* BiTheWay: [[spoiler:Applejack thinks about meeting a nice stallion and raising a family of her own. She also reciprocates (finally!) Twilight's love.]]
* BrickJoke: Kinda, if one is following the story as it updates: Chapter 8 ends with [[spoiler: Twilight and Applejack joking about how Pinkie was watching them through a telescope. Chapter 9 opens with... Pinkie actually watching them through a telescope]]. If you're doing an ArchiveBinge, it turns into more of a SmashCut, though.

* DoubleSubversion: It's common in ''FIM'' fanworks to portray Applejack's hat as some kind of precious heirloom. In this story, [[spoiler:it's not special at all. AJ actually has dozens of identical hats; individual hats tend to survive only a few months of farm life. However, the specific hat AJ was wearing during Twilight's love confession ''is'' special to AJ ''now'', so she gives it to Twilight for safekeeping.]]

* GossipEvolution: One of these is responsible for Rainbow Dash believing that a love triangle is forming between Twilight, Applejack, and Fluttershy.

* FandomNod: Arguably, Pinkie saying that AJ might give Twilight her hat if she and AJ become a couple [[spoiler: and the fact that AJ does give Twilight her special hat soon after Twilight confesses her love]] may be a nod to how some shipping pics tend to have AJ's lover (whoever it may be depending on the pairing) wearing her hat.

* ProlongedPrologue: For a shipping story, it takes its sweet time in actually getting to the pairing, preferring to spend the first few chapters setting Twilight's state of mind. The initial LoveConfession doesn't even come up until roughly forty thousand words into the story.
