    Story: Starlight Over Detrot: A Noir Tale (Update Act 2 Part 34!)


    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.

However, to do so, they must uncover the truths about the Elements of Harmony, and the truths about the ancient forerunners of Equestrian culture. What they find will challenge their conceptions of their own places in history and ponydom's place in the world. The six Bearers of the Elements must draw upon their friendship and the strength of their hearts to stand firm against the darkness. If they fail, it will mean the end of everything.

    Story: Seeking Power


    Author: Forthwith

    Description: In the far reaches of Canterlot Castle, high above in the towers lives the archmage. Everypony knows her, yet few have met her.
    Twilight Sparkle sighs, having teleported away another noble seeking favors before reaching the top of the stairs. That was the second time today; they never learned.
    As the archmage, Twilight already deals with political squabbles far too often without inviting them into her home. Aside from personal favors for her only friend, Princess Celestia, she does what is required of her position and then returns to seclusion and research.
    The nobles grumble that no archmage should be a commoner, and Twilight’s disrespect towards them proves it. Each and every time they are forced to bow to her, they hate what they see: the position, the status, the deference.
    Is she not powerful? Is she not great?
    Twilight, now reading through dusty scrolls and long forgotten tales, writes in her notes. Notes gathering dust of their own. A brief thought flashes through her mind as she fervidly writes.
    Am I not powerful? Am I not great?
