At the time I thought it was a kinda neat sound - might make for a good sample to use in my next mix. Something new. Something original. Something to make the next crowd's heads turn. So I go follow it, right? And the sound picks up further as I sea

MY LITTLE PONY: EYES AND HOURGLASSES
Chapter II: "The Welcome Wagon Comes to Town"
Written by Diane N. Tran
For the first time in her mail-mare career, the pegasus named Derpy Hooves was late in a delivery. That delivery consisted of one single, solitary letter to be dropped off at the very last residence of her rounds, Ponyville's Old Clock Tower. When she arrived at the building, she was, of course, as punctual as ever, but the mail-box was still missing from the lawn and she didn't have the courage to knock on the door again.
Dressed in her saddlebags, pacing back and forth, she was at a loss of what to do at the moment, so she paced some more. If she left it on the doorstep, the wind could blow it away. If she slipped it underneath the doormat, it might not be seen. Then a thought came to her, perhaps she could squeeze the letter between the cracks of the door.
Placing the letter between he

I remember all the good times we had
But now you say you love me
It makes me feel so glad.
Your fiery eye's they excite me
Your rainbow mane delights me.
To hide this feeling is becoming a chore
Each day I love you more and more.
I want you here in my arms
Where I can protect you from harm.
My love for you shall forever last
Oh how I adore you Rainbow Dash!

Chapter Three: Bonding
The dragon returned shortly after putting his medical supplies away, ambling into the kitchenette to wash his hands. As the mixture of warm water and soap coated his hands, splashing away any traces of bodily fluids, he turned his head into the direction of the yellow pegasus, offering her a gregarious grin. The mare half-turned her head away from him shyly. Finding the pony's bashfulness positively adorable, the reptile couldn't help but give a soft chuckle. After drying off his hands, he grabbed a ladle and a bowl from the overhead cabinet--though it wasn't much of an "overhead" cabinet considering the dragon's stature--and proceeded to fill it. After all, the home was built with ponies in mind.
He directed himself towards Fluttershy, taking great care to not spill the chowder as it swished about in the bowl with every movement he made. He slowly knelt in front of her and blew into the bowl just as he had done for the baby griffon.

When the Autumn Leaves
The wind brings signs of colder mornings,
Prolonging dusk surpasses the light,
Gone are those days:
Summertime of warmth and laughing,
Summer's time to slumber now
(For) some time
Reaped the harvest, filled the stocks,
Found the scarves and boots from loft,
Gathered firewood to keep our hearths lit and lively.
You can see how the time of green is gone:
Its course is old and fading, losing its vividness.
Months of winter holding near,
We are watching the autumn leaves
Glowing bright in their gilded colors.
Season of work after the summer growth:
Memories of the vivid days still in mind.
Season of change before the winter rest:
Painted world before the snow-white veil.

Hey, you're finally here! Where are you, you ask? This is your lucid dream state. I'm here to talk to you about something important. It basically boils down to life. Mainly the three stages of life. There's the "filly," the "adult," and the "over the hill." Now most ponies believe that the "Adult" stage is the most important, because that's when you're fully aware of your actions, but I strongly disagree. Being a filly is supposed to be the best time in a pony's life. Times that you can look back on and sigh about. You don't have a tiring day to day job, you get to go outside and play with your friends, and you get to help shape one another to become better ponies. Now this is true for every filly, but one. A certain lavender filly with a special talent for magic. Yes you. Now it's not that you had a bad fillyhood, but you missed a very important time

I sat quietly in my seat as the train flew by on the tracks. The train car shook a bit every so often as I looked out the window, the scenery quickly passing us by, not letting me even glimpse its beauty for a first… and last time. As I looked out the window, my hoof on my chin, I saw a slight reflection of myself. I saw myself for who I truly was and I focused on what I was going to do when I arrived in the town. My name is Rough Draft, and this is my story.
As the train ride continued, I dug around in my old saddle bag, the handles so deteriorated they could fall off any second. I got my journal and my old fountain pen, the only thing that I had left in my life that actually meant something. I cracked open the book to the newest page and started writing. I had written the same thing over and over again, over all the pages, changing a word or two every time. I finished and closed the book, placing it back in my bag. It still didn’t sound right to me, like there’s wo

Leave this boring place and get in the club scene
Time to hangout with all the party stallions and mares
Maybe drink the night away
I get to the club,well dressed and ready to attack
Maybe find a cute girl to attract
Crazy dances and loud music fill club
Drinks are being chugged while listening to the wubs
I see the beat master in the house
I gawked at the sight
I straighten up and got ready to impress
Talking to her was a breeze
As the music play while I teased
Finally I won her time
That white mare with the blue hair was mine
What happens next?well...

