#When the player speaks to Sunny Meadows:

[SMStart]
SM: *sigh*

>What’s up? You look nervous. :SMWhat’sUp

[SMWhat’sUp]
SM: Oh! I’m sorry! I didn’t want to ignore you! I’m so, so sorry!

>Hey, hey, it’s fine! No harm done! Is anything wrong? :SMAnythingWrong
>You better be. I don’t like it to get ignored :SMAngry

[SMAnythingWrong]
SM: Thanks. You’re kind. There is this colt in my class and I think he has a crush on me. And it’s making me so nervous, I don’t want any colts crushing on me!
Hey… Can I ask you for a favor?

>Sure! What do you need? :SMYouNeed
>Sorry, but I don’t have any time for that. :SMReject

[SMAngry]
SM: S-Sorry, I didn’t mean to. It’s just that I’m so nervous… There’s this colt in my class and I think he has a crush on me, but I don’t want any colts crushing on me…
C-Can I maybe ask you for a favor?

>Fine… But only because I have my generous day. What do you need? :SMYouNeed
>No, I’m not helping ponies who ignore me. :SMReject

[SMReject]
SM: Oh. Okay. I’m sorry for bothering you…

#CANCEL QUEST
*goto END

[SMYouNeed]
SM: I’m not sure if he has really a crush on me or if I’m just seeing things and I would feel so much better to know that it’s just my imagination. But I don’t dare to ask him myself…
Could you do this for me?

>Okay, I’m on it! :SMAccept
>Sorry, I don’t think I can do that. :SMReject

[SMAccept]
SM: Thanks. His name is Tornado Twist. He should be in the park at this time. I hope you return with good news…

{[Love Is In The Air]IAAM Crush} :Sunny Meadows, one of the school fillies, asked me to find out if her classmate Tornado Twist has a crush on her. I should find him in the park.
*goto END

#When the player speaks to Tornado Twist:

[TTStart]
TT: I just can’t get this filly out of my head anymore. Her long, green mane... Her yellow eyes... She’s so beautiful! Even her name... Hearing it is like– Oh, sorry! I didn’t see you there!

>It’s fine. I’m here to ask you something. :TTAsk
>What is it with ponies ignoring me today? :TTIgnore

[TTIgnore]
TT: Sorry, that wasn’t on purpose! There’s just this filly that I can’t forget and it’s making me a little crazy.

>More like a lot crazy… Whatever. I’m here to ask you something. :TTAsk
>Well, now you can forget me. I’m sick of ponies pretending I’m not even there. :TTLeave

[TTLeave]
TT: Okay! Just come back anytime if you change your mind!

#CANCEL QUEST
*goto END

[TTAsk]
TT: What is it?

>I’ve heard some ponies saying you have a crush on Sunny Meadows. Do You? :TTDoYou
>Nevermind. I just remembered there’s something else I have to take care of. :TTLeave

[TTDoYou]
TT: So other ponies have already noticed? I do! I have to think about her all day long! Isn’t this wonderful?

>Absolutely! You should totally go and ask her out! I’m sure she’s enthusiastic about it beyond all measure! :TTEnthusiasm
>Yeah, it is. But be careful around her. She’s really nervous over the prospect of a colt crushing on her. :TTNervous
>Not for her. She’s completely afraid of you. Leave your hooves off of her, weirdo, or you will regret having met me! :TTAfraid

[TTNervous]
TT: Oh. I didn’t know that. I guess I can’t just give her this letter and ask her if she wants to be my marefriend then... Thanks for telling me! I will take it slow with her.

[TTAfraid]
TT: Hey, there’s no reason to be so aggressive! It’s not like I want to harass her, or something. I just wanted to ask her to become my marefriend… But fine, I won’t talk to her. Now leave me alone!

[TTEnthusiasm]
TT: You really think so? Then I will try! I have already written a love letter for her. But I’m too shy to give it to her in person. Would you deliver it for me?

>I’m always happy to help a love-struck colt in need! :TTAccept
>I think it’s better for your confidence if you do it yourself. :TTReject

[TTReject]
TT: Oh, bummer! How should I gather the courage? Thanks for nothing, I guess…

#CANCEL QUEST
*goto END

[TTAccept]
TT: Excellent, buddy! Here it is. I can’t wait to get her answer!

{[Love Is In The Air]IAAM Letter} :I talked with Tornado Twist and found out about his crush on Sunny Meadows. Now it’s time to return to Sugarcane Corner to tell her the news.
*goto END

#When the player returns to SM:

[SMReturn]
*hasitem? 50 :SMLetter

[SMLetter]
SM: Oh, finally you’re back! I couldn’t have waited much longer. Have you talked to him? What did he say? Please tell me that he hasn’t a crush on me!

>He totally has! He even gave me a love letter to deliver it to you! Here! :SMGiveLetter
>Well, it looks like he has, sorry. But don’t worry, he promised not to hassle you when he heard how nervous you are about that! :SMHassle
>He has confessed to have a crush on you, but there’s no reason to be worried. I threatened him and now he won’t even do as much as just talking to you! :SMThreat

[SMNoLetter]
SM: Oh, finally you’re back! I couldn’t have waited much longer. Have you talked to him? What did he say? Please tell me that he hasn’t a crush on me!

>Well, it looks like he has, sorry. But don’t worry, he promised not to hassle you when he heard how nervous you are about that! :SMHassle
>He has confessed to have a crush on you, but there’s no reason to be worried. I threatened him and now he won’t even do as much as just talking to you! :SMThreat

[SMGiveLetter]
SM: What?! Oh no! I-I can’t blame you for it that he has a crush on me, but why did you bring me a love letter from him? T-That was really mean of you, you know how nervous I am! Now go away, I need to think about what I should do now!

#END QUEST
*goto END

[SMHassle]
SM: Oh my goodness, I knew he has! At least he’s not asking me out... Thanks for talking to him. Here, I give you half of my pocket money for this month for trying to help me. But now I really need to think about what I should do now, bye!

#END QUEST
*goto END

[SMThreat]
SM: You did what? But that’s not what I said! I just asked you to find out if he has a crush on me, not to scare him, he’s no bad colt! Here, I give you a little bit of my pocket money for trying to help, but please be nice to other ponies in the future!

#END QUEST
*goto END

Reward(s): 20 bits if player chose dialogue option SMHassle at the end, 10 if player chose SMThreat, none if player chose SMGiveLetter

This is the quest that got me a position as quest writer for "Legends of Equestria"! I could get permission to publish it in order to show what got me into the team and, for those interested, how a quest for "Legends of Equestria" is written, because the quest won't be in the game.
