Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?More Like This
Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

It was late in the morning as Paradox and Mercury crossed the fields of Sweet Apple Acres to meet up with their colleagues. Since it was the weekend, most of the town's citizens took the day off. But in their minds, there were some things more important than a holiday.
"I keep getting the feeling that this won't be an easy project," the stallion said to his best friend.
"Is anything ever easy?" she asked simply.
As the two doctors trotted through the orchard, they encountered a young yellow filly, staring blankly off into space.
"Apple Bloom?" Dee said, approaching the Crusader. "Are you alright?"
"Huh?" She asked, turning to face the pegasus. Her unusual eyes throwing the filly off for a second. "Oh, I was just watching some...thing..." She pointed to the branches of a tree that was sitting in front of her.
Sure enough, the two elder ponies saw, in the trees, two tiny birds, one yellow, one purple, standing together on a branch. T

The rising amber sun shined through the windows of the Ponyville Library, and in one little corner of the main sitting room, one little dragon was reading through the titles on a book cart, shuffling the tomes around in an effort to make his job just a little bit easier.
"Birds of Central Equestria," he said, reading the title on one of the covers. "Davenport checked that out a week ago. Advanced Orchard Designs, that was Applejack's weekend project."
As he shuffled through the trolley, it wasn't long before he landed on a title that was pink and hardbound. "Romance for Foals," he said. Placing a claw on his head, he tried to remember who last checked it out, but nothing came. It had been a while since he saw this title, but he could always remember who checked out what book in the library no matter how long ago it was. As he began scratching his head in thought, he didn't notice a young purple unicorn trot up behind him.

Rich's Flashback 2:
Rich was cleaning up after an interesting evening. There was not much to do, a few plates and forks to clean and a quick shower and he was out to setup for another fun evening. Ashley knocked on his door and he let her in. After some small talk, not that much, Ashley got to the point.
"I need someone I can trust to watch my back and my sisters backs. Can you come with me on my mission?" Ashley asked.
Rich thought about it, after hearing what Ashley did to find out Steve's name, maybe she can find out what happened to Anna?
"Can you help me find my friend? Anna," Rich asked.
"Do you have any personal items from her?" Ashley asked.
"No, I have nothing," Rich replied.
"OK, that will make finding Anna much harder but it could be done, I will help you look for Anna after I find all of my sisters and do a mission in Antarctica," Ashley explained.
Rich agreed to help Ashley and she said goodbye and

Entry Five: Masks
Given her age, Celestia was well acquainted with the fact that life wasn't fair.
She also knew the price of immortality was that this unfairness just so happened to last a little while longer than everyone else's. The path she preferred may not be the right one for another and this was perfectly okay. Existence was a subjective experience, each pair of eyes able to behold a different sight despite gazing at the same work of art, and she had sat through enough rants and expressions to know that her citizen's needs were severe in their distinctions and variations.
What is a miracle to one may be a curse to another. The princess was no exception to the rule.
It was also a matter of selflessness, Celestia's own double-ended blade. Her unabashed, raw willingness to give just for the sake of giving was both what she stood tall for and what brought her down to her knees. Sacrifice was what her universe w
Equine Vampiris- Chapter 3The bittersweet taste lingered in her mouth as she dropped her prey, the barely conscious mass collapsing onto the dusty path below. With every fading heartbeat, the prey let a little more of red fluid flow from the open wound in their neck. A scowl crossed her lips at the thought of the fluid that sustained her being wasted. With a growl, she started walking back to her nest, the first warm slivers of sunlight beginning to break over the surrounding hills. She could feel herself getting weaker, the sunlight draining away the little strength she got from her feed. But she could still taste the blood around her mouth and savoured the flavour.More Like This
Twilight awoke with a start, snapping upright and letting out a small scream. Her mane was damp with sweat, small beads running down her face and leaving dark purple trails in her lavender fur. She sighed, leaning back and hitting her head on the steel bedhead. Her eyes began to water as she rubbed the affected area. She climbed out of bed, yaw

Three months after Homecoming all the way into Christmas, Luna and Twilight began to take their relationship seriously.
She would send her text messages in the day. and at night.
"Hey. hows your day going?"
"Thinking about you, lunch tasted weird today."
"You look pretty today."
"Wanna hang out?"
"Luna, it's 10pm. Everyone should be in bed!"
"...Wanna hang out? lol"
"Should i come over?"
"Oh my god lol. You really wanna hang out don't you?" Twilight smiled at her phone screen affectionately.
Applejack watched Twilight, amused. Ever since homecoming, the Magi had been acting very strangely. In a very good way, and Applejack would have to wait until Twilight felt she was ready to tell her about who it was she was smiling at. But she just couldn't help herself.
"By the way you're making goo goo eyes at that there phone screen, i'd believe you wanted to make love t' it."
Twilight chuckled at Applejack.

The Equestria Alicorns side of the bleachers erupted, almost knocking Twilight Sparkle over. She was in the bleachers, attending her first highschool football game. Spike was on the side, next to her, yelling and shouting about with all the frenzy. Twilight didn't understand why the crowd was going crazy, but evidently something good had happened. Maybe she should pitch in?
The green football field was littered with several players, Equestria's players in navy and gold, and the opposing team, the Manehatten Manticores wore crimson and bronze. Their mascot had been beaten to the floor by the school's mascot, Ali the Alicorn.
Twilight was dissapointed with the design of the costume. She'd seen many better costumes come out of elsewhere, all and around the internet. She was even a little repulsed by the Manticore mascot's costume. The manticore's nose was partially ripped, and the leather was supposed to be its wings hung like jackets on a coat hanger.

#94) I went to a brony meet-up and I thought it was pretty good fun until we went to Toys R Us. I was sceptical about a bunch of guys (no girls went to the meet) going to the little girl's section of the shop so I kept my distance and I'm glad I did – everyone there except for me became really creepily obsessive about the toys and it was embarrassing to be seen with them in the shop. After we left (I didn't buy anything and the girl on the till seemed really freaked out by us) I kind of felt awkward being seen with them and when they sang a song from the show really loudly at Pizza Hut I wanted to go home fast. What do you make of this?
Answer: There is always the potential for this problem when meeting up with strangers based on a common interest: will you be as into it as they are? The issue becomes slightly more complex when the common interest is My Little Pony, because it's the sort of interest that a lot of people aren't comfortable discussing in great detail outsid
