Calm Wind

We writers do not speak. We do not hear. We have no songs. We have no pictures. We only have scripture. From words we bring images. From words we bring emotion. From words we bring life.



Shining Armor and Princess Cadance are happily married, but how did they first get together? They had an interesting first date that they would never forget.

How did their first date go? Well, it depends on which one you ask.

A story of young love and no matter how bad things may go, if you have your heart in the right place, anything is possible.

This story has not been fully edited yet, i apologize for anything sloppy.

This is amazing, really, I can't wait to see more of this, I love it, it is cute and really captivating, I can't wait for the next chapter :D

hmmm. Interesting choice..... Lets read dis


Thank you :twilightsmile:

It was originally planned as a oneshot but I figured why not do some small easy chapters for a change :eeyup:

Updates will be quick :raritywink:

this is going to be an interesting story

This is awesome:rainbowkiss::rainbowdetermined2: Can't wait!:twilightsmile:

4334515 Updates better be quick. :pinkiecrazy:

(And before you ask, yes, it's me again. Do you still have the roof fixer on speed dial?)


He's making a fortune off me :raritydespair:

4334629 He should be thanking me.

I'm dying of laughter. Shining is SO awkward. This is great.

Stay Awesome


PS-Maybe, possibly, could you another SoarinDash fic in the future (probably way after this of course). Just asking....


I have another story after this, but after that I'm planning a third Soarindash :rainbowkiss:

I LOVE THIS STORY!!!!! PLEASE CONTINUE! IT'S PRETTY FUNNY, ALSO!:pinkiehappy::yay::twilightsheepish:

I believe this just got started.
Also Flash Sentry is the perfect candidate for Twilight.

This is a fairly accurate retelling of my first date. Do continue.

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: Some of the best stories ever are the ones told from 2 completely different perspectives and this is no exception. You have Shining who's all like "yeah I got dem smooth moves." and cadence is "yeah he was a mess." Love the comedy. Can't wait for more.


I'm already having a lot of fun with the double perspective thing :twilightsmile:

and no worries, i looked it up so many times to make sure it was Cadance and not Cadence. :eeyup:

4334744 You already made a third SoarinDash:raritywink:

4335428 Your welcome :twilightsmile::rainbowlaugh::rainbowwild::rainbowkiss:

I'm laughing so loudly, my roommate barges in my room and tells me to shut up.
Do proceed with this story.

Okay, first of all, did you know that they have an offical comic arc that explains how Shining Armor and Cadence met? Because when I read the synopsis I was like whaaaaat? This is not how they got together at all. So I'm just wondering if you knew their cannon backstory and wanted to change it, or you didn't know at all so you wanted to write one?

Either way, I think this is a good start for a great story. I'll think of it as an alternate universe, since when you think about it, none of your stories could take place in the FIM universe we know from the show, not even the parts of the show we did not see. :derpytongue2:
After all, cannon is cannon and fannon is fannon.

help spike

help Spike

Isn't Doughnut Joe's shop in Canterlot? Or did he move in one of yours and I forgot?

Shining looked to spike

Shining looked to Spike

surely not be a true man.

So... they met through the mirror? Maybe 'surely not be a true stallion.'?

All right, I'm calling this now. Cadence actually comforted Shining at the movie.


yup, i have read that comic :twilightsmile: But i wanted to write my own take on it:eeyup:


I actually completely forgot that Doughnut Joe was in Canterlot... i'll just take his name off of it :fluttershyouch:

I used "true man" as an expression because if i used stallion again it would've been the third time in like 10 words i used it :pinkiegasp:

As always thanks for being absurdly helpful, i can't believe how easy i pass over so many things when i read my work :twilightoops:

I appreciate your continuous support :eeyup:

Aww, this is so cute!

↓ Trenderhoof is a douchebag, but yeah this is cute

I assured him.
It was truly how I felt.

Eith one too many spaces, or it was the beginning of a new paragraph.

but was

but I was

Shining Armour, once Captain of the Guard, now Prince of the Crystal Empire... and an absolute moron with the mares.

Oh man, I feel so horrible for laughing at Shining Armor's expense. Just the stark contrast between each exerpt makes me laugh. Great job on the story! :twilightsmile:


Eck, thanks for pointing those out:fluttershyouch:

Even the best of us had to start form square one :rainbowlaugh:

4337905 Square one? I'm not even out of the damn box.

Wow, Shining's a really good liar

Congratulations Shining

CHAPTER!!! :pinkiehappy: I actually finished reading the rest of your stories just this morning.


Oh! Thank you for taking the time :twilightsmile: I hope you liked them all :eeyup:

4339334 I did. Are you going to be continuing Weight of Responsibility?


Nope, that story is finished. But it will be relevant in future works :eeyup:

oh my celestia. Shining puts so much sugar on it there may as well be a coat. I think the advice is good but the story is compared to what happened over done on how well it went.

also have a laugh and some remembrance while your at it
hope these links work.

and of course they dont:facehoof:

4339501 Will we find out what happens to them?


For now it's "life goes on" for them. Only now they have each other. But much like how Fluttershy and Big Mac keep getting referenced to, applejack and thunderlane will get similar treatment :eeyup:

4339771 Okay then.

P. S. Next chapter soon. I want next chapter soon. :pinkiecrazy:

P. P. S. What was that crashing noise you just heard? Totally not someone crashing through your roof...

what? Why are you looking at me like that? I didn't do it! Or did I? :trollestia:


*toss an empty water bottle behind my couch*

*someone says "ow"*


4339899 You totally didn't just hear me saying ow. :scootangel:

Oh... I can't wait for Spike and Twilight to compare notes!

(Yay! No errors!)

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: oh my celestia does he play this up. I love seeing his perspective because of how over done it is. Good work bro.

Fluff fluff fluff

So much fluffy fluff fluff! :pinkiehappy:


I had a feeling readers would like this :twilightsmile:

A couple times in my life i have admittedly bent the truth of something to make me sound like a badass :rainbowlaugh:

It's a total guy thing :moustache:
