Chapter 1: Pinkie of the Dead
Celestia’s sun slowly began its descent into the distant horizon, turning the sky a haunting red. Little foals, colts and fillies started to wander the streets of Ponyville, dressed in their most terrifying and impressive costumes. There were ghosts, and monsters, goblins and ghouls. There was even a little orange pegasus dressed as an Eagle, a white hood with a hooked beak and a set of brown feathers over her body. With her, there was a little white unicorn dressed up as a rock-star and a little yellow earth pony dressed as a buffalo, red and white paint streaked over her face and a large feathered headdress atop her crown.
“Scootaloo, why couldn’t you just pick a normal costume to wear?” Sweetie Belle asked her feathered friend.
“Because I’m trying to create a different image,” Scootaloo retorted.
MasksWhen a smile is a frownMasks3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And a frown is a smile,
The eyes we must crown
For relinquishing wile,
When a laugh is a tear
And a tear holds no pain,
Will fear fear to fear
And fearfully abstain?
When the act is the truth
We've lied to believe,
And the fable in sooth
Is but a peerless weave,
When each mortal mistake
Is a tale and a song
And the scriptures are fake
Or perhaps they're wrong,
When the mind is the eye
That sees the outside
But shame, it's too shy
Of the tongue which has lied,
When the answers are easy
To the questions unknown,
Do you not feel queasy
Of how little we've grown?
When acceptance is feigning
For it keeps us alive
Like sunshine to greenlife
On deceit we thrive,
When certainty is in doubt
And fiction is a fact,
The truth may come out
But is it ever intact?
When can mere candor
Hold its frail fort,
When all this slander
Plays such a good sport,
When can we speak without a plan
And in our authenticity bask,
When the mask becomes the man?
Or when the man becom

The sun was nearing the end of its journey when the stallion arrived at the beach. He was an old earth pony, his mane no longer displaying the colors of life and youth. His gait was slow and steady with his bones silently cracking every time he took a step. Wrinkles covered most of his face and muzzle intermixing with the various scars that were etched upon his features.
But despite the frailty of his appearance, he still walked with determinations. A blast of cold sea air hit him, causing the uniform he wore to flap wildly in its wake. It was blue, with gold lining the edges. Various medals of varying sizes clung to it and jangled as he walked. In his youth, the stallion dreamed of wearing this uniform and basking in the glory in entails. When he finally accomplished his dreams, pride swelled in him, perhaps a bit of vanity.
However, now it felt foreign to him, and perhaps a bit of a burden.
The old stallion stopped near the center of the beach. It was eeri
Warriors: Dusk PrologueAbove, the black sky was as dark as a raven's feathers. Stars, along with the moon, were absent from the sky. The trees were sapped of any life, leaving only long gray branches. The ground was muddy and the woods were covered in mist. Nothing could be seen far away nor up close, making it impossible to find a way out of the forest.Warriors: Dusk Prologue2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Alone in the dark, a cat wandered his way through the forest, surveying his surroundings. His gray fur was bristled, and his eyes were a deep orange. He knew of the place he was. The Dark Forest. No ordinary cat would've been thrown into this place. Only the warrior cats, who he heard of from his mother, were supposed to inhabit this forest if they had done evil in their life, but why was he here? He wasn't dead yet. He was only 8 moons old, so it must be a nightmare. But was it real?
Suddenly, he unsheathed his claws, looking towards a large group of trees. Something was making noise behind them. He crouched slowly, sniffing for any kind of scent, but the o

Orchestrating young Luna's fall,
To darkness and corruption of her soul,
Possessed by both envy and hate,
Banishment was her final fate,
Her sister forced to pay this horrid toll.
These events are well known to all:
The Moon Princess's rise and fall,
A tragic tale and a warning as well
And yet there still is much unsaid
More of this story to be read
Of the time after Princess Luna fell
Luna now banished for all time,
Final victim of Nightmare's crime,
Celestia's warmed heart began to chill,
She knew that what she'd done was right,
Sending away Princess of Night,
Yet still this knowledge was a bitter pill.
And for days Celestia wept,
From when she woke to when she slept,
But she continued her appointed task,
She wished that she could change the past
But soon accepted this at last
And hid her grief beneath an aloof mask.
So came the day, so came the night,
The moon's dim glow, the bright sunlight,
And Celestia sat upon

Beside her Crowflight was grooming his foreleg. The black warrior's ruffled fur seemed to glow light grey in the rising sunlight. He stopped washing and his deep amber eyes washed into Mapleshade's own orange gaze. Mapleshade blinked at her brother slowly and looked back to the tiring sunlight.
Behind the two new warriors was Seedpelt, emerging from the warriors den. She stretched her limbs and sat down to groom her pelt. Mapleshade glanced behind her shoulder to see the snoozing silhouette of Streamsplash at the entrance of the elders den. Then Redstar squeezed through the lichen and sat down to groom himself. The ginger she-cat gave out a sigh of satisfaction. After her and Crowflight's long night vigil the camp was finally waking.

