!!Fanfic/EarthAndSky (MLP fanfic)
* CryForTheDevil: The Flim-Flam brothers are jerks, yes, but it's hard not to feel sorry for Flam when they get separated during the sandstorm in the San Palomino and he thinks Flim might be dead.
* HarsherInHindsight: Soarin's eating habits making him fat was a funny and subtle gag in ''Windfall''. Then chapter 4 of this story comes along, [[spoiler: and Soarin is now so out of shape he gets kicked off the Wonderbolts.]]
** Applejack's comment to Soarin' about his mother not teaching him any manners become this when you take his [[ParentalAbandonment family situation]] into consideration. She realizes this in chapter 10 and immediately apologies.
* {{Squick}}: [[spoiler: Chrysalis]] offering to make love to Blueblood while disguised as Rarity, something he actually considers.
* WhatAnIdiot: Flam/Professor Destiny's first attempt at "sabotaging" the flight harness is to [[ComplexityAddiction fire a magic-seeking rocket at it]]. Then he, while still standing next to it mind you, uses magic to lift a spyglass to watch the results. Naturally he goes boom.
