1[[quoteright:256:]] ² [[caption-width-right:256:''Hello Sweetie''.]]²²²''[[ Sucker for a Cute Face]]'' is a WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls shipfic written by ''[[ EyeswirltheWeirded]]''.²²Quiet mornings before school starts can be lonely, but peaceful. For some people, they're a good time to just breathe and prepare themselves for the day ahead. Fluttershy and Adagio Dazzle find themselves doing this in the same place at the same time, in their own ways.²²The fic is based around the CrackShip between Fluttershy and Adagio Dazzle. Despite this, it is not a CrackFic, instead focusing on the [[TastesLikeDiabetes incredibly sweet romance]] between the two girls and Adagio's reformation efforts.²²----²!!''Sucker for a Cute Face'' includes examples of:²* AccidentalTickleTorture: At one point in the story, a squirrel gets into Adagio's clothes resulting in Fluttershy tickling her trying to get it out.²* ADayInTheLimelight: Chapter 46 focuses on the exploits of [[spoiler: Aria and Rainbow]] in an {{Expy}} of ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends''.²* AffectionateNickname: All the Dazzlings have one for Fluttershy:²** Adagio: Sweetie.²** Aria: Squeaky²** Sonata: Dr. Seuss.²*** [[spoiler: Rarity calls Sonata Miss Dusk.]]²* AloneAmongTheCouples: [[spoiler: Aria is the only Siren to not be in a relationship by the story's ending. It seems to be changing by the Epilogue.]]²* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Fluttershy's mother.²* ApologisesALot: Fluttershy, of course. ²** Adagio as well.²* TheAtoner: {{Downplayed}}. The Dazzlings are not reforming out of a desire to, but because they're bored and needed something to do. [[spoiler: PlayedStraight as they learn about friendship.]]²* BadDate: Adagio and Fluttershy's first date goes fine. [[spoiler: Their second date, however, is spoiled by lackluster food and too many prying eyes by CHS students.]]²* BarelyThereSwimwear: Adagio manages to get Fluttershy in some during their first date.²* BetaCouple: [[spoiler: Rarity and Sonata.]]²* BigDamnKiss: [[spoiler: Adagio and Fluttershy have theirs in Chapter 23.]] ²* BouquetToss: [[spoiler: In the Epilogue, Rarity is mentioned as being so ruthless at it that she needs a ball and chain strapped to her leg to give anyone else a chance, trying to signal to Sonata to pop the question.]]²* BizarreAlienPsychology: While the Sirens are intelligent, they do struggle with certain concepts, like when they played a VideoGame/MarioParty {{Expy}} and pondered why the stars were so important and decided to declare who got more coins as the winner.²* ChocolateOfRomance: While candy plays an important part in bringing Adagio and Fluttershy together, [[spoiler: the culmination of this trope is when Adagio brings Fluttershy a red heart-shaped chocolates box in Chapter 56 as a representation of how far their love has come.]]²* ClingyJealousGirl: Fluttershy for Adagio. The mere idea of anyone else getting Adagio sends her into a quiet fit of jealous anger.²* CovertPervert: Fluttershy.²** [[spoiler: Rarity and Sonata have a pretty wild sex life.]]²* CrushBlush: Oh yeah does Fluttershy get hit with it. Adagio also gets in on it occasionally.²* CutenessOverload: Adagio is usually immune to this, but when Fluttershy showers her in praise, she has to take a moment to collect herself.²* CutenessProximity: Adagio suffers this around Angel Bunny.²* DatePeepers: [[spoiler: Rainbow Dash didn't mean to do this, but it's how she finds out Fluttershy and Adagio are together.]]²* DisappearedDad: Fluttershy's father passed away when she was was little.²* DistantFinale: [[spoiler: After a significant TimeSkip, the Epilogue shows Fluttershy and Adagio's wedding.]]²* FairytaleWeddingDress: [[spoiler: In the Epilogue, Fluttershy talks Adagio into wearing one.]]²* FalseFriend: Why the Dazzlings do not want the Rainbooms' help making friends; they want friends who like them for who they are, rather than who they know.