If I ever rip my readers' hearts to shreds and leave their emotional state in tatters, I do it out of love.


Fluttershy yearns for a family of her own but is too shy around stallions for her own good. When Pinkie Pie discovers that her friend has a crush on Big Macintosh, she makes it her personal mission to bring the two together, whether they like it or not!

Yay! We haven't had a new Fluttermac in FOREVER thank you!:yay:

Bookmarked. Will read and review later. Looking forward to it :)

Now why would you be so interested in that? *Looks at username* Ohhhhhhhhhh... :fluttershyouch::eeyup:

Anyway, I'll update this when I can. I have 5 fics ongoing at the moment and I'm trying to cycle their updates. This is actually the first fic idea I ever had, but I got distracted by a veritable avalanche of other ideas and only recently got around to working on this proper.

Apologies for not actually getting to the important bits yet, (as outlined in the description) but otherwise the first chapter would feel bloated compared to later ones. I wanted to have this fic in somewhat bite-sized chunks, simply because I think it fits better.

Cute idea but really not liking your PP interpretation. The idea that she's so oblivious that she makes the cakes unhappy and too tired to argue with her doesn't really fit with her. As well i'm not overly into shipping I think I'll give this one a pass. Hope it goes well either way:pinkiesmile:

That's fair enough. To be honest, for me, Pinkie Pie is a double-edged sword when trying to write as close to the canon as possible because her personality is probably the most varied of all the characters. Anyway, I tend to bend the rules of canon just a tad, simply because of how my crazy mind works. :pinkiecrazy:

Thanks for your kind words, even though you're not interested in the fic. :pinkiesmile:

2076857 *Nods* I can definitely agree writing Pinkie is a huge challenge and to be fair I'm not saying you did all that bad a job. it's just that interpretation bugs me.

And never a trouble, hopefully in future I can give kind words *and* be interested in the fic :pinkiehappy:


It's not often I get a follow from someone that isn't a fan of my fic! :rainbowwild:

I'll have to warn you to steer clear of most of my comedy fics then... They range anywhere from 'slightly silly' right up to 'mad as a flannel' and beyond... :pinkiecrazy:

You might like 'Legacy:TeoH', and my upcoming 'No Regrets' though. *shrugs* :applejackunsure:

I really like your Fluttershy .
I can totally see her act like that in the Show .

Do go on ^^

So Fluttershy uses the old "I have to wash my hare" excuse to get out pf the party. Classic. :rainbowwild:

amazing cant wait for chapter 3!



I imagined the pony in your avatar shouting this in Bag Mac's face. :rainbowlaugh:

2141352 Ha ha, yeah, I can totally imagine my oc doing that.


Nah, I think I'll just leave it as it is. :trollestia:

Just kidding! :rainbowwild:

"How about a tasty, red Macintosh?" That's so going on the wedding cake.

I acted the exact same way.... when I was in high school!!! Come on big guy, get it together!!!

Can you be any more dense, Mac!? I was like Sweetie Belle in the bushes.. OH COME ON! :unsuresweetie:

Looks interesting. Will read later.

And in the end, Mac will say that while he would love to be Fluttershy's VSSP, he can't act upon it precisely because she's one of the Knights of Harmony, i.e., one of the Champions of Equestria, i.e., a mare that is completely out of his reach....and of mostly any other stallion, too

This is a great and sweet story, definitly going to follow and like.:pinkiehappy:

This review is brought to you by the group Authors Helping Authors

Name: Pinkie the Matchmaker

Grammar score: 9/10

Pros: Very cute, Characters are not OOC, Believable love story of Fluttershy and Big Mac.

Cons: could really find and cons story wise, everything seems solid.

Notes: Okay I'm got start off by saying this is really cute and I love the pairing. I think you got Fluttershy and the rest of the characters down pat. I look forward to your next chapter.

I hope you liked your review if you could please review Gurardian of the Hearthfire that would be great.


Thank you for reviewing! I will get onto reading and reviewing yours within the next couple of days. Here's hoping you like the next chapter! :fluttershyouch: :pinkiehappy: :eeyup:

I like this story. It's cute and sweet, and I'm always happy to see Fluttershy being treated well in stories.

