    Sad Tuning the melody

    I messed the topic, guess I'm still not arrant in the flow. Apologies. Tis another story about mine OC Dawn, written as the response to the social experiment by Flutterpriest on FimFiction: https://www.fimfiction.net/story/421341/just-reply More than two years passed since Bittersweet story, Dawn passed fire and ice and trumpets. One day she got a strange letter. After reading and prolonged hesitation whether to reply or not, she grasps her nerves and... Hither goeth: --- Hi Melody! Nice to meet a beautiful pony (I think everypony making art is beautiful and I’m not talking about the looks only… and mostly) with a beautiful name. It sings. No need to call me Penny… Heh! My name is Dawn. Quite optimistic, isn’t it? I would like to match that name completely… Anyway, that should lessen the awkwardness, shouldn’t it? Awkwardness… For an IT mare, which spends more time with machines than living ponies, it’s almost the second name. Your letter is pretty normal; believe me – the one who reads the fault notifications (with user suggestions) daily. For one who came through an incident with a stalker, awkwardness tends to become the first name even. The same reason makes me the last pony to judge you, completely open or not. I stopped judging ponies since long ago… So, I’m a mare, as I have already said. As for the looks… I have a few scars from the less happy years with my husband my previous life. Nothing too critical though. Truth be told, I learned to judge ponies by the look not. I wish I learned it earlier the easier way. I live in Ponyville. Currently… Actually, I’ve driven half of Equestria hiding from several years ago. Canterlot. A beautiful city… Well, it depends. I’ve seen both sides of it, Melody. I think, regardless of where you are – big city or some village, troubles can find you, even if you don’t seek for them. Sometimes at the least expected moment. And the shady ponies aren’t the worst of them. When the one you lived happily with for a few years turns shady… or I think it’s simply easier to overcome all those, staying closer to Nature… Have you ever thought of moving to Canterlot outskirts at least? It’s not much of a difference for the delivery and agents. But the look, the air. You are lucky, having a beautiful tree under your window, Melody. I remember, we had a brick wall, when we [blot] Well, about me… I live alone in my house. Never thought I could return to that place after the cli two years ago. But that’s all I have and… it brings happy memories. More than Even if it’s too big for a single mare. Employment in a big IT company has its undoubted advantages: I can work remotely, rarely hitting the road to Canterlot or Manehettan branch office. I prefer driving; can’t make myself enter a train compartment for quite a while. In practice, the remote work means typing, typing and again… typing. All day long. Which, with my hobby – writing (although, I don’t have much time for it, unfortunately), gives even more typing at the end of the day. You can’t imagine Writing to you was such a relief. Pen, paper… I hope my hoofwriting is readable at least. Haha! I signed for that Penpal service, because I feel lonely, more and more each day. Even in the middle of the large herd which I’m not a fan of, even if almost everypony here is friendly, despite… I get along with a few mares here, but I’m still behind the glass, sorta… We were going to be open with each other. Well! Do you want to know what I fear most of all, Melody? Not silence. There is a much scarier sound. The sound of the storm and rain drumming the house, when you are inside [blot] The worst thing in my life happened under that “music” Alas, I can’t avoid it, when I’d like to, most often I curl under my blanket hoofing my ears shut. When it’s warm outside, I ran to the open. The rain is not scary there. Often to the field nearby. You can see everything around It is more bearable that way. I know how you feel, Melody. Maybe not to the letter, but… Interesting fact, the most awful things in my life happened to me inside, in the “tranquil and homely” atmosphere, when those I supposed to trust, were near. If you want, I will tell you someday. I’m still working on my trust issues I need to grasp my nerves for that. Outside… It’s big indeed. Enough space for one to escape expect for some help, if it’s needed. Although, I admit it turns out weird sometimes. Even with lots of nice ponies I think I have too much space in my house as well. But that’s different. Never mind. I love how dedicated and inspire you sound, when it comes to your art, Melody. How responsible. I always valued responsibility high, maybe even to it becoming my weakness some tried to abuse Still, it awesome how involved you are in your artwork. Please, Melody, don’t be too involved all the time. No art is too dark, Melody. Even for Equestria. Maybe it’s your agent, failing to track the target audience, not the art. Threatening is not an option, regardless of the situation. Anyway! I got an idea. I happen to know a few art agents The only useful legacy of my husband I’m still on good terms with two of them. Well, if a few e-mails a year can be called that way. Still, they used the company service and… I’ll write you the names, being a painter you know them well most likely. If you are okay with that idea, I’ll suggest them to have a look at your art. Then, well, it will depend on your agent. Any autumn tree painted with soul and feel involved is unique, even if there are millions of them. Mind that coming from an IT mare. The idea with the night scene is… I don’t know how you make the accents visible in night light, but, well, I’m not an artist. I believe you can do that. Although, I see the scene a little differently. I’ll elaborate later. One more idea… Two unrelated to IT ideas a day! Ohhhh, that makes my coat crawl. So, to the point, right? I’m going to be in Canterlot that weekend. Under the certain tree. Simply being there. You won’t mistake. You can see me then. I can’t promise, my lungs allow you to hear me, nor I assume you want that. Do you? You can use that rope properly then, Melody… Throwing one end out of the window, so I can clip another letter to it. Screw that post service. From hoof to hoof. I’m taking a sketchpad with me, a nice change from the keyboard. I’ll tell you my story what I can I can’t promise to be lighter. And then we’ll see. Maybe you want to paint that autumn tree in the moonlight then. And two mares under that tree. Talking. That, of course, doesn’t mean that you and I shouldn’t write any more letters meanwhile. Right now I need at least one. A single word is enough, if you are okay with that idea – simply yes or no. While I have nerves to go You have a friend now, Melody! I’m not pretending to be the best one or simply a good one, only time will show. Just keep going. I care, Dawn P.S.: Speaking of scratched out parts… It took me some effort to actually dare to send this We could make a contest someday!

