A Changeling stallion, wearing a decorated general’s uniform collapsed to the decorative carpeted floor. He writhed about like a snake being stepped upon, screaming horrifically in sheer agony and kicking his legs wildly in the air in all directions. His hooves lashed at the sides of his head, tearing up the fur and flesh with long trails of blood dripping from the wounds. The wretched creature looked like he was undergoing an exorcism.
Sitting around the small, dimly lit room were a large group of Changelings, a mixture of stallions and mares, dressed either in similar grey uniform, each wearing a varying collection of medals and pins, or the muted kimonos befitting politicians. This was the Changeling Army General Staff, convening within the stronghold of the royal palace. All of them sat with the silent demeanour and perfect posture of statues, not one of them twitching at the sight of the suffering officer or his agonizing cries.
Makin' Bakin'The sun was reddening as it sank low, touching the horizon. The shadows of shops and trees lengthened over the Ponyville town square as ponies took down their sellers' stalls. It had been a fine day for a farmer's market, and everypony had sold well and bought well. One in particular, who had set up her cart near the dress shop, was especially satisfied.Makin' Bakin'4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Ten bushels out, one bushel back. Big brother gotta be plenty happy with that!"
Applejack hummed an old folk-song as she tucked away the canvas awning, and lifted the last basket into the cart. Just as she had lowered her head to get into the pulling-harness, the door of the dress shop opened, revealing an elegant white unicorn with a perfectly coiffured mane and tail.. "Oh, Applejack, I'm glad you haven't left yet!"
Applejack looked up... "Oh! Howdy, Rarity! Another minute and I woulda been gone. What can I do ya for?"
"I'm done with my work for the day, and now I've a mind to do a little baking. An apple-cinnamon cake, to be precise
Equestria Girls - From the HeartAs she walked down the main street of the village, Twilight couldn't help but feel content with everything that was going on around her. Today was the last day that Flash had off before he would have to return north to the Crystal Empire, and yet, even knowing that, everything seemed to be perfect. The weather was beautiful, she was spending the day with the stallion of her dreams, and everything else that had happened in his visit so far, barring a rather rude interruption from her friends the week prior, had been pleasant. Even now, as she walked down the street with him, the ponies of Ponyville wouldn't stare at the as they would have done back in the past. Now, the knowledge that Equestria's latest Princess was dating a guard was old news to them, something she was truly grateful for.Equestria Girls - From the Heart2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

#52) Why do bronies feel the need to create so many gay shippings? It's weird.
Answer: Bronies make lesbian shippings because the bulk of the cast of "Friendship is Magic" are female, and bronies like to pair characters up. The idea is in itself nothing new, but ponies do seem to take things to the next level.
"I'm an Apple-Dash fan!" one person cries.
"That sucks," says another. "Pinkie-Shy is best shipping!"
On the one hand it's relatively harmless if people are just pairing the characters up for shits and giggles. When it gets porn-y you have to wonder why people are so obsessed with making these ponies fuck each other. It's a given that people will ship characters, but that doesn't make it any more necessary or purposeful. I'll never forget one hilarious instance where a brony made a comment on a person's DA page who was a big supporter of Soarin and Rainbow Dash shipping. They said that their shipping idea was 'shit'. Curious, I checked out the attacker's page

¿Por qué diablos lo estaba siguiendo? Esa es la pregunta que cualquiera al tanto de esta situación se estará haciendo, y eso incluye a Derpy. Es decir, ¿no acababa de conocer a este chico (o alienígena de 945 años)? Y en todo caso, ¿no había descubierto que los alienígenas en verdad existen? ¿No era eso suficiente por un día?
Tal vez esas interrogantes son las razones mismas de su reacción: la emoción de experimentar algo único.
Ella llegó al sótano y encontró la puerta de la caja entreabierta. No era posible que ambos cupieran ahí, y mucho menos el equipo tecnológico necesario para viajar en el tiempo. Pensó dos segundos en volver hasta que el Doctor abrió la puerta de par en par.
Y por cuarta vez en la noche, Derpy se quedó sin aliento, mientras entraba en el interior de la máquina.

"The wine is lovely this year, Madame Berry Grape." Celestia gave a short nod to the bowing pony. The wine was, in fact, not lovely this year. It was simply what a princess was supposed to say at the Autumn Equinox Banquet.
At this function, like most, the aristocracy played a traditional and subtle game of which-pony-was-better-than-which, a ferociously competitive sport of tiny score keeping. If you sit one space closer to the princess, you are one point better. If you wore a dress not haute couture, you lost a point. If your hat had an extra feather, you had an extra point, unless you attempted a power play by foregoing feathers and trying a coiffure done by a famous mane stylist, though that was a risky move. Fumbling through a step on the dance floor was an easy way to lose points, though that was never an issue, since no one ever danced for fear of subtracting their score. Winners were allowed to hold their noses in inc

So jealous of my fame, my prestige, and power,
Even when you return you won't sleep in my tower!
You think you can take me in this battle of rhyme?
Well, maybe you could... if you had more screen-time!

Tell me, just how does one become addicted to cake?
You abuse your power, sitting high on above,
Aww, poor Celestia, with no one to love!
You still getting letters or did your pupils grow wise,
You are just a troll pretending to advise!
The whole fandom would gladly bow down at my hooves,

Look into their dreams, yes you I implore!

