The flashes were the complete opposite of illness, actually. Simply the image of the woman and her dragon was all it took to eat away all his stress, anger and rage. It left his mind in a state of lucidity he couldn’t achieve otherwise.

Declan let a low and angry growl out of the corner of his mouth. It was barely dusk, and the mobs were already coming out of whatever hellhole spawned them?
The next arrow thrown at him was caught at him, glowing blue for a split second before being crumpled up, like a failed essay in a weary student’s hand. And, if the arrow was an essay, the skeleton was a poster, brought before its creator and torn ligament from weak ligament.
The priest watched the skeleton’s demise without regret and swept the bones away wordlessly. Once the initial shock and distress wore off, curiosity came roaring up to him, demanding answers like a beast demands food.
He knew how taxing it could be, draining adrenalin reserves as if they were water bottles in the desert. Jorda

The 12 Basic Principles of AnimationTHE 12 BASIC PRINCIPLES OF ANIMATIONThe 12 Basic Principles of Animation9 months ago in Historical More Like This
by DISNEY'S NINE OLD MEN, & JIMMY GIBSON
SQUASH AND STRETCH
The most important principle is "Squash and Stretch", the purpose of which is to give a sense of weight and flexibility to drawn objects. It can be applied to simple objects, like a bouncing ball, or more complex constructions, like the musculature of a human face. Taken to an extreme point, a figure stretched or squashed to an exaggerated degree can have a comical effect. In realistic animation, however, the most important aspect of this principle is the fact that an object's volume does not change when squashed or stretched. If the length of a ball is stretched vertically, its width (in three dimensions, also its depth) needs to contract correspondingly horizontally.
Anticipation is used to prepare the audience for an action, and to make the action appear more realistic. A dancer jumping off the floor has to bend his knees first; a golfer making a swing has to swing the club

Everyone knows the term "cheating death": it's when you get to escape the ending of your life, or the cruelness of how it will end or just the terror itself it carries. But everyone knows that Death will eventually catch up to you. Some people can evade it for a long period of time while others may not have the best of luck. I cheated Death once, and it hasn't caught up to me... yet. Before I die; before I'm caught, I want people to know his story. Yes, his story, not mine. This isn't about me.

"Well, well, well... it seems that things are about to change around here."
There are, of course, many changes in a pony's life. Sometimes it's a day-to-day difference like that of the weather, and sometimes it's a big change which leaves a lasting impact on a pony's life.
There are many events like these which have importance - weddings, births, holidays, causes of celebration and good tidings. And along with the importance of these events comes others bringing it up as their topic of current discussion.
The speaker was talking about a major event such as this - a wedding. And not just a wedding of two ordinary ponies, but a grand union of Equestrian royalty.
With royalty, a momentous occasion is never shared with simply a few close friends and family. The celebrity status of the ponies in question guarantees that the entire surrounding area will be alerted about the event sooner or later. Especially the celebration that was fast
The Clockwork cities - intro Not many people know of the Clockwork Cities, but the truth is, they've always been there. For every time and place, there was a clockwork counterpart, and behind every ticking clock, was a door that leads there. All it took was to find a big enough clock and search for the passage. Easier said than done, of course.The Clockwork cities - intro6 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Finding a big clock was one thing. A tourist, for example, would have a hard time trying to convince those seemingly nice people in white coats to let him inside the Big Ben so he can visit another world, and that he hadn't bashed his head against the wall after missing yet another tour bus.
However, those who were lucky (or more likely unlucky) enough to end up in a Clockwork city would tell you that it was the worst possible name you could give to it, as Time made absolutely no sense there. The whole city operated like a broken clock, which is to say, it hardly operated at all.
