Come Fly With Me (closed Steel) AppulDash


Recommended Posts

RD was stoked! The mare hustled out of Wonderbolts headquarters after her shift with a bunch of new recruits, making her way directly to the Sweet Apple Acres farmhouse. The whole thing was planned! She had Mac and Abby on child care duty and a whole afternoon/evening for just her and her mare!

 

RD had been working extra hard on her relationship with the most wonderful mare in the whole world and the surprise she had in store was just another step in that direction.

 

She'd stopped by the castle just last night to pick up a very special vial from the Princess. Of course Twilight had warned her of the possible dangers but she knew AJ would be totally fine! 

 

RD ducked into the farmhouse, trotting straight to the bathroom to clean up. She was going to be looking and smelling great for this event! She'd warned AJ they would be doing something fun but not fancy so no need to go all out with the grooming. Just the basics, just how AJ liked it!

 

Once she was ready she trotted out to meet AJ and get their afternoon rolling! Rainbow made her way to the front gates of the farm here She'd asked AJ to meet her...

Applejack worked her tail off as quickly as she could, which were statements that on their own should drive up some concern. After all, she was a mare who loved herself some hard work and loved pushing herself, and had a hankering for speed when she knew she could do the job right. So she mowed down the trees, bucking one after another, filling them up and allowing Big Mac to take them in. He was homebound today on account of Sugar Belle being a little ill so it was just as well he handled that aspect of it, while Abby chipped in with the kids. The key point for Applejack was that between her wild bucking, ability to focus on bucking, and her quickness, she got her work done early. Well, early in most days' account, but just in time on this fine sunny day because she had plans with Rainbow. Well, Rainbow had the plans and Applejack was still operating in the dark, but who was to say that was a bad thing?

 

When she finished she finally made her way inside, the warmth and cheer of the family spilling out. Her kids were being little rugrat troublemakers and that was just as well since the time would come when they wouldn't be able to do so. Apple Bloom did her best to corral them and get some food going and Big Mac was here, there, everywhere. Home was loud and happy and wonderful, but she needed a break. Rainbow knew she needed a break and apparently she had plans made for them. Well, Applejack was never one to deny her wife's agenda and was happy to have the load off of her back. Of course she didn't know just what it was that was planned, but that only made it all the more exciting for her, didn't it? Rainbow was a smart gal and Applejack was up for anything that was nice, fun, relaxing, and very, very stress free.

 

She cleaned herself off- Rainbow said nothing too fancy, just the way Applejack liked it- and made her way out. There was a picnic table not far from the home now and she made herself comfortable, even as she snickered at Big Mac's exaggerated work face as he went by. It was rare that she was allowed to relax and he work, so of course she had to rub it in ever so little. From her seat she saw her flighty wife arrive and head inside, though Applejack didn't bother moving. Only when Rainbow exited did she make herself known. "RD, over here!" She waved, smiling as the day of nice, fun, and relaxing relaxation started up!

Rainbow grinned, making her way over to her wife's side.

 

"Hey there babe!" She nuzzled AJ softly on the cheek and sat down next to her at the picnic table. "So! You ready for some fun?"

 

She had put on some super cool sunglasses and she brought them down, looking over the top with a hint of danger sparkling in her eyes. "I've got something pretty cool planned!"

 

RD was super proud of her idea and the anticipation was killing her just a liiiiittle bit!

She nuzzled her mare back before placing a small kiss on her cheek. Her mare seemed rather excited, which made Applejack wonder just what the heck she had in her mind. She was an excitable type and a thrill seeker, so she wondered just what it would be. If it took her into a death trap though she'd be cross. Applejack was far too maternal to repeat the mistakes of others in the Apple clan. "Nice seein' ya, fast-pass. How's tha show treating you?" She said as she looked Rainbow over. She did that all the time anyway but this time ahe had to try and decipher what it was she had in mind.

 

Yep. It was gonna be a death trap of some kind. Rainbow 'Danger' Dash it was. She must have been cooped up mentally because she had a dangerous glint to her eyes. Applejack liked that glint a lot of the time and she reckoned there was no problem with it now, one way or another. When her wife had a plan it was foolhardy to try and talk her out of it. "I'm plum excited ta try whatever it is thats rockin' 'round yer brain," she said as she gently mussied up Rainbow's colorful mane. "Ah hope it involves a nice, relaxing day by tha pond. I could do with a dip," she said with a giant grin, knowing all the while that it was impossible. No matter what though, she knew it would be a whale of a time.

"Welllll, not exactly a relaxing day by the pond..." She gave a playful half grin. "Maybe above the pond?"

 

The pegasus took the vial she'd been carrying and showed it to AJ. It wasn't like she was going to trick the mare into taking it after all!  

 

"So, I talked Twilight into mixing this up for us," She winked playfully. "Any guesses as to what it does?"

Applejack's eyebrows raised up, arched significantly over where they should be. What was it that she had Twilight cook up? The mind begged to not consider the possibilities, but she was a trusting mare who was given to believing her wife and one of her best friends wouldn't do something crazy like grant her flight. Or make her into a giant. Both would make bucking difficult for her and she sure did enjoy bucking. She picked up the potion and sniffed it. "Well, it smells like...blueberries? So Ah'm reckoning it...." her mind blanked. "Swaps bodies?" She waited a moment, a pregnant pause. "Okay, that sounds stupid. What does it do?"

"Actually, kinda like a body swap... but not!" She leaned in close and sniffed. When she raised her head she found herself muzzle to muzzle with her mare. AJ smelled like alfalfa and sweet apples. RD loved that smell. It was safety and understanding. Comfort and strength to the pegasus. She had become much less irratic as of late, however this idea might end up being a throw back.

 

"Twi really did a number on this to get it just right! It will grant you wings and speed like mine!" She glanced up. "I've always wanted to share the sky with you AJ!"

 

She cringed a little, wondering how AJ would respond...

Well, she had to get some points for getting some form of swap right, though not many. Wasn't much of a swap, more like a change. Giving Applejack a pair of wings? Well, that only made sense. She had always suspected that being ground-bound herself irked some sensibility of Rainbow's that she wasn't much liable to speak about. But gaining Rainbow's speed? That was a whole kit and caboodle removed from just having wings. That mare could outfly thought itself if she was given to and the possibility that now she'd have to face competition from...well, herself really, was strange. And for Applejack it was a bit strange. Not bad. Just weird. She didn't much want to be streaking across the sky in any normal fashion, but flying with RD? Well, that was something she could abide by just fine, she reckoned.

 

"Huh. Must be a heck of a potion. How'd Twi even make it?" She asked as she took it in hoof, roughly putting her Stetson on the rainbow maned Wonderbolt as she leaned against a tree inspecting the potion. It had a mixture of colors that should have blended but didn't, like they were different layers and consistencies. Yet when she shook it, they moved like liquid only to resettle back in the same layers. She shrugged. "Well, either way. I mean, you give me yer wings combined with tha rest of mah physical prowess, Ah might as well be takin' yer place on the Wonderbolts," she said with faux seriousness as she turned back towards her wife and jabbed a hoof in her chest playfully. "Y'all ain't gettin' lazy now, ain'tcha?"

RD watched as AJ inspected the concoction. She had no idea how Twi had conjured up what was in the vial. All she knew was she was going to be helping Twi and Spike clean the castle library a week from today as payment. She pressed that thought from her mind. Books and dust? Double yuck!! However, it was worth it to spend this time with her mare.

 

"Oh, I'm not sure about that!" She commented as AJ got playfully competitive with her. "She did say that you should be able to take to it really quickly due to the potion." RD hadn't even thought about AJ besting her up there. She did best her at pretty much everything else already! 

 

"I just figured we could have an exciting time up there together!" She blushed a little, thinking of a special spit in the clouds she had picked to finish off their adventure in.

 

"Ready for your wings AJ?"

