Ponyville, Equestria, our whole planet. Our ancestors lost them all, forced to flee and hope for a new home among the stars. The journey...took many of us. Now, on Neo-Terra, so few of pony kind remains as we struggle to make a life on a planet where everything seems designed to kill us.
To venture beyond the walls of pony kind's sole bastion, to keep it safe from the myriad of threats the planet holds, to tame the planet and find the means to save our dying species, a new breed of soldier is required.
We are travelers.
We are survivors.
We are defenders.
We are HUNTRS.

Called by many names, this area of Equestria is dangerous and untamed, home to the most vile of all creation.

That quiet is shattered after a surpise attack by a ruthless gang of killers leaves the town in shambles, its mares and foals kidnapped by the outlaws.

Gather round my little ponies. Have you ever wondered why it is we carve faces into pumpkins and stick candles in them? Well, wonder no more. Come close now and listen to the tale of Jack of the Lantern.


Hey guys! This is a little something fun I thought I'd do for the Halloween season. This is the Irish tale of how Jack-o'-lanterns came to be, pony-ized! Hope you guys enjoy!

Sequel to A Mourning Heart
Three weeks have passed since Tacitus first arrived in Ponyville, and he is happier than he has been in a long time. He has a nice home, a job, and most importantly, wonderful friends that he loves dearly. But something is wrong in Ponyville. Ponies all over town, all over Equestria in fact, are suffering from an illness that Tacitus recognizes all too well. When Celestia sends him and his friends to discover the cause of the illness, they find a much more sinister plot in the works. An ancient and forgotten darkness is rising and threatens to engulf the world, and Tacitus, who has finally been able to let go of the grief of his past, must face it once again as shocking revelations are brought to light. Tacitus and his friends must stop this threat before it destroys everything they hold dear.

This is my second story and a sequel to "A Mourning Heart." I hope you all enjoy this story, because I'm going to have a blast writing it, and I hope you will comment and tell me your thoughts, opinions, and criticisms.

Tacitus has just moved to Ponyville and is trying to go on with his life. All he wants is to go on without being hurt anymore than he already has. But things change when he meets the residents of Ponyville, who see his sadness and are determined to help him. He doesn't want their help, but they won't give up easily. It's time Tacitus learned what real friendship was.

This is my first story, and it's the first part of a series I'm planning. Any and all suggestions and criticisms are welcome. Also, as a side note, Tacitus's cutie mark is the Eye of Horus, which I call the Eye of Horsus so that it fits in with the pony world. Anyway, I've rambled enough. Enjoy the story!
Sequel is here
