This right here is 400 pages of awkward romance. May contain slight amount of ponies and dragons making out. Also may have a long loading...

The whole thing is based on fanfic "Like Fine Wine" by Sleepless Brony. I've really liked his work and felt like I needed to draw some sort of tribute to it. This comic does not perfectly cover the fanfic - I've cut the intro and all the hardcore stuff (thus ending may feel out of place) and I've edited/changed many little things due to time limits (aka. I've destroyed everything) Still hope you enjoy.

I've always thought that Young Adult Spike would have the voice of Elijah Wood doing Spyro's voice.

And of course, the David Icke Seminar on Draco Reptilians that Rarity sat through 3 minutes ago didn't help the situation, but she forgot that when Spike's scaly skin reminded her of her favorite purse. 
Wow, the kiss was so good, it gave Spike color in a black and white world like he was somebody special in Sin City or Schindler's List. 
I'm sure you could find a lot of MLP fanfictions that would be a mix of the 2. 
I guess when they finally make love he really will be glowing. 
Don't feel bad, Rarity. There's a damn reason our evolution made us fear dragons. The whole universe, actually....and the original universe they came from. Pittsburgh. 
PS this would also be a good design for a teenage spyro. 
Is Spyro a teenager in this flick? Or older?
And I understand Spike's pain. When you get older and bigger, people don't see you like the sweet smelling little kid anymore. They see you as a potential danger. You can't casually just talk to women and children anymore. I miss being able to do that as a teenager.

And then Spike uses his two-pronged dragon cock to plug both her holes.

No, seriously. That's what happens next in the fic. ^_^

Am I the only one who favourite this comic and watch it over and over again? Seriously, this is one of the best fanfiction I've seen since the other classical romantics were kinda dropped out.

I've been tired when alot of writer puts some "serious adult contents" into their story and thoughts that will make it better and... hotter. In my opinion, a great romantic story is the story which can give us alot of climax feelings without using adult content, even ecchi, and it depends on writer's talent. You sir! I think you have proven it right!! You are truly one of my favourite writer so far and I'm kinda like the other stuffs of yours, this time I will add you in my watch list and hope for more story, like this, from you!

I'm not good at English, so please forgive any mistake I made.

Very good! Well written and well drawn. The facial expressions match perfectly with the dialog of the original story. For some reason, I can see this paired up with Queen's "Who Want's To Live Forever?". Maybe because both Spike and Rarity are engaging in a romance that's will have to face the inevitable pain of immorality/long life, which comes with being a dragon. I prefer this to the original fan-fic, since the "Adult" section of the story ruined the romantic and dramatic tone of the story for me, but this cuts off when it needs to and leaves us satisfied. Once again, great work!

I agree that sex scenes stop the Romance (Because the ultimate goal the two characters are pursuing is sex/starting a family, so there is no more romantic build up if a sex scene occurs.)
