'Twas Hearth's Warming Eve
And under the moon
Not a pony was stirring
Not an owl, not a loon
Foals' stockings were hung
On the mantle with pride
In hopes that best pony
Soon there would arrive
They slept in their beds
All those dear little fillies
Dreaming cookies and cupcakes
And donuts with filling
When up on the rooftop
I heard something quite swoopy
As if AJ's sister
Were there loop-de-hooping
I arose from my bed
And donned my wool stockings
(For I couldn't be naked
If guests were a' knocking!)
I slunk down the stairs
And to my great surprise
Was greeted by coal dust
And a pair of blue eyes
"Shhh!" said the soot
Covered pony below me
"We don't want to wake
all these nice sleeping ponies!"
Her scaly companion
Showed expression quite vacant
But she thought I was sleeping
So I decided to fake it
As light as a pegasus
And as quiet as a mouse
I descended the stairs
To watch this guest in my house
She pulled out a bag
And I knew then for sure
She had snuck in to rob us
And leave us all p

It was going to be a perfectly normal day for Pinkie Pie; in other words, it was going to be anything but normal. Today was simply going to be a little freakier than normal.
She was happily bouncing towards Sweet Apple Acres, wondering what Applejack was doing. Hopefully nothing that was too much work, that would be boring! Although maybe she could make it less so... or maybe she could turn Applejack's work into a game! That would be so much fun! Of course, if Applejack wasn't doing anything, then she could have even more fun! But even if she didn't want to do anything with Pinkie, then maybe she could have an adventure with Apple Bloom and her friends! Oh that would be so much- twitchy tail!
Pinkie stopped. Something was about to fall, so she had to get out of the way before-
The source of the voice was right above Pinkie, so she ran out of the way just as something big, brown, fuzzy, and vaguely Draconian, with a mass of purple hair fell where she had

Time passed by. Nopony has heard of Trixie the entire day, assuming she has ran far away already. But the ponies, other than the ones that knew of Trixie's involvement, celebrate the end of the Second Great Blizzard that never got its chance to reach its full potential. Many went home to their own towns after they were able to, though they managed to make contact with different ponies from other reaches of Equestria and make new friends. The ponies that did stay, celebrate the entire day. The Mane Six and Spectrum Brush were the highlight of the day, being the heroines and hero that they are. Yet Brush was not entirely there with his mind in the party, being more focused on spending some time with his parents, who'm he hasn't seen for years.

"...and that, Spike, is the official meaning of life," said Twilight Sparkle as they walked along one of Ponyville's roads.
"Whoa, Twilight," said Spike, his voice laced with awe. "Really?"
"Really really!" said Twilight, smiling with pride. "At least, as applied to bunnies. Ponies and dragons are a teensy bit more complicated, so our answers will take me a lot longer to come up with. Probably years!"
"Well, I'll help you find them however I can." Spike chuckled. "Though somehow, I don't think Angel will be all that pleased with your findings..."
"Oh, wow, good point. Well, maybe Fluttershy can talk him dow-" Twilight paused, thought about the possibility for a few seconds, then said, "You know what, you're right. Let's just not tell him. He seems to have fun with his life--if all of a sudden we tell him that he actually has no true free w

A dramatic love story starring Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy
The day had begun like any other before it for Fluttershy. That is until she got a wonderful surprise visit from a certain special somepony.
Her rooster Filibuster had made it his mission that Fluttershy would greet the day as per usual along with the rising sun. After rubbing the waning memories of her dreams from her eyes she drifted down to her kitchen to start simmering a pot of alfalfa soup. As she carefully added the savory and basil into the pot she realized she decided to try something a little more bold that morning; so she indulged herself with a single sprinkle of nutmeg for a bit of extra spike.
Fluttershy turned the burner to low so it could simmer while she tended to her pet chickens in the yard. By the time she reached the coup with the feedbag resting on her back Filibuster was already strutting about the pen. He seemed to be putting on a show for

The soft prodding of a hoof on her side slowly pulled Twilight out of her slumber. She was awake and she was not happy about it. She waved off the offending pony and rolled over.
A soft and comfortably familiar voice whispered softly into her ear, "Come on, Twilight. Time to get up, it's your big day!"
Big day or not, Twilight's head was pounding, her body was aching and her eyes refused to open. She felt like an absolute train wreck. She rolled over and pulled her covers over her head. Maybe the intruder would go away if she ignored them.
"I thought you'd be excited! What's wrong with- Oh, I see..."
Whoever it was, they fell silent as the clopping of hooves reached Twilight's ears, fading off into another room. A couple minutes later, they returned, grabbed one of Twilight's forelegs and pulled her off of her vastly over-sized bed, causing her to land roughly on her hooves. Leaning against her waker, she felt herself being guided somewhere. Where didn't exactly matter, as long as she

A nightmare, that had to be it! She wasn't really pacing a trench into the tile floors of the hospital's ER waiting room. Pinkie hadn't really collapsed in Sugar Cube corner half an hour ago. She was tossing about in her bed crying just as much she was in her dream. Her horrible, horrible, horrible dream. That had to be it. In a few minutes she would wake up, run downstairs, and hug the daylights out of Angel Bunny until she calmed down. This was nothing more than a really really bad-
Fluttershy leapt at the voice behind her "Is she going to be okay?!"
But it was not nurse Redheart like she thought. The pony she had grabbed was Mrs. Cake, and she was crying almost as much as Fluttershy.
"I was just about to ask you that dearie." Ignoring her own tears, she pulled a hanker chief from her saddlebag and fruitlessly dabbed

