That was the first one.
Number 1 didn't even bother to try blocking them out as she had before, that sometimes made it worse for Number 12, especially when the boss was this angry. It was her fault, she knew, giving that despicable creature the opening he needed to once again cause his most hated underling pain but she couldn't help it. She'd made a promise to her brother and she was going to keep it!
Still, it got to her sometimes just how much their lives had changed since they had been two silly kids, back when they'd been Dexter and Dee Dee, building things and then - mostly in her case - pulling them all down again.
There were times when she looked back on those innocent days and wished deeply to hear the voice of her little brother shouting at her to get out of his lab after again pulling something to pieces. But she couldn't help it, everything he'd made in that place was so cool! He'd made hover crafts and giant robots, given himself superpowers - even

By his best estimate they traveled for four or five hours, though by land, water or air he could not say since the transport did not feel in any way similar to the modes of transportation he was used to. When finally the Mech stopped moving, they were moved at laser point from ship to cell through an echoing, run-down facility. Dexter made no attempt to be subtle as he took in their surroundings. The halls they were moved through were old, industrial, and smelt of burned metal. The windows were dark with grime, but through a few broken panes he caught sight of smoke stacks and conveyors, long abandoned. He could only conclude that they were in a metal refinery or steel mill. It was cold here and night was falling. With a little more information he was sure he could pinpoint their exact location.
Not that such information would be immediately useful, seeing as how his communicator had been taken away from him by their captors. He was glad that was al

I have been a villain all my life. Well considered one anyway. Few knew me and really knew how I thought and felt. I am writing this memoir only to get my thoughts down on paper. Doubtful anyone would care to read it.
I was born into a wealthy family. Wealthy and corrupt full of hate and anger. Yes I was abused and so was Danny, my twin brother. You would know him as Dread Baron. We were taken out and into foster care where we were separated. Our final words to each other: I hate you.
But I digress. I joined a squadron called the Vulture Squadron when I was in my early twenties. Tried constantly to catch some stupid pigeon

"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
Twilight's Last Gleaming"...And it was oatmeal!" Rainbow Dash giggled as she came to the end of her story. Rarity and Applejack broke out into guffaws of laughter as they rolled about the floor of the library. Twilight Sparkle was rather less amused as she sat in the corner, ears flattened and a look of extreme annoyance etched onto her face. She turned slowly to glare at her friends, before returning to her studies.Twilight's Last Gleaming5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The glare obviously hadn't done its job, because moments later, the face of Rainbow Dash bobbed over her shoulder. "Ain't that something Twilight? What do you think she'll do THIS year?"
Twilight coughed loudly, made a show of unsubtly shuffling her papers for as long as possible, and turned to face the perky blue Pegasus. "What will who do when?" she hissed back, eyes narrowed to slants in an attempt at intimidation.
This didn't work either; the only reaction from Rainbow Dash was a roll of the eyes. "You weren't listening to my amazing story at ALL, were you? I mean, I know it wasn't

Every night, she focused on the stars above her head as the monster invaded her room. It's wet tongue and hot breath sickened her almost as much as its touch. She knew what the monster wanted. It was time to let the Stars take her away again, and forget this pain.
Every day in school seemed the same to her. She tried to focus, but the nightly monster attacks just made it so hard to study. In fact, they made her fearful to do anything, really. She just sat in the back of the classroom drawing stars all over her books and papers while the teacher droned on and on.
She had almost resigned herself to the fact she was never going to escape the cycle when she met a purple pony named Twilight Sparkle one Friday after school. This pony was just like her in ever so many ways. She hid from the world, she didn't have friends, and she even liked the stars. The girl and Twilight soon became fast friends, and the girl soon was joining in on everything her new friend Twilight Sparkle experienc

Caramel nervously looked away. "Yeah..." He picked up and put down his own right forehoof. "I, um..." The earth pony with the caramel cream coat and brown mane and tail hopefully looked up again.
Twilight stared straight into his eyes, her expression unreadable. Suddenly, he couldn't take it anymore. "Ienjoyedourdate, gotworkinthemorning, gottagetagoodnight'ssleep, goodnight!"
With that, he galloped away. Twilight sighed in relief, and wiped her brow. The book had said a good-night kiss was optional on the first date, and she had spent the last half of their date too nervous about it to properly converse.
Caramel slowed down after a few blocks, and panted, catching his breath and feeling shameful.

My first yaoi fic for the Powerpuff girls. It's the very popular coupling of AcexSnake.
"Aren't ya freezing out here?"
Snake gave a faint shrug to the question, his shoulders hunched in on his body as he continued to stand there, his back pushing against the rotting wood of the hideout/clubhouse. The wind really wasn't that cold, though he did shiver a few times. "If yer coldsss, whyss are youss out heress?" He asked quietly, turning his head in a motion to stare at his friend.
The answer was a shrug in return, Ace further digging his hands into his pockets as he made his way over. The dirty ground seemed to crunch beneath his feet, a few mice making squeaking sounds as they scampered out of the way to hide among the garbage. "I was gettin' bored inside..." He spoke up, his hand slipping from his pocket and coming up with a cigarette and a rusty lighter that might have been blue at one time, having turned to a dingy silver. "Want one?"
Sleeping Habits, a Romantically Apocalyptic fanficSleeping Habits, a Romantically Apocalyptic fanfic3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
fandom: Romantically Apocalyptic
genre: hurt/comfort, friendship, fluff
characters: mostly Engie
summary:As a light sleeper, Engie has plenty of time to observe and wonder over his crewmates´ sleeping habits. His observations leave him a bit grumpy, but Pilot is already working to find a solution ...
Maybe it is because he could never get enough sleep when Annet was still sending. Maybe it is because even the reality of post apocalyptic life is not as dreadful as his nightmares back then were. When Charles Snippy is asleep, he could as well be dead. The engineer is sure that even a rifle fired next to the sniper could not wake him up. Of course this is beneficial to Captain´s and Pilot´s habit of pulling pranks on Snippy. Gromov clearly remembers the day the tour guide woke up dressed in a pink rabbit costume because Captain wanted him to replace the Easter Bunny, claiming the real one had been abducted by aliens...
Captain, on the other hand, rarely sleeps.

Twilight was surprised when her friends started to use the Elements of Harmony on Discord, believing for sure that it would return Discord to stone and all would be at peace again. But instead of striking Discord, they seemed to stop right in front of the serpent. The Elements were creating something, a powerful presence, a disturbance in Equestria. Every pony was confused as to what was happening.
"Twilight!" Celestia and Luna had both appeared in front of Twilight's friends, watching what was happening.
"What's going on?" Twilight shouted over the sound of the Elements of Harmony.
"I don't know! This never happened before!" Luna shouted back, shielding every pony with her wings from the winds and the sounds.
A voice shouted from the combining forces of friendship, from the aura of the elements itself, "I've spent the last year, integrating myself with the matrixes of the Elements of Harmony, Discord. Tell me that those ponies are degenerates now

The game continued throughout the night and led to a lot of hilariousness that included Hoagie to try and drink ten glasses of milk in a row, but he had to forfeit when the milk came running through his nose (luckily, Abby had ordered him to stay in the kitchen while doing so); Rachel having to catch and hold a spider in the basement for at least 15 seconds, which caused a lot of screams and cries, rather from Kuki than from Rachel.
Further more, Kuki had to reinact her part in the school play they did seven years ago, of which she surprisingly still knew all the lyrics and paces (which made a lot of them suspect she still rehearsed them regularly); Nigel having to confess he still owned a pair of Rainbow Monkey boxers; Wally (based on Kukis earlier dare) having to sing the lyrics of Its so lovey to lovey to lovey-dovey-wovey, over which he made a great fuss, but still managed to do it anyway, with Kukis help.

She had been listening to what Grim said, and she has understood and remembered every single detail of Grim's lecture.

A sly smirk slowly runs across her lips. Her thoughts soon drift, fantasizing what could happen with the scythe in her hands. She imagines herself ripping open the portals to the underworld to gather even more unwitting minions like Grim to do her bidding.

Linebeck the Third counted the rupees he'd gained from his sale of a Stalfos skull. What strange things rich people liked to collect. He liked the play up the old legend that a "Stalfos" had once been a cursed traveler, lost in an ancient wood and forced to turn into a monster. Linebeck didn't believe it for an instant, but it increased the mystique (and therefore value) of what would otherwise just be a musty old piece of bone. "There's a sucker born every day," his grandfather had said. He had lots of clever maxims.
"Stupid is as stupid does" was another one, usually directed at him and his father. Linebeck the First had been a famous adventurer (or so he said; his grandson could never find anybody who remembered him), but Linebeck the Second wanted a more "honest" living.

Emerald Night was alone in her family home; she had convinced her relatives that it would be best if they moved to Hoofington so that the whole shadow bending business could blow over. She watched in sadness as the rain tapped lightly at the windows, hoping that in some way her parents were watching over her despite the distance. She sighed and closed her eyes for a moment. She could not believe what she had just been told moments before; the news frightened her beyond belief. She struggled to keep the tears back as she opened her eyes again and followed the raindrops as they sluggishly snaked over the glass.
