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.

ok one of my favorite frames is when Rarity says "You sly young thing". The portrayal of characters is spot on and the expressions are spectacular. :)

Rarity is not drunk enough to make out with a dragon. But that can be fixed!

And now Spike is thinking about how this would work. You know, mechanically. He's pretending not to, but he is.

If there is a law against pony-dragon relationships, it's unjust, and I'm sure you have enough political influence to get it repealed. Or at least to get a pardon for violating it.

What do you know. Spike's confession didn't cause a literal explosion after all. I guess you can stop ducking and covering now.

Rares, if you were going to feel such a strong need to compensate for your admission, maybe you should have kept your first reaction to Spike to yourself. You just look silly sitting there contradicting clearly true statements.

Are they drinking wine out of shot glasses? Because those look like shot glasses to me. They're definitely not wine glasses.

That was So Great to Read! Saw this on 4chan and just thought it would be another comic that just led to some rule 34 stuff, but man, was I wrong haha. I really like how you interpret Spike to look like when he's a young adult, and I wouldn't mind seeing this as an actual animation sometime. Well done!

Wow, that was great.  I'd nearly forgotten the quality of writing from Sleepless (may his unfinished work rest in peace) and this comic brings it to life beautifully and faithfully.  The camera direction was superb for establishing those important unspoken bits and the expressions were priceless.  An incredibly heartfelt story given proper justice!

Sir, I may not be a brony nor do I have any advanced knowledge of the show or its characters, but this work of yours really touched me. If there was ever some artwork, story or anything that represented the relationship between these two characters with utmost respect and passion, it is this very flashcomic/fanfic story. There is no rating system for this, but I'll rate it anyway because it deserves a full score.
 
:star::star::star::star::star: 5/5 stars. The storyboard artwork looks fantastic, the adaptation, pacing, silent moments, drama, etc. were all set perfectly, and you did an amazing job overall. I really don't have a single complaint and it's amazing that even though I am sick of love stories (because they're everywhere), this here restored my faith in storytellers and artists of a certain fandom.

I tip my hat to you, your work and sleeplessbrony and his work, it was simply phenomenal :clap: I agree with everyone here who loves this as much as I do and congratulate you and the original author for making my heart smile today! :milk:

That is all. Thank you and good day to you and everyone!

Well, I cannot consider myself an authentic "brony" as to this very day I have never watched anything related to MLP:FIM, nor do I generally know much about the characters involved--- their personalities, their abilities & talents, their relationships with one another... but I must say after taking the liberty of thoroughly this comic here, a part of me simply HAD to read the official fanfic, and... Let's just I haven't read a good story in years; as far as I'm concerned, it was VERY well written, and having your comic to somewhat compliment it really helped... :reading:


Aside from the maturing connection between Spike & Rarity, the steady pace, and the down-to-earth dialogue, I liked how there was a cocktail of emotions set in place that seemed evenly balanced for this fanfic to fall short of becoming too sappy even for my taste; feelings of surprise, anxiety, honesty, guilt, doubt, fear, dread, comfort, empathy, acceptance, curiosity, romance, contentment... It's all there! :nod:


I found this story to be truly heartfelt, I actually felt engaged. I commend both your work and the original author's. If you haven't already, please present more of these in the future! :clap:
