    Slice of Life

    Three Mares, Brain Injury, And A Dream by Nyronus [9k words]


    AKA Chrysalis vs The Rolled-up Newspaper of Harmony

    AKA How To Unalone Yourself At Hearth’s Warming

    Chrysalis has been inexplicably spared the wrath of Discord and the Princesses, although frankly, she'd really rather have preferred the stone! Now burdened with an awful, dreadful, wicked curse that... gah, fills her with love and joy any time she tries to think a vengeful thought! And worse! Now she's been roped into pretending to be Applejack of all ponies on some errand to the middle of nowhere with a filly named Diamond Tiara and some lovely wretched mare named Cherry Jubilee.

    Not that she'll fail at all in this. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.

    Plus, it beats getting lost in the woods in winter.


    Chrysalick by Layri_Cheetah [2k words]


    Queen Chrysalis deemed her latest plan to be impeccable. No longer would she resign herself to the slow and meager amounts of love she got from reconnaissance, infiltrations, and abductions; no, to acquire love—vast quantities of love—she needed to masquerade as something universally adored and rather inconspicuous, like perhaps a lollipop?


    Of Princesses and Changelings by Vigilance [110k words]


    Princess Celestia has returned from a diplomacy mission with the Changelings, and she has a big surprise. She and Queen Chrysalis have fallen for each other and are now a couple. Cadence, more than a little distraught over what has transpired, plans to separate the two and prove that Chrysalis is still the evil enemy she was at the Royal Wedding.


    Advanced Lessons by dungeonguy88 [21k words]


    Twilight finds herself struggling without a clear path in front of her as a princess. In a bout of panic, she seeks out her mentor, Princess Celestia, in the hopes of gaining answers, only to find herself with some much more distressing questions.

    With a decidedly unexpected guest making herself comfortable in Canterlot Castle, it quickly becomes evident that her mentor has been keeping some interesting company over the years. Twilight quickly begins to realize just how much things are going to change for her. She's practically immortal. Which, apparently, means she's going to be spending a lot of time with beings a lot less mature than they first seemed.









    Ill Winds by ClanCrusher [72k words]


    Changelings have always been a secretive race, shrouded in mystery and keeping to themselves, staying unnoticed and in the shadows, feeding where they could and avoiding discovery at all costs. When Chrysalis made peace with Celestia, the veil of secrecy and subterfuge was shattered, and thanks to Twilight's efforts, the other changeling queens can no longer remain hidden.

    Of course, Twilight is more than happy to leave the tricky diplomacy to Celestia. She's having a hard enough time dealing with her own amorous changeling queen and her new personal pegasus guard competing with her.
