The Delay for a PartyThe following is a story within the plot of the episode "Sweet and Elite".
"I HAVE TO PROPOSE TO HER!" wailed Spike, trying to pull himself out of Griffy's grasp.
Griffy was holding Spike by his hind feet while the young Dragon was trying to break free of the Pygmy Griffin's grasp, digging his front claws into the soil in attempts to break free. Twilight Sparkle's birthday was happening that day and the rest of their gang had gone to Canterlot to celebrate it there where Rarity was staying for a while.
"There are two problems with that", said Griffy, "One: you are to young for marrage. Two: You are a different species than Rarity"
"C'mon!" complained Spike.
"We have to miss Twilight's birthday party in Canterlot because of this", moaned Griffy.
After the main six returned to Ponyville, Rarity told Spike and Griffy what she lied to the Canterlot Ponies about.
"I may have passed you off as a young Pony who is a local housekeeper", Rarity said to Spike, feeling rather ashamed.
The Beautiful DreamBEFORE YOU READ THIS, READ THE DESCRIPTION FIRST
On a beautiful night, in the Ponyville park, in the leaves of the big Red Maple Tree, Griffy slept peacefully in his pillow-made bed. It was all he could afford for something to sleep in that was his size while living in a Tree.
He began to have a happy dream that would make one who originally came from an Everfree Forest life shed tears of joy. In the dream, Griffy found himself back in his home Everfree Forest area, Gabbagon. He was not alone, though. Gabbagon had welcomed his friends from the rest of Equestria to live there with him.
The whole area of Gabbagon was then having a great celebration of some sort: singing, beating drums and playing flutes in a very swing-like way.
Rainbow Dash flew through the air with Gabbagon's population of Scarlet Macaws and Rosette Spoonbills dance in flight all around her. Her new husband, Soarin (remember folks, this is a dream), flew alongside her with their 3 foals catching up with them. Nilmerg t
The Date 3 part 3After convincing Neon to come to Ponyville with them, Spike and Griffy led the male Pony to the Ponyville park where Vinyl was still waiting, eating some grapes she had brought for a snack a few minutes ago.
As soon as Neon saw Vinyl, his sunglasses popped right off of his face just by the sight of how gorgeous she was.
"Who's the hottie?" Neon whispered Neon in Griffy's Kangaroo-like ear, blushing as he asked the question.
"She's who we want you to meet", replied Griffy.
"Go on over and talk to her", said Spike.
The young Mountain Dragon and young adult Pygmy Griffin pushed Neon over to Vinyl where the two bumped into each other.
Griffy and Spike hid in the nearby bushes to watch the romance take place.
Without their sunglasses on, both Vinyl and Neon could see everything better and seeing each other eye to eye seemed incredible to them both. After introducing themselves, they began to have a conversation on how much they both liked big parties.
"You like pumping up the jam, too?" ask
The Date 3 part 2Later that day, Griffy found Vinyl sitting on a park bench, looking very depressed.
"Jamboha, Ms. Scratch", said Griffy, "Are you so down in the mouth because of loneliness?"
Vinyl nodded sadly. "So many beings come to me only when they want to hear some awesome music and singing from me. Never to ever just be friendly"
"I could be your friend", said Griffy.
"You mean it?" asked Vinyl, looking at Griffy desperately with hopeful eyes.
Griffy nodded, knowing that he was a good friend-maker. The DJ immediately hugged him with tears of happiness. "Thank you, dude"
"I think I know another thing you need, next", said Griffy once Vinyl let him go from her grip, "You've got the friend problem solved. Now you need something to solve another kind of relationship, more stronger than friendship"
"What other kind of companionship is there?" asked Vinyl, wondering what could possibly be more stronger than friendship.
"Love", replied Griffy, "Wait right here, I'll be right back"
Later on, Griffy roun
The Date 3 part 1It was late one night in Ponyville, an evening public picnic was being held in the park for the town's citizens, both Ponies and non-Ponies.
"I think this evening social needs to be more funky", said a male Chicken, his long tail feathers twitching with excitement. When nothing happened in response, he repeated louder: "I THINK THIS EVENING SOCIAL NEEDS TO BE MORE FUNKY!"
"Will you shut up already?" asked Doctor Whoof, "I'm trying to concentrate on the snacks here"
The Fowl was getting really impatient with what he was trying to do. He stormed out of the crowd and looked around for what he was trying to signal. He spotted something hiding behind a nearby tree.
"There she is", said the rooster as he approached the tree. As soon as he looked, he saw what he was looking for, DJ P0N-3. She was sitting at the Tree's base, looking down at the ground without her sunglasses on and had a very depressed expression on her face.
"I keep crowing for you to hit the disks", snapped the Bird, "And yet
Iron Will's Fear: Being Afraid
After he found that he had one unsatisfied customer that day, Iron Will the Minotaur sat on a Tree stump that evening, looking at the bright moon with an ashamed face.
"How could anypony be not satisfied with my lessons?" he asked himself out loud, "It's like as if I'm making THEM the jerks"
He then began to flashback to when he got the idea to teach Ponies how to be assertive. He had been abused when he was a calf, not by bullies but by his own father. His mother had already died in an avalanche accident and his father knew nothing of what to do with him. Pretty soon, his dad was incredibly cranky, blaming things on Will and always reacting in anger when there was nothing to be angry about. Since he always reacted with anger, that's all Will began to know. And that was how Will began to show jerk-like behaviour towards other Minotaurs and other species of Mammal.
As he sat on that stump, thinking about his own actions, one of his Goat helpers came over to him, wondering why he was loo
