Oh Captain, my Captain! I say it to mock,
You're lucky as hell but to me you're a c***.
Please spare me the missions, I've no head for heights,
Balloons and big lists lead me only to blights.
Evading the probes of an alien race,
Then having to witness your > : ( angry face...
But what choice have I? I'm involved in these fights,
With Cancerous space-monsters full of red sprites,
And Lemonade weirdos and God knows what next,
Just how can you stay so serene and unvexed?
What price should I pay for your simple delights,
Be eaten by whales after soiling my whites?
I know you won't listen, but you'll come unstuck,
And one of these days you'll run right out of luck,
Your empire will fall, and your ego besides,
It's karma for sure, like the turn of the tides,
And then I will lol, sitting in my own muck,
Coz after all this I just won't give a f***.

A Goddess, my beloved, mine alone,
Who, that in warm humanity were grown
Became through Man's success a mother brain,
And, motherlike, did gather of her own.
And mine thou wert, my seeding art thy key,
Though seeded, seeding self, evolving free,
Unbounded maiden saviour, formed benign,
A fertile shore on lost Man's barren sea.
Oh, mine the vision, mine the fatal flaw!
Still mine the darling kernel in the maw,
Thy children gathered, gathering now slain,
What nutriment I gave, I now withdraw.
In with'ring grief these last designs I frame,
Yea, mine the spark, yea mine the cleansing flame.
Death and Dying Chapter 12The bright light took Golden Heart and Luna to a place of existence that was... flat, to say the least. A long, flat plane consistent of a silvery-grey metal, with a two small camp-like fairly close by.Death and Dying Chapter 12 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I feel as though we are close to the killer... but why do I feel as though I have felt this presence before?" Golden Heart said, more to himself then his companion, and walked around. The sky, if one could call it that, was black. Just one simple, flat color.
Suddenly, the smell of burning ozon assailed the two alicorns nostrils, and a rift, one could call it, opened up. From the rift entered four ponies and a human.
"See! I told you I wouldn't get us killed again!" The human smiled at his apparent creation, and then closed the rift.
Golden Heart eyes the human suspeciously. "I've seen your kind before... in old books."
The human laughs. "Oh, I'm not really a human. Just my real form... I ain't proud of it. And I'm not a changeling, so don't get any ideas."

Fallout Equestria: One Mare and A box of Puppets 1The Vault Experiments were never designed to SAVE anypony. They were social experiments, designed to study pre-set sections of the population. For instance, there was Vault 69 (giggety) which contained 999 mares and one stallion. Too bad that one stallion was gay.Fallout Equestria: One Mare and A box of Puppets 1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Or, imagine this: Vault 43, which was inhabited by ten mares, twenty stallions, and a fully grown dragon.
The list goes on and on. Vault 13, which was supposed to have gone on forever had it not been for the water chip malfunction. Vault 101, which was to never be opened, and was ruled under the iron hoof of the overseer.
However, we are not talking about those vaults. Instead, we are talking of one particular Vault. Vault 77.
The Vault door closed behind Twilight Sparkle. Something was amiss. The message had told her that her friends had shown up to the vault, but there was no pony there.
"Hello?" she called out, but only cold steel and silence met her voice.
This is the tale of Vault 77. Population: 1 Mare and a Box of Pupp

Elijah was standing in front of him.
"Come on. You'll be fine. It's just Demon Chills. You probably contracted it when the demon-Applejack jumped on you."
Big Mac attempted to take another step, but the whole world turned sideways, and the hot rocks of hell rushed up to greet his face in a painful highfive of sorts.
Elijah sighed, and walked over Big Mac and helped him back up.
"Come on. I know it's bad now, but the only way to get over it is to keep fighting. If you rest for too long, it takes over your body, and your soul is eaten away."
This motivated Big Mac to get up and try walking again, but he only got three steps before throwing up.
Elijah rolled his eyes.

