags full of groceries.
Pinkie zipped right up next to them, "The welcoming party for Naruto, of course."
"Who?" asked Mr. Cake.
"Me," said Naruto waving at them as the looked at him, "I'm Naruto."
"We were showing him around Ponyville when we stopped by," said Twilight.
"That's great and all but back to the more important question - where are we gonna hold the party?" said Pinkie, "Ooh I know! The pavilion!"
"I don't think it's used for welcoming parties," said Dash, "how about the library? It's big enough."
"That's perfect! Now we just gotta pick some party supplies! Let's go!" shouted the excited pink pony as she hopped out the door but not before putting on her saddlebags.
"That one's just a ball of energy," said Naruto.
"You get used to it," said Mrs. Cake.
Pinkie Pie's head poked her back inside the doorway, "C'mon, you slowpokes!" then zipped back outside.
"We better go or Pinkie will really get excited," said Fluttershy.
"You're right. Let's go," said Twilight as she lead the others out and they followed, "Excuse us, Mr. and Mrs. Cake."
"Of course, dearies. You all have a nice day now," said the older mare then she called to the young stallion, "And welcome to Ponyville, Naruto!"
"Thank you. See you around!" he called.

For the rest of the day, Twilight was able to show Naruto the rest of Ponyville and the stallion paid attention to her every word  . . . though it was slightly hard to do with Rarity constantly nuzzling his cheek but luckily Applejack was there to make sure that's all she did. Pinkie Pie was busy the whole time gathering supplies and inviting various ponies to the welcoming party later tonight at the library but that only opened the floodgates of looks Naruto received of them. The guys looked at him with jealously since he was in the company of six mares and girls both gazed at him longingly and gave off envious glares at Twilight and her friends.
The tour had finally come to an end by sundown and it's end was it's beginning - the library.
"So Naruto, what do you think of Ponyville?" asked Dash as they all went inside.
"I gotta say, this place is great. I might just have to hang around here for awhile longer," he answered.
"Oh I sure hope so," said Rarity, nuzzling him once again.
Applejack rolled her eyes at her friend's persistence.
"Spike! We're back!" called Twilight then the little dragon scurried down the stairs and greeted them, "Hey guys. How'd it go?"
"It went excellently," answered Twilight then Pinkie Pie spoke up, "Yeah the tour may have been good but the party's gonna be even better!"
"Party?" asked Spike.
"Pinkie decided to throw Naruto a welcomin' party," said Applejack.
"Enough talking, let's setup for the party!" said Pinkie Pie as she opened her bag, which looked ready to burst, to take out stuff but the second she did, stuff flew all over the place and just made a mess, "see! The bags know how to get things started!"
Everyone laughed then began helping in getting the party ready by blowing up balloons, placing out food and drinks, setting up various party games, and hanging decorations. In fact, Rarity was hanging up a streamer above one of the bookshelves and she was standing on a foot tall step stool to make sure it was perfect.
"Aannnnnnd . . . viola! A perfectly placed streamer. Now that's what I can call a party decor-" For one split second, Rarity totally forgot that she was on a stool and tried to step back to admire her work only to lose her balance and fall backwards.
"Whoa!" she yelled during her descend which was interrupted by Naruto catching her; luckily, he was behind her at the time.
"Rarity! You okay?" said Fluttershy as she and the others rushed over.
"Am I okay? I'm more than okay," Rarity said happily then she looked straight at Naruto, "and it's thanks to you, Naruto. You are my hero this day."
She started nuzzling Naruto's cheek again as he said, "It wasn't really a big deal."
"Yeah Rarity, you were only a foot off the ground. Y'all would have only just got a sore tail for about only hour," said Applejack.
"But thanks to Naruto, I was spared from feeling such agonizing pain," she said dramatically then went right back to nuzzling.
Twilight giggled then took notice of the smell of smoke next to her; she looked over and found it to be Spike blowing small streams of black smoke from his nose as he growled and glared at Naruto.
Everyone went back to setting up for the party after Rarity's 'dramatic' incident and finished up in a short matter of time but Spike's demeanor towards Naruto really didn't change since he was still glaring at the stallion who was oblivious to the hateful looks. Ponies started showing up five minutes after setup was complete and the party got into full swing very quickly as the guests showed up in groups until the library was full. This gave Naruto the chance to meet some of Ponyville's citizens who seemed to take an instant like to him. Of course, Daisy, Lily, and Rose were there and they took every opportunity they got to talk to him.
Right now, Naruto was able to pull away from them and decided to hang out with Twilight and the others when Applejack spoke up, "So Naruto, you got any place to stay while you're here?"
He answered, "Not really. The last place I slept was under a tree in the forest just outside of Ponyville."
This got their attention as Fluttershy said, "You stayed in the Everfree Forest? All by yourself? Weren't you scared?"
"Not really. I'm used to sleep outside," he spoke the truth because Naruto would usually sleep outdoors when on missions, "besides I was more or less knocked out so I really didn't get the chance to be scared."
This got the girls thinking that Naruto was some homeless drifter who had no choice but to sleep outside at nights then Rarity quickly got him into a hug, "Oh poor thing. I gladly open my home to you. I even have a spare bedroom that you can use . . . right next to mine."
Spike's anger just reached an all time level but before he could do or say anything, Applejack made her voice heard, "Better yet, y'all could stay with me and my kin at our farm. We have plenty of room for one more."
Pinkie Pie popped up in front of him, "Oh I know! You can stay with me! And we can have fresh blueberry muffins in morning for breakfast and eat them together!"
That sounded pretty good to him then Rainbow Dash flew down next to him, "No way! you can stay with me. We athletes have to stick together."
"Rainbow, you live in a mansion made of clouds . . . and he's an earth pony," said Twilight.
"Oh yeah. Never mind," said the pegasus.
"You can stay here at library if you want. I have an extra bed you can use," said the unicorn.
"Or . . . if you want, you can stay with me. I have space as well," said Fluttershy.
"That's very nice of you guys to offer," answered Naruto, "but I think I'd better stay here at the library."
Rarity made no hesitation to show her disappointed face as Dash asked, "Really? How come?"
"While I found the tour of Ponyville to be informative, " he said, "I still don't know much about Equestria. I come from a land far away from here and you probably won't find it on any globe or map."
He was lucky they accepted his answer then Twilight said, "Well alright then!" she called for her Number One Assistant," Spike, can you help me get the spare bed ready for Naruto?"
The ponies were oblivious to the joyful dance he was doing from hearing the stallion's answer but quickly stopped and gave a salute," Yes ma'am!" he turned zipped over to the orange stallion and gave him an one-arm hug, "anything for my new buddy, Naruto."
"Thanks, Spike," Naruto said.
Glad to see Spike's attitude change, even though it was obvious why, Twilight and the dragon went up to the living quarters to set up the extra bed as Naruto was surround by Daisy, Rose, and Lily once again.

