Of any country it could represent,
Nor any republic, for which it may stand,
Any nation, in existence,
May be lived in without doing so.
I do pledge allegiance to good causes
And to the betterment of society,
To work that helps all people,
Humanity, and perseverance,
And to a better tomorrow.

"Come back here you coward!" I shrieked, slamming my fists on the ground angrily. Nothing replied. I felt tears stinging my eyes as I searched frantically for that damned Febble in the darkness, and soon gave up, knowing there was no way could find him in time. There wasn't even anything to search behind, or search in, there was only heavy shades of black surrounding my entire body. I felt completely useless as I walked around, knowing none of my powers would grant me freedom from this dark hell.
"What do you want from me?!" I screamed upwards, partly hoping someone, something, would answer. But alas, I only heard silence. That terrible, damned silence. I grabbed onto my head lightly gripping my hair, trying to think of what to do. I felt like I was losing my mind. After everything me and Fionna went through, I was cursed to this place, and she was going to Glob, I can't even think of what will happen to her without gagging.

"Oh, it-it's no big deal. As long as I get things for Angel." I say as I bend my head down. Angel did push me around a lot. I guess it didn't bother me. But there was one pony that always stood up for me.
Just the thought of her name made me blush. She was so beautiful, and her personality was amazing. Her striking rainbows in her hair flashed in the sun light. Everything about her was something to talk about. She had almost no flaws. Sure she bragged sometimes, but she always made me feel

Not even the quietest sound escaped from the timid young girl.
“Honey, your mother asked you a question, you should respond,” stated the gentlemen who sat across from the woman who spoke. He rubbed his freshly shaved face as he waited for a response.

Its a Sunday afternoon,
Drowsy and dark.
It starts to rain, black streaked
Pebbles on a sky that gradually
As the world moves forward
Beneath our feet.
In the morning, it will still be raining.
The sky, however, will be clear blue
The pebbles streaked with gold
And rainbow-scars drawn tight
Against the slowly-softening light.

It is night
And I hear the soft thwip of the thread,
Sliding carefully into its place.

Toss and turn
And tell campfire tales of darkness.

The cakes wont rise,
The cookies wont set,
She cries and she cries
Then is picked up and held
And shes human, oh so human,
And strong, oh so strong.

Paper tears and it preaches

Chapter Eight Part Two: First Mate
And at last, following each other, they caught up with him. It was not in a good place. They were at the top and back of the ship, in the huge cavernous bulge that housed the ship's dozen or so 50-foot-high, automatic, mostly untended engines. A few feet in from the metal ceiling and walls was a separate inner wall and ceiling, a lattice-like freestanding structure like a huge inverted basket woven of six-inch-wide metal strips, forming a loose weave with yard-wide gaps. The metal lattice served to contain the heavy energy discharges that occasionally erupted from the engines, to catch them and funnel that excess, waste energy into batteries that converted it for use inside the ship. The upper part of the room was rather dark, nearly all the lighting being some 40 feet below; and the blue-white, crackling discharges sparking across the metal weave like lightning would hav

WHY ITS GOOD SOME VILLAINS GOT REFORMED AND WHY ITS GOOD SOME OTHERS DID NOT.
I think this whole "Freak out"-thing the Community is having right now about the Return and Reformation of some Villains in the Show is a bit exaggerated...
Just because three villains became good, doesn't mean they are going to reform EVERY kind of villain now.
Night Mare Moon had to turn back to normal because she is the Royal Princess of the Night, Celestias Sister. And even if Celestia could have continue bringing Day and Night by herself, Equestria needs to stay in balance with the two of them. Everybody loves Luna and the first episode would have been weird if they just KILLED Night Mare Moon. But Luna is not the point because nobody ever compared about her Transformation. But still, Luna is also a Villain who got reformed.
Trixies return was already planned after her very first Episode and for me her return was nothing surprising because she didn't really learn her lesson the las

Words could not do justice to the sheer joy that Rainbow Dash and her friends felt on the day she had finally gotten a letter of approval from the Wonderbolt Academy. It was a dream come true. Congratulations echoed loudly from Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Applejack and Twilight Sparkle almost harmoniously with one another. What made it all the better was the smiling glance Dash had shared with Rarity at that moment from across all of her other ecstatic friends.
Neither of them needed to say a word. It was a moment of mutual acknowledgment that only the two most ambitious ponies amongst the six of them could share. There was more to it, however. Dash could never forget what Rarity had done for her that one night, which now seems so long ago. In hindsight, it was a little embarrassing to think about, but she'd never let go of that memory for anything. Who could forget when the least likely among your friends be

Once the doors had shut behind her, Garrus leaned back against the console, his eyes wide as he stared at the space where she’d been standing a few moments previously. Had she really said that? Had he really said that? He raised a hand to his face, bowing his head into his palm, closing his eyes as he tried to settle his quickly pumping heart. It had only been a few weeks since they’d returned to the Normandy, just a few weeks since she’d climbed those stairs and back into his life.
A few weeks since his life had flashed before his eyes when that chopper had risen and blown his world to pieces.

Learning to Smile
I was a child of stones
A daughter of the rock farmers
No joy was known there
But gloom and endless working
Under the hot, blazing sun
The barren fields, all without green
Granites were our flowers
Our grass made of sand and gravel
I breathed the choking air on the wordless world
I walked on soil bare of seeds
In a poor family among rocks
A child was born with a bright mane
Pink coat in colorless home
Such a punchline in a grey world
Gathered rocks in silence
Aching hooves our pay for a hard work
Dust on my eyes and throat
I dreamed of world out of my life
I breathed the choking air on the wordless world
I walked on soil bare of seeds
Throughout the days I gazed repressed at hollow skies
A solace for indifference
The tremor passed over our farm

"Clenching my fists, I stood there in the middle of the hallway, trying to tone out everyone around me. The louder the noise became, the closer that dark aura crept. My head shook and I continued moving until I got outside where the noise suppressed, only the dark aura still crept closer. I was sick of it, just because I liked someone whose sex happens to be the same as mine, doesn't mean I'm not human. I still bleed the same colour and grow up at the same speed as everyone around me. People make fun of me, calling me names all the time, and the worst of it all is that it doesn't matter where I am, people do.

Gabrielle is an ex model, as she got disgraced by the industry when she fell over on a catwalk when walking in 12 inch heels. When she fell she twisted her ankle so couldn't model for a few months while she recovered. However she was banned from modelling on the catwalk again.
She was forced to move out of her trendy apartment in the Big City and move to a small town, where my other characters live.
Bronte found her one day in the Bluebird Cafe, knowing instantly she wasn't a local. She sort of recognised her so went to go and introduce herself. But Gabrielle made a massive scene about a complimentary slice of chocolate cake and some non-diet soda and stormed out, not letting a bandaged ankle stop her from making a dramatic exit.
Bronte followed her but Gabrielle mistook her interest for prying in her business and snapped at Bronte, hurting her feelings and making her cry.

Diamond tears from burnt amber eyes. Diamond tears that fell, uncared for, onto the ground.
