My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Suited For Success
A/N: (Construction is ongoing in the writers studio and Dede42 is standing outside with Merlin and they are in deep discussion.)
Dede42: So, do you think it's possible to magic-proof the place?
Merlin: Oh yes, indeed.
Sunrise Blossom: (turns to the camera) Hey, guys, as you can see, Dede42 has enlist the help of Merlin from Sword in the Stone to help her magic proof the writers studio so that no pony, or person, can just random teleport in. She's also going to have special doors installed that will allow me and every one else to go wherever we need to go without having to travel so far. Which will make it easier to visit with Roleplayer48.
Rainbow Dash: (who is still struggling with the push mower nearby) Erg! I think this thing is rusted or something! Why can't I used the gasoline power mower?
Applejack: Because only Dede42's brother-in-law is allowed to use it on the weekends when he comes over to check on the beehives.
Rainbow Dash: No fair!
Applejack: Just get back to work.
Sunrise Blossom: (rolls her eyes) As you can see, it's the usual around here.
Read, review, and enjoy!

CHAPTER THREE: FASHION DISASTER!
The next morning, Sunrise Blossom arrived early at the boutique to give Rarity some much-needed moral support to cope with the reactions of their friends when they saw the new dresses, and for the fashion show to come.
"Okay," said Rarity once their friends were gathered. "I did exactly what each of you asked for. Now don't hold back. Let me know what you really think." And she revealed the five dresses that were so covered with so much stuff that they didn't even look like dresses at, and Opalescence was growling and hissing at them.
Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie were all excited and gushing over them. "Oh my! It's… perfect! It's cool! Why, they're the best duds I ever did see. It's exactly what I asked for!"
"Thank you, Rarity," said Twilight Sparkle graciously.
"Are you as happy with them as we are? Huh? Huh? Huh?" Pinkie Pie asked eagerly.
"Well, I'm… happy that all of you are happy," Rarity answered without admitting that she wasn't happy in the slightest. "I'm just relieved to finally be done."
Just then, Spike came running in, out of breath and very excited. "You are never gonna believe this! You've heard of Hoity Toity?" he asked.
"The bigwig fashion hotshot in Canterlot?" Twilight Sparkle asked.
Spike nodded. "Uh-huh. He heard about your fashion show," he informed Rarity. "Well, maybe I happened to mention it to him… He's coming here all the way from Canterlot to see your work, Rarity!"
"Whoa, Nelly!" Applejack exclaimed. "You could sell a ton o' dresses to this guy. Your business will be boomin'!" And Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy all agreed, excited for their upcoming fashion show.
Rarity, however, was alarmed. "Hoity Toity?" she repeated. "He's coming here? To see THESE dresses?"
"Yep!" Spike confirmed. "Get ready for all of your dreams to come true."
'More like having her nightmares come true,' Sunrise Blossom thought, noting how her friend's eye was starting to twitch. 'This isn't going to end well, I just know it.'
Two nights later, all of Ponyville was out to see the fashion show and Rarity was peering out of the curtain to see whether all of the ponies were seated, and she then she saw Hoity Toity, who was a male pony with bluish gray skin, bluish gray mane and tail with light gray stripes, light blue eyes hidden behind purple sunglasses, and his cutie mark was that of a golden fan. "Oh," she gasped as he seated himself on a red velvet pillow at the end of the runway. "There he is!" She took several deep breaths. "Okay. Relax, Rarity. Your friends like their outfits and so will he." She suddenly squealed when the lights went down. "What's wrong with the lights?! Oh, yes. That means the show's starting. Good."
Sunrise Blossom, who'd declined to take part in the fashion show, pulled her friend back behind the curtain. "Ok, breathe, Rarity, it'll be over soon," she said as reassuringly as possible.
DJ Pon-3, a white unicorn with dark blue hair stripped with light blue, purple-red eyes hidden behind dark purple glasses, a music symbol for a cutie mark, and headphones, and who was the resident DJ for Ponyville, started the music.
"Since the beginning of time, the elite of Equestria have longed for pony fashions that truly expressed the essence of their very souls," said Spike into a microphone as the light show began. "Patiently waiting decades – no, centuries – for the perfect pony gown. Today, at long last, Equestria, your wait is over! Let's hear it for the breathtaking designs of Ponyville's own Rarity!"
The curtains opened and out came Twilight Sparkle, whose dress was shades of dark purple and covered with tons of stars, Applejack, whose dress was covered with all kinds of farming gear and was wearing galoshes, Fluttershy, whose dress had tons of feathers and she had a nest on her head, Rainbow Dash, whose outfit made on think of a fancy soldier, and Pinkie Pie, who looked like a walking candy shop.
As the five ponies posed at the end of the runway, turntable the gathered ponies were murmuring, and they were staring with horror instead of delight.
"Why's everypony lookin' at us like that?" Applejack whispered uncomfortably.
Twilight Sparkle glanced up at her star-covered headband and the realization clicked. "Oh dear."
"You think we overdid it?" Rainbow Dash whispered, worried.
"Nah," said Applejack and then looked down at her bright yellow galoshes. "Okay, maybe a little."
"Oh, those amateurish designs look like a piled-on mishmash of everything but a kitchen sink!" Hoity Toity complained, unaware that Rarity was now hiding said item backstage. "It's a travesty is what it is. Those outfits are the ugliest things I've ever seen, oh for shame. Who is responsible for subjecting our eyes to these horrors? Not to mention wasting my valuable time."
Hearing all of this, Rarity tried to hide behind Sunrise Blossom and Opalescence. "Oh! Hide me."
"Come on out and take a bow, Rarity," said Spike encouraging, hustling her out onto the runway. "You worked really hard for this. Yes! All right, woo-hoo! Go, Rarity!"
Hanging her head in shame, Rarity walked down the runway while the ponies all glared at her, and her friends were overwhelmed with guilt. This wasn't a fashion show, it was a fashion disaster!
After the fashion show ended, the five ponies got out of the so-called dresses and went in search of Rarity, but there was no sign of the unicorn, instead they found Sunrise Blossom waiting for them backstage, and she wasn't happy with any of them at that particular moment.
"Rarity went home," she informed them sternly, and the five ponies all winced. "And after that disaster of a show, I can't blame her. By Celestia's crown what were you five thinking?" she demanded. "Throwing all those insane ideas at her for what you thought were far better dresses then the ones she first made! From the start I said those dresses were perfect and you five took advantage of her generosity."
"You're right, Sunrise," Twilight Sparkle agreed sadly. "We did, and we may have lost Rarity as a friend, too."
"Yeah, we didn't think of how she would feel about what we wanted when she already knew," Applejack agreed.
"Same here," said Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie together.
"Well, now that you know what you did was wrong, you five better think of a way of making it up to Rarity before she decides to leave town or worst," Sunrise Blossom suggested, and they all agreed.
But how to make it up to Rarity?
A/N: Sunrise here, I was more disappointed then angry with them, but I did have to lecture them after that fashion show disaster. Seriously, those weren't dresses, they were disasters! R&R everyone!
