    Summary

    When a barrier between two worlds breaks, it provides an ample opportunity for two separated cultures to interact for the first time in ages. However, a band of ponies and gryphons on one of these two worlds come upon a spoken legend that foretells the end times that follow the barrier's destruction—whispers of aggravatingly vague omens to come. In addition to this, said group find six mares and a small drake from the sister world, each as perplexed as ever as to why the barrier broke.

    Yet none know how fast the clock ticks, nor of the forces at work in the shadows. Should they fail to stop whoever or whatever is behind the mess, a fated tragedy will strike—with all being plunged into their final, and darkest hour. But how will the differing groups stop the impending calamity, when they have but one meager piece of a proverbial puzzle, and such vast worldviews that are radical enough to spark fights between them?

    Summary

    “This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a whimper." (T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land)

    The Inquisition was gathering momentum -- until something went terribly wrong with closing the Breach. The Inquisitor is dead -- or perhaps worse. The Veil is in tatters, the laws of magic are upended, and Corypheus stands unopposed. The survivors must band together to try to save the world -- if it can be saved at all.

    A "Game Over" thought experiment in trying to imagine the story if the Inquisitor failed. Sprawling, multiple POV AU that tracks what happens to the world through the eyes of both in-game and original characters. Irregular updates; flash fiction; not beta-read; excuse the mess. Occasional accompanying Tumblr randomness to be found here: https://aethernitri.tumblr.com

    Summary

    The Blight had killed everything. At least, everything that mattered. When the crops failed, the serfs panicked and fled to Levacaloo, hoping they could find safety and solace with their kin. They would find no such thing; in the end, many volunteered their lives and flesh to keep society alive.

    As it remained for generations. However, over the years, the Civilized chose of their numbers less and less, and of the commoners more and more. Soon, it became apparent that a revolution would flare to life and boil over. All it took was dwindling crops and Swine, and the final nail in the coffin was the Harvest of Arroyo Bellafide's son.

    Now the Commonfolk vagrants and the aristocratic Longcoats have struck an alliance, led by Hopper and Arroyo Bellafide, respectively. Now the KSR and the Civilized stand against them to keep the status quo, headed by the shady Quartermaster and the High Missionary Archimedes.

    But in the shadows, something lurks, unseen and uncaring. For now, they watch. But when they strike, their might will fall from heaven like a righteous hammer.

    Summary

    History has proven how far Inquisitions go, the depths they are willing to sink, and the sins they commit all for the "greater good." Imprisoning, interrogating, and torturing heretics under suspicion of being a spy is something all Inquisitions have in common. Exhausted for all they could acquire from her, they left her - forgot her. Buried with Haven, only compassion would save her.

    Summary

    Flying over a moonlit plain one night, a young military-trained, conscripted pegasus named Sora finds herself tangling with a grounded adversary—one who, admittedly, is a little bit on the deranged side of the fence. Having attracted strange cloaked ponies that seemingly want said adversary dead, Sora decides to act and takes her foe to be detained for her crimes, taking into account her worse-for-wear state.

    Yet with disapproval from a whole army's worth of ponies in uniform, especially those few in a high position of power who order her around, Sora stubbornly clings to her decision, and it's one that would be ill-advised in most other circumstances. This is something that she does not know could spark either an event as harmless as a dischargement... or lead to less than favorable consequences. Whatever the result, she'll have to make do, as will her adversary and anypony else who decides to get involved with them.

    But there is a wise saying of ages long lost, one Sora follows to the letter—it is short, simple, and much to her chagrin, the particular predicament she's wound up in. As a wise soul once said, all those countless ages ago: "keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."
