  1. Chapter 1: Deep Below A few months after Frisk saved the underground, and a few months after the defeat of the Maelstrom, Stickman, Jewel, Skye, and Skystar were busy taking some time off. They suddenly get a distress signal from a different world. "We should probably go check it out." Jewel said as she looked over at Stickman. "Agreed. C'mon, let's grab our gear and head out." Stickman said as he grabbed the fabled Pencil Sword. In case you didn't know, Stickman is a gold haired hoodie-wearing Stickian who was once a macaw. Jewel is his sister, and she's a female Blue Macaw that only has a desire for freedom. Her real life species is called the Spix's Macaw. Skye is a Cockapoo (Mix of Cocker Spaniel and poodle) who's a daredevil pup. Skystar is the princess of Seaquestria/Mount Aris. All 4 have had many adventures together and fought evil as well. They went to the teleporter, and teleported to the distress signal, which was the Underground. Once there, everything was silent... not a good sign. Stickman, Jewel, Skye, and Skystar are all on alert as they head down to the Underground. Once they hit Hotland, they get out of the elevator. They then look around. "Stickman... is this... the underground?" Skystar asked Stickman as she looked back at Stickman, scared. "It... is, but I never expected it to be so... quiet." "Agreed. We'd best be on our guard." Stickman said as he took out the Pencil Sword. "Let's take a look around." They then walk around Hotland, unusually quiet for... the Underground, of course. They then hear something. "It's coming from that... building over there!" Jewel said as they all look at the location of the sound. "Then let's head inside." Stickman said as they head inside the building. TO BE CONTINUED IN CHAPTER 2...
  2. Deep within the Underground, a new threat emerges after Frisk saves the day. Stickman, Jewel, Skye, and Skystar head to the underground to find out who's behind this mess and put an end to it. But what they see there might change everything... Chapter 1: Deep Below -Done Chapter 2: Meeting Sixbones and Inkmess -Coming soon Chapter 3: Revealing the truth Chapter 4: Fight for freedom Chapter 5: Into the Amalgam Fortress Finale: Separation Tune into the tags to see each chapter as they come out, and I can't wait to finally write all 6 chapters here on MLPForums. Here we go!
  3. This is the main story that I've been working on, and I finished re-writing the early chapters recently as the quality wasn't quite on par with my more recent writing. I tried mixing in a few humorous scenes to keep the fic from being too dark, but it's still not exactly a happy story. There isn't much fighting until the last few chapters, but hopefully that's not too disappointing. It's almost 85k words long, and parts two and three are going to be about the same, so keep that in mind if large reads aren't your thing. Anyway, here's the synopsis from FiMFic. I think it's fine to post this here as long as I don't link directly to the story, but someone let me know if it's not and I'll edit the post. It's rated M, so you'll need to turn off the maturity filter on Fimfiction to view the story. My account is linked in my signature here, so you can find it from there.
  4. Epilogue I sat in my office, feet up and resting on my desk as I nursed a glass of whiskey in my magic aura, surveying my office. "I used to be the top detective, the best in Equestria. Aristocrats and Bureaucrats alike would all come to me to solve their mysteries. I had such a high intuition, I could solve such mysteries within a day or two." I grunted and snorted through my nostrils "That was until the events that took place two years ago."Chapter One Friday, January 21st, year of Celestia 1920I was sitting at his desk, writing up the report of a rather peculiar case, when the letter slid under the crack ofmy office door. Without even getting up, I used his magic to lift the letter up and open it."Detective Nocturne, I am writing to ask you for your assistance. I cannot tell you via this letter, nor can I come to your office, please come to, 23 Link Avenue, Canterlot at your soonest available. I will tell you more when you are there.Sincerely, A hopeful client"I snorted a little after reading the letter "Canterlot? Perhaps another missing silver spoon case" I think to himself as I looked at my calendar, "All clear, guess with the slow intake, I could take a trip up there" I sigh "Should solve it within a day or so" I say to myself before downing the rest of my whiskey and getting up, stretching my back.After packing my bag and shrugging into my coat and scarf, I put on my hat and walked out of my office, locking the door behind me. As I passed my boss's office, I slips my job card under the door, alerting my boss that I would be leaving Manehatten and didn't know when I would be back.Exiting the building that housed the agency I worked for and entered into the driver's side of my black Cadillac and begun the drive to Canterlot.The drive to Canterlot took nearly half the day, and then another three hours to get to the address mentioned in the letter. I had then parked just outside of the mansion that spanned across a couple hundred acres. Exiting my vehicle, I stretch my back once more and checking that my Colt New Service revolver was holstered, I would then walk through the large wrought iron gates that opened up to the path that lead towards the mansion.Arriving at the large double doors, possibly made of dark oak wood, I lifted my hand and grasped the large iron knocker and knocked on the door, expecting to either be greeted by an elderly servant or for the doors to just creak open into dead darkness, as cliche as it was in my mind. What greeted me as the doors opened, how-ever, was not what I expected.As the doors swung open, I was greeted by the well lit entrance hall, and standing there, was a sight to behold. Standing there, was none other than Diamond Cutter, the only daughter and heiress of the Mason family fortune and business. She was absolutely stunning. Long, slim legs that could go on for mile, a slim yet slender body with curves in all the right places, long flowing nut brown mane and tail with streaks of pink and purple, and her eyes, the bluest eyes I had ever gazed into, they were so clear, so pure, more so than the purest of diamonds in all of Equestria. I had to cast a subtle calming spell on myself to ground myself back in reality as I could have gazed into those blue pools that were her eyes for the rest of my life.With a cough to clear my throat, I had begun to speak "Miss Cutter, I'm De.." I begun but she then, with her soft, tender voice, cut in "Detective Nocturne? Oh thank the stars, please do come in, I'll explain in a bit" she says, leading the way into the mansion, and I, a warm blooded stallion, followed without second thought.We soon arrived at the even more well lit entertainment room, where a roaring fireplace was lit and there were plenty of book shelves and plush sofas and armchairs. Diamond soon gestured for me to sit, and not wanting to be rude, I sat in one of the offered armchairs. "Where do I begin?" she asks as she pours the two of us a glass of whiskey each, and whiskey being my drink of choice, I of course accepted. "You should perhaps start from the beginning, ma'am" I say in the most gentle tone I could muster.Diamond nodded and sat down opposite me, sipping on her whiskey. "As you must know by now, I am Diamond Cutter, the only daughter and heiress to my father, Quartz Mason's fortune and business" she starts and closes her eyes, "As you well know, my family have been stone masons for decades, and we are the best in the business" she says, opening her eyes and looking right at me with those blue pupils of hers, "Father would often go away, to other cities and states for his work, and at the times he would stay for a bit longer as a break, he would always let me know" she says, sighing very softly. I wanted to reach out and hold her hand to comfort her, but I minded my place and waited for her to continue. "But this time, it was different, he had let me know he would go to some island off the coast of Baltimare, he didn't tell me why he was going there, only that he would be back in a month or two." she says and sips some more on her whiskey "That was four months ago, and he hasn't returned, nor has he sent me any letters telling me he was staying longer" she says, "I fear he may have run afoul of someone or something there, please Detective, my father isn't one to abandon me and his business, you must find him, I'll do anything for you." Diamond pleaded with me, playing at the strings of my heart and my better nature.Chapter Two My eyes had been lowered, doing my best to not gaze upon the beauty that was before me, but as Diamond had finished telling me of her predicament, I looked up, only for our eyes to meet and I felt her look of worry and her gentle, soft, tone, tug at the strings of my heart.With a gulp of my whiskey and another subtle calming spell on myself, I pretend to be in thought, swirling the remnants of my whiskey in my glass before I look up once more, already having had made up my mind. "Alright miss Cutter, I will do this" I say to her, giving her my best confident smile "I will need to see your father's study and workplace how-ever, in case he left any clue as to where he had gone and why" I say to her, noticing she had finished her whiskey and was waiting for me."O-of course Detective, please follow me" Diamond says, waiting for me to stand up before leading me over towards where her father's study was. She took out a set of keys and unlocked the door "Father had forbade me to enter unless it was an emergency" she says softly to me.I give her an awkward chuckle as I look at her "I think this would classify as an emergency, ma'am" I say to her before I walked into the study. I looked around, and instead of what I would see in most studies, Quartz's study was immaculate. The walls were lined with bookshelves, and those that weren't had either photos or maps of the cities and states of Equestria. On his desk, were letters, forms and charters piled in separate piles, neatly."Thank you miss Cutter, I will find you should I need you" I say to her, as I had noticed her unease of being where she had last seen her father. After she left, I had begun poking around, looking for anything out of place, glancing over various letters and charters, but of course they were all legalese and full of terms that my mind couldn't grasp.Shaking my head, I put the letters and charters back where I found them and had sat down on the plush office chair that was at the desk, rubbing my temples, this was going to be harder than I initially thought, and I had already committed myself to the task.A sigh of resignation escaped my lips as i sat up from my slumped position, and that is when I noticed it, a solitary envelope, half opened and looking out of place as it had seemingly been hastily put back on the desk. "Must have been mixed up with the others and fell out" I think to myself, as I pick the letter up and begin reading it. It did indeed entail a very high profile job at the small island of Darkmoore, a small inconspicuous island off the coasts of Baltimare.Darkmoore, was, unassuming, only those in the know, would know that the island's main income was from the export of oil. I sighed, now knowing where I needed to go to, I stood up from the chair, that had until then, offered its comfort to my tired body. After hastily writing down the co-ordinates, I put the letter back and made my way out of the office and looked for the lady of the house.It took me no time at all, as I found her once more in the entertainment room, sipping on another glass of whiskey, and smoking a cigarette. I quietly clear my throat, alerting her of my presence. She looks up "Detective? What have you found?" she asks me and I give her, once more, my best confident smile, though I was of course, of no certainty that I would find her father, "Your father had been offered a very high profile job in the island of Darkmoore" I say "I have the co-ordinates and will set sail by the beginning of the next morning" I assure her, before placing a hand on the head of the sofa she was sitting on "I will find him" I tell her, though it was a lie, as I had no clue as to where to start.Diamond looked up at me once more, and I could tell she had been crying. I pitied her, such a young, beautiful mare to have to go through something like this, it was inconceivable. "My going rate is a down payment of 10,000 bits, to cover expenses such as travel, food and accommodation" I say to her, as she nods and writes down a check for the amount, "Thank you, I will ask for the rest after I have closed the case" I say to her, as she nods and then gets up, showing me out of the mansion.As I once more, walked through the gates, I looked back at the mansion and felt a pang of pain in my heart. I gave her false hope, something I loathed, but what else could I have done? Told her that the chances of finding her father, let alone finding him alive were slim to none? I couldn't bring myself to do it, and so with a heavy sigh, I once more got into the driver's side of my Cadillac and then drove off to the motel I had chosen to spend the night at.After having paid the fee for my room, a humble room with a small desk and a single bed, I started making preparations for my imminent departure.
  5. While traveling through time and space. from one dimension to another dimension. Phasereale has been thinking about his new life and what he wants when he exits through time and space. Phasereale: Let's see. I want to make new friends. I want to attend to some fun activities like carnivals, festivals, concerts, parties, and all kinds of fun events! I also want to get a job to help out the community! I also want to get a marefriend and later on down the road, get married, and have our own children and live a great and joyful life!...… Oh, yeah! I also want to be known as well! After finishing saying his goals on what he wants to do in his new life. He started to remember his old country he used to live in. He remembered he had good and happy times, but their were times where their were bad and traumatic memories of events that happened in his old life in Acordia, Brewingwell. The good news is that he got saved by Slenderman at the last second before one of the demonic cult members that were chasing him. Almost fully breaking down the bacta tank glass that Phasereale was in and trying to be protected by the surrounding glass walls, in order to kill Phasereale when he was a kid. After Slenderman killed the demonic cultist member. He then took Phasereale to a dimension where demons live and who accept him for who he is. It was hard at first to get comfortable around other demons and monsters, because most of them he doesn't know and most of all.They are creepy, frightening, disturbing, sinister, menacing, and weird looking. Later on down the road. Phasereale got more comfortable around his kind, because he knows that he has to get used to the horrifying creatures around him. After remembering his past. Phasereale saw a light at the end of the portal and said to himself Phasereale: That must be the exit through this portal. Welp, time to make my exit! As he happily makes his exit through the portal. When Phasereale exited through the portal. The portal shot the blue maned and purple coat Pegasus in the air and tumbled to the grass in a hard landing. After, hitting the ground. Phasereale mustered the strength he can to get up off of the ground. While mustering the strength to get up from the ground while in pain. A pink maned and coat mare galloped over to Phasereale with a worried look on her face and asked Pinkie Pie: Hey, are you ok? As Phasereale stood on his four hoofs from getting up from the ground. He then told the pink mare saying Phasereale: Yeah, im ok. Thank you for asking. I just got into a hard landing. Pinkie Pie: Oh, alright! I'm very glad that you are ok! though you did struck a bad landing right their. Anyway, your welcome! Pinkie Pie said with a friendly smile on her face. When, Phasereale got up to face the pink mare. He saw how beautiful the pink mare is right in front of him. The mare's coat color matches her pink fluffy mane and tail color, which reminds him of cotton candy. As her, beautiful blue eyes remind him also of the blue sky in the clouds and for her cheery positive voice and smile. It fiils him with happiness and hope in his heart as it beats. Phasereale then snapped out of it after the pink mare asked Pinkie Pie: So, wants your name? As Pinkie Pie asked the blue maned and purple coat Pegasus's name. Phasereale then said to her. Phasereale: My name is Phasereale. Phasereale Cassandra. Pinkie Pie: Aaaauuuuu, I like your name! You have a unique name! The pink mare said with a friendly smile on her face. Phasereale: Thank you! I really appreciate the compliment miss? Phasereale paused after not learning the pink mare's name yet. Pinkie Pie: Huh......Oh! I almost forgot to introduce myself! My name is Pinkie Pie by the way! Also, your welcome again! Pinkie Pie said with a big smile on her face! Phasereale: Ooohh, I like your name too! It's a very beautiful, positive, and unique name! Pinkie Pie: Thank you, Phasereale! Phasereale: Your welcome, Pinkie! After Pinkie and Phasereale, introduced each other. Pinkie Pie then ask Pinkie Pie: So, hey! Do you want to go to Sugarcube Corner with me to hangout, talk, and eat some ice cream?!?! Phasereale: Sure thing! I do love ice cream! Pinkie Pie: Woohoo! We are going to have fun learning so much about EACH OTHER! Pinkie said in excitement to Phasereale's response to ice cream. Phasereale: Alright then! You can lead the way and i'll follow you! To be honest, I don't know where I am right now!?!? The 2 ponies then started trotting off to Sugarcube Corner for some ice cream and to get to know each other as friends. While walking, Phasereale did turn his and body a little bit to see if the portal is still their. When Phasereale, looked back to see if the portal is still their. The portal is not their anymore or no where to be found. Almost like if it vanished into thin air. Phasereale did wonder why Pinkie Pie didn't ask or question him about the portal as Phasereale turned his head back in the direction to where Pinkie Pie is taking him and continued his walk with her. At Sugarcube Corner, Pinkie Pie and Phasereale shared some laughter here and their about their childhoods and friends when they were young and what fun and cool things they did with them. Pinkie Pie also answered some of Phasereale's questions as well about the world he is in called Equestria. After answering Phasereale's questions. Pinkie Pie then Proceeded to say next after they both finished their laughter's together. Pinkie Pie: Well, anyway! I'm very glad that you met one of my friends Mrs Cake! Phasereale: Yeah! It's a honor to meet her! Pinkie Pie then asked Pinkie Pie: Hey, do you want to spend the night with me so that way you can find a place to live? Phasereale was about to answer Pinkie Pie's question until he was cut off by a mysterious and gentle voice right behind him Princess Celestia: I'm afraid your invitation will have to be declined Pinkie Pie The white alicorn says before the 2 ponies can turn their heads to the door of SugarCube Corner. Pinkie Pie then shouted in excitement and said Pinkie Pie: *gasps* IT'S PRINCESS CELESTIA!!!!! Phasereale: Wait, Princess who? The white alicorn then next introduced herself to Phasereale Princess Celestia: Where are my manners. My name is Princess Celestia. What is your name my little pony? Phasereale: My name is Phasereale. Phasereale Cassandra, your highness. As Phasereale took a bow to her. Princess Celestia: Well, it's very nice to meet you Phasereale Cassandra. after introducing each other and Phasereale bowing to her and for being silent for a few seconds. Pinkie Pie then broke the silence by asking Pinkie Pie: Wait, Princess Celestia. Why won't you let him stay with me for the night? Princess Celestia then answers Pinkie Pie's question Princess Celestia: Well, because Pinkie Pie. You don't know this pony that very well just yet. I know you talked with him a lot today and got to know him, but still. You shouldn't invite a pony in your home without getting to know them more in order to trust them in your home. Pinkie Pie: Oh, ok! That makes sense and it's understandable! Princess Celestia then put on a friendly smile and turned to Phasereale and asked him a question Princess Celestia: Phasereale. Would you like it, if you would live with me and my little sister Princess Luna in our castle in Canterlot? Phasereale then responded to her question by saying Phasereale: Why yes your highness. I would love that Princess Celestia then asked Phasereale to stand beside her, so that they can teleport to the castle together. As Phasereale trotted over to stand beside her. Pinkie Pie then interrupted her spell by saying Pinkie Pie: WAIT! Pinkie Pie then galloped over to Phasereale to give him a big friendly hug with both hoofs and then whispered in his ear saying Pinkie Pie: *whispering to phasereale while hugging him* I'm gonna miss you! Phasereale: *Hugs back with both hoofs* I'm gonna miss you, too Pinkie Pie! Pinkie Pie then turned her head to Princess Celestia while hugging Phasereale and said to her Pinkie Pie: Please take care of him, Princess. Princess Celestia then replied to Pinkie Pie by saying Princess Celestia: He will be taken care of in good hooves by me and my sister Pinkie Pie, so we will take care of him for you. He will also be back here in Ponyville tomorrow to help you and your friends around the town! Pinkie Pie then jumped up in happiness and smiled big along with a squee *squee* and then said Pinkie Pie: I'll go to sleep right now! I can't wait to see you tomorrow, Phasereale! See ya! Before Phasereale can respond back to her. She zoomed up to her bedroom to get ready for bed Phasereale: I can't wait to see you tomorrow, too Pinkie Pie! See ya! Phasereale shouted for her upstairs. He then proceeded to go back and stand by Celestia's side to be teleported to the Castle in Canterlot and then She teleported Phasereale with her to her castle. Meanwhile, back in the demon realm. Lies within are 5 Cult members that are having a meeting about Phasereale Demon Voice 1: At last. Our little sinner of our beloved Prince is in Equestria now and he doesn't know that we are tracking him and his every movement. Our next move, Ladies and Gentlecolts is that we frame him now and ruin his reputaution in equestrian and get him excuted by the princess of equestria for a sacrifice of a new hero and element of harmony. You my friend. I need you to go and ruin his life in equestria Demon Voice 2: Your quest and mission shall be done, your majesty
  6. According to Andrew Griffith, comic artist at IDW, the long dream of a Transformers and horses was considered at one point, it was cancelled
