Mending a Broken Rainbow- Chapter Eight
Rainbolt sat alone in her room at the Wonderbolt Stadium, as she had grown accustomed to over the last several days. She was there, at the very center of her dreams, so why... why had she spent the last several hours laying in her bed, with a photograph laid out before her. A photograph of a perky orange earth pony, showing off a pearly smile.
"Rainbolt?" the door to the star's room creaked loudly, allowing a bright stream of light to pierce the lair's darkness. "Rainbolt, can I come in?"
Spitfire didn't hesitate to push her way through the doorway, and flip on the closest light switch, forcing Rainbolt to cover her eyes as they adjusted. The dark yellow pegasus approached the bed cautiously.
"What's up with you lately?" Spitfire continued forward. "I've hardly seen you outside practice. Are you doing alright?"
"I... I don't know," Rainbolt, eyes adjusted, pulled back her hooves to reveal a set of teary eyes. "I'm confused."

The glow of a summer evening bloomed before Fluttershy's eyes as her bird choir struck up an effortless melody and the sweet sigh of a breeze drifted across the highest hill of Sweet Apple Acres. Fluttershy inhaled the scent of ripened apples that danced on the wind and let her jade eyes soak in the twilit scene before she turned them to the crimson stallion who sat beside her. She felt her cheeks flush as his apple green eyes gazed into hers; in them she could see all of her own contentment and sincerity. She peered deeper and also saw the uncertainty and fears which for so long had kept them from one another, and though these trepidations remained in him just as they did in her own heart, they were quelled by a trust that had been built over two years of shared joys and tears. At times, she still felt the earth drop from beneath her hooves when she allowed herself to think about how much she truly cared for him and how scary it was to give so much of her heart to somepony else. She n

"Consarnit," Macintosh muttered to himself, trying for the fifth time to fashion the green silk tie around his collar. Though he loved being an earth pony and the special bond he had with plants, there were some moments when he thought he might not mind being a unicorn. A low chuckle came from behind him.
"Need a hoof?" Applejack asked, quickly forming a neat knot with all the skill of a practiced lasso champion and tucking the tie into his brown jacket. "Can't have ya runnin' 'round Canterlot lookin' like a right mess, can we now?"
"Nnope," Big Mac replied, flattening his orange mane. He checked for what must have been the second time in the last minute to make sure the small velvet box was still securely in his left pocket. AJ eyed his movement warily before saying,

It was uncommonly warm for a spring morning at Sweet Apple Acres, but by no means unpleasant. Beams of sunlight colored the inside of Big Macintosh's eyelids tangerine, and the balmy air cradled the crimson stallion like his favorite quilt; in fact, he slowly realized, it was his favorite quilt. He nestled further under the blankets, relishing in their embrace. But it wasn't just his quilt holding him. Without opening his eyes he traced two slender hooves which had wrapped themselves securely around his middle, and to his delight and surprise found that there was a whole pony attached to them. His hooves ran over a velvety coat and through the long strands of a silky mane. Sweet breath tickled the back of his neck, the steady ebb and flow of air matching the slow but powerful tattoo of his own heartbeat.
'Ah could get used ta this,' the work stallion thought, or perhaps he said it aloud, for Fluttershy sighed behind him, seemingly in agreement. Big Macintosh permitted himself a goofy g

Oh, but I forgot. You can't hear me, can you? Of course not. A statue can't very well speak now, can it? I'm just rambling to myself, in my mind, as always. What fun. But I'll tell you what; I'm just gonna go ahead and pretend you can hear me. Much less mundane that way, yes?

Luna ruined it all. She told her mother about our location out of her before she could leave. Knowing that hurt, too. I actually trusted her.
So we were unceremoniously awoken, as the dawn finally arrived, by that Alicorn Queen. And she proceeded to kill me.
"Celestia Harmonia! Get up immediately!" was our alarm. We scrambled to our feet, hardly daring to believe our ears.

Reign of Darkness: Written Sneak PeakThroughout her body, all she could feel and comprehend at that moment was pain. Her body ached immensely, while each limb and appendage throbbed in a agonizing discomfort far greater than a pulled muscle. The aches only served to drain her all the more physically, while her magic reserves had already been at an all low. For awhile, she was only able to perceive white in her vision, due to the splitting agony that also emitted within her head. Though, the true source of pain was not from a headache, but the hot and searing sensation itself came from the fact that more than half of her horn was missing. Her horn appeared to have been shattered upon impact, more than likely through the surge and force of powerful magic. The remains were cracked, nearly stretching down to where her once long and beautiful pristine horn attached to her head. For some time, Celestia knew all there was to pain, and even had her seldom chances to feel how such pain and grief was like. However, it took until faReign of Darkness: Written Sneak Peak3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I probably won't even send this letter. I can't explain why I'm writing it, but I have to or I feel like I'll implode. I can't even really wrap my head around what it is that I'm writing to you about. I mean, everyone thought she was so happy. Sure, she was quiet but no one thought anything of it. I just don't understand.
She was my best friend. She was my everything, really. It seems impossible that she really did it. I could have helped her, I could have saved her. I could have done something. Some friend I was I didn't even know she was hurting. She was my best friend. Some pony I am to not know my best friend was thinking about killing herself.
I can't get the image out of my mind. She was so timid, so sweet and kind and loving to everything. My scream could have raised the dead when I walked into her house the day she was late to our weekly spa appointment and saw her lying there.

