Exile (Part Two)
Stars tumbled through the sky. The Princess of the Night lay in the castle courtyard alone, watching her carefully crafted heavenscape. It brought no relief to her. Her insides were cold; she felt empty. Her mind was filled with regretful and stinging thoughts. She should have spent more time with Celestia. She should have kept a closer eye on her. She should have been the one who disappeared. She should have, she should have, she should have. In the end she hadn’t.
One star reminded her somewhat of herself... The pole star. It was one of only two of its kind. They were opposites, to be sure, but both shone brightly. All the other stars revolved around them. The pole stars never moved. Apart but equal. One could never see both at the same time. If only...
An idea struck Luna. She stood up and brushed the grass off her coat. As she closed her eyes, a blue glow surrounded her horn. Far over the hor
3 Days Regret - Part 3Applejack lay awake in bed holding her legs around the shivering pegasus by her side. Though Fluttershy remained asleep the earth pony could feel the discomfort in her lover, as if suffering a terrible nightmare. Applejack looked up from the bed to gaze out the window, the outside world was barely visible befitting the early morning before Celestia's sun had fully risen in the sky. The longer she gazed outwards the more her emotions faltered, almost as if feeling pain that wasn't hers. Her thinking cut short before it could elaborate itself as the pony in her hold began to cry.3 Days Regret - Part 33 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"It's ok Flutter, Ah'm here." Applejack held her lover closer covering as much of her trembling body in the embrace as possible. "Ah'm here, it's ok." She could feel Fluttershy accepting the embrace, comforting her, but ultimately not being enough to stop her crying. Even for Fluttershy crying to such an extent due to seemingly nothing wasn't normal, especially after discovering love. As Applejack continued to c

When I wasn't eating or sleeping, I was asking Pinkie Pie details about what she remembered about her, ahem, reunification. I read every book I could on dream symbolism hoping it might help me once I began. I also was sure to check on Trixie repeatedly. She wasn't any trouble. She did anything she was told without a word.

Knock knock knock.
The quiet knocking on the window broke the near-silence in the cottage. Fluttershy blinked her eyes open, sitting up and stretching before looking to her window to identify the source of the noise. She wasn't all that surprised to see her best friend Rainbow Dash hovering just outside, the light of the moon lighting up her multicolored mane. Her expression was also what she expected; she looked troubled, tired, even a little embarrassed. Fluttershy held back a smile and quickly made her way over to the window to unlock it and swing it wide open.
"Hey," Rainbow greeted her, brushing her mane out of her eyes briefly.
Enter the Ponyverse, Chapter 03By the time we got back to Twilight's, She had a whole stack of books piled around her with Fluttershy and Spike in smaller piles of their own. "There's just nothing like him in any of these books, not even in the fictional ones."Enter the Ponyverse, Chapter 033 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"And I can't find any book called 'Esop's Fables' either." Spike said, still sorting through his pile.
It took a second for Twilight to see that we had arrived, and after a quick explanation of what she knew and was trying to do, Rraity agreed that teaching me would be helpful. We soon got back to her butique allowing the three of them to look deeper into the matter in peace, "alright Bailey, I want you to close your eyes and clear your mind.... Now imagine the needle on my desk were to be lifted up by you." I peeked through my eyes and saw the needle she was mentioning, thinking rather hard I felt a strange feeling almost like a flowing energy from my forhead was leaking out of the top of my head, and while imagining the needle lifting streight up, I peeked

Soarin beat his wings, forcing them to carry his body for just a minute more. He gritted his teeth, straining to give no sign of how much this pained him. If he was going to lead the squad, this pretense of invincibility was necessary. The acting captain coasted on an updraft, using its energy to glide in to the training field. From what he could see, the team was already there, with the exceptions of Fleetfoot and Spitfire.
The squad hung around in bunches on the field, lazing about. Surely the stallions should be a bit more skittish than this? But what he had thought to be a violent panic had, in fact, merely been a localized pocket of mayhem. The stallions here hadn't been affected, although they seemed to be more alert than the mares; everypony here was unaware of what had happened over at the other side of the base. Well, that would change pretty quickly. Gossip spread fast here. He'd better take the chance to tell them the truth now, before the stories reached them.
Enter the Ponyverse, Chapter 02We went into the house and I saw that the inside of this tree was simply hollowed out with bookcases carved out on the sides with a staircase to the upper levels. Spike was not seen, I assumed he was on the second floor as Twilight called for him, "Spike! I need you right now!"Enter the Ponyverse, Chapter 023 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Just a second." It sounded as if he was rearranging the books as they dropped with bangs as they hit the floor. It only took him about a minute before coming down to see what Twilight wanted.
"Spike, I need you to get the dictionary and look somethings up for me."
"Sure, what do you want me to look up?"
"I want you to look up 'eemale', 'kompyuter', 'tivi', 'teksting', and 'dimenshon' " Twilight demanded spike as he sat the dictionary down on the table on the far side of the room. She flicked her head as her horn began to glow again, this time a book came off the shelves and opened in front of her, an atlas, "You said Orlando Florida. right?"
"That's right, but I don't think you're going to ever find it."
Prologue, Chapter 1Ponyville was a strange place. Good, of course, but strange.Prologue, Chapter 13 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Then again, in the context of Equestria in general, it was hardly strange at all.
Equestria itself was something unique. A kingdom of ponies and some other species mixed in here and there that got along with one another in perfect harmony. The records in Canterlot had the proof; there hadn't been a violent altercation between anypony in over three thousand years. It was peaceful, introverted, sheltered from what lay outside its boundaries by its beloved rulers: Princess Celestia and the recently returned Princess Luna.
However, besides Canterlot and possibly Manehattan, Ponyville had always been the poster child town of Equestria. It was the manifestation of how Equestrians were expected to act; politely, gently, peacefully. It was for this reason that Celestia had sent Twilight Sparkle, her star pupil, to this town in order to find friends.
Twilight Sparkle herself, however, was not in any way harmonious at the moment. She w

Twilight was doing her best to understand what the three pictures before her meant. Each picture was a distorted mess of color and shapes. At times she thought she had been able to make out the vague shape of a pony or some other shape that she could identify as an object, but it quickly moved back into being a distorted blob.
"I can't make heads or tails of this." Twilight as groaning as she looked back and forth, "How exactly does this spell work? This is my second time doing it and I'm STILL confused." The book didn't explain any further than how to perform the spell and its purpose. Was it supposed to be easy to figure out? Should something have been obvious to her? There were no instructions on how to interpret the pictures, or what she could do to help!
It really seemed like she was purposely being kept out, as if she wasn't allowed to see what each of her frie

The monster laughed as Felix and the others ran off.
"You think you can get by me?" his voice was crazed, sarcastic and questioning. His presence made me tense; his blank white eyes unmeetable.
"We don't have to get by you, just distract you," I responded, keeping my voice steady and confident. He laughed again before charging us. I ducked out of the way quickly and stood next to Martin, who nodded silently. Mayo tried to kick his legs out, but the monster turned and hit him with a chain. I ran at him while he laughed and swung a good hit across his face. He stumbled, his back hitting the wall behind him.
"You've got a good arm, I take it you're a lesbian?" he asked spitefully. My face heated with anger and embarrassment, and I hit him again. He responded my wrapping his chain around my leg and pulling my feet out from under me. My head hit the ground with a resounding crack, and my vision blurred. The last thing I remember was Martin running forward and knocking the monst
Twilight's Comet chapter ITwilight's CometTwilight's Comet chapter I3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The soft, delicate green grass that spanned the meadows outside of Ponyville blew gently in waves with a mid-day breeze. In the middle of one such meadow, a Pegasus Pony came in for a landing. He had sea-green eyes, a slightly dark grey coat, along with a contrastingly bright red mane and a rather thin tail of different shades of blue starting out bright at its base and becoming darker further out, like the tail of a comet. It was from his tail that he had gotten his name: Comet. His cutie mark was an image of a comet passing through the sub-constellation the Big Dipper. His front half and legs were covered by the uniform of the school he had been attending, a blue jacket with a yellow color and yellow cuffs and an image of a compass pointing due north on both sides. He was breathing rather deeply and his wings were now drooping to the ground, for he had been flying for a while. Also, he realized that he was s

The pegasus's ear twitched. She tried not to move on her napping branch.
"Rainbow Dash, wake up!" the young voice yelled again.
No movement. Stay perfectly still and maybe-
"Rainbow Dash, wake up!" The inflection was remarkably similar.
The voice apparently wasn't taking any hints. The cyan mare rolled over on the branch, shedding the pink blanket to the ground. She lowered her head closer to the ground, not caring to register who she was staring at before responding. She had a pretty good guess already. "What?"
"I wanted to invite you to the clubhouse. We're trying to earn our Cutie Marks the cool way today!"
The pegasi stared at each other. Dash, still through bleary eyes, made out a close cropped purple mane on the orange filly. At least it's not rainbow.
"Sorry," Dash began, "I'm a bit too busy to help you get your Cutie Mark right now."
"But you're the coolest pony in Ponyville. You're the most super ultra extra..." Scootaloo trailed off,

Visit from the Pink Mare
Pinkie took a gulp as she stared at the door that led to a separate chamber from the rest of the prison. The cells were officially classified as 'Solitary Confinement', however the only thing that made them 'solitary' was that they were separated from the other cells and most criminals only stayed in them for a few days for misbehaving. But from what she'd been told the criminals kept themselves in good terms to avoid coming here because of the one prisoner that was kept inside at all times. None of them wanted to be in the same area as him.
"You seem nervous and I can understand why. There's still time to back out, if you don't want to do this." Came the reassuring yet regal voice of Princess Celestia, who turned to look at the smaller pink mare standing next to her before the door.

