>Be anon in "ADateWithDash"
>However its an alternate universe
>And its actually a short "ADateWithRarity" story
>A certain fashionista has recently acknowledged you as an individual with outstanding amounts of maturity and sophistication among ponys
>Being mature and sophisticated is pretty easy when the bar is as low as it is
>Just dont pick your nose in public and dont chew with your mouth open all the time
>Meet those requirements and your practically a noble
>And it would seem your mindfulness of manners and your noble demeanour has attracted the attention of Rarity
>You had recently received a letter from her praising you on your manners and maturity
>Within the letter she had also invited you to accompany her as her date to wine tasting party in Canterlot
>You were kind of surprised at this, but you were also very interested
>Rarity was probably one of the only ponys you have ever meet that actually acted their age
>You and her shared many good conversations that didnt devolve into you talking about things like crayons, or yucky food
>You were able to discuss more serious and mature topics with her and she would be able to keep up and support the conversation
>Hell, that sole reason alone is more than enough for you to accept her proposal
>So you did
>You had gone and told her in person that you would gladly go with her
>She was overjoyed with your response
>She assured you that you were both going to have a wonderful time and she had even given you some new fancy dress clothes to wear for your date
>The plan was to meet her at the train station tomorrow and so you did
>The new suit she had given you was definitely something else
>It was a soft comfortable blend of black wool and cashmere
>It felt really light in your grip, but once you put it on it turned out to be very sturdy
>A suit this nice wasnt just something you could go out and casually buy with pocket change
>You hope Rarity didnt spend to much time or money making this suit
>Shits starting to make you feel guilty just wearing it
>You quickly find Rarity among the other ponys at the train station
>You were able to easily spot her because of all the other ponys circled around her
>Everyone had their attention focused on her and you can easily understand why
>She was nothing less than stunning
>She was wearing a beautiful deep black dress that greatly complimented her elegant form
>It made her appearance give off an air of authority yet also conveyed a sweet gentleness as well
>It was hard to tear your eyes away from her
>And it would seem other ponys seemed to be just as affected as you
>Ooohss and ahhhhs had been coming from many of the ponys observing Rarity and she ate it all up
>She was receving compliments on her dress left and right
>Ponys were commenting on how shiny and pretty it is.
>Many asking where they can get pretty and shiny clothes like hers
>Kinder ponys seem to have an affinity for shiny objects and materials
>Its part of the reason glitter is in high demand all over Equestria
>Rarity takes notice of you and wades her way through the crowd of amazed poners
>"Anonymous! You look absolutely dashing in your new suit!"
"Ah, thanks Rarity. I gotta say you look absolutely gorgeous in your dress."
>Rarity blushes at your comment and looks away slightly "Oh, thank you darling. I just wanted to look my best for our date is all. I assure you tonight is going to be one to remember Anon.
"Thats good to hear Rarity. Im excited to see how things will go."
>"I as well darling, I as well!"
>The train doors open and a conductor pony call for ponys to get on the train
>"Oh! It looks like we had better start boarding Anonymous! I had made sure to reserve a couples seat for us at the front of the train."
"Ah well then."
>You back up slightly and motion your hand towards the train
>She smiles at your gesture and makes her way towards the train doors "You are quite the gentlehuman Anonymous."
