  1. I wrote this story to go in the space themed UK- Ponycon2015 convention book. The Audio Book is narrated by the King of Creepy Pasta himself, the great and powerful Wutten https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w_ylcHRcshE It had been a few days since her launch into the history books. It had gone well, with the huge catapult throwing her high into the air as the rocket motors lit. An immense roar from beneath her seat slammed all skyward with a force so strong her ears flattened against her head. The initial shock and noise had soon abated once the clouds had finished speeding past the port holes. From there on in it had become more like a silent dream, laced with an eerie dull black. She was literally 'along for the ride' at this stage of the mission, sat atop a huge firework of metal and hope. After that excitement her life was filled with daily routine of space flight. She checked air levels, fiddled with taps and took notes. As she floated around the cabin from task to task she took the time to peer through the port holes in wonder. Behind her Equestria shrank smaller and smaller while in front the moon began to grow. It was soon very large indeed. The next part was hers and hers alone. The small silver unicorn couldn't help but ponder how her attempts at landing would turn out? There was no second chance here and the moon looked awfully big in the pilot's window. The hands on the clock showed it was time to take another sighting of her distance from the surface. She held the device firmly while bracing herself against the walls of the small cabin, so as not to float off halfway through. From the numbers, she could see that it was time to start slowing down for landing. Pulling the check list from her pocket she glanced at its contents while adjusting various knobs and valves, readying the machine for orbit. Another distance measurement showed it was time to suit up, strap in and fire the retro boosters. The pressing of the boost button was followed by a huge jolt as the great rocket began to shake and slow to a suitable velocity. She held on tight, feeling the straps yanking her back into her seat. The moons gravitational force began to take hold, pulling them down to its barren surface. This was her time to shine! A dream come true. A dream from long before the rocket shaped cutie mark had appeared on her flank. The cardboard tubes and singed mane of her youth had all led to this point. As her first model rocket had streaked into the sky she knew where she needed to be. Reaching out a gloved hoof she cut the boosters, bringing silence to the craft. The next bit was going to be really hard. She activated the control thrusters and gingerly began to steer her way down to the dull grey land below. From a side window she could see the shadow of the craft, the dark outline making an ideal reference point to stop her crashing into the surface. But it was moving very quickly indeed. Instantly she was in flight mode, her mind racing as the moon came rapidly up towards her. "Not like this," she hissed through clenched teeth, steering this way and that. Blasting the retro-boost periodically, she was a blur of hooves as she fought to prevent herself slamming into the ground below. "Oh no, oh no, one last burn......." and touchdown. Within seconds it was all over, the metallic beast stood firmly and four legged on the moon. Inside, sitting bolt upright, with sweat pouring from her brow, was the most relieved pony ever! Regaining her composure she raised the radio arial to report to base. "Phoenix to base, we have touch down. Am making preparations to walk on the surface, over," she called out across the ether. It was now time to unbuckle herself, go through the shutdown procedure and open that door! A crackled voice sang form the speaker, "Well done, we are so excited, go get em' tiger, over!" A few minutes later the diminutive form climbed carefully down the steps with a glass helmet and a life support pack tied to her back. The moon felt weird, and none of the descriptions of low gravity prepared her for how light she felt. She half expected to feel like she did when she was a small filly, riding high into the sky on the back of a pegasus. She actually felt like she was supported by elastic! Bouncing along the surface she could travel huge distances in a single leap, landing gracefully on all four hooves with a giggle. Or at least, she could after a few attempts, her first steps causing her to trip and fall. After jumping around a bit more she collected small rocks and dust in a little bag before sitting down for a rest. There was a very good reason for having a unicorn as mission commander. Eating in the vacuum of space would be very difficult indeed, unless of course, you could levitate a carrot or two from an inner pocket. And no pony wanted to wander round a strange land without some sort of snack! It was at this point the magnitude of the sight above hit her. The distant blue and green circle in the black sky looked alien and not at all like the place where she lived. It was difficult to imagine her friends so far away living their every day lives? "Phoenix to base, are you still there, over." "Base to Phoenix, are you okay? Over," came a crackled and concerned reply. "I'm fine, it's just that you all seem a very long way away right now. I suddenly felt very small, but I'm okay now, over." She shook off the unexpected feeling of loneliness and returned to the task at hoof. "Oh well, time for a bit more exploring," she said to herself, before bouncing off to look in different craters. They all appeared the same apart from their size. But none had space flowers in them or anything exciting. Just more grey dust as far as the eye could see. There was the odd rock that was interesting, so into the bag they went with the others. Too soon it was time to go. Oh how she longed to stay on the moon. A day or even a few more hours maybe? But she couldn't. Stepping back into the space craft she closed the door behind her, checking its seal carefully to make sure it would be air tight. It would be a miserable trip back home if she had to spend it stuck in a space suit, her food and water tantalisingly close but beyond reach in the supplies locker. "Phoenix to base, am preparing to leave the moons surface. Initial rocket fire in ten minutes." Turning on the cabin lights she caught her reflection in the window, sad blue eyes looking back at her. No! She wouldn't let herself get like this. She was on the moon for goodness sake. This was the best day of her life. Strapping herself back into her seat she again reached for the main rocket switch. Slowly at first and then with greater speed, the moon shrank away into the distance. No denying it now, she was a space pony! The End Idris
  2. Would love to go there in the winter and hike along the snowy ridge. Scotland is beautiful, isn't it? Its beauty's too often overlooked. But if you just take a closer look you can't help but be awed by its fairy tale esque landscape
  3. The Dolomites in Italy. Each photo of the mountain range just takes my breath away. Can't imagine what emotions and what awe I would experience being there in the flesh

  5. --- "Psst... hey! Symphony, wake up!" Said Kandy. "Go back to sleep, Kandy. Whatever it is, it can wait..." "NO! It can't wait! Sunset is not in her bed!" Symphony woke up quickly, asking: "what do you mean by 'not in bed'?" "Mom and dad wouldn't believe me, but as I pass by her room at night, I usually hear her snoring. Today everything was quiet, and as I checked... NOTHING!" That night, my search after my little sister has begin. -Years later- "Good morning, Symphony. You woke up to a nice day of summer." Kandy said. Symphony smiled at her as she went into the kitchen. "Your mane looks amazing today, have you done something to it?" Kandy asked. "Why are you so kind? You're usually pretty grumpy when it's morning." Symphony replied. "Well, I was wondering if you know what your best friend thinks about me." "Kandy, enough, I'm not telling you if Note has a crush on you." Symphony replied. "Well, I guess you can make breakfast on your own. By the way, the eggs are gone." Kandy simply replied. Symphony rolled her eyes and said: "I'll just go get some eggs, then." She took her stuff and left the house, and Kandy was disappointed; she was hoping that Symphony will tell her. "That Kandy... I wish she never met Note, she keeps asking about him." Symphony said to herself. She was so annoyed at Kandy that she bumped into another pony. "I'm really sorry, miss, we just heard that the sirens were defeated long ago by our hero, princess Twilight." He said. Symphony asked: "who are the sirens?" "I've got no time to lose, I must run. The heroes we should thank them are Twilight Sparkle and... that Sunset!" He said as he ran. 'Sunset? Could it be my little sister?' 'Wa-wait! Sunset what?!" Symphony yelled, but she got no response. She ran across the town, looking for someone who knows more about the event. No one really knew who is that Sunset, and some were surprised to hear that the sirens still exist. She ran for 15 minutes without getting any answers, until she bumped into somepony again- but this time, it looks like luck was on her side. "Princess Twilight... I'm so sorry." She said. "You don't look good, why won't you rest for a minute?" "I'm sorry, Twilight, but I can't. You are the one who has answers, you are the one who might know where my sister is. Her name is Sunset Shimmer, and if you really care, I really need to know where she is. I want to see her." "I do know where she is." Twilight replied. A spark of happiness was lit in Symphony's eyes, but then Twilight said: "but I can't let you access her, it's a secret that is better to be hidden." "But Twilight, I'm getting married in two weeks. I really want my youngest sister to be there, especially after all of these years." "I'm really sorry. It's better for me to leave, so I won't cause any sadness. Altough Twilight said no, Symphony had a plan. "I thank you for your time. Please, I want you to have something." Symphony said. She took out an invitation from her bag, and topped it with a little bit of tracking dust when Twilight couldn't notice. "If you ever see her, I want you to give her this." Symphony gave Twilight an invitation for her wedding, and Twilight left. Symphony ran back home. The door was opened, and Symphony stormed inside. "Have you brought any eggs?" "Forget the eggs, Kandy! I'm going to return Sunset back home." Symphony said proudly.

  7. Book 1 Reborn of the Unknown Pony Chapter 1 Getting out pt 1 Once upon a time there was a big city, there was a lot of ponies and they all had a cup of coffee every 12:00 pm in that hour. So nothing changes and they keep doing it every day until 2315 years later. Discord became bored, went to evil and made chaos again. Then Twilight Sparkle stop him and use the elements of harmony. One week later in 2315 on August 4th in the land of nowhere. There is a factory with lots of darkness and black with lots of shadows. There is a house to the north of the factory about 30 miles. The house is made 30 years ago. The house stairs are all rusted and gloomy. The house is also old and the wall keeps making noises. The pool was 12 x 12 and 7 feet deep with water in it. The pool had green water in it and a lot of flowers of the poison joke known as the curse flower. Deep down in the basement some-pony down there to live to tell the tale. In a weird most scary looking container that is 4 ft wide and 7 ft tall (science test subjects container) it also has water in it with a pony with an oxygen mask in the container. Then the pony began to breathe, it began to move, it began to scream in fear. Then the container broke and things get interesting. Five changelings came in the house at the 1st floor and they are about to attack the place. I pick up a weapon, it had a laser that I can shoot with. It also had a clock. It also had a temperature thermometer on it. It was leather and had some components of carbon steel. I equipped it on my right hoof. Then an A.I spoke said. "Ok here are the controls. Square button is to reload. Circle is to melee. Triangle is to change weapons. X button is to jump. The right trigger is to shoot. The left trigger is your grenades." Snow Crystal goes into battle with 200 HP and 200 MP. The changelings made lots of noise and rattle above the floor. The changelings came down the stairs and attack. In slow mode I rolled on the ground and attack the first changeling. Then I sweep kick the 2nd and shot it. Then I kick the 3rd in the face and shot it. Then the 4th changeling ran away like a chicken while doing the chicken dance back to Queen Chrysalis and King Sombra. Who, who am I…? screams. "Is this a dream but i am not sure if this is true is it? Who, who is this person." Said the pony. Some mysterious soul said. "Hello your name is Snow Crystal. You must find him before it is too late and hurry." in a scary voice. "So my name is Snow Crystal. So who was that guy or girl? Was it all a dream? I'm not sure but it feels like I know him or her." Snow Crystal goes to the upper floor 56 BF. Snow Crystal saw something that is so small and too hard to see and hard to aim. "Ok this is it I am taking you down with the laser." As Snow Crystal looks around for more. I change to a three burst shot and took down 60 small monsters. Then I went closer to see what the monster looks like. "Parasprites." As Snow Crystal screamed. Goes up to floor 55 BF. "More of them jeez." As Snow Crystal gets bored. Snow Crystal looks at a shiny small thing. "What is this something that looks like a golden color. I see that some of them are dropping stuff I can't remember what it is called." A.I spoke. "Gold and shiny but they are now called bits you use them to buy stuff. Bits can buy you clothes, armor, dresses, households, and train tickets. It is most likely you need them in the future where you are going." "Will they drop weapons?" As Snow Crystal gets hyped. A.I as a boring tone. "Yes most monster drop items maybe you should try go back to floor 57 BF." Snow Crystal went back to 56 BF. Full of dead parasprites that is in the room. Snow Crystal went to 57 BF. Wait is that changeling but how is that possible. As the A.I Identify. "It is using Magic it." "Magic oh no." As Snow Crystal is thinking out a plan. The changeling change into your self as a pony. "What is that?" A.I spoke as if he know. "A changeling has ability to use any sorts of magic. But beware some magic users are very dangerous." Snow Crystal get all scares. "How dangerous can they be exactly." The changeling use punched and sends Snow Crystal back into a wall. "Oh so that's how it is." As Snow Crystal goes into action. Snow Crystal has 150/200 HP left. Snow Crystal use bite. Critical hit. Changeling has left 450/700 HP left. The changeling uses punch. Snow Crystal has left 100/200 HP left. Snow Crystal use bite. Changeling 350/700 HP left. Changeling use kicked. Snow Crystal 40/200 HP. Snow Crystal as she keeps getting injured "This is too hard we have to run." The A.I spoke in a annoying way. "Hold on you got something in your pouch 5 potions I think." Snow Crystal looks at the A.I shackle. "Wait what. You would've told me before and there is 1 potion left in the backpack." The A.I Laughs. "Oops sorry I guess someone forgot to send more potions for this dungeon." Snow Crystal slap herself with the left hoof into her face 20/200 HP left. Then she drinks the potion 170/200 HP left. Snow Crystal use sweep kick at the changeling. The changeling has 150/700 HP left. Changeling is now paralyzed. Changeling can't move. Snow Crystal use the laser. Changeling 0/700 HP left and fainted. Snow Crystal pick up an item that might be useful in future. She picked up a net catcher weapon and now she is equipping it to the left hoof because the laser is on it's right hoof. Snow Crystal went up stairs to 56 BF there was dead parasprites in the room. Went up to 55 BF there was dead parasprites in the room. Went up to 54 BF there were a lot of books in that one small bookshelf. Snow Crystal read 10 books before she went to 53 BF. The First Book was about the created of Ponyville. Second book was about how they built Camelot back in the day. Third Book tells you how Luna gets banish to the moon. Fourth book tells you how Discord went evil. Fifth book tells you how the changelings went evil. Sixth book gives you a description on the elements of harmony. Seventh book tells you the elemental tree of harmony. Eighth book tells how the elements was use for and created. Ninth book tells you the story of Crystal ponies. Tenth book tells you about the mystery of magics. Snow Crystal takes all 10 books in inventory. Snow Crystal found a door. The door's locked. She was thinking of finding the key. Snow Crystal went to 53 BF and it was dark. "It's too dark to see." Said Snow Crystal. She goes straight blindly and trips over something then hit her head on an object 100/200 HP left. She put her hoof on the object and tries to find it with feel. She notice it was an object on top of another object that she bumped into. She clicks on the button. The lamp turned on. Snow Crystal thinks. "Hmm so this is a desk and I should look in the drawers." First drawer has a combine and it has a number on it. The number is 8 also she found a key. She looks in the second drawer and found a flashlight. She tries to turn on the flashlight but it didn't work she also check for the battery but there was none. Snow Crystal went back down a floor to 54 BF and she went to the left to open the door but the door's locked. Then she open her inventory and grabs the key and it fit's. The door is unlock. The room has a radius of 25 ft and 7.5 ft high. In the room there was more bookshelves in a circumference format and the bookshelf was 7 ft high. In the middle there was a cabinet. As Snow Crystal walks to the cabinet there were four drawers. She checked the top left and opened it. Empty. She checked the top right. She found a number 5. She checked the bottom right. She found a battery. She checked bottom left. Snow Crystal gets A letter. Snow Crystal reads the letter. The combination is how many numbers did you received. Snow Crystal forgot what the numbers were. "Ok A.I we have numbers we have 8 and 5 and 2. Hmm that's not a lot of numbers. What do you think they meant for?" A.I spoke as if he knew it all. "Its meant for a combine of a lock or a security clearance." Snow Crystal is confused. "Ok tell me what does security clearance mean." A.I spoke in general. "To unlock something." Snow Crystal spoke as if she was trying to survive. "Hope it leads to food and water. A.I do you know what floor we are?" A.I spoke to next level of the floor. "54 BF." Snow Crystal get depressed. "Really that's a long way up are you sure there isn't an elevator somewhere?" Snow Crystal sleeps 1 hour and dreams. "A.I can you hear me?" As Snow Crystal open her eyes. Waited 1 minute, no answered. "Why is it getting so hot out here it's like a desert. With lots of hot sand and vultures that are flying above me." As she was thinking the A.I was broken Snow Crystal. "Have I died or something? Is this what happens when you don't believe in god? Is this the afterlife?" As Snow Crystal get's hot out in the sun. Snow Crystal goes under the tree for shade. She is thinking in mind. "Well maybe I shouldn't kill parasprites and changelings they are living beings after all. I don't know why but I feel like a story writer is typing on what do or like a legend, that has to-be my destiny to fight them. Who knows? The alarm goes off. She wake up. She gains 10 HP. "A.I what time is it." As if Snow Crystal really want to know what time it is. "It's about 7:00 AM. You had a bad dream so I woke you up." Spoke as a true A.I normally would say. "Can you remind where are we?" Snow Crystal as snow gets confused. A.I spoke as if he knows where we going. "We are in the unlocked door in 54 BF." "Ok time to move out." As Snow Crystal lead the way. Snow Crystal goes back to the unlock door and went to the other room then she walk up stairs to 53 BF. Then she walks up stairs to 52 BF. Just outside the door of 52 BF there is a security access. Snow Crystal ask the A.I for the code. A.I remembers the numbers. "8,5,2." Snow crystal type in the exact numbers. "The code didn't work." As Snow Crystal panic. Snow Crystal finally calms down as she knew something. "Ok so it's a 3 number password." Snow Crystal typed in 2,5,8. Access denied. Snow Crystal typed in 5,8,2. Access denied. Snow Crystal typed in 2,8,5. Access granted. Snow Crystal gets happy from depression. "Finally." A.I said. "Ok where in but there something I must make you do." Snow Crystal said. "Make it quick I'm a hungry pony." A.I spoke as he plans out. "Ok step on this square you need a light test." Snow Crystal get's bored. "Do I have to do that. That's so stupid as 3.14. To look at the flashing lights that are on. You gotta be kidding me right?" A.I laughs. "Just do it." "Fine I'll do it." As Snow Crystal leads back to depression. Snow Crystal walks to the right to the square and she saw no lights on. A.I comes out of the shackle. "Give me a moment to fix some of the test." The middle door opens and you can smell hay and hear water drops. "I'm getting tortured by an A.I when the food and water is in the next room." As Snow Crystal thinking in his mind. A.I spoke as he want the pony to go through with it. "Look at the top light." Snow Crystal looks at the top light. A.I spoke as thinks the pony would do it. "Look at the bottom light." Snow Crystal looks at the bottom light. Snow Crystal complains. "Are we done yet?" A.I laughs. "No. But do you prefer inverted." Snow Crystal looks at the A.I. "Really... I prefer the default. Are we done?" A.I laughs. "No. Now look at the left." Snow Crystal gets tired but looks to the left anyway. A.I as the it can't stop giggling. "Now look to the right." Snow Crystal look at the right. A.I spoke as if he was being a jerk about it. "Do you want the horizontal be inverted." Snow Crystal gets tired. "NO. Are we almost done yet." A.I spoke as if, it wanted to make her head speed the peace. "Nope. Now follow the lights start from top to bottom and left to right." Snow Crystal looked at the top once more than the bottom then left to right." A.I laughs. "Wait you forgot to say amen. Try again." Snow Crystal put her left hoof and smacked her face. 30/200 HP. Snow Crystal look at the top than bottom then left then right. "Amen." A.I knows that the door is finally unlocked. "The door where you smell food and water is now permanently open." Snow Crystal runs over to the food and eat hay and drink water. As Snow Crystal sings a rock style music. Oh how I love this food this yummy and tasty food. It is so good and the time I thought I was going to starve too. Oh how I love this food yummy and tasty food makes me feel so good. The flavor is so dry and sweet but it is never too sour or spicy just the way I like it. I wish that I can buy it. I can't wait to even try it. Oh how I love this food it gives you a lot of energy I don't even have to worry. Oh I wish I could get some apples that goes with my pineapples. Oh I wish I have some baits to get some really good-looking crates that are berries where can I get some crystal berries it shouldn't affect me so please don't worry. Oh how I love this food yummy and taste food. Where I can see it and smell it and even taste it. Oh how I love food yummy and tasty food. I just hope I don't get the food sickness flu. I hope I don't get the food sickness too. Snow Crystal stretches her legs then she looked around the place for any useful bottles to carry for water. Snow Crystal went back to the test room. She went to the door on the left of her. She in the room about 23 x 23 what's in the room just a chest and a wardrobe. Snow Crystal opens the wardrobe first she found cloths and she puts them on. Snow Crystal Goes to the chest and tries to open it. Needs a key to open chest. Snow Crystal walks out of the room and head straight and open the door. Snow Crystal goes into the 3rd room and there were 3 bottles on the ground. Snow Crystal picked them up. There was a desk on the far left corner she open the first drawer and found a battery. Then she open the second drawer she found the key. She goes out of the room and went to her left she goes in that room to wash the bottles and pour water on each 3 of the empty water bottles. Then she grab some hay to go with her. She left the room and went to her left to another room. She look in her inventory and use the key on the chest. She found a coin purse that had 500 bits in there. Now she has 5005 bits. Although she founds a lever in there. She pulled it. On the right side of the floor went up to a staircase. Snow Crystal went to inventory and took two batteries and put them in the flash light. She turn it on to see if it works. The flashlight works and Snow Crystal smiled. Snow Crystal went up the stairs to 51 BF. She goes in the room but there was an open chest in the middle of the room. Snow Crystal look to see what's in side. Snow Crystal found some rope... Snow Crystal looks up and saw there was a big hole... Snow Crystal went up stairs to 50 BF. Snow Crystal looks down and see the big hole. She also see a plank across the room. She use the rope to grab the plank to make a cross the room. Puts the rope back in inventory. Snow Crystal looks at the rope as she put it in the inventory. "This might come in handy." Snow Crystal balance on the plank and made it across without losing focus. Snow Crystal walks up stairs to 49 BF. She sees a hallway and 1 door on both sides. Snow Crystal goes to the left door and opens nothing here but dust. Snow Crystal saw something shine she goes to it. She found a Key. Snow Crystal goes back to the hallway and opens the other door she notice that the door's locked. Snow Crystal use that key to open the door. The door is unlock. She then went in that room and found more stairs. Snow Crystal went up a floor to 48 BF. She went in the room but this time she see 5 floors at once. A.I plans out a route. "How good are you at running?" Snow Crystal is scared. "Not that great." A.I tells whats going to happen. "That these platforms and staircase is unstable once you get on that staircase it will collapse all the way to the 5th floor. Once you're there you have to open the door and get inside as fast as you can." Snow Crystal staircase. "This is too crazy who ever made this place has been insane design staircase." Snow Crystal rest before she went to the first staircase. Snow Crystal gets scared. "Here goes nothing." Snow Crystal looks at the route to get to 43 BF. Snow Crystal runs to the first staircase then she went right then straight then slide and went to the right again she ran to the 2nd stair case.

