“So you placed him with Vinyl Scratch and Lyra Heartstrings?” Spitfire asked as she reviewed the report that now lay across her desk. “These two have lackluster at best performances. I think it would stifle his growth if he’s constantly having to pick up their slack.”
“Well,” Soarin’ began to explain, the stallion shifting in his seat as he grew wary of his decision now that it came under Spitfire’s scrutiny. “I’m hoping that he’ll be able to motivate them and help elevate these two mares, and the way I see it, if he’s picking up the slack, like you say, he’ll have to work harder and I think we’ll see him up his own game.”

Rainbow Dash searched the mirror in front of her for any signs of imperfection. She had brushed her mane for a good twenty minutes and for once in life her it didn’t look like she just rolled out of bed. Her white blazer top was pristine, not a single blemish, wrinkle or stain to be found. Her saddle skirt, while tight, still conformed to regulation and her tail, which had received the same amount of love her mane did protruded nicely, not a single strand out of place. Her silver horseshoes glistened from being polished for what felt like hours the night before, however the payoff was well worth it as they shimmered brightly. Rainbow couldn’t help but wonder how much Rarity would have paid to see her in heels, but here she was, dressed to the nines in the Equestrian Naval Officer Dress White uniform, short heels and all. For a brief moment she lamented at her parents turni

The mare was in trouble.
She squared off against a slightly larger, pink coated mare, both of them standing on their hind legs, fore hooves raised in defense as the two of them were surround in a makeshift circle by their spectators. She coughed, an earlier punch to her stomach had left her winded and was still reaping its toll by depriving her of a full breath every time she tried to suck in. Her right eye burned angrily as it twitched rapidly from her forcing it open when it begged to stay shut, a strong left hook had seen to that and the unicorn could only hope it would darken to black eye against her white coat. With the hoots, hollers, cheers and jeers coming from all around her growing louder and louder as even the crowd knew that this fight was almost over, she gritted her

“Lot on your mind?”
“You have no idea.”
“Anything I can do to help?”
“Not really, this is one of those things that I gotta figure out on my own. I just wish it wasn’t so hard, but I gotta do it. I have to choose.”
“Well, I know you’ll make the right choice Thunder,” Flitter replied. The whole way back from the Crystal Empire, Thunderlane had been distant with the lilac pegasus. She allowed herself a small smile as she recalled falling asleep, held close by

With Rarity exiting the library, it marked the last of her friends to leave as Twilight bid them all her farewells and shut the door behind them. Turning around, Twilight faced the two remaining occupants, Flash Sentry, who sat quietly on her couch twiddling his fore hooves together offering Twilight a polite smile and Foxtrot, who lay on his belly on the opposite side of the room against the bookcase who looked at her with a mixture of sadness and nervousness. Rarity had informed Twilight that Spike was out with the crusaders and that she would intercept him before his return and explain everything to the baby dragon, relieving Twilight of one less burden. Which subsequently left her with the nigh impossible task of navigating through the rest of the ordeals that where currently piled on her plate.

Rainbow Dash wasn’t fond of Luna’s plan. The cyan pegasus wouldn’t say she was close to Foxtrot, but she did respect him and know him well enough to know that what they were doing was wrong and bothered him a great deal. However, given the circumstances, she also understood why it might be best to hide the truth from Celestia. So while she may have agreed silently by giving Twilight a knowing nod, as did the rest of her friends sans Apple Jack, and she knew that it was probably the easiest way for Twilight to figure out how to handle her predicament, she didn’t like it. Not one bit. Once more, she couldn’t blame Apple Jack for storming out of the library and slamming the door behind her as she went.
She sighed as she saw Twilight embrace the downtrodden wolf. She wanted to help, but she had a serious problem of her own, a problem that went by the name of Spitfire. The Won

“The charges you face today are of the most gravest nature; treason, as well as consorting and aiding dark forces that conspire to insight chaos and cause calamity,” the aged, yet powerful voice that belonged to Lord Graywing echoed throughout the great council chamber. “As such, the crime levied against you is treason. You stand before us, Princess Luna, to face judgment for your acts of betrayal against your people, your kingdom and against this esteemed royal council. You are to understand the only acceptable forms of punishment that can set even the scales of betrayal are death or banishment. Have you any words to say on your defense of these heinous crimes?”
Princess Luna faced him, facing them all, with a silent defiant anger. She stood tall, proud and unafraid under the eyes of the council that were preparing to sentence her. She was vested in her traditional breastplate and horseshoes, her crown firmly upon her head as her eyes looked across the semi-cir

Sonic and Rainbow Dash hurtled through space towards the planet seeking desperately to halt this deadly gambit the Doctor had played. It wasn’t long before they had caught up with Metal Sonic, who had a fist buried deep into one of the warheads, yanking out wires and components before leaping away and watching the large rocket erupt in a small explosion into scrap.
“We must hurry,” the robot announced catching sight of the two of them. “If we can get to the missiles before they reach the upper atmosphere, they won’t have reached their terminal Area of Effect. The nuclear payload will be disengaged before it reaches that distance. I calculate we have less than three minutes to stop them before they reach that point. Move with speed and sense of purpose.” After Metal had given them this instruction, he blasted off to the next rocket.
“You heard the bot Sonic, you need to move with speed, so you better keep up!” Rainbow Dash taunted as she t

