Sarah glared at the crystal ball sitting innocently on top of her coffee table. It was a whitish opaque and had a faint glow that pulsed rhythmically, like some kind of living jewel. The Goblin King had told her that it would emit the small amount of magic that the goblins would need, nothing to worry about. It would not break and would just look like a baseball or something equally innocuous to other people.
In exchange, he had said, Sarah would call for him on a semi-regular basis, so that he could make sure that she wasn't "ruining his goblins what with her silly mortal ideas and feminine notions", and to ensure that the crystal was still working. He promised her that no harm would come to her, and warned her that she had best accept this deal, as he would not offer his generous assistance again. Sarah, unable to find anything objectionable other than his pompous attitude, had begrudgingly accepted the crystal and the terms. She had ignored the

"An unfinished portrait painting of a Chinese man brought the memory of old veteran Ivan Braginsky back to the battlefield of 1941 when he and Wang Yao fought together against Nazi invasion."
Ch.13 New Mission
"We will start off at 2000." At six-thirty in the evening, all preparations of crossing the fire line were finished. The division commander shook each of the seven people's hands, "Use this time to have a good rest."
Only after the other six members of the squad had left did Wang Yao started walking back towards the bunker. This was for the best, not having to walk together with Braginsky the Devil. Although both being member
Moon and the BridgeThe stars, spread across the night’s sky, were brighter than usual tonight. The grass felt soft and welcoming with its light touch; the longer I walked, the more therapeutic it felt. Even when my foot scraped against a rock, it didn’t take away from the building serenity; I only needed a few more steps in the grass to wash the pain completely away.Moon and the Bridge9 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The last few nights had been too cold for these walks; and when my only way to relieve stress was from walking, it was nice to be able to do just that. Most would argue that I could’ve worn a coat on the colder nights, but it wasn’t the same without the night’s breeze touching my skin, or without feeling the soft kiss of the grass on my feet. I took in a deep breath, and I could almost taste the stars and the clouds. I felt so close to the sky on nights like this.
I traveled as far as I could on the grass. There was a dirt road up ahead, and further up that road was a bridge. I allowed my feet to saturate

Chapter Two: Gentle Hands
Warmth welcomed Fluttershy like a friendly neighbor as she regained consciousness. Lifting her head from a deep crimson pillow propped up by the arm of the couch, she noticed she was laying on her right side cocooned snuggly in a thick sky blue quilt. The slight shifted of her body as she tried rolling onto her stomach jostled the sharp sear in her left pastern. The pony nosed aside the fold of blanket covering her leg, eyes widening in shock at what her curiosity had found. Half of her lower leg was wrapped tightly in gauze soaked in a mixture of blood and a brown liquid she guessed was iodine, a startled squeak leaping from her throat at the sight of it.
“Oh, good. You’re awake,” a masculine voice interrupted the silence in the room, causing the pegasus to jump a little.
Turning her head to the right where the voice had originated from, she found a dragon garbed in an apron co

"Hey, N, You know everything about Pokémon, right?"
I looked over at Touko, who was batting eyelids innocently at me. My own eyes narrowed in suspicion.
We were slowly making our way across Sky Arrow Bridge, walking side by side. The hot midday sun beat down on us, as unforgiving as a Darmanitan's Overheat.
"Well, I wouldn't say I know everything, but I know a bit, yes." I answered her modestly.
She grinned happily. "Then, you can answer my question?"
I smiled back at her. "What would you like to know?" I asked.
"Can you tell me about Victini?"
I stopped in my tracks, halting my steps harshly. Touko skidded quickly when she realised I'd stopped several feet behind her, and turned back to m

Tooth looked mournfully at the teeth in her hands.
"They could have been beautiful." She sighed. She was, however, expecting this. Every year, especially this day, teeth like this that fell out looked awful. If they were alive she would hear them grasping desperately for life and beg to be brushed and flossed. She turned to her Baby Teeth helpers who were also grieving. One who just came back from her mission reluctantly placed another rotten tooth in her hand.
The Tooth Fairy shook her head and placed the teeth on another Baby Tooth's fingers.
"Go clean these up and sort them out." She said softly. The Baby Tooth nodded and went on her way.
Most of the other fairies tapped their tiny knuckles.
"Now, now, girls" Tooth admonished "violence will not solve anything."
The little ones argued about all the other times that this has happened and how it's a growing problem.
"But she hasn't done anything wrong to us." The Tooth fairy replied. The Baby Teeth raised their eyebrows. One more Baby

I stare at it blankly, confused and angry. I hate books. I despise books! People stare at them all day, and they tell me there are stories inside, but when I open them, they hold nothing but blank, smooth pages.

