Farewell, 2-D World Chp. 10 Ruth blinked before realizing what Homer had just asked her.
"Plans?" She managed to ask.
"Um, yeah," Homer replied, playing with his pasta, "I was just wondering if you wanted to um...hang out with me this week."
It took Ruth a few moments to sink this all in. Was Homer asking her on a date, or was it merely like hanging out at Moe's?
"Um, no," she said carefully, "I'm not busy."
"So yes?" Homer asked, keeping his hopes up.
"Uh, sure," she replied, "what are you planning?"
"Well..." Homer played with his hands as he tried to think, "watch the new Anne Hathaway movie and maybe get a bite to eat afterwards?"
"Oh, I love Anne Hathaway!" Ruth exclaimed. "That's great!"

Eyes flashing with pure magic, Twilight gazed at Discord as the rainbow of their friendship formed, looking like a powerful storm as it shot up into the sky. Oh, he looked so bored by all of this...Twilight wanted to speak out her annoyance for his failed surprise, but she was sure he would give one as soon as they finished with him.
Finally, the rainbow arched and headed straight at him, and Twilight could finally see a look of shock in his mismatched pupils.
The unicorn smiled. This was just like how they stopped Nightmare Moon before converting her back into Princess Luna. The same rainbow, the same results. All Twilight needed to think of now was how she and her friends were going to speak to Discord once he was weakened. Well, SHE would do the talking; Rainbow Dash just wanted to beat him up.
Finally, the impact of the rainbow nearly ripped Disc
TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 1 Ruth Powers hummed to herself as she scanned through bills she had just recently received in her mail. Her daughter, Laura, had to stay after school to talk to her councillor. Being a teenager, she wanted to plan her future ahead and do some college research and discuss about it with Dr. Pryor.TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 16 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
The phone rang.
Reaching over with one free hand while she held an opened envelope in the other, Ruth placed it on her shoulder and pressed her ear to it.
"Hello?" She asked.
"S'up, Ruth?" Greeted a jolly voice. Ruth could hear noise in the background. "Shut up, you little monsters!"
Ruth blinked as she placed her envelope down and looked at the phone.
"Sorry about that," Homer apologized, "Lisa and the boy were playing some stupid game."
"Um, okay?" Ruth was
TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 5 Lisa, Bart, and Laura came home at their normal times. As they filed off the bus, they ran for the front door to avoid the eyes of Homer and Marge; though it was impossible. They were standing there on the porch, watching. Watching...TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 56 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
It had been only a day since Marge and Homer were released from prison, yet the kids felt as if they had been watching them forever.
The kids could feel the daggers even though they were a fair distance apart. Laura began to shake in fear, trying to avoid Homer's hard glare boring through her although her back was towards him. Bart held Lisa's hand protectively, as if he knew Marge would run at them and grab Lisa by force. Though the kids knew that if they ever did anything to them, the consequences awaiting them would be much worse.
Luckily, Ruth was sitting on the stoop of her home, waiting. She smiled and called to the kids.
TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 7 Ruth rushed across the bench and threw herself at Homer. Homer grabbed a hold of her and the two rumbled out onto the courtroom floor. Homer was grappling her as she clung to him, both of them yelling and bleeding. The courtroom gasped as they watched the violent battle. Marge felt faint, seeing as her hsuband has just made things worse for them.TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 76 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
"Man, we'd usually encourage stuff like this," Lenny said as he watched the fight in concern, "but suddenly, I'm just plain scared!"
"How dare you attack my daughter!" Ruth shouted as she gave Homer a punch in the stomach.
"How dare you waste my time with this crap!" Homer shouted back. "I could be home right now drinking Duff on the couch!"
"Order! Order!" The judge banged his gavel impatiently.
"Kill him, mom!" Bart rooted. "Kill that asshole that threatens to dest
TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 4 The afternoon had come around and Ruth and the kids were in the living room watching television.TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 46 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
Suddenly, there was a knock at the door.
Bart and Lisa huddled close to each other, as Laura looked out the peephole. Ruth approached with an intent stare, and Laura just smiled. "It's Sean."
Opening the door, Sean stepped inside and smiled at Ruth. "I came as soon as I hear... is everyone okay?"
"Oh, Sean," Ruth sighed as she raced into his arms, "it's so good to see you."
"Hey, it's Father Sean!" Bart exclaimed.
"Just Sean now," Sean chuckled.
"What?" Bart asked, confused. "What do you mean?"
Laura giggled at Bart's confused face before looking over at her mother, who smiled.
"Bart," Ruth began

