#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
Review of MLP: FiM's Crystal EmpireReview of MLP: FiM's Crystal Empire3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
The big two-parter has arrived! And My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is kicking off with the Crystal Empire two-parter.
The first part is about Celestia giving Twilight the rather monumental test of finding a way to protect the Crystal Empire upon its mysterious return from the shadowy King Sombra (meaning shadow in Spanish).
And the second part is focuses more on Twilight finding the Crystal Heart which is key to stopping Sombra.
This two parter is easily the most visually stunning two-parter yet. Everything from movement to lighting to the absolutely gorgeous looking Crystal Empire is incredibly well-designed.
And surprisingly enough, darker as well. As in, there was more liberal use of black and shadows this time around, giving some pivotal scenes more atmosphere.
This willingness to be 'dark' just means that kids get a more well-rounded entertainment. They're gonna' have to use the potty on their own one day after all.
However, that's also the double-edge sword with Crystal Empi
Birds of a Feather Ch1Sweet! Now, we're talkin'! Nightmare Night's just a couple days away, and I've got the perfect costume. Twenty percent cooler than last years; not to mention, all that candy! Just for dressing up, too. Man, Nightmare Night's my favorite holiday, ever. Since the other citizens of Ponyville aren't afraid of Princess Luna anymore, this should be more fun. Especially, if we can somehow convince a certain yellow Pegasus to come out of her home for that night...Birds of a Feather Ch13 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I just knew you would love it! After all, not everypony has to have a scary costume. I've checked over the measurements, and everything's set. But I do have a question to ask you, Rainbow."
I turned my gaze to Rarity, who was standing directly beside me. "Huh, what? Oh, um...yeah, shoot!"
The white unicorn smiled, "I'm very flattered that you've chosen me to sew your costume together...but with so many shops right here, in town, why haven't you checked any of those? Certainly, any of them would have had the same one."

Twilight sat at the bottom of that dark pit cradling Dewdrop's body for what seemed like an eternity, though it couldn't have been longer than a few seconds. She shook constantly, sobbing into Dewdrop's matted, dusty hair.
"You stupid, silly pony" she whispered hoarsely to Dewdrop as she held her in her hooves, though she wasn't sure if she'd aimed that at Dewdrop or herself. Her head was awash with angry, guilty thoughts, her stomach was a boiling maelstrom and she wanted to be sick.
"There's no such thing as 'evil'" Princess Luna had once told her. "No pony gets up one morning and decides that they're going to go out and do bad things. They do bad things thinking that they're the most reasonable and logical reactions to a situation." Was it true? Had Twilight really gone too far? Was it more than just a terrible accident?
Not even Princess Luna in her darkest of hours had ever killed another pony. It was unheard of. Inconceivable.

