The fire was growing around him, with every passing second the air grew hotter and harder to breathe, seeing became impossible due to the flames, and the smoke. He could not see, he could not breathe, and the only sound he could hear was the roar of the fire, inching closer and closer.
"Norma? Norma??" Once-ler heard his voice, though he couldn't remember speaking, but it fought through the flames and the smoke. "Norma where are you?" again, his voice trembled and shook, betraying the bravery and strength he was trying to desperately cling to. "Norma p-please "
He was suffocating, the strength in his legs began to weaken and he felt an ache ripple through his lungs but then, when it felt as though his strength was losing him, he heard a noise that fought its way through the fire and smoke.
It was a baby's cry, and even if he had yet to hear the cry of his and Norma's child something told him it was theirs. The cry was familiar, though impossible. The high pitched cry returned the

It took the pair a few weeks before both realized that Norma had trouble seeing some things. Turns out, the little flower lady had problems with her eye sight; she just couldn't see things up close that well and, honestly, Once-ler didn't want her suffering from any kind of problems like that. He told her, one morning, he was heading into town to find her something to fix the problem but it was probably best she stay behind.
Naturally Norma was quite excited to have the run of the cottage to herself so she had saluted the giant man and watched him leave from the window, waving him off with a tiny handkerchief he'd made for her from one of his larger ones. She lowered her hand finally, and sighed sadly. It was strange being without him; ever since she'd come from that flower he found he'd been around, even when she would bathe in her little tub he'd made out of a soup bowl was he within range but always looking away. Which was strange, since the little lady found no real problem with he
The Hero's Dilemma Chapter 2Making his way out into the market and then to the central square of Hyrule Castle Town, Link heaved a heavy sigh as passersby made an obvious effort to keep their distance from him as they hurried off to their myriad destinations. It was impossible for the hero to forget that it had not been two months since he practically had to hide behind his shield to protect himself from the people of the city that would run up and crowd around him, showering him with praise. Although he would return to Castle Town only to convince himself that his toiling against the forces of Ganondorf had not been in vain, at every turn he would be surrounded by seemingly rabid fans, making it feel almost as though they were coming to attack him. The enthralled boys of the town shouting, "It's him!! It's Link!! You're the greatest!" and the infatuated girls screaming, "Aaah!! Link!

"Butterscotch, please, just sit down so I can give you some breakfast" Carrot Cake practically pleaded with the foal, who was currently fighting as hard as she could to remain out of the pink highchair.
Pound and Pumpkin were seated at the table eating slices of cornbread, though they stopped eating for a few moments to watch their father struggle with Pinkie Pie's daughter.
Once again, the yellow earth pony attempted to place Butterscotch into Pumpkin's old high chair, and once again, she resisted. The foal clung to the back of the chair with her front hooves, stretching her hind legs so they pressed against the tray.
Carrot sighed; maybe he should have asked Pinkie how she got Butterscotch to listen before volunteering to watch the twins and the baby while his wife, niece, and employee went to the store to buy supplies for the big party tonight.
Seeing his father was starting to really get upset, Pound Cake decided to help his old man out.
Wayward EncounterThe wind howled, bouncing off the rough bark of trees. Acid rain pelted the land with enough force it stung when it touched you. The storm was getting worse, but she had walked as far as her aching quivering hooves could comfortingly mete out. Her body was just getting drenched to the bone. She was sure to get sick; she was already so weak from her condition.Wayward Encounter4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
So why did I leave? the filly questioned herself. It had been racking inside her head since she stepped foot out of the cottage earlier that night. She was loved and cared for; Fluttershy was attentive and sweet, and a wonderful mother. But that was the thing:
She wasn't used to that.
The filly was so accustomed to loneliness and neglect, even scorn and looks of contempt usually directed to her weak and limp half formed wing, and her shriveled body stature. She wasn't used to kindness, and as such, she wasn't comfortable with it. Fluttershy understood that at least she always said she did, but the young Pegasu

How could Telma even think to tell him that he "shouldn't come back for a while?" She owed him not just her life, but the lives of a lost girl and a dying Zora! Had it not been for him the Bulblins would have burned them all to a crisp out in Hyrule Field, and now he wasn't so much as welcome in the bar?! How could she weigh the piercing, bespectacled glare of Shad, a comment that there's no need for swordsmen in a time of peace, and the frightened stares of a handful of customers over the monumental deeds of the hero of all Hyrule?!The Hero's Dilemma Chapter 17 years ago in Drama More Like This

The clean, cool stream just off the edge of Sweet Apple Acres washed away the troubles of the day. Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo had had an exhausting set of adventures and the refreshing dip was just what they needed. The clear waters washed away the heat and the sweat, and the tree sap, of another long day of play. The Cutie Mark Crusaders had gotten an early start, terrorizing no fewer than a dozen ponies before noon. Their efforts had been unsuccessful, but enjoyable. Scootaloo's stomach rumbled, and her friends' stomachs soon followed. They hadn't eaten the 'food' they had made around lunch time. Silently, the three of them nodded to each other and understood it was time to get something in their bellies.
"Hi girls! What can I get for you? Do you need cookies? Cake? Cupcakes?"

