CHAPTER 1: THE TRESPASSER
"Busy day, Bob?" The museum guard asked his comrade.
Bob chuckled and adjusted his hat, "Busy doesn't cut it, Frank. Ever since they dug up that one gem, the...the...
"Gem of winds?"
"Yeah, that's it! This place has been busting in with tourists, archeologists, scientists. Hell, even authors."
"Probably because of that myth that the gem carries."
"Something about luck comes to he who holds it."
"Yeah, maybe it'll give me a raise."
The two guards laughed and talked some more as they neglected to see two figures begin to scale the side of the building.
"You hear them two knuckleheads? I tell ya, guards these days..."
"More scaling less talking, Thank you."
The two figures climbed to the roof top of the museum, cautiously attempting to stay in the shadows. The taller one, Sly, had a black and yellow robe that covered most of his body while the shorter one, LB, had a blue robe that matched the attire of her partner. Both had b

Spyro X Cynder- Memorial DaySpyro X Cynder- Memorial Day3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Drawing requested by: Nikkoulover
It was Memorial Day, a day when all living creatures should pay their respect to their dead love ones. Normally, Spyro and Cynder don't celebrate it, because at first, they didn't had a purpose for it. This year though, they do; Ignitus. As Spyro and Cynder prepared to go to the burnt grounds, Spyro's head was full of memories of Ignitus; it was full of memories of good times, and bad, even his death. It was the same for Cynder, who once in a while still blames herself for the past few years, when the dark master was still alive.
"I-I can't believe it. It's already been a year since his death, and yet it feels like it happened just yesterday," said Spyro as tears started to form.
"I know, Spyro," Cynder said as she wiped away his tears. A few moments later, they headed off for the death place of Ignitus. As they arrived, things were just the same. Thankfu
Back From The Dead?Former Freelancer Agent Washington, now new leader of the Blue Team, never felt relaxed in such a damn long time.Back From The Dead?2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Over the duration of the past couple of months things have been hectic to say the least. His adventures had led him down through more twists and turns than anyone can possibly imagine; from his early days of being a Recovery Agent trying to find out who was stealing the AIs and armour equipment from dead Freelancers to recent events that transpired on the planet, Sidewinder.
If he wanted to sell his story to the press, not that he was tempted to in case he got captured by the UNSC, he bet a lot of people across the galaxy would take one surprised look at him and then call him crazy or something similar. Nope, he was more than thrilled to be no longer a part of Project Freelancer, a military organisation that caused him nothing but grief over the years. From this moment on, Wash wanted more than anything to have a peaceful existence, opting to stay with the Reds and the Blue
SinWash sat awkwardly on one side of the bed, shifting uncomfortably, freezing in place when he realised he was just irritating South further. He drew his knees up to his chest and hugged them tight, as if he could protect himself from the rage of the woman on the other end of the bed. He felt very vulnerable just sitting there, but he didn't dare get up to get dressed in fear of provoking her.Sin2 years ago in Romance More Like This
They'd… well, they'd done it. And admittedly, it was Wash's first time (he didn't know about South, and wasn't sure he wanted to), but that wasn't the issue. If he'd been rubbish, South would just tease him endlessly before promising to get him more practice in the future. No. That wasn't the problem. The problem was he'd yelled out another woman's name, a woman who he didn't even know, and it was all because of–
Dude, I said I was sorry. It just... happened, alright? I didn't mean to piss of your girlfriend–
Shut up! Wash yelled in his mind. Epsilon was silent. I'm lucky if
My Little Amnesia: Part 2Once the door closed behind her, silence fell throughout the room. Twilight Sparkle waited a few seconds, debating in her head which door to check first. Once she decided, she stepped over to the door closest to her on the right wall, and gazed inside the already open doorway. This room was similiar to the one she had seen before, except there was a small hole in the wall. It looks like someone was trying to escape. I wonder what happened... A disturbing thought played in her head, and she quickly shook it off. Stepping inside the room, she searched around for something that would be useful. Upon finding nothing of use, she left the room, and headed over to the door that was located on the same wall. Once she got that door open, she stepped inside. "It seems the layout of these rooms are all the same." She said to herself, as she examined the familiar-looking room for any items. The first thing she noticed was a small note sitting on the table located next to the door. She pickeMy Little Amnesia: Part 23 years ago in Horror More Like This

Although all of the agents of Project Freelancer had been pardoned for any actions they performed during their time in the program, his freedom had come with a few restrictions.
He wished he could have re-entered the force with Wyoming, serving as a soldier in a non-top-secret program. He even would have liked to take up work like Wash, who was helping to rehabilitate soldiers suffering from the inflictions of war. Instead, he was deemed too volatile to be allowed any connections to the military and found himself here.
With no hope of re-entering the military the only thing left for him was to return to the one other place he could feel at home. His grandmother's alpaca farm.

