  1. This is a story I wrote a few years ago that I haven't shown anyone just because I didn't know many people; I decided putting it on the internet would gather more readers. It isn't based on any fandom; it's completely original, and I'm posting it here just because I want as many people as possible to see it. Potential Grimdark Warning: While when I was writing it I wasn't meaning for it to be particularly dark, looking back over it I realize not everyone sees things the same way as I do. For those of you of an emotionally sensitive bent, there's some screwed-up stuff in this. Again, I was actually in a pretty good mood while I wrote most of this, but even while I wasn't specifically trying to create unpleasant emotions, some readers may react in that manner. Anyway, with that out of the way, please also ignore every characters' name in this; I had a very embarrassing idea of what cool meant back then. All feedback is welcome and much desired! Thanks for your time! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VLrwVOwd8W5-E2k7Ens4_7c7xKEpEQ2TI50DzwMGZA8/edit?usp=sharing Ok, I fixed the link now so it actually works. *facehoof* I think my internet prowess has actually been getting worse.
  2. I have officially finished writing my new, original short story. I put a lot of work and editing into writing this. I know that there are tons of ways that I could have made this better, but it is what it is. One thing that I must admit though, Rarrian (one of the characters in the story) is heavily inspired from Rarity's personality, so this is, I guess, somewhat MLP related, but completely original. Enjoy. The Rarr Event of a Life Time I sat down on the large, red couch in the school lounge with Rarrian. Her eyelids were covering half of her beautiful, cyan eyes. I could empathize with her; I got six hours of sleep the previous night due to an overload of homework from my science class. But she seemed like she got no more than four hours. Obviously in much worse condition than I am. “Tired?” I asked, trying to start a conversation. “Just a little bit,” she rolled her eyes at me. She laid her head on the back of the couch, and closed her eyes, probably trying to get a little more sleep before class started. “Why do classes start so early?” I checked my Timex watch; it was 6:30. Class started in fourty-five minutes. We were only there because they take attendance one hour early. “I know it sucks, but complaining about it won’t make it any better.” “Easy for you to say. Some of us have a little more to do in their lives. I haven’t gotten a decent sleep for two months! I have to wake up at 5:00 just to brush my hair.” I held back a laugh, but the temptation subsided when I took a look at her head. I didn’t even notice how messy her hair was before, but now that she pointed it out, there were blond strands curling upward. But other than that, it really wasn’t that bad. But to her, every strand counts. I dared not try to convince her, though, in the fear that she would go on a rant on how wrong I was. I respect her opinion, but I think she’s beautiful no matter what condition she’s in. “But that seems to be the least of your issues at the moment. You look like you haven’t gotten a minute more than four hours of sleep. What’s going on?” “Oh, nothing,” she began as she opened her eyes. “It’s just… oh, you don’t need to know. It’s a lady’s problem. “What is it, tell me?” I kind of just said it instinctively. For a moment, I got the feeling I was going down a dark road, and every wrong action from this point on could lead to terrible consequences. “Belachrome, please, this doesn’t concern you.” Despite Rarrian’s reluctance to tell me, I felt that this actually did concern me. But I knew that it wouldn’t be easy. “Okay, well, what else has been going on with you?” Rarrian turned towards me. “I spent my time yesterday hanging out with friends after school.” “Did you hang out with Clenauria again?” “Clen? No, she’s been hanging out with Squiphler again. I don’t understand why she would enjoy hanging out with such a fool after school hours.” I grew a subtle look of insult on my face. Squiphler is a nice guy… despite his silly ways. “What about Syneria?” “With Drakenor yesterday. That boy needs to get his life out of his head and be social.” I was so confused. These were Rarrian’s friends that she was complaining about. Has she been having boy issues lately? “Rarrian, I couldn’t help but notice that you are complaining about other guys at the moment. Is something bothering you?” “Belachrome, I told you, I don’t wish to talk about this.” “Why don’t you… wait a minute, is this what you didn’t want to tell me?” Rarrian jumped a little bit. “Belachrome, I’m done talking.” “Come on, Rarrian. I’m your friend.” Rarrian gave me an intimidating look. I was a little scared. “Can you not trust me?” I said weakly. “I can’t trust boys at all these days.” I think I hit the gold mine. I began my questioning in a calm voice. “Rarrian, why can’t you trust other guys?” “Belachrome, give a girl some personal privacy!” Her voice was cold, and it seemed unwise to press further. I feel bad getting Rarrian this mad just to get some information out of her, but as a friend, I feel like it’s my duty to take the initiative. “Please, Rarrian. Tell me.” She gave me a menacing frown. “Belachrome, stay out of my business!” she raised her voice at me. I was starting to feel like this wasn’t such a great idea, but for the sake of helping my friend, I wasn’t going to give up. “Rarrian, why don’t you want to