They say that time heals all wounds. But that's not true. Sometimes, time only causes the wound to festerto become infected and burn with the fire of loss.
I have told this story at least a hundred times. And every time is like opening the wound afresh and squeezing a lemon into it. So now, I write it down on paper so that those who wish to hear the tale may read of it. For I will never tell this story again.
It was the year 1903, and Dust roared across the vast farm fields of Missouri. In those days, I was the head of a small family owned farm in a rural community. The summer had been hot and dry and a particularly severe drought had

I'll never forget the day I first saw her. Never.
I mean you're thinkin' to yourself 'How'd somepony like you end up with somepony like her? When did this whole shebang start?' Well, that's what I'm gonna tell ya. And it's not the sort of thing you'd expect.
Okay, so there I was one day - wanderin' down a street, not really doin' anything when suddenly I hear this quiet sound, just barely loud enough for my ears to pick up. Sounded kinda like one of them violin things but deeper. At the time I thought it was a kinda neat sound - might make for a good sample to use in my next mix - so I go follow it, right

Princess Luna may enter your dreams,
To enlighten your nightmare,
and end all the screams.
But who can wake her up at night,
when our nightmares are too much to bear?
Maybe our dreams just might give her a fright.
Even our worst fears may be too much for her too take.
Our phobias could become her own if given the chance.
Let's hope our visions don't make her heart ache.
Next time you wake and your imagination comes to an end,
Thank Princess Luna for taking the stance,
For it is her, whose pschye must now bend.
Now there she lay, tucked in bed all warm,
ready to rest in her blissful lair.
And our fears manifest in a full fledge s

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 o

Canterlot's silent, evening streets were not graced by the moon's rays, as a thick veil of storm clouds blocked it from view. The calm before the storm was chilling, the entire world holding its breath in anticipation of the first drop of rain.
And when it fell, it came in torrents, crashing over rooftops and spilling into overflowing gutters. A streak of lightning illuminated the entirety of the peaceful capital, the violent rumble of thunder following quickly on its heels.
However, the solitary pony ensconced within the Canterlot Palace archives paid no mind to the storm outside. She'd come to the archives on a mission; a mission of which

Life without death is a curse,
Death without a life is a crime.
Either one quick song or a never ending verse.
Luna, the princess of the night,
Will forever live on past each life,
To rule over darkness but never see the light.
Then there's the ruler of the day,
The all mighty Celestia, to which we pray.
The only one who has seen both the black and the white, but never the grey.
We can never understand their pain,
or do what would be right.
For every life they rule, will one day die in vain.
They've lived this long,
neither to die.
They put on a straight face in our presence to make us feel strong.
But we'll never unde

#73) My best bro and I have been bronies for a while now. I would never bring up being a brony on purpose to anyone who didn't know. But now we're doing a project in Literature class, and my friend is doing his on how he became a brony. I don't think it's a good idea. In fact, I find it embarrassing. What should I do?
Answer: This is something that seems to happen reasonably often people become big fans of "Friendship is Magic", and then fancy teaching the world to sing by shedding light on it in a class.

I held in a growl watching Fluttershy panic in fear as she tried another loop. That pegasus is such a scaredy pony. It had been just about the same thing for the past hour or so. I'd demonstrate the trick Fluttershy would try, she'd panic, fall down, and whimper how sorry she was for failing. She's a pony that you can't seem to stay mad at, but she could be really aggravating at times, though.
Seriously though, I shouldn't be complaining. I was the one that had taken a day off weather duty to spend some time with Fluttershy and teach her

The shadowy alicorn landed in front of the steaming cave by the base of the volcano. Her wings folded against her side as she trotted closer, being careful not to slip on the mud and slick stones beneath her hooves. The air was filled with the stink of sulphur and the bubbling sound of pools of mud as they boiled in the oppressively hot and humid air. Taking as deep a breath as she dared of the stinking miasma she was surrounded by, she shouted into the cave as loudly as her prodigious voice would allow.

For it has been a month since you were defeated.
And from your distant place you cannot anymore
Wreak havoc on the world and the peace that now is.
Tonight I am certain that I won the battle
For it has been a year since I sent you away.
And even if they still are afraid of the night
People start to forget what the threat really was.
Tonight I start to think that you’re not coming back
Since for a whole decade you have been far away.
But in my glorious reign I do have the feeling
That somehow the throne room still remains half empty.
Tonight no one but me can still remember you

Even though it was a wonderful piece of craftsmanship, I deeply despite to wear it. But because of the fact that I was representing Equestria I had to do it.
The armor would not find any kind of use in open combat, because its true purpose was only to look good, at least it was my opinion. The entire remarkable item reminded me of a saddle but in

Quoting vacuous facts from where and whence.

Bathing in prismatic light
Awaking free at last
Able to move on my own, I'm back in control
Only blurred memories left
Glimpses of the past
In my dreams I still walk the surface of Moon
I saw my home
From where I stood
What once was my home
From my thousand-year room
Isolated on the Moon
Locked within the abyss of time
A voice echoed in my mind
A shadow reflecting life
Resentful thoughts enslaved my soul, my heart
How did it wish to break free
Torment the world once seen
How did I wish it to leave my soul, my heart

Then darkness came;
Was that the end…?
What waited were the graying walls
Lifeless city and kingdom
Is this the worth of my existence
Has nothing changed?
Am I alive and trapped in the death
Or dead and lost my afterlife
Was I ever anything else
Than these crippling chains around my neck
They say time had forgotten our life
Yet the scars are still fresh in my heart
