Dark clouds loomed over the landscape that the members of Operation: Recolonize had staked as their own. Like many other traits of the planet, knowledge of rain was programmed into EVE's brain, and she knew she had once been in a rain storm while in stasis, but none of that made EVE any more used to that which she was feeling for the first time.
It took EVE about five minutes to figure out why humans mostly headed for cover when storms came. At the very least, they made one feel uncomfortable. She didn't have the same issue with getting wet that her organic comrades had, but rather there was a special issue only she had. The crevice that her head stood above acted as a bowl, and the water that dripped from her head all fell into it and started to build up. It felt so awkward that she's have to shake the water out rather frequently. The storm's complete covering over their patch of the sky only pointed to this annoying routine continuing for the enti

Her eyes were soft, despite the recent argument, because for some reason she just couldn't keep angry, all the anger seemed to fade away as soon as it showed. The effect this place had on her was almost unnatural. Issuing a soft sigh as her gaze flickered over to him, she smiled at Shadow. "This place is great you know. So for whatever reason you did bring me here, I'm glad that you did." She linked her hands behind her back and looked around with her shimmering emerald eyes. Shadow turned to face her directly this time, the mask was still in play, however cracking just a bit as he looked to her with mild curiosity. He still wanted to know what it was about Amy that made him think differently of her. Clearing his mind quickly he blinked his eyes, the frown still across his face as he looked outwards.Chasing After Dreams Part 108 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Pinkie Pie: War is war
The rising sun was like fire. It was blazing without the heat and burning without the flames, bathing the landscape in red. The whole scene had the appearance of a sunset in reverse. Creeping towards a sleepy village, the glowing light slid over the mountains and hills, scorching the fields and trees. However, as the stalking light reached the Everfree forest, clouds began to move in, black and grey claws grasping for the glowing orb. A tiny sliver was all the reached the village before the clouds snuffed it out like a dying candle.
The village of Ponyville was in as sorry a state as ever. A year had passed since the war that had caused the worst of the damages but still they lingered like an unattended wound. Some attempts at repairs had been made, boards hammered over holes, debris swept from the streets, but otherwise they had been left to fester and putrefy. Time had also taken its toll, but it was secondary

Flippy was quickly rinsing off the soap as the hot water flowed down his body on a cool, calm night. Today was the big day, the day he would take Flaky out, and he was going to be late. He felt a bit nervous not only because of his tardy appearance, but because he has never been in a relationship before. He just didn't want to make a bad move and screw it all up. The thing he worried about the most was his flip-outs. He didn't want his demon to hurt Flaky, but there was nothing he could do. He could only hope for the best. Other than that, he was very eager to be with his love once again. He realized that there was no more soap left on his body and he shut the water off. He stepped out of his glass-walled shower

It was so difficult to believe that only a few hours ago he had been fighting for his life, and the lives of his friends, on Black Comet, against Black Doom. He wondered what the others were doing now. That blue hedgehog Sonic would probably be running free again, an adventure forgotten in an instant. Knuckles? He would be back guarding that Master Emerald, and if Shadow knew Rouge, she would be going after it. Tails would be back in his workshop, busy on his newest creation. They would have all forgotten what had happened in the last few hours. But Shadow couldn't forget. He had barely any memory and he wanted to hold on to what little he had.

Both Zib and Caitlin rushed for the Quaza room as fast as they could, followed closely by an excited Quadal. They entered the room of eight pods. Only two were open so far.
"Alright Caitlin. Remember. Do it like the others did. Just feel which one is calling to you most, and hold your badge up to it." Caitlin rolled her eyes.

She held the badge up to the pod and in a few seconds it shot out a beam of green light at the pod's activation console, and in a flash, the pod opened up, unleashing that same purple smoke that Furno first emerged from. Caitlin choked slightly from all the smoke, but she still lived. And she looked up, as a slightly dark-green figure emerged from the pod, with a female appearance no doubt. The female robot spoke.

The basking heat of the Autumn sun seemed stronger than usual for the season, causing droplets of sweat to form beneath the exhausted farm pony's mane. She reared up for a final strong buck, impacting the solid tree trunk with a loud reverberating stomp which was soon followed by the cascading sound of apples falling into the awaiting buckets beneath the golden leaves. Applejack brushed her hoof against her damp mane before tipping her beloved hat upwards to view her hard work. Her aching muscles felt well deserved as her eyes panned the horizon, the beautiful sight of every tree in an acres radiance being free of her families apples, the buckets of which were being collected from below by a struggling colt honing the same colours as the season's leaves.

It is of course well known that careless talk costs lives, but the full scale of the problem is not always appreciated. Examples are rife throughout history wherein freak wormholes carry otherwise harmless words through rips in the fabric of the universe. What is not as well known, however, is that these rips in the space-time continuum traverse not only our universe, but other universes. Universes that are quite similar to our own, but differ in details so small as to be barely noticeable.
Imagine a world where perfect grammar is not only requested—it is required by law. A world where split infinitives merit jail time. A world where a sentence ended in a preposition is punishable by death.
