    Author: Corejo


    Description: Darkness holds dominion over the world. Cinders of Sun and Moon gathered from a long-forgotten catastrophe are all that remain to shelter the village from the consuming void. But their power wanes. Lanterns of Sun and Moon held close against his chest, a stallion takes up the mantle of light bearer and forges into the abyss to return light to a world that has all but forgotten it. Beyond the safety of the village gates, he will meet a voice of shadows and starlight, and many are the revelations it has of the world he thought he knew so well.

    Description: After the Changeling invasion, Celestia and Luna make the decision to have Twilight investigate the Elements of Harmony and solve the mystery of their power. A thousand years later, Rainbow Dash awakens in a world she does not recognize. She has no idea how or why she came to be there. She does not know the language, the geography or any of the rules of this new time. She soon finds allies in Star Fall, a scholarly pegasus whose Talent is Magic, and Astrid, Star Fall's Griffin guardian. Together they set out to discover why Dash has been sent to the future, and how she might return to when she belongs. War threatens the nations, a Nightmare stalks the shadows, and Rainbow Dash's arrival has turned her into a wild card in a deadly game that pits the law on both sides of a broken Equestria against a mysterious criminal figure, Max Cash. Yet the stakes are higher than anyone knows, for in her research Twilight Sparkle discovered a dark secret about the Elements, something that will shake the foundations of the world.

    Story: My Filly, Nightshine (Update Part 11!)



    [Human][Slice of Life]

    Author: The Abyss
    Description: Jason's life has grown dull. While some may have thought that the weekly monster attacks might have kept him on his toes, he had grown to learn that as the norm around town. Now, after months of living in Ponyville, he can't shake the feeling that there is a void in his life. He follows his usual routine every day: breakfast, a quick shower, followed by a quick walk to the park to read the newspaper. One morning, he finds two parents playing with their filly in the playground. As he watches, an idea sparks within his mind: why not adopt a pony of his own?
    My Filly, Nightshine (New Part 11!)

    Story: Faultlines (Update Part 9!)



    [Adventure][Alternate Universe][Dark]

    Author: FawkesThePhoney
    Description:
    How does one start a revolution? By playing on the faultlines, the divisions between the strong and the weak, the poor and the rich, the haves and the have-nots. The fractures along which, with the right pressure, a society can fail.
    It happened, once, to a land now all but forgotten. And it is happening again.
    Discontent spreads amidst the great walled cities of the Mare Veritas as the powers that be fight to keep what they have stolen. Thrust into the midst of this conflict is a group of ponies that would seem to have as little in common as the sun and the moon. But they will have to put their differences aside, for an enemy more ancient than the land itself is waking, bringing with it memories of the failure that doomed the old world to annihilation. It knows them, their fears, their hopes, and their failures. And it knows what they have only just begun to suspect: that all of this has happened before.
    But there is still hope, for even in a world of shadow and fear, true friendships never fade.