²* FalseStart: Fluttershy makes a few attempts to confess to Adagio that go no where due to her own timidness causing her to chicken out. The biggest example, however, happens in Chapter 18. After getting reassurance from Fluttershy that she isn't afraid of her, Adagio starts slowly moving to kiss her, only for Fluttershy to lose her nerve and smack Adagio with a book.²* FriendlyTickleTorture: Indulged in by Fluttershy to Adagio in order to get the Siren to let Fluttershy help her when she was sick. [[spoiler: Though not shown, it also came up during Fluttershy and Adagio's first time.]]²* FullyClothedNudity: Fluttershy acts like this when Adagio gets her to wear some BarelyThereSwimwear on their first date.²* GamerChick: To deal with the boredom of having all the money they could ever need, the Sirens picked up video games as a hobby.²* GenkiGirl: Pinkie and Sonata naturally.²** Also Fluttershy's mother weirdly.²* GirlOnGirlIsHot: [[spoiler: The Mystable chat logs post RelationshipReveal indicate that the male population of CHS believes in this trope.]]²* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: Trixie in a minor way. After Adagio agrees to only tease Fluttershy during their RelationshipUpgrade, she stops interacting with Trixie entirely. While enthusiastic initially about it, Trixie comes to miss the traded barbs between them and resolves to find out why Adagio stopped talking to her. When she discovers Adagio and Fluttershy's SecretRelationship, Trixie, in a fit of jealousy, anonymously ousts the couple to the school on Mystable. She does regret it though.]]²* GrewASpine: What Adagio's influence on Fluttershy manifests itself as. Over the course of the fic, Fluttershy goes from being scared of Adagio, [[spoiler: to stealing the remains of Adagio's gem in an effort to fix her voice.]]²* HammerspaceHair: Adagio has taken a page out of Pinkie's book by holding stuff in her hair.²* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Adagio is nowhere close to short on confidence, but underneath that is a surprisingly insecure girl especially when it comes to her relationship with Fluttershy. She has trouble letting go of her failures for one, [[spoiler: resulting in her beating herself up to the point of being unable to sleep at night.]] When it comes to Fluttershy, it's implied that she has never felt so strongly about anyone before and is terrified that she's one wrong word away from scaring her off forever.²* HiccupHijinks: Briefly happens to Adagio in the final chapter. [[spoiler: While it's unknown what Fluttershy does to scare her, it leaves Adagio horny and heavily blushing.]]²* HomoeroticDream: Referenced as happening to Fluttershy but not elaborated on.²* {{Hypocrite}}: The Sirens' opinion of Canterlot High School, only following Princess Twilight's philosophies when it suits them.²** [[spoiler: Adagio calls Sunset one in Chapter 53 for speaking like an expert on friendship when she herself is still in the process of learning about it.]]²* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: [[spoiler: Fluttershy's mom pulls Adagio aside during the MeetTheInLaws chapters to warn her that she is Fluttershy's first relationship and, if things go wrong, maybe her last because if they break up, Fluttershy might permanently withdraw into herself.]]²* ImagineSpot: Fluttershy is prone to fantasizing about Adagio in various situations.²* IndirectKiss: The entire fic is kicked off by one.²* InnerMonologue: Fluttershy and Adagio have a lot of them, though Fluttershy is more prone to them.²* TheInsomniac: Ever since the Battle of the Bands, Adagio hasn't been sleeping [[spoiler: due to dwelling on how helpless she now feels. Fluttershy solves it by inviting Adagio to a sleepover at her house and encouraging her to think happy thoughts.]]²* InsufferableGenius: Adagio's opinion of Sunset.²* [[LipstickLesbian Lipstick Lesbians]]: Fluttershy and Adagio. [[spoiler: Rarity and Sonata too.]]²* [[LonelyRichKid Lonely Rich Kids]]: The Sirens gained a large amount of wealth by enchanting the rich but until the fic, are wholly friendless.