Toph sniffed the warm vapors, taking in the grassy scent. She clutched her tired fingers around the cup, savoring the heat the seeped through her calloused skin.
"Thanks," she breathed out, her eyelids having slid closed.
"You're welcome," Zuko replied, pouring his own cup. He paused, caught off guard by this brief moment of serenity in Toph's face. Her eyes closed, a peacefully neutral expression about her...Her hair was a complete mess, of course, and her outfit was...somewhat lacking in pizazz, but in that short-lived moment, Zuko found himself acknowledging that despite Toph's best efforts, she was growing into a fine young woman. The dirt, the untamed hair, and the foul, snarky looks held that fact back, and in turn, drove aw

The director took the microphone from his assistant. “I think we've got it done right this time, well done everybody!”
A collective cheer went up and everyone applauded before straying off to do their jobs and prepare the film for the public release. One of the stars of the movie leant over and pressed her palms onto her knees before walking over to the chairs and promptly collapsing.
The blonde assistant director came over and offered her a glass of water. “You did amazing Mei. I won’t be surprised if you win an award for your acting in the film.”

Today I learned a lesson about bullying and ponies who aren't perfect. Every pony is perfect just the way they are, no matter what, because if Derpy is being bullied, other ponies are too. Even if they can't change the way they are, they still have feelings. There is no reason to bully anyone because they get confused or they didn't know what they did wrong. All Derpy is trying to say to all of us is...
I Love You All Perfectly the Way You Are. Please Accept Who I Am.

If you any of you reading this knows me, chances are you’ll know I've gone on about this a thousand times, but check the title, because this is essay (if you can call it that) is going to be about that very subject. So really, this is your change to turn around.
As the title states, yes, I have a real grudge against the popular hive and subsequent hive-mind fanon that many have come up for the Changeling species in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Why? I mean, after all, the Changelings are at least part insectoid in appearance, as well as taking orders from a larger-in-size Queen and so a hive society and hive-mind does make sense or is at least rather fitting, right?
Well, to some extent, I think both yes and no. True, the Changelings are at least part insect and the whole Bee People, Hive-Mind concept has its place in popular culture, especially when it comes t

Nevertheless, A.E.D couldn't help the scowl pulling at his lips as he and the other prefects all got to work on clearing the crowd of rowdy teens (not that he, himself, wanted to). They still had the last class of the day, though everyone seemed more intent in seeing whatever was so damn interesting in their Headmaster's office instead. Even as they were herded away from the door, the excitement laced through the air wasn't dissipating.
"Alright, get to class." .D ordered a small group of ninth years, them scattering rather quickly at the command before the fang-banged prefect caught sight of a familiar pair of red goggles. These very goggles were perched atop a messy pile of ebony locks.

Soon I was caked in my own demise.
Baked into this pastry disguise.
But thou hath set me free.
With a bite, munch, crunch. 1, 2, 3.
I hath been set free, but thou hath consumed me.
Not 1 but 2.
Mine own eyes seeing only what be in front of thee.

To escape from this catacomb that surrounds me.
Oh, Silly mare.
With your eyes drooping and your heart beating.
Your bags filled with letters and your mind in gutters.
Wings of grey.
A mane like sunshine.

The Changeling Kingdom, or the 'Motherland' as the species often affectionately referred to it, was located far away from Equestria in the east, crossing plains, deserts and glaciers. It would take weeks worth of travel for any pony using non-magical means to reach the country, but once they did, they would definitely know.
It was a vast, depleted country, characterised by a desolate mountainous landscape which, during its infamously long, vicious winters, was always blanketed by thick layers of snow. The summer was not too pleasant, either; it sometimes got hot enough to kill scores off by heatstroke. The kingdom, especially as a mostly rural one, had its pluses like large forests and seas, but for the most part, it was the same greyed nightmare wherever you went. So as you can imagine, they did not do well in the tourism industry.
It was an established fact that the Changeling Kingdom was by no means the most modernised or wealthiest nation, even before the current mona

