Jake stirred awake, feeling his body still in its dragon form. He yawned and moved slowly, working the kinks out of his back. The mattress wasn't the most comfortable, but it was better than the concrete floor.
It was the next day after the changes had first started. Jakes Grandfather had taken him down to the harbor and led him to a warehouse just inside the waterfront. Inside crates of all sizes had been stacked up to the ceiling, nearly filling the room save for a small office area which Jakes Grandfather had told him he'd be sleeping in.
"G, are you serious?" Jake had said at the time, falling back to his slang out of habit, "There isn't even enough room to swing a skateboard, let alone stand up."
"Do not worry young one," Jakes Grandfather had noted patiently, "By the end of tomorrow, you won't have to worry about sleeping in there. But you must swear to me, that no matter what happens, you will not leave this building until the changes are done."

Caramel was running through the street in his neighborhood in Manehattan not paying attention to where he was going. The young colt was having too much fun tossing his ball into the air and bouncing it off of his nose to notice, and he certainly did not notice when he ran right into a filly. A filly he would meet again years later.
"Whoa," yelped the orange filly.
"Oh I'm sorry," Caramel said quickly forgetting his ball being worried for the filly he ran into. He knelt over and helped her back to her hooves. When he saw her, he was stunned by how pretty she was. Her hair was a bit exaggerated but she had the most beautiful and honest green eyes he ever saw. All he could was stare.
"Oh don't ya'll worry none," Applejack said. 'Shoot say it right,' she scolded herself. "I mean," She said quietly, "That is quite alright. Accidents do happen you know." She gave him a warm smile.

I don't like it, when he's stooping over my bed like that.

He mumbles to himself reaching for his handkerchief and wiping my tears away.
Secretly I'm leaning a little bit more in these hands.
I close my eyes and nod slightly, so that he knows that I understood what he said. I was never really good in speaking this language, but I can understand it a bit.
Him speaking about human rights, about civil liberties about fighting for freedom...it's one of the first thing in my life, that remember.
He was so tall back then.
Strong and big and scary in the way he made his people believe in him.

There were only two days left before school would start. I had spent the last couple days hanging out with my friends and getting used to my new body. It finally felt completely natural to me. Seeing myself in the mirror was no longer a shock. I was even getting used to being tall, which was quite a surprise considering I was two feet taller than I used to be.
After getting ready, I decided it was time to finally start showing myself to people. I would start with my friends' parents.
I sauntered over to the house phone. Before I could even pick it up, it rang. It was, amazingly, Burning Hope High School. I listened to the recording. Apparently it had been decided that "in light of recent events, Burning Hope High School will furthermore be known simply as Hope High School." Also, the first week back would be special. Each day we would get to wear something different; apparently they wanted to try to lighten the mood of the first few days. The first day was Costume Day.

Eyes clenched, Rainbow Dash squirmed and allowed herself to sink deeper into the fluffy cloud that was her home. The afternoon Sun shone down upon her, rousing her from her slumber. She rolled onto her back and let loose a huge yawn. Sighing, the pale cyan pegasus slowly cracked open her eyes and rubbed them with her two fore-hooves. She sat up on her haunches and peeked over the edge of her cloud, gazing at the bridge to Ponyville nearby. Nopony was there.
"Oh, come on, kid," she mumbled in annoyance. "You begged and pleaded for almost an hour yesterday, and now you don't even show up on time."

I banged my head on my desk and sighed. Linear algebra was a pain in the arse for me and it showed. I was reading my notes and all I got was a mess of numbers, letters and symbols. I would barely pass, like usual. But I wanted to get a good grade this time; this class counted for university. And since I wanted to get scholarships, I could not afford grades in the 60's to low 70's. So I kept going. There were so many different concepts: determinant, adjoint, vector space, eigen vector, subspace theorem.... I sighed again, closed my book and looked at the time. 9:39PM. The test was at 8:30AM tomorrow morning. I yawned, my eyes itching from tiredness. "Screw this, I need to wake up. Maybe the shower will help..." I thought, going to the bathroom and getting ready to shower.

I missed the warmth. I missed the feeling of arms wrapped around me. I missed the drying of my tears, the confrontation of my fears. All given by one person, the person who gave me life. And as a fish out of water, I tried to swim towards him.
I did not fall off a roof.
I missed the sound of his voice, his scent I still can't replace. I missed the way he always cared, how even when broken, he was always there. And I had become addicted like never before, and found I couldn't breathe without him.
I was not pushed off a roof.
I missed the way he always dressed. I missed the way he walked. I missed the shining of his eyes, his hair, his smile, how he always tries. And I'd run into his arms, my heart beat getting stronger, beating the poison through my veins.
I was not caught, once off the roof.
I missed the way he said my name.