Once she reaches at the top of the 5th staircase she slides and turns around then she runs straight to the door as the floor collapsing behind her she runs to the door and open it quickly and made it inside. "A.I remember not to come here again." As Snow Crystal is out of breath. Snow Crystal takes a breather and then she falls asleep and then dreams. Snow Crystal walks straight into the dark and spooky shadows of the Everfree Forest. "Where am I? Is this where I'm post to be? Snow Crystal saw Queen Chrysalis and King Sombra together. They were happy once and it looks like they have a daughter but it's all a blur. Snow Crystal wakes up. "A.I how long was I sleeping." As Snow Crystal open her eyes and things were blurry. A.I tells how many hours. "About 6 hours or most." Snow Crystal had a question. "What time is it?" A.I tells the time. "6:00 PM." "We better get moving A.I the nightmares are getting weird by the second." As Snow Crystal feared. A.I gets ready. "Ok ready when you're." Snow Crystal hears noise on next floor.

She sees a dark hall way with 2 doors on the left and 2 doors on the right. Snow Crystal opens the door. As she sees a dark hall way with 2 doors on the left and 2 doors on the right. She tries to open the first left door and it is locked. She tries to open the door behind her and it opens you see a rat stuck on a mouse trap. She went right and help the rat out on the counter top. The mouse went straight and then left and then the mouse slides on the broom stick to the left of the room into a hole. Snow Crystal was searching the cabinets for food and supplies. Snow Crystal receives 10 cheese sticks. The mouse returned and gave Snow Crystal a key. The mouse looks happy and wants to join Snow Crystal on her quest out of the dungeon. Snow Crystal receives a pet. Snow Crystal goes out of the room. She goes to the other side of the hallway to try to open the left door but it's locked. Snow Crystal goes into inventory and use the key. The key doesn't work. She turns right as she walks forward to go to the 2nd left door. The door opens. She sees a hole that a mouse can get to on the left side of the room. She use a cheese stick for the mouse to grab something from the hole. The mouse goes into the hole and searches. While Snow Crystal looks at a bed and investigate it. She thinks that the bed is so old. She goes on the bed but the bed breaks and there is no mattress. The mouse has returned and gave Snow Crystal a key. Snow goes out of the room and across the hall to the other door. It opens you see a picnic basket. Snow Crystal opens the picnic basket and receives a key. She goes out of the room and turns left then walks forward then takes a right to the other door that was locked. She uses the 2nd key it didn't work. She uses the 3rd key from the basket it works. The door opens. In the room she sees a picture on the left side of the room. It's Princess Celestia picture. She took it down and saw a lever. Snow Crystal pulls the lever. The back wall moved and has a code combination. 34,67,32,43,65,38. Then she goes out of their room and went left then straight till she comes upon a door with 6 key slots and combination of 30-70. She use the first key in the first key slot it fits.

She use the second key to the third key hole and it worked. She matches the combination to 32. She use the second key to the fourth key hole didn't work. She now realized that the last key hole for the second key fits and she matches it with 38. Then she knew that the second key hole and the fourth key hole was with the third key. She puts the third key in the second key hole to matched with 67 and the fourth key hole match to 43. The door is now unlocked. Snow Crystal went to 41 BF. She opens the door and she sees a lot of floors. Snow Crystal shivers like she wont be able to make it. "That is a long way up." A.I calculated. "It seems that it's about 16 floors high." As Snow Crystal sings in a rock music. Oh I wish I could fly it seems like it's easy as pie oh I hope I don't have to die. All this time I fell asleep in a container I didn't have any retainers. When I see myself in a mirror I feel like a boring new creator. Oh, Oh why. Oh I wish I could fly it seems like it's easy as pie oh I hope I don't have to die. I wish I had wings it would be simple with those things. It could it could. I wish I could fly and it's better than to die. Oh I have to hope maybe it's time to get some rope then you lost it and you go oh nope. Oh I wish I could fly it seems like it's easy as pie I hope I don't have to die. When you are further apart. It feels like you're in a deep depth chart and that is the worst part. When you Go out side it is time to get a new ride when you go down that slide. Oh I wish I could fly it seems like it's easy as pie oh I hope I don't have to die. It is time to worry that I know it is time to be so crazy. It is time to say this song isn't a crime it only because this is the longest rhyme. Oh I wish i could fly it seems like it's easy as pie oh I hope I don't have to die. When you get to have those wings I really want to have those things. Oh I wish I could fly it seems like it's easy as pie oh I hope I don't have to die. Oh I wish I could fly. Snow Crystal sees a metal claw on the ground. She picked it up. A.I tells an important description. "You can re-change your left weapon to a grapple hook." Snow Crystal went to the left side of the room and use the sturdy bench table. It took a few hours to change it. Snow Crystal is asking a question. "What time is it now?" A.I tells the time. "It's about 12:00 AM." Snow Crystal gets intense. "Lets make it to 25 BF." The ground shakes. Snow Crystal use the grapple to 35 BF cut the string found another grapple hook. Then she use the grapple to aim at 29 BF cut the string and then found another grapple hook. Then she uses the grapple at 26 BF platform cut the string and found another grapple hook. Then she opens the door and went upstairs to 25 BF. Book 1 Reborn of the Unknown Pony Chapter 2 Getting Out pt 2 As Snow Crystal opens the door she sees a hallway with 6 changelings. The changelings looked at Snow Crystal down the hallway. Then they charged at her. Snow Crystal stood there for four seconds and then the first that was closest to her she shot the changeling with the laser in 14 feet of range. Then the second came in 12 feet range and the laser hits the second changeling. Then two came down running together. Snow Crystal got close to them and jump on their two heads and roll half way to get two clean shots of the back of the two changelings. The other two changelings got scared so they stopped and ran the other direction. Snow Crystal checks all the bodies. She found a key from the body that was farthest from the door. Snow Crystal continues the hallway she sees 1 door on the right. She opens the door and sees a bed room. She search the end table and she found a note. It said. "This key will open the locker #137." She goes out of the room. Turns right and continue the hallway. Then Snow Crystal sees the stairs and went up the floor to 24 BF. She went down another hall way with no doors but she sees pictures of ponies, pegasus, unicorns, griffins, and alicorns. As Snow Crystal walks down further she see more stairs. Snow Crystal walks up stairs 23 BF. After she gets up stairs she then sees pictures of weird monsters. As she continue the hallway she sees a door at the end of the hall way. Snow Crystal opens the door to the next room. Then she sees 4 glass mirrors. On the left she sees a lizard with a head of a goat and body of a snake. On the far right she sees a female that is black with hole in her legs. But in the middle she sees a Dark unicorn. When she walks in front of the picture it shows that this person got defeated by the crystal heart. On the right it shows a bull picture that got defeated by an unknown of spirit energy elements. The door shut behind her. She ran over there and try to unlock it but no use not even the keys she had would open the door. Then she sees an end table coming from the ground in the center of the room it has a green button. She went to the end table in the middle and then when she was close to the end table she then close her eyes and press the green button. Then she back up in a quick ready place as she ready for a trap to happen. Then the Ground shakes as 4 Greek pedestal came up from the ground by the 4 mirrors. Each pedestal had a book. Snow Crystal grab the far left as it once said. "Once upon a time when discord is-created he had a mother and a father. But the rest of the pages were missing." She grabbed the next book to the right it said. "Once upon a time when King Sombra was a little filly. But although there were some missing pages." She grab the next book to the right it said. "Triek the leader of the darkness commander. But the rest of the pages were missing." She grab the last book on the right. The four pedestal went back down and the ground shakes massively in the room. On the other side of the room the wall has pop out a stair case. She runs to the stair case with the 4 books in her inventory as the ground shakes hard. As she slowly walks to the 8th step of the staircase behind her the stair steps disappears as more stairs pop out in front of her. She knows that she has to run as the front steps are getting there faster and behind her the steps disappears faster. When she made it to 13 floor she then sees a door that was 65 steps away it said 10 BF. Her mind said. "Please don't be locked." As she was running she was thinking of bashing the door in one go. She bash the door as the stairs behind her disappeared. Snow Crystal drinks half of the water bottle and eat some hay. Snow Crystal was so tired from running up stairs. She also gave some cheese for her pet. Snow Crystal looks at the A.I. "What time is it? A.I tells the time. " About 1:00 PM." Snow Crystal sleeps and then she had a dream. She was in a place with a sunset next to an unknown pony that she didn't know. She saw 3 filly's and 2 colts. When she looked at the stallion that was sitting next to her. He was smiling and happy. Then she look beside him as saw food as if she had a picnic together. While the fillies and colts play together and laughed together. The sunset was so beautiful the colors were yellow, orange, red, pink,purple and then dark blue. After we had the pick nick the stallion next to me wanted to show me something at night later that day it was dark outside and the 3 filly's and 2 colts were a sleep. The stallion showed me the stars at night. The stallion laugh and smile then Snow Crystal slanted as if she's tired. The stallion said something but it was too hard to hear as the voice was blurry. A.I screams. Snow Crystal wakes up immediately. "Changelings are coming." As A.I heard foot steps. "Alright let's go." As Snow Crystal gets ready for action. You hear a sound. She grab a stick and prepare for what's at the corner. She found a piece of a broken mirror glass she picked it up then she use it around the corner to see if there are changelings. She sees a colt and the colt is crying. She walks up to it. "What ya doing here alone." The Colt cries. "I had a fight and went here but now I am lost and I want to go home." Snow Crystal walks to her slowly and gives her a hug. "Stay strong colt. Life is hard at some points. Let's get you back home ok." Colt cried. "Ok." The colt stomach growled. Snow Crystal give the last hay and gave the colt water. Snow Crystal goes up stairs 9 BF. They both pull the levers at the same time to open the door to go into the room. They enter the room they both see that there is not stairs but a lot of boxes that looks like a staircase the colt goes first and climbs the boxes to get to the upper door as Snow Crystal goes behind the colt to make sure that the pony doesn't fall. They go up to 8 BF Then they both see a skinny bridge about 2.5 x 90. Snow Crystal let the colt go first and she went behind the pony for when if the colt falls. They both across the bridge with a little hesitation. They both go up stairs 7 BF. Snow Crystal opens the door. See an empty room. They both enter the room. The colt looks down. "I remember this place. But the stairs went down as well as flat as the floor. There is a key hole in the center that said #137." Snow Crystal looks in that inventory. "I happened to have that key." Snow Crystal use the key. The floor made 2 staircases and a platform that leads to the 1 BF Snow Crystal now sees that there is a hidden door wall in the middle of the 2 staircases. Snow Crystal looks at a key hold. "Colt I'll meet you upstairs there something I must do down here first." The colt looks at Snow. "Can I come with you?" Snow Crystal looks at the colt. "It's something I have to do alone. After I'm done I'll be right behind you don't worry." The Colt goes up the stairs. "Ok just don't take too long." Snow Crystal looks at him. "You have my word." The colt starts going up stairs. As Snow Crystal saw a hidden door she sees another keyhole. She looks at the colt and she is long gone out of reach. Snow Crystal use the #137 Key it fits as well and she turned it. She opens the door she sees a chest saying Snow Crystal on it. She use the #137 key on it the chest opens. She took 137,000 bits. Now she has 142,005 bits. She goes out of the room and the room shakes. Snow enter the room and once she got to the middle the floor went up as like an elevator. The floor went up a bit then stopped and Snow Crystal sees a green button and a red button. Snow Crystal speaks in her mind. "I guess I have to override the manual." Snow Crystal hits the green button. The platform moves up. When she sees the colt. "Hey colt over here. This is better than doing the stairs." Snow Crystal hits the red button. The colt jumps on to the platform. Then Snow Crystal hits the green button as the platform reaches further up. Then the platform stops and then the short bridge to the other side to both platforms evenly. They arrived at first floor. Then the filly opens the door it leads to a cavern. As they see two ways to go. They head left but as they go further it was a dead-end. They turn around and went back and then they did a u-turn to the left. Then they go in open space and took a break. "Well colt can you sing?" As Snow Crystal looked at the colt. "Well I never sing before." The colt looks down in shame. "Give it a shot." As Snow Crystal looks like he can do it. Colt sings in a Hip-Hop music. Oh I'm so hungry. There is something wrong with my tummy. I wish I had more food and fuel. It's this place that is so dang cruel. But when I found you, you look so awesome and cool. I hope we see each other in the future. Be best friends just like that architecture. We see something in different mates. We might lose our self's in our current states. We need to get out of this cave. We need to find puzzles and be brave. Oh I am so hungry I could eat a fish. Oh please put it in my dish. Oh we need more food as were so tired in the dark. Maybe somepony might hear us bark. "Well that's all I have." The colt looks depressed. Snow Crystal gets happy and shocked. "Wow that's something. That was really good." The colt looks at Snow. "Do you sing?" Snow Crystal looks back at the colt. "Kinda." The colt convince Snow Crystal to sing. "I want to hear you sing." Snow Crystal sings in a rap music. Oh I wish to see daylight when the sun is very shine bright but it's almost like a flashlight which is very bright. Where the river is all clear and the sky doesn't have dark and fear but it's so weird. I tie my shoe but it doesn't stick like glue but the crowd goes aw boo. I chew taffy it just wants to make you so laugh. Oh I wish I was outside to the beautiful view I hope I don't get the flu which almost like glue and the crowed goes boo. Oh I wish to see daylight when the sun is very shine bright but it's almost like a flashlight which is very bright. Oh I grab my shoes and coat but I never had a drink on a boat it just wouldn't float because of the goat. I go inside and sleep in bed which it was really red. Oh I wish to see daylight when the sun is very shine bright but it's almost like a flashlight which is very bright. When I go on that picnic it was cool with the guy named Rick. Oh yea that was cool. Oh I wish to see daylight when the sun is very shine bright but it's almost like a flashlight which is very bright. When I adventure and explore it seems that's not bored but when i go off the to the meadow I snore. Oh I wish to see daylight when the sun is very shine bright but it's almost like a flashlight which is very bright. So the colt looks at Snow Crystal in a happy way. "Wow that was awesome." Snow Crystal looks at the colt. "Really." The colt gets shy. "Well it looks she should get moving it's not that far." Snow Crystal looks at the colt. "Well hmm how far do we have to go through now." The colt gets depress on saying this. "Just have to pass through I think 20 miles and then were out. Unless you want to go to the Crystal Empire. That takes us longer." Snow Crystal ask if the colt has a plan. "Even if we don't have the supplies it's easier if we go to the shortest route as the fastest way out." The colt know where he's going. "Yea it is much simpler." Snow Crystal talks in general. "We should get going." The colt gets all sad a little bit as he feeling better. "Ok." Snow Crystal and the colt keep walking the path till the find a two path way. They choose the left and they keep going. Although the colt knows where she is going. The colt is unsure how further it will take them. "Were getting closer just a few more miles I think." Snow Crystal gets happy for fresh air. "Ok." As we both walk further we see stairs. We went up the stairs. Snow Crystal looks at the place. "This place is a wreck. It's very old." The colt looks at Snow. "Yea." Snow Crystal looks at the colt as if he is getting tired. "We should rest for tonight." The colt looks at Snow Crystal. "Yea. Walking all the way down here has made me tired." Snow Crystal and the colt walks up stairs to the main floor. The colt looks at Snow. "Lets get some water and something to eat before we go to bed." Snow Crystal went to the kitchen and see grains of wheat. Snow Crystal gives the colt wheat to eat and water bottle. Then we both went upstairs to the bedrooms. The colt looks at Snow Crystal with his eyes sparkles. "Before we go to bed. Can you tell a story?" Snow Crystal tucks in the colt. Snow Crystal is thinking of a story. "Yea why not." Snow Crystal tells the story. Once upon a time there was a rainbow outside of clouds dale it was cool. Then a pony happens to get very close to the rainbow but the pony saw a pot of gold. He took the gold and got a lot of magic from the gold but then he knew that something was following him. He ran but there was a small breezy telling him to wait. The pony stopped. "Why are you following me." The breezy looks at the pony. "That gold is a special gold that runs in my family for generations i need it back." The pony looks at the breezy. "Oh I didn't know it was yours." He gave all the gold bits back. But then the breezy gave 1 gold bit. The breezy rolled her eyes. "You can have this bit but remember it is a magical bit that gives you luck." The colt gets excited. "What happens next?" Snow Crystal continue the story. When the pony gets a lucky bit. "What is your name?" The breezy tells her name. "Rain Moi. What's yours?" The pony tells his name. "Chen Merna." Then they left went there ways and Chen Merna was lucky he got a mare name Lone Hill. Then they live happy ever after the end. Snow Crystal looked at the colt. "I think they had a few kids along the way but what happen to Rain Moi he went back to his culture. The colt went to sleep. Snow Crystal walks out of the room. Snow Crystal spoke to the A.I. "A.I are you there?" The A.I speaks. "Yes." Snow Crystal walks down stairs as and ask the A.I "Ok were finally out of that place." Snow Crystal goes outside to breath in air. Snow Crystal ask a question. “what time is it.” A.I tells the time. "It's 8:00 PM." Snow Crystal looks at the stars and constellations. Snow Crystal goes back inside the house. She ask the A.I I wonder what do I look like. The A.I told her. "You need to find a mirror." She walks down to the basement floor and uncover everything till she found a mirror. Snow Crystal finally found a mirror. She looks at herself. The A.I spoke. "You have red skin, your eyes are yellow, you have a yellow mane, and your tail is yellow." Snow Crystal ask the A.I "How old am I." The A.I spoke. "About 330 years old." Snow Crystal looks like she was shocked. "Really." The A.I laughs. "Yes but you were in that science container in a stasis so basically you froze your self in time." Snow Crystal gives the A.I a question. "Ok so how old am I if I was in a stasis and frozen in time to this timeline?" A.I said. "About the age of 10." Snow Crystal was shocked. "Wow that's a long from my original timeline." Snow Crystal goes up stairs. Then she was on the main floor then she went up stairs. She checks on the colt. Snow Crystal see the pony was still there. Snow Crystal goes into another bedroom and then takes off all the equipment off and goes to bed. The A.I spoke. "Are you going to read me a story too?" Snow Crystal looks at the A.I shackle on her right hoof. "But aren't you an A.I should you be telling me a story." The A.I laughs. "Mare goes first." Snow Crystal tells an A.I a short story but when she started a few words. The A.I was fast asleep. Snow Crystal was like really. Snow Crystal goes to sleep then dreams. Snow Crystal goes into a dream mode she was in a war with the changelings in the crystal mountains and then she fall off the cliff into the water then she found a cave then after that she went in the cave for shelter. Then the cave collapsed she turn and try to find a way out. Then she went deep in the cave and then she slip and slide down she saw this container and a weapon of some sorts then she got spooked and trip by a rock the container it opens up and she fell right in. Then she went into stasis with an oxygen mask. Then the water fills up then she thought she died. But then she wakes up and she had a nightmare. Book 1 Reborn of the Unknown Pony Chapter 3 The Crystal Golden Horseshoe The sun is rising up. Snow Crystal was trying to sleep but the window had put a shine to Snow Crystal eyes while she was sleeping. She woke up and then she was worrying that the colt maybe left. She went out of the bedroom down the hall and check if the colt is there. The colt is still sleeping. Snow Crystal whisper to the A.I. "What time is it." A.I whisper. "It's about 8:00 AM." Snow Crystal sits on the ground and close her eyes. The colt stretches and yawns then wakes up. Snow Crystal open her eyes. "Good morning." The colt was look at Snow Crystal strangely. "Did you sleep like that?" Snow Crystal giggles. "No there was another bed room." The colt looks at Snow Crystal with a smile. "Oh." Snow Crystal gets shy. "Well then Shall we go to the Crystal Empire together." The colt gets nervous. "Ok." Snow Crystal see that he wasn't excited but she notices that every time I get closer his face turns red. After they just got out of the house colt looks at Snow Crystal. "Well it's getting close to the end. What is your name?" Snow Crystal looks at the colt. "Snow Crystal. What's yours?" The colt gets embarrass. "My name is Stain Lash." Snow Crystal looks at Stain Lash as he blushes. "So do you know the way out of this part of this place." Stain Lash gets happy and smiles. "Yes I think. " Snow Crystal looks at Stain Lash. "Well let's go then your the lead leader." Stain Lash gets proud and the courage to lead to the Crystal Empire. "Ok." Stain Lash leads them out of the house. Snow Crystal gets confused. "Where are we?" Stain Lash gets surprised on how long she been in there. "Crystal Mountains." Snow Crystal looks at Stain Lash. "Where do you live?" Stain Lash smiles. "Crystal Empire but I left only because they were fighting over a golden crystal horse shoe model I still don't know the details on what it does." Snow Crystal get confused. "Really." Stain Lash looks confused. "I don't know any other details though on why they were obsess about it." Snow Crystal laughs. "Well I guess they should get over it by now." Stain Lash gets carious. "If you say so." Snow Crystal gets silly. "Well they got to share it right." Stain Lash gets serious. "It's something else more like high-class." Snow Crystal is confused. "I guess we'll find out." Snow and Stain went south-west for about 20 miles then they took a break and found a couple of berries to eat. The sky was sunny and it was 70 degrees outside. Snow Crystal and Stain Lash sing as pop music. Snow: Oh I love it out here then the cavern back there. Then I found a pony friend. Stain: All I found was trap there and didn't know what to do in there. But then I found a pony friend. Snow: Oh it's so wonderful when it's so good I feel like we finish with our food. Stain: It is so cool and the sheep are shedding their wool. Snow: Laughing and crying oh I wonder when there is adventure. Stain: Maybe there is more architecture or even literature. Snow: Oh I love it out here then the cavern back there. Then I found a pony friend. Stain: All I found was trap there and didn't know what to do in their. But then I found a pony friend. Snow/Stain: But we found each other now we know we are friends together. Were nothing but a big wire so it is time to go to the Crystal Empire. Stain Lash drink the last of the water bottle. We walk 20 miles south-west and saw a big bush with berries. We stop to take a break and we eat some berries and we grab some for the road trip. "Ten more miles till the factory." As Stain Lash see the factory a few more miles. As they walk 10 miles further they finally got to the factory and took a break. Snow Crystal gets confused. "It looks like it's been abandon." Stain Lash giggles and laughs. "It not abandon it's just old." Snow Crystal was very shocked. "Oh I see. Do they still use it?" Stain Lash is thinking. "Yea I think so." Snow Crystal and Stain Lash made it to the factory. But the factory's locked. Stain look down the road and can see the Crystal Empire. "We have 12 more miles to get to the city by then it will be at least 8 PM when we get there." Snow Crystal gets in tense. "Then we better get moving." They finally made it to the Crystal Empire. Snow Crystal looks sad. "Well it's better to go are separate ways now. You need to go to your parents I'm pretty sure they're worried. Stain looks sad. "Come with me please." Snow Crystal looks at stain and boops him. "I am going to see if I can stay at the Inn." Stain Lash gets emotional and looks at Snow Crystal. "But." Snow Crystal smiles and pets on his head. "Ok meet me at 9:00 Am in the Inn tomorrow." Stain Lash looks at Snow Crystal in an excited way. "Do you promise." Snow Crystal looks at Stain Lash with proud way like it was fierce. "You have my word." Stain Lash smiles. "Ok. I'll tell my mom what happened although she might freak out a bit." Snow Crystal laughs. "Well that is something well see you tomorrow then." Snow Crystal & Stain Lash said there goodbyes for now. Snow Crystal goes and find an Inn. Stain Lash goes back home and sees guards there. Stain goes to his house. Guards are asking his father. "What does he look like.? What age is he? What kind of mane does he have and what color?" The other Guard is asking his mother. "What is his name? What is his eye color? What color is his tail?" Stain Lash walks in. Mom & Dad I am right here. Stain's father looks upset. "Son where have you been your mom almost got a heart attack." Stain's mother looks at Stain with a serous look on her eye. "You're grounded Mr." Dad looks at me. "Where have you been?" In the most tempered voice. Stain looks like as if he's shamed. "I heard rumors about this place it was 42 miles northeast of the Crystal Empire." Stain's mother fainted. Stain look at the ground. "I made it to the crystal mountains. Then I trip and I slide down and went into the caverns and explored a few floors. After that I got lost and went down. Then after when thought I was going to die in the place like that a pony showed up. Snow Crystal is actually in the city now looking for a place to stay. Guard said. "Come on men we need to find this pony." Snow Crystal walks in at the Crystal Bane Inn. Bartender looks at this stranger earth pony. "Hello how can I help you stranger." Snow Crystal looks at the bartender. "Do you have any good meals dang I am starving." Bartender talks elegantly. "You should look at our menu." Snow Crystal looks at the menu. First Page. Appetizers.

"That will be 59 bits please." Snow Crystal gives 59 bits and then the tip of 20 bits. She then eats the squid and the hay fries. Snow Crystal ask the bartender. "So this means Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is the only alicorn." Bartender laughs. "Nope there is Princess Twilight Sparkle." Snow Crystal i'm shocked. "What? You mean that filly, she became Celestia student the last time I was there at Canterlot." Bartender was shocked. "Wait the last time you were there? Then that means you should have died a long time ago." Snow Crystal sense danger in her mind. "I have a bad feeling about this." Guards come in. One of the guard gives the most serious look on the bartender. "Snow Crystal we are here for you." Snow Crystal gets up off the chair. "I didn't do anything wrong please don't take me to prison." 2nd Guard looks at Snow Crystal from the door when Snow Crystal is at the table. "No ha ha ha. That's not what we're here for." Snow Crystal is in a bit of a panic. "If that so why do want me?" 1st Guard as a serious look. "It is very urgent you come with us." Snow Crystal is panicking. "I can't deny a guard then I guess I'm off to jail?" 2nd Guard looks at Snow Crystal. "No." The guard whacks Snow Crystal and she pass out. The guards carried her to Stain Lash house. The second guard look at the bartender. "Everything is under control bartender." Snow Crystal gets damage by the hit by 50 damage 150/200 HP left. While Snow Crystal passed out she had the most realism dream. Snow Crystal sees a lot of white all around her. Snow Crystal looks in at a strange place. "Is this another dream or is it about the afterlife?" Then a door suddenly appears. The door seems locked. A key came out of nowhere as it is levitating in front of her she grab it and use it on the door. She sees stairs that is a big spiral. At the end of the platform she looked down and see and endless staircase that leads to a pitch black of darkness. Snow Crystal goes down stairs. Meanwhile the guards finally got Snow Crystal to Stain Lash House. The first guard look at Stains's father. "Here we have Snow Crystal for you." Then Mr. Lash looked at the guards. "Thanks and she's a mare?" Mr. Lash yell at upstairs. " Stain get down here this instant." Stain came down stairs. Stain looked at Snow. "That is Snow Crystal." First guard spoke in a serious look. "It is about only 8 minutes after she got knocked out." Stain look at his father. "Let's wait till tomorrow I mean she could be tired after our travels getting back here." Mrs. Lash look at Stain. "Ok lets put her in the couch until she wakes up." Meanwhile Snow Crystal still goes down the stairs. Snow Crystal was thinking. "I wish my A.I was here to help me how long this staircase were." Meanwhile 8:00 AM in the morning. Stain Lash goes down stairs in a rush to get to Snow Crystal. Snow Crystal was still asleep. Stain Lash looks at her and waits. Few hours have past. Snow Crystal still going down the stairs and she looked up and it gets very hard to see where she started then she continues to walk down. Meanwhile Stain Lash open her eyes and got freaked out by a bright light glowing eyes. Stain screamed mom goes to the living room. Stain Lash looks at mom. "Is this what a pony eye's should look like. Mrs. Lash fainted. Mr. Lash goes to the living room. "What's going on?" Stain Lash open Snow Crystal eyes again to show his father. Mr. Lash looks at Stain. "Ok it looks like were taking her to the hospital." Stain Lash looks at mom. "What about mom?" Mr. Lash look at his son. "She's fine she only fainted." Mr. Lash put her wife on the couch. Mr. Lash and his son rushed over to the Crystal Hospital. The nurse looks at Mr. Lash. "I don't know what's wrong with the earth pony and I don't see any injuries. Maybe I should go with you to get you into the castle to get Shiny Armour he'll know what to do in the time like this." Guards looks at the nurse. "Halt who goes there." "It is the nurse let me in it's an emergency." The nurse looks shocked. The guards rolled there eyes. "You may go ahead." As they go into the castle they ran in there to the outside of the throne room of Shiny Armour. "It seems we might have guests Open the doors. As the ponies arrived. Nurse looked at Prince Shiny Armour with shock. "I think you can help us with this pony illness or somewhat." Shiny Armour takes a look. "I don't know any healing that can outmatched that. The best Healing I know is my wife and she's in Canterlot. I'll give you a free train pass to get you all there and i hope it isn't too late." Meanwhile Snow Crystal keeps going down the stairs. Snow Crystal gets tired. "I might take a few minutes to take a break and sits down." Snow Crystal sings in as lonely sad music. Oh I wish I knew where I was going. It is almost the same in the trap container with the winds aren't blowing. The fresh of air to breathe that fresh of air. Oh why do I get stuck I can't even see a clock. When I do the time has will be pass by. I can't go even to that rhyme it looks like i can't even dance to the side. Oh why did I have to get stuck in the Inn. I don't know if this is real air but might seem so thin. But why do I have to-be in here I wish I was out there. Oh I wish I was out there. Meanwhile the train to Canterlot was here they all got on including Shiny Armour. Shiny Armour was excited to see his wife. "It has been a while since I saw my wife about at least 10 years." Stain looks at the Prince Shiny Armour. "That's really sad not to see some one that is close to you for that long." Shiny Armour gets sad. "Yea I wish we could live back together again although it may not happened." They arrived at Canterlot. They run to the castle. 1st Canterlot Guards looks at the ponies. "Halt who goes there. Wait Shiny Armour. You may go ahead." 2nd Canterlot Guard looks at Prince Shiny Armour. "Sorry Only Shiny Armour may Proceed." Shiny Armour looks at the 2nd Canterlot Guard. "There with me." 2nd Canterlot Guards look at the ponies. "You all may go ahead." Princess Mi Amore Cadenza looks at a strange pony that she never seen for 10 years. "Who are you. Wait your Shiny Armour." Shiny Armour looks at Princess Mi Amore Cadenza. "Yes and you look pale." Princess Mi Amore Cadenza giggles. "Is that how you treat me with respect." Shiny Armour gets nervous. "No but sorry." Stain tells Shiny Armour. "I think you should kiss her." Mr. Lash looks at his son and glare at him. "That is not the right time young one. When we get home you're grounded for life." Shiny Armour looked at Mr. Lash in a anxious way. "I think your son is right." Shiny Armour kisses Princess Mi Amore Cadenza. Princess Mi Amore Cadenza returns to her natural color. Princess Mi Amore Cadenza looks at the ponies. "I feel a lot better now for some reason. You help me with love now I must return you a favor let me see what ya got. Hmm not any of my healing magics and do it. There is only one thing. We must go to the Princess nerd known as Princess Twilight Sparkle." Meanwhile Snow Crystal keeps going down stairs then after 400 steps she then stops and looked up and couldn't find where she started but then she walked and walked and finally she made it to the end of the stairs. She looks around and there was nothing she checked behind the stairs she found a door and she opens it. There it was the crystal golden horseshoe. Snow Crystal touches it and then something splendid happens a powerful magic goes around her. She gain wings then she gains a horn. The transformation is complete. Snow Crystal feels strange. "Now all I got to do is go back to the surface and get back into my body." As she said it in her mind. Meanwhile it was about dark outside and all the ponies went to Ponyville and stayed at the castle they were looking for twilight but haven't found her. They said it is best to wait and look for in the morning. 9:00 AM in the morning Snow Crystal try to fly but too weak then she gets tired and then sleeps. Meanwhile Stain Lash and Mr. Lash wakes up they went to look around. So they both looked around the castle and suddenly they see 2 weird looking ponies that had a purple hat and a blue mask in a weird-looking outfit. They both looked at the strange 2 ponies with a costume. "We are the Maredowells that protects Princess Twilight sparkle." First Maredowell look at the 2 ponies. "You are trespassing the castle." Second maredowell stared at the 2 ponies. "You'll be press with charges about 8000 bits." Stain check his pockets. "We don't have money." The first Maredowell laughs. "Then I must arrest you both for a tress pass crime." Princess Mi Amore Cadenza comes into action. "Halt in the name of the Crystal Empire and Canterlot I demand you to tell me where Princess Twilight Sparkle." Shiny Armour gets here late but made it and spoke. "You hide behind a mask it seems you look like criminals." The first maredowell looked in shock of both of the Crystal Empires. "Twilight Sparkle has left the castle darling." The second maredowell looks at the first maredowell. "They are looking for the princess this must be argent." The first maredowell takes off the mask. "I think I know where twilight is." Princess Mi Amore cadenza said. "Rarity." The second maredowell takes off the mask. "It's been 4 years since we seen her." Shiny Armour was shocked when the second mask was revealed. "Sweetie bell." Princess Mi Amore Cadenza was shocked. "Wow Sweetie Bell you grown a lot since the past 250 years or so." Shiny Armour look at the mares. "You mares should take a look at this please." Rarity is shocked by the elements of harmony could do something so cruel. "I never seen that before how long did it happen?" Stain looked at Rarity. "About 2 days and 5 hours." Mr. Lash look at the 2 mares. "We believe Princess Twilight Sparkle can figure it out." Rarity is looking at the weird earth pony. "Follow me I think I know where she is." Rarity calls. "Spike." Spike walked into the room as he rub his eyes. "Yes my darling?" "Settle up we are all going to the Everfree Forest." As Rarity gets excited. Sweetie Bell looked at Rarity. "Let me get this straight sister you think Princess Twilight is in the Everfree Forest." Rarity looked at Sweetie Bell. "In fact I do. She is always there reading the ancients books there hopefully she is still there. " Once they all got to the castle. A mysterious voice appeared. "Who enters my domain. I am one you most greatest fears the shadow pony." Shiny Armour looked at the castle. "We are looking for Princess Twilight Sparkle." Shadow pony is hidden in the shadows. "Your names are?" "I'm the Crystal Empire and Canterlot I am Princess Cadance." "I'm her wife known as Shiny Armour." "I'm the most beautiful of all ponies my name is Rarity." "I'm her daughter Sweetie Bell." "I'm Stain Lash." "I'm his father Mr. Lash." Shadow Pony comes out of the shadows. "Did you say Princess Cadance and Shiny Armour. I thought you two were busy to see me." Princess Twilight Sparkle comes out of the shadows. Princess Cadance looks at Twilight. "Here you should take a look at this." "Let me take a look. I never read anything about this happening but I think I know who can help me though the other ponies that I trust in years I found a spell to bring their souls plus what's so hard about the spell when it is use for emergency reasons. We must awaken Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Apple Jack, Fluttershy. We must go back to where we began in ponyville. We have to get to ponyville." They get to the graveyard of Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie pie, and Apple Jack tombstones. Twilight Sparkle gets intense. "Ok here goes nothing. This is so exciting." Spike looks at Twilight Sparkle. "Are you always excited?" Twilight looks at Spike. "Yes Spike." "You haven't changed a bit." As Spike smiles. Twilight looks at Spike. "Did you bring my check list." Spike check his pockets. "Nope I think you can wing it." Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at the graves. "Spike! Well it's too late we have no choice but to do the unthinkable." Twilight use magic over the tombstones. Rainbow Dash yawns. "Who dares corrupt in my peace sleep." Pinkie Pie gets angry. "Who dare to throw a party without me." Fluttershy screams. "I am a ghost." Fluttershy screams again. Apple Jack gets frustrated. "What all that racket? Granny Smith are you listen to me? Apple Bloom don't eat those pies they're not good for your health." Twilight screams. "Enough. Friends I need your help once more." Rainbow Dash looks at Princess Twilight Sparkle. "Come on egg head your always have it covered." Pinkie Pie gets very angry. "What is going on twilight I am having fun I get unlimited chocolate rain in the afterlife. This better be worth my while." Fluttershy shivers. Apple Jack looks at the ponies. "What do you need sugar cube?" Rarity smiles. "It's been a while my friends it's me Rarity." Rainbow Dash laughs "You haven't died yet?" Pinkie Pie talking to her dead alligator. "You never invited me to your birthday party you owe me." Fluttershy gets very shy. "What's going on why did you bring us back from the dead Princess Twilight Sparkle?" Apple Jack looks serious. "It must be very important." Princess Twilight Sparkle open Snow Crystal eyes. Apple Jack looks at the unknown earth pony. "Were dead for a while now Princess Twilight Sparkle but we have no clue on what's wrong with the elements of harmony done to her." Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at Snow Crystal. "Elements of Harmony shouldn't be doing that." Princess Twilight Sparkle uses the Elements of harmony along with her friends. It doesn't work. Pinkie Pie was unsure. "That was at least unexpected." Apple Jack is confused. "Maybe there is away but it might have to do with balance." Rainbow Dash speaks in an epic way. "Elements of harmony has wonderful things and many things although it is fate that brought us together. So to bring her back it has to do with loyal and fate." Pinkie Pie giggles. "Elements of harmony is where the unexpected. So it also have to do with the unexpected." Fluttershy gets nervous. "Elements of harmony has a bit of kind things. So it's with great kindness. Apple Jack speaks as a strong heart and courage. "Elements of harmony must have honesty twilight." Rarity speak in an elegant way. "Elements of harmony is quite generosity. So it has generous." Princess Twilight Sparkle is thinking. "Elements of harmony is also magic. So it must have magic." Rarity giggles. "Laughs." Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at Rarity. "Why are you laughing Rarity." Rarity is thinking. "Is it obvious. Stain has to kiss her because it's her true love." Princess Twilight Sparkle is very confused. "What?" Rarity knows knowledge as she is thinking. "Come to think about it its romance. It has fate, unexpected, kindness, honesty, generosity, then you can say the magic happens." Rainbow Dash looks at Twilight. "Twilight have you tried that?" Pinkie Pie is thinking. "That is really expected in a romance." Fluttershy speaks in a calm voice. "The kiss is true kindness with a sweet soft touch." Apple Jack speaks in a calm voice. "It is how honesty truly feels." Meanwhile Snow Crystal walks out of the room back to the stairs case but the stairs were gone she looks at the ground but she sees 6 alicorns and a weird-looking goat head with a snake body type thing that was in the middle. She went to touch it and the floor went all the way up to the top back to the door she first used to get there. Meanwhile Princess Twilight Sparkle . "I guess it is worth a shot but which pony would help her?" Stain Lash speaks in heroic. "I guess I don't have a choice I'm the only pony who knows her besides she was with me and save me I guess I have to return a favor." Mr. Lash speaks in crazy talk nonsense. "That's outrageous even if it work how can we tell?" Princess Mi Amore Cadenza looks at Mr. Lash. "We don't but it might work." Meanwhile Snow Crystal open the door and went back outside but then the door behind her disappears. But she didn't know how to open the other door to get back to her body. After stain goes up to Snow Crystal body he said. "Snow Crystal I know we didn't know each other but you save me from the that weird place and now I am here to save you." Snow Crystal hears a voice. Stain looks at Snow Crystal. "I think you're nice and you are beautiful." Pinkie Pie gets too excited. "Just kiss her already." Rarity looks at Pinkie Pie. "Hush Pinkie Pie you can't rush romance." Stain gets closer to Snow Crystal. "I hope you love me and you love me back." Stain close his eyes and kiss Snow Crystal. Snow Crystal wraps her hoofs around Stain then she open her eyes. Snow Crystal giggles. "I, I guess it is destiny that binds us together after all." Snow Crystal then went to the glowing eyes thing and spread a rainbow across equestria. The ghost ponies went back to their bodies and came out from the grave. As Spike scream Zombie ponies. Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Apple Jack were old but then another rainbow appear and then everyone turn a lot younger in there 20 years of age. Snow Crystal looks at Twilight. "Twilight you need to bring back someone." Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at Snow Crystal. "Who? I hope your not saying discord the master of chaos." Snow Crystal looks at Princess Twilight eyes. "He is the key to winning the future wars against the changelings, King Sombra and Tirek." Princess Twilight Sparkle is unsure. "But." Princess Celestia comes down. Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at Princess Celestia. "Is that Princess Celestia when she was younger." Princess Luna comes down as well. Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at Princess Luna. "Luna too." Princess Celestia looks at Princess Twilight. "It is time Princess Twilight Sparkle that I step down from my kingdom." Princess Luna laughs. "I was thinking the same thing." Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at Princess Luna. "What why? Princess Luna speaks to the ponies. "There is a new alicorn in equestria." Princess Twilight Sparkle was shocked. "Wait what?" Princess Celestia looks at Snow Crystal. "She is the one that brought us to life. Go look at her now she has wings and a horn it seems she is another princess that's meant to rule." Shiny Armour looks at Princess Celestia. "If that is so then who is going to rule Canterlot." Princess Luna looks at Shiny Armour. "It shall be this pony known as Snow Crystal." Princess Mi Amore Cadenza looks at Princess Luna and Princess Celestia. "So what will you do?" Princess Celestia closed her eyes and spoke. "We will open our kingdom from the Everfree Forest." Princess Luna looks at Princess Twilight and smiles. "After you release Discord." Princess Twilight Sparkle goes to the Everfree Forest castle and release Discord outside the castle. Discord looks at Princess Twilight. "Laughs. Hello Princess Twilight I see you awaken me for the 2nd time now." Princess Celestia walks in saying. "Hello discord." Discord is extreme shocked that Princess Celestia is alive. "I thought you died." Princess Celestia looks at Discord in a cute way. "Yes but I was reborn back to life." Discord looks at Princess Celestia. "I know I give a lot of ponies a hard time but. Will you marry me." Princess Celestia smiles. "Yes." Princess Twilight Sparkle is shocked. "I guess love is very unexpected." Discord looks at Princess Twilight. "Don't you have your Prince waiting for you at your castle?" Princess Twilight Sparkle runs to the Magic castle she sees her stallion Flash Sentry. Princess Twilight sparkle runs to the Magic castle she see her stallion Flash Sentry. Princess Mi Amore Cadenza with excitement. "Me and my stallion are going to head back to the Crystal Empire." Princess Luna looks at the ponies. "I am going to make sure discord doesn't become evil so I guess I am going to company my sister for the new future." Snow Crystal looks at Princess Twilight. "It seems we're meant to go to Canterlot Princess Twilight Sparkle." Mr. Lash looks at the ponies. "I guess I'll have to tell my wife although she would faint when she hears her son is a prince now. It seems I am going back to the Crystal Empire." Princess Snow looks at Stain. "No problem. We'll Stain are you ready." Stain looks at Princess Snow. "Yes." Princess Snow close her eyes. "I am sure there happy. Pinkie Pie get to see Cheese Sandwich. Apple Jack gets Silver Shill. Rarity gets Spike. Rainbow Dash gets Soarin. Fluttershy gets Silverwing, and most of all Princess Twilight Sparkle gets her Flash Sentry." Prince Stain laughs. "Don't forget that Princess Celestia has Discord and Princess Cadance has Shiny Armour, Sweetie Bell has Button Mash, Apple Bloom has Pipsqueak, and Scootaloo has Rumble." Princess Snow giggles. "Well it is time." Prince Stain smiles. "How about another kiss." Princess Snow laughs. "Ok." Princess Snow and Prince Stain took the train to Canterlot. Book 1 Reborn of the Unknown Pony Chapter 4 Secrets When Princess Snow Crystal and Prince Stain Lash gets on the train. They see a few passengers on the train. They go to the left to the next cart of the train and it was empty. The prince and the princess sit together while the train takes them to Canterlot. Stain cuddles Princess Snow. "So you're a Princess now." Princess Snow is getting cuddle by Stain the future Prince. "Yes and you're the future prince who isn't an alicorn." Stain had a question. "What was back there?" Princess Snow gets confused. "Back where?" Stain spoke with wonders. "Do you remember the time where we first met." Princess Snow looks at Stain. "Yes. Why are you asking such things?" Stain still wondering. "Well there was a room to the left that i haven't explored yet. I was wondering if there was any treasure?" Princess Snow laughs. "A few that I can think of." Princess Snow gives the rat some cheese. Stain had a question. "Well How many floors did that place have?" Princess Snow was getting gloomy. "About 57 BF." Stain gets excited. "Cool I can't wait to go back there to find out what you were doing there." Princess Snow laughs. "Trust me you don't want to go back there." Stain gives her this look. "Well." Princess Snow looks very serious. "Its way too dangerous with lots of traps. I barely made it out." Stain is unsure. "Traps?" Princess Snow smiles. "It's better to forget that place. We both have a long journey ahead of us." Stain is thinking way to hard. "If you say so." Princess Snow kiss Stain. Stain kissed Princess Snow. The train enters the tunnel. Stain gets a little scared and hugs Princess Snow. Princess Snow smiles. "It's ok Stain many ponies are always scared of something." Stain leans on Snow Crystal. He now notice that the Princess feels so warm like his mom. Then Stain closed his eyes and sleeps. Princess Snow giggles and said in her mind. "No matter how we ended up together you seem so cute when you're asleep." Princess Snow noticed that Stain feels warm. Then a 3 hours later the train stops at Canterlot and it was . They both go out of the train there was like no ponies or pegasus or unicorns around. Stain looks at Princess Snow. "We need to go this way Princess Luna wants you to go to the this well shaft." Princess Snow is confused. "Why?" Stain tries to explain. "Because Princess Celestia and Princess Luna doesn't want the enemy to know there is another alicorn." Princess Snow is confused. "Where are all the ponies and pegasus and unicorns?" Stain knows something and tells her to Princess Snow. "Princess Twilight Sparkle is distracting them." Princess Snow looks at Stain."What about the royal guards?" Stain laughs. "No one goes in the castle it's been abandoned after the Princess Celestia and Princess Luna died." Princess Snow looks at the castle. "But they back to life does anyone know that besides the us and Ponyville." Stain looks worried. "Everypony knows and can see them." Princess Snow figures it out. "Oh ok." Stain grab her hoof. "I'll tell you the rest latter now we got to get there." Stain and Princess Snow goes to the well. Princess Snow looks at the well. "Well so what now?" Stain looks worried. "Go down there." Princess Snow gets a little nervous. "Down there?" Princess Snow gives Stain four thousand bits. "Here goes nothing." As Princess Snow Crystal dives in the well shaft. There was a big stream of water down there and it was hard to tell how deep it was. As Princess Snow still drop out of the well shaft she is still dropping at a fast rate of gravity. She close her eyes and spread her wings then she glides to the platform. Stain goes to the markets to get food supplies and bottles of water. He also spends the rest of the money for a pony cloak and a hat to make Princess Snow to hide her horn and wings. Stain goes back to the well shaft and made sure no pony was looking or following him. He goes down the well in a faster rate. He drops out of the well shaft. Stain looks down at the well shaft. "Hey Snow Crystal catch the supplies." Stain throw the supplies at Princess Snow. Stain use the rope then climbs down. Stain keeps going down, the rope is getting moisture from the water. Stain made it out of the well shaft but then he slipped and fell in the water. The water current was going 70 MPH. Stain tries to paddle but the current is too strong. So he grab and edge but he couldn't hold for very long. Stain panics. "Princess Snow help." Princess Snow looks at Stain. "I'll be right there." Princess Snow equipped the other package of supplies. Then runs to the destination. As Princess Snow runs forward then Stain gets stuck on a rock but not for long after he slipped from moss. Stain flows down the stream and get stuck on a branch. While Princess Snow runs as fast as she could to get there. While she just got there the branch broke. Stain screams. "Hurry Snow." Princess Snow is getting tried of running. "It's these wings that are slowing me down and the weight carry." As Princess Snow slow down she took a breather. While Stain Lash goes down the stream. Then out of nowhere a unicorn showed up and used magic to get him out of there. As the unicorn put stain to safety she ask. " Who are you and what are you doing down here. I don't think we met before." Stain tries to get a glimpse of the unicorn face. " Nope I never saw you before." Princess Snow catches finally catches up. The unicorn looks at the two ponies. " Ah I see you must the be the new alicorn that twilight mentioned in the book. Although your face looks familiar. " Princess Snow is unsure. "Who are you?" The unicorn takes off the hood. "I'm Sunset Shimmer." Stain was shocked. "Wait so the stories are true?" Sunset Shimmer looks at Stain. "Yes the stories are true. I betrayed Princess Celestia and took a dark path. I stole Twilight crown once." Snow looks at Sunset Shimmer. "But how did you know there was a crown in the first place?" Sunset Shimmer tells a story. "I went back to equestria on the full moon after I return I sense 3 alicorn powers Luna, Celestia and then a strange unknown alicorn. I finally knew her name when twilight went to the human world. Then I almost succeed my evil plans to conquer equestria. Then Twilight Sparkle had stopped me and then we became friends. Then I wrote stuff in the book to let her know what I learn about friendship in the human world. Then the sirens appeared known as the dazzlings they were trying to rule over the human world with music spells then the 7th elements of harmony appeared. Then for long the black hole was rising because I saw my human form. So I took the dazzlings and myself to equestria although it wasn't easy I had to make sure it was night time so Princess Twilight didn't know. I had to make sure they stay silence. So we got out of the castle the sirens escaped but no word from them not sure what they're doing but maybe another evil plan or so. Did I tell Twilight and her friends nope." Stain gets intense. "Wow that is wicked." Princess Snow looks at Sunset Shimmer. "Are you going to search for them?" Sunset Shimmer worries. "No I'm not sure where they went. If I did tell twilight well I would be doomed. That is why I need you to keep it a secret." Stain gets excited. "Ok so where are we going next." Sunset Shimmer tells where we heading. "We are going to the Canterlot caves." Princess Snow is thinking. "Are you talking to the banish place where Celestia banish ponies." Sunset Shimmer gets a little nervous. "Yea kinda but it's been awhile since she has band ponies to that place so it's now a short cut to the castle to from the well." So the three ponies walk to the cavern and they have walk for a half an hour. Sunset Shimmer gets a plan ready. "Ok this is it. This is where we get to the garden. But once we get up there we need to disguise our self's in secret." Princess Snow is unsure. "Why disguise our self's in secret?" Sunset Shimmer explains. " It is because this is a secret mission to get you to the castle unnoticed." Stain is asking a question. "But why?" Sunset Shimmer looks at both of them. "You're on the hit list." Stain is shocked. "Hit list?" Sunset Shimmer looks looks worried for both ponies. "It's either live or death. Not only that Snow Crystal has upset the balance on equestria." Stain is confused. "Upset the balance how?" Sunset Shimmer boops Snow Crystal. "Well you brought bounty hunters to life." Snow Crystal feels terrible. "That is a bad thing oh no does Princess Twilight know about this." Sunset Shimmer cheers Princess Snow. "Yes I wrote it in the book she carries that with her now days." Snow Crystal is unsure. "Does Princess Celestia know or Princess Luna know?" Sunset Shimmer looks at the ponies. "Princess Luna already told Princess Celestia by now. Ok where here. I need you to put these new cloaks on. I have a special cloths for you Snow. Wear this Snow it will hide your wings and horn while we go into the castle. But before we are going to wait a few hours till it dies down a bit we will go at midnight where the midnight guards will be expecting us." Stain laughs. "It seems were fugitives." Meanwhile at the villain hideout. Unicorn 1 laughs. "Well now so I heard rumors that there is 5th alicorn in equestria." Earth Pony 1 gets obvious. "Well so it would seem." Earth Pony General 1 is very aggressive. "Well I am sick of waiting we should attack now when the time is right on our side." Pegasus General 2 looks at the ponies. "Let's not be too hasty now that we are never going to get to the elements of surprise when pinkie pie knows our every move." Pegasus General 1 figuring out plans. "We would've look at ahead anyway no matter if we attack now it will always be 50% chance if we succeed." Earth Pony General 2 is thinking of a plan. "Well we could hit the Crystal Empire where it's good far away from the magic kingdom." The main admiral said. "Look I think we should attack the Magic Kingdom so we can destroy the magics. All in good favors do say I." Unicorn 1, Earth Pony General 1, Pegasus General 1, Pegasus General 2, and Earth Pony General 2 said. "I." The main admiral laughs. "Well then it's settled I think I let you handle this Pegasus General 2. While we make plans for Canterlot." Meanwhile in the Everfree castle. Princess Celestia giggles. "That was fun discord we shall do it again if we live long enough." Discord laughs. "Of course my dear." Princess Luna knocks on the door. Luna speaks in the royal canterlot voice. "Are you done with that I can hear you everywhere in the castle." Princess Celestia gets embarrassed. "Oh." Then she giggles. Meanwhile in the Magic Kingdom Castle. Flash Sentry, Twilight, Pinkie Pie, Cheese Sandwich, Rarity, Spike, Apple Jack, Silver Shills, Fluttershy, Silverwing, Rainbow Dash, Sorain. Flash Sentry is the first to speak during the meeting. "So Snow Crystal is now a new alicorn." Princess Twilight looks at the ponies. "True but I am not sure if she is a pony all we know that she could have come from the mirror." Rainbow Dash is unsure. "Well it's clearly that she is one of us right?" Apple Jack is thinking. "I honestly think we should trust her because she's an alicorn." Rarity looks at Apple Jack. "Apple Jack. You have to think does she want power to rule over us? Alicorns are the most powerful creatures that use magic more likely powerful magic. For all we know she could end up like Nightmare Moon the princess of darkness." Silver Shills is thinking. "Well it is that time where we all have to decide to where we are going through this plan or not." Silverwing looks at the ponies. "I hope we have a plan because we need a plan to get things over with the enemy." Sorain looks fierce. "Ok so we have to figure out who's the leader of the evil villains. Princess Twilight looks at the ponies. "Enough we have to think this over and by all means we have to use strategy and figure out who's behind this attack." Rainbow Dash gets serious. "Well were all ears Twilight so make it quick and make it 100% cooler." Princess Twilight gets gloomy. "Look friends, we have been through a lot we should take a break." Apple Jack spoke like a true southern speech. "It is the honest truth that we are in danger evil never rest." Pinkie Pie laughs. "Will we have a party after this when it is finished because my brain hurts just thinking about it that we may not make it." Rainbow Dash looks at the ponies. "We never lose a battle. We save equestria a lot of times in the past. I'm sure we will make it." Pinkie Pie laughs. "It hasn't been seen yet so it's to be unexpected that we encounter in the future." Spike looks at Princess Twilight. "Are you sure were ready?" Princess