Most. Adorable. Vampire. Ever.
Fluttershy is a vampire and has been for years. Twilight Sparkle is apparently the only pony in Ponyville who didn’t know that.

Nosflutteratu is a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fan fiction written by Charcoal Quill.

This Fanfic contains examples of:

  • A Friend in Need:
    • On the rare occasion that Fluttershy needs fresh blood, Rainbow Dash provides it.
    • Rarity keeps a suitcase full of native soil in case Fluttershy travels outside of Equestria.
    • Twilight, once she realizes Fluttershy’s in danger.
  • Actually Not a Vampire: For some reason Pinkie assumed that Twilight was a vampire. Like everypony else, she already knew about Fluttershy.
  • The Bartender: Pinkie is trying out a “sympathetic bartender” persona for some reason.
  • Blatant Lies: Why is Garlic Flank Stake armed to the teeth with anti-vampire weaponry? Cosplay for a comic book convention.
  • Close-Knit Community: How does a vampire survive, even thrive, for years without killing anypony? Ponyville’s annual blood drive is very successful.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • The Stare is revealed to be the result of vampiric mesmerism not "weaponized Kindness".
    • Rarity explains the animals at the Grand Galloping Gala reacted so poorly to Fluttershy because, unlike Ponyville's animals, they weren't used to being around a vampire.
  • Drama Queen: Rarity's retelling of how Fluttershy came to be a vampire involves a puppet show and dramatic lighting.
  • Fool's Map: The map Garlic Flank Stake bought lead her six-hundred miles out of the way.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Fluttershy. This is not typical vampire behavior however.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Garlic Flank Stake appears to play this straight at first - but ultimately averts it. She even says that she's in it to protect innocent ponies, not because of hatred.
  • Here We Go Again!: Just after Twilight managed to get over / become used to the fact that Fluttershy's a vampire, she nonchalantly mentions this to Spike... who did not know and is as shocked as Twilight was at the start.
  • Advertisement:
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Being a bloodsucking creature of the night can’t stop Fluttershy from being Fluttershy.
  • Karmic Death: An offscreen one. The vampire who turned Fluttershy was apparently killed by Garlic Flank Stake, who just so happens to have been an old friend of Fluttershy's.
  • Kiss of the Vampire: According to Dash, it feels pretty good.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: The vampire who attacked and turned Fluttershy got ashed by Garlic Flank Stake that same night.
  • Let No Crisis Go to Waste: When Fluttershy became a vampire, the local hospital finally found a use for all the excess blood for transfusion that continued going bad.
  • Lonely Funeral: Rarity describes Fluttershy’s funeral this way. Though her account may not be completely reliable.
  • Mama Bear: Dash reacts... poorly to Twilight’s anti-vampire research.
  • Must Be Invited: Subtly implied—Rarity mentions that Fluttershy was turned after inviting a pony who turned out to be vampire into her cottage for "a warm drink".
  • Nightmare Sequence: Twilight's research brings on one of these.
  • Noodle Incident: Three are mentioned. One involving Pinkie and a pipe organ, one before that where Twilight and Lyra went on a wild goose chase looking for a nuckelavee, and another before that where Rarity got into a big hoof-fight with Dash. Twilight still has no idea where the giant custard vat came from.
  • Our Vampires Are Different:
    • Unlike most modern vampires Fluttershy doesn't burst into flames in sunlight. Sunlight does weaken her however.
    • Garlic repels her.
    • The mirror thing is a myth, as is the tale that vampires don't have shadows.
    • She can turn into a bat, but not when the sun is out.
    • Vampires are vulnerable to solar water, springwater enchanted to hold the energy of the midday sun, which cuts through their flesh like acid.
  • Plot Driving Secret: If Twilight knew what everypony else knew we’d have no story.
  • Romanticism Versus Enlightenment: Pinkie solves Twilight's dilemma by tricking her into thinking with her heart instead of her head.
  • Shipping Goggles: In universe, Rarity assumes Twilight and Fluttershy sharing lunch, followed by Twilight’s offer to purchase a hat for Fluttershy, equals them dating. She blames it on the romance novels she's been reading lately.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Sliding Scale of Vampire Friendliness: Played with, everything Twilight reads about the rules of vampirism say Fluttershy can’t be a vampire without killing someone. Fluttershy proves them wrong.
  • Super OCD: Pinkie drops the trope name when mentioning Twilight's episodes.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Garlic Flank Stake just grows garlic. She certainly doesn't do anything with reckless or dangerous with it afterwards.
  • Taught by Experience: Spike says that if nothing exciting has happened this week then it probably will soon.
  • Tempting Fate: Really Twilight should know better than to say “it’s a quiet day” and “what could possibly go wrong?” by now.
  • Van Helsing Hate Crimes: Twilight takes a while to come to terms with the fact that Fluttershy is a vampire. Rainbow Dash even calls her "Van Horsing" during their argument. Garlic Flank Stake also acts like this, apparently believing that if a vampire hasn't started killing ponies, they will soon, but she immediately relents once she finds out that the vampire is Fluttershy.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: It’s Fluttershy, what did Twilight expect? She survives by mostly drinking blood donated from the local blood bank, with the occasional drink from a willing donor (namely, Rainbow Dash).
  • Voluntary Vampire Victim: Rainbow Dash, who serves as a willing donor when Fluttershy really needs it.
  • Weakened by the Light: It doesn't hurt Fluttershy, but it does weaken her. She also can't turn into a bat while in sunlight.
  • You Didn't Ask: “I thought you knew.”


How well does it match the trope?
