Spike was out of the house for once, away on an adventure with Apple Bloom, and Twilight Sparkle was making good use of the time to get as much study done as possible. She sat on her bed reading a book called "The Ursa Major in its Natural Habitat" it was a fascinating book, and she was so deeply engrossed in it that for a long time she didn't realise there was somepony knocking on the front door of the house.
"Is that Spike back already? Why doesn't he just come in the door's unlocked for goodness sake! Oh Spike..." But when she got up and went to the door, she saw that it wasn't Spike it was one of the Pegasus ponies who took travellers between Ponyville and Canterlot. Few ponies made the journey regularly, so she was surprised to see him arrive at her house unannounced.
"Uh, yes? Can I help you?" she asked, and the Pegasus pony bowed and replied:

Rainbow Dash didn't even need to check the screenname behind the post, or look for the Blueball Blitz avatar, or read the signature with the quote from Hayn Rand. She was used to seeing that unflattering image of Spitfire blown up with "FAT FLANK" written across the back of her jumpsuit in heavily fragmented red letters.
Dude, get a new image, she typed in response, and hit submit. Already someone had beaten her to the first response. FBS BANISH HIM. Rainbow shook her head. The rules were very clear regarding banishment, and Shadowfag was an expert at keeping just behind the red line. He would live to parasprite another day. She hit F5. He had already responded:

Before diving into this, I think some background would be useful. When she was young, she had dreams. Dreams of shining and of making others shine. She made herself and others look beautiful; for that initial interim she held high. When she fell (south of Ponyville, Old Manehattan-land) her dreams became nightmares, seizing her by the hoof and never letting go. She was taken and put into a bed of rust and red crosses. I was one of the few who had the time to give. She wanted me dead but it pained her to see me walk out those sliding doors.
Now, I won't pretend I understand. I never will know what she went through for those ten months and two days. She had a constant sting in her side that she claimed she could only numb by sticking her head in the stove. Her nightmares became easier during this time. And I like to think that I did my best in the time that she had to make her comfortable, even when the sting became too painful to breathe.
But let it be known that this w

Pinkie walked through Sugar Cube Corner. It was early yet, the shop hadn't opened. She watched the light from the rising sun play across the colourful candies and sweets, making them sparkle like diamonds. She straightened a display of lollipops until it looked perfect and she smiled at the beauty of it.
She walked out the shop door and locked it behind her, even though she knew it would never open again. They only had a few minutes left.
Putting on her best smile she bounced over down the street and towards a table where her friends were gathered round.
"There you are Pinkie," Twilight called to her happily. She didn't know, none of them did. Twilight spoke briefly about the the great adventure they had the night before. Pinkie found it hard to listen to the recap, but savored hearing her friend's voice.
"I just want you all to know, that you're my very best friends and I'm just so happy to be with you," Twilight finished and gathered them all into a group hug. It was a bit out of cha

"C'mon Twilight! Everypony's waiting for you at Sugar Cube Corner!" Spike had had to half-drag Twilight from the library, where she had spent the evening reading and drinking mostly drinking. He'd found her curled up on the couch nursing a bottle of vanilla-lemon vodka, the floor a pile of crumpled books and empty bottles, and she'd resisted every effort of his to get her to come with him. He'd tried to pull her by her tail at first, and when that hadn't worked he'd pushed on her rump as she dug her hooves in stubbornly, but now she had finally given up and was walking alongside him, swaying as she went.
"At what where? Sugar Cube Corner?" she slurred. After half a bottle of vodka, Twilight was three sheets to the wind, and she found it difficult to put one hoof in front of the other. In fact, they threatened to tangle up underneath her at any moment, and she was glad o

(The Limit... For Now)
On a secluded, massive cloud, Rainbow Dash paced back and forth in front of a group of assembled pegasi.
"You are the very first officially enrolled class of the Supersonic Stormcloud Speedsters' School! You are here because you want to be the best of the best of the best! Short of landing a spot in the Wonderbolts, simply standing on this cloudspace right now is the greatest honor you can receive as a flyer..."
Rainbow Dash's grin showed teeth and energy.
"...and one day, I won't even have to make that qualifier. This school was created specifically to train up and coming pegasus ponies for the most demanding of flight tasks--but for those with a one-track mind, yes, the Wonderbolts will be watching closely for exceptional students, who will be placed in a special elite group to serve as their direct backups

This story is the first of two bonus chapters for two different stories. My 'Of Horseshoes, Apples and Feathers' and my friend The Irish Brony X's 'Honesty and Loyalty' who was inspired by mine. These are not vital to the plot but makes some things more understandable. If you haven't read the stories, then go and do it! Specially 'Honesty and Loyalty' it's awesome.

