but there’s something I must confess.
I love you, that’s a fact,

Can you hear my heart scream?
I love you with all my heart
and I don’t want us to be apart.
I hope you can see my love
from all the way past the stars above.
Oh Luna, can’t you see I’m holding back my tears,
If only I could get you down here.
Fragile BondsFragile Bonds in Free Verse More Like This
When you get to meet new friends
I sometime forget how easy it it to lose them
One wrong word can make a best friend,to the worst enemy
I met this person,she is amazing
She has quite a past behind her
Yet she continues to strive for the future
A great artist,drawing and writing
I had to get her trust first
It wasn't easy,for making a connection so difficult
I planted a seed that I had to grow
I spread some kindness and honesty over it
Overtime,we got to get know each other
But still,one mistake can easily ruin that
And missed out out on a great and talented friend
And everyone that I had the pleasure to meet
Thank you,you all are great
Without you guys,I would be nothing

So much time together
All went away

They change my life

Leave this boring place and get in the club scene
Time to hangout with all the party stallions and mares
Maybe drink the night away
I get to the club,well dressed and ready to attack

Drinks are being chugged while listening to the wubs

I gawked at the sight
I straighten up and got ready to impress
Talking to her was a breeze
As the music play while I teased
Finally I won her time
That white mare with the blue hair was mine
What happens next?well...

Dream of meeting new people on

Put this desk, a ball and chain tied to me
This counter, it cages my ambitions
The strangers that walk this house of greed
but for now we will call a bank
Walk in, walk out, depression come as my hope leaves
Everyday, the same routine
Although my dreams still follow me
A wide open world fills my mind with possibilities
Seeing all the creatures, like dragons, manticores, griffons
Meeting the different kinds of ponies, young and old
Those who are merchants, farmers,factory workers
artist,teachers,guards,princesses, the list go on
Travel this gorgeous land that we live
Maybe even explore the Everfree Forest
And along this voyage, make tons of wonderful friends
That will stick by my side through everything
All possible, once I obliterate this cage

It let’s you relax and enjoy the scenery.
Take some time off just to clear your head
or smell the air that soothes the lungs with freshness.
Walking with no destination
going without hesitation.
But sometimes, life needs you to run,
rush down your path and sprint.
If you don’t, you will miss the event,
one that will fill you up with regret.
Walking is great for yourself,
but when life needs you to go the extra mile,
Get ready to run!

He wanted me to become a fan of the show as well, because he said that the show has good morals and is pretty funny; despite its original intended audience being little girls. While I don’t enjoy it people trying to make me like something, he’s my best friend, so I thought I’d take his word for it.
This all happened when I was walking home from school with him though, so of course while we were walking he couldn’t exactly send me a link. He said that he would send me a link when he got home. After we parted ways, it was only a short walk home for me.
When I got home, I checked my computer to see if he had sent me a link; his house was a bit farther than mine, and he hadn’t sent me the link because he hadn’t gotten home ye

After walking around for about an hour and a half, Zehnder finally sees someone that he feels like killing. The person seems to be young, maybe still or just out of college. They were walking a large dog, a German Shepard.

Kagekao lied on the floor of the room. He groaned and turned his head, opening his eyes slowly. He looked around in confusion.
He put his hand to his head and moaned; he had a painful headache. Taking the hand away from his face, he saw a few stains of blood on his fingers. He realized that his head was wrapped in bandages, which had become soaked with blood in a few spots.
Kage looked down, he was lying on the floor and wrapped in a blanket. Looking to the side, he saw something lying next to him. Kage sat up and looked at it; it was an odd mask, half black and half white.
Kage picked up the mask and looked at it. Something in his mind told him that it was his, and that he should wear it. Kage put on the mask. The white side of the mask caught the subtle effect of his eyes taking away light in confusion. This effect was amplified and reflected by the mask, which now had a confused expression on the white side of it.
He also noticed that he was wearing a black and white striped scarf.

The human screamed as wings emerged from Scollex’s back and into the air. Before they had a chance to run, Scollex’s arm morphed into a claw and he grabbed them. Morphing his other hand into a claw as well, he slashed the human across the face and neck and dropped them to the ground.
Scollex’s wings folded, and his claws changed back into hands as he watched the human bleed out and die on the ground. This was the fourth kill of the evening, and he was contemplating whether or not to go out and find another unsuspecting human to stalk and kill.

