Scootaloo stood in the dressing room of Carousel Boutique. She never thought she'd find herself wearing a dress, but this was a special occasion. It had been 15 years since she was first taken in by the Dash family. It felt odd that she was about to change her last name for the third time in her life, but it felt right. Like the day she first picked up a guitar. Her career in music had propelled her into a household name in Equestria. At least among the homes of ponies who enjoyed hard rock. Sweetie Belle still held the spotlight over Scoot, but that was to be expected. The lead singer always gets the attention over the other band members. Iron Pony. Initially just a joke among the band members (They had all watched the Iron Pony Competition between Rainbow Dash and Applejack) it had become their official name after receiving their record label. Applebloom was their head stage engineer. She set up all their sets and props since their first show back in Ponyville. Both her and Sweetie Belle earned their cutie marks that day, ending the "secret society" known to all as the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
"Scootaloo, this is not the time to get lost in thought."
"Sorry Rarity. It's just been a wild ride, you know?"
"Yes, I do. Are you nervous?"
"No, actually. I'm excited. This is the start of a new life for me. I can't wait to walk down that aisle."
"I'm almost sad that I have to hand you over today. At least you found yourself a good stallion." Rainbow chimed in. Scootaloo had asked Rainbow to hand her off to her fiance because Rainbow had always played more of the 'father figure' role in Scootaloo's life after she moved in with the Dash family.
"Look at you. All grown up on your wedding day. I can't wait to see the look on his face when he sees you up there." Spitfire was near to tears from the joy filling her heart. She had never expected to watch her daughter get married before taking Scootaloo in. She and Rainbow had never made any plans to adopt before they found her. It was then that Sweetie Belle walked in.
"Wow Scoot, you look amazing!"
"Thanks Sweetie Belle."
"Nah. I'm going to be married after this. No matter what goes wrong out there today, I'll still be married to him tonight."
"The night after the wedding is the fun part. Frankly I wouldn't have minded skipping the ceremony and going straight for that." Rainbow chimed in.
"Yeah, frankly the whole wedding thing is sweet, but in the end I had a lot more fun tasting the-"
"Mom, sorry to cut you off, but I don't really want to hear about you guys' sexual endeavors." Scootaloo loved her parents deeply, but she wouldn't have minded if they were a little more reserved about their bedroom life.
"Anyway, I came in hear to fulfill my duty as Mare of Honor and tell you that you need to get your flank out there because everypony is waiting on you to start." Sweetie Belle had always been very direct.
"Well Scoot, I'm about to complete my final duty as your mom." Rainbow offered a foreleg. "Shall we?" Scootaloo wrapped her foreleg around her mother's. They stepped outside into the Ponyville town square. Despite her fame, Scootaloo and the band had always been able to find peace and privacy in the small town. It's why they continued to live there after they began raking in bits for their music. Scootaloo walked down the aisle and stood in front of her fiance. This was where her life had taken her. This is where it would begin anew. Fluttershy had her birds singing beautifully. She had become better at arranging music with them since she married Soarin'. But Scootaloo didn't hear it. As far as she was concerned the world was empty save for her and her fiance. This was where her life would truly begin. Everything she had endured to this point had made her the mare she was. Made her the mare that the stallion in front of her had fallen in love with. In this moment, she knew that her life was complete.
I never expected to have this much fun writing a fanfic. I was expecting that I would start it, get poor reviews, and scrap the idea. If it weren't for all of you who read this and kept wanting more I wouldn't have saw the project through. I want to thank all of you for coming with me on this ride. And I want to ask you to stay tuned to find out what happens in between the last two chapters. I will be releasing two sequels to Family Mares that will fill the void. I would also like to ask for some assistance. I am no artist. If somepony would like to draw me some cover art for my next two stories, please send me a private message to my account here on FIMfiction.net
