Vesperal Breeze is an odd stock: a workaholic pegasus skilled in dream magic. She's recently found patronage in House Heart (one of Canterlot's oldest noble families) on the condition she helps solve a supernatural murder.

Oh, there's also a few rowdy heirs to the family whom Vesperal has to help look after. But mostly she's here for the murder-solving thing.


A gift to my good friend Jaded Hearts, starring his OC in a decidedly NOT CANON side story. For the true adventures of Vesperal Breeze, check out her prologue story Available At The Library and her first proper tangle with a nightmare monster in Under The Influence.

Maudie Pie can't get over her younger sister's colorless coltfriend. Even more worrisome is this isn't the first divide between herself and stoic little Pinkamena.

Is Maudie out of touch? Or is her flighty anxiety just acting up again? The best advice would come from a theoretical pony who thinks like Mena but acts like Maudie.

Good thing some sisterly bonds can hop between realities.

Pinkamena just wants to stay in her own lane. If Pinkie has a problem that needs yelled at, kicked at, or jeeringly tolerated until it goes away, she can handle it. But what’s a sourfaced split personality to do when her agreeable half vanishes overnight like a fart in the wind?

Pinkamena is not a sleuth. Nor a convincing actress. But she’ll need to be both to guise as Pinkie and solve the mystery of where her better half went.

What a pain in the flank.

(Teen rating for Pinkamena’s crassness and comically short temper.)


Its National Novel Writing Month! I'm breaking my regular short story conventions for a multi-chapter tale of fumbling comedy, uneasy mystery, and (most frightful of all) first-person narration.

It was a major shake-up for most ponies: the loss of magic from Equestria. But for Cozy Glow, it just meant swapping her enchanted stone prison for a normal ball-and-chain one. Besides, that was ten years ago. What does she care of the humbled world outside? Or that it just delivered her an uppity new cellmate?

Luster Dawn cares. A lot. It's why she's here.


(Takes place between The Last Problem and Gen 5, natch. AU Tag because these events are probably gonna get invalidated by canon someday.)


Second place winner of the 3rd Annual Cozy Glow Short Story Contest, double-dipping prompts with "Cozy's got a secret!" and "Cozy makes an unusual friend."

Its been hectic, but Spike has finally settled in as Equestria's inter-species ambassador. His latest (and trickiest) meeting is with an eccentric equine hailing from Discord's dimension. She seems to want help with a personal problem.

I don't write Screwball stories often, since she strains my brain to its creative limit. Let's see if Spike fields her any better than I do.

An idle mind is a dangerous thing, and Zipp Storm is a detective with no current cases. In the dog day doldrums of summer, suspicions sometimes see signs that aren't there.

Unless of course Zipp is right, and Pipp really is possessed by a ghostly diva from centuries past.


Contains: Paranormal (in)activity, supercharged imaginations, out-of-character creepiness, and Pipp chasing clout via memes.

In Equestria, when it rains it pours. A recent barrage of threats has included an evil queen from the moon, an invasion of shapeshifting bugs, and even a rampaging god of chaos.

Some days, Twilight Sparkle wishes there was an easy fix for it all. Some sort of rainbow laser that could solve any conflict. But wishful fantasizing doesn't keep ponies protected; hooves on the ground do.

Only guards like Twilight can keep Ponyville safe. Still, she won’t say no if a few locals offer help...

"Maud Pie has never felt so complete, so real to me." - mushroompone

"One of the most unique takes on Maud Pie that I think I have ever seen." - The Red Parade


Maud Pie keeps her burdens under wraps. A gloomy bus ride sits her still as a statue, waiting for stop number twelve. But the foundation cracks after a familiar face prances aboard

Teen rating for light language, allusions to alcohol, a fight scene, and Maud generally being too hard on herself.

This story is a sequel to In Search of Sand and Signs


It took a lot of encouragement from his energetic marefriend, but Sandstone Shine has finally made the move to Equestria. Together with Sapphire, he's half of a strange pair in a familiar land. Might as well settle in with a day out. See what the city of Canterlot has to offer.


This fic is a gift to the artist Ahobo, whose sketchpad gave life to my Seapony OC. Now I happily reciprocate by bringing his OCs to the page. But of course I'm not the first; Sapphire and Sandstone's treasure-hunting origin occurs in the linked prequel fic. Reading it is only necessary to understand the epilogue.