To Be An AlicornSweet Apple Acres was a busy place in the spring. Two young stallions walked the fields with plows in tow, while a mailpony dragged in shipments of seeds and tools, and a couple more ponies were visible amonst the apple trees. Adding to the general bustle was a visitor to the farm who gingerly stepped out of the sky, looked around, and opened the gate into the main homestead area. A filly, not quite yet a mare, with a light green coat and straw-colored hair and baskets strapped to her saddle had been trotting through the area, and noticed the visitor first. She stopped dead in her tracks, eyes as big as the moon.To Be An Alicorn4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Oh, hello." the visitor said. "I'm here to see Applejack. Is she around?"
"G-great-granny Applejack?" the filly asked. The visitor paused, and nodded. The young pony kept her eyes on the visitor and pointed towards the barn. There, in a rocking chair, an ancient mare sat with a worn brown steltson covering her eyes. Her coat was gray but with a healthy sheen, a

Back on the (3 dimensional) planet of Mobius, Tails the Fox had stumbled upon the mirror and approached for a closer look. “Hmm...something about this mirror reminds me of Equestria...could it actually be from Equestria?...but how can that be??” he pondered.
Just as he was about to reach out to the glass, Sonic stepped out from the portal, forced to shield his eyes from the sudden change in lighting.
“Sonic! There you are! Where have you been?” Tails asked.
Sonic looked around as his eyes adjusted to the daylight. “Tails! You will not believe what I’ve been through! I met Twilight in-” he was cut off by a familiar evil laughter.
“HOHOHO!! Just like old times eh Sonic?” he taunted, riding in his Egg Mobile with Orbot and Cubot seated inside. A huge claw on the bottom carried a steel container with small animals trapped inside! “Come and get them! That is if you really care about them! HOHOHO!” the mobile then flew off wit
FiM: Mort Takes a Holiday 2Twilight Sparkle looked at the pendulum clock that hung on the wall, the hands showing that the night was getting late. Stifling a yawn, she rubbed the bags from under her eyes and returned her attention to the matter at hoof; her friends had become involved in a dangerous, high-stakes, winner-take-all game. One that, at any moment, could send any one of them tumbling into an abyss that was virtually impossible to escape. Success or failure, it all rode on a little strategy, some negotiation skills, and a lot of luck.FiM: Mort Takes a Holiday 24 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Twilight Sparkle moaned miserably as she moved her tiara game piece three spaces, landing on one of the more nefarious squares: GO TO JAIL.

Lightning Dust was clearly in a fairly bad mood today. But then, she had every right to be, given her surroundings. For this was not the green and lush field of Equestria. No, this was a place few ponies ever came, or even knew that much about. A vast dry expanse of barren rocks, mud and sand, stretching as far as the eye could see. It was hot. It was unpleasant. It was the last place anypony would ever want to find themselves if they had the choice.
This was the kind of place mares would want their children about. The stereotypical place "bad little ponies" would go. In truth nopony would ever be so cruel as to send one of their own out here. For this was not a place for the feint of heart. Those who came out here only ever knew hardship. And those were the lucky ones, for this place was known to be the home of terrible beasts and other horrors that rivalled even the monsters of the Everfree Forest.

"Derpy...please get off." she said.
"It's my day off!" came the enthusiastic reply. Carrot Top groaned as a wave of warm, coffee-flavored air washed over her.
"That's great. Get off." Carrot Top replied. She heard a shift and slowly the weight lifted off of her. A small thunk let her know that Ditzy Doo Hooves, better known as Derpy Hooves, was seated on the floor beside her. She finally opened her eyes. The gray pegasus had a content smile, watching her. However, Derpy's gaze never stayed still for more than a moment. Slowly, as if with a mind (and short attention span) of its own, one of her eyes began to wander. It casually made its way around until it was apparently gazing at the ceiling. Derpy blew upw

Your tilted eyes

But Fate had decided,
Your eyes to move about
A simple mistake,

But there you stood,
And begat our glee.

Our ideas your yolk

We built you a family,
Our love it did swell!

You held us together
Your strange off put eyes
Kept us in tether

You showed up more,
In fantastic direction!
We saw you around
From background to fore
Your presence keeping
A state of our lore.

That moment so grand,
One only we
Could ever understand

We had waited at length
When it graced over us,
We all felt its strength.

Rainbow Dash stood before the entrance to the Everfree Forest, gazing up at the dark clouds above her. Raindrops masked her still tear-speckled cheeks. She narrowed her eyes and spread her wings, cursing her own exhaustion.
Rainbow kicked off from the ground, pushing upward toward the clouds. Thick raindrops pelted her face, forcing her eyes closed. Her wings begged her to let them rest, but she pushed on, regardless. Just before she reached the clouds, a sudden gust shoved her back toward the earth. She flailed wildly, desperately trying to gain control of herself. A solid wall of rain blinded her as she fought to regain control of her descent. Extending her wings at the last moment, she managed to level out

So the episode starts with Twilight leaving her home and going around town, singing the episode's first song about how great the day is, only to be interrupted by a splash of water. At first she thinks it's Rainbow Dash messing with the weather, but is shocked to find that it was actually Rarity, who is doing Rainbow's job, and even more surprisingly, has the latter's cutie mark, leading into the show's opening titles.
After the title sequence, Twilight asks Rarity why she's changing the weather and has Rainbow's mark, only to be told that Rarity thinks she's always had that mark and duty.

Shroud hated P.E.. Apart from a good game of hockey, he utterly hated anything to do with Physical Education. It wasn’t just because he was, by all my means, a nerd, but also because he had the grave misfortune of being a changeling colt.
As a male of his species, he could never grow as big and muscular like the mares of his species often did; the only reason the Changeling Kingdom conscripted countless stallions were because they made for good cannon fodder. He couldn’t get anything out of this class other than humiliation and pulled muscles.
The school auditorium/gymnasium was crammed with students from different grades behaving like a horde of zoo animals let out of their cages. The bad weather meant P.E. had been relegated indoors for the day, to the joy of lazy dough balls like Bigmouth, whose most arduous exercise included the trip from his living room to his fridge.
Shroud was sitting on the bott
