Chapter 1 - Burnished Silver
Twilight broke on the horizon, the sun peeking above tree tops and mountains as it rose. Small rays of light drifted through Twilight Sparkle's bedroom, falling upon her face. As slowly as possible, she opened her eyes and rubbed the sleep from them. Rousing herself, Twilight slipped out of the downy bed that had always seemed much too large for her, and walked to the window to gaze out at the land. It seemed surreal to her, the ruling Lady of Canterlot.
Why me? she wondered, as was her daily tradition. Why did everypony choose me? I never asked for this... this... Rainbow Dash had always told her it was an honor, but she could never bring herself to believe that. Twilight looked out the window, nearly all of Equestria in sight. The land she had been chosen to rule and to protect, and the land that was divided and torn apart.
Twilight turned from the window with a sigh. Walking across the massive roomformerly Princes

Jet Set and Upper Crust, here - not to put you on the spot,
But when it comes to even rhyming, we're the best in Canterlot.
So get off the stage, little filly, you're cheapening the view,
The last thing that we need is to rap battle you.
We're ponies of class, you're beneath road kill.
We're the upper crust, you're just some pony from Ponyville.
Ponies, please; you're living in denial!
I can out rap you both and i shall do it with style!
As for your rhymes, is that the best you can bring?
They're - how shall i say - the worst possible thing!
You want to rap battle with me? The conclusions foregone.
But if we must, bring your best, because - it is ON!
So you want to throw down? Well, we'll show you the biz,
Then you can show everypony what whining really is.

A rap battle with you? This will be a snap!
I'll buck you up and kick you out and then i'll take a nap!
Whoa nelly! Slow down. Take it easy, Rainbow.
Now sit your flank down and let me deflate that ego.
You may be the pony all the fillies wanna be,
But when it comes to work ethic, pony folk look up to me!
Sorry, RD, ya'll will never be a Wonderbolt,
The only reason folks like ya's 'cause ya act like a colt.
Oh please, Applejack - you're the kettle, i'm the pot,
The picture of femininity and poise, you are not!
I'm the fastest, coolest pony, and i've all the best memes,

A lone human slowly blinked, his eyes opening to see the sunlight filtering down around him through the treetops; grunting he slowly got the energy to sit up and then immediately regretted it.
"Oh my head....let's try that again."
Taking a deep breath he slowly sat up and then finally managed to get himself into a sitting position before taking a better look around; from what little he could tell he was in a forest of sorts and while he didn't think he was in any immediate danger he was pretty sure he wanted to get out of wherever this was and find civilization quickly.
"Hmmm...I'm not even sure where I am, or how I got here to be honest. What was the last thing I did?" He groaned, holding his head as he slowly walked in what he hoped was north, "I had work....and then I came home and went to the...park? Hmmm...if that was true I should have my music player and phone with me."
Checking his pockets, he did see that his player was in his pocket

Luna was soon flying over the outskirts of Ponyville, the orchard of apple trees that made up the Sweet Apple Acres orchard speeding past. She could see Twilight's library approaching, easily spotted since it was the only building that was literally carved into a live tree. How the building stayed alive without its internal structuring, Luna never knew. Although, looking over it, she became aware of the dull light that was slowly spreading from the eastern horizon. She had almost forgotten her one true duty of being the Goddess of the Night.
Flipping over so that she was flying upside down, she focused on the huge, pearly white moon that hovered overhead. With a glowing hand outstretched, she slowly pulled it down to the western horizon, releasing it so it may follow the orbital path itself. The beautiful patterns of stars, which she designed herself, followed slowly behind.
Luna yawned lightly. Setting the moon every morning was a tiring process, though she insisted tha

Luna looked out at the dark lands of Equestria. She leaned against the stone railing that surrounded the balcony of her room, in the second highest tower of Canterlot Castle, the first belonging to her sister. She soon found her eyes landing on the small town of Ponyville, watching as lights went out, one after another, as the inhabitants retired to bed. She let out a long sigh, her eyes dropping to stare at her hands, which were folded and resting on the carefully carved balcony border. Yes, she knew not many people stayed up to enjoy her beautiful nights, but it pained her to see the loneliness that turned her into the dreaded Nightmare Moon, stare at her in the face again.
"Problem, sister?" Luna nearly jumped out of her skin as she felt a hand suddenly land on her shoulder, though she turned her head to find Celestia's smiling face beside her. "You looked like something was troubling you is something wrong?"

Especially for a princess who makes others do her fighting.

