Reviews My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Published - Oct 14 2011 Teen Titans (TV Series) Published - Oct 23 2011____________________________________RecommendationsThe AmbageI can't get too far into the history of how Velox's "The Ambage" got started, because I don't remember it all. Basically a while back a member who's name I forget, started a Writers Club for BZP. It was successful for a time, but started to fall in activity. Velox however, striving for a solid writing community, decided to recreate the club. He failed.But Velox wouldn't give up so easily, and this frontier tried again and again when others wouldn't, until The BZPower Author's Guild was started and after gaining support, became The Ambage. It is highly creative and organized well with fellow Authors, notably complemented by 55555's Write Off's Club. I'm a proud member, and if you're interested, join up! =DAmbage Achievements and Rank*coming soon*Libraries and AuthorsThis list will be constantly updated, as more and more writers I find on this site. There are some marvelous authors here with incredible ideas. Totally check these guys out. I couldn't write the same without them.*coming soon*

Heh, I only just saw that you had this. =P Ah, so many good stories - so many for me to read and re-read, too. Return will always be one of my favorites, because it's so heartwarming at the end it seems like. =] Nonetheless, I suppose I need to read more of your stories, especially the epics, lol.

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
slipped away...

Yeah that is a bummer. And unfortunately I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to repost all these stories anytime soon. :/ Thanks for the comment though Zar. :3

Hats off to the true Library Master. :) I read "Embracing the Negative". That's a pretty neat idea, Mata Nui creating the Makuta to give the Matoran a choice. I don't know...you almost give Mata Nui too much credit. Oh well, really neat story with unique concept anyway.

Oh hey thank you very much. That was one of my older stories, I'm glad you took the time to read it. I can't promise you how the quality was in that one. ^_^Just updating here for a new Epic I'm co-authoring with Zo'Tomana. Hope anyone wandering around can check it out. It's called Second Chance, the link will be above, and for a while in my signature.

Okay, this is how I picture a cozy chair. Do I win? Also, this is a placeholder for my thoughts on 'To Soar', which I have printed out in front of me. You didn't repost it, by chance, did you?

Stellaluna tried to do the same. But she was not as graceful. How embarrassing!

You know that was the only CoT story I didn't repost. It was my first one and I was like "aaaah it's probably fine if this doesn't appear again." :BBut I mean, I probably should repost it. It's a pain if someone read it and was logged off. Thanks for reading it btw Aderia! I'll have it reposted soon? =)
