They do not make a sound,
Yet they speak volumes.
They can tell you anything,
You just have to listen close enough.
If you do not however,
Then secrets will remain secret,
And no one will ever know.
Kill shotKill shot4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Like a ghost in the brush
My voice in a hush
I crawl in the dirt
And disregard the hurt
All day I lay
With nothing to say
I keep still
Even if I feel ill
So now I wait
The sun I hate
I look down my sight
And adjust for the height
I am here for one thing
And once you hear the ring
My barrel will be hot
`Cause I just got my kill shot
A Message from HomeHave you heard of me? Most people haven't, not anymore.A Message from Home4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
People don't care about me, nowadays. Well, I don't care about them either.
I see everything.
I hear everything.
I see you.
But I don't care anymore.
I see you and I hear you and I do not speak.
You see me but you don't see me and that's why you do speak.
I don't care about you. I don't care about them. I don't care about anything anymore.
Oh, wait. I care about me.
I am everything. More precisely, I am the center of everything.
I birthed you once. One of you.
I will kill you someday. All of you.
You are destroying me. Some of you.
And so I will destroy you. All of you.
I don't care about you, but I care about me, and you don't.
You rage and destroy and burn me, you dirty and pollute everything around me. I don't even have to do anything.
Wait just a little bit, and you will destroy yourselves.
But I'm not patient enough to wait that long.
run, run, as fast as you can.
you can't run away, not if you're human.

Cadaver`s Tale: The First Glimpse of Kindness Teaser
"Oooh," said the curious white mare, "What's in here?"
As the white mare with a golden mane with deep blue eyes walked up to the basket covered in a blanket she grew all the more curious. She paused in mid step as something under the blanket moved. At that, she quickly walked up to the basket and pulled the blanket off.
"Oh dear oh dear oh dear," she said to herself, not noticing the wings on the baby foal, "Who would such a horrible thing?"
She started to take the baby out of the basket, taking off the blindfold and the other bindings. When she did, that's when she saw the wings flutter a little. Now she understood why.
"Oh my," said in a sad tone, "Even if he is different it is still no reason to do this, and to a foal none the less."
When she finished taking off all the bindings the foal looked up at the white mare; a scared look on its face. Right then she hugged him and decided that she was go

My Thoughts on Celestia and LunaAnd so we come to the two regal sisters themselves. Celestia and Luna, the Princesses of My Little Pony. Despite not being in the show so much, the little that these two characters have done is so big, both on and off screen, that I've come up with tons to write about, for better or for worse.My Thoughts on Celestia and Luna4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Let me start by addressing a particular complaint I came across when I first started watching the show. That issue is the fact that they're both Princesses in a land where no other form of royalty seems to exist. It was argued that because there are no older monarchs above them, like a king or something, that they should be called Queens instead of Princesses.
Well firstly, let me say right now that it is not unusual or unheard of for countries to be ruled by princes and princesses rather than kings or queens. These types of nations are known as principalities and while I'm not familiar with any such nations that exist at the moment, I do know that they were at one point fairly common in Europe,

"Still as adamant about the cosmos as ever, are we, Twilight?"
"Of course. You remember when I was a filly; all the mornings you found me passed out underneath the castle's main telescope, using my sketchbook of poorly-drawn constellations as a pillow."
"Or all of the nights I caught you in the process of attempting to sneak into the observatory. At the time, your constant habit of staying up until the crack of dawn became somewhat infamous within the guards. And, if truth be told, I may or may not have allowed you get away with it once or twice."

My Thoughts on Rainbow DashMuch like with Pinkie Pie and Rarity, my opinion on Rainbow Dash, at least during the early episodes, was influenced by my initial exposure to her. When she frist came on screen I gained an opinion of her as being "the token tomboy", which was something which bothered me at first as we already seemed to have a character to fit that role with Applejack. So when Rainbow showed up my first reaction was, "don't we have one of these already?"My Thoughts on Rainbow Dash4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But much like the others my perception of her changed greatly overtime. This was not just a typical tomboy character. There were many aspects of her that broke out of that mould. Though unlike the others, the degree to which she broke out of her stereotype seemed less obvious.
Not only that, but much like Rarity and Pinkie Pie, I didn't really like her that much when I first started watching the show. However, unlike those other two, and I know this is going to earn me many MANY haters, I haven't grown to like Rainbow as much as I have with the others.
My Thoughts on RarityAnd now we come to our resident Fashionista, Rarity.My Thoughts on Rarity4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
As you may remember from my previous entry, Rarity was another character I had issue with when I first started watching the show. However, my reasons for disliking her at the start were very different from the reasons I disliked Pinkie. In fact, looking back on the matter, my reasons for being against her seem almost petty, and something I'm no proud of.
You see, when I first started watching this show, I was assured that it wasn't the stereotypically girly show that it was back in the 80's. That all the tea parties, dresses and makeovers that characterised female-aimed cartoons had been exorcised completely in favour of something more gender-neutral and less likely to alienate one group or the other.
So with that mindset, I started watching. As you can imagine, when I first laid eyes on Rarity, heard her speak, saw what she was about at the start, I felt betrayed. This was exactly the kind of character I'd been told would not be in
My Thoughts on Twilight SparkleThroughout my life I've had a fairly difficult relationship with regard to main characters in kid's shows. In my experience they've effectively been boiled down to one of three options. Either their so perfect and so unbelievably good that it's hard to get invested in them as character, so flawed that they cross the line into flat-out unlikeable, or in many cases simply so bland and boring that I have no real connection or interest in them whatsoever.My Thoughts on Twilight Sparkle4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I need you all to understand this history I've had with main characters so you understand how important it is when I say what I'm about to say.
Because in my opinion, Twilight Sparkle is without a doubt, one of the greatest main characters ever put in a kid's show. No, I'm not joking. This is the first time in a very long time that I've come across a main character that's managed to find that very elusive sweet spot in terms of their general characteristics. She's not unrealistically good and wholesome, she has flaws but never so many tha
My Thoughts on SpikeMuch like my chequered history with main characters, I've also had various issues with character belonging to groups other than those targeted as a show's intended audience. By this I mean that if a show is meant to be watched by a certain group of people , and then included a character which does not belong to that specific group, their portrayal has often been hit-and-miss in terms of their quality.My Thoughts on Spike4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Take this show for example. Despite it unexpected male audient it remains at it's heart a show intended to be watched by young girls. As such any male character shown in this series would have always had me worried. Whenever I've glanced at shows meant for this demographic in the past, the portrayal of male character has been either as incompetent and foolish who can't do anything right, or outright brutish in a manner that makes all boys/men out to be bullies.
Even though this is the start of the "supporting characters" analyses I'll be doing, technically Spike the baby dragon is officia
My Thoughts on FluttershyAnd here my life really is on the line.My Thoughts on Fluttershy4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Yep, it's time to talk about Fluttershy. And I mean what I said, Fluttershy has, over the course of her time in this show, gained such a devoted following that it's become akin to heresy in this fandom to say anything negative about her. In fact so fierce have fans become in their protectiveness of this character that any characters in the show itself who've said or done anything to upset or harm her in any way have instantly become demonized.
Now, as a confession, I myself have participated in such behaviour myself during my time as a member of this fandom, so I understand completely where people are coming from. When we see Fluttershy, observe her mannerisms, her way of speaking, it creates an immediate impact on us. When we look at her we see a shy, sweet, innocent and vulnerable creature who needs protecting. In many ways it's like some sort of parental instinct, at least how I see it. A need to defend those we feel cannot defend themselves.
My Thoughts on ApplejackLet me get something out of the way right now. I liked Applejack when I first saw her in the first episode. This is something that needs to me made very clear because, under normal circumstances, I'm not a particular big fan of stereotype characters. When I say that Applejack is a stereotype, what I mean is that she very much seemed to embody many of the traits that people have of those in the Southern United States. The accent, the farm, the big family, the hat. If it wasn't for Applejack's more redeeming qualities I'd have probably dismissed her.My Thoughts on Applejack4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
But like I said, Applejack has redeeming qualities to her. Many in fact that, like with Fluttershy, far outweigh any of the negative things I'm about to say about her in this essay.
First, let me talk about some of her good points. Being a person who works frequently in a farm environment, she is, naturally, a very hard worker. I've always had an appreciation for the kinds of people who do this kind of work, especially when they put so much
My Thoughts on the Cutie Mark CrusadersI have written a fair deal about these characters whenever I did reviews on episodes that focused on them. Remembering what I wrote about them I find it easy to assume that many will come away from those reviews with the distinct impression that I do not like these characters at all. This is, in fact, a false assumption. I do not dislike or hate the Cutie Mark Crusaders. However, that does not mean that I do not occasionally find things about their characters that bother, because I do. But much like Spike, they've never done anything to make me dread their appearances.My Thoughts on the Cutie Mark Crusaders4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Which is already a point in their favour I can tell you. Typically, whenever I've been introduced to kid characters in cartoons, especially very young kid characters, they've been incredibly difficult for me to like. So many times in other shows it seems like they've been designed with the express purpose of being "annoying for the sake of it". So at the very least I can say that the CMC have never made me feel this way

That we are parts of a great crowd, you and I
My brothers and sisters you are, this I do not lie
And let it forever be known as a fact so true

Have you always known that what you do is divine?
The horns and the wings you draw are so beautifully created
And these manes are designed with a grace that need not be stated
When I look at your works, warm feelings ensure

What horse-like figure has served as your muse?
Your tales and stories have always made my eyes shine
And your Equestrian poetry is nothing less than sublime
Your literature is great, but these words have meaning too
Oh, how I love you; Oh, how I love you
To my peerless sculptors, how can this be?

My Thoughts on Big Mac and Granny SmithAs I've mentioned in other writing, it seems that the subject of family is one very close to the hearts of the show's writers. As such the families of our main characters, at least their siblings, make frequent appearances. While they may not have as much of an impact on the show, it's clear that they're still important to our characters. I also said that out of all of the main cast, Applejack seems to focus the most on the importance of family. Because of this, we will now be looking at the members o her family that I have yet to speak about, her older brother, Big Macintosh, and Granny Smith her grandmother.My Thoughts on Big Mac and Granny Smith4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
For a very long time, both of these characters seemed to me to be yet another pair of ponies that would show up in the background from time to time and yet contribute nothing to either the characters or the story. But, as time went on they started to grow new dimensions and show a level of depth that I hadn't seen coming. Whilst I can't say that their development has been as deep
