Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 45


“Watch me! Dox! Dox watch.” Snafu was yelling. “Come on! Watch me!”

Paradox sat on the couch holding Selene she was sniffling and crying lightly. “Snafu, please I’m busy with Selene.”

“But Dox. I’m tryin’ to cheer you and Selene up.” Snafu landed next to his older brother and looked at his niece. The colt tilted his head. “What’s she crying for?”snafu

Paradox looked at his brother, he was just a young colt had just started to fly, he was the same age as Rune Eclipse, but she was way more advanced in magic and flight talent. “She teething.” He answered as he tried to use some healing magic on her.

“Teasing?” He tilted his head the other way.

“No… You see… her teeth are coming in. It hurts her.” Paradox mumbled. “Why did mom drop you off here?”

“I wanted to visit you and Silver.” Snafu said haltingly.

Paradox gave him a look. “Uh huh… I don’t believe you.”

“Dad wanted to tell you he’s sorry?” Snafu grinned.

Paradox shook his head. “If he’s sorry he should apologize to my face.”

Snafu smiled. “Want me to tell dad that?”

Paradox rocked Selene in his arms, his healing magic was able to make her fall asleep. He shook his head. “No. I’ll talk to him later. Eventually.”

“Why are you mad at dad?” He asked as he stretched his gossamer wings. The wings resembled the butterfly wings on Fluttershy’s cutie mark.

Paradox looked at his brother with a slight frown. “He knows why I’m mad, you don’t need to be a part of it.” He stood up and carried Selene upstairs, Snafu followed him. Paradox went into the nursery. Solana was sleeping soundly as Paradox placed Selene next to her in the crib. He turned to his brother. “Come on.”

Snafu walked out if the nursery with his brother. Paradox closed the door gently and started downstairs. Snafu looked at the door then followed his brother. “They sleep a lot.”

“They’re just starting to get teeth, and they are learning to talk. A full day makes them sleepy so they need a nap.” Paradox explained.

“Do I need a nap?” Snafu asked.

“If only I was that lucky.” He muttered. “No Snafu, you’re old enough to make that decision on your own.” Paradox said for his brother to hear.

Snafu yawned and looked at his brother guiltily. “I’m not tired.”

“Yeah. I don’t believe you. The couch is unoccupied go take a nap, I have to start a new painting.”

Snafu grinned. “I can help!”

Paradox frowned. “I don’t need help painting. It’s what I do… please Snafu go take a nap, I can tell you’re tired.”

His brother made a face. “But Dox… I’m not sleepy.” He yawned again.

“Hmm yeah. You’re not sleepy… when Silver gets home. I’ll take you back to mom and dads.”

Snafu didn’t say anything as he watched his brother pick up a paint brush.

Paradox walked to the canvas that he had placed on an easel earlier in the day. He looked at the blank white surface and stared at it.

Snafu blinked, he looked at his brother then at the canvas. He looked back and forth again then suddenly yawned. “I’m going to take a nap.” He announced as he flew into the living room and landed on the couch.

Paradox grinned to himself as he put the brush into the first color. “That’s what I thought…” He had put a mild sleep spell on his brother and was wondering when it was going to kick in.

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 42


Silver, Paradox and the twins were sitting at the restaurant waiting. They smiled when Fluttershy walked in with Rainbow Dash.

“Oh my goodness.” Fluttershy gasped when she saw the girls in their dresses.

“Kind of girly aren’t they?” Rainbow Dash asked with an adoring smile in her face. “Who am I kidding? They look so adorable.”

Both grandmothers fawned over the twins. Paradox and Silver smiled at one another. “So, how’s everything going?” Paradox asked.

Fluttershy looked up. “Everything is fine.” She had Solana in her arms as she flew over and sat down next to him.

“Yeah. We fought off a monster the other day.” Rainbow Dash replied as she carried Selene over.

“You did mostly.” Fluttershy whispered. “Maybe we shouldn’t talk about violence around the girls?” Solana was snuggling up against Fluttershy’s chest.

“Fluttershy, you worry too much. These girls will get to experience a lot. Look they even have claws to protect themselves.” Rainbow said as Selene pet her grandmother’s rainbow colored mane with her paw.

Silver looked around. “Where’s Snafu?”

“Discord has him today.” Fluttershy answered. “He thinks Doxy is still mad at him.”

Paradox frowned and looked away. “Yeah… I am, and I think I know why, but I also don’t know.”

