Thank you to The Legendary Bill Cipher, Shaslan, Wishcometrue, Flashgen, Snow Quill, Zontan, Red Parade, MasterThief, Moonshot, themoontonite, Vis-a-Viscera, Knox Locke, Equus, and Novelle Tale for prereading, editing, and being generally good people.

Wanna write something that you have no doubts about, ever? We do, too! Come figure that out with us on our Discord.

A collection of mini-fics. Probably tastes vaguely of cinnamon. Void where prohibited by law. Batteries not included. Made in a facility that processes peanuts. A 15% gratuity will be automatically applied to parties with 6 people or more.

(aka, things that are too short to publish on their own.)


Most chapters were written with the Quills and Sofa Speedwriting Group, for assorted panics and other contests. Wanna know why so many of our stories keep being awesome? Come find out on our Discord, we're sane, I promise. Mostly.


Individual chapter content warnings (if needed) and brief summaries as follows:

  1. A Hobby For Roseluck: Contains Roseluck trying to learn a brand-new hobby amidst a crisis. Feels like watching the sun rise in a quiet home.
  2. A Different Sky: Contains Pharynx and a young Ocellus learning observation skills. Well, one of them is learning, at least. Also contains Completely True Shrimp Facts™.
  3. A Normal Poem about a Normal Pony: Contains a very bad ending, from a certain point of view.
  4. Things That Remain: Contains the aftermath of a terrible fire, Raritwi, and the little things worth saving.
  5. Her Latest Model: Contains Twilight's adventure as she searches for Rarity in the Carousel Boutique's basement, but finds something far worse. Also contains mentions of death, definitely animal and possibly pony.

... the sheer amount of pre-readers and editors will be long and ridiculous. Probably includes The Legendary Bill Cipher, Zontan, Lofty, Red Parade, Moonshot, Stynger Skies, themoontonite, Regidar, Wishcometrue, Drider, Schattendrache, The Hat Man, Seer, Flashgen, ZeroMonkey, Skye Jr, Nailah, Krazy, and Dreamer Deceiver. Just putting the whole list out there... and even that's probably missing someone. If I missed you, I apologize! (Thank you, speedwrite server, for all that you do)

This story is a sequel to Futile Devices


Fluttershy had a plan to tell Rainbow Dash her true feelings, and this time she wouldn't back down. Everything would be perfect. It had to be. Rainbow deserved the best, after all.


Edited/proofread by: The Legendary Bill Cipher, Zontan, Lofty, Red Parade, Moonshot, Stynger Skies, themoontonite, Regidar, Wishcometrue, Drider, Schattendrache, The Hat Man, Seer, Flashgen, ZeroMonkey, Skye Jr, Nailah, and Dreamer Deceiver. Thank you so much for all your help!


Written for the Expanding Universes contest for the Quills and Sofas Speedwriting Group. The prompt was for each of us to submit a story, and then someone else would write a prequel or a sequel. I was so excited to get themoontonite's brilliant Futile Devices as my prompt. You can find us on Discord here! We're pretty fun, in my opinion, and sometimes we even write things!

Beneath the City, where the sunlight never touches, I wander. Will you wander with me?


Thank you to The Legendary Bill Cipher, Zontan, Lofty, Red Parade, Moonshot, and Stynger Skies for prereading, editing, and thwacking me over the head when things don't make sense. In theory, I could do this without you all, but it'd be worse and every other letter would be in comic sans.


Written in the great Quills and Sofa Speedwriting Group, for the second "Neural-Network Generated Candy Hearts" panic fiction contest. Wanna know why so many of our stories keep being awesome? Come find out on our Discord, where we write many words and sometimes things happen.

In retrospect, perhaps you should have been more specific about what sort of apple you'd wanted to receive. You thought you were ordering a tree. Instead, you got a pony, and a griffin too!


Thank you to The Red Parade and Krazy for prereading and being super-duper encouraging!


Tied for first in the Quills and Sofa's Speedwriting Shipping Hat 2 contest. We were to ship Braeburn and Gabby; I just had a different interpretation of the prompt than most. Feel free to give us a join here, it's so much fun!
