Reyna began to wonder where Leo could possibly be taking her. They had been walking in the woods for what seemed like at least half an hour.
Carpe DiamThe first thing he wanted to do when he got back from saving the world was to take her to this small beach on Long Island. It was just outside the protection of camp, but just inside the range of the mist. It was only about half a mile wide, but it was hidden and unpopulated. There was no garbage, no people, no anything. For that night it was just the two of them.Carpe Diam3 years ago in Romance More Like This
There were a lot of similarities between Jason and Reyna, Leo noticed as he made a fire for the two of them once the sun had set. The way they carried themselves, the way they sat, the way they talked. It was all very different for the Greeks. It seemed kind of wondrous that Leo had gotten her to go out with him at all. He was a goofball and she was a Roman. (But who's to say Romans can't have a sense of humor?)
He sat down next to her on the towel, she pulled her hoodie closer to her body and moved, just slightly, closer to Leo.
"I'm glad you're back." She told him. he reached around her back and pulled her hair from it's br

Leo and Khione Proposal 6InceptionLeo and Khione Proposal 64 years ago in Romance More Like This
Leo was sitting with Khione, just out side of her palace. The two had a Romeo and Juliet thing going, without all the death. Fire and ice had fallen in love with each other and they weren't letting anything stop them, even if it meant sneaking all around Canada (and Leo not being properly warm for the rest of his life).
Leo wanted to marry her, but as a mortal he wasn't sure if he could, and being a son of Hephaestus didn't help his cause.
"Khione, let's get married," Leo blurted to her. She stared at him like he was crazy, but her expression shifted to one of pure happiness. Then to concern, "Leo I don't know if we can," She told him.
"We could do it in secret, like Romeo and Juliet or Pyramus and Thisbe,"
"All of them died! And besides, the gods see all. There is no way we could do this,"
"We could try,"
With that, Khione kissed Leo, "Of course I'll marry you Leo," they kept kissing.
Khione started to moan Leo's name over and over, but her voice started to get more m

"Percy," Reyna's voice was steady and demanding, "You know these people more than I do, so you can assure me that they will not be a threat to this camp.
Percy took a deep breath. "No." He turned towards Reyna. When their eyes met, Reyna's breath hitched as she tensed. "No, they will not be. And if they are, I will defend this camp with my life."
Percy walked forward; Reyna's eyes followed him. She felt something flutter within her. "We have to stay strong and focused now. The camp is counting on the both of us."
Percy stopped in his tracks and faced his colleague.
"Both of us.", he muttered, "Us."
"What?" Reyna felt herself blush when she heard him.
"Nothing. I was just-uh-are you saying I'm not strong and focused?"
"No! I just meant that we should be-you know. I just thought it because your friends and the truth a

"Well, I am a praetor, and it is not in my job description to smile,"
"Really? Somebody's gotta tell Percy that, then. He's a flippin' derp machine."
"So are you."
"Yeah, but my derp is way cooler."
"Whatever you say, Valdez."
"I derp like a boss, Reyna. LIKE A BOSS."
"Yes. Besides, Percy is a graecus. So the 'derp' comes easy for him. And you."

"Joseph, how many times have I told you to not play with the candles?" Reyna sighed, pinching the bridge of her nose.
Before, she thought leading the legion was stressful.
Then she married Leo Valdez and had children.
The only sane one in her family was Liz - Reyna lost her own sanity years before, when she started dating the curly haired Latino.
"But Daddy does it!" Her youngest son whined.
"And I tell Daddy not to!" Reyna snapped, "Now stop playing with the candle!" Joseph made a frustrated noise through his nose, but he stopped. It wouldn't do to have his mother upset with him. Bad things happened when Mommy was upset with him.
"Thank you," Reyna breathed as her son ran off to find something else to do - probably tease his sister, which would lead Liz to lose her head and smack Joseph, which would make Joseph to fight back. Eventually, Hector would find them - with Liz winning, most likely - and jump to his brother's defense. Then, when Liz was about

Percy was shouting at her again. Annabeth realized suddenly. She saw his mouth move over and over, forming the same words, yet it hadn't registered until now. She shook her head a tiny bit. Didn't he understand she couldn't move? This was her test, her punishment. She could only put it off for so long, and now it had come for her.
The bars on the gate slowly lowered, separating them. Percy's eyes widened, a shout forming on his lips. He was only a second too late, they collided with the ground with a clank before he could stop them. He threw himself upon the bars, shaking them while calling her name. But she did not come.
He uncapped Riptide and furiously smashed it across the rods, trying to open them by force. Annabeth shook her head again, knowing it wouldn't open. It was obviously sealed with magic, but Percy did not stop.
And then something happened that Annabeth did not expect. Percy began to cry. His hands were bloody from bashing them across the bar

Twilight Sparkle ran through the stone hallways under the Marjave Citadel. Levitating in front of her, in her magical grip, was a large obsidian stone in the shape of a cylinder. It was jet black and almost featureless, save for the gold accents at either end, each featuring a single amethyst gemstone set within.
The unicorn emerged in a small room, dominated by a spiral staircase spinning upward. She quickly ran up the stairs. At her rapid pace, she arrived at the top in no time at all, and leaped through the broken frame of the formerly hidden doorway.
The shining blue hallways glowed as Twilight galloped through. She passed paintings, doors and delicate vases, and she knew the hordes had not gotten this far. They still had time.
Reaching a pair of double doors at the end of a hallway, she burst through, arriving in the main atrium.
Sitting at the centre of the room, seven stone pedestals were arranged in a circular formation. Three of the pe

#67) Is clopping bad? I've done it before and I don't really understand why other bronies find it disgusting. Maybe it's just me. >.<
Answer: With the amount of clopping questions I receive with this column, it's hardly a wonder why a lot of people think that bronies are sexual deviants. Now, in terms of your question itself, the fact that you don't see why other people might find it disgusting is worrying, because you're admitting to not being able to contemplate why people would think it odd to masturbate to cartoon animals.
To be honest, to apply a label of 'bad' on clopping is a big generalisation, as it all comes down to opinion. It is my opinion that, while masturbating to ponies in itself isn't a problem, the content itself is bad, insofar as that shit seems to be everywhere. What's worse than being into it, though, is being proud of it. It's one thing to masturbate to ponies if that's what turns you on, there's no point in holding back on it just because

This work of fiction contains material that may be sensitive to some readers (murder, gore and death). Viewer discretion is advised.
"There is evil within the hearts of all ponies. Such is the balance of nature. Good can only be prevalent for so long before Evil musters its forces, and seizes upon the heart twisting friendships into war, loyalty into deceit, and kindness into unadultered hate."

#64) I'm at college and my room-mate doesn't know that I like MLP. I'm embarrassed to mention it to him, but it's a problem because I can't draw or watch ponies with him in the room...which is all the time. What advice do you have for me?
Answer: I think you should be at an age now where you should be accepted for your inoffensive interests. He probably has his own interests that could be seen as embarrassing. You're living together for the foreseeable future, and so it's not healthy to keep something to yourself that you want to be a part of. It won't be much fun spending an entire year, or perhaps longer, hiding your interest and avoiding drawing and so on.
Don't make an effort to 'tell' him: that's making it more important than it needs to be. Just do what you usually do draw ponies and watch the episodes on Youtube or whatever. If he asks what you're watching, again, don't go overboard. Announcing that you're a 'brony' is unnecessary. Just say that it's a show

Somewhere Only We KnowAfter being away from home for so long, what you remember becomes what is really there and what is there becomes a foreign plaint. That was my biggest fear as the Argo landed on the shores of Camp Half Blood. That what I thought Camp was wouldn't be there any more and that these ideas in my head of what camp was would all be some lie.Somewhere Only We Know3 years ago in Romance More Like This
The Atlantic breeze felt normal, unlike the Pacific Ocean, which was foreign. The air of camp smelt the same as I had hoped it would: impossibly clean for a place so close to New York.
From the docks of the Argo II was able to see the strawberry fields, the forest, the lake, and the cabins. Camp hadn't changed; it was the place I had hoped it would be.
It really felt like home. For the first time in months of imaging what camp would be like and spending months adjusting to Roman life, I was back where I belonged. Camp Half Blood was simple; there were no temples or forums or shops, just some strawberries and a beach. But even after being in the

La granja de manzanas era un lugar de mucho movimiento durante la primavera. Dos jóvenes ponis machos araban los campos mientras que una poni gris entregaba un cargamento de semillas y herramientas que llegaban por correo, entre los árboles de manzana se podían divisar otros dos ponis más.
En medio de todo el trajín llegó una visitante que bajaba del cielo, con cautela aterrizó, dio una mirada y abrió el portón dirigiéndose a la hacienda. Una potranca, de pelaje verde claro y crin de colores rizados que andaba por la hacienda cargando unas canastas en su espalda fue la primera en notar la presencia de la visitante.

Leo always found himself attracted to the same type of girl: hot, strong, and completely out of his league. He knew it. His friends knew it. Even the people who didn't know him all that well knew that he tended to crush on girls that were way above him. It was just one of those things people knew about him. So, of course, no one was surprised that, when they reached Camp Jupiter, Leo set his eyes on the camp's praetor, Reyna. She fit his type exactly; a strong, beautiful young woman with a position of power that made her completely out of reach to the mechanic son of Hephaestus.
What did come to surprise so many of the group from Camp Half-Blood was when Reyna, for all her rather solitary, serious nature, seemed to show an interest in the Greek demigod. It particularly caught Jason off-guard, knowing Reyna from the memories that were returning to him. From what he remembered of the daughter of Bellona, Leo was as far from her own t

#43) I'm a casual fan, and I'm afraid to dip my foot deeper into the pool of the fandom. A friend of mine is attending a pony convention soon. Should I attend the convention? I'm still not 100% sure about 'bronies'. Thanks!
Answer: I think a convention would be the place to go if you're really into the fandom and wish to spend time with other people who are also really into the fandom. I know several people who have attended pony conventions, and they've given me mixed feedback. Some have really enjoyed themselves, and have met some interesting people. Others have found encounters with other bronies to be unnerving and odd (one got pounced on by a guy in a fur-suit). Therefore, to be on the safe side, you may wish to think twice about visiting a convention.
Then again, you have a mixture of sensible and extreme bronies anywhere you look within the fandom, and so as long as you can handle a bunch of people who you may think are taking it too far, you may also

An imposter, masquerading in plain sight
Her diabolical schemes, an abomination

True form revealed

Just as in times old
The power of friendship untold
Uplifted higher, brighter, a sight to behold
The might of love so bold
