As the crowd cheered, confetti rained down after the judge claimed the victim "Not Guilty". Just another successful trial for Phoenix Wright.
July 22nd, 3:15 am
"Yeah, woohoo!" Phoenix mumbled in his sleep. Unfortunately, he rolled out of bed, waking him from his dream. Phoenix sighed, getting off the floor, "Aw man, so I didn't really use my awesome attorney skills to beat Edgeworth again?" He dejectedly clambered back into bed, hoping he'd be able to catch a few more hours of sleep. His dream was a bit weirder this time.
"So, you are the one called Phoenix Wright?"
"Phoenix Wright, defender of the innocent and upholder of justice!" he replied, proud and confident, even when speaking to disembodied voices in his sleep.
"Then follow me." Suddenly, a tall, four legged creature appeared by the edge of Phoenix's vision, but the dream was so dark that it was impossibl

The task was done
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

"Why did you bring me here, anyway?" Phoenix inquired, deciding that he might as well get to the point.
"Because you're a defense attorney, of course." Celestia replied. "I, well, someone who I know, requires your skills."
"So, you want me to defend someo- er, somepony?" Phoenix said.
"Exactly. The trial is tomorrow. I will give you the details on the way to Ponyville"." Celestia walked through an archway out of the high tower room that led to a staircase.
"Wait, TOMORROW!?" Phoenix blurted out. "You've summoned me to a brightly colored world where horses TALK, and tell me that I need to be able to defend someone in court THE NEXT DAY!?"
"I believe you mean ponies, and... well, it WAS on short notice.." Celestia mumbled sheepishly, turning and heading down the staircase. "Follow me."
"Oh, this is going to be fun..." Phoenix thought to himself a

For the second time in 6 years Equestria found itself in a war between the New Lunar Republic and Solar Empire. This time a 3rd party; the Legion of Discord was thrown in. Both the NLR and SE fought each other as well as the LoD in a war that lasted 6 months, and almost resulted in the end of Equestria and all other lands as we knew them.
The first war started 4 years after the return of Princess Luna. Both her and Princess Celestia ruled over Equestria peacefully at first. But after a period of time Luna started disapproving of how Celestia was ruling the land, viewing some of it as almost tyrannical. Tensions started rising between the two sisters again, and between the citizens of Equestria, who were also viewing Equestria's rule under the Solar Empire the same way.
It finally came to a head when Celestia announced some new laws at a Parliament meeting. Luna bluntly objected, angering Celestia. A fight broke o

They say that time heals all wounds. But that's not true. Sometimes, time only causes the wound to festerto become infected and burn with the fire of loss.
I have told this story at least a hundred times. And every time is like opening the wound afresh and squeezing a lemon into it. So now, I write it down on paper so that those who wish to hear the tale may read of it. For I will never tell this story again.
It was the year 1903, and Dust roared across the vast farm fields of Missouri. In those days, I was the head of a small family owned farm in a rural community. The summer had been hot and dry and a particularly severe drought had parched the land. That morning, I arose before sunrise, as was my habit, and started down the creaking stairs from the bedroom to the kitchen. I was thinking the same thoughts I'd been thinking all week: if we didn't get some rain soon, we were going to lose that year's corn crop, and if that happened, we would probably lose the farm.

#73) My best bro and I have been bronies for a while now. I would never bring up being a brony on purpose to anyone who didn't know. But now we're doing a project in Literature class, and my friend is doing his on how he became a brony. I don't think it's a good idea. In fact, I find it embarrassing. What should I do?
Answer: This is something that seems to happen reasonably often people become big fans of "Friendship is Magic", and then fancy teaching the world to sing by shedding light on it in a class. And while you could argue that older individuals liking the show is an interesting point of observation, it's not particularly academic (not in terms of literature, at least) and so a presentation on it doesn't seem appropriate in general for that type of class.
It might be because I'm in the UK, but I know for a fact that if I presented on MLP in one of my university seminars I wouldn't be taken seriously by the teacher or the students. We tend to do

