RARITY enters library, sees BERRY PUNCH at table reading, approaches TWILIGHT SPARKLE by the shelving.
Twilight, you are aware that she is in your library, are you not? I thought she was banned permanently after the, uh...incident...
Who, Berry Punch? It's OK, Rarity! Turns out it was a simple misunderstanding that could be fixed with a proper labeling system.
RARITY looks on as TWILIGHT affixes a label to a shelf reading: "Shelving not to be used for micturition purposes."
Besides, I need her help for a magic spell I'm working on.
From the background RARITY looks disdainfully at BERRY PUNCH in the foreground as the latter drains a bottle of wine while reading "The Grapes of Wrath".
She's helping you with magic?
TWILIGHT and RARITY talking heads, while Twilight motions to complicated diagrams and periodic tables.
Yes! I've been assigned a classic alchemy problem: turning lead into gold! But it's never been done before be
In some places, grasses growIn some places, grasses growIn some places, grasses grow8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Though all the world is rotting,
Dry roots crumble under concrete bastions of sin
Still breeze through ancient tree limbs plays an ambient tune
One which one might sit and watch the world die to.
Yet in some places, grasses grow,
Small living worlds erupt in dead universal space
Old masters call it mold,
But there is no fertile land now where so many seeds could be sown.
Seasons pass and take the grass, and it will not emerge anew.
Rather more will somewhere else be seen.
In these times,
when green grass you find,
Stay and sit before its gone.
Ignore old masters blind to the times
who send you seeking hopeless ventures of the golden age.
In these times,
when green grass you find,
Stay and sit, and in your mind
the small quarter circle may,
turn the song of the breeze into a wistful summer tune
of a new world, just breathing,
ready to behold.
These last little places,
these last smiling faces,
as the old world grows old.
We will evolve to seek the dead,
Two BoysWhoever it was who initiated the SCRAM could not have foreseen the consequences of his actions. All he knew was that things weren’t right, and the reactor had to be shut down. The power should have gone down. It didn’t.Two Boys8 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The boy is short, even for a three-year old, and in his good moods, the staircase is a challenge. It remains fun throughout, a mountain to be scaled. When his moods are more sour, its shadow is much longer, more portentous. The second scariest moment in his short life was seeing those stairs for the first time, and knowing just how often he would have to make that climb. He wanted to cry, but shuddered to explain the purpose of his tears: to regress, to lose the ability to walk, so that he could be carried to safety by the more capable adults.
The scariest moment in his short life was his first interaction with the neighbors’ dogs. They had a pair of labs: one chocolate, one golden. On all fours, they are almost taller than the boy. When they stand up
A Brony goes to Ponyville and Scares Everyone P4Upon entering the cottage, Brownie breathed in the air. His clothes have not been changed in a while and he was used to the smell of his own musky sweat but he then thought nothing of it. Fluttershy was calling for her "Friends" to come out and see the new arrival. Brownie went over to the far side of the cottage with that same stupid half open mouthed toothy smile on his face. anyone else's cheeks would feel a terrible pain at the constant smiling but not our Brownie!

In the 2 minutes it took Fluttershy to call her little friends Brownie couldn't take his eyes off Fluttershy's Buttocks, He then felt a tugging on his trouser leg, and in a nervous reaction he kicked his leg back and then heard a dull thud behind him.
"UUGH!, what was that!?", Shrieked Brownie as he looked behind him to see a small Rabbit rubbing his head and making rude Gestures towards him.

He cries out, hoping a nearby mystical Pony related Entity could pick up his pleas through the basement where his "Computer Dungeon" is, Our Brave knight (Which will now be called "Brownie" because I really cannot be bothered to think up enough heroic terms for this guy) then calls it a night and sleeps in his chair, he opens his eyes after what appears to be five minutes and for no apparent and or logical reason he finds himself in the Everfree forest!A Brony goes to Ponyville and Scares Everyone9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

"It's freezing..." I complained quietly to myself less than a minute after leaving the train. I had deliberately allowed Clemency and her husband to leave the train before me, as I had no wish of getting into another hostile conversation with the stallion. He had loosely threatened me it really was quite uncalled for but it was hardly surprising given the locals of Manehattan. In the richer areas, especially the plaza district that Clemency had mentioned she was heading to, the ponies tended to be arrogant and possessive. I was glad that I would be spending no more time interacting with her and her crazy prison warden. I allowed for them to climb off of the train, both of them using magic to carry their luggage, and was most relieved when they set off in a different direction to myself. I fumbled around with the map that I had brought with me, my clumsy hooves almost tearing it whilst attempting to unfold it. It was one of those impossibly-f

Cadence is crying hysterically and Shining is repeating "I know" in a reassuring tone, obviously they're going on about Brownie and how damn awkward he is.

Brownie enters his room The balcony doors were open with a silent breeze caressing the pure white net curtains, the great moon illuminated through the open doors casting a beautifully eerie glow on one side if the room, the skies outside were a beautiful deepest navy blue, dotted with stars, clouds slowly moved across the open sky in a slow and somewhat soothing glide. Any other man who finds himself in Equestria would not think twice about spending hours just gazing at the sheer enchanting serenity of the Equestrian skies, not our Brownie though, as soon as he saw the open do

Brownie opened each one and sniffed them.

