  1. I can't really find the words, but I'm infatuated with her. Is she generally regarded as a cliche "edgy" bad guy? I don't care, personally... i love her. She has an edgier (don't hate me for using that word in a positive sense, please) backstory than Luna and Starlight Glimmer combined. The isolation and loneliness that Luna suffered and the losses that Starlight felt, done better, bigger and badder. Her pain just feels more real and convincing than the others. I'm not sure where I'm going with this, so I'll leave it at that.
  2. Is anypony hyped for lord of the rings shadow of war I sure am... just me?

  6. Sonic: 'Sup? My name is Sonic, Sonic the Hedgehog! You probably already know me though since I AM the fastest, most way past cool hedgehog alive! Silver: And I'm Silver the Hedgehog! I come from almost 200 years in the future, I have psychokinesis, and while you may think my hair looks like pot, I assure you it does not! Sonic: We're here to answer any questions you may have about....(psst, hey kid, what kind of questions are we answering?) Me: Anything they ask you. Sonic: (Okay, cool, thanks!) We're here to answer any questions you have! Silver: Hey, where's Shadow? Shouldn't he be here too? *Shadow walks in* Shadow: Yeah, yeah, I'm here Leaf Boy... *Silver feels hair looking upset* Silver: Aren't you going to do your introduction Shadow? Shadow: Hah! The Ultimate Life-Form doesn't need an introduction! Let's just get to the damn questions.... Sonic: Right...well, ask away folks!
  7. Ok so, this happened, I was once with my friend discussing 'The Crystal Empire' when we got into Sombra, I said, "What is he was brought back in season five?" so my friend asked, "Would he still be evil?" I thought about it then said, "His horn could've been accidentally put into a stew for a sickly pregnant mare, who drinks the brew and gives birth to Sombra." my friend and I thought about it, so we started coming up with stories, anyway, here is the art I drew just a few moments ago, with my shaky self from being on the boat.. It took a while, but its done. PS: Evil Sombra is Sombra's shadow. Which is weird because I just said, Shadow's shadow. (WHAT?!)
  8. Probably the 5th time I have tried this but PLEASE ASK MEH QUESTIONS. Man I sound desperate....
  9. Sophia woke up in bed. It was Sunday morning. Every Sunday her and her mother would go to Sugarcube Corner and have sundae. Just because it was sunday. She stretched in bed and looked around her room. Her books where on the floor, there were drawings on the wall of her and her younger sister, and her Daring Doo poster was on the ceiling. Just how she had left it when she went to bed last night. But something was different. She couldn't quite put her hoof on it, but there was something different. Her mother knocked on the door. "Sweetie are you up?" She asked as she opened the door. "Yes." Sophia said. "Sophia?" Her mother said worriedly and looked at the bed. "What?" She said. "Sophia WHERE ARE YOU!?" Her mother said extremely worried. "I'm Right HERE!" She shouted. Her mother ran over and put her hoof on her daughter's bed looking around the bed. What scared Sophia is when her mother brough her hoof down on the bed, it went right through her leg. "What!? How....Why!? Mom!!!" She said trying to hug her mother but passing right through her. "Sophia, this isn't funny! Where are you!?" Her mother asked worriedly. "I'm right here!!" Sophia said, but it was no use. "Arieas! Sophia is gone!" She yelled to her husband. "What!?" He yelled up the stairs. Sophia cried. She wanted so badly to reach out and hug her mother. To comfort her. To let her know she was alright. Suddenly the scene changed and she was sitting in the darkness In front of King Sombra. "What! Where am I!?" She said. "In lenient terms....your in pony hell with me! I've ripped you from the world!" He said laughing. "Why!?" "Because It's fun! And I need your energy to have enough power to take over the Crystal Empire!" He laughed maniacally. "Let me go home!" She said. "Sure thing Sophie." He said with an evil grin and she was back home, outside her front door. ~One week later~ She had given up on trying to show her family she was ok. She had no idea how to get back into what she called 'the normal