FlutterDash--Pilot Pt. 2A few nights later, as Rainbow Dash was putting Tank to bed, she heard a familiar voice out on the porch of her house in the clouds.FlutterDash--Pilot Pt. 24 years ago in Romance More Like This
The pegasus flew outside to find a very frightened-looking Fluttershy cowering on her porch. Instantly, Rainbow Dash's stomach twisted and she bit back a flinch. She hated seeing that fear. "Are you okay, Fluttershy?" she asked, approaching her hesitantly.
Fluttershy nodded silently, then jumped slightly as a clap of thunder resonated across the darkening skies. Dash looked past her to the skyscape. The weather pegasi were out and about, busily bouncing rain and lightning out of the cloud cover. The rainbow pegasus could have kicked herself. How could she have forgotten the weather patrol was making a storm tonight?! Another clap of thunder boomed, and Fluttershy squeaked, shivering.
"Fluttershy you flew all the way up here in a storm?" Rainbow's house was above the cloudline, so the storm raged beneath her home, not over it. The sk

A squeak to her left made Dash fly over to one side of Fluttershy's house, where she discovered her friend struggling to escape from a tiny wooden house that was obviously meant for some kind of small animal. Angel Bunny was holding onto the filly's front hooves, straining to remove her from the miniature doorway.
"Fluttershy?" Rainbow asked, flying to her and helping the yellow filly escape from her wooden confinement. "What are you doing in there?"
"Iah!" Fluttershy squealed as she popped free and tumbled on top of her liberator. She fluttered off of the squashed Rainbow Dash, blushing as she helped her friend up. "I'm sorry, Rainbow Dash. You see, Angel Bunny lets me spend the night in there with him whenever I have a nightmare."
"A nightmare?" Rainbow Dash frowned, studying her timid friend. Fluttershy had nightmares?
She nodded. "Yes. Some
FlutterDash--Pilot Pt. 3Rainbow Dash's eyes fluttered open the next morning to greet a clear, crisp sky. All the clouds had been cleared away after the storm of the previous night, having done their job and washed clean the air over Ponyville. She smiled contentedly; the morning after a storm was always the most beautiful. This particular morning was made even lovelier by the other warm presence lying against Dash in her cloud bed. She smiled warmly. Fluttershy was still sleeping, so Dash laid her head back down against her, sighing contentedly. Nothing had happened last night, just a few soft, shy kisses. The blue pegasus had burned with desire, but since it was their first night together, she hadn't wanted to offend the sensitive Fluttershy.FlutterDash--Pilot Pt. 34 years ago in Romance More Like This
Slowly, green-blue eyes opened. "Rainbow Dash?" she asked sleepily, rolling over to face the other pegasus. Dash smiled at her. "Good morning, Fluttershy," she said, leaning down and kissing the tip of her nose. Fluttershy blushed, smiling up at her friend. "Good mornin

(Starring Spike and Twilight)
There are a great number of questions that everypony goes through life that they wish could be answered early on. Will they live a long, healthy life? Will they become rich beyond their wildest dreams? Of course, some questions are alot more trivial, such as whether or not the Cloudsdale Angels will win the seasonal championships this year. But there is one question that everybody, from alicorns to zebras, from rabbits to dragons, has wanted to know:
Does the one that I love, love me in return?
The story I am about to relate to you deals with that very same question.
Deep inside the Ponyville Library, there lives a certain creature of which few ponies have ever dealt with, and of which fewer have lived to tell of the experience... It is neither pony nor griffin, nor zebra nor dog. No, it is something much more fearsome, much stranger, and by far more deadly! I am talking to you, of course, about a dragon! A gian

Celestia's sun shined bright over Sweet Apple Acres. The morning rays glistened off of the still fresh dew spritzed about the trees as many ponies diligently worked the fields, bucking the ripe crop from their branches.
"I just don't get why you needed me out here so early in the day," Rainbow Dash complained, bucking at a tree for the third time to make it release its fruit. "You know I like my sleep, AJ. And besides, this is really an earth pony job!"
Applejack looked back to her friend in frustration. "Ah needed ya out here because yer the strongest of our friends after me, and we need all the help we can get!"
She walked over to the tree Dash had been striking. "And ya ain't doin' it right!" Spinning on her heels, AJ landed a sharp buck to the tree, immediately being rewarded with a raining hail of fruit falling into the baskets below. "It ain't in the legs, Sug'. Ya gotta put yer whole body in it."

