    This is a fic based on the Time Loop Files, the format of which was first codified by Innortal on fanfiction.net.

    Here's a brief guide.

    The basic idea is, one character (the Anchor, usually the main character of a fictional setting) is looping back to the very first moments of their parent series every time either they die or some kind of time limit expires. They of course end up monumentally stir crazy given enough time.

    Eventually others start to loop as well.

    The reset is not always perfect. Sometimes a loop's history will be different to the "prime" loop, or canonical plot.

    "Crossover" or "Fusion" loops also occur, randomly. These can involve the home loopers having a guest, or the anchor for one universe spending time in another, or replacements of one character by another.

    Vacation Loops are where the Anchor (or others) decide/s "buck it" and lets off steam by doing whatever comes to mind. There's little or no attempt to maintain the original timeline.

    In addition, and particularly more recently, it should be known that this story has a collaborative element to it - people may submit loop ideas or loops, ideally at the Spacebattles thread (a link to the current version of which is on the Trope page), and they may become included.

    There's two page image options, thanks to Filraen - the current page image has been edited by the original creator from this work of theirs.. The other one is here:

    This story is a sequel to Flying Sky-High

    So much has happened in the past year. Friends have been made, battles have been fought, and love has bloomed. Now at long last, Rainbow Dash has the chance of a lifetime: a chance to become a Wonderbolt and instantly be part of an elite squad. However, one of the key judges for the tryout is none other than her love: Soarin. He is bound by his profession to be fair and honest in his selection. Will their relationship give Dash an edge in the tryouts? Or will it strike her down before she even gets there?

    Also what of the dark magic within Soarin? He's kept quiet about it for a while, but not all is as well as he lets on.

    And what of the Shadowbolts? They scattered after the battle with Nightshade. Surely they didn't just disappear.

    A story of remaining strong in the face of harsh challenges. Life and love can be tough, but strong hearts always find a way to prevail.

    Edited by: Kestrel (and on occasion: Lucky424)

    This Fic's length is a bit intimidating, but it is broken into four parts, each of which could be considered their own stories with clear beginnings and conclusions. I decided to keep it all together because it was how my outline was structured (aka i completely underestimated the length).

    This is not a Gurren Lagann Crossover. The title was a coincidence. (But said coincidence has led to many references and characters that parody the anime)

    Featuring multiple chapter illustrations by: Scootafail/Chiwee, PenumbraGlow0290 Deviantart: darkmoonrising, Colorstrike, and foxenawolf

    I also like including pieces of fan art drawn by my readers if they drew certain scenes. So far i have included some fan art by: GlitterDash (Dev art: chessaw), Hopscotch, MyLittleXyo, Ice Blade, mlplover789, EchoSong, sweet Isolation, Pie Is Epic, melovedogs123, CowgirlVK, CrystalMelody_kc, Noble Savage (Deviant art: thatdamntenpin), Those Kids In The Corner, natis120, eveyannie, PhonicBoom, bambiki, Randompig212, Schemmer, SOARINDASH1, Neonspirit, NorthernLights8,  kikirdcz, Fuzzette and Cantil

    Adventure, mayhem, magic of unknown origins. Oh, and talking ponies. These are the strange events that have brought three friends together into the wildest holiday that anyone could imagine.

    It starts as a small Halloween chat, where they showcase their costume designs to one another. However, due to events outside of their control, they soon find themselves in a new land during a turbulent time.

    Now trapped in a case of mistaken identity, these friends find themselves thrown into the deep end, when a royal wedding they’re asked to assist with is suddenly interrupted, and the three of them soon find themselves on an extended holiday from any sense of reality they ever knew.

    We now have our own An Extended Holiday TVTropes Page:

    A big thank you to wille179 for setting it up.

    A/N: Now I would like you all to know first of all, this is a collaborative work between myself and some friends. So if you enjoyed this, why not stop by and say hello to the other three writers of this story. I have included their links at the bottom here.

    Meet Level Ledger, your average, well-read unicorn colt.  He has a talent with numbers and systems, which is why Pegasus Air was so interested in acquiring his talents.  They use him to make sure their books are balanced.  Both the legal ones...and the ones that'll never see the light of day.

    Meet Midnight Song, your not-average, well-trained Thestral mare.  Everything she sets out to do, she accomplishes with aplomb.  When she rises a little too quickly through the Day Guard's ranks, her superiors decide she needs to cool off and learn a bit about how to be a mature member of the Guard.  Not a bad idea, seeing as she's a massive flirt.

    When Level's rent goes up, he needs to take a roommate or risk being thrown out into the street.  A twist of fate will see these two souls coming together and having the time of their lives.

    Now, if only one of them could tell the truth to save their life...


    A collab fic worked on by myself and Ausbrony.  We liked the setting of Las Pegasus and the villains of Pegasus Air a lot, so we put our heads and characters together, and this came from our efforts.

    In lieu of a list of dates, I will simply say that this story tends to get featured every time I update it for a short while at least.  And I am very happy about that fact.~

    Monster attacks. Crime. Illegal hallucinogens made from electric fruit.

    They say things didn't use to be like this. They say things were different, before Luna came back 60 years ago, but Detective Hard "Hardy" Boiled of the Detrot Police Department has never known any world other than that demarcated by the seedy streets of his beloved decaying metropolis; a world in which the coroners sing and dance, surveillance bugs have personality disorders, and the Chief of Police is a scarier entity than most of the eldritch things the city attracts.

    The grey unicorn who turned up dead outside the posh High Step Hotel seemed like just another case, but her missing horn is the pointy tip of a very large and nasty iceberg. It's up to Hardy and his friends - a rejected monster hunter, a psychic cab driver, and an underground antiques heir - to find out what’s going on in an investigation that promises to stick more than a cupcake into the very eye of Detrot.

    Especially if Hardy has anything to say about it.

    This story is a sequel to Memory Pending

    The story of Moon Mender continues after his dream of an ending ceases.  He continues his struggle to belong in a world so far divorced from the only other experience he can remember, but as an outsider of truly alien mindset, will he ever be able to find a place in Equestria?  More importantly, will the life he left behind give up on its death grip so easily?  The most important thing to remember is that things are rarely as they seem and sometimes, some things are better off forgotten.

    This story is a direct sequel to Memory Pending.  Without having read that, this story might be a little strange to most, which is frightening considering how strange it is already.  It can be read as a standalone story of course, but you won't get the most out of it.

    Further, I’m fully aware that not everypony enjoys more mature themes, so any scenes containing things of an M rated nature shall only be released in a separate story when the time comes.  This story deals with more mature themes on a whole, as a warning.  This version will do its best to censor the really sensual or graphic content out, of course.

    Last but not least, this story has reached this final format through combined efforts of not just myself, but many a helpful pony along the way!  Here’s an abbreviated list of those involved and the rolls they played:

    Kiroberos – Author (Obviously)

    Julia – Editor (Corrections, Grammar, and Flow)

    Azu – Beta Reader (Corrections, Flow) (Until Chapter 35)

    ExplosiveBrohoof – Beta Reader (Grammar) (Until Chapter 22)

    Muffinking – Beta Reader (Corrections, Grammar) (Until Chapter 22)

    All of my readers for being amazing, supportive, and best of all, enjoying the world we read and write about.
