EHL Part XVI - Semis Game 1
Equestria Hockey League Part XVI Semifinals: Game 1
Ponyville Pond was alive with lights and echoing sounds. The Ponyville Golden Leafs, fresh off their quarterfinals series victory over the Manehattan Rangers, were hard at work preparing for their next opponent, the Cloudsdale Red Wings. The pounding of the puck on the boards reverberated to the rafters as a faint smell of sweat dissipated into the cold air. Once the Leafs' general practice routine was finished, Twilight rounded up the team to go over strategy.
"Alright team, when we face Cloudsdale, we have a very big task in front of us. Spitfire is the best scorer in the EHL and she's super fast. We're going to pay special attention to her in order to stop her from single-handedly beating us. I want us to double team her to ensure we always have somepony pressuring her. To practice this task, we're all going to chase Rainbow in pairs. Rarity and Applejack will go first, then Fluttershy and I, then Bi

Chapter 2 Terminal Velocity
The big day arrived for Twilight and her friends, the day that they venture off to Las Neighgas. Eager to get going, Twilight grabbed her suitcase and started trotting off to the airport five hours early. Using her magic, Twilight floated her book, An Egghead's Guide to Card Counting, in front of her while pulling her wheeled luggage along. Unaware of her surroundings with her face in the book, Twilight trotted right past the security gate to the tarmac. Security ponies yelled for her to halt but Twilight kept rolling. Finally, it was the screech of a plane landing overhead that jolted Twilight out of her scholarly shroud. Several security unicorns quickly surrounded her with horns aglow. Twilight dropped the book and put her hooves up in innocence.
"I'm so sorry! I wasn't paying attention to where I was going!! Please believe me!"
The head security unicorn stepped forward and motioned to his cr

Chapter 1 A Nice Little Surprise
"Did it come yet? Did it? Did it did it did it?" asked Twilight Sparkle excitedly as she shook Spike, her dragon friend and assistant.
Spike grabbed the sides of his head to stop his eyes from spinning. "Calm down, Twilight. What are you're waiting for anyways?"
"A letter from the princess of course! Her last letter said that she was going to give me a new assignment! I've tried waiting patiently but I just can't." Twilight pulled out a notebook and a calculator and went to work. "See, I've been waiting exactly 691,200 seconds since the last scroll. Oh, now 691,201 691,202 691,203 "
Spike stuck out his hand to try to count out how many hours that would be, but quickly gave up. "Sorry Twilight, I haven't felt anything yet."
Twilight turned off her horn and looked to the floor in disappointment, dropping the hovering notebook and calculator. As Spike turned away to leave, his stomach
EHL Part XV - Qtrs: Game 3
Equestria Hockey League Part XV Quarterfinals: Game 3
On the eve of the most important game of their young careers, Twilight Sparkle and the Ponyville Golden Leafs were putting the finishing touches on what could potentially be their last practice. The main objective was to pound the Rangers with physicality and to stifle them with tight defense. Toward the end of practice, Rarity began to feel a throbbing pain in her hooves. She skated off to the side boards and plopped herself down to take her front skates off. Concerned, Twilight rushed over to see what was wrong.
"What's wrong, Rarity? Are you hurt?"
"Oh Twilight, I shouldn't have done it. I thought I was going to be okay! I had no idea it would come back to haunt me so!"
Twilight was greatly confused. "Just what are you talking about?"
"Well I received an extremely important order for twenty hockey jersey dresses. I would have declined but the money was just too good to turn down. The dresses were v

"Come onnnn! Where is it? I scheduled us to leave at four! It's already going on five!" shouted an exasperated Twilight Sparkle. In front of their mountain of hockey bags, the Ponyville Golden Leafs stood waiting for their carriage to Manehattan. Twilight nervously paced about while each of her friends followed her with their eyes.
"Don't pace yourself too hard, dear. You don't want to get tired before the game, do you? Come stand here and relax," said Rarity as she shooed away Applejack to make room.
Applejack shot Rarity a quick, stern look before moving over. "Rarity's right, Twi. We need to conserve all the energy we can if we wanna be sharp for tonight. Energy savin' is mighty important, ain't it big brother?"
"Eeyup. That's the truth alright."
Twilight stopped her pacing but instead directed her nervousness into rapidly tapping her hoof. "But if we're late for the game, they might ma