  7. Me and My brother started writing this story. It took us a lot of time and brain storming. It's a crossover of WWF: Attitude and My Little Pony. We are still working on this story. Enjoy! (Chapter 1) It was a bright sunny peaceful day in Ponyville. All the ponies were taking a relaxing day off after a hard working week of their businesses, accept for one pony named "Filthy Rich". Who is a well known business pony that loves doing business and making money. Instead of taking a relaxing day off. He had an idea to talk to the mayor of Ponyville about named, "Mayor Mare". "A wrestling tournament?" replied Mayor Mare to Filthy Rich's business idea. As the two ponies have a conversation at the Town Hall. "Yes, a wrestling tournament. This would draw in a crowd for exciting entertainment. Plus the contestants would have a chance to fight for a grand prize of 1 Million Bits.", said Filthy Rich. Mayor Mare was surprised. "So what do you think?", he asked. Mayor Mare was always known to take care of her town and keeping every pony happy. But having every pony entertained is what Mayor Mare loves to do. "That sounds like a wonderful idea. We shall break the news to every pony.", she said excitingly. "Thank you Mayor. I'll get things together." said Filthy Rich as he shook hooves with the Mayor and left the Town Hall. Happy that his business with Mayor Mare was a success. "That is a great idea that you have their, Filthy Rich." said an unknown voice to Filthy Rich. "What.......Who goes there?", as he looks around to see who was speaking to him. He then looks up and notices a creature that was a half dragon and half goat like. This creature had miss match body parts and color too. "I've been watching you, Filthy Rich.", said the mismatch creature as it disappeared from the second story and reappeared in front of him. "The name is Discord. Master of Chaos. I like to be a helping hand in your tournament.", Discord offered. Discord has always been known to cause trouble and chaos. But ever since he was reformed. He hasn't cause much trouble since then. "What kind of helping hand idea do you have?", Filthy Rich asked. Rubbing his chin with a carious look in his face. "Why, I can help by doing television production. I'll be capturing all the action that goes inside the ring and outside the ring.", explained Discord. As he appeared a movie camera on a tripod stand. Looking around in it while moving it around. Filthy Rich took the moment to think about it. "Hmmm.........Television production you say.", thinking about how more entertaining could be brought to viewers with outside action. "Discord, you got yourself a deal." said Filthy Rich giving a hoove shake. Accepting discords offer. Discord was well pleased and couldn't wait to get to work. (Chapter 2) The next day, all the ponies in ponyville gathered around outside the Town Hall to hear the announcement. "Greeting ladies and gentle colts. Your probably wondering, whats the exciting news. We are going to hold an exciting event..........A wrestling tournament." announced Mayor Mare, speaking at the podium. As all the poines looked at each other with smiles; whispering excitingly to the idea. "This event will be hoated by yours truly business pony........Filthy Rich.", she announced. Stepping away from the podium, allowing Filthy Rich to take center stage to make his speach. "Greetings ponyville, as youall heared Mayor Mare that I will be hosting a wrestling tournament. This event will bring entertainment and a chance to win One Million Bits to the winner. Any pony may participate. Strong or weak. The matches will be one on one qualification matches. Only 8 competitors will be in the main tournament bracket." announced Filthy Rich. "One Million Bits?" said Rainbow Dash. A skyblue colored pegasus with a rainbow color mane. "Do you hear that you guys? One.....Million.....Bits. Do you know how much Apple Cider I can get?" she said to her friends while day dreaming. "Calm down, Rainbow Dash. If any pony that's gonna win that grand prize. It will be me.", said Apple Jack. Pulling Rainbow Dash back to the ground by her tail with her teeth. Apple Jack is a country cowgirl orange earth pony. She has a blown braided mane and wearing a brown cowboy hat to go with it. "Oh yea! Then what would you do with the prize money, Apple Jack?", asked Rainbow Dash. "I would use it to expand Sweet Apple Acres. Not like some ponie's selfish needs." "What did you just say?" "Girls, girls. Is the prize money that important to make a ruckus?" ask Twilight Sparkle. "YES!", they both replied. "Urrrgh....." said Twilight Sparkle putting her hoove to her head. in fustration. Twilight Sparkle is a Purple Alicorn pony. Also the Princess of Friendship. "Twilight darling. It's normal for Apple Jack and Rainbow Dash to act in such a way. Thats what strikes up the fun in competition." said Rarity. Wrapping her right hoove around Twilight's back with a smile. Rarity was a White color unicorn with long Purple curl mane. "Hmmm........I guess your right Rarity. Are you going to participate in the event too?" "Oh of course not. I want to work in the outfit department. All my designs will be fabulous." said Rarity. Day dreaming. about a crowd of ponies admiring her designs as participants in the wrestling tournament walking to there ring wearing them. "Pinkie Pie and I thought about doing commentary.", said Spike. Following up after Rarity. Pinkie Pie was a Pink Earth pony with a Pink curly mane. Spike was a Small Purple & Green Dragon. Which he is Twilight's side kick. "The sounds great Spike. You and I will be the best commentators.....EVER!", shouted Pinkie Pie. Having one hoove around his back and raising her other hoove in excitement. "That sounds great you two. Fluttershy, what about you?", asked Twilight. "Ummmm.....well, I thought about...." "Being an interviewer.", said Discord. Interrupting in the middle of Fluttershy's sentence as he appeared out of nowhere. "DISCORD!", shouted the group. "What are you doing here?", asked Rainbow Dash. "And more importantly, what are you up too?", asked Apple Jack as well. "Why I'm doing Television Production.", replied Discord. Appearing a movie camera on a tripod in front of them. "Are you sure your not trying to plan another sceem, are you?", asked Twilight. Lacking trust in Discord. "Oh please. I'll be able to capture all the action that goes on inside the ring and outside the ring. What in possible thing that can happen with a camera?" Twilight Sparkle thought about it for a second and didn't think any harm can come from Discord filming all the action for the audience. "Ok Discord. But NO Funny Business.", demanded Twilight. Knowing Discord would cause some kind of mayhem. "I keep my word.", Discord response back. (Chapter 3) The next day at the Ponyville Town Hall. The place was crowded with different ponies from different places. Earth ponies, Unicorns, and pegasus. Some were from Chanterlot and Clousdale. Some were different sizes and forms. Some were bigger, some were smaller, some were faster, and some were slower. But it didn't matter what you were. All of the ponies that were gathered here today were here to have a chance to win 1 Million Bits. In the middle of the room was a corner wrestling ring which all the ponies crowded around. Among them was Rainbow Dash and Apple Jack, who were so excited to get started. "Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh. Look how many ponies are here, Apple Jack. Do you think we have a chance?", asked Rainbow Dash. Astonished of how many ponies were participating. "It sure is quite a crowd. But I'm sure we have a good chance. We just need to stay positive and do our best.", said Apple Jack with a positive attitude. "Your so correct, Apple Jack.", said a familiar voice approaching up from behind them. "TWILIGHT!!!", they both said. "What are you doing here? Your not an athlete.", said Rainbow Dash suprised. "I thought you were going to do.....to do.....what was it you were going to do again?", said Apple Jack. Trying to remember what Twilight was going to do. "I never said what I was going to do. I'm going to be in the competition. It will be a great experience to see what wrestlers are like in the ring. Plus it's a good workout.", said Twilight excited. Rainbow Dash than commented quietly to Apple Jack, "Egghead". They both giggled. In the middle of the ring stood Filthy Rich, ready to begin the qualifying event. "Good afternoon every pony and welcome to the qualification event. Today, we'll be going over some inside and outside performance ring drills. Then, tomorrow you will have 1 on 1 matches. It is not about winning about winning or loosing the match. I'm looking for talent and entertainment. This is your chance fora 1 Million Bits prize. But only eight competitors will be selected. Now if you want to add other things to your character. Let me introduce to you my helpers." Filthy Rich stepped to the side to allow his helperd take center stage. "If you want to cut a promo speech. Fluttershy is here with Discord on Live Television.", said Filthy Rich introduced both of them as the two of them smiled and waved. "If you want to look good. You can ask Ms. Rarity to design an outfit.", he introduced Rarity. "And for our commentary, Pinkie Pie and Spike." "Thank you, thank you every pony.", Spike and I will be the best commentators EVER!!!", shouted Pinkie Pie as Spike held his ears on the side. All the others ponies were quite. "Yes.....Ms. Pie.....Thank you. Alright every pony. Lets line up and get started.", said Filthy Rich. Rainbow Dash, Apple Jack, and Twilight Sparkle were ready, until a little group of familiar faces approached them. "Twily!" "Big bro!", replied Twilight as she turned around and saw her big brother, Shiny Armor along with others; Cadence, Tempest, Spitfire, and Big Mac. "Tempest, Spitfire, and Big Mac? Are you all in this too?", she asked as they all nodded in response of yes. "Well, I hope we both don't end up fighting each other, Big Mac. It sure would give us Apple's a better chance of winning.", said Apple Jack. "Eeee-Yup!", agreed Big Mac. "That's awesome that your in too, Spitfire.", said Rainbow Dash. Excited to see another Wonderbolt taking part in the event. "Well I can't let you have all the fun, Rainbow Dash.", said Spitfire jokingly. "It's really nice to see the both of you in this too, Tempest and big bro.", said Twilight Sparkle. "Well every pony, good luck and may the best pony win.", said Shiny Armor. "YEA!!!", they all shouted in cheers. For the rest of the day, all the competitors went through wrestling training. Hoping to perform good in their upcoming qualifying matches. (Chapter 4) The next day after training, it was time for the qualifying matches. "Skill.....Entertain.....Awesomeness. Skill.....Entertain.....Awesomeness.", repeated Rainbow Dash as she was getting ready for her match. "Rainbow Dash, I see your ready for your match." said Twilight Sparkle as Apple Jack and her approached Rainbow Dash. "And I see some pony here has already gotten her outfit." said Apple Jack. Referring to Rainbow Dash's black leather vest that she was wearing. On the front it had her name vertically while the other side was her cutie mark. On the backside read "20% Cooler" with a pony skull in the middle. "I see that you both have noticed.", said Rainbow Dash admiring the comment. "Ummm.....don't you think that looks kind of dark?" asked Twilight Sparkle. Looking at the vest in a different way than how Rainbow Dash sees it. "What do you mean? Of course it is. It's a black leather vest." "What she means is that she is referring to the pony skull on the backside." said Apple Jack. Pointing out the obvious. "Oh that, I figured it would look cool and show the crowd that I'm serious of winning this. You might as well call me Rainbow Austin." said Rainbow Dash with a smirk on her face. Feeling proud about it. "Rainbow.....Austin?" Twilight Sparkle said confusing of what she means by that. "Beats me.", agreed Apple Jack. "Well if you now excuse me. I would like to get back to my warm up before my match." "Alright, good luck out there.", said Apple Jack as both Twilight Sparkle and her was leaving away from Rainbow Dash. "Skill.....Entertain.....Awesomeness." said Rainbow Dash. Getting back to her warm ups until another pony approaches her. It was the pegasus Lightning Dust. Rainbow Dash's rival from the Wonder Bolts Academy. "Hey Rainbow Dash. Getting ready to loose." she said mockingly. "And why do you say that, Lightning Dust?", asked Rainbow Dash. Annoyed by Lightning Dust's appearance. "Did you not know. You and I will be squaring off." "Say what?" Rainbow Dash surprised. "And I will be taking you down to be in the main tournament.", said Lightning Dust with a serious mean looking tone. "We'll just see about that.", said Rainbow Dash back to her with her muzzle in her face. ------------------------------------ "Alright every pony. Our next match for the qualifying round is Rainbow Dash versus Lightning Dust.", announced Filthy Rich. All the other ponies cheered as the two ponies went to the ring. "Now entering the ring......From Cloudsdale.....RAINBOW DASH!!!", shouted Fluttershy. Introducing the two ponies. "And now her opponent in the other corner. Also from Cloudsdale.....LIGHTNING DUST!!!" As the crowd cheers. "Go Rainbow Dash!", yelled Twilight Sparkle. "You can do it!", yelled Apple Jack. "Just be careful and try not to hurt yourself Rainbow Crash!" yelled Spitfire. As Rainbow Dash's friends cheered her on. "You know Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash was once Lightning Dust's wing pony at the Wonder Bolts Academy. But then Lightning Dust got kicked out for her stunts of putting other ponies in danger. Could that be a motive for her to defeat Rainbow Dash?", said Spike. "No way, LETS GO RAINBOW DASH!!!", shouted Pinkie Pie. "DING! DING! DING!" went the ring bell. Sounding the signal that the match has officially started. "Here we go ladies and gentle cults. Rainbow Dash and Lightning Dust ties up.", said Spike. Commentating on the match as both ponies wrestle, Through out the match, they perform punches, kicks, suplexes, and jumping off corner turnbuckles. Doing everything that they can do to win. The crowd was loving it. They had know idea who would win. "Lightning Dust is climbing the turnbuckle. Rainbow Dash is down and not moving. And........Body Slam! Is there a doctor in the house?" said Spike. Getting into the action. "Oh no! Get up Rainbow Dash!", yelled Pinkie Pie. Lightning Dust looked down on a helplessly Rainbow Dash. She realized that victory was in her hooves. But also wanted to humiliate her a bit to the crowd. Lightning Dust turned to the crowd, showing off ans shouting. "Who's the best? Lightning Dust!", shouted the crowd along with Lightning Dust. They were getting into the action. Except for Rainbow Dash's friends who were worried about her. "Rainbow!" "Get up!" "On your hooves, Rainbow Crash!" yelled Twilight Sparkle, Apple Jack, and Spitfire. Hoping that she'll get up. "This could be it! Rainbow Dash is down and Lightning Dust is showing off to the crowd!" said Spike. "Come on Rainbow Dash! Get up!", yelled Pinkie Pie. Suddenly Rainbow Dash started to get up. Lightning Dust then turned around and got into position to do her signature finishing move. "Lightning Dust is waiting for Rainbow Dash to get up.............Scissor Kick!....She missed it......Rainbow Dash! Stunner!..........Sweet Celestia!", Spike commentated. As Lightning Dust missed her Scissor Kick finisher and Rainbow Dash turned around to hit her with her finisher the Stunner. The crowd was going wild. "Sweet Celestia! Sweet Celestia! Rainbow Dash turned the tables! She's going for the cover! 1!.......2!.......3!" Spike counted with the referee. "DING! DING! DING!" went the ring bell. "Here's your winner, RAINBOW DASH!!!", shouted Fluttershy. "What a Great match that was Pinkie Pie." said Spike. "Yay! Rainbow Dash won! Woooohoooo!" Pinkie yelled happily. Rainbow Dash felt proud of herself for defeating her opponent and qualifying for the tournament. The crowd was cheering for her as she left the ring and headed back to the room's entrance. At the door waiting for an interview was Fluttershy and Discord. Which they couldn't wait to hear what Rainbow Dash had to say. "Rainbow Dash, That was an incredible match. Do you have anything to say about your victory?", asked Fluttershy. While Discord had the camera focused on Rainbow Dash. She was trying to think of what to say. She wanted to sound good to the audience. But then she remembered what Discord had told her. "Give it some attitude." "Yea well, the first this you should do is get that piece of crap out of my ring." said Rainbow Dash with no concern about Lightning Dust. All the ponies in the townhall and including backstage were silent with the jaws dropped. Even Fluttershy was stunned. As soon as Rainbow Dash seen the looks on every ponies face. She knew she was making her mark and wow the audience. "Don't just get her out of the ring, get her out of Ponyville. Because I'm through with girl. Without a shout of a doubt. You ain't got what it takes anymore. You sit there and say your prayers to sweet Celestia and that didn't get you anywhere. The only answers you gotten were Rainbow Dash just whipped your a**!." said Rainbow Dash. "Come on, that''s not necessary." said fluttershy. Trying to calm Rainbow Dash down. "All she's gotta do is go buy herself a cheap bottle of Apple Sider and try to dig back some of that courage, she had in her prime. As far as qualifying, I'm sending a notice to every other qualifying competitor. I don't give a damn what they are, there all on the list. And that's Rainbow Dash's list. And I'm fixin' to start runnin' through all of them. As far as this tournament is considered Fluttershy. I don't give a damn if it's Apple Jack or Twilight Sparkle. Rainbow Dash's time has come and when I get the shots, your lookin' at the prize winner of this tournament. And that's the bottom line. Because Rainbow Dash said so." said Rainbow Dash. Ending her speech and went to the backstage. Leaving all the other ponies still stunned. "NAILED IT!!!" shouted Pinkie Pie from the commentator table. Coming back to her senses quicker than others. In the back stage. Rainbow Dash felt good after what she just said. "RAINBOW DASH!!!", shouted Twilight Sparkle as she approached her. "What in Equestria was that? You had completely insulted Lightning Dust. And using fowl language on top of it. What do you have to say for yourself?", demanded Twilight. Wanting an answer. "Yea well.......you see......." "That's enough you two.", said Filthy Rich. Cutting Rainbow Dash off while approaching up to them. "Today's matches are over. Every pony may go. We will continue the qualifying matches tomorrow. The ones who qualified are in. Accept you........Ms. Dash.", Filthy Rich turning his attention to Rainbow Dash with a serious look. "For your actions of your speech. You are Disqualified." "WAIT!....SAY WHAT!....DISQUALIFIED!" Rainbow Dash reacted. Shocked about what Filthy Rich just said. "Mr. Rich, Can't we just talk this out. I'm sure Rainbow Dash has a good reason for her actions.", said Twilight Sparkle. Sticking up for her friend. "Sorry Ms. Sparkle. That will be out of the question. And she will not be allowed to attend the event." said Filthy Rich. Rainbow Dash was about to cry. She turned away, left Town Hall, and flew back home. "Rainbow! Wait......", Twilight called back to her but Rainbow Dash didn't look back. (Chapter 5) Rainbow Dash layed on her bed crying in tears. Thinking about what just happened. How excited she was about the tournament and was wanting to entertain the audience. She figured that giving a bit edgy and attitude would excite them. Then she noticed her pet tank the turtle tye next to her. She looked at Tank and hugged him. "Oh Tank, what can I do?", Rainbow Dash asked. "I try to bring excitement but all I did was get kicked out. Have you ever felt like that, Tank?" Then Something came to mind. She remembered the first time that she met Tank. "You know. I do remember how I use to push you to the side and never gave you a chance. But as hard as your shell is, you never gave up." Rainbow Dash started feeling better. "I just need to do the same and not give up. Thanks Tank. Your the best.", she said with a smile and a hug with confidence. She flew to her closet and pulled out a black vest that she and Rarity make for her. It had her name "Rainbow Dash" on the front side alone with her cutie mark. On the back side it said "20% Cooler" with a pony skull in the middle. "I'm ready to open a can of whoop ass.", she said with a grin. --------------------------------------------- The next day at the Town Hall. Ponies that were participating gathered around the ring for the rest for the rest of the ponies to qualify for the tournament. In the middle of the ring was Filthy Rich with a Mic along with Fluttershy and Discord. Ready for Mr. Rich's Speech. "Greetings every pony and welcome back to the qualifications for the tournament. As you all know there are only eight open slots. For what happen yesterday with Ms. Dash and her act. Her spot is open. Now........." Suddenly Discord popped up a live broadcast of Rainbow Dash flying to the Town Hall which captured Filthy Rich's attention. The way how she looked, he knew she won't stop coming to the event since she was banned. "SECURITY!!!" "DON'T LET HER IN HERE!!!", he demanded the security. The security blocked the entrance door. But before they knew it. They were tossed to the side by the doors as they burst open from Rainbow Dash flying in. She landed right in front of Filthy Rich. All the ponies were quiet but had their attentions on both of them in the middle if the ring. After bursting right in with a serious look., Filthy Rich didn't know what to say. "Rainbow Dash, why are you here?", he asked. "Because I got something to say to your face. And I rather do it here with every pony here.", said Rainbow Dash. Filthy Rich tried to give a hoove shake to Rainbow Dash but she didn't accept it. "I'm not gonna shake your hoove because I'm not here to make friends with ya. Mr. Rich I........." "But..." "Shut up!", said Rainbow Dash after Filthy Rich trying to cut her off. "Mr. Rich I respect what you have done in the business world. But sweet Celestia son. When you step in this ring, your messing with Rainbow Dash and that's something you don't do. Let me make it short and sweet what I'm telling you, that is I want a piece of Filthy Rich's ass. I respect what you have done, but your out here thinking that it was ok to disqualify me. Right now you got your biddy little eyes, locked on the eyes of Equestria's toughest Son of a B****. I can beat you any day of the week. Twice on Sunday. Wanna think you can beat my ass. Hell No! Do I think I can beat your ass. Why Hell Yea! I don't know how good your hearing is. But if you don't understand what I'm saying. I always got a little bit of sign language. So here's to ya.", said Rainbow Dash giving Thilfy Rich the the sign to go screw himself. Which made Filthy Rich to ended up loosing his cool. Rainbow Dash and Thilfy Rich pushed each other for a moment until they both started to beat the heck out of each other. Security got into the ring to hold them back from each other while the crowd was cheering excitedly. They couldn't believe what was going on. They arrested Rainbow Dash and started heading her out. "I'm not through with you Filthy Rich. Not by a long shot." commented Rainbow Dash into the TV camera on her way out. "Rainbow Dash is going straight to the Canterlot Dungeons!", said Spike on commentary. The crowd started to boo. But for Filthy Rich, he didn't know what to think about this. He cooled down and stayed cool to finish up the qualifying matches. --------------------------------------------- Later that day, Twilight gathered Filthy Rich and Mayor Mare together to discuss about Rainbow Dash at the Town Hall. "Thank you both for coming. I want to talk about the situation about Rainbow Dash. She may have been rough around the edges lately. But was it necessary to throw her in jail?", Twilight showing some concern for her friend. "Ms. Sparkle, I do understand your concern about your friend. She has been out of control and needed to get her to settle down. She is not going to be locked up forever. Just for the meantime to figure out this situation. Do you agree Ms. Mare?",Filthy Rich turning his focus to Mayor Mare. "I do agree as well.", she nodded. "But I have come to a conclusion. After seeing....." *Thump* Filthy Rich was suddenly interrupted by a thump sound at the door. He walks over to it and opens it. Suddenly three young fillies fall down past the door. It was Apple Bloom, Sweetie Bell, and Scootaloo. Who were trying to listen in on to the conversation. Not to mention that they were wearing Rainbow Dash T-Shirts & Wigs. And it wasn't just them three. The whole Rainbow Dash Fan Club was there behind them. Even half of ponyville was there to hear the out come of Rainbow Dash. Filthy Rich, Mayor Mare, and Twilight Sparkle were all suprised to see how many Rainbow Dash Supporters there was. "Apple Bloom, Sweetie Bell, Scootaloo, whats going on here? Why is every pony here?", Twilight asked the question. "We're all here because we wanted to say please don't ban Rainbow Dash from the tournament.", said Scootaloo. All she wanted to do was bring excitement to every pony.", Apple Bloom followed up after Scootaloo. "Just look how many supporters are out here, Mr. Rich?", Sweetie Bell pointing out the door. "Girls, I appreciate you all for rounding up every pony here. But I had already made up my mind and will not change it.", said Filthy Rich looking intimidating to the three fillies. "Now then, as I was saying.", turning towards the big crowd outside. "After seeing how the ratings went up and how the crowd liked the entertainment that Rainbow Dash was giving. I here by to announce that Ms. Dash will be in the tournament. But her first opponent will be........Me." Every pony cheer in excitement. They couldn't wait for the show. "Well, we'll see you all there tomorrow. Have a good day every pony.", said Filthy Rich as he closes the doors. Twilight and Mayor Mare went to Rainbow Dash to tell her the good news and went home for the rest of the day until tomorrow. (Chapter 6) It was the day to start the wrestling tournament. All the ponies in Ponyville gathered at the townhall. Surrounding the ring but there was Barricade gates keeping the crowd backed away from the ring. In the middle of the ring was Fluttershy and Discord. Ready to start today's show. "Umm........Hello every pony. Welcome to Filthy Rich's wrestling tournament.", Fluttershy starts off a little nervous while Discord is focused in on her with the TV camera which viewed on television screens outside the townhall and inside for those who can't see the ring. "We........have many incredible matches here tonight........Ummm.......Please let me introduce to you your commentators, Pinkie Pie and Spike." "Whoooooooohooooooooo!", yelled Pinkie Pie excitedly. While Spike stood on the commentary table smiling and waving. "And now........Ummm........enjoy the show." Suddenly the lights dimmed. The only light there was coming from the television screen which all the ponies were focused on. Which showed a garage parking lot with a big overhead entrance door, with Filthy Rich riding on a fancy carriage pulled by two ponies through the entrance door. Pinkie