      The Enchanted Kingdom

      It’s easy to think about fairytales when you’re an ancient alicorn trapped in a library for centuries on end. It’s easy to wonder how one would go about rescuing you, to think and devise and plot out how to free you in a blaze of glory, intrigue, adventure, and romance. Or, rather, it’s easy until suddenly it happens and you’re forced to ask yourself the one terrifying question you’d yet to consider. Now what?

      The Meeting Outside Ponyville

      A crisp wind chilled Twilight Sparkle, her wings rustling at her side. Truthfully, she would have liked this meeting to happen inside Carousel Boutique, where she would be warm, but fitting a dragon inside there was, well, impossible.  So, there they all were instead—they being herself, Princess Luna and Cadance, Pinkie, Applejack, as well as Spike and Rainbow—all gathered in a prairie on the outskirts of Ponyville. Rarity had stayed back in the boutique to work, under the promise Twilight…

      The First Date

      Rarity appreciated everypony.  She did. Really. Except for right now. Right now, she really didn’t appreciate the gang of loud, rowdy princesses and ponies parading in and out her house as though it were some sort of circus.  She had a dress to make. Several dresses, in fact, because she had a business to kick back into gear, so she’d overcommitted herself, but it was fine, because she’d surely get them done in time if she was just allowed a few hours of…

      Frostfire Arrow

      Sapphire Eyes
      His breathing was still heavy, even though it had been at least five minutes since they’d finished. This didn’t surprise the slender twenty year old lying in bed next to him, her long black hair a ruffled mess. She was good at what she did. Even though she’d been distracted the entire time, even though her thoughts had been elsewhere—specifically, with Her—she’d still put on a rather fantastic show, accompanied by the… admittedly his not very appealing symphony of…

      Chapter 1

      “Hurry up, everypony! She's gonna leave us behind!” Three colts, two fillies, and one young dragon trotted down the dusty and dark halls of the old and dilapidated Castle of the Two Sisters, trying to keep up with their overly enthusiastic tour guide. It was easy to tell which of the foals had already taken the annual Nightmare Night tour before and which ones hadn’t judging by their proximity to the only two adults. The ones who had taken the tour several times already hung back, admiring the…

      Once In A Purple Moon

      When five foals asked Princess Twilight Sparkle to please try and paint the moon purple during Nightmare Night, she initially refused. It wasn’t until they insisted (and Princess Luna quite basically dared her) that she relented. She only relented, however, because she really thought she wouldn’t be able to do it. Too bad she thought wrong.

      The Musings of…

      Sitting by a hallway window in Canterlot Castle, Starswirl the Bearded watched life pass him by. Hearth’s Warming Eve was very different now than it was back then, before his thousand year long self-exile. A small celebration meant to honor the recent unification of pony races was now a kingdom-wide event where the holiday’s history did not matter quite as much as how many presents one received. “Quickly now! It’s already night-time! The feast won’t be ready!” cried a cook, rushing past…

      As Starswirl the Bearded ponders what stayed and what was forgotten on Hearth’s Warming Eve following his disappearance, he finds that his two pupils might have forgotten him.
