A whispered exclamation of surprise
From my lab partner all semester.
“You look really pretty without your glasses.”
The words fall from his lips
And hit me between my eyes.
I do not see them coming
Anymore than I do the computer screen
Until I put my glasses on and blink.
The words rattle in my head
they ring in my ears
and sit in the annoying scratch on my left lens
as I stare at my spectacled reflection.
I hear only insults,
Gasps as something is just discovered,
As if my beauty is enhanced by blinding myself.
I do not look that different,
I do not become unrecognizable when I put them on,
Or take them off,
As if they are some superhero mask.
How is it though, that this supposed compliment,
Is always said with an exclamation of surprise
And new found knowledge,
Like I am not pretty with them on?

You're that girl I always see
Through the corner of my eyes
The one I want to be
Now you're lost
Locked in the back of my mind
Where are you?
Please come out
I found the key to my memory
I know you
Because you cared
Why can't I find you?
You were here
I saw you here not long ago
Can't ever win this game I play
Memories fading away
But I don't ever want to forget
That light that you had
The smile that you gave me
Within my endless thoughts,
Regrets and emotions
Take a break
It all back into the night
As I lay down under
This starry sky

The sun was just beginning to rise as the six ponies and the dragon stepped into the home of the royal sisters. As the sun was rising, the guests were not surprised to find that only Princess Luna was there to greet them.
She didn't speak, but rather chose to lead them into the hall which was decorated with stained glass windows depicting acts of heroism not only by the six mortal ponies, but also by the two princesses.
They were not alone. Standing in front of the newest addition to the hall-the image of Discord's second imprisoning- was a light blue unicorn using magic to clean the glass. The unicorn wore a cloak and hood, obscuring their face and cutie mark. They seemed to not realize that any-pony had entered the hall.
"Ocean Breeze" Luna called to the unicorn pony, who turned to face her.
The mare shook her head to lower her hood, revealing a pair of crystal blue eyes and an ocean blue curly mane.
The mare, named Ocean Breeze, lifted her head to lo

-Pie Family Farm-
Pinkie's eyes darted around the room, scanning for something sweet to eat. The only things on the table were bread and salad.
'Mom must've hidden the deserts' Pinkie thought, frowning as her stomach rumbled.
Baby was hungry. Very hungry.
They must have been eating a lot, since Dr. Phantom had said that Baby was as big as an unborn foal would be at five months, not four like it actually was.
The others had gotten worried when Dr. Phantom told them the same thing about their babies, but Pinkie didn't.
Dr. Phantom didn't say it was anything to worry about, so she didn't worry. Why worry when you don't have any reason to?
She was vaguely aware of some-pony saying her name, but didn't respond until she heard some-pony call out, "Pinkamena!"
The pink pony looked around for a moment, searching for the source of the noise. Finally, she found it.
"Oh, hey Inky. When'd you get here?" she asked her sister.
Octavia sighed; no matter how many times she'd try to get P

The streets of Ponyville were unusually busy today. It was late afternoon, yet all the shops were still open and the sky was perfectly clear.
To anyone who lived in Ponyville, it was clear that something important was going to happen today.
And, for what was probably the first time, Twilight Sparkle and her friends were completely unaware of what was happening.
"What's going on?" Twilight asked the five other mares and Spike.
None of them seemed to have an answer.
"The last time I saw every-pony this worked up was when Princess Celestia came for a visit" Rarity commented.
Twilight nodded in agreement. Suddenly, her eyes grew wide in a mixture of what appeared to be realization and absolute terror.
Her dragon assistant walked up to her side, asking her why she was so distressed. He gave a glance at her stomach, as though he believed her unborn foal was to blame for her pain.
The unicorn sighed.
"She doesn't know. I haven't told her yet" Twilight explained to he

-Sugar Cube Corner-
"Pinkie Pie? Are you feeling alright?" questioned the cinnamon-colored mare who had a cutie mark shaped like a cookie that had a bite taken out of it.
Pinkie looked over to the other female pony and smiled, nodding her head.
"Of course I'm alright, Ginger Snap. Why do you ask?" she asked with a grin, her speech slightly garbled due to something being in her mouth.
Ginger Snap's only answer was to look at the three-foot-long strand of strawberry licorice hanging from the pink pony's mouth. Her gaze then wandered to Pinkie's stomach, which was bulging slightly.
Pinkie noticed where Ginger Snap was looking and giggled slightly.
"Yeah, I know. Guess all those goodies I've been eating these past six weeks didn't like being eaten. They're making me fat". Her tone suddenly changed as she shouted, "Oh, those manure-heads, I'm gonna kill them!"
Brown eyes widened as Ginger Snap slowly backed away from the suddenly angry Pinkie Pie.

Three days later, the residents of Ponyville found themselves on a train bound for home. They were now accompanied by their six children, a baby amphibious dragon that Meadow insisted was named Fin, and the ponies who would be charged with monitoring the foals, as well as their families.
For the most part, they were all strangers, with a couple exceptions. They all knew Ocean Breeze and Crystal Lake; Libby and Meadow both knew the little half-zebra colt named Token Medal, who they quickly introduced to the others.
However, they all had to be introduced to Ocean Breeze's husband, Tsunami, a dark blue unicorn pony with a mane and eyes the color of storm-clouds, as well as Token's parents, who were actually his aunt and uncle.
His uncle, Bronze Medal, was a pegasus pony who was almost identical to his nephew in everyway, except for the fact that Bronze had eyes the color of copper instead of silver like Token's, and the fact that Token had stripes.

"I told you we should have just gone to the doctors" Rainbow Dash told Twilight as the seven of them (the six ponies, plus Spike) walked through town. They were heading to said doctors, actually.
"Well, you can't really blame her for coming to that conclusion. She doesn't know us that well and our symptoms do match those of pregnancy" the purple unicorn said, hesitating before saying the last word.
It seemed her hesitation was needed, as the moment she said that word, everyone became oddly quiet.
It was a truth that none of them could deny, but no-pony wanted to admit it.
Based solely on the symptoms, the mares could easily believe that they could be pregnant. But, that was impossible. None of them had been with any stallions, ever.
So, there had to be something else wrong with them-some illness that just happened to have the same symptoms as pregnancy.
Though, if they did have some rare illness, they would have a lot more problems to deal w

Fear looms o’er star lit skies
But will the moon light ever rise?
Let destroyers of courage reign?
And let dark fire take for gain?
But unsilenced freedom is not lost
For unshaken light has pierced the deep forest
One rises from dragons nest
Bearing mark of evil upon his chest
But low, the dead emblem glows
Moon’s silver light and sunbeam gold
Hardened by hell yet blessed by the light
A legend rises in the untamed night
From flying gleams of iron bars
Blessed light of moon lit shards
To shining blade of crescent shape
Destroyed the hope of demons sate
And when arise the shadows screams
The Hunter fulfills the darkest of darkness' dreams

with hammers and nails and wood
To keep them all safe,
dividing their lines,
all day and all night, there I stood.
They called me a wall
and pounded my sides,
berating and cursing my name
They peered through my peepholes
and tried to get past
though both of my sides were the same.
They called me a barrier
and used me for war,
drawing weapons, they climbed o'er my wall
The other side snarled
and did just the same,
so both, in their anguish, did fall
They now call me nothing
for both sides are dead,
I stand over rubble and bone
I silently watched
as each side fell apart
Here I stand, as a fence, all alone.

Neither have I.

The memories with you will be etched in my brain.
I promise I won't forget.

Shining ever so brightly.
I felt ever so bitter. Why shine now?
When you've just taken him away.
Why take him away?

Crying like I did when I saw you.
Seeing the horrible mistake it was,
Yet knowing it was time.
So just cry, let it out like I did.
Crying is okay sometimes.

But to him it wasn't that much of a bother.
He found a stone when in the Spine,
Little did he know that it was a great sign.
But the king got wind of what had become,
And Eragon knew he couldn't succumb.
The egg soon hatched, and a dragon was born,
He told not his family, for they would have sworn.
The Ra'zac soon came, in search of the pair,
But to their dismay, the two were not there.
Angered, the Ra'zac reeked hell on his house,
While Eragon hid with his friend, like a mouse.
He dug for his uncle, and Saphira helped too,
But, they discovered, there was nothing to do.
With Saphira the dragon, he and Brom fled,
While deep in his heart, the boy mourned for the dead.
The bard taught Eragon things he shouldn't have known,
If he had been just a storyteller alone.
Brom, he determined, was not as he thought,
But friendships like that, he couldn't have bought.
They bought horses and raced of to find a safe town,