The two demons had made their way to the city that was next to the woods with the house. Before returning to the city where Doku lived, Kage wanted to search this city.
They climbed the buildings to give themselves and eagle eye view of the surrounding area; but they didn’t seem to be able to find any other demons, or even shinigami for that matter.
They continued to search, talking as they went.
“So, tell me more about these shinigami.” Kage asked, looking down at the road from a rooftop.
“Well, that one that I told you about first, the one with the black robes and scythe, he doesn’t seem to be friendly with anyone. I don’t know what his motive is, but he never seems to attack humans, only demons and other shinigami. I avoided him the few times I’ve seen him, and that was a while ago. But I saw him go after this other shinigami once, maybe a year or two ago.” Doku explained, scanning the windows of a seemingly empty building.

I was in a happy and cartoony looking town. Looking around, I quickly realized that I was in Ponyville. I looked around to see if I could find ponies, because you know, Ponyville is where ponies live. And I had no idea what the hell I was doing there, so I just stood there being dazed and confused. I didn't see any ponies anywhere, no background ponies at all. But suddenly around a corner three ponies came running, and they ran past me. They were a little bigger than me, but were going fast so I didn't really catch who they were. I noticed that there was a unicorn, a pegasus, and an alicorn.
Them being the only other sentient creatures there, of course I looked at them, still confused as hell. They ran away, but the unicorn stopped and turned around to look at me. At once I recognized who the unicorn was; black mane and tail, white pelt, light gray hoodie, staring eyes and cut up mouth along with a bloodied knife for a cutie mark; it was Jeff the killer, as a pony.

Doku stayed in the shadows, looking to see which ones to get first. He spotted two of them who were quite close to the building. He moved over to them quietly, without being noticed.
Then he shot out the bladed staff, piercing one of them in the shoulder. They cried out

Our mothers would wrap us in special blankets and calm us down with song
We would cower in holes like tiny rats whilst our parents acted strong
The Dragon would burn our homes away and all would turn to dust and ash
Our entire lives would be swallowed up! In a single crimson flash...
It used to be a time of darkness, where a man would live in constant fear
Yet we have found a special way, to protect the lives that we hold dear
My friends I must now present to you the warriors of the Chosen Eight
A group of our honoured champions, who will slay the beasts we hate!
Now they ride for the Volcanic Wastes where the Dragon call has sounded!
Before the beast can stand its ground they will have it fully surrou

Born from the kiss of a goddess
And drenched in the cauldron of lies.
He emerged as a being of entropy
Bearing the mark of flies...
His wings were made from crow-like feathers
Black as the dust of the night.
His fangs were laden with horrid infection
Made from the stone of blight.
A single bite, was poison enough
And soon they began to change...
The children loved by the lady in white
Soon they became deranged.
Powerful beings of might and magic
They soared through the moonlit sky!
They flew amongst the twinkling stars
But their gift was a burning lie...
Falling to the ground like choking insects
Crawling in the dirt with a painful thirst.
These creatures needed the taste of blood
And their friends would be the first.
Neighbours, comrades, it mattered not!
Survival become an instinctive drive.
To bite and feed was a natural feeling
And horror came when night arrived.
Men or women, children who slept;
Through windows and doors they would slithe

I tracked her down to a squalid cave
Where the entrance smelled of rotting flesh.
Putrid and vile, bloated with maggots;
It stung the nose with every breath.
I avoided choking and steeled my will
For the mouth was a facade to deter the weak.
But the inside was opulent, rich and vibrant;
It matched the prey which I had to seek...
She sat in the center, confident and calm
Displayed on a throne of solid gold.
She wore a dress of beautiful silk
Red in colour, and very bold...
Her scent reminded me of gentle flowers
It soothed the soul to behold this sight.
She appeared in the form of an ancient goddess;
Bathed in a pillar of mystical light...
Do you like what you see, my dearest hunter?
She cooed in musical twit.
I'm afraid I do, my fairest lady
I'll admit that I liked her a bit.
She smiled and stood from her golden throne;
Coming close without a hint of fear...
She licked her lips and smiled at me
Shall I please you now my dear?

Down into well, poor Timmy fell,
Down he fell into the pits of hell.
Brought into hell by an eldritch spell,
Poor little Timmy who fell down the well.
Alone he cowered and shivered and shook,
He shook for hours, so long it took,
So long it took for him to feel well,
Well enough to explore this hell...
Through pathways littered with scenes most gory;
Most gory indeed was little Timmy's story,
A story of fear and suffering defined,
Poor little Timmy, he ran out of time...
Now then, I think I'll go welcome my little guest...

