    Story: Cold Light (Update Part 11!)


    Author: Scramblers and Shadows

    Description: Ponies discovered the world of Amaranth three years ago -- a desert world filled with the ancient and mysterious artefacts of a dead civilisation. It has become the new frontier: Salvor airships seek riches, sky pirates prey on the weak, and idealists seek to unify the disparate.
    Scootaloo, now a young mare, has gone missing in Amaranth. Sweetie Belle follows, in search of her friend, but stumbles upon the secret behind Amaranth -- and soon finds herself the target of a number of powerful and dangerous ponies, and in the midst of a plot that could destroy Equestria.

    Story: Split Second (Update: Sequel Part 21!)

    [Alternate Universe][Adventure][Dark]

    Author: wille179

    Twilight Sparkle broke time when she got her cutie mark. Now Twilight and Sparkle are sisters from another time. Twilight is hailed as the potentially greatest light magician of all time, and already has a reputation as a hero by the time she goes to Ponyville. This isn't quite her story, not entirely.
    Sparkle is an orphan - her dark magic killed her parents. She lives with her brother in Canterlot's industrial sector because they can't afford anything better. She can't leave either. She's a natural dark mage; while Sparkle won't go mad like Sombra, her reputation is hardly any better. Worse, the law doesn't see her as a good pony.
    The fact that the dead don't stay dead around her, or that Thorn - Spike's double - is an undead, soul-eating abomination, are other matters altogether.

    Description: Twilight Sparkle is an expert in unicorn magic, but earth pony magic remains a mystery to her. The books in her library have very little information about the earth tribe's abilities, other than their famous strength. Twilight is determined to uncover their secrets. What she learns will change her life. And it just might change Applejack's life as well.

    Story: Firefly - Whole New Verse (Update Sequel Part 4!)


    Author: psychicscubadiver

    They say that Equestria was a paradise. I don’t know if that’s true, but I wanna believe it. There sure ain’t one in this piece of the ‘verse. Maybe we coulda built one if it weren’t for the damned Confederation. Those bastards wanted every planet in the system under their hoof and wouldn’t take no for an answer. The outer planets fought ’em, and we lost.
    It’s tough to get by these days with Confederation lawkeepers looking for an excuse to crack down, bandits and thieves crawling everywhere the Confederation’s not, and the Jesters prowling around the edges of civilized space. Honest work’s hard to come by, and honest folk are twice as rare. Still, a mare has to make a livin’ somehow. So that’s what I do.
    Find a crew. Find a job. Keep flying. – Rainbow Dash, Captain of Tranquility

    Story: Expedition (Update Part 23!)


    Author: Raugos

    Description: For centuries, countless griffons have braved the depths of the Abysmal Abyss in the hopes of recovering the Idol of Boreas, never to return. But now stories have surfaced that someone came close to bringing back the legendary artefact, and one group of explorers is willing to try again where others have failed, for a chance at restoring Griffonstone’s lost glory once and for all. Unfortunately, success may hinge on them first getting into that friendship thing that dumb ponies seem to love so much.
