"Tales" series minor crossover, largely Tales of Xillia; concepts and abilities such as artes are borrowed and the storyline itself is tailored to reflect the general Tales design.

Twilight Sparkle finds life in Ponyville exciting and enjoyable: every day brings her a new friendship lesson or a challenge to rise to. She is as devoted as ever to living life the way she was taught a good pony should, and making Princess Celestia as proud as she can.
When Princess Celestia recalls her to Canterlot, Twilight discovers that not all of Equestria is as happy as she had once thought. Power outages and failing artes plague larger cities, but Princess Celestia has found a solution that she asks Twilight Sparkle to learn to tap into, so she can begin a New Power Initiative that will heal all of Equestria.
But there are heavy consequences for tapping into powers that ponies were not meant to have...

Commission for Ankaru.

Spike has long been Twilight Sparkle's Number One Assistant, and a helpful hand to all ponies in Ponyville. But he longs to be something more, to feel like an equal, something more than, for example, the babysitter's helper when no one else is available.
But when a camping trip with Marina the Changeling, her partner Moonbeam, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders goes wrong and the CMC are kidnapped by a group of vengeful Diamond Dogs, Spike is given the chance to show what he's truly capable of as he seeks to follow Marina in pursuit of the kidnappers, determined to help her save the young ponies. As his mettle is tested, however, he might discover he is not as strong or as capable as once thought he was, and that his actions may have terrible consequences for the ponies he only ever intended to help.

The Cirque du Noir is a mysterious carnival that parades through Equestria - and some say other worlds! - on a chaotic, winding route, stopping in unpredictable places but always drawing a huge crowd. Ponies have told stories that for a 'small price,' they were granted their fondest desire: other ponies whisper that friends and family have vanished, never to return.
It is said that for the price of a generous act, any pony can have their fondest desire brought to life: for some, this means a joyous, unforgettable day in paradise, while others clutch in their hearts more sinister desires that they all the same must face the consequences of.
But all are welcome: come one, come all, the Cirque du Noir is waiting to bring your deepest secrets to light and life.

Marina Wildheart is a Dragoon Knight who has conquered many foes and well-earned her title of Duchess many times over for her feats of bravery and strength. By her side is her lieutenant and lover, Phantom Wing, a griffin who lost his wings in combat, and who would fearlessly face any evil for her sake.
Still, she never considered marrying him until it was brought up after a briefing: it's hard not to question yourself when you're made of chocolate and powered by Discord's magic, though. And Marina doesn't even know what a wedding entails. Still, if she loves him... love will find a way, won't it?

All anyone really knows is that this story is going to be awesome. I can say that because I am the Narrator, so I know these things. Although I have to put up with the Critic and fear the wrath of The Redacted, we've done this for many years now: taken different ponies, and thrown them together in the pot to create new stories and new plays to entertain ourselves and our audience, and to keep The Redacted pacified. Even we Draconequui have to be wary around certain individuals, after all.
Our play will continue forever; there's no way these ponies could end this neverending story... right?
