Those Who Aim to Please
       Abacus checked his map for the third time in as many minutes. After a two day trip, he could finally see the outskirts of a small town. According to the map, this was Ponyville. There weren’t any other towns in the area, but he wanted to make absolutely sure that he was in the right place. When he was close enough to make out the words, a colorful sign that read ‘Welcome to Ponyville!’ satisfied his concerns.
       The cart came to an abrupt stop. Abacus straightened his glasses and levitated a small bag of bits into the driver’s waiting hoof. Before he could thank him, the taxi sped off and left him sitting in a cloud of dust. He checked his map again, then headed into town.
       The town itself seemed rather quaint, especially compared to the tall towers of Manehattan. Instead of glass and steel, there was wood and thatched straw. He smiled. It wasn’t home, but architecture had always

Magitank - Chapter 2
“We’re getting ready to search Outer Canterlot for survivors.” Captain Pipsqueak poked his head into Greenhorn’s tent. “You’re welcome to come along, if you feel up for it. We need all the help we can get.”
“Sure!” the colt said, jumping out of his cot. He winced as his injured leg hit the ground, but tried to mask it with a smile. “Anything I can do to help.”
“...Alright,” the captain said. “We’re going to take along one of the tanks in case of any trouble. I want you to ride along with Dess inside it since technically you shouldn’t be walking around. We’ll be leaving soon, so get ready.”
Greenhorn followed the captain out of the tent and into the now-bustling camp. It had only been a few hours since they had all fought raiders, but everypony already seemed raring to leave again. He watched as several of them left the captain’s tent.
“Where do you think you’re

Days Gone By
Days Gone By
By: Broznik
Twilight Sparkle’s Journal, Day 1: I’ve only had a diary once before in my life. I can barely remember it, it must have been a long time ago. I never really saw the point of keeping one going lately. Writing weekly reports to the princess and my own memory was always plenty, but this book was a gift from my friends. If it makes them happy, I’d do anything.
Today was the 1004th Summer Sun Celebration, and the four year anniversary of meeting my friends. There was a massive celebration in Ponyville, led by no other than the premiere party pony, Pinkie Pie. She really outdid herself this time. I’ve been to the celebration in Canterlot, but even that couldn’t outdo the party here. Rarity helped her with decorating, and the entire town was covered in ribbons, flowers, and balloons. Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy put a giant “1004” in the sky with clouds and rainbows, and Dash even got the Wonderbolts to appear! Applejack brough

Magitank - Chapter 1
   I just don’t know what went wrong. Everything used to be so simple. It wasn’t entirely sunshine and rainbows, but it was happier. Better, even. At least until Ponyville. The big turning point. It’s funny, really. There wasn’t anything special or notable about that little town, save for some surprisingly quality cider. Yet everything changed after it was destroyed. The Purge started, the war started, and everypony got really good at killing each other. At least we had her majesty. At least we had the Empress, probably the only good thing that came from Celestia’s death. Shards, maybe it all started then, when she came into power. She tried so hard to bring peace. Ah well, that’s all been almost thirty years or so past and then the meteors came and wiped out every reason to care about this history. None of it even matters now. It’s just as well, maybe the meteors were supposed to be some twisted chance at a fresh start. Some excuse to start

Aftermath (MLP Fic)
"Please, let me find somepony... Please, let me find somepony... Please..."
The unicorn colt climbed as best he could up the hill. It was a relatively small, gentle slope, but to him, it felt like trying to climb Mount Everfree. Dust filled the air, making him choke on every breath. He was bleeding from a dozen cuts and scrapes, and he hadn't slept in days.
When the colt finally reached the summit of the hill, his face fell. The once bustling city of Outer Canterlot was now nearly indistinguishable from the rest of the land around it. Skeletal remains of a few buildings sprang up from the otherwise featureless wasteland. Ash covered everything, painting everything he could see a dull, lifeless grey. Even the clouds were affected, all but completely concealing the sun.
All of this paled in comparison, however, to what the colt saw even further in the distance. Just behind the city, Canterlot mountain stood, holding the famous capital in its peaks. Or rather, it should have. All that was

A conversation with a friend that led to a rather insightful metaphor.

Broznik: another lovely disappointment due to acorns
Insightful Maddening Insanity: It's really more of a case of is it the Acorns or the Squirrel that came first
Broznik: it was the tree
Broznik: and we cant question the tree
Broznik: because it gives us so much
Broznik: that we wouldnt have a base
Broznik: nor a ground to stand on
Broznik: without it
Broznik: but then
Broznik: it gives acorns
Broznik: the bitter fruit
Broznik: but how can we show our distaste?
Broznik: we cant blame the tree
Broznik: that gives us so much
Broznik: so we blame each other
Broznik: and in doing so
Broznik: the tree becomes the master of chaos
Broznik: watching the tiny people beneath fight and argue
Broznik: because only the squirrels can appreciate the acorns
Broznik: but we all appreciate the tree
Broznik: its just that now
Broznik: we have trouble appreciating it BECAUSE of the acorns
Broznik: we knew that the tree had to provide for the squirrels
Broznik: but we wish that it could provide for us as well
Broznik: but it was never meant to provide for us
Broznik: it's goal was to help the squirrels
Broznik: we only saw beauty in it
Broznik: and enjoyed the trees other gifts
Broznik: but we all knew the acorn was coming
Broznik: we just didnt want to accept it
Broznik: so the real question is
Broznik: now that the acorn has been given
Broznik: can we still appreciate the tree?
Broznik: can we still appreciate the others that can enjoy the tree?
Broznik: or do we turn our hatred toward the tree and the squirrels?

Completely nonsensical to everyone except me, but I wanted a copy of it somewhere for myself.

I'm on Siel. Technically, I still have my account and characters and the like, but I just don't play anymore.

Bought the game at launch and got really interested, but it didn't really hold my interest. I'm not so much into MMOs at the moment.

Funny enough though, the screenshot for my profile pic was actually from the beta.