Twilight spoke as normal Twilight. "Just give me the check list and we should be fine. Right?" Everypony looks at one another. Book 1 Reborn of the Unknown Pony Chapter 5 Pick a Bed in the Castle 12:30 AM on August 8th Princess Twilight gets very tired. "It is time to sleep we can't think in this condition." Apple Jack looks at the ponies. "Yes I believe so were all very tired." Rarity looks at Spike. "Well Spike it's time to get our beauty sleep." Fluttershy looks at Princess Twilight. "It's too far to go back home I guess I'll sleep here then." "That is the same for me I'll stay here since it's a long way home." As Apple Jack looks at Princess Twilight. "I need the exercise too much chatting." As Rainbow Dash Fly's home with Sorain. Twilight Sparkle spoke very unclear and she coughs. "We will finish this meeting later. Everyone you are now dismissed." Meanwhile in Canterlot. "Ok that's our cue." As Sunset Shimmer whispers. Stain looks at Sunset Shimmer. "Is it safe?" Princess Snow looks very confused. "Why do we have to keep this a secret again?" Sunset Shimmer is thinking. "I'll tell you when we get in the castle." Princess Snow looks at Sunset Shimmer. "Ok. I just hope you're telling the truth." All 3 ponies goes to the first guard. Sunset Shimmer whisper. "It's me the past pony password 345682." Guard whisper. "If you say so. But who are they." Sunset Shimmer whisper. "It's not of your concern guard. My students want to know about magic in person." Guard whisper. "All right I'll let them through." Princess Snow spoke as if she really wants to know. "Ok we made it. Now I really wants some answers." Sunset Shimmer looks at Princess Snow. "Keep it down you don't want them to hear us. What do want to know?" Princess Snow whispers. "Well I was wondering how you know where we were?" Sunset Shimmer looks frustrated. "One you were moving fast, second you have a lot of magic like Twilight, and third is that when I saw you were an alicorn it means you were heading to the castle without a trace just as Twilight Sparkle had planned. She knew I was at equestria when I returned because of her alicorn magic. It can pick up any ponies magic." Stain laughs quietly . "Sounds cool." Princess Snow looks at a wall. "Ok." Sunset Shimmer looks at a picture. "We should start your magic training tomorrow as well. Every alicorn must learn the basic magics and stuff. Just for when if they need it." Snow Crystal is sure of her self. "If you say so then it's decided. We start tomorrow." Sunset Shimmer asked. "Yes but now I've a question for you." Stain is unsure. "Is it about the ponies coming back to life?" Princess Snow is unsure. "Is it about how manage to transform to an alicorn?" Sunset Shimmer laughs. "No I was just asking what bedroom you want to sleep in for the rest of your life that's all really." Princess Snow giggles. "Oh." Stain is shocked. "Really is that all? Dang that is also a hard question. What room should we take?" Sunset Shimmer laughs. "Look I sleep in the basement in the crystal caves." Stain looks at Sunset Shimmer. "What are you serious?" Sunset Shimmer looks tired. "Yea why not." Princess Snow is giving orders. "I'm an alicorn and I order you to sleep in Princess Celestia's room." Sunset Shimmer laughs. "Wait what." Princess Snow is giving orders. "I order you to sleep in Princess Celestia's room." Sunset Shimmer is unsure. "Your kidding right. I'm not sure if I have the honor to go to sleep in a high royal sleeping spot." Princess Snow looks at Sunset Shimmer. "What ever you did in the past is gone your new life is arriving soon and very soon I can tell just looking at you." Sunset Shimmer looks kinda down. "I betrayed Celestia, I took twilight's crown, I took Flash sentry feelings from the human world to like me and use him." Princess Snow smiles. "But you honor us by saving my boyfriend which counts as one point, You saved both worlds equestria and the human world from the sirens ponies which count as two points because you saved both worlds, and then you saved the human world from ending up in a black hole which is one point. So pretty much your honor is crystal clear." Sunset Shimmer is unsure. "You think so." Stain is confident on the decision. "Yes I'm sure." Princess Snow smiles. "I'm positive that you have gain your honor back in full. Plus you're going to help me with magic anyway so should I go on?" Sunset Shimmer finally agrees. "Alright you made your point. Just let me grab my stuff from the crystal caves and put it in the library." Princess Snow is going to explore. "Good. Stain help her when I go explore the castle." Stain goes with Sunset Shimmer. "Alright let's do this." Snow Crystal explore the castle. Meanwhile "Stain I was thinking." As Sunset Shimmer walking down the stairs. Stain is excited to see the crystal caves. "Yea what is it?" Sunset Shimmer ask a question. "How did you two meet?" "Well. We meet at the abandoned mine shaft north-east of the crystal empire. Then we went to a few castles, then we went on the train and then well you know the rest." As Stain walks down the stairs with Sunset Shimmer. "Wow what a dangerous adventure you have there." As Sunset Shimmer and Stain finish the staircase. Sunset Shimmer tells him. "Ok were here." Sunset Shimmer open the bag. "This is a neat trick for magic." Sunset Shimmer use magic to turn every object smaller and she use levitation spell to put it in the bag. "It seems were finished then." As Sunset Shimmer pick up the package. Stain open his eyes. "Wow are you going to teach Snow Crystal that trick." Sunset Shimmer looked at Stain and smiles. "Eventually. Let's head back up to the castle." Meanwhile Snow Crystal finally explore all the upstairs and then she went down stairs. Few minutes later Sunset Shimmer and stain were ready to go to sleep. Stain Lash went with Snow Crystal to their room while Sunset shimmer went to her room. Meanwhile Luna's room at 3 AM in the morning on August 9th. Stain looks nervous. "There is only one big bed in the room." Princess Snow is excited. "Yea which means we get to sleep together this time." Stain is blushing, shy and nervous because it's his first time sleeping with a mare. They both got up on the bed. Snow had a few issues with the wings but then stain message her back to make it relax instead of tense. Then they both fall asleep. Meanwhile Celestia's room at 3:25 AM in the morning. Sunset Shimmer prays. "Please forgive me for using your royal bed. Please don't blame me blame the new alicorn." Sunset Shimmer gets into the royal bed and sleeps. Meanwhile in Stain's dream. Stain look at is left but it was white. Stain look at his right but it was white. Stain looked up and he saw stars. Stain looked down and saw a waterfall. As Stain looks down. "Uh oh." Stain dropped 35 feet in the air and then hit the water as a speed of 1.101 Miles per hour. Stain hits the water on his back and went 3 meters underwater. He saw Snow Crystal. As Snow Crystal open her eyes it was glowing bright white. Stain quickly wakes up from the nightmare and looks to his right. He thought. "I really wonder what Snow Crystal is dreaming." Princess Snow turns her head and she was still sleeping. "Stain what are you doing? No wait don't make me drink that you're not old enough to make me drink that. No don't do it. I am not ready to have kids yet." Stain open his mouth as Snow Crystal dreams. Stain thinks. "I wonder what Sunset Shimmer is dreaming hopefully it isn't this." Meanwhile in Sunset Shimmer's dream. "Sunset Shimmer why did you betray us." As Princess Celestia cries. "Why are you in the royal bed when you're not even a Princess." As Princess Twilight looks at Sunset Shimmer. "To be honest why didn't you help us during the changelings attack?" As Apple Jack gives Sunset Shimmer the mean looks. "Where is your loyalty when discord tried to destroy us again." As Rainbow Dash looks sadly for his lost with his pet turtle. "I'm your friend how come I didn't get a present from you?" As Rarity cries. "What are you hiding from me? Are you a spy?" As Pinkie Pie looks at Sunset Shimmer with a evil look. Book 1 Reborn of the Unknown Pony CH 6 Food in our Bellies Year 2315, August 9th 10:00 AM. Stain wakes up then he stretches and then yawns. Stain Went down stairs to the kitchen and he saw Sunset Shimmer. "Ah. Stain did you get any sleep?" As Sunset Shimmer yawn and stretches. Stain feels very worried. "Please don't ask." Sunset Shimmer looks at Stain and wonder what was bothering him. Stain was given pancakes, sausage, bacon, and waffles. Stain looks at the strange food. "What is this?" It's all American food from the human world it really taste good once you taste it. You might scream for more." As Sunset Shimmer laughs. Stain gets excited. "American food from the human world. Wow it smells good. How do they cook this?" "They steal eggs from chickens, they use flour and water to make the dough and make pancake batter, the bacon and sausage is another story I'll have to tell you later when you're older." As Sunset Shimmer cooks more food. "Oh I see it seems something good or bad right?" As Stain looks at Sunset Shimmer in a weird way. "Well you could say that Fluttershy wouldn't approve." As Sunset Shimmer thinking about it. "Oh I should have been a vegetarian from now on." As Stain looks at the clean plate. Sunset Shimmer laughs. "You need meat to get stronger so you can protect Snow Crystal." "Oh it's so hard to choose." As Stain tries to decide. Snow Crystal wakes up and smells the food from the bedroom. She close her eyes and levitates on auto pilot to the food as she smells it to the kitchen. "Good Morning Princess Snow." As Sunset Shimmer looks at Princess Snow. Princess Snow is still sleeping levitating. Then the sun shines on Snow Crystal's eyes and then she open her eyes. "Hello." Stain laughs. "You know you're levitating right." Snow Crystal is shocked. "What?" Princess Snow fells down on her nuzzle first then a belly flop on the floor. Stain gets worried. "So Snow Crystal did you have a nightmare last night?" Snow Crystal looks at Stain. "Yes how did you know?" "Is it about..." Stain whisper in Snow Crystal ears. Snow Crystal is shocked. "How did you know I was dreaming about that." Stain looks at Princess Snow. "You talk in your sleep." Snow Crystal gets embarrass. "Wow do you think I was being weird last night?" Stain looks worried. "Yea a little." Sunset Shimmer laughs. "Wow Princess Snow had a dream on Stain." Princess Snow whisper to Sunset Shimmer. Sunset Shimmer open her mouth. "Oh wow I didn't know it would go that far." Sunset Shimmer looks at Princess Snow in a weird way. "Is there anything you want to eat Princess Snow?" Princess Snow is nervous. "Whats on the menu?" "Pancakes, eggs and waffles are left." As Sunset Shimmer explain the leftovers. "I'll take Pancakes and waffles. I don't think my stomach can handle eggs only because on what happened last night." As Princess Snow almost started to cry. "Ok. Pancakes and waffles for the Princess Snow." As Sunset Shimmer is still was wonder what is going wrong with her head today. Princess Snow receives food on the plate then she chows down on the food like it was no day tomorrow. Meanwhile at the Magic Kingdom. Princess Twilight Sparkle confronts the meeting again. Pinkie Pie looks at Princess Twilight. "Can we get something to eat?" Rainbow Dash laughs. "You're always hungry." Princess Twilight Sparkle looks at Pinkie Pie. "Make it quick Pinkie Pie." Meanwhile at Canterlot. "Well I'm stuffed with food. So what was the crystal caverns were use for anyway." As Stain wonders. "Well it was for evil villains that were so evil." As Sunset Shimmer remembers on the tragedy that was inflicted on her during in the human world. "Really." As Stain gets interested. Sunset Shimmer eats some eggs. "Yea it was for this one pony but we don't even know if he lives or not." Stain gets intense. "So he might be still out there." Sunset Shimmer gets worried. "Actually it could be a she. Well we don't even know what the pony looks like or even gender wise either." Princess Snow looks at the ponies. "It is us to find this pony before it's to late." "What would you know anything about the pony?" As Sunset Shimmer glance at Princess Snow. Princess Snow laughs. "Have you ever heard of the pony of shadows?" Sunset Shimmer is unsure. "Only rumors that it was Princess luna shadow." "Wrong that didn't happened at all." As Snow Crystal knew she was there. "Hades, Zeus brother created the pony of shadows and Hades order it to attack the planet. The pony of shadows started out by taking control of Princess Luna to make a solar eclipse and change Princess Luna to a dark alicorn known as Nightmare Moon. As Princess Celestia took the elements of harmony and send her to the moon to fight him in a 1000 year duel it ended up as a draw as Twilight Sparkle use the elements of harmony after 1,000 years when Princess Luna returns and the pony of shadows escaped when Twilight uses the elements of harmony." As Princess Snow tells a story. Sunset Shimmer looks at Princess Snow. "Wait let me get this straight how would you know." "This little diary tells all. I found this in Princess Celestia restricted library in the star swirl the bearded wing." Sunset Shimmer is shocked. "I don't know what is worse bringing the dazzles here to equestria or that." "We must tell Princess Celestia that Princess Luna was frame. "As Princess Snow is confident." Meanwhile in the magic kingdom. "Ok Pinkie it's time to start the meeting." Looks at Princess Twilight. "Ok." Pinkie Pie brings out 18 tea cups Rainbow Dash is confused. "There is only 10 of us why 8 more tea cups?" Pinkie Pie gets excited. "Were having guests." Meanwhile in the Everfree Forest Castle. Discord opens the door to the magic kingdom while Princess Luna and Princess Celestia follows. All three went through the door. Princess Twilight is shocked. "Discord what are you doing here?" Discord speaks very loud. "I call a Summit." Everyone looked at discord. Discord laughs. "Why is everyone looking at me. Oh right then." Discord made 2 more doors and grabbed Princess Cadance and Shining Armour. The other door leads to Canterlot castle. Meanwhile in Canterlot castle. Sunset Shimmer sees a door in the kitchen. Stain screams of terror. Princess Snow runs to the kitchen. Discord laughs. "Why hello I believe this is our first time we met Princess Snow and future Prince Stain if he decides to marry her."Stain gets amazed. "Wow a door that leads to a shortcut to the magic kingdom." "Come on in were having a summit and you're invited." laughs Discord. All three ponies went through the door. "First thing first. I like to show evidence that Princess Luna was frame by using the solar eclipse and turning herself into Nightmare Moon." As Princess Snow looks at the ponies. Book 1 Reborn of the Unknown pony CH 7 The Summit 11 AM Princess Luna is shocked. "Wait I'm sorry you said the shadow pony?" Snow Crystal looks at Princess Luna very serious. "Yes." Princess Luna gets worried. "But he is my boyfriend he wouldn't betray me." Everyone looked at Princess Luna. Princess Twilight is unsure. "Is the pony of shadows really that scary and real?" Apple Jack screamed and so did Rainbow Dash. Apple Jack is worried. "I thought it was just rumor." Rainbow Dash shivers in fear. "I thought it was only Princess Luna's magic that set it off." Princess Snow looks at Rainbow Dash. "No it was the pony of shadows that set it off." Fluttershy hides under the table and thinks. "Pony of shadows I heard rumors but now it's true pony of shadows is real." Pinkie Pie laughs. "Pony of shadows? I thought everyone was frighten of me when I played the piano back at the spooky castle. Is the pony of shadows rumors are true?" Princess Celestia gets very serious. "Yes pony of shadows is real but I never saw him." Discord gets worried. "I may have seen him once with Princess Luna." Silverwing looks at Discord. "Do you know something Discord." Flash Sentry looks at Silverwing. "I think he knows something that he an't telling us." Discord waves the index finger. "Now now now don't blame me I was evil back then. I changed." Princess Twilight looks at Discord. "Where is the pony of shadows Discord." Discord looks at Princess Luna. "Right here in this room." Everyone glared at Discord. Pinkie Pie looking everywhere. "Where is he I don't see him." Rainbow Dash hugs Apple Jack and they both shivered. Princess Snow looks at Discord. "He's trapped in Princess Luna shadow isn't he Discord." Discord laughs. "Wow how did you guess it so easy Princess Snow." Princess Snow is strategies. "I was thinking the obvious." Princess Twilight is unsure. "Well how come he isn't here now?" Discord laughs. "The last thing you did Princess Celestia is that you send him with Princess Luna to battle 1000 with Nightmare Moon you also set Princess Luna free in control." Princess Cadance is shocked. "So Twilight faces the dark terror of Nightmare Moon as first boss fight interesting. Shining Armor looks at Princess Twilight. "My dear Twilight you have tell how you beat Nightmare Moon." Princess Luna looks at Shining Armour. "You know I'm standing right here." Shining Armor coughs. "Sorry forgot you were here." Princess Twilight looks at ponies. "Should we remove him now and get it over." Princess Celestia is coming up with a plan. "Why not we have 5 alicorns, 2 unicorns, 3 pegasus, 5 earth ponies and the king of chaos." Princess Twilight is unsure. "King of chaos?" Princess Celestia looks at Princess Twilight. "Were having a child." Princess Twilight faints. Stain looks at Princess Celestia. "Congratulations I hope it goes well with you." Princess Snow looks at the main 7. "Ok Twilight it is time that the main 7 do the elements of harmony." Discord shouts. "Wait." Princess Twilight looks at Discord. "What is it now Discord." Discord sense danger. "I can't put Princess Celestia in danger." Discord opens a door to the realm of Chaos and walks Princess Celestia and then Discord said. "Oh I forgot to mention I accidentally forgot to tell you guys something." Princess Twilight looks at Discord. "Is it good news." Discord use another door to the Crystal Empire and pulled Shiny Armour and Princess Cadance to that door and closed it. Princess Twilight rolled her eyes. "What is this all about?" Discord tells about the contracts. "Well when I was evil me and Tirek made well a few contracts with a some bounty hunters." Princess Twilight is shocked. "What." "Well they should get here right about now." As Discord walks further to his chaos throne. Glass Breaks down the hallways. Princess Twilight shouts. "Who's the target Discord." "You, Princess Cadance and Princess Snow Crystal." As Discord is really shocked. Princess Snow looks at Discord with a mean look. "How much is my head worth Discord?" Discord laughs. "More than Princess Cadance." Stain is unsure. "Like how so?" Bounty hunter 1 glares at the ponies. "More than a life time of retirement." Bounty hunter 2 laughs. "Surrender or pay the price with your lives." Princess Twilight use the paralyzed magic on all the bounty hunters. Princess Twilight looks at Pinkie Pie. "Pinkie gather these paralyzed bodies and put them in the dungeon." Pinkie Pie smiles. "Can I bring my other self known as Pinkamena Diane Pie Cupcakes." Princess Twilight gets serious. "Tell her she gets the fair share if she finds the information on who hired them. Also make sure you tell her to clean up and take a shower after she's done. You know some of the children is wondering what the stench was last time we did this when she did the changelings. Also tell her to burn the bodies because I don't know if I can build another cemetery." Pinkie Pie laughs. "Ok I'll tell her." Pinkie Pie gets the wheelbarrow and put 10 Bounty hunters and took them to the magic kingdom dungeon then strapped all 10 bounty hunters. Then she went back to grab the last 10 bounty hunters and use the wheel barrow to take them to the dungeon and strapped the other 10. Princess Twilight look at the ponies. "We better get moving things could get ugly here more like screaming." Stain looks at the magic kingdom windows. "Ok where to." Princess Twilight looks back at the castle. "Ok everyone to the castle of Canterlot." All of the ponies went out side. Princess Twilight calls out Discord. Discord appears. Princess Twilight looks at Discord. "Discord take all of us that is in front of you to Canterlot." Discord laughs. "Canterlot it shall be." Everyone went to the door and open it to Canterlot. All ponies went through the door. "Well now that is over let's talk discord." As Princess Twilight looks at him in a serious way. Discord laughs. "It's about the bounty hunters isn't it." Princess Twilight asked a question. "No it's about the pony of shadows."
