Faithless FlameAs a fire does burn
Deep into the night
Away the flames fly
In a fearless flight
The flames burn strong
Of light and heat
Glowing with life
Yet dead in defeat
Feeding on a log
Taunt and tame
A lifeless soul
A faithless flame
I look into the flame
I see what appears to be
The past of a dream
The meaning of me
I look at the coals
A glowing sensation
looking at my past
Of tainted temptation
The flames are dying
As the night grows old
I see the flames suffering
As I feel around me the cold
I close my eyes once more
Feeling again of shame
What has died away in front of me
Is the faithless flame
I face the cold once more
No warmth, no light
I continue to walk south and east
Facing the fearless flight
Roam into cold and dark
Fight through your vain
Stay on the narrow path
And avoid the faithless flame
A short Story: IrisIt was a morning like any other, I had gotten up early to have a nice warm shower. But something was different this time, Marionette was awake, cooking breakfast. But it was much earlier than usual.A short Story: Iris7 months ago in Personal More Like This
"She's up about an hour earlier than usual" I thought.
But I shrugged it off thinking maybe I had just slept in. I approached the shower door, and from behind me came a voice from the kitchen; Soti.
"Going for a shower?" He asked.
I simply responded "Yes, you know I do in the morning."
The creepy parasite replied with "Have fun." I was suspicious, but chose to ignore it. I opened the door to the shower and set the towel down. Then I heard something; It was a very dull, light scraping sound. Someone else was here.
I looked up to see a woman drying herself, a towel firmly around her body. Again, Soti's voice called through the doorway.
"Nice chest, Iris!" He said.
Her eyes opened fast, showing anger and embarrassment. All focused on me instead of the one who sprung me.

Read this, the Heterosexuality quiz: http://aquarianzone.tripod.com/hetquiz.html
What is it getting you to think about?
Starting off, sexuality is socially constructed, meaning society has labelled them in accordance to what a person's sexual attraction falls under (the majority at least). Question yourself, what are you? Why are you what you are? Is there anything wrong with it? Is there anything right about it?
Heres an example, there is a pornographic video (or image) depicting two females engaging in sexual activity. Typically, this caters to either homosexual females, but primarily heterosexual males. This is more socially accepted as "erotic" than seeing two homosexual males engaging in the same manner. Why is this? It's equally as homosexual, yet it lost its eroticism (for the majority of society).
What about the children? Did you know approx. 75% of all child

After much talking, they had to take cover when they heard of a hurricane coming soon where they were heading, and after much hiding, walking, and changing paths they arrived to their actual location.
The three recent arrivals stared in admiration for quite a time before one of them, a short curly haired woman, broke the mutual silence:

I'm here to talk about "gay." Not the people; the term. When the term had first been created, it meant "happy"/"to be happy." Eventually, the homosexual community adopted the phrase to describe themselves as "happy to be homosexual." This was very positive, to say in the least. But, as everyone knows, not everyone is treated with equal respect and dignity. Much like the racial segragation in the past, homosexuals started to get shunned, especially when you add religion to impressionable people. As a result, "gay" began to be used as a derogatory term. This was inevitable. But that's all in the past. Gays have been getting more and more rights, and this is an extremely great thing! However, because of close-minded people (who I hate more than homophobes), "gay" started to become a synonym for "stupid" in the t

And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this.

Longing For My Star In The Sky
Where has my star in the sky gone?
I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Maybe my Star has gone to sleep for the night...
Nightie-night my sweet Star in the sky,
I'll be missing you while you sleep.
For you I shall wait 'til the dawn's early morn',
and from you I won't be torn until night-fall, when you fall back into slumber.
Sweet Star in the sky, why does it have to be this way?
Why do we have to part ways every day?
I'm longing for you my star in the sky,
and without you...
my heart will surely cry.
I wish you were right here with me,
so we could cuddle and just be.

First impressions on Babs Seed? She's not too bad. I've already seen MLP fans giving her hate on Equestria Daily, not cause she's a bully, but because "She looks like a bad OC" and "Her voice is so annoying and doesn't anything a filly should sound like".
Well, here's my thoughts on her. One, what do the fans want? Do they want Babs to be all sparkly, beautiful and top-notched. No one is perfect in Equestria or our world. And for being an "OC", that's original character, and therefore Hasbro's original character.
Second, her voice. I can understand it's not probably many were expecting, but not to me. When I first he

Okay, so Bronycon is happening this weekend. In case someone doesn't know what Bronycon is, it's a convention dedicated to fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It's like any other pop culture convention; it has video games, LARP, artists, dealers, guests, cosplay, etc. Currently, there's also a documentary about Bronycon and the fandom being made my John De Lanice (voice of Discord and is Q from Star Trek).
Anyway, as a fan of the series, it's good to see a convention like this. Did I go? No. Would I want to go? Hmm..doubt it. Not because I don't want to go. I have other cons to go to and live far away. If closer, yeah I would probably go.
Now onto the defense I need to do. Before I start, I am not one of those rabid fans. Btw, every pop culture has its' rabid fans. Anyway, I cannot believe the amount of ha

Anyway, I just got finished reading more about the showings of the premiere and arguments about bronies and the target audience, little girls. Something then came to me.
Is the target audience, only little girls and their parents/moms, still valid in regards to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic?
When I saw the premiere, it was a half-full theater. The majority of the people in the lobby were going to see Man of Steel. I went alone to Equestria Girls. With the half-filled theater, I'd say it was 35% teen-adult fans (including parents) and 65% little girls. We adult fans were on our best behivour from what I noticed and only laughed when approiate such as funny moments or noticed a reference. The parents seemed to enjoy our presence. When Derpy appeared at the end and we cheered, many of the parents I saw were smiling at us cause I think they knew we were true

However, while most enjoyed it, you still are going to get haters. And as a word of caution, avoid the comments section on Equestria Daily on pretty much anything related to Equestria Girls. Some people have trouble letting go and want the entire internet to know that they hate Equestria Girls.
But I did learn a couple of things from the haters in regards to EG if you liked the movie:
1. You are nothing but a Hasbro buttkisser or paid by Hasbro to give a positive review.
2. Speaking of reviews, your reviews don't count cause you aren't a paid professional.

I can give a huge lecture on queer-thinking, and abolishing "normal" in society, but seriously, why the hell is there such thing as "normal" and when someone deviates from it, it's "abnormal". Is there really anything wrong with being different? If you fall short of the "normal" boundary that most people go by? Are you/have you ever been forced to be who you aren't? To be what someone else wants you to be? I know I have, and to live to their standards and abide by their truths and rules. In my house,liking My Little Pony makes your parent's not only embarrassed, but puts them to shame. and masturbation will make your penis to fall off. Those are a couple of things in my life I dealt/deal with. I know, its pretty f**ked up.

A Vampiric Order Novel

My name is Len. I don't have much time to give you this information, so listen well. Cause I can only say this once. For about one century, I have been in a certain covenant of vampires called the Death Dealers. They are a powerful covenant. Said to have more power than your average vampire. Because the only ones in the covenant are either stronger than they should be, or they hold some kind of power that makes them better than the rest.
Somenix, their leader, was the one who taught me everything I needed to know. I was his apprentice until I was good enough to meet his standards. I joined the Death Dealers at the age you humans would see me at as seventeen. But really, I was older than that. Way older. But we don't need to go there.
After that, I became his right hand assassin, known to the rest of the coven as "Len the Sinner". Because what my job was, went against what the rules that were placed on the c

Prologue: One Last Spell
Princess Celestia's hooves drummed a frantic beat on the stone floors as the slow repetition of that damnable ram crashing against the castle doors chased her through the halls. Interspersed throughout was the clattering of wood against wood, the sound of royal guards desperate to buy their princesses every last second they could.
Though the sound was too far away for her ears, she knew that her parents were strapping on their armor for the very same purpose.
The city was drowning in rebel forces. Even if she managed to break through the attack, she and Luna would not be allowed to live. As it stood now, their only future was death.
But there was a way out. The royal servants had given her a chance, a desperate gamble that may save her and her sister.

Near the centre of town sat a large tree. It had originally been the town hall during Ponyville's early years. More recently, however, the tree house had become Ponyville's library. It was a place of peace in times of trouble and much to the residents' dismay, it was often damaged. The tree was bathed in the golden light of the morn, making the frost on the leaves sparkle like the stars. These were the same stars that the tree house's sole occupant, the unicorn Twilight Sparkle, had spent most of the night gazing at. Twilight turned over as the sunlight filled the room, trying to catch a few more minutes of sleep before she had to begin repairs on the hole in the ceiling that Twilight's Pegasus friend Rainbow Dash had made the day before. Normally she would have fixed it

Twilight Sparkle hadn't run this fast since she was a filly.
She rounded the spiral stairs of Canterlot Castle, gasping and desperate, until she reached her library workshop. Her chest heaved and hurt from the nonstop running, but she pushed it aside to concentrate on the task at hand.
They'd called her mad. They'd said she was depraved. They'd said she was messing with powers beyond her reach.
Unfortunately, for once, it seemed that "they" were right.
Wasting no time, she willed several books off of the massive shelves. They opened and spun around her. Twilight's eyes were lightning, moving across several turning pages in mere seconds. Her mind moved almost as frantically.
It should have worked, it should should have worked, it should have worked! None of this should have happened! I checked everything! I dotted my Is, crossed all the Ts, carried all the ones, seriously what happened here-
