Fluttershy20


T

The Dragonlords of Terra are a mighty order of warrior ponies formed from the sacrifice of Vidarr to defeat Heimdallr and other monsters that threatened the safety of the planet and everyone living on it. With the life span of a thousand years, they were strong, powerful, fast, and were capable of fighting and beating anything that they came across.

Yet, despite their grandeur, they still needed a break from time to time. So, every hundred years or so, a Dragonlord would leave their brothers and sisters and settle down for a normal life somewhere, so he or she could live a life like they could have before they became Dragonlords. These periods were known among the Order as Retirements.

And Fluttershy Firewing, the last of the Dragonlords, is no exception to this.

Fluttershy intends to enjoy the retirement period while she can, for she knows that her days of enjoying such a life are numbered…

A collection of short stories set in the two years between, ‘Last of the Dragonlords’ and, ‘Last of the Dragonlords: A Good Mare Goes To War’. Only basic knowledge of the first story is needed to read these.

Rated teen for safety.

Hihi, so you did a ministory for the peacetime yourself. :pinkiehappy:

*starts reading*

3516049 I'll be doing a few, actually, mostly on events mentioned in the main story, but since yours was so good, it is now considered canon to my events, so it might be mentioned several times in other shorts. I hope you enjoy these. :twilightsmile:

3516065

I've read it, and liked it. You made the dummy fight so intense. :twilightsmile:

I laughed hard on this line:

Fillies and gentlecolts, I give you the last of the mighty Dragonlords,

:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Also... YAY I'm canon! :pinkiehappy:

3516065 This really deserves some cover art.

3516179 Oh, I know, but I want something of Fluttershy relaxing outdoors and being adorable, and there are so many images to choose from that I can't decide what to go with.

So, how did being a Dragonlord change the reformation of Discord?

3520121 Nothing - except maybe making her more confident in taking him on - this was what she was up to right before the events of the episode happened. No relation other than Applejack asking for assistance regarding the beavers.

So much for being at her side when the time came.....

3520139I was just thinking in terms of Discord's interactions with an ever-so-slightly more "firey" Fluttershy, if you know what I mean.

This is actually very interesting, though the bit about Big Mac being upset at Fluttershy for stooding him up, enough to make such snarky comments, doesn't lay well with me. Big Mac is one of my fav characters and I can't really see him holding a grudge over something as trivial as one date. If anything, I would expect him to come up to Fluttershy, ask her about her reasons, and get over the matter once he hears her opinion. I know I'm slightly idolizing him here, but that's just the way I came to see him.

Other than that, I can't wait to see more 'relaxing' chapters!:pinkiehappy:

3523373 Ah, well I am sorry about that, but I like to think he was in a foul mood when he came up with that comment, so he didn't actually mean it. But he got over it and the two are talking again, at least. Sorry again.

I might put that more into detail a bit later. Something short and sweet. Hope you like the others when they come around, and the lastest chapter of the main story. :twilightsmile:

3521229 Yes, indeed, which makes the moment all the more tragic :fluttershysad:

3523426

No problem, just such a snarky comment from Big Mac was very OOC to me.

Anyway, I really like those short stories and can't wait to see more of them!:pinkiehappy:

Y'know, I had a feeling that I was gonna fave this one way or the other. I just knew it, before I even read it, I knew I was gonna read this and enjoy the ride. God, I forgot how much I love this fic and this world

3541295 And I hope you enjoy the many stories I have planned out. :twilightsmile:

3541315

Always do, and I will continue my quest to get someone to do a live-reading of the first fic...

Why haven't I followed you yet?

3541321 I got a message a few weeks back, actually, saying they would like to do a live reading of it; haven't heard a thing about it since. Maybe soon.

