The task was done
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
Luna's LamentLuna's Lament1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The snow sparkles, twirling in the sky, the flakes dappling our view
that we see, this gift you gave, so many years
years I lost confined to the moon
Each blade, each curve, a miracle, a perfection that only you saw
you who have no eyes, but could see so much more clearly then any of us
If only I had had your vision, perhaps things would have been different
Perhaps I could have known, held on longer....
For the winter now falls, each cold fleck against my skin and fur,
the soft dew covering my wings and moistening my feathers
I quiver and bend my head low, mane blowing chilly in the wind
None are out here tonight
none to appreciate the miracle of the dark, or see that moon,
that white orb upon which I was confined so many years
but even then, back so many years,
in some part of me, you would come out nightly and stare, looking for me
Now that I look in the sky
enjoying the soft feel of your gift, I look now,
searching for you
I wish I could say those

Dark Side of the Luna
It was a beautiful night in Equestria. Princess Luna stood watching over the land, taking in the awe of the world around her, the greens of the fields that covered the vast horizon, the browns of the forests that decorated the horizons. She looked outward, keeping an eye on all of the ponies as they slept peacefully through the night, each one with their own stories, their own histories and futures. It had been a long day. The Pegasus ponies had created a mighty storm earlier; huge, dark clouds hung above; thunder cracked across the skies and strong winds howled through the trees. It was a beautiful yet frightening sight to behold, and now, everypony needed a rest after the commotion. Luna just watched, as families slept in their stables, open fires crackled across the horizon, illuminating the land like fireflies as a cool breeze swept the land causing the flames to dance. She became lost in the beauty for hours, just watching in silence, as the fires danced for

For the second time in 6 years Equestria found itself in a war between the New Lunar Republic and Solar Empire. This time a 3rd party; the Legion of Discord was thrown in. Both the NLR and SE fought each other as well as the LoD in a war that lasted 6 months, and almost resulted in the end of Equestria and all other lands as we knew them.
The first war started 4 years after the return of Princess Luna. Both her and Princess Celestia ruled over Equestria peacefully at first. But after a period of time Luna started disapproving of how Celestia was ruling the land, viewing some of it as almost tyrannical. Tensions started rising between the two sisters again, and between the citizens of Equestria, who were also viewing Equestria's rule under the Solar Empire the same way.
It finally came to a head when Celestia announced some new laws at a Parliament meeting. Luna bluntly objected, angering Celestia. A fight broke o

Luna stared curiously at Discord, who was no longer facing her. He let out a sigh as he stared out into the sky. "I've never really had a friend before " He finally admitted.
"I'll be your friend " Discord's eyes widened as he heard Luna speak. He turned around, astonished, "What?"
"I said I'll be your friend." Luna smiled at the draconequus.
"Why would you want to be friends with a creature like me?" Discord wondered.
Luna approached Discord and gave him a hug, "Because, I've never had a friend either."
Luna panted as she landed next to Discord. She lay down on the soft grass, exhausted. "Tough day, huh?" Discord wondered.
"Lifting the moon is really hard " Luna whined. This caused a chuckle to escape from Discord's mouth. "What are you chuckling about?"
"It's just " Discord began, "You do realize you'll have to do this every day for the rest of your life, right?"
Luna's eyes widened, and she quickly sunk her head into the grass.

Rediscovery (Rebirth of the Empire)
Where did the world once disappear
When we were praying for freedom
The light was blinding my eyes,
Then darkness came;
Was that the end…?
What waited were the graying walls
Lifeless city and kingdom
Is this the worth of my existence
Has nothing changed?
Am I alive and trapped in the death
Or dead and lost my afterlife
Was I ever anything else
Than these crippling chains around my neck
They say time had forgotten our life
Yet the scars are still fresh in my heart
Can't I just leave it behind
Can't I just forget it all
Am I a ghost that's wandering the earth
I remember nothing more but pain
I saw the light once faded
Is there meaning to even try to escape
They say time had forgotten our life
Yet the scars are still f

#76) What are your thoughts about the little mini issue within the fandom regarding Lil Miss Jay - the artist who works on the grimdark version of Rarity? Sure, he might draw something people don't like. But on the other end of the argument he's received death threats from both haters and bronies (I mean yeah it's the internet but some arrests were actually made). Any specific thoughts?
Answer: This one was quite difficult to answer, as I tend to avoid Tumblr, and thus had to perform some genuine research before answering. Being friends with a variety of Tumblr-fluent people, I receive information every now and then, and I have heard about the person in question, although what I've been told has been mostly negative. That said, I've never personally been involved in a situation with this user, and I can't even say that I've seen much of their work, and so I'm afraid that the next few points will be based on what I've heard from other people.

“What is it Luna?” Came a call from the landing just above the young alicorn.
“Tia I’m huuuuuunnnnnnnnnngrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy!!!! Can you make me something to eat?” She reached the top landing and made her way into the room where she found Celestia sitting at a table, an open book floating just a few inches away from her face.
“Why don’t you make yourself a sandwich?” Celestia said without looking up from her book.
“I can’t, you know mama doesn’t want me using knives, even with my magic. I’m too young.”
“Then have one of the guards make you one.”
“No, they never do it right. Can’t you make me a sandwich? Please Tia? You make the best peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in all of Equestria.”

Star Bolt kept his stance and replied “Yes Commander, I am ready.”
Commander Mist smiled “Are ya sure because you look nervous.”
“No Sir, I am ready for this I am completely confident.”

The shadowy alicorn landed in front of the steaming cave by the base of the volcano. Her wings folded against her side as she trotted closer, being careful not to slip on the mud and slick stones beneath her hooves. The air was filled with the stink of sulphur and the bubbling sound of pools of mud as they boiled in the oppressively hot and humid air. Taking as deep a breath as she dared of the stinking miasma she was surrounded by, she shouted into the cave as loudly as her prodigious voice would allow.
"Come forth Ille Qui Gubernat Monte Ignis- 'He Who Governs The Mountain's Fire!' I would speak with thee!"
She couldn't help but feel slightly proud that she was able to do this with breaking into a fit of coughing, considering the quality of the air. Of course no sooner had she thought this then a small cough escaped her lips. She sighed and shook her head ruefully, gently clearing her throat.

Earth: December 20, 2012
Tom lay back in his couch and let out a sigh, breath laden in beer, eyes so heavy he felt the world champion bodybuilder would have a difficult time keeping them open. The moonlight streamed through the Venetian blinds, cascading across the television as he stared at it, the images of little cartoon equines flashing on the screen. He looked at the clock. 11:30. Late enough where he should have been in bed, yet early enough where he didn't feel the least bit drowsy. He cursed his many late nights in college, watching movies, playing drinking games with his friends. It was his own fault, such was the story of his life.
He looked to his right. A framed photograph, showing the grinning face of himself and his family. Wife, Ashley, and daughters, Kelly and Sandra. A smile slowly crept onto his face as he looked into his daughter's eyes. So pure and imaginative- what he'd give to see them again. Alas, one drunk driver and a flipped va
