True Vampires pt 1 of 3The bar was dark and nearly deserted. It had unusually large windows for a bar, and they were framed by thick black out curtains. Tonight, the curtains were open, and through the dingy, grimy panes, one could see a crooked branch from a tree outside. Beyond that, there was nothing save for the clouds swirling around a full moon. If the window were moved over by a few feet, to look through it would also display the bar's blinking neon sign. The sign was not supposed to blink. It just did that. And just as well, because it was great for getting the attention of passerby. After all, who could resist a tantalizing name like "Night Life."Of course, this poses the question of why the bar was almost empty. Let's just say, it is very rare for this particular bar to get any repeat visitors. The dusty interior quickly turned most folks away. This was not the sort of place whe
Attack of the Ninja BunniesThe world was now at the mercy of the notorious ninja bunnies. What had started innocently enough as a series of experiments in genetic mutation and Japanese pop culture was fast becoming a danger that threatened to take down modern society. I, for one, am thrilled. I mean, really, does anybody actually like modern society? It's just one big rat race with a side of popularity contest and a generous dash of pollution for good measure. I say, welcome, ninja bunny apocalypse. Still... Still, it is always wise to have a back up plan.That is why we at Kaiju Tech Labs designed the ultimate battle machine in ninja bunny warfare. Let's see those cotton-tailed, carrot munching, shuriken throwing little buggers hop within a mile of this city. They've got no chance so long as we have Super Ultra Hyper Mega Tech Giant Flying Octopus (TM) on our side. Boo yeah!But, alas and alack, Super Ultra Hyper

A Precious Rainbow, Part 3'A Precious Rainbow'by milesprower063.1 - A CRACK IN THE CASETwo sets of hooves raced down the dirt path towards the finish line. One set light brown; the other set cyan blue. Neither was giving an inch. The uproar of cheers from all around grew louder as the finish drew ever closer."I'm not gonna just give this to ya, Rainbow. I respect ya too much to do that. You're gonna have to take it."SUGARCUBE CORNERONE WEEK EARLIERWhen Twilight walked into Sugarcube Corner, she was surprised to see a few ponies making purchases."Oh, why hello there, Twilight. What brings you here today?" Mrs. Cake greeted."Well, I heard the crime scene investigation is complete, they got everything cleaned up, and that they allowed you two to open shop again. Just thought I'd stop by and see how everything's going."Mrs. Cake finished the transaction of the current customer at the pony and bid them a good day."It's been a little slower than usual, which I suppose is to be expected. But the general bel
A Precious Rainbow, Part 2'A Precious Rainbow'by milesprower062.1 THE SLEEPOVERSWEET APPLE ACRES FARMHOUSETHE NEXT MORNINGApplejack was up bright and early at the crack of dawn. She went straight to the kitchen, and began preparing breakfast. Twenty minutes later, she quietly came into the guest room, where Rainbow was just getting up with a yawn."Rise n' shine, Rainbow. Got ya some breakfast here." Applejack greeted, setting a tray of hay, oats, a fresh apple, and apple juice on the nightstand next to her bed."How'd ya sleep?" she asked."A little here, a little there. Just tossed and turned all night." Rainbow replied, starting into her breakfast."Also, when you're done eatin', here." Applejack said, setting a hairbrush next to the tray on the nightstand."A brush?" Rainbow inquired."Yeah. Your hair's a mess. Might want to fix that." AJ answered with a chuckle."I'mma get Apple Bloom off to school. Give a holler if ya need anything."As Applejack left the room and left the door open, Rainbow t
Today is the DayToday is the Day‘Today is the day.’ Fluttershy thought as she made her way towards Sweet Apple Acres. Today was the day she had finally worked up the courage to go tell the stallion of her dreams how she felt about him.‘Why did TODAY have to be the day!’ she thought as she ducked behind a crate along the road to the farm her crush lived and worked on. Taking a deep breath she began trying to gather her courage again. This exact scenario had played itself out at least fifteen times now as she walked through Ponyville to get to where she was now.‘Ok. I can do this. All I have to do is find him and tell him how I feel. What’s the worst that...’ knowing herself a bit too well she stopped thinking as quickly as she could and began walking again to try and ignore where her mind might go.~~~~‘Today is another day...’ Caramel thought, rather downtrodden, ‘another day working hard. Alone.’ A frown found its way to his muzzle
Teamwork is Magic: Chapter 3Dash grabbed the freshly-modded scattergun, specifically made for hooves instead of hands. Engi had made special weapons for all of them, capping it off by modding the regenerator so that the ponies could respawn. He even modded some of the clothes to fit the equines. Everyone stood around, firing their weapons to get a feel. Once they were ready, one by one they ran out the door.Of Course, Dash was out first, flying over the bridge, past the enemy respawn, and down their spiral."I'll just run in, grab the intel, and run out. Easy" She peeked in, and the sight that greeted her was not a good one: A level three sentry pointed directly at her. She screamed and ducked behind the corner as the rockets missed by inches. "Okay, maybe not so easy. At least no Engi's were around. That would have been embarrassing""HI DASH!" Pinkie yelled right behind her. She jumped backwards, back into the sentry's sight."PINKIE! wait..." She looked around as the sentry beeped to confirm her pr
A Precious Rainbow, Epilogue'A Precious Rainbow'by milesprower06EPILOGUETHE IRON PONYTwo sets of hooves raced down the dirt path towards the finish line. One set light brown; the other set cyan blue. Neither was giving an inch. The uproar of cheers from all around grew louder as the finish drew ever closer."I'm not gonna just give this to ya, Rainbow. I respect ya too much to do that. You're gonna have to take it." Applejack managed to say through her heavy breathing."I...don't expect anything less!" Rainbow replied, equally tired, ready for this to be over.The cheering came from all around. From the spectators to the left and right, from the front behind the finish line...Even the racers behind them were cheering the two leaders on. It was almost deafening.The race had been just like last year's, except without all the trickery that had caused them to tie for last. To be sure, this was going to be a race to remember. The finish was just seconds away. Rainbow's heart pounded against her chest.A photo fi
