It's Sisterhooves Social time again. This year, Dash catches wind of two new competitors and gets Spike to bet on the race. When her team is revealed to be a rather famous set of siblings, it looks like poor Spike will be her slave for a week! However, due to a team of masseurs, a minor invasion, unfortunate addictions, and dubious barrel components, victory might not be as near as she thinks...
Have Spike take the C.M.C.'s on a tour of Canterlot so that they don't interrupt Braeburn's ceremony? It was such a simple solution, but even the best laid plans can go awry. Now, Luna and Applejack must contend with some unfinished business from the princess's past as Twilight deals with the fears and concerns of two little fillies... and two little dragons.
Gathered here are a series of short Pony stories for your enjoyment, pondering, bemusement, and mortification.
As a Mother (Sad) - Celestia informs a curious visitor of a time she revealed her heart's desire.
The Singular Constant (Slice of Life)(Random) - Twilight and Spike's surrealist exploration of their relationship.
A Hard Day (Slice of Life)(Sad) - Carrot Cake and Cup Cake deal with the first day without children in their home.
Apples to Apples (Slice of Life)(Shipping) - Applejack tells us all about apples! And, well... Apples.
If You Give a Changeling a Cupcake (Comedy) - Carrot Cake chases a changeling around Sugar Cube CornerÃ�Â with a golf club. Based on a series of children's books.

By Shades (Slice of Life) - Celestia awaits the return of a loved one... and finds out why she arrived where she did.
"Her parents hadn’t come close to telling us what had happened. As I read her newest letter I couldn't believe what she was telling me. This kid hadn’t 'had an accident'… this kid, damn, this kid had been buckin' broken... she’d been broken…"

As the Cakes make a very special gingerbread house the act reminds them of their lives together; hinting at those they loved, challenges they faced, and the struggles that continue even after lovers say "I do"...

When they began to read the ancient book Twilight and Spike only had the slightest of ideas what it could possibly be about. As the illuminated inks revealed to them an image of Princess Celestia locked in combat with a massive dragon and his sons they realized that the song written upon the aged pages was telling of a long forgotten battle...
... and that the Celestia they know and love is capable of things they dare not imagine.