  8. Introduction It was a cold November night on the front line and operation Strangle the Slumbering Goose was in action. A hand signal was given and the gun fire lite the night sky. They had no chance of survival or mercy, it was a massacre and it was glorious. I watched as explosive went off from hit munitions and bits of shrapnel flew in all directions. I piece of shrapnel grazed my right cheek but I refused to move, we needed this, this is what will bring us back to the living. Chapter One The year, was 1943 and war was all the talk in Soviet Russia. Thousands on thousands of young boys being transported to their slaughter. Many laughing, drinking and trying to make the best of bad times, with more to come. I was Rivet, that's all you need to know, I'm nothing special encase you get any ideas. I came from a bad and poor background, no surprise there as most Soviet families were living it hard. The so called almighty and invincible Mother Russia was a huge cess pool of poverty, crime and political corruption. To survive in this hell of a country is a damn miracle. I am transported to where the action is had, I listen to many stories coming back from the front line of many a massacre, on our side. I pray everyday and wish to see my children another day. Most the men I've been transported with, bargained their way out of this death. They either had connections or did some special favors for the ones that can change a few papers here and there. Myself, I simply sneaked away while no one was looking. They had that many men to look after they couldn't possible keep everyone in check. So the escape was more than easy. I now found myself alone in the wilderness of a Cold and unforgiving Russia. I had no choice but to return, I had no idea where I was and it was so dark I couldn't see 2 feet in front of me. I also think that I heard wolves, I was not going to take the risk and find out. The next morning had come and it was still cold as ever. Every man was low on morale, hungry and losing their mind a little. Some men even said some guys froze to death and some got taken away by wolves. Many lined up for the little food they had to offer. There was not enough food for every man, so they gave some one half a potato and the other a drink of vodka. I got vodka, I would've much preferred the food, but at least I got something rather than nothing. We started moving the convoy and we were coming to a small town, which was abandoned. We were going to set-up a command, some could stay to protect the small command outpost, the rest would continue to the front line. I crossed my fingers I got to be one of the guys that stayed. The next morning had arrived, and every man was lined up for selection. Twenty selections down the line I'd lost all hope in being picked, the last was going to be selected, it was not me. The last man was cheering and acting a complete fool, why him and not me I thought to myself. Then suddenly one of the men who wasn't chosen lunged out at the last man and bite his ear off and started stabbing him multiple times in the stomach. The guards were quick but not quick enough, they shot the attacker and the victim bled out on the ground. They now needed one more man, and that man was me. Thankfully no one attacked me while I walked over to the selection group, I could tell a lot wanted it, and a lot were willing to do anything for it. The relief of getting in the selected group was huge, it meant I could one day meet my wife and children again. Chapter Two

  10. So, I didn't see a thread for this, and I thought Id create one. Discuss anything related to JJBA here, but please be sure to hide spoilers properly. Some of you may be wondering, "What is this 'JoJo' you speak of?" Well my friends, allow me to explain. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a manga series by Hirohiko Araki, first published in 1987 and still ongoing, currently on its eighth part. It has been adapted into anime many times, most famously the 1993 OVA of the manga's third part and the 2012 adaptation of parts 1 and 2, the latter of which led to Part 3 also being animated (still in progress). The series has influenced many things, including video game characters (e.g., Guile from Street Fighter) and produced a fair amount of memes you may have seen, most notably "WRRRRRYYYYY" (did I kinda ruin this somewhat intelligent explanation by mentioning memes?). If you wish to read the manga, the best place would probably be Batoto. The anime series can be found on Crunchyroll. I recommend watching the anime until you run out of episodes, and then starting to read the manga from there.
  11. Here's the jist of it: War, generals, soldiers, Chrysalis, Sombra, enemy gryphons and dragons, group of five alicorn colts that are soldiers and a boy band. Good or not. I've already written out the three trilogies of fan fictions related to this overall plot with the finale in two parts (Just like the series, I just realized). I've had this written out on a journal ever since high school and jsut to warn you, there are a few questionable scene that made the guys laugh and shocked girls, jsut a heads up. Should I post it or not? Be as honest as possible. If given the green light, I'll post the first story of the arc that I've already typed up months ago. I;m just looking for a place to publish this. thank you for your feedback. Disclaimer: This fan fiction has nothing to do with my current OC. In fact, this fan fiction is about my previous OC, General Arcane. I'm currrently writing a fan fic about Kronos.
  12. Hello, all! I know I haven't been on here in a long time, but I would like to take the time to post my comic. http://longlivethefrontier.thecomicseries.com/ Long Live the Frontier takes place far in the future, much longer after the show. While I can't tell much without spoiling the next few pages that are in the works, I can say it's going to be good! The main character is Deadwood, somepony I haven't even brought out to dust off in a long time. As this is only the first page, it's a style I have not used in so long, it's alien to me, but not so alien that I cannot use it. So, what do you think?

  14. Chapter 1. Grundel Because my mind is out of of step with reality and the thoughts from tomorrow haunt my dreams as sharply as those from yesterday, I shall start this tale part way through it's journey..... _____________ . ______________ Falling forward she landed hard flat on her belly. Winded she stood up, pirouetted on her front hooves and clocked him in the side of the head with a rear. He snorted briefly, rolled his eyes and went down like a sack of potatoes. Then came the icy tones of Colonel Raven. Oh hell, she was in for it now! Even if he had seen everything that led to that kick she would likely be up on a charge. "Tigger, you and Delta move to forward defence. You, what crew are you?" Before anypony could reply, "Pick that up, put him in your ship and follow them," he balled, pointing at Grundel. "We'll talk about consequences 'if' you come back!" Delta, Hatty and Tigger ran for their tank before anything else could happen. Hatty hung up the charge cable on it's post and closed the door before jumping into the engineers seat. "Main Batt is full, aux is full, main gun shows green," she called out. Everything appeared to be working fine, which was of some concern? They had called the old tank 'grundel', because of it's lack of interest in doing anything properly. It was just grumpy and reluctant to trundle and should have been destroyed ten times over! The previous crew of Unicorns had done things to it and no one was quite sure what? If nothing else it could take one hell of a beating. And 'hell' was where it was happy. Tigger watched as Hatty threw the main breakers and smiled as the machine began to hum and tick. Sounding the siren she steered the giant tracked gun out of the parking area and onto the road. Forward defence wasn't a big task, so she decided to burn some power on a fast run. It would be interesting to see if Rotors crew could keep up? All was going well until they came to a fallen tree. Tigger slowed down to climb over the obstacle, which passed with nothing more exciting than the sound of splintering wood. Hatty was just getting up to check something as tigger put her hoof down. There was huge bang and the tank stopped dead. Hatty hit the panel in front of her hard and slumped back in her seat. Delta sprang to her aid and pulled the silver mare to the floor. "Oh hell she's out cold," he said. "We need to get her back". Tigger looked around her for signs of ambush and attempted to reverse up. Checking behind she could see Rotors tank coming up fast behind them. Giving the tank full drive power she felt it dig in. "Tank trap!" she called out. "I thought ours were supposed to be marked on the map?" "Must be a new one?" called out Delta. "How many fingers am i holding up?" he asked Hatty. "Pony's don't have fingers," she half grinned back, "But when did you get eight legs?" Then she passed out again. Tigger looked down at her friend and scowled. "Get Rotors crew to take her back. At least they are moving. I'll call for recovery when she's safe." Delta dragged the incapacitated mare to the rear door, kicked it open and pulled her through. It wasn't safe outside, but the obstacle they were stuck in might be dialled into an enemy firing position. Right now it was a juicy stationary target. Ten minutes later she heard the other machine move off, followed by Delta shutting the door. If it was a trap laid by their ponies then forward was probably the only way out. It would have been dug to slam fast moving machines into the vertical wall of earth she had just driven over. Self recovery was worth a shot before she called for help. This time she was gentle with the controls as they moved forward. At first Grundel wouldn't climb the exit slope, but with a turn this way and that they began to climb out. It was all looking feasible until; "You rust bucket!" she shouted as the track just exiting the ditch began to smoke. It must have been holding them back because a sharp jab on the stirrups had the huge machine leaping from the trap. The exit wasn't quite as graceful as it needed to be and another track motor took the harsh landing badly. Tigger jumped from her station and made for the door carrying something. "You lousy rotten..." Delta couldn't make out the really bad words because she was holding some heavy object in her teeth, but he could hear the ringing blows as Tigger struck the free wheeling links with a hammer. It was more 'tiger' than sweet little mare today! A metallic twang suggested both front drive motors were now disconnected. Delta stepped up to the command panel and set them both to 'Isolate' as Tigger was shutting the door. This was all turning out badly and he was glad they would be going back despite the repercussions. "It'll be an easy run to the front," she said. Then seeing Delta's surprised face; "It's a steady downhill road. We'll take it it turns to nap tonight, then grab a tow in the morning." Chapter 2. Time to Leave Tigger opened the rear door and sprang out into the roar of gun fire. There wasn't time to be messing about removing covers and seeing which power relay was sticking. Instead she span around and bucked the general vicinity of the power cell as hard as she could before diving back into the relative safety of the tank. Jabbing her hooves back into the shifter stirrups she punched the auxiliary power button again and waited for the indicator bar to creep up. It hadn't been the quiet evening she had hoped for. Her arrival seemed to motivate the enemy and they were pretty keen to get rid of them before she could report their positions. They were in luck, because the initial firing of the tank's rail gun showed the main battery was indeed lying about its condition. "One, two, three, come on! I'm not going out like this! Not with a flat battery!" she shouted at the info panel as another projectile clanged off the front armour. If this carried on she would be lucky to back up let alone fire the rail gun again. It might have been the kick or the impact of the incoming fire that shook the whole machine, but either way the indicator shot into the green and the cooling fans started up. Delta looked up from the communication station. "Incoming!" he shouted, adding; "Right now, while we were down, they got on top of us." Setting the auto-target system to 'metallic' Tigger scanned the battle field ahead for Robot Horses and found no shortage of targets. There was even a command tank coming into view far off in the distance. The combination of both types of weaponry was bad news. If she used the main gun on the heavy target she would run the risk of a power outage that would leave her unable to fight the hoof soldiers. But if she didn't fire she risked its main weaponry hitting her. There was no option really but to remove the immediate threat a mere stone's throw in front of her. "Missile, set dead ahead, shrapnel, 300 steps!" she barked. Delta looked up with surprise at the very short fuse delay, but seeing her face he immediately cranked it in and slid the explosive rocket into its launcher. Tigger put the cross hairs onto a mech in the middle of the group ahead, selected 'missile' on the ordinance panel and pressed send. Everypony held their breath as the launch tube showed green and then orange before the whole tank shook to Tigger's touch of the fire button. Almost instantly the second explosion hit them. The leading mech soldiers' disintegration was followed by a rain of debris on the roof. "That should hide us for a second or two," She said out loud to herself. "Ready the rail gun. I want those capacitors charged and ready to go as soon as their heavy shows through the dust." Hopefully the opposing force believed that it was her blowing up? "Yes Sir," shouted back Delta as he threw the auxiliary power switch to the main gun. This wasn't exactly in the training manual, but nor was fighting with half the travel motors out. He held his breath as the power hummed into the rapid release storage batteries. "Come on, come on," he said as the indicator on his panel rose. Tigger looked down and smiled. "This is going to work. We should raise a full shot just before we see them." Turning back to the viewer she added, "Or at least, just before they can see us?" Ideally she would use technology to scan the horizon for the large metal threat coming toward her, but this would have to be done by sight. Hopefully the metal of battle machine parts strewn around them would hide their radar profile. Right now the debris was the only thing hiding her and she needed to keep it that way by not emitting energy waves. Delta's eyes were upon her as she stared into the periscope. The only noise came from the circulation fans and the super-coolant running through the gun coils. He held his breath and waited. There was no doubting she had found her quarry when her ears went back. With a grin she took the distance. "Ten thousand steps, ten steps compensation, full charge rail gun!" "Rail gun at ninety eight percent," replied Delta. As the front of the tank lifted slightly to aim the main weapon Tigger turned the trigger selector to 'automatic' and set it to trip at full charge. "Brace!" she shouted. Their whole world shook as the entire battery load was dumped into the coils surrounding the gem tipped projectile. Even at this range the effect was virtually instantaneous, a red trace lighting the ground ahead. A flash indicated it had found something solid in the distance and as the bright light receded the opposing tank could be seen split in two. Tigger hadn't time to be pleased though. Spinning the commander seat around she kicked both stirrups forward and felt the machine lurch under her. The remaining tracks scrabbled for grip on the dirt road before eventually finding their way. "Time to get out out of here," she called out. "Eye's wide open for ambush! They know where we are and they know we're off home." Chapter 3. Home Time Getting home wasn't going to be an easy feat. It wasn't a large distance to the forward operations centre, but the two dragging tracks weren't helping and nor had that last railgun charge. They were very pleased to see a recovery track ahead and radioed its number. "Heavy to 23, require recovery," called Delta. "Recovery 23 to Heavy, taking fire, set your auto tow, ready for syncro." Tigger tapped the recovery icon on the auto pilot and felt the feedback pressure drop on the stirrups. Her tank approached the other machine slowly with the ominous sound of heavy machine gun fire tinkling on the outer armour. There was a stout metallic clack as the tow hitches locked. "I have you Heavy, returning to Base A3." Supply Base A3 would do nicely as she didn't have to face any flack from the earlier incident at Park 6. Alpha Three would be a bit too close to the action to have a comfy lay about and a rest though. A night in her tank was a safe bet. She hoped they had parts? "Is there a fresh battle plan in yet, are we in for a good haul?" she asked Delta. "Long enough for munchies if we are to make a start on the drive motors on arrival," He rummaged around in a side locker before jumping and dropping the entire contents on the floor. "Nuts, what the hell was that one? I thought it was coming through the hull!" Tigger studied the back end and then spun to view the front. "Meh, front light only ever lit up the top of the gun anyway," she shrugged at the wisp of smoke coming from it's mount. "It should be showing a line-short on the third bus. Yes, nice one, lemon hay-bar! Hoof that over over here before it rattles under the floor board." They were soon in a line up of other battered hardware, a power line running into the back of their tank. A heated debate was soon underway; "Just because I only have one drive motor doesn't mean I'm out for good!" shouted a blue stallion. Tigger laughed. "That main gun is done for. Look at the sedate gentle curve along its length. You couldn't hit us with that and we're right in front you! Give it up, you know you want to. Help a filly out. Its half off anyway?" "What the buck? Get the hell away from my tank ya jack ass!" Delta looked a little ashamed. "Well, it sounded like we almost had a deal?" Tigger re-gained the stallions attention. "Hay bar? It's a lemon one," she suggested, waving the bright wrapper in front of the stallion. He eyed it cautiously. "Yeh, go on then. If it had been strawberry you would have been walking home!" Tigger grinned, kissed him on the nose and ripped the power coupling out of Grundle's side with a bright blue flash. "Baby's getting a new track motor," she sang. Half an hour later they were synchronising the drive speeds as tinkling noises came from above. Tigger looked up at the inside of the hull. "Shrap' rains early tonight, how are we doing on charge? Mine says fifty percent?" "Mine says one battery is in the main stores in Neighville and the other says two hundred percent, so i guess we should have took his comms panel as well," replied Delta as he got up to throw the charge cable out of the back door." Soon they were underway in the darkness which was much easier without the gun-light reflecting back at them. Three motors put the odds in their favour and they were making cruising speed. Nopony needed to be loitering around this close to the front and speed was better than armour. Delta kept an ear out for 'chitt chat' on the radio and the secure scribe-net. He could see that some R&R wasn't going to be in his stars this week. Their forces were taking a hammering in the north, while in the south progress was slow. "We are directed to Air 19. I guess it's an emergency air supply depot? Left at the next turn." Tigger made the next turn a little wider than she wished and took out a fair length of roadside fence. Glancing sideways to the rear-view portion of the periscope she saw a post come up over a rear track and snap like a toothpick as the metal belt took a second bite. Her eye lids felt heavy as they pulled onto the side of the air strip next to some other beaten up Heavies. Delta flipped the breakers as they made for the door. Just outside was a young stallion in flying garb. "We're all leaving. They've got ahead of our forces and we're cut off. That's your way out," he said pointing to a plane. "I'll see you onboard." Tigger walked to the plane chatting to Delta, but then suddenly looked confused. She hadn't been more than a thousand steps away from that machine in six moons? "Come on Captain, Hatty left hours ago, Grundels going to be fine!" But Tigger didn't look so sure? "We can catch a plane back with spare parts in an hour or two," he added. As she put a hoof on the first step she heard the hit and felt the betrayal. She knew in that instant what the noise was. The whole of existence slowed as she thought back to the first time she saw that cursed machine. Ever since she had fallen through the roof of that shed and landed on 'her tank' it was obvious to her that they had a journey to make. Only Hatty and Delta would go near it. That's why it was in a shed on it's own. Until it's true Captain sat at it's command station it just crackled and spat at anypony who dared to look at it. She didn't even know why it liked them? They had tried to paint it, but the paint just slid off onto the floor as though it simply rejected it. Enchanted or cursed, Tigger was the only officer who gained a tank command just by being able to drive one about. "She doesn't need to sit an exam if she can drive that thing. If she can get near it without being burned alive then who are you to deny her anything?" had been one overheard argument. As a sound like imploding glass rang out across the airstrip she looked up to see the utter horror across Delta's face. Standing wide mouthed his eyes were huge as he watched Grundel turn a brilliant purple and then begin to crack all over its surface. "That's not right," he mumbled, "That was only a small shell." The cracks thickened and then for a split second he could see every impact it had ever taken. One large round had gone right through his radio station, a tank on the other side easily visible through the hull. But until that moment it hadn't shown as much as a scratch? And then, as though it had simply just had enough of the fight it imploded. All that remained was one rear track set that had somehow been left behind as a memento. "GO!" screamed Tigger as she ran up the steps hurling Delta into the plane. "GO!" she shouted at the pilot, who was thinking the same thing as more missiles rained down. This was going to be another close one and the ground was traveling past them quite quickly as they slammed the door shut. At least they were gaining distance as they crept into the sky. Then it just sort of hit her. Her home was gone? Where would she go now and what would she do next? As she sat on the floor with the other ponies she was strangely all alone. It was like Tigger had died inside Grundel. Now it was just her. She was back to being Tammy, a young mare with a hint of stripes in her soft brown coat. The End Team Idris .
  15. so this is my first submitted fanfic that was written in a different language than german so i hope you guys can get some entertainment out of this ^^ comments and opinions are welcome (even the unpleasant ones) The story itself is about a green stallion and his bookshop that appeared right outside of Ponyville and Twilight Sparkle is going to investigate this strangers secrets. strange link --> http://www.fimfiction.net/story/280799/1/the-strange-salespony/the-strange-salespony
  16. A lot of fanfictions, ones i've seen at least, are mostly 1) Clop, 2)short stories, or 3)going against all things that made the show enjoyable in the first place (a.k.a canon). I set out to create a story that was not any of those things. I wanted to create a story I, myself would enjoy. After reading Her Frontier (a link is provided inside story description, linkception), I realized how good fanfictions could be. I wanted to imitate (not copy, see) those qualities into my own story. So I spent hours, days even, learning grammer, vocabulary, punctuation, slang, and other junk that you need to make good stories, and this is what I have created: "After a freak accident at Fluttershy's cottage, Rainbow Dash and Twilight become much more hostile towards each other than any friendly disagreement, and Applejack gets caught right in the middle of their feud. All the while, the Cutie Map has activated again, sending the mane six to a strange new town in the San Palomino Desert. This community ends up hiding something bigger than anypony could ever imagine. Will the Mane Six be able to save Equestria, or will they tear themselves apart from the inside?" It is unfinished, but is is currently sitting at a nice 20,000 words. I believe it is about a fifth of the way done. So if your looking for more of a book rather than a short story, you got it. I haven't uploaded in a while, but I will start uploading more soon, especially if it picks up from this post. Here's the link: https://www.fimfiction.net/story/272678/house-rules Like it, dislike it, favorite it, comment, whatever you want. Stories are made for sharing.
