Year XXXX November 12
I have finally come in contact with a miner for a few supplies like wood and raw food and got up to date on what is happening in the world and I finally learned the date so I am quite happy about that. Rumors of miners trying to find ways to tame Endermen worry me since they are equal to us in many respects and it would be insulting to them to try. Not only that, it is downright dangerous since even wearing a pumpkin they can still get you if you touch them.
I’ve decided to put in writing what I have found out since my assertion to a mid-low ranking member of the clan. I hope at this time that whoever reads this will forgive me for not writing on the subject of status within Ender society. Being alone for so long with only Kefka for companionship has changed me in ways I didn’t think possible so I have to put an effort into doing things the old way. Starting from the most privileged and working down. This mode
Still the Same Chapter FourKarkat awoke early that morning. He groaned and rolled out of bed. For the first time in weeks Karkat had actually had nightmares of his own. They were terrible dreams, but they were not the dreams of his ancestors. He dreamed of his friend's deaths, over and over again, he saw his remaining friends die as well. But the one that hurt the most, the one that had Karkat sitting up in bed, gasping for air, and nearly clawing his blankets to shreds, was his dream of John. It was a dream where John died, saving Karkat.Still the Same Chapter Four4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I wake up blinded by the sunlight
Only to realize absence of life's delight
Everyone yearning for brightness
In this place enclosed in darkness
The piercing pain,
The woeful cries
The thirst for greater wealth
To achieve a better health
Families tenuous of starvation
Parents and children seeking direction
Each district secretly wanting insurrection
Against the Capitol's greedy agitation
Iridescent competition for survival created,
Controlling life for entertainment started
All of us longing for an end to this rapture
No longer wanting to suffer from this seizure
This dystopia encased in obscurity
Residents being absorbed by vanity
Can this really be reality?
Why is it devoured in catastrophe?
What caused us to give birth to human bestiality?

-Most of the characters are interesting all the Autobots, three or four of the Decepticons, and most of the humans. All the Autobots have well-rounded personalities, making them likable and funny. Megatron is an interesting character who his motives are a little vague. Why does he want to create an army of machines and destroy humanity? There are signs that he hates organics, but where does this originate from? There are also hints that Optimus Prime and Megatron are brothers. This could be expanded on.

As laying awake I shiver,
The invisible beastly faces,
That leer, unknowable, in the night.
He who said that the greatest sensation
Was that screaming terror that surrounds
Humans in the coal-black places
As they know they have no control over creation.
And while the good lie asleep in bed,
The sorcerers who were hidden escape,
Praising Gods beyond the souls capability,
To understand, as to be saved is to be lead.
While those who froth in madness scream,
Of things that were beyond their understanding,
Their dead eyes glaring back the reflections of eternity
And they know that nothing is as it should seem.
And from this blinding, choking bleakness,
One should find the reason to hope,
But no, all that is left is things beyond things,
Manipulating human stupidity and weakness.
As here a little child I stand,
On the edge of something so horrifically vast
That no man or woman can glare into it and return,
With soul intact from that dark land.

We used to spend a lot of time together too. Where debates would concur and we'd get so into the discussions that we were left breathless, and your face would be glowing in red and your chest would rise and fall and not because of the exhaustion, your lips would quiver in that way that I've come to recognized, and the room would be filled with the sound of your laughter, a divine sound made only by the gods themselves.
Your eyes would light up, so brightly, with warmness that no person should have and giveaway like it was nothing, and an embrace from

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."

I hate this war. But what should I do?
I'm not stupid. If I stop fighting back, they will make me pay back everything, what I did. They will kill me.
Actually I don't even know if I'll make it tonight, the next days...
Perhaps I'll die. I'm not a real country anymore.

If Germany isn't able to win these battles, he is not the right German country. If this Germany is too weak, he doesn't derserve to live.
Actually it's not unusual...I was never really Germanic after all...I was allways a mud and there's nothing in the world that would be able to change that.
Perhaps there will a new Germany after me, it's not the first time that a nation dies in this area nor will I be the last one.

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 don't like it, when he's stooping over my bed like that.
I'm so scared.
Whatever may come after this.

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.

"A little bit, Princess, thank you," Twilight allowed, taking a long sip from her glass of water before softly setting it back on the table.
At a glance, it appeared little had changed in the appearance of the group in the twenty minutes since Princess Luna had finished relating Twilight's mishap from the night before. However, closer inspection would reveal an empty plate that once held a sandwich in front of Big Macintosh and bowls of salad ranging from partially eaten to just a few leaves remaining at Fluttershy, Rarity, and Luna's places. As for the others, they had opted for refills for their glasses of water, except for Pinkie, whose face remained submerged in her bowl. Twilight was convinced that the pink pony was somehow breathing through her ears.

Visions - Part 1It started with a vision. Cvetym Aileyn was curious about the strength of his abilities outside of the sleeping realm. He knew he could use his seer skills while he was awake, for he had experienced sudden and unwelcome visions a number of times whilst working on other projects, but the power and clarity of these visions were far weaker than they were when he was asleep and patrolling the Dreamscape. He knew that if he concentrated enough, he could find objects out in the world or in space. However, he was unsure if he could focus on people and discover their location as well as immobile objects.Visions - Part 13 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Big Macintosh still had Caramel's words in his head even as he worked harder to ignore them. It was not that Caramel was wrong. Mac wanted to ask Pinkie Pie out for a while now, but he never quite figured out how. At least that excuse satisfied him until today. He knew how to ask Pinkie out on a date. The problem was that he could never think of an excuse to go and ask her out. He tried offering to take the Cakes their daily apple shipment, but Applejack would always insist on it so she could visit with Pinkie for a bit. Mac would never deny his little sister any chance to spend time with her friends, and seeing her leave the farm occasionally to have fun was always welcome.
Today was different. If Caramel could pony up and bring himself to ask Applejack out, then he should be able to do the same. 'I'll go one this fence is finished,' he promised himself. He was content to content to allow himself this excuse and f

Any mare could sense it. She had been in denial, of course, but had to be struck with the truth of reality eventually. Her body swayed with the frequent waving of the locomotive as her eyes gawked into her own reflection of the window to the side. It was one of her worst habits. Procrastinating. Was it that she was truly lazy? It didn't seem so in this situation; fear and confusion arrested her. Hearing muffled laughter from outside the door, Rainbow pushed herself from the bed and stumbled to open the doorknob. The giggles grew louder as she steered down the hallway, spotting Big Macintosh in the corner looking

After driving the airship back to the factory, with a platoon of guards watching their every move, the two pegasi had been transported into the administration building of the factory, in a room which appeared to be the mixture of an interrogation room and a boudoir.
Two high-intensity gas lamps pointed in their faces were the only light source in the room, as Rarity questioned them from her chaise lounge.
"You have endangered half of Ponyville and my factory, destroyed a historical building, cost me a veritable fortune and scratched the paint on my masterwork."
"And yet, you have demonstrated an unsurpassed prowess. So, the question should be, what am I to do with you?"
Another stony silence.

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.

The summer sun rose over Ponyville through a cloudless blue sky. The early light beamed through the window of Princess Luna's bedroom at the Carousel Boutique. With the sun in her face again, the Princess slowly woke up from the wonderful dream she was having. Stretching lazily, she reached over to the other side of the bed, sat up swiftly, and gazed at the empty spot next to her. "I guess it really was a dream." She spoke softly to herself.
Luna sighed and smiled. 'But what a dream!' She thought. Now that it was light, the Princess could see her environment better. Luna was used to much larger rooms. To tell the truth, she had closets that were larger than Spike and R
