Soul Survivor chapter 2
I've been trying to find out how I got to Equestria and why I woke up in a hospital in Canterlot. My progress however is continually being halted. When I was discharged, I was attacked by a robed pony from a gang called the Black Daggers. I managed to kill their leader, but the others slipped away from me. I hoped that the captain of the guard, Loyal Crescent, could help me but he just exploited me to run a few errands for him. I wish only to find a way to return to my wife and daughter. Hopefully Mrs Pie, who originally brought me to the hospital, can be of some help. There is just one thing I have to take care of first before visiting her at the castle.

"All right, everypony, take your places," Celestia said with a hurried tone and observed as her orders were followed. Somepony was missing so she bowed her head down next to Spike and whispered. "Where's Twilight?"
"Uhm..." Spike said and scratched his head. "I don't know. She said she'd be here."
"Well congratulations then, Spike. You just got promoted to ring bearer."
A red felt pillow hovered into his arms. Celestia rose again and looked out at the congregation. Shining Armour and Luna both stood before her. Only a few other ponies sat on the benches. It was the rehearsal and only the mane six, the bridesmaids and a few others were gathered. Celestia cleared her throat and was about to begin the faux ceremony when the doors flew open. Twilight ran up the aisle between the seats with a confident smile on her lips.
"Wait! I have something to say!" she shouted. Her friends covered their heads in

It is said that earth pony mares long ago had a way of making their spurned love fall for them by mixing their food or drink with a special ingredient. The practice was forbidden by Celestia during her rule and ponydom eventually forgot about it from disuse. However, could there have been another reason for the ban?

The Apple family were gathered around a table in their kitchen. They nervously watched as Granny Smith crunched numbers on her calculator. A strip of paper escaped it and rolled across the length of the table between jars of zap apple jam. Applejack had Apple Bloom in a tight embrace, her eyes wide with fear and her little sister worriedly looking up at the table. Big Mac stood on the other side of Granny Smith; his calm exterior betrayed the furore raging inside him.
The only one unfazed was Granny Smith herself, fervently pressing buttons and yanking on levers.

2013, Royal Equestrian Timeline
Apple Bloom sat in the tree house and leaned out of the window, gazing into the Equestrian night. She had just adjourned yet another unsuccessful meeting with her two fellow blank flanks, and another day had gone by without any cutiemarks. The Cutiemark Crusaders could celebrate almost a year of existence, yet poor Apple Bloom could only sigh at her misery. All she wanted in life was to find her special talent, but all three of them had tried everything and they were steadily running out of ideas; the other ponies in Ponyville also steadily running out of patience with them.
There was only one thing that she hadn't tried yet by now, and she had tried everything from weird potions to powerful spells. She pressed her hoofs together and shut her eyes in concentration for at just that moment, Apple Bloom had seen a shooting star, said to be Luna's way of granting the wish of the hopeful.

It was filly Twilight’s first time sleeping away from home and she was rolling around on the large bed and flailing her limbs, too nervous to properly settle down. Celestia had always been kind but also terribly busy with duties. Though having a room available to her, Twilight had been allowed to sleep in the Princess’ chamber on her first night. Celestia returned shortly after to check up on Twilight and found her new student with nose buried in a large book. It was with a stab of melancholy that she saw what Twilight was reading.
“Twilight dear, where did you find that book?” Celestia laid down next to Twilight and wrapped her wing around her.

Spike sat on the steps outside the library the next day, head in his hands and brow furrowed to a frown. The others had caught only snippets of what had happened after the party and they came curious to him with their questions. The first to arrive on the scene was Rainbow Dash. Before she could vent what she had on mind, Applejack showed up as well.
“Is she... all right?” Dash asked, unsure what to say. She landed in front of Spike, but looked away from the library.
“I think so, but she doesn’t want to talk with anyone,” Spike said without looking up.
“What in tarnation happened yesterday?!” Applejack asked shocked and stamped the ground impatiently.
“I don’t know,” Spike said with a shrug and looked up at them. “I tried writing Celestia, but I’m not sure I understand her reply.”

