"I'm afraid that this is a business call of sorts, Twilight darling," said Rarity, sitting down at Twilight's coffee table as the lavender-coated unicorn poured them both a cup of tea. "I've come to draw upon that limitless knowledge of yours in all things magical."
Twilight blushed and her ears went back in embarrassment. "Oh, I wouldn't call it 'limitless' exactly," she said, letting the teapot float down onto the table-top. "But I hope I can help you."
Rarity smiled back at her. "Oh, thank you darling. It's just a little question that's come up with a dress I've been asked to design for Hoity Toity's autumn range." She levitated her cup to her lips and inhaled its delicious fragrance. "You see, there's been some disagreement regarding the shape of a floral pattern that's going to be embroidered on the hem of this exquisite little cocktail dress that we're working on.

As they approached Sugar Cube Corner, things were strangely quiet in the bakery. It seemed to be closed. Had something happened to Mr and Mrs Cake? Pinkie had felt a little twitchy but it was a kind of twitch she had never felt before. It had started in her tail and travelled up her spine, detoured down her right foreleg then back across her shoulders and down her LEFT foreleg, until finally coming back up to her neck and finishing in her ears, which had gone all floppy. It wasn't a doozy but it WAS something big!
Spike had stubbornly refused to tell her anything as they hurried back.
"No time for explanations, Pinkie Pie!" he had replied to her excited, incessant questions as he bounced up and down on her back. "Besides, it something you've got to see for yourself!"

Her face was flushed and the whole of her body was glistening with sweat, and as soon as she was inside she slammed the door shut with her telekinetic magic and barred it.
"Pr Princess Luna?" I said.
"Wait," said Pinkie Pie, her eyes bugging out. "Esther is Princess LUNA?"
Luna was still trying to catch her breath. "Of course I'm not Esther, Pinkie Pie! But I was hoping that I'd find her here." She looked quickly around the room and then sighed in defeat. "She's not here either, is she?"

She turned to the old silver-maned butler standing beside her and looked at him with mock exasperation. "Apparently it's compulsory that every royal engagement have a formal component to it!"
The butler nodded once, his serene expression unchanged.
Luna turned back and continued. "I'm so sorry that it's taken me so long to formally thank the Elements of Harmony for their courageous efforts on my behalf.

"Please, Angel Bunny - just a teeny, tiny little sip?" Fluttershy brought the spoon closer to the little rabbit's mouth, but he pouted and kicked it away.
The pegasus frowned. "You just have to take your medicine, or else that sniffle is going to get even worse!" She turned and quickly poured another spoonful, but when she looked back, Angel was gone.
Fluttershy looked this way and that, but there was no sign of the little rabbit. "Oh Angel bunny, you're too sick to play hide-and-seek!" she scolded. She looked under the sofa, behind the little coffee table with its vase of moonflowers, but she couldn't see him anywhere!

Her hooves splashed up muddy water as she trotted, soaking her legs, while about her the storm continued to ravage the little town.

Rainbow Dash stood at the end of the cloud-colonnade and looked over the edge, gazing down towards the surface of Equestria far below her. Tears fell steadily from her rose eyes and she watched as each tear spiralled down through the night air until it disappeared.

I don't know how long it's been now. Master Discord sometimes messes with my perception of time. Sometimes it feels like eons, and others -if I didn't have clear memories of LiarJack's little sister growing up and dying of old age (after Scootaloo died as an adult mare defying master) I'd think it all happened yesterday.

#82) How long do you think "Friendship is Magic" will last for? What is a good amount of seasons? Honestly, I want it to go on until at least Season 8.
Answer: Season 8 is a stretch. This is really a two-part question. The first part is about how long I realistically think that the show will last, based on speculation and circumstantial evidence. The second is about how long I personally believe the show should last, which is a different matter altogether.
To engage with the first part, we know that the show at least has in front of it another 13 episodes. After that, more might be made, or the show may maintain its success based on repeats. I can't predict when the show will end exactly, but it's pretty much a given that when Hasbro update the toy-line again, the show will be replaced. It's impossible to talk about "Friendship is Magic" without discussing it directly in parallel to the toys, as they both run off of each other and help to sustain one another. There