Silver bit her bottom lip and let out a sigh. “I thought I knew but it fled from my memory.”

“Whatever it is, can’t be that important.” Rainbow Dash smiled as she gave Selene a kiss. “Isn’t that right? Oh no! I’m gonna kiss your nose.”

Selene squealed and giggled as Rainbow Dash kissed her nose she looked over at Silver. “Mama. Mama!”

“Selene it’s alright let your grandmother hold you.” Silver smiled.

“Can you really trust dad with Snafu? He’s a little immature and Snafu is so young too.” Paradox muttered.

Silver snickered. “Doxy…”

Fluttershy looked at her son in shock. “Dox, your father took you out all the time. Why are you acting like this?”

Paradox frowned. “Okay mom, I’m going to ask you something…”

Fluttershy nodded as she sighed. “Alright, ask.”

“Who is Rune Eclipse?”

Fluttershy smiled. “My granddaughter.”

Paradox nodded. “Who is her father?”

“That is easy. It’s Zero. My son in law.”

He nodded at his mother. “Who is Rune’s mother?”

Fluttershy blinked several times. “I… um I know this. It’s right on the tip of my tongue.” She flapped her wings in frustration. She looked over at Rainbow Dash she just shrugged.

Paradox growled and put his arms up. “That is the reason why I’m mad at dad. He altered our memories. Only Zero knows that his wife is missing. Mom doesn’t even believe she’s real.”

Fluttershy squeaked. “Rune is my foal?” She then shook her head. “No… She’s Scarlet Grace’s.”

“No mom. Remember I’m a twin.”

Fluttershy’s eyes filled up suddenly with tears. “Doxy. You know your twin is dead. Why do you keep insisting she’s alive?”

Paradox blinked and placed his paw on his chest. “I feel it in here. Mom now that we are talking about it. I am remembering a little. She was pushed into something. What was her name mom? What was it? I know it. I need to know if you remember it too.”

“Dox, please. I’m not really in the mood to play these games. I want to spend time with these little jewels.” She whispered as she nuzzled Solana.

Solana gently placed her paws on Fluttershy’s cheeks and looked at the tears that were falling from her grandmother’s eyes. “Grrma. No…” She purred out softly. She looked over at her father. “Daa. No…”

Paradox sighed. “Fine.” He put his paw up to his face and walked away from them for a moment.

Silver felt a bit out of place suddenly as she sat next to her mom. “Hey mom, do you remember?”

Rainbow Dash nodded. “Of course. Paradox’s sister was named LillyRose. You and her were friends long before you and Paradox got along. I vaguely remember a fight where I believe that LillyRose got killed or something and Discord erased Fluttershy’s memory to keep her from becoming an emotional wreck.” She then blinked. “I can hardly remember that fight though. I know that Dox had been angry with his father ever since.”

Silver blinked. “I think someone else erased all of our memories. I can hardly remember it myself.”

“Doxy come back and relax.” Fluttershy called her son back. “Please?”

Paradox walked back, his eyes were red with tears. “She’s still alive mom. I know it… I do.”

Silver smiled. “We’ll figure it out later. Let’s eat and talk about something different.” She started to set up the high chairs. Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash placed the foals in the chairs.

Paradox sat down and crossed his arms as he looked away from his mom. “Yeah, we’ll talk about something else.” A tear ran down his cheek as he let in a deep breath.

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 8


Fluttershy was sitting in the kitchen patting Snafu on the back after she had fed him.FSnSnafu-20151112_225128

Silver walked in and saw her. “How are you this morning?” She asked.

Fluttershy looked at her daughter-in-law and started to blush. “Oh um… I’m ok.” She cradled Snafu and gave a shy smile. “I hope you slept alright.”

“The bed was kind of small but Doxy and I made it work.” She smiled and walked to the refrigerator. “I can make breakfast.”

“Are you sure? I was just getting Snafu fed before I made breakfast.”

“Not a problem.” Silver said as she started to get things out. “I’ll make my famous crepes with grapple-berries.”

“Sounds delicious.” Paradox said as he walked in. He saw his mom holding his brother and smiled. “Mom!” He went over and gave them both a hug.

“Good morning Dox.” Fluttershy whispered.

“It is a good morning, where is dad?” He asked as he took his brother from her.

“He’s probably still in bed.” She said as she sat back down on the chair.

