    Twilight Sparkle's imagination as a child was unbelievable, probably due to all those books. Which also make up the amazing Fort Book, Twilightopia's first stronghold against the country of Armor! With the help of Captain Smartypants and Private Cadence, General Twilight defends her fort against her brother's advancing army of one!

    A tale of Twi's childhood told from her point of view.

    Inspired by the cover picture.

    Prince Blueblood thought the Grand Galloping Gala was over. He thought he could just go to sleep and put it behind him. He never expected to be reliving the same disaster of a day, over and over... and over.

    Thanks to all the people who wrote the page and all the people who gave me a little wakeup call and comment to become aware of that fact! You can't see it, but you guys put a real smile on my face tonight.

    Also, recently, extra thanks to RD Dash for giving TBNE a thorough editing. I've updated the fic accordingly (7.11.12)

    Idol Hooves holds a special place in Equestria.  He's probably the only exiled changeling to serve in the Royal Guard, or at least, that's what he expects, as exiles don't really broadcast that fact.  However, it's well known that Princess Celestia loves all of her little ponies, and her guards perhaps more so, and that makes it one of the best ways for a changeling to discreetly feed.

    But how does a changeling even get there, let alone get exiled in the first place?  For that matter, why would it ever go to Canterlot in the first place?  Set a number of years before the series proper, before Luna’s redemption, Idol details how he was exiled, the ponies he’s met, and the series of misadventures that led him to joining the Royal Guard, and should continue a good ways into the series, as something of an alternate perspective.

    Soon, he’ll have to deal with a boisterous new princess to serve and a royal wedding in the works bringing a third to power.  Will his old instincts bring this new life crashing down around him?  What precipitates Chrysalis’s ill-fated assault on Canterlot?  Is it really so wrong for a changeling to enjoy good craftsmanship to an obsessive degree?  

    New cover art provided by the fantastic Carnifex

    And a TVTropes page here.

    And an Ask Blog of questionable canonity!

    Princess Luna attempts to overthrow her sister's rule... with pillows.

    Celestia is highly amused.

    Props to the artist!

    It's even got an awesome reading on YouTube!

    You'd think that being trapped in stone would mean that, if nothing else, I could get some peace and quiet. Unfortunately, it seems that Celestia has other ideas.

    She has appointed these ponies... these 'Keepers', as she calls them, to keep me entertained during my incarceration.

    Honestly? I'd prefer the boredom.
