#104) Aren't bronies and furries the exact same thing? I think it's funny that so many bronies get offended when they're compared to furries. I don't see furries getting quite as offended about the comparison. Hah.
Answer: This is really the million-dollar question: are bronies and furries the same thing? The answer is, awkwardly, a little bit of both. Let's set the cards upon the table: there are all sorts of variables that come into the equation when defining exactly what a brony is. That's the first difficulty; if a brony is merely an adult watching the show, then you can't effectively argue that they're furries by definition just for doi

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

MY LITTLE PONY: EYES AND HOURGLASSESChapter II: "The Welcome Wagon Comes to Town" Written by Diane N. Tran
For the first time in her mail-mare career, the pegasus named Derpy Hooves was late in a delivery. That delivery consisted of one single, solitary letter to be dropped off at the very last residence of her rounds, Ponyville's Old Clock Tower. When she arrived at the building, she was, of course, as punctual as ever, but the mail-box was still missing from the lawn and she didn't have the courage to knock on the door again.
Dressed in her saddlebags, pacing back and forth, she was at a loss of what to do at the moment, so she paced s

Children of the Perished Empire…
The crystal spike
Emerged in the northern sky.
From thousand years of sleep
Woken the empire of past,
The world once perished and gone.
It looms in the north…
The echoes of cold dominance.
The king, the tyrant reborn
Waiting his renewed chance
To finish what had begun…
Drifting shells of the realm…
What's there… left… to protect…
What's left are filled with hurt and grief.

Tower rose in the winter night
Traveler's beacon in the arctic fields
Once it shone from the northern land
Mellowing the coldest of winds
"No constraints of flesh
May prevent my revival
My day of return will come
From the deep ice I rise once more…"
City that glows in light
Shining realm of knowledge and arts
Power from deepest of ties
Shimmered under the stars
Empire of the crystal kin
Until the days turned dark
Faded the lights into dim
I still remember the golden days, Em

As the festivities continued uninterrupted below, the winged pony ascended the stairwell and went through each room of the building, floor by floor — kitchen, bedroom, library, stockroom, and whooooaaaaaa! She reached the top floor and her wall-eyes gazed around the sight of massive room that amassed a labyrinthine jungle of the rusted cogs and jagged gears of the Old Clock Tower. The patchwork of holes left in the broken roof allowed glowing beams of sunlight to stream into the room, as a flock of white p

The big two-parter has arrived! And My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is kicking off with the Crystal Empire two-parter.
The first part is about Celestia giving Twilight the rather monumental test of finding a way to protect the Crystal Empire upon its mysterious return from the shadowy King Sombra (meaning shadow in Spanish).
And the second part is focuses more on Twilight finding the Crystal Heart which is key to stopping Sombra.
This two parter is easily the most visually stunning two-parter yet. Everything from movement to lighting to the absolutely gorgeous looking Crystal Empire is incredibly well-designed.

Time for part 2! Now I'll poke at some more specific aspects of the two seasons.
In my mid-season review, I nitpicked a bit about the ordering of the episodes and the respective focus each pony gets. And for the most part, I don't think a whole lot has changed since then. I still think that Season 2 needed a few more ensemble episodes, although I think it did start to pick up in the second half, what with episodes like "The Last Roundup" and "MMMystery on the Friendship Express". It's not a huge deal, though. The season spread doesn't really influence the quality of the

I can still see their smiles.
All my friends' familiar faces,
They stood here beside me at the eve of the gala.
Through this one night, all nights for years
Over the centuries, over the mortal lifetimes…
After gala I go to see my friends,
Meet them in their rest,
Give them my time…
This one night
I remember them, put flowers on their graves,
When they've left me
Where I cannot follow…
We had our days together.
Our laughter, rich and heartfelt.
In their company I felt peace:
Every moment's measureless ease,

Chapter Five: A Little Tender Loving Care
Smokey ceased dragging the mattress once it was positioned in front of the fireplace - at a safe distance from the flames, of course. He groaned deeply and gripped the fang wound stinging his arm, which was coated in his dark red blood, and it continued to seep the liquid of life. Adrenaline spiked by the need to tend to his wounds, he scurried into the bathroom. He returned with the familiar bottle of iodine held horizontally between his jaws and a white towel pressed against the bottom row of bite marks on his arm.

Derpy Hooves was Ponyville's neighbourhood mail-mare. When she was first hired for this job, there was a great deal sniggering all over Cloudsdale for hiring the ridiculous, little cross-eyed pegasus. Luckily for her, looks can be deceiving and, in time, she became the best mail-mare that Ponyville ever had.
Letter by letter, parcel by parcel, she would work her way from one end of town to the other, zipping from house to house, building by building, slipping envelopes into each mail-box and each mail-slot, and waving to each pony she passed by. Through

Smokey set a towel wrapped around a chunk of snow upon Fluttershy's forehead to help reduce the fever. Even though the pegasus' shuddering body revolted against having anything cold touch her, she knew it was what she needed to fight the fever. Her painkiller had worn off and the dull throbbing in her hoof added to her misery.
The dragon retrieved another pain pill and a glass of water for her. "Here you are, Miss Fluttershy. Another painkiller for your hoof."
Removing the makeshift ice pack from her forehead, Fluttershy slowly sat upright. She accepted the pro

When that failed they tried to over throw Celestia themselves. They failed miserably and were banned from Equestria and forced to fend for themselves. They built a town near the Everfree Forest.
When they had tried to free Discord they had found a bottle of dark magic. Once in the town they fought over who got it and how to use it. Tugging it in all directions they dropped it and it exploded on the ground. It surrounded the town like a force field and they realized that everypony who w

Discord laid his head on the soft cloud and sighed. He had caused more chaos than usual today, and he was exhausted. His mismatched eyes slowly shut as he began to enter dreamland. All of a sudden, the red and white phone next to him, bearing a silly face rang loudly, the red nose glowing. He picked it up after several rings."What is it?" Discord complained, a whiny tone in his voice. "A giant monster is invading Townsville! Help us, Powerpuffs!" a panicking mayor from another dimension shouted.

It can cause happiness as well as sadness, love as well as hatred, calming as well as insanity.
The wind is the controller of time and space. It can make days as long as years, and make stars disappear.
The wind is death as well as life. It is unwatchable and unreadable. All we can do is hope it spares us each day.

This place once full of happiness, now full of madness and the sounds of the deadly war machine leaving nothing but a charred earth behind.
The few that survive suffer a worse fate, for they are cast into the burning depths of the earth where no happiness can reach.
The cold fingers of death are now like walls within this dark unholy place, slowly closing around me until madness, murder, and death follow.

For my loved ones to come back, though I know they won't.
They have gone to the great land.
Not of this earth
But of their own.
So alone in sadness I must wait.
As I sit and think.
I can remember all the good they have done with me.
And I remember all the good I have done after they left.
So they cannot be gone.
Only not seen.
I cannot give in to this sadness.
I must rise up to the heavens
So now I go on to the light, with love and happiness in life
For I now know that they are not gone.
But living with me always.

And everything I hope for has been strangely set aside

And destiny is proving to be absent from my life

And I know you will never give up and die

All faults and insecurities are shining like the sun
Eyes are decieving
Your mind will stop breathing and

Sloshing through the blood
Of zombies that we've slayed
Through the gobs of goo

Shrinking from the light
What fun it is to laugh and sing

Oh, Zombie bells, what a smell!
Bone and tendons fray,
Oh what fun it is to blow
A freakbag's ass away...
Oh Zombie bells, straight from hell
Oozing with decay...
Ring their bells with shotgun shells
And monkey bombs and blades!