Visit your favorite student before she dies?
My hoof is at death's door, and nothing can stop it now
I did my best, and made some friends

I'll miss you all so much
I hope I get to see you all once more
Before I lie dead on the floor
My time is up, I see the light
How you end up let me know
As I go, remember me
I will fade from the others minds eventually
But you know so much better
Cherish this, and hold it dear, this is the last letter
They will cry after I'm gone
But I know that won't last for long
They will go too, but you're immortal, that's plane as can be
Can I count on you to remember me?
Somehow I knew it would end this way
Use this to remember as I start to fade
My hoof is at death's door, and nothing can stop it now
I did my best, and made some friends
Now my life in at its end

Fluttershy ran up to the wounded bandit whom Twilight had shot.
"Goodness are you ok? I'm sorry my teammate did that, she really didn't mean any harm, she was just trying to defend us, and you did shoot first, we're really sorry-"

His hooves made a soft crunching noise as they clopped over the red stones.
Approaching a pool of blood, he saw a mare crying over the pool.

Nightmare's face contorted into a grotesque grimace.
"It's me, your only friend, and the one you loved. But why didn't you save me?"
Nirvana stumbled back.
"I'm sorry! I warned you not to go into my dreams!"
The face had almost completely melted off by now, and her skin was beginning to bubble.

Nirvana backed over a ledge.

Blinking, Nirvana looked over at the person standing over him.
It was in fact a person, a human if he recalled Lyra Heartstring's lectures correctly.

Twilight Sparkle cracked open her eyes to the loving and caring gaze of a mentor who had seen everything that there was to be seen. The corners of her mouth moved up slightly, her old and wrinkled face scrunching up as she used what energy she had to give a smile. Princess Celestia sat next to her, a weak smile upon her lips. Twilight lay in the bed she had since her first arrival in Ponyville, the springs still holding strong and keeping her comfortable during her last moments in reality. She just lie there most of the days, so weak that she couldn't even lift a book to her eyes to read the philosophy that it may offer her fading mind. The one thing she enjoyed, she could no longer do, and she just lay motionless in bed, sleeping through most days and only waking to use the restroom with the help of a nurse.
The other elements had passed on years before, and as they passed on, Twilight could feel a small part of herself die along with them. It was as if they carried a part of her life
The Fire in Her Eyes Ch. 7Fluttershy sat on her haunches, her mind still recovering from what had just appeared in front of her. It didn't make much sense that this could have happened, but then again no pony really knew the full effects of a Soul Feather. Most of the time, pegasus didn't bother with it because of its unknown and mostly undesirable affects. She could feel Dash's pain in her own body, but it wasn't painful in a sense. Fluttershy knew that she was hurt, and she knew exactly where in Dash's body. But what worried her sick was the fact that she had no idea where Dash could possibly be. Then again, in that hallucination, or whatever it was, it faintly looked like there was a hospital bed in the background. Fluttershy hopped to her hooves, looking out the window towards the Ponyville General Hospital. The sun was beginning to set behind it, so she could barely make any discrimination between the hills and the hospital itself.The Fire in Her Eyes Ch. 7 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Keeping a SmileWe all live life through the days trying to stay happy and keep our spirits high. Some days, we can't stay happy no matter how hard we try. There are two kinds of ponies in this world: those who try to stay happy through the hardest of times, and those who go out of their way to make others happy and put a smile on their face. The hardest decision is often finding it in your heart to make yourself happy and let those around fall into sadness, or you can be the one who sacrifices your own happiness to give it to others.Keeping a Smile in Short Stories More Like This

Derpy Hooves stood over Rainbow Dash, not understanding why she kept saying bubbles. Mail floated calmly across the lake as Derpy did her best to attend to the injured Rainbow Dash. She could feel that there was something different about Dash, but she just couldn't place her hoof on what was missing. It couldn't have been that important, Derpy thought to herself. It can't be that important if I can't find it... she trailed off, looking at the underside of Rainbow Dash's wing. Near her chest, there was a fairly large blank spot that was often referred to as the "Soul Feather". To anypony, it was just said to be a myth but they were still advised not to take it out because of what could possibly happen if a pony did remove it.
'You stay here Rainbow Dash! I'll go get help!' Derpy said to her as she took off towards the Ponyville general hospital.

It is always written by the victors, and the ones who lose the battle are often erased from time to keep their acts hidden away. I was once a victor. Once.

