White Eclipse Part 1 - A Chance Occurrence
It was another lonely night for a certain navy alicorn. Another night spent staring at the sky she had carefully crafted, knowing in her heart that nopony else was going to see it. They were always too busy working during the day and couldn't be bothered to stay up for even a few minutes to look at the sky and think "Wow, Luna certainly did a great job tonight."
Luna stared at her sky spitefully, filled to the brim with anger. Anger at the ponies, at her sister, at the world. She let all her anger spill out as she struck a nearby rock, only to be brought back two-fold when a fierce pain shot throug

Most days, a pony wakes up thinking "What is today going to bring?" or "Did I remember my homework assignment?"
Today, I woke up thinking "Where the hay am I?"
Cracking my eyes open, I could feel the heat of the sun shining down on my coat, I could hear the birds chirping, and I could sense that I was not where I was when I went to bed.
Pulling myself up to my hooves, I looked down, just to be sure that they were the same as when I went to bed. As I stared down, I saw a strange emblem burned into the ground all around me. And that was just the start of the weirdness.
In addition to the splitting headache I h

"Sir, I'm not sure I heard you correctly" I said, drying my tears and rising to my hooves, shivers wracking my body. Rarity stepped to the side, horror carved into her expression.
"While it pains me to say so, my hoof has been forced. You simply have to leave, at least until this matter is settled."
No. This isn't how it ends. This isn't supposed to happen! THIS ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN!!
"You... you can't do this! I'm one of the only ponies who knows what the buck's going on! You need me to stop this guy!"
"Well, be that as it may, that is not for me alone to decide. We must hear from the princesses, as well as the

A week had passed since Twilight's party, and things were going swimmingly for me. Turns out that my wing wasn't broken, only dislocated, so Fluttershy and I went down to Ponyville Urgent Care where they popped it back into place. It hurt like the dickens, but at least it was functional again.
I had been living a pretty idyllic life for the past week. I helped Fluttershy take care of her little animal friends, Rainbow Dash had gotten me a position on the weather team, and was teaching me how to properly control my flight, as well as some awesome tricks, and I had checked out a book from Twilight. It was a storybook,

We had been roaming the forest for a good two hours, occasionally using the book as a reference, but we were nowhere close to where it said that the castle is. It was a full moon that night so there was plenty of light to read by, but the book was so outdated that we had trouble recognizing some of the landmarks it referenced. What's worse is that since it was nearly 1:00 in the morning, we were all getting tired.
Fluttershy was the first to voice her opinion, offering a plantive yawn and saying "Guys, I think that we should stop for the night."
"We've barely even gotten a mile into the forest," retorted Rainbow Das

While I was almost certain that we hadn't travelled far by the time I woke up, my surroundings told me that I was definitely not in Ponyville anymore. The gray stonework of whatever cell or dungeon I was in was just as uncomfortable to look at as the ropes binding my limbs together. The various chains and shackles lining the walls didn't give me a vote of confidence either.
I expected to see those robed cultists standing on either side of me as I looked around, and I was flummoxed to see that there were royal guards standing next to me, as well as behind me and at the door. These stallions were different, thou

~Three Months Later~
It was raining. Again. For the third day straight.
You know, it's kinda weird how I only truly miss the weather team scheduling the storms when I have it taken away from me. I guess that's how it works for everything, I suppose.
I crawled blearily from the cave that I had been calling home for the last week or two, rubbing the sleep out of my eyes and stretching my wings as I took in my surroundings. Not much to look at, but it was home. The rain filtering down through the trees, falling to the earth with big fat plops. The many layers of dead leaves and broken limbs that covered the ground. W

Nighttime had fallen by the time we reached the camp, and I was completely drained from the amount of blood I had lost. The wound was worse than it seemed at first, and refused to clot. After the first hour of walking, my hoof was drenched with my life fluid and the front of my cloak was soaked.
"Hey, Silver," I said.
"What do you want?"
"I think I'm about to pass out. You know, from the blood loss and all." Even as I spoke, I could feel my head lightening up and my hoof steps growing dangerously misaligned. "If I do, would you be so kind as to drag me into the camp?"
"I'd prefer to leave you to die, but that wou

My half of our collective nap was fitful at best, especially after the revelations of that unicorn, so I was almost grateful when Fluttershy shook me awake.
"Evan, Evan wake up," she said softly as she nudged her nose at my head.
With a plaintive yawn I pulled myself up and took note of how much darker it had become. Apparently I had slept for longer than I thought.
"Hey there, sleepyhead," cooed Fluttershy in that motherly voice. "Feeling any better?"
"I could ask you the same, but yes, I'm fine. We're back together, everypony is safe and happy for the most part, and we're well on our way to getting Ponyvi

We both agreed to return to the restaurant first, just to be sure everypony else was alright before returning to the town proper. I was expecting to see utter destruction, so you can only imagine my relief upon seeing that the restaurant was unharmed.
We landed at a gallop and ran into the restaurant, much to the surprise of the patrons and staff alike. Everything looked pretty much as we had left it, and a calming wave of relief rushed over my mind. Fluttershy looked just about as relieved as I was that her friends were alright, at least for now.
The two of us trotted over to the corner table, where the ot

The road down Lily Street was slick with rainwater, the Canterlot pegasi having decided to schedule a rainstorm for that evening. Not that it was really needed in a big city, but that was of no concern to the lone hooded figure walking in the nighttime gloom, illuminated only by the few street lamps that he happened to pass. He had business to attend to, and he wasn't going to let a little rain discourage him.
Through the darkness, he made out a large manor down at the end of the street, and knew that he was where he needed to be. It was resplendent, and showed that a pony of high stature lived there. The lone pony

The organization that Twilight set me to consumed most of my morning, as well as a good part of the afternoon. It seemed that for every three sets I would finish, Rarity would bring in six more. After about six hours, or my eighth cry of frustration, she decided to leave the actual production line and helped me sort, which was nice in her own special way.
"I am so glad that you're alright," she said, drumming up a conversation. "Sweetie Belle broke down when she heard that you were missing, and she still hasn't left our tent, even when her friends came to visit."
"Oh yes. She seems to have taken

Returning home at about 8:30 I could tell that something was wrong. All the lights in the cottage were off, and the door hung slightly ajar. Two things I knew for a fact about Fluttershy is that she never went to bed until I got home, and she ALWAYS remembers to lock her door if she is out in town, or if she isn't going back out for the rest of the day. This was too weird.
I went quietly up to the door, hoping that nopony was inside waiting to stave my head in. I pushed open the door as quietly as I could, although it squeaked very slightly on it's hinges. Peeking my head inside, I called out, "Hello?"

A dark corridor. I was walking down a dark corridor, illuminated only by a few flickering candles. I don't know how I got there, only that I need to go forward, to find somepony.
After walking for what seemed an eternity, I came to a plain white door with a nondescript brass handle. The door was slightly ajar, and all I could see beyond was a deep pervading blackness, like light had given up all hope of trying to illuminate it.
I pushed the door open with my hoof and entered, the door closing behind me with a click and the darkness engulfing me. "Hello?" I called out to the darkness, not really expecting an answer.

When we left Rarity's place it was about half past 3, and my stomach was growling, having only eaten earlier that morning. Fortunately, my stomach growls were muffled by my new green button down vest with a light brown trim, which she says really brings out my eyes. I took her word for it, if only so that I could take off and get something to eat with Fluttershy.
"So, um, what would you like to do next?" she asked, as if on cue.
"Well, I was getting kinda hungry. Being in that boutique really takes it out of you."
"Don't I know it. I once had to model for Rarity."
"Oh, really? What was it for?"
"Well, this r
