Chapter 1: Diamond Tiara Looks for a Date

“Ugh, the Ponyville School Dance is only a week away, and I still don’t have a date!” Diamond Tiara yelled as she threw her pillow at the wall, earning a groan from Silver Spoon.

“Calm down, DT, what’s the big deal?” Silver Spoon asked, getting a glare from Diamond Tiara.

“What’s the big deal?! I’m Diamond Dazzle Tiara; I should have all the dates!” Diamond Tiara whined as she picked up another pillow and quickly threw it. “It is so unfair! I’m the prettiest mare in school. Colts, and a couple of fillies, I guess, should be lining up to kiss my hooves!” Diamond Tiara yelled as she crossed her hooves in annoyance.

“Well, why don’t you just make some kind of contest?” Silver Spoon asked, earning a questioning glance from Diamond Tiara.

“Contest? Explain yourself,” Diamond Tiara demanded. With a smirk Silver Spoon pushed up her glasses.

“Well, what you could do is hold a contest to see who wants to take you to the dance, and then choose the best possible option!” Silver Spoon said, giggling at the prospect.

“Hmm, I like your thinking,” Diamond Tiara said with a smirk. “Let’s do it!” Diamond Tiara shouted as she smacked her hooves together. It was going to be a good day.

An hour of setting up posters around town and preparing a room later, the two friends sat at a table, waiting for their first bachelor...or bachelorette, she was good either way.

“I can’t wait to see who shows up first!” Diamond Tiara squealed in delight. As if answering her call, the door bell rang announcing their first guest. “Come in!”

“Hi, Diamond Tiara!” Snips greeted with a grin, earning a glare from Diamond Tiara.

“Get out,” Diamond Tiara muttered, earning a gasp from Snips.

“B-but I just got here,” he said as tears welled up in his eyes. Diamond Tiara however never stopped glaring and pointed at the door.

“Get out!” she yelled, causing Snips to quickly run out the door crying. “Jeez, I’d rather go out with Snails than that piece of-”

“Does that mean I win?!” Snails yelled as he poked his head in the door, smiling at Diamond Tiara. “Great! I’m gonna treat you like a-” He was swiftly interrupted by a pillow to the face, courtesy of Diamond Dazzle Tiara.

“Begone ye!” Diamond Tiara yelled as she continued to throw pillows at Snails, causing him to quickly run out the door. After a few seconds of silence, Silver Spoon looked at Diamond Tiara in confusion.

“Did you really just say-”

“Next!” Diamond Tiara yelled, Silver Spoon giggling next to her, as she ushered for the next candidate to enter. The door quickly opened revealing Spike, Twilight Sparkle’s number one assistant.

“Rarity! I’m here for your...you’re not Rarity?” Spike said as he took out the poster and read it. “This says I have the chance to take out the most beautiful mare in all of Ponyville.”

“Duh, and that’s me!” Diamond Tiara replied with a smirk as she admired her perfect hooves.

“But, the most beautiful mare in Ponyville is-”

“ME!” Diamond Tiara shouted as she threw a pillow at Spike, sending him out the door in a tumbling mess. “NEXT!” Diamond Tiara shouted. “Hopefully we’ll get a good candi-”

“Where’s Rarity?!” Rainbow Dash yelled as she quickly flew through the door. “I’m here to show her why she should take me to the dance!” Rainbow Dash said with a smirk, earning a glare from Diamond Tiara.

“Get out!” Diamond Tiara roared as she threw a barrage of pillows at Rainbow Dash.

“But...I….have….to…” Rainbow Dash muttered as she pushed against the onslaught of pillows, determined to reach her one and only.

“The poster refers to me, you idiot!” Diamond Tiara yelled as she continued to throw pillows. Twenty pillows later Rainbow Dash was finally out the door, leaving a silent Silver Spoon and a huffing Diamond Tiara.

“Well...we got some good candidates, haven’t we, DT?!” Silver Spoon asked with a smile, earning a glare from Diamond Tiara.

“Shut up, Silver Spoon,” Diamond said as she resisted the urge to hit Silver Spoon with her pillow. Sighing in defeat Diamond Tiara got up from her chair and made her way across the room. “I give up. Nopony worthwhile is going to-”

“Uh, are the auditions still open?” Apple Bloom asked as she poked her head through the door.

“Apple Bloom?!” Diamond Tiara yelled in shock. “What are you doing here?!”

“Ah’m here to see if ah could git a date with the prettiest mare in school,” Apple Bloom said with a smile as she walked up to Diamond Tiara. “So...what do ah do?” Apple Bloom asked with a tilt of her head, earning a blush from Diamond Tiara.

“D-do you mean...me?” Diamond Tiara asked, looking away in embarrassment.

“Of course ah do!” Apple Bloom said as she wrapped a hoof around Diamond Tiara’s neck. “Who do ya think ah’m talkin’ about? Rarity?” Apple Bloom scoffed at the notion.

“B-but I’m always mean to you,” Diamond Tiara said as she finally looked at Apple Bloom. “What reason do you have to like me, let alone take me on a date?”

“Ah have one good reason, and it’s all ah need,” Apple Bloom said as she nuzzled Diamond Tiara. “Yer hot!” Apple Bloom said, causing Diamond Tiara to giggle.

“Well, I guess that’s good enough for me!” Diamond Tiara said as she nuzzled Apple Bloom. “See ya, Silver Spoon, I have a date!” And with that Diamond Tiara and Apple Bloom ran off into the sunset, leaving Silver Spoon all alone.

“Well, this sucks, I was hoping DT would take me to the dance,” Silver Spoon grumbled as she crossed her hooves in annoyance, when Sweetie Belle popped in.

“Excuse me, but I saw this poster and was wondering if you found a date yet?” Sweetie asked, earning a tender smile from Silver Spoon.

“That’ll do,” Silver Spoon said as she licked her lips. S’gonna be a good day.
