A Ponyville WeddingThe town was abuzz with chatter. Ponies from all over Ponyville were gathering outside the town hall, hoping to catch a glimpse of the people who entered or left the building. But their anticipation would have to wait as the ceremony had yet to begin.A Ponyville Wedding1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
It had been many months since news had reached the town, that a wedding would take place. An what a wedding it would be. The pegasi, under Rainbow Dash's instructions, had cleared the skies above town of any clouds that might rain today. As such, they could not have chosen a more gloriously sunny day on which to hold the proceedings.
And the wedding was not the only exciting news for the townsfolk. For rumour had it that a very important pony would be conducting the ceremony. Princess Celestia herself was arriving n town to marry the lucky couple, alongside her sister Luna. That in itself was gossip-worthy info. The two princesses had not set hoof in Ponyville since the changeling incursion a year ago. And many were grateful th

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

At this point, I realized that I had gotten no reply. So I pushed open the door to find the girl hunched over her laptop with Urbanears on her head.
"Hey, whatcha doing?" I asked her, glancing over her shoulder at the animated screen.
She looked up, not removing her headphones and shot me such a poisonous look that I took a step back. But in a second, the look was gone and replaced by one of neutrality. She turned the volume down by one or two bars but I noticed with slight annoyance that she didn't take off her headphones.

The little pony squeaked in fear before seeing that it was us two who had found him. "Oh, thank goodness! I thought it was one of the scary, bigger ponies from the career districts! Where's Twilight?" I don't know why, but I found his accent adorable.
"I don't know..." Rarity looked back to see the pink mare from 9 bouncing around the stallion from 11 in dizzying circles. "I thought I saw her head off towards the lake, but I'm not sure. Oh dear, this is bad."
"Well, let's go and find-" a snap of a twig behind me caused all three of us to spin around. Rarity hovered her sword and the sword she had gotten from the mare that she had killed a few moments earlier. I prepared to strike out with my hooves, and Pip hid behind me.

And despite the fact I tried was forced to watch this sight
Movies of each act that I performed on earth
They recorded every fact that I had done since birth
Each time I hurt a person or each time that I stole
When I started cursing or turned someone to the cold
When I ignored a beggar's hand or made a small child cry
Each time I failed to make a stand and each time that I'd lie
The times I cheated on my wife or told an ethnic joke
The mistakes I made in life were enough to make me choke
But when they saw my tears they told me to return
To alleviate my fears and for me to start to learn
When I awoke in bed my sheets were soaking wet
But I remembered what they said you must repay your debt
So if you see a change in me don't ask the reason why
For you may also see if you should dream you die

(Attributed to Machio the Pious)
After all was said and done, the Ruination (predictably) left very little for the historians to work with. The endless theories proposed by scholars would be debated for all time; Vaun Brenns supposition of a supernatural genesis to the wars of the last century was almost immediately contested by the more rational empiricism of Grigor Maldun, who argued that the main causes of the conflict were the ever-present demand for heavy elements and the latent imperialism of a newly industrialized and nationalistic culture. Vaun Brenns bulldog, the stalwart (and stubborn) Ernest Crimbelin, attacked Vaun Brenn and his supporters, postulating that the advent of the Immortals suggested, nay, proved inviolably that The Ruination was nothing less than a crusade, a mandate from God. This caused an uproar among the more conservative Maldunites, who cried out aga

A few weeks later…
The sun rose silently and calmly into Talon and Rainbow Dash’s room where Dash snuggled against his chest and Talon was holding Dash close after an intense sexual experience last night. Ever since Talon proposed to her a couple of weeks ago, they have fallen deeper in love and were almost inseparable. They went everywhere and did everything together. It seemed like they were the perfect couple ready to get married. But Dash would hear something that would tear them apart and separate them forever.
Talon squinted his eyes as the sun gently rested over his eyes; causing him to groan; wishing the sun would go away for a couple more minutes. After fighting to stay asleep for a few minutes, he finally gave in and slowly opened his eyes where he was blinded by the sunlight. He put his hand of his eyes blocking out the sun and said, “Damn, that sun is bright. Ugh, maybe I should’ve put the blinds lower on the window.

