Trixie groaned and stretched as she woke up. Her legs felt like lead. Opening her eyes revealed a familiar ceiling. It was the middle of the night, a half moon providing only just enough light to see by. Trixie wondered if she could go more than a week without passing out anytime soon. She glanced up as if to see her own forehead, and focused for a moment. Sure enough, a pale blue light emanated from her horn.
"Hah hah!" she shouted in excitement. A murmur caught her attention. She looked over and found Fluttershy asleep on her stool, just like a week ago. Trixie smiled and chuckled. She gazed on at Fluttershy for a moment, before a small part of her reminded her of her situation. Her smile turned into a deep frown. She forced herself out of bed on the far side from Fluttershy.
"I've taken enough from you." Trixie whispered. Her horn continued to glow as she enveloped Fluttershy in a magical aura. She gently lifted Fluttershy from her seat and pulled back the covers. She slid

Spring was in full swing for the land of Equestria. Throughout the town of Ponyville, All of the citizens were enjoying the beautiful weather. Whether it was from working in the fields to relaxing at the park, they all basked in the warmth of Princess Celestia's sun. At Sweet Apple Acres, it was just another day of bucking apples from the many trees that covered the farm. Near the giant red barn, an apple tree shook and its apples fell from it into a yellow bucket. An orange mare with golden yellow hair, a brown Stetson hat, and emerald green eyes stood with a tired, but proud look smiled at the full bucket. The orange mare, Applejack, took the bucket and made her way out of the orchards. She made her way into the barn, where many more buckets of apples laid there scattered. She placed the bucket amongst one of the few empty spaced, and made her way out. She

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

Chapter 1 - Burnished Silver
Twilight broke on the horizon, the sun peeking above tree tops and mountains as it rose. Small rays of light drifted through Twilight Sparkle's bedroom, falling upon her face. As slowly as possible, she opened her eyes and rubbed the sleep from them. Rousing herself, Twilight slipped out of the downy bed that had always seemed much too large for her, and walked to the window to gaze out at the land. It seemed surreal to her, the ruling Lady of Canterlot.
Why me? she wondered, as was her daily tradition. Why did everypony choose me? I never asked for this... this... Rainbow Dash had always told her it was an honor, but she could never bring herself to believe that. Twilight looked out the window, nearly all of Equestria in sight. The land she had been chosen to rule and to protect, and the land that was divided and torn apart.
Twilight turned from the window with a sigh. Walking across the massive roomformerly Princes

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 last rays of sunlight had long since faded when Celestia alit upon the highest balcony of the tallest tower in Canterlot.

The princess of the day had little use for th

She coughed into a tissue, then blew her dripping nose.

On either side of Applebloom, her best friends Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo were equally suffering.

Optics in his helmet made that problem trivial, scanning over the small cracks and impact lines that scattered the ground he hovered over, "Looks like this one might've been harmless."

Judging a Horse Show
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic premiered October 10 2010. The show was developed by Lauren Faust, who previously wokred on The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. After a critical essay was posted on the imageboard 4chan.org, discussing the author's disguest with it, older people began to watch the show.

Sunset - Chapter 4: EclipseDeep in the heart of the Everfree Forest, maybe less than half a mile from the rotting castle at its heart, sat a large pond that sparkled in the noon-time sun. Creatures of all sizes and shapes idled by the cool water that day, the oppressive heat at its height.Sunset - Chapter 4: Eclipse4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A low roar sounded from above the pond, compelling the creatures to look towards the sky at the incoming threat. Birds took flight as the animals on the ground ran away, almost as if they could sense the torrent of distress coming their way. The roar became steadily louder, a purple point on the horizon growing in size and ferocity. Any creature that had not fled by then sealed its fate.
In an instant, the once placid pond erupted with a bang, a huge jet of water piercing into the sky as the lavender streak struck into the heart of the body. Large waves crested out from the source as if the edges of the trapped liquid were the mighty ocean itself. Those animals that did not flee were swept away by the inland tidal wave, back o
My Thoughts on Celestia and LunaAnd so we come to the two regal sisters themselves. Celestia and Luna, the Princesses of My Little Pony.

