Winter in Tashmore Lake was frozen hell. Mort Rainey still wasnt sure why he had decided to stay here, when he knew damn well he wasnt wanted. Not that he deserved it. But people talked, and they talked nonsense most of the time. Nonsense and shit about things they couldnt understand and didnt know anything about.
Mort let out a hefty sigh as he pulled at last into his gravel driveway. Snow was coming down in huge, almost finger-nail size flakes, covering everything and his wipers tried in vain to clear the windshield over and over against the fluffy white assault. He had just returned from a stressful trip to

Sarah sat on a chair at the party, looking out among the other masked party-goers who wove themselves amongst each other. It was a heart-wrenching scene, even though she knew it was merely a dream. She'd never been one for masquerades, especially after that escapade when she was fifteen. It had been many years and many heart-breaking relationships since then.
She tried to be the kind of girl who was fun to date, but as she had grown older, she grew tired of the question that always came up at the end of the night. 'My place, or yours?'
It didn't matter the date number, what she ordered for dinner, or even if she simply viewed the man as a friend, they always thought that by the end of the night she'd be so enamored with them that she'd try to jump in the sack with them.
She wasn't that hard up for a good time.

Summary: Johnny convinces Edward that he is someone worthy of love. Based on a dream I had. (shrug)
Edward fled into the old abandoned house, terrified, ashamed, eager to hide. He couldnt seem to run fast enough, however. Johnny remained close behind him, calling out his name, pleading with him to come back. But Edward couldnt come back. Not ever.
He didnt belong out in that world, where people were so normal. So fragile. He could only cause more destruction, because that was his irony. A gentle soul, with hands that could only destroy.

The moon sat in the sky, slowly making it's rounds, as it had always done. It was full that night, the fullest it would be all year, shining brightly in the sky, casting everything in it's pale gentle light. The night was mild and only the gentlest of breezes ruffled the leaves of the sleeping trees on the planet below, all was quiet. From the silent surface, something leapt into the sky, taking flight on strong wings, making nary a sound to alert anyone it was there at all. Quickly gaining speed, it flew up until it was but a small dot in the sky, indistinguishable from any other, flying so fast it would have made the quickest of Pegasus gape in awe. Soon it was free of the planet, away from it's harsh gravity it allowed itself to let momentum carry it the rest of the way.
Princess Luna landed on the moon.
Small plumes of dust, undisturbed for unimaginable lengths of time, drifted up around her hooves, into the brilliant white landscape. She sat and looked out at the craters a

Was this going to be the end of everything? The end of her homeland? Of everything she knew and loved and cared about?
Twilight Sparkle sat in front of the large monument to Luna and stared up at the tribute to the fallen princess of the night. Her death had come as a shock to everyone, even now the details were kept secret from the rest of the world. Only the royal family knew the truth. Knew of her weakening, how the nightmare from so long ago had threatened to return and overwhelm the princess and how Luna had sacrificed herself to keep it from happening. No pony knew about how the elements had no effect this time, in keeping the darkness from Luna's soul. The public simply believed she had grown ill.
Celestia was once again taking care of both day and night as she had before when Nightmare Moon was imprisoned, but back then she had something to look forward to. She knew Nightmare Moon would be free one day, had prepared to cleanse her sister of darkness. Now, there was no pony to c

"The RED Spy," he said through gritted teeth, obviously in pain. He was covered in bloody bandages, mainly around his chest and arms. "He ambushed me Twilight, he took the plans"
The sentence hit her like a freight train. She looked around quickly, trying to piece it all together "No...No!"

There were groups of ponies, mostly colts and fillies, wandering around the town just to look at the colorful carnage. Some of the buildings' owners stood stunned and staring at the eyesore that their business or home had become. Some had hiked up their tails and set right to work scrubbing the walls or repainting. The hardware stores were quickly selling out of paint and cleaning supplies.
The Mayor had taken one look at the clashing argyle that now coated the town hall and had fainted dead away. They were carrying her off on a stretcher to Ponyville Urgent Care, half conscious and muttering to herself about playing tennis with a giant blancmange. Button stopped and watched as they went by, a sheepish look on her face.

