A long time ago, two sisters ruled over the land: one held dominion over the day, and the other commanded the night. They quarreled, and to solve their dispute, they did something petty. They split the planet in half. They stopped the rotation of the planet—tidally locked it—so that one side would always be night, and the other always day.

Rarity is a member of the Corona Empire's parliament, sworn to do what is best for her country. One day, Queen Celestia summons her for a private talk. She asks Rarity to do something unthinkable, unfathomable, unheard of: deliver a message to the leader of the Nightscape, Queen Luna.

Cadance and Twilight have discovered something about the Alicorn Amulet. Whenever someone rejects its promises of power, it weakens the Amulet's magic. In theory, if enough ponies should be tempted by it and reject it, it would destroy the amulet forever.

They summon the help of volunteers from across Equestria, in the hope of destroying it for good.

This story is a sequel to Inexcusable


She looked just like Princess Celestia, except marred and broken. Her ceremonial barding had rusted slightly, and dirt matted her coat. Most noticeable was her hair; black streaks accompanied its usual multicolored luster. They looked like discolorations in an old photograph.

Worst was the scar across her chest. Her armor covered it, but nothing could hide what it meant.

The tarnished Celestia smiled at Luna. "H-hello, monster. I would say I am glad to see you, but that w-w-wouldn’t be quite accurate."

Twilight Sparkle was headed to the Canterlot Historical Revisionists Convention, when a lightning bolt struck her Starswirl the Bearded costume. Forced to find a quick replacement, she spots a pony selling costumes. The sign adorning their booth proclaims "100% Curse-Free Top Quality Costumes!" The pony is even wearing a dark cloak and ominous hood: surely they are a costuming enthusiast.

Normally, Twilight wouldn't buy any merchandise from a shady vendor, but there's no way she's going to show up to the Canterlot Historical Revisionists Convention without a good costume. The historical revision enthusiasts would eat her alive in every debate she attempted!

Surely the merchant is obeying Equestrian truth-in-advertising laws.

After the board rejects her research application, Doctor Luna tries something foolish; using herself as a test subject.

Surely diluting a pony's inner darkness is a worthy goal? Surely perfecting her elixir is worth the risk? Surely.

Ponies say that if you wait at a crossroads with darkness in your heart, you can trade your soul away for power.

Trixie thinks this sounds like a good deal. Surely her soul is worth much more than the average one. Certainly enough to afford revenge against that life-ruining Twilight Sparkle.

But maybe exchange rates for souls are not as favorable as she expected.

Late one night, a young Spike asks Celestia why he is the only dragon in Equestria. Celestia tells him a very old story: the time two sisters challenged Tiamat—the Matriarch of Dragons—to a contest of knowledge.

This story is a sequel to If You Came to Conquer


Princess Nightmare Moon had tried to keep it secret. She had suppressed her power, feigned ignorance, played the outdated fool at every opportunity. She should have known that something like this would happen. A threat that would reveal her, whether she played dumb or not.

If she had to reveal herself, then at least she could protect Equestria in the process. She nocked the arrow. The bow felt so flimsy, but she could not risk him absorbing a spell. She laced magic across the arrow and the string and the air, enough to make it fly faster and aim smoother. She sighted him easily; Tirek was a large target. Now he only had to turn around. An arrow to the spine would kill him simply and instantly, no matter how much magic he had absorbed.

Once he was dead, the hard part would come: explaining herself to Celestia.
