Just someone who has way too much time on their hands, so they write about ponies! Gotta pass the time somehow when you're truckin'.

Swept Clean has worked hard all of his life, cleaning buildings top to bottom, including; windows, floors, walls, beds, and anything one could think of that would need cleaning, he does it.

But how can he hope to clean the sickness out of a young colt? Armed only with countless stories to tell, and decades worth of wisdom to impart upon his young mind, maybe there is something he can do to help. Though, you know what he isn't? A doctor.

And yet, that's what seemed to draw this sick little Pegasus towards him. Swept was the greatest thing in the world, and somehow the colt found a friend in him, after hearing the old janitor mention his idol, Spitfire. Surely a few more tales, and some needed snuggles and cuddles should be enough to cure whatever ails the little guy! Besides, he will be better before he knows it, right?


Written for Categorical Grant's Cuddle Contest 2018-2019!

Prompt B

Special thanks to a close friend of mine Duskhoof for helping to motivate me to actually get this done in time, as well as a few pointers along the way. (Got a few collabs coming up with this guy, so stay tuned for those!)

And shout out to my editor Salty Alty for fixing my mistakes. (Check out his stories if you want too!)

And, to the judges who might read this, thank you for taking the time to read this story. I hope you enjoy it somewhat, and I'm eager to lean about what I could do to become a better writer! I've got more stuff planned for the future, so if you want to see more, make sure you hit that follow button so you can stay up to date on everything I'm doing.:twilightsmile:

Now with a live reading! Check it out here: StraightToThePointStudio reads Tell Me A Story.

DISCLAIMER: Spitfire in this story was an orphan, who ran away from home at a young age. While she did eventually reconnect with her mother, when she joined the Wonderbolt's, she was a runaway orphan. That's why it's an Alt Uni. Okay? Okay.

The life of a teenager is always hard, for each and every one of us, although some had it a bit easier than others. A loving family, a group of trusting and wonderful friends, a few after school activities to help keep their minds occupied, and maybe even a special someone to help shoulder the pain if need be. Though, some didn't have is as easy...

My name is Scootaloo, and this is the story of how I learned to grow up in this superficially unfair world, and what growing up meant to me. Through childish banter, teenage angst, and up into coping with the loss of a loved one, I'll walk you through every dirty detail of my life where I changed the most. All thanks to a kind hearted man, with a deep voice and the softest of smiles.

In life, a mentor can help guide you, help you learn many different things that will assist you in the world. Making gaps appear smaller, mountains feel shorter, and help ease the burden of growing up one lesson at a time. But in the end, it's up to you, the individual to use and apply the knowledge in your own life. And that, isn't always as clear cut as some make it out to be...


Firstly I want to give the biggest and most heartfelt thanks to my good friend and fellow writer, Duskhoof for backing this silly story of mine. I'm hoping I can provide him and you all with a touching, heartfelt and somewhat relatable story. If you enjoyed it, make sure to let me know! :twilightsmile:

This has been only edited by me, so there is bound to be a few mistakes. Scheduling issues with my editors lead to this one having to slip out the gate.

Duskhoof. A single father to a cute little filly named Mole, finds something to change up life quite a bit. He meets the lone human in the world, befriending him quickly once he realizes he's in the same position as him. Though, the two fillies are vastly different. One being flesh and blood, the other made out of metal and wires. Though, he will soon come to realize that this human who calls himself "Silver," isn't that different from himself. Besides, stallion's gotta look out for each other, right?


Here is a story I never thought would see the light of day to be honest. I had this idea for a few months or so now, and, as it was my friend Duskhoof's birthday a few days prior to writing this description, I wrote this little chapter for him! It might not make much sense to you as the reader, but a lot of it is very symbolic to how our friendship is/will be. I was never going to post it, but Duskhoof said that I should, so here it is! There WILL be more to this, when that comes, I'm not so sure. But if you wanna see more, let me know with a comment below! Leaving the rating at T, just in case.

Special thanks to Duskhoof for being one of the main driving forces behind my writing. I wouldn't have gotten this far without his help. :twilightsmile:

Also keep in mind, I wrote the first chapter in two hours in the middle of the night. So apologies for any mistakes and what not. My editor is away, so I'll be doing the editing myself.

This story is a sequel to A Butterfly's Kiss


On a night like many other night's after it happened. You awake in a cold sweat, heart pounding in your chest, almost threatening to stop dead. But at this point, you'd almost welcome it...




This was written a long time ago, back in the summer. I was starting a new job the next day, but I woke with terrible anxiety the day before. This is the results of it. I do NOT condone suicide. It is never the answer. If you or anyone you know has these feelings, talk to someone.

This is largely un-edited, I wrote it in a hour or so and never touched it since. While not written originally as a sequel to A Butterflies Kiss, it could be considered as one. As this story was never meant to be seen by anyone, take it how you will.

As Ponyville's self appointed animal helper, Fluttershy takes responsibility for all the critters around town. And with Fall already deep underway, she overworks herself to make sure all the animals are prepared for the long winter months. At least this time she won't be alone, as you offer to lend her a hand.

Maybe she actually won't work herself ragged this year. Maybe she planned ahead and started early? Or maybe did the same as she always does. Regardless, you'll be there to help the beautiful pegasus... And hopefully not make a fool of yourself in front of your crush.

AN: Just something small I started a while back. This started as a RP with a friend of mine (you know who you are.) So It's not perfect, it's just a little cute romance story involving YOU and Fluttershy. The dialog from you is implied, just trying a different writing style as I like to do.

I hope you enjoy, partially inspired by the cover photo. Feel free to point out errors, it's only proofread by me, once through mostly. So there is bound to be errors.

Many months after Alex appeared in Equestria, he is living with the mare who took him in, and gave him a home. That mare was Lyra Heartstrings. Although the two fell in love, it was soon evident that she was not all she seemed to be.

The mare kept him away from other ponies, alienating him to all of Ponyville. He couldn’t get a job, nopony would make more then idle chit chat with the man in fear of what she might do to them. She was clearly, obsessed.

But enough was enough, he sees how wrong it is, and takes a stand against her. But that may prove to do more harm, then good to every-pony involved.


This will be a short story, around 10 chapters or so. Romance, family, a couple of dark/sad moments. Rated T for the moment. I doubt there will be any clop, major gore. But there may be violence and other abusive elements.

War. It has been going on for many years before I arrived. And it still seems to be going on as I speak. I tried, all my time here in this foreign land I've been told I was their last hope. The one who could end it all, free the ponies and save all the land. I was this... "Key." But I also heard among these legends, I could be their greatest threat.

Am I the their last hope? Or will I destroy this land like many have told me I would...

Special thanks to my editor, MysticGuitar! for pre-reading and editing Chapter 1 for me!


Story contains some violence, language, perhaps clop at some point, but I'm not sure. :twilightsmile:
