Sir Barton

Marriage is not something Pegasi take lightly. Many Pegasi go their whole lives, living, loving, and having foals, maybe even with just one partner, but choose not to wed. To the Pegasi, to wed another was to join oneself so inseparably that not even death could sever the bonds so forged of the Pegasus soul. You are cordially invited to attend the wedding of Spitfire and Soarin, so come take a look at the cultural event that is the Pegasi wedding.

Huh, interesting.

Glad to see someone else has a different headcanon towards pegasus society and the event of marriage between two winged ponies.

3205530 This was actually done as a response to, and inspired by, a comment on one of my other stories, so I wrote this as a result.:twilightsmile:

Awwwwwww!!! :rainbowkiss::scootangel:

It's nice to read a story with marriage as its main theme.

Wow... So beautiful, I'm absolutely blown away by the power in this. Every detail of this tale is so gorgeous, great great work! With Apple Studded Diamond, it felt slightly sick, the traditions of the marriage, just as I feel about a lot of breeding and old wedding practices when forced to think too deeply about them, while nonetheless being extremely well written; but this was absolutely pure and beautiful. Straight to top featured favourite, from me! Thanks for sharing this HC!

This goes along well with my head canon that of the three tribes, pegasi are the shortest lived, so in a hurry.

This is officially the greatest thing ever.

Not only does it come just a little while after a blog post of mine detailing how there are too few Soarin'/Spitfire fics, it also skillfully and cleverly alludes to a plethora of Pegasus traditions and culture. Of particular note was the military theme of wedding, as Luna was attired in a warrior regalia, which if I am correct, harkens to the warrior themes of the ancient Pegasi outlined in the show. Bravo as well on creating all the minor aspects of the actual marriage ritual, especially the final act of spitting in the face of death. I couldn't help but cheer aloud at reading that.

Thanks for writing this short, but thoroughly enjoyable story. This alone inspires me to continue to trudge on with my own Pegasi centered story. I'm glad there are others that enjoy the Pegasi as much as I do. Perhaps this will make it's way to EQD. It certainly deserves it.

I am incredibly impressed with and admiring of this ceremony you've created. Each of the steps felt an excellent fit to the corresponding tradition, and your explanations of each meshed perfectly with the narrative.
I am equally impressed with how easy it was to believe in a strong emotional connection between Spitfire and Soarin' in so short a story.
I am also impressed with you seeming to have done your research with regards to Greco-Roman features and equine attire.

Have I mentioned I am impressed?

I don't know who you are, author, and I haven't read any of your other stories. I will soon rectify that.
Thank you for sharing this story with us.

Soarin x Spitfire pairing caught my attention so I decided to check this out. You just made my day. The details were great as were the emotions, and of course, SoarFire is always welcomed.

Have a like. :pinkiehappy:

I'm very much impressed with this concept. Well done.

My first experience with your work Sir Barton was hoping to read a great fiction with one of the oddest pairings I've seen of Diamond Tiara and Big Mac. And with only a few paragraphs I knew I was going to enjoy how it all wrapped up. Now, I may be waiting to see how that wonderful story further develops but the fact that you built up to this story with a mere mention of the tradition in the previous story was amazing.

I completely share every other user's comment about the amount of detail put into the story, same with emotional impact from such a short story. The only bad thing I can say about this story is that it deserves way more attention than it's received so far. Keep it up Sir Barton, your work is much appreciated :)

I couldn't be happier with this and it's been less than a week. :yay: Thank you all and to all those that fav'ed this as well. :pinkiehappy:

That was beautiful.

That was nice.
Upvote for you.:raritywink:

Great short story. SoarinFire is cool and its nice to see a wedding fic for them.

Do you mind if I use a few ideas for the ceremony in a Flutterdash wedding fic I am working on?

3398228 If you've found inspiration here, by all means use it. :twilightsmile:
And send me a link.

Now that's a way to do a wedding with class!!! Well done!!!

And despite the compactness of this, I could see everything going on with it. Seriously, man (or woman), 5 stars!!! And I can tell that even though she's moving on from being Captain of the Wonderbolts to her new life as beloved wife and glowing mother to a beautiful foal, Spitfire is truly happy. Sex with Soarin' when they really did love each other just happened to be the cherry on the cake. I did have a couple of tears with this. Thank you for this passage.:rainbowdetermined2:

Does give me ideas for the day I finally decide to get hitched with someone.....that's still a long ways off for me though, despite I'm 27....

All it needed was: "Mawwage! ..... ..... Mawwage, is wut bwings us togevah, todayy.... ..... Wuv.... Twue Wuv...." :pinkiehappy:

Loved this fic. Awesome world-buidling. I absolutely loved the ending! I'll be reading a couple of your other fics, Sir Barton, and if I like what I see, expect a watch... ^^

:pinkiegasp:The Princess Bride! :rainbowlaugh: :trollestia::twilightsmile: I'm gonna save that for one of the princesses, possibly. Though, I am surprised no one made a dub over from A Canterlot Wedding at the end of Season 2 with that. :trollestia:

Correction: Found it in two parts - Here

:raritystarry: This was beautiful senpai :raritystarry:

So cute! Thanks for this cute fic! Spitfire+Soarin - best pair =)
I would like to see it in the canon :3 They have known each other for a long time. For sure they could have relations :3
Hasbro, please, made this in canon!

Loved all the little details here, as well as the focus on pegasi's warrior heritage and traditions. One of the most creative one-shots I've read in a while!

The two pegasi leaned into kiss, Spitfire’s heart racing, Soarin’s for a different reason.

What is the different reason :twilightsheepish:

Well, they were both deeply in love with the other, but Spitfire knew about the unplanned fireworks, her unspoken 'off the record' order to Dash. Soarin, of course, didn't. Spits was a little concerned about the timing, Soarin had nothing but her on his mind.

Ooh right thanks tho :pinkiesmile:
