My Little Muffin - Part 1 Soft, classical music echoed through the halls and rooms of the humble abode that night. It was a gentle tune, violins and bass bringing forth a powerful, yet emotional crescendo. For some reason, ponies liked playing Posh Ball's 'Canon in D Major' at weddings, possibly to reflect what they hoped the future would bring. Meanwhile, Derpy Hooves busied herself with fixing her dinner: she was not nearly conceited enough to play this sort of thing while reading.My Little Muffin - Part 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The amber-eyed pony hummed along with the tune as she chopped up some celery to put in her salad, looking out her window and into the night sky. Although it grew warmer in her house by the minute, she didn't dare open the windows or else succumb to the horrid stench that came when hundreds of ponies expelled the contents of their stomachs. Derpy shook her head at the thought, dumping the chopped vegetable into her salad.
It all started out innocently enough. The town

"And then, well, Ah don't mean to boast or get mushy, we shared the most wonderful kiss in Equestria." The four ponies simultaneously awww'd while Dash rolled her eyes.
"I didn't know you were so soft, AJ." The ponies laughed again for who knows how many times when AJ gave dash a mock glare. "But did you have to tell them about me flying off? You know that wasn't my greatest moment," she confided, briefly looking down.
"Ah, sugarcube, you've made up for that and then some," Applejack said, giving Dash a quick kiss.
"You see? You two are simply adorable!" Rarity fawned.
"Adorable? I must be losing my touch!" As the other ponies talked, Pinkie Pie pulled AJ aside.
"Applejack? Can we talk in the kitchen? I've got something I really need to tell you." AJ could tell from the pleading look in her eyes that it was important.
"Of course, Pinkie Pie. Lead the way." Once they got there, Pinkie hurriedly shut the door and began.

Rarity moved forward at a slow and nervous pace; her mind had never raced this much before. She had no idea what to expect, she didn't want to get yelled at and shut out again, but she also couldn't just leave this problem be. This must be solved today. Time seemed to slow as she walked up the narrow path leading to Fluttershy's front door. The time had come; it was time for Rarity to find out what was really going on.
She was about to reach for the door handle, but stopped herself. "It would be rude to just barge in," she thought. "No, I must handle this with dignity, and respect." She then positioned herself to knock on the door, however just as her hoof was about to make contact, she heard something; the most beautiful singing she had ever heard:
Lovely Rarity, I know that you're the one for me
I think you'll see, our love can come to be

I'll storm their walls; I'll break your falls, just so that I may

How I met The Awesomeness Mare Ever
By: DolphinBuster starring: Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle
Hey, my name is Rainbow Dash. The most awesome, most radical, most amazing, most spectacular, pony in all of Equestria. Most ponies call me the fastest flier too. Heck, I've even got a cool crown thingy to prove it!
Anyway. I thought I'd share a story, a story that will blow. Your. Mind. A story about how I met the most awesome mare ever, the mare of my dreams. A story about how I met, and ended up being with Twilight Sparkle.
Okay, so one day I was just doing my usual activity, which is flying. Duh. And I was just soaring over Ponyville when I saw this crazy beautiful mare with a little purple dragon trotting around. I don't know why I felt this way and I definitely, didn't know how to explain how I felt I just all of a sudden felt like my mind was going to explode of too much awesomeness!

Fluttershy looked up at the clock on the wall of the spa. It was 1:30, and Rarity was now an hour and a half late for their usual spa visit. Fluttershy began to worry; Rarity was never late for the spa. She walked over to the front desk, where Lotus, the pink maned pony that ran the spa with her twin sister, was standing. "Um, could you maybe cancel our appointment for today?" Fluttershy asked. "I don't think Rarity is going to show up."
Lotus nodded, and erased Fluttershy and Rarity's name from the schedule. Waving goodbye to her, and her twin Aloe, Fluttershy left the spa. As she walked back to her house on the outskirts of Ponyville, she began to talk to herself. "I wonder why Rarity didn't show up today. I hope she's alright."
Two days ago, Rarity had made beautiful dresses for Fluttershy and her other friends, for them to wear at the Grand Galloping Gala. Fluttershy hadn't seen the unicorn since they left her

Fabric flew through the air as sewing machines buzzed and threads weaved. A white unicorn was hard at work preparing an ensemble for a client. "Work," she said to herself. "There's always so much to do, which I suppose is a good thing, of course. Naturally I should expect an increase in my work load as my clients get bigger and bigger. Oh my! It's such an exciting thought! Rarity's designs worn by the most regal ponies in Equestria! Now, now, dear, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves."
In the midst of her external monologue, her timer rang.
"Oh dear, is it that time already?"
She swiftly grabbed her robe and galloped out the door to meet a certain yellow Pegasus at Ponyville's spa. It was a small business, as the luxuries of a spa were not affordable to the average pony, but being one of the high class ponies in Ponyville, Rarity could afford to take her and Fluttershy weekly. They normally discussed current events and minor gossip, of course with the dress maker running the conve

Rarity wordlessly stared at the white unicorn with the electric blue mane. Her judging eyes scanned the pony, taking mental note of every flaw she saw, noticing how her mane was disorganized, how her cheeks were filled with food in a most improper way, and most of all, how she acted like none of this was a big deal in an establishment such as this. However, the analytical fashion designer did notice redeeming factor: her dress was absolutely stunning and elegant. The piece flowed so brilliantly she was surprised it wasn't something of her creation.
"So are you just going to stand there or are you going to take my order?"
Rarity quickly snapped out of her trance. "I'm sorry, what?"
"Alright, I'll have the pork."
Rarity continued to stare at her as Fluttershy shrank back a little bit. The mare burst out lauging.
"Oh come on! Why don't carnivorous jokes ever go over well with you people? It's like you guys have no sense of humor, sheesh. Anyway, I would like a large dinner platter for two
Lament of a princessThe sky was bright orange. The sun had been setting for the past few minutes now and it's fading light was creating a spectacular scene.

But it was next to the tree where the truly important sight was. It was a stone. Old and worn, with etchings on one side. As the sun's light began to dim, a figure approached the stone. An alicorn, with dark blue fur and a mane that contained the very night sky.
She approached the stone and gently sat down. Her gaze never left the etchings, which had been partly obscured by moss and ivy. Carefully, making sure not to damage thje stone, she used her hoof to brush the plants away, revealing the markings more clearly. As she looked upon them, her expression, which until then had been fairly stoic, eventually began to morph into one of pain. Her eyes shut tightly as they began to well up.

The Cake Theory
"Baby Cakes," the latest episode for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, evolved our understanding of the Equestrian world in more ways than one. Now, thanks to pony genes, we're able to see how two Earth ponies can give birth to a Pegasus and Unicorn without any immediate relations to ether race. Answer: Recessive traits. Thank you 8th grade biology! However, there are some questions that still need answering. I personally have a theory that pertains to each Cake baby, so let's slice right in!

Rainbow Dash looked at her and said, "Everything's going to be ok Pinkie, I promise!". She went as fast as she could to try to get to the hospital, but had little luck. Another dark pony flew right to Rainbow and bashed her back, making her weaker and slower. She won't be able to hold Pinkie any longer, but Rainbow Dash will not give up.

Rays of light pierced the curtains, brilliantly illuminating the extravagant décor of Rarity's bedroom. What was an ordinary bedspread suddenly became a beautiful work of art, hoof stitched by the host, of course. Fluttershy ran her hoof along the blanket, admiring the handiwork. She didn't remember how she got there, but she didn't want to leave either; all she knew was that she felt safe here. The pegasus' eyes opened more, allowing the beaming light to flow into her pupils, awakening her mind.

Yet another one of Ponyville's brilliant mornings faded into the sky, overtaking the beautiful darkness of the night. The sun seemed to smile upon Carousel Boutique once more, shining through the windows in such a manner that made the elegant designs that much more beautiful. Without her usual sleeping mask upon her face, Rarity found the sunlight unbearable, awakening under the safety of her blankets.
'Why am I in my bed?' she wondered. The last thing she remembered was falling asleep in a pile of cloth with her partner. She looked to her right, mirroring Fluttershy's actions of the previous night, to see a similar pony sized impression in the mattress. Either she had lifted them both to the bed, or the weak pegasus carried her, the former being the most likely option. Proceeding to continue to copy her, she looked up half expecting to see her mare fixing herself up in the mirror; it was her turn to stare at her flanks, after all.

Twilight took another glance around the library's living room and then her eyes moved towards the stairs leading up. Her ears perked up, trying to catch any hint of sounds from upstairs. After a moment, she relaxed as she didn't hear anything.
She had planned this night for many weeks and now she was alone, finally she could enjoy it! She quickly levitated her checklist over so she could check that everything was in order. "Let's see here..." Twilight mumbled, her quill levitating right next to her. "Warm fireplace..." Twilight glanced at her fireplace which was radiating quite warningly. "Check."
Twilight then threw a couple blocks of wood into the fire, so the temperature wouldn't drop for a while. And now the living room was bit warmer. "Soft and comfy mattress..." Twilight moved her hoof on the mattress. "Check." she said with a smile.

He could simply breathe fire to get rid of it, but he decided this was better than the smell of incinerated bacon and eggs. He rinsed his mouth, and walked back to his bedroom. There was one more thing he needed to retrieve before leaving. He walked to his bedside table, opened the drawer, and delicately picked up the shiny silver object. Just then, the doorbell rang.
He quickly pocketed it and glanced out his door. Luna was standing there, talking to Applebloom.

She panted, heart pounding as she stood in the center of town. She could hear the blood coursing through the veins in her ears, sounding like the roar of a distant ocean. Her mind was numb, barely registering where she was or that she was covered with a sticky red substance, the pungent scent of copper filling the air. Her eyes slowly fell to an object on the ground: a stained knife that glinted in the midday sun. Next to it was a growing red pool. Her eyes trained on the pool and slowly moved to its source.
