Grabbing the apples on the tray, the country mare inspected the fruits intently which grew a smirk on the Wonderbolt's face. Although it was not the most romantic scene he had in mind, Soarin enjoyed his time with the orange pony. Not use to seeing her as dolled up as she was in the Grand Galloping Gala a few years ago, he appreciated her wholesome look. Her hat tipped slightly which had her push it back up. Soarin soon found himself face to face with two apples that she held out.
"Bruises," she announced, shaking her head, "Bruises all over these apples. What're they doin' with 'em? Playin' baseball and usin' them as balls?" Applejack looked down timidly and set her food down on the table. "My 'pologies. It's the inner farmer in me."
"No worries," Soarin assured, "Cafeteria food is never that good anyway."
"Gosh, Ah hope Rainbow's gonna be fine," Applejack said. The blue Pegasus had

Dawn was fast approaching in Ponyville, with everypony still asleep... except for one.
In a clearing not far from Sugarcube Corner, Pinkie Pie stood next to a large contraption while leafing through a hard-bound book. Eventually, she found what she was looking for, and closed it, reading the title on its cover once more: "Winged Species of Equestria."
It would serve her well. Then again, most the books she borrowed from Twilight usually did.
After placing the book inside the contraption's side basket, she hopped on its seat, placed her hind hooves on its pedals, and used them for their intended purpose. The contraption's wheels turned, allowing her to roll, as she steered straight ahead with her front hooves, first along a smooth meadow, and then down a speed-yielding hill.
Once she was satisfied with her acceleration, she made sure the path before her was clear, and then moved one front hoof from the vehicle's secondary controls. With a pull of levers, the adjustments she had recently

Rainbow Dash slowly made her way amongst rows of dark tents in the Equestrian encampment. The sun was beginning to set, painting the sky a shade of dark crimson and covering the empty alley in sharp shadows. The only sounds reaching her ears were the crackling of campfires hidden from her view by the tents, no doubt surrounded by silent soldiers who had nothing more to converse about, and the clattering of the armor on her chest meeting her shoulder guards with every step forward. She had been invited by the Princess to attend a meeting of the commanding officers of the four armies in the joined camp. They were to discuss the plans for the coming weeks of the march southwards across the continent.
Dash was alone with her thoughts on her way to the hill in the center of the camp. How had it come to this? Each link in the chain of events leading up to this moment had made sense in its own right, and yet the chain as a whole surpassed her. They were joining other cou

"Excuse me, Princess?"
"Just one moment!" Thunk. Somewhat dazed, Luna pulled her face away from the desk. "Come in!" she said, her horn and muzzle throbbing slightly.
Through the door trotted - oh, what a surprise! Yet another pony levitating a stack of papers about twice the size of the last. "Princess," he said, oblivious to the piercingly-annoyed glare in Luna's eyes, "The request to change the Equestrian national tree from the Holly Oak to the Bay Willow has been withdrawn, so the reinstatement paperwork needs to be filled out."
This late at night? "Alright," replied Luna, already readying her quill, "I think I can-"
"And," he interrupted, "The budget cuts for the School for Gifted Unicorns need to be finalized."
That again?! "Of course." Luna nodded, keeping her voice

C'è stato un tempo in cui lo specchio non mi restituiva sempre lo stesso volto corrucciato, grave, tetro...
C'è stato un tempo in cui questo viso non sembrava scolpito nel marmo da un artista melanconico e disperato intento a portare fuori di sè l'immagine di un uomo stanco, frustato ed invecchiato troppo in fretta.
È sempre stato sottile, giallino e malaticcio, ma c'è stato un tempo in cui un paio di enormi occhi verdi mi mostravano il riflesso di un ragazzo sereno, e gli unici solchi erano quelli delle fossette di un sorriso.
Tempo dell'infanzia, tempo della pienezza...
C'è stato un tempo in cui mi incantavo a guardarla, e pensavo che avremmo avuto una figlia che sarebbe stata bella quanto lei.
C'è stato un tempo in cui avrei potuto avere tutto, e non volevo la morte. Adesso, che non posso più avere nulla, voglio solo una morte che sia più utile di questa vita patetica, che possa redimermi.

Rally the Scytherunner Part OneThe Kriegsman stared off into the distance, white snow flurries stained red by the plastic lenses of his mask. Stamping snow off his boots, he shifted his gun into a more comfortable position. This far from the rest of the outposts, nothing ever bothered them. Inquisitor Rylas requisitioned ten of the Kriegsman assigned to defend Planet M77823. KK4046696 tilted his head, a soft buzz filling his ears. It vaguely reminded him of the hum of Eldar anti-gravity engines. Dismissing the thought, and any more of the xenos, KK4046696 shifted again, trying to will the unusual buzz from his ears. On the other side of the outpost's gate, KK404823 shouted something, and pointed into the distance.Rally the Scytherunner Part One2 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
KK4046696's head swiveled, and he could just barely make out four dark specs headed their way.

It had been two months since GLaDOS had let her go, but she hadn't moved on, despite several terse death threats echoing up the shaft. Whenever she was out of food, more came up in the elevator. It was a fairly peaceful life - her, her cube, and occasionally a crazy A.I.
Then a voice echoed up the shaft - no, wait. That wasn't from the shaft. That was her cube.
"Hello! Uh Hello? Chell?"
Chell stiffened and reached for her portal gun before remembering it wasn't there. She knew that voice. The owner had tried to kill her - and he was in space. Why was her Companion Cube broadcasting him?
"Chell?" The voice sounded worried now.
Chell sighed and knelt down. She knocked on the cube hard, hoping that would be enough to tell Wheatley she could hear him. Then another voice came up from the little shed. "I T

A uniformed officer walks quickly down the steps holding a locked attaché case in his right hand. He is escorted by several SWAT policemen in full armour as they walk towards a waiting armoured van, equipped to resist attempts at robbery or hijacking. Commissioner Gordon RUNS down the steps in front of the building to see them off, accompanied by a burly, uncouth detective in a trench coat and Fedora and chewing a toothpick. This is HARVEY BULLOCK. Two patrol cars wait in front of and behind the armoured van. The officer holding the attaché case gets in first, followed by the SWAT policemen.

"Aizen-sama said you're coming. You've got to be alive but a bit injured shouldn't be a problem" he grinned, lifting up his sword.
Kimoko covered her face with her arms, trying to shield her body from the oncoming attack. The arrancar's arm was sliced off before he could bring his sword down to slice at her. He gripped his bloodied arm, looking at it, then looking around to what might've caused it.

His thin blazer did nothing to shield him from the elements but Shaun was out in it anyway, pulling his collar just a little bit tighter against the brutal wind. No time to get any proper clothes for this horrid weather. At least he had his usual coffee to sustain him. No espresso bars, no shops; he'd had to rely on the good graces of a petrol station for his fix. Of course, it was absolute rubbish, bitter and bland like everything else here.

Disclaimer” The New X-Men do not belong to me. It’s a good thing to. You see Icarus was killed off in the comic. This is my way of bringing him back to life. The facts on Icarus’ death are used in this story, but don’t be surprised if how Icarus is brought back to life in the comic are similar to how Kid Poison brings his back in this story.
