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.

The lights flickered in the studio, the concrete floors and dark corners giving the illusion that the building was to be considered a large garage. However, it was a bit more ornate than that, as banners hanging from the ceiling and different metal machines adorned the edges near the walls, showcasing a pony in a white suit, with even it's mane and tail completely hidden within the confines of the fabric, a shining white helmet adorning the stallion's head, leaving any idea of the pony under the cloth to be a complete mystery.
A bushy maned pony walked into the center of the staging area of the building, stepping upon a raised platform which held two couches, one large enough for two ponies, and the other the beige pony found himself occupying, placing some documents on the table as he rested himself on the seat. Flipping through pages, the pony's expressions flipped lazily from mild surprise to utter disgust as fiddled with the color of
Fluttershy Character ReviewReviewing the character of Fluttershy is certainly no easy task. After all, she's arguably the most-loved character within the show and the certified fan-favourite for many, so much so that criticising her character would lead to a lot of dissent amongst the masses. Indeed, finding something mean to say about Fluttershy would be reductive and not terribly necessary, as anyone who has watched "Friendship is Magic" for more than ten minutes knows how adorably sweet she is. And, in a show that actively promotes friendship, kindness and positivity, it would be counter-productive to insult Fluttershy, when she is the greatest embodiment of everything that the show represents.Fluttershy Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But what is it about Fluttershy that makes her so appealing to many? It could be her graceful appearance: a subtle and soft yellow with the trademark long, pink tail and mane which serves as a protective barrier that she can frequently hide behind. After all, that namesake, Fluttershy, is not without merit, for her shy
Applejack Character ReviewIt comes as something of a surprise that Applejack represents the spirit of Honesty within "Friendship is Magic". Although one would scarcely dare to call Applejack a liar, Honesty is perhaps not her greatest virtue. Nevertheless, Applejack has so many positive attributes honesty included that her representation in the Pilot as this particular embodiment of the Elements of Harmony makes sense, even if it seems a little odd at first. After all, what else would Applejack represent? Her character within the show is synonymous with both a maturity beyond her years and an unmatched compassion for her peers, to the extent that she becomes, to this viewer, the unofficial leader of the group.Applejack Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Although it is well-established that Twilight Sparkle is the 'main' member of the core six, Applejack has more qualities that could be associated to a lead protagonist. Her behaviour is almost always optimistic; rarely do we see an example where she succumbs to defeat or negativity, even whe
Friendship is Magic: a ReviewNostalgia can be a funny thing it's the sort of emotional impulse that makes a man do crazy things. Things like purchasing the "Sonic Underground" box-set, simply because I enjoyed it as a kid. But there's something inherently disappointing about nostalgia; the realisation that these experiences often remain a part of our childhood for a reason. Watching "Sonic Underground" as a 19-year old is a very different experience to watching it as a youngster on Saturday mornings. The once beloved show now appears to me as a train-wreck of embarrassing musical montages, repetitive pacing and rather dated animation. Getting old is no fun when it brings out the critic within.Friendship is Magic: a Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Thankfully, I have re-ignited that joyous spark of infancy after watching "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"; a show that for me is not mired by any form of nostalgic bias. After all, prior to "Friendship is Magic" I'd never even considered watching anything related to the My Little Pony franchise. Having watched s
Rainbow Dash Character ReviewBold, brave, daring and tenacious...these are words that one would usually associate with Rainbow Dash in "Friendship is Magic". But how about adorable, innocent and, at times, insecure? Rainbow Dash may be the sporty member of the group and the most tomboyish female within the mane cast, but this does not detract from the fact that, like every other pony, she has a multi-layered personality that allows her to express all sorts of emotions, both positive and negative. Some are naturally the sort of temperaments that one would normally match Rainbow Dash with, but it would be a great injustice to merely suggest that Rainbow Dash is concerned with competitions and little else.Rainbow Dash Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Of course, there are competitive elements in her personality. It is revealed early into the series that she and Applejack, although good friends, are also rivals. In "Fall Weather Friends" this is evidenced well, wherein Rainbow Dash and Applejack face off against one another during the Running of the Leaves, but t

"Thanks for helping me move all this stuff, Twilight," Pinkie Pie said, looking over the boxes Twilight levitated out of the attic and into her bedroom.
"You're welcome, Pinkie. What is all this?" Twilight asked. She looked from one box to the next, some filled with toys, others with old flattened balloons and party favors and one with what appeared to be old long stale baked goods.
"My childhood! I've saved loads of stuff and I brought it all with me when I moved here to Sugarcube Corner. Ooh, lookie!" She held up a rock from a box Twilight was levitating.
The box seemed to collapse under its own weight; rocks and papers and various items fell to the floor.
"That was the first pile of rocks I ever moved!" she said with delight, gathering them up and placing them in an orderly pile.
The Return of Harmony ReviewDiscord, wielder of chaos and wanton destruction, is the new villain in town in Episode 1 and 2 of the second season of "Friendship is Magic", and, after being unsealed from the statue that has kept him at bay for hundreds of years, it is once again up to Twilight Sparkle and her many friends to deal with the incoming threat. Of course, after amassing such an enormous fan-base of unprecedented fans of all ages, there was a lot of concern amongst fans about what Season 2 might be like, given the high quality of the first season. With expectations to live up to, the show would have to pull something excellent out of the bag for these first two episodes, as they herald the future of a show that has become a beloved aspect of people's daily lives.The Return of Harmony Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