#46) What's with the crazy adoration for brony 'celebrities' [people popular within the fandom]? Some of these people are treated as guests at conventions just as much as people working on the show. It pisses me off that the fandom worships certain popular bronies. What do you think of this?
Answer: It's important to remember that brony 'celebrities', as you put it, are just normal people. And, in some respects, yes, certain individuals are seen through rose-tinted glasses. I always find it amusing when fan-musicians, for example, are featured on guest lists for conventions above people such as Daniel Ingram, the guy responsible for most of the songs in the actual show.
Then again, the fandom likes its idols, and there's no point in getting pissed off just because said idols are receiving a great deal of praise. Most of the brony 'celebrities' deserve at least a portion of their fame, and so it seems fair to say that if people are willing to look up to these people
Friendship is Magic: a ReviewNostalgia can be a funny thing it's the sort of emotional impulse that makes a man do crazy things. Things like purchasing the "Sonic Underground" box-set, simply because I enjoyed it as a kid. But there's something inherently disappointing about nostalgia; the realisation that these experiences often remain a part of our childhood for a reason. Watching "Sonic Underground" as a 19-year old is a very different experience to watching it as a youngster on Saturday mornings. The once beloved show now appears to me as a train-wreck of embarrassing musical montages, repetitive pacing and rather dated animation. Getting old is no fun when it brings out the critic within.Friendship is Magic: a Review in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Thankfully, I have re-ignited that joyous spark of infancy after watching "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"; a show that for me is not mired by any form of nostalgic bias.

I would like to consider myself actively involved in the community, spending a lot of time surfing Equestria Daily, commenting on various excerpts of pony news, talking to a lot of bronies both on DeviantArt and outside the site, and even lending my hand to a pony-related project or two. I love chatting to the many unique individuals who all have their own reasons for adoring the show, and I find it to be a thoroughly engaging experience to converse with other people of a similar mindset to myself. I have seen excellent remixes and mash-ups of the songs and scenes from the show and have been, frankly, amazed by the fan-made content. Only today did I see a custom Pinkie animation made by one very talented individual who should be offered a part animating on the show right away.

#10) I know a brony who legally changed his name to that of a pony. What's up with that?
Answer: Some fans are really extreme when it comes to how much they like the show/fandom. Some love it so much that they're willing to do irrational things, one of which is changing your name legally to that of a pony. At that point, you're most likely taking things too far. I'm all for expressing yourself and feeling free to behave however you wish (as long as it doesn't impact on others), but the primary issue with the pony-name thing, apart from the inherent ridicule that'll arise from it, seems to be lasting appealing.
Consider that the show won't be around forever. Whether it lasts for another year or two, it's highly unlikely that you'll be watching new "Friendship is Magic" episodes in 2020. By that point, it's reasonable to assume that the fandom will have slowed down a heck of a lot. Logic suggests that when episodes stop being produced, interest in the show will dwindle; som

Mangabot in wonderland A short girl quietly stood in the garden, scratching at her dress as she frowned looking over the grass yard that was now full of mud puddles from the rain.

"You can not play in the mud, for you are a lady, Manga," a butler said from behind her as he stood straight. He looked down at Manga quietly. "Plus your mother wishes for you not to get your clothes dirty, so you are a proper lady," he said softly.
"Well i hate these stupid dress's, i dont want to be a proper lady, and all i want to do is get muddy!" Manga huffed quietly. She turned and looked at her butler. "I want to be a warrior! or a soldier actually do something with my life instead of having men always do stuff for me!" she said putting her hands on her hips and looking not so happy.

There is one thing,

Someone to live for every day,

But to me shes beautiful,
Perfect in almost every way,

Caring every single day,
She's funny and nice,
Thats easy to say,
No matter what she says,
She has a heart,
Bigger then most,
Shes beautiful in every way,

Even if shes a distance away,
I love her,
I would mail her my heart,
But saddly i cant,
My hearts been torn and wripped,
By many many people,
Im sure no one could ever love me,
But she has prooven me wrong,
I have to say,
Shes perfect in every way,
She is smart no matter what she says,
She's funny and helps cheer me up every day,
She's caring when most are not,
And most of all,
She gets me,
For who i am,
What i am,
She has a mind of her own,

"Now," Drysi said in Russian, "We are going to iron the these aprons."
Maria understood all but the last word, and looked up at Drysi for clarification.
"What are 'aprons'?" She asked in careful Russian. Drysi pulled one of the newly laundered aprons out and held it up. Maria's eyes grew large. "It's so pretty!" She murmured in German, reaching out to touch it, only to check herself and put both hands behind her back. Drysi smiled faintly, lowering the tradtional apron. Clearly, her young charge had been scolded in the past for touching things that didn't belong to her.
"You carry this pile, and I will take this one." Drysi placed a stack of aprons in her outstretched arms, then collected her own. "This way, please." The two joined the Consulate staff in the next room. The staff, mostly bears, smiled and welcomed them to their midst. While most of the Russian flew fast and thick over her head, Maria kept catching a single word repeated over and over again.

