    The Canterlot Library was the only building Nightmare Moon tried to preserve. The gardens had gone almost immediately—much to that animal lover’s dismay—and the rest of the city wasn’t worth her time unless there were rebels hiding in it. The royal palace was mostly undamaged, if only because no enemy had ever reached it, but the library held something of value—knowledge. Nightmare’s powers were formidable, but it was her studies that really gave her an edge. She had learned everything about every town and city in Equestria just by reading the reports they used to send to her sister, which gave her a crushing advantage when somepony decided to rise against her.
    The problem with Zebrica, of course, was that few ponies knew much about it, and fewer still took the time to write that knowledge down. Most of the records she found were vague and incomplete legends written by ponies who had obviously taken too much poetic l

Dragon's Den
    “Thank you for coming on such short notice,” said Colonel Glade as Scootaloo and a very unhappy Gilda landed in the Dragon’s Den. He was large for a griffon, but his tail was a little too short. Gilda had told her once that he lost the end of his tail in a fight with a dragon, but Scootaloo didn’t know whether to believe her or not. “I know you’ve been busy training the new recruits, but I have an urgent mission for both of you.”
    “Does it involve sleeping?” Gilda mumbled. She was a little steadier than before, but Scootaloo could tell a massive headache was on its way.
    Colonel Glade sighed. “Sergeant, how much did the captain drink tonight?”
    “It’s difficult to say, sir,” Scootaloo replied. “She had seventeen shots of something. I’m not sure what.”
    “Captain, I’m tired of talking to you about your drinking problem,” the colonel sa

    Yesterday, the bar had been filled with noisy newcomers, bright-eyed and eager to defend their home against Nightmare Moon. That was before Gilda and Scootaloo put them through training. Now, only a few were present, quietly complaining and stretching sore wings and limbs. “Do you ever wonder if you’re too hard on them on the first day?” Scootaloo asked between swigs of her apple cider.
    “Tough love, Scoots. We gotta weed out the weak ones while we can, ‘cause we don’t want Nightmare Moon to do it for us,” Gilda replied, downing her fourth shot of some foul-smelling concoction she’d come up with during her spare time. Scootaloo had asked her earlier what it was. She told her every shot was the cure for one idiot recruit and promptly ordered seventeen of them.
    “I know, but I wonder if a gentler approach would be better in the long run,” Scootaloo said, staring pensively at her wooden mug. “Rainbow

Faces of Love - Twilight's Spark
    The reporter lifted a fresh notebook from his saddle bag before asking his next question. “Luna, what do you miss the most?”
    Luna let out a heavy sigh. “I miss a lot of things. I miss our old home in Everfree. To some extent, I miss the unwavering trust of my subjects. But I think of all the things I have lost, the one I miss the most is friendship.”
    The reporter blinked. “Friendship, your highness?”
    “Yes. I had many friends before I was banished. They looked up to and trusted me, and I betrayed them.”
    “They never blamed you, Luna,” Celestia said. “No more than they blamed themselves.”
    “I know.” Luna bowed her head. “That is what bothers me the most. For the rest of their lives, they had to feel guilt for my foolish mistakes.”
    “You mustn’t think like that,” Celestia insisted

Faces of Love - Fluttershy's Angel
    “Celestia, you’ve seen the development and evolution of the lore surrounding Nightmare Moon. Did the things ponies said about your sister ever bother you?”
    “Yes, but not for the reason you think,” Celestia answered. “Much of what they say is true. What bothered me was that I knew a side of Luna few others did. I suppose you could say I knew the whole truth, not the partial truth everypony could see.”
    “Did you ever harbor resentment toward your sister for what she did?”
    Celestia was silent for a moment, and her gaze fell to the floor. “No,” she said at last.
    “Why not?”
    Celestia now looked at Luna. “Because she’s my sister, and I could never remain angry at her for long.”

    Going to the market was still somewhat of a scary proposition for Fluttershy. Iron Will’s misguided assertiveness

Faces of Love - Dash's Rainbow
    “Something I have learned since my banishment is that love must be earned,” Luna said. “It takes effort and hard work and does not always come easily.”
    “And how do you plan to win the heart of Equestria?”
    Luna smiled and looked at the floor. “If I knew that, I would not have been banished in the first place.”

