A year after Nyx's first Hearth's Warming, she and her adoptive mother Twilight Sparkle are back in Canterlot to visit Twilight's parents... and, as Nyx learns, to take a tour of Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns on the teacher's workday after school has let out for the holiday.

Unfortunately for Nyx, not all the faculty is as good at teaching as Princess Celestia... or, for that matter, as good at not being a pest.

And why does Superintendent Spell Nexus, the pony who created Nyx with forbidden magic, keep turning up? (Well, besides the fact that he runs the school.)

An unofficial story in the Past Sins universe, set a year after Winter Bells. Written for Brony-wan Kenobi for the 2022 Jinglemas story exchange.

Private Night Light of the EUP Royal Guard (Canterlot City Patrol) is working his way through accounting school by polishing armor and making sure nobody steals any buildings. And then a hyper-confident, fearless unicorn about his age shows up at his barracks, talking about a conspiracy to steal an artifact from the Canterlot Museum of Antiquities.

What follows is a series of high places, tight spaces, double-crosses, and discussions of the vital role of accounting in public life.... all taking place over twenty years before six particular ponies began saving the world on a regular basis.

While Twilight Sparkle and her friends are off saving the day, Starlight Glimmer is at home in the Castle of Friendship taking care of a bunch of ponies driven from their homes.

Including several farmers.

And, because this is Equestria, their livestock as well.

To be fair, they're considerate house guests...

... all but one.

This story is a sequel to Changeling Space Program


Twilight Sparkle's memorable coronation is over. But before she gets tied to the throne, she decides to share one last adventure with her mentor and her closest friends.

Not a huge adventure. Just a little day-trip, really.

Back to the moon.

A brief sequel to Changeling Space Program and The Maretian, written for the A Thousand Words contest. (Fluff category.)

The invasion is going well- not perfectly, as humanity isn't willing to go into slavery without a fight- but the odds remain firmly in the invaders' favor.

After all, to any star-spanning race, humans are just natives. No space fleets, no lasers, no antigravity, nothing. They might as well fight with bows and arrows.

And then the aliens find out that humanity does have one ally- the ponies.

The silly, fluffy, obsessed-with-friendship, and above all pacifist ponies.

The aliens are laughing.

The aliens haven't faced the ponies in combat yet.

"The stars shall aid in her escape," it said.

It never said anything about a space bridge.

Megatron and his elite warriors had expected to teleport from the Oregon desert to Earth's moon. Instead they found themselves in pony bodies, stripped of most of their power, and forced to learn how to live like other organic life forms.

But Megatron has a plan. He will bide his time, learning about this new world and its new potential while his underlings try to find a way back to their home universe. If he can figure out a way to overthrow Celestia and conquer this land of ponies before then, so much the better.

This, of course, requires that his subordinates not act like idiots... and while he can count on Soundwave and Ravage, the same can't be said of Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Thundercracker or Skywarp.

And especially not Starscream.

A series of slice-of-life stories (with a little adventure) in which some of Ponyville's background ponies are more than... well... you know.

She is the One who Mourns, She Who Raises the Sun and Moon, the Reclusive Princess.

Years have passed since the appearance of the Mare in the Moon, years during which Celestia has left the day-to-day running of the still-young kingdom of Equestria in the hooves of Platinum's grandson Prince Pyrite. Each day she raises and lowers the sun and moon, makes brief appearances at diplomatic meetings and special events, and then returns to her chambers, too lost in her melancholy to even count the years as they pass.

But what will she do when she discovers that her trusted prime minister has not been the faithful servant of the people she expected? Will she lose herself to her grief... or to the same madness that took her sister from her?
