"Dash, ah can't do this anymore." Applejack looked down, afraid of what would be on Dash's face. "We need to tell our friends bout us. You know ah'm horrible at keeping secrets." It had been a few weeks since AJ and Rainbow had started dating and they still kept it a secret from their friends.
Dash snickered. "Yeah, I think I knew that from the start. 'Me an' Dash were-a justn', uh, having a roll in the hay. Rasslin! We were-a rasslin!" she imitated in an exaggeration of Applejack's accent. "We're just lucky that was Pinkie Pie. I'm not sure I could handle one of Rarity's wink winks and smirks."

Applejack bucked her back legs against the tree trunk. She backed up a little, allowing the apples to fall neatly into her saddle baskets. The orange pony trotted away from the tree, heading instead, towards a small cart. She got herself into position, just in front of the cart. She then reared up, so she was now standing on her back legs. The apples fell in an orderly fashion, without any of them going astray. Applejack gave the orchard a quick scan, once the apples were piled into the cart. Upon seeing that there was bit a single apple left, she let out a little 'yeehaw' to show she was done. Her celebratory hollering caught the attention o

Twilight sat up and stretched. She had just spent the best part of
three hours studying.
Around her were piles upon piles of dusty old tomes, ranging from local
history in the past one hundred years, to the origin of their species.
So far she had only managed to get through the one book, but she had a
free day, so she was certain she could blast through another seven or
so. She continued her stretching,listening to her joints crack into place.
Finally she stood up properly, giving her tail a playful flick as she
did. She did a quick scan of the room and quickly noticed something was

Twilight sat with her five friends as they chatted about the exciting day they had all experienced. Today was the day that Rarity and Fluttershy had became a couple. This meant that there were now two couples in their circle of friends, Rarity and Fluttershy, and Applejack and Rainbow Dash. The group often joked that Twilight and Pinkie Pie were next, although they vehemently denied it. Well, Twilight denied it, while Pinkie just giggled at the idea. Eventually the night wore on and the ponies had to retreat to their homes. Applejack and Rainbow Dash went back to Sweet Apple Acres, to spend the night with each other, while Rarity and Flutters
Luna's Best Night EverIt was the night of the Grand Galloping Gala and Princess Luna was thoroughly flustered. She stood in front of her mirror, pouting at her own reflection. Celestia had gone to great lengths to set the evening up for her, lowering the sun early and helping her to raise the moon and coerce the stars out of hiding so she would have time to prepare herself. She had even taken the liberty of personally greeting every guest on her behalf so that Luna wouldn't have an excuse to escape from the party itself.Luna's Best Night Ever2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

A young grey filly with a long black mane knocked on the pearl white door, a large cello gripped tightly in her right hoof. After a short while the door flung open, revealing a young filly with a white coat and a mane that was a mix of bright and dark blue.
"Is this room 35-A"? the grey filly asked nervously.
"Yep! You must be my new roommate! I'm Vinyl Scratch!" The white pony stuck out her hoof.
"My name's Octavia." Octavia shook the white pony's hoof.

Trixie groaned and stretched as she woke up. Her legs felt like lead. Opening her eyes revealed a familiar ceiling. It was the middle of the night, a half moon providing only just enough light to see by. Trixie wondered if she could go more than a week without passing out anytime soon. She glanced up as if to see her own forehead, and focused for a moment. Sure enough, a pale blue light emanated from her horn.
"Hah hah!" she shouted in excitement. A murmur caught her attention. She looked over and found Fluttershy asleep on her stool, just like a week ago. Trixie smiled and chuckled. She gazed on at Fluttershy for a moment, before

For I have a lot to say,
I've been studying hard in Canterlot,
Mastering new spells and giving flight camp a shot,

One I'll know you'll say sure,
I wish to visit the town your sis has adorn,
So that I may see my sister the purple unicorn.
Maybe she may know something to this,
Maybe we can find out what it is.

About two ponies lost in a love sea,
But in this sea,
Each other they can not see.)

Maybe...maybe if I wasn't so shy...
I may not worry being alone when I die.

Without committing a grave sin.)

So all I do is just quietly adore you,

Now their he lets out an evil wrath,
In hopes Ponyville will appear for him to see,

It stings my vein!
My gods its a fucking bane!
Ever since my soul bled,
Pain has been gushing from my head!
It's like I've been hit with ten tons of lead!
Ah! Their it goes again!
It's like a chanting clan,
As the pain rips my head like a tin can.
I can't seem to think straight,
As I'm filled with so much hate,
Getting help is now far too late.
And now as I close my eyes,
I can see my mind loosing it's ties,
And to myself I tell lies,
But I know whats happening,
I just can't believe it's already beginning!
The one thing I was always fearing.
But now I see,
It's gonna happen to me,
My plunge to insanity.

Between the Dusk and the DawnThe sun had set hours earlier, but Rarity was still in her workshop. The sewing machine hummed, the thread unreeled yard by yard, and all the pony-mannequins were occupied with half-completed outfits. Though she was tired, and as usual had taken on more work than she should have, Rarity was happy. She was singing. Perhaps for this reason, her pet Opal had abandoned her for the peace of the upstairs rooms.Between the Dusk and the Dawn2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
