The Very End of Innocents Once a long time ago, there was a little girlThe Very End of Innocents2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who dreamed that she could be anything she wanted to be
Happiness filled her heart and smiles were always on her face
Not once has she even thought about negative thing
Only imagination filled her mind
Everyone loved her
Her parents, to the teachers at school, to the other kids at school
Even the meanest and grumpiest of people loved her
Exciting to be around and very smart indeed
Sometimes a little hyper at times and maybe even clumsy
A beautiful little girl
An outstanding one
Friendly and caring
She never lost hope in things
She grew up.

Chihiro Fujisaki let out an agitated sigh. Despair had always been there for him. When the kids at school made fun of him for being the smallest and quietest, despair was his only friend. All he wants is for these other students of Hope's Peak Academy to learn to love despair, and they want to escape it? How annoying.
He sat at his computer, which he had finished designing a portable remote control for Monobear on, so he wouldn't have to go hours and hours without an alibi during the day, hiding out in some dusty control room. "Which one will snap first?" he asked to no one in particular. Perhaps it will be the big, strong girl, Oogami-san. Or maybe it will be Togami-san, he must be desperate to get back to controlling the world that doesn't exist anymore. Or maybe it will be Maizono-san, the cutesy girl that no one would ever suspect. Either way, it really didn't matter. He didn't care, as long as it was someone with the guts to commit a murder. It was a couple more minutes until Nigh

It takes you years to bring it back, test it, run the first scans. They reveal it is still intact. You record it as a small digital miracle, come alive from two deaths and the partial mess that once was your memory.
The integrity of the data does surprise you, but you don’t give it much thought. It may be a mystery, but it is just like her; in the end, you never really understood how she made it.
What counts is that the backup is whole — it is ready to be watched, studied, put to good use. Even modified, maybe. Whatever it takes, you always put your faith in what you believe is a good starting point.
And trying to get her back — the valuable part, the brilliant testing, with none of the side-effects — would onl

Samus' eyes opened slowly as she awoke from her slumber. Her head throbbed as a fog began to lift in her mind. As she began to become aware of her surroundings, she realised that she was strapped into a chair in her zero suit. She also took in where she actually was: she was in a poorly lit room that was either in a facility or aboard a ship. She had to squint her eyes because, although the room was poorly lit, what little light there was made Samus' head feel like it was about split open. Her hangover level headache was made all the worse by the heavily synthesized voice that began to boom in the room.
"It's about time you woke up." Samus would have clutched her aching head had her arms not been restrained.
"W-where am I?" she asked quietly so as not to made her headache worse, hoping that whoever had abducted her would hear her question so she wouldn't need to raise her voice any further.

As in magic-casting Witch? Samus was interested since, well, there was no such thing as magic. Sure, there was the whole Chozo spiritualism thing that blurred the lines a bit, but no Witch kind magic. Either way, she decided to find out, and hey, if the thing worked as advertised, magic. She inserted the upgrade into her zero suit, and waited for the changes to begin.Metroid: HoU: The Witch upgrade3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
After a few seconds, Samus didn't feel any changes. No clothing changes, nothing. She did, however, start to feel very unpleasant, like she was sick, but somehow not quite to the level of feeling nauseated or that any part of her body wasn't working properly. Her skin was also starting to feel strange, and she quickly walked over to the mirror to take a look at herself
At the mirror, Samus initially didn't notice anything different about herself. But she had looked at her body

The loud, mocking laughter echoed throughout the Netherworld valleys as Overlord Laharl's sword split yet another zombie's skull down the middle. He planted his boot on the undead creature's chest and yanked his blade free with a sickening squelch. A light clapping sound drew his attention, and he turned around to find his "servants," the self-proclaimed Beauty Queen Etna and Angel Trainee Flonne approaching him.
"Great job, Laharl!" Flonne applauded with a sweet smile, holding her staff under her arms as she flapped her tiny white wings.
Etna meanwhile, chuckled as she rested her spear on her shoulder. "I think that was the last one. And, unless I'm mistaken, you gained another level Prince!"

