    Operation: Crossover- Chapter 1

    "And then, Scootaloo fell facefirst into a great batch of salad!!" Pinke Pie was saying in her usually energetic manner. "Pinkie, not that we don't find the story funny, but this is the seventh time you've told it to us." Said Twilight Sparkle in a bored tone. "Seventh time today!" Rarity Gem corrected. "I'm sorry! It's just-hahaha-soooooo funny! I can't help but retell it!" Pinkie Pie fell to the ground, shaking with mirth.<p>The six friends were over at Applejack's place. The only other person home was Applejack's slightly loopy old grandma, Granny Smith. She was in the living room, talking to some unseen apperation, probably of her own design. "Uh-huh. Yep. I'll send the right over!!"<p>"Ugh! I'm so bored, I can't even think!" Rainbow Dash exclaimed. It was a frigid day out in Ponyville, and the ground was generously coated with ice, making travel conditions terrible. Even worse, the low temperature would cause the Pegasi's wings to freeze up, even at low altitudes. So, no-one wanted to go outside. Instead, they contented themselves by warming up in Applejack's kitchen, next to the steam boiler.<p>"Oh girls!" Called Granny Smith from the living room. "I know something fun for y'all to do!" Applejack huffed. "Granny, if it's to sweep the kitchen again, we did that already. Twice." Granny Smith's voice floated from the cupboard under the stairs. "Nope! Even better! Y'all come here, and I'll give you a suprise!"<p>Spike (Who had tagged along as well) shrugged. "Maybe it will be electric blankets or something." Applejack snorted. "No way! My granny probably dosen't even know what excitement is. Nontheless electricity." All the same, the ponies (and dragon) made their way into the cupboard under the stairs.<p>It was rather large, for a cupboard. It was mostly bare, and had enough room for all the ponies, plus Granny Smith to stand. But not Spike. "Here Spike." Offered Twilight. "You can stay in my book bag for now." Spike's eyes grew big. "But who knows what's been in there??" But he hopped into the roomy bag.<p>Granny Smith smiled. "Good girls. Now just stay right there." She shut the door. And then, to everyone in the cupboard's horror, they heard the lock click shut.<p>"Applejack! I think your grandma just shut us in here!!" Gasped Fluttershy. "Maybe she's a crazy, nutty serial killer, who starves her victims in cupboards!!!" Rainbow Dash suggested unhelpfully. Before Applejack could explain to Rainbow dash that her granny was not a homicidal maniac, a hydraulic hiss sounded in the cupboard, and the floor fell away beneath them!!!<p>((Better? Don't forget to comment!!!))

    I Also Recommend:

    An entertaining collection of stories from the Star Wars Universe

    There is an interesting idea behind all of these stories. Every story is about a character that you would catch a glimpse of in the first Star Wars movie's cantina scene. At some point, the main character will find themselves in the cantina at the exact moment Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi walk in the door for the first time.
    The collection of stories as a whole were good, but "Nightlily" by Barbara Hambly was the best. It was absolutely hilarious. "Hammertong" by Timothy Zahn ranks a close second.

    Good stuff, man.

    Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina is a highly entertaining book, as is the case with the other Star Wars 'tales' books. I have to say Davin Felth's tale was my personal favorite, and most of the others were very well done also. However, a few of the stories were just a little too dull to make the book perfect. Overall: an excellent book.
