BIO Ledd Mettle
Ledd Mettle
Ledd Mettle is the Eldest son of Icarus Ronald Mettle, who would often shorten his name and go by the moniker of I.Ron Mettle. I.Ron Mettle was the previous Head Forgemaster of the Equestrian Militia, the position that Ledd now fills, in the grand forge of Hephaestus, deep in the underbelly of Canterlot. Unlike his Unicorn Father, Ledd has Taken after his Earth Pony Mother, Glimmering Mettle, And has no horn and limited magic use of any kind. This made it hard to follow his Fathers footsteps, but he Developed many new tools that allow him to do the same work with equal efficiency.
Ledd is about average size for a Stallion, and despite his strength and physical abilities is very lean. His mane is kept very short for manageability at the forges, is a Dark Grey Color, and His Coat is a Lighter Grey. Originally Ledd had blue Eyes, but due partly to an over-exposure to heat from the forges, and an accident with a pot of molten silver, the colors of his eyes have been burned away

Griffon Hammer Throwing
Griffon Hammer Throwing is an exact duplicate of the Human Sport Russian hammer throwing, wherein a Large weighted ball is attached to a cable, which is in turn attached to a Handle gripped by the mouth of the one participating. It is whirled a number of times before being released and launched several hundred feet.
Before it was a sport, Hammer throwing was actually a form of Military defense. Several Griffons would stand atop the wall of a city and would hurl Stones with ropes around them astounding accuracy, with seasoned throwers being accurate to within 3-5 feet at an 80 foot range. Ponies then adopted the same strategy for defense, but even seasoned throwers could only average half the distance of a Griffons throw. It is theorized that this was the earliest version of the Lunar Hammer Weapon that ponies developed, being forced to engage foes at a closer range, resulting in some enemies getting close enough for hoof to hoof combat before a second throw could be made.

Equestrian Combat, armor and weapons
Though Equestria is now a very Peaceful place, it wasn't always that way. And even in these times of Peace there are those who practice combat in the Militia, or for Personal Recreation and Training.
One of the Instruments of War That is Commonplace elsewhere but scarce among Ponies is the Sword. While many Creatures possess the ability and the faculties to handle such weapons effectively, Ponies are simply not built for that type of weapon. Instead the weapons of ponies are found in several other Forms. The Main categories of which are Spears and Lances, Armor Based weaponry, Hoof based weaponry, and scarce Mouth based weaponry.
First and Foremost are the Spear and Lance type Weapons. These are Strapped to the Side of a Pony, or fashioned in a way the base rests on the shoulder and are used by Charging an enemy. This is Showcased in the jousting match between Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash in the Crystal Empire.
Secondly there is the Armor Based Weapon Category. Weapons of this type are

Equestrian Darkness Chapter 5 - Caves
This was Probably the most confusing Moment in Nightshades life, at least that she could recall.
"What do you mean, We?"
Twilight answered for the rest of the present Ponies, "We meaning all of us. We're all going."
"What, To the Cave?" Responded Nightshade.
Applejack spoke next, stating with conviction that "If somepony wants to mess with one of us, they mess with all of us. If somepony wants to Hurt one of us, They hurt all of us. So we all are gonna get right on em and work this out."
Rarity spoke up, "I hardly ever Condone Violence, But whoever was not only willing but intending to put Poor Rainbow Dash through such Torture Deserves at least some sort of Punishment equal to the crime, at least in my mind."
Even Fluttershy Spoke up to voice her mind, Saying Simply, "Normally i'm reluctant for some of the things we do, but when Somepony Hurts one of us, Then its Personal. I say we Find the Big Meanie."
Nightshade was Still Confused. The ease with which these friends jumped into actio

Mimic Items
Mimic Bracelet (Mimic Objects)
A mimic Bracelet or other object, is quite simply an Object made from the Hide of a Mimic. They are Common amongst Hunters for their versatility and durability.
To get Mimic Materials, reclusive breeders will raise 2 or 3 at a time. By the time they are adults they have laid eggs with the Breeder can then Save for later or begin raising as soon as they hatch. The Breeders will keep the Mimic's caged as they Grow, and will force them to change shapes often in order to keep their forms free. After about 3 years the Mimic's will have reached full Size, Which can sometimes be larger than a cow. At which time the Breeder will force them to become an Enormous Pile of Leather Scraps or Other Material, And Will Cast a Spell That Locks the Mimic in that Shape. The Mimic is then removed by Placing it's Essence into a Rock or Stone of some Kind, where the Mimic remains for the Rest of it's Life. The Mimics tend to Be relieved by the Sudden Inability to Change shape

