  1. >Your alarm clock goes off at 7AM as usual. For obvious reasons, you forgot to turn it off
  2. >With Dash between you and the clock, you can't quite reach it
  3. >*SLAM*
  4. >With the swing of her fist she shuts off the alarm, probably permanently
  5. "Thanks"
  6. >She groans as her eyes slowly drift shut
  7. >...
  8. >* RIIIIING*
  9. "I think that's yours"
  10. >Dash: "Ugh... damn it"
  11. >She crawls out of bed and finds her dress still lying on the floor
  12. >She removes her phone from the pocket. Answering it seems to be a struggle for her, still trying to wake up
  13. >Dash: "yeah?... I'm at Rarity's place, I spent the night... I went to the dance, remember?... yeah, I'm okay, just tired... alright, I'll be home later"
  14. >She hangs up, then turns her phone off for good measure
  15. "Rarity's place?"
  16. >Dash: "You wanna call my grandpa back and tell him we slept together?"
  17. "... my lips are sealed"
  18. >She lets out a yawn before crawling back into bed
  19. >...
  20. >Dash: "You can't sleep, can you"
  21. "Nope"
  22. >Dash: "Me either"
  23. >Well so much for getting your rest
  24. >You have to climb over her to get out of bed
  25. >Dash: "Where are you going?"
  26. "I'm going to take a quick shower. I'll leave the door unlocked, so if you need anything just come get me"
  27. >Dash: "Alright, I'm going to try and get some rest"
  28. >She pulls the covers over herself, gets comfortable, and falls back asleep
  29.  
  30. >You close the bathroom door, get undressed, and turn on the shower
  31. >The water usually takes forever to heat up, you end up getting in while it's barely tolerable
  32. >After about five minutes you hear the door creak open. You can't see through the curtain but you can assume who it is
  33. "Dash? Is that you?"
  34. >Dash: "Yeah, it's me"
  35. "Need something?"
  36. >Dash: "Kind of... I need you"
  37. "What for?"
  38. >Dash: "..."
  39. >When she doesn't respond you peek out from behind the shower curtain
  40. >She's standing there rubbing her arm, awkwardly staring at the ground like she's looking for something to say
  41. >Oh yeah, and she's naked
  42. >.... Oh, that was her trying to be playful and sexy
  43. >Either you're completely oblivious or she's just really awkward
  44. >Probably both
  45. "Come on, get in here"
  46. >She carefully steps into the shower
  47. "The water's not too cold, is it?"
  48. >Dash: "No, it's fine"
  49. >She'd be more convincing if she wasn't already shivering
  50. "Don't worry, it'll heat up in a minute"
  51. >She snuggles up against you, acting like she's doing it out of love and not to use you as a shield from the water
  52. >Well, you're used to cold water so you let her
  53. >Dash: "hey Anon..."
  54. >She looks up at you and whispers "maybe we can make it a little hotter on our own"
  55. >Her second attempt at seduction, much more effective
  56. "What did you have in mind?"
  57. >She just winks
  58. >Pressing her body against you, she slips one leg between yours. You can feel her prickly pubic area rubbing against your thigh
  59. >Does it still count as "dry-humping" if you're in the shower?
  60. >Whatever you call it, it's working
  61. >Even an ice bath couldn't stop you from rising to the occasion
  62. >Dash: "A little too excited aren't you?"
  63. "You're one to talk, I bet there's more than just water running down my leg"
  64. >Dash: "Not if you're going to make me do all the work here"
  65. >Realizing she's got a point, you consider your options
  66. >Something new
  67. >Something she's not expecting...
  68. >Got it
  69. >You start kissing her on the lips, putting your arms around her. Just as she opens her mouth, hoping for your tongue, you move your kisses down to her neck. She starts running her fingers through your hair. Slowly, you start kneeling down, not ceasing kissing her body, pausing just as your face is between her breasts. She instinctively pushes your head downward, waiting for you to move to her crotch
  70. >But that's not happening
  71. >Instead, you move over towards her breast and kiss her erect nipple, before gently sucking it
  72. >They were already erect from the cold water, making it easier for you to o your job
  73. >She gasps out loudly, probably from surprise and not because she liked it that much
  74. >She starts playing with her other side, roughly groping herself and flicking her nipple around. With her other hand, she presses your face into her like she's trying to suffocate you
  75. >Okay, maybe she did enjoy it that much
  76. >You push her active hand away and do exactly as she was, letting yourself take full responsibility of pleasing her
  77. >With nothing else for her hands to do, she slips her fingers between her legs. Even with her own fingers inside herself, she still humps your leg, using you to push them in an out
  78. >The water has to started to reach a reasonable temperature
  79. >Dash: "Anon..."
  80. "Yeah?"
  81. >Dash: "I want you to- AAH!"
  82. >You gently bite her nipple, which seems to cut her off
  83. "You were saying?"
  84. >Dash: "I want- mmh!"
  85. >You do it again
  86. >She seems to really like it
  87. "Sorry what was that"
  88. >You gently nibble her tit, while she struggles to speak through her gasping
  89. >Dash: "I-I want you t-to fuck me!"
  90. >The fact that she was able to say it out loud like that means she must be desperate
  91. >You can feel the steam rising in the room
  92. >You move the wet clumps of hair from her face before kissing her once again. This time, you welcome her tongue into your mouth, and your hands find their way back to her chest
  93. >As her hand starts massaging the growing appendage between your legs, yours do the same with her soft breasts. Though admittedly small in size, there's a certain attractiveness to them that you can't resist
  94. >Between toying wit her tongue in your mouth and her small nipples with your fingers, you seem to get lost
  95. >It throws you off when she breaks away from the kiss
  96. >Dash: "Anon, please"
  97. >She grabs your hand and guides it down her wet body and between her legs
  98. >Oh yeah, she has a vagina too
  99. >Her body eagerly and gladly welcomes your intruding fingers
  100. >Once you start pumping your fingers in and out of her, she resumes the kiss, even letting out a quiet moan under her breath
  101. >The again, since it only takes one hand to finger her, you continue groping her with the other
  102. >Every part of her body seems to be enjoying this moment
  103. >Her pussy tightens around your fingers every time you try to pull them out. Her tongue wrestles with yours like an aggressive puppy. Her nipples poke out in a way that almost begs you to play with them
  104. >Dash's grip on your dick loosens. She steps back towards the wall of the shower, turns around, and sticks her ass out, resting on the wall with her hands
  105. >Dash: "I can't wait any longer"
  106. >You approach her, gently grabbing her from behind before thrusting your cock into her
  107. >A little abrupt but it worked
  108. >As you pump in and out of her, dripping water splashing between your hips with every impact. You're cautious not to move too fast, you've slipped on this shower floor one too many times to not know your lesson
  109. >Of course, that goes out the window pretty quickly. Once you start to move faster you can feel her start to wobble. At first you think it's the slippery floor, but then you realize she's only balancing herself on the wall with one hand
  110. >It's not unheard of for her to touch herself during sex, rubbing her clitoris while you fuck her
  111. >But her hand isn't anywhere near her crotch
  112. >It's at her chest
  113. "You okay Dash?"
  114. >Dash: "Y-Yeah, just don't stop"
  115. >You lean over her a little more to get better look, and sure enough, she's playing with her own breast, squeezing and flicking her nipple. And she's enjoying it
  116. >You should let her carry on in peace. To bring it up now would most likely embarrass her, and that's no way to treat the girl you love
  117. >Dash: "... h-Hey! What are you doing?"
  118. "Nothing, Dashie"
  119. >You reached for the other side of her chest, teasing it the way she is doing to herself
  120. "Should I stop?"
  121. >Dash: "...."
  122. >No response
  123. >So you continue to play with her tit. Leaning over like this makes it a struggle to keep your balance, but Dash sure loves it, and that's what matters
  124. >Dash: "A-Anon... stop for a sec"
  125. >Well you thought she did
  126. >You pull your hand away and back away so you're no longer leaning over her, but you continue moving
  127. >Dash: "I meant stop everything"
  128. >You stop moving and pull out, and she turns to face you
  129. "Did I do something wrong?"
  130. >Dash: "No, of course not. It's just that... do you really like my boobs THAT much?"
  131. "Well, yeah. Kind of"
  132. >When a girls asks that, there's really no good answer
  133. >But to your surprise, she's happy with your response. Otherwise she wouldn't have that embarrassed half-smile of hers that always gives you a heart attack from cuteness
  134. >Dash: "W-Well, do you wanna do more with them?"
  135. "More like what?"
  136. >Dash: "You know..."
  137. "Actually I don't know"
  138. >Dash: "Well you should, I found it on your computer earlier"
  139. >What
  140. >Dash: "... and a whole lot of it"
  141. >You really need to start hiding your porn folder
  142. >She kneels down, beckoning you closer and closer until your penis is pressed up against her, right at chest level. After a few nudges and adjustments, little Anon finds a snug home right down her cleavage
  143. >Pressing her small breasts together with her hands, she quickly realizes that this is nothing like one of your Japanese animes
  144. >Not with those small (but still perfect) B-cups of hers
  145. >Regardless, she follows through with her plan, bouncing her breasts up and down, trying to squish your dick between them
  146. "I'm not sure that-"
  147. >Dash: "-Shush! I can do this!"
  148. >Her eyes are filled with a lustful determination,a look that you can't help but find irresistible. And you doubting her only seems to make her try even harder
  149. >The hot water raining down makes her already warm body that much warmer. Sliding between her soft, slippery breasts feels pretty good
  150. >But the look in her eyes, the determination, the desire; it's absolutely irresistible, it makes the sensation all the more amazing. Hell, you might actually be getting dizzy
  151. >Realizing that she's doing something right, Dash decided to be a little more adventurous
  152. >She holds your dick out in front of her and pokes it into her left breast, rubbing it around until you run over her nipple
  153. >Your cock twitches when you feel the little bump
  154. >Dash: "So are you enjoying it so far?"
  155. "Just keep going"
  156. >You barely manage to stutter that out
  157. >She smiles triumphantly, continuously rubbing your head over her tits, taking extra time teasing you with her nipples. It's hard to tell how long this has been going on, because the shower rinses off any traces of precum you left trailing across her chest
  158. >Mental note: Do this again outside of the shower
  159. >It must have been a while though
  160. >Your legs start to tremble, feeling weak
  161. >You feel a far-too-familiar tingle building up, and the more your dick twitches in anticipation, you don't even have to give Dash a heads-up. She can just tell
  162. >You've trained her well
  163. "Dash..."
  164. >Dash: "I know"
  165. >Immediately, she returns your cock to it's position between her breasts and begins massaging you
  166. >Though you missed the feeling of her little bumps rubbing against your head, she substitutes it for her tongue gently lapping at you
  167. >She takes as much of you into her mouth as she can, though not flexible enough to really get past the head
  168. >It's all you really need
  169. >The warmth of her mouth, the rough texture of her tongue slowly swirling around your cock, her slippery breasts massaging you on either side
  170. >You can tell you're at your limit, so you do the most sensible thing at the moment
  171. >You pull away
  172. >You pull away, letting your cock pop out of her mouth, spraying strand after strand of your cum onto her face and with a little careful aim, onto her tits
  173. >She flinches as if you just shot at her
  174. >Then again, you kind of just did
  175. >It was really the most intense orgasm you've had in a long time. You feel your legs getting weak, no, your whole body getting weak...
  176. >Then you black out
  177.  
  178. >Dash: "... Anon? Are you awake?"
  179. >Dash is standing over you, wearing the sweater you gave her last night
  180. "... I think so. What happened?"
  181. >You struggle to get up, but she urges that you stay lying on the bed
  182. >Come to think of it, when did you get to your bed?
  183. >Dash: "I take it you're not used to exercising in the heat"
  184. "Why? What happened?"
  185. >You remember doing it in the shower, and the heat making you dizzy, but not much... other than it being awesome
  186. >Dash: "You passed out from exhaustion after you... you know, on me"
  187. >You do recall catching a glimpse of Dash looking up at you, the water slowly rinsing your cum from her face before everything went dark
  188. >Mental note: Do this again outside of the shower. Take pictures
  189. "Did you carry me to bed?"
  190. >Dash: "Yeah. I had to dress you too"
  191. >All you're wearing is your boxers
  192. "This is what you call dressed?"
  193. >Dash: "W-Well I had to make sure you stayed cool, didn't want to wrap you up too much. Heat exhaustion, you know?"
  194. >... yeah, sure
  195. >She's gotten better at bullshitting
  196. "So can I ask you one quick question?"
  197. >Dash: "Sure"
  198. "When you came into the bathroom, was doing all that part of your plan?"
  199. >Dash: "No, not really. I was going to do something else, but then you did that thing with your mouth, and it just... got me in the mood"
  200. "So what we're you going to do?"
  201. >Dash: "... I'll save it for another time"
  202. >She crawls into bed next to you, her still damp hair feeling providing a relieving coolness against your skin as she hugs you tightly
  203.  
  204. >And just now, it occurs to you
  205. >She went through your porn folder at least once, and most likely again while you were passed out
  206. >She knows all of your fetishes
  207. >All of them
  208.  
  209. >You wake up several hours later, after having fallen back asleep
  210. >Dash had taken the liberty to snuggle up next to you under the covers while you were asleep, though you can’t really say against your will
  211. >You try to sit up without disturbing her, but she still wakes
  212. >She rubs her eyes as she slowly gets up. She’s still wearing that baggy old sweater you let her borrow, which is way too big on her. Her hair is a mess, which is perfectly normal seeing as how she just woke up, but it still surprises you
  213. >The fact that the sporty, athletic, tomboy Rainbow Dash could be so adorable
  214. >Dash: “Morning Nonny”
  215. >You glance over at the alarm clock
  216. >1pm
  217. “I’d hardly call it morning”
  218. >She looks at the clock
  219. >Dash: “True. At least I got some sleep though”
  220. "Yeah, about half a day's worth. Didn't you tell your grandpa this morning that you'd be home a long time ago?"
  221. >Dash: "Yeah, kind of"
  222. >She lays back down
  223. "Still tired?"
  224. >Dash: “No, I just don’t feel like going home yet”
  225. "Then don't, stay as long as you like"
  226. >Dash: "Really?"
  227. "Sure, why not"
  228. >Deciding to take you up on your offer she sits up next to you
  229. "Though maybe you should at least stop by at home for a bit and change clothes. You've been wearing nothing but my sweater since last night"
  230. >Dash: "Don't worry. I'll make sure to wash it before I give it back-"
  231. "-Don't worry, keep it"
  232. >Dash: "You sure?"
  233. "Yeah, it looks good on you"
  234. > Her reaction is delayed
  235. >First nothing. Then a little smile. Then a little blush.
  236. >Then all at once, she tackles you into a hug tight enough to suffocate you, loudly thanking you over and over again. You fall back onto the bed
  237. >As cute as she is, it doesn't change the fact that she's strong, really strong.
  238. >And it doesn't change the fact that she still doesn't have clean clothes to wear
  239. >Finally, she jumps up out of the bed, taking the sweater off to get dressed
  240. >She puts her dress back on and ties the sweater around her waist
  241. >After throwing some other clothes on, you walk with her to the front door to see her out
  242. "You know your way back home right?"
  243. >Dash: "Pretty sure. What do you want to do when I get back?"
  244. "I was thinking that maybe we could have lunch or something, seeing as how it's already afternoon and we haven't eaten all day"
  245. >Dash: "I like the way you think. What are you going to make?"
  246. "Actually, I was thinking we could go out somewhere. There's a lot of really good restaurants nearby"
  247. >Dash: "Go out to eat?"
  248. "That's what I said"
  249. >Dash: "You mean like... like a date?"
  250. >It never really occurred to you until now, but you've never really taken Dash out on a date, just the two of you
  251. >Unless of course asking her to the dance counted, which it didn't
  252. >What the hell kind of boyfriend are you
  253. "Yeah, just like a date"
  254. >Dash: "... Sure, sounds fun, See you in a bit"
  255. >She waves goodbye and heads off down the street
  256. >Looking down at yourself, you realize you should probably get dressed in something better too
  257. >For some reason, you expected a lot more spaghetti dropage from her just now
  258. >Maybe she's getting over awkwardness
  259. >Good for her
  260.  
  261. >Be Rainbow Dash
  262. >As soon as you round the corner out of sight from Nonny's apartment you take your phone out and turn it back on
  263. >Nonny just asked you out on a date. Like, a real date with just the two of you. The dance didn't really count, all your friends were there. But this time, it's no friends. Just you and him...
  264. >You're about to have a heart attack
  265. >Once your phone is on you call Rarity
  266. >You're going to need some advice
  267.  
  268. >Be Rainbow Dash
  269. >As soon as you were done on the phone with Rarity you hauled ass back home
  270. >Not fast enough for gramps apparently
  271. >Gramps: "Where the hell have you been? I thought you were coming home hours ago"
  272. "Sorry, I meant to come home sooner but I was so tired"
  273. >Gramps: "You're dad would kill you if he knew you were out all night"
  274. "Well it's not like I was sleeping in the streets or anything, I was at Rarity's place"
  275. >Gramps: "Well hurry and clean yourself up. You reek of sweat and you look a total mess"
  276. >He's never really been a gentle talker
  277. >Then again, he does have a point. You're wearing the same dress you wore last night; the only difference is it's more wrinkled after spending the night thrown on the floor. Not to mention how you hurried home in it today, you petty much mixed in fresh sweat in with the old sweat from last night's dancing and drunken sex
  278. >Don't exactly look like a rainbow or smell like a bowl of skittles
  279. >First thing's first, you take a shower
  280. >The shower at Anon's place didn't really get you any cleaner
  281.  
  282. >While in the shower, gramps starts calling out your name. When he doesn't stop you double-time getting yourself cleaned up
  283. >After drying yourself off you step out of the bathroom, with nothing but a towel around you to cover up
  284. "Alright alright, what do you want?"
  285. >Gramps: "The commie's here to see you"
  286. >Rarity steps out from behind him
  287. >Rarity: "Is this a bad time"
  288. >Yes it is, you're naked. But you do need her help, and you did ask her to come by...
  289. "No, it's fine. Come on"
  290. >You take Rarity back to your room
  291. >When you get to your room, Rarity sits on your bed
  292. >Rarity: "He's never going to warm up to me, is he?"
  293. "Don't take it personal, he doesn't like anyone"
  294. >You drop the towel and start getting yourself dressed. As you put your bra on you're interrupted by Rarity jumping up and groping you from behind. Your boobs are a little sore from earlier
  295. "What the hell are you doing?"
  296. >Rarity: "Hmm... "
  297. >She pulls her hands away and sits back down
  298. "I think you need to size up again"
  299. >Damn it, you just did a month ago
  300. >Ignoring it, you continue getting dressed
  301. >Rarity: "So does your grandpa know about your date today?"
