    FASHION
    ADVENTURE
    SCANDAL

    Rarity is more than just dresses, and her fanfiction reflects that. We've got a ton of them for you all to read thanks to a list from Whisper Key again. Head on down below to check them all out, sorted by genre!






    Slice of Life



    Is This It 
    by PapierSam

    Rarity and Rainbow Dash embark on many byzantine heists – where it takes two to live with the dire straits of mediocre life and still keep it together.



    Valuable Time, or Dolce Far Niente 
    by Impossible Numbers

    Running three boutiques across two cities and a town brings an unwelcome upsurge in dressmaking demands for Rarity, Ponyville's foremost fashionista and self-styled judge, jury, and executioner of artistic works and wonders. Then again, it is the Gala Season.

    Of course, things would be that little bit less exasperating if a certain pegasus pony wasn't so irritatingly laid-back about the whole thing. And for a connoisseur of quality and merit, there's a crime even worse than sunbathing while others are sweating over stitches…



    As Horns and Halos Surround You
    by Norm de Plume

    Rarity’s little Temptation ends up on pins and needles. Literally.

    With her shoulder-devil out of commission, other Temptations pop into her life to pick up the slack from their fallen sister.



    Vows Made in Wine
    by MrNumbers

    The problem with chasing dreams is that they rarely survive the catching.

    Rarity and Rainbow Dash have each followed their dreams to the end. Rainbow doesn't know how to keep going.

    A slice of life for a very particular kind of person.



    Stick to What Works
    by Dubs Rewatcher

    Rarity bothers Maud.

    That's just an unfortunate fact. Among all of Pinkie Pie's friends, Maud likes Rarity the least. She's too fussy, too picky... and she loves fashion, one of Maud's least favorite things in the world. For a mare with gems on her flank, the two of them simply do not get along.

    Following the Grand Galloping Gala, Rarity approaches Maud about replacing that "gaudy old" dress of hers. Not wanting to be rude, Maud takes her up on the offer―but she quickly learns that dealing with an impatient fashionista like Rarity comes with problems of its own.



    Doing Well By Doing Good
    by Baal Bunny

    As far as Fashionably Late is concerned, the Azdariz Diamond is just another jewel her husband Filthy Rich has bought for her. So when she loses it, she confides in Rarity that she'll be putting an announcement in the paper: whoever finds the diamond can keep it. To Rarity, however, the Azdariz is the finest gemstone ever produced in Equestria, and she's determined to keep it from falling into less appreciative hoofs. Donning the Mare-Do-Well suit, Rarity slips into Ponyville's midnight shadows to track the diamond down before the announcement gets published.

    Then Rainbow Dash gets involved. Then things get complicated.



    A Psalm of Life
    by Cynewulf

    Poets Corner, the proprietor of the popular hangout Corner Books and unofficial poet laureate of Ponyville, has died of natural causes. His wife disappears, unwilling to bear the burden of his death and what it means. With the town in disarray over the recent flooding, very few ponies even bother to attend. Twilight and Rarity, however, are there, and Rarity soon finds that she cannot shake her friend's last admonition.



    Just Like Her
    by Bad_Seed_72

    Ever since the Sisterhooves Social, Sweetie Belle and Rarity's relationship has improved drastically. There are still days when Rarity is a bit busy, of course, and certain times when Sweetie doesn't quite get the hint.

    During one particularly stressful day, Sweetie Belle gets into Rarity's makeup. Rarity demands an explanation. The answer isn't quite as simple as one sister playing dress-up.



    Time Enough for Sisters (Five Rarities, One Sweetie Belle)
    by sparks2037

    Fashion shifts fast-forward for Rarity one fateful summer day. It's the day that her four future selves, each carrying a magical time amulet, show up in her studio! But will her destiny, her sister Sweetie Belle’s destiny – and the future for all Equestria for that matter - be irrevocably changed by what they tell her?



    Gifts Ungiven
    by Slate Sadpony

    Rarity normally sees Hearth's Warming Eve as a pretty simple holiday. Eat cookies, put up with family, make Sweetie Belle a nice dress. But when all of Sweetie's other presents turn out to be clothes, Rarity can't bear the disappointment in her sister's cute little eyes. After finding an old Dress Me Daisy doll in her childhood bedroom, Rarity decides to make the doll into a perfect present.



    Don't Knock It Till You Try It
    by Maphysto

    When Rarity and Rainbow Dash discover that they disagree on a point close to their hearts, they decide to settle their differences the only way two mature mares can: by forcing each other to embarrass themselves.



    Where Does It Come From?
    by LimeAttack

    Rarity can't get anything done when an old question comes back from her days as a blank flank filly, so she searches for her answer.



    Lessons in Generosity
    by PaulAsaran

    Scootaloo is the last pony Rarity ever thought would want to be more 'Rarity', but that's exactly what the filly claims. Sadly, Scootaloo's understanding of generosity is disastrously flawed.

    Rarity's not about to let that stand.



    Rarity's Genesis
    by Impossible Numbers

    A certain filly suffers a sleepless night. She loves art. She loves beauty. She loves ponies not instantly laughing at her like they do her parents. But it's her first day of school tomorrow, and she has to decide what kind of pony she's going to be.



    The Coat
    by Orbiting Kettle

    It had been a long day at the boutique, and Rarity was looking forward to some well-deserved rest. Life, however, had other plans, and brought an unexpected customer with a formidable job at exactly the wrong time.

    Refusing would have been the obvious choice, but Rarity sensed there was something more, and she was nothing if not a curious mare.

    She wouldn't get her coveted rest, but a story about griffins told over tea seemed fair compensation for it.



    The Eyes of a Stranger
    by Cynewulf

    Success is often a bitter thing. When one has everything, then what worlds are left to conquer, after all? Rarity has expanded her business into every province of the Principality and is known in every city. She has everything that a much younger Rarity dreamed of, and yet absolutely nothing satisfies.

    We must imagine Rarity happy, no matter how impossible it seems.





    Comedy



    Best Friends
    by BronyWriter

    A good friend will help you move, but a true friend will help you move a body.

    Rarity desperately hopes that the latter is true.



    Fun in the Summit
    by FrontSevens

    Trade negotiations. Board meetings. Formal garden parties. Not the definition of a fun weekend for Princess Celestia at all.

    However, Celestia has a plan. Rarity’s going to join her this year, and by their gossiping powers combined, they may be able to turn this upcoming convention into something a little more unconventional.



    'Til Sunday Do Us Part
    by BlazzingInferno

    Rarity receives an invitation to Equestria’s most exclusive and secretive social club. The only catch is, she can only attend if she brings her lawfully wedded spouse. Fortunately, there’s a certain purple dragon who’s willing to help her overcome this little difficulty. It’s a simple, foolproof plan: get married, attend the club, and then get an annulment. Nothing is ever that simple, however… not their weekend, not their friendship, and certainly not their marriage.



    May The Force Be WIth Y'all
    by Your Antagonist

    While cleaning up after a particularly hectic Cutie Mark Crusader sleepover, Rarity and Applejack stumble across a couple of toy lightsabers.

    Havoc ensues.



    Rarity Loses Her Innocence in a Poker Game
     by MrNumbers

    Our six heroes decide to settle down for the night with a few bottles of their choice beverage and a few hands of poker.

    The night was going so well until Rarity decided to wager her virginity.

    Now she's desperate to get it back.



    My Little Rarity: Rarity is Rarity
    by Rainbow Bob

    The Grand Galloping Rarela, the most prestigious event in all of Rarequestria, is about to commence. However, it wouldn't be complete without Rarity making her grand appearance, along with the other rare six. Will the Elements of Fabulosity be able to defeat their surprise antagonist? Read on to find out!



    Spring is Dumb
    by HoofBitingActionOverload

    Rainbow Dash knows one thing for sure, she is definitely not a barbarous, uncivilized dolt who doesn't know polite conversation from a hippopotamus's rear end. And also that she's definitely not the one who's wrong. Rarity is wrong. Rainbow Dash is absolutely, totally, a hundred percent sure of it.

    But then why did Rainbow just buy a wagon load of apology bouquets?



    Putting the 'Harm' In Harmony
    by chief maximus

    I can't believe this! How dare they forget who they're dealing with! I'm the very Element of Generosity! But to ask me to share my suite with the likes of... her? It's inconceivable, preposterous, ludicrous! They seriously think I, Rarity, fashion designer extraordinaire would be willing to share even a suite with such an... uncouth beast! Unfortunately, the Canterlot Ritz—and every other hotel—is booked solid, so it is either this or nothing. I suppose as long as I keep to myself, I will survive the week. Right?



    Authored for Adoration
    by Sharp Spark

    Rarity has a secret. Well, two secrets. First, she has a crush on one particular pony. And second, she has been writing a story for the object of her affections, to reveal her love. But when word gets out about her literary abilities, suddenly all of her friends want her help on their own writing projects. And all of them need to be done by Hearts and Hooves Day! Could Rarity not be the only one with a hidden agenda here? And how exactly will she manage so many projects in such a short period of time?



    Let's Find You a Date!
    by Soundslikeponies


    When Rarity finds out how little Twilight gets out of the Library, things get out of hand as she decides to take it upon herself to teach Twilight the ropes of dating. As Rarity drags her around, Twilight begins to have a good idea of who she wants to ask out.



    Melting Away
    by Melon Hunter

    Commissioned to produce a dress for Princess Celestia herself, Rarity orders in the finest fabric she can get her hooves on. However, her work is disturbed by a mysterious plague that spreads through the town, causing ponies to lose their beloved manes! Is it the work of a phantom prankster? Perhaps a deadly disease? Or maybe something a little more... colourful?



    The Best Night Ever
    by Capn_Chryssalid

    Prince Blueblood thought the Grand Galloping Gala was over. He thought he could just go to sleep and put it behind him. He never expected to be reliving the same disaster of a day, over and over... and over.



    A Capper is Fine Too
    by shortskirtsandexplosions

    Capper is invited to Ponyville to celebrate Hearth's Warming. It's a delightful holiday party for sure, but the suave Abyssinian gentlefeline can't help but think of one thing: Where's that fabulous fashionista with the purple mane?



    A Very Merry Commission
    by Impossible Numbers

    Usually not one for tacky clothing or far-out ideas, Rarity nonetheless fulfils a generous if somewhat embarrassing dressmaking commission to please Derpy Hooves.

    Unfortunately for her, a generous act can have... strange and unexpected consequences, especially when poor, simple, over-the-moon-grateful Derpy insists on repaying the kind deed.

    Of course, Rarity will take it all in stride. And so will everyone else. It's only fashion, after all. No one ever gets silly or over-the-top about that, right?



    Bootyshy
    by redsquirrel456

    When Rainbow and Rarity visit Canterlot, the last thing they expected to see was Fluttershy heading to a secret meeting. With a colt, no less. What else are a pair of curious girls to do but relentlessly stalk their shy friend for the rest of the day in the hope of seeing something a little less innocent than a mere date?

    Nothing. They will do nothing else.



    In Hindsight
    by Aragon

    This is a story about Rarity's hips.

    (All good stories are.)





    Sad/Dark



    Under The Streetlights

    Repercussions
    by shallow15

    Sunset Shimmer has been attacked and lies comatose in the hospital. All evidence points to someone who has access to magic. Led by Rarity, the rest of Sunset's friends begin to search for who did it and why.

    But the answers may not give them the comfort they seek. And unknown to them, Sunset is having struggles of her own.



    If Only, If Only
    by GaPJaxie


    Sometimes, when I'm writing, I get upset. I have occasional psychiatric problems, and my creative work means a lot to me. When it doesn't go just right, I can get very emotional very quickly. Enough that sometimes it worries my friends, and they ask what's going on in my head.

    This is a story about how it feels, as told by little horses.

    Something hasn't been right about Rarity since the Inspiration Manifestation spell. Maybe somepony should check on her.



    Carousel
    by Thornquill

    The Millennial Summer Sun Celebration is only a few years away, but Rarity’s fashion career seems to be ending before she can begin it. Now, she has one last chance to find a place for her talent.

    But as she works to create the boutique of her dreams, a forgotten piece of Ponyville’s past is waking up. Secret memories lie forgotten in dusty basements, unrighted wrongs scratch at locked doors, and Rarity finds herself caught up in a history that may be doomed to repeat itself.

    For although she is the first to set hoof in the Old Town Hall in thirty years, she can’t help but feel that something inside was waiting for her.



    What is Left

    Allure
    by TheSlorg

    While visiting Twilight Sparkle, Rarity stumbles across an old book that, upon first glance, seems to provide a detailed insight into time-worn customs on the preservation of beauty and grace. Eager to expand upon her knowledge, she takes the book home with her.

    She soon discovers that the book offers more than she ever could have imagined, and its secrets can be hers...

    ...if she's willing to pay the price.



    If Memory Serves
    by Pascoite

    Odd how some things stick in one's memory—certain places, personalities, sounds, even smells. Touching on one of these elements can cause a lifetime of experiences to come flooding back.

    And just as quickly, they're gone.



    Only Skin Deep
    by Pascoite

    Rarity's gotten herself in a rut, and to get out of it, she needs to design something so unique, so unmistakable that nopony could ever miss it. Her friends deserve that much. But nothing's free, of course.



    Look Up
    by Dark Avenger

    Based on the scene at the very end of "The Last Roundup": Pinkie Pie and Rarity are left stranded in the Badlands, their long and agonizing journey home requiring them to spend a night alone in the desert. It is here that the latter discovers a painful secret hidden beneath her friend's constant cheerful demeanor.

    Despite not being the one famous for bringing a smile to everypony's face wherever she goes, the exhausted (and most unacceptably filthy) fashionista does everything in her power to make her happy again...



    Unspoken
    by OleGrayMane

    Easy as Lying
    by Thanqol

    "Our life is a journey through winter and night

    we search for our way in a sky without light..."

    The old stories tell of the Mask of Lies, that entraps its wearer as certainly as it entraps everything around it. The worst lies of all are the ones we tell ourselves.



    On Pins and Needles
    by The Descendant

    Poor Spike, all he wanted to do is spend time near the pony he adores. Now, because of one little lie, he's in real trouble. A geography bee, a macabre doppelgänger, and an icebox all play their part as Spike and Rarity once again find themselves on pins and needles...



    The Three Sisters
    by Wanderer D


    Shining Armor and Cadence's spell reveals something completely unexpected as it expels Chrysalis and her changelings out of Canterlot: A secret kept from everypony for several years...

    by NTSTS

    Rarity finds herself especially intrigued by the dresses of Ponyville's newest dressmaker. Struggling under the burden of her own adoration she finds herself trapped within an existential crisis. In this nihilistic twilight, she clings onto the last of her creative sanity, trying to pierce through the mysterium that is the new dressmaker's identity. A story that deals with what it is to be and, subsequently, what it is to not be in the world of creativity.





    Shipping



    The Root of the Problem
    by BlazzingInferno

    Rarity is turning into a plant, which is the least of her troubles.



    The Waters of March
    by TheBandBrony

    Rainbow Dash can outrun just about everything in Equestria--everything, it seems, except apathy. The mundanity of her job drives her further out of her mind each day. None of yesterday's comforts can soothe her. Even fighting off monsters feels routine.

    When Rarity mentions plans for a tropical vacation, Dash sees green (and blue, and whatever sandy color the island is), and sparks a plan.

    What kind of friend wouldn't accompany Rarity to a remote tropical island for a long weekend of fun?

    What kind of friend indeed.



    Exactly Right
    by kits

    Rarity is hosting the annual Societé Fabrique soiree. Everything is going splendid thanks to some help from her friends. It's a bit boring, true. The social strictures of hosting tend to make for a rather dull night, but luckily for Rarity, she has Applejack to keep her company.



    Playing With Fire
    by Timaeus

    For a mare of Rarity's calibre, chances to relax are few and far between. Business, clients, and her boutiques in Ponyville, Canterlot, and Manehattan must always come first.

    However, when a new, bold, and daring client walks through her door, she might find a long overdue chance to unwind. Drawn in like a moth to the flame, how could she possibly resist?

    After all, even a lady must be allowed to indulge once in a while.



    Diamonds Amidst the Stars
    by Novel-Idea

    As a dark threat descends upon the Diamond Wall of Canterlot, an ancient treaty forces the deerkin to come to Equestria’s aid once more. To the Royal Five’s surprise, a single ambassador is sent instead of the army Equestria so desperately needs.

    And yet, this unique magic-wielding deerkin may hold the secret to Canterlot’s salvation… assuming she ever stops flirting with the young Astra Princess Twilight Sparkle.



    Solitude for the Modern Businessmare
    by Fahrenheit

    Ladies do not avoid their problems. If a lady finds herself facing down a lonely Hearts & Hooves Day, she should smile and gracefully accept her lot in life, patiently trusting that more enjoyable times are on the way.

    A lady certainly doesn't chase a stranger down the dreary streets of Canterlot, even if that stranger does turn out to be the Madam Inspector of the Equestrian Games. Loneliness and creative distress are no excuse for wild behavior. A lady should know better.

    But Rarity has never been just a lady.



    Nothing is Constant
    by Cynewulf

    Twilight has learned that ponies can change a lot in only a year or two.

    And she's okay with that. Maybe.




    Midnight Oil
    by The 24th Pegasus

    Rarity is no stranger to working late nights and burning her fair share of midnight oil to finish orders. Tonight is no different, except that her project isn't a last-minute order for some noblemare in Canterlot. It's for somepony far closer and far more important to her than any customer she's ever had, or ever will have, and for that reason, it needs to be perfect.

    For her, she'll burn all the oil in the world just to do it right.



    In the Belly of the Lights
    by Miller Minus

    After Rarity's night in Canterlot is disjointed by an absent date, she and another luckless romantic head downtown to try and find a reason to not go home.

    But when the music is this loud, how long will it be till the floor crumbles?



    Injuring Eternity
    by Monochromatic

    For Twilight Sparkle, the increased lifespan that came with princesshood had forced her to outlive most of her beloved friends and her special somepony. Luckily, a simple spell to go back in time would be all she needed to get one last non-obstructive glimpse and finally move on.

    Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, her plans never tend to go as expected, and she would learn that centuries could be lived in but a single day.



    Through Glass
    by Titanium Dragon

    Rarity helps a beautiful mare pick out the perfect hat in her boutique.



    The Ocean
    by Bad_Seed_72

    The wise and mysterious "They" have a couple of sayings about love.

    Love isn't always on time.

    Love hurts.

    And distance makes the heart grow fonder.

    "They" are wise for a reason. Applejack and Rarity know this all too well.

    When the two friends finally admit their deepest feelings for each other, it couldn't have come at a worse possible time. With Rarity moving to Canterlot in less than a month, can their new relationship survive the distance? Or will it be too much for Applejack to endure?



    Green
    by Steel Resolve

    Rarity and Fluttershy have been friends for years, and every week they go to the spa. But after every trip, Rarity finds herself growing greener with envy over Fluttershy's beauty and grace, if not something more than just envy— and what might happen if she finds out Fluttershy feels the same way about her?





    Happy Ending
    by Bad Horse

    After seeing the destiny of the son he is to have with Rarity, Blueblood tries to change the future for the better.



    When They Found Common Ground
    by Craine

    What could a smug, arrogant, disrespectful, inconsiderate, country-town farmpony possibly have to offer a seamstress down on her luck? Migraines, premature wrinkles, a revolutionary new fashion line, and a burning attraction that they'd both deny until the moon crashed into Equestria. That's what.



    The Shadow of a Doubt
    by Ardensfax

    Princess, Professor, friend. What more could a pony ask for?

    Ten years have gone since she met her first true friends, and Twilight Sparkle has begun to find the past weighing upon her. She always knew that her friends would begin to drift apart with time; she understood that those endless Ponyville summers must end one day. Still, even though Twilight has accomplished her dreams, something is keeping her rooted in the past.

    But the bustling, decadent nights in Canterlot are made for sharing secrets, and tonight, an old friend is waiting for her among the crowds. Could a familiar face and a guiding hoof be enough to lighten the young princess's burden?



    The Sound of Diamonds
    by PropMaster

    Lower Case came to Ponyville a jaded stallion intent on finding a quiet place to craft his magnum opus, free of the burdens and strife of life in Manehattan. What he did not intend to find was an elegant young mare willing to open her world of friendship and creativity to him. What he did not intend was for her to open his eyes to the life he'd been hiding from.

    What he never dreamed was that she would actually admire him for the stallion he truly is.



    Of Age
    by paleowriter

    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.



    The Turntablist
    by Craine

    Confidence. A valuable trait. One that tempers the mind with an iron will, and swells the voice with power. An asset that sways the strong and inspires the weak. An unsinkable ship that braves the rapids of doubt, and sails her captain through any storm.



    Felt Heart
    by Tchernobog

    Rarity discovers an old tradition involving the exchange of felt dolls as a sign of affection. This sparks a brilliant plan to play matchmaker with her friends, and between herself and Twilight.

    But brilliant plans never go as expected, do they?



    Twisting Between the Sheets
    by HoofBitingActionOverload

    When Rarity’s friends discover that she has been secretly meeting with an escort, they begin investigating, and soon discover a web of lies and unrequited romances none of them ever could have expected.



    Lost Princess
    by ugugg93

    No Recipe For Perfection
    by Cloudy Skies

    It's one thing to wake up on the wrong side of the bed. It's something quite different to worry that it doesn't have a right side anymore. Stuck in an artistic rut, Rarity has to rely on an unlikely friend to understand who she is, and in doing so, discovers that what we want may not always be obvious, even to oneself.

    There may or may not be an excess of hats involved, and fabulosity is guaranteed.



    Seeking Beauty
    by Donnys Boy

    City in a Bottle
    by Cynewulf

    Twilight is unstuck in time on a city in the liminal space between now and never. Rarity comes after her. Together they have a lot of thinking to do.





    Drama



    An Artist Among Animals
    by TheBandBrony

    Trouble looms in post-war paradise. Rarity’s overly generous sales strategy coupled with her unsavory dealings in the illegal Equestrian fur trade have sunk her deep into debt. With every day bringing her closer to homelessness, she is forced to assume her ex-life as a highbrow thief under the hoof of Equestria's last great crime lord, Don Noir.

    Meanwhile, Twilight Sparkle searches for a way to help her friend. Her solution: bank robbery! Teaming up with a disgraced and disfigured con-pony, Twilight dives headfirst into the murky depths of the Equestrian underworld. Will she be able to sort everything out by the time Rarity's rent is due? Or will she wind up behind bars just in time to see Rarity wind up on the streets?

    Set seven years after a cataclysmic war between pony and griffonkind, An Artist Among Animals chronicles a leader’s descent into corruption, a coward criminal’s mad dash for redemption, a broken veteran's struggle to save his soul, and an artist’s battle to retain her morals while still finding a way to make tons of cash.



    Adaptation
    by Ceffyl Dwr

    One night, while reading Sweetie Belle her favourite fairy tale, Rarity decides that her sister just isn't getting sufficient positive role models from her current literary choices. Spurred on, she decides that the only way to overcome this terrible fact is to adapt one of the fairy tales herself.

    After all, when the source material is as bad as this how hard can it be?

    Folklore cannot be easily tamed however; those creating and imparting the tales often learn about themselves just as much as the audience they're telling them to.



    Hearth Swarming Eve
    by Horizon

    Stress levels were already high, with Twilight directing her first royal Hearth's Warming pageant and unexpected snowstorms escaping the Everfree. Then the changeling army arrived.

    Now, with Queen Chrysalis holding Ponyville hostage and the clock ticking on suspiciously pointless negotiations, it's up to Rarity to match wits with the invaders and save the holiday. However, as she digs ever deeper into the queen's tangled plot, what she learns could force her to choose between her friendships and her conscience.





    Adventure



    Broken Mirror
    by GMBlackjack

    There is a world, not far from the Equestria you know and love, where things are much different. How exactly? Well, that will be discovered as time goes on. It isn't all sunshine and rainbows, though both those things exist.

    Through an accident that probably could have been prevented were proper precautions in place, two ponies by the name of Rarity and Pinkie Pie are sucked into this nearby world, where they must learn its rules to survive.

    If you are squeamish, have a distaste for angry drama, or just can't take ponies being absolutely dastardly, you should leave now, before your poor mind gets triggered. There will be pain and suffering, and there will be nothing your distant psyches can do about it.

    Those who are still here - I don't know why you're reading this. I just know that you are. And that I will be your guide.



    Zeitgeist by
    GaPJaxie

    Sassy Saddles loves her craft. But can she and Rarity reconcile their different visions of the fashion industry?

    An experimental fic. Written during a fevered afternoon.



    The Flight of the Alicorn
    by Ponydora Prancypants

    Rarity's exploits in "Sweet and Elite" set in motion a chain of events that will find the unicorn dressmaker taking part in the greatest airship race in the world, the Alicorn's Cup. Excitement will give way to terror, as Rarity soon finds herself the victim of a plot against Equestria, and shipwrecked far from home with her least favorite stallion, the boorish Prince Blueblood. Rarity will learn of treachery in Canterlot and abroad, and will have search for something of substance beneath the prince's obnoxious veneer as she struggles to not only save herself, but her entire nation.

With the prize of Canterlot and its Platinum Crown at stake, it falls to six Elements of Harmony to once again save not just Ponyville, but all of Equestria.
