Nightmare Rarity - Alternate sceneSomething was terribly wrong here. Even at his young age, Spike could tell that something bad was going on. It had not been long since he set foot upon the surface of the moon, hoping to try and help Twilight and the others, and he'd still managed to get himself into trouble. The events of the past few days had been, to say the least, rather difficult for him and everypony else. The others had come here to rescue one of their own. But not just anypony, but one very special to Spike himself.
Rarity, the love of his life. The beautiful unicorn mare whom he'd harboured a crush on ever since he first came to Ponyville. But she had been taken by a force none could have foreseen. A terrible, dark power that had once claimed the life of another important pony. Princess Luna. That darkness had transformed her into the monster known as Nightmare Moon, and whose conflict with Celestia had forced the latter to imprison her beloved sister here in the moon for a thousand years.
Spike hoped very muc
Friendship is magic - Alternate endingShe almost couldn't believe her eyes. After what seemed like a night that would never end, the sun was finally rising. Twilight stood in the middle of the ruined castle, surrounded by the friends she'd made. Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rarity and Pinkie Pie. All of them had, much to her surprise, become incredibly important to her, and together, they'd achieved a great victory. Not only had they discovered the long-lost elements of harmony, but in doing so, they had also vanquished the mare who had threatened the land with eternal night. Nightmare Moon.Friendship is magic - Alternate ending in Short Stories More Like This
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

Looking around she could tell that this place had been hardly touched in all the years that it had stood. At least until the events of the last few days.Too many Pinkie Pies - Alternate ending in Short Stories More Like This
Twilight Sparkle sat at the edge of what was known as the mirror pond. An ancient and, until recently, fairy tale place that dwelt within the Everfree Forest. She herself had heard of the tales, though only in passing as a child. It was not something she'd ever given much thought to. But, her friend, Pinkie Pie, had come here herself and, through the magic of the pond, made many copies of herself. She had done it in an effort to make sure that she was able to spend time with all of her friends.
The purple unicorn could not help but chuckle to herself. As always, she was just being Pinkie Pie. Only the energetic earth pony could come into a magical place like this and casually cast a spell on herself for the simple purpose o
Hearts and Hooves Day - Missing SceneThe sun was shining brightly today. The sky was a clear blue and everywhere you went in the parks of Canterlot, ponies were smiling and laughing.Hearts and Hooves Day - Missing Scene in Short Stories More Like This
But then, they had good reason to be happy. For this was hearts and Hooves day. And on this day, like it was every year, love was in the air. Mares and stallions alike spent the day with their "very special someponies". You could not go two steps forward without laying your eyes on some happy couple enjoying each others company.
But sitting on a grassy hill in the middle of the park, was one pony who did not have a smile upon his face. A white stallion with a blue mane, wearing a rather ornate red uniform of a captain, who sat there on the top of the hill, and was experiencing worry like never before.
Over the course of his time as a member of the royal guard, he had been against many things that might cause other ponies to quake with fear. He had faced down raiding parties of dogs without hesitation. He's fended off hydras and manticores. He