  302. >You shush her
  303. "he doesn't even know that I have a boyfriend"
  304. >Rarity: "really? why not?"
  305. "if he knew about me and Anon he'd kill him. especially if he knew about... everything"
  306. >Rarity makes a zipper motion across her lips
  307. >When you're finished dressing you present yourself
  308. "So, how do I look?"
  309. >She says nothing
  310. "... What?"
  311. >She shakes her head
  312. "Too casual?"
  313. >She sighs
  314. >Maybe you should have asked Fluttershy for help
  315. >Rarity: "Well, its... nice. But if this is for Anon you ant to look better than nice, right?"
  316. "Yeah, I guess, but-"
  317. >Rarity: "-No excuses! It's my job to make sure you look absolutely perfect!"
  318. >Well, she's got enthusiasm
  319. >After rummaging around in your closet, she picks something out
  320. >Rarity: "Here, try this"
  321. >After trying it on she decides it's not "perfect" either, so she puts you in something else
  322. >She puts you through a whole damn fashion show, turning your closet inside out before deciding on an outfit for you, a nice red blouse, not too fancy but still nice, with black shorts, and long black socks up to your knees
  323. "You're sure I look good in this?"
  324. >Rarity: "Trust me darling you look magnificent. Or 'awesome', as you'd probably put it"
  325. >You look at yourself all over, really getting a sense of what you're wearing. You do look pretty damn awesome
  326. "Yeah, you're right"
  327. >For once her picky sense of fashion may save you
  328. >Rarity: "So where is the date going to be?"
  329. "We haven't even decided yet. He just told me there's some nice places around"
  330. >Rarity: "Well do you have an idea of where you might be going?"
  331. "Nice try, you're not coming along"
  332. >Her pout says you hit the nail right on the head
  333. >On your way out, you grab Anon''s sweater, which was balled up by your pillow
  334. >Rarity: "Dash, wait"
  335. "What?"
  336. >Rarity: "Don't you have a sweater that's not so... worn out?"
  337. "This is Anon's sweater, but he told me this morning I could keep it, so I thought I'd wear it"
  338. >She doesn't seem pleased at all
  339. >Rarity: "I'm sure it means a lot. It's just so old and faded, it makes your whole outfit look a little... well, no offense, sloppy"
  340. "Well tough luck, I'm taking it. Besides, it's actually really warm and comfy"
  341. >You quickly put it on, unzipped and open. The sleeves are long enough to cover up your hands to your fingertips. Then you head out, showing Rarity out with you
  342. >As far as gramps is concerned, you're heading back to her place
  343.  
  344.  
  345. "Sorry for the wait Anon, I didn't take too long did I?"
  346. >Anon: "No, not at all"
  347. >He's waiting for you outside his front door, tapping his finger on the wall with the same expression he had when you met him at the cafe last night
  348. >Yup, he's lying
  349. "Are you sure?"
  350. >Anon: "Well you did kind of take two hours, but it was worth it"
  351. >The second half of that statement was almost sweet enough to make you ignore the first half
  352. >He tries to take your and, but ends up with a handful of sleeve. So instead, he puts his arm around your shoulders
  353. "So anyways, where are we going?"
  354. >Anon: "What are you in the mood for?"
  355. "Doesn't matter, whatever you have in mind"
  356. >Anon: "We can go anywhere really, it doesn't matter to me"
  357. "Anywhere's fine with me too"
  358. >The two of you are stuck in this situation, the whole "I don't know where do you want to go" endless loop, and you both realize it
  359. >You start walking together towards no specific place, figuring you'll decide on the way
  360.  
  361. >He's awkwardly staring at you the whole way there. You decide to ask him about it
  362. "Is everything okay?"
  363. >Anon: "I'm fine. You just look great today"
  364. "Even with your old worn-out sweater?"
  365. >Anon: "Looks a lot better on you than it did on me"
  366. >You put your arm around his waist and pull yourself closer to his side
  367. "Thanks. You look great too"
  368. >He smiles
  369. >Victory
  370. >Anon: "Thanks Dashie"
  371. >Sometimes you wonder if he calls you that just to gauge your reaction... jokes on him, that just makes it a double victory
  372.  
  373. >Not far down the street there's a big outdoor plaza with a bunch of different restaurants, like a big food court
  374. >There's a sushi bar that looks closed at the moment, probably having something to do with the big red board nailed to the door, with bold letters that read "PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE"
  375. >Next door is an Italian place with a window sign that boasts having the best spaghetti in town, claiming it's "out of this world"
  376. >A little further down there's a barbeque place with an intoxicating scent wafting over
  377. >In the middle of the parking lot is a Mexican food truck, with a long line being held up by a blue-haired girl at the front loudly demanding more tacos
  378. >There's a McDonald's too, don't they have a dollar menu?
  379. >Anon: "See anything in particular?"
  380. "Well... "
  381. >You wouldn't mind getting dirty with some BBQ ribs... but that Italian place does make an interesting statement
  382. >Yup, you've made up your mind
  383. "How do you feel for some spaghetti?"
  384. >Taking each other's hands you head into the Italian restaurant, Ampliare Pene
  385. >The host is a young looking guy, probably just a few years older than you and Anon. He tells you that the wait shouldn't be long, they're clearing up a table now
  386. >The two of you stand against the wall waiting for them to call you up. There's another couple waiting outside the restaurant
  387. >Before you can really think too much, the host calls you up and takes you to your table
  388.  
  389. >You got a booth along the wall by a window. A minute or two later the waiter shows up to take your drink orders
  390. "Just water is fine"
  391. >Anon: "I'll have coffee"
  392. >He leaves and the two of you look over the menu
  393. >Anon: "You have an idea of what you're getting?"
  394. "Not sure, do you?"
  395. >Anon: "The pasta's definitely worth trying. It's what I usually get"
  396. "So you come here often?"
  397. >Anon: "Sometimes, but not usually with another person... scratch that, never with another person"
  398. "You mean you go out to eat alone?"
  399. >Anon: "Yeah, I was THAT guy. At least I got a few free sympathy deserts out of it though"
  400. >Damn, you actually feel bad for him
  401. >Even before you had him, you would go out to eat with the girls, never by yourself
  402. "Well you don't have to be that guy anymore"
  403. >You reach your hand out across the table for his. A simple gesture, but it gets a smile out of him. Out of both of you
  404. >Just then, the waiter arrives with your drinks and a basket of complimentary breadsticks, just in time to ruin the moment
  405. >Then he takes your orders. You order the spaghetti and meatballs in a four cheese tomato sauce, sounds really good right about now. Anon simply says "make that two"
  406. >Once the waiter's gone, you try to think of a way to restore that moment, that feeling of happiness that makes you forget that anyone else was even in the room, like the rest of the world doesn't even matter
  407. >...
  408. >Nope. Nothing. He ruined the moment
  409. >Someone's not getting a tip
  410. >Less than a minute after he's gone Anon had emptied his cup of coffee
  411. "Already?"
  412. >Anon: "I needed it. Had to skip my morning coffee because someone kept me busy"
  413. "Hey, just for the record that was all your idea"
  414. >You know just as much as he does how wrong that is
  415. >Anon: "Pretty sure it was yours"
  416. "That's not how I remember it"
  417. >Anon: "Are you remembering the same morning?"
  418. >Initiate damage control
  419.  
  420. "Let's just agree that it was a mutual idea"
  421. >Anon: "But it was all you-"
  422. "-So anyways have you tried these breadsticks? They look good"
  423. >You immediately grab one and stuff it in your mouth, trying to change the subject
  424. >He's quietly laughing
  425. >Anon: "Regardless, I'm sure the next time it will be all my idea"
  426. "Next time?"
  427. >Anon: "Of course. Let's face it that was too awesome to be a one-time thing"
  428. >You nearly choke on the last of the breadstick, but manage to force it down
  429. "... so that good, huh?"
  430. >He smiles
  431. >Anon: "Dashie, everything you do is awesome"
  432. >You can't tell if he's teasing you again or being sincere, so you have no idea how to respond
  433. >He reaches across the table for your hand again, lacing his fingers with yours
  434. >Yup, it's sincere
  435. >You try to come up with a response
  436. >You know, something sweet, something romantic
  437. >...
  438. >*BUMP*
  439. >Anon: "Did you just kick me?"
  440. >Yeah, that's the best you got
  441. "It was more of a tap"
  442. >He quietly chuckles. He knows what that 'tap' means
  443. >An acceptable substitute for punching him in the arm
  444. >It's really something special that such a small gesture can mean so much between-
  445. >*BUMP*
  446. "Hey!"
  447. >Anon: "What? It was just a tap"
  448. >Forget love
  449. >He just declared war
  450. >The two of you spend the rest if the time waiting for your meals kicking each other under the table
  451. >There's probably a lot of people staring at you
  452. >But fuck it, you're having fun
  453. >The kick fight halts when the waiter came by to refill Anon's coffee
  454. >After assuring that your food should be out shortly, he leaves you be, and as soon as he's gone Anon makes the first shot
  455. >Go time
  456. >In your attempt to retaliate you accidentally kick the table stand. The table rattles, nearly making his coffee almost spill over and knocking your utensils on the floor
  457. >Maybe you shouldn't have left them on he edge
  458. >Anon: "Smooth"
  459. >You get down to pick them up, and while peeking under the table, you notice he's sitting with his legs abnormally wide open, even for a guy
  460. >...
  461. >Target locked
  462. >You toss your utensils on the opposite corner of the table against the wall, making a mental note to ask for new ones. God knows when the last time they cleaned this floor
  463. >When you sit back down you try your best to conceal your smile as you discretely kick your shoes off
  464. >You lean back and extend your leg forward, caressing his shin with your toes a lot more gently than you have been. He notices the change in mood
  465. >Anon: "Dash, what are you up to?"
  466. "Nothing"
  467. >So you say as you slide your foot up to is thigh, gently rubbing him up and down as if massaging him. It's hard to tell if he's actually liking it at first, he's too good at keeping his cool; it's a little nerve-racking You hate to rush these things, but you need to know. Your foot makes it's way between his legs, gently enough to not hurt him but quick enough to catch him off guard
  468. >And it's still a little unclear, but there's something going on in there
  469. >You give him a little pressure
  470. >Anon: "Nothing, huh?"
  471. "Is it working?"
  472. >He doesn't say anything; his body speaks for itself
  473. >Something's rising in there
  474. >Victory
  475. >Even between his pants and your socks, you can make out the shape of his thing, so you start stroking it the best you can. It seems easier than you thought it'd be
  476. >Just one of the many things you learned about while looking through his computer
  477. >You can feel his leg shaking
  478. >You're doing something right, so you move just a little faster
  479. >He always seems has the same expression when you do this stuff- trying, and failing, to not look like he's loving it
  480. >Anon: "Hey Dash"
  481. "Yeah?"
  482. >Anon: "Having fun?"
  483. "Maybe"
  484. >Anon: "How far are you planning on taking this?"
  485. "As far as you want to go"
  486. >That was a sexy response right?
  487. >He grabs your foot, sliding his thumbs between you and his body
  488. >Maybe not so sexy after all
  489. >He squeezes you with his thumbs, rotating them around the ball of your foot
  490. >He's massaging you
  491. >Maybe that was sexy after all
  492. >You slide your heel up and down his length, a feeling you've missed for so long
  493. >You're not quite as good at hiding your expression as he is
  494. >You feel a tingle in your foot, that eventually spreads up between your legs
  495. >There's no real way to explain why having your feet touched has always been so exhilarating
  496. >Through his pants you can feel a little twitch every now and again. It makes you want to giggle every time
  497. >He stops rubbing your foot, much to your dismay
  498. >You try pouting, hoping to get him to continue
  499. >A smile spreads across his face... you're not sure how you feel bout it-
  500. "Ah- mmh!"
  501. >You quickly stuff your face with another breadstick, trying to stifle your voice. His foot just pressed between your legs
  502. >Part of you wishes he'd given you a heads up. Another part of you is wishing you were wearing a skirt
  503. >He must have taken his shoes off too, because you can feel each toe rubbing your crotch up and down
  504. >This is what, the third time you've done it in the past two days?
  505. >And yet, this is the most exciting
  506. >You scoot in closer and gently grind into his foot. Damn it, if only he could move his toes like his fingers
  507. >Nevertheless, you can feel your underwear getting more and more damp by the minute
  508. >.... And far too soon, he pulls his foot out from between your crotch, and pushes yours away
  509. >There's no way he finished yet, you would have felt it
  510. >But regardless, it seems he's done for now
  511. >Damn it, you're still wet, and it's uncomfortable, really uncomfortable
  512. >Maye you should run to the bathroom. You can't finish yourself off, but you can at least clean up a little
  513. >Anon: "Hey Dash, the-"
  514. "Just a second, I'll be right back"
  515. >You jump out of your seat
  516. >Anon: "Dash wait-"
  517. *CRASH*
  518.  
  519. >Be Anon
  520. >Dash had started some foot play with you, so you returned the favor
  521. >But sooner than you'd have liked, you catch the waiter coming back with the two plates of spaghetti
  522. >You had to break off the foot play, you don't want to risk getting caught in public, especially not in a good restaurant like this
  523. >Since he's coming towards you, Dash doesn't see him approaching
  524. "Hey Dash, the-"
  525. >Dash: "Just a second, I'll be right back"
  526. >She jumps out of her seat
  527. "Dash wait-"
  528. *CRASH*
  529. >... just in time to collide with the waiter
  530. >Dash stumbled back, managing to catch herself on the table
  531. >The waiter tripped forward, falling onto his knees
  532. >The spaghetti plates fell from his hands, making a perfect 10/10 landing
  533. >One in your lap, the other on your head
  534. >Both spaghetti-side down
  535. >This could have gone better
  536.  
  537. >Be Rainbow Dash
  538. >You just bumped into the waiter. He fell over but you managed to catch yourself
  539. >Waiter: "You okay ma'am?"
  540. "Yeah, I'm fine"
  541. >The waiter gets to his feet and apologizes, to you first but mostly to Anon
  542. >And that's when you glance over at Anon, his face covered in spaghetti
  543. >...
  544. >Well consider yourself single from now on
  545. >The waiter rushes off to get some towels, leaving you and Anon alone together at the center of attention
  546. >The whole restaurant is watching you trying to find the right words to say for a sincere apology
  547. "... u-umm"
  548. >He looks at you without saying a word. You've never seen him mad before so it's hard to tell if he is or not
  549. "I-I didn't mean to, I'm sorry"
  550. >Anon: "Don't be"
  551. "I didn't do it on purpose I just-"
  552. >Anon: "-Dash, please"
  553. >He puts his hand up to shush you. At first, you can't tell where he's going with this
  554. >Your palms are sweaty. You knees are weak. Your arms are heavy
  555. >He lets out a sigh. He closes his eyes as if trying to think...
  556. >Then, as he puts his hand down, he quietly chuckles
  557. >Anon: "It's not the first time I've dropped my spaghetti here"
  558. >His chuckle bursts into a full on laugh, which you awkwardly try to join in on
  559. >After wiping off all the noodles off himself and onto one of the plates, he gets up and puts his hands on your shoulders, as if hugging you from a distance
  560. >Anon: "It's no big deal alright?"
  561. >He gently strokes your cheek, and you nod in acceptance
  562. >You don't care about getting messy, you collapse into his chest and hug him tightly
  563. >Naturally he smells like spaghetti
  564. >At least the food smells good
  565. >The waiter shows up with an armful of towels and starts cleaning up. He hands one to each of you, before offering to comp your meals
  566. >You and Anon clean yourselves up as best you can, then take your seats on opposite sides of the booth
  567. >Everyone else carries on with their business, save for the occasional awkward glance
  568. >Anon: "Hold still"
  569. >Not long after the heads up, the waiter comes back out with two identical plates of pasta, putting one in front of each of you, assuring you it's on the house
  570. >It looks much more appetizing on a plate rather than in Anon's hair
  571. >As hungry as you are you find yourself having a hard time managing your fork, your nerves still calming down
  572. >Anon: "You okay?"
  573. "Yeah, I think"
  574. >He silently shakes his head, then gets up to sit on the same side as you. Taking your fork from you, he twirls it on the plate then holds it up to you
  575. "Are you trying to feed me?"
  576. >Anon: "Aren't you hungry?"
  577. >You silently lean forward and take the bite
  578. >....
  579. >Anon snickers
  580. >Yeah, you're probably smiling like an idiot right bout now, but damn is this the best pasta you've ever eaten. And suddenly you feel well enough to feed yourself. You take your fork back and start stuffing your face
  581. >After a minute or two you catch Anon watching you in astonishment, which is when it suddenly dons on you that you've been eating rather... aggressively. "Uncouth" as Rarity often describes it
  582. >In front of Anon it is a little embarrassing. As if dropping the spaghetti wasn't awkward enough
  583. "I swear I'm not usually such a messy eater"
  584. >Anon: "Save it Dash. I'm actually impressed"
  585. "What?"
  586. >Anon: "A guy's gotta love a girl who knows how to appreciate good food. Remind me to take you to that barbeque place down the street, they've got some damn good ribs"
  587. >And Rarity said you'd never get a real date when acting so unladylike
  588. >Suck it
  589.  
  590. >You both finish your food pretty quickly, and the waiter comes back with the desert menus
  591. >Looking through it your eyes light up. Everything on here looks so delicious, even if you can't pronounce half of it
  592. >Anon: "... I think she wants one of everything"
  593. >He's actually right, so you close it and set it down
  594. "You pick something Anon"
  595. >Anon looks at you, then back down at the menu, then back at you, then back at the menu
  596. >He holds it up to the waiter and points at something, which you can't see, and asks for two
  597. >Anon: "And can we actually get then to-go?"
  598. >The waiter nods, takes the menus, and heads away
  599. "Why to-go?"
  600. >Anon: "Sorry, but I don't want to be eating desert covered in spaghetti"
  601. "So... does this mean that-"
  602. >Anon: "-Yes, you're coming back to my place"
  603. >All of a sudden you feel giddy about going back to his place
  604. "So what did you end up getting?"
  605. >Anon: "You'll find out"
  606. >The waiter comes back with a small white box. He tells you everything is on the house, as an apology for earlier
  607. >A fun date, a little under-the-table action, and now free food?
  608. >This day just keeps getting better and better
  609.  
