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.

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

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 Luna3 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,
An Accidental FallIt was a cloudy day in the forest and Cadaver was taking a walk to clear his mind from past events. As he was walking he felt a drop of rain hit his nose, so he started to make his way back home. On his way back he was a little sad because he thought he would see his friend Pins, since he hasn't seen her in a while he was a little worried. After walking for a while he came across a fallen tree which meant he was almost home, as he stepped over the tree he looked up to the broken down structure that was his house and saw Pins walk into it. He started to walk faster, not only because of the impending rain but also he wanted to see how Pins was doing. Climbing up the crumbling stares he started to call out.An Accidental Fall3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Love Is In Bloom
Princess Luna stared at the newly married couple who were dancing in the middle of the dance floor, surrounded by other couples swaying to the music. Luna had never felt happier, as this was her first wedding in over a thousand years. For a moment, she felt a pang of guilt, that she might have missed many weddings like this.
But then again, last time she had attended any royal weddings, they weren't this lively. Well, last time they didn't have Pinkie Pie. Last time, she was also a bit uptight. And a bit more tempered. But that was in the past. She felt quite proud that this party was being held, right under her night sky. It gave her the hope that she needed. The hope that everypony actually enjoyed her night!
She had learned from her mistakes, and now she was herse
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 Dash3 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.
Phobia: IntroHe felt the cold steel of the wire cutters in his hooves. Such crude things wire cutters, using them in such a field as specific as medicine seemed wrong to him somehow. The room around him was dark, unusually so. A lone light flickered, on and off, in the middle of the room over the cadaver. The smell of sulphur filled his lungs, making him gag a little. This room made him feel uneasy; its metallic walls offering no safe haven or respite from the task ahead of him. Cutting through the flesh, he thought that would be the hardest part. Alas the steel scalpel, cold to the touch, cut through the mare with ease. Whilst doing this Dogezon had felt out of place, almost like he wasn't himself. He knew that possessing the skills of a Coroner and Doctor would help him bring home the bits, but he knew not if he wanted these skills. To cut open a pony, fiddle with their insides, and treat them with such inhumanity seemed immoral and unjust.Phobia: Intro3 years ago in Profiles More Like This

My Thoughts on RarityAnd now we come to our resident Fashionista, Rarity.My Thoughts on Rarity3 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 Sparkle3 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 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 Applejack3 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

What little clothing she'd prepared for her journey was neatly folded and ready to go in her bag.Mare in the Moon - Missing Scenes3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Despite everything going smoothly, Twilight was still upset. She'd been positive that the Princess would take her message seriously. Instead, it'd been dismissed like a foal claiming to it's mother that there was a monster under the bed. Still, a command from the Princess was not something to be ignored. So, being the dutiful student she was, Twilight was busy preparing her things for the trip to this Ponyville place she'd heard about.
She walked over to her window and looked out. The royal city of Canterlot. The jewel in the crown of the nation of Equestria. Any pony in the world would give everything they had to be able to live in a place like this, and Twilight had been fortunate to be born here herself. It was a centre of learnin
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 Smith3 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.

As the moon rose over Ponyville, a lone pegasus slowly winged her way toward the outskirts of town. A simple fight cap hid her mane, while a saddle served to hide her cutie mark and camouflage her bright yellow coat. She took the time to enjoy her flight; she often relished slow flight and the opportunity to appreciate the scenery, despite her reputation as a speedster. She recalled it had been fall in Ponyville, not spring, the last time she made this trip. With a grimace she again swore to visit more often, no matter what her schedule was like. She shook her head and focused on her landing as her destination came into view.
The simple, two-story wooden house stood alone on a hill near the outskirts of Ponyville. Though originally a home for earth ponies, it had been adapted, rather clumsily, for pegasi by the addition of a second story door and a small landing pad. Though the home was well maintained, the handypo