    Drama A Demons Tale

    This is my first time actually writing a short story or anything at all for that matter. So Id thought I would make it about my OC Daphnes's backstory. Laurel does make a small cameo at the end so she is owned by @chaosprincess . So without further adieu here it is. Welcome, weary traveler I see you somehow managed to get into my humble abode. I am not particularly happy about this, and I probably would have just gotten rid of you at first sight. But I am in a good mood so I will let you stay for a little while. Well, Since your here I might as well be a good host and fix you a drink. So tell me what would you like? He leans his ears forward to hear his guest better. Alright, a cup of tea it is. He says going over and starts to prepare it for his surprise guest. But as he begins to prepare it he feels his guest's eyes fixate on his wings. I see you keep looking at my wings. He sighs giving a somewhat of an annoyed look. You may not believe me but they are just an illusion but my horn is real though. I suppose now you want me to tell you how I got these things. Well, its bit of a long story so go take your bathroom breaks now or perhaps grab a snack if you want. My story begins long ago in a land far away. You see my kingdom was not like the ones you know today. Where love and friendship reign, a fact I get sick thinking about it. Now I started out as what you ponies would call your typical unicorn. As time went on I found out I was not birthed in the way foals are normally born but given form from the hatred in a ponies heart. So a good chunk of my formative years was spent on the streets getting by on what I could for food and shelter. Since no pony would accept a colt like me in their home for reasons I think that is pretty obvious to you. For you, I will divulge to you the reason. In the areas I grew up or lived in the citizens would believe just by judging by my appearance that I was cursed or some harbinger of ill will that will kill all their livestock or their crops. That all changed one day though when a hotshot commander discovered me in his travels. He took me under his wing and after some intense negotiations with the queen, I was made his second in command. For a while there I was pretty happy with my lot in life. My jobs were to train the guards and patrol certain areas of the city. I will have to admit though watching over the market area was my most favorite part. Since the area was pretty lively not to mention the vendors would give me free things like food or other wares. Even with my high-ranking, there were still some ponies that didn't accept me. The rumors kept swirling that I was this abomination and that I was no way near good enough compared to my counterpart. As much as I trusted my right-hand man he still got all the love and admiration from the people that I so rightfully deserved. Why couldn't I get the credit for the fights we won or victories that were earned from my blood and sweat? No, he was the golden boy whom everyone loved. As he talks his eyes start to change slightly his voice getting slightly deeper. Once realizing his temper was getting the better of him he composes himself. Taking a deep breath he says. I do apologize for that little temper flare up that subject still pisses me off to this day. But anyway now back to my story. From that spitefulness, I rejected the old name that I had shared with my brother in arms and renamed myself after a past king, Daphnes. I wanted to make my own identity not one my queen and my comrade told me to have. Embarrassingly though at this point in time I never managed to get what you call a cutie mark. So I used my armor to cover up the fact. But as just as my hope for acceptance was waning there came my first love. That day I was watching the market as I usually did and out of nowhere this mare just charged into me. As I looked up I saw the angry vendor that she was running from. Turns out she stole some bread and tried to make off with it. Seeing a bit of myself in her I decided to pay the vendor for it and along with a few other things. Surprisingly she was not taken aback by my appearance and from there we got to know each other quite well. It even got to the point where we fell in love and shortly after that we were wed. As happy as my married life was I still had matters to attend to at the castle. Even more so now than ever since we were expecting our first foal so I had to make this country safe enough for our little family. Which at this point in time had become quite tense. My kingdom was on the brink of a war with a neighboring province not to mention there was quite the divide going on internally as well. But to make a long story shorter the queen herself held quite the prejudice against me and it did not help matters either that I refused to be her faithful lapdog. The queen would much rather banish a race than actually speaking with them on peaceful terms. As time went on the tensions only got worse. Then the day came that I will never forget. Not because it was a happy one but a tragic one. One day my queen had ordered for me to go on an intelligence mission to get information about a rebel faction that was plaguing the kingdom at the time. Little did I know she had rallied up her men against me. She knew she couldn't eliminate me because of what I was. So she went for the next best thing. I had forgotten something that day at my home so I decided to quickly teleport home to go get it. When I arrived I had to witness the last moments of my wife's life. I ran over and held her watching the last remnants of her life fade away. After she had passed I got to my hooves and looked at the guards standing there. They were profusely apologizing saying the queen had forced them into doing this. No more would I listen to their damn lies. I wanted my vengeance so now I was going to get it whatever means possible. As soon as more bull crap left their lips I eviscerated all of them leaving their blood to paint my walls. I then ran outside as everything faded to black. All I could remember was the sounds of screams and peoples pathetic pleadings for mercy. When I came out of my haze there stood my counterpart. He kept telling me to stand down and that we could work through this together. I was no longer going to bow down to him or anyone else. That was when I charged at him with all my might. From there we battled in the flames of our fallen city. Just as I thought it was my end. A sudden surge of power went throughout my body. My new wings sprung out leaving my adversary frozen in shock. Using that to my advantage I flew up striking him in the face with my blade. Seeing him go down I knew what I had to do next. Flying up I took cover on a high ledge. Looking down I could see the place I called home for so long was now a smoldering ruin. Everything that happened came back flooding my mind with painful images along with a surge of tears. Through my tears, I could not help but notice a faint glow coming from my flank. In removing my armor I saw that dreaded mark. It was a white rose splattered with blood. From then on I would go on wandering from place to place. Knowing I could never go back to the place I once called home again. Well that's it kid did you like my story? Good, I am glad you found some entertainment out of my misery. Hold on he looks behind his guest spotting a certain small gem-eyed pegasus using her wings to make bunny ears above his visitors head. Laurel, were you there the whole time? He sighs but laughs a little at what she's doing. You are so dead when I get to you. You know that right? The mischevious pegasus darts off into the next room laughing a little. Looking over at his guest again well I have to deal with this intruder please let yourself out once you are done. But I will have to warn you if come back I cannot guarantee your safety. Well to da loo Welcome, weary traveler I see you somehow managed to get into my humble abode. I am not particularly happy about this, and I probably would have just gotten rid of you at first sight. But I am in a good mood so I will let you stay for a little while. Well, Since your here I might as well be a good host and fix you a drink. So tell me what would you like? He leans his ears forward to hear his guest better. Alright, a cup of tea it is.

  3. To Love as His Own - Slice of Life, Drama 5,000 words - Completed A prequel to The King of Love Bugs, this modest oneshot follows on the coattails of the S6 Finale, giving a story after the story. Summary: Standing on the ruins of Chrysalis's fallen empire, newly-crowned King Thorax has a long overdue meeting with his former peers. Amidst their discussions, the reborn changelings are met by one of Chrysalis's leftover offspring. Scared and confused, the young drone shuts down towards all but Thorax, who consoles the nymph, and demonstrates the power of sharing love between changelings. Facts & Why You Should Read: Potent levels of fluff and cuteness - forum goers with weak hearts have been warned. Continues off the S6 Finale, giving an 'off screen occurrences' theme to the story and its events. Insights on the changelings, their powers, relationships and their way of life. If you were on the fence about trying the much longer-winded King of Love Bugs, this story is a good appetizer.
  4. Holy cheese and crackers! I'm nearly done with my first actual story! I'm so freaking stoked to share it to you guys and gals and see it go through the meat grinder! You think that I'm kidding lol. Letting Go story link Here is hoping that you enjoy this read as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Cover art will be happening very soon, but for now, I will have to deal with the quick feathers and bird thing i made lol.
  5. Setting: An Alternate Universe where ponies are ranked with unicorns being highest, pegasi being second, and earth ponies being lowliest. In this Alternate Universe, earth ponies are forbidden from playing music. Characters: Officer Laurel Officer Stonehoof Copper Rose Dr. Poppy Realgar Princess Golden Star Story starts in next post Part 1: Officer Laurel strolled the streets of the earth pony part of town. Suddenly, she heard the pleasant sound of music. She flew towards the source of the music, the rooftop of an apartment building. There she saw a band of earth ponies sitting on chairs, playing their instruments. “Guys. You need to go. If the other ones catch you, bad things will happen.” Laurel sternly warned. “And, leave your instruments here. I don’t want them to come searching for them.” The earth ponies understood her warning and quickly went back into the building, leaving their instruments behind. Laurel left proudly, knowing that she might have saved the earth ponies a decade of pain and suffering. “Officer L. You hear me.” A walkie talkie screeched. “Code grasshopper at 400 Steelworks Avenue.” “I’ll be there sir.” Laurel held the walkie talkie button as she spoke. She flew back to the rooftop where the earth pony band played. “Good thing you’re here.” Officer Stonehoof greeted Laurel. “Some roaches were disturbing the purity of music. They apparently left, but they left their instruments behind.” Laurel tried to keep a straight face as Stonehoof spoke. “Let’s bring these instruments back to HQ.” Stonehoof suggested. The rest of the crew agreed with the suggestion. “I’ll call a truck.” The pegasi carried the instruments down the building, and then loaded them into a truck. “Why must we incinerate the instruments?” Laurel asked Stonehoof as she stood before the warmth of the incinerator chute. “Wouldn’t it be more useful to donate them to school children.” “Are you insane?” Stonehoof said as his eye twitched. “These instruments have been dirtied by the hooves of some mud maggots.” Laurel watched as perfectly good instruments were thrown one by one into the incinerator. Quickly, while nobody was looking, she grabbed a small shiny trumpet, and quietly stuffed it into her bag. At home, Laurel held the trumpet, looking at how light reflected off the brass. The weight of the trumpet sat on her hands just as the weight of her feeling sorry sat on her heart. Once, she had been as naive as these earth ponies. As a filly, she had always wanted to help ponies in pain. This is why she wanted to be a pharmacist. Until, she found out that Pegasi couldn’t become pharmacists. Apparently, they weren’t trustworthy enough for the job. This is when she decided to become a police officer. She moved the trumpet around in her hooves, feeling the weight and smooth texture. Suddenly, a sparkle caught her eyes. Laurel turned the trumpet around and saw a small heart carved in with a screwdriver. Maybe this heart was a clue to which pony the trumpet belonged to. Just as she had her dreams stolen from her by society, Laurel did not want society to take away another pony’s dreams.
  6. OOC Link: @Dynamo Pad Kitsune had just setttled in her new home just on the outside of Ponyville. She was really starting to enjoy the slower pace of the little village. She was just starting to get back into the swing of things. She had a few other pieces to finish up but then the concert and play season was over for a few months. She decided it may be time to try and get out there. Put some energy into meeting a few ponies or going to a few town events. She knew she couldn't stay cooped up forever. She bucked up and made her way into the town square. She remembered the little sweets shop and headed straight for it. Having a little chocolate seemed right. As she made her way, she took time to notice how pretty everything was. How quaint it was. How friendly the ponies were. Wishing her well as she passed by. Gripping her bag she took a deep breath to steady her nerves. "Today is a new day."

  8. Laina Charm

    Adventure My story.

