AKA "Background Pony Edition"
Clop story, drama, adventure... if you've been here before, you know how it goes. If not, this is a former smut one-shot that took on a life of its down, due to the writer's autism and apparent lack of self-control.
When we last left Anon, the voice had assumed control over his body, breaking him out of prison, but also getting him into the fight of his life against Princesses Cadance and Twilight. Which he lost. Hard.
Now, Anon's badly injured and back in control of himself, though the voice still remains in his head. How's our hero gonna get out of this one? Read on to find out...

What you see here began as a series of comedy-centric stories with the concept of an alicorn-ascended Princess Applejack trying to change a mismanaged Equestria for the better by humorously interacting with the other, quite lazy princesses. Not to mention a whole bunch of Changelings with nothing better to do but cause mischief.
Over time and with the involvement of countless writefriends and artbuddies, it has grown into something much greater. One of the longest running conjoinedly written AU stories in thread form.
The whole thing was set into motion with this little gem:
>So, wait, why am Ah' a princess again?
>Because you seem to be the only goddamn one of those ponies who gets that a Princess need to do actual work regarding maintenance of the kingdom. You know how much city planning or trade negotiations Twilight or Luna have done? Fucking nothing. Everyone is obsessed with the world ending threats they think I should fight, but the minute I point out the free health care I have to work to maintain everyone goes quiet. And don't even get me started on Cadence, who can't even manage a basic meeting with the Equestrian Games representative. Fucking annoying. Go do actual princess stuff, because apparently everyone else got the pamphlets mixed up or something and thinks "Princess" means "Beat cop."
Feeling creative? Try your hand at writing a story! No contribution is too small and we love having new folks around.
If you're more artistically inclined, give a drawing or sketch a shot. Doesn't have to be fancy, so don't fret too much about giving it a shot.
If that's not your style, writers always like getting feedback, so tell us what you liked - and what you didn't - to help us improve.
If you are unsure about what's going on, do not be afraid to ask who a character is or what's happened lately. There's a lot of stuff happening at once sometimes, but we will gladly bring you up-to-date or explain anything you feel is unclear.
