A Final DuetA Final Duet3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My dear Vinyl, who could have foreseen
my dear friend, how long has it been
It seemed an eternity since I've seen your face
so leaving the train I had a quick pace
I went to our house, nopony was there
I peered inside, but found it was bare
I wondered then, what could have occurred
you leaving town just seemed so absurd
I searched high and ever so low
wondering still, where did you go
I asked around, nopony talked
with sad faces, away they walked
I didn't Know, I wondered why
what had I said to make them cry
Suddenly I heard a tune I knew
I heard it before while I lived with you
I saw a glimmer, a spark of hope
at the top of a grassy slope
It came from there, without a doubt
the song I heard, the town throughout
The sound you played, it beckoned to me
I followed it gladly, filled with glee
But as I reached the top of this hill
my happiness had all but it's fill
Sadness now came in roaring seas

When you first appeared on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you were but an animation error who was on-screen for a few seconds. You were meaningless. But the bronies thought differently. They gave you a job. They gave you a name, a personality, and love. They nurtured you and cared for you.
From the moment you had your first speaking line, the fans squealed. They gave you muffins. They gave you fanfictions. Eventually, they gave you a family: a loving husband, and two beautiful fillies.
Lauren Faust took notice of the brony commitment to you, and she gave you the character model, forever. And now, in The Last Roundup, they have given you a voice. They came to the brony community, and observed what we had done with your character: the funny, clutzy, but good-hearted mare who loved helping ponies out. And they made you canon.
From an animation error to a canon character, we've followed you all the way. Enjoy your special day. We love you, Derpy Hooves.
The NeverFree PrincessThe NeverFree Princess3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In the land of Equestria, long ago
there were two royal sisters, of that you know
One brought the night, the other the day
But one other princess was hidden away
One so sad, with a broken heart
for in this world she had no part
One who had the gift of will
but nopony needed her still
For ponies ruled the Equestrian land
and setting it free was never planned
So from the castle, one day she fled
ponies watching her fly overhead
She felt so useless, so unneeded
her sorrow ignored, so unheeded
She flew to the south, nopony was there
the land had no will, leaving it bare
She poured her magic into the earth
she saw it all happen, her magic give birth
Birth to a place where all was free
from the weather to the growth of a tree
She brought some ponies to show them her land
they stayed a while, finding it grand
But soon they learned the darker side
of the shadows and what they hide
The creatures that lurked behind the bend
were the kind y

pertaining to a vigil of majesty told of in transcendent scriptures. Whereupon this occurrence,
tales of dissent fall on deaf ears in the midst of these echoes of future yore,
echoes of the flutter of the wings of memory carrying a single clover of fortune.
And thus the Alicorn shall speak, with a voice know by that memory, and bring our peace,
to be the kindle of a spirit in our hearts, the same as was borne in our journey to this place
where the whispering winds blow. And this journey shall continue as we spread the wings

Smile, if only for me...Smile, if only for me...3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Through the good and the bad
you were always happy, never sad
Through each day you'd smile and laugh
brightening the life of all in your path
But when you died and the world grew cold
I heard you whisper from Death's dark hold
"Just keep smiling, if only for me"
"If nothing else, cause then you'll see"
"The world around you is always in need"
"but give it a smile and it will be freed"
"Freed from the chains that bind it down"
"Freed from the hate that makes us all frown"
"Freed from the sorrow that darkens your day"
"so that our friendship can wash it away"
"Even now, when you feel down"
"and the world makes you frown"
"I'll be here, right with you"
"to make your smile shine like new"
That's what I heard and it rang in my head
as i raced to your house to find you dead
As I sat with you, crying in pain
Some of my tears, they fell on your mane
And as they touched, what did I see
I saw you get up and smile at me
You told me to smile, if only for you
And the reason why I already knew

Spike walked in and looked around, Rarity was at the back of the shop working as he suspected.
"Oh hello dear, what can I do for you?" she asked though never taking her eyes from the work before her.
Spike honestly had not planed for this. Usually when he was at Rarity's shop he had a good reason to cover for him, but this time he really was just there to see the beautiful white mare.
Spike thought for a moment. "Uh, Rarity?" . Rarity stopped what she she doing when she heard the small dragons voice.
Rarity turned around "oh!, Spike. I had no idea it was you. can I get you something?"

Spike's Rainbow Dash (Chapter Two)Spike's Rainbow Dash (Chapter Two)3 years ago in Romance More Like This
How does one continue a story like this? Ponyville's citizens enjoyed yet another day filled with serenity and uninterrupted harmony? Well, that's definitely not true. Sure, everypony desired to remain at peace within the very bounds of their refuge, but today wasn't particularly the day to depend on such expectations. Why? To put it simply: things went down. Big things.
The obvious reason as to why Ponyville would not experience an easygoing pass of the day certainly weighed upon two individuals. A baby dragon and an adult Pegasus, both maturing at equally progressive rates, were the direct cause for the future lack of understood coherence. Because these big things were going to lead to quite a ruckus. Discordance and incoordination would soon overwhelm the days to come, and I must be forthright in confirming the hilarity of it all.
Spike and Rainbow Dash were friends. That's already been agreed upon. Though it was this friendship that rocked Equestria like no other. Forget Nightmare

A certain pegasus flew back into Ponyville to find the entire town completely deserted. She flew all around, obviously checking the homes of her friends. Twilight’s Golden Oaks Library was all books and no ponies, every dessert in Sugarcube Corner was left untouched by Pinkie Pie, Sweet Apple Acres had no work of Applejack’s done, the Carousel Boutique had no Rarity for all those dresses, and Fluttershy’s cottage didn’t have a single living thing even living there.
Once Rainbow Dash checked everywhere else, she did find one caped figure standing in front of the town square. Next to the figure was a life sized statue of Rainbow Dash, but it was wearing a helmet, a red cape with a golden zipper, red strap on and a cloud making a yellow lightning bolt on it, and four golden gauntlets with tiny white wings for each hoof of the statue. The helmet and gauntlets were rainbow colored and had golden coverings to assure they were made of metal.
Once she flew close enough,

