The First Contestant
“FOOL! DO YOU HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO REPORT!?”
“I-I’m afraid not, my Queen.”
The Changeling Queen slammed both her front hooves into the black stone of her throne room, cracking it.
It had been the same story for more than a year now, failed attempt after failed attempt to garner successful amounts of love for the hive. Due to the invasion of Canterlot the ponies had learned many methods to tell when one of her subjects had replaced a pony. They usually escaped, although there had been several reports of changelings failing to report back, likely being captured after being found out.
“Leave me and return to your duties,” Chrysalis commanded.
“Y-Yes, my Queen,” the drone stuttered. He bowed before exiting her chambers, leaving only the Queen and her personal guard.
The Changeling Queen rested on her throne, lost in her thoughts and her anger.
Even more than a whole year later the events of the f

One Week Later…
Celestia yawned, ignoring the drowsiness insisting she go back to bed. It would soon be time to raise the Sun, and as much as she enjoyed a normal sleep pattern after a thousand years of covering for her sister she knew what she had to do. It was her own sense of duty that pushed her to stay awake, as well as the warmth of Luna’s foreleg around her midsection…
Until she realized that she hadn’t slept alongside her sister since she had grown back to her normal size and power, retaking her duties as co-ruler of Equestria. Celestia quickly turned her head to the being lying with her and her eyes widened in shock.
The figure smirked. “Did you sleep well darling?”
That morning it seemed that all of Canterlot, and it maybe even all of Equestria, awoke early to the sound of its Princess shrieking in terror…
Luna groaned, her eyes squinting due to annoyance and tiredness. The Princess of the Night had just fini
Discord's Villain Reform Program Ch.2Discord's Villain Reform Program Ch.2 by shinigamisparda
Months had passed since Discord’s presence had been made known to Ponyville, Canterlot, and eventually all of Equestria. Panic had arisen all over in numerous cities and towns, with Ponyville suffering the worst. Riots had nearly broken out on Nightmare Night once the ponies realized that Princess Luna was in fact not just trying to scare them. If it were not for the volume of her traditional royal Canterlot voice she would never had been able to rein them in over their screams. It was only a few hours later that Princess Twilight Sparkle and the other Elements of Harmony made Discord’s reformation known. Just like she’d expected, nopony really believed her but they had enough faith to believe the members of the Elements had everything under control, seeing as how the were wearing their respective element jewelry on. Still, Ponyville was a powder keg ready to go, just waiting for a chaotic spark to set it off.
Except that didn’t happen. D

Back in Town
It was autumn in Ponyville, the time when the winds blew colder and the nights grew longer, and for nearly all of Equestria this used to put a bit of damper on everypony’s mood, and not only because the cold weather made it harder to be outside and daylight burned quickly. With Canterlot not too far away Ponyville had always had a special connection with the mighty and beloved Celestia, the alicorn Princess of the Sun and essentially Goddess of all ponydom. Because of her alignment with the bright ball of light in the sky, the ponies naturally favored the daytime due to its relation with their wise and benevolent Princess. However, in recent years the night had begun to become popular in Ponyville as well, especially with the foals, due to the rise in popularity of a certain “Princess of the Night.” This was the time of year that was the most active for Princess Luna, ironic considering its association with her formerly terrifying form, the holiday of

Manga Review: Yandere KanojoYandere KanojoManga Review: Yandere Kanojo by shinigamisparda
Yandere Kanojo was released first in Monthly Gangan Joker magazine in May 22, 2009 and is 4-koma (4-panel) style romantic comedy and slice of life series, with the normal 4-panels broken up by bigger frames on occasion. The series has enjoyed some moderate popularity, enough so that it’s up to 10 volumes and still going. An interesting fact is that there are actually two versions of the series, one in print and one online, but most scanlation sites post both, differentiating the two by a .1 or a .5 in the chapter number. Both versions are very similar and though some events are shown in different ways it’s essentially the same for both.
About the Title
The title is actually a play on words as “Yandere” here is not used in its traditional form. For those who “Yandere” is term made from combining the words “Yanderu”, meaning “sick”, and “Deredere”, meanin
'Splosion Man Review'Splosion Man'Splosion Man Review by shinigamisparda
Developer Twisted Pixel released 'Splosion Man in July 22nd, 2009 to the Xbox Live Arcade. The second original IP released by the developer 'Splosion Man is an action and puzzle platformer that revels in it's absurd humor with a difficulty that is as challengingly fun as it is frustrating.
'Splosion Man's story as so simple it might as well has been made for the NES, not to say that's a bad thing. In fact the lack of any intricate plot helps to speed things up to the almost break-neck pace that the gameplay can take.
'Splosion Man himself is an experiment gone wrong in the depths of the massive company Big Science. Rather than breaking out for any desire for revenge or even a desire for freedom he seems to be attempting to escape the facility simply because he refuses to sit still. 'Splosion Man's personality is positively giddy much like a little kid with severe ADHD hopped up on sugar and caffeine, spouting mo
FFIII DS ReviewFinal Fantasy III (DS)FFIII DS Review by shinigamisparda
Final Fantasy III was released in the U.S. for November 14, 2006 for the Nintendo DS and is the only remake to made of the game as of yet. It also the first time Final Fantasy III was released in the U.S. in any form.
Like Final Fantasy: Dawn of Souls, Final Fantasy III DS is a massive step up in terms of graphics, but this time even more so seeing as how it's a DS title. Instead of being equal to what would be on the SNES, FFIII's graphics are more like something you'd see on the Nintendo 64. This means that although the game looks great, there are some noticeable polygons at times. Still, that's pretty damn good for a portable system.
Like FFI, the game retains a very fairy tale like feel through the auditory medium. Once again, this also means you'll encounter a lot of rather bland but still suitable music. Unfortunately, the amou

