I’ll never forget the day I first saw her. Never. Best thing that ever happened in my life.
I know you’re thinkin’ to yourself ‘How’d somepony like you end up with somepony like her? How did this whole shebang start?' Well, that’s what I’m gonna tell ya. And it's not the sort of thing you'd expect.
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

When the Autumn Leaves
The wind brings signs of colder mornings,
Prolonging dusk surpasses the light,
Gone are those days:
Summertime of warmth and laughing,
Summer's time to slumber now
(For) some time
Reaped the harvest, filled the stocks,
Found the scarves and boots from loft,
Gathered firewood to keep our hearths lit and lively.
You can see how the time of green is gone:
Its course is old and fading, losing its vividness.
Months of winter holding near,
We are watching the autumn leaves
Glowing bright in their gilded colors.
Season of work after the summer growth:
Memories of the vivid days still in mind.
Season of change before the winter rest:
Painted world before the snow-white veil.

You're lying on your bed, feeling aroused by the mare sitting next to you. Your boxers, made of silk cotton continuously rub against the very noticeable lump between your legs. Every time you try hard to adjust and hide it, your growth becomes that much more visible to your visitor. She smiles with lust in her eyes, and says, "Oh, it seems somebody likes what they see."
The only light in the room are candles hanging securely around the walls that create a luminous dance of shimmering fires upon their holders. They're bright enough so that you can easily see her, but not so bright as to ruin the romance of the moment. You can also detect the perfect amount of their vanilla scent wafting from the wax, which makes you sigh with alleviation.
The sight you see before you is not one you could've predicted to see before this day, nor did you ever think that it would turn you on in the slightest, but it does.
It's Octavia in two pairs of pink socks, with her

By: DolphinBuster starring: Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Cloud Kicker
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.
My chin was still buried inside her mane, my foreleg st

Applejack looked up from her mug of cider toward the door. Who could that be? I ain't expectin' anypony but my family—and they don't need to knock. She waited for another knock, yet none came. Maybe I'm just hearin' things, she thought. It was awfully hot in the room and after a long day of clearing snow from the roads, she had started to doze off, letting the warmth soothe her aching muscles.
She flicked her ears and continued waiting. Another moment passed, and satisfied that her mind was playing tricks on her, she rested her head on her hooves and emptied her mind once more, letting the warmth take her back to her relaxation.
There it is again. I guess somepony really is at the door. Applejack blinked the sleep out of her eyes and trudged over to the door, yawning. Who could be out here on Hearth's Warmin' Eve? She pulled the door open and her eyes fell upon Rainbow Dash. For barely a

As the blade pierced Pinkie Pie's chest, Rainbow Dash's sanity came sweeping back to her, and she immediately regretted what she did. Trembling, she dropped the bloodied blade, but it was too late, the damage had already been done.
Red liquid poured from the huge gash in Pinkie's chest, and all she could do was utter, "But why " before she collapsed on the ground; her eyes a blank stare.
Rainbow Dash stared at Pinkie Pie in disbelief. "Oh god what have I done?" Her heart began to pound in her chest as she made sense of her horrible act. She had just assaulted one of her friends like the very monster in her dreams did to her.
Panicking, she fell onto her back and started to crawl away from the ghastly scene. Her mind raced with uncertainty of what do to, until finally she let her instincts take over. She stood up, spread her wings, and flew out the door screaming, "HELP! SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!"

MY LITTLE PONY: EYES AND HOURGLASSES
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.

Your pain stabs me
Blood running and gushing from my chest, so red
Hard to breath, hard to see
Your heartbreak rips through me, my essence taken, life killed,
Happiness turned sour, a spoiled soul left in its trail
To see your eyes dull,
Is to see mine the same
Your mysterious past, I ask no question of it, but,
I know pain, sadness, confusion, and insecurities fill it to the brink
I know, for it is in your eyes,
Tired, weary, running from all that you were
All that you are
Somber feelings flood my heart at the thought of it
To see you in pain
How I wish you no more
How I wish you happiness
All that you deserve
A soul so tormented
I cannot stand another moment
You must find your peace
Your safe haven
I am here to help you,
Stand by your side, to fight
And protect you
To ensure your safety
And pursuit of happiness
I must see the fire flicker inside

This mare is beloved by most of the fandom
Mismatching eyes set her apart
The fact that her eyes are never in tandem
Helped her win her way into our hearts
We gave her a daughter, and some give her two
Named Dinky and Sparkler as well
Some call her Derpy, some Ditzy Do
To her fresh baked muffins are swell
But sadly poor Derpy was not to last
She just didn’t know what went wrong
Some folks were outraged with the voice she was cast
And now our dear Ditzy is gone

Lyra blankly stared at the grey mare who continued to pour over her menu. She wished she had taken that break.
"Yes? Do I know- Lyra? Lyra Heartstrings?"
The unicorn could but gaze in disbelief. A sudden fear washed over her as she questioned how her former marefriend would react to seeing her again.
To her surprise, Octavia stood up and hugged her. "How long has it been, Lyra? Two, three years?"
The mint mare's brain slowly began to click as she processed the wall behind the booth that she was staring at. "Yeah."
The classical musician released her giving her a disheartening look at the slow response. "It's so great to see you again. And you're doing well for yourself I see. We should catch up and swap musical adventures."
Lyra couldn't help but detect a hint of snarky sarcasm in the mare's voice. "Well, I'm on break soon." She looked at where she could be spending it. Her boss was not her favorite option. "That actually sounds like a great idea-"