#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

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

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

The three ponies stood there in the back room of the boutique while Twilight Sparkle scrambled to come up with anything which could be considered an answer.
However, Rainbow Dash gave her no time to answer, continuing to pile on questions, each one stabbing at Twilight with more sharp pain than any knife could ever produce.
"Why are you here?"
"What do you want?
"Can't you see Rarity and I are busy?"
Twilight, immediately regretting her intrusion, was still unable to speak. It was Rarity who broke through the awkward silence.
"Um Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle? Is something the matter?"
Rainbow answered first, "No."
Twilight finally managed to squeak out a few words to explain her presence.
"No I mean yes I mean . everything's fine. I've come to talk to Rainbow Dash about something she needs help with. You see---"
"Oh, no," Rainbow Dash thought. There was no way she was going to let Twilight tell the whole world what she had shared with her. She interrupted befor

A traitor discovered"SISTER!!!"A traitor discovered7 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Luna rushed forward as her elder sister, Celestia, fell to the ground. Just in time, she caught her before she collided with the stone ground on the balcony. She could not believe what she had just seen. Celestia had erected a powerful shield around the entire city, using some of the most potent magic Luna had ever witnessed. And with one attack, Sombra had shattered it. Smashed it apart as though it were nothing more than paper. Luna's expression bore a look of dismay and horror over this. Looking down, she saw her sister began to stir and regain consciousness over the shock of having her spell broken.
"What......what happened?" Celestia asked.
Luna felt no joy in explaining what happened.
"Sister.....Sombra has broken your spell. The city is unguarded!"
That snapped Celestia back to attention as her eyes widened with surprise. She knew her son was powerful, but for him to possess the kind of power to shatter her shield in one blow. That was a magic she'd never seen him us

The Nightmare Moon incident.
As we're told in the prologue of the first episode, everything was great until Luna didn't feel loved and decided to take the throne from Celestia to bring about night eternal. We are told that Celestia tried to reason with Luna and that Luna would not listen. The problem could have been prevented had Celestia stopped trying to “reason” with her sister and actually done something to alleviate the issue. Of course, Since she and Luna know each other so well, it is not unreasonable to think that Celestia could have seen the issue coming and “reasoned” before Luna got to the point of desperation and turned. Sadly, all that we are told is that Celestia only tried to “reason” with Luna and ended up putting her kingdom in jeopardy. Luna is not guiltless in this matter, but Celestia could have prevented the issue with minor effort. Effort

It was spring in Canterlot, winter had just been cleaned and so that meant that it was also time to clean out old rooms and basements. Royalty was no execption.
Princess Celestia along with a few maids were down in her basement clearing out and cleaning old things. Celestia had just put away an old toy from when her and Luna where small fillies when a maid called out.
"Oh Princess! Over here"
"Yes, what is it?" Celestia asked as she made her way over to the maid, she then saw what the young maid was pointing at, an old mirror that was cracked and clouded with age.
"Is it magical, Princess?" the young maid inquired
"I'm not too sure, but I do know how to find out." Princess Celestia smiled and used her magic to pick the mirror out of the clutter and set in the open
"Have this sent to my faithful student in Ponyville, Twilight Sparkle"

The ReflectedA few weeks since their creation the little foals in Ponyville had grown up rather fast and unexpectedly, this threw Twilight Sparkle in a fit of study to try and understand it with Shylight, Twilight Sparkles and Flutters 'daughter', close at her side to help. If you listened closely you could hear the whispers of other ponies about these young foals or 'The Reflected' as they had been named. Parody the 'daughter' of bouncy Pinkie Pie and the seamstress Rarity, was ignorant to the way she and the others were viewed and loved any and all attention. Shylight seemed to ignore it as well, focused on her studies and animals she helped care for. Derpy and Doctor Whooves little filly Time Loop was too busy hopping through time doing her best to help other ponies to hear the whispers. Every other pony from the mirror was busy or if they heard the whispers kept to themselves, all except what seemed to be Appledash, or that's what she deduced.The Reflected1 year ago in Sketches More Like This
