Chapter 1: How Could You Be So Wrong, Twilight?
Books and scrolls littered the floor of Ponyville’s library, leaving only a small path for Twilight to walk through. At the epicenter of the organized chaos was the unicorn herself, glancing between a large, old book and a partially finished chalk drawing on the ground. Occasionally she moved to a large stack of books detailing old languages and flipped through them, mumbling to herself as she cross-referenced symbols and details to a piece of parchment. After several more walks between her references and the near crumbling book she was so focused on, she grinned and took a piece of chalk with her magic.
“Now... I need to draw these runes just right...” Twilight said to herself, tracing an intricate pattern into the floor of the library. Beads of sweat were starting to form on her brow, from the concentration she was putting into the small piece of chalk scraping along the floor. Just a little more... she thought,

The Muffin Queen
Like yeast in dough, I rose up high.
But soon, I ceased to fly.
Soon I was caked in my own demise.
Baked into this pastry disguise.
But thou hath set me free.
With a bite, munch, crunch. 1, 2, 3.
I hath been set free, but thou hath consumed me.
Not 1 but 2.
Mine own eyes seeing only what be in front of thee.
My simple plea?
To escape from this catacomb that surrounds me.
Oh, Silly mare.
With your eyes drooping and your heart beating.
Your bags filled with letters and your mind in gutters.
Wings of grey.
A mane like sunshine.

Yuuka, a new member of Lune, together with her partner, Byakomon, a white fox digimon. Despite just joining, she, along with other members of Lune, as well as the other organisations, were asked to combat whatever was threatening the Astra dorm located in the Digital World.
Yuuka: "Is this your home Byakomon?"
Byakomon: "I can't remember anything, and I hatched in your world as well."
They were informed of what the black mass of fog were capable of; shapeshifting into the worst fears of anyone. However Yuuka was determined to face it, if she performs well on her first mission in Lune, it might give her higher recognition, probably enough to get more information of where her "other" friend might be.
At first Yuuka tried to follow some of the other members, but eventually she herself got lost inside the damaged Astra structure.
Byakomon: "Yuu-chan, its coming."
Yuuka: "Yeah, I think I see it..."
In front of them, a black mass of fog was slowly approaching them.

"Anyways Pinkie, are you ready for this? This is an exciting day for Ponyvile; after last year's heated contest between two athletic and competitive ponies, the mayor decided that we should host this contest every year!" Spike was almost jumping out of his seat. He enjoyed contests, but he loved contests between the two ponies that were competing against each other this day.
"You're right Spike, this year's competitors are the same as last year's. Apparently no one really wanted to compete against these two, and who can blame 'em? Without further ado let's introduce our competitors, Ms. Rainbow Dash and Ms. App

Spring was in full swing for the land of Equestria. Throughout the town of Ponyville, All of the citizens were enjoying the beautiful weather. Whether it was from working in the fields to relaxing at the park, they all basked in the warmth of Princess Celestia's sun. At Sweet Apple Acres, it was just another day of bucking apples from the many trees that covered the farm. Near the giant red barn, an apple tree shook and its apples fell from it into a yellow bucket. An orange mare with golden yellow hair, a brown Stetson hat, and emerald green eyes stood with a tired, but proud look smiled at the full bucket. The orange mare, Applejack, took the bucket and made her way out of the orchards. She made her way into the barn, where many more buckets of apples laid there scattered. She placed the bucket amongst one of the few empty spaced, and made her way out. She

"Happy is he among men upon earth who has seen these mysteries!
It is generally accepted among historical scholars that the cult of Demeter and Persephone, or Kore, existed in Greece and the surrounding Mediterranean islands long before the traditional Olympian gods became entrenched. Her origins are Cretan . Like Aphrodite, the mother and daughter goddess represent a matriarchal form of fertility worship in the forms of crops and nature, and through this the cycle of birth, growth and death. This myth, however, has taken hold of imaginations from its evolutions into the Eleusinian mysteries of Ancient Greece, to the paintings of Victorian Europe, to today, each with their own distinctive takes and emphases on the story. Perhaps it is the fact that we know so little about the original tale of Persephone the daughter of Demeter, goddess of fertility, snatched
Why I am a BRONYWhy I am a BRONY3 years ago in Letters More Like This
This is a message to all brony/pony haters.
I'm noticing a lot of brony hate around, which is predictable. Every fandom that gets mega-popular will have the self-proclaimed 'rebels' who decide to hate the fandom AND the fan base based on a just few unsavory fans.
This narrative is a means of explaining a few things that many brony haters may have not realized, or overlooked. It is NOT a device to 'convert' those who don't like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is NOT to put down pony haters, or people who dislike bronies. Not every person can like every fandom. We are all entitled to our own likes and dislikes, it's what makes us human. This is merely an explanation of why and how I became a brony, and why it's terribly ignorant to hate a fandom because of a portion of fans. But first of all...
I saw someone the other day proclaiming that bronies are going to 'ruin the show' for children in the future, when those children grow up and 'realize that thei

Rainbow Dash and Derpy are flying home after a sending off party for Applejack, who was heading to a rodeo competition. Applejack had promised to earn money to pay for repairs to the main hall, which Derpy had been the one to damage of course. In fact at the event, Derpy continued to make things worse and worse, giving Rainbow Dash an extremely hard time. She was still upset about it, and it showed on her face as she flew. Derpy looked over at her, realizing that Rainbow Dash was mad, but she wasn't quite sure why yet. She thought about it as they flew, ignoring the clouds that she passed through, until she had a thought about why. She had hurt Rainbow Dash a few times at the event, and she must be upset over it. She wasn't sure, so she decided to ask. "Rainbow Dash?"
Rainbow Dash doesn't even look over, as she says in a deep and annoyed tone, "What?"
Derpy cringes under her tone and bites her lower lip, not even wanting to ask anymore. But she builds

Chapter Five: Soaring Wonder
Rainbow Dash awoke to the sound of knocking outside her cloud home. Slowly opening her eyes, she judged that it was early morning by the lack of bright sunlight streaming from her window. Dash tried to sink beneath her magenta-colored sheets and mentally willed for the knocker to go away. Silence . . .? Nope, more knocking. Horse-apples.
"This had better be good," the pegasus muttered as she willed herself out of her comfortable cloud bed. In fact, most of the things in her home were just molded from clouds. Her bed, her night stand to the left. A large cloud chest in the far corner of the bedroom held her Gala dress and only a few articles of other clothing; Rainbow was certainly not one to want to get dolled up for most occasions.
All around her room, the walls were adorned with self-motivational posters and action posters starring her flying heroes, The Wonderbolts. Those awesome ponies made everything about 100% cooler in no time at

Chapter One: Apple Challenge
It was late morning for Ponyville. The warm, mid-autumn sun was still rising overhead as Applejack worked out in the apple orchards of Sweet Apple Acres. A light breeze wafted through the grass, carrying with it the wondrous smell of the orchard: the damp, nutrient-rich earth, the strong scent of the trees and, of course, the tantalizing aroma of the sweet, ripe apples waiting to be picked.
After a couple of days dedicated to raining in an attempt to fix a schedule mixup, it was nice that the Weather Team decided to make up for it by having today be very warm and sunny. The grass was still slightly damp with yesterday's rainfall, and it squelched a bit as Applejack made her way through the forest of apple trees. She didn't mind at all, though; she had gotten much dirtier from doing less than this, and she actually enjoyed doing this rather mundane task. The entire orchard was covered in dew drops, giving the place a brilliant, renewed lo

Chapter Four: Galloping Mind
When Applejack woke up, it took her all of three seconds to remember the horrible incident of the night. Somehow, she had actually talked in her sleep. The subject matter, however, was what really made her afraid. She had had that dream of Rainbow Dash again, and now it threatened to ruin her.
A monththat's how long she had been having the dream. It didn't always take place in the apple orchard, but the dream always involved the same things. Applejack would try to tell Rainbow Dash that she liked her, but would always clam up with nervousness at the last minute. Eventually, Dash would always succeed in breaking the confession out of her, and would then assure her that she felt the same way.
A complete and utter fantasy, Applejack would always tell herself. It was far too much to believe that Rainbow Dash would be that way, let alone have the same feelings for her. All they ever seemed to do was compete with eac

The two friends finally stopped laughing and sat up. Applejack tilted her hat a bit to keep the sun out of her eyes and grinned. "Ha! Thanks, Dash! That little race of ours was a heap of fun!"
Dash returned her grin. "It was your idea, though."
"Y'all still had to do it!"
"Well, how could I say 'no' to a challenge?"
Applejack laughed. "True. So, whatcha wanna do today?"
The pegasus thought for a bit. "Oh, that's right, I forgot to tell you! As I was clearing the clouds over Sugarcube Corner this morning, I was stopped by Pinkie Pie. She had asked if I was seeing you today; I told her I'd be dropping by your place when I was done with work."
Applejack continued her smile but raised an eyebrow. "Nice to know that ya premeditate your snoozes in my orchard."
Dash gave her a sheepish grin. "Heh, yeah. Anyway, she wanted me to tell you that she's hosting a slumber party at Sugarcube Corner tonight and that you're invited."

