My Little DashieOk, don't worry yourselves everyone. This is not a drill. Due to Deviant Art's word cap, I realized a bunch of edits going into my story have not been getting updated. So, I made a Google Doc which you can follow here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NwdIJMALxxi6egHz832IuNIHy1J7JAqulJFoGeLM5tY/edit?hl=en_US or an actual hyperlinky thingy below in the description. I was gonna just delete this and re-post something about it, but with so many of you commenting I was just overcome by your words. So, I wanted to keep them so that I can remember you all!

A World Without Rainbows - Act I: The First Breach
Chapter 1 - Entrada
The voice carried authority. It was the voice of a pony who had the situation under control, who knew what she was doing at all times, almost laughter in the face of peril. But it was also an honest voice, one of compassion and loyalty, one whose softness came not from weakness, but from kindness. It was a magical voice. Most of all, it was a voice of royalty, and it spoke again.
"Twilight Sparkle," said Princess Celestia. "Pray tell, what do you think you are doing?"
In the middle of the large chamber, the unicorn pony Twilight Sparkle searched desperately for an exit, but the royal guards had already blocked them all. The question gave her reason to pause, and she wondered what she was doing. She didn't remember how she had gotten here, only that she needed to escape.
One of the guards, an earth pony named Silver Shiel
To Be An AlicornSweet Apple Acres was a busy place in the spring. Two young stallions walked the fields with plows in tow, while a mailpony dragged in shipments of seeds and tools, and a couple more ponies were visible amonst the apple trees. Adding to the general bustle was a visitor to the farm who gingerly stepped out of the sky, looked around, and opened the gate into the main homestead area. A filly, not quite yet a mare, with a light green coat and straw-colored hair and baskets strapped to her saddle had been trotting through the area, and noticed the visitor first. She stopped dead in her tracks, eyes as big as the moon.To Be An Alicorn5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Oh, hello." the visitor said. "I'm here to see Applejack. Is she around?"
"G-great-granny Applejack?" the filly asked. The visitor paused, and nodded. The young pony kept her eyes on the visitor and pointed towards the barn. There, in a rocking chair, an ancient mare sat with a worn brown steltson covering her eyes. Her coat was gray but with a healthy sheen, a

An Appledash-Scootabloom Fic
Applejack was quietly sitting under a tree in Sweet Apple Acres, patiently waiting for her best friend Rainbow Dash, who was in her way because Applejack had invited her to a friendly competition of Horseshoes that afternoon. AJ loved having a good day with Dash, because every competition, every race, every fight, every discussion just made her like Rainbow even more. She had become her best friend in no-time, she felt a connection with Rainbow Dash she had never felt with nopony else, she felt like the two of them, were just one pony, like they were part of the same entity, around Dash she felt safe, confident, happy, complete and many times, she felt alone when she wasn't there, even if she was with her family, or the rest of their friends. Yes, she was her best friend, because, what other relation could make her feel that way towards anypony? None Right?

The Shadowbolts, as they'd been dubbed by Princess Luna, were now sailing through the sky as fast as their wings would take them. It was almost midnight and as the princess had suspected, no-one knew they were in the area. They had encountered no-one on their flight and with their specially-created uniforms, it was unlikely anyone would even see them, especially given how far up they were.
Cumulo, the youngest, looked down at the ground below. Little dots of lights here and there. Candles in the homes of ponies below. Completely unaware that they were up here or that this task even existed. It made him feel important.
But unfortunately for him, that feeling was subsequently replaced by a reminder of the current temperature. Given how far up they were, the air was ice-cold, made no better by the fact that they were flying in the dead of

"Rainbow?" Applejack said, frowning in disbelief. "Rainbow Dash? Really?"
Rarity nodded. "Oh darling, it suddenly occurred to me while I was chatting with Twilight over tea this morning. She said she felt as if she was missing something, and I suggest that it was somepony she was missing, rather. And when I suggested it was young Spike, she laughed. But then I remembered that Rainbow was also out of town. As you know, she's in Canterlot at the moment helping the Wonderbolts with the Spring Moon Festival performance that rather striking Spitfire has a marvellous aerial spectacle in store for the Princess Luna, I hear."
"Ah dunno, Rarity," said Applejack. "Ah mean, Twi and Rainbow? What do those two even have in common?"

Derpy Hooves was inside her home to avoid the winter storm, she had already started a fire in her fireplace and had put a blanket over herself to help her warm up again. As Derpy looked out her window she was very glad she was not in the storm anymore. She started to relax a little when a thought struck her mind, 'what if somepony was stuck outside?' The warmth of the fire in front of her was very inviting compared to the cold outside, but in Derpys heart she knew that the possibility of leaving somepony outside while she was safe inside was not something she could ignore. After grabbing her winter wears Derpy went back out into the raging winter storms in order to help whoever needed it.
Rarity was trying to head to the rendezvous point, but her progress back across Ponyville was quite slow. Rarity's hooves were aching from running through the snow to Sweet Apple Acres. She was thinking, 'Oh why was I, of all ponies, chosen to go the farthest distance to see if Rainbow Dash

Twilight Sparkle paused in the middle of raising a steaming cup of cocoa to her lips and stared at Carrot Top. "The world? Going to end?"
Carrot Top just nodded, her face a blank slate.
Twilight took a quick sip before she replied. "Well, hypothetically speaking-"
"No," Carrot cut in, then softened her voice. "No, not just hypothetically. Please, think about this before you answer."
Twilight shook her head. "But there's so much I don't know." She rose to her hooves and paced back and forth across the hardwood of the library's floor. "Would it happen all at once, like an explosion, or would it be a few minutes, or hours, during which everypony would be scared?"
Carrot finally broke into a small smile. "I should have expected this." The smile dropped away as she answered, "All at once. About three and a half hours from now."

