Oh it's -you- guys again! Oh whatever. For three and a half weeks I've flown with lead weights chained all around me that only I can see. Geeze. Since when do I wax philosophy? This is me! Rainbow Dash! I'm brazen, fast and relentless, and proud of it! Since when do I waste time thinking about this deep inner meaning junk?
Maybe that'll stop too once I stop feeling like Rarity chained me to 'Tom!' No you idiot, not the literal stupid rock I mean I've been feeling freakin' heavy since before we beat Discord!!
Look! I put on a SHOW for my friends! After I stabbed them in the back to save a home that I could finally accept as my home again, Discord decided it was a great idea to post a giant version of my mug on a giant floating screen for all of Cloudsdale to see!

Howdy. AJ here, ya know, Applejack? Been a little ain't it? Sure seems a heckuva lot longer than a few weeks. Unlike Nightmare Moon, (which happened in the middle of Everfree Forest in the abandoned castle of the Pony Sisters,) we beat Discord right in the middle of Ponyville.

Healing Ponies POV Series Second Family
By every right, Trixie should have had headed straight back to Hoofington after Twilight had cured her. But Trixie was hesitant.
Trixie had to spend some time exercising inside Twilight's library to rebuild her muscles after being little more than a lump for the better part of a month. Then Twilight insisted she did so outside. Trixie then asked (not demanded, asked ) that Twilight please (she said -please-) that she be allowed to continue her self-therapy inside until she was introduced to the other bearers of Harmony.
And on TOP of that, with Trixie's memories repaired, Trixie was still trying to figure out the nuances of who the New Trixie was and wanted to be sure before going back to her family. Though she had sent a letter to them that she was now finally well, Trixie just hoped she recovered and was back home before her family arrived in Ponyville like a horde.

There was only one thing left to do. Nyrtholotrot is bound by his word not to step beyond his sphere of authority. It had taken me just under an infinity, but there was now just one thing left to do. And it daunted me (a Concept of reality) it scared me, it belittled me, it filled me doubt. I hesitated. This was what parts of me had wanted from the beginning (and what parts of me had fought against). I knew this wasn't the same as Nightmare Eclipse. I knew this was different from what she did. But, "I want to do this...but...I don't know if I should. I'm...I'm scared."

''Little get together,' yeah right.' Twilight thought to herself sarcastically.
Who was here again? Too bad ponies weren't as easy to memorize as indexes.
There was Spike with Moondancer, er, dancing. Right, Spike's crush before... somepony. She had always just smiled and nodded when Spike acted nice around her while politely pushing him back. They looked the odd dance couple with a towering dragon as she she held onto his little pinky. Pinkie? The party had some pink, but not a whole lot.

They were jealous of us sea ponies and our music, for it was the one thing they could not create in their cold mechanical hearts. Their slaves questioned their almightiness if their masters could not produce music as beautiful as the sea-ponies.

In the blink of an eye, the early morn had turned into the end of evening. At least, that is what it felt like to the mare as she trudged through mud and brush with no discrimination. She hoped they would be upon the edge of the forest soon, for it had been a long day of physical exertion and no rest for food or water. She was running solely on her excitement at having almost acquired the biggest bounty of her career.
Twilight Sparkle walked obediently behind the bounty hunter as the sun began to set once more below the horizon. She wore a Mithril bracelet on each leg and one on her horn: an inescapable situation for any unicorn, including the one she was being marched to that very instant. Vinyl had taken a rope and tied it around her neck after the librarian had began to move again and grasped it tightly in her magical hold to ensure she would not escape.

My Little Muffin - Part 1 Soft, classical music echoed through the halls and rooms of the humble abode that night. It was a gentle tune, violins and bass bringing forth a powerful, yet emotional crescendo. For some reason, ponies liked playing Posh Ball's 'Canon in D Major' at weddings, possibly to reflect what they hoped the future would bring. Meanwhile, Derpy Hooves busied herself with fixing her dinner: she was not nearly conceited enough to play this sort of thing while reading.My Little Muffin - Part 1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The amber-eyed pony hummed along with the tune as she chopped up some celery to put in her salad, looking out her window and into the night sky. Although it grew warmer in her house by the minute, she didn't dare open the windows or else succumb to the horrid stench that came when hundreds of ponies expelled the contents of their stomachs. Derpy shook her head at the thought, dumping the chopped vegetable into her salad.

Cracks and snaps sounded quietly in defiance of the thick tension that permeated the air. The familiar dance of tongues of flame flashed against stone and wood alike, the thin extensions twisting and twirling before detaching from the body of fire and evaporating from existence. She could very well have sat there and eyed the tiny expression of both destruction and creation for hours and never get bored. However, a particularly loud snap brought her to her senses.
Soft, sad music accompanied the crackle of the flames; the brass sedated, yet powerful as a pony sang a haunting melody of tragedy and loss. She sympathised with the long-dead stallion. Soon after, the strings, led by a piano, took the lead from the brass and pounding rhythm section.

The sound of flapping wings drowned out the oppressive silence as the two mares trudged through the thicket of the ethereal forest. In a way, it was therapeutic for her to hear the familiar sound so close to her; to know that she had a friend who still earnestly cared about her. But... it also reminded her of something far more sinister and recent, something that still haunted her waking thoughts if she let them dawdle from what needed to be done.
"Let's see how she likes the Brazen Bull," cackled the phantom voice of a griffon, followed by her own pained screams of wreathing agony, turned into the snorts and grunts of a bull by the complex series of pipes. It was almost enough to make her stomach turn over... almost.
As much as she wanted to deny herself, as much as it would hurt to do so, she could not ignore the fact that, in those hours of merciless torture, a piece of her had d

Once upon a time, in a land beyond the magic of Equestria, there lived a resourceful and proud species. They survived and thrived in the worst kind of climate imaginable to ponies: extreme oppressive heat in the day followed by bone-chilling nights. They were the buffalo, beset by dangers both great and small, from poisonous snakes up to massive dragons who searched the desert for an easy meal. It was a hard life for them, but they lived it by their own choice, for they were strong as well as proud.
Our story starts one fateful day in the life of one of the tribes' younger members: a small calf by the name of Burning Sands. He was not more than ten winters old at the time when they first stampeded within sight of the end of their desert. Bound by the natural curiosity that binds all young of every species, he became enthralled by what he saw: a forest of deep green and brown. He had only heard tales of the f

As cool as it would have been to recount the epic tale of her escape, she found herself with no pony to tell it to. But what a riveting tale it would have been: full of flying kicks, cursing, and general bad-assery that would make mares and stallions alike weep and get on their knees, begging her to put some of that awesomeness into their life! Yet, even if there were ponies who would pay attention, she just could not tell the tale of her daring escape. It would be too big of a lie.
That demonic creature, whatever it was, LET her go. Not only that, but it had almost literally opened the door and kicked her out onto her flank. But why? If it wanted to, it could have kil- No, she could not die again. Utterly destroy her, or freeze her into a statue for all time?

Over a hundred ponies jammed the seats in front of them as they approached the central aisle, all eyes on the three mares.My Little Muffin - Part 3 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Presenting to the court," spoke the stallion after clearing his throat, "The plaintiff, Ms. Derpy Hooves of Ponyville, her personal translator, Ms. Pinkamena Diane Pie, also of Ponyville, and her attorney, Lady Twilight Sparkle of Canterlot."

Blinding white soon yielded to softer tones of grey before her tired eyes. She felt incredibly stiff, yet she found she could move with more fluidity and agility then she thought possible. Twilight Sparkle rubbed her eyes to be rid of the annoying blur that refused to bend to her will and tell her just what was going on. The last thing she remembered, those cursed dragons dragged her into some sort of glass tube after she failed to respond to pain anymore.
Yet, as much as she wanted to, she could not feel the pain from her injuries... or anything at all, once she put her mind to it. Did they kill her in that machine, or was she simply dreaming between the nightmares again? Every detail felt fuzzy to her, despite how cold and sharp she could remember them being. She stood in the small room, contemplating it before the door opened of its own accord.

Wind howled and thunder cracked throughout the valley as rain fell heavily from the clouds above. For the past two hours, the pony trudged through the sudden storm, only then beginning to realize the full implications of the destroyed weather factory. Ducking for cover was not an option on the slopes of the mountain and setting up her tent would only attract lightning. Why had she forgotten to pack that magical lightning rod?
The white mare sighed, her voice drowned out by the ferocity of the wind against her face. Twilight Sparkle (now known as Blueprint to everypony else) thanked her lucky stars that nopony was with her so she could cast a bubble shield charm, which stopped the driving rain from soaking her to the core. It did nothing to stem the tide of the wind, however: her mane and tail being whipped about by the turbulent currents.

