Based on Rumpelstiltskin. Fluttershy, a humble miller's daughter is summoned to the castle to meet a king that's crude to everyone around him. Can this mare's golden heart help him change his ways?

Oh dear, Zephyr, what have you done?

Good start to the story!

After rewatching "Discordant Harmony" yesterday, I'm in the mood for a good Fluttercord story!

Sorry there is not as much traffic to your other works lately. But this is going to be interesting.

Well I'm certainly not complaining over a Fluttercord story so I certainly can't wait to see where this goes but I hope you don't give up on your other stories or at least not It Runs in the Family because I was getting into that story. But I definitely prefer Fluttercord every time :twilightsmile: so looking forward to the next chapter.

Discord you magnificent troll, I read your book!

But I am intrigued more on how this will play out.

This is a story based on the fairy tale about turn straw to gold??? I don't remember the name but I'm pretty sure it is based on that.

Beautiful story!!!
Keep writing it!!!

Fluttercord and Applespike forever!!!

This is an intriguing concept. I also like what you did with Discord's character.

Hmm, if Discord is Rumple, how are you going to work the first born child part?

"Well it all started when my father and Zephyr were on their way to the castle…"

:rainbowderp: "Say no more."

I personally think RD would not be "Rarity's assistant" full time , butSoarin's squire... but it works.

Just one request, please don't make Fancy Pants a butler or the major domo. Maybe a high ranking member of the court or government, but not a castle staff member.

Well I gotta say that I am loving this story book here,:heart::heart: even better with Fluttershy in it and the other Maine six:raritywink: (or five) are in this tragic story of the stone hearted king. Lets hope to see what happens next.:pinkiehappy: good luck on this story book my friend.:twilightsmile::rainbowdetermined2:

And I started following you to. Hope you follow me to my friend. :raritywink::rainbowdetermined2:

I have to agree with Twilight, Fancy Pants sounds like he would make a better king.... wait Silver Quill has been doing videos on Jungian Archtypes in MLP, and while he hasn't actually tackled the Jungian King Archetype he has presented the case that of all the male characters Fancy filts best in that archetype.... CartoonNerd12 you magnificent .... I read your stories!

No pony seems to like working for the king. Well I can't blame them. But maybe they are going about this the wrong way. Maybe instead of discouraging Fluttershy they should try using her deal as means to leverage a wayu out. Maybe have Fluttershy ask the king to demonstrate his 'love' by say letting the staff be happy one baby step at a time.

Wow.... I knew the king was bad, but... . Fluttershy has her work cut out.
It's both nice and sad to know the Mane6 and most of their special someponies aren't alone.
I think I can guess the destination but it's the route that has stumped. ... wait a minute Screwball hasn't made an interjection in a while... o_O

Let me guess: Discord is Rumpelstiltskin.

haven't met Fancy Pants yet, and he's still a better monarch.... guess that's why Silver Quill argues that he represents the Jungian King archetype.

:rainbowderp: :rainbowhuh: you don't say.

She was gone before Flash could say another word.

, I feel sorry for the guy. :pinkiesad2: I am going to re-read The Midnight Dance, Chapter 12.

I hope we see "Rumplestiltskin" in the next chapter.

Glad to finally meet Fancy, nice that he lets the staff party upon his arrival. So what will happen tonight?

Well...I can see how it works when the king go's, every pony party's all night:raritystarry: when he's gone business, and the songs are pretty random for pony's like them sing out of nowhere,or in party's,:twilightsmile: that was pretty random, like pinkie pie and cheese sandwich.:pinkiehappy:
Loving it already aaannnddd.....PARTY TIME EVERYONE YYEEAAAAAHHH!!!:pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Also I really do hope Fluttershy can try to help the king be kind and less.... Controlling over everything around him and his servants.:trixieshiftright: good luck on that Fluttershy I hope you know what your doing. :twilightsmile: Believe it or not,:rainbowdetermined2: easier said then done....or not....maybe?!:derpyderp1:

Hey, CN12, what song do Time Turner and Derpy sing and what movie is it from?

