Mark of the Sun
The sleepy little alicorn princess did the best she could to keep her eyes open. In her vision was an orange sky with dark blue sky surrounding it. The rest of the sky was still darkened. The stars were behind them for the night was just about finished and morning was on its way. The ocean waves were crashing down every few seconds just yards away from her as the wind flowed through her bright pink mane.
To her right was a tall, grey, bearded alicorn stallion with his face to the east waiting patiently by her side. His flank bore the symbol of balance, his wings large and majestic although tucked at his sides, his black mane cut straight and short like that of a royal guard's helmet. His name was Accord. He showed no signs of weariness for he, the master of order and harmony, had been well prepared for this. But it was not his moment to prove himself. The dau

It all began with love.
After the dawn of time, alicorns and mortal ponies lived separate from one another. In the old age, the ponies of the earth below us started out as a very segregated race: greedy, unjust, hateful. The world as we knew it had turned evil and no longer reflected the land it was created to be. Sin was rampant everywhere and love was but a memory rarely spoken of. We alicorns, the immortal and wise race, were disgusted with what the world had become and made our domain in the heavens far above the sky. Granted, our race was not perfect either, but the land below us was shrouded in darkness and hate and we could not coexist with those beings.
The land grew colder, and snowier. The winter season one year did not stop. Spring did not come; instead, it continued to snow and freeze all around the ponies' domain. It was the windigoes, demon equine s

It was a bright sunny day in the heart of Equestria. The ponies of Ponyville were out and about at their every day duties and activities. Inside Sugarcube Corner, the workers were busy creating the finest baked goods in the village. The pony named Cup Cake was walking through the shop checking on all her employees.
"These treats are looking good everypony. Keep up the good work!" she encouraged them. But nearby, some ponies were having issues.
One pony was busy making a delectable little cupcake on her worktable when she ran out of icing in her tube. She turned around to reach for a new one and then turned back only to find her cupcake gone.
"What the ? Hey, Pinkie Pie!!" she said turning to the adorable pink pony with icing and cake mix smeared all over her face.
"Oops ..were you working on that?" she asked.
"Um, yeah I was! Now I gotta start all over again, thanks!" said Pinkie's co-worker

An analysis of why MLP: FiM is so popular
First let us start with a problem that has been occurring recently in the media, something I call the Animation Drought. In recent years the quality of animated shows in America has degraded, and by a great margin. Some of this can perhaps be traced to the fall from grace of Cartoon Network which had, among other things, killed Toonami, become reliant on re-runs, and has actually begun airing shows that are not cartoons. Another aspect is something that had been occurring long before this which was the failings of Disney with its string of mediocre sequels. Even the good shows still on have suffered in quality, such as Ben Ten, or alternatively, have been canceled altogether..
This has led to a pessimism about animation in America and so any news of a show of even decent quality is immediately jumped upon, this is not to say FiM is merely decent but let us be fair here, many people that now love the show would not have been caught dead even loo

CHAPTER 1: Luna's test
The world around Princess Luna was obscured by her closed eyelids. Darkness was something that never scared her though; after all, she was the princess of the night. All she could hear in the large palace was the voice of the pony in front of her: Starswirl the Bearded. He was the wisest and most powerful unicorn mage in the kingdom and Luna's best teacher thus far. His gift of immortality allowed him to live on without dying and he had been teaching younglings for centuries by now.
Remaining perfectly calm, Luna's unicorn horn began to glow with light and was ready to cast a powerful spell. She was in the middle of a very important test of her skills in magic and was more than determined to pass it.
"Now remember Luna, you will not need your eyes for this test." said Starswirl. "The deepest forms of magic come from within. You cannot rely on vision to

"Tia, I can't believe I'm already on my way to raise the moon tonight!" Luna shouted flying next to her sister high above the Equestrian landscape below them.
"Neither can I Luna." Celestia responded. "It seems like it was just yesterday when I raised the sun and earned my mark."
"Do you think I'll get my mark too?"
"I got my mark the first time I raised the sun and I have a feeling you will too."
"I sure hope I do "
"You will Luna, I know you will. And don't feel bad if you don't get it the first time; you can always try again. I'll come with you a second time if I have to "
"No there won't be a second time, I will raise the moon tonight!"
"That's the spirit Luna!"
"Though I'll bet I can get there before you!" Luna snickered, speeding up ahead of Celestia.
"Oh, so you wanna race do you?!" said Celestia, diving forward at greater speeds.

