We all want to believe that everypony gets to live a happy life, but unfortunately, that's not the world we actually live in. Tagalong's story begins on a normal day like any other, his mother, Pam, rests in a maternity ward after giving birth to two foals,himself and Scootaloo, after six hours of labor.
However, she's not as excited as you'd think she'd be. Pam and her husband Aldous still have to deal their family's financial troubles. Pam was a confectionist and had to sell her bakery because of declining sales and rising rent prices. Aldous, who was an earth pony, was having difficulties holding down a job and was barely able to make ends meet to support the two of them, and now with two new foals, Manehattan would be a much more difficult and much less hospitable city to raise two newborns in.
~~A DECISION NOPONY SHOULD HAVE TO MAKE~~
Just days after the birth of their new twins, Aldous and Pam return home and try to plan for their ine

It was late in the morning as Paradox and Mercury crossed the fields of Sweet Apple Acres to meet up with their colleagues. Since it was the weekend, most of the town's citizens took the day off. But in their minds, there were some things more important than a holiday.
"I keep getting the feeling that this won't be an easy project," the stallion said to his best friend.
"Is anything ever easy?" she asked simply.
As the two doctors trotted through the orchard, they encountered a young yellow filly, staring blankly off into space.
"Apple Bloom?" Dee said, approaching the Crusader. "Are you alright?"
"Huh?" She asked, turning to face the pegasus. Her unusual eyes throwing the filly off for a second. "Oh, I was just watching some...thing..." She pointed to the branches of a tree that was sitting in front of her.
Sure enough, the two elder ponies saw, in the trees, two tiny birds, one yellow, one purple, standing together on a branch. T

The air was warm, the sun was shining, and everypony in Ponyville was having a glorious day. The town square was bustling and crowded and busy ponies filled the streets. All the pony folk seemed to have somewhere specific to be. All except Rainbow Dash; her place was in the sky. She tore freely through the air, speeding one way and the next, buzzing the tree tops and racing the wind. The blue pegasus swooped over a schoolyard, much to the delight of the children, then climbed several hundred feet and dove, streaking downward as fast as she could. Seconds before hitting the ground, her wings flew open and she pulled up back into the clear blue. Rainbow felt alive.
Suddenly, Dash remembered that she had somewhere to be; she was

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.
Trixie's head snapped up and he

Chapter 4: A day at the beach
Being a member of the weather ponies wasn't an easy job although most of the ponies didn't know it. For most citizens it was only natural that the sky was already prepared for the daily weather when the sun announced the beginning of a new day. Moreover pushing fluffy and light clouds or bringing little rain clouds didn't look difficult either for them. It seemed trivial and so most ponies didn't even pay much attention to the sky and when they saw Rainbow Dash napping they just thought the Pegasus mare was being lazy again. The truth however was the completely opposite.
Although the main weather for all of Equestria was planned by the weather factory in Cloudsdale each country had to made their own plans of how to organize the weather of their country. Sunny days, a little storm and even rainbows had to be planned and organized by the captain of each country's weather team. For Ponyville this task was part of Rainbow Dash's job. At the beginning of

Learning to Smile
I was a child of stones
A daughter of the rock farmers
No joy was known there
But gloom and endless working
Under the hot, blazing sun
The barren fields, all without green
Granites were our flowers
Our grass made of sand and gravel
I breathed the choking air on the wordless world
I walked on soil bare of seeds
In a poor family among rocks
A child was born with a bright mane
Pink coat in colorless home
Such a punchline in a grey world
Gathered rocks in silence
Aching hooves our pay for a hard work
Dust on my eyes and throat
I dreamed of world out of my life
I breathed the choking air on the wordless world
I walked on soil bare of seeds
Throughout the days I gazed repressed at hollow skies
A solace for indifference
The tremor passed over our farm

Donnie could only watch in horror as his body tensed, shaking with pain. A pain that he was now beginning to feel. His breaths were growing shallower by the second, and his eyelids were fluttering uncontrollably, as if he was having a nightmare.
“It’s okay Donnie,” Leo repeated. He didn’t want his little brother to suffer anymore. It just wasn’t right.
Raph touched Leo’s shoulder, and they switched places, this Raph holding Donnie’s hand. “Hey, Donnie-boy,” Donnie’s body seemed relax at his brother’s voice, and for a moment the pain had left him. “You know I’m not so good with words. Heck, I’ve never been. But Donnie, you gotta listen to Leo,” Raph laughed weakly. “You hear me saying that? Me, of all people. But you gotta listen to Leo. You gotta let go little brother.”

