I'm an Australian brony who likes reading stories about magical talking horses. Deal with it. Oh yeah, and sometimes I write stuff, too.

A thousand years ago, the legends tell of a battle between the princesses of Sun and Moon. These tales are true, but fail to speak of the vast armies that were also vying for the upper hoof in that war. This is the account of one such army.


Based on the poem Dulce et Decorum est by Wilfred Owen. Written as an English assignment to prove I can both write ponies and do schoolwork. Apologies applied liberally to all who have any respect for true Art, whom I may have offended. Feedback and/or flaming appreciated.

I liked it a lot. First time I read something based of Owens work in this sense. Maybe do High Flight or other famous poems. Cannot wait for more. :yay:

i know that one!

the whole one goes: do not fall of the old lie. "dulce et decorum est pro patria mori". it is sweet and honorable to die for ones country

2196892 I dunno if I'll be doing any more famous poems; this was my English assignment and writing serious stuff isn't my strong point. In fact, only recently have I been able to write something moderately worthwhile. (Soon, very soon it shall be released...) Anyhow, I don't think doing famous poems is a good idea, because I'll never be able to do them justice. Although... Perhaps throwing me a watch may leave you pleasantly surprised.
Either that or horribly disappointed, but still!