Twilight took another glance around the library's living room and then her eyes moved towards the stairs leading up. Her ears perked up, trying to catch any hint of sounds from upstairs. After a moment, she relaxed as she didn't hear anything.
She had planned this night for many weeks and now she was alone, finally she could enjoy it! She quickly levitated her checklist over so she could check that everything was in order. "Let's see here..." Twilight mumbled, her quill levitating right next to her. "Warm fireplace..." Twilight glanced at her fireplace which was radiating quite warningly. "Check."
Twilight then threw a couple blocks of wood into the fire, so the temperature wouldn't drop for a while. And now the living room was bit warmer. "Soft and comfy mattress..." Twilight moved her hoof on the mattress. "Check." she said with a smile.
After Mare-day Gras...The light from Celestia's noontime sun brightly shone into Twilight's sleeping face, causing the unicorn to cover her face with a foreleg. "Mmmph, 5 more minutes... I was up studying, ma..." Twilight's voice, still drowsy, didn't want to give in to the warm sun ray's urging her awake.After Mare-day Gras...4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
But, try as she might, the warmth from the sun gently urged her from her slumber. Giving a sigh, the unicorn slowly opens her first her left eye... Then her right eye creeps open as she stumbles out of her sleeping nook. Still half-asleep, Twilight trips down the steps and into the kitchen. "Mmmm, need tea... Wha-what happened last night...?" The last thing she remembered as she trotted drowzily into the kitchen, was being at the local Mare-day Gras party Pinkie Pie threw last night...

Rarity grabbed Applejack and hustled her through the archway that led to the eastern battlements.
"Hey, yer hurtin' me!" the earth pony yelped.
"Oh, do come on, Applejack," said Rarity, pulling her along. "Our first foray has failed. We need to come up with another plan to get Twilight away from Princess Celestia so that she can spend some time with Rainbow. The battlements that Princess Luna mentioned are the perfect venue for some planning."
"Do we really need ta get involved?" replied Applejack. "Can't we just relax an' let love find its own way?"
"Love? Find its own way?" Rarity snorted. "Have you forgotten what dear Twilight is like?

“Give in to your anger, Twilight Sparkle. Let all your hatred and pain flow through you.” Twilight looked up into the darkness but saw only her own twisted, warped reflection staring back at her. Her massive wings covered all that she could see, her crooked horn seethed with venom and her cloven hooves shook the ground. Twilight wanted to flee but she didn’t even have her horn anymore. “You are weak. How will you ever protect anypony? Give in to your anger. Curse me, Twilight Sparkle. Hate me.”

Love Is In Bloom
Princess Luna stared at the newly married couple who were dancing in the middle of the dance floor, surrounded by other couples swaying to the music. Luna had never felt happier, as this was her first wedding in over a thousand years. For a moment, she felt a pang of guilt, that she might have missed many weddings like this.
But then again, last time she had attended any royal weddings, they weren't this lively. Well, last time they didn't have Pinkie Pie. Last time, she was also a bit uptight. And a bit more tempered. But that was in the past. She felt quite proud that this party was being held, right under her night sky. It gave her the hope that she needed. The hope that everypony actually enjoyed her night!

"It's good to see that you decided to come, love." Twilight heard as she entered the balcony. She couldn't help but smile at the sight of Princess Luna standing before her, also smiling at her. But there was also a glint in Princess's eye's that told her that there was something else going on.
"Of course I would come." Twilight replied as she closed the door. "I mean it's not really hard when you are invited to your own balcony" Twilight joked. She then started laughing, which quickly had Luna joining her.
"Yes." Luna then said, letting out a last small chuckle.
"But in all seriousness, what did you want to show me Luna?" Twilight asked as she walked to her Princess.
"Why don't we lay down first?" Luna suggested once Twilight was at her side.
"So..." Twilight started as she laid next to Luna.

"Rainbow?" Applejack said, frowning in disbelief. "Rainbow Dash? Really?"
Rarity nodded. "Oh darling, it suddenly occurred to me while I was chatting with Twilight over tea this morning. She said she felt as if she was missing something, and I suggest that it was somepony she was missing, rather. And when I suggested it was young Spike, she laughed. But then I remembered that Rainbow was also out of town. As you know, she's in Canterlot at the moment helping the Wonderbolts with the Spring Moon Festival performance that rather striking Spitfire has a marvellous aerial spectacle in store for the Princess Luna, I hear."
"Ah dunno, Rarity," said Applejack. "Ah mean, Twi and Rainbow? What do those two even have in common?"

Luna looked out at the dark lands of Equestria. She leaned against the stone railing that surrounded the balcony of her room, in the second highest tower of Canterlot Castle, the first belonging to her sister. She soon found her eyes landing on the small town of Ponyville, watching as lights went out, one after another, as the inhabitants retired to bed. She let out a long sigh, her eyes dropping to stare at her hands, which were folded and resting on the carefully carved balcony border. Yes, she knew not many people stayed up to enjoy her beautiful nights, but it pained her to see the loneliness that turned her into the dreaded Nightmare Moon, stare at her in the face again.
"Problem, sister?" Luna nearly jumped out of her skin as she felt a hand suddenly land on her shoulder, though she turned her head to find Celestia's smiling face beside her. "You looked like something was troubling you is something wrong?"
Luna shook her head. "Oh, no, of course not. Everything

