Gamer. Pony writer. Layabout. ...That's about it.

On an average day in Ponyville, Fluttershy receives a visit from Prince Blueblood, who seeks a relationship with the kind mare. Fluttershy agrees, and likewise attempts to aid the young stallion with his problems involving romance. But, as time moves on, she realizes that change may not have been his intention after all. And his true nature is revealed. Will Flutterhy's friends be able to change things in time, or will Fluttershy forever be entrapped by the way he lies?

Edit: I finally finished putting together the cover art, so I'm gonna go ahead and credit all of the sources.

I really like the descriptive way you write. It was great! Can't wait to read more! I loooove Fluttershy :twilightsmile: :heart:

Good idea for a story, but i refuse to read it.:unsuresweetie:

I REALLY dont like the idea of fluttershy being tricked, or anything of the sort.:fluttershysad:

2966298 Thank you!:pinkiehappy: Fluttershy is my favorite pony:yay:

2967679 It tore me up to compose this story in my head. I bucking love Fluttershy, but it must be done:ajbemused::fluttershyouch:

OK, which groups do you guys think this would work in? I was thinking "Oh God! The FEELS!" and "Shipping" (there will be true shipping, but not until the end)

:trixieshiftleft:: WHAT ABOUT MY PRINCE?!
:duck:: He's a :yay::yay::yay::yay: who should go :yay::yay::yay::yay: himself.
:twilightoops:: I didn't know you even knew those words.
:raritywink:: You pick up a lot of swears from customers.
:trixieshiftright:: Teach me more...

:moustache:: Quite so.
:rainbowderp:: You know those words Spike?!
:ajbemused:: He was there the day I was attacked by a dragon.
:rainbowhuh:: You were attacked by a dragon?!?!
:moustache:: Sometimes I can't control myself.
:twilightoops:: YOU TOO!?!?!?!
:unsuresweetie:: What do these words mean?
:applecry:: Ya don't want ta know, Sweetie Belle.
:scootangel:: I finally have some counter-insults against Diamond Tiara!
:derpytongue2:: MUFFINS!!
:facehoof:: I'm going to go read my book on psychology again.
:trollestia:: Bananas, anyone?

2970827
:eeyup:: ... :yay::yay::yay:
:twilightangry2:: Enough! I am trying to :pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy: sleep! You have been going on all day with this :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:! Shut the :rainbowwild::rainbowwild::rainbowwild:: up before I shove the elements up each of your :twilightoops::twilightoops::twilightoops:!
:rainbowderp::... Geez, talk about a drama queen
:duck:: Such vocabulary is not very lady-like, darling.
:facehoof:

Ummm, I see that I have three dislikes... but no comments explaining why it was disliked. If you wish to dislike this, could you explain why? I can't fix something if I don't know it's broken. Thanks, everyone!:pinkiehappy:

2970917 Probably the Blueblood haters. They are everywhere. :pinkiecrazy:

2970898
:coolphoto:: WHY DID YOU LEAVE, MODEL? I WAS GOING TO BE :yay::flutterrage::yay::flutterrage::yay::flutterrage: FAMOUS!!!
:facehoof:: GO HOME PHOTO FINISH, YOU'RE DRUNK!
:ajbemused:: That was the 100% cider, not the 10%, wasn't it?
:applecry:: How am I supposed to know how many 0's are in a hundred?

2970984 I happen to like the stuck-up prince. :twilightsmile:

2970990 :pinkiehappy: Don't worry. My story will bring you back to the light. You'll see.
You'll all see!!!:flutterrage:

2971047 I'll have you know I am of average height sir.:eeyup:

2971182 :eeyup:
But Buzz said that to Woody, who was taller...:trixieshiftleft:

2971197
:ajbemused:... apples, that is all

2971483 Brony motto:Love and Tolerate.
Tolerate being the important word. It's obviously easy to tolerate someone who you love. The meaning of the motto is to at least show some compassion to those you dislike or even flat out hate. I'm a proud Diamond Cutter, so I also use this idea on Diamond Tiara.
:moustache: Have a nice, loving, tolerating day.

Actually now that i think about it my story is going to have a... sort of Rage:flutterrage: bomb of an ending that includes fluttershy:fluttershysad: that also includes :fluttershbad:death... PM me any ways i can contact you outside of FimFiction, Like Skype, Steam, ETC. I would like to chat and share ideas.:twilightsheepish:

For Others reading this comment and checking out my story I mentioned, I'm Currently Stockpiling Chapters for later release so don't go "WHERES THE CHAPTERS?":twilightangry2:
(However, feel free to follow if you wish to read when i finally release chapters.)

2971647 I don't keep accounts with social media services like Skype. (My friends have always been in close proximity) And I try not to open Steam, as it usually results in a crash:facehoof: This and deviantArt are the only things I use my PC for, as it is a useless piece of junk (it has trouble loading this website a lot, too; and don't get me started on dA). So here or dA. Sorry to be so difficult (can't afford a good computer until after Christmas). And sorry to reply so late. I haven't been to this page in a while, as I was working on two other stories and didn't really pay attention to it. :twilightblush:

3182664

Oh don't worry about the delay I understand entirely as I am currently Mass Stockpiling chapters for my Story. :twilightsmile: Well when you get yourself your better computer I'm open to talk to and share ideas. I got a mind full of Ponies. :pinkiehappy: Who knows, we could make each others stories 20% Cooler! :rainbowlaugh: Heh, keep up dem stories!

