Wrath of Derpy aka: Derpy's RevengeI was just looking through my pony archives and something occurred to me that I'm not certain has been explored yet. In lesson Zero when all the ponies are fighting over Smarty Pants, Derpy is in an aggressive grapple with Mayor Mare... Might the destruction of Ponyville Town Hall not have been an 'accident'?
I mean... she did seem fairly pleased with herself while pleading ignorance of knowing 'what went wrong.'
This changes my views on some things.
RCFS Part 2Rainbow Dash had escorted Luna home that night so that Luna would be able to get some sleep before her next lesson. Luna hadn't slept much at all though because she was too busy wondering what pink pie would taste like. Perhaps it was some sort of fruity flavor. Luna placed Abby upon her bookshelf. She didn't know what she was in for today and after last night she worried that she might break her dear friend so today Abby stayed home.RCFS Part 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Luna made her way through Ponyville that afternoon with her saddle bag stuffed full of bandages and various other first aid. A pony could never be too careful, especially when the circumstances were unknown. Luna had also decided that day to strip herself of her princess decor and opted instead for a purple cloak. She didn't want to feel too out of place. She also didn't want to make other ponies feel uncomfortable hence the normal sort of clothing that she chose if you could call a cloak mid day normal.
Ponyville was busy as ever as ponies were rushing a

I was home.
I jerked upright in bed and looked around, blinking. There was a half-empty bottle of scotch on the dresser with a tumbler on its side next to it, while around my bedroom were scattered what appeared to be the remnants of a party pink streamers, crumpled crepe-paper and sad, half-deflated balloons lying on the floor in bunches.
"Just what in the hey was I doing last night?" I wondered. I got out of bed, expecting to feel that familiar dull throb of a hangover when I moved, but there wasn't one. Looking down, I saw that I was wearing my usual blue flannelette pajamas with the silver-embroidered stars on them.
Well, at least I hadn't gotten so drunk that I'd forgotten to get changed!
I visited the toilet, but as I was walking from there into the bathroom I suddenly heard the sound of someone operating the coffee machine in the kitche

Later that day Rarity, Applejack, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, dressed in the new gowns that Rarity had designed especially for the Spring Moon Festival, were waiting in the Town Square in the clear and mild spring air for Twilight to arrive with their transportation.
"I thought we were going by air balloon," said Pinkie Pie with some disappointment. The truth was, she loved flying in it every opportunity she could get.
"Now darling," said Rarity indulgently. "That's scarcely a dignified way for us to arrive in Canterlot, all squashed together in that tiny gondola! Besides, it's traditional when travelling to Canterlot to go by coach."
"That reminds me," said Applejack. "I wonder who Twi's gonna get to pull it this time everypony is awful busy at the moment, what with all the spring cleanin' and plantin' goin' on."

Pinkie Pie's chipper voice called out over a faint clattering from the direction of the kitchen. "You left it hanging on the coat pegs by the back door."
The earth pony stallion backed out of the closet and trotted across the empty tile floor of Sugarcube Corner and disappeared through a swinging door marked "Employees Only". A couple of moments later his plaintive call came from the store room. "Aw, now where did I leave my rain slicker? It was just here yesterday!"
Pinkie's voice in the kitchen chirped in reply. "On the rack in the bathroom, remember? From when Snails brought Gummy over from Froggy Bottom Bog for his weekly bath!"
"Oh right, how could I forget?" Came the stallion's mildly pained reply as he cantered out of the back room shaking his head, an umbre

The pink tentacles of Octo-Pie twitched in alarm. "She's gonna do it Twilob!"
"Pfft" Trix-Sea, the blue and silver lobster that lounged next to Twilob snapped her claws in contempt. "If she's going that fast she'll end up boiling the ocean!"
The three looked up in horror as they saw their pegasus lobster friend flying through the ocean. The water around Rainbow Lobster began to froth and broil, and as the thunderclap of a sonic lobboom filled the depths, they saw her plummet, red and sizzling hot.
Octo-Pie was first to the body. "Oh Rainbow Lobster!" she cried. "I'm sorry I didn't believe you, and now you are a delicious meal!" She sadly licked the tasty lobster's shell. "So succulently sad!"
Twilob sadly watched Octo-Pie drag Rainbow Lobster away, presumably to bury her. She

Trixie clinked the glass against the mirror, which was propped against the chair on the opposite side of the table. "Oh Trixie!" she swooned. "I should have done this sooner!" She blushed. Her reflection blushed. This was the greatest date she had ever been on.
With a passionate swipe of her hoof, she knocked away the table, throwing herself at her reflection. Her reflection did the same. That was what she liked about herself, she thought: she was always good at doing what she wanted. "Oh Trixie, take me now!"
She started to kiss her reflection. Her kiss was a bit harder and flatter and colder than she had expected, but it was still good. She wrapped her hooves about the mirror and leant in. "Oh Trixie!" she gasped. "I've always loved

In the summer of 2005 I met a girl. Emma was my first serious girlfriend, and I found myself caring for her a great deal rather quickly. She had a personality unlike any other girl I had met, and it intrigued me. She was smart, pretty, and kind of odd in some ways, but I liked it: you could say it was her most endearing factor. The first three months went along without a hitch. We spent a lot of time together, we laughed, we talked, we shared dreams and fears. I told her my fear of the dark, and of my overactive imagination.
She told me about her fear of dead people. I kind of laughed when she first told me, it was kind of lame I thought at the time. Just... dead people? Certainly JUST 'dead people' aren't so scary by themselves. We kind of had

In truth, he was perusing the four color panels of the latest issue of Thunderpony tucked neatly into the pages of the larger book.

Twilight startled awake, cold sweat covering her body. She gasped desperately for breath, one hoof clutching her heaving chest. Her eyes slowly adjusted to the dark room. Gradually her breathing became more regulated.
This dream had felt more real than the last. Green oceans expanded into eternity, horrible darkness swirling with the churn of the tides. The moon cast black lights over the merciless sea. Voices from the depths played over the surface beckoning Twilight down, down, ever down into the farthest crevices of the murky abyss. There, where no pony had ever swum, she was drawn to where the alien cities stood. The strange foreign whispers of an unknown language called Twilight closer, the whole while her burning chest screaming for air. Then, fiery sea foam washed her awake.
Night after night the same dream. No, it was not the same. Every night the intensity grew. Twilight was more certain each night that she wa

Smokey trudged through the snowy paths of Ponyville, occasionally tossing a friendly toothy grin as a few ponies he passed by. If only he hadn’t shown his gleaming white fangs in his grin, maybe he wouldn’t have been retaliated by such responding looks of fear. Though he was long used to such responses, a hope that had been long dead--a hope that out there were ponies who would accept him despite his draconic appearance--a hope that had been rekindled by Fluttershy.
Of course there existed ponies who would accept Smokey as a friend in a heartbeat. He had misfortune to thank for following him in his early years to the present. Misfortune guided him to the wrong ponies at the wrong times, crushing all hope of acceptance out of the winged reptile. Now, it didn’t matter if any more ponies accepted him. Fluttershy and Chenoa--along with his own animal friends--was all he needed and all the fortune he was going to ask for
