MY LITTLE PONY: EYES AND HOURGLASSES
Chapter 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 some more. If she left it on the doorstep, the wind could blow it away. If she slipped it underneath the doormat, it might not be seen. Then a thought came to her, perhaps she could squeeze the letter between the cracks of the door.
Placing the letter between he

#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 doing that. If you did, then any parent watching the show with their child, or anyone who watched "Watership Down" or "The Animals of Farthing Wood" as children, or myriad other cartoons about animals, would be furries, which is ludicrous.
Just watching "Friendship is Magic" doesn't create a latent association with furries, despite what s

The smell of sweat accompanied by jostling bodies and accomplished yells filled the Wonderbolts locker room, familiar to the fiery-maned mare who stood in the center of it all, a wide grin on her face. Seeing her teammates so excited after a successful practice session was one of her favorite parts about being the captain of the Wonderbolts. She knew the feeling of accomplishment that came with pulling off a particularly tough trick or sticking a landing after a daring dive, and she loved when her teammates--- her family--- felt the same joy... Even the more boastful ones.
"...and Fleetfoot totally would have crashed into the bleachers if I hadn't helped steer her toward the field," Tyco, of course--- who else---, pointed out with a smirk. The pale-coated stallion flicked his red and white tail at Fleetfoot's muzzle. "Isn't that right, Fatfoot?"
Fleetfoot snorted, nipping Tyco's tail and provoking a rather high-pitched yelp from the large pony. "Fatfoot? Really?" She rolled her

Chapter III: "Making Friends"
Written by Diane N. Tran, with original song by Rachel Rambach
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 pigeons fluttered out. The walls hung with hundreds of clocks, clocks of all kinds, all different shapes and sizes, ticking and tocking in all different ways. Position

The creature that was lurking in the sewers of Marehime was no more. I was on the way *home* constantly trying to avoid the main street; even if I knew that nopony would be outside during that late time. The stain of the sewers followed me like it would be a fellow companion, while I was walking through the alleys that did not smell any better. Pain spread all over my body, paying the tribute of the flask I have used before the fight.
My sight started to get worse but gladly my *home* was not far away. With the remaining power that was still in my weaken body I entered the wealthy building that was outstanding others that were surrounding it. As expected the servants were already asleep, what was a good thing because I would not like them to smell that odor. Slowly it started to become a very annoying burden for my sensitive senses. My own steps sounded surprisingly loud on the wooden floor while I moved towards the public bath, which was in the lower section of

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

For those who would want to know about my OC he was part of a group of pegasi that were banished deep into the Everfree Forest after Discord was defeated by Celestia, and Luna. The reason for this was they liked the world while Discord was in power so much they tried to overthrow Celestia and Luna, and free Discord. Needless to say they failed horribly, after being banished to the Everfree Forest these cold hearted ponies started a society. It was run as if Discord was still in power. It was full of crime and disorder. If there were good hearted ponies among them, they through them out to fend for themselves in the Everfree Forest, so many were forced to masquerade as the cruel- hearted ponies.
Moonwing had tried to do so out of fear of the Everfree Forest, but he was simply too warm-hearted, shy, and timid to do so. He was harassed constantly as a result, not to mention he had not yet got his cutie mark yet. On his tenth birth day he still had no cutie mark, but he was able to fly for

There is a group of rebels who all have a certain evil look to them. They loved the way Discord ruled so they tried to free him after he was turned to stone. 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 walked in the town was given a special power (different from cutie mark power). Even with their special powers they knew they would still need more to defeat Celestia. So they all lived on in the town recruiting more members and learning more battle techniques.
One day Soundwave was born in the town with the standard evil look of all the ponies livin

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. "I think you have me confused for someone else," the draconequus awkwardly replied. "I'm Discord, the spirit of chaos and disharmony, not a "powderpoop" or whatever the heck you call it." "But we need HEEELP.." The mayor's voice faded as he was picked up by the monster and ground up into bits. The draconequus hung up shortly afterwards. "Fine," Discord replied, knowing the mayor was already dead. "But after this, I'm going to return that phone to those people on eNeigh."
Illusionary to PinkiedashRainbow Dash landed softly on the floor and let herself being surrounded by (the once pink) white foggy smoke. In front of her stands a cyan Pegasus with rainbow colored mane and tail, it’s back facing towards her. It didn’t look at her, because it was focused on an approaching pink earth pony.Illusionary to Pinkiedash9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Dash knew exactly who they were, but she had a hard time to remind herself that this is a hallucination of somepony else, the one she pulled this prank on, her best friend.
She watched as the illusionary Rainbow Dash waited for the illusionary Pinkie Pie to come closer. Both the illusions had exactly the same identifications, but Pinkie’s illusion changed suddenly… Her hair became straight and her coat darkened.
Rainbow Dash shook her head out of confusion.
‘Pinkie with straight hair? How is that even possible?! I could have sworn I saw this before…’
“Dashie, is that you?” A tear rolled down the dark pink cheek.

It was Heart and Hooves day, a day where mares and colts love each other on that day. But, Pinkie didn't have a love or somepony she COULD love. At 5:50 AM , she saw the sun rise in the Everfree Forest. "I always love the sunrise, it is so,so,pretty." Pinkie said. Pinkie went back to bed and went to sleep so, she can have energy to keep her hyper-like self. It was 7:00 Am when she woke up again, Pinkie thought she would go prank Dashie or, she would help somepony in need. There was a scream of help in Ponyville! It was Dashie's scream of help! She ran outside and saw Tank, Dashie's pet turtle about to be dropped off the cliff! It was Gilda again in Ponyville!

Her friends do their best to keep up her cheer,
But the Sun Celebration is soon drawing near.
She knows that she'll preform now that she's been crowned,
So she takes back to the air... before eating the ground.
We then cut to a scene with the six and stained glass,
As Rarity reminds what has now come to pass.
Her friends have to leave but they say they still care,
Promising with a hug and a Pinkie Pie swear.
The group takes the train from the high society,
Leaving Twilight with Spike and her own anxiety.
She's soon seized with panic 'til Celestia arrives,
Before she's then told a tale about divergent lives.
Her princess had been hurting year after year,
As her sister was banished, made an object of fear.
But Luna was reformed and scorned no longer,
As the bonds between princesses grow ever stronger.
Celestia leaves the pair to trot back to her room,
When a black tentacle seems to spell o

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.
And surprisingly enough, darker as well. As in, there was more liberal use of black and shadows this time around, giving some pivotal scenes more atmosphere.
This willingness to be 'dark' just means that kids get a more well-rounded entertainment. They're gonna' have to use the potty on their own one day after all.
However, that's also the double-edge sword with Crystal Empi

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, Empire of the North
Beacon of unity and love
Crystal Heart their guiding light
Realm of peace now tortured
Enslaved under your will
Tarnished the hearts of joy
How could you let it be ruined…
Seeds of their misery, countless distraught l
