We had something great, then it was washed away. We had something more, then I can explain. I'm sorry.
Jimmy Owen 'The Reverend Tholomew Plague' Sullivan is in his Eternal Rest, in his own little Afterlife. We will never let his memory become one of the Forgotten Faces in this Bat Country of the Beast and the Harlot.
We Scream to Dear God for his Lost soul to have its own Little Piece of Heaven, completely Unbound from this wild ride we call life.

Snow x Hope - FrozenHe didn't mean for the words to spill out, the venom-coated sound spilling automatically from his mouth, the look of remorse painted in Snow's ice-blue eyes when he had said it.Snow x Hope - Frozen5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I hate you."
Hope would never forget his eyes. The eyes that sparkled with every emotion contained in his well-built body. The eyes that burned with an intense fire of determination whenever he spoke of Serah. Or when he'd win another brutal battle; he'd have a triumphic smile, and his eyes shone brightly, almost like moonlight against the darkness.
But, when Hope told him that he hated him, his eyes lost their fire, lost their shine. They were no longer that vibrant blue; just a dull one, like forgotten embers that had burnt out behind them.
However, he never physically showed how Hope had broke him. Snow still kept his can-do attitude, his signature grin.
All he had said in response was, "I know...I'll always protect you, though."
Maybe he didn't cry. Maybe his words came out smooth, and even, but it didn't
To ConsecrateWhen you first met me,To Consecrate2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
All you could see was a snow white glove
jutting up from the filth I let them bury me in,
digits half curled
wrist arced and carpels tangled
as if I had once strained
to reach up for something more,
but had long since given up...
Your fingertips were my Autumn
as I walked backwards through Winter-
A sleepwalking shadow
spurred on only by sound of a melodic voice
and the faint whispers
of a promise
that I was worth more than ash and dust;
It's been two years since you first coaxed me up from the mire.
I opened my eyes into a hurricane,
reached out to grasp at the hem of your dress
only to come up short
when I found
I was still chest-deep in the mud;
You slipped away between the raindrops,
Leaving me with one last promise:
You can do this."
I put my hands to the ground,
pushed with everything I was-
Pushed till my ribs cracked,
my tendons tore,
till my arms snapped like rotten limbs
and I bled out from my eyes.
But I pushed.

I. Anthro Beauty StandardsIt isn't until you really think about it that you wonder what the standards for fashion and beauty may be in the world of anthros. Considering that humans and anthros are quite significantly different in a numerous amount of ways, it's only natural that their set of standards be different as well.I. Anthro Beauty Standards4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Anthros of one general color are viewed as much more attractive than those of multiple. While it seems that those of many markings and hues might be much more attractive, this isn't so for anthros. Why is it that the single color rule stands? Many aren't quite sure, but it might be because of the fact that high-class members of society are often of simple design. Connect the two together and you see that many would be under the influence that one color equals good.
Does eye color stand under this rule as well? Yes. Those marked with plain eye colors such as blue, green, or amber are seen as normal under the views of society. Pink and purple are frowned upon and taken up as "weird" or "creepy"

invading the lungs of those passing by.
The hot afternoon sun bakes the stone roads black,
light tinged orange.
The man with the gaping eye,
his empty socket a crinkled web of scars.
A blank face looks upon me,
His once strong jaw,
now loose and misshapen from days he wishes he could forget.
He still knows their names,
they have long forgotten his.
His leathery fingers,
gnarled and twisted,
appear like the roots of an ancient oak tree.
Knuckles many times larger than they should be,
are cracked and worn,
weathered by both sun and time.
His calloused feet,
tucked and curled beneath him,
bear the scars and broken bones of times when he forgot,
crushed under foot and hoof.
He has long lost count,
it now hurts too much for him to walk.
His only eye,
it tells the story of his past,
whispering tales about the years of joy he used to have,
days so long gone they became legends to him,
legends he no longer believes in.

Daylight junkies. When you live beneath grey clouds for most of your life it starts to take its toll and you take your highs where you can get them.Passing Ships1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
I was a bundle of nerves, as I always was when it came to you, picking at grass and trying to pretend that the fact you were late was totally cool. Instinct told me differently and I knew as soon as you graced me with your presence that things had changed. It was written all over your face - guilt, guilt, guilt - but I was naive and thought you were just shy.
I can't believe that it's been so long since you cracked me open under star spangled skies. I can't believe it's been almost a decade yet I'm still just as aware of you as I was before. They say that time heals but I still feel the wound, fresh and bleeding, beneath my skin. I still can't resist picking at it

Yes, I hear you: this sounds really kind of lame!

All the rabid fans are running wild;
some have trolled some people while it rained!
I admit it sounds quite cheesy,
but dealing with them's not easy!
And I don't think they'll be listening to me again!
I cannot approve of this show's fanbase,
'cause getting pony-fied always makes me kind of mad!
But I know fans who love the show and are sane;
well, I suppose that proves they're really not all bad...

I groaned. Was I dead? Of course not, because I heard a voice, right? My eyes slowly opened. Something wasn't right. First off, there was no pain on my chest anymore. In fact, my whole body felt different.
"HAY!" I looked at the sound of the voice. It was, no, that couldn't be right. My eyes saw what looked like a small blue horse, with wings?
I tried to rub my eyes. As I brought my hands up to my eyes, I noticed they felt different. I couldn't feel my fingers. My eyes cleared, and I saw hooves?
I screamed, and fainted.
I woke up in a room.
I tried to get out of bed, but I couldn't move very well. That's when I realized my whole body was different. The first thing I saw was my nose and mouth, which had stretched out a little ways.

You flopped over to lay next to your friend, wrapping an arm around her thin waist to pull her closer. Nepeta’s hat had fallen off during your little tumble, exposing her horns completely. They looked like candy corn, nestled in a sea of black licorice.
So you reached over and licked one.

The audience was for all intents and purposes enraptured at the delicate sounds of Buch’s Cello Suite Number One reverberating off the maroon velvet cushion-lined walls and high ceiling of Ponyville’s small music hall. ‘This could not be a more different environment than the last time I stood on this stage,’ Octavia thought. It was true; the Grand Galloping Gala had been an unmitigated disaster for Octavia’s whole ensemble.

A True Lesson In FriendshipTwilight lay in her hospital bed resting her aged eyes going through her memories of the past as she was reminiscing the events of her life. She had come to terms with the fact that her time in this world was soon to be over after her many years within it, with her family, friends and study. She had remembered all the parties, the struggles, the good times and the bad times but most of all she remembers the one pony who had set her entire life in motion; Princess Celestia. It was her who she had to thank the most, for just about everything good that had happened within her life because if she had never sent her to Ponyville she would have never met any of her friends.
