Sunset - Chapter 4: EclipseDeep in the heart of the Everfree Forest, maybe less than half a mile from the rotting castle at its heart, sat a large pond that sparkled in the noon-time sun. Creatures of all sizes and shapes idled by the cool water that day, the oppressive heat at its height.Sunset - Chapter 4: Eclipse5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A low roar sounded from above the pond, compelling the creatures to look towards the sky at the incoming threat. Birds took flight as the animals on the ground ran away, almost as if they could sense the torrent of distress coming their way. The roar became steadily louder, a purple point on the horizon growing in size and ferocity. Any creature that had not fled by then sealed its fate.
In an instant, the once placid pond erupted with a bang, a huge jet of water piercing into the sky as the lavender streak struck into the heart of the body. Large waves crested out from the source as if the edges of the trapped liquid were the mighty ocean itself. Those animals that did not flee were swept away by the inland tidal wave, back o

She had done a Sonic Rainboom, what dad had called it, and everyone cheered her on. They were all ponies, just like me. They loved her, cheered for her, celebrated with her, but what about me? Who's there for me?
I'm just sitting here in the rain, thinking about her life compared to mine, and I'm just wondering... is that really me? Is that where I belong? It can't be, I belong here... with dad.... At this point I can't be fucked about how worried he might be, he kept this show a secret from me this whole time so he deserves being left there to rot. I don't care. I just want to belong.
Man, all these years... I just didn't know any better. There wasn't much to life other than being with dad, but I kinda wondered about how he talked to other people and I couldn't. What was wrong with me? What would I have to say to them? Would I be loved as much as the Rainbow Dash from the show was? It's kinda sad, for the longest time I've kept it a secret, but I've ac

And yet I have nothing to show for it.
Had I just gone mad? Was it just a Rainbow Dash plushie that I had imagined as the real thing? And Celestia taking her away was the result of me snapping back to reality after growing up? That would explain a lot, considering everything in this house appeared as though I've been living alone this whole time.

Trixie groaned and stretched as she woke up. Her legs felt like lead. Opening her eyes revealed a familiar ceiling. It was the middle of the night, a half moon providing only just enough light to see by. Trixie wondered if she could go more than a week without passing out anytime soon. She glanced up as if to see her own forehead, and focused for a moment. Sure enough, a pale blue light emanated from her horn.
"Hah hah!" she shouted in excitement. A murmur caught her attention. She looked over and found Fluttershy asleep on her stool, just like a week ago. Trixie smiled and chuckled. She gazed on at Fluttershy for a moment, before a small part of her reminded her of her situation. Her smile turned into a deep frown. She forced herself out of bed on the far side from Fluttershy.
"I've taken enough from you." Trixie whispered. Her horn continued to glow as she enveloped Fluttershy in a magical aura. She gently lifted Fluttershy from her seat and pulled back the covers. She slid
Luna's Best Night Ever 8Luna had expected the panicking. Being honest and open was refreshing, but she knew that it also had consequences.

"Nightmare Moon is... back?"
Luna nodded and Twilight's mouth moved, forming words that came out as faint whispers and quiet babbling.
"Twilight? I... didn't mean to hide it from you. I was ashamed of what I had done at the gala, and I still am. I've been trying to figure out the best possible way to correct things and-"
"That's not what I'm worried about. How long have you known?"
Twilight's eyes were focused and her fear seemed to have rapidly shifted to anger. Luna wondered if being screamed at by Twilight for making a huge mess of things was better or worse than having to fight Nightmare Moon again on her own.
"Known... about Fluttershy?"
Twilight nodded, standing up.

The lights flickered in the studio, the concrete floors and dark corners giving the illusion that the building was to be considered a large garage. However, it was a bit more ornate than that, as banners hanging from the ceiling and different metal machines adorned the edges near the walls, showcasing a pony in a white suit, with even it's mane and tail completely hidden within the confines of the fabric, a shining white helmet adorning the stallion's head, leaving any idea of the pony under the cloth to be a complete mystery.
A bushy maned pony walked into the center of the staging area of the building, stepping upon a raised platform which held two couches, one large enough for two ponies, and the other the beige pony found himself occupying, placing some documents on the table as he rested himself on the seat. Flipping through pages, the pony's expressions flipped lazily from mild surprise to utter disgust as fiddled with the color of

Important role in Appleloosan society put aside, he was, above all else, a member of the Apple family, and like the other members of his extensive family, he could often be found in the apple orchards, as he was now.
Even with the arid climate surrounding the settler ponies' home, there was a distinct chill in the air that indicated the presence of autumn. Celestia knew they welcomed the change from summer to fall, from growth to harvest. Braeburn was certainly no exceptionwhile he suspected he could feel at home in any orchard, he felt most at home in an orchard whose trees bore fruit that was ripe for the picking.
The stallion wandered aimlessly through the rows of trees, looking up at their branches,

Scootaloo was riding on her scooter as fast as she possibly could. The teenage Pegasus was about to get as much air as she possibly could by jumping her scooter off a ramp and then jumping off that scooter. Once in the air she would probably drop her scooter down below and use her wings to fly. With the speed she gained on the ground she would attempt to pull off some tricks that any Wonderbolt watching from below would be impressed with.
She hit the jump and went into the air just as she wanted to. Once there, and after making sure nopony was below, she dropped her scooter and started flying. The speed and adrenaline was coursing through her body as she flew faster and faster. Being that she was a late bloomer from her old parents never teaching her how to fly, the show she was doing was really impressive.
Alright Scootaloo, let's see if you can do this, Scootaloo thought to herself. Rainbow Dash may be the only pony that could do this before, but she was also your mentor.