The cyan pony was proudly looking at the necklace she was wearing. Gold, with some engravings and a big red gemstone, probably a ruby, shaped like a lightning bolt.
"Element of Loyalty? Ha! This is so awesome!" Rainbow Dash exclaimed in a happy fashion.
She looked back up and examined her surroundings. She was in a very old castle, seriously decayed and torn apart by time and the strange non-pony-controlled weather. It was dark, the moon was up, and she was here in this castle far away from Ponyville, but she was not alone. She turned around to see another pegasus, loo

The Hunt Begins
Just a...little further...
Somewhere in the middle of the Everfree Forest, a brown pegasus messenger stumbled through the trees, engaged in a losing battle with the limits of his own body. He had been walking for what seemed like days. His hooves were sore and cracked, his wings hung uselessly at his side, their strength long since burned out. His vision swam with fatigue; a single tree before him danced and waved so erratically, it appeared to be three trees in one. An unearthed root directly in his path easily went unnoticed. Until his hoof caught it, that is.
I can't quit... he thought, spitting out a clot of decaying leaves and mud. Celestia must receive this message... It needs...to get to...Canterlot... Pulling another chunk of energy out of some deeply hidden reserve, the pegasus forc

"Spike, take a letter," Twilight instructed the little dragon. Spike grabbed up his quill and paper as she cleared her throat.
Dear Princess Celestia,
Last night I learned some very valuable things about friendship. I learned that alcohol is the most amazing of beverages and has many wonderful abilities. With proper quantities consumed, the once simple task of walking down the street becomes as exciting as a climb up a steep mountain while at the same time every street becomes a dance floor.
I've learned that once you've drank enough, every piece of music is written just for you to sing along with and that your voice becomes infinitely more beautiful with each shot. When your good and intoxicated, there are no strangers, there's only best friends that you don't the names of and likely still wont in the morning.
But sometimes a pony doesn't know their own limitations and it takes a good friend to tell them when they've had enough. H
The Sandwich of MagicThere was once a magical, happy pony named Pinkie Pie who lived in Ponyville. She was friends with everybody in Equestria except Gilda the griffon. Gilda thought that Pinkie Pie was a crazy, uncool pony. Pinkie thought otherwise, so she talked to Twilight Sparkle the magical librarian princess and asked for her advice on how to befriend Gilda. Twilight told Pinkie that she should use her magical Pinkie powers to make Gilda a present. So Pinkie made a magical sandwich and gave it to Gilda. After some thought, Gilda ate the sandwich. The magic sandwich made her so happy, she exploded into rainbow griffon bits. The end.The Sandwich of Magic2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The Tumbling Downs was on the very edge of town, an off-the-path place where usually a stallion could be found with too many sheets to the wind and a few too many gold coins wasted on mead.

That she wouldn't be caught dead looking mangled and upset like this in front of her "social friends", well it was convenient.
Ambling in, the haggard stark white and dark lavender pony took in the sight of a clean, well-lit tavern. True to Ponyville form it featured (heavily) dark hardwood floors, smiley-face wooden drink coasters, the fashionable dry-eraser Specials Of The Day list. The place smelled of cedar and low tobacco notes. It wasn't posh and not the most popular in town, but the entire bar was eerily empty.
This was fortunate.

I got stationed in a company of misfits, I thought to myself as we circled Fort A for our final approach.
Looking down, I could see our small encampment; it looked like it had been through hell and that wasn’t too far from the truth. The outer walls were in shambles and had been patched with whatever materials could be found, giving it about the same uniform consistency of a quilt that had seen better days. Most startling was the command center. One wall had collapsed as though it were a sand castle kicked in by the hoof of some giant bully.
Most of the leaders had managed to escape before the roof of the building caved in, not that it had mattered in the end. After that little brush with death, our commanding Lieutenant abandoned his post. It was the

You're the pony of generosity
How dare they call you a monstrosity!
Such names makes me furious
But maybe they're just curious
But remember curiosity killed the cat
No wait I'm sorry, you did that
You love sharp things and knives
The more it hurts the more it thrives!
You wish the pain will never go away
How much longer can it stay?

