• Story Updates October 23rd

    Story update time!  We have a pretty big set this time around, most of which are 5 star.  I notice most of the comments on these are people waiting for specific stories to update.  I'd suggest checking something new out if your favorites are still being written.  For the most part, stories on EQD should all be good in their own merits.  A few slip through the pre-readers, but the filter is pretty heavy.

    Story: Pony Age: Origins (Update Part 15!)

    [Crossover][Adventure][Grimdark] I think this time slot is dedicated to throwing random crossovers out and seeing how you guys react.  Naruto didn't work so well yesterday, but the pre-readers actually liked this one!

    Description: It's Twilight Sparkle's 18th birthday, and in time-honored pony tradition her friends have dragged her to Las Haygas, the world-renowned City of Lights. They promise to give her a night she'll never forget. And with the lights, the glamor, and a few shots of Liquid Rainboom, it seems they're poised to deliver just that.

    But when Twilight wakes up to a destroyed hotel room, a hangover so painful it leaves her unable to do magic, a missing pony, and a slew of unanswered questions, she is forced to wonder: did they party too hard? Now, the five ponies must clean up their mess by piecing together a night that none of them can remember, all the while searching for a friend that could already be halfway across the desert...

    It's a lesson they'll have to learn the hard way. Some ponies just can't handle Haygas.
