3 Days Regret - Part 8Nurse Redheart sat characteristically silent in the equally quiet reception of Ponyville's large, but mostly vacant hospital. The caring mare finished compiling the files of last weeks patients, once again filing the majority of the cases under mass paranoia, this time from the use of the word 'virus' in one of the Mayor's speeches. As the nurse closed the drawer she felt an all to familiar invasion nuzzling its way into her mane, breathing warm air across her pearly white coat. "Are you still on for Friday night?" The bold but comforting voice asked through the hairs.
"I don't remember hearing about another date." Redheart slowly turned her head to view the stallion smiling back at her. "Or accepting it for that matter."
Doctor Stable kept his gaze consistent, staring into the nurse's jewelled eyes. "I'll book us a table." The orange colt rose back to his hooves upon seeing his date blush before staring up at the clock, its barely audible ticking filling the silent room. "I take it th
Moonlit tearsShe concentrated, as she had done so for so many years. Concentrated and focused her power, using all her magic to move the celestial body before her. Celestia stood on the balcony of the highest tower of the palace of Canterlot, performing a ritual and duty she had been bound to for as long as she could remember. The setting of the sun.
The sky began to dim as the fiery orb descended upon the horizon. Within moments, it was gone, and the land of Equestria was now deprived of it's light and warmth. There was a time when that would be the end of Celestia's daily duties, but these days, there was one final task she had to perform. Turning around, she now faced the east.
Closing her eyes once more, her horn began to glow again as she focused her power into moving yet another important part of the world. Slowly, the pale white orb rose above the eastern horizon until it hung gracefully in the night sky. What followed was a swarm of tiny dots of light which surrounded the orb and the blackn

The Equestria Alicorns side of the bleachers erupted, almost knocking Twilight Sparkle over. She was in the bleachers, attending her first highschool football game. Spike was on the side, next to her, yelling and shouting about with all the frenzy. Twilight didn't understand why the crowd was going crazy, but evidently something good had happened. Maybe she should pitch in?
The green football field was littered with several players, Equestria's players in navy and gold, and the opposing team, the Manehatten Manticores wore crimson and bronze. Their mascot had been beaten to the floor by the school's mascot, Ali the Alicorn.
Twilight was dissapointed with the design of the costume. She'd seen many better costumes come out of elsewhere, all and around the internet. She was even a little repulsed by the Manticore mascot's costume. The manticore's nose was partially ripped, and the leather was supposed to be its wings hung like jackets on a coat hanger.
First morningThere was no doubt about it. He had slept more peacefully that night than he had ever done in his entire life.
Dusk, had already awoken, but he refused to open his eyes, instead opting to enjoy this moment of comfort. He could lie in this bed all day if he had a choice, but the day itself seemed to have other plans. For not long after, a bird outside the window began to sing its morning song. Although somewhat irritated by this disturbance, Dusk nonetheless opened his eyes.
The sight which greeted his was a pleasant one. He had awoken in a magnificent bedroom, in a cottage way outside of the Ponyville area. The room was well furnished and the window opened to a spectacular view of the rising sun, whose light now filled the room with it's glow. He could not deny that this was quite a sight to wake to. He'd have to thank Celestia when he saw her next. Thank her for this wonderful honeymoon gift.
And speaking of which, that reminded him of another pleasant sight which greeted him as he tu

Rainbows Can Be Lonely Too- Epilogue
By: DolphinBuster starring: Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Cloud Kicker, and Fluttershy.
My hoof rapped on the door of Ponyville Library. Today I had agreed with Twilight to meet up to share our date experiences…if that makes any sense. It’s hard to put in words for some reason. Too bad I didn’t have time to think, ‘cause I heard the door creak as Twilight opened the door beaming,
“Hey Rainbow Dash, come on in!” I grinned at how happy Twilight seemed.
“You’re in a good mood today Twilight. I’m guessing your date went well?” I asked casually as I made my way inside the Library, slumping myself onto the floor.
Twilight came in my direction and nodded, “Actually yes. It went better than I had expected and…you’ll never guess who it was Rainbow!”
I smirked, “No…who was it? You have got to tell me!”
“It, it was Cloud Kicker!” Twil
Friendship is Magic: The Crystal Empire ReviewAs a season premiere, "The Crystal Empire" both solidifies the growing visual decadence of "Friendship is Magic" and suggests that there isn't always a need for a two-parter at the start of every season. The growing tradition of attempting to become increasingly more 'epic' with every new season has, for the first time, failed to capture what the writers were undoubtedly going for with these two episodes. Nonsensical and lacking a focused direction, the "The Crystal Empire" struggles to channel its lofty ambitions into episode format.
While fans fell in love with Season 2's Discord, and an enormous PR campaign backed up the "Canterlot Wedding" episodes, those two-part episodes bookmarked the season quite nicely, offering up some interesting villains and stories that were a little over-ambitious but still reasonably well-paced, for the most part. With "The Crystal Empire" things have taken a turn for the narrative worst, sadly, and in part this is most likely because the episodes are sh
