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

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

It was a quiet night in Manehattan. Well, about as "quiet" as the city that never sleeps can get.
A black-coated pegasus in his early twenties was fast asleep on a cot in the corner of an apartment complex on the southern side of the city. The wooden floors were left barren, the carpets having been removed recently. A single dresser sat on the opposite side of the apartment, with a few empty picture frames atop it. A wooden desk was placed by a window on the south wall, also with almost nothing on it. Several cardboard boxes were littered throughout the room, taped shut.
The pegasus shifted back and forth, grumbling to himself as he tried to sleep. His green mane was in a ratted mess. The noise of the hustle and bustle of the city was dimmed by the windows, but not completely silenced. The pegasus rolled onto his hooves and stretched his back. He needed to replace the cot as well.
A knock came at the front door.
"Deeth?" A mare asked on the other side. "You up yet?"

First off, thank you for the cookies you sent over; they were delicious, as always.
Everything's been so quiet lately. It's almost as if there was no war going on. My friends (yes, you read that right) and I have been spending most of the time playing cards and singing songs from home. Once in a while, a shot might be heard at one point, but then silence follows.
It turns out that Sea Shell is also part of my unit. You remember Sea Shell, don't you? That colt that loves collecting shells down by the beach back home? Last night, he showed me part of his collection that he brought with him. They were beautiful, their design so simple yet so stunning.
There's this other pony in the unit; his name's Farce Tale. He doesn't really talk too much. Mainly, he just stays away from our group and writes in his little notebooks. Some of us tried to talk to him, but he always ignores us and continues his writing. Sometimes I wonder if he even has any friends.

"I'm sorry, but I can't let you in." A large colt blocked the door to a large hut.
"But I just want to see the alicorns!" A young mare pleaded.
The colt shook his head. "No. The sister are busy right now discussing the new castle. Nopony is to disturb them." the colt firmly stated.
She brushed her pure black hoof in the dirt before frowning and turning to leave. As she did the door opened and the head of a pure white alicorn came out. The alicorn looked down and saw the young mare turning to leave.
"Oh." She looked at the mare. "Hello pony, what are you here for?"
The mare turned around at the sound of Celestia' voice. "I wanted to speak to you and Luna regarding the current state of the tribes."
Celestia raised her eyebrows. Not many ponies wanted to talk about politics before, let alone someone so young. Celestia looked at the mare, they looked like somepony who had something important they wanted t

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.
The cultist nearly collap

Rarity is the element of generosity and none of the others compare to this. What is more noble to give without expecting anything in return? To freely give of yourself, your possessions, your time only to aid your friends and even strangers? This essay has already touched upon what Rarity did early on with Twilight, the sea-dragon, but lest we forget Rarity putting up with all her friend's outrageous demands over their perfect dresses. Her designs were simple yet elegant while her friends demanded outrageous changes that served to only ruin it all. Did Rarity snap back? Absolutely not! She, while begrudgingly, allowed the dresses to be ruined because that's what her friends wanted

Her garden surrounded her, the centerpiece of which, of course, was the frozen statue of Discord, Lord of Chaos and Disharmony. Besides that one sour note from her past, though, the garden really was pleasant. Rose bushes by the dozens, little birds and fluffy squirrels playing over the cobblestone paths, even a nice little hedge maze to wander around in.Swarm's War: The Equestrian Front, Chapter 43 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

The situation of the match was now getting dire. Three against four. The odds were against The Elements of Harmony. The P.W.O. were still very strong in the fight. Twilight Sparkle was getting worried for her team as it was only herself, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity left. "Okay, it's just the three of us left and they still have four," Twilight addressed seeing the challenge that faced them.
"Yeah, but Violet Velvet hasn't really done much in this match, meaning she's got fresh energy still in her. She's most likely saving it for you, Twilight," said Rainbow Dash.
"Probably," Twilight spoke back to her pegasus friend.

A certain pegasus flew back into Ponyville to find the entire town completely deserted. She flew all around, obviously checking the homes of her friends. Twilight’s Golden Oaks Library was all books and no ponies, every dessert in Sugarcube Corner was left untouched by Pinkie Pie, Sweet Apple Acres had no work of Applejack’s done, the Carousel Boutique had no Rarity for all those dresses, and Fluttershy’s cottage didn’t have a single living thing even living there.
Once Rainbow Dash checked everywhere else, she did find one caped figure standing in front of the town square. Next to the figure was a life sized statue of Rainbow Dash, but it was wearing a helmet, a red cape with a golden zipper, red strap on and a cloud making a yellow lightning bolt on it, and four golden gauntlets with tiny white wings for each hoof of the statue. The helmet and gauntlets were rainbow colored and had golden coverings to assure they were made of metal.

Applejack wasn't sure what Twilight was talking about, but she knew the unicorn needed her help, and as she took her place beside her newest friend, she knew she wasn't going to back down now. The little piles of stone at Nightmare Moon's hooves began to glow with a mysterious light, much to the dark mare's bewilderment. "Applejack, who reassured me when I was in doubt, represents the spirit of Honesty!" Twilight continued. Several stones began circling the orange earth pony, glowing with a strange orange light.
Twilight continued to highlight each pony's strengths, from Fluttershy's kindness to Rainbow Dash's loyalty. Another orb appeared in the air above her and transformed into a magnificent crown. Together, the six ponies unleashed the magic of the Elements of Harmony, stripping Nightmare Moon of her dark powers once and for all.
The effort took a lot out of them, but it didn't take them long to recover. "Gee, Twilight,"

Darkened woods, don't wander away
Hold tight, hope for best
Treacherous pass over the cliffs
Watch your step to survive
In the shades of woods everfree
Danger lies by any tree
Roar of beast, manticore's rage
Terrible fate to be torn as its prey
Strength nor courage won't shield from its jaws
Tame the monster by the kindness of shy
Before their path a seething river
Mad in the woe of loss.
To pass the rapids somepony must dry
The stream serpent's tears
Grins in dark, grins of the ghouls
They were surrounded by phantom woods
"Win the fear by a cheerful laugh
Don't let horror get hold of your heart."
Time for final temptation
Offer of might and fame
"It's either us or them."
"Give up them, I'd suggest."
"My soul is not for trade
at the price of my friends."

Not what she needed.
Twilight had assured Applejack that what she needed was hidden beneath that unassuming facade, and if any pony would know it was Princess Twilight Sparkle - or Rarity, she supposed, but she couldn't ask her.
Not about this.

Three days and dozens of scrapes and bruises later, she finally hit what she'd been looking for - a spark of rich red under the layers of lichen-laced brown and gray. Applejack smiled wearily, noting the perfection of the color, and gave a small sigh of pleasure.
