A Canterlot Wedding

It is gorgeous out.
Just gorgeous! Twilight! I have lemme just Dear Twilight, I am sure you are as excited as I am about the upcoming wedding in Canterlot.
Wedding?! I will be presiding over the ceremony, but would very much like you and your friends to help with the preparations for this wonderful occasion.
Fluttershy, I would like you and your songbird choir to provide the music.
Oh my goodness! What an honor! Pinkie Pie, I can think of no one more qualified than you to host the reception.
Applejack, you will be in charge of the catering for the reception.
Well, color me pleased as punch! Rainbow Dash, I would very much appreciate it if you could perform a sonic rainboom as the bride and groom complete their I do's.
Yes! Rarity, you will be responsible for designing the dresses for the bride and her bridesmaids.
Princess Celestia wants me to wedding dress? For a Canterlot wedding And as for you, Twilight, you will be playing the most important role of all: making sure that everything goes as planned.
See you all very soon.
Yours, Princess Celestia.
But I don't understand.
Who's getting married? Oh, wait! I was probably supposed to give you this one first.
Princess Celestia cordially invites you to the wedding of Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, and my brother?! Season 2 | Episode 25 A Canterlot Wedding, part 1 Your brother's getting married? Congratulations, Twilight, that's great news! Yeah, great news that I just got from a wedding invitation! Not from my brother, but from a piece of paper! Thanks a lot, Shining Armor.
I mean, really, he couldn't tell me personally? Hey, Twilight, just thought you should know I'm making a really big decision that changes everything.
Oh, nevermind, you'll hear about it when you get the invitation.
Princess Mi Amore Cadenza? Who in the hoof is that?! Twilight? Are you okay? Sorry, it's just that Shining Armor and I have always been so close.
He's my B.
F! Big Brother Best Friend Forever? Before I came here and learned the importance of friendship, Shining Armor was the only pony I ever really accepted as a friend.
When I was just a filly, I found it rather silly To see how many other ponies I could meet I had my books to read, didn't know that I would ever need Other ponies to make my life complete But there was one colt that I cared for I knew he would be there for me My big brother, best friend forever Like two peas in a pod, we did everything together He taught me how to fly a kite He taught me how to fly a kite (Best friend forever) We never had a single fight We never had a single fight (We did everything together) We shared our hopes, we shared our dreams I miss him more than I realized It seems Your big brother, best friend forever Like two peas in a pod, you did everything together And though he's so far away, I hoped that he would stay My Big Brother Best Friend Forever Forever As one of your PFFs Pony Friends Forever I wanna tell you that I think your brother sounds like a real good guy.
He is pretty special.
I mean, they don't let just anypony be Captain of the Royal Guard.
So let me get this straight.
We're helping out with the wedding of not only a princess, but a Captain of the Royal Guard? I guess we are.
A sonic rainboom? At a wedding?! Can you say "best wedding ever"! Best wedding ever! So you all get to help with the big fancy wedding, but I'm the one who gets to host the bachelor party! I have just one question, what's a bachelor party? Why the long face, sugarcube? I'm just thinking about Shining Armor.
Ever since I moved to Ponyville, we've been seeing each other less and less.
And now that he's starting a new family with this "Princess Mi Amore Cal-whatshername", we'll probably never see each other.
Come on, now.
You're his sister.
He'll always make time for you.
Couldn't seem to make time to tell me he was getting married.
What's with all the guards? I'm sure they're just taking the necessary precautions.
Royal weddings do bring out the strangest ponies.
Now let's get going, we've got work to do! And you've got a big brother to go congratulate.
And then give him a piece of my mind.
I've got something to say to you, mister.
Twilie! I've missed, you, kid.
How was the train ride, I- How dare you not tell me in person that you were getting married! I'm your sister, for pony's sake! It's not my fault! Princess Celestia has requested a major increase in security.
Didn't you see all the guards at the train station? Yeah, there's a big wedding coming up.
Maybe you heard about it? It has nothing to do with the wedding.
A threat has been made against Canterlot.
We don't know who's responsible for it, but Princess Celestia asked that I help provide additional protection.
This, you need to see.
The burden of keeping Canterlot safe and secure rests squarely on my shoulders.
Staying focused on the task at hand has been my top priority.
Okay, okay, I get it.
You've got a really important job protecting all of Canterlot with a force field only you can conjure up.
But still how could you not tell me about something as big as your wedding? Am I not that important to you any more? Hey.
