    Story: The Age of Wings and Steel (Update Sequel Part 9!)


    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.

    Author: Chengar Qordath
    Description: Rainbow Dash struggles to figure out why Pinkie Pie keeps acting weird and seems so happy about spending Hearts and Hooves Day with hanging out with her, while also puzzling over the fact that Cloud Kicker and Blossomforth seem to be going out of their way to help Rainbow and Pinkie enjoy the day.

    Story: What is a Name? (New Part 6!)

    [Sad] [Slice of Life]

    Author: Key Tapper
    Description: I've spent the majority of my life tilling the desolate land in which I live. Every day, I wake up to move useless rocks from one location to another. This is an archaic line of work that my family has clung to for generations. It is a dull, grey existence.

    Today, I have woken up in a strange room, lying in a bed that isn't mine. I'm surrounded by five mares whom I've never seen in my life. They claim to be my friends, and expect me to bring joy to the hearts of everypony.

    Joy? I don't think I've ever experienced this for myself, so how am I supposed to thrust it upon others?

    My name is Pinkamena Diane Pie, and I'm not sure what to make of this situation.

    Story: History Repeats (New Part 3!)

    [Adventure][Dark] "Weaving G1 and G4 together is no easy task, but this story takes a very difficult concept and makes it work, bringing an older Megan to Equestria. Worth every word." - Pre-Reader Hide 'n Seek Winner 2-Years Running.

    Author: Saddlesoap Opera
    Description: The history of Equestria spans dozens of centuries, and many terrible
    foes have risen up from the past to threaten the future once more,
    only to be defeated.

    When a vicious and powerful enemy older than any Twilight,
    her friends, or even the Princesses have faced before returns, they will
    have to reach out to an ally just as ancient for help... but is she still
    the heroine she once was?

    This story takes place after the end of Season 3, and draws on G1
    as well as G4 for inspiration.

    Author: Shay Caron
    Description: On one of her regular hunts for gemstones, Rarity discovers a treasure trove beyond her wildest dreams... and the lavender-scaled dragon who collected it.

    Story: An Eye for an Eye (New Part 5!)


    Author: Gizogi
    Description: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind," or so the saying goes. It is a reminder that revenge, no matter how justified it may seem, never solves anything. It is also completely irrelevant to this story.

    Instead, we join the Great and Powerful Trixie, who has once again returned to Ponyville to find Twilight Sparkle. This time, however, she comes seeking the help of a friend. Something old and dark is stirring, and she's convinced it's out for blood.

    Story: Starlight Over Detrot: A Noir Tale (Update Part 19!)


    Author: CEO Kasen and Chessie the Cat
    Description: Monster attacks. Crime. Illegal hallucinogens made from electric fruit.

    They say things didn't use to be like this. They say things were different, before Luna came back 60 years ago, but Detective Hard "Hardy" Boiled of the Detrot Police Department has never known any world other than that demarcated by the seedy streets of his beloved decaying metropolis; a world in which the coroners sing and dance, surveillance bugs have personality disorders, and the Chief of Police is a scarier entity than most of the eldritch things the city attracts.

    The grey unicorn who turned up dead outside the posh High Step Hotel seemed like just another case, but her missing horn is just the pointy tip of a very large and nasty iceberg. It's up to Hardy and his friends - a rejected monster hunter, a psychic cab driver, and an underground antiques heir - to find out what’s going on in an investigation that promises to turn Detrot upside-down and inside-out.

    Especially if Hardy has anything to say about it.
