Times are changing for the ponies. Three years after their magic was restored and harmony established between the three races, they meet in Maretime Bay to finalize their reunification as the Equestrian Kingdom under Princess Sunny Starscout. Ponies gather in the seaside city with aims of celebrating a new era of peace among the ponies.

Yet there remains a lone voice unenthused with the transition.

Queen Haven rides into Maretime Bay with a chip on her shoulder and a crown on her head, the latter of which she will not leave the city wearing. Her subjects called for the agreement to be signed and for her to step down as Queen. She knows she wasn't a perfect ruler, but why does she have to give up everything? Why does everypony else get the happy ending while she gets swept into the ashcan of history? To make matters worse, she's stuck with an overeager unicorn who wants to be her friend.

But upon her arrival, these questions fall to the wayside as an attack is commenced. Crazed creatures attack every pony they see, rounding them up for their mysterious master.

What they didn't expect is that Queen Haven isn't just a queen on her last legs. She's a mare with skills honed through a turbulent time of history. And both the invaders and the unicorn are about to learn that just because Haven may be more prone to parties and paparazzi doesn't mean she's harmless...

Twilight Sparkle knew going to Sunset Shimmer's house for Hearth's Warming would be more fun than the typical holiday festivities at her parents' house. She knew she and Sunset could party through the snowstorm blowing through town and not even be mildly inconvenienced. She knew that with everything that had happened since they'd met at the Friendship Games, she and Sunset's friendship would never falter.

She didn't know Sunset Shimmer cooked her popcorn on high.


Written for Tumbleweed for Jinglemas 2021.

Octavia didn't want to be in Hilltop for Hearth's Warming Eve. The remote mountain town was just a stopover, a distraction from her true home back in Ponyville. She just needs to wait for the blizzard to die down and the next sled out of town to arrive.

Unfortunately for her, the townsfolk are looking for a good Hearth's Warming show. Even worse, there's another pony from out of town more than eager to satisfy their craving.

And she just so happens to need an assistant...


Takes place during Season 6, after "No Second Prances" and before "To Where and Back Again".

Anon is happy with Twilight. Really. She loves the ornate castle, the lovely meals she eats, and, most of all, loves Twilight herself. It's so wonderful and beautiful in Equestria that Anon almost forgets she used to be human.

Almost.


My fourth-place entry to the Filly Anon Contest. A different approach to the idea, leaning in a more serious direction than many authors take the concept.

Liuetenant Marewell, newly transferred to the Ponyville Police Department, battles ever-encroaching boredom and alcoholism with each day in her new home. Despite the town's reputation, little in the way of crime happens within the hamlet. Marewell can't complain, though she still does.

However, a new case soon arrives in the form of a break-in to Miss Hoofson's Antique Shop. The clerk lies on the floor in a trance, and a display case sits empty. Throw in a nosy princess and promises of death, and Marewell soon finds herself in the thrall of a case much bigger than she is.


Takes place a few years after Season 9.

Price Back, intrepid reporter for the Equestrian Grazzette, doesn't want to be in Baltimare. Nor does he want to be stuck in the Convention Center, covering a Daring Do convention with a bunch of obsessed weirdos collecting action figures and suggestive artwork. He's a stallion made for big stories, and there are none around ponies dressed up in strange costumes.

But he soon finds there is a story brewing in Baltimare. One of mysterious authors, notorious gangsters, and weapons of mass destruction. It's a story many reporters would die to get... and Price just might.


Takes place a few months after the MLP Movie.

Technically a sequel to the Price Back character's story in the OC Slamjam Round 2 (the entry by Price Back's author a.k.a. Me), but it's not necessary to read to understand this story. The character Lilligold mentioned in the first few chapters was created by ArgonMatrix.

Oliver doesn't know why the Equestrians came to Earth. He doesn't know why the portal they used is expanding and turning humans into colorful equines wherever it passes. He doesn't even know why the rest of the world seems so accepting of the change.

All he knows is that his father dragged him all the way to Portland, Oregon, to say goodbye. To family, to friends, and to humanity as we know it .

It'd be a lot easier if the invader in his aunt's apartment would stop smiling.

Ponies attain redemption different ways. Some do community service for the less fortunate. Others visit estranged relatives to sort out the troubled past. A few even go on grand adventures across Equestria, saving the innocent and weak from terrifying monsters and villains.

Lightning Dust didn't need any of that. She didn't bow and throw herself down in pitiful humility, begging for a second chance or whipping her back. She took her life by the reigns and steered headlong into the dangerous stunts her flight coaches told her never to do. With a little luck and a lot of skill, she managed to build a crew that attracts record crowds and can go head-to-head with the Wonderbolts.

But when the rival that sent her into this tailspin of success appears at her show, she learns time doesn't heal all wounds. Sometimes, it just makes them deeper.

All it takes is a single spell, one that will make his jailer a goddess over all.
