Chapter Six: Comfort
Smokey set a towel wrapped around a chunk of snow upon Fluttershy's forehead to help reduce the fever. Even though the pegasus' shuddering body revolted against having anything cold touch her, she knew it was what she needed to fight the fever. Her painkiller had worn off and the dull throbbing in her hoof added to her misery.
The dragon retrieved another pain pill and a glass of water for her. "Here you are, Miss Fluttershy. Another painkiller for your hoof."
Removing the makeshift ice pack from her forehead, Fluttershy slowly sat upright. She accepted the proffered capsule and swallowed it down with the glass of water. Handing it back to the reptile, she snuggled back under the covers and replaced the cold press on her head.
"I'll go out and get you some medicine right away." Smokey brushed Fluttershy's cheek with the backs of his index and middle fingers. He wasn't too fon

Leo got up, walking over to the window to close it, locking the latch in place to keep the window closed, both to keep out the snow and to keep out unwelcome guests. He padded slowly back to his seat, feeling slightly exposed now.
Unknown to him, a shadow was gliding on the ceiling, stalking him as he padded to his couch.
Leo sat down slowly, picking up his book once again and starting to read once more, still completely unaware of the shadow on the ceiling. Oh sure, he could feel prickling all over his back, and his ears were twitching, but there were no other signs that he was aware.
The shadow grinned, well aware that he was ignorant of its

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 that were surrounding it. As expected the servants were already asleep, what was a good thing because I would not like them to smell that odor. Slowly it started to become a very annoying burden for my sensitive senses. My own steps sounded surprisingly loud on the wooden floor while I moved towards the public bath, which was in the lower section of

As the Wheel Turns
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 once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.

#104) Aren't bronies and furries the exact same thing? I think it's funny that so many bronies get offended when they're compared to furries. I don't see furries getting quite as offended about the comparison. Hah.
Answer: This is really the million-dollar question: are bronies and furries the same thing? The answer is, awkwardly, a little bit of both. Let's set the cards upon the table: there are all sorts of variables that come into the equation when defining exactly what a brony is. That's the first difficulty; if a brony is merely an adult watching the show, then you can't effectively argue that they're furries by definition just for doing that. If you did, then any parent watching the show with their child, or anyone who watched "Watership Down" or "The Animals of Farthing Wood" as children, or myriad other cartoons about animals, would be furries, which is ludicrous.
Just watching "Friendship is Magic" doesn't create a latent association with furries, despite what s

A certain pegasus flew back into Ponyville to find the entire town completely deserted. She flew all around, obviously checking the homes of her friends. Twilight’s Golden Oaks Library was all books and no ponies, every dessert in Sugarcube Corner was left untouched by Pinkie Pie, Sweet Apple Acres had no work of Applejack’s done, the Carousel Boutique had no Rarity for all those dresses, and Fluttershy’s cottage didn’t have a single living thing even living there.
Once Rainbow Dash checked everywhere else, she did find one caped figure standing in front of the town square. Next to the figure was a life sized statue of Rainbow Dash, but it was wearing a helmet, a red cape with a golden zipper, red strap on and a cloud making a yellow lightning bolt on it, and four golden gauntlets with tiny white wings for each hoof of the statue. The helmet and gauntlets were rainbow colored and had golden coverings to assure they were made of metal.
Once she flew close enough,

Anthem (Memory of the Empire)
Children of the Perished Empire…
The crystal spike
Emerged in the northern sky.
From thousand years of sleep
Woken the empire of past,
The world once perished and gone.
It looms in the north…
The echoes of cold dominance.
The king, the tyrant reborn
Waiting his renewed chance
To finish what had begun…
Drifting shells of the realm…
What's there… left… to protect…
What's left are filled with hurt and grief.
'Twas graying and tarnished,
The world they once called their home.
Despair and fear,
Tokens of slavery,
Left within the heartcells
In the lost, orphaned souls of the empire…
… Stand up by your own feet.

Rainbows Can Be Lonely Too
By: DolphinBuster starring: Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy
I held in a growl watching Fluttershy panic in fear as she tried another loop. That pegasus is such a scaredy pony. It had been just about the same thing for the past hour or so. I'd demonstrate the trick Fluttershy would try, she'd panic, fall down, and whimper how sorry she was for failing. She's a pony that you can't seem to stay mad at, but she could be really aggravating at times, though.
Seriously though, I shouldn't be complaining. I was the one that had taken a day off weather duty to spend some time with Fluttershy and teach her a trick or two. But all she seemed to learn so far was a half loop, and how to fall without breaking anything.
Fluttershy sat on the ground, shaking her mane to cover her face. She was obviously embarrassed.
"Its okay, Fluttershy. You put in a great effort. It just takes practice." I had to hold back a choke at grea

Above me I see the sky
I observe its wonders
My heroes' paths which to follow
I'll walk on the highest clouds
Where the rainbows were created
Not carried on back
But by my own strength
One day I will fly
One day my wings embrace the sky
I'll ride the wind and rise high to the clouds
I'll rise and make my path
My mark on the Heaven's Vault
Dreaming I plan my ways
The deeds I'll fulfill
When older I can reach the sky
Determined growing heart
Will train for the future
Friends by my side
My wings will raise my dreams
One day I will fly
One day my wings embrace the sky.
Follow my heroes and carve my own path
Carried by dreamer's wings
I'll soar in the Heaven's Vault.

