Chapter 17: The End Of The Day

Deathelocke and Pinkiepool ran from the thugs, successfully losing them with that distraction that made sense only to me and Pinkie Pie, and vague sense to Light. Anyway, they stopped running at the pathway to the cottage.

"Quick! Hide in Fluttershy's shed!" Pinkie exclaimed.

"Err... she doesn't have a shed... as least, as far as I've checked..." Even she agrees to the possibility of Flutters using a shed... good Celestia, what is wrong with us...

"Oh, darn. No hiding place, and no way to get back at Rainbow." Pinkie said sadly.


"What I meant to say was, I'm thinking about the wrong series and continuity."

"Again... what?"

"What I meant to say was, we have no hiding place."

"Right. Okay."

When they looked around, it was only then they both noticed they weren't followed. They both shrugged, continued to the cottage door, and went inside. Fluttershy was making yet another carrot recipe food for Angel. Happy I wasn't around when he wanted carrot sundaes or something. Last time that happened, I ended up walking into a cliché anime Accidentally-walking-in-when-a-mare-is-having-a-shower scene...

"Hey, Flutters, we're back." Said Light.

"Hi, Light... and so soon? You were gone only 5 minutes..." She replied. Well, it -was- a brief encounter. ...A close encounter of the freak kind... I get the feeling my mind is wandering a lot nowadays.

"Hey, Light, can I show ya something?" Pinkie enquired.

"Sure." Light turned to face Pinkie, and found she was holding a briefcase that looked familiar. Hold on... I know where I've seen that before. Light looked at it for a moment... Pinkie opened it. Light thought correctly... it was his party pony costume.

"If the party's getting shifted to happen tomorrow, I thought I should give this gift as soon as I can. Good times, huh?" Pinkie said.

Light smiled to himself. "Good times indeed. Although, I think it's missing something..."

"A hat?" Pinkie asked. How does she know everything... "Lucky guess." She continued. AUOFBAWIUBFAWIUFAWIOFHAWF "I'll make arrangements to find you a cowpony hat." She finished.

"That'd certainly make it better. Thanks, Pinks." And with that, he was hugged for whatever reason.

"No problem, Lighty-wighty! I'll be preparing the party tomorrow! Bring your best costume!" She replied, before letting go, and hopping off. I wonder if she hugs everypony who's thankful to her.

Fluttershy was finished making food for Angel, and so walked over to Light, and placed a kiss on his cheek, which made him blush slightly. "You okay?" She asked.

"I'm okay. Feeling nostalgic. Hope this debt thing blows over soon, though..." Not just for the benefit of safety, but for un-interrupted Flutter-cuddles.

"Me too..." Fluttershy said. Light felt this was the best time to discuss their relationship.

"So, Flutters... err... when's the best time we should tell your friends about the relationship? I was thinking after the day with Twilight." That just reminds me, I'm still to have that.

"I think that's a good idea..." She replied.

Light stared into her eyes. Eyes that could, in his opinion, pull him into another world with no return. And he'd be glad staying there. She truly was the most beautiful mare he'd met. And he really likes her mane. He's suddenly prompted to ask something his brain cells tell him to say without telling his brain... whatever that means.

"Date?" He blinked after realizing he'd just suggested a date. STUPID BRAIN, I SHOULD BE WAITING.

Fluttershy looked surprised for a moment, then smiled, "Sure, I-i'd like to." THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTELLIGENCE, BRAIN.

"Cool... err... how about after we tell your friends? I still don't like being watched." Not just by ducks, but the thugs as well.

"Okay." She replied, before shifting her eyes left and right, wrapping her forelegs around Light, then passionately kissing him. Light was surprised for a moment, then settled into it, doing his best to return it. Let the Flutter-cuddles begin. He wrapped his own forelegs around her, stroking her mane with a hoof, enjoying the moment. At least until somepony knocked on the door. Fluttershy 'eeped' at the sudden happening, Light fell out of her hooves, and, out of nerve, played dead on the floor, for five seconds, while Fluttershy looked at him worriedly and curiously. Light then got up, ran to the door, and opened it to see Twilight Sparkle.

"Oh, hello, Light. I have a few questions to ask." Nothing gives you the right to ask me a question after interrupting my Flutter-cuddles!

"Okay." He simply responded, and walked back in the cottage, sitting on a couch, motioning Fluttershy to walk over. She did so, and sat next to him on the couch, while Twilight sat on the couch opposite to them, levitating a notepad and a book with her magic.

"Alright... now... I've noticed two strange suited ponies, who have each been seen getting harassed by Pony Wiseau, which I doubt was possible, a hipster, and Pinkie Pie wearing a suit based on this superhero she likes, along with a stallion wearing a blue version of that costume, only decorated differently. Now, everypony who's heard of you are aware you know Pinkie so, they're starting to believe you know things about this. Could you care to explain?" Twilight asked.

Deadpony is not a superhero. He's an Anti-Hero. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE.

"I was all of those strange stallions. The suits are thugs who want 42,000,000,000,000 bits from me because I owe somepony in Las Pegasus. Party Pony stuff." He explained.

"Oh... sorry, I wasn't aware you were into organizing parties as well." Twilight replied.

"I have never organized one, not one of my preferences. I just attend them, and go with the flow."

"Never took you for that type of pony."

"I stopped being miserable some days ago, you know. By the way, did you hear, Pinkie's organizing a costume party for tomorrow. You attending?"

Twilight looked up from her notepad, and looked thoughtful for a moment. "You know what... yes, I think I will. Anyway, I think that's answered enough questions... despite this being the fewest amount of questions I've asked to find the meaning of something... I'll be going now, then."

"Okaybye." Light responded, while deepening his voice a bit. Twilight raised a brow at this, while Fluttershy giggled Lightly, causing Twilight to raise the other brow. Then she shrugged.

"Bye, Fluttershy, bye Light." She got off the couch, and walked out the door. Light looked outside the window. The sky was darkening. He yawned, as if to give him more reason to believe it had started to become darker.

"I'm sleepy... I think I'll call it a night." Light said, walking to the couch, until he noticed he was being dragged by Fluttershy.

"You know, you don't have to take the couch anymore. We can share the bed."

Oh, right. More Flutter-cuddles. Awesome.



Hi. Thanks for attending. This is the best I have.


I'm planning on introducing Lyra. And she's going to be obsessive about humans.

I will introduce Photo Finish very soon. I think you are goink to apprhoove of my decision.

I will have fixed an error where I called the previous chapters different days, when they all technically happened on the same day... I have no brain. If you didn't mind it, I will feel more stupid, and as punishment, have to find the funniest image I can find and present it to you.

In Deadpool news, I need a name for the Deadpool fanfic, since both Deadpool In Equestria and Deadpool Meets Equestria are taken. It's like a reluctant character from another franchise who isn't sure about being assimilated into the herd yet.

"He'll never find me in here. Unless he tries looking."

Have you seen him? ...Didn't think so... thank you for your time...
