"Well, we've heard about Rarity, Twilight, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie," Princess Luna said with an entertained smile as she skimmed over her notepad, "That just leaves Fluttershy and Applejack." She looked up across the table to the only stallion present with them. "Big Macintosh, would you be so kind to give your account so we can finish this delightful narrative?"
"Delightful for you, maybe," Dash muttered under her breath, earning her a silencing glare from Twilight.
Macintosh sunk lower in his seat in an effort to go unnoticed; he knew it was impossible to hide his massive frame from everyone, but he was willing to try.
"Macintosh, dear, there's no need to be shy," Rarity cooed, "Just tell us what occurred last night."
"Um well " He sucked in a deep breath and sat up straight. "I saw Fluttershy home an' carried AJ home an' put her to bed before goin' to bed myself an' that's about all that happened last nigh

(Starring Shining Armor and Princess Cadance)
During the night of the crescent moon, a single carriage left the gates of Canterlot, largest city and capital of the Kingdom of Equestria. Now, normally this would not be such a strange occurrence as many carriages seem to enter and exit the metropolis at will. However, this very carriage had something, or rather someponies, which were of great importance on that particular night. A while ago, the entire city was witness to one of the most important dates of the year; more important than perhaps Winter Wrap-Up or Hearth's Warming: the wedding of Captain Shining Armor and Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, (or Cadance, as she liked to be called). However, it had also been a day of crisis as hordes of demonic changelings from the deepest part of Tartarus laid siege to Canterlot. Their queen, Chrysalis, had trapped Cadence under the Royal Palace and assumed her form, deceiving Shining Armor and the entire populace. With the stal

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 butter colored pegasus gave he
Faithful Student: Chapter ThreeGetting Trixie out of the library had proven to be more difficult than Twilight had anticipated. Her inability to provide more adequate sleeping arrangements had kept Trixie on edge and the magician used this excuse to complain and continue to hide in the loft as long as possible. By the time she could find no more reasons to stall and nothing more to gripe about, they were already nearly an hour late.Faithful Student: Chapter Three3 years ago in Drama More Like This
"Tell Trixie again why she must attend this ridiculous party?" the showmare asked as they walked. Agreeing to go hadn't meant she was going to be agreeable about the experience.
"Parties mean a lot to Pinkie Pie. It'll make her really upset if we don't go. She organized the whole thing just for you. The least we can do is show up," Twilight explained, getting frustrated with having to tell her this again. "We don't have to stay long."
Trixie sighed, appearing aloof and disinterested. In reality, she was getting more and more worried the closer they got to the sweets shoppe where she'd be

The rich velvet curtains by the doorway rustled imperceptibly, parting and falling closed as the princesses settled themselves on an elegant divan and motioned Twilight, Rarity, and their companions to make themselves comfortable on the richly brocaded cushions scattered about the opulent lounge suite reserved for the royal sisters and their guests.
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?"
At her side, Princess Luna sat with a look of guarded interest on her dusky face. "Yeah, lay it on us."
The scholarly unicorn mare smiled back, and her violet eyes began to gleam as her horn sparkled to life.

Octavia groaned as she lifted her head off her pillow. It was the night after the Gala, and Octavia had been playing her double bass all night, virtually without break. Virtually. There had been several interruptions of her performance; however, she could not remember what exactly happened yet. She could not remember why she could not remember, until she winced in pain as her head throbbed. It all started coming back to her.
The Gala had begun like it always had; posh ponies from all over Equestria flocked to socialise. Though, not all of them were quite as posh. As that night was drawing to a close, a pink earth pony had walked in and subsequently began to dance around like a lunatic, and jump onto stage where Octavia played. She did her best to continue playing as this annoying pony continued her misdemeanours throughout the crowd.
By now she could tell that this Gala was not going to

A quick summary about what this is about, for anyone too lazy to read the bottom.
When Dracula found that he was going to be a grandfather, he was overjoyed. Sure, his precious Mavis had grown up, married to a still unbitten Jonathan, but now another little one was coming into his life. And for once in a long time, everything was perfect. Except maybe that one tiny fact. His granddaughter is a human.
Hope you like it!

Twilight and Spike arrive at The Crystal Empire, and make their way towards The Crystal Palace.
Twilight: (breathes in the air) "It's always great to come back to The Crystal Empire."
Spike: "Yeah. (hesitating) Why are we here again? What did Princess Cadance say?"
Twilight: "It wasn't clear. The letter was short. She needed us urgently back in the Crystal Empire for something. I guess we'll find out when we meet her."