After all, it was not every day that she got to witness such an event.MMMystery on the Friendship Express-Missing Scene in Short Stories More Like This
Princess Mi'Amore Cadenza, or Cadence as she preferred to be called, was watching the gathering crowd with great anticipation. Like many of the annual Canterlot events, ponies from all over Equestria would gather to this city. And although her work often took other all over the principality to meet such ponies, seeing them all gather together in one place was always a rare treat.
This day was the annual dessert contest and many had pulled out all the stops this year. Treats and cakes of all shapes and sizes lined the gardens, waiting for the judges to come by and pass their verdict. She had to admit, it was an appealing sight.
Under normal circumstances she would have loved for Shining to be here today so they could both enjoy it. Unfortunately for the both of them he'd bee
Wonderbolt Academy - Alternate endingAs she approached the blue door, she hesitated. Ever since Rainbow's denouncing of Lightning Dust, which occurred in front of not only her friends, but her entire squad of recruits, this was something she knew she had to do. But that didn't mean she had to like it. She'd been practically trembling on the approach to Spitfire's office. What she planned to do here, and what consequences that might emerge from it, were things she did not care to think about. But she also knew that if she didn't do this, if she simply kept quiet and went along with what had been going on, she'd never forgive herself for it.Wonderbolt Academy - Alternate ending in Short Stories More Like This
She lifted her hoof and pushed the door open. Once open, Rainbow saw within the office. Spitfire was there, continuing to do what she'd been doing the last time Rainbow had visited her, signing autographs. It was understandable of course. Being as famous a flier as she was, Spitfire probably had to spend half her day doing this. Though it was clear from the look on her face that she did
Magical mystery cure - Alternate endingThey were happy. Happier than they'd been all day. The six mares embraced each other in the middle of the street, not wanting to let go of each other. Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and pinkie Pie. Six friends who had grown so close to each other, had now saved each other from a very miserable end. They had been through a very unpleasant ordeal recently as their cutie marks, the symbols of their roles and destinies, had been changed. But, thanks to Twilight and the bonds they'd forged with each other, they had undone that change and were back to normal.Magical mystery cure - Alternate ending in Short Stories More Like This
Twilight, right in the middle of the group hug, gave a long sigh of relief. She more than any of them had bared her share of pain throughout this time, mostly from the guilt she felt over her part in the event. For you see, it was her spell that had caused all this. A spell sent to her by her mentor, Princess Celestia, to try and solve as a part of her studies. Being the dutiful student she was, she tried
Magical mystery cure - A slow recoveryIt was a beautiful day in the northern reaches of Equestria. The rolling hills and grassy plains were, under the bright yellow sun, truly a sight to behold. Going straight through the middle of this lovely countryside was a single long train track, and upon it, a brightly coloured train. It was moving along at a good pace and heading towards a place that, until a year ago, was nothing more than a frozen wasteland. Within the train were a multitude of ponies, earth, pegasi and unicorn alike, from many different villages and towns to the south, all travelling together towards the northern Crystal Empire.Magical mystery cure - A slow recovery in Short Stories More Like This
But among them was a particularly special group of ponies, and one young dragon. In a car towards the back of the train, a close collection of friends were all sitting in their seats, admiring the view. Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Applejack and Spike were all doing their best to enjoy the train ride, which was usually something they looked forward to. But not today. Bec
Griffon the brush off - Alternate endingThe entire mood of the party had changed almost immediately. A few moments ago, the ponies attending this get-together were all happy and enjoying themselves. Now, the whole things seemed to have turned into a disaster. And all because of an outburst caused by the guest of honour for the party.Griffon the brush off - Alternate ending in Short Stories More Like This
Gilda the griffon, and old friend of Rainbow Dash, had been invited here to attend this party in her honour, thrown by Pinkie Pie. Although Pinkie was famous around Ponyville for parties of all sorts, the fact that she was willing to throw one for Gilda had come as a surprise for many, considering that they hadn't seemed to be on friendly terms during the latter's short time here. But as bad as things were between them, they seemed even worse now. For Gilda had been the victim of a number of practical jokes that had occurred throughout the evening. And even though the other ponies attending had laughed at the spectacle, Gilda did not.
The latest prank, which involved the griffon sliding into the
A Canterlot Wedding - Missing ScenesThe ponies were all hard at work. Pegasi went about repairing roofs and ceiling ornaments, unicorns spent their time seeing to the restoration of the more complicated features of the palace, and all others busied themselves with the myriad other tasks that needed to be done to get everything back in top condition.A Canterlot Wedding - Missing Scenes in Short Stories More Like This
The recent attack brought about by the unexpected and hitherto unknown changelings and their Queen, Chrysalis, had left much of the city damaged. By some miracle there had been no casualties, only a few injuries here and there. Of course it made sense. The changelings were, after all, using the ponies as a food source. It made no sense that they'd want them harmed.
Ponies all about the capital were grateful that the attack had left only structural damage. Damage which was easily rectified. But for one lone unicorns, the damage was far deeper.
Walking along the red carpet of the main hall of the Canterlot royal palace, Captain Shining Armour was looking uncharacteristically fo
Keep calm and flutter on - Alternate endingOnce the six of them arrived at Sweet Apple Acres, it turned out that things were a lot worse than they'd originally thought it would be. There had been bad floods before, but this was on a whole other level. The water was so high now that Applejack's family had to get around by way of makeshift boats they'd made out of large wooden buckets. They were all doing what they could, but it was clear that this situation wasn't going to get better anytime soon. A sentiment that Applejack herself now voiced.Keep calm and flutter on - Alternate ending in Short Stories More Like This
"I've never seen the floodin this bad. They've built dams around here before, but never like this. What's goin on?" She asked.
The five ponies, Twilight, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Rainbow Dash, all stood on a nearby hill, looking down at the devastation the floods were causing. Further down the land, where the beavers had built their unusually extensive dams, Fluttershy, still bearing her elements, was hovering above the nearest dam and was trying to speak to one of the beavers.

