  • Gold Stories 18 stories A story with both high meaning and impact. A story whose themes resonate with me deeply, whose observations carried great meaning in my life, and whose flaws do not drag these down. My personal best of the best.

  • Navy Stories 119 stories A story with solid meaning and solid impact. While they don’t reach for the heavens often these stories have charm and heart all on their own, and they stick with you, having brought you joy, sadness, or reflection.

  • Red Stories 90 stories A story which was meaningful and impactful, but only in the short term. Its charm fades over time. Breezier stories which while amusing or touching in the moment, move on with the wind.

  • Light Blue Stories 63 stories Short-fics, more or less. Stories which capture a moment or emotion but due to their length can’t expand on their content, but still offer meaning and value nonetheless.

Everypony enjoys myths and ponytales, even if they know such things aren't real. Alicorns fighting against a spirit of chaos? An ancient princess trapped in a library under a tree, waiting to be found? Quite enchanting and fantastic tales yes, but nonetheless as fictional as Daring Do and other such stories. At least, that's what Rarity used to think.

She doesn't anymore.

Dedicated to Annuska for being as amazing a writer as she is a friend.

Now a physical book!!!
Based on an old oneshot.

Chapters (46)

Many years after sending her beloved protege to Ponyville, unease sits heavily on Princess Celestia's heart as her relationship with Twilight Sparkle seems to have cooled despite all they've accomplished together. On the advice of her sister, Celestia sets out to investigate and resolve the lost connection with her most faithful student. What does it mean to be a Faithful Student...or a Princess of the Sun?

Earned a six-star rating on Equestria Daily and featured on its very own TVTropes page!.

Chapters (11)

When Celestia went on sabbatical into the west, she promised Twilight it would be only a couple of months. A year and a half later, the sun resists control, the country is in ruins, and her teacher is lost in the wilds. Twilight has become the apostate, her faith in her teacher and her teachings waning. In the wake of tragedy, her resentment blossoms into fury and she vows that something must be done. Shadows gather around Canterlot, and old things that should not have been awakened are on the move. The Student goes west, her hope restored by friendship and righteous fury.

The night, at long last, is passing.

Chapters (53)

Being an alicorn is wonderful... except when it isn't. There are plenty of things that put a damper on limitless vistas of possibility afforded by such a long life: Court, mortal needs and expectations, the occasional decade of ennui.

And the dreams, of course. Agelessness comes with its own special kind of dreaming. Celestia finds that her own "Inner Court" is a bit too literal, and it--and she--are troubled at the prospect of a near-immortal Twilight Sparkle.

If only she could articulate exactly why that was.

Part of the Monophysite Quartet, which also includes Celestia Isn't Real, Have You Considered My Servant, Twilight?, and The Esoteric Rites of Darkness. All four stories have a common origin point in an old story idea I called "Monophysite" and touch on who or what Celestia really is in some way. They are otherwise unrelated.

Chapters (16)

Hearth's Warming Eve is supposed to be a happy event—Cadance knows this, but all she ever feels is lonely. Now, with Shining Armor gone and a freak snowstorm battering her kingdom, it's up to Cadance to salvage the holiday and teach her crystal ponies to care for one another.

A story about finding your family, on the coldest night of the year.

Chapters (5)

When the Cutie Mark Crusaders dig up an ancient magical artifact, they unleash a spell on the town that allows everypony to see a "lie meter" floating above each other's heads. While attempting to solve the mystery, Twilight Sparkle has to analyze the tenuous balance between friendship and honesty. She doesn't like what she finds.

Chapters (5)

Ever since the Twilight Time incident, Twilight has wondered why the foals in Ponyville would be hesitant to approach her without an introduction, and learning that she is apparently the most popular princess from Sassy Saddles - despite not having seen evidence of it herself - only served to reinforce her concern that ponies were avoiding her due to her status. Her suspicions are confirmed when she attends a royal function and notices guests getting nervous as she draws near.

Twilight decides this needs to be addressed. Wacky hijinks ensue.

(Inspired by Appellation Mountains and Twilight Verbs Article Nouns. The concept could almost be considered a mashup of the two.)

Now with added sequelitis! Librarian Twilight's Plan Gets Bodychecked By Rainbow Dash

Reading the full description of the story, and realizing the author may one day update their fics, fills you with TWILIGHT SPARKLE

Chapters (7)

Throughout her life, Twilight Sparkle has learned many things.

Love and friendship are two sides of a coin.

Being alone can be the worst feeling ever.

And whenever she falls, Rainbow Dash will be there to pick her up.

Based on the song by Molly's Yes. Cover image by SoulSpade, colored by Felynea. Written for Surry's Eggcellent Egghead Competition. Please be sure to read the introduction.

Chapters (16)

Cloud Kicker might just have the wildest life of any pony in Equestria. Marvel at the insanity that is her life, and laugh at the suffering of her poor beleaguered best friend, Blossomforth. And maybe, just maybe, there's more to her than just the lovable sex maniac everypony thinks she is.

This is a semi-sequel to "The Incredibly Dense Mind of Rainbow Dash." Not really a proper sequel, since it's focused on Cloud Kicker and Blossomforth instead of Rainbow and Pinkie, but it's in the same continuity. So I guess that makes it a follow-up-side-quel story. Or something. You don't need to have read "The Incredibly Dense Mind of Rainbow Dash" to read or enjoy this, but you ought to read it anyway, just because.

The central story of the Winningverse.

We got a tag for Cloud Kicker, but Blossomforth still deserves one too.

Chapters (28)

This story is a sequel to Off The Edge Of The Map

When Twilight is sent with Luna on a diplomatic mission to Draconia, they quickly find themselves somewhere that doesn't appear on any map, and Luna is lost in more than one way...
