Watching Over
When one lived as long as Starswirl, dwelling in a realm between realms where time and space would never act in the way they SHOULD, you'd have a lot of time to kill. The old unicorn sat quietly in his favourite chair, watching the fires before him, with a beloved book within his hooves. A sigh escaped him, and he'd flip through page after page, enjoying the story as best he could. Granted, he'd read this book many times over, which was odd when he literally had every conceivable book anyone from any reality could have ever written. But, when you had your favourites, you tended to go back to them. A smile was upon his lips, and overall, it looked as though he was in a good and relaxed state right now. But, as the moments passed, his eyes would drift over to the table in the centre of his study, and he'd show hesitation. But then, he'd look back to his book, and then back and forth, before finally releasing a deep exhale, setting his book aside.
"...Very well then."

Up the Mountain
Ponyville, though it had experienced its fair share of catastrophes over the years, was nevertheless regarded as one of the more quiet and peaceful corners of Equestria. But, while this may have indeed been the case, it was also fairly well-accepted that the town was surrounded by a number of other places that had a somewhat LESS pleasant reputation to them. The Everfree Forest was one such notable example of this, but coming second to that was the towering mountain that lay just outside the fields around Ponyville. This place was treacherous to go to, both for its unstable terrain, but also because of the rather noted incident of the time when it became home to a fierce dragon. Granted, the beast had departed some time ago, but even so, the knowledge that it had been there had kept many away from that mountain ever since.
But, it appeared a though, today at least, yet another dragon would be making their way up to that high place, though admittedly not to the same statue as the PREVIO

Enough is Enough!
Even though Rainbow had long ago learned to love practising her guitar skills alongside her friends, there was no denying that she was nevertheless an incredibly talented solo player. And today seemed to prove that, as she shredded away with her beloved instrument in her and her friends' favoured hang-out spot, the Canterlot High music room. On and on she played, with a look of utter confidence upon her face, never once hitting a bad note or missing a beat as she demonstrated just how skilled she was at this. And moreover, she certainly seemed to be doing well enough that her one lone audience member, Fluttershy, had a wide smile herself, as she listened to the loud yet entertaining song that was being played for her. But, as with all things, this solo came to an end, and Rainbow let out a long sigh after her performance, looking to Fluttershy with her usual look of bravado.
"Well?"
Standing up from her chair, Fluttershy gave an enthusiastic clap of her hands.
"That was very good, Rain

Stray Thoughts
Sunset and her friends, having finished their regular band practise with one another, now found themselves feeling more than satisfied over the great music they'd been playing together. But, with this time now over, they set to work on making sure all of their instruments were put away properly. That is, with the exception of Twilight, who didn't actually HAVE an instrument right now. Instead, the young scientist simply sat to one side along with Spike, petting him slightly while she watched her other friends all do what they were doing. Applejack and Rainbow, naturally, were laughing to themselves over who was making the best music during their session, while Rarity had taken to polishing her own, making it shine like the sun, much to her delight. Fluttershy was enjoying a quiet moment with her own pet, Angel, and Pinkie was giving her drumsticks a few twirls, which seemed to amuse her quite a bit. Meanwhile, Sunset, who was the first to put her instrument away, looked to the rest of

Cakes and Pies
When one entered the kitchen intended for the Canterlot High cooking club, they were often taken aback by very powerful and alluring smells. The smells of cakes, pies, and many other assorted goodies that caused their mouths to water from just the tiniest whiff. Today was by no means an exception, as the six youths were hard at work on the new cake recipe they planned to carry out. Flash, Derpy, Pinkie, Sandalwood and Velvet were, in their own respective corner of the kitchen, each carefully preparing the ingredients necessary to get their cake in order. And last, but certainly not least, was Rainbow Dash. In contrast to the rest of the group, however, the young athlete was NOT preparing any ingredients, but rather simply standing to one side and staring at an open cook book. Specifically, it was the page that held the recipe they were using today, and she squinted hard at every step needed for it. Eventually, and after a long silence, she let out a sigh, turning to her half-brother.

Play On!
With the bell having rung some time ago, the students of CHS had largely taken to the cafeteria for their lunch-time, and as such, there was a great buzz of chatter from that building that was heard all the way around the immediate area. As such, many who happened to be nearby could very easily hear just how crowded and noisy it was in there right now. But, for those who had taken to going OUTSIDE for their lunch, in was a different matter. Here, things were a lot calmer, with fewer people and, quite frankly, just a nice bit of sunshine to brighten up their day. Upon the school steps, all close together, was one such group that was enjoying this lovely weather; CHS' school band. Their leader, Baton Twirl, was hard at work at her namesake skill, twirling her baton with great vigour while her band-mates watched. Many of these latter students were busy with their respective lunches, but one, the boy sitting beside the tuba, soon broke the silence between them.

A century ago, the largest conflict that humankind had known up to that point, was brought to an end. World War One, or the Great War, lasted from 1914 to 1918. Millions died, millions more suffered, and the world was forever marked by it. Whatever the world was like prior to the fighting, it had been completely transformed by the time it was finished. WW1 was, for all intents and purposes, the spark that set off the modern world we know today, laying down the groundwork for nations, rivalries, technologies and everything that would come after. 

Much has been said about this war. It was said to be "the war to end all wars", that it was a waste of life, that it was a necessary stepping stone from the way the world was before. Regardless of what has been said about it however, there can be no denying the immeasurable impact it's had. However you feel about it, I think it's important that we remember it and those who never came home from it. So today, let's remember the fallen, the countless people who went to fight for their country, and would, as a result, never see those countries again.

I remember thinking a great deal about it four years ago, when we marked the 100-year anniversary of the start of the conflict. And now, here we are, four years after that anniversary. And those four years seem long to us, but just remember, there were once those who spent that entire length of time fighting. Four years of waiting in trenches, charging into enemy gunfire, working every moment of the day to push forward with fellow soldiers. It is something that sent shivers through me when I stopped to think about it this morning, to go through that kind of horrific experience. Today was not the first time I dwelt on that conflict in that way, and I very much doubt it'll be the last. We can never bring back those who fell in those terrible four years, but we can honour their bravery.

This war may have been over for a century now, but it will be remembered for a hundred years more and beyond. Because it and those who fought in it deserve to be remembered.

Not all of them. Sci-Twi was good, as was Gloriosa Daisy. And hey, Discord was redeemed a second time when season 4 ended, and I like him plenty.
