In the wake of the Crystal Empire’s reappearance and King Sombra’s deposement, a thousand thorny legal, cultural, and practical issues need to be addressed by the ponies of both lands. But there’s one issue that’s blindingly straightforward: the thousand-year-old Equestrian State of Conflict Empowerment Act is still technically in effect, and until it’s revoked, Equestria remains—officially—at war with the Empire.

Under the circumstances, nopony in Parliament could possibly consider voting against its revocation.

Right?

A peek at the sausage-making, inspired by GaraTheAuthor’s political fiction. Written for the Springtime Sandbox-Slash-Sandbox Switcheroo!

Nothing is without a price, as many discover to their sorrow. Few are those who truly know themselves, and fewer still are those who know which prices are worth bearing—and which hide perils threatening that which they most treasure.

A single repository for various bite-sized chunks of fiction I've written which would otherwise have no home. No particular relation between any of them, other than that they're very short, were written in a very short amount of time, or most often, both.

Tagged "incomplete" in case I add some more stories to it in the future. Don't hold your breath, though!
