'Happy Hearth's Warming Eve, Squirt': IMPROVED
"A family is a little world created by love."
"Happy Hearth's Warming Eve, Squirt"
The streets of Ponyville were empty- everypony had gone off to celebrate the holiday. The air was chilled, with an indigo sky so dark even the most dim stars stood out like giant fireflies. The sides of the street were lined with a thin layer of snow. It was an unusually snow-less Hearth's Warming Eve - briskly cold, but not cold enough for snow to remain in its crystallized state.
Scootaloo slowly trotted down the empty road, head hung low and tail tucked between her legs- both out of depression and as a means to keep herself warm in the chilly night air. The gentle gust, persistent in its presence, made the filly's purple mane flicker.
She lifted her head, her set of violet eyes looked left, then right. Nothing but darkened shops and illuminated homes, candles perched in the windowsills, flickering behind the glass as she walked on. She thought about her final destination - her

I could feel her little hooves pressing down against by back. She jumped up and down excitedly as she gazed at the podium floating in front of us. A massive crowd had gathered, pegasi from all over Cloudsdale standing around, anxiously awaiting the verdict on which city would be lucky enough to host the Equestrian games that year.
My little Dashie had been so excited about it. For the weeks leading up to it, the announcement was all she talked about. Once a filly obsessed solely with flying, the Wonderbolts and napping had found a new stock to invest more of her passion into.
She bought so much Equestria Games memorabilia: from customized t-shirts and hats to even a pennant flag that she constantly trotted around the house with, waving it around while singing the Equestria Games’ anthem at the top of her lungs.
It didn’t matter how many times I told her the decision to hold the Games in Cloudsdale wasn’t set in stone a
Too many Pinkie Pies - Alternate endingIt was cold in this place, she thought to herself. Of course, it was a cave after all, so coldness was expected. Looking around she could tell that this place had been hardly touched in all the years that it had stood. At least until the events of the last few days.Too many Pinkie Pies - Alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Twilight Sparkle sat at the edge of what was known as the mirror pond. An ancient and, until recently, fairy tale place that dwelt within the Everfree Forest. She herself had heard of the tales, though only in passing as a child. It was not something she'd ever given much thought to. But, her friend, Pinkie Pie, had come here herself and, through the magic of the pond, made many copies of herself. She had done it in an effort to make sure that she was able to spend time with all of her friends.
The purple unicorn could not help but chuckle to herself. As always, she was just being Pinkie Pie. Only the energetic earth pony could come into a magical place like this and casually cast a spell on herself for the simple purpose o
Wonderbolt Academy - Alternate endingAs she approached the blue door, she hesitated. Ever since Rainbow's denouncing of Lightning Dust, which occurred in front of not only her friends, but her entire squad of recruits, this was something she knew she had to do. But that didn't mean she had to like it. She'd been practically trembling on the approach to Spitfire's office. What she planned to do here, and what consequences that might emerge from it, were things she did not care to think about. But she also knew that if she didn't do this, if she simply kept quiet and went along with what had been going on, she'd never forgive herself for it.Wonderbolt Academy - Alternate ending3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She lifted her hoof and pushed the door open. Once open, Rainbow saw within the office. Spitfire was there, continuing to do what she'd been doing the last time Rainbow had visited her, signing autographs. It was understandable of course. Being as famous a flier as she was, Spitfire probably had to spend half her day doing this. Though it was clear from the look on her face that she did
Magical mystery cure - A slow recoveryIt was a beautiful day in the northern reaches of Equestria. The rolling hills and grassy plains were, under the bright yellow sun, truly a sight to behold. Going straight through the middle of this lovely countryside was a single long train track, and upon it, a brightly coloured train. It was moving along at a good pace and heading towards a place that, until a year ago, was nothing more than a frozen wasteland. Within the train were a multitude of ponies, earth, pegasi and unicorn alike, from many different villages and towns to the south, all travelling together towards the northern Crystal Empire.Magical mystery cure - A slow recovery2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But among them was a particularly special group of ponies, and one young dragon. In a car towards the back of the train, a close collection of friends were all sitting in their seats, admiring the view. Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Applejack and Spike were all doing their best to enjoy the train ride, which was usually something they looked forward to. But not today. Bec

