Where I Plant My Heart's Seeds
Rooster's welcome, untuned sunrise song
Wakeup call for the farmin' toil
Morning breeze greets the early wakin' folk,
Eat a strong breakfast; we're out all day long.
Smell the air fresh with leaves and apple scent,
Walk on path carved on the verdant fields.
Apple orchards waiting for their chores
Red fruits' sea, harvesting ripe.
This is where my heart and soul belong,
This is the place that I can call my home:
'Twas this land my gramps ploughed through, where my ma and pa lived too.
Where my line planted their apple seeds, where I now grow their trees.
In this soil I have my roots; here I can rest up my hooves.
Here I tend my seedlings' fruit here my heart's seeds grow and bloom.
Old friends, from tiny saplings fully grown,

Where We Once Cantered
I'm watching the timeline
The tokens left of those days
There once was a time when
I still resembled myself
In those pictures
Younger me once sew
The blanket on which
Older me now sleeps
Drifts in the past
Where we once cantered
We had no fears, we had no cares
There we once cantered
When we were young, me and my friends
I've lived a full life
I've reaped and sown my own share
Cradle of children
Harvest born of first seeds
I remember how I saw them bloom
Grow full of life
And how they faded away
Left in the fields
Where we once cantered
We had no fears, we had no cares
There we once cantered
When we were young, me and my friends
I am the line that's ending
I can now depart smiling
Wait for me one last moment
I'm on my way back to you
Where we once cantered
We felt no fea

The Great and Powerful
Last of the fireworks explodes in the sky
Stage is silent after the show, a success once again
Fans' approval still echoes here, the most wondrous of sounds
Left astonished of my skills, as if there ever was any doubt
Soon I will leave this town for my next stop:
Everypony should have the chance to see my fame
Behold peasants, for your mistress is here
Cheer me! Praise me!
The Master of Mages, the greatest of all
No point to challenge, whatever you try
All you do I can do better
There is no shame to bow 'fore my might
One day the whole world will know the Great and Powerful!
I've seen the horrors of Everfree, kept my courageous heart
Stood up against the wildest beasts, and walked away alive
No mage has overpowered me,

Guardian of the Solar Path
Ancient is the course of Sun
Olden are its kind, warming beams
Awaking the world for each day
When rising over horizon
For the new journey
Shine, give your light above their homes
In care of princess white
Gently leading her Sun
Above the tranquil sky
Mother's smile shines with the child
Caressing their days
As she watches over her child
Guarding its path (the solar path)
Guiding their daily lives with love
Follow the trail 'til eventide arrives
Let them enjoy the peaceful night with Moon
Reach out the ethereal
O, Princess Daylight
Radiant in life
Lighting their daily paths

Powerless their inner lights fade away
No rainbow of light, no end for more malice
Smug applause for the humiliated
Mocking cheer at broken companions
Depraved shadows of elements they once wore

Kindness cruel, honest liars
Generosity blind in greed
Laughter's died, gone are the loyals
Precious friendship twisted in Discord's rule
See the world around you writhe in its pain
As it's born afresh in anomaly
A grotesque paradox golden rule of the new land
Ponies' minds deform at His desire
Gangrenous reflections of their selves
Mindless fodder now, puppetry for His plays

When the Autumn Leaves
The wind brings signs of colder mornings,
Prolonging dusk surpasses the light,
Gone are those days:
Summertime of warmth and laughing,
Summer's time to slumber now
(For) some time
Reaped the harvest, filled the stocks,
Found the scarves and boots from loft,
Gathered firewood to keep our hearths lit and lively.
You can see how the time of green is gone:
Its course is old and fading, losing its vividness.
Months of winter holding near,
We are watching the autumn leaves
Glowing bright in their gilded colors.
Season of work after the summer growth:
Memories of the vivid days still in mind.
Season of change before the winter rest:
Painted world before the snow-white veil.

Since the Days When I Was Small
It was all so exciting
First time on the surface
With my mother, elder queen
We hunted the emotional souls
First taste of emotions
I swallowed the sugary love
First feast on emotions
I drank all of the sorrow's salt
We roamed the overworld plains
While relishing treats, the earthling souls' ether
I dreamed of the future ahead me
On the warmth of mother's lap
First feast on emotions
The taste of milt stayed on my tongue
First taste of addiction
Sugar of love and sorrow's salt
We watched the sundown
Since those days when I was small
We saw the fortress
I yearned to taste that joy once again
The euphoria in my mouth
Filling me with hopes and dreams
Raw force within the heartfelt
Passion of the young embrace