    The story of Laina Charm and the suffering of her mother. This is basically my OC's story and my OC is an Alicorn. So if that angers you in any way, feel free to leave. Queen Allura ruled the Kingdom of Orberia to the West of Equestria. Her mother was Queen Serena, the sister of Queen Galaxia. Therefore, Queen Allura was Celestia and Luna's cousin. One day, Allura was walking through her kingdom and witnessing the delight of her citizens due to the Festival of Starlight. A festival that celebrated the coming of the North Stars, flying to the South. Their light creates a purple and blue aura in the sky at night. One day, the Queen of Cloudsdale, Aurora, arrived in Orberia to talk with Allura and brought her Royal Guard with her. The General of the Royal Guard was named Gale Drasten and was always by Aurora's side. The threat of the changelings increased everyday and would soon become one of the the biggest problems Equestria has faced. "Allura, the darkness in the East is spreading. The Changeling kingdom is increasing in number and size everyday. King Zeros is ready to strike at any moment. A war will soon rise and the Alicorn rulers refuse to let any of their citizens lose their lives for it. We have also decided that your generation will not fight." Allura was shocked, "What? Why?" "I pray that we don't but If we all die then at least there will be others to rule afterwards. We know they will lose. What we don't know is if we will remain alive to celebrate their defeat." Allura looked to the floor in dismay as a single tear fell from her cheek. "There will be no cause to celebrate for such a tragic and immense loss." Aurora looked at Allura with a sad smile. "Do not worry, my child. Equestria will be fine and the threat of the changelings will be averted. You and the others will rule with benevolence and dignity." Allura looked up at Aurora and smiled. The breeze of the cool air brushed against her cheek and they began to continue walking across the courtyard. The Sun began to set beyond the horizon and its beautiful light shone for it's last hours. "Allura?" "Yes?" "This may be intrusive but...when was the last time you were courted?" "WHAT?!" "What? You need to. We are all weary and the world is at a dark place right now. Love is just what it needs and... I saw you looking at my General. This may be your chance. A child may be exactly what you need and what your kingdom needs." "I can't. That was Lorelai's line of expertise. Courting has always come easiest to her." "Don't be silly. It's easy. Just try. Trust me when I say that if it's meant to be then it shall be. I meant Ferrara during a thunderstorm and i was talking an evening stroll. He was conjuring them in anger and i calmed him. Destiny. That was how we fell in love. Fate is a powerful thing." "Fine, I will try." A few days went by and Allura constantly saw Gale Drasten. Her heart would race and her pupils would dilate every time. Finally, she bumped into Gale Drasten. His eyes were shimmering pools of clear water. She only wished to swim in them forever. She smiled and let her eyes fall to the ground. "I'm so sorry, your Majesty!" "There is no need to apologize, General." They looked deep into each other's eyes and smiled a smile which seemed like forever yet went in the blink of an eye. Perhaps it was fate. Afterwards, they met in secret many times. Sometimes in the Royal Gardens and others...in Allura's chambers. Their love began to come to light and the citizens smiled at the match. But not all were happy with their love. One pony, a Unicorn named Sultry, wanted the Queen's hand in marriage. He knew he had to get Gale out of the way. But unbeknownst to the kingdom, the Queen was secretly expecting a child. Only Gale, Aurora, Lorelai and Allura knew of the pregnancy. Allura was not leaving the castle as often and Lady Lorelai came all the way from Saddle Arabia just to step in for her sister. As soon as the Queen had her little filly, she could not enjoy the fleeting moment. Lorelai had to take the baby to Saddle Arabia to hide it from the Royal Advisors and Sultry. Queen Allura knew that her time with Gale had already upset the Royal Advisors enough. They met on the night of their daughter's birth one last time. When he left, he was kidnapped by a group of thugs. They brought him to Sultry. It was then that Gale drew his last breath. The next day, the news of a "cult" killing Gale was public. The news of a General soon became wide spread across Equestria. Allura was distraught and Aurora was outraged. She visited Allura and comforted her and spoke with her Advisers to warn them not to anger her or their Queen. Allura's Royal Advisers urged her to marry Sultry. A rich, nobleman with great power. He was perfect. Their forced marriage occurred the next day. The Kingdom knew that Allura did not want this union to happen. In an act of defiance, the citizens wore black for the whole day and performed great mourning sessions which would only occur when a member of the Royal Family dies. Though Allura was blessed that her people would do that for her, there was nothing she could do. Her marriage to Sultry would ease the ponies of Equestria. She sensed a change of an Era where ponies did not truly want Alicorns as much as they used to anymore. Just a few days later, the War between the Changeling army and the Alicorn rulers broke out. No Alicorn survived, even losing the greatest Wizard known to Pony kind. When the war ended, the eldest child of every Alicorn ruler that fought, ascended the throne. The whole of Equestria was silent. Celestia was now Queen, yet chose to remain a princess in fear of being treated more or different to any other pony. She also was devastated and chose the title to remain in a state of constant mourning for the deaths of the "true" rulers. Eros (Cadence's father) took the Crystal Empire's throne. Princess Lapis took the throne of Cloudsdale. At this very moment, every Alicorn lived in fear of what creature would lurk out of the shadows and claim Equestria for themselves. Without their parents, they believed themselves to be weak and unfit to rule. Moreover, many of the rulers were afraid of uprisings against the Alicorns. This fear was also fueled at the fact that Saddle Arabia and Appalia were both ruled by non-Alicorns and were thriving thus giving many ponies the impression that Alicorns weren't needed anymore. Alicorns were too powerful and the ponies were afraid that they could turn evil and destroy them. Only one was truly needed to protect them. Decades had pasted and the Original wielders of the Elements of Harmony were destroyed. Chrysalis was corrupted. Eros is dead. Discord was frozen in stone. Sombra was destroyed. Luna was banished to the