There lies what once was your body, fevered and eaten by disease. Your lips are cracked and bleeding, your arms are both thin and sallow. Do not fear them now, for they are long passed.
Come away now, for we must say your final goodbyes. Here to the mother and father that came to your bedside each day. Here to the brother, who shall honour your name. Do not be jealous of them, my dearest child. For you are simply moving ahead; you have not fallen behind.
“But why, why does it hurt so much?”
Why? Because the memories are still carried within you. Your attachments are still strong in this world. That which you didn’t achieve, that which you haven’t done. All of it is carried as chains upon your body and they will stop you from

Yet here I am; a dirty spirit
A simple soul that sinned...
Gathered in silence, bearing cowls of night
You've come like moths, to a burning light.
These lovely witchlings, so tender and lush
Soon I will give you, a blessed blush...
Take my marking into your flesh
And bear the stigma of our ancient creed...
Tonight you feast in my humble honour
For in your bellies I have planted seed.
Soon it will grow and begin to mature
You will feel it breathing inside your heart.
The gift to change this wretched world;
But first it must be torn apart...

#97) I am an open brony with everyone, except my parents. I'd tell them, but my dad will not approve. He even disapproved and called me gay when I was really into "Phineas and Ferb". Imagine if he found out [about "Friendship is Magic"]! There's no way he would approve. But I want to buy merchandise, shirts, and other stuff. So what do you think I should do about telling my parents?
Answer: Your dad sounds like a royal prick. I don't know what his upbringing was like, but your sexuality isn't defined by watching a simple TV show. "Phineas and Ferb" might be geared towards an audience younger than yourself, but I'm not sure why it would be considered, in his eyes, to be 'gay'. I think he might be getting mixed up between watching something that's distinctly effeminate and watching something that targets kids in general. If anything, "Phineas and Ferb" is a show pitched at boys (although, naturally, it does have universal appeal) and so I can see why you'd be worried about

#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

#88) I'm in love with Fluttershy. Kids at school have figured this out, and I can't hear the end of it... They do nothing but hate on me because I have sexual feelings for Fluttershy. Why are they doing this? Why can't they leave me alone? They even went so far as to follow me home and ah, watched me through my window having ah intercourse with a special Fluttershy plushie of mine... They went and told the whole school. I didn't even know they had followed me! After this, everything got worse.
I attempted (but luckily failed) suicide because of all these horrible things...

A part of me hopes - and knows - that this question is a joke, but an even larger part of me hopes that it isn't; it would be highly interesting and entertaining if you really did have these feelings for the character of Fl

#113) Three months ago...I went to brony meet-up in my local area. I won't say where it was so it won't look bad on other bronies from the area but there were about 17 people there. One was a guy and he and me got on really well at the meet-up. We decided to meet up a few more times just the two of us. We met up three times and everything was fine. I found out he smoked pot and drank a lot at the third meeting and said I didn't like it but he was okay with that and I didn't mind too much. Anyway after that we were talking through Skype like normal but he was kind of excited to meet up again and he said he loved me. He lives about an hour and ten minutes away so we met up again two weeks later. But when we met up again he was sort of desperate and forceful.
Anyway, he said he wanted to have sex but I wasn't really in the mood and I was a virgin so I didn't really want to lose it to him that quickly. You read that right - 'was a virgin'. I'm not sure if it was rape or not, because at

#73) My best bro and I have been bronies for a while now. I would never bring up being a brony on purpose to anyone who didn't know. But now we're doing a project in Literature class, and my friend is doing his on how he became a brony. I don't think it's a good idea. In fact, I find it embarrassing. What should I do?
Answer: This is something that seems to happen reasonably often people become big fans of "Friendship is Magic", and then fancy teaching the world to sing by shedding light on it in a class. And while you could argue that older individuals liking the show is an interesting point of observation, it's not particularly academic (not in terms of literature, at least) and so a presentation on it doesn't seem appropriate in general for that type of class.
It might be because I'm in the UK, but I know for a fact that if I presented on MLP in one of my university seminars I wouldn't be taken seriously by the teacher or the students. We tend to do

#104) Aren't bronies and furries the exact same thing? I think it's funny that so many bronies get offended when they're compared to furries. I don't see furries getting quite as offended about the comparison. Hah.
Answer: This is really the million-dollar question: are bronies and furries the same thing? The answer is, awkwardly, a little bit of both. Let's set the cards upon the table: there are all sorts of variables that come into the equation when defining exactly what a brony is. That's the first difficulty; if a brony is merely an adult watching the show, then you can't effectively argue that they're furries by definition just for doing that. If you did, then any parent watching the show with their child, or anyone who watched "Watership Down" or "The Animals of Farthing Wood" as children, or myriad other cartoons about animals, would be furries, which is ludicrous.
Just watching "Friendship is Magic" doesn't create a latent association with furries, despite what s