The mechanical beast gave out a loud roar and stuck its neck high in the air. A blast of fire shot from its open maw, scorching the stone ceiling.
"Run. NOW!" Twilight shouted. The machine roared and lifted it two legs from the floor, the claws now extended straight in front. It then shot out another gout of fire and began to charge down the hall as its wheels moved. The ponies noticed how its tail was letting out even more steam.
The unicorn ran for the door at the other end of the stone hallway, her friends following her. When they made it to the heavy wooden door, Twilight Sparkle tried to push it open but she discovered it was locked. She pounded on it with her hooves. "Open up! Open up! You want the princess Megan to be killed or what?" There was no response.
Twilight Sparkle started to hit the door with her hammer, the tool barely leaving mere dents in it.
Rainbow Dash started to violently slash away at the door with her sword as wood chips sc

Sweet Apple Acres was always a beautiful place to be during spring. The grass was always greenest, the air was always sweeter, and the birds always seemed to sing their happiest. It was wonderful.
"I bet you can't catch me!" taunted Scootaloo.
"We'll see about that!" replied a determined Sweetiebell.
"You guys," Spike paused to take in a few breaths, "go on. I'll catch up." The little dragon was awfully tired. He wasn't exactly made for running all day, like a pony. The young dragon placed his hands onto his knees and tried to fill his lungs with air as quickly as he could. They seemed to burn with each breath.
As Spike panted, a little yellow filly came walking up beside him. She laid a hoof onto his shoulder, which caused him to look up at her. Instantly he noticed her crimson mane and the Cutie Mark Crusaders cape she was wearing, like the others.
"Are ya ok?" asked Applebloom.

The smell of sweat accompanied by jostling bodies and accomplished yells filled the Wonderbolts locker room, familiar to the fiery-maned mare who stood in the center of it all, a wide grin on her face. Seeing her teammates so excited after a successful practice session was one of her favorite parts about being the captain of the Wonderbolts. She knew the feeling of accomplishment that came with pulling off a particularly tough trick or sticking a landing after a daring dive, and she loved when her teammates--- her family--- felt the same joy... Even the more boastful ones.

Fleetfoot snorted, nipping Tyco's tail and provoking a rather high-pitched yelp from the large pony. "Fatfoot? Really?" She rolled her

The man had slightly longer than average brown hair and deep unusually attracting ocean blue eyes that anyone would get lost in.

I say goodbye, as now I fall.
You've shown me pain, sadness and fear.
It cut me deep, bled out my cheer.
But still I laughed, as though to hide,
The gaping hole, my heart reside.
I wore a mask of borrowed cheer
to hide behind, to cover my fear
For I thought, I hoped, a prayer
that once I'll be, a happy mare.
But so it is not and never shall be.
The impossible wish, crushed within me
Ground to dust, from hooves to head.
It pours on out through tears I shed.
I can't go on, this pain I hide,
I've given up, can't keep inside.
So now I fall, and now I die
For though I laugh, Inside I cry...

#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

"It has to be this way... it has to..."
The studious unicorn known as Twilight Sparkle was within the library which she called home, rummaging around through a series of books. A few of these books were on history, such as ancient ponies who had influenced Equestria in its early days. The ones closer to her though, those that one would for the most part be unable to see, had to deal with various aspects of pony health. Her current tome to scrutinize was one called Equine Emotions: Psychological Studies on the Mind, skimming through each of the pages. Just for research. Never knew when it could come in handy.
She had hoped they would come in handy. The reference guide hadn't told her much else. Would she get hints here? Something that would show her what she wanted? So far nothing to explicitly state outright, but it was giving her hints, ideas. What to do for her plan.
No pony's even ever tried, have they? They
