Soarin with the Rainbow chapter 10
Soarin trotted around nervously, treading a circle into the training field with his pacing. Twilight's habits were rubbing off on him. The elements were nowhere to be found. They all should be here by now. The trials would start soon, and Soarin knew that Spitfire would take every opportunity to thwart Rainbow and make sure the cyan Pegasus never joined the team. Ever since Rainbow, with Soarin by her side, confronted her at the last stunt show, Spitfire had refused to talk to either of them, which was making team practices hard. Even worse, for the past month she'd been actively trying to stop their meetings, refusing to give Soarin time off, and trying to override the trainers when they disputed that order. The fire-maned mare had told him, very pointedly, that she was not expecting any new members from this try-out. Spitfire was well known for going through with her threats, and Soarin was confused and worried. Spitfire's hate seemed to have sprung

It was a regular day in Ponyville the town were going about their daily lives, the purple with green spine teenage dragon, Spike was lying on the crass enjoying the fresh air in the environment suddenly, he saw something on the sky flying toward him.

Luna's Best Night Ever 11The first thing that Luna noticed about Fluttershy, besides her extreme shyness and delicate nature, was her bedside manner. The moment she had been filled in on what had happened she had asked to be moved next to where Twilight was to assist in binding her wound and examining the damage. Luna had honestly expected her to be more squeamish, but she supposed that spending all her free time serving as a caretaker for animals had exposed her to many unsavory things, and her overflowing concern for her friend likely blinded the pegasus to the grotesque nature of their work.Luna's Best Night Ever 114 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Nightmare Moon had, thankfully, missed Twilight's heart, but the wound was deep and had more than likely punctured a lung. Luna tried casting a simple healing spell to stop the bleeding, but her horn ached too much to focus properly. Once they were certain Twilight could be moved safely Applejack carefully lifted Twilight onto Luna's back to take her to the hospital, before scooping Fluttershy up to do the same, and wit

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

Luna's smile seemed to go on forever. With her wings spread wide, feathers catching the breeze, it felt like she could glide on forever. The new moon illuminated the countryside with a glow that rivaled the majesty of even her elder sister's sunrise. Far below her the tiny homes in Ponyville each came to life in turn as candles were lit and placed carefully on windowsills.
It was always hard on Luna to know that most of her night would be missed by many of the ponies that lived in her kingdom. Sometimes the thought of it tormented and shook her to the foundation of her soul. Yet after her exile the bitterness and pain had abetted. She no long

"Ya sure did, sugarcube," Applejack replied, giving the sky-blue pegasus next to her a quick, sidelong glance. True to form, the other mare did not notice it, or the slight quaver of nervousness in the earth pony's voice.
Applejack wasn't much given to planning, she was the first to admit it. She preferred to tackle things straight on when they came up. But that didn't mean she couldn't be more cunning and subtle on the rare occasions when she thought those qualities were required. This was one of those, and so far everything had gone right according to her plan. Now, if she could just gather the courage for the next step!
"Okay, was that all you wanted from me?" Dash continued, stirring her wings with a faint rustle. "Because I think it's just about the time for my special 'Job Well Done' afternoon nap!"
"No!" Applejack yelped, the word coming out

Soarin grumbled to himself as he walked down the street, out of Rarity's hearing. The foalish tie that she'd laced him into was slowly choking him. The stupid jacket she'd roped him into was pinning his wings to his back, restricting them and making him itchy. And the black mask, that the white unicorn had summoned from places unknown, had slipped over one ear, trapping it. He didn't care if this was the highest form of fashion ponykind had ever devised. He wanted to move, to be free.
Throughout the long, boring hour (or was it hours?) that had seemed never ending, he had fought against her treatment. Slipping out of clothing and tearing away at anything with sequins. Once, the Wonderbolt had even made it halfway out of the door before the unicorn torturer's devious magic had dragged him back in. Eventually he'd just submitted to Rarity's attentions, letting her have her way while secretly promising to himself that he'd escape the clothing as soon as he could. Because of the element of

Spike was afraid. White Whirl was such a tiny, fragile thing, it seemed like the slightest puff of smoke would blow her away. The wisps of rainbow mane floated in the breeze, having a life of their own. Whirly looked up at the strange creature that filled her vision. It didn't seem to be dangerous, this purple smiling face.
For one endless moment the two very different creatures stared at each other. Spike came even closer, fascinated by the baby. Then the silence was broken by a shocked yelp of pain.
Whirly clung to Spike's nose, gurgling happily. She didn't know who this purple face was, but it was hers now. Her newest, bestest toy was whimpering, fighting the instinct to rip off whatever was attached to his nose.
"I'm here, Spike! Whirly, let go!"
Cloud pulled on the little foal, who was surprisingly strong. Giving up on forcing the baby to let go, she whisked away, grabbing toys from the floor. Windfall, seeing what Cloud was doing, started scooping up ra

Twilight Sparkle finished placing new curtains on the windows of the shop, "I get that Rarity, but I still don't understand why you're being so insistent on having the date here at your boutique."
The white unicorn turned to her friend and laughed, "I have my reasons, but rest assured that it is for Fluttershy."
Twilight tilted her head, "Why?"
"You know how timid the little creature can be. Just imagine the amount of stress she'll be under on a date." Rarity waved a hoof in front of her face, "No. I will not allow my dear friend to suffer any stress. She will be worried enough on making a good impression on Pinkie."
Twilight stopped decorating the table, "Ok, now you're going to have to explain that one to me. They've been friends for years. How could there be a first impression?"

The white unicorn could only laugh, "Almost finished. You still have yet to tell me why you need such a gaudy thing."
Fluttershy looked down slightly embarrassed, "well, my cheering is too weak, so I thought if Rainbow Dash could see how much I support her it would make up for it."
"Well, given the thought you put into this, I'm certain she will appreciate it." Rarity continued to sew and then after a few minutes, "there, it is finally finished."
"Yay," Fluttershy hugged Rarity, "thank you very much. I can't wait to show Rainbow." She packed the items into her saddlebags and made her way out of the boutique. On her way out she passed Sweetie Belle, "how are your plans coming along, Sweetie Belle?"

Fluttershy and Pinkie shared a sleeping bag and were lying alongside each other. Rainbow Dash couldn't help smiling at the sight of the yellow pony covering Pinkie with one of her wings. Pinkie had her face close to Fluttershy's ear, and she ruffled her mane with almost each breath. Both ponies slept soundly with smiles on their faces.
Rainbow touched her head and thought, 'It's worth it to see them happy.' She knew that she wouldn't be able to get any more sleep tonight, so she tried to get off the couch. The floor felt strange and when Rainbow looked down, she was confused for a moment.

Over the following week, the usual sketches and fabric swatches of high fashion dress designs that lined the walls of the Bijou Boutique's workroom were rapidly covered over with a profusion of diagrams and drawings of different wing shapes. A chalkboard filled with magical equations stood in the corner, with disused ponikins shoved behind it looking as if they were taking shelter.
Twilight Sparkle reached up to pull a pair of goggles down over her eyes and skimmed over her notes for the umpteenth time, calling out to the adolescent dragon stationed in the corner with a quill and clipboard in his claws. "Okay Spike, lets start recording the proceedings now." She cleared her throat, assuming an official tone of voice. "Sparkle/Belle Personal Flight Harness, Mark One, Test One."

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

Twilight Sparkle sat in front of the large monument to Luna and stared up at the tribute to the fallen princess of the night. Her death had come as a shock to everyone, even now the details were kept secret from the rest of the world. Only the royal family knew the truth. Knew of her weakening, how the nightmare from so long ago had threatened to return and overwhelm the princess and how Luna had sacrificed herself to keep it from happening. No pony knew about how the elements had no effect this time, in keeping the darkness from Luna's soul. The public simply believed she had grown ill.

Excerpts from the Candid Sayings of Celestia as recorded by her friends
The rain from the dark cloud sprinkled into her open mouth, small respite from a growing thirst. Not quite getting her fill, Celestia swallowed a gulp and sat there with hunched shoulders. Though the water soaked her all the way through and chilled her to the bone, she made no move.
The pegasi's laughter and jeering slowly died away once their amusement from the prank dwindled. The trouble makers, those bent on antagonizing Celestia, slung a barbed comment or two at her, hoping to provoke her to new heights. In a gesture not entirely unfeigned, Celestia did not respond, or even glance up. Her frustration at the pegasi felt pointless and her attempts fruitless. Her only recourse was to take their barbs and wait until they gave up.
The cold wasn't entirely evil to her. The pitter-pat of the droplets across her back worked to soot

The Second Battle of Everfree Forest was the decisive battle during the war; it was here in the forest that even now many fear to tread that saw the fortunes of Equestria reverse from broken to a military machine that would expel the changeling hordes from Equestria. As detailed in the previous chapter, the first battle was a completely unmitigated disaster for the forces of Her Majesty. It is from defeat that lessons are learned the best and the outcome of the Second Battle of Everfree Forest proves that moral all too well.
The new leader of the army, Red Spear who had taken command from the now-dead Zama, learned well from the mistakes of his old commander: The first was to utilize the heavy infantry of th

The mist that guarded the entrance to the pegasi's lair whisked around Celestia as she plunged in, leaving a cool, wet touch. The world vanished in the cloud at the cave's entrance, swallowed completely by fog so thick she thought it might be solid beneath her hoof were she to reach out and touch it. Laden and dense with water, the air felt heavy and cloying. Tiny droplets of moisture clung to Celestia's eyelashes, coat, and stray hairs. It muffled all sound except her breathing and the hoof falls of her and her sister; obscured all sight as effective as a curtain.
Any second now, she'd meet the pegasi. If she didn't walk blindly into a wall first.

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.

"Now a rainbow's tale isn't quite as nice
As the story we knew of sugar and spice"
There's long been rumors as to how, exactly, rainbows are made in Equestria. While a great amount of Pegasi ponies are employed in the Rainbow department of the weather factory, almost all of them do the low-end work. What's know is that great streams of Spectra, the individual colours of the rainbow, flow through large grates and into vast vats. From there, workers carefully and equally mix the spectra into the coagulated rainbow pools that dot and run through the factory and surrounding city. Next, that mixture is pumped to the floor below, where other employees atomize it and store it until the active weather Pegasi deploy it in field.
However, no one knows how individual Spectra is made. Supplies are never seen being brought in, leaving not even a clue what goes into a rainbow. Tourists, when visiting the factory, are treated to an extremely foreboding and plain

Excerpts from the Candid Sayings of Celestia as recorded by her friends
The border between the unicorn controlled forest and the wilds remained unclear, but Celestia saw she had passed it. Accustomed to a clear floor, telling trail signs, and the subtle influence of magic cultivation, the white mare with the pink mane now ran through a forest filled with underbrush, decayed logs, and hanging vines. Choosing clear paths amidst the uncared growth, she slowed to a smooth gallop. Immediate danger laid out of reach, now she needed to sustain the flight and gain distance. But her thoughts kept turning inward to an anxious question. Where is she? For all the reassurance of the spell's message, her sister's escape remained just that: a spell's message.
Shoving through the clinging b
