Obsessive Collection Disorder
"Okay, so I'll put the hydra card here. My timber wolf card here. Hm...where should I put my fairy card?" Twilight put her hoof to her chin as she thought, looking down at the flat piece of cardboard showing the image of a fairy (what looked like a tiny pegasus with a flowing blonde mane and crystal-clear gown). It was one of the many cards Twilight, as well as three-fourths of Ponyville, collected as a part of the "Creatures of the Everfree" card series-the latest collector's fad to hit Equestria.
"Ah-hah! Right here!" Twilight thought in triumph, sliding the fairy card into an empty slot, "Gotta be organized for when I show you to my friends, just as soon as I finish my collection."
About two years before, a group of three scientist unicorns from the Canterlot University of Scientific and Magical Research spent an enormous sum

Chapter Six: Comfort
Smokey set a towel wrapped around a chunk of snow upon Fluttershy's forehead to help reduce the fever. Even though the pegasus' shuddering body revolted against having anything cold touch her, she knew it was what she needed to fight the fever. Her painkiller had worn off and the dull throbbing in her hoof added to her misery.
The dragon retrieved another pain pill and a glass of water for her. "Here you are, Miss Fluttershy. Another painkiller for your hoof."
Removing the makeshift ice pack from her forehead, Fluttershy slowly sat upright. She accepted the proffered capsule and swallowed it down with the glass of water. Handing it back to the reptile, she snuggled back under the covers and replaced the cold press on her head.
"I'll go out and get you some medicine right away." Smokey brushed Fluttershy's cheek with the backs of his index and middle fingers. He wasn't too fon

Pull up a seat and let Auntie Vi spin you a story... Okay, so there I was one day, wanderin’ down a street, not really doin’ anything at all - just chillin' y'know? 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

It was cold winters day at sweet apple acers, and the day looked to maybe develop some snow. A breeze came over the farm and nearly blew Apple Jacks hat off. She quickly grabbed it and put it back on her head. Apple Jack was sitting near the barn, and having just finished her work for the day and was contemplating what to do. She glanced up at the clouds in the sky and let out a long breath seeing it stream out in front of her because of the winter chill. Apple Jack thought to her self, ' I recon I aught to head on down to Ponyville and see what my friends are all up to.' So after carefully putting up all the apples she had gathered she began to trot on down to Ponyville.
Meanwhile in Ponyville Pinkie Pie was jumping up and down even more excitedly than usual. "Hey hey Dashie look! It's starting to snow! See see see see seeseesee!!!!!!" said Pinkie Pie as she leapt up trying to catch a snowflake in her mouth. Rainbow Dash quickly leaped up and pulled Pinkie back into the bus

Look down my mouth and you'll see the hell within
Yeah, I'm a real fucking monster, there ain't a thing you can do
Just close your eyes and wait for me to come for you.

Pretend you didn't see the eyes, that warm green
Pull up the covers, I'll have to thank ya
I call my favorite meal "kiddie in a blanket."

Lyra stumbled through the door, Bon Bon wobbling in afterwords. Twilight's organization had sped up the winter wrap-up incredibly, but neither mare had ever worked quite that hard before. There were going to be a lot of sore legs and wings tomorrow morning all across Ponyville.
"I think...we need a bath..." Lyra opined wearily.
"You are probably right...My legs are killing me." Bon Bon said as she sank to the floor next to the cupboard.
"You want me to go run it for, you, don't you?"
Bon Bon was making soulful foal eyes at her partner.
"Fine, you lazy mare," Lyra said with a tired chuckle, trotting towards the bathroom.
"I'll bring apple cider," came the call from the kitchen. That did sound good. Leave it to Bon Bon to know what to serve two wiped out ponies...
Lyra pulled the faucet to its hottest setting, since the water always ran cold to start, and held her hock under the stream of water. The chill felt good over her battered leg. Why had she volunteered for field duty? She couldn

