This story is a sequel to The Mirror

Check out the blogpost to see the full Cozy Hero continuity this builds on.

It's time for Cozy Glow to get back out in the real world and figure out where she fits into Equestria. She's tried superheroics, supervillainy, and accidentally destroyed the world; now she has to try being normal. Yeah, probably not.

The story of a foal once thought beyond redemption, trying to find a way to fit into society and be okay with herself and her past. But this is not just Cozy's story; her actions and experiences will have a serious impact on the lives and directions of the many ponies she comes into contact with – especially her best friend, Sunset Shimmer, and her adoptive mother, Luna.

Serious thanks to Wanderer D for helping me with this. To say he was prereading would be a gross understatement. If you're one of the few people who haven't discovered him, what are you waiting for? Get over there and follow.

Thanks to Cackling Moron and Nyronus for prereading, your commentary and discussion helped keep this train running.

This story was written at a blazing fast pace for its size and complexity, and is, in many ways, my loveletter to MLP:FIM and the Brony community. Thanks to all of you for being here, being great people, and generally supporting each other.

Chapters (40)

Part of the Cozy Hero continuity.

Cozy Glow awakens from her stone prison to find herself in the care of a strange, taciturn stallion. She soon discovers that the world has changed significantly from what she remembered, and not for the better.

Chapters (9)

Rainbow Dash realizes she may have made a huge oversight in regards to loyalty to her friends. She responds with all the tact and subtlety of a rampaging Ursa.

This was written for Jinglemas 2018.

Chapters (1)

This story is a sequel to The Hero: Cozy Glow...?

In the last story, Cozy Glow became a super hero, mostly due to severe brain damage. You should probably read that before you get any further into this description, because spoilers abound! Part of the Cozy Hero continuity.

Living with Luna's been going pretty well for the filly the past few weeks, but with Hearth's Warming coming up, Luna urges her to go out and make some real friends. Cozy has her hooves full between that, her studies, and her super heroics, but to make matters worse it seems destiny has decided to get involved and dump even more responsibility on her.

Can't a former megalomaniacal psychopath catch a break?


Well, you know what they say. If you can't catch a break, make your own. By breaking things. What? It works for Dash!

If you want more Cozy after reading this, check out The Mirror.

Chapters (10)

(Spoilers for the series finale)

Cozy Glow was supposed to be stripped of her phenomenal, cosmic power when she was defeated.

Instead, she just lost her memory. Having super powers and being pursued by the authorities, she comes to the only obvious conclusion a comic-reading child could:

She's clearly a superhero vigilante!

A trainwreck of idiotic decisions follows.

Part of the Cozy Hero continuity.

Chapters (16)

This story is a sequel to Discord vs. Harmony: The Greeting-Card Industry Strikes Back

Note: Reading the previous fics in this sequence isn't necessary, just adds context. You don't need context, do you? Nahh, you're better than that.

Chrysalis has had on heck of a month. First, Discord makes a game of pairing her up with Starlight Glimmer, which went entirely better than either of them would have ever expected. Then, as their relationship deepened and Chrysalis settled into her new life in Equestria, Starlight suggested she try stand-up comedy with Maud.

Nopony expected Chrysalis to take the offer seriously, least of all me, the author. But here we are. Is their comedy routine worth continuing, or are they about as popular as... well, Maud by herself? You decide. In the comments, I mean; don't keep that to yourself. Story will be updated whenever it amuses me, depending on reader feedback. Feel free to fire off suggestions via private message if you come up with something amusing, and I'll credit you in the author's note. T rated in case the humor gets more adult than an "E" rating will allow.

Chapters (6)

Final story of the Iqqelverse

Are you sure you want to hear this story? Everyone's already got a happy ending, so why can't we just let things be?

Alright, alright... if you're absolutely sure. Let's see, then...

Chapters (5)

This story is a sequel to Discord vs. the Greeting-Card Industry

This is an unauthorized sequel to Fire Gazer the Alchemist's Reticence. If you haven't read that story yet, do! It's absolutely fantastic. I've gone ahead and made this story without approval due to the author's retirement from the site making it difficult to predict if they'll ever be around to give approval. While reading it is probably not 100% necessary to understand this story, it'd make it a lot better at the very least. Plus, reading this will spoil that story. Don't say you weren't warned!

This is also a sequel to Discord vs. The Greeting-Card Industry. It just won't make sense if you didn't read that story.

Discord thought his bet with Greeting-Card was settled. He was satisfied with his work thus-far, but that work wrought unforeseen consequences:

Actual, sincere gratitude and respect on the part of ponies around him.

Well, that's new.

Motivated by this, Twilight's pestering, and the fact that the bet is apparently not yet settled, Discord sets off to meddle in the romantic lives of even more ponies. Yeah, that'll probably be fine.

Chapters (12)

Tom has no idea how he ended up in Equestria. For that matter, he has no idea who he is, or what he was, before he ended up in Equestria.

But he's in Equestria now, and he's a pony, and has no idea how things in this world work. Thankfully, he has one advantage: He can hear commentary by outside observers into this world. Hopefully they'll guide him better than his own lackluster survival instincts would.

Reader comments direct this story. Comments must be in the form of an imperative (i.e. 'do this') for Tom to receive them, generally.

Chapters (8)

Nothing foils a good plan for revenge like having your plot explained to your target, and then being forced to spend time with said target without murdering them.

This is a lesson Chrysalis will learn during one of the strangest days of her life, courtesy of an insane (or possibly just inane) draconequus.

As for Starlight, well, it's not like she was doing anything. What's a guidance counselor in a school of friends even do? Honestly.

TL;DR Discord tries to forcibly ship Starlight Glimmer and Chrysalis.

Now has sequelitis! https://www.fimfiction.net/story/411966/discord-vs-harmony-the-greeting-card-industry-strikes-back
