Hivemind: Chapter 2
To Spike, the past two days were a blur. He had eaten far too many sweets at the reception, confident that any consequences would be Future Spike's problem. Unfortunately, the next morning's sugar-induced migraine reminded him that Future Spike's problems had a nasty habit of becoming his problems. Fortunately, after a day of much needed rest, the buzzing in his head had more or less disappeared, and he and Twilight were on their way back to Ponyville.
"That was some wedding, huh Twilight?"
The unicorn across from him didn't bother to look away from the passing scenery outside the train window to reply.
"It sure was."
The two of them had the car to themselves, since Twilight had stayed a day later than her friends so she could look after Spike while he recovered (for which the baby dragon was grateful). Even so, they had barely exchanged a word since the wedding.
"Are you okay?" Spike asked, frowning. "You've been awfully quiet lately."
"Sorry, Spike," Twilight said, turning t

The quill glided across the crisp parchment, leaving a bold line of ink in its wake. Under Twilight Sparkle's magical direction, more lines crisscrossed the parchment, dividing it into neat little boxes. Soon these boxes were filled in with cramped writing, and the rows and columns were labelled with dates and times. Twilight paused to survey her work.

It had happened again: a sharp pain in her eye, followed by a flash of green light that left her blinded for a few moments. Such occurrences had been bothering her off and on ever since returning from the wedding yesterday. At first, she had written them off as the result of being overworked with
Hivemind: Chapter 1
Twilight's schedule was a thing of beauty. Parchment covered in pristine rows labelled with dates and columns headed by times accurate to the nearest 15 minutes, precisely splitting the sheet into rectangular boxes with the month's appointed activities written neatly inside: truly, this was a work of art. Not a minute was left unfilled; not an inch of space was wasted. "And I even remembered to schedule time to put together next month's schedule this time!" Twilight announced proudly to the empty library. "Twilight Sparkle, you really have outdone yourself. Now just a few more finishing touches." She bent over the schedule, squinting, carefully hovering a quill just above its surface. This task required the utmost concentration. The tip of the quill touched the parchment.
"Gaaah!" She accidentally flung the quill up and out of sight behind her as she winced and put a hoof to her smarting eye. It had happened again: a sharp pain in her right eye, followed by a flash of green light that
