Walking through the house at night was a bit scary. You felt the walls seemly loom over you as you used them to keep your from bumping into anything.
You entered your son's room and flicked the lights on, gently looking at him with a smile. His eyes were full of tears. He had you [e/c] eyes but had his father's hair.
Gracefully moving towards his bedside, you hugged your little boy in your arms. You remember that first time you held your newborn son in your arms only 5 years ago. Even though exhausted, you felt pride well up in you and you held the small child in your arms.
Realizing your son was still crying, you looked down at him,"My little Luddy. What's wrong?"

Vocaloid TV special script WIPVocaloid is a software program that turns musical notes and lyrics into singing. It works with virtual singers - databases made from recordings of real voice actors and singers. Fans of Vocaloid also refer to the singers and the characters associated with them as Vocaloids. It is these characters, whose personalities are shaped by the composers who create with them, that capture the boundless imagination of fans.Vocaloid TV special script WIP2 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Computer-generated speech and singing are nothing new. Even before the IBM PC, (true?) Microcomputers were speaking on command. The demo of speech synthesizer SAM for the Commodore 64 included a rendition of _The Star-Spangled Banner_, showcasing SAM's ability to change pitch. However, SAM and his contemporaries were totally, and unmistakably, computer-generated.
Computer games may have been the first commercial users of human speech synthesized into digital music. 2003's Kuma Uta or Bear Song, and 2007's The Idolmaster took samples of voice actors and turned them into songs i

The Muffin Queen
Like yeast in dough, I rose up high.
But soon, I ceased to fly.
Soon I was caked in my own demise.
Baked into this pastry disguise.
But thou hath set me free.
With a bite, munch, crunch. 1, 2, 3.
I hath been set free, but thou hath consumed me.
Not 1 but 2.
Mine own eyes seeing only what be in front of thee.
My simple plea?
To escape from this catacomb that surrounds me.
Oh, Silly mare.
With your eyes drooping and your heart beating.
Your bags filled with letters and your mind in gutters.
Wings of grey.
A mane like sunshine.
Tis' be very colors of that which be mine.

You look over at the people next to you, both fast asleep as you saw the sun peering out from the side of the Earth. It took your breath away and you smiled,'I haven't seen you in so long Germany.' You think about your parent's reaction to telling them you were moving far away. They had all but forgotten about Germany...or Ludwig as they knew him.

I always reach for the light that is shining far away... and yet never quite manage to touch it.....

I smiled, giggled, then laughed as we danced around the garden. Pink sakura flowers covered the earth softly like a carpet.
My heart felt warm, I haven't smiled like that since two years.
You laughed along with me, wrapping your hands around mine.

You're lying in the bedroom of your hotel on the bed. This is your last day in Germany and you are allowed to do anything you want today as long as you make it back to the hotel by seven that night.
Your mind wanders back to when Germany kissed you before you last saw. Your teacher was obviously outraged by that action. It's not like you did anything anyway. He did it to you.
You put your fingers to your lips gently, blushing a bit. It was still early in the morning and your roomates were still asleep. You sighed a bit and looked at the phone beside your table. The clock that was in it's shadow showed 6:23 and you know the teacher will be waking everyone up for breakfast in about 7 minutes.
You look up and the ceiling and shut your eyes,'He's not awake yet, I know it. Besides, he's probably forgotten about me.'

Mr. Russia's home.
It's not that he did anything to you per say, but that way he treated you and the three Baltics was unsavory. Every night, you would use what little energy you had to cry as Lithuania coaxed you with soothing words.
One night, Mr. Russia took you away and left you outside of England's house, claiming that a newly formed and young nation was too much for him. Needless to say, England was rather surprised to see you sleeping on his doorstep the next morning but the second he found out you were once Russia's territory, he took you in with open arms.
The first few weeks with England were tough on you. You mainly stayed secluded in your room, refusing to come out for anything but to clean off or eating something.

She saw the purple unicorn's eyes widen and turn to run.
"Oh no," Applejack said to herself determined, "You ain't getting' away again." AJ snatched up a rope from a nearby stand and broke into a full out run. Twilight was slowing in pace but her horn had begun to glow. A flash of light and Twilight had disappeared from the market.

Traveling for a pony takes a lot longer on hoof than in a machine. This was the number one lesson Flim learned as he made his way back to Ponyville. It had taken him three times as long to travel the same distance he had traveled in the Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000.
Flim noticed the small town of Ponyville coming into view. Jumping behind a bush, in a way that only a childish yet fully grown stallion can. After staying the night in a small and eccentric village, Flim came across a joke shop. Just the thing he needed.
Flim had played a prank on his brother a couple years back, which had involved coat dye and a lot of screaming. Coat die would keep him perfectly disguised in Ponyville, as they would most likely run him out at first glance.
Now behind a bush, Flim replaced his usually cream colored coat with a bright blue. It was perfect, no one would recognize him now! It was the perfect plan. Flim returned to the path a continued on his way to Ponyville, completely unaware of the blu

The speakers welcome her, on an expanse of devastated floor tiles.
By now, she probably knows this place more than she knows herself. Today a warm light pierces the panels, making things even easier. She does feel puzzled, just like she was back then green branches and a few vegetables are not enough to keep one's sanity intact. She has to focus on the regular shapes of the old test chambers, clinging to the hint of familiarity they preserve behind their destroyed faces.
Yet, in the end, is not that different. Not less operational, not less crazy than it used to be. The elevator comes to fetch her as promptly as ever, the doors open smoothly, the announcer talks about death in cheerful frequencies.
The only missing element is the voice; other than that, the feeling is exactly the same. She never knows whether she'll be killed in the next few seconds or impeccably taken care of. Will they ever make up their mind? She guesses not. Uncertainty must be Aperture's trademark.

“Work work work,” called the voice from behind him. “Don’t you ever sleep?” Sterling smiled at the familiar timbre, but kept his eyes trained on the task at hand. The glow of his magic guided the thin needle through the fabric, trailing behind it a delicate orange thread, the same color as his cutie mark. One of the only things that annoyed him about his work was that when it was done perfectly, his finesse was almost imperceptible. No one would ever see this seam, and that meant no one, no laypony anyway, would ever understand just how difficult it was.

Fluttershy slept peacefully, her animals dozed around her. The moon had just lowered beneath the horizon as the night entered into the early hours of morning. Above the mare's head a puff of green glowing smoke formed, swirling around an object as it slowly solidified. The smoke disappeared and the object at the center of it became subject to gravity once more, and fell with a clunk on Fluttershy's head.
With a yelp Fluttershy sat up, throwing the object onto her lap. "Oww," she whispered probing the growing lump with a hoof and wincing. Her gaze then fell to the item in her lap, a purple gem shining in the starlight. Eyes widening Fluttershy lifted the gem in her forehoof, "The sign."
