MLP - Campaign Intro - NLRCampaign Intro - New Lunar Republic
Many years ago, a poet once wrote... "Out with the old, in with the new."
For all we know, he could've been writing about us...
...of Princess Luna and the New Lunar Republic of the far future.
Almost an entire millennium has passed by and nothing seems to have changed on this planet.
Everyday used to be the usual, dull routine of ponies living happily and ruling well while all other species are downtrodden or simply ignored as part of some status quo.
And for that, the ponies of Equestria have become the envy of lesser beings.
If only you could see past all the facades and behold the truth for yourself, you would most certainly think otherwise.
And the truth lies in the story of our Lunar Highness.
Ever since I've heard that story for myself, I have learned to know hate and contempt...
...towards a creature that speaks of pride and honour, that fosters the love of his subjects, that smiles and scrapes at every act of obedience, an
MLP - Campaign Intro - SKCampaign Intro - Solar Kingdom
I've been in the service of her highness for many years now.
It is my task to command and lead her armies to bring order and protection to the Solar Kingdom.
My father did this before me with pride and distinction. As did his father before him.
For thousands of years, Equestria has known peace and stability under the benevolent rule of Princess Celestia.
It is under her guidance that everypony has lived happily, ate heartily, and worked diligently tending to the orchards and fields which are the breadbaskets and lifeblood of this Kingdom.
We are her children. And she loves us all. This is how life was in Equestria and how it should be.
But all of that came to an end... with the return of the Mare in the Moon.
Refusing to allow her authority to be usurped and allow everypony in Equestria to suffer under her vengeful rule, Princess Celestia dispatched the six elements of harmony to stop her.
But in a cruel twist of fate, the elements beca
MLP - DespairTwilight Sparkle's Despair
Twilight Sparkle: Princess Celestia... *Eyes well up with tears* ...I've failed you...
Twilight Sparkle: Nightmare Moon attacked us... and we tried to fight back against her... with the elements of harmony...
Twilight Sparkle: But... *tears running down* ...she was too powerful...
Twilight Sparkle: And now... Rarity... Rainbow Dash... Fluttershy... Pinkie Pie... and Applejack...
Twilight Sparkle: ...all of my best friends... are dead...
Twilight Sparkle: ...I'm the only one left...
Overtaken by emotion, Twilight Sparkle collapses to the floor in a uncontrollable fit of sobbing as Princess Celestia looks on in silence with a tinge of sadness in her eyes.
Twilight Sparkle: WHYYYYYYYYY...!?!? Whyyyyyyy.....!? Why did this have to happen...!?
Princess Celestia: .....I am so sorry for you, Twilight Sparkle... I truly am.
Princess Celestia: I will miss them very dearly as much as you will...
Princess Celestia: And I can only imagine what horribl
Equestria Divided - Everfree DruidsThe Unicorn caste of House Everfree that draws their magic power from the supernatural essence of Everfree Forest itself.
Druids are able to change into animal forms, snare their foes with roots or harden their skin like petrified tree bark as well as being able to shape the trees and stone and make friends with the animals around them.
It is with these skills, the use of this druidic magic, and their affinity for nature that they survive in this age of madness and destruction.
Equestria Divided - Everfree BeastmastersThe beastmasters of House Everfree are feared and respected among their kin for their supernatural talent in taming and controlling the most dangerous creatures that reside in the deepest parts of the vast Forest.
As the main combat arm of House Everfree, their duties range from scouting and fast attack (for the small and swift-moving beasts) to all-out frontal defense and assault (for the very big and very heavy beasts).
Any opponent who has the sanity and wit to trifle with House Everfree would do well to prioritize the elimination of the beastmasters before they are given a chance to unleash the immeasurable savagery of their formidable mounts and bring them to bear upon the foals unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of their wrath.
Equestria Divided - Laughing GassersDeep within the ranks of the Cult of Laughter is a collective of scientists and engineers, all of them defectors who were desperate to escape ostracism and poverty so that they could continue their work without fear of starvation and persecution for their radical ideas.
Accepted into the Cult in exchange for their loyalty and services, they work day in and day out to build and maintain essential machines, whether stolen or built from scratch, as well as researching and developing new devices that will help to further the goals of the Cult.
And one of the worst things to have been spawned from their ingenuity are chemical weapons, a completely strange and new concept of destructive potential that is just waiting to be unleashed by the Cult.
Among these chemical weapons is an insidious formula that was approved and chosen by the Council as the Cult's greatest instrument of their patron god, The Laughing Mare.
Although it is an elaborate composition of unknown mixtures that goes by many n

Twilight Sparkle... I think I finally understand now... your accident with that storm spell... not only did it cause Dash to end up in this world... but it somehow caused her to go backwards in age... which caused her to become a filly... and lose her memories of her actual life in Equestria... before the accident.
I understand now... that you've come here trying to correct your mistakes... but... to find Rainbow Dash... to take her in and raise her for 15 years as my own daughter, even though she's not a human... and she doesn't belong here... she IS the greatest thing that has EVER happened in my life... so great... I can't even bear to imagine... where the both of us would be right now... if I hadn't found her on that day... if that accident didn't take place...
So I ask of you... as her... adoptive father... can you really bring yourself... to violate your friend, Rainbow Dash...?

Lunar Republic vs Celestial EmThe Lunar Republic vs The Celestial Empire
"The wine is lovely this year, Madame Berry Grape." Celestia gave a short nod to the bowing pony. The wine was, in fact, not lovely this year. It was simply what a princess was supposed to say at the Autumn Equinox Banquet.
At this function, like most, the aristocracy played a traditional and subtle game of which-pony-was-better-than-which, a ferociously competitive sport of tiny score keeping. If you sit one space closer to the princess, you are one point better. If you wore a dress not haute couture, you lost a point. If your hat had an extra feather, you had an extra point, unless you attempted a power play by foregoing feathers and trying a coiffure done by a famous mane stylist, though that was a risky move. Fumbling through a step on the dance floor was an easy way to lose points, though that was never an issue, since no one ever danced for fear of subtracting their score. Winners were allowed to hold their noses in inc
Confessions and ConsiderationsConfessions and Considerations
A light blue blur with colorful streaks flowing out from behind it fell from the sky. The speed of the fall appeared to be too fast for what was safe, and the form was speeding towards the ground at an alarming rate. Staring at the blurred, falling form, a certain earth pony couldn't help but feel a twinge of pure terror. Even as she watched the rainbow-colored comet streak towards the ground a ways in front of her she could see what was to happen. She knew full well in her heart what was bound to happen, she would be too late, she could never reach that spot in time. She couldn't help but feel the jerk in her stomach as she watched her friend plummet towards the ground in front of her. Time had seemed to slow down, her hooves hit the surface beneath her, propelling her towards the spot where the blur seemed to be about to hit. The blur fell ever closer and closer towards that spot, and her heart was in her throat when she saw contact was made. She had fu
Dinner Date pt. 1Another day, another sky to clear. That thought kept passing through Rainbow Dash's mind as she flew about Ponyville kicking clouds. She would look down and see other ponies going about their business, and Rainbow would notice that, once again, other pegasus ponies wouldn't fly as high as her. 'I bet those ponies couldn't reach Cloudsdale if they tried,' she thought to herself.
From this height, she could see the extent of her work, and she figured that it was enough for today. She planned to settle in for a nap, but something caught her attention. This something happened to be a yellow pegasus flying into Ponyville, and while Rainbow knew that her friend, Fluttershy, often flew into town, this was the first time she'd seen her fly at this speed. "She looks like a pony on a mission," Rainbow said.
Opting to investigate instead of taking a nap, she flew down toward her friend.
"Hey Fluttershy," Rainbow Dash shouted, "Where're you off to?"
Slightly shaken Fluttershy looked u
Him Part 1The Dashing Rainbow soared through the sky in her awesome-powered hyper-carriage towards the not-so-secret-anymore hideout of her latest enemy: The Egghead Unicorn! "This is for you President Fluttershy," The Dashing Rainbow said to herself as she flew toward this new loser's base, "Nopony holds my friend's library card hostage! Nopony!"
The loser hideout was in sight. The Dashing Rainbow ensured that she had enough egghead repellent on. Though she was immune to all forms of losery, eggheadery, drawlery, and even snootery, President Fluttershy insisted she protect herself.
With a final increase of the throttle, The Dashing Rainbow leapt out of the carriage and fell effortlessly into the gaping hole that was left in its wake. The carriage itself was beyond repair and cost 15 rainbillion bits. That was a number accountants had to invent just so they could count The Dashing Rainbow's wealth. One rainbillion is a one
Common Sky - Part 3The breeze blew past Luna's ears as she enjoyed Twilight's warmth against her. Her eyes were closed, focusing intently on this feeling of closeness that was so new and terrifying to her. She didn't know if she was doing the right thing, or if she was being too affectionate or forward. Luna didn't know what being somepony's 'friend' was like, or how she was supposed to act. Luna had dreamt about this moment for so long, and couldn't pass up the opportunity, no matter if wrecked everything else. Sharing this beautiful night she had created with somepony was the only thing that she had hoped for in her long life. In this moment, she was content with just this. Under the sea of stars, with streaks of fire and waves of light challenging the daytime in pure brilliance, Luna was finally at peace. Her dream had come true. Nightmare Moon was wrong.
"Ahem," spoke a familiar, dark voice. Luna's eyes shot wide open and she stepped back, looking around. She was in that familiar, damp, dark corridor
The Element of Betrayal -Ch.1-"Oh, come on, Twilight, you know I'm old enough to go with you", said Spike, as Twilight Sparkle set a book in her saddlebag. "I've been with you on way more dangerous stuff than this before."
"I know, Spike, but there's no reason to let anything bad happen to you. The goblet Princess Celestia wants me to find is deep in the Evertree Forest, and I wouldn't want us to get seperated and have you run into a cockatrice or something."
Twilight continued to pack.
"Besides, you shouldn't be lonely; Rainbow Dash will be here all night."
"Not by choice, mind you." Rainbow Dash stated while scanning the library for anything that would catch her interest. "Apparently, there was a parasprite hiding in my walls and it multiplied, so Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie have to escort them all out of there. They say it's going to be an all-nighter."
"But..." Spike started, but stopped himself, because he knew it would be no use. Twilight started out the door.
"OK, Rainbow Dash, I don't know when I'll be b
The Stylist and The Introvert
Fluttershy sat outside her hut, the sun shining down on her. She relished in glorious days like this, there was just something about that made her feel so fantastic. She surveyed the landscape; all of her little animal friends seemed to be enjoying it as much as she was. Bunnies chased each other through the various floras, while birds soared overhead. She wished that everyday could be like this, although if that happened there might be serious repercussions for the environment. Starting to lose herself in the tranquility of the meadow, Fluttershy snapped back to her senses, only to realise she was supposed to meet Rarity at her boutique. In one swift movement, she shattered the peaceful atmosphere by charging towards her destination. Fluttershy wanted to turn back and apologise to her friends but that would make her late for her appointment, and she'd hate to disappoint Rarity as well. Onward she went, not stopping for any reason, until she reached Rarity's place of work.
Once there s
True Feelings Realised.
Twilight sat up and stretched. She had just spent the best part of
three hours studying.
Around her were piles upon piles of dusty old tomes, ranging from local
history in the past one hundred years, to the origin of their species.
So far she had only managed to get through the one book, but she had a
free day, so she was certain she could blast through another seven or
so. She continued her stretching,listening to her joints crack into place.
Finally she stood up properly, giving her tail a playful flick as she
did. She did a quick scan of the room and quickly noticed something was
wrong.She couldn't see Spike anywhere, although it was rare for him to
leave without annoucing it.
Across the room, a few books shifted and Twilight was certain she heard
a low groan. She darted over the numerous book piles to where the groan
had come from. She nudged a few books away to reveal a small purple
The books shuddered again and Twilight nudged them away until all that
A Quiet Confession"No Pinkie," Rainbow said, "I'm not doing it!"
"But Dashie," Pinkie protested, "If you don't tell her you'll never be happy."
"I know," Rainbow said looking down, "But Fluttershy's been my friend since we were fillies. She knows everything about me." There was more to it than that. Fluttershy was the only pony who Rainbow could drop the brave face and allow herself to be vulnerable. 'Fluttershy let's me just be me,' Rainbow thought, 'I love her, but I can't.' She shook her head and said flatly, "I ask too much from Fluttershy as it is. I can't ask this from her."
"But," Pinkie said, "What if she likes you too?" She remembered the day Rainbow told her she was in love with Fluttershy. Rainbow had returned from a picnic with Fluttershy and looked sad. When Pinkie asked her what was bothering her, Rainbow swore her to secrecy and told her that she was in love with Fluttershy. Pinkie was stunned and asked if she told her and she began to cry. Pinkie had never seen Rainbow cry and this just
MLP - Campaign Endgame - NLRCampaign Endgame - New Lunar Republic
Equestria, once a marvelous land of love and magic, is now a tattered battlescape of bruises, scars, ashes, and blood.
All of this damage was brought about not just by the tides of war, but by the weak leadership, poor decisions, and bad luck of the self-destructed Solar Kingdom.
Princess Celestia, who has squandered the potential of this land in the vain and desperate attempts of fighting off the vitality and volatility of change, ended up drowning in blood along with her subjects and the old and dying order they tried so blindly to preserve against the inevitable.
A hypocrite who once spoke in condemnation of treachery against her has finally paid the ultimate price for her own treachery and stubbornness.
And for that, we can find no higher comfort and satisfaction in knowing that truth and justice have prevailed.
We must now put away our weapons and take up the tools and jobs needed to restore Equestria to its former glory.
ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
to crumble up
the remnant pieces
of my love for you
and throw them in the trash
but I'm such a bad shot.
Keep in Touch!
