    Author: CoffeeMinion
    Starlight Glimmer's attempts to stop the Rainboom pulled Twilight Sparkle into many possible timestreams. In one of them, Rarity not only survived Nightmare Moon's victory over the forces of light; she even managed to work her way into a position of relative prominence and comfort in Nightmare Moon's service.
    But Rarity's generous heart has grown sick from what she has done and seen to secure that position, and she may yet find the courage to rise up against the wicked mistress of the night...

    Story: Expedition (Update Part 24!)


    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.

    Necromancy gets a bad rep.

    Oh, sure, some ponies like the whole cliche of the evil zombie master, pulling his puppet strings to make corpses dance and kill for their amusement. And yeah, you kinda do have to work with dead bodies a lot, and most ponies find that a bit creepy. Oh, and you learn a lot of spells to kill things and gain power from it.

    But, come on, that doesn't mean all necromancers are bad... right?