tell me?” “Why?! Isn’t the answer obvious?” “Actually, no Rarrian. I haven’t a clue why you don’t want to tell me. “You know the reason!” she started breathing harshly in my direction. Her teeth were clenched with a strong grip. “No, Rarrian, I don’t know, and it clearly isn’t as obvious as you think. How about you tell me?” I couldn’t help myself. I was starting to speak in a harsher tone. I know it’s not helping my case, but my patience was wearing thin. Rarrian’s breathing calmed down minimally, but enough to start speaking. “Well, obviously, it’s because… because…” She started to grow a nervous look on her face. I was starting to feel that she was just talking without thinking, so I just had to wait this out. “Yes, Rarrian? You have my undivided attention.” “Because… I… I can’t… I don’t… I just can’t trust other guys! A-and…” “…Is there another reason?” “Y-yes! It’s… i-it’s… uh…” “Are you sure there’s another reason?” I wasn’t even talking with a sharp tone anymore, I knew I was breaking through, and all I had to do at this point was remain calm and collective. “…No, I-I just… can’t trust other guys! Not even you! She went back to shouting at me. “Why can’t you trust me?” Her anger went down again. But instead, she seemed like she was on the verge of tears. “Because… because I… you… I can’t…” I lowered the volume of my voice; “Why can’t you trust me?” It seemed to be helping. Hers lowered as well. “Because I… I… just can’t!” Now tears were officially sparkling in her eyes. Now was the moment to act. “Yes you can.” “No, I can’t trust you!” Rarrian said in a slightly quieter voice. The first tear escaped her left eye. “Yes you can.” I lowered my voice to almost a whisper. “No, Belachrome, I can’t trust… I just can’t.” “Yes you can,” my voice was nothing more than a whisper. “Belachrome, you don’t…” She sniffled, as a couple more tears escaped from her eyes. “You don’t understand! Please stop!” She wiped the tears from her face, probably hoping I somehow still haven’t noticed her crying. “You can trust me.” “Belachrome, please, I…” she closed her eyes as a last, desperate attempt to prevent her tears. “Trust me, I’m your friend.” I still spoke in a whisper. “B-Belachrome…” “I’m your friend.” “But…” Rarrian’s eyes started flowing freely with tears. Her voice had no power left for anger. “I can’t trust you.” She was speaking no louder than an average conversational voice. “Yes, you can. Yes you can. You can trust me,” I stated without ever leaving a whisper. “I…” Rarrian lost all courage to keep herself contained, and started openly crying. She buried her face into her hands, and cried without preventing any aspect. That was the final straw. I couldn’t stand seeing her so upset for any longer; I moved towards her, and wrapped my arms around her. My embrace firmly encased her body, and I could feel every bodily shake that came from her crying. I started patting her backside, and she continued to let out her tears. “It’s okay. I’ve got you, don’t worry.” Rarrian continued to cry for the next minute, and I kept my embrace around her. “Everything’s going to be alright, Rarrian,” I stated in just over a whisper. “Do you think you can uncover your eyes?” Rarrian breathed in through her nose with a big sniffle, and weakly shook her head. “Come on, Rarr, we’re friends, I don’t think of you any differently just because you’re in tears. Just show me your beautiful eyes.” Rarrian started to uncover her eyes. It was a painful sight; they were red, and very puffy. It was such a mess, and yet, so beautiful at the same time. She looked shy to uncover them any further than half way, probably feeling ashamed to look into my purely natural eyes, but I didn’t think any differently of her. She covered them up again, and the bittersweet sight of her eyes was gone. “I’ve got you.” I patted her back softly. “I know you’re a strong, young lady, Rarrian. Just please uncover your eyes for me.” Rarrian didn’t move. She almost started shaking up, and would probably start shedding tears again. “Come on, Rarr. I know you can look me in the eyes.” I took my right hand, and placed it on her left wrist. “I gave the minimalist force of a tug that could be managed. She pulled back, but I didn’t increase the force of my pull. It was only an incentive. In the end, she will have to be the one to reveal her face. “Rarrian, I can’t do this for you. Take all the time you need, but this isn’t the Rarrian I know. The Rarrian I know is very outspoken, and is never afraid to share her thoughts. But please at least uncover your beautiful eyes. I’m not going to pull any harder than this, so no pressure.” Her body started shaking less heavily and her silent tears and sniffles cleared up for a moment. She seemed to be in a moment of thought, possibly debating on exposing her face. Her arm was shaking in my hand, and she seemed ready to start crying again, but when I expected the return of her tears, she sighed, and slowly started uncovering her eyes. I could start to see the white, or in this case, red of her eyes. Eventually, her face was completely exposed. Her eyes were puffed up, her face soaked, and her blond hair was, I’ll admit, a complete and utter mess. But she was somehow so beautiful. The redness was starting to clear. But I could tell that she was very unstable at the moment, and could start crying again at any moment. I looked directly into her eyes. “What’s up, Rarrian? How’s your day going?” Rarrian grew the weakest smile that one could manage. Of course, I wasn’t expecting a laugh from