In Matrimony by ive-moved-bitches In Matrimony by ive-moved-bitches
"And after that fateful birthday, the young dragon Spike never again turned to greed. Instead, the magic that aged him was a different magic- a pure magic from before the beginning of time. It was his undying love for a unicorn mare. And thus he grew not uncontrollably or into a horrible beast, but was granted the ability to choose what he wanted to be. And he chose to be with her."

As those last words escaped the Princess's mouth, the crowd erupted in cheers. The newlywed couple embraced, staring deep into each other's eye. Not far away stood the other newlyweds, a certain pair of Wonderbolt mares. Spike's mother-figure, Twilight Sparkle, blushed as a pink party pony inched towards her. A heavily pregnant Applejack nuzzled her husband. Famous singer Sweetie Belle watched in amusement as a scholarly unicorn stallion courted her best friend, Apple Bloom. And behind Sweetie stood her proud coltfriend, Leeroy. Off to the side, a minty mare played a happy tune on her lyre beside a grey mare with a cello. It had been years since their adventures had ceased, but their bonds remained as strong as ever. And, perhaps, they'd finally found their happy ending.

I just love how you include everypony, especially ones that are sort of hidden behind the main ones. I also like how you paired ponies/dragons with ones that others might not, like Applejack and Soarin' (I like them together, too! :)). But I'm just wondering..

Where's Fluttershy? :-? (Confused) :-? (Confused) :-? (Confused)

"And Fluttershy stayed at home since she doesn't want to go to a party where there is a big dragon, since she doesn't like GROWN (and probably big) dragons."

Good job. :D

This is a really cute picture! I'm considering reading the story because of Twilight and Pinkie in the background there, as I'm not too big on Sparity... Hm... 

Regardless, this is amazing! I loved all the details and especially Spike's expression. Lovely job. :)

Way to go Rarity, because there is no love stronger then dragon love. Once you earn a dragon's love and they earn yours in return, they will protect you 'till the day you die.

I saw a ghost on the stairs,
And sheets on the tables and chairs.
The silverware swam with the sharks in the sink,
Even so, I don't know what to think.

I've been longing for,
Daisies to push through the floor.
And I wish plant life would grow all around me,
So I won't feel dead anymore,
So I won't feel dead anymore.

I saw a bear in the den,
Reading my textbooks again.
Bats float like traffic as they poured from the attic,
Heaven knows, I could really use a friend!

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest,
Where trees keep the tempo and they sway in time!
A quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus,
If I were to pluck on your heartstrings, would you strum on mine?

Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da da da!

I've been longing for,
(I've been longing for,)
Daisies to push through the floor!
(I've never really felt like this before!)
And I wish plant life would grow all around me,
So I won't feel dead anymore,
So I won't feel dead anymore.

Your spirit is sweet, so pull off your sheet,
And give me a ghost of a smile!
Show me your teeth, 'cause you're a teddy beneath,
So just grin and bear it a while,
Just grin and bear it a while!

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest,
Where trees keep the tempo and they sway in time!
A quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus,
If I were to pluck on your heartstrings, would you strum on mine?


Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da,
(I thought that was all about loving at all,)
Da da da, da da da,
Da da da, da da da,
(New leaf turns over, I'm willing to fall!)
Da da da, da da da da da!

Tonight I'm busting out,
Of this old haunted house,
'Cause I'm sick of waiting for,
All those spiderwebs to grow all around me,
'Cause I don't feel dead anymore--
And I'm not afraid anymore!

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest,
Where trees keep the tempo and they sway in time!
A quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus,
If I were to pluck on your heartstrings, would you strum on mine?

If I were to pluck on your heartstrings, would you strum on mine?