The moon peeked above the horizon as Luna landed in the garden outside the farm. She glanced up and watched the pale orb and the thousands of stars sparkling in the black sky. This was the time when she felt most comfortable, but there was little consolation in the sky tonight. She didn't know how much time she could expect to have before Trixie and Twilight returned, and she had no idea what she was even looking for or what she should expect to find. She turned her gaze to the farm. There was no light in the windows, or smoke from the chimney. The place seemed completely abandoned. She hoped it wasn't merely a ruse.
With slow steps, Luna walked up to the old door and focused on the lock. A click and a creak later the door stood open before her, a portal into the darkness and the unknown. She stood for a bri

"Dashie?" I called out. A few tiny hoof taps sounded against the wooden flooring of my house, and a particular cyan filly darted around a corner and skidded to a stop in front of me, gazing up at my face with those large, innocent violet eyes of hers. She blinked. Not only a week ago had she uttered her first words, and just recently she had been exploring the house while I was away at work.
I set my keys in the cupboard above the sink I normally keep them in, before reaching down and grabbing the filly with both hands, setting her on the countertop by the sink. She sat down on her haunches, and continued staring up at me as I cranked the handle on the sink engraved with a large "H". Water poured out the nozzle, which quickly snagged her attention.
I had retrieved water for her before via the sink (as my refrigerator's water dispenser had been broken since before my parents passed), but, from her diminutive vantage point, she had never actually witnessed the wat

As Twilight and Spike walked back to the library, the young dragon just seemed to have one question on his mind.
“But do you like me too?” asked Spike.
Twilight giggled slightly. “Yes Spike, for the fiftieth time yes.”
“But you said you loved me. Does that mean you like me or you like me as a friend or maybe you-“
Spike’s seemingly endless babbling was quickly cut short when Twilight suddenly planted a quick kiss on his lips. “Does that answer the question, Spike?” Twilight asked with a warm smile.
As soon as Twilight’s lips met his, Spike froze. The only sign of life in his shocked face was a quickly growing blush. After a few more seconds the purple dragon spoke. “Uhhhhhhh, yes?”
Twilight couldn’t help but giggle at Spike’s innocent answer. “Okay then. Shall we continue back to the library now?

"Maybe I should do something nice for a change..." Russia pondered, thinking back to Matvey's words of being kind. He still felt bad about Matvey's promise, but this was good practice; it might be a good opportunity to try it out.
He entered the living room and walked toward the table, already welcomed by his Baltic servants, but he noticed that something was off. He stayed silent as he headed to his seat and awaited to be served.
Lithuania handed his breakfast to him and went to fetch his drink. Latvia too was waiting beside Russia, still trembling, for his order.

Sunset - Epilogue: Redemption Someday, in the distant future, the events of that day would have two different names, depending on who you asked, or what book you read. To most of Equestria, it would be known as 'The Battle at Canterlot', while in the small town of Ponyville, it would be known as 'The Reckoning.' Neither of the names chosen for the whole fiasco were wrong, but neither did they get across how seriously it impacted history.

Just continuing to blink in some confusion at Zim and Dib, the nurse eventually returned her attention back to her notes.
Giggling through the tube a bit and squirming around in the bed, Dib, meanwhile, had by now closed his eyes with a big smile on his face, happy that he got what he wanted from Zim.
Zim gave him a light poke on the forehead. "Yeah, you better be happy, stink-beast." He smirked before giving his hair a small ruffle.
Reaching up a hand to take hold of Zim's hand, Dib blinked his eyes back open before intertwining their fingers together.
Staring down at him all the while, Zim moved his thumb gently against Dib's hand.
Dib brought up his free hand to write something else on Zim's arm. "Hey, where did Gir go anyways?" He asked, having only just then realized the android wasn't with them.

Zim looked up at Dib quickly at his reaction. "Huh, I mean...Probably. I guess they can't keep you here for too much longer." He tried to send Dib a reassuring smile.
Dib looked back up at Zim sadly. "My mom was kept here for 4 months before she died..." He wrote out to the other on his arm again.
Looking back at him a little shocked by his words, Zim looked off to the side sadly for a moment before looking back at him again. "Well...It won't be the same for you, Dib." He said with a confident nod of his head.
Dib hugged the covers even tighter to himself. "I'm not so sure...I've only been here about 24 hours and already I have something jammed down my throat that's breathing for me." He wrote before tightening his grip on the covers slightly.

"Kumajirou...you have to wake up." Canada petted his bear gently, which stirred him but failed to wake him up.
Canada knew that his bear was a heavy sleeper. He was very difficult to wake up at times (compared to himself, who was a light sleeper.) He had an idea, and his hands tickled Kuma's fur and his tummy. It worked, as Kumajirou was awake and whined, "Mean trick!"

Letting out a small whine, Dib shifted in his sleep a bit and shivered. "Mmmm...Mom..." He murmured, tightening his hold on Zim's shirt.
Zim frowned in his sleep from all the shifting. "Mm...Mmm?" He peeked his eyes half open at Dib for a short moment before shuffling up nearer to him to get comfortable again.
Tugging at the covers in his sleep, Dib pulled them over his head as though to hide. "Mom...Mommy..." He let out a small whimper.

No one would have any desire to fight or be better than anyone else. A place full of curiosity and wonder. Where we wouldn't have anything to worry about, no prejudice, no hunger, no unmet need or desire.