her, but that one smile was enough for me at the moment. She couldn’t hold the smile for long, which was completely understandable. I just couldn’t bear to see her wallow in pain for another second, but just as she looked like she was going to burst into a flood of tears again, she swiftly returned the embrace that I had around her for the past ten minutes. She made no attempt to prevent her tears, and instead buried her face into my chest. I tightened my grip on her body, and made sure that she was as secure as a mother bird protecting her young. “I’ve got you.” I patted her backside once again. I let her cry into my shirt for however long she needed. My priorities were without a doubt on comforting her, but to be frank, I just can’t express how great it felt to be in her arms mutually with her head nestled on my chest. I used to help Rarrian in the past, but never did we come anywhere close to this magnitude of emotion. It felt good to know that I was helping her. It felt good to give her comfort. It felt good to be a friend for her to go to for her problems. It felt good to know that she now trusts me despite a problem in her life. But, I’m not going to lie, it felt good for her to be embraced with me while letting her tears out into my chest. I was somehow able to count the tears that dampened my shirt. I guess when you are focused on an individual, every bit of the situation matters to you, and you remember things that you normally can’t remember, or just don’t pay attention to. After about five minutes of letting out her tears, at a grand total of 257 tears released into my shirt, (no doubt completely soaked from her crying) she lifted her head to look into my eyes. She smiled for a moment and said her first words after fifteen minutes of not talking; “T-thank you Belachrome.” Those three words touched a very soft part of me. As I said, it felt good to know that I was helping, but I had no confirmation from her, verbally. But I didn’t show it in my expression, because not only would it be overwhelming for her, but I needed to focus on her at the moment. “No problem, Rarrian. It was nothing, really.” She inhaled through her nose again. “Nothing? How could you possibly say such a thing? You put up with me, and my anger, and my stubbornness, and showed nothing more than compassion!” After the completion of her statement, she tightened her grip around me. I was quite surprised by this statement; Rarrian has never admitted her arrogance in the past, but at the same time, I wasn’t completely surprised. Either she was growing as a person, or this was just the right moment for her to reflect on her actions. “Alright, I’m glad you think so, but if that’s the case, I ask for a favour in return. What’s going on in your life right now?” Now was the time to get to the bottom of her problem. Rarrian’s smile faded. “Oh… right. I guess it’s only right that I tell you…” “Yes… go on.” She was very hesitant to say a word about it, clearly thinking about every detail and every possibility of what I would think of her and the issue, and probably even some girl things that I don’t even know about. But eventually, she sighed and began. “…For the past month, a group of guys in the school next door were inviting me to hangouts during lunch time and after school. They gave me lots of beautiful jewelry, and treated me like a true lady… or so I thought… they would also demand things from me, such as getting me to do things I didn’t want to do… I don’t want to talk about what I did…” “What did you do, Rarrian?” Everything I’ve said up to this point was calm and as friendly as humanly possible, but this question came out a little sharply. “Tell me what you did.” She grew a desperate look on her face, and almost looked like she wanted to cry again. “Please, Belachrome. Don’t make me. It’s completely unlike me.” “That’s why I want to know.” Rarrian started tearing up again, and that’s when I realized I was being a little bit harsh. I took a deep breath before making my next statement. “Listen, Rarrian, I’m not trying to force information from you that you don’t feel comfortable telling me about, but I need to know this if I want to help you. I mean, it’s not like I’m going to tell anyone. I swear to you that I will not say a word about this to anyone else.” Rarrian seemed to heed my words, and also seemed to gain the courage to tell me her shameful acts. “Alright, they asked me to be an accomplice in horrible schemes against younger kids, and stealing food from the cafeteria. I never directly got involved in the main scheme, of course, but they asked me to pick the locks of gates with my hairpins so they can get inside the playground and steal the little kids’ toys, or pick the locks of the cafeteria so they can take the food. They promised me rewards, but they never did. Their excuse was that the jewelry was the reward, and that it was enough of a reward for all schemes.” She closed her eyes with a sigh. “But it wasn’t at all. I figured out the hard way that it was stolen from one of the kids at their school. I happened to pass by the girl whom it belonged to. She saw my bracelet, and screamed at me that it was hers. I told her that a group of boys had given it to me as a gift, and that I could prove it. But when she asked them, they said that I stole it from her. They made up so many details about how I snuck into her locker. I wanted to argue with them, but I was just too shocked to say anything. The little girl ripped it off my wrist violently, not caring how much it hurt, and threatened