The Gypsy Bard LyricsWhen you're rife with devastationThe Gypsy Bard Lyrics3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
There's a simple explanation:
You're a toymaker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball
And whichever way he tilts it
Know that we must be resilient
We won't let them break our spirits
As we sing this silly song
When I was a little filly, a galloping blaze overtook my city
So they shipped me off to the orphanage. Said, "ditch those roots if you wanna fit in"
So I dug one thousand holes and cut a rug with orphan foals
Memories are blurred, and their faces are obscured, but I still, know the words to this song
When you've bungled all your bangles
And your loved ones have been mangled
Listen to the jingle jangle
Of my gypsy tambourine
'Cause these chords are hypnotizing
And the whole world's harmonizing
So please children stop your crying
And just sing along with me

The day started warm and bright that morning with a good promise of the coming spring and summer; perfect weather for Easter, in Danny's opinion. It was also the first Easter since gaining his ghost powers that he'd actually been able to sleep in. No evil ghost attacked him, the town or the world like they had for the past two years on this day, and as such, Danny had started to really enjoy his Easter Sunday.
Then one of his best friends, Tucker, showed up to drag Danny to the local park for some Easter Egg hunt. Apparently the prize for collecting the most eggs was some new tech he babbled off so fast that Danny couldn't catch it. Not that he cared to.
Somehow the African American boy managed to drag his not-so-willing friend down to the park. Surprisingly, they found several other teenagers there too, much to the displeasure of most of the younger children. Danny felt kind of bad for them having to compete with people like Tucker and Mikey. He d
Falling Moon - Part 1/3 Everfree is unusually quiet tonight, Color Wheel said to herself as she trotted through the dark streets. There's usually somepony having a late-night get-together, but it looks like everypony's asleep. The purple earth pony wasn't sure how she felt about that. On the one hoof, everypony had worked hard today to help buck the last of the apples in time for tomorrow's Running of the Leaves, and they were still behind on the harvest. This change of seasons was one of the toughest Everfree had ever faced, and everypony would need a good night's sleep if they were going to pull it off.Falling Moon - Part 1/33 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
On the other hoof, there was Princess Luna.
Color Wheel saw the dark blue alicorn standing in the square, her horn enveloped in a blue aura of magic. A warm, gentle breeze began blowing through Color Wheel's short blue and white mane. Crickets chirped all around, and when she looked up, she was treated wit

"Lin? Sis you alright?" I was disturbed from someone shaking my shoulders, I opened my eyes in shock and saw Caitlyn kneeling down in front of me in panic slightly. My eyes just softened at her and looked around to where I was, still unable to move.
"Caitlyn, I'm fine. Just sorting things out." I stood up slowly, shaking still from slamming and paralyzing myself. "Damnit Lin, don't do that to me! I hate it when you pass out randomly like that." I just looked at her stupidly,
"Caitlyn, I didn't-"
"Why did you run off like that?"
"Because they we're-"

"The spirits of the Elements of Harmony are right here!"
Applejack wasn't sure what Twilight was talking about, but she knew the unicorn needed her help, and as she took her place beside her newest friend, she knew she wasn't going to back down now. The little piles of stone at Nightmare Moon's hooves began to glow with a mysterious light, much to the dark mare's bewilderment. "Applejack, who reassured me when I was in doubt, represents the spirit of Honesty!" Twilight continued. Several stones began circling the orange earth pony, glowing with a strange orange light.
Twilight continued to highlight each pony's strengths, from Fluttershy's kindness to Rainbow Dash's loyalty. Another orb appeared in the air above her and transformed into a magnificent crown. Together, the six ponies unleashed the magic of the Elements of Harmony, stripping Nightmare Moon of her dark powers once and for all.
The effort took a lot out of them, but it didn't take them long to recover. "Gee, Twilight,"

Second Lieutenant Hawkeye, I want you to put that thing back this instant! That monster could be dangerous...
What monster, sir?
The cloth was pulled back, and there he saw it: a little boy with golden hair and eyes, crying out loud in her arms. The lieutenant colonel then put the torch up and examined the boy from head to toe. Perfect. His body parts are perfect. A perfect ordinary boy like this cant be born out of alchemy. He thought that he was just an ordinary lost boy or a child abuse victim until he saw a tattoo that looks more like a runic circle on his little skinny back. He then stepped into the dark room and with the help of the torch, he could see clearer. As his eyes were fitting in with the light, he saw traces of blood on the floor. The further he went through the room, the clearer the mystery is getting.