She felt like she was reliving a memory, more than a nightmare…
She was wearing a long, old fashioned dress, which was torn at the ends, and leather lace up boots, which were covered in grime and snow.
She was running so fast that her mind couldn't process all the images she was seeing in front of her; the trees were nothing but dark, green and brown blurs rushing past her, and her dress skirts were getting snagged on every root, bush, and twig it brushed by. But she didn't care.
They were catching up to her.
She could hear them jumping through the tall ever greens, branch by branch. They were 50 feet above her, yet their howls and snarls sounded as if they were right next to her.
They were after her.
They only wanted her.
She was exhausted, but she kept running. She couldn't stop.
But no matter how fast she went, no matter how far she went, they would always catch up to her.
And they would get her.
She didn't know why they wanted her, or what they would do to her if they did get her,

We stood at the altar
In the fresh aesthetics of spring
You took my hand in yours
And slid on that fateful ring
I wore a fair dress
Clothed in a flurry of white
The poison smile
On my wedding, the only blight
So beautiful it was
My dress stained red
Our passion unbidden
I took off your head
We promised love
Till death do us part
And it shall
For your head, take my heart
My dear, my darling
Forget me not
Honor our righteous vows
And love me till I rot
We vowed forever
Let my love

Chapter One: The Unexpected Visitor
It was mid-March in the magical land of Equestria. The wintry chill swept through the lands, in some areas harsh, while in others not so much. The town known as Ponyville, and the area around it, received a fresh blanket of snow on the previous night. Local residents emerged from their homes to behold Mother Nature’s gift, as schools were closed and workers were issued a day off from their duties. Ponies of all ages bundled up in appropriate attire to keep warm as they ventured out to indulge themselves in the winter wonderland. While most enjoyed the spectacle, there were individuals who found it a nuisance. When ponies have had their fill of fun in the snow, they would go inside their toasty homes to curl up around a fireplace and wrap up in a warm blanket or tre

They were all in the Warren at the moment preparing for Easter. Even Pitch was painting a few, although they were a little dark in color to actually send out. Bunny hopped by and inspected them, shaking his head. Honestly, he was back to his old self. He was larger than life again, and Pitch assumed it just had to do with his own self confidence being restored.
"I've got some faith I can put up a fight, mate." Bunny said from his spot where he was painting eggs.
Pitch looked off away from where the rest of the Guardians were doing their own thing to prepare for easter. He had a feeling of dread in his stomach. It really ircked him to be helping those he fought not too long ago, but the balance was tipped. As much as he hates to admit it, fear did mostly belong in the shadows. Not taking over the world.

I stood there, speechless. The anger filled me up. Mespirit's face grew pale and felt stone cold. N glared at me. I hated times like these, but I bet they loved me crazy. He cradled it like a baby. He'd be a great father. But he was Marlene's. I clenched my teeth and tried holding my temper.
"I trusted you," I whimpered," but in the end, you'd be the one to turn your back on me."
"No, you're the one who turned your back on me. Your Mespirit's cry could be heard miles away!" N cried. This was the first time I've seen him cry. But that's what I was supposed to do in this story. It wasn't mine to tell. His tears fell on Mespirit and it made a weird noise. The hue came on again and exploded like last time. This was bad enough.
"N! What did you do?" I screamed. Mespirit's breaths became deeper and much slower. Cheren and Bianca also rushed in. Bianca fell to the floor. Mespirit's powers were out of control. It got the better of her. Cheren picked her up, fury in his eyes.
