Chapter One: The Unicorn Killer
Rainbow Dash had been an agent of the Equestrian Bureau of Investigation for over three years now. When she had applied for the position, she had imagined a life of excitement. One filled with high-speed chariot chases and dangerous drug busts. She had dreamt of giant magic battles and gritty hoof-to-hoof combat. Her expectations of an exhilarating life were quickly replaced with one filled with humdrum activity and boring paperwork.
The lightning cutie mark on her flank reflected her need for excitement, which was why she jumped for the chance to be on her first murder case. Nothing said excitement like serial murder and she hoped that the success would get her a permanent spot in the homicide division so that she could finally leave foreign affairs and achieve the life she always dreamed of.

Twilight stepped aside to allow Luna inside, closing the door behind them as her mind tried to grapple with the situation and think of something to say. She had been thrown off a little by opening the door to find the young princess standing in the hall on the other side, and even more by her profuse apologies. Twilight hadn't seen or heard from Luna since that day in the ruins when Nightmare Moon was driven from her. Princess Celestia occasionally mentioned Luna in passing but it almost seemed like she had vanished out of sight and mind after the events of that night. Twilight had never given it much thought prior to now. From Celestia she understood that Luna

Chapter 8: Discovery
Over Canterlot the last rays of sunlight disappeared of the horizon, bathing the sky in an array of colors. Above the gardens of Canterlot the two royal sisters stood on a balcony, performing their daily duties. This was the time they spent together, the time they felt most connected. The last light of day blinked out of existence and Celestia went back to the castle leaving Luna to finish raising the moon.
Tonight the moon was full and ripe. The golden white color bathed Equestria in its beauty. With a sigh Luna watched her friend rise into the sky. Then a flash interrupted the beauty. A bright purple light flooded the gardens, causing Luna to wince back with squinted eyes. As the light faded into glow, Luna hurriedly raised the moon, and leapt from the balcony, ready to investigate the strange happening.
In the gardens below sat Twilight Sparkle. Her eyes were closed and she was surrounded by bags of luggage and a dizzy purple dragon. Spike wobbled back a few ste

Discorded Twilight Sparkle, Magic Isn't
Twilight Sparkle"Alone In A Group"
Greetings, my name is Twilight Sparkle. I am a unicorn and I am -not- a goth. These are my natural colors. Yes I am the personal apprentice of Princess Celestia and holder of the central Element of Harmony 'Magic' and basically the leader of the Elemental Harmony Squad (Pinkie or Rainbow came up with that name, not me).
Huh? I am NOT a Mary Sue!
1) If I was a Mary Sue I'd have been teaching my new friends what it -meant- to be friends when I first came to Ponyville instead of the other way around.
2) My spell to redirect the parasprite's hunger wouldn't have backfired.
3) My failsafe spell wouldn't have failed.
4) Also I would have defeated an actually Ursa Major instead of pacifying an Ursa Minor.
5) I'd have won the Running of the Leaves race instead of coming in fifth place.
6) I wouldn't have a nervous breakdown every time a plan of mine blows up in my face.
AND I'D HAVE ALREADY FIGURED OUT

Kakashi leaned into the wood in the comfortable fork he had found in this particular tree. It had a very good position for supervising his students during their training sessions. One leg was draped along the length of the horizontal branch while the other was propped up against his chest, a precious copy of /Icha Icha/ resting open on that thigh. The Jounin's eye darted from the extra-curricular reading to perform his periodical check on the two Genins training below him.
It was no surprise to find the raven haired boy and hyperactive blonde sparring as fiercely as they were at that moment. Kakashi sighed. No it wasn't a surprise but today was supposed to be different. Today Sakura was supposed to be fighting one-on-one with Naruto while Sasuke mediated atop a tree in the heat. His brilliant plan to keep the unexpected spice in their training had to wait until

I don't know how long it's been now. Master Discord sometimes messes with my perception of time. Sometimes it feels like eons, and others -if I didn't have clear memories of LiarJack's little sister growing up and dying of old age (after Scootaloo died as an adult mare defying master) I'd think it all happened yesterday. The Elements of Chaos seem to have rendered us immortal.
Master Discord has no need for servants, minions or slaves, but he keeps us around anyway.
Liarjack is almost the only one of us who seems to remember how things were before . . . everything began.
She smiles and tells me that everything was rigidly frozen with order before Master Discord took 'control.' That nothing and no one ever changed, the world was caught in a predictable monotone cycle.
I'm relatively certain she's lying, it's hard to tell though, she's gotten much better since things began. I know she's only saying it though so I don't get upset, so I'm not angry and I'm g

To Be An AlicornSweet Apple Acres was a busy place in the spring. Two young stallions walked the fields with plows in tow, while a mailpony dragged in shipments of seeds and tools, and a couple more ponies were visible amonst the apple trees. Adding to the general bustle was a visitor to the farm who gingerly stepped out of the sky, looked around, and opened the gate into the main homestead area. A filly, not quite yet a mare, with a light green coat and straw-colored hair and baskets strapped to her saddle had been trotting through the area, and noticed the visitor first. She stopped dead in her tracks, eyes as big as the moon.To Be An Alicorn4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

A bright full moon was amidst the dark sky. Few thin clouds, playing across the moon's face, were traveling quickly southwards by the northern wind. Below, a bunch of monasteries lay silent under the veil of night. Most of them were gathered around the nude hills of the northern plains.
This picturesque view was being enjoyed by a night monk from upon a monastery's bell tower; a vigilant monk whose duty is to stay asleep watching out for any possible danger.
The nocturnal tranquility was suddenly breached by a long tortured scream. The scream came from a cell inside the monastery. The vigilant monk got terrified to his fragile bone, but despite that he went quickly down and dashed to his brother's cabin. It just took him some moments to reach the cabin, but it was still not enough. He found the door opened and the monk "sleeping" in a bloody bed. The night monk started off back to alert the rest of the brotherhood right away. Just before reaching the bells, the wind brought t

A Different Tune Chapter 1The first day of school. A troubling time for many a colt or filly, finding out who had moved away, who was still around, who was to be in their class and who would part ways. There was the matter of supplies: paper, pencils, pens, folders, notebooks, rulers, protractors... the list seemed designed so that for the first few weeks there'd always be some poor soul who'd have to tell the teacher what they'd forgotten while the rest of class withdrew their required item from stuffed saddlebags. Students showed off new shoes, saddlebags and lunchbags, gossiped about which teacher gave the most homework and which one showed movies, and complained at the ever growing size of their textbooks.A Different Tune Chapter 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Twilight had gone to bed hours before but barely slept at all. Tossing and turning all night. Every now and then the power of exhaustion would take over, but it would only offer minutes of sleep at time. Frustration eventually won out. Throwing the covers from her body Twilight stepped out of her bed and stretched.
Stepping from her room, Twilight found the halls of the castle cool and silent. Closing her door gently behind her she roamed aimlessly. After an hour of walking came across a noise she knew well.
From behind a pair of large double doors, which greatly resembled the doors that guarded her chambers. Gently nudging the door with her hoof it creaked open. Twilight couldn't make out her assistant from the folds of the giant bed, but she knew he was there from his consistent snoring. A small ache pulled at her heart as she silently entered the room.

After sealing him in stone using the Elements of Harmony, the sisters governed over the principality of Equestria with Celestia, the elder of the two, being in charge of the sun, while her younger sister Luna taking care of the moon. This was not to be for long, however.

As Luna set off to raise the moon, she started to hear a voice call out to her.

"No one," replied the voice, "and everyone."