  17. don't write many fanfictions that often, but here is my latest and first fanfic. I hope you guys enjoy! (P.S: if link doesn't work, try typing in Almond Blackberry into wattpad, and you may find me) http://w.tt/1L2u3jq.

  20. Good afternoon, citizens of MLP Forums! Do you know what it's time for? It's time... for some shameless self-promotion!!! That's right Kermit, yay indeed. But first, I've got some exciting, super-duper, awesome, stupendous, fabulous, muffinlicious news (for me ). I... finally got featured on Fimfiction!!! Yup, there it is, second to last on the feature page! And let me tell you, it was the most anti-climactic thing ever!

This has been something I've been working towards since I first joined Fimfiction in 2013, and even though it was probably the result of long-term statistics on my fic, it's still oh-so-sweet. So to any of my readers from MLP Forums, thank you so much for the support you've given to me that's kept me writing and managed to finally get me a Fimfic feature (special shoutout to my BFF DashForever, my long time editor and pre-reader who continues to give me a ton of help and advice with my fic)! That brings me to my second bit of news. I've just uploaded the first of two new chapters for Batmare Begins! Took me quite awhile to get them written up, but considering I finally managed to get my first feature on Fimfic, totally worth it!

  22. A dialogue only story) FIMFiction link Sunset Shimmer needs information on a specific mirror, and she knows just the ogre to get it from. "Who goes there? Ah, a tasty little pony.” “Oh! Oh no… a terrifying ogre. What ever should I do.” “Hehe. Nothing. Your flesh won’t fill me, but your bones will add nice flavor to my stew.” “Oh, I don’t think that will be the case.” “What? How… how are you doing this.” “Simple, magic. You see, I know you ogres grow stronger with fear. However, because I know that I do not fear you. You are rather pathetic after all. And without fear even a unicorn far below my abilities would be able to hold you.” “Intriguing. Who are you? What do you want?” “Simple creature. You don’t want to know my name. If I can’t ensure your loyalty, and you knew my name, then I’d have to dispose of you. Which would be a waste. I’d much rather save you for later. As for what I want, that would be information. There is a good chance you know something about a particular ancient magical mirror. As there are so very few who ever knew about it, much less that are alive today, that makes you very valuable.” “A mirror? I know of several magical mirrors that could be of interest to many. How about you let me down and I’ll tell so you can leave. I don’t like it when ponies pin me to walls with cheaty magics.” “Oh, I suppose I could do that. “Very well. I will let you down if you promise to treat me like a guest under the old accords.” “Agreed. Though, it does not seem like I have a choice. Now, let me down.” “Humph. Do you really think I’d fall for such a thing as that. Honestly. Promise me properly or I’ll be forced to use other means to get you to talk.” “Fine. I promise under the old accords that I will treat you as a guest for this visit, with all the protections and expectations that go along with it.” “That’s better. Now, the mirror.” “Very well. Which mirror do you wish to know about?” “One created by Starswirl the Bearded and currently under the protection of Princess Celestia.” “If I tell you do I have your guarantee on your magic that you will leave me in peace?” “I provide that guarantee. Though I may return with other proposals in the distant future. If I do so I will return in peace now that you know of my strength.” “That sounds... agreeable. From your information you would either be speaking of the void mirror or the hearts mirror. The hearts mirror shows one their hearts desire, perfect for developing and testing one's willpower but increasingly dangerous to the viewers mind, especially after prolonged use. It is even capable of destroying some ponies complete-” “Yes, yes. Hearts mirror; no greater weakness than one’s own heart. No greater strength than conquering one’s own demons. I’m much more interested with the void mirror?” “Very well, let me think here. The void mirror was created as a way to banish otherwise unyielding foes to another plane. It has, to my knowledge, only seem limited use. A mage, such as a unicorn of your apparent caliber, would be able to cast a spell on another and they would be banished, unable to return.” “Do you-” “Know the spell? I do not, and before you ask I will voluntarily bind myself by speaking the answer two more times. I do not know the spell. By the nature of my kind to which I am bound, I do not know the spell. I deal in the knowledge and history of powerful artifacts that might someday be of use to me. Not spells that I would be unable to cast. “Now, as I was saying to you, eager young unicorn. The strength of the spell is that it sends the imprisoned to a universe, or other plane of existence, where it is all but impossible to use magic. Some smaller magic is possible but magical reserves cannot easily be charged and those that traverse the portal tend to be drained on arrival. Some more powerful types of magic, not magic with exceptional power behind it but specific types of innately more powerful magics, are feasible and are not drained upon arrival. But again their power would be limited and the magic would not recharge easily if at all. Pure magic is easily corrupted in that world, and to a greater degree. But dark power is also more easily purified and the purification is supposed to be more complete. Though I was never able to confirm that information. “That is the mechanism of the prison. The true usefulness is that it allows those not banished with the associated spell to visit between worlds once every three moons. In the week that the portal is open it allows the user to travel freely, though with drained magic, to and from the other plane for a full week. If the individual that traveled through the portal by means other than the spell does not return before the portal closes, they may again travel freely anytime the portal is opened.” “Perfect. Now if you would be so kind as to swear to not tell anyone about this than I will leave a very happy mare.” “As you insist. I swear to keep your visit a secret. I swear to keep your visit a secret. By the nature of my kind to which I am bound, I swear to keep your visit a secret.” “Excellent. Stay safe my good ogre. I might have other, more equally beneficial reasons to visit with you in the future.” “As you wish. But before you go I am curious. What is your name?” “If you wish to know my name then you will need to swear to keep it a secret as well.” “I have already sworn to keep your visit a secret. Doing so again would only insult my nature.” “Hmmm. Very well then. My name is Sunset Shimmer, you’ll want to remember it.” “Very well, while not the most pleasant visit. It was very... lively meeting you Sunset Shimmer.” “Yes it was. Farewell.” “Farewell.” … “Silly little unicorn. Celestia loves puzzles. I shall enjoy watching her puzzle out an invitation to have tea with me. And I will be most pleased to have her in my debt. “Sunset Shimmer. Hmm. Strong, brash, intelligent but inexperienced. Someday she too might be interesting to watch. She might even have the potential to become… Exceptional? Yes. Perhaps some day.” If you liked this story follow me on FIMFiction!
  23. Fimfiction Link Adventure/Human Discord has won. Everyone in the human world is under his dominion, save for Sunset Shimmer whom he saved for last. Today the world, tomorrow Equestria. Big thanks to Winston, Grand_Moff_Pony, and xgfhj18 for edits. (sorry xgfhj18, I don't know your fimfiction name) Discord laughed as Sunset, his final prize, was held to the ground before him by the very friends that she held so dear. “Oh, dearest little Sunset Shimmer. Do you think you can resist me? Do you think that I can’t turn you against your very nature? I’ve already done it to your friends, your teachers, and quite literally every other sentient being in this world. And, may I cut to the chase for a moment here, we both know that you’re nothing without your friends. I mean, seriously, you gave up your soul and turned into a monster in a vain attempt to capture Equestria. If anything, I don’t even need to corrupt you, simply removing your friends would be enough to start your own pathetic spiral of self pity and greed.” Discord danced ever closer to Sunset, tiptoeing through tulips and daisies as Sunset’s five best friends held her down against her will. Rainbow Dash was the first to talk, looking down on Sunset as she straddled her chest and forced Sunset’s hands into the mud. “Look, Sunny, this place sucks. Just accept it.” “For once I agree with this airhead jock.” Applejack muttered while she and Pinkie Pie tightened their grip on Sunset's legs. “Yeah,” said Pinkie. “This party's pooped. Just accept it and we can all go to Equestria and have some real fun for once. Or at least I will once I’ve ditched these losers.” “Bite me!” yelled Sunset as she struggled to try and free her limbs. “Really, darling.” Rarity strode into Sunset’s view. “Such behavior is so uncouth, even for a monster like you. There really is no reason to be uncivilized. I think it’s the thing I most dislike about you.” “Really,” muttered Sunset. She twisted her face into a crude imitation of a classic Southern belle. “Well ain’t that just a cryin’ shame. Why, that was my favorite part.” “Now now girls,” interrupted Discord as he dipped his head between them. “I don’t think this is working very well and, quite frankly, I don’t find this game very interesting anymore.” Discord bent over and smirked at Sunset as she tried again to struggle free. “Now, close your mouth and open your eyes and you will experience a chaotic surprise.” Sunset opened her mouth and screamed in defiance, only for her voice to suddenly cut off as Discord’s eagle talon reached down and poked her directly between the eyes. Her senses immediately faded. Color drained from her world, the distant sounds of birds lost their sweetness, even the freshly cut grass that was being shoved into her face lost its scent. “Good,” came Discord’s voice from within her mind. “Now do you remember what it was like to be by yourself? How strong you were, or how much potential you had before you got distracted by friendship. Do you remember how good it felt?” “Yes,” thought Sunset. Discord smiled as he observed the color drain from her features. Slowly but surely she, like every other toy in his world was becoming... well, not quite his minion, but a pleasantly chaotic ally. The change, however, was slow... She was strong, independent, and full of friendship and metaphorical butterflies. In short, she was the perfect last challenge to his complete but inevitable conquest. And as soon as she was under his influence he would finally be able to return to Equestria. Discord smiled, praising himself for his victory. He heard the screams as Sunset was thrust into memory after memory, nightmare after nightmare of the past. Nobody could resist his power, especially someone who’d fallen on her own so many times before. This was not how Sunset imagined her first Summer Sun Celebration would go. Sunset and her cousin Misty had gotten lost in the Foal Mountain Forest, just outside of Canterlot, playing hide and seek. Now they were cold and tired and everything was dark and scary. Misty couldn’t go on any farther. She sat down next to a tree and began to cry as Sunset desperately tried to get her to stand up. They had to find the adults or they could be lost in the forest forever. Misty was older and bigger than Sunset by a full year, and though Sunset tried to get her up and off the dirty forest floor Misty was just too big for her to move. That was the last straw. Sunset felt herself falling to her haunches on the dirt and tears began to well in her eyes. She was tired and hungry and she wanted to get out of the forest. She wouldn’t even get to see the Princess raise the sun. She just wanted to sit down and cry, but then, nothing would ever get better if she gave up. The thought of not giving up sparked a memory of something her mother had told her on her last birthday. “Sunset, you must never give up on something that matters. You aren’t just anypony; you’re Sunset Shimmer. You’re my daughter. You are smarter, harder working, and better than just about every pony I’ve ever met except for Princess Celestia. Remember that if you ever start to fail, look inside yourself and you will find the strength to go on.” Sunset closed her eyes, letting them tear up, but she didn’t cry. She looked inside herself to try to find an answer to the problem. She didn’t know what she was looking for or how to find it, but she did know it was there because her mother had told her it was. She was Sunset Shimmer, daughter of Glory Shimmer, and she was as smart and as strong as any other pony. It wasn’t that she could save them. She felt something that screamed that she would save both herself and her cousin. It was then that Sunset noticed that Misty had stopped crying. Sunset opened her eyes and found the entire clearing glowing with a slightly golden white light. She looked around for it’s source, causing the light and the shadows to move. It was then that Sunset realized that the light was coming from her own horn. Sunset wasn’t very good at magic, but she was good enough to recognize that this was completely different from anything she had ever done, and it felt right somehow. Sunset closed her eyes again and began to focus magic through her horn until the light was bright enough that she could see it through her eyelids. She focused more and more magic through her horn until it hurt and then she continued until she felt weak. I can do this. The adults will see the light and then they will come. I can do this. I am Sunset Shimmer and I can do this! Sunset suddenly felt the ground beneath her shake slightly as something heavy landed next to her. She opened her eyes and turned to face whatever might be attacking her and her cousin with a defiant growl, still focusing magic to keep the light as bright as she could. “Easy, my little pony,” said the pony that could only be Princess Celestia. “Your family has been looking for you for a few hours. How about I take you to them?” Sunset stopped focusing magic into her horn as she and Misty looked at each other. They both smiled and then rushed to the princess, praising her for saving them. “Oh my!” said Princess Celestia. “I do believe there is something on your flank, my little pony.” Sunset turned to wipe off whatever was on her flank but suddenly stopped. There on her flank was a cutie mark, and not just any cutie mark, but one that matched the colors in her mane. It was the best cutie mark Sunset had ever seen, and it was hers. Misty drew Sunset’s attention as she began dancing around chanting around her. “Sunset got her cutie mark, Sunset got her cutie mark.” Sunset blushed when she noticed the princess smiling at the display. “Misty,” she groaned, “don’t embarrass me in front of the princess.” Celestia chuckled. “It’s something very much worth Celebrating little Sunset. I for one look forward to teasing you in front of your whole family when they see that I’ve returned you minus two blank flanks as they had described.” Sunset groaned but couldn’t help but smile as looked back again. Everyone in her class would be so jealous that she had been the first to get her cutie mark. “Yes.” Discord's voice in the void echoed within Sunset’s mind. “You never could rely on anyone else, could you? Even as a filly you had to look out for your older cousin. It was her responsibility to look after you, but even then you had to do it yourself.” Sunset threw her empty saddle bags on her bed as she jumped after it. She slammed her head into the pillows and began to scream. This was the absolute worst first day in school that Sunset had ever had. Not only was she in a new school with none of her friends, but the ponies in her class hated her for no reason. She had been tripped, her lunch tray had been flipped over, and now her books had been stolen. Oh, she had tried to tell the teachers that she needed an extra day to get her assignments done because someone had stolen her books, but none of them had believed her. After all, all the ponies in the class were from the highest tiers of society, and who would even think about picking on Celestia’s brand new pupil? Obviously the stress was just getting to Sunset. The teachers said she should go talk to the Princess. It was her who had asked for Sunset to be placed in such a high level of schooling after attending one of the lesser public schools. Well, Sunset would do just that. She wouldn’t be able to meet with Princess Celestia until the weekend but she was told that she could still write a letter and have anypony in the royal guard deliver it to her post haste. Sunset pulled her head away from the pillow and turned to her saddlebags. She found her paper, quill, and ink bottle and went to her desk to begin to write. She had to focus for a moment before her magic flared and she picked up the quill, dipped it in the ink and began to write. Dear Princess Celestia, She went slowly because her penship with her horn wasn’t quite perfect yet. She went to dip the quill back in the ink and when she tried to continue she found the page completely blank. Sunset blinked before trying again. Dear Princess Celestia, This time Sunset watched the ink fade into the page. Her pent up anger boiled over all at once, and she flung the ink, paper, and everything else off the desk. She turned and bucked the desk over and over again, screams of rage accompanying every thud against the solid wood surface. “Ah school.” There was the familiar voice that Sunset just couldn’t quite place. “So much fun with all the kiddies learning to work together, helping each other learn. Well, except for you. They never liked you much, did they? If it wasn’t them ruining your homework or your projects, then it was them provoking you, bullying you. The teachers didn’t even seem to have any sympathy. No one liked you. Well, no one but Princess Celestia.” Sunset pulled the plain framed picture out of the bag. The cardboard box was new and she didn’t have to worry about the rain getting her things wet, at least for a few hours, so she indulged herself. Sunset ran an un-shoed hoof over the image of her as a filly on Princess Celestia’s back. It was right after she had gotten her cutie mark and Sunset was proudly showing it off right above Princess Celestia’s. Sunset set the picture aside in its frame and pulled out her dinner. It wasn’t bad, actually. Generally when it rained ponies were less likely to take the time to appease her begging or spit on her. Today had been different. Sunset had been outside a bakery, asking passing ponies if they could spare a bit, or a piece of food. She had long ago learned to not ask if anypony knew about an open job or if they would be willing to pay her to run chores. No one trusted a homeless pony, but some would occasionally play a prank on her. However, the bakery she had been begging next to seemed to take pity on her while she stood in the rain and gave her two whole loaves of two day old bread. It was a pretty good catch, actually, as it was a well respected bakery that Sunset couldn’t afford. She pulled one loaf out of her bag and then out of its brown paper packaging with her magic. She wasted no time eagerly biting into her score. She gagged and spit out the bitter mess. She lit her horn up to inspect the bread more carefully. It wasn’t two day old bread, it was moldy. She quickly pulled out the other loaf from it’s brown paper bag to find that it too was moldy. Sunset swore. The bakery didn’t have to give her moldy bread to go away. If they didn’t want a beggar outside their establishment then all they had to do was ask, it was a Manehatten ordinance for Celestia’s sake. If any business felt that a transient was causing a loss of sales they simply had to ask the transient to leave. If they didn’t then they had grounds to ask a the local royal guard to remove the individual. Of course, this was simpler and probably more satisfying for those degenerate two faced jerks. Sunset threw both loaves of bread out in disgust, immediately regretting the decision as the insides of the loaves were probably edible. Sunset decided that she didn’t care to go looking for them. This was just her luck. She had no food and it was getting too late to go back out and beg. All the ponies with anything worth giving would be locked up warm and dry in their homes. She momentarily thought about dipping into her few bits and going to buy a hayburger but dismissed the idea. She’d had breakfast, her last few packets of instant oatmeal, and needed to save her few remaining bits for a rainy day. Or rather, though Sunset, a rainy day where she didn’t have a fresh box to sleep in. One of the big advantages to buying food was getting someplace dry and warm to eat it in. Sunset looked at the picture of her and Celestia before tipping it picture side down. Despite her falling out with her mentor she had never been able to get rid of that picture of the two of them. Oh sure, Celestia hated her now and Sunset blamed Celestia for ruining her life. But the picture was the only reminder she had of happy times. After all, that was when she’d gotten her cutie mark. My cutie mark, thought Sunset. She looked back at the bright mark and smiled. It was a good mark. She remembered when she got it by looking deep inside herself. Suddenly a thought occurred to Sunset. She had never really done that again, looked inside herself for strength. She remembered the words her mother had spoken to her as a filly. Remember that if you ever start to fail, look inside yourself and you will find the strength to go on. Sunset vaguely felt like chuckling but it really wasn’t a laughing matter. She was, after all, homeless with no friends and was by far too proud to ever go home without having something to her name. Well, she wasn’t tired and it wasn’t like a homeless pony had anything else to do so she decided to give it a try. Sunset closed her eyes and took a deep breath. She still didn’t know what it meant to look inside herself, so she started by blocking out the world around her. The sound of the rain faded and she slowly forgot the chill that had been growing ever since she settled in for the night. Sunset took another breath and let the feeling of sitting leave her awareness. Slowly an image began to form in her mind. The image was of herself, but as an alicorn. It was very similar to the image that a mirror showed her when Princess Celestia had let her look at some old magical items. Celestia had never meant for Sunset to look in that mirror. Or rather, she hadn’t meant for Sunset to look in it yet. Sunset had only caught a glimpse of herself as an alicorn but she remembered how beautiful and strong she had looked. There had been something else in the mirror that Sunset hadn’t seen well but if she had to guess it would have been many ponies watching her, cheering her, Princess Sunset Shimmer. Sunset opened her eyes, recalling the memory of what that image had done to her. She had defied Celestia and had begun researching the mirror against her mentor's wishes. She had even gone so far as to read some forbidden books in an attempt to either figure out what the mirror was or how to become an alicorn. She had succeeded, of course, finding out everything there was to know about the mirror and the other world it connected to. But Celestia had discovered her unapproved extracurricular activities. For defying Celestia’s express wishes and warnings Sunset had been removed as Celestia’s pupil and expelled from her school until such time as Sunset could provide evidence that she had changed for the better Sunset had tried to redeem her image. But she had been close to graduating and the news that Celestia’s prized pupil had been cast out swept across the country far faster than Sunset could travel. It was a humiliating memory, one that plagued