Note 1 - This is based of of Mazapan's game "You Have to Burn the Rope."
Note 2 - Any literary pompousness or undue depth to be found within the following text is utterly intentional. Play the game to understand how epic it is.
Note 3 - This is only labeled "fiction" because of several factual embellishments found in the original game; the story is, in essence, true to real life.
You Have to Burn the Rope:
The Artist: Burk
The floor was rough. It stared upward with a burning look, that dark, primordial knowledge that one is being watched, pierced from some unknown angle by impossible eyes. Hewn stone gazed inward from all around. The rigid and dank cloud in the Hero's mind, so much an ironic beast to him, would not rise, would not dissipate; even as his mind drifted in and out of lucidity, he laughed to himself in a fleeting dream of conscious review: my own clouds I have hewn in twain, and yet this one, newly wrought, deigns to pas

A TF2 Night before Christmas
Twas the night before Christmas, with a beautiful sky
No one was scurrying in base, not even Spy.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hope that new weapons would soon be there
The team was nestled all snug in their beds
While Sniper had dreams of blowing of heads
And Scout's mom cleaning everyone's hats
Thinking the first time Scout got his bat
When out on the field arose such a clatter
Soldier sprang from his bed to what's the matter
Outside the window there was a bright flash
That burned down the shutters and singed his new sash
The fire had melted the fresh fallen snow
So Soldier shot a rocket to kill who was below
Just then he saw something in the sky
He knew that it must not be a Spy
But Saxton Hale sky diving through the air!
And Soldier knew he was landing there
He jump rocket quick, back to his bed
To think of the weapons Saxton Hale would put by his head
Saxton Hale landed with a great big boom
Happily giving out new weapons of doom

Tufts of hair fall, touching the

I slip inside to touch

How difficult it is, to definitively love or hate,
when everything is so soft.
From where I sit there are no windows
and except for drooping eyelids I would not believe
in the moon. Or in the swift autumn nights
that come upon us like riders. And the hard
hands begin groping in my belly,
begging to be noticed. I do.

Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"...
Damn kids. They're all alike.
But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?
I am a hacker, enter my world...
Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most of the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me...

They're happy for us to keep it inside,
Our fear is our own; they don't want to know,
Why sould we involve them; why should it show.
You live your whole life in confusion and fear,
The need to feel something unbearably near,
Half of you living, Half of you gone,
And inside you know what your doing is wrong.
The thing's that can help, the thing's that may heal,
Are the flame or the blade and the sting of the steel,
The destruction of skin means the death of your soul,
But there's nowhere to run when your living alone.

Shifty and Lifty had successfully completed their bank heist. They stole about fifty million dollars. They hoisted the bags of loot into the trunk and got into the van. They were snickered happily and began to drive to their hideout.
Lifty: Can you believe this, man?! Fifty million dollars!!!
Shifty: I know!! This is awesome, man!! We're rich!!
They chuckled evilly and high-fived each other. When they arrived at their destination, they grabbed the money and took it inside.
Lifty: Why don't we hit another bank?
Shfty ignored his brother and settled onto the couch. He lay down and pushed his fedora forward so that it would cover his eyes. He immediately fell asleep. Lifty sighed.

They both stared blankly at the bright screen of the TV. Petunia and Handy both went to school together. One day, Mr. Lumpy assigned a group project to his class. He paired up his students randomly, joining them together. After that day, they became good friends, spending most of their time with each other. Feelings between each other formed and after a year of a trusting friendship, they became a couple.

Flaky sat pleasantly under the shade of a tree, watching the small ducklings follow their mother. She was only afraid of ducks if they were close because she was afraid they would bite her, but from a distance she thought they were adorable.
She suddenly heard the voices and laughter of Giggles and Petunia coming closer to her. She jumped from not expecting someone else to be here too. Usually she was alone.
Giggles noticed Flaky under the tree and greeted her. "Hi Flaky!" She said in her usual cheery voice.
"H-hey." Flaky stuttered.
"You know, we barely ever see you out. Why don't you come outside more? You can always come do things with us if you want." Giggles said, making a suggestion.

Shadow blinked in surprise. Taken aback, that silver ever even shouted like that.

Shadow was far off from studying, he wasn't even at school. He was back at the

This chapter takes place where the last one stopped.
Author's note: there are a few things I'd like to say before I start this chapter:
1- When Flippy left the army, he was a sergeant.
2- Mouse Kaboom and Sneaky will sometimes refer to Flippy as "Sir", since I assume he was their superior in the army.
3- They still don't know yet that Evil and Flippy are separated.
4- Mouse Kaboom is deaf due to all the explosions he made in his life, although he can understand what people are saying by reading lips. Also, he is French (and so am I, well French-canadian, but still French), so I'll put in some French lines from him (with translations of course). Since they fought together for a couple of years, Sneaky and Flippy know French (they can't speak it though) thanks to Mouse Kaboom, so they understand him. Lastly, just for the purpose of having fun, I'll make him like a Casanova (Disco Bear style), but a lot nicer and more gentleman-ish.

My legs bent, my spine curled, my hair knotted in front of my eyes excruciating, frightening, but invigorating.

Much to Twilight's chagrin, Dewdrop Dazzle was not gone the next day. Nor the next. Not even the next. The new arrival had divided her time between constantly following Twilight about with a constant barrage of questions; and vanishing off into Ponyville without a word. Despite the peace and quiet, Twilight had found Dewdrop's absences to be even more worrying than when she was hanging about the house.
This was one such moment. Dewdrop had skipped out of the house at the earliest possible moment, not that Twilight had complained. However, the thought of what the strange blue pony could be up to had been gnawing away at Twilight's mind, and so she eventually decided to venture into the town to track down her 'guest'.
The sky was still littered with grey clouds, but patches of blue was breaking through, and the air was fresh and crisp as Twilight wandered through Ponyville. Dewdrop was nowhere to be found. Perhaps she