that if she ever saw me again she would kill me. I didn’t mind since it was a little girl, but I was madder at the group of boys. I screamed at them and demanded answers as to why the hell they had done such a thing, but they just laughed at me, and commented that I sounded just like the little girl. They admitted proudly that they were never my friends, and that I was so dumb to have actually fallen for their feeble trick. They laughed, pushed me into the grass, and walked away.” “I felt so horrible afterwards. Despite my hatred for those guys… they had a point. It’s very difficult for me to admit such a thing, but… they did have a point. I was foolish to listen to them. And ever since then, I’ve been extremely cautious around other guys.” My mouth started gaping near the end of the story. Not only was I starting to understand what Rarrian has been going through, but I’ve also started to realize just how Rarrian was feeling when I asked her profusely what was going on in her life; insecure; her dark secret was getting chipped away at, attacked, slowly escaping the secure barrier of her mind. If I were in her position, I wouldn’t have dreamed of telling this to anyone, ever. I am absolutely amazed at how much information she volunteered, and with no struggle in between. Now I feel like an invader. I feel terrible. But I have to convince myself that this is the right thing… but it’s hard. But now it all makes sense. It’s no wonder she holds a grudge against guys. But now I’m ready to talk; “M-my God, Rarrian, I never knew… now it’s my turn to admit my faults; I can’t believe you co-operated with me at all in telling me all these things after pestering you about such a serious issue. I was only trying to help. I’d understand if you never wanted to speak to me again, but…” Rarrian looked up at me with utter shock and bewilderment. “Never want to speak to you again? Never want to speak to you again?!! Are you kidding? You’ve done nothing but try to help me, you’ve focused solely on me, my feelings, stayed calm, stayed friendly, no matter what crap I’ve given you, you hugged me through all of my nonstop tears, you let me use your chest to cry into, you said nothing but comforting words, you helped me find my courage, sworn to keep everything confidential… HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY THINK I WOULD NEVER WANT TO TALK TO YOU AGAIN???!!!” “You’re so silly, Belichrome!” she said as she lightly wacked me on the head. I was so disoriented. My mind was racing with hundreds of thoughts. All of them were revolving around the inside of my head, all shouting at once. There were so many things that were happening at the moment that just… couldn’t be happening. I’ve never had such a headache in my life. But despite the overload of thoughts, everything Rarrian had just said was jammed right in the center of them, never fading vividly, or emotionally. Rarrian kept repeating it in my head at perfect intervals between words, over the loud thoughts attempting to drown it out. It kept getting louder and louder, and I felt like I was going to pass out. But all of a sudden, my mind went completely blank of all of the thoughts twisting and turning. The first new thought entered my head with a realization; did Rarrian just make a joke about me? I felt inside that I was completely in the wrong throughout this entire half an hour, but that joke that she made… when she wacked me on the head… somehow gave me a feeling of authenticity… a lack of ability to argue with her. Well, if she thinks it’s okay… then she’s right! “Well I think you’re wrong!” Rarrian looked up at me. Wait, did that just come out of me right? “Yes, you heard me right, I think you’re wrong. I’m not silly at all; in fact, I think I’m an arrogant person who doesn’t listen when one’s trying to help them.” I thought she was going to get really mad when… I said that. But to my surprise, she took it in very good humor. “Oh, are you talking about me? At least I’m not one who tries to invade someone’s personal privacy!” We giggled over the jokes together. “Thank you so much Belachrome for taking this moment to help me get through this problem. You have no idea how much this means to me,” she said as she wrapped her arms around me again. “Oh, lay off of me, you little shit, you’ve gotten enough hugs from me today. I even gave you my own stomach as a tear pillow!” “It’s your fault I needed a tear pillow, you invading bastard! Learn to stay out of a girl’s life!” We glared into each other’s eyes intently, and profusely, until we finally shouted out in unison, “Fuck you!” We fell on the floor laughing… Rarrian and I continued to jokingly insult each other for the next ten minutes, and we were having so much fun! But to be honest… I wasn’t really coming up with the insults; in fact it almost felt like an instinct; my mind just selected different insults to say, and I just said it without thinking. If I were thinking in my real head, I wouldn’t have even thought to take this kind of approach towards Rarrian. I never had an insult relationship with her. In fact, whenever I did this kind of behavior with her, she would get offended… horribly. I tried to gain control of myself a few times, but I was just having so much fun, that my will power was failing me. I have never had so much fun with Rarrian in my life. But unfortunately, it didn’t last. As soon as the last minute had gone by, my Timex started beeping, and I knew exactly what that meant… “Uh… Rarrian, it’s 7:10. Class starts in five minutes. I think