Actually, I preferred their company over that of a real person,
probably because the only way I could interact with them was in my mind
And there, they already knew me, from my strengths to my faults, and accepted me
There was no uncertainty, no rejection, no hesitation
They were always the ones to seek me out, smiling as they asked me for my input
My strong fear of rejection held me back from entering reality
I went to every extent to keep reality at bay,
so that I could spend every other minute and nanosecond in my perfect fantasy
It was my strongest addiction; I was a full scale escapist
But there's only so much sweetness and indulgence fantasy can provide
When I turned thirteen, I started tentatively wandering into reality
My ventures showed me a world I never would have expected
Two people that I still respect and admire to this day grabbed my wrists
and welcomed me with open arms, patience, and smile
An Open Letter to J.K. RowlingIt's the end of a decade; now the nostalgia and memories begin, or is it even too early for that?An Open Letter to J.K. Rowling in Free Verse More Like This
At one point or another, all of us wanted to find that Hogwarts note in our mail box
Sometimes, when we drifted to sleep at night, it was enticing to think about meeting Harry himself,
wander the giant, capacious halls of the elusive school of wizardry
Maybe, some boring days at school or work, we find ourselves closing our eyes
and hearing "20 points lost for Gryffindor" and staring dismally
into the bright contents of an unknown potion that does God-knows-what because
you know you were half-asleep during the hooked nose Professor Snape's lecture
There's been times where we reach into our pockets for a magic wand that doesn't exist,
when we look at the desk top where our owl should be, but the cage is missing
Somehow, this has seeped into our lives and touched us in such an unimaginable, enchanting way
Harry and his friends may be just fictitious characters in a book series,
yet, in some

Twilight was studying as usual on a beautiful sunny day. She pulled one book after another as her research became more intense.
Spike sat on the steps muttering to himself with his arms folded knowing full well the he was the one that had to put all those books away, Twilight lightly put her book down and tilted her head back and closed her eyes and took a deep breath and smiled she half opened her eyes and looked at spike "whew, I haven't studied like that is some time spike I think I should take a break" she got up on all fours and arched her back and yawned.
She headed up the stairs and looked back at spike as she smiled "could you be a dear spike and put away tease books for me, I'll give you some gems for doing such a good job for me" she said, spike grumbled to himself and thought to himself I knew it.
Twilight looked at herself in the mirror and noticed her mane was quite a mess she brushed it gently and put down the
Explaining the Cake family's geneticsTitle: A dissertation on the hypothetical genetics of the Cake familyExplaining the Cake family's genetics in Academic Essays More Like This
There has been dissension among the ranks of bronies as to whether the Cake parents, who are Earth ponies, could produce a pair of fraternal twins with one being a pegasus and the other a unicorn, given only one distant ancestor carried a single representative phenotype of each on either side.
I have developed a plausible pattern of inheritance to explain this seeming incongruity.
Let's say that pegasi and unicorns were genetically designed, using earth pony as the genetic base, by the alicorns playing god on the mythical continent of Atlantis. The easiest way to add the genes to the earth ponies would be to design an artificial chromosome carrying all the needed genes. Then this chromosome's expression could be triggered by a special transcription factor integrated elsewhere in the genome, likely tied via a promoter to other developmental genes. My bet is the BMP-Bcat-Wnt
Super Milestone Wars 2 part INat and Alex Wolff are performing the song "Illuminated" from their new album "Black Sheep" during a concert in Bryant Park, New York City, when all of a sudden a portal opens from the sky. Suddenly out of the portal emerges an unfathomably large flying ship, commanding the ship is Matt Pinfield and his 2nd-in-command, a recently revived Discord. This flying ship "called the Voidspace Gunship" then fires the main cannon, causing a dark bubble to appear in the distance, engulfing the entire Earth. The Earth then appears in a mysterious dimension called Voidspace with many other alternate Earths that have been sent here by the Voidspace Gunship. Nat, Alex, and the rest of the band then transforms into the Supetastic 6 and teleport into their moon-shaped starship, the "Super Galaxy Dai-Gurren Mk-II", which was back in their home dimension. What is left of Earth is a planet-sized Voidspace bubble. And so the Supetastic 6 head to other unverses to re-form "Supetastic 6 Unlimited".

Pinkie started up her time machine and with another whoosh she was in the future. Strangely, she didn't find herself back home, but outside the same castle. It was almost pitch black out; only the moon and stars provided any light. She could make out the shadowy outline of the castle nearby and approached it.
The castle seemed to be in ruins now, bare earth and the dead, leafless trees surrounding it. Why was it so cold? She rubbed her extremities to try to keep warm as she entered the castle.
"Hello? Anyone?" Pinkie Pie called out into the darkness, but the only sound was the echo of her hooves on the marble floors.
Digging around in her pack she found a bag of jelly beans and began leaving a trail to follow as she walked deeper into the castle. She saw leaves gathered in corners and watched the moon through th

Ariel and Eric were about to have sex. Before her three days were up, Ariel needed to get that kiss. They still had not kissed, but Ariel sent enough messages to make Eric understand her intentions. She did not know that if she had sex within the three days, the spell would turn her into seawater. They both took off each other's clothes and got into bed. The second it started, Eric was surprised to be suddenly drenched in seawater while Ariel was nowhere in sight. He swallowed some of the water and coughed as his pores soaked up the rest. Eric moaned as his feet suddenly cracked and shrank down a few sizes. They arched slightly and became dainty as pale smooth skin covered them. Eric could not move as his legs lost their body hair and muscle, slimming down to match his feet while his thighs thickened until they were crushing his groin. He grunted as his hips burst outwards and his ass filled out sexily. Eric's pain went away as his pubic hair went from black to red and he started to mo

The group had been lost within the Brecillian forest for several days, trying to find a strange herb that could only be found within the deepest depths of the forest. The forest seemed to grow on their armor now.
"Ughh what I would give to have a wonderful bath!" Leliana said as she swiveled her head from side to side trying to fix her hair. Alistair rubbed his hand over his scruffy chin, his beard beginning to annoy him at every twitch of his face.
"There has to be some source of water around here." Wynne said as she looked around, annoyed as well of the filth they had gathered from the wild. Everyone's nerves seemed to be twisted. Cogdale was silent, he had been since leaving the Dalish camp days ago. His Silverlite armor glistened green from the treetops that let what little sunlight escape thr

Within my soul, lies my heart.
A blank canvas, unsure of the painting it wishes to start.
It longs to be released, from the norm that dwells.
It hopes for an artist to paint an image, to re-coat is dulled shell.
There had yet to be one, until you stumbled along.
No reason for arriving, no purpose for moving on.
Of so many canvases, I plead, choose mine.
To test your passionate strokes, and wear your enchanting affections.
Drench my edges with warmth, and fill my center with your sunshine.
Color me with adoration and dry me with respect.
And when you reveal to the world your creation, they shall not awe at its flamboyancy, but at its abstract resemblance of our love.
