a teenage girl with ameythst eyes groaned
as she reached for her blaring alarm clock
and, right in the middle of a Perfect Dream, too!!"
Twilight looked at the clock..and, widened her eyes.
"TWELVE!!?" exclaimed Twilight
"Egads!, I'M LATE!!!"
Twilight leapt out of bed
and, sprinted into her bedroom bathroom at fast as humanly possible.
while this was going on, a Purple-and-Green dog
with a ruby jewel on his collar emerged from his "doghouse."
"(Loud Yawn) tw-Twilight??"
"NO TIME TO TALK, SPIKE!!" exclaimed Twilight from inside the bathroom
"I overslept..NOW, I'm late for school!!!"
Spike heard rapid brushing, gargling, a brief shower spray and a flushing toilet.
then, in just a few minutes or so..
Twlight came rushing out of the bathroom (as nak

"Death leaves a Heartache no one can Heal.
Love leaves a Memory no one can Steal."
a woman opened her ameythyst eyes and stared at the digital clock.
the numbers "6:17" glowing bright in the dark.
she sighed as she rose up from her bed.
arching out her back, and groaning as her spine clicked.
for some reason..Twilight couldn't sleep.
she reached out, ahd turned on a nearby lamp.
taking a moment to yawn, Twilight noticed that she was alone in her bed.
Flash hadn't returned home, yet.
Twilight gripped her face, rubbing the facial muscles slightly.
with another tired yawn, she threw back the covers and began to emerge from bed.
Twilight went straight for the bedroom bathroom.
she turned on the light, and went to the sink.
looking in the mirror..she saw her reflection, and widened her eyes.

Twilight: "so, We ALL agreed to spend our day with your father.
showing him around, ensuring he had a good time..
just generally being his friend.
(exhaled) course, I had detention AND a session with Vice-Princible Luna.
so, my friends had the choice of either going on without me,
or, WAITING several hours for me to finally join them."
Alex Jr: "Which did they do??"
Twilight: "(light chuckle) what do you think??"
[Canterlot High Schoolyard, HOURS Later]
It was now afterhours in the main schoolyard of Canterlot High..
most of the other students had either gone on home
or, were in town someplace engaging in their own school activities.
still remaining were Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity and Alex.
all of which sat at the steps of the main doors, awaiting Twilight.
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.

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

[Canterlot High, Gym Class]
a majority of teenage students were gathered in the Gym, dressed in school uniforms.
with them was their teacher: Miss Cheerilee.
"Now, Class.." began Cheerilee
"For today's recreational activity.
We are going to hone your Response and Reaction capabilities."
many students looked puzzled.
"Huh??!" said Pinkie Pie
"We are playing DODGEBALL, Today."
Fluttershy was shaking like a Hairless Cat in the Arctic.

Canterlot. The capital city of Equestria. A place held in awe and envy by those who did not live there. The home of Princess Celestia, the beloved monarch of all ponies, pegasi, unicorn and earth alike. And for many, this city was most famous as the centre of all magical learning in the land. Being a primarily unicorn settlement, that was to be expected, but the talents of many unicorns had been greatly improved by the founding of magic magical schools, one of which, the royal academy of magic, was headed by Celestia herself.
And today was a very important day for the students of that academy. For today was the mid-term exam. All of the school's top students would present the spells and abilities they'd been working on, or created themselves, and display it to a collection of j
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
Equestria Girls - On dutyOf all the days he could have chosen to do perimeter patrol duty, it had to be the day when it was raining. High above crystal city soared a pegasus, clad in the golden armour of the Equestrian royal guard. His fur was orange and his mane a dark blue, his cutie mark that of a shield and lightning bolt. Flash Sentry, guard of the Crystal Empire, was doing his rounds, flying high above the capital of the Empire, watching out for any potential dangers to the many ponies below.Equestria Girls - On duty2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But while most days were pleasant enough in the Empire, even a place as magical as this was not immune to the occasional bout of bad weather. And so it was today, as Flash was flying, that he had to deal with a torrential downpour and cold winds. Still, he wouldn't have been chosen to be a guard in the first place if a little rain could stop him, so he put up with it, spending many hours watching out for anything that might be worth reporting. But, as was often the case in the Empire, there was little to nothing to
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 ending3 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.

CHAPTER 7: Birthday Cake and Best Friends (First draft. Final version in the works)
Five more minutes until Orion's birthday party. Under normal circumstances, ponies would be expecting their guests to be fashionably late, but those ponies obviously never met the Pie family. Looking at the clock, Andromeda knew that the moment the large hand hit the "12," Berry and Cherry would be at the door.
They couldn't help themselves. Partying was in their blood as well as their upbringing. Andromeda figured any filly raised by Pinkie Pie would be that way. Waiting at the door, Orion and Andromeda smiled and readied to scare their friends in an unexpected welcoming. The twins were renowned for their sneakiness and pranks, so it was time they pulled one on them. Time slowed down as the final seconds inched their way up the clock's face. When the last second hit, the two unicorns threw open the door.
"Gotcha!" they yelled in unison before settling down at the empty sight in front of them.