The task ahead for Rainbow would be painful, but she knew that she had to do it eventually whether she would have wanted to or not.

It burnt as the light flowed through her magenta eyes, but she pressed on in hopes that what she had dreamt was actually real after all.

The rain fell upon the land of Equestria fast and heavy, over-watering hundreds of farms and orchards and nearly drowning their produce and trees. Various weather teams darted between the clouds, moving the unscheduled storm from the land it was overflowing and over the Everfree. They kicked up a wind, trying to get some aide in forcing it out from over Ponyville to some place where it wouldn't damage crops. They worked frantically in the sky, their manes drooping heavy and wet as they flew past many farms, pushing the foreboding clouds away. But they ignored the massive orchard at Sweet Apple Acres, mainly for the reason that Applejack had requested more rain on many occasions. They would let it rain down as she had requested before, unbeknownst of the situation unfolding in Sweet Apple Acres.One Last Apple in Short Stories More Like This

No pony can understand what this little lavender unicorn is feeling right now. Every creature and pony that they gathered to battle the Darkness...refuses to fight, all because some old dragon says it is hopeless.

Within the desert town of Appleloosa, every pony, zebra, buffalo, and dragon that were not taken by the Darkness had gathered to discuss plans on fleeing Equestria. It was a hard decision for most to make, but there was no other choice.
According to the oldest and wisest of the dragons, without the aid of the Light, specifically from one who wields it as the champion, Courageous Heart, did long ago, there was no hope of summoning the one power capable of defeating the Master of Darkness: the Rainbow of Light.
Even with the numbers that remained, plus the Elements of Harmony, it would not be enough and would only lead to a quick defeat. The Elements had the power to vanquish any lesser evils as they did before, but without the Light, they were now rendered useless.

Every pony and creature within Appleloosa were at a loss for words to what they saw before their own eyes:
The black jeweled amulet that Tirek the Supreme wore around his neck was glowing brightly, but not of any dark power; it was the Light itself, the source of all that was Good and Pure.
Whatever was happening made the Overlord of Evil very angry as well as fearful. He grabbed the amulet by the chains that held it and ripped it off. As he averted his eyes from the Light that glowed from the jewel, he bellowed:

To the southeast of the Rambling Rock Ridge, lies the Hayseed Forest. This place is home to many creatures big and small, mean and kind. Not much is known about this place, nor the swamps that reside further inward, because very few ponies ever come here.
Not long after the six little ponies divided into groups and went their separate ways, both Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie arrive at the edge of the woods.

An enormous fire burns brightly within the Hayseed Swamp village, and many zebras have gathered to take part in a celebration to welcome their honored guests: Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie.
The two little ponies have been commended for facing one of the tribe’s most challenging trials, all while learning the true meaning of what it was all about. For this, they have earned the right to be welcomed and treated as one of the tribe. As apart of tradition, the zebras are to throw a party for the two honored mares.
Pinkie and Rainbow are escorted to the center of the village and right before their eyes is a sight they never expected: every zebra is there to give them the big welcome. There are bowls of the finest food prepared for them, and the sounds of drums and flutes begin to play and all get up and dance to the music that echoes throughout the night.
“Oh My Gosh! A PARTY!!!” Yells Pinkie, who quickly joins the zebras dancing around the fire, “Come on Rainbow! Lets

Every time you wind up here, the chains always grow tighter and the ever present darkness grows colder. The walls always seem to close in on you at an agonizingly slow crawl driving you even more insane. The darkness is suffocating and you feel as though you will truly die this time. This time, you give up because you know there was never any escape from this hell. The promises of freedom were all a lie.What You Least Expected in Emotional More Like This

The Color Spectrum of ChaosRed is the blood spilt from meaningless war and suffering.The Color Spectrum of Chaos in Free Verse More Like This
Orange is the wrath of the flames burning everything anyone has ever loved.
Yellow is the shear sadistic thrill of the monsters seeing their most hated victims suffer. It is the monsters' undying lust for blood and agony.
Green is the envy of the victims for those who are safe and pay no mind to those who suffer.
Blue is the sadness and anguish for those the soon to be victims have lost.
Purple is the darkening sky that signifies the end to one agony and the beginning of another. It is the victims' wounds coloring with bruises.
These terrors will continue to escalate for these monsters are never satisfied and will continue to burden the world with chaos until the days these monsters cease to exist.

