“I am sorry about what’s happened, dear.” Rarity let out a regretful sigh as she and Sunset waited outside of her home, the pair seated on a porch swing and idly going back and forth. “Of all the immature things to do! Sweetie Belle saw what happened that night, the same as everyone else!”
“There’s seeing and then there’s believing.” Sunset idly rubbed her bare arms, suddenly feeling naked without her trademark leather jacket. She almost laughed at the thought; she rarely wore clothes back in Equestria, but here among humans, she felt uncomfortable with one less bit of clothing on. Maybe she was going native. “And just wait, I get to go through all of that again next Monday once my suspension ends.”
There had been a series of frenzied calls that morning, once Sunset’s clothes had been taken care of and Sweetie Belle properly chastised and punished by her par

The final bell rang loud and clear, enough that it could still be heard over the many young colts and fillies as they eagerly made their way out of the school building. A grand and impressive structure that nonetheless came across as warm and welcoming, the Sunny Days Magic Kindergarten was, for many a young filly and colt, a stepping stone to greater things, with most of its student body going on to its parent school, Princess Celestia’s School for Gifted Unicorns, and a select few of its alumni having gone on to be her personal students. But very few thought of this as they left the building, their saddlebags on their backs and their parents eagerly awaiting them. They only thought of getting home and being with their mommies and daddies, of dinners and story times and of their soft beds.
And one little filly was no exception. With youthful enthusiasm and a gleeful smile upon her face, she charged out th

“I’m withdrawing my application, ma’am.”
Spitfire had heard a number of phrases uttered in her offices at the Wonderbolts Academy, but this was one phrase that rarely reached her ears. She was fresh from having qualified Cloudsdale for the Aerial Relay in the upcoming Equestria Games, and had expected to return to her offices to praise and cheers, not to a young officer holding an application in her office and declaring that she was withdrawing it. “You care to explain yourself…?” she briefly glanced at the rank insignias on the mare’s uniform before continuing, “…Lieutenant…?”
“Sunrunner, ma’am. And I don’t think I need to explain myself. I’m withdrawing my application to join the Wonderbolts.”
Spitfire looked over the mare before her. She was well-built for a pegasus racer, with a light amber coat and cyan eyes, her crimson and yellow m

The trip from Kurt’s home to the Azalea Town Gym was short, almost too short for Alex to go over the match in her head and figure out how things would go. She wasn’t too worried given the homework she’d done, after all, but it helped her to run through scenarios in her head based on what little she knew. What little advantages she could get were better than none, after all.
“So, you ready to go?”
“As ready as I can be at this point.” She took a deep breath as they stepped inside. “I just didn’t expect to have to deal with three opponents today.”
Nicholas took on a nervous expression. “Yeah, sorry about that.”
A grin, and Alex elbowed her boyfriend affectionately as they found themselves inside of what was effectively a large greenhouse. “Nick, I told you, I don’t mind someone having a schoolgirl crush on you. But that’s just one of many reasons wh

“For the record? Getting knocked unconscious might come with the territory, but I’ve never enjoyed it when it happened.” ShadowWarrior shook himself over, still trying to work out the soreness from his last battle. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it wasn’t from that oversized suckerfish, but still, I could’ve done without the blunt force.” He noticed the guilty look on his trainer’s face and amended, “Still, not your fault.”
“Yeah, but I could’ve sent Nadyra in instead, saved you some trouble.” Alex sighed. “It’s a minor miracle you put up with me.”
“Well, you don’t just toss aside awesome and amazing.” The two cast stern looks towards Nicholas, who merely turned nervous as he kept driving their RV. “Wrong time to try the affectionate flirting?”
A smirk crossed both their faces, and Alex noted,

Easily as prominent in Johto’s cultural history as Ecruteak City, the Ilex Forest was a sacred place that many trainers passed through on their journeys, usually north to Goldenrod City but, as in Alex’s case, south to Azalea Town. Densely packed with trees, many travelers along the way could swear that they caught sight of Pokémon of legend as they passed through. Whether that was the result of the shrine dedicated to Celebi at the forest’s midpoint or the cause was a matter of debate.
Right now, as she sat digesting her meal with her boyfriend and their collected Pokémon, Alex couldn’t care less, simply glad for a peaceful day and a pleasant meal. “I love days like this. No chaos, no craziness, no distractions, just peace and quiet.” She then sighed and realized aloud, “Of course, now that I’ve said something, I’ve gone and jinxed myself.”
“You haven’t jinxed anyth

“Confound it Haig, why haven’t we made any progess?!” Being in the office of his superior was a common occurrence for him, but Megelle was feeling particularly impatient given his track record with his target. “The Masters girl has been in Goldenrod long enough, we could have sent operatives…!”
“Jerald?” A confident if oily grin spread across the Rocket executive’s face as he spun his chair about to face his subordinate. “Patience. Plans are already being put in motion to deal with the Masters girl, and I’ve every confidence that they will be successful.” He steepled his fingers together and managed a small chuckle as he added, “And I particularly look forward to having that Murkrow back in our possession.”
The more rotund of the two groaned. “And what, pray tell, is so impressive about that Murkrow? Yes, fine, it can speak, but…” A manila folder wa

Cathcart found himself slumped over his desk, his face against his hands. Arrayed around him were the players from the previous evening, some more aware of the damage from the theft than others.
Being the least aware of the damage, but also aware of the fact that someone had to get the ball rolling, Jake cleared his throat. “So, how do we stand? I mean, last night…”
“Donations totaled over five million.” His arms fell to the desk, and Cathcart’s head followed. “But that’s hollow comfort.”
“What, because the thief got away?” Jake turned to the two Jennies and asked, “Can’t you chase him down?”
“We already have forensics going over the charge machines, and we know how the accounts were hacked and drained.” The Goldenrod Jenny managed a half-hearted smile. “Your friend was right. We found an extra part that scanned and transmitted account n

Like any bustling metropolis, Goldenrod City boasted an active night life, with attractions ranging from the mundane to the fantastic and more than enough to entertain its denizens. Many of its cultured elite, however, found themselves congregating at the Goldenrod Theater, eager to gather and, for one reason or another, support a charitable cause.
“Come in, come in, good evening!” Cathcart enthusiastically greeted the night’s guests, shaking hands with more than a few of them as they entered the building’s foyer. “Thank you so much for coming tonight and for your donations! Rest assured, your funds will go to a wonderful cause!”
The theater lobby was packed with people, many the wealthy elite of Johto with a few odd celebrities of some form or another sprinkled in the mix. Also present were a mix of uniformed and plainclothes officers mingling among the crowd, keeping a watchful eye out for suspicious activity. Man

Nicholas Pendrake had come to know his girlfriend fairly well since they’d first met in Gateon Port in Orre, to the point that many things which would surprise a complete stranger about her didn’t surprise him. Her capacity to go from confident to the point of arrogance to self-doubt, her cunning in battle, her surprising tendency to be girly under the right conditions were all known and accepted. After all, people were not one-dimensional, and Alexandria Masters was no exception.
“Oh, you’re right! These are excellent!”
What shouldn’t have surprised him was that her appetite was genetic.
“Excellent nothing, these are divine! Ignoring the chance to trounce Beverly, these are worth the trip to Goldenrod alone!”
As Alex and her grandmother continued to tear into their cheesesteak sandwiches, the only other male at their table leaned over and whispered, “For the record? She
