I'll never forget the day I first saw her. Never.
I mean you're thinkin' to yourself 'How'd somepony like you end up with somepony like her? When did this whole shebang start?' Well, that's what I'm gonna tell ya. And it's not the sort of thing you'd expect.
Okay, so there I was one day - wanderin' down a street, not really doin' anything when suddenly I hear this quiet sound, just barely loud enough for my ears to pick up. Sounded kinda like one of them violin things but deeper. At the time I thought it was a kinda neat sound - might make for a good sample to use in my next mix - so I go follow it, right
A Canterlot HauntingThere is a phenomenon few know about, that graces the Canterlot Performance in the deep hours of night. The baritone performance of travelling stallions would cease, the crowd unleashing the required applause as the performers bow out with all the attempted grace such ponies can have. The murmur of small talk and criticism would simmer to nothingness, and as the cleaners swept through the aisles, cleared away the rubbish and ruin of the night, it would begin.A Canterlot Haunting8 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

A New Sound - C1Mornings were not Vinyl’s domain, that was a well known fact to everyone in her life. It could be argued that her job had made her this way, late nights and the bright lights of nightclubs had made her numb to the subtle, creeping advance of Celestia’s sun as it clambered over the distant rooftops to slip between her curtains.A New Sound - C14 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
However, despite her job being mostly to blame, there was one other, small reason that caused Vinyl to bury her head further in the pillow than usual this morning.

Mounting entries on her to-do list coupled with a draining amount of time in which to attend to them had made Octavia somewhat irritable. The night of the Gala was upon them, and she was expected to be in attendance with her ensemble in no less than an hour. As such, it was very much to her chagrin that she discovered Vinyl asleep on the bed, where she should have already begun changing into her outfit.
A burst of sharp jabs to the stomach remedied the situation, and Vinyl's bleary eyes were met with the sight of a rather indignant Octavia bearing down on her.
"Vinyl, are you asleep?!"

It was a average day in Pony Vile, there was going to be a storm today so Applejack was busy bucking as many apples as she could before the storm hit. Her brother Big Mac was with tacking Granny Smith to her appointment to check her blood pressure, meanwhile Rainbow Dash was busy filing up the left over holes in the sky, her last one was near Applejacks barn, but when she was finished and about to leave it started raining, she was to far from her house to make it back before it started poring so Applejack brought her inside the barn, but with Big Mac and Granny Smith in the doctors and AppleBloom was with Sco

All was quiet in the clear peaceful night as Luna's moon slowly moved across the sky, bathing everything in a cold light. Downwards from the sky sat the small town of Ponyville; all lights were off and an incredible calmness reigned the streets. Some party animals were still awake and were gathered in an underground basement, which was used as a night club. But there was another particular building that's more of our interest.
The library, which was made out of a tree housed a unique unicorn; one that would not be having a pleasant night. This unicorn was the one and only Twilight Sparkle, Celestia's most faithful student and protég

"Gah, goodness." VinylScratch muttered, sitting up in bed, slamming the snooze button, managing to knock the clock onto the floor in her morning clumsiness. Rolling her deep red eyes, she relaxed back into the bed, turning away from the bedside towards the person beside her. "Oi, Tavia. Time to wake up." She said, smiling as the cellist slowly also arose from sleep, yawning.
"It's not like you to wake up before me " Octavia mumbled, eyes still closed as she snuggled her head against the pillow.

"BIG MAC!" The filly yelped as she felt something heavy falling on her back. The impact made her legs give up and she ended up on the floor. She turned her head around to see what fell from the apple tree and she noticed something rainbow-colored. She looked at her brother, who had a very surprised expression on his face. Applejack asked, "Brother are these supposed to fall when applebucking?"
"Eenope," was the only answer the big red stallion could give his sister.

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.

Spike awoke from his slumber, stretching his arms high into the air and pushing himself up from his small bed. As he stood up, his mouth extended into a large yawn and his legs automatically directed him to the door to the main floor of the library. It had been the same routine for years, ever since Twilight and he had moved into Ponyville. However, as Spike pushed open the door, he noticed something odd; the light in the library had been turned on.
Usually, the whole library would be drenched in darkness as he would be the first one to wake. Spike turned his head to the clock that hung in his room. '5:28 AM'. Now Spike was very curious as t

Sadly, the perpetrator of the poking failed to notice this less than subtle body language indicator, and replied with a more fervent series of prods to more tender areas of Octavia's torso. She rolled back over to face her, now fully awake and even more irritated at how awake she was. Octavia found a pair of exuberant, ruby eyes glimmering from the twilit room

Rainbows Can Be Lonely Too

I held in a growl watching Fluttershy panic in fear as she tried another loop. That pegasus is such a scaredy pony. It had been just about the same thing for the past hour or so. I'd demonstrate the trick Fluttershy would try, she'd panic, fall down, and whimper how sorry she was for failing. She's a pony that you can't seem to stay mad at, but she could be really aggravating at times, though.
Seriously though, I shouldn't be complaining. I was the one that had taken a day off weather duty to spend some time with Fluttershy and teach her

The creature that was lurking in the sewers of Marehime was no more. I was on the way *home* constantly trying to avoid the main street; even if I knew that nopony would be outside during that late time. The stain of the sewers followed me like it would be a fellow companion, while I was walking through the alleys that did not smell any better. Pain spread all over my body, paying the tribute of the flask I have used before the fight.

The ornate palace room was elegant but simple, this one in particular was clearly decked out for something bigger than just a pony, with a massive four poster bed sitting certainly within.

All the objects in the room, including Celestia began to float about as if on their way to a new home.

No words can hurt me
You are my light
My sole candle
For your smile is all I need to
Carry you wherever
In my life I have faced it all
Carried burdens, endured hardships
Remained strong, held the tears inside
Never let you end up the same path
It's all I wanted
It shines through
I couldn't answer what went wrong
Nor do I want to hold you down, nevermore:
To help you shine brightest of all
I'd gladly give away my wings

Darkness was all around her. She would hardly be able to make out her front hooves, only catching the slightest outline of their shadowy form, and that was when they were placed directly in front of her eyes. Her room felt small, the walls expanding around her as she pulled the blankets further up her body so the fabric brushed lightly under her chin. But the snugness didn’t scare her quite as much, for at the moment she wasn’t alone.
Sitting in a small chair beside her was Spike. His claw was gently resting on her hoof as he sang at a low voice.

I showed up everypony again since I had almost a years experience on them, but was still treated as if I broke all the records for the worst possible trainee ever. After our drills we were dismissed since there was some sort of event going on in the palace and all the guards were needed at their posts.
