Two seasons have come and gone now, each one filled with beautiful animation and stunning dialogue. Most importantly both seasons brought new found inspiration and insightful views into our daily lives.
I wish not to take up too much of your time; I wish only to say a few things on my own behalf to everypony out there who wishes to hear them.
Although it is tempting to bring up the cliché that perhaps nopony else feels the same way as I do, I cannot for I know that there are many others with the same views as mine; others whose lives have been touched by these candy-colored ponies and their spectacular adventures, who have also felt a newfound sort of warmth inside from their voices and their ideals. This fandom is truly magical. Not once since I have become a brony have I been denigrated by another member of the pony community. Instead I have found more friends than I could have ever imagined.
Others may one day ask "just who are the bronies?" Note I said "are" and not "were" bec

Artie liked meeting both of your friends. He even said they could stay with you guys!
You nodded cheerily.
^"Hey _____, ask him for another one."
-"Another what?" You tilted your head.

You jumped off of the bed and walked into the kitchen.
-"Art- tee- ee!" You said in a sing song way. He was mixing batter in a bowl.
-"What is it, love?"
-"Can I please have another cupcake?"
-"You're so silly! I made you some already!" Artie turned to face you with his big grin.

Don't wanna hail to Princess Celestia
And can you tell me just what exactly is it
That makes a grown man like a show for little kids?
Well, I just can't stand all of these bronies
Hearin' them argue about who's best pony
Do any of them have a real life?
Tell you the truth, it all makes me feel sick
How they keep saying "Friendship is Magic"
And defending Fluttershy like she's their wife
Well, they finally convinced me to watch some
I'll admit I think I may have jumped the gun
It's not quite as bad as I thought it was
But that realization's now makin' me nervous
'Cuz I refuse to become a brony
But now I love a show about ponies
I just hope no one I know finds out
Sure, the show's sappy morals are mushy
But I love my Twilight Sparkle plushy
Oh God, I'm one of them now
Now I know for sure I'm infected
Can't get "Winter Wrap-Up" out of my head
And even though it seems pretty absurd
I've officially joined the herd

Ta tu alainnTeresa liked being in charge. She liked knowing what was going on and how to deal with it. Her biggest weakness, she would hardly even admit to herself, was her fear of instability. Not knowing what was happening, not knowing how to deal with it or just plain not knowing, was chaos personified in her mind.Ta tu alainn5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She prided herself on knowing all that she could about her teammates. She knew their strengths, their weakness, what they liked doing and what they hated. There were few things they did that could throw her off or surprise her in the least, and that was part of the reason she loved them. They were stable, they were reliable, they were predictable.
Until one fateful night that overturned this calm reserve of her family.
The neighborhood they were currently patrolling was old and run down, the streetlights flickering and stoops sloping with age and exhaustion. From chipping doors and bending pipes hung the occasional flag of orange, white and green, left over nationalism from settlers

There was a knock on the door. "Uh, are you okay, Megan?"
He was probably the last person she needed to see right then and there. "Go away, Tony!" she hissed. He was only eleven, his birthday still yet to come that year. The last to age up a year. He wouldn't understand.
Megan was thirteen then. So was Marc, but she was born two minutes before him and, hence, she was older.
There was sigh and a pause. "I don't like Kale, either," he said.
"Shut up! I don't need to hear his name!" she cried, throwing a book at the door in hopes he would just leave. But, being the youngest meant he had to be so stubborn to get people to listen to him.
"C'mon, Megan. He's just a boy. He probably doesn't see you the same way I see you." On that note, he opened her bedroom door and walked in.

The meeting was for a simple question: how can we make things better?
"Discuss it amongst yourself and I'll be back in twenty," Director Fury told the room before closing the door behind him.
The room went silent except for the cogs you thought you heard turning in everyone's head. "I say not making meetings this early."
"I agree, it should be closer to night with alcohol and strippers." Everyone rolled their eyes at Tony.
"He could always bring us some donuts or something." You would have expected that from Thor, not Steve.
"Maybe shock collars for stupid questions or ideas," Natasha said, earning her looks from around the room.
Barton piped up, "kinky. I'll remember that for later."

There was a world. A world inhabited entirely by llamas, and llamas alone. There they lived happily, with Llamas and Albinos, populating the continent, Ninjas, Spartans, and Supers keeping the peace. The Wizards kept on making new discoveries to improve life, and the Goldens kept up the faith of religion with their high link to the unknown powers. The Fancys and Kings took political positions to lead the world to and everlasting era of tranquility and peace.
But that peace would not last
A band of Wizards and Goldens did an experiment to try to contact the unknown powers of the universe. Instead, they accidentally unleashed a great evil on the planet.

When she was a babe, he had a gift for her. She cooed and gurgled and waved her tiny little arms and kicked her tiny little legs, reaching happily for the gift. He watched her giggled at him with his toothy grin and skeletal fingers as he lowered the gift to her, but as she touched his bony wrist, he hesitated and pulled back gently. He pocketed the gift and shook his ivory white finger at her teasingly and said:
“No, you are not ready.”
When she was 5 years old, she was climbing an apple tree when she saw him. He watched her from below as she climbed higher and higher, occasionally grinning down at him as if challenging him to climb up with him to catch her. She stepped on the wrong branch and it sent her tumbling down to the ground. Laying on the floor with her golden hair almost decoratively spread across the grass, she opened her eyes and saw him looking down at her with those hollow eyes and toothy grin and she smiled back, takin

Why else would he glower at me peevishly every time we make eye contact?
Why else would he only reply in grunts and unintelligible mumbles whenever I talk to him?
But sometimes, Berwald will show sporadic acts of kindness, and those capricious deeds will have me wishing with every fiber of my being that I could tell him, right then and there, that I love him.
I recall the night we ran away from Matthias together, and how he had covered me with his blanket until he was sure that I was warm.
I flashback to the day where he had arbitrarily called me his 'wife,' even though I'm sure that he had only been joking. I had blushed SOOOO badly
Then I remember looking up into his face after all of those special moments, and how he would always be cantankerously scowling down at my figure, which is tiny, compared to his towering height.
Yep, he hates me, doesn't he?
I sigh morosely. Berwald, if only you knew

He touched a few of the bricks and they vanished in a whirl, allowing bright light to pour over the floor. You blinked at the brightness. "So you can play with your own body. That will not get you anywhere."

that remains tucked away,
saved for special occasions
when it will be seen.
It is almost always midnight
black, or blood red, and
covered in lace, or made
of mesh, soft and delicate
as the skin it covers.
Such things should be hidden,
lest the owner be labeled
as something other than "lady."
It has a power we can't
control, one that transforms
denim and cotton clad
ragdolls into Barbies,
perfectly proportioned plastic,
smooth and flawless hourglasses
that turn on command.
We groan and flinch
as satin strings pull us
apart and together,
and heartstrings are plucked
as we scrutinize our reflection;
we are not diamonds
with perfect exteriors--
we are fractured, as we
realize hourglasses can be exchanged
for quartz watches that are
faster, more convenient,
incapable of failure
