Warning, the following contains spoilers for the Royal Wedding episodes.
As the Changelings began preparing for a feast upon the population of Canterlot, all chaos broke loose. Ponies fleeing every direction, looking for a way to escape the insect like creatures that were chattering excitedly just behind them, forcing them to rush past their physical limits to find safety. The exits of the city were left unguarded. With the shield shattered, any pony could leave in addition to the assailants getting in.
One pony in particular was already at the Western exit by the time the shields had been broken down. Several others joined her; after witnessing the Queen of the Changelings, Chrysalis, viciously take down their dear Princess, many of the attendees of the wedding quickly began to flee. Once the pulsing violet protection spell shattered, the frantic Equestrians waiting at the gates bolted from one of Canterlot's exits. Other groups of ponies rushed out in a hysterical group from t

Twilight grunted and stretched, turning her head into her pillow in a last ditch effort to catch just a few more seconds of sleep.
"Um . up yet?" Rainbow's voice cracked a bit with the upward inflection of the question, to which she already knew the answer.
Twilight nodded as she continued to stretch, eyes still closed.
Rainbow didn't feel the need to allow Ms. Sparkle to awaken any further to let her in on the good news. "Hey Twi, guess what."
Twilight's eyes blearily opened, one just before the other, in attempt to acknowledge the impatient pony who had been so kind as to steal her away from her slumber. " Yeah?"
"We have a reply. It must have come when we were asleep." She could tell her friend, due to her current lack of any real sense of consciousness, wasn't nearly as excited as she was. "So you wanna read it?"
Twilight nodded, sitting up in her bed. She located the scroll nestled in the blankets covering her lap. She used her magic to levitate it in front of her,

"Inuyasha!" Kagome called for what seemed to be like the hundredth time. "Inuyasha!" She clutched her bloody wound on her shoulder. Her grip on the sword tightened. The girl dashed back and forth trying to find him. Where on earth could he have gone? She was worried and not being able to find him didn't help much.
The young raven haired girl came across a small cave. Inside shallow, raspy breaths could be heard. She stepped forth.
Scary Stories for Ponies to tell in the DarkIt was yet another sunny afternoon down in Ponyville, the sun was shining, the birds where singing, there was hardly a cloud in the sky; a yellow Pegasus, Fluttershy, was trotting back home after buying food for her animals, making sure to not forget anything as she double-checked her memorised list.Scary Stories for Ponies to tell in the Dark4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Let's see, I've got carrots for Angel Bunny, berries for the field mice, extra nuts for the squirrels, chicken feed for the chickens, of course..." her large blue eyes flitting back and forth with each item she'd bought, "I guess I've got everything I need, now to get it all home safely." As she continued through the town, Fluttershy smiled, feeling the warmth of the sun on her face, "It's such a beautiful day, I'm sure everyone is enjoying themselves, especially on a day like this."
"Hi there!" a pink Earth Pony popped up right in front of Fluttershy, causing the Pegasus to leap out of her skin; it was Pinkie Pie, always popping up out of nowhere and surprising others.

Inuyasha wasn't the type of being who would get hurt feelings or upset about things, quite the contrary. He was an extremly tough, strong man, always having the will to battle on. He never gave up a fight and he never stopped fighting, especially when it came to protecting his friends and the people he cared about more than anything. He wasn't the type to show his emotions either. The hanyou always kept a stern, cold exterior about most things, but when it came to a certain person it was sometimes hard. He'd usually hide away his fears or worries and try to cover them up with what he thought was an asshole, snappy, angry attitude, but that one woman could see right through him and he knew that, try as he might not to believe it. The light was nearly blinding him as his golden eyes slowly fluttered opened. There were shapes above him and his head was h

They say that time heals all wounds. But that's not true. Sometimes, time only causes the wound to fester—to become infected and burn with the fire of loss.
I have told this story at least a hundred times. And every time is like opening the wound afresh and pouring salt into it. So now, I write it down on paper so that those who wish to hear the tale may read of it. For I will never tell this story again.

Shining stared up at the oak door that towered above him. It was a normal door, no different than a typical door one would find inside a house. But given the contents stored away behind it, it had an unusually grand feel to it, and Shining couldn't help but feel dwarfed in its shadow.
The old grandfather clock down the hall let out twelve loud booms.
It was noon. The high sun's rays shone through a nearby window and across Shining's stationary, white frame. It warmed his fur while he kept his blue eyes locked on the door.
His parents always said how the attic held an eclectic assortment of things, from old music records to hardcover books that hadn't been opened since his grandparents lived in the house a decade before.
Shining imagined his deceased grandfather, the stallion with the amputated hoof and a pair of wild, yet kind, eyes. Shining imagined his still-alive grandmother, the sweet mare that would always have a batch of cookies at her house for him and

Soarin' was in his bedroom, resting after his performance. Tonight was Saturday, which meant there was a LOT of ponies at the stadium. And Soarin' wasn't big on crowds.
He sat there, staring at the twinkling stars in the night sky, thinking about somepony he had had on his mind ever since last year's Best Young Flier Competition in Cloudsdale. A certain mare by the name of:

Another time, he had seen her at the Grand Galloping Gala. He had dropped his pie and she had caught it. He was eternally grateful to her. Then there was the time they had gotten to dance together, at the wedding of Shining Armor and Princess Cadence. He thanked her for saving his life, th