The grammar and spelling are excellent. The pacing of the story seems good, and the characters are 'characterized' well. The only thing I might have wanted to see more of while I was reading was a bit more 'show' and not so much 'tell', but overall you really seem to have a nice balance despite that feeling I had. So never mind that. ;)

Please keep going with this. I faved to follow, and I'm interested to see where this goes.

2191165 I've always felt that this is the in-universe reason why they could never be together (or why any of the mane six could never hook up). Like the elements have to make a pledge of celibacy or something to focus on their duties. Or there's a caste system or something. Either way it's a darn shame! :fluttercry:


I can't see any of the mane six getting hitched in the show for various reasons, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if Big Mac and Cheerilee ended up getting married near the end of the series. (Of course, that's not happening in this fic!) As for taking a vow of celibacy, do you honestly think Rarity would be capable of keeping her legs closed? Her entire reason for visiting the Gala was to bag the handsomest, wealthiest prince ever. :ajbemused:

Anyway, the next update should be here before the weekend. Apologies to all for the wait, but I've been really busy recently.

2225370 Hey, she can still flirt. :raritywink:

Maybe once the show jumps the shark they can start delving into story lines that go beyond normal friendship. Just wishful thinking of course. Now with Twilicorn, they wouldn't have to because now they have a fresh batch of potential friendship conflicts for season 4. (curses!)

Anyhoo, looking forward to the update. :pinkiehappy:

That Pegasus stallion had to chop him some wood.

Military School!? Ha! You cheeky bastard! Keep up the good work!

Operation: Fluttermac is go. I repeat, Operation: Fluttermac is go. Out.

"Will Twilight be there? No reason, no reason at all."
"Will Octavia be there? No reason, no reason at all."

I like the Fluttershy-Mac romance, and I'm looking forward to more chapters, but for some reason I find what you're doing with Twilight and Octavia to be pretty funny. Please keep that up.

No chance of this working. Big Mac will screw this up.

Digging it! Ready to see the next chapter. But very clever this chapter! Good work :pinkiehappy:

A plasterer's radio... musical...plaster..white..creamy.... :twilightoops:


It was either that, or trolling people by saying, "Up next, Chapter 6 - Applejack's Suicide!" but I don't think that would've been appropriate. :unsuresweetie: And for your information, that pegasus was merely sticking to his strict weight loss regime! (He lost 3 lbs that day)


Without spoiling too much, I will say that *CENSORED*
See? I told you I wouldn't spoil too much. :rainbowwild:


You like? :pinkiecrazy:

2238891 That must have been an intense "weight loss regiment" if he lost 3 lbs that day. I have an idea of what he'll look like afterwards:

Rarity is the ultimate tease.:raritywink:

Were you listening to me Mac? Or were you looking at the mare in the red dress?


I forgot how awesome The Matrix is. :pinkiehappy: Here's hoping MLP doesn't follow the same example of dropping in quality as soon as the main character achieves their destiny. :twilightblush:

I already have the next chapter planned, and unfortunately I can't make a reference to this scene. And is it just me, or are you obsessed with this fic? You've made quite a few comments even after you've read it... :rainbowwild:

Just noticed, actually, that the story gained 2 thumbs down pretty much straight after the latest update. I thought it was the best chapter so far! Stuff actually happened! :rainbowhuh:

2245697 Nah, I'm not obsessed. It's just fun to comment. That and make jokes and pop culture references.:raritywink::eeyup: I would definitely like it if I find a story that I can make a reference to The Blues Brothers. That's one of my favorite movies. That and see Big Mac dressed up like Rick Deckard from Blade Runner.


"Just had two mares walk in the diner, one of them askin' for a strand of white, toasted hay."


"And the other one askin' for two scootaloos."

"Vinyl! It's the blues sisters!"

"The blues sisters!?"


Never get tired of watching this scene:

2274325I'm glad you enjoyed it! Don't worry, the next chapter is in the works and should be here in about a week.