The Ash King
Far under the fiery mountain bold
To dungeons deep, and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the heart of our god
Dwarves of Resdayn made migthy spells,
Blade and hammer ringing like bells,
In places deep, where the dead sleep,
In the darkness of sixteen hells.
For peace with the Chimeri lords,
They gave two gleaming golden hoards,
They smithed with sound, and souls they bound
To wed lovers wielding twin swords.
But when the dwarves found a new faith,
They laughed in the Moon-and-Star's face.
With brass and songs in twisted tongues,
Built a golem and their own death.
Far under the fiery mountain bold
To dungeons deep, and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To claim our long-regretted god.
Then came the Devil of Dagoth
He spoke and said "Hear news I brought,
That in the dark, glimmers a spark,
By Dwemer hands, soon to be caught."

Gilbert stayed where he was under the sheets, body quivering a bit as he sensed the movements of the creature. Never could he see them but he could always sense them and how they moved. The German American swallowed thickly as it got closer and closer, reaching a hand out to grab his bed sheets when--
The door slammed open and the creature hissed before quickly slithering away back into the shadows. "You've already changed into your uniform and already are back in bed?" His brother growled out, their grandfather still at a business meeting in Travis County, Austin, Texas.
"I was hiding." He murmured.
"It." He stated, as if it answered the question to life.

I'm usually a patient pony. After all, research takes time, effort, and a lot of luck. But that means I'm still active. Right now, I'm passive, alone on this hospital bed, awaiting news of my prognosis, visits from my friends, and whether or not- whether or not Spike is okay. The same guilt that was plaguing me since I got here rose up again and I couldn't stop myself from seeing the accident again.
It was supposed to be a normal trip to Zecora's. I was researching the Everfree Forest as a hobby, and Spike, being my undoubtedly number one assistant, insisted he'd go with me. I think he still felt guilty over the 'greed turning him into a giant dragon' thing. Oh, Spike. So he could be a little bratty sometimes. He was always loyal when you needed him to be, and that loyalty made up for his immaturity in spades. Anyway, we had stopped by the Ponyville cafe for a quick bite and then we were on our way.

Hey, everypony! It's the end of June! You know what that means! It's graduation season for the high schoolers!!! And lemme start off by saying that graduation is the most boring thing ever. So here's how the ceremony goes: it starts off with the graduates making their grand entrance with their caps and their flowing, beautiful gowns and everypony stands up to honor them. And bear in mind that none of these guys cured cancer or made candy good for you. They basically just sat in class and didn't fail. Honestly, the best part about this part of the ceremony is watching all the girls as they attempt to walk in high heels across the grass. Okay, so everypony is seated and whoever's the master of ceremonies comes onstage and says something really generic about how we're all so excited to be here.

Such Stuff as Nightmares are Made On
Long, long ago, in the farthest, darkest depths of the universe, there arose a great blackness. A nameless, formless void of malevolence, it yearned to destroy all light and make the cosmos as dark as itself. Stretching its claws ever upward, it wove its way between the stars, blotting them out one by one. When by fate or by chance it came to a small world called Equestria, it sensed a power there unlike anything else it had known: two sisters, each governing a celestial body of the planet. The older and more powerful sister wielded the might of the sun itself and caused it to rise and set around the planet with her own will instead of a natural orbit. Likewise, the younger sister directed the moon and held he night as her domain. The blackness crept closer and closer to Equestria, hiding and observing from behind the moo
10 reasons Religion is Immoral1) You can't question faith.10 reasons Religion is Immoral5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The religious texts are believed despite mountains of evidence against them- If they were anything other than 'Holy' they would be sitting next to Harry Potter and Twilight right now. 'Because God said so' or 'Because I have faith' does not prove anything, anymore than me believing in Dragons because I saw one on a Welsh Flag and my flatmate told me the DO exist. It is also completely illogical for a society which relies in science to have such an attitude, I know enough from my boring statistics work that you need a LOT of evidence just to say 'this does not disprove the hypothesis'. But if I say 'you don't get healed by magic water' I'm ganna go to hell.
2) It stands in the way of scientific discoveries and evidence.
Religion prevents real science from being developed and understood by a significant amount of society, such as Geneses being taught in schools as fact, and Darwin being given as much regard as a crazy homeless man shouting in the street.