The party went on until before midnight when ponies started leaving. Twilight and Naruto said good night to their friends then went up to bed themselves. Naruto was greeted with the sight of the spare bed complete with a pink sheet and white pillow.
"Hope it will suffice," said the unicorn as she carried Spike to his own bed.
"It's perfect Twilight. Thank you," said Naruto as he made his way towards it.
After tucking in the baby dragon, Twilight crawled into bed as Naruto did the same.
"Good night Naruto," she said.
"Good night Twilight."
Two seconds later he said, "Twilight . . ."
"Yeah?"
"Thanks for letting me stay here."
She looked at him in a tender fashion, "You're welcome."
Then she laid her head down and fell asleep.
The orange pony soon followed her example, resting up for a new day.
Here it is at last! The premiere episode of MLP: Equestrian Shinobi!

The challenges I faced were the lingo and Applejack's dialogue.

For the next episode - you choose!

Naruto will need a job in Ponyville:
1. Work at Carousel Boutique with Rarity as a model
2. Work at Sweet Apple Acres with the Apple Family as a farmhand
3. Work at Sugarcube Corner with Pinkie Pie and the Cakes as an apprentice baker
4. Work at the library with Twilight and Spike as a junior assistant
--or--
5. Work as a ramen cook by himself

And I should warn y'all -- Naruto might get involved with some of the ponies of Ponyville.
ENJOY!
Here's the prologue for anyone who missed it - [link]

To go with the younger Celestia picture I posted a few days ago, here is a Filly Luna.

