The morning sun rose, shining upon Ponyville. Beams of light came through the windows of the living quarters at Ponyville Library. Slowly moving across the floor until they landed on a small basket in the middle of the room, containing a small purple dragon named Spike.
The light woke him, and as he stirred in his bed, opening his eyes to the world, a question ran through his head, on one wall, he saw the answer indicated on a wall calendar. It was Saturday, and the day before, Friday, was crossed out. But he could still read what was well-marked in Friday's square: "Rarity's Funeral"
He stood, yawned and stretched his arms wide, recovering from a long night's sleep. He looked over at the dresser at one end of the room, and noticed a gold ring sitting on top of it. Getting out of his bed, he walked over, and examined the ring, it was exactly as he last left it, tiny fragments of the original gemstone were still lodged in
A report on Bronies.There are many questions that rise when it comes to Bronies and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic on the Internet. Why are there so many people on the internet who watch the show? Why is it that most of those people are teenage and adult males? And what is the meaning behind the whole Brony community?A report on Bronies.3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Those questions are what can drive internet users to the sensation that blew the web's mind, or turn them against it.
Let's start with the origins of the web sensation.
On 10th October 2010, the first episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic aired on US TV channel: The Hub. At first, only those of the show's target audience would have been expected to watch the show but that was just a theory. After the show's first episode aired, the show caught the attention of not only young girls, but older users who were aged at least fourteen years and older (some probably being younger) who were male. They were users of the website known as 4chan who began to comment on how they enjoyed the

What was I thinking?
A star-adorned tiara plopped onto Twilight Sparkle's bed.
It all looked to so good in my head! The actual outfit even looked good! At least to me... but I'm no designer, am I?
Two oversized, star-plastered sets of earrings and bows followed.
And the whole time, I pushed her to make it. Constantly correcting her over the most minor of details, forcing her to abandon her design sensibilities, and being ungrateful about a dress that she had offered to make me for free!
That dress, cluttered with animal and constellation designs, joined her jewelry on the bed with a soft ploomf. Twilight looked at the ensemble, only now finally able to see it for the trainwreck it was.
Whew. Back to some semblance of sanity. But the damage is already done. It's my fault. I asked for this, and I got exactly what I wanted... at the expense of a good friend's image. Maybe even her career. I'm the absolute worst.
She walked out of her bedroom and d

1- The Creation of the Universe and the Birth of the Alicorn Gods
In the beginning, there was nothing but empty darkness. There was no time, no sun or moon, and no ponies. But one day, if you could call it a day, there was a tremendous explosion of light brighter then anything that had ever been or ever will be and out of the Light came two alicorns. The first was named Uronus and the second was named Geia. Both alicorns looked around at the space the Light had made and both set forth to explore this universe. Uronus created the abstract side of the universe, taming the storms of magic that were leftover from the Great explosion of Light and distributing it evenly across the universe. Geia created the physical side of the universe, making meteors that turned into planets and making the stars and moons. The alicorns looked at their work and were pleased and both alicorns knew each other and by doing so begated more alicorns to wonder the universe. These alicorns were born

Traveling for a pony takes a lot longer on hoof than in a machine. This was the number one lesson Flim learned as he made his way back to Ponyville. It had taken him three times as long to travel the same distance he had traveled in the Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000.
Flim noticed the small town of Ponyville coming into view. Jumping behind a bush, in a way that only a childish yet fully grown stallion can. After staying the night in a small and eccentric village, Flim came across a joke shop. Just the thing he needed.
Flim had played a prank on his brother a couple years back, which had involved coat dye and a lot of screaming. Coat die would keep him perfectly disguised in Ponyville, as they would most likely run him out at first glance.
Now behind a bush, Flim replaced his usually cream colored coat with a bright blue. It was perfect, no one would recognize him now! It was the perfect plan. Flim returned to the path a continued on his way to Ponyville, completely unaware of the blu

