She doesn't believe her until night falls and the Chaos King comes with his army. Shrunk in the battle, Fluttershy must venture with the nutcracker into the Land of Sweets to defeat the Chaos King and break his evil spells.

A great writer writing a story based on a great story equals :pinkiehappy: :pinkiehappy: :pinkiehappy:

I can't wait for more

this is a good start, already we have all our characters set up and i look forward to seeing the events play out. You can really tell that you put a lot of thinking into your work and it clearly shows just how much detail went into this

I was just thinking today, how nice it would be to see a nutcracker mlp fan fic. I'm reading your brainwaves DF. Lol

I'm so excited to read this! You are one of my favorite authors! I know from your previous work, and I can already tell, that this story is going to be well thought out and very descriptive! Please update soon! I can't wait to see what happens! Oh, and I seriously hope this is fluttercord, which is the best MLP fanfic genre out there!

Man look like you bet me too it.I was thinking of writing this story even though i have to play that song so may time but I think you do better on writing it.

Awesome Job DF:yay:

Wonderful job, Disney, I think I can see where this story is going, Fluttercord :twilightsheepish:, still, I'm looking forward to every second of it ;)

Love this already ^-^ Can't wait for more!

5381345 You could still write your own version...as long as it's not too close to mine.

Oh, how I loved this! Can't wait for the next one!

This is incredible please more! You are great with describing things such as the nutcracker's appearance! Please make more!

5382798 nah I think I'll think of something else to write.

Can I have some more, please!!! lol

This is getting good already. I look forward to more chapters. Good job so far, DF.

I love the cover art!

MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!! Why are you so amazing!!! IM CRYING OF JOYNESSSS lol :twilightsheepish::raritystarry::yay:

This was a very good chapter. That is all.

You have made my Holiday! And I thought working on my school play of It's A Wonderful Life was going to do that!!:heart:

SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! :rainbowkiss:
OMG, I am fully emotionally invested in this, this is soooo good!!!!!! :yay:

Hold up! Flutters and Button are siblings in this one?! HEAD CANON!!!!!!:pinkiegasp:

I love this story so far it's amazing! :raritystarry:


Oh my gosh!!! I love it! I love it! You write so good! I can't wait for more! I love fluttercord!

I'm excited for more:pinkiehappy: This sounds cool:)

Did I mention Discord is so much fun to write as the Mouse King?

Yes! Yes you have and I strongly agree! Discord fits the role well. I basically saw Fluttercord coming and have no objections to it (mostly because it too is one of my favorite ships).

DF WRITING FLUTTERCORD?! Who would even question this? Lol
I'm loving the story so far DF. :raritywink:

"This isn't over yet!" Discord shouted up to Fluttershy as the dogs carried him off. "I'll get you, my pretty! And your little dolls too!" He stuck out his tongue. "Blech! Could I sound any more cliché?"

No, no you could not :rainbowlaugh:

So glad this is Fluttercord! I was hoping that Discord would be able kidnap her! That's not bad, right? :unsuresweetie:

Love the story so far! Keep up the updates!:yay:

I love this! I think you picked the perfect characters for their respective roles and I can't wait to see how you put a pony spin on this tale.

My reaction with the whole Fluttershy and Discord scene

Very good! I can't wait to read more!:yay:

Great twist on a classic story. I wonder if Discord will end up with 3 heads?

Awesome job! :rainbowkiss: I am loving this story right now! I cannot wait for Fluttershy and Discord to meet again! :pinkiehappy: I am excited to meet "the freedom fighters!" :twilightsmile: Keep up the good work! :yay: Oh and...
UPDATE :flutterrage:

Can't wait to read more

So awesome!!! I'm loving it!

ok first of all...I LOVE THIS STORY.
and then second of all did you ever watch the black cauldron as a kid because you kind of did something from it. if you don't know what it is then i'll tell you. you see hen wen the pig can forsee thing just like twilight did. and how she does it is...well with a bucket of water just like twilight. so ya if you can just clear things up about it then that will be great:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:


Fun fact: 'Barbie in the Nutcracker' is one of the only Barbie films not to have a Rarity's VA in it.
However, you can find the VAs who give us Trixie, Silver Shill, Diamond Tiara, and Cadance.
(don't believe me? wiki it.)

5394303 Whoa, Spike too, apparently!
So...Diamond Tiara was Kelly, Cadence was the Peppermint Girl, Trixie was Aunt Drosselmeyer, Spike was a maid, and Silver Shill was Captain Candy.
BOOM! Mind blow!

I am freaking out by all the appearances!!!!!!:pinkiecrazy:

a bit of the fortunetelling was inspired by The Black Cauldron and Kung Fu Panda 2.

Thought of that when they came up when I was reading it.

Hope the next ones up soon I'd like to see how the Apples will take to visitors.

I saw this and went

You know, if Discord were smart he would notice that the prophecy specifies Shining and Cadence getting back together once he's overthrown - which would mean that it could be averted right now if he just killed Cadence. Dunno if that would prevent the overthrow, but it would make sure the prophecy couldn't come true.

Hey disney not to rush you but plz update