Spring was in full swing for the land of Equestria. Throughout the town of Ponyville, All of the citizens were enjoying the beautiful weather. Whether it was from working in the fields to relaxing at the park, they all basked in the warmth of Princess Celestia's sun. At Sweet Apple Acres, it was just another day of bucking apples from the many trees that covered the farm. Near the giant red barn, an apple tree shook and its apples fell from it into a yellow bucket. An orange mare with golden yellow hair, a brown Stetson hat, and emerald green eyes stood with a tired, but proud look smiled at the full bucket. The orange mare, Applejack, took the bucket and made her way out of the orchards. She made her way into the barn, where many more buckets of apples laid there scattered. She placed the bucket amongst one of the few empty spaced, and made her way out. She

It all happened so fast.
She just... dropped. Fainted, and collapsed. I grabbed her, cried for help... eventually somepony heard me and came, then we were taken to the Hospital.
Terror wracked my body, I felt sick, overcome with fear. I didn’t know what would happen to her; I just didn’t know, and I was scared. I felt like throwing up, my stomach in tight knots, refusing to loosen.
Suddenly, the doors to the front of the hospital had flown open loudly, startling me, and in came the one pony I admired more than anyone.
Word travels fast in small towns like Ponyville; Rainbow Dash travels even faster. She came up to me, a knowing look in her eyes, and just sat next to me. She seemed worried, though I’m sure most of the worry was for me, not the pony I was scared for. Dash put her hoof on my shoulder, I looked up. She just stared at me and whispered,
“It’ll be okay.”
I wasn’t so sure I could believe Dash, but I nodded anyway a

To you Cruel world, friends and all,
I say goodbye, as now I fall.
You've shown me pain, sadness and fear.
It cut me deep, bled out my cheer.
But still I laughed, as though to hide,
The gaping hole, my heart reside.
I wore a mask of borrowed cheer
to hide behind, to cover my fear
For I thought, I hoped, a prayer
that once I'll be, a happy mare.
But so it is not and never shall be.
The impossible wish, crushed within me
Ground to dust, from hooves to head.
It pours on out through tears I shed.
I can't go on, this pain I hide,
I've given up, can't keep inside.
So now I fall, and now I die
For though I laugh, Inside I cry...

As the Wheel Turns
Snips and Snails were dripping sweat as they struggled to drag along the heavy wooden cart that dug into the ground. The cart plowed up the dirt and left a sizable trench in its wake. They looked at one another, tired and worn out from pulling the new tyrant of ponyville to the edge of the forcefield. They stopped for a moment to take a quick break. As soon as they had stopped, a glowing red whip snapped at their backsides from mid-air.
"Pull you fools!" the whip snapped it at them twice more. "Somepony set off the magic forcefield and Trixie intends to punish them!" shouted Trixie as she prepared to whip her subjects once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.

You muttered to yourself as you sat up in bed, groggily. Your hair was ruffled and you could personally care less.Though the fact was true, there was one thing you did care about. What day of week it was. You had a natural setting in your mind to wake yourself up around when you set your alarm clock to go off. Wait- your alarm clock didn't go off. What time was it? 7:05 A.M, February 25th, 2013. School canceled due to unexpected snow storm. Your digital calendar read.
You stood up and yawned, a small smile stretching across your face. No school today. Sweet. Just to be sure, you peeked out your window and surely enough, snow was everywhere. You hope your cat is okay...Yeah, you let her in last night. With another yawn, you shuffled over to your laptop and cracked it open.

The party had been great, especially because it had been organized by the very best: Pinkie. But again, you drank too greedily and managed to get tipsy And that was putting it mildly. It's a good thing you were smart enough to leave before it would have gotten worse. Still, the music in the distance was very inviting, even to a starting headache such as yours. But you wouldn't go back, that wouldn't be a smart move. Like you were now, you might throw up by merely smelling the stuff.

Each of the three subspecies of Ponies had their capitals. The Unicorns had Canterlot, the Earth Ponies had Manehatten. The Pegasus had Cloudsdale. The cloud city was separate from the other two, however, as only Pegasus could actually live there, the plush clouds and altitudes only accessible by flight unless powerful, uncommon magic was used.
Because of the inaccessibility, other cloud cities made an effort to benefit from the contributions of the other ponies. They lowered the altitude of their cities, bringing the clouds closer to the ground and interacting with the ground bound ponies of Equestria. Fresh produce and intricate works of art and music were sought after by the Pegasus ponies over the years and the cities became multicultural which soon flourished. Perhaps the most famous of these cities was Las Pegasus.
The Pegasus that lived there mixed their cloud structures with the stone and brickwork of the other ponies and the city grew larger over time. It was a remarkable feat

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.

Thoughts on S3E5: Magic Duel
As always, spoilers and opinion abound.
Let's face it, everybody was looking forward to this episode pretty much entirely because of Trixie, and whether or not they handle her well is going to make or break the episode. It really doesn't help that there are a ton of different fan interpretations of the character; there's Woobie Trixie, Evil Trixie, Twilight Obsessed Trixie, etc. Obviously, they aren't going to be able to play all of those interpretations.
As for me? I think they handled her really well. The writers managed to engineer a situation where they could go wild with Evil Trixie, yet still ultimately treat her sympathetically while keeping everything consistent with what we know of her character. Whether or not you believe that Trixie was in the wrong in her debut episode, it's hard to not sympathize with her at least a little after seeing what happened to her as a result. She was a jerk
