The NeverFree PrincessThe NeverFree Princess7 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
In the land of Equestria, long ago
there were two royal sisters, of that you know
One brought the night, the other the day
But one other princess was hidden away
One so sad, with a broken heart
for in this world she had no part
One who had the gift of will
but nopony needed her still
For ponies ruled the Equestrian land
and setting it free was never planned
So from the castle, one day she fled
ponies watching her fly overhead
She felt so useless, so unneeded
her sorrow ignored, so unheeded
She flew to the south, nopony was there
the land had no will, leaving it bare
She poured her magic into the earth
she saw it all happen, her magic give birth
Birth to a place where all was free
from the weather to the growth of a tree
She brought some ponies to show them her land
they stayed a while, finding it grand
But soon they learned the darker side
of the shadows and what they hide
The creatures that lurked behind the bend
were the kind y

My dear Vinyl, who could have foreseen
my dear friend, how long has it been
It seemed an eternity since I've seen your face
so leaving the train I had a quick pace
I went to our house, nopony was there
I peered inside, but found it was bare
I wondered then, what could have occurred
you leaving town just seemed so absurd
I searched high and ever so low
wondering still, where did you go
I asked around, nopony talked
with sad faces, away they walked
I didn't Know, I wondered why
what had I said to make them cry
Suddenly I heard a tune I knew
I heard it before while I lived with you
I saw a glimmer, a spark of hope
at the top of a grassy slope
It came from there, without a doubt
the song I heard, the town throughout
The sound you played, it beckoned to me
I followed it gladly, filled with glee
But as I reached the top of this hill
my happiness had all but it's fill
Sadness now came in roaring seas

pertaining to a vigil of majesty told of in transcendent scriptures. Whereupon this occurrence,
tales of dissent fall on deaf ears in the midst of these echoes of future yore,
echoes of the flutter of the wings of memory carrying a single clover of fortune.
And thus the Alicorn shall speak, with a voice know by that memory, and bring our peace,
to be the kindle of a spirit in our hearts, the same as was borne in our journey to this place
where the whispering winds blow. And this journey shall continue as we spread the wings
of memory, a transmutation of the stillness of time into our grace upon this land.

Through the good and the bad
you were always happy, never sad
Through each day you'd smile and laugh
brightening the life of all in your path
But when you died and the world grew cold
I heard you whisper from Death's dark hold
"Just keep smiling, if only for me"
"If nothing else, cause then you'll see"
"The world around you is always in need"
"but give it a smile and it will be freed"
"Freed from the chains that bind it down"
"Freed from the hate that makes us all frown"
"Freed from the sorrow that darkens your day"
"so that our friendship can wash it away"
"Even now, when you feel down"
"and the world makes you frown"

Snips and Snails were dripping sweat as they struggled to drag along the heavy wooden cart that dug into the ground. The cart plowed up the dirt and left a sizable trench in its wake. They looked at one another, tired and worn out from pulling the new tyrant of ponyville to the edge of the forcefield. They stopped for a moment to take a quick break. As soon as they had stopped, a glowing red whip snapped at their backsides from mid-air.
"Pull you fools!" the whip snapped it at them twice more. "Somepony set off the magic forcefield and Trixie intends to punish them!" shouted Trixie as she prepared to whip her subjects o

The creature that was lurking in the sewers of Marehime was no more. I was on the way *home* constantly trying to avoid the main street; even if I knew that nopony would be outside during that late time. The stain of the sewers followed me like it would be a fellow companion, while I was walking through the alleys that did not smell any better. Pain spread all over my body, paying the tribute of the flask I have used before the fight.
My sight started to get worse but gladly my *home* was not far away. With the remaining power that was still in my weaken body I entered the wealthy building that was outstanding others

MY LITTLE PONY: EYES AND HOURGLASSESChapter 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 s

"No you are not. We never wanted a daughter, we want a son. You are going to become what we always saw you as; A hideous ugly beast." The Duke said as he and his wife left the room without looking back at their daughter. Then the wizards of Kaonol began to work their magic and changed the once beautiful yellow mage into a spider monster.
After she woke up, she was in the forest. Her parents had put a bounty on her head saying that she killed their 'beloved daughter'.*
The poor spider creature woke up in a cold sweat.

Arcee woke up with a start as General Lennox made his announcement. She realised she had been recharging all the way through the flight. She must've been a lot more exhausted than she thought, and neither Bumblebee nor Sideswipe had waked her. She scanned her surroundings and discovered that some of the Autobots were already awake, including her squad members. Even Bluestreak was wide awake and chatting

For the Knight of good to fight his fight
To make the haters all take flight
On wings of rage, away they flee
Never looking at you or me
On wings of love, so high we'll fly
We'll look upon them from the sky
Hanging their heads, ever so low
We'll show them the love all bronies know
We'll show them the path to find their mark
And watch as their friendship makes "The Spark"

I'm the only one up right now.
Well, besides Bumblebee he's sitting on the floor giggling, because I'm still sleeping on top of Megatron.
I'm actually surprised he didn't roll over or something.
It's hard to write this too. My Diary is on Megatron's chest, so I guess it's not that hard.
I just hope I don't wake him up.
Megatron's still sleeping.
Ratchet, Blitzwing, Prowl, and Lugnut are awake too now.
Only Bulkhead, Starscream, and Megatron are sleeping now.

I was talking to Ratchet about Megatron.
He said that if I ever actually want to be with him, they'd have to end the war.

He said the same thing Ratchet said.
But I said we just can't end the war like that.
So, he said he'll sign a bunch of papers with the elite guard to end the war or something

He looked confused by my reaction. I wasn't panicking or anything. It was so unlike me not to get myself worked up, but I guess I just didn't really believe what he was telling me.

He had the building surrounded. I'd barricaded myself in but he had managed to break through my defence. Attempting to conceal myself had made no difference; he was looking for me and would stop at nothing to catch me. I looked around the room for some way of escaping or some elaborate piece of furniture that I could hide behind or underneath, but there was no hope for that. Being utterly vulnerable was the worst part about it; I could not even arm myself with a weapon. I heard a hoof hammering against the door and lowered my head in submission. There was no escaping this time. Light flooded into the room, blocked out in fr

It was important that I not mess up this neat little situation that I currently found myself in. It is often far too easy to lose something good in this life due to carelessness, and this was something that I could not risk jeopardising. And so, my next actions would have to be mediated by logical thought and rationality. It was important to look at the facts before judging the scenario that I had stumbled into quite unwittingly. Firstly, Rarity had made it quite clear from the beginning that she had no interest in any form of relationship, and that her life was devoted to her work and, in more recent months, her rapidly inc
