I think pony fanfiction is about to break some sort of word creation barrier. We had seventeen new stories submitted today.
Good thing story updates slide right on through! Have some after the break.

Flash forward to the present day. The First is long dead and the Second is now a decoration in Celestia's sculpture garden. The land has been at peace for years, but now things are stirring again. A break in at the royal archives results in the theft of the ancient Reaper's Horn, an entity is released which seeks out the surviving human, a young colt learns of the legends of humanity and becomes enraptured with them, and a brotherhood of thirteen ponies of varying ages and backgrounds all come together with the sole intention of releasing the human of legend from his stone prison. And all throughout, one of the few surviving ponies who was there when this first began is left to ask herself, "Just what were they anyway?"

When he meets a certain blue Pegasus stallion buying a pie at Sweet Apple Acres while he just so happens to be staying there, he discovers feelings he never knew he had.
Unfortunately, they happen to be the same ones he was always taught to suppress.
Can Soarin convince him that it's not wrong to be in love, and that, sometimes, in order to be happy, you need to break out of your comfort zone?
A story about discovering who you are, and being that person, no matter what others tell you to be.
