A Canterlot HauntingThere is a phenomenon few know about, that graces the Canterlot Performance in the deep hours of night. The baritone performance of travelling stallions would cease, the crowd unleashing the required applause as the performers bow out with all the attempted grace such ponies can have. The murmur of small talk and criticism would simmer to nothingness, and as the cleaners swept through the aisles, cleared away the rubbish and ruin of the night, it would begin.
Many of the younger or newer staff members had ridiculed tales away with an sweeping hoof, having heard too many stories of pranks and hoaxes. The high, floating tone of the cello in the breeze would go unnoticed. Many of the staff had surrendered their efforts to find the very obvious hidden gramophone, while others still found the melody too ethereal for their ears. The midnight cleaning staff refreshed its ranks quite often.
It was as the cleaners shuffled out the door, elder stallions chided by the young ones for their naivety
We Are the Cool Kids (Steven Universe Parody)Author's Note: This is my last parody of the Steven Universe opening theme. So far, the parodies I wrote are The Crystal Jamies and the We Bare Bear one. This time, it's about the "Cool Kids" from Steven Universe. I haven't seen a parody of them yet so I wrote one. There was already the Homeworld Gems version but I didn't write that, it was a picture/comic. Enjoy! Hope you like my new parody.More Like This

Mother of the Year When it came to taking care of two little kids, Pearl would win Mother of the Year.More Like This
She was an expert when it came to the wellbeing of a 4 year old, and a baby that was merely nine months old. One minute she would have to answer the wailing cries of a hungry baby Steven from the small playpen in the living room, and the next to the constant running of a hyperactive young Amethyst who had just awoken from her afternoon nap.
“Ugh Amethyst can you not,” she would shout as little Ame made a mad dash for the kitchen where Pearl was once occupied. She gingerly made her way across the room, avoiding Legos, dolls, crayons and coloring books that littered the floor, courtesy of Amethyst, to where little Steven was waiting. When she finally reached the playpen, she looked down to see young Steven standing up
Magical Remedies (Pearlnet)Note: Little Sardonyx has been given the name of Nina in this one-shot. And there is no set thing as to what Pearl and Garnet are arguing about. I have left it somewhat up to the readers’ interpretations of what Pearl may have lied about and did behind Garnet’s back, (plus I couldn’t think of a reason, lol!).More Like This
Screams and shouts had enveloped the entire proximity of the tiny three bedroom home. Poor little Nina sat in the corner of her room, with her tiny hands over her ears, trying to muffle the screams. It had been like that for the past week, constant screaming and arguing the minute her two mothers came in contact with each other. She wasn’t sure why they were arguing. Whatever it was, she didn’t like it.
Today the argument started when her Mom, Pearl was preparing dinner for tonight, and little Nina was sitting quietly at the table perfecting her latest ma

The song starts as the KND logo presents itself floating through space, with the KND Moonbase in the background.
These days, I don’t know where I’ve come from
Rachel, Nigel, Eva, and Violet are walking under a starry sky as silhouettes, and their other friends shortly appear as well.
I’ve forgotten the ways of love ‘cause it’s been a while.
At the same time, Nolan, Danika, Scarlet, and Lehcar are walking from the opposite way. Both teams encounter each other and stop with surprise.
For us, life is five minutes’ introspection

The song starts off when Nigel Uno is overlooking space from GKND H.Q.’s balcony. He looks to his left as Ava appears, and the two nod to each other before hopping off and landing in their ships.
Take ooooff at the speed of soooound.
Nigel and Ava fly through a fleet of Irken ships, shooting lasers from their ships as they do so.
Bright lights! Colors all arooouuund.
Nigel and Ava zip by the camera and give grins in slow-motion.

Talking FeelsSteven woke in a cold sweat. He climbed out of bed and dragged himself to the kitchen table where Pearl was preparing breakfast. "P-pearl? Do you have a minute?"More Like This
She put down her spatula and made a seat next to him. "Yes, Steven?" His lip quivered. "Steven," she softly touched his face, "what's the matter?"
He shut his eyes, letting the dam that held back his tears break. He buried his face into her chest. "You don't really love me, do you? Mom's gone and I'm here. You blame me for that a-and..." Steven stopped, choking on his sobs.
Pearl was dumbfounded. Where was all of this coming from? She sighed, putting her hand on his back and stroking his dark brown curls. "We still love you. It's just Rose was very important to us. We were heartbroken when she died, but, she gave us the best gift in the world. Do you know what that is?" He shook his head. "You!" She giggled. "You're funny, and talented, and you're getting so much better with your shield. All of Beach City loves you for that. A
Fan Theory 001: Rose could be Pink Diamond if... The latest theory in the Steven Universe fandom is that Steven's mother, Rose Quartz, was actually a member of the Diamond Authority: Pink Diamond. The idea that a Pink Diamond existed comes from the Pink Diamond crest seen in the background of the show, particularly on some of Pearl's costumes. While gems are capable of shape-shifting, Steven Universe Theories noted that they cannot disguise their stones. So, there is only one way that Rose could have been Pink Diamond and that is if Pink Diamond was a fusion. She could have been Rose Quartz merged with a diamond, or merged with a lower caste gem.More Like This
Regardless, of who the other half of the fusion was, this former identity could relate to how Rose met Pearl. Again, most of the appearances of the Pink Diamond crest were on Pearl's costumes. This could mean that P

