I don't know how long it's been now. Master Discord sometimes messes with my perception of time. Sometimes it feels like eons, and others -if I didn't have clear memories of LiarJack's little sister growing up and dying of old age (after Scootaloo died as an adult mare defying master) I'd think it all happened yesterday. The Elements of Chaos seem to have rendered us immortal.
Master Discord has no need for servants, minions or slaves, but he keeps us around anyway.
Liarjack is almost the only one of us who seems to remember how things were before . . . everything began.
She smiles and tells me that everything was rigidly frozen with order before Master Discord took 'control.' That nothing and no one ever changed, the world was caught in a predictable monotone cycle.
I'm relatively certain she's lying, it's hard to tell though, she's gotten much better since things began. I know she's only saying it though so I don't get upset, so I'm not angry and I'm g

Greetings and salutations! I am Twilight Sparkle! I know this seems gratuitous since you wouldn't be here if you didn't already know who I am but I feel it sets the tone for things to come. Or maybe I just want something normal and polite to anchor things down. Either way. A lot has happened since we last spoke.
I know you've all heard about how we defeated Discord and once again saved the world. But what those stories -won't- mention for the sake of the little fillies who read those stories is the weeks it's taken for the ponies of Ponyville and Canterlot to recover psychologically from the trauma inflicted by Discord (at least to where they can live their lives again). Yes yes I know, you've heard all this before but laying down the ground work like this helps me think.

I looked down at myself. The claw marks had healed over, though they did leave some recognizable scars. Guess I was going to have to rely on Fluttershy to do the modeling after all. Too bad, all that attention, all those ponies looking at me, it appealed to me, even if it scared 'Shy silly.
Then I noticed, almost passively, that I wasn't quite all there anymore. I was still standing just fine, but one of my wings and part of my hind left leg were turning into little pieces of light before my eyes and floating away, becoming impossible to tell from the white void. It didn't hurt, I don't think I even felt it. I couldn't see my insides where the little bits floated away. Maybe I never had insides, wouldn't surprise me. It was spreading.

"Just what in the hey was I doing last night?" I wondered. I got out of bed, expecting to feel that familiar dull throb of a hangover when I moved, but there wasn't one. Looking down, I saw that I was wearing my usual blue flannelette pajamas with the silver-embroidered stars on them.

The late night breeze was cold against Luna's face as she gazed down from the window of her chamber high in one of the tallest towers of Canterlot Castle. It blew in around her, setting the tapestries on the walls of her bedroom flapping fitfully. Far below, she could see all of Equestria, covered in darkness, and she watched as one by one the pretty yellow lights of the inhabitants' houses scattered across the blue and grey landscape winked out, leaving everything dark and still.
She looked up at the moon a mere sliver of anaemic yellow against the black sky, barely brighter than the tiny trembling stars that encircled it, and she thought back to how it had been so different once, a thousand years ago. Her moon had glowed fiercely then, fierce and beautiful, and Equestria had enjoyed a night-time wonderland where everything her light touched sparkled with an aura of blue-silver.

The alley opened out into a tiny square with a number of little shops opening off of it. There was a tack-repair shop, with newly-worked bridles hanging near the door to dry; an apothecary, with its tell-tale sign of a winged-staff and the thick scent of medicines and ointments which Twilight could smell from where they were standing; and a charming little...

Ditzy turned, and knew straightaway that the mare was right. The moon had grown huge, far bigger than usual, even during the spring moon festival, and instead of its stately ascent along the arch of the sky, it was headed on a near-horizontal path straight for the castle.
With both forelegs Ditzy waved the fliers to a halt, and as a group they hung bobbing against the night sky. The pegasi looked across at the looming white orb and began to mutter.

Luna, Lyra and Bon-Bon ReviewThe fandom that has developed in the wake of "Friendship is Magic" is largely something that I cherish and make a part of my daily life. I would like to consider myself actively involved in the community, spending a lot of time surfing Equestria Daily, commenting on various excerpts of pony news, talking to a lot of bronies both on DeviantArt and outside the site, and even lending my hand to a pony-related project or two. I love chatting to the many unique individuals who all have their own reasons for adoring the show, and I find it to be a thoroughly engaging experience to converse with other people of a similar mindset to myself. I have seen excellent remixes and mash-ups of the songs and scenes from the show and have been, frankly, amazed by the fan-made content. Only today did I see a custom Pinkie animation made by one very talented individual who should be offered a part animating on the show right away.

#10) I know a brony who legally changed his name to that of a pony. What's up with that?
Answer: Some fans are really extreme when it comes to how much they like the show/fandom. Some love it so much that they're willing to do irrational things, one of which is changing your name legally to that of a pony. At that point, you're most likely taking things too far. I'm all for expressing yourself and feeling free to behave however you wish (as long as it doesn't impact on others), but the primary issue with the pony-name thing, apart from the inherent ridicule that'll arise from it, seems to be lasting appealing.
Consider that the show won't be around forever. Whether it lasts for another year or two, it's highly unlikely that you'll be watching new "Friendship is Magic" episodes in 2020. By that point, it's reasonable to assume that the fandom will have slowed down a heck of a lot. Logic suggests that when episodes stop being produced, interest in the show will dwindle; som

#101) Why do so many bronies lie about their gender? So many (guys) pretend to be girls and it's weird. This one guy pretended he was a slutty girl pony so guys would sex roleplay with him and treat him nicer and flirt with him. Am I the only person who thinks this is creepy? You shouldn't lie about who you are, should you?
Answer: Of course you shouldn't lie about who you are. You should know everything about everyone. I don't befriend someone unless I know at least the following details: what their blood type is; where they grew up; if they have a history of heart failure in the family; when they started to walk; what their first word was; how many kids they plan on having (if any); and so on. The list is endless, and even then you can't trust people.

#13) What do you think will happen when the show ends? What will you do and do you think there will be chaos? I bet at least one brony will commit suicide...
Answer: When the show ends, fans of "Friendship is Magic" will be divided into two main divisions: those who move on, possibly to another fandom, and those who remain within the fandom. Personally, I imagine that I'll be moving on to pastures new, but I understand that many will be sticking around. Naturally, people aren't going to stop liking the pony 'thing' just because it's no longer in production, and so the fandom will live on, at least for a few years after the show ends.
My predictions are based on speculation, but I imagine that things will slow down quite substantially after the show ends. For example, websites such as Equestria Daily will start to run out of things to report on, and will instead become a hub for art, stories and the like. While there's nothing wrong with that, people who check the s

Chapter 15: Never Hit a Lady
Twilight walked the last few yards to her home, shivering at the cold wind that ruffled her mane. She opened the front door and walked into the familiar warmth. The room was dark and quiet, only the light of her magic cutting through the black.
A wheezing squeak from beneath her hoof caught her attention as she crossed the room. "What?" she asked herself out loud. She lit a nearby candle and found that she had stepped on a rubber chicken.
Looking through the dim gloom Twilight could make out the forms of five sleeping ponies. Smiling, she picked her way up the stairs to her bed where Spike was sitting.
"What are you doing up?" she asked climbing onto the bed.
"Waiting for you to get back," he replied. He paused, "What happened?"
"We talked. Not much else and then he left, said that if I ever needed him to let him know." Twilight stared at the blanket as she spoke. "I fell asleep and woke up a little bit ago. I think his brother was looking for him, that is

A silence that lasted no more than a split second filled the room, but it seemed to drag on forever. And then it erupted into chaos. Rarity's horn flashed to life, obscuring Twilight and herself. Applejack leapt over the table and urgently shoved Twilight into a back room, and Fluttershy followed. Pinkie Pie had completely disappeared. But Rainbowdash was faster than any of them. The cupcakes that had rested on her back moments before had now found themselves plastered against the wall.
Flim saw the Pegasus coming for him and moved to jump out of the way. That however wasn't fast enough. Rainbow collided with his shoulder with enough force to send him spinning into the door. Rainbow hovered above him ready to attack again.
Finally steadying himself, Flim shook his head trying to rid the stars that circled his head. Then he looked up to the flying mare. "What in Tartarus is your problem!?" he cried in rage.
"You!" growled Rainbow landing in a fighting stance.
Beginnings: Part 2- Chapter 3Sleep that night was short-lived, Rita found herself awoken by crashing and banging. Her hackles raised and she got to her feet in an instant- if there was danger, she’s be ready for it, no matter how unsociable the hour. As her head emerged from the curtains of her bed, it became clear that there was no threat, just the tiny puppy making a terrible racket as he continued his exploration of his new home.Beginnings: Part 2- Chapter 3 in General Fiction More Like This
“You mind keepin’ it down, Tito?” Dodger yawned, watching as the Chihuahua appeared from beneath the pile of plates that he’d sent flying. It seemed that the kid didn’t have an off switch; he just kept on going late into the night. Dodger liked the pup, but after long hours being kept up, all he really wanted was a chance to get some sleep.

Rita's Sister- Chapter 3It was late by the time Rita got home. Despite Willow’s apparent dislike for her, Rita was still all that her sister had and it was hard to leave with the vulnerable dog urging her to stay. Willow just wouldn’t give up, but neither would she trust Rita enough to join her as she went back to the barge. It was a wrench to walk away, but Rita reminded herself that Willow wasn’t the only person who needed her, and by no means would she let her family down. She quietly came down the stairs; it seemed everyone was asleep.Rita's Sister- Chapter 3 in General Fiction More Like This
“Been with your baby sis all this time?” Dodger asked with a yawn. He had not yet gone into a deep sleep and was easily woken by the sound of Rita on the stairs.
Rita sat down beside Dodger’s bed, pleased to have some friendlier company. She sighed heavily as she started, “Yeah; it’s been pretty rough. She’s made it quite clear that she hates me, but still she wants me with her all the time. I’m not sure if she

“Can’t sleep, Rita?” Dodger speaks quietly, presumably not wanting to wake anyone else. Had he been awake the whole time, or had my stirring disturbed him? I hadn’t seen him come home, I’d fallen asleep by that point; perhaps it was his movement that woke me.
I yawn and force my eyes closed, determined that if I tried hard enough I would soon drift off. Dodger doesn’t sound sleepy- if he was hoping for a late night conversation he was going to be disappointed. “Maybe I could if I’d just be left to it.”

Beginnings: Part 2- Chapter 2Coming home after a successful day, Rita was in high spirits as she trotted along the shortcut she always took, a wallet clasped firmly in her jaws. It had been a busy few hours, as she caught up with Scout, and by happy surprise, her father. She’d bumped into her father a few times since becoming separated from him on New Year’s Day, and he’d been hugely relieved to see that she’d not only survived, but found her way home. He wasn’t a particularly sociable dog, but he always welcomed an opportunity to catch up with his daughter. Rita was tired after the long and busy day, and was with relief that she saw the welcoming sight of the old barge in the distance. As she came down the stairs, a scent hit her, strange and unfamiliar. On guard, she realised that the voices she was hearing were not sounds from the television set, there were dogs down there. Her hackles raised as she braced herself for a confrontation, and she rumbled a low growl as she descended thBeginnings: Part 2- Chapter 2 in General Fiction More Like This

It hurt, but she came out the other end free of the burden and happier than she’d been in quite some time. Storm’s presence helped, the two hounds were seldom far apart and curled up together for warmth and security each night. In the days since she’d stumbled upon the deceased dog, Rita had been intent on making sure the same fate would not become of her and practiced sparring with her father at every opportunity. She knew that her tendency towards being non-confrontational was her weakness, and it allowed her to be walked all over by tougher dogs of which they encountered many. Had she not the support of her more imposing father, she’d have lost many a meal.Beginnings- Chapter 12 in General Fiction More Like This

Rita's Sister- Chapter 2Three-month-old Willow lay on her belly, staring into space. The humans had been packing their countless belongings away into boxes for several days, and by now only the essentials remained out. The pup felt ill, knowing that she would not be among the ‘essentials’ that would make the trip to the new place. It must be coming, it must be soon. Her mother had been crying all morning, and had spent a great deal of time cuddling her youngest daughter, trying hopelessly to provide comfort as she prepared to face the worst. Rita had already left, so early in the morning that Willow didn’t even see her. It wasn’t an unusual occurrence. Willow had seen less and less of her remaining littermate in recent weeks; Rita spent most days off gallivanting on the streets, and the pair barely spoke when they were together. It was a change to the close bond they’d once shared. Rita had once been Willow’s protector, the toughest pup in the litter taking care ofRita's Sister- Chapter 2 in General Fiction More Like This

