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.2 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

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

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

Spike awoke from his slumber, stretching his arms high into the air and pushing himself up from his small bed. As he stood up, his mouth extended into a large yawn and his legs automatically directed him to the door to the main floor of the library. It had been the same routine for years, ever since Twilight and he had moved into Ponyville. However, as Spike pushed open the door, he noticed something odd; the light in the library had been turned on.
Usually, the whole library would be drenched in darkness as he would be the first one to wake. Spike turned his head to the clock that hung in his room. '5:28 AM'. Now Spike was very curious as to who would be in the library at this time of day as he wasn't late for his daily routine either! Descending down the steps to the second floor of the library, his eyes slowly caught a glimpse of Twilight, who had her chin resting lazily on the circular table and her mouth lowered into a frown.
"Twilight? What're you doing up so early?" Spike asked.

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

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.

Manehattan - 9:30 PM
Scumbag: the most prolific term in my vocabulary is the word scumbag, and for good reason; almost everyone I meet in the streets nowadays is a scumbag.
What constitutes a scumbag? The signs are too long to list, but I don't need to; I know a scumbag when I see one, and the unicorn running away from me at this very moment constituted a grade-A example of what a real scumbag is.
The filthy piece of scum ran - flying almost - as I pursued him, pistol levitating near my head in a soft, dark colored glow. He sure ran fast for someone who had just had a bullet pierce his hind leg; but I had grown accustomed to this sight, as it had played out in the same form for more times that I dared count.
His ragged red robes concealed just how dangerous this piece of equine filth was, and this one was as vile as you could get: a foal-raping, mass-murdering cannibal cultist who was mere seconds away from having his brains become part of the pavement.

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

It all happened so fast.
She just... dropped. Fainted, and collapsed. I grabbed her, cried for help... eventually somepony heard me and came, then we were taken to the Hospital.
Terror wracked my body, I felt sick, overcome with fear. I didn’t know what would happen to her; I just didn’t know, and I was scared. I felt like throwing up, my stomach in tight knots, refusing to loosen.
Suddenly, the doors to the front of the hospital had flown open loudly, startling me, and in came the one pony I admired more than anyone.
Word travels fast in small towns like Ponyville; Rainbow Dash travels even faster. She came up to me, a knowing look in her eyes, and just sat next to me. She seemed worried, though I’m sure most of the worry was for me, not the pony I was scared for. Dash put her hoof on my shoulder, I looked up. She just stared at me and whispered,
“It’ll be okay.”
I wasn’t so sure I could believe Dash, but I nodded anyway a

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.
It was a guilty pleasure, and one that at least kept my h

I don't need the world when I have you. If you do get me something, I'd much rather have something that you made yourself. I don't care how cheesy it is, it's the thought that counts and you can be sure I'll keep it safe.

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.

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.

As Spike continued to play with the knots, he eventually found one that worked. "Finally," he said to himself.
Not wanting to waste any more time than he already had, Spike turned and ran out of the bedroom. Instantly he looked down the steps to see Twilight looking up at him with a surprised expression on her face. She was wearing a red dress, a pearl necklace, and her mane was curled.
Spike's eyes widened as he looked at his lavender friend. "Wow," they both said quietly.

Slowly the lavender unicorn began to trot towards the door, with the same depressed look on her face. As she walked, her sad eyes never left the ground. "I'm sorry Spike," she whispered.
