Cheerilee leaned closer, the look in her eyes indecipherable to the Crusaders.
Again Cheerilee’s weight shifted, bringing her lips closer and closer to Mac’s. The Crusaders watched with eager glee. Their plan was working! Miss Cheerilee and Mac would be very special someponies within moments, and Hearts and Hooves Day would be a success.
Cheerilee and Mac were almost touching now. The music played, the birds sang, and the sun seemed to shine brighter, as if urging the two on. The world held its breath, and the Crusader’s eyes and smiles widened in delight. Just one more inch! Just one more tiny, insignificant, momentary inch an-

Hah! A simple, but effective, twist on the episode. Instead of Cheerilee’s comment being her pointing out something that’s about as unromantic/unsexy as you can get in that kind of situation…it ends up being a prelude to what I can only presume is a lot of strenuous Earth Pony sexual shenanigans. Worse, the CMCs were stuck in the bush, at first just to watch out of curiosity, but then because they couldn’t escape. Quite hilarious all around and there is little I can comment effectively to other than to say “Bravo!”
