Shame at the Checkout
Beads of cold sweat rolled down Rainbow Dash's neck. The hot ceiling lights above intensifying the anxiety she felt to such a point that she felt as though she was going to pass out. There she was, standing in the middle of Ponyville's largest store. Her eyes were wide, staring at the newest piece of fan-merchandise being sold.
No, it wasn't anything to do with the Wonderbolts.
It was a limited-time offer Daring Do wallet. Rainbow Dash had to keep her mouth shut to prevent drooling. The wallet was grey and had adventurer's face printed on the front, grinning competitively at some invisible foe. She was a force to be reckoned with, even as just a picture. Hilariously, based on how she looked out of the wallet, Rainbow Dash felt like she was the foe- her hero's ruby eyes piercing into her own like arrows in bows, primed to fire.
Overall, it was beyond awesome, much better t

A/N I was actually trying to write more of Everypony Loves and watching the premiere episode of the third season when I came up with this. I only have one more chapter planned, TWO max. Unless this is really well received and after the ending people really want more I might consider it unless I can't think of a coherent way to continue it. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it. I Loooove comments so let me know what you think. Also I'm sorry that Pinkie Pie's part wasn't as good, I'm not very good at writing for her, but I'm trying to improve! (yay)

My Little DashieOk, don't worry yourselves everyone. This is not a drill. Due to Deviant Art's word cap, I realized a bunch of edits going into my story have not been getting updated. So, I made a Google Doc which you can follow here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NwdIJMALxxi6egHz832IuNIHy1J7JAqulJFoGeLM5tY/edit?hl=en_US or an actual hyperlinky thingy below in the description. I was gonna just delete this and re-post something about it, but with so many of you commenting I was just overcome by your words. So, I wanted to keep them so that I can remember you all!

The next day Moonwing awakens to animals with curious looks on their faces, it was the break of dawn, he could hear Fluttershy waking up and moving around upstairs Moonwing yawns and stretches, revealing his fangs. All of the animals darted back to their little hiding places, in the process making a lot of noise running into things. Fluttershy was now on her way downstairs.
Moonwing:* feeling horrible thought to himself* you blew it, that fast, I guess I really do look like a monster…
He looks around the room and sees something that gives him hope, one white bunny was in a corner, he was still scared, but apparently not as scared as the rest. He reaches out a hoof to make contact with the bunny, only to have it smacked away. The bunny dashed for the stares to Fluttershy, who saw the what he had done.
Fluttershy: Moonwing, is everything ok?
Moonwing: *holding back tears* yeah, everything’s fine… The animals were just in the wrong place, at the wrong time…

Boredom will come eventually, but for now entertainment can be found in going over what went wrong. His plans had gone perfectly so it was difficult to find what flaws there were. Normally he wouldn't admit that he made any and that it was the fault of those around him that he was encased this way. After all, he was the smartest being in all of Equestria, the most clever, and he could do no wrong. However, this is different.Waiting4 years ago in Drama More Like This

#104) Aren't bronies and furries the exact same thing? I think it's funny that so many bronies get offended when they're compared to furries. I don't see furries getting quite as offended about the comparison. Hah.
Answer: This is really the million-dollar question: are bronies and furries the same thing? The answer is, awkwardly, a little bit of both. Let's set the cards upon the table: there are all sorts of variables that come into the equation when defining exactly what a brony is. That's the first difficulty; if a brony is merely an adult watching the show, then you can't effectively argue that they're furries by definition just for doing that. If you did, then any parent watching the show with their child, or anyone who watched "Watership Down" or "The Animals of Farthing Wood" as children, or myriad other cartoons about animals, would be furries, which is ludicrous.
Just watching "Friendship is Magic" doesn't create a latent association with furries, despite what s

As the festivities continued uninterrupted below, the winged pony ascended the stairwell and went through each room of the building, floor by floor — kitchen, bedroom, library, stockroom, and whooooaaaaaa! She reached the top floor and her wall-eyes gazed around the sight of massive room that amassed a labyrinthine jungle of the rusted cogs and jagged gears of the Old Clock Tower. The patchwork of holes left in the broken roof allowed glowing beams of sunlight to stream into the room, as a flock of white pigeons fluttered out. The walls hung with hundreds of clocks, clocks of all kinds, all different shapes and sizes, ticking and tocking in all different ways. Position

When the clock strikes midnight its dooms day and everyone has hit the floor.

