Be careful with what you wish for
Lyra was cranky. No- cranky would be an understatement. Lyra was ready to tear anypony's head off with her bare hooves if need may be. Last night she went drinking with her marefriend and, after downing cups after cups of hard drinks, she could do naught but massage her temples to keep the migraine at bay.
"Fucking ponies!" she said, blowing a raspberry at nopony in particular. "I bet that if I were a human, this would've never happened." Her trot grinded to a halt and she looked down dejectedly. She felt a pain in her heart and a sudden sadness grabbing hold of her being.
"I wish I was a human..." she muttered forlornly.
Almost at the same time her words escaped her quivering lips, her ears perked up at a sudden jovial screech, most likely coming from Pinkie Pie.
At first, Lyra thought the Pink mare to be pranking her. But after a few seconds of waiting, nothing happened. 'That,' thought Lyra, 'and the fact that Pinkie Pie isn't nowhere near me... hmmm.'

I am alone
Left isolated in this crimson space of nothingness.
Only the darkness keeps me company, but that is not enough.
I've observed happier folk that do not suffer like me- Why am I not one of them?
I wish my rage to consume over my boundaries.
I will soon bare freedom, and smother the galaxy with my bare emotion.
Then I will not suffer alone.
Emotion... will exist no more!
I hate them...
With a gentle breath that coursed through me, bringing along the fires of life and the sharpness of the mind... With such simple gesture, I was. Fear was the first thing that ever coursed through my body. I already knew that he was something to be loved and feared at the same time. I felt my mind breaking, rippling with the knowledge I knew I didn't know. I died. For many millennia, I've been reborn, only to be put out of my misery countless times
The Ballad of Carmine - The Swift
Nopony knew how exactly the conflicts started. Some say that our hero was ashamed by the ways his fellows. Others say it was a much needed swift and cunning act of noble justice. Regardless, they all knew how the battle began. A mighty thunderous roar was heard by everyone in the castle, as they continued praising their vile king. The glorious exclamation echoed through the surrounding forests, shaking off the wintry snow from the oak trees and plywood that surrounded the mighty stronghold.
"I demand you to heed my warnings, and recognize the error of your ways!"
The king stood up from his mock throne, walking upon the backs of his acolytes as they bent over themselves in order to bridge the king's path towards the balcony. Frigid goosebumps crawled through his spine, as he looked upon the sole pony that dared to invade his domain. On the distance stood our hero, coat as white as the pure alabaster snow. His crimson eyes were fixed upon the king, who stood many stories above him

Lyra's heart pounded against her chest. She never felt so afraid her entire life. Moments ago she was chasing after her friend, Bon Bon, playfully galloping through the cold winter snow. Now the mint unicorn found herself plummeting through a deep hole with increasing speed. Her eyes widened in fright as time seemed to slow down. Glancing towards the end of the hole, she saw that the many spiked rocks seemed almost eager, awaiting her arrival. In shock, Lyra realized that she couldn't possibly live through the fall. She began to black out as the bottom slowly grew closer and closer. She forced her lungs into a final shriek of terror before slipping into unconsciousness.

She felt numb. Every inch of her body seemed to burn with a searing pain. Lyra tried to focus but her