It had essentially culminated in a conveyor-belt like motion with the waiter simply depositing a pile of marshmallows, fruit and sweets next to the fountain, and leaving her to it. She was in the very careful process of levitating a stick made of three skewers held together by marshmallows coating every millimetre of it's length into the cascading confectionery goodness.

It was in this precise zone of concentration that rarely came to Vinyl, that Octavia found her. Or, more accurately, Octavia sidelined in her a full-body-tackle-come-crushing-hug.

She had to admit, she was glad the cupcake had been ejected before somepony started the Hooflich Maneuver on her. Her normally porcelain-white face was blushing a similar shade to her eyes, and her heart was fighting against her rib cage as if it wanted to escape before the whole respiration thing got a little ugly.Allegrezza - Part Sixteen in Short Stories More Like This
Bonbon leaned back from her vigorous back patting, glancing at the tray before setting it out of both their reaches. "No problem at all. Sorry if I shocked you."
Her breathing had improved, but the blushing only increased. "Shocked? I'm not shocked, I'm cool with fiillyfo-with being with mares and all, it's okay. Just that yeh, I didn't know you could actually marry another mare."

She rolled away from her assailant, pinning her pillow tightly to her ears, and groaning further, just to drive home the point that she really did not want to be woken up at that moment.A Very Merry VinylTavia Christmas in Short Stories More Like This
Sadly, the perpetrator of the poking failed to notice this less than subtle body language indicator, and replied with a more fervent series of prods to more tender areas of Octavia's torso. She rolled back over to face her, now fully awake and even more irritated at how awake she was. Octavia found a pair of exuberant, ruby eyes glimmering from the twilit room. Apparently, Vinyl had no issue with an early rise, for once.
Octavia heaved one, last groan that deferred to a sigh as it dissipated into the air, seeing no relent in Vinyl's fillyish excitement.

What she had yet to grow used to, was the various fiefdoms of a hangover, and the condition she'd be left in upon visiting one.Allegrezza - Part Eleven in Short Stories More Like This
It must be said that she had never awoken upside-down on her own couch before. Octavia was genuinely unaware whether the pounding in her head was the alcohol permeating her blood, or the blood itself collecting in her head. Her head itself lolled over the edge of the couch in as graceless a way as could be imagined.
She shifted her body, trying to at least get the ceiling to go back to where it belonged, and return is space to the floor. This turned out to be more difficult than she had imagined, as her drunken self had apparently managed to delicately balance herself in this precarious position. A balance that was lightly stolen away as she moved, and fell head first onto the carpet, the rest of her body joining its leader in a crumpled mass above it.

Allegrezza - Part Three+One merit Octavia had to give to Buck Daniels, was that it slowly washed away any capability she had for tasting, until she no longer grimaced with each sip. In fact, she even gained the courage to move up to, 'slugging,' the drink, not that she'd ever be caught dead using that phrase. It was after several on-the-house glasses, from an unknown benefactor, that she found herself lacking the co-ordination to even pick up the glasses anymore. Her teeth simply failing to gain purchase on the sides. Upon blearily inspecting the two glass-mirages in front of her, she noted that instead of the stout glasses she had been given all night, she was instead looking at a slender, flute-like glass. A unicorn glass, for the only non-unicorn musician in the business. Terrific.Allegrezza - Part Three+ in Short Stories More Like This

Vinyl's grin spread across her cheeks, arching an eyebrow for good measure. Octavia gaped at her for a second, before experiencing a moment of blushing realisation. Her voice turned to a hushed whisper, tinted with laughter.
"Vinyl, you really can be so forward sometimes."
"What, I didn't suggest anything. Not thinking dirt thoughts about us again, Octavia?"
"Oh, but you...You really are the most irritating tease, are you aware of that?"

