I was walking,
No, I was running,
No I was sprinting
From a car
Wait, it was a person
Wait, it was the cops
I'm getting ahead of myself.
I was sprinting from a man
And he wanted
No, insisted that I buy his
Special hand soaps
Wait, he was selling bibles
Or was it encyclopedias?
He was selling books
Of some sort
And for no reason,
Was there no reason?
There had to be a reason that
I grabbed the keys from his pocket
And started running.
Maybe I wanted to feel
the rush of adrenaline,
That makes no sense,
I was already on acid
I was on tons of laxatives
A whole laxative pie
And I was running faster than
I ever have, because let's face it,
I hadn't a moment to lose.
So I was running down the street
From a guy selling hand soaps
No! Laxatives! No! Speed!
And he was charging at top speed
Because I had just stolen his car
I didn't steal his car,
I was just borrowing it
Because I stole his speed
I didn't steal his keys!
And I needed to get away

Rainbow Dash was having one of her trademark naps on a tree, content and undisturbed. The sun was out, the birds were singing, and if it was business as usual Rainbow would've gagged at how cliche it was. But there had been a brief lull in her adventures, and though she wouldn't admit it to any of her friends, she was glad. After how well the Grand Galloping Galla went, she and her fellow Elements could use a rest. Dash was perfectly fine with that, allowing her mind to drift to her favorite dreams, when-
Dash gave a "little" jump, causing her to not only fall off the tree, but to crash through several of the branches on the way down. A bonk on the head through the first branch, a crash through the second with her torso, and finally her wings were caught on the next two branches below. Angered by her predicament, she struggled to break free and while successful, she didn't have enough time to brace herself for the fall. After all this, R

In this Economy we face hard times.
I saw a Child.

Nearly down to my last dime.

'Twas Hearth's Warming Eve
And under the moon
Not a pony was stirring
Not an owl, not a loon
Foals' stockings were hung
On the mantle with pride
In hopes that best pony
Soon there would arrive
They slept in their beds
All those dear little fillies
Dreaming cookies and cupcakes
And donuts with filling
When up on the rooftop
I heard something quite swoopy
As if AJ's sister
Were there loop-de-hooping
I arose from my bed
And donned my wool stockings
(For I couldn't be naked
If guests were a' knocking!)
I slunk down the stairs
And to my great surprise
Was greeted by coal dust
And a pair of blue eyes
"Shhh!" said the soot
Covered pony below me
"We don't want to wake
all these nice sleeping ponies!"
Her scaly companion
Showed expression quite vacant
But she thought I was sleeping
So I decided to fake it
As light as a pegasus
And as quiet as a mouse
I descended the stairs
To watch this guest in my house
She pulled out a bag
And I knew then for sure
She had snuck in to rob us
And leave us all p

As I eat my lunch and holds hands with him, a family sends their 7 year old to give us a note that they are praying for our souls.
As I tell them who she really is, I can see their smiles become strained.
When I give them a hug, I feel how they stiffen.
When I kiss you good bye, I know they are shaking their heads.
When they ask who else shares this ring, I should be able to say your name without fear.
They call us perverted, but they are the ones who focus on our love life.
They say we ruin family values, when they are divorcing and remarrying many times over.
They ask us how we can do this to our families, our lives, our children, and I can only reply,
"You told us you loved us, yet now you act as if we have a disease. You ask how we can bring ourselves into a world of bullying and ask our partners to be as out as we are if they aren't. How we can let our children be teased because of

Derpy Hooves was inside her home to avoid the winter storm, she had already started a fire in her fireplace and had put a blanket over herself to help her warm up again. As Derpy looked out her window she was very glad she was not in the storm anymore. She started to relax a little when a thought struck her mind, 'what if somepony was stuck outside?' The warmth of the fire in front of her was very inviting compared to the cold outside, but in Derpys heart she knew that the possibility of leaving somepony outside while she was safe inside was not something she could ignore. After grabbing her winter wears Derpy went back out into the raging winter storms in order to help whoever needed it.
Rarity was trying to head to the rendezvous point, but her progress back across Ponyville was quite slow. Rarity's hooves were aching from running through the snow to Sweet Apple Acres. She was thinking, 'Oh why was I, of all ponies, chosen to go the farthest distance to see if Rainbow Dash

"You have beautiful eyes." Scootaloo said,as she braced herself for pain.None came.
"Well thank you!" Rainbow Dash uttered the words before she could think.What am I doing?I have to kill her!Then a horrible thought hit Dashie:Maybe I don't...maybe there's something worse than death. She smiled insanely at Scootaloo,who was now looking at her in a rather puzzled way. "Scootaloo,I've changed my mind.You get to be my coworker." the suit ponies surrounding them looked at one another.
"But...I thought you wanted to kill me." Scootaloo didn't know what else to say.There was a small spark of hope inside her that Rainbow Dash had snapped out of it. "

The Warmth Under Your Wings, Part 3The space of the waiting room felt like it had closed around Rainbow Dash and Dr. heartfeld, leaving them in a vacuum where they were able to comprehend only each other's presence and the things they said. Rainbow Dash was completely still on the outside, but the inside of her head kept telling her different ways to properly react to the things the old, faded tan stallion had just told her. Though she had an idea what had happened in Scootaloo's past, she was still somewhat unprepared for hearing the truth.The Warmth Under Your Wings, Part 33 years ago in Drama More Like This
Dr. Heartfeld was a patient pony. While Rainbow was picking up the pieces of information one by one, he sat still and watched her with a pair of curious, yet calm eyes, eager to hear her response while still giving her the required time to absorb what he had said. With a straight back and a dignified expression, he sat ready for Rainbow's judgment, whatever it would be. This was, after all, the reason she had asked him to tell her the story of the unfortunate orange filly in the fir