Pie: "Oooooo, look who is coming in with a fancy ride." Spike: "Mr. Rich is here every pony. Tonight he'll be facing off against Rainbow Dash." "Leave the overhead door open. I want Rainbow Dash to feel welcomed." Said Filthy Rich to an operator as he steps down from his carriage and walks away from the camera veiw. Spike: "But the question is. Will Rainbow Dash show up tonight?" Suddenly an intro video with heavy rock music plays on the screen. The video consisted photo age of ponies wrestling in a ring inside of a facility place with explosions of fire popping up around the ring. At the end of the intro, Fireworks began to go off at the entrance door. The crowd was going wild and excited. Spike: "It's a sold out crowd. Here at the townhall in Ponyville. Hello every pony and welcome to PWF: Ponyville Wrestling Federation. As we'll be kicking off with the first round tonight. I'm Spike." Pinkie Pie: "And I'm Pinkie Pie." Spike: "Were here tonight for a great show." Suddenly a rock music type sound comes on. "Now entering the ring. BIG MAC!!!.", Fluttershy announced as Big Mac walked down the entrance aisle to the ring. Every pony was cheering. He gets into the ring and looks around at the crowd and says "E-YUP!" Spike: "Big Mac may work on a apple farm. But will his laboring skills bring him to victorious?" Pinkie Pie: "Big Mac maybe large. But will he be in charge." Then the next song came on. It was another rock song but with lyrics saying words of "It's me time". Fluttershy: "Now entering the ring, accompanied by his wife Princess Cadance, SHINY ARMOR!!!" As Shiny Armor walks to the ring. He gets a goods luck kiss from his wife before entering. Him and Big Mac glare at each other waiting for the bell to ring. Spike: "Shiny Armor has worked as a royal guard. But will that be enough to take down Big Mac?" Pinkie Pie: "His name may have Armor. But is he hard as armor?" DING! DING! DING! went the ring bell as both ponies go at it. Grappling up together. Tossing each other over against the ropes and doing leg holds. The crowd was cheering for both competitors. Sometimes they would stop for a seconded and do a pose for the audience. Spike: "And their they go at it. Big Mac tosses Shiny Armor. He bounces off the ropes. He ducks under a clothes line from Big Mac. Off the ropes.....Ooooh! What a take down! The crowd is going wild." Pinkie Pie: "Ooooooh. This match is so exciting. Exciting as cake." As Pinkie Pie pulls out a piece of cake and starts to eat. "Yummy. Chocolate cake with sprinkles. Want some?" Spike: "Ummm. Maybe later." In the back behind the entrance curtains. Twilight sparkle watches her brother's match until Filthy Rich approaches her. "Has Ms. Dash show up yet Ms. Sparkle?", he asked. Wondering if his opponent has arrived yet. "No Mr. Rich. I have not seemed her yet. Quite frankly, I have not seen or heard from her since her release." DING! DING! DING! as the ring bell catching both Twilight sparkle and Filthy Rich's attention. "And here's your winner.......SHINY ARMOR!!!", shouted Fluttershy as the crowd was cheering and Shiny Armor was raising his hooves in victorious. Spike: "Sweet Celestia. What an incredible match that was. I thought for sure Big Mac had him." Pinkie Pie: "Really? This cake and I are still going at it." Spike: "Urrrrrgh......." Spike rolling his eyes. "Congratulations Shiny Armor for defeating Big Mac. Do you have any thing to say?", asked Fluttershy holding the microphone to Shiny Armor while Discord focused on him with the camera. "Lets just make one thing clear here. This whole tournament is about me. It's not about Cadance or any pony else. It's about a few days from now. It's about me getting what I want out of this tournament, and that's becoming a champion among all.", said Shiny Armor giving attitude. Fluttershy: "So your saying is that you will win this tournament without Princess Cadance's help?" "Your damn right. I don't need any pony else Fluttershy. This is about me. It's not about being royalty. This about me. It's about me reaching my goals..........You know, while we're at it. This goes back along way Fluttershy. This goes back to Crystal Empire. This goes back to the battle of King Sombra. Me being the prince and couldn't save my own Empire." Fluttershy: "That was Season 2." "You damn right that was Season 2 and everyday it has eaten a hole into my stomach, Fluttershy. Every single day. It was back in Season 2, Crystal Empire, I threw my wife to catch the Crystal Heart, to save my Empire.........But who was the real hero Fluttershy?......Spike.....Wanna know why. Because I was too busy caring about her health and throwing my wife to catch the Crystal Heart before King Sombra got it. No pony else had the guts to do that with their wife. I did it. Why? Because I was their New King. I was suppose to be their hero......Good old Shiny Armor will be ok about Spike's statue. It's ok. Well you know what, that makes me sick in my stomach. Every time I look at him and his group of friends, It makes me sick to think what you guys did to me holding me back. You guys talking about Friendship is Magic, I am the Game. There is no pony that eats, sleeps, or breaths this tournament more than me. And now it's my time to prove to Equestria, Final Match, It's my time to take what is mine. And that's becoming a champion among all." Fluttershy: "You know Shiny Armor. This tournament is more than just about you. It's about the prize money......." ......."To hell with the prize money. To hell with Rainbow Dash. To hell with Apple Jack. To hell with my sister Twilight. I own all their asses. The prize money. I can care less. You want to promote that prize. Then go right ahead. But when it is all set and done. This tournament is about me. It's about no pony else. It's about me. It's about me getting what I deserve in this tournament. And that is what I want and that's becoming a champion among all.", Shiny Armor finished his speech and walked away with Cadance. Leaving every other pony stunned including Fluttershy. (Chapter 7) The crowd was shocked about what Shiny Armor had said. Most of them never knew how he really felt about Crystal Empire. Even Spike wanted to get up out if his seat to talk some sence into him. Spike: "What is his problem?" Pinkie Pie: " Yea! Sounds like some pony needs to learn how to Smile!" Pinkie Pie couldn't help the fact that Shiny Armor wasn't smiling. Shiny Armor meant every word in his speech. Making a statement to have the other competitors to be aware that he is serious about winning this tournament. Not taking any concern of hurting others feels. Especially his own sister Twilight Sparkle, who was in tears after what she just heard. "Big Bro?.......*Sniff*.......Did you really mean that?", asked Twilight Sparkle. "Of course I did, Twily. I'm sick of Spike. I'm sick you you. I'm sick of all of your friends.", said Shiny Armor with no concern. "But.....But.....Your my BBBFF.....Big Brother Best Friends Forever.", Twilight cried out. "I'm sick of that too!", shouted Shiny Armor. Twilight cried on Apple Jacks back. "Look here Shiny Armor. I don't know whats gotten in to ya. But apologize to her right this instant.", demanded Apple Jack. "You can not talk to my husband like that.", Cadance stepped in. "It's alright my dear. Lets not waste our breath on them.", said Shiny Armor. Starting to walk away with Cadance. "Well good riddance. What has gotten into them?", asked Apple Jack. "I have no idea.", Twilight responded. Trying to calm down. The lighting in the arena dimmed to where the only light source was the television monitor screen. On it, it was showing a view of the garage parking lot area in the back. Showing a cement truck driving in. Spike: "Wait a minute. What the heck is that?" Pinkie: "What the heck is that?" Spike: Is that?......" Pinkie: It's a Cement.....a Cement Truck and Rainbow Dash is driving it." Spike: "Oh my.....Rainbow Dash is in the building." Pinkie: "Is she a loco in a coco. First she was sent to the Canterlot Dungeons. Now she's driving around in a Cement Truck?" Spike: "Well folks, this is about to get really interesting. Rainbow Dash is here. Is that gonna make Filthy Rich happy or not?" Suddenly Fluttershy gets to the scene to have a word with Rainbow Dash. Fluttershy: "Rainbow Dash! What in Equestria are you doing!? A Cement Truck!?" Rainbow Dash: "Sweet Celestia, you heard girl. I have an open invitation to come here. So I don't know what you are so worked up about. But what I will tell ya , you might wanna go get that rich boy Filthy Rich and tell him to get his ass out here. Because what I'm gonna do, might creat a little interest on the Rich side of the family. Now get your ass out of here. Because I got some work to do and I wanna check my equipment out." Rainbow Dash closed the driver door while Fluttershy backed away. Looking onward towards the television screen was Filthy Rich. "She's driving a CEMENT TRUCK!!!", he shouted. Pinkie: "I knew it Spike, she is gonna try and drive it right in here. Get ready to run. She'll run right over us." Spike: "Wait a minute that's....." Pinkie: "Hey! Wait a minute! Don't run over Mr. Rich's fancy carriage." Spike: "Oh I don't think she.....it doesn't look like she's gonna run over it." Pinkie: "Wait a minute!" Spike: "Sweet Celestia! I don't believe this ladies and gentlecolts! Pinkie: "Mr. Rich!......Mr. Rich!" Spike: "That's one of the carriages of Mr. Rich's collections." Pinkie: "That's a 50 thousand bit carriage!......No!......Spike!.......No!" Spike: "Sweet Celestia! Rainbow Dash is loading Mr. Rich's carriage with cement......Mr. Rich's carriage has been loaded with cement!" Pinkie: "Sweet Celestis!" Spike: "Mr. Rich's carriage, one of his collections, has been destroyed by Rainbow Dash!" Pinkie: "Nooooo!" Spike: "Rainbow Dash has struck!" Pinkie: "Some pony call the cops!" The crowd inside the townhall was going wild about what just happened and couldn't wait to see the next up coming match. Twilight Sparkle & Mayor Mare were shocked. But Filthy Rich was more stunned than any other pony. All three of them went to go and take a look at the sceen of the destroyed carriage. Rich: "It's completely.........destroyed. Mare: "Is your briefcase in there?......Your briefcase is in there." Twilight: "We are gonna need to get a shovel, Mr. Rich." Suddenly Pinkie Pie showed up at the scene a hurry to help dive into the cement and find what they need salvaged. Pinkie: "I've seen worst situations. You should be able to salvage something." Rich: "Ms. Pinkie......" Pinkie: "Hey that just gave me an idea. Let me see what I can do." Mare: "There is a briefcase in there, see if you can get the briefcase." Twilight: "Pinkie, see if you can get the briefcase." Spike: "Pinkie Pie is looking for the briefcase. I don't know how she got over there in a blink of an eye from where I am at." Pinkie: I'm gonna give it another try." Rich: "Don't give it another try.....Don't.....Just leave the damn thing along!" Pinkie: "I got it! I got it!" Rich: "You got what?" After Pinkie Pie was able to retrieve his briefcase. He was happy that his business paper works were saved but still furious about what Rainbow Dash has done. He knows that their match is up next and knows that's where she is headed. Filthy Rich starts to head towards the arena to settle the feud. (Chapter 8) All the ponies in the crowd were excited. The match that they all have been waiting for, Rainbow Dash VS Filthy Rich was about to happen. After watching everything that has happened between the two ponies. There's no doubt that this will be the match of the night. Spike: "Welcome back, ladies and gentlecolts to PWF! Just moments ago we witnessed Rainbow Dash ruin one of Mr. Rich's prize carriage collections." Pinkie: "Ruin? She destroyed that carriage ad I still got cement on my hooves." Spike: "This feud started from a speech, to being disqualified, to a brawl, and now getting too personal where we are now a few moments away for business to be settled. Filthy Rich's song starts to play. His song was speaking lyrics of "You got no chance.". Indicating that if you mess with him, you got no chance and that's how he acted coming down to the ring. Half the crowd cheered but the the other were waiting on for Rainbow Dash. But Filthy Rich didn't care for the cheers. He was ready to settle personal business with Rainbow Dash. Suddenly a sound of glass shattering is loudly heard, followed by music that sounded like trouble was coming which made the crowd jump and started to cheer "Rainbow Dash". Spike: "And here she comes ladies and gentlecolts. Rainbow Dash is here. Fluttershy: "His opponent, now entering the ring.....RAINBOW DASH!!!" Fluttershy announcing her as she gets into the ring. Spike: "She's gonna settle the score with Filthy Rich. Oh here we go ladies and gentlecolt! Rainbow Dash and Mr. Rich are going at it." DING! DING! DING! Spike: "And the referee has started the match." Pinkie: "Sweet Celestis! This is intense." Spike: "Rainbow Dash has Mr. Rich trapped in a corner doing punches and kicks." Pinkie: "Come on! Stop stalling! I came to see some good action.!" Spike: "Oh! Rake to the eyes by Filthy Rich, turning this match around." As Filthy Rich swiped Rainbow Dash across the eyes. It had her back off of him from being trapped in the corner. Now he was able to start fighting back. Spike: "Filthy Rich throws Rainbow Dash to the ropes.....and.....misses the clothesline.....Rainbow Dash turned around.....Neck Breaker! What a match his has been so far." Pinkie: "It sure is Spike. I don't even know who to cheer for. I need help deciding what T-shirt to wear. Want to help me pick?". Spike: "Ummmmm......." The crowd was going wild. They didn't know who to cheer for half the time they cheered Rainbow Dash. The other half of the time they cheered Filthy Rich. The match was really intense as it was expected. But until a certain pony interrupts. Spike: "Rainbow Dash gets the cover.....1.....2.....Wait a minute!." Pinkie: "Whats this.....What is Cadence doing out here?". Spike: "Cadence is distracting the referee. Forcing him to stop the count." Pinkie:"Rainbow Dash ain't to happy about that.....Wait! It's Shiny Armor getting into the ring from behind." Spike: "The ref is unaware." Pinkie: "Don't turn Rainbow Dash!" Spike: "Pedigree! The referee didn't see it. Shiny Armor is getting out of the way and now being ejected out of the arena by the ref." Pinkie: "Shiny Armor just cost Rainbow Dash the match." Spike: "Filthy Rich is going for the cover.....1.....2.....Sweet Celestia! Rainbow Dash kicked out of it." Pinkie: "How did she kick out of that?" Every pony couldn't believe it. After an interference of Shiny Armor and Cadence trying to take out a big threat in the competition. They were all shocked about Rainbow Dash's determination to win the match. They all started cheering "This is Awesome!" Spike: "Ladies and Gentlecolts. I've known Rainbow Dash for a long time. But this is as far as determination that I ever seen from her. Pinkie: "Really? Spike: "Rainbow Dash is getting up. Filthy Rich.....Rainbow Dash ducks from a punch.....Kick!.....Stunner! Rainbow Dash got her finisher.....she's going for the cover.....1.....2.....3.....She did it!" Fluttershy:" Here's your winner.....RAINBOW DASH!!! Fluttershy shouted her name as Rainbow Dash's music played. But Rainbow Dash wasn't in the mood for any victory celebration. She was well pissed off about Shiny Armor and Cadence trying to screw her over. She grabbed the mic from Fluttershy. Spike: "Rainbow Dash is Victorious.....Uh-Oh. Wait a minute." "Shiny Armor!.....You better start running, because I'm coming back there to kick your ass you son of a b****.", said Rainbow Dash catching her breath. She rolled out of the ring and started heading towards the backstage. Spike: "Rainbow Dash is not wasting anytime. She is on a hot pursuit for some pay back." Pinkie: "I have never seen Rainbow Dash the mad before." She was so pissed off that she couldn't wait to get her hooves on Shiny Armor. But she was unaware that Twilight Sparkle was behind the curtain waiting to stop her in her tracks. "Rainbow Dash! I need to talk to you.", said Twilight. Trying to catch her attention. "Sorry Twilight. I don't have the time.", answered back Rainbow Dash walking right past her like she wasn't there. "WOULD YOU JUST LISTEN TO ME!!!", yelled Twilight. Using her magic to freeze Rainbow Dash. "I don't know whats gotten into you and Shiny Armor. But this attitude you both have needs to stop. Your being reckless. First you insult another pony. Then destroyed personal property. And on top of that. Your using foul language on a children show!" "Listen.....Twilight, I totally get what your saying. But this is a competition. You can not win by being nice and win over the crowd. You need to loosen up a bit and get serious. Give the crowd what they want. You don't have to do what I do. We all have different personalities. You can use your words to win over the crowd.", said Rainbow Dash. Calming down from her mood. "I guess your right. But it doesn't mean you need to be reckless.", said Twilight. Looking at things from a different point of view. "I'm sorry. I guess I have been getting a bit carried away." "I guess your right about that. Sorry that I had to freeze you like that.", said Twilight apologizing. "It's ok. Now where did Shiny Armor go? I want to know why he tried to screw me out of this tournament." "I just gotten done talking to him and Cadence. He was trying to take out the biggest threat in this competition. But he calmed down now and went to his Crystal Empire Express train at the train station to relax." "Ok, thanks Twilight." "Promise me that you won't do anything reckless?" "Don't worry, I just want to talk with him.", Rainbow Dash replied. But it didn't seem like a good enough answer to Twilight as how Rainbow Dash seen Twilight's look on her face. "And I promise that I won't do anything reckless." Twilight then smiled to Rainbow Dash. "Oh and one more thing Twilight. When you have your match. Give it some.....Attitude. And lets also meet face to face at the finals. "Attitude ?", Twilight repeated curiously as Rainbow Dash took off to the train station. When she got there, it was dark and quiet. Only a few lights were on to brighten up the area. She walks around looking for Shiny Armor. "Hello? Shiny Armor?.....Cadence?", said Rainbow Dash. But then she sees his shadows on the walls walking around, which it made her a bit upset that he didn't hear her. "Come back here you son of a B****.", said Rainbow Dash. Spike: "Rainbow Dash outside at the train station area. Looking for Shiny Armor." "Come here you little bastard." Suddenly a sound of a train engine could be heard. It started low, but got louder as Rainbow Dash stumbled onto the tracks and turned towards it. Seeing a train heading straight at her. Pinkie: "What is this?" Spike: "It's a train.....WAIT A MINUTE!!! Sweet Celestia! That train just ran over Rainbow Dash! That train just ran over Rainbow Dash! Rainbow Dash just got run down! Oh my.....Sweet Celestia.....Oh my.....Sweet Celestia. (Chapter 9) Spike: "Welcome back ladies and gentlecolts to PWF. Just moments ago during the Rainbow Dash and Filthy Rich match, Shiny Armor and Princess Cadance interupted to try and screw Rainbow Dash out of this tournament." Pinkie: "But they were not successful as Rainbow Dash was was victorious of her match." Spike: "But it didn't end there as she went on a hot pursuit chase following Shiny Armor to the train station, looking for him." Pinkie: "But then this happened. Rainbow Dash wad run down like a dog by Shiny Armor's Crystal Empire Express Train." Spike: "That's just sickening. That's a 4-legged living pegasus. During the commercial break, Medical Attention has arrived with an ambulance and long with her friends. Fluttershy, sorry that Pinkie and I can't be over there at the moment. But whats the situation looking?" Rainbow Dash's friends, Twilight, Rarity, Apple Jack, Fluttershy, Discord, Big Mac, and Spitfire, were there. Worried and hope for her a fast recovery as she was unconscious while the Medical Attention ponies lifted her up on to a stretcher. Including Filthy Rich and Mayor Mare who were pissed off about the accident, asking every pony that were around in formation on who did it or have they sden anything thing suspicious. "What the hell happen? Who did this? Did you see anything?" Fluttershy: "Well......as you can see. Medical Attention has arrived and lifting her up on a stretcher to go to the hospital. She tried flying up to avoid the train, but got caught by the smoke stack and tumbled over the train. They said she was lucky that she wasn't severely injured, but only gotten bumps and bruises. She is unconscious at the moment, but hope that she will wake up in the hospital. But the question is who did this and why? Also will she be able to show up at her next match tomorrow against Shiny Armor." Fluttershy reported back, trying as hard as she can to not cry so much on Camera. But to the others, who were there, had each different emotions." Apple Jack is the type who cries on the inside instead of the outside while gripping her hat to her chest. Big Mack was the same as Apple Jack. The only thing you would hear from him is a "E-Nope" Spitfire sees these types of situations at the Wonderbolts Academy. So it/s nothing new to her. All she could do is wish her a fast record. Rarity was worried about her. But she was also worried about the black leather vest that she designed for being torn. On that note, she was generous enough to go with her to the hospital. For Twilight Sparkle, she felt the worst. "This is my fault. How could I let this happen?", said Twilight. "Say what?", Apple Jack reacted. "What do you mean, Darling? How is this your fault?", Rarity asked "I told Rainbow Dash where Shiny Armor was at. If I hadn't, she would of never came here and get hit by a train. How could I be so careless? I'm sorry Rainbow Dash. It's all my fault.", said Twilight. Speaking to Rainbow Dash. "Twilight, It's not your fault. You had no idea this was gonna happen. Be at least glad that she didn't get hurt any worse than being knocked out. Right Big Mac?" "E-Yup!", Apple Jack cheering Twilight up along with here brother Big Mac. "Don't worry Twilight. We are all here for Rainbow Dash.", Fluttershy added in to cheer her up. "She'll be fine. She's a Wonderbolt. It will take a lot more than that to bring her down.", said Spitfire. "And if it will help, I'll be more than happy to go with her while you guys keep the show going.", Rarity being generous. "Thanks every pony. I don't know what I would do without you all. And your right. I shouldn't blame myself.", said Twilight. Getting a group huf from all of them. Accept Discord who was still had the television camera rolling. But wasn't happy about the loving moment. "Oh for goodness sake! You all suppose to be entertaining your audience. Not bored them to sleep with your friendship is magic.", said Discord. Mocking their bond. Look her Discord. This may be a competition, but doesn't mean we to be competitive all the time.", said Apple Jack. "You may not care about others feelings, Discord. But situations like this is more important.", Twilight followed up. As Discord just let their speeches go through his head from one ear and out the other. Not caring whats going on, but rather keep the audience entertained. He than noticed Shiny Armor and Princess Cadance approaching them. He knew things were about to heat up. So he went back to filming. "Well, things better get interesting again," "You son of a B****. You son of a B****. What the hell did you do?", Filthy Rich asked Shiny Armor aggressively. "I didn't do anything. I'm not gonna get blamed for this sh*t.", Shiny Armor argued back. "You! How could you?", yelled Twilight stepping into the argument. "You know what you did. Running over Rainbow Dash with your Crystal Empire Express Train." "What? I settle my business in the ring.", said Shiny Armor. "It doesn't matter what you say. The matter of facts is that you attached Rainbow Dash during her match. You told me that you were coming here. It is your express train that ran her over. And now you show up like nothing happened?" "But I......" "And I'll prove it by doing some investigating. When I do find that you are guilty. I'll stick those facts so far up your candy ass. If you smell lalalaloooooo.......What Twilight Sparkle is cookin'." "Whatever, lets go Cadence.", said Shiny Armor. Walking away from the crime scene. "Ummmmm.........Twilight? What was that about you said?", asked Apple Jack. Seeing Twilight act differently. Twilight felt good after what she just said. Being able to have her brother back off with this Attitude feeling that Rainbow Dash wad talking about. "I'm great! Just Great! Nothing like entertaining the crowd with some catch phrases. It doesn't matter what you say, or candy asses, or can you smell what Twilight Sparkle is cookin'. Ooooh I like that one." said Twilight zoning out and thinking of catch phrases. "Oooook........well you better bring your A-game or you will be singing some sweet Muzzle Music.", said Apple Jack as she headed back to the arena along with every pony else, while Rarity went to the hospital with Rainbow Dash.

