  1. Hi everyone ^^ Today, as a result of a stream I did this afternoon, I did a Princess Luna fanart It has a quite dark atmosphere . I hope you'll like it
  2. Note from the author: This story is based on a roleplay I was (and still am) involved in, which in turn is based on this cartoon series: https://www.deviantart.com/doublewbrothers/art/Luna-Land-Episode-0-5-671611917 Only the first three need to be read to gain an idea of the universe this story exists in. The story revolves around two characters from that roleplay, Cirrus Wisp (female pegasus, light brown in color, slightly darker mane and tail) and Flapper (griffon female, light gray with white accents, brown tail tuft), along with Longhaul, my main character. This will be a 3-part story, with the first part going up soon. The second and third parts will be up as soon as they are finished. This story will contain some coarse language (nothing excessive, and most likely nothing you haven't already heard), and some descriptions of the aftermath of violent acts. If any of this bothers you, stop reading now and go read another fanfic, this one isn't for you. Posted with the encouragement of (and a swift kick in the posterior from) @Alexshy.
  3. NOTE: This story is not intended to be canon to the Equestria Girls series in any way. Please read with discretion. Sunset slowly got out of her car and walked toward her partially destroyed school. Half of the auditorium had been reduced to nothing but burning green ashes. Atop the ashes were the geodes belonging to Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Pinkie Pie. Sky Scraper was trying to comfort Fluttershy, while Twilight was being consoled by her boyfriend, Sherbert Music-Guard. Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle were hugging each other and crying loudly. Several other students also appeared to be traumatized by what had just happened. Sunset kneeled before what used to be the auditorium and let the tears flow down her cheeks. She felt nothing but extreme guilt, sadness and rage. The next morning, Principal Celestia stood at a podium in front of the mass of green ashes. Portraits of the students who had perished in the explosion were hanging on the walls. Principal Celestia began her speech. “Fifteen students were killed at the Fall Formal last night when the auditorium was blown up by an unknown attacker. Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Flash Sentry, Scootaloo, Sweetie Drops, Roseluck, Octavia Melody, Bulk Biceps, Sandalwood, Snips, Snails, Norman, Pixel Pizzaz and Indigo Wreath will be remembered fondly by all of us. They were amazing students and people, and were truly a credit to our school. Let us have a minute’s silence in their honor.” For the next minute, Sunset, Twilight, Fluttershy, Sky Scraper, Sherbert Music-Guard, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, Maud Pie, Lyra Heartstrings, Vinyl Scratch, Photo Finish, Violet Blurr and the rest of the CHS students, along with many grieving families, remained solemnly silent. Then Vice Principal Luna stepped up to the podium. “It has been brought to our attention by Sunset Shimmer that this heartless attack was most likely carried out by Adagio Dazzle, a former student here at Canterlot High.” said Luna. “As a result, school will be canceled today. We think it would be best for you all to stay home, given the circumstances.” Fluttershy put a hand on Sunset’s shoulder. “Sunset, you did your best. There was nothing more that could have been asked of you.” Sunset sighed. “I know, but I can’t help but feel somewhat guilty for this. I just can’t believe Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Pinkie Pie are gone.” “I know. I feel just as horrible as you do.” said Twilight. “I have a sinking feeling things can only get worse from now on.” Canterlot, a normally happy town, suddenly seemed gray and dull. Lyra missed her best friend and girlfriend very badly, and remembered all the fun times they’d had together. Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle promised themselves that they would never forget Scootaloo, and Sweetie Belle also pined for her big sister. Photo Finish and Violet Blurr felt empty without Pixel Pizzaz alongside them. Vinyl grieved for her best friend Octavia. Even Maud Pie was overcome by her emotions when remembering Pinkie. Sonata was horrified and immensely saddened by the atrocity her sister had committed. But no one was more miserable than Sunset. First she had vowed to avenge Applejack. Now she was determined to avenge Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Pinkie Pie and the others who’d lost their lives. “Well, Adagio, I hope you’re happy.” snapped Aria. “Why wouldn’t I be?” Adagio snickered. “I got my revenge. Canterlot High School has crumbled, and those Rainbooms are gone for good.” Aria finally lost it. “First of all, you only got half of them!” she shouted. “The remaining three are looking for you right now. And second, you killed twelve innocents! I thought you wanted to get rid of the Rainbooms, not murder innocent people just for the fun of it! You know what, I’m done following you around. I’m calling the police, and they’re going to destroy that fucking stupid stone and put an end to you once and for all!” Adagio grinned. She pulled the Incineration Stone out of her pocket, and pointed it straight at Aria. Sunset slowly walked through the downtown area, guilt still hanging over her head. In the distance, she could see Fluttershy and Twilight standing together, looking shocked. Sunset immediately ran up. “What is it?!” she asked, worried for her friends. “O — over there!” Fluttershy pointed to her right. Sunset looked and saw Sky and Sherbert kneeling before a small pile of green ash. Sky walked back to the girls. “It’s that purple siren girl, Aria Blaze. She got incinerated.” “Probably by Adagio to cover her tracks!” said Sunset. “Does anyone know where she went after killing Aria?” “A think she went that wey.” said Sherbert, pointing north. “That’d be taeward Heichwey Nineteh-five.” “Okay, then.” Sunset turned to Fluttershy and Twilight. “Are you girls up for going after her?” “If it means avenging our friends, then yes!” said Twilight firmly. Fluttershy nodded in agreement. Fluttershy’s and Twilight’s boyfriends hugged and kissed them goodbye and wished them luck. Then the three girls hurried back to Sunset’s house, got into her car, and raced off toward the highway. The girls listened to music as they sped towards the highway. But as they merged onto Highway 95, the music stopped. Moments later came the voice of a news reporter. “This just in.” the reporter announced. “There has just been a bombing at Camp Everfree. The camp’s counselors, Timber Spruce and Gloriosa Daisy, were both killed, and the perpetrator of this attack, a teenage girl named Adagio Dazzle, is believed to now be approaching Manebridge. We will elaborate on this story when we have more details.” “Holy shit, Manebridge is almost at the northern border!” cried Twilight. “We won't get there before dusk!” “We can if we take Highway 3.” Sunset replied with a smile. “You’re right!” said Twilight. “Why didn’t I think of that?” At the exit to Highway 3, Sunset swerved onto the northbound ramp. “Speaking of which, why would Adagio go after Camp Everfree of all places?” Fluttershy asked. “I saw her in the forest that night.” said Sunset. “Maybe Timber or Gloriosa saw her and she wants to destroy any places that could connect her to the explosion at the school. In any event, we’re onto her and if we keep going to exit 47, we’ll be in Manebridge before dusk!” As Sunset, Twilight and Fluttershy approached exit 47, the first exit for Manebridge, a loud explosion sounded out. “Shit!” Fluttershy exclaimed. “Did you girls feel that?” “Yes.” said Sunset. “Adagio is close by.” As Sunset was exiting the highway, Adagio finally stopped her car at a local diner. She went in, ordered a sandwich, and sat down in the back of the building. As she ate her dinner, she thought to herself, This is ridiculous. How could my plan have backfired so badly? Adagio finished the sandwich and walked out of the diner. But just as she pulled the Incineration Stone out of her pocket and aimed it at the diner, Sunset, Twilight and Fluttershy arrived on the scene. Sunset ran into the diner. “Everyone get out! This place is about to be blown up!” Like magic, everyone poured out of the diner. Adagio turned to face the three girls, pointing the stone at them. “Well, I guess it’s time to say goodbye to you three. Thank you very much for ruining my plans.” Sunset ran forward. “Oh no, it isn’t! Just for you — and me!!!” Sunset tackled Adagio and slammed her through the door. The Incineration Stone went flying through the air. “What?!? NO!!!” Adagio cried. The stone fired off one last time, and the entire diner was destroyed by a massive green explosion. “SUNSET, NO!!!” Twilight and Fluttershy cried out. They both sagged to the ground and burst into tears, just as Sonata, Lyra and Wallflower Blush arrived. Sonata was visibly very upset. “I’m so sorry.” she said. “I — I was too late.” “Sunset’s a hero.” said Wallflower through tears. “Yep.” Lyra agreed. “She killed the murderer herself.” “I — I can’t believe it!” Twilight whimpered. “Now Fluttershy and I are the… only ones left.” “I wouldn’t say that.” said Wallflower thoughtfully. “You’ve still got us. You Rainbooms have taught me so much about friendship, and helped me to open up.” “Sunset believed me when no one else would.” said Sonata. “I tried warning others about Adagio, but they all ignored me because they assumed I was still on her side.” “You avenged your best friends, and mine.” said Lyra. “We’ll help you through this. It’s the least we can do.” Years later, a large portrait would stand in the main hallway of Canterlot High. It depicts Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Applejack during their band’s, and the town’s, heyday. Below it, the plaque reads, “The Rainbooms — Six Brave, Strong and Kind Girls Who Discovered Friendship Few Ever Know”. Right next to it stands another portrait. It is of Sunset Shimmer, and its plaque reads, “Sunset Shimmer, the Heroine of Canterlot”.