"But Dashie," Pinkie protested, "If you don't tell her you'll never be happy."
"I know," Rainbow said looking down, "But Fluttershy's been my friend since we were fillies. She knows everything about me." There was more to it than that. Fluttershy was the only pony who Rainbow could drop the brave face and allow herself to be vulnerable. 'Fluttershy let's me just be me,' Rainbow thought, 'I love her, but I can't.' She shook her head and said flatly, "I ask too much from Fluttershy as it is. I can't ask this from her."
"But," Pinkie said, "What if she likes you too?" She remembered the day Rainbow told her she was in love with Fluttershy. Rainbow had returned from a picnic with Fluttershy and looked sad. When Pinkie asked her what was bothering her, Rainbow swore her to secrecy and told her that she was in love with Fluttershy. Pinkie was stunned and asked if she told her and she began to cry. Pinkie had never seen Rainbow cry and this just

Warning: Always drink in moderation, unless you too want to turn into a middle-aged writer of MLP fanfiction! I suggest medium strength beer for the rules as they stand, although hardcore drinkers may opt for shots.
Drink = a sip, while Finish your drink means what it says!
Take a drink whenever:
- the opening or closing sequence plays
If you choose to skip either, you must finish your drink. Shame on you!
- somepony refers to 'friendship'
Additionally, you must say "Friendship is Magic!" or finish your drink
- anypony drinks something, even if it's just hotsauce
Additionally, you must say "Confound these ponies! They drive me to drink" or finish your drink
- anypony refers to Princess Celestia
Additionally, you must say "Another thousand years!" or finish your drink
Supporters of the New Lunar Republic may choose to say "Down with the Tyrant!" instead
- Derpy Hooves appears on screen

Spy's brain worked as fast as it could, given the war zone around him. The snow on the ground was slowly disappearing as volley after volley rocked their makeshift shelter.
His horn shimmered, and he disappeared from view. He stepped gingerly around the snow, not wanting to leave any trace of himself. As the specter crossed the battlefield undetected, his mind traveled to what led him here.
"Miss Sparkle, I must thank you for this opportunity." The dark blue unicorn adjusted the saddlebag on his back. A light blue glow that was not his own enveloped his tie, adjusting it tightly. "Miss Rarity, you're choking me" The magic dispelled, and Spy readjusted the tie himself. Rarity grinned sheepishly. The fasionista admired her own hard work, a tuxedo in the spitting image of the suit she wore only two months ago, now made for Spy's new job.

The ballroom lay in ruins. Chunks of marble littered the tiled floor, scattered around in broken heaps that nearly meshed together to create a solid blanket of rubble. The local band's instruments, dented and fractured far beyond recognition, lay in assymetrical positions around the room. Many of the animals from the garden still skittered about through various rooms, their loosely-aimed sprints unceasing until they'd explored every last nook and cranny within the castle walls, leaving muddy pawprints everywhere. Many of the royal guards and servants were tending to the enormous mess, for the most part ignoring the animals, but the occasional shout and hoof chase was not uncommon. After the pillars collapsed, most of the remaining partygoers had moved outside into the still-intact garden, small groups of ponies still gossiping and chatting about the six mares who were responsible for this disaster.

Mending a Broken Rainbow- Chapter 5
The distinct smell of a warm spring morning filled the property of Sweet Apple Acres, carried by a soft breeze through the many apple trees. The bright blue sky above, once a luring land of adventure to Ponyville's own Rainbow Dash, now carried no interest to the cyan Pegasus know as Dashie as she continued her mornings work, filling barrel after barrel with sweet delicious apples. Instead of daring tricks, and her competitive spirit, Dashie's mind was occupied only with thoughts of her new life with Applejack. Her life without Rainbolt; without needless complications. Without the Wonderbolts.
It was perfect.
Applejack didn't need to know about Rainbolt, right? That would just cause problems. No, Dashie was sure that she would keep her counter part a secret for as long as possible. Still... the Pegasus couldn't help but find her thoughts steering towards the previous night, just after Applejack fell asleep. A loud explosion filled the air, shocking D

Rainbow Dash didn't even need to check the screenname behind the post, or look for the Blueball Blitz avatar, or read the signature with the quote from Hayn Rand. She was used to seeing that unflattering image of Spitfire blown up with "FAT FLANK" written across the back of her jumpsuit in heavily fragmented red letters.