Fluttershy stepped into the small tub, feeling the water wash over her entire body. Then, without taking a breath, she lowered herself to be completely submerged into the water. She curled up into a small ball at the bottom of the tub as the last of her air escaped from her lungs.
An image of her father appeared before her, as she smiled. No matter how much her body or mind screamed, she wouldn't give it the air it needed.
Fluttershy slowly slipped away, disappearing into a quiet, dark, watery world.
After Angel could no longer hear Fluttershy, he knew he had to act quickly. Unfortunately, he knew there was no way for him to get past the locked door, into the bathroom, and even if he could, he had no way of lifting Fluttershy out of the tub. Not knowing what else he could do, he dashed outside, Fluttershy's suicide note in his paw, looking for somepony, anypony, to help him.
Rainbow Dash had had a rather unsettling day thus far. She knew Fluttershy had been having some unus

"Where am I?" she said out loud.
The last thing she could remember was having breakfast with her dragon friend Spike, when it felt like something hard, and maybe made out of metal, hit her in the back of the head. As everything started to go dark she heard Spike shout out something. She couldn't remember what the little purple dragon said too well, but she thought she heard him shout out something that sounded like, "Another Twilight!?" but that was impossible unless she used the time travel spell again, and even if she did, then why would she attack herself?
Twilight struggled against the ropes before she realized she could just use her magic to get free. Twilight started to channel her magical energy into her horn, but it only glowed for

A soft chill blew through the brisk winter's day. A blanket of snow covered the ground far below, as Celestia's chariot soared through the sky.
'What a beautiful day for a wedding.' Celestia thought with a smile sprawled across her face. It had been far too long since she had last been able to attend a wedding, her royal duties always coming first However, with Luna back she could afford to take time off on such short notice. Plus no one would blame her for going to a wedding where the two being wed each wielded one of the Elements of Harmony.
As Celestia's chariot grew closer to the quaint town of Ponyville, her regal eyes scanned the snow banked town, easily catching sight of the pacing lavender unicorn that stood out from the white backdrop around her. Celestia let out a soft chuckle to herself, knowing exactly how her student fussed and worried over every little detail, and now doubt a wedding between her friends was going to have her nerves on end even more than usual.

There were groups of ponies, mostly colts and fillies, wandering around the town just to look at the colorful carnage. Some of the buildings' owners stood stunned and staring at the eyesore that their business or home had become. Some had hiked up their tails and set right to work scrubbing the walls or repainting. The hardware stores were quickly selling out of paint and cleaning supplies.
The Mayor had taken one look at the clashing argyle that now coated the town hall and had fainted dead away. They were carrying her off on a stretcher to Ponyville Urgent Care, half conscious and muttering to herself about playing tennis with a giant blancmange.

When Rainbow Dash awoke she found herself in a big cave. Where the hay am I? The last thing I knew was this crazy monster chasing me. When she touched her head she quickly removed her hoof because of the pain. Ouch!, she thought, but she could feel bandages around her head. Somepony must have had treated her injuries and bandaged them.
Rainbow Dash was lying on a hay bed with a warm blanked over her body to keep her warm. Next to the bed were laying fruits, water and even some medicinal herbs, which were perfect to cure headache. Moreover the medical herbs were even able to increase the healing process.
She already knew these kinds of special medical herbs because of her training. Some years ago she had worked on a new trick but she had made a mistake while planning for the trick. The result had been that she had crashed into a tree close to Fluttershy's home and she had hurt herself. Although the injuries weren't serious, the pain had b

The stars were all shining brightly in the familiar stargazing spot and a certain pegasus pony had made sure there were no clouds to ruin her date. A cian colored pegasus flew overhead making sure the clouds were correctly aligned to get a perfect view of the stars from the top of Star-storm Hill, just outside of Ponyville. The fastest and bravest pony in Equestria finished setting the clouds and went back down to the Picnic she had laid out for herself and her date. She wasn't the one to wait for anypony, but she let it slide this once, considering that the rest of Ponyville was in a massive monsoon.
"Grrr, where is she!" The pegasus grunted as she laid back on the blanket and starred up at the stars. 'I really did a good job, I hope she