From the moment the first rays of sunshine flowed through his bedroom window, Orion Sparkle woke up without a single ounce of hesitation, threw off the warm covers that enveloped him, and jumped out of bed. The room was cold and the world outside looked even more frigid, but instead of returning to the toasty embrace of his dreams, he only felt more awake than ever. His sister Andromeda often joked that it would usually take nothing short of magic to pull him out of the peaceful comatose he called sleep, but this was no ordinary day.
Life and enthusiasm rushed through his body in great vigor this morning because today was his birthday. Even more important, though, was its significance. All night long, he dreamed of finally getting his cutie mark and showing it to his friends. The “oohs” and “aahs” still reverberated in his mind as he rushed to a mirror, unable to contain his excitement any longer. With a quick turn, he spun hi

Rarity inhaled deeply, letting the pleasant aroma of her drink fill her nostrils. The snifter glass gently shifted about, buoyed by her magical aura, and its burgundy contents swirled along the transparent walls. She tipped the glass to her lips, gracefully sipping its contents in a way that only years of cultured drinking could imbue. A satisfied smile crossed her lips as the cognac warmed her throat as it drained to her stomach. She was almost finished with her third glass of the night, which would put her just at her tolerance level for this particular beverage; such a shame that her friends didn't know their own tolerances.
At that thought, she looked about the bar from her seat in the corner booth. While she wasn't the type to normally socialize in such establishments, this bar was cultured enough for her tastes, being well designed, well built, and having a satisfactory selection of

Fluttering Hearts Chapter 1 Fall is a special time of the year in Ponyville; the season of change as some ponies referred to it. Although most noticeably the change they're referring to would be the physical change of color that the leaves on the trees exhibit, there are also some more subtle, but nonetheless significant changes that occur throughout ponies lives this time of year. The peak of this season is marked by the annual Running of the Leaves competition, in which several ponies compete in a marathon designed to shake the leaves from the trees as a result of the force of everypony trampling the grounds at once as they run. However this year, there was another competition between two ponies that was slowly gaining more spectators. An Iron Pony competition between the down-to-earth pony apple farmer Applejack, and the head-in-the-Cloudsdale pegasus Rainbow Dash.

In the Period of Cretaceous, God grew distasteful of the Dinosaurs' wicked ways. (Actually, after a few billion years He was royally Bored and wanted to screw with the most intelligent life-forms available at the time.) So he descended unto a Virgin Raptor and made her lay a single egg.
This was long before anyone ever figured out the connection between mating and babies, so no one really gave a damn.
God commanded the virgin raptor to name her son Jesus. And so she did.
Jesus hatched, and his hatching was marked by a volcano erupting and wiping out the nests of nearly all other raptors. When He realized this, he promptly ran away and wandered in the desert, living a raptory life for 18 years, until he turned 32.

#97) I am an open brony with everyone, except my parents. I'd tell them, but my dad will not approve. He even disapproved and called me gay when I was really into "Phineas and Ferb". Imagine if he found out [about "Friendship is Magic"]! There's no way he would approve. But I want to buy merchandise, shirts, and other stuff. So what do you think I should do about telling my parents?
Answer: Your dad sounds like a royal prick. I don't know what his upbringing was like, but your sexuality isn't defined by watching a simple TV show. "Phineas and Ferb" might be geared towards an audience younger than yourself, but I'm not sure why it would be considered, in his eyes, to be 'gay'. I think he might be getting mixed up between watching something that's distinctly effeminate and watching something that targets kids in general. If anything, "Phineas and Ferb" is a show pitched at boys (although, naturally, it does have universal appeal) and so I can see why you'd be worried about

Not Quite What I ExpectedIt had been a month since Castiel had fallen and moved in with the Winchesters in the bunker. A month in which they had gotten used to living with each other, gotten into fights, made up, and gotten a little closer. Granted, the space the bunker afforded helped, as Sam could get away when Dean was being particularly, well, Dean-ish. Dean was afforded the same when his little brother was being a little too precise and corrective.Not Quite What I Expected2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
As for Cas, for he went exclusively by Cas now that he had fallen and was no longer an angel, he was merely trying to get used to being human. Hunger, thirst, exhaustion, aches, none of them made any sense at all to the formerly celestial being. He’d had a taste of what being human was like years before, after he’d carved a banishing sigil into his chest to help fight against his brothers. But this was permanent and Cas was still trying to wrap his mind around it.
It wasn’t that Cas didn’t understand what being a human was about.

The otherwise mostly barren island was dotted with white and speckles of bright blue. Surrounded by deep water on all sides, this was a forgotten piece of land inaccessible to any but those that descended from the skies. And for them, it was a haven.
The young male approached it, his wings effortlessly cutting through the air. This was his element; Nothing feels so natural and confortable to him than the apparent weightlessness of flying high above the seas, the wind currents gently but firmly blowing through his skin. Only the feeling of floating on the warm waters and the pungent taste of the ocean can be as nice.
He descended slowly, circling around the island. Down on land, hundreds of crested flyers like himself gather in the higher areas, while a few of their antlered relatives congregate around the beaches and flatter regions, for their lack of clawed fingers severely hinders their ability to cope with rougher terrain. The island smells of swimmers and droppings and an almost de

Jonathan Crane ran through the dark mazelike alleyways of Gotham where no rational civilian dared to set foot at night. The heavy rain's pouring covered the scarcely audible sounds his feet made when touching the ground. A wind gust caught the coat of his scarecrow costume and made him feel as if he were flying, like a large black crow in the pale moonlight. He quickened his pace and was about to turn around a corner when he heard a voice cry from behind through the rain:
"Wait for me! I'm not as fast as you!"
Unnerved, Jonathan turned around and waited for the distant black silhouette of his friend Jervis Tetch to come closer. This was the third time within fifteen minutes he was slowed down because of him! Impatiently Crane shifted his weight from one foot to another as the smaller man finally reached him. Exhausted, the Mad Hatter breathed heavily.
