Fluttershy can't stop remembering her sad past, not that a visit from the Cutie Mark Crusaders helps at all. Will she be able to keep her past a secret, or will she have to come clean with the pony she wants most to keep the secret from.

Good but I would really like it if this was expanded from the comic it's based on as suggested. :eeyup:

3362735 The one recently posted in the Fluttershy group.

You know, you would think that the orphanage would have someone standing on the other side of the door 24/7, just to catch the person that knocked before they had time to run away, because I'm sure that it wasn't the first time that a foal was dropped off in the same way. (just a thought...)

But I would also like to see this story expanded on from the comic, because it has such great potential to be so much more than just the comic without the pictures.

Maybe they do, maybe he or she was just asleep at the time :unsuresweetie:
I have more ideas for the story, this is just to set up for the rest.

It was actually in the CMC Clubhouse group, but I don't doubt that it could be in the Fluttershy group.

3362867 I saw it too. It was also in the the Fluttershy group, and since you've seen it too, maybe you can answer this:

Is it just me, or does Fluttershy look really hot with short hair?:pinkiehappy:

She looks good either way... but, yes, she does.

of course(I thought it was fitting:twilightsmile:)

You are one of the few authors who can constantly make such good bitter-sweet stories

It was great but I hope your are going to do more with this story as well. Because I am really wondering if scoots is ever going to find out that Fluttershy is her mother and also wondering if rainbow knows that Fluttershy is the mother of scoots or not as well. Hope you continue this to find out the answer to these question. Also this really a great fic that was great to read too.

I recommend you read it again, I have expanded the story a bit and I hope you enjoy it.

Don't worry, there's plenty more of this storyline.

right here we go.

You've capture my attention. Now I cannot wait for Rainbow Dash to find out. :rainbowhuh:

No, they wouldn't. Consider the implications if that practice became known: they'd end up making parents who wished to put a child up for adoption anonymously unable to do so, which could lead to far worse alternatives. And what good would come of doing so, just to unmask those who might wish anonymity? What's to be gained?

I have read this again loved how you expanded this chapter and now looking forward to the next chapter even more than before to see what going to happen next and was this story is going.

3362818 I think they would understand that sometimes the mother (or father in some cases) just can't afford to take care of the child or there's some other reason. If the decision's been made, I don't see how someone being there could help.

Wow... I can actually remotely relate to Flutters here. I used to have many dreams that one man I'd never met before always showed up in. One dream, I had a child, and he was the father. I didn't know what my family would think of me, but he was always there. I hope, someday, I meet a man like him. Although those dreams didn't turn up in reality, they stirred up a lot of mystery in me.

I can't wait to find out who the father is.

I'm glad you expanded it:twilightsmile:it's much better now:twilightsmile::twilightsmile::twilightsmile:

so cute I can't wait for more, if theres gonna be more :3

You will continue this story!

I think this is one of my favorite stories so far. It's short but sweet and I can't wait till the next chapter(If there is one) </3 Anyways, keep up the good work, Mr. Whooves :pinkiehappy:

I NEED CLOSURE :raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry:

Amazing. I knew Fluttershy would make a great mom, but Scootaloo???? Scootaloo is nothing like Fluttershy! That's one of the reasons I love this story. It adds mystery to who the father might be.

3363578 Just read it again... very well done. This is much better than the first draft.

I saw a comic of this and I can't tell which came first. This or the comic?

The comic came first, I forgot to put in the description that it's based off of that comic. I actually don't know who it is that made the comic so I don't have a name to credit for it.

And cry :raritycry::raritycry::raritycry:. This was super sweet I'm glad I finally got around to it. I hope you continue this story line because this was really good. So yeah have some approval


i would soo read if some one fleshed out this story

Thank you, though, that wasn't the original artist, he said so in his description. But he did link to the original artist at least, so it's all good, just look out for things like that in the future. :twilightsmile:

Sad Fluttershy is one of the worst things in the world, and you just did it. You...you MONSTER! :flutterrage:

Anyways, I thought this was great. The build up was pretty emotional, and that flashback after the Crusaders arrived on her doorstep was just so....:fluttercry:

However, I do think that that ending was a little abrupt. If you'd just gone on just a tad longer I'd love the story even more.

Have my feels :fluttershysad: and a mustache. :moustache:

I know it's overused, but...

RIGHT IN THE FEELS!!!:fluttercry::raritycry::pinkiesad2::scootangel:

Update! Yay! :yay:

My only complaint is that the conversation between Fluttershy and Scoots seemed somewhat lacking. Scoots just says she has weak wings, Fluttershy tells her that she has weak wings too and that she and Rainbow will help her out. I feel like it could have used more substance. Like Scoots voicing her dissatisfaction with herself and her wings, worrying that she's disappointing Rainbow, something like that.

And I've really been wondering whether or not Rainbow knows that Scoots is Fluttershy's daughter. As it is, it could go either way. You never mentioned Rainbow being around when Fluttershy had Scoots, but I'd think that she would have at least gone to visit her friend after she gave birth. Either way, it should be interesting when it all comes out.

I eagerly await more :twilightsmile:

It's only a little but I've added more there.

I think it's an improvement.

I'm glad this is continuing :pinkiehappy:


This was amazing. I love Scootalove, and this chapter was full of it. :yay:

Great update, but I wonder how Pinkie and Rainbow will take the news when they find out the FULL story connection between Fluttershy and Scootaloo ? :rainbowhuh:

Well you got me again.

will scootaloo find out that Fluttershy is her mom?:scootangel:

*Uses epic announcing voice*
Find out in the next installment.... or possibly the one after the next installment...

No spoilers. :ajsmug:
