Well, that's another console I won't be getting at launch...

Mort Takes A Holiday Rewrite Sneak Peak, Part 2Mort stood frozen to the spot, his head craning up to maintain (reluctant) eye contact with the alicorn. Thanasia towered over him, her ashen body and rigid form almost making her look like a small monument. Even her expression was stone-faced.Mort Takes A Holiday Rewrite Sneak Peak, Part 2 by ~Anonymous-Materials
"T-talk?" he squeaked out, trying to keep his teeth from chattering. "T-talk about what?"
She arched an eyebrow, looking vaguely bemused. "I believe you know. In fact, I know you know."
Mort gulped. The benefits of a mental link meant instantaneous communication, no matter where you were, or how far you were separated. The downside was that you inevitably got peeks into the psyche of the one you were connected to. Well, except for Thanasia, whose mind was more guarded than any safe, prison or moon. Mort imagined his own mind was about as secure as a straw house.
Nonetheless, he felt compelled to put forth a token denial. "W-what's there to t-talk about?" he asked her innocently, trying to sound baffled even as the terror was clear in his

If you were to ask ponies what they thought of Equestria, there would typically be one of three responses.
Most would happily go on about how it's one of, if not the, most beautiful land they've ever laid eyes on.

FiM: Mort Takes a Holiday 9A huge grin appeared on Pinkie Pie's face. "Morty~," she said, in a sing-song voice. It wasn't just her who was looking at him now, it was every pony in the room. Quite a few of them were barely holding back their laughter.FiM: Mort Takes a Holiday 9 by ~Anonymous-Materials
He gulped, trying to back away. "Uh, heh heh, I-I don't know, Pinkie, I've never done this before and there are probably tons of more skilled ponies here, so I'll just"
There was a sudden shove from behind, and he found himself stumbling forward, stopping just a few inches from Pinkie Pie's beaming face. He twisted his head around to see who had done it, but only had time to see Twilight Sparkle's own confused face before he was grabbed by Pinkie Pie.
"Yay!" she said, spinning him around like they were in a dance. "I just knew you couldn't resist! We're going to have so much fun!" She let go of him, and he twirled across the mat until he stopped at a corner. Not coincidentally, he was in the exact spot needed for him to play. Around him, ponies w
