Lurks-no-More


Hi! I'm Lurks-no-More: a pony writer, RPG player, SF and fantasy fan, and a general nerd. I hope you enjoy my stories!

This is a scattering of varied shortfics based on MLP:FiM. I got the idea of writing these from an event held by Equestria Daily, where you were to write a 300-word story that made sense. Squeezing a story, or even a scene, into such minuscule length is an interesting challenge, and one that I found myself enjoying, even though I routinely ended up going over the minimum.

The Love Song of B. Macintosh Apple does not quite belong with the rest, but as it's a short story (poem? parody of a poem?), it kind of fits. Eee-yup.

As Princess Cadance and Shining Armor leave to spend their wedding night, Twilight Sparkle and her friends get to kick back and relax after a successful wedding. And just as she's getting comfortable, the conversation veers onto the subject of... sex. And before she knows it, Twilight faces the terrifying prospect of having to tell her friends about her first time. A special, magical, enchanted moment.

Some unicorn spells should have never been devised...

Princess Celestia will at last get a taste of Twilight Sparkle. No, not in that way! The whole Elemental Harmony Squad is involved... no, still not in that way!

Popsicles will be prominently involved... and again, not in a naughty way. The only naughty pony here is Luna.

After seeing "Luna Eclipsed", a lot of people were asking why Celestia let her sister dear go out to Ponyville, all decked up as the Metal Queen of Darkness, complete with bat-guards and a murderchariot right out of Nightmare Night stories. Shouldn't she have told her sister about how things had changed, and that her grand entrance might backfire?

Here, then, is my take of how Celestia's attempts went. It turns out that Luna can out-flank her scheming sister sometimes!

Rainbow Dash can handle busting the clouds or bringing in a weather front in her sleep, but there's more to being the captain of the Ponyville Weather Patrol than just the weather work.

With the roof of the Town Hall wrecked by lightning, Dash has to deal with not just the increasingly irate Mayor, but also her second-in-command Cloudkicker's impending nervous breakdown, and one highly apologetic, wall-eyed pegasus...

On the day after the Grand Galloping Gala, Princess Celestia receives a request for audience from her "nephew", Prince Blueblood. What on Equestria could he want from her?

- - -

Blueblood has the distinction of being just about the only character that's roundly hated and despised by the MLP:FiM fandom. This was my attempt at a bit more sympathetic treatment of him; here, he's a proud and snobbish doofus, but not a complete douche. This is a stand-alone story, at least for now, but it could also be the prologue for a series of fics describing Blueblood's career as a questing knight, and his redemption as he learns a bit of humility, compassion and the true value of nobility.

In the magical land of Equestria, the night has lasted for a thousand years. But now, with the anniversary of Queen Luna's victory over her rebellious sister approaching, the Queen's most faithful student learns about a disturbing old prophecy. Can she, along with a hastily gathered group of allies, save the Land of Eternal Night from the dawn that Hellion Queen is trying to bring?

This is an alternate-universe - or, to be absolutely precise, a reverse-universe fan-fic for MLP:FiM.
The cover image is a bit of fan art from DotRook over on dA: Dark Equestria: Rarity

Second (and final) chapter will be coming soon, once I polish it a bit.

Four ponies, four different perspectives. Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle and Applejack all share their perspectives of how Dash and AJ became a couple, and how they affected the outcome.

Another image-inspired shipping story, the impetus for this came from the John Joseco pic I'm using as the cover art. This one's a deliberate counter to Appledashed, too; AJ and RD are just too darn cute together to keep apart entirely.

Ponyville's premiere prankster pair, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, are faced with a dilemma as the April Fools' day approaches. Can they come up with a joke to top all the jokes they've pulled in previous years? Will Pinkie's rapidly expanding waistline cause a rift between the friends, and who's going to take responsibility? Why is Fluttershy, of all ponies, so disapproving of the situation?

Applejack and Rainbow Dash, sharing the barn during a rain.
Sometimes, admitting your secret love to your best friend doesn't quite work out the way you had hoped and dreamed...

Another story entirely inspired by a piece of fanart, in this case John Joseco's Apple and Rainbow in a Barn.
