Vicereine Puissance has ruled as one of Princess Luna's richest and most powerful nobles for fifty years, but not even her uncountable wealth or legions of followers can save her from old age. As her health begins to fail and the doctors tell her there is nothing they can do, she rejects the suggestion of Luna and others that she should retire and spend her remaining time with her family. Instead she decides to solve this problem as she has solved all others: by drawing upon her stupendous resources and vast political power in order to obtain the one remaining thing she wants: the immortal, ageless life of an alicorn. But while she thinks she can afford any price, the journey she sets out on could prove to be far more costly than she had ever anticipated.

The disgraced Duke Greengrass has lost his power, his influence, and his good name. There seems to be no alternative for him other than a fast retirement and a self-imposed exile far from the public eye. Greengrass, however, cannot imagine life outside the Court, and he refuses to stop playing the Game no matter how difficult it becomes. When he stumbles across evidence that a Sun Cult chapter is plotting a terrorist attack, he decides to infiltrate and expose them, hoping the resultant fame will be enough to salvage his career. Now he must survive the murderous fanatics of the Cult, expose its powerful backer, and evade governmental authorities who would be all too eager to hang him if they learned he had 'joined' the Cult. It's the toughest Game Greengrass has ever played... and if he loses this time, he won't live long enough to try again.

Non-canon Lunaverse story.

This story is a sequel to Just Us Little Ponies


Raindrops likes being the strongest mare in town, if for no other reason than her vast strength helps her to guard her little brother, Snails, from those who would harm him. But when one of Equestria's most powerful warriors shows up in Ponyville, Raindrops finds that a strong right hook alone isn't always enough to protect those she loves. Her new opponent claims that Raindrops hurt her own little brother and insists that they duel, but though Raindrops knows she can't possibly win such a challenge, she also knows that Snails may wind up in the crossfire if she doesn't deal with this new enemy immediately. Raindrops soon learns that force of arms won't work, and neither will any other trick in her playbook. However, the magic of friendship might just enable her to prevail... and perhaps solve another brewing crisis in Ponyville's farming community while she's at it. Lunaverse story.

All Carrot Top wanted was a vacation, but when the Tyrant Sun appears and lays siege to the industrial city of Stalliongrad, the simple carrot farmer finds herself in way over her head. Trapped far from home, with only a few friends beside her, Carrot Top must help marshal the city's defenses and keep the civilians safe--both from the implacable monster outside the walls, and the increasingly unstable chaos within them. Between dwindling supplies, a Discordian anarchist, insane sun cultists, and a city government that refuses to believe the walls could fall, the farmer will have to overcome a host of problems in order that the innocent ponies survive the coming disaster. But overcome them she must, because the coldest city in Equestria will otherwise go up in flames... and will take one million ponies with it.

Lunaverse story, set at the end of the 'Winter' portion of Season 2. Note that RDD has reserved judgement on whether or not this story is canonical.

Everypony loves Cheerilee -- except, apparently, for an old friend of hers from college, who has just returned to Ponyville with a score to settle! It's a wild race around town as Cheerilee attempts to flee her former companion long enough to figure out what, exactly, she did -- she was a bit drunk at the time, and her memories are rather hazy -- and how she can make it up to her. Not to worry, though: if Cheerilee can't set things right, her students are happy to help out!

...for a generous definition of 'help.'
