Rainbows on Sunny Days
"There you are!" exlcaimed Snowdrift, flipping back her light teal mane as she landed next to her friend Sunny Days, who had been standing on the only cloud in the sky that day.
Sunny turned to the light blue pegasus pony and blinked, eyes slightly wide in awe. "What are you doing awake at this hour, Snow?" She chuckled a bit then nudged her friend's shoulder with her rainbow-braceleted hoof. "Shouldn't you be resting up for your job?"
Snowdrift grinned at the orange-haired yellow pegasus and shook her head. "They can do without me for one night. Besides, it's summer, and there are no plans... I wouldn't miss today for the world, you know."
Blushing a little, Sunny looked away. "Aw, you remembered..."
"Of course I did!" Snowdrift interjected. "What kind of friend would I be if I forgot your birthday? I even got a cake from Sugar Cube Corner. Fluttershy and Pinkie Pi

Scootaloo groaned and pulled her pillow over her head.
Scootaloo let out a sigh and pushed her pillow aside, turning her head to look out her window. The sun had barely risen over the trees of Sweet Apple Acres. Dawn must've been within the last hour.
"Every Morning... Confound those Apples."
She chuckled and rubbed at her eyes. She really shouldn't be complaining. Apple Bloom and her family had taken her in and cared for her like she was kin over the years; they had even allowed her to build a cloud house over their property once she was old enough to want the privacy.
Scootaloo rolled out of her bed, stretching her legs after she landed on the "floor" of her bedroom. The Apples were awesome ponies she thought to herself as she walked over to her shower room, and the closest thing she had to a family. Scootaloo walked into her wash room and pressed a small cloud that seemed out of place into the wall. Instantly it began to rain throughout the small room. She

The cold blue eyes of Nightmare moon were transfixed onto Twilight, whose body shivered immeasurably as though they were piercing right into her very soul. Twilight couldn't move a muscle, even after all her studying, after all her training she was still powerless compared to a fully grown alicorn. The magical constraints gripping Twilight seemed to tighten with every passing second, the tips of her hooves growing into a deeper shade of purple from blood loss. She tried to scream in fear, but she could barely release a whisper, the magic had infected her entire being, her body was no longer under her control. Nightmare moon let out a shrill maniacal laugh, one that rang deep in Twilight's ears, fear for her life being the only thing she felt anymore. " Hahaha, so little filly, how does it feel to finally get your comeuppance? hmm?" Nightmare moon paced the room, taking in the atmosphere as though she

The Lion and the Lamb
Chapter Six: Comfort
Smokey set a towel wrapped around a chunk of snow upon Fluttershy's forehead to help reduce the fever. Even though the pegasus' shuddering body revolted against having anything cold touch her, she knew it was what she needed to fight the fever. Her painkiller had worn off and the dull throbbing in her hoof added to her misery.
The dragon retrieved another pain pill and a glass of water for her. "Here you are, Miss Fluttershy. Another painkiller for your hoof."
Removing the makeshift ice pack from her forehead, Fluttershy slowly sat upright. She accepted the proffered capsule and swallowed it down with the glass of water. Handing it back to the reptile, she snuggled back under the covers and replaced the cold press on her head.
"I'll go out and get you some medicine right away." Smokey brushed Fluttershy's cheek with the backs of his index and middle fingers. He wasn't too fon

"That settles it! Chenoa, it is!" Closing the book, Smokey set it aside and scooted closer to the mattress, his attention settling on the newly named chick. "What do you think of your name, Chenoa? Do you like it?" he cooed, bringing his hand underneath her face to lightly tickle her chin.
Chenoa giggled and pressed her head into Smokey's palm, being more concerned with a head rub than her new name. Babbling a couple of non-existent words and throwing out a squeak carried out on a lengthy note, she indulged in the feeling of her daddy's scaly fingers rubbing into her scalp.
Fluttershy narrowed her eyes with a motherly smile, stroking the newly christened Chenoa on her back and leaning down to nuzzle her lightly on the other side of her head. Pulling away, she gazed up at Smokey with a wondrous expression.
"She's so happy..." she murred, before turning her eyes back to the chick. "So cute..."
"We'll make sure she stays happy." Smokey's adoring

