Facilities primarily are for protecting the public from the entities, Broadsword ( zitoisneato : art blog) but errors are made. We hope this answers your questions, Shadow Protector ( askshadowprotector : mod blog), Zippomoon (empty), austrianbrony (mod blog), and Starfall Leyline ( ask-starfall : awesome mod blog who should totally art more).

We do have a copy of the Necronomicon, Night Reign ( nightreign : mod blog), but it is Canterlot property. For the record David ( discordeddavid : RP blog), fighting a tree rat involves lots of biting; Sir Pendragon less so.

The security varies: some entities are allowed liberties, Aionis Finsternis ( aionisfinsternis : mod blog? ), while others need safeguards, malum-necesse (mod blog). The first rule of Luna’s training is “Watch where your hooves go”, askblazesong (mod/RP blog).

Finally, we apologize for your sister being unable to touch the statues, Silver Quill (asksilverquillandblueberrytart : inactive blog), but it was for her own safety.

The Firebug walked around town, their face hidden by the filtered mask they wore connected to the oxygen tank they wore on their back, the fireproof hoodie further hiding their identity. “He told me to come to this town, but he forgot to mention where exactly he’s hiding out. Damn doc…” Firebug spoke to themselves, looking around carrying a heavy duffel bag on them. “He better have lots of stuff to burn, or I’ll find my own….”

honestly, this is my Pyro OC as a pony, But i like her enough to be a Pony OC too haha.

Her name is Firebug, shes like an innocent villain really. she loves to make her beautiful flames but in turn she ends up causing forest fires and lots of other mayhem! Shes not malicious and is kind of oblivious to the trouble shes causing.


Never fear, Miss Emerald (draw blog), GB (draw blog), and Stalky (reblog blog), we are quite capable of tracking down the suspects. Thank you, Commander (draw blog) and you will find the relevant report is enclosed (Night Vanguard, draw blog). You can rest, Questioner (NSFW reblog blog), the dangerous Wild Card (PG-13 voice blog of awesome) was captured non-lethally.

Pyrrhocorid Bugs (Pyrrhocoridae, Hemiptera)

Pyrrhocoridae is a family of Hemipteran true bugs with more than 300 species world-wide. A few are important crop pests. Typically they are brightly coloured and many fall under the name of firebugs or the cotton stainers because their red bodies get crushed along with the cotton they eat when it is harvested, and these stains are difficult to remove. Their feeding mechanism also cuts the fibres and hence affects the growth of the cotton ball.

Chapter 3Flickering Flames (part 2) Coffee wasn’t exactly the term Steve would have used to describe his time with Bucky. It was more like coffee followed by a tour of Steve’s favorite bakeries, lunch then a walk around the city. So coffee wasn’t exactly the correct term. Bucky didn’t seem to mind, and Steve sure didn’t.     ”I should probably take Cap home before he starts nibbling at my leg,” Bucky said with a chuckle after the thousandth knickknack shop.     ”Yeah, I get it,” Steve said quietly trying to hide his disappointment and, embarrassingly, a little jealousy. They both stood awkwardly in a way where it was to close to be just friends, but not close enough to be in a relationship. Steve looked up when he heard Bucky clear his throat.     ”You know,” he started taking a short breath, ” you could come over. If you want,” he added quickly. Steve could feel his heart beating in his chest, like it was going to burst from excitement.     ”Yeah, okay yes, I would like that very much,” Steve managed his face felt like it would break, he was smiling so big.     ”Great, come on then,” they started walking and it wasn’t long before they were there, Steve was surprised to learn Bucky only live fifteen minutes from his apartment. Steve was giddy, he was trembling with nerves, and he was trying really hard not to make a fool of himself. Once outside Bucky’s door though, he was suddenly panicked. Steve’s palms started to sweat, and he could feel his knees turn to Jell-O.     ”So here it is, sorry its a bit of a mess…” Bucky left Steve standing in the door, Cap ran off to some back room, and Steve grew more anxious by the second. Half way to the kitchen Bucky seem to finally notice that he was missing something. He turned and looked back at Steve with a smile that could kill.     ”You coming or what,” after a moment of hesitation Bucky saw the problem, “Ah, I see you’re nervous about the whole ‘Come over to my place’ thing I sprung on you, I get it. You don’t have to stay, I completely understand,” Bucky shuffled awkward not looking at Steve who was staring open mouthed at him. Steve started to shake his head, then realized Bucky couldn’t see him.     ”No, no, I uh, I’m just really awkward, I want to stay, but I’m just…” Steve let out a frustrated huff, “Look, I’m not going anywhere.” He could feel Bucky move  to his side, and lean in close to his ear.     ”Then come in,” Steve could feel a shiver run up his spine at Bucky’s voice in his ear, and warm breath on his neck. He felt Bucky intertwine their fingers and pull him into his living room. He led him to the couch, and they sat, knees touching.     ”So, today was nice,” Bucky said his arm coming around to rest on Steve shoulders.     ”Yeah, it was,” Steve said his voice barely over a whisper.     ”Want to watch some television?” Bucky asked him, and Steve just nodded dumbly. Steve could feel the rumbling of Bucky’s laughter as he pulled Steve closer to him and flipped on the TV. There wasn’t anything on but crappy reality shows, but that didn’t stop them from watching Keeping up with the Kardashian until 3am. Then when Steve tried to leave to go home, Bucky convinced him that being out this late at night wasn’t safe and the only logical solution was for Steve to stay the night, and sleep on the couch with Bucky. Steve agreed of course because who could argue with Bucky Barnes.