They had been through a very unpleasant ordeal recently as their cutie marks, the symbols of their roles and destinies, had been changed. But, thanks to Twilight and the bonds they'd forged with each other, they had undone that change and were back to normal.Magical mystery cure - Alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Twilight, right in the middle of the group hug, gave a long sigh of relief. She more than any of them had bared her share of pain throughout this time, mostly from the guilt she felt over her part in the event. For you see, it was her spell that had caused all this. A spell sent to her by her mentor, Princess Celestia, to try and solve as a part of her studies. Being the dutiful student she was, she tried

The winter months were a very special time throughout all of Equestria. Light snows fell gently every few days to create a picturesquely white wonderland as the temperature dropped to just below zero. The highlight of this wonderful season was the great celebration know as Winter Cheerstus. Every year, since the birth of Princess Celestia, the citizens of Equestria would celebrate the magical holiday. One of the best places to be during this special time is Ponyville. The residents here were well known for their festive spirit, and also threw the best parties. All around town there were decorations strung about from building to building. Each and every door had a specially crafted sun wreath hanging on it with lush, green spruce branches holding it all together along with colourful ornaments and baubles placed all over the streets. If the decorations were not enough to lure a pony out to Ponyville, than the shear scent wafting out from Sugarcube Corner would

Orion had run into the basement very quickly, confusing his guests. Bucky and Peach Cobbler both knew that when it came to Orion, trouble usually followed things like this. Whatever was going on in his head was most likely worth seeing, so the two Crusaders chased their friend into the former-lab. Where the basement once was the headquarters for Twilight Sparkle's scientific discoveries, it was not used as much as it once was and had now become more of an archive of data and experiments rather than an active station. Its purpose, however, did not alter the feeling of wonder and amazement the two ponies always experienced when rummaging through them. Shelf after shelf was filled to the brim with books of many colors and sizes and countless documents laid organized in drawers and bins before them. Regardless of the room's organization, there was not as much space left, but Twilight always refused to get rid of any

From behind a stunning cloud pillar jumps a multi-spectrum ball of rage. Rainbow Dash tackles the first colt in sight, slamming into him and laying down furious blows as she attempts to take the older pegasus down.
Caught off guard, the stranger flails about, unable to hit his tiny assailant as she lays into him. He cries out in pain as her small hoof connects with his head. In an urgent attempt to get away, he flaps his wings, powering into the sky. The angry filly falls from her victim and stands, poised ready for a fight.
"Hey look It's Rainbow Crash!" One calls, laughing.
"Come to have a go at us now that your little fillyfriend is safe?" One of the fillies, a tough looking youngster with a rugged black mane points a dark blue hoof at the cyan plush ball.

"Oops... I think bucked her too hard..." The bully grins.

The filly of her attention simply lies there. Completely out cold.
Lips quivering, tears falling from her eyes, Fluttershy trembles with fear and worry before she collapses. Burying her face in her friend's mane, she sobs brokenheartedly and holds her tight. Her heart sinks in her chest, as well as her body pretty much going numb. Just when things were going so well, just when things were going to be okay, this happens.

"That was some party, hmm?"
"It was very nice. We always have so much fun at Pinkie's parties."
"I think this one was the best yet. But you know what? I prefer the after parties. Less crowded."
Fluttershy sighed and settled herself more comfortably into Rainbow's embrace, allowing herself to take comfort from the other pegasus. She had never realized until the previous night how much she enjoyed having somepony with her. Even with all the animals sleeping around the house, she had always felt lonely in the hours after the sun had set, when she lay in bed thinking.
Rainbow smiled when she felt Fluttershy snuggle closer, feeling the warmth of the other pony against her. The light blue pegasus gazed at her marefriend, unconsciously brushing a stray piece of hair our of the shy ponies face. She found that it was hard to tear her eyes away, and even if she was able she wouldn't want to. Much like the previous night the moon shone through the window, lighting u