  4. NOTE: This story is not intended to be canon to the Equestria Girls series in any way. Please read with discretion. “First and foremost, I’m so sorry about Applejack.” said Princess Twilight as she and Sunset, who was now in her pony form, entered the Canterlot library. “It’s all right, Twilight.” Sunset replied. “I just need to find out what killed her. I know her death wasn’t natural, and I’m going to get to the bottom of it.” “You’re correct in saying it wasn’t natural.” said Princess Twilight gravely. “That green fireball was definitely Equestrian magic. And I’m pretty sure I know where it came from.” Princess Twilight led Sunset to a shelf near the back of the library. The purple alicorn scanned the shelves until she found the thick black book that she was looking for. The cover read, “The Equestrian Encyclopedia of Weapons and Tools of Destruction”. “Okay, that title doesn’t sound good.” Sunset remarked. Twilight flipped through the encyclopedia until she reached the letter I. On that page was an illustration of a round stone with a giant X scratched into it. “The Incineration Stone.” Twilight explained. “Long ago, an evil and mentally disturbed unicorn used this stone to terrorize various communities in Western Equestria. The green fireballs that this stone emitted decimated entire towns and killed close to five hundred ponies. This unicorn was so powerful that it took five great sorcerers, led by Starswirl the Bearded, to defeat him in battle. The evil unicorn was ultimately killed, and Starswirl took the stone and hid it somewhere far away. But Starswirl never said where, and its fate remains unknown.” Sunset gasped. “That stone must have ended up in my world!” “Most likely, yes. That’s the only logical explanation.” Twilight replied. “And someone found it and used it to kill Applejack!” Sunset exclaimed. “But who? I’d better get back to my world. This is big, really big!” When Sunset returned to the human world, it was getting dark. The clock in front of the town hall declared that it was nearly ten o’ clock. Sunset figured she had better get some sleep, so she hurried home, changed into her pajamas, and crashed on her bed. She stayed awake for some time, pondering what Princess Twilight had told her, but eventually she drifted off and fell asleep. Adagio Dazzle crouched in the bushes near Sweet Apple Acres, making sure she wasn’t seen. Aria Blaze and Sonata Dusk crouched right beside her. “Well, girls, we’re finally back in this piece of shit town.” she said to her sisters. “Now to get our revenge and assert our superiority once and for all!” “But how?” Sonata asked, confused. “Our pendants were destroyed, like, a long time ago.” Aria sighed. “Just shut the fuck up for once in your life, Sonata.” From her pocket, Adagio pulled out a stone with a giant X scratched into it. “This.” she said. “This stone shoots out green fire that can destroy anyone and anything. With it, I’ll devastate this town, and we three will take over.” Just then, Applejack came into view, driving home in her jalopy. Adagio sneered. “Well, well, well. It looks like we have our first victim. Goodbye, Applejack.” She held the stone, took aim, and fired. “Oh God, not them!!!” Sunset jolted awake, very disturbed and angered by the dream she’d just had. She would get no more sleep that night, and the next day she told her friends about the Incineration Stone, and the dream. “Oh, goodness!” Fluttershy remarked. “You don’t think the Dazzlings are back, do you?” “It could just be a nightmare.” said Sunset thoughtfully. “On the other hand, my empathy power could be starting to manifest itself in my dreams as well.” “Then what are we waiting for?” Rainbow Dash exclaimed. “Let’s find the Dazzlings or whoever has this thing and bring them to justice!” “That’s easier said than done.” Sunset replied. “Literally anyone could be a suspect, not just those three.” “Well then, I suppose we’ll just have to question everyone.” said Rarity. And that’s just what they did. For the last week of summer until school started, the six girls questioned various people in the town. But everyone’s response was the same — they were sorry about what happened to Applejack, but had no clues to this mystery. The girls also kept an eye out for the Dazzlings, but never saw them. All this caused Sunset to lose sleep, and once the school year started, that impacted her grades as well. She stayed up later and later trying to catch up on missed assignments. Her friends helped her, but that didn’t reduce the amount of stress that was piling on Sunset. One Thursday night, Sunset was still lying awake in bed at two in the morning. She was feeling restless, so she decided to go for a walk around town. She didn’t bother to change out of her pajamas, merely throwing on a jacket. The night air did manage to clear her head somewhat, and she made it all the way to the outskirts of Canterlot. She reached the edge of the forest and was just about to head home when she heard an all-too-familiar voice behind her. She turned to see three girls standing in the forest. Just from the shape of their hair, she knew who they were: Adagio, Aria and Sonata. “It’s been nearly a month since Applejack’s, hmm… unfortunate death.” Adagio whispered slowly. “What are you, gonna launch another attack already?” Aria growled. “Not yet.” Adagio replied. “I haven’t decided when or how I’m going to take out the rest of those girls. I say we leave this town now, and return when the time is right.” “Fine.” Aria sighed. She and Adagio turned and headed further into the forest. Sonata, who had remained silent the whole time, waited a moment before following her sisters. Sunset was horrified at what she’d just heard. Her nightmare had to have been true! She hurried back home and crashed down on her bed. Once again, she didn’t fall asleep, but she was too terrified of what could happen to her and her friends to be tired. When she and her friends met up at school the following morning, she hurriedly told them what she had seen. Fluttershy promptly went into full panic mode and had to be calmed down by Rainbow Dash, and the other three were extremely shocked as well. “Oh, shit!” Twilight cried. “What are we gonna do?” “I don’t know.” said Sunset. “But we need to keep an eye out for them. If you see one of them, let me know and we’ll figure something out.” Sunset’s five friends solemnly agreed. Over the next couple of weeks, things gradually returned to normal in Canterlot, and before long, it was time for the Fall Formal. That night, the girls were getting ready at Rarity’s house. Rarity had made five gorgeous dresses for herself, Twilight, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie, and they were all very excited for the dance. Fluttershy was especially excited about going with her boyfriend, Sky Scraper. Sunset, however, had decided not to attend this year, as she was still feeling a bit put out. “Darling, are you sure you don’t want to go?” asked Rarity. “I made a fabulous dress for you too.” “That’s okay.” Sunset replied. “I just don’t feel like it.” “Well then, I… guess we’ll be off.” said Twilight. “Bye, Sunset.” She and the other girls piled into a limousine parked outside, and they set off for the school. Shortly after her friends left, Sunset was getting ready to go home when the doorbell suddenly started ringing furiously. Sunset opened it and saw Sonata Dusk looking terrified. “What the hell are YOU doing here!?!” Sunset cried out. “I bet you're