Twilight was still lying on the floor of the library, but Dash and Pinkie were no longer beside her and Zecora and the others were nowhere to be seen. She stood up and as she did she noticed that sunlight was streaming in through the windows. She opened the door to the library and looked outside. It was a beautiful sunny day. A light breeze ruffled her mane, while above her fluffy white clouds floated serenely against the blue vault of a summer sky.
"Is... is this really a dream?" she wondered. But it all seemed so real! Twilight didn't know what she'd been expecting gloomy forests, twisted buildings, labyrinthine streets filled with grotesque illusions maybe?
She was about to go outside when she stepped on something lying on the floor. It was an envelope! She floated it up for a closer look.
To Twilight Sparkle! From your bestest friend forever, Pinkie Pie!<

Twilight looked out the window of her study at the swirling black clouds and she frowned. "That is by far the strangest storm I have ever seen."
She had spent the afternoon trying to find information about the history of unnatural storms hitting Ponyville and by unnatural, she of course meant storms that had originated over the Everfree Forest rather than in the Storm Factory in Cloudsdale. But try as she may to concentrate, the whole business between Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie was preoccupying her.
She slammed the tome in front of her closed in frustration. "I've read that same sentence TEN TIMES now!" she muttered. "Confound these ponies! They drive me to distraction..."
She stared out the window. The whole town had been plunged into an eerie darkness. The winds that had come up around an hour ago were growing in intensity. The leaves of the tree the library had been built into shivered and rustled a

Pinkie was busy with the dishes in the kitchen as Dash lugged the heavy bags of trash out to the back alley behind the bakery. But there was already a pile of garbage there, and it was difficult to find any space for the bags she was carrying.
Dash shook her head in annoyance. "Smoggy and Patchy you guys! What a time to be taking an extended vacation!" She flew up and placed one of her trash bags gingerly on the top of the already teetering pile. "You'd think the Mayor would have organised somepony other than Derpy Hooves to be in charge of the trash collection while they're away." Flying back down, she collected another bag and flew it to the top of the pile. "When will " she grabbed another bag, "everypony learn" and another, "that Derpy just isn't the most" and another. "dependable of ponies?"
The last bag was on top now, and the tower began to sway.

"I do hope Rarity and the fillies are OK " thought Twilight as she battled her way through the driving rain. "I don't want to imagine what damage Applebloom and her friends have done to the boutique by now, stuck inside out of this storm!"
Her hooves splashed up muddy water as she trotted, soaking her legs, while about her the storm continued to ravage the little town. Trees bent in the growling winds and the rain was now almost a vertical wall that she had to struggle through. The umbrella she had brought from the library had long since been blown out of her telekinetic grip, and had spiralled off into the deepening darkness.
Twilight was almost at Rarity's boutique when a pony came rushing up to her out of the gloom. It was Nurse Mercy, the head of the Ponyville hospital, and she was in such a hurry that she almost ran straight into the unicorn pony.
"Oh, Twilight Sparkle!" Mercy shout

As they approached Sugar Cube Corner, things were strangely quiet in the bakery. It seemed to be closed. Had something happened to Mr and Mrs Cake? Pinkie had felt a little twitchy but it was a kind of twitch she had never felt before. It had started in her tail and travelled up her spine, detoured down her right foreleg then back across her shoulders and down her LEFT foreleg, until finally coming back up to her neck and finishing in her ears, which had gone all floppy. It wasn't a doozy but it WAS something big!
Spike had stubbornly refused to tell her anything as they hurried back.
"No time for explanations, Pinkie Pie!" he had replied to her excited, incessant questions as he bounced up and down on her back. "Besides, it something you've got to see for yourself!"
"I know, I know, I know!" Pinkie Pie had chirped, "Butwhatisitwhatisitwhatis

It had been a few hours since the human said anything. Long enough to worry Applejack. “Y’all still with me, Leslie?”
“It’s Tex,” the voice groaned back.
A moment passed and then it came again, carrying a note of concern. “What about yourself, ‘Jack? Christ, you sounded like a chorus of frogs back there.”
She gave a weak laugh, but didn’t dare waste any more energy on it. “It’s mah nose. Keeps running, but keeps freezing soon as it gets out. Think if I gave it a good blow, ice cubes would come out.”
Freezing. Ice. She spat a curse as the thought made her start shivering. It started with her front right, then spread like lightning to the rest of her body.

He was alone.
Hard to believe how strange the feeling was. General McAuliffe glanced around the planning room, blinking, wondering at the solitude. The worse things got, the fewer people were here. The officers were all on errands. Some were pulling together troops, others leading them into battle. The aids, the hanger-ons and walking wounded, all of them had been pulled into the fight.
He kind of missed the chatter. The liveliness, the spunk. They had done so damn good, his officers, his men.
For a few days he couldn’t take a leak without someone shouting ‘Nuts!’ They loved it. A catchphrase, a one-word summary of their battle-plan. ‘Nuts to you, Jerry. We’re still in this.’
McAuliffe studied the map. He’d looked at it so much he could recall every detail, but it was something to keep himself busy. Stra

Several days after the winter offensive began, Allied commanders finally realized the strength behind the assault. Patton was already aligning his forces for a counterblow, but the engaged units were floundering for want of leadership. The battered 1st and 9th US armies were nominally under General Bradley's command, but the ill-lucked officer was in Paris when the attack struck. Eisenhower needed a leader for the defense, and he needed it yesterday.
General Montgomery would have been a solid, but controversial choice. As a veteran of the Africa front, he was well-versed in deflecting the blitzkrieg with ad-hoc forces. But he was distrusted by his allies. Cooperation with the Cloud Kickers would be essential, and they despised him for blaming the Arnhem defeat on Soarin. With the old Anglo-American rivalry rising, the US armies would scarcely be more cooperative.
Instead, Eisenhower settled on a less-disliked, but no less controversial a

It was silly. The horses were stupid beasts, far dumber than even the goats of Equestria. But the steeds towered head and shoulders above Sweetie Pie, and she couldn't help but be a little scared of them.
Most of the cavalrymen ignored her, thoughts turned towards the crisis at hand. A few sent her sly glances, mentally comparing their huge chargers to the stubby pony. Others frowned – the Poles had no love for Equestrians, or any other outsider for that matter.
Still, it was better than Germany. She went to Konigsberg University to study physics, but it had gotten…bad. Bad enough for her to make an unscheduled move to Poland.
She poked her companion with her hoof. "Are we done? How many pictures of horses do you need?"

Chapter 6: Warlocks in Winter (Part 1)
December 16, 1944
"Soldiers, our hour has arrived. We are part of the army launching a major offensive against the Anglo-American-Equestrians. Do your duty to the absolute best of your ability, for we gamble everything. Germany gambles everything. You have your orders nothing more need be said."
Colonel Peiper's speech was crisp and professional. No excessive words or gestures, just a green light and a blunt reminder of the stakes. His men didn't need anything else. They were Waffen-SS: the best of the best, warriors first, everything else second. They knew his measure, and he knew theirs. Speeches were for politicians.
Which was good, because he didn't have time for a speech. As panzers and halftracks gunned to life, he mentally cursed every moment lost. The German army had massed in secret, hidden by the winter overcast. As

Pain. That was what her world had become.
Before, there were memories of a peaceful time. Righteous anger tempered with cautious planning. A word: D-Day. The sight of the war hanging in the balance on bloodstained beaches. Men pinned down, dying in droves. A desperate plan. The pegasi rushing over the beaches towards the machine-gun nests and bunkers. Her mithral-clad hooves breaking a grey-uniformed man's ribs. The first time she had ever killed. His compatriot turning to her with a rifle.
But now it was all gone, leaving only the pain behind. Her mouth was open in a silent scream, the body behind it forgetting to breath. It was just her knee, but the feeling consumed the rest of her. Fractured bone grated on bullet fragments and muscle. It was a horrid, grinding feeling that banished every

Appologies for the hiatus with that. I just really needed to get those commissions out of the way. Now that those are done, I can put a lot more focus into finishing that 15 page comic.
I am going to ATTEMPT to dish out a new page every two weeks. Might be more, might be less. Ya gotta understand that comic take a lot longer to make than just one picture. If anyone has tips on how to make comics faster, by all means, please share!
And here's a little meter telling you the progress of each comic page, for your convenience.