>Cheessy yet effective
>The train ride to Canterlot was rather uneventful yet still enjoyable
>The couples seat that you both sat at was just two single pony benches with a small table in between them
>Considering your human size you ended up having very little room between the two of you, however that seemed to only add to the intimacy of your date with Rarity
>You apologized for taking up all the room, but she had insisted that the fault was hers, not yours
>She mentioned she had forgotten to take your size into consideration when reserving the seats, but she didnt mind the lack of room between you two
>Once the two of you had found comfy positioning between each other you began to talk about your trip
>You had both spent most of the train ride talking about the wine tasting party that you would be attending
>It was an upscale wine shop just outside the castle
>Apparently a lot of important Canterlot ponys frequent the place, and not just any pony could waltz in
>You could only get in if you had the proper connections and apparently Rarity had those connections
>You cant say you were to surprised you were going to some upscale place
>Its actually something you expected when Rarity mentioned being her date
>Your more surprised that these ponys actually drink alcohol
>The only beverage you have encountered in Equestria with an actual alcohol content was a batch of "messed up" cider AppleJack had made
>She said it wasnt safe for pony consumption and that it needed to be disposed of
>You had kindly offered to dispose of it for her and she accepted your help
>Hell she even tried to pay you
>But the familiar taste of booze was payment enough
>If she knew you were gonna drink the stuff she would probably have called you crazy
>Anyways Rarity had assured you that what you will be drinking today is a special beverage that only those with a mature and sophisticated pallet can handle
>Your not exactly sure what that meant, but if it means you can get even the tiniest bit of sloshed, your in
>Now your really starting to look forward to this wine tasting thing
>In the corner of the "Wine" shop filled with noble ponys dressed up in silly fancy clothes
>Your currently sucking on your box of "wine" and eating your string cheese while Rarity and a group of snooty ponys gossip about matters you frankly cant find any interest in
>Its not that your not trying to keep up and understand
>Its just that talk about celebrity relationships were never really your thing
>Really its not even that great of gossip either
>Talk about ponys that you dont know who may or may not be in a relationship
>Really you have just been wondering how your gonna get more of that "bad" cider from AppleJack
>Your gonna have to figure something out real soon too since your running low
>"Really? Holding hoofs in public! You dont say!" Rarity says in astonishment
>The moustached noble pony takes a light sip from his juice box and pulls off a strand of his string cheese and pops it into his mouth "Thats right, or at least thats what ive heard from reliable sources."
>Rarity looks up to you with intrigue "What do you think Anon? Absolutely scandalous dont you say?"
>Oh shit what were they talking about again? You werent really paying attention
You remove your straw from your mouth "Uh yeah, thats pretty crazy...."
>Somehow sensing your lack of commitment to the conversation, Rarity's expression becomes one of concern
>Oh shit did you say the wrong thing. You dont want her think your not enjoying yourself
>However juice boxes, string cheese, and gossip arent really your definition of a good time, but that doesnt mean your not having fun!
"H-hey Rarity im starting to run on empty." You shake your juice box to show exactly what you mean by empty "Im gonna go grab another jui- wine box, would you like one?"
"Oh sure thing dear, but actually I will accompany you as well." Rarity says still looking somewhat concerned
>After saying her goodbye to the moustached pone, you and Rarity both slowly make your way towards one of the serving ponys holding a tray of juice boxes
>Rarity stops you and taps your leg lightly "Anon.... are you enjoying yourself darling? If your not we ca-"
"Ah no Rarity im having a good time! I have just been a little lost is all. I havent really ever done this thing before and I guess its just not quite what I was expecting."
>Rarity looks a bit relieved, but still shows signs of concern
>"Oh Anonymous, I must apologize for my carelessness. I should have been more attentive with you. Oh I know just the thing that well help you get into the swing of things! Let me just go ask the server for something a bit more special, and then I'll show you what these partys are all about! Just wait right here!"
>Rarity trots away over to a pony sitting behind a bar that seems to stock with a variety of juice boxes
>She seems to be talking to the pony at the bar while pointing over to you
>The bar pony nods his head and walks out from his bar and into another nearby room
>Your not exactly sure what Rarity is up to, but you figure its just best to standby and watch for now
>A server pony carrying a tray of juice boxes and string cheese comes up to you "Oh hello sir! Care for more wine or maybe some cheese?"
>You take a few more drags from your juice box and find that you are on about empty
"Oh yeah sure thing, what do ya got?"
>The server pony smiles and begins to list off the different juices he has "I have apple juice, cranberry juice, orange juice, and uuuuhhhhhhhh grape!"
"ummm I'll take an apple juice."
>The pony magics over a box of apple juice to you while taking your empty one
>"Would you like some cheese as well" he asks cheerily
>He levitates a stick of cheese and you take it from his magical grasp
>He stares at you eagerly with a big smile as if expecting something from you
>Oh right, he probably wants a tip
You look down at the server pony "Your really good at your job and your mane is well kept."