The bright yellow pegasus with the fiery colored mane flew as fast as she could. In her years with the Wonderbolts, she had never pushed herself like this. Her wings felt like they were on fire, but she pushed her muscles even further. Her goal was coming into view. She just hoped the help she needed would be available.
Rainbow Dash rolled over and rubbed her eyes. Yawning, she grumbled about having to even get out of bed. She was so comfortable. If the sun were just not as bright, she could go right back to sleep. Still, today was a big day for work. She knew she had to get up and get moving. Rolling out of bed and thumping heavily on the floor, she blinked her eyes and smacked her tongue in her mouth trying to figure out the taste the morning brought.

It was something Twilight was academically interested to hear their opinions on and they had yet to decide what to do next, so Twilight asked, "Hey girls I have an odd question, I'm studying pony psychology and I wanted to know what you thought of gay and lesbian ponies."

The quill glided across the crisp parchment, leaving a bold line of ink in its wake. Under Twilight Sparkle's magical direction, more lines crisscrossed the parchment, dividing it into neat little boxes. Soon these boxes were filled in with cramped writing, and the rows and columns were labelled with dates and times. Twilight paused to survey her work. "A perfect schedule," she announced to the empty library. "And I even left room to plan next month's schedule this time!" All it lacked was a fitting title. Twilight leaned in close, concentrating.
"Gaaah!" Before it could even touch the parchment, the quill flew up and out of sight behind her. Twilight winced and put a hoof to her smarting eye. It had happened again: a sharp pain in her eye, followed by a flash of green light that left her blinded for a few moments. Such occurrences had been bothering her off and on ever since returning from the wedding yesterday. At first, she had written them off as the result of being overworked with

It was a bright and sunny Monday morning; the leaves of the tree house blew lightly in the calm breeze. A purple unicorn fluttered her eyes awake as the sun penetrated the light pink curtains of her bedroom.
"Ugh" she moaned, turning her turn into the pillow. "That stallion lied to me, these curtains don't block sunlight. I must remember to send him a complain letter."
It had been two days since the 'incident' at Applebloom's party. Neither Rainbow Dash nor Applejack had shown their faces in town since then, probably embarrassed to death. Twilight has known that feeling before on several occasions.

Today was another calm and relaxing day for Twilight who, sitting on a park bench, watched as Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie ran around in a game of tag. Applejack and Rarity stood at the edge of a pond, bickering over something to do with their manes. Finally Twilight looked to her right, seeing Fluttershy on the bench beside her, looking down to the ground and lightly crying.
"Fluttershy? What's the matter?" Twilight asked softly.
Fluttershy tried to look more cheery, wiping her tears away. "Oh, n-nothing is wrong."
Twilight looked into Fluttershy's sorrowful eyes. Something about herself was bothering her friend. Did she say something? Or do something? Maybe there was something wrong with her she hadn't seen before. Seeing the pond, an idea came to her, so she stood from the bench. Something felt wrong; her bones and entire body ached in pain. She felt as though she had been in a fight or put through intensive labor.

She glanced through the window on the door as best she could from her angle, and sighed. The clock read 2:24. She wouldn't be getting a visitor for another two and a half hours. She sighed, rolled over, and wrapped her hooves around her pillow. She didn't know what to think about, what to say, what to do. She had been confused as to whether or not she was a filly fooler since middle school, and now that she'd decided to embrace it, she was going to die. There was no point in fantasizing about having a fillyfriend, now that she was on the brink of death. She cuddled her pillow tighter, her eyes beginning to feel like she might cry again. She didn't want to cry anymore, it was so draining and depressing, not exactly how she wanted to spend her last thirteen days.

Besides, most of them were just eating in small groups without talking, which was hardly the kind of thing worth spreading rumors about. Yet Gilda watched anyway.

Wind howled and thunder cracked throughout the valley as rain fell heavily from the clouds above. For the past two hours, the pony trudged through the sudden storm, only then beginning to realize the full implications of the destroyed weather factory. Ducking for cover was not an option on the slopes of the mountain and setting up her tent would only attract lightning. Why had she forgotten to pack that magical lightning rod?
The white mare sighed, her voice drowned out by the ferocity of the wind against her face. Twilight Sparkle (now known as Blueprint to everypony else) thanked her lucky stars that nopony was with her so she could cast a bubble shield charm, which stopped the driving rain from soaking her to the core. It did nothing to stem the tide of the wind, however: her mane and tail being whipped about by the turbulent currents.