Moon. Celestia was the only remaining wielder. Cloudsdale and Appalia (now named Apple Loosa) no longer have a ruler and the Crystal Empire has faded into legend. All the Alicorn rulers fled Equestria and went into the North when the uprisings began in Cloudsdale and Sendaria. All but Celestia and Allura. With no other ruler in Equestria to take charge of the other kingdoms, Celestia took the rule over Equestria in it's entirety. Cadence was forced to live in Canterlot with no title to show when her mother was killed in the uprisings in Cloudsdale. Queen Allura remained in Orberia. The desolate kingdom was no more. The subjects went to live in Canterlot, Cloudsdale or Ponyville ever since Stormcrow was born. Her vain son was a disgrace. His egotistical ways were undignified. He showed no respect for his mother, only seeing her as a common whore (something he pleasures himself with). Allura lived in the torment of a marriage without love. Lady Lorelai lived in Saddle Arabia with her niece, Laina Charm. Everyday was a day without friendship for Laina. Living in secrecy was a cruel punishment. She would dream of the day she would return to her mother and rid her of Sultry and Stormcrow. Her anger towards her half-brother stemmed from his arrogant and racist attitude. He believed himself to be superior to all non-Alicorns, be it Pegasi, Unicorn, Dragon or Griffin. Life in Saddle Arabia is repetitive and tedious. Wake up, fetch the water, go to the market for food, clean the house, prepare dinner, go to sleep. One long list. Laina loved her Aunt and praises her for her kindness. She knows that she is risking her whole authority and reputation. Laina lives in a small cottage just off the border of the city. It's beauty was breathtaking. Everyday, before dinner, Lorelai would arrive from the Palace of the Sultana Yasmin. She would teach Laina the most advanced ways of magic. Lorelai's expertise in Necromancy was unmatched. Her teachings lasted an hour. Laina wished to once again practice her flying lessons when she was a filly. The fun they had. They had to stop when Lorelai's duties in Saddle Arabia became much more important. Alicorns were under strict control besides Celestia. Allura was out of reach and Cadence and Laina were shut out from the world for their safety. Laina made dinner a little earlier today due to it being her 20th Birthday. Once Lorelai came home they talked over dinner. "Happy Birthday, my darling." "Thank you, Aunt Lorelai." They resumed their eating. Laina looked up nervously at Lorelai eating her dinner. Her thoughts were running wild. Finally she was an adult. She had built up the courage to finally ask Lorelai her dying question. Lorelai felt Laina's eyes wondering and without looking up from her food, said: "What is it, child?" "Nothing. It's just, I was wondering...if I could leave Saddle Arabia." Lorelai almost chocked on her dinner. "What?" "Auntie, I'm 20 years old. I should have left home by now." "And where would you go?" "I don't know. To Canterlot? I want to explore this world." "Hmmm." "Please, Aunt Lorelai, Cadence is a year younger than me and she lives in Canterlot, on her own." "Cadence lives with Celestia. As you do with me." "Please, Aunt Lor..." "No! I will hear no more about it." Laina looks down at her food, fighting back tears. Lorelai looks at her with a solemn look, fighting back the urge to tell her that she wants to leave as well. "Laina, please. I wish it didn't have to go this way. I wish you could be out there exploring the world. But you can't. Your existence is a secret that cannot be shown to the world. Cadence moved to Canterlot to be under constant supervision by Celestia and because her mother died. There are creatures in this world who want to take Cadence. Her powers as an Alicorn are too valuable and she would be much easier to defeat and kidnap then Celestia or I. Her presence is a constant threat to those dark creatures that want Equestria for themselves." "I wish someone would kidnap Stormcrow," Laina mutters. Lorelai pauses before whispering, "As do I." They were almost at the end of their dinner when Lorelai speaks once again. "Celestia has decided to send her best pupil to Ponyville, tomorrow." Laina was puzzled by this information. "Why would she do that?" "It is unknown to many. But I fear that it has something to do with Nightmare Moon's return." "Luna is to return!" "Nightmare Moon! It's name is Nightmare Moon. Luna is not a monster." "But why would Celestia allow such a thing to happen?" "She's not. She is powerless to stop it. One can only be banished for so long before they find a way back. It is said that the Stars will aid in her escape." "If Nightmare Moon is to return, what will Celestia do?" "I don't know. The pupil may be involved with or without it's knowledge of what is to come." A day past and Ponyville was preparing for the Summer Sun Celebration. Laina would always watch out of her window, awaiting the radiant Sun to rise forth and claim the sky. It was the closest she had ever gotten to meeting her mother's cousin. She always felt an admiration for the ruler of Equestria. To be under such pressure and to have faced so much hardship without anyone understanding surely should have broken her. Her strength was truly a sight to behold. Hours had past and Laina realized that not only had the Sun not risen on time but her aunt had not yet arrived home for magic practice. Laina began to worry. She walked to the door and looked out of the window beside it. The city was quiet and the lights were dimmed. Not a sound was uttered. A blurred figure soon became visible from the distance. It was running and fast. It was running towards the cottage. Laina backed away from the window and prepared for the door to be struck down. Nothing. Still nothing. Quiet. BANG! Lorelai came through the door with a worried expression and was breathing heavily. "Princess Celestia has been captured!" "What?!" "Nightmare Moon is back!" Laina took in the information before questioning, "What are you going to do?" Lorelai looked up with utter confusion. "What do you mean?" "Surely, you and my mother would do something. You are the only other Alicorn adults besides Celestia and Luna. Cadence and I would do what we ca..." "Enough! Your mother cannot do anything. She is already weakened. And you and Cadence will not be shown to Equestria so blatantly as if to show off your powers. It would be seen as challenging all the evil in this world. And I must stay in Saddle Arabia. My duty lies here. Alicorns no longer take precedence in this world. To Equestria, one Alicorn is enough. I don't know even what i would do. The ponies might see it as a threat. To see another Alicorn using her powers. It is scary