As the Wheel Turns
Snips and Snails were dripping sweat as they struggled to drag along the heavy wooden cart that dug into the ground. The cart plowed up the dirt and left a sizable trench in its wake. They looked at one another, tired and worn out from pulling the new tyrant of ponyville to the edge of the forcefield. They stopped for a moment to take a quick break. As soon as they had stopped, a glowing red whip snapped at their backsides from mid-air.
"Pull you fools!" the whip snapped it at them twice more. "Somepony set off the magic forcefield and Trixie intends to punish them!" shouted Trixie as she prepared to whip her subjects once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.
Trixie's head snapped up and he

"...and that, Spike, is the official meaning of life," said Twilight Sparkle as they walked along one of Ponyville's roads.
"Whoa, Twilight," said Spike, his voice laced with awe. "Really?"
"Really really!" said Twilight, smiling with pride. "At least, as applied to bunnies. Ponies and dragons are a teensy bit more complicated, so our answers will take me a lot longer to come up with. Probably years!"
"Well, I'll help you find them however I can." Spike chuckled. "Though somehow, I don't think Angel will be all that pleased with your findings..."
"Oh, wow, good point. Well, maybe Fluttershy can talk him dow-" Twilight paused, thought about the possibility for a few seconds, then said, "You know what, you're right. Let's just not tell him. He seems to have fun with his life--if all of a sudden we tell him that he actually has no true free w

Slowly a young lavender unicorn began to open her eyes. They fluttered briefly before she was fully awake. She looked around her surroundings, which was illuminated with moon light, to see that a small straw basket that would normally contain her sleeping assistant was empty.
She didn't think much of it, assuming that he was simply going to the bathroom, so she slid out from underneath the sheets and trotted over to her mirror.
The lavender mare looked at her disheveled mane and levitated a brush with her magic. It only took a few brush strokes before it was back in its normal condition.
The young unicorn looked downstairs to see a few beams of light peaking over the staircase. She assumed that her scaly friend was downstairs getting a drink or something to eat. So she made her way over to the staircase and trotted down, through the library, and into the kitchen.
Not to her surprise, she spotted her friend looking through the refrigerator. She prepared a dissatisfie

My Dream Seems Like A Nightmare
By: DolphinBuster starring: Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy
Thoughts stirred through the pegasus’ mind as the brisk wind of the night brushed past her sides, sending shivers down her cyan coat. The stars above her prismatic- mane glistened brightly throughout the night sky. Rainbow Dash laid on one of the few clouds that strayed in the atmosphere. Laying on her back and staring up at the stars. Her head was bustling with thoughts. Thoughts she couldn’t shake off.
Dash had flown away from someone that wanted to help, somepony that just wanted to pull her through the fog that she had become lost in. But of course; due to her natural stubbornness she had declined any source of help. Believing that it’ll make her look weak and pathetic.
“I don’t need any help, just fluff off!”
The words that replayed themselves in her conscious made her eyes burn along with tears. She choked them back, grinding her teeth at her rece

As the Princess Luna’s full moon shone brightly over the murky darkness of the docks near the boarders of Equestria, a large, dark ship made its way through the mist and made port right at the edge of the nearest port. The shadowy figure of the Unicorn Captain at once stood upon the main deck, a gleeful glare in his emerald-green eyes as he used his magic to levitate a medium sized spyglass to one of them, he scanned the horizon to the west of his ship, a small town catching his gaze. With a sinister smile he put the spyglass back into his coat pocket and turned to his crew of not only ponies, but also an assortment of mismatched creatures including Diamond Dogs, Zebras, a small purple Dragon and a skinny looking Changeling.
"We have arrived, my friends!" he called to them in a gruff booming voice. "Now I shouldn't have to tell you how this works… but what the hay, I enjoy saying it so much I'm going to anyway."