trying to kill me!?!” “No, no, no!!!” Sonata shouted. “I’m trying to stop Adagio!” “Wait, what?” Sonata sighed. “Adagio ditched me and Aria. I don’t know where Aria’s gone off to, but Adagio’s about to blow up your school with this magic fire stone that she found! She’s on her way over there right now! I tried to talk her out of it, but she threatened to kill me if I got in her way again!” “Holy shit, we have to get there before she does!” Sunset exclaimed. “Get into my car, we’ll stop her!” Sunset and Sonata climbed into Sunset’s car, and they sped off as fast as they possibly could. Meanwhile, Twilight, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Pinkie Pie entered the school, followed by Fluttershy and Sky Scraper holding hands. Multiple other students were heading into the auditorium as well. Adagio was approaching the school, the Incineration Stone in her right hand. “Just another minute or so, and my revenge will be completed!” she cackled to herself. Sunset’s car screeched like a bat out of hell toward the school. She was going about 80 miles an hour, and Sonata was terrified that they would crash, but Sunset continued to accelerate. As the last of the students filed into the auditorium, Adagio reached the school. She pointed the stone at the auditorium, and a green glow emerged from it. Twilight, Fluttershy and Sky Scraper were a safe distance away. Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Pinkie Pie weren’t so lucky. Sunset could see the school in the distance when an entire part of it was turned into a massive green explosion that shook the entire town. Her face went pale and she lifted her foot off the gas. She slumped in the driver’s seat and burst into tears. “NO!!! GOD, NO!!!”
  5. After almost a year of procrastination, I am finally ready to release the first chapter to my fanfic, Solitary Twilight. A new day had just begun in the village of Ponyville. As the sun emerged over the horizon, rays of light turned the black night into orange morning. The air was moist and warm, with a gentle breeze to accompany it. The quite village began to awaken from last night’s slumber as residents slowly emerged from their houses. Among those returning to the realm of the awakening, was a purple unicorn mare who lived inside a tree library in the middle of Ponyville named Twilight Sparkle. Twilight was giving an unpleasant sting that immediately jolted her awake. Her head ached and her neck was stiff due to being keep in an awkward position last night. Twilight groaned. She wanted to go back to sleep but the morning light kept bombarding her eyelids with a never ending stream of light despite having slept like a foal last night, Twilight felt like she just napped for little more than an hour. Her head throbbed, like she had been clubbed repeatedly. As her senses returned to her, Twilight gave in to the illuminated sting and opened her eyes to find herself in her bedroom. Her sheets were mangled in a twisted fashion and were dampened with sweat. She was greeted by a dusty wood-like smell that she had grown accustomed to since she first arrived in ponyville. Her bedroom was coated the rising sun’s pink and orange hue that warmed Twilight, almost as if it were comforting her from last night’s ordeal. Still, her headache plagued her like a splinter in her mind that just refused to stop poking her, and the sun refused to let her sleep in any further. Twilight dragged herself out of bed and fumbled downstairs as she tried to regain her balance. The pain in her stiff neck began to get much worse. As she made her way down to the kitchen, her body aches began to depart from her with every step. When Twilight made her way down to the kitchen, she immediately noticed that Spike, her assistant baby dragon was nowhere to be seen. “Spike?” Twilight called out, but there was no reply “Where is he?” Twilight said irritably. “If he’s sleeping in, I swear to Celestia I don’t know what I’ll do!” Twilight said with a growling tone. She went over to his bed, only to find it empty. Twilight became confused and impatient with hunger. As her stomach became racked with hunger, Twilight clumsily stepped back into the kitchen when she noticed a hastily written note under her coffee pot. Twilight, We were out of breakfast items. So I’m going to the market to grab a few things. I’ll be back in a bit. Spike. Reading those words gave Twilight warm feelings of affection and washed away her irritation. “Well at least the coffee is ready.” Twilight thought. “Maybe a little caffeine will help me wake up and get rid of this darn headache!” She said as she poured some coffee into a mug. The sweet roasted aroma and warm steam lifted her senses and revived her from the weighted sleepiness that was dragging her down. As she began to take her first sip, she noticed a newspaper article on the counter a few inches from the coffee pot. She looked at it and saw the bold headline; MAGIC DOLL CAUSES RAMPAGE AND DESTRUCTION! It was about the events that had occurred last night, when Twilight had needed to get a friendship letter to Princess Celestia. But since there was no friendship problem for her to solve, she decided to make one by making almost everyone in Ponyville mindlessly in love with her smartypants doll with a “Want-It-Need-It” spell, which backfired and caused many ponies to be injured and property to be destroyed. Despite her reckless actions, Princess Celestia had forgiven Twilight and had lightened the conditions of when to send her a friendship letter. Feelings of shame returned to her as she recalled yesterday’s events, but she soon shrugged it off. “Well it could have been worse.” Twilight said with relief as she proceeded to throw the newspaper in the trash can. As she continued to drink her coffee, she looked up at her clock, which stated 8:46 AM. She had plenty of time to enjoy her coffee before it was time to write down and plan today’s schedule. She had forgotten to do it last night because she was stressed out and tired from yesterday’s events. As Twilight thought about what she needed to do and accomplish today, she began to pace back and forth like she normally did. As she finished her coffee, the incessant headache began to disappear and she was able to think a lot more clearly. As Twilight began to completely free herself from sleep inertia, she felt that despite yesterday’s events, things were going to be alright. Twilight began to feel buoyant with optimism with thoughts of joy. She felt like bouncing around like Pinkie Pie. Twilight sat down at her desk, levitated a quill and parchment towards her and began to write down what she was going to do today. She planned to help Applejack on the farm, have lunch at Sugercube Corner with Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, and help Rarity out at her boutique with a few of her designs. Her thoughts were only interrupted by the loud growls of her stomach. By now, Twilight’s hunger was starting to get really out of control. She wondered when Spike would be back with those groceries he said he was getting. Twilight began to get impatient. “Where is that dragon?” She thought. “ He should have been back by now.” She then started to worry. “What if he’s having a hard time deciding what to buy?” She thought. “I should probably go out and find him.” She said. “Besides, he may not have brought enough bits to pay for the break-“ Twilight was interrupted and spooked by the sound of a teleportation spell. “Hello!” She