Rain poured mercilessly in the deafening wind while three young foals slept inside the small chicken coop. The storm's might was ferocious, its malice unforgiving as even the rising sun itself seemed to hide out of fear of the great power of nature and shone only scarcely through the dismal blanket of the intimidating clouds. The heavy gales rattled the miniature house violently while the great boom of thunder shook the sleeping children to the bone. Inside their rickety shelter, Orion and Bucky slept side-by-side, huddled together to keep warm, their crusader capes shielding them from the cold. Their minds were blank, deep within the sleep they needed so badly. Time travel seemed to affect the very life force of all three of the Crusaders as they each found themselves too exhausted to even notice the rampage of the storm. None of them slept in peace but all remained unconscious. Out

Berry Pie woke up in a panic and jumped to his feet. Cold sweat and rain ran down his body with light drips onto the wooden floor. Looking down at his twin sister sleeping safe and sound beside him, he relaxed his tense shoulders and breathed a sigh of relief. He had almost forgotten where they were until his mind fully adjusted to consciousness again. There were in the Apple farm treehouse.
How they had made it here, he couldn't remember, but at this point he didn't care as his sky-blue eyes scanned his slowly darkening surroundings. The room was full of crayon-drawn posters in a stack, a picture frame, and various other things. This did not look like the setup Berry knew as a colt or saw recently, reminding him what Bismarck said about how they had traveled back in time.
If there was any proof, the pictures and drawings of and by Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle, and Apple Bloom in the room confirmed it. He approach

Deep inside the Everfree Forest, far away from all civilization, the thundering echoes of magic roared over the ambient chirps of the hidden wildlife surrounding Andromeda and silenced their calls. Sweat poured down her forehead in icy streams as she breathed heavily. Her eyes were bloodshot and her legs felt weak underneath her exhausted body. Every ounce of her might was being channeled into her spell, but it continued to defeat her again and again until the resolve to use magic began to shatter inside of her.
“No, no, no!” she said aloud, shaking her head. “It has to work! It just has to!”
Dirt and moss covered her hooves as she shifted them into a braced position. Slowly, her horn began to glow from a bright yellow to a blinding white. A massive gust of wind blew everything around her like a small hurricane while sparks of blue electricity shot from her horn as usual. E

Chapter 5: A Day at the Spa
Lowering herself slowly into the steaming hot tub, Fluttershy let out a long, content sigh while she sank into complete relaxation. Once she had adjusted to the rapid temperature change, she could feel every muscle in her body loosen while she closed her eyes and laid her head back. She needed a day where she could just unwind without having to worry about picking up the kids from school or anything else, and the spa was just what the doctor ordered.
“This feels more amazing every time I come here,” she told Rarity, who sat across from her. “I didn’t even realize I was this tense.”
“You never can,” Rarity replied. “It’s just the stresses of life, I suppose. Sometimes you get so busy in the chaos of the day that you forget how much pressure you’re building up inside. That’s what the spa is for!”
Fluttershy could easily agree on that. Even though it was hard to believe that they had

Radiance's sapphire eyes bagged from lack of sleep as the sun's orange rays shone through the windows and cracks of the Apple family barn. Rest had eluded her all night thanks to the mix of pain from her broken leg and the vivid activity in her spinning mind. As she watched Bismarck's orange chest rise and sink slightly with quiet breaths, she continued to wonder to herself if this was all just a bad dream. So much had been happening to her that she felt like she couldn't even begin to cope. Within a day, she had gone back in time, broken her leg, gotten caught in a violent storm, possibly lost two of her best friends to that storm, and now the one who wouldn't turn back to find them was sleeping across from her. Pure anger burned inside her at the thought of Bismarck leaving Berry and Cherry to die. Everything in her wished she could stop him.

Flora continued to fly high above Ponyville, using the white pillowy clouds as cover from the curious eyes below. For two hours she had searched high and low for the foals, in and outside of the small town, but still she found no sign of them. Desperation began to settle upon her like a cold frost when she realized that her only sister could be lost, or worse, hurt from the storm and the fear of that possibility forced her to move quicker and look harder.
“Come on, Peach,” she whispered as she landed on the soft ground. “Where are you?”
Flora’s turquoise eyes continued to scour her surroundings for the tenth time, but the location of the kids eluded her. Her subconscious and heart rattled with anxiety. Her legs shook in panic until her body finally collapsed onto the cloud she stood on, shuddering lightly as she lay. Buried beneath her forearms, Flora’s head

Zecora's eyes snapped awake and her body jerked from the sound of twigs snapping outside of her house, nearly making her fall out of bed. Twilight and her friends visited often but she was not expecting visitors at sunrise. Whatever was outside was either trying to break in or was in need of help. Getting up, the zebra made her way to the door slowly, ready for any intruder who may cross her path. Anything could be in the Everfree Forest and she was too smart to take chances. Listening carefully, she could hear voices outside.
"Yes, Flora, I think we are in the past." a voice whispered in mid-conversation. "Whatever my brother did, it caused a chain reaction that sent us all through time."
"But how far back?" a small squeaky voice asked. That one must have been "Flora."

