->'''Spike''': So those bracelets have turned Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash into magnets?
->'''Twilight''': Well thatís simplifying things a bit, but pretty much.
->'''Rainbow Dash''': Quick question, if me and Fluttershy are magnets, am I top and she bottom or does Fluttershy top me?
''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/50060/Magnetism%21 Magnetism!]]'' is a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' comedy/shipping fanfic where, during a visit to Twilight's house, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy end up [[ChainedHeat stuck together]] due to two magical bracelets that slam the wearers back together if they don't touch for more than five seconds. This quickly proves awkward for the two ponies.
From innuendo laden conversation after a failed attempt to break the link ends up with them in front of Rarity's house to Rainbow Dash needing a pee while they're attached, their lives are made very difficult by the bracelets, and it doesn't help that Fluttershy has a crush on Rainbow Dash.
It is completed, and has a sequel currently in-progress, [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/142833/the-shy-knight-and-the-rainbow-princess The Shy Knight and the Rainbow Princess!]].

* ChainedHeat: The bracelets function as this.
* CovertPervert: [[spoiler:Fluttershy likes being tied up]].
** Rarity apparently reads ''very'' raunchy novels.
* CrazyJealousGuy: Non-romantic example. Angel does not like seeing Rainbow Dash getting so...intimate with Fluttershy. It also doesn't help that he thinks that the magic bracelets aren't magic but an excuse for Rainbow to take all the attention from him. Fluttershy is completely oblivious to this [[spoiler:and their attempts to attack each other]], of course.
** Though he tones it down after the catapult incident, as he's finally convinced that the bracelets are real.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Gilda, as revealed in the backstory in chapter seven. [[spoiler: She was aware of Fluttershy's feelings for Rainbow, and threatened to physically hurt her if she flirted with her.]]

-->Rainbow Dash poured the milk into the bowl of cereal. Astonishingly, this time it did not catch on fire.
* EroticDream: [[spoiler:Subverted]] at the beginning of chapter four.
* EscalatingWar: Rainbow and Angel.
* ExplainExplainOhCrap: After Rainbow Dash takes off for the bathroom, one of Fluttershy's animal friends asks about the bracelet on her hoof. Fluttershy realizes what's about to happen after she finishes explaining.
* FacePalm: Angel, while trying to pantomime the fact that Rainbow and Fluttershy ended up in Everfree together, ends up doing this a few times.
** Rainbow Dash does this with her hoof when she realizes she pulled Fluttershy in the direction of the spa.
* [[FeudEpisode Feud Chapter]]: Chapter 6 has Rainbow and Fluttershy feuding quite a bit.
* FlippingTheBird: Angel Bunny did this to Rainbow Dash right before she dropped a hot rock on his head.
** Rainbow and Fluttershy joke, in chapter 1, about Twilight [[spoiler:getting the bracelets off by cutting off their limbs]]. Guess what Twilight proposes to do in chapter 3?
** Chapter 1 briefly shows a scene that we don't see again until chapter 7.
* FriendlyTickleTorture: Rainbow gives Fluttershy a dose of this during the prank spree.