called out. “W-who’s there?” She stuttered Twilight glanced all over her library to see who had teleported into her humble abode. She saw a tall mass concealed by shadow in a corner. “Reveal yourself!” she shouted. The mass then came forward to reveal a tall white alicorn with huge wings and dressed in regalia. It was none other than her mentor, Princess Celestia. Twilight, who had gotten out of bed not to long ago was shocked. She had not been expecting Celestia “Princess!?!” Twilight said in a surprised tone. “What are you doing here?” She asked. Celestia said nothing, but instead turned her head as her facial expression went from blank, to one of regret and sorrow. Her pupils dilated as a tear began to trickle down her eyes. “Princess, whats wrong? Did something happen?” Twilight said out of curiosity. “Forgive me Twilight, my star pupil.” Celestia said in a saddened tone. Twilight immediately felt a force tackle her to the ground and pinned her to the ground. She let out a shriek as she saw a pair of shackles were placed on her hooves. Twilight tried to fight back, she was powerless as she felt her horn being wrapped in a cold, heavy like material that was followed by a ring like object that made a loud click and secured the horn cover. “PRINCESS, PLEASE HELP ME!!!” Twilight screamed. But her mentor just stood there and watched her student squirm as hoofcuffs were levitated and latched onto Twilight’s front hooves. The force that had tackled her to the ground and pinned, lifted from her, as a dark coated stallion, clad in dark grey armor that covered its face stepped in to view and stood by Celestia. “What’s happening!?!” Twilight cried. “What are you doing princess!?!” There was a short pause before Celestia replied in a stark tone of voice. “I’m sorry Twilight, but I have to put you under arrest.” Twilight was dumbfounded. She began to panic. “W-what? Why!?!” She replied hotly. “ I am arresting you for the crimes that you have committed yesterday.” Celestia replied. “B-but you forgave me for that yesterday Princess!” Twilight replied with confusion. “You said yesterday that you would forget my punishment if I se-“ “Somepony suffered a fatal injury and died in the hospital last night Twilight.” Celestia interrupted in a voice of intimidation. Twilight immediately froze. “S-some…p-pony d-died?” Twilight stuttered. The feelings of happiness that she had moments ago were extinguished like a candle light. Her heart began to race, as thoughts of guilt and fear began to take hold of her mind. “Yes Twilight.” Celestia said in an increasingly adamant tone.” Somepony suffered a puncture to the heart and died of internal bleeding.” She continued, “And that is considered involuntary pony slaughter, which is something that I simply cannot let go unpunished.” Tears began form in Twilight’s eyes. “Does this mean you’re putting me in jail?” She asked in high pitched sobbingly manner. Celestia closed her eyes and took a deep breath. “I don’t like this anymore than you do Twilight, but this is a crime that is too serious for me to just ignore, so yes, I’m going to have to take you to jail.” She said in a cold, emotionless manner. Celestia’s words sent a cold shiver down Twilight’s spine. Her world as she knew it felt as if it was suddenly falling apart. She had unwittingly killed somepony yesterday because of her reckless actions, and now she would be held accountable. “N-no...” Twilight sobbed in a hushed manner as tears began to flow across her face at a much faster rate, like a cold river overflowing across her face. “Please princess, I’m sorry! I didn’t mean it!” She cried. “I know my faithful student.” Celestia said. ”But a princess I am obligated to protect my subjects and to carry out justice and punish wrongdoers!” Twilight attempted to plea to the Princess not to arrest her, but she was soon interrupted. “I’m taking you to the Canterlot Detention Center, where you will be held until your court date. I will see if I can get you a lighter sentence, but I can’t make any promises.” Celestia said in a very serious tone. Twilight’s blood went from cold, to frozen to the point where not even the sun could keep her warm. Celestia’s horn began to illuminate as she teleported out of the Golden Oak Library, taking Twilight, and the armored guard with her, leaving Twilight’s humble abode empty and silent, as if she never existed. On Twilight’s desk was her coffee mug that was half full and her incomplete schedule that she never finished.

    Adventure Manehattan Episode 1

    Manehattan Noir Episode 1:Sin City Manehattan,New Yorkie,1924 Manehattan is a City,a City full of crime,too numerous to count.The police can handle the petty crimes.But for certain cases,the police won’t do.Thats where Rarity comes into play... *Smooth 1920s jazz plays* Rarity’s thoughts: It was a slow night tonight,there hasn’t been any major crimes with weeks.So all I’ve been doing recently is nothing sadly,and my partner Spike,helps with the petty crimes and oth- *Slams open door* Twilight: DETECTIVE RARITY!!! Rarity: Yes Mrs.T? Twilight: That’s Commissioner Twilight to ya! We have a lead on a Sugarcube Smuggling ring!

I’m not giving up my fortune!!! *moon grabs a dagger that was attached to her leg,and attempts to stab Rarity,but she misses.Rarity throws her to the ground and puts her in cuffs.* Rarity:Your drug smuggling days are done. Moon:DAMN!!! Kid: Wow Miss,you’re amazing at fighting people! *the police then arrive* Twilight: Satisfactory job Detective. Rarity: Oh please commissioner...*lights cigar* Twilight: You’re right,you did pretty good.You stopped a drug smuggling crew! *Rarity stares at the city* Rarity: Before I leave Commissioner I must ask... Twilight:Yes? Rarity: How come her bar was selling alcohol? Whereas the 18th Amendment says “no distribution of alcoholic substances”? Twilight: uhm...I don’t know...? Rarity: Right...*smokes cigar again,and hops into a patrol car* Rarity’s thoughts: Today I stopped a drug lord...one of my biggest cases since,two years ago.I wonder what’s next in line for me.But until then,when this city needs me I’ll be there! Up next Episode 2: A Ripper in town... Feel free to comment on how I should improve on my next Episode! Until next time,Nightmare Terror

    Drama Dusk Rider's Story

    Hey everyone. Since I'm new to the forums, I figured I should share the two currently completed stories I have up on FiMFiction. Both are related, and both revolve around one of my characters, Dusk Rider/Lazuli Cutter. https://www.fimfiction.net/story/393376/the-dulling-of-a-blade The Dulling of a Blade A street-mare turned assassin finds herself trapped in a cycle of crime and loneliness that she desperately wants to escape from, as much as she hates to admit it. Is it even possible for her to come back from a life of crime, or is she doomed to become a forgotten criminal whose only legacy is death and destruction? And a direct sequel to that story, Coagulation. https://www.fimfiction.net/story/394092/coagulation I won't provide a summary for that one, because it slightly spoils the ending of Dulling of a Blade. I'm well aware that my writing is...sub-par at best, but I'd be remiss if I didn't at lesat share what I've got.
  9. A mysterious sickness is in the town of ponyville and some belive thieres a culprit in the everfree woods who could have answers yet many a pony have tired and faild finding the said pony. Could one pony Ajax find the answers? this is his story.....
