The Fluttershark: elusive; yellow and pink; lots of teeth.

Also practices friendship. Underwater.

I knew going in that this was probably going to be adorable, but dang was that cute. Thumbs up!
:)

This is a keeper. Love it!

Cute. Was hoping for more attacks admittedly, but amusing regardless. :pinkiehappy:

:raritystarry: Spikey Wikey!
:moustache: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
:flutterrage: NOM NOM NOM NOM
:duck: Really Spikey you can do better then that
:moustache: blub blub blub
:facehoof: Spike you bubble from your snout not your other end:raritycry:

An absolutely adorable bit of fluff. Thank you for this!

Well that was absolutely adorable. :heart:

This is extremely adorable.

Flut-ter-shark do-do-dedodedo.

Oh noes! She got Rainbow Dash! And she was so young and beautiful!

I love Rarity's laid-back attitude towards the situation, compared to Dash's near panic.

Well, it was funny

The Fluttershark is the greatest apex predator on the planet. One should never feel save in the low waters on a sunny day.

This was very adorable. :twilightsmile:

Actually makes me think of another fic that operates on a loosely similar but plenty adorable concept...though it has slightly less "sharks" and a few more "submarines and boats." And Spike doing bad Communist Russia impressions. :rainbowlaugh: ---> "Twilight October"

Have to say, this is a rather amusing piece so far. Love the Affectionate Parody of "wildlife documentary style" narration.

On to the next chapter.

Again, really good job on this really funny AND cute chapter. Again, in addition to the Affectionate Parody of "wildlife documentary style" narration, the reactions to Fluttershy's "attack" was really enjoyable.

On to the final chapter.

Oh wait, has nobody done it yet? ‘Tis my chance! :yay:

*insert David Attenborough blurb here*

So darn cute. LOVED this short story overall. :-D Particularly loved the note about "taking a breath because of the force of the hugs"

Fluttershy: Err, candygram?

Pinkie: (accepts the candy) Why thank you, Fluttershy. (gets hugged, but doesn't mind because SHE can get some pretty forceful hugs too and, thus, knows how to take them)

(sorry. Couldn't resist a Lighter and Softer parody of the "Land Shark" sketch from Saturday Night Live).

Fluttershy: Ohh, look. Such a cute -

Pinkie: Baby shark! Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo! Baby Shark! Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo! Baby Shark! Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo! BABY SHARK!

Fluttershy: Well, yes, actually. Very appropriate use of that song in this case.

So silly, but funny.

Yep, that's Twilight, always documenting everything.

Only downside is we don't know who won the bet, Rainbow or Rarity?

(Author’s note: we did try asking nicely.)

:rainbowlaugh:

(Author’s note: no seriously, take a breath. That mare has a grip like a vice and sometimes forgets that the rest of us don’t usually have snorkels!)

The author's notes are the funniest parts of the story.

We're gonna need a bigger beach.

I hate you so much right now. ....stupid ear worm. :facehoof:

10191483
Yup. You learn quick. Shame the rest of the Mane 6 didn't quite get there that fast. ;)

10191615
Oh, now I want to see the pony Attenborough! :yay:

10191075
I dunno, I was there for the first run of Jaws 3-D IN THE THEATERS all those years ago. I think I'm still traumatized by that. :pinkiecrazy:

10191686
Why do you do this to me!? I hadn't even worried about that... UNTIL NOW!:twilightoops:

10191823
Twilight deals with personal trauma in her own way. She writes papers to scientific journals with snark.

This is the story we needed but didn't deserve.
Much <3

Why do you do this to me!? I hadn't even worried about [who won the bet]... UNTIL NOW!

Sequel hook, maybe? wait was that a fish pun

10191962
You're not going to bait me with that.

Shouldn't have taken the pink towel. And I second what others have said - Rarity's reaction to the entire affair is spot on and the story was adorable.

i wonder if all 6 have a unique animal perk now

10192139
If they do, I doubt you'll see them in this universe. But the idea is an intriguing one.

10192151
i mean like how fluttershy has shark tendencies what do the others have in the cute and cuddly arena (not counting flutterbat)

10192172
That is a good question. If you figure it out, write it up and share it. I'm looking forward to finding out. :twilightsmile:

10192173
if i have a idea your the first id tell im terrible at exicuting ideas well

10192175
Think of it as a good excuse to exercise your brain muscles. Write something down. Don't like it? Try again. Keep going until you find something you like. I mean, this is (published) story number four for me out of 5 years, so it's not a quick process, but it is a process and it's gotta start somewhere. Might as well start with a simple idea...

10192181
oh i just publish stuff i just take down stuff that gets annoyibg bad feedback

10192181
like not kidding i have persmission to write a sequal to rated ponystars why dont they want me and i was extreamly clear about it and somome still asked me if i did after e areas of showing i had it

This was hilarious and adorable.

This is great, adorable and awesome!

Huh, I was watching jaws yesterday and this story comes out.
