The sun was setting. Another night was about to begin.
A purple, regal-looking pegacorn gazed up into the darkening sky, checking the feel of the world around her. It would be quiet, by the look of things. Quiet, starry, peaceful. There were but two things missing: the moon, and the right music.
Princess Luna looked back down again, gazing over a small band of assorted ponies that now surrounded her. Some carried a few woodwind instruments; others, strings; still others, percussion. A few performed basic vocal exercises, honing their collective tones. The princess gave a faint smile. Yes, everything was proceeding as planned. Tonight would be a fine performance to honor the rising of the moon.
"Hello, Princess Luna! Sorry I'm late. I was so busy reading I lost track of the time!" a unicorn with a dark purple coat and mane trotted up to her, a glow surrounding both her horn and a wooden pan flute.
"..." Luna frowned. She honestly disliked her elder sister's
RegicideThe goddess of the sun sat idly munching her royal dinner at the head of an unnecessarily long dining table. Laid out before her were silver plates decorated with foodstuffs hailing from the furthest and most exotic corners of Equestria. Celestia liked the royal dining hall, although it was a little opulent for her tastes. Vast as it was, with baroque paintings and carvings decorating the walls as well as the supporting pillars which stood on either side of the long, rectangular table. A set of golden armored pegasi flanked each of the doorways and they blended in humorously with the decorations. So unmoving, one might easily mistake them for statues.Regicide4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

February 10, 2151 C.E.
The sky above Tiger Hills, Virginia was only beginning to show the light of day coming in from the east, which was typical of winter. While the light from the sun slowly ate away at the darkness, several stars shone brightly in the night sky, including Rigel, Sirius, Procyon, and others. A very soft winter breeze blew in an easterly direction, picking up a few strands of powdery snow and dead leaves yet to be raked up by senior citizens.

DeadlineDeadlines. Oh, how Langston Parker hated deadlines. They always seemed to crawl toward him at first, picking their way leisurely through weeks of plotting and typing and revising and retyping; but then they suddenly screamed, "BOO!" and leaped out from behind his computer monitor to torment him through the final weeks leading up to publication. His editors loved setting them. He was all too adept at breaking them.Deadline8 years ago in Horror More Like This
He leaned forward in his computer chair, squinting at the screen through eyes clouded from lack of sleep. Four empty mugs stood at easy reach around him, resting on stacks of discarded manuscript. Stacks that were growing taller with every passing hour when they should have been shrinking – the Day of Reckoning was a mere seventy-two hours away, and he still had fourteen chapters to write.
The bags under his eyes twitched, as though encouraging the lids above them to close. Parker blinked them into submission and rested his fingers on the keyboard once more. They spit out a s

Kaidan fought to keep from pinching the bridge of his nose as Lilith called out to him. Her attempts at flirting had become more pronounced lately and she hadn't seemed to understand the gentle, yet subtle ways he'd been trying to show his disinterest. He didn't want to come right out and tell her to stop, for one reason and one reason only - he had too few allies on this colony and couldn't afford to alienate even one of them, even if she had become more of a pain in his backside the past month.
"Yes, Lilith?" he replied, his gaze focused on the calibrations for the GARDIAN in front of him.
"Still haven't figured it out?" she asked.
"I don't know what's wrong! I've gone over every single piece of code, every targeting parameter, and nothing is out of order. I just don't understand why it isn't working!" he sighed, frustration evident in his tone.

Sunset - Chapter 3: Moonrise Life quickly returned to normal in the small town of Ponyville... well, as normal as things could get. Over the course of the past four weeks, the town had experienced a fire and another baking mishap that somehow made the Baked Bads Incident seem like a mild case of the flu in comparison. In fact, the town still held the lingering smell from the... unpleasantness. It made the orange pony breathe a sigh of relief that she didn't live in the town proper, or that her stubborn pride hadn't caused the worst case of food poisoning in town history anymore.Sunset - Chapter 3: Moonrise4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

“It’s not going to until another hour my lady.” You let out a tired sigh.
You lean your head against the wall of the helicopter thinking about what you and Ryuga were talking about while on the phone. You felt so happy that Ryuga chose you as his partner that you were screaming on the inside but just smiling and blushing on the outside. Your eyes soon close and you fell into a small slumber.

My life was a rather below average one; at my seventeen years of existence, I had little to no abilities, and the only thing I stood out in was not being good at anything, and it seemed I would stay that way.
Until I found that shop.
I was walking down the street, mad about everything; mad at the fact that I saw the girl I liked kissing behind the school with some jock I've never met; mad about the fact I had just gotten my grades, and as always, they had been far bellow the red; mad about my lack of ability on any sport; mad about my bad luck; bad about my foolishness; so in short, mad about my life.
Then, I saw that strange blue door.

He's seen a lot of things. He's heard of a lot of things.
Things that you wouldn't believe.
He'd be lying if he said that he hasn't been involved in some strange stuff over the years; not many people in their right minds try to get their hands on holy relics, mermaid's hair, hemlock, or human blood on a regular basis, and he knows by now from experience, not that you really want to know much more than that that not many normal people are interested in selling them, either. No, in order to get what his clients desire he's had to go to some pretty odd places, meet some pretty odd people, and learn some pretty odd facts. It's all paid off, in the end, and it's the main reason or one of them, really for why he is where he is now. It's just another aspect of the job to him, like his car or the cardboard boxes that always fill the back of it, like bills and rent and all the little mundane things that make up his otherwise unusual life.

The letter in the mail made Brandon Keene curse under his breath. He couched and flipped through the forms he'd been sent.
Two weeks before, he'd applied for an individual health insurance plan for the first time since moving out on his own. The paperwork was a headache and he'd been told to hope for no reply from the company.
With his heart racing, he wondered how much higher they'd set his deductible and whether his premiums had been given a bump. But as he scanned, there were no numbers and figures anywhere. He turned the papers over and over.
Eventually, his eyes settled on the all-important line, "The potentially insured's application is contingent on a routine examination and special adjustment by a local doctor from the following list "
Brandon read carefully. With a sigh, he noted the doctor with the closest address. On his cell phone, he made an appointment for the next day.
Once there, and with letter and papers in hand, he sighed and

The mist laid close, the horizon was hidden behind the thick walls of white. Just a few meters of the grass of the roadside and the road itself could be seen before it would disappear into the whiteness surrounding her.
The road took a turn and she could see the sign with the city name and arrow, telling she was only two km from home. It felt like she had been doing this walkway forever, the mist giving the idea of being in the middle of nowhere. But she would be home soon, she knew that. The mist just made a very good illusion.
A car appeared in the mist, first the lights could be seen as glowing, round eyes, then the shadow of the car itself making it look like some kind of weird creature was heading towards her before it came out of the mist and disclosed its true form in metal as it went past her. It was dark blue. She noticed a dog barking its head off from the back of the car, but couldnt tell if it was because of her be

Just another routine mission, stopping Dr. Robotnik from taking over the world. Sonic had done this many times before, so it was nothing new to him. Sure, he faced a few new perils each time, but they were all overcome in short time with as much ease as before. He blasted through hallways and around corners, smashing through any robots that got in his way, twisted metal flying as it was severed from falling bodies of steel.
Dr. Ivo Robotnik sat in his main control room, growling to himself as he watched the destruction through the security cameras. Sonic smashed up a few of the cameras themselves, too, just to spite his archenemy. Watching a large digital map, he tracked the hedgehog's fast movements through his base, shaking his head as Sonic came

Continuing down the hallway, the brunette made her way toward the room where she knew she'd find Liara, having set up another meeting to pick up extra supplies that might hopefully assist in the repair of the Normandy after their crash landing on the Collector Base a couple of weeks prior.Across the Sea4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Hey, you're a tough guy. Now stop fidgeting."
In the living room of the EP House, everyone was watching the current doctoring of Gideon's broken arm by Claris, who had arrived beforehand just as Brünhilde said. Azalea stood next to the collapsible table Gideon was laying on belly-down. She gazed at him nonstop as Claris stood on the other end of the cushioned table maneuvering Gideon's arm. Gideon grunted.
"Azalea," he said. "I'm sure there is something else you can be doing to occupy yourself right now."
"But Azalea wants to see you get better," Azalea said with a smile. "Maybe if Claris fixes your arm, Azalea will see a smile on your face."

Ghost stories on the road were not a new thing to him. In every pub and every inn on his many travels he could find someone to tell horror stories about ghosts and ghouls, fairies and trolls. He never asked for the stories or warnings about which roads were hunted, it was just part of the travel when meeting new people before continuing on his way.
It wasnt that he didnt believe in ghosts and the supernatural, he just believed himself to be more logical and brave than most that would automatically shiver in cold sweat at any mention of haunting spirits and trolls. He had heard and seen much in his life and never met anything as dangerous and mysterious as in the story tellers tales.

Information flowed, went and came, was hidden and protected, given and spread. It was everywhere; in books, in stories, in ink or in screens, pen drives, libraries, legends, myths, movies, series, comics... everyone knew something someone else didn't.
And as time passed by, the spread and speed in which one could acquire information increased; more and more it became easy to access someone else's knowledge; from paper, through the imprint, to the internet and the flux system, one after the other, the globalization of information became absolute.
That is, until the Great Vortex incident.

Mages are something that existed during ancient times. With the coming of science and technology, magic eventually became a lost art. It lives on in modern times, in small doses.
Mages use belts or other similar means of transformation to become costumed warriors which today would be known as superheroes. Varying slightly from user to user, their suits, made of magical properties, allow for swift mobility while providing projection to the user and heightening their senses.
They use magic spells in the form of rings which contain