He couldn't really see much in the haze of smoke, and the typical dream impairments (such as being half blind), but he could see enough to know his body was moving. He could also tell that behind the choking smoke, it was really daylight despite the darkness. Birds chirped as the fire continued to rage.
He didn't see his own feet and knew they weren't the ones moving. As he gazed down with wide eyes he saw a tiny, kitten paw; his own, golden and furry. He had an eagle chick's talon and knew immediately that he was a child again. Wide, infant eyes stared down at a much larger paw. It was matted with dirt and dried flecks of blood, but Discord could still tell it was white with gorgeous patterns. A snow leopard's paw.

Twilight Sparkle watched as, for the umpteenth time, Rainbow Dash scribbled something out on her infernal notepad. She sighed and turned her attention back to her book, Starswirl the Bearded: Unappreciated Greatness, but found that she was still unable to block out the constant scratching of her friend's quill.

With mild indignation, the unicorn remembered the first day Rainbow had shown up to the library with her notepad in hoof saying something about needing to vent.

At first, Twilight had been excited, perhaps even a little impressed to see her athletic friend taking such a sudden interest in the a

The memories of an evil draconequus intent on shaking the land to its very core now seemed so far to Fluttershy as she shifted through a photo album she had recently put together over the past few months. In almost every photo, Discord was trying to ruin the moment in some way.Broken Spirit - Final Chapter3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
She remembered Twilight's birthday mere weeks ago, where the draconequus had dangled a rubber spider over Rarity's head, and caused her to scream and flail into the buffet table. She looked at photos of Nightmare Night; what was probably one of the best nights for Discord since he had resided in Ponyville. The draconequus had dressed up as a giant candy monster, completed with candy corn fangs. She gazed down at a picture of him and Luna eagerly scaring the fillies while in their disguises. Lastly, with a warm heart, she grazed a hoof over a photo of the draconequus dog piling the alicorns playfully.

The sky was clear, and she decided to show off and perform the Sonic Rainboom so all of Ponyville would see. She narrowed her eyes, bent her legs, and sped up, the wind shooting by her. She sped by the schoolyard. To the children's horror, she crashed into Little Timmy, that weird purple unicorn from outer space. As he started sobbing, the young ponies started coming towards them. Tears welled up in Rainbow Dash's eyes. She had skinned her leg! As three teachers approached her menacingly, Rainbow blinked.

"Excuse me? We've only been togwell, re-been together for three months now!" Discord exclaimed, "And you've already got us picking out fancy china?"
Clearly he and Celestia were well on the road for marriage, as they were supposed to be eons ago. Even though it was custom for the stallion to ask the mare, if Celestia was the one to pop the question he'd say yes in a heartbeat. Having the alicorn was something he had wanted since he was a child, and something his own stupidity had deprived them of long ago.
"Wife or not, she will not be exempted from any of my ploys at all! None whatsoever! She'll be as open as the rest of them all. Even the mare I love isn't going to get special treatment."
Of course, Celestia was used to his pranks anyway, as was Luna. Well, n

Things that would destroy the mind of anyone who dared to listen in on the trio. But that's completely irrelevant to this fic, as we will move onto our current topic: The Gamma Phase.

Discord and Celestia were walking toward a popular theatre which was currently vacated (read 'currently vacated' as 'recently attacked by Discord, who teleported every viewer to Ponyville'). They had been making small talk when suddenly, out of the blue, plot development occurred.
"What was that?" Celestia questioned, having just heard a barely audible rustling noise.
"What was what?" Discord asked, apparently having not heard anything.
" It must have been my imagination " Celestia slowly said, looking carefully at a bush.
"Whatever, let's keep going" she sighed, and the two continued on their way.

If Celestia remembered correctly, and she knew she did despite of her years, he hadn't been expecting it when it happened. He'd been in the middle of a passionate gloating session, espousing his victory and no doubt believing Celestia and Luna to be cowering before him that the weak little ponies he thought they were. By the time the Elements of Harmony had charged their attack, it was too late for him, and Discord was frozen in time with that look of smug satisfaction.MLP:FIM- Voices3 years ago in Romance More Like This

I woke up from my sleep. It was the same dream again. Why was it torturing me with questions?! From who was the beautiful soft voice? From who where the annoying voices? What was the buzzing? Did it hurt? Where did it all happened? I knew it was not a dream. It was real. I was lost when I first saw the world where the others lived in. It was so big. So I walked, wondering where this world would bring me. Not knowing that I wanted to go back to that place. It could be anywhere. I walked for a long time and eventually I was flying. I didn't had to put much effort in it. I wouldn't be tired. That was one worry to forget. But now I couldn't find my way back. Should I go back? It would only bring more worries and questions and I didn't want that.
The flying was very helpful. I could travel faster and go higher. It was more like hovering in the air but either way, it let me feel free. I did have to flap my wings sometimes. Even these were different. Everything about me was different now I co
