Chapter one: Applebucking
An Appledash fic inspired by the short story "Of horseshoes, apples, and feathers"
It was a glorious day in Ponyville, the smell of autumn indicated the changing of seasons as summer came to a close. On a lonely high cloud in the sky over Equestria, a cyan-coated pegasus who had an distinctive rainbow mane was sleeping peacefully. Her name was Rainbow Dash and she was in the middle of her daily afternoon nap after a day previously of napping and practicing her tricks for the Wonderbolts. It was Sunday and Dash's day off, but she still had work to do for somepony else.
"Apple bucking with Applejack!" Rainbow Dash screamed as the thought came to her head, waking her up. "Oh no, oh no I'm late!" Rainbow panicked as she scrambled to get up off her cloud. "I'm late, I'm late, I'm late" she told herself as she flew off towards Sweet Apple Acres.

Rainbows Can Be Lonely Too
By: DolphinBuster starring: Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy
I held in a growl watching Fluttershy panic in fear as she tried another loop. That pegasus is such a scaredy pony. It had been just about the same thing for the past hour or so. I'd demonstrate the trick Fluttershy would try, she'd panic, fall down, and whimper how sorry she was for failing. She's a pony that you can't seem to stay mad at, but she could be really aggravating at times, though.
Seriously though, I shouldn't be complaining. I was the one that had taken a day off weather duty to spend some time with Fluttershy and teach her a trick or two. But all she seemed to learn so far was a half loop, and how to fall without breaking anything.
Fluttershy sat on the ground, shaking her mane to cover her face. She was obviously embarrassed.
"Its okay, Fluttershy. You put in a great effort. It just takes practice." I had to hold back a choke at grea

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

Enjoyin' the weather, that sorta thing. Then suddenly I hear this quiet sound, just barely loud enough for my ears to pick up. Sounded kinda like one of them violin things but deeper. At the time I thought it was a kinda neat sound - might make for a good sample to use in my next mix. Something new. Something original. Something to make the next crowd's heads turn. So I go follow it, right? And the sound picks up further as I sea
Derpy's ProtectorDerpy's Protector2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The delicious aroma of a pot of fresh soup floated through the quaint Ponyville home, a grey pegasus stirring it as it sat upon the stove. Her wings occasionally flapped, sending the warmth and smell through the area to the point where she was positive that her neighbors were going to beg for some at any moment.
A smile spread across her face as she heard the click of her front door and the sigh of her young filly.
"Hello, muffin," she happily chirped, hearing Dinky's saddlebags hit the floor. "How was your day at school?"
Waiting for her response, Derpy listened as her daughter's hooves clinked across the kitchen floor, making their way to the living room, which was soon followed by the sound of the young pony plopping herself down on the couch.
Sensing the distress in her daughter's actions, she abandoned her stirring and trotted into the living room, looking at her grey filly with concern. She watched as the pony intentionally avoided her gaze.

A Sight for Really Sore EyesSweet Apple Acres was cool this time of year and as usual Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash were in a pranking mood. Normally, they would aim for Applejack, but this time they were targeting her older brother Big Macintosh. They had set a surprise for him on a path they knew he would take eventually. The prank was that once he hit a tripwire they had set up a pulled back branch would be released and hit him in the chest. For Pinkie and Rainbow it was set at face level, but Big Mac was taller not to mention that his yoke would protect him so he was not in danger. They only wanted to surprise or scare the quiet stallion. What happened was still a surprise but was not fun.A Sight for Really Sore Eyes4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The main entrance to Ponyville was modest. That’s how Kydose would describe it. He stood just outside the town, looking over the welcome sign with a hint of curiosity. It wasn’t all that special, merely saying “Welcome to Ponyville!” in cursive writing. The font itself looked like something you would find outside of Canterlot, yet here it was, plastered to a wooden sign and very obviously spray-painted gold. It’s almost gaudy, the stallion thought, as the words reflected in his sea-green eyes.
He was about to continue his walk into town when something caught his eye. Looking back, he saw a piece of wood sticking out from behind the sign. His curiosity piqued, so he approached the welcome sign and stuck his hoof behind it, fishing for whatever was tucked behind. After a moment he caught hold of something and dragged it out, revealing what looked to be the old welcome sign.
This one was much smaller. The wording was the same, but the writing was simpl

A white unicorn in royal robes and sparkling crown stood atop a snow-spotted peak. The blizzard responsible for it had been thwarted a full week prior--and hopefully, forever--but from her vantage point, its effects could still easily be seen across the horizon.
In its half-melted state, the snow highlighted the flora of the land below, causing several colors of the rainbow to shine under the moonlight.
Princess Platinum smiled. They almost hadn't done it. Heaven knew she hadn't contributed all that much to their cause.
At that moment, however, she at last heard the hoofsteps of one who had.
"Ahh, Clover the Clever," Platinum greeted the brown-robed violet unicorn who had just traversed the peak's leading trail. "Thank you for showing. I... did not wish to inconvenience you whilst you were napping."
Clover nodded with a light, airy smile. "I appreciate it. Still, I came as soon as I read your note. Is anything the matter?"