It was a beautiful sunny day in Ponyville, an absolutely perfect day. An overall great day to be doing things in the great outdoors. Breezy, warm, the birds singing, flowers alive with life, it was wonderful.
To be outside, this was especially the case for two of Ponyville's residents. Two pegasi, out in the middle of a field near a willow tree, on a red and white checkered blanket, having a picnic. All kinds of food was strewn about for their little lunch, along with a thermos of fruit punch.
Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash were together on a little date, just sitting out having a picnic together. On the grass nearby, their pets, Angel and Tank, were just happily grazing along and doing their thing. So while it was also a little playdate for their pets, it was a very special date for them too.
Having gone to fetch something from a secondary picnic basket, Rainbow Dash produced a big white box from it, to which Fluttershy curiously watched to see what it was. Only to be told to turn around

"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 shivered as a cold gust of wind swept over me, pulling me out of my slumber. I blinked my eyes a few times and let out a quiet yawn. I was still tired but, I was really comfortable. Fluttershy and I were still cuddled up with each other, but she was still sleeping. I wiped my eyes with my free hoof and took a look over to Fluttershy to make sure she was alright.
Fluttershy seemed fine. She felt a little cold but, she was fine. I must've shielded her from the wind from the night. Thank, Celestia for that. I would hate for Fluttershy to get sick and not only because of that, but because it would make the trip back home more a pain as its already going to be. My leg was still feeling soar and so was the rest of my body. That tree really took its toll on me, and Fluttershy too.

Smokey ceased dragging the mattress once it was positioned in front of the fireplace--at a safe distance from the flames, of course. He groaned deeply and gripped the fang wound stinging his arm, which was coated in his dark red blood, and it continued to seep the liquid of life. Adrenaline spiked by the need to tend to his wounds, he scurried into the bathroom. He returned with the familiar bottle of iodine held horizontally between his jaws and a white towel pressed against the bottom row of bite marks on his arm.
The section of bottle in Smokey's jaw became lubricated with his saliva, enabling it to easily slip from his slick-surfaced teeth as he plopped down on his bottom several feet away from the bathroom's doorway. "Oh!" the dragon groaned in frustration as the bottle escaped his mouth and rolled away out of his reach.

The two competitors stood once more on opposite ends of the arena, facing each other. This time it was clear that Fluttershy was feeling more confident in herself. Her lance quivered slightly as she did her best to line it up to her fillyfriend.
The party pony blew the horn with gusto, desperately trying to distract from the encroaching darkness.
Dash immediately takes the initiative, charging towards her fillyfriend. She quickly aims her lance, getting it almostly perfectly on target.
Nervous, Fluttershy squeaked, but decided to at least try. 'I don't want to disrespect her...but I know she doesn't want to lose... I can do this...I have to give it my all! ...Then again...I do deserve this after what I did to her when she wanted to see the dragon migration....'
Closing her eyes, the frightened pegasus galloped forward, lance quivering like a branch getting blowin in the wind.
Sure enough, Fluttershy was knocked

Beads of cold sweat rolled down Rainbow Dash's neck. The hot ceiling lights above intensifying the anxiety she felt to such a point that she felt as though she was going to pass out. There she was, standing in the middle of Ponyville's largest store. Her eyes were wide, staring at the newest piece of fan-merchandise being sold.
No, it wasn't anything to do with the Wonderbolts.
It was a limited-time offer Daring Do wallet. Rainbow Dash had to keep her mouth shut to prevent drooling. The wallet was grey and had adventurer's face printed on the front, grinning competitively at some invisible foe. She was a force to be reckoned with, even as just a picture. Hilariously, based on how she looked out of the wallet, Rainbow Dash felt like she was the foe- her hero's ruby eyes piercing into her own like arrows in bows, primed to fire.

The Costume Shop: Twilight Sparkle(28/30)You have just arrived to a brand new costume shop. It was heavily advertised as being "able to get you into character," their commercials showing animated people turning into whatever costume they put on, essentially becoming that form. They retained memory and all, and it was a big push for quality costumes. Business was generally very good for a while. The advertising team wanted to use SFX to have real people become the costumes, as a test showed that people would enjoy actual people and would sell costumes better. With business on the decline, they had no choice but to go for that advice. However, all SFX teams who were able to do it were much to expensive, leaving the store in a jam. Luckily, they found a someone willing to do it for free, granted they used the costumes he had hand made. He would also need his own space in the store for the filming, which the store agreed too. The man set up his area in the back of the store, along with a closet for the costumes to be used.
