I would be a star smaller than yours but we'd be stars together, and
you and I would have our special place, in the sky.

#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 Love? When all is Hate.

As a child, I knew not of you,
What was false, or on the other hand, true
As eyes turn on me, cold,
You alone take me in your arms and hold
On to what is left of a little girl who never made it out
Of that dream to be forgotten.
I thought things were forever
Dare I say anything could die, for that was never.
But life is a funny thing, you know?
You believe so strongly in Now that when you look back..
Now was only Then and then you thought things were perfect
But as it passed, your view collapses. It shatters. Like a cracked window,
The view you saw, now distorted. Contorted. Deformed. Horrific.
I still believe in you. Even though all that has come to past has been nothing but true
And true it is, true with all the evil life could do

Warning from GodJesus has warned me to get things right with him. I urge you Brethren and sisters in Christ, do not delay; as Christ will not delay his coming in the soon and imminent Rapture. Start believing, be sincere. Follow Jesus. He says: "Follow Me, I AM the ONLY way to the Father in Heaven; the only way to be saved from Hell." He tells me to say that He Loves you dearly, all of you. It's not in his will that anyone should perish, but that everyone receive eternal Life from his son, Jesus.

I seriously blame the creators of the 2012 TMNT. They are making Raph out to be a princess. So this is what I think is in Raph’s room. This continues after my Mona Lisa and Venus De Milo stories and also references my other Drabbles. I have no idea what is going to happen in future episodes, but I like to guess. I guess April will forgive the Turtles at some point.
April sat sulking on the sofa in the common room of the lair and Casey sat next to her, rubbing her back trying to comfort her. “It’s okay, babe. We didn’t need to go.”

Despite her protests against going to bed, it wasn’t long before the red-haired girl started to rhythmically snore softly.
Sophie slipped out of the blanket and floated silently to the window. As she neared it, the lock unfastened and the door opened. Sophie glanced back at her friend, checking her breathing and brain waves. April was out cold.
Sophie went through the window, closing it behind her and waited on the balcony as she checked for anyone that may see her. When all was clear, she lifted herself to the roof and gently touched down on the gravel next to the sleeping boy. His head had fallen to the left side and rested on his shoulder; his mouth gaped wide open.
She reached down and touched his arm. His exposed skin was freezing! Sophie scanned April’s room below for a spare blanket. There was one folded in the closet. She picked it up and brought it to the roof in the same manner she had brought herself there.

Don did not appreciate the rough treatment or the confusion that followed Casey’s abrupt action. His heels dug furrows into the dirt and his rump scraped across the rock strewn ground when Casey unceremoniously plunked him down. If Don had any kind of mobility, he would have shown Casey just how displeased he was.
Instead, Don grunted his indignation as he tried to pull away from Casey’s hand.
“Don’t,” Casey whispered urgently against his ear. “Please Don, be quiet.”
Casey lifted his hand from Don’s mouth and leaned in close enough so that Don could see the boy’s dark eyes reflecting the small amount of light that filtered into their hiding place.
“Donatello!” Raph shouted.
Don’s first instinct was to sit forward but Casey physically restrained him, whispering, “Shhh.”
Frustrated, Don pushed against Casey, trying to dislodge his hands but suddenly stopped st

Casey watched Don’s approach without expression. As he waited for the turtle to reach him, he grabbed a dry towel and stood up.
The complete lack of emotion that Casey was showing as he dried his hands and arms took Don aback. Don was used to seeing some outward sign of Casey’s cocky attitude and he found his poker face to be disconcerting.
If Don hadn’t been sure how to start the conversation before, he was certainly at a loss for words now. Casey was willing to pick up the verbal gauntlet though.
“I didn’t interrupt something between you and April did I? The two of ya’ was looking pretty cozy,” Casey said in a monotone.
Belatedly Don remembered that during their earlier conversation Casey had asked how close he and April were. He’d basically told Casey that was none of his business and it still wasn’t as far as Don was concerned.

Don woke up on a cold stone floor, feeling as though he’d received a good hard kick in the head.
It was pounding steadily as he pushed himself off of the floor and looked around. He was locked in a cell very similar to the one he’d helped Mr. O’Neil escape from, so his guess was that they were trapped somewhere beneath the TCRI building.
They. His painfully aching head cleared enough for him to remember the last thing that had happened before he lost consciousness. Something that felt like the shock from a lightning bolt had hit him as he was carried through the opening in the side of the Kraang’s headquarters. Casey was still clinging to him at the time and must have been shocked into unconsciousness as well.
Casey wasn’t in the cell with him and Don frantically rushed to the door, pulling at it before looking through the narrow set of bars that served as a window. If Casey was knocked out while they

It was immediately obvious that Casey’s touch was different as the boy’s hands curled around Don’s thigh. When Casey had massaged Don’s arms back to life, his movements had been brisk and his grip tight.
Now Casey’s hands slid across Don’s skin, covering every inch as though memorizing the pattern of Don’s muscles. Don gasped slightly when Casey’s fingers dipped inwards to touch the more sensitive skin on his inner thighs.
“W . . . what are you doing?” Don asked, stuttering from surprise.
“I don’t know enough about the differences between our bodies,” Casey said, his voice a little hoarse. “I can’t just go squeezing around; I have to get some idea of how your muscles are set up.”
“We aren’t . . . aren’t all that different from you,” Don said as hastily as he could. Casey’s hands didn’t even pause in their examination.

A white-robed man leapt overhead, ignoring the screams from the people below as they scrambled away from the body, the area emptying temporarily. He sprinted away from the grotesque scene, landing on the next rooftop and making sure that the blood-red feather was still tucked safely away in his large, brown belt.

Seven repositioned Three's arm over his shoulder as he carefully led him out of the woods and back into the wide, grassy yard just outside of William's house. His jaw tightened as Three's weight fell entirely on him as the older alien dipped out of consciousness with a miserable groan.
“Go get Two,” said Seven when Six joined his side. He'd just lifted Three's other arm as if to try and bear some of his weight, but Seven thought it better to send him ahead for help. Six's wide round eyes were filled with worry for his fallen comrade. His pupils dilated as he examined the large, sticky tail barb that was embedded in Three's meaty forearm. Blood and poison oozed around the entry point, prompting Six to move faster than ever back to the house.