"She's got what now?" asked the currently bamboozled farmpony now distracted away from her apple bucking.
'They say it's got something having to do with too much magic usage causing eye strain. I am not a doctor so I suppose we will all just have to wait and hope if it nothing too severe. I do hope she will be alright." Rarity had a hint of worry in her voice. She was the one present in the library when she had come across a collapsed Twilight gripping her own head in her hooves as if it was in an unbearable pain. Spike was next to her trying to ask what was wrong with her when Rarity came in and immediately came to her aid. They both rushed her to the hospital, but Rarity and Spike were told that there are currently no visitors allowed as they are tending to their seemingly sick friend.

One day in Equestria at Ponyville, it seemed like a normal day.
"So Twilight is anything happening this week?" asked Spike a small purple dragon with green spikes, to a purple unicorn with purple eyes, purple hair with pink/purple stripes, and a spark surround by smaller sparks for a cutie mark.
"Not much from what I know Spike." Twilight Sparkle replied browsing through the books in her library."We should see what the others are doing in a bit."
Her friends Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rarity were probably going about their daily lives.
After awhile Twilight and Spike left the library to walk around Ponyville. At one point they were approached by a pink Earth pony with poofy dark pink hair, bright blue eyes, and three balloons for a cutie mark.

Twilight's regretShe had worked hard this week. As much as she'd grown used to it, she still felt tired at the end of every day. Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Equestria. It had been many years since she had ascended to the role of Princess, becoming an alicorn in the process, and still the change had never stopped shocking her. The level of magic she had been able to achieve since her transformation was astounding. And not only that, but ponies from far and wide came to view her as a teacher. It brought a smile on her face to see young colts and fillies come to ask her questions and learn from her. It reminded her very much of how she was when she was their age, learning from her own mentor.Twilight's regret2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But it was not merely new experiences that this title had afforded her. In her years since her coronation, she had also experienced many physical changes that came with being an alicorn.

"Wow, today sure was great, wasn't it Twilight!" said Spike as he walked up the stairs with Twilight. They were both getting ready to go to bed after a long day of having saved Equestria once again and needed a lot of sleep.
"I mean, we saved the Crystal Empire, you passed your test, and I'm a hero now!" he continued excitedly. "Bet you weren't expecting that, eh?"
"Oh Spike…" said Twilight laughing, "…you were always a hero to me!"
"I know, but isn't it, like, just awesome that I have my own stained glass window in honor of what I've done now?!"
"It does feel pretty good to be in one of the stained glass windows in the Canterlot Palace. Of course it's traditional to always make one when somepony…or dragon, saves the day."

Lightning illuminated the blackening sky in quick flashes, each bolt only holding its presence for the briefest of moments. In their wake, a resounding explosion of thunder shattered the peaceful night atmosphere, leaving the distinct anticipation for a downpour. Any pony in their right mind was inside, enjoying a book by the warm fire with their dragon friend, spending time with their younger sister in the family farmhouse, or, at the very least, staying home for the night with their pet alligator. The outside world became a less than desirable place during a pegasi-scheduled thunder storm, especially at night.
Unfortunately, not all ponies had a home, or even a family to take refuge with during such storms.
Another crack of lightning severed the sky like a pair of heavenly scissors, and in the deserted farmland of Sweet Apple Acres, a single pony huddled herself against the storm. Settled in a rickety old clubhouse located in the low branches of one particular tree, this young filly

Gilda the griffon, and old friend of Rainbow Dash, had been invited here to attend this party in her honour, thrown by Pinkie Pie. Although Pinkie was famous around Ponyville for parties of all sorts, the fact that she was willing to throw one for Gilda had come as a surprise for many, considering that they hadn't seemed to be on friendly terms during the latter's short time here. But as bad as things were between them, they seemed even worse now. For Gilda had been the victim of a number of practical jokes that had occurred throughout the evening. And even though the other ponies attending had laughed at the spectacle, Gilda did not.
