Chapter 1 'Unexpected Encounter"
by Kendell2 and Raikou Artist
"Well, it's nice to be back in Canterlot; so much has changed!" Twilight said as she continued walking, excitement in her voice. Sure, she'd been here a few times since she'd moved to Ponyville, but this was really the first time she'd been there just to relax and reconnect with her roots, as opposed to a party or being called to save the world from an ancient evil that escaped its prison. She remembered Rarity's friendship report after Twilight's birthday; don't be ashamed of your roots. That's what had compelled her to come do a little reconnecting with where she'd come from. "Isn't that right, Spike Spike?" she asked, looking back at her assistant to see him falling quite far behind.
Spike panted, struggling to keep up. "Yeah, Twilight," he panted, stopping to catch his breath. "Can I... Can I please ride on your back?" he asked, unable to keep up with the excited Unicorn mare. "I know you're excited, but I can onl

Equestria Hockey League Part IX Wingin' It
The following day after the Ponyville Golden Leafs' tension-packed, fight-filled victory over the Fillydelphia Flyers, Twilight Sparkle had administrative duties to perform. Earlier that morning, the other Golden Leafs stopped by to donate their share of the team's 10,000 bit fine to the EHL. Applejack offered to pay more than her share for she was still feeling guilty about receiving a suspension and putting the team in a tough spot. Twilight sent the fine payment along with a message asking if Spike could substitute for Applejack in the Golden Leafs' lineup for their next game at Cloudsdale.
Twilight nervously paced inside the treehouse, waiting for the EHL's response. Spike was casually lounging in a chair near the fireplace, reading a superhero comic. Twilight periodically looked over at Spike to see if he had belched a new message. Feeling small vibrations from Twilight's pacing, Spike peered up over his co

Equestria Hockey League Part XI For Whom the Belle Tolls
Another "X" marked on the calendar to begin another day of loneliness for Twilight Sparkle. She sighed loudly as she glanced at the current day's square and saw the words "weekly practice" in bold red letters. Twilight lazily began to ready herself for the long day, dragging herself to the mirror to brush her mane. Spike rustled out of his sleep and yawned his way up and out of his bed. Even while rubbing his eyes, Spike could see Twilight's distress. He let out one last yawn and stretched out his tiny limbs.
"Well somepony looks down in the dumps. What's wrong Twilight?"
Twilight looked away from the mirror and down at her hooves. "I don't know Spike. Ever since the Appleloosa game, I've been feeling incredibly lonely and a bit guilty."
Spike walked up next to Twilight and began fussing with his scales in the mirror beside her.
"Lonely I can understand, but guilty? The girls weren't listening to y

Equestria Hockey League Part III Inaugural Debut
Giant buildings shadowing every inch of the ground. Crowded streets teeming with rushing carts and carriages. Delicious smells of various shops filling the daytime air. This was Manehattan, the site of the Ponyville Golden Leafs' first EHL game that evening. Twilight Sparkle and her team of rag-tag ponies all looked up, down, and around, admiring their urban surrounding with great wonder. Of the ponies, Rarity was the one most excited by the atmosphere, squealing and gushing over every high-class fashion boutique they passed. Pinkie Pie hopped with an extra spring in her step towards the many bakeries and eateries down the main street. Spike rode along as Twilight Sparkle's brain rushed with flowing questions and curiosity as she encountered things she had never seen before: traffic posts, street performers, and giant billboards. Rainbow Dash found herself feeling comfortable and at peace among

Equestria Hockey League Part 8.5 All-Star Adventure
It was day one of EHL All-Star Weekend. Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash were excited to leave Ponyville behind for a small vacation and to mingle with the greatest the EHL had to offer. Since all the festivities were being held in Canterlot this year, Twilight and Rainbow were transported by a royal chariot to the capitol city. When their chariot landed, they were met by EHL Commissioner Gary Bettpony and the rest of the EHL executives. The royal palace was adorned in multiple banners and decorations. Each EHL team had their logo emblazoned on a banner as well as a magical floating portrait of their all-star selections. Twilight and Rainbow squealed excitedly when they saw their massive photo shot floating above the Golden Leafs' banner. As the all-star Golden Leafs trotted on toward the palace, a trumpet fanfare from the royal guards blared out, announcing their arrival.

The westward train chuggled along at great speed toward Appleloosa. The landscape gradually transformed from the white, winter wonderland of Ponyville to the brown, dry desert of the Western lands. On board the train were the Ponyville Golden Leafs, awaiting their arrival at their next opponent's city. In the lodging car, Twilight, Spike, and friends sat around bored with not much else to do.
"Ugh, it's so boring on this train. I knew I should've brought my books," said Twilight with a sigh.
"I know what we can do! We can braid each other's manes. It would be soooo fabulous!" Rarity exclaimed.
Rainbow Dash stuck out her tongue in disgust. "I think I'd rather watch paint dry than do that frilly girly stuff."
"Ah'm with Rainbow on that one," said Applejack. Rainbow then gave Applejack a hoof bump.
Pinkie Pie bounced up and down from her seat bubbling with

“Thank you again, Fluttershy,” said Discord, the now genuinely sick Draconequus laying in the the quarantine bubble Cadence had helped make him. He groaned. What had that worm spat on him anyway? He wasn't used to something he couldn't just snap his fingers and make go away, except for the now gone Elements of Harmony.
“Yes, you're quite welcome,” said Fluttershy, though her tone seemed a tad sharper than he was used to hearing from the Pegasus...most of the time. It wasn't like when she'd reigned him in before, but it was there. Maybe it was just the illness talking.
“Alright, we'll be headin' off, Fluttershy...” said Applejack, she and Rarity having lingered after Twilight left. “Yah sure yah can handle things?” she asked, her distrusting look more directed at the sick Draconequus than her friend.
“Yes, but thank you for your concern,” the kind pegas