realm'. She thought of herself as in a different world. He did say that he ripped her from her world. And nopony is able to see her. Hear her. Touch her. She realized how lonely the ponies that she ignored at her school felt. She was part of the ponies who ignored the weird ones. She now realized how they felt. She walked through the streets sadly. Ponies passed through her, talking about their day, how cold it was, where they were going, not noticing her at all. This was the worst thing that could happen to her. She was so alone.....she sat in the cornor of a building outside and cried. "I wanna go home....I wanna hug my mommy....." She said. The image of her crying mother as she hoped her daughter would come home popped in her head. "Sophia.....where did you go......what did we do wrong?" Her mother said sitting on the couch holding Sophia's favorite stuffed pony from when she was a filly. She hugged it tightly and cried. "Mom......mommy I'm sorry....." Sophia said. Arieas came over and hugged her mother for comfort. "Don't worry....we will find her...." He said comfortingly. Her mother just cried and hugged him. That was one of the saddest day of her life. Sophia sat outside on the corner crying. She sat in a ball crumpled up in a little ball, not paying attention to what goes on around her. "Why are you crying?" A colt asked her. She ignored it thinking it was somepony talking to somepony else. He thought she was to sad to reply. He frowned. He hated to see other ponies. Especially fillies. He sat next to her and hugged her. ------------- He sat next to her and hugged her. She was shocked. She looked up at him. "You.....y-you can see me?" She said. "Of course I can see you. Your right there." He said. "But nopony else can see me." She said. "I know the feeling. Sometimes it seems like nopony can see you and they ignore you, but-" " don't understand.....nopony can see me at all.....or hear me....." She said. she stood and walked into the road and about 3 ponies passed right through her. She started crying again. "I-I'm so alone...." She said. He looked at her sadly as he walked over and pulled her out of the road. He hugged her tightly. She didn't know this colt, but he was the only one who could see her.......and he was nice. She hugged himback crying. Then she realized that she was extremely tired. She hadn't slept in days. she slowly started drifting off to sleep in his arms. He smiled and picked her up and carried her to his house. -------------- She woke up a few hours later laying in a bed. She was still tired, but she wanted to know where she was. "Your awake." The colt said. She turned to look at him. He was a pegasus. Green fur and purple flaming mane and tail. He had blue eyes and pointed at the tip ears. He looked at the snow white unicorn. She had a purple and blue swirl mane and tail with cyan eyes and a flower in her hair. "Who are you?" She asked him. "My name is Light Streak. What's yours?" He asked. ".....Sophia Heartwings....." She said cautiously. "How can you see me?" "I don't know. Are you a......ghost?" He asked a bit scared. "No. At least I don't think so. I was ripped from the world. Whatever that means." She said. "How do you know?" He asked curiously. "Some black and scary pony with a red horn told me." She said remembering it. "I miss my mom...." She said randomly. He understood why. She could never be seen. Never be heard. Never be touched. It must be so lonely. He promised himself then and there that he would take care of her, since he was the only one who could see her. And.....he kinda liked her.... He looked at her sitting in his bed looking sad. He sat on the bed next to her. "Do you know who the pony was?" He asked her. "No....but I remember where he was. He was in the forbidden cave near the Crystal Empire. I remember because my grandma lives in the Crystal Empire, so I've seen everything about it." She said. He wanted to help her. But the only way would be to go with her. But even if they went, what would they do? If he can pull her out of the world, what else could he do? LightStreak sat next to her wondering what to do. He looked over at his desk and saw his ink and quill he used to write letters to his grandmother and do schoolwork. He got an Idea. "Why don't we tell Princess Celestia and Princess Luna!" He said. (Currently still a work in progress. Tell me what you think so far!) Oc's Used- Light Streak- super2379 Arieas- Derpy Knight

