Princess Luna has made a choice. When it seems that ponies shun her a dream draws her to the east. So she has left. She left behind everything. Her sister, Her title, Her old life. all this in search of a dream that resonates with her. The Moon rises and a new era is on it's way for better or for worse when 1000 years pass things may have changed a lot.
It's not always that a whiny, attention-seeking and prissy stallion takes the place of Celestia. For starters, he can't even brush his own mane. So if he can't take control of his looks without a maid to help him, that only begs the question. How will he take control of an empire?
He won't, is the answer.
It was a just a common, ordinary spell, one that unicorns use every day. All it took was a split second. Now stuck in a place that's in between, Twilight must figure out how to get out... before it's too late.
Beware ye that enter searching for another Blink sequel. This is not a Blink-verse story. I repeat, NOT related to ocalhoun's Blink. Just saying this because the description will put some people off. I know it will. I know it.
The year is 1890, and Equestria is benefiting from an economic and scientific advancement that has given them the power of steam and turned the once poor nation into a global powerhouse. Such growth has given Equestrians plenty, but where there is life, there is crime. Some crime, however, is not meant for the authorities to handle and that where Private Eye Pinkamena Diane Pie and her trusty, reluctant, and uptight kind-of-best buddy Twilight Sparkle come in.
The pay is good (and tax free), the days are fun, and adventure is always one note away. But one particular job lands them in hot water when the target they helped arrest not only somehow survives an execution, but has also devoted his time into picking off carefully selected ponies using deadly games... and the two just might be on his hit list.
Pinkie and Twilight must now survive the games, save those on the list, and stop the maniac before he ends them and completes his plan. All while dealing with the new Ponyville Police Anti-Corruption Task Force and Pinkie's unhealthy obsession with getting a coltfriend.
"On the longest day of the thousandth year, the Stars will aid her escape"
That's the warning Twilight Sparkle read learned of Nightmare Moon coming back. But when she confronts her at Town Hall, Nightmare Moon kidnaps her instead.
Spike and a group of mismatched ponies make their way through the Everfree Forest, hoping to defeat Nightmare moon and save Twilight!
Alternate universe where Twilight is kidnapped by Nightmare Moon and a different group of six becomes the Elements of Harmony.
Rated T for children swearing and a few darker scenes.
This story is a sequel to Tricks Of The Trade Show
In many ways, Rarity is still trying to settle back into Ponyville life. Her first moons after dropping out of boarding school have been hectic: preparing for that now-passed first trade show, opening the Boutique. She's been completely out of the gossip circuit and doesn't know what she missed for events, scandal -- and new arrivals. She and Pinkie have spent years with neither knowing the other existed.
As if that was going to last.
