It’s exceedingly difficult to watch those that we love and hold dear slowly deteriorate and slip away from us. One day they’re standing there next to us, smiling and laughing as though nothing in this world could drag them down and bury them alive, but time runs out for every individual, and when the clock strikes 13 and the skeletal hands of death gently clamp around their heart and mouth, they slowly stop breathing and sink into the mud at their feet.
Those that are lucky wander off in tow of the Grimm Reaper without realizing where it is that they’re going, leaving behind their physical bodies as they sleep, eventually grasping the fact that morning isn’t going to come.
The majority of us are less fortunate, dying in some painful way that bitter rivals likely wouldn’t wish upon one another. We see our lives flash before our eyes before the moment of impact or witness the fear that consumes the faces of our family members as we fall the the grou

“No.” You say sternly, looking at the muddy faces of a three-year-old little girl and five-year-old boy. “Awww!” They say together. “Please Riley?” The little girl says, holding up the puppy she’s carrying to your face. You’re sitting slumped against a tree, the two kids confronting you had found a stray pup in the woods where you were sheltering, and were begging to keep it. “When she grows up she can help us hunt for food!” Joshua says, “and protect the camp, and-” “Alright, alright.” You say, waving your hands. You can’t say no to reason, nor deny those three pairs of puppy-dog eyes any longer. “Go talk to your grandma and see if she agrees.” You watch them run across the leaf-covered forest floor to their grandmother, who’s resting against a tree, and think about how you got here.
So much for returning to normal. It’s been two months sin

A woman is jogging down the street with a black lab. You smile pleasantly at her and continue down the road. The woman stops jogging and shouts a warning to you. You can’t hear that well because of the traffic. You ask her to repeat it, and after listening again, you realize that it’s not warning in her voice, but condolence. It’s still hard to discern, but you hear enough to gather: “You’re that kid from the news! I’m so sorry for what happened!”
Apparently our local news station actually is watched. You keep walking -not wanting to be noticed- pulling up your hoodie over your short dark hair. You don’t want attention, you just want to move on with your life. Although, you were certain it wouldn’t be the last time you would be stopped on the road. When you were in a diner earlier, and they played the story on TV, you had to hurriedly pay and run out before anyone could notice. You were the local ‘hero’,
The Streets- Chapter 13: Plucked StringsA reassuring buzz came from the guitar as I plugged it into one of the any amplifiers and I tested the strings: perfect... I glanced around the room. At the three other people; James, who gave me a friendly thumbs-up, and two technicians. They were all waiting expectantly for what was in store for them. Taking a deep breath, I held my fingers to the guitar neck, readied my voice, and began to play.The Streets- Chapter 13: Plucked Strings2 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
As I finished my second song, James burst into my half of the soundproof room and patted me firmly on the back. 'That's my boy!'
I grinned sheepishly, still clutching my beloved guitar in my calloused hands. The thick door was still open and I noticed the technicians applauding admiringly. I bowed jokingly, attempting to hide my obvious smile. Both technicians walked in, and one shook my hand vigorously.
'Alright! Hello Mr. White! My name is Michael and as you can probably tell, I am one of the technicians here at Black Raven Records! And this is my partner in all-things-technical, Liam.'