Smokey scanned the list Fluttershy had created for him once he arrived at the mare’s cottage. He was able to find it quite easily, all really needing to do was follow his footprints back to the well where he had originally found her, then he was led the rest of the way by her hoof prints. Lowering the notepad, his eyes flickered up and down the pony's home. It was quite a charming place, he thought to himself. Not wanting to waste any more time, he approached the door and entered.
The cottage was quaint and cozy as it was enchanting, the humble abode clearly being designed not just for the pegasus but for a multitude of animal guests. It clearly showed to Fluttershy's aspirations as an animal caretaker. Though it was just as obvious that despite her naturalistic treatments and holistic practices she was not, nor was she qualified--to be an outright veterinarian. Despite this, her animal care techniques were just as valid as thos

Another dim winter morning fell upon Equestria, its sun taking a slivering peek over the horizon with an almost cheeky deliberation. The interior of the Everfree Forest was as pitch black as the night due to the low quantity of sunlight, but the creatures knew it was time to get up. As the small flock of doves hung back in their open cages, Ross took it upon himself to wake up the dragon sprawled out on the space next to Fluttershy and Chenoa--as he always did. He started by tiptoeing up to his nose, then turned around to tickle it with his cottony tail.
Scrunching up the bridge of his snout with a resounding high-pitched giggle, Smokey pulled his head away and rolled over…
Right off of the mattress.
The feeling of his scaly weight meeting the cold, hard stone floor jostled him out of his slumber. The draconic being couldn’t see much considering the dying cinders crackling in the blackened firewood was the
Elements of the Heart Chapter 1 - Arrival Twilight could only stare at the ponies in front of her. 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. It was the third pony that surprised her the most, a beige Alicorn wearing a red shirt underneath a black half zipped jacket. 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..."

As the cool evening swept in, Fluttershy stretched and yawned, rolling over… and squeaking lightly as she felt a large source of warmth beside her. Turning her head, she giggled softly. She had felt quite cozy as she slept, but she had thought it was thanks to the blanket. Seeing that Smokey had climbed in with her and Chenoa to further keep them safe and warm caused her to feel an even greater sense of gratitude and affection for him.
Her chest rising with warmth and heart beating a bit harder than usual, she leaned in to give him a light kiss on his cheek.
A wide grin spread itself across the sleeping dragon’s face at the touch of Fluttershy’s lips, a soft purr vibrating in his throat. His free ear frill twitched a couple times before he snuggled in closer with another purr.
Pulled out of her slumber, the baby griffon shifted between them, ro

The afternoon sun shone brightly down on a little purple dragon, who carried a potato sack in his left hand as he walked about Ponyville's countryside, whistling to himself. The bag was packed full of dragon peppers, rare vegetables that grew miles outside of Ponyville. They were named such because they were originally believed to be spicy enough to cause a pony to breathe fire. Spike had been proven on one occasion that this was true when Pinkie Pie threw a party for a Gryphon named Gilda, who ate a cookie with these peppers thrown in them.
It was an assignment from Twilight Sparkle, who wanted to study these peppers and find out what gave them their unbearable heat. Of course, acquiring dragon peppers also presented Spike with the opportunity for some very hilarious pranks. He would have loved to see what would happen if he could sneak just one of them into Rainbow Dash's food, or slip one into Pinkie Pie's cake mix. Rarity of course, was off limits. Simply thin

Scootaloo's Stolen Heart
"That's all for today, everypony! Class dismissed!" said Cheerilee, well...cheerily! The students began to put away their belongings and head for the exit, creating a slow funnel towards the door.
Near the back of the class, Apple Bloom poked Scootaloo with a hoof. "Hey, Scoot, are ya comin' by the clubhouse today?"
Scootaloo blinked a couple times as she put a book away in her desk, then turned to face her friends. "O' course I am. Why wouldn't I?"
"Well," began Sweetie Belle, putting a forehoof to her own mouth as she stood with a silly grin on her face. "We've been a little worried about you. After all, you have been coming to school every day lately."
Apple Bloom giggled. "And that's sooo not like you. Is somethin' goin' on?"
Rolling her eyes, Scoot exhaled a hefty sigh. She always had to deal with her other classmates teasing her for missing school, and
Pinkie Pie Character ReviewTrue story when I first decided to write this review, it was simply going to read, "She's just being Pinkie Pie", as I felt that this would be the perfect way to summarise her detailed and intricate character. But then I figured that that would be taking the easy way out, and thus decided to write a full-size review for Pinkie Pie. After all, she deserves just as much analysis as every other character within the mane cast, even if trying to rationalise Pinkie Pie's behaviour is something of an impossible task at times.Pinkie Pie Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Pinkie Pie is the sort of character that makes a fan-base. Whereas some characters rightfully deliver their own iconic lines and meme-worthy phrases, Pinkie Pie is in a league of her own. This is because her character is noticeably different from the rest of the mane cast, placing her in a position almost outside of the usual narrative of "Friendship is Magic". She can be a narrator for events outside of her control; she can break the fourth wall with glances to t

"You see, Nightmare Moon, when those elements are ignited by the the spark, that resides in the heart of us all, it creates the sixth element: the element of magic!" Twilight Sparkle closed her eyes, and a brilliant white light burst forth directly above her. Its radiance forced her five friends to squeeze their eyes shut as well. Then the light erupted in a brilliant flash.
As magic surged through the ancient ruins, all six ponies were lifted into the air. The crystal shards from the broken elements swirled around them and coalesced around each one, forming into a jeweled, golden collar around each of the five friends, plus a diadem upon the head of Twilight Sparkle

She awoke in a daze.
Groggy, and confused, she clenched her eyes shut, pressing against her forehead to relieve the pain of the unrelenting, blinding light. "Ugh what time is it?"
Her back hurt. She opened her eyes, still fighting against the sight-hindering sun in order to study her surroundings.
She was laying on the ground, her wings trapped underneath her torso. She rolled over, and stood up, all the while cynically laughing at her own stupidity.
"Haha, must've fallen off," she said to herself.
Rainbow Dash haphazardly dusted herself off, and began making her way to Rarity's Boutique.
" Here goes."
It's was morning. Well, a few hours past morning. Rarity had stayed up all night, scrambling to finish Rainbow Dash's dress. She couldn't help but wonder what Rainbow would use such a frilly, pink dress for, or why she needed it so soon. It wasn't often she'd receive rush orders, but then again it wasn't often Rainbow Dash of all ponies ordered anything from

It had been nearly a year by that point; only three days shy of the anniversary of Rainbow's disappearance. It seemed almost everypony, everypony 'cept for me that is, had given up on seeing her again.
I knew she wasn't gone.
I knew she wasn't dead; she couldn't be. Rainbow would never do that; she would never give up.
It was growing dark. Work had been more stressful than usual that day. Big Mac went and got himself hurt, so I had to work twice as hard without his help.
As always, I was sitting patiently in my usual spot, waiting for her.
"Just a few more hours, and I'll turn in," I thought to myself.
I could feel myself starting to nod off right there in the middle of the square when I heard a familiar voice call my name.

Rainbow Dash evened her expression as she raced through the skies high above Ponyville. The rush she acquired from speeding through the clouds near her top velocity was like nothing else. It made her feel truly alive. It made her feel like nothing could stop her. There were no limits, no walls that could contain her. There was just the boundless blue of the sky, and it was hers and hers alone.
Flight was Dash's greatest escape from everything that bugged her, but somehow, on that particular day, it just wasn't quite enough. There were a lot of confusing thoughts swirling in the young pegasus' head of late. Seasons had come and past since Twilight had first come to Ponyville and Dash had joined her and their other friends in saving Equestria from Nightmare Moon. Things had surely changed for all of them since then. Things had definitely changed for Dash.
She had done it. She had performed the Sonic Rainboom once again, recapturing that miraculous day in her