3187115 Sounds awesome. This could be an interesting acquaintanceship (when I have the tools to make it possible :facehoof:) Until then, keep on pony-ing on! :pinkiehappy:

3273414 :raritydespair: I iz FAILURE!
I've barely touched this story since the first chapter.
No more procrastinating. :ajbemused:<< (This is my serious face)
More coming soon. :twilightsmile:

3435024 I've hit a LOT of snags with this chapter. I'm trying to cover much more ground than with the first, so it will be much longer. Hoping to get it finished within the next few days. :twilightblush:

3437414
mmhmhmhm....im watching you....

Okaaaay. Internet went down for a significant while there (at least a week). Slight delay on the next chapter. :twilightblush:

thank. Bucking. CELESTIA that's over!
Everything seemed wrong and had I to go through SOOO MANY revisions. Eventually, I just said "Buck it" and just threw the remainder of the chapter together.
So... enjoy, I guess. :ajbemused:

You say to enjoy; I enjoyed.

Perhaps part of it is because I may be the first author to ever dip into a Fluttershy-Blueblood pairing, as part of the Eros Dreaming crack-ship project (which was entirely my attempt to make up never before seen ships, back then), but also because this is just very saccharine! Fluttershy is, for me personally, the most difficult of the mane six to write for, partly because I have a hard time putting myself in the shoes or skin of the character. It is always interesting then to read the occasional Flutterfic and how she can contrast and compliment other characters. Given the title and all of this fic, I expect there's something less than altruistic going on under the surface, but I would also find it a delightful subversion if - say - what began as some sort of scheme to seduce Fluttershy ended up in the reverse, with her kindness and trust winning the day without her even really knowing there was trouble underfoot. Cue the plan going off anyway, somehow, romantic misunderstanding, and the standard post-misunderstanding make-up and catharsis. Or is that just too predictable and formulaic?

Anyway, it is nice to see Flutters being an interesting and sympathetic character, who can interact with others as well, without her being pitiable :fluttercry: or Flutterraged :flutterrage:

3766550 I personally find Fluttershy the easiest to write because she is the pony I am (or was) most similar to.
I thank you for your kind and intelligent words. :twilightsmile: Glad to know I'm doing something right. Though I believe you may be over-thinking the plot a tad. I find it easier to spread the hurt in my stories. :rainbowlaugh: Though your idea is good, too.
The story actually will follow Blueblood dating Fluttershy, the most kind-hearted mare in Equestria, in an attempt to change himself (his past will be outlined later), but slowly easing back into his old abusive, controlling ways. This is more about her friends trying to get her out of it. There's no redemption or changes-of-heart for the prince (not because I don't like him; just because I said so :rainbowwild:)
... Okay, I think I'm done talking now.:twilightblush:

3768262

Oh? That's actually quite interesting in that... I really can't really ever reading a story where, at the end, the romantic plot or subplot ends in a "I guess we weren't compatible after all" breakup. Which is strange, since most actual relationships do in fact end in simple realization of incompatibility and, usually, two mature adults going back to the dating pool, hopefully richer for the experience. If you do end up going this route, it could well be one of the more realistic ways of handling a story with this sort of premise. Though... I also suppose the reason it is uncommon is that it may lack the emotional impact (that catharsis I mentioned before) we've come to expect from the end of a story... which could, I guess, be counteracted by hinting that both partners will find who is right for them the next time around.

3768427 I noticed a lack of such plotlines as well. I guess most writers on the site don't like being too realistic with their stories. I may write one like that later on, but this story already has a floor-plan laid out. Why don't you write one like that? :twilightsmile: I would definitely read it.

I LOVE IT!!!

If you cancel this story, I will personally ensure Pinkamena bakes you into a cupcake.

4507184 Don't do that. I'd taste horrible.
Sorry. There are two reasons I haven't updated this story.
1: I've mainly been focusing on another story I'm currently writing (A Bruised Apple) as it is my best story.

2: I've been attempting to reach into other aspects of this fandom. I've been learning Flash, Fireworks, Inkscape, etc.

Honestly, I didn't think this one was as great as I originally intended. But it you want it, you got it! :raritywink:

woah...hope blueblood lives to the end of this story...A little to much.
So whats with bluebloods rage?

3768427
Well this turned violent quickly.

4689006 He's just a pompous, entitled ass (in this story). He uses force to make others bend to his will because he knows he can get away with it.

4689037
.....doesent seem like the first one..

4689051 :rainbowhuh: What? He doesn't seem pompous? That's because he hasn't been shown much since the date. And on the date, he was acting. :pinkiesmile:

4689088 look out your front door you will see people that make blueblood look like gahndi or martin luther king jr or ceser chavez. Good...