Five more minutes until Orion's birthday party. Under normal circumstances, ponies would be expecting their guests to be fashionably late, but those ponies obviously never met the Pie family. Looking at the clock, Andromeda knew that the moment the large hand hit the "12," Berry and Cherry would be at the door.
They couldn't help themselves. Partying was in their blood as well as their upbringing. Andromeda figured any filly raised by Pinkie Pie would be that way. Waiting at the door, Orion and Andromeda smiled and readied to scare their friends in an unexpected welcoming. The twins were renowned for their sneakiness and pranks, so it was time they pulled one on them. Time slowed down as the final seconds inched their way up the clock's face. When the last second hit, the two unicorns threw open the door.

The rumble of thunder echoed in the distance while it whistled around Radiance, making her want to curl into a tight ball. She couldn't hear anything, open her eyes, or move more than a little, but she could feel the bitterness of the breeze down to her bones. Her body shivered and her mind could not think of anything but the cold, as if ice had frozen her in place. Slowly, her senses began to return, and only when the crackle of a small fire could be heard and felt did she relax. Her heavy eyes opened narrowly, watching the blurred movements of the amber sparks in front of her. Their dim glowing air patterns danced before her before rising up into the air and disappearing in the small plume of grey smoke.

His chest heaved with difficulty with each gasp of air becoming more shallow than the last while something clung tightly on his throat. His hoof grasped his neck to feel his Cutie Mark Crusader's cape. He had forgotten that he had put it on, but now it was choking him. Grasping at the knot, he tore it off, flooding oxygen into his lungs. He coughed loudly and painfully, gasping for a while before he sunk his head back to the cold floor. Taking the moment to catch his breath, his green eyes darted around, searching his surroundings. He was inside a small warm bedroom, not the cool basement where he once was. Stuffed animals surrounded him from all sides, their glass eyes watching his every move and motion an

One day in Equestria at Ponyville, it seemed like a normal day.
"So Twilight is anything happening this week?" asked Spike a small purple dragon with green spikes, to a purple unicorn with purple eyes, purple hair with pink/purple stripes, and a spark surround by smaller sparks for a cutie mark.
"Not much from what I know Spike." Twilight Sparkle replied browsing through the books in her library."We should see what the others are doing in a bit."
Her friends Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rarity were probably going about their daily lives.
After awhile Twilight and Spike left the library to walk around Ponyville. At one point they were approached by a pink Earth pony with poofy dark pink hair, bright blue eyes, and three balloons for a cutie mark.
"Hey Twilight! Hey Spike!" She said cheerfully hopping over to them playfully."What's up?"

Lewa, Gali, Pohatu, Kopaka, Takanuva, Jaller and Hahli admired the odd structure along with the surrounding area.

Later as the party thinned Pinkie said good-bye to the party guest and thanked them politely for coming.
While the Toa Nuva and the Matoran were still a little puzzled by all what had happened.....They had recently somehow ended up in a strange world, inhabited by odd talking Rahi, and they had no clue how they can get back to Mata Nui!
But at least the ponies and the little dragon are friendly allies.

Dashed Hopes- The Love of a Pegasus Father
I could feel her little hooves pressing down against by back. She jumped up and down excitedly as she gazed at the podium floating in front of us. A massive crowd had gathered, pegasi from all over Cloudsdale standing around, anxiously awaiting the verdict on which city would be lucky enough to host the Equestrian games that year.
My little Dashie had been so excited about it. For the weeks leading up to it, the announcement was all she talked about. Once a filly obsessed solely with flying, the Wonderbolts and napping had found a new stock to invest more of her passion into.
She bought so much Equestria Games memorabilia: from customized t-shirts and hats to even a pennant flag that she constantly trotted around the house with, waving it around while singing the Equestria Games’ anthem at the top of her lungs.
It didn’t matter how many times I told her the decision to hold the Games in Cloudsdale wasn’t set in stone a

"Happy Hearth's Warming Eve, Squirt"
The streets of Ponyville were empty- everypony had gone off to celebrate the holiday. The air was chilled, with an indigo sky so dark even the most dim stars stood out like giant fireflies. The sides of the street were lined with a thin layer of snow. It was an unusually snow-less Hearth's Warming Eve - briskly cold, but not cold enough for snow to remain in its crystallized state.
Scootaloo slowly trotted down the empty road, head hung low and tail tucked between her legs- both out of depression and as a means to keep herself warm in the chilly night air. The gentle gust, persistent in its presence, made the filly's purple mane flicker.
She lifted her head, her set of violet eyes looked left, then right. Nothing but darkened shops and illuminated homes, candles perched in the windowsills, flickering behind the glass as she walked on. She thought about her final destination - her

Rarity was quite nervous as she trotted with the two boys on their way to Fluttershy's cottage. She didn't know Cerebral Comet that well, but she did know she should. 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.
The silence was nearly killing the mare, so she decided to break it the only way she knew how.
"So, Comet, how'd you get this assignment?" She asked bluntly.
The psychologist looked at the fashionista, smiled and sighed. "I'll tell you when I figure that out. Best guess the princess asked Lord Inkblot who his best student was, and inste

The morning sun rose, shining upon Ponyville. Beams of light came through the windows of the living quarters at Ponyville Library. Slowly moving across the floor until they landed on a small basket in the middle of the room, containing a small purple dragon named Spike.
The light woke him, and as he stirred in his bed, opening his eyes to the world, a question ran through his head, on one wall, he saw the answer indicated on a wall calendar. It was Saturday, and the day before, Friday, was crossed out. But he could still read what was well-marked in Friday's square: "Rarity's Funeral"
He stood, yawned and stretched his arms wide, recovering from a long night's sleep. He looked over at the dresser at one end of the room, and noticed a gold ring sitting on top of it. Getting out of his bed, he walked over, and examined the ring, it was exactly as he last left it, tiny fragments of the original gemstone were still lodged in

A bluish-purple pony...a alicorn with a flowing navy blue mane and tail, a necklace with a mark that matched her cutie mark, and a purple tiara was once again out on the balcony in the middle of the night. She was the master of the moon, represented by the crescent moon cutie mark on her flank. She was also the younger of two sisters. She was using her power to watch over Equestria. She has been doing this often recently because she was searching for somepony...somepony from long ago...somepony from before she became Nightmare Moon.
Little did she know that she herself was being watched as well. She was being watched by the older of the two siblings, a white alicorn with a pastel rainbow colored mane and tail that flowed like her sister's. She had a necklace that had a diamond making in it and a golden crown. She had a sun cutie mark on her flank. She was worried about her little sister. She seemed to be having trouble accep

“So Sweetie Belle's sleeping problems are involved with nightmares then?” Twilight asked as she levitated a book over to her.
“Well, I'm not one hundred percent certain that it's a nightmare,” Rarity replied, “You see, last night she came into my room asking to sleep with me. She claimed that she thought she had a nightmare.”
“What do you mean she thought she had a nightmare?” Twilight asked skeptically, “You either had a nightmare or you didn't. There is no think.”
“That was my reaction as well,” Rarity said, “But she claims that she has no memories of what she dreamt about.”
“Well, to help her, I don't necessarily need to know what her nightmare was about,” Twilight said, “And not being able to remember what your dream was about is common place in dreaming. I can just use a spell to-”
“Even if you don't remember what you

"Spike, aren't you done cleaning in there yet?" a purple unicorn with a darker purple mane and tail said. This was a powerful unicorn and Princess Celestia's own pupil, Twilight Sparkle, "SPIKE?" Twilight was just finishing neatening up her study.
"I just finished cleaning the floor of the upstairs...for the fourth time," a young purple dragon with green frills said in a sarcastic tone. He was coming down the stairs from the upper level of the library.
"Then maybe you should clean up a fifth time," Twilight said frantically, "Then make sure that all of the books are categorized, then alphabetized. And then-"
"TWILIGHT!" Spike shouted, snapping the frantic unicorn out of her frantic list checking, "You're overreacting...and over working me. And it's still only the morning, and princess Celestia isn't coming until this afternoon."
Twilight was frantic because of a letter that she received from Princess Celestia the day before...