  11. As those of you who are scoffing at the picture above already know, I'm not at all like Fluttershy. I just think she's adorable, and the picture was somewhat appropriate for this a mah first blog post-entry-thing. Woohoo! (In case you're wondering, I have taken the Bronyland Personality Test, and I came out as a split between AJ and Pinkie PIe, with a slight learning towards Pinkie.) Now, you probably didn't start reading this because you wanted to know which of the Mane Six I'm most like. You probably started reading this out of curiosity, perhaps fueled by some knowledge of my OC's and what I'm doing with. So, I'll probably get to the point of this quickly, perhaps fueled by the angry mob out my window demanding that I get on with it. Basically, this is going to be the place where I store what information about my OC's and fanfic ideas doesn't really belong on or the MLP Forums database. You might be wondering, as you certainly have right to wonder, why I'm putting that stuff here, and thus almost contradicting my previous claim of it not belonging in the database, and not leaving it in my head, or on my hard drive, or anywhere but here, where you might be somehow forced to read it. Well, I'm hoping...if it wouldn't be too much trouble...if those poor souls who are reading this could leave a comment or two below, or a brohoof if I actually earned it (no doing it to make me feel better!), so that I know what I'm doing right, and what I'm doing wrong. If any of you awesome ponies out there could do that, I'd be eternally grateful. Anyway, you've probably read the title of this post-entry-thing, and have noticed that it doesn't read, "A Plea for Help" or "First Post Yay!" or "Hey, guys, my name is MrPandaa, and I'd like to talk about Original Characters." Instead of any one of those posts, it reads, "The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus." Madeyalook. Really, it says "The Fundamental Ideas." Could I get any more vague? (Well, yes, I could--I mean, "The Ideas" would technically be more vague, but gimme a break here and pretend it's as rhetorical as it sounds.) What I'm gonna do in this post is basically copy-paste some very basic outlines of fanfic storyline ideas I have, and if you like the idea, I'd be Pinkie-Pie-happy if you'd say so. And, if you don't like an idea, please say that, too! I can't change if I don't know what to change! Storylines begin in (All stories begin with a narrator giving an overview of the story, similar to Brian Jacques's REDWALL series.) Post-apocalyptic, distopian Equestria--Mane Six dispersed, Twilight disappears, Rarity goes crazy/goes into coma from stress, Fluttershy missing/dead/ruthless, Pinkie Pie a little more insane, AJ only one with sanity left; acts as leader until Twilight reappears. Brock--earth pony, travels Equestria in search of knowledge in various fighting styles and forms; studies animals, ponies, changelings, etc. to copy fighting style; changes name to reflect "project"--Brock the Patient, Brock of the Mule, Agile Brock, etc. Troubled Soul/Turmoil--Trubbs attempts to defeat Turmoil; seeks out most powerful entities in Equestria--Twilight, Celestia, Luna, Zekora, Brock, (other OC's--Thunder Dash, etc.?); she must go inside herself to defeat Turmoil (follows the progression through damnation according to Dante's Inferno?); gets helped by Shadow Footsteps and Autumn Morning Shadow Footsteps and Autumn Morning--[begins: "In a dream, I see myself. I destroy everything I love, last of all, her." Shadow is getting ready to confront his remaker with Autumn (and Trouble?), explains some backstory as they battle their way to the remaker--tests that reflect his story, games that know too much, maybe his story was all planned out, and they've been duped into a trap, leads up to remaker, confront him, reveal that Shadow remde himself, with the help of Blue Skies and Autumn; believed remaker revealed to be Shadow's old boss, who now wants him dead for treason against the cult he belonged to as an assassin.] Shadow was originally assassin for highest bidder; was remade so that emotions