Soft cloth caressing her frame
Eyes twinkling like gold
Who knew she'd be the one to blame
Squelched into the contrived space
The wheels begin to churn
And all along, her euphoric eyes
Swelled and began to burn
As her sobs join the chorus of others
Her mind is fairytales away
Dreaming of the butterfly
She hopes will come her way
Her abstruse thoughts are broken
By the screeching of hinges
They are wrenched from their surroundings
And everybody cringes
The aroma of demise
Soon fills the young girls night
"Men and women to the left,
Children and elderly to the right"
Along this morbid path
A mirage of pink, purple, and blue becomes a blur
She outstretches her delicate hand
So the butterfly can land on her
On the tip of her finger
This little girl can now see
All her hopes and dreams
Everything she hoped to be
A loud bang is produced
And the butterfly's tears are shed
For the young girl that once loved him
Now lays there dead.

A cold hand still leaning on the closed door,
The echo of a painful shout still overcome,
Imprinted in the empty sight,
The image of a purpose that was too soon gone.
Tangled bloody hair,
Of a person that decided no more can bear,
Tears like crystals still resting on the dead face,
The soundtrack of a film,
The scream of lost innocence,
On a black and white screen.
Suppressed words that cleaved a heart,
Broken promises and lies,
One more soul tore apart,
A person drown in useless cries,
Bloody, bruised wrist,
The result of the decision - no more can go on like this.
A peaceful grin,
Of a person that in the ocean of despair couldn't anymore swim,
Is frozen and distorted,
A blade, a stain of blood,
Life away has faded.
Like in a dream,
I see the bruised, dead face,
I hear a scream,
On the floor I see a bloody trace,
Snippets of a jumble film.
Another person broke down,
Took away by the whirling waves of the suicide dream,
Another person decided this world is m

Eighty percent of the time when I had dreams they were horrific and made me wish I could hide from my own slaughterhouse of a mind. But tonight it was something of a nightmare and something prolific.

His arms were wrapped around his chest by a straight jacket and his neck was bound by a leather strap to the wall behind him. His mouth was covered with one of the muzzles I'd grown used to at the 'research facility'. His eyes held a menacing quality that I used to see in the mirror. His hair was wild as a rabid dog's, stubble peppering what could be seen of his chin. The pants he wore were light blue and white striped, the

The scent was was unmistakable. It provided an invisible trail that she could follow easily with her keen olfactory senses. The predatory instincts within spurred the feral creature on, faster towards her hapless prey. Indeed, instincts were the key, for there was no malice in her actions. It was simply the order of things: predator and prey. Cruel, but necessary.
Sensing that she was close to her quarry, she paused, training her keen ears to the surrounding forest, trying to judge the distance to the fleeing deer she had been tracking. Straining to hear her prey over the other sounds of the woodland night, she detected the sound of something racing through the underbrush, not more than 20 yards dist

Mary Sue - Gary Stu TestLet's get one thing very clear: there is no score that will automatically 'make' a character a Mary Sue/Gary Stu, a high score only indicates that there might be a problem with a character. This test is for people who are worried that their characters might be Mary Sues/Gary Stus; the intention is to help people to improve their characters, NOT to make people feel bad about them. So if you like your character, that's the important thing.

They had been torn, banged, and dirtied
And the scent of a farm came with them too;
The smelly sweat and animals followed me around like I was their leader
I'd only wear them at the barn
A clop clop clop came from underneath them with every step I'd take
And a small trail of mud grew as I walked
From riding horses to cleaning stalls,
I have never washed them
Every particle of dust and dirt had a meaning,
All the things I've don't in these have been caked onto them for me to recall
My boots were my scrapbook
After thinking to myself for some time, I went to the door and pulled them in,
Gripping the dirty leather in between my fingers
Rubbing it into my palms and the memories were coming in,
And I remembered the good days

Stretching out powerful strides

They have gone.
Left me alone.
They were horses, horses

The Secret Trio, chp. 2It had been two days since the alchemist had laid out his plans, and the imps had immediately become a nuisance for Norrisville, Amity Park, and surrounding cities. More and more places were getting hit; cars and valuables ransacked and destroyed, damages to buildings increasing. Whenever the creatures had been fought off, they disappeared into thin air without so much as a trace or a hint.The Secret Trio, chp. 22 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
They then came back the next day. Worse yet, no one knew where they were coming from and why they were attacking at all, and Norrisville and Amity Park were among the most attacked. The heroes of each respective place were frustrated; at least once a day they'd be attacked by them, fight them off, and then they'd disappear. Couldn't do a thing about it.
In Norrisville, Randy Cunningham and Howard Weinerman crowded in Randy's room as the Ninja lamented the situation. "I don't get it, Howard," he groused, tugging at his hair with an eye twitching, "they're not robots or stanked kids. What do I do? I c