²* MeetTheInLaws: Chapters 45 to 47 covers this.²* {{Moe}}: Adagio plans to weaponize this trope to get friends.²* NoodleIncident: Whatever happened during the Sirens' Truth or Dare game.²--> '''Adagio''': "I'm... I'm not allowed to play that game anymore, Sweetie... The three of us played it amongst ourselves once, and the outcome was that I'm not allowed to anymore. No exceptions. It was a pact sealed with what we could manage for a Coltlantian binding ritual previously used to close the most hazardous oceanic trenches and lock away horrors best left forgotten... The trade-off (partly because they wanted to be fair to me and partly because the ritual traditionally calls for a sacrifice) is that Sonata isn't allowed to keep sweets all to herself (there was a concern about her growing waistline at the time, resolved since our personal gym was finished) and Aria isn't allowed to touch fireworks unsupervised... It was for the best for all three of us, I think."²* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Adagio rarely gets sick, so rarely in fact, that when she does it worries Aria and Sonata.²** [[spoiler: Fluttershy's mom is usually a quite silly woman, but when she pulls Adagio to the side during the MeetTheInLaws, she goes very serious. The reason is she needs to give Adagio the IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer speech because if something happens to cause a breakup Fluttershy might never recover from the heartbreak.]]²* RelationshipReveal: [[spoiler: Chapters 36 to 38 cover the Sirens and Rainbooms coming out to each other.]]²** [[spoiler: Chapter 48 ends with Fluttershy and Adagio's relationship revealed to the entire school.]]²* RelationshipUpgrade: [[spoiler: Fluttershy and Adagio have theirs in Chapter 23.]]²* TheRival: Trixie to Adagio. [[spoiler: They become friends later.]]²** Adagio to Vice-Principal Luna.²* SecretRelationship: Fluttershy and Adagio naturally. [[spoiler: Turns out they aren't the only ones.]]²** [[spoiler: Rainbow and Aria are gaming buddies but are HeterosexualLifePartners.]]²** [[spoiler: Rarity and Sonata are, to quote Aria, "going at it like rabbits in lingerei".]]²* SeinfeldianConversation: To alleviate their boredom, the Sirens have taken up video games, though due to BizarreAlienPsychology, don't quite grasp the whys behind the context of them, leading to these.²* ShipperOnDeck: [[spoiler: If her Mystable chats post RelationshipReveal are anything to go by, Derpy is very on board with Adagio and Fluttershy's relationship.]]²* ShipTease: [[spoiler: In the Epilogue between Aria Blaze and Big Macintosh.]]²* SickEpisode: Chapters 14 to 16 deals with Adagio getting sick and bonding with Fluttershy over it.²* TheTease: Adagio naturally.²* TriangRelations: Fluttershy briefly thinks she's in a Type 4 between (C) herself, (B) Adagio, and [[spoiler: (A) Trixie. Trixie quickly quashes that, saying that while she isn't adverse to having sex with Adagio, she doesn't love her like Fluttershy does.]]²* {{Troll}}: The Sirens.²* TheUnseen: Princess Twilight is mentioned repeatedly in the fic but never actually turns up.²* WeddingFinale: The Epilogue covers [[spoiler:Fluttershy and Adagio]]'s wedding.²* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: In the chapter Black Bottles, Sunset confronts Adagio about her friend-making troubles and offers to help. She may have had a point... had she not come across as an incredibly condescending KnowNothingKnowItAll InsufferableGenius. Sunset's attitude immediately angers Adagio, who lays into Sunset with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech about how she isn't in any place to judge because she's still learning about friendship herself, and how Adagio's methods worked for Trixie. By the end, Sunset concedes that Adagio was right to call her out.]]²* {{Yandere}}: While Fluttershy never goes all the way with it, her [[InnerMonologue inner monologues]] can have an air of this trope.
