It was a dark and cold moonlit night; the stars were twinkling elegantly in the clear sky above. Fluttershy enjoyed this amazing beauty, and all of its tranquility. She usually frequented this activity for herself during the night when she didn't have to manage her animal friends or deal with any other pony. But this time, the Shy Pegasus brought along a friend to join her. Not just any friend, but instead her best friend, Rainbow Dash. Rainbow had been acting a tad weird and distant lately. It was very peculiar, especially for someone like her. She usually was very outgoing and socially aggressive all of the time.
The reason for her Rainbow Maned friend to be so distant from her or the other ponies wasn't a mystery in the slightest. Fluttershy knew exactly why she had been acting this way.
About two weeks back, Fluttershy and Rainbow dash had been planning going up to Cloudsdale for a visit. The idea was Rainbow's and she didn't want to go alone; Besides, Flutter

It was a warm and lit as the sun rose in the morning. Animals were creeping out of their habitats and looking around, going about their every day routine. Fluttershy was still sleeping when Rainbow awoke. She lifted her sleepy head and yawned, she wasn't a morning pony. But that didn't matter, not this morning; she soon realized who she woke up next to and the memories of the night before came back to her. A smile overtook her face as she blushed and looked down to her sleeping friend.
"She looks so perfect when she's sleeping, like an angel" Rainbow whispered to herself.
She decided she wouldn't wake the sleeping pony just yet as she sat down on the grass and leaned back against a tree.
Wow, what a night; she still couldn't believe it had happened, easily the best moment of her life. Dashie sat there for awhile, her heart pounding as she watched Fluttershy peacefully sleeping a few inches away from her. What more could she ask for? She got to spend a

Although the sun was slowly setting, it was bright inside of Sugar Cube Corner; "Equestria's Premiere Sweet Shop". Inside there were party decorations and games galore; Streamers, Balloons, Confetti, Pin the tail on the pony, and a big, yellow cake. Pinkie Pie was busy bouncing around and blowing her party whistle, Twilight was reading a book, and Rarity and Applejack were sitting at a table.
"Pinkie Pie; have you seen Fluttershy or Rainbow Dash yet?" Twilight asked curiously. At the sound of her name the pink pony stopped and spit out the whistle. She then put her hoof to her chin and tried to think back.
"Hmmmmmm can't say that I have Twilight" Pinkie Pie responded with little care as she went back to bouncing around the room. Twilight sighed and facehooved at her friend's random and uncaring behavior.
"Well we simply can't start the party without at least Fluttershy here" Rarity insisted "Speaking of which, why isn't she here Twilight? Didn't you say yo

Twilight Sparkle didn't know if she should have been shocked or amazed as she looked upon the two sleeping ponies in front of her. She rubbed her mane in confusion and paced around the clearing. It was clear that the two Pegasi had been very close friends since they were fillies, but that didn't explain this; it didn't explain anything!
She had to think back on it, but first she had to think back on how she even got here to witness this event.
It was early in the morning; Twilight had made sure she was the first pony up this day. After all, she did have quite a busy day ahead of her. She had made her schedule, and she had double checked and triple checked it, as always.
Spike was still sleeping in his bed; he was always a stubborn riser. But that didn't matter today anyhow; Twilight didn't need his help like she did so many other times. She sat down in her library, and began to focus. She was going to reshelf today, and it w

It was a nice day out in Canterlot, The capital of Equestria. The sun had risen and everypony was busy with their own agenda as many of them walked down the street with heads high, eyes closed, suits on, not caring to look to anypony else as they passed on by. They were looking as snobbish as ever.
Twilight Sparkle was sitting outside of a very fancy restaurant named "l'amour de la nourriture". Twilight didn't know what it meant in English, but it sure did sound high class and professional. Then again, didn't French make anything sound that way? She made a note to look it up later in one of her books.
The restaurant resided in the less expensive district of Canterlot. As much as the purple mare would love to, she couldn't afford to eat in a restaurant that charged over 20 bits for a small and unfilling appetizer.
A waiter dressed in a black suit with a white color came up to her what she would like to order. The question caught Twilight off guard since s

Twilight closed her eyes as a tear graced her cheek; she had not thought about her loss for a long time, she had tried to push it to the furthest corner of her mind. All the heartbreak and sorrow she had felt on that day wasn't good for her to keep in her memory. But she knew now that there was a chance for the same thing to happen again, and she couldn't let it happen. She couldn't bear the thought of loosing Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy, or even worse, all of her friends to this relationship. If one of them were dating a colt or mare outside of their circle of friends Twilight would mind it. But if something happens too deep into the relationship, the heartbreak will directly affect everypony she holds dear.
Twilight paced around her dimly lit library deep in thought. She had to do something that would work, but what could work? She didn't know any colt of mare that she could have come in and she knew neither Fluttershy nor Rainbow would cheat on one an

"Fluttershy? Fluttershy, can you hear me?"
Fluttershy's eyes slowly opened as blood rapidly rushed to her head. She sheepishly rose, rubbing her eyes and shaking her mane out. The blurriness in her eyes prevented her from receiving and interrupting any clear vision what so ever. After a few blinks and another shake of her mane she managed to break the spell sleep casted on her eyesight. Upon receiving clear vision once more she was able to notice something peculiar.
She wasn't in her house.
For that matter, she wasn't in anypony's house; or the forest, or the spa, or in her garden. She wasn't even in Ponyville. Fluttershy rapidly moved her head from side to side, trying to gather where she was. The only things able to be seen for miles were white and fluffy clouds. No blue sky below them, no objects upon them, no citi

"Twilight? Twilight, are you awake?"
Twilight's ears rung violently from the aftershock of the explosion, barely able to understand the simplest of dialogue as she slowly attempted to rise. She lightly shook her head, little pieces of gravel and dirt falling out of her mane and rolling over her entire body. She tried to move forward, but quickly leaned back against the tree she found herself in front of. Her head felt like someone had token two symbols and bashed them against the sides, the loud sound reverberating throughout her ears, through her skull and down her entire being. Her eyes slightly fluttered as she examined herself. The damage wasn't too bad, she had a few cuts and bruises scattered around her chest and stomach, one of her legs had a deep cut where a sharp branch had unfortunately scraped across it and was bleeding profusely; and from what she could tell, which wasn't much considering the state of her blurry vision, she was bleeding somewhe

"Oof!" Twilight grunted when the hoof angrily met her cheek, sending her to the ground below with a hard 'thud'. Her face stung like a mother-bucker, a bright red mark on her right cheek from where she had been hit. Her head felt worse than it had when she had awoken from the explosion; and oh, was it painful. It felt as if someone had spent the whole day using her skull as a drum-set. She shakily rose to her hooves, turning her head to the side and spitting out blood before turning again to face Rainbow Dash. Rainbow's face showed an expression of only pure hatred and anger. She usually was always loyal to her friends and attempted to keep it that way; never once having crossed the line before. But this wasn't her fault; Twilight had brought this upon herself. This was her fault, and she was going to get it, big time.
Twilight wiped the blood from her lip, growling a bit at the rainbow-maned pony in front of her. Rainbow stared right back at he
