As the Wheel Turns
Snips and Snails were dripping sweat as they struggled to drag along the heavy wooden cart that dug into the ground. The cart plowed up the dirt and left a sizable trench in its wake. They looked at one another, tired and worn out from pulling the new tyrant of ponyville to the edge of the forcefield. They stopped for a moment to take a quick break. As soon as they had stopped, a glowing red whip snapped at their backsides from mid-air.
"Pull you fools!" the whip snapped it at them twice more. "Somepony set off the magic forcefield and Trixie intends to punish them!" shouted Trixie as she prepared to whip her subjects once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.
Trixie's head snapped up and he

It's Okay to be a Brony
There are plenty of reasons why a guy would want to hide the fact that he is a brony. But one should not have to hide who they are because of what others will think. I came to this realization about a month ago. I am tired of hiding who I am, I'm a brony dammit, and proud of it!
The breath left my body as the fist drove hard into my stomach. My eyes crossed as I took a blow to the face. Now on my knees, I lifted my arms up in an attempt to shield myself from the brutal beating. I would have called for help, but they followed me from school. Why do people get bullied for being different or liking something that someone else doesn't?
"Keep out of our way girly boy," sneered the larger as he kicked me real hard in the ribs. "We would hate to accidentally hit a girl."
"What a loser," the other chimed in. "What kind of guy likes my little pony? I'm totally telling everyone about this," he chuckled as he snapped a picture of me on his phone.
They left laughing

Stirring. Moving. Awakening.
This was a rare occurrence, it has happened only twice since the creation of Equestria.
When too much evil gathers together, she appears.
She is the balance.
She stirs as she chooses her form.
The power was weakening now, all throughout the world, all of it was waning, to make room for this new force.
All throughout the world, power was weakening drastically, but nopony noticed.
They weren't meant to notice.
The energy would be gone and ponies would adapt, simply not attempt to do things they would normally be able to do.
But it would not be gone forever, just long enough for her to exist.
The energy would have to be taken to assume a corporeal form. Power would be drained more from those who had much more than others, to keep the balance.
She was apart of everything, giving life, balancing it.
The time would soon be upon her, she must be prepared.
She felt for her six children.
She was contented to find that they were safe.

Ponyville Ghostbusters Chapter 2
It was a typical day the the Ponyville Ghostbusters Headquarters. Everypony was busy and hard at work. Tex and Riotfire were working on the Ecto-B vehicle. Tex, a tall black stallion with a perfectly styled brown mane, had been with the Ponyville Ghostbusters for the past 10 years. It was his life and he would not have it any other way.
"I can't believe B blew a gasket." he said in a gruff voice.
"I know you love it Tex, but B is an old car and it's going to have problems from time to time." replied Riotfire.
Riotfire was the mechanic here at the station, and was also Tex's oldest friend. Grease was usually found staining his lovely brown coat and blue mane, but none was ever found on his wings. Others always asked him why he left it for so long, but the simple answer was that it made him feel clean.
Tex wiped sweat from his brow and found his eyes wandering to locate Cloud Crash. He found her along with Abby over by the proton packs. Abby was a slende
