A Flash of RomancePrincess Twilight Sparkle was on her way to the Crystal Empire's castle. Princess Cadance had requested that she perform translations for some books the Empire's ponies had recently discovered. They were written in ancient Mareabic, a language that few ponies even knew existed, let alone could understand. Twilight was one of the few who fulfilled both requirements. Knowing this, Cadance had sent her a letter, and Twilight, not wanting to let her sister-in-law and former foalsitter down, had agreed to help.A Flash of Romance1 year ago in Romance More Like This
Alas, due to circumstances beyond her control, Twilight was making the journey alone. All her friends were busy with important work of their own; Rarity had a large dress order to fill, Rainbow Dash had important weather work to catch up on, Applejack had extensive apple bucking to do, Pinkie Pie was planning a party for Pound and Pumpkin Cake's first birthday, and Fluttershy was tending to a sick bear.

It was that time of year again. Time for the Grand Galloping Gala. Twilight had received an invitation from Princess Celestia, noting that it would be her first time attending as a princess. Not only were invitations for Spike and the others included, but one for Flash. Through a quick relay of letters, he and Twilight agreed to meet just outside the castle on the night in question.
Rarity had, of course, gotten right to work on her friends' gala dresses, especially Twilight's ("It's your first Gala as a princess, darling!", she'd exclaimed. "You must look your best!"). The finished outfit was similar to the dress Twilight wore at her coronation, but less elaborate, and in shades of royal purple and lavender.
After an uneventful carriage ride, Twilight and her friends walked up to the castle, where Flash (Wearing the tuxedo Rarity had made for him on his first visit to Ponyville) was waiting. The second Flash laid eyes on Twilight, he became entranced.

Twilight and Flash's engagement ending up lasting well over six months. This was mostly due to Twilight's compulsive need for organisation. She had made sure every aspect of the wedding was planned out to the smallest detail. Both she and Flash agreed that it was going to be held in the Crystal Empire, where they had first met. Then came the matter of security. Knowing what had happened at the last royal wedding, Twilight had insisted that the occasion be well-guarded, putting in a request to Shining and Cadance to have as many guardsponies keeping watch as possible, just in case the Changelings (or some some other unsavoury characters) should try something.
"Is all this really necessary?" Flash asked, as he and Twilight looked over things.
"Necessary?" Twilight repeated. "Didn't you see what the Changelings did to Canterlot?"
"Not really." Flash shrugged. "I was visiting relatives in Manehatten at the time."
"Oh." Twilight said dully. "Well, it was bad. Really bad.

Of all the horrible things that Lightning had anticipated in the aftermath of the Cocoon’s fall, the fangirls would not have cracked the top ten. But they should have. In fact, after seeing them in action, she was convinced they should be number one. Yes, even above the food riots and lack of proper toilets.
One fangirl wasn’t much of problem. Actually, it was kind of flattering to have someone gush over all the awesome things she’d done (and if Lightning was honest with herself, she was pretty awesome, not that she was the sort of person to toot her own horn). After years of slaving away in the Guardian Corps, it was nice to be acknowledged. But once the fangirls started forming groups (Vanille preferred to call them packs)… that was when things started to get ugly.
Much like a pride of lions stirred into a frenzy of berserk bloodlust by a wounded gazelle, the adoration of one fangirl amplified the adoration of all the other fangirls. Polit

Lightning opened her eyes.
Only failure greeted her.
There was no new world.
There was no salvation.
There was only an endless expanse of white light stretching out in all directions. Above her, the sky was awash with newly born stars. Each breath she took was the passing of an age, each beating of her heart a thousand lifetimes. Then the stars faded, dying one by one until all was still and quiet. Only darkness remained in the heavens, darkness and cold.
She fell to her knees. Beneath her, the light was cold and smooth. It was the icy perfection of crystal, not the warmth of the sun. She laughed. Crystal. Her whole life was crystal. Perfect and cold and lonely and now it didn’t mean a damn thing. She’d failed, and the absolute, monumental scale of that failure was enough to pierce even the inhuman numbness she’d felt since awakening.

