"Why in the world are we here? Surely not to live in pain and fear?" – John Lennon

It's been about a month since Spike went through his molt, and both he and Twilight are still getting used to his newly sprouted wings. Needless to say, the development has brought on quite a few changes; some deliberate, others... not so much.

Of course, with new circumstances come new opportunities. Spike's wings let him fly, obviously, but there's one thing in particular he'd like to learn to do with them. And the lesson starts with one simple question for Twilight:

"Could you teach me how to give a wing-hug?"

As the sun sets on another day in the magical land of Equestria, an era sets along with it. One of the last remaining participants of a bygone age rests idly, bracing themselves to face whatever lies beyond this mortal coil.

Twilight Sparkle is no stranger to death. As an alicorn, one of the immortal rulers and protectors of Equestria, she's seen many dear friends come and go over the countless years. But through it all, there was one confidant she could always find solace in: Spike, her faithful dragon assistant and adoptive little brother.

Alas, not even dragons, long-lived as they are, can endure forever. Now, with mere hours remaining before Spike leaves this world for the next, the time has come for Twilight to bid farewell to the first and last of her very best friends.

In the aftermath of the final round of the Sibling Supreme Competition, Spike has finally found his place in Twilight's family. He now can say, without even the faintest shadow of a doubt, that he is Twilight and Shining Armor's little brother.

Technically, this also means that Twilight Velvet and Night Light are his parents.

And so, as soon as the opportunity presents itself, Twilight and Spike decide to hop aboard the next train to Canterlot and give their parents a visit...

Gallus's childhood wasn't a very happy one, to say the least. With no family to speak of and nogriffon willing to take him in, he was constantly locked in a struggle against his own hunger. Fortunately for the young griffon, doing the odd job or two was enough for him to afford the food sold at the marketplace.

Unfortunately, there were days where that wasn't an option. This is one such day.

After years of back and forward between Twilight Sparkle and her brother Shining Armor, the final round of the Sibling Supreme Competiton has ended, and the true winner has been decided.

And in the end, that honor went to neither of them. Rather, it went to none other than Spike, the young dragon finally gaining recognition as the little brother Shining and Twilight have always had.

A few hours later, Twilight and Spike take the time to ponder how the day's events have changed their perception of the past, and how this new revelation will affect their future.

...Also, Starlight is there.
