Luna was depressed. Her narrow frame curled upon silken sheets, defiant yet disconcerted. She had not slept a wink since the opening of the letter. Azure Nocturne and Brazen Heart remained at her door as requested, but when she would not eat as usual, her sister was summoned.
Brazen Heart's short reddish tail bobbed as he trotted anxiously through the halls to the Princess' chambers. Two ponies stood outside her door, one light tan colt with burgundy mane, the second a light blue colt with a bubbly deep navy mane. He wanted to know why they were here, but...
"...Widget Dreamer's new apple slicer? Oh I made the most wonderful apple pie with it!" chimed the former, who Blaze remembered was Lucent Acumen. He wore copper rimmed round lensed glasses. Another of Dreamer's designs, no doubt. The two were close friends. The other was Frazzle Spark, a scholar under the tutelage of Fire Wire the Grand.

Ebil Witch Lady's Halloween PartyIt was that time of the year again when the leaves start to change color and the cold winter breezes slowly come in. The month of October seemed to pass by quickly as people got ready for the biggest night of the month: Halloween. Parents prepped their kids and made sure they were dressed up in the costumes of various characters; those young enough to not know better were accompanied by their parents as they took them out into the slightly breezy night.Ebil Witch Lady's Halloween Party2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
This was the perfect time of the year for the infamous trickster, known by few as the Ebil Witch Lady. She loved Halloween just as much as all the children do, though she wasn’t in it for the candy. Halloween was a special time where she could use her magical abilities to cause mischief on all kinds of people. One might think she’s a monster for what she does, but nobody ever remembers who they once were when she’s finished. Of course, she had one condition that she followed to a tee: all of the adorable children were

A Halloween TF story
Angela Myers sat on the couch watching the small TV screen with a bowl of candy next to the table. She could hear the shouts of little children in the neighborhood, announcing their presence at someone's front door. She looked to the bowl before her and was glad she was well stocked, but frankly she was bored with the night. It was Halloween night, but for her the magic of Halloween has already vanished long ago.
The phone then rang and she reached for it next to the couch, twirling a curl in her dark brown hair. "Myers Residence." She said.
"Angie?" A voice asked. Angela then leaned back against the couch. "Oh hey Pam. What's up?"
"Not much, I'm just wondering what you're doing tonight, that's all." Pamela replied.
"Oh I'm just stuck at home handing candy out. What are you doing?" Angie answered, getting up and turning the TV off. She already saw the movie before anyway.
"Oh? I was just going to take my little brother Billy and
Legend of Spyper After many long and fruitless years of research, experimentation, and failure, Medic's gene-splicing experiment was on the verge of being abandoned. Then one fateful night when Medic had collapsed from exhaustion, who better to wander into the laboratory than Intelligent Heavy? With pot on head, he observed the scene before him; the Medic sleeping soundly at his desk, the stacks of research strewn about, and what's this? A large glass cylinder filled with a glowing green goo? Intelligent Heavy stomped over to the clylinder and tapped on the glass; he could just barely make out the silhouette of an unrecognisable figure floating about. Attached to the cylinder was a funnel-type device, used to insert objects and mixtures into the glass cylinder. Needless to say Intelligent Heavy was preplexed; he had never seen such a thing before. What was Medic up to? As the Medic quietly stirred, an idea had struck Intelligent Heavy; he would help the doctor!

He had been accepted to a local 4 year college on the west coast, just 10 miles from home, and had even been awarded a small scholarship his senior year of high school for his work with the community. His first semester was going to be Paul's general courses, then by the spring semester, he could start the real work for his Computer Programming major.

'Where am I?' Rachel thought as she slowly came back into consciousness. The last thing she remembered was Gar lying on her living room floor.
"I see you are awake, my daughter." Rachel tried to move but her hands were bound behind her back.
"What do want from me?"
"To catch up. I never got any replies from the letters I sent you."
"Maybe I didn't want to reply." She said coldly. She strained her hands trying to break free.