are displayed outward by the four elements (wind, water (and ice), fire (and lightning), and earth); meets Autumn Morning, inn burns; Shadow runs away, Autumn catches up and helps him control his emotions Emotions: sadness=water, bitterness=ice; anger=lightning, love=fire; stubbornness/patience=earth; playfulness/humor/freedom=wind. Pirate ponies--crew of ponies (the Crew Capall or The Ceffyls, usually just called the Crew) marauds about Equestria in the seas and stuff; made up of a bat pony female (Blackjack?) (seductive and deadly at the same time--think Black Widow or Zero Suit Samus; "Aye, she a doxy li'l vixen, en't sheh?"), Bruno the Capaen (Captain--smooth, young (15-16), handsome swashbuckler; has idealistic hopes and dreams for world and Crew, and will defend any one of the Cephylls with his life; was once a street urchin, and has a good sense of direction--can map out whole cities in his head; Crew jokes with him about believed crush he had on Blackjack/bat pony female when just a swabbie; a tribute to user Bruno © on MLP forums) (, and are awesome; Celtic Pony Pirates! After Equestria--ponies from a faraway land (part/whole of the Crew?) find Equestria long after it is empty of ponies; maybe two of Crew enter/live in alternate reality of Equestria in which Nightmare Moon succeeded in bringing eternal night United Equestria--great evil arises, something that cannot be defeated by Celestia and the Mane Six alone; Equestrian races must band together to fight this threat; story follows a ragtag band trying to unite the races and factions, dealing with corruption as they find it; discover a decades/centuries-old plot and foil it. (could follow storyline of Wrath of Ganon) "Fairy Tales"--either pony adaptations of human tales, or new Equestrian ones Origin story/Myths--Answer: What happened before Celestia and Luna? Who are the "gods" of Equestria? etc. Story of a pony who came to earth, fell in love with a human female, and lived on earth, had a family, etc. He must go back to Equestria, confront some evil, and keep his life on earth in order, while not allowing anyone to figure out who he really is. Alright, that was a lot of typing! (Just kidding, it was Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V.) So, if you took the time to actually read that mess up there, and noticed anything cool or uncool, please comment below about it! I will be regularly posting more stuff for my OC's, but if there's anything any of you ponies want me to put up first, don't hesitate to ask! Thanks, and I'll see you bundles of awesomeness around the forums! --MrPandaa
  12. Hi everypony.. i never use Photoshop, and when i do it is just for banner or small modify so i know only the 0.0001% of it... btw i was trying to merge my OC with a Tesla laboratory photo.. here's the shitty result.. i need also to work on shadow.. i am not an artist... please tell me how to improve or where to find a good guide original: mine: without the shitty shadow
  13. Ghost Pony would like to wish everyone a Happy Nightmare Night. To those of you who are celebrating Samhain tonight, Blessed Be.
  14. Yeah, let's ignore that terrible 06 game and just focus on this trio of characters. Sonic, Shadow, and Silver the Hedgehogs are all great characters in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. They all have their own personal stories, backgrounds, personalities, companions, and abilities. While I'm well aware that Blaze the Cat is not really a friend of Silver's, I bet Silver has some sort of friend in the ruined future, right...right? (Aw, whatever. He's got Iblis to play with.) But, which one of these hedgehogs stands out among the other two? What makes them the top hog?
  15. Alright everypony. I'm writing a crossover in FIMFiction and I'm putting a lot of thought into it. I hope this will turn out to be one of the best crossovers between mlp and sonic ever. But I just want your opinion on this. Tell me what you think.
  16. I have yet another in-class sketch that soon turned into my OC, Shadow Flame. It's a black and white version of my profile picture, but closer up and a black moon background. I hope you like him I'm gonna start parting myself from notebook paper soon and use card paper or computer paper. Leave responses!
