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

Dan glared down at the large pile of mixed books that were right beside him. "Uh, OK. COULD YA BE MORE SPECIFIC?"
Twilight sighed. "It's the blue one with the red spine."
Dan searched through the pile. "Yeah, well you're outta luck 'cause I...Oh wait, here it is!" He triumphantly proclaimed as he handed the book to Twi.
"Thank you." she said as put it back in its slot.
"Well, this shelf is full." Twi slid down the ladder. "Guess we better get started on the next one."
Dan grumbled something under his breath, but, reluctatly, he dragged his hooves over to another shelf. For about the next hour or so, the two spent their time stacking away books in their correct order. It wasn't until they were done that Dan threw himself onto a nearby recliner and let out a long, allieviating sigh.
"UUGGGGHH!" he groaned into a pillow. "That was by far th
Opposites Attract: a Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 14Pinkie Pie bounced happily back to Ponyville with Dan trying his best to keep up with the bubbly mare. The basket of berries was half empty because of Pinkie jumping and running around but she didn't mind. She was too happy to spend the day with Dan. Ideas raced through her mind. There were so many things that they could do.More Like This
"Oh boy, Dan! Today is gonna be super duper extra uber fun! What do ya wanna do first?" Pinkie asked, still bouncing around.
Dan shrugged then glanced at the basket Pinkie Pie was carrying. "I don't care but don't ya have to make muffins or something?"
Pinkie looked confused but then looked at her half empty basket. "Oh yeah! Hehe nah, I don't have to bake anything right now. I can do that later."
Now Dan was puzzled. "Wait, don't you work at that bakery? Wouldn't ya lose your JOB if put that off?"
Pinkie giggled. "No, sillyhead! I have the day off! I just like to bake for fun sometimes."
"Seriously? You like to work for FUN? Pfft, I guess I a
Opposites Attract: A Pinkie x Dan story Chapter 11It was 8 o' clock at night and Dan's welcoming party, was in full swing! All the poies and colts were at Sugarcube Corner, dancing, singing, chatting and eating away. Everypony seemed to be having a great time. Everypony, except for Dan who was just standing in the corner.More Like This
As he stood there observing everyone as they danced around to the music produced by Vinyl Scracth, he couldn't help but wonder why they all found this so enjoyable. Parties were never really Dan's thing. Possibly because he was never really invited to them, much less have one that was just for him. Why would Pinkie go this far just to welcome someone? Why the heck was she so nice to him even when he wasn't on his best behavior? All of this made Dan feel...weird. He just couldn't explain it.
Dan's heavy thinking was interrupted by Twilight Sparkle and Spike.
"Hey Dan. Enjoying your party?" Twilight asked.
"Huh? Oh, yeah. It's alright I guess."
"You kidding? This is the best party ever!" exclaimed Spike. "I