A 'Pleasant' Surprise Chapter 1
It was just at the time of sunrise as Celestia just began to raise the sun on another beautiful day in Equestria. It was the day just after the summer sun celebration and Twilight was asleep in her bed, resting off the party from last night. Just another typical Pinkie Pie party, decorations, games, music, laughing and fun. But it wasn't the party that was hitting Twilight so hard, but the apple cider and Pinkies special punch that was holding her to the sheets. The sun crept into the library's bedroom window casting its glow on the purple unicorn trying to sleep off her hangover. She winced as it finally crept up to her face and she rolled over and pulled the covers over her head trying to shield her eyes from the stinging brightness.
"Ugh why did Celestia have to raise the sun?" She groaned. " I would be perfectly content with eternal night right now "
She sat up eyes still tightly shut as she rubbed them with her hoofs, slowly opening
Luna, Lyra and Bon-Bon ReviewThe fandom that has developed in the wake of "Friendship is Magic" is largely something that I cherish and make a part of my daily life. I would like to consider myself actively involved in the community, spending a lot of time surfing Equestria Daily, commenting on various excerpts of pony news, talking to a lot of bronies both on DeviantArt and outside the site, and even lending my hand to a pony-related project or two. I love chatting to the many unique individuals who all have their own reasons for adoring the show, and I find it to be a thoroughly engaging experience to converse with other people of a similar mindset to myself. I have seen excellent remixes and mash-ups of the songs and scenes from the show and have been, frankly, amazed by the fan-made content. Only today did I see a custom Pinkie animation made by one very talented individual who should be offered a part animating on the show right away. I am also aware that some fans like the show, but prefer the fan communityLuna, Lyra and Bon-Bon Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Octavia groaned as she lifted her head off her pillow. It was the night after the Gala, and Octavia had been playing her double bass all night, virtually without break. Virtually. There had been several interruptions of her performance; however, she could not remember what exactly happened yet. She could not remember why she could not remember, until she winced in pain as her head throbbed. It all started coming back to her.
The Gala had begun like it always had; posh ponies from all over Equestria flocked to socialise. Though, not all of them were quite as posh. As that night was drawing to a close, a pink earth pony had walked in and subsequently began to dance around like a lunatic, and jump onto stage where Octavia played. She did her best to continue playing as this annoying pony continued her misdemeanours throughout the crowd.
By now she could tell that this Gala was not going to

"Engi!" The man had a dilapidated medigun trained on him. "What happened!?"
"The RED Spy," he said through gritted teeth, obviously in pain. He was covered in bloody bandages, mainly around his chest and arms. "He ambushed me Twilight, he took the plans"
The sentence hit her like a freight train. She looked around quickly, trying to piece it all together "No...No!"
"Dat's not the only thing he took " Scout's voice was barely audible, but he pointed to the regenerator. A large section was covered in knife marks, and was sparking wildly. "Ain't no respawnin anymore"

He'd always told her that things like this could happen. But there's a difference between being told something can happen, and that thing actually happening.
She'd been asleep when they'd broken in, kicking the door down, splintering the wood. She'd woken in a fright, disoriented and uncertain just what was going on. Things like this weren't unusual here, what with the sort of things that cropped up now and again.
But then strange creatures charged into her room. Things that looked like her, only not, made of metal and with strange, grating, electronic voices. She fought not to scream as they advanced on her, backing her into a corner. They were too alien to her to trigger a fight response, and instead she cowered in fear in the corner of the room, golden eyes wide, her whole body quivering, wings pressed tightly to her sides.
There was no escape.
Six of them surrounded her and from their hooves came a great storm of electricity, so much so that she was lifted from the ground, trapped

The bantam, unsatisfied that one crow would fulfill the task of waking the residents of Sweet Apple Acres, inhaled deeply and prepared to crow again when a brown leather boot came flying from an upstairs window of the nearby farmhouse. Startled, the rooster lost his balance, tumbling from the henhouse roof to the muddy yard below. With no injuries - save perhaps his wounded pride - the rooster stalked back inside the coop, all the while grumbling to himself. "The cheek! I'm only trying to do my job. Somepony is obviously on the wrong side of the bed this morning..."
Inside the house, an orange earth pony turned away from the window, stifling a yawn behind one hoof. She knew she'd have to get that boot later, but at the moment she didn't care. Why, wondered Applejack, had the rooster woken her up so early? It couldn't be more than six o'clock in the morning... Just then her eye caught the luminous dials of her beside clock.

It was late at night, far later than Spike usually stayed up. On an average night he would have been asleep hours ago, but tonight sleep just wouldn't come. He was all of 17 years old, and he was already feeling like his life was stuck in a rut. He laughed mirthlessly to himself. Life? What life? He'd spent all of his years helping Twilight with whatever needed to get done, and for the most part, getting no thanks for it. As far as he could tell, it looked like that was how things were going to stay. He had no life outside of Ponyville, and yet he didn't even really have a place in his adopted hometown. He was the only dragon for miles and miles around, and even though he'd lived here for almost 11 years now, he still drew strange looks on the street. In Spike's opinion, being one-of-a-kind was overrated.