But as well as learning in detail how to conjure and banish, manipulate and illuminate, I learned outside of the school, one single, indisputable fact:
Equestria is a weird, weird, weird, weird place. I've seen monsters of the darkest myths, alive and walking about. I've seen feats of Unicorn magic beyond anypony's wildest dreams. I've seen whole city streets just up and vanish within a night.
What, may you ask, do I mean by that? Well, it's the truth. No matter how many times I've tried, no matter how many maps I've pored over, paying attention the tiniest details imaginable, I have never again been able to find the Rue d'Lune.

#49) I had a phase that lasted a few months in which I "enjoyed" the Rule 34 aspect of the brony fandom, mostly just clopping at night a few times a week and only to the R34. I started to grow out of this phase about a month or two back, and now I am completely grown out of it. The R34 no longer interests me and I've stopped clopping to it. I feel mostly relieved because of this shift, but when I look back on my clopping phase, I am dragged down by guilt and sadness and can't help feeling that I am a horrible, perverted person and the bane of the fandom.
Am I a horrible person for having liked the R34 and having been a clopper? This fandom means a lot to me and I don't want to think I'm one of its "bad apples".
Answer: Welcome back. It's interesting that you went through a 'phase' normally the sort of people who would masturbate to ponies wouldn't just 'grow out' of it, and so it's interesting that you one day suddenly seemed to lose interest in that side of the f

It's been horrible ever since the incident of the Changeling invasion on Canterlot. It was September 2, 2016; Ponyville was starting to go through hardships, working along with what has happened. Equestria is beginning to go into a slow depression; Celestia has been helping to prevent this from happening by limiting the rights from the Earth Ponies, then from the Pegasi and soon from the Unicorns. Many lost their currency, even most started losing property, their homes, and soon left to become bankrupt in the streets. Soon Celestia reduced the use of the crops and food, except for a few fruits and vegitables in order for most of the money to be saved. Many disasters have occurred, and have left Equestria to still move on and work, rebuilding and collapsing. They took down the use of hot air balloons and traveling roads and prevented a few mailing systems to be used, leaving most jobs gone and left equestrian society to rely on railroad systems. Celestia then took away the righ

But their curiosity kept their hooves all but glued to the ground as they stared in awe. But what was to come next, was something they never expected to happen. True that they had seen many things in this land seeing as magic and mythical creature existed, but this, something like this was just unheard of. From that bloody ray of light there were sparks, almost as if electricity was forming in that one spot, but with a closer eye it was forming something else, something more.
Their eye stayed on the sparks, the little flicks of light dancing and growing brighter, almost blindingly brighter until it was too much to bear before it was an explosion. The air split with the sound of thunder as dust filled the surroundings. An erry wave of red light washed over the area, only to fade slowly as the bloody moon changed color to that oh s

And then change the Dr name

#85) Why do bronies have such low self-esteem? On websites like Bronysquare and Ponysquare they're always wallowing in self-pity about how much their lives suck, and they come across as being really pathetic. Many of these people don't even know what suffering is. Even if their lives do suck the internet doesn't need to know about it!
Answer: While I'd like to say that people suffering from life problems should be able to receive help online, I do find myself getting annoyed by most of the excessively 'emo' internet comments I come across. I see bronies claiming that they're going to commit suicide more often than I'd like I've never seen any of them actually go through with it and plenty do wallow in self-pity, as you say. Then again, it's not hard to see why. Chances are that bronies aren't the most popular kids at school. Those that gravitate towards fandoms tend to be your typical 'nerd' types, which plenty of bronies are. It's no surprise that some of t

Dash closed the door to Applejack's room behind her and threw herself in the orange pony's bed, letting out a grunt. The candle that was lighting up the tiny room flickered a little as the pegasus flapped her wings once and drew them closer to her body.
"You okay?" asked Applejack pricking up her ears?
Dash mumbled something facedown in the pillow. She then turned toward her marefriend and facehooved, "Your grandmother has a twisted sense of humour."

The heavy rain that fell from the sky flew into her face and drenched her mane, goggles and Wonderbolt suit.

I shivered as a cold gust of wind swept over me, pulling me out of my slumber. I blinked my eyes a few times and let out a quiet yawn. I was still tired but, I was really comfortable. Fluttershy and I were still cuddled up with each other, but she was still sleeping. I wiped my eyes with my free hoof and took a look over to Fluttershy to make sure she was alright.
Fluttershy seemed fine. She felt a little cold but, she was fine. I must've shielded her from the wind from the night. Thank, Celestia for that. I would hate for Fluttershy to get sick and not only because of that, but because it would make the trip back home more a pain as its already going to be. My leg was still feeling soar and so was the rest of my body. That tree really took its toll on me, and Fluttershy too.
My chin was still buried inside her mane, my foreleg st
