''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/116782/zenith Zenith]]'' is a MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic written by The Descendant.

Once upon a time, Spike went for a walk.

While on his walk, he was judged by an ancient alicorn, lodged with griffons, parlayed with air pirates, charmed a maiden of a mystical race, and dealt with the scourges of hate, fear, and racism while deliberately drawing the armies of myriad nations to the brink of global war.

Once upon a time, Spike went for a walk, and did all of this so that he could keep a promise to the one that meant the most to him... Twilight Sparkle.

Not to be confused with the [[{{ComicBook/Zenith}} comic book]] of the same name.