it’s best that we head over to first period right now.” Knowing Rarrian as well as I did, I thought she would be reluctant to leave, but like she had the entire rest of the morning, she surprised me yet again; “You’re right, let’s go.” I lifted myself up to my legs, and then helped Rarrian get up. There were no signs of tears in her eyes now, or on her face. In fact, she seemed happier than I felt at the moment. I usually try to get to class as fast as I can, despite the “no running in the halls” rule, but I didn’t do that today, because this time, I had a friend with me. We walked to class together, holding each other’s hand, I, standing to her left, and she, to my right. In the most emotional moment of my life so far, I have reached an entirely new level of connection with one of my friends. I was very unsure of myself as to whether I was being helpful or detrimental throughout those fourty-five minutes, but now, I’ve never been surer of anything. I helped someone get through a very hard time in their life, and I helped her regain her trust of the opposite sex, after losing it in a horrible incident. It feels good to be that kind of person. I said that nothing that Rarrian did would change any of my thoughts about her, but at an ultimate irony… I will never think of Rarrian, even minimally, the same way again…
  3. Okay guys, so since I've been around here for a long time, I've noticed a lack of variance in the Fan Music section of the forums. Most of the music I hear over there seems to sound the same. The reason I'm making this thread is to help you establish your ideas in a way that you can manipulate them and evolve them to a better work from what you have. You can post WIPs of what you have and I'll critique them. I could also set you up on a better path in your music creation. So have at it people! Let's see what you got!
  4. Paul Taylor, author and artist of the excellent web comic Wapsi Square is also a Brony and is active in support of brony causes. the most recent being 'Support Grayson' (see the above link) well he put a version of the illo up on ebay.. and I snagged it (dont ask how much)
  5. Hello, friends. If you weren't aware from my surprise for Harmonic Revelations yesterday, I've released a new extended play in dedication to her. From the Bandcamp page's description (which I wrote myself ;D ); "The OtarineTrax team has been busy working to release the new EP, "Harmonic"! This EP is a tribute to Harmonic Revelations, a great friend of the team. From Progressive House to Drumstep inspired tracks, this EP will not stay in any specific genres, but branches out to many different ones. The many variations of the lead single, 'Harmonic' will not tire you out, as every track has its own unique flair and style. Without a doubt, this EP promises not to disappoint! The usual OtarineTrax quality dance music is apparent here." I hope you enjoy the EP, and I truly do wish you a great 2014! I will leave you with the Youtube upload of the lead single, 'Harmonic'. The album's link is in the description, enjoy! Love, Otty~ <3
  6. While I don't like "Adventure Time" (or today's Cartoon Network; which as I've stated across my postings I see as an 'adult swim made for children') and keep myself away from it (and have seen that many bronies have the same thoughts), I actually find the original 'Random Cartoons' short interesting and much more enjoyable (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pm4BVX8eguw). While the CN series is ridden with "gateway language" (so-called that on "Common Sense Media") and other mature elements that are obviously designed to entrance Gen Y (much similar to 'The 90's are All That') and make the show look like something that came out of Adult Swim or G4 (and poorly toned down for children), the short made for Random Cartoons is virtually free of all that. The design and animation on the Random Cartoons short is also much more fitting than the CN series. It does make me wonder if the series would have been more like the original short (and not ridden with "gateway language") had it been picked up by Nickelodeon when they were given the chance. Feel free to share your thoughts.
  7. Something I came up with this afternoon. Spent way too little time on this, but I'm quite busy with exams, so I had to rush it. https://soundcloud.com/kaspars-l-dums/invaders-from-the-everfree
  8. So I have been re-re-watching the first season of MLP and I got to thinking about Twilight's living arrangements. I mean, she lives in a library, how cool is that?!?! Now, I work at two libraries and they're are nowhere near as home-y as the Ponyville library, and as I was thinking about how quaint and comfortable Twilight's home looked this tune just sprang into my head. I did my best to replicate it on my harp and here is the finished result (even if it is a bit short; I'll probably try to develop it a bit more [hey, I may even throw in a flute!])! This is my first pony-inspired composition so hope that you all enjoy! ....... So I guess either I bored all of you to death with my lack of rock/dubstep elements or else you all are just not used to seeing harp music around here....? (Just teasing of course)
  9. I really like the original show still. And considering its target audience is for young boys. Lol... why do I still like it? Watch some of the eps almost every weekend. And I still find it cool thay Tara Strong voices ben xD. Is there any other bronies out there that like the first generation of ben 10 preferably or any of the new ones?