It looms in the north…
The echoes of cold dominance.
The king, the tyrant reborn
Waiting his renewed chance
To finish what had begun…
Drifting shells of the realm…
What's there… left… to protect…
What's left are filled with hurt and grief.
'Twas graying and tarnished,
The world they once called their home.
Despair and fear,
Tokens of slavery,
Left within the heartcells
In the lost, orphaned souls of the empire…

Lies, it's all been lies, all my friends abandoned me

Bitter, deceiving hate

By my friends' turned backs, by heart-breaking acts
The town I once knew turned into a nightmare land
This is not what I used to call my home..."
Sorrow and despair weigh her down with remorseless chains
Harsh as iron cold, anguish' crippling hold
"I just want to leave it all behind, forget it all
seek solace from oblivion "
Throw it all behind, tokens of dead ideals
Seek safe haven from the bliss of solitude

#64) I'm at college and my room-mate doesn't know that I like MLP. I'm embarrassed to mention it to him, but it's a problem because I can't draw or watch ponies with him in the room...which is all the time. What advice do you have for me?
Answer: I think you should be at an age now where you should be accepted for your inoffensive interests. He probably has his own interests that could be seen as embarrassing. You're living together for the foreseeable future, and so it's not healthy to keep something to yourself that you want to be a part of. It won't be much fun spending an entire year, or perhaps longer, hiding your interest and avoiding drawing and so on.
Don't make an effort to 'tell' him: that's making it more important than it needs to be. Just do what you usually do draw ponies and watch the episodes on Youtube or whatever. If he asks what you're watching, again, don't go overboard. Announcing that you're a 'brony' is unnecessary. Just say that it's a show

#104) Aren't bronies and furries the exact same thing? I think it's funny that so many bronies get offended when they're compared to furries. I don't see furries getting quite as offended about the comparison. Hah.
Answer: This is really the million-dollar question: are bronies and furries the same thing? The answer is, awkwardly, a little bit of both. Let's set the cards upon the table: there are all sorts of variables that come into the equation when defining exactly what a brony is. That's the first difficulty; if a brony is merely an adult watching the show, then you can't effectively argue that they're furries by definition just for doing that. If you did, then any parent watching the show with their child, or anyone who watched "Watership Down" or "The Animals of Farthing Wood" as children, or myriad other cartoons about animals, would be furries, which is ludicrous.
Just watching "Friendship is Magic" doesn't create a latent association with furries, despite what s

#97) I am an open brony with everyone, except my parents. I'd tell them, but my dad will not approve. He even disapproved and called me gay when I was really into "Phineas and Ferb". Imagine if he found out [about "Friendship is Magic"]! There's no way he would approve. But I want to buy merchandise, shirts, and other stuff. So what do you think I should do about telling my parents?
Answer: Your dad sounds like a royal prick. I don't know what his upbringing was like, but your sexuality isn't defined by watching a simple TV show. "Phineas and Ferb" might be geared towards an audience younger than yourself, but I'm not sure why it would be considered, in his eyes, to be 'gay'. I think he might be getting mixed up between watching something that's distinctly effeminate and watching something that targets kids in general. If anything, "Phineas and Ferb" is a show pitched at boys (although, naturally, it does have universal appeal) and so I can see why you'd be worried about

#67) Is clopping bad? I've done it before and I don't really understand why other bronies find it disgusting. Maybe it's just me. >.<
Answer: With the amount of clopping questions I receive with this column, it's hardly a wonder why a lot of people think that bronies are sexual deviants. Now, in terms of your question itself, the fact that you don't see why other people might find it disgusting is worrying, because you're admitting to not being able to contemplate why people would think it odd to masturbate to cartoon animals.
To be honest, to apply a label of 'bad' on clopping is a big generalisation, as it all comes down to opinion. It is my opinion that, while masturbating to ponies in itself isn't a problem, the content itself is bad, insofar as that shit seems to be everywhere. What's worse than being into it, though, is being proud of it. It's one thing to masturbate to ponies if that's what turns you on, there's no point in holding back on it just because

#82) How long do you think "Friendship is Magic" will last for? What is a good amount of seasons? Honestly, I want it to go on until at least Season 8.
Answer: Season 8 is a stretch. This is really a two-part question. The first part is about how long I realistically think that the show will last, based on speculation and circumstantial evidence. The second is about how long I personally believe the show should last, which is a different matter altogether.
To engage with the first part, we know that the show at least has in front of it another 13 episodes. After that, more might be made, or the show may maintain its success based on repeats. I can't predict when the show will end exactly, but it's pretty much a given that when Hasbro update the toy-line again, the show will be replaced. It's impossible to talk about "Friendship is Magic" without discussing it directly in parallel to the toys, as they both run off of each other and help to sustain one another. There

