Nightmare Rarity - Alternate sceneSomething was terribly wrong here. Even at his young age, Spike could tell that something bad was going on. It had not been long since he set foot upon the surface of the moon, hoping to try and help Twilight and the others, and he'd still managed to get himself into trouble. The events of the past few days had been, to say the least, rather difficult for him and everypony else. The others had come here to rescue one of their own. But not just anypony, but one very special to Spike himself.
Rarity, the love of his life. The beautiful unicorn mare whom he'd harboured a crush on ever since he first came to Ponyville. But she had been taken by a force none could have foreseen. A terrible, dark power that had once claimed the life of another important pony. Princess Luna. That darkness had transformed her into the monster known as Nightmare Moon, and whose conflict with Celestia had forced the latter to imprison her beloved sister here in the moon for a thousand years.
Spike hoped very muc
Too many Pinkie Pies - Alternate endingIt was cold in this place, she thought to herself. Of course, it was a cave after all, so coldness was expected. Looking around she could tell that this place had been hardly touched in all the years that it had stood. At least until the events of the last few days.Too many Pinkie Pies - Alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Twilight Sparkle sat at the edge of what was known as the mirror pond. An ancient and, until recently, fairy tale place that dwelt within the Everfree Forest. She herself had heard of the tales, though only in passing as a child. It was not something she'd ever given much thought to. But, her friend, Pinkie Pie, had come here herself and, through the magic of the pond, made many copies of herself. She had done it in an effort to make sure that she was able to spend time with all of her friends.
The purple unicorn could not help but chuckle to herself. As always, she was just being Pinkie Pie. Only the energetic earth pony could come into a magical place like this and casually cast a spell on herself for the simple purpose o
Hearts and Hooves Day - Missing SceneThe sun was shining brightly today. The sky was a clear blue and everywhere you went in the parks of Canterlot, ponies were smiling and laughing.Hearts and Hooves Day - Missing Scene3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But then, they had good reason to be happy. For this was hearts and Hooves day. And on this day, like it was every year, love was in the air. Mares and stallions alike spent the day with their "very special someponies". You could not go two steps forward without laying your eyes on some happy couple enjoying each others company.
But sitting on a grassy hill in the middle of the park, was one pony who did not have a smile upon his face. A white stallion with a blue mane, wearing a rather ornate red uniform of a captain, who sat there on the top of the hill, and was experiencing worry like never before.
Over the course of his time as a member of the royal guard, he had been against many things that might cause other ponies to quake with fear. He had faced down raiding parties of dogs without hesitation. He's fended off hydras and manticores. He
Friendship is magic - Alternate endingShe almost couldn't believe her eyes. After what seemed like a night that would never end, the sun was finally rising. Twilight stood in the middle of the ruined castle, surrounded by the friends she'd made. Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rarity and Pinkie Pie. All of them had, much to her surprise, become incredibly important to her, and together, they'd achieved a great victory. Not only had they discovered the long-lost elements of harmony, but in doing so, they had also vanquished the mare who had threatened the land with eternal night. Nightmare Moon.Friendship is magic - Alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But now that they had won, the sun's first rays were creeping over the horizon, and with them came a familiar voice. To her friends, it was strange, but to Twilight, it brought a smile to her face. She knew that voice well, and the pony it belonged to. As the sun rose, another light approached the window of the ruin. There was a blinding flash as the six mares covered there eyes. But when the light dimmed, they looked on in joy
MMMystery on the Friendship Express-Missing SceneAs she looked out of her window and saw the crowd of ponies gather in the gardens below, she could not help but feel more than a little excited. After all, it was not every day that she got to witness such an event.MMMystery on the Friendship Express-Missing Scene3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Princess Mi'Amore Cadenza, or Cadence as she preferred to be called, was watching the gathering crowd with great anticipation. Like many of the annual Canterlot events, ponies from all over Equestria would gather to this city. And although her work often took other all over the principality to meet such ponies, seeing them all gather together in one place was always a rare treat.
This day was the annual dessert contest and many had pulled out all the stops this year. Treats and cakes of all shapes and sizes lined the gardens, waiting for the judges to come by and pass their verdict. She had to admit, it was an appealing sight.
Under normal circumstances she would have loved for Shining to be here today so they could both enjoy it. Unfortunately for the both of them he'd bee
Wonderbolt Academy - Alternate endingAs she approached the blue door, she hesitated. Ever since Rainbow's denouncing of Lightning Dust, which occurred in front of not only her friends, but her entire squad of recruits, this was something she knew she had to do. But that didn't mean she had to like it. She'd been practically trembling on the approach to Spitfire's office. What she planned to do here, and what consequences that might emerge from it, were things she did not care to think about. But she also knew that if she didn't do this, if she simply kept quiet and went along with what had been going on, she'd never forgive herself for it.Wonderbolt Academy - Alternate ending3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She lifted her hoof and pushed the door open. Once open, Rainbow saw within the office. Spitfire was there, continuing to do what she'd been doing the last time Rainbow had visited her, signing autographs. It was understandable of course. Being as famous a flier as she was, Spitfire probably had to spend half her day doing this. Though it was clear from the look on her face that she did
Magical mystery cure - Alternate endingThey were happy. Happier than they'd been all day. The six mares embraced each other in the middle of the street, not wanting to let go of each other. Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and pinkie Pie. Six friends who had grown so close to each other, had now saved each other from a very miserable end. They had been through a very unpleasant ordeal recently as their cutie marks, the symbols of their roles and destinies, had been changed. But, thanks to Twilight and the bonds they'd forged with each other, they had undone that change and were back to normal.Magical mystery cure - Alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Twilight, right in the middle of the group hug, gave a long sigh of relief. She more than any of them had bared her share of pain throughout this time, mostly from the guilt she felt over her part in the event. For you see, it was her spell that had caused all this. A spell sent to her by her mentor, Princess Celestia, to try and solve as a part of her studies. Being the dutiful student she was, she tried
Magical mystery cure - A slow recoveryIt was a beautiful day in the northern reaches of Equestria. The rolling hills and grassy plains were, under the bright yellow sun, truly a sight to behold. Going straight through the middle of this lovely countryside was a single long train track, and upon it, a brightly coloured train. It was moving along at a good pace and heading towards a place that, until a year ago, was nothing more than a frozen wasteland. Within the train were a multitude of ponies, earth, pegasi and unicorn alike, from many different villages and towns to the south, all travelling together towards the northern Crystal Empire.Magical mystery cure - A slow recovery2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But among them was a particularly special group of ponies, and one young dragon. In a car towards the back of the train, a close collection of friends were all sitting in their seats, admiring the view. Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Applejack and Spike were all doing their best to enjoy the train ride, which was usually something they looked forward to. But not today. Bec
Griffon the brush off - Alternate endingThe entire mood of the party had changed almost immediately. A few moments ago, the ponies attending this get-together were all happy and enjoying themselves. Now, the whole things seemed to have turned into a disaster. And all because of an outburst caused by the guest of honour for the party.Griffon the brush off - Alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Gilda the griffon, and old friend of Rainbow Dash, had been invited here to attend this party in her honour, thrown by Pinkie Pie. Although Pinkie was famous around Ponyville for parties of all sorts, the fact that she was willing to throw one for Gilda had come as a surprise for many, considering that they hadn't seemed to be on friendly terms during the latter's short time here. But as bad as things were between them, they seemed even worse now. For Gilda had been the victim of a number of practical jokes that had occurred throughout the evening. And even though the other ponies attending had laughed at the spectacle, Gilda did not.
The latest prank, which involved the griffon sliding into the
A Canterlot Wedding - Missing ScenesThe ponies were all hard at work. Pegasi went about repairing roofs and ceiling ornaments, unicorns spent their time seeing to the restoration of the more complicated features of the palace, and all others busied themselves with the myriad other tasks that needed to be done to get everything back in top condition.A Canterlot Wedding - Missing Scenes3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The recent attack brought about by the unexpected and hitherto unknown changelings and their Queen, Chrysalis, had left much of the city damaged. By some miracle there had been no casualties, only a few injuries here and there. Of course it made sense. The changelings were, after all, using the ponies as a food source. It made no sense that they'd want them harmed.
Ponies all about the capital were grateful that the attack had left only structural damage. Damage which was easily rectified. But for one lone unicorns, the damage was far deeper.
Walking along the red carpet of the main hall of the Canterlot royal palace, Captain Shining Armour was looking uncharacteristically fo
Keep calm and flutter on - Alternate endingOnce the six of them arrived at Sweet Apple Acres, it turned out that things were a lot worse than they'd originally thought it would be. There had been bad floods before, but this was on a whole other level. The water was so high now that Applejack's family had to get around by way of makeshift boats they'd made out of large wooden buckets. They were all doing what they could, but it was clear that this situation wasn't going to get better anytime soon. A sentiment that Applejack herself now voiced.Keep calm and flutter on - Alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I've never seen the floodin this bad. They've built dams around here before, but never like this. What's goin on?" She asked.
The five ponies, Twilight, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Rainbow Dash, all stood on a nearby hill, looking down at the devastation the floods were causing. Further down the land, where the beavers had built their unusually extensive dams, Fluttershy, still bearing her elements, was hovering above the nearest dam and was trying to speak to one of the beavers.