  10. Well well well, Pudding wants to roleplay! Its been a long time since I've last done it. Good thing I've been practicing my writing skills for years! Sense I'm a horror junkie, I want to start off RPing again with a spooky story. Anyone can join as long as we all get along and have some roleplay experience. Sound good to you? Alrighty, lets begin: Story (Its almost Autumn in Ponyville! The trees are changing colors, the pumpkins are being carved, and the rain... the rain will come in full force. Things are starting to seem unfamiliar this year, especially with the appearance of a new mare in town. You see her staring up at the greying sky. No one seems to notice her except a few other ponies who walk by. Who is she? Why are dark clouds gathering? Maybe you're just feeling under the weather. Still, you cant help but be curious...)

    All Magic is Neutral: A Theory

    Magic as we all know is found in every living creature in Equestria. This may not seem true, but it is all true. The problem is, creatures like ordinary birds, squirrels and bunnies don't have the capabilities of extracting and using that magic. In fact, magic flows everywhere around Equestria as tiny little particles. These particles are grey, unless influenced by a user. A user can change the color of these particles by attracting them with their own power from inside them. There are only two colors these particles can change into: black and white. White particles are the result of magic that has a positive influence. Black particles are the result of magic that has a negative influence. Think of a Venn Diagram... Imagine one side being black, the other side white and the middle being grey. Now, imagine every single particle of magic, flowing through the middle of the diagram. To put the particle theorem to the test, let's examine the conversion of Luna to Nightmare moon. Princess Luna is known for her giggly and happy personality... However, she can also be quite unpredictable, especially when there is chaos...we see her trying to resolve things the old fashion way... However, on that one night, we see Luna's particles change from white back to the middle and enter a light shade of black as the jealousy toward her sister starts to build. Once the last string is pulled, all particles have become black as Luna transforms into her alternate ego: Nightmare Moon. Because magic can always shift, the black particles can return to grey or even white. Purification items and reversing spells accomplish this task. The Elements of Harmony are an example of purification items. Once the purification process is complete, all particles have returned to white. In the case of Nightmare Moon, this caused her to revert to Luna. In the case of Tirek, since he had absorbed magic and became stronger, this reverted him back to his weakest form. Because the Mane 6 are the elements of harmony, they can dig deep within to completely restore all black particles to white. Sadly, some beings were entirely made from darkness and overexposure to purification items causes their bodies to go on overload and...either explode from the energy (like Sombra) or return to a neutral/frozen state (like Discord). Now unicorns do have free access to dark magic. They can recite some via spell book or dig deep within (if and only if the unicorn has mastery over control). As noted in The Crystal Empire, Twilight Sparkle had to use dark magic to reveal a hidden stair case. I know what you're thinking..."Wait! Didn't you say only black particles come about due to negative influence?" Well this is true. There is however a very small percent of dark magic that is used for positive purposes such as revealing hidden paths and uncovering deadly traps in a dark maze. While in the realm of the Crystal empire, Crystal ponies are an excellent demonstration of this theory. When crystallized, a crystal pony's particles are all white. However, when in fear and/or sad, they dull out as their particles become a lighter shade of black. Remember, a lighter shade of black just means that there is either a lock, sap or a host feeding off of magic. Love magic is considered the purest form of magic in my theory, as the particles are the brightest of white. Princess Cadence is the greatest example of this. When Queen Chrysalis pulls her trickery, she encases Shining Armor in an aura of dark magic. His white particles have turned to grayish black as Chrysalis is feeding off of his magic. Because Chrysalis doesn't have complete control over Shining Armor, his particles never go fully black. When Cadence uses her love spell on him, his particles return to white as he is freed from the dark sapping magic. When Shining Armor and Cadence combine to create the ultimate love spell, the particles are the whitest of whites. This is a 100% pure and perfect spell. Queen Chrysalis on the other hand has always had black particles. Because she never had a previous form, the white particles collided with her and pushed her away, rather than freezing her or reverting her to a weaker and good form. Speaking of changelings...Thorax plays a major key in our discussion of my theory. Because he had separated from the bunch and decided to become good, his particles became grayish black as well, and slowly moved towards the gray and neutral zone. Nonetheless, due to his need to feed off of love, some darker particles still lurked. At the end of "The Times, They Are A Changeling" and in the middle of "To Where and Back Again" there is a noticeable difference in Thorax's appearance. His wings have changed into crystal. According to the show, this means he does not even need to feed off of love anymore. In the final battle against Chrysalis, Thorax believes all the love is being taken away from him. However, when Starlight tells him to share all of his love, there is a massive change as Thorax's particles completely purify and become a bright white. Again, when the changelings perform this feat, Chrysalis is pushed away due to the absence of weaker forms. To tie this in with my previous blog about the neutrality of magic, let's add the particle theory to it. Twilight's Crown and other items of the like carry grey neutral particles. When Twilight wears her crown, all particles change to white. Nonetheless, there is no magical effect due to the purity of Twilight Sparkle. However, as stated in my previous blog, items such as crowns, gems and necklaces when worn by a pony with malicious intent will have a negative effect on said pony. The most popular effect is a dark transformation. The item feeds of the negative energy from the black particles within said being, thus triggering the transformation. SciTwi's magic-sapping necklace is a very unique element. You see, when the Mane 6 transformed into their half-pony states, they were using an "awakening spell" meaning one that requires a user to be their true self to awaken the power within. SciTwi's magic-sapping necklace could sap any magic and neutralize it, rendering all particles grey. When Principal Cinch finds out about this, she and her classmates beckon her to use the magic with a song. Now this presents a dilemma in the theory. However, it can be proved. SciTwi is very insecure and hesitant to do things. During the song "Unleash the Magic" the black particles from the auras of Principal Cinch and Twilight's fellow classmates were already influencing the magic. Therefore, when Twilight unleashed it all, she transformed into the evil Midnight Sparkle. So...after all of this, the magic we all see and know is all around Equestria. Ponies of all species have the ability to tap in and utilize this magic. However, it is unicorns, alicorns and any other being who can directly interact with the magic all around them that have the greatest influence on magic. Finally, it's not just about how a pony or being used magic, it is what their heart desires that ultimately defines the magic they use, whether light, dark or neutral. Thoughts?