You're my little sister.
Of course you're important to me.
But I'd understand if you didn't want to be my best mare now.
You want me to be your best mare? Well yeah.
I'd be honored! But I'm still pretty ticked you're marrying somepony I don't even know! When did you even meet this "Princess Mi Amore Cadenza"? Twilie, Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is Cadance.
Your old foalsitter.
Cadance? As in the Cadance? As in the greatest foalsitter in all the history of foalsitters?! You tell me, she was your foalsitter.
Ohmygoshohmygosh! Cadance is only the most amazing pony ever! She's beautiful, she's caring, she's kind I am so lucky to have you as my foalsitter! I'm the one who's lucky, Twilight.
You're a princess.
I'm just a regular old unicorn.
You are anything but a regular old unicorn.
Sunshine, sunshine, ladybugs awake, clap your hooves and do a little shake! I am going for a hooficure and that is that! - You are not going.
- I am.
I am How many unicorns can just spread love wherever they go? I only know of one! And you're marrying her! You're marrying Cadance, you're marrying Cadance! I hope I'm not interrupting anything important.
Cadance! Sunshine, sunshine, ladybugs awake, clap your hooves and do a little shake! What are you doing? Cadance, it's me, Twilight! I've gotta get back to my station.
But Cadance will be checking in with all of you to see how things are going.
I think I speak for both of us when I say we couldn't be more excited to have you here.
Right, dear? Absolutely.
Well, we'll let you get to it.
Cake, check.
Ice sculpture, check.
Best darn bitesize apple fritter you ever tasted Check.
I do.
Do you? I do! Hiya, Princess! Please, call me Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.
Hiya, Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.
You come to check out what's on the menu for your big day? I have! Delicious! I love, love, love them.
Aw, shucks.
Why don't you take a few to go? I know how you brides can be.
So busy, you forget to get a little somethin' in your belly.
Did you see what she Oh, you should have seen how she acted back there.
I don't know when she changed, but she changed! "Please, call me Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.
" Did I hear someone say my name? Your highness! Let me just start by saying what an honor it is to play a role in such a momentous occasion.
Is my dress ready? Yes, of course.
I've been working on it ever since I was given the assignment.
And I think you'll be pleased with the results! I was hoping for something with more beading and a longer train.
Yes, of course.
And those should be a different color.
I think they're lovely.
Me too.
I love them.
Make them a different color.
Gee, maybe her name should be "Princess Demandy-pants.
" Okay, let me see.
We've been over the games The dances I think this reception is gonna be perfect! Don't you? Perfect! if we were celebrating a six-year-old's birthday party.
Thank you! Rest, my sister.
As always, I will guard the night.
Bet I can guess what you're all thinking! Cadance is the absolute worst bride-to-be ever.
Who, me? Spike! That goes on the cake.
Twilight, whatever are you talking about? Cadance is an absolute gem! Rarity, she was so demanding! Well of course she was! Why shouldn't she expect the very best on her wedding day? Applejack, did you know that after she told you how much she just 'love-love-loved' your hors-d'oeuvres, she threw them in the trash? Aw, she was probably just trying to spare my feelings.
No, she was just being fake, and totally insincere! She did raise her voice at one of my birds during rehearsal.
See? Rude! But he was singing really off-key.
Pinkie Pie, you had to have noticed how Cadance treated- Nevermind.
Rainbow Dash, you're with me, right? Sorry Twi, been too busy prepping for my sonic rainboom to pay much attention to the bride's bad attitude.
The princess is about to get married.
I'm sure any negative behavior she might be displaying is simply the result of nerves.
And I'm sure it's the result of being an awful pony who doesn't deserve to even know Shining Armor let alone marry him! Think maybe you're being just a tiny bit possessive of your brother? I am not being possessive! And I am not taking it out on Cadance! You're all just too caught up in your wedding planning to notice that maybe there shouldn't even be a wedding! Twilie! Your big brother's looking pretty good, don't you think? Everything okay? We need to talk.
I think you're making a big- Oh, hi, sweetie.
She sure has a way of sneaking up on people.
Could I speak to you for a moment, dear? Better see what she wants.
Look, we need to talk.
I'm here to talk.
- Look, she's okay- - Just listen to me.
I'm listening, I'm listening I thought I made it perfectly clear I didn't want you to wear that.
This was my favorite uncle's.
And? And I think I should wear it.
Are you disagreeing with me? I guess I am! Oh dear, are you getting another one of your headaches? Feeling better? She isn't just unpleasant and rude, she's downright evil! Twilight! Let her go.
It seemed like she had something else she wanted to tell me.
Who goes there? Stay indoors, Twilight Sparkle.
Shining Armor's in real trouble! You have to help- Dresses? What are you? Can you believe it? We're gonna be Princess Mi Amore Cadenza's new bridesmaids! "New" bridesmaids? What happened to her "old" bridesmaids?! She didn't say.
But she did tell us that she would love love love it if we'd fill in for them.
Seeing as we've been working so hard and everything.
And you had your doubts about her.
Told you she was an absolute gem! You sure this is what I should wear? Doesn't seem all that aerodynamic.
I'll see what I can do.
This is so exciting! I know! This is awesome! Looks like I really am on my own.
Perfect, girls.
No need to rush! Then of course, Cadance will enter.
I'll say a few words, and then we'll begin with the vows.
Shining Armor, you'll get the ring from your Best Mare.
Do you? I do! Hey has anypony seen Twilight? I'm here! I'm not gonna stand next to her.
And neither should you! I'm sorry, I don't know why she's acting like this.
Maybe we should just ignore her.
You have to listen to me! Oh goodness! Are you okay? I'm fine.
Ya sure about that? I've got something to say! She's evil! She's been horrible to my friends She's obviously done something to her bridesmaids And if that wasn't enough, I saw her put a spell on my brother that made his eyes go all! Why are you doing this to me?! Because you're evil! Evil! And if I don't stop you, you're gonna ruin my brother's life! You want to know why my eyes went all? Because ever since I started having to perform my protection spell, I've been getting terrible migraines.
Cadance hasn't been casting spells on me, she's been using her magic to heal me! And she decided to replace her bridesmaids because she found out the only reason they wanted to be in the wedding was so that they could meet Canterlot royalty! And if she hasn't been on her best behavior with your friends, it's because with me being so busy, she's had to make all the decisions about the wedding! I was just trying to- She's completely stressed out because it's really important to her that her big day be perfect! Something that obviously wasn't important to you.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go and comfort my bride.
And you can forget about being my best mare.
In fact, if I were you, I wouldn't show up to the wedding at all.
C'mon, y'all.
Let's go check on the princess.
- I was - You have a lot to think about.
Maybe I was being overprotective.
I could've gained a sister.
But instead I just lost a brother.
He was my Big Brother, Best Friend Forever And now, we'll never do anything Together I'm sorry! You will be.
Hello? Is anyone there? Where am I? The caves beneath Canterlot.
Once home to greedy unicorns who wanted to claim the gems that could be found inside.
And now your prison.
Help! Help! It's no use.
No one can hear you.
And no one will ever think to look for you either.
Most ponies have forgotten that these caves even exist.
Which is why they're the ideal place to keep the ones who try to interfere with my plans.
Plans? What plans? The plans I have for your brother, of course.
Don't you dare do anything to my brother, you you monster! Only way to stop me is to catch me.
Over here! Nope.
Over here.
No! Wait! Please! Don't hurt me.
Twilight, it's me.
You have to believe me.
I've been imprisoned like you.
The Cadence, who brought you down here, was an impostor.
Likely story! Sunshine, sunshine, ladybugs awake.
Clap your hooves and do a little shake.
You remember me! Of course I do.
How could I forget the filly I loved to sit for the most? We have to get out of here.
We have to stop her! This day is going to be perfect.
The kind of day of which I've dreamed since I was small.
Everypony will gather 'round, Say I look lovely in my gown.
What they don't know is that I have fooled them all.
This day was going to be perfect.
The kind of day of which I've dreamed since I was small.
But instead of having cake With all my friends to celebrate My wedding bells, they may not ring for me at all.
I could care less about the dress, I won't partake in any cake.
Vows will all be lying when I say, That through any kind of weather I want us to be together.
The truth is I don't care for him at all! No, I do not love the groom; In my heart there is no room.
But I still want him to be all mine! We must escape before it's too late, Find a way to save the day.
Hope, I'll be lying if I say, I don't fear that I may lose him To one, who wants to use him, Not care for, love and cherish him each day! For I also love the groom; All my thoughts he does consume.
Oh, Shining Armor, I'll be there very soon! Finally the moment has arrived For me to be one lucky bride.
Oh, the wedding we won't make; He'll end up marrying a fake.
Shining Armor will be Mine.
All mine.
Mares and gentlecolts.
We are gathered here today to witness the union of Princess Mi Amore Cadenza and Shining Armor.
Oh, we're never going to save him.
We will.
We just have to find There! You're not going anywhere.
Princess Cadence and Shining Armor, it is my great pleasure to pronounce you Stooop! Why does she have to be so possessive of her brother? Why does she have to ruin my special day? Because it's not your special day; It's mine.
What!? But how did you escape my bridesmaids? I WANT IT! Hm.
By you're still too late.
I-I don't understand.
How can there be two of 'em? She's a changeling.
She takes the form of somepony you love and gains power by feeding off your love for him.
Right you are, princess.
And as queen of the changelings, it is up to me to find food for my subjects.
Equestria has more love than any place I've ever encountered.
My fellow changelings will be able to devour so much of it that we will gain more power than we have ever dreamed of! They'll never get the chance! Shining Armor's protection spell will keep them from ever even reaching us.
Oh, I doubt that.
Isn't that right, dear? Mhm.
Don't wanna go back to the cage now, do you? Ever since I took your place, I've been feeding off Shining Armor's love for you.
Every moment he grows weaker and so does the spell.
Even now my minions are chipping away at it.
He may not be my husband, but he is under my total control now.
And, I'm sorry to say, unable to perform his duties as captain of the royal guard.
Not my Shining Armor! Soon my changeling army will break through.
First we take Canterlot and then all of Equestria! No.
You won't.
You may have made it impossible for Shining Armor to perform his spell but now that you have so foolishly revealed your true self I can protect my subjects from you! Argh! No! PRINCESS CELESTIA! Hah.
Shining Armor's love for you is even stronger than I thought.
Consuming it has made me even more powerful than Celestia! The Elements of Harmony.
You must get to them and use their power to defeat the queen! Rarity! You can run, but you can't hide.
Go! Go! Looks like we're gonna have to do this the hard way.
How did you!? They're changelings, remember? They're changelings, remember? Don't let them distract you.
We have to get to the Elements of Harmony.
They're our only hope.
This is just getting weird.
Real me! Real me! Do me! Do me! Meh.
I've seen better.
You won't get away with this! Twilight and her friends will You were saying? You do realize the reception's been canceled, don't you? Go! Feed! It's funny, really.
Twilight here was suspicious of my behavior all along.
Too bad the rest of you were too caught up in your wedding planning to realize her suspicions were correct.
Sorry, Twi.
We shoulda listened to you.
It's not your fault.
She fooled everypony.
Mm, I did, didn't I? This day has been just perfect.
The kind of day of which I've dreamed since I was small.
Everypony I'll soon control: Ever stallion, mare and foal.
Who says a girl can't really have it all? Quick.
Go to him while you still have the chance.
Wha Whe Huh? Is Is the wedding over? It's all over.
Your spell! Perform your spell! What good would that do? My changelings already roam free.
No! My power is useless now.
I don't have the strength to repel them.
My love will give you strength.
What a lovely but absolutely ridiculous sentiment.
NOOO!!! Don't worry about me.
I'm fine.
You have a real wedding to put together.
Seriously though.
I get why the queen of the changelings wanted to be with you but how did you get someone as amazing as Cadence to marry you? I told her she wouldn't just be gaining a husband.
She'd be getting a pretty great sister too.
Mares and gentlecolts.
We are gathered here today to celebrate the union of the real Princess Mi Amore Cadenza Princess Cadence is fine.
The union of Princess Cadence and Shining Armor.
The strength of their commitment is clear the power of their love undeniable.
May we have the rings, please? I now pronounce you mare and colt.
This is your victory as much as theirs.
You persisted in the face of doubt and your actions led to your being able to bring the real Princess Cadence back to us.
Learning to trust your instincts is a valuable lesson to learn.
Rainbow Dash, that's your cue.
Ever! Hello, everypony.
Did I miss anything? Let's get this party started! Love is in bloom A beautiful bride, a handsome groom Two hearts becoming one A bond that cannot be undone Because love's in bloom A beautiful bride, a handsome groom I said love's in bloom You're starting a life and making room For us.
Twilight! None of this would have been possible without you, little sis.
Love ya, Twily.
Love you too, BBBFF.
Ready to go? Oh! Almost forgot.
MINE!!! Now this was a great wedding.
Oh yeah? Just wait until you see what I have planned for the bachelor party.
