Chapters (1)

As certain ponies from another world can attest, there’s nothing quite like facing down a dark-winged madwoman’s fell magics to bring a group together. Of course, it wasn’t quite so cut and dry for the Crystal Prep Friendship Games team, not least because their Twilight Sparkle both was said madwoman and left them for greener pastures.

None of them can honestly blame her. Even putting aside all of Twilight’s bad memories at Crystal Prep and the better ones she made during the Games, there’s one argument that might sway even the most die-hard Shadowbolt: Canterlot High has more hotties in its student body than any of them can shake a stick at.

Especially the one who just walked into the diner where they’re having lunch.

So, ladies. Who has first dibs?

Rated T for teenagers being teenagers. Credit to Moproblems Moharmoney for several of the girls' stances on the matter.

Chapters (2)

Sunset Shimmer meant to visit another video game. Wild West games are always fun, right? But then things go wrong and Sunset's alter ego, Desert Mirage, becomes trapped in an entirely different world. This isn't a video game. The choices she makes matter. With a real chance of hurting somepony, Mirage decides to head home as quickly as possible. That'd be a lot easier if her way back hadn't been stolen. But Mirage has far more to worry about than mere card thieves.

The Bulletproof Heart is on the hunt.

A collaborative project with Wanderer D and a crossover of Bulletproof Heart, Gunsmoke, and Sunset's Isekai. This one's just for fun, folks!

Chapters (3)

Sunset Shimmer's life was good, she had plenty of friends and greatly enjoyed where she had eventually ended up in life. It's a shame then that reality had a different opinion on where she belonged. Now stuck in the past prior to first leaving for the human world, Sunset will have to figure out what kind of direction she wants to take in life this time around.

After all, the future she herself lived with her friends was not reachable without doing things that she now found appalling. Even so, she knows that staying in Equestria could very well doom the world to a much darker future. If she had time to draft a plan she could probably figure out something that would keep herself out of the way while also not affecting the timeline, it's a shame then that the two princesses of Canterlot would just not leave her alone!

Apparently this thing got feature mere days after publishing... somehow.

Chapters (4)

Sly Cooper is a master thief who has descended from a long line of other master thieves. His family has kept all their thieving secrets into one book simply known as, The Thievius Raccoonus. However, at the age of 8, Sly's home was ransacked by a horrible gang known as the Fiendish Five. The murdered Sly's family, and stole the Thievius Raccoonus, splitting the pages among themselves so that they themselves can overshadow the Cooper name as the greatest thieves. Sly was sent to an orphanage where he met Bentley and Murray, his lifelong friends and family. As Sly came of age, he began preparing and training to avenge his parents, steal back the Thievius Raccoonus, and bring down the Fiendish Five. As Sly stole his case record from the lovely inspector Carmelita Fox, he was shocked to discover that just a little over two years ago, all members of the Fiendish Five Mysteriously vanished without a trace. All of their last known sightings were at the Krakarov Volcano. In order to track them all down, that's where they are headed. After tracing the Fiendish Five's footsteps perfectly, they all find themselves in a strange new world, one that is dominated by one species, ponies. Sly and his gang soon learn that in this land's greatest treasure and weapon is stolen, the Elements of Harmony. Sly will need help from the inhabitants to get back the Thievius Raccoonus, while the group of Ponies he and his gang have befriended will need them to get back the Elements of Harmony.

Watching Applejack tend to the orchard, Rainbow Dash thinks stupid, sappy thoughts such as: maybe it wouldn't be so bad to become a tree.

My silly little entry for the Arboreal Yearnings Contest. :yay:

Chapters (1)

Story was almost cancelled, but then I realised that I still wanted to keep writing just a little further.
Just some forewarning though. This story is not for everyone. It is a slow-burn slice-of-life which lacks much serious threat. There is no big villain, and the storyline progresses quite slowly and you may get bored.
I am still new-ish to writing, so the writing quality (especially surrounding characters and dialogue) may leave something to be desired.

A story about someone with limited knowledge of the show, (basic facts on a small scale, no timeline stuff) wakes up as an alicorn (early-teen) in Canterlot. He is not happy about this fact.

General info:
No, they do not have OP alicorn powers. Yes, they are sort-of a foal, but not of baby age and this will not affect their personality or emotional-capacity in any way.
Gender swapping? No, I asked in the comments, people want a male alicorn.
Will this impact my other story (Clouds)? Probably, depends on if people want me to continue it or not.

Tags will be updated with story.

Chapters (12)

All fades away in the end. The past slips through your fingers like air, leaving nothing behind. Even the stars, one day, will die.

Twilight wants to know why, but the universe is not so generous with its secrets.
