One would think that Ponyville, in its centuries-long history, had seen plenty of strange events. One wouldn’t be too far off, but the vast majority of said events had occurred since the previous Summer Sun Celebration and the thankfully brief return of Nightmare Moon. Since the start of spring in particular, the town had seen itself briefly in the grip of a possessed unicorn performer, two visits from the Spirit of Chaos himself, a charity rock concert that swiftly turned into a small family reunion, and the ascension of one of its newest residents from humble unicorn to Equestria’s fourth reigning alicorn princess, in no particular order. Some experiences were more enjoyable than others, but the town and its citizens had become accustomed to them and acted accordingly, with some taking it in stride better than others.
As another Summer Sun Celebration came along, this time celebrating the restoration of the Equestrian Diarchy after a

If the Autobots and humans are forging an alliance, there’s very little stopping them from attacking.”Revelations SE - 12B of 52 by EchoWing
“Except for us.” If Megatron had any concern about the human military forces, it was very well hidden as he looked upon his Decepticons with confidence. “These humans cannot begin to match us in military might, and I’d laugh if they even made an attempt. Besides, whatever spine they had for conflict has long been lost. Cyclonus, Thrust, head towards the facility and make certain that it is wiped off the map! Wheeljack, if there are any Autobots in the area, make certain they are permanently dealt with this time! Skywarp–!”
A loud explosion caught Megatron’s attention, and he turned towards a nearby hill as a familiar voice taunted him. “Sorry to

“You must be insane!” Not even a critical glance from Vector Prime was able to dissuade King Atlas from continuing to scoff at the idea. “Spark extractors?! New bodies for those two idiots?! Hot Shot shouldn’t have even gone to Earth in the first place, and Smokescreen was suicidal for even thinking of–!”
“Can it be done?”
Before the ivory Autobot could protest his interruption, the ancient Prime turned to Jetfire. “The theory is sound. I see no reason why it should not at least be attempted.”
A glint of joy was just visible in the shuttle’s optics. “That’s all I needed to hear. Check with the Forge and see what you can find. I’ll call ahead and let them know you’re coming.”
A grateful nod, and Vector Prime turned to depart from the Autobot second-in-command’s office. Turning to his fellow f

“Me and my big mouth.”
Those words escaped Sunset Shimmer’s lips as she considered her current predicament, and suddenly wished that she hadn’t said anything about the matter to Principal Celestia. It suddenly occurred to her that this world’s Celestia probably had an impish sense of humor akin to her counterpart. Why else would she point her here?
She sighed. This is what she got for realizing that she needed to get a job.
Before her was a corner storefront, the awning decorated with the legend “Ndani ya Mchaji”. Sunset didn’t know what it meant, but the words reminded her of what little she’d heard of one of the dominant Zebrican languages. The shop itself had a whispered reputation at Canterlot High, with the Eco Kids occasionally mentioning having visited for one reason or another but most avoiding it. She herself had never frequented it, but then again, she ne

Many years had passed for Celestia since she’d last traveled through Star Swirl’s first mirror, but not a day went by that she didn’t think of the world left behind and wonder how things were progressing there, or how things were for the stallion she loved. On this particular night, she looked up into the stars, the moon a waxing crescent just as it had been then. So much had changed in this world, in one way or another, and she suspected it was much the same there. Perhaps Sombra had moved on since then. And perhaps it was time she…
“Do you know why it is called a ‘waxing’ crescent?” Shock was clear on her face as she turned to see her addressor, a familiar pair of green eyes matching the familiar voice as he continued, “Because for a long time, the word ‘waxing’ was more associated with fullness than with removal, particularly in regards to food preservation.”

Celestia sighed sadly as she raised the sun over Canterlot, Luna having already caused the moon to set. Normally, the act brought her comfort, a constant in an inconstant world, but today, with the skies having not only retained their sickly green stain and only seeming to grow worse, what ease she felt was nonexistent. “Luna, you had best get some rest. It will be a very long day.”
Her sister gently hugged her with one wing. “Celie, I can stand a long day. What I cannot stand is leaving you alone to face this.” She smiled as Kibitz arrived with a cart, tea and cookies laid out and ready. “For the time being, perhaps our morning tea? Some cake?”
The Princess of the Sun smiled. “That will help, yes.”
In Sombra’s Canterlot, Twilight and her friends were gathered with their allies, rested and enjoying a simple breakfast. “So, we all understand the plan?

Not too distant from Canterlot, as Sombra spoke with his guests, the Dual Stronghold, once known as the Castle of the Two Sisters, stood near Ponyville. The Everfree Forest had long been cleared away, its inhabitants forced to flee to the four corners of Equestria and take refuge where they could after its owners had returned. Those who escaped were lucky, a scant few remaining as indentured servants.
Celestia violently claimed her drink, the fawn who’d produced it flinching and inching away as quickly as he could, stone-faced guards watching as he left with a zebra companion. She idly sipped and noted, “Aren’t you curious about Sombra’s new little friends?”
“I’ve seen them about the village, though I’d swear the orange earth pony mare wears a different hat.” Luna considered things from her perch at the organ and noted, “And tha

“We’re better off waiting for whoever rules in this Canterlot to arrive, and then straighten things out from there.” The door to their cell opened and the old mage noted, “Ah, perfect timing.”
“Good morrow, newcomers.” Celestia turned to their host, his deep baritone intriguing her, and her eyes widened at the sight of him. “Welcome to Canterlot. I am King Sombra.” The handsome grey stallion before them bore a surprised look upon his face as he examined them. “Please, forgive me if I seem surprised, but the two of you bear remarkable resemblances to other ponies I know. But you cannot be them.”
“Oh, can we not?” The elderly unicorn bowed slightly in introduction. “I am Star Swirl the Bearded, and my traveling companion is Princess Celestia. We are travelers from another world.” As Celestia looked upon him in surprise, he asked, “What?

Soft moans escaped her lips as Celestia regained consciousness, her vision blurry and obscured by a bandage across her right eye. She heard some relieved sighs, her sister’s the most familiar, and gently assured them, “I’m alright, everypony, thank you.” She then turned to her left to find the one who was tending her wounds, her finery laid beside assorted medical supplies. “Thank you, Kibitz.”
“You’re quite welcome, your Highness.” The old unicorn looked to her with a weary expression and asked, “But please, whatever you’ve gotten yourself into, try not to do it again? I’m far too old for this. Now, if you’ve no further need for my services?”
“No, thank you, you’re dismissed.” She waited for her aide to depart, then turned to her fellow royals and remaining subjects and continued, “Luna, Twilight, I…”

“Okay, explain it to me again.”
Twilight Sparkle laughed as she gestured upwards with a hoof, her wings drawn tight against her sides. “Tonight’s lunar phase is called a ‘waxing crescent’. Sometime next week, it’ll be a half-moon, and then it’ll phase into a ‘waxing gibbous’, and then a full moon.” She smiled and noted, “One down, twenty-nine to go.”
It was a crisp spring evening in Canterlot proper, the moon hanging overhead in the night’s sky and only the odd cloud dotting the nightscape. Twilight smiled, knowing full well that Princess Luna was no doubt proud of the work she’d put into the evening sky and glad that she could enjoy them. They’d been nice prior to her return, of course, but now that she was back, they’d been spectacular.
“I still don’t get it.” While the beauty of the night wasn’t lost on
