Luna's Best Night EverIt was the night of the Grand Galloping Gala and Princess Luna was thoroughly flustered. She stood in front of her mirror, pouting at her own reflection. Celestia had gone to great lengths to set the evening up for her, lowering the sun early and helping her to raise the moon and coerce the stars out of hiding so she would have time to prepare herself. She had even taken the liberty of personally greeting every guest on her behalf so that Luna wouldn't have an excuse to escape from the party itself.Luna's Best Night Ever3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Luna adjusted her tiara and smoothed out the dress Celestia had picked out for her for the fifth time in as many minutes. She frowned a little at the puffy, lacy affair that now adorned her form, all ribbons and silk and crushed velvet with a large, elaborate skirt that made her feel uncomfortable about the size of her flank. When Celestia had told her no bit had been spared to prepare for the gala Luna had been shocked, even appalled by the flagrant misuse of the treasury to fund an event

Twilight Sparkle had never run so fast in her life--not that she had lived very long.
She ran across green hills and plains, leaving Canterlot Castle and its festivities behind her. She expected to become short of breath any second, but it never happened.
Soon she could see a house in the distance. As it drew closer, she could see a white unicorn looking out the second story window.
He didn't notice her. He was probably studying the castle guards from a distance again. He'd always told her that he wanted to be one someday.
She went into the house, up the stairs, and bolted through the door to his room.
Shining Armor quickly noticed her voice and looked behind himself. When he realized what the both of them were in for, he held out his hooves. "Twilight! Slow down!"
"Wha?... oh, no!"
She planted her own hooves to stop, but it was too late. She skidded and crashed into him with considerable force, the impact causi

The wind. I know it has several synonyms, some words having a tiny difference from the other: Gale, breeze, draft, storms, and so on. You know which one is which when you feel it, having experienced every kind of wind atleast once. But even when you think you've felt them all, you come to discover later in life that you only know a tiny portion of the whole existence. I am experiencing that right now: A wind which I've never felt before. It's incredible cold and different from any breeze I've ever felt moving over my skin, being the only wind that can frighten me.
Too many things have happened in a short time, turning my whole self into something new and cold as the winds that continue to blow over my paths.

Twilight and her five friends are transported during a botched spell, across dimensions to... Ponyville, Equestria? But not the same one that they knew. Sitting on a bench is Harpsy and Babar. The Doctoress avoids apples from an aspiring Applebuck. And in a library across town, six stallions join their forces as they try to decipher the appearance of filly look-alikes of themselves around Ponyville!

"OK I'm up Tiger Angel!" He yelled back. He opened the door to see the black and orange Pegasus standing there.
"About time. And just call me Angel" she said as they headed to the mess hall. When he walked over to the table where the rest of the squadron was, it was obvious by the looks on their faces Angel had given them the same treatment too.
"How do you like our squadron alarm clock?" Whiteblaze, the squadron commander asked.

Desolate, icy solitude. That was the fate awaiting all who were sentenced to imprisonment on the moon. Not everypony knew that, but then, not everypony would stop to ponder what sort of crimes were so extreme that banishment to such a place would be warranted.
But one pony knew all too well.
After all, she was still becoming accustomed to her dark, frigid prison and judgment of exile.
Time was starting to hold little meaning for Princess Luna. She could barely keep track of the hours anymore, now that her world was reduced to a dark void. Not even her beloved moon in which she dwelled illuminated the darkness for her, and any light she could generate with a simple spell remained centered on the tip of her horn. She was left with nothing but empty, cold shadows. Empty, cold shadows...and memories. Memories that pierced her heart and haunted her spirit.

Twilight was alone in her room. She sat beside the open suitcase. She wondered how she could have been so wrong. Her friends accepted what had happened in stride. They weren't exactly happy with the events that had transpired between her and the cream colored stallion, but they accepted it.
They insisted she come back to Ponyville. The others would understand just as they had. The worst she could expect to receive was a tongue lashing, and a lack of trust, but her friends would still hold dear to her, just as they always had.
So now Twilight sat packing her things away. She had made sure to put Owlicious in a cage before she did anything else. When she told Celestia the alicorn only smiled knowingly and wished her the best of luck. All her things had been placed in the suitcase.

"Good morning my dear (y/n)!!!" His demonic voice came from somewhere in your bedroom. You sat up in bed, mane messy, ears floppy and still half asleep. Discord was tormenting you...again. Every morning for the past two weeks he would wake you with that same line.
You looked around the room and as suspected, he had made himself invisible or was hiding under the bed...
'Why me?' You thought, 'out of all the ponies in Equestria why me?!?!' Reluctantly you got out of bed and made your way towards your dresser where you proceeded to brush your (f/c) mane and tail.
Once fully groomed you trotted downstairs where there was no doubt a chaotic surprise waiting for you.
And of course, you were right. The entire room had been turned upside down. Literally. The floor was on the ceiling and the ceiling was on the floor. Oddly enough the furniture remained in place and was now defying gravity.
You twitched your eye then screamed, "RRRRGH DISCORD!!!!!!!!!"

When we were praying for freedom

Has nothing changed?
Am I alive and trapped in the death
Or dead and lost my afterlife
Was I ever anything else
Than these crippling chains around my neck
They say time had forgotten our life
Yet the scars are still fresh in my heart
Can't I just leave it behind
Can't I just forget it all
Am I a ghost that's wandering the earth
I remember nothing more but pain
I saw the light once faded
Is there meaning to even try to escape

The shadowy alicorn landed in front of the steaming cave by the base of the volcano. Her wings folded against her side as she trotted closer, being careful not to slip on the mud and slick stones beneath her hooves. The air was filled with the stink of sulphur and the bubbling sound of pools of mud as they boiled in the oppressively hot and humid air. Taking as deep a breath as she dared of the stinking miasma she was surrounded by, she shouted into the cave as loudly as her prodigious voice would allow.
"Come forth Ille Qui Gubernat Monte Ignis- 'He Who Governs The Mountain's Fire!' I would speak with thee!"
She couldn't help but feel slightly proud that she was able to do this with breaking into a fit of coughing, considering the quality of the air. Of course no sooner had she thought this then a small cough escaped her lips. She sighed and shook her head ruefully, gently clearing her throat.

#91) Me and my boyfriend have been bronies from the beginning and we've been thinking about having a kid. We heard somewhere that they can inject animal DNA into the womb in the first few weeks to give the child animal-like features. We think this would be the coolest thing ever but we fear others will frown on it and our beautiful pony child will be looked down upon. What advice do you have for me?
Answer: I think your sources are quite credible. You can, indeed, inject animal DNA into the womb to create animal-human hybrids. That's why you quite often see dog-boys, cat-girls and giraffe-children walking around town centres. It's becoming more acceptable nowadays, but you might want to give it a few more years before you try it out, just to avoid the beast-baby facing ridicule at school. They may have an elephant-teacher, which would help the child feel more 'normal', but if all the class-mates are human, or another form of animal hybrid, it could be difficult for them
