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

CHAPTER 1: THE FIRST CHAPTER
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.

A fiery gate has appeared on the outskirts of Ponyville. A horde of grotesque monsters has overrun the town and the only hope is Applejack and Pinkie Pie. Will they succeed where the guards before them failed? Twilight is away on errands for Celestia's magical school but even she will experience the changes. Rarity remains trapped in Canterlot while Fluttershy finds herself in the realm of Discord. And whatever happened to Rainbow Dash?

Applejack jumped out of the train car before it had come to a full stop. The other passengers were curious as to why they had stopped outside of Ponyville, but none of them were filled with fear and horror like Applejack. She of all ponies knew to be expecting the worst and she had seen the smoke in the distance. She had donned the iron-plated armour she had received from Brawny Spirit and strapped the sword on her back.

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.”

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.

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.

“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.”

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.

"Ya all right, sugar cube?" Applejack asked with concern. Twilight pried her eyes away from the window.
"Hmm? Oh, yeah, I'm fine, just lost in my own thoughts," Twilight answered and put on a smile. "I just can't help but wonder what the Princess wants with us after all these years."
"She probably just wants to throw us a reunion party," Spike said and relaxed in his chair.
"It's been three years, Twalight. Three years since we were all together last," Applejack pointed out. Twilight nodded.

Twilight, who had thought that the momentous reunion with her beloved mentor back in her home town, Canterlot, would have been the best night in her entire life, hooves down. She was looking forward to it for such a long time, her hopes and dreams building to a point in which that the moment she entered the main hall in her specially made star-inspired dress and saw her idol and mentor, Princess Celestia, atop the stairway, she almost exploded from the sheer joy and delight.
Then...just as Twilight started to converse with Celestia about everything she had learned in Ponyville, and all of her wonderful adventures and friends, Luna suddenly appeared and whispered something into the solar Princess' ear. Twilight was at first pondering when Luna had shown up, or where she had appeared from so suddenly, then her mind instantly switched into panic mode when Celestia's face switched into on full of dismay.
"Um, Princess Celestia?" Twilight asked worriedly, "Is e
A Precious GiftTwilight Sparkle stepped lightly off of the train car that had just carried her to Canterlot. The evening was brisk and the smell of fallen leaves permeated the air, filling her nostrils with the earthy scent. This was definitely among her favorite times of the year and the only thing that could've made the dusk hour any better was to be spending it back in Ponyville. The rural hamlet, with its vast, sprawling orchards and surrounding woodland, offered what was quite possibly the best autumn view in Equestria. However, she had important business in the city that required her attention and the running of the leaves was still a week away, so she still had plenty of time to enjoy nature's beauty.A Precious Gift1 year ago in Romance More Like This
What had drawn her to Canterlot in the first place had been a simple letter. Simple, but it no way ordinary. This particular letter had been sent to her by Luna, the Princess of the Moon, who apparently wanted to speak to Twilight face-to-face. Luna was a good (if a little out-of-touch) pony and

Luna took to the skies, her wings stretching out and lifting her into the air, while Twilight quickly navigated through the streets. She flew forward, then steadied to a glide as she circled around the monster, trying to make out how much damage was being caused. It was still on the brim of Ponyville, though a few houses had already been smashed and people were scattering everywhere in fright. Though, she found where the scream came from, though she wishes she didn't.A Princess's Mission Chapter 52 years ago in Romance More Like This

"Oh Luna We shouldn't Spike might hear us " Twilight said softly, wrapped in Luna's arms.
"Shh... don't worry about him it's all about us right now " Luna replied sweetly, moving her face back towards Twilight's.
Luna awoke slowly, not quite wanting to leave her dream, but found herself pulled out of it anyways. And like all great dreams, she couldn't manage to fall back asleep to rejoin it. She snuggled close to the soft, warm pillow she had her arms wrapped around. Hugging it, she nuzzled her face into the soft, sweet smelling locks of hair that lay next to her. She loved the small, dreamy moan it made when she traced her fingers over its soft fabric. Conscious thoughts appeared in her head as it seemed to snuggle backwards into her. 'Wait Moan? Hair!?'
Her eyes flashed open immediately, and her dream seemed to have come true. She was lying in bed, her arms encircled around Twilight, who was pressed up against her, though somehow still