Can you tell I'm losing sleep?
What am I supposed to do?
It's hard to stay cool
When you smile at me
What am I supposed to do?
When I lose my cool
I don't know what to do
I get nervous every time you speak...
You don't mean no harm
You're just doing
...you really freak me out...
I'm so afraid of you
When I look in your eyes
I tend to lose my thoughts
But don't forget your stare
Oh, what was that you said?
Would you let me know?
Cause I can't read your mind
I want to know what's going on in that
Pretty little head of yours
Man, you really freak me out

my ghost story for classI ran down the lane while the storm started to get worse. I felt my legs turn to jelly, and my hands become loose. My conscience telling me to turn around. My body having a mind of its own. Down this lane was said to be a church, that's where I was told to go and wait for my brother.my ghost story for class3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
When I got there the church looked unholy. The blue shadow crept out as if trying to reach me. The dust swirled around unnaturally. The rain started to get heavier so I had to go in. Inside wasn't pretty. There were the old seats there that had some stains on them. The cross looked down with fear as I noticed it. There wasn't much to do so, I went to sit down. My brother must have been taking his time, we were suppose to be meeting my mother for her birthday.
I took a good look at the bible in front of me. The pages were rotting off and the ink was dripping out. On the edge I could see a bit of red. The air was getting colder; at that point I got up to look at the stairs. Some of them

Something traumatic has happened
That has sent you off the deep end
I sit in my life boat and cast out a line
It is so dark and scary, drifting in and out of time
I call to you and I get no reply
I close my eyes and ask you why
Why did you dive in so deep
Please allow yourself to keep
The memories of the good days
When things were easy in simple ways
Now it is doctor after doctor
Medicine, one right after the other
Your beautiful eyes are cloudy grey
Your sparkle has gone away
Take is slow and easy, one step at a time
One foot after the other just like a rhyme
You are shaky on your feet
Like a newborn foal so sweet
One step at a time my precious child
When you are weak, but your soul is wild
One step at a time my dear one
For one day soon you will run

I do not know the reason why
sometimes girls just have to cry
It may be a cute baby
or a sad movie, maybe
sometimes the tears just come
lots of girls come undone
people stop and stare
but they are everywhere
on the bus or in their home
they just want to be left alone
some guys wonder and dare to question
was it something I did or forgot to mention
Of course the answer is always the same
you'll never know the rules to our game
after our cry is over and done
it will be a long time before another one
when it comes, don't ask why
I do not know why sometimes we cry

Today we're going to the fair
To ride on rides that take you high in the air
We get to win prizes and play games
Win stuffed animals and give them names
We'll ride on the spider and the gravitron
Eat cotton candy carmel apples and have lots of fun
Stand in line and talk with friends
Never wanting the day to end
Hoping that the rain stays at bay
That would ruin a perfect day
Go through the freak show
Hoping theres no one in there you know
Drinking slushies and eating funnel cakes
Seeing how many tokens each thing takes
Checking in with your family every once in a while
They know you are safe by the painted on smile
On your way home when the long days done
Wait again until next year for it to come
FrankieFrankieFrankie4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We had a turtle we named Frankie
As turtles go he was quite snazzy
He liked to eat worms and bits of ham
Tried to bite my kitties and sometimes a hand
We found him on a trip one day
Brought him home, what can I say
I felt bad because his home was a tote
When he was dreaming of a pond, under a boat
My daughter loved him with all her heart
She worried about him when they were apart
She would hold him and sing to him too
I don't know if he liked it, do you
It broke her heart to let him go free
Live long and safe and lots of love Frankie.
Love HurtsLove HurtsLove Hurts4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Sometimes I feel lost and alone
With no one else just on my own
I have weird feelings of losing you
Well maybe you just never knew
Everytime I begin to trust
I end up falling in love
With uneasy feelings and alot of doubt
I'm finding out what loves about
The pain you feel together and apart
Makes it hard on ones heart
Some say live and learn
Play with fire and you'll get burned
Some say that love is just a game
You're just a pawn that bears a name
Love is a word spoken from inside
Letting the heart be your guide
No matter what people say
Love should prosper day by day
Love is something two people share
Another way to say I care
Love can also burn the soul
And in your heart leave an empty hole
Love can take you far away
To different places every day
When your trip has long ended
Your soul will feel new and mended
Sometimes to the point of no return
Love is something everyone should learn

You sat in the field forever and a day
So many times someone wanted to haul you away
I used to sit and stare at you
dreaming of you in red or blue
Your eyes shining like we were friends
You begging me until the end
I washed your face and shined your smile
I know for me you would go that extra mile
You let out all your deep dark secrets
None told to me you would ever regret
You wait for me like a faithful friend
Just know that we are til the end
I tell you my troubles and sing you a song
You just keep them coming and sing along
You cradle me and make me feel safe and secure
With you I know no matter what I will endure
When the sun shines on you and you can't hide
It makes my heart so full of love and pride
Some of my friends have jealousy and play games
When I am with you I feel no shame
Built for me out of love and affection
