Note 3 - This is only labeled "fiction" because of several factual embellishments found in the original game; the story is, in essence, true to real life.
You Have to Burn the Rope:

The floor was rough. It stared upward with a burning look, that dark, primordial knowledge that one is being watched, pierced from some unknown angle by impossible eyes. Hewn stone gazed inward from all around. The rigid and dank cloud in the Hero's mind, so much an ironic beast to him, would not rise, would not dissipate; even as his mind drifted in and out of lucidity, he laughed to himself in a fleeting dream of conscious review: my own clouds I have hewn in twain, and yet this one, newly wrought, deigns to pas

Flaky sat pleasantly under the shade of a tree, watching the small ducklings follow their mother. She was only afraid of ducks if they were close because she was afraid they would bite her, but from a distance she thought they were adorable.
She suddenly heard the voices and laughter of Giggles and Petunia coming closer to her. She jumped from not expecting someone else to be here too. Usually she was alone.
Giggles noticed Flaky under the tree and greeted her. "Hi Flaky!" She said in her usual cheery voice.

Much to Twilight's chagrin, Dewdrop Dazzle was not gone the next day. Nor the next. Not even the next. The new arrival had divided her time between constantly following Twilight about with a constant barrage of questions; and vanishing off into Ponyville without a word. Despite the peace and quiet, Twilight had found Dewdrop's absences to be even more worrying than when she was hanging about the house.
This was one such moment. Dewdrop had skipped out of the house at the earliest possible moment, not that Twilight had complained. However, the thought of what the strange blue pony could be up to had been gnawing away at Twilight's mind, and so she eventually decided to venture into the town to track down her 'guest'.
The sky was still littered with grey clouds, but patches of blue was breaking through, and the air was fresh and crisp as Twilight wandered through Ponyville. Dewdrop was nowhere to be found. Perhaps she

They both stared blankly at the bright screen of the TV. Petunia and Handy both went to school together. One day, Mr. Lumpy assigned a group project to his class. He paired up his students randomly, joining them together. After that day, they became good friends, spending most of their time with each other.

She got up and poured herself a cup of coffee and sat at her kitchen table to drink it. After she was done she got ready for the day. She remembered that Giggles wanted her to call her. She made her way to her phone and dialed Giggles' number.

This chapter takes place where the last one stopped.
Author's note: there are a few things I'd like to say before I start this chapter:
1- When Flippy left the army, he was a sergeant.
2- Mouse Kaboom and Sneaky will sometimes refer to Flippy as "Sir", since I assume he was their superior in the army.
3- They still don't know yet that Evil and Flippy are separated.
4- Mouse Kaboom is deaf due to all the explosions he made in his life, although he can understand what people are saying by reading lips. Also, he is French (and so am I, well French-canadian, but still French), so I'll put in some French lines from him (with translations of course). Since they fought together for a couple of years, Sneaky and Flippy know French (they can't speak it though) thanks to Mouse Kaboom, so they understand him. Lastly, just for the purpose of having fun, I'll make him like a Casanova (Disco Bear style), but a lot nicer and more gentleman-ish.
