This story is a sequel to The Fourth Season


Sunset’s ambition is about to take her on the next step of her life: a three month tour teaching the ponies of Equestria about the human world. Three whole months. This is a good thing. It’s a great thing. Honest.

So why does Applejack feel like her world is about to fall apart? Both terrified and desperate for answers, she sits alone at a familiar gazebo and tries not to make a phone call that could change her life forever.


NOTE: Knowledge of The Fourth Season is not at all necessary to enjoy this story.

Written for Oroboro’s Sunset Shipping Contest: Journeys. This is all his fault and you should all blame him for making tempting me to write this when I should be doing other things. My habitual desire to enter contests is not my own fault. :fluttershyouch:

In a sunburned Equestria, Rarity leads the pleasant life of a clothier in the tiny town of Spurhoof. She’s got a successful business, a capable assistant, and the respect of the place she’s called home for six years. Maybe she never achieved her foalhood dreams of fabulosity, but at least she’s comfortable. What more can a mare ask for?

Then a band of outlaws decide to pay Spurhoof a visit, and their leader’s eye has settled upon Rarity. Soon she’ll have to fight not only for her life, but maybe her very soul. Will her diamond turn dull under the hot Equestrian sun, or will adversity make her shine all the brighter?


Now featured on Equestria Daily.

A big thanks to my brainstorming fellow and ever-awesome friend SorenPixels, who has helped me ponder the plans for this story since its inception.

Additional kudos to Danger Beans and Cerulean Voice for their help with the first few chapters.

Big thanks to the fantastic author Viking ZX for taking time out of his busy schedule to be my Alpha pre-reader.

Last but certainly not least, my gratitude to my gang of Beta pre-readers: Babroniedad, Lord-Commander, Merc the Jerk, Snowybee, Soge, and Wanderer D!


I was not prepared for the absolutely stunning world building or the incredibly well done characters. [...] This is a work of absolute art. — Equstarte Marine Sebaste

Reading and re-reading (and re-reading) this story was an amazing experience. It will always be one of my favorites! — Wanderer D

I dare say this is a masterpiece of the fandom. — FanOfMostEverything

It's a gorgeous, vivid-drawn setting you've crafted for this, and it hits its gritty Western beats and epic scope with aplomb. Rarity's character journey in this is a stellar one, and her gradual sink into (and recovery at the brink of) [...] darkness was wonderfully and believably told. — Carabas

Shining Armor went on a secret mission without alerting Celestia and Luna to this act. Now he's come back, and what he brought with him is beyond Cadance's comprehension. Desperate to save her ill husband but terrified of how her aunts will react, Cadance calls upon the one individual whose magic might be able to fix this.

But when dealing with the latent power of Grogar, even Discord may be hesitant.


The first in a new collection of Them tales. This one will be different from its predecessors due to my very different intentions with it.

This story is a sequel to Allure of Generosity


If there's a fundamental truth of the universe, it's that siblings don't always want to confide in one another. Sweetie Belle has a problem, but Rarity can't get her to open up to it or even admit it. Perhaps it will take the interference of another pony to break through Sweetie's shell.

The only question now is whether Fluttershy is up to the task.

At long last, Equestria has returned to a state of peace. Celestia can focus on the simple task of ruling her little ponies and bringing about Harmony.

Or she would, if she didn't feel that something was wrong. Wrong with her? Wrong with Equestria? She can't tell, and that only makes it worse. Perhaps her friends are right. Perhaps she's become so used to conflict she doesn't know how to relax.

That's what the voice tells her, anyway.

When teenage Rarity decides to start calling her mother by her first name, Cookie Crumbles is far from thrilled. But Rarity's at that age where she'll do just about anything to get a rise from her, and making it stop always takes a bit of work.

Luckily, Sweetie Belle might just give her the inspiration she needs to fight back.


A little something that popped into my head and had to be written down. Just for fun this time, folks.

This story is a sequel to A Figment of Her Imagination


Six months ago, Princess Twilight Sparkle found a way to create Daring Do out of the pages of one of A.K. Yearling's books. Yearling herself wasn't too pleased, but the situation seems to have resolved itself, so she paid it no more mind.

Now a distraught Fluttershy has come calling, and Yearling soon realizes that her doppelganger left a lot of pain in her wake. She's still not used to this whole friendship thing, but she can't just ignore a mare in need, can she?


Written on a whim and with no outside help whatsoever. It might pay to read the original story before jumping into this one.

Takes place shortly after the events of Daring Don't.