  8. I got the idea when I was watching watching Queen Chrysalis episodes and it got me thinking, what would happen if she existed in G1 My Little Pony world? :lol: The story is that Queen Chrysalis showed up in Flutter Valley that is inhabited by Flutter Ponies who are ruled by Queen Rosedust. http://mylittlewiki.org/w/images/5/57/Rosedust.jpg One night, she captured Rosedust while she was sleeping and put her in a cocoon, disguised herself as Rosedust and impersonated her. One by one, the Flutter Ponies were slowly being replaced by the Changelings who also take their forms until Morning Glory was the last one. She got suspicious of her behavior and was nearly caught only to escape by heading over to Dream Valley to get other ponies for help. Skipping to the good part because I have a bad habit of writing a ridiculous long ass story and I don't want to bore you guys. When Megan and the ponies confronted Queen Rosedust, they noticed a big green cocoon at the ceiling, showing a real trapped Rosedust inside, along with other trapped Flutter Ponies. It dawned on them that they're the real ones while the Queen in front of them is not her at all. That's when she revealed that she is not Rosedust at all but none other than Chrysalis, Queen of the Changelings! >:3 The fake Flutter Ponies also revealed themselves as Changelings before attacking the ponies and Megan. What happens next? Will they defeat the evil Changelings and save the Flutter Ponies? Who knows? >D Just to let you know, it's not a chibi anthro form, I sort of drew her based on FIM style. The left side of Rosedust is based on the dress reference I made using the Sailor Senshi doll divine flash (love that game) and I changed her wings since I didn't really like the toys/TV version of it. She's also wearing a feather like crown based on this pic. http://mylittlewiki.org/w/images/5/59/Rosedust.PNG I added roses all over since it's based on her name. The right side of Chrysalis is that if you noticed on her neck and the lower right side, it's her collar and lower part of armor based on the comic, Fiendship is Magic. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/mlp/images/0/0c/FIENDship_is_Magic_issue_5_Chrysalis_and_Incitatus.png/revision/latest?cb=20160227005720 I didn't drew the entire armor and besides, you won't be able to see it anyway. As for her tail, it's floating behind her so you wouldn't see it as she's floating while changing back her true form.
  9. Part 1 JediShy stops on his way to Ponyville. He was tired but had to get his training done before sunset and if he got a room for the night he would never be able to bring himself to go back out. He found a clearing in what appeared to be an abandoned apple orchard. Shrugging out of his cloak he drew his saber and ignited the green blade. With the classical makashi salute he being his drills. Block high pushing the opponents saber up and draw the blade across and slash downward in an unblockable striiiii..... It takes all of his might to stop the blade centimeters from a pink pony that appeared out of nowhere. “ Oh hi, I'm Pinkie Pie and you must be new. That means you need a party! “ Jedishy stares in awe at this ponies apparent lack of awareness of what could have happened. Muttering the code to himself he slowly composes himself before responding. “ You could have seriously been hurt, Miss Pie. Have you not met a Jedi on a visit your planet before? I know you are relatively new to the Republic.” “ But cant you sense everypony in that force thingy? Why wouldn't you know I was coming? “ As the pink pony bounced ahead of him Jedi froze he could not believe it but she was right. He could feel all the life around him except for her. That must be reported to the order. Making a note he broke into a trot to keep up. “ So you never told me your name. I cant introduce you if I don't know your name silly “ “ I am Jedishy and I was actually raised in Ponyville for a bit. I was found as an infant and the search for the ship I was on and my force connection are what drew this planet to be connected to the Republic. Its also where I got my name “ “ Wait whaaaat you're a human raised by ponies?! “ “ Yes, I was raised alongside a filly by the name of Muffins for a bit. My name was a parting gift from the family that took care of me. “ As they closed on ponyville Jedi figured he would be able to get in at least some meditation this evening so that his training was not entirely neglected. He would love to see Muffins again as those where the only memories he had of his youth but he had a duty to visit Princess Twilight first. With a grin, he saw they were headed to Mrs. Cakes shop. Other than fun with Muffin the one thing he remembered from his youth was the treats from the shop. He wondered if Republic credits are good in Equestria... then again his Master might not approve of spending money on a needless treat...
  10. Everypony , excited this Friday a new crossover episode of Adventure Time Minecraft should be rainboom awesome! Not sure if this is new thing they are doing to this cartoon or just a one shot deal?
  11. All of these are commissions I've done in the past. #1- Original character reference sheet #2 and 3- MLP/Gundam 00 crossover. Making gundam armor fit pony bodies is rather difficult, but I managed! #4- Some Equestria Girls stuff. All the outfits are my design (except Rarity's). This one was rather fun; super0girly and all that (note: the Twi-Twilight here is "Sci-Twi")
  12. This is a MLP / Care Bears crossover fanfic Part 1- Alchemy It was a gloriously sunny day in Care-a-Lot, the gorgeous cloud city that was home of the Care Bears. A bright yellow bear by the name of Funshine stepped out of his cozy home and greeted the day with an exaggerated stretch. “Ahhh, what a spectacular day!” he hummed in a sing-song tone. He waved hello to his friends, two pastel pink bears who happened to be passing by on their morning jog. “Good Morning, Love-a-Lot! Morning, Cheer Bear!” “Good morning to you, Funshine!” they called out in unison. The warm-colored ball of fur watched them go by as he made his way down a paved pathway. He was thinking about taking a leisurely stroll, perhaps into the Forest of Feelings to visit his Care Bear Cousins, when a familiar voice called out his name in a cheerful whinny. “Funshine! Hey, Funshine, over here!” Looking around, the golden bear spotted a lavender equine trotting his way. It was Care-a-Lot’s co-founder, and patriarch, Noble Heart Horse! “What’s the matter, Noble Heart?” Funshine asked, a worried expression settling on his muzzle as Noble Heart’s hooves came to rest upon his shoulders. “I’ve got a job for you, and it’s very important. I’m extremely busy, but our old nemesis, No Heart is up to his old tricks again.” he warned, his voice commanding every bit of Funshine’s attention. “But the thing is, he’s not after us this time. Truthfully, I don’t know what he’s after.” Fear and concern dawned in the bear’s eyes as he listened intently. “So, what is it that you need me to do, Noble Heart?” he asked, warily. “I’ve been informed by a close friend of mine that No Heart may be lurking in the shadows in their lands….” he trailed off to momentarily will the apprehension in the pit of his gut back down from where it had lodged itself to create a lump in his throat. “A friend?” Funshine parroted. “Do I know them?” “Not yet, you don’t. But you will, soon. Come with me.” Taking his paw, Noble Heart quickly guided Funshine Bear toward his house, through entertainment and dining areas, until finally they came to the basement. Against the back wall stood a wide arcing rainbow with a reflective surface that gleamed and glittered with magic at its center. Funshine stared, confused and flabbergasted. “Wha…what is this, Noble Heart?” “This,” he gestured with a hoof. “is a magical gateway to a place that I hold just as dearly as Care-a-Lot. Someone very special to me helped make this bridge, and only True Heart Bear knew about it. Now you do, too. The lands that lie beyond here are like a second home to me, Funshine, so I need you to take this Caring Mission very seriously. If No Heart has invaded over there, for some reason, then I need you to do everything in your power to stop him.” Though this information was a lot to take in, Funshine hardened his gaze and gave a sharp nod. A paw raised to his forehead in respectful salute. “Yes sir, Noble Heart, sir!” “Good. Then off with you!” His own pounding heartbeat thundered in his ears, drowning out Noble Heart’s words. Step by step, Sunshine willed his shaking knees not to buckle as he advanced toward the magical portal. What would lie beyond its reflective surface? Was their long-time enemy, No Heart truly over in whatever strange and unpredictable world he was about to enter into? There was simply no telling anything, he supposed, until he made his way over into this brand new territory, to find out. His eyes shut tight as he passed beyond the multi-colored rainbow, his fur standing on end and surging with what felt like static jolts of magic. Then suddenly he felt somewhat heavier, as if gravity had somehow increased. “What the-?” Eyes snapped open so that he could survey himself, hoping to draw a conclusion about the added weight. But then his breath caught in his throat as he surveyed a landscape of lush green valleys with impossibly high, snowcapped mountains in the distance, white, cotton candy clouds overhead, a small, lavender-colored horse nearby, with a plum mane who Funshine could swear might have been related to Noble Heart Horse. “Hello!” he nervously called out, watching as the creature’s ears pricked and swiveled in his direction shortly before a pair of amethyst eyes landed on him. “Oh, thank Celestia!” she replied, lifting herself onto her hooves from the sitting position she had been in. Instantly, she closed the short distance between them, and momentarily seemed unable to prevent herself from doing some sort of nervous trot pacing. “You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting! Are you the representative that Noble Heart sent? Who am I kidding? You have to be, right?!” she shook her head, as if to clear her head and re-organize her racing thoughts. “I’m sorry. I’m Princess Twilight Sparkle. The ruler here….Princess Celestia of Equestria, sent me as an escort for you. You….you are Funshine Bear, right?” she asked. Funshine could only blink, trying to wrap his head around all that she had just blurted out. “Um…y-yeah, that’s me.” he nodded, unable to keep himself from staring at the feathery wings that were fanned out on either side of this creature. He had never heard of a horse having wings. Why on earth did she have wings? “Great!” she smiled nervously. “Come with me, then. Hop on!” “Pardon me?” “On my back!” she clarified, curtly. Her purple wings folded into a rest position at her sides, allowing him to mount her more easily. “O- oh….” Funshine fumbled, approaching her warily, and maneuvering himself onto her back. Barely having time to hold on, he found her flapping hard and rising up into the sky, taking him with her. “Wh-whoaaaa!” he yelped, furry arms wrapped tight around Twilight Sparkle’s neck. Higher and higher, they ascended until the trees and what he assumed were other colorful horses on the ground far below looked like ants. In what seemed like an eternity, though Twilight had assured him in between panted breaths that they had only been traveling for two, they reached a glistening city of gold and royal purple hues. A fantastic castle with alabaster pillars and lookout towers that seemed to scrape the clouds stood at attention, commanding admiration and awe from any citizen who dared to step within its courtyards, or even admire if from a distance. “Wow, we don’t have anything like this in Care-a-lot.” Funshine Bear breathed. A gentle, playful nudge was given by Twilight, a smirk pulling at her lips. “This,” she spoke. “Is the Capital City of Canterlot, and the home of Equestria’s brave and radiant ruler, Princess Celestia.” Walking side by side with him, they passed through the castle gates and guard towers, past two security checkpoints, and were provided with a royal guard to accompany them to the day courts of the Princess, once they had been cleared. “I believe that you’ll find the security measures appropriate, Princess Sparkle.” The stallion guard spoke as she and Funshine kept pace with him. “Princess Celestia has decreed the increased security at the palace and throughout the city the behest of Princess Cadance in the Crystal Empire, since rumors of a threat had been traced from the north.” “I understand. We can’t take any chances.” Twilight nodded, though this was all fresh information to her. Though she too bore a crown that would identify her as royalty to the Equestrian populace, Twilight understood that she was far lower in rank than the three other known Princesses, and played less of a role in being allowed knowledge that the others were privy to. Thinking back, she realized, that that was how it had always been, even before she had been crowned. However, she bore her mentor, Celestia no ill will in spite of it. The three arrived towering golden double doors that shone like the sun itself and was polished to the extent of it seeming like liquid diamond. Above the doors themselves was an intricately detailed sun insignia. The two guards that were posted at either side of it stood at attention before the higher ranked stallion and purple pony Princess that approached them. However, both drew curious glances at Funshine from behind their polished helmets. Funshine, though wary of the muscled and stoic stallions smiled and waved a paw in greeting. Once access had been granted, the two guards pushed open the heavy doors and announced their presence to the Princess awaiting their arrival inside. A snow white mare seated upon a cushioned golden throne solemnly nodded her thanks before the guards retreated to their posts before Twilight Sparkle and Funshine were allowed to enter. “Greetings, Princess.” Twilight said, respectfully. “I brought the guest to you, just as you asked!” “Thank you, Twilight.” Celestia’s voice cooed, melting like warm butter in Funshine’s ears, and putting him at ease. “You may be dismissed.” he then heard her say, before Twilight departed from his side, albeit with a disappointed look on her face. And then he was alone with the regal white Princess, save for three winged ponies of different colors who immediately flew from three of the four corners of the room to flank the Princess on either side. For a while, hardened purple eyes surveyed him, studied him intensely, and the bear soon found himself shifting uncomfortably under the weight of the silence between them. A moment more, and she dismissed her Pegasi guards back to their posts, once having ascertained that the cub was of no threat. “Funshine Bear, is it?” Celestia at long last spoke, her voice for his furry ears alone. “Child of the Ursa?” “Yes, your Highness.” Another moment of silence passed, shorter this time, before Celestia rose from her throne on long, slender legs. Golden horseshoes on the end of her hooves clacked and clopped lightly as she descended a set of stairs on her elevated platform and advanced toward him. Her hair, the color of auroras radiated around her, as if defying gravity and having a life of its own. “Thank you for coming all this way. Noble Heart spoke fondly of you in his letters, and ensured that you would be able to assist in the protection of my subjects.” Funshine only watched her, wondering what she could possibly have in mind for him to do that dozens of trained guard ponies and at least one other pony Princess could not. Just how powerful was Care-a-Lot’s nemesis, No Heart, in this world? “I assume that Noble Heart made you aware of Equestria’s circumstances?” “Only to the barest minimum, your Highness.” the bear replied. “I really don’t know what he…or you expect me to do, or even why No Heart chose to come here.” “You will soon enough.” she murmured, just as mysteriously as the Care-a-Lot co-founder, Noble Heart had. Funshine really wished that they would quit doing that! Though, on the other paw, he supposed that he could see some slight resemblances beginning to surface….. “Come.” she urged. The noble ruler moved with fluid grace out of the throne room and down a lengthy corridor lined with luxurious ruby red carpeting. Up flights of spiraling staircases she walked in silence, Funshine cautiously following behind, rather than alongside, as he remained unsure whether he had the right, and remained ignorant of these ponies’ customs. “Behold,” she finally said, once reaching stepping outside onto a veranda that overlooked the entire city and far out into the valleys below the mountain on which the elevated city sat. Funshine took in the breathtaking sight, his heart soaring in his chest. Directly below, there were countless ponies bustling about the paved streets, and further still, into the valleys, he could spot numerous clusters of towns with an unfathomable amount of ponies inhabiting them also. “My subjects are very dear to me, Funshine,” she continued in a motherly tone. “I would give everything I have and everything I am in order to protect them. I have succeeded in doing so many times, both alone, and with the aid of my dear sister. But now, I need your aid, Funshine, child of the Ursa.” Her gleaming, golden crown atop her gravity-defying mane glittered in the sunlight, almost as if announcing its presence to Funshine and alerting him of the gravity of the responsibilities placed on the head of the one who bore it. The bear fought to swallow the hard lump that had lodged itself in his throat. His paws instinctively moved to touch the gleaming symbol that was a smiling sun on his tummy; his own unique Belly Badge. He, too- with the help of his own friends and family had vanquished many villains who sought to destroy their home and ideals. His sense of duty trampled whatever fears and apprehension he might’ve had at that very moment, and he puffed out his chest, determined to do his very best to protect these ponies’ lands too. “Next week, my subjects will celebrate a most momentous occasion, which is the Summer Sun Celebration.” she told Funshine. “I have reason to believe that an enemy from your lands has trespassed into ours, and may be planning to disrupt this event with their nefarious schemes. My abilities allow me great power, and due to the sun’s position at the height of this event, it will be exponentially increased, but I’m sure that you are aware that with great power comes greater control.” Funshine nodded, locking eyes with the magnificent ruler. “How can I help?” he pressed. Celestia smiled, looking back out into the distance. “For starters, we shall get you caught up on the traditions and aiding in preparations for the Summer Sun Celebration, here in Canterlot.” The bear blinked slowly. “Excuse me?” he was uncertain whether he had heard the Princess properly. Was she truly expecting him to come to these strange lands merely to be a party planner?! The proud Alicorn winked, clearly planning more than what the initial assignment entailed. “What better way to keep an eye out for danger than to be ready to spot any suspicious activity among my subjects, wouldn’t you agree?” – – – – – “Haaaaaa!” Funshine heaved an exhausted sigh as he threw himself into the nearest plush chair and stretched out once the day had come to an end. His paws sore from walking the endless expanse of the Canterlot castle, muscles stiff from carrying tension under constant surveillance, and his ears ringing from the voices of hundreds of bustling townsfolk and the demands of the elite upper class, the burned-out bear couldn’t recall a time where he had ever been so utterly bushed! Princess Celestia stood, though she appeared just as tired from the day’s activities as he was. However, after a thousand years or more of ruling, she had gotten accustomed to the role that was required of her; as a ruler and protector of her ponies. “Many thanks for your assistance today, Funshine Bear.” she spoke formally. “When you are ready to retire to your quarters, you’ll find that any guard posted along the halls of this castle will take you. I hope you find your accommodations suitable.” “Thank you for your generosity, Princess Celestia.” Funshine found just enough strength left in his furry body to remember to sit up properly in the presence of the noble Alicorn. She gave a small nod and a warm smile. “May I count on you tomorrow to lend your aid to Equestria’s defenses. Until then, may Luna bless your night and guard your dreams.” Watching her and her accompanying guards leave, the golden bear stretched his legs and reluctantly got back on his feet. Finding his room and getting to rest sounded like a fantastic idea! Much as he would’ve liked to avoid having to spend his remaining hours of the day in the company of any more guard surveillance, Funshine highly doubted that he would be able to manage to find his room on his own. There were far too many corridors that were lined with the same looking door in every one, in this place! There was no doubt that if he tried to get to his room alone, he’d be up searching for it clear until the next morning! No, with as much security there was around the premises, it’d be easier to find a guard on patrol or at their post than it was to go it alone. With his mind made up, Funshine Bear headed in the opposite direction Celestia had gone, hoping he’d run into someone soon. Fortunately, no sooner had he stepped around the corner did he get his wish! At least two unicorn guards were stationed around one of the doors in this hallway, perhaps protecting whatever precious artifacts or royal treasures were locked up in the room. “Excuse me.” he called out. “I’m Funshine, a guest of Princess Celestia’s, and I was hoping that one of you could take me to my room.” The guards looked at each other, then back to the brightly-colored bear as if he had suddenly sprouted a second head. “Sir, this is your room.” “Then why is it being guarded if I’m not in it?” Another exchanged look between them began to rouse Funshine’s curiosity. “The Princess had decided it best to accommodate you with a room that would be shared with another guest.” One guard explained, vaguely. Eyebrows drawn together, Funshine pushed past the door to be greeted with soft, childlike laughter and the soothing fragrance of lavender. A young pony, a periwinkle colored filly, bounced with abandon around the room, clearly having more energy than he at the moment. “Hi, little one. Who are you?” he asked once having closed the door behind him. The energetic young equine threw herself face down into a plush pink pillow, laughing all the while. Once all her gleeful giggles had been expelled out of her system, she looked up and smiled. “I’m Star Dreams! And who are you?” “I’m Funshine Bear! Celestia invited me to….stay with you….I guess….” he trailed off, still not understanding the Princess’ line of reasoning. If putting him in a room with someone was for security reasons, then surely this young girl couldn’t be the one to watch him. Or was he to watch her? The tired bear sighed, spotting a second bed on the other side of the room, and immediately went to it. Whatever questions he had, he was sure that he could run them by the Princess in the morning, if her – or his- schedule allowed it. “Well, time to get some shut eye. Goodnight, Star Dreams.” he allowed his eyes to close, and quickly fell into a deep sleep. – – – – – – “Pleasant evening, Sister.” Princess Luna spoke as she landed on the elder siblings’ balcony, just as Celestia was retiring to her room for the night. “Welcome, Luna.” the white Alicorn sighed just as she wearily collapsed onto a plush pile of cushions, allowing her tired bones to rest. “As you can see,” The navy blue Alicorn reported, as she hopped down from the golden banister that she had been perched upon. “The moon has been raised and thus now begins my patrol of the Everfree forest. I will patrol the dreamscape after I ascertain that the forest borders are secure.” As she stepped to Celestia, she offered her a tender nuzzle. “Sleep, my sister. May your dreams allow you a reprieve from the day’s anxieties.” Celestia returned the affectionate gesture, offering an additional whinny of reassurance to keep Luna from worrying too much. “Before you leave,” she spoke, just as Luna turned to depart back out from her balcony. “That little one who you invited to sleep in the castle…..are you certain that she is the one?” Luna nodded. “Make no mistake, sister. That filly is strong, though she is only beginning to come into her powers. Whatever threat may befall our lands, she will assist in protecting them. I’m certain of it.” Her wings flared out to either side and she leapt into the cool night air. “Just as I do not doubt that your guest will look out for her.” Saying