Nurse Diane didn't expect the unconscious pink-haired woman to affect her so much. Now, she sees herself becoming more like the woman as time goes on, whether she wants to change or not.

Meanwhile, Officer Lozano is noticing that the townspeople are happier in the unconscious woman's presence. Yet, there is something very off about the aura she exudes. Discovering the truth may lead to more danger than they all expected...

Derpy Whooves has a severe memory problem. On any given day, her mind will suddenly "cut-off" what she's doing, leaving her standing there as though she had just woken up from a dream. It happens so often Derpy has learned to live with it, even if it gets her into trouble sometimes.

But something has been different lately. The episodes are becoming more frequent and Derpy is having trouble adjusting as her problem becomes more pronounced. Something tells her she needs to talk to another pony about it. Somepony like Rainbow Dash.

Derpy will soon discover that her lack of memory has been hiding some things from her that she didn't expect...

Year 2066: Technomancer Industries has brought life to almost 250 fictional characters over the years, including many from MLP:FiM, in the form of robotic companions. An attack upon two employees one year prior led to the creation of a safe space for augmented individuals, robots and supporters. The Church of Augmentation was created. And yet it needed a leader.

In 2066, Adam Jensen came online as a robotic re-creation of a famous character from Deus Ex: Human Revolution. He was put in-charge of the 500,000 members of the Church of Augmentation and sent to its main branch in Austin, Texas, to help protect those in need.

Soon, Jensen has discovered a hate group is planning an attack against those who support technology. When robotic companions like Coco Pommel and Cheerilee get caught up in the action, can they survive the threats of those sent to destroy them? What will Jensen do when he and his followers are threatened by those who believe the Church of Aug, and its members, shouldn't exist?

Content Warning: There are discussions and implications about some very serious real-world crimes in this story, including abuse and domestic violence. Even moreso, one of these situations involves an MLP character many of you might like, who participates in a very tough medical procedure at one point. There is no gore, but the situation is graphic. Reader discretion is advised.

Year 2061: One year ago, while protecting her son Armin during a riot, Coraline's hand is destroyed during an attack. After gaining a robotic limb from Technomancer Industries, she joins a support group for augmented people.

Included in the group are a Twilight Sparkle Pod Pal who gained severe PTSD when she witnessed the death of another Twilight Sparkle on television, an enigmatic once-human Maud Pie who says little but knows much, and a Gardevoir-suited human whose choices have now left her with an identity she can't seem to remove.

Together, can this support group help Coraline find peace again after the tragic attack which took her hand (and almost her life) a year prior?

-------

This story takes place in the "Equus Metamorphosis" storyline 11 years before the events of the main story. You don't have to read that story to understand this one. This is a self-contained one-shot. It helps you understand the main story a little more from the mother's perspective, and by itself functions as a story about how technology can affect our future. :)

Sweetie Derelle, the alternate reality Sweetie Belle, has arrived in Equestria to save everyone. That includes driving a bus full of orphans at high speed through Canterlot to make sure it doesn't explode. Also into Canterlot Castle. Specifically Celestia's Bedroom. Along the way, the hero everyone deserves known as Donut Joe will help the transdimensional trashcan-mouthed monstrosity complete her mission.

But can the city, and Rarity, learn to love this goggly-eyed savior from another dimension?

No. Probably not.

You have been tasked with the job of watching over Rainbow Dash in her cloud house as she nurses a hurt wing. Initially, Dash is not very happy about this, but over time, both of you learn to make the most of the situation and learn what you can about each other.

Then, as Dash begins to open up, she reveals what's really hurting her deep inside far more than the wounded wing. Together, you and Dash will share what matters to you, as she reveals just how much she has been hiding her true self from others all along. You will help Dash see just how beautiful she really is. And in turn, you'll feel what it's like to experience love from the most beautiful mare in all of Equestria.

Rated T for Moments of Intimacy. If you've ever wanted to read a sweet pony story where you read from the intimate, but safe non-sexual, role, then look no further.
