"Okay, Lyra, you can do this! Remember: balance, focus, speed and rhythm..."
The minty-green unicorn drew a deep breath, psyching herself up for the practice ahead of her. Then she reared up on her hind legs, her forelegs waving in the air as she sought to balance herself.
"Eyes front, don't look down, the vertical line from the base of your horn will pass through your body to the floor," Lyra muttered as she flung her arms to the side. The unicorn tilted her shoulders back and thrust her hips forward. Her tail stuck straight out from her rump, helping her keep her balance in the un-ponylike pose.
She swayed a few times, but corrected it with quick arm movements and by shifting her hooves marginally further apart. Then she was standing solidly on her hind legs, her forelegs held by her sides. "All right!" Lyra said, risking a quick glance at the mirror she'd brought down into the basement without Bon-Bon noticing.

LesbianGod loved the two girls at the end of my street.Lesbian4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Everywhere they went, they went together,
hand-in-hand so they didn't get lost,
laughing at everything and nothing
all at once.
He was so proud of them.
They never stole, they never swore,
they brushed their teeth twice a day
and always said their prayers.
It was a gift, said the townspeople,
that two girls as perfect as they were
were born in the same place.
an even greater gift, said they,
that those two were the best of friends.
Long nights spent giggling in rooms with closed doors
was a good thing, back then.
halfway between their houses
and in the middle of the street,
they realized that they loved each other.
A gaze lingered a moment too long,
a heart beat a little too fast...
They kissed for the first time on a park bench,
hidden from the rest of the world.
God doesn't love them anymore.

When this world of ours crashes,
It will never be happiness we seek
But freedom, creativity for the masses
We don't want to exist, we want to live.
Your corporation is corrupted
Emotionless, colourless, lifeless
All the power has gone to your head
But what do you fear?
That is why we are here.
To take down the scarecrows
Watch your back.

A Pony and a Portal
Twilight Sparkle was out documenting some of the wild flowers near her house when she spotted a small, white object lying in the tall grass.
For once, the unicorn had taken a break from studying magic and had decided instead to explore outside her backyard. After redesigning some of the library for an extension of her bedroom, she had unearthed a variety of gardening and flower identification books. Not one to leave a book unturned, she started researching and, like most things she researched, became instantly obsessed. All of the flowers outside of the library now had neat, pristine little signs telling what genus and species, how to care for them, and other minutia.
When all of the flowers at the library had been deciphered, Twilight started toward the outskirts of the Everfree Forest. After identifying some toadflax, three kinds of daisies, and more than ten types of clover (and all of them delicious), Twili

A small alien spacecraft slipped undetected past a stationary marker buoy. This buoy is one of trillions that make up a grid that marks the border between known and unknown space. The two creatures within this craft belong to a society of many alien races known as the Concord. Every individual is forbidden from passing this border by law of this Concord. However, these two aliens will risk it for their goal is to explore uncharted worlds, beyond the borders to scavenge anything they can find to take back and sell in the black market.

Dear Twilight Sparkle,
My faithful student, I am surprised that you let Spike to write a letter to me. I'm very happy that he learn a lesson ever since your friend, Rarity learned hers back in Cloudsdale.
I also forgive him for his past actions like the time he sent a bunch of scrolls over me when I was busy reading one of my own. And I also didn't forget that time when he burned and delivered popcorn onto my bed when I was asleep. It was tasty but not at the right time when I'm not supposed to have a midnight snack, I just brushed too.
Anyway, how's the meteor shower which my sister demonstrated it to you & all of Ponyville back few nights ago? It is surprising that she haven't been putting up such a demonstration for a very long time since she was banished.
Lastly, I also bought a replacement copy of "Astronomical Astronomer's Almanac to All Things Astronomy", I bet the burned or torn pages I saw are coming from Spike which I got the feeling it must have been an accident. I hope you

A soft light filters through the curtains, casting a milky glow about the room making the usually dreary mansion look less. He stretches his arms out with a slight yawn; it's been so long since he's actually slept well. Not that he slept much at all last night, being on his toes watching for enemies to take his love away.
His eyes drift to the small body beside him, his sides rising and falling at a steady rhythm. Smiling fondly to himself Sebastian brushes back some of Ciel's hair from his face, the boy's expression completely peaceful. He makes a face in his sleep, his ski slope nose wrinkling slightly as he murmurs something, rolling on his side facing Sebastian. Exhaling Sebastian sits upright raking his hands through his hair staring at his clothes on the ground. Silently he dresses, fixing any imperfections in the mirror before wrenching open the curtains allowing more sunlight to blare into the room.
Ciel's eyebrows crease as he plunges under the covers emitting a slight moan. "