Applejack smiled and shook her head. Oh, she could *smell* it on Rainbow. The desperation for AJ to be down for this so she could share the sky, if only just this once. It was very sweet of her, like AJ wanting to share some of her old family traditions. If it had been anypony else at any other time in any other place, Applejack'd be offended. She was a bonafide all-natural, all-Equestrian, all Apple-family bred and toned Earth Pony, honey. But she knew where Rainbow's heart was and it was buried deep in Applejack's own breast. Having borrowed that from her already, why not get the wings to boot? She pulled her mare in close, harsh and strong, ruffling her mane.
She wiggled the potion. "Well, what're we waitin' for then?" She said as she immediately downed the potion in all of its thick glory.

Rainbow felt her heart flutter as her mare pulled her roughly in. She loved when AJ handled her a bit roughly, she was one of the few that would attempt such a notion. RD loved her for that...and so much more! 

 

"I've always wanted to share," She nodded upwards. "Up there with you AJ! Probably shouldn't have asked Twi to infuse my speed into this though...I know you're gonna want to race!" She laughed, trying to bury the sudden apprehension at AJ besting her in the one thing she always exceled at. Still, if this was a test of her new way of thinking, it was a good one!

 

The pegasus watched and waited for a few seconds, wondering how the potion would take affect...

Applejack took a deep breath. "Well, soon you'll have yer wish," she said with a smile. It was sweet of Rainbow Dash to share this with her. She knew her fair share of pegasi that valued their ability to get out, high in the sky, away from the grounders. It was yet another sign of their love, not that they needed it, that she was looking to share the sky and had gone to such great lengths to do so. It had been one of the few barriers in their relationship. Rainbow Dash knew things of this world that Applejack was ignorant of and experienced it in a way that Applejack could not. Now, if only for a small while, that would no longer be the case.

She downed the potion quick. For a few seconds, it felt like nothing was happening. She turned to her wife. "Ya sure that Twi didn't-" she started before a violent surge of electricity seemed to shoot across her whole body. Then again, and again, faster and faster until it was like she was in the middle of a thunderstorm. It looked dramatic but it didn't hurt as much as it seemed. Then she fell over, mostly out of dizziness. Then the magic really went to work. her bones hollowed out ever slightly. Her skeletal structure started to re-arrange itself. Her fat distribution moved, her muscles thinned and changed and started to travel into her new appendages. Her fur grew a slightly different texture, more feathery and her ears shifted ever slightly. 

It was enough to cause a mare to continue to twitch and collapse as she tried to get up not once, but twice. Finally on her side, she decided to push herself back up- and subconsciously used  her new wings to do so. She looked down, saw the wings, and then they snapped back to her out of momentary shock- she fellt back down, face first.
A pregnant pause.
"...Could ya help me up, RD?" Asked the pegasus Applejack, who was still trying to come to terms with all the small senses that a pegasi had and the loss of equally small senses she no longer had.

RD was shocked! She hadn't expected such a dramatic change! She'd asked Twi for a potion to give her wife wings but this... this was something more indeed! AJ was now well and truly a pegasus pony! Rainbow gulped back an explication and went to AJ's side.

 

"Sure," She cleared her throat as the word reached a high pitched and gravelly octave reserved for RD's moments of extreme panic and extreme pleasure. "Sure AJ, I got you!" She reached down, helping the once earth pony to her hooves.

 

"Dang AJ!" There was that high pitch voice again. "You're almost as hot as a pagesus as you are as an earth pony!" A quick assessment told RD she'd have a run for her bits in the air and in the bedroom with this winged farm mare!

 

"So, uh," She stretched out her cyan wings as she spoke. "You think you know how to use those things?" Thought it had certainly supplied the body type she wasn't sure if the potion had imbued working use knowledge or not...

