"Would you tell anypony if you knew the world was going to end?"
Twilight Sparkle paused in the middle of raising a steaming cup of cocoa to her lips and stared at Carrot Top. "The world? Going to end?"
Carrot Top just nodded, her face a blank slate.
Twilight took a quick sip before she replied. "Well, hypothetically speaking-"
"No," Carrot cut in, then softened her voice. "No, not just hypothetically. Please, think about this before you answer."
Twilight shook her head. "But there's so much I don't know." She rose to her hooves and paced back and forth across the hardwood of the library's floor. "Would it happen all at once, like an explosion, or would it be a few minutes, or hours, during which everypony would be scared?"
Carrot finally broke into a small smile. "I should have expected this." The smile dropped away as she answered, "All at once. About three and a half hours from now."
Twilight stopped and looked back and forth between Carrot Top's green eyes. The cup of cocoa hovered

Books clattered to the floor as volume after volume ricocheted off the walls and furniture. Many of the large bookshelves stood bare, and the few that remained were quickly losing their contents. Through the window a glint of light began to break over the horizon, shooting a sliver of golden light into the study. As the beam worked its way across the room it came to rest on a very frustrated unicorn pony. The glinting dawn came across her s

The rain whipped into them, bit hard, and the seabirds were forced lower.
As they crossed the lands beyond Equestria's borders the seabirds fought hard to make westerly, to cross the mountains to once again complete the migration that they and their ancestors had made for generations uncounted.
As they crested the mountains, moving into Equestria, their instincts told them something was wrong.
Equestria, though they could not know the name, was supposed to be a place of safety, of certainty a place where the randomness of weather and predators wa

"Thanks again for letting me stay over tonight, big sis!" The little white unicorn snuggled deeper into her sleeping bag, leaving nothing visible but her big green eyes peering out from the opening. A muffled giggle emanated from within the polyester cocoon.
Rarity couldn't help but giggle herself; her sister's antics were just so adorable. She put on a warm smile, and replied, "Of course, Sweetie Belle, any time. After all, that's what family is for, is it not?" The diamond-flanked unicorn continued buttoning up the house for the night. Going over to make sure the window was locked, she shivered. "My, oh my, it certainly is cold out tonight." Glancing through the frosty pane, she glimpsed the misty stre

The Morphing Grid: an energy field that exists throughout the universe. Unknown in it's origin and connection, it is the balance in the battle between good and evil and the key in which the power to fight against the forces of darkness are locked. There are many who have access and knowledge in regards to the power of the Morphing Grid, but very few seem to fully understand it's composition and the means by which it can be utilized. Until recent times, it had been believed that prior to the battles conducted in the name of space wizard Zordon and his eventual death, leading to the accessibility of Ranger powers on the planet Earth, humanity had no knowledge or understanding of how to access the Morphing Grid. However, recent research and discoveries show that the human knowledge and understanding of this mysteri

"Please... not this again." The words barely whisped away from Twilight Sparkle's mouth, too fragile to carry themselves across the open air. The landscape at her hooves was foreign, yet intimately familiar. An open field that stretched far beyond any Equestrian horizon. Perfectly trimmed blades of grass, shimmering in reflected hues of purple and scarlet. A sky cracked open, alive and bleeding. A single glance upon it, and the heavens would swallow up even the most grounded and conceited of ponies. Lost forever in the great swirling cosmos abroad.
Twilight squeezed her eyes shut, and pressed her head into the ground. She could feel each blade of grass, as they tickled at her nose and cheeks. But they had no scent. Nothing had a taste here; nothing had a smell. Everything was just a feeling, a little voice in the back of her head, gently urging h

EPISODE 1: CHAOTIC MAJESTY
Another crisis averted, the Doctor thought to himself as he leaned against the railing beside the TARDIS console. He had just finished saving the Titanic; not the actual seafaring Titanic, but a Titanic, a Titanic financed by a certain Max Capricorn. Emotions still swam in the corner of his mind. He couldn't help but remember all of those who died beside him; every single companion of his who risked his or her life to protect the Doctor. He glared intently at the console, watching as Gallifreyan text scrolled across the command unit. Haunted, he was, by the memory of her voice. She only wanted to see the stars; at least she got her wish in the end.
Suddenly, a massive explosion rocked the TARDIS. The Doctor stumbled as he tried desperately to hold onto the railing. With a single, swift motion he slammed himself onto the console, adjusting the shields, tuning the stabilizers, repositioned the tunneling matrix; but it was no good, the shaking was too much. He s

"I'd say, but something's wrong with Ponyville! More importantly something's wrong with the sky!" Susan sat up and looked all around her. Sure enough the sky itself was gone.

The Captain of the Galleon struggles to sit up; as the sight hits him like a ton of bricks.
The entire area seemed to be a coastal pass. He could hear the water wave brushing up against the rocky downside of the hill he was on. The light breeze hit the lapels on his jacket ever so softly.

Please stop throwing things at me and let me explain.
Many people have asked why guys my age, and even older, like the show at all.
Well after thinking about it for a while I found I honestly couldn't immediately respond to the query. On first glance, it's bloody difficult to think why it would be liked the way it is. It's so cutesy and bright and colourful and unmanly, so normally it would be avoided like the plague. Hey, at first, I'D tried avoiding it like the plague.
But then I sat down and watched it. And I loved it. But in response to the query I wasn't sure why.
But after much deliberation, I'm prepared to make a half-arsed attempt at responding to people's questions and justify the opinions of Bronies everywhere. Mind you, the findings I my discuss here probably aren't the reasons why some people may like MLP, but as I said, the attempt is half-arsed, so feel free to post your findings in the comments below.

The Pursuit of CandyThe pursuit of candy is no trivial thing.The Pursuit of Candy8 years ago in Humor More Like This
The persistent idea that it was such, commonly spread by adults who are clearly suffering from a serious sugar deficit, is a symptom of the unfortunate tendency of the boring and dull to claim that the traits of their cardboard-flavored lives were, in fact, the trappings of 'adulthood,' and anything that tastes good, is fun, interesting, explosive, shiny or cool is the exclusive property of children, and not worth diverting one's attention from the financial pages to notice or pursue. Such people usually spend a lot of time planning to become wealthy by careful investment in oatmeal stocks and unsweetened tea futures. They also tend to wear beige cardigans, frown a lot and attempt to chase small children from their property for serious infractions such as playing games involving balls, running and laughing.

Shed alone at night

But gone are the pages
Written with notes of joy,
And the unadultered words
Of love, lie unread.