Never mind, looked it up, Cabin Fever from The Muppets Treasure Island

Lemme guess, Applejack is looking fat because she's pregnant?:ajsmug:

...I just had this crazy thought that the king IS Discord, and he's helping Fluttershy spin the straw into gold, Discord DID say his heart was stone, plus he really wants Fluttershy to be his bride, so maybe that's why he's secretly helping her, and giving her time so that she can fall in love with him...crazy thought right? probably inaccurate but it's still a GOLDEN plot:pinkiehappy:

"I am the friend you need...", sorry could not help myself. Happy that somepony else saw the movie. So will Count Capper sweet talk Rarity?:raritywink:
Nice to see someone (Celestia) point out the flaw in Twilight's approach. I am surprise Cadance hasn't picked up on the repressed feelings Twilight might have for Flash.

BTW where's Shining?

All in good time. :raritywink:

As for Shining Armor, he's around, I just didn't have room for him in this chapter. Just think of him patrolling the castle while the summit was going on.

First fanfic I’ve read with Capper: :yay: I decided he is my favourite character in the movie. So will this be a love triangle with Rarity, Capper and Fancy Pants? Because while I still like Fancity, Capperty has become my new favourite Rarity ship.
Oh well fun chapter and can’t wait for the next :twilightsmile:

The king's a ..... sorry this is an E rated story...to Rarity.
Smooth move Count. I am assuming that Capper isn't actually in charge of the nation but it's main diplomat. I smell a massively jealous fueled attempt to win a heart while the other guy is just doing this for fun in escalating one-up-manship.


Who is Capper's true love?!?

I just want everybrony to know that; for some weird reason; i ship Capper and Capitain Celeano:pinkiehappy: I know, WEIRD.

Anyway, as always love your stories!!!
Hope to see more Fluttercord moments soon!!!
Your awesome!!!

I see in the show itself more like Capper and Rarity but I don't think he has a 'true love' in this, I get the feeling he'll be preseeved as competition by the king for Fluttershy after Interacting with the mare the first time and will play the role once he sees the king reacts.

Please make rarity and capper fall in love! That's my otp

Given her and KidatHeart's track record... Rarity will be with Fancy Pants.

But that was BEFORE capper was introduced. Besides, a girl can dream!

Yes a girl can, I am going off an established trend of the author and her sister. Maybe in the next one.

Well... .ayhe dreams do come true.

No! Please tell me it won't be a RarityXCapper thing!!!

And... FLUTTERCORD!!! For a little moment but it still counts!!

I'm curious to see what the final payment (the child) comes into play.

Ah Capper the charmer, smooth count.
So Discord is confronting himself... at some point he's going to not care about the bet but Fluttershy... will see how.

Never! The ship will sail forever! RarityxCapper for the win! FIRE THE CANNON!

I know someone Twilight can get to help her... Aaahhh Savior of the Universe.

Good call on Discord's part to not trust Capper. :trixieshiftright:I get the feeling that he's going to let his identity slip to Fluttershy by over-correcting.

:raritydespair:But my one true love!!!:raritycry:


I think this was pretty good, though I am hoping that Discord will have a change of heart and realize the way he's running his kingdom is no good.

"She was even getting along with Rainbow, Pinkie, and Applejack’s husbands as well other servants like Flash Sentry..."

I'm guessing that you just made a spelling error, lol, but I just wanted to point out that Applejack does not have a bunch of husbands. Heh he heh:twilightsheepish:...right?! :twilightoops:

I wasn't sure if I should have added the 's behind Rainbow and Pinkie.

:twilightoops: That happened.

Now what is the count's game?:trixieshiftright: But nice 'Cinderella' reference.

That's cool and all, buuttt, Twilight has a plan, do you want to hear it?:pinkiehappy:

Oh Sweet Celestia, what have I unleashed?:facehoof:

You're funny, Foxhelm.:pinkiesmile:

CartoonNerd, can you help?

I like how we got a peak at the future, and the little twist near the end.

also love the name of the other child.
Screwball and Mothball!! yay!