Equestria Girls - New DawnThe sun's rays began to filter through the window and the curtain, giving the room a warm glow. Although the windows were shut tight, she could faintly hear the sound of chirping birds, which were what woke her up. Twilight's eyes slowly opened, and she allowed herself a moment to get used to the rising light levels. She'd had a very good sleep, and was not eager to leave it just yet. But, as the moments passed, a realisation dawned on her, and she suddenly noticed an orange foreleg gently draped over her.Equestria Girls - New Dawn2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She turned her head, and a warm smile crept onto her face. There, sleeping soundly, was her beloved colt-friend, Flash Sentry. He was lying perfectly still, a warm smile upon his face, one which led Twilight to gain her own smile. Last night had been unlike anything she'd experienced before, and it had all been with a stallion she loved. Thinking fondly on the previous night, she slowly moved forward, gently planting a kiss on his lips. There was a low, almost purring sound, coming f
Equestria Girls - Is it love?If there was a more perfect day to have a picnic, Twilight hadn't experienced it. The sky was a perfect blue, with no clouds in sight. The sun was shining brightly and there was a cool breeze. The spot they'd chosen was also good, on the top of a green and grassy hill, overlooking the town of Ponyville below. She and her closest friends had gathered here for a day of relaxation. Her duties as princess had been relaxed for the day, so they could all enjoy this time together. And that was something she was greatly appreciative of.Equestria Girls - Is it love?2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
For as much as she tried, something always seemed to come up that kept the six of them from spending quality time together. it was either some big disaster that needed their attention, or it was some individual problem one of them was facing. But today was different. Today, everything was set up just perfectly. Looking away from the bright and clear sky, Twilight looked at her friends.