  12. Hey guys just thought I'd come here and show you guys the first chapter of the new fanfic I've been working on. A trip into the Yaket Mountains north of the Crystal Empire takes a dark, lovecraftian like twist. Let me know what you think: https://www.fimfiction.net/story/383531/the-whispers-of-the-yaket-mountains
  13. This is part of a collaborative project I did with another youtuber. It is my first dabble into rock music and I had a lot of fun DL link and complete song are found on the youtube page
  14. Equestria: Duality Hello everyone. This is my first hosted roleplay on this site so forgive me if this isn't like others you've been in. I've been in few pony roleplays but I had an idea I thought would be fun to do with a group of people. I hope you enjoy! You are a pony who has been invited to a resort in the Crystal Empire by the owner of said vacation haven himself. Your summons is simple, your name was randomly drawn and you've been offered an expense free vacation to the lovely beachside location, starting with a special feast with your host. Upon arrival you are treated like favored guests and after dinner are excused to rest and await the fun of the next day. Not long into the night your group decides to go on a walk to explore the location of your generous vacation. You and your party of fellow guests however encounter a twist and suddenly everything about the Equestria you know and love isn't as it should be... Your pony has become drastically different than it was before and now it's an upgrade of the original! Your character may have swapped genders. They may have even changed species! Or they may have simply discovered that they have magical abilities or gained physical prowess where they had none before. You're goal? To find out what's going on and get home? The catch? You don't know how and you need help to do it. Submitting: Upon your character's acceptance they will receive their letter of invitation to be pampered and you will begin your turn by responding to that letter and meeting at the resort. When submitting please remember that your character will have changes and incorporate those upgrades. You can be as creative as you like with these changes and I would like you to keep in mind that they will be normal ponies when this roleplay begins. They will have normal, otherwise canonically believable lives with jobs and families. Roles to apply for: Medic/Healer- You'll be invaluable to your comrades with your ability to heal and better them. Though you may be able to protect yourself, saving others is your prime objective. Mage- You will primarily fight with magical attacks and abilities, but this does not mean you have to be a unicorn. Something has changed you after all. Your role will be defense mostly but your comrades may need your magical talents for enchanting and more practical situations. Warrior- You will fight with weapons and will wield ones where others cannot. Your abilities lie in your physical prowess. Scout- You're the master of stealth. If it's spying, silent attacks, or quick escapes your pony is who others look to. You'll probably be in charge of providing the vital information to the one in charge that determines the actions of the team as a whole. Tactition- Not overly battle inclined but still important. You find out who is on your side and what places are safe. Where can you get supplies? Where is the enemy's bases of operations and what can you do to foil them? You're the one who puts everything together and offers up the important details to the others. You get in touch with allies and make the preparations for missions. Constructor- When given the materials you make what you need and repair broken weapons. Give the mages something to enchant, fix your medic's tools, craft armor for your warrior. Rules: Submission format- 1.) Please don't god mod your character. If you can defeat an alicorn alone then your character is boring and unnecessary as a team contributor. If you can't die you aren't being a fair roleplayer. Please keep abilities in check so we can all have fun. 2.) No Mary/Gary Sues. It should go without saying that that you shouldn't submit or become an alicorn in this roleplay. No not spirits or gods of elements and objects either. Your character shouldn't be perfect, no one is. 3.) Please specify the changes undergone by your character when they upgrade. This includes gender changes, race changes, abilities gained, and simple changes in appearances. Be creative, but not over the top okay? 4.) Try not to fall out of touch. Post at least twice a week and alert the others to periods of absence. (For example I'm mostly active in evenings and at night.) Keep chatting even when it's not your turn and get to know your fellow roleplayers. Remember to be respectful though. 5.) As for length, I understand that in some cases ( conversations mostly ) there isn't much to be added but 200 character minimums are the goal. If you fall short once or twice that's okay so long as your posts are decent in length the rest of the time. Quality is preferred over quantity though so try to be detailed and proofread before posting. Legibility is key and we all want to see what you paint for our minds. Warrior- Mage- @P-Jay Medic- @Blood Moon@PonyOfDespair Scout- Tactician- Constructor- @driz *Sidenote: Don't be discouraged if someone has the role you want, I'm allowing a max of two in a single role.
  15. OOC: https://mlpforums.com/topic/165317-when-hearts-grow-cold-chapter-one-shadows-fall-epic-adventure-dark/ When shadows fall. Crowley was waiting. His hawk was circling high above his head, like a predator keeping a watchful eye, waiting to strike. His green, piercing eyes scanned the area. He wasn't only observing, he was percieving everything, allowing all sensations to flourish within his consciousness. From the little mouse that was running through the grass to the guard sneezing in the distance on top of a tower. Almost lifelessly he stared in front of him, to the closed door, that lead to the palace hall, and then to the inner rings of the city. Waiting and watching was something he was pretty good at. You'd think waiting isn't a skill, but if you have to wait 3 whole days, being disciplined enough to stay alert, you'd start thinking differently. They should be coming now. The sun was high in the sky, straight above him, making his shadow small. It was noon. He hoped that this group would show up. The last had only two that were willing to participate. All the others had been cowards. Too frightened by the idea of having to do something meaningful. He hated ponies like that. So in the heat of the sun, about as motionlesss as a statue, only his chest revealing that he was a breathing, living being, he waited. And around him, on the walls and towers, and in many corners were guards on patrol. Some visible. Some not. After all, this was the first barrier of defense to the princesses themselves. Perfect security was a must. {Turn 1} Arrive at the palace and enter the courtyard.
  16. When shadows fall Over the valleys Beneath the clouds that obscure the sun Who can recall A dream, once it's over And everything's been said and done If I could hold you in my arms just one more time If I could simply take away the distance between our minds Forget the sadness in your eyes The bitterness and lies No love can hold When hearts grow cold History is about to come to the present… To seek retribution. ------------------------- When hearts grow cold: Chapter one Greetings everyone. Over the last months I’ve been in a ton of roleplays, and each of them had very interesting perks to them. I’ve hosted a few roleplays in the past, but I decided I was going to do it differently this time. I’ve taken a few aspects of every roleplay I really enjoyed and created this. Maybe you’ll recognise some things. Just know that if you think I’m stealing ideas, I’m merely trying to make this roleplay as pleasurable as possible by taking the best of all roleplays I’ve been in. I hope that makes sense Not very long ago, a powerful artefact was stolen from the ‘Starswirl the Bearded’ section of the Canterlot library. This powerful artefact could grant power and knowledge to the wrong kind of pony. Despite the countless safety precautions taken a thief still managed to break in and steal the artefact. Not many ponies have seen the act of stealing itself, but a few clues have been left behind. Alongside this problem rumours have spread of a notorious gang causing trouble all over Equestria, leaving trails behind in several locations. Nopony knows what they are up to yet, but they’ve been stealing and breaking into places for a while now. Some are more frightened by this group than others, claiming that they are more organised and precise than all other criminals that came before them. Your character has been sent a letter and called upon by the princesses to search for the artefact, and perhaps retrieve some more information about who did it, and if they have anything to do with the obscure gang of thieves. You will travel alongside other ponies in the same situation as you in a party, each of you fulfilling a different role. Your first task is to come to Canterlot so you can be informed of the situation and ask any questions you may have. I would like you to apply