Pinkie Pie was in the nursery pulling a blanket over the now sleeping Cake twins, “Sweet dreams little Cakes,” Pinkie said quietly before leaving them to take their nap.
At that moment, Mr. and Mrs. Cake had returned to a clean home once again. Pinkie Pie has proven just how responsible she is when she's foalsitting their children, “Once again, you've done a great job taking care of the twins for us,” Mr. Cake said.
“I'm sure that you must be tired after taking care of them. We know how much of a hoof full they can be,” Mrs. Cake added.
“It's not that bad! It takes allot more than a couple of foals to drain my energy!” Pinkie Pie exclaimed before remembering that the twins were taking a nap, “I'm just glad that they're potty trained now. No more changing stinky diapers.”
“We couldn't agree with you more,” Mrs. Cake agreed with a smile, “I assume that now you're off to see your

“WOW! I can't believe we're almost finished!” Twilight exclaimed as she was putting on the finishing touches to the new model for the Cyba program. She was wearing shaded goggles and was using a welding torch, “Back when we were first working on Project Cyba, it would've taken us at least a year to have finished. And with technology how it was back then, it wouldn't have even been as good.”
“Well if it wasn't for the work I put into my studies, I'd probably only be a quarter of the way done with the programing by now. A third at best,” Dark Angel said. Dark Angel was in front of a computer screen making the finishing touches on the AI program. He was wearing what appeared to be a pair of robotic boots that had talons on them that resembled that of a gryphon or a dragon, “Then again, part of that would be no more than a speed issue.

"So, Dax, where are you from?" Scootaloo asked Dax curiously.
"I was originally from Fillydelphia," Dax replied, "But then Princess Tia took me to Canterlot to live with her in the castle."
"Princess Tia?" Sweetie Belle asked.
"Princess Celstia," Dax replied, mispronouncing Celestia's name.
"Don'cha mean 'Celestia'?" Apple Bloom asked.
"That's what I said. Celstia," Dax said.
Twilight couldn't help but giggle at Dax's inability to pronounce 'Celestia', "Why don't the four of you go play a game," Twilight suggested with a smile.
"Hey Dax, do you know how to play hide-and-seek?" Scootaloo exclaimed.
"That was one of my favorite games to play with princess Tia and princess Luny!" Dax replied equally as excited. The four fillies then ran off to play their game.
As Twilight watched the fillies have fun, her mind went back to what princess Celestia had told her about Dax...

“This one slight modification to the programing should do it,” Dark Angel said as he took out USB connector to the computer, “It should allow Cyba to understand basic things, so we won't have to answer one of his questions every five seconds.”
Cyba was still activated while Dark Angel was uploading the updates to the AI program, “So, Cyba, how are you functioning?” Twilight asked.
“I now understand that even though vibrating and trembling are, by definition, the same thing, they are commonly used in different context,” Cyba explained, “And when something is spoken out of context, it can be viewed as inappropriate. For example, the phrase 'Fluttershy vibrating behind Dark Angel' could be misinterpreted as a s-”

PUSH!!!” a light blue earth pony named Nurse Tenderheart shouted as she was encouraging a pegasus mare with a white coat, a golden mane and tail, and a cutie mark of the sun shining through the clouds. The pegasus' mane was matted with sweat as she attempted to give birth.

In the middle of the night, as Luna's moon shone down on the little town of Ponyville, everything seemed so peaceful. And for the most part that was true. However, a dark figure was standing on the Carousel Boutique, a dark red glow shining from his horn.
However, this was no unicorn. Even though this pony had a horn, there was something more to him than what meets the eye. And being as dark as he is, and in the shadows, and being the middle of the night with everypony asleep, (and being on top of the boutique where nopony can see him), nopony could get a good look at him...
...Well, almost nopony.
Suddenly, the glow from his horn stopped as if a connection was broken.

Not even the insects creep.

Scootaloo was riding on her scooter as fast as she possibly could. The teenage Pegasus was about to get as much air as she possibly could by jumping her scooter off a ramp and then jumping off that scooter. Once in the air she would probably drop her scooter down below and use her wings to fly. With the speed she gained on the ground she would attempt to pull off some tricks that any Wonderbolt watching from below would be impressed with.
She hit the jump and went into the air just as she wanted to. Once there, and after making sure nopony was below, she dropped her scooter and started flying. The speed and adrenaline was coursing through her body as she flew faster and faster. Being that she was a late bloomer from her old parents never teaching her how to fly, the show she was doing was really impressive.
Alright Scootaloo, let's see if you can do this, Scootaloo thought to herself. Rainbow Dash may be the only pony that could do this before, but she was also your mentor.