Twilight and Jean took up defensive stances as the armoured guard dropped his friend, drawing his sword and brandishing it nervously. Twilight was scared for Max's life. With him in his severely weakened state and with her and Jean not only injured, but also lacking their hidden blades, the coming fight was going to be very difficult. An audible sigh came from behind her and Panadol stepped in between them all, creating an awkward silence as she carefully tiptoed through the nests.

The city was buzzing with talk of what had become known as 'the slums incident.' Twilight and Archangel were walking through the market, dressed in black hooded jumpers. The white hood and cloak that was used to be their disguise was now the only thing giving away their identity. Since they were taking some time off to recover, and owing to the fact that the spring festival had started and the city was in a state of peace, there wasn't much need for them to intervene in anything. Archangel was still walking with a limp, the injury he sustained to his hind leg healing slower than normal because he couldn't find the time to rest it. Since he and David were the least injured members of the team, they had taken it upon themselves to not only take care of the others, but to also train the four new recruits that had joined them, three ponies and one griffin. The one that Twilight was most surprised to see was a white Earth pony with green eyes and a silvery mane and tail. Not long before the

Technology has always played a crucial role in human history and has only grown more influential and intertwined with our daily lives as it progresses. However, as our past has proven, often some of our most incredible advancements have been born from or used to create conflict. The twentieth century saw countless examples of warfare and conflict leading to leaps in technology. Although one could list off the various weapons created in this time period, an interesting pattern emerged as the technology matured. Once purely destructive innovations became something more as we unlocked their constructive potential. Rockets and explosives formed the foundation for our space exploration programs, atomic weapons were soon reformed into energy providing reactors that illuminated our cities, and wireless networks designed for military communication evolved into the internet that we know today, among several oth

"Just as she promised, Luna stood her ground and refused to lower the moon. Faced with the collapse of the delicate order they had worked so hard to build, Celestia was forced to do the unthinkable. Unable to fully utilize of the elements of harmony by herself, she used a fraction of their power to imprison her sister in the moon, saving the world, but at a terrible cost. The harmonic bond between sun and moon was broken forever; now, the elements lie dormant, awaiting new bearers. In time, the darkness in Luna's heart will begin to wane, but with it, so will the sealing spell that holds her in the moon. In a thousand years, she will escape, weakened but still powerful, and the world can only hope that new ponies will be found who can wield the elements and save Luna from herself.
But Celestia's thoughts turn again to the present. It will be centuries before she can see her sister again, and for that, she blames herself. Surely she had seen th

Now the hour has come at last
The soft and fading light
Has crossed the west horizon
And has bidden us goodnight
And what a lovely night it is
To walk a moonlit field
To see the softer shades
That are by starlight now revealed
So why is it that now,
When all is quiet and at rest
When candles glow and all the world
Is at its very best
The ponies of Equestria
Should lock themselves away
To shun the moon and wait instead
For Sister's sunny day?

Am I so wrong to wish that they
Would see things like I do?
And am I so wrong to think

As my vision adjusted, I saw that it was in fact Twilight Sparkle, and she was prodding me with a stick. "Yoo-hoo... Octavia... wakey-wakey! We gotta go gather up some food!"
I slowly rose to my hooves, and Twilight pointed to the dirt below me. It was dusty and dry, and covered in tracks.
"Did somepony go through here?" I asked her.
"Nope! That was you rolling around all night. You were muttering something about roses." I blushed. I couldn't remember anything about last night's dream, but roses? I hadn't dreamed of Roseluck at all, hell, I hadn't even thought much about her since after the training incident.

Something shall remain,

A simple blue sky. Not a cloud to be seen, merely me and the sky... so deep, I could fall into it and it would blanket me with clear waters.
I hear a slight rustling next to me. Following instinct, I jump up and listen, only to see Desmond snoring next to me. I realize what was going on; we had been in the middle of the forest all night. I grab a pen and write him a short note, skipping off into the deep brush surrounding our clearing.

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
