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 a small part of her reminded her of her situation. Her smile turned into a deep frown. She forced herself out of bed on the far side from Fluttershy.
"I've taken enough from you." Trixie whispered. Her horn continued to glow as she enveloped Fluttershy in a magical aura. She gently lifted Fluttershy from her seat and pulled back the covers. She slid
Luna's Best Night Ever: 4The punch was cool and refreshing, if a little bland. Luna sipped it slowly and watched the other ponies at the party as they chatted and played. The music, some new style called "pop" that she had never heard of, was playing loudly and served as the backdrop for the event. The cheerful melodies reflected the happiness that everypony else was feeling. Luna finished her glass and refilled it for the third time, taking another bite from one of the cupcakes forming a neat stack on her plate. They were much too sweet for her taste but she continued to eat them in small, refined nibbles.Luna's Best Night Ever: 44 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The moment everypony had seen her enter Luna's instincts told her to run. Instead the sudden shock of being in the spotlight had frozen her in place, sitting on the floor and unable to budge.
"Luna? Are you OK?"
She needed a way to escape the situation or shift focus away from her. Her mind searched for answers while her eyes scanned the room.
"Is something wrong? Oh! I didn't ask if you have a heart cond
Luna's Best Night Ever: 5Luna spent the rest of the party with her eyes glued to the necklace. Neither of the other two Elements present at the party had manifested a focus for their power, which made it all the more troublesome that the pink mare had apparently called hers forth. Luna hoped that it was instinctive, a reflex action. The Element of Laughter had told her to lighten up, perhaps it was just something that happened whenever they were embodying their nature to its fullest extent. The troubling part was that nopony besides her seemed to even notice it existed.Luna's Best Night Ever: 54 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She decided to ask Twilight once she had the nerve again. After having studied the Elements for so long under Celestia's orders she'd surely have some sort of explanation for it, especially if it was innate magic like that of a unicorn. She was so lost in thought that she collided with something soft and purple. She blinked and found herself face to face with Twilight's flank. Twilight turned to look at her, eyebrow raised. Luna let out a soft,

Y allí se halla una vez más la razón del querer,
los pétalos de rosas que no vuelven a florecer.
Mil lágrimas perdidas en la cavidad ocular
se resisten a salir por el reflejo de la oscuridad.
Ausencia, no devores más mis aullidos sedientos,
no labres con marañas lo que ahora cuento.
Una sola visión, un único deber...
más allá de la vida se posan las sombras del haber.
Muchacha, tú que eres tan bella y celestial,
devastas mi amargura de forma colosal.
Me resisto a los encantos de tu carne sonrosada,
a tus mejillas cubiertas con polvo de hadas.
Ámame o déjame, pero no naufragues cada silencio,
que si estoy así es por un amor somnoliento,
un amor lleno de cicatrices que se abren al pasar los años,
heridas que sólo sanarán con nuestro amor de antaño.

El tiempo pasa, e inquebrantable suspiro yace del alma
si pienso en el vacío que dejaste tras tu paso,
que fui siguiendo las huellas que dejaste en mi piel grabadas,
sollozando por las noches hasta el primer suspiro del alba.
Lloran las rosas al ver el equívoco de mi existencia,
al ver que la soledad se presenta ante mí con frecuencia.
Y es la desdicha la que hoy me hace pensar
que dos corazones unidos jamás se podrán tocar.
Y no es fácil sentir que tus principios te abandonan
por seguir los consejos de quienes no perdonan.
No es fácil, saber que el cielo está llorando
por un corazón que aún está sangrando,
que, la eternidad se posa ante nuestros ojos
borrando los recuerdos y dejando los despojos.

