I remember the day I walked into Madison..I'd never been more afraid of anything in my life. The small, scared 6th grade girl. With out a single friend. I didn't want to be alone.
I would talk to those I already knew, but nothing really stuck. They all were changing..Too fast for my liking. And just like that..I wasn't alone. Not anymore. I wasn't going to be. Ever again.
I remember her face, the curly brown hair. Eyes full of hate..But none towards me. That 7th grade girl that let her world meet mine. I have all my thanks for this girl..Its because of her, I'm not alone.
I remember that short boy, with long messy brown hair. He was so...So... Unlike I'd ever seen. He didn't talk really. And, I had no idea how big of a part he'd be in my- Our lives.
I remember that hate I felt for that tall tan boy, with long hair. I had no idea how close we'd become. None what so ever. I walked towards him, and spoke. Acted as if he wasn't a stranger.
All those hateful words...They seem

I'd never have... or, nobody would have ever known that, despite me living my normal everyday life as a 15 year old boy, going to school, being with my friends, all that normal stuff; that things were stirring. Events stirring that would change my life my whole world for the undecidedly better or worse.
I'd never have known this fate that lay for me, and I still cannot say whether I'm exactly happy with it. But I cannot go back. This is me, my new world, who I am, forever.
I am Christopher... and this is my story.
It was a school night, same as every other night past & future; my parents nudging me to hurry up with last-minute work I needed to do, and then asleep by 10:30. Nothing out of the ordinary, though I didn't mind as I had grown accustomed to this.
While I lay that night, it was a long, dark, dreamless sleep. The kind you get when you can't quite sleep, but are.
It felt like... by the time I woke up the next morning, everything would be gone... eve

By Your Side, Forever and Ever
Greed now rules the spoils of war.
Queen has set her throne on the royal hall (the ruins of the realm)
I have walked through the dark
I have fought my way out of her prison.
I have witnessed the war
I have found my love wrapped in oblivion.
The eldritch swarm over our world,
My shining one, where have you gone?
Devourer's claws hold on your heart,
My shining love, where are you lost?
Broken harmony, its protectors fell
Imprisoned their kin, in repressed tears (the realm of peace)
From beasts he swore to shield his home,
My shining one, the guardian.
Wake from the queen's dormant veil,
Within your heart resides our hope.
In despair we need your gallant strength,
My shining one, reclaim your shield.
I'll support your task,

The explosion booming from behind was unlike anything that had ever been heard before. All 7 latis were forced to tightly cover their ears for dear life from the tremendous bang. Shortly after, a merciless shockwave came reeling in, rocketing the latis forward."shiiiit!!" Shiven cursed aloud as the unconscious Latikaru was whipped free from her shoulder and Shiven herself was slung head first into a giant tree trunk, making quite a crack on contact. Latiar lost grip of Laticer as himself, Seritya, Nova & Toran were all thrown down further afield into the plains, while Laticer and Latikaru had by pure luck, managed to be flung into cover from the shockwave, deep in a hedgerow. Eventually the shockwave came to calm down, at which point Latiar sharply picked himself up from the bumpy grassland, whipped his head back round to face the fortress and to his pure horror, saw fire and smoke roaring from every inch of the building!

The Adventure Begins
Shiven turned and glared dangerously at Nova, Nova thought nothing of it and just stared smugly back at Shiven. Suddenly Shiven launched herself full force towards Nova, sending her reeling back and cracking the back of her head against the stone wall, where from there Shiven gripped her neck tightly threatening to choke her! Shiven then began screaming furiously into her face "what the hell did you do?! Why was ac3 not neutralized like the other two?! What the fuck did you miss out?!" Nova, gagging for breath & shuddering from the stench of Shiven's right in her face could do nothing but stutter and shake her head timidly, small tears beginning to form in her eyes, knowing that Shiven was much stronger than her & Meta would certainly not be happy! "Answer me!" Shiven yelled angrily. She loosened her grip on Nova's neck and at last, Nova was able to reply, "I-I-I don't know! I'm sorry! I swear I created him the exact same way as the other two! Please.

Parody Of "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer"
Rudolph and APH don't belong to moi!
"England the bushy eye-browed Britishman, had very big eye-brows, and if you ever saw them, they would look like catapillers.
All of the other Allies, used to laugh and call him names. They never let poor England, join in any Allied attacks.
Then one foggy war's eve, America came to say, 'England with your eye-brows so bushy, you should go and scare Italy!'
Then all the other countries, were awoken by Italy's scream, and Germany went and blew up, all of Frances vital regions!"

kicking her feet
harder and harder,
as the swingset creaked
She finally reached the peak,
"Mama, I'm gonna fly."
and so she did;
three feet into the air,
sticking the landing
like a gymnast
And I wonder everyday
if those were the same words
before jumping off that bridge,
unable to remember,
you only fly for a little while.