Two seasons have come and gone now, each one filled with beautiful animation and stunning dialogue. Most importantly both seasons brought new found inspiration and insightful views into our daily lives.
I wish not to take up too much of your time; I wish only to say a few things on my own behalf to everypony out there who wishes to hear them.
Although it is tempting to bring up the cliché that perhaps nopony else feels the same way as I do, I cannot for I know that there are many others with the same views as mine; others whose lives have been touched by these candy-colored ponies and their spectacular adventures, who have also felt a newfound sort of warmth inside from their voices and their ideals. This fandom is truly magical. Not once since I have become a brony have I been denigrated by another member of the pony community. Instead I have found more friends than I could have ever imagined.
Others may one day ask "just who are the bronies?" Note I said "are" and not "were" bec

A silvery blue sky was filled with scattered white clouds. On the ground, swamplands were filled with exotic animals unique to the land, with trees bending over, framing the sky and surrounding a small bench, out-of-place in the alien world. Three bodies dominated the sky. One had a greenish hue, and stripes of various shades, it could be seen just hovering at the horizon, two-thirds of it hidden by the world itself. Near the green giant, was a smaller moon, which was orange and smooth. At best guess, it might be a world of sand, or liquid. With so little definition it was the only explanation. Directly above the land was a bright orange star. It bathed the land in an amber glow, and on the bench, in the middle, reading a book and enjoying it all, was a young man named Eli Wallace.
"MWAH!" A bird's call rang out. Eli lowered his book, and looked towards the source of the noise.

There comes a time in every young dragon's life, when thoughts turn to love. Within dragon society this time is full of celebration and joy, as they find their first mate and, in some cases, settle down for a lifetime of happiness. Conflict in this department, while common, is quickly quashed among them, as one of the core tenants of dragon society is to save your strength for the real fights. Time and energy is too precious to waste on lover's quarrels. Rules clearly set out how to resolve romantic disputes. Unfortunately, for one dragon, these rules are an unknown, a complete mystery. Which is a real pity for him, because this week, if anyone would need those rules, it's him.
The sun was just beginning to set in Ponyville, as a young purple dragon named Spike was getting ready for a major event in his life: His first date. He applied a bit of cologne he got the day before, not too much, he didn't want to sme

Rain hit the roof of the cloud home, making small thuds as two pegasi laid side by side in a warm bed. Fluttershy had come over to her dear friend, Rainbow Dash's home to spend the night. She never liked being home alone while there was a storm, so she would escape to her filly-hood friends and spend the night and also some quality time between just the two of them.
Fluttershy watched her friend sleeping beside her, wishing she could experience the same but, no matter how hard she tried; sleep would continue to deprive from her. Fluttershy turned over to face the window and watched the rain pour down the panels.
The rain reminded her of her first day of flight camp. Also when she first met Rainbow, and the first storm they experienced together

As it turned out, it wasn't very hard for the ponies to find their favorite treats at all. They liked everything (since they had taste buds for two they rarely came across anything they wouldn't like). The Cakes let them eat as much as they wanted, since they felt so bad for the girls. The Spa-treatment was nice as well (AppleDash was opposed to it at first but eventually she came around). PinkieShy couldn't wait to get started, but as soon as it did her face distorted from a happy grin to a look of utter devastation. She had stayed that way throughout the entire visit, and once she even cried when asked how she wanted her massage. It wasn't a bad visit, all three of them were satisfied; it was just different.
Spike had done as Rarity had asked and sent the 'Princess of the night' a message, requesting transport to Canterlot Castle. Luna had immediately replied the letter from her friends:

Fabric flew through the air as sewing machines buzzed and threads weaved. A white unicorn was hard at work preparing an ensemble for a client. "Work," she said to herself. "There's always so much to do, which I suppose is a good thing, of course. Naturally I should expect an increase in my work load as my clients get bigger and bigger. Oh my! It's such an exciting thought! Rarity's designs worn by the most regal ponies in Equestria! Now, now, dear, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves."
In the midst of her external monologue, her timer rang.
"Oh dear, is it that time already?"
She swiftly grabbed her robe and galloped out the door to meet a certain yellow Pegasus at Ponyville's spa. It was a small business, as the luxuries of a spa were not affordable to the average pony, but being one of the high class ponies in Ponyville, Rarity could afford to take her and Fluttershy weekly. They normally discussed current events and minor gossip, of course with the dress maker running the conve

Applejack asked, "Brother are these supposed to fall when applebucking?"
"Eenope," was the only answer the big red stallion could give his sister.

