Clair watched Moxi through narrowed eyes until she'd passed through the palace doors and out of his line of sight. "So what do we want to do," Middy said, cutting the tense atmosphere, "should we head inside or wait out here to see if anyone else from Luneria is coming?"
"I have work to do," Clair muttered, bowing to the ponies before him, "so here is where I take my leave of you all. I'm sure I shall see you later in the evening." With that, the stallion trotted off leaving everypony else behind.
"Well," said Willow after a moment's pause, "I suppose it's just as likely they've beaten us inside as it is we should find them out here, let's get inside and just keep an eye open for familiar faces, eh?"
Everypony nodded their agreement and trotted through the flurry of illusory confetti to the magnificently adorned doors of Canterlot Palace's banquet hall.
"When you said food," Moxi said, watching Voltage scarf down an entire plate of chocolate-chip cookies, "I can't say this is what I ha

"There are those who say that Celestia's path is good, just, and noble. Enforcing order from the chaos that would ignite, should her hoof not be there to stamp it out.
There are those who say that she is a tyrant.
There are those who allege that Luna would lead the world into a glorious new age, wherein everypony would have freedom to live as they see fit.
There are those who allege that she is a traitor.
Celestia and Luna have always been at odds. One, entrusted with ambiguous responsibilities from an absent queen. One, jealous and fearful of what her beloved sister chose to become to preserve their way of life.
I wasn't there, so I can't say what sparked the insurrection. I can say that the Grand Solar Empire simply did not exist before the propaganda rained from the skies. I can say that I do not blame Celestia herself for what her armies have done. She was always so motherly when she graced my humble home, always seeming so confidant and wise. I can truly say that I loved her as

CHAPTER 2: Orion's Big Day
From the moment the first rays of sunshine flowed through his bedroom window, Orion Sparkle woke up without a single ounce of hesitation, threw off the warm covers that enveloped him, and jumped out of bed. The room was cold and the world outside looked even more frigid, but instead of returning to the toasty embrace of his dreams, he only felt more awake than ever. His sister Andromeda often joked that it would usually take nothing short of magic to pull him out of the peaceful comatose he called sleep, but this was no ordinary day.
Life and enthusiasm rushed through his body in great vigor this morning because today was his birthday. Even more important, though, was its significance. All night long, he dreamed of finally getting his cutie mark and showing it to his friends. The “oohs” and “aahs” still reverberated in his mind as he rushed to a mirror, unable to contain his excitement any longer. With a quick turn, he spun hi

Gun With Occasional Pony Chapter 6
In Which a Conman is Consulted, a Watson is Wanted, and a Trip is Taken.
The FiM District was certainly... something.
It was much like the /co/mpound, only less crowded. It had originally taken shape as a refuge during the ban wars, except back then it had been a massive, opulent city, built from rebellion and inhabited by the lost. However, since the end of the wars the population had slowly diminished, leaving many buildings empty and boarded up. Most large contributors had secondary offices in the better districts. The only others who cared to stay were the stubborn kind. The kind that said, if the mods didn't want them, screw that; they could make their own way. It was slow but, to a hoofull of ponies, it was home.
Unlike the /co/mpound there were few Anons running around, most every pony had a name and a story, but I only wanted to hear one of them.
The district bordered the /co/ast before pouring into the /b/ay and, eventually, the ou

I was moping around about Dashie the next day, looking into my photo album. I stared at the photo of my little filly on the couch, sleeping the night she said, "I love you, Daddy. Goodnight." I remember that moment like I did my parents. Thinking about my parents made me even sadder. I went on the computer in my office, which used to be Dashie's room. That fact made me whimper a little, and I decided to get caught up on MLP FiM. I was searching for some season 3 videos when I saw a forum for it. I clicked it and the news page said: MLP FiM STARTING AGAIN! Of course, it was a few weeks old. It

I gasped as I saw the cyan body of a pegasus with violet eyes and a rainbow mane and tail with the cutie mark of a rainbow lightning bolt coming out of a cloud, or so I had thought I saw. The man said: "Hey, I'm a traveler. Can I buy some food and water off of you?" He showed me a 10$ bill and I went to get him some food and fill his canteen. When I came back, he thanked me and left.

It is said that earth pony mares long ago had a way of making their spurned love fall for them by mixing their food or drink with a special ingredient.

The Apple family were gathered around a table in their kitchen. They nervously watched as Granny Smith crunched numbers on her calculator. A strip of paper escaped it and rolled across the length of the table between jars of zap apple jam. Applejack had Apple Bloom in a tight embrace, her eyes wide with fear and her little sister worriedly looking up at the table. Big Mac stood on the other side of Granny Smith; his calm exterior betrayed the furore raging inside him.
The only one unfazed was Granny Smith herself, fervently pressing buttons and yanking on levers.

When i saw Dashie sleeping next to me on that bed, I didn't know what to believe. I got out of bed as slowly as I could, trying not to disturb her.