your character for a certain role. In the roleplay itself your character will receive a letter requesting them to join the travelling party fulfilling that specific role. It would also be nice to give the princesses a reason to choose you in your character application. Is your character the best in his trade? Perhaps he’s been loyal to the crown up until now, or has expressed his will to support the princesses before. This is not obligatory however. The different roles are as follows: Roles: Guard/Soldier: Since the party will be facing dangers on their journey, there has to be somepony that can protect them. A heavyweight of some sort that can overcome most physical problems, is proficient with some sort of weaponry and can make decisions in combat. Your character doesn’t have to be completely oriented around combat however. Mage: In many situations a mage is very useful. Thus it is important that there is a unicorn proficient with advanced magic present in the party. The mage shouldn’t be combat-oriented though. More so a wizard specialising in utility, research or transmutation spells. That doesn’t mean your character can’t fight, just don’t come up with a battle mage. Scout/Rogue: Somepony who’s either too quick to be caught, or too stealthy to be seen. Who can infiltrate and investigate when nescesary. Is it a master of disguise, a mage of illusion or just a really fast Pegasus? That’s up to you. Detective: This story is full of intrigue. Somepony has to be clever enough to connect the dots, to see the story behind the facts. As the scouts infiltrate and the diplomats negotiate, when the mages decipher and the soldiers interrogate, the detective sits behind it all, waiting for the moment he's struck with the solution. Diplomat: When it comes to negotiating, it’s important that you have a professional with you. The diplomat is a pony with a silver tongue, a witty mind and a strong will. Manipulative and cunning, a diplomat can coerce anyone to his or her purpose. Navigator: This party is going to travel a lot, sometimes even through uncharted area. To have a pony who knows his way around anywhere is vital if you do not want to get lost. The navigator is in charge of the parties direction, keeping them out of dangerous areas, and is most knowledgeable of the environment. Doctor/medic: If anypony becomes injured and impedes the parties’ pace, it is best to have a pony with a medical license at hand to fix the injury as quickly as possible. The medic might even be the most important of all, because he can get anypony back on their hooves. How he does so is up to you, but strengthening others and helping others recover is your sole purpose. These roles are taken pretty loosely. It’s more to make sure the party has a variety of different skillsets. You don’t necessarily have to be a warrior to fulfil the soldier role, and you won’t precisely be playing a soldier at all times either. As long as your character somewhat fits the description it’ll be fine. Surprise me with something original! I like that Application template: Rules. - No god modding, no powerplaying and no Metagaming. If a character isn't yours. You can't control them. Simple. Taking control of another players character is strictly forbidden. There might also be things that you yourself, as an OOC person knows, that your character doesn’t know. Make sure you keep track of what and what isn’t within your characters knowledge. Also don’t entirely base your character around their powers or exceptional talent. Sure, it can be a very major factor, but it is important that they have an actual character, and are also not too powerful. There are many examples in which you can try to avoid this rule, but please use common sense and don’t do it. - No Mary / Gary Sue behaviour. Your character is not perfect in any way. Neither personality, nor appearance, nor talents and powers. Just keep things like that in mind. -Post length. 200 character posts have their place and their uses, but they shouldn't be the norm. I don't like imposing a minimum character limit as short posts are sometimes needed, but I expect a minimum average of 400 characters and would hope that people aim for a minimum of 600 characters. Of course, when travelling, or when there aren’t a lot of things happening, you can greaten the length of your post by spending more time with inner dialogue or describing scenery. That will flesh out the environment and make it easier for others to come up with ideas to write about. - Post Quality. Please take your time to proofread your posts for grammar, punctuation and spacing. Don’t just make your posts fun to read, make them easy to read! - Respect other players. Your characters may come to hate each other: you shouldn't hate each other as players though. This is a roleplay, not a competition. It's not worth falling out over. - Communication and activity Please make sure to let us know if you aren’t going to be able to post for a while, and also try to post at least twice a week. It makes it a whole lot easier to keep the roleplay going. My main objective is to finish this roleplay to the end, and I will take measures to keep it alive! This will include kicking people and inviting new members into the roleplay at some point. On the point of communication, it’s also great if you talk to each other. About things happening in the RP, but also about posting activity. Lots of roleplays I’ve been in died because everyone was waiting on each other… Accepted characters: Guard/Soldier: @PonyOfWar as War Mage: @PathfinderCS as Stargazer Scout/Rogue: @Dark Horse as Nova Nightstar Diplomat: @Lil' Lovebug as Amber Whiskey @SilverHeart as Mirror Image Navigator/Detective: @Golbez as Logic Bomb Doctor/medic: @EQ_Theta as Salus "Salve" Veta One last thing! I'm still working out the concept of this RP, and there might be things unclear in this OOC. I've got much more information than is actually displayed here. If you have questions, please do ask them. I can explain things that are unclear, and possibly add to the current OOC explanation so things will become clearer. I won't bite, please ask as many questions as you want!
  17. Hey, I actually posted this topic back in early April. I've been working on and brainstorming ideas for a fanfic that I hope to have out in July. Its an alternate ending to Lesson Zero where somepony dies during the events and Celestia has to hold Twilight accountable. Celestia Incarcerates Twilight in a northern prison that is hundreds of miles away from ponyville, where she is cut off from her friends and family. As she serves her time, her character begins to change as she becomes less of a nerdy bookworm and more aggressive, before being visited by the res of the mane 6 and realizing that she had turned into a monster. I've already greenlighted the project and I'm shooting for July 11th as my launch date complete with the first 5 chapters and coverart. That being said, I am looking for editors who can revise and edit my work. If you're interested in applying as an editor, please PM me or contact me through deviantart.
  18. Raider Caltrop here.. Im doing a Casting Call for Fallout Equestria: Dark Days, if anyone would like me to use their OC's in the story, please post down below. If you could as well, please put your OC information down, as well as a wanted Occupation (I.E.: Raider, Trader, Doctor, Wastelander, etc) This would really help me, in more ways than one, and I think It'll be fun for all of us..
  19. We've seen our fair share of what happens when villains when in MLP the man villains almost always have the upper hand until the main six bring down the magical rainbow hammer of death by friendship upon them , plenty of tics have been written about the villains winning and of course we have the alernate timelines from season five but has anyone ever done a MLP version of this? http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/TabletopGame/DisneyVillainsVictorious For anyone who isn't aware Disney Villains Victorious is basically a timeline where all of the major and some minor Disney villains get what they want, splitting up and dividing the world as they see fit while the heroes created by the players are some of the last remaining hopes of stopping them this at least I think would be a fascinating and fun concept for MLP style adventure tell me what you think about it
  20. Chaotic Overlord

    Chaos reigns

    [OOC: https://mlpforums.com/topic/165293-chaos-reigns-oocplanningsearching/] (Since almost no one responded to the OOC thread I'll just start this and anyone who wishes to get involved can do so ) We open. In the Badlands outside of Equestria a land that has been thrown into eternal strife by Isfet. "Ugh bored ....." the chaos lords groan looking around the kingdom with apathy "Well we finally got rid of Throax dumb bug was getting in our way. Chrysalis is right he had no idea how to rule the changelings ah well he's gone now ha ha ha!" The mad gods surveyed the area around them "Hmm we can't tell ol Sunbutt about what we did here but with any luck we could convince her to side with us heck she knows we've got the girls wrapped around our claws perhaps with some encouragement the real conquest can begin Haha ha ha ha ha. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!"