  17. Good evening mares and gentlecolts, I am here to answer any and all questions marking my return. I shall begin my describing a small amout about myself. Name: Saphira (very close companions may call me Phira) Age: Ageless Species: Alicorn (Goddess of all shadow and lust) Family: Eldest sister to Princess Celestia and Princess Luna Companion: A large, magestic, and exotic green snake by the name of Esme Brief History: Abandoned at birth, Saphira has been forced to fend for herself for millions of years, secretly plotting against her royal family for their betrayal (far too complicated to go into depth at this particular moment....find out the rest for yourself) Cutie Mark: A blue rose symbolizing her virgin innocense at spirit aswell as her unnatural and unnatainable beauty. Saphira recieved her cutie mark upon being murdered by that of which she had been a fool to love. Personality: Saphira is a complex being that cannot be described through mear words alone. However, I can clearly and without hesitation state that she is increadably evil and intelligance, often using her appearance as a weapon against her foes. However, this doesn't mean she is without ability to fend for herself. The shadows are mighty allies. Abilities: Saphira has the ability to transform into a gracefull and magestic dragon (NO REFRENCE TO ERAGON) or wolf, by wrapping herself in shadows that seep into her person and transform her. This same method can be used to create fake ponies of which she uses to infultrate the domain of her enemies, but she cannot use this ability to turn herself into the forms of creatures who have ever actually existed. Any and all differences must be spoted it one wishes to defeat her. She can also call forth the help of the shadows which cannot be easily explained. As far as her abilities go for lust, Saphira's vampiric charm can be a deadly tool and she can even turn herself into a male of the species if she so desires. NOTE TO READER: If it takes me a while to respond to a question, that is because I draw pictures of Saphira to correspond with the question and her answer. (Saphira's companion and her dragon and wolf form will be designed very soon!)
  18. My niece requested that I make a MLP - FIM Fan Fiction, so I put all my projects aside and got right to work. Well, everyone, you'll all be the first to see the completed works. I will post the Prologue tonight and pieces of each chapter every following day. I hope you enjoy this as I did creating it. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ MY LITTLE PONY – FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC LIGHT AND SHADOW PROLOGUE In the land of Equestria, all the ponies live happily throughout the land under the guidance of Princess Celestia. Long ago, Princess Celestia governed the land with her sister Princes Luna. However, jealousy and spite changed the once fair princess of the night to go against her duties to the ponies of the land and follow a far more selfish desire. The desire of dominance at the sake of the happiness of all Equestria. With no other options, the benevolent Princess was forced to act and confront her younger sister, now the evil Night Mare Moon! Using the Elements of Harmony, She banished her sister into the very moon she refused to let rest. Taking responsibility for the actions that governed the sisters to go down different paths, Princess Celestia took reign of both the sun and moon to bring night and day to the people. However, on the longest day of the thousandth year, Night Mare Moon escaped her lunar confinement with the help of the very stars themselves and tried to bring forth Eternal Night. In an act of bravery and duty, a student of Princess Celestia by the name of Twilight Sparkle, who had been researching the events leading to the crisis went forth to find the Elements of Harmony and with the help of her new found friends Applejack, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie and Rarity. Together, they defeated the malicious Night Mare Moon, once again returning her back into Princess Luna.. Order was then returned to Equestria and everypony continued happily. Since then, Twilight Sparkle and her friends have had many new adventures and mishaps, side by side. However, they did not expect that somepony would stumble into their lives and kick off their latest adventure. *CHAPTER 1 BEGINS TOMORROW* CHAPTER 1 PT 1 MY LITTLE PONY – LIGHT AND SHADOW CHAPTER I Ponyville, in the land of Equestria. It is a simple, peace filled village that was no stranger to amazing merry-go's of mishap and misadventures which never failed to bring those who would avoid everypony and bring them to new found friendships. However, the story does not take place here... Well, not yet anyway. This story begins a little way away by the sea. It was unusual for anything to ever wash up on shore other than the odd seaweed covered piece of wood. Today, however, was not one of those days. A slumped over colt wearing a heavy cloth over his head and body had found his way onto the sandy shores. Slowly, he opened his eyes and coughed hard as he recovered from his washing up on the beach. Looking around weakly, he asked, “Wh-where... Am... Where am I? Am I alive?” He stumbled to his feet and quickly fell over. He looked down and stared at his hooves blankly. Sighing, he placed one hoof on his head and said, “I won't learn anything here. Where am I? Where did I come from? Maybe somepony around here might know.” Taking a quick glance in the sea, he looked at his silver pony form and said, “I wonder where the closest town is?” Noticing the road a little way ahead of him, he moved along at a slow trot. And now we turn to Ponyville. Twilight Sparkle was in the library with her baby dragon companion Spike. Applejack was on the ranch harvesting the apples that her family were famous for. Rarity was in her home trying to find a fashion breakthrough, Rainbow Dash was moving through the sky at an alarming pace that, quite frankly, made her friends a little worried when she descended to ground level. Pinkie Pie was hopping around the whole village in her usual upbeat fashion thinking of her next party. Finally there was Fluttershy. None of her friends had seen her all day for some reason. Nopony thought too much about the absence, but they did wonder where she headed the minute the sun rose. The truth was, there was a small trail she knew of that led to the sea. She had stumbled upon it recently and would go daily to see the water breaking on the shore. This was also the same path the mysterious colt had found and the two of them were blindly heading towards each other for an encounter that would not go well for their easily startled nerves. Fluttershy trotted along humming a cheerful tune with her head up and a smile on her face. No more than thirty yards away, the mysterious colt traveled with his head low and his cloak impairing his vision of anything higher than his nose. As they neared each other on the forested path, they remained oblivious of each others presence... even when they were right in front of each other. Seconds later, the two of them collided with a mighty crash! Slowly, Fluttershy got to her feet saying quietly, “Ouch...” v~Sat. April 21~v The colt lay there completely dazed and unable to do much more than let out an awkward groan. After a short moment, their eyes locked, eyes wide and alert. They stared at each other longest of moments, taking in the face of the one the collided into. Their faces turned red and. calm, then in a sudden reaction befitting the two strangers, leaped into the air letting out a loud scream of shock and surprise as they ducked behind the first obstacle they could find. Fluttershy and the colt yelled, “I'm sorry! I didn't mean to!” After a moment of awkward silence, they opened one eye and again in unison said, “You're not mad?” Shuffling awkwardly, they then muttered, “Well, I'm not mad. Are you hurt... or anything... if not, that's good...” About that moment, they realized they they had just mirrored each other for the past two minutes and started laughing awkwardly. Fluttershy said shyly, “What's your name?” The colt replied, “I... I'm... His voice trailed off as he finished his answer. The timid pony said, “Hi, Starburst... I'm...” This time, Fluttershy trailed off and the colt replied, “Nice to meet you, Fluttershy. Do you know where I am?” The question caught her completely off guard. It was very unlikely anypony could be this close to Ponyville and NOT know where they were. She looked at him and asked, “You don't know?” Starburst shook his head and replied, “Not really. All I remember is waking up from a long swim.” Smiling shyly, Fluttershy said, “I guess you don't want to see the Sea then.” The two laughed at the obvious answer. Starburst pulled a piece of seaweed out from his hood and said, “No. Not for a while. Is there a town nearby? I'm a little lost.” With that question, Fluttershy knew for certain that this colt was from far away. Perhaps even beyond the horizon the sea drifted into. Smiling, the pony said, “Ponyville is the closest to here. Do you want me to show you where it is?” Starburst smiled and said, “I'd like that.” As they walked to the village, Fluttershy smiled and said, “I can't wait to introduce you to my other friends.” Laughing awkwardly, he said, “They're not going to scream and run away, are they? I don't thing I could handle that again.” The two laughed and continued along the trail. Over in Ponyville, Applejack was pounding on the library door. Twilight Sparkle had once again locked herself inside to research something that her friends thought... As well as Princess Celestia, who agreed in a formal letter, was just over thinking things that were not worth getting her hooves in a hustle. Spike was running around the library trying to find books that related to the young scholar pony's restless need for answers. Spike turned to her and said, “Twilight, I don't think there's anything strange about a shooting star.” Twilight sparkle turned to him and said in her usual scholar-ish fashion, “A shooting star, no. But this one Exploded before falling into the sea. That's... well, That's just plain