"Oh Luna We shouldn't Spike might hear us " Twilight said softly, wrapped in Luna's arms.
"Shh... don't worry about him it's all about us right now " Luna replied sweetly, moving her face back towards Twilight's.
Luna awoke slowly, not quite wanting to leave her dream, but found herself pulled out of it anyways. And like all great dreams, she couldn't manage to fall back asleep to rejoin it. She snuggled close to the soft, warm pillow she had her arms wrapped around. Hugging it, she nuzzled her face into the soft, sweet smelling locks of hair that lay next to her. She loved the small, dreamy moan it made when she traced her fingers over its soft fabric. Conscious thoughts appeared in her head as it seemed to snuggle backwards into her. 'Wait Moan? Hair!?'
Her eyes flashed open immediately, and her dream seemed to have come true. She was lying in bed, her arms encircled around Twilight, who was pressed up against her, though somehow still

It was raining again, April showers as it were. Seemed to rain a lot these days not that Big Macintosh minded at all. The rain better suited his mood. There was a calming effect to the steady cadence of it on the roof, the way it fell on the already sodden grounds. He was cold sitting on the front porch while the storm circulated around the farm. The cold felt good, too. It reminded him that he could feel something other than pain. It had been a year already and still there was a dull ache in his heart, a wound to his spirit that would never heal. It hurt every day like it had in the beginning.
The door of the house opened and Applejack came out. She had a blanket between her teeth that she draped around Big Macintosh's withers. Then she took up a seat beside him and they sat together in silence. She sat with him like this a lot in the past year. They spoke less to each other than they had their entire lives, yet somehow they'd grown closer. He knew that without the support of his sist

Dash snickered. "Yeah, I think I knew that from the start. 'Me an' Dash were-a justn', uh, having a roll in the hay. Rasslin!

Three months since the betrothal. From what Rarity had told her, Blueblood would be no good; he was a disrespectful and arrogant stallion, and that couldn't change. Maybe Rarity was wrong. Hopefully, he was wrong. Twilight Sparkle's parents had both agreed to it; it was a promising and lovely match, in their and Princess Celestia's eyes. Tonight, she would get to know Prince Blueblood on their private outing that Princess Celestia planned. A canter around the royal grounds would give them enough time to learn about one another. Twilight Sparkle sighed sheepishly, very gently tapping her hoof on his door.
"Prince Blueblood?" she called, hoping she wouldn't interrupt him on getting ready.
"I'm almost ready; give me about five minutes." he replied. Twilight was dressed in one of Rarity's signature dresses; the glamorous unicorn had grown to be one of the most famous designers in Equestria.

A Princess's Mission Chapter 4As Luna pulled her consciousness back into her own mind, the last thing she expected was the wall that seemed to hit her head-on. 'Drowsy' was an understatement, she was absolutely exhausted. She could barely think properly, but she could tell that she didn't correctly calculate the amount of magic and energy that was required to not only completely clean out and restock a library, but suspend herself in another person's dreams. Getting into a fight once there had only added to the problem. As much as she tried to fight the urge, sleep began to overtake her, and being wrapped in a warm blanket became her worst enemy in the struggle. Even though the warm, and quite soft, body that seemed to be pressed up against her left her arms, she knew she was losing the fight. She felt two hands gently grip her by the shoulders, and lie her down flat against the couch. She didn't resist. She couldn't.

Spike brushed his teeth, getting his breakfast off his breath, and replacing it with the minty coolness of toothpaste. He could simply breathe fire to get rid of it, but he decided this was better than the smell of incinerated bacon and eggs. He rinsed his mouth, and walked back to his bedroom. There was one more thing he needed to retrieve before leaving. He walked to his bedside table, opened the drawer, and delicately picked up the shiny silver object. Just then, the doorbell rang.
He quickly pocketed it and glanced out his door. Luna was standing there, talking to Applebloom. He marveled for a moment how pretty she was in that yellow sundress and bow, which matched her dazzling orange eyes perfectly. He was glad he took extra care into making his usually crazed pillow head of green hair presentable. Though, her quickly surprised face snapped him out of it.

The orange pony trotted away from the tree, heading instead, towards a small cart. She got herself into position, just in front of the cart. She then reared up, so she was now standing on her back legs. The apples fell in an orderly fashion, without any of them going astray. Applejack gave the orchard a quick scan, once the apples were piled into the cart. Upon seeing that there was bit a single apple left, she let out a little 'yeehaw' to show she was done.

The birds sat chirping, their squeaks and squawks sounding out into the cool afternoon. As the little birds danced about their feet made skritch-scratch-skritch-scratch-skritch-scratch sounds upon the stone. As they roosted there and began to doze the sun fell upon them, warming the surface beneath them.
For few moments they stood there, letting the sun wash over them, resting in the meadow as the morning wore on into afternoon. They went on about their day, snapping at flies that came up from the margin around the little pond or grooming themselves, letting the dander and old feathers fall to the earth below or rest upon the stone.

Big Macintosh returned with a glass of water clamped tightly in his jaw. The other ponies just sat there, their attention focused on the glass. Each of them took a varying amount of time, but they all realised what was coming next. This new revelation prompted them to take a step backwards, or as best they could do in the cramped hallway. Big Macintosh proceeded to take centre stage and poised himself. In one quick swoop, he swung his head back and forth. He kept the glass steady, allowing the water to complete the energy change from potential energy to kinetic. This new burst of kinetic energy propelled the water forward, setting it on a direct course for Applejack's face. For the orange pony, the water was the least of her worries.