The guilt that she felt for being happy, for having a new family, was growing ever stronger as she thought of Willow out in the cold, all by herself. As she became more and more withdrawn, Dodger tried to reach her, constantly showing off and playing up to Rita more than ever before, but he could not distract her from the nagging feeling that she needed to be out there searching, rather than enjoying the new life she had. In her misery, Rita felt like a burden to Fagin as she struggled to concentrate on her work. It had been several days since she’d managed to bring him anything useful, and it was clear that she’d gotten herself into a rut. While Rita couldn’t keep her mind off Willow, she couldn’t spend much time actively looking for her sister, not with her friends constantly demanding her attention.

Beginnings- Chapter 13It happened so fast; one minute Storm was right in front of Rita, she kept track of his ringed tail as he moved through the enormous, pushing, shoving crowd, the next, he was gone. There were just too many people, jam-packed together, pushing, shoving; Rita had lost sight of her father for just a moment and that was all it took. Calling out for him was hopeless, it was only drowned out. Starting to panic, she climbed up onto the roof of a nearby car, surely a better vantage point. The crowd was so thick, and Rita soon realised that seeing a dog, very short compared to the humans that milled about all around, amongst the masses would be all but impossible. She whined, knowing that her worst fears had been realised. It had taken a matter of seconds, but she was alone once more. She kept weaving through the countless legs of the revellers, trying desperately to ignore the feeling of dread from deep within her- if she kept trying maybe, just maybe she might find her father.Beginnings- Chapter 13 in General Fiction More Like This

The stranger glanced Rita’s way as he saw her, and smiled gently, looking away again so as to not make her feel uncomfortable. “Hiya, squirt, you hang around here a lot don’t ya?”

Beginnings- Chapter 7A month had passed, and Rita was settling into her new life. They’d managed to avoid any more serious run-ins with unfriendly canines- having a dog as large as Einstein around acted as a deterrent to most, and Rita was well and truly finding her feet. She was coming up to four months old, and becoming rather gangly. Her days were happy; she had a ball exploring the city streets and with her family she felt a sense of belonging like she’d never had before, it was just the long and lonely nights that had her troubled. Since her first night at the barge, Rita had not a single night of uninterrupted sleep as she struggled with the guilt she felt for leaving her sister. It was easy enough to just push the thoughts that haunted her to the back of her mind when she had the distraction of her friends, her work and the excitement of the city, but late at night she was alone with the storm raging inside her head.

She felt like she could do anything, especially after what she had just said to Twilight. She looked up at the sky for a moment and realized that all she had done was admit to liking her, nothing more. Her victorious attitude deflated slightly as she imagined Twilight waving aside what she had said as little more than an acknowledgement of friendship. She made a silent vow to properly express herself when the next ideal moment came along.Luna's Best Night Ever: 6 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The streets were pleasantly quiet and Luna relished the peace. Vendors were packing away their goods and closing shop for the day and everypony was making the slow, lazy trip home from wherever their day had taken them. The setting sun turned their shadows into tall, majestic creatures that roamed the streets with elongated strides that carried them a few graceful inches before halting.

Luna's Best Night Ever 9Sleep always felt strange to Luna. It was like willingly entering a void, shutting out the world and entering a place where only she existed. Other ponies dreamed when night came, but often Luna felt like the hours she spent awake were the dream and the time she spent asleep was the cold reality, crushing loneliness mixed with a pleasant sense of calm and ease. It was a sensation she had grown used to during her imprisonment, albeit not by choice.Luna's Best Night Ever 9 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She opened her eyes lazily and yawned, hoof reflexively covering her mouth to politely conceal the action. One by one her senses sharpened and her connection to the waking world returned. The stars had progressed of their own volition and she took a deep breath, tracing their paths to work out how far along they were.

It ended up somewhere between terrifying and shocking, and she smiled as she examined her work.

The cheerful melodies reflected the happiness that everypony else was feeling.

They were much too sweet for her taste but she continued to eat them in small, refined nibbles.Luna's Best Night Ever: 4 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Neither of the other two Elements present at the party had manifested a focus for their power, which made it all the more troublesome that the pink mare had apparently called hers forth.
