It almost didn't seem real as Scootaloo stared down into the open casket and examined the tiny bundle within. They had done a good job, she admitted. She still only looked asleep, a small smile permanently hovering on her face from her final dream. Scootaloo turned away and cast her gaze to the sky, a sigh causing her to shudder. The weather team hadn't been able to clear the skies. Why, she didn't know, but the day was somber in its muted gray sky that occasionally rumbled withFinal Dream of a Filly Ch. 32 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Final Dreams of a Filly Ch. 1The moon was chillingly beautiful. The young filly watched it silently; a rare moment of reverence for her normally exuberant personality. A chill ran through her tiny frame and she pulled the thin material closer around her fledgling wings, trying to trap her frail body heat beneath the scarlet cape and emblem. A smile pulled at the corner of her mouth as her lavender eyes caught sight of the insignia. The symbol glittered in the moonlight, tendrils of frost having begun to collect on the surface of the cape. Winter was coming - and soon.Final Dreams of a Filly Ch. 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Once upon a time, in a land beyond the magic of Equestria, there lived a resourceful and proud species. They survived and thrived in the worst kind of climate imaginable to ponies: extreme oppressive heat in the day followed by bone-chilling nights. They were the buffalo, beset by dangers both great and small, from poisonous snakes up to massive dragons who searched the desert for an easy meal. It was a hard life for them, but they lived it by their own choice, for they were strong as well as proud.
