Princess Twilight Sparkle has been faced with a difficult decision. Unsure of what to do, she seeks advice from her old mentor, Celestia. The ex-ruler of Equestria may not have an answer for her, but she does have a story. A story about guilt. A story about the greater good.

A story about the day after the worst day of her life.

Chapters (1)

A snapshot of old times when Sunny, still a bubbly little filly, manages to pry Argyle away from his work for awhile. A fond memory of unwavering fatherly love.

Chapters (1)

Nothing is more powerful than a mothers love. Primal instinct to care for ones offspring is one of the most common sights throughout nature. As is such, Ditzy Doo loves her daughter Dinky more than anything else in Equestria. To see them together is to see the true definition of family. But everypony has secrets. Dinky will soon reach the age of curiosity, and there is one question her mother can never answer honestly: Who is her father?

Ditzy can never tell her the truth. Not to deliberately withhold the information and leave her in the dark, but simply to protect her from the horrors of the past.

My first attempt at a one-shot, written and edited within a 1 hour time limit.

Important Note:
The subject matter of this story is Rape and the after effects resulting from it.
Despite this grim subject, it contains no scenes of a sexual nature.

Chapters (1)

This story is a sequel to Triptych

The war touched everypony, even those far from the fighting. Compass Rose was affected more than most when gryphons appeared far behind the front lines, and the aftermath left her unwillingly in the company of an enemy soldier.

Set in the same universe as Off The Edge Of The Map, Apotheosis, and Triptych.

Editing by Kaorin.

Chapters (1)

This is the story of a very ordinary pony's extraordinary day. Carrot Top and Derpy are good friends indeed, and sometimes friendship can lead to wonderful surprises. It can also lead to arguments, frustration, and general grumpiness, of course, and this story has all of those things as well. But mostly, this is a story about the day Carrot Top learned how to fly.

Chapters (1)

With Hearth's Warming approaching, Applejack takes a moment to chat up a fellow vendor at the Ponyville market, and find what she thinks is a pony in need of a friend. But the holidays mean different things for different ponies, and some don't necessarily celebrate Hearth's Warming as Applejack does.

But it may be that there's still a way she can brighten up their holidays.

Chapters (1)

For thousands of years, the moon has waged endless war on innocent beaches. Every day the tides wash away countless sand castles, crushing the dreams of foals all across Equestria. Somepony needs to stop the moon's heinous crimes—and, at last, it looks like somepony will.

After her sand palace is washed away by the ocean, Dinky Hooves takes it upon herself to do something that should have been done centuries ago: destroy the moon.