her often, and Sunset wondered why trying to reach for inner strength had reminded her of the root of her failure... unless, perhaps, Sunset was destined to become an Alicorn. Maybe there was a way in the universe that existed on the other side of that mirror. Maybe, just maybe, she should not have given in so easily and followed through with her research by going into the mirror. Sunset pulled out a small journal, quill, and ink. They were valuable treasures to her, something she rarely used because she could not afford to replace them. But she had to plan carefully if she were to try and sneak into the castle to use the mirror. “Yes,” came the reassuring voice in her head as Sunset began to open her eyes. “You did plan and you did succeed. You became a goddess yourself, with no help from the Princess or the world that had rejected you. You’re a loner, Sunset Shimmer, and you deserve the respect of others for accomplishing what only a few had done before you. The masses of Equestria should grovel before you and fill you with pride at being their better.” The world began to focus out of a blank haze as Sunset heard Discord laughing. She realized that the voice that had reached her as she remembered her darkest moments was that of Discord, spirit of Chaos. She remembered how he had appeared, broken free on accident from a statue in a museum by two of her friends’ little sisters and their friend Scootaloo. The statue had been identical to one she had seen back in Canterlot, one that had also depicted Discord as the spirit of Chaos. After Discord broke out he went on a rampage and changed virtually everything he could get his magic on. He had even turned her friends against her and that was why she was now pinned beneath them. After Discord had turned her friends, they had revealed to him the existence of Equestria and how to get there. Discord continued to laugh in victory as Sunset felt tears slide down her face. It still hurt to think about all she had gone through in life and how she had failed; her failure as Celestia’s student; her failure to even get along with anypony or anyone else. Sunset’s hate, resentment, pride, and ego had flared at Discord’s corruptive touch but she managed to keep from losing herself in those emotions. She had remembered, even relived what had driven her to make more and more mistakes in her life. But she couldn’t give in to him. Sunset instinctively began to look inside herself. In her heart she found her friends. Each one was attached to memories that seemed just as vivid to her as those Discord had forced her to relive. Scoring her first goal against Rainbow Dash one on one in soccer. Learning to bake with Pinkie Pie. Working at the groomers with Fluttershy. Rarity giving Sunset a practically new cell phone and helping Sunset bedazzle it to have her cutie mark proudly displayed on its back. Beating herself up for letting Applejack Down by missing a barn raising, and Applejack forgiving her and helping her see the true meaning of friendship that had been around her all along. Whatever Discord did to her, she had to help her friends, she had to free them. Sunset kept that feeling inside of herself and in her mind as Discord began to speak. “Oh, goodie. Girls, I do believe Sunset is ready to help us on our way back to Equestria. What do you say, Sunny old girl? How about you tell us where you hid your journal that connects to Equestria?” Sunset breathed heavily for a moment as the girls got off of her. She stood up and wiped the mud off her cloths. However, as she turned to look up at Discord something stood out against her faded yellow skin. “What’s that on your forehead, hmmm?” Discord said while bending forward. Sunset turned toward the glass windows of a nearby classroom and smiled. In the center of her forehead, right where Discord’s finger had touched her, the yellow color of her skin was pushing the grey back. She turned back to Discord and smiled. “That’s me, Discord. The me I’m proud of.” Discord flinched back in surprise at her conviction, filling Sunset with hope. “Let me tell you something about being a bad person, Discord. I lost myself once, I turned into a bad person after years of being unhappy and resentful toward others. I even grew to enjoy inflicting pain on others. When I stole the element of magic, I even stripped people of their souls and imprinted a blank obedience to me upon the empty canvas of their being. But I have also been reformed.” Sunset felt herself placing her hand over her chest. “I was hit by the full power of the the elements of harmony and they didn’t just take my power, they showed me my redemption. In the span of a few seconds, I experienced the love and joy of friendship, and then the disgust for everything I had ever done to hurt another. The elements didn’t scrub my past from me, they gave me the power and experience I needed to overcome myself and be a better person. “I gave up my hate and anger willingly. Yes, sometimes I still feel those things. But there is a big difference between letting angry, jealous, and resentful feelings dictate your life and feeling those emotions for a short period of time. I wasn’t given anything back and nothing was taken from me. I was given a choice, and I chose to be a better person, to stop being evil. And I was rewarded with better friends than I could ever have imagined. Discord gulped as the rest of the girls stood stock still with rapt attention as color slowly seeped into their beings once more. “After I gave up my negative feelings, it took a long time to accept what I had done. It was a long journey, and that journey isn’t over. From time to time, I still wake up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, memories of the cries of others playing over and over in my head. It hurts, Discord, and I never want to cause pain to others again.” Discord sneered, “Yet I offer you relief from that pain and you turn it away. Explain that, you cross species failure!” “Perhaps I am a failure,” said Sunset calmly. “But why would I accept that? Quite frankly, I’m happier than I’ve ever been, or rather, I was before you got here. Now I’m fighting for that happiness, for my friends, and for our freedom.” “You speak of freedom,” spat Discord, “but what do you know of it? Freedom – real freedom – is anarchy, chaos.” “No, Discord,” said Sunset. “Your freedom is in chaos. But when you are full of love and surrounded by real friends, even the darkest prison can be a magical place.” A light began forming around Sunset’s forehead and the symbol of her cutie mark snapped into existence in a magnificent golden tiara. Discord frowned as he picked up his right arm and snapped his fingers, fully intending on teleporting himself to the top of the school where he could mock them and their inability to catch him. Nothing happened. He snapped his fingers again and again. There was still no effect. “Oh, phooey.” Sunset looked up at him with renewed confidence. "Magic’s a funny thing, Discord. This world is void of magic, but you’re a god. If you were in Equestria your magic would be limitless, but here it’s not. But the magic of friendship and harmony, that’s universal. It’s already made you helpless." Discord watched as the light flashed in the other girls. They brought their hands to their chests as their five symbols flared into existence as beautifully crafted necklaces. “This is your last chance, Discord,” said Fluttershy. “Yeah!” yelled Rainbow Dash as the light from all six friends began to grow brighter and stronger. “Get turned to stone, you taxidermy reject.” “Quite,” said Rarity with a simple smug grin. “Oh! If you join us, we can have a party!” Pinkie chirped. “Trust me, parties are much better than being turned to stone!” “Nah,” said Applejack. “I don’t think he’ll listen to us, Pinkie. I think this here is Discord’s last rodeo.” Discord flinched away from the light and covered his eyes. “No! This isn’t over!” As soon as the words left his mouth the six girls rose in the air, enveloped by the pure white light as a multicolored rainbow shot straight for Discord. He felt the pain again, as complete and total order encased his body in stone. He contorted and screamed as his body quickly froze in place. When it was over, Discord could only watch as his vision slowly tilted sideways and he felt himself fall over. The pain had dulled but still took up his entire world. He was barely aware of anything until Sunset stepped in front of him, placing a hand on his head. “Now you realize, Discord,” she said as she patted his head, “that you can twist me, corrupt me, exploit my vices and my past. “But,” said Sunset as she stood to look at her smiling friends, “you will never, ever break me, for I have something wonderful to live for.” Freedom, real freedom.
  24. The audio book for this story is on my channel read by Neighrator Pony; https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SkIYreKuD0w A little filly finds a whole new perspective on her world on the back of a pegasus. http://www.fimfiction.net/story/276653/fish-in-the-clouds https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SkIYreKuD0w 1.Air Show The little filly had two hobbies if you will. But the first was more of birthright than a controllable pastime. Nobody was in any doubt that her connection with water was deep and so very often smelly. If it could be fallen or dived into, she was the pony for the task. It was lucky that she could swim! It could be said that her second hobby was adventure and it certainly invaded her life like few others. And I guess with a name like Cloud she was bound to look upward and wonder at the pegasi drifting past. Ordinarily earth ponies understood that what went up must come down, but for little Fish it was just another exciting 'thing' to explore. Maybe it was no coincidence that one afternoon she found herself sitting in front of a billboard, watching a mare with a step ladder stick up a brightly coloured poster which read; "Air Show!" Sam looked some what alarmed as Fish excitedly displayed the flyer held in her teeth. Many things came out of that school saddle bag and some of the really bad ones did indeed come on paper. Those usually involved a trip to the school house which was awkward, but not distressing. Glyn looked up from his seed catalogue with a smirk. "I wonder if there is a balloon big enough to carry me?" the large black earth pony pondered. Sam now looked even more horrified. "What!" she said, spinning to look at Glyn so fast her tail nearly took the mixing bowl off the edge of the table. "How are you helping here? I've heard so many tales about how my errant daughter only just managed to escape some watery tomb by flailing legs and branch in mouth, but at least she floats! Now you both want to defy gravity?" Glyn looked a little taken aback. "Well I can't do magic," he protested "And who wouldn't want to see the land as the birds do?" Sam could tell by the looks on their faces that logic wasn't going to play a big part in any following argument. It seemed hypocritical anyway. She had pretended to be scornful as a young filly watching Glyn swing on a rope as hard as he could, before soaring a few feet into the village pond. It was these antics that had drawn her to the young colt and to wonder at their future. Sam remembered how it was at school and that silly play ground song. "Sam and Glyn, Sam and Glyn, she's got wedding bells for him!" She had got really mad at the time, but it was so obvious looking back. "I guess you can't escape destiny," she said to her now smiling husband as a chicken made best efforts to fly past the kitchen window. The sudden commotion in the yard was undoubtedly Fish playing at pegasi. The few days passed quickly as Fish tried to stay out of trouble everywhere. She couldn't risk doing something silly for fear of punishment. Being grounded this week would mean literally being grounded. Now though it was really happening! She was standing in line with some of her school friends behind a thick rope as they chattered about how high they would go and how they wouldn't be scared at all! Eventually it was time for the little filly to take her turn in the sky. She danced on the spot as Sam anxiously handed over some bit's before Fish was directed to a pegasus of suitable size. Fish wasn't tall for her age, but she was no lightweight either. The stallion got down on his knees so she could climb on. "Legs go there, head there and don't wiggle about," he said. "I presume you will want to go as far as the moon?" he winked. "Erm," said Fish, but hadn't chance to think about it as they shot into the air gaining height with every powerful wing beat. Fish wanted to hang on and snuggle into the stallions mane for safety, but she couldn't miss the view below. Opening her eyes and looking down she was hit by the rest of the sensation of flying. The wind rushed through her mane as the pony body rose and fell as its feathers caught the air and pulled them upward. "I'm Stratus," he called back, "Where do you live?" Fish pointed a hoof in the general direction she thought she might live. Everything looked so different from above, but after a minute it started to look familiar. It wasn't enough to say that their farm below looked like a toy. She could see the animals and the pond and even her favourite scarf on the washing line. It was more that it looked disconnected from her life right now. Different from what she was experiencing high in the sky. She wasn't frightened now and knew she wanted more. "Loop the loop!" she screamed with delight. Stratus turned his head to look at her, "No can do little filly, this is just a cruise around the village sort of thing." He could see the disappointment in her face though and decided that it was worth a spin. This job was getting old anyway. Banking further away from the farm he noticed a tree topped ridge that would hide them nicely. "Didn't you want to go over there and see something you just thought of," he winked. "Do it!" shouted Fish, her mane and tail sticking out horizontally with the new turn of speed. Stratus was careful to keep a very sedate flight plan as he banked around the woodland. As soon as he was out of sight he dived sharply to pick up speed while flapping hard to make that extra bit. As he neared the ground he flexed his wings to their full span and flipped himself upward. The ground dived away below them as Fish flattened against his back. She looked down to all green, then all blue and then back to green, the world turning over with her stomach. "Yes," she shouted, "that was the best thing ever!" Stratus flew lazily to the same height he had started and came back into view as though he had just extended her trip a little. Just as well because Sam would have been furious if she had seen her only offspring hurtling to the ground and then flying upside down before again hurtling to the ground. They landed just in front of Sam and Glyn. "What a lovely filly you have," he said pleasantly as Fish climbed down. "Yes she is sweet isn't she," the salmon coloured mare replied. "Certainly not the sort to encourage folk to high jinx." Fish grinned unaware of just how messed up her mane had become in the aerial antics. The next highlight was Glyn trying to get into a wicker basket along with a mare sporting a leather flying cap and goggles. He was totally over sized for the balloon and there were some gasps from onlookers as he finally managed to front hoof stand his back legs into it, followed by his bottom. Sam tutted at the scene. "Your father has managed to do some deal for winter storage for that thing in return for a ride. They all shook hooves on the deal before anypony had really considered how it was even possible? Now they are looking for pegasi to form an aerial rescue team should it turn out to be as bad an idea as it looks." It took more heat than expected to raise the balloon, which now began to drift slowly upward. Glyn waved a hoof with a huge smile while taking taunts from some of his neighbours. "I'll be sure to crash into your barn," he shouted down to an old friend. As it was a fairly still day the balloon only drifted a short way away before being towed back by the pegasi. After twenty minutes it was safely back on the ground and tied up. There were then another few minutes of fun while they tried to retrieve Glyn from the basket. It should have been an easy task, but with everypony howling with laughter as they failed to lift him free it was a wonder they got it done at all! Once loose he treated his rescuers to an apple juice each from one of the market carts. This was what it was really about. Although the air show folk would leave with some bits in their pockets it was also an excellent time to move some cash around the village. In return the event would be the talk of the area for a good few weeks. It was a welcome break from weeding and all the other tasks a farm needed to keep it working. 2. Sam in the clouds One evening in the autumn the air show team turned into the entrance to Black Brook Farm. The various carts and vans rumbling along the cobbled yard held everything from bunks and bunting, plus the famous balloon with its basket. This was the balloon Glyn said he could store for the winter in exchange for a ride. What he hadn't told Sam that it was actually two rides because it would need a final flight before being packed away. He hoped to persuade Sam to take a spin. By the time Fish galloped into the farm from some far off exploration Glyn had most of the convoy parked in the Paddock. All sorts of ponies were milling about and some had started to dig a fire pit in the middle. The little filly didn't have long to say hi to everyone before it was bed time. As long as she was quiet she could pretend to be asleep. Her bed was right by the window so she was able to wrap up in her bed clothes and watch the ponies outside as their faces flickered in the fire light. Soon enough she was fast asleep and dreaming of flying. The next day she was running around getting into everything and chatting to the flyers. Stratus mostly hung around with a mare called Ozone. With a coat that shone like metal she looked quick standing still. Continuing the speed theme her tail was cut short as was her left ear. Feeling a stare upon her she turned to see Fish's fascinated expression. "Nobody's perfect," the mare informed her. "You're safe in the sky and safe on the ground. The bit in-between can be tricky" she smiled. Fish gave a nod of understanding. "You flew with Stratus in the summer?" "Yes," came the reply. And then with a whisper and a cautionary look sideways to make sure mum wasn't around, "We looped the loop, but don't tell anyone." Ozone laughed! "I'm sure we can do better than that this weekend." Fishes eyes widened accordingly. All eyes then turned to the arguing coming from the farm house. Glyn was making chicken impressions toward Sam. "Just because you two are daft doesn't mean I am," said the salmon mare. The air shows director was trying to intervene. "It's completely safe madam, we have a well trained rescue crew and I myself have been elevated to the heavens many times." "I'm only concerned with being elevated to the heavens that one final time and that thing looks like a short cut to eternity! Come on Fish, it's breakfast time." By the time Fish had waited patiently and inhaled a bowl of porridge the balloon was half inflated. Glyn came into the kitchen and stood next to Sam. "I promise this will be one of the most amazing things you will ever do," he said softly. "You are about to see the world in a way you can barely imagine in your dreams." She gave him a loving smile. "If you believe in it that much I guess it can't be that bad?" The two earth ponies walked out into the yard with Fish running around them in excited circles. Glyn helped his mare into the basket and kissed her muzzle. "It'll be okay," he said. As they let go of the mooring ropes Sam was amazed to see the ground fall away beneath her as the balloon slowly rose into the air. There was no sense of movement and even the breeze faded as the balloon began to travel across their farm. Turning to look back at the farm house she could see everypony waving to her. Swallowing hard she returned the wave with shaky hoof. It was hard to be scared when so little was happening though. They gently drifted over the last hedges of their farm and then over a neighbours. Then onto a small holding of a friend and over the farm she grew up on. She could easily recognise the pond she had swam in so often as a filly. Passing directly over it she could see the reflection of a much older mare, looking down wistfully over the side of a wicker basket. "Time to head back," said the pilot waving to the pegasi close by. They grabbed a couple of loose ropes in their teeth and began to slowly tow the flying machine back to Black Brooke farm. In no time at all Sam was back in the yard with a cup of tea, reliving all she had seen. "Well, I'm going inside for a rest after all that excitement," said Sam getting up and heading indoors. Glyn turned to look at Fish with a daft grin on his face. "I suppose you will be wanting another trip into the skies?" Fish turned to look at the now deflated balloon. "Arn't I too late for a ride?" Glyns smile got even bigger as Stratus entered the yard with Ozone who was carrying a spare pair of flying goggles in her mouth. Fish now looked like she was made of rubber as she bounced around them in circles! Status wore a stunt saddle, which he did up extra tight. Fish climbed onto it and was tied in so that they moved as one. He wiggled and stretched his wings to make sure he still had full freedom of movement. "Perfect," He said. "If you fall from the clouds we can catch you easily, but if you fall off at ground level, it's not so good." Fish nodded before Ozone put the goggles on her head. "Are they okay," she said gently. "They're fi...." Fish squeaked as Stratus stood up and took off in one swift motion. She heard Ozone laugh behind them and saw the dust of the yard whipped up as she too made for the open air. They were traveling at a steady pace, the fields and trees passing gently below. What they wanted was a good strong thermal to help them gain height quickly. They weaved this way and that, feeling the air with their feathers until a likely hill caught there eye. Making good use of its up draft they began to circle upward to the clouds. Fish had her eyes everywhere as she took in the scale of the land surrounding her village life. "Time to make the ground shake," called Stratus. Ozone grinned and formed up along side him. At this point Fish expected a steep dive, but was quite startled to see them pull their wings tight into their body's . Her stomach felt really weird as gravity became a distant friend and they literally fell from the sky! They hurtled toward the earth like falling rocks. "Now," screamed Stratus as the ground began to get alarming close. Fish bit down on the saddles loop hard to make sure she stayed in place. Both ponies spread their wings and turned a world that was downward into blazing horizontal speed. Keeping up a rapid wing beat they hurtled along a road only a few feet up. The trees flashed past and Fish could see birds behind her breaking cover on either side. As their speed started to fall Ozone led them higher and toward home. Laughing and panting hard they formed up again side by side. "How was that?" She asked Fish. "I didn't know anything could go that fast," came the reply with a massive smile. "I thought my ears would come off!" They travelled back to the farm weaving in and out of the trees to Fish's delight and landed softly in the yard. "Are we happy now?" asked Glyn. But by the look on her face he could tell that she was. Fish just sat there with a daft grin on her face! All too soon it was time for everypony to make their way to their homes for the winter. Wagons were reloaded with the detritus of living on the road and the turf was thrown back into the fire pit. As Glyn shut the gate behind the last wagon he turned to his little filly. "Best not write about that in your memories book incase your mum reads it." said Glyn with a wink. The End Team Idris July 2015