nothing more, she took off into the sky, leaving Celestia to re-evaluate and reinforce her trust in her planning. – – – – – Funshine Bear fidgeted as he walked through an unfamiliar landscape of smoky tendrils of shadow. A chill ran through the air. There were no warm, fluffy clouds of his Care-a-Lot home, no cheerfully singing birds or joyful voices of his Care Bear family or Cousins, just a deep, dark sense of loneliness within the dreadful landscape. “Hello?” he dared to call out, though he suspected that he was truly alone. “Is anyone out there?” As he trudged through the desolate wasteland, his footsteps appeared to grow heavy, as if he was walking through water. A hazy image, a tower of some sort, he realized, could be spotted in the distance. Just as he considered taking another step toward it, however, a familiar voice, like that of the coldest shadows, slithered in his ears. “It is nearly time, and the preparations are underway! Your arrival will be met with terror and darkness the likes of which this world has never seen!” There was no mistaking it! It had to be No Heart! But then, a second voice, unfamiliar to Funshine, issued an amused and confident chuckle. “I do not doubt it, heartless one. Just make sure that everything proceeds as planned, without any interference. Or else.” The bear’s fur stood on end, and his heartbeat quickened as he overheard these nefarious plans. It was clear to him that the gravity of the situation had suddenly become far more dire! No Heart wasn’t working alone! What was worse, Funshine decided, was that he had no idea what horrible villains were capable of in this world of magical little ponies! Even so, he had been summoned here to help them. He had given his word to Princess Celestia that he would aid in protecting the lives and virtues of her subjects! Whoever No Heart was scheming with, there was no doubt that both of them had to be stopped! It was then the ground shook and split open, throwing Funshine into a freefall to the deepest pits of the ears. “Nooooooo!” he cried out, his paws fumbling to grab hold of something, anything, that would halt his descent. Desperately clawing the air, he awakened, wide-eyed and gasping for air. His lungs burned and his heart raced. “Ooooh.” coming to a realization where he was, in the safety of a room in Canterlot castle, he allowed his head to sink heavily into his paws. “What a horrible dream.” An unfamiliar tightness around his tummy made him peek through his paws at the young filly cuddled up close and sharing his bed with him. Last he checked, he had gone to bed alone, though…..he didn’t necessarily mind her company, tonight. “Are you ok, Funshine?” a small, sleepy voice asked him, though partially muffled by the fur of his tummy. “Did you have a bad dream? You were yelling…..” “Yeah. Yeah. I didn’t mean to wake you, Star Dreams. Let’s go back to bed, ok?” Not wanting to worry her even further, he said nothing more. A yellow paw lightly combed back her tri-colored mane before Funshine willed himself to lie back down and think of things more pleasant than impending doom upon this world. “Funshine Bear, sir!” a Royal guard pony commanded attention as he thrust the door to the shared bedroom open with a hoof. “Princess Celestia has requested your presence in the western wing of the castle, immediately! Her Highness wishes to discuss your duties for the day over breakfast, and her schedule cannot be hindered!” Without waiting, he advanced to the bed, levitating the sheets off of the still snoozing bear. “Hup, hup!” “Wh-wha-?” Funshine groaned, wincing automatically, though no harsh light had even begin to shine through the window. The sun had just barely risen over the horizon! He rubbed the sleep from his eyes and inched out of bed, noticing that Star Dreams was just beginning to rouse from sleep also. “Alright, I’m up. I’m up.” he moaned, as the burly stallion pushed him toward the door. He combed down his fur the best he could with his paws as he tried to keep pace with the guard. “Mr Bear, you are precisely three minutes and forty-two seconds late for your arranged meeting with Princess Celestia.” An aged unicorn who worked as her royal scheduling adviser scolded the bright yellow fuzzball no sooner had he entered the room where the Princess was just finishing a healthy breakfast and demurely wiping her muzzle with a napkin. “Funshine, good morning!” The Princess chirped merrily. “I trust that you slept well?” The tardy and uncertain ursidae tried his best to hide a frown from his own muzzle, hoping to push the frightening dream that he had from his mind. “I suppose that I don’t sleep well in unfamiliar places….’” he trailed off, deliberately dancing around the subject. “Oh. I’m terribly sorry.” Celestia apologized. “Well in any case, I hope that you find your day to be more enjoyable. There’s a lot to get done before the Summer Sun Celebration gets underway, here in Canterlot. Perhaps you can assist a special guest that I booked for the event? She’s situated in a suite within the east wing. My guards can take you there.” she decided. Funshine bowed. “It would be my honor, Princess.” “Very well, then I shall see you at the day’s end.” – – – – – – Funshine Bear soon found himself standing in front of a medium-sized door that led to the reserved room of a pony by the name of “The Great and Powerful Trixie”, from what he gathered from the guard that led him there. “Here goes nothing.” he sighed as he knocked on the door. No answer. He knocked once more, louder this time, and pressed an ear to the door. There was no doubt about it, he could hear her talking to someone from inside. “Come In!” Funshine heard Trixie say, at long last, and entered the room. However, there wasn’t a pony at the door to greet him. Muzzle scrunched slightly in confusion, he wandered about until he came across the bathroom, finding the door had been left open. “Uhm…I hope I’m not interrupting anything.” Funshine murmured as he peeked in, only to find a sky blue made soaking in a luxurious bubble back, and talking to….herself? “Coming soon, to your back alley little town….The Great and Powerful Trrrrrrixie’s Incredible Equestria Tour!” the boisterous pony bellowed as she fawned over her reflection in the large mirrors surrounding the bathtub. “Excuse me, Trixie?” Funshine cleared his throat. Startled, the stage performer shrieked and splashed about in the sudsy water. “Guards! Guards! There’s an intruder in the Great and powerful Tricie’s room!” Funshine held out his paws. “No, I’m not! You said ‘come in’!” he insisted. “I said ‘coming’!” the pastel pony bickered. “And I wasn’t talking to you, I was rehearsing my lines for my stage show! And just who are you, anyway?” she hissed, climbing out of the tub and grabbing a towel to wrap around her. The bear averted his gaze, allowing the pony her privacy while she dried off. “I’m Funshine Bear, from Care-a-Lot. Princess Celestia sent me to assist you in setting up for your show for the Summer Sun Celebration.” “I see.” Trixie hummed. “The great and Powerful Trixie does have a lot to accomplish before then. There’s a new act that the Great and Powerful Trixie has been wanting to perform, but I’ll need a few items to make it work.” she decided. A moment later, she adorned herself in a purple cape and a tall, pointed magician’s hat. “Come on, assistant!” “Maybe you can tell me what we’re doing?” Funshine wondered as he followed Trixie to the Canterlot castle Library. Trixie grinned, a mischievous spark lighting up in her eyes. “Alchemy. It’s a lost art that was rumored to have been practiced in the days before Equestria was ever founded. Rumor has it, it was far more spectacular and powerful than the magic that is practiced today! And seeing as how the Great and Powerful Trixie needs only the very best for The great and Powerful Trixie’s show for the Summer Sun Celebration, we have to find these artifacts!” she explained while she waltzed through the library’s door, pausing to flash her guest I.D. to the librarian and two on duty unicorn guards. “That sounds dangerous.” Funshine fretted. “There is no trick too dangerous for the Great and Powerful Trixie to perform and come out unscathed!” the blue braggart bellowed, only to elicit a round of strained shushes from the librarian. “Oops. Sorry.” she squeaked, tiptoeing to the ‘restricted’ shelves. A heavy, leather back book was grabbed with her magical aura, and flipped open. “Here it is.” she smiled. “The first item we need to find is the Solstice Necklace. Given its name, I’d assume that this would be in the possession of Princess Celestia.” “You mean, we’re going to steal it?” Funshine frowned. “I don’t think I like this idea very much.” “Not stealing,” Trixie huffed. “Borrowing! And of course we’re going to ask her for it, and give it back by the end of the Festival. There’s no way that The Great and Powerful Trixie is ending up imprisoned in some dark and dirty dungeon for stealing from Equestrian royalty!” Funshine Bear suppressed a sigh. This pony, he soon realized, had quite the personality! Though the day had just barely begun, he could already suspect that it was going to be a long one. Though neither of them were privy to Princess Celestia’s schedule that day, they made their way through the complex maze of castle corridors in attempt to find a pathway that led to what Trixie believed would be the royal quarters of the alabaster Alicorn. Perhaps, she figured, that rather than wearing the necklace out in public, Celestia would have it kept in her room until it came time to wear it for a special occasion, such as the Summer Sun Celebration. Funshine studied the self-proclaimed ‘great and powerful’ magician, beginning to wonder what this pony was truly capable of. “You know,” he hummed, hoping to break the monotony of silence between them as they pressed forward. “I’ve been meaning to ask you…..do you have any idea where you’re going?” Trixie froze, then turned to look at him in disbelief. How dare he! How dare he imply that she had no sense of direction, to have been leading them in circles! Her muzzle began to take on a shade of rose pink beneath her blue fur, and she stomped a hoof down on the carpeted floors. “The Great and Powerful Trixie is beside herself with indignation! You, a lowly assistant, dare to insult Trixie’s intelligence by having the audacity to imply-” Funshine held up a paw, before she began a ‘great and powerful’ grand speech that would’ve kept them rooted in the spot for at least another hour. ‘It’s just,” he pointed out. “We’ve passed that same flower vase up ahead twice now.” Walking toward it, he waved a paw at the miniature golden Belly Badge symbol that he had marked the vase’s stand with. Trixie’s face turned even redder than before, before she lifted her muzzle in the air to maintain her elaborate facade. “O-of course, the Great and Powerful Trixie would familiarize herself with the area by ensuring the same path be traveled thrice! Forward, assistant!” Thus, after many wrong turns, and retreaded corridors, they finally came to what appeared to be the Princess’ private chambers. A lone guard stood stiff as a board beside the closed door, but turned his head the very moment he and Trixie approached. “Halt!” he barked, making them both freeze in their tracks. “No access is permitted to the public or castle guests beyond this point.” ‘So much for that plan.’ Funshine decided. Of course they wouldn’t be allowed to simply waltz in the Princess’ room and window shop for a powerful artifact that would aid Trixie in her silly magician’s tricks! What had she been thinking? Just as he was about to turn around, her hoof stopped him. Curiously, the bear watched as the conceited, yet clever magician began to engage the guard, putting on her best puppy-dog look and pout, while pitching some sad story about how they were lost- which wasn’t entirely a lie- and how Celestia had possibly left an item in her room that had been needed, although Trixie conveniently didn’t go into detail about the matter of who needed it, so that it would appear to the guard that Celestia was the one who had sent Trixie as a courier. Funshine was about to protest, but he hesitated, suddenly unsure if he should. The magician hadn’t necessarily lied, though she did use choice words in a sort of slight-of-hand way. He really wasn’t sure if he should chastise her, or commend her. “Thank you, good sir.” Trixie tipped her oversized hat to the guard as she and Funshine were granted access to the room and began their search for the Solstice Necklace. To Be Continued…...
  13. Will Megan From My Little Pony (G1) Be Introduced Into Friendship Is Magic Via Equestria Girls? Here (in this short video) I explain how she could be finally intrdouced into G4 of MLP, known as Friendship is Magic, via it's connected spinoff, Equestria Girls. Comments are Welcomed
  14. In the distant future there is only war. The Corpse Emperor sits on his throne, immobile due to wounds succumbed while facing his once most favored of sons, the Warmaster, Thrice Damned be his name, Horus, the best, the brightest, Lupercal. There sits a jar inside the Emperor's Children Apothecarion, labelled "Honourable Soulaka," a Techmarine of legendary providence, murdered by the vile machinations of Fabius Bile, the gene-render of the III Legion. Also next to it sits a jar with the progenoid gland with the sigil of the Imperial Fists, the Sons of Dorn. These two jars are combined some years later into the being known as the Half-Breed, the bastard, Honsou. Honsou is a lowly line captain competing with First Captain Forrix and Assault Captain Kroeger for the favor of the one known only as the "Warsmith," Formerly Known as Barban Falk. The Warsmith's Fleet has descended from Medrengard to a planet called Hydra Cordatus. Only one soul knows the reasoning behind the sudden invasion. The Warsmith chooses not to reveal his secrets, as his ascendancy to daemonhood relies on the success of the mission. After months of hard campaigning and the multitude of the thunder of guns of all caliber, and even a Planetary Defence Torpedo, Falk has succeeded. The Fortress he built at the dawn of the Imperium has been broken open, it's secret Gene-seed vault laid open to him. He offers this up to the dark gods, and they are pleased, and Falk is elevated to princedom in eternal damnation. Honsou's competition did not survive the assault, Forrix came out second best in a fight with a Warhound Titan, and Kroeger, in a sick twist of fate was betrayed the god of blood he chose to follow, and laid low by a mere mortal whom he thought he could break for enjoyment. Moving Forward, Honsou's fortress of Khalan Gol on Medrengard had been destroyed by the Ultramarines captain Uriel Ventris. He swore revenge. The warmaster made pacts which would destroy the soul of a mere mortal, he formed alliances with beings so unholy as to not utter their names for fear of eternal damnation, yet even that wasn't enough, the stalwart defenders of the Imperium repulsed his assault at the heart of Maccragge, and Honsou fled into the warp. As many know, the Warp is a fickle being, and time, reality, and even matter are nothing compared to the whims of the beings there. The Warsmith emerged from the Abyss some time later changed. He now resembles something of an Equine animal from the picts on Ancient Terra, his armor having morphed to match his new frame, Necrodermis Arm forging a leg and hoof of unbreakable iron, his mind is still sharp, he realizes that he alone has made the transition back to realspace. He descends upon the world below him. The land of Equestria awaits, yet the Warmaster is a master of guile and deceit. Knowing his weapons are going to be useless in his altered form, he discards his daemon axe, and his ruinous bolter. If the Warsmith is going to enslave the world, it's going to be with Hoof and tooth. Yet the fire of ambition once more returns inside of him, to be able to return to his own reality, and be able to exact vengeance upon the hated warriors of Ultramar, and to finally carve a path through to Terra, and finally end the Corpse Emperor's reign.
  15. I'm currently making a My Singing Monsters/My Little Pony fanfiction story. I may need help on the editing. Anyone wish to proof read?
  16. Just decided to create a big topic so I can post my doodles I do (almost) daily. I don't have my own artstyle, so it will change a lot. Also will have a lot of Jasper because she's my favorite character on the entire show.
  17. This is a blurb I wrote of a scene completely (and shamelessly) lifted off and ripped off of this: ... ... ... “Stop right there!” Ambrose turned to the direction of shouting voice and saw that it came from Sunset Shimmer. With an ornate wooden box under her arm she is standing by both versions of Twlight Sparkle. With them are their five other human friends, and they all stood at the head of the assembled student body of Canterlot High. “Sunset Shimmer!” the lich cried in acknowledgement. “I was just thinking how great it would be to have an audience and here you all are. You have granted my wish. Good day to you, children.” Sunset stared hard at Ambrose. Holding out the box, she opened it and slowly withdrew its contents. Everyone is gasp in total shock at what they saw she was holding; the tiara holding the one of the elements of harmony. The element of magic! Sunset’s friends are shocked and shakened to their core. Twilight is taken aback, not knowing how to react. She didn’t even know the element was gone in the first place, let alone that Sunset Shimmer had stolen it once again, and she is afraid to wonder what she intends to do with it. The only ones not gawking at Sunset and the Element of Magic in disbelief was the corpse and his retinue. Sunset said sternly and grimly, “Unless your wish is for me to turn into a demon and for you and your gang to turn into charcoal, I suggest you drop that book!” “In this, my greatest hour, I do have another wish. But it’s not that,” Ambrose replied rather jovially, holding up the ancient codex for all to see. “It’s to have a happy reconciliation with the unicorn-girl that gave me purpose. After all, I wouldn’t be the lich I am today if it weren’t for you.” “Your purpose is interdimensional conquest!” Sunset shouted back. “And don’t you blame me for what happened to you!” “I’m merely expressing gratitude.” Sunset eyes narrowed at Ambrose. “I think you should express an apology.” Ambrose laughed. “Oh no, she didn’t. Apologize to you? Pardon me if I say poppycock!” “Then say it!” “Poppycock.” She only narrowed her eyes again, still looking at the standing corpse venomously. “You let us down. You let both our worlds down.” “You let ME down, you hypocrite!” Ambrose shot back with irritation in his voice. “You, who had once complained about not getting desert before dinner, went on and on about how sweet the candy was, then told me to NEVER put it in my mouth and got mad at me when I did!” “If by ‘candy’ you mean ancient forbidden evil, then YES, I told you not to put it in your mouth!” Princess Twilight’s eyebrows furrowed when she at last muster the courage to enter the verbal exchange. “She’s right,” She spoke to the Lich. “It’s like you said. Sunset’s crime was being impatient, but she just wanted to learn things she is just not ready for yet. What you want were dark powers that no one should ever have.” “That may be so, pony princess,” Ambrose replied back to Twilight, “but that doesn’t stop me from wanting it, so...” His skeletal hands begin to undo the bindings of the ancient tome, prompting Sunset raise the purple jeweled tiara over her head. “Don’t move or I’ll incinerate all of you!” “Is that so? I would like to see you try after THIS!” ... ... ... Feed back and criticism is much appreciated.
  18. I made new cover art for my profile, whats your opinion?
  19. So,I'm writing a crossover fic.I wanted to get some feedback on it,and so I'm doing a little preview of it.Here you go: Prolouge:The Darkness Consumes Tails frowned as he turned the knob on the front door. He had been having a good time talking with the others at Cream's weekly tea party,(And watching Knuckles squirm),when Sonic's Omochao came by with a message,telling him he needed to come home,and that there was a problem. And so, he hightailed it back,only to find...nothing. Absolutely nothing. No badniks attacking,no damage,no storms,no glowing objects...nothing. Every once in a while,Sonic did play pranks...but this wasn't a prank. Tails could feel it. So...what scared the blue hedgehog enough that he needed Tails? The answer was inside the house,not outside,so taking a deep breath,the young fox opened the door. "S-Sonic?What is it? W-where are you?" Leaving the door open,the yellow fox started creeping towards the stairs that led up to Sonic's room. "Sonic if this is a prank, please stop. Sonic? Come on,Sonic! What is going on?" Tails reached the stairs and,spinning his tails,flew to the top. He peeked around the corner,and shaking,he inched around it. Sonic's room was at the end of the hall,and Tails could see that the door was slightly open,and light was coming from it. He shivered. When he had first met Sonic,he was scared of everything. Now,he faced things that used to scare him everyday. But for some reason,he still dreaded opening that door. But if it's to help Sonic...Then I will do it. Tails reached his hand out...and poked the door.Because it was already open,Tails was able to see inside the room. His eyes widened in shock. "Oh no...Sonic,what did you do?" This isn't the entire prolouge.Just the first part.Anyway,tell me what you think.

  22. So, this idea needs a lot of work and any plot holes or anything like that are because this is only starting to form. So, I was thinking, I really want the show to end with a big, game-changing finale in a similar vein to shows like Gravity Falls and Avatar: The Last Airbender, so me and my 8-year old sister have been discussing what the last ever MLP episode would be if it were up to us. It would be a three-parter, because there really is a lot to our idea. It would take too long to explain the plot, so I'm gonna go over each featured character and explain their arc. However, I will say the basic plot is that it is revealed that Celestia and Luna actually have a brother (let's call him TBA because we don't have a name tbh), who was meant to return from his banishment at the same time as Nightmare Moon (there's a twist - it's revealed that Luna turned evil because of TBA's power to do so and NOT because of jealousy). It has been four years at the time of this finale since Luna returned, so everyone is on red alert. Well, of course he does so (he's an allicorn and harbors extremely powerful magic and manipulation powers) and it's up to all these characters to stop him. Twilight Sparkle: - Helps to defeat TBA. Her and the rest of the Mane Six attempt to use the Elements of Harmony but they are useless against him At the end of Part 3, she becomes the new Princess of the Moon, taking Luna's place (read on and it'll make sense). Applejack: - It is revealed that there is an afterlife in the MLP universe and in that scene, she gets to finally see Pear Butter and Bright McIntosh again. Rainbow Dash: - Has been giving Scootaloo flying lessons for several months and with the help of Tirek (more of that later), she performs a sonic rainboom with her at one point. Fluttershy: - When TBA announces his plans to enslave other dimensions as well as Equestria (there may be an Equestria Girls link!!), Fluttershy immediately heads to Discord's and a romance between the pair is developed across the parts. Discord helps defeat TBA. Pinkie Pie: Don't know really. Rarity: She is forced to reject Spike when he finally confesses to her, but they remain friends. The CMC: We finally see them fight alongside The Mane Six They are the ones who fetch the Elements and there is a possible Timberwolf fight scene in the Everfree Forest when they do so. Princess Celestia: Is killed by TBA. Now, this sounds CRAZY, but hear me out: we see both Luna (who is also killed) and Celestia in the afterlife sequence, so they aren't completely gone. Princess Cadance: Becomes the new Princess of the Sun. Flurry Heart: All I'm gonna say is she is the key to defeating TBA. Tirek: Queen Chrysalis helps him break out of prison and they go to exact revenge on both Starlight Glimmer and the Mane Six; however, after Chrysalis is enslaved by TBA, he decides to join forces with the Mane Six. His power is what enables Cadance and Twilight to take Luna and Celestia's places, and enable Scootaloo to finally be equal to Rainbow Dash in flying!! Starlight Glimmer: Becomes the new Princess of Friendship!!! OTHER NOTES: Starswirl the Bearded is also the KEY to defeating TBA. I don't know how yet but there has to be something about him in there. G1 and G2 characters like the Seaponies Wavedancer and Seawinkle will make appearances.
