The Secret Song (Twinkie friend/shipping)

Sugarcube Corner was humming when Twilight approached the door, but the moment she entered everything was silent except for the light beat of her hooves on the floor. She stopped, and after a pause the crowd resumed its chatter, louder than before, and Twilight pretended not to hear her name in that chorus as she pulled her wings against her sides. They’d get used to it, she thought. She’d get used to it.

The bakery was full, and Twilight could feel the tips of her feathers brushing against other ponies as she walked to the counter. The rhythm of her hooves on the floor was uneven, still unaccustomed to the extra weight on her sides. But she didn’t need to think about her wings, or the other ponies in the bakery, or anything but the pink pony smiling behind the counter, rushing out the latest batch of tarts for her numerous customers. Just seeing Pinkie was enough to lift her chin and soothe her nerves, and she already knew braving the crowd to come see her was worth it. She could hear Pinkie humming a little tune, and Twilight almost started doing the same without even trying.

When Pinkie noticed Twilight, she turned and smiled even wider, and she wiggled from head to tail as though her whole body joined in on that smile.

"Hey, Twilight!" Pinkie said. "What can I get you?"

"Actually, I just came to see you," Twilight said. She glanced to her sides at the crowded bakery and blushed, wondering how she never questioned the idea of trying to relax with Pinkie on a Sunday morning until then. "But… I guess you’re probably pretty busy."

GWYN AND RAVEN PRINCE AND SWEET ASH AND LIL' SWEET AUGUS WHO HAS NOT YET BEEN BROKEN!!! PIA THIS IS MY FAVORITE RELIEF FIC & THERE'S OODDLES OF GOODIES AND OH MY CHRIST! I AM HAPPY PLZ NEVER STOP UPLOADING

I can’t wait to be able to get back to it! At the moment no more updates are planned on the highschool or feral!Gwyn AU until I actually write more, and I’m not slated to sit down and write more until…mid-November at the earliest (and with edits and so on, it could be late November / December before anyone actually sees anymore of those AUs).

But I’m really glad you’ve been enjoying it! I gotta say, writing a fic where The Raven Prince is still around and will be joining the cast, and where like, Ash and Augus are perfectly fine (except that they’re idiot waterhorses) and so on is so much fun. It’s kinda my relief fic as well. :D

Teen Wolf AU - STEREK - dark!Stiles

Derek is the first to find Stiles after he realizes that all evidence points to him being the nogitsune. Matters, however, quickly get out of hand (and he gets his ass handed to him).


He goes after Stiles without any actual plan, simply hoping that the nogitsune isn’t at its full strength yet after taking control over Stiles and that he can somehow stop it. He expects to find Stiles still himself, still fighting; he doesn’t expect what he finds. It hits him hard, strong, awful stench of anger that is Stiles’, but not exactly. The fight in it is downplayed and it’s not old, like the smell on the roof of the hospital. Now the smell is strong and nauseating and Derek knows that what he will encounter won’t be Stiles. 

Nogitsune seems to be expecting him, because he turns and smiles crookedly.

“I was wondering when one of you puppies is going to show up,” he, or rather it, says, in Stiles’ voice. “It could only take you so long to figure it out.”

“Sorry to disappoint,” Derek says, watching him closely. The line of Stiles’ body is rigid and alien and his eyes are lacking the usual glimmer of warmth in them.

“I feel like I should be the one apologizing. After all, I took your little toy soldier without asking,” The Not-Stiles says and smirks. “But hey, what are you gonna do? Cut your precious boy to pieces?”

Derek says and does nothing, even though it’s an open invitation. He sets out to knock whatever is inside Stiles unconscious.

“Think before you play,” Stiles says and sends him flying as soon as Derek attacks.
