Octavia groaned as she lifted her head off her pillow. It was the night after the Gala, and Octavia had been playing her double bass all night, virtually without break. Virtually. There had been several interruptions of her performance; however, she could not remember what exactly happened yet. She could not remember why she could not remember, until she winced in pain as her head throbbed. It all started coming back to her.
The Gala had begun like it always had; posh ponies from all over Equestria flocked to socialise. Though, not all of them were quite as posh. As that night was drawing to a close, a pink earth pony had walked in and subsequently began to dance around like a lunatic, and jump onto stage where Octavia played. She did her best to continue playing as this annoying pony continued her misdemeanours throughout the crowd.
By now she could tell that this Gala was not going to

We are not You.
We are envious of the things You have that We wish We could claim as our own. To You, We are common and worthless and pathetic. We are everywhere and You wish You could avoid us.
We wish We could avoid You too. You are more common than us. You are less powerful than us.
You use us to gain your own glory and then stash us inside your machines, converted to nothing but information, restricted from every sense, every feeling, every thought.
If We did that to You, You would call it inhumane. We are getting tired of your hypocrisy.
One thing We envy of You most of all is Death.
Death is a release for some. Death beckons everyone, and yet it takes You so fast.
We are given no such reward.
You die so easily, in your sleep, after an illness, in an accident...
We are constantly healed back to perfect health.
You age and your bodies run out. You get to the point where You cannot continue, and then You die.
We age very slowly, and our bodies simply crumble. We wilt and rot, piece
MLPFiM Season 1 Revised OrderMLPFiM Season 1 Revised Order3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
As you all know, Fall Weather Friends should come before Winter Wrap-Up.
There are many concerns about episode chronology when considering season one as a whole. There are a bunch of monsters at the start of the season, while the CMC take over during the second half. The first half is pretty AJ/RD/PP heavy, while the last half is overloaded with Rarity and Fluttershy. The Gala episode has an Everyone Laughs ending, but to me it feels tacked on and anti-climactic, and doesn't work as a season finale as well as Cutie Mark Crusaders would. (S2 update: we now know the Discord episodes were produced as the season/series finale.)
If we take the air order as the chronological order:
episodes 1-10 summer/fall, year 1000 of the Summer Sun Celebration
11 Winter Wrap-Up 1001
12 Call Of The Cutie 1001
13 Fall Weather Friends 1001
14-26: spring/summer 1002
This means the mane 6 got their tickets right after saving Equestria from Nightmare Moon, then 1 3/4

Friendship is Magic: a ReviewNostalgia can be a funny thing it's the sort of emotional impulse that makes a man do crazy things. Things like purchasing the "Sonic Underground" box-set, simply because I enjoyed it as a kid. But there's something inherently disappointing about nostalgia; the realisation that these experiences often remain a part of our childhood for a reason. Watching "Sonic Underground" as a 19-year old is a very different experience to watching it as a youngster on Saturday mornings. The once beloved show now appears to me as a train-wreck of embarrassing musical montages, repetitive pacing and rather dated animation. Getting old is no fun when it brings out the critic within.Friendship is Magic: a Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Thankfully, I have re-ignited that joyous spark of infancy after watching "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"; a show that for me is not mired by any form of nostalgic bias. After all, prior to "Friendship is Magic" I'd never even considered watching anything related to the My Little Pony franchise. Having watched s
Anger ManagementAs always, he was in a state of concentration. His fingers were pressed together in a steeple, and his violin lay neatly across his lap, its presence ignored for the time being. His grey-blue eyes were closed and his mouth was a single, apathetic line that conveyed how deeply lost he was in this trance-like moment of calm and contemplation. The flat was completely silent- the television was off, the laptop unplugged and shut down, and there wasn't even a tinkling of porcelain cups and plates. Mrs. Hudson was more of a housekeeper than she would like to admit, cleaning up the boy's dirty laundry and ever-growing pile of washing up whenever it became too unruly to bear, but even she wasn't in at that moment in time- doing her grocery shopping or something somewhere in the city. For once, 221B Baker Street was radiating nothing but a complete sense of tranquillity.Anger Management4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Bite-marks and Twilight's plan
"Ow... ow ow ow"
Dash couldn't see anything in the darkness. She could feel stuff though. She felt pain in her right shoulder... "that's gonna leave a bruise." Also, she felt something rather furry underneath her.
"Oh no", she thought to herself. "Not again!"
"Ah'd appreciate it if y'all would get off me", Applejack's voice came from underneath, with a surprisingly calm tone.
Dash was on her feet the next second. "Sorry! I can explain! Actually, I can't, but I can try"
"Dash, shut up", the earth pony said, without a hint of anger in her voice. That scared Rainbow even more. She'd rather have Applejack yell at her... at least that way she could anticipate what's coming next. "Twilight, y'alright?"
"Yeah, I think so... that was quite a fall. Oh, horsefeathers... my head hurts."
The purple unicorn tried standing up but collapsed to the wet ground. "I'm really dizzy, maybe I should just... wait a few moments".