This will be the last letter I write to you as I finish up my role in reporting what I've learned about friendship. I've received your letter requesting me to return to Canterlot and teach in the School for Gifted Unicorns, and I cannot thank you enough for such an opportunity. It also seems fitting that I must leave Ponyville as well. My friends had all found their callings recently, one by one leaving Ponyville to pursue their dreams until Spike and I were the only ones left. I know now that it's my turn to branch out, and continue my life under your guidance.

There I stood. Speaking with the voice of my people, showing the world what we are standing for. The suit I was wearing wasn't my taste, but I had to show them I was serious, that I'm still the strongest in this world. There were many countries at the world meeting. Not all countries were present, but of course all the "important" countries were. I tried to impressed them, to make them listen to the voice of my people, and from the serious looks of their faces I could conclude I was succeeding. And even though every small nod, every sign of interest was important to me, the only thing what really matter to me was the man sitting closeted to me. England had his poker face on, which disappointed me a bit. I had no idea if he was liking my ideas or not, so I even tried harder.
I remember the first important meeting during which I was allowed to speak. The days before that meeting I had studied really hard, I didn't want to forget something which I had to say. But when I stood there and it

The sun was setting in Canterlot with the moon just creeping over the horizon. Princess Celestia walked into her bedroom, her mane put up into curlers. Luna followed close behind her, listening intently while sipping a cup of coffee as Celestia related the tale of her most recent visit to Ponyville.
"I mean seriously Luna, this is the second time they could have avoided the problem by simply ASKING me. Why don't they feel like they can just talk to me? It's like I'm PRINCESS Celestia instead of Princess Celestia."
Celestia's horn glowed as she levitated her crown off of her head. She briefly considered flinging it against the wall in frustration, but composed herself and set it down in its place on her bedside table. She floated over her nightgown to guard against the chill night air of the mountain as she vented her annoyance to her sister.

Did you suffer any, please say it isn't so!

For another, she had been scolded by all her teachers for her lack of knowledge and for not paying attention. Her happy-go-lucky nature had not endeared her to any of the others and she was forced to sit alone during the lunch break.
That was more than enough reason for Kai Xia and her gang of borderline delinquents to make an example of her in front most the Royal Fire Nation Academy.

How to Know if You're TransI see these questions sometimes, about "how can you be sure you're trans?" I see the sentiment often in articles that claim to "question" transsexuality, from well-meaning but pain-in-the-ass bystanders, and so on. A lot of it gives me a migraine the size of a T-Rex behind my right eye, so I thought I might help clear up some of the confusion.How to Know if You're Trans4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
There is only one way to "know" you're trans. And that's because you feel you are. Does this answer seem vague to you? It should, because it is. As much as others would like to tell you otherwise, there is no "test" for being trans. There is no criteria that if you check enough boxes, congratulations, you're transgendered. I ID very strongly as trans, but I fail nearly every single criteria required for Aetna's insurance coverage of trans care. In Aetna's eyes, I'm not a "true transsexual,"

Somewhere, Deryn was furious.
Or at least, Alek hoped she was. Because she wouldn't be Deryn if she wasn't.
It had not been Alek's idea for Deryn to wear the heavy, gaudy blue dress. Though he had agreed with his advisors that the dress closely matched the colour his wife's eyes had been, he had objected to the fact that it wasn't her. Deryn would have wanted to be in a flight suit, as if in preparation for her eternal flight. His advisors argued that they were talking about an Empress, not a soldier (something Alek did not agree with) and that she needed a proper, traditional ceremony. Dr. Barlow wasn't even there to argue in her defense; she had died 5 years previous of a heart condition.
He glanced at Deryn's dress-clad form, proof of his failure to her memory, and fought the urge to both laugh and cry.
Laugh, because Deryn would be scowling if she could see herself like this. Empress she may be, lady she was not.
Cry, because she'll never know.
