Early in EquestriaMUCK, several of us gathered one Wednesday for storytell! Was five-word format--each player only tell five words. Was silly storyy!! Was going to post, but then forgot. But then remember!! Log given below with slight abridge, and then stories in completion post after. (n.n)
(&)=(&)=(&)=(&)=(&)=(&) =+= CANTERLOT =+= (&)=(&)=(&)=(&)=(&)=(&) Canterlot, the capital of Equestria, is an aloof city built into the side of Canterlot Mountain. Its towers and spire soar majestically forth,defying gravity and expectations, the royal palace of the princesses foremost among its buildings. Up close, Canterlot is a place filled with clean, broad plazas, beautiful terraces, and shiny, bright stone buildings. The city is very old, but has a constantly refreshed air of newness. Perhaps this is because of the pride of its citizens, who think of themselves as being at the intellectual and historical center of their country. Perhaps it's also because those citizens are predominantly unicorns, andt heir magical talent is good for not just changing the seasons, but keeping their city clean. For whatever reason, the commerical district of Canterlot is filled with fascinating shops selling curios, inventions, magic items, spell scrolls, glassware, books, fine art, and quality hardware. It's a city of proud, intelligent ponies thrilled to be living so close to their benevolent ruler, Princess Celestia.

STORY FIRST When foxes decide to have snacks made with bad cheese... they have to buy toast. It's always sure to please! Although, delinquent dairy can often cause unaccustomed vulpines to feel like they would never squander a chance to square dance. Their hearts would never wander, neither here nor to yonder, unless they chose to ponder if they ate a gander... the memory would be fonder. Remember Achilles! And also Lysander! They would never eat a whole tub of strawberry jelly with strange ponies in it. That would just be silly. Just the same, when given food of otherwise indiscernible quality, they trade for cheap sherbet. Now, the open market value of such succulent sweets can fluctuate according with world supply.
Next story will make sense. But less than you'd expect. Final exam will be Thursday! BAD END. BAD END IS GOOD END."
STORY SECOND "I wish I could fly," said the little warthog sadly. "But I do not have wings." So she went to see if the bathroom was open so that she could try to make it smell like forest fresh, pine scented springtime. Sadly she had to poop... so she did that first. After the bathroom exploded, she rebuilt it ENTIRELY POOP FREE. But the smell still lingered! "If only I had wings," said the little warthog sadly. POOP END. -30/100 points. Mazeltov!
STORY THIRD Rarity's day began with tubas. Of course, most days did. Pinkie was practicing loudly again. As she's apt to do. And Rarity had had enough. So she marched briskly outside. Pinkie had an orchestra, AGAIN. Rarity yelled: "KNOCK IT OFF!" Pinkie giggled. "But why? I don't even know how to..." "Zip it, Darling,' Rarity interrupted. I need my beauty sleep! You are just too loud!" Pinkie then turned into Pinkamena. The very idea of her telling me what to do! Rarity had read this story! She started to play louder! And then the tuba exploded. Rarity'd learned a new spell. No tuba would be safe! You liked to play? TUBAD. So she cast Magic Missle! That's how Canterlot was made. Made Pinkie-proof, that is! So Pinkie switched to accordions! ACCORDI END.
STORY FINAL The hardest thing about being an adorable little dragon is: You start fires when snoring. Twilight had helpfully created a dampening mesh for Spike to place atop his face when company visited. Like a muzzle. "This is another fine mesh you've gotten me into, by adding a padded helmet. Their guests still caught fire. By this time, neither of the Princesses had particularly noticed, though teleported furniture puzzled Celestia. Perhaps it was a message? So Celestia decided to visit her inflamed sister Luna, who sent Spike to the mooooon! With no air, fire was not a concern. However, Spike was unable to fight off asphyxiation. Dragons need air too. Fortunately Luna was visting, so she revived Spike and created a lunar theme park for ceramic cats and dolphin rides! LUNAR ENDS!