Paradox held his brother and made faces at him. Snafu just giggled, flapped his gossamer wings and cooed. “I guess I’ll wait for him to get up then.”

Fluttershy stared at her son for a long moment when she finally spoke up. “Dox?”

He looked at her. “Yes?”

“I can’t help but notice that… um you have fangs now.” She said softly. “I don’t remember you having fangs like that.”

“It was pretty late last night when Silver and I got in here wasn’t it? You were already in bed.” He said. “Dad didn’t want to bother you I guess.”

She started to nod as she blushed. “Yes but… I woke up and heard… Oh never mind.” She put her hooves on her cheeks and turned around. “I am glad you and Silver are here. I miss seeing you.”

Silver giggled as she flipped the crepe and started to mix up some grapple-berries in a saucepan. “Sorry if Doxy and I kept you awake.”

The door opened to the kitchen as Discord walked in. He stopped in mid-step and looked at every pony in the room looking at him. “Okay… What did I do wrong?”

Paradox grinned. “Dad.” He gave Snafu back to Fluttershy. “I need to ask you something.”

“Okay, but I rather eat what is smelling really good right now.” He said as she looked at Silver cooking breakfast.

“It won’t take long Dad! Plus breakfast isn’t done yet.” He walked out of the kitchen hoping that Discord would follow him.

Discord sighed and looked at Fluttershy, she shrugged and he slumped as he followed his son back out of the kitchen. “What is it son?”

Paradox sat on the couch and sighed. “I got to ask you something. You know I’m not very good at magic and I am constantly learning. I just need to ask you something important and I don’t know how to word it.”

Discord’s eye brow went up as he sat down in the chair across from his son. “Ok, try to explain it to me.”

Paradox made a slight face he still had a difficult time with adjusting to the fangs. “Last night while I was um… petting Silver’s stomach… I kept getting shocked and…” He stopped talking when his father’s eyes widened.

Discord grinned as he got a normal face again. “Please… Continue.”

“Anyway… I thought maybe if I pet her in a different place I’d get shocked, but I only got this weird shock when I touched her stomach and…” He noticed his father’s eyes had widened again. “Dad you know what it means…”

Discord gave a huge sigh and he started to shake his head. “Yes… I know what it means.” He closed his mouth and started to suddenly snicker.

Paradox blinked. “What does it mean? You have to tell me!”

“Fluttershy!” Discord yelled.

“Dad… Why are you calling mom in here for?” Paradox said harshly.

Fluttershy flew into the room quickly thinking something was wrong. “What is it?” She was holding Snafu and she slowly landed when she saw that Discord was starting to laugh. “Discord? Why did you yell for me?”

“This is just something you need to know.” Discord motioned for his wife to come closer to him. She trotted over and he leaned into her and whispered into her ear.

Fluttershy’s eyes widened. “Oh! Oh my goodness!” She started to blush.

“Mom!” Paradox said in a panic as she looked at him. “What does it mean Dad?” He looked to his father.

“You have nothing to worry about Paradox.” Discord said as he put his finger on Fluttershy’s lips just as she was going to say something. “I’ll tell him a few minutes Fluttershy my love. I like watching him worry.”

“Don’t be mean to your son.” Fluttershy said. “Tell him or I will go in there and tell Silver.” She frowned.

“One of you two tell me!” Paradox shouted.

Discord let out a sigh. “Okay.” He got up and picked Fluttershy up.

She let out a giggle as she held Snafu close to her chest. “Discord! No… let me down.”

He placed his paw on her tummy and started to rub it. “This is your Mom’s stomach.” Discord said to Paradox.

“Yeah Dad… I know that.” Paradox shook his head. “I don’t see what that has to do with me and Silver.

“Whenever your mom had become pregnant I knew it because I felt her belly and it gave shocks over my paw pads. The stronger the shocks the healthier the fetus.” He kissed Fluttershy as she blushed. “No shocks dear.” He said to her as he slowly put her back down on the floor.

Paradox stared at his father and his eye twitched slightly.shockdox
“Oh… I think I broke him Fluttershy.” Discord said as he saw the blank look on Paradox’s face.

Fluttershy looked at her son. “Dox? Are you alright?” She put her hoof in front of his face.

Paradox blinked but still didn’t say anything. His mind was racing, he remembered the shocks on his paw several times last night. Slowly he closed his mouth and swallowed.

“You can handle it.” Discord said. “Congrats Dox.” He pat him on the back.

“Uh… Dad are you sure about that?” He finally said.

