    Derpy Hooves. Loveable goofball, caring mother, dedicated mailpony.

    Of course, few ponies know what she really does for a living.

    You'd think that being trapped in stone would mean that, if nothing else, I could get some peace and quiet. Unfortunately, it seems that Celestia has other ideas.

    She has appointed these ponies... these 'Keepers', as she calls them, to keep me entertained during my incarceration.

    Honestly? I'd prefer the boredom.

    When Rarity is overwhelmed with making designs for an agriculture exhibition, she turns to Applejack for advice. But when she gives Applejack a hair style treatment in return, the apple farmer lets her accent slip from southern drawl to sophisticated Manehattenite. The result? More fancy parties than you can shake a candy apple at!

    When Gaberdine is awarded a noble title by Princess Celestia, he soon finds out that his new lands contain several surprises.  For starters, there is no land in his new barony.  Secondly, his new castle turns out to be a broken-down riverboat.  And third is… seaponies.

    Baron Gaberdine has a lot to learn about his new barony.  And himself.

    Fortunately, he has a very young teacher.

    Now with a sea-quill (sorry) Drifting Down the Lazy River

    Celestia had a problem.  Somepony wrote a novel about Nightmare Moon's rebellion.  This made Luna quite unhappy, and unfortunately for her sister, Luna has not yet gotten the hang of modern traditions like freedom of speech, the abolition of the death penalty, and not bothering Princess Celestia when she's trying to sleep.

    Fortunately, Celestia also had a faithful student, one who is now a Princess with an ill-defined portfolio and perfectly capable of dispensing justice by the laws of both today and one thousand years ago.

    Now Twilight Sparkle has a problem.

    How would a being like Discord want to be remembered after he's gone? Well, if you're curious, he did actually write a will. To the surprise of nobody, its contents are bizarre and mildly disturbing.


    Now with audio readings by CaptainBron3y,  NDLMongoose, and Griffin Productions.

    In an effort to keep her mind occupied, Twilight Sparkle decides to delve once again into the grand mysteries of Pinkie Pie. This time, Twilight's focus is on her claims of growing up on a rock farm: like so many things related to Pinkie Pie, the idea that somepony could grow rocks as an agricultural product makes absolutely no sense. However, the investigation eventually leads Twilight to a rather... surprising discovery.

    This is the first story in The Petriculture Cycle.

    When five foals asked Princess Twilight Sparkle to please try and paint the moon purple during Nightmare Night, she initially refused. It wasn't until they insisted (and Princess Luna quite basically dared her) that she relented. She only relented, however, because she really thought she wouldn't be able to do it.

    Too bad she thought wrong.


    A very silly story that started as a prompt that got way, way, way out of hand.
