Chapter 3: In The Everfree
"Don't shoot, don't shoot, don't shoot!" Twilight yelled as she ran towards Rainbow Dash, swerving around to her side and revealing the far-to-large-to-be-normal bat that was pursuing her, eyes glowing orange and covered in purple hair. Twilight swerved around next to her friend, "Okay, now shoot!" Both mares took aim and soon the bat was struck in the head by both a star burst and lightning bolt. It flipped around once in midair and flopped to the ground before it shrunk down to proper size. Looking normal once again, the bat flew away.
"How many'o those bats does that one make now?" Applejack said as she trotted over to the two, Rarity and Fluttershy in tow.
"Not sure, I lost count after about twelve of them or something," Rainbow said, using her wings to make a small breeze and cool herself and Twilight down after that last fight.
It had been a fare while since the Twilight and the ot

The cutie mark crusaders were still sitting on the couch, watching the TV like lazy couch potatoes. Apple Bloom tilted her head to the side and said, "Who knew they had such lovely underground underwater cities on the moon."
"It's the Lunar Republic, pretty cool actually," Scootaloo mentioned as she raised her brow at the show they were watching. "Though, I gotta question their tastes in gameshows."
"We'll be back to extreme underwater basket weaving after these commercials!" The girls groaned when the TV announced this and continued to watch. "There's a new Mare E. Kate and Ash Lee movie coming out, 'Mare E. Kate and Ash Lee go Shopping'!"
Sweetie Belle jumped on all four in shock and shouted, "Olsen Twins?!" Her eyes glowed red as she cried, "KILL!" and leapt at the TV. Her horn slammed into the screen, cracking into it and making it spark a few times before going dead. She hanged there limply, horn stuck, and after a brief moment said, "We are now rid

Once upon a time, perhaps a Tuesday, there lived a young, unicorn colt, who shall remain nameless for the duration of this tale, for his name has been lost in the flowing river of time.
He was no God incarnate, nor did he have royal blood, and he was most definitely not the hero of a chosen destiny. He was only a small colt of a light blue coat and the only son of a baker and tailor. He was at a point in his life when he was still in school. The village that he resided in was small, but he was not without companions.
Far from it, he had many friends. He loved them, and they loved him back.
Anypony who knew the young unicorn knew him well. He was playful, polite, and kind to his companions. He was taught well by his parents, and he never spoke out of place. Though one would most likely recognize him for his knightly ways. Truth be told, he was one comfortable

A white unicorn in royal robes and sparkling crown stood atop a snow-spotted peak. The blizzard responsible for it had been thwarted a full week prior--and hopefully, forever--but from her vantage point, its effects could still easily be seen across the horizon.
In its half-melted state, the snow highlighted the flora of the land below, causing several colors of the rainbow to shine under the moonlight.
Princess Platinum smiled. They almost hadn't done it. Heaven knew she hadn't contributed all that much to their cause.
At that moment, however, she at last heard the hoofsteps of one who had.
"Ahh, Clover the Clever," Platinum greeted the brown-robed violet unicorn who had just traversed the peak's leading trail. "Thank you for showing. I... did not wish to inconvenience you whilst you were napping."
Clover nodded with a light, airy smile. "I appreciate it. Still, I came as soon as I read your note. Is anything the matter?"
Platinum allowed a small, peaceful smile of her own to cros
A Flash of RomancePrincess Twilight Sparkle was on her way to the Crystal Empire's castle. Princess Cadance had requested that she perform translations for some books the Empire's ponies had recently discovered. They were written in ancient Mareabic, a language that few ponies even knew existed, let alone could understand. Twilight was one of the few who fulfilled both requirements. Knowing this, Cadance had sent her a letter, and Twilight, not wanting to let her sister-in-law and former foalsitter down, had agreed to help.A Flash of Romance2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Alas, due to circumstances beyond her control, Twilight was making the journey alone. All her friends were busy with important work of their own; Rarity had a large dress order to fill, Rainbow Dash had important weather work to catch up on, Applejack had extensive apple bucking to do, Pinkie Pie was planning a party for Pound and Pumpkin Cake's first birthday, and Fluttershy was tending to a sick bear.

Of her special guest they are not yet aware.
They know she is joined by someone quite vital,
And soon they are graced by the one with a title.
In a separate cart a statue is towed,
But their identity makes Twilight explode.
For resting in the seat is the one they've abhorred,
Yes, her guest is the villain Discord.
The mares are astounded; they don't want him back!
Does the princess remember his vile attack?
This is not at all what the ponies would choose,
But the situation the princess quickly does defuse.
She reminds them that they handed him a defeat,
Something that they could assuredly repeat.
The princess's plan involves kind Fluttershy,
She thinks she will turn him into a good guy.

When Flutters steps in and sets it all right.
The six gather round and the princess does leave,
Looking rather pleased and a little naive.