She couldn't see anything. There was something soft and warm beneath her cheek, but she couldn't move her arms to tell what it was.
"Wake the fuck up!" It was Miranda, obviously in distress. Memories flooded back to her.
"Where are we?"
"I have no goddamn idea," she snarled.
"Be quiet," another voice Alexis didn't recognize barked from the darkness beyond the blindfold.
"I just wanted to make sure she was alright," Miranda snapped back.
"And she is. So shut up or I'll gag you again."
Lex's head was pounding and her cheek stung from the repeated blows she had taken while resisting these peoples' attempts to restrain her. She could tell that Miranda was holding her head in her lap, and that they were both sitting on a cold, concrete floor. The air smelled pretty bad, ripe with sweat and piss. She guessed that they were all being held together, in a small room somewhere, for all the good that understanding would do her. Straining her
Chapter Five: PurityZoey's first instinct when seeing the two dozen men and women, all obviously itching for a fight, charging towards her was to run. She forgot what she had become, forgotten that she was surrounded by similiarly affected women. Fear flooded through her and, in a panic, she cast her gaze about the room for an exit. It was immediately clear that the only one was behind the mob. The only escape was through them.Chapter Five: Purity3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Zoey!" she heard Lex calling, and for a moment didn't understand the words that followed.
All around her, these misfortuned women, most of whom had no more strength or protection than they had as humans, were being assaulted. Right in front of her, Alexis was struggling to keep a pair of them away from herself and Miranda, waving her chair in front of her futilely and shouting for help.
Zoey clenched her fists and remembered. She didn't need to be afraid of these people.
She had never struck anyone in her life. She had always avoided confr
Chapter Four: TherapyThere was one part of her transformation that didn't bother Miranda - her wings were very useful to hide behind. Even here, surrounded by people in the exact same situation she was in, she felt exposed and only protected by the thin membrane stretched between the preposterously elongated claws that used to be her fingers. Sure, they could see her snout, her fur, and the hooves that announced her presence everywhere she walked with a heavy tap, but at least her stubby tail, bloated thighs, and her twin pairs of double d's were concealed. It helped that Alexis hadn't left her side since... well since her lover had convinced her in this folly. But then it was also incredibly irksome that the one of them who would embrace this kind of change was back to normal, while Miranda, who was never one to flaunt her uniqueness, was stuck like this.Chapter Four: Therapy3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

By now, all of the Earth cats had fled our camp, leaving the dead and dying scattered everywhere. “Skaiya!” “Oh no...” Cloud and Maisie dashed over, both covered in blood. I sobbed, collapsing onto her body. “Wake up...” I whispered. I knew it wasn’t going to work. I knew I was being kittish. But a tiny part of me held onto the hope that she was just unconscious, that this was all a horrible prank, that I was dreaming...

It had only been a few days since Morgana was defeated and a sense of relief had come over the kingdom. Ariel could only think of the future of her kingdom, her family and what was to come.

"Thanking Twilight Sparkle"
In the days that followed since the energetic and inviting performance in Canterlot, Octavia had become a much differently viewed pony to the citizens than what she was used to being viewed as. While some Canterlot ponies had turned their backs on Octavia, others like the Princesses and especially Twilight and her friends, stayed by her side.
Now, with her newfound fame and respect, Octavia now had a choice to make. She needed to decide whether to remain in her old home in Canterlot or permanently move in with Vinyl Scratch.
"I want you to know something Octavia," said her father as Octavia ate breakfast with her parents one morning. "We know now that you want to move to Ponyville and be with that pony with the headphones. No matter what decision you will make, your mother and I will support it."
"That's very nice of both of you," replied Octavia, taking a sip of tea. "I'm lucky to have two wonderful ponies as my parents."
Both her parents smiled

Little did they know that Octavia was going to be out of character, thanks to her friend Rarity and her biggest music fan, Twilight Sparkle. All of the ponies were in their freshly repaired gala dresses and sitting in a balcony on the right side of the theater.
"I sure hope Octavia doesn't have any last minute jitters," said Rarity, checking to make sure her opera glasses were working. "We certainly wouldn't want anypony wondering where the main attraction is."
"Well, I certainly hope so, too," added Fluttershy. "I know how hard it is to face a crowd of ponies."
"That's because you have never performed in front of ponies before, silly," laughed Pinkie Pie, making Fluttershy nervous. This remark caused Pinkie to get a glare from Rarity and cause Pinkie to back away to her sea

"Octavia Meets Her Parents"
The night before Octavia's recital in Canterlot, Twilight and Rarity along with Vinyl Scratch took the first train back to Equestria's capitol. All of them knew that if Octavia was going to give her best performance, she needed to face her parents to tell them face to face about what they thought of her.
"You have to do this, Octavia," insisted Rarity as they walked up to the front door. "It's the only way you can get your anxieties out of you, darling."
"That's what you think, Rarity," grunted Octavia. "They will just say I am an embarrassment to them."
Just as they walked up to the door, however, Twilight began to take notice of several ponies that were gathered outside of the gates. Knowing that they would be coming for her, she decided to let Rarity and Vinyl handle the situation with Octavia.
"I hope you can deal with them fluently," said Rarity. "They have been a bit of a bother since we came here a few days ago."
