I laid curled up on my bed reading a book Father had given me from his ventures out of the cave. The book I was reading was "Lord of the Rings". It was written by a human called JRR Tolkien. I love reading human literature and I would love to one day venture into the towns and cities and see what other literature I could find from the remains of the humans that used to live here.
My name is Ash, I'm a sixteen year old bipedal dragon. I'm about six foot tall, my scales are sky blue as are my wings. I also look like every other dragon, with me having two white horns protruding from the back of my head.
SurvivedI remember the day I was hit by the car. It was a cold morning. The rain fell that day, so heavy that it kicked up a thick mist over the area, letting one see no further than two of his own arm spans. I remember that day vividly. Here I was, foolish and unafraid, braving one of the worst monsoon rains on a bicycle just to get to school. Time was short, and the traffic light ahead of me was turning red.Survived4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
In blind, oh-so foolish faith I charged right across the road, hoping that someone would spot my light green uniform through the mist and stop before I was hit.
Keyword there being 'hoped'. I was there, making a mad dash across a road who's other side was invisible to me from the mist that was stirred up by the rain. Fighting against the sweeping chills of the wind in the already-frigid rain, I paddled on, squinting my eyes as the winds swept the rain into my face as well, stinging painfully. I paddled as hard as I could, a smile creeping on my face as I saw the other end of the

Gorgeous hues of red and orange bled into deep violet as the sun set on the horizon. All across Equestria, ponies would be winding down, some enjoying the sight with their special somepony. Luna however paid no mind to the view, instead engrossing herself into her study. If it wasn’t for the final reading light fading from the sky, she might never have noticed it was time for her to raise the moon. Catching up on one thousand years of history and culture didn’t happen overnight, and at this rate Luna thought it might take another one thousand years.
Luna looked down at the infuriatingly fine print, squinting to try and discern any of the letters. But it was no use; she tossed a loose sheet of parchment in the pages to track her place. She walked over to the balcony, telekinetically opening the doors and sidestepping around her telescope. Taking hold of the energy of the moon as she must have done at least a thousand times since she returned to the castle, she focused

CHAPTER 11: Shelter (First draft. Final version in the works)
The sun continued to rise slowly in the morning chill and the frigid draft of the wind blew through the apple trees of the Apple family. The rumble of thunder echoed in the distance while it whistled around Radiance, making her want to curl into a tight ball. She couldn't hear anything, open her eyes, or move more than a little, but she could feel the bitterness of the breeze down to her bones. Her body shivered and her mind could not think of anything but the cold, as if ice had frozen her in place. Slowly, her senses began to return, and only when the crackle of a small fire could be heard and felt did she relax. Her heavy eyes opened narrowly, watching the blurred movements of the amber sparks in front of her. Their dim glowing air patterns danced before her before rising up into the air and disappearing in the small plume of grey smoke. A figure poked at the smoldering wood, keeping it alive and preventing the w
Airshipping Is MagicThe morning air was crisp and cool with barely a breeze blowing. The sky was crystal blue, and the rays of the sun played lazily across the green countryside. It was the perfect day, thought Twilight Blimple, for a flight.Airshipping Is Magic5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The little purple sparkly blimp slowly rose into the air, enjoying the wind as it played across her surface. Her propellers spun into life as she turned in a westerly direction, the fluted spire that jutted out from her control deck pointing the way.
Twilight wasn't a big blimp. Her gasbag was large but stubby, her fins small and protruding, and her purple gondola cabin was slung almost apologetically underneath. Growing up as a little balloon in the big city she had always been jealous of the other airships, who always seemed to be more graceful than she. But soon study had paid off.
Today, she was on an important mission. Today she had to ferry vital medical aid across Airquestria. A hailstorm had hit the town of Hull, and puncture repair kits were urgently needed.

What was I thinking?
A star-adorned tiara plopped onto Twilight Sparkle's bed.
It all looked to so good in my head! The actual outfit even looked good! At least to me... but I'm no designer, am I?
Two oversized, star-plastered sets of earrings and bows followed.
And the whole time, I pushed her to make it. Constantly correcting her over the most minor of details, forcing her to abandon her design sensibilities, and being ungrateful about a dress that she had offered to make me for free!
That dress, cluttered with animal and constellation designs, joined her jewelry on the bed with a soft ploomf. Twilight looked at the ensemble, only now finally able to see it for the trainwreck it was.
Whew. Back to some semblance of sanity. But the damage is already done. It's my fault. I asked for this, and I got exactly what I wanted... at the expense of a good friend's image. Maybe even her career. I'm the absolute worst.

It was still a heavenly sight, even now.
Keys were pressed at lightning speed across Magical Melody's piano, assembling a collection of tones with a pronounced classical air. In time, Binary Match recognized it as as a casual rendition of Parasprite Waltz.
Melody hadn't noticed Binary looking through her window yet, and so continued to play. It was like before they'd met, with one clear difference--instead of wrinkled frustration, Melody's face now displayed a peaceful smile.
Only when the song was finished did Binary knock on the front door. Almost immediately she heard the light scrape of a piano stool and the equally light tapping of hooves--galloping hooves, since when did Melody have that much energy?--approaching the door, which opened in mere seconds.
And, then, there was Melody, in front of her, staring at her--and still wearing that smile.
Binary waved. "Hi there."
Melody's smile grew even bigger. "Hi, Binary! Come on in."

Lose your sparkle.

Never again will you be lonely.

It was in the early morning just outside of Ponyville, as Rainbow Dash was getting ready for a very special trip. Her saddle bag was on the floor of her house, as she began to load it with books she thought she might need during the trip. Equestria's capital city of Canterlot wasn't that far away, a few hours at most, but she and Twilight would be staying there for at least a week, so she wanted to be fully prepared.
"So, you'll be gone for a while, huh?" asked Stardrop, Rainbow's caramel-coloured roommate. She had a cutie mark of three raindrops and a blue mane. They shared a home made of solidified cloud floating just a few feet above the cloud layer, with another pegasus.

New York City - a sprawling metropolis of endless possibilities, people of all walks of life, and fragments of all cultures abound. But like any big city, danger also waits around every corner, ready to pounce on the one unsuspecting victim careless enough to wander into it. Such was the case for one particular college student, who simply went by the humble name of Zachery.
Zachery was a guy who never did wrong by anybody, purely going about his business, looking to get a degree, and move on with his life. Unfortunately, having come from a past littered to the brim with bad luck, traveling to a dauntingly massive city such as New York for a long-term residency was practically inviting trouble into his life.
On one particularly sun-baked day, Zach was traveling through the concrete jungle, on his way to a friend's house for another long ni

Think about your favorite story. Ever.
Well, I can't think about mine, so I'll go for "Which French anti-hero do I feel like fangirling for today?" Narrowly beating out the story about the tragic relationship between the bohemian sociopath with the amazing set of pipes and unfortunate skin condition (unless he's being played by Gerard Butler) and a Scandinavian soprano is The Count of Monte Cristo. That novel is, in its unabridged printing, thick enough to bludgeon a walrus with. It starts off pretty fast, but gets slow just as quickly. It's not a book for the short of attention span.
So why do I love that novel? For the titular Count. For the cast of cool main characters. For the One True Pairing of Maximilian Morrel and Valentine de Villefort. For duels and revenge and intrigue and character driven plot and a main character who is (and I am using the technical terminology, borrowed from tvtropes.org) badass enoug

A delicate red eyebrow arched at his statement of lies and that made Xull’rae smile in a flirtatious manner, “Me lie? Truly. . . you must be thinking of some other vile drowess . . .”
She approached the half drow slowly, like a stalking hunter. Xull’rae was completely fixated on Grey. The chill air was not felt, the festivities decorations were not seen, the music and excited chatter all around her was not heard.
"I have something for you,” Grey responded. Green eyes smiled softly,” they said I killed a squirrel. It was dead when I got there, I swear...Eating animal souls is... kind of strange... It upsets my stomach." He chuckled a little at those words, hiding the morbidity of it all behind his usual humor. Neither Ulvein nor Solrac had noticed the splinters in his hands that had been the actual cause for the blood on his hands that was actually his own.
He took the bag tightly in his hands and placed it beside him, tempting her to sit with him.

But by the time the winter came

You tried your best to warm me up
But I can't take no more
Without you my heart will thaw

And because of that fact
We both could pretend
That love does exist here
And we were meant to be

That happiness oblige
We should be free for you and me
To cross the great divide
And when we go our separate ways
And become who we are
I'll still keep you in my heart

Before diving into this, I think some background would be useful. When she was young, she had dreams. Dreams of shining and of making others shine. She made herself and others look beautiful; for that initial interim she held high. When she fell (south of Ponyville, Old Manehattan-land) her dreams became nightmares, seizing her by the hoof and never letting go. She was taken and put into a bed of rust and red crosses. I was one of the few who had the time to give. She wanted me dead but it pained her to see me walk out those sliding doors.
Now, I won't pretend I understand. I never will know what she went through for those ten months and two days. She had a constant sting in her side that she claimed she could only numb by sticking her head in the stove. Her nightmares became easier during this time. And I like to think that I did my best in the time that she had to make her comfortable, even when the sting became too painful to breathe.

The Heart Rate Monitor was a constant drumming against Applejack's sanity, each recurring 'beep' threatening to throw her over the edge. She had no idea how long she had been lying there, just listening to the devilish contraption. In fact, the farm girl could hardly remember anything at all. Echoes of voices filtered throughout her memory, but they were so scattered that she had no idea how they went together; they were just sentence fragments in an abyss of confusion.
