I'm the author of the fic, and--sadly--the ship doesn't feature much in the actual story at the moment. There used to be more before I began an accursed rewrite a year ago. While the story has more groundwork for the ship, their relationship itself is a very small thing in chapter 8. Eventually the AJ and Soarin stuff will be re-reached, but for now its pretty minor. The rewrite is taking much, much longer to catch up to the original story than I anticipated.
These pics are soooo sweet. AJ's mane always looks great done up (I love big, full braids like that) and Soarin's hat has a nice classy and yet somehow steam-punkish air to it. Also, is that an ascot I see him wearing? I approve either way. XD The bottom pic is especially nice. Love these so much! They turned out so wonderful!
