FlutterMac Part 1: Caught InsideIt was cool for a summer day at Sweet Apple Acres. Big Macintosh stopped his plowing for a moment to look up. A slow grin spread across his normal blank face as he watched the white fluffy clouds lazily roll across the sky. "Maybe Miss. Dash can do her job right every now an' again." He thought as he set his eyes forward and started pulling the plow once more.FlutterMac Part 1: Caught Inside10 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

When Big Macintosh had arrived home the next morning Applejack had indeed been upset with him. "Big Macintosh Apple!! What the day do you think you're doin' showin up at the farm in tha mornin' when we was expectin' ya home last night?!" Applejack had said as she stormed up to him.

FlutterMac Part 3: First Date Nerves Fluttershy paced the floor of Carousel Boutiques nervously, waiting for Big Macintosh to arrive. "Did he change his mind? What time is it? Oh what are we going to do? I've never been on a date before; what if I mess up?" Rarity watched as her friend walked around her store repeatedly, slightly amused by her nervous movements. "Relax darling you're going to be fine." she told her worrisome friend "Just try and remember everything that I told you."FlutterMac Part 3: First Date Nerves9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Well maybe if you brushed your mane a little more often you wouldn't have so many knots." Fluttershy teased as she lightly tapped his head with her brush.
"There ain't no need to when applebuckin'." he grumbled as she resumed straightening out his unruly mane.
Once again it was Nightmare Night in Ponyville, not Fluttershy's favorite night of the year. It had always seemed so dark and scary to her even though she knew that the costumes and special effects were fake. They had spent the better part of the evening together at Fluttershy's cottage preparing for the night. The two had
FlutterMac Part 7: A Broken Hearts and Hooves Day The bustling market street was noisy that day, not that the center of Ponyville wasn’t always loud with the sounds of various mares and stallions haggling over prices for their wares, but today it just seemed like everypony was trying to yell over each other. Big Macintosh didn’t mind though. If being bombarded with a little noise was the only price he had to pay to spend this afternoon with Fluttershy, he would gladly pay it. With winter slowly coming to an end, the various vendors of Ponyville were trying to sell off the last of their wares before the new produce was ripe for the coin making.

Appleseed sits on her dads back, her hooves wrapped around his neck, not even reaching half way around. She looks around curiously at the white walls and various medical ponies bustling around. She rests her chin on her dads yoke, slowly blinking her big green eyes.
"Daddy, Are we in a hospital?" Her father chuckles slightly and smiles back at her.
She hops off his back gently and flies next to him, pushing her slightly curly, and very messy, orange mane out of her eyes. She continues to glance around curious, and somewhat confused.

The sun began its slow descent as day turned to dusk on yet another day of hard work on Sweet Apple Acres. Macintosh trudged through the orchards filling a few more a barrels before turning in for the night. It wasn't that the trees were any more stubborn with their crop or that he lacked the strength to buck, far from it he just lacked the strength to go on. A part of his family had left him. It couldn't have been a month since his little un-sister left. He felt bitter and angry. Said she wanted 'a change in scenery. To live the sophisticated life in Manehatten.'

The glow of a summer evening bloomed before Fluttershy's eyes as her bird choir struck up an effortless melody and the sweet sigh of a breeze drifted across the highest hill of Sweet Apple Acres. Fluttershy inhaled the scent of ripened apples that danced on the wind and let her jade eyes soak in the twilit scene before she turned them to the crimson stallion who sat beside her. She felt her cheeks flush as his apple green eyes gazed into hers; in them she could see all of her own contentment and sincerity. She peered deeper and also saw the uncertainty and fears which for so long had kept them from one another, and though these trepidations r
Fluttering Hearts Chapter 1 Fall is a special time of the year in Ponyville; the season of change as some ponies referred to it. Although most noticeably the change they're referring to would be the physical change of color that the leaves on the trees exhibit, there are also some more subtle, but nonetheless significant changes that occur throughout ponies lives this time of year. The peak of this season is marked by the annual Running of the Leaves competition, in which several ponies compete in a marathon designed to shake the leaves from the trees as a result of the force of everypony trampling the grounds at once as they run.

The summer sun was high in the sky above Ponyville. All the town's ponies were out and about shopping and talking and generally enjoying the day without a care in the world, knowing down in their hearts that despite their proximity to the Everfree Forest that they had a mighty protector watching over them from the shadows of dark alleyways or as it might be the cold laboratory of Ponville's resident egghead.

The snow crunched beneath their hooves as they slowly made their way around the lake. Light grey clouds hid direct sunlight from the earth and gave the landscape a flat appearance. A heavy wind blew across the lake, making the already frost air frigid. Fluttershy was tightly bundled up to protect herself from the cold. With two thick coats, a long woolen scarf wrapped tightly around her neck and rubber snow bo
Fluttering Hearts Chapter 2 A cool wind rushed through the trees on a warm day at Sweet Apple Acres. There Big Macintosh could be found lying on his stomach, lazily chewing a few apples of his namesake, taking in the scenery around him. He seldom took the time to admire the land he called his home, since he was often working so hard. It was nice to gaze at the scenery for a moment while his mind dwelt on other matters. It had been two days since his night with Fluttershy. He'd had so much fun with her that night, and he'd hoped she did too.

"Consarnit," Macintosh muttered to himself, trying for the fifth time to fashion the green silk tie around his collar. Though he loved being an earth pony and the special bond he had with plants, there were some moments when he thought he might not mind being a unicorn. A low chuckle came from behind him.

Fluttering Hearts Chapter 4 Clop Lite version There are many ways for a pony to spend a lazy afternoon: Catching up on their stories, grabbing a meal at a café, or spending time with their closest friends. However, when enjoying each other's company, some ponies prefer to be pampered to a certain degree in the process. For those in particular, Ponyville has one of the most delightful spas. Owned and run by twin sisters Aloe and Lotus, the center takes great pride in providing all sorts of refining services, from typical massages and steam rooms to exquisite mud baths and bathing seaweed wraps.

Fluttershy's hooves were still shaking slightly as she and Big Macintosh exited the shop in which they had found refuge; fortunately, it had turned out to be a small boutique, and the owner graciously restyled Fluttershy's mane after witnessing the mob of raving ponies attempt to tear her to pieces in the street. After a quick brush through and several quality minutes with a curling iron, her mane now fell in soft curls, and the peony that Big Mac had picked for her (remarkably unscathed from the assault) was tucked behind her ear. Her dress was completely ruined, but with Mac by her side Fluttershy still felt like the most beautiful mare in

First, the sun had refused to be obscured by the clouds of the weather patrol, causing almost everything on their farm to dry out and wither. Then, a dry brush fire had caught in the orchard and they had barely managed to save half of their trees. And to finish everything off, a malfunction in the weathe
