Start Spreading the NewsFluttershy was sleeping soundly unaware that she was being watched. It had only been a week since her accident that resulted in her accidentally confessing her feelings to Pinkie while she stood outside Fluttershy's bedroom door. As the first rays of sunlight shone through her window waking her, she stretched and smiled warmly as, for the last seven days, her first sight was the same as when those bandages were removed. On her nightstand was a picture frame, and inside it was the note Pinkie Pie had written telling her that she loved her as well. With a smile on her still sleepy face, "I love you, Pinkie." A small squeak escaped her with what she heard next.Start Spreading the News4 years ago in Romance More Like This
"I love you too, Fluttershy." Pinkie smiled as the yellow pegasus spun around, became tangled within the blanket, and tumbled over the side.
Fluttershy was on her back with her hind legs on the bed and looking up to the ceiling. She smiled softly when Pinkie's head looked over the edge.

A Sight for Really Sore EyesSweet Apple Acres was cool this time of year and as usual Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash were in a pranking mood. Normally, they would aim for Applejack, but this time they were targeting her older brother Big Macintosh. They had set a surprise for him on a path they knew he would take eventually. The prank was that once he hit a tripwire they had set up a pulled back branch would be released and hit him in the chest. For Pinkie and Rainbow it was set at face level, but Big Mac was taller not to mention that his yoke would protect him so he was not in danger. They only wanted to surprise or scare the quiet stallion. What happened was still a surprise but was not fun.A Sight for Really Sore Eyes4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Fluttershy was walking along Ponyville square when a sudden craving for an apple pastry came over her. She immediately headed to Sugarcube Corner to find Pinkie Pie.

"Ah'm sorry, wha--?"
Applejack turned towards the blue pegasus. This was becoming slightly annoying.
"I uh... I said that you did a fine job.... today, I mean," replied Rainbow Dash. She quickly pointed at the nearest apple tree. "The apples, all gone. Ha! I never knew how you could get them all down... you know, with a single kick."
Applejack tilted her head to the right. This was surpassing annoying, sliding towards worrying.
"Are you sure you're okay, Rainbow? Y'all seem a bit…" She stopped mid-sentence, not really knowing how to continue.
"Okay? Pff, of course I'm okay! I was just... you know..." she said, ending her phrase with a wide, awkward smile. The pegasus shifted a bit, trying to arrange the bag she was carrying so it wouldn't fall off her back.
Applejack frowned a bit, but decided to ignore this altogether. She had plenty of chores to do today and she had no time for Rainbow's silly pranks or less-than-inspired jokes.

The sky darkened over Ponyville as Fluttershy finished up her rounds in the Ponyville Animal Hospital. It had been 3 years since it was built but she still felt like it was a dream come true. The town electing her as the manager of the entire building came as no surprise to anypony, except Fluttershy. As Fluttershy finished checking the medicine cabinet, she gave a small and delicate yawn. She would need to go home soon. She didn't want to be sleepy when she was dealing with patients tomorrow.
Fluttershy exited the building and began her walk to her cottage. The cool night air gently draped across Fluttershy as she slowly walked among Ponyville's streets. Thoughts drew her into a much longer walk than previously planned and soon she was humming to herself. The song she was humming was an old pegasus lullaby that her mother used to lull her to sleep with. As her mind wandered she began to think of her mother. How graceful and kind she was... how honest and... Fluttershy drew

"Wind?" Dash licked the back of her forehoof before raising it high above her into the air.
"Good! Clouds?" she called to herself. Looking from atop the cloud where she was perched, she noted the empty sky around her.
"Clear! Cheering section?" The blue pegasus sat up, ears alert as if expecting a round of praise. After a few silent seconds, she looked over the edge of her cloud at the ground below. "I said 'cheering section?'"
Rainbow Dash could just barely make out the yellow and pink blur. Fluttershy, sitting peacefully on the grass far below the blue pegasus' cloud, shot up to attention. "Oh, um,... yay!" she replied, though barely above a whisper.
"Ugh..." Dash placed a hoof over her face. She knew the pegasus below her had the heart, but her voice usually hid it behind meek expressions. Nevertheless, her cheering section was ready. "Check."

Everything going just as planned. I’ve released Spike, making sure he thinks he went to Canterlot, and it appears that the target has made a good relationship with Twilight. A simple spell was all it took to make them instant friends! For some unexplainable reason, they already had some kind of bond, and all I had to do was tweak that with my magic, and poof! Friends. What that bond is, I don’t know, but it doesn’t matter. Soon, Trey will be mine, forever!

Sprawled uncomfortably on the floor and covered in books, Trey painfully raised himself up into a sitting position. His whole body ached from the force of the impact, and from the books which kindly decided to fall upon him. He leaned against the shelf and shuffled the books on the floor away from him so he could sit comfortably. He was then suddenly greeted by the menacing glower of Twilight Sparkle, her horn glowing a deep, dark purple.
Trey jerked away from the sudden hostility, startled. He subsequently fell on more books, bringing pain to his back. He sat back up, only to have Twilight’s fierce glare right before his eyes

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 door slammed shut, sending shivers through the walls of the library. The sun sat at a high point in the sky signaling that noon was nearing. In front of the recently closed door stood Twilight, shaking as tears streamed down her face, creating dark streaks in her lavender fur.
Confusion overwhelmed her, her heart felt heavy, her mind giving way to chaos. A flare of anger surged through her, her eyes screwed shut and her horn began to glow. The sound started off as a soft rustling but grew into a near thundering sound. In a flash of pages every book lining the library walls flew from the shelves as if each book was attached to a jet packet. Some slammed into walls; some went to the floor, others finding their resting place on another shelf. One book in particular collided with the head of a small purple dragon. Spike, who had been making his way to the front door after he first heard the door slamming was blindsided by a leather bound book and brought to

Ditzy Doo paused in making dinner, the grey pegasus's body stiffening as her eyes widened in shock. Turning, she looked at her daughter Dinky Doo and blinked slowly. She held her breath for a moment, slowly counting to five before letting it out. In her head, she had known this day would come, but she had hoped her little filly would be older.
Ditzy Doo knew about how the other foals made fun of her due to her mother being 'special'. As cruel as the foals Dinky's age were, they would grow out of this stage eventually. The real painful barbs were from the mares and stallions around town. The aghast looks and the back-handed compliments towards them both when they were out shopping or having dinner. The whispered conversations and darting looks. That hurt them both far more because at times they would even say such things to their faces.
But they long ago stopped letting it phase them. Dinky knew all too well her mother understood and comprehended far more than t

MLPFiM Season 1 Revised OrderMLPFiM Season 1 Revised Order4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
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