The dinner lay in waste. The salad bowl had been reduced to a few bedraggled leaves, the wurst to a large greasy spot on their plates. Maria and Wilhelm sat back in their chairs and relaxed, letting their meal digest as they sipped the last of the Spätburgunder from their wine glasses.
"So, what are your plans for Weihnachten?" Wilhelm asked over the rim of his glass.
"Sorry to disapoint, Bruder, but I have a date." Maria said with a secretive smile.
"Really? Is he a puffin?" Wilhelm shot back, not the least bit perturbed.
"Nein." Maria shook her head, her smile disappearing. "Schrödinger and I are transfering Ulric Vegardsen to Berlin."
Wilhelm regarded her for a moment, then got up and went to the liquor cabinet.

Yefim glanced over his shoulder. Maria had changed into pajamas and was standing in the doorway to the guest room.
"I think I have it, but thank you." Yefim placed the tray of dirty dishes on the table by the entrance to his apartment. When he turned around Maria was still standing there.
"Still not tired?" He asked.
Maria shook her head. "Do you have something I can read?"
Yefim frowned for a moment, tapping his thumb against his beak.

Ivan sighed, pushing his laptop to one side, and pulled out the drawer of his bedside table, flipped it over to reveal a flask taped to the bottom.
"Here, you need this more than I tonight." He tossed the flask at Wilhelm. Wilhelm caught it, and looked at it for a long moment, then tossed it back.
"I need to study."
Maria hung up, and flopped down on the couch, choking down a wail. Logically, she knew her brother wouldn't abandon her without due cause, but she couldn't help but feel furious that he wasn't there. He was her big brother! He'd jumped into a raging river once, he could do anything!

"Slow down, slow down!" Wilhelm laughed, a genuine laugh. Ivan sitting at his desk looked over, startled to hear laughter from his roommate.
Maria, in her room with the door closed so as not to disturb Yefim as he worked, took a deep breath, privately relieved to hear Wilhelm laugh. He didn't laugh often enough as it was in her opinion.
"Frau Jakov is teaching me Russian, and Frau Natasha is teaching me to dance and Herr Fomin lets me read books, real books! - not e-books, like from the library, but real paper books."

"Aren't you coming to get me?" There was such loneliness in her question, Wilhelm had to choke back a groan.
"I can't, not yet." Maria could barely hear his reply. "I want to, I really do, but I can't."
Wilhelm felt like he'd been punched in the stomach.
"The Uni, they won't let me. Schwester- I, I, ...please just go with Fomin when he arrives. I'll get back as soon as I can. I just don't know when that is."
Maria was quiet for so long Wilhelm began to wonder if the call had been dropped.
"Ja Wilhelm." There was a funny catch in her voice, one Wilhelm instantly recognized. She was about to cry.
"I'll call first thing in the morning." He murmured reassuringly, pinching the bridge of his beak. "And before you go to sleep at night."

"Latte with a shot of almond." Grunwald breathed in the scent of the beverage and slowly opened her gold-green eyes. "You must have read my mind."

"I am she. How may I help you?" She asked, taking off her reading glasses. Her word perfect German sounded slightly off, the vowels softened as she spoke. Tell-tale signs, Yefim had learned, of someone from a German canton of Switzerland.
Yefim walked in and extended a hand. "I am Yefim Formin, Russian Attaché. I was told to see you about the Müller investigation."

The night air hung heavy over the dorms in Kiev, as students spent another sleepless night bathed in the glow of their laptops, reviewing classnotes and required texts. Finals loomed larger than the full moon, and the desperation was almost tangible. But in one dorm the bare lightbulb hanging from the ceiling did not fall on a student in studious comtemplation. In this dorm room, on the third floor, window facing the east side of the famous Red University Building, a young man struggled to stuff thirty-five kilos of personal effects into a a twenty kilo bag. His dormmate, twelve years his senior and in the same year of study slipped in and surveyed the damage. The penguin's normally meticulously maintained half of the room was a disaster, clothes scattered about, library books shoved aside, as if dumped to make room for the luggage on the bed.