The midnight moonlight was spilling into a delicate puddle on Fluttershy’s bed. Stars twinkled in the heavens above the mare’s little cottage. Fluttershy was warm in her bed, but she couldn’t get to sleep. She groaned and got out of bed, her fur itching restlessly. She trotted downstairs, taking extra care to be gentle with her walking, as to make sure not to wake some of the animals that slept in her home.
She pushed open the door and was greeted with a gentle breeze of wind, her bubble gum colored mane flowing in the wind. It felt great to be outside, and the air had a sweet smell to it. The yellow pegasus closed the cottage door and began to trot aimlessly, thinking about what could have been keeping her up.
Soon she slapped herself with a hoof. Rainbow Dash’s birthday was coming up soon-May 15th was the date, and it was only May 13th. She was clueless about what to get her cyan friend. The yellow pegasus pony kicked the dirt, huffing her soft mane out of her

Rainbow Dash shoved her way through the stubborn door, the result of crashing could be heard from inside. Twilight's eyes flicked around, preparing herself for anything. Rainbow Dash shoved Twilight away from her books and into her room.
"Rainbow! I'm doing some important stuff that cannot be disturbed or else I can't go to Canterlot!" Twilight shouted angrily, using her magic to flick off Rainbow as if she wasn't even there.
"But you can't leave for three years! Just think about Pinkie and how devastated she'll be! And what about your friends! What if we need the Elements right away and you're off in Caterlot reporting your Princess duties!?" Rainbow screamed, a hint of sadness crumbling and cracking her voice. Twilight sighed, then flopped herself down on to her bed. She sobbed quietly and raised a hoof to slowly pull Rainbow into a long embrace.

commentary by Her Royal Highness, Princess Celestia
Once there was a good-hearted earth-pony king who lived in a beautiful castle in a mountain valley. His lands were bountiful, his subjects prosperous, and he was friends with the neighboring kingdoms. He treated his many servants well, and they all took pride in keeping the castle in perfect condition. With little to do but enjoy life, the king took to reading and painting and playing the clarinet, and seldom had to leave his lovely home.
There is never a lifetime which is always happy, however. A springtime eventually came with very little rain, and by summer the land was dry. Crops were not growing well, and even the weeds were stunted. The gardeners therefore sent one of their number to tell the king.
“How can this be?” said the king after the gardener had told of the dusty earth

If one more than any other
Is she whom you would please
If a certain lady's glance
Is more bracing than a breeze
If there is one whose esteem
Is more precious than bright gems
If a saddened look from her
Is all that's needed to condemn
Some deny that such a one
Could embody perfect love
Or she who stands before them
Could be she whom I speak of
If there is one in whose eyes you would meet the test
Why would you name any other "she who is the best?"
Luna's NightlightMore Like This
A young Celestia awoke to stifled cries in the night. Her vibrant, cherry blossom eyes pierced the darkness in a sleepy haze as her dream faded from her memory. She looked around as she heard the panicked noise again, assured it wasn’t a part of her dream.
With the light of the moon, she could make out the tiny, blue ball that was her little sister across the room.
Luna was curled up and trembling, only her frightful, green eyes visible past the blue wisps of her tail she was hiding behind.
With a knowing smirk, Celestia rose from her bed and patiently trotted over to the miniscule filly. She laid down beside Luna and gently reached for her.
Luna gave a terrified squeak at the unknown touch before seeing it was someone she could trust. She quickly unfurled and rushed to Celestia’s side, preferring the more powerful company of her sister over the unwelcoming darkness.
Celestia gently stroked Luna’s short, flowing mane as the young princess slowly calmed down.

When the Autumn Leaves
The wind brings signs of colder mornings,
Prolonging dusk surpasses the light,
Gone are those days:
Summertime of warmth and laughing,
Summer's time to slumber now
(For) some time
Reaped the harvest, filled the stocks,
Found the scarves and boots from loft,
Gathered firewood to keep our hearths lit and lively.
You can see how the time of green is gone:
Its course is old and fading, losing its vividness.
Months of winter holding near,
We are watching the autumn leaves
Glowing bright in their gilded colors.
Season of work after the summer growth:
Memories of the vivid days still in mind.
Season of change before the winter rest:
Painted world before the snow-white veil.

Wakeup call for the farmin' toil
Morning breeze greets the early wakin' folk,
Eat a strong breakfast; we're out all day long.
Smell the air fresh with leaves and apple scent,
Walk on path carved on the verdant fields.
Apple orchards waiting for their chores
Red fruits' sea, harvesting ripe.
This is where my heart and soul belong,
This is the place that I can call my home:
'Twas this land my gramps ploughed through, where my ma and pa lived too.
Where my line planted their apple seeds, where I now grow their trees.
In this soil I have my roots; here I can rest up my hooves.
Here I tend my seedlings' fruit here my heart's seeds grow and bloom.

Truth: The final chapterOctavia felt a rush of cold air nip at her fur, and immediately didn’t want to be outside. It wasn’t that she regretted her decision to have this talk, it’s just that she wasn’t much of a cold-weather pony. Octavia much preferred the heat of the summer; the warm breeze caressing her frame.

Why I love Bronycon, ponies, and my friendsI realized - While I was at Bronycon, seeing all these wonderful, friendly people, I didn't find myself wishing I was a different person. There, I felt happy with who I am, and I even felt proud of being me. This is normally a difficult, sometimes impossible, feeling for me to find in my life. I wonder if many others who go there feel this way, too.More Like This