The day was dreary and dark. The landscape devoid of lush life, replaced with jagged rock and twisted trees, branches like arms outstretched. The calm bluish-grey day hidden behind a veil of dark grey and thunder, yet neigh a drop of rain fell from the sky.
The lone figure of a pony hid behind one of the many trees, her face mostly hidden behind the black fabric of her outfit. Her orange eyes darting around. She was focused, determined to accomplish her mission.
"Now to find a way to sneak into the castle." The filly, Apple Bloom, muttered. Her country drawl clear even if her mouth was hidden behind the black fabric. She gazed up towards her destination. A large, gothic castle perched high atop the mountain, towers rising up to end in cone-like roofs. Fire

"Consarn it Pinkie Pie. How do you manage to cause such a mess?" Applejack thought, cleaning off yet another glob of frosting with a paper towel before tossing it into a nearby garbage pail.
She looked around and sighed. The entire bedroom was a disaster. Baking utensils scattered all around the floor like pieces of debris after a hurricane. Globs of batter and frosting covered the walls, floor and ceiling. Glassware that once gave the pink mare's room an element of beauty were shattered, pieces of which littered the floor like shrapnel. It was too great of a mess to be handled by one pony, even if that one pony happened to be Pinkie Pie.
Frustrated with her lack of success cleaning solo, the pink mare ran outside to ask passing ponies for assistance. She wasn't having any luck until Applejack and Rainbow Dash walked by, giving their friend a small wave as they passed. Pinkie Pie took advantage of the opportunity and jumped in front of them, her breathing hea

Momoko sat at home on a couch, after she's just woken up from a nap, with nothing to do.
"So boring~", she said to herself and thought about anything she could spend her time with.
"I could take another nap", she thought, but switched on the TV first to check if there is anything interesting on.
There was a show about Martial Arts on, in which different fighting professionals from all around the world are portrayed.
Momoko enjoyed watching this show, even though there never was anything about Capoeira, a brazilian battle dance, which is her fighting style.
Halfway through the show, Momoko got bored of it.
"Boring aswell... I really should go back to take a nap", she spoke out loud then suddenly a special report came up.

However, within the apple orchard of Sweet Apple Acres, up in a tree where a little clubhouse resides, the Cutie Mark Crusaders are discussing their next plan to earn their cutie marks.

Twilight rubbed her eyes against the sides of her forelegs. She had finally done it. Weeks of work, and so many sleepless nights behind her had finally paid off. The first few pages of the dusty old tome no longer looked as if they were written in gibberish. She could read it, granted with a pile of notes surrounding her. That didn't matter though, her mystery was finally coming to its solution, even if that in and of itself would take just as long. She had an entire book to translate, which could take just as many weeks as finding the proper references had.
Still, she had a peek into a nameless book. A mystery not even she could deny.

It was a beautiful night in Equestria. Princess Luna stood watching over the land, taking in the awe of the world around her, the greens of the fields that covered the vast horizon, the browns of the forests that decorated the horizons. She looked outward, keeping an eye on all of the ponies as they slept peacefully through the night, each one with their own stories, their own histories and futures. It had been a long day. The Pegasus ponies had created a mighty storm earlier; huge, dark clouds hung above; thunder cracked across the skies and strong winds howled through the trees. It was a beautiful yet frightening sight to behold, and now, everypony needed a rest after the commotion. Luna just watched, as families slept in their stables, open fires crackled across the horizon, illuminating the land like fireflies as a cool breeze swept the land causing the flames to dance. She became lost in the beauty for hours, just watching in silence, as the fires danced for

Tryouts, Tears and Truth
Applejack really should have been apple bucking. Instead, she stood in the orchard, her green eyes taking in the vast sky, her mind wandering.
She always used to stress that daydreaming during work should be saved for the occasional five-minute breaks. She believed that having her mind on subjects not related to apple bucking would result in a reduction in her work quality and speed or, as she put it, "lolly-gagging".
Normally, the only thing that could get her mind off work was thinking about zap apple pies, which never failed to make her mouth water as she imagined their warm, crispy goodness.
Now, however, she was not thinking about anything relating to apples-regular or zap-or apple bucking.
She was deep in thought about something else entirely.
And even with so much more apple bucking left to do, she found herself unable to concentrate on work for any longer than a minute.
Her strange attention span loss started early that morning, when Rainbow Dash

They hardly ever lifted a hoof to consider the fear they struck in the ponies on the lands below, or the potential damage they caused. Why should the pegasi care?

"I could ask you the same thing, Rainbow!" replied the pink pony frowning. "I understand when you girls hide stuff related to my super secret awesome birthday party, but my birthday is a few months away! So what gives?"

The floor is bare and dusty, hastily swept to clear only the largest of debris. The high ceiling that once arched neatly in the middle now sags between wooden ribs. Although one can imagine it caving in as soon as it gets tired enough, the high ceiling will serve to circulate fresh air to the fanatics who will soon congregate below. Only their energy, harnessed in the form of a fiery, graceful martial art, can transform this old gym. The vehemence of capoeira can impart life and power to whatever it touches. In the meantime, the room sleeps, unused and indifferent.
Then they come, people of diverse shapes and sizes and colours, and all that dull stillness changes. The capoeira class falls into the pattern of warm up movements. The gritty floor scrapes against their calloused feet. After an hour of arduous practice, some stretch, some gulp their water desperately, and some apply athlete's tape to their blistered feet.
The capoeiristas gather, tired but enthusiastic, at one end of the ro
