The sky began to dim as the fiery orb descended upon the horizon. Within moments, it was gone, and the land of Equestria was now deprived of it's light and warmth. There was a time when that would be the end of Celestia's daily duties, but these days, there was one final task she had to perform. Turning around, she now faced the east.
Closing her eyes once more, her horn began to glow again as she focused her power into moving yet another important part of the world. Slowly, the pale white orb rose above the eastern horizon until it hung gracefully in the night sky. What followed was a swarm of tiny dots of light which surrounded the orb and the blackn

The Twilights of Spike's Heart Chapter Eight: The End of a Beginning
As Twilight and Spike walked back to the library, the young dragon just seemed to have one question on his mind.
“But do you like me too?” asked Spike.
Twilight giggled slightly. “Yes Spike, for the fiftieth time yes.”
“But you said you loved me. Does that mean you like me or you like me as a friend or maybe you-“
Spike’s seemingly endless babbling was quickly cut short when Twilight suddenly planted a quick kiss on his lips. “Does that answer the question, Spike?” Twilight asked with a warm smile.
As soon as Twilight’s lips met his, Spike froze. The only sign of life in his shocked face was a quickly growing blush. After a few more seconds the purple dragon spoke. “Uhhhhhhh, yes?”
Twilight couldn’t help but giggle at Spike’s innocent answer. “Okay then. Shall we continue back to the library now?

I: The Gifted Child
Bedroom secured by wisdom
Book piles be my fortress
Candle lighting through the nights
I studied the ways of magic
Learned of the old knowledge and lore
Gathered my knowing of spells
and stories with the days gone by
Ever since seeing Her raise the Sun
I've had the thirst for learning more
Achieve my tasks, fulfill my dreams
Study under the greatest one
Days turned evenings as time flies
Taken in the endless books
Thousandfold of words in my mind
At last the day had arrived:
Prepared the best I could achieve
I walked the stairs to the tower
Under the shade of royal Sun
Enter the test, my gifted child
Show them the skills you withhold
If you're the one I've searched for
Try hatch the egg of old beast

It had only been three days since she and her friends had arrived in the city, and thus only three days since her colt-firend, Dusk, had asked her that very important question. Twilight decision was not something that she regretted. On the contrary, it made her all the happier. But now that she'd made her decision, there were many things that needed to be sorted out. And one of those things was exactly why she was walking down the city's main street.
For as she continued down the road, she eventually came upon her destination. The royal palace of Canterlot. This place had, during much of her upbringing, been like a second home to her. And it always made her happy to see it. Walking up the main stairs, she eventually came upon the massi

Princess Cadence was lying on a wheeled table, being moved quickly down the hallway of the hospital, her belly swollen over the last few months. Today was the day. Alongside the doctors was her husband, Shining Armour, who had her hoof in his as they kept moving.
"It's okay honey! Everything's going to be fine!" He said reassuringly.
Cadence smiled back at him. She opened her mouth to reply to him but suddenly winced and she placed her free hoof over her midriff. This clearly caused the doctors some worry.
"Her contractions are getting more frequent! Call in more nurses!" One of them ordered.
A nearby nurse nodded and ran off to carry out the order. Meanwhile, the rest of them had finally arrived at their destination, the delivery room. They opened the doors and moved the table and princess inside. As they moved in. One of the doctors stepped aside and stood between Shining and

Princess Cadence, having finally been given some time off from her ambassadorial duties, was relaxing in one of the many gardens of the palace of Canterlot. She was sitting on one of the many benches in the park, watching happily as her two children, Star and Blaze, playing with each other on the grass nearby. Star was having fun teasing her younger brother by flying above him and Blaze jumping up and trying to catch her.
Cadence allowed herself a moment of pride. It was unusual for foals to develop their abilities this young, but both of her children had gained a degree of control over their magical abilities, despite only being a couple of months old. And with Star she had also managed to succeed at some rudimentary flight. But then, Star was an alicorn after all.
The princess looked to her right and saw her other family nearby. Her husband, Shining Armour, was taking with his sister, Twilight, who had come by to the city for a vi

Air colored a lavender-blue, the smallest rays of light peaked over the horizon to shine towards the sprawling lands that lay over that horizon. These were the most petite of beams however, not enough to bring true light to those who it passed over but enough to signal the dawn of day. It was these lights that lightened the sky to the shade of the only one viewing them with great wonder, a being with the body of a pony, the wings of a pegasus and the horn of a unicorn while she was none of these things.

Twilight Sparkle was standing in the middle of the main room of the library, waiting for the young dragon to come out of the kitchen. Soon enough, he arrived, carrying the tablemats she'd been asking for.
"Yep. They're right here." He said.
She smiled as Spike began placing them around the large table twilight had conjured up soon before. She looked around and admired her work. She, Spike and Dusk had spent the last few days making sure everything here was clean and orderly for the big upcoming visit. And she was confident everything would go right.
"I still can't believe it. Shining AND Cadence! Here together for the first time since their wedding!" Twilight exclaimed happily.
It had only been declared a few days ago, but she was still happy about it. Shining Armour and Princess Cadence had managed to find space in their schedules to visit her in Ponyville. She'd been looking forward to it all week. Her smile vanished however as

Twelve numbers on a clock. She liked looking at clocks. They were steady. Unsurprising. The numbers were comforting, helped her to plan her exit strategies. she knew that when the duotone kitchen clock's little hand was on the six, and the big hand was on the three, even though her little blue alarm clock said it was only six o'clock, she had better leave the house quick even if her lunch wasn't packed, because it took over forty minutes to walk to school, and she had only one more tardy mark until the teacher called Mommy. Mommy didn't like it when the teacher phoned her, and never gave her dinner when she got a call, so she supposed it was better to be safe than sorry.
Lament of a princessThe sky was bright orange. The sun had been setting for the past few minutes now and it's fading light was creating a spectacular scene.

But it was next to the tree where the truly important sight was. It was a stone. Old and worn, with etchings on one side. As the sun's light began to dim, a figure approached the stone. An alicorn, with dark blue fur and a mane that contained the very night sky.
She approached the stone and gently sat down. Her gaze never left the etchings, which had been partly obscured by moss and ivy. Carefully, making sure not to damage thje stone, she used her hoof to brush the plants away, revealing the markings more clearly. As she looked upon them, her expression, which until then had been fairly stoic, eventually began to morph into one of pain. Her eyes shut tightly as they began to well up.

It didn't matter. There was no past, no future. Only the flames.
Oh, there was the light too! A light that came from everywhere! But mostly there was the flames.
Twisting, flickering, burning at her very soul. The pain was immeasurable, but it had always existed, as far back as she could remember, and she could remember a long time.
Or maybe she could... It was somewhat hard to measure time when there was nothing for her to measure it against. There was only the flames, eating away at her, yet never making her any smaller. Forever burning, the fire was all that existed.
Her body was... Wait, did she even have a body? Maybe she did at some point. At least she thought she did. Maybe she did.

In his own way he is mature and level-headed and endlessly perceptive of the needs and feelings of those around him. So when he sets Haruhi and Hikaru up on a date on that warm summer day in Karuizawa, he knows that he is probably doing the right thing. Hikaru, though he doesn't know it yet, has feelings for Haruhi. So, logic dictates that as Hikaru's brother it is practically his responsibility to make sure the date happens.
