PaarthurnaxBy the ancient word wall, at the Throat of the World she sat. And with tears in the corners of her eyes, she whispered silently... "Paarthurnax... I'm back... I brought you a present..." The argonian warrior pulled a small blue object out of her bag. "Look! It's a sapphire... it reminds me of you..." She placed the bright blue gem in the snow. "It's so pure... yet so rough... like you." She grinned, "I never thought those two words would make sense together..." She smiled at the sky, but frowned as she felt the cold wind on her scales.Paarthurnax1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This

TimeThere was a terrible accident last year. It was a tragedy that happened at my school. It was still fresh in everyone’s mind after all this time and today was the anniversary. Twenty three members of the entire class met a tragic end. It was just a routine class trip to the museum. It was raining that day but still the buzz of a free day was in everyone’s minds. Everyone got on the bus, our teacher took count and decided to buddy with the odd student and they were on their way. The museum was a town over and on a steep hill but it wasn’t so bad. The rains weren’t that bad. However, no one would predict how the day was going to end. As the bus driver went on his merry way, having been to the museum several times, it was a cinch to get from point A to point B. Even with the detour sign, he knew how to get to the museum. But what he didn’t plan on was seeing a baby stroller passing down the steep hill in front of the bus.Time4 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

The Parable of the Two ArtisansOnce upon a time there was a travelling merchant. He was an esteemed gentleman who enjoyed many quality things. He knew what he wanted and he knew what they were worth. Today he was searching for ornate ceramic pots, ones that were aesthetically pleasurable as well as structurally sound. He came to a village which, despite its small size, held two artisans. He ordered a pot from each of them. Whoever had come closer to his vision would obtain his permanent service. He would judge their pots in three days.The Parable of the Two Artisans5 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The two artisans had different ways of making their craft. The first artisan had studied for many years, honing his craft. Each of his pots were sturdy and proved their function, yet they weren't much to look at. The second artisan came about his own techniques. He chanced designs and structures that the first artisan dared to try. Some of his pots crumbled under their own weight, but others became the envy of the town. The two artisans didn't like each other, or each other's work. Th

Celestia is The Evil Twin (or the Trollestia theory)
Hypothesis: Out of the twin pony deities, Princess Celestia and Nightmare Moon, Celestia is the evil twin.
-Did Celestia Plan Twilight Sparkle's First Adventure to Further Humiliate Her Sister?
According to the pilot episode of Friendship is Magic 'Mare in the Moon' the widely accepted belief is that two sisters controlled the sun and moon, Celestia and Nightmare Moon respectively. One thousand years previous to the episode, Celestia sealed Nightmare away in the moon itself for the crime of trying to create eternal night.
For some reason this prison would be unlocked in the longest day of the thousandth year.
This indicates right of the bat a number of disturbing things.
First off, the creation of practically the only villain the series has seen to this point is directly due to Celestia herself. Nightmare's spite is derived from her jealousy of her sister, and later on her bitterness can be understood since she's been locke

I really wanna be a writer
I wanna stay awake way too late
With my notebook
And write poetry that no one understands
Call me a hipster
But I wanna drink Earl Grey
In a mug cracked for “aesthetic”
With all of my dreams dripping out the bottom
Onto to the floor of a washed-up cafe scene
And I’m so damned cliche
But I’d die for a Pulitzer, or
To write the verses that Plath wrote
Or to be dissected in an English class
By fourteen-year-old critics
Throw me into that hurricane
That writers are accustomed to
And if I happen to drink myself to death,
At least I’ll write a hell of a good story

Spider loves all her children, and there is very little she wouldn't do in order to protect them. One day every animal was sitting around talking about their own families and how many virtues they have.
“My children are strong, and they can thrash their enemies about!” said Alligator. “Without strength, no one is anyone.”
“My children are full of courage,” shouted Green Lizard. “Without courage, no one is anyone, what use is strength without courage to apply it?”
“My children are resourceful,” said Scrub Jay. “Without resourcefulness, what use is either of those? To smash a wall perhaps, but nothing more.”
Spider skittered by.
“Loyalty,” is all she said.
“What does Spider know about loyalties?” asked Alligator, burbling water.

"Soon." Levy said to herself as she put on her dress. Today was her boyfriend's birthday and she was taking him to dinner. Even though he didn't like eating normal food, she would give him a wonderful dessert. She brushed her hair and kept it down, not using a bandanna to keep her bangs back. They did not obscure her eyes and it made her look cute. She gazed at her appearance in the mirror. Her dress was a beautiful shade of orange, the color that looked best on her. She smiled and put on a light lip gloss, giving her lips a nice sheen. Levy looked to the clock on her bedside table. It was sitting atop a bunch of books, not unusual for Fairy Tail's local bookworm. It was quarter of seven. Their dinner reservations were at seven-o-clock, so it was time to head out. She took hold of her purse and left, a small spring in her step. She completely forgot her coat, which was laid out on her bed.
The two of them had agreed to arriving at the restaurant separately. Levy stood outside t

Applejack: War is Business
The trees were pathetic. Most of them were dead or dying without the care and nourishment they had been receiving for years before. They had even given up on bearing fruit. Only a dozen trees still provided bounty and they were tasteless shells of the gleaming jewels they had once been. Fed only by water and the suffocating smoke of industry, it was a miracle even these trees still stood. This land that had once been a farm of the most delicious apples for miles around had fallen into hard times, only to rise into a different kind of farming. The farming of steel and bronze. The farming of offense and defense. The farming of war machines. That's the kind of farm Sweet Apple Acres was now.
The Barn, which had once been filled with the sounds of content cows, now echoed with the sounds of unwilling metal and the harsh shouts of man. The smell of iron and sweat was always heavy in the air, as though the very walls ha

Rarity: War is Complicated
Everything was still. Slightly hunched over a decorative red sandalwood desk she sat in a chair made of finely polished pink ivory with luxurious crimson velvet cushions. The papers on the desk were neatly stacked to the left while a single book titled "Flying Colors" took its residence on the right. Exactly five inches in front of the book was an antique vase that dated back 586 years. The vase was plain but along its rim was a lovely scene of couples walking through a thriving park. Pure white orchids had nestled in the relic, their clean blooms head high. Lined at the front of the desk's polished surface were a row of five pens, all black but each engraved with a different type of gem, perfectly parallel with the one next to it. Nothing moved. Not even her.
Her arms were propped up on the desk, gloved in pure black, and her hands sat folded together, the lovely slender fingers entwined. Beneath the sandalwood s

Ok, I,m gonna review three Hannibal Lecter movies; which are, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Manhunter. There will be no red dragon or Hannibal Rising, because I didn't see those films.
First is Silence of the Lambs, which came out in 1991. This movie is based on the novel of the same title by Thomas Harris. This is one of the few movies that actually goes by the book and does it very well.
This is a classic mind-fuckery film. Anthony Hopkins plays psychiatrist/cannibal Hannibal Lecter, who is now imprisoned for his crimes. Hopkins entire air time in the film is 16 minutes and in those minutes, he gives a superb performance. He gives a cold and mystifying atmosphere to the character, making his personality magnetic to the audience. Lecter has more class then other cinema serial killers, only eating people that he considers "rude".
Jodie Foster plays Clarice starling, an FBI trainee, who interviews Lecter to get info on another serial killer, Buffalo Bill. Her acting is also great,

Almost an entire millennium has passed by and nothing seems to have changed on this planet.
Everyday used to be the usual, dull routine of ponies living happily and ruling well while all other species are downtrodden or simply ignored as part of some status quo.
And for that, the ponies of Equestria have become the envy of lesser beings.

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
