    EQD sure does have a random schedule lately.  Have some story updates at a crazy time!


    Story: Schemering Sintel (Update Side Story!)


    [Sad][Dark]

    Author: N00813
    Description: It's been a long, long time since Spike was stolen from her, but Twilight hasn't forgotten nor forgiven. After a long and arduous journey, she's finally found him and his kidnapper.

    She will save him.

    No matter the cost.
    Schemering Sintel


    Story: Of Age (Update Part 10!)



    [Adventure] [Shipping] "A story that uses strong characterization to portray an unlikely heroine facing something which she does not know how to deal with... and also preventing a war."
    -Prereader 13


    Author: paleowriter
    Description: When Rarity writes to Princess Celestia inquiring after how dragons age, she gets a plea for help in reply. A war is brewing, and Princess Celestia thinks Rarity's the one to stop it. Now, still completely uncertain what her feelings for Spike are or if they're even plausible, she's off to meet with his distant relatives to negotiate a truce between the dragons and the sea serpents before the world gets caught up in their destructive clash.
    Of Age (New Part 10!)


    Story: The Mare With No Name (New Part 4!)


    [Adventure]

    Author: GC13
    Description: The first few towns the Mare comes to might think her to be a curious,
    quiet sort. That's alright though: the Sisters have only just defeated
    Discord, and enough ponies bear scars caused by the tyrant for everypony to
    know when a mare just wants to keep to herself.

    The defeat of the King of Chaos isn't the end, however. Great beasts now
    roam Equestria, preying on its inhabitants. On her quest, to
    Sisters-know-where, the Mare will defeat the monsters, and finally bring
    peace to the nation.

    Story: A Delicate Balance (Update Part 19!)





    [Shipping]

    Author: Japanese Teeth
    Description: Twilight is shocked to notice that her feelings for one of her friends aren't quite the same as her feelings for the rest of them. Does she simply prefer some of her friends over others, or is it a sign of something deeper?
    A Delicate Balance (New Part 19!)


    Story: The Birth of Harmony (Update Sequel Part 5!)


    [Normal]

    Author: AugieDog
    Description: If "The Birth of Harmony" tells how Celestia, Luna, and Cadance first arrive in Equestria in answer to Clover the Clever's call, then "Calling You" continues the story by detailing Cadance's life helping her Aunt Celestia during the thousand years of her aunt Luna's banishment.
    The Birth of Harmony




    Story: Jericho (New Part 9!)


    [Comedy][Adventure][Dark] "Jericho is one of those stories where I can’t go one scene without seeing some gem of characterization, humour, or worldbuilding that makes me want to hold it up to the world and say, 'Yes! This is how it’s done!'" -- Pre-reader Amacita

    Author: Crushric
    Description: If you came to hear a story, I’m sorry to disappoint. I suspect this’ll just end up as one big confession, really. When you’re the first Teutscher to set hoof into Equestria for nearly a millennium, I suppose that’s to be expected. And when you’re the universe’s favorite chew toy, doubly so. Still, with enough wit, some Prussian ingenuity, a droll sense of humor, and wanton murder, I might just survive this. Then again, when you’re going up against an unending list of things like government conspiracies, that guardian angel who keeps telling you to kill ponies, psycho Equestrian girls with allophilia, a lunatic princess, the legions of the Inferno, the Equestrian culture itself, swashbuckling sword fights, and laissez-faire economists, you begin to release why there’s a big “if” in the middle of your life.

    Story: Pony Age: Origins (Update Part 36+37!)


    [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! (I honestly gambled with the Naruto one since no one would review it, sorry :p)


    Author: OmegaPony11
    Description: The Ponyspawn have invaded Equestria, and it is up to the newest addition to the Grey Wardens, Twilight Sparkle, to find them means to drive them back! With her friends and allies at her side, can Twilight defeat the evil tide before all of Equestria is devoured?
    Pony Age: Origins Part 1


    Story: Inner Glory (Update Part 64!)


    [Adventure][Progressively Grimdark]

    Author: Erindor
    Description: After doing some research into the history of Alicorns, Twilight finds a dead end. When she chooses to pursue it against Celestia's wishes, she finds herself entangled in a messy history that some want forgotten. An Alicorn's position comes with sacrifice. And when given power, one will always be in want of more...
    Inner Glory (New Part 64!) 


    Story: Only Human: A Lyra Heartstrings Production (Update Part 6!)


    [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!
