  • Meadow and Spark's first "date", on Hearts and Hooves Day (in context, they have been best friends for many years at this point). Neither of them have any romantic experience: both derive their concept of "dating" from romance novels; and it shows. She's an Changeling Infiltrator who is in serious denial about the depth of her feelings for Spark; he's a Lovable Nerd who imagines he's being smooth (not knowing she's an empath and can read him like a book). Both think that they are engaging in a complex game of social manipulation, both are right, and both are wrong. The fact that the reason why his clumsy approach works is because Meadow's already started to love him, and without realizing it herself, is what makes the whole thing so very sweet. Also rather funny.