Phineas got the entire computer system set up as quickly as he could before handing it over to his brother; the system had been another one of Phineas' ideas, although Ferb had organized it in a manner which would not stimulate any suspicions from their parents. Normally, Phineas was the one who spoke to the computer when it gave results, but because he was unable to communicate, he handed the role over to Ferb.PnF: Vocal Blues ch5 in Fan Fiction More Like This
"You didn't rig it like the Vault lights, did you?" Ferb asked.
Phineas stuck out his tongue, making Vanessa laugh. Ferb grinned in reply before beginning to type on the keyboard. "Good afternoon," he said aloud.
The computer screen lit up. "Name and Password please," it spoke.

Ferb raised his head and looked at Phineas. Because of his friendship with Isabella, Phineas hardly ever turned his cell phone off.

It was not often that he punched in the password without his owners' consentFerb had not been too pleased to learn that his pet platypus had decoded it. Considering Perry had a secret lair beneath the house, he hardly if ever used Phineas and Ferb's.

Once Major Monogram had allowed them access to OWCA information, Perry had built an elevator that would take the boys from their bedroom closet to his lair beneath the house. He warned them never to use it unless it was for an emergency such as this; but knowing Phineas' unending curiosity, Perry was not the least bit surprised that the boys had taken the elevator simply to go through some of the platypus' spy gear.PnF: Vocal Blues ch17 in Fan Fiction More Like This
They took this entrance to the lair, since it was the only one that could properly fit both Vanessa and Ferb at the same time.

Buford played on the drum set Phineas and Ferb had in their basement. It had once belonged to Phineas' biological father, Francis Flynn, who had once played the instrument when he was still alive. Vague memories of listening to him bang the symbols still floated about in Phineas' mind, but despite Ferb's ability to teach him how to play the set, the red-head would rather play the guitar or another instrument. The only time Buford played something other than the drums or his acoustic guitar was when he would be playing his saxophone for Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.
Baljeet played his keyboard for most of the practice, although he did exchange it for his electric guitar at one point. Isabella played the keyboard in one song and sh
PnF: Vocal Blues ch20Candace looked at the clock hanging over the exit in the hall over the Danville arena. It was five after seven. Dinner had come and gone; food was still out in case people wished to eat; there were trays of desert and a giant cake that the school's head chef decided to make for the event. High school students were dancing around on the floor in front of the empty stage to music the DJ was playing. Parents and teachers remained seated at the tables in the back and attempted to converse over the happy shouts and cheers of the student body.PnF: Vocal Blues ch20 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Candace moaned softly and tapped her foot beneath the red dress she had chosen to wear. Her hair was down and curled, but at the moment she did not even care if some makeup was out of place. The reason the DJ was still playing was because the band that was scheduled to play was missing two singers.
Phineas and Ferb were still absent.
When Linda and Lawrence arrived with the instruments, they mentioned to their daughter that Ferb had gone to some place

His daughter grabbed it from him and took a piece of meat before passing the plate onto her fiancé. "A little rough, but I'm positive," Candace replied. "As long as I can start saving up a bit for music college, I don't care." Shortly after Phineas and Ferb had helped their mother set the table, Candace and Jeremy arrived. However, because of Phineas' muteness, Ferb made up a clever excuse to keep them away from their sister and her fiancé; he claimed that Isabella needed some help with some singing, and before either of their parents could say anything, Phineas and Ferb had left the house and walked across the street to visit their neighbour.
Of course, Isabella had been informed about this by text, and so instead all three sat in her backyard until Linda called her sons back.
"Have you had any luck on getting accepted at any school?" Linda wondered.

Isabella sighed tiredly while rolling her eyes. Right before heading to the cafeteria for lunch, she had decided to hint in Baljeet and Buford about Phineas and Ferb's dilemma. Unfortunately for that, Baljeet was still having difficulty understanding after the third repetition.
Buford glared at him and swatted the Indian student across the head. "Will that help clear it up for you?" he groaned.
Phineas and Ferb watched them bicker silently before Isabella cleared her throat. "Anyway, so because Phineas can't speak, he needs to communicate using his sketchbook," she went on. "So whatever you need to ask him, expect him to write the answer down, Capiche?"
Baljeet raised his hand like an obedient school boy. "So, is this going to affect Saturday night?" he asked.

It had been, in fact, his pet platypus who had noticed.
Perry had followed Phineas down the stairs merely out of pity for the boy. He had noticed the distress in Phineas' eyes as he got dressed, and although he had been absent for the morning, Perry had in fact re-entered the house early again, and just as his owner dashed out with Ferb attempting to apologize for something he did. Whatever Ferb had said to him, whether the green-head had meant it or not, had hurt Phineas more than anything anyone had ever said to him before.
Perry climbed onto the couch as Phineas left the house and walked out onto the driveway from the window. The platypus watched him sadly, wishing there was some way Phineas could cheer up and be his old self again. Perry loved him the most when he was happy, and he would continue to; with or without a voice.