Chapter 5: A Day at the Spa
Lowering herself slowly into the steaming hot tub, Fluttershy let out a long, content sigh while she sank into complete relaxation. Once she had adjusted to the rapid temperature change, she could feel every muscle in her body loosen while she closed her eyes and laid her head back. She needed a day where she could just unwind without having to worry about picking up the kids from school or anything else, and the spa was just what the doctor ordered.
“This feels more amazing every time I come here,” she told Rarity, who sat across from her. “I didn’t even realize I was this tense.”
“You never can,” Rarity replied. “It’s just the stresses of life, I suppose. Sometimes you get so busy in the chaos of the day that you forget how much pressure you’re building up inside. That’s what the spa is for!”
Fluttershy could easily agree on that. Even though it was hard to believe that they had

After all, it was not every day that she got to witness such an event.MMMystery on the Friendship Express-Missing Scene4 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
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.

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
Equestria Girls - Just Between UsTwilight, in all her years, would never have thought of herself as a romantic by any means. Even so, she couldn't help but think that what she was experiencing was about as romantic as it could get. She and her lover, Flash Sentry, were not on some fancy date somewhere, or gazing into each other's eyes on a moonlit night. No, what they were doing was what most would simply call "mundane". And yet, to her, it meant so much more. All they were doing was lying together on a couch in Twilight's home, the Ponyville library. Just the two of them holding each other whilst lying on a piece of furniture. Few would ever call this romantic, but to her, it was all she needed.Equestria Girls - Just Between Us2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The New Years celebrations that Flash had come down to Ponyville for had come and gone, and both had enjoyed their time together. There had been the usual festivities, fireworks and such, but to the two of them, what mattered most was that they spent it in each other's company. Now here they were, just doing what they could t

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

CHAPTER 8: Take Me Back (First draft. Final version in the works)
Orion had run into the basement very quickly, confusing his guests. Bucky and Peach Cobbler both knew that when it came to Orion, trouble usually followed things like this. Whatever was going on in his head was most likely worth seeing, so the two Crusaders chased their friend into the former-lab. Where the basement once was the headquarters for Twilight Sparkle's scientific discoveries, it was not used as much as it once was and had now become more of an archive of data and experiments rather than an active station. Its purpose, however, did not alter the feeling of wonder and amazement the two ponies always experienced when rummaging through them. Shelf after shelf was filled to the brim with books of many colors and sizes and countless documents laid organized in drawers and bins before them. Regardless of the room's organization, there was not as much space left, but Twilight always refused to get rid of any

Rarity was quite nervous as she trotted with the two boys on their way to Fluttershy's cottage. She didn't know Cerebral Comet that well, but she did know she should. Not only was this stallion her boyfriend's new Guardian ad Draco, he was likely going to stay in town indefinitely, and might need to make a few friends.
There were plenty of suspicions that Comet was sent to replace Twilight. Which was certainly a disturbing thought to the young unicorn. It meant the Princess actually thought Twilight was replaceable. To think any of them could be easily replaced gave her chills.
The silence was nearly killing the mare, so she decided to break it the only way she knew how.
"So, Comet, how'd you get this assignment?" She asked bluntly.
The psychologist looked at the fashionista, smiled and sighed. "I'll tell you when I figure that out. Best guess the princess asked Lord Inkblot who his best student was, and inste

Chapter 6: Swords and Spells
Andromeda sat in her room alone, reviewing the final draft of her work for the tenth time. For several months, every word, formula, and footnote had been analyzed to the most minor detail, but she continued to hover over it. She knew that this kind of obsession was unhealthy, but there was something inside her that compelled her to keep going, like a whisper in the deepest part of her mind.
In the old scrolls that she had found seemingly forever ago, the work of Twilight Sparkle laid before her, daring her to do better and live up to the expectations the world had for the daughter of an Equestrian legend. No matter how hard Andromeda worked to become a respected scientist, it was never enough. In the Academy, many resented her for her relationship with heroes and royalty, and most of her colleagues said that she had only been inducted because of her connections rather than her intelligence and skill. Even her own professors seemed unfair in their
First morningThere was no doubt about it. He had slept more peacefully that night than he had ever done in his entire life.First morning3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Dusk, had already awoken, but he refused to open his eyes, instead opting to enjoy this moment of comfort. He could lie in this bed all day if he had a choice, but the day itself seemed to have other plans. For not long after, a bird outside the window began to sing its morning song. Although somewhat irritated by this disturbance, Dusk nonetheless opened his eyes.
The sight which greeted his was a pleasant one. He had awoken in a magnificent bedroom, in a cottage way outside of the Ponyville area. The room was well furnished and the window opened to a spectacular view of the rising sun, whose light now filled the room with it's glow. He could not deny that this was quite a sight to wake to. He'd have to thank Celestia when he saw her next. Thank her for this wonderful honeymoon gift.
And speaking of which, that reminded him of another pleasant sight which greeted him as he tu

