Seeing Pink: Chapter OneCheese Sandwich had just arrived on top of a hill above Ponyville and was watching the sleeping town from afar. The thatched rooftops could only be seen when the dim moonlight was set upon them.
Cheese didn't know the time, but he was guessing it was near 2 am.
Why had he come back again to the source of his inspiration? He thought he had gotten his closure last time he came here.
Regret filled the lanky stallion, who was dressed in a grey hat and a poncho, patterned with different shades of grey.
"Should we turn back, Boneless Two? ... Nah, it's no use going back now", Cheese said to his rubber chicken on a tiny saddle, or rather to himself, since his companion was just a rubber chicken.
A while ago Cheese was still sleeping under a tree near Las Pegasus after a long day of walking, planning epic parties and partying in said parties.
Suddenly his Cheesy Sense had gone off and woken him up to tell him to go to Ponyville, but this wasn't the usual kind of doozy he gets for parties in th
What Hurts the Most Part ConclusionIt was easier for her to move through the thick underbrush in the forest than it was for Big Macintosh. He lumbered through clumsily, just keeping her in sight. And then just like that she was gone. He stopped to look around, panic rising. She was still crying somewhere up ahead. And so he pushed on, breaking through to the more sparse part of the forest, just before it turned back into a field on one side and Ponyville on the other. She was crouched down at the edge of the stream, legs tucked under her, wings folded tight against her small body. Her turquoise eyes were locked on her own reflection, watching herself as the rain fell down around her.
The ground had to have been cold underneath her and Big Macintosh felt the need to scoop her up and protect her from the elements. She looked so much like Fluttershy that this past year had made it hard to look at her for long, let alone be a real father to her. Her yellow coat that faded to orange then red at her ears and the tips of her w
What Hurts the Most Part 2The ground was saturated and sodden from the excessive amount of rain they'd gotten that year. There were small hoofprints in the mud, leaving a trail where Apple Bloom and the rest of the girls had run off together to go play. Beautiful flowers of purple and white grew out of the middle of a rain puddle, defiant against the odds of drowning instead of living. Fluttershy sighed softly in the crisp Spring morning air. It was going to be a lovely day once the sun came out. And there was so much to be done! After a week of straight rain she would have so many animal homes to check on. Rebuilding some would be inevitable, as would helping to gather food and then restocking her own supplies.
With a creak, the screen door opened behind her and she was joined by Applejack. "'Bout time Rainbow called off that storm," the earth pony mumbled sleepily. "Wonder how much damage it did to the crops."
"They looked fine to me," offered Fluttershy with a timid smile. "Oh, I hope you don't mind. I was u
Seeing Pink: Chapter SixThe scent of farm air reached Cheese Sandwich's nose. It was a mixture of dirt and tree sap with a hint of manure. Cheese scrunched his muzzle at the rather unpleasant smell. There was whiff of fresh-baked pastry in it too. Pinkie Pie caught that particular whiff too as they reached a point on the hilly road where the Apple family house could be seen.
"I hope Applejack has made her delicious apple pie again!" Pinkie squealed and sped up to a gallop which Cheese soon followed.
They walked up to the door and were ready to knock it when a southern voice greeted them from behind: "Howdy, folks! Y'all here fer apple pie?"
Pinkie and Cheese turned around to face the orange earth pony. She looked like she'd been working for a long time. Her mane was wet with sweat and she had a few bruises on her legs from bucking apples all morning.
"Hi, Applejack! We're here for several things and one of them is certainly pie!" Pinkie said.
"Well c'mon in then!" Applejack chuckled and opened the door for th

Princess Celestia and her husband Prince Solaris, the princess and prince of the sun, and the older sovereigns of Equestria, were winding down another very busy day. Between trade agreements with the Griffon Nations to the north and disputes over a rising industrial nation to the east, Celestia and Solaris were about ready to lower the sun and retire for the night.
When the last appointment for the day was led out of the throne room, Celestia and Solairs stood and stretched just as a swirl of green smoke drifted in front of them and coalesced into a scroll. Celestia grabbed it with her magic before it could fall and unfurled it as she sat down. "Look at this, Solaris. A letter just came in today." Celestia said to her husband. Prince Solaris raised an eyebrow and said "Well, who's it from?" His wife looked at the signature at the end. "Why it's from my faithful student, Twilight Sparkle!" Princess Celestia said with a smile. Prince Solaris then sat down n
Golden Crests and Apple Pie 4"Um... Rainbow Dash? Are you sure that idea's safe?"
"Eh, safety's overrated." The cyan pegasus replied, waving a dismissive hoof in the air.
Fluttershy struggled to keep up with her friend, her yellow wings beating as hard as they could in a simple effort to not fall behind. "Oh... Well, I mean, if you don't mind me saying... don't you think it's a little... extreme?" She cringed at her own choice of words. "... I'm sure Soarin' will like the tricks you can already do." Rainbow braked in mid flight, and Fluttershy yelped when she almost slammed into her.
"...Like? LIKE?! Fluttershy, he has to LOVE them!" She turned on her friend with the most panic-stricken, serious face that Fluttershy had ever seen on her. "If he doesn't love them, how could he ever consider me a good candidate for the Wonderbolts?! Or..Or worse! What if he doesn't want to hang out with me because he thinks I'm too lame?!! What if the other Wonderbolts find out and not want me to join because of my lameness?! What i
Bride of Discord: Chapter 6-The Decision"I hope we don't run into any Timberwolves," Fluttershy quivered as she and her friend trudged through the Everfree forest.
"Don't worry," Applejack assured her. "If we come across those critters, I'll take care of 'em."
They approached the zebra's tree and knocked on the door.
"Who is coming to say hi?" Zecora asked as she opened the door. "Why, it's dear Applejack and Fluttershy. Won't you come in with me and have some tea?"
She poured them both a cup of tea, which eased their nerves a bit.
"It is wonderful to see your face, now what brings you here to my place?"
Fluttershy was too nervous to speak, so Applejack explained for her. "As you may have noticed, Discord's back."
The zebra narrowed her eyes and stomped her hoof on the table. "I am fully aware that creature's in town, when I came to find my hut upside-down!"
The southern pony glanced around at the mess of broken bottles and turned over furniture. "Yeah, I can see that. I'm sure you heard of his…demands?"
Winter Loving (Fluttermac story) part 1"Here ya are Miss Fluttershy." The red Stallion said to the yellow pegasus. "T-Thanks Big Mac... you can put the apples right there if you want...I can bring them inside myself." She stummered. "I don' mind!" Mac said as he carried the basket of Apples into Fluttershys house and put it down in the kitchen. "S-Sorry for making you go through all that trouble...I understand it must get really cold for you in the winter and you had to carry that basket all the way here..." She squeaked softly. "It anit Nuthin' Miss Fluttershy, Keeping all the ponies fed and your animals heathly are mort important than me." Big Mac smiled at her. "I-Is...There anyway i can repay you Mac?" Fluttershy asked quietly. "How 'bout some hot chocolate later tonight?" he asked. "Sounds goo--od!" She smiled. "See ya then" he left and walked back towards the barn.
~Big Mac's POV~
'The snow reminds me of her for some reason...' he thought to himself as he walked into the barn to find his sister AppleJack. "He h
