These things I feel
Emotions for a lesser being
A decision made
The greater good served
A void torn asunder
My Sister lost
My subjects to blame
The signs so bright
A blind eye turned
Pride, my greatest sin
The moon stands alone
Stars mourn the loss
A canvas laid bare
Alone I rule
A mask to show them all
Half the mare I was
Loneliness my companion

Where did the world once disappear
When we were praying for freedom
The light was blinding my eyes,
Then darkness came;
Was that the end…?
What waited were the graying walls
Lifeless city and kingdom
Is this the worth of my existence
Has nothing changed?
Am I alive and trapped in the death
Or dead and lost my afterlife
Was I ever anything else
Than these crippling chains around my neck
They say time had forgotten our life
Yet the scars are still fresh in my heart
Can't I just leave it b

Princess Luna may enter your dreams,
To enlighten your nightmare,
and end all the screams.
But who can wake her up at night,
when our nightmares are too much to bear?
Maybe our dreams just might give her a fright.
Even our worst fears may be too much for her too take.
Our phobias could become her own if given the chance.
Let's hope our visions don't make her heart ache.
Next time you wake and your imagination comes to an end,
Thank Princess Luna for taking the stance,
For it is her, whose pschye must now bend.
Now there she lay, tucked in bed all warm,
ready to rest in her blissful lair.
And our fears manifest in a full fledge s

Canterlot's silent, evening streets were not graced by the moon's rays, as a thick veil of storm clouds blocked it from view. The calm before the storm was chilling, the entire world holding its breath in anticipation of the first drop of rain.
And when it fell, it came in torrents, crashing over rooftops and spilling into overflowing gutters. A streak of lightning illuminated the entirety of the peaceful capital, the violent rumble of thunder following quickly on its heels.
However, the solitary pony ensconced within the Canterlot Palace archives paid no mind to the storm outside. She'd come to the archives on a mission; a mission of which

It's true, and it's hardly befitting the way a Princess of Equestria should feel. After all, my only sister is finally back. I should be happy. Overjoyed, even. But the truth is, as much as I love her, I was secretly happy when I sent her to the moon. And that makes me a bad sister.
Over a thousand years ago, Luna and I made a pact to protect Equestria together. The mare whose coat was as dark as the night would rule the moon. The mare whose coat was as bright as the day would rule the sun. We shared our ru

I'm watching the timeline
The tokens left of those days
There once was a time when
I still resembled myself
In those pictures
Younger me once sew
The blanket on which
Older me now sleeps
Drifts in the past
Where we once cantered
We had no fears, we had no cares
There we once cantered
When we were young, me and my friends
I've lived a full life
I've reaped and sown my own share
Cradle of children
Harvest born of first seeds
I remember how I saw them bloom
Grow full of life
And how they faded away
Left in the fields

Dark Side of the Luna
It was a beautiful night in Equestria. Princess Luna stood watching over the land, taking in the awe of the world around her, the greens of the fields that covered the vast horizon, the browns of the forests that decorated the horizons. She looked outward, keeping an eye on all of the ponies as they slept peacefully through the night, each one with their own stories, their own histories and futures. It had been a long day. The Pegasus ponies has created a mighty storm earlier; huge, dark clouds hung above; thunder cracked across the skies and strong winds howled through the trees. It was a beautiful yet frightening sigh

This blog is dedicated to showing you all the history of my OC, and how she's changed over time.
In early November 2011, I was browsing through the forums of my favourite game of all time, EVE Online. I had found a pony thread that I posted in a lot, having fun with other bronies that played the game. There are four unique factions in the game that operate like the governments. Someone had created ponies that reflect each of the four factions. The one for the faction that I belonged to (I was Caldari) had a soft grey coat, and a creme mane, with her cutie mark being the logo of the Caldari people. I loved that design. I figured that I would
To Be An AlicornSweet Apple Acres was a busy place in the spring. Two young stallions walked the fields with plows in tow, while a mailpony dragged in shipments of seeds and tools, and a couple more ponies were visible amonst the apple trees. Adding to the general bustle was a visitor to the farm who gingerly stepped out of the sky, looked around, and opened the gate into the main homestead area. A filly, not quite yet a mare, with a light green coat and straw-colored hair and baskets strapped to her saddle had been trotting through the area, and noticed the visitor first. She stopped dead in her tracks, eyes as big as the moon.To Be An Alicorn2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I barely took another step when I spotted a pink blur out of my eye. Before I could react, I was knocked off my hooves. Staring down at me was a bright pink pony, with an especially curly and bouncy mane. Once she opened her mouth, words spilled out.
"Sorry! I didn't mean to knock you over. I mean, cause I was so excited to find my friends that I had to get to them as fast as possible and show them my newest batch of cupcakes that I made with hot jalapeno sauce and- Hey, wait!" She stared cock-eyed at me. Then she made a long, drawn out gasp, and disappeared in another pink blur.
"What, just, happened?" My head went dizzy slightly.

"So is everything set for the attack tonight?" Discord asked.
"Yes. The subs are in position 150 miles off of the coasts. We're just waiting for nightfall," the Minotaur replied.
"Very good. Now what about the other project?"
"We ran into a snag, but almost have it taken care of. It should be ready by next weekend."
"'Should be' doesn't sound that good," Discord said with an unamused look on his face.

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 thi

Just exactly how am I suppose to describe you, my intent?
Forget 20% cooler, your definably cooler by 22%!
With your delectable cotton candy mane,
Anyone to say you were undesirable would be inane!
I was to fly, you were made of Earth,
and yet your cheeks had the most fascinating girth!
How many cupcakes can fit into one mouth?
But that adds to your cuteness, even the repercussions of all that going south.

Empty inside, my heart to fill, wash away the distain
I just want to show and share all of my gifts
But each and every town that I leave always throws fits
Maybe I am damaged, lacking that special thing?
That which will complete me, and make my heart sing
I act out of turn and come off as boastful
This time will be different, of this I am hopeful
As I watch the crowd gather, they ooh and they ah

Is it the way my eyes
Look at the floor
And towards the sky?
I just don’t know
What’s wrong with me,
But if you’d like,
I’ll never speak;
You can sew my lips shut
So I’ll not utter a peep.
I’ll hide my eyes

Maybe find a cute girl to attract

Drinks are being chugged while listening to the wubs

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