A place forgotten by time

It is known as the Crystal Empire.
In this place most real a bird of peace could sing and reach the farthest star;

You had to face the facts; he left you, and you would never see him again.Jake x Reader - Life Adventure - Chapter Three in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Jake. The boy whose hair had the most perfect form. The boy whose glasses made him look so intellectual. The boy who adventured all across the land and told you his tales so you could fall asleep at night. The boy who, when clueless, was practically the most adorable thing on the planet. The boy who turned around and showed his bum just to give you the worst nosebleeds.
And most importantly, the boy who was the everything in your life. You loved him more than anything, and he had just gotten up and left you. He didn’t bother telling you the truth, which is odd, because you figured that if he ever did leave you, he would tell you up front. He wasn’t the kind of guy that would do that, or at least you’d never thought so. Part of you wanted to believe that Jake would be back, and the ot

which comes with the pain.
You may fall down,
and scrape your knee,
but focus on the positive,
instead of the negative:
an old love tale,
the greener side,
and kids' bright eyes.
Your first love,
a baby's first tooth,
and a welcome truth.
The world isn't so bad,
when you focus on,
the more welcome parts,
which can lift your heart.

HiddenA hidden part of myself,Hidden in Free Verse More Like This
somewhere deep inside,
confused and alone,
I let that part die.
I'll light a candle,
mourn for that part,
I've a blackened soul,
a cold, dark heart.
Forced to be strong,
I've a responsibility,
must not lose focus,
they're all that matter to me.
But the part of me that has died,
deep inside has been resurrected,
I want it to be set free,
I promise that it isn't forgotten.
But now may not be the time,
pain can't reach my heart,
since that is all that surrounds me;
I know I'm not ready to break apart.
But to be strong you must break,
to pick up the shattered parts,
but tonight I must say to you,
my heart cannot own a scar.
I'm not ready to fall apart.
Wilting RoseYou gave me the flower of love,Wilting Rose in Free Verse More Like This
now my wilting rose,
flying high above,
my wings carry can me high.
Two sides of you,
just like a rose,
the thorns that hurt,
the petals that are smooth.
But now our love is dying,
our rose now wilting too,
the petals blacken and fall,
my tears are long overdue.
I guess a rose really is a flower of love,
just like love; it withers and dies,
until you buy that fake one,
that never really satisfies.
Why me?You fight to the end,Why me? in Free Verse More Like This
but know it is useless,
heart pounding quickly,
blood flowing endlessly,
memories cross your foggy mind,
why? You question.
Why me? Selfishly you think,
why not him? Why not someone else?
your lungs struggle,
the darkness welcomes you,
pulling, tugging, persisting,
"come to me; it's time" it whispers,
no, you tell yourself,
I'm too young,
I've not lived my life,
too many things not said,
too many things not yet done,
but there is no chance.
Give up now;
give your life up to the man with the gun,
who foolishly acted selfishly.
He did not care about you,
nor your family or goals,
just the wallet in your back pocket.
The money that allows him to live,
but for you to die.
You fight to the end,
but know it is useless,
heart pounds till it stops,
blood no longer flows,
your lungs quit.
HappyRunning fast,Happy in Free Verse More Like This
running from my past,
don't look back,
I lost it, I finally cracked.
Trip and fall,
"I'm lost" I whisper,
yell out and try to call,
run for so long my feet blister.
Look behind me,
afraid of what I see,
breathing getting shallow,
chest getting hollow.
Rip my heart out,
stomp on it some more,
give up and fall down,
I couldn't do it anymore.
Let the dark get to me,
all I do is smile,
gave up the fight and now I'm free,
you were sick and vile,
and now I'm happy.
The Broken Smile"Do you fear death?"The Broken Smile in Emotional More Like This
"Why would I do that?"
"Why wouldn't you? It's the time that ends life, the day we must say goodbye" his voice was broken, clipped, and so obvious that he spoke about his own fear.
"But one who lives life fully must be prepared to say goodbye at all times" I spoke with a grin.
"Do you fear the dark?"
"Yes, the dark" his fists were clenched.
"The only darkness I fear is the one that resides in all of our hearts, waiting for a day to be let free" his eyes burned dangerously, his frustration rising.
"Then what is it you fear? Surely you must be afraid of something!" I smiled sadly, amber eyes sparkling like diamonds with the hope and fear I hold.
"Oh course I do. I fear nightmares that hold no meaning. I fear dreams that fade before they shine. I fear the day children's laughter suddenly stops as they understand the world and how it works. I fear all those stories that are left unsaid. I fear those broken words that fall on deaf ears. I fear the day that t
