Author Interview » HapHazred's "Part-time Goddess (and the Church of Post)" [Royal Canterlot Library] · 12:34pm June 16th

We pray that you enjoy today's story as much as we did.


Part-time Goddess (and the Church of Post)
[Comedy] [Slice of Life] • 6,257 words

In this day and age, who has time to be a God? Prayers come in 24/7 and fancy dress is compulsory. Rainbow Dash certainly doesn't have time. She's got bills to pay and things to do. Besides, she isn't qualified for Godhood, surely.

The ponies who say her control of the weather is divine disagree, unfortunately. They've given her a funny spear and a robe that doesn't quite fit. They've got their own temple and they take church seriously.

And it turns out she's not the only pony recently undergone apotheosis...

A lone figure wrapped in furs lay flat, exhausted, at the world’s jagged edge.

She had done it. She had traversed numerous kingdoms and broken empires, fought immeasurable hordes, raised kings and humbled the proud, become a legend. She had seen things you people wouldn’t believe--attack ships off the shoulders of Orion, C-Beams glittering in the dark ‘round the Tannhauser Gate, the Walls of Morning and the Wailing Plains of Night. All these things, now so infinitesimally small with her final goal in sight. Just a few more stairs. Just… just a few more.

Author Interview » Bradel's "Three Nights" [Royal Canterlot Library] · 1:39pm June 9th

Today's story will bring a touch of warmth to any metaphorical winter.


Three Nights
[Drama] • 18,539 words

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.

FROM THE CURATORS: When Chris first reviewed this story several years ago, he wrote, "I was planning to suggest to the other Royal Canterlot Library guys that we feature it ... but when I went to write up the proposal, I realized the story was written by Bradel, who's part of the RCL, and ineligible for featuring."

Site Update » New BBCode Tags · 11:37pm June 8th

Hey guys,

One of the features in this new update was reader-side paragraph formatting. This helps improve consistency for readers across the site, especially for those of us who can’t stand reading indented text on a computer screen.

However, one thing that wasn’t accounted for was the legitimate need for specific indenting of passages and for certain blocks of text to have no paragraph formatting. Some examples would be lyrics and poetry.

Taking this into account, we have come up with a couple of new tags that remedy this situation which are documented below (copied directly from the bbcode guide)


[indent] Indent

The indent tag can be used to, unsurprisingly, indent portions of your text.

[indent]The indent tag can be used to, unsurprisingly, indent portions of your text.[/indent]

It also support levels of indenting

Site Post » Post-update · 11:48pm June 5th

Hey guys,

So, there were indeed a lot of issues with this update. There was such a vast amount of code change with this update that my testing didn’t catch some of the specific config issues that appeared especially with some slightly older iPads and such. I apologise for all of the woes. I appreciate that such times can be frustrating as a user who just wants to read some pony fics, but just know they are just as frustrating for us as developers who have poured months of work into these updates.
