Allegrezza - Part Twenty-TwoThe short walk to Octavia's rehearsal passed in something akin to an awkward, heated silence. Octavia had made it quite vocally known exactly how difficult it had been to recalibrate her sound system to her usual specification. It was around the moment when Vinyl suggested that her modifications had improved the sound of the system that Octavia almost felt like throwing one of the Ponysonic speakers at her.Allegrezza - Part Twenty-Two4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Vinyl had left Octavia to it. After eating the pancakes, making something up about a DJ-ing gig, and exiting stage left as rapidly as possible while Octavia was still in one of her moods. At this moment in time the tension was still persisting between them as they trotted down the road, and Vinyl found herself wanting to break the incandescent silence between them.

"Well, of course I fixed it in the end. What you failed to anticipate is the hour and a half it took to do so. I had to listen to Beethoofen's seventh symphony five times before I could pr

Greetings and salutations, Your Majesty. I am writing to you on this, the fourth month since my stationing in the small town of Ponyville, with my weekly report. Everything is going along splendidly, as it has been for the past few months, and I am sorry to admit that I do not have any great message of import to transmit to you.
We are rapidly approaching the Winter Wishes Celebration, and we are currently making plans to select a sapling to erect in the front yard and decorate. I am hoping that crafting the ornaments by hoof will help her improve her hoof-eye coordination, especially on a much finer scale than she is used to working with. Her job continues to bring her great satisfaction, and the updates I receive from her superiors are simply sterling.
With best wishes until I write you next,
Your most faithful servant,

Ponies meet Boy Part 6
In Hoofington .
In this small village a crowd of ponies had gathered. Every stallion, mare, and foal had gathered around a strange wooden stage that had been set up in the middle of their square. It was large and adorned all over with starts, shapes of planets, comets, and fireworks rockets.
"Fillies and gentlecolts!!" A dramatic voice bellowed. "Feast your eyes at the triumphant return of THE GREAT AND POWERFULL TRIXIE!" As the unicorn made her extravagant entrance onto the stage all sorts of fireworks and special effects went off in a grand display of lights and color. Rockets were zooming, sparks were flying everywhere. Truly a showpony's display. The unicorn had a blue coat and a light blue mane with streams of white. She continued her dramtic entrance saying, "Watch in AWE as I "
"Oh no not YOU again!" A grey stallion in the audience shouted.

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. A grassy hill, in the middle of a beautiful flower-filled field. Atop the hill, a single oak tree, probably a hundred years old.Lament of a princess3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
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.

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!

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

"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.

You are the light in my darkness,
You are my strength when I am weak.
You see my value though I feel worthless,
You make me feel special and unique.

Luna woke bit by bit, her head resting against the pillow of the bed she lay in. Feeling the stiffness in her back, she lazily stretched. An intense pain ran through her body bringing her fully awake. Everything hurt. The only thing that seemed to dull the pain was the scent of the mare she cared so much about. Carefully looking around, she found herself in a hospital bed with one of Twilight's pillows beneath her head. The space was cold and sterile. The room had

Of course friendship, being the ever-changing, mysterious entity that it is, cannot be satisfied until I've apparently learnt something. I think I'm beginning to understand the point of it all It's hard though. Right now, my own racing thoughts are keeping me from approaching the situation logically, and without logic, how can I be sure of anything?
Oh, right the awkwardness. It's very difficult to maintain a single train of thought, let alone manage the torrent of mixed emotions I'm feeling.

She casually looked at the clock on the wall and saw that the morning had only just begun. "A good nights sleep was just what I needed." She said to herself. The Princess rolled out of the small bed and stretched her legs and wings luxuriously. Leaving her room, she walked down that short hall and into the family room.

After eleven long months, the blessed event had arrived; Twilight Sparkle was in labor. A commanding voice rang out through the library. "Crusaders, attend me." Princess Luna commanded regally. The three fillies in question galloped into the royal couples bedroom and quickly came to attention. Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo felt very grown up since Princess Luna had them appointed as her official royal attendants for the summer while they weren't in school. The girls were slightly taller now and wore their Cutie Mark Crusader capes as bandanas. Around each of their necks was a silver necklace with a purple stone emblazoned with Luna's crescent moon, a badge of their royal appointment.

Young HeartsMiss Cheerilee was giving a droning lecture on the basics of mathematics, not that Sweetie Belle cared. Usually, she would be somewhat attentive and writing down notes, but on this day she seemed distracted. For some reason, she couldn't help but stare at a certain orange-coated filly seated in front of her. Though she didn't know why, Sweetie Belle had always had a certain admiration for Scootaloo. Maybe it was her spunky attitude or her bright-eyed enthusiasm; all Sweetie knew was that when the pegasus was around, she felt a lot lighter.Young Hearts4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

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."

"Good evening." Luna greeted Twilight as the young unicorn stepped onto the same balcony as the princess. It had been just beyond their rooms, facing slightly off of south, giving a few of the city below. Canterlot had not fallen asleep yet; carts traveled to their final destinations of the day, couples went about for dinner, shopkeeps began to close up for home. Twilight bowed her head in greetings as she stepped out.
"Celly dotes on me so, it's a little embarrassing." Luna looked past Twilight to the two guards nearby. Twilight gave a nervous smile. She wondered - was this Celestia trying to protect her younger sister, or protect others from her little sister?
"How are you feeling?" she asked to shift the conversation. So far, Luna, while soft-spoken, didn't seem so poorly. Her opinion shifted slightly when Luna hung her head and let out a long sigh.

Fluttershy recoiled from Nurse Redheart's exclamation.
"I-I was just hoping you could, um maybe possibly consider letting me-"
"That was a rhetorical question!" Putting her hoof down, the white nurse pony was clearly not amused by her idea.
Fluttershy flinched and looked deliberately at the floor between her front hooves. Her eyes trailed the sharp turns of the square tiles until she found herself looking at the bottom of the door to room 6.
Pinkie had cried on her shoulder for a solid ten minutes before settling down. She hasn't spoken a word since and Fluttershy had a pretty good idea why. Twilight always said she needed to be more assertive, and Pinkie needed her to be now more than ever.
