    Story: Pony Age: Origins (Update Part 32!)

    [Crossover][Adventure][Grimdark] I think this time slot is dedicated to throwing random crossovers out and seeing how you guys react.  Naruto didn't work so well yesterday, but the pre-readers actually liked this one! (I honestly gambled with the Naruto one since no one would review it, sorry :p)

    Story: Fragment (Update Part 6!)


    Author: Heliostorm
    Description: The arrow of time moves from past to future. Try to change what’s set in stone, and causality loops as a circle. But with the twist of a paradox and reality twins. The journey of life doubles, and what might have become, is...

    Much further downstream the river of time, a desperate experiment has unexpected consequences. An unwilling traveler of time and space, Twilight Sparkle becomes face-to-face with herself in an Equestria utterly unfamiliar to her. Gargantuan machines scar the land roaring into the chaos of war, great engines drive the sun and moon across an unfamiliar sky, and the spectre of Discord’s thousand-year reign haunts the landscape, threatening to drown all that stands. The legacy of the mysterious disappearance of Princesses Celestia and Luna over a thousand years ago.

    For one Twilight Sparkle, it is all she knows. But the other can see all that is wrong with the world. Equestria shattered, the Elements of Harmony broken, a world torn by unrelenting storms of chaos magic. As the earth-shaking tremors of a Rune War rage, Twilight Sparkle must teach her other self the power of friendship, and bring dawn to a dying world...

    Author: Soundslikeponies
    Description: Celestia awakens to see an empty world, white sandstone stretching the horizon. She wanders the world as she builds it from her imagination, filling it with life, but as time passes, the world that she created begins to seem like little more than a lucid dream, conjured from the dust.

    Story: Omega (Update Part 11!)


    Author: Goldenwing
    Description: Dissero is just a simple merchant unicorn, leading his four friends around Equestria on the same boring, routine routes, make the same trades, scratching out a living in his airship and living as pitifully close as he can to his dreams. But all it took was one mistake, and now he and his friends are stuck outside Equestria, in the cruel and unknown Outer World, with the most dangerous crimelord known to ponykind hot on his tail and nothing but his crew and the ship they've stolen to keep them alive.

    Story: The Eversleep (Update Story 2 Part 28!)

    [Grimdark][Sad][Normal] I don't see how something can be all three of those tags, but, alright.

    Description: When the world turns upside down for the Kingdom of Equestria, is
    it impossible for it to recover? When final words are spoken, all of
    Equestria will be forced to take sides. A select few must shoulder the
    burden of restoring balance to the kingdom, doing whatever it takes to
    bring back the peace, risking the sacrifice of all they hold dear.

    Story: A Heart as Black as Night (Update Part 2!)


    Author: Fellstorm
    Description: History remembers King Sombra (when it remembers him at all) as a slavering beast so consumed by his lust for power that he plunged an entire empire into ruin. But who was Sombra? Why did he do what he did? What did he even do?

    Nopony is born evil and Sombra was no exception. He was once the star pupil of Princess Luna, back in the golden age before her banishment. He had friends. He had love. He had tragedy and loss and betrayal. He had all of this and more long before he had...

    Story: The Coltbert Report (Update Part 3!)

    [Comedy][Adventure][Crossover] It's about time we got a fic like this. It only took you all two years.

    Author: ABagOVicodin
    Description: Princess Celestia is losing control of her political power. The system is slowly crumbling due to the inverse relationship between harmony and freedom.

    With the invitation of television sets, the internet, and instant coffee machines, freedom becomes the preferred theme of the Celestian empire as opposed to harmony.

    With no other options (or perhaps due to a stroke of genius), Princess Celestia brings a self proclaimed expert on freedom to Equestria along with his entire family to create a new show with familiar roots: The Coltbert Report.

    How will his family handle the new Equestrian life? Will Stephen Coltbert be able to return harmony to the land with his mixture of satire and wit? Only time and hundreds of episodes will tell.

    Join Stephen Coltbert as he provides the conservative viewpoint on Equestria so that you don't have to.

    Zecora, the zebra shamaness has lived in the Everfree Forest for some time, but has never gone beyond except for the sake of finding roots and herbs for her potion that her woods cannot supply.

    Stopping at Sweet Apple Acres for a minute to speak with Applejack, she catches the eye of Macintosh. The stallion falls for Zecora at first sight and then does something very poorly thought out to prove himself to her...

    Story: The Immortal Game (Update Part 24!)

    [Adventure][Grimdark] We sure do get a lot of grimdark lately. It's surprising too, most of the pre-readers dislike it!

    Author: AestheticB
    Description: Long ago, in the magical land of Equestria, there lived a powerful King and his dark Queen. Immortal and ignorant, their end came at the hooves of their daughters, Celestia and Luna, who sought to build a better future for ponykind.

    Now ponykind’s old gods have returned.

    Twilight Sparkle is trapped inside her own mind, slave to a cruel and impulsive consciousness built from everything she is not. Powerless and voiceless, she must find a way to stop the being that calls itself Nihilus from destroying everything she holds dear.

    Luna is tasked with assembling the remaining Elements of Harmony in hopes of freeing their leader. For if ponykind is to have any hope, it is in Twilight Sparkle. And if Twilight Sparkle is to have any hope, it is in her five friends.

    Facing her father in mortal combat, Celestia must do everything she can to ensure that ponykind has the tools to survive before she falls. With inevitable defeat bearing down upon her, she makes the first move in the oldest and deadliest game known to creation.

    Story: Unmarked (Update Part 20!)


    Author: Croswynd
    Purpose. In Equestria, where purpose is defined by the mark on your flank, it is often taken for granted. Yet Novell has grown to adulthood without a single explanation of where he fits in. It’s not until a chance meeting with a particular Professor that he gets the opportunity to explore the world and find out exactly where he belongs. Of course, adventuring has a host of its own problems, as this blank flank is about to find out!