Twilight gently eased herself down from the warm confines of her bed. Four hooves touched down almost soundlessly on to the hardwood floors below. With great care, she made her way blindly to the door that led out to the balcony. Even through the dark, the task was simple enough. She could lend that to years of repetition; years of walking through this very room. Not much had changed since she had moved here. A delicate purple light illuminated the hooked handle and the door opened inwardly. From the doorway, a soft breeze ruffled her graying mane and she closed her eyes momentarily to enjoy the soft caress.
She trotted out into the night as quickly as her weathered legs would allow and toward the balcony's edge. Since moving back to Canterlot, this balcony had become her favorite spot, only next to the palace's library, of course. She rose creakily to her hind legs, her fore hooves draping over the railing to steady herself. From here should could see the twinkling lights of Canterlot

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 of Big Macintosh. Who had been taking a sly nap in the barn, when he should have been apple bucking like his sister. He rose from his slumber and exited the barn.
"What's all the commotion about?!"
"Ah did it! Ah finished mah half of the apple buckin'!"
Big Macintosh was visibly surprised.
"What!? We've only been at this for an hour!"

"It's absolutely wonderful to have you back home, my faithful student," Princess Celestia said to Twilight as she walked with her along the corridor that would lead to the East Wing of Canterlot Castle where the guest rooms were. "I've missed you terribly, you know."
Twilight suppressed a squeal of delight. The Princess had missed her? Oh, the things she wanted to say in reply but all she could was blush crimson and whisper, in a voice embarrassingly heavy with emotion: "I've missed you too, Princess "
"It's such a shame that you can't stay in your old tower," Celestia continued as they passed a series of huge stained-glass windows interspersed with tapestries thousands of years old portraying the history of Equestria. "I'm afraid the renovations are really quite untimely."
"It's alright, Princess," Twilight replied, looking at each of the tapestries thoughtfully as they passe
Erika's Old Big Sister 1With it being a lazy Saturday and her morning cartoons having ended, Marie Swanson was in the backyard playing. Since the change had greatly affected her life, moments like these were the only ones she didn't get angry about. Running aimlessly around the grass like a little kid was really pretty fun, even if she had no clue what she was doing. She climbed up to the top of her little plastic slide, the one that was just about as tall as her, and threw her blankie over her shoulders, pretending to be a superhero.Erika's Old Big Sister 15 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Soon enough though it was early afternoon and the rush of energy she had been getting from her cartoons and the sugar cereal she ate watching them was wearing off. Trying her best to suppress a yawn, Marie pulled her blankie off and carried it inside, stretching her arms as she did so. Entering the house brought noise to her little ears from the kitchen, and deciding she was thirsty, the once-teen-now-toddler strolled in.

At first Georgina didn't understand why she couldn't comprehend what was being said, when she slowly figured out that she was only hearing one half of the conversation. She opened her eyes and stared up at the ceiling. The ceiling wasn't a familiar one and she blinked a couple of times trying to blink away the blurry eyed feeling, only it didn't seem to help her focus. Her hand came into view and she crammed it into her mouth, chewing on her knuckles. This woke her up quite quickly. She tried to pull her hand from her mouth but it seemed like her body had different ideas and she continued to chew on her fist.

Manehattan - 9:30 PM
Scumbag: the most prolific term in my vocabulary is the word scumbag, and for good reason; almost everyone I meet in the streets nowadays is a scumbag.
What constitutes a scumbag? The signs are too long to list, but I don't need to; I know a scumbag when I see one, and the unicorn running away from me at this very moment constituted a grade-A example of what a real scumbag is.
The filthy piece of scum ran - flying almost - as I pursued him, pistol levitating near my head in a soft, dark colored glow. He sure ran fast for someone who had just had a bullet pierce his hind leg; but I had grown accustomed to this sight, as it had played out in the same form for more times that I dared count.
His ragged red robes concealed just how dangerous this piece of equine filth was, and this one was as vile as you could get: a foal-raping, mass-murdering cannibal cultist who was mere seconds away from having his brains become part of the pavement.