A Night with Archer
written by Aelius
I didn't know what to expect for my first "shadowing" of a superhero. I'd prepared myself for three days, mostly with physical training and a bit of quick writing sessions while still tired from working out. Even so, it didn't calm my nerves. I'd be tailing a super heroine! Even with her permission, it was nerve-wracking to think about.
Before I continue, I guess I should introduce myself since this is my first article. For my own protection, my name will remain a secret. Everyone calls me 'the Runner,' due to my fondness for parkour which also allows me to keep up with the supers I'm likely to join for my articles. I have no powers; I'm merely an athlete pursuing a journalism degree in college. Luckily, the Valkyries magazine had need for gifted writers with enough physical prowess to keep
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 Ever4 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
Luna's Best Night Ever: 4The punch was cool and refreshing, if a little bland. Luna sipped it slowly and watched the other ponies at the party as they chatted and played. The music, some new style called "pop" that she had never heard of, was playing loudly and served as the backdrop for the event. The cheerful melodies reflected the happiness that everypony else was feeling. Luna finished her glass and refilled it for the third time, taking another bite from one of the cupcakes forming a neat stack on her plate. They were much too sweet for her taste but she continued to eat them in small, refined nibbles.Luna's Best Night Ever: 44 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The moment everypony had seen her enter Luna's instincts told her to run. Instead the sudden shock of being in the spotlight had frozen her in place, sitting on the floor and unable to budge.
"Luna? Are you OK?"
She needed a way to escape the situation or shift focus away from her. Her mind searched for answers while her eyes scanned the room.
"Is something wrong? Oh! I didn't ask if you have a heart cond
Luna's Best Night Ever: 5Luna spent the rest of the party with her eyes glued to the necklace. Neither of the other two Elements present at the party had manifested a focus for their power, which made it all the more troublesome that the pink mare had apparently called hers forth. Luna hoped that it was instinctive, a reflex action. The Element of Laughter had told her to lighten up, perhaps it was just something that happened whenever they were embodying their nature to its fullest extent. The troubling part was that nopony besides her seemed to even notice it existed.Luna's Best Night Ever: 54 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She decided to ask Twilight once she had the nerve again. After having studied the Elements for so long under Celestia's orders she'd surely have some sort of explanation for it, especially if it was innate magic like that of a unicorn. She was so lost in thought that she collided with something soft and purple. She blinked and found herself face to face with Twilight's flank. Twilight turned to look at her, eyebrow raised. Luna let out a soft,
Luna's Best Night Ever 8Luna had expected the panicking. Being honest and open was refreshing, but she knew that it also had consequences. Twilight's stunned expression and slight, nervous twitch seemed to indicate that the consequence of telling the truth about the gala and Nightmare Moon was the total mental collapse of the purple mare.Luna's Best Night Ever 84 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Nightmare Moon is... back?"
Luna nodded and Twilight's mouth moved, forming words that came out as faint whispers and quiet babbling.
"Twilight? I... didn't mean to hide it from you. I was ashamed of what I had done at the gala, and I still am. I've been trying to figure out the best possible way to correct things and-"
"That's not what I'm worried about. How long have you known?"
Twilight's eyes were focused and her fear seemed to have rapidly shifted to anger. Luna wondered if being screamed at by Twilight for making a huge mess of things was better or worse than having to fight Nightmare Moon again on her own.
"Known... about Fluttershy?"
Twilight nodded, standing up.

1- The Creation of the Universe and the Birth of the Alicorn Gods
In the beginning, there was nothing but empty darkness. There was no time, no sun or moon, and no ponies. But one day, if you could call it a day, there was a tremendous explosion of light brighter then anything that had ever been or ever will be and out of the Light came two alicorns. The first was named Uronus and the second was named Geia. Both alicorns looked around at the space the Light had made and both set forth to explore this universe. Uronus created the abstract side of the universe, taming the storms of magic that were leftover from the Great explosion of Light and distributing it evenly across the universe. Geia created the physical side of the universe, making meteors that turned into planets and making the stars and moons. The alicorns looked at their work and were pleased and both alicorns knew each other and by doing so begated more alicorns to wonder the universe. These alicorns were born

Twilight skimmed through the diary. Luna had fallen asleep; willing oneself strong only went so far, especially when sick, and she needed to be ready to guide the moon down. She lay at Twilight's feet, a book as a pillow. A voice in Twilight's head had been telling her to just lay down beside her, keep her warm....Twilight had never been smitten before, and surprised herself constantly with the thoughts that ran through her head. But she turned it all into fuel for her study. To figure out what was making Luna sick. Something told her to keep going through the diary. At some point, she had decided, she was going to have to introduce Luna and Rarity to each other for real, given the Princess's professed love of gems (how would the night sky look in rubies, not diamonds, she asked her diary at one point) and pretty things in general. It was also uncanny at times reading about Luna trying to study or practice magic (studying being much more hands on when you were inventing liter
To Be An AlicornSweet Apple Acres was a busy place in the spring. Two young stallions walked the fields with plows in tow, while a mailpony dragged in shipments of seeds and tools, and a couple more ponies were visible amonst the apple trees. Adding to the general bustle was a visitor to the farm who gingerly stepped out of the sky, looked around, and opened the gate into the main homestead area. A filly, not quite yet a mare, with a light green coat and straw-colored hair and baskets strapped to her saddle had been trotting through the area, and noticed the visitor first. She stopped dead in her tracks, eyes as big as the moon.To Be An Alicorn4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Oh, hello." the visitor said. "I'm here to see Applejack. Is she around?"
"G-great-granny Applejack?" the filly asked. The visitor paused, and nodded. The young pony kept her eyes on the visitor and pointed towards the barn. There, in a rocking chair, an ancient mare sat with a worn brown steltson covering her eyes. Her coat was gray but with a healthy sheen, a

