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.
Trixie's head snapped up and he

Spike the "Hero"
The Crystal Empire was slowly becoming engulfed in a mass of threatening, black clouds; dark as the deadliest of storms. Screams could be heard all around as the crystal ponies began to panic. Up in the tallest tower in the city, Twilight found herself trapped within the confines of a black-crystal prison, the gems risen up from the ground, blocking any means of escape for the lavender unicorn. Just outside, Spike started to feel nervous. His eyes darted from side to side, his feet moved up and down like two, small pistons.
Twilight started to scramble within the crystal-walled trap, looking for the Crystal Heart with a set of panicked eyes.
"The heart? Where's the Crystal..." she started, voice q

Zips around with speed and flair.
Spins a web, any size,
Catches Changelings just like flies.
Here comes the Spider-Mare.
Is she strong? Listen bud,
She's got rainbow-powered blood.
When there's trouble, never dread,
Just take a look overhead.
There goes the Spider-Mare.
In the chill of the night,
When trouble's at its prime,
Like a streak of light,
She arrives just in time!
Friendly neighborhood Spider-Mare.
With wealth and fame, she gets bored,
Action is her reward.
To her, life is a great big bang up,
Whenever there's a hang up,
You'll find the Spider-Mare!

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 to who would be in the library at this time of day as he wasn't late for his daily routine either! Descending down the steps to the second floor of the library, his eyes slowly caught a glimpse of Twilight, who had her chin resting lazily on the circular table and her mouth lowered into a frown.
"Twilight? What're you doing up so early?" Spike asked.

CHAPTER 1: Andromeda's discovery
Scattered pages and dusty old books filled the study in a cluttered mess as Andromeda Sparkle slept among the debris of her own handiwork. Unconscious after a long night of work, her mind only left dreamland when the amber beams of the rising sun shone on her face. With a groan, she slowly rose to her feet, heavy eyelids still drooping. Various loose documents clung to her face as she stood, unnoticed by her until their delicate forms slipped from her lavender cheeks and fluttered towards the blanket of weathered volumes that lay on the floor around her. Once the blur of sleep had finally faded, she turned to see the silhouette of her mom standing against the wall across the room, following a disarrayed chain of manuscripts as if casually searching for survivors.
Twilight Sparkle hadn’t turned the corner yet, but once she did, the purple mare wouldn’t be able to recognize the room. Andromeda’s expression burned from embarrassm

The area was dark, covered in silver mist. Shades of gray mingled with the black atmosphere. The ground was hard. It felt like marble. Not a single tree, blade of grass, flower, or any type of greenery could be seen. Neither were there any houses, town signs, even corners of something to lean or lay back on. This was not something found in the average map. It seemed endless like a desert… or a void.
As for the sky—if there was a sky in this place—it was hard to tell whether it was day or night; the same dilemma could be said on which way was north or south, east or west. No sun, no moon, no stars, no streetlight, no lantern, no fireflies, no house light shone to show whatever direction anypony was taking.
But all of this mattered little in comparison to the horror chasing Fluttershy.
The pale gold Pegasus with the long, light pink mane and tail, moderately cyan eyes, and cutie mark of three butterflies – bodies in the same color as the eyes, and wi

“Wait a second, that’s it! I Understand now! I know how to fix the spell!” Twilight Sparkle and her friends made their way back to the Library. There she opened the spell book of Star Swirl the Bearded and began to rewrite the spell. “From all of us together. Together we are friends. With the marks of our destinies made one there is magic without end.” The very moment Twilight placed to period her Element of Magic glowed activating all of the other elements. The element shot beams of magic at Twilight whose element shot similar beams at the others. All six were surrounded by their own sphere of light. Spike saw the light from outside and burst into the library only to find six scorch marks in the shapes of the girls’ Cutie Marks.
“This is Star Swirl’s secret masterpiece? A vaporize everypony in the room including yourself spell?” Spike said as he began to panic. “What am I going to tell their

Twilight bolted from the library, her horn pulling the door closed behind her.
As she ran straight toward Applejack's farm, her thoughts were racing. What went wrong? Was it another attack? A landslide? Did somepony die...again?
Spike was clinging to her neck for dear life, as worry overtook the young unicorn.
Eventually, the two arrived near Sweet Apple Acres, and Twilight slowed to a crawl.
On both sides of the path, where there were once dozens of Apple Trees, now stood nothing but tall black pillars.
The fence that once ran along either side of the long dirt road was now nowhere to be seen, and the ground was covered in ashes.
Twilight was speechless. There were no words to say. No words she could say. As far as she could see, there wasn't a single survivor, the entire orchard was incinerated. Her best friend's business and livelihood was destroyed, overnight.
Why was she here?

