    Story: Cold Light (Update Part 12!)


    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: The Necromancer's Ambition (Update Story 2 Part 8!)


    Author: Kuroi Tsubasa Tenshi
    Description: Necromancers. Sickly ponies bathed in cloaks of darkness, bringing ruin to all who fall under their shadow, terror to those who meet their gaze. Ripping the dead from the grave and conscripting them to their army of evil and conquest. Woe to the towns that dare draw their interest.

    Such are the legends.

    This is a story about one of the kindest ponies I know.

    Story: dC/dt ≠ 0 (Update Part 16!)

    [Slice of Life]

    Author: Zeroxion564

    Description: "I asked a changeling once why they would think peace with Equestria was possible. Their response was the title to this book. I had asked a question on politics and gotten a calculus equation in response. Changelings are odd like that sometimes. They see things differently than the rest of us. I ended up pondering his response for a long time and even dusted off my old calculus books to look for an answer. One day it just clicked in my head what he was trying to say. 
    Changelings are capable of change. 
    It was a somewhat redundant answer, and it was a really bizarre way to give it, but I understood what he meant. Changelings, just like ponies, are capable of both good and bad, We could make peace with them, and help them learn to better themselves. That was what the changelings wanted, and ponies everywhere were fighting it. It is for that reason I began creating this book. Within this tome you will find a collection of essays, more like candid stories really, directly from Princess Twilight Sparkle, the Princess of Friendship, and Prince Morpheus, leader of the Changeling Hive. These reports detail their lives from the day negotiations began. That is the day the Prince himself began living in Ponyville, and it comes with the story of how he and the little town came to adapt to each other as negotiations were occurring. It is my hope seeing their story will show anypony reading this there is no reason to distrust the changelings so, and, perhaps, it will give you insight into the strange little changelings as well. They truly want peace, and, despite the treaties being signed, we can only truly give it to them when we let go of our distrust."