It was beginning to annoy him because he never got the chance to talk to her. No wonder people are annoyed by me, he laughed.
Rabeka picked up her job very quickly. Other than a simple training, Andrew hardly ever had contact with her. She didn't use the phone as much as the other employees. She was either too shy or self-conscience of her own voice; she didn't communicate well. And even when she did talk, most calls were straight forward and to the point which gained her a lot of success; she unfortunately ended up bearing the brunt of several nasty costumers to start out her work experience.

After brushing his teeth, he went to the stairs and slid the down the rail. It was early, a little after four A.M. He didn't mind getting up early. This was his usual routine: get up, work out, eat breakfast, and go to work.
Andrew needed a good workout every morning to help him get through the day. Werewolves burn a lot of energy, and to keep themselves from getting antsy or jittery, it took a hardy work out each day to control this. A few push-ups and a quick round the park run did the trick.
One would think exercise for a powerful werewolf would be pointless, but in fact, its was essential for their overall health and well-being. A werewolf's metabolism is lightning fast, coupled with a high internal body temperature, he would need to eat a huge amount of carbohydrates every hour to ke

Rabeka lifted her eyebrows and smiled. A werewolf.
Andrew nodded once, and began to clap softly.
She nodded for a few seconds, before letting out a small chuckle.
What? Andrew asked, a little confused.
That's interesting. Rabeka sat back, staring off into space again trying to put the pieces together.
Do you believe me? Andrew asked, eager to know what her real reaction to it was. It was no longer a game.
She breathed in slowly, I think I do.
Andrew was relieved. I can't believe it. She actually believes me. She trusts me, and she knows my secret! His fears were long past him now. She obviously didn't care what he was, as long as she knew, and now she did.
Andrew smiled and sat back, satisfied with the way things had gone. It was much easier than he thought it would be.

Rabeka lay motionless in the cell. She had been banging on the door and crying for what seemed like a whole hour. Obviously at this point, there was no use in trying.
Andrew was now gone, and she was unsure if it was the last time she would ever see him. She went over in her head the things she wanted to tell him, things she didn't have the courage to say before, and the things she was glad to tell him before he was ripped from the cell. She was at least glad she at least had the chance to thank him for doing his best to protect her, but ultimately, the blame fell on her.
"I'm such an idiot," she whispered to herself, tears puddling up in her eyes. She hadn't the strength to lift her arm and wipe them away as they dripped down onto the cold, hard cement floor. She was fully prepared to die now, right then and there. She honestly hoped it would come quick, as it seemed there was no

Otou-san! Otou-san! came a cry from a small girl. She ran around the huge mansion that belonged to her mothers clan. It had been her home ever since she was born. The tiny five year old girl (50 human years) was on a search for her loving father.
Her hair reached her shoulders and would be all black if not for the small streak of orange that made up one of her front bangs. Her body was tiny and wore a tiny pink kimono decorated with; yep you guessed it, Chappy the rabbit. Her right eye was amber, while her left eye was indigo. She defiantly got most of her looks from her mother. In her hand she dragged around stuffed chappy doll.
She stopped in front of her Uncles study to see him working on some files while her other uncle stood behind him.

Traveling for a pony takes a lot longer on hoof than in a machine. This was the number one lesson Flim learned as he made his way back to Ponyville. It had taken him three times as long to travel the same distance he had traveled in the Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000.
Flim noticed the small town of Ponyville coming into view. Jumping behind a bush, in a way that only a childish yet fully grown stallion can. After staying the night in a small and eccentric village, Flim came across a joke shop. Just the thing he needed.
Flim had played a prank on his brother a couple years back, which had involved coat dye and a lot of screaming. Coat die would keep him perfectly disguised in Ponyville, as they would most likely run him out at first glance.
Now behind a bush, Flim replaced his usually cream colored coat with a bright blue. It was perfect, no one would recognize him now! It was the perfect plan. Flim returned to the path a continued on his way to Ponyville, completely unaware of the blu

The last light of day blinked out of existence and Celestia went back to the castle leaving Luna to finish raising the moon.

Luna had honestly expected her to be more squeamish, but she supposed that spending all her free time serving as a caretaker for animals had exposed her to many unsavory things, and her overflowing concern for her friend likely blinded the pegasus to the grotesque nature of their work.Luna's Best Night Ever 11 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The cheerful melodies reflected the happiness that everypony else was feeling.
