But now that they had won, the sun's first rays were creeping over the horizon, and with them came a familiar voice. To her friends, it was strange, but to Twilight, it brought a smile to her face. She knew that voice well, and the pony it belonged to. As the sun rose, another light approached the window of the ruin. There was a blinding flash as the six mares covered there eyes. But when the light dimmed, they looked on in joy

Shining Armour, former Captain of the royal guard of Canterlot, and Prince of the Crystal Empire, had many things in his life that just got under his skin. But above all else, nothing bothered him like seeing someone he cared about look unhappy. And so it was that here, as he walked out on the great balcony of the Crystal Palace, overlooking the Empire, that his gaze fell upon his beloved wife, Princess Cadence. Having known her for so long, he could always tell when something was bothering her, and today was most certainly such a time.
Though, to be fair, anypony with eyes could have taken one look at her face and known that she was less than enthusiastic about something. So, taking a deep breath, Shining took a few steps forward, and it was not long before the sound of his approaching hoof-steps caught Cadence's attention, causing her to turn and face him. When her eyes met with those of her husband, she put on a smile for him, but Shining knew her well enough to know that this was n

This was not the first time she'd been present at such a monumental event though. Ever since she first arrived in the village of Ponyville, her life has been a plethora of strange and dangerous things. And like all of them, she and her friends had been made all the better for it. But now she had other things on her mind, hence why she was waiting here, in the grand entrance hall of the Crystal Palace it

After everypony had placed their hopes on her. It was her duty to do this. She couldn't allow anypony to see her like this.Corruption in Short Stories More Like This
Twilight Sparkle struggled to walk forward. Her legs were wobbling with every step she took. The darkness didn't help. Ever since she and Spike had failed to find the crystal heart, a shadow had consumed the entire interior of the castle. When that happened, she and Spike had been separated. She had no idea if he was ten feet away, twenty, or even if they were in the same room at this point. Every attempt to call out to him had been met with silence. She worried for him, as any friend would. But that was just one of many serious worries she had right now.
A thud. She nursed her side as she felt around and realised she'd walked into a wall. She silently cursed her present condi
A mother's regretIt was as silent as the grave right now. Twilight sat there, at the other end of the table from Celestia, staring at her beloved mentor with her mouth hanging open. It felt like an eternity since Celestia had spoken, but no amount of passed time could make what she'd said any easier to swallow. It wasn't true, Twilight told herself. This was some sort of joke. There was no way that what Celestia had said could possibly be real. Maybe this was a dream, or even a nightmare.A mother's regret in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
But deep down, she knew that it wasn't. No matter how much she might wish it to be untrue, she had to face reality, however terrible that reality might have become for her. Not wanting to spend the rest of the day with her mouth hanging open, Twilight finally broke the silence.
The words had been hard to get out, almost as though her mouth refused to register them. Celestia meanwhile, merely sat on the other side of the table and quietly nodded. She said nothing, merely waited for Twi
NightmaresSomething was wrong. Twilight knew that. All there was around her was darkness, and she could not see anything anywhere around her. She had no idea how she got to this place. The last thing she remembered was lying down on her hospital bed, still tired from her fight with the dragon. The next thing she knew was that she was in this strange place. The darkness was bad enough, but on top of that, it was cold. She was shivering as though it was the middle of winter right now.Nightmares in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Hello? Is anyone out there?" She called out.
Nothing. No sound. No voice. No sign of any life. Against her better judgement, she tried to walk forward despite not being able to see anything. She started with a slow walk, before eventually starting to run. No matter how far forward she moved, she could not make contact with any kind of solid object.
Still nothing. What was this place, she asked herself. Was this a dream? That seemed the most logical explanation, given what happened immediately before coming
Equestria Girls - Unexpected VisitOf all the places in Equestria where she could be spending regular time, this was not one she'd ever expected to find herself. Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Equestria, was standing in what, to most, would be little more than a ruin. It was the old capital of Equestria. A castle that once housed the two Princesses, Celestia and Luna, before the latter's transformation into Nightmare Moon. It was here, almost four years ago, that Twilight and her friends had first truly come together to become the bearers of the elements of harmony. This castle, much like the day in which she first saw it, were things that had changed her forever.Equestria Girls - Unexpected Visit in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
But right now, she had other things on her mind. Her friend, Rarity, had recently got it into her head to do some restoration work on this old place ever since their first foray into it after the incident of Discord's vines. Her friend's plan had interested all of them however, and soon they'd all been putting regular days together to try and get this place bac
The Violation of SombraEven though the request had been heard as plain as day, she still could not believe it. She was just a regular pony, but was now being asked to meet with one of the most important people in their nation. Amber Waves, a mare of the newly-returned race of Crystal Ponies, had, like the rest of her kind, only just returned to the world after a period of one thousand years. In ancient times, she and her kin had endured under the brutal reign of Sombra, a unicorn tyrant who had enslaved them all and claimed the Empire as his own. Although defeated, he'd cast a dark spell on them all, casting them adrift in time, having only now returned.The Violation of Sombra in General Fiction More Like This
Remembering that terrible times caused a grimace on Amber's face. Nopony wanted to remember those dark days, her least of all. Instead, she tried focusing on happier thoughts, mostly the fact that she had been summoned by none other than Cadence herself, the newly-appointed Princess of the Empire. Along with her husband, a group of ponies from Southern Eques
Equestria Girls - New DawnThe sun's rays began to filter through the window and the curtain, giving the room a warm glow. Although the windows were shut tight, she could faintly hear the sound of chirping birds, which were what woke her up. Twilight's eyes slowly opened, and she allowed herself a moment to get used to the rising light levels. She'd had a very good sleep, and was not eager to leave it just yet. But, as the moments passed, a realisation dawned on her, and she suddenly noticed an orange foreleg gently draped over her.Equestria Girls - New Dawn in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She turned her head, and a warm smile crept onto her face. There, sleeping soundly, was her beloved colt-friend, Flash Sentry. He was lying perfectly still, a warm smile upon his face, one which led Twilight to gain her own smile. Last night had been unlike anything she'd experienced before, and it had all been with a stallion she loved. Thinking fondly on the previous night, she slowly moved forward, gently planting a kiss on his lips. There was a low, almost purring sound, coming f
When chaos meets darknessEver since she'd entered the fray, it had been a complete melee. Luna had not had to do any real fighting for many centuries, and it showed. Her movements were more sluggish than they had been in her youth and she was unaccustomed to having so much happen around her at once. Changelings would strike at her and attempt to knock her out of the sky in droves, knowing that if she fell, it would deal a serious blow to the morale of the ponies forces.When chaos meets darkness in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
But in spite of that, Luna was no pushover. As an alicorn, she was an incredibly skilled flier, weaving past the many attacks by her changeling foes and bucking them in mid-air attacks. And if that wasn't bad enough for the changelings, there was also Luna's considerable talent in the field of magic. Her blasts from her horn had sent dozens of the beasts reeling and falling out of the sky. It was clear to all why Celestia had sent her up here, for Canterlot would easily have been lost by now if it hadn't been for Luna's involvement.