She carefully pushed the door open and walked through the door.
On the otherside was a large open room, almost like a small gymnasium. She walked forward to the middle of the room, when she stopped.
A black fire was burning on the opposite side of the court. The fire slowly grew, rising up into the shape of a pony, before red eyes appeared on its face, a white mouth opening. It was the dark creature.
Fluttershy stared at the creature. She didn't feel a heavy, overbearing presence this time. The creature was still drawing fear from her heart, but it

As soon as he walked onto the balcony, the clopping from his hooves hitting the wooden structure was loud and clear.
Twilight quickly heard the sound and turned to look at Spike, "Oh...good morning Spike." she said, her voice apparently showing it was forced out in a slightly cheerful tone.
"Morning Twilight." he stated with a curious look as he gave as he looked over her. If it wasn't the tone of her voice, it would be her appearance that got his attention. While it was clear that Twilight had managed to sleep well enough last night, considering she didn't look at all tired, it seems like she had forgotten to groom her mane and tail before co

Hullo there, this is England. Yes, the England. The once-great empire with a now-buggered economy that now spends his days drowning his sorrow lounging around the house, drinking tea, reading the Daily Mail and draining himself of IQ points watching EastEnders of an evening. Not to mention having a particular sodding Frenchman hiding in my garden and peeping at me through high-powered binoculars like it's normal and like I can't bloody see him as clear as bloody day.
Thus, this letter. I've decided to try and forget my current problems by reaching out, so to speak, to anyone who can be bothered to help me do so, at least for a brief time.

The Warmth Under Your Wings, part 1The first thought that popped into Scootaloo's head before she opened her eyes was that the hay somehow felt different than usual. It felt so comfortable and warm, yet light as air and slightly wet like morning dew. She began poking the fluffy material a few times before she finally opened her eyes and took a good look at this strange bed surface. Surprised at first, she did not see hay, but a pretty white cloud. A smile formed on her face when she finally remembered just what was going on, and as she took a good look around the spacious room of white, the pleasant reality came to her like merry thoughts on a Hearth's Warming Eve's morning.

The storm had finally disappeared, leaving the expansive azure sky relatively clear. AppleJack scrambled through town, her mind somehow moving faster than her hooves. One moment she was running toward the Everfree forest, the next toward Sugarcube Corner. Her mind finally overloaded as she fell to the ground weeping nervously.
She whispered sadly into her hooves, “C’mon you stupid filly... Be smarter than the average pony!” She was taken up by a familiar and warming voice.
“AppleJack, what’s wrong?” Twilight said, reaching out a hoof to help her overwhelmed

Rainbow Dash shot the filly a heartwarming smile. The happiness Scootaloo had been beaming with all day was something genuine, something she had never thought she would see in the orange pegasus. Before today, every smile Scootaloo made seemed to have required a command from her. Like she had been unable to laugh out of reflex like most ponies would when they are happy. That this smile and excitement on the skipping filly's face seemed to be happening without her realizing it, made Rainbow feel both glad and proud. She was the one who made Scootaloo laugh.
"You'll see when we get there, Squirt," Rainbow Dash said with a teasing tone. "But really, it's not that exciting. It's jus

There Discord lay...though he looked much bigger than before, and that fang visible below his top lip seemed almost too...terrifying. The red pupils in his golden eyes made the canine host's fur stick up on end.
"For my friend Twilight...for my friend Twilight..." Ruff told himself repeatedly, nearly shrinking even further behind the bush he kept himself hidden in.
However, he wasn't the only one keeping hidden. Blossom and Chet stood close by him, the three of them inseparable. Somehow, they actually managed to find Discord, hidden deep within the darker edges of the Everfree Forest. Well, third time was always the charm, and their third search around the area scored them big time.
A low growl emerged from the chaotic beast, and Ruff found himself fearfully squeaking more than Chet himself as the dog felt his paws shaking on the grip of his net.

It was mid-morning when the zebra mare trotted into Ponyville.
Her appearance was striking, even compared to the citizens of the town with their brightly-colored coats and manes: the zebra's coat was a very light grey with black stripes on her legs, tail and mohawk-like mane. A large jagged pattern of black ran down her spine and halfway down her barrel, dark grey sun-like whorls were set upon her flanks and her muzzle was squared off as opposed to having the dainty rounding of most mares.
A series of golden rings encircled her neck from her collarbone to her jaw and another similar set were worn in the middle of her left foreleg. A large golden hoop hanging from each ear completed the exotic picture.
The zebra mare's name was Zecora. And she was becoming annoyed.
A small group of the daily crowd had stopped going about their routines - shopping, visiting friends and such - and were staring openly at her. She was still a source of c

Whoosh and off they went. Rainbow was determined to beat this smug little hedgehog. Why would he just insult her out of nowhere. That was just so not cool. The first stretch was through the apple orchard. Sonic had to bob and weave so he wouldn't smack into a branch or a tree. The fact that his running was causing the apples and leaves to fall weren't really helping him out al all. Thankfully for Rainbow, she has wings. "Think you're the fastest thing in the world you cocky little bobble head?" questioned Rainbow.

It was as if it was second nature to him. He was gaining the lead slowly now. Rainbow saw this and increased her speed. She could not let him win.

She loved every minute of it. She even loved waving happily down at Twilight and the others as she and Discord raced across the sky in a pair of high speed, floating bathtubs.
They'd chased after her as fast as they could but Pinkie and her darling Discord had decided that day that flapping your wings should make you sink instead of fly and any chance they had of catching up quickly vanished.
Now, here she was, curled up between Discord's cool, furry body and Gummy's warm scales.
