    Story: Memoirs of a Magic Earth Pony (Update Part 42-43!)


    [Slice of Life][Sad]

    Author: The Lunar Samurai

    Description: My name is Starswirl and I am an earth pony. This is a collection of stories about my life. As I reflect on the events that have brought me to this home by the sea, I can only hope for one thing; that my life be viewed as ordinary and plain, but my work in theoretical magic be held the highest regard. I placed so much effort into my studies in theoretical magic that it would be a shame to let my work be lost somewhere in the sands of time.

    Story: Split Second (Update: Sequel Part 22!)


    [Alternate Universe][Adventure][Dark]

    Author: wille179


    Description:
    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.

    Story: The Mare Who Once Lived on the Moon (Update Part 3!)


    [Romance]

    Author: MrNumbers

    Quote: Even from the very beginning, this story's ability to turn simple events into engaging prose is is really impressive.  Highly recommended.  ~Pre-reader Pabst


    Description:
    In a world of brass and steam, Twilight Sparkle had thought she had made a life-changing discovery with the invention of the telescope.
    In a very real sense, she was correct.
    Now her discovery has not only changed her life, but the lives of those she seeks out in her desperate attempt to contact the only other creature as lonely as Twilight herself.
    It all would have been much simpler, but it had to be the one Twilight could only call The Mare on the Moon.
    Decidedly not within walking distance, then
    .