strange. Anypony can see that.” Spike said in a tone of surrender, “I don't.” Twilight used her magic to take the book that Spike was holding before he could let go and the two flew in front of the researching pony. The book hovered as she looked at it while Spike crashed into the ground. Applejack finally managed to force the door open, which had been blocked by a bookshelf, of all things. Looking at Twilight, she said, “Well, golly, Twilight. Why'd you go and lock yourself up in here?” Twilight shifted through the book and said, “Sorry, Applejack. I noticed something last night and it's got me worried. I'm just trying to...” They were interrupted as Spike belched out a scroll with the royal seal on it. Turning to Twilight Sparkle, he said, “You got mail.” The two ponies looked at him with an expression that clearly stated he should have worded that differently. Sighing, Twilight said, “Who's it from, Spike?” Looking at it, he said, “It's from Princess Celestia!” v~Sun. April 22 2012~v The two ponies crowded him eager to see what it said. Clearing his voice, Spike said, “To my dearest student. I noticed something early last night that has made me very concerned. I ask that if you see any unusual colts bearing a red star on their head and matching crescent moon on their nose to inform me immediately. This is not a matter to be alarmed, but it is im... impa... iiiiimmmmmm....” Twilight Sparkle and Applejack rolled their eyes and said, “Imperative?” Smiling, Spike said, “Yeah! That. It is that you inform me right away. This is a.... personal matter? What does she mean by that?” Twilight shook her head and said, “I don't know, But something tells me this is bigger then she's telling us.” At the entrance to Ponyville, Fluttershy and Starburst had finally arrived, however, the colt looked like he was about to pass out from the walk. Pinkie Pie headed towards them and Fluttershy said in her usual silent joy, “Here's one of my friends now! Oh Pinkie Pie!!!” The pink pony hopped towards them when she noticed Starburst. Letting out a loud scream, she bolted. Starburst, on the other hand, had taken refuge behind one of the fencepost. Fluttershy looked at him and let out a giggle. “Don't worry, silly. She's just excited.” Starburst said in a terrified voice, “And I'm scared. I hope the others aren't so jumpy.” Fluttershy had to think about that one for a minute. The look of an idea crossed her face and she said, “I know! I'll introduce you to Twilight. She never screams... unless she's upset. I don't think she's upset though.” Starburst came out from behind the post, shaking like a leaf in the wind. Fluttershy smiled and said, “I think she's in the library. I'll show you.” Meanwhile, in the library, Applejack said, “Well, I'm sure that if it's a personal problem, we shouldn't get too worried about it, right?” Sighing, Twilight said, “Night Mare Moon returning after a thousand years was a personal problem too. Remember?” Applejack was about to comment about the two situations being different when Rarity's voice came from outside, saying in terror, “This is an absolute Disaster!” The two ponies went to the door to see what the commotion was about when they saw Rarity had just moved in at full force on the apparently fashion impaired Starburst. “This look!” She said in horror. “No. It will absolutely NOT do. A hooded cape? That is SO last century. You need to let people see your face. And the color. It's completely horrid!” Twilight Sparkle eased the overeager Rarity to the side and said, “Hey Fluttershy. Who's your friend?” Smiling, she said, “Go on. They're friends.” She looked at the colt and saw that he stood there shivering in terror with bugged out eyes. Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rarity and Fluttershy all stood there for a moment before the timid pony said, “Oh yeah... He's not so good with other ponies...” Spike looked at the colt and said, “Hey, Twilight! You should take a look at this.” Pulling the hood back, he revealed that on Starburst's forehead was a golden star and a crescent moon near the nose. Applejack looked at Twilight and said, “By golly, Twilight. That sounds like those marks in the letter. But these ones are the wrong color.” Starburst started coming out of his daze and Applejack laughed. “You're more timid than Fluttershy. You always like that Pardner?” The colt said awkwardly, “Only around people I don't know...” Looking at him, Fluttershy said, “I just remembered. I never asked where you're from.” The colt thought for a minute and said, “Uh... I don't know... I guess really far away. I honestly can't remember.” This answer only brought more confused looks. Sighing, he said, “I don't have any memories before today.” Applejack, Rarity and Fluttershy seemed to take the answer, but Twilight decided certainly look convinced.
  19. Is Shadow the Hedgehog really a hero, or is he a villain? Or is he something else entirely? Personally, I feel he's his own hedgehog, doing what he believes to be right. He saved the planet after trying to destroy it, he saved it again from aliens by following his own heart.
