PonyCraft: IntroOnce upon a time in the magical land of Equestria, the older of the regal sisters of the land came into contact with a mysterious group of visitors from afar. These visitors were not of pony-kind, so she initially feared them. However, the leader of these people soon quelled these fears by offering her a way of aiding her kingdom. Seeing how she had to banish her own sister to inside the moon for a thousand years, the princess realized it would be near impossible to handle the burden of the entire kingdom as well as the sun and moon by herself. So, she accepted the offer.PonyCraft: Intro4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The visitors spent a year teaching her how to handle the responsibility of the moon on top of her duty of the sun, as well as gathering crystals that they claimed to be from other worlds. They also taught the princess how to infuse powerful energy into said crystals, promising them to be important for helping the ponies of Equestria thrive. However,

Explaining the Cake family's geneticsTitle: A dissertation on the hypothetical genetics of the Cake familyExplaining the Cake family's genetics4 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
There has been dissension among the ranks of bronies as to whether the Cake parents, who are Earth ponies, could produce a pair of fraternal twins with one being a pegasus and the other a unicorn, given only one distant ancestor carried a single representative phenotype of each on either side.
I have developed a plausible pattern of inheritance to explain this seeming incongruity.
Let's say that pegasi and unicorns were genetically designed, using earth pony as the genetic base, by the alicorns playing god on the mythical continent of Atlantis. The easiest way to add the genes to the earth ponies would be to design an artificial chromosome carrying all the needed genes. Then this chromosome's expression could be triggered by a special transcription factor integrated elsewhere in the genome, likely tied via a promoter to other developmental genes. My bet is the BMP-Bcat-Wnt

"Bml mblph." Rainbow Dash curled up into a tighter ball, nestling her snout between her front hooves.
"How in tarnation did you even manage to fall asleep in a barrel?" A hoof shook the pegasus by the shoulder. "C'mon, wakey wakey."
"Spitfire, watch out," Dash mumbled, her tail flicking.
Applejack took a deep breath as she grabbed hold of the top of the barrel and leaned over the edge. "RAINBOW DASH!"
The cyan pony yelped and kicked her legs out, bursting the barrel open in all directions like a blooming flower. The wide metal ring formerly supporting the barrel's rim came to rest around her neck as she glared up at the unwelcome alarm clock. "What the hay, Applejack?!"
"Ah thought you were s'posed to clear the clouds this morning, on account of the royal visit?"
"Yeah. And I did." Rainbow Dash rubbed the sleep from one eye with the back of a hoof and gestured up at the clear, blue sky with the other.

Teamwork is Magic Chapter 4Leave it to Rarity to find a place for fashion in a war zone. The elegant unicorn couldn't let her friends just waltz onto the battlefield without looking the parts they played. While the weapons were being modified, she took it upon herself to modify some spare clothes to create uniforms that matched the classes. Everyone matched with some differences necessary due to differing biologies, but she was proudest of her work with Pinkie, turning Ponyville's Premier Party Pony into a spitting image of the Russian Mercenary.Teamwork is Magic Chapter 44 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Twilight looked around as she walked down the old roads of Ponyville. On occasion she missed the large cityscape of Canterlot . Though Ponyville was indeed nice, with it's own charm, she could not escape that feeling of homesickness, the hustle and bustle of the city, the millions of ponies of all shapes and sizes, the buildings stretching into the clouds. She missed it. And yet, she had never been out of the city before her trip here. Canterlot and Ponyville were the only homes she knew."Perhaps all I need is a change of scenery." She mumbled to herself. "Ponyville is beginning to feel a little small."
The purple unicorn was shaken from her thoughts by a large boom. Something blue hurtled from the sky, leaving a trail of smoke in it's wake. It collided with something in the distan

Twilight Sparkle's smile was nearly as huge as the celestial body she'd just managed to teleport herself to. Barely able to contain her giddiness, she levitated her communicator out of her saddle bag and spoke into it.
"Mission Control, this is Sparkle One, do you copy? Over."
Some time passed before the communicator crackled to life, and a reply was heard. "Huh? Twilight, is that you? What's a 'Sparkle One?'"
Twilight giggled and sighed. "Oh, Spike. Sometimes I swear you have no sense of atmosphere. But we'll chat about that later. The spell was a success! Mission accomplished! I'm here!"

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

The Cute Mark Clash, Chapter 1
The town of Ponyville.
A lovely settlement in the Equestrian country; home to ponies of all shapes, sizes, and walks of life. Life in Ponyville is as complicated as you want it to be. If you want to be a cowpony, rising with the sun and bucking apples, you're free to do so. If you want to be on the cutting edge of fashion and task yourself with clients and deadlines in exchange for profit and esteem, you can be accommodated. The cornerstone of Ponyville life is love, respect, and knowing the value of friendship.
That last characteristic is what forced one Twilight Sparkle to depart her Canterlot home and is what made her stay. She is no less the knowledge-hungry bookworm and on this particularly fine day, has a full itinerary to work through. She departs the Ponyville library, a hollowed-out tree which doubles as her home, followed closely by her baby dragon assistant Spike. She planned for so much that her night

the words you hear are in my head.
I say, I said my name is Fred,
and I've been... very naughty.
The story I'm about to tell,
I tell you, I will tell you well,
Is of my dear aunt Muriel,
and just how I've been... naughty.
Voila the farm. My aunt lives here,
with precious pup, and husband dear.
My heart beats fast as I drew near,
I feel so nice... and naughty.
I thought just how excited they,
must be that I would come today,
they'd shout "come Fred! huzzah! hooray!
Dear boy you look so... naughty."
That's when my tired eyes beheld,
a doggy dog, like dog, he smelled,
D-O-G, is what he spelled,
and that's how I spell... naughty.
Alone was I, with tender Courage,
and all his fur, his furry furrage,
which, I say, did encourage,
me, to be... quite naughty.
Courage... your hair...
it reminds me of the first time I knew just how,
I felt, about hair.
It was a day, I'd not forget,
the day that I first met my pet,
oh what a lovely gift to get,
I'd never felt so..

She panted, heart pounding as she stood in the center of town. She could hear the blood coursing through the veins in her ears, sounding like the roar of a distant ocean. Her mind was numb, barely registering where she was or that she was covered with a sticky red substance, the pungent scent of copper filling the air. Her eyes slowly fell to an object on the ground: a stained knife that glinted in the midday sun. Next to it was a growing red pool. Her eyes trained on the pool and slowly moved to its source.
The deed had been done.
Luna's Moon hung high above Equestria, its gentle rays bathing the countryside in an eerie glow as it slowly trekked across the cobalt-hued sky. Near Ponyville, the light illuminated a lone figure winging somewhat less gracefully than normal above the town. It was very late and she was exhausted, but Rainbow Dash didn't ca

A few fragmentary records exist, although those in the hands of reasonable, scholarly institutions are mostly copies of copies. Not much is known about this age, except that humanity spread itself out through the stars via technological means, and that humanity's control over the material universe became almost godlike. Indeed, the Old God Motlogu claims that it and the other gods are humans or other sapients originating from this era and avoided its fall.A Brief History of Humanity2 years ago in Settings More Like This

Waiting for him to return,
The sun rises and sets,
Watching the seasons turn,
The sun heats up the concrete pavement beneath my paws,
The leaves turn brown and die,
The snow covers the Earth in a cold white sheet,
The baby bluebirds fly through the afternoon sky,
Growing old and tired,
Years painfully passing by,
Forgetting old memories,
Still waiting for you to return to my side,
Missing you terribly,
Wanting you back in my life,
A dog without a master,
Is like a war without strife.
