If this is what it means to be a fool, I don't wish to be anything else.

There was always a plan. Twilight knew that. When she was younger, the plan seemed less grandiose. Excel in school, settle down, start a family. Simple things. Simple life. When she was younger, she thought the plan was her plan. Now that she's older she knows better. This was never her plan. She was just part of it.

The Earth is not a cold dead place. Indeed, it lives. It sings and everything around it raises a voice to join in the choir. The Earth is an unfinished work and will remain as such. It shall never be complete, never final in its design until the design is destroyed. It is in this destruction that the finality comes. Etcetera, etcetera.


Collected here are various short works that don't quite yet have life as fully featured fics. Some of them may never leave this compilation, some may eventually be developed into full pieces. For now their genre tags can be found in the chapter listing and short description within the authors note. Story art credit to redruin01 on Tumblr. Editors are various (and sometimes not present at all) but you can probably blame either Red, Wish, or Seer if something is out of place.

Raven Song doesn't hate her job. Honest! It's just... it could be better, right? Most ponies she knows don't go in with this overwhelming feeling of gloom and misery; no storm cloud of self loathing following them onto the train in the morning. Then again, most ponies don't have to fetch tea for the Princess of Equestria.

Love is many things. It is always unique, always sits different in the chest of the lover who bears it. It may burn or it may cool, it may excite the blood or soothe the nerve, but it is always love. Come, then. Won't you take some time to let it grow?


Written as an entry to the Quills And Sofas Pride contest, where it and Thank You placed second. Edited with the help of the esteemed, talented, hard-working, quick-witted, and ever delightful Red Parade. Art credit to and obtained from: Spectralunicorn for the FlutterDash piece, White Diamonds for the RariJack piece, and Wandering Pegasus for the TwiPie piece.

Six photographs. Six pieces of a mare time forgot. Six parts of her, lost then found again. The scenes they painted called to her, pulling on a yearning to understand that shook her to her core. Luna had to go. She had to find out — was there anything left of her? Or had she truly died, all those years ago on the moon, and been reborn through the fires of friendship? Luna hoped those photos held the answer.


Written as a gift to my friend and superb author, Zontan, and edited with the help of the ever-talented and all-powerful Wish and Red.

Love was immortal. Love burned even when all else ceased, when the flame of breath left ones chest still did love burn. So then did an immortal lover love forever; the kind of love that could topple empires and threaten to coat the world in ice. This was Twilight's last chance to prove she still had love left to give.

She only hoped it was enough.

The stars have been Celestia's tireless companions since the heat of the sun first scorched her soul clean. For a thousand long, lonely years they have been the only constant in her life. Their soft voices just barely cresting the horizon as she pulls the sun into place before they go silent for another day.

Some days she wishes she never heard them at all.


Written in an hour for a speedwrite at Quills and Sofas and presented here with some editing. Thanks to the everyone in that server, really. I wouldn't be the writer I am nor the writer I'm going to be were it not for y'alls presence in my life. Special thanks to the lovely, talented, and heart-wrenchingly kind Seer for editing assistance.

Twilight and Rarity had been going steady for a while. She loved her! That much was fact, a scientifically verified claim that Twilight could fly proudly. Their love wasn't exclusive. They had talked about that. Rarity loving another didn't lessen the love she felt for Twilight and vice versa. So Twilight felt no guilt when she fell for Fluttershy.

She just didn't know what to do about it.

Navigating the world as a trans person wasn't easy. Emotional challenges notwithstanding, the legal and medical decisions you'd have to face were enough to make your head spin. Twilight Sparkle was lucky then that she had a brother who had already lived through it all. Her own knight in shining armor.

Thank you, really.

I cannot stress enough the role that Dreamer Deceiver and wishcometrue played in making this fic what it is. Without their support both as editors and as friends, I don't think this fic would be what it is.

And thank you, especially, to my brother; my real life Shining Armor. You're the best brother a trans girl like me could ever hope for. Thanks for passing me the torch, bro.

Twilight wanted to relax. Really, she did! She had been trying to relax for her entire life and when it finally looked like a day off was within reach... Rarity started glowing. Like, actually glowing. And Twilight's the only one that can see it! So it falls to her, of course, to take care of things as quickly as possible.

Editing done by the ever capable and endlessly delightful wishcometrue, to whom I owe both this fics creation and my life. She can do no wrong. Cover art credit of Tumblr user cutecherryblossom.