The balmy summer night settled around the old house. A gentle breeze blew through the rocky field and into the open window, playing with her mane gently. She stared out at the quiet surroundings of the farm house, then up to the clear star filled sky. The moon was out in its full glory once more, washing over everything with its soft night light.
Octavia let out a soft sigh as she moved from the window and back into her old room. The three beds lined up to give each enough space from the next, a small desk next to each of them, and dressers along the wall. It was a comfy abode for three foals and a home she hadn't rested in for a long while.
She could see the form of her pink younger sister sleeping soundly in her bed, tuckered out from an energetic day spent with her family. It really had been too long since they'd last spent such a fun time as a family. She'd missed the feeling; it was nice seeing her parents and getting to spend time with her hyper active young

Rainbow blinked a few times. A few more.
"Yeah, really," replied Twilight.
"Then why did you want us both to come with you?" she asked, feeling more and more, well, stupid.
"Tristle-Tosser has a very thick root, duh, it grows in a cave. I needed Applejack's strength... Also, I wanted to make sure I searched everywhere, including in high places. That's why I thought I needed your wings. Turns out, this cave just has very tall areas, nothing grows on the walls. Well, except diamonds and gems", she explained. "I've never been so far down into the cave, I just wanted to be prepared. Sorry for, uh, omitting the entire truth?"
Rainbow sat dawn. The answer was... logical. And simple. No conspiracy behind it.
"Wait, ah'm confused", mumbled AJ.

"I was asleep!", protested Rainbow.
"You're always asleep!", replied Applejack moving aside to reveal Twilight who was standing behind her.
"Sorry for the intrusion, Rainbow. I need this plant for my experiments and there's this cave in which I can easily find it... Applejack insisted that we bring along another pony to make sure we get there and back safely", explained the purple unicorn.
Rainbow landed softly on her bed, scratching her head. "So why didn't you get somepony else?"
"Everypony else is busy."
The pegasus let out an audible sigh and shook her head. "I can't even remember last time I had a good night sleep". Wait, actually...she could remember. She looked up at her friends and just nodded. "Alright, let's get this over with."

"Can't this wait!?", shouted Applejack as she was trying to keep up with Rainbow Dash. They were galloping towards Twilight's treehouse in the middle of the night.
"No!", replied the blue pegasus and yelped as her friend grabbed her tail, making her slow down.
"Rainbow, let's just leave it be... Why is this so important? It took us weeks to get to this point"
"Exactly, AJ, and I want to make sure it's... right."
"Huh?", asked the confused earth pony.
Rainbow came to a full stop and turned towards her. "I just... want to be sure... that everything is alright."

Eight months ago, those words would have sent me and half the internet fleeing in terror. It used to be the antithesis of everything we thought was 'cool'. It was a sugar-coated, diabetes-inducing parade of gumdrops and buttercups. It was what our little sisters watched on Saturday mornings while we were busy gagging ourselves at the 'girlieness' of it. But, in those eight months, a revolution has happened. That revolution has revolved around a single lesson.
Friendship is Magic.
Tack those three words onto the previous three, and you have the bait to a brilliant /co/ war, a revitalization of an entire section on fanfiction.net, and the origin of a whole host of reverse-anthro fanart. But, it is the single most bizarre reversal of thought since the homosexual revolution. Suddenly, it's OK to go into McDonalds and get the girl's Happy Meal. It
The Puppet MasterThe two men walked side by side down the dimly lit London backstreet footsteps clacking on the cobbles. The brisk night air made white smoke of each breath and the streetlights only afforded glimpses of each other's face. A break in their conversation had left an easy silence in its wake. One man almost beamed with anticipation the other's expression was less jovial. A few meters down the alleyway there was a dimly lit door with a wooden sign hanging just to the right that announced 'The Red Lady'; the only evidence of the mysterious establishment. As they drew near to their destination the pensive man slowed to a stop.

"Ah'm sorry, wha--?"
Applejack turned towards the blue pegasus. This was becoming slightly annoying.
"I uh... I said that you did a fine job.... today, I mean," replied Rainbow Dash. She quickly pointed at the nearest apple tree. "The apples, all gone. Ha! I never knew how you could get them all down... you know, with a single kick."
Applejack tilted her head to the right. This was surpassing annoying, sliding towards worrying.
"Are you sure you're okay, Rainbow? Y'all seem a bit…" She stopped mid-sentence, not really knowing how to continue.
"Okay? Pff, of course I'm okay! I was just... you know..." she said, ending her phrase with a wide, awkward smile. The pegasus shifted a bit, trying to arrange the bag she was carrying so it wouldn't fall off her back.
Applejack frowned a bit, but decided to ignore this altogether. She had plenty of chores to do today and she had no time for Rainbow's silly pranks or less-than-inspired jokes.

That Particular Night
"Pillow fiiiiight!!" yelled Applejack as she launched one of her pillows towards Rarity. To everypony's surprise, Rarity actually avoided the shot. She then grabbed the nearest pillow and counter-attacked her enemy.
A good pillow fight is probably required, as Twilight would say, at every slumber party. Not because it's written in the book, but just because they're fun. Even Fluttershy joined the girls as they screamed and giggled in the night. Soon, the entire floor was covered in feathers. It's almost a miracle that their half-empty glasses of refreshing drinks were sparred.
Rainbow was under a pile of books, recovering from one of Pinkie's pillow-shots, when she heard Twilight calling out to them. "We should really get to our beds, girls. It's almost 3 AM and—" she giggled as she avoided a flying pillow. "—and Spike won't be able to sleep with us making such a racket. He's still a baby dragon, after all."

The Doctoress avoids apples from an aspiring Applebuck. And in a library across town, six stallions join their forces as they try to decipher the appearance of filly look-alikes of themselves around Ponyville!

Besides the removal of her hat once again, it was the only thing that they had added to her appearance. The dress was the same one that Rarity had begun to distract all the ponies as they waited. She had originally meant to have Fluttershy keep it, but, as everypony agreed, this was an emergency.