"I... I don't believe it. So Luna is... was... Nightmare Moon?"
"Some small part of her was transformed by Discord, as damaged and fragmented as the moon was by the time he was done with it. And while my magic could pull together the pieces of the moon and bind them together once more, there was nothing I could do for my sister. By the time I realized that the Elements of Harmony were the key to mending her broken mind, she had already been consumed."
The colt shuddered slightly as he pictured Luna, wrapped in a veil of shadows and transforming the landscape into a twisted nightmare realm.
"So what are you going to do, princess?"
Celestia's lips curved into a wry smile. Her eyes narrowed slightly as she turned to face Silver, smiling broadly.
"Do? I've already done it. I

The city of Canterlot was alive with activity. Under the direction of Princess Luna, the royal guard worked in tandem with construction ponies and other civilians to clear away the rubble and debris from the ruined streets. The azure alicorn stood on the balcony of a palace tower, giving orders to the last of the waiting pegasus captains. As the pegasi darted off toward their tasks, Luna breathed a heavy sigh and retreated into the tower. The drapes on the windows were drawn closed, and the only illumination came from what little sunlight entered through the balcony door. She walked softly to the edge of a grand, royal bed and sat down, gently pulling the blankets back to reveal the sleeping face of Princess Celestia.
The day princess sweated feverishly in her slumber, her eyes moving rapidly under her
Laughing JackX Reader- Friendship builds love CH.3As the days passed by, you and your friend Jack had been meeting up almost every day. And the best part about it is that you didn't have to go the carnival to see him. He visits you often. Well, on times that you weren't allowed to leave the house. And there are also times that he would accompany you to school, since you walk there on your own. Some kids would eventually laugh at you upon seeing a black and white clown. Jack would notice your sadness and anger would eventually boil within him. He wished he could get rid of those nasty kids immediately, but you, being kind hearted, told him that the whole teasing doesn't count. As long as no hurts you physically, you’re just fine. He wasn't fully convinced about it. After school he’d also accompany you home, but just a little further because he doesn't want anybody seeing him.

"Good evening." Luna greeted Twilight as the young unicorn stepped onto the same balcony as the princess. It had been just beyond their rooms, facing slightly off of south, giving a few of the city below. Canterlot had not fallen asleep yet; carts traveled to their final destinations of the day, couples went about for dinner, shopkeeps began to close up for home. Twilight bowed her head in greetings as she stepped out.
"Celly dotes on me so, it's a little embarrassing." Luna looked past Twilight to the two guards nearby. Twilight gave a nervous smile. She wondered - was this Celestia trying to protect her younger sister, or protect others from her little sister?
"How are you feeling?" she asked to shift the conversation. So far, Luna, while soft-spoken, didn't seem so poorly. Her opinion shifted slightly when Luna hung her head and let out a long sigh.
"So tired. And the night hasn't even begun. Once upon a time I relished this time of day, if only because I knew at least for

Rarity stirred gingerly, her head was pounding and her mouth felt as dry as a sun-baked hay-bale. She groaned loudly as she struggled to open her eyes, she hadn't felt this awful in a long time. It had clearly been a mistake to tell Pinkie Pie to bring some extra drinks, the hyperactive party-pony had practically turned up with an entire vineyard.
Rarity felt the soft, satin sheets of her bedspread beneath her body, her hooves wrapped around something delightfully soft and warm. Opening her eyes she felt a brief moment of disappointment as she realised it was only one of her large bed pillows. Burying her muzzle into the fluffy pillow she let out another groan as she tried to remember the antics of the previous night, her pounding head making the task far more difficult than she wanted it to be.
Her mind stumbled through memories of pouring glasses of wine, laughing and eating an unhealthy amount of sweets. The intangible void o