It was hard for Applejack to honestly and truthfully register most of RD's change in emotion. She was still dealing with her own sensory issues. As an Earth Pony, she had always been connected to the Earth below her. It sung in her hooves and even when she was just walking around there was a certain life, a certain energy, that she felt connected to. You were never truly alone as an earth pony because the land was always there. Now that was gone. The dirt was dirt. She had rarely taken note of how it had felt before but now that she lost it she noticed it acutely. She kneaded the dirt below her hopefully before abandoning it, shaking her head and trying to regain her senses. Well, her new senses. She had lost the sense of being an Earth pony but she had gained the senses of a pegasus. The water vapor around her seemed so acute and noticeable in its trillions of droplets, fading into her subconscious. The way the wind seemed to flow through her as if she didn't exist. Every part of her seemed like it should be cold but wasn't. She didn't know how to describe it, but she felt new and weird.

 

She took a deep breath.
"Almost?" She asked with as much self-assuredness as she could muster. "Now Ah'm thinking you only liked me 'cause Ah couldn't chase after you!" She laughed, then brushed herself against RD, using her as a stabilizer. Then she let go and took a few steps, unfolding her wings. They felt weird. Pegasus ponies had wings that were smaller than they should have been in order to fly and hers were no different, but compared to her farm-bred and muscled body they seemed even smaller. She flapped them. They didn't do so in sync. Left and then right- right, then left. She sighed and then started flapping them in sync. First slow, then faster until her body was fighting itself to stay grounded. She was anything but confident. "Uhh, maybe? Ah'm gonna crash for sure but...well, lead the way Wonderbolt."

Rainbow gave Appuls a few minutes to adjust. It would have taken any lesser earth pony hours to get used to what had happened within the span of a few minutes. But not AJ, she was as resilient as they came! RD still wasn't sure if this was a fun experiment she had brought upon them or a curse. She had no idea how long her farm mare was going to be a winged equine!

 

"Ah," She joked half heartedly. "I think I did most of the chasing to win you over Applejack," She winked. "There were tons of mares and stallions out there that wanted you, it was quite a fight!" She felt uneasy watching the normally confident and strong AJ get used to having wings and apparently more than that. Something about her was definitely altered. Had she lost her earth pony senses too?

 

"You gotta flap em' together!" She stood in front of Applejack and moved her wings slowly up and down. Soon enough AJ was getting a handle on things. Enough that her hooves were barely on solid ground anymore. 

 

"Just take it easy at first AJ, that's how all the new fliers learn. Don't want you getting banged up in a crash before we have a chance to race!"

 

She lifted off a little, hovering and waiting for AJ to do the same...if she could.

Applejack was a mare who loves herself the truth but she didn't demand the same from others. If she had, she would have to punish Rainbow something fierce. She knew that not many ponies were pursuing her, not anymore. When she was a young mare she was rather...popular. She had her dalliances. But her rush into the fields and devotion to her work meant that at that critical age when other ponies were fooling about and making mistakes into miracles, her talks of farming, family planning, and life-long relationships scared a few away. Didn't much matter when it came time for the dances and fairs. She was attractive and friendly, a few dances never hurt anypony. But her as an actual dating commodity? Only...three serious prospects. Rainbow was the fastest. Couldn't get away from her! Probably why the fly girl won.

 

By the time her wife made sure to tell her to flap in sync in sync she was already doing so, but it still helped her. She needed that reminder. A pegasus was born with certain instincts that while in need of refinement ensured that they had the necessary instinctual tools to succeed. Being lifted off the ground under her own power was a strange development and keeping Rainbow's advice firmly lodged in the forefront of her mind was oddly useful. "Together, together, together..." she repeated nearly under her breath, steadying herself against Rainbow as she got her wings in a rhythm that wouldn't task her attention too much.


After a few more moments she felt confident enough to let go of Rainbow, who responded by hovering away from here. "Can't get away from me that easily, flygirl," Applejack chuckled as she started to breath deep. One thrust of her wings followed by another she pushed herself up, trying to hover and failing at times. Her altitude hampered by her bottom half dangling and sometimes kicking out of habit and no small amount of deep ingrained uncomfortable sensibility. In fits and starts though she managed to raise herself until she was nearly even with Rainbow. "See? No escape."
