Celestial Era 1010. After the attempted coup by Nightmare Moon and the bloody conflict that followed, Celestia has emerged victorious. With her sister's forces scattered and leaderless, she creates the Order of Celestial Paladins to hunt down and capture any remaining Lunar Pegasi.

Should they come quietly, they will be purged of Luna's magic and transformed back into regular Pegasi. But if they refuse, well, Celestia has zero tolerance for Children of the Night. This is the story of one of them, a mare named Dusk Blossom, hunted by her own brother on order of Celestia.

Can she survive? And what will it do to her relationship with her brother?


This fic is a remake of the first fantasy short story I ever wrote, way back in 2012, simply entitled "Paladin". Consider this a thank you to all my followers who have helped me grow as a writer over the years within the pony fiction community!

This story assumes that the Children of the Night PMV is canon, with ponies willingly following Princess Luna.

"The Daylight Horror" by Twilight Sparkle. Between those pages, Sunny discovers a harrowing tale, suggesting that the late Princess Twilight was quite the versatile horror writer.

After all, it is just a creepy story... isn't it?

Twilight Sparkle has a problem on her hooves. A very hairy problem, to boot. It is not every day that spells misfire, but when they do, the results are strange, to say the least. Turns out, Equestria isn't the only world with inherent magic, so swapping one citizen for another may not be as simple as she thought it'd be.

A one-shot Discworld crossover fic.

There is a legend among the Outlaws of Equestria's southern deserts. They tell of a ghost, a blind pony dressed in black, carrying a raven on her shoulder. For Silver Steps, this legend is all too real. Once a young colt with big dreams of becoming an Outlaw, now he is on the run, endlessly chased by the mysterious hangmare.

But what could he, a hapless excuse for a stallion who wouldn't hurt a fly, have done to invoke the hangmare's wrath? Perhaps the answer lies in the minds of the dead, for whom the hangmare seeks to avenge?


Inspired by the Volbeat song, "The Hangman's Body Count". Rated T for moderate gore and suggested suicide. Happy Nightmare Night, everypony!

When Sandbar receives an invitation to attend a Yakyakistan Hearth's Warming festival with Yona, he should logically be overjoyed at the opportunity! Right? Unfortunately, life is more complicated than that.

Sandbar is a transgender colt who loves all things feminine, and because of this, he suffered from frequent transphobia throughout his childhood in Boltamare. This left him with deep anxieties over new cultures, sparking a resurgence of intrusive thoughts that he has to fight to suppress.

Can he overcome his fears and truly be himself at one of the biggest yak festivals in all of Equestria?


Rated T for mild references to bullying and transphobia. Reader discretion is advised. This story is dedicated to all the trans and non-binary pony fans out there. Trans rights are human rights!

When Twilight invites Thorax over to document the full history of the changelings, the story presented sends her down a dark rabbit hole. From this, she will learn the tragic origins of Queen Chrysalis, the creatures once known as faelings, and the war between the three pony tribes before the first Hearth's Warming.