A Night (to Try) to Remember
Rarity inhaled deeply, letting the pleasant aroma of her drink fill her nostrils. The snifter glass gently shifted about, buoyed by her magical aura, and its burgundy contents swirled along the transparent walls. She tipped the glass to her lips, gracefully sipping its contents in a way that only years of cultured drinking could imbue. A satisfied smile crossed her lips as the cognac warmed her throat as it drained to her stomach. She was almost finished with her third glass of the night, which would put her just at her tolerance level for this particular beverage; such a shame that her friends didn't know their own tolerances.
At that thought, she looked about the bar from her seat in the corner booth. While she wasn't the type to normally socialize in such establishments, this bar was cultured enough for her tastes, being well designed, well built, and having a satisfactory selection of

She had arrived at the party at Rainbow Dash's cloud home later than the rest of her friends who had already been waiting somewhat impatiently for her.

Spike was out of the house for once, away on an adventure with Apple Bloom, and Twilight Sparkle was making good use of the time to get as much study done as possible. She sat on her bed reading a book called "The Ursa Major in its Natural Habitat" it was a fascinating book, and she was so deeply engrossed in it that for a long time she didn't realise there was somepony knocking on the front door of the house.
"Is that Spike back already? Why doesn't he just come in the door's unlocked for goodness sake! Oh Spike..." But when she got up and went to the door, she saw that it wasn't Spike it was one of the Pegasus ponies who took travellers between Ponyville and Canterlot.

She panted, heart pounding as she stood in the center of town. She could hear the blood coursing through the veins in her ears, sounding like the roar of a distant ocean. Her mind was numb, barely registering where she was or that she was covered with a sticky red substance, the pungent scent of copper filling the air. Her eyes slowly fell to an object on the ground: a stained knife that glinted in the midday sun. Next to it was a growing red pool. Her eyes trained on the pool and slowly moved to its source.
The deed had been done.
Luna's Moon hung high above Equestria, its gentle rays bathing the countryside in an eerie glow as it slowly trekked across the cobalt-hued sky. Near Ponyville, the light illuminated a lone figure winging somewhat less gracefully than normal above the town. It was very late and she was exhausted, but Rainbow Dash didn't ca

The monthly pilgrimage to Canterlot to carry out Twilight Sparkle's every bibliographic whim was not something he particularly enjoyed; not only was there the hassle of paying all the inevitable fines or getting crushed by the tottering pile of books that these visits seemed to result in, but Twilight's requests were getting more and more bizarre.The Star In Yellow - Part One4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Snatching the volumes 'The Sociology of Goats and Griffons' and 'Baking with Goats' from the shelf, he threw them into the cart with a sigh. "That'll have to do!"

To the southeast of the Rambling Rock Ridge, lies the Hayseed Forest. This place is home to many creatures big and small, mean and kind. Not much is known about this place, nor the swamps that reside further inward, because very few ponies ever come here.
Not long after the six little ponies divided into groups and went their separate ways, both Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie arrive at the edge of the woods. The cyan pegasus with the rainbow-colored mane is flying above the trees, trying to scout ahead. Unfortunately, the darkness of the night makes it difficult. The pink pony with the puffy mane is just below the other, skipping merrily through the forest.
Realizing it is hopeless, the tomboyish Pegasus flies down to rejoin her friend, "It's so dark I can hardly see anything in front of me!" she complains.

The quiet knocking on the window broke the near-silence in the cottage. Fluttershy blinked her eyes open, sitting up and stretching before looking to her window to identify the source of the noise. She wasn't all that surprised to see her best friend Rainbow Dash hovering just outside, the light of the moon lighting up her multicolored mane. Her expression was also what she expected; she looked troubled, tired, even a little embarrassed. Fluttershy held back a smile and quickly made her way over to the window to unlock it and swing it wide open.
"Hey," Rainbow greeted her, brushing her mane out of her eyes briefly.

"C'mon Twilight! Everypony's waiting for you at Sugar Cube Corner!" Spike had had to half-drag Twilight from the library, where she had spent the evening reading and drinking mostly drinking. He'd found her curled up on the couch nursing a bottle of vanilla-lemon vodka, the floor a pile of crumpled books and empty bottles, and she'd resisted every effort of his to get her to come with him. He'd tried to pull her by her tail at first, and when that hadn't worked he'd pushed on her rump as she dug her hooves in stubbornly, but now she had finally given up and was walking alongside him, swaying as she went.
"At what where? Sugar Cube Corner?" she slurred. After half a bottle of vodka, Twilight was three sheets to the wind, and she found it difficult to put one hoof in front of the other. In fact, they threatened to tangle up underneath her at any moment, and she was glad o

As for the fun being had at it, she was in agony.
