Chapters (302)

Fluttershy had become Equestria's resident villain reformer. So, reforming a now powerless Sombra should be easy, right? Well, there's more to it than that. Take one magic-deprived unicorn, mix in some serious emotional baggage, and you get a disaster.

This road won't be easy to walk, but it's one she has to take. That much remains clear.

• Rarity develops an exciting new way for ponies to be socially dynamic, incorporating innovative and revolutionary ideas that should improve both communication and commerce – yet it quickly threatens to destroy the entire world. Cover art by Shivannie, whose exceptional work was rightfully featured on Equestria Daily's Drawfriend. She's also my beloved sister-in-crime and should be rightfully feared, just to be clear.

Chapters (1)

One year ago, there was an incident in the town of Modus. Many ponies got hurt; one pony was blamed. A pony who was different. A pony who never fit in. A pony whose entire life changed in the blink of an eye.

One year ago, Night Glider was exiled from Modus. Now, it’s time to go home.

Sometimes the words ring hollow.

Sometimes the ritual feels shallow.

Sometimes it's hard to tell if the gifts we are given are from the heart.

But sometimes, actions betray our feelings with a power that neither word nor ritual can capture.

A 90-minute Christmas vignette.

This story is a sequel to Ynanhluutr

Rainbow Dash endures many trials to reach the edge of the world.

Chapters (300)

Humans aren't nearly as robust as ponies. Simple gestures such as hugs, pats on the back, and hoof bumps are all well and fine when it's another pony on the receiving end. With a creature a fraction of their mass, ponies often forget how fragile others can be.

A man reflects on his fragility during a routine checkup, and realizes that he might not be the only one affected by simple actions one might take for granted.

An audio reading has been done by the illustrious Illya Leonov.

Chapters (1)

It's been quite the eventful day here in Equestria. Between weddings, engagements, foals being born and crowning ceremonies, everypony has been very busy. A lot has changed over the years. The girls all had their own dreams to follow so they didn't see each other too much for a while. This was in no fault of them not wanting to see each other, but that they simply had no time. Of course they did see each other from time to time and wrote each other everyday.

They weren't the only ones whose lives had changed. Almost everypony had something new going on in their lives. The royal family, Discord, Cadance and Shining Armor; everypony in Equestria had changed the last few years. Some things never changed though.

Friendships were still strong with everyone. Ponyville was still a bustling little town, great for raising a family. Canterlot was still the stunning capital it had always been. The Crystal Empire flourished under the rule of Cadance and Shining. In the grand scheme of things, everything was still the same happy place it had always been, with the same happy ponies young and old.

Not everything was great though. Dark forces had also increased over the years. Though they seemed to have died down, they were really just hiding, waiting for the right moment to attack.

Chapters (4)