  12. This right here, is my current OC that I call Poetic Inkwell. I made it quiet a while back, but now that I look at it. It feels like I could do better. I would like if possible for people to give me a few ideas, so here is a little brief summary of my OC's backstory that I have worked out myself. " Poetic Inkwell is a shy and quiet young stallion who grew up in the busy city of Manehattan. Ever since he was young and first attended school he wasn't always the greatest at speaking his mind. He needed help to get passed this block that has prevented him from making friends and speaking his mind. His teacher one day taught a lesson that ended up changing the young colts life, and that lesson was to write poetry. The shy and quiet stallion ended up enjoying the lesson that was taught to him, especially after his teacher ended up giving him the top grade in the class for the lesson. His teacher helped him, open up his heart and put his words and thoughts into various artistic ballads and poems so he could actually express himself without always needing to speak himself." That's the rough little jist of my OC's backstory, took me a little to write out and I admit it could be better due to all the various spelling errors and punctuation errors. I would love to get help with improving my OC from anywhere from changing its look, to improving his cutie mark design, to even improving in his backstory. All help is welcome, criticism it welcome no matter how harsh. So please somepony, if you don't mind, lend a fellow brony a hoof? (The reason I'm in such a mood to change my OC and get to work on making it better, is because I saw another person's OC that I literally fell in love with. That OC by the way would be Tiarawhy's, and don't worry I know what she is known for...I found her OC when I was fooling around on the MLP Fan Labor wiki. Just incase your wondering.)
  13. Okay, I just made this OC, and I need help coming up with a name for her. All I can offer you is her design, and that she has a talent in songwriting. Picture: EDIT: I have decided to use the name, Crystal Clear, which was suggested by
  14. https://soundcloud.com/kaz-michael-smith/celestial-original http://youtu.be/Wcy_LK3gs-I UPDATED LINK, NEW RECORDING ^ I finally got around to recording this with my new microphone and I'm super pleased with how it turned out. I put the lyrics in a different thread but will include them here. I thought this needed a new topic as this is now the complete version (": (If a mod reads this, please delete or close the old topic) Here's the album artwork: Verse: Late-bloom, Afternoon, Small fright, Midnight. Early, Morning, Eye's closed, Yawning. The suuu-uuun is making its way, Dancing in the sky, And Luna-aahh is sound asleep, To let her sister shine. Pre-Chorus: But we all shine Chorus: We will be Celestial-aall, And we'll raise the sun for all, Cause we will bring the moon down to these parts, And eclipse the hate that's in those hearts, And we will be Celestial-aall, We raise our heads and stand up tall, Celestial-aall, Ooh-ooh-ooooh-oh-oh-oh Verse: Only, They see, I'm alone, No home. Boldy, Bravely, Closely, They speak. A ra-aainbow is arching up there, Dashed against the sky, And the twilight is on it's way, To bring back the night. Pre-Chorus: But we'll still shine Chorus: We will be Celestial-aall, And we'll raise the sun for all, Cause we will bring the moon down to these parts, And eclipse the hate that's in those hearts, And we will be Celestial-aall, We raise our heads and stand up tall, Celestial-aall, Ooh-ooh-ooooh-oh-oh-oh Bridge: We all shine, We all shine, We all shine, We all shine, We all shine, We all shine, We all shine, Shine (hold).

  15. Hey! I wrote a song because I really wanted to create something that reflected the way I felt and my thoughts about MLP. I didn't just want to cram MLP references into the song and I tried to do it as subtly as possible! I'd love to get critique as what I've received in the past has been super helpful (: Verse: Late-bloom, Afternoon, Small fright, Midnight. Early, Morning, Eye's closed, Yawning.

  16. This is a work in progress. I was in an airplane and when I imagined pegesi going on their first successful flight, I came up with this orchestral... I want to add more but that will come later. Things I am not comfortable with/ not good ATM Intro: too punchy and loud. Not good enough. Viola solo: just a copy and paste. Should add something else Flute part: maybe something else with the harp Constructive criticism appreciated! Many thanks!

  17. Synths were recorded from my AX60, essentially a progressive house/experimental/sort of moombahton track I created about Pinka. I hope you all enjoy it.
  18. Hey, everypony! I had finished another track inspired by MLP atmospere. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpLKzje_Mn0 In this track I tried to create an atmosphere of dusk Ponyville. Hope, it turned out well! Pleasant listening:)
  19. i heard this song just when i was about to wake up a few days ago. last night, i went back and... actually finished it up and it sounds decent? yep! http://www.mediafire.com/listen/xfqb59ysca88w0z/Unconceivable_Limits_%28SGM_Edit%29.wav you can listen to the song within the link. anyway, this song is basically meant to be "final dungeon" music in some hi-tech lab in some RPG. i recall it being very white. i really liked how it turned out!