It was one of those secrets.
Lyra awoke, still completely dumbfounded by the events of the previous night. She looked to her left to see that the space Bon Bon would normally occupy was empty. The mare shook her head as she began to talk to herself.
"Of all the things that Octavia had to tell her, she had to tell her that? I mean, not that I'm complaining... That was... Different..." The unicorn let out a lengthy sigh. "I'm going to have to have a word with that pony. Spreading those things around about ponies is not cool. Well... It was nice..."
Lyra groggily hopped out of bed, her weighted eyelids urging her to fall back over; last night had completely worn her out. Her eyes half closed, she scanned the room for a clock, finding it in its usual place. The numbers that stared back at her forced her eyes open with a start.

Her horn glowed and her magical aura enveloped her work uniform. She hurriedly trotted down the stairs, running i

Octavia struck a soft, low note on her cello, quickly followed by Noteworthy on the piano. This is it, big brother, Applejack thought, grinning at the scarlet work stallion from the back of the aisle. Big Macintosh was already in his place beneath the canopy of baby's breath and peonies, and Applejack allowed herself a moment to drink in the sweet summer air and enjoy the hum of the bees and crickets in the field outside of Fluttershy's cottage. If only Rarity hadn't used so many dang hair pins, the earth pony cursed, rubbing a hoof at the vicious, claw-like metal barrettes that held her mane in place. She supposed it was awfully pretty, though; Rarity had created a neater version of Applejack's usual side ponytail, and her straw-blonde hair hung in loose curls over her right wither.
The two musicians changed their tune as Symphony and Lyra joined in on their respective instruments, and the procession began. First went Rarity and Spike, his claw wrapped tenderly around he

She turned her head around to see what fell from the apple tree and she noticed something rainbow-colored. She looked at her brother, who had a very surprised expression on his face. Applejack asked, "Brother are these supposed to fall when applebucking?"
"Eenope," was the only answer the big red stallion could give his sister.

The Doctor's face was flushed still, looking like a crimson pomegranate. His words were lost, and more likely, never to be found.

Of approximately 900 years,there had been only been one to ever catch his eye in the romantic sense...

A soft and comfortably familiar voice whispered softly into her ear, "Come on, Twilight. Time to get up, it's your big day!"
Big day or not, Twilight's head was pounding, her body was aching and her eyes refused to open. She felt like an absolute train wreck. She rolled over and pulled her covers over her head. Maybe the intruder would go away if she ignored them.
"I thought you'd be excited! What's wrong with- Oh, I see..."
Whoever it was, they fell silent as the clopping of hooves reached Twilight's ears, fading off into another room. A couple minutes later, they returned, grabbed one of Twilight's forelegs and pulled her off of her vastly over-sized bed, causing her to land roughly on her hooves. Leaning against her waker, she felt herself being guided somewhere. Where didn't exactly matter, as long as she

“It was nice to see you, Zecora! Come visit again soon!” Twilight said to her friend as the zebra led her out the door.
“I must say, Twilight Sparkle, our meeting was quite fine! I assure you, the pleasure was entirely mine!” the zebra called back over her shoulder in her signature rhyme.
That went well, for once, Twilight mused to herself. Zecora had shown up several minutes early, bearing a letter confirming her appointment as Ambassador, as well as a large stack of paperwork containing everything from new trade proposals to military treaties. With each new proposal, Twilight felt her confidence grow; each one had been well-written, respectful, and most importantly, beneficial to both nations.
She stepped into the hallway outside the meeting room and stretched out with a pleasurable groan, contemplating taking a brisk walk before her next audience.

Rainbow Dash stretched her wings and silently yawned. It was entirely too early to be awake, a fact made clear to her by the lack of sunlight and the dying crackles of the fire. Still, in the absence of the fire, a welcoming warmth encompassed her, and as she patted around in the darkness, she found herself draped in a thick blanket, which she tightened around herself, resting her head on something soft and warm. Mmm, Applejack, she thought, as her mind started to drift off into a deep slumber once more.
Her attempted return to sleep was short lived, however, as her face was immediately pelted repeatedly with a thin, furry object. Grasping consciousness again, Rainbow noticed that her pillow was not Applejack, but rather Winona, whose tail was the offending object. Shortly after this realization, a slobbery tongue covered every inch of Rainbow's face, leaving thick trails of drool dribbling down onto the floor.

He had been walking for a good 15 minutes when he suddenly saw a figure underneath a dimming street light. Butters, who never feared of strangers, slowly walked up to the lone figure. As he got closer, he saw that the person was turned away from him. He noticed that it was a boy around the same age with dirty blonde, unkept hair and tattered clothing. The one thing that caught Butters eyes, though, was the orange jacket.
