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.

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.
My sight started to get worse but gladly my *home* was not far away. With the remaining power that was still in my weaken body I entered the wealthy building that was outstanding others

#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 m

Canterlot's silent, evening streets were not graced by the moon's rays, as a thick veil of storm clouds blocked it from view. The calm before the storm was chilling, the entire world holding its breath in anticipation of the first drop of rain.
And when it fell, it came in torrents, crashing over rooftops and spilling into overflowing gutters. A streak of lightning illuminated the entirety of the peaceful capital, the violent rumble of thunder following quickly on its heels.
However, the solitary pony ensconced within the Canterlot Palace archives paid no mind to the storm outside. She'd come to the archives on a mission; a mission of which

"And what is it that you are here for today, citizen?"
In the royal day courtroom there stood many ponies of all shapes and sizes, ranging from bulky earth ponies to slight pegasi to frail Unicorns all the way to the giant mixture of the previous three races, an Alicorn. Celestia sat on top of a regal and rich purple pillow on the side of the court away from the large doors that gave entrance to it. Next to her stood the green coated day captain, his posture rigid and his face plastered with a seemingly permanent smirk. On the other side of Celestia was her technically former student Starswirl who now spent his days acting mainly as her adviser and her chief spell maker. The rest of the courtroom was filled with various ponies who stood in various positions, some off to the side to observe while others formed a long line that reached the back of the giant and o

Now the hour has come at last
The soft and fading light
Has crossed the west horizon
And has bidden us goodnight
-The Moon Rises
Air colored a lavender-blue, the smallest rays of light peaked over the horizon to shine towards the sprawling lands that lay over that horizon. These were the most petite of beams however, not enough to bring true light to those who it passed over but enough to signal the dawn of day. It was these lights that lightened the sky to the shade of the only one viewing them with great wonder, a being with the body of a pony, the wings of a pegasus and the horn of a unicorn while she was none of these things. If she were to take flight she could easily

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 o

Rainbow Dash lay on a cloud, head in her hooves, looking out at nothing in particular. She had to keep her gaze down to keep the sun out of her eyes, and ended up pony-watching. Nothing in particular was going on; it was early enough in the summer that the heat hadn't gotten bad, but after planting season. Ponies went about their business in the late morning, a few deciding on an early lunch while most ran errands or still worked. Nothing special at all. At least, until she saw Fluttershy rushing through town with full saddlebags. It was odd enough to see Fluttershy in such a hurry, let alone with her packs. Rainbow Dash decided to

With the Shadow Dragons defeated, the universe could once more experience peace. The earth's greatest hero vanished into parts unknown, and even though for a time he was revered as its great savior time marched on, and the people forgot as people often do. The result was a planet Earth that was at peace with itself, and finally the Human race started to mature and could stand on its own two feet. The peaceful Namekians began trading with the Human beings, and eventually they even had settlers from each others respective worlds living among the natives. This change in Humanity marked a forward march in the growt

Of all the places to drop me off with a wave and a smile, a distinct lack of directions, why here, why now? Was there something I was supposed to do? If so, I hope it was accomplished by somebody else, because I doubt I was the one to do it. Is there something I'm supposed to do yet? If so, will I have the chance or do I need to forge my own way?

On the Wings of LoyaltyI swooped over the final peak between me and the open skies above the city. Far below, reconstruction workers were clearing the roads into the mountains. Crews were busy loading the last of the rubble from the outlying suburbs into dump trucks so the materials could be processed and recycled. Several houses looked untouched while others still had visible scars. Reconstruction in the city itself was progressing as well with electric tram lines, roads and maglev tracks returning to their former glory. Even the houses in the new communities were coming along nicely. Although it will be some time before everything returns to normal, I knowOn the Wings of Loyalty10 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I sat quietly in my seat as the train flew by on the tracks. The train car shook a bit every so often as I looked out the window, the scenery quickly passing us by, not letting me even glimpse its beauty for a first… and last time. As I looked out the window, my hoof on my chin, I saw a slight reflection of myself. I saw myself for who I truly was and I focused on what I was going to do when I arrived in the town. My name is Rough Draft, and this is my story.
As the train ride continued, I dug around in my old saddle bag, the handles so deteriorated they could fall off any second. I got my journal and my old fountain pen, the only thi

Okay, here's the first of my MLP episode reviews and I will be reviewing the newest episodes as they air, and for the older episodes, I'll be waiting until Season 3 is over so I will be all caught up by the time Season 4 comes out!
Now let's see, 'Keep Calm, And Flutter On.' This is the episode that most of the Discord fans have been waiting for since we last saw him in 'The Return of Harmony' and after a 3 week long wait, we've been highly anticipating this episode since this is the only Fluttershy episode we will be getting this season.

The elf was only a few inches shorter than the humanoid dragon, with black hair flowing down to the bottom of his neck.

What a head ache. It was as though Hero's head was being pierced by an iron spike. He rubbed his head, cringing in pain, as he sat up from his bed. Glancing out his window, he could see that he had been sleeping since the fight with Lord Vines. The moon was high and rested over storm clouds that had rolled in while Hero slept. But what happened? He couldn't recall anything after that freak of nature grabbed him with those fleshy tendrils. Maybe some fresh air would clear up this headache.
