Donny's Boy's Seeking Beauty

Rarity and Pinkie Pie? You'd think Rarity'd be too boring for Pinkie, and Pinkie'd be too crazy for Rarity... but they actually fit together pretty darn well.

[Shipping] • 30,600 words
Rarity has accomplished everything she’s dreamt of accomplishing, and she couldn’t be happier. At least, that’s what she thinks, until an old friend comes unexpectedly bouncing back into her life.

Anyone going? I'll be there both days. Look for the guy in the Wonderbolts flightsuit with a Mare Do Well (my girlfriend) never too far behind. Feel free to say hi!

Kwakerjak's Wild, Sweet & Cool

A well-written story, based on a unique idea; the author excels at weaving his narrative seamlessly in and out of the canon of the show while providing his own take on its events and situations (and even explains why a world full of ponies would have saddles!). As an added bonus, you'll have a much better understanding of the mechanics of flight by the end.

After reading a book by Spitfire's personal trainer, Rainbow Dash decides that the best way to get closer to her ultimate goal of joining the Wonderbolts is to add strength training to her practices by having one of her friends ride her. However, when she decides that Twilight Sparkle is just the mare for the job, the pegasus gets a bit more than she bargained for.

Arkensaw Pinkerton's Fixing Up Miss Smartypants

PhantomFox's Sunny Skies All Day Long is often pointed to as a perfect "episode" fic - it's the sort of thing that could believably happen in the show itself without any real changes. I think the same way about today's Vault entry... if the show was targeting a slightly older demographic, that is.

[Shipping][Comedy] • 50,200 words
Big Macintosh had a perfectly good reason for taking Twilight's doll; he wanted to use it to finally start a conversation with her. But Applejack's having none of it, Rarity's getting the wrong idea about everything, and the Cutie Mark Crusader Matchmakers are about to really throw a spanner in the works! A comedy of errors launching a full fleet of ships.

Hit the break for a few words from the good Mr. Pinkerton himself, along with links to Fixing Up Miss Smartypants out on the ponynet. Don't forget to grab a copy in your favorite ebook format over at the Downloads page, hot off the digital press!

As Foretold In Revelations...

...I have returned. And embarrassingly have been too swamped with jetlag and playing catch-up at work, home, and online that I flat-out haven't had time to complete my usual work for a Vault entry this week, though I very much wanted to have one. I kinda feel guilty taking three weeks off. If it's any consolation to you (and me), I don't have any extended trips planned in the foreseeable future, so this sort of thing shouldn't happen again, and regular Vault service will resume next week.

I did want to take a moment to draw your attention to the good work of the My Little Pony Fan Labor Wiki. It aims to be the Wikipedia of all things related to the Friendship is Magic fandom: an unbiased information resource for all appropriate content (including fan fiction), editable by anyone and without regard for the popularity of a given work or its creator. They could use your help, 'cause in case you haven't noticed, our fandom produces a lot of work - if you're interested, go check them out!