3761500 Thank you, and there will certainly be a few more stories to tell. I wasn't going to do anything like this originally, but I wanted practice and stuff like this was the best way to go at it. I hope you enjoyed it so far :twilightsmile:

3761523 I like to reply to nearly everyone who comments on my stories; they took the time out to write to me so I should do the same. :pinkiehappy:

3761537 It is a pleasure, good sir or madam :twilightsmile:

One or two parts I wouldn't have written, but it was a fun ride all the same. The next anecdote will undoubtedly also be enjoyable. As much as I love A Good Mare Goes to War, it's lacking the interaction between the Mane 6 that makes the show so enjoyable. It's nice to see Dragonshy is still pretty much the same pony we all love. (Acceptable deviations and all) :yay:

3763942 I think I know which part(s) you would have not written, and I agree that it was a big risk to do. But I can quite imagine Twilight doing something as silly as that after having a few to drink; she loves her friends dearly and I imagine she would go a bit overboard in showing that love. Poor or lucky Fluttershy, depending on your view.

And I can see what you mean concerning AGMGTW, but the story demanded they go against her, and that's that for now. And I wanted to change Flutters as minimally as possible when it came to this series, so people would still recognise her as the heart of kindness and see how awesome she can be. Glad you enjoyed it. :twilightsmile:

3764900

My complaints weren't about Twilight, actually. It was a certain stint about Rainbow that irked me. During the drinking contest... complete with a 'flashback' from Flutters shoehorning it into Dash's character. :ajbemused:

3765022 Oh... I see. Fair enough. But some people react differently to alcohol, and, though it will never be seen and it is my head canon, Rainbow kinda gets gassy from it. Sorry :twilightsheepish: it won't happen again, promise. *adds that to things I shouldn't do list*

Next one actually is about Fluttershy, Celestia and Freya (I need to start writing for her again, it's been a long time). A few others are about the sweet pegasus getting a new pony friend, Angel passing away (cause he's dead in AGMGTW), and how she learnt she was still barren.

Will there be any TwiShy in this because that would be pretty cool.

3765533 No, sorry, no shipping of any kind between the six friends.

Apart from this moment where Twilight loses control, and as much as I love Twishy shipping, I want to keep this series open for all to read by not adding any ships that if added would isolate a load more readers.

I will friendship them, though, and that's as far as I will go. Sorry again.

3765654 Oh well at least we still have An Expression of Love for Twishy but I still love them all no matter what.

Finally got around to reading this. Starting to write my own epic novel fanfic, I need resources so I know my writing tools.

Reading this was a nice break for WAGMGTW because she is with her friends again. As much as I like the mentioned story, it does get overwhelming with the chaos going on.

Now on to the next chapter. Great Job.

3766070 Ooo, good luck with that. What's it going to be about, if I may ask?

Glad you enjoyed the first story. I admit as well that it was a nice break from AGMGTW, especially as I am now trying to write my first major battle scene and its quite stressful when I am trying to get it right; I'm considering on working on chapter twenty and leave it for later. Eighteen and Nineteen were kilers, I tell you; they made me cry :fluttercry:

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these little random slices of life that Fluttershy and her friends get up to. :twilightsmile:

I counted four great puns in this story and loved all of them! First we got a nice, though a little changed, quote from Hamlet at the beginning, then there is this little comment from Rarity about Twilight with wings (I'm counting it as a pun to Season 3 Finale). And of course I can't forget about the drinking game! Dwarv vs Elf! Pegasus vs Dragonlord!:pinkiehappy:

As for the fourth pun (though I think it was rather unintentional here) I'll let you watch this video:

3769644 Ah, so you managed to find the first three, but the forth one you mentioned I think was actually unintentional. I did add a Doctor Who reference at the end with the last lines Fluttershy says (from The Vampires of Venice where the Doctor says to Amy's soon-to-be husband that she is a great kisser, and awkward silence ensures). Originally the story was going to end with awkward silence, but I changed at the last minute to have them all laughing about it.

Glad you enjoyed this story, and that I hope you enjoy the other ones I've got planned. :twilightsmile:

If I am immune to the affects of alcohol

Effects.
Something affects us but we are feeling its effects. It's tricky like that.:raritywink:

Goodness, writing An Expression of Love seems to affect(derp) this story. All that almost-TwiShy around.:pinkiehappy:

3769644
I wonder where did I miss the similarity to this video... can't seem to find it... oh well...:derpytongue2:

Keep up the good work!:twilighsmile:

3775874

The very beginning of the video and just before Twilight checks Fluttershy's liver, both the Timelord and the unicorn say the same thing: The Doctor will see you now.

Don't know about you but I find it kind of funny.