Up near the great Canterlot Mountain in the northern sky, a glimmer of sunlight reflected off of something golden in midair. It was Princess Celestia's royal chariot being driven by two pegasus guards with the princess inside along with her nephew, Prince Blueblood. Behind them was another smaller chariot with two servant ponies seated inside: one was a slim and well-dressed male earth pony with a moustache and a monocle and the other was a young female unicorn maid wearing a dress.
Celestia, happy as always, sat smiling warmly in her seat staring at the view of Ponyville just a few short miles away in the distance where they were heading. Blueblood, however, seemed somewhat distraught. He sat, not saying a word to Celestia and she finally decided to cheer him up.
"Blueblood, my nephew, why so melancholy?" she asked him "You're on your way to receive your first royal crown."

Twilight Sparkle hadn't run this fast since she was a filly.
She rounded the spiral stairs of Canterlot Castle, gasping and desperate, until she reached her library workshop. Her chest heaved and hurt from the nonstop running, but she pushed it aside to concentrate on the task at hand.
They'd called her mad. They'd said she was depraved. They'd said she was messing with powers beyond her reach.
Unfortunately, for once, it seemed that "they" were right.
Wasting no time, she willed several books off of the massive shelves. They opened and spun around her. Twilight's eyes were lightning, moving across several turning pages in mere seconds. Her mind moved almost as frantically.
It should have worked, it should should have worked, it should have worked! None of this should have happened! I checked everything! I dotted my Is, crossed all the Ts, carried all the ones, seriously what happened here-
"There she is!" she heard a voice cry out from the hallway.

Spike the "Hero"
The Crystal Empire was slowly becoming engulfed in a mass of threatening, black clouds; dark as the deadliest of storms. Screams could be heard all around as the crystal ponies began to panic. Up in the tallest tower in the city, Twilight found herself trapped within the confines of a black-crystal prison, the gems risen up from the ground, blocking any means of escape for the lavender unicorn. Just outside, Spike started to feel nervous. His eyes darted from side to side, his feet moved up and down like two, small pistons.
Twilight started to scramble within the crystal-walled trap, looking for the Crystal Heart with a set of panicked eyes.

Creepy Pasta:Pokemon BloodboneI'm sure we all know how this story starts. There's always someone, getting a game from Gamestop and I am no different. I had always wanted to own Pokemon Heartgold or Pokemon Soulsilver. I had remembered my days playing Pokemon Crystal version. Sure, I owned Black version and White version. But I didn't care. I wanted Heartgold or Soulsilver. One faithful day, I had dropped by Gamestop to check out the games. I was scavenging through a used game pile, when I found a tattered up copy of SoulSilver. The box was cracked in several places and the paper for the cover was ripped. There was a large stain on the front.

“Don’t worry, I will. And apologize to Angel for me; I doubt he’s too happy with me for stealing you away from him for a week,” Twilight giggled as she released Fluttershy, allowing the pegasus to throw her hooves around Luna’s neck.
“Bye Luna. You can write to me too, when you need it. Or, just if you want to... if that’s alright...” Fluttershy mumbled before pulling away.
“Thank you Fluttershy, it would be my privilege to write to you,” Luna replied with a wide and sincere smile. Leaning closer as the train shook into motion, she whispered, “However, you may wish to cut your farewells short, lest your train leave without you.”

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...

“Well, at first I wanted it to be a surprise,” Twilight replied with a broad grin, “but then I sort of forgot about it.”

Tom lay back in his couch and let out a sigh, breath laden in beer, eyes so heavy he felt the world champion bodybuilder would have a difficult time keeping them open. The moonlight streamed through the Venetian blinds, cascading across the television as he stared at it, the images of little cartoon equines flashing on the screen. He looked at the clock. 11:30. Late enough where he should have been in bed, yet early enough where he didn't feel the least bit drowsy. He cursed his many late nights in college, watching movies, playing drinking games with his friends. It was his own fault, such was the story of his life.
He looked to his right. A framed photograph, showing the grinning face of himself and his family. Wife, Ashley, and daughters, Kelly and Sandra. A smile slowly crept onto his face as he looked into his daughter's eyes. So pure and imaginative- what he'd give to see them again. Alas, one drunk driver and a flipped va