  20. Disclaimer: While I consider my self overall a beginning writer, I know how to spot originality when I see it even if I'm not being original myself. The following is what I consider original on a personal level. Anyway, I've noticed on Fimfiction and Equestria daily that the three most popular genres of pony fiction are human stories, crossovers and shipping. However, a lot of the stories within each genre are one the same. Here's how to shake up the formula in these types of stories. Sorry if it's long. NUMBER 1: HUMAN STORIES! *Now my main gripe in these stories is that the human just ends up in Equestria most of the time for death. That is annoying. Equestria is not an afterlife and while fiction is fiction, ending up in Equestria or a lighting storm through death is immersion breaking. For example, have the humans go to Equestria through a teleporter or in my case, a transport ship. Any of these are a better excuse than just dying and ending up there. *Another thing that gets on my nerves is how the human just accepts everything. Seriously, if you went to a world where english speaking mythical creature's exist, wouldn't you be freaking out? Also, why should a human just accept everything the Mane 6 tells them, shouldn't they point out how illogical a lot of things are in Equestria? Don't make your human an ideological push over. Create some conflict. Finally if the Mane 6 are told that their life is a show, they should be freaking out as well. In my story, my human OCs are not accepting everything at all. They are aware that the planet isn't right and aren't going to accept magic for an answer and drop the subject easily. Good humans should have a desire to inquire or else they're lazy. *Finally, make your humans diverse. Enough with the 20 year old guy ends up in Equestria. Go for something like firefighter, politician, teacher, or doctor in Equestria and play off their professions. I am writing a 'soldier in Equestria fic' but they're not bland. They can go from dark and violent, to arrogant and cheeky fast. Furthermore, soldiers aren't stupid, they can question things as well. HUMANS ARE NOT LIMITED TO ONE PERSONALITY TRAIT! NUMBER 2: SHIPPING Okay I'll admit, it is not such much as how the story goes as much as it's the pairing. Bronies seem to be obsessed with the same pairing all the time. Now you can just tell me to ignore shipping but here's the thing, many bronies like myself enjoy romance, but we don't want OctaScratch, AppleDash, RariJack, and TwiDash shoved down our throats everytime as our only option. This also reminds me that bronies will accept a pairing only if it's angry love. Seriously, look at the 4 previous shippings I listed. Most stroreis about them involve the mares yelling at each other, realizing they like each other for some reason and make love. THE END. No offense, but just because ponies argue, doesn't mean they're in love. Furthermore, just because two mares are close, doesn't mean they love each other unless they were lesbians and the idea of a world filled with homosexuals seems laughable. Being gay or lesbian is not a choice you can make regardless of species. You're born that way and just because a town is mature enough to accept your biology doesn't mean the entire town shares your sexual orientation the same way it doesn't share your hair color. Stop making ponies "go" gay in your fics unless it was their biological condition from the start. (sorry for the rant) For alternate pairings that would make you stand out try: Pinkie with Vinyl Scratch or Neon Lights or some combination with the three. Not because they were together in the "Pony Rock" song but because they're party ponies anyway. Try Rainbow Dash with Spitfire or Soarin or Soarin with Spitfire. Despite the fact that all 3 love flying and have the same destiny, no one seems to write stories about Wonderbolt shipping. Lyra with Dr Whooves. You could write a story about Lyra bugging the the Dr. due his supposed past as a human. There haven't been stories like that. Try Rarity with either Octavia or Frederic considering that they enjoyed the fancy lifestyle. Octavia and Frederic are in the same band anyway. Try Applejack with Caramel since they're farm ponies. Apples and Caramel go well together in real life anyway. Or try Applejack times Soarin because we all know what Soarin loves to eat. Try Derpy with Screwball because they're both clumsy. There seems to be no following with them. NUMBER 3: CROSSOVERS! (Video Games) This time it is a matter of what you crossover. For example, I love Halo A LOT, but too many bronies keep writing Halo fics and they're very monotonus. Master Chief crashes into Equestria on the Forward Unto Dawn and the Covenant invade. Yawn. There are also way too many Mass Effect and Warhammer 40K crossovers. I get that you like them, I love them, but they loose meaning. Also do NOT try to crossover a military shooter in Equestria because the characters are bland. (Although there are some exceptions like Spec Ops the Line fics dealing with insanity). Furthermore, do NOT ponify. It ruins the immersion and the characters have to go through a period to convince everypony that they are not from Equestria. When we think of our favourite characters, we imagine them as the species they are, not as ponies. However, if it is a ponfied version of a story like Fallout Equestria, then it is fine. For crossovers to consider I recommend: Watch Dogs: Aiden ends up in Equestria through hacking a machine or something and must survive in a world with no tech. Destiny: The humans from the game are from a world with both magic and advanced technology it would be interesting and the humans have plenty of reason to visit Equestria. A humanized Red Dead Redemption with John Marston in Appaloosa encountering the Apple Family. It could create a great southern fic. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon: The Main character ends up in Equestria and annoys everypony with his 80's action hero ways. Hope this gives you ideas. Sorry if it was long.
