I always wanted to see(Or at least, read) Celestia talking Abacus Cinch down liking that.

Is the next part going to be your version of Fluttershy reforming Discord?

"Well, he strides into the room, a light glows from him, I hear music, he's yet to bring me flowers and sweep me off my hooves, but I'll know when he's the one when he makes me laugh…" she sighed lovingly.

'Mickey Mouse and the Three Musketeers' reference!:pinkiegasp:I loved that movie!:raritystarry:

My mind broke.:applejackconfused:


And I always loved the head cannon that Wind Rider is Lightning Dust's grandpa.:scootangel:

6936043 That would make sense actually.

Also, the Tangled reference was cute. :rainbowkiss:

6937190 Wait, there was a Tangled reference I didn't catch?!:pinkiegasp:


"Just you being a Wonderbolt is enough for me. You finally achieved your dream."
"I did…Now that I have it, what do I do now?"
"I guess…you look for a new dream."
"A new dream…?" he thought it over until his eyes widened in realization.

6937203 Oh god, I'm so stupid!:facehoof:

This is so cuteee!!:rainbowkiss:

:rainbowkiss: Don't think I didn't notice the Barbie reference! :twilightsmile:

6935974 I was just about to say that:rainbowlaugh:

So, now that Valentine's Day has passed, what other kinds of stories you going to put in this series?

that was cute :twilightsmile: i love fluttercord. and i'm very curious to see how Crisalys enter in the history.

6944564 I take it you haven't read The Midnight Dance and it's sequels, they were the stories that started this whole thing.

Okay, before anyone gets mad at this comment, I just want to say that I love this series. It's probably THE ONE fanfiction series that I cannot stop reading. I should know because this would be my fifth time going through it. :twilightsheepish: I love reading it so much that I hate it when I find plot holes. I especially hate it when I find plot holes that I have a hard time explaining away, but here's what I noticed. The family got Spike after Sombra was cursed, and Sombra was cursed for 10 years, which means Spike can't be older than 10. So, unless dragons age twice as fast as ponies in this universe, how in the world can Spike possibly be old enough to marry Applejack during the events of The Midnight Dance?! I'm sorry. :pinkiesad2: I don't mean to be critical, but that's just bothering me a bit. :unsuresweetie:

6987213 As an author it's hard to remember some of the things you wrote, but I am trying to remember where it says that it's been ten years from when Sombra was cursed, because I don't think I gave out an exact timeline of when the curse happened. I could be wrong, since it has been awhile since I've written these stories. :twilightoops:

6989789 In Sweet Pea, when Sweetie wishes to see her parents, Sombra says that Celestia had been running the kingdom by herself for 10 years.

6989908 Ah. :facehoof: Well the best answer I can give to that is dragons age differently, and it is entirely possible, because the show doesn't give us exact details of dragon biology. :unsuresweetie:

6995601 "sigh" Don't you hate it when you love a series so much that you read it enough times to find plot holes? :ajbemused:

By any chance there'll be a story involving Moondancer in the series?

I seriously stopped when I came to this sentence:

Sour Sweet gestured, "Who cares about the dragon?! At least one of them didn't marry some sort of magical spirit who can help them win in every single event!"

:facehoof:*bangs head on desk*


Fancy gestured, "But how do you propose we made it look like we were cheating?"
"Oh, I have one idea…" He slowly turned his head toward the disguised Lord of Chaos and everyone got the gist.


7159254 I'm not really sure what you're getting at here :rainbowhuh:

Is this supposed be a prologue of sorts to your next installment?

7159703 No. Just random stories about the family.

Rarity muttered under her breath, "It's called communication… Every marriage needs it to survive…"

This line alone has earned my applause.

7159774 True indeed.

7159681 Let me explain. They want to keep the fact that Fluttershy married Discord to keep themselves from being accused of cheating secret. Then Sour Sweet says the old 'at least they don't have...' line when they do. As the sucker punch, they come up with the idea to make it seem like they were cheating with the idea that Discord helped them cheat.

Don't be worried though, I love it. I just don't know to laugh or facepalm at the irony of events.

7159846 I laughed. Dramatic irony can be fun. :rainbowlaugh:

7159718 Is the next installment going to be about Snow Pea's ball, or is that little tidbit just a framing device? That one detail felt strangely significant for some reason. :applejackunsure:

Princesses Sugarcoat (Earth pony), Sunny Flare (Unicorn), Sour Sweet (Pegasus), Indigo Zap (Pegasus), and Lemon Zest (Earth pony)

Let me guess. :ajbemused: After Queen Celestia fired Ms. Cinch, Queen Sassy hired her as a governess for her daughters. Am I right? :raritywink:

7159874 I am debating on expanding Snow Pea's ball later in the oneshots, so we'll see.

7159846 Ah, yes. That was kind-of a running gag on my part. :twilightblush:

Sombra stopped to look at a portrait of Celestia. He sang out, "And… She has beautiful eyes… Your spirits rise… When she walks in the room…"
Sweetie sang, "I see…"
"Doors close… And the chemistry grows…She's like a rose…That's forever in bloom!" Realizing then he had an audience, he went back to business

I can no longer listen to this song without picturing this scene. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Back in Equestria...
:pinkiegasp:Knee wobble, eye flutter, twitchy tail, nose twitch!
:duck:Another Pinkie Sense, dear?
:rainbowderp:What's it this time?
:pinkiehappy:A new ship's been formed~!
:facehoof:I want to ask... But after last time...

The blue Earth pony shuddered

Umm, isn't Party Favor a unicorn?

Who knows how genetics work in Equestria?

Every fan of a work of fiction ever. :rainbowlaugh:

This was great. I was wondering when you guys were going to post a Sunset-centered oneshot.

This is the closest you're going to come to supporting Spember, isn't it? :raritywink:

Wait a minute. :pinkiegasp: Sunset knew that Caballeron was still alive. Did she ever report him to the authorities? Where is he now? Is he coming back for his revenge on Rumble? :fluttershyouch:

7265150 Ikr? I was like, whelp, there goes my ship...

:moustache:Hi everyone! We're back!
:ajsmug:Welcome back! I was worried 'bout y'all! Now tell us all 'bout it!
:pinkiehappy:The Dragon Lord found you out and forced you to stay there until the Gauntlet of Fire was over and you made friends with the Dragon Lord's daughter and grandson and the daughter won the Gauntlet so that this mean dragon wouldn't do anything to you and the old Dragon Lord was about to make you stay there, but he heard you were royalty so he had to comply to the Dragon Law and your new friend, the one that won the Gauntlet, let you leave! And Little Apple Jewel made a new friend too, right?!

7267436 Crud :facehoof: well it has been awhile since I've read the comic and it is an AU anyway so no biggie. :twilightsheepish:

7267587 Party Favor is a unicorn. Are you or KidatHeart5 going to fix that or does the AU hand wave apply? :applejackunsure:
