Six years ago, an unimaginable horror known as Tirek came to Equestria. His power was nigh impossible, requiring the Elements, the Lovers and the Alicorns all to pour their very souls into holding him. In their absence, Prince Blueblood took the crown. But, Blueblood's reign is simply a mask for the Guard's dictatorship, while rebels cling to the idea of a free republic and strange cults tout the value of freedom from any governance. With all this, why would anypony spare a thought for the comet that filled the night sky for weeks before falling?

Okay, let's get a few things clear. One, Daring Do is a real pony who basically novelized her adventures, a la Across Mongolian Plains. As such, her adventures are all true stories, and she is completely capable of doing it again, and it's plot-mandated that the recipient of her account goes on at least one adventure. The reasoning behind this will be explained to the recipient.
Same structure as ever, three applications and then three days for anyone else to apply. Three days go by without an app, and one of the existing ones will be chosen.
Two days had passed since Wishing Star had died, and Snowbird still wasn't taking it well. She was on her third hour sitting at the bar, desperately drinking her sorrows away and wondering if she was ever actually going to get drunk. The four empty bottles on the counter were suggesting 'no.'
"Dammit Starry, you don't get to die on me like this..."
Merry Christmas Happy Hearth's Warming, everypony! Santa Hooves has brought presents for the ponies of Gaia, and now you get to unwrap them! Post here as soon as you can, and I'll give you something special out of Santa's bag!
All right, colts and fillies, here's how this works. We have a pre-made advertisement already, but we need to let people see it. That's where you guys come in! There are two kinds of advertisements: Links and Affiliations. Links are just posts on another site containing our advertisement so that people can see it and look us up. Affiliations are a bit more complicated, and generally involve getting admins to talk to each other. This is where two sites become partners and put prominent links to the other's site on the main page of their site, like we have underneath the news crawler.
If a mod/admin receives complaints about the posting of our advertisement by one of our members, that member will not receive any reward; we're trying to make a good impression here. Also, pony sites are encouraged, but if you decide to link us somewhere else you'll get a prize just the same. Now, the prizes!
You might have noticed that we have a series of random bags in our mall, and that's what we'll use for prizes. For each link you post (and then PM to an admin for verification) you'll receive a free item, chosen at random. For each affiliation, you receive five free items, also chosen at random.
As the night waned on, another light filled the skies above Appleoosa and Dodge Junction, flying across the heavens and crashing into a remote part of the San Palomino Desert. This one went mostly unnoticed by the population of the two cities, and as such it was going to be a long, hard trek for anyone to find the stone, should they want to. However, in a stroke of luck, this one had remained safely out of notice, meaning that everyone had equal opportunity to try and take posession of it.