“That was some coronation!” Rainbow Dash announced in excitement, flying into the library the moment the door opened. “Though it’s no fair you can already fly…” muttered the pegasus somewhat bitterly, then cracked a smirk. “I was lookin’ forwards to teaching yah myself.”
Twilight followed, flanked by her friends, a sleeping Spike on her back. She blushed slightly with an embarrassed look. “Well…I actually have no idea how I flew at the coronation. I think it might have just been like the flight instincts in baby pegasi. You might still get your chance…”
Rainbow gave another smirk. “Well, it doesn’t matter; I’ve still got a new flying buddy!”

Applejack Character ReviewIt comes as something of a surprise that Applejack represents the spirit of Honesty within "Friendship is Magic". Although one would scarcely dare to call Applejack a liar, Honesty is perhaps not her greatest virtue. Nevertheless, Applejack has so many positive attributes honesty included that her representation in the Pilot as this particular embodiment of the Elements of Harmony makes sense, even if it seems a little odd at first. After all, what else would Applejack represent? Her character within the show is synonymous with both a maturity beyond her years and an unmatched compassion for her peers, to the extent that she becomes, to this viewer, the unofficial leader of the group.Applejack Character Review3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Although it is well-established that Twilight Sparkle is the 'main' member of the core six, Applejack has more qualities that could be associated to a lead protagonist. Her behaviour is almost always optimistic; rarely do we see an example where she succumbs to defeat or negativity, even whe

The following day after the Golden Leafs' exhilarating victory over the Fillydelphia Flyers, Ponyville buzzed with excitement and fervor despite the freezing temperatures. More and more Golden Leafs signs, merchandise, and other various trinkets were cropping up in each house and shop. Sugarcube Corner began selling Golden Leafs cupcakes, each pastry depicting the team's logo in delicious icing. Applejack, Apple Bloom, and Big Macintosh painted their apple selling cart to reflect the Golden Leafs' royal blue and gold colors. Rarity spent her days off stitching up Golden Leafs jerseys, hats, saddles, and even dresses, to sell at the Carousel Boutique. Golden Leafs fever was sweeping through Ponyville and Twilight and company couldn't have been more proud.
Enjoying her day off, Twilight lounged in front of the fireplace. She was reading a new book, calmly flipping through the pages. As she turned to the next

A set of double doors slammed open, casting only a glimpse of light into the pitch black room. A man, skinny and frail, was shoved through the light, falling onto his chest in the darkness. He quickly sat up, looking back in time to see the last trace of fluorescent light disappear as the doors closed.
"Do you know why you are here, Mr. Bowing?" A deep voice boomed through the room's darkness; the man's body began to shiver, unsure where the menacing voice came from.
"Uh, I'm, uh, not sure sir," the man stuttered.
"According to my files, you are one of the men in charge of maintaining cast and crew of our television department, is that correct?"
The man simply nodded and, upon realizing that the pitch black room made it impossible to see, responded vocally, "Uh, y-yes sir."
"And tell me Mr. Bowing, what show's cast do you exactly care for?"

Applejack slept peacefully on her bed, when suddenly she felt some movement on it. This caused her to frown as she kept her eyes closed. “Winona, it’s too early to play right now… maybe later.”
“SURPRISE!” two voices shouted from the other side of the bed.
“WHOA!” Applejack was startled and fell out of bed as she heard that, her hooves getting tangled with her sleeping robe. She fell on her back and quickly opened her eyes to look upwards.
“Good morning Applejack!” said a smiling Applebloom as she looked down at Applejack.
“Rise and shine, sleepyhead.” said Pinkie Pie, also looking down at the orange mare. She was wearing an apron.
Applejack slowly got up and looked at the two ponies in her room, “Applebloom? Pinkie Pie? What are you doing here? What time is it?”
“We made you breakfast, so you can eat in bed!” said Applebloom happily.

Two days had passed since the Ponyville Golden Leafs returned home from their tough loss to the Manehattan Rangers. During those days off, Twilight and her friends rested and completed their usual chores and jobs. On the third day, the Golden Leafs met for practice at Ponyville Pond. Instead of constructing the boards and glass on the ice, Twilight had Spike only bring two nets, the sticks, and the girls' practice uniforms. Right on time, the remaining Golden Leafs arrived to the rink. Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie joined Twilight at the edge of the rink. The ponies shivered as they changed into their pads. A cold wind blew fiercely as grey clouds hung low over the pond in the afternoon. Twilight looked around for Applejack but there were no signs of her.
"Hey girls, did any of you hear from Applejack?" asked Twilight
Fluttershy shook her head as she laced up her skates. "No, none of us has.

Off to Canterlot were the Ponyville Golden Leafs on a sunny, yet chilly winter morning. Inside the carriage, Twilight and company, accompanied by Sweetie Belle, eagerly chattered about things to do once they arrived in the capitol city. Rarity was the most excited of the ponies as she bounced from window to window, trying to observe Canterlot's splendor.
"Ooh we absolutely MUST visit Hoity Toity's fashion studio. It's been ages since I've seen him last!"
Applejack yanked Rarity away from the window. "Hold yer horses there, Rarity. We need ta' see Canterlot's famous golden apple trees! I'ma take an apple home and plant its seeds at the farm!"