“Oh definitely. You’re going to be a father. So when are you going to tell your wife?”

“I… Don’t know.” He shut his mouth tightly.

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapters 124


Paradox was holding Silver as they appeared just outside the ballroom. The guards looked at them and then they saluted them. “Lord Paradox, Lieutenant Silver Dash.”

Silver started to giggle as Paradox set her down. “At ease, geez guys this is my wedding day, relax a little bit.”

“We cannot sir, you and Paradox’s safety is paramount to anything else.” One guard said.

“You have permission to go eat cake.” Silver smiled.

Paradox was snickering. “They called you sir.”

She shook her head. “They’re not used to me yet. Next one calls me sir I’ll box their ears. She looked at the one that called her a sir.”

The one that called Silver “sir” gulped. “Sorry ma’am.”

“Is any pony going to announce us or?” Paradox asked.

The other guard’s eyes widened. “Oh yes!” He opened the door and went in.

Paradox looked at Silver and smiled. He was already starting to get excited again and bit his lower lip.

“Mr. and Mrs. Paradox.” A pony announced inside.

Silver started to walk in, but Paradox picked her up and carried her in. “I love to carry you.”

The ballroom was full of cheers and congratulations as they both went to the table. Paradox put her on the floor and pulled the chair out for her. She graciously sat down and smiled as he sat next to her.

“Oh my! I thought you’d forgotten to come here and ditched us!” Sprinkle fretted over Silver.

“I wanted to.” Paradox said. “Silver wouldn’t let me.”

Sprinkle gasped. “Ah, Dox! That would’ve been terribly mean.”

He grinned. “Yeah. I know.” He was fidgeting in his seat and leaned over to Silver and whispered in her ear.

Silver’s eyes widened as her face turned red. “Doxy…”

He grinned as he got the reaction he wanted. “Heh.”

Fluttershy walked over. “Paradox.”

He sat up and smiled. “Hi mom.”

“What took you and Silver so long to get here? The castle isn’t that big.” She asked as she held Snafu.

“I know, but just following some advice dad gave me.” He replied.

Fluttershy frowned. “Oh, well I’ll have to give him a stern talking to.”

Paradox reached out. “Let me hold my brother.”

She smiled as she passed Snafu over to Paradox. “He’s wide awake now, but being quiet.”

“Hey bro. Sup?” Paradox said as he held his brother. He didn’t notice Silver looking at him as he held the foal.

“Doxy, you’d make a good daddy.” Silver blushed.

Paradox looked up. “Um… nope. Just a good older brother.” He gave his brother a kiss and held him up to show him to Silver. “That is your sister in law. She’s my wife. She’s super sexy hot.”

The foal giggled and blinked at Silver. Silver smiled as she reached out and took Snafu from Paradox. “Hey little brother.” She gave him a little kiss on the muzzle. She then handed the foal back to Fluttershy. “Back to mommy.”

Fluttershy smiled to herself as she took Snafu back. She wanted to put the thought in one of their heads to having a baby. Discord appeared next to her. “What are you doing?”

She giggled at him. “Nothing.”

Discord shook his head. “Fluttershy, we already have grandchildren…”

“I know but…” She whispered.

Discord sighed at his wife. “Run along.” He patted her flank she giggled as she carried Snafu back to her seat.

Discord sighed as he watched her. “We have enough grandchildren…” He muttered then looked at Paradox and Silver. “Right?”

Paradox was nodding fast. Silver just looked at her father in law with big eyes. “I… um… guess so?”

Discord nodded as he walked away. Paradox looked at Silver. “Are you alright?”aftre

“Of course. Today is my day. I got to marry you and that makes me the happiest mare in the world. You’re my dream come true.” She was tearing up as she said it.

He watched as his bride was crying he didn’t know what to do. “Silver, um… don’t cry. D-Did I do something wrong?”

She wiped her tears. “No, I’m just so happy!” She started to bawl and every pony stopped and looked at them.

Rainbow Dash flew over to the table faster than any pony else. “Paradox! What did you do to Silver?”

Paradox put his paws up. “I didn’t do it! Don’t make me fly laps.” He gasped.

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 113 -114


Fluttershy had her grandchildren in a baby carriage. She looked in on them and smiled. She then adjusted the baby sling on her chest with her own infant. All were sleeping. Trouble was the most difficult to get to sleep being that he was the oldest of the three. Silver Dash wanted LillyRose and Grace to be her bride matrons. Paradox wanted Zero and Flight Strike as his ushers. So Fluttershy volunteered to watch the foals.runetroubleTwilight trotted over to Fluttershy. “Do you need any help?” she whispered.

