    Slice of Life




    A Holiday Errand by Pen Stroke


    Sunset was expecting Princess Twilight Sparkle to be the one to come through the portal on a day when the holidays line up between the two worlds. Instead, her care package of Equestrian Hearth's Warming decorations is brought over by a student from the school of friendship, Gallus.

    This unexpected encounter will lead to a holiday lesson that resonates with both of them.


    Cookies at Midnight by Orbiting Kettle


    Sunset Shimmer had a tradition. It was one of those she made up herself, and she was looking forward to it. What she didn't expect was to not be alone at the school on the night of Heart's Warming Eve.

    From one of the offices, a light still shines...


    Friendsgiving by garatheauthor


    When you're an alien immigrant, you don't really have the luxury of a family to celebrate the holiday's with. So, Sunset has gone years without a proper Hearth's Warming.

    Usually she just eats Fruit Loops, Egg Nog, and Bourbon for her holiday meal and watches TV Specials in her sweatpants. Honestly, it's been pretty great.

    Though this year, Rarity wants to mess with the status quo.

    Super Awkward by AugieDog


    The summer after graduating from Canterlot High five years ago, Sunset and her friends saved the world from a super villain who called himself Grogar. The repercussions of that event made it the last time they could all stand being in the same room as each other.

    But now Canterlot City is holding a commemorative ceremony in honor of their victory, and Sunset's husband Time Turner has convinced her that they should go.

    She really should've tried to come up with a better argument for staying home.


    Accidentally In Yeet by Gay For Gadot


    Sunset Shimmer and Wallflower Blush just started dating. Everything's been going well so far, except for one thing. One nagging suspicion that Sunset can't seem to shake. It doesn't help that Wallflower keeps giving her ample opportunities to worry.









    Long Live The Queen by DrakeyC

    The Solution by Wanderer D

    And now it's time for Wallflower to stop her from making a horrible mistake.









    Valentine's Shimmer by DrakeyC


    Valentine’s Day is here and Sunset Shimmer couldn’t be more miserable, seeing as she’s the lone member of her group of friends with no significant other to spend the day with. Then a series of mysterious love letters begin appearing around her. Who’s behind this, and is it even a singular answer?

    Takes place before Friendship Games.


    Burning Passion by FanOfMostEverything


    A sky of eternal storms that offer only lightning, never rain.

    And If You Don't Know, Now You Know by J Carp


    Sunset Shimmer, who is catastrophically out of Wallflower Blush's league, has come back to town for the summer. Sunset is very kind and attentive. She likes hugs. She keeps coming up with cute little inside jokes. She stares, piningly, when she thinks Wallflower isn't looking.

    So, it would just be very easy for Wallflower to get the wrong impression.

    Which is why she was happy when she stumbled across a way to know the objective truth about how she and Sunset measure up against one another.

    “Hey, it’s Wallflower. I’m not at the phone right now, but you can leave a message, or text me. Or don’t. You probably dialed me by mistake. Beep.”

    Wallflower has a history of depression. One night when Sunset can’t get through to her, she’s forced to go and look for her with the help of a friend. Where could she have gone? Is it too late? Sunset will make sure it isn’t. Wallflower deserves so much more.


    12 Through 15 by The Red Parade


    Once upon a time, an angel and a demon fell in love.

    Wondercolts Forever by Epsilon-Delta

    Amo Ergo Sum by DrakeyC


    By the year 2238, two-thirds of humanity have become "ponies', living in an online virtual reality paradise where everything they could ask for is theirs to have at a moment's notice. It is a world of freedom, where all biological needs are eliminated and you can live forever doing whatever it is that pleases you.

    But for some, Equestria can seem less a paradise and more a prison, an artificial and manufactured place where nothing is real and everything is a simulated lie to make you feel comfortable. Perhaps, even the feelings of the mare sitting next to you holding your hoof. How could you ever be sure even your own feelings are truly yours if you're just a program stored on a server?

    Does living in Equestria mean Twilight Sparkle has to choose between her heart and her soul?