Tiny pellets of frozen ice drove against the windows and walls of the homes and shops of Ponyville.
The wind drove them, beat them against the structures with a rattling rhythm that sent those within closer to the heat of their fires and deeper into the warming embraces of their loved ones.
For some, there was no such respite.
Out in the market square the sleeting drizzle was parted by something unseen, and as a pale blue filament of light wrapped around within itself it suddenly exploded outwards in an orb of illumination that revealed the outlines of two figures.

Sunshine spilled onto the viridian lawn as the morning sun crested over the battlements of the old castle, causing the dew still clinging to the blades to sparkle before evaporating. Twilight trotted down the steps from the south doors to enjoy a leisurely morning stroll through the gardens, as she used to do in days gone by when she recovered from being upset.
Predictably, Princess Celestia had not been there when she had awakened, nor was she down at breakfast in the royal dining room. An invitation to eat there was a lifetime affair, and it was far better than sitting with the rest of the staff awkwardly in her usual corner table while not talking to any pony. She might have learned how to make friends, but that did not stop the castle staff from being just a little skittish around her, being the personal student to a living goddess and all.

Her heart was all hollow.
After everything that happened,
She became a train wreck,
Lost and forgotten,
Blown away like wind.
She faked her smile,
She had hid her tears,
And now it's like she just dissappeared.
She was all alone,
Good for nothing like they said,
She vanished in the darkness,
Avoiding the suicidal thoughts in her head.
She battled with depression,
And tried to sew up her wounds.
She gave up,
And ran from the abuse.
Baby, Im here,
Baby, stay here.
Nothing's that bad to end and quit,
You don't deserve this!
Take a deep breath.
Ignore the insanity.
You will be alright!
Help the poor girl;
She's pale and her heart is hurt.
Isolate and cold,
Blown away like wind.
She faked her emotions,
She had hid her scars,
And lost the happiness that once forfilled her heart.
Baby, I'm here.
Baby, stay here.
Nothing's that bad to end and quit.
You don't deserve this!
Take a deep breath.
Ignore the insanity.
You will be alright, my lovely!
FiM: Mort Takes a Holiday 7Rarity sat huddled on the dressing room floor, sniffling as she beheld the task before her. On one side of her were the shoulder pads with their frayed tassels, the diamond-studded buttons and a single, chipped ruby. With them were over two dozen pieces of torn fabric, sewed together and arranged in a way that they were beginning to resemble a sleeve. Rarity found some solace in the fact the gold thread helped her know where to start, like the round edges of a jigsaw puzzle.FiM: Mort Takes a Holiday 74 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
But it was of little comfort, as the other side of her showed; there lay the rest of the suit, haphazardly piled. She levitated two pieces from the pile and brought them in front of her, bringing them together. She looked at them intently (or as well as she could, given her eyes would water still), swapping their positions, rotating them in place, going through every possible combination. When it became clear they didn't fit with one another, she groaned in a small, miserable voice, and threw one of the pieces back

The sound of water falling to the ground echoed throughout the small, cold room. Twilight Sparkle's eyes slowly slid open, as she finally regained conciousness. A few moans escaped her weary lips and she forced her tired head up off the ground. "Wha-....Where am I?" She muttered quietly to herself, as her eyes began to focus, and she got a better view of her surroundings. She was in a small room, made mostly of what seemed to be rocks, and other hard material. It seemed like a prison, the only furniture in the room consisting of a wooden bed-frame, and a small wooden table sitting cozily in the opposing corner. Ontop of the table, was some kind of record player, none like any other Twilight had seen in her time. After a few moments of her examining the room, she attempted to stand, but her knees bucked underneath her, causing her to fall back onto her rear. "Uhnf.." She placed a shakey hand on her head, attempting to ease her throbbing headache. What was going on?

Rainbow Dash stood before the entrance to the Everfree Forest, gazing up at the dark clouds above her. Raindrops masked her still tear-speckled cheeks. She narrowed her eyes and spread her wings, cursing her own exhaustion.
Rainbow kicked off from the ground, pushing upward toward the clouds. Thick raindrops pelted her face, forcing her eyes closed. Her wings begged her to let them rest, but she pushed on, regardless. Just before she reached the clouds, a sudden gust shoved her back toward the earth. She flailed wildly, desperately trying to gain control of herself. A solid wall of rain blinded her as she fought to regain control of her descent. Extending her wings at the last moment, she managed to level out

Eyes clenched, Rainbow Dash squirmed and allowed herself to sink deeper into the fluffy cloud that was her home. The afternoon Sun shone down upon her, rousing her from her slumber. She rolled onto her back and let loose a huge yawn. Sighing, the pale cyan pegasus slowly cracked open her eyes and rubbed them with her two fore-hooves. She sat up on her haunches and peeked over the edge of her cloud, gazing at the bridge to Ponyville nearby. Nopony was there.