She supposed it would be best to keep a pretense of enjoying the show, even if only to stop Bonbon asking more questions of her. The little, green unicorn stood on her hindlegs, holding the lyre in her forelegs. Strange that a unicorn would want to play by hoof, not by horn. Her piqued curiosity held her attention right up until Octavia poked her in the shoulder.
"Hey! What...why are you here? You're meant to be in the backstage bit."
Octavia idly twiddled her hooves, staring at the floor. "Well, I was just wondering if you wanted to come back there and wait with me." Vinyl's eyebrows disappeared into her mane. "They...they refilled the buffet...if you'd like some more?"
"Sure, I'll just come with you now, then."

Vinyl watched from the living room, as the silence from the kitchen signalled the fact that Octavia was in fact not making tea, and may or may not be having a mental breakdown and stuffing her head in the oven. While Vinyl was partially worried, she didn't want to intrude in on her, mainly because her hopes might have been shattered, and she would've just found Octavia moping around next to the mop pail. Instead she tried to reach out her benevolent ideals using her voice.

She devoured the bowl's contents in a matter of seconds, throwing it into the sink before she assaulted it with a sponge and towel. She perched the bowl on the dishrack at the side, breaking into a light canter as she picked up her lyre case in a mint green aura of magic. Her hoof was on the door handle as she heard the light, airy call from the kitchen she had attempted to abandon.Heartstrings and Gumdrops: Part Three in Short Stories More Like This

David sat up and looked at his watch. The analog numbers flashed 5:00am on the screen. "AJ it's really early." He said mumbling his words. "EARLY?! The Apple family is always up at 5:00am sharp." She yanked the blanket off his bed pulling him off as well. "Now on your feet, you got a lot of work to do today, so we need to get an early start."
Applejack raced downstairs as David rose to his feet. "Well, no point in going back to sleep, might as well get going." He dressed in some light clothing; a t-shirt and light elastic cotton pants, mainly used for running. He walked down the stairs to see Twilight at the table leaning over a cup of coffee. "Morning Twilight." David said as he grabbed an apple out of the bowl on the table. "Ugh " was the only response he received. He t

17 years later .
David awoke to the sun shining directly in his face.
"Ugh up with the morning sun again." He grunted as he slipped out of bed.
He shook his head and stretched out his legs. He looked over to the mirror hanging on the side of the room and stared at the stallion muzzle looking back at him. His reflection stared back at him, the silver eyes unblinking as he walked closer.
He slowly put his front right hoof against the mirror to make sure it was really him. Even after being turned into a stallion and marrying Twilight he still couldn't believe that it was really him in the mirror.
"17 years you'd think I would have worked it through my thick skull by now." He said smiling.
His eyes looked over his stallion form once again. He had not only been giving the gift of a unicorn horn, but he had kept his original hair color. Dark black strands of hair covered his eyes along with a silver streak that passe

"A letter from Princess Celestia?" Twilight said as she opened the letter on the table with her magic. "Yeah, apparently she wants to meet me." David said laying out his best clothes that Rarity had made for him, along with his sword and ocarina. "I'm not surprised. You've been the talk of Ponyville all week." Twilight said as she finished the letter. "Rarity and AJ wanted to know where you were today. I told them you were busy practicing some magic you discovered. So did you learn anything cool from that book." She said smiling. David faked a smile the best he could, his mind flashing back to the destruction he had caused with the final fire spell. "Y-Yeah, I learned some awesome spells." he stammered trying to hide his shame from her. Twilight smiled as she crawled into her bed, "You should be happy.

"Ya'll mean to tell me that ya'll are gonna save the world from some new evil when it comes around." Applejack said surprised.
"That's pretty much the short version of it." David replied looking up from his now understood Guardian spell book. It was around 11:00 at night, and none of the Pony's David knew were asleep. They had all been called to the Library to discuss what had happened at the castle.
"I can't believe that you're a legendary warrior! You must be very nervous." Rarity said lying on a pillow that she had brought.
"Truth be told, I am scared to death of doing this. I have too though, it's my destiny." David responded. Twilight appeared handing out cups of hot chocolate to everyone as David continued. "The reason you are all here is because I need your help. While I have to master the spells on my own, I would like it a lot if one of you would be by my side as I learned a new chapter of spells." David said as he took a long sip from his cup.

Twilight watched on in horror as David struggled against the endless numbers of Nightmare Sol's shadow creatures. His burning blade swung back and forth, desperately trying to turn the tide in his favor. She tried every spell she knew to break Nightmare Sol's tendrils grip but none of them worked. "DIE!!!!!!" She jerked her head up to see David glowing a dark purple and leaping into the air heading for Nightmare Sol. She watched, entranced as the Dark Guardian headed down toward Nightmare Sol, hacking his way through her dark tendrils. "YOU WON'T STOP ."

"I've had enough of this crap" David said as he threw his suitcase on top of his bed. It was 11:00 at night as he quietly began packing the necessities into his suitcase. David was a 19 year old foster child. His parents had died in a car accident that killed both of them and left David with a scar from his forehead all the way down to the base of his chin. As he packed his things into the suitcase he reached into the back of his closet and removed his most precious treasures. He first removed a nickel plated silver .45 caliber pistol from a locked box. "Dad " he mumbled. David's father John had served in Iraq and lost a leg to an RPG, he had given his pistol to David at his 13th birthday.

David and his army marched into Appleloosa the following day. Most of the glances they received from the ponies in the town were those of confusion or concern.

A pony wearing a sheriff's badge said as he walked toward the group.
"Yes you could actually. I'm looking for a pony named Braeburn." David said as calm as possible. "Now why are ya 'll looking for Braeburn?" The sheriff asked narrowing his eyes. "That's none of your business, and if you want us to stay peaceful I suggest you tell the Guardian what he wants to know." Bio said getting right in the sheriff's face.

For only 5 ponies and a baby dragon, they certainly made plenty of noise. Between Lyra bringing on the music and Bon-Bon's constant supply of food (and repeated declarations about how they all were all just "skin and bones") the party was a pleasant blur for Ditzy.
In each eye she saw a different version of the party, the "original" with Pinkie Pie and a majority of the town somehow wedged into the library/home for a raucous celebration. This new version of it was more subdued, and somehow more intimate. Had Twilight bothered to stay downstairs, she'd have been privy to some of the stories bantered back and forth, some gentle jokes at Raindrops expense (the poor filly just couldn't stay awake), Carrot Top's over-the-top antics, Bon-Bon's gentle insistence for everyone to eat more, and of course

The mare in question, shorter then the average pony of her age, glowered darkly at the nurse. Her green eyes were filmy with worry and exhaustion, but she hadn't moved from the waiting room. Over the past few days she had become an installation piece in the hospital, her disheveled form and dark mane standing out in stark contrast to the pristine white decor. The waiting room was pleasantly carpeted with a few bench-like chairs for ponies to sit on. Despite this, Clockwork Key had been steadily pacing the same patch of carpet for hours now, threatening to wear a hole in it.

Rainbow Dash lay on a cloud, head in her hooves, looking out at nothing in particular. She had to keep her gaze down to keep the sun out of her eyes, and ended up pony-watching. Nothing in particular was going on; it was early enough in the summer that the heat hadn't gotten bad, but after planting season. Ponies went about their business in the late morning, a few deciding on an early lunch while most ran errands or still worked. Nothing special at all. At least, until she saw Fluttershy rushing through town with full saddlebags. It was odd enough to see Fluttershy in such a hurry, let alone with her packs. Rainbow Dash decided to see what her longtime friend was up to and took off from her cloud. She easily caught up to her Fluttershy by flying just above the ground.

The tables were beginning to turn. Twilight was finding more time between Celestia's attacks. Celestia still underestimated her, after all this. Twilight understood now. She had access to the plane of magic - and more than that, she was home there. Part of her mind stayed on that plane, sensing what it could. Celestia's attacks were easier to spot from there. Occasionally the alicorn moved through the sunlight, meager as it was, but Twilight could trace her. In fact, when she did that, Twilight began to figure things out. She could feel the magical shroud around Celestia. The shell she wore.

A troubling time for many a colt or filly, finding out who had moved away, who was still around, who was to be in their class and who would part ways. There was the matter of supplies: paper, pencils, pens, folders, notebooks, rulers, protractors... the list seemed designed so that for the first few weeks there'd always be some poor soul who'd have to tell the teacher what they'd forgotten while the rest of class withdrew their required item from stuffed saddlebags.

Trixie found the days passed by quickly and peacefully from there. She began to develop a routine. By the time she awoke Fluttershy was making breakfast, typically oatmeal, a warm and filing meal that started the day right. Trixie would take her mornings easy, still recuperating. She had gotten her books back from Twilight, and would review them, often in the garden if the weather held. She would then usually accompany Fluttershy into town in the afternoon, having lunch with her or just taking the chance to stretch her legs.

"Away with you!" Zim shouted before he grabbed the toy and threw it as far as he could. Unf

Zim, now without his disguise, watched as Rocky carefully and ever so gently added a few more bandages to his already bandage-thick arm. Zim didn't suffer anything severely; he had received pain, and learned to past through it. Nothing ached anymore after that fall.
But for some reason...he liked the attention Rocky was giving him.
"Okay, that'll do," Rocky said, turning to the three boys. "Thanks. I'll take it from here now."
"Yes, sir," Tommy saluted before he dashed off to his room for a well-deserved nap.
Numbuh 13 stood beside Wally as they slowly walked away from where Rocky and Zim were...his heart tightened when he saw the alien actually share a smile with Rocky.
"Uh, you don't think they're going to go out, do you?" He asked Wally rather nervously, his eyes never tearing away from the scene.
Wally sighed, an annoyed look on his fac

Mordecai assumed that the pony would like a moment to calm down a bit before he could try and see what was wrong.Earthworm Zim Chp. 14, part 2 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Twilight, having stopped crying, gazed down at the grass, deep in thought, but on the other hand felt a bit soothed because her good friend Mordecai was with her. She had earlier told herself that she needed to be alone, be away from her friends for a while...but Mordecai...she couldn't push him away. He was here beside her right now, utterly concerned and willing to show as much sympathy as she was willing to accept.
Mordecai gazed at her once more, the look of concern still on his face. "Can you talk now?" He asked gently.
Twilight sniffed a bit before she finally turned to look at him. "Hi..." She said finally, trying to put up a strong smile despite her shattered interior.
Mordecai managed to smile back. "Hey." His hand left her shoulder as he conti

Rainbow Dash flew through the sky, looping around in the clouds with Stonebolt gaining fast. She'd lost Zephyroak a while back, which only made the Pegasus more confident in winning. Stonebolt finally caught up, not nearly as fatigued as Dash was trying to hide, mostly because she didn't have to deal with the burden of wings; it was still something very perplexing that a pony without wings, or a horn for that matter, could fly, let alone as fast as her.
"Y'know, you're pretty good," Stonebolt remarked.
"I'm not just good, Stone," Dash said. "I'm the best."
"We'll see about that." Stonebolt rocketed off, making full use of her Thunder powers and leaving Dash in the dust. She quickly recovered and as the two crossed in a photo finish tie, Zephyroak looked up from her own cloud.
"Oh, right," she said, "The race. I've been wondering when you guys were gonna get here." The two were completely stunned and looked back at each other, then over at the relaxing Sky Trossel.

As Lord Xanatos looked over at his sister, he decided to make conversation to pass the time, their travel to the small town taking much more time than anticipated, though the corruptions slight recessing and stop was comforting to ease their journey.
"Is there something troubling you, sister?" he asked. She looked over at him with her dark plum eyes. If it weren't for the wind, he also would've heard her sniffling weakly.
"Why couldn't it have been you," she asked, almost starting to cry.
"What do you mean," he asked.
"You know exactly what I mean, Xan. Why couldn't you have been the Omni Trossel? You have more authority; you're more accustomed to being worshipped. I never wanted any of this responsibility. I never wanted these powers, and the only time anypony will go back to treating me like everypony else is when I'll be dead, and even then I'll still be revered with all the other past Omni Trossels. I don't want that when I'm gone, Xanatos." Paragontal's sobbing had beco

Leafwind walked down the path with her friends when Diamond Tiara stepped out.
"What's she doing here," Scootaloo demanded.
"I think the better question is what you think you're doing hanging around with my new best friend." the others glanced over at Leafwind. "I thought you wanted to be cool and not hang around these blank flanks."
"Maybe so, but I'd rather be a loser than be your friend," Leafwind said. "They're my real friends." Diamond Tiara glared at her furiously, Leafwind matching her gaze as a cage made from the grass and branches started to grow around her before trapping her. Leafwind turned back to the Cutie Mark Crusaders, her head hung low. "Sorry about the whole Diamond Tiara thing. Are we still friends?"
"No," Scootaloo said, Leafwind almost on the verge of tears. "We're best friends." Leafwind beamed. "Anypony who does something like that to Diamond Tiara more than deserves to be our friend."

Infernalo sat in his usual chair, intently reading the book as he got to a particularly engrossing chapter. Without warning, Frostburn skipped in. She stared up at him, her eyes glistening with excitement. Infernalo, sighing in defeat, finally looked down at his baby sister, smiling up at him eagerly.
"What," he asked irritably.
"Infernalo, I just learned this really, really cool trick and I wanted to show you because I know you'd think that's so cool," she said in a single breath.
"Fascinating," he said sarcastically. Infernalo turned back to his book, unamused by her display. Frostburn looked over his shoulder, as he glanced up at her in annoyance.
"Whatcha reading, big brother," she asked.
"Eltigo Morose's Interrogation of a Soldier," he answered coldly. Frostburn cocked her head to one side in confusion. "Look, it'd take much too much time to explain it to you. Why don't you just go talk to Stonebolt?"

Infernalo's family and their friends had been living in Ponyville for just over a month. Just like most of his time, Infernalo was sitting around the library in his favorite chair, now reading a new book somepony back in Seldreinia had sent him. Frostburn looked over her brother's shoulder expectantly as he turned to meet her gaze.
"What," he demanded.
"Well, Infernalo," Frostburn said thoughtfully, rocking back and forth on her hooves smugly. "You know how you said that none of this would've happened if it wasn't for me?" Infernalo sighed in frustration.
"Yes." She nodded.
"So that means that if it wasn't for me, you would've never met Twilight, right?" Infernalo nodded again, a bit more irritated. "Well, I guess means that you owe me something." Infernalo snorted and muttered something under his breath. "What? I can't hear you."
"I'm sorry," he mumbled.
"A little louder," Frostburn urged.

Infernalo and Twilight teleported back when Stonebolt came back in.
"Y'know, we could've just stayed for a little while longer," Twilight protested.
"So guys," Stonebolt said. "How was Seldreinia?" Twilight smiled as if waiting for somepony to ask that.
"It was so beautiful," Twilight said. "King Universal Reign seemed very nice. Infernalo even gave me a tour of your home."
"You met King Universal Reign," Stonebolt said, a bit anxiously. Twilight nodded, a bit confused. She'd never actually seen Stonebolt panic before.
"Is that bad," the unicorn asked.
"King Universal Reign only ever appears when there is something of the utmost importance. Though, I have to say, it's a mystery why he wasn't around when Frostburn released the Cursed Trossels. Speaking of, where is she?"
"Here I am," Frostburn chirped out of nowhere, causing everypony to jump. Frostburn was carrying Leafwind on her back, as well as a squirrel perched in her hair.

Aquashine was promptly thrown over the town border by the residents, landing squarely in the dirt.
"And stay out," the sheriff said with finality.
"I didn't care about your stupid hayseed tumbleweed mud pit anyway," she shot back. "I hope you're the first to die once the Cursed Trossels' corruption spreads." she spit on the ground indignantly and trotted off. She wandered on and on before finally coming across a blue painted wagon. A pony with a long silvery mane in a purple cape and hat covered in stars trotted out. Aquashine quickly dashed over to the pony who looked over at her with a bit of distaste.
"Who approaches the Great and Powerful Trixie," she demanded. Is she seriously for real, Aquashine thought.

Frostburn and Stonebolt both collapsed from exhaustion just outside the town. Infernalo was equally exhausted, but straightened himself up to hide it and shook it off.
"I'm not carrying you," he said bluntly. "C'mon, we're almost there. Just a few more feet."
"Why couldn't we just fly somewhere," Stonebolt gasped. Infernalo was about to answer when he came to a realization of the nature of the question. Why hadn't they flown somewhere? It's not like the Cursed Trossels knew, or cared, where they fled to and they weren't going to track them down. If the legends were true, their presence might envelop this town as well as the rest of Equestria if not stopped, but that wasn't exactly the same principle. Infernalo, not willing to dwell on this quandary any further, shook the thought from his head.
"Never mind," he said dismissively. "C'mon, I suppose we can find shelter somewhere in here." Infer

Rainbow Dash flew in through Twilight's window, the first time the unicorn could recall her not crashing into something. Something seemed a bit strange about the blue Pegasus, though. She seemed a bit dazed, and had a vacant look in her eyes. However, it was quickly replaced by her more typical personality after she shook her head clear.
"Twilight," she said. "I just met somepony amazing. He seems so mysterious."
"His name's Infernalo," she answered. Reading Dash's expression, Twilight elaborated. "He and his sisters are part of a long-forgotten and very powerful pony race called Trossels. They've been staying with me until they can do something about an incident that happened at their homeland of Seldreinia. It's all right here in these books Infernalo left." Rainbow Dash nodded, half-listening to her. Rainbow Dash wasn't exactly one for romance, but she was smart enough to be able to read between the lines.

