Elements of the Heart Chapter 1 - Arrival Twilight could only stare at the ponies in front of her. A strange white unicorn wearing a blue hat and coat, another was a black earth pony wearing a long green jacket and an orange hat to match it. It was the third pony that surprised her the most, a beige Alicorn wearing a red shirt underneath a black half zipped jacket. All three smiled at her the Alicorn speaking up.Elements of the Heart Chapter 1 - Arrival3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The Alicorn had a cutie mark that appeared to be two large keys crossed over a heart. The Earth pony had a large shield as a cutie mark while the unicorn had what must have been a staff. Twilight had only seen such staff once before in Canterlot said to belong to Star Swirl the Bearded. She sat down in front of the Alicorn who smiled at her.

Oh you found me! That's wonderful! I was worried that you wouldn't be able to. It's so nice of you to want to talk to me again. It really is wonderful to know others care about what you have to say isn't it?

The pegasus flew outside to find a very frightened-looking Fluttershy cowering on her porch. Instantly, Rainbow Dash's stomach twisted and she bit back a flinch. She hated seeing that fear. "Are you okay, Fluttershy?" she asked, approaching her hesitantly.
Fluttershy nodded silently, then jumped slightly as a clap of thunder resonated across the darkening skies. Dash looked past her to the skyscape. The weather pegasi were out and about, busily bouncing rain and lightning out of the cloud cover. The rainbow pegasus could have kicked herself. How could she have forgotten the weather patrol was making a storm tonight?! Another clap of thunder boomed, and Fluttershy squeaked, shivering.
"Fluttershy you flew all the way up here in a storm?" Rainbow's house was above the cloudline, so the storm raged beneath her home, not over it. The sk

A squeak to her left made Dash fly over to one side of Fluttershy's house, where she discovered her friend struggling to escape from a tiny wooden house that was obviously meant for some kind of small animal. Angel Bunny was holding onto the filly's front hooves, straining to remove her from the miniature doorway.
"Fluttershy?" Rainbow asked, flying to her and helping the yellow filly escape from her wooden confinement. "What are you doing in there?"
"Iah!" Fluttershy squealed as she popped free and tumbled on top of her liberator. She fluttered off of the squashed Rainbow Dash, blushing as she helped her friend up. "I'm sorry, Rainbow Dash. You see, Angel Bunny lets me spend the night in there with him whenever I have a nightmare."
"A nightmare?" Rainbow Dash frowned, studying her timid friend. Fluttershy had nightmares?

This house has never felt more empty. Once upon a time, at Hearth Warming's Eve, it would have had a small hill of packages, the best toys bought straight from Manehatten, the finest dresses, and the most expensive horseshoes and ties.
Now it was cluttered with furniture no pony used, filled with empty rooms, and stuffed with antiques with no pony to look at them. It was the first Hearth Warming's Eve, and Day, that I spent all alone.

FlutterDash--Pilot Pt. 3Rainbow Dash's eyes fluttered open the next morning to greet a clear, crisp sky. All the clouds had been cleared away after the storm of the previous night, having done their job and washed clean the air over Ponyville. She smiled contentedly; the morning after a storm was always the most beautiful. This particular morning was made even lovelier by the other warm presence lying against Dash in her cloud bed. She smiled warmly. Fluttershy was still sleeping, so Dash laid her head back down against her, sighing contentedly. Nothing had happened last night, just a few soft, shy kisses. The blue pegasus had burned with desire, but since it was their first night together, she hadn't wanted to offend the sensitive Fluttershy.FlutterDash--Pilot Pt. 34 years ago in Romance More Like This

I blinked. Where was I now? Everything was a big white void. I didn't see anypony else.
I looked down at myself. The claw marks had healed over, though they did leave some recognizable scars. Guess I was going to have to rely on Fluttershy to do the modeling after all. Too bad, all that attention, all those ponies looking at me, it appealed to me, even if it scared 'Shy silly.
Then I noticed, almost passively, that I wasn't quite all there anymore. I was still standing just fine, but one of my wings and part of my hind left leg were turning into little pieces of light before my eyes and floating away, becoming impossible to tell from the white void.

There had been several interruptions of her performance; however, she could not remember what exactly happened yet. She could not remember why she could not remember, until she winced in pain as her head throbbed. It all started coming back to her.
The Gala had begun like it always had; posh ponies from all over Equestria flocked to socialise. Though, not all of them were quite as posh. As that night was drawing to a close, a pink earth pony had walked in and subsequently began to dance around like a lunatic, and jump onto stage where Octavia played. She did her best to continue playing as this annoying pony continued her misdemeanours throughout the crowd.

Sunburst lingered in a dusty, long unused room of his home, revisiting memories from nearly twenty years before. His golden-yellow coat and red mane caught the light of the setting sun and bathed the wall to his left in yellow and pink. Against the same wall was a dresser, on top of which sat several framed pictures of a mare whose coat and mane colors mirrored those shining on the wall.
The scenes in the pictures varied. One was of the mare stretching her pastel yellow wings and looking on the viewer with a smile. Another as she ran a brush through her pink mane, one eye focused towards the camera and a pleased smile on her face. She was clearly very pregnant and was practically radiating love. At a glance one could tell it had been taken in the same room, a brush next to the frame with several long strands of pink hair further proof; it was the same brush from the picture. Several other photos were clustered with the rest, all of the same mare. There was not a single p

"Applebucking season?" asked her friend, a blue, rainbow-maned Pegasus who fluttered in the air beside her.

