Thoughts on Double Rainboom
Okay, the first thing I want to note here is the criteria by which I'm judging this. I recognize that it's a fan work made by non-professionals, and that it likely won't live up to the show's quality level, and as such a lot of the critiques I'm going to make are going to seem a bit on the harsh side. However, I have a reason for this: the animation has been, for over a year at this point, touted as “the first-ever fan-made episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". That's a direct quote from DoubleRainboom.com's FAQ page. The guy heading the project was quoted at Bronycon as saying "It'll feel just like an episode". There's an obvious implication here: That "Double Rainboom" is intended to be comparable to an episode of the canon show, both in terms of production values and in terms of tone. It's not labeled a fan video that's merely based on the show; it's labeled as something that's intended to

Of her special guest they are not yet aware.
They know she is joined by someone quite vital,
And soon they are graced by the one with a title.
In a separate cart a statue is towed,
But their identity makes Twilight explode.
For resting in the seat is the one they've abhorred,
Yes, her guest is the villain Discord.
The mares are astounded; they don't want him back!
Does the princess remember his vile attack?
This is not at all what the ponies would choose,
But the situation the princess quickly does defuse.
She reminds them that they handed him a defeat,
Something that they could assuredly repeat.
The princess's plan involves kind Fluttershy,
She thinks she will turn him into a good guy.
AJ and a beaver then begin to fight,
When Flutters steps in and sets it all right.
The six gather round and the princess does leave,
Looking rather pleased and a little naive.
Through their powers the statue springs back into life,
And just through his stret

The Bells Of Her FateThe Bells Of Her Fate1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
She waits in her prison, an asylum of cold stone
Waits with bated breath, a world all alone
Through endless hour after hour hopes the sadness will end
The glimmering of the crystals seems her only friend
Lies in wait under the mountain, cold air chills her core
Down in this austere confining dark mine, no clue what's in store
The shining one, her amore, awaits above in the light
No clue in his head the imposter has blinded his sight
Why has this happened to her, she can't begin to fathom or understand
Her wedding day was set, her bridal jubilation was already planned
The bells were supposed to be ringing with her ecstacy and delight
Instead confined to this cavern, trapped in a melancholic plight
Unaware the true identity of her captor and her machinations
The cruelty of her own suffering a blight upon the equestrian nation
The tears stream from her eyes as she begins to despair of salvation
The wedding guests up above oblivious to her station
The walls are closing in, hope lost, her w

Twilight Sparkle was never was much for relationships. She had her books to read after all. Only her brother Shining Armor meant anything to her. Well of course she loved her parents but she was never all to close to them, especially after she joined Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns. When she moved to Ponyville she still only remained close to Shining Armor, but somepony else seemed to catch her eye whenever she would read in the park. For some reason a rainbow would always distract her from her reading.
Twilight was laying on the bench in Ponyville park reading another novel about the flow of space time and geometric anomalies. She needed to know everything she could if she was going to perfect that time travel spell she used to try and warn herself or stop herself really...a few months ago. She giggled at herself upon the thought of how ridiculous she had acted that day. She was reading about the flow of hyperspace wormholes when all of a sudden she saw the flash of a rainb

Caution: Non-Canon Elements Treated Canonically
The following fan-script explores a storyline that takes place after the events of "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls" and contains a non-canonical pairing. Reader discretion advised.
SCENE: Ponyville Park
Twilight Sparkle and new beau Flash Sentry walk down a path in the park, watching the leaves provide a splash of colour to the ground below.
Flash Sentry: "I gotta say that I like autumn leaves."
Twilight: "I've always loved the leaves falling. They're so pretty."
Flash Sentry: "Not quite as pretty as you."
Twilight: (long pause, Flash Sentry remains still) "I am not... You're such a cheeseball!"
(another long pause)
Twilight: (leans closer to Flash) "You're my cheeseball."

The Crystal Empire was slowly becoming engulfed in a mass of threatening, black clouds; dark as the deadliest of storms. Screams could be heard all around as the crystal ponies began to panic. Up in the tallest tower in the city, Twilight found herself trapped within the confines of a black-crystal prison, the gems risen up from the ground, blocking any means of escape for the lavender unicorn. Just outside, Spike started to feel nervous. His eyes darted from side to side, his feet moved up and down like two, small pistons.
Twilight started to scramble within the crystal-walled trap, looking for the Crystal Heart with a set of panicked eyes.
"The heart? Where's the Crystal..." she started, voice q

#104) Aren't bronies and furries the exact same thing? I think it's funny that so many bronies get offended when they're compared to furries. I don't see furries getting quite as offended about the comparison. Hah.
Answer: This is really the million-dollar question: are bronies and furries the same thing? The answer is, awkwardly, a little bit of both. Let's set the cards upon the table: there are all sorts of variables that come into the equation when defining exactly what a brony is. That's the first difficulty; if a brony is merely an adult watching the show, then you can't effectively argue that they're furries by definition just for doing that. If you did, then any parent watching the show with their child, or anyone who watched "Watership Down" or "The Animals of Farthing Wood" as children, or myriad other cartoons about animals, would be furries, which is ludicrous.
Just watching "Friendship is Magic" doesn't create a latent association with furries, despite what s

Kirby felt cold, she awoke in total darkness. A bright light started shining, it was blinding. "Am I dead?" She asked. A young voice spoke "Far from it, you're quite alive!" The light shined away from her eyes. Two green eyes were looking at her. The eyes blinked at her and he backed up and turned off the little light in his hand. It was Barky. Beside him was a very small looking fari named Angel, she was wearing a nurse hat. Kirby blinked and rubbed her eyes. She then tried to get up and felt a throbbing pain from her head. She quickly grabbed her head and closed her eyes. She gave a little whimper of pain.
"Don't do that!" Barky grabbed her and gently placed her down. "You hit your head." He calmly says. She started rubbing her head, which was coved in bandage. She looked around. "Where am I?" She asked. Barky tilted his head "You're at the hospital. You and Azure-"Kirby's head shot up "AZURE?" She gasped, cutting off Barky "Is he OKAY?" She looked worried. "If you let me talk, I cou

How do I know what I know?
Am I brilliant, merely smart, average, or just plain dumb?
For this long I have meandered
Knowing and yet not knowing
Sure and yet unsure
Every time I think I know the answer
the word wrong hammers down
Each time I spoke with certainty
I was accused with assuming, even by myself
I don't know what I know
I thought I knew myself
Only now do I realize that this is not the case
Precious little can I say without a second guess
For three years I tried many approaches
all beginning with the once present assurance of the mind
all ending the same; a mere repeat of recent history
I stare down at the assignment before me
It's so easy
or is it?
This answer, I have known it since the start
or was I wrong in believing that it was right
I find myself in no-man's land
In times I venture my first choice
a red X is my reward
In times that I erase what surely must be wrong
and replace it with what must be right
the result is the same

Sitting in the gym, bored as always, Gary waited for another challenger. He was 18 and the leader of the Viridian City gym. He had spiky red-brown hair, green eyes, and just an annoyed look all the time. He hadn't had a good challenge in a long time, and at this rate the pokemon league must be as bored as he is with even less challengers. He thought about a variety of things, ranging from pokemon training techniques, to friends and family of his. He had the time after all. Today, however, was going to be different. It was late evening, and Gary was getting ready to go home for the night when someone walked in.
No, not someone, a group of people. What the hell do they want? He thought to himself as they stormed in. First off, a large mean looking person, who was in front of the group, ordered someone to turn the arrows on the floor off, Gary didn't protest and allowed the maintenance worker to do so. Next a bald guy wearing headphones or e
Asperger's No one really seems to understand me at all. I'm different from everyone else. I'm just a 16 year old girl, am I not? Although, I play Pokémon. A lot. I mean, a lot. It's my life. I know all of them. All 649. All their cries, their types, abilities, moves, everything. I play Pokémon everyday. But I guess it's because I seclude myself in my own little world that no one ever talks to me.

with eyes set forward faithfully.
No doubts or ludicrous duty,
I strut my path, head worry-free,
at pace that does not 'wait and see',
give in or waver fitfully;
my name passed down in history
through friends, my mark and family.
As time moves on my place will be
beside my love perpetually,
thrust headlong down this road as we,
to follow dreams and fantasy.
As one to bond with all we see
in wake of life as perfect me.

Standing there at the foot of Twilight's door.
"Come on," she thought to herself. "You can do this."
Surely Twilight would understand. Surely she would be able to help. She could use magic better than anypony else in Ponyville.
"I can do this. I'm Rainbow Dash!"
"I'll just go in there, and tell her what's up."
Dash gulped down the lump in her throat.
"I know she can fix me."
"Okay Spike, are you sure you want to go through with this?" Twilight questioned, unsure of whether or not Spike's plan was a good idea.
"Of course Twilight! I'm just so short! That has to be why Rarity isn't interested."
"Spike, making yourself taller isn't going to make Rarity fall in love with you."
He stroked an imaginary goatee, lost in thought.
"You know, you're right! She's into fashion, right? Surely she wants a man with great style!"
Twilight sighed. "Spike, you're fine the way you are. Just go talk to h--"
She was interrupted by the sound of hooves clopping against her front door.

So many hindrances
When you're not really there
Lies leave you in the light
While truth leaves you in the dark
Perhaps that is the way
To prevent broken hearts

While space distorts