I think I did a better job colouring this one than I did the last time I drew Luna (She was too dark before). Plus filly Luna's mane isn't as complex to colour as the older one.


Anyways Enjoy.

Princess Luna was drawn freehand by me, but the Power Pony suit is heavily based on the comic design. (It is not traced.) As such, credit for the design of Luna's Power Pony suit goes to the producers of the comic: Nuhfer, Mebberson and Breckel. (These names are on the front cover, so I am assuming they are the producers of the comics. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I do not know their full names. Sorry.)

Luna's (and Cadance's) legs are a bit unusual. They are very thin at the top but rather wide at the bottom. This caused me some problems with her boots. Especially compared to Celestia, they don't quite look right. They look like they don't fit her; as though she's not wearing them, even though that are no bigger than her legs.

Royal Power Ponies: Celestia | Luna | Nightmare | Cadance | Shining. (Also see the VAtP series for more Power Ponies.)

The Princess Luna character and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic are the property of Lauren Faust and/or Hasbro and/or others.

I messed up the end of her hair during demolding so that dotted line is how the missing bit looks. I didn't get a chance to smooth down the mane and tail since the resin takes like 5 days to cure fully, but I just wanted to give you guys an idea of what S2 Luna will look like. She has sparkles on the inner blue parts; the sparkles are the same tone of blue so they only show up when the light hits them. Unfortunately they didn't photograph too well. She is a little over 6.5 inches tall from the front hoof to the top of the horn and is $180CAD.

Hi again (that was quick :D)

Here we have recolor of this by :icondanmakuman: (if you wish to see more human pony art be sure to check him out!)

This is my last recolor, previous two in the end of description. In this one I was trying to figure out a background and ended up making in look like a valentine Twilight x) Oh well at least it worked. Also, hope you are not blinded by all the brightness and stuff (i recently watch Start Trek Into Darkness, and damn they had a lot of lens light and stuff)

Anyway, hope you all like this one as well and thank you DANMAKUMAN for letting me recolor your stuff. Your are an awesome person! :)

Hello again!

Here we have recolor of this by :icondanmakuman: (if you wish to see more human pony art be sure to check him out!)

Last time when I did the recolor of Human Applejack [link] I asked if I could do a recolor of Twilight Sparkle as well and DANMAKUMAN said yes, but as you can see this is not Twilight (she is next post). The reason that I recolored Luna as well is because....um...well...Luna is best princess :P

So I hope you do not mind DANMAKUMAN, I promise it will not happen again :salute:
All in all I learned a lot from this recolor and especially few new tricks. Also I was able to make eyes resemble the original sketch, which was not the case with my Applejack recolor.

Anyway, hope you all like it :)

...But it was crystals.

Just something silly I came up with yesterday while making a more serious King Sombra sketch. It took around 5 hours from scratch.

EDIT:

You can get it without caption here if you want:

So what did Nightmare Moon/Luna do during her time on the moon?

Some say she was magically frozen in the center of it. Others believe that she lived on the surface, enjoying the darkness, made pony shaped sculptures from rocks and tended to her rock garden.

There is an old myth saying that once she spent weeks just running around all over the place, her tracks eventually forming giant letters saying "CELESTIA IS STUPID!" along with a crude caricature of Celestia's face...

Notes:
If you have been using other skins there might be a conflict with components if the previous skin did not use the "user-components" folder. In this case foobar will use the plugins inside the components folder  which might be outdated and cause errors with this skin. Remove the components folder and then reinstall foobar in portable mode. This will only perform an update and you will not lose playback stats

IF you are updating it's a good idea, but not essential, to remove any previous versions of this skin (the Zetro folder) to avoid orphaned files.

Upon first load foobar will take a few seconds to create an image cache for your library. This will only happen the first time

Make sure to look in the provided Help folder for more instructions.
