A Night With Apple Wine (closed: Steel)

Recommended Posts

"Tarnarion!" Applejack huffed as a she blew stray strands of forelocks away from her eyes. "I was trying to stay clean!" She smirked and trotted away from the campfire she had just set up. She'd light it later, when the sun went down and her paramour appeared. 

 

She had spent all afternoon setting up the perfect place to spend an evening with the lovely Rarity. They had spent lots of time together over the past few months. The last date they had been on had turned into somewhat of a mystery cruisethat had thankfully had a good conclusion! AJ had decided to wear her special broach tonight. The same one that had been lost and then found on their previous adventure. 

 

Even the thought of Rarity made AJ's heart beat faster. She felt so good when the unicorn was around.  Even though they were so different being together felt so right! 

 

AJ had put up an extra large and quite 'fancy tent. There was food to roast over the fire,sweets, and of course ample amounts of apple wine. Everything was ready. She trotted up the orchard road, hoping she'd soon see her beloved...

How exciting!
Well, she said that all the time. How could anypony blame her, however? To love and be loved, to adore and be adored in equal measure, was a thrilling sensation. To lose yourself in the passion of another's emotion was a whirlwind of terrifying, lovely highs and lows that threatened to strike down the unprepared romantic. And she was happy to have found in another the sort of swirling ocean that she could be lost in their tides happily. Sometimes it was an adventure in the skies but often times it was a simple matter of a simple date at an orchard, surrounding by the sweet scents of apples. She could forgive the dirt and the 'country' smell just this once- or, well, any time Applejack was around. Sometimes hopeless romanticism, or her approximation of it, could allow for such delightful deception.

 

Applejack was kind enough to set the date up. After the excitement of their previous engagement she was more than happy to allow for her paramour to develop the night's sensations of her own accord. Rarity made sure to cut her day short. The boutique had a somewhat dull season ahead of it- not her fault, but the seasons sometimes caught her at a weak point. She would never admit it out loud but even she sometimes was caught flat hooved by trends. It wouldn't take long for her to recover but it did mean that she had only seven hours of work to do at the boutique today and with her her growing fashion empire in good hooves she had the time to do this. Not that she wouldn't have forced it to happen anyway. Work could wait, at least sometimes, when personal need arose.

"Heeeeellllooooo Applejack!" Rarity trilled as she approached the campsite. A roaring fire, a nice tent, and the slow crawl of the evening as the sun started to yield to the moon made for a beautiful night out. It was complimented by the mare herself, who had a stray collection of hay seemingly confounded her.

Applejack heard Rarity'svoice and spotted the unicorn as she rounded gnarled old apple tree at the edge of the orchard. It was a favorite of hers, leftover from a bygone era of the farm.

 

"Well hi there Rarity!" She trotted up to her love, a huge grin on her face. "I'm so glad yah could meet me here! It's gonna be a really nice night." She came in closer, previous sips of apple wine enboldening her, and nuzzled up briefly before leaving a kiss on Rarity's cheek.

 

AJ hid her blush by turning towards the trail back to the campsite. "Right this way!" She lead the way at a walk, calming herself as she went. So they were at the site. The sun was starting to set as AJ showed Rares where she could set down her bag.

 

"I figure we'll get the fire started and then right over there," She pointed a hoof toward a small part between two apple trees. "Is a perfect view for sunset."

It was the Apple wine doing the talking- or more precisely, Applejack's desire for the apple wine to do the talking. There was only the barest hint of its aroma on her lips and she knew Applejack well enough to know that it took a lot to get her in any way moved from her rocky, centered self when it came to alcohol. Applejack still had a slight problem allowing her romantic intimacy get the better of herself and searched for...excuses. At least, that's how Rarity interpreted it. And she interpreted Applejack's kiss quite warmly, returning with a kiss of her own. She could get lost in that moment right there and then but they had a job to do. That job was getting this place up to snuff for the two of them. "Well, I suppose it is only fitting. We will need a fire to bundle up close to, no?" She said with a laugh.

 

She was no good when it came to starting fires. It was something she had learned in filly scouts and used on her camping trips but honestly if you had somepony else available and willing to do it, why get yourself involved? She wouldn't leave her mare alone, of course. Perish the thought of Rarity being anything less than the single greatest marefriend in the history of the concept, after all. Her horn lit and found a ragtag pile of sticks and some rocks and moved them to the place Applejack had intended. She wasn't one to organize that pile of course, that was for Applejack. She moved on to the tent, moving it and positioning it just so. "Such a wonderful idea, Applejack. I hope your farm doesn't need you tonight. Or in the morning, for that matter," she said with a smirk.

After a bit more doing the campsite was looking Rarity certified. The farm mare grinned and used her knowhow and skills to bring the stocks and rocks her mare had gathered with her magic into the assembly she had been working on. Soon it was all setup for a roaring fire which she'd light after watching the sunset.

 

AJ's cheeks turned a shade more rosy at the comment about the following morning. She cleared her throat to keep her mind on track and nodded towards the stop she had set up for viewing the sunset.

 

"Mac had things under control at the farm. Well him and Abby's willing to chip in too," she laughed softly and came up next to the unicorn. "Nopony's expectin' to hear from me til later tomorrow." She nuzzled Rarity softly on the neck and nudged her towards the two trees on the hillside up ahead." There were few things that topped the farm on her list but time with Rarity had started topping them all.

 

"Right this way," They made their way to the spot which had been prepared with a soft blanket, a couple pillows, a bottle of apple wine, and two glasses. "I set this part up myself," AJ grinned, proud of herself for hopefully setting things up the way Rares would like.

It was well and good that the farm was in the hooves of the other Apples this evening. While it would be impossible to imagine for a moment or more the Orchard without the efforts of Applejack at the forefront that did not mean that it necessarily required the sacrifice of all her time and vitality. Indeed, no mare in Equestria deserved a rest as much as she did. She worked herself to the nub of her hooves and then some every day so that her family may prosper. It was one of her many great qualities, her outstanding work ethic, but like several others it came with a devotion that bordered on psychotic. Breaking her away from the orchard required nearly an act of divine will. And Twilight was busy today, so it would fall upon the well-defined shoulders of Rarity to do it. She was very much up for the task, wasn't she Applejack?

 

Applejack nuzzled Rarity and Rarity replied by kissing the top of her mare's forehead, lost in the moment and warmth that the two created uniquely between each other. It was not so strange that they would find each other so attracted to one another. They both knew the value of work and while Rarity's brand was growing larger across Equestria, Applejack worked to maintain the legendary imprint her family name had on the world. Together, they would work on something even newer and grander: Each other. And that would require a lot of work because have you seen Applejack's mane after a day in the fields? She wasn't one to brag about her work but Rarity truly was a miracle worker when it came to the combating of split ends in her golden-maned paramour.

 

She giggled as she was taken to their camp. It was rustic and plain but she could tell that Applejack had put the effort into what she could. "Oooh, it looks lovely, Applejack," she said as she took her seat. She took the glasses and bottle and poured both of them, patting the table side opposite hers. "Now rest dear. You've been so very busy lately!"

AJ melted at the mere brush of Rarity's muzzle on her forehead. Something about the gesture was kind and also displayed just a hint of dominance. AJ didn't shy away from it, she liked a mare that could be in charge. And of course Rares could! She was a buisness mare in her own right, to the level with, if not moreso than AJ herself. She had her whole family to help with Sweet Aaple Acres. Rares ran her buisness on her own!

 

They snuggled down onto the blanket, poured some wine and prepared to watch the sunset. As both mares fixed their eyes on the firey orb making its slow decent at Celestial bidding, AJ found her eyes drawn to the figure of the mare next to her.

 

Everything about Rarity set AJ's world on fire. Sure she was beautiful in frame and figure but she had brains and a heart as big as tge Appaloosa plains. She'd let on her true heart for the unicorn quite a while ago now but there was so much more happening inside her that she just couldn't put into words.

 

AJ sipped her wine, the feeling of the drink relaxing her muscles little by little. She leaned in closer as the sun turned the sky deep red and orange. 

 

"Beautiful, ain't it?"

It was in smaller moments that Rarity could allow herself to soak in the true beauty of the land around her. She would never be a mare who would enjoy the earthen works as much as her paramount but she knew instinctually how the easy tones melted together seamlessly in nature's grand design. Did the pegasi who control the skies, the Princess who moves the heavens above, and this beautiful mare alongside her ever register the design they unknowingly created? If only everything could work so wonderfully, yes? The greatest expression of this beauty was, of course, Applejack herself.

 

Her strength came through in her taut muscles which moved up and down her body. Not a part of her was weak, but it was real, well-bred muscle. She was less bulky in places than Rainbow Dash but had a more consistent firmness to her. Too much bulk could easily become distracting, even unattractive if not clothed well. But Applejack's entire body was chiseled and formed just so. She had the figure to support this mass while still looking gorgeous whenever she put in any effort whatsoever. Toned, fit, and beautiful, and that was before she did so much as blink once more and give thought to her boundless gifts in areas that mattered so much more than physicality.

 

Not that her physicality wasn't very appreciated.


"It is quite beautiful," she replied, speaking this time about the downing of the sun and the hues of light that radiated from it. She took a drink of her wine, a sip really. She smacked her lips daintily. "Ahh, delicious and rich as expected. What variety did you use this time?" She asked as she draped herself over Applejack, the concept of personal space having lost meaning.