Let me start by addressing a particular complaint I came across when I first started watching the show. That issue is the fact that they're both Princesses in a land where no other form of royalty seems to exist. It was argued that because there are no older monarchs above them, like a king or something, that they should be called Queens instead of Princesses.
Well firstly, let me say right now that it is not unusual or unheard of for countries to be ruled by princes and princesses rather than kings or queens. These types of nations are known as principalities and while I'm not familiar with any such nations that exist at the moment, I do know that they were at one point fairly common in Europe,

"What about bakers?"
"Ugh." Scootaloo buried her face into her hooves as Apple Bloom looked at the ground in disappointment. Both fillies sat on the porch, trying to come up with new ways to try to get their cutie mark. So far, however, all they could come up with were activities they already tried.
"I can't think of anything else."
"Well try then, ah wanna do some crusadin' today and ah can't if we don't have any ideas." Apple Bloom said, Scootaloo rolling her eyes in response.
"Fine, I'll keep thinking."
Scootaloo continued to brainstorm different ideas, something she was never the best at, and Apple Bloom did the same. But the third member of their group was strangely quiet. She was there, sitting on the porch, but her mind wasn't on cutie mark crusading. She wasn't even looking at her friends. Her attention was drawn to the stallion in front of the house, bucking some of the nearby apple trees in cl

The city of Canterlot was alive with activity. Under the direction of Princess Luna, the royal guard worked in tandem with construction ponies and other civilians to clear away the rubble and debris from the ruined streets. The azure alicorn stood on the balcony of a palace tower, giving orders to the last of the waiting pegasus captains. As the pegasi darted off toward their tasks, Luna breathed a heavy sigh and retreated into the tower. The drapes on the windows were drawn closed, and the only illumination came from what little sunlight entered through the balcony door. She walked softly to the edge of a grand, royal bed and sat down, gently pulling the blankets back to reveal the sleeping face of Princess Celestia.
The day princess sweated feverishly in her slumber, her eyes moving rapidly under her

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

"Nightmare Moon is... back?"
Luna nodded and Twilight's mouth moved, forming words that came out as faint whispers and quiet babbling.

"That's not what I'm worried about. How long have you known?"
Twilight's eyes were focused and her fear seemed to have rapidly shifted to anger. Luna wondered if being screamed at by Twilight for making a huge mess of things was better or worse than having to fight Nightmare Moon again on her own.

As Twilight and Spike walked back to the library, the young dragon just seemed to have one question on his mind.
“But do you like me too?” asked Spike.
Twilight giggled slightly. “Yes Spike, for the fiftieth time yes.”
“But you said you loved me. Does that mean you like me or you like me as a friend or maybe you-“
Spike’s seemingly endless babbling was quickly cut short when Twilight suddenly planted a quick kiss on his lips. “Does that answer the question, Spike?” Twilight asked with a warm smile.
As soon as Twilight’s lips met his, Spike froze. The only sign of life in his shocked face was a quickly growing blush. After a few more seconds the purple dragon spoke. “Uhhhhhhh, yes?”
Twilight couldn’t help but giggle at Spike’s innocent answer. “Okay then. Shall we continue back to the library now?

For new readers, it is ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE that you read the series "To Fix You", before undertaking this series. If you do not, this story will not make sense.
Like many other small towns in Equestria, most ponies taking residence in Ponyville know one another. For anypony living in such a town, knowing one pony means knowing nearly every other pony. However, it has been said that the only pony to know absolutely everypony else in town is the resident pink party pony, Pinkie Pie. It is extremely rare, therefore, for a resident of Ponyville, Pinkie Pie in particular, to see somepony they have yet to make the acquaintance of. The comradery and friendliness offered by the small town ensures that the citizens of the town will always know quickly whenever there is a new stranger in their midst, for it

The moon peeked above the horizon as Luna landed in the garden outside the farm. She glanced up and watched the pale orb and the thousands of stars sparkling in the black sky. This was the time when she felt most comfortable, but there was little consolation in the sky tonight. She didn't know how much time she could expect to have before Trixie and Twilight returned, and she had no idea what she was even looking for or what she should expect to find. She turned her gaze to the farm. There was no light in the windows, or smoke from the chimney. The place seemed completely abandoned. She hoped it wasn't merely a ruse.
With slow steps, Luna walked up to the old door and focused on the lock. A click and a creak later the door stood open before her, a portal into the darkness and the unknown. She stood for a bri