Evil in the form of a man;
I cannot say if this is true,
For I knew him only on land.
He visited only once,
The Carolinas grand and great
Compared to me; I still believe
Our meeting was but the cause of fate.
He was a man of many talents-
He knew how to fight, scare, and govern;
All the experienced women waited in line,
Fantasizing about what they could learn
From the master of all, Edward Teach,
A legend of land and king of the sea.
I suppose he did not favor their goods or tone,
For then he looked at me.
His eyes scanned over me, and I was afraid,
Wondering what he could want me for;
I was not as pretty or bold as the others,
But I realized he wanted more than a whore.
He stared longingly and gestured for me;
I took notice and on his lap sat-
He winked and grinned broadly at me
Then placed on my head his pirate hat.
"Lovely girl, why do thee hide?
Ye presence is all I kindly beseech-
Ye make me smile and forget all others-"

Sept 17, 14:15
Apex clouds converged around the azure mountain of ice. The polar ocean rumbled, somewhere beneath, grappling into the iceberg, gnawing away at its foundations.
Grim, fluttering celestial arc released a blinding sphere of light has from the cloudy grasp. Scorching beams of sunlight smashed into the iceberg with relentless fury and the iceberg screeched in fear of their attack as glittering veins of cobalt and silver pulsated upon its surface. The temperature was rising, as the iceberg drifted south, pushed forward by the slashing wind. The iceberg fought against the warm currents till its last breath, but all was hopeless. An unyielding crack started to crawl across its surface, explosions of cold mist whooshing as the iceberg crumbled, expiring away; connecting with the clouds and the ocean.

Asking me to look you in the eye when you talk
Is like asking the child in the wheelchair to walk
You wouldn't do it so don't tell me
To brush my hair or go play PE
You get mad when I don't turn in my homework on time
But time at home isn't yours it's mine
I pay attention in class
I pass every exam
So what persay am I doing wrong?
Why do I get shouted at for staring at walls
In lessons if I'm already ahead of them all
I don't sleep at night and I play with the lights
There are codes on my desk and ladders in my tights
I really don't care but you seem to
You seem to have issues with everything I do
Yesterday was yellow and today is blue
So forgive me today if I can't talk to you
Difficult is as difficult does
Ask me to perform on stage and I could
But ask me to walk down a crowded street
And you'll find I'm way out of my league
Sometimes I'm late because I miss the bus
I did it on purpose the first was too full
I might throw a hissy fit in the middle

Given his line of work, he had never expected to last this long. Bullets, blades, bombs - and he had weathered them all. Though of course, he hadn't been alone in that department.
The German doctor reached a black-gloved hand up and wiped a streak of grey hair from his forehead as the steady stream of water soaked through his overcoat, his spectacles slipping slightly on his aged nose.
There was total silence between the two of them as they stared at the ground, each lost in their own thoughts.
Decades had passed since ths cease-fire had been called between Red and Blu, and now it seemed to the retired Sniper that his past had almost completely crumbled into dust.

Warden of the Everfree ForestPonyville was a quiet town located in the center of Equestria. Founded and mainly inhabited by earth ponies, all three pony species and even non-ponies have found a peaceful and worry-free environment to call home. Ponies went about their lives without giving a second thought to the less-friendly fauna that co-inhabit their magical principality. However, not all regions of Equestria can boast such security.Warden of the Everfree Forest4 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Lying just to the west of Ponyville was the dark and mysterious Everfree Forest. Once home to a temple dedicated to the Regal Sisters, the Everfree Forest was now completely overrun by nature. This feared woodland was home to a great variety of horrible creatures from cockatrices to manticores to the legendary Ursa Major, a terrifying translucent bear-like creature the size of Ponyville itself. Unlike the rest of Equestria, which was governed by the laws of magic, the Everfree Forest was free of such mystical manipulation and grew on its own without the tender guidance of ponies. It

Maybe they don't say it outright, but I can tell by the way they keep looking at me as they pass me by. 'It's your responsibility', their eyes keep telling me, 'and if you don't end it it ain't never gonna end.'
How dare they. How dare they put this all on my shoulders, not just my team, but his team as well.
But it's up to me to end it, says popular opinion. They tell me these kind of things and they wonder why I go through Scrumpy like water. If they had this kind of pressure on them, I'd like to see any of those lads stay sober.

The best he can do is this cruel stalemate, where nobody's gaining any ground, there ain't no end, just more suffering. But he won't stop.

I hold him close to me. Under the bandaging, my chest hurts. I don't need stitches but I would've if the wound went much deeper. It probably wouldn't hurt, though but I don't want to. I'd have to answer questions then, and people wouldn't understand. They'd try to take him away.