Twilight Sparkle"Alone In A Group"
Greetings, my name is Twilight Sparkle. I am a unicorn and I am -not- a goth. These are my natural colors. Yes I am the personal apprentice of Princess Celestia and holder of the central Element of Harmony 'Magic' and basically the leader of the Elemental Harmony Squad (Pinkie or Rainbow came up with that name, not me).
Huh? I am NOT a Mary Sue!
1) If I was a Mary Sue I'd have been teaching my new friends what it -meant- to be friends when I first came to Ponyville instead of the other way around.
2) My spell to redirect the parasprite's hunger wouldn't have backfired.
3) My failsafe spell wouldn't have failed.
4) Also I would have defeated an actually Ursa Major instead of pacifying an Ursa Minor.
5) I'd have won the Running of the Leaves race instead of coming in fifth place.
6) I wouldn't have a nervous breakdown every time a plan of mine blows up in my face.

Her visit to Ponyville had gone well enough in the end, but only because she had deigned to visit on the one day ponies wanted to be scared by her. The citizens of Equestria had yet to really accept their second Princess, even in her own home; the frightened looks and furtive whispers from the courtiers in the castle were bad enough, even with Celestia there to set them straight, and Luna knew it would only be worse in the city proper.

The Everfree forest hung menacingly over the three ponies' heads as Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie stepped cautiously into the trees. Though performing a daring rescue and bringing Fluttershy back from the brink of calamity had seemed like a gallant, brilliant idea a few minutes ago, now, as the first line of overgrown trees closed in behind them, the companions were beginning to have second thoughts. Pinkie, per usual, was the least effected; she retained her standard bouncy gait, and was certainly not as jumpy as the other mares, who ducked behind each other at the slightest rustle in the nearby bushes.
After several minutes of aimless wandering, the path they had been following slowly began to dissipate into the surrounding forest. Rarity stopped and frowned, surveying the ground before her with a doubtful expression.
"Ladies I don't think we've come the correct way." She flicked her violet hair out of her face and sighed heavily, just as upset about her drooping curls as

A fat tear dripped slowly down Rarity's cheek as she drew a shuddering breath into her slightly air-deprived lungs. She turned her eyes to the ceiling to stem the flow of tears now following after the first, shaking her tightly curled hair away from her face as she did so. Careful to avoid the pins scattered around her from when magic had failed her and dropped a box full of them, she sat down hard in front of a sewers dummy, empty of any scraps of fabric; the sight of the blank face staring into the distance only made her feel worse, and her crying intensified to the point where her chest was heaving between sobs.
Only a few minutes earlier, the glamorous mare was enjoying a regular day in springtime Ponyville. She had just finished making a new spring frock, adorned with a waterfall of beautifully crafted fabric flowers and ribbons, and was busy showing it off around the quaint little town when she had stumbled across her five best friends; Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Fl

Sure enough, Rarity was curled up beside her, still asleep, her thick, slightly mussed up mane shielding her eyes from the golden light of morning.

A soft noise from above their heads shook Rarity and Rainbow Dash out of their stunned silence. The forest, already murky from the overhanging boughs, was darkening slowly around them, making the owl hooting in the distance that much creepier. It was then they realized how long they must have been in the forest; it was still morning when they had entered, and twilight was already upon them.

As slowly as possible, she opened her eyes and rubbed the sleep from them.

It seemed surreal to her, the ruling Lady of Canterlot.

Rainbow Dash Character ReviewBold, brave, daring and tenacious...these are words that one would usually associate with Rainbow Dash in "Friendship is Magic". But how about adorable, innocent and, at times, insecure? Rainbow Dash may be the sporty member of the group and the most tomboyish female within the mane cast, but this does not detract from the fact that, like every other pony, she has a multi-layered personality that allows her to express all sorts of emotions, both positive and negative. Some are naturally the sort of temperaments that one would normally match Rainbow Dash with, but it would be a great injustice to merely suggest that Rainbow Dash is concerned with competitions and little else.Rainbow Dash Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

As she walked along the road to the Everfree forest, Rarity fought to control her racing mind. The presence of her two friends close behind her was reassuring, of course, but there was always the chance that they would be too late to help her if something bad happened, or the danger would hurt them as well. There was, however, nothing that could be done about the situation other than what had already been established, and Rarity herself wasn't as helpless as many might think.
Soon, too soon in Rarity's mind, the dark edge of the forest loomed before the friends, a stark contrast from the grass and rolling hills around Ponyville. Glancing behind her, Rarity saw that the other two mares had already vanished into a small crop of bushes several yards from where road and forest met. Already feeling very alone, the white unicorn slowed her pace, sweeping her gaze left and right across the tree line.

She could see Twilight's library approaching, easily spotted since it was the only building that was literally carved into a live tree.
