Princess Cadance, in an attempt to better understand love in all its forms, has decided she needs to sleep with every species in Equestria, no exceptions. When the only member of one of those species says no, she doesn't take it well, and subconsciously channels a power she wasn't even aware of. A power with a dark past, a darker champion, a deadly enemy, and a horrific side effect.

The stakes are higher than ever in Sam's latest adventure. Instead of having to recover his personal property, telling Thunder and Lightning to knock it off, or getting revenge on the cookies that spoiled his dinner, Sam must save his... big brother Mark from the clutches of Queen Chrysalis? Talk about a step up the hero ladder.

Why does she want his brother and what does she plan to do with him? Sam has no idea, but that won't stop him from diving headfirst into Equestria, swiping everything that isn't nailed down, and running away screaming at even the mere sight of Princess Twilight and her dreaded tea party.

A.N.: Straight crossover between Pajama Sam and MLP:FiM.

As a quick rundown for anyone not familiar with the series, Pajama Sam is a children's point-and-click adventure game series that was published by Humongous Entertainment from 1996 to 2003. It involved Pajama Sam, the titular character, traveling to fantastical worlds full of interesting characters to achieve goals and learn life lessons. The gameplay gimmick of the series (and the company in general) was that every primary goal had two distinct solutions, only one of which would be selected per play-through. This meant you had to play the game at least twice in order to see everything, and each entry had sixteen different possible paths to choose from, greatly increasing replay value.

Xanatos Gambit: noun. A plan for which all foreseeable outcomes benefit the creator — including ones that superficially appear to be failure. The creator predicts potential attempts to thwart the plan, and arranges the situation such that the creator will ultimately benefit even if their adversary "succeeds" in "stopping" them.

Aelion, home of the Immortals, those chosen few whose eternal life allows them to stand in defense of their world no matter how many times their enemies strike them down. Up until about five seconds ago, I was not one of them. Now I'm standing outside of some crumbling castle under the light of a total eclipse with only the voice in my head of the being that stuck me here to tell me what the **** is going on.

Leere's to-do list (for me):
1. Go into castle.
2. Help those inside.
3. Drive off impending invasion from The Reapers of Death.

...I think he missed a few steps.

A.N.: This is not Chess Game of the Gods or Displaced. Crossover with Skyforge the MMO. Kudos if you can figure out where the name George Someone comes from. Featured 1/6/2016.

Moondancer shut herself off from the world when Twilight decided to study instead of attending her party. That is not a normal reaction to a negative response from somepony with the mental status of "friend." A snub from a crush, however...

A.N. This is the FIRST Moonlight story. Ever. It was written the night of the episode and approved the day after.

Ponies: An herbivorous, herd based, female dominant, highly pacifistic, planet bound society.
Kzinti: A carnivorous, male only (the females aren't sapient), extremely aggressive, space faring military culture.

When the lone scout ship Thrak-Shan is sent to investigate a White Dwarf orbiting a planet, the crew find themselves overlooking Kzin paradise. The world, dubbed Tetra due to the dominant lifeforms being quadrupeds, is rich in untapped resources. On top of that, its wilds are full of wonderfully dangerous prey, and its inhabitants are ideal slave material. The only problem would be convincing their superiors that such a planet even exists, so of course, they enslave one of the locals and take it back with them.

Crosses over with Larry Niven's Man/Kzin Wars series.
Cover from Man/Kzin Wars Volume IX.

Spike has been tasked with cataloging every nook, cranny, and dark corner in his and Twilight's new home, thanks to Twilight constantly getting lost. However, while messing around with one of the walls in the dungeons he finds a book, far nicer than any other he's ever seen, and written by an author he doesn't recognize despite all the years spent retrieving books for Twilight from all over Canterlot. With Twilight out of the castle for the next few days, and no desire to continue looking for hidden passages, he decides to give it a read. The knowledge contained within will change him forever.

A.N. A story about learning Rationalism.
The blog posts the book is based on can be found at http://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/Rationality:_From_AI_to_Zombies and are free to read, if you're interested. Everything will be paraphrased because I have to understand something before I can convey it.

Not every MLP universe is as cuddly as the original. Whether it's the invading aliens, the slave-driving ponies, the powers I barely control, or the technology I only sort of know how to use, you've got a recipe for disaster. At least I've got one friend in this place, even if she's a pint sized horse who's even crazier than I am. I just hope I can come up with enough ideas to save our butts before something else decides to try to kill us. Or enslave me and throw her in jail. Whichever comes first.

Displaced, crosses over with "X-COM, Enemy Unknown" and "Your Human and You." Tags will be added as they become relevant.