A young Celestia awoke to stifled cries in the night. Her vibrant, cherry blossom eyes pierced the darkness in a sleepy haze as her dream faded from her memory. She looked around as she heard the panicked noise again, assured it wasn’t a part of her dream.
With the light of the moon, she could make out the tiny, blue ball that was her little sister across the room.
Luna was curled up and trembling, only her frightful, green eyes visible past the blue wisps of her tail she was hiding behind.
With a knowing smirk, Celestia rose from her bed and patiently trotted over to the miniscule filly. She laid down beside Luna and gently reached for her.
Luna gave a terrified squeak at the unknown touch before seeing it was someone she could trust. She quickly unfurled and rushed to Celestia’s side, preferring the more powerful company of her sister over the unwelcoming darkness.
Celestia gently stroked Luna’s short, flowing mane as the young princess slowly calmed down.

The soft prodding of a hoof on her side slowly pulled Twilight out of her slumber. She was awake and she was not happy about it. She waved off the offending pony and rolled over.
A soft and comfortably familiar voice whispered softly into her ear, "Come on, Twilight. Time to get up, it's your big day!"
Big day or not, Twilight's head was pounding, her body was aching and her eyes refused to open. She felt like an absolute train wreck. She rolled over and pulled her covers over her head. Maybe the intruder would go away if she ignored them.
"I thought you'd be excited! What's wrong with- Oh, I see..."
Whoever it was, they fell silent as the clopping of hooves reached Twilight's ears, fading off into another room. A couple minutes later, they returned, grabbed one of Twilight's forelegs and pulled her off of her vastly over-sized bed, causing her to land roughly on her hooves. Leaning against her waker, she felt herself being guided somewhere. Where didn't exactly matter, as long as she

Train En Route to Ponyville - 5:15 AM
It would take about four hours to get from Manehattan to Ponyville. I wanted to use the time to catch up on some much needed rest, but despite my best efforts sleep was just something my body refused. I spent an hour staring out the window before I decided to do something else instead.
It was about time I caught up on the newest issue of "The Adventures of Captain Baseball Bat Boy", an import graphic novel from the human federation and still my favorite graphic novel since foalhood. It mostly dealt with a hyperactive human kid that solved his problems by cracking heads with his baseball bat. In this month's issue, Captain Baseball Bat Boy was up against his most dangerous nemesis; the nefarious Maxwell's Demon and his army, The Freaking Demons from Outer Space. It was good stuff that made the last leg of the trip bearable. Still, it wasn't that long and I finished it in about a half an hour.

Greed now rules the spoils of war.
Queen has set her throne on the royal hall (the ruins of the realm)
I have walked through the dark
I have fought my way out of her prison.
I have witnessed the war
I have found my love wrapped in oblivion.
The eldritch swarm over our world,
My shining one, where have you gone?
Devourer's claws hold on your heart,
My shining love, where are you lost?
Broken harmony, its protectors fell
Imprisoned their kin, in repressed tears (the realm of peace)
From beasts he swore to shield his home,
My shining one, the guardian.
Wake from the queen's dormant veil,
Within your heart resides our hope.
In despair we need your gallant strength,
My shining one, reclaim your shield.

Nightmare Moon was a fool to let her go. She had Celestia right in her hoof, but she let her desire for revenge get the better of her. She just wants to toy with her, make her slog through every bit of misery she can conjure up. And it's because she knows Celestia can take it.
