Rainbow Dash didn’t know she’d be on the precipice of the biggest change in her life when she nonchalantly agreed to help Pinkie Pie. Throw a party, make a lot of foals happy, go home. That was the plan.

So…why does she keep going back? Why does home…feel so empty?

Unable to shake the one foal that refuses to leave her head, Rainbow Dash is ready to jump into the greatest change—and greatest challenge—of her life.

And that, my friends, is only the beginning.

Chapters (25)

No one alive today can say where she came from; simply that she has always been there.

And yet, few ponies have had a greater impact on Princess Celestia's life than Raven, her most faithful aide.

Inspired by and based off of a headcanon put forth by Heir-of-Rick, though perhaps a bit less insidious than what he had in mind. He very kindly provided an alternate version of his image for me to use as my cover image! Text added by me.

All comments and criticism very welcome!

Megan Richards is a normal, everyday wife and published author of 'My Little Horsey'... however the tales she writes about aren't fiction, but stories from her past. She thought she put the world of ponies behind her, but sometimes the past has a habit of catching up with you...

G1 meets G4 in a hopefully epic tale of the past, the present and the future.

I own nothing, also, minor cameos from other Hasbro properties such as Jem and the Holograms, Transformers G1 and GI Joe.

Chapters (1)

Every Friday, from five in the afternoon to eleven at night, Pinkie Pie does volunteer work. She doesn't have to do it, the world won't stop if she doesn't, but she chooses to do it anyway. Even if it's doing seemingly insignificant little things.

It is a matter of life and death, after all. Literally.

Chapters (1)

Shortly after the Battle of the Bands, a new student arrives at Canterlot High School. Nobody knows her and she's not in a mood to make any friends. On any other school, she'd end up as a loner, but Canterlot High School isn't normal.
Of course, shenanigans are inevitable. Friendship, feelings and magic, whether she likes it or not.

Another EQG self-insert that starts right after "Rainbow Rocks" and moves forward from there. Since the events from the movies and mini-series won't all be included, I'm giving this the AU tag, just in case.
Tagged as "Teen" mostly because of foul language.
"Violence" and "Suicide" only happen in the later chapters, I will give a warning at the beginning of those.

This story is dedicated to a friend I haven't heard of in almost half a year now. I met her while I was in therapy for depression. She wasn't into MLP at all, but we bonded over music we both liked and I showed her some of the stuff I've written before. We even watched a few EQG videos and even if she wasn't ever "into" all this stuff, she felt pretty strongly when I showed her some Anon-A-Miss fics.
Turns out we both had out problems growing up and going to school.

We started talking, making up stories and I wrote some of them down. I made the suggestions to place them into the EGQ world, and Ocean Blues was born.

That was more than a year ago. We kept in touch, even after therapy, thanks to the internet, and we kept writing this "thing" together. Until, almost half a year ago, contact suddenly broke down. Her social media still exists, but there's no reaction. Her phone number won't connect any more. I have no idea what happened to her, and with all that corona and world wide crisis going on, it scares me. I know people sometimes just move on. I know people stop using their social media or change their phone numbers all the time. It still scares me.

So I've decided to publish this. It's not all finished and there will be gaps in the story line, although I've been trying to fill some of them on my own. This story was originally written in German, so the translation might sound weird at some points, please bear with me.
Maybe I will never finish this, but at least I want to post all I have from our work so far. To get it off my chest, and maybe so someone else might find it and get something out of it, even if it's just a chuckle.

Chapters (28)

Starlight Glimmer has gone back in time. Each time Twilight tries to stop Starlight, she fails and is flung back through the portal and into a broken, twisted Equestria, ravaged by wars or monsters, each version worse than the one before, barreling toward the destruction of the world. Until she lands in a version of Equestria that ... isn't worse. It seems unchanged, happy, normal. The only real difference she can find on the cutie map is that her castle isn't there ...

... but the library still is.

Chapters (2)

By some cosmic happenstance, a young woman is transported to Equestria, and finds herself in a precarious situation. She's taking it in stride so far. Maybe because finding herself in an alien world and in an alien body is not the worst thing that's ever happened to her.

Some wounds, especially those of the soul, can take a long time to mend. What healing arts can the ponies of Equestria offer a scarred young woman? What can she offer them in return?

Timeline-wise takes place starts off in the later parts of season 4 but before the season finale. It also mentions events from the EG-movies and the comics, but neither of which are required watching/reading in order to understand this story.