The first thing you need
to know about people is this:
If you cut off our head,
we will grow two in its place.
We will divide and conquer
until there's nothing left
but tiny gaping mouths,
clacking and salivating
at the crumbs of an empire.
They tell me hurt is like
a paper cut:
quick and forgotten,
Hurt is the first step
off a balcony,
the first gasp
in a chain reaction
screaming from the railing
to beyond the pavement.
When I finally hit the ground,
I looked up and saw my halo
dangling from the edge,
He said, she said,
I wanted, he lost, she won,
I ruined this, I broke your heart,
he left me,
I miss you.
This is nothing new.
Your tragedy is always
what's it like to realize
every slash on your soul
has an identical twin?
What's it like to know
you're going to die
the same way everyone does:
scared and alone?
We are disposable.

Applejack glanced at the sky, pausing her applebucking as she noticed a gray coated mare with a blond mane glide down from the sky. Even if she hadn't recognized the pony herself, the mailbag slung around Derpy's shoulder would have tipped her off. Noting the lack of any other Apple family pony present on the farm, Applejack trotted up to the mailmare. "Whatcha got for me, Derpy?"
The gray pegasus just smiled, pulling a letter out of her bag for Applejack to see. The farm pony's eyebrows lifted as she read the address, her surprise growing as she opened the letter and read its contents. "Well, ah'll be..."
Focused as she was on the letter, she did not notice Derpy take off, heading towards Sugarcube Corner. The mailmare had plans, and many muffins had to be ordered...

"This Twilight Sparkle"
Poem by Picardy Third
I find a familiar tune
A repeated fate plays again
As I walk under cover of the moon
To hear them laugh
To hear them jeer
Like the cries of demons
Painfully reminding me what I fear
I am the Great and Powerful
Oh, what point remains?
I have lost all that I own
Do I even hold true my name?
I turn my head and glance
The horizon dark, shadows high
Barely in sight, a village stands
Under Luna's gem of the sky
By folly act of children
Disaster struck, peril ensued
And from Everfree's forbidden depths emerged
A great beast of midnight blue
My efforts, though valiant
Were but foal's play
Defeated and upstaged by one
Magic powerful and bright as day
This unicorn, this hero
This ray of hope, this Twilight
Left me homeless, left me broken
Running scared into the night
But as my hooves tire
As my body aches
I know I cannot run any longer
I must do what it takes
Courage in tow
A hastened, furious pace
With fervor I return

A couple of moments later his plaintive call came from the store room. "Aw, now where did I leave my rain slicker? It was just here yesterday!"

Sonic groaned as he sat up on the couch, the loud ringing of his telephone waking him from his afternoon nap. Didn't people realise that saving the world was hard work? He thought he deserved a little relaxation after all these years!
Sighing, the Blue Blur leaned over and picked up the receiver, holding it to his ear. "Hello?" he asked irritably, rubbing at his eyes.
"Hello there, blue boy."
Sonic nearly dropped the phone, snapped out of his grogginess by Rouge's voice. It had been two months since the little "incident" at Rouge's home, and it didn't seem like Rouge had spoken about it... but at every opportunity she made a small, seemingly-innocent comment that let Sonic know she remembered it. Such as offering to take him lingerie shopping with her and Amy, or asking if he wanted to try on her new high heels.

The room was almost bare; a cabin in one of the corners, a desk where books and parchment was laying all over, and a bed were the only things in Lily Feather's room; not that she couldn't put stuff in it, she just didn't feel like it. The only thing on her wall was a Wonderbolts poster of Spitfire.
She'd been a Wonderbolts fan ever since the orphanage went on a trip to Canterlot to see the display. She didn't really feel like going. When they all were there to see it, she snuck away and began looking at the surroundings. Suddenly, she heard a voice behind her say, "Hey, you're not allowed to be here!"

Sandra, the jewel hunter, loved to leave notes before any kind of robbery. It was her trademark. This note said only that she would steal "The Flame of Hope".

The good reverend had no thoughts for a moment. After thinking on the subject for a time, he returned word to Elazul saying the "The Flame of Hope" could well be the sacred torches from the temple at Gato.