“Are you kidding me?” Shadow chuckled. “Metal Sonic? This is your ace in the hole? I will give you some credit Sonic, I did not see this one coming! How did you manage to get bucket head over here on your side?”
“What can I say Shadow?” Sonic smiled back at him. “He wanted to be on the winning team.”
“Wow Sonic, Your definition of winning has changed over the years.” Shadow shot back.
“Metal,” Sonic whispered to his newest ally. “You ready?”
“Affirmative,” he responded in his cold monotone voice.
“You really think this idea will work?” Rainbow Dash questioned.
“Negative. It merely presents the best opportunity for success,” Metal answered.
“Oh, well that’s certainly most reassuring thing I’ve heard all day,” Rainbow Dash commented back sarcastically.
“Prepare to follow my lead,” Metal announced as his thrusters kicked in and gently

Shadow landed in front of Sonic and Rainbow Dash, bringing his hands together and outstretching his palms to crack his knuckles. He then began to massage his right shoulder with his left and as he rotated his right arm in circular motion.
“I’m going high,” Sonic informed the Rainbow Dash.
“Then I’ll hit ‘em low,” she confirmed.
“Oh good, you gotta plan, hope it works out for ya,” Shadow said confidently, before his face twisted into a mischievous grin. “Let’s start this party off with a bang!” he yelled out as he gathered energy in his right hand and hurled a supercharged Chaos Spear at the ground between them. Sonic and Rainbow evacuated their location just as the ground exploded with a fiery blast that sent chunks of rock flying through the air. The two split and went in separate directions, both creating sonic booms in their wake as they left golden and rainbow colored trails behind their respective selves. The

Shattered glass, rocks, and debris were scattered about as a sonic boom erupted in the streets of Baltimare as Shadow flew towards Sonic, right hand cocked back, fist balled tightly, as he closed the gap between himself and his adversary in the blink of an eye and yelled as he unloaded his attack.
Sonic grinned as he rolled his right shoulder back, letting Shadow’s attack sail past him harmlessly and exposing his entire body for a counter-attack. Sonic fired off a punch of his own, aimed at Shadow’s unprotected jaw. However, Shadow saw his attack, blocked by raising his left elbow and letting the blow strike his forearm instead. Sonic gritted his teeth and pushed himself back away from Shadow before flying away from him. Shadow chuckled at Sonic’s quick retreat and gave chase. Sonic ducked and weaved through the city, bouncing off walls, light poles and any other piece of the city he could find footing against. Shadow was hot on his heels, but that was the plan Sonic

“I am Princess Celestia,” she announced to the being in front of her. “Ruler of all Equestria. These atrocities you have committed in my lands are unforgivable, and you will face justice for these crimes!”
“Oh? What are you gonna do? Beat me up with cupcakes and rainbows?” the monster replied with a grin, casually walking closer. “My name is Shadow, and you haven’t even begun to see the ‘atrocities’ I can commit.”
“You will stop!” Celestia shot back at Shadow’s threat of death and destruction. She knew this would not end without violence, but she knew from the reports that he could absorb her magic. Then an idea crossed her mind and she put her plan into motion. “I am the Goddess of the Sun, the most powerful of Alicorns! I have driven evil from these lands once before Shadow; I will not hesitate to use every ounce of power at my disposal to purge you from my kingdom as well!” As she spoke h

Character Profile: Soarin'Character Profile: Soarin' by Gunflame345
Rainbow Dash opened her eyes to see a gleaming silver spear ripping through the wolf's chest and his fresh blood dripping down on to her chest. A moment later he was hoisted up into the air, still whimpering and tossed aside. Dash was bewildered at the sight, even more at her savior.
Soarin' turned his attention to the griffon that was now dive-bombing towards him. He swung his spear and its bladed tip caught the griffon in the chest sending it careening off with a spurt of red mist arcing across the sky. The griffon stood back up and launched towards the Wonderbolt. Soarin' switched his grip on the spear and hurled at the griffon. His aim was true, it buried itself deep in the beast's sternum. Panting heavily he turned to see if Dash was okay.
"Soarin'?! Soarin' how did you-"
"Derpy found me and told me you needed help, I came as fast as I could..."

“Wha, what are you gonna do?” Spitfire said, still not sure what to make of all this.
“I’m gonna save the world.” he said, not so much a statement as it was a promise.

“Whatever,” she replied loudly while rolling her eyes. “Fact is, he’s got no wings and he can’t swim, he’s not even a pony.” Then, with an evil grin at Soarin’, she drove her point home. “If he were my foal, I would have drowned him at birth.”
The Simple Life Chapter 6
Cruel, cold-hearted, and ruthlessly competent, Lightning Dust was the premier cadet at the Wonderbolt Academy who excelled at every task that Equestria's Finest could throw at her.

NOW this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,|
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