Last night had rained more than I expected. I remember going upstairs after my friends had left me and I laying down on my bed, crying until I'd run out of the energy to do so. Most of that time was spent looking out of my bedroom window, watching the raindrops falling, trickling down the glass like the water that tickled my cheeks, and I found some solace in that. It meant that I didn't have to weep alone, like the sky itself was mourning for my loss along side me.
I sighed and shook my head.
What am I even thinking? Am I even listening to myself? My friends don't want to leave me, nor have they stopped caring about me, or loving me. Our bonds were deeper than anything we could ever will away. We're the Elements of Harmony

Franz turned on his laptop. School had not gone all that well today, especially in algebra class, when the teacher displayed his failed test to the entire class. Fortunately, his parents had no idea, and Franz planned to keep it that way. But he was worried that they might find out somehow. To forget his real-life problems, at least for the time being, he decided he would escape to the world of his favorite game, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team. Since his DS was being repaired and he had no GBA, the only way he could play the game was, of course, on an emulator.
This had its advantages, Franz reflected. It made things a lot easier when he was recording his Let's Plays, and he could download all sorts of save states, hacks, and patches to heighten the experience. For instance, he had just downloaded a patch enabling him to play as his favorite Pokémon, Arcanine.
Franz also tried to remember the last time he had let his own Arcan

It's been so long since we've seen you! You need to visit soon! Anyway back to the report thingy.
It's super duper awful and sad and hard when that one thing you love doing the most in the whole wide world becomes dangerous to you! It can be super easy to lose yourself in all the sticky sadness and yuck, and you just want to give up on everything and sit around all sad.
But I learned that even when everything feels all grey and the party looks like it's over before nine o'clock you should always remember that there are still super duper awesome friends who love you forever and are always ready to hold a hoof out to pick you up out of the sticky grey yuck!
Even when your world is upside down, it's important to remember your friends because they'll always be there for you, and you should always be ready to do the same for them even when they're all the way in Canterlot like you are! An

Before the sun had risen, Daemon started to stir from his sleep slightly because there was some kind of racket coming from downstairs. Daemon assumed that it was Desdemona who just couldn’t wait any longer and was getting ready to leave for the chocolate factory with Fluttershy. Feeling that there was nothing for him to do today he decided to drift back to slumberland and spend the day loafing around the house. A few hours later however, Daemon heard breathing by him and opened his eyes to see who it could possibly be. Daemon was surprised to see Fluttershy staring back at him affectionately. She had never looked at him like this before and it was starting to creep Daemon out. “What are you still doing here? Weren’t you going with D.Monica to see how chocolate was made?” Daemon asked, still half asleep.
“Oh, um... she, uh , said that I could stay with you while she did that. She didn’t want us

It was very early in the morning when Daemon was awoken. Flara shook him gently to rouse him from his sleep. Daemon groaned and rubbed his head as he sat up.
“Ugh... what time is it?”, the groggy stallion asked.
“About three o’ clock.”.
“IN THE MORNING?! Come on! Give me a break! I’m going back to sleep.”, Daemon shouted, pulling the covers over his head and flopping back down frustrated. Flara used her magic and yanked the covers off him and threw them to the opposite side of the room. Daemon gave a whiny moan and curled up even more, refusing to move.
“Get up Daemon! We don’t have time for this! This is our only window of opportunity to leave!”.
“Argh! Alright, alright! I’m getting up! Damn Lightmare rules...”, Daemon grumbled as he got out of bed.

“Does this mean you aren’t going to kill me, or whatever it is ghosts do?” Daemon asked, back against the wall and his eyes still wide.

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?

The political views expressed by Twilight Sparkle in this chapter were chosen based on her personality and actions throughout Seasons 1 & 2. Said philosophies are independent of the views of the author and how certain views may or may not match his own in some respects is mere coincidence. In essence, this chapter is not a political statement, it is Twilight being Twilight.

Twilight sighed as she felt the last of the tension that had been building between her wings release. Writing to her friends had been oddly therapeutic; it was almost like she was writing to Celestia again. While her mind was still preoccupied with thoughts of Spike’s words, she knew that he was in good hooves, and putting her feelings into writing put her almost at ease. She slurped a bit of soup from a gem-encrusted spoon and put the finishing touches on her fifth, and final, letter with the loopy calligraphy of her sign

I've been sitting here for what, two hours now?
I don't know why I thought I should come here so early. She asked me to show up shortly after sundown, but judging by the fulvous tones of natural lighting that fell in through the pane glass windows, I could tell that the sun was only now ebbing on the horizon. I suppose, by some nervous logic of mine, I figured that if I arrived here sooner I would somehow be privy to a quicker understanding of the situationinto what exactly was going on here.
Well, that was silly of me.
I mean, it's all so strange. She has never summoned me like this before. Why here, why now, and why the Royal Palace? I serious
