    Auk-ward… by Estee

    Since the rediscovery of the Elements, the reputation of the Bearers has been slow to spread -- but it has spread. And so some ponies are now aware that if they ever truly want to know what an animal is thinking, all they need to do is go to Ponyville, approach the cottage on the settled zone's border, and request a consultation -- whereupon the pegasus who lives there will typically do everything she can to turn them away. After all, most ponies really don't want to know that their favorite companions are, at heart, complete morons.

    Wingmares by Couch Crusader

    Little Rainbow Dash is loyal to one pony and one pony only: herself. It's a simple system, and it gets her through the days. But that all changes one stormy summer afternoon at flight camp, when another pegasus blunders into her life--a pegasus with whom she shares nothing in common.

    Where They Understand You 
    by Loganberry

    Rainbow Dash moved into Ponyville's Cloud House on her birthday. She never expected things to turn out like that; it's a long way down from Cloudsdale, after all.

"Home is not where you live but where they understand you" — Christian Morgenstern

    What My Cutie Mark was Telling Me

Even after our true friends step in to right what was wrong, a false destiny can leave something behind, and all you can do is ignore it... or embrace it. Set shortly after the end of Magical Mystery Cure.

    Five Hundred Little Murders 
    by Estee

    Flitter doesn't like most ponies. There's hardly anything in the world Flitter likes, very few which she can even remotely tolerate, and only a couple which she truly loves. Fluttershy is not in the last two categories. Flitter sees Fluttershy as weak, and weakness disgusts her. But when you're trying to help someone you love, you'll look for help in a lot of places -- including the cottage of the weakest pony in the world. And for those willing to listen past their pain, it might be the place where they start to learn what true strength is.

[This is a thematic crossover with the visual novel 'Umineko No Naku Koro Ni.' No prior knowledge of Umineko should be necessary.]

    Fluttershy’s Night Out 
    by Bad Horse

    Fluttershy just wants a little pony company. It doesn't have to be conversation. Maybe she'll just sit and sip the water as it melts off the ice cubes from her empty drink, and watch the other ponies talk. That would be nice. Or maybe something entirely different will happen.

    There's a First Time for Everything 
    by Dubs Rewatcher

    by The 24th Pegasus

    When Fluttershy went to bed, she was a normal mare. When she woke up, she could see numbers floating over everypony's heads. They were timers, each one counting down to some unknown event.

    The Web Untangled 
    by Impossible Numbers

    Spiders. Nightmares on eight scuttling legs. An entire group of creatures so bizarre, menacing, and creepy in their habits that a specific phobia has been dedicated to them. It's proven to be surprisingly popular. Or unpopular, as the case may be. For Fluttershy, though, there's a lot more to them than that. A friend to all living creatures can hardly discriminate amongst her charges. And surprisingly for her, a day when she devotes her time and energy solely to these alien animals proves to be one of the most enjoyable ones of her week.

    by Jay Bear v2

She spends time with her best friend Rainbow Dash, trains for war, and follows the latest reports of missing fillies and colts. By day, everything is perfectly normal. And all wrong. [A crossover with Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Knowledge of the series is not required.]