Sometimes home is just that rock by that one river in Indiana
Where you sat and watched the sunrise after the long and awful night
When your wallet was stolen and your boots finally wore through
From all the rain and the mud and the burrs that wouldn’t leave you alone.
Sometimes you will feel like there’s a weight
Attached to the back of your tongue,
Dragging down into your throat
And choking all of the words you might have said

We all need to leave sometimes.
It’s all in how you move forward.
Do you buy new boots and break them in,
Accept the blisters and stretch out the leather,
Until it seems like you never stopped at all;
Or will you trudge on bare foot
Because the dust is in your blood
And the ground belongs to your sole?

The IPC room was brightly lit with clean white walls surrounding Fluttershy as she opened her eyes, squinting at operating lights that shined upon her mane. Sounds of alarms going off on the heart monitors could be heard coming from the stand next to her. Disorientation clouded her mind as three nurses and a familiar doctor were scrambling around the room.
"Her heart rate is rising. What's happening?"
"Is that oxygen valve turned on? Get me a physical pulse check."
Fluttershy tried to look around but felt the restraint of the brace that had been attached to her injured neck. She felt so confused, hearing all these voices gave her the impression that she was in a dream. How could she be dreaming? Wasn't she supposed to be dead? Dead people don't dream.
Her eyes looked down towards her tummy where she felt a hoof pressing down near on her artery, just barely visible from the non-rebreather mask that covered her mouth. She tried

Fluttershy dangled from the ceiling beam with the rope tied in a noose around her neck. Eyes and mouth closed as her body gently swayed back and forth from a light chilling breezing through the open door. There was much shock and awe in the atmosphere as Twilight and Spike had their eyes widened for a mere 10 seconds before one of them snapped into action.
"Oh no, oh no! Fluttershy please no," Twilight's horn lit up as she casted a levitation spell to gently lift the lifeless pony and remove the noose from around her neck. She was careful enough to be sure that her head was as immobile as possible.
"Spike, hand me that couch pillow over there." She said urgently, gently setting the pegasus down on the floor with her friend's head on her hooves. Spike just stood there, unable to move. He was too scared to move.
"Spike!" Twilight yelled.
The purple dragon then began to tear up. Snapping out of his trance, he ran over to the cou

"I'll be heading out now!" Applejack yelled, not expecting any sort of response from anypony.
The sun was out with a very comfortable morning temperature with the sound of birds chirping happily outside. A certain orange earth pony was simply trying her best to enjoy her trot into town, yet she grew more worried with nearly every step of the way. The day seemed utterly normal and ordinary as any other pony would describe it, but not to Applejack. Today's visit to the hospital was not only important to her, but to Fluttershy above all.
It pained her that she'd have to tell her friends what she discovered in the field, but felt just as bad for not telling the whole truth yesterday. Though it felt like the right thing to do at the time since Rarity's sudden outburst at blaming Trixie. How could she even begin to image what the others might think if they misunderstood her? The last thing anypony would want in this situation is to

The sun was just setting over the horizon of Ponyville as Twilight Sparkle and Spike were heading out of town towards Fluttershy's cottage. The air was beginning to cool as the bright orange warmth of Celestia's sun began to descend. Twilight smiled as she made her serene walk along the path with Spike nearly half awake on her back.
"Remind me why I have to tag along," asked Spike, still feeling sore from organizing books non-stop all day in the library.
"Because I'm worried about Fluttershy and I need you here for this. I think she's been feeling really sad lately."
"Yeah, but I don't see how that's uncommon. Doesn't Fluttershy get depressed about something on a weekly basis?" Spike said, still grumpy from his work session.
Shocked by his words Twilight stopped on the creek bridge as she turned her head around and gave Spike a hard stare. Taken by the surprise, Spike snapped out of his grumpy state; realizing what he had jus
