Depending on how many stories you expect to have here, you might need to move all those title cards into a table of contents chapter. There's a character limit for the synopsis, which I hit in my own shortfic anthology.

I don't know why, but these look oddly familiar. :raritywink: As I've enjoyed reading them, though, have a like anyway. :twilightsmile:


This is it, at least for Volume One.

I do intend to release any others I may write, but only once I've amassed enough to pass the next 1,000-word requirement. They're getting the next volume. In any case, seven stories are quite enough for any one volume to have (and seven months quite long enough to wait for that much!).


Methinks you must be mistaken, fellow user. :moustache:

:scootangel: Thanks! I've wanted to publish an anthology like this for a while; it simply required enough amassed words to be eligible for submission. Glad you enjoyed the fics!

Performers, always over-dramatizing things. :pinkiesmile:

Starlight is thinking about this in the wrong way. What Trixie does is far more mndane than what Starlight expects.

It seems there is a reason that food gifts are left for the ancestors. The living should of course have more priority than the dead.

That was a nice twist at the end.

This is a nice interaction between Discord and Pinkie.

This was very awesome to read. I enjoyed every single story that was in this fic.


Wow, thank you very much! Always a pleasure to see that my older stories still entertain people. :scootangel:
