FridayThis Random Comedy Idea Is Up For Adoption (But I'm giving it to somebody who is really REALLY good)14 comments · 110 views
This adoption is gonna be a bit different from my previous adoptions. For one thing, this focuses on one story and one story only. It's a humor/random/crackfic/whatever idea that I got and I've shown a lot of people I know. They loved it, and said this could be a really big thing. Problem is, I don't have time to do it. I have too many fic on my plate to deal with this. But I do want to see it come to life.
This idea I will only give to somebody who not only wants it, but has experience with funny fics, writes well, and has free time. It has to be somebody experience and if nobody shows up I'm gonna look for people to give this idea too (You can even suggest to other people to try and adopt it from me if you think they can be up for the task). So if I feel your not up to writing this fic, I won't give it to you.
Here is the basic plot:
The idea is that Twilight sought to experiment with the mirror pool a bit more. So she had a clone of her made and gave it basic functions. However, it screws up and accidentally killed her. When she wakes up she find out she's still in her body and everything is fine, but she goes outside and finds the town in a state of mourning, for her. She spies on her own funeral where she sees herself in a casket. She can rule out being a ghost since she still feels pain and enters the ceremony shocking everypony. At first they accuse her of being a changeling, but in truth, she realizes she's in her clone's body.
Celestia and Luna do some scans and it's indeed Twilight with the same mind and soul, but her corpse is still there. She then realizes that her soul and mind must have sought out the clone instead. Everypony is just thankful she's alive (however, they continue with the funeral, burial and partly by the demands of Pinkie since she worked so hard for everything to be made and don't like seeing party stuff get to waste, plus Twilight admits she always wanted to go through her own funeral).
Twilight theorizes that the clones from the mirror pool can allow ponies souls and minds upon death to travel to their living bodies like beacons and take over. Rainbow Dash pretty much says that the clones can be a way to prevent their real deaths. Twilight says she wants to experiment, but finds it too dangerous and decides to leave things as they are. Rainbow, naturally, figures she can abuse this by doing really dangerous stunts, and clones herself. She manages to do a really dangerous stunt that ends up killing her, but sure enough, she wakes up in her clone's body and crashes her own funeral, proving, much to Twilight's anger, that her theory was real
Naturally, when everypony learns they can cheat death, they abuse the hell out of the mirror pool
And from there the fic goes in whatever crazy direction the writer wants. If you are interested in doing this fic or you know somebody who might be good for it, please mention it. Remember, I will not give this to first come first serve. I will give it to whoever I feel can do this justice. And I will assist in helping it made.
Hope I find somebody good for it.

There is a problem growing not just in the Western World, but for our generation: depression. Over the past few months I've learned a lot of things from some friends of mine that scare me and I felt I need to do something about it. So I've decided to post this blog post. I'm sure we've all seen blog posts of people who are suffering from depression, or are having struggles in their lives and they can't explain why. Sure, sometimes we take everything in the internet not that seriously, but sometimes those people are real and they are asking for help. I myself have never had to go through depression, but I have had both family members and friends with it.
The No.1 psychological disorder in the western world is Depression and it's hitting us young adults around the ages of 25-29 and, slowly, it's even going lower to that of teens in high school. I know at least ten or so people alone who either have this disorder, or know somebody who has this disorder both mild and serious. It ruins lives and most of us aren't aware of who may or may not have it.
If you know somebody who has depression, or you yourself may be depressed, the first and foremost thing is to see somebody and get on therapy. You may also want to look at sites or groups that are willing to help people with depression such as http://www.beyondblue.org. and http://www.dbsalliance.org. There are also sites where you can donate money into depression research.
While I am no professional myself, some well known signs if people are having depression are the following:
You can’t sleep or you sleep too much
You can’t concentrate or find that previously easy tasks are now difficult
You feel hopeless and helpless
You can’t control your negative thoughts, no matter how much you try
You have lost your appetite or you can’t stop eating
You are much more irritable, short-tempered, or aggressive than usual
You talk less to your family and friends
You’re consuming more alcohol than normal, taking drugs, or engaging in other reckless behavior
You are causing self-harm to yourself
You have mood swings from happy to anger to sad and you can't control them.
You have thoughts that life is not worth living (seek help immediately if this is the case)
Any of these signs may be signs of depression or possibly other mental illnesses that you are experiencing too. Nevertheless, if you are somebody who has these signs, or knows somebody who has them. You need to seek help ASAP.
It also helps to talk about it, either with your friends, family, doctors, therapists, clergy, and more to talk about your feelings and seek professional and medical help. Nobody wants to lose somebody to depression and it's up to us to help make a difference. Spread the word through your communities, join or set up fundraisers, or even write or draw about depression to send a message. Even something as this blog post may help save a life.
And I pray that one day we'll be able to do that.

And then the shouting began. They sang the name of their master. Their ruler. Even their god in some ways. To Shining Armor, it was a name he wanted to see on a tombstone.
“Sombra! Sombra! Sombra!”
And then, with one last bestial cry, they charged.