Lightning and Serah
Lightning drew her bow taut and squinted at her target. It was a circular piece of wood about a hundred yards away with a series of concentric circles painted on the front. It shouldn’t be that hard to hit. If she were using her gun blade, she wouldn’t even have to think about it. A flick of her wrist, a brief narrowing of her eyes, and the target would have sprouted a bullet hole right in the centre.
But she wasn’t using her gun blade.
“Wow.” Serah grinned and tilted her head to one side. “You did a lot better with this shot – you actually hit the target.”
For what felt like the hundredth time since they’d started their little archery competition, Lightning fought the urge to reach over and strangle the amused smirk right off her sister’s face. Only two things stopped her: the fact that she loved Serah and the fact that she only had herself to bla

Dusk Glow, son of Twilight Sparkle and Flash Sentry, was currently a strapping two-year-old. Full of boundless energy, and infinite curiosity, he would race around his family's library home, closely examining whatever caught his fancy.
One morning, Dusk was attempting to discover what was under the couch when Flash pulled him out.
"Not so fast, young explorer." Flash chuckled.
"Aww!" Dusk groaned. "No fair!"
Flash took Dusk over to his mother. As always, Spike was by Twilight's side, looking more or less the same as ever. A dragon's rate of growth was far slower then that of a pony; In the years that had passed since he and Twilight had arrived in Ponyville, Spike had only grown a few inches, his limbs becoming slightly longer and ganglier. In terms of personality, the baby dragon was completely unchanged.
"There's my little prince." Twilight smiled, kissing Dusk's nose. "Dusk, daddy and I have to leave for a while. The Mayor needs us. But don't worry. Your

Dean got out because of what you had done. He silently cried for days when Sam left him alone in the motel room. He didn't want to show him he was hurting.
Sam still had no idea why his older brother was upset. No matter how many times he questioned him, he would never get the answer or it he would just be told to shut up and go back to reading his book.
The booze ran like a river making him feel more depressed that he already was. He was hiding his feelings, the same way he hid them after his own father had died.
Even started to blame himself for what had happened.
Crowley was as bad - maybe even worse - as Dean.
The moment you had pulled that trigger he screamed, for the first time in years he cried. Rage took over his body as he demanded everyone to leave and when a few protested he slid the gun out of your spiritless fingers firing at the ones who refused.

Twilight was whiling away her time reading a book. Normally, she would consider this enough to take her mind off her worries, but not this time. She couldn't get her mind off of Flash. A long-distance relationship had seemed like a good idea at the beginning, but now, the time they spent apart tore Twilight up inside. It was getting so the longer they spent apart, the less Twilight was able to function properly. She knew something had to be done, but her birthday was coming up, with Flash having promised to visit. She resolved to talk to Flash about it then. But what exactly could they do? Twilight wouldn't be able to bring herself to leave Ponyville and her friends, but she couldn't ask Flash to leave his home and career just for her. Hopefully, they could figure something out together. Just the thought of them being together at her party was a great comfort.
Twilight smiled. Pinkie Pie, of course, would be organising the party. It was bound to cheer her up.

Dusk had just turned five years old, and a day he had been long awaiting had finally arrived; The first day of school. Rather then utilise private tutors, or home-schooling, Twilight was quite adamant that Dusk did his learning in as normal an environment as possible. A public school would help him make all sorts of new friends. And if there was one thing Twilight had learned in her time, it was to never underestimate the value of a good friend.
As Twilight and Flash walked their son to school, Dusk was barely able to contain his excitement.
"I can't wait to start learning!" He cheered.
"Yep." Flash smirked at Twilight. "He's definitely your son."

Tugging the hood of your sweatshirt tighter around your face, you continue tiredly down the street. Slipping your frozen hands—stinging at the wind’s constant biting—into your pockets, you turned the final corner before arriving to your flat complex. It was disappointing to arrive back home, yet again, with no further leads or progress, but it was an emotion you were all too accustomed to. After a climb of the stairs and a slight tussle with the key and the lock to the front door, you finally manage to enter the darkened flat. With a sigh you flick the lights on and shove the hood back as you slip out of your shoes. You lean back heavily against the front door with a sigh, gazing tiredly up at the ceiling.