“No, right now I’m fine. They are all asleep I’m hoping they stay asleep until after the ceremony.” she whispered back. “The place looks very beautiful. I’d have my birds sing for the wedding but I have my hooves full. Plus I don’t think Paradox likes birds singing.”

Twilight laughed lightly. “Anything you do for your son, he’d love.”

“Thank you Twilight.” Fluttershy whispered as she rolled the stroller back and forth.

“I’ll send over Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo to help you with the foals.” Twilight stated.

“Oh, you don’t have to do that.” Fluttershy blushed.

“Fluttershy, your son is getting married, I think you need to do more than foal sit.” She whispered.


The organ started to play rather spooky music every pony looked over to see Discord playing it dressed in a long cape and wearing a half mask. He stopped playing for a moment and hissed. “Don’t look at me! I’m hideous!” He then started to laugh as he disappeared letting the original organ player take a seat and start playing more appropriate music for the wedding.

Discord appeared in front of Fluttershy. “Hey sweetness? Looks like you have your hooves full of cute foals. Let me hold ours for you.”

She gave him the foal from the sling. “He’s asleep.” She whispered.

Discord smiled at the foal as he cradled him. “Little Snafu. Are you gonna behave while your big brother gets married?”

“Don’t wake him up.” Fluttershy warned him as she looked in on Trouble and Rune Eclipse. Rune Eclipse was snuggled up against her cousin Trouble.

Scootaloo, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle walked up to them. “Twilight sent us over here to help ya.” Apple Bloom said.

“Hmm. Hello.” Discord said to the three mares. “Yes, my wife would like to have a little help with foal sitting.”

“We all helped AJ raise Crispin.” Apple Bloom announced, “And Scootaloo did foal sitting for Rainbow Dash a couple times.”

Sweetie Belle shuffled her hooves. “I helped them. I’m good at singing lullabies to foals.”

Fluttershy smiled. “Hopefully you wouldn’t have to do much. Trouble and Rune are sleeping and Discord is holding Snafu. I am just hoping they rest until after the ceremony.”

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 105


Twilight looked at every pony in the room. “Um… I’ll tell them later.” Her cheeks were burning red.

Discord blinked at her. “Why not tell them now? Aww… did you walk in on them doing something naughty?” He went over to the door.

“Discord, don’t bother your son.” Fluttershy whispered as she held their new foal.

“Yeah dad. He had a lot of emotional backlash from my labor he probably needs the release.” LillyRose said sleepily.

“Alright, I am not sure what you mean…” He strode over to Fluttershy, she handed him their newest addition he looked at the foal and smiled. “Right little Snafu?”

Epona looked at Discord. “Seriously? You named him Snafu?”

“Yes…” He grinned. “What a better name for my foal then a confused and chaotic state of being?”

Epona shook her head. “I would like to go home now.” She went to the door.

Twilight gasped. “I… don’t think that is a good idea.”

“I have to get my foal, they aren’t doing anything I haven’t seen before. If it wasn’t obvious, I have had my fair share of mates.” She looked around the room. Discord was acting like he didn’t know what she was talking about and was whistling as he looked away. Fluttershy looked at Discord and gave small frown. Twilight was blushing and Luna was trying hard not to laugh. Lilly had fallen asleep as Zero was totally oblivious to the conversation as he held their foal. Epona opened the door to go get her foal from Silver and Paradox.

Paradox and Silver were leaning against one another and looked at Epona as she walked in. Silver was holding her foal gently. “Hi Dr. Epona.” Silver said.

“Hello Silver. Thank you for watching Cobalt Lust.” She said as she took the foal from Silver.

“His name is Cobalt Lust? What sort of name is that?” Paradox asked.

Epona laughed. “Oh this foal is special.” She nuzzled her baby. “He has an incredible talent.”

Silver blinked. “And that is?”

“You’ve already experienced it.” Epona said. “Thanks again for watching him.” She nodded as her horn glowed and she disappeared.

Paradox blinked. “We already experienced it?”

Silver laughed. “Think about it Doxy… Were you that horny before you touched his wings and feathers?”

Paradox blinked. “Uh, no.” He then blushed. “Whoa. That foal can be dangerous!”