* HiddenDepths: Rainbow Dash knows a lot more about animals than anyone expected.
* ImagineSpot: Angel has a few about Dash making Fluttershy into a sex slave.
* InnocentInnuendo: Constantly when other ponies are around. For example, when it's mentioned that the bracelets act like magnets in front of Rarity's house, Rainbow asks which one's the top and which one's the bottom, which, after a short awkward silence, Rarity lampshades this, followed by Rainbow Dash admitting that she doesn't know what an innuendo is. It's later explained that she missed an entire week of school as a filly that just so happened to be the week they were teaching Sex Ed.
-->'''Rainbow Dash''': Now we buck.
-->'''Fluttershy''': The clouds!
* TheInsomniac: Twilight, while studying a number of ancient artifacts she received from Princess Luna, becomes an obsessive one. It gets worse when the bracelets get stuck to her two friends, and she insists on solving their problem before getting any sleep.
* InterruptedDeclarationOfLove: Chapter eight has [[spoiler: Fluttershy just about to tell Rainbow that she loves her. The moment is ruined when Rainbow cuts her off, declaring that the bracelets had come off. WordOfGod stated that, because the original plans involved Fluttershy confessing before the bracelets were explained, Rainbow would've just been confused, and the bracelets would never have come off.]]
* IWantGrandkids: Apparently Granny Smith wants ''ten'' great-grandkids, which is why Applejack is so horrified by the idea that Big Mac and/or Applebloom might be gay.
* JerkAss: Gilda.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Angel means well for his master, but prefers that he's the center of her attention and getting what he wants from her in return. He isn't particularly nice in making sure he gets this, either.
* LampshadeHanging: Rarity has a lot of fun lampshading Rainbow's InnocentInnuendo.
* LaxativePrank: Angel manages to pull one, much to Rainbow's discomfort.
* LethalChef: Rainbow Dash does the same thing Sweetie Belle did with toast, turning it into a burnt goop. Also appears in the backstory, where Rainbow Dash mentions that the one time she was put in charge of cooking, the staff at flight camp was out for weeks. See EpicFail for more.
** It's even hinted that Rainbow and Sweetie Belle's burn toast turned into monsters.
* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: The one thing that Angel and Rainbow Dash could agree on at the end of "Honeymoon in The Everfree Forest" was to never speak of this again
* MadnessMakeover: Twilight, after studying all night to find a way to get the bracelets off after having spent three days awake previously, looks completely psycho, never mind that the makeover gets worse as she speaks.
* MadScientist: Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Rarity imagine Twilight as one in regards to her sleep deprived mind trying to get the bracelets off. Played for laughs, of course.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Rainbow Dash has quite the reaction to successfully making cereal. To be fair, with what we've seen of her attempts at cooking, successfully making cereal is saying something.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Angel's biggest attempt to get rid of Rainbow was, according to WordOfGod, like launching the duo to a pre-set candlelight dinner.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Sweetie Belle when she gets her axe.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: They drop the toast monster they encounter into a very deep pit, and drop a lot of rocks on top of it to keep it from chasing them. Apparently, Angel, a three inch tall rabbit, built the trap.
* NoMoreForMe: Zigzagged. BG character Berry Punch, often depicted as an alcoholic, had sworn off alcohol according to chapter 5. Then she saw [[BrickJoke a snake and a rat playing Noughts and Crosses together]].
* NonSequiturThud: After crashing into Rainbow, while holding onto Fluttershy, Twilight says, "Yes Mommy I would like syrup with my pancakes" before falling over again.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: While it is necessary to keep touching, Rainbow has a tendency to get a bit...intimate without realizing it.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Quite literally constantly, from Rainbow Dash tackling Fluttershy and saying that they need to constantly touch to them looking very intimate at Fluttershy's cottage. Made worse by Rainbow Dash's explanations, and the fact that Applejack keeps stumbling upon them at the most inopportune times.
* ObliviousToLove: Rainbow is oblivious to Fluttershy's feelings for her throughout, and apparently hadn't the slightest clue that [[spoiler:Gilda grabbing her ass and such]] meant she was attracted to her.
* OhCrap: Fluttershy's reaction after Angel [[spoiler:catapults Rainbow into the Everfree Forest]].
* PassThePopcorn: During Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash's emotional conversation, Spike went to get popcorn and even shared some with Pinkie Pie.
* PoisonedChaliceSwitcheroo: Subverted when Angel makes vegetable soup for Rainbow and Flutters. Rainbow Dash (rightfully) thinks he poisoned her bowl, so she switches with Fluttershy and expects Angel to stop her from eating. [[spoiler:It turns out that [[GenreSavvy Angel expected Rainbow to try this]], so he put the laxatives in Fluttershy's bowl in the first place.]]
** Rainbow Dash has one while at Fluttershy's house. [[spoiler:Her first attempt to pee drags Fluttershy halfway up the stairs, and reinforces Angel's belief that Rainbow Dash is trying to kill her, so Rainbow has to take Fluttershy with her into the bathroom]]. Fluttershy is only comforted by thinking nothing will be more awkward than that. [[spoiler:At least till they're in bed together]].
** Fluttershy has one at the spa, which leads to even more awkwardness, as they have to explain to their spa partners why they have to go together, and Applejack walks in as they leave the toilet.
** Yet another one happens after Angel drugs Rainbow Dash's soup with laxatives.
* ThePrankster: Three of them working together. Specifically Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and...Fluttershy?
* PrimalScene: Pinkie flashes back to one, while yelling out disturbing details.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Rainbow yells "My! Wing! Isn't! Broken!" at the end of chapter 6.
* SanitySlippage: Twilight becomes more and more unhinged as time goes on. [[spoiler:She gets better without help]].
** She loses it a second time at the end of Chapter eight, and combines it with [[BurningWithAnger a burning mane]] after [[spoiler:Rainbow gets the bracelets off her and Fluttershy, and throws them on the ground, shattering them]].
* ShapedLikeItself: Chapter two describes a "peach colored peach."
* ShipperOnDeck: Rarity goes with a nudge, nudge, wink, wink approach with Fluttershy, after hearing about their more compromising moments in the bathtub.
** All subtlety is dropped and Pinkie Pie joins in on the fun in the not-so-final chapter, when she and Rarity [[spoiler:erect a giant banner with Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy's faces on it with a heart between them. Unfortunately, AJ talks them into taking it down]]. Even the author refers to them collectively as "the shippers" at this point.
* ShoutOut: To ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'', after Rainbow successfully makes cereal. The line before is a shout out to an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' where Homer makes cereal and it catches fire.
* SlasherSmile: Whenever Twilight goes off the deep end, she sports one
* SliceOfLife: The fic itself is very much slice of life, if said life involves two people having to touch every five seconds, one of them has a crush on the other, and awkwardness ensues constantly.
* SneezeCut: At the same time that Rainbow Dash said she doubted there was no pony who could cook as bad as her, Sweetie Belle sneezed.
* StunnedSilence: After Fluttershy says that she keeps Angel around because he [[spoiler:reminds her of Rainbow Dash]], this is the inevitable result.
** Happens again in the climax of chapter 8, with everyone except Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy rendered completely silent until the bracelets come off.
* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: The whole bathroom thing is topped by the awkwardness of their sleeping in the same bed, and Fluttershy's thoughts on the matter. This is justified by the fact that they have to constantly touch, however.
* ThisExplainsSoMuch: During the (rather dark) flashback in chapter seven, it is revealed that [[spoiler:the reason Rainbow is so ignorant about sex is because she got sick during the week they taught sex ed]].
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: When Rainbow first enters Twilight's house, she gets a book in the face.
* ToneShift: Chapter 7 takes a far darker route when we flash back to Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash's time in school.
* WhamLine: In chapter 7, Fluttershy spends a long time talking to her mother, before heading off to make herself dinner. At the end of her conversation with her mother, Fluttershy tells us:
-->My mum smiled to this and watched me go without saying a word. It would have been a little scary if she had.\\
[[spoiler:After all, photos donít talk back.]]
* WorthyOpponent: By the end of the story, Angel and Rainbow see each other as this.