#73) My best bro and I have been bronies for a while now. I would never bring up being a brony on purpose to anyone who didn't know. But now we're doing a project in Literature class, and my friend is doing his on how he became a brony. I don't think it's a good idea. In fact, I find it embarrassing. What should I do?
Answer: This is something that seems to happen reasonably often people become big fans of "Friendship is Magic", and then fancy teaching the world to sing by shedding light on it in a class. And while you could argue that older individuals liking the show is an interesting point of observation, it's not particularly academic (not in terms of literature, at least) and so a presentation on it doesn't seem appropriate in general for that type of class.
It might be because I'm in the UK, but I know for a fact that if I presented on MLP in one of my university seminars I wouldn't be taken seriously by the teacher or the students. We tend to do

#37) I've heard tales of Season 3 being the last season. Is there any truth to this?
Answer: I don't work on the show, and so I can only reply with speculation and a little bit of evidence. A lot of people think that Season 3 will be the last season of "Friendship is Magic"; when the '13-episodes-only' revelation popped up as well, even more people began to see the end of the show as nigh. However, a shorter season doesn't necessarily mean the end of the show; there are many reasons for why the third season will be 13 episodes. I'm not going to get into detail on the whole 'syndication' thing, because you see so many bronies throwing it around based on hearsay without really knowing what it means.
Suffice to say that the show seems to be doing well for DHX Media, Discovery Communications and Hasbro the three big parties associated with it. They know about the popularity of the show, and so if they do choose to end the show at Season 3, it's fair to assume t

#31) As well as being a brony, I'm a furry. I find that some bronies alienate me because of that, and many bronies become offended when people assume that they're furries. What the hell? Shouldn't they know what it's like to be out of the mainstream? Is it bad to be a furry? Why can't I be both a furry and a brony?
Answer: The furry fandom has a lot of negative connotations surrounding it. The stereotype of a furry to a non-furry is someone who is attracted to animal-people, which a lot of people are uncomfortable with. When ponies became popular, a lot of people started saying that pony-fans are furries, while many pony-fans became vocal about not being part of the furry fandom just because they like ponies.
Personally, I find this to be exactly why applying abstract labels to things can be damaging. Not everyone wants to be part of a fandom based on their interests; some are fine to be remain without labels and titles, and instead prefer to just appreciate various inter

On the night of the concert I put on my black lace-up boots with high heels. Underneath them were ripped red fishnets.

I felt a little depressed then, so I slit one of my hooves. I read twenty-four depressing books while I waited for it to stop bleeding and I listened to some GC. I put on TONS of black eyeliner.

Breeze turned to face the source of the familiar female voice, looking up as Ditzy Doo descended and (for once) landed successfully.
"I just got back from a job," Ditzy panted. "Are we done for the day?"
"Yep," Breeze replied. "Candyfloss just announced it was closing time. We're done until Monday."
"Alright, I guess I'll head home then," Ditzy said.
"Which way are you headed?" The male pegasus asked. "Towards Cloudsdale?"
"Well in that general direction," Ditzy replied.
"Cool. We'll fly together."
The two pegasi took to the a

Fluttershy sighed, glancing at the now damaged wooden birdhouse that had tumbled to the cottage floor. "Um, Rainbow Dash?" she asked quietly. "Do you think you could be just a teensy bit more careful?"
"Yeah, sorry," said Rainbow Dash absentmindedly as she continued to dart quickly around the interior of Fluttershy's home. "Now, where is your other suitcase?"
"In the closet," Fluttershy said. She winced as Rainbow shot like a rocket into the hallway to retrieve it, but fortunately, nothing broke this time as the excited mare whizzed by.
"Rainbow Dash," Fluttershy began hesitantly. "I'm sorry, but, why are you so, you know excited about this? I mean, you're not even coming with me."
Rainbow poked her head out from the closet. "I know that!" she insisted. "I'm just excited to think that you're going. Las Pegasus is awesome, Fluttershy! It's a lot like Cloudsda

"Well, yeah," Watt said. "But I really did get abducted by spaceponies one time! It's just, instead of spiriting me away to their ship and performing horrific experiments, we just went out and got pizza and saw a movie. But c'mon, what kind of freaky science fiction story can I make out of that?"
Cloudcover had no response, so instead he changed the subject.
"Oh look Watt, we're here."
The sun was already ducking behind the horizon as the two stallions once again trotted up to the door of Equestria Speedy Shipping Services. A note was tacked to the outside.

