The two rainbow-maned, blue-coated pegasi stared at each other. Dash couldn't believe what she was seeing. She'd always felt she was unique: not just the tripe parents fed their foals about "everypony being special in their own way", but because ponies with naturally many-colored manes were fairly rare, and she had never met another pony that shared the same shades that were her namesake. Even worse... even worse, this pony was her – the same face, the same coat, the same rose-hued eyes she saw every morning in the mirror.
A wave of vertigo swept over her, as though she'd been riding a thermal a mile up and lost it suddenly, plummeting down; she scrambled to regain control, to stay calm, to figure out what the hay was going on.
This wasn't her. This... other self looked grimmer than she ever had: there was a hard set to her jaw, a tightness around the eyes, and the eyes themselves, well... she knew she'd never looked so cold and calculating. There was darkness there

Curtain Call sat restlessly upon his little boat on the ocean, staring out into the endless blue as the white-crested waves lapped the sides of his ship. He could hear the deep, steady breaths of the wizened, old stallion who had his back turned behind him, with a fishing pole grasped lazily in his hooves. His father, the farmer. The old stallion's eyes flickered for a moment, almost losing themselves to the bliss of a nice, afternoon nap, before shaking his head in protest, and returning to his usual, lax pose.
Curtain grumbled to himself with a slight twinge of irritation. Why exactly were they fishing, in the first place? After he had given his father the news that he was going to be engaged, the old stallion slapped a bucket hat upon his head and told him they were going to celebrate with a day out at sea. But, really, fishing was just a game for foals, harmless, rubber hooks inviting fish to play some tug of war. Surely he was too old for this?
But, apparently, his father was not,

A small patch of smoke shifted gently at Macintosh terrified shout. An end of the cloud rose, coalescing into a rounded shape. Two triangular wisps rose from the side of the shape and solidified into ears. The shape stretched forwards into a muzzle and diamond-like fangs appeared as the head completed itself. The rest of the cloud rose and lengthened, becoming the creature's body even as the remaining vapors flowed away, becoming four lean legs and a tail. Finally, a pair of amethyst eyes formed, completing the transformation.
The wolf-like creature let out a yawn and stretched. This was a cheocú, a creature of the fey, and in his panic Macintosh had awoken it. It sniffed the air tentatively. It smelled meat, unlike any creature it had hunted. But on top of that it smelled something else.
It smelled fear.
Regardless of where it had come, one thing was for certain - the new creature was afraid. The smell was unmistakable. The cheocú was

"It is time your highness."
"Well let's get going then."
Discord left the palace and headed out to a helicopter that was waiting to take him to the location of the project they had been working on for the last several months.
"Will these tests be painful?" Discord asked.
"They shouldn't. All we'll do is connect everything to you and get it set up."
"Very well. Let's do this. I'm in the mood for some grand scale chaos."
Whitemare AFB Conference Room
Both sides had been up since 6AM going over stuff and readying the peace accords and the plans to jointly go after Discord. The plan was to attack his forces in and around Gracemareia, as well as taking him out. Dash, Rarity, and Fluttershy spent the time getting caught up. As soon as Pinkie heard they were together she made a bee line for the base, and was also talking to them.
"I can't believe we're back together! Well we are missing Twilight and Applejack but t

"C'mon Asi! Bianca is waiting for us, hurry up."
"Hold on, I'm almost ready." Asi put his hat over his messy hair and threw on his jacket. "alright let's go."
"C'mon Asi. today is the first day of the rest of our lives, the least you can do is comb your hair." Brista Nagged him.
"You were already rushing me out of the house, I didn't have time to. And since when have I ever combed it?"
"WAAAIT!" Asi's little sister Alice came running out of the house.
Asi turned reluctantly. "What is it now?"
"You forgot this!" she handed him his c-gear device.
Asi looked at his wrist surprised it wasn't there. "Oh whoops " He took it and put it on his wrist. "See what happens when you rush me." He told Brista.
"Now call home every day Asi, don't wana worry mom now do ya." Alice giggled.
Asi gave her a dirty look. Getting away from home was one of the reasons he accepted the invitation from Juniper to travel throughout the Unova region. The other was because h

there was a crooked Girl
and she walked acrooked mile
she found a crooked sixpence
upon a crooked stile
she bought a Crooked cat
which caught a crooked mouse
and they all live together
in a crooked little house
except the crooked girl
that loves to crook all the paintings around
when night sets down,if you hear crooked steps
be sure to look under your bed,if you see a crooked smile
or she'll crook your head off
WRITTEN/TYPED REVIEW OF SONIC SUPER SPECIAL # 5WRITTEN/TYPED REVIEW OF SONIC SUPER SPECIAL # 51 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Good evening everyone,
This is my overview/review and in written/typed form, for Sonic Super Special # 5 : The Poster Spectacular Edition for November/December/January 2012 and 13.
I will say this, just like the super specials they came before, it does stay the same. I mean it's got its news flash section, it's interview section, its letters page, and just about all the other sections you would come to expect from these new super special magazines.
And of course, you can't have one of these super specials without showcasing an enlarged reprint of two main stories from previous issues. The first reprint is from issue 198, which is basically the start of the three-part 200th anniversary arc, which of course took place a month before the Iron Dominion arc that lasted for about a year if not a month extra in the comics. The second story that gets a reprint in this super special, is the main story for issue 216, which featured the return of Rotor's family and

"Happy Hearth's Warming Eve, Squirt"
The streets of Ponyville were empty, life gone off to celebrate the holiday. The air was chilled, indigo sky so dark even the most dim stars stood out like giant fireflies. The sides of the street were lined with a thin layer of snow. It was an unusually snow-less Hearth's Warming Eve. Still brisk in the air, yet too warm for snow to remain un-melted for too long.
Scootaloo slowly trotted down the empty road, head hung low and tail tucked between her legs- both out of depression and as a means to keep herself warm in the chilly night air. The gentle gust, persistent in its presence, made the filly's purple mane flicker.
She lifted her head, her set of violet eyes looked left, then right. Nothing but darkened shops and illum

"You were right girls. Taking a day off to have some fun was really what I needed" said Twilight Sparkle while walking among the crowd that was attending the Annual Hoofington Carnival.
"Really, darling, you should leave that library more often. Sooner or later you're going to yourself into a book. It wouldn't surprise me with all the hours you spend with that muzzle of yours buried in those old dusty tomes" replied Rarity.
"Yeah, like being a bookworm wasn't enough already" added Rainbow Dash.
Twilight giggled in response "Maybe you're right. Hey, by the way, where are all the others?"
"Applejack just went to the 'Test your Strength' game

The ghost of my past
For me has come at last
Curses that have been cast
Thrown at my heart , left for it to blast
I still remember those joyful days
When I was able to look at her with grace
And we ran in different ways
Losing ourselves in our own maze
But nowadays I only feel loneliness and sadness
Driving my mind into madness
Now I'm stuck in this blackness
Causing my eyes and heart blindness
And when I saw the rain
It made my heart scream in pain
I know I lost the love train
And I am forever trapped by this dark chain
I wish I could die
And reunite with her in the sky
And together once again fly
But now I can only cry
I once made you a promise
To stay together forever, my goddess
But I was consumed by this darkness
Sadly making me heartless
I miss you so badly
I want you so madly
But, like always, so sadly
It will be cruel, well, hardly
Fair well my love
We shall meet again above
Until this curse from me is removed
And finally our love will be proved....

I want to see you
I want to hold you in my arms
I want to hear you
And enchanted by your charms
In the night or day
Our souls will meet
I will find a way
For our love to be complete
For you I will die
For you I will leave it all
I don´t want to see you cry
You just need to call
I can´t stand it anymore
To see you drop tears
Follow me through this door
So I can free you from your fears
You used to call me 'friend'
Until I looked into your eyes
And our hands touched again
Both of our hearts soared into the skies
But our love was not correct
It was forbidden
And we should never have met
But we took the risk and our love was hidden
War came and I had to leave
We were separated again
But I never stopped to believe
That our love would above all remain
In the battlefield I only watched the moon
It reminded me what I missed
I promise we'd be together soon
And I'd see the lips that I'd kissed...

La Princesa Celestia le contó a Twilight un secreto profundo, en su vida personal. Adivinen qué... TENIA UN HIJO SEGÚN ELLA!!!!
Cuando Luna y yo estábamos juntos en Equestria nació de mi cuerpo alguien que marco mi vida pero no era cualquiera, sentía que algún día llegaría mi legado..... mi hijo. Lo llamé Celestial Slayer, el príncipe sabio.
Sabio porque, jeje, era igual que tú Twilight. Aunque era muy tímido y sensible como todos, además muchos se confundían como una niña pero no, es masculino genéticamente. Y michos decían
"Que linda esta su hija princesa" o "Un milagro celestial y de su nombre"
Aunque el término Celestial Slayer (traducción Asesino Celestial) era un toque masculino, ademas no me arrepentía de haberle puesto Slayer, porque cuando llegó a su niñez desarrolló un hechizo, que cuando lo usaba, sus patas delanteras tenían dedos pero de luz, de su poder, sabiendo dibujar con sus manos y escribir con la magia de su cuerno al mismo tiempo. No es que yo lo explotaba pero a él