and might compel them to rebel once again." "No! Surely, with great power comes great responsibility. As Alicorns, it is our duty to die for the ponies of Equestria. Even if it means killing our own to protect them." "You may be right but you must underst..." "NO! I'VE HAD ENOUGH! My whole life, I spent locked up in this cottage. I want a life that's true. My grandparents died for Equestria and kept it from evil. Now, Equestria see fit to be against Alicorns? What justice is this? I will not have it. I'm leaving." "What? No. You cannot leave. Where will you go?" "Orberia." Laina's P.O.V: The last thing I saw was my aunt crying out my name from the cottage. With all her powerful magic, not even she could stop me from leaving. I have to meet my mother. I will save her. It was a two day journey. All I had was my satchel, filled with a loaf of bread, a pouch of water, and ten gold bits. I was able to hide my wings. Aunt Lorelai taught me how. It took days but eventually I got the hang of it. Aunt Lorelai taught me almost everything I know. I missed her. But I had to do this. My mother needs me and I need her. Once I free her, we can save Equestria together. Celestia needs us. I passed a strange market. It was filled with trinkets from across Equestria and beyond. Yak horns, Dragon claws, Phoenix feathers, Hippogriff tails. It was so cruel. The creatures running the stalls were unlike any I had seen in my textbooks before. They were horribly deformed with tentacles for ears and mud for a face. They all differed in someway. I went to a stall selling food but it was not what I expected. They sold octupi and squid livers and dog feet. Eventually, I found some bread and Flash Bee honey. It is said to give an extra zing! It cost 5 gold bits. Far too much if you ask me. You could get the same stuff for 2 gold bits in a Saddle Arabian bazaar (market). I finally left with no trouble befalling me. But I did feel the presence of eyes trained on me the whole time I was at the market. I trod through a sea of shipwrecks covered in thick ice. The cold bit at my hooves and I felt my mane turn rigid. I cast a warming spell but it only did so much. I knew what I had to do. I would have to light myself on fire. It was the only way, I joked sarcastically in my head. As I past a red and black ship, I heard a rumble. I stopped. If there was any trouble, I could dispel it. Aunt Lorelai taught me magic in combat. With my knowledge of it, I say I could fight off two or three ponies. No more and nothing bigger. Another rumble. The ship beside me began to move. Is that possible? No. Is it? No, of course not. Nope, it moved again. It's moving. How is it moving? The ship began to settle the way a ship normally would on water. It had caused cracks in the ice to allowed the water through. A sweeping of purple magic turned the ship into a beautiful violet and black ship with fine wood and beautiful sails. It was renewed. A figure dangling from the mast. It was a light blue mare with a bright, violet mane. Was she friend or foe? Her horn was longer then most Unicorns, like that of an Alicorn. She called down to me. "Alright?" "What?" "I said: ARE YOU ALRIGHT?" "Yes." "What's your name?" "What?" "Oh bugger me, this one's bloody deaf. WHAT'S YOUR NA-You know what?" With that, the mysterious mare jumped down from the mast and I looked up in shock as she was about to hit the ground. Just before she hit the hard ice however, she cast a spell to levitate herself in the air and slowly bring her to my level. "My name is Sapphire. And you are?" What should I say? My spell to hide my wings were still in effect. What would she do? If she wanted to fight me, she could. She seems powerful enough. And a pirate. I might be a good trophy or something to sell at the market. "Hello? Ok. Don't tell me. It's fine. You look lost. Are you?" "I guess." "It speaks! I'm from Canterlot by the way and I'm 20 years old. I'm a pirate looking for a ship. And I found one. What about you? It would be nice to know something." I need to tell her something. I'll tell her the truth. No, don't.Tell her. Don't! "My name is Laina Charm, I'm 20 years old and I'm from Saddle Arabia. My father was from Cloudsdale. My mother is a forgotten kingdom called Orberia. And I am an Alicorn." Idiot. "No you ain't. I don't think you noticed but you..." Her eyes widened as she looked to see my wings which I now revealed. Fool. "Is your mother or father royalty by any chance?" "My mother is." "Nice. My grandma was Royalty. A Royal pain in the arse. Luckily, she's dead now. Old bat. Her name was Grammy Granite. She loved rocks. She used to eat them. Until she lost her teeth. Then she would just suck them. Do you need a ride?" "The whole sea is frozen." "Not when you have magic. I am quite advanced in fire and water spells. They are the best combo. But, I wouldn't mind the help?" "Of course!" "Great, so where are you headed?" "I was going to meet my mother for the first time." "First time?" "I had to leave the kingdom when I was born. She wasn't married to my father. I was born in secret. Then my aunt took me away for my safety and raised me in Saddle Arabia." "Who's your aunt?" "Lady Lorelai." "Oh, bugger a Dragon. That woman is your aunt? Cheese and crackers, that woman is scary. The whole Mistress of Death thing. So cool. I would love to meet her one day. I do admire her so." "You do?" "Yeah. She's amazing. Her magical power can't be matched. I wish I had her magic. Anyways, let's get to work." We got on board the ship and prepared our spell. Sapphire counted to three and on the third, we let out an inferno of fire and ember. The ice began to thaw until nothing remained but water. We set sail. Soon, i would meet my mother. I would rid her of Sultry and Stormcrow forever. But who knows how powerful Stormcrow is? What if he beats me? What if i can't help my mother? What if i only make things worse? "Who's Stormcrow?" I turn around, suprised by the intrusion. "What?" "Oh sorry, you were thinking aloud weren't you." "Stormcrow is my half-brother. A vain, racist Alicorn." "Another Alicorn? Gosh, I thought there would be a shortage of Alicorns ever since they fled Equestria and traveled to the Haven Lands." "The what?" "The Haven Lands. It is said to be a mysterious land beyond the Mountains of Storms that only Alicorns can travel to. When an Alicorn dies, they go to the Haven Lands." "I see. I never knew about that." "You know, I did hear a rumor that when Chrysalis took the role of Queen of the Changelings, King Otis, Queen Lapis and the others tried to kill her. A bit foolish, since she can't die unless she says so." "That's strange. Wouldn't they know that? Anyways, how did you become a pirate? You must have been a well-off pony