AJ let out a relaxed breath as Rarity laid out across the blanket, allowing no personal space whatsoever. The farmmare was ever so happy with the notion, allowing herself as much contact as she could with her beautiful paramour. The two of them, being build so very differently, came together with an easy grace. She smiled as Rarity reflected on the wine in her cup. AJ took another sip of her own and glanced over.

 

"This here's from last autumn actually," She lifted her cup and swirled it for a moment before taking another sip. Russett golds, some sweet crisps, and a few good old fashioned smith's in there to give it a mellow blend with just a hint of lift at the end." She recited the phrases that went with the year's vintage. "It's good un'." AJ finished in her simple straight forward manner. 

 

The sun dipped lower and AJ leaned in, resting her head on Rarity's shoulder. "Sure am glad you could make it out tonight," She reached up for a quick soft nip to the ear. "Been needin' some time away, the both of us,"

She wanted to just sit there in silence. More than rest she enjoyed the quiet- well, when it was appropriate. She was a busybody with a busy body much of the time and she knew the value of hard work. But that just made the quiet all the sweeter. The warmth, all the better. "This is a fine vintage, then. I remember when it released. I don't know why it didn't do better," she said with a sigh. Truth was that not everything you did would succeed, even if it should in theory. Rarity's autumn line had itself been somewhat of a dud commercially. She was proud of the work but...well, not everything could be a hit. "Still, I love it. What are you doing with the leftover bottles?" She asked as she leaned more into the muscles of her love.

 

She wanted to stay, stay right there, stay in Ponyville. But what Applejack said about needing time away hit closer than she'd like. She allowed her mare to talk about her wine fir a while, and then a few moments more. Her mind wandered, her mind raced, her mind tried to remain on anything but what she had to say. It was, after all, one of many reasons she had so desperately wanted this night alone with Applejack. "Oh, how we both needed. Of course I'd rather have time away in relaxation than time away from Ponyville, but work calls out, whether that is here or in Neighpon," she said with a discontented humph.

AJ reveled in pressure of her love's body pressing into her own. It felt so close, so together. Just what she wanted, for this moment, for as long as it would last. Rarity mentioned Neighpon and AJ's stomach tightened for a beat. She didn't want Rarity's work to whisk her that far away...well she did and didn't. The didn't for selfish reasons a'course. Travelling far and wide was part of Rarity's profession, her success. She would never ask her love to stop any of what she did. However, when the chance to be alone, in their home town, came to be...well those were moments to be savored like apple wine on the tongue.

 

"Hmm, I'm not sure either," She thought over the wine's vintage. "Buuut, when it don't sell that means more stored up in the cellars for night like this," She leaned down and kissed the mare full on the muzzle. She pressed herself close, filling her senses with her paramour and obsession. The wine was already making it easier for the apple mare to just let go. After a while she let up and leaned back a little, taking in a breath of night air. The sun had all but set now, the last rays flashing over the horizon, reflecting off Rarity's gem like eyes.

 

"So, uh," She laughed softly, overcome with emotion, with desire. "Ready to go get the fire started?" She laughed again. "The uh, actual campfire I mean. I've got some treats for us if yer game?"

She supposed there was something to be said for the failures of the past being remade into the successes of the present. Anypony who ran a business understood the necessity of such a belief. Pivoting away from that which failed was hard enough, but in order to truly turn a loss into a gain you needed to know how to use every scrap of cloth, every drop of drink. And tonight's gain was one of shared warmth and affection because while Applejack was never shy about her feelings, not once you broke her down, she became extra mindful of her emotions when she was a little...liquored up. Of course, Applejack could hold her drink far batter than Rarity yet it was the farmer who was beside herself in the glow of the moment. That meant she had either been drinking a lot already, or she just wanted an excuse. Rarity smirked as Applejack got especially affectionate. She knew an excuse when she saw one, and indulged both herself and her little farmer for a few moments, wrapping her tail around Applejack's upper legs in a controlling manner and keeping her close until the farmer pulled off, asking about the fire.

 

"Of course. Why, we can't have a night among the stars without some fire, now can we?" She asked with a laugh, releasing her farmer and getting up herself. She'd rather Applejack already have the fire started already but it was a matter of record that Applejack seemed to enjoy putting on a show of effort for her, as if such compensation was needed. Her horn lit up and she pulled several logs out of their positions near the camp- Applejack had prepared something, of course- and around the fire pit, and a few off to the site for good measure to sit on. She brushed one off with her tail and sat down, their drinks soon joining them nearby. "Now, what snacks did you say you had prepared?"
