    Author: Shamus_Aran
    Description: Archer is not having a good day. He's recently been knocked unconscious and imprisoned by a Fae race, notorious for their animosity towards his kind and each other. Instead of cannibalistic Merfolk or mischievous Fairies, he finds... talking ponies. Who want him to be their "friend."

    He is sentenced to remain in a small town they call Eqshana, until he can learn to "live in harmony" with its inhabitants. Unfortunately, a message from his king, Jove V, has turned his prison sentence into a mission of espionage. Now he must escape these no-doubt insidious creatures, and even more importantly, stay sane doing it. Along the way, he will answer one of the most important questions he has ever faced: Is there really nothing to eat around here besides hay?

    Story: Butterscotch's Adventures in Equestria (Update Part 5!)

    [Shipping] This is technically supposed to be a parody of people that write clopfiction, by someone that writes clopfiction, so the obvious self insert is more than intended.

    This will probably spark a bit of controversy. The original title was...interesting. I've rolled the dice before though (Luna X OChuman for example!). As long as it's really well written (And this one defenitely is), I don't see a reason not to give it a shot.... That and the self insert isn't decked out with a six pack, pheromones that attract ponies,  and lightning controlling powers. (You guys send the strangest things sometimes..)

    Description: When English teacher Connie Hayden is told by a mysterious new friend that there is a way to travel from the human world to Equestria, she doesn't believe her. But what if the legend of Pinkamena is true?
