Opposites Attract... - Rainbowshy_Flutterdash

Fluttershy discovers she has feelings for Rainbow Dash...

  • ...

6. Marrying

Two Years Later.

Fluttershy lay awake in the bed she and Rainbow shared. They’d been together for so long now that sleeping there had become normal and she had converted her home into an animal hospital. For the past few days she had been getting odd signals from Rainbow. Her love had been acting awkward and cheesy to the point where it actually frightened Fluttershy. At first she put it off as just her way of flirting, but it had progressed so far that she couldn’t hold a normal conversation.

“F-fluttershy? You awake?” Rainbow asked from behind her, making the yellow pony jump.

“Yes…” She answered.

Rainbow got up out of bed and sat down in front of her love. “Fluttershy, we’ve been through tons together, and I love you more than anything in the whole wide world. I can still remember the day we had our first kiss, and the things I said to you years ago still hurt to think about. So, I was thinkin’… Maybe we could, uh…. Take it to the next level…” at this point she pulled a black, felt box from under the bed. Tears were in her eyes as she opened the box up, revealing a beautiful light blue ring, “F-Fluttershy… Will you m-marry me?” she asked between sobs from the combination of the happiness she felt in that moment and the nervousness that crept up from the pit of her stomach. Fluttershy just sat on the bed for minutes on end, looking dumbfounded at the ring. “I’m sorry, it was stupid to even thin-“ Rainbow began.

“Yes!” Fluttershy squealed, bringing a look of pure, undiluted joy to both her and Rainbow’s faces, “Yes yes yes!” she carried on, kissing Dash like they were long lost lovers. Dash could only reply with tears of joy and silent thanks in the form of gladly returning every kiss that came her way.

Later that day they broke the news to everypony they could get within earshot of. Soon the whole town of Ponyville was murmuring with excitement, for there was a wedding to be had! The second Pinkie got wind of the news she invited Rainbow, Rarity, AJ, Twilight and Fluttershy to her house to discuss the wedding plans.

“Ok, so it’s going to be outside, simple and anypony can come?” Pinkie asked, recapping hours of work that each of the had partaken in.

“I still think we should have a proper wedding in a cathedral…” Rarity mumbled to herself.

“Oh, put a sock in it!” Rainbow kidded, tossing a wink to Rarity, “Who’s gonna have us say our vows?”

“I’m pretty sure that Derpy is qualified to do it, don’t ask how.” Twilight said, hiding a smirk.

“We should let her do it then! I know it would mean the world to her…” Fluttershy chimed in.

“Yeah, that’d be cool.” Rainbow said, a hint of uncertainty in her voice, “Now about the cake… Pinkie, could you do that for us? Make it a surprise, but not too… crazy, kay?”

“Okey Dokey Loki!” Pinkie said, beaming, “Rarity and Twilight should do decorations, and Applejack can cater it. Sound good?”

“Sounds great!” Rainbow agreed, “Okay, we’ve got 48 hours ponies. Let’s GET IT DONE! ‘Shy and I will go pick out the dresses, Rarity and Twilight should find a good area and get to work on setting it up, Pinkie needs to get on the cake and AJ, make some goooood food! GO GO GO!” at that all the ponies rushed off to do their assigned duties.

“What about this one?” Rainbow asked Fluttershy, motioning to a simple white dress.

“Oh, I don’t know… It’s sortof… plain.” she responded, “OOH! This one is PERFECT!”

“It’s… Beautiful!” Rainbow said, seeing the translucent green and yellow dress that Fluttershy picked out for herself. It had flowers at the hem and the chest was a darker, more opaque green trimmed by a bright yellow. “Now to find one for me…”

“Ugh, Twilight, you have simply NO sense of sight, do you?” Rarity said, fixing the stage’s positioning that was off by no more than a few inches. “Everything needs to be perfect for those two!”

“I know, jeez.” Twilight sighed, setting up the benches that she and Rarity had conjured moments before. “What color carpet should we put down the aisle?”

“Yellow would look absolutely divine on the grass… Who’s going to walk down the aisle and who’s going to be standing at the pew?”

“Uh… I think Fluttershy’s walking down the aisle. Rainbow IS the one that proposed.”

“Then we’re going with yellow. Definitely yellow.” Rarity decided, creating a yellow rug out of nothing, “Oh, with rainbow trim!” suddenly a rainbow appeared on each side, “Perfect.”

Pinkie was busy at work making each tier of the cake. The first tier had a picture done in fondant of Rainbow and Fluttershy hugging each other. Above it was a tier with two of their greatest accomplishments, Fluttershy staring a dragon dead in the eyes and Rainbow flying through the air, a sonic rainboom behind her. Then came a tier that was simply done. The background had alternating pink, yellow, blue and rainbow squares, the names of the soon-to-be-weds on it with a heart and the word love in between them.

She topped the cake off with two hand crafted sugar figures of Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, intertwined in an upwards twisting hug. An urge to write the words “HAPPY WEDDING!” on the top overcame her, but she ignored it, thinking that it would take away from the overall classiness of the cake.

A squeal of joy and many fast paced claps were heard as she finished off the cake and set to work making cookies and other sweets.

The Apple family was quick at work making all sorts of candies, sweet snacks and some apple-based meat substitutes. It took only a few hours to make enough food to feed everypony that was invited, but they continued making food throughout the rest of the day so that they could rest soundly knowing they’d have more than enough food for the party.

