With the wind picking up, he needed to finish his route, and fast. Ever since Derpy had taken a few days of absence to spend time with Dinky, he had taken up her position as the mailpony of Ponyville. Personally, he thought he was getting pretty good, although a few errors had slipped through. It was taxing, and secretly he hoped that she would return soon. He knocked on the oak door of the library. A violet unicorn answered.Changing Worlds Chapter 1: Letters4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Would you tell anypony if you knew the world was going to end?"
Twilight Sparkle paused in the middle of raising a steaming cup of cocoa to her lips and stared at Carrot Top. "The world? Going to end?"
Carrot Top just nodded, her face a blank slate.
Twilight took a quick sip before she replied. "Well, hypothetically speaking-"
"No," Carrot cut in, then softened her voice. "No, not just hypothetically. Please, think about this before you answer."
Twilight shook her head. "But there's so much I don't know." She rose to her hooves and paced back and forth across the hardwood of the library's floor. "Would it happen all at once, like an explosion, or would it be a few minutes, or hours, during which everypony would be scared?"
Carrot finally broke into a small smile. "I should have expected this." The smile dropped away as she answered, "All at once. About three and a half hours from now."
Twilight stopped and looked back and forth between Carrot Top's green eyes. The cup of cocoa hovered

It could be a hippogriff under that costume and no pony would know the difference. I was as interchangeable as anypony else in the group. Some of the casual fans were actually confused about how big the group is.
Well let me settle that right now for you. There is no 'fixed' number of Wonderbolts as a lot of the uninitiated think. The group's numbers decrease and increase as old members retire and new blood is pumped in to take their place.

The spell she used was incredibly complex and only possible for a being as powerful as her. There were only two other creatures on the planet that were capable of it one was encased in a stone prison and the other was her sister.
It was a common misconception that she actually moved the Sun itself to bring the dawn. Although she had the ability to direct and manipulate the life-giving energies of the massive star, its mass was far too much to physically shift though magic. Besides, if she performed such an act then the other planets in the solar system would be catastrophically shunted out of orbit.
No, what she was actually doing was maintaining her planet's orbit and ensuring it kept spinning on its axis. For this, she used a spell that lasted for a full 24 hours once cast, the day's natural cycle would take care of itself until the tim

Halt leaned casually on the wooden fence, watching the scene before him with a warm, happy feeling in his heart. Next to him perched Will, now a fully fledged Ranger for over six years. Will had his elbows resting on his knees and his chin resting in his hands, gazing lovingly at the same spectacle as his friend and mentor.
The two Rangers watched Will's two year-old daughter, Myfy, play with her sandy-haired pet goat. Her curly brown hair bounced as she toddled around and her grey eyes sparkled with joy. Myfy was the most adorable little girl in all of Araluen, at least according to her parents and her adoptive grandparents, Halt and Pauline.

Big Macintosh bounced lightly on the tips of his hooves, his deep, gentle voice coming out in a singsong rhythm to the giggling accompaniment of his son Bud, who sat perched on the massive stallion's broad back fluttering his tiny apple green wings. "This the way the ladies trot, so do we, so do we..."
He shifted his tempo to a more strident hop, which in turn caused the little orange maned foal to escalate from giggling to cackling. "Here comes a country colt, hobbledy gee, hobbledy gee!" He finished the rhyme with an emphatic bounce on his hooves.
The huge red stallion stopped and looked over his shoulder, blinking in consternation as he suddenly realized that Bud was no longer sitting on his back. He cast his panicked gaze around the barnyard of Sweet Apple Acres, looking over to Fluttershy, who sat on a rocking chair on the porch with Bud's twin sister Blossom cradled in her forelegs contentedly drinking from a bottle.

The sentence hit her like a freight train. She looked around quickly, trying to piece it all together "No...No!"

Princess Celestia gave her prized student an encouraging smile and gave a bob of her tapering horn. "Now, Twilight, what is this matter that you and your friends would like to bring to our attention?"

No, she was still quite sane. It wasn't like she was totally alone either.

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.

Her death had come as a shock to everyone, even now the details were kept secret from the rest of the world. Only the royal family knew the truth.
