A day after the events of "Hearth's Warming Club," Sandbar finds out another reason why his griffon friend does not want to return go Griffonstone. In the eyes of the griffons, Gallus isn't considered a legal adult as he has no one to perform a coming of age ceremony. One that would give the young griffon self-guardianship and freedom of choice to leave the country to move to Equestria. However, since he could not be adopted without the consent of a living relative, Gallus is stuck in perpetual legal and culture limbo.

That was until Sandbar thought up of a loophole. If his friend is unable to be free by adoption, then perhaps the only way to do so, is to marry him. At least, temporarily.

It just might be the most ingenious prank that Princess Luna has ever conceived. A simple one at that. All she had to do was to bribe her sister's most trusted doctor to tell her that she's dying. With only about a week left, Celestia then decides that she will spend her last eight days doing the crazy, immature, random and funniest things that she could think of while preparing for her own funeral.

In this trio of short, anthological stories, I'll be telling three different ghost stories. One from the sea, one from the land, and one from the frosty air. All about some of the darker sides of Equestria.

1: The Cepheus - The Equestrian Naval ship receives a mysterious distress signal only to find an abandoned old ship floating in the fog.

2: The Hearse Ride - A group of foals decided to go on a new ride through the Everfree Forest in an old hearse with a cloaked driver and a ragged minstrel singing a rather disturbing song.

3: Psychosis - After spending over two weeks being trapped in a blizzard in the mountains, one of a group of friends is slowly driven mad to the point he would crave for something else.

This story is a sequel to Inverno in F Minor


Warning: The following story is currently unedited and will contain classical music. The story is inspired by the anime show: ClassicaLoid. If you do not like those, you know where the exit button is. Also, since I'm trying to portray these composers as closely as to how they were, it only stands to reason that I put an M/M tag on (especially with three particular characters) Lully, Schubit, and Tchaicoltsky.

Cover art was created by Mix-up, aka amalgamzaku.


Taken place after the birth of Flurry Heart, Cadance and Shining tried to get their adopted son to interact with foals his age. But their son, Inverno, is easily bored with them so he decides to use magic to craft some friends that he wanted to have. So following the instructions of a mental resurrection spell from his biological father's (Sombra) he brings the minds of history's greatest composers back. However, they are immediately separated throughout Equestria. Inverno goes on a quest to recover these brilliant minds while discovering that they come back with something more than he could imagine.

Story dedicated to the voice actress and friend: MLPGal. To her, that has gone through much but still presses forward.
