Part Two of Two
Pinkie Pie was grinning from ear to ear as she bounced excitedly in her room within Sugarcube Corner. Twilight Sparkle was taking her on a date. She had never been on a real date before, but it sounded super fun, especially since it was Twilight and she was such a great pony. Pinkie just couldn't wait.
Suddenly, Pinkie decided she was hungry. Her head bouncing from side to side, she left her room and went downstairs. She saw some tasty looking pink cupcakes resting on a tray on a table. She threw three of them in her mouth all at once and gulped them down with a smile. They were super delicious. Pinkie's whole body quivered as she enjoyed the amazing flavor.
"Enjoying yourself, Pinkie?" Mrs. Cake, who was standing nearby, asked with an awkward laugh as she watched the pink pony. Pinkie glanced at her.
"Yep, yep! These are super tasty!" Pinkie cheered, bouncing toward her caretaker.
"That's nice, dearie..." said the older mar

The cool fall air sent a breeze through Fluttershy's mane as she slowly walked through the streets of Ponyville. Winter would be here soon, the streets would be covered in the beautiful blanket of white snow that embraced it every year. This was always one of her favorite times of the year, when everything was quiet and calm, the soft chill giving the world a sort of serene beauty. Even though most animals would be hibernating for the winter leaving her without much work, she always spent her time simply admiring the beauty the landscapes had to offer.
She felt a constant sense of awe in the simple wonders of the world this time of year, the way the leaves would change colors from their luscious green to the beautiful harmony of reds, oranges and yellows. The air would almost always have a wonderful smell to it as somepony would have a small fire going, or perhaps would be wood roasting some new savory dish or even the simple crisp air that nature provided.
However, things we
3 Weeks Party - Part 2It was closing time for Sugar Cube Corner. Mrs. Cake was changing the sign on the door to 'closed' while her husband was finishing cleaning the last of the tables. "I'll go let Pinkamena know, dear" Mrs. Cake told her love as she went upstairs to Pinkie's room. They didn't have a foal of their own, and looked after Pinkie Pie as her parent figures. When she first appeared in Ponyville years ago, Pinkie was only a small pink filly and her mane was strait from sadness and the rain. The couple soon found out she had no family nearby, if any, and feeling sorry for her they decided to adopt her, at least until her parents could be found. She was such a sad pony back then.3 Weeks Party - Part 24 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"AH! No you didn't see anything we weren't doing that your imagining it there's nothing going on!" Pinkie yelled as her door swung open. The pink pony was holding the plush of Rainbow Dash which she quickly swung from her mouth to behind her back.

3 Weeks Party - Part 3“FINISHED!” yelled Pinkie Pie happily. It broke Rainbow out from her extensive thinking as she looked down her body. She was almost covered in bandages, most areas she was positive didn’t even need them, but Pinkie did them anyway. Including areas very close to her, personal, area. Rainbow was annoyed at herself for being taken away in thought when Pinkie's hooves were down there. Knowing her luck that's the closest she was going to get to Pinkie.3 Weeks Party - Part 34 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Well I'm happy for ya, doubt y'all be needing any real doctor when you’ve got Pinkie 'flimsy hooves' Pie helping ya out” Applejack said gleefully patting Pinkie Pie on the back, who was nervously giggling to herself.
“What are you talking about?” Dash replied. Unknown how long she was stuck in inner thought oblivious to her friends interactions around her. She looked at Pinkie Pie in the eyes who was still looking surprisingly shy and nervous for the fun lover she was.

It was decided that the wedding would be held the day after first snow fall, meaning the wedding would be held in two weeks' time. It didn't take long for the news of the wedding to be spread throughout Ponyville. Rarity had made a fuss about the suddenness of the date, but Rainbow explained that after her Wonderbolts audition she wanted to spend every possible moment with Fluttershy before she went off to her training. This seemed to pacify Rarity and Rainbow left for her audition the next morning.
For the small town of Ponyville weddings weren't that common despite the amount of relationships the town seemed to harbor. It seemed most ponies enjoyed the simple dating scene over making that final step of commitment, but whenever a couple did make that decision it was news the whole town heard about. You could be certain everypony who could show up was going to.
The moment Pinkie knew the wedding was confirmed she'd set in motion to prepare for it. She'd been going all around
Forever With The One You LoveTwilight rolled over in bed, the purple mare's body slowly stretching in her half-awake daze as she murmured gently to herself. As her eyes closed once more to enjoy those last few moments of blissful sleep, her forehooves dug into the bed sheets before bumping into something familiar. A wistful smile crossed her muzzle as she smiled, reaching forward with her muzzle as her nostrils began to sniff her favorite scent. Opening her eyes slowly, Twilight saw Trixie's half awake eyes staring back into hers as a sleepy smile crosses the blue unicorn's muzzle.Forever With The One You Love3 years ago in Drama More Like This
"Mmm, good morning, sleepyhead..." Trixie's usual defenses by now were dropped when around Twilight, but her voice still carried that slightly haughty tone to it at times. It wasn't intentional most the time for her, it's just that the magician unicorn had her stage persona so ingrained into her normal psyche. "It's about time you woke up..."
Twilight gave a slow smile as she reached out, her right hoof touching Trixie's face lightly as
Wishing On RainbowsI told her not to go; lots of ponies did. I told her it was dangerous, that most of us didn't know what lay beyond Equestria's borders. Such a journey was sure to be arduous, but she wouldn't listen to us, no matter how much we tried to talk her out of it.Wishing On Rainbows4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But, that's just like Rainbow. When she makes up her mind she's gonna do something, she's gonna do it, and ain't nopony's gonna stop her.
I remember how it all started. It was just a few days after the 'Iron Pony' competition she and I had. We never did decide on a winner. I accused her of cheating, while she made it clear our rules were not.
"You never said I couldn't use my wings!"
"I didn't think I needed to tell you to play fair!"
The two of us just got so caught up in the competition. If I knew it was going to lead to me never seeing her again, my best friend, I would have never let myself lose my cool.
But I didn't know, and now she's gone.

If the stubborn hare heard her, he didn't show it. Instead, he pointed towards Fluttershy's bridge. The yellow pegasus turned and smiled at the sight she saw.
Applejack stood on the small stone bridge, and once her eyes locked onto Fluttershy's, she ran down to her girlfriend. Applejack gives Fluttershy a hug and a kiss on her cheek. "Howdy there sugarcube, I was able to take off a little early today."
Fluttershy smiled and asked, "Does Big Macintosh mind that you're coming to see me?"
Applejack shifted her hat and said, "Yeah about that. The thing is, sugarcube, I haven't told my kin about us yet."
Fluttershy turned away, "I. I understand."
"Now hold on a second there." Applejack put a hoof on Fluttershy's shoulder, "

It was another peaceful day in the town of Ponyville. Princess Celestia's bright, majestic sun was beaming down on the peaceful townsfolk who were going about their daily business. The local fauna and flora were basking in the sun's natural warmth without a care in the world. Everybody was having a wonderful day.
"ACHOO!!!" Well, almost everyone.

The day of their private party had arrived as Rainbow Dash and Applejack headed towards Sugar Cube Corner. The obvious caterer for the event could be none other than Pinkie.
"I hope she made one of her awesome cakes!" Dash exclaimed excitedly, flying in small loops above the orange earth pony.
"Ah'm sure she did. She is Pinkie, after all." Applejack found herself looking forward to the party herself. Though it was only going to be a gathering of their closest friends, it still marked a significant moment for her and the pegasus flying around her. "And would'ya get down here already. Ah'd like to walk beside my mare, if ya don't mind."
Dash couldn't help but giggle. She had grown quite fond of the affectionate titles. "All right. I swear you're trying to make me an earth pony. Too bad you can't hit the skies with me."
The idea had come to AJ a few times to ask Twilight to use that flight spell on her, if only so she c