Friendship Under Fire
“Girls! Spike! Are you ok!?”
The drake and three mare’s vision adjusted, no longer focused on the metal giant lodged in the ceiling like a splinter but rather one spot in particular.
“Twilight! Thank Celestia you’re ok!” Spike called, spotting the violet alicorn peeking her head out the window of the car. His joy was so great he almost jumped out of Rarity’s embrace to run over to her. Almost.
“Of course! What’d you think?”
Spike rolled his eyes in response.
“Never mind that, darling! Free Rainbow and Applejack so we can get out of here!” Rarity called.
“Right!” the Princess responded before jumping out of the machine flying down to the two bound mares. Her aura enveloped the chains holding them and the locks quickly opened, dropping them to the floor.
“Yes!” Rainbow Dash shouted, immediately taking to the air. Applejack, however, immediately slumped to the floor.

Through the Whitetail Woods, a buzzing sound echoed, overpowering the more natural sounds of nature. The buzz came from a pair of wings belonging to one orange-coated pegasus filly. The young girl flapped her small wings rapidly to propel herself along as she raced through the trees. Normally the young filly would bear a confident and cocky grin on her face as she went, but today her face was unnaturally serious.
“Sorry Scootaloo, ah already got some plans with mah sis. She’s showin’ me how ta bake the apple pies so ah can help out more! See ya round!”
The orange filly began to grit her teeth in anger as she beat her wings harder, increasing her speed to reckless levels. Despite her attempts to stop it, her mind continued to wander.
“Sorry, but I’m helping Rarity at Carousel Boutique! I mean, she’s not letting me do much, but I’m getting to help her out with some of her outfits! I’ll let you know if there

The Commander rose up from the floor, groaning and holding his head.
“Where am I?” he asked out loud, observing his surroundings as he rose. “The reactor?” he muttered, looking at the massive glowing tube in front of him.
From behind came a humming noise, the sound of blasters being charged. He turned to see two of the guards holding their blaster pistols at him.
“W-What are you doing?” he asked, confused.
“Don’t move, sir, or we will be forced to fire,” one of them answered.
“Wh-What? What is this? Stand down!” he ordered, but the two guards did not obey.
“Sir, it is in your best interest to-“
The guard was cut off by a surge of power emanating from behind the Commander, who turned around to see the reactor opening. A black mass jumped out and landed in front of the Commander, who scuttled backwards and drew his own blaster, aiming it at the dark blob. The two guards had also shifted their aim towar

“Commander, status report!” Gorrath bellowed as he stood up from the floor, having fallen out of his chair during the impact.
The Commander groaned as he rose from the ground, turning to his small pad. He pressed a few buttons before turning to his leader.
“Sir, it would appear we have suffered some minor damage as something from the portal crashed into us. There was a hull breach and it would appear…” the Commander trailed off as he reexamined his readings.
“What is it?” the Warmaster demanded.
“It seems that something has… boarded us.” The Commander answered.
“’Boarded’? You mean there are intruders on the ship!?”
“It would seem so. Also, there appears to be a strange energy source radiating from the beings.”
“What kind of energy?”
“Unknown, sir. It doesn’t match anything we have on record.”
“What of the prototype?”

Coincidences of Curiosity and Stupidity
“Twilight! Are you coming out of there yet!?”
“Hm?” the violet alicorn responded, still engrossed in her studies.
“Don’t ‘hm’ me, Twilight! How much longer are you going to be in here!?”
Twilight Sparkle looked up from the parchment she was reading at her assistant, standing in the doorway of the study with his arms folded.
“Oh give me a break Spike, it’s not like I have any duties or lessons to attend to today. I know it doesn’t mean much to you but I’m getting to read the notes and journals of Star Swirl the Bearded’s research with my own two eyes!” she said with an enthusiastic smile.
The new Princess had found her return to life in Canterlot to be mixed bag, separated from her friends for long periods of time and having to endure lessons on how to conduct herself as a “proper noble”, but there had been some undeniable boons as well. Tw

“Woo! These ponies are pretty good, huh Tavi?”
“I suppose so.”
“Huh? C’mon, don’t tell me you’re still not diggin’ these tunes?”
Of course I do Vinyl, though I’d never admit it straight to you.
“They’re quite good, yes.”
“I can hear the ‘but’ coming.”
“But… I’m afraid I still have yet to fully appreciate this type of music, I suppose.”
“Aw, C’mon! They’re great! These are the best ones so far!”
“Of course you’d say that.”
“Feh. You’re such a party pooper.”
Vinyl took another long gulp of her mug of beer, letting out another unrestrained sigh of refreshment and gratitude. Octavia meanwhile took a reserved sip of her glass of red wine, savoring the taste in her mouth before swallowing.
Wonderful as always, as to be expected from the Canterlot clubs.

“We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Scott was drained. He was exhausted, both physically and mentally, injured, but more than all that, confused. He should’ve been happy, but the odd foreboding feeling that something was off was something he just couldn’t shake.
What the hell is with this weird setup? The point system was one thing, but this…
Each contestant first had their weight and height checked, then they were asked to give a punch to a machine that recorded and gave a point level to their strength. He knew he’d place low, but surprisingly he didn’t place as low as he thought he would as there were quite a few people who with scores about the same as his, a sparse few actually below his score. But he knew that wasn’t a true indication of one’s power.