  21. (This based off a ongoing series that me and a few friends do on Fimfiction ) We open in a alternate Equestria. As Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are giving a spech to a clsss of filles and colts. "Welcome to Canterlot children we're so happy to be leading this tour." Celestia gave a bright smile As Luna nodded warmly "Indeed we have much to tell you about our land and it's rich history " "Hm hm as do we...." familiar voices echoed and bounced across the vibrant castle walls. "Isfet... " Both princesses sighed "Bingo!" The crazed gods poofed into the room in a odd explosion of shadow colored smoke and living confetti Luna sighed heavily "What is it you want?" she wiped the living party favors from her mane in pain. "Well we just noticed you were giving these wonderful little foals a history lesson and we figured we'd give our amazing imput on the subject." Celestia hesitated she didn't wish to offend the semi reformed villains they'd been friends for quite a while but she knew mixing immortal monsters with small children was a terrible idea. "With all due respect Isfet. I'm not sure the foals should he around beings with such a. Checkered past ." Isfet in their usual mocking way covered themselves in checker spot "Whatever do you mean?" "Conquering Equestria under thousands of years of eternal chaos, enslaving the Crystal Empire, the Alicorn Amulet. Weirdmaggedon, the Wonderbolts academy incident, aiding the Lion Tyrant Scar, cutting up,a child's parents was into chili and feeding it to him." Luna made a blunt list of just some of their many crimes. "Humph come on that's all in the past we've moved past such things." They poofed a flashing over the top rainbow colored sign that read "good guys " in annoyingly bright letters "You may not be full blown villains anymore but you're not exactly. Good " "Oh just shut up and give us the space to talk. Tell me what you think of isfet's personality so far and I'll continue
  22. * I already ask any mod to change this topic's section if is in the wrong one, many thanks. * So, is about months that my head is producing head canons that my been or be not worth a fan fiction or an emplementation , so I decided to share them, to understand which is intresting and which, how can I say... oh yeah, bleah. Of corse, some will bein in a human universe, some not etc... Here we go: - Endless Night: the latest I came up with, is set into an human Equestria, and much more years before Luna's banishment. The plot of the story is this: in a now forgotten city, a young Celestia struggle with her decadent royal family, that's corrupting the kingdom of her father and Godlike figure Solaris, King of the Sun. One day, a mysterious female warrior in a terrifying armor kidnap her, and, after a long jorney into the dark forest that surrend the city, she'll find out the truth: the warrior in the creepy armor is her true sister, that's been replaced by a man called Daggarth, who brain washed theyre father after theyre mother died. In this story, the two have to find six powerful archgems, known by the legends as "the Elements of Harmony", forged by the Gods to prevent The Nightmare's dark come( which, actually, is a incarnation of darkness and corruption). Of corse, the first one is given by theyre first ally and Luna's father-like figure, Starswril, bearer of the Element of magic. The other five are in possess of the Five Princes, who, thanks to Daggarth, now rule behind their royal parents. But something worse lurk into the shadow of this story, behind even Daggarth. - The Cold Lands: pony universe, after season 5. Equestria has been cought by a cataclysm: a strange and actually mysterious winter has stricken the lands of the ponies. The earth itself is cold, her fire is fading, and the only thing that make warm this dieing land is the power of Celestia, the Queen of Griffins and Cadence. For getting things worst, a magical undead disease is stricking: whoever die will return as a undead, destinated to madness, and to travel into the cold realm of Coldashes. This is actually a more Dark Souls like story. - Strangers in town: a comedic story, with ponies. A strange duo has come to ponyville: theire names are Norm and Seed, and are a... clearly odd coupple of brothers. One energic, sarcastic, quietly disturbing and with odd passions (like spiders, spying others and drinking), the other gloom, solitare and grump all the time. This is mostly a Slice of life story, which will involves much of the characters. - The draconic wars: pony world, set in the past of Starswrill and Solaris. Not related to Endless Night. Before Equestria, or even the Three tribes, the world was wisely ruled by the dragons, but greed and savagery digged deeply into the beasts heart, and a war exploded. Kingdoms felt and heroes rised, and new legend birthed in those days. In this story, Starswrill is in his mid 30s, so he's still experimenting with magic spells and the studies on the various forms of it (like pyromancy, dark magic, Deep magic, etc.), plus he'll befrend a corpulent, yet heroic knight of Solaris: Rockshield the Dragonslayer, which will make a strong bound of friendship. - Dark Age: pony setting. In short, Twilight became "evil" after a fight with a not-so-important foe, caused by heavy use of dark magic. She become a tyrant, and is also saw like a traitor and loosed all her friends, who now are part of a resistance. Of corse, in this story there are new enemies, not all of them ponies: one of Twilight (now renamed by herself Black Nova)'s generals is a boar-like humanoid creature, known as Ohger (joke on Ogre) or Hog. The plot is simple: the resistance want Twilight away from the throne, Twilight want to rule over Equestria, and possibly stop her friends... or even kill them. But who knows, maybe Twiligth isn't that worse then the resistance (in a chapter, the resistance had almost destroied the Crystal Empire thanks to the Yaks branch)... or the disease that's spreading trought the land. - Stars-splorers: Sci-fi universe, with artificially evolved ponies (anthros). In a distant millenia, Equestria has gone far out her borders... and solar system to! It's the time of space travel, extraterrestrial commerce, conflict-solfing and, of corse, the exploration of the vast, expanding universe. Thanks to Twiligth's help, the ponykind is now capable of walking on two legs, and posses hands. Also, she is the captain of a squad of choosen ponies, all descendants of her long lost friends. Is an epic journy, comic too, sad at times, scary in a few times, and mysterious, thanks to a never reached planet... - Trixie and Starlight travel in the Multiverse: Trixie and Starlight travel into many dimensions, passing by videogames, comics, other cartoons etc. Thinked as a comic adventure and based on Family Guy's episode with Brian and Stewie. Ok, this are all the Head canons/story ideas I get into the past months. Is someone is interested in one (not endless night), is welcomed to share his thoughts, because will help me expand this. Plus sorry for the grammatical errors

  24. So what is your first recollection of being truly terrified in your life? I'm talking terrified- stuff that scorches a permanent vivid memory and may cause (or may still cause) you literal nightmares. Maybe something from a movie, natural disaster, accident, warzone etc? Remember to post WHITHIN the limits of what's allowed on this forum. KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS TOPIC IS RELATIVE- EVERYONE'S LIFE IS MADE OF DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES. Anyway, what brings this up is that I finally found the unreleased full uncut version of a scene from a movie that absolutely terrified me at about 4 or 5 years old. It's the hell scene from the animated movie "All Dogs Go To Heaven." I'm Catholic and this was the first INTENSE visual conceptualization of the idea of Hell that I had ever seen... ***The computer screen lower quality bits were cut scenes lost for the last 28 years.*** This scene was the first thing in my life that truly terrified me. It didn't make me cry or anything, it just overloaded my 4/5 year old brain or something. I had a recurring nightmare where I was in a derivative of this scene (that I can still recall 23 years later)that I would have every once in a while for a few months. Funny thing is that this is my favorite animated movie and I used to watch it all the time as a kid. I think it also has to do why I like darker stuff and darker gangly characters like Chrysalis. LUCKILY I had a pretty good childhood- so a scene from a movie was my first terrifying thing . So what are the oldest horrors tattooed into your brains?
  25. There has been this on going theme over the last few years, where people have this strange perception that a darker plot equals a better movie, eventhough there is no evidence whatsoever that this is an actual fact. Infact, i think dark movies have become very cliche recently, with movies about characters that have a dark past and that had a troubled childhood (something i like to call the Batman trope) and it just makes me sigh. Is it really so bad to have a movie with a positive outlook on life, without getting into a dark and edgy territory? Seriously, give me a feel good movie like mary poppins and i take it over another dark and edgy comic book movie anyday. What do you think about this?
