Baby don’t hurt me.

Don’t hurt me no more.

That is exactly what crossed my mind when this came up in my feed.

Ah, a fellow of culture I see!

The rest of the ceremony proceeded as usual, with the three birds speaking their vows before Spike brought the rings up for Cadance to distribute.

Is that meant to be lovebirds?

I literally only know that song from ProtonJon's playthrough of "Don't Eat the Mushroom".

While normally poly stories aren't my cup of tea, this was a treat to read. The premise, having each pony talk about what they like in their relationship, was simple but really well executed. Everyone felt in-character and believable despite the relatively short chapters, Cadence's perspective in the end was a nice touch, and the stunt in the end sounds exactly like the kinda thing Rainbow would do at her wedding.
TLDR, good story. Have a Derpy:derpytongue2:

Ah, yes. The reason I clicked on the story.

This was such a nice read! They're so considerate of eachother;;; :fluttercry::heart: /pos


First of all, it has been ages since I have ever noticed a story for the first time, clicked on it, and read it all beginning to end right there in that moment the way I just have with this one. 99.9% of the time, no matter how good a story looks, I will save it to come back and read later, in pieces, because I am never in a reading mood and usually the first few sentences make me think I'll have to be in a reading mood to enjoy the story. But you, my dear treasured writer, made this story very easy to fly through and thoroughly enjoy without missing a beat. And I only partially credit that to my positive bias for the premise.

AND THE STORY???? I have been loosely hunting this site for a decent polyamorous fic for a while now and have continuously found them to be too sexualized, too sappy, or too short. A lot of the times the writer will just let the polyamorous relationship be the whole selling point of the fic and won't do much to justify why it works with those characters or explore it in any meaningful way in what they write. So to be able to find and enjoy a poly fic that is THIS GOOD!? I am so freaking overjoyed.

Not only did you completely 100% explore the relationship and how all three characters mesh well together in a beautiful and touching way, but you also managed to do it without it ever being too sappy or too overly idealized. Instead of making polyamorous love seem like a bazar or overly unique thing, you emphasized all of the components that go into any loving relationship whether it be poly or monogamous. The whole fic is very grounded and genuine and it's something that anyone would be able to relate to. And at the same time, you still perfectly utilized the three-way relationship by switching perspectives and exploring the distinctly unique ways that each character understands and engages with love, which is just my absolute favorite thing about nonmonogamy: being able to engage with all those different perspectives in the same loving relationship. And it's just AAHHH I love this so much.

And that is to say nothing of the beauty in the specific perspectives that you wrote of. I can definitely say that I relate the most with Rainbow and I am so freaking glad to hear that idea that love is freedom rather than a restriction come from somewhere besides me and Rainbow is the absolute perfect choice of a character to have that point of view. Genius. Beautiful. C'est magnifique! And don't get me started on the other characters who's revelations about love are equally heartwarming and amazing.

I could literally rant about this all day, but I'll spare you. Just, the whole thing is amazing. So freaking sweet. Love this. Love you. Have a favorite, and a 52nd upvote. This fic truly deserves all the attention it can get.