CHAPTER 10: Cutie Mark Criss-cross (First draft. Final version in the works)
Bucky's eyesight remained blurry as he looked around, desperately hoping to find something or somepony who could help him. He was in a room of some sort, but felt too nauseous to tell whose it was. His chest heaved with difficulty with each gasp of air becoming more shallow than the last while something clung tightly on his throat. His hoof grasped his neck to feel his Cutie Mark Crusader's cape. He had forgotten that he had put it on, but now it was choking him. Grasping at the knot, he tore it off, flooding oxygen into his lungs. He coughed loudly and painfully, gasping for a while before he sunk his head back to the cold floor. Taking the moment to catch his breath, his green eyes darted around, searching his surroundings. He was inside a small warm bedroom, not the cool basement where he once was. Stuffed animals surrounded him from all sides, their glass eyes watching his every move and motion an

As the Wheel Turns
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 once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.

Twilight Sparkle was never was much for relationships. She had her books to read after all. Only her brother Shining Armor meant anything to her. Well of course she loved her parents but she was never all to close to them, especially after she joined Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns. When she moved to Ponyville she still only remained close to Shining Armor, but somepony else seemed to catch her eye whenever she would read in the park. For some reason a rainbow would always distract her from her reading.

Deep in the heart of Equestria, nestled between the Unicorn Mountains and the Foal Range, laid the kingdom of Canterlot. A land ruled by the wise and kind alabaster Alicorn princess, Celestia and her younger sister Luna, which had known peace and prosperity for ages. Built directly into a mountain side, the great city was firmly planted with its majestic structures peering over the land for the entire world to see. Greatest of all stood the white castle where the princesses resided and spent most of their days looking over their subjects.
It was an evening like any other when the dark figured appeared before the palace guards and demanded and audience with Celestia. At first the robed figure was denied entry, until he revealed he was a griffon that came on behalf of the sovereign nation across the seas to far east.

Please forgive any spelling or grammar errors. You go ahead and try typing with claws. I can't even see the keyboard, not that I'd need to. Where are my manners? Let me introduce myself. Hello, my name is Tristan. Ever since I was 12 I've loved Xenomorphs. If you don't know what those are then stop reading and Netflix Alien and Aliens. I've loved all variations of Xenos. From the warriors from Aliens, to the swimmers from Alien Resurrection. I love them all, even the Predalien from the comics was cool. But my favorite of all, were the Praetorians. They stood 9-11 feet tall and were the Queen's royal guards. They had a crest similar to the queens and were a perfect balance. I liked warriors, I also liked queens, but if I could be any Xenomorph I'd want to be a Praetorian. This is the story about what happens when your wish consumes you.

Far beyond that of Cloudsdale's mythology
It's easy to misjudge that floating city

And it hurt to know you didn't acknowledge me.
Wandering the tunnels
Even with constant company.
In the darkness, it seemed to trap me.
Echoes on the walls.
Just me and Fallen Leaves.
Every day, I thought of my home,
With my beloved brothers,
Jayfeather and Lionblaze.
Eventually, I spent more time staring,
Searching the woods.
I'd hope you'd come find me
While I'd watch you in silence.
To most, I'm just a lost cat.
And it burns my heart like fire.
Longer, I strayed outside,
Watching my family everday.
He kept away from me.
It feels hopeless now, though he visits me, but rarely.
But someone found me, needed me.
So I left these tunnels
But I'll miss them...
I'll never forget Fallen Leaves,
But I must leave.
To most, I'm just a lost cat.
And it pierced me like a thorn,
A huge, gaping hole swallowing my heart.
But now I'm back...

She's getting ready to greet a cousin who has traveled in from afar.
Applejack rolls her eyes and tells her not to stress,
while Applebloom dirties her room with all manner of dress.
The pair arrive at the Friendship Express station,
The crusaders arrive and bounce with anticipation.
The crusaders plan out what persuasion they'll need,
and the train finally arrives with the cargo of Babs Seed.
For Babs the crusaders try to meet every need and service,
But upon being swarmed the other filly seems nervous.
They take her to the clubhouse and show her around,
but a positive reaction just cannot be found.
So they bring her outside to show her their float,
But Diamond and her toady show up to gloat.
They point out Babs has a blank flank as well,
but all thoughts of Babs being a crusader she does quickly quell.
She turns on Applebloom and her crusading pals,
She makes fun of their club and joins the other gals.

You were standing in front of America's mansion. You were worried sick about him because he had not left his house once today. You had a feeling that he was secluding himself because of what happened eleven years ago.
9/11. The worst terrorist attack on America. The day the World Trade center and the Pentagon went up in flames. The day America believed he had failed because he could not protect his people.
You knocked on his door. He opened the door, and your worries were confirmed. America was pale, as if he had seen a ghost, he looked ill, and it was obvious that he hadn't slept much in the past week or so. His face gave away that he was sad, and you knew that it was because today was 9/11.
"America.. You okay?" you asked him tentatively as you entered his mansion. He stayed silent as he closed the door.

I speak from my own tortured experience when I say that I know the mind of a bully inside and out, because I was horribly bullied throughout middle school.