Chapter Three: Pinkie Pie's Potentially Precarious Party
Applejack placed her hat back on her head before making her way downstairs. Her bedroom was modesta worn wooden bed with rumpled green sheets and a wooden night stand beside it. The only other things in the room, which incidentally were the only items that would even give the impression that a female occupied the room, was a small closet for her clothes (her Gala dress the only one actually on a coat hanger) and a vanity mirror, which she only ever bothered to use to make sure her beloved hat was centered correctly and that her blond mane and tail wasn't so unruly that it would give Rarity a heart attack . . . although there were times she was rather tempted to do so.
Coming from a farm made one not all too concerned about one's appearance while working, nor did it mean that one spent a whole lot of time practicing the meticulously detailed rules of etiquette that the ever-so-punctual Rarity liked

Dear Princess Celestia,
I don't suppose I'll be writing you any more letters after this. Over the years I've said all there is to say about anything worth saying, and saying it again would be useless. Has it really been fifty years since you sent me to Ponyville? It seems like just yesterday I was meeting my friends for the first time, and we were battling with the Elements of Harmony to stop Nightmare Moon. Ah, those were the days. It's been years now since I've had the strength to go on those kinds of adventures. These days I need Spike to help me get up and down the stairs. I'm not as young as I once was.
I'm really writing this to make sure I haven't forgotten to say anything to you in my past letters. I'm very sorry I haven't been sending them as frequently, but I feel like I've already done all there is to do. I know there's always more to learn, but I can't always get out there and learn it. Most of the things I learn now come from books alone. Of course I still see my friend
Beggars and ChoosersAsami was leaning against the wall with her arms crossed over her chest as she watched the people mill around Central City Station. There were the usual street urchins running around and getting in everyone's way, pretending to bump into people to slip their hands into pockets and filch a few yuans. There were the beggars and cons standing on the corners with patches over their eyes and faking tubercular coughs. There were sharply dressed rising business men rushing from work to their apartments for a quick lunch. This sort of crowd usually didn't draw her attention. She had seen it all since she was a young girl, but there was someone new among the panhandlers today. He wasn't a beggar or a singer or even a street gymnast. He was a young man sitting cross-legged with a ridiculous looking mustache and an incredibly tacky red, fringed jacket on. Those were not even the most interesting things about him.

Chapter Six: One Day
Rainbow Dash laid awake in her cloud bed. The morning had already arrived, but she made no move to get up. She was too busy thinking about what had transpired the day before, and all of the new thoughts and feelings that came with it.
To put it simply, she was very much interested at the prospect of being in a relationship with Applejack, as she had been for quite some time now. The thing was . . . she wasn't really sure why. It was difficult for her to really comprehend what it was she was feeling, and any attempt to try and analyze it usually ended with her just giving up due to frustration.
Dash had crushes on other ponies before, but they were light and fleeting. True, she never really hovered around to see if any of them would develop, but that was beside the point. Applejack, however, was somehow different. Over the past year, she had actually come back to revisit the possibility of being in love more than once, and more than just a

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.

The stars had begun to vanish and the moon had started to slowly disappear. The sky started turning light blue, signifying that in a few minutes, the sun would rise. Surrounding her were trees, towering high into the sky with the tree tops joining together, forming a shelter over her. Fluttershy inched her way to her left, leaving a huge empty space on her right. Turning her head towards the uninhabited spot, the yellow pony started to speak.

Zoey asked the cheerful girl with claws, having no other explanation for her at that time.
The witch let out a short series of light nods, the long silver hair having almost completely fallen over her the pale girl's face. Deadly as she may be, Zoey had just received a very calming and relaxing kiss, actually wondering if she really was the only one who was blushing like mad.

Silvery hair lit up the room as the moonlight reflected from it, the witch having shaken her head from side to side in a negative answer, head stopping quite low, as if the fact made her depressed or lightly sad.