>The server pony blushes slightly and bashfully paws at the ground
"Your also really good at listing off the different types of "wine" and are generally a pleasant pony to be around"
>That had ought to do the trick
>Thats one thing you can appreciate about this crazy poner land
>Ponys love a good compliment in reward for good service
>The server pony seems to be overjoyed with your very generous "tip" and gives you a slight bow before giddly trotting over to the bar counter
>He is practically dancing over your compliments
>You must of really made his day
>He is almost literally jumping and dancing with joy
>Hopefully he decides to stop twirling around in time to avoid Rarity who is now making her way over to you with a very large juice box
>Ummmmm no he is still doing his joyful little twirls
>Ok maybe you can warn Rarity to move before this ecstatic pone crashes into her
You call out to Rarity "Uhhhhh Rarity you might wanna move over really quickly!"
>Rarity pauses for a moment and looks slightly puzzled "Im sorry darling, you want me to what?"
>The server pony crashes into Rarity
>Both of the ponys look shocked and confused as they collide into each other
>The startled server pony momentarily release his magical grip on the trays he was carrying causing empty and full boxes of juice to fall onto him and rarity as well as sticks of cheese
>Rarity loses her focus and drops her large box of juice onto the ground
>Despite causing quite the commotion and gaining the attention of all the other ponys in the room the mess was relatively small
>A few drops of juice from the empty boxes had managed to find their way onto Rarity, lightly staining her dress and fur while the server pony had been covered in cheese
>Fortunately none of the full boxes had broken open, especially Rarity's larger box
>The server pony takes notice of the mess he had made of his surroundings as well as Raritys dress and fur coat "I-I-Im so very sorry miss! I d-didnt mean to! It was an accident! he stutters
>Rarity's eye twitches slightly and she forces an awkward yet reassuring smile "It's.....quite alright Darling....accidents happen...no need to make a big deal out of a few drops of wine haha....."
>Rarity looks over to you still wearing her forced smile
>You force your own smile and give Rarity an awkward thumbs up in order to help and try and calm her nerves
>Despite the slight tension in the air, the server pone seems to be somewhat comforted by Rarity's words and decides to try and rectify the situation "Oh I know! We have some paper towels in the back that you can use to clean yourself up, miss! Let me go get them for you!
>Once again becoming oblivious to his surroundings, the server pone begins to make his way to the back room, however, his first hoof step forward is ill-placed as it lands directly on top of the gallon-sized box of juice that Rarity had dropped earlier
>In less than a second one side of the box had heavily bulged out and burst with a torrent of juice that resembled that of a fire hose
>The torrent had relentlessly assailed Rarity with cartoonish amounts of fluid
>The juice had just kept coming and coming and coming with no end in sight
>Ponys just stood still with mouths agape watching the scene unfold
>Both you and the server pony were no exception either
>Holy shit, how much juice was inside that box?
>It must have been enchanted or something along those lines because the amount that had spilled out was more so equal to 20 gallons if not more
>Finally after a good 15 seconds, the geyser of juice had petered out to a steady trickle that on the floor
>The silence in the room was palpable
>No pony dared make a move and the only sound being made was the sound of juice trickling off of Rarity
>You suddenly get an odd feeling in your stomach
>Like something was about to go horribly wrong
>You look around and see other ponys begins to fidget slightly and some are starting to even look a bit......panicked
>What is their deal, and why do you feel like shit is gonna hit the fan soon?
>Its not like Rarity is going to...