Quando ela decidiu pegar a via galática, não se despediu de ninguém.
Foi tudo tão pouco a pouco que ninguém percebeu quando ela já estava fora de alcance, ou então, não se importaram. Olhar o céu antes de dormir. Tentar entender pra onde iam as estrelas durante o dia -- ficavam invisíveis, como ela, sob a luz do sol? Levantar depois que mamãe já tinha dado beijo de boa noite pra continuar olhando pela janela. Só um pouco mais. Falta de sono à noite. Vigília.
Muito sono de dia. Chega do preço de feijão, de visita na casa da tia Maricota, quero lá saber o que foi que o pai disse, tinha lição pra hoje? Sono. Sonhos. Tão bom sonhar à luz do dia. Tanto tipo, tanta coisa, tão diferente dessa vida tão-tá.

Go ahead and read the Artist Comment first if you want a Synopsis.
The Planet, Aquaris, has been in a crisis. For as far back as they can remember this watery world has been a thriving place for all manner of creature. The world has not a drop of dry land and volcanic vents cause vibrant streams of heated water, in what the residence call fluxes, to flow continuously keeping the water temperature comfortable and steady. The planets Fluxes cause the water on Aquaris to become turbulent, and while more and more Flux chambers open and close on the sea floor they can become so massive they can be seen even from the planets orbit. The turbulent waters of Aquaris has made it the most majestic planet in its system, naming Aquaris one of the top 5 most beautiful places to visit next to its sister planets, Cratus and Venaly.
In recent decades however, some of Aquariss top researchers noticed a steady decline in the number of planetary fluxes on Aquaris.

Our tour would have to wait, since we both agreed rather abrubtly to go back inside.
We got inside and I shook off in a corner after she dismounted, having stayed completely dry under my tails.
"That was unexpected. Your tails were certainly quite comfortable, though."
I finished shaking off and even sent out a bit of extra heat to dry myself fast. "Yeah, it was definitely an inconvenience. We can go out later, though; there's no rush to it."
"Well, you're certainly right about that" she cooed, giving me another particularly soft and fuzzy hug, before going to look out the window. "I've never liked the rain anyway, and it's more then comfortable in here." She said, turning back towards me.

I finally write written report since my return from BronyCon and it has nothing to do with the reporting organized details of the trip, nor responding to the dozens of messages I should be responding to. Way to go hima.
Didn't bother to re-read either.
Just wanted something to vent.
Chatting over with some friends on Skype, accidentally that irking and "hard to fathom the reason why" topic of the status of american animation today surfaced. I mean, let's go back to the 90's and the beggining of the last decade for a moment. What was on television then? How did Nickelodeon and Disney Channel operate? How did Cartoon Network start?
Nickelodeon had been around for a little while by the time Cartoon Network came to be if I recall correctly. And by 1993 it started producing original animated content. Animated content with creative settings and clever humor. Either characters we could relate to, or character

It was mid-morning when the zebra mare trotted into Ponyville.
Her appearance was striking, even compared to the citizens of the town with their brightly-colored coats and manes: the zebra's coat was a very light grey with black stripes on her legs, tail and mohawk-like mane. A large jagged pattern of black ran down her spine and halfway down her barrel, dark grey sun-like whorls were set upon her flanks and her muzzle was squared off as opposed to having the dainty rounding of most mares.
A series of golden rings encircled her neck from her collarbone to her jaw and another similar set were worn in the middle of her left foreleg. A large golden hoop hanging from each ear completed the exotic picture.
The zebra mare's name was Zecora. And she was becoming annoyed.
A small group of the daily crowd had stopped going about their routines - shopping, visiting friends and such - and were staring openly at her. She was still a source of c

I have ideas.
I have the hope.
But I also have fear.
Fear that my efforts will cause me pain.
Fear that all of the effort will be in vain.
No one cares about the words in a story.
No one would ever know of the defeats or glory.
I create out of want and,
When I'm happy with the creation,
I try to share it with others,
To get a bit of appreciation.
No one bothers to view it,
For they see reading as a chore.
If I don't force myself to hope,
I won't care anymore.
