Life has always been mellow and quiet in Equestria. Not so much as one smile has ever been seen. In the midst of this lack of chaos, seven metalhead friends are constantly together. They always talk about life, dreaming of a better place filled with laughter and fun. Little do they know, that place may be closer than they think.

There exist creatures of evil and bloodlust that stalk Equestria in the night, trapping those unfortunate enough to become their prey. Protecting the kingdom is Luna, now the only remaining ruler of Equestria. She has entire armies at her disposal, yet they pale in comparison to her greatest weapon: Nightmare Moon, a powerful creature bound to serve her for eternity.

To deal with these dark threats, Luna has the assistance of not only her loyal servant, but the famed Pegascariot, and her mysterious butler who wields a powerful magic able to slice a pony apart.

But things may become even too large for her, when gruesome attacks begin to rapidly spread through the kingdom, faster than she’s ever seen. Unfortunately, the cause may be more terrifying than anyone expected. An ancient creature has been hiding in secret after his supposed destruction, plotting to throw all of Equestria into war….

Kitsune - Mythical fox spirits that are able to use magic and are often known for causing mischief. Unlike normal foxes, Kitsune has multiple tails. They start with one, but as they grow older, stronger and wiser, they earn more tails. The oldest, strongest and wisest are the nine-tailed kitsune...

When a small group of these strange creatures appear in Equestria, there can only be so many ways this could end. Led by a fox with seven tails, the skulk escapes to Equestria for a new home after they've lost their previous one. This is their story...

Thanks to the talented TP Night for the editing, proofreading, and overall help with the story.

Note: Although there is an adventure tag, there will be some slice of life moments throughout the story as well.

This is a very serious, and sensitive subject, everypony, so if you're deeply affected by things like this, then, don't read this story.

When I had originally written this, I wrote the letter part first, which was just the Letter part without all the extra added stuff. It began at 'Dear Princess Celestia', and ended with 'Sincerely, Six String'. I had titled it "First Last And Only Letter", and wrote it when I was in a very dark place in my life , mentally, and emotionally, and had actually considered taking my own life. Thankfully, I was able to get through the hardship with the help of some very  a good friends of mine, though I did end up having to respond to comments, messages, and e-mails from worried people, who were greatly concerned for my health, safety, and well being. I told them that I was fine now, and wrote a somewhat happy conclusion for the letter called  "Things Could Always Be A lot Worse Than They Are" to alleviate their fears as to whether I was still going to kill myself, or not.

I've published them here as one complete story, but they can be read in their original forms on both my SoFurry.com page, and on my DeviantArt page

In conclusion, everypony, if you are having thoughts of harming yourself, please, please PLEASE talk to somepony, whether it be a family member, a friend, or a licensed mental health specialist, because as Applejack says in this story "We can't afford ta lose ya.", and to borrow a line from Discord, even though it turns my stomach, "Things could always be a lot worse than they are."

Meet Rarity. Fashionista. Element of generosity. Owner of a succesful business. 273 years old vampony.

...I beg your pardon?

When one has been alive that long, one gains a lot of experience and learn some valuable lessons. How to stay alive, how to separate chiffon and georgette and how to get your crush to notice you.

Ok, perhaps not the last one. Apparently Twilight Sparkle don't get subtle hints. But then, when you are a supernatural being with some rather enthralling powers and opportunity knocks...

Really, darling, it's not like some good, old-fashioned mind-control could hurt someone! Right?

Right.

Written for Monochromatic's Raritwi contest. Dark tag for... dark stuff.

The sheer might of both titanic forces battling one another had repercussions upon the environment and not a single eye nor ear could have detected it. When Tirek finally fell to the magic of friendship, a tear in the fabric of space ripped open as the unstable space around the war zone gave way no longer able to hold itself together. Unbeknownst to the ponies of Equis, there would be no happy future for them when a mysterious obsidian flying rock jets over Ponyville with fire spewing forth from its beak. Another similar object erupts into a brilliant explosion that evaporates, leaving the attacker a head drive straight into the Everfree.

In full view of the Mane 6 and Discord, something bad has transpired and more lay ahead for the peaceful world of the equines.  Many of the ponies called the thing, the Black Hawk, with its avian form and speed which barely an eye could catch. Where fun and joy should be had, now the citizens and the princesses worry over what came through a portal fabricated by the magic battle between good and evil The situation has only just begun to dive...