Ruth turned around to find Bart sitting at the table, reading from a few textbooks. She smiled as she walked over to him.
"How's my little genius?" She teasefd before kissing him on the forehead.
"Never better," Bart said, looking up at her, "just want to go advanced on my homework before we actually have to go back to school. That and make for a test I probably failed."
Ruth raised an eyebrow. "What do mean probably?"
Bart sighed. "Mrs. K still hasn't given back my test from last week. She won't tell me what I got, so I figured I've done that bad. And what's really got me concerned is that she won't give me back any homework sh
TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 6 Marge waited outside the courthouse. Today was the day she and Homer would be testified against. She sighed; everyone she knew had began to hate her and her husband because of the previous events. Worse, her own children were going to sue her and that Powers woman was going to take them away from her forever. How she hated Ruth more than ever...TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 66 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
Homer was busy tending his 'business' behind a nearby tree after taking his daily 'beer breakie'. How he managed to remain calm even when he knew their trial was going to be unbearable, she'll never know.
"Marge Simpson..." snapped a voice.
Marge turned around to see Bernice Hibbert, Sarah Wiggum, Luanne Van Houten, and Manjula look at her with glaring eyes.
"Oh, girls!" Marge said, relieved. "Thank God you're here! Ruth's got my children pinning against me and-"
TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 2 The Simpson kids felt as if a great amount of weight was finally lifted off their shoulders as soon as they exited out of their household. Entering inside Ruth's humble home,they felt as if they truly had lived in her house for a long time. They watched as Ruth gently placed Maggie on a nearby couch, atop a pillow.TS: My Mother, My Hero Chp. 26 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
"You guys were seriously in trouble back there," Laura told them.
"We've just gotten so use to it," Lisa sighed, "I never thought mom and dad would actually get what was coming. I mean, they've avoided that matter so many times..."
"And I'll make sure you kids avoid them," Ruth assured them, gently touching Lisa's shoulder, "how about I make us dinner? Spaghetti and meatballs? Completely separated. And caesar salad?"
Lisa's eyes brightened for the first time all night.
"That would be wonderful," Li
Chaotic Order Chapter 6The sound of a rooster crowing startled Ronaldo as his eyes hot open. Gasping from surprise, he rose up from his bed and immediately gazed at his surroundings before realizing where he was.Chaotic Order Chapter 64 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He was in one of the spare rooms the princesses had offered him the night before. Though he had said he didn't want to intrude upon the castle, Luna and Celestia were insistent.
So here he was now in this grand ballroom of a bedroom in a massive bed as big as a football stadium. Everything looked like a storybook to him. And he adored it.
Rubbing his eyes, Ronaldo reached over and grabbed his glasses on a nearby bed table and slipped them on. He gazed outside the large window, amazed by such a beautiful sun that seemed so much closer than it appeared back in Mellowbrook.
Mentally, he thanked Celestia for providing him such a beautiful morning.
"Excuse me?" There was a knock on on door, the sound of one of the palace maids behind it. "Master Ronaldo?"
Master Ronaldo. The blonde boy smiled
Chaotic Order Chapter 4, part 1Ronaldo glanced over to see Ogie smile softly at him as they continued strolling down his neighborhood. Not just them, but the rest of the kids as well as Ronaldo turned and watched Rocky show Kick her Tale of Discord book.Chaotic Order Chapter 4, part 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The lesson about Discord had only been a couple of hours, and Ronaldo felt disheartened it couldn't have been longer. As soon as he entered the home of the kid he knew as Manny Rivera, aka El Tigre, he felt happy being among kids who actually knew how to have fun and relied on each other.
Not that Kendall was lousy at having fun or anything...but Ronaldo knew she wasn't the fun-FUN type no matter how much he insisted it was 'educational'.
"Hey, Ronaldo!" He turned and saw Django strum his bony fingers against his guitar, a playful smirk on his face. "Know this tune?"
"Ronaldo does seem like the Mexican music type," Abjay said, stroking her hair. "No, he seems more of the DJ type. Right?" She gazed directly at him.
"Well, yeah," Ronaldo rubbed the back

"Oh, you're still here?" Bart asked as he came down the stairs.
Ruth looked at him, confused.
Bart blushed. "Dad usually heads to Moe's for his daily 'beer breakie'."
Ruth chuckled. "I stopped going to Moe's a long time ago. The guy keeps complaining about some prankster who keeps calling him."
Bart shrugged nervously.
"I just realized we're already late for school," Bart told her, "even Lisa hadn't notcied until now."
"Bart, you kids have had a rough night," Ruth assured him, "and Laura's still scared to bits. I just called Skinner to keep you guys here for a few days."
Chaotic Order Chapter 8Princess Luna took great notice of Margaret's expression of regret as the red robin fixed the collar of her waitress uniform while Eileen adjusted her side ponytail. While they both were equally loyal to the whole search for Twilight, they knew that couldn't take them away from their jobs at the diner. The moon princess understood them immediately, however, Margaret's guilt never ceased.Chaotic Order Chapter 84 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Dear robin," Luna began as the walked down the long carpet of the throne room. "Whatever is the matter?"
Margaret rubbed her arm, wincing. "Oh, well, it's just..." She sighed. "I feel awful that I'm putting work before friends."
"And Mordecai," Eileen muttered under her breath playfully. She giggled when Margaret threw her a warning glare.
"Please do not be ashamed, Margaret," the moon princess assured her, placing a hoof on her shoulder. "It warms our hearts enough that you had helped us from the beginning and still resume your loyalty."
"But we're going to be gone until early evening!" The red robin
Chaotic Order Chapter 5Spike yawned as he stretched, slowly getting out of his basket before trudging downstairs. When he woke up, Twilight wasn't in her bed, so he assumed she had woken up early to do more studying and research.Chaotic Order Chapter 54 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Afterall, Discord was still on the loose and Twilight was the most determined out of everyone to stop him.
"Twilight?" He called out, rubbing his eyes. He gazed around the library, scratching his head and wondering where the unicorn was. "Hey, I know you're the most important element and all, but you can't work without a little breakfast."
No response from within their home. Spike raised an eyebrow in confusion before turning toward Twilight's desk. Giving another yawn, neared it and noticed a piece of paper lying on top.
"What's this?" He asked himself before reaching over and picking it up.
He was about to read, but suddenly his nose started to itch.
And he let out a sneeze, which released a massive amount fire...which burned a large portion of the message in his hand.
