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.



This story is a sequel to Soft Spoken With a Big Heart

Takes place during the events of Head in the Clouds.

After the train wreck incident, both Fluttershy and Big Macintosh have developed a strong interest in each other. The problem is, they are both extremely shy ponies who barely speak out about anything. Two months have gone by and neither have been able to act on their feelings despite it being on their minds day in and day out. Is it possible for a relationship, or even just friendship to bloom if the two ponies in question are nearly incapable of voicing their thoughts and feelings?

A story of finding the courage to face your fears and make sacrifices for those you love. It's not important that you SAY how much you care. It's important that you SHOW how much you care.

Aw yes! This is going to be good.


(I'll try to come out of hiding and comment more.)


Haha thank you:eeyup:

I don't bite :pinkiecrazy:

oh my god yes, I need to read it

Huzzah! The awaited sequel hath arrived!
...We really need a Luna picture....


Took a while to get to it, but finally got it :yay::eeyup:

I loved soft spoken with a big heart, as it gave a lot of characterization to Mac while keeping in with the shows portrayal and I am ecstatic that you are making a sequel and that that there maybe fluttermac my favorite ship. You are a great writer and I hope that by reading your work I can absorb a small fraction of your immense skill. You rock and this story is gonna rock!


Aw shucks :twilightsmile:

Thank you very much :eeyup:

When granny smith let him go I was like Yeah score 1 for granny and when Big Mac talked to AJ while tossing the umbrella I laughed, cause he's just standing there like uuuhhh hhhuuu, you were saying? XD


Granny's word is law in the Apple household :ajsleepy::eeyup:

Yeah but she still gets a point. She may be crazy at times but she's also just plain awesome at others. This is her being awesome.


(I suggest you add an extra steel layer to your roof. :pinkiecrazy:)

Ah, so we're going to see Rapidfire royally fuck up from their point of view? Nice.

Just you wait, AJ. You'll find a stallion one day...


trust me, i'm looking forward to writing it :pinkiecrazy: I enjoy writing Rapidfire's misfortunes :rainbowdetermined2:


I've found i prefer chapter over oneshots. It's easier to manage, write, and edit when i have smaller chunks. Plus it gets more publicity over time :eeyup:

I'm gonna put a trampoline next to me, so when you crash through my roof it'll propel you right out xD for the lulz

4357688 And then I'll bounce back in and think its fun and I will never leave you alone again. BRING ON THE BIG GUNS!! :pinkiecrazy:



I can see you're having trouble with Pinkie as well. Keep writing.

Talking to Fluttershy is like diffusing a bomb, good thing she comes with a manual! :eeyup:

And I know what you mean about this couple; Fluttermac is all about the subtleties and body language. You can wring a whole lot of tension out of that and I can feel it! It makes them overcoming the awkwardness all the more rewarding. :pinkiehappy:

ALL THE 4TH WALL BREAKS!!!:pinkiehappy::raritystarry: Can't wait to see what the important info is.

Rarity must be seething that Applejack is doing all the matchmaking.


I've been a little busy :raritywink::eeyup::pinkiehappy:

CHAPTER!!! YAYYYY!! :pinkiehappy:

(Where's that trampoline you promised? :twilightoops:)


It's a metaphorical trampoline. *Ducks and hides while your brain explodes:pinkiecrazy:*

Guess Mac was like Buck the last rule. Well, wonder how AJ will feel about how it's going so far.

Was Fluttershy's wings erected throughout the moment?

*squeal* This is the cutest thing ever!
*fangirls and dies*

Dat emotional ice breaker!


Heheh thanks :yay:

I'm challenging myself to see just how adorable I can make everything fluttershy does :eeyup:


Mac's pick up line is showing up :rainbowlaugh:

Please finish this. Its so perfect and I've enjoyed reading it so far. I'm not even an Fluttermac shipper but you make it work!
:yay: :eeyup: :applejackconfused::pinkiegasp:


I'm glad you like it :twilightsmile:

The key to a good shipping fic is to also make it a story worth reading. :eeyup: I'm not just biting my lip while writing kissing scenes :rainbowlaugh:

Thanks for reading, I promise to update frequently :yay:


Also nice use of the faces, I just picked up on that :pinkiehappy:


I'm glad you are committed to it and I'm glad you follow their personalities so well. I always hate it when I see people just push them together and have Fluttershy have nerves and then nothing or just don't even introduce that and start it off as if they are past that point.

Also I see so much of myself in the Fluttershy in this fic with the constant use of sorry

I'm also glad you picked up my emotes. I just looked and saw them and I was like "Wait these would be perfect." Also I'm always one for messing with emotes anyway! :twilightblush:


Again thanks :yay:

I'm glad I'm doing the characters justice. I will admit, I LOVE it when someone comments and tells me something around the lines of "i don't like the ship but I love the story" :twilightsmile:

I think you're doing a brilliant job of showing dialogue through everything but words. It's a refreshing and amazing read! :pinkiehappy:



Thank you :twilightsmile:

I always thought that if these two were to get together, it wouldn't be very verbal :fluttershyouch::eeyup:

Thanks for reading and commenting:yay:


The ride never ends :pinkiecrazy:

Absolutely Fantasmic. I get to follow another story!!! *squeels*


It's always great to have you :pinkiesmile:

You made my night. Speaking of which I must rest. I shall resume reading in approximately 8 hours


Ooooh, chapter. :pinkiehappy:


Thank you very much:twilightsmile:

I hope you enjoy the other stories :eeyup:

Season 4 is now over and I want to cry

Sweet. If you do do the size comparison I would like to see it. I usually imagine Big Mac being at least 2 or 2 1/2 fluttershys tall.


About to go throw it together then write another chapter :yay:
