Welcome back to Nostalgiaviews, where all our collective childhoods come to bite us back in the asses.
I did a poll on my Deviantart site last year asking my readers if I should review "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls," to my surprise, and relief, many of my fine readers said no. This is a genuine shock to me; the last time I did a poll, it ended up in a landslide that had me review "Troll 2" back in 2011, I guess my readers really wanted to see me in pain back then. However, this was a case where it took a tiebreaker to decide if I was to review "Equestria Girls" or Disney's "Hercules," the majority ruled for Disney, so, that's what we have today folks. But, before we do, pull out your notebooks kids, it's time for me to exposit information you either do or don't care to read. If you do, who knows, you might just learn something...
It's the late 1990's, The Walt Disney Studios is in a bit of rut. After pulling themselves out of the creative slump that

You know, I actually feel really stupid for all the nitpicking I gave to the movie's historical aspect in the last part.
I realized only too late that mythology often isn't one that is required to give an exact date. People created myths to try and make sense of the world, using real life trials to translate into metaphorical monsters and gods to explain elements in the world to make sense of them. The Hydra Heracles battles?
A representation of mankind's lust, no matter how many times you try to cut ties with it, more will always grow in it's place.
Even the idea of a demigod was created to invoke a personal connection between mortals and the gods. If you think this idea has passed away with ancient cultures, take a hard look at our modern religions that people still worship today, if you think about it, major religions follow the same concept; a demigod that was conceived by an deity brings balance to the world in some way or another (except Buddhism as they follow the idea that desi

"I'm home," Eris smiled and appeared out from the shadow. They pets swam to her except for one. "Where's Cetus?"
There was silence as the Goddess quickly moved away from her pets and saw him, breathing heavily as his stars were dying out. So this was time for him, she thought, already time?

The creature looked up at her and moved closer, Eris smiled and hugged her minion. The feeling of Cetus soon faded away as the other came close to comfort them. It was true, Cetus had been dying for a while, but she didn't except him to die now. Eris looked down at the emptiness that was Cetus remaining. She sighed and walked to the globe.

Alice opened her mouth a few times, but then closed it every time with a new expression of thoughtful consideration on the matter. The Hatter, for his part, seemed to have broken his eyebrows, for they were stuck in the up position and made him look like he had just heard a word that couldn't be spoken or a color that couldn't be seen, as if he couldn't process its fleeting nature. His left hand crossed over was a dead weight in her lap, and she had forgotten she was holding onto it with both of hers when he suddenly spoke, though it was very soft, and Alice started when he did.AlicexHatter Short Story 16 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Letters from LeGume (Contest Entry)Author's note: These are letters from Gaston to Drizella Trémaine (I have chosen to use Drizzie's French name, Javotte, here.)Letters from LeGume (Contest Entry)1 year ago in Humor More Like This
Ma chère Mademoiselle de Trémaine,
I hope this letter finds you well! We have had our first snow down here, but the cold hasn’t quite set in yet. How is the weather in Paris this time of year?
I have been able to write a little more each day, and my hands are getting stronger. Mrs Potts lets me walk all the way to the garden now. Of course, I’ll always have a limp, but it really is a miracle that I can walk again anyway, after that fall. Chip has kept up with our lessons, and says he will make a decent calligrapher out of me yet. (I am not so sure.) Please excuse the wobbliness of my handwriting. I have gotten sadly out of practice.
We are halfway through Androcles and the Lion now, Chip and I. I think you would love the story, Javotte. It does have a lion in it, of course, but he’s as gentle as a lamb

Howl's Moving Castle Magic Lessons </b>Howl's Moving Castle6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"When manipulating the weather you have to keep tight control on the flow of your magic. Release too much as you could end up with an energy surge and end up doing something you didn't intend," Master Howl explained, leaning back on his elbows. He and Markl were reclining on a blanket in the sunshine beside Star Lake, having their magic lesson outside.
Sophie was flitting in and out of the Castle with baskets of clothes, humming happily to herself. She had only been with them a few weeks, but already Markl didn't know how they had coped without her. It was certainly nice to have clean clothes all of the time.
"Because weather is a universal occurrence you have to keep your magic focused on a single area, preferably wherever you are at that moment," Howl continued. "Its far more difficult to try and change the weather on the other side of the country, and, let's face it, what would be the point?"
Markl frowned at Sophie, only half listening to his Master's
A Villanelle on ExistenceNothing in life is ever thineA Villanelle on Existence3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Except that old reclusive mind,
You are yours and I am mine.
Such is creation's sole design
Give mankind sight but render blind,
Nothing in life is ever thine.
Solitary is every shrine
In which existence is confined,
You are yours and I am mine.
Lonely are they who walk the line
And yet they know it is defined:
Nothing in life is ever thine.
Aloof the jackal sits to dine
And prey, in prayer does remind:
You are yours and I am mine.
As though birth and death lent no sign,
It takes man all his days to find
Nothing in life is ever thine,
You are yours and I am mine.

Like her smile
And it becomes her more than she
Could ever admit
But sometimes he finds himself missing
That mousy brown color
That drew him in the first place
He still remembers their first meeting,
A simultaneous rescue
The way her braid flew behind
As they strolled amongst the clouds
But he would never tell her,
Especially not now,
When she stands with arms akimbo
And glares at him with piercing eyes
She wouldn't appreciate the comment
Claim he was "slithering out" again
So he keeps his mouth shut
"You're late," she says
He shrugs back his shoulders
And quickly pulls her into his arms
One arm around her waist,
The other in her hair
"It's the king's fault, not mine."
She protests, tries to escape
(Old Sophie remains, at least in her temper)
But he gives her a kiss
Runs his fingers through silver
She sighs and gives in
And he decides he likes it much more
Than a silly brown braid
And besides, starlight suits black

"—er, who?" They had not been speaking of anyone, and he was thrown off at this interruption of what he was trying to tell her. He hadn't really wanted this conversation, but felt a slight obligation to at least try, in that roundabout way, to explain things to her.

The lights shine brighter for me
My footfalls are hard on the pavement
I will not be stopped
I chased Death out the door
and under the pallor of the night sky,
she worked her way into my chest
Her fingers ventured forth
with the warmth to melt my iron doors
Now I smoke a cigarette in the bone yard
I sit here waiting, praying
for someone to lie by my side
The wind moans like a lover in my ear
It whispers 'come back to me'
Walk with me through my haunted places
If we grow a shadow, it'll soon disappear
I can show you beauty,
if you follow longer than fear allows
The smaller lights cast a greater glow

It was Andrew that noticed first, of course. He paused in his actions of hanging some streamers on the wall, sniffing the air. A burning smell pervaded the building and was soon noticeable to all the members. Iggy did a quick headcount to figure out who the missing member was, although Andrew had already figured it out from past experiences and was out of the door, following his nose. The other singers took off after Andrew.
The first thing you would notice about the room was that it was on fire. Andrew didn't really care for it, diving onto the floors and creeping right in. Iggy's worried cr

The captain stepped out of the bislug-drawn carriage and squinted in the early evening light. It always took him a few hours to get used to sunlight after months in space. Paying the driver, picking up his one suitcase and slinging his captain's uniform over his left shoulder, he looked up at the two-story country house. It was situated in the middle-class district on the crescent of the Haniput Space Port, where the Interstellar Academy was located. Though he knew more people on other planets, he and his wife had decided not to move far after getting married. He grinned and his heart skipped a beat at the thought of his wife.
Young and reckless, their relationship had had a rocky start to say the least, but they had sacrificed much for each other, and he had grown to love her more than his own life. Every day of his deployment out among the stars, he could only wonder if she were looking at those same stars, if she was as lonely, t

How I detest Mondays. Of course this dislike is deliciously cliché, but I feel entirely justified in my frustration. This particular Monday was presenting itself as one of the worst in quite some time: indeed, I had only been observing rehearsal for an hour and already my head was throbbing.
The usual was taking place, only exaggerated to such an extent that had I been in good health, I would have been doubled over with laughter. Signora Guidicelli was persistently griping about God knows what at the top of her operatic lungs, blurring her French and Italian into one indistinguishable mess. Something akin to pity rose up when I surveyed the poor conductor: he looked utterly exhausted and had long ago abandoned arguing with the diva, instead electing to take a well-deserved nap in the orchestra pit.

Goth rarely dreamt. Most of the time his sleep was plunged in thick darkness, giving no space for imagination.
But this time a scenery appeared before his eyes. It was nighttime, the sky filled with strange glistening stars. The longer he looked at it, the more he realized the sky was nothing more but the ceiling of a cavern, a really huge one. The air was cold, the trees fake, without any life.
Where was he?
”Goth…,” growled a low and hushed voice.
The prince was on alert, his ears twisting as he looked around him. Everything shifted, the trees falling in a strange earthquake, forcing the Vampyrum to take flight, slightly scared. The ground shattered, a form suddenly emerging from the very depth of hell. The newcomer was immense, almost as big as the pyramid back in the jungle. The creature’s face was long, its jaw wide and filled with sharp fangs. Its eyes were glowing with intensity, glaring at the Vampyrum, as if trying