Warning: Always drink in moderation, unless you too want to turn into a middle-aged writer of MLP fanfiction! I suggest medium strength beer for the rules as they stand, although hardcore drinkers may opt for shots.
Drink = a sip, while Finish your drink means what it says!
Take a drink whenever:
- the opening or closing sequence plays
If you choose to skip either, you must finish your drink. Shame on you!
- somepony refers to 'friendship'
Additionally, you must say "Friendship is Magic!" or finish your drink
- anypony drinks something, even if it's just hotsauce
Additionally, you must say "Confound these ponies! They drive me to drink" or finish your drink
- anypony refers to Princess Celestia
Additionally, you must say "Another thousand years!" or finish your drink
Supporters of the New Lunar Republic may choose to say "Down with the Tyrant!" instead

Derpy shuffled her hooves in the waiting room as the first contestant flew out. "How did I let myself get talked into this," she asked a pegasus in front of her who walked away in confusion. Derpy's mind drifted as her eye wandered.
It was barely a week ago, she was starting her daily rounds when she was joined by her friend Ditzy Doo. "Hi Derpy," she practically shrieked as flew in with her blue afro wobbling in the breeze. Derpy had to dodge right sharply to avoid being crashed into by her overly excitable friend. "Sorry about that," she yelled at the top of her lungs.
"Now isn't the best time, Ditzy," Derpy said trying to keep one eye on her ever drifting closer purple furred friend and the other on the nearby trees. "Can it wait until, I'm done with my shift?"

The bulky brown Pegasus slammed his front hooves down on the desk so hard, Ditzy Doo feared it would split in two. He positively glowered at the grey pegasus, his face just inches from hers.
"I I'm sorry, boss " Ditzy mumbled, shrinking back a bit. "Uh it won't happen again?" Her apology was phrased more like a question.
"Oh, right. Sure. That's believable " the larger pegasus snorted, twisting his black baseball cap haphazardly. "I mean, what are the odds of Ditzy Doo screwing up another delivery? I mean, that never happens..."
Ditzy winced at the harsh sarcasm in her superior's voice. Still, she managed to work up the nerve to ask the inevitable question.
"So " she began, trying her best to focus both her eyes on the angry pony in front of her. " Um how much are you gonna' dock my pay this time?"

"Please, Angel Bunny - just a teeny, tiny little sip?" Fluttershy brought the spoon closer to the little rabbit's mouth, but he pouted and kicked it away.
The pegasus frowned. "You just have to take your medicine, or else that sniffle is going to get even worse!" She turned and quickly poured another spoonful, but when she looked back, Angel was gone.
Fluttershy looked this way and that, but there was no sign of the little rabbit. "Oh Angel bunny, you're too sick to play hide-and-seek!" she scolded. She looked under the sofa, behind the little coffee table with its vase of moonflowers, but she couldn't see him anywhere!
It was then that she noticed the wind had pushed open the front door of the cottage and she gasped.
She quickly trotted outside, just in time to see a tiny little cotton-tail disappearing down the garden path.

A gifted unicorn who lives in Ponyville. She is the faithful student of the ruler of Equestria, Princess Celestia. She is very studious and tends to be analytical in solving problems. She has difficulties with making new friends. She is able to perform a wide variety of magic.
Alright, bare with me on this. Twilight would be an odd pick in the roster, mostly because of the way she fights. She would be seen with a book of spells floating by her side. She performs most of her attacks with the book and rarely does physical attacks. Because she has untapped potential, some of her direct moves would be really strong, and could be on par with Ganondorf's moves.

Her mane was done up in a formal style, an abundance of curls fashioned into a crown at her poll, the rest falling down the other side in a waterfall of blue and pink.

She blushed as she took the hoof Star Catcher offered her and they stepped together through the huge doors that led into the great hall of Cloudsdale Flight School.
The roof of the hall was open to the air and the weather had been expressly designed for the evening's celebration. A sliver of a moon shone down through layers of stratus clouds that lit up in its soft light like a veil of glowing yellow-silver. Gorgeous banks of cumulus surrounded them, and illuminated by the last rays of the setting sun their undersides were aglow,