  23. The Mane Pokemons Part 1 The Mane Pokemons Part 1 Chapter 1. A Twilight Is Dawning ”It’s in the middle of the afternoon!” Spike exclaimed. ”You are supposed to be at town hall by now.” Twilight, the princess of friendship, was scanning her bookshelf fiercely while hovering in the air using her wings. ”Twilight!” Spike attempted But Twilight was way to deep inside her logical brain to hear what the small dragon was saying. Suddenly she caught a smell of burning paper. ”My books!” Twilight screamed. She suddenly wailed her head around. Spike, the dragon Twilight had hatched as a filly and grown up with, was burning a small piece of empty parchment. ”Finally.” Spike said as he blew out the fire. Twilight made a breath of relief. ”As i said. You need to get to the ceremony.” Spike worded as he reminded Twilight of the major event at town hall. ”It’s just a formal celebration Spike” Twilight said calmly. ”But you are the princess of friendship. The Major are probably expecting you to have a speech” ”Sorry Spike. It just have to wait. This is too important. When Rarity was in the johto region the locals where able to capture here inside the… what was it? ”Pokeball.” Spike said. Johto was one of the regions in the foreign world of pokemons and humans. It was located in another dimension from Equestria. A while back Rarity, one of Twilights friends, had been accidentally sent there by Discord. She had there been mistaken for being a pokemon, attacked and almost captured by the thing the local human species called pokeballs. Twilight continued to answer Spikes question. ”Thats it Spike. Pokeballs. But how can that be possible if it is true what we have been told, that only pokemons can reside in them Spike? What if there is a biological connection between the pokemons in johto and the ponies of equestria?” Twilight was talking faster and faster. ”What if the pokemons originate from Equestria? What if we originate from their world? What if we are ALL pokemons Spike?!” Twilight paused and caught sight of Spikes frowned face. She took a deep breath and continued. ”But even if we put all that aside. The main question remains. What exactly ARE pokeballs. What if the perceived truth we have heard, that they can only capture pokemons, are wrong? What if they can capture and imprison ALL inter dimensional species? That means they could be used as a weapon. No Spike, this is for the sake of Equestria. I must find out more about them.” ”Then why are you looking through your bookshelves?” Spike asked. ”If Johto is in another dimension doesn’t that mean that information can only be found there?” Twilight laughed ”Oh, in know that Spike. I was just doing some last minute reorganization.” She said and put on a large smile. Spike rolled his eyes Spike and Twilight exited the shining castle they resided in. It was made out of ruby rocks and was sparkling in the summer sun. They where headed to wherever Twilight was going, which Spike hoped in vain was the Town hall celebration. Twilight was carrying a bag of blank parchments and quills. ”I have to talk to Discord. We are gonna need his help if my expedition are gonna have any chance of success.” Twilight thought out loud. ”Expedition?” Spike said ”You said it yourself Spike. Only in the johto region can we find this kind of information” ”Then i’m coming with you.” Spike said ”No Spike” Spike was confounded ”But you can’t go there yourself!” He exclaimed ”Im not.” Twilight answered the perceived question. ”Im taking Rainbow Dash with me. She is fast and can hear and see everything from the sky.” ”Why not take all of us?” Spike asked as he thought about himself and the rest of the mane 6. Which was the group nickname usually used to describe Twilight, Rarity, Apple Jack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash ”We can’t afford being discovered.” Twilight said consequently. ”You heard what Rarity said about her visit to the johto region after Discords failed experiment. All a pokemon trainer needs to do is to throw the ball at you and you will be captured. No, me and Rainbow Dash will make the perfect balance of discretion and safety in numbers.” There was a booming explosion echoing the sky as a rainbow colored blur came towards Spike and Twilight ”Did i hear somepony recognize my awesomeness?” Rainbow Dash said in her usual raspy voice ”Just the pony i wanted to meet.” Twilight said. ”I need your help. Come with me. You and I are going to johto!” ”Count me in!” Rainbow Dash didn’t need to ask any more questions. She had already heard the entire conversation from high up in the sky. Chapter 2. A Mind In Discord ”You need MY help?!” Discord exclaimed. It sounded more like a statement than a question. ”But you are the princess of friendship. Surely someone in your hooves doesn’t need the humble help from the Spirit Of Chaos himself?” Discord put on a smile as he indulged himself. Even though Discord knew by this point that his life didn’t have a real purpose without his equal friends by his side he never could resist having them crawl for him now and then. ”I am… I do need your help.” Twilight forced herself to answer with a smile as her left eye gave a twitch. ”But this is a top secret mission. You must promise me not to tell anyone that we are going to johto.” Twilight felt a small feeling of revenge as she gave Discord a command. Discord gave a deep sight ”I am discretion itself.” Discord answered sarcastically as he popped his fingers. In a flash Twilight and Rainbow Dash had gone from the familiar sight of Equestria to the foreign view of the dense curving trees of johto. Twilight and Rainbow Dash was in awe as their eyes studied the emerald colored leaves sparkling in the big tree crowns as the sun beams was going through them. There was the clinging sound of quills hitting each other as Discords big dragon like head suddenly appeared from inside Twilights bag. Twilight gasped. ”Oh, silly me forgot to ask. When do you want me to pop my fingers and send you back again? Three days sounded like a reasonable expedition length to Twilight ”Three days from now.” Twilight said ”Don’t have to much fun!” Discord chanted as his head vaporized into thin air. Rainbow Dash raised her wings and took flight. To late Twilight tried to stop her. ”No Rainbow Dash.” She shouted silently ”We cant risk being seen.” But rainbow dash was already airborne. Her big lightly red eyes sparkled in wonder as the vast johto landscape was revealing its small sun reflecting lakes, connecting tree patches and occasionally open meadows. With her sensitive wonderbolt trained ears she could hear the sounds of creatures that she never had heard before. To Rainbow Dash it felt like being reborn and discovering the world all over again. But Rainbow Dash wasn’t the only one catching a glimpse of something new. Not that much but still a bit further away there was a seasoned pokemon trainer named Karl. He was looking through his binoculars in wonder as he studied the winged, fireless ponyta with a rainbow colored mane and tail. He didn’t need his pokedeck to tell that this had to be an unknown breed of pokemon. At his side he had his fellow companion. Easily mistaken for a flower in the dense bushes, Bellsprout was peaking out her bell shaped head. ”Can you believe it Bell?” he said in his usual calm but still determined highly pitched voice. ”A unknown breed of pokemon within our reach. Can you imagine what powers it must have Bell?” Bell just looked up at her master and gave her approval by nodding her head. Karl lowered his binoculars. ”We must capture it!” Chapter 3. The First Battle The first hours of the expedition Twilight and Rainbow Dash spent memorizing landmarks. They where looking for locations previously used for pokemon battles. There Twilight hoped to find some clues, or better yet, a left over pokeball. Unbeknown to them Karl was tracking them, waiting for the right moment to strike. It wasn’t long before they heard a explosion and a cry in the distance. Somewhere ahead a battle was raging. ”Lets wait until they are done” Twilight said. ”Then we go there and look for clues.” ”No way!” Rainbow Dash said in wonder. ”Did you hear that explosion? I have no idea what in Celestia could make that but i bet it must be something awesome!” Twilight sighted ”Huh, okay. But we must be careful” The two pony friends tucked inside some bushes and caught a sight of a big moving rock cliff with eyes going head to head with a small alligator like creature with red spikes. It looked almost like Spike, except this Spike was breathing water instead of fire. ”Totodile, keep that water flowing!” The female trainer shouted ”Onix, stay away from the water!” The male trainer shouted. ”Onix, use your tail. Now!” The big rock creature spun its tail around toward the small reptile and sent it flying several feet away and landing in the middle of the plain grass. The male trainer continued. ”You have the momentum now! Finnish it with another tail!” Just as the tail was going to hit Totodile jumped up in the air and landed on the tail. As Onix lifted the tail Totodile surfed down the spine of it and jumped up to Onix face. ”Now Totodile!” The female shouted ”Totodile took a deep breath and sent out a large stream of water right in the face of Onix. Totodile jumped down and walked away in style as Onix collapsed behind it. ”Great job Totodile!” Twilight could feel Rainbow Dash shacking with excitement beside her. ”Oh! That was so AWESOME!” She almost screamed but somehow managed to keep it within whisper range ”Great match Onix.” The male trainer said as he opened his pokeball and onix disappeared in a bright beam of light inside it. ”Great job Misty. I see you haven’t lost your touch with water pokemons since the last time we met.” He said politely ”Thanks Brock. And beating you is just as satisfying now as before” Misty gave out a large smile and curved her body in womanly fashion. She then looked at Brock with big eyes ”I have really missed you and Ash”. Tears was forming in her eyes. Brock resisted laying a hand on her shoulder. He and Misty had always stayed within friends distance through all the years they traveled together. ”Where do you think he might be?” She continued. Brock sighted. ”There was a time i kept asking myself the same question.” Brock said as he looked out in the distance, as if he was trying to get a glimpse of the past. Then he continued ”He never did get the recognition as a pokemon master like he always wanted, at least not so far as i know. But one thing i have always been sure of.” He paused. ”Together, he and Pikachu… There is nothing that those two can’t handle.” ”I hope you’re right” Misty said relieved. She could always count on Brock for comfort. After Misty and Brock had left the scene of what Rainbow Dash could only describe as ”The most awesome thing ever!” Twilight scouted the area for pokeballs and other clues. ”Could you scour the area from sky view Rainbow Dash? Watch out for round red objects.” Twilight ordered ”Consider it done Twili” Rainbow Dash answered ”Twili?!” Twilight exclaimed and laughed as Rainbow Dash was flying away. Sometimes Twilight could almost swear that ’Dashie’ was having a crush on her. It wasn’t long until Rainbow Dash returned with a badge of some sort. ”What do you think it could be Twili?” Rainbow Dash asked ”I don’t know” Said Twilight. The badge had a six edged rectangular shape with a passage cut to the middle of the badge. The two separate corners had engraved lines going upwards, making the badge look almost like a headless bird with wings. Chapter 4. A Rainbow Away From You ”I have no idea where Twilight is?” Discord lied. ”Twilight knows me, she would never tell me if it was something that important.” Discord had always been a great liar. So far it was going well as the faces of the ponies in front of him didn’t seem to show any sign of suspicion. At least not Apple Jack, Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. What Discord didn’t count on though was the female intuition. And that happened to be Raritys home field, and she wasn’t familiar with the Discord that shredded praise over Twilight by insinuating that he would be to unimportant to be shared information with, at least not without sending double signals about it. ”So you have no idea where they went?” Rarity asked ”Not the slightest clue.” Discord answered without thinking about the question he just received ”So it wasn’t just Twilight?” Rarity said calmly ”No it wasn’t…” Discord hesitated. ”Wait, aren’t you aware that Rainbow Dash is gone to?” ”I haven’t though about it.” Rarity said. ”The question is though how you can be aware of it darling…to.” Rarity said as her eyes where looking more beautiful than ever. Discords face dropped like a rock from a cliff as the faces of the other ponies hardened. ”Oh. Alright! I helped Twilight Brakle and Rainbow Splash away for an expedition.” Discord wined. ”But i wont tell you where!” He then said like a small colt that had just hid away something from his parents. ”Oh. Theres no need for that.” Rarity laughed mildly. ”We already know they went to the Johto region.” Discord grumped and let his head collapse on his shoulders, foolishly believing that Rarity actually knew and again without thinking which signals he was sending. ”Oh. So they DID go there.” Rarity continued enthusiastically, still like she was talking to a lover. Discords eyelids twitched, confirming Raritys suspicions he had thought she had him figured out. Discord had lost his words completely at this point. The mighty spirit of chaos had within a minute been turned into the spirit of grumpy old grandad. But Rarity, being the element of generosity, didn’t leave him at this state. ”Oh. But thats why we thought to come here actually. Everybody here knows about your powers, the same powers that sent me to Johto. We figured that if somepony, or in this case, some-draconequus, would have a plan on how to solve this it would be you, Discord.” Discord almost fell into Raritys charming attempt. But since he was the king of that technique already he could see it coming from a mile away. ”Oh please. Even i don’t know the extent of my powers. But i’m sure even they have limits” He said as he was brushing it of. Rarity was about to try another approach when Fluttershy, the long time best friend of Discord, cut in. ”Discord.” She said nicely but with a small edge in her voice. ”i know that their mission must be secret for a reason. I also know that you would never reveal something that isn’t supposed to be revealed. But can you at least tell us when we can reunite with the rest of our friends? You wouldn’t want me to disappear not knowing where i am or when i might return, would you?” Fluttershy said this as she was hovering face level of the usually towering draconequus. Discord sighted deeply. He would never lie directly to Fluttershy ”Alright. 2 days from now they will be here with me.” Discord answered. Slightly less humiliated. Still he thought to himself that Rarity would have to watch out for rabies dresses running amok in her boutique the following days. 2 days later Rainbow Dash and Twilight where getting ready to be sent back to Equestria. Their expedition had turned out to be rewarding. Not so rewarding that they where in a possession of a pokeball no, but they had the badge. The information they received by watching that battle had included that creatures inside can be called back just by opening the pokeballs. The had also seen a lot of strange creatures they had assumed to be pokemons. Twilight thought she might also have a spell to counter the pokeball magic in case it was to be used against equestria citizens. Behind some bushes Karl and Bell was watching. They where getting ready to strike. All they needed to do was to wait until the rainbow ponyta returned. They where watching her purple friend now. Karl was readying a pokeball containing his Blastoise when there was a voice behind him. ”Bu!” Karl turned around and gasped as Rainbow Dashes frowning face where just a couple of inches from his. He fell backwards on top of his Bellsprout. ”Worst sneak attack ever.” Rainbow Dash teased. ”Twilight. We have company!” Karl. Realizing that his chances of capturing this rainbow pony was about to be vaporized, lifted his hand and threw the pokeball onto the grass ahead. In a flash Blastoise, a big turtle like creature on two legs with water cannons on the sides where towering over Rainbow Dash. ”Blastoise. Use your water cannon. Now!” Blastoise slided slightly backwards as the two cannons fired. Just seconds before they hit Rainbow Dash she was already airborne far away from harms way. Instead Karl gasped as the force of the water hit him in the chest and sent him flying backwards into a tree. Rainbow Dash flew toward Twilight. ”Lets get out of here!” Rainbow Dash urged her friend. Twilight was just about to reach above the tree level when she felt a hard force hit her from behind. Twilight screamed in pain as the force of the water sent her into a tree crown. Rainbow Dash realized that they would not get out of there both of them with that creature still standing. She flew down and planted her hooves in the grass, ready to faced the way larger reptile. Chapter 5. A Blasting Encounter Karl was back on his feet, ready to catch what had to be the most unique pokemon he has seen throughout his entire time as a pokemon trainer. He wasn’t sure what to expect from this blue winged pony pokemon with rainbow colored mane and tail. But he figured it expected the water cannon blast from his Blastoise by now. He patiently waited for the pony to make a move. Rainbow Dash wasn’t sure how long she could afford to drag out the standoff. But she hoped that Twilight had made her way out of there. Suddenly Karl realized that he had to make a move or it would allow the winged pony to get to much rest. ”Water cannons. Now!” Karl screamed. In a flash rainbow dash took off in the most spectacular way Karl had ever witnessed. The water cannon seemed to fire into thin air as Rainbow Dash circled around it’s stream. There was a large clinging sound as Rainbow Dashes hooves hit Blastoise in the head, making him stagger a bit. But Blastoise had been pokemon master Karl’s first pokemon, and he just shrugged it of and continued to fire toward the end of the rainbow. Rainbow Dash must have been about a kilometer up in the sky. She was to caught in the heat of the fight to think about flying away. She wailed around and flew even faster toward Blastoise. Blastoise was now firing burst fire, sending big balls of water up into the air. But Rainbow Dash was flying so fast that she just speared right through them. There was another bang as she landed another hit on Blastoise, who where starting to feel like he actually had a real challenger. Rainbow Dash turned around and went for another hit. Now, dear reader. If Rainbow Dash have had an experienced trainer at her side he or she would probably have changed tactics by now. Because as Rainbow Dash where getting closer to Karl’s Blastoise he knew what was coming. ”Blastoise. Hard shell. Now!” The experienced Blastoise even waited a little longer after Karl gave his command before he disappeared into his shell and hurled himself up into the air. Rainbow Dash gave a loud gasp as she slammed into Blastoise hard shell. She flied up again toward the sky but now she was staggering. She felt pain in her right wing. Karl sensed that she would try to get away. ”Blastoise. Water cannon again, burst fire! Aim hard!” Blastoise concentrated his water inside and loaded up one big ball of water. There was a large bang as it launched into the air. Rainbow Dash turned around but this time she had no chance. The hard ball of water hit her bullseye and she plummeted into the ground. Blastoise didn’t move a muscle on his face. He could have made that shot in his sleep Rainbow Dash was trying to get up but her sight, blurry from the concussion, made her dissy. She was to much in pain to be scared. She just collapsed again to the ground and looked at the creature she didn’t know yet was a human named Karl. She tried to keep up her usual confident look up but it looked more like desperation at this point. Karl knew from experience that there was no more need for battle. From his pocket he grabbed a empty pokeball and threw it toward Rainbow Dash. There was a loud explosion as a purple beam rocketed from the forrest border. It hit the pokeball and made it wear of to the side. Twilight Sparkle was flying almost as fast as Rainbow Dash as she fired another shot toward Blastoise. This sent him tumbling backwards to the ground. Twilight landed beside Rainbow Dash and tried to help her get up. ”Water cannon Blastoise. Don’t let them get away!” Karl screamed The water blast parted in every direction as it hit the magic protection bubble Twilight had put around herself and Rainbow Dash. Her angry face frowned as the light from her horn intensified. Karl looked in horror as Blastoise rose into the air and was tossed away into nearby bushes. ’That is one powerful pokemon!’ he thought to himself. Rainbow Dash, realizing that both their lives might be at stake, gained her bearings and took of with Twilight. Twilight was trying to wind boost Rainbow Dash from underneath. But Rainbow dash frowned as her damaged wing made her tumble down and slightly bump Twilight on the way down. She then gained air again. Twilight was just hovering with Rainbow Dash coming toward her from underneath. Dash was reaching her hooves forward as if to hug Twilight when something hard hit her in the back. Rainbow Dash face was formed as if saying ”farewell” as she vaporized into a bright red light. The light then disappeared into the pokeball. Twilight looked on in disbelief as the ball then fell into the grass. The pokeball was shaking as a red light was blinking in the middle of it’s button. Rainbow Dash found herself in a red and white void. She couldn’t feel the pain of her wing anymore as she was hovering in the seemingly infinite empty space. She was about to feel calm when she suddenly remembered Twilight. ’My friends! They need me!’ The thought roared inside her brain. But as her thoughts was moving closer to Twilight, the more the pain from the wing where starting to come back. She started feeling dissy again. ’Twilight. No! Twili!’. The pain from the wing was almost unbearable now. She felt the sadness take hold over her as she rid her minds of Twilight. The pain started to fade, the sadness followed. Rainbow Dash felt the calming pease wrap around her like a blanket as she lost consciousness. The pokeball had stopped shacking. The light in the middle gave a last long blink as it to stopped. ”Yes! She is mine!” Karl shouted, completely forgetting in his joy that Twilight might still be a threat. As Twilight heard the phrase ’She’s mine’ echo through the air Twilight felt her heart drop down to her hooves. Emptiness filled every inch of her mind usually boasting with theories and ideas. The sky suddenly turned purple as Discord was beginning his scheduled relocation of Twilight and Rainbow Dash to Equestria. In a flash she was back again. ”Twilight!” She thought she heard Apple Jack shout. She almost felt like somepony was wrapping herself around her, as if things where happy and alright. Twilight could not imagine. Rarity felt a large boost of relief as she saw Twilight appear. But as Fluttershy was wrapping herself around Twilight she caught sight of Twilights blank emotionless face. She then realized that Rainbow Dash was not in the room. She felt that joy tumble down to her stomach. In that moment Rarity knew what has happened. Twilight looked at Rarity. Twilight now realized that Rarity knew the horrible truth. Twilights hard face cracked into a inferno of tears and sobbing Chapter 6. Rarity Steps Up ”Whats the matter Sugarcube?” Applejack asked in her usual country dialect as Twilight had diminished into nothing but a hump of mane and hair skin on the floor. She was trying to hide her face beneath her hoofs. ”Twilight. Why are you crying?” Asked Fluttershy as she also started shedding tears. Even though she didn’t know yet why Twilight was crying Fluttershy couldn’t stand someone else go into a heartbroken state without her finding a way to sympathize. ”Sheh.h.h… Shehs…” Twilight was sobbing so loud she couldn’t get her words out. Pinkie Pie, the pink pony known to throw parties for the ponies in ponyville, felt her passion being horribly out of place. She lowered her pink head to join Twilight on the ground. ”Twilight. Whats the matter? Has something Happened?” Pinkie pie was clearly worried, despite this she still had her usual high, almost ear piercing voice. Twilight took a deep breath. She tried to clear her head. ’No one, not even my friends, should be submitted to watching a princess cry’ she lectured herself. She had to be genuine and resolute, not genuine and completely out of her ways. ”Raih.h.h. Rainbow Dash…” She sobbed softly. In that moment the pony’s in the room realized that Rainbow Dash was not with them. Minus Rarity, who already knew but felt like Twilight needed to talk out with the ponies that did not know already. ”Where is Rainbow Sugarcube? Did something happen to her?” Apple Jack asked straight into Twilights face. Apple Jack was the most honest and straightforward pony in the room. Twilight then said it for the first time since she returned almost like a leader again. She was still on the ground though ”She has been captured by a pokemon trainer.” There was a moment of silence in the room. Discord had been silent the whole time. He wasn’t very good in emotional crises situations he told himself. ”Tell us what happened.” Applejack said Twilight was about to start from the beginning when she suddenly felt herself being stuck in that tree crown again. From there she was forced to watch Rainbow Dash plummet to the ground. She remembered Rainbow Dashes face before she disappeared into the pokeball. The face said to Twilight in her head: ”Why did you have to bring me here? Twili? Why would you let your friends in harms way just to gather information?”