The sound of water falling to the ground echoed throughout the small, cold room. Twilight Sparkle's eyes slowly slid open, as she finally regained conciousness. A few moans escaped her weary lips and she forced her tired head up off the ground. "Wha-....Where am I?" She muttered quietly to herself, as her eyes began to focus, and she got a better view of her surroundings. She was in a small room, made mostly of what seemed to be rocks, and other hard material. It seemed like a prison, the only furniture in the room consisting of a wooden bed-frame, and a small wooden table sitting cozily in the opposing corner. Ontop of the table, was some kind of record player, none like any other Twilight had seen in her time. After a few moments of her examining the room, she attempted to stand, but her knees bucked underneath her, causing her to fall back onto her rear. "Uhnf.." She placed a shakey hand on her head, attempting to ease her throbbing headache. What was going on?
Spyro and Cynder's Everlasting LoveIt was late at night, and Spyro was walking down to the balcony for some fresh air. As he walked onto it, he breathed the air in deeply, allowing the scent of the forest to fill his nostrils.Spyro and Cynder's Everlasting Love3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Man, I love the smell of night," exclaimed Spyro. Just after saying that, he heard someone crying. He happened to look in the direction it was coming from, and found Cynder. He went up to her, and as he came closer to her, he took note of the bruises on her back, and the gash on her head. Immediately, he got worried. His walking turned into a little jog as he got closer to her. Cynder looked up to see who was coming, and notice it was him. She turned her head away, then shifted herself to where her back was facing against Spyro.
"Go away, Spyro! I don't want you to see me like this!" she cried. It didn't work, for Spyro only got more worried about her.
"Cynder, what happened? Who did this to you?" he asked in deep concern. She covered her face with her wings, crying harder than earlier
Rarity Character ReviewAt times it seems as if the character of Rarity in "Friendship is Magic" is unfairly treated. Some accuse her of being self-obsessed and shallow, whilst others contend that she is their least favourite pony. And sure, Rarity may not be the most adorable of ponies, but this does not mean that she doesn't have an appeal entirely of her own. Fans are rightly divided when it comes to Rarity, but few could deny the maturity and elegance that she conveys at every opportunity.Rarity Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Her obsession with fashion and looking appealing can be both blatant and subtle. At times, such as in "A Bird in the Hoof" Rarity is seen leaving the party whilst demanding that other ponies remain away from her, as to prevent her dress from getting touched by their dirty hooves. Similarly, in "Dragonshy" Rarity packs an extra scarf, presumably because, regardless of the situation, she wishes to look good. These are just two examples of Rarity at her most extreme, but they are by no means the only situations where Rarit

His one good eye looked her up and down, a hint of concern in it as he checked to be sure she was alright. As his gaze landed on her head she saw his eye widen, and his hand reach up to his mouth to stop a poorly concealed chuckle.
"Don't you dare say whatever it is you're thinking," Carolina threatened, her eyes narrowing further.
"Your uh," York cleared his throat with a noise that sounded suspiciously like another strangled chuckle. "Your hair looks nice."
With an angry cry Carolina hurled the box of hair dye into the nearby garbage can. "York, don't make fun of me," she growled, crossing her arms angrily over her chest.
"No, I mean it," York said, walking towards her, arms out, still trying to suppress a grin. "It uh, makes you look young and hip."
"That's what I was trying to do, but look at it!" She fumed, emba
Luna, Lyra and Bon-Bon ReviewThe fandom that has developed in the wake of "Friendship is Magic" is largely something that I cherish and make a part of my daily life. I would like to consider myself actively involved in the community, spending a lot of time surfing Equestria Daily, commenting on various excerpts of pony news, talking to a lot of bronies both on DeviantArt and outside the site, and even lending my hand to a pony-related project or two. I love chatting to the many unique individuals who all have their own reasons for adoring the show, and I find it to be a thoroughly engaging experience to converse with other people of a similar mindset to myself. I have seen excellent remixes and mash-ups of the songs and scenes from the show and have been, frankly, amazed by the fan-made content. Only today did I see a custom Pinkie animation made by one very talented individual who should be offered a part animating on the show right away. I am also aware that some fans like the show, but prefer the fan communityLuna, Lyra and Bon-Bon Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

