Shadow LancingUrrrgh I don't feel so well "
"I'm not surprised considering how much candy you ate. Hopefully you can feel better after a good night's sleep." Twilight walked up to the bedroom and floated the sick dragon onto his bed. She checked herself in the mirror to make sure her Vincent Van Foal costume was still in order. And with one last look in the bedroom to make sure Spike had settled comfortably into a candy-induced coma, she was ready to go meet up with friends at Sweet Apple Acres.
"It's about time somepony else showed up, there hasn't been any little kids to scare for hours!"
"Nice to see you too, Rainbow Dash. Is our carriage already here?"
Yeah, it's sitting behind the barn. And there you are Applejack! How could you be late when we're meeting at your house?!"
"Hold yer horses, Rainbow. Ah was just getting' Apple Bloom to bed first. Everypony ain't her anyways." Applejack scratched her head, felling a bit uncomfortable since her Globe Tro
Can't Stop the Music"Is that the last of 'em?"
"Phew. There's a whole lotta apples this year. Good thing ya didn't hurt yourself again!"
Big Macintosh gave Applejack a look. "Well okay, that was mah fault anyways, are ya goin' ta town again tonight?"
"Ah'm asking 'cause Sugar Cube Corner has a order on apples for some cakes. They said they want it fast as can be, so I thought ya could bring their order with ya if ya came to town tonight."
"Sounds good ta me."
Okay then, just try not to talk any one's ear off at th' bar, ya hear?" Applejack playfully elbowed Big Macintosh.
Big Macintosh nudged open the door stepped into the bar. Applejack's errand had been relatively uneventful, so he had plenty of time for a drink at the pub. Three of the customers at a table looked up from their beers and greeted him; they were also stallions that worked on a farm. The Punch Bowl was the only bar in Ponyville, and served as the usual meeting spot for farmers. But Macintosh was m
Raven Wing Stardust"Booo! Get off the stage!" The brown, spiky haired stallion yelled. His words were echoed by those around him. They could be heard amidst the murmur of the crowd, which had taken a turn for the worst. Soon they got up from where they were standing and swarmed the stage. The offending pony was dragged off and unceremoniously thrown out into the alleyway outside. The ponies turned back to enjoy themselves in the club, but not before the stallion gave her a last warning. "We don't accept your kind here. Don't come again or you'll regret it. The door quickly slammed shut, leaving the poor filly alone.
A single tear rolled out from her eye and slowly slid down her cheek, glistening like a beautiful diamond. It ended at her beautifully sculpted chin, before gravity had its way and the tear fell down to earth, making an elegant harmony in its one splash. A thunderclap from above in the heavens marked the start of rain. It fell drearily, as if to represent her sadness. But the rain hardly touc
The Loss of WordsIt was a bright and sunny morning, not a single cloud in the sky. This bears noting because it meant Rainbow Dash did her job early for once. She did her weather pony duties beforehand so she wouldn't be interrupted from her time against Applejack.
Rainbow Dash and Applejack were always competing with one another. There weren't any negative feelings between them, especially after what happened in the Running of the Leaves, they were merely keeping a friendly rivalry going. Every once in a while, they would come together and try to find something to beat the other pony at. Their meetings usually ended with a challenge issued or a bet made, and today would be no different.
Rainbow Dash flew to the Sweet Apple Acres, where Applejack was waiting outside the barn. "'Bout time ya showed up! Are ya ready fer this week's match?"
"You bet I am! This is going to be awesome!"
Three hours later, the two ponies were lying on the ground, exhausted from the activities they did. This week they compete