Moments later, there was a loud whoosh as a multi-coloured streak flew overhead and Rainbow Dash came in to land on the cloud not far away from the assembled group and quickly trotted up to them.
"It's so awesome that you guys could all come!" she said, grinning at her friends. Then she bowed to Celestia and Luna, saying "Spitfire sends her apologies, Your Highnesses - she's still not happy with some of the choreography and she wants to fit in as much rehearsal as possible before tonight."
Celestia smiled. "It sounds as if you have a wonderful show prepared for us tonight."
Rainbow nodded enthusiastically, but then frowned suddenly. "I just hope everything goes according to plan " and nopony screws anything up! A vision of a certain blonde-maned Pegasus pony with quizzical eyes appeared before her and she resisted groaning out loud.

"Just a little out-of-the-way place I like to visit now and then, when the responsibilities of being Princess of Equestria get a bit too much," explained Celestia. "I think it should be especially quiet tonight with everypony out in the streets enjoying the festival. Oh, and here we are!"
The alley opened out into a tiny square with a number of little shops opening off of it. There was a tack-repair shop, with newly-worked bridles hanging near the door to dry; an apothecary, with its tell-tale sign of a winged-staff and the thick scent of medicines and ointments which Twilight could smell from where they were standing; and a charming little...
"Oh, a bookshop!" cried Twilight in delight. Towers of leather-bound books were piled up next to the door, and a ziggurat of yellowed vellum-scrolls as well. Oh,

It was once again cider season for Ponyville. There was a lot of excitement for the first day of cider the next day. Applejack headed into the library to see how her friend Twilight was doing. "Howdy Twilight!"
Twilight looked over with a causal smile looking up from a book that she was reading. "Hey Applejack, looking forward to cider season starting tomorrow?" She knew it was a huge thing that gave the Apples their income as well as the Zap Apple Jam.
"Of course, but we're puttin' a stop to Pinkie's hoggin', there's a five glasses per day per costumer limit now."

"'Observe'?" repeated Applejack, her eyes narrowing. "Don'cha mean 'spy'?"

Applejack felt her heart sink at the words 'all our hard work'. Rarity had got so swept up in the whole Rainbow-Twilight thing, she wasn't making a lick o' sense anymore!
"Over there!" said Rarity. She'd spotted some steps not far away that led up to a small garden around the base of a tower. It was little more than a single hawthorn-tree surrounded by low jasminum bushes, sprinkled with white flowers. They were giving off a delightful perfume with the advent of the evening, and the sweet scent wafted thickly on the breeze that was sweeping down from the mountain above them. The unicorn found a larger bush and stepped

Ditzy turned, and knew straightaway that the mare was right. The moon had grown huge, far bigger than usual, even during the spring moon festival, and instead of its stately ascent along the arch of the sky, it was headed on a near-horizontal path straight for the castle.
With both forelegs Ditzy waved the fliers to a halt, and as a group they hung bobbing against the night sky. The pegasi looked across at the looming white orb and began to mutter.
"Is it supposed to be moving so fast?" said one.
"It's not slowing down," whispered another.
"It's out of control!" cried a third.
"And it's - it's headed right for us!"
The team began to devolve into a confused mob, muttering and glancing at the moon and each other until one, a pegasus stallion with a yellow coat and a violet mane, suddenly split off from the rest of the group.

"It is looking like a beautiful, sunny weekend for all of you fine folks heading out to the mountains this weekend!" the voice from the radio buzzed loudly throughout the small town home. "A wonderful chance to strap on those skis and explore the beautiful mountain sides."
A pearly smile spread across the listeners thin face, as she rummaged through her carefully packed bag; a set of delicate fingers checking off the final items from the list. The room filled with music as the radio began playing the newest hit tunes, and Rainbow Dash bobbed her head to the heavy beat. A quick glance to the left revealed that it was almost time to go.
"Awe, yeah!" Rainbow Dash zipped up the backpack sized parcel and tossed it to the front door. "This weekend is going to be perfect! I can't believe I'm spending the whole weekend with the gang in the mountains, and it was so nice of Applejack's family to let us use their cabin."

Later that day Rarity, Applejack, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, dressed in the new gowns that Rarity had designed especially for the Spring Moon Festival, were waiting in the Town Square in the clear and mild spring air for Twilight to arrive with their transportation.
"I thought we were going by air balloon," said Pinkie Pie with some disappointment. The truth was, she loved flying in it every opportunity she could get.
"Now darling," said Rarity indulgently. "That's scarcely a dignified way for us to arrive in Canterlot, all squashed together in that tiny gondola! Besides, it's traditional when travelling to Canterlot to go by coach."