The ones who were simply forced to meet their ends.

Final Dreams of a Filly Ch. 1The moon was chillingly beautiful. The young filly watched it silently; a rare moment of reverence for her normally exuberant personality. A chill ran through her tiny frame and she pulled the thin material closer around her fledgling wings, trying to trap her frail body heat beneath the scarlet cape and emblem. A smile pulled at the corner of her mouth as her lavender eyes caught sight of the insignia. The symbol glittered in the moonlight, tendrils of frost having begun to collect on the surface of the cape. Winter was coming - and soon.Final Dreams of a Filly Ch. 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Her eyes fell away from the frost as she dismissed it. So what if it was cold? The filly nestled closer betwixt the wooden beams of her residence and closed her eyes tight in defiance. There was no time to worry about that now. Now it was time to sleep. Every filly knew the moon meant that, and even she didn't have the energy to fight its silent nocturne. "Goodnight, mom.

Rainbow Dash looked around herself, and all she saw was total darkness. All she felt was a chill that froze her to the bone. The blue Pegasus pony tried to move, but she could not. When she tried to open her mouth to yell for help she could not. The athletic pony could not move one bit, and felt scared, more scared than she had ever felt in her life.
Rainbow Dash thought on how much she had wanted to do with her life. RD thought about all the tricks she had wanted to learn, all of her plans to join the Wonder Bolts, all the things she had wanted to do with her friends. When she thought of Apple Jack at this time a sudden light nearly blinded her, Rainbow Dash quickly squeezed her eyes shut to protect them for the light. She slowly squinted one open, and off in the distance she saw a bright ball of light just floating off in the distance.
That ball of light just seemed to be there, it didn't seem to have any source, or purpose to be there. It was as bright as the sun on a new dawn, but

Pinkie walked through Sugar Cube Corner. It was early yet, the shop hadn't opened. She watched the light from the rising sun play across the colourful candies and sweets, making them sparkle like diamonds. She straightened a display of lollipops until it looked perfect and she smiled at the beauty of it.
She walked out the shop door and locked it behind her, even though she knew it would never open again. They only had a few minutes left.
Putting on her best smile she bounced over down the street and towards a table where her friends were gathered round.

Pinkie Pie Character ReviewTrue story when I first decided to write this review, it was simply going to read, "She's just being Pinkie Pie", as I felt that this would be the perfect way to summarise her detailed and intricate character. But then I figured that that would be taking the easy way out, and thus decided to write a full-size review for Pinkie Pie. After all, she deserves just as much analysis as every other character within the mane cast, even if trying to rationalise Pinkie Pie's behaviour is something of an impossible task at times.Pinkie Pie Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Pinkie Pie is the sort of character that makes a fan-base. Whereas some characters rightfully deliver their own iconic lines and meme-worthy phrases, Pinkie Pie is in a league of her own. This is because her character is noticeably different from the rest of the mane cast, placing her in a position almost outside of the usual narrative of "Friendship is Magic". She can be a narrator for events outside of her control; she can break the fourth wall with glances to t

Chapter II: "The Welcome Wagon Comes to Town"
Written by Diane N. Tran
For the first time in her mail-mare career, the pegasus named Derpy Hooves was late in a delivery. That delivery consisted of one single, solitary letter to be dropped off at the very last residence of her rounds, Ponyville's Old Clock Tower. When she arrived at the building, she was, of course, as punctual as ever, but the mail-box was still missing from the lawn and she didn't have the courage to knock on the door again.
Dressed in her saddlebags, pacing back and forth, she was at a loss of what to do at the moment, so she paced some more. If she left it on the doorstep, the wind could blow it away. If she slipped it underneath the doormat, it might not be seen. Then a thought came to her, perhaps she could squeeze the letter between the cracks of the door.