>No...no way she would do such a thing, especially here of all places, in front of all these fancy ponys
>She would never do the craziest thing that a pony could do in this magical pone land
>She would never throw the universally feared and dreaded tantrum
>You feel a bead of sweat roll down your face
>Very rarely when a pony is put under great amounts of stress and the right circumstances are met they may overcome their evolutionary "flight or run away" response and opt for a more drastic response
>Thats how Twilight explained it to you at least
>You have never seen one in person, but you have heard of one that had occurred in Manehatten not to long ago
>Apparently they had to shut down a whole section of the city
>Though its likely they were overreacting as ponys tend to do
>You still would not like to have to deal with the utter chaos that would follow the mass pony freakout
>Observing Rarity's current state, you begin to become somewhat concerned
>That torrent of juice had did a number on Rarity and to say it nicely she was kind of.......a mess
>Rarity's body had been soaked with copious amounts of the reddish liquid and it had definitely taken its toll on her appearance
>Her usual greyish white coat was now stained a light pink colour
>Her mascara ran down her face in inky black trails
>And her previously done up hair, now sopping wet, lay flat against her face dripping with juice
>For a pony obsessed with her appearance, this was probably the worst-case scenario for Rarity
>Rarity slowly looks down at the puddle of juice surrounding her causing you as well as everypony else in the room as well to flinch
>She observes her reflection in the puddle for a few moments
>Rarity's lack of action is starting to take its toll on some of the ponys in the room as they start to become even more panicked
>Rarity begins to slowly look up at the server pone
>Her face is devoid of emotion
>The server pone, on the other hand, is the exact opposite
>What he is now feeling is nothing less than pure terror
>His chest is heaving rapidly and he is obviously sweating up a storm
>Rarity pierces him with her gaze and the sever pony just cant bring himself to look at her
>You almost feel bad for the poor clumsy poner
>The server pone slowly lifts his hoof from the now empty box and quietly sputters "I-I......Im s-s-so....s-sorry......miss...I-I-I-It was a-a-an accident....."
>Rarity continues to stare down the poner with her unmoving expressionless stare "Your.....sorry?" she asks in a quiet monotone voice
>Oh shit here it comes
>The server pony now in very obvious duress cant bear to bring himself to respond to her question
>"You spill wine all over me and all you can say is your sorry?" Rarity say with a slightly less monotone voice
>Tears are beginning to run down the server ponys face and he looks like he is about to faint "I-Im s-s-sorry." he sobs
>Rarity finally lets go of her icy stare in exchange for a more furious looking "Do you even understand exactly what you have done!?" Her voice gets louder and is borderline shouting
>Ok maybe you should get involved before this escalates any further
>You begin to take a step forward towards Rarity and the server pone, however your brought to an abrupt stop as a pony almost crashes into your side
>You quickly step back in order to avoid the terrified poner
>She wastes no time darting past you to who knows where
>Jeez what the hell was up with her
>As you finish the thought you can feel something bump into you from behind causing you to almost fall over
>Fortunatley you manage to catch yourself and avoid falling to the ground
>You look behind yourself and see the source being another frantic looking pony
>Actually now that you have taken your eyes off of Rarity and the server pony for a few moments, your able to see that everything has devolved into pure and utter chaos
>Everypony in the room was in a state of terror and panic
>Poners were running all over the place causing a big commotion
>There was no method to their panic either
>Many of the ponys just were running around the room aimlessly occasionaly crashing into objects or even other ponys
>Some ponys had even taken to hiding under tables, chairs, trash cans, napkins, whatever they felt could provide them protection from whatever threatened them
>Oddly enough, you saw a few scared ponys gallop out the door of the building and soon a few more ponys that looked just as scared as the ones that left ran inside the building and joined the madness
>Alright you had really ought to get Rarity and leave
>You turn back to Rarity and see her unloading her anger onto the server pone who is now curled up in fetal position on the floor
>You attempt to make your way over to Rarity
>You are forced to dodge a few more charging ponys and take a big step over a grown stallion who is crying his eyes out on the floor
>As much as you want to help these ponys and try and calm them down, you think this might be a little bit more than you can handle
>Espically considering that there are more ponys in the building now than there were before the mass freakout happened
>Where the hell are all these new terrified poners coming from?
>How does this shit even work?
>After managing not to trip over a pony hiding in a pile of napkins, you finally manage to get near Rarity and the server pone
>"AND ANOTHER THING! DO YOU EVEN REALIZE HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO GET MY HAIR JUST RIGHT?! WAY TOO LONG! AND THAT DOESNT EVEN COME ANYWHERE NEAR HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO DO MY MAKEUP! LET ME TELL Y-"
>Oh jeez Rarity is really giving it to that poor poner
>Fortunately Rarity's constant shouting seems to have caused him to pass out from fear
>Rarity turns to you still looking enraged "WHAT!?"