Luna was soon flying over the outskirts of Ponyville, the orchard of apple trees that made up the Sweet Apple Acres orchard speeding past. She could see Twilight's library approaching, easily spotted since it was the only building that was literally carved into a live tree. How the building stayed alive without its internal structuring, Luna never knew. Although, looking over it, she became aware of the dull light that was slowly spreading from the eastern horizon. She had almost forgotten her one true duty of being the Goddess of the Night.
Flipping over so that she was flying upside down, she focused on the huge, pearly white moon that hovered overhead. With a glowing hand outstretched, she slowly pulled it down to the western horizon, releasing it so it may follow the orbital path itself. The beautiful patterns of stars, which she designed herself, followed slowly behind.
Luna yawned lightly. Setting the moon every morning was a tiring process, though she insisted tha
A Princess's Mission Chapter 4As Luna pulled her consciousness back into her own mind, the last thing she expected was the wall that seemed to hit her head-on. 'Drowsy' was an understatement, she was absolutely exhausted. She could barely think properly, but she could tell that she didn't correctly calculate the amount of magic and energy that was required to not only completely clean out and restock a library, but suspend herself in another person's dreams. Getting into a fight once there had only added to the problem. As much as she tried to fight the urge, sleep began to overtake her, and being wrapped in a warm blanket became her worst enemy in the struggle. Even though the warm, and quite soft, body that seemed to be pressed up against her left her arms, she knew she was losing the fight. She felt two hands gently grip her by the shoulders, and lie her down flat against the couch. She didn't resist. She couldn't.

Spike brushed his teeth, getting his breakfast off his breath, and replacing it with the minty coolness of toothpaste. He could simply breathe fire to get rid of it, but he decided this was better than the smell of incinerated bacon and eggs. He rinsed his mouth, and walked back to his bedroom. There was one more thing he needed to retrieve before leaving. He walked to his bedside table, opened the drawer, and delicately picked up the shiny silver object. Just then, the doorbell rang.
He quickly pocketed it and glanced out his door. Luna was standing there, talking to Applebloom. He marveled for a moment how pretty she was in that yellow sundress and bow, which matched her dazzling orange eyes perfectly. He was glad he took extra care into making his usually crazed pillow head of green hair presentable. Though, her quickly surprised face snapped him out of it.

A pair of bare feet appeared first, followed by a body covered in deep purple fabric and lastly a head full of dirty blonde hair. A ragged group of ponies observed him as he climbed down the ladder. They looked at a creature that they had never seen before. None of them dared move and observed as he slowly descended into their sewer. None of them except for a pegasus. She strode confidently below the opening.
"What business do you have among the poor of Canterlot, outlander?"
The creature nearly fell off the ladder. He quickly grabbed the steps and jumped down the rest of the short way. He looked at her curiously: a mare with a dark purple coat, a short magenta mane and a golden ring in each ear.
"I'm just passing through here, looking for someone in a black robe," the outlander replied defensively and raised his arms.

Given her age, Celestia was well acquainted with the fact that life wasn't fair.
She also knew the price of immortality was that this unfairness just so happened to last a little while longer than everyone else's. The path she preferred may not be the right one for another and this was perfectly okay. Existence was a subjective experience, each pair of eyes able to behold a different sight despite gazing at the same work of art, and she had sat through enough rants and expressions to know that her citizen's needs were severe in their distinctions and variations.
What is a miracle to one may be a curse to another. The princess was no exception to the rule.
It was also a matter of selflessness, Celestia's own double-ended blade. Her unabashed, raw willingness to give just for the sake of giving was both what she stood tall for and what brought her down to her knees. Sacrifice was what her universe w

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.

Time moved painfully slow in Ponyville. The more Twilight thought about it, the more irritated she became. Eventually, she magically imploded the only clock in her library house for she no longer wished to be reminded of time. The incessant ticking, tick after tock, just reminded her how long she had been separated from Luna. She knew it was just an unnecessary stress, so she took care of it.
In roughly two days' time, Twilight had gone from quasi-competent Aura Bloom competitor to anti-social hermit, bent on sheltering in her house as if sunlight would make her transparent. Her friends knew she was emotionally distressed, but they were still clueless as to why. They all believed that she was still upset about her failure in the Aura Bloom; there was hardly any suspicion that she was aching on a much more profound level.
After running away from Luna, she spent little time in Canterlot. Her things had alread
