Little Shadow DarinThere was once a boy named Darin. He was a quiet boy, and usually played with his Pokemon friends, though he wasn't a trainer yet and the Pokemon were from the forest behind his home. But Darin was quite an unusual boy, in that the Pokemon he considered his best friend was a Duskull, who had been given the nickname Hikaru, because it would always glow slightly whenever Darin was afraid. Darin's parents didn't mind, seeing that their son was happy to play with Pokemon, and the duskull looked after him when they played together, and had been alowed to live with them,
But there was one rule that Darin and Hikaru were always told to follow. "Never go into the forest. There are Pokemon there who would not hesitate to cause you harm." Said Father. Darin and Hikaru always followed this rule, as they would often see strange pokemon in the forest.
One day, Darin and Hikaru went inside as it started to rain, and were heading towards Darin's Father's study, where they were allowed to play if it r
Tomorrow, What Day Will It Be?You probably don't remember this story. But believe me, friend, we have both been through it.
But I don't blame you for forgetting...after all, it's been one thousand years.
I awoke that morning and looked out over the world, wondering what kind of day it would be. I often did that, think about the days...but then again, I did so much sleeping I didn't often see sunlight, only the moon. I saw smoke in the distance, and pondered why someone would build a fire so far out in the country. Then I looked closer, and saw something strange. The usual buildings weren't made of stone or other easy-to-find materials. These seemed to be made of metal. Being as curious as I was, I flew over to see what had happened to the village I once so loved to visit in my waking hours.
I glided between the strange structures that populated the now huge village. Perhaps they'd found other ways to help the village grow? But if that was so, why did the outlaying countryside look so worn? I saw people I didn't
Oh, How Long it's Been...Oh, how long it's been.
I never thought I would live to see these same stars, in this same sky that I was named after...it almost overwhelms me.
When I set the pieces of creation in these worlds, and so foolishly ran away when the darkness came, I never imagined that today, of all days, would be so full of both nostalgia and heartbreak. While it is true that, yes, we are all together, I fear our time in that world was too short. It was all my fault. When the darkness appeared and our worlds were thrown into chaos, I left them behind to fend for themselves, too afraid for my own life. My logic was flawed, and I think I will always be remembered as a coward.
But now that we are a part of this world, I feel like my old self. That young dragon who, upon waking up in a world unfamiliar, helped that world to grow. I feel like from here, a part of the world, I can help it live, and I intend to do just that.
After everything I put this world through, I am glad that we could all reach the end t
I Still RememberI still remember.
Even now, almost a thousand years later, when the stars no longer shine as bright, and the moon seems to cast less of a glow on the world.
But I'm rambling. I suppose that's all there is to do now. Up here, in the wide expanse of the starry sky. We used to dream of being here, and watching our world grow. Then one day those dreams came true.
But dreams aren't always as amazing as you think they will be.
I suppose it does sound cliche, and I apologise for that. Though of course, our whole lives have been cliche. I group of dragons, shadows, phoenix' going out to stop an approaching darkness and saving the world. Back then, when I was a part of that darkness.., I would have given anything to stay with it, to stay brave and powerful. These days, now that I have been with the light for so long...I pray that I don't have to go back.
It is strange, isn't it? How you can be so focused on something that when you give up, it almost seems a waste of all the time you spent
Wait And See (Smile, Smile, Smile)
Light. That was the first thing Pinkie Pie saw that day. To her, it was just a normal day in Ponyville. To everypony else...it only seemed that way.
Waking up, Pinkie was confused when her vision was blurry, but soon chalked it up to just her being still sleepy. What confused her most was the fact that, if only for a few moments, she could see nothing but a bright, white light. She was relieved when the outlines of ber bedroom in Sugarcube corner appeared, and forgot about the light soon enough. Yawning, Pinkie Pie turned to her per alligator, Gummy. "Morning, Gummy. " said Pinkie, sleepily. Strangely, Gummy continued sleeping. Pinkie chose not to wake him as, for some reason, she felt like he could use the extra energy his still sleeping would provide, though he usually didn't do much.
Pinkie turned to the window, getting ready for the gorgeous morning ahead of her. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and there wasn't a cloud in the sky...but then Pinkie looked outside.
Not caring about who would survive.
We all put our lives on the line today.
I suppose one survivor outweighs the others.
I cried out.
I ran faster towards freedom.
I knew they needed me.
But fear takes hold of all of us.
The monster woke up,
All thanks to me.
I was speaking about immortality.
I suppose I always did like tests.
Would I survive?
I wasn't sure, but I knew...
If I ran away now,
It would be a certainty.
The monster roared.
It moved for my friends,
Snatching them up
In its claws.
Spike tried to fight it,
But the spell to save him backfired.
Only a monster remaines,
And only a monster would win.
I tried to save them.
I really did, but no spell would help.
I refused to give up, however.
For my friends, who were fighting with all they had.
But I was so scared.
I didn't know if my friends would survive.
They all put their lives on the line today.
But I was the only one who could survive.
So I ran.
The Show That Watches Back: A Futurama Fan Report
A simple show that, for many is a comedy at heart, but for others is a comedy with a heart.
The year 1999 proved a turning point in animated comedy, with The Simpsons continuing to dominate the airwaves with its many characters and memetic material, and the rise of Family Guy starting a rivalry that only the fans can explain completely. But another comedy appeared this year, and with it came a new twist on the Comedy and Sci-fi genres.
I'm sure you all know about Futurama's infamous cancellations and subsequent returns to the airwaves, but here I would like to show you just why Futurama has been saved so many times.
Firstly, Futurama is truly a smart show. Coming up With a new formula for mind-switching aside, it's not just the fact that it uses science to such comedic effect. Futurama is smart because, in between the science and comedy, and the normal and outgoing characters, is a heart. At its center, Futurama has made many a fan and non-fan cry. I'm sure everyone kno
MLP FIM: Storm Cloud'I can see them, mommy'
'That's good, Storm Cloud'
'...Mommy, why are there stars?'
'To light up the night sky, dear.'
'Then...when I make my storm clouds,
Do I send the stars away?'
'Of course not, dear. The stars are always there.'
"Storm Cloud, you've been brought to this court because the storms you make are getting out of control. I understand it's hard to control them, but if they continue this way, we have no choice but to stop you living in cloudsdale, for all our sakes." Explained judge spring. "I'm sorry, judge spring, but I can't control those storms. It was all because of a storm that I got these powers, which sounds sort of ironic considering these circumstances." Replied storm Cloud. "I'm sorry, Storm Cloud, but your storms put everypony in danger. You can't stay here unless you learn to control them." Replied judge spring. "I understand, judge spring. " answered Storm Cloud, walking out of the court and out into the cold air. His dark gray coat and
