    Story: Woven Word Weekly (Update Part 2!)


    Author: WovenWord
    Description: They say heroes are to be admired from afar. That they're the stuff of legends and folk tales, of epic stories and hushed whispers. But, deep down, we all know heroes are ponies—just like us—who rose to the occasion. Ponies who live amongst us and may even pass us in the street without being recognized.

    Princess Celestia has asked us to help lift part of this veil, this feeling of distance from those who we honor and respect. It is to that end that we introduce our newest supplement: Woven Word Weekly, helmed by the titular author, to bring you—the people of Equestria—a closer look into the lives of the greatest heroes of our time: The bearers of Harmony.

    We hope it'll be to the liking of Her Majesty and our dear readers.

    Always at your service,
    Final Cut

    Story: Awakening (Update Part 6!)

    [Sad] [Adventure] [Sci-fi]

    Author: Solocitizen
    Description: After being marooned on an icy world in unexplored space, Lumina must now face the perils of this frozen wasteland and search for some way home. But in this dark place, she discovers something that was lost to pony kind ever since the fabled Equestria sank into the ocean over 10,000 years ago. Something that will change her, and possibly the entire galaxy, forever.

    Not a cross over and not an alternate universe. This is the far future, and this has happened before.

    Story: Twice as Bright (Update Part 9!)


    Author: Cloudy Skies
    Description: Celestia likes her routine. Tax reforms, grants, laws and construction projects are all a princess needs to be content.

    It's just her luck that for Pinkie Pie, "content" is not nearly enough.

    Story: Under A Luminous Sky (Update Sequel Part 5)

    [Dark] "This chilling story strikes a good balance between "placid" and "panic," and the opening chapters set the stage for what's surely going to be one Hell of a ride." -Pre reader with no name!

    Author: Jake The Army Guy
    Description:  Ponyville, the humble village known for its peaceful tranquility, is shaken to its core when a body is discovered in the Everfree Forest. As the townsponies grieve, the strange, pale Special Agent Bentgrass, from Their Majesties' Royal Investigative Service, arrives at the Books and Branches library and drags Twilight into a world she's only read about: lies, corruption, suspicion, and murder.
    Faced with an indifferent police force, and Agent Bentgrass's infuriating methods, Twilight must put the pieces together and catch the killer. But as blood continues to spill and questions pile up, one thing is terrifyingly clear: in the dark of the Everfree, much more is at play than mere murder.

    Story: Boss of Me (New Part 11!)

    [Adventure] [Slice of Life] "This story is an eccentric blend of slice-of-life pony goodness and anime action sensibilities, and the result is like a delicious smoothie." -Pre-reader who likes sky pirates

    Author: ToixStory
    Description: When Sweetie Belle is accepted into the mysterious Canterlot Music Meister Academy, she finds that life in a school filled with eccentric teachers, odd students, and lots of music is anything but normal.

    Story: The Age of Wings and Steel (Update Sequel!)


    Description:  Three hundred years after the fall of Princess Luna, Equestria teeters on the brink of disaster. Bitter political infighting and power-hungry nobles threaten to tear the country apart in a bloody civil war, while in the south old enemies prepare to reclaim their ancient homeland from the ponies.
    As Princess Celestia desperately strives to hold together her splintered nation, she sends a young pony on a quest to the northern lands that border Equestria in order to plead for aid against the threat of Grypha. This unlikely messenger is Rye Strudel, the flightless, magic-less half-breed son of a guard and a baker. Rye must do the impossible and unite the thanes of the north... for if he cannot, there may be no home to come back to.

    Story: Population: One (Update Part 6!)


    Author: Trials
    Description: It's been eighty-nine days since the Day of Darkness, and Twilight Sparkle is still on her own. Eighty-nine days since she talked to anyone other than herself. Regardless of how lonely she feels, she prefers the company of herself to the vicious "lurkers", as she calls them, roaming around outside of her library. Whatever friendly, loving creatures they were before the Day of Darkness, something changed them. Something created these insane creatures, and nothing, not even Twilight, can stop them. All Twilight can do is live — live to fight another day.

    Story: Only Human: A Lyra Heartstrings Production (Update Part 4!)

    [Comedy][Shipping][Slice of Life] "This is a fun, upbeat story that takes a tired joke in the fandom and makes it actually work. It's a real joy to see the author's take on Equestria and these characters; anyone who has ever dealt with trying to get their creative works noticed will really connect with Lyra in this story. I recommend this to anyone who likes unobtrusive shipping and the sort of humor that comes from everyday life and its occasional zaniness." -Pre-reader who likes sky pirates

    Author: Smoking Gun
    Description: Lyra makes a big splash in Equestria when she gets her new animated series for children on the world's No.1 network. The show in question: Only Human, which centers around a group of these mythical creatures called 'humans', straight from Lyra's imagination, who become friends as they overcome life's obstacles together.

    With the help of her executive producer, Bon Bon, Lyra starts to make an unprecedented impact in Equestria. Making friends, enemies and... other.

    Can Lyra make it in the world of television? Will the Equestria take to these new 'humans'? You'll have to tune into the Pub network every Saturday at 1PM to find out!

    Story: Order from Chaos (Update Story 2!)

    [Crossover] Twilight Snarkle has made the impossible happen. You may recognize that image up there as none other than Doctor Robotnik (Or egghead or whatever... though I really dislike the hell out of that name). The Pre-readers have literally turned down 50+ Sonic fanfics over the last few months, so seeing one actually get through is like watching the sun rise after a hurricane.

    That being said, the requirement for a Sonic crossover to get through is apparently really high, making this supposedly really good.  So give it a shot before to 1 star it.  

    They even gave me a quote:
    "5/5. Accepted. Post now. You don't need to write anymore Sonic Crossovers now, people."-Pre Reader "THE LIFE BINDER" 

    Author: Twilight Snarkle
    Description: A journal recounts a remarkable discovery to Equestria by someone who sought only a little peace.
