"Fluttershy, please you'll love living there? They wont miss you, they'll be fine!" Discord begged. Fluttershy had her back to him, her hooves crossed. They had argued for the last hour and Discord was losing his patience. He didn't want to deal with those pests that she called pets, especially that little rabbit who was anything but an 'Angel'.
"Discord I told you, unless my animals can live there too, I won't go to your castle. I've made up my mind and there's no way you can change it."
She turned towards him and gave him that glare that was supposed to intimidate him, but all it caused was his heart rate to increase.
"Now if you want me to marry you than my animals come with me or I don't go...so what will it be?" She narrowed her eyes at him. Celestia she was adorable! He couldn't take it, he grabbed his heart.
He let himself go limp and fell to the ground.
"Oh my goodness! Discord...are you...are you okay?" She rushed over to him and when she saw he was laughing she got mad.
"Discord! Don't scare…"
He reached out and kissed her pinning her beneath him. When he lifted his head, he sighed,
"Alright love, how can I say no to that face?" He gave her a quick kiss again.
"They can come too, but they stay in the garden...deal?"
She smiled nodding and kissed him…
Celestia, what wont I do for this mare…
*One month later, Canterlot*
It hadn't taken long for their wedding to be planned out. Between Rarity and Twilight all the arrangements fell into place with ease.
Discord stood up on all fours, mostly so he wasn't so tall, at the altar. His breathing was becoming very shallow, the longer he waited. He looked out all the ponies gathered for what had become the biggest event in Equestria.
Not only was it a former bearer of an Element, but she was marrying the Lord of Chaos.
Although he still went by that title, his magic was for the benefit of all now. He even offered his services for neighboring kingdoms if the need was great. However he had kept his former title...he smirked,
Lord of Benefits just didn't have the same ring as Lord of Chaos.
"Man is it almost time, I don't know how much longer I can stand this dress." Rainbow complained and was jabbed in the side by Rarity.
"I know how she feels." Discord muttered as he tugged on the collar of his tux.
He could feel the panic starting to seep into his heart. He swallowed and began looking for the best escape route.
The mare next to him must have read his mind for she stepped on his tail.
"Yow! Hey what was that for?"
He turned and glared at Twilight, she'd hesitated when he had asked her to be his best mare. Since she was the first to show support for the two of them and she had helped convince the others of their love, both Discord and Fluttershy had agreed she was perfect.
"Don't you dare...you are staying put until you finish getting married." She glared at him as he switched his tail to his other side away from her hooves.
"Well I was just thinking...maybe this isn't such a good idea...she doesn't deserve to be stuck with some pony like...yow!" He turned as Princess Luna lifted her hoof off his tail, he had wanted her to preside over the ceremony instead of Celestia, after she had kicked him in the…
Yeah, and got him to go back to Fluttershy. So they were having the ceremony outside in the gardens, under the full moon. Fluttershy had been really excited about this and had fully supported his wish.
"What is with you ponies? Don't you know my tail is very sensitive?"
Luna started to chuckle, then covered it with a stern look.
"Soon you'll be reminded of why this is a good idea."
"How?" He growled and then turned when he heard the music begin.
The three little fillies, the CMC, jumped down the aisle throwing rose petals as they went.
His ears perked up and a happy smile spread across his face as she started down the aisle behind them.
Fluttershy, had to be the most beautiful bride in the history of Equestria. She walked with her head held high, fireflies floating in the air around her as she walked towards her future husband, and her gown…
Thank you Rarity! He thought, he hadn't been allowed to see it until now.
It was white with gold roses stitched along the hem and the chest. It had a short train, no back and long flowing sleeves with gold vines stitched into the material. Her hair was tied up behind her head, it fell in curls and different gems sparkled through her beautiful locks, and a rose wreath rested on the top of her head like a crown.
When she reached Discord she winked and he felt as if he'd faint.
"Fillies and gentlecolts we are gathered here tonight to celebrate the joining of these two creatures as they make their love a binding union. Now the groom has some words he would like to say."
Fluttershy looked up at him shocked, he hadn't told her about this wanting it to be a surprise. He took both her hooves in his hands and took a deep, shaky breath.
"Fluttershy, I know that this wont be easy...but I can't think of anything I've ever wanted more in all my life. You mean more to me than Equestria ever did...I will never stop loving you and I'll do everything in my power to ensure your happiness from this day on, for all eternity...Fluttershy, I love you with all my heart, you have enchanted me completely mind, body and soul. Never will there be a love as strong as ours, and I plan to prove this everyday of our lives together."
Everypony was in tears at the end of his speech, even Rainbow had to quickly swipe away a tear. Fluttershy's smile radiated over the entire crowd as she let a few tears escape. Discord wiped them away and continued to smile at his beautiful bride as Luna continued with the ceremony.
"Fluttershy, do you take Discord to be your lawfully wedded husband, in sickness and in health, until death do you part?"
