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

"Malfoy." He said, nervously.
Draco frowned in confusion. "Why so distressed?"
"Oh, no reason." Harry quickly looked down at the floor.
Raising an eyebrow, "Really."
Blushing slightly, "yeah, sure. Forget it, it's nothing. We better get to class" Harry began walking again.
"No, Potter. I don't get it. You're suddenly excited about getting in time for History of Magic? What is wrong with you?"
"You know me, always punctual." He laughed slightly.
Draco snorted with laughter. "That is so not true."
Smiling slightly, "Oh you don't believe me?"
Draco shook his head. "I really don't." He sat down at the nearest windowsill and gazed out upon the green. "Well, you can go to class if you want, but I won't."
Harry's brow creases, "Is everything..alright?" He sits down next to Draco. "You can tell me."

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 Romance2 years 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.

We can't believe you didn't tell us you have a coltfriend, and worse, that we had to read about it in the Canterlot Times. Why didn't you tell us? Your father and I always hoped this day would come. What say you and this "Flash Sentry" join us for dinner sometime? In fact, let's have Mr. Sentry invite his parents too, so we can all get to know each other.
Please write back soon, darling.
Twilight groaned as she finished reading the letter. She had intended to tell her parents about Flash, but only when she felt the time was right. Unfortunately, during Flash's visit to Ponyville, a photographer had taken a picture of them having lunch at the local restaurant. The next thing Twilight knew, that picture was on the front page of every major newspaper in Equestria, joined by such headlines as "The Princess and the Guard!", and "Newest Princess Finds Love!" It was mortifying, to say the least, having her first relationship broadcast t

Twilight was riding the express train home to Ponyville. At the moment, she was so giddy she could barely sit still. She had just been on her very first date with a stallion.
A few hours before...
Twilight and Flash Sentry, after muddling through their confessions of being attracted to each other, had decided to go to lunch together. They had travelled to a small diner, not far from the Crystal castle. Once they had ordered their food and sat down to eat it, Twilight became aware that some of the other patrons were staring at them. Clearly, they considered a princess having lunch with a guard to be a matter of extreme interest. Having so many eyes on her made Twilight feel self-conscious.
"Maybe we should have gone somewhere a little more... private." She cringed.
"Hey, relax." Flash smiled, gently placing his hoof on hers. "Let's not worry about them. Let's just focus on each other. What do you say?"
As she looked into Flash's kind eyes, Twilight found it incr

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."
"Funny." Twilight said drily. As they finally reached school, she gave Dusk his lunch in a paper bag, and a kiss on the cheek. "Have a great day, honey."
"I will, mom!" Dusk smiled.
"Go get 'em, sport." Flash chuckled.
"You know it!" Dusk nodded, turning and dashing through the entrance.

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.

Slowly but surely, word of Twilight and Flash's engagement spread across Equestria. Every newspaper in the land had presented the news for all to see. Over the following weeks, Twilight had received hundreds of congratulatory letters. She was pleasantly surprised, having had no idea how much the ponies had liked her.
Even Princess Celestia had taken time out of her busy schedule to extend her well-wishes.
"Congratulations, my dear Twilight." She smiled. "You can expect myself and Luna at the wedding."
"But you don't even know when the wedding is." Twilight pointed out. "And you're so busy..."
"Not so busy I'd miss the wedding of my best student." Celestia smiled. "We'll be there. Trust me."
"Thank you." Twilight beamed, nuzzling her teacher. "It really means a lot to me that you and Luna will be there."

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

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.

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.

"What a beautiful day." Twilight smiled.
"I know." Flash agreed. "And look at that sky. Just perfect for a nice flight."
"Flight?" Twilight asked nervously.
"Sure." Flash nodded. "You've got wings, right? Might as well use 'em."
"I'm not that good of a flyer, actually." Twilight admitted. "I can get up in the air just fine, but I'm always off-balance, not to mention strong winds blow me right out of the sky."
"Sounds like you could use a crash course in the fundamentals of flight." Flash noted. "Come to think of it, why didn't you ever ask either of those pegasus friends of yours for help?"
"Well, Fluttershy's not the strongest flyer herself." Twilight explained. "And Rainbow Dash? To be honest, she doesn't really have the patience to be a teacher."

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

"I happen to like those 'dusty old books' actually." Twilight declared.
"I know." Flash nodded. "But maybe if you eased up on them a little-"
"I can't ease up on them." Twilight said hotly, moving out of Flash's embrace. "If I'm ever going to be half the princess Celestia is, I need to learn all I can!"
"Hey, easy." Flash said hastily. "I was just saying, less reading would free up your time to see me more often. I've got to be more interesting then sitting at a desk all day, reading some musty book on 'proper etiquette' and 'royal speeches'."

Twilight trotted over to the door, opening it with her magic. To her surprise, Flash was on the other side, bereft of his armor.

What Dr. Stable discovered gave Twilight the shock of her life. The young princess wandered home in a daze. As she opened the door, she found Flash stood nearby, eager to learn the severity of her condition.

"You could say that." Twilight nodded, her face impassive.

It was just her, in her uniform and light green helmet covering her hair, and Mr. Stark in his expensive suit, driving across the desert soil.
There were two hefty cars, one behind her and another in front, but somehow she thought there should have been more security.
The vehicle had no air conditioning, so she had the window down to keep them both somewhat cool.
The warm desert air blowing through the car wasn't nearly as refreshing as fully functional AC, but she didn't care much. She was used to being uncomfortable.
It was silent for a few minutes, just the sound of the tires on the dirt, and the occasional clinking of the ice in Mr. Stark's glass.

Twilight and Flash's relationship continued apace. Their new-found proximity caused their love to flourish even more, as they spent as much time together as they could. Of course, Flash now being Twilight's official guardspony meant that he would accompany her on her royal duties. Having him by her side helped Twilight through any moments of anxiety over her work. Of course, they kept their relationship "professional" during official meetings, or royal appearances; It would not do for a princess and her guard to be all lovey-dovey while dealing attending to such matters. Once those matters were dealt with, however, they held no such compunctions, dealing out as much affection to one another as was possible.
