Life With Twilight Ch 3"There ya go, now you've got it," Twilight said, just as I had finished the last homework problem for the night. I then took a look at the clock on the new stove, which read 10:15 pm.
"Wow… finished even faster than last time," I say, quite surprised.
"Well, that just shows how much better you're getting at this," Twilight says with a smile. She then got up from her seat and got a glass of milk before heading back to her room.
"Well, better get some sleep, we've got to get up early to catch the metro tomorrow."
"I'll do that," I say, smiling and waving good night.
Twilight flashed that cute smile of hers as she walked into her room, closing the door behind her. I start packing up my school supplies, as I think about how great everything has gone over these past few months. Ever since that first night, she's been helping me with homework, and words can't begin to describe how thankful I am for her. It's like having my own at home tutor, whose help is getting me through college. I
Life with Twilight Ch 1So tell me about life. How do you live it? Play video games, go out and hang with friends, get a big honking paycheck and buy lots of shoes? Sounds like fun, really it does. You should consider yourself lucky to live such a life, cause I sure as hell would. Everyday, it's the same old thing; wake up in this crummy old apartment, go to my college classes, spend about twenty hours per week at work, and then come home to do whatever I can until bedtime. Then I wake up and do the same thing the next day.Life with Twilight Ch 11 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
After mom and dad died, my sister finished college and moved out to California, where she became an overnight success in the field of fashion design. That girl's so rich, I don't even know if she does work anymore. She's been wiring me money from across the country, to help pay for the apartment and the rest of my college tuition. As long as I keep passing my classes, she'll keep providing the support. My other expenses are another matter, which is why I'm working part time. It's really no

My parents used to take me there all the time as a kid, and it still has a very special place in my heart. But since their passing, I haven't gone. After all, what's the fun in going alone? But this year, I thought I'd take Twilight with me. For once, it's my turn to plan a field trip, and once again she's as excited as ever.

"What do we do first?" She asks.
"Why don't you pick," I say to her.
"But I've never been to a carnival before."
"And I haven't been since I was twelve. What's your point?"
Twilight looks around with wide eyes. She twirls so fast that I keep thinking she might make herself dizzy.
"How about those games over there?" She asks, pointing to the game section.
I start walking over when she takes hold of my arm. I look at her, a bit confused.

Life With Twilight Ch 4Well, it's Friday night and I'm sitting on the couch with my DVD collection. With all the trips Twilight and I have been taking, it's such a relieve to just sit down on the couch and watch them. Now don't get me wrong, I really like taking these trips with her. We get to see new things, go to new places, and best of all, it gets me out of the house and into the world. But too much travel does take a toll on you, and it's nice to just stay at home on some nights.Life With Twilight Ch 41 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
That's when Twilight comes home from work, stumbling across the floor like a worn out dog. I guess she must've had a rough day. She puts down her purse and house keys before observing the empty kitchen.
"Hey Tai, what's for supper?" She asks curiously.
The two of us have a system where if one gets home before the other, they clean the house and cook dinner. Obviously, since there was no class today, it was my turn. But I had a different idea. Since she's been showing me her interests, I thought it was time I showed her mine.
Life with Twilight Ch 2Well, Christmas has come and gone, and thankfully, I was able to get some help from my sister with educating Twilight. She was able to give Twilight some lessons that I otherwise couldn't provide, such as how to get fully dressed and how to bathe (I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am for that). She even gave Twilight some clothes as Christmas presents, coming right from her own design company, of course. Twilight's personal favorite is the magenta colored purse, though I have no idea how or what she's going to use it for. So anyway, my sister and Twilight were the best of friends, until the holidays ended and sis had to go back to work, leaving me here, alone with Twilight, once again.Life with Twilight Ch 21 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Life With Twilight Ch 6It’s official; Twilight and I are now in a full on relationship. Though we picked a pretty bad time to start; right after we started dating, the new semester began and it was one of the toughest I’ve ever faced. The reason is because it was my second to last before graduation, as a result, I had to work extra hard to ensure that I pass. Making things worse, a lot of my classes required computer work and since I don’t have the applications at home, I had to stay late and use the computer labs. That and handling a part time job really made life miserable over these past few months.Life With Twilight Ch 61 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Friday night is our usual date night, usually involving the two of us going to the movies. Sometimes, this just amounts to us staying home and watching one of my DVDs. Other times we actually go out to the theater. When at home, the two of us really enjoy films from the 80’s and 90’s. Part of the reason is because Twilight finds it fascinating to learn about the various tricks and special effects that were used in the old days. This is where my movie knowledge really comes in handy, and

Doctors are saying that this year's flu season will be less severe than usual, due to larger amounts of vaccines. After the approval of a new flu vaccine, by the FDA, stockpiles have been distributed throughout Equestria." "Well that's good," Twilight thought to herself.
The purple unicorn stood and trotted over to the door. Before she left her horn glowed and the television turned off. As she stepped into the cool fall air, she felt a chill run down her spine. "Let's make this quick," she thought to herself, as she began to walk to Pinkie's bakery.
It was a nice day in Ponyville. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and the leaves were beginning to turn the prettiest colors. The only down side was this cold weather. Twilight looked over to

The gardens of the royal palace were first built some 300 years ago, under the order of King Cocoon. They were a gift for his new wife, the beautiful Queen Consort, Vespa, who he knew adored flowers, especially those of the rare calibre. The new gardens became home to the kingdom’s prettiest and rarest plant life, all for the queen and her family’s eyes alone. As years passed, they took on the characteristics of the more traditional styles of Changeling gardens, and eventually divided up into a large modern ornate complex to accommodate them. Today, few creatures outside the palace have seen such an awe-inspiring pocket of the world for themselves.
“Stay on my back, Princess,” Cerci told her as they trekked their way down the garden path which had been covered in a blanket of freshly fallen snow. A nasty chill was in the air, turning the koi ponds’ surfaces into solid ice. The nanny wore several layers (with a satchel

Took me a while
To just accept it
Didn't know what I did wrong
Or how to correct it
With all that time on the moon
Still don't know what to say to you
Don't you think it was just a bit cruel
Even if I was acting like a mule
Not trying to play the victim
But try my shoes on for size
Is one titter tantrum
Worth a thousand years of cries
With all the tears I shed
I could have cried a river
While you were sleeping in your bed
These cold rocks just made me shiver
A thousand years all alone
Not a companion cube to call my own

"S-Spike," she called in a barely audible voice. The purple dragon didn't move a muscle; he just continued to stare at her, with his arms crossed.
Twilight was beginning to gather her bearings and examined the room once more. The first thing she noticed was that she was strapped to a large metal table.