“This one DEFINITELY!” Rainbow said, seeing a white dress with black trim. The chest and back of it were just a plain white silky fabric. Some sort of laced cotton that had patterns in it resembling raindrops. “It’s awesome…”

“I like it,” Fluttershy assured her, “It’s beautiful…”

“Yeah…” Rainbow said, looking at it.

"That should just about do it..." Rarity said, admiring her handiwork. About six hours into the decorating she tied Twilight up with ribbon to keep her out of the way. The stage, composed of three wide, short cylinders stacked on top of each other, was decorated with black white and purple bows. Only then did she realize that she had worked all through the night and the wedding was only hours away!

She released Twilight and rushed off to her house, gathering five dresses and dashing towards Sugar Cube Corner. Each dress she had picked was simplistic and beautiful, sporting a color that complimented the wearer she had modeled it after. Derpy’s was a radiant white, AJ’s a slightly shimmering gold, Pinkie’s… well, pink, Twilight’s dark blue and her own a light lavender.

Each and every pony got dressed and made their way to the field designated for the wedding. When they arrived Pinkie’s cake and the Apple family’s food was already layed out on a large buffet and Rainbow was pacing at the pew. Quite a few people had already arrived and the second that they showed up the wedding got underway.

A traditional wedding song was being played by Pinkie. She played it rather fast though and got everyone's hooves a-tappin. Sweetie Belle and Applebloom strolled down the aisle first, tossing flower petals all over the designated walking space. They were followed in close pursuit by Fluttershy being walked down the aisle by her now bawling father. Finally came Scootaloo who proudly trotted down the aisle, rings set on a pillow on her back. Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy stood face to face, Derpy before each of them.

'Let your love be stronger than your anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than to break.
Look for the best in your beloved rather than the worst.
Confide in your partner and ask for help when you need it.
Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship.
Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends.
Say “I love you” every day.” Derpy said with an odd confidence. She hadn’t messed up so far…

“Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy, I remind you that marriage is a precious gift; a lifelong dedication to love and a daily challenge to love one another more fully and more freely.

With this understanding, do you, Rainbow Dash, take Fluttershy to be your beloved wife? Do you promise to be a tender, faithful wife? Do you promise to love and cherish her, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, and keep yourself only unto her?” the gray pegasus asked, oddly enough she was still going strong with no accidents.

'I do...' she said, staring directly into her soon to be wife’s eyes.

'And Fluttershy, with this understanding, do you take Rainbow Dash to be your beloved wife? Do you promise to be a tender, faithful wife? Do you promise to love and cherish her, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, for better for worse, and keep yourself only unto her?'

"O-of course I do." Fluttershy spoke, a few tears running down her smiling face that only Rainbow Dash could see.

'Then by the power invested in me, I now pronounce you woman and wife! EEEE!!!! I never thought I'd get to say that!' Derpy giggled.

“CAAAAAAAAAAKE TIIIIIIIIIME!” Pinkie shouted, rushing towards the cake.

Rainbow and Fluttershy kissed a magical kiss. They stayed locked in each other’s embrace for minutes after the partying had started. “I love you.” Fluttershy said, tears of joy now streaming down her face.

“I love you too.” Rainbow said, her tears matching the amount of her wife’s, “I swear, I won’t let anything happen to you. Ever.”


"PINKIE PIE!' the rest of the crowd shouted back at the pony.

Rainbow and Fluttershy made their way, hand in hand, to the cake. Fluttershy began carefully cutting the top tier and, to everypony’s surprise, flung the first piece of cake she finished cutting into her wife’s face. She giggled and helped Dash get it off, then finished cutting the cake and grabbed a couple pieces for her and Rainbow. They sat together at a table with their closest friends, Fluttershy leaning on Rainbow, and fell in love all over again.

I feel this whole story is a bit too short, and somewhat rushed. Its nice reading short stories every once in a while, but you should really try to stretch it out more in the future. Try to write at least 1,000 words a chapter.

And try not to have your conflicts resolved so quickly, There should be at least a one chapter difference between a problem and its solution.

Still, this story is fun to read and a nice simple read, and very enjoyable.

this was nice but im not quie sure why a society of herbivores would need meat substitutes

thats..... beautiful maaan...... just FUCKING BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! :raritywink::scootangel::raritycry::derpytongue2::fluttercry::rainbowkiss::twilightsmile:

:trollestia: celestia: i would like to congratulate the two of you in person for finding a lesson in true friendship that only those who are wedded can experience may you love each other until death AND MAY THE KINGDOM OF EQUESTRIA WATCH OVER YOU!!!

That was mother fucking adorable! :yay::heart::rainbowkiss:


I wandered in from the Flutterdash group. Just checking out the "competition," if you want to see it that way.

The good: you're not as afraid of drama as many first-time authors.

The bad: the story moves with the fast-forward enthusiasm of a kindergardener's play-time. That's not incurable, but you'll need to learn to let your characters stew in their problems a bit more - and to take time to enjoy the scenery.

I can hook you up with some decent editors if you're willing to take more specific criticism.

PS: You're not even close to suggestive. This is pretty much an "E" in my opinion.

this story would make a great episode!

great story overall, but here's a few pointers:
A lot of people (Myself included) like longer stories
let problems sit for a while before they are resolved (If they are resolved)
this story is cute, but it could use a little more substance. description, back-story and the like.
more info on the individual characters.

Other than that, this story was great and absolutely adorable:heart:

I liked your story, but it went by to fast. Their love didn't seem like it meant much or that it was really true. Though it was good for your first story, can't wait to read more of your stories later on in the future