    Rainbow Dash had a reputation for finding creative ways to enter buildings, but today, she decided to just use the front door. The library’s interior was strewn with books, as usual, and its keeper was sitting in the center, looking over four at once.
    “Hey, Twi,” Dash said, stepping around a large stack of notes.
    “Huh?” Twilight blinked and looked around. The books fell to the floor. “Oh, hello, Rainbow. What can I do for you?”
    Dash managed to squeeze between two stacks of books without kn

Faces of Love - Rarity's Gem
    “What was it like returning to Equestria after so much time?” the reporter asked.
    “It was… surprising,” Luna answered, thinking back to that fateful Sumer Sun Celebration. “Once Twilight Sparkle and her friends restored me to my proper state of mind, I expected to be locked away. Instead, I was made a guest of honor at the Celebration.”
    “It was only right that our subjects become reacquainted with their princess of the night,” Celestia added.
    Luna nodded. “My reception in Ponyville was unexpected, to say the least. I do not think they realized I was once the Nightmare Moon of legend, but even so, the way they accepted me that day gave me hope that I could leave my past behind me.”
    “And have you?”
    “Well,” Luna said, “that remains to be seen.”

Faces of Love - Pinkie's Pie
    The reporter cleared his throat as his pen came to a stop. “Luna, we’ve all heard the story of Nightmare Moon, but we’ve never had the chance to hear your side of the story—not publicly, anyway.”
    “The legend is a fair retelling, as far as I can tell,” Luna replied. “Aside from the story of Nightmare Night, I have not found any significant errors.”
    “If I may, princess, why did you become Nightmare Moon?”
    Luna took a deep breath and bowed her head to hide her grimace. “I have reflected on this subject since I returned to Equestria, and I have come to the conclusion that youthful ignorance was the main culprit.”
    “Could you explain?”
    Luna shifted a little on her haunches and glanced at Celestia, who gave her a reassuring smile and a small nod. “I was focused on myself and what I wanted and not on the needs and

Faces of Love - Applejack's Orchard
    The recording device whirred quietly while the reporter found a blank page in his notepad. “First off, I want to say what an honor it is to be here with you,” he said with a shaky smile.
    “The pleasure is ours,” Celestia replied with a smile of her own, and she meant it. His background check had revealed his extensive experience and overall excellent reporting, though she was still puzzled as to why her aides had thought to include his recent divorce in their report. “I think I speak for both of us when I say this is something we want to share with all of Equestria.”
    The reporter’s smile widened slightly. His pen hovered over his notepad, held in a blue aura. “The first question is for you,” he said. “For a thousand years, you ruled Equestria alone, filling both your responsibilities and your sister’s. Was there ever a time when it was too much for you?”

Griffon's Nest
Griffon's Nest
Six months later
    The Griffon’s Nest wasn’t literally a nest, but rather a codename for a camp hidden in a series of caves in the brownish mountains north of Equestria. It was home to a hundred or so griffon soldiers at any given time, so logically there were several nests in it, but it also held a training ground, a medical ward, a mess hall, and a forge. Captain Gilda was standing in the latter at the moment, waiting for the armor smith to finish fitting her with a new chest plate. “How much longer is this going to take?” she asked.
    “Just a minute more,” the armor smith replied, tightening the chest plate’s straps.
    “This has taken too long already,” Gilda said with a heavy sigh as several griffons flew by in a tight formation. “Look, my lieutenant had to start the exercises without me.”

Three months of winter coldness and still four more to go.
Our feet have almost frozen off from trudging through the snow.
Our financial aid is running out, and a housing crisis looms.
And even though I love my school, it’s hard to beat the gloom.
Well, all of us can’t wait for spring and all things warm and green
But the sunshine will not come ‘till May. It seems like just a dream.
I just can’t help but feel depressed. What can anybody do?
All these new classes have me stressed out. Why do I feel so blue?

Let’s try and have some school cheer!

Their parents shed their tears and say their good-byes.
Pretty soon, their dirty dishes stack a mile high.