"Pinkie Pie? Are you feeling alright?" questioned the cinnamon-colored mare who had a cutie mark shaped like a cookie that had a bite taken out of it.
Pinkie looked over to the other female pony and smiled, nodding her head.
"Of course I'm alright, Ginger Snap. Why do you ask?" she asked with a grin, her speech slightly garbled due to something being in her mouth.
Ginger Snap's only answer was to look at the three-foot-long strand of strawberry licorice hanging from the pink pony's mouth. Her gaze then wandered to Pinkie's stomach, which was bulging slightly.
Pinkie noticed where Ginger Snap was looking and giggled slightly.
"Yeah, I know. Guess all those goodies I've been eating these past six weeks didn't like being eaten. They're making me fat". Her tone suddenly changed as she shouted, "Oh, those manure-heads, I'm gonna kill them!"
Brown eyes widened as Ginger Snap slowly backed away from the suddenly angry Pinkie Pie.

Celestia wasn't particularly surprised to see Discord pretty much have to be dragged up the hill to the royal gardens, by the butter colored pegasus. She wasn't too fond of the idea of spending any time with the draconequus either, but, well, nopony could say no to Fluttershy, especially when the poor thing just had a scrape with death.
With a pout on his face and his arms crossed like a child, it was a secret to nopony that Discord was not in the best of moods.

She, after all, was the only one that stood up for him. She nursed him back to health from the terrible 'incident' with Twilight Sparkle. The Element of Kindness opened her home to the draconequus whereas a more popular option was to turn him back to stone, tolerating his pranks and his antics, even as he tore her house apart and turned her rabbit companion into a menagerie of hilarious props. The pegasus fed him, cared for him, introduced him to a phobia of feather dusters, and loved him.
Suddenly, the trail up the stairs seemed long and heavy. But he managed to make it to her door. He tapped the knob with a claw, knowing it was locked. Locked to keep all the bad things (i.e

"I told you we should have just gone to the doctors" Rainbow Dash told Twilight as the seven of them (the six ponies, plus Spike) walked through town. They were heading to said doctors, actually.
"Well, you can't really blame her for coming to that conclusion. She doesn't know us that well and our symptoms do match those of pregnancy" the purple unicorn said, hesitating before saying the last word.
It seemed her hesitation was needed, as the moment she said that word, everyone became oddly quiet.
It was a truth that none of them could deny, but no-pony wanted to admit it.
Based solely on the symptoms, the mares could easily believe that they could be pregnant. But, that was impossible. None of them had been with any stallions, ever.
So, there had to be something else wrong with them-some illness that just happened to have the same symptoms as pregnancy.
Though, if they did have some rare illness, they would have a lot more problems to deal w

He knew she could feel it.
There was no word spoken as the two of them were standing across from each other. Karkat had retreated into a dark corner of the lab, the situation, the deaths, the blood, everything being too much for him to take. He had wanted to be alone in his misery and cry. Just cry.

Narrator: Once upon a time in the honorable land of Equestria. There were two regal brothers who ruled together, and created harmony for all the land. To do this, the eldest used his unicorn magic to raise the sun at dawn; the younger brought out the moon to begin the night. Thus, the two brothers' maintained balance for their kingdom and their subjects, all the different types of ponies.
But as time went on, the younger brother became resentful. The ponies relished and played in the day his elder brother brought forth, but shunned and slept through his beautiful night.
One fateful day, the younger alicorn refused to lower the moon to make way for the dawn. The elder brother tried to reason with him, but the bitterness in the young one's heart had transfor

It was one of those days were evil took a break and relaxed, as well as good, too.
The monks had been given that day off, since Jack Spicer had, almost surprisingly, while still predictable, called a truce, saying that he wouldn't attack, even if any Shen Gong Wu appeared.
All of the monks had, though they wouldn't admit it out loud, thought that Spicer had actually thought of a good idea. They all split up to do other things.
Raimundo and Clay played soccer against each other, taking a break now and then. Kimiko was playing her new video game.
Omi had only one idea to spend this glorious day, since there wasn't very many days to spend in that way. He trotted into the yellow grassy field that was far enough away from the temple that No one could really see who was down there (unless one had the Falcon's eye)

Just like me, the stallion thought. The flecks of ember in his eyes were just as dim and listless, streaked with red from his son's late night pranks of rubber spiders in the bed, poorly imitated ghost noises and anything else to drive a father insane and ensure that sleep was an impossible feat.
"You look tired this morning, Dad." The cheerful voice hovering from somewhere above him always brought an onslaught of dreadful shudders and it was no different this morning. "I could have raised the sun for you~"

"Just what I said. Press outside." Norma said as she approached him, setting the suitcase she had brought in with her on the bed. "They must have caught wind you're leaving the hospital so they camped out in hopes of getting an interview with you."
"But why?" he asked, cautiously moving to the window to peek out. There weren't too many of them, but enough to be annoying.