A lightning crack jolted Twilight awake, her eyes bolted open as she sat up and gasped. A film of cold sweat covered her face and back, which sent shivers down her spine. She panted hard, snapping her gaze from one side of the room to the other. It took several deep breaths to calm her down, repeating to herself that it was only a dream.
It was the third nightmare she had that night, and it was getting to the point where she didn't feel like sleeping anymore. She wiped her forehead and focused on the raging storm outside. The unrelenting maelstrom hammered away at Canterlot, rain pattering off the window of Luna's bedchamber.
She glanced down to her left and saw her sole comfort in an otherwise stressful world: Luna, the mare of her dreams The pony she could always count on to bring a smile to her face. The princess's presence instantly began to relax Twilight's heartbeat down to a more manageable level.

Why did I act like that?
Twilight couldn't help but feel terrible about last night. She shouldn't have treated Luna like she was Nightmare Moon; it was rude and totally out of line. She made it a personal mission to find Luna and ask for forgiveness. She had spent a few hours last night trying to find where the princess ran off to. After failing to locate her, Twilight remorsefully sulked back to her room. She spent a few minutes pacing across the room, going over their short conversation in her head.
Why am I so bothered by this? She asked herself. Sure, she was a little harsh, but it wasn't completely out of hand.
Twilight wasn't able to sleep very much. Whenever she closed her eyes, a pair of foggy silver eyes pierced the veil of her mind like a thorn. She tried thinking about other subjects, but those eyes would always come back before she even knew she was thinking about them. The more she analyzed the mar

Birds gently called out the sun's rise outside of the Apple home. Dash drifted back into consciousness as hooffalls drew near from the hall. She could smell a meal being cooked from somewhere downstairs. Breakfast in bed, she thought. Sounds great.
"Mmm, good morning, babe," the pegasus responded blissfully, hugging the mare between her and the wall beside the bed.
Dash slowly opened her drowsy eyes. Sure enough, the golden mane of her partner was before her. If it wasn't AJ entering the room, then...
"Well, mornin' to you too, Rainbow." Big Macintosh responded from the foot of the bed, a chuckle in his voice.
Dash immediately shot to attention, rolling off the bed with a loud thud as she hit the floor. "OH! Uh, Big Mac!" She tensed at the sight of the stallion. "Uh, I was just... sleeping over for the night." Her eyes must have been as wide as saucers.

Surprise PartyJust one last tree and this row will be done. Applejack lifted her rear legs and gave the apple tree a buck causing apples to fall into the buckets. She smiled as she looked over the orchard of her home, Sweet Apple Acres. There was still much more work to do, and the sun was about to set. 'I best not get myself too far behind,' Applejack thought. She gathered the few stray apples that missed the buckets and loaded the buckets onto the cart.Surprise Party4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Those buckets were heavy. It made her mad that her big brother, Big Macintosh, could carry three full buckets on his back, while she could only manage one at a time. 'Not today big brother.' She grunted in exertion and managed to get two buckets on her back. She strained to stand and walked slowly to the cart. She began to slow down due to the weight of the apples, so with gritted teeth she pushed herself harder. 'Come on Applejack, you ain't the most dependable of ponies for nothing.'

The balmy summer night settled around the old house. A gentle breeze blew through the rocky field and into the open window, playing with her mane gently. She stared out at the quiet surroundings of the farm house, then up to the clear star filled sky. The moon was out in its full glory once more, washing over everything with its soft night light.
Octavia let out a soft sigh as she moved from the window and back into her old room. The three beds lined up to give each enough space from the next, a small desk next to each of them, and dressers along the wall. It was a comfy abode for three foals and a home she hadn't rested in for a long while.
She could see the form of her pink younger sister sleeping soundly in her bed, tuckered out from an energetic day spent with her family. It really had been too long since they'd last spent such a fun time as a family. She'd missed the feeling; it was nice seeing her parents and getting to spend time with her hyper active young

The crowd cheered as the final words were spoken. With a quick movement of the hooves a sea of hats flew into the air. Music played loudly through the entire auditorium as hugs and cheers were spread far and wide. Some were crying, some were laughing, and some could only just smile broadly.
Fluttershy's hat sat, still adorned to her head. She let out a soft sigh. It was graduation day from Flight School. She had barely passed, her flying skills were nothing impressive, but they were enough that the school deemed her ready to face the world. But despite that, she couldn't feel happy.
The one pony she had hoped would be there cheering her on, that would be in the stands praising her for how much she had accomplished wasn't there. She hadn't heard a single word from Rainbow in over a year and she had given up hope that she would hear from the hero that had saved her from failing a long time ago.

She had arrived at the party at Rainbow Dash's cloud home later than the rest of her friends who had already been waiting somewhat impatiently for her.

"By Celestia's mane, this is heavy".
For Bon-Bon, today was just supposed to be a simple day. First, she would go get some sweets from Sugarcube Corner (she did love her sweets). Then, she would go to the Carousel Boutique to pick up the dress she was going to wear to the Grand Galloping Gala. After all that, she would then go have lunch with her best friend, Lyra. Then, she would go back home and bake herself some tasty cupcakes. However, thanks to a certain yellow filly with a red bow on her head, she was now carrying two saddlebags and a bucket that were filled to the brim with apples. She really did not want those apples (in fact, she hated apples), but Applebloom wouldn't have any of it. Thankfully, her older sister did let her have all the apples free of charge. Now, poor Bon-Bon felt like her back was going to give out at any moment.

Time moved painfully slow in Ponyville. The more Twilight thought about it, the more irritated she became. Eventually, she magically imploded the only clock in her library house for she no longer wished to be reminded of time. The incessant ticking, tick after tock, just reminded her how long she had been separated from Luna. She knew it was just an unnecessary stress, so she took care of it.
In roughly two days' time, Twilight had gone from quasi-competent Aura Bloom competitor to anti-social hermit, bent on sheltering in her house as if sunlight would make her transparent. Her friends knew she was emotionally distressed, but they were still clueless as to why. They all believed that she was still upset about her failure in the Aura Bloom; there was hardly any suspicion that she was aching on a much more profound level.

Celestia's sun shone brilliantly over the utopian city of Canterlot. A pair of blue jays chirped as one chased the other across the courtyard of royal palace, landing in a nearby tree. The springtime air brought with it the warmth and sunlight that all the vibrant flowers reveled in. A couple gardener ponies were seen planting new flowers along the walkway. A platoon of royal guards was marching down the walkway, their shift ending. The new shift of guards had already taken their place in their respective positions evenly amongst the courtyard.
Inside, Princess Celestia was busy running her queendom. Several ponies were lined up outside, eager to get inside to talk to the great Mare of the Sun. Most of them brought status reports of the several necessities required to keep a city so large running smoothly.
There was a noticeable difference inside the throne room; The Princess often glanced to her side only to see empty space

Applejack and Rainbow Dash continued to play in the large bales of hay set beneath the pegasus' home. Between the diving, jumping, and rolling, the dried grass had begun to unravel into a cushioned blanket over the ground.
Dash laughed. "Now who has the 'gutter-brain'?"
Earlier that day, Dash had helped Old Pony Whitaker by moving clouds over his land to provide shade while he worked the fields. Though it wasn't an official order for the weather team, she had felt charitable that morning, taking it into her own hooves to move the spare clouds his way. Never the one to let a favor go unpaid, and without bits to spare, the farmer gave Dash the only thing he had; hay. With no real use for the bales, she decided to have some foalish fun, inviting AJ to join in.