3775916
Ah, that! How did I miss that?:facehoof:
You know, in retrospect this entire scene would be interesting if RD was awake during it, better, Rarity happened to listen in on it... take their talk about the doctor out of context for a moment and add in Twi's behaviour the night previous.:trollestia:

3776125
I'll admit that would be hilarious!:rainbowlaugh:

3775874 Firstly *hugs* I'm so glad to hear from you again, it's been ages! :pinkiehappy:

Secondly, darn, I have been having a fight with the dictionary (and the dictionary keeps winning) about the meaning between the two words and finally I realised today what each one means. Effects = constant. Affects = consequences afterwards. I'll have to keep that in mind. Thank you.

Thirdly, I try to keep the two differentiated, but when you have in your head that Twishy is best pairing, then it tends to slip through the bars and get in there. Plus I had quite a fun, but nervous time writing that scene.

Finally, funny you mention that actually, because I had an idea where Twilight asks about a peculiar birthmark Fluttershy has on her inner thigh (something I came up with ages ago since the beginning of the series and yet couldn't think of a great place to add it in) and Rarity overhears thier conversation about it as Twi looks at the mark.

I'm glad you enjoyed the story, and I hope you will continue to enjoy all the future ones. :twilightsmile:

3781291
Awww, *hugs back* it has been too long, hasn't it?
I kinda lost the drive to read most of the fics on my list, only reading a bit here or there. I'm slowly coming out of this thingy and one of the first reads will be your stories. However, it is going to take a moment, I seem to have four unread chapters on both of your fics. As in, four here, four there...

You would destroy the reader's block with four chapters?
We would destroy the reader's block with one chapter! You are superior in only one respect!
What is that?
You are better at breaking! Raise a literary barrier!

Hmm... could've been better. And to think that I do not watch the Doctor... yet I could cite this exchange from memory at any given time.
And every time I read four, I just have to hear it in that Dalek's voice.

As for affect/effect, glad to help. Though I hope it's not misguided. I just know that you use effect as in "something can have an effect on someone/something", while the other is in "something affects someone/something". Though as I said, tricky... and I'm not the best teacher. Far from it, actually. But if you feel you understand, good for you!:twilightsmile:

3781934 Ah, I know the feels on that, especially when it comes to the dreaded evil of Writer's Block.

:pinkiegasp: Dun, dun, DUNNNNN! :pinkiecrazy:

Ha, really? That's a bit spooky, to be honest, four each. Oh, well, get to them when you can; they're not going anywhere... I hope.

Hehe, I can understand what you mean about that. Sometimes when I see something I have to imagine it in a Dalek voice. I can't think of it any other way. Don't worry about the effect/affects thing now, I will certainly try to keep it in mind, thank you. :twilightsmile:

3782095 ALERT! ALERT! THE DOCTOR IS REGENERATING!!! I dare you to read that in a Scottish accent instead of a Dalek one.

3784151 Tried and laughed :rainbowlaugh: Brilliant one. :pinkiehappy:

3785664 Eagerly awaiting both Season 8 of Modern Who and your next chapters, good Sir Author. (AUTHOR! AUTHOR! KING OF THE FIMFIC! OH, STOP GROVELING!) <- Now you are laughing, or at least smiling.

3786403 Oh, if there's one thing I can't stand it's grovelling.

I admit I cannot remember what God says next in that bit, but I do recall how funny it is. And yes, I am smiling and laughing.

3786424 This happiness brought to you by ADHD and randomness. Remember: logic is like a garter snake. It's made of paper and smells strongly of Gouda.

Finallllllllly!!!!!!!!
Only A good mare goes to war is left in my favourite section!!!!
I can't wait to read those 162.602 words. Damn, that'll be a heck of a read again.

Dragon:moustache:

4001153 And I hope you enjoy the story, good sir :twilightsmile:

4005704
I will.
But from what I know so far (1st chap) I'm more than ready to kick some intergalactic flank.
Oh and I really hope you'll somehow cure Flutters of her state of being barren.
It's just tearing my heart out and smashing it between two colliding planets.

Dragon:moustache:

I nealy have forgotten about this story,

it would be how I feel if I see Twilight one day with a pair of wings

Clever what you did here
