Magic in the Mid-West Part3 As I walked down Hay Street, I couldn't help but feel like there was something about this town that tried to make things better, despite the recent bad events. The library was now within sight, but still a good distance away. I could see why Rosalba referred to as a tree, though from afar it did look somewhat like a bush that had grown wildly for many years. I stared at it as I walked; ever more perplexed at how a building could come to obtain such as extremely verdant exterior, I began to notice the most beatific of noises. I looked for the source unsure of its origin but eager to discover it. It seemed to radiate from a small park across the street. I couldn't resist, I had to know what it was. The melody drew me in like a siren's song, completely disarmed and mesmerize. It was like a new song you instantly memorize the first time you here it, and then listen to for the nexMagic in the Mid-West Part3 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Magic in the Mid-West Part2 I awoke to the gentle rays of sunlight pushing past the edges of the curtains. Something was amiss but my mind wasn't yet clear enough to discern what it was. I rolled over twice in the next five minutes waiting for the haze of sleep to leave me. I finally sat up and I could think clearly, amazing how that works. I checked my watch, I was astonished to see that 10 o'clock was quickly approaching. I had over slept, and though irritated, knew it could not be changed. I rose and showered, allowing the hot water to give life to my limbs. I finished the rest of my tasks with little interest, dressed and left for breakfast.Magic in the Mid-West Part2 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I decided to be frugal and just partake of the complementary breakfast the motel had. I suspect that they regretted the policy that day, as I always eat like a beast. I enjoyed the food a great deal but was only able to grab one muffin, due to anothe
Magic in the Mid-West Part1 I had forgotten how long I had been driving west across interstate 70, but it had definitely been a quiet a while. I had nothing against Kansas, but amber waves of grain should only go on for so long. I was on a trip out west for my brother's wedding which was to occur in just under a week, and was barely half way there. I had been driving hard for two days by myself already, and it was staring to wear on me. I saw a sign for a turn-off to a small town coming up in three miles. It was still relatively early, only 6:30 in the evening, but I decided to take the exit when it came, only to find the town was actually another twenty miles down the road. I decided it was better to get off and get a good, long night's sleep rather than grab another room last minute. I had sensed my attention wavering that day more than was normal as I drove. I couldn't help grin at the thought that IMagic in the Mid-West Part1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
GalateaSometimes, she is my mistressGalatea in Free Verse More Like This
Sneaking in through my window and seducing me out of sleep
She keeps me up past sunrise, whispering sweet promises in my ear
Silencing me with her smoldering passion, stripping me until inspiration strikes
She makes me sing, until the sheets are slathered in a thick skin of poetry
Sending shivers up my spine and igniting my senses with her ghostly fingers
She is a lover and a shadow, nowhere to be seen when I wake
Sometimes, she is my psychosis
Suffocating and strong, I can do nothing but submit to her grasp
She seethes, like a snake constricting around me until my sight blurs to smoke
Slowly, she consumes me with sick reverence and searing obsession
She stifles me because she refuses to be restrained, yet I long for her kiss
Severing haggard breaths from my lips, leaving me stunned and aching
She is a succubus and a nightmare, haunting me
Sometimes, she is my saint
Stifling sobs against my shoulder, shaking me until my tears start to fall
She has so much

Sometimes I wonder, if you still spend late nights
Staying up thinking of me, making up rhymes
Or other pathetic things to help pass the time
I wonder if you still think we weren't meant to part
Telling everyone you meet how I broke your heart
When you were nothing but deluded from the start
Sometimes I wonder, if you still like to play victim
Connecting to sad songs, cursing my existence
Thinking love could be won through insistence
But maybe I just wonder, why this point of view
Is never given the credit it's due
When so many people suffer to get through
But forgive me for whining, you do more than enough
I'm just writing to say, that sometimes it's rough
To be honest, blunt, and have to get tough
I'm sure that you wonder, why I was always so tense
But being around you was all a fake pretense
And you're just not for me, in a

The familiar voices echoed throughout Princess Celestia's castle as the regal cellist Octavia exchanged a verbal battle with the disc-jockey Vinyl Scratch. The Grand Galloping Gala had just ended, and upon Vinyl's self-proclaimed 'fashionably late arrival', the two rivaling musicians had once again sparked up a pointless debate.
"You just couldn't possibly understand the true beauty of classical music!" Octavia exclaimed.
"You just refuse to let some good music rock your eardrums for once in your stuffy, miserable life!" Vinyl yelled in reply.
"Why, you obnoxious little party freak! You wouldn't know a good tune if it beat your flank halfway across Equestria!"
"And you call your slow, weak songs 'good'? Ol' Granny Smith in Ponyville knows my kinda music's way better than yours, and she's half deaf!"
Octavia immediately pointed her bow at Vinyl, glaring angrily at her.

"Octavia? What...what happened?"
"You passed out from the shock," she answered. "Oh, and you might not want to move your right foreleg too much. It's not in the best shape."
Vinyl looked over at a clock on the nightstand, almost jumping up when she realized the time.
"I'm late for class!"
The pain shot through her body from her sudden movement, and at the same time, she took notice of something else wasn't amiss.
"...You're...not in class, Octavia..."
Octavia smiled. "I worked something out. I went to the principal this morning and explained the situation. Reverb and Distort were immediately called in and suspended before my very eyes, and your teachers are going to send your work here with somepony. They also asked somepony to stay with you and keep you up to date on the material."
"Well, where are they?" Vinyl asked.
Octavia gave her a smile and lightly bopped the unicorn's forehead with her hoof, causing he

First thought after I watched it was Season 4 is going to be amazing. It looks more and more that they are targetting the older audience while still keeping it safe for kids.
Thoughts on each episode clip:
1. Scootaloo episode. We might get to see Scoots fly. The only downside I can see with this is Lauren Faust might not be happy with it since she stated that she wanted Scootaloo to remain a flightless pegasus.
2. Superhero episode. The second I saw the Mane 6, I immediately thought Power Rangers parody and the fact that Spike called them "The Power Ponies". They might be just genertic superheroes but I'm thinking they will be a Power Rangers spoof, though they are in Maretopolis, a play on Metropolis from Superman. But look at Mare-Do-Well, was suppose to be a Batman parody but played more as a homage to Darkwing Duck and Superman.

I figured that since many of my MLP fanfiction ideas feature humanization, I should at least write up a guide in case anyone reading got confused. This is that guide. I will be updating it every so often in order to keep the worlds of humans and ponies somewhat in sync with one another.
While I mention specific episodes of the original show, I will NOT be rewriting any canon stories in the vein of my humanizations. That's called plagiarism, kiddies, and that's both wrong and just plain lazy.
All ponies, other equine species and bovine species featured as actual characters (ie. the buffalo from "Over a Barrel", but not the stampeding cattle herd in "Applebuck Season") are humans, semi-divided by race. Their races are not divided by skin pigment as in our world, but by inherent abilities shared, to a certain extent, by all members of a race.

VinylScratch and Ditzy 'Derpy' Doo, the pub's ukulele player, were taking a short break, both sat either side of Fluttershy. Derpy was trying to light her cigarette, the lighter refusing to comply as Dr. Whooves, her special someone, fetched drinks. Vinyl was happily sharing some of Fluttershy's tea, muttering something about 'alcohol' and 'lent' and 'stupid upbringings'.
Fluttershy shifted slightly, opening her mouth hesitantly but then closed it again, a frown on her face. Vinyl noticed, glancing at her in a sidelong fashion.
