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

The cameras stopped rolling and everyone relaxed, letting out a collective sigh of relief.They had been re-filming the final scene for ‘Brycen-Man Strikes Back Harder‘ all day, and everyone looked collectively exhausted.
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.”
The brunette looked up at the assistant director, her blue eyes wide. “You think?”

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

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.

Like yeast in dough, I rose up high.
But soon, I ceased to fly.
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.
My simple plea?
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."
The Nords asked what treason this was,

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.

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.

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

Kid sighed as he put his on the pillow slowly. The nurse left the room slamming the door behind her. The reaper looked at the ceiling trying to think but the pain got worse as he tried.

This is why Cadian families are always numerous. One in two Cadians has been wounded in battle. There are no untouched inhabitants. As they are no unscathed zones.