Protectors of the dawn

To duty, for all
Sentinels of the dusk
Proud to serve the night
Countless years spent
Without her guiding light
Servants of the Crown

Purveyors of their writ
A wing, a horn, a hoof
Outstretched in service, shadows lit
Aid of others
All sisters and brothers
Empowered by Shining Armor

"And there we are."
Rarity spun the magazine on the table to get a better look at the picture Hoity Toity had indicated. P Magazine had been absorbed by one of the hipper, trendier Manehattan culture rags at least a decade ago, but assorted yellowing issues like the one the designer had brought were still to be found in the library of any fashion-conscious pony worth their tape measure. Rarity's collection only went back as far as her days in grade school, years after the cover story on "Manehattan's Most Fashionable Families".
The picture she now looked at was labelled "The Toitys" in a very bouncy font. There stood a strong-jawed gray stallion in a freshly pressed suit with shaggy, but well-groomed facial fur. In front of him stood a small silver colt, dressed in a miniature version of his father's suit, his chest puffed out with pride. By the father's side was a tall, slender unicorn mare with a pale purple coat. She wore a scarf around her neck and an immense hat behind her horn. S

The eyes ghosted across figures in fresh white lab-coats; the room smelled of antiseptic and other hospital-like things An unnerving atmosphere had long-since enveloped this room The boy with blue eyes heard the lab-dressed people murmuring excitedly to each other. He couldn't understand what they were saying, and he couldn't help but become puzzled. He tilted his head to the side, his snowy white locks shifting gently and brushing against his shoulders, shrouding his beautiful ice-laden gaze. What is this place ?

My foalhood wasn’t so average… but it was my life and I will always remember it. Every morning, mommy would wake me up and ask how my day would be. She had a habit of wearing a bandanna to match the mood of the day; passionate red, slothful blue, worrisome amber, but when the day was going to be a good one she would wear my favorite color, a special pink. Daddy would already be awake and ready for work. He was an important negotiator who did business between the ponies of Equestria, and the dragons of Dragon Mountain. Every morning before sunrise, he would give me a hug before work. He always said it gives him courage when he spoke to the scary dragons. But I knew he was just kidding. Daddy was the bravest pony I knew, nothing could scare him, that’s why we lived in the forest at the base of Dragon Mountain.

You turned around, startled. A golden man sat across the aisle and a seat down from you, and he stared at you with a friendly smile on his face. Everything about him was gold. His skin, his eyes, his hair, his clothing, even the sword in his lap was gold. Behind you, a young man sat, his hands folded neatly in his lap, a small grin planted on his pale face. His eyes were twinkling behind small glasses. His eyes were a soft brown, matching the hair that poked out from underneath a green beret.

I love to fly,
but that's your least favorite thing Fluttershy!

Rainbow Dash kicked one of the last clouds in the sky.
It was a warm summers day and she was put on weather duty. Dash was supposed to clear away all the clouds to make room for Celestia's shining sun. There was a good thing about being on weather duty though, she got to secretly keep some fluffy clouds to nap on and nobody would notice! She hated when another pony cleared all the fluffy and comfortable clouds, leaving her tiny weak ones to nap on. Thinking about that, Dash realized she could use a rest. She lay down on a large cloud, feeling the warm sun to her fur.
"This is the life," she said to herself, "it feels like I'm on the beach. Oh yeah! We don't have beaches in Ponyville."
Just as her eyes were closing, preparing for a great dream about the Wonderbolts, something hit her. Not a thought, something literally hit her. Right in the face! Dash gasped, hitting her face with her hoof to see what strange thing that smelled like Applejack's farm was on her face. Somethi

Same practice session, new day. Soarin's favorite trick to perform gave him the same slight rush from nose diving towards the ground, just to pull back and rise towards the bright sky, which was something he had mastered. He saw the same accomplished smiles from the other Wonderbolts members after another successful day of training and practicing. Soarin' liked continuity and predictability in his life, even as a daredevil flier on the most famous flying squad in Equestria. He liked being so sure of himself that he could do a maneuver with his eyes closed and not miss a beat; he enjoyed that family atmosphere he received from the Wonderbolts every day they met.
So why, when life seemed so perfect, did he find himself so down all the time? It's simple: love problems. That's what. It had been a month since his relationship with Rainbow Dash ended; and it hadn't been the only time he had broken up with right as he fell for the mare, either. A year ago he had a relationsh
