Princess Twilight has to marry wealth to save her kingdom, but the king's not what she expected. What's worse, while she's to get closer to the king, she finds herself growing fonder of his captain. While at the same time the king finds he's growing closer to another mare, one who he feels a deep connection to like never before. When so many things stand between the pairs what will they decide to do in the end? Which will the two choose at the end of this game Love or Power? And what will their choices mean at the end?

A/N The *sex* tag is just for implied themes, there is nothing explicit in this story.

Woah... :rainbowderp: My mind was blown just by reading the first 5 paragraphs. :rainbowderp: I am just gonna go ahead and give this a like and a favorite, since this seems interesting! :pinkiehappy:

Are people only disliking it because it contain FlashLight? This is a well written alternate story.

5191766 IDK :fluttershysad:I wish the people that don't like the story would tell me why. I don't mind people not liking it, I want to grow as a writer :raritystarry: so if someone has something that can improve my skills I want to know.

And even if they are only disliking it because of the pairings :pinkiegasp: I still wont mind but I would like to know if that's the reason so I don't have to wonder :pinkiehappy:

Yeah, i just searched Flash tagged stories and most of them have equal or a lot more dislikes than likes. You shoudnt really mind the rating until someone actually respond with a criticism. After Rainbow Rocks people just losing patience with Flash and are biased toward any of his fanfics. Im myself am neutral for his stories although also cant say i care about him. Its still better than using Big Mac as a generic stallion for every mane6 shipping. Im on the other hand mostly into Discord stories.:pinkiehappy:

I haven't read your story yet has I'm slightly confused about the pairing in it. It's featured in the 'Twilight's Marem' group (a group in which Twilight is paired ONLY with female characters), but is also featured in the 'FlashLight' group. Does that mean that your story uses a Rule-63 (gender bent if you're unfamiliar with the term) Flash Sentry?

5192845 :rainbowlaugh: I didn't even know it was being featured. So did you read it and clear the confusion :rainbowwild:

WHOOO! You got a fimfiction account! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

5193088 yup wanted to expand my reader base!

wow crazy good story great job

Isn't it bad luck to see the bride before the wedding?

Wow, atomicpuffin. You seriously outdone yourself with this beautiful romantic story. If we had gifs of Twilight clopping her hooves together, I would add some immediately. these will have to do :heart::heart::heart::heart:
Amazing job


Side Note: I only wish you would've waited until they were married, makes the forbidden fruit taste all the more sweeter :raritywink:

But absolutely unbelievably, beautiful story! :yay::yay::yay::yay::yay:

BROHOOF!!!

5194867 :raritywink: When have you ever known Discord to be superstitious :rainbowlaugh:

5194895 :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:Thanks glad you enjoyed it!:twilightblush:

5195040 Well, he kind of went a bit too far with breaking tradition, for Fluttershy's sake, don't ya think, I mean after they had numerous nights out of wedlock

5195209 True, but since they were engaged I'll forgive him lol

Flashlight XD you ma'am are a genius!

-From The Arrangement from Bride of Discord Oh my gosh please don't kill me DF

Yep.

Two chapter's in and this is already one of the best fics on this site.

5241618 :twilightblush: Oh wow thank you that means a lot to me since I've read so many awesome stories on this site thank you :pinkiehappy:

Ya know, there's a reason I don't like Flashlight. Flash just doesn't have a personality in the show. No background.

This isn't like that.

It's genius! MOAR

I love this story! right when I finished I wanted to read it again!
I love how it is written, I ship both Flashlight and Fluttercord so this story was totally awsome!

So romantic! OMG! SO CUTE! DISCORD ACTED SO CUTE! :yay:

I've read this six times now! And I absolutely love it!! :heart:

I'm so angry at Celestia right now... I want to kill her...

Me: Celestia! I will kill you! :pinkiecrazy:
Celestia: Please have mercy on me!
Me: I can have mercy on you if you let Discord marry Fluttershy. :pinkiesad2:
Celestia: In your dreams!
Me: So then i will kill you! :pinkiecrazy: *kills her* It's all okay now Discord. Now you can marry Fluttershy and this Queen will not tell her not to. :pinkiehappy:
Discord: Okay! Thank you!
And they lived happly ever after. :yay:

AWWWW:twilightsmile:




FLUTTERCORD!!!!!!!!!!!:yay:

CELESTIA IS DEAD MEAT!!!!!!!!:flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage::flutterrage:
*anger growing ALOT!*
CELESTIA! THEE SHALL FACE OUR INNER WRATH AGAINTS THEE!
Sorry,I let out my inner Luna...:twilightblush:
Luna: WE ARE PROUD OF THEE!
Me: THANK THEE!:yay:

Are Blueblood and Fleur ...

CHANGELINGS???!!!

Flashlight....

*a purple,yellow,blue flashlight appears infront of me*

hmmm.... *I put it on*

*two streaks of pink tones come out write the word: Flash-light*
*laughs anoyingly and sarcasticly*

....













Pfft, changelings....

wow....
wow in a good way.

Love this story can't stop reading. It's that AWESOME!

This is amazing.... not one, but TWO romances at the same time?! I think my heart is going to explode!! :yay:

Okey dokey lokey Discord! Now that Celestia is out of the way i don't see why killing her. :twilightsmile: Unless she haves the great idea to act like a Trollestia (:trollestia:) and starts iterupting again. :ajbemused: IF SHE DOES THIS THEN BE SURE THAT I WILL HELP YOU DESTROYING HER KINGDOM! :pinkiecrazy:

Discord: Okay! But do you have any fighting skills?
Me: When i'm VERY mad i can probably destroy anything or anyone (anypony?) while using it as a PUNCH BAG! :pinkiecrazy:
Discord: So is better for her not to do this. :trixieshiftleft:

Oh wow......I've read this eight times now, and every time it's completely AWESOME! And it hits you right in the feels!!

...............................squee......,...........

Discord is in BIG adorable trouble:raritywink:

"HE'S MINE!"

BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA:rainbowlaugh:

Urgh! What is it with kingdoms and marriage inheritance? Why can't Fluttershy marry Discord then ask him if Canterlot can have some money? If everyone did that the world IRL would be a better place!

I actually enjoy Fleur's scenes, mostly cause I can laugh at how wrong she is!

No no no no! I am not worthy to read such brilliantness! Ah what the hec? Must read!!!!!

Cuteness glows! Get it? Flashlight? No? Okay I will stop

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....green green. Meh I will just read on.

what fun is there in making sense?

I can't control the laughter.

Stupid changelings. I never liked them anyway.
