Shutdown
"Would you tell anypony if you knew the world was going to end?"
Twilight Sparkle paused in the middle of raising a steaming cup of cocoa to her lips and stared at Carrot Top. "The world? Going to end?"
Carrot Top just nodded, her face a blank slate.
Twilight took a quick sip before she replied. "Well, hypothetically speaking-"
"No," Carrot cut in, then softened her voice. "No, not just hypothetically. Please, think about this before you answer."
Twilight shook her head. "But there's so much I don't know." She rose to her hooves and paced back and forth across the hardwood of the library's floor. "Would it happen all at once, like an explosion, or would it be a few minutes, or hours, during which everypony would be scared?"
Carrot finally broke into a small smile. "I should have expected this." The smile dropped away as she answered, "All at once. About three and a half hours from now."
Twilight stopped and looked back and forth between Carrot Top's green eyes. The cup of cocoa hovered

Operation Get-lestia
"Rainbow?"
"Bml mblph." Rainbow Dash curled up into a tighter ball, nestling her snout between her front hooves.
"How in tarnation did you even manage to fall asleep in a barrel?" A hoof shook the pegasus by the shoulder. "C'mon, wakey wakey."
"Spitfire, watch out," Dash mumbled, her tail flicking.
Applejack took a deep breath as she grabbed hold of the top of the barrel and leaned over the edge. "RAINBOW DASH!"
The cyan pony yelped and kicked her legs out, bursting the barrel open in all directions like a blooming flower. The wide metal ring formerly supporting the barrel's rim came to rest around her neck as she glared up at the unwelcome alarm clock. "What the hay, Applejack?!"
"Ah thought you were s'posed to clear the clouds this morning, on account of the royal visit?"
"Yeah. And I did." Rainbow Dash rubbed the sleep from one eye with the back of a hoof and gestured up at the clear, blue sky with the other.
"You missed a spot," Applejack sniped, pointing at the one cloud le

Nocturne - Part 2, Conclusion
Okay, maybe this wasn't the best idea...
Luna peered out from a bush on the edge of the Whitetail Wood. Her tail stuck out of the other end of the shrubbery, but she hoped nopony would notice.
Celestia had just set the Sun, and in short order two mares from Ponyville had started a campfire. She recognized them as part of the group who had fought Nightmare Moon, but she couldn't recall the names of the behatted orange earth pony or the white unicorn who held herself with such poise. I'll find out later, Luna decided, determined not to forget once she did.
However it wasn't the two adult ponies that had drawn Luna there, but the three fillies they were chaperoning. Luna watched the trio run back and forth across the clearing, shouting something about cutie marks. They were so busy they didn't even seem to have noticed that it had become nighttime.
Luna felt more and more nervous the longer she watched them play. It was obvious that they were close friends. How do

Nocturne - Part 1
Dear Twilight Sparkle,
I would be more than happy to visit Ponyville and discuss my recent changes to the night in more detail. Please reply with the most convenient evening for you to host, and please keep this as just a simple social call! Also, you may want to invite Sweetie Belle. I believe she may enjoy our conversation.
Sincerely yours,
Luna
Two Months Earlier...
Princess Luna's horn glowed as she snapped the copy of "A History of Equestria: XXIV" closed. She tossed it onto an ornately engraved table with a thump, grimacing as she eyed the stack of sibling volumes she had yet to crack open. The alicorn's gaze again wandered to the door outside, to her personal balcony, and this time she gave in and stepped out of her quarters and into the fresh air.
Canterlot spread out before her, whites and golds, but her eyes were drawn to the stylized Sun decorating the tip of a nearby tower. From there she looked out to the real Sun, just preparing t

Pinkie Pie's Super Prank
Pinkie Pie's Incredible Interplanetary Super Prank
Twilight Sparkle's head shot up, eyes wide. A stray thought had interrupted her reading and struck terror deep into her heart.
Pinkie Pie had been quiet for hours! In a library!
The unicorn rushed from her room and down the stairs to the main floor, then let out a relieved whoosh of air at the sight of the pink pony. Pinkie was right where she left her, reading by candlelight from one of the many open books splayed across the library's largest table.
Twilight watched as Pinkie leaned over a book, eyes flicking side to side. Then the earth pony shifted one big step to the side, flipped the page of the next book, and leaned in close to the words. She only seemed to take around five seconds per book before moving on to the next.
"How do you manage to learn anything like that?" Twilight asked.
"By reading the words, silly," Pinkie replied without lifting her head, stepping to the next book in line. The exchange of words didn'

My Little Parcel
"Where is it? Where is it!" Rainbow Dash shook her empty saddlebags upside-down again, but it still proved fruitless. The pegasus growled and stomped a hoof, the floor of her cloud castle answering with a peal of thunder. A Ponyvillian passing below squeaked and broke into a gallop.
Where could it be? Dash thought to herself. Where was the last place I saw it? It was...
She visualized the box, gift wrapped in shiny royal blue paper and a red bow on top. The pony running the store had demanded to wrap it up for her free of charge when she lied and said it was a gift. Afterwards he had passed the package over the counter and it went straight into a saddlebag.
Then there was the trip across the plains and hills and through the mountain pass and into the woods... And then she got back home, emptied out the bags, and the box was missing! But--
"Oh yeah!" Everypony had piled their saddlebags together the night before, on the way back to Ponyville. Just before breaking camp that

I'm a painfully unprolific writer who is very happy to share some stories with you! I truly hope you enjoy. There's more to see on my Fimfiction site, so follow the link below!

I'm also a consultant and writer with Enterplay making the official MLP:FIM trading cards, a founding staff member of BronyCon, co-organizer of the Albany Bronies meetup group, a retired EQD pre-reader, and I ran the Humble Brony Bundle back in the day.

Favorite cartoon character: Pinkie Pie, though throw Twi and Dash in with her to make the best OT3 ever.

Hello cupcakesnom, I am collecting information for a listing of Brony organised and funded charities and was wandering, of the $35,659 you raised did 60% go to the charities listed on your site? or is this the figure that went to charity after the 40% indie game developer and humble bundle.inc cut? I just want to know so I can make the charity listings as accurate as possible.

CupcakesNom Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013
I always selected 60% to go to charity, but there are three issues:

A) The charities changed across many Humble Indie Bundles. The Wikipedia page for the HIB keeps track of which charities were supported when. [link]

B) I believe I checked every time, but there is a chance that there was a "default split" between the charities that wasn't even AND a chance that I didn't check that time and even it out.

C) There was at least one Bundle, the Mojang Bundle, that went purely to charity.

Sorry for the complications!

:iconactionmastermegatron:
OK, thanks any I've got managed to work out the amount raised based on the 60% anyway, which is the most accurate number, anyway you'll be glad to know that the charities have reached over $360,000 thanks partially to the bundle.

You can't choose your brother
Your, sister, your mother,
Your father's a given, it's true.
But you can choose a friend
And I'd choose you again
Cause it shows my good taste picking you.