BIO Nightshade
Nightshade BIO
Nightshade Is a Changling, But Is an Exile by self-election and Does not Conform to the Lifestyles of the Swarm. She is one of a very few Changlings that decide that the Regular Pony lifestyle is far more Desirable than the general Parasitic nature of the swarm majority. The Love she Feeds on does not come in anywhere near the amount that most changlings devour in a sitting, but rather comes from the Pure love of others for Her and not somepony she is pretending to be. In this way she remains well nourished and strong, without having to live in a way that she might find objectionable.
Nightshade, Though a Changling, Likes to Retain the Facade of a Unicorn that she Fashioned after the Flower her Name Comes from. The Majority of her Body is a light shade of Purple, the only exception being the Yellow Fur she forms just above her hooves for a few inches, that fade quickly to the light purple. Her mane Begins White at the Base, But Quickly Changes to a Purple that is only ju

Equestrian Darkness Chapter 4 - An E.R.C.
"How on Earth did this all happen?" Nightshade thought to herself quietly. The Past 24 hours had been an adrenaline ride on an emotional roller coaster. She had gone from feeling confident that she would accomplish the goal she'd had for the past year, to literally begging for her life, even if in hindsight the begging probably wasn't necessary. Now she wasn't sure how she felt, Mostly just shocked or caught off guard by how things turned out.
Looking around the room, she thought of the ponies now surrounding their friend Rainbow Dash. While Applejack and Twilight were out searching for some things Nightshade had asked for, the other ponies were trying to comfort their friend with happy memories and stories, while Nightshade spent her energy just trying to keep the poor pegasus pony awake.
Though the other ponies understood the basic concept, Nightshade wondered if any of them Really knew just how badly Rainbow dash had been poisoned. Nightshade was sure that an Evil Renegade Changling

Equestrian Darkness Chapter 3 - Trauma
The Third Day of Heat began like the First 2, With the Only Difference Being the Attitudes of the Ponyfolk. Some Had spent plenty of time at the lake for their liking, and those who did still come to the lake seemed almost reluctant to spend another day In the water. Spike went with the Cutie Mark Crusaders that day to Make sure they stayed out of Trouble as they went around Ponyville.
At around noon, Pinkie Pie made a Comment that if she spent anymore time in the water, she might just grow some gills. By this time, The 5 Pony Friends Had all noticed and been concerned by the absence of rainbow dash. Around 1 they all decided that they needed to go see rainbow Dash and see how she was, for fear she had become ill or hurt. Little did they know that Somepony else had thought the same thing, but with different intentions, and darker expectations. Within Minutes this Pony had Managed to Fly to Rainbow Dash's Home, Whilst rainbows Friends Still Prepared to Journey to the sky. Their Purple M

Chapter 2 - An Unwelcome Guest
It was day two of the Heatwave in Ponyville, and even though it was an intentional Heatwave, Some ponies were already tired of the sun and the lake and decided to try their hooves at staying indoors. Applejack and Rarity were trying the same efforts of the previous day with Applejacks Apple stand and Rarity's Parasols. Most of the Ponies still managed to have a fun and enjoyable time, while a few stayed at the lake only for the sake of the cool water. Twilight, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie all arrived at about the same time as the day before, but Rainbow dash Didn't arrive until a few hours later than the day previous. When Twilight asked if she was okay, Rainbow Dash Said that she was fine, but she Knew that was a Lie.
In reality, Rainbow Dash Wasn't sure if she was Fine. The Last Couple Nights She had Begun Having Nightmares. The First wasn't That Bad, just a little Annoying, but now only 2 days later they were unsettling the Normally Stalwart and Brave Po

Equestrian Darkness Chapter 1 - A Day in the Sun
CHAPTER 1 - A Day in the Sun
It had Been a wonderful couple of Weeks for the Residents of Ponyville, the Weather Beautiful and not a problem to be found. That is until the Everfree Forest Apparently Decided it didn't like such a long period of Pleasant weather. Within a space of 10 minutes the Weather in Ponyville went from Great to Miserable, With Thick Black Storm Clouds rolling in and drenching the small town in torrents of Rain. The Wind thrashed seemingly in anger, The Clouds Roared with Thunder and Lashed out with wicked lightning, while the great waves of rain covered Ponyville and almost caused a flash flood, which would have damaged homes and put many in Danger. But everypony heaved a great sigh of relief when after almost 6 hours it finally stopped and The Cloudcover dissapated to reveal the glorious sun in the waning hours of the day. For the Last half hour of daylight the sun and sky gave a brilliant display of magical colors, one of the most magnificent sunsets that Ponyvi

Wow. Almost 3 years since i've posted anything here.
Where do i even begin

I've made posts long ago, and i'm not sure how up to date they are.
I'd like to update those if i can over the next week or so.
And possibly add some new ones.

I've honestly been significantly more active on tumblr, to the few people i think might be interested in something like that.
I have a blog for just the OC's i have, although it is rather sparse in its content - www.tumblr.com/blog/justledd
(Warning, Some NSFW)
I also do reblogs of art and stuff i like here - www.tumblr.com/blog/leddmettle
(Also Warning, NSFW sometimes)

If anyone here watches me, or is interested in conversation, please feel free to message me here or there!
