"Lady Twilight Sparkle!"
That night had been dreamless for Twilight, almost mercifully so. It had allowed her a peaceful, uninterrupted rest. This morning, however, wasn't about to give her the same courtesy.
"Grmph... Who are you and what do you waaa- What in the name of-" Twilight unleashed an uncharacteristic string of obscenities as the unknown name-caller ripped open a pair of drapes, flooding the room with bright sunlight.
"Princess Luna may have ordered me to let you sleep in, but enough is enough, Lady Sparkle. You missed breakfast, you're late for your next appointment, and the Princess even raised the sun for you today!"
Twilight rolled over to glare at the clock on the wall; it was barely 9. This mare was beginning to get on her last nerve. "Fifteen hours ago I was in the hospital."
"A Princess does not make excuses, Lady Sparkle. If you are to be a Princess, you should begin acting like one immediately."
"Who are you again?"

#10) I know a brony who legally changed his name to that of a pony. What's up with that?
Answer: Some fans are really extreme when it comes to how much they like the show/fandom. Some love it so much that they're willing to do irrational things, one of which is changing your name legally to that of a pony. At that point, you're most likely taking things too far. I'm all for expressing yourself and feeling free to behave however you wish (as long as it doesn't impact on others), but the primary issue with the pony-name thing, apart from the inherent ridicule that'll arise from it, seems to be lasting appealing.
Consider that the show won't be around forever. Whether it lasts for another year or two, it's highly unlikely that you'll be watching new "Friendship is Magic" episodes in 2020. By that point, it's reasonable to assume that the fandom will have slowed down a heck of a lot. Logic suggests that when episodes stop being produced, interest in the show will dwindle; som

Five seconds? Five minutes? Five millennia?
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. She hoped it was a nice body, one with a soft mane and maybe some nice friends to go along with it. Oh! And a name! She remembered that she had had a name at one point. It was a pretty name too. She had liked her name! She wished she

In the royal day courtroom there stood many ponies of all shapes and sizes, ranging from bulky earth ponies to slight pegasi to frail Unicorns all the way to the giant mixture of the previous three races, an Alicorn. Celestia sat on top of a regal and rich purple pillow on the side of the court away from the large doors that gave entrance to it. Next to her stood the green coated day captain, his posture rigid and his face plastered with a seemingly permanent smirk. On the other side of Celestia was her technically former student Starswirl who now spent his days acting mainly as her adviser and her chief spell maker. The rest of the courtroom was filled with various ponies who stood in various positions, some off to the side to observe while others formed a long line that reached the back of the giant and o

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.

The Mystery of the Missing Mares

It was a warm and sunny midmorning, ponies of all sorts happily trotted along the cobblestone streets of the most magnificent city in the world. There was to be an extravagant gala later this evening and ponies from all over the world had come to attend it. After all, the richest and most famous ponies were all going to be there, especially the richest and most famous of them all; the one and only Princess Celestia. This was a party that was truly a must come for all.
"It's so wonderful to finally have you here, Princess Celestia."
"Please, Commander Chiton. The pleasure is all mine. I cannot wait until we arrive at the gala. I have no doubt it will be one to remember."
"I'm glad you're so enthused, Princess. I can't say the same for myself though. I've been having these odd dreams as of late, and I haven't been able to sleep very well. If there's anything I remember well from the oracles' teachings, i

Perched atop her balcony as per usual, Luna rolled her eyes before turning to face her sister, a little perturbed that her moment had been interrupted. Celestia couldn't read the annoyance on her sister's face and went right on to speaking with her now that she had Luna's attention, inadvertently ignoring her sister's mood.
"Your constellations were quite the marvel last night Luna."
The princess of the night sighed and closed her eyes, exhaustion beginning to set in to her body after having crept in the whole afternoon and night before, "Why thank you Celestia,"

Orchestrating young Luna's fall,
To darkness and corruption of her soul,
Possessed by both envy and hate,
Banishment was her final fate,
Her sister forced to pay this horrid toll.
These events are well known to all:
The Moon Princess's rise and fall,
A tragic tale and a warning as well
And yet there still is much unsaid
More of this story to be read
Of the time after Princess Luna fell
Luna now banished for all time,
Final victim of Nightmare's crime,
Celestia's warmed heart began to chill,
She knew that what she'd done was right,
Sending away Princess of Night,
Yet still this knowledge was a bitter pill.
And for days Celestia wept,
From when she woke to when she slept,
But she continued her appointed task,
She wished that she could change the past
But soon accepted this at last
And hid her grief beneath an aloof mask.
So came the day, so came the night,
The moon's dim glow, the bright sunlight,
And Celestia sat upon

Princess Luna lay on the balcony, staring at the moon she had just raised. Although she knew her nighttime was appreciated, still she felt darkness creep at the edges of her heart. It wasn't bitterness this time, no...she just felt so...alone. She sighed, lowering her eyes, trying to blink away the tears that began to form at her eyes.
Luna leapt to her hooves, turning. "Twilight Sparkle," she said, addressing the purple mare that stood before her. "We did not realise you were there. Is there something you need of us?" By long force of habit, she spoke in the royal plural, although she did not use the royal voice as she had at first.
"Not exactly," Twilight said, stepping onto the balcony with the princess. "Actually, three nights from now, my friends and I were going to hang out at Applejack's barn, and I was wondering if you might care to join us if you had the time?"

#49) I had a phase that lasted a few months in which I "enjoyed" the Rule 34 aspect of the brony fandom, mostly just clopping at night a few times a week and only to the R34. I started to grow out of this phase about a month or two back, and now I am completely grown out of it. The R34 no longer interests me and I've stopped clopping to it. I feel mostly relieved because of this shift, but when I look back on my clopping phase, I am dragged down by guilt and sadness and can't help feeling that I am a horrible, perverted person and the bane of the fandom.
Am I a horrible person for having liked the R34 and having been a clopper? This fandom means a lot to me and I don't want to think I'm one of its "bad apples".

What a head ache. It was as though Hero's head was being pierced by an iron spike. He rubbed his head, cringing in pain, as he sat up from his bed. Glancing out his window, he could see that he had been sleeping since the fight with Lord Vines. The moon was high and rested over storm clouds that had rolled in while Hero slept. But what happened? He couldn't recall anything after that freak of nature grabbed him with those fleshy tendrils. Maybe some fresh air would clear up this headache.
Hero groaned his way to the front door, his mane of brilliant stars a jungle of bedhead. He opened the fluffy gray cloud door and under a flash of lighting a cloaked mare rushed her head forward, planting a kiss filled with pent up emotion on Hero's lips. He pulled away from a stunned and now wide awake Hero. "Now be quiet and listen my hero." The deep blue mare, fluffed her wings, knocking rainwater out of her feathers.