  610. >The walk back to Anon's place was pretty quick. He carries the box the whole way
  611. >He puts the box in the fridge, then takes you back to his bedroom. The sweater seemed to get a little messy, so you take it off and you're fine. Anon, on the other hand, needs a shower
  612. >Anon: "Oh, and Dash, try not to ambush me in the shower again"
  613. "I'll try not to"
  614. >He smiles
  615. >Perhaps you finally got the whole "playful and sexy" thing down
  616. >Anon: "And don't peek in the box either"
  617. >With that, he heads to the bathroom, and as soon as you hear the shower running you head straight for the kitchen
  618. >Just one peek wouldn't hurt
  619. >Inside are two slices of cake, with white frosting and topped with a strawberry syrup and sliced strawberries
  620. >It makes your mouth water just thinking about it
  621. >You quickly close the box and put it back where it was, making sure it was facing the same direction and everything
  622. >Don't want to leave any evidence
  623. >You hurry back to his room and plop down on the bed, the way he usually does when he comes over to your place
  624. >Your phone rings
  625. "... Hello?"
  626. >Rarity: "Hey Dash, hope I'm not interrupting anything"
  627. "No, you're good. Just chilling"
  628. >Rarity: "So what's the word, how was your date?"
  629. "It was great, I'm at his place now-"
  630. >"-Damn girl, are you about to get some ass!?!"
  631. >You hear Pinkie shouting in from a distance
  632. >You must be on speakerphone
  633. "No no, we're just hanging out, going to have desert in a bit. Who else is there anyways?"
  634. >Rarity: "Just me and her. So what's all this about desert?"
  635. "It's not what you think, Anon just ordered something from the restaurant. A little strawberry cake"
  636. >Rarity: "From that Italian place down the street?"
  637. "Yeah, how'd you know?"
  638. >Rarity: "Oh, I've been there plenty of times. Trust me, that cake is absolutely divine, you'll love it"
  639. "That good, huh?"
  640. >Pinkie: "Yeah, that good? Why didn't we pick some up earlier-"
  641. >Rarity: "-shh!"
  642. "What? You were there too?"
  643. >Rarity: "Yeah, Rarity told me about your date so we went down there to check up on you. Sucks about the spaghetti thing, but don't worry we won't tell-"
  644. >Rarity: "-Pinkie!"
  645. "You guys were spying on us!?"
  646. >Rarity: "Well... it was your first date and all, and we were curious. You're not... too upset are you?"
  647. >... eh, who cares. Today was the best day ever. And at least they DID leave you two alone. Knowing that isn't going to ruin your day
  648. >Still tough, you really need to find a way for some privacy
  649. "You're not still following us, are you?"
  650. >Rarity: "Of course not"
  651. "Then it's fine, just don't tell anyone about the spaghetti thing alright?"
  652. >Rarity: "Don't worry, our lips are sealed"
  653. >You'll probably hear about this at school on Monday
  654. "Good, I've got to go"
  655. >You hang up, and quickly go through the apartment, making sure all the windows and curtains are closed just in case
  656.  
  657. >While checking on the windows you hear the shower shut off, and Anon steps out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around his waist
  658. >Anon: "Why's it so dark in here"
  659. "Had to make sure no one is watching us"
  660. >Anon: "Uh huh... well I'm going to get dressed. I'll check my closet for an extra tin foil helmet"
  661. >You have no idea what that means, but you assume it's a joke. He retires to his room to get dressed
  662. >Come to think of it, it is pretty dark in here. The only light in the whole building was coming in from the windows, and even now the sun is starting to set. You flip the light switch in the kitchen, and a single bulb flickers a few times before turning on
  663. >Anon: "Hey it actually worked"
  664. "Huh?"
  665. >Anon comes back in, fully dressed
  666. >Anon: "I swear that bulb's been half dead for almost a week, I've just been too lazy to replace it. Can you get the box from the fridge?"
  667. >You take the box out while he grabs two plates and two forks, setting them down on the table. You set the box down
  668. >Anon: "Go ahead, open it"
  669. >Pulling up the lid of the box, you're just as excited to see it now as the first time
  670. >Anon: "So what do you think?"
  671. "Looks okay I guess..."
  672. >You hold back your laugh and wait for his response. As soon as he looks visibly disheartened, you let yourself giggle
  673. >Now you get why he teases you so much. It's fun
  674. >After serving each plate with a slice of cake, you dig in. It's so delicious, the first bite makes you want to jump out of your seat. You rock back and forth in your chair, nearly falling over several times
  675. >Anon: "So is it good?"
  676. "The best!"
  677. >Anon: "I had a feeling you'd like this one"
  678. "Well your feeling was right!"
  679. >All this excitement, all this energy, it's got you acting like a small child
  680. >And you only took one bite
  681. >You don't even wolf it down the way you did the pasta. With this, you slowly savor every last bite
  682. >And yet, you still finish yours sooner than you'd have hoped
  683. >But glancing across the table, Anon still has a few bites left
  684. ... hey Nonny?"
  685. >Anon: "Yeah?"
  686. "So I was thinking, today was so much fun"
  687. >You give him your best bedroom eyes, which probably aren't very good in the first place, mostly awkward
  688. "A-And once we're done here, we could go back to the bedroom. Maybe we can have a lot more fun... i-if you know what I mean"
  689. >Anon: "I think I get what you mean Dashie..."
  690. >He leans in real close to you, looking right into your eyes
  691. >Anon: "... one bite. That's it"
  692. >He slides his plate closer to you
  693. >Well... it kind of worked
  694. "For real?"
  695. >Anon: "Yeah, for real, go ahead"
  696. >You take just a small bite
  697. "Thanks, you really are awesome Anon!"
  698. >Anon: "Hey, I thought I was 'Nonny' "
  699. >That catches you by surprise
  700. "Well yeah, but I mean like, not always you know"
  701. >Anon: "So then I'm not always your 'Nonny' ?"
  702. >Where is he going with this... wait a second
  703. "Are you saying you want me to call you that all the time?"
  704. >Anon: "If you do then you'll always get to be my Dashie"
  705. >... damn, he drives a hard bargain
  706. >You scoot your chair over next to him
  707. "Deal... Nonny"
  708. >His arm swings around your shoulders
  709. >Anon: "Right back at you, Dashie"
  710. >It makes your heart skip a beat every time he calls you that
  711. >You'll be dead by the end of the week
  712. >There's one last bite of his cake, and you decide to let him have it. He scoops it up on his fork and raises it up... to your mouth
  713. >You happily take that last bite
  714. >The two of you, Dashie and Nonny, snuggle on the couch watching t.v. Or rather, flipping through the channels looking for something to watch
  715. >Before you even realize it, the sun has gone down
  716. >Anon- scratch that, Nonny had turned the lights on, so you had no idea how dark it had gotten
  717. "Crap, it's getting late. I gotta get going"
  718. >Nonny: "Do you have a ride?"
  719. "Not really"
  720. >Nonny: "Can't you call someone? What about your grandpa?"
  721. "He doesn't drive. I can walk, it's fine-"
  722. >Nonny: "-Like hell you're walking. Not this time of night"
  723. "It's not that dark outside, I'll be fine"
  724. >He stares at you, waiting...
  725. >...
  726. >... you feel a yawn coming in that you can't hold back
  727. >Nonny: "I knew it, you're too tired to walk even if you wanted to"
  728. "So what should I do?"
  729. >Nonny: "Let me know when you're ready for bed, that's what you'll do"
  730. "Wait, I'm spending the night again?"
  731. >Nonny: "Yup"
  732.  
  733. >Part of you is saying you shouldn't. You can't be spending every night here, gramps is going to get pissed; not to mention it's am imposition on him. Plus, being under the same roof alone with him, with your lack of self-control it's only a matter of time before you do lewd, inappropriate things; things you shouldn't be doing
  734. >Yeah, part of you is saying that
  735. >The stupid part
  736. >You call gramps again, letting him know that you're "spending another night at Rarity's place"
  737. >As much as you hate it, you're tired already, so Anon takes you back to the bedroom
  738. >He tells you to go ahead and get yourself comfortable, so you strip to your underwear. It's how you've been sleeping lately, it ensures maximum coziness.Realizing it, Nonny does the same
  739. >He gets in bed first, then you get in with your back to him. After taking your position as the little spoon, he pulls you closer against him
  740. >The warmth of his skin against yours and the rhythmic beating of his heart, which you feel strongly thumping against your back, helps lull you to sleep
  741.  
  742. >You are Anon
  743. >Waking up, you notice another warm body next to you nestled in your arms, her face buried your chest
  744. >Dash spent another night at your place
  745. >A routine you could get used to
  746. >Burying your face in her hair, you close your eyes, taking in her sweet scent
  747. >She still smells like skittles, even before showering or anything
  748. >...
  749. >The calm silence of the room is broken by a quiet groan
  750. >Dash: "... Nonny?"
  751. "Yeah?"
  752. >Dash: "Are you sniffing me?"
  753. "Of course not"
  754. >She looks up, her eyes meeting yours
  755. >Dash: "Why not? I feel weird being the only one doing it"
  756. >She quietly laughs to herself
  757. "Have it your way"
  758. >You press your face down into her head, taking in a deep, loud, exaggerated inhale. It gets a laugh out of her, just as you intended
  759. >Dash: "Alright alright, I get it"
  760. >She gently pushes you away and sits up
  761. >Her lips have just the slightest curve, forming a half-asleep smile
  762. >Dash: "So what's the plan for today?"
  763. "Plan?"
  764. >Dash: "Well yeah. We weren't just going to stay in bed all day were we?"
  765. "That's my usual Sunday plan"
  766. >Dash: "Somehow that doesn't surprise me"
  767. >She's right you know
  768. "Alright, just give me a minute to have some coffee"
  769. >The two of you crawl out of bed
  770. >Somehow, you managed to forget that she was still in her underwear
  771. "... Yeah, maybe we should get you a change of clothes first off"
  772. >Dash: "Tell you what, let's do it after breakfast"
  773. >Oh yeah, breakfast
  774. "Breakfast, huh? What'd you have in mind?"
  775. >Dash: "Anything, I'm starving"
  776. >She's got a point; all you really ate yesterday was the pasta and the cake. You could really go for some breakfast too
  777. >And you know exactly what you're going to make
  778. "Hope you're in the mood for pancakes, Dashie"
  779. >Her eyes light up, and she quickly jumps to your side to kiss you on the cheek
  780. >Dash: "I have been waiting so long for a guy to say those words"
  781. >Looks like you made the right choice
  782. >You head to the kitchen and get started on cooking up some pancakes, while Dash watches eagerly
  783. >After taking out two plates, you serve a small stack on each of them, topped with butter and syrup
  784. >You take them to the living room, and you and Dash spend the morning eating pancakes while watching whatever makes up Sunday morning television
  785. >Basically, nothing
  786.  
  787. >After a long pause of silence between the two of you, the only sound coming from the television, Dash speaks up
  788. >Dash: "... hey Nonny, what the hell are we watching"
  789. "No idea"
  790. >You had completely zoned out long ago while channel flipping
  791. >You were on some random channel, some cartoon about talking vegetables and Jesus or something
  792. >Weird stuff
  793. >Dash: "Well, there's pretty much nothing on television, want to see if there's anything worth doing around town?"
  794. "First off, we have to get you some clean clothes"
  795. >Dash: "Yeah, good point. Then again, I really don't feel like walking all the way home though"
  796. "Hell, if you want I could just wash the clothes you have here. I don't have my own washing machine, but there's a laundromat about a block down the street. I have quite a bit of laundry to do for myself, so I might as well"
  797. >Dash: "So should I wait here while you go?"
  798. "Nah, you could come with me if you want"
  799. >Dash: "In my underwear?"
  800. "... now that you mention it, we should wash your underwear too"
  801. >Dash: "What? Then what am I supposed to wear?"
  802. >After thinking for a moment, you get an idea
  803. "You ready?"
  804. >Dash: "I... I think so"
  805. >You wait outside your bedroom door for it to open, and when it does, out steps your Dashie wearing your clothes. An old baggy t shirt and jeans that barely fit her, even with a belt
  806. >She looks like a Mexican drug dealer
  807. >A really cute one
  808. >Dash: "I look ridiculous, don't I?"
  809. "That'd be saying I look ridiculous, seeing as how they're my clothes
  810. >Dash: ""Well... no offense Nonny but-"
  811. "-Okay let's go before you turn full Rarity on me"
  812. >Throwing her clothes in a bag with yours you head over to the laundromat
  813.  
  814. >It's usually pretty empty this time of day, and today is no different; come afternoon this place gets packed
  815. >When you arrive, you promptly throw all the clothes into an available machine
  816. >Not long after, your druggie neighbor comes in with what looks like a surprising amount of laundry
  817. "Damn, you actually have clothes?"
  818. >Neighbor: "What the hell is that supposed to mean"
  819. "I just figured you wore the same thing every day"
  820. >She just rolls her eyes
  821. >Seriously, the only clean part of her wardrobe is that stupid hat she wears every day. Other than that, it's the same ripped jeans, same faded t shirt every single day
  822. >Like every stoner
  823. >At the back of the laundromat there's a notice board with flyers for local events, charities, numbers for local call girls, etc.
  824. >Like an old-school Craigslist
  825. >You usually don't bother with it, but Dash seems to be interested in something
  826. >Dash: "Hey Nonny, come check this out"
  827. >Neighbor: "Pfft, Nonny?"
  828. >Ignore her and go over to see what Dash wants
  829. "What's up Dashie?"
  830. >Dash: "Take a look at this"
  831. >There's a flyer for some kind of music festival down at the strip mall. All kinds of bands, street performers, and guitar-playing art students thinking they have talent will be there
  832. "Sounds interesting. You want to check it out later?"
  833. >Dash: "Yeah, it looks fun"
  834. >When you agree to it, she pulls you into a hug
  835. >You take the opportunity looking over Dash's shoulder to shoot a taunting stare at your neighbor
  836. >A reminder that she's still single and you're not
  837. >Your neighbor just rolls her eyes again
  838. >Once the clothes are finished you quickly hurry home, shower, fool around a bit, shower again, and head to the mall for the music festival
  839.  
  840. >There's a big plaza at the center of the strip mall, mostly for people to relax and hang out
  841. >But today, there's a big stage set up with performing musicians, flyers all around detailing a lineup of performers throughout the afternoon
  842. >As you and Dash approach the stage you hear the sound of a banjo, ultimately cut off and concluded by a round of applause
  843. >The performer descends from the stage and comes directly towards you
  844. >"Hey y'all, long time no see!"
  845. >It's that friend of yours, Applejack
  846. >Remember her, the one with thee apples?
  847. >Yeah, her. It's her
  848. >Dash: "Hey AJ, it's been a while. What have you been up to lately?"
  849. >Applejack: "Well, lately me and Fluttershy have been..."
  850. >She stops and contemplates her next words
  851. >Applejack: "... heh, if I told you I reckon you wouldn't believe me"
  852. >You and Dash look at each other in confusion
  853. >Applejack: "So anyways, what brings you two lovebirds down here?"
  854. "Nothing, just came for the event. It was mostly Dashie's idea-"
  855. >Applejack: "-Dashie? Haven't heard that one in a while"
  856. >She throws her arm around Dash like a bro and laughs and Dash tries to change the subject
  857. >Dash: "I see you got the banjo back out. You put up your bass for good this time?"
  858. >Applejack: "Nah, I just missed the old thing. Why?"
  859. >Dash: "Just asking"
  860. >Applejack: "You're not thinking of getting the old band back together are you?"
  861. "Band?"
  862. >Dash makes a throat-cutting motion with her hand towards Applejack
  863. >Applejack: "Didn't you know? Me and Rainbow Dash used to have a band. I was on bass, Dash sang and played guitar"
  864. "Holy crap, how have I not heard about this?"
  865. >Dash: "Because we were never really that good. We played at the talent show, and it was kind of a disaster"
  866. "Damn, I wish I could have seen that"
  867. >Dash: "Trust me, you don't"
  868. "Still, seeing you performing on stage like that would have been pretty awesome"
  869. >Dash: "Well sorry, but the Rainbooms aren't getting back-"
  870. >Pinkie: "-You guys are getting the band back together!? It's about time!"
  871. "Where'd you come from?"
  872. >Dash: "Yeah, are you still following us?"
  873. "Still?"
  874. >Dash: "... It's a long story. So what are you doing here?"
  875. >Pinkie: "Are you kidding? This whole event is like one big giant dance party. I wouldn't miss it for the world!"
  876. >Dash: "Is Rarity here too?"
  877. >Pinkie: "Nah, she didn't want to come, something about the whole festival being 'uncultured' or something. But anyways, now would be the perfect time for the Rainbooms to make a comeback, what with the big musical showcase at school coming up"
  878. "Musical showcase?"
  879. >Pinkie: It's a big competition at the school where all the student musicians and bands can join in and showcase their skills. There's even a prize for the winner"
  880. "And anyone can join? No matter what kind of music?"
  881. >Pinkie: "Yup. We get everything from post-avant jazzcore to progressive dreamfunk. So what do you guys say, get the band back together?
  882. >Dash and AJ exchange glances
  883. >Applejack: "Well, what do you say? We were Canterlot's fourth most popular guitar-based folk duo"
  884. >Dash: "... Ah, what the hell, why not. I'm in"
  885. >Pinkie explodes into a fit of cheering
  886. >Pinkie: "WOOHOO!!! That's great! I'll go let everyone know, and I'll sign the Rainbooms up first thing on Monday. See ya then!"
  887. >Before she even finishes talking she runs off
  888. >Dash: "But if we're going to compete we're going to need a fuller band. I don't think the two of us can really make it on our own"
  889. >You'd offer to join the band and help out
  890. >Too bad you can't play any kind of music
  891.  
  892. >Pinkie ran off and AJ went home to see if she could still find her old bass, so you and Dash are left alone to enjoy the festival together
  893. >That is, until a familiar figure comes running out from one of the stores, calling out to you in her usually cheery voice
  894. >Cadence: "Hi Anon!"
  895. >Cadence is dressed as skimpy as ever, yet not in her regular work uniform. She's wearing a commemorative t shirt from the festival that's clearly two sizes too small
  896. >She pulls you both into a big hug, almost making certain that you're suffocating in her chest, letting you go just in time for you to hold consciousness
  897. >It's times like this that you're glad Dash is small
  898. >Cadence: "Haven't seen you two in a while. Congrats on winning princess"
  899. >She pinches Dash's cheek, like a mother would to a small child
  900. >Dash: "How'd you know"
  901. >Cadence: "Rarity and I keep in touch, she's been telling me all about you lately. And speaking of 'lately', where have you two been? Haven't seen either of you in forever"
  902. >Dash: "Sorry, we just haven't been down here in so long"
  903. >Cadence: "Well you're here now, why not stop by sometime. Shoot, I'll even give you a little discount on any purchase, today's special"
  904. >A thinly veiled shill for her own store
  905. >Nice try Cadence
  906. "Sounds good, maybe we'll stop by"
  907. >Cadence: "Alright, maybe see you two later!"