As the great spires of Canterlot came into view, the last rays of sun dipped below the horizon and shrouded Equestria in night. Stars twinkled in the sky above, and lights from the brightly lit castle glowed just a short distance away.
Right on time, Kydose thought, galloping along the stone road towards the structure. As he neared it, he slowed to a trot and took in his surroundings. There were numerous carriages and ponies already in the area, and everypony was dressed for the occasion. The suits had not a wrinkle and the dresses were lavish and flowing. Looking down at his own suit, Kydose began to feel inadequate.
He shook his head, clearing his mind of any demoralizing thoughts. He hadn’t come this far just to beat himself up over nothing. Taking in a breath of mountain air, Kydose gathered his courage and began walking forwards, trying to blend in with the crowd. All the while, his eyes darted around nervously as he looked for guards.

Kydose’s thoughts were lost in a sea of pearly white and violet, with an occasional splash of royal blue. The mysterious mare consumed his vision, and all he could think about was how he was about to meet her, what she would sound like, the first things he’d say to her. So enamored was he with her visage that he lost track of the passing seconds, which turned to minutes.
Once he realized what was happening, Kydose quickly shook his head, breaking himself out of the spell she had put him under. However, the damage was already done. To his terror, when his eyes darted back in the direction the white mare stood, she was gone.
Oh no! Oh no, oh no, oh no! Kydose thought, his heart racing. He glanced around, hoping that she had maybe just stepped to the side somewhere, but it was hopeless. She was nowhere to be seen. Kydose’s heart sank as all the hopes and aspirations he had built up slowly crumbled to pieces. How could you be so stupid!? he thought, biting h

Up in the tallest tower in the city, Twilight found herself trapped within the confines of a black-crystal prison, the gems risen up from the ground, blocking any means of escape for the lavender unicorn. Just outside, Spike started to feel nervous. His eyes darted from side to side, his feet moved up and down like two, small pistons.

In December, 2010, a piece published on the website of Ms. Magazine declared the cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to be "homophobic, racist and smart-shaming." For a great number of readers, this will have come as a surprise: our main heroine is a librarian, sexuality is never addressed, the "races" of My Little Pony are not represented by color as the article asserts and so on. If we pierce the veil of ignorance which appears to surround this phenomenon, what message do we actually find? What lessons are our children or slightly-odd late teens/university age friends and family absorbing? It is a sign of the times that the answer, quite ironically, is Marxism. What follows is a much shortened and updated version of an earlier paper; for those familiar with the original, the discussion of capital and currency has been uncere

Reasons why Fluttershy is Best PonyKindness is often seen as something admired, something that everyone should strive to have, but the world often takes that ideal and cuts it down to size with realism. Being kind all the time only allows for easier exploitation by those that would do it anyhow. Strength is something that can manifest itself in a great deal many ways; whether it is in raw muscle strength, intellectual fortitude, cardio endurance or inner resolve to see the end of things no matter how grim they may be. Benching a hefty amount is admirable and running a marathon is quite the feat, but it's always the quiet ones, the unassuming ones, that amaze the most with their strength and Fluttershy is absolutely no different in that regard.Reasons why Fluttershy is Best Pony3 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This

I shivered as a cold gust of wind swept over me, pulling me out of my slumber. I blinked my eyes a few times and let out a quiet yawn. I was still tired but, I was really comfortable. Fluttershy and I were still cuddled up with each other, but she was still sleeping. I wiped my eyes with my free hoof and took a look over to Fluttershy to make sure she was alright.
Fluttershy seemed fine. She felt a little cold but, she was fine. I must've shielded her from the wind from the night. Thank, Celestia for that. I would hate for Fluttershy to get sick and not only because of that, but because it would make the trip back home more a pain as its already going to be. My leg was still feeling soar and so was the rest of my body. That tree really took its toll on me, and Fluttershy too.

"What! We're going to miss the Wonderbolts!" Rainbow Dash yelled in panic shooting up out of her bed and falling onto the floor. Her heart was beating as fast as it ever had been. She looked up with panic in her eyes. "Are we late?" Dash asked, her voice rising in pitch slightly in the middle of the question.
"No, we have plenty of time before we have to get going, it was just a trick to get you out of bed." Fluttershy responded, her voice high as she shook silently.

#49) I had a phase that lasted a few months in which I "enjoyed" the Rule 34 aspect of the brony fandom, mostly just clopping at night a few times a week and only to the R34. I started to grow out of this phase about a month or two back, and now I am completely grown out of it. The R34 no longer interests me and I've stopped clopping to it. I feel mostly relieved because of this shift, but when I look back on my clopping phase, I am dragged down by guilt and sadness and can't help feeling that I am a horrible, perverted person and the bane of the fandom.
Am I a horrible person for having liked the R34 and having been a clopper? This fandom means a lot to me and I don't want to think I'm one of its "bad apples".