"Wow, today sure was great, wasn't it Twilight!" said Spike as he walked up the stairs with Twilight. They were both getting ready to go to bed after a long day of having saved Equestria once again and needed a lot of sleep.
"I mean, we saved the Crystal Empire, you passed your test, and I'm a hero now!" he continued excitedly. "Bet you weren't expecting that, eh?"
"Oh Spike…" said Twilight laughing, "…you were always a hero to me!"
"I know, but isn't it, like, just awesome that I have my own stained glass window in honor of what I've done now?!"
"It does feel pretty good to be in one of the stained glass windows in the Canterlot Palace. Of course it's traditional to always make one when somepony…or dragon, saves the day."
Spike stopped and started entering his little basket bed while Twilight continued on to her bed. She used her magic to lift the covers and began tucking herself in while talking to Spike.

"Don't," my inner voice forewarned... And as I pondered the fact that I should listen to it more often, the demon on my other shoulder kept begging. Incessantly pleading, beseeching, imploring. It would want nothing more than for me to get what I wanted (...or what it wanted...) Could my desires really be the same as that of a demon? I would be tragically crushed. We had been battling with this reverse psychology for too long.
I had been hiding and denying my sexuality for too long.
But I realize now
Why I can't relate
Why I differentiate
I can't understand
That I wasn't planned
But neither can they,
What would they say?
I can't be who I want to be
Living a life that is fake, sadly
"I'm not living,"
Battered, bruised, and beaten,
Crushed to conform,
Cold, never warm
Time to give in
Bring on the heat
To make me feel
Make me heal
"I'm going to tell them,"
But how would they react?
Would I still be intact?
In fact, actually, I'd be better locked away

A certain pegasus flew back into Ponyville to find the entire town completely deserted. She flew all around, obviously checking the homes of her friends. Twilight’s Golden Oaks Library was all books and no ponies, every dessert in Sugarcube Corner was left untouched by Pinkie Pie, Sweet Apple Acres had no work of Applejack’s done, the Carousel Boutique had no Rarity for all those dresses, and Fluttershy’s cottage didn’t have a single living thing even living there.
Once Rainbow Dash checked everywhere else, she did find one caped figure standing in front of the town square. Next to the figure was a life sized statue of Rainbow Dash, but it was wearing a helmet, a red cape with a golden zipper, red strap on and a cloud making a yellow lightning bolt on it, and four golden gauntlets with tiny white wings for each hoof of the statue. The helmet and gauntlets were rainbow colored and had golden coverings to assure they were made of metal.

I always had loved playing Pokémon, even at my age... I started with that cute little Pikachu game. Pokémon Yellow. Sadly, I never had Blue or Red. I had only seen it when I was trading around with my friend. From there on, I started collecting the games. Going from Pokémon Snap to the Trading Cards game, to the figures, the trading cards, Silver, Crystal, Sapphire, Emerald, Firered, twice even, Heartgold, Soulsilver and even Platinum, Explorers of Darkness, Diamond, Pearl, Trozei and Black and White on my little r4 card.

It had been a week since Rainbow Dash had left. Pinkie had told everypony that she had gone off to be with the Wonderbolts, and had shunned all the others.
"Well tarnation!" Applejack had exclaimed. "Who needed her anyway?"
But Twilight was skeptical. She went back to the library to mull things over. 'First Apple Bloom, then Twist, and now Rainbow Dash. Why is everypony in such a hurry to leave Ponyville? And why do they keep leaving exactly once a week?'
Suddenly, a horn sounded. The town had called a meeting. The mayor came up and made the announcement. "Rarity has left a note at my door stating that she will be leaving Ponyville to design dresses for Photo Finish in Manehattan. She will be leaving her Boutique to Twilight Sparkle."

Oh, it would be perfect, this day was bound to be perfect! It was my wedding day after all. I stood in the hallway leading to the tall room where everyone would soon be gathered, fidgeting with the bow tie around my neck. It felt the need to come unraveled every time I moved, and was getting on my nerves something fierce. I wonder....
Glancing around to make sure no one was watching, I grabbed the hammer from my belt and gently tapped the ribbon. It automatically tied itself, and I found myself with a perfect bow. Smiling, I put the hammer back. I knew it was weird to bring it to the wedding, let alone wear it with my tux, but I didn't want to take it off. I mean, I couldn't just leave it somewhere. So it stayed on my belt, whapping me in the leg every time I walked. My hands were bare, and I couldn't help but have them feel a little naked without my work gloves. It was so weird being dressed up. Sure, I didn't mind it, but how often was I really out of my work cloth

We already know that the first two episodes will be continuing rom where we left off at the end of Magical Mystery Cure. So here iss how I think the first two episodes will go down:
We already know that the Season 4 2-part opener will focus on Twilight's fears and questions after becoming a princess, so my guess is that this 2-parter will introduce a new villain who tempts Twilight with her wish of not wanting to leave her friends in the same vein as Ursula from The Little Mermaid. The twist would be that this villain was also responsible for turning Princess Luna into Nightmare Moon.
