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 once more for good measure. She did not have to go through with the final whip, as the two simpletons had begun to move twice as fast as they previously were. Snips craned his head back towards the unrelenting whip wielder.
"But wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?" he asked nervously, his voice higher than usual.
Trixie's head snapped up and he

Devil in a Tailcoat
"Yes my Lord," the words roll off my tongue with ease.
In anyone's eyes I am a humble servant wanting to please.
Together we've created an impenetrable shell,
No one would believe when this ends I'll drag you to hell.
Enduring any and all humiliation,
I follow your commands with out protestation.
Together we're rising to the task,
Come now Lord, let's put on our masks.
I'll groom you, I'll guide you, I'll guard you,
But nothing is honorable in what I do.
Yours is the pure soul which must remain,
Something everyone seems too eager to obtain.
Time continues to ebb and flow
Not soon before long my efforts will show.
Watching from the shadows with arrogance and greed,
Not soon before long you'll fill my sinister need.

WHY ITS GOOD SOME VILLAINS GOT REFORMED AND WHY ITS GOOD SOME OTHERS DID NOT.
I think this whole "Freak out"-thing the Community is having right now about the Return and Reformation of some Villains in the Show is a bit exaggerated...
Just because three villains became good, doesn't mean they are going to reform EVERY kind of villain now.
Night Mare Moon had to turn back to normal because she is the Royal Princess of the Night, Celestias Sister. And even if Celestia could have continue bringing Day and Night by herself, Equestria needs to stay in balance with the two of them. Everybody loves Luna and the first episode would have been weird if they just KILLED Night Mare Moon. But Luna is not the point because nobody ever compared about her Transformation. But still, Luna is also a Villain who got reformed.
Trixies return was already planned after her very first Episode and for me her return was nothing surprising because she didn't really learn her lesson the las

Give me a Chance
Give me a chance to love and hope,
Please whisk my troubles away.
Give me a chance to be forgiven,
To stand at the edge of dawn and day.
Give me a chance to watch time pass by,
not letting my time slip through.
Give me a chance to fly through the wind,
Up to the Sky of Blue.
Give me a chance to reach the sparkling stars,
The heavens high above.
Give me a Chance to be myself,
And be myself to be loved...

That's what they say,
So I start dieting,
And starving myself,
To follow their way.
"You have a disorder,
If you look too skinny."
So that's what I do,
I start to gain,
But it doesn't feel the same,
How much do I even weigh?

If you still don't wear make-up."
I start to wear make-up,
But I don't feel pretty,
I feel like I'm suffocating,
My mom takes pity.

You'll look like a slut."
I stop wearing make-up,
They want everything,
Instead of messing people up,
Why can't they chose something.

Hold it in with a sigh."
I dry my tears,
I can't show my fears,

Slamming the decaying wooden door shut behind him, I focused with concerned eyes as Stephano deliberately slid down to the floor, panting heavily.
"I knew you were telling me to go the wrong way!" Stephano exclaimed, clasping me tightly in his clenching fingers, squeezing my fragile being.
"I'm sorry Stephano! I'm sorry. . . " I murmured as he stood, regaining his breath and clearly ignoring me as he placed his golden scimitar away, causing me to whine.
"Aw, come on, be a bro Stephano.." I complained as he continued to ignore me even further, stretching his long limbs above his head tiredly.

No one ever did.
I pressed my hands up against my ears; the voices were talking to me again. Yelling. Screaming. I couldn't stand it any longer; I was done.
Rushing out of my room and down the stairs, I wiped away the tears that had formed in my eyes. They'd already started to slide down my cheeks. I hated it.

I needed to calm down, I needed to stop, I needed to sit down and just breathe.
But I couldn't.

Rain flooded the streets, the drains unable to lower the water level fast enough. Down the street a green camaro with black racing stripes hurled around the corner. The driver, Kevin Levin, slammed his foot down on the gas pedal, roaring down the street.
He slammed on the brakes near the end of the street, parking the vehicle and flinging his door open. He stepped out, yanking his keys free, heart hammering anxiously in his chest as he slammed the door shut, the vehicle automatically locking.
Kevin was drench, soaked to the bone in mere seconds. He hurried around his car, and as soon as he set foot on the sidewalk the door to the Tennyson residence flung open. From the opening

HP: The One Who CaredDraco Malfoy couldn't breathe. He couldn't think. It was like the entire world was him and his mission and the huge, looming failure that hung over them both. Honestly, he was in such a daze lately that he hadn't even realized Valentine's Day was coming, and if it hadn't been accompanied by a Hogsmede visit it might have passed him by entirely without him ever noticing. As it was, he was just glad to have some time to himself, so that he didn't have to pretend everything was fine. Even Crabbe and Goyle, tired of guarding him when he wouldn't tell them what he was doing, tired of being disguised as little girls, and maybe even tired of him, had gone on the trip, which meant he was even more alone than usual. It was actually sort of nice. Wandering around the castle's empty corridors, he felt more relaxed than he had in months.

Compassionless. Heartless. Emotionless.
Those are some of the words an Irken smeet learns as soon as its PAK become functional. I remember when I first heard these words, I had always wondered what they meant. Other Irken's seemed to understand them right away, but not me. Nope, not Zim.
Whenever I had asked my Tallests about these words they had acted weird towards me. Not in the usual weird way they act because of my superiority but because of something else I could never figure out in my amazing head. Other Irken's called me hurty words and laughed at me. Apparently these words were important to all Irken's and the whole Empire. But I had always wondered why. Quite often I had heard the word the Dib-shit had just called me, mostly mentioned when I was near my Tallests, or high-ranking Irken's, but I had never realized it may have been directed towards me. Defective. That was that stupid word. I had some idea of what it meant. It meant a bad Irken. One that had a PAK that