  21. It is 8:37 PM. The sun is setting. You find yourself lying in an amusement tent of sorts, unarmed. You don't know how you got here, or why you'd be here. There is a joke hidden somewhere, and it's anything but a practical one. As you stand up, you feel the wind blowing... or perhaps someone's breath? Welcome, to the Jester's Tent.
  22. Well, I was without Internet for a while tonight/this morning, and I decided to make myself an Original Character that fits my name here on the Internet. Yes, the pose is the standard 2D look, but that's for a reason I'll state below the picture. Now, the reasons for the 2D look are: 1) I still suck at drawing/pony anatomy 2) I do YouTube and upload video gameplays to it. I recently hit 100 subscribers, so I thought I'd change my icon in celebration ^-^ This topic isn't me requesting something and that's it. No, I would've posted this picture here in the first place (as well as on my deviantART). I'm just trying to see if I can "kill two birds with one stone" and find out if anyone is willing to make me an icon with this OC. If you are interested in doing so, you can PM me and we'll talk more about it there. If you're not interested and just wanted to see the picture, I hope coming here to see the drawing was worth your time
  23. I've had this OC done for a while now, but I haven't posted her as of late. Sadly, this also means I had time to completely reinvent my art style. Whatever. She has spider bite piercings and an assortment of different gauges on the other side of her face. The band around her tail is typically used to adorn her hoof alongside the other. Her hair is black and green with soft blue streaks. NOTE: The tip of her tail is NOT blue If you would like to draw her on your own time, that would be nice. However, that was not the purpose of this thread.
  24. Now then, I have a total of 6 main OCs (cheesy). However, two of them haven't been completed entirely yet, so I need a bit of help with color scheme and the like when it comes to them. Please tell me which one you are responding to with suggestions (1 or 2). First OC - I don't know what species to make her yet, and I can't seem to think of anything interesting. I might just make her a classical unicorn or even an earth pony. Anywho, she's a very quiet person, who tends to only speak when she has something important to say. However, when she does talk, she always speaks her mind. I don't entirely know what I want her talent/cutiemark to be, but I know I want it to have something to do with some form of fighting technique (mma). She's incredibly intelligent and great with words, but can be a bit blunt when it comes to her emotions or opinions. She's not driven to anger easily, but she despises arrogance. She refuses to embrace any specific career (so she is never seen working), but can be bought as a cutthroat or assassin on occasion. She is often seen wearing a mask (masquerade, etc) because she doesn't believe herself to be beautiful due to a large scar running along her right cheek. She also hates formal events. Second OC - Originally I was going to make her a dragon-pony, but I see no use in it anymore since I've created my own species (and I've adjusted her personality). I'll probably make her an earth pony or something of that sort. Anyways, she's a musical pony, but I haven't decided what instrument to give her yet (flute or violin?). When she believes she's alone, she has a tendency to sing, though she would never sing in public. She likes to experiment musically with her instruments in unconventional ways. Particularly, using her own classical and combining it with other genres. She doesn't like any attention from the male gender (due to stuff that happened in her past), so she has difficulties making friends with stallions. If they seem a bit overly-complicated, it's because they're designed for roleplay and writing purposes (I write grimdark and other genres). Neither of them have a completed cutiemark, neither of them have a name, and neither of them have a definite color scheme.
  25. Hey everypony! I'm working on a new species (think changelings and torch hounds), but I need some help working out the kinks and developing the species. I want something unique, but I'm having some trouble coming up with ideas. So, instead of telling you all what I've got currently, I'm just going to let you all post random suggestions. In fact, let's make a competition out of it! You can enter as many suggestions as you like, and for every suggestion that I decide to use, you will receive one free request, using the style that I've developed for commissions and have yet to debut. Species I need help with: 1 MLP Species (because I'm only making one species for MLP, I will be more picky with the suggestions I accept) Species designed for my Website (based off of an assortment of different animals) Species designed for my book and art series, "The Viathyn Chronicles" (think modified fantasy creatures, like werewolves or fairies) Okay, I know this is some weird format for a competition, but whatever. FORMAT: Username: Suggestion(s): Request: Request Reference: You will be notified if I accept your suggestion. ALSO ACCEPTING SPECIES NAMES AS SUGGESTIONS I know all of this seems odd, but I truly do need the help, and this is the most interesting way I can ask.
