* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: Shining to Ocean Floor when he picks up Twilight for their date:
-->"Should she come home in tears, or even the least bit upset about her night out, well..." ''He paused, for dramatic effect.'' "...I would suggest not coming back to the Guard tomorrow. Or the next day. Or the day after that. If you catch my drift."

That is to say, he tries to calm her down by telling him how ''his'' first date with his future wife Princess Cadance went. And as Twilight learns, [[FinaglesLaw no first date could possibly go worse than Shining and Cadance's]]. But if everything went so wrong, how do everything end up so right?

Tonight is the Midsummer Festival, and love is in the air. Unfortunately, Princess Twilight Sparkle is indoors and hysteria is the only emotion present as she's panicking over the prospect that her first date ever will end in disaster. With Ocean Floor, the bold Royal Guard who asked her out, about to arrive to meet his date, Twilight's [[CoolBigSis Cool Big B.B.B.F.F.]] Shining Armor launches a daring rescue of his sister's night.

That is to say, he tries to calm her down by telling him how ''his'' first date with his future wife Princess Cadance went. And as Twilight learns, [[FinaglesLaw no first date could possibly go worse than Shining and Cadance's]]. But if everything went so wrong, how do everything end up so right?

This

Tropes:
* AlmostKiss: After a rough night where everything went wrong, Cadance and Shining Armor finally themselves in a serene moment, watching lit paper lanterns pressed against one another. As they make eye contact and start to lean forward, [[spoiler: their canoe tips over]], though the two get the chance to do so regularly later.
* ApologizesALot: Shining during his and Cadance's first date after something went somehow. Considering [[FinaglesLaw how many things went wrong]], "sorry" was probably Shining's most-used word of the evening.
* AttractivenessIsolation: Princess Cadance initially, though her being his sister's foalsitter helped Shining work up the nerve to ask her out. Straighter with Twilight Sparkle, [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure now an alicorn]], who's now on her fast date ever.
* [[spoiler: BabiesEverAfter]]: [[spoiler: The last line reveals that Cadance is carrying a little princess with her now]].
* BadDate:
** Twilight freaks out over the ''possibility'' this is going to happen.
** Cadance's and Shining's first date [[FinaglesLaw takes a turn for the worse every moment it can]]. However, they enjoyed being miserable together ([[CaptainObvious and got together later]]), so it's more of a {{subversion}}.
* BeachKiss: [[spoiler: After Shining Armor and Cadance get out from their makeout session underneath their overturned canoe, they resume their makeout session on the beach]].
* BigBrotherMentor: Shining to Twilight, as evident in his defusing Twilight's hysteria over her first date.
* BrickJoke: [[CovertPervert The condom Celstia gives Shining]] accidentally falls out of his jacket as his parents ask him how his date with Cadance went. Twilight Velvet flip her lid and grounds Shining Armor for the rest of the summer.
* ClothingDamage: Shining and Cadance's outfits, which are both borrowed from family members, take much abuse over their first date. This list expands to include wine spills, dirt stains, and even impromptu washes, before the two eventually discard them and continue naked, [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal like regular ponies]].
* CovertPervert: After Cadance shows Princess Celestia how her date with Shining went by giving Shining a pre-emptive ShutUpKiss, Celestia concludes her farewell to Shining by winking and sneaking a condom into his jacket.
* FacePalm: Twilight still misses the obvious sometimes.
--> '''Shining Armor''': ...maybe you'll have finally found your knight in shining armor.
--> Twilight tilted her head in confusion.
--> '''Twilight''': What, another BBBFF?
--> Shining Armor facehoofed.
* FramingDevice: As Twilight is panicking over the possibility that her first date will go horribly, horribly wrong, Shining helps calm her down by telling her how his first date went horribly, horribly wrong [[SubvertedTrope and turned out okay in the end]].
* GenerationXerox: Twilight's first date starts exactly like Shining's first date, right down to the panicking just before their date arrives and needing somepony to give them a pep-talk.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog: True to the series, Twilight attempts ridiculous excuses to escape a date she's panicking about. The funniest example is when she demands her brother tell Ocean Floor that she can't go due to "dying of Alicornitis."
* NotWhatItLooksLike: [[spoiler: A condom falls out of Shining Armor's jacket after his first date. Yes, Celestia herself gave it to him, and no, he didn't engage in any sex beforehand]].
* SoProudOfYou: PlayedForLaughs After a condom falls out of Shining's jacket after his date, Velvet is furious, but Night Light acts stoic and sneaks his son a wink.
* [[TalkingIsAFreeAction Telling A Story Is A Free Action]]: There's almost no way Shining Armor could have told his story in the ten minutes between the actual story's beginning and Ocean Floor's arrival.
