On a Cross and Arrow
By Conner Cogwork
Twilight and her five friends are transported during a botched spell, across dimensions to... Ponyville, Equestria? But not the same one that they knew. Sitting on a bench is Harpsy and Babar. The Doctoress avoids apples from an aspiring Applebuck. And in a library across town, six stallions join their forces as they try to decipher the appearance of filly look-alikes of themselves around Ponyville!

Rainbow Dash yawned in a bored manner. True, this was at least ten times better than staying inside the cramped quarters of the HEDGE... but it was still boring work. She had no idea how those royal bodyguards did it.
The pegasus was nestled deep in the clump of bushes that made up their hideout's roof. Guard duty was something they had all agreed on the first thing that morning. The majority of them were convinced that Dusk was goi

Cheese didn't know the time, but he was guessing it was near 2 am.
Why had he come back again to the source of his inspiration? He thought he had gotten his closure last time he came here.
Regret filled the lanky stallion, who was dressed in a grey hat and a poncho, patterned with different shades of grey.
"Should we turn back, Boneless Two? ... Nah, it's no use going back now", Cheese said to his rubber chicken on a tiny saddle, or rather to himself, since his companion was just a rubber chicken.
A while ago Cheese was still sleeping under a tree near Las Pegasus after a long day of walking, planning epic parties and partying in said parties.
Suddenly his Cheesy Sense had gone off and woken him up to tell him to go to Ponyville, but this wasn't the usual kind of doozy he gets for parties in th

Then his thoughts wandered off again to what was happening right then.
Actually, he thought it would be really fun hanging out with Pinkie. If he could control his feelings, that is. That would be hard, but it was worth a shot. He let out a small grunt while trying to think about her as just a friend.
Did she mention a pajama party? Do most ponies even wear pajamas? His thoughts wandered to something fully different.
"C'mon, speed up! We're almost there!" Pinkie exclaimed, looking at Cheese while hopping.
Cheese speeded up to a trot. Eventually he caught up and was next to Pinkie. He looked away.
Pinkie was really worried then. Doesn't Cheese like being with her? She's got to find a way to make him smile!
"What are you thinking?" Pinkie asked, trying to make small talk.
"Oh, uhm, you know... stuff..."
Pinkie didn't like this version of Cheese. She looked sadly fo
The Best Night Ever - Missing SceneThe night was young and the stars were just coming out. The royal city of Canterlot glistened in the light of the moon and the stars. Tonight perhaps more than any other night, this city was a centre for Equestrian society.The Best Night Ever - Missing Scene3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
For this night, was the Grand Galloping Gala. One of the most anticipated events of the year. Everypony worth their salt wanted to be invited to this prestigious event. A time when the elite of Canterlot gathered in one place. Those found at this celebration truly were the best of the best. The cream of the crop. An event that any single person would give their own right hoof to be a part of.
And he hated every minute of it.
Shining Armour, Captain of the Equestrian royal guard, stood there, decked in his usual purple armour, alongside two of his guardsmen, both unicorns, and watched the new arrivals to the party step up the city steps one by one. It was among his duties as captain to oversee that security for such a newsworthy event ran smoothly. Of course as the c

(Starring Shining Armor and Princess Cadance)
During the night of the crescent moon, a single carriage left the gates of Canterlot, largest city and capital of the Kingdom of Equestria. Now, normally this would not be such a strange occurrence as many carriages seem to enter and exit the metropolis at will. However, this very carriage had something, or rather someponies, which were of great importance on that particular night. A while ago, the entire city was witness to one of the most important dates of the year; more important than perhaps Winter Wrap-Up or Hearth's Warming: the wedding of Captain Shining Armor and Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, (or Cadance, as she liked to be called). However, it had also been a day of crisis as hordes of demonic changelings from the deepest part of Tartarus laid siege to Canterlot. Their queen, Chrysalis, had trapped Cadence under the Royal Palace and assumed her form, deceiving Shining Armor and the entire populace. With the stal

"It's hard for ponies these days to imagine what it was like back then. If they were dropped into this time before Equestria, it'd be unrecognizable to their eyes."
Excerpts from the Candid Sayings of Celestia as recorded by her friends
Whip Scar chewed with his head low and his eyes peeled in the soft moonlight. Tension filled his every muscle and he wandered amidst the herd aimlessly. Deep in the wilds of the wide, wide forest known as Everfree, the simple herd of ponies grazed the grasses in the fields that sometimes broke the expanse of trees. They, too, were tense though they did not show it.
Foaling was a dangerous time for all. During the first few hours of life, a foal cannot walk. Predators sought those times. They preferred not to attack the strong or swift, it did a carnivore no good to pit themselves against the best when all they wanted was a meal. They liked their prey helpless, be it sick, old, or simply unaware. There was nothing so helpless as a new