>You recoil slightly with the harsh tone Rarity takes with you
>You raise your hands in front of you to show that you mean no harm
>Rairty continues to seeth with anger as she stares you down, but her angry expression seems to falter as she begins to realize your not just some random pony interrupting her rage
>"Oh.....Anon...Im sorry.....I didnt mean to raise my voice at you........oh....my..." Rarity finally takes notice of the mayhem that is surrounding her
>The more she observes the chaos around her the more her rage fades into sadness and guilt
>Finally she looks down at a puddle of juice near her hoofs and observes her own reflection
>She cringes at the sight of the pony in the puddle and looks up to you with watery eyes
>"I-im sorry Anon......Th..things weren't supposed to turn out like this....And.....and it's all my fault they did....."
>Rarity hangs her head low and clamps her eyes shut in an effort to keep her tears from spilling
>Its all for nought however as tears still manage to squeeze their way through and begin to roll down her stained fur cheeks as she begins to let out quite sobs
>Ah fuck Anon
>You hate seeing ponys cry
>Espically when its pony you care about
>This is probably the worst things could possibly get
>You gotta do something about this mess
>Fortunately when things are this bad, there is nowhere else to go but up
>You kneel down and pick up the crying juice soaked Rarity
>You support her bottom with your forearm and wrap your free arm around her back pulling her close to your shoulder
>Your gonna need a better setting if you want to cheer Rarity up, so you had better get the hell out of here
>Plus you dont want to get caught up in the quarantine zone the guards will surely set up
>Rarity doesnt give much of a reaction to you picking her up as she is still too busy sobbing uncontrollably
>But she does however wrap her hooves around your neck and buries her face into your shoulder making it a bit easier to carry the pone
>You deftly dodge panicked ponys left and right as you and Rarity make your way to the exit
>You wanna help out these poor ponys and help calm them down, but Rarity comes first
>You near the door leading to the outside, but quickly stand to the side as a few flustered poners come charging inside
>Before the door closes, you and Rarity slip out leaving the mass freakout behind
>Or so you thought
>The streets of Canterlot seem to be just as if not worse
>Ponys are freaking out on the streets as well
>There are ponys running around aimlessly, crashing into objects as well as each other just like they were doing inside
>Shop stalls have been tipped over, Chariots lay flipped on their sides, and you think you can see a trashcan that somehow managed to catch fire
>You can feel a damp spot begin to grow steadily as Rarity's sobs begin to grow heavier
"Hey come on, cheer up Rarity!" you softly whisper
>You adjust your hold on her so that way your grip on her is even more secure and your head is closer to hers
>Despite the slight readjustment, she still makes an effort to mash her face into your neck and refuses to look at you
"Don't worry Rarity, I know just the place that we can go that will help make you feel better!"
>Rarity shuffles in your grip slightly and you can feel her heavy sobs pause for a moment, the pressure of her face on your neck softens slightly
>"Hmmm?" She curiously moans into you
>Looks like you got her attention
"Oh yeah! I promise you will love where we are going! Its a surprise though, so while I get us there, you just sit tight and try to think how many scoops you want. Sound good?"
>Rarity pulls away from your neck completely now and looks at you with a puzzled expression "Scoops? What do you mean by scoops darling?"
>Good you were able to pull her mind away from the whole wine tasting fiasco
"Heh its a surprise Rarity, but you'll know when we get there!"
>You briskly jog away from the chaos surrounding you
>You wanna get as far away as you can from this huge catastrophe
>Espically before the guards make it over here and block off this whole area
>You also really wanna help Rarity feel better about...well......everything you suppose
>Its safe to say that this date didnt quite turn out how she expected it to
>Hell, you bet the only reason she isnt bawling her eyes out right now is likely because she is to busy trying to figure out where you are taking her
>Fortunatley you have a plan
>Based on how many ice cream tubs Rarity keeps in her fridge, its safe to say your plan is pretty much full proof
>Fortunately for you Canterlot just so happens to be home to one of the most kickass ice cream parlours you have ever been to
>You go there whenever your in the area, and you can easily say Cold stone creamery has nothing on this place
>You would probably get diabetes and die from said diabetes before you could finish trying every one of the flavours this place has!