  908. >She runs off back to her store, the same perky bounce in her step she always has
  909. "... well?"
  910. >Dash: "Well what?"
  911. "You wanna go?"
  912. >Dash: "I don't know, I still have to get home and look for my old guitar, see if it still in good condition. Plus, it's getting kind of late already"
  913. "Yeah, you're right. We should probably get going"
  914. >The two start to leave
  915. >Dash: "... okay, maybe we could stop by really quick. I do want a few things"
  916. >Yup, you saw that coming
  917.  
  918. >After a quick stop at Cadence's Closet -okay, you were there for quite a while- Cadence give's Dash her personal cell phone number
  919. >She offers it to you too, so she can keep you updated on special offers and new inventory, and so you can keep her updated on your relationship (her words)
  920. >You turn her down, but then immediately change your mind
  921.  
  922. >Afterwards, you decide to walk Dash home
  923. >Standing on her porch illuminated by a single light by her door, you just now realize how dark it's gotten
  924. >You really should be getting home, but Dash won't let go of your hand
  925. >Not that you mind
  926. >She turns to face you, and takes your other hand
  927. >Dash: "So, umm... thanks for everything. These past few days, prom night, it was all really fun"
  928. "I thought so too"
  929. >Dash: "Except for the whole spaghetti thing"
  930. "Nah, that was pretty fun too"
  931. >She lets go of your hand just to bump you in the arm with her fist, really gently
  932. >Dash: "Come on, how was that anything but a disaster?"
  933. "I'm still here aren't I?"
  934. >Dash: "Well yeah but-"
  935. "Then there's nothing to argue about. I'm here, that's what matters"
  936. >Unable to think of a response, she leans into your chest
  937. >She looks up at you with those magenta eyes of hers and smiles
  938. >Not an excited smile, not a lewd smile... a calm smile. An "I'm just happy to be here right now" smile
  939. >Then, her eyes close
  940. >She slowly inches forward
  941. >You mirror her actions
  942. >Your arms wrapped around her
  943. >Her hands gently placed palms down on your chest
  944. >After what felt like an eternity, your lips meet
  945. >She pulls away just as slowly as she went into it
  946. >Dash: "... Nonny?"
  947. "Yeah Dashie?"
  948. >She giggles quietly
  949. >Dash: "Just wanted to hear you say it again"
  950. >Well, you walked right into that one
  951. >But it's no big deal really, especially if it makes her happy
  952. >She opens the door and heads inside, not breaking eye contact as the door slowly creaks shut
  953. >You wait on her porch for a moment before leaving
  954. >Just savoring the moment here
  955. >The next day
  956. >Monday
  957. >After a long, eventful weekend, things are finally back to normal
  958. >You wake up early, a little disappointed that Dash isn't there this time, and get ready for school
  959. >You still make it on time, and long before Dash
  960. >After waiting for a while, Rarity shows up
  961. >Rarity: "Morning Anon, how was your weekend?"
  962. "Eh, it was alright"
  963. >Rarity: "Anything interesting happen while Dash was-"
  964. "-Yes, we went out on a date"
  965. >Somehow, you knew she'd have found out by now
  966. >You're just thankful she hadn't heard about the spaghetti thing
  967. >Dash shows up shortly afterwards
  968. >She looks at Rarity. Rarity looks at her
  969. >Rarity: "I should probably get going, let you two have some privacy. Catch you later Anon"
  970. >She heads inside
  971. "What did she mean by 'letting us have our privacy'?"
  972. >Dash: "Long story"
  973.  
  974. >After biology, you and Rarity meet up with Dash as usual
  975. >This time, Applejack had the courtesy to join you
  976. "Wait, you mean to tell me this whole time you've had your before-lunch class right next door to us?"
  977. >AJ: "Yeah, I'm surprised y'all didn't notice before"
  978. >Neglecting a friend like that, way to be an asshole Anon
  979. >That's not the way your early childhood cartoons raised you
  980. >From across the cafeteria, you immediately notice something wrong
  981. "... guys, we've got a situation at our table"
  982. >Dash: "What do mean, what is- oh..."
  983. >There's someone already sitting at your table, alone. Someone you don't recognize
  984. >The girls seem to know what's going on
  985. "You guys know her?"
  986. >Dash: "Well... kind of. Remember how we told you about the Fall Formal being destroyed by a demon from another world, who then tried to turn the entire school into her own personal zombie slave army to take over an alternate universe?"
  987. "Yeah?"
  988. >Dash: "That's her"
  989. "What?!"
  990. >Dash: "Yup, in the flesh"
  991. >Hell, you don't care if she is a demon, she could be the Loch Ness monster and you wouldn't think twice
  992. >But she's invading your table
  993. >And that's just not right
  994. >Your inner Vlad senses are awakening, filling you with a primal desire to remove her
  995. >Dash: "Anyways, we were supposed to be looking out for her after the whole disaster, and we all agreed that it'd be best if she started sitting with us at lunch, you know. Getting used to being normal"
  996. >There's hardly anything normal about hanging with your group, but you'll allow it
  997. >For now at least
  998. >It's weird to think you're going to think you're going to be eating lunch with a demon from another world
  999. >But regardless, you all make your way to the table
  1000. >The new girl perks up when she sees the girls, and almost deflates when she sees you
  1001. >Already off to an awkward start
  1002. >Dash gently nudges you in the side, trying to get you to break the silence
  1003. "Hey there, I'm Anon"
  1004. >You put your hand out for a shake, but she just lifts her hand straight up in a half-assed wave
  1005. >"Sunset Shimmer. You can call me Sunset. Hi girls"
  1006. >That's about all she says as you all take your seats, you between Sunset and Dash
  1007. >Not long after Pinkie and Fluttershy show up too
  1008. >Pinkie: "Hey Sunny, glad to see you here today"
  1009. >Sunset: "Glad to see you too Pinkie Pie"
  1010. >Seems like you're the only one who hasn't gotten to know her
  1011. >Pinkie: "So Dash, what's the word on the band?"
  1012. >Sunset: "Band?"
  1013. >Rarity: "Oh great, not THIS again. I thought you were done for good"
  1014. >Dash: "Nope, we're going to be competing in the showcase. Speaking of which, when is it Pinkie?"
  1015. >Pinkie: "A couple weeks"
  1016. >Dash: "Good, we still got time. We still need more members if we're going to compete, there's no way we could do it on our own.... "
  1017. >They trail off on their discussion about the band, leaving you and Sunset as the only ones with no idea what they're talking about
  1018. >Sunset, or whatever her name is, seems to have that expression of someone who always has something to say, but never says it
  1019. >You might as well use this opportunity to get to know her better
  1020. "So... you always this quiet?"
  1021. >Sunset: "Huh?"
  1022. "Nothing"
  1023. >Well this is going well
  1024. >Sunset: "Oh, sorry, I'm not usually this quiet. Your name's Anon, right?"
  1025. "Yeah"
  1026. >Sunset: "Yeah, I remember you. You were prince of the Winter Ball with Dash, right?"
  1027. "Nope didn't win. I was supposed to, but I kind of missed it"
  1028. >Sunset: "Sorry, I didn't know"
  1029. "No big deal. It was a last second kind of thing at the dance"
  1030. >Sunset: "I didn't actually go to the dance"
  1031. "I know, Dash told me how you're ban-"
  1032. >Dash's elbow deliberately bumps into your ribs, cutting you off
  1033. >Apparently she's keeping an eye on your conversation as well
  1034. >Sunset seemed to notice
  1035. >Sunset: "I take it they told you not to talk about... me"
  1036. "I'm not very good at doing what I'm told"
  1037. >Sunset: "Well, relax, it's no big deal. I've gotten used to being THAT person. You know, the one who almost destroyed the school"
  1038. "Believe it or not, we've got a lot more in common than you think"
  1039. >Sunset: "Like?"
  1040. "You tried to bring up an entire army to take over the world. I hired a guy who nearly destroyed the cafeteria"
  1041. >Sunset: "One guy is hardly an army"
  1042. "You'd be surprised"
  1043. >She seems like an okay person
  1044. >You'll allow this girl in your group for now
  1045. >(Implying you're even the alpha dog in the group)
  1046. >Lunch ends and you all start heading to class
  1047. >Sunset walks with you and Dash, since her next class is in the same direction. On the way you catch a lot of awkward stares and whispers, but no one really makes a scene
  1048. >Sunset: "I've been getting that since I came in here today. This kind of thing comes with being the school monster"
  1049. >She stuffs her hands into her pockets and shifts her gaze to the ground
  1050. >Sunset: "Ugh, I'm never going to live this down"
  1051. >Dash: "Don't worry, you will"
  1052. "Yeah, this school goes through gossip like a machine gun. Don't let it get to you"
  1053. >You speak from experience
  1054. >Sunset: "It's not, I've learned to just ignore it"
  1055. >The expression on her face, the slight twitch of her eye, and the biting of her bottom lip say otherwise
  1056. >One person you pass by actually has the balls of a tough guy
  1057. >"Hey Sunset, you trying to get into Anon's harem too?"
  1058. >Her fists clench. Dash notices it as soon as you do
  1059. >Dash: "Sunset, you good?"
  1060. >She lets out a loud sigh and lets go of the tension in her hands
  1061. >Sunset: "Yeah, I'm fine. I've gotten better at controlling my temper and just letting things go-"
  1062. "-Then it's a good thing you've got a friend like me"
  1063. >You pat her on the back and turn your attention to the other guy
  1064. >"No wait, let me guess: you had to brainwash him to let you in"
  1065. "There's actually no room in my harem, your mom just took up the last spot"
  1066. >Yup, classic "your mom"
  1067. >Works every time
  1068. >"You want to say that to my face?"
  1069. >He steps forward, and Dash gets between you and him
  1070. >Sunset: "Guys, please, just forget-"
  1071. >Dash: "-You got something you want to say, you're saying it to the both of us"
  1072. >"Please, I could take the both of you down with my arms tied behind my-"
  1073. >*BANG*
  1074. >Sunset slams her fist on a locker, but the sound is almost snuffed out by the boom of her voice
  1075. >Sunset: "Everybody shut the fuck up!"
  1076. >Everyone not involved instantly floods out. Sunset aggressively pushes you and Dash aside, getting right into the other guy's face, her glare powerful enough to burn through a man's skull
  1077. >Sunset: "Listen here, mess with my friends and you're messing with me to, got it?"
  1078. >"Hey bro I was just-"
  1079. >Sunset: "Got it!?"
  1080. >He silently nods his head
  1081. >Sunset: "Good. Now get your ass out of here"
  1082. >He runs off down the hall, probably pissing himself
  1083. >Once he's gone, the hallway goes silent
  1084. >After a brief moment of silence, Sunset turns back around to you, once again looking down with her hands in her pockets
  1085. >She clears her throat, then speaks up
  1086. >Sunset: "... yeah, still need to work on controlling my temper"
  1087. >Note to self: Never piss off the new girl
  1088. >After silently agreeing to not talk about this incident ever again, you all head to your classes, eventually going your separate ways
  1089. >Once your alone, Dash pulls you over and quietly tells you something
  1090. >Dash: "Hey Nonny, just a reminder: we're trying to keep Sunset Shimmer OUT of trouble"
  1091. "I'll keep that in mind"
  1092. >No promises here though
  1093. >Causing drama is what you're best at
  1094.  
  1095. >History class
  1096. >As always, you and Dash push your desks together
  1097. >In doing so, you catch a small sparkle in the corner of your eye
  1098. >Behind your desks there's a bookshelf against the wall, and wedged between the shelf and the wall is something that clearly doesn't belong. Something shiny and metal
  1099. >And everyone knows there's nothing more distracting than a shiny object
  1100. >You immediately go over to inspect
  1101. >Dash: "What happened?"
  1102. "I think there's something down here"
  1103. >It's stuck in there pretty tight, but you manage to pull it out
  1104. >Dash: "What is it?"
  1105. "... I think you forgot something Friday night"
  1106. >A small metal flask with the initials 'PP' nicely engraved, and a smiley face crudely scratched in next to it
  1107. >Dash: "shit, I completely forgot about this"
  1108. >She brings her voice down to a whisper so as to not draw attention as she stuffs it into... your backpack
  1109. >then again, she does know you have Pinkie in your next class so it makes sense
  1110. "thank God no one found it until now"
  1111. >You each take your seats, and class goes on as normal
  1112. >... well not so normal
  1113. >Your mind is all over the place now
  1114. >More specifically, one place
  1115. >You whisper over to Rainbow Dash, who has her head down, looking like she's falling asleep
  1116. "hey Dashie, seeing that thing again got me thinking"
  1117. Dash: "about what?"
  1118. "you think these are the same desks as from prom night"
  1119. >She instantly picks her head up
  1120. >Apparently she had forgotten
  1121. >Dash: "they're not, mine had a wobbly leg that night"
  1122. >She shakes her desk; stable
  1123. >Dash: "see? it's different"
  1124. >So somewhere in this room is a pair of desks that you and Dash had sex on, and whoever is sitting at it is none the wiser
  1125. >You're not sure whether to laugh or feel bad for that person
  1126.  
  1127. >After class
  1128. >You're joined by Pinkie on the way to English
  1129. >You reach your classroom, with Dash's being right across the hall from yours
  1130. >Time for you to go your own way for now
  1131. >You give Dash a quick hug before going
  1132. "See you in gym"
  1133. >Dash: "See ya Nonny"
  1134. >You head into class, Pinkie following behind
  1135. >You take your seat, and Pinkie takes hers next to you
  1136. >She stares at you with a huge grin, like she's got a joke to tell but is trying not to prematurely laugh
  1137. >And knowing Pinkie that could very well be the case
  1138. >Or not
  1139. >There's really no predicting anything with this girl
  1140. >Pinkie: "So Nonny, care to explain?"
  1141. "Explain what?"
  1142. >Pinkie: "Looks like I'm not the only one calling you Nonny now"
  1143. "Oh yeah, she and I started doing that"
  1144. >Pinkie: "When we first met you spent a whole month saying not to call you Nonny, I thought you hated that name"
  1145. "And yet you still do it"
  1146. >Pinkie: "Well duh, it's fun. But what'd she have to do to get you to be okay with it?"
  1147. "Nothing... it's just cuter when she does it. Oh, and by the way, here you go"
  1148. >You hand her the flask, as discretely as possible
  1149. >Pinkie: "I was wondering where I'd lost this one. Did Dash still have it?"
  1150. "Nope, she left it in the classroom. Luckily I found it before anyone else"
  1151. >Pinkie lets out a loud, disappointed sigh
  1152. >Pinkie: "Should have known the good stuff was too strong for her..."
  1153.  
  1154. >After class you and Dash walk to gym together as usual
  1155. >Pinkie: "See ya tomorrow Nonny, bye Dashie-"
  1156. >Dash: "-Pinkie, what'd I say about calling me Dashie?"
  1157. >Pinkie: What? But Nonny does it all the time"
  1158. "... it's cute when he does it"
  1159.  
  1160. >Gym class
  1161. >You sit out on the bleachers as usual, finding some creative way to get yourself injured
  1162. >Not long later, Dash comes limping up to you, an expression of pain on her face
  1163. "Holy crap, what happened?"
  1164. >Dash: "I think I sprained my ankle pretty bad"
  1165. "Are you going to be okay?"
  1166. >She takes a seat next to you and her expression of pain goes away as she stretches out her legs to relax
  1167. >Dash: "I think I'll be fine" she says with a wink
  1168. >Holy shit
  1169. >Fooling the coach is one thing but she even managed to play you
  1170. "Damn Dashie, not bad"
  1171. >Dash: "Learned from the best"
  1172. >The two of you laugh at what a bad influence you've been on her
  1173. >Remember kids, habitual lying is no laughing matter
  1174. "So how's the band looking?"
  1175. >Dash: "Eh, still looking to expand. Rarity's joining on piano, and Fluttershy said she'd help out however she can. We still need a drummer though"
  1176. >You'd offer to help but you've got no musical talent whatsoever
  1177. >Maybe you could be a groupie or something
  1178. "And you're singing, right?"
  1179. >Dash: "Yup, and guitar... well I WAS on guitar anyways"
  1180. "What happened? Couldn't find it after all?"
  1181. >Dash: "Oh no, I found it, just not all in one piece. We're actually going down to the music store to find a new one. Want to come along?"
  1182. "Wish I could, but I've got an essay due in English tomorrow that I haven't even started yet"
  1183. >And you thought procrastinating was devoid of consequences
  1184. >Dash: "No worries, maybe next time"
  1185. >She looks like she's trying to hide her disappointment
  1186. >Way to go Anon
  1187.  
  1188. >Later that day, after school
  1189. >You're home alone working on that essay
  1190. >You've been in a slump for the past hour, but you finally think you've gotten into the groove of tings, and you start typing away
  1191. >*RIIIING*
  1192. >And there's your phone, the perfect distraction to ruin your train of thought
  1193. >It's a message from Dash
  1194. >"Sorry you couldn't make it, but check this out! Badass, isn't it?"
  1195. >Attached is an image, a selfie of her and her new guitar and what looks like a pair of wings attached to her back. Must be part of the new band costume or something
  1196. >Undeniably, it looks adorable on her
  1197. >You send her a quick reply, and then get right back to your essay
  1198. "The... "
  1199. >Good start
  1200. >Only 799 words to go
  1201.  
  1202. >The next day, Tuesday
  1203. >You barely got any sleep last night from working on that essay, but you got it done
  1204.  
  1205. >After biology, you meet up with the girls as usual
  1206. >Dash: "Umm... hey Nonny, wait up for a second"
  1207. "Huh?"
  1208. >Dash put her hand on your shoulder to stop you
  1209. "Is everything okay?"
  1210. >She looks over her shoulder at Applejack, who just shakes her head. She shifts her gaze to Rarity
  1211. >Rarity: "Oh no, you're not pinning this off on me"
  1212. >Dash: "Come on, a little help here"
  1213. >AJ: "You're the girlfriend, it's your business"
  1214. >Applejack pats Dash on the back before leaving with Rarity to the cafeteria, giving you and Dash some awkward alone time
  1215. >Dash:  "... so, umm... can you do me a little favor?"
  1216. "Yeah?"
  1217. >Dash: "Okay, so, you know I love you right Nonny?"
  1218. "Of course I do"
  1219. >And you also know that when a girl says those words, it's never followed by good news
  1220. >Dash: "Okay, so do you think that... maybe you could sit somewhere else at lunch for a while"
  1221. "... what?"
  1222. >Seriously, what?
  1223. >Dash: "I-It'd just be for a few days, I'll explain everything in due time I swear"
  1224. "And you can't explain now?"
  1225. >She starts rubbing her arm, idly staring at the ground
  1226. >Dash: "Well... look, I promise I'll make it up to you, it's just that we've got band things to discuss, and I kind of want to keep it secret. It's just for lunch, I swear"
  1227. "I get it, but why do you need to keep it a secret from me?"
  1228. >Dash: "Because... it's a surprise"
  1229. "What's a surprise?"
  1230. >Dash: "That's the secret. Come on, it's just for a few days, please?"
  1231. >She looks nervous enough to die right here and now
  1232. >You decide to just let it go. Like she said, it's only a few days, and it's just during lunch. Not like she's asking you to switch out of all her classes and move out of town
  1233. "Alright sure-"
  1234. >She tackles you hard enough to almost knock you over, swinging her arm tightly around you
  1235. >Dash: "Thank you so much Nonny, I swear it'll be worth it!"
  1236. >She happily plants a kiss on your cheek before running off
  1237. >Dash: "See you after lunch!"
  1238. >Well, looks like you've got to go back to your old table
  1239. >Not like you burned any bridges last time you sat there, right?
  1240.  
  1241. >In the cafeteria, there's a table for just about everyone: there's the jocks, the hippies, the nerds
  1242. >And then there's the 'other' table
  1243. >The table of all the average Joe's, the people who don't really stand out, the people who you'd forget after graduation
  1244. >The table you sat at before you started hanging with the girls
  1245. >After taking your seat, you look around the table, recognizing a few faces
  1246. >The 'other' table is actually two tables locked together making it the biggest sitting area in the cafeteria, and yet there's still always an available seat
  1247. >You take one last look back at the girls in time to catch Dash looking back at you
  1248. >...
  1249. >This is going to be a log few days
  1250.  
  1251. >Be Rainbow Dash
  1252. >You just got out of that awkward situation with Nonny
  1253. >You're glad he understood, but you still feel bad about it
  1254. >You plop your food tray down at the table
  1255. "Thanks a lot guys for leaving me alone back there"
  1256. >AJ: "Well what were we supposed to do?"
  1257. "I don't know, at least a little back up? I nearly died out there"
  1258. >AJ: "Yeah, but you didn't. Besides, this was your idea"
  1259. >Rarity: "And don't worry darling, once you reveal it he'll understand"
  1260. >You take one last look back at him sitting at the big table and catch him looking back at you
  1261. "Yeah... you're probably right"
  1262.  
  1263. >Gym class
  1264. >You sit out on the bleachers as usual, finding some creative way to get yourself injured
  1265. >Not long later, Dash comes limping up to you, an expression of pain on her face

  1362. "Yeah... you're probably right"
  1363. >You are Anon again
  1364. >After a bit of awkward but desired eye contact you carry on with the business at your table
  1365. >Sitting across from you is someone who looks familiar, but you've never seen her at the school before
  1366. >You try to wave to her to get her attention but she's so lost in her lunch like she's never eaten before
  1367. >You tap on the table in front of her to get her attention, which finally works
  1368. >"Hmm?"
  1369. "Sorry to interrupt, but you look familiar"
  1370. >She swallows the food in her mouth before responding
  1371. >"Couldn't be, I just transferred in today"
  1372. "Maybe I've seen you around town or something"
  1373. >"I dunno- wait a sec, weren't you at the big restaurant plaza the other day?"
  1374. "Yeah"
  1375. >"Oh my gosh, I recognize you, you're the spaghetti guy!"
  1376. >... shit
  1377. "You were at the restaurant"
  1378. >"Well, kinda. I was at the taco truck until the guys running it made me leave, and they threatened to call the cops if I didn't. I was just passing by and took a quick peek in the window and saw you. But dude, that was hilarious!"
  1379. >She bursts into laughter, regaining her composure to introduce herself
  1380. >"The name's Sonata, nice meeting ya"
  1381. "I'm Anon"
  1382. >You spend the rest of lunch listening to her laugh about an embarrassing story about you
  1383. >It's like Pinkie is still here with you
  1384. >When the bell signaling the end of lunch rang you weren't sure what to do
  1385. >You weren't sure if Dash was done with her secret business or not and you'd rather not interrupt, so you headed to class without her
  1386.  
  1387. >You got there a little while before Dash did
  1388. >Dash: "Sorry I'm late Nonny, things took a little longer than I thought. On the bright side I think I finally found myself a drummer"
  1389. "Who?"
  1390. >Dash: "Pinkie"
  1391. "Really? I didn't even know she could play"
  1392. >Dash: "Me either, but she's definitely got the energy of a drummer. Believe me, you're lucky you weren't at the table today. She was a hell of a lot more crazy than usual today"
  1393. >You instantly think back to that Sonata girl
  1394. "I think I know how you feel"
  1395.  
  1396. >After school that day, Dash had band practice, so you went along home
  1397. >By yourself
  1398. >It's only a few days... right?
  1399.  
  1400. >The next day, Wednesday, at lunch
  1401. >You had walked into the cafeteria with Dash and your friends as usual
  1402. >After getting your food you go your separate ways
  1403. >Dash: "Hey Nonny"
  1404. "Yeah, I get it, no big deal"
  1405. >Dash: "Thanks"
  1406. >The two of you hug, interrupted by a hard slap on the back
  1407. >Sonata: "Hey Anon, wassup"
  1408. "Oh hey Sonata"
  1409. >Thanks for interrupting
  1410. >You introduce her and Dash
  1411. >Dash: "Hey, weren't you at the restaurant plaza on Saturday?"
  1412. >Sonata: "Yeah, I was there. You must have been the girl with spaghetti guy over here"
  1413. >She points over at you
  1414. >Dash and you laugh
  1415. >Something about the way she brought it up makes the whole memory void of awkwardness
  1416. >Dash: "You were there too?"
  1417. >Sonata: "Nah, I'm not big on Italian food. That taco truck though, it's to die for"
  1418. >"Sonata! Come on!"
  1419. >Two girls walk by, one of them calling out to her
  1420. >Sonata rolls her eyes
  1421. >Sonata: "See ya later Anon, nice meeting you Dash"
  1422. >She heads off to get in line for her food with the other two girls
  1423. >Dash: "Hey Nonny, wait for me after lunch this time, alright"
  1424. >She gives you a quick kiss on the cheek, and you head your separate ways
  1425. >Not long after taking your seat, Sonata hurries over and sits across from you
  1426. >Sonata: "Hey Anon, sorry about that. Aria's not really the friendliest person around. So who was that, your girlfriend?"
  1427. "Yeah, why?"
  1428. >Sonata: "Just wondering. You two seem close"
  1429. "We are"
  1430. >Sonata: "I mean like, reeeeaally close"
  1431. "Yeah... sure"
  1432. >Just what the hell is she getting at?
  1433. >Sonata: "So then, how come you're not sitting with her now? Is something going on between you two?"
  1434. "No, she's just busy... why?"
  1435. >She starts fiddling with the small pendant around her neck
  1436. >Sonata: "No reason... just wondering"
  1437. >Those friends of hers come by and sit on either side of her
  1438. >They stare at her, then at you, before carrying on with lunch in silence
  1439. >Even Sonata goes quiet, the only time she's done so in the past two days you've know her
  1440. >Just dead, uncomfortable, silence
  1441.  
  1442. >After lunch you meet up with Dash by the doors of the cafeteria
  1443. >Dash: "So how was your lunch?"
  1444. "...interesting. So how's the band looking?"
  1445. >Dash: "Good, better than I expected. I think we're almost done"
  1446. "Done with... ?"
  1447. >Dash: "With the surprise"
  1448. >Damn. Still not telling you
  1449. >Dash: "Okay, I'll give you a hint but that's it"
  1450. >Better than nothing, score 1 for Anon
  1451. >Dash: "We're working on some new music, and I don't want you to hear it until it's perfect, you know?"
  1452. "Yeah, I get it"
  1453. >Dash: "Don't worry, we should be done tomorrow for sure. Then everything'll be back to normal"
  1454. "Sounds good"
  1455. >In truth you're relieved as all hell to hear that
  1456. >Sonata's pretty chill and all, but those friends of hers seem... off
  1457. "So what's the deal with Pinkie? Is she your drummer for sure?"
  1458. >Dash: "Yeah, you should see her. She's insane"
  1459. "I knew that, but how's she at drumming?"
  1460. >Very funny Anon
  1461. >History
  1462. >Once again, Dash is focused and taking notes
  1463. >Which is how you know she's up to something
  1464. >She's trying to cover up what she's writing, but you manage a peek over at her notebook
  1465. >It looks like poetry... or maybe song lyrics
  1466. >As soon as she catches you peeking she slides her notebook to the far end of her desk, leaning over it to cover it up
  1467. >Dash: "Nice try"
  1468. >Well you're not getting anywhere there
  1469.  
  1470. >Once again after school today, she's got band practice, so you head home
  1471.  
  1472. >Thursday morning before school
  1473. >While waiting for Dash as usual, you see her come up with her usual guitar case, but a second one in her other hand
  1474. "Hey Dash, carrying Applejack's guitar too?"
  1475. >Dash: "No, they're both mine"
  1476. "Why'd you bring two today?"
  1477. >Dash: "Because"
  1478. >You know that's the only answer she'll give you, so you accept it
  1479. "Need a little help?"
  1480. >Dash: "'Yeah sure"
  1481. >She hands you a case, and together you walk to the music room
  1482. >The two of you set the instruments in the corner of the room for the day, until it's time for practice
  1483. >Dash said it's safer and easier to leave them here rather than carrying them around
  1484. >Not long after, Rarity comes in carrying a similar case
  1485. >Rarity: "Oh hey Anon, didn't expect to see you here"
  1486. "I'm just helping Dash with these cases"
  1487. >Dash: "By the way Nonny, we've got band practice again today after school, you should stop by"
  1488. "What?"
  1489. >Rarity: "Yeah, what?"
  1490. >Dash: "I think he should come by and see what the wait was for"
  1491. >Rarity: "But Dash, are you sure it's ready?"
  1492. >Dash: "Of course it is. I've been practicing non-stop"
  1493. >Rarity: "Don't you mean we?"
  1494. >Dash: "Yeah, well, you know what I mean. So what do you say Nonny, want to come by?"
  1495. "Sure why not"
  1496. >You try to play it off cool. Truthfully you've been anticipating this since she brought it up
  1497.  
  1498. >Lunch time
  1499. >The last lunch you'll be spending alone
  1500. >And thank God for that
  1501. >Lunch time
  1502. >The last lunch you'll be spending alone
  1503. >And thank God for that
  1504. >As always you take your seat, later to be joined by your new friend
  1505. "Hey Sonata, how's it going?"
  1506. >Sonata: "Not bad, just tired. How about you?"
  1507. "I've been good"
  1508. >Sonata: "And Dash?"
  1509. "Yeah, she's fine. I'm actually going to meet her in the music room after school today, finally going to find out what she's been up to the past few days-"
  1510. >"Hey Sonata, who's your new friend?"
  1511. >The two girls from yesterday show up
  1512. "Hey there, I'm Anonym-"
  1513. >"-Did I ask you?"
  1514. >Sonata: "Ugh, why do you always have to be so rude Aria?"
  1515. >Aria: "Why do you have to be-"
  1516. >"-Knock it off, both of you"
  1517. >The poofy-haired one shuts them up, and her and Aria- pretty sure that's the other one's name, you've heard Sonata say it a few times- sit on either side of Sonata
  1518. >Poofy-hair: "Sorry about them, just ignore them"
  1519. >Sonata: "Don't tell him to ignore me, he's my friend-"
  1520. >Poofy-hair clasps her hand over Sonata's mouth
  1521. >Poofy-hair: "Anyways, I'm Adagio, you've already met Sonata, and she's Aria"
  1522. >Aria just trolls her eyes
  1523. "I'm Anonymous. Just call me Anon"
  1524. >Adagio: "Nice to meet you Anon"
  1525. >Adagio's smile seems friendly... and creepy
  1526. >Really, really creepy
  1527. >Adagio: "So is this your usual spot?"
  1528. "No, I usually sit somewhere else. My girlfriend's just working on some kind of surprise and asked for privacy, so I'm sitting here for a while"
  1529. >Adagio: "Sounds like the two of you are having some kind of trouble"
  1530. "Nah, we're fine. Sonata and I went through all this yesterday"
  1531. >Aria: "Doesn't sound fine to me"
  1532. >Adagio: "Knock it off Aria, they're surely doing okay. After all he said he's still meeting her... where was it, the music room?"
  1533. "Actually, no. We're meeting by the front of the school. We always walk home together"
  1534. >Yeah, you lied
  1535. >For some reason, you feel the need to keep these girls away from you and Dash
  1536. >You have enough people getting in your business with Dash as it is
  1537. >Adagio: "Well regardless, it's great that the two of you are still strong together"
  1538. >Adagio leans over the table, getting closer to you
  1539. >Adagio: "After all, we'd hate for anything to come between the two of you, wouldn't we?"
  1540. >If you thought her smile before was creepy, her expression now is horrifying
  1541. >It leaves you with a sick feeling in your gut
  1542. >She starts fingering the pendant around her neck, identical to the one Sonata has, and come to think of it, Aria too
  1543. >Out of the corners of your eyes you notice all of them doing the same as Adagio with theirs
  1544. >You silently nod
  1545. >Nothing would ever come between you and Dash... right?
  1546. >Adagio: "Good"
  1547. >Finally she backs away
  1548. >Adagio: "Come on girls, we should get going. There's a lot we have to do"
  1549. >Sonata: "But I haven't finished lunch-"
  1550. >Adagio: "-Bring it with you"
  1551. >Sonata: "... alright, fine. See ya later Anon"
  1552. >She picks up her tray and starts walking off
  1553. "Hey Sonata"
  1554. >Sonata: "Hmm?"
  1555. >You push your tray over to her
  1556. >That sick feeling in your gut doesn't seem to be going any time soon
  1557. >During gym, Dash took a page from your book and got injured to go to the nurse
  1558. >A.K.A. She sneaked off to the music room
  1559. >In all honesty you feel the need to see the nurse yourself, your stomach still felt upside down
  1560. >Regardless, after class you head straight to the music room
  1561.  
  1562. >Dash: "Hey Nonny, glad you made it!"
  1563. "Wouldn't miss it for anything"
  1564. >Not even this churning in your stomach
  1565. >Everyone is there, Dash and Applejack with their guitars, Pinkie on drums, Fluttershy holding a tambourine, and Rarity on, of all things, a keytar
  1566. >You never thought you'd say this, but... Based Rarity
  1567. >Sunset is sitting on the side, the only one not actually in the band, so you take a seat next to her
  1568. >Sunset: "Hey Anon, where've you been lately?"
  1569. "I've been sitting with the new girls, Sonata... Adagio, and..."
  1570. >You're drawing a complete blank on the other girl's name
  1571. >Sunset: "Aria?"
  1572. "Yeah, her. You know them?"
  1573. >Sunset: "I was supposed to show them around the school tomorrow, but I've never met them. What are they like?"
  1574. "... it's hard to say"
  1575. >As soon as the two of you quiet down, they get to practicing
  1576. >...
  1577. >It could be that you're just irritable from the stomachache, but maybe Rarity was right
  1578. >This music does need more work... a lot more
  1579. >Still, it's a hell of a lot better than you could ever do
  1580. >After getting through a few songs, Dash puts her guitar down
  1581. >Dash: "Tell you what guys, let's wrap up band practice a little early today"
  1582. >Pinkie: "Really? I was just starting to have fun"
  1583. >Applejack: "She probably just wants some alone time with her little Nonny over there"
  1584. >Dash doesn't deny it. No one does
  1585. >Regardless, they all agree to wrap up band practice early, and they all make their way out
  1586. >Just as you get up, she sits you back down
  1587. >Dash: "Hey Nonny, wait up a second"
  1588. >She gets up and grabs that second guitar case she brought with her today and opens it, pulling out an acoustic guitar
  1589. >She pulls up a chair facing you and sits down
  1590. >Dash: "So I've got this new song I wrote, and I want to know what you think. I admit it's not the usual kind of song I write, but... I don't know, I'm really feeling this one- whoa, you okay there Nonny?"
  1591. >She seems to have just now caught how sick you look
  1592. >You've been holding it in, but it's slowly feeling worse and worse
  1593. >But it's just a little longer, you assume you'll be fine
  1594. "Yeah, I'm good. Just go on Dashie, I've been waiting to hear this for a long time"
  1595. >She smiles, looking down at her guitar only to avoid embarrassing eye contact
  1596. >She strums the first chord of the song... and you lose it
  1597. >You fall out of the chair, clenching your stomach
  1598. >Dash: "Nonny, you okay!?"
  1599. >What you want to say: 'Don't worry Dashie, it's just a stomachache; I've been really eager to hear your music, and I hope this in no way insulted you'
  1600. >What you did say: 'BLARRRGHH'
  1601. >You throw up on the floor, and your vision goes black shortly after
  1602.  
  1603. >...
  1604. >You slowly open your eyes, awakening in Nurse Redheart's office
  1605. >Nurse: "You know what fascinates me? The one time, the ONLY time you're sick and should come down here, you don't"
  1606. "I had more important business"
  1607. >You slowly pick yourself up, feeling a little better
  1608. "Sorry about that Dashie, I really did want to hear your song"
  1609. >Dash: "Oh on, forget it Nonny. It' fine. You just worry about getting your rest"
  1610. >Nurse: "Whoa whoa whoa, you're not getting your rest here. I should have been home over an hour ago"
  1611. >Dash: "But Nurse, he's sick"
  1612. >Nurse: "And that's my fault?"
  1613. >She looks at you,struggling to stand up from the bed
  1614. >Nurse: "... alright, tell you what. Since you can't stay here, I'll drive you home. Come on"
  1615.  
  1616. >Redheart's car is parked on the far end of the parking lot
  1617. >When you finally reach her car, she unlocks it and opens the back door for you
  1618. >At first it you think she's actually being polite, opening the door for you and all, but then you catch her rolling a bunch of empty beer cans under the seat
  1619. "Are you sure you're okay to drive?"
  1620. >Nurse: "Better than you are to walk. Besides, those are from at least a few days ago"
  1621. >Wow, what a slob
  1622. >Dash gets in the front so she can give her directions, and though she doesn't say it, just in case you throw up again
  1623.  
  1624. >You unlock the door and invite the others in
  1625. >Nurse: "Damn kid, got your own place already?"
  1626. "Yeah"
  1627. >For some reason you feel a little more proud of it, like you just proved to Redheart that you're more of a man than she thought
  1628. >Nurse: "How the hell did you manage that?"
  1629. "My dad's a realtor, and he owns the place""
  1630. >Okay, so maybe you don't have that much to be proud of, but still
  1631. "He said so long as I keep my grades up and stay out of trouble I could stay here"
  1632. >Nurse: " 'Stay out of trouble' my ass, you're nothing but. But still, I have to admit, it's not half bad"
  1633. >He claims it's so you could "learn some responsibility", which is just his way of getting you out of the house
  1634. >But hey, you still have your own place nonetheless
  1635. >You sit down on the couch with the girls sitting on either side of you
  1636. "Thanks again for the ride Nurse Redheart"
  1637. >Dash: "Yeah, thanks, see you tomorrow at school-"
  1638. >Nurse: "Whoa, hold up. I'm not going anywhere just yet. You still have to tell me what happened"
  1639. "I thought that I wasn't your problem once school hours were over"
  1640. >Nurse: "That was before Dash had to drag you into my office half dead. And now that I'm here you're pretty much my responsibility whether I like it or not"
  1641. >You could always kick her out, this is YOUR place after all
  1642. >Theoretically, you could
  1643. >Realistically, she's here whether you like it or not
  1644. >She grabs your wrist to check your pulse
  1645. >Nurse: "So come on, what happened"
  1646. "I just wasn't feeling well, I'm fine now"
  1647. >Nurse: "When did it start?"
  1648. >She puts her hand to your forehead
  1649. "At lunch"
  1650. >Nurse: "Was it something you ate?"
  1651. "Not that I know of, I hardly ate anything"
  1652. >And if it was something you ate, Sonata is probably dead by now
  1653. >Nurse: "Well, you seem normal for now, so just take care of yourself alright?"
  1654. "Yeah, sure-"
  1655. >Nurse: "-I mean it kid. I don't want to see you getting any worse"
  1656. "I will, alright, I promise"
  1657. >She stares you in the eye, not so much threatening but more like a concerned mother
  1658. >Well, kind of a combination of the two
  1659. >She lets out a long sigh before getting up from the couch
  1660. >Nurse: "Good, you better"
  1661. >She makes her way to the door
  1662. >Nurse: "I should probably get going, it's already pretty late. You want a ride Dash?"
  1663. >Dash: "No, I think I'll stick around a little longer. Just to make sure-"
  1664. >Nurse: "-Yeah yeah, I don't need the details. I know what's happening as soon as I walk out that door. Just don't wear him out, remember he's not as fit as you"
  1665. >She hesitates, giving you one last look before heading out the door
  1666. >Nurse: "Oh, and Anon? Now I know where you live"
  1667. >It's hard to tell if that was a threat or not
  1668. >But you'll assume that it was
  1669. >Once she's gone, Dash pats her legs inviting you to lie down
  1670. >You lay your head in her lap, which is more comfortable than you thought
  1671. >Dash: "You feeling better?"
  1672. "Mostly"
  1673. >Dash: "What happened to you anyways? Do you remember?"
  1674. "No idea. I was feeling bad for a while, and when you started playing I just completely lost it. No offense by the way, you're a great singer, and the band's coming along nicely too. It just came up out of nowhere. I wish I could have heard that last song in full"
  1675. >Dash: "If I hadn't left my guitar at school I could have played it for you now"
  1676. >She sighs
  1677. >Dash: "Damn it, and I was really looking forward to playing it for you"
  1678. >She's not really trying to guilt trip you, but it's happening anyways
  1679. "Sorry I kind of ruined everything"
  1680. >Dash: "Relax Nonny, it's not ruined, jut postponed for a bit"
  1681. >She pats you on the head
  1682. >Dash: "Besides, it's not like I'd let something like this come between us"
  1683. >Adagio's voice echoed in your head... "We'd hate for anything to come between the two of you, wouldn't we"
  1684. >Damn it
  1685. "Hey Dashie... you remember Sonata, right?"
  1686. >Dash: "You mean that girl you were sitting with these past few days? What about her?"
  1687. "I was just wondering what kind of impression you got from her"
  1688. >Dash: "I dunno, she seemed friendly"
  1689. "Did you get a chance to meet her friends?"
  1690. >Dash: "Nu uh, why?"
  1691. "No reason, they just seemed... weird"
  1692. >Dash: "How weird?"
  1693. "Hard to say"
  1694. >Dash: "Is one of them trying to steal my Nonny?"
  1695. >She says it as a joke, but there's always a hint of seriousness when a girl says that
  1696. >You reach up and gently stroke her cheek
  1697. "Don't worry Dash, I'm still yours"
  1698.  
  1699. >Friday
  1700. >You're feeling better, no stomach issues today
  1701. >But just in case, you stop by the local drugstore on your way to school and bought a bottle of Tums
  1702.  
  1703. >You get to Biology
  1704. >You take your seat
  1705. >Immediately it begins
  1706. >Rarity: "So, how was it?"
  1707. >You know what she means
  1708. >You pretend that you don't
  1709. "You mean the band? You guys sound better than I expected"
  1710. >Rarity: "I mean the song Dash wrote for you"
  1711. "I know what you mean"
  1712. >She rolls her eyes. Clearly she should have saw that coming
  1713. >Rarity: "So then how was the song? She wouldn't play it in front of us, not even to practice, so I have no idea what it sounds like"
  1714. "I didn't get to hear it either"
  1715. >Rarity: "Huh? Why not?"
  1716. "... long story"
  1717. >Rarity: "Let me guess, she was going to play but you ended up doing 'something else' instead"
  1718. >She makes air quotes when she says 'something else'
  1719. "What do you mean by 'something else'?"
  1720. >You mimic her air quotes
  1721. >Rarity: "You know exactly what I mean"
  1722. "Alright fine. I should start off by saying that there was a hell of a mess for the janitor to clean up-"
  1723. >Rarity: "-Okay okay, just stop me before you ruin the music room for me and make me want to skip out of band practice today"
  1724. >She immediately goes back to her work
  1725. >What she doesn't know is that she'd be probably be more grossed out by knowing what really happened than what she's probably thinking happened
  1726.  
  1727. >You're focused on school work when someone comes in with a note from the principal's office
  1728. >It's for you
  1729. >That can't be good
  1730. >Rarity: "What's that for Anon?"
  1731. >You look over the note
  1732. "... It says Nurse Redheart needs to see me immediately"
  1733. >You hurry over to the nurse's office
  1734. >Nurse: "Oh hey, you were quick"
  1735. "The note said to come down here immediately, is there some kind of emergency"
  1736. >Nurse: "Well there's no emergency. I just wanted to make sure you were okay today. You were still half dead when I left yesterday"
  1737. "Seriously? That's it?"
  1738. >She silently nods
  1739. "Well then yeah, I feel fine. If that's all I'm going back to class"
  1740. >You start to make your way out but she grabs your hand
  1741. "What? I told you I'm fine"
  1742. >Nurse: "And you expect me to believe a word you say? Sit down"
  1743. >She's not letting you go, so you might as well get this over with
  1744. >She does all the typical stuff
  1745. >She checks your temperature
  1746. >She checks your pulse
  1747. >She even breaks out the old stethoscope, which gets a chuckle out of you
  1748. >Nurse: "What's so funny?"
  1749. "Nothing. It's just cute how you think you're an actual doctor"
  1750. >She doesn't respond
  1751. >Then again, you really shouldn't be talking to her like that now that she knows where you live
  1752.  
  1753. >Once she concludes that there's nothing physically wrong with you, aside from a couple of her usual petty insults thrown your way, she sends you on your way
  1754. >You are on your way back to class, hurrying down the hall
  1755. >You're not really paying attention to where you're going
  1756. >*BAM*
  1757. >And apparently neither is the person you just walked right into
  1758. >Sunset: "Ugh... "
  1759. >She starts rubbing her forehead, and she looks pissed
  1760. >Sunset: "Damn it, you moron! Would it kill you to watch where the hell you're going! ... Oh, hey Anon"
  1761. >She seems to get embarrassed as soon as she realizes it's you
  1762. >You help her up, and she brushes herself off
  1763. "You okay?"
  1764. >Sunset: "Yeah, you?"
  1765. "I've had worse. So what's got you in such a hurry?"
  1766. >Sunset: "I was just showing the new girls around a few minutes ago, but then they took off out of nowhere. Did you see them come by?"
  1767. "Nu uh"
  1768. >Sunset: "Damn..."
  1769. "But now that you mention it, what did you think of them"
  1770. >Sunset: "The new girls? They were... well, they were different"
  1771. "So I'm not the only one who thinks so"
  1772. >Sunset: "Yeah, it's like there's always something they're not saying but want to... do you think someone already told them about us?"
  1773. "What about us?"
  1774. >Sunset: "About me being a demon from another world, and about you being in with the mafia"
  1775. >Oh yeah, that stuff
  1776. "Sonata told me they just transferred in. I doubt they already-"
  1777. >*RIIIING*
  1778. >The bell cuts you off before this conversation before it could go any further
  1779. >Sunset: "Isn't that the lunch bell?"
  1780. "Yeah. I usually meet Dash and Applejack after class, I'm going to try to catch up with them"
  1781. >Sunset: "Care if I tag along?"
  1782. "Not at all"
  1783. >The two of you hurry back to your class
  1784. >Sunset: "Oh, and can I ask you for one last favor?"
  1785. "Sure"
  1786. >Sunset: "About me getting pissed off back there... you know, losing my temper and all"
  1787. "Don't worry, I'll keep it between us"
  1788. >You catch Dash, Rarity, and Applejack on their way to the cafeteria
  1789. >Thank God Rarity has your backpack, you didn't even realize you'd forgotten it
  1790. >Dash: "Nonny, there you are! Rarity told me you went to the nurse's office, is everything okay?"
  1791. "Yeah, she just wanted to check on me, make sure I was okay after yesterday"
  1792. >Rarity: "Are either of you going to tell me what happened"
  1793. >Dash: "Do you really want to know?"
  1794. >Even Dash knows how to handle Rarity now
  1795. >You've taught her well
  1796.  
  1797. >You get to the cafeteria, a good deal later than usual
  1798. >Even now, Sonata and her friends haven't shown yet
  1799. >Applejack: "Seriously Anon, if ya wanna sit there again we won't judge"
  1800. "Nice try. You're not getting rid of me that easily"
  1801. >Still though, you do wonder what the deal with them is
  1802. >As you take our seats, the girls immediately turn to Sunset, asking about Sonata's gang
  1803. >She looks at you, and you return the gaze
  1804. >You both have the same thought going through your heads
  1805. >"How the hell do I explain this"
  1806. >The best explanation that she can give is that they're "kind of off"
  1807. >Not that you could say much better
  1808. >*BANG*
  1809. >The conversation is interrupted by the slam of the cafeteria doors
  1810. >But not closed... they were bursting open
  1811. >A gentle hum starts to echo through the cafeteria, which at this point has fallen silent
  1812. >All attention turns to the source...
  1813. >Sonata and her friends
  1814. >Quite the dramatic entrance
  1815. >Then, to your surprise, music starts playing from the intercom, and the poofy-haired one- Adagio, if you recall correctly- starts singing
  1816. "Hey Dash, is there another dance thing going on?"
  1817. >Dash: "Nu uh... not that I know of. Pinkie?"
  1818. >Pinkie: "Nope. I'm as stumped as you guys"
  1819. >The continue on with their spontaneous music number
  1820.  
  1821. >The crowd gets riled up
  1822. >The energy of the room is building
  1823. >...
  1824. >You feel the it getting to you
  1825. >The new girls come to the end of their song
  1826. >You had no idea Sonata and her friends even sang, but the fact that they would go so far as to challenge the whole school to a battle of the bands..
  1827. >And in a song no less
  1828. >Now that's cheeky
  1829. >The cafeteria was left in chaos, and Sonata's gang is basking in the moment
  1830. >The crowd looks like they belong at a concert for some edgy metal band you outgrew in middle school
  1831. >Everyone but your friends is going crazy
  1832. >Once again you feel sick to your stomach
  1833. >Dash: "A battle of the bands?"
  1834. >Pinkie: "They can't change the musical showcase like that! It ruins the whole idea!"
  1835. >Dash: "You're not going to let them do it, are you?"
  1836. >Applejack: "Are you hearin' that crowd? It may be out of your hands"
  1837. >None of them seem as excited as the rest of the students
  1838. >Dash: "Hey girls... "
  1839. >Dash directs everyone's attention towards you, now hunched over and clutching your gut
  1840. >Applejack: "You okay there Anon?"
  1841. >"Don't you know that if you ever have to ask that then the answer is no"
  1842. >Is what you want to say
  1843. >But you know it's just the pain talking, so you bite your tongue and hold back the sass
  1844. "Not really"
  1845. >Dash: "Do you need to see the nurse?"
  1846. "... yeah, I think so"
  1847. >You get up and, accompanied by Dash, you start head across the cafeteria
  1848. >"Anonymous! Good seeing you again!"
  1849. >From amongst the commotion a hand reaches out and grabs you, and it takes you a moment to find just who it was
  1850. >The creepy one
  1851. "Not now Aria"
  1852. >Adagio: "Actually I'm Adagio"
  1853. >Oh right, Adagio was the creepy one
  1854. >Not your fault, you're not thinking straight
  1855. >Dash: "Look, now's not a good time, alright- hey, weren't you one of the girls singing?"
  1856. >Adagio: "That's right, I'm with the Dazzlings"
  1857. >Not the name you would have chosen, but okay
  1858. >Adagio: "Are you two leaving so soon?"
  1859. >Dash: "I said now's not a good time"
  1860. "A horrible time"
  1861. >Adagio: "What's the matter? Are you sick again?"
  1862. >She's looking you in the eye again, that same smile on her face as before
  1863. >Like she's looking into your soul
  1864. >Fuck it
  1865. >You jerk your arm free and run off as fast as you can
  1866. >Dash: "Nonny, wait!"
  1867. >Adagio: "Damn it, still nothing..."
  1868. >You ignore the both of them, hauling your ass out of there
  1869.  
  1870. >You know you can't make it all the way to the nurse's office
  1871. >Just like you know you can't hold down your stomach contents
  1872. >So you head straight to the bathroom
  1873.  
  1874. >Once you've finished emptying the contents of your stomach, you wait around in the stall for a minute just in case
  1875. >You weren't really self-conscious about it until you hear someone else enter the room
  1876. >The person comes straight to your stall and knocks, and a voice you really should be more surprised to hear in the men's bathroom calls out
  1877. >Pinkie: "Nonny? You okay"
  1878. "Yeah, I'm fine now. I think"
  1879. >Pinkie: "The other girls went to the nurse's office looking for you, but somehow I knew you'd be here"
  1880. >You stumble out of the stall
  1881. >Pinkie: "Come on, I'll help you over there"
  1882. >She puts her arm around you for support, and you lean on her as you shamelessly walkout of the bathroom together and head to Redheart's office
  1883. >Nurse: "God damn it not again. What the hell is up with you!"
  1884. >Redheart helps you lay down with a gentleness that doesn't match the tone of her voice
  1885. >The girls are there for you; thankfully, it's just your friends, none of those Dazzlers, or Dazzlings, or whatever they're called
  1886. "I don't know-"
  1887. >Nurse: "-Oh no, we're not doing this crap again. Tell me what happened, and tell me now"
  1888. >She wheels her chair over to block the door
  1889. >Nurse: "I'm not letting any of you out until I get an answer, so someone talk"
  1890. >She looks directly at you, making sure you know you're on the spot
  1891. >Thankfully, Dash saves your ass
  1892. >Dash: "We were just sitting at lunch, and again, out of nowhere he got sick"
  1893. >Nurse: "Anything unusual happen before?"
  1894. >Dash: "Nothing, aside from the Dazzlings"
  1895. >Nurse: "Who?"
  1896. >Dash: "The new girls. They came in and started singing, and that's when he got sick"
  1897. >Nurse: "Singing, huh? Weren't you at their band practice when you threw up last time?"
  1898. >Rarity: "You what"
  1899. "Yup, that's what happened. I puked in the music room"
  1900. >She seems mildly disgusted, probably not enough to be skipping band practice
  1901. >Nurse: "Anon, do you get migraines?"
  1902. "No, why?"
  1903. >Nurse: "Sometimes people with chronic migraines are overly sensitive to sound. Listening to constant loud music could have set you off"
  1904. "Sounds more like a hangover to me"
  1905. >Nurse: "Is that it?"
  1906. >You give her a "are you serious?" look
  1907. >... okay, she is serious
  1908. "No, I don't have a hangover. It's probably just the stomach flu or something"
  1909. >Nurse: "If that were the case, you wouldn't have felt so fine this morning"
  1910. "Then what else could it be?"
  1911. >Sunset: "Weren't you sitting with those Dazzling girls yesterday too?"
  1912. "Yeah, why?"
  1913. >Sunset: "... nothing"
  1914. >There's something on her mind that she's not saying
  1915. >Redheart: "Well regardless, you should stick around for a bit Anon. At least until you're feeling okay. I'll get something for your stomach"
  1916. "Don't, I've got stuff in my backpack"
  1917. >Once again, Rarity saved your backpack
  1918. >You open it and take out the bottle of Tums from the front pocket of your backpack-
  1919. >...
  1920. "Hey Rarity, were you watching my bag the whole time?"
  1921. >Rarity: "Not the whole time, but for the most part. Why, are you missing something?"
  1922. "... no, never mind. I found it"
  1923. >You pretended to look for something for a moment
  1924. >Nurse: "You should head back to class before your all late. I'll keep an eye on him"
  1925. >Dash: "I can stay behind too if you want-"
  1926. "-Don't"
  1927. >She seems surprised, almost shocked
  1928. "Go ahead and go, I'll be fine"
  1929. >Dash: "You sure?"
  1930. "Don't worry Dashie, I'll be okay"
  1931. >Skeptically, she sighs and kisses you on the forehead
  1932. >Dash: "I'll come back and check on you after class, alright"
  1933. "I'll be waiting"
  1934. >Applejack: "Come on y'all, he probably needs his rest"
  1935. >They all head out
  1936. >Just as you'd expect, Dash is the last one lingering behind
  1937. >Redheart carries on with some paperwork, and you pull the privacy curtain aside
  1938. >Once you're concealed, you open up the front pocket of you bag, and pull out a white envelope with your name scribbled on the front
  1939. >You found it earlier while looking for the Tums and it threw you off
  1940. >Inside the envelope is a folded up paper with a message written inside
  1941. >There's no name or signature, just the message
  1942. >"Sonata and her sisters are trouble. Stay away from them"
  1943. >To whoever wrote that note: No freaking duh
  1944. >Obviously all of your friends know that
  1945. >Which means that there's someone else out there who knows that the Dazzlings are up to no good
  1946. >For now, you crumple up the note and stuff it in your pocket
  1947. >You are still a little queasy, so you close your eyes to get some needed rest
  1948. >...
  1949.  
  1950. >...
  1951. >Upon waking you feel a big pressure in your gut
  1952. >You don't feel anything coming up, not even a dry heave
  1953. >Then, you realize the pressure's coming from outside your body
  1954. >Dash is on her knees beside the bed, resting her head on you and using your body as a pillow
  1955. >She seems to catch you as soon as you wake
  1956. >Dash: "Hey, how you feeling?"
  1957. "Fine. Is class over already?"
  1958. >Dash: "Yeah, I came in just a second ago to check on you-"
  1959. >Nurse: "-Bullshit"
  1960. >Nurse Redheart pulls the curtain aside
  1961. >Nurse: "She came back like, five minutes after she left, claiming she wasn't feeling well"
  1962. "Seriously?"
  1963. >Dash: "Of course not!"
  1964. >Nurse: "I tried to get her to leave but she said she wouldn't leave your side until you woke up. She's way too worried about you"
  1965. >Dash: "Am not!"
  1966. >Dash's face flushes bright red
  1967. >Redheart is getting her worked up in a way you haven't done in a long time
  1968. >Nurse: "You should have seen her a minute ago Anon, she was crying that you wouldn't ever wake up"
  1969. >Dash: "Wh-what? Nonny, you don't believe her do you?"
  1970. >Now that you know for sure is bull
  1971. >... but screw it, you can't resist
  1972. "Your eyes are still watering"
  1973. >Dash: "B-But I wasn't even... you're screwing with me aren't you?"
  1974.  
  1975. >Nurse Redheart bursts into laughter
  1976. >Nurse: "Damn Anon, now I get why you keep her around"
  1977. >She teasingly pinches Dash's cheek
  1978. >Nurse: "Relax kid, we're just messing with you. We both know you weren't really crying"
  1979. >Dash: "And that other stuff didn't happen either!"
  1980. >Nurse: "Yeah, sure, whatever you say. Anyways, you're almost late for your next class. Take this before you go"
  1981. >She hands you a piece of paper
  1982. "What's this?"
  1983. >Nurse: "It's to get you out of gym for a while. I think you actually should be sitting out for once, at least for a while"
  1984. >The note details your stomach issues over the past couple of days, with her signature at the bottom
  1985. "Really? I didn't lose a toe this time?"
  1986. >Nurse: "It was either that or herpes"
  1987. >She's not as good at excuses as you are, but to her credit no one would really question her
  1988. >You stuff the note in your pocket and leave the office
  1989. >Dash: "Just for the record, I wasn't really crying over you"
  1990. "I know, I was just messing with you"
  1991. >Looking back, maybe you did take it just a bit too far
  1992. "You're not mad, are you?"
  1993. >Dash: "Of course not Nonny, but... I have been a little worried lately"
  1994. >She gently punches your arm
  1995. >Once again, something she hasn't done in a long time
  1996. >Something you've missed
  1997. >Dash: "And trust me, when I'm mad you'll know"
  1998. >Well that's... reassuring
  1999. >Maybe
  2000.  
  2001. >Gym class
  2002. "Hey coach, I have to sit out today"
  2003. >Coach: "What is it this time?"
  2004. >You reach in your pocket and pull out the paper, handing it to him
  2005. >Coach: "... 'Sonata and her sister are trouble'? What's this?"
  2006. >Crap
  2007. >You shouldn't have put both of them in the same pocket
  2008. >You quickly fish out the other note and trade them off
  2009. >Coach: "... Stomach issues huh? Alright, go on"
  2010. >He holds on to the note from the nurse while you stuff the one about the Dazzlings back into your pocket
  2011. >You feel like you should hold onto it just in case... hell if you know, but anything could happen
  2012. >But you've got to be a little more careful with it
  2013. >Especially if you're going to continue keeping it a secret
  2014.  
  2015. >Dash insisted on skipping band practice and walking you home, but you assured her that you'd be fine
  2016. >And for the rest of the day, you were fine
  2017. >In fact, you were fine for the rest of the weekend
  2018.  
  2019. >Monday
  2020. >You decided it's best to leave that note pinned on the fridge
  2021. >It's more of a mini-fridge really, but it came with the place
  2022. >The note in itself isn't exactly fridge-worthy work, but you've never aced a test and you don't have any kids with shitty arts and crafts projects, so it's better than nothing
  2023.  
  2024. >As soon as Dash sees you waiting for her in front of the school, she asks if you are okay
  2025. >You assure her that you are
  2026.  
  2027. >In Biology
  2028. >As soon as rarity sees you in your seat, she asks if you are okay
  2029. >You assure her that you are
  2030.  
  2031. >At lunch
  2032. >As soon as you sit down at the table, you assure everyone that you are okay before they even ask
  2033. >At least you've got friends that care
  2034.  
  2035. >You go all day without throwing up
  2036. >That's a win as far as you're concerned
  2037.  
  2038. >Tuesday
  2039. >Lunch time
  2040. >To your surprise, Pinkie is the last one at the table, and she is irritable
  2041. "What's the matter Pinkie?"
  2042. >She pulls out a piece of paper
  2043. >Pinkie: "THIS is the matter"
  2044. >It's a flyer, one that looks a lot like her old flyer for the musical showcase, but with the title replaced with "Battle of the Bands"
  2045. >Pinkie: "And I'm guessing you all know who's behind this one. Nonny, you're friends with one of them right? Can't you try and talk to her or something?"
  2046. >Sunset: "I don't know Pinkie, those girls seem like trouble. If anything we should be staying away from them"
  2047. >... nearly a direct quote
  2048. >Still, you have to be sure
  2049. "When I spoke to Sonata by herself, she seemed normal. It's those sisters of hers that seem to cause trouble"
  2050. >Sunset: "They're sisters? I thought they were just friends"
  2051. >... the note specifically said 'Sonata and her sisters'
  2052. >So much for that lead
  2053. "Anyways, Pinkie's right. I should at least try to talk to her about all this. Maybe she can talk some sense into them"
  2054. >Applejack: "Speak of the devil"
  2055. >Applejack turns your attention across the cafeteria, where the Dazzlings just took their seats at the big table
  2056. "I guess there's never a better time than now"
  2057. >Dash: "Hang on, I'm coming with"
  2058. >She joins you as you get up to head towards them
  2059.  
  2060. >Sonata: "Anon? What are you doing here?
  2061. >Aria: "Yeah Ass-non, what are you doing here?"
  2062. >That's actually the first time you've heard that one
  2063. >Clever
  2064. "Look, we need to talk about last week"
  2065. >Adagio: "You weren't in the mood to talk then"
  2066. "Yeah, I'd been sick the past few days"
  2067. >Sonata: "Really? Are you-"
  2068. "-Yes, I'm fine. That's aside from the point. You need to call off the whole 'Battle of the Bands' thing"
  2069. >Adagio: "Call it off? We didn't even start it. We just took the musical showcase and spiced it up"
  2070. "I know, and Pinkie Pie's not cool with it. It kind of ruins the whole idea of the showcase"
  2071. >Dash: "It's supposed to be a fun event, not a hardcore competition"
  2072. >Adagio: "... I see what the problem is here. You don't think you and your band can hold up to the competition"
  2073. >Dash: "I'm saying there shouldn't be any competition at all"
  2074. >"Of course you'd say that"
  2075. >One of the other girls sitting at the table calls out
  2076. >You don't really know her but you've met her; she's the one you always run into at the vending machine
  2077. >Trixie was her name, if you recall correctly
  2078. >Dash: "Excuse me?"
  2079. >Trixie: "Admit it; you're scared of the competition"
  2080. >Dash: "As if. You think I'm really-"
  2081. >You stop her before she escalates things any further
  2082. >Dash: "Look, all I'm saying is that this isn't the best idea"
  2083. >Another familiar, more annoying voice speaks up
  2084. >Snips: "And what do you know about good ideas?"
  2085. >Snails: "Yeah, what do YOU know?"
  2086. >Adagio: "Well well well, look like majority rules. The Battle of the Bands is on"
  2087. >She and the other girls get up from their seats and leave
  2088. >On her way out, Adagio walks past Trixie, caresses her face and whispers something in her ear
  2089. >Aria does the same to Snips and, after a stare from the others, Sonata does to Snails
  2090. >The table gets more rowdy with excitement, and you and Dash make your way out before things get any worse
  2091.  
  2092. >Applejack: "Nothing, huh?"
  2093. "Nope, it's like they didn't hear a word we said"
  2094. >Pinkie: "What did you tell them?"
  2095. >Back at your table you and Dash describe the situation- everything, even the little whisper at the end
  2096. >Sunset, once again, looks troubled
  2097. "You know something Sunset?"
  2098. >Pinkie: "Come on Sunny, let it out"
  2099. >Sunset: "... I'm not sure. I'll get back with you on that"
  2100. >She gets up and leaves, despite lunch being just about half over
  2101. >Applejack: "Okay, am I the only one not sure if she can be trusted"
  2102. >No one speaks up, but they all seem to silently agree
  2103. >But not you
  2104. "Give her time, she might know something we don't"
  2105. >Dash: "If she knew something why doesn't she just tell us?"
  2106. "Sometimes you need to be absolutely sure before you say anything"
  2107. >They all accept your answer; they may not agree but they accept it
  2108.  
  2109. >After lunch you and Dash start heading to history
  2110. "Hold up, I think my textbook is in my locker"
  2111. >Dash: "Alright, I'll meet you in class"
  2112. >You hurry off to get your book
  2113.  
  2114. >You open your locker
  2115. >You take out your book
  2116. >You see another envelope fall out
  2117. >... another one, looking just like the last one
  2118. >You take it and, after making sure no one's around (maybe you're a little too paranoid, but what the hell) you read the note
  2119. >"Quit the band"
  2120. >... motherfucker
  2121. >It's one thing to sneak into your backpack while you're in the bathroom throwing up, but to actually come to your locker...
  2122. >You're sure this won't be the last one, and you've got nothing to lose
  2123. >You tear a page out of your notebook and write down "I'm not in the band"
  2124. >You fold it up and write "Whoever You Are" on the outside, and leave it right in the middle of your locker, where it's sure to be seen
  2125. >Thinking you can actually respond to this person is admittedly stupid and irrational
  2126. >But there is nothing about this situation that isn't
  2127.  
  2128. >You get to class a few minutes after the bell
  2129. >Dash: "What took you so long?"
  2130. "Nothing, I just walk slowly"
  2131.  
  2132. >After school, you meet up with Dash outside the locker rooms as usual
  2133. >Dash: "So are you coming?"
  2134. "To what, band practice?"
  2135. >Dash: "Didn't you get the message?"
  2136. >...
  2137. >Oh
  2138. >Shit
  2139. "So you know?"
  2140. >Dash: "Yeah, she sent it to all of us"
  2141. "Who sent it?"
  2142. >Dash: "Sunset, did you not get her text?"
  2143. "... okay, back up. I'm missing something here"
  2144. >Dash: "Sunset sent out a mass text for us to meet her by her locker after school"
  2145. >... never mind
  2146. >Dash: "Wait, did you ever actually give her your number?"
  2147. "Nu uh"
  2148. >Dash: "That explains it. Now that you know, you might as well come along, I'm sure she meant for you to come too"
  2149. "Yeah... sure"
  2150.  
  2151. >You meet the girls at Sunset's locker
  2152. >Sunset: "Okay, so something's been bugging me about the Dazzlings since I first met. There's something... different about them"
  2153. >Dash: "Are you saying what I think you're saying?"
  2154. >Sunset: "Yup, I think they're from my world"
  2155. >This kind of thing should really come as more of a shock to you
  2156. >But lately, otherworldly creatures seem to be the norm around here
  2157. >She opens her locker and pulls out a fancy looking book
  2158. >Sunset: "This book is magic, I can use it to communicate with the world I came from"
  2159. >Great, you're dealing with otherworldly creatures and an inter-dimensional transmitter communication device
  2160. >Yup, your friend is an alien
  2161.  
  2162. >After writing... something in the book, she stuffs it back into her locker and leads you all outside to the front steps of the school by the big statue
  2163. "So what exactly are we waiting for?"
  2164. >Sunset: "Hard to say. Don't worry, it'll all make sense in a moment"
  2165. >You seem to be the only one out of the loop, so you wait
  2166. >... and wait
  2167. >... and wait some more
  2168. >Long after school hours, the sun had already started to set
  2169. >Pinkie helped you break into the school to grab dinner from the vending machines
  2170.  
  2171. >After enjoying a lovely art-school dinner, you wait some more
  2172. "... yeah, this all makes sense"
  2173. >Sunset: "I don't know, maybe she just-"
  2174. >Sunset abruptly stops and gets up
  2175. >You quickly realize what's caught her attention
  2176. >A bright light radiates from the big statue out front
  2177. >A strong breeze kicks up
  2178. >There's a loud, thunderous boom, and the light becomes blinding
  2179. >When you get your vision back, you see a girl sitting on the floor in front of the statue dazed and confused
  2180. >Yup... makes perfect sense
  2181. >Less than seconds later, a small dog follows her out through the statue
  2182. >The girl on the floor picks herself up and the others embrace her in a big group hug
  2183. >Without you
  2184. >Statue girl seems to notice and breaks away from the group to introduce herself
  2185. >"Hi there, I'm Twilight Sparkle"
  2186. "I'm Anon"
  2187. >You take her hand for a handshake, but stop when you realize how limp her arm is, flopping around like a wet noodle
  2188. >Like she's never had a handshake before or something
  2189. >Twilight: "Nice meeting you Anon"
  2190. "You too. So do you always come out of statues or did you just miss the bus today?
  2191. >Nothing like a little smartass-ery to break the ice
  2192. >The joke seems to have gone over her head
  2193. >Twilight: "Right, the statue. Now I'm sure you're probably wondering just what's going on here and there's really no easy way to say this so I'm just going to say it"
  2194. >She lets out a long sigh
  2195. >Twilight: "You see, the truth is I'm actually-"
  2196. "-I know, you're an alien"
  2197. >Twilight: "Alien?"
  2198. "Yeah, an alien from another world. Sunset too"
  2199. >Twilight: "Okay, now I'm the one confused here"
  2200. >Dash: "Maybe you should just let her explain Anon"
  2201. >She's got a point
  2202. >You cut the comical genius for just a moment to let her carry on with her explanation of recent happenings
  2203. >So it turns out that Twilight is actually a princess in her world, not that it means anything here
  2204. >But wait, there's more
  2205. >She seems to have it all figured out
  2206. "... Sirens?"
  2207. Twilight: "That's right, sirens. They're mythical creatures who once roamed the land of Equestria- where I'm from- until they were banished. They must have found their way to this world"
  2208. "Banished? If they're so evil why not just kill them?"
  2209. >Twilight: "That's not how we do things in Equestria. We don't just go around killing each other willy-nilly, even with reason"
  2210. >You really ought to thank Twilight for checking your edginess
  2211. >Twilight: "Even if we wanted to, their magic was too great. There's no way they could be defeated in their most powerful state. Thy seem to be wakened here, but the more conflict and anger between everyone, the stronger they get"
  2212. "And what happens when they reach their strongest state?"
  2213. >Sunset: "As I'm sure you've noticed, they have a way of making people act not like themselves, making them angry and aggressive"
  2214. .Twilight: "Yes, and with enough power they're capable controlling the minds of others, forcing them to do their bidding"
  2215. >Dash: "None of us have been affected by it yet"
  2216. >Twilight: "It might have to do with what happened the last time I was here. Some of my magic may still be inside you"
  2217. >You struggle to not make any sexual joke about that out loud
  2218. >Twilight: "We may be protected from it now, but if they get any stronger there's no telling what will happen"
  2219. >Rarity: "But what about Anon? He didn't receive any of the magic when you were here last, but he doesn't seem to be under their spell either... are you?"
  2220. "Not that I know of"
  2221. >They've probably tried to cast their spell on you before though
  2222. >That would explain all that stuff about coming between you and Dash last week
  2223. >And when she tried to keep you from leaving the cafeteria after their song
  2224. >... and how you puked each time afterwards
  2225. "At least, not entirely under their spell"
  2226. >Rarity: "What do you mean?"
  2227. "I think their magic may have something to do with how sick I've been the last couple of days. Every time I got sick, it was after speaking to Adagio"
  2228. >Dash: "But you didn't throw the first time until I started playing"
  2229. "And I didn't throw up the second time until you started pulling me away from Adagio"
  2230. >Dash: "Where are you going with this?"
  2231. "Adagio said something to me when we first met: 'It'd be a shame if something came between you and Rainbow Dash'. Maybe this is part of their spell. You're protected by magic and they're too weak to make me do anything. Trying to make me sick around you is their way of pushing us apart"
  2232. >Dash: "... that's almost crazy enough to make sense"
  2233. >Twilight: "I think so too"
  2234. >She starts eyeing you up and down
  2235. >Twilight: "And now that you mention it, I do feel something coming from you, something magical"
  2236. >You always knew you were special
  2237. >Twilight: "But first things first, we need to figure out a way to defeat the Dazzlings"
  2238. >"What we need is some kind of counter-spell against them"
  2239. >... did her dog just talk?
  2240. >It seems to look straight at you
  2241. >"Yes, I just talked. The name's Spike"
  2242. >Apparently it reads minds too-
  2243. >Spike: "No I can't read minds. I just get that look every time I come to this world"
  2244. "What the hell kind of dog are you?"
  2245. >Spike: "I'm not a dog, I'm actually a freaking dragon-"
  2246. >Twilight: "-Spike! Language!"
  2247. >The dog snickers and sticks his paw out like some kind of animal bro-fist
  2248. >You just bro-fisted with a dog
  2249. >Fuck anybody who says you didn't
  2250. >Twilight: "Anyways, for a counter-spell to work we'd need everyone under their spell to hear it. That way we can ensure that no one is left under their control"
  2251. "What you should do is write it in the form of a song and perform it at the Battle of the Bands"
  2252. >Twilight: "... all the students will be gathered in one place, Anon you're a genius!"
  2253. "Yeah, sure"
  2254. >You're no genius
  2255. >You're just a cheeky asshole, wanting to see the Dazzlings get beaten at their own game in front of the whole school
  2256. >Twilight: "If I'm going to have that spell ready in time, we have to get started immediately. Come on Spike"
  2257. >She starts heading towards the school until Pinkie stops her
  2258. >Pinkie: "Wait, where are you going?"
  2259. >Twilight: "Usually I sleep in the library when I come here"
  2260. >So SHE'S the hobo who made that bed up there
  2261. >Pinkie: "Not tonight, you're sleeping at my place"
  2262. >lol she's gonna get raped
  2263. >Pinkie: "WAIT! I've got a great idea... slumber party at my house!"
  2264. >lol they're all gonna get raped
  2265. >Pinkie: "See you girls later. You too Nonny-"
  2266. "-Wait, me too?"
  2267. >Pinkie: "Well duh. Can't have a band slumber party without our only groupie present"
  2268. >...
  2269. >You're gonna get raped
  2270.  
  2271. >When you get home you throw some stuff in a backpack for the slumber party
  2272. >Pajamas and a change of clothes for tomorrow
  2273. >A tightly sealed travel cup of coffee for the morning just in case Pinkie doesn't have any at her place
  2274. >You consider putting on three pairs of underwear for protection in case SOMEONE gets frisky (you know who, the one who's been demanding a sex party since you've met)
  2275. >But then you change your mind, in case someone ELSE gets frisky (you know who, the one who's actually willing to push through three pairs for you)
  2276. >Not long after you've gotten ready Dash picks you up and you head over to Pinkie's place
  2277.  
  2278. >Pinkie: "Dash, Nonny, you're late!"
  2279. >She takes one of your hands and one of Dash's and drags you inside and up to her bedroom
  2280. >Well she cuts right to the chase
  2281. >Much to your relief, you get there and find the others already arrived and are still conscious and fully clothed
  2282. >As soon as you step in the room Rarity smushes her face up against yours
  2283. >Rarity: "Say cheese!"
  2284. "What-"
  2285. >*CLICK*
  2286. >You haven't even been here five minutes and you just got selfie raped
  2287. >Applejack: "Relax Anon, she does that to all of us"
  2288. >Dash: "Yeah, and I can guarantee more than once"
  2289. >This is going to be a long night
  2290.  
  2291. >Okay, this is actually a lot more fun than you expected
  2292. >Aside from the typical girly girl stuff like makeovers and gossip (to which you've heard your name a few times), the girls are actually pretty fun
  2293.  
  2294. >You're sitting at the foot of the bed watching Dash and Applejack play some vidya when Twilight comes by and sits next to you
  2295. "Hey Twilight finished already?"
  2296. >Twilight: "No, just taking a break. I'm having a hard time coming up with anything. What are they playing?"'
  2297. "No idea, but it's still fun to watch"
  2298. >Twilight: "Why?"
  2299. "Wait for it..."
  2300. >3
  2301. >2
  2302. >1
  2303. >*SLAM*
  2304. >Applejack: "Hey! I was just about to win!"
  2305. >Dash: "I dunno, it seemed pretty close to me"
  2306. >Dash hit the reset button on the console... again
  2307. >Dash: "Of course, if you wanna go again"
  2308. >Applejack: "... You're on"
  2309. >And they immediately start playing again
  2310. >There's no stopping the competition between them
  2311. >Twilight: "How long have they been going at it like this?"
  2312. "Since we got here"
  2313. >Twilight: "Wow..."
  2314. "Yeah. Wow"
  2315. >They continue playing
  2316. >...
  2317. >*SLAM*
  2318. >Once again, Dash #NoScopes the console
  2319. >Applejack: "You did it again!"
  2320. >Dash: "It was an accident, I swear"
  2321. >This seems to be the final nail in the coffin, and Applejack rage quits
  2322. >Applejack: "So Twi, how's that spell coming along?"
  2323. >Twilight: "... it's a work-in-progress"
  2324. >Applejack: "How much progress are we talking?"
  2325. >Twilight: "Quite a bit. Magic can be really tricky sometimes. Like how Anon somehow managed to get himself enchanted"
  2326. >Applejack: "Yeah, how did that happen anyways?"
  2327. "No idea. Maybe it's just because I've been hanging out with you guys more lately"
  2328. >Twilight: "Maybe... I don't know, magic is usually a little more intimate than that"
  2329. >You prepare for the shitstorm as soon as you hear the word 'intimate'
  2330.  
  2331. >Rarity: "Oh, he and Dash have been VERY intimate lately"
  2332. >Dash catches on and immediately tries to play it down
  2333. >Dash: "Yeah, he and I have been going out for a while now"
  2334. >Rarity: "You've been doing a lot more than that"
  2335. >Twilight: "What do you mean?"
  2336. >Wow, does Twilight really not get it?
  2337. >Rarity: "Let's just say they've been exchanging lots of magic lately"
  2338. >Twilight: "Huh?"
  2339. >Rarity: "Come on, do we have to spell it out for you"
  2340. >Pinkie: "S-E-X"
  2341. >God damn it Pinkie
  2342. >Even after that it takes Twilight a moment to register the meaning of that
  2343. >And once she does she releases a spaghetti storm
  2344. >Twilight: "... O-Oh! That would... work I guess. C-Can't really say from experience but it's a reasonable hypothesis"
  2345. >Applejack: "Judging by the way you talk Rarity, sounds like you're speakin from experience. Care to eplain?"
  2346. >Rarity: "What? Who told you about us-"
  2347. >You and Dash: "-RARITY!"
  2348. >Too late
  2349. >Applejack is already laughing her ass off
  2350. >Fluttershy is already blushing in second-hand embarrassment
  2351. >Pinkie is already swearing on her life that she didn't tell
  2352. >And Twilight still doesn't get what that means
  2353. >You never thought having an M-F-F threesome would be something you'd want to live down
  2354. >Then again, you never thought you'd have such gossipy friends
  2355. >*DING DONG*
  2356. >Thankfully, you're saved by the bell. The doorbell to be exact
  2357. >Pinkie: "Pizza's here!"
  2358. >Thank God for pizza
  2359.  
  2360. >Later that night
  2361. >Everyone's all partied out and agree that it's best you hit the sack
  2362. >Or rather, the floor for most of them
  2363. >Somehow you and Dash manage to find room to fall asleep spooning
  2364. >With everyone sprawled out wherever there's room you all drift off to sleep
  2365. >... okay, they all do
  2366. >Your eyes are closed but you're wide awake
  2367. >You know that as soon as you let your guard down Pinkie's gonna take out a sharpie and draw a dick on your forehead
  2368. >You're not going to let that happen
  2369. >You hear a quiet rustling, and you crack your eye open just a bit to catch Twilight sneaking out of the room
  2370. >Looks like you're not the only one awake
  2371. >No one else seems to notice
  2372. >And you don't really care, so you bury your face in the back of Dash's head and close your eyes
  2373. >... more rustling, and this time Sunset leaves
  2374. >Busy night
  2375. >Probably working on that spell thing of hers
  2376. >Again, none of your business
  2377. >...
  2378. >Dash: "hey Nonny, you awake?"
  2379. >She whispers just barely enough for you to hear
  2380. "yeah"
  2381. >Dash: "same here, can't really sleep. are you worried about the Dazzlings too?"
  2382. "not really. what's got you worried?"
  2383. >Dash: "are you sure you're able to resist their spell?"
  2384. "for the most part, why?"
  2385. >Dash: "... I don't know"
  2386. "Dashie, what aren't you telling me?"
  2387. >She turns around to face you
  2388.  
  2389. >Dash: "things could get bad. like, really bad. and I just want to make sure your safe, and-"
  2390. "Dashie, I'm going to be okay"
  2391. >Dash: "but what if you're not? what if somehow the Dazzling's spell gets to you"
  2392. "it won't"
  2393. >Dash: "but what if it does"
  2394. "it never will"
  2395. >Dash: "Nonny, please..."
  2396. >She struggles to find the words to say
  2397. >Dash: "all I ask is that we keep your involvement with the band to a minimum, at least until we find out what they're really capable of. if they are capable of controlling people's minds then the last thing I want is for you to be a target. I'm not saying we should stop hanging out altogether, but you are in more danger than any of us. it's for your own protection"
  2398. >You pull her as close as you can, your face just inches from hers
  2399. >Close enough for you to see her eyes start to water
  2400. "look, Adagio is clearly trying to cause a rift between the two of us. now I just watched you slam the reset button at least five times earlier when you were playing against Applejack, and if there's anything I can say for sure about you, it's that no one has ever beaten the one and only Rainbow Dash. are you really going to let Adagio be the first?"
  2401. >Dash: "of course not, but I don't want anything happening to you either"
  2402. "tell you what. if things get too real I'll back off like you asked, but until it they do you're stuck with me, got it?"
  2403. >Dash: "... promise?"
  2404. "promise. and if I don't and I somehow fall under their spell I'm giving you my blessing to smack the sense back into me"
  2405. >That got a giggle out of her
  2406. >Dash: "deal"
  2407. >She wipes her eyes
  2408. "got something in your eyes?"
  2409. >Dash: "y-yeah"
  2410. >She turns her back to you again and wiggles into a comfortable position
  2411. >You drape your arm over her and pull her close
  2412. >For the first time tonight, you feel like actually getting some sleep
  2413. >As you wake up the next morning you take a minute to figure out where the hell you are
  2414. >... Oh yeah, the slumber party
  2415. >Man, you slept surprisingly good last night
  2416. >"Morning Nonny"
  2417. "Morning Dashie"
  2418. >"Try again"
  2419. "... what?"
  2420. >You pick yourself up and rub your eyes, still struggling to wake up
  2421. >Dash is lying next to you clinging to your arm, but still asleep
  2422. >Pinkie Pie, on the other hand, is sitting up in bed wide awake
  2423. >She climbs down from the bed and sits next to you, careful not to step on anybody, then gives you a big hug
  2424. "What's that for?"
  2425. >Pinkie: "I thought you'd need it. You and Dash sounded upset last night"
  2426. "... You heard that?"
  2427. >Pinkie: "All of it. I was wide awake the whole time. And don't worry, I won't tell anyone"
  2428. "Thanks Pinkie. But everything's fine, you don't have to worry about us"
  2429. >She tries to hug you again
  2430. >Pinkie: "As long you're okay that's what matters. Did you at least get some sleep?"
  2431. "Yeah I did. What were you doing up that late anyways?"
  2432. >Pinkie: "What do you think?"
  2433. >You really don't want to think about what she was doing while everyone was asleep
  2434. "Dare I ask?"
  2435. >Pinkie: "I had to dish out the new guy treatment"
  2436. "And what pray tell is the 'new guy treatment'?"
  2437. >From across the room, Sunset yawns and stretches
  2438. >Sunset: "Morning guys"
  2439. >You stare blankly at her
  2440. >Sunset: "... what's with that look?"
  2441. "You got a little something up there"
  2442. >You point to her forehead, where someone wrote the 'EVIL' in black marker
  2443. >She takes out her phone and checks her reflection
  2444. >Sunset: "Damn it, who did this?"
  2445. >Pinkie: "Nothing personal Sunny, it's the new guy treatment"
  2446. >You weren't sure if she'd be angry or if she'd take it well
  2447. >To much relief, she laughs
  2448. >Sunset: "I really should have known better"
  2449. >Pinkie: "Took you long enough to finally fall asleep"
  2450. >She tries to rub it off, which only serves to smear it around but still keep its shape
  2451. >Pinkie: "Relax, it'll wash off with soap"
  2452. >Twilight slowly wakes up next
  2453. >Twilight: "What's with all the commotion?"
  2454. "... good morning egghead"
  2455. >Twilight: "E-Excuse me?!"
  2456. >Sunset: "Your chest"
  2457. >She looks down at herself
  2458. >Her shirt is halfway buttoned down, and just beneath her shoulders she has 'EGGHEAD' written on her chest
  2459. >On a side note, someone really needs to get her a bra
  2460. >Twilight: "What? Who would do..."
  2461. >She figures it out pretty quickly
  2462. >Pinkie: "Consider it a compliment, you're one of us now"
  2463. >Twilight: "I'll never understand some of these human traditions"
  2464. >You take this opportunity to look yourself over, but you appear to be clean
  2465. "Did you forget something?"
  2466. >Pinkie giggles
  2467. >Pinkie: "You got a very special treatment"
  2468. "Is that just your way of saying you molested me in your sleep?"
  2469. >It was just a little more than a joke
  2470. >Pinkie: "Sorry Nonny, you haven't earned that privilege yet. Play your cards right and maybe next time"
  2471. >Note to self: don't play your cards right next time
  2472. >Fluttershy: "morning everyone"
  2473. >You had no idea she was even awake
  2474. >Fluttershy: "you know, it's almost-"
  2475. >Rarity: "-Good morning"
  2476. >She covers her mouth as she yawns
  2477. >Even waking up for her is polite, graceful, and fancy-ass
  2478. >She takes a moment to glance over those of you who were awake
  2479. >Rarity: "... you guys got the new guy treatment pretty hard"
  2480. >Twilight: "Yup. Apparently I'm a... an 'egghead'"
  2481. >She struggles to let out even a basic insult like that
  2482. >Stick around and you'll teach her the finer arts of bitchiness
  2483. >Fluttershy: "umm, girls-"
  2484. >Rarity: "What about you Anon?"
  2485. "Apparently I got a special treatment"
  2486. >Rarity: "The what?"
  2487. >Pinkie: "If you ask me it's my best work of art"
  2488. "-What the hell does that mean?"
  2489. >Pinkie: "Well I've never had a guy over here before"
  2490. >You don't like the sound of that
  2491. >Pinkie: "The problem with girls is that their boobs get in the way. A guy's chest is flat, a perfect canvas for a work of art"
  2492. "My chest?"
  2493. >You lift up your shirt and behold Pinkie's 'work of art'
  2494. >Sunset: "Pfft- HAHAHA!"
  2495. >Sunset erupts into a laughter that awakens the others
  2496. >Dash: "What's the big deaOH my God!"
  2497. >Dash joins her in the laughter, and once Applejack notices she does the same
  2498. >Dash: "Sorry Nonny but that's freaking hilarious!"
  2499. >You have to admit, it was pretty good
  2500. >And fitting for you
  2501. >Fluttershy: "girls I think-"
  2502. >*KNOCK KNOOCK KNOCK*
  2503. >Pinkie: "Come on in... oh hey Maud"
  2504. >"I heard a loud noise. Is everything-... That's hilarious. Good one Pinkie Pie"
  2505. >It's hard to tell if that was sarcastic or not because everything she said was so monotone
  2506. >Fluttershy: "girls, we're-"
  2507. >"You should all get going. School started half an hour ago"
  2508. >You check the time
  2509. >... shit
  2510. >Dash: "Why didn't anyone say anything?"
  2511. >Fluttershy: "I was trying"
  2512. >You really ought to listen to Fluttershy more
  2513. >Before leaving she looks over at you
  2514. >"What's your name"
  2515. "Anon"
  2516. >"Anon, there's a large drawing of a penis on your chest"
  2517. "I noticed"
  2518. >"You probably shouldn't have a drawing of a penis on your chest"
  2519. "I'll keep that in mind"
  2520. >Everyone hurried home so they could at least make it to school in time for the second class
  2521. >You took extra time in the shower to wash off the sharpie dick drawn on your body
  2522.  
  2523. >You make it to school and find Dash waiting out front for you
  2524. "You're waiting for me?"
  2525. >Dash: "You always do for me. And besides it's not like we're getting any less late"
  2526. >True that
  2527. >Dash: "Did you at least manage to get the drawing off?"
  2528. "Yeah, I scrubbed it until it got off"
  2529. >Pun intended
  2530. >Dash: "All of it?"
  2531. "Is this your way of trying to get me to take my shirt off?"
  2532. >Dash: "What? No, I'm just asking"
  2533. "And that's all you gotta do if you want me shirtless, just ask"
  2534. >Your first class was almost over, you didn't even bother going
  2535. >Instead, Dash took you to the back of the school where no one would catch you having sex
  2536. >When you asked her why she was so eager today she said that she was 'just surprised you didn't do anything to her last night'
  2537. >Which is Dash-speak for 'disappointed that you didn't do anything to her last night'
  2538.  
  2539. >Lunch time
  2540. >You, Dash, Applejack, and Rarity takes your seats at the lunch table
  2541. >The Dazzlings occupy their usual seats at their usual table
  2542. >It's weird thinking that they're actually monsters from another world
  2543. >Just when you least expect it Adagio winks at you
  2544. >... reeeeeaally creepy
  2545. >Dash: "Anon!"
  2546. "Huh?"
  2547. >Did she just use your regular name?
  2548. >Haven't heard that in a while
  2549. >Dash: "I said your name like five times, are you okay?"
  2550. "Yeah, I'm fine. Just zoned out for a minute"
  2551. >She looks over in the same direction you are
  2552. >Dash: "... Nonny, you remember the deal right?"
  2553. "Yeah"
  2554. >Dash: "Good"
  2555. >About half way through lunch a call comes in over the intercom
  2556. >Celestia: "All bands performing in the Battle of the Bands please report to the gymnasium immediately"
  2557. >Dash: "What's that all about?"
  2558. >Pinkie: "No idea"
  2559. >All the performers clear out of the cafeteria in a hurry, which to your surprise is nearly half the cafeteria
  2560. >Pinkie: "Whoa, we've never had this many people performing before"
  2561. >Applejack: "That's because we've never had monsters from another world brainwashing everyone before"
  2562. >Except for Sunset... you don't dare say that out loud
  2563.  
  2564. >You arrive at the gym the same time as the Dazzlings
  2565. >Adagio: "Fancy meeting you all here. What a coincidence"
  2566. >Applejack: "Hardly"
  2567. >Adagio: "Not you girls, I mean you Anon. I had no idea you were even in the band"
  2568. "I'm not"
  2569. >Adagio: "You may as well be, what with the way you all are so inseparable"
  2570. "It's called having friends. Try it out sometime"
  2571. >The girls laugh; even Sonata and Aria snicker a bit
  2572. >Adagio rolls her eyes
  2573. >Adagio: "We'll see how long that lasts"
  2574. >The three of them head inside together
  2575. >You let your friends go in before you, and as soon as you step inside you meet awkward encounter #2
  2576.  
  2577. >Flash: "Well well well, look who it is"
  2578. >Damn it not this again
  2579. "Look Flash, I don't want any trouble with you so just back off"
  2580. >Flash: "Hey, I don't want any trouble either"
  2581. "Then why are you talking to me?"
  2582. >Flash: "Just to wish you good luck. I mean, let's face it, you guys are no competition for me, but the Dazzlings, now they're the ones to beat"
  2583. "Yeah, and WE will be the one's to beat them"
  2584. >Flash: "For once, I actually appreciate that attitude of yours. I heard you giving it to Adagio out there. And it's like that old saying goes... "
  2585. >He reaches out for a handshake
  2586. >Flash: "The friend of my enemy is an enemy of my friend... or something"
  2587. >Not even close
  2588. >You return the handshake, not sure what to expect
  2589. >... nothing. Just a friendly handshake
  2590. >Has science gone too far?