"Yes, now and forever..."
Luna turned to Discord.
"Discord, do you take Fluttershy to be your lawfully wedded wife, in sickness and in health, until death do you part?"
His chest puffed with pride as he looked into his true love's eyes.
"Now and forever…"
"Then by the power vested in me..."
She turned to Spike who was holding the rings, she used her magic to levitate the two matching gold bands, one hanging from a chain.
She placed the chain around Fluttershy's neck and the matching band on the middle finger of his lion paw.
"I now pronounce you husband and wife...you may kiss your bride."
Discord pulled Fluttershy to him and gave her a very tender kiss which caused the ponies in attendance to cheer and applaud.
Discord pulled away from his new wife, then he smirked at her and whispered in her ear.
"Now and forever my love…"
She blushed and kissed him on the cheek as she placed her hoof in his arm and they walked back down the aisle to the cheers behind them.
They shared their first dance together, it was the same dance as Nightmare Night. Fluttershy had said since it was the first dance they shared unmarried, she wanted it to be their first married, as well.
Then they cut the cake, he behaved himself when giving her a bite. Fluttershy on the other hand smeared frosting on his nose. As he was about to get his revenge she surprised him by laughing and licking it off, he nearly had a heart attack.
When she decided it was time to toss the bouquet, she winked at Rainbow Dash who stepped to the back of the group, before she turned and tossed it behind her.
She had been aiming for Rainbow but it landed on another unsuspecting victim.
It hit Applejack in the head then landed in her hooves, causing her to blush.
"So Applejack who's the lucky stallion?" Pinkie teased and every pony laughed.
Fluttershy looked up at her husband and got a wicked gleam in her eyes that instantly made his fur stand on end in excitement. She indicated for him to lean down, so he lowered his head and put his ear closer to her.
"Think they'll be mad if we leave the party early?" She whispered, his head shot back up and his grin widened.
"My dear I am the Lord of Chaos and you are my new, beautiful wife...anything your heart desires you will get." He pulled her fully against him and growled playfully at her.
"Especially when it's what I desire too."
Then he snapped his fingers and they disappeared without any pony noticing.
*Three months later*
"Happy Birthday to you!" All her friends and Discord finished singing as Fluttershy blew out the candles on the birthday cake Pinkie had brought to their home.
"Alright now let's party!" Pinkie shouted as she put a record on and began to dance.
Fluttershy laughed and then shivered as she felt her husband curl around her, his touch still sent a fire racing through her.
"So my dear, what did you wish for?" He whispered in her ear. She smiled up at him, but shook her head.
"Nope...you know the rules I can't tell you or it wont come true…"
He pouted, it was so cute when he did, she laughed and kissed his cheek.
"Oh come on darling, you know that rules don't apply to me...now why don't you tell me so I can give you what you want?"
She just shook her head and tried to ignore him, however he wasn't giving up easy.
He started using the tuft of his fur to tickle her side. She began to giggle,
"When have I ever played fair to get what I want?" He smirked and nuzzled the spot behind her ear with his snout causing her to shiver again. They had quickly learned each others soft spots in their three months of marriage.
Oh, he really didn't play fair…
"Darling the torture will end if you just tell me what you wished for…"
She hesitated, she wasn't really superstitious about the wish, but she wasn't sure how he would react to what she wanted. She hid behind her mane and whispered,
"Discord...I don't know if you...if you'll want to…"
He pulled back then his expression softened and he used his tail to lift her chin making her look at him again.
"You can ask for anything my dear...I told you on our wedding day that I would do anything to ensure your happiness and I meant it." He kissed her softly and she sighed,
Well why not? Although I still don't think he'll like it…
She pulled away and nuzzled her husband under his chin, she had learned that the spot seemed to instantly calm him.
Then she closed her eyes and told him what her heart desired most.
"I want a foal…"
He pulled back and gaped down at her,
She nodded and looked away from him, not sure how he would react now that he knew.
He scooped her into his arms and then dipped her into a passionate kiss. She wrapped her hooves around his neck and returned his kiss.
"Ewww! Get a room you two!" Rainbow shouted as the others laughed, she had come to fully support the union when she saw how happy her best friend was with her new husband.
Discord grinned at them then turned to his wife.
"You know Rainbow you're right...we're sorry to cut the party short, but my new wife is suddenly feeling very tired and I need to put her to bed…"
Then he leaned in and whispered into her ear,
"And then we can get started on your birthday wish…" She shivered again, but met her husband's gleaming eyes and gave him the wicked, little grin she knew drove him crazy.
Sure enough his eyes widened and his breathing quickened.
"Thanks for coming over." He snapped his fingers and the five mares plus Spike teleported back to Ponyville, before they could respond. Fluttershy giggled imagining the conversation her friends were having now.
"Now where were we? Oh yes…"
Discord grinned and dipped his beautiful wife again in another passionate kiss.