>Plus you know what they say, "Bomb-ass icecream heals all wounds!"
>Well....you say that at least......in your head......
You turn your gaze slightly towards the unicorn while steadily jogging towards your destination "Yeah Rarity, whats up?"
>"I think I have settled on having 4 scoops of sugar in my tea if thats alright darling."
>You let out a small chuckle and the pink stained unicorn looks at you even more puzzled than before
"We arent going out for tea Rarity, we are getting something much better!"
>"Really? Better than tea? What is it? Why dont you just tell me what it is already darling? I really want to know!" Rarity says with a mix of curiosity, excitement, and slight annoyance.
"I told you already Rarity, its a surprise! Dont worry though we are almost th-"
>You quickly pause your words as you see a large mass of white and yellow making its way rapidly towards your direction
>Its taking up the entirety of the street leaving little room to get by and is making quite the loud commotion
>Thinking quickly, you take Rarity and find cover in a nearby alleyway and wait for whatever it is to pass
>You would prefer not to get sidetracked or caught up in any more chaos, you have definitely had your fill of excitement for today
>Peeking out from the alleyway in order to see exactly what the large mass was, you see what must be at least 50 royal guard soldiers hauling ass towards the pony freakout zone you and Rarity had just left
>They all wear serious stern expressions as they charge down the street towards their destination
>At least a third of them are carrying big yellow rolls of tape that says "Do not cross"
>You feel Rarity shuffle a little in your arms and you turn your attention down to her
>"A-anon.....darling, why are there so many guards heading down the street and what do you think they are going to do with all that tape?"
"Looks like they are gonna try to quarantine the area before the panic spreads. Cant say I blame them considering how fast ponys who weren't even taking part in the wine tasting had begun to flip their lid."
>As the last of the guards pass you by, you begin to get ready to take off down the street towards the ice cream parlour
>However you halt any thoughts of progression when you feel Rarity lightly trembling in your arms
"Hey Rares, everything all right?"
>You look down once more towards the pony only to see her cheeks have found new dampness and her eyes are now clenched shut
"N-no...A-anon......im afraid nothings all right....."
>Rarity lets out a small sniffle and begrudgingly looks in your direction
>"I-I never should have....this was all a mista-" seizing your chance before she can say any more you quickly move in and steal a kiss from fashionista pony
>from her cheek of course
>Rarity freezes for a moment and once she realizes what you had just done her cheeks burn red and she tries to say something but only manages to trip over her own words
>As she blurts out nonsense she melts into you arms as if she were made of putty trying to use her front hoofs to cover her blush
>Funny, it tasted kind of like vanilla and grape juice
>Had these ponys been a bit less pure you might have actually gone for mouth to mouth
>But you wouldnt dare take one from her lips unless you wanted her to think that you were asking for her hoof in marriage, you learned your very awkward lesson after a big misunderstanding involving homemade alcohol and Pinkie
>You smile, seeing your risky plan has paid off, you finally make your way to get what is rightfully yours
>Some ice cream will do you both some good after this long day
>You stroll out of the ally with vigor, intent on stopping for nothing
>Rarity offers little in the form of protest as she is to busy babbling out words to focus on the events of earlier
>With nothing more than a quick stride you happen upon your destination
>Still cradling the gooey pone, you carefully push the door open with your foot and enter the building
>The bell at the top of door lets out a pleasent jingle
>The somewhat burly looking unicorn pony behind the counter tears his gaze away from the smoke in the distance and gives you two a wide smile
>"Welcome to the "Princess's bucket" ice cream parlour! What can I get for-.....Anon! It's been way to long! I was beginning ta think that yous was givin up ice cream!" The pony says joyfully in a funny Boston accent
>He looks down at the squirmy blob of Rarity in your arms "Uhhh whos is that you got with ya? Is she alright?"