since you came from Canterlot." Sapphire looked to the ground. "When I was 15, I fell in love with an Earth pony named Oakwood. My parents hated our love, deeming him unfit as he wasn't a Unicorn. A bunch of bull crap if you ask me. We ran away together. We found a ship and sent sail for the Unknown. We were going to explore everything. One day out at sea and our trouble began. We came across Charybdis. She was the great whirlpool monster. Oakwood told me to steer the ship away. I did it too fast. He fell off the ship and was eaten by that sea-bitch. I lost everything that day. It was only a few days later when I crashed from not knowing how to sail. I ended upon an Island named the Isle De Muerta. There, I met a witch. She looked like a zebra but with a curved horn and tribal tattoos. Her name was Calypso. She was so beautiful, like a Mermare. She taught me the most advanced magic and how to be a pirate. I owe her everything. Now, I'm here." "I'm sorry for your loss." "Oh, it ain't anything, doll! He is in a better place." "You know, you are the first friend I have ever had." Sapphire paused and looked at me with kindness in her eyes. "That's the greatest honour...my princess." "Haha! Stop it. I'm not a princess. Well I am but that's not the point..." "You said your father was from Cloudsdale. What happened?" "He was murdered by the pony who wanted to marry my mother." "I'm sorry." We were silent for a few seconds when: "Don't say a word.." I stop and look into her eyes. She is scouting the waters. She walks close to the rails. As I follow, I begin to hear a quiet humming. It soon turns to a melody. "Do you hear that? That is the song of the Mermares. We're safe. Mermares only eat stallions. With mares, they let out a beautiful song." This is how I imagine the song of the Mermares. I personally love it. You can listen to it while reading if you want. pirates_of_the_caribbean_4_soundtrack_hd_8_mermaids_hans_zimmer_mp3_1866.mp3 As i watch the moving waters, i begin to see silhouettes of unicorns with fish tails. Their voice is so soothing. I move backwards, away from the water. My eyes began to droop close as my body sways from side to side until...THUD! The last thing i hear is Sapphire's voice shouting my name. My eyes begin to open and i squint at the blinding light. Dozens of crystals hang from the ceiling and as i look around, i soon realise that i'm in a cave. I can smell the scent of the salty sea and i see a unicorn walking towards me. Sapphire? No. It's a zebra...with a horn? A curved horn! How strange. She was beautiful with red, tribal tattoos covering her body and a sea-blue ragged dress. She begins to talk in an accent as beautiful as her appearance. "Rest, child. You are weary." "What happened?" "Your immune system is weak. It seems to me that you have rarely left the safety of your home." "Can you help me?" "Do not fret, my dear. I will fix you with a simple elixir. Drink this." I took the bottle with my magic and drank all the contents of the elixir. It tasted like sweet milk, sprinkled with honey and butter. "Where is Sapphire?" "She is waiting outside." I look to the opening that lead out to a beautiful view of the sea and all its glory.I turn back to see the zebra hunched over a table of potions and scrolls. I get up from the table of rock and walk slowly towards her. "You're Calypso, aren't you?" She turns her head to the side. "Yes." "The great sorceress who taught Sapphire everything she knows." "I taught her nothing. It is the pupil who allows themselves to be taught and therefore absorbs all the knowledge on their own. You. You are the lost princess." "I was thinking about something Sapphire told me. It was very peculiar. She said that water and fire were the perfect combo. How do you teach someone to wield both fire and water in harmony together yet they are so opposite?" "Ah...look upon my dress and my tattoos. Both red and blue. They mix, countering each other in perfect harmony." "But i don't understand, how can you find harmony or peace in something so different? Surely, they repel each other." "On the contrary, my dear. You must have both water and fire to have balance and balance is peace. Darkness and Darkness cannot make Light. It simply makes more Darkness. You need two different things to make something new and wonderful." "That is very interesting." "My dear, above all, you should know the most. You are the granddaughter of the great Water Queen, Serena and the Fire King, Solaris. You have Water running through your veins and Fire surging through your heart. Your body is in peace with itself." I couldn't believe what i was hearing. I rarely heard of my grandparents. My aunt never gave me textbooks on the Alicorns. She thought it would make me rebel. "You wish to reunite yourself with your mother. I will help you." "Why?" "You are a friend of my adopted daughter and...i was once a mother. But my daughter was taken from me by the cruel, untamed seas. I can get you to Orberia. I will find the potion but it may take some time to prepare." "Thank you." I leave Calypso to search for the potion and i walk out from the entrance. As i leave, i am gifted with a great gush of salty wind. To my left, Sapphire is setting the sails in her boat. I travel down to meet her. The island is small with one small port for Sapphire to leave her ships. "Sapphire!" "Laina! You're okay! Good. I trust Calypso kept you good company." "Yes. She is going to send us to Orberia." "I know. Laina, there is someone i would like you to meet." "Who?" "Gabriella. She is a great friend of mine. GABRIELLA!" A great beast came swooping down from the mast. It's wings were enormous and a wondrous shade of light blue. Her eyes were deep pools of water. She was magnificent. "YOU'RE A GRIFFIN?!?!" "Haha! The name's Gabriella." "The name's Laina. I've never met a Griffin before. It's so nice to meet you." "Woah there, Laina! Don't smother her." "Haha, Sorry. Just got a bit excited." "It's fine. So, are you ready?" "YUP!" "My little ponies! I have found it!" We race to the cave's entrance. I was beyond excitement. I flew to the hole and was greeted by Calypso holding a phial with a sea blue liquid. She gave it to me and i held it within my aura. Sapphire was next, followed by Gabriella. Gabriella eyed the phial quizzically. "So this will get us to your homeland?" I turned to Calypso, expecting her to answer. "It shall. With it's magic, it can teleport you to the place you desire. Once Laina drinks it, you both must grab on to her." I looked at Calypso with grateful eyes. "Thank you, Calypso." She smiled and gestured me to drink it. "Now hurry. You do not know how much time we have to save your mother." I nodded and drank the contents of the phial. As