The Wandering Bard

"I am a singer, a poet, a musician, a storyteller. I am a bard at heart. That is who I am. That is what I shall always be." (Icon by atokota on FurAffinity)


Everypony has someone who influences them, changes their lives. For Lyric, that someone was Finner, an old stallion who lived by the sea.

This story was greatly inspired by the song From Finner by Of Monsters and Men.

Many thanks to these wonderful people for helping to turn this story into the best that it could be: KellyTheDrawingUni, Protopony350, Kirito-Persona, MelancholyIguana, Will-Owl-the-Wisp, and Haycart.

It is winter time once again in Equestria. Foals are playing in the snow, and the magic of Hearth's Warming is in the air. But, there was a time when ponies tried to do away with winter...

Many thanks to my friend Will-Owl-the-Wisp for being my editor and providing feedback.

Chapters (1)

This story is a sequel to Guardian Halo

So much chaos, so much death. Equestria is in turmoil, and Starswirl is in despair. How could he have ever thought that he would end it? Why did he ever think he could make a difference?

Many thanks to many of my friends for being my pre-readers and offering their feedback: Protopony350, Kirito-Persona, MelancholyIguana, and CeilingLeo.

Many thanks also to my friend Reneigh Haycart for once again being an editor, and to my friend Will-Owl-the-Wisp for also being an editor, and for the gorgeous cover art. The original can be found here.

Chapters (1)

It’s young Misty Moonrise’s birthday once again—that means cake, presents, and of course a big party! Everypony loves parties, especially birthday parties… right?

This was a birthday present for my good friend Will-Owl-the-Wisp. She also pre-read and edited the story, and it has been posted here with her approval.

Chapters (1)

While visiting her hometown, a small filly approaches Lyric with a question. Unicorns have their magic and pegasi can fly, but is there anything that makes earth ponies special? Fortunately, Lyric just may have the answer.

This story was inspired by someone I don't associate with anymore, but was close with at the time of writing.

Many thanks to my friends Will-Owl-the-Wisp and Reneigh Haycart for their help with editing, and for helping to make this story the best it can be. Many thanks also to Wisp for the lovely cover art!

Chapters (1)

One friend far away from his very special somepony. Another friend in agony from being left behind. In a time when songs and stories will do no good, how can Lyric ease their broken hearts?

The Shadowmancer Saga is created by and written in collaboration with Will-Owl-the-Wisp.

Chapters (1)

They say that I must send my sister to the moon for one thousand years. They say that she is too far gone, and that it is for the best. But I cannot believe that. I refuse to believe it! Luna is my sister after all, and I can still save her!

But then a small part of me asks, What if I really can't save her by myself? What if... what if they're right?

Inspired greatly by the Luteces' cameo in Trade Ya! You do not need to have played BioShock Infinite to read and understand this story.

Also, many thanks to Alicorn Airport, Kirito-Persona and Protopony350 for being my pre-readers. Many, many thanks as well to Haycart for being my wonderful editor.

And many thanks to Will-Owl-the-Wisp for the amazing cover art. You can find the original here.

Now with a story reading by myself, Wisp, and MelancholyIguana.

Warning: Some spoilers to the end of BioShock Infinite in the comments.

Chapters (1)

Bat ponies. They are a part of Equestria just as much as any earth pony, unicorn, pegasus or alicorn. They make up Princess Luna's guard. But not much is known about them. Where did these ponies come from? Who were they before? One ancient tome, penned by an explorer of a time long past, tells all.

Many, many thanks to my friend DangerCloseArt for suggesting that I do a story about bat ponies. Many thanks also to my friends Kirito-Persona, Alicorn Airport, and Protopony350 for being my pre-readers. And many thanks also go to Will-Owl-the-Wisp for being a pre-reader and editor, and for the phenomenal cover art. You can find the original here.

Chapters (5)

Author's Note: This story was written when an earlier version of Night Terrors was posted on this site. This story will be updated sometime in the near future to better reflect the events that transpire in the current version of Night Terrors. In the meantime, enjoy!

It has been two weeks after Misty’s harrowing events in the Never, also known as the land of dreams, and she has yet to find an answer as to what threatened it. Her desperation and frustration grow with every passing day. So when she is invited by a friend to a carnival, will Misty take the time to go? And could she set aside her fears and doubts long enough to enjoy it once she arrived?

Many, many thanks to Will-Owl-the-Wisp for helping with research and for being my collaborator.

Chapters (1)

Two ponies... two stories... two ends that lead to two beginnings.

When these ponies face the ends of their lives, they are forever altered in ways they never could have imagined.

This story elaborates on some things that took place in a Heroes of Equestria campaign and that can be found in Magical Melodies and Guardian Halo. They do not have to be read for this story to be understood and enjoyed.

Rated Teen for some mild language and for some blood spilled in battle, though it's fairly minor.

Cover art by Zen the Zebra/Mustikk1. The original can be found here.
