Chapter 1: High And Dry
It was a pleasantly warm day in Ponyville. In the town's library, the purple unicorn known as Twilight Sparkle was dealing with a different type of houseguest. While she was honored to have such a guest, she was a bit bothered with the fact that a princess was taking up residence in her home.
"Not to be nosy or anything, Princess Luna, but why is it that you are here in Ponyville again?" the purple mare asked as she was helping the royal alicorn arrange her new quarters in the basement treehouse.
"My sister insisted I should take a break from the royal and formal atmosphere of Canterlot. She claims that I should get to know the common pony again and get back in touch with them," Princess Luna explained as she used her magic to fixed the blankets on her bed so that they were neat and orderly.
"Princess Celestia does have a point, I mean, after the Night Mare Night incident," the purple unicorn thought al
Feral, Chapter 4I woke up in the late afternoon to the sound of the apartment door opening, trotting over and greeted- someone who wasn't Esao. I froze, and after backing off to a safe distance watched a young woman with short brown hair and a wearing a police uniform enter through the apartment's front entrance. Her eyes scanned the main room for just a second before spotted me. "Hi! You must be Damien." She said, kneeling down where she stood. With her profile thus reduced, she seemed a little less threatening. I took a couple hesitant steps forward.Feral, Chapter 42 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
We sat like that for a minute, until she sidled up onto the couch. Feeling a bit more comfortable with her presence, I hopped up on the couch next to her. She idly scratched my head and spoke to me.

The College Drag, Part 7I woke up with Mini fast asleep on my bed, right in his spot between my right leg and tail. I guess he liked it. This time when he saw that I was awake, he just yawned and rolled around the bed as I climbed out.The College Drag, Part 76 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Beds all yours Mini. I told him as I walked out the bedroom door to the bathroom.
After I got done with the bathroom, changed out of my night clothes and into my regular clothes, got breakfast, hauled trash and cleaned out my messages, I was ready to do what I wanted to do. The problem was I had no idea of what I wanted to do.
What to do? I asked myself while standing in the game room, Dont feel like a walk, not in the mood to write, Ive beaten all my games, seen all our movies. Man, what do I want to do?
I was stuck and I have to do something. I settled on working over my M16. I felt like playing and Sunday was supposed to be a nice sunny day. I hadnt cleaned and tuned up the Buzzsaw since Storming the Farm and if I w
3 Days Regret - Part 1Twilight Sparkle was woken by the light from Celestia's midday sun shining through the window, the intense light barraged her closed eyes stirring her from her sleep. The lavender pony was comfortable unlike most mornings, her back wasn't in pain as it was after nights spent on the floor of the library, but in fact felt massaged and soothed. Twilight enjoyed the feeling as she readied herself to sleep in, though it wasn't long until a new beam of light distressed her eyes again forcing her to wake. As her eyes opened the blazing light caused her to flinch, as her gaze began to come into focus the light resided behind a figure looming over her. Only a second passed before her eyes focused enough to make out the figure before her sight, a beautiful white mare sat by her side shielding her from the window's light. "Good morning Twilight Sparkle." Rarity said sweetly, brushing her hoof over Twilight's mane. "I was close to needing to say good afternoon." She laughed lightly continuing to p3 Days Regret - Part 13 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I looked at Dr. Sandison thinking he was probably crazy, but I played along, replaying.
"You've lost me."
The doctor stated at me for a few seconds.
"Answer me honestly please. Would you...If offered...Give up your life as a human?"
"Honestly?" I said, the doctor nodded. I thought about for a minute, If it were possible yeah I guess I would. Sure I'd miss my family, but if it meant a simpler life; No need to worry about money, getting a job, paying bills... then sure, I'd gladly trade it all in for something better hopefully. I looked Dr. Sandison straight in the eye and replied "Yeah I guess I would."
Dr. Sandison looked back at me, studying me. He then got out of his chair went over to the door and locked it before sitting back down behind his desk. He picked up his briefcase, opened it and pulled out a document.

"I'll be heading out now!" Applejack yelled, not expecting any sort of response from anypony.
The sun was out with a very comfortable morning temperature with the sound of birds chirping happily outside. A certain orange earth pony was simply trying her best to enjoy her trot into town, yet she grew more worried with nearly every step of the way. The day seemed utterly normal and ordinary as any other pony would describe it, but not to Applejack. Today's visit to the hospital was not only important to her, but to Fluttershy above all.
It pained her that she'd have to tell her friends what she discovered in the field, but felt just as bad for not telling the whole truth yesterday. Though it felt like the right thing to do at the time since Rarity's sudden outburst at blaming Trixie. How could she even begin to image what the others might think if they misunderstood her? The last thing anypony would want in this situation is to
Number 3, What if tale, Part 1Six months, six long and painful months since the world began to slip into madness, chaos and death. The world had changed so much in such a short amount of time. It hardly even seemed possible. Of course, it wasn't just possible, it was happening. It hit like a firestorm to a dry forest, cities were attacked from all sides. There wasn't any way to save anyone from of fate that befell them in those sprawling urban landscapes. Those cold, unfeeling buildings that scraped the very sky were transformed into tombs for the dead during the battle. Those pieces of concrete and steel that mankind had labored so hard over to offer them shelter and a place to work only served to trap them and lead to a grisly end. What might you ask caused all this? Simple really, a reemergence of a long forgotten and to most people, a figment of imagination by long dead cultures. Thought to be tales of drunken warriors and knights who conjured up this beast in which they did battle with and won.

The College Drag, Part 31When I woke up I felt a shiver ran down my spine all the way to the tip of my tail. My back tensed up and my eyes shot open. I felt like something was very wrong, but I couldnt hear anything to indicate that. The chickens werent clucking, the goats were quiet so that meant everything on the place was in order. I rolled out of bed and put on my normal outfit. I would stop whatever I was doing for a moment at random times and listen for anything wrong; I would get just the normal sounds back. A creak of the floor joists told me that someone was moving around in the back rooms upstairs.The College Drag, Part 315 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

A strange white unicorn wearing a blue hat and coat, another was a black earth pony wearing a long green jacket and an orange hat to match it.

All three smiled at her the Alicorn speaking up.Elements of the Heart Chapter 1 - Arrival3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Uh...Hey we're kinda new around here. Would ya mind tellin us where we are?" Twilight shook herself, walking around the three ponies. The Alicorn had a cutie mark that appeared to be two large keys crossed over a heart. The Earth pony had a large shield as a cutie mark while the unicorn had what must have been a staff. Twilight had only seen such staff once before in Canterlot said to belong to Star Swirl the Bearded. She sat down in front of the Alicorn who smiled at her.
"This is Ponyville...um..."
"Ponyville huh? Sounds like a weird place t' me" the unicorn said, the earth pony chuckled

"Huh? Only 9:30 and he calls me this early? Eh, whatever."
I had plenty of time before Kyle was coming over. So, I just got out my Nintendo Gamecube that my uncle gave me for my 13 birthday and started playing some video games. My favorite was 'Call of Duty' 1 and 2. I had already beaten them at least 5 times. But I was trying to see how long it would take me to complete the whole game. So I played the first 'Call of Duty' first.
A couple hours went by. Went I looked at the clock it said 12:45. I had 15 minutes before 1 o'clock.
"I better wrap this up. Just the last of this board and done the game."
I was almost finished with the end of the last board when a snipper got me while I was crossing the bridge and died for the first time in the whole game.
"S***!! How did I miss that guy!!", and I covered my mouth after I said that. But no one was around so I just took my hand off my mouth and I put the game away.

