Sibling Rivalry: Chapter Fifteen - Fire

Scootaloo wasn't one to let anything go too easily. When someone said something stupid, she would let them have it... unless they were already doing that for her. "You're mad at me, aren't you?" Twilight asked, as the two trotted up the boulevard. "No," the pegasus responded, coldly. The silence ate at her. "Okay, I didn't know how dragon minds worked. Is that my fault? I just didn't think it was a big deal." "It wouldn't be, if Sweetie Belle wasn't a pony." Twilight sighed in exasperation. "I guess I'm still new at this." Then a realization hit her. "Wait, how do you know so much?" Scootaloo tried to avert her gaze. "Uh... can we talk

Twilights Endgame: Nothing But Dust and Blood

It was a calm day on the streets of Ponyville, a rare sight in the growing little city. Twilight looked up at the sky above, seeing only pale blue, with only the occasional white fluffiness shuffled about by various pegasi. The streets below were populated by ponies wandering to and fro, just going about their daily routine. "Morning, Twilight," came a voice. She turned to see a pony wave to her. "Good morning," she responded, passing by and continuing to trot down the road, head held high. She was on her way to visit Carousel Boutique. Her best friend, Rarity, needed some assistance with her latest collection; and like any good friend, she had offered to help. Her trot picked up into a canter, as she continued down the street. Nothing could go wrong, this day, she thought. ------------------------------------------------ Spike laid down in his bed, relaxing. It was almost midday. He hadn't started on any of his daily chores, but he didn't feel he needed to. It was one of those

My Little Destiny: Prologue - The New Dawn

A silvery blue sky was filled with scattered white clouds.  On the ground, swamplands were filled with exotic animals unique to the land, with trees bending over, framing the sky and surrounding a small bench, out-of-place in the alien world.  Three bodies dominated the sky.  One had a greenish hue, and stripes of various shades, it could be seen just hovering at the horizon, two-thirds of it hidden by the world itself.  Near the green giant, was a smaller moon, which was orange and smooth.  At best guess, it might be a world of sand, or liquid.  With so little definition it was the

With Rainbow Hair: Chapter One - The Fight

Twilight Sparkle ran through the stone hallways under the Marjave Citadel.  Levitating in front of her, in her magical grip, was a large obsidian stone in the shape of a cylinder.  It was jet black and almost featureless, save for the gold accents at either end, each featuring a single amethyst gemstone set within. The unicorn emerged in a small room, dominated by a spiral staircase spinning upward.  She quickly ran up the stairs.  At her rapid pace, she arrived at the top in no time at all, and leaped through the broken frame of the formerly hidden doorway. The shining blue hallways glowed as Twilight galloped through.  She passed painting

Sibling Rivalry: Chapter One - Night

There comes a time in every young dragon's life, when thoughts turn to love.  Within dragon society this time is full of celebration and joy, as they find their first mate and, in some cases, settle down for a lifetime of happiness.  Conflict in this department, while common, is quickly quashed among them, as one of the core tenants of dragon society is to save your strength for the real fights.  Time and energy is too precious to waste on lover's quarrels.  Rules clearly set out how to resolve romantic disputes.  Unfortunately, for one dragon, these rules are an unknown, a complete mystery.  Which is a real pity for him, because this week, i

A Waking Dragon: Chapter One - The Pink Stone

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, ya