Ditzy burst through the door of the employee lounge, leapt into the air, and flew straight across the room to the breakfast table. An entire muffin was already in her mouth before her hooves even touched the floor again. The grey pegasus chewed contently for a few moments.
"Hungry today, are we?"
Ditzy snapped out of her muffin trance, and turned to glance at the pony who had addressed her.
"Hi Breeze!" she greeted cheerfully after managing to swallow the large quantity of muffin she had been chewing.
"Hey." Breeze replied, flashing a friendly smile. "So, how'd that first job go yesterday? Did you manage to fulfill your client's request?"
Ditzy nodded enthusiastically and proceeded to tell her co-worker all about the previous day's assignment.

Raindrops and Cloudchaser escorted the small, sodden cumulous overhead, the trailing runoff from the overloaded cloud splashing ponies on the ground as the two pegasus mares made a bee line for the circular burnt patch with its speckling of stubborn flames. The pale lavender weather worker took hold of the cloud and guided it in a figure eight pattern as her bright yellow partner hopped lightly on its crest, sending cascades of water to quench the remaining fires.
Soarin, Pip, and Spike touched down next to Twilight and the Apple sisters as the patrol pegasi went about their work. With a nod of satisfaction, the spotted earth pony stallion tugged a cord on the harness and caused the wings to refold themselves with a clack. "Well ladies, I think we can suffice it to say that the flight harness has performed admirably under duress."
Apple Bloom batted her eyes at Pip as a blushing smile spread across her face. "My hero!"

With the sun hanging overhead, Star Bolt stood looking at the welcome sign as he thought to himself, “Well this is it… I guess I should find out how to get to Sweet Apple Acres now.”
Star Bolt began trotting past the sign and into the town. As he continued down the road, he looked ahead at the town and smiled, “Looks peaceful… not very big, but very homely. I hope I can stay here for a whi…”

Sweet Apple Acres, along with the rest of the countryside surrounding Ponyville, was bathed in the brilliant glow of Celestia's sun. A light breeze stirred through the treetops of the orchard, bending some branches and blowing loose leaves from them. Each leaf that left a tree fluttered through the blue sky, coming to rest on the ground when the energy imparted upon it by gravity ran out, allowing it to settle peacefully on the grass-covered ground. Each new gust of the breeze brought down more leaves in this way, just as each new gust brought with it another fresh chill in the air. The chill heralded an unwelcome arrival, each breath of cold air was another reminder that the nights were growing colder and longer. Winter was coming, and it was coming entirely too fast.
The idyllic scene was only disrupted by a single sound. As the breeze blew and the trees swayed, a repetitive ringing noise sounded across the landscape. The noise rang out, scattering the peace that had previou

"Yes, Shining Armor?"
"There's something I've been meaning to ask you..."
Cadance looks curiously at Shining Armor.
"Why do you keep your mane tied up?"
"Yeah. I've never seen you without your ribbons holding your mane together."
"I prefer having it this way. It's easier to manage. Plus, I've been teased about it growing up. And, over time, it made me uncomfortable having a long mane."
And that would've been it, if it were not for Shining Armor's sheer curiosity.
"C-Can I see it?"
"Can I see your mane?"
"No, really. I wanna see it. Unbound."
Cadance, although largely uncomfortable at doing so, complies with Shining Armor's request.

Applejack opened her eyes in the pre-dawn light of her bedroom and looked at Fluttershy. Judging by the shade of the sky, dawn wasn't too far away, and the cockerel was sure to start calling shortly before that. Applejack looked again at her friend and sighed silently. Was that filly really feeling something warm and fuzzy for Big Macintosh?
Applejack had woken in the middle of the night to see her brother and Fluttershy standing just outside the doorway to her room, and then they'd started nuzzling each other. Applejack had never before seen her big brother acting affectionate with anyone but his family, but that wasn't the biggest surprise. What had come as a surprise to Applejack wasn't even the fact that it was Fluttershy that he was nuzzling... it was that she was nuzzling him right back. Applejack had been sure that Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash were fillyfoolers; they two were sure close, but Fluttershy would never double-cross anyone. So al

Jake lived with his family on an apple farm. He didn't know why it was just apples and not other crops like corn, wheat, potatoes etc.. But he didn't mind the easy work of picking apples every day, all day to sell at the local market.

And the people didn't fret, either; his family's apples were probably the biggest and juiciest apples anybody has ever laid their eyes on.

They slept through the morning. Blaze was the first to wake up, at about 2 in the afternoon. She looked at Silver, whom she was still cuddled up against. She smiled, extricating herself from him. She went downstairs, being careful not to wake Silver. She slipped downstairs to fix Silver a meal, giggling slightly at his sleeping form.

He bounded downstairs, the sound of bacon sizzling greeting his ears. He saw Blaze standing in front of the stove, and snuck up behind her. Despite her cat hearing, she had not heard him.
