    And the Leaves Shall Tell of Its Passing by StormDancer


    Fluttershy, the timid bearer of the Element of Kindness, is soft spoken, soft hearted, and... well.... Soft.

    She's easily frightened, terribly shy, and prone to hiding at the slightest provocation, yet, she lives only yards from a terrifying forest which is home to some of the most dangerous creatures in Equestria.

    Her friends don't understand it; they can't reconcile the confusing disparity between her actions and her choice to literally live on the knife's edge of the wild, unforgiving, primal forest.

    How can she not only live there, but thrive?

    There's a storm coming, and if you're very quiet, you might just find out.

Now it is Fluttershy's turn... and she doesn't think she's up to the task.

    The CMC agree with her there, but they have a plan to help her out, no matter how much unavoidable property damage occurs along the way.

    To Be Kind by brokenimage321

    All Things in Time by Zontan


    It's been a hundred years since Twilight was crowned. Most of her original friends are gone. Now, only Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy remain, each with a spark of something special keeping them past their time.

    What happens when an action hero finds a peaceful rest stop outside their story?


    Three-Quarters by SPark


    When Fluttershy was a filly, she wanted four things when she grew up: a nice home, a stallion by her side, a foal or two to make a family, and a place where all her animal friends could live and be happy. Now, with her animal sanctuary finally completed, she takes a quiet moment and considers some of her other goals.









    The Pines of Roam by Clarke Otterton

Prompted by a poster from more than fifty years ago, she begins reminiscing about Rarity, and the circumstances that led to her romantic feelings for the unicorn being never reciprocated the way she would have wanted them to be. Her remembrances slowly lead her to confrontation with a question that has lingered in her head since Rarity died--what becomes of a pony after death?


    Where All My Layers Can Become Reeds by OfTheIronwilled

    Tradecraft by Taialin


    Modern Equestrian society had the awful habit of making victims out of all too many good ponies. That was what happened when both law and underworld crime tried to simultaneously enforce their idea of "social good." Fluttershy was one pony stuck in the middle—a victim of an unscrupulous gang but whom authorities were unwilling to aid. Where could one turn when the virtues of honor and chivalry seemed dead?