The tiny unicorn squealed with delight as she gazed upon her surprise party. The backyard of the little cottage had been transformed into a veritable filly's wonderland. Several tables were laid out, covered in festive tablecloths and adorned with balloons. A mountain of colorfully wrapped gifts was piled in on one of them, and the rest were laden with large amounts of sweets. There was even a huge custom birthday cake, a real one, professionally prepared at Sugarcube Corner, instead of the muffin topped with a candle Dinky was used to receiving on her birthday.
Many of the fillies and colts from Dinky's class at school stood in the yard as well. Dinky immediately recognized the trio who called themselves the Cutie Mark Crusaders, as well as Pipsqueak, the new colt who had moved from Trottingham a few months earlier. Twist, the geeky but friendly filly who sat next to Dinky in class,

"Alright, Twist, let's go over it one more time. I know we can figure out what's going on."
Twist sighed and flipped back to the first page of the notebook yet again. "Dinky, are you sure we're not just on a wild goose chase?"
"Yes, I'm sure!" Dinky replied, pounding her front hooves for emphasis. "My mom's hiding something; that much is obvious. You and I need to find out what it is."
Twist rubbed her chin with a hoof for a moment as she thought. "You know, Dinky, usually parents have a good reason for doing what they do. Even if you're right, and your mom really is keeping something from you, maybe it's for the best that it stays that way. Did you consider that?"
Dinky's gaze fell. "I I did think that," she said softly. "That's why I've been feigning ignorance, even though it'
Shipping and Handling Chap. 9A warm, cheerful summer morning always succeeded in lifting the spirits of the residents of Ponyville, and this morning was no different.

It seemed there wasn't anypony for miles who was anything less than perfectly content.Shipping and Handling Chap. 9 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Anypony, that is, save for a certain grey pegasus, who was slowly being consumed by her own anxiety.
Ditzy trudged silently toward the front doors of Equestria Speedy Shipping Services. She opted not to fly for once; her distracted state of mind combined with her already poor vision had led her to several aerial accidents this morning alone, leading to a few hundred bits of property damage, and a splitting headache for the pegasus.
Ditzy couldn't understand what was holding her back anymore; a whole month had passed since Breeze had visited for dinner, yet the mare still hadn't told Dinky the truth about her job.

She would have immediately taken the opportunity to pass the whole incident off as a dream, had she not looked up to see Autumn Breeze standing over her.Shipping and Handling Chap. 2 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Hi." Said Breeze bluntly. "You passed out, so I put you on the couch. I'll give you a second to collect yourself, in case coming to grips with your situation makes you faint again."
He chuckled a bit, but Ditzy hardly heard him; her head was positively swimming with thoughts as everything Dr. Candyfloss had said and done began to make sense. Dr. Candyfloss was glad to hear I wasn't separated from my husband... she thought, ...because that would mean that there had been poor choices of romantic partner made. He wouldn't hire a matchmaker that had failed to match herself up!

Shipping and Handling Chap. 10The next three or four months were some of the happiest times Ditzy had had in years. With the cat finally out of the bag about her job, the mare found herself able to be honest with her daughter more fully than she had since beginning her employment there. Breeze was promptly invited to dinner once again, and this time, the three ponies were able to have a proper conversation, in which the two adult ponies discussed some of their funniest and most memorable moments in the business. Dinky had laughed herself almost to tears by the time Ditzy finished her story about her visit to Pinkie Pie's imaginary world.Shipping and Handling Chap. 10 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Ditzy still often found herself wondering about Glow's strangely sound logic that countered Candyfloss's theory of shipping. But the generally positive nature of her home life, combined with continued support from her friends at work and her still phenomenal success rates at her assignments left her with little reason to dwell on it.

"Well, I have good news and I have bad news," began a white-coated unicorn doctor as he strode into the room.
Well, speak of Discord . . .
Octavia paused in her quiet and mostly one-sided conversation with Vinyl, a cold knot of worry forming in her stomach. She stood and moved to Vinyl's side in order to lay a supporting hoof on the mare's shoulder. Through that contact she could feel the tension that belied Vinyl's apparent lack of concern.
"Okay doctor, let's hear it," Octavia said with a calmness meant entirely for Vinyl's benefit. Vinyl simply nodded agreement, throat still burned and parched.
"Good news first; Vinyl's burns are only second-degree. That makes them painful but they will heal well without leaving obvious scars or burn tissue and your coat will grow back over them."

Octavia's head shook violently, trying to dislodge the endless refrain of her doubt and indecision. The harsh movement put further dents in the soft material of her pillow, robbing it of what little comfort it offered the cellist. She resisted the urge to twist and turn; it wouldn't help her sleep any more than closing her eyes would.
The shadows of her darkened bedroom stifled her; the gentle breeze floating through an open window did nothing to ease the sweat forming along her coat heedless of how many sheets she flung to the floor. The darkness behind closed eyelids heralded only haunting and melancholic visions that made her fear any choice she might make.
Do I stay? An empty stage, a vacant spotlight, an unattended cello.
Do I go? Herself, alone. Vinyl long gone, unwilling to stay with such a selfish mare.

Its eerie light cast no illumination; smoke rolled everywhere, obscuring and thick. It forced its way into her lungs and made her cough helplessly. She stood frozen in the doorway to the back storerooms, eyes wide with mounting terror that stalled her thoughts.Accidental Harmony: Chapter 9 in Romance More Like This
A sudden acrid smell invaded her nostrils; part of her coat along her flank was afire. Panicking, she beat at it with a hoof. The small fire died quickly under her ferocious assault. The movement seemed to free her from the first wave of shock.
I can't get out this way. Gotta try the back, the emergency exit.
Turning her back on the fiery scene before her she whisked back the way she came, galloping down a hallway filled with closed doors. Heart thudding painfully in her chest, fear driving her steps, she struggled to see through the roiling clouds of smoke. At the end was salvation: the solid me
Accidental Harmony: Chapter 13The apartment door flew open with sudden force, crashing against the unsuspecting wall. Octavia stumbled through the doorway, weighed down with bulging saddlebags that threatened to drag her to the floor. She quickly made her way through the small living room into the connected kitchen, gratefully slinging the heavy bags from her back to thump onto the floor. "Vinyl! I'm back from the grocery store. Come give me a hoof putting this away," she called.Accidental Harmony: Chapter 13 in Romance More Like This
Rummaging through the bags she pulled out various culinary odds and ends, efficiently finding their proper place in cupboards and refrigerator. A bundle of carrots and a gallon of milk were ultimately taken from the first sack, leaving it empty. "Honestly, is it too much to ask for some help with this?" she yelled irritably. Hearing no answer, she snorted and opened the second bag.
Boxes of cereal and toaster pastries filled the cupboard, neatly arranged and organized until the first time Vinyl got into it. A loaf of bread found its way in

"Octavia Philharmonica," the beige stallion interrupted flatly, eying the mare across the wooden expanse of his desk. "Currently known through all of Canterlot as the pony who aided and abetted the ruination of the Grand Galloping Gala by participating in the rendition of, of all things, the 'pony pokey'."
"But that wasn't my fault," Octavia objected, her lilting and cultured voice overshadowed by an element of pleading. 'I was just doing my job, playing ponies' requests. I can't possibly be blamed."
The stallion sighed, massaging the furrow between his brows with a hoof. "Miss Philharmonica, it is true you cannot be blamed in any litigious sense. However, you know these upper-class Canterlot types. I'm afraid you are very much persona non grata amongst the upper class that forms your usual
Accidental Harmony: Chapter 4Midday brightness suffused the room as Octavia stirred, slowly. Cursing under her breath at the sheets that wrapped around her limbs like treasonous vines, the grey mare finally won free of her mattress. Wincing at the late hour of her rising she hurried into the bathroom, intent on making herself presentable for her first day on the job.Accidental Harmony: Chapter 4 in Romance More Like This
Steam filled the room as she stepped out of the shower, grey coat and black mane dripping wet. The quick application of a towel solved that issue. Afterwards she was left regarding herself in the mirror. She eyed her styled jet mane, flowing down her back as well as her signature pink bow tie on its white collar. Her appearance bespoke sobriety and respectability. She would stand out like a unicorn amongst earth ponies at the club tonight. She sighed in resignation; even if she wanted to try and alter her look to 'blend in', she had no idea where to start.
I only hope I'm equal to this. I knew I was out of my depth before, but what if I really mess
Accidental Harmony: Chapter 2The two mares eased themselves into their seats, facing each other across a small circular table. The dim overhead lights provided some relief from the yawning darkness of the expansive interior of the club. They faced each other in a moment of awkward silence before the DJ spoke up, her tone oddly inviting. "So, wanna tell me about it?" she began.Accidental Harmony: Chapter 2 in Romance More Like This
Octavia sighed deeply before responding, "It's a long story. But the gist of it is that my reputation is in ruins right now and no one will hire me.

Their presence was poignant and somehow deeply flawed.Accidental Harmony: Chapter 11 in Romance More Like This
Fluttering open, her eyes revealed a thin slice of lavender as they quickly scanned the notes on the pages before her.
Why can't I play this properly? It's not that difficult; a foal could handle this without difficulty.
Eyes once more closed, her bow set back into motion; it glided across the strings with the grace and poise she was known for. Regardless, the notes always fell flat to her ears; they were insipid, uninspired. She repeated the same sequence of notes countless times, each iteration as lifeless as the last. She struggled to meld into her music, to lend it the passion of her soul; in desperation she summoned every powerful memory she had to try and wrest some emot

A few moments of walking found cellist and DJ comfortably ensconced at a candle-lit table on the outdoor patio of one such locale.Accidental Harmony: Chapter 3 in Romance More Like This
The twinkling of stars provided effervescent background to the mares' silent contemplations. Octavia focused on the admittedly simple fare on offer with a fervor usually reserved for religious zealots. Concealed behind her unrevealing purple shades, Vinyl regarded her companion. She was a mystery and she intrigued the flawless white unicorn. Her elegant and slightly formal (and, Vinyl had to admit, very cute) bowtie and cultured accent, coupled with her refined demeanor and profession as a classical musician, marked her as, if not one of Canterlot's elites, then at lea

"Vinyl, that is the worst idea I have ever heard," Octavia said, flipping idly through the magazine Vinyl had given to her.Accidental Harmony: Chapter 12 in Romance More Like This
"What are you talking about? It's for ten thousand bits; with that much money we could start rebuilding Club P0n-3," Vinyl replied, reaching out with a hoof to jab at the pages for emphasis.

There wasn't much in common between the impoverished lower-class of planet Earth, and the crew of an Ancient starship on the other side of the universe. The only thing these two groups had was this: They both had no idea where their next meal would come from.
Tight rationing had already begun on the Destiny, which meant the crew was irritable and hungry, and it was times like these that the ship's military personnel kept busy.
Scott and Greer ran down the corridor, straight to the mess hall, where the sounds of yelling and clattering dishware originated.
They quickly tried to separate Morrison and Becker.
"HEY!" Scott yelled. He forced the two crew members apart, and just as Morrison was about to turn on the lieutenant, Greer reacted quickly, pulling out his service pistol, and aiming right at the doctor's head.

Greer slowly lowered his gun.

The Destiny did a loop upwards and back, speeding away from the enemy ships.
A few seconds later, Chloe spoke, "They're gaining rapidly, we might have bought a few minutes at most."
"That might be enough," Scott pointed out. "I mean, they don't want to destroy the Destiny, so by the time they try to board us, Brody's team should be back and we can jump to FTL."
But the eternal pragmatist, Rush, objected. "They'll have to collapse the shields Lieutenant," he said. After all, the shields were needed to jump.

Like most young unicorns, Sweetie Belle did not know how to use magic. It wasn't a skill one was born with, in the strictest sense; so it had to be learned, and it wasn't an easy skill to learn. She did hear her parents talking about when she was really young and could levitate all her toys at once, but apparently, that was something she forgot how to do. So here she was, at Ponyville Park, hiding in some bushes, with an old magic book, trying to relearn a skill she had when she was an infant.
But at this moment, she wasn't practising her magic, instead, she was looking up at the young dragon that so rudely interrupted her.
"Need some help?" he asked.
Sweetie's ego was about to take over, telling him to get lost, that she could do it herself; but her self-esteem fought back, wanting to ask for any help he could provide; but the eventual victor was a third voice which simply said:

The rising amber sun shined through the windows of the Ponyville Library, and in one little corner of the main sitting room, one little dragon was reading through the titles on a book cart, shuffling the tomes around in an effort to make his job just a little bit easier.
"Birds of Central Equestria," he said, reading the title on one of the covers. "Davenport checked that out a week ago. Advanced Orchard Designs, that was Applejack's weekend project."
As he shuffled through the trolley, it wasn't long before he landed on a title that was pink and hardbound. "Romance for Foals," he said. Placing a claw on his head, he tried to remember who last checked it out, but nothing came. It had been a while since he saw this title, but he could always remember who checked out what book in the library no matter how long ago it was. As he began scratching his head in thought, he didn't notice a young purple unicorn trot up behind him.

Spike was clinging to her neck for dear life, as worry overtook the young unicorn.
Eventually, the two arrived near Sweet Apple Acres, and Twilight slowed to a crawl.
On both sides of the path, where there were once dozens of Apple Trees, now stood nothing but tall black pillars.
The fence that once ran along either side of the long dirt road was now nowhere to be seen, and the ground was covered in ashes.
Twilight was speechless. There were no words to say. No words she could say. As far as she could see, there wasn't a single survivor, the entire orchard was incinerated. Her best friend's business and livelihood was destroyed, overnight.

But typically, all this ended once the sun went down, and everypony settled in for a good night's sleep.
However Sugarcube Corner was not a store that settled down that easily.

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.

There was even a little orange pegasus dressed as an Eagle, a white hood with a hooked beak and a set of brown feathers over her body. With her, there was a little white unicorn dressed up as a rock-star and a little yellow earth pony dressed as a buffalo, red and white paint streaked over her face and a large feathered headdress atop her crown.

Twilight put her hoof to her chin as she thought, looking down at the flat piece of cardboard showing the image of a fairy (what looked like a tiny pegasus with a flowing blonde mane and crystal-clear gown). It was one of the many cards Twilight, as well as three-fourths of Ponyville, collected as a part of the "Creatures of the Everfree" card series-the latest collector's fad to hit Equestria.

Hilariously, based on how she looked out of the wallet, Rainbow Dash felt like she was the foe- her hero's ruby eyes piercing into her own like arrows in bows, primed to fire.
Overall, it was beyond awesome, much better t

"Consarn it Pinkie Pie. How do you manage to cause such a mess?" Applejack thought, cleaning off yet another glob of frosting with a paper towel before tossing it into a nearby garbage pail.
She looked around and sighed. The entire bedroom was a disaster. Baking utensils scattered all around the floor like pieces of debris after a hurricane. Globs of batter and frosting covered the walls, floor and ceiling. Glassware that once gave the pink mare's room an element of beauty were shattered, pieces of which littered the floor like shrapnel. It was too great of a mess to be handled by one pony, even if that one pony happened to be Pinkie Pie.
Frustrated with her lack of success cleaning solo, the pink mare ran outside to ask passing ponies for assistance. She wasn't having any luck until Applejack and Rainbow Dash walked by, giving their friend a small wave as they passed. Pinkie Pie took advantage of the opportunity and jumped in front of them, her breathing hea

The Rain-Bow Incident
All was quiet and calm in the town of Ponyville. The skies were sunny, blue and cloudless. Like the top shell of a robin's egg encased the small town. The park was bustling with life. Ponies of all species and backgrounds were walking, talking, playing, anything and everything that would be expected on a sunny afternoon.
All of a sudden, a pony's head, blue as the sky above it, poked up from within a bush with a pair of nervous, scarlet eyes that gave the area a quick scan. Just as quickly as it appeared, the head vanished back into the safety of the bush.
Rainbow Dash could feel herself shivering. There she was, in the middle of the park, several ponies walking around that would be able to see her in plain view had she stepped out of her designated hiding spot-inside a thick bush that was pushed up against an oak tree.

Shining stared up at the oak door that towered above him. It was a normal door, no different than a typical door one would find inside a house. But given the contents stored away behind it, it had an unusually grand feel to it, and Shining couldn't help but feel dwarfed in its shadow.
The old grandfather clock down the hall let out twelve loud booms.
It was noon. The high sun's rays shone through a nearby window and across Shining's stationary, white frame. It warmed his fur while he kept his blue eyes locked on the door.
His parents always said how the attic held an eclectic assortment of things, from old music records to hardcover books that hadn't been opened since his grandparents lived in the house a decade before.
Shining imagined his deceased grandfather, the stallion with the amputated hoof and a pair of wild, yet kind, eyes. Shining imagined his still-alive grandmother, the sweet mare that would always have a batch of cookies at her house for him and

Chapter 1: Putting Faith in the Pegasus
A collective groan echoed throughout the schoolhouse. Fillies and colts alike let their faces fall flat onto the hard surface of their desks. There was only one word that could create such frustration among school-aged fillies.
The equivalent of torture to most school-aged ponies, save for the creative few that took joy in such an art form. But Apple Bloom, like most of her young companions, was not one of these ponies. In fact, she possessed an even greater disdain for the art of poetry than others did. The ambiguity, the pretentious feel it had gave her when reading it. Of course, the elitist snobs that would read poetry and act like they were geniuses for getting one out of a possible thousand meanings out of it. Nothing about that form of writing appealed to her in the slightest.
She looked to her right t

Twilight vs. Oral Hygiene
The sun was high on the bright and cheerful day in Ponyville. Well, cheerful for most.
Twilight Sparkle stood inside the town's library, a very aggravated look on her face. Her hoof tapped against the ground in irritation, her eyes boring holes into a burly unicorn stallion that stood in front of her. He had a clipboard floating in front of his face as a levitating pen scribbled notes. A small emblem on his saddlebag read "Ponyville Plumbing Services".
"Right, so that's all of it." said the stallion, finishing what he was writing before floating the pen into his saddle-bag. But the scowl on Twilight's face remained.
"I still can't believe you had to take out every single one of my pipes." Twilight said.
The stallion shrugged, "What can I say Lady? This library may look good on the outside, but it's old and everything about it is either completely out of date or aging fast. From the floorboards," he ran his hoof along the wood floor, tracing a long crack

