With his hands on the guard rail of the balcony, Loki had his head down, tears falling from his eyes as rapidly as the rain falling from the clouds.
Damn he missed him, his one and only true friend, and the one and only person who ever held his heart. He eventually calmed himself down and went back inside to change into dry clothes. He settled himself in his chair and began reading through the books that The Soldier had brought him; he decided to leave The Hound of Baskerville for last.
He found out that most of these mortals books were rather short, only a few hundred pages. It took him no time to finish the few books that The Soldier had given him and soon he was on the book he had saved for last. As Loki read it he noticed something within the first few chapters, Sherlock mentioned "A Scandal" that he had to stop. He knew that was code for "Irene has a room at the Grand". The God sh

Life, the Greed-ler decided, was now beautiful. Nothing had changed to his surroundings- no trees, no creatures, no life, but that didn't matter anymore. The Greed-ler felt that all that mattered were his recently discovered emotions. His heart raced when he saw Oncie, he became so turned on when the smaller one would moan, he'd smile instantly when he'd blush. Oncie was everything that the Greed-ler could ever want, and he didn't need anything more.
Though, with every passing day, the Greed-ler started to notice a difference in Oncie's attitude. Every morning, when he'd wake up, Oncie would stare at him in confusion, worry and shock before placing a fake smile on his face and rushing to the bathroom. The Greed-ler never could tell why. He would ask what was wrong, but Oncie would make up some random excuse and dash away. The Greed-ler was concerned by this, and he would sit on his bed, thinking hard about what went through his mind when he was younger.
It was that morning he

It had been quite some time since Thor had brought him back here to keep an eye on him, "Didn't trust him in Asgard" he said. He was forced to stay here with these mortals and their strange ways. Tony was always hitting on everything that moved and that included him, though he didn't mind that really, he was rather starting to like Mr. Stark but he knew he could never trust him. Barton was always trying to impress Tony and Natasha at the same time and that usually ended up being awkward. Bruce kept to himself and continued his little 'Science Bromance' with Tony, as Clint called it. Steve was always asking Tony and Bruce questions, tending to keep away from the females because that would usually get him thinking of Peggy. Natasha thought they were all idiots but often times failed to hide her feelings for Barton, everyone knew that they liked each other but feared her too much to dare say anything...

Celestia's sun shined bright over Sweet Apple Acres. The morning rays glistened off of the still fresh dew spritzed about the trees as many ponies diligently worked the fields, bucking the ripe crop from their branches.
"I just don't get why you needed me out here so early in the day," Rainbow Dash complained, bucking at a tree for the third time to make it release its fruit. "You know I like my sleep, AJ. And besides, this is really an earth pony job!"
Applejack looked back to her friend in frustration. "Ah needed ya out here because yer the strongest of our friends after me, and we need all the help we can get!"
She walked over to the tree Dash had been striking. "And ya ain't doin' it right!" Spinning on her heels, AJ landed a sharp buck to the tree, immediately being rewarded with a raining hail of fruit falling into the baskets below. "It ain't in the legs, Sug'. Ya gotta put yer whole body in it."

The day of their private party had arrived as Rainbow Dash and Applejack headed towards Sugar Cube Corner. The obvious caterer for the event could be none other than Pinkie.
"I hope she made one of her awesome cakes!" Dash exclaimed excitedly, flying in small loops above the orange earth pony.
"Ah'm sure she did. She is Pinkie, after all." Applejack found herself looking forward to the party herself. Though it was only going to be a gathering of their closest friends, it still marked a significant moment for her and the pegasus flying around her. "And would'ya get down here already. Ah'd like to walk beside my mare, if ya don't mind."

She couldn't believe Kiba was making them trek through this swamp.
Kiba was still following the scent of the tainted Lunar Flowers.
She would've complained long ago, but now even she could smell them.
They weren't far; they also weren't far from where Lowell's scent had gone
She had picked up the wolf's scent after they left Kurious, and she could also smell it very faintly in this swamp.
A yelp sounded from behind and Asante sighed as she saw Ashi trying to free his paw from some mud.
Annoyed she went to help the cub, but as she got closer, Ashi squealed in fear and tried to back away.
Asante backed up instinctively as Aaron ran back to help Ashi.
"Ashi, she was only trying to help you, don't overreact." Aaron scolded as he freed the cub.