A rose would've been hard to get the Director allowed the Freelancers to celebrate the day however they wished, but did not give them leave or provide them with gifts to give to their valentines.Red Rose3 years ago in Romance More Like This
So not only did she not know how the rose came to be on the Mother of Invention, but she didn't know who delivered it to her door.
There were quite a few names she could cross off straight away York, who was completely loyal to Carolina; Maine, who was clearly uninterested; Wyoming, who routinely made it clear, through tone if not words, that he disliked her. Most of the women of the Project hadn't exhibited any same-sex tendencies, so South assumed it was a man who had placed the rose.
But which man?
South snarled, throwing the rose across her room. It lightly bounced off the wall and landed on the floor. Either
Applejack Character ReviewIt comes as something of a surprise that Applejack represents the spirit of Honesty within "Friendship is Magic". Although one would scarcely dare to call Applejack a liar, Honesty is perhaps not her greatest virtue. Nevertheless, Applejack has so many positive attributes honesty included that her representation in the Pilot as this particular embodiment of the Elements of Harmony makes sense, even if it seems a little odd at first. After all, what else would Applejack represent? Her character within the show is synonymous with both a maturity beyond her years and an unmatched compassion for her peers, to the extent that she becomes, to this viewer, the unofficial leader of the group.Applejack Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Although it is well-established that Twilight Sparkle is the 'main' member of the core six, Applejack has more qualities that could be associated to a lead protagonist. Her behaviour is almost always optimistic; rarely do we see an example where she succumbs to defeat or negativity, even whe
Rainbow Dash Character ReviewBold, brave, daring and tenacious...these are words that one would usually associate with Rainbow Dash in "Friendship is Magic". But how about adorable, innocent and, at times, insecure? Rainbow Dash may be the sporty member of the group and the most tomboyish female within the mane cast, but this does not detract from the fact that, like every other pony, she has a multi-layered personality that allows her to express all sorts of emotions, both positive and negative. Some are naturally the sort of temperaments that one would normally match Rainbow Dash with, but it would be a great injustice to merely suggest that Rainbow Dash is concerned with competitions and little else.Rainbow Dash Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Of course, there are competitive elements in her personality. It is revealed early into the series that she and Applejack, although good friends, are also rivals.

This is but one of the legends of which the ponies speak
Long ago, there was a land governed by madness. No happiness existed for the ponies there; life was miserable and brief.
As the ponies of this land cried out for salvation, two sisters answered their call. They cast down the chaos and brought order with the magic of the Elements of Harmony.
The elder sister raised the sun at dawn and bathed the land in the warmth and heat of day. The younger sister called the moon to the sky at dusk, and by her grace the evenings were calm and pleasant. Together the two sisters ruled the land in harmony and equality.
But the younger sister grew angry at the ponies who were her subjects, for they relished her sister's day while casting aside her own lovely night. The younger sister's hate and fury consumed her; she became Nightmare Moon, a wicked pony who wished to plunge the world into eternal shadow.
To free the land from Nightmare Moon's darkness, t
Pinkie Pie Character ReviewTrue story when I first decided to write this review, it was simply going to read, "She's just being Pinkie Pie", as I felt that this would be the perfect way to summarise her detailed and intricate character. But then I figured that that would be taking the easy way out, and thus decided to write a full-size review for Pinkie Pie. After all, she deserves just as much analysis as every other character within the mane cast, even if trying to rationalise Pinkie Pie's behaviour is something of an impossible task at times.Pinkie Pie Character Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Pinkie Pie is the sort of character that makes a fan-base. Whereas some characters rightfully deliver their own iconic lines and meme-worthy phrases, Pinkie Pie is in a league of her own. This is because her character is noticeably different from the rest of the mane cast, placing her in a position almost outside of the usual narrative of "Friendship is Magic". She can be a narrator for events outside of her control; she can break the fourth wall with glances to t

He grabbed onto the wall to keep himself from going too far, and ducked behind it as a second body followed him.
"Oh my GOD, York!" Washington was breathing heavily. "I can't fucking believe you set off the alarm in the WHOLE ENTIRE building!"
York looked at him, a little surprised. "You can't?"
A smirk broke the expression, and it stayed firmly on his face even as Washington smacked the back of his head with the blunt end of his gun.

She Can't Hear MeThere was very little blood from South, you see.She Can't Hear Me2 years ago in Drama More Like This
It was quite disappointing. After all the pain she’d caused, all the people she’d betrayed, all the minds she had tipped over the edge… just a tiny, quick spurt of blood from the back of the helmet hardly seemed fair. Her helmet, yes, must have caught most of it –you don’t get shot in the head and just bleed a tiny bit, that would be silly. Head wounds are supposed to bleed a lot, right?
She also took a long, long time to fall properly.
Her knees buckled almost instantly and she wasn’t standing up right, but it had taken her head such a long time to hit the ground. Her knees had buckled, her grip on her weapon loosened and her posture was less rigid… why was there such a time difference between the bang and the thump?

"Forget it, South. You wouldn't understand," Wash replied, trying to push past her.

"Because you never got an AI," Wash said flatly. South flinched, and he took her distraction as an opportunity to get away.