The mechanical beast gave out a loud roar and stuck its neck high in the air. A blast of fire shot from its open maw, scorching the stone ceiling.
"Run. NOW!" Twilight shouted. The machine roared and lifted it two legs from the floor, the claws now extended straight in front. It then shot out another gout of fire and began to charge down the hall as its wheels moved. The ponies noticed how its tail was letting out even more steam.
The unicorn ran for the door at the other end of the stone hallway, her friends following her. When they made it to the heavy wooden door, Twilight Sparkle tried to push it open but she discovered it was locked. She pounded on it with her hooves. "Open up! Open up! You want the princess Megan to be killed or what?" There was no response.
Twilight Sparkle started to hit the door with her hammer, the tool barely leaving mere dents in it.
Rainbow Dash started to violently slash away at the door with her sword as wood chips sc

To you Cruel world, friends and all,
I say goodbye, as now I fall.
You've shown me pain, sadness and fear.
It cut me deep, bled out my cheer.
But still I laughed, as though to hide,
The gaping hole, my heart reside.
I wore a mask of borrowed cheer
to hide behind, to cover my fear
For I thought, I hoped, a prayer
that one day I'd be, a happy mare.
But so it is not and never shall be.
The impossible wish, crushed within me
Ground to dust, from hooves to head.
It pours on out through tears I shed.
I can't go on, this pain I hide,
I've given up, can't keep inside.
So now I fall, and now I die
For though I laugh, Inside I cry...

Chapter 1: Pinkie of the Dead
Celestia’s sun slowly began its descent into the distant horizon, turning the sky a haunting red. Little foals, colts and fillies started to wander the streets of Ponyville, dressed in their most terrifying and impressive costumes. There were ghosts, and monsters, goblins and ghouls. There was even a little orange pegasus dressed as an Eagle, a white hood with a hooked beak and a set of brown feathers over her body. With her, there was a little white unicorn dressed up as a rock-star and a little yellow earth pony dressed as a buffalo, red and white paint streaked over her face and a large feathered headdress atop her crown.
“Scootaloo, why couldn’t you just pick a normal costume to wear?” Sweetie Belle asked her feathered friend.
“Because I’m trying to create a different image,” Scootaloo retorted.

Twilight vs. Oral Hygiene
The sun was high on the bright and cheerful day in Ponyville. Well, cheerful for most.
Twilight Sparkle stood inside the town's library, a very aggravated look on her face. Her hoof tapped against the ground in irritation, her eyes boring holes into a burly unicorn stallion that stood in front of her. He had a clipboard floating in front of his face as a levitating pen scribbled notes. A small emblem on his saddlebag read "Ponyville Plumbing Services".
"Right, so that's all of it." said the stallion, finishing what he was writing before floating the pen into his saddle-bag. But the scowl on Twilight's face remained.
"I still can't believe you had to take out every single one of my pipes." Twilight said.
The stallion shrugged, "What can I say Lady? This library may look good on the outside, but it's old and everything about it is either completely out of date or aging fast. From the floorboards," he ran his hoof along the wood floor, tracing a long crack

"Consarn it Pinkie Pie. How do you manage to cause such a mess?" Applejack thought, cleaning off yet another glob of frosting with a paper towel before tossing it into a nearby garbage pail.
She looked around and sighed. The entire bedroom was a disaster. Baking utensils scattered all around the floor like pieces of debris after a hurricane. Globs of batter and frosting covered the walls, floor and ceiling. Glassware that once gave the pink mare's room an element of beauty were shattered, pieces of which littered the floor like shrapnel. It was too great of a mess to be handled by one pony, even if that one pony happened to be Pinkie Pie.
Frustrated with her lack of success cleaning solo, the pink mare ran outside to ask passing ponies for assistance. She wasn't having any luck until Applejack and Rainbow Dash walked by, giving their friend a small wave as they passed. Pinkie Pie took advantage of the opportunity and jumped in front of them, her breathing hea

Chapter 5: A Day at the Spa
Lowering herself slowly into the steaming hot tub, Fluttershy let out a long, content sigh while she sank into complete relaxation. Once she had adjusted to the rapid temperature change, she could feel every muscle in her body loosen while she closed her eyes and laid her head back. She needed a day where she could just unwind without having to worry about picking up the kids from school or anything else, and the spa was just what the doctor ordered.
“This feels more amazing every time I come here,” she told Rarity, who sat across from her. “I didn’t even realize I was this tense.”
“You never can,” Rarity replied. “It’s just the stresses of life, I suppose. Sometimes you get so busy in the chaos of the day that you forget how much pressure you’re building up inside. That’s what the spa is for!”
Fluttershy could easily agree on that. Even though it was hard to believe that they had