soon as i had finished, i felt a claw on my right wing and a hoof on my left. A great magical wave began to swirl around us until it engulfed all of us. A bright flash was the last thing i saw until the water evaporated and we stood on sandy ground. I took in my surroundings and my eyes fell on a decrepit gate. It was as big as full grown Dragon and had two statues on either side. One depicted a beautiful female Alicorn with a swirling mane and tail of crystal water while the other was a dashing male Alicorn with a mane and tail of burning, ember fire. I walked closer until I was a breath away from the gate. I opened it with a nudge and walked through. Gabriella and Sapphire followed close behind, weary of anything strange. Not that anything was not strange. We walked past hundreds of house, brought down by time and reduced to mere bricks stacked together. We continued to walk until we were faced with the full splendor of an ancient castle. No guards? No anypony? The whole area was desolate. Gabriella walked up beside me. "What happened to this place?" I replied, "My aunt told me that once Stormcrow, my half-brother, was born the ponies of Orberia were fed up of the reign of Sultry. They loved my mother but they betrayed her in her most dire time of need." "I'm sorry. My parents are both dead. They were killed by Nightmare Moon. She was on a killing spree when there were those who openly defied her. Princess Celestia was terrified for days until she banished her." "What? But Princes Celestia immediately banished her on the day Luna turned into Nightmare Moon." "Yeah, that's not true. The Moon was up for days. She terrorized the villages and killed those who opposed her. Celestia hid in Castle Cosmos in the Everfree Forest until she knew it was time. She had to banish her sister." "I see." I can't believe it. The pain it must have caused her to banish her own sister. I wish i could swap places with her and i could banish Stormcrow. We walked up to the doors of the castle. They were wide open. We stepped inside and were suddenly greeted with a gush of color and gold. It was beautiful. The mix of red and blue with clashes of gold and silver. We walked to the centre of the vast room. I set my eyes on the throne. A giant chair carved out of the finest marble. It was beautiful and covered with red velvet cushions with gold trim. As i reached the throne, hooves sounded from outside. We all turned in unison and prepared ourselves for any attack. A purple hoof came first until a beautiful mare walked through the door. "Aunt Lorelai!" Lorelai turned to me and was overjoyed. "My dear Laina! I'm so happy to have found you...with a Griffin and a Unicorn?" "They're my friends." "I see. My child, we must leave." "What? No, my mother is here and i am going to see her." "Please, Lai..." "NO! I will find my mother and i will free her from Sultry." "You're right. We are here anyways. What is your plan?" "Well, you and I can go through the left corridor and Sapphire and Gabriella? You head through the right." Sapphire finally speaks up. "Let's go!" Lorelai and i began to walk towards the dimly lit aisles.. The corridors were long and covered by numerous portraits of famous rulers, wizards, witches and Nobility. One picture caught my eye. It showed Lorelai and Allura laying on the ground with Celestia as fillies. My grandparents and Celestia's parents sat on cushions as Queen Galaxia held Luna in her hooves. They were beautiful creatures. So majestic and omniscient-looking. Lorelai noticed me eyeing the wonderful portrait. "They painted that on the day Luna was born. We were only a few years old. That was over a thousand years ago." I looked at her, shocked. I knew that Alicorns have prolonged lives but i never truly thought about my aunt's age. We continued to walk down the corridor until we heard a soft humming coming from a room. We poked our heads around the door to see two mares in a giant, lavish bed. There was a male unicorn looking into the mirror and humming to himself. I looked away from the room to my aunt. She was frozen in her tracks, looking at the stallion. "Aunt Lorelai?" She looked at me with sad eyes, almost brimming with tears. I had never seen my aunt cry. "Who is that stallion?" "That filthy Unicorn is your step-father." "What!" As soon as i said that, i realised my mistake. He had heard me. We quickly back away but it was too late. "Who's there? Show yourself!" Lorelai and i came forth from the shadows. Now the two mares had woken up and attempted to cover themselves with the sticky, bed sheets. I looked upon the stallion with contempt. He looked quite young. Perhaps in his late 30s. I turned to Lorelai and saw the hatred in her eyes. She spoke in a voice that I had only heard once before. It was named the Canterlot voice and the first time I had heard it, it was because I had pushed by a stallion in the markets when I was young. He started to cry afterwards. "How dare you! Who do you think you are? Sleeping with these common whores while my sister lays in an eternal torment everyday! Your kind do not get to show such disrespect to us!" I realised now what Lorelai was doing. She was a regal Alicorn who cared for all ponies. But she also believed that Alicorns deserve the utmost respect due to them practically risking their lives to protect Equestria. Alicorns are feared by most other non-pony kingdoms for their power. Many creatures want us dead and to have Equestria for themselves. Therefore, our protection of the ponies put us at risk of murder. "Ponies like you don't deserve our protection! You should give us your full devotion but we are kinder than that so we only ask for your kindness in return. We die for you and you ponies seem to think nothing of it! I shall show you true power! I shall show you death!" As she said that, she let out a dark, bolt of smoke. But before it could pierce his heart, i deflected it with a force-field. "Laina? What are you doing?" "This unicorn is evil, yes. But i will not let you stoop to his level." I turned to Sultry and gave him my best death-stare, "You killed my father and for that, i can never forgive you. Go and take your sluts before i kill you myself!" Sultry ran leaving the defenseless mares by themselves. Typical. The mares got out of bed and bolted for the door. "Well done, Laina. Your mother would be proud. She cherished life, only harming a soul when absolutely necessary. The powers of Death did not allow me the same choice." "Aunt Lorelai, do not mistake your element to be you. The element is a reflection of your power. We are not our power. There is good in everyone. Come on, let's find the others." We exited the room and headed back the way we came. I think of what life would have been like