Description: Perignon owns a wine shop. It's simple, it's straightforward, it's what he's good at and it's all he needs. He doesn't need nonsense from Hearth's Warming in any form. In fact, anyone trying to deliver said nonsense quickly earns a shoulder colder than the blizzard sweeping through town. Everyone would be better off if they shut up and treated reality like it is: cold and heartless.A Heart's Warming Carol

Celestia raises the sun, Luna raises the moon, Cadance rules the Crystal Empire, but what about poor Twilight here? Is princess simply the title for an alicorn in Equestria? How would the common pony in Manehatten react if Luna asked for a cab?
Honestly, as someone who loves Twilight for being the booknerdy pony she is, I'm more than happy that she isn't treated like a princess, but what exactly is her title in Equestria?
Hit those comments up!
Did Rainbow Dash just go Super Saiyan or something? That mane is epic! They seem to be moving away from the pink with this line. I could almost see that in the middleground section in a toy store.
We still don't know exactly what Rainbow Power plans on being, there is a good chance we are going to find out as the season continues on though.
Thanks to The Skullivan for the image.
Between the top two winning categories, it looks like fanged Fluttershy is totally popular. She didn't have them in the recent episode, but I'm cossing my fingers that we get a reaction if apples ever pop up, however unlikely that is.
Next poll: I asked on Twitter for polls, but only got stuff that would work well with discussion posts for the new episode. I think its just unpollable, so have a general season 4 one instead. We have seen a lot of growth out of the main characters of the show so far. Which one do you like the most if you only took this season alone?
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 65!)

Spike will be one for Rarity any day.
The best part about all this is that this tag has more than one image barely 24 hours after it first came up. This fandom's wicked crazy (or full of people who like transformation, I dunno).
We're not even halfway through Season 4, and this feels like the year we're really getting to tour Equestria. Practically every episode we've seen so far has taken place in some different part of the kingdom, and very little of it feels stretched thin or cut from cardboard. Deployed correctly, setting occupies a role as powerful (if not more so) than any character you put into a narrative, because any work of art only benefits from adroit framing.
Hit the break for the prompt, as well as all the rules you'll need to start sending stories in!
For the first episode of the new year, we were gifted by DHX a big-city adventure full of firsts sprinkled with a few, "wow, about time" mumblings from yours truly to sweeten the deal. Rarity's last dedicated set of episodes were way back in season two with Sweet and Elite and Sisterhooves Social, so it's nice to see her getting the spotlight once again after two years of waiting. Once again we're back in one of Equestria's sprawling metropoles far from the idyllic fields of Ponyville, trailing our faithful band of small horses as they race to deliver the One Ring into the fires of Mount Doom.
Wait, no, sorry, we're on Manhattan Island. I always get those two confused.
Hey, it's Rarity episode followup time. Grab your eagles, let's go.

Good morning! It's 9am in this great roaring city full of garbage ponies ravaging parking spots beneath Manehattan windows. I see Suri in her tight skins and tired heels—all-night Coco in the diner crossing the street. Swarthy herds of young impala, flambastic horses, even a struggling dragon; and over there that brilliant head ornament on that Ponyville filly. But look closely at the mustang hoof in hoof with the stallion, it's a sight you're unlikely to see anywhere else on the planet! (I don't know what the hell I'm on about, here's my new video and also Past Analysis' video on Bats! after the break.)