CHAPTER 3: Country as Apple Pie
Beads of sweat poured down Bismarck's orange coat and chestnut mane as he made his way through the spanning acres of the Apple family orchards and gazed at what he considered the most beautiful place in all of Equestria. Having been working since the crack of dawn, he watched in admiration as the emerald and ruby hues of the apple trees began to glow a bright orange with the rising sun until the slowly approaching afternoon brightened the world around him.
Though the morning air was still somewhat crisp, the heat was greater than usual. Pulling the tip of his hat down to cover his eyes, the rugged stallion faced away from the apple tree, reared back, and kicked it with a tremendous force. A loud boom sounded from the shaking trunk and seemingly echoed through the orchard while vibrations from the impact shook the tree like a maraca until every single crimson apple fell towards the ground and into a large wooden barrel at the base.
Lay Off Hasbro and Stop Sending Hate-MailIt should come as no great surprise that during the couple of years that the brony community has been growing, more and more people have been finding reasons to object to some of the decisions that Hasbro have chosen to make. One of the most well-known issues was the infamous 'Derpy' situation, where certain people actively sent hate-mail to Hasbro for 'altering' the Derpy Hooves character. Despite the entire fiasco being unsympathetic and diabolical the community overreaction was embarrassing, to say the least it did a lot to suggest that, when they feel scorned, some bronies can be vicious little bastards.Lay Off Hasbro and Stop Sending Hate-Mail2 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Being made aware of the radical potential of bronies suggests that history may repeat itself should other changes be made that upset the brony status quo. People seem to forget that Hasbro have their own vested interest in making particular business decisions. Most are agreed upon by bronies, but a few are received poorly by the fandom. But Hasbro's choices are made w

CHAPTER 10: Cutie Mark Criss-cross (First draft. Final version in the works)
Bucky's eyesight remained blurry as he looked around, desperately hoping to find something or somepony who could help him. He was in a room of some sort, but felt too nauseous to tell whose it was. His chest heaved with difficulty with each gasp of air becoming more shallow than the last while something clung tightly on his throat. His hoof grasped his neck to feel his Cutie Mark Crusader's cape. He had forgotten that he had put it on, but now it was choking him. Grasping at the knot, he tore it off, flooding oxygen into his lungs. He coughed loudly and painfully, gasping for a while before he sunk his head back to the cold floor. Taking the moment to catch his breath, his green eyes darted around, searching his surroundings. He was inside a small warm bedroom, not the cool basement where he once was. Stuffed animals surrounded him from all sides, their glass eyes watching his every move and motion an

Chapter 15: Where the Sunlight Doesn't Reach
Rainbow and Applejack had been running for some time now. It was very dark and cold. They could feel the dampness in the air go inside their noses and spread across their body. The air was very stiff and they couldn't run very well because of the terrain. They tripped and fell here and there with holes, roots and rocks. Applejack had her mane loose for a long time now, both hair bands gone a long time ago in a tree's branches.
Streaks of light poured here and there from small gaps so it wasn't that hard to see. Rainbow's mane got stuck once or twice and her hooves started to ache. They needed to outrun it and escape to the farthest place they could go as long as it didn't catch them. If they could only lose it they'd at least slow down. That didn't seem to be the case. The screeching got louder as it came nearer and nearer. They found a small ditch and cowered in there. Rainbow realized Applejack was chewing on her hair as it w

CHAPTER 4: High Fliers
Orion and Bucky looked up into the deep blue sky in amazement as the last ripples of the rainbow shockwave slowly dissolved high above them, their vivid hues shimmering in a dazzling spectrum before their very eyes. Though both colts had grown up knowing very well what a sonic rainboom was, their familiarity with the great spectacle still never ceased to amaze them. Before the last waves of light finally faded into the azure atmosphere, one more echo of powerful thunder roared around them, as if announcing its departure. Even after the sky returned to normal, the two colts continued to stare upward with a sense of intrigued wonder.
"Was…that," Orion stammered, still in shock, "a sonic rainboom?"
"Yeah, but it was huge! Ah've never seen a one that powerful before!"
Looking at each other with wide grins, they raced past Rainbow Dash’s home and towards the far away woods to see what was happening. Though the phenomenon was nothing new to the ci