Magical mystery cure - Original alternate endingSome of you may recall that some time ago I posted an alternate ending to the season three finale, Magical Mystery Cure. However, what you probably don't know is that the one you saw was not the original form of that fanfic. As much as I've grown accustomed to having Twilight be an alicorn, I will confess right now that, when it first happened, I felt rather bitter about it, and my original draft for the alternate ending reflected that. However, given all of the hateful anti-alicorn sentiment that was going around the site at the time, I thought about it and decided not to add fuel to the flames.Magical mystery cure - Original alternate ending2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Instead, I decided to re-write the fic, resulting in the more light-hearted and friendly version you all read last time. As for the original, I kept it on file for ages, until finally I decided that, rather than let it continue to gather dust any longer, I'd post it and see how people thought of it in comparison to the version I gave them before.
So here is the original draft of my alternate e

One day in Equestria at Ponyville, it seemed like a normal day.
"So Twilight is anything happening this week?" asked Spike a small purple dragon with green spikes, to a purple unicorn with purple eyes, purple hair with pink/purple stripes, and a spark surround by smaller sparks for a cutie mark.
"Not much from what I know Spike." Twilight Sparkle replied browsing through the books in her library."We should see what the others are doing in a bit."
Her friends Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rarity were probably going about their daily lives.
After awhile Twilight and Spike left the library to walk around Ponyville. At one point they were approached by a pink Earth pony with poofy dark pink hair, bright blue eyes, and three balloons for a cutie mark.
"Hey Twilight! Hey Spike!" She said cheerfully hopping over to them playfully."What's up?"
"Not much Pinkie Pie." Twilight replied with a half smile, with Spike riding o
Twilight's regretShe had worked hard this week. As much as she'd grown used to it, she still felt tired at the end of every day. Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Equestria. It had been many years since she had ascended to the role of Princess, becoming an alicorn in the process, and still the change had never stopped shocking her. The level of magic she had been able to achieve since her transformation was astounding. And not only that, but ponies from far and wide came to view her as a teacher. It brought a smile on her face to see young colts and fillies come to ask her questions and learn from her. It reminded her very much of how she was when she was their age, learning from her own mentor.Twilight's regret2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But it was not merely new experiences that this title had afforded her. In her years since her coronation, she had also experienced many physical changes that came with being an alicorn. The most obvious of which was, of course, her size. She had grown quite tall, towering over almost any other pony in Equestria, m
Hearth's Warming Eve - Missing ScenesPonies everywhere were darting left and right in a desperate attempt to be ready for the big event. The rooms backstage were awash with chatter and excitement and dread over the upcoming performance, and in the audience that now gathered in front of the stage, the anticipation was even greater.Hearth's Warming Eve - Missing Scenes3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
For this was the Hearth's Warming Eve recreation play. A tribute to the founding of Equestria itself and the ponies who had made it happen. Everyone in the city wanted to be here to watch it. And judging from the mass of crowds pouring through the hall's gates, it would be easy to assume that everyone was.
But for one stallion, this upcoming play gave him even greater joy. Shining Armour, using his authority as captain of the guard, had managed to convince those backstage to let him in so that he could visit one of those who would be performing tonight. Somepony he hadn't seen in too long a time.

Equestria Girls - Unexpected VisitOf all the places in Equestria where she could be spending regular time, this was not one she'd ever expected to find herself. Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Equestria, was standing in what, to most, would be little more than a ruin. It was the old capital of Equestria. A castle that once housed the two Princesses, Celestia and Luna, before the latter's transformation into Nightmare Moon. It was here, almost four years ago, that Twilight and her friends had first truly come together to become the bearers of the elements of harmony. This castle, much like the day in which she first saw it, were things that had changed her forever.Equestria Girls - Unexpected Visit2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"Are you sure that your family wouldn't mind me staying here?" Onua asked as he and Applejack were walking back to Sweet Apple Acres.
"Ya' already met Big Macintosh and Granny Smith during brunch earlier Onua, I doubt that they'll ever hate you." The orange earth pony replied giving him a wink as the orchid came into their view.
After a few minutes they passed the gate, Onua heard barking, running toward them was a small furry four-legged Rahi, with brown and white fur wearing a red collar ran up to them yipping happily waving its tail.
"What is that strange Rahi?" Onua asked as the adorable creature stopped right in front of him and started sniffing his feet.
"Oh that's my dog Winona," Applejack explained as she petted her."She's as loyal as any collie can be."

Mi'Amore's LessonThe doors were tall. Taller than any doors she had ever seen before. They were inscribed on either side with gold-trimmed markings. On the left a mark of a pegasi. And on the right, a unicorn. But even the sheer size of that door was nothing compared to the building it was attached to. The royal palace of Canterlot. She'd always seen it from afar, but never this close. Given recent events, it was clear she'd be seeing a lot more of it in future.Mi'Amore's Lesson3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

She'd only reached schooling age but rather than having arrangements made to attend some local school, that letter had arrived instead.

Twilight was quietly sitting and reading one of her favourite books, "Obscure unicorn history", and just doing her best to relax. It had been a long and eventful day for her, having spent most of it with her friends. They'd all had a good time here in the Crystal Empire, but now, all she wanted to do was mellow out before going to bed.Equestria Girls - One step further2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
As she read through page after page of her book, a smile crept onto her face. So many good things had happened to her lately, and as such she reflected over the course of her life. She'd gained many friends, achieved many things, and she had found love. She had the kind of life that mares and stallions might only dream about, and that made her eternally grateful. Sighing peacefully, she closed her book and got up, before making her way towards the large window-doors of her chambers.

Celestia stood there, just feet away from the burning wreckage of her faithful agent's home. Standing there looking up at the night sky. If circumstances were different, she'd compliment her sister on such fine work. But sadly, the circumstances were not different. They were dire. If this night continued, many of her subject would freeze to death or worse. Something had to be done.
But just as she was on the edge of despair, her prayers had been answered and the voice of her father had come to her. He told her that he'd come to help, lifting her spirits. It'll be alright, she told herself. With Cosmos' help, they would triumph over the abomination that now held Luna in it's grip. They would free her and peace would return to the land.
At least, that's what she'd hoped would have happened.

His schedule had allowed for some free time today but he'd spent much of it simply trying to figure out what to get for Twilight on her birthday, which was tomorrow!
