NEW PRINCESS ATTACKS GRIFFONSTAN IMPORTS
The Manehattan Tribune can exclusively report that newly crowned Princess Twilight Sparkle became embroiled in an argument with the Griffonstani trade minister about the inferior quality of griffon quills, alleging that "they just don't hold ink as well as pegasus quills". Import markets tumbled overnight, threatening the solvency of numerous Equestrian quill merchants. Princess Sparkle could not be reached for comment.
Twilight Sparkle wakes up to an unexpected thought, and now she just wants it to go away. The idea is embarrassing enough: an erotic liaison between herself and Princess Luna. But Twilight's problem runs deeper. She can't ignore this idea, however much she tries. She decides to write it out as a story, to clear the thing from her mind. Now she needs to finish her story quickly – because if she falls asleep before it's done, the Princess of Dreams will get to see that idea for herself.
Living quietly in the Manehatten country is a little-known painter...who sees other ponies' dreams. Most of them are a little risqué. A few of them are utterly horrifying. And the only way she keeps herself sane is to paint them.
See them the way Reverie Dreamflight does...through the view from the window.
A series of shorter stories aimed at exploring the potential unmasked thoughts and desires of some of our favorite pastel equines...for better or worse.
A collection of short stories. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. All, hopefully, about what it means to be human.