The morning sun rose, shining upon Ponyville. Beams of light came through the windows of the living quarters at Ponyville Library. Slowly moving across the floor until they landed on a small basket in the middle of the room, containing a small purple dragon named Spike.
The light woke him, and as he stirred in his bed, opening his eyes to the world, a question ran through his head, on one wall, he saw the answer indicated on a wall calendar. It was Saturday, and the day before, Friday, was crossed out. But he could still read what was well-marked in Friday's square: "Rarity's Funeral"
He stood, yawned and stretched his arms wide, recovering from a long night's sleep. He looked over at the dresser at one end of the room, and noticed a gold ring sitting on top of it. Getting out of his bed, he walked over, and examined the ring, it was exactly as he last left it, tiny fragments of the original gemstone were still lodged in
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.

CHAPTER 3: Country as Apple Pie
Beads of sweat poured down Bismarck's orange coat and chestnut mane as he made his way through the spanning acres of the Apple family orchards and gazed at what he considered the most beautiful place in all of Equestria. Having been working since the crack of dawn, he watched in admiration as the emerald and ruby hues of the apple trees began to glow a bright orange with the rising sun until the slowly approaching afternoon brightened the world around him.
Though the morning air was still somewhat crisp, the heat was greater than usual. Pulling the tip of his hat down to cover his eyes, the rugged stallion faced away from the apple tree, reared back, and kicked it with a tremendous force. A loud boom sounded from the shaking trunk and seemingly echoed through the orchard while vibrations from the impact shook the tree like a maraca until every single crimson apple fell towards the ground and into a large wooden barrel at the base.

Chapter 14: Things Get Complicated (First draft. Final version in the works)
Radiance's sapphire eyes bagged from lack of sleep as the sun's orange rays shone through the windows and cracks of the Apple family barn. Rest had eluded her all night thanks to the mix of pain from her broken leg and the vivid activity in her spinning mind. As she watched Bismarck's orange chest rise and sink slightly with quiet breaths, she continued to wonder to herself if this was all just a bad dream. So much had been happening to her that she felt like she couldn't even begin to cope. Within a day, she had gone back in time, broken her leg, gotten caught in a violent storm, possibly lost two of her best friends to that storm, and now the one who wouldn't turn back to find them was sleeping across from her. Pure anger burned inside her at the thought of Bismarck leaving Berry and Cherry to die. Everything in her wished she could stop him.
"How could you?" she asked aloud, knowing he couldn't hear
The BirthThere was frantic chattering all over as the nurses and doctors kept wheeling the patient through the doors.The Birth3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Princess Cadence was lying on a wheeled table, being moved quickly down the hallway of the hospital, her belly swollen over the last few months. Today was the day. Alongside the doctors was her husband, Shining Armour, who had her hoof in his as they kept moving.
"It's okay honey! Everything's going to be fine!" He said reassuringly.
Cadence smiled back at him. She opened her mouth to reply to him but suddenly winced and she placed her free hoof over her midriff. This clearly caused the doctors some worry.
"Her contractions are getting more frequent! Call in more nurses!" One of them ordered.
A nearby nurse nodded and ran off to carry out the order. Meanwhile, the rest of them had finally arrived at their destination, the delivery room. They opened the doors and moved the table and princess inside. As they moved in. One of the doctors stepped aside and stood between Shining and

Chapter 16: I know whose tears would come down to me (First draft. Final version in the works)
Rain poured mercilessly in the deafening wind while three young foals slept inside the small chicken coop. The storm's might was ferocious, its malice unforgiving as even the rising sun itself seemed to hide out of fear of the great power of nature and shone only scarcely through the dismal blanket of the intimidating clouds. The heavy gales rattled the miniature house violently while the great boom of thunder shook the sleeping children to the bone. Inside their rickety shelter, Orion and Bucky slept side-by-side, huddled together to keep warm, their crusader capes shielding them from the cold. Their minds were blank, deep within the sleep they needed so badly. Time travel seemed to affect the very life force of all three of the Crusaders as they each found themselves too exhausted to even notice the rampage of the storm. None of them slept in peace but all remained unconscious. Out