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

Warning: [A little slip of Karkat's mouth]
There sat a girl on a lonely bench outside-- you. It was a cold, crisp and definitely beautiful morning. Pulling your phone from your jacket's pouch, you turned on the screen and checked the time.
'Late late late. Is he even coming?'
You met this guy, well, more like an 'alien', about a month ago. He comes outside in the mornings to take walks, when there are less people and minimum sunlight. He always wears a cap on his head so if anybody takes a peek at him they wouldn't see his pale skin and, uh, horns. You liked to think of them as candy corn rather than "horns" -since they were so nubby- but you would never admit it to him. Of course you wouldn't tell him that, not soon, this guy was always kind of grumpy and crabby. You had told him your name, but he never told you his, on account of his irritable a

Despite everything going smoothly, Twilight was still upset. She'd been positive that the Princess would take her message seriously. Instead, it'd been dismissed like a foal claiming to it's mother that there was a monster under the bed. Still, a command from the Princess was not something to be ignored. So, being the dutiful student she was, Twilight was busy preparing her things for the trip to this Ponyville place she'd heard about.
She walked over to her window and looked out. The royal city of Canterlot. The jewel in the crown of the nation of Equestria. Any pony in the world would give everything they had to be able to live in a place like this, and Twilight had been fortunate to be born here herself. It was a centre of learnin

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...

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

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.

The Crystal Empire was slowly becoming engulfed in a mass of threatening, black clouds; dark as the deadliest of storms. Screams could be heard all around as the crystal ponies began to panic. Up in the tallest tower in the city, Twilight found herself trapped within the confines of a black-crystal prison, the gems risen up from the ground, blocking any means of escape for the lavender unicorn. Just outside, Spike started to feel nervous. His eyes darted from side to side, his feet moved up and down like two, small pistons.
Twilight started to scramble within the crystal-walled trap, looking for the Crystal Heart with a set of panicked eyes.

This story takes place in the same universe as Seven Days with Spitfire.
These events take place after the end of Day Seven but prior to the Epilogue.
You do not need to read Seven Days before this, but it would likely make it a deeper story as character development and changes will carry over into this one. This is not an extra "Day", but just another story arc.
All you need to know from Seven Days for this story is that Spitfire has retired from the Wonderbolts and is now living in a house just outside ponyville. Rainbow Dash was key in helping Spitfire during that time and she has given up on her dream of becoming a Wonderbolt.
I hope you enjoy this new story.

Chapter 4 Part 1: Change of Perspective
Time can pass very quickly when you're with the one you love. It can seem like just yesterday that you were only friends, and then suddenly a week has passed. Even though a week may not seem like the longest time, when spent with the right person, or pony, every moment is special.
This was exactly the case for Rainbow and Fluttershy. It had been a week since their first day together, the day when they both finally admitted their feelings for one another, and things couldn't be going better for the happy couple. Their relationship was still moving slowly, but neither of them felt the need to rush things. Well, maybe Rainbow wouldn't have minded if things progressed a little faster as she had never been the patient type, but she knew that Fluttershy was more comfortable with taking things slow.
However, slow didn't mean they spent any less time together. In fact, every day for the past week there was rarely a moment they could be seen apart.

Twilight Sparkle's head shot up, eyes wide. A stray thought had interrupted her reading and struck terror deep into her heart.
Pinkie Pie had been quiet for hours! In a library!
The unicorn rushed from her room and down the stairs to the main floor, then let out a relieved whoosh of air at the sight of the pink pony. Pinkie was right where she left her, reading by candlelight from one of the many open books splayed across the library's largest table.
Twilight watched as Pinkie leaned over a book, eyes flicking side to side. Then the earth pony shifted one big step to the side, flipped the page of the next book, and leaned in close to the words. She only seemed to take around five seconds per book before moving on to the next.
"How do you manage to learn anything like that?" Twilight asked.

Spike was lost in his dreamland where a piercing shout woke him up. His eyes popped open to see Twilight staring down angrily at him. Spike blinked a couple of times, hoping that it would be some kind of nightmare. Much to his dismay, each blink made the hopefully-dream Twilight even angrier. She just kept staring him down, like she was expecting him to know why she was angry. Did he know? He was terrible at thinking in the morning.
"Um.... can I help you Twilight?" Spike asked hopefully.
"Do you have any idea what time it is?" Twilight demanded.
"Calmly-explain-to-Spike-why-you're-so-angry-time?" Spike offered in a vein hope that it would sate the beast before him.

Chapter 1: How Could You Be So Wrong, Twilight?
Books and scrolls littered the floor of Ponyville’s library, leaving only a small path for Twilight to walk through. At the epicenter of the organized chaos was the unicorn herself, glancing between a large, old book and a partially finished chalk drawing on the ground. Occasionally she moved to a large stack of books detailing old languages and flipped through them, mumbling to herself as she cross-referenced symbols and details to a piece of parchment. After several more walks between her references and the near crumbling book she was so focused on, she grinned and took a piece of chalk with her magic.
“Now... I need to draw these runes just right...” Twilight said to herself, tracing an intricate pattern into the floor of the library. Beads of sweat were starting to form on her brow, from the concentration she was putting into the small piece of chalk scraping along the floor. Just a little more... she thought,
