Dear Princess Celestia,
I don't suppose I'll be writing you any more letters after this. Over the years I've said all there is to say about anything worth saying, and saying it again would be useless. Has it really been fifty years since you sent me to Ponyville? It seems like just yesterday I was meeting my friends for the first time, and we were battling with the Elements of Harmony to stop Nightmare Moon. Ah, those were the days. It's been years now since I've had the strength to go on those kinds of adventures. These days I need Spike to help me get up and down the stairs. I'm not as young as I once was.
I'm really writing this to make sure I haven't forgotten to say anything to you in my past letters. I'm very sorry I haven't been sending them as frequently, but I feel like I've already done all there is to do. I know there's always more to learn, but I can't always get out there and learn it. Most of the things I learn now come from books alone. Of course I still see my friend

The Cake Theory
"Baby Cakes," the latest episode for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, evolved our understanding of the Equestrian world in more ways than one. Now, thanks to pony genes, we're able to see how two Earth ponies can give birth to a Pegasus and Unicorn without any immediate relations to ether race. Answer: Recessive traits. Thank you 8th grade biology! However, there are some questions that still need answering. I personally have a theory that pertains to each Cake baby, so let's slice right in!
Now, we're all familiar with Twilight Sparkle's struggle to learn and advance in magic as a young filly. In the episode 23 of season 1 - "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" - where we see her struggle to even turn a page with magic. And that's with the enormous amount of studying she puts in. So why then is it so hard for Twilight Sparkle - Celestia's prime student and the Element of Magic - to learn what she needed to and got to where she

It was cold winters day at sweet apple acers, and the day looked to maybe develop some snow. A breeze came over the farm and nearly blew Apple Jacks hat off. She quickly grabbed it and put it back on her head. Apple Jack was sitting near the barn, and having just finished her work for the day and was contemplating what to do. She glanced up at the clouds in the sky and let out a long breath seeing it stream out in front of her because of the winter chill. Apple Jack thought to her self, ' I recon I aught to head on down to Ponyville and see what my friends are all up to.' So after carefully putting up all the apples she had gathered she began to trot on down to Ponyville.
Meanwhile in Ponyville Pinkie Pie was jumping up and down even more excitedly than usual. "Hey hey Dashie look! It's starting to snow! See see see see seeseesee!!!!!!" said Pinkie Pie as she leapt up trying to catch a snowflake in her mouth. Rainbow Dash quickly leaped up and pulled Pinkie back into the bus

You didn't even know he had one.
There was definitely the first time he actually talked to you-
That at least could be remembered clearly.
You were both still young; Karkat was in most of your classes during school. He would sometimes see you, but neither of you really liked to talk, or talked to each other. Then one day, he remembered, you hadn't been in class for the past week.
When you finally showed up, you were marauded by girls, all worried and shit. After a moment of them squealing over every word you said, and you only replied with such quiet replies. After the last thing you said, no one seemed to speak.
"She's fine," you had said, then quieter: "She's fine." You then brushed past them, stopping at your seat beside of his. "Um, sorry, but do you think you could maybe pull the chair out for me, please?" You asked him, stumbling over almost every word. "I, er, my, shoulder, is, ummmmm...

That thought was interrupted by a loud car horn sounding close by. You looked up as a large black van came fast around the parking lot corner and jerked to a halt in the road in front of you. The shotgun seat window rolled down, and your eyes met with the eye-bagged stare of Karkat Vantas.
While you couldn't say you were well acquainted with the young man, you two did share a bit of history. Only a few weeks ago he'd been a customer at the convenience store you had until recently been employed at, at the time when a large thug came in and demanded that you open the cash register. Saving the day, Karkat had grabbed a bottle of the closest thing to him, and slammed the man twice his size with it. He was out cold in an instant.
Needless to say, you decided then to never again doubt the wonder of the cheap soda.

Silver Spoon sighed as she played with the food that had been brought to her. It wasn't the first time the chefs at that restaurant had gotten her order wrong, but the first time they did, she got on the waiter's case about it, and that made her feel really embarrassed. If she were more assertive, she would have demanded he take it back to correct the mistake. Instead, she sat and stared at it, hoping she would somehow find it in her to bare its taste. She was paying for the meal either way. Maybe she'd just box it up and take it with her. Maybe one of her parents will eat it during the very little time they're home.
Silver never got to spend much time with her parents. They were always very busy with their jobs, but it was because of those jobs that Silver could have anything she wanted. Despite the

Sister I cry to you, please come rescue me
Drowning myself in misery I cannot sleep
Banished to the place where I feel alone
I beg, I pled, I want to come home
I cannot lay my soul to rest
With the empty pain I feel in my chest
My color slowly turning to grey
My patience slowly fading away
I thought you loved me and cared
By telling me you would always be there
But now I see where you lacked
I thought you always had my back
My vengeance growing and turning cold
The days getting older, centuries old
If you don't love me than no one will
I'm tired of feeling sick and ill
The Luna you love is buried away
Tonight shall begin another new day
Nightmare Moon shall rise from hate
Before it's too late