. Twilight felt her eye brows shrink again. Tears started to pour out. She hid her face behind her hooves and continued sobbing out her guilt. For so long Twilight had always been the uplifting voice in trying times. Now the confidence of the entire mane 6 where dropping to the floor and was withering away fast, like porridge accidentally left boiling on a stove for a whole day. At least thats the reference that Pinkie Pie went for. ”Well then. What are we waiting for? Lets go and rescue her!” The ponies in the room veered their heads around in surprise as Rarity spoke up. The socially intellectual white pony felt that Twilight wanted to lead but couldn’t shake the guilt for what happened, she would then feel guilty for not being able to lead thus created a dark spiral. Rarity had to take charge now. Both for Twilight and Rainbow Dash. ”Twilight?” Rarity lowered her head next to the alicorn princesses. She spoke softly. She knew by now that she should avoid drawing references to the events in general. She decided to focus on details. ”Did you remember what hat the trainer whore?” Twilight calmed down as her head was focusing on singled out facts again. ”It was brown, i think” ”What color was the vest?” ”Dark blue.” ”Was the trainer alone, beside his chosen pokemon?” ”Yes… No. He had a plant thing walking behind him” Twilight where now speaking without sobbing ”You don’t say?” Rarity exclaimed with interest. ”You don’t happen to have something of interest gathered from your journey?” Rarity cleverly avoided using the word ’Expedition’, as this would remind Twilight that it had been her idea. ”I don’t think so… Wait? The badge. Yes! here.” Twilight opened her bag and showed the badge that she and Rainbow Dash had found in Johto. The blue colored wing shapes on the badge had the guilt feelings come back to twilight. She was just about to hide her head again when Rarity put her hoof under her chin and looked friendly into her eyes. ”You know Twilight…” Rarity made a short pause ”…That Rainbow Dash would want you to focus on gathering as much information as possible, do you? Call it an expedition or a journey. A journey sounds good right? Thats just what she would like wouldn’t you say? A journey to the unknown with new adventures waiting around every corner!” Rarity said the last part with passion. The notion that Rainbow Dash was heading for something she would like calmed Twilight down. ”But Rarity, this could all have been avoided, its my fault…” Rarity put her hoof on twilights mouth. ”Ideas are not reason for being at fault Twilight, actions are. And by Celestia, you and i are going to find that trainer and speak our minds about his actions. Of that you can be sure! In fact, thats exactly what we all are going to do.” Rarity rose and spoke to the entire room now. ”Yes. An adventure. Thats what we all are going for today! An adventure to save our friend. Why? Why, so she can be a part of it to! Thats why. May the dangers find us if it wants us, for we are not going to waste any time waiting for it.” The entire mane 6, including Twilight, felt their hearts beat boldly again. There was a mumble of approval in the group. Everyone except Apple Jack, who instead gave out a large shout. ”Huiiiiijiie! Thats exactly what i wanted to hear!” Apple Jacks face then turned and looked confounding. ”Wait a minute? How come Discord weren’t able to bring Rainbow Dash back here like Twilight?” Apple Jack looked curiously at Discord ”I don’t know?” Discord said. ”I tried again as you all where talking but it seems like my powers aren’t reaching her somehow.” Discord spoke in a genuinely innocent voice. He then tried several times while the others where watching. ”Do you think it could be because she is in a pokeball?” Fluttershy spoke up Rarity looked at Twilight. She was testing her now. Twilight then said. ”I don’t know. But while we are there we might as well try and find out.” And with this it was decided. The mane 6 where all going to Johto, to adventure, to friendship and to rescue Rainbow Dash. The Mane Pokemons Part 2 Chapter 7. The Adventure Begins ”Can i come with you?” Spike asked with a tinge of desperation in his voice ”No Spike.” Twilight answered. The small dragon was putting his tiny claws together as if he was begging. Twilight continued. ”It’s to dangerous.” Spike looked sad. ”But I’m Rainbow Dashes friend too. I want to help you…eh…her.” Spike had always prided himself in serving others. It was part of his dragon code. And Spike had always been proud of serving Twilight Sparkle, ever since she had first hatched him from his egg during her evaluation test to become a student in Celestia’s school for gifted fillies and colts. Rarity now looked at Spike. Spike felt his heart give a tinge. He had always been in love with Rarity, even though he was a dragon and she was a pony. ”Im afraid Twilight is right Spiky. Iv’e been to Johto myself and it’s a brutal place, believe me. You simply must stay here Spiky. You must!” Rarity said the last part dramatically, like a climax in a opera play. ”She even looks pretty when she turns me down.” Spike said dreamily out loud as his tail gave a spin and ended in a stretched out position shaking like an antenna that just had somepony snap at it. ”Is everypony ready?” Twilight asked. There was a moment of hesitation in the room. The stories Rarity had told about Johto, about its aggressive trainers, about its various monsters called pokemons still resonated in the minds of the ponies. But it was like their mind where all as one when all their thoughts went to Rainbow Dash at the same time. There was a unison answer. ”Yes!” ”Then lets go!” ”Wait a minute?” Apple Jack said as she realized that Discord hadn’t packed anything. ”Aren’t Discord coming with us? All we need really is his magic and nothing will be able to stand in our way!” Applejack said resolute. ”No. He can’t come with us.” Twilight faced the straightforward pony. She was about to tell Apple Jack why Discord had to stay behind when her mind suddenly painted Rainbow Dashes desperate face again. Twilight felt the sadness and the guilt boil up inside her. It was the worst time possible for this as her brief hesitation allowed the brutish Apple Jack continue hers first. ”Discord can turn the entire Johto world upside down if he wanted to. For petes sake, he could even give us a pokemon army to tarmac the entire dimension for us to find Rainbow Dash.” Discord was about to tell Apple Jack that he first of all wasn’t a servant and second of all his fears regarding the circumstances of the recent events when Rarity suddenly did it for him. ”Discord must stay behind because of the facts Apple Jack. Something in Johto is blocking his powers, probably the pokeballs. But it could be something else to, something that we don’t know about. If we take Discord with us we risk having him captured. And with his powers at a pokemon trainers disposal…” A horrified Fluttershy then continued. ”He could rule the world and all of the dimensions!” Fluttershy sunk to the ground as she said this. It was unlike Apple Jack to have things to say but choose not to say it. But whatever more she had to say now was jamming in her throat. After that was settled Discord kicked of the first part of their journey. Or in this case, snapped his fingers. There was a wave of excitement as the world turned purple and the shapes of another completely different world was forming in front of their eyes. Much like when only Twilight and Rainbow Dash had seen it for the first time the awe of the entire group stood crowd to the scene of countless unknown monsters. This included what the mane 6 didn’t know yet was flying Pidgey’s, Caterpie’s crawling up the trees, Diglett’s digging holes in the ground and the occasional Butterfree. ”Oh. They are soooooo cute!” Fluttershy’s eyes lit up like a filly getting candy from her parents. ”Are those pokemons?” She asked. She didn’t get an answer. Everyone was busy gasping and taking in the amazing world. Everyone except for Twilight. For her it was just another reminder what a fool she had been. Rarity walked up to her. ”You know it will get easier?” Twilight turned to Rarity and put on a large smile. ”Whatever do you mean?” She said looking like she had just told a failed one liner. Rarity was about to give Twilight a withering look but instead went immediately to her point. ”We are all bound to make choices that we regret later darling.” Twilight sighted and looked at the ground. ”I know Rarity.” She then said silently. ”I just wished that Rainbow Dash hadn’t been a part of mine.” A tear fell from Twilights left eye, but Twilight felt much better knowing that Rarity knew about her feelings. She felt a stronger bound to the white pony than ever before. ”You know Rarity?” ”Yes Twilight?” You know i wouldn’t have made it back there if it weren’t for you.” ”Oh hohoho, no mention of it Darling.” Rarity waved her left hoof about as she said it. ”But i mean it.” Twilight said stronger now. ”Without you lifting the group back there we might have never been able to get this expedition on the road. We might have just continued to live our lives in ponyville without Rainbow Dash. All because of me not being able to hold it together” Rarity felt that there was a point at the end of Twilights remark ”You words means a lot to me darling, i really do appreciate it. But where are we going with this pardon me for asking?” Twilight looked at Rarity in the most decisive way she could. Twilight had made her decision. ”I may be the princess of friendship.” Twilight paused. ”But there is only one leader of this expedition. And that leader is YOU Rarity.” Rarity felt overwhelmed. As a clothing designer she was an artist. She wasn’t a leader, that was somebody else’s job so she could focus in the decor. ”Pardon me for doubting myself and hence also your judgement. But i’m not so sure i’m leader material.” Twilights answer didn’t hesitate ”But you ARE! Rarity. I heard you back there. You spoke up when nobody else dared. You made ponies believe in something when they couldn’t believe in themselves.” Twilight spoke with passion. It felt good for her to give something to somepony else after her failure. Rarity looked at Twilight and smiled. Only a true friend can trust this kind of responsibility to somepony else. And even though she owned a few of her own shops back in Equestria with contacts in the highest parts of the society she had never felt this privileged in her entire life. ”Thank you Twilight. You are a true friend. And the answer is yes, i Accept! I promise i wont let you down.” Twilight then continued. ”I know there is a lot of responsibility to take in. I was put in the same position when i was made a princess alicorn by Celestia. But i won’t leave you alone. I will help you whenever you need it. Rarity was about to remark that leading a kingdom was a completely different story than leading a small expedition containing only ponies that knows you. But then Rarity thought that it might not be that different giving that Twilight wasn’t hesitating to put it that way. Rarity felt a acidic nervosity boil up inside her. ’What have i gotten myself into?’ She thought to herself Chapter 8. A Dash To The Face Rainbow Dash suddenly felt a strange tinge inside her body. It was like someone was shacking a platform if she had been standing on it. Shacking it fast but not violently. A tickling feeling inside her belly. She still found herself inside the infinite red and white void. By now she have guessed that she must be inside a pokeball. She was about to go back to sleep when she suddenly felt the big infinite space shrink rapidly. There was a big flash of red. She felt the gravity come back. Suddenly she found herself standing in the woods. She knew immediately that this was now the real world. She knew it the same way she knew it when she waked up from a dream. This was also when she realized that that tickling feeling she had felt inside that pokeball had been because she was hungry. But it hadn’t felt like hunger when she was in the pokeball, but now she felt her empty stomach give a large growl as she by instinct started to look around for food, or at least a pile of dried hay would be nice. ’Hayburgers!’ She thought to herself as the image of eating hayburgers with Twilight popped up in her mind. ’Wait a minute?’ She thought before suddenly saying out loud. ”Twilight!” (2 minutes earlier) Karl wasn’t sure what would happen once he had released that winged, rainbow colored pony. He was thinking about this as he was picking up her pokeball from his backpack. Bell, which was what Karl called his bellsprout, was looking up at her master. She was worried. The image of that rainbow pony almost knocking Karl’s Blastoise on his back a while back had her imagine the same happening to her master. But Karl knew it had to be done. A Pokeball might have the effect of calming a pokemons senses but it didn’t override the basic needs of the creature. It still needed water, food, entertainment, a sense of self preservation and probably most important of all, love and friendship. Of course Karl didn’t memorize these facts in his head like a book. But Karl was a pokemon master and thus he knew this by instinct. After Karl had opened the pokeball and released the Rainbow Pony the creature she first didn’t seem to know that he was standing right behind her. She seemed to be looking around for something. Karl thought that this was going to be easy as she didn’t immediately run away like many pokemons do. It was then that Karl heard her speak. ”Twilight!” This came as a great shock to Karl. It was then he remembered that he had already heard her speak to her friend earlier. That purple friend of hers had really given him a hard time back there. As he thought about this the Rainbow Pony suddenly turned around and looked at Karl. Karl was about to say hi to the creature when the pony suddenly took flight toward him. He felt her hoof violently slam against his face. He fell backwards and felt his Bellsprout smear out like sandwich butter underneath his back. Karl reached for his Pidgeot pokeball as he knew that this blue rainbow pony could fly like nothing he had ever seen. He only hoped that pidgeot would be able to keep up. Rainbow Dash looked behind her when she took of to the sky. She couldn’t see how the trainer would be able to reach her. As she slowed down and soared just above the clouds she felt a change in the wind turbulence. She heard wingbeats behind her. Rainbow Dash took of in a flash. She heard the wingbeats grow stronger. She heard a voice. ”Slow down!” Rainbow Dash looked to the side and saw the trainer ride a big bird creature. ”I don’t want to hurt you! Please! Be careful with…” It was then that Rainbow Dash suddenly felt a excruciating pain cut inside her from her right wing root to her brain. As her right wing folded she started plummeting toward the ground spinning in circles. Rainbow Dash was just about to consider herself a dead pony when she felt talons grab her hooves. As Pidgeot put the rainbow pony back on the ground Karl had the pony’s pokeball ready for immediate callback if she tried to run again. The pony veered her head around and looked angrily at Karl. ’What a stubborn pokemon this is. Even as her wing makes her unable to fly she keeps…” It was in the middle of that thought that the pony suddenly stood up and started running toward the forrest. Her hooves teared up large grass chumps on the way. Karl pointed the pokeball at her and opened it but the red light beam just missed her as the pony jumped in among the dense trees right in between two terrified caterpies. ’Man she can both run and fly this pokemon!’ Karl only became more happy with his catch. After Karl had his pidgeot bring back the rainbow pony again to him he started talking slowly to the creature. The pony looked at Karl with her white teeth growling at him. ”Listen. I know you are scared and don’t know who i am or where you are. But i am your friend. That wing of yours need to be taken care of or it may never heal. And i got food for you. Look.” Karl picked up the pokesnacks he kept in his backpack and threw it between him and the pony. Rainbow Dash looked down at the pathetic excuses for rock candy the pine legged creature had thrown on the ground. She was hungry though. But her pride was hungrier. In one move of her hoof she kicked up a rock that had been halfway imbedded in the muddy ground and chewed it up and swallowed it as she kept her stubborn mask worn when facing the trainer. She felt her stomach try to push up the odd content that it had just received. It was then like her mask had melted on the sides for a brief moment as she subdued her instincts to throw up before immediately going back to stone face angry. She saw the pine legged creature laugh for a brief moment. This only made her more angry. She didn’t realize that the mud on her face from the rock combined with her over the top expression made her look almost like a totem pole. The creature then laughed even harder. Karl decided to keep the pony outside her pokeball for the night. He needed it to get used to his presence if he ever wanted it to trust him. Rainbow Dash was laying nearby where the trainer had made his fire. She would patiently wait for the trainer to fall asleep before making her escape. Rainbow Dash waked up in the middle of the night. Her body was shaking. The cold wind made the trees sway against the starry night sky. Rainbow Dash thought it must have been close to 0 degrees. Her right wing laid limply on the side. If she walked away from here now she would be all alone in the cold forrest without knowing where Twilight is and without being able to fly. She looked toward the burning warm fireplace with sleeping bags laid out on the ground Karl was just about to fall asleep when he heard hooves on the ground. He knew to keep his reactions cool as the rainbow pokemon sat down on the other side of the fireplace. After what must have been a half hour of silently giving each other subtle looks Karl asked. ”Do you want a sleeping bag?” Rainbow Dash didn’t move an inch of her face. But her eyes wailed around toward the trainer. At least he wasn’t making her slam into a hard shell she thought to herself. ”Sure”. She said barely hearable ”What you say?” Karl didn’t quite hear ”Sure!” Rainbow Dash answered grumpily. With a short swop of his arm Karl hurled a bag over to the rainbow pony. With her hooves she swooped the bag over her blue body and wings. It was another 15 minutes before Karl asked. ”What kind of pokemon are you?” Rainbow Dash was about to scream to the mumbling fool that she wasn’t a pokemon. But then she realized that that would mean having long philosophical discussion of what a pokemon really is, and that felt like a boring Twilight lesson to Rainbow Dash. Instead she just answered. ”I’m Rainbow Dash” Karl lowered his head into his bag. ”And i’m a human. And my name is Karl. Nice to meet you Rainbow Dash.” Rainbow Dash was about to try and connect in her brain the reality of having your Blastoise tortoise monster fire water balls in your face and the phrase ’Nice to meet you’. But instead she just fell asleep. Chapter 9. Dash To Basics It was still cold outside when Rainbow Dash woke up. The fireplace was still warming. She guessed that her human captor named Karl had kept it alive for a while after she had fallen asleep. She threw her head around and saw Karl sleeping like a little filly, his Bellsprout was lying beside him. She looked on her right at her bad wing. It looked alright but it still felt numb. She didn’t dare to try and use it. ’Well? I guess its time to get out of here.’ She thought. Silently she got up on her hoofs, careful not to step on any twigs. After she had made her way into the forrest Rainbow Dash suddenly realized how tall the trees where. It felt like they where shutting themselves on top of her as their big crowns where almost to big and heavy for their own good. The forrest looked like it would stretch for miles and the sounds from rodents in the bushes and singing bird monsters resonated within its space. Rainbow Dash told herself that this would be her great test in Johto. She would cross this forrest from this point until it’s end. She told herself that she would do it for Twilight and the rest of her friends, the same way she had once told herself that she would fly till the end of the sky for her tortoise pet at home in Equestria. But as Rainbow Dash was getting ready to take her first step something in her stirred. She first could’t get a grasp on what it was. She told herself that it was nothing, but then she realized that the reason for this was because she was ashamed of what it was. She felt bad for him. She felt bad for Karl. ’He’s been so nice to me and i just rise up and go…’ Rainbow Dash cut the thought. She cursed herself and continued trotting. The mirroring tree rows seemed like they would go on forever. She stopped again. ’He didn’t seem all that bad’. She thought to herself. She looked back. The smoke from the fireplace was rising for the sky but she was still tethered to the ground. ’And on top of that…’ She thought. ’I may need his help to know where i must go’. The long empty forrest crossing all alone didn’t seem all that inviting anymore. She trotted back to the camp After she had gotten some more sleep she opened her eyes and found herself laying on her belly. It was then she realized that something was moving on her bad wing. She looked to the right. It was Karl. He had cut away some of the blue feathers and was tending for a big wound that had been hiding underneath. Rainbow Dash gave a long tired sigh and curled herself. ”No. Lay still.” Karl urged Rainbow Dash did as he said. She was to morning tired to be stubborn. ”You really know how to fly with these. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone fly as you do.” Karl remarked. Rainbow Dash was still hesitant to give in to flattery by somepony, or ”someone” as he put it, who had just taken her by force. On the other hoof, to be perfectly fair, she wasn’t all that to hesitant to use force herself to get what she wanted. ”Yea, I am pretty awesome.” She muttered after giving a small laugh. Karl was taken a back by Rainbow Dash’s unsubdued self praise. She had seemed to be so shy until now. Karl had once been a kindergarten employee and knew from experience that bragging is not to be subdued, but taken care of for good use to boost confidence. ”Hehe. Yea. You really gave my Blastoise a fight to remember. In fact, i believe that with some training you could become almost unstoppable. Maybe even give MewTwo a run for his money.” ”MewTwo?” Rainbow Dash asked ”MewTwo is a psychic pokemon. He is said to be the most powerful pokemon in the world. But right now he is a pacifist, as far as i know.” ”Pacifist?” Rainbow Dash asked. ”He doesn’t fight anymore” Karl answered. ”Thats so lame” Rainbow Dash boomed in her tired whisper range. Karl laughed. ”Well. Some prefer it that way. Now. Try and raise your wing Rainbow Dash.” Rainbow Dash tried to raise her wing. It felt much better after Karl had banded it. ”Thats it. Try not to use it for heavy things for a while. A couple of days from now you will be ready for the training.” ”Training?” Rainbow Dash asked ”Training for the Johto league. It’s a pokemon tournament. All the best trainer with their pokemons will be competing there in front of big crowds of people.” ”People?” Karl laughed. ”Humans.” He then answered. ”It’s a big event. Came all the way to semi final a couple of years ago. This year i’m aiming for victory.” Karl stared dreamily into nothing as he said this. ”I have always dreamt of winning a big tournament. And after this year everyone is going to know my name. And your name. Rainbow Dash. If you are ready and willing to be my pokemon champion that is” Rainbow Dash didn’t know what to feel. She really wanted to get back to Twilight more than anything right now. But she couldn’t lie to herself. The thought of slamming a big bully monster to the dust and get rounds of cheers for it sounded totally awesome. She decided that at least she could do is se what this ’training’ talk was all about. What could she be needing training for? She already knew that she was the most awesome pony ever. Three days had passed and Rainbow Dash had grown all her feathers back and didn’t need her bandage anymore. She where now standing in front of Karl faced against a plain field of grass. ”Alright. Hitmonchan, come on out!” Karl shouted as he threw a pokeball. There was a flash of red. A skinny two legged creature with boxing gloves on its arms came out. It hit the thin air a couple of times as it looked ready for whatever. Rainbow Dash felt her stomach turn inside out. She burst out in a raspy laughter. ”OaHahahahahah… Hit…monchan! You’re kidding me right? What kind of a name is that?!” Rainbow Dash boxed the air as she said ’Hit’ in the sentence. Hitmonchan didn’t show any sign of emotion. Instead he just boomed. ”Hitmonchan!” There was a sudden blur in the air. He was moving so fast that he seemed to almost materialize in front of Rainbow Dash. Her laughter face was reconstructed into a boat like shape as Hitmonchan’s glove slammed into it. She fell backwards onto the grass. ”Hitmonchan!” The creature repeated. Karl then said calmly. ”Well. I guess we could go over the bad and the good sides of taunting tactics later. Till then, lets call this a warmup lesson, shall we?” ”Hitmonchan.” The creature said again ”Bellsprout!” Bell said. ”aaah…” Rainbow Dash mumbled ”Alright. Lets do some flying. Show me what you can do Rainbow Dash!” Rainbow Dash rocketed into the air. Karl was already thinking about what phrases he would use for this completely unknown pokemon. ”Alright! Rainbow Dash. When i say hoof punch you go for a hoof punch. Hitmonchan. Use block when she comes” ”Hitmonchan!” Hitmonchan answered. Rainbow Dash was high above tree level when Karl gave the command. ”Alright. Rainbow Dash! hoof punch!” Rainbow Dash came down like a meteor. There was a loud bang as Hitmonchan blocked Rainbow Dash’s hoof punch. She circled around. ”Alright. Lets try again! Rainbow Dash. Another hoof punch!” They did the same thing about six times ”Alright. Lets try something else. Rainbow Dash, i’m going to say hoof punch again, but then when you are about to throw the punch i am going to say ’Evade’ meaning that you cancel it and change flight course to the side. Understood?!” Rainbow Dash didn’t quite understand. Couldn’t she herself decide wether a move was good or bad? She was the one doing it after all. But she liked the confidence and authority of Karl. ”Yes sir” She said. ”Good.” They did that 4 times. Rainbow Dash going for a punch but evading in the last minute after Karl had given the command. They where about to do it for the fifth time when Rainbow Dash had a struck of genius. She waited for the word. ”Alright. Rainbow Dash. Hoof punch!” Rainbow Dash was almost down on Hitmonchan when Karl said. ”Rainbow Dash. Evade!” But Rainbow Dash kept on going. Hitmonchan was about to block her punch when she changed position and went for a leg kick at the last second. Hitmonchan was still able to block but was 2caught unaware. He fell down to his knees after the eco of the bang had faded. ’Hah. Sweet revenge’ Rainbow Dash thought. She now looked at Karl as she was waiting for him to tell her how awesome she was. Karl really admired this pokemon. She was fast and had fighting spirit. He sensed that she had the potential to go far. But this also meant that he had to be firm with her when she didn’t listen. ”Rainbow Dash. Why didn’t you do what i told you to do?” There was a slight edge in his voice. ”But did you see that? Wasn’t that kick awesome?!” Rainbow Dash was in ecstasy. Karl lowered his vocal tone and made it stronger now. ”Rainbow Dash. I am now going to tell you whats going to happen now.” Rainbow Dash seemed to listen. Karl continued. ”When you and i have our first battle together, may it be next month, may it be next week, may it be tomorrow, it may even be today, the other challenging trainer is going to throw out a pokeball containing 1 of 802 pokemons. Now. Neither you or i will have any idea what that pokemon will be. That pokemon can be an electric pokemon that can run hundreds of amps through your body, it can be a fire pokemon capable of setting your wings on fire, it can be and ice pokemon that can freeze you into a solid ice block. It can even be a psychic pokemon like MewTwo capable of making you forget who you are.” Rainbow Dash felt smaller and smaller the further he talked. Karl continued. ”Now i like your spirit Rainbow Dash. And i want you to do you, thats the way we are going to win our battles. But we have to be unison on what that is Rainbow Dash. As a pokemon trainer its my responsibility to make sure that you don’t spend a year in the pokemon infirmary.” Rainbow Dash felt like Rainbow Crash. She was at a total loss for words. Karl continued. ”Now of course there will be time for experimentation later. But until then, when i say ’Evade’. you ’EVADE’. Understood?!” Rainbow Dash imagined hundreds amps of electricity running through her body. She understood. ”Yes. I understand. Sorry Karl.” Rainbow Dash’s ears hanged at her sides. She lowered her head. ”No need for apologize Rainbow Dash. I am your trainer and you are my pokemon. Its our jobs to communicate these things. I do like your spirit though. You will become a powerful pokemon.” In this moment Rainbow Dash was thinking about Twilight and her other pony friends. She still wanted to get back to them. But why did she hesitate to tell Karl how she felt? Why didn’t she tell him that she wasn’t a pokemon realy? Nothing he had said and done so far, except maybe that Blastoise fight, suggested that he would be against it if she did. Rainbow Dash felt her brain go numb as she thought about this. The only thing that cleared her brain now was when she imagined the booming arena sound of cheering people after she had just slammed a monster to the ground. Rumble At The Meadow It had been a wonder for Fluttershy to walk around in the lightly tree filled meadow within the Johto forrest. The bright yellow pegasus pony had been hearing all sorts of discussions going on between pigeots that have just meet and become friends, caterpies charing the latest gossip, digletts having discussions about what their trainer will be like if they ever get captured. It was apparent to Fluttershy that the pokemons living in this world had been accustomed to getting caught. It was a strange thing to imagine that getting caught was somehow part of the way of life for any creature. But Fluttershy didn’t judge. She had been hearing what animals say since she was a little filly. She was now having a conversation with two butterfrees. “So you see. Thats how you always do when you don’t know if the other is listening to you. Just tell the other how you feel and he will surely do the same to you. Before you know it you will be solving your problems together.” Fluttershy was speaking with a kind and soft voice. The butterfrees couldn't believe that they actually once had considered using their sleeping dust on this flying pony when she had first arrived. Fluttershy was on her own little safari away from the others. She figured that since the group hadn’t had much luck tracking down the trainer that took Rainbow Dash she might as well try her own approach. “Now. I just have a innsy winnsy tiny question.” Fluttershy pardoned. “You don’t happen to have come across a pokemon trainer with a brown hat and a dark blue vest followed by a Bellsprout, have you?” Fluttershy had by now learned the name of almost every pokemon present in this region of Johto from her conversations with them. The butterfrees was about to tell her to beware of some other trainers nearby when there was sounds of twigs cracking in the denser part of the meadow. The butterfrees fled. Fluttershy flung her head around toward the sound. The unusually scaredy pony was already terrified. ‘Who's there!’ She almost exclaimed but cut her breath at the last moment. In one swoop with her wings she soared down behind some bushes. ‘Now this looks like the perfect spot!’ Brock thought to himself. ‘Oh no! He is going to hunt for a pokemon. He is going to capture the poor little butterfrees...’ Her face then turned pure terror as her thought finished ‘He is going to capture poor me!’ “Alright. Here we go!” Brock said out load to himself. Fluttershy felt her heart stop. “Time to make some COOKING!” Brock exclaimed happily. He then threw on a way to small white big mama cooking canvas. He pulled out a mobile kitchen and frying pan from his backpack. “Misty is going to love my newest rice recipe. Cheese filled rice balls with fried onions!” Fluttershy gave a small sigh of releaf. She didn’t notice the twigs laying right behind her as she put her back hoof down. Brock turned his head toward the cracking sound that seemed to be coming from behind the bushes. Curious he dropped his things and went to check what it was Fluttershy's heart where racing so fast she could feel her head thumping. ‘He is going to eat me!’ She thought. ‘He is going to cook a Fluttershy rice ball with onion flavor!’ Brock stared curiously at the bright yellow and winged pony creature he had found behind the bushes. She scrunched her body so low on the ground that she almost buried herself inside it’s roots. She looked at him with big eyes and was shacking uncontrollably. Brock was about to wonder what rare pokemon this could be when he suddenly had a struck of déjà vu. He remembered that white pokemon named Rarity that he had meet a couple of months earlier. Somehow this seemed to be the same type of pokemon, except this one had wings. “Hey, hey. Don't be scared.” He said in a whisper as he went into squatting. The creature seemed even more scared than before. Brock had an idea. “Here. Have some rice balls.” Fluttershy calmed down a little when the human offered her food. He seemed to be a nice trainer to Fluttershy. But she still felt herself react to every sudden movement made by the human. She stood up. She tasted the rice ball from the humans hand. Fluttershy can’t remember ever tasting something so good. She enjoyed it as much as she could while still being terrified to the bone. “Here have another one.” The human said and pulled out another rice ball. Twilight Sparkle where out looking for Fluttershy when her heart suddenly stopped. Right in front of her beside some bushes she saw Fluttershy standing in front of a human. The human had just pulled out a white pokeball from his pockets! There was a loud laser sound in the air. Brocks face was stuck in it’s happy offering position as his body with white canvas and everything had been trapped inside a bright lavender crystal. The rice ball went rolling down a hill behind him. “Fluttershy!” Twilight shouted. “Get away from there. There might be more of them.” Suddenly there was a voice behind Twilight. “Brock! Im here. I can’t what to taste what you have cooked...” Misty felt her words jam inside her throat. Right in front of her Brock was frozen inside a crystal of some sort with two strange pony creatures with odd tattoos on their flanks standing beside him. Misty, being a woman of action, didn’t ask any questions. “Don’t worry Brock. I’ll save you!” She grabbed a small pokeball from her pocket. She pushed the button in the middle. The pokeball grew to it’s normal size. “Lets Show them Totodile!” Misty shouted and threw the pokeball. The water reptile came out in a red flash. “Totodile. Water cannon!” Twilight gave a gurgling sound as the water hit her in the mane. She grabbed the water current with her horn magic and made it veer of to the side. Totodile paused “Totodile! Again! keep it flowing.” Misty commanded. Twilight grabbed the water again and this time had it veer of to the sky. It seemed like the rain was falling on a cloudless sunny day. Fluttershy was paralyzed. Everything seemed to happen at once to her. Twilight used her teleportation spell and teleported herself in front of Fluttershy to protect her. There where sounds of bushes being torn everywhere by the force of stray water being flung all over the place. Some of the trees were dropping water from its branches. The roaring sound of Totodile burping out the water stream and Twilights grunting echoed through the usualy quiet meadow. Twilight decided that defense wasn’t good enough. She fired a throwing spell toward Totodile. Totodile was thrown back several feet by it’s force. Twilight, her white teeth growling, fired several more shot. She wasn’t going to let Fluttershy be captured. Not her to. This time she rather be taken herself! Totodile jumped up to the air as he dodged Twilights shots. Rocks that where hit flung of into the woods behind them and bushes was torn from their roots by Twilights alicorn magic. After what only felt like a couple of minutes of fighting but was really close to twenty Twilight and Totodile where breathing so heavily that neither of them had the strength to make a move. “Totodile. Come back!” Misty shouted as she called back her tired pokemon. Twilight fell down to her four hooves. She was ready for the pokeball to be flung at her. She just hoped that the others would make it without her. Misty reached down in her pocket for the pokeball containing her squirtle when there was a roar in the air. “STOP! Cant you se you are DESTROYING THE FORREST WITH ITS ANIMALS!” Fluttershy have had enough. Misty should have been shocked that the pokemon was talking. But it was the hard glaring eyes of it that made her muscles freeze. Now she where the one being paralyzed. Suddenly Misty felt like her arms where being glued to her body Apple Jack flung the rope. The seasoned rodeo pony hit her mark bullseye. Within a second the female trainer where tied up. “Twilight. Fluttershy! Are you alright? We heard the fighting.” She said worried and barely understandable behind her thick country accent. Twilight stood up with her hooves shacking. She took a deep breath. “Huh. Im alright. Fluttershy?” Fluttershy was about to roar that she was not alright, thinking of all the pokemon rodents having to move after living under those torn bushes. But she didn’t want to be rude to her friends clearly being worried for her. “Im okay. Apple Jack. Thanks. And thank you Twilight. I don’t know what i would have done without you.” “And i don’t know what i would have done without you Fluttershy. Im sorry that the animals was trapped in the crossfire.” “Oh, it’s always painful. But sometimes it just happens. The important thing is to not ignore it.” Fluttershy said resolute. Suddenly they heard Rarity shouting. “Wait! Girls. He’s a friend!” Rarity was looking at Brook. Brock was unable to give back to Rarity for covering for him in his crystalized state. But at least Brocks frozen hand previously holding a rise ball almost looked like it was saying hello. Chapter 11. Ms Pinkiemon Pie “I am so sorry that i froze you Brock. I didn’t realize that you wanted my friend no harm” Twilight apologized. “It was a misunderstanding.” Brock said in the manliest voice he could. He admired the purple pony and her fighting spirit when she stood up for her friend, even if that had been the reason Twilight had turned him into a Brook museum exhibition during her fight with Misty. Twilight continued. “Also I'm sorry that i gave your Totodile such a hard time. I hope he is alright.” Twilight said as she turned to Misty. “It’s alright purple pony. I was about to run him through a training session anyway.” Misty answered as she curved her body in womanly fashion. Fluttershy gave Misty a withering look. She didn’t like her hoity toity ways. Her friend Rarity had the same ways granted, but in Misty's case she found them to be ignorant. Or maybe she was still angry after the whole meadow thing. She told herself to keep her emotions in check. She didn’t want to embarrass her friends. “...More like a Lavender colour.” Rarity corrected nicely as a answer to the remark regarding Twilights color. “And i believe that you should ask her for her name darling.” Rarity was having a girl conversation with Misty. Even though Misty was a human dressed in a rags Rarity could see that she was a lady underneath. “Thats right. Maybe i should tell you who we are.”Twilight corrected herself.” First of all we have me. Hi! I am Twilight Sparkle, the princess of friendship, and these are my friends! Girls?” Twilight looked at her pony friends. “Apple Jack is my name. Been a rodeo pony and farmer for most of my days.” Apple Jack crossed her right hoof in front of her left and put on the modest rodeo girl smile she could. “And I’m Rarity. But you know me already Brock. Nice to meet you to Misty.” “And I'm Fluttershy.” Fluttershy said softly. She felt like she had more to say, but she couldn’t bring herself to say it right now. “And i’m Pinkie Pie!” Pinkie pie boomed as she was jumping up and down. So much camping, traveling and fighting had been going on since the pink earth pony had come to Johto that she hadn’t really had a chance to do something fun. True, she still had her friends to get reactions from, but it was more fun to meet new ponies, or humans in this case. Everyone is a potential friend to Pinkie Pie. And all Pinkie Pie ever wanted was to se her friends smile. Without smiles Pinkie Pie felt her life being incomplete. And now as she was jumping up and down like she was on a trampoline in front of the first two friendly humans the mane 6 had met since their arrival to Johto she felt her passion rise again. The party pony sensed that balloons where about to be popped. She said everything following in one breath. “You know. Now when you know who we are and we know who you are we could have this BIG party. A welcome to be my friend party and THEN we can celebrate the monthly anniversary friendship between Rarity and Brock. Ooo... And while we’re at it we can plan for the BIRTHDAY of Brock 40 moons from now... although it is only one day from Jared’s Raritys OTHER friend’s birthday so maybe we should check and see if we can’t have two parties followed by one BIG PARTY. Ohh. This is so exiting. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!” Pinkie pie then took a deep breath as if she was going to suck up the air supply for the entire Johto region. “Friendship strike! Yipeee hi hi hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!” There was confetti popping out of nowhere as she got to the last part. The other ponies smiled normally toward Pinkie Pie. They knew her. Misty started jumping up and down with excitement. Brocks mouth was hanging limply wide open. He was in complete awe. “Wow Pinkie Pie. How can you possibly know MY birthday?! I never told Rarity. Did i?” He said. “I have my sources.” Pinkie Pie gave Brock a confident look. That look immediately widened again to happy face as she continued. “You know? All we really need to do now is to find our other friend Rainbow Dash and the party not be COMPLETELY in bad taste.” Pinkie pie lowered her head and looked sad after she said the last part. The difference between now and how she was 10 seconds ago made it almost look parody. “Who is Rainbow Dash?” Brock asked. “Our other friend.” Rarity broke in. “She is a pegasus pony.” Rarity looked at Twilight. Rarity felt like Twilight should tell the next part herself. “She was captured by a pokemon trainer during a...” Twilight took a deep breath. “Expedition. I wasn’t able to protect her.” “You mean she was captured in a Pokeball?” Brock asked. Twilight nodded. A question that had been inside Brocks brain for a while suddenly came back to him. Brock needed to word this the right way if it was not to be taken personally. “Pardon me for asking maybe a personal question. Rarity told me about your world a while ago and I have been thinking about this since it’s been clear that you Equestria ponies can be captured inside pokeballs. But do you think that you ARE pokemons? Cause as far as i know only pokemons can reside inside pokeballs?” Twilight looked at Brock with enthusiasm. “Well thats exactly why i began my expedition...” The other ponies looked at each other, they knew what was coming. “...You see. It depends on how you look at it. As far as i know there has been no documented gene sharing in-between dimensions. Although there have been documented travels in-between dimensions like this one. But there has been no documented proof of the inter dimensional chromosomes finding harmony with the imperfect time cells being in the way of the long term adaptation of reproduction cycles...” Brocks face was stuck in a odd smiling position as Twilight just kept on going. ”...Although that rule CAN be broken by the possibility of supernovas in the time space IN-BETWEEN the dimensions giving that there is a physical factor connecting them...” Twilight paused. She now noticed the still faces of the others. “...But then i was only looking at birds... Hehehe.” Twilights white teeth smiled at Brock. Despite Twilights ‘episode’ the other ponies and humans looked wonderingly at each other. Apple Jack then broke in. “Whatever Twilight said... that main part of it, being if we have pokemon blood or not... That is an interesting question.” Apple Jack said. Growing up on a farm, bloodlines and family ties had always been important to her. “So you mean that we could have been talking pokemons in Equestria the whole time?” Rarity was saying while putting on a fake smile. The thought that she the whole time had been an animal just thinking it is an sophisticated modern lady was making her absolutely horrified underneath her social mask. “Oh, but it is interesting indeed. I mean, who would not want to be a cute little animal?” Fluttershy said. Her small mouth jutting forward as she looked more innocent than ever made her almost look like a sheep with yellow wool. Everyone seemed to agree that the question was interesting. Everyone that is, except Pinkie Pie, who looked confounded at both her old and new friends. “Does that really matter?” She asked herself out loud. The group had set up camp for the night underneath a big tree. The sun was still out but was about to set as the horizon where turning red. Brock was making rice balls for the entire group. It had been Fluttershy that had convinced him. “I know the last time wasn’t the most pleasant for you. But i would be really, REALY happy if you could make me those rice balls again.” She had pleaded to him looking cuter than ever. Brock was more than happy to do it. In fact, as far as Brock knew, it would have been easier for him to break out of Twilights crystal than saying no to Fluttershy. While Brock was cooking Fluttershy was having an interesting conversation with a couple of beedrills inside the tree crown. Twilight and Rarity where having a private conversation a bit to the side from the others. “Do you think they can help us?” Twilight asked Rarity. She then looked at the humans named Brock and Misty. “I don’t think we have much of a choice.” Rarity said. ”They know the land. We should probably do a rundown with them of all the possible places we could find this trainer with brown hat and dark blue west.” Fluttershy flew down and joined them. “Girls. I have received some interesting information from the beedrills in the tree.” Twilight and Rarity looked at Fluttershy in wonder. Brock where also listening now. ‘If anyone could have found out where to find this trainer it would be Fluttershy talking to the animals.’ Twilight and Rarity both thought to themselves. But the information they where about to receive was not to be the one they expected. “I don’t know if you ever heard about this group calling themselves Team Rocket?” Fluttershy asked. Brock was suddenly alert, his answer didn’t hesitate. “A bad lot! Thats what they are. Stealing other trainers pokemons. They are nothing more than bunch of criminals.” Brock was about to continue his rant when he saw that Fluttershy was eager to continue. “Oh. Sorry.” He said looking at her. Fluttershy then continued. “I heard that there was a break in inside one of their bases. Apparently hundreds upon hundreds of pokeballs where stolen.” Twilight looked at Rarity with a frowned face. Twilight was now trusting Rarity to take on the leadership she had given her. Rarity didn’t hesitate to oblige. “Fluttershy. We really appreciate this information and you’re doing a great job getting it. But i don't believe this is really our business. We should focus on finding Rainbow Dash.” Rarity raised her head high as she said that last part. She imagined herself being the fabulous princess Rarity of Canterlot. “...But Rarity. It is rumored that the thief was an unicorn. Like you and Twilight.” Fluttershy ended. Twilight was suddenly alert. She galloped in front of Fluttershy pushing the fabulous princess Rarity of Canterlot screaming into some bushes. “Did you get a description?!” Twilight asked in panic. “No i didn’t. Apparently they only saw the silhouette. But they where SURE that it was a unicorn.” Fluttershy said firmly. The fact that only a silhouette had been seen didn’t ease the dark panic rising inside Twilight. Could it be that they where not the only ones that had come to Johto knowing about the power of the pokeballs? ‘Equestria is in danger!’ Twilight thought to herself as she imagined the entire ponyville population in the form of pokeballs inside a locked storage room. “When did this happen?!” Twilight asked. “Apparently it happened about a month ago.” “A month!!!” Twilight exclaimed so the entire Johto forrest could hear her. “But that was weeks BEFORE we got here! How could someone possibly have known?” “And how could they have gotten here without Discords help?” Fluttershy also asked. Rarity was now joining them. She gave Twilight a withering look. Twilight smiled widely at Rarity. Meanwhile Pinkie Pie was having her own discussion with Totodile, Misty's pokemon. Both Brock and Misty had let out some of their pokemons for socializing. “So you’re saying that you could jump all the way from that tree branch to that other tree branch on ONE swoop!” Pinkie Pie was entertaining the bragging reptile. “Totodile!” Totodile answered proudly. “Wooooooh” Pinkie Pie said. “That is waaaaaay further than i would do. Maybe we should have a jumping contest?!” Pinkie Pie said happily as she started jumping up and down. Totodile closed his eyes and smiled at the pink pony. “Totodile!” He answered Pinkie Pie face suddenly looked determined. She stopped jumping. “You know what?” She said firmly “Who cares if we are pokemons or not! We can be anything that we want to be. We can all be both pokemons AND ponies at the same time. Wouldn’t you say Totodile?” “Totodile!” Totodile answered approvingly “Pinkie Pie!” Pinkie Pie answered “Totodile!” Totodile repeated. Pinkie Pie laughed. “Pinkie Pie! Pinkie Pie!” She started jumping again. “Tooooooootodiiiile.” Totodile surfed the only word he knew. Now Pinkie Pie started moving forward slowly while jumping. With every jump she chanted her name on beat. “Pinkie Pie... Pinkie Pie... Pinkie Pie... Pinkie Pie...” Totodile followed her. “Totodile... Totodile... Totodile... Totodile...” There suddenly was a voice behind Totodile. “Squirtle... Squirtle... Squirtle... Squirtle...” Misty small tortoise pokemon was right behind Totodile. One after one the other pokemons followed. Misty and Brock watched in surprise as the rest of their pokeballs in their backpacks opened by themselves. Soon the air echoed with the blurring sound of 20 or so pokemons chanting their names while dancing in line behind the pink leader pony. Brock’s onix towered over all of them like a happy mountain. “Onix... Onix... Onix...” His voice made the ground shake. Twilight looked at Rarity in surprise. They smiled at each other. ‘No one can shake up the tension like Pinkie Pie can.’ Both of them thought to each other. Suddenly Rarity had an idea. She turned to Twilight. The following two minutes they laid the groundwork for a plan. “You want ME to infiltrate Team Rocket?” Pinkie Pie said surprised. Rarity and Twilight looked at each other and nodded. Rarity then told Pinkie Pie what the beedrills had told Fluttershy. “So you see Pinkie Pie.” Rarity was saying. “You are by far the best actor in the group. If anyone can pull this off it will be you! All you need to do is to convince them that you are a rare talking pokemon willing to show them where the rest of your kind lives and they are going to want and get on your good side.” Twilight then continued “While you’re in there you with your friend making skills should have no problem to track down someone who knows more about the mystical unicorn that broke in to their facility.” Pinkie Pie looked skeptical. “I don’t know. Sounds risky.” “Not at all Pinkie Pie.” Rarity said. ”All you need to do is be yourself. You are going to throw those criminals off their game like nobody else could!” Rarity said the last part dramatically. She then insured Pinkie Pie. “Don’t worry. We will be keeping watch outside the facility ready to intervene of things go south.“ Rarity paused. ”So? Will you do this for Johto and Equestria?” Pinkie Pie wasn’t the best at carrying responsibility. But she imagined the loneliness she would feel back home in Equestria if everyone had been trapped inside pokeballs. Pinkie Pies face then hardened into determination. “The answer is YES. I promise i won't let you down!” She then put her hoof above her head and gave salute. In her mind she was now ms Pinkiemon Pie, a private spy ready for her next orders. / Work in progress
  24. This is what keeps me thinking all night and i just wanted to say this to get off my crest.To any of my watchers who are Ponies fans, that if you want to know about me, Is understanding why I dislike Sonic x MLP crossover?I not considering complaining or trolling, on the Sonic fandom or MLP should crossover.THIS is MY OWN Personal opinion how Sonic and MLP are NOTHING Alike!this is like comparing lettuces and cabbages.The point of this is to analyze similar characters and finding to tell theme apart of find their similarities and differences.Dispite, there are know horrible shippings or bad fanfictions those plots that cliché or predictable.The one thing I hated this crossover because of fans comparing Sonic characters with the Mane Six,Some fans believe that these characters personalities and traits are similar to Sonic and his friends and they are totally the same characters,I wanted to see actual differences of characters and the series are they are NOT the same.It's just the way I see this similarities is that the Mane Six seemly didn't seem to stood out as individual and completely original characters,as fanS speculate that these characters are inspired from Sonic characters.These are common similarities of these characters if as you know.......Sonic = Rainbow Dash: for having being cool blue characters who are fast.Amy = Pinkie Pie: For being the color pink or somewhat randomCream = Fluttershy: Shy, kind, timid personalitiesBlaze = Twilight: Purple color and both princesses.Shadow = Sunset: Well having backstories that getting along the main characters and consider Chaos Emeralds = The Elements: Plot devices that involves defeating villains.Mane Six have something unique about them.I really wanted to know there any differences at all!I heard that Sonic characters are known be bland or bad.I'm sorry, I just wanted to see if there's anything more Unique traits to or any characters developments of these Pony characters, or anyone looking a deeper analysis on their personalities.MLP show is to have some respective nature and good writing of these episodes than any Sonic cartoon.This show doesn't revolve these ponies fighting random villains all the time. This show seems to have maturely and major changes in this show.So what to you think that Sonic characters inspired the Mane SIX