"Everypony, remain calm so as to allow our fair city to be efficiently defended!"
Even given its volume, Shining Armor's request fell on deaf ears. Unicorn citizenry either shivered in corners, or ran in all directions in an attempt to make themselves scarce from the chaos that was downtown Canterlot.
Meanwhile armored pegasi flew about, combating household objects which had become animate--brooms, mops, pantries, and even ovens which had learned to put their super-heating abilities to malicious use.
A squadron of fifty unicorns, led by Shining Armor and Princess Cadance, rushed to the scene of greatest commotion. While weary from preventing casualties for the past hour, they were still fueled by adrenaline granted through the will to prevent even more.
And at that scene, they found the source of the chaos--quite literally, in fact.
"Discord! It is you! I didn't believe it at first," said Shining Armor. He looked around. "Even when Celestia told me the legends of your

"...and that, Spike, is the official meaning of life," said Twilight Sparkle as they walked along one of Ponyville's roads.
"Whoa, Twilight," said Spike, his voice laced with awe. "Really?"
"Really really!" said Twilight, smiling with pride. "At least, as applied to bunnies. Ponies and dragons are a teensy bit more complicated, so our answers will take me a lot longer to come up with. Probably years!"
"Well, I'll help you find them however I can." Spike chuckled. "Though somehow, I don't think Angel will be all that pleased with your findings..."
"Oh, wow, good point. Well, maybe Fluttershy can talk him dow-" Twilight paused, thought about the possibility for a few seconds, then said, "You know what, you're right. Let's just not tell him. He seems to have fun with his life--if all of a sudden we tell him that he actually has no true free w

Twilight Sparkle hadn't run this fast since she was a filly.
She rounded the spiral stairs of Canterlot Castle, gasping and desperate, until she reached her library workshop. Her chest heaved and hurt from the nonstop running, but she pushed it aside to concentrate on the task at hand.
They'd called her mad. They'd said she was depraved. They'd said she was messing with powers beyond her reach.
Unfortunately, for once, it seemed that "they" were right.
Wasting no time, she willed several books off of the massive shelves. They opened and spun around her. Twilight's eyes were lightning, moving across several turning pages in mere seconds. Her mind moved almost as frantically.
It should have worked, it should should have worked, it should have worked! None of this should have happened! I checked everything! I dotted my Is, crossed all the Ts, carried all the ones, seriously what happened here-
"There she is!" she heard a voice cry out from the hallway.

Early one afternoon, two unicorns walked together along one of Ponyville's side roads.
"Thanks again for accompanying me, Twilight."
"No problem at all, Rarity. So, can you tell me now why we're headed to Applejack's? I thought she was supposed to be busy today."
"Field testing." Rarity gave a confident nod towards a familiar barn as they approached it.
"...still not following."
"A couple of weeks ago, Applejack was planning her annual family reunion, and said that she needed somepony to help cater. Since a certain one of us we know quite well owed all of us an apology at the time, we figured she'd be the best one to tap. Thus, I went about crafting a most... fitting outfit." The two stopped in front of the fence to Sweet Apple Acres. "Ahh, here we are. Once again, my brilliant sense of style in action!"

What was I thinking?
A star-adorned tiara plopped onto Twilight Sparkle's bed.
It all looked to so good in my head! The actual outfit even looked good! At least to me... but I'm no designer, am I?
Two oversized, star-plastered sets of earrings and bows followed.
And the whole time, I pushed her to make it. Constantly correcting her over the most minor of details, forcing her to abandon her design sensibilities, and being ungrateful about a dress that she had offered to make me for free!
That dress, cluttered with animal and constellation designs, joined her jewelry on the bed with a soft ploomf. Twilight looked at the ensemble, only now finally able to see it for the trainwreck it was.
Whew. Back to some semblance of sanity. But the damage is already done. It's my fault. I asked for this, and I got exactly what I wanted... at the expense of a good friend's image. Maybe even her career. I'm the absolute worst.

A white unicorn in royal robes and sparkling crown stood atop a snow-spotted peak. The blizzard responsible for it had been thwarted a full week prior--and hopefully, forever--but from her vantage point, its effects could still easily be seen across the horizon.
In its half-melted state, the snow highlighted the flora of the land below, causing several colors of the rainbow to shine under the moonlight.
Princess Platinum smiled. They almost hadn't done it. Heaven knew she hadn't contributed all that much to their cause.
At that moment, however, she at last heard the hoofsteps of one who had.
"Ahh, Clover the Clever," Platinum greeted the brown-robed violet unicorn who had just traversed the peak's leading trail. "Thank you for showing. I... did not wish to inconvenience you whilst you were napping."
Clover nodded with a light, airy smile. "I appreciate it. Still, I came as soon as I read your note. Is anything the matter?"