The pink earth pony, Pinkie Pie (somewhere in all her blather Soarin had caught her name), led, or rather, dragged Rainbow and Soarin through Ponyville. From what he could see of the town, it was remarkably undamaged considering the dragon assault. He could see a few ponies patching up tiles or sweeping away debris, but all of the big, heavy duty damage had been cleared up. This was strange, considering it was only a day after the dragon's disappearance.
Pinkie Pie let go of his arm, and Soarin stood up, massaging his poor limb. The building which she had plopped them in front was a tree, with a book sign pointing out its use as a library. Resisting Pinkie's attempts to shove him through the front door, Soarin waited until Rainbow was upright again before moving into the tree.
Inside was just about what he'd thought it would be like. Same as any library, books everywhere, and a couple of ponies wandering about. Soarin thought he recognised everypony, all five of Rainbow's friends were

"What do you think will happen after I put the bitch in her place?" he asked you. You shrug and reply, "I don't know. No one's ever one that to Taylor before. We'll just have to find out."
As you approach the school, all the students stop what thy were doing and look towards Karkat. The all moved out of you and his way as you went towards the door. Wow. That really must have made a mark on the student body. Both of you were quite confused as well. Once you made it to your home room door, you could see Taylor waiting for you right in the middle of the classroom. She still seemed to have a pretty bad bruise from last time.

As you all know, Fall Weather Friends should come before Winter Wrap-Up.
There are many concerns about episode chronology when considering season one as a whole. There are a bunch of monsters at the start of the season, while the CMC take over during the second half. The first half is pretty AJ/RD/PP heavy, while the last half is overloaded with Rarity and Fluttershy. The Gala episode has an Everyone Laughs ending, but to me it feels tacked on and anti-climactic, and doesn't work as a season finale as well as Cutie Mark Crusaders would. (S2 update: we now know the Discord episodes were produced as the season/series finale.)
If we take the air order as the chronological order:
episodes 1-10 summer/fall, year 1000 of the Summer Sun Celebration
11 Winter Wrap-Up 1001
12 Call Of The Cutie 1001
13 Fall Weather Friends 1001
14-26: spring/summer 1002

Her brother Big Mac was with tacking Granny Smith to her appointment to check her blood pressure, meanwhile Rainbow Dash was busy filing up the left over holes in the sky, her last one was near Applejacks barn, but when she was finished and about to leave it started raining, she was to far from her house to make it back before it started poring so Applejack brought her inside the barn, but with Big Mac and Granny Smith in the doctors and AppleBloom was with Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle at Fluttershys, the two ponies were all alone...

Excerpts from the Candid Sayings of Celestia as recorded by her friends
The mist that guarded the entrance to the pegasi's lair whisked around Celestia as she plunged in, leaving a cool, wet touch. The world vanished in the cloud at the cave's entrance, swallowed completely by fog so thick she thought it might be solid beneath her hoof were she to reach out and touch it. Laden and dense with water, the air felt heavy and cloying. Tiny droplets of moisture clung to Celestia's eyelashes, coat, and stray hairs. It muffled all sound except her breathing and the hoof falls of her and her sister; obscured all sight as effective as a curtain.
Any second now, she'd meet the pegasi. If she didn't walk blindly into a wall first.

Act III, Part 3 - Assignments
For Applejack, the first few days were a blur.
It sounded cliché, but that really was the only way to describe it. The memories, at least the ones she could recall with any sort of clarity, had no starting or ending points, simply fading into one another, occasionally separated by the calm darkness of sleep. Everything was hazy until she tried to focus her eyes, at which point the sudden sharpness of it nearly blinded her. Voices were stretched out and distorted, and she couldn't tell who was speaking to her, other than that the voice was uncannily familiar.
Eventually, she began to feel good enough to make sense of what was going on around her. She was lying in a bed in a barren room. Wherever she was, she wasn't in the mountains anymore. Vaguely she recalled her conversation with this world's Fluttershy. The pegasus had mentioned taking her to Sweet Apple Acres, but this di

The Ballad of Big Mac
Come hear the tale of Macintosh,
Big Mac to all his friends,
the love he won, but almost lost,
of fame that never ends.
He spent his days out in a field
not far from Ponyville,
gath'ring his orchard's fruitful yield
with all his bucking skill.
"Big Mac, you take care now y'hear!"
said A. J. in alarm,
"Keep buckin' like that an' Ah've a fear
You'll do yerself some harm!"
Big Mac replied, "Don' worry none,"
as apples fell like rain,

He bucked the tree, and with a crash
the center of it split.

and in the quiet medical tent

despite Nurse Redheart's zeal.
