In the small town of Ponyville, one can find a rather peculiar building near the outskirts. No, it isn't peculiar because it contains a pony eating monstrosity born within the very depths of the Underworld, but rather because of its peculiar appearance. The exterior was that of a carousel, very similar to the ones that can be found in a carnival. It was called (oddly enough) the Carousel Boutique. What was most interesting, however, was the purpose of this ornate establishment. If you were to ask a noblepony in the most fashionable districts of Canterlot where she got that wonderful dress she was wearing, she would tell you that it came from the same place that had just been mentioned. The Carousel Boutique was well known amongst the elite of Equestria for being the provider of wonderfully fashionable dresses.
Inside the shop was just as extravagant as the outside, if not more. The walls were painted in various shade
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. This was not the chicken coop she had been used to.The Warmth Under Your Wings, part 13 years ago in Drama More Like This
"Finally awake, Squirt?" The orange filly heard from the door behind her. With a happy smile she turned around to see Rainbow Dash lean against the cloudy doorway, forelegs crossed and looking as cool as ever while Tank was hovering beside her with his noisy turtle engine. "You seemed so peaceful w

Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, every last pony from Whinnyapolis was gathered before the stage in the town square; off to the right of the stage stood a line of ponies, including Applejack, all ponies who were willing to provide shelter for the refugees. Twilight made her way up to stand near the front of the crowd, her eyes wide. She knew the number of ponies who had arrived; a total of one hundred and twenty five ponies had wandered into their small town, seeking refuge from the tragedy of their own homes but somehow, having them all crowded into the town square all together made the number seem much, much bigger. Twilight glanced around, trying to catch sight of her friends, but Applejack was the only one clearly visible. She smiled slightly. I guess that I shouldn't be surprised. Rainbow and Fluttershy are helping Nurse Redheart with the injured, Pinkie is still baking, and Rarity no doubt is w

Rainbow Dash's nose twitched. This was an involuntary movement, more of a reflex than anything else, brought on by the perceived presence of something bothering her face. To the barely-conscious pegasus, the sensation was strange. If she had been able to think about it, she would have thought that something was brushing against her closed eyelid. As a last-ditch effort to retain her sleep, her hoof lifted to the level of her eyes in a half-conscious attempt to remove the irritant. Unfortunately, this action had little effect as the slowly-waking pony soon found herself waving her hoof around in front of her face in a dazed early-morning stupor, futilely attempting to ward off the encroachments of the sun as its light streamed in through the window, falling across her still-closed eyes. Groggily, Rainbow Dash's eyelids slowly blinked open, taking in the extent of the bright early-morning light for the first time. She was momentarily confused, groaning and closing her eyes aga

EDIT:I rewrote a good portion of Part 1; I simply wasn't happy with it... and now I am! ^_^ I hope you all enjoy it!
From the book Predictions and Prophecies: The Mare in the Moon-
" Legend has it that on the longest day of the thousandth year, the stars will aid in her escape, and she will bring about nighttime eternal."
The Moon shone down brightly on the mountains and plains of Equestria as it sank lower into the western sky. The night was wearing on, and soon the stars would begin to fade; the eastern sky would brighten, and the Moon would be brought to her rest as the sun rose. The endless cycle of day and night would continue on, as it had for longer than even the most long-lived ponies could remember; but for right now, at this moment, during this night, the Moon continued to shine her soft, silvery light down upon the land, smiling b

In his life, Falling Star had done many things. He'd flown dangerous missions for the Princesses; he'd escaped ambushes by angry griffons, dodged irritated dragons and even faced other pegasi in duels to the death, something that had long since passed out of style in modern Equestria. He had been one of the fastest fliers in all of Equestria in his day, and had even been asked by the leader of the Wonderbolts, an organization that traced its roots back even before Falling Star's time, to join their ranks. He had done many things, and most everything that only a Pegasus could do but he had to admit that working as a weather-pony was not something he had ever done before. Rainbow Dash seemed to thoroughly enjoy her job, as much as she could enjoy work, at least, and Falling Star had to admit that as far as jobs went it was about as straight-forward as you could get. Don't want clouds around? Kick them with your hoove

The sky over Whinnyapolis was dark, despite the fact that it was just shortly after midday. A storm was brewing, the clouds dark and heavy with rain and smoke choking out the sunlight; firelight cast a dark red glow over the ruined city, making it look evil and deserted. In the distance, the red dragon still raged to his heart's content, incinerating buildings and razing them to the ground. Beneath his hood, Dark Star smiled as he watched the carnage. His blood surged with the power he held over the dragon, feeling its hatred and anger as it destroyed the city. He let it wash over him, savoring it; it was all he had, now.
He glanced to his left, down in a valley leading away from the city; at the bottom was the main road leading to and from Whinnyapolis, and it was choked to overflowing with ponies trying to escape the dragon's wrath. Ponies of every age scrambled to put as much distance as they could between themselves
Hearts and Hooves Day - Missing SceneThe sun was shining brightly today. The sky was a clear blue and everywhere you went in the parks of Canterlot, ponies were smiling and laughing.Hearts and Hooves Day - Missing Scene3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But then, they had good reason to be happy. For this was hearts and Hooves day. And on this day, like it was every year, love was in the air. Mares and stallions alike spent the day with their "very special someponies". You could not go two steps forward without laying your eyes on some happy couple enjoying each others company.
But sitting on a grassy hill in the middle of the park, was one pony who did not have a smile upon his face. A white stallion with a blue mane, wearing a rather ornate red uniform of a captain, who sat there on the top of the hill, and was experiencing worry like never before.
Over the course of his time as a member of the royal guard, he had been against many things that might cause other ponies to quake with fear. He had faced down raiding parties of dogs without hesitation. He's fended off hydras and manticores. He