As much as she admired the city, she was a little uneasy. Her visit to Ponyville had gone well enough in the end, but only because she had deigned to visit on the one day ponies wanted to be scared by her. The citizens of Equestria had yet to really accept their second Princess, even in her own home; the frightened looks and furtive whispers from the courtiers in the castle were bad enough, even with Celestia there to set them straight, and Luna knew it would only be worse in the city proper. Ponies are always much more agitable when there are a lot of them all crammed into a small place, and cities didn't come much more cramped than Canterlot. If you introduce a herd of stre

The Ponyville Golden Leafs were back home in Ponyville awaiting to hit the ice to even up their series with the Cloudsdale Red Wings. Winter was in its final day with spring quickly arriving. Waking up later than usual, Twilight Sparkle drowsily glanced at the calendar to see what day it was. Encircled and in bold, black letters read "WINTER WRAP-UP".

Twilight galloped around her bedroom to grab her multi-team leader vest and her Golden Leafs hat and scarf and bolted out the door.

With a loud thud, and the sound of wicker forcing dirt and rock out of the way, Dusk Shine's balloon landed at the outskirts of the Everfree Forest. The balloon was close to the gnarled, sharp and unkempt treetops, but none of the six ponies were concerned with its safety. In a hurry, Rainbow Blitz flew out of the basket and landed on the ground, beginning to tap his hoof as soon as he touched the soil.
"Come on, hurry it up. We don't have all day!" he snapped, looking to his friends.
"We're goin' as fast as we can, Blitz," Applejack replied, hopping over the edge and landing near Blitz. He took a brief moment to shift his hat out of his vision. He opened his mouth to speak, but was interrupted by the sound of grunting and hushed curses coming from the balloon. Both he and Blitz looked over to find Dusk angrily kicking the door to the balloon out, and in his short outburst, he tripped over the edge of the basket and fell forward. Dusk let out a

Inside the carriage, Twilight and company, accompanied by Sweetie Belle, eagerly chattered about things to do once they arrived in the capitol city. Rarity was the most excited of the ponies as she bounced from window to window, trying to observe Canterlot's splendor.

Depression and lethargy were lingering like a bad illness as the Golden Leafs finally scavenged up enough energy to meet the night before game day to scout the Black Apples. As Twilight prepared her review notes, Spike and the others were calmly chatting away. No pony dared to say a peep about hockey and they all cautiously covered a variety of other topics.

One hand clicked the computer off for the night while the other was mindless playing elsewhere, unable to hold back his baser needs from tonights intimate conversation. The fantasy him and his online lover, Patricia (A.K.A. LunaBlossom) played always made him feel this way, especially if Patricia was in one of her moods. She was wild when they played their little role play, and the fact they were so passionate about their characters made them both crave to be together and living the experience for real.

The lavender unicorn had scanned her from snout to tail with her glittering horn, consulting a stack of large, dusty tomes from time to time while asking her an exhaustive battery of probing questions about the past few days, to which she replied with a vague sense of disconnection from the answers, while a little purple dragon stood nearby and jotted their exchange down on a piece of parchment.

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.

Twilight Sparkle gave a long sigh as she sat peering over a tall stack of books in her library home one day. She was bored. She had absolutely nothing planned and none of her usual books were keeping her attention. To make it even worse, Spike was off to Canterlot for a couple days again, so there wasn't even anyone to talk to. Not very long ago she would have relished the solitude as a chance to get some serious reading done, but after coming to Ponyville and making so many great friends now it just felt kind of lonely.
Still, she was sure she could find at least some book to keep her interested. There just had to be something. If the usual stuff wasn't working, maybe she just needed to look at something different, something she hadn't read before? This was a library after all; there were still a lot of books she had never read on a lot of topics she still didn't know anything about. Moving languidly to her shelves, Twi