So I set to work on making a very large meat filled omelet. I may not have a very large range of breakfast meals I can cook, but I make a mean omelet. I used the biggest skillet we had to make the jumbo meat omelet. This thing took nine eggs to make a proper sized omelet. After filling it with as much meat as it could hold, I tossed into onto a plate, put from hot sauce on it, added some basil for presentation and
The College Drag, Part 10Okay, the ref began, Since we have new people, I want to go over the rules. Rule number one, this is an honor sport, call your own hits. One hit and youre out. Anywhere on your gear or body is a hit. This includes wings and tails for all you dragons. I never thought I would say that, but now I guess I do. If it hits your weapon, its out. If you have a pistol, you can use that. Rule number two, there is a twenty foot safety kill range. If you get too close, call safety kill and it counts as a hit. If your weapon shoots over four eighty fps, then it has a forty foot safety kill range. This is a sniper rule. Rule number three, be polite. This is not the place for to go shooting your mouth off. You cause too many problems, you will be asked to leave and you will not get your money back. Youre all here to have fun, so lets all act like people and not douche bags.

Dusk was sitting at his desk in Twilight's home, the orange glow of a nearby candle providing all the light he needed, pouring through an old book. Ever since he'd arrived here, he simply could not get enough of these things. There was so many things to learn. So many new spells and forms of magic to memorise.Newcomer - Part 52 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He loved it.
He'd tried out may of these spell for himself, and although his talent was nowhere near as refined or impressive as twilight's he still prided himself whenever he managed to pull something off. As for this particular spell-book, it was an older copy of one of Twilight's favourites, teleportation. It was a concept that fascinated him. Being able to transport yourself instantly from one place to another. It was something he looked forward to doing for himself.
Overall, Dusk was pretty happy with how his life had been turning out. Ponies liked him now, he'd made many new friend

I was just sleeping peacefully when I was forcibly awoken by them grabbing my arms, legs and tail. My eyes shot open to see Scales had a grip on both my legs and Ian had my tail in a stranglehold. I looked at my right side to find Arcade there with that arm locked tight and Jake was on my left and he had my left arm locked tight in his arms.The College Drag, Part 196 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Sorry Farm, Scales said, but we had to lie to you so youd fall asleep thinking that we were done punishing you.
You can consider this the end in it, Jake said, We swear it.
What are you going to do? I asked, fearing what this ending punishment was.
Youll see. Arcade said with a twisted smile on his muzzle.

That looks like it should hold him. Ian said, pointing at the big locust tree in the front yard.

It seems like you guys have made yourselves at home. I said, looking at the mess they had made of my living room.
There were empty soda cans on every table, decimated bags of chips and a licked clean plate that still smelled of pizza rolls.
Sorry, Ian said while he grabbed some of the trash, We were going to tidy up before you got back, but we kind of forgot.
And we kinda ate all of the pizza rolls, chicken tenders and frozen pizzas you had in your fridge. said Scales, We got hungry.

To top it off, a beautiful blue sky with just the right amount of puffy, white clouds. I couldnt shake the feeling like this was an illusion, something was showing me this. I dont like to be played with.

Now the seniors were gone, and he wasn't in the group of marchers getting most of the lectures on fundamentals. Now he was helping the rookies learn the ropes.

The sun was just setting over the horizon of Ponyville as Twilight Sparkle and Spike were heading out of town towards Fluttershy's cottage. The air was beginning to cool as the bright orange warmth of Celestia's sun began to descend. Twilight smiled as she made her serene walk along the path with Spike nearly half awake on her back.
"Remind me why I have to tag along," asked Spike, still feeling sore from organizing books non-stop all day in the library.
"Because I'm worried about Fluttershy and I need you here for this. I think she's been feeling really sad lately."
"Yeah, but I don't see how that's uncommon. Doesn't Fluttershy get depressed about something on a weekly basis?" Spike said, still grumpy from his work session.
Shocked by his words Twilight stopped on the creek bridge as she turned her head around and gave Spike a hard stare. Taken by the surprise, Spike snapped out of his grumpy state; realizing what he had jus