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.

Lee's Second Chance - Prologue
I stared into Clem's eyes as tears flowed down her cheeks. I was filled with sadness that I'd never be able to see her smile again but, within that sadness I felt a glimmer of hope. Hope that she would be able to grow older and live happily with Christa and Omid as her guardians. I just wished that I would've been able to spend more time with her. I wish I could've just been able to just see her off safely.
It was funny to me. I went to such lengths to protect this little girl. I didn't even know her last name, but despite the circumstances she became my daughter. She fulfilled my wish of having a family… Even if my wife was out of the equation, I was still happy to have known the feeling of having a daughter; to pass on knowledge to her, to spend time with her… to cherish her.
I found my voice and said to her with my last breath, "I'll miss you." She stared at me with her large eyes and slowly replied, "Me too…" Clementine stood up holdi

It was nightfall, in the land of Lacrimis, a land so very far away from the land of Equestria. A land in such continual downpours and twinkling snowstorms, it magically remains hidden in mirages from any seeing-eye from space.
Today, a bright and positive filly pegasus named Holly Sunlight was on a school trip, which came from Equestria. Holly was not alone, her class was with her, but even if they were not. Holly never feels alone, she makes friends where-ever she goes and she stays friendly. Always keeps her cute smile, even if unaware of her own stubbornness.
Among her classmates / friends was navy-coloured Pegasus named Price Sparkle. He too is very positive, Price makes sure his friends stay close and well.
This school trip is the fourth international planned holiday, which has now declared the land of Lacrimis: safe. It had been five years since the planet threatening war of the Corrupt Heroes had seemingly ended.

The door shut behind me as I began to make my way back to Ponyville. It was gonna take quite a bit of time to get there, since Fluttershy lives all the way outside of town and by the Everfree Forest. Which never really made any sense to me, since she’s so afraid of how animals can take care of themselves, and all the different species and all that crazy stuff; yet she lives no more than a good ten minute trot away from it! Like is this filly loco in the coco? For me of course I’d just giggle and chortle it up in the ghostie’s face and go all Pinkie Dianne style, but Fluttershy is too much of a scaredy cat to face her fears.
But, I will be staying with her for who knows how long…I can totally teach her how to take care of them! Oh wow it’ll be so much fun to teach her. At first she’ll probably be all ‘Oh…I don’t know Pinkie. I think I take care of them

The Rain-Bow Incident
All was quiet and calm in the town of Ponyville. The skies were sunny, blue and cloudless. Like the top shell of a robin's egg encased the small town. The park was bustling with life. Ponies of all species and backgrounds were walking, talking, playing, anything and everything that would be expected on a sunny afternoon.
All of a sudden, a pony's head, blue as the sky above it, poked up from within a bush with a pair of nervous, scarlet eyes that gave the area a quick scan. Just as quickly as it appeared, the head vanished back into the safety of the bush.
Rainbow Dash could feel herself shivering. There she was, in the middle of the park, several ponies walking around that would be able to see her in plain view had she stepped out of her designated hiding spot-inside a thick bush that was pushed up against an oak tree.

"Okay, so I'll put the hydra card here. My timber wolf card here. Hm...where should I put my fairy card?" Twilight put her hoof to her chin as she thought, looking down at the flat piece of cardboard showing the image of a fairy (what looked like a tiny pegasus with a flowing blonde mane and crystal-clear gown). It was one of the many cards Twilight, as well as three-fourths of Ponyville, collected as a part of the "Creatures of the Everfree" card series-the latest collector's fad to hit Equestria.
"Ah-hah! Right here!" Twilight thought in triumph, sliding the fairy card into an empty slot, "Gotta be organized for when I show you to my friends, just as soon as I finish my collection."
