David had a decent run of things in Equestria for a while now... A house, decent job doing silly little precision tasks that took the average pony waaay longer to do in exchange for some bits... Semi-frequent home-invasions...

Waking up to his- very dead- phone blowing up, and a Princess knocking on his door, out of breath and desperate, he has to figure out exactly why she's shown up.

Or more accurately- why she's now chasing him. Preferably after he's booked it, and no longer feels a mortal fear from the sheer insanity that was on his phone.

Such is life for human David.


I had the inspiration to write this just by seeing the image (and wanting to make myself write more/post more) and originally it was going to be an Anon- but then I had a funny idea.
I gave myself Edgerunners PTSD. And I couldn't fit the joke in well. It was not worth it.
... At least I got more third person practice!
Therin lies the sunk cost fallacy, and my desire to write more third person.
Ah well, I had some fun with the banter, so worth!

Give Icey some love. Peak funny arts.
Obligatory Ko-fi beg.

Featured on release day, and got to 1st at that. (Also apparently featured on EQD-) Thanks to y'all for enjoying my silly horsewords, to this day. :raritywink:

The Great and Powerful Trixie grew up having it all: loving family, supportive friends, and an unbeatable magic show. That’s what she tells herself, at least.

There is a time in The Great and Powerful Trixie’s past that she would prefer to not remember. A time when she knew only one spell. A time when she lived in a backwater town. A time when she went by a different name…

The Canterlot Archives continues our look back on the Nobility Revolt of 503 with this excerpt from High Overseer Magic Flare's seminal work The Nobles’ Revolt, where he recorded his firsthoof account of the devastating attack and its lasting consequences on Equestria.

The excerpt chosen from this twenty-four chapter book is a poignant one, showing Princess Celestia's reaction to the discovery of Archmage Mana Spring's famed lost rune. One which, by all accounts, would have unleashed a magical revolution never before seen in our history, had he been able to complete it before the events of that harsh spring.

Eleven authors worked to create a story together, writing just one hundred words each — but all they had to work with were the one hundred words that were written by the person before them.

Presented to you now is the result of their combined endeavours... although, upon reading, it will quickly become apparent that the use of the 'Random' tag is well justified.

In fact, 'random' is probably an understatement.
