Spike has always lived among ponies, who don't know much about dragons. There was lots of guesswork involved in raising him. He had to be his own baseline for expectations. Then he met other dragons, and found out how different his upbringing made him. But he was so busy with social differences, no one noticed another key difference...

When the Windigos attacked, the ponies had to find a way to put an end to the distrust and anger that fed the frozen fiends. The unicorns found a way. No more earth ponies, no more pegasi, no more problem.

A thousand years later, Princess Twilight Sparkle thinks that her ancestors may have made a mistake. Fortunately, she knows a way to test her hypothesis. She names that way 'Rainbow Dash.'

Discord has a problem. He has a tendency to not think through his actions all that well, poor impulse control, and no ability to figure out how others will feel about what he does. Even with a friend helping him, sooner or later he's going to do something that'll get him stoned or hit with a reforming spell or whatnot. So what's he to do? Ask the smartest pony in Equestria for a solution, of course!

He probably wasn't expecting to get "Have Celestia let you rule Equestria again" for a response.

No one else was probably expecting to enjoy it.

Now with a reading by Crafty Arts!

Spike The Dragon has always loved to eat gems, but he'll eat vegetables and rocks as well. He's even tried fish, since Twilight joined Herd Bellerophon with its pegasus and human members. But now he's accidentally found out what meat tastes like.

What ponies taste like.

Fortunately, you get to decide how it all turns out! A Choose-Your-Own-Ending-I-Don't-Care story!

Sometimes, things work out better than expected. Sometimes… they don’t. And sometimes you need a little help to make it all work out in the end.

The Mage. The Farmer. The Daredevil. The Party Pony. The Animal Caretaker. The Fashionista. They're always there. What spirit takes on each role can change. Some combinations work out even better than the world where Twilight Sparkle became an alicorn. Some combinations work out much, much worse. Princess Luna guards the places between - and so do all the other Princess Lunas. When one calls out for help, another responds.

Xenophile sociology applies, and a version of Lero did get found in the Everfree in both of these realities, but don't plan on seeing HiE.

Prince Blueblood is a useless noble. He's always been a useless noble. The Blank Plague made him, briefly, a useful noble. He needs someone to talk to about that, but who's got enough rank for him? How about the one-time Viceroy of Canterlot? And will it do any good? He is Blueblood, after all.

Few ponies in Canterlot and Ponyville still suffer from the Blank Plague, but there's one very important exception. Princess Luna sequestered herself away from pony contact so she could raise the sun and the moon by herself while Celestia was ill. But Luna cannot live alone forever, so she must expose herself to the plague and endure its effects just as Celestia and Cadence did, while Celestia resumes commanding the sun and the moon once more.

Bellerophon Michaelides, the only human in Equestria, hence the only being immune to the magic-devouring plague, must tend to Luna as he tended to Celestia, with a recovering Twilight Sparkle staying by his side. But Luna has other duties beyond moving heavenly bodies, and dreams do not abide the light of day. Darkness does not rest lightly.

When a magic-devouring plague comes to Equestria, not even alicorns are immune. To ensure the sun will rise again, the only wholly non-magical citizen of Equestria must put aside his personal feelings and serve the crown.

Gus, an engineering student, suffers a life-changing accident. While trying to recover, he finds himself waking up, being prodded by some sort of black and white animal. The next thing he knows, he's in a hospital with more animals around him and one human... and Ponyville is about to find out just what a scientific education means back where Lero's from.

At least Twilight will be thrilled.

The Crystal Empire sleeps beneath the ice and snow of the north. The Lost Heart lies somewhere in Equestria. One small border outpost escaped megaspells and glaciers alike, and there the last waking descendants of the Crystal Ponies do their best to survive on the edges of the Wasteland. Their hopes lie with the Searchers - those rare ponies whose destinies are tied to finding the Lost Heart.

Spinel Stride is the first Searcher in two generations. With no clues to go on, all he knows is that the two curved black lines on his flank are telling him his destiny. To find the Lost Heart and fill that empty space inside. But even if he finds it, where can he find the love of a princess to make it shine?

And who is this odd little pony he keeps bumping into?