Lucky was wagging his tail when he heard a bark, Two-Tone approached him, her tail wagging as she sat with him in the front lawn. It was a lazy day for the pups with nothing much to do. As they laid out on the front lawn they noticed a van pull up, this van neither had seen before, the door opened as the pups approached the van curiously, a sweet aroma poured from it, the pups sniffed the aroma and wagged climbing into the van, they sniffed a bowl which had puppy food. The pups wagged and started eating the food, unaware of the danger they were in, before they knew it a bag was thrown over them, the pups whimpered as the van drove off.Pupnapped4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Trixie found the days passed by quickly and peacefully from there. She began to develop a routine. By the time she awoke Fluttershy was making breakfast, typically oatmeal, a warm and filing meal that started the day right. Trixie would take her mornings easy, still recuperating. She had gotten her books back from Twilight, and would review them, often in the garden if the weather held. She would then usually accompany Fluttershy into town in the afternoon, having lunch with her or just taking the chance to stretch her legs. She began to fill out little by little, her coat gleamed once more, and she regained her former energy. Only one thing stood between her and true health. That was why, nearly a week since her first visit, Trixie found herself in the Ponyville library again, Twilight Sparkle staring at her.
"Absolutely no magic?"
"None at all." Trixie shook her head. Twilight frowned.

So after her pleading and demands, I've decided to go to a local park, have an ice cream and just sit somewhere. Whoo, fun.
After buying an ice cream from the shops, my favourite at that - a triple chocolate scoop with two flakes, sprinkles, hot chocolate sauce and some crushed nuts. I can't gain weight what with being immortal and all that.
Now then, somewhere to sit while I wolf down my chocolate overload of a treat.
Here we go, a nice park bench overlooking a lake, there's an old tree standing over the bench and shades it quite well from the glare of the sun, not that the sun can bother me too much other than the sun glare.

Nothing special at all, in fact plain, dull and drab.
He lived under a rock in Stonehaven's bay
And his goal was to dream his whole life away.
One morning he realised he was wasting his time
Under his rock, soaking in the brine.
So he pooled all his money and got an ambition
then he went and signed up for martial art tuition.
Over several years he perfected his skill
Till he could do back flips and his pincers could kill
He was subtly scuttley, agile and quick
He had starfish shuriken he could throw with a flick.
Relentlessly he patrolled the sea
a crustaceous courageous vigilante.
Creatures would gossip, they hadn't a clue,
who this ninja crab was, nobody knew.
Tales of his ventures made lady crabs swoon
from the largest of oceans to the smallest lagoons.
So Pete got to work, cleaning up scum
Fighting crime day and night until his job was done.
He put killer whales behind bars, loan sharks in their place
making the sea a much nicer space.

"Toniiiiight I'm gonna have myseeeellffff a real good time..." The blue pegasus punctuated the first lyric of his favorite song by doing a double barrel roll, pulling it off effortlessly as he sped from Canterlot. Soarin' had a reason to be excited. For weeks he had been trying to make time for this trip, but the air shows, celebrity appearances, and the endless practice sessions meant to keep his skills sharp had sucked up every second of time. By the time a typical Wonderbolt day was over, he was too exhausted to do anything but grab a little supper, followed by a post-supper snack, followed by a post-post-supper snack snack. Most nights he went straight to bed after this, completely missing out on his super-late just-before-bed snack, which rated as one of his top three favorite snacks during the day, after post-breakfast and mid-noon, of course.

She had never been on a real date before, but it sounded super fun, especially since it was Twilight and she was such a great pony. Pinkie just couldn't wait.
Suddenly, Pinkie decided she was hungry. Her head bouncing from side to side, she left her room and went downstairs. She saw some tasty looking pink cupcakes resting on a tray on a table. She threw three of them in her mouth all at once and gulped them down with a smile. They were super delicious. Pinkie's whole body quivered as she enjoyed the amazing flavor.

Almost immediately her mood fouled. There was less light than last time, but she could still make out the same yellow ceiling as before. She quickly remembered where she was and why. That pegasus, she had... tricked Trixie. Tricked her into accepting food and aid, Trixie realized. She wasn't sure what exactly the pegasus had done wrong. But the indignity of it infuriated her.
Trixie looked herself over and gasped slightly. Her body was more bandages than not, her legs entirely covered and several pads held to her sides with medical tape.