"Oh, this is Rarity and its kind of a long story."
>"Ah I get ya, well whatever yous gets is on da house! For old times sake, and because it looks like yous guys had quite the day."
"Thanks Cold Stone."
>Cold Stone is pretty based, you would share some of your homemade alcohol with him if you were certain it wouldnt kill him
>You look to the pony in your arms and notice that she is slowly moving her head up to your face with pursed lips
>As soon as notices that you noticed her, she quickly recoils and stuffs her face into your arms
"Hey Rarity come on out, we are here."
>"N-no...I....im fine w-were I am Darling, thank you...." She says, voice muffled by your arm
>You walk up to the display where they display all 50 flavours of ice cream
>These ponys are serious about their sweets
You lower your mouth down next to her ear and whisper "Rarity look, ice cream."
>Her ears immediately perk up and she lifts her head up with newfound alertness
>As soon as she notices the ice cream display, she practically jumps out of your arms and presses her face to the glass
>"Wuh....wuh....wuh....so many flavours...."
"Go ahead and get whatever you want Rarity, Cold Stone has us covered."
>Cold Stone gives you a reassuring nod and walks over and opens up the display
>"What'll it be miss?"
>Rarity shots up from the glass display and looks at Cold Stone with a sense of urgency
>"Do you do waffle bowls here!?"
>Be Anon still
>Sitting across from a renewed and revitalized Rarity who is currently on her third waffle bowl triple sundae
>Jeez she sure can put it away
>You wonder where she puts it all
>Maybe in her fla-
>A loud belch suddenly interrupts your thinking
>You look up in astonishment at Rarity
>She sheepishly grins "Oh.....excuse me Darling."
>Lifting the last piece of the waffle bowl into her mouth, she munches down on it until nothing remains
>She then leans back and relaxes into the booth until her slightly more plump than usual tummy slides underneath the table
>"Oh I really needed that." she groans in pleasure
"I agree, that really did hit the spot. Maybe next time we could maybe just skip the wine tasting and come straight here if that's okay with you Rarity."
>Rarity looks at you with a soft hopeful smile "N-next time?...You mean you would l-like to do this again.....with me?" Her smile quickly fades "Even after everything that happened?"
"Yeah of course!" you say with genuine enthusiasm "I actually enjoyed how exciting things got. Doesnt get much more exciting than inciting a freak out riot, avoiding the ponice, and getting some ice cream afterwards."
>"Ha....ha....I suppose not." Rarity laughs nervously "But maybe for our next date we can just go on a picnic or go sightseeing or something small......with ice cream of course!"
"Sounds like a plan Rares." You pick up your spoon and take a scoop of your dwindling ice cream and pop it in your mouth
>Raritys warm smile quickly turns to an upset frown
>"Anon.....I think you were very rude earlier today!"
You take the spoon out of your mouth "Huh what, I was?!"
>Oh shit did she see you picking your nose, or did you accidentally look at another mares flank while she was looking!?
>"Y-you k-kissed me when I was vulnerable! I should have b-been the one to kiss you! In Equestira, its the mare who kisses the stallion!"
>She puffs her red cheeks up to try and seem serious, but you cant help but let out a light chuckle
"My bad Rarity, im still getting used to Equestrian customs. I let you do the smooching next time."
>"G-good.....im glad we got that cleared up then."
>You take the last spoonful of ice cream and pop it into your mouth
>You turn to stare out the window and look at the plumeing smoke in the distance
>You didnt notice the white poner across from you slowly closing the distance between you two with lips pursed
>You feel slightly guilty about all the chaos you two instigated
>Hopefully the damages arent to dire over on the other side of Canterlot
>Well, the guards did have a ton of police tape with them so they probably have it under control
>Rarity, only inches away from your face quickly mutters "A-anon darling! Youhavesomeicecreamonyourcheekletmegetitforyou!"
>Hearing Rarity say something, you turn towards her only to unexpectedly feel something press against your lips
>Cold Stone lets out a high pitched squeal that you swear could belong to a filly "Anon! You didnt tell me you twos were getting married! When is the wedding?!"