I said that one of the big reasons why I loved Hey Arnold! as a kid was because of the unrequited love Helga exhibited towards Arnold. A lot of episodes that featured Helga would often show her taking out her locket and going into one of her "I love Arnold" monologues or swooning at him when she was alone. Some episodes focused on Helga's feelings for Arnold entirely, a few of which would involve her going to the extreme to prevent Arnold or anyone else from discovering her secret. There were occasions in which she would help Arnold in small to big ways, sometimes without him finding out. Other times would revolve around Arnold and his crushes, specifically Lila, and Helga would often be somewhere in the background, completely jealous of the girl(s) who had Arnold's affections.
I call this essay "Helga in Love" because I will be discussing episodes that feature Helga's love for Arnold as part of the plot, minor or major. Episodes will be separated in categori

AppleBloom was perched on the sun-baked roof of the old Cutie Mark Crusader Clubhouse she'd built herself. It was still surprisingly sturdy and well built; and despite her older age and heavier weight it didn't show signs of fracture.
"'Bloooooom..." A voice whispered on the trees. She twitched her leg in ignorance. "Go away."
"'Bloooom...." It faded away slowly, like it was trying to annoy her.
"APPLEBLOOM!!" came her sister's voice below. AppleBloom shot up. "WHUT?! WHUT IN THE HAY DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!?!" She screamed.
AppleJack's lower lid twitched. "Ah...only called you once..."

Tricks-or-treats, and vampire bats.
Ghosts and spirits on every corner -
Lost and forgotten, widowed mourners.
Grotesque faces, masks and claws,
Bulbous noses, gaping maws.
Monsters stalk you in the night -
Trying to give you a horrible fright.
Children wander about the streets
Having contests to see who beats -
The others in their candy quests,
To see whose costume beats the rest.
Headless horseman, jack-o-lantern,
Goblins giggling with witty banter -
Watch you shoulder! Watch your back!
Be fearful of wolves, they may be on the attack.

Beware glowing eyes, you may meet a ghost.

#82) How long do you think "Friendship is Magic" will last for? What is a good amount of seasons? Honestly, I want it to go on until at least Season 8.
Answer: Season 8 is a stretch. This is really a two-part question. The first part is about how long I realistically think that the show will last, based on speculation and circumstantial evidence. The second is about how long I personally believe the show should last, which is a different matter altogether.
To engage with the first part, we know that the show at least has in front of it another 13 episodes. After that, more might be made, or the show may maintain its success based on repeats. I can't predict when the show will end exactly, but it's pretty much a given that when Hasbro update the toy-line again, the show will be replaced. It's impossible to talk about "Friendship is Magic" without discussing it directly in parallel to the toys, as they both run off of each other and help to sustain one another. There

"Ya know, Rainbow, when ya asked if Ah wanted to 'take a roll in the hay,' Ah figured you had lost that colorful head'a yers."
Applejack and Rainbow Dash continued to play in the large bales of hay set beneath the pegasus' home. Between the diving, jumping, and rolling, the dried grass had begun to unravel into a cushioned blanket over the ground.
Dash laughed. "Now who has the 'gutter-brain'?"
Earlier that day, Dash had helped Old Pony Whitaker by moving clouds over his land to provide shade while he worked the fields. Though it wasn't an official order for the weather team, she had felt charitable that morning, taking it into her own hooves to move the spare clouds his way. Never the one to let a favor go unpaid, and without bits to spare, the farmer gave Dash the only thing he had; hay. With no real use for the bales, she decided to have some foalish fun, inviting AJ to join in.

It was magical, for both of them.
Korra and Asami were on vacation in the spirit world. After the threat of Kuvira, they were entitled for a well-earned rest. Korra knew her friend needed that the most. After the loss of her father, she wanted to make her feel good in any way possible.
Today, on this beautiful morning, they were taking a stroll on rolling hills crowned with trees of multicolored leaves—some were red, others were yellow, some blue, from all of the colors of the rainbow. Asami was beyond impressed and amazed by it. It was a treasure to see her as such for the Avatar.
The spiritual creatures of all sort welcomed them with warming fondness. Korra introduced them to Asami. This one looked like a child tasting candy for the first time. She was happy. Happiness embedded onto her friend’s face. And that happiness infected her.
Later that day, she took her to a swim as they both explored the oceanic depths that the spirit world had to offer. S

Why hate Lila?
Nine times out of 10, you will hear the average Hey Arnold fan tell you, "I HATE LILA!! SHE'S TOO PERFECT!! I CAN'T STAND HER!! ARRGGHH!!"
But I wonder, if this is just a surface opinion. I cannot speak for other Hey Arnold fans, but I wanted to write this little snippet of MY OPINION so that others would read it and give some thought to it. (And don't worry, I'll keep this short.)
IF YOU DON'T AGREE, PLEASE DON'T FLAME ME!! This doesn't contain Lila bashing; it's just my assessment of her character and an idea of probably why people do not like her. (I mainly think that on the surface, people strongly dislike the idea of her and Arnold being a couple, but this is an analysis of Lila's character in itself).
Now, last night I was watching the episode, "Ms. Perfect," when Lila first arrived on the scene of P.S. 118. At first, the girls pi