The sun poured through the drawn drapes of the small, cottage bedroom, illuminating everything in its short radius with a dim light. The room was still somewhat dark, but if a pony needed to, they could easily make their way through it now. Rainbow Dash grunted, slowly rising up from the bed and rubbing her head. She licked her chapped lips and stretched out, her joints cracking in complaint. She shook out her mane and lay back on the bed, wishing for sleep to imprison her within its relentless grasp once more. Sadly, after a short period of time it was obvious that she was awake and it was going to stay that way until the sun set again. The blue pony rose once again, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes and observing her surroundings. The room she found herself in looked exactly the same as it had the previous night, and with it came back the pleasant memories as well. She smiled, checking the side of the bed adjacent to her, and when her eyes fell upon wha

Energetic crowds of fans bustle into the theatre, with ponies and bronies alike chuckling and commenting about the last episode. The entire room is alive with activity as stage crew hide scenery behind curtains, lights are adjusted overhead, and the rapid clatter of hooves on wood can be heard backstage. Pinkie Pie peeks through the big red curtains, and starts waving at you all with a big grin on her face. She abruptly disappears when somepony's hoof drags her back.
As everypony is seated, the lights begin to dim, and Spike emerges onto the stage wearing an enormous curly black afro. Tapping the mic once to be sure it's on, the tiny purple dragon begins the show. "Welcome ladies, gentlecolts, and bronies of all ages to the Pony Variety Show! I'm your host, Spike Spiegel, hahaha!

Welcome back, aspiring brony writers. Now that you know the basic lessons on how to write a story that's better than whatever you wrote in kindergarden(or any of my first stories) you're on to the next step: creating original characters.
Why are we spending a part on Original Characters, or OCs? Because sometimes, you have a story that none of the show's characters fit in. For example, I have this really silly idea where a bunch of serial killers meet each other and pick at each other's flaws and guts, and clearly I'm not going to take the psycho Twilight and Pinkadema route LIKE I KNOW A LOT OF YOU DO...seriously, installing those cameras in your house was not worth it...
So sometimes you have a story that you want your own creation in and decide their personalities, and you will learn the greatest part of writing: It's the only field you can play God in and still get away with without moral consequences. After all, I decided the character I kn

There was once a star in the times of old
That was one of the greatest and the brightest of all the skies.
He was known only as The Morning Star
With many gifts and blessings bestowed by his Creator
To make him one of His greatest creations.
His light was bright beyond anyones wildest dreams
Unrivaled by even the brightest of the stars.
His power was so great and mighty
That the universe would dance for him without uttering a word or lifting a finger
His knowledge and glory was so abundant
That it transcended all other creations
Wearing them like a brilliant cloak of royalty.
His speed was so quick
That he could be anywhere in an instant for he had no need for
Anything else for they would only slow him down.
His beauty was infinite and indescribable
And it added to his already brilliant light adding the beauty to its magnificence
With its nigh perfection.

"This will make things a LOT easier!"
Pinkie held up the parchment before her eyes, grinning widely as she scanned over the words written on it. Nearby, Dash was finishing getting her saddlebags in order. She glanced over at the nearby Pie family, tilting her head. "What's that, Pinks?"
"Where my sisters live!" the excited pink pony answered.
Roxanne turned her attention to Dash. "Our daughters write us letters every month. I've given you their addresses so you may find them easier."
Dash blinked a few times. "Ooh... Why didn't I think of that? Of course you two would know."
Roxy chuckled softly and nodded. Pinkie bounced in place on her rump, before rolling up the scroll and shoving it into her own saddlebag. "I can't wait to see them again! ... I hope they don't hate me or anything..."

My Thoughts on SpikeMuch like my chequered history with main characters, I've also had various issues with character belonging to groups other than those targeted as a show's intended audience. By this I mean that if a show is meant to be watched by a certain group of people , and then included a character which does not belong to that specific group, their portrayal has often been hit-and-miss in terms of their quality.My Thoughts on Spike3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Take this show for example. Despite it unexpected male audient it remains at it's heart a show intended to be watched by young girls. As such any male character shown in this series would have always had me worried. Whenever I've glanced at shows meant for this demographic in the past, the portrayal of male character has been either as incompetent and foolish who can't do anything right, or outright brutish in a manner that makes all boys/men out to be bullies.
Even though this is the start of the "supporting characters" analyses I'll be doing, technically Spike the baby dragon is officia

The halls of the royal palace of Canterlot echo with the noise of ponies coming to life for the beginning of the new day, set to come any moment. Two lines of royal guardsmen, freshly suited up in armor, make their way down a specific hallway, stopping a few yards away from the ornate doors that lie at the end of it. They line up against opposite walls, looking at each other silently and waiting. In the dark room that lies beyond the doors, there comes a stirring, and with a delicate yawn the room becomes awash in magic lig

After completing the applebucking, Applejack and Spike were lying down on the grass. The orange mare and purple dragon were close as they looked up to the partly cloudy sky. A gently breeze was slowly pushing the clouds across the blue atmosphere, causing the two to point out the shapes.

"Yer right, it kinda does. That one there looks like some kinda animal, like a rodent or somethin'," Applejack pointed to a different cloud.

And greed grew into coveting
And her covet became her need,
Until she had no other thing

In the prosperous Kingdom of Equestria, there is one thing that is most certain: music is everything to the gentle ponies of the land. From the old hymns of the ancient Imperium, to the bard songs of Medieval Equestria; from soft classical symphonies, to the loud beats of the infant techno scene, music had always been a part of the ordinary pony's life. A wise pony once said, "Without music, life would be a mistake."
For generation upon generation, it has been guiding force in the development of their culture and has been ingrained in the hearts and minds of the citizens of the prosperous country. It has turned enemies into friends. It has replaced chaos and suffering with peace and prosperity and it has turn
