Witch Trial Story
Based On A True Story Long Ago
"Do you know why you are here, Lady Labatryth Konaldyvir De Moor of Lyndynhyra, or should I say…WITCH?”
I looked down at my dirt-caked hands and trembled, breaths stuttering and labored at the stinging lacerations in my palms.
“B-Because…I have employed the powers and gifts given to me by the same Almighty God of which you now intend to condemn me?”
No sooner had these words left my mouth than I was pulled forward by some vague force, my ears ringing at the crack of what must have been a whip, but what too-soon materialized as the strike of a hand against my own tender cheek, and suddenly while my face now ached with the same horrible fiery burn so often accompanying barbaric violence I met the glowing outlines of the cold and wet cobblestones of the street. How they glistened in the moonlight, almost as if each one of them now bled…mourned for the pain and unimaginable suffering so su

The light cleared and everypony suddenly found themselves standing in front of the gem-encrusted door. "Wh-what just happened?" Rarity exclaimed.
"It must have been a magical illusion," Twilight said. "Like Sombra's door in the Crystal Empire, but more benign."
The multicolored gems in the door were now glowing brightly. "Guess that means we passed the trials," Flash said, still panting slightly.
"Now what about the last one?" Twilight said.
The white gem in the center of the door began to shine faintly, revealing words carved into it. "'The mother of all things, faith and hope and charity. No use to one, but it makes two into one,'" Daring read out loud. "It's a riddle. I hate riddles."
"Faith and hope and charity," Twilight murmured. "Makes many things into one..."
Enlightenment shone in Flash's eyes. "Isn't it obvious?" he said. "It's love."
Everypony looked at him as Flash turned to Twilight. The two ponies locked their gazes, and for them, that moment felt like hol
Wonderland Have you ever wondered what happened to wonderland after Alice left? Do you wonder how it got there in the first place? Or even how the man who wrote to story knew so much about it? Ah you might say, ‘Well because it was his idea, he made it all up!’ My dear child, he was only the first to write about it, not the first to enter it, however, the Alice he wrote about was indeed the first. He learned the story from up, the ‘characters’ you learned to love through that book, but also to fear. How do I know this? You’ll just have to find out.Wonderland1 day ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
I guess I should start with explaining a little before we jump in the main story. The first Alice started our entire history; she shaped our story and what we would do through generations. Once she left we wondered why she had showed up, what purpose did she serve? We told her story in awe and wonder, would this happen again?

Within this world, there are many types of people. There are those who dwell on the eastern coasts, where industry booms and technology to control and harness the flow of magical energy develops rapidly under enterprisers’ hungry gazes. There are those in the mountains, notorious for their bonds with the dragons and their legacy as tamers. In the north resides the harsh arctic tundra, where steel-clad beasts that spit ice terrorize locals, and fauns banished from contact with humans have adapted to a harsher climate than their once spring-like home. In the far south, sandy deserts are separated from the rest of the world by a landscape of scorching red rocks, and the nomadic peoples of the region have long since been separated from the rest of their species.
And in the woodlands resides the barbaric tribes of the west. Viewed as wild, dangerous, and uncivilized by most, the barbarian clans of the woodlands are known for their close relatio
A Guide to Wind ElementalsWind ElementalA Guide to Wind Elementals1 day ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Wind elementals have been a leading cause of mayhem for as long as there have been wind elementals. However, up until recently, they were somewhat rare, due to the scarcity of their primary food source and preferred nest-making material. Wind elementals use light, fluffy materials to make their nests - dust especially - and feed on electricity. Therefore, aging computers have become a prime target for wind elemental infestations.
Being a member of the Umbrabilis domain, wind elementals have no observable form. When viewed through an Astral Imaging Device, they can be seen as a vortex of energy, with the adult form reaching the size of a basketball. Further analysis has revealed that despite their chaotic nature, wind elementals are, in fact, quite stable in form. Beyond discharging bursts of electricity proportionate to their size, the only power a wind elemental possesses is shaping the wind in and around it into various forms. If a large