"Happy birthday, girls," Steelmind said. "So, Frostburn, how are you enjoying your party?" Stonebolt narrowed her eyes in frustration. It was a minor annoyance of hers, and didn't come up as often as it used to, but Stonebolt and Frostburn were always getting confused for each other, even though the only physical similarity the two shared was their father's freckles.
"First off, Steelmind," she corrected him. "it's my birthday too. We're twins, and you know this. Second, I'm Stonebolt, and she's Frostburn." she said this while gesturing to her sister standing right next to her.
"Sorry, Stone," he said. "I've just been kinda out of it for the past few weeks. I was working on Frostburn's present." Frostburn's eyes lit up excitedly.
"You got me a present," she squealed, bouncing up and down. He nodded, leading her outside as the other guests followed curiously. When they got outside, a pair of shapes stood covered over by large tarps. "You got me two presents?!"

Owliscious settled onto his perch on the far side of their living space.
As he worked at his wings, forcing the melting sleet from the down, he kept one ear and one eye on the figures of Twilight and Spike. They moved about wordlessly, slowly putting the wet scarves across the hearth, the sound of their hooves and clawed feet sounding out above the crackling of the fire.
The owl looked at Twilight, saw her looking at Spike with a distant, worried contemplation. He spun his head to look at Spike, saw him avoiding her gaze, moving sheepishly.
An understanding flew through the bird, and he slowly but certainly hid his face from their view and attempted to doze. In that moment the bird was very happy for his Equestrian animal intellect that he was smart enough to understand, comprehend, even if he was unable to articulate.
At least, the owl realized, that meant that he didn't have to give the baby dragon The Talk.

As they cast off and raised their sails those ponies who still were allowed to make their living on the sea looked up to the first appearance of that sun with saddened eyes.

As he went back to carving his inlay he felt the soft, wet, warm touch of a muzzle on his back.
He turned around as a familiar voice called his name.

The sounds of fighting had already begun to echo out across the waves as they had all gathered on the forepeak, as they leaned out wide across the starboard side in hopes of catching a glimpse of what was transpiring.
"We can't cheer," she said to them as she walked back and forth along the forepeak, "We can't risk giving away that we helped them. Meditate for them, if you wish, but keep looking like we're just as surprised as anyone "
The crew looked on, their faces a sea of worry, concern and perhaps more than a few betraying just a little smirk of vengeance.
Many bobbed their heads, their mouths moving in time with soundless words, their eyes closed as they concentrated on friends aboard the other ship asking that if victory was not be that their transition to the Well would be painless.

At once the crew of Twilight's ship used their combined magic to pull on the kedge anchor chains, and the laws of physics took effect. The ropes went taut, and the brigantine began to spin around in place, wheeling to its starboard.
As she felt the ship move Twilight launched Commander Dju into the air like a rocket, tipping him gently in the general direction of Port-au-Prance. His trajectory was such that, if he had hit the water, there was something resembling a very reasonable chance that he may very well have lived.
Somebody had to survive to tell tales of the Purple Mare, of course.
If, however, he had hit the nearby swamps, well Gummy's relations had to eat too.

Twilight Sparkle had not wanted to look up, had wanted to keep bowing to the departing lord. Yet, at once she ventured a glance as he slipped through. As soon as he did she felt something pull at her, something grab at her from beyond the gate.
She had closed her eyes, had looked down to the floor, remembering her promise. She would do nothing; touch nothing, without the permission of the princesses.
When the two had begun to sing it had strengthened her, and she put the feeling aside. As the gates had started to swing shut the voices began again, and she sensed with her magic something powerful, something she was meant to dread
yet something so inviting.
Her eyes flashed open, almost against her own will. She shut them, but before she ha