The Last Crusade - Prologue
Prologue: Assignment
   Nightmare Moon took her time walking down to the dungeon. There was no rush. There was never a rush now that her enemies were dead and forgotten. To be honest, she missed the excitement of the chase. Ten years ago, when her reign was young and her opponents plentiful, she had made a spectacle of her captured foes, executing them in public in the most lavish and gruesome ways possible, relishing in their agonized screams. Her sister’s star pupil had escaped that purging, but most of her Ponyville friends had not. The farm pony had fallen during the battle, but she’d enjoyed tormenting that pathetic animal lover and annoying fashionista. Their kind would have no place in her new kingdom.
    She assumed the destruction of their home would be enough to keep Twilight and her friends in their places, but they proved to be more resilient than she expected. The uprising five years ago had taken her by surprise, and if not for her

S3E1-2 - My thoughts
-WARNING-THERE WILL BE SPOILERS-
So I just watched the opening for Season 3 of MLP:FiM, and... well, here we go.
I guess I'll attack this from a story perspective, since that's what I'm best at. The overal conflict was just... confusing. A mysterious kingdom appears, and it's up to Twilight and the gang to save it from the evil King Sombra (or Somber, or Sombre, depending on who you ask), who made it dissapear a thousand years ago. Just who is King Sombra, you might ask? Well, he's a powerful unicorn who wants to rule the Crysal Empire because... okay, he's a malevolent shapeshifter trying to...
You know what, the only way I can think to describe him is "an overpowered, underdeveloped red-and-black OC." We're not off to a good start here.
So I guess King Sombra wants to rule the Crystal Empire because... well, slave labor or something. This, for me, is the biggest disappointment, especially since I've torn apart so many overpowered, underdeveloped red-and-black OC's on FIMFiction. Nigh

Well, hello, new diary. It was tough working you into my schedule, but Princess Celestia said I should take a few minutes each day to write down some of my thoughts. I've been pretty busy lately working on a new spell for Nightmare Night. Rainbow Dash always plays pranks on everypony, but this year, I'm going to get her back. I won't give away any spoilers here, but let's just say I think everypony's going to remember it.
Today was pretty average. Spike and I spent all day studying and practicing. He's been working really hard lately, and it's starting to show. I know he's my number one assistant, but ever since we started working on my new spell, he's been acting a little cranky. I think it's because I keep him up too late. I mean, I do ask if he wants to go to bed, but he always says he's fine. Oh well. He is a young dragon, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that he's a little stubborn.
That reminds me, I should schedule a nap time for him. That's sure to make him feel be

Stetson

"The spirits of the Elements of Harmony are right here!"
Applejack wasn't sure what Twilight was talking about, but she knew the unicorn needed her help, and as she took her place beside her newest friend, she knew she wasn't going to back down now. The little piles of stone at Nightmare Moon's hooves began to glow with a mysterious light, much to the dark mare's bewilderment. "Applejack, who reassured me when I was in doubt, represents the spirit of Honesty!" Twilight continued. Several stones began circling the orange earth pony, glowing with a strange orange light.
Twilight continued to highlight each pony's strengths, from Fluttershy's kindness to Rainbow Dash's loyalty. Another orb appeared in the air above her and transformed into a magnificent crown. Together, the six ponies unleashed the magic of the Elements of Harmony, stripping Nightmare Moon of her dark powers once and for all.
The effort took a lot out of them, but it didn't take them long to recover. "Gee, Twilight,"

  • Listening to: The Piano Guys
I usually ignore journal posts on my dA account, since most of them are art contests and my drawing skills have never progressed beyond "advanced stickman." But then I saw this one from Lauren Faust titled How bad do you want to name an alligator Gummy?, and I decided to check it out.

So here's the quick story if you haven't heard. The Wildlife Learning Center is an LA-based animal rescue operation that takes in animals that are injured, abused, or otherwise in need of assistance and a home. The center has been struggling financially and is asking for donations. Faust apparently has connection and, knowing of her large brony following, worked out a deal to have some of the animals named after pony pets Angel, Tank, Owlowicious (which is a nightmare to spell), and, yes, Gummy. Though I doubt the gator in question will be toothless, but whatever.

Oh, and if the center reaches its goal of $48,000, they'll host a party for bronies to meet Tara Strong, Lauren Faust, and the newly named animals. And, of course, all the animals will have someplace to stay and someone to care for them, which is super awesome. Check out Faust's blog (linked above) for more details.

I first started writing when I was in 5th grade. My teacher challenged us to write a short story based on a picture. I wrote a novel. Since then, I've been writing creative short stories and novels. I've also developed an interest in journalism and creative nonfiction. I enjoy good art and music, and I often make my own piano arrangements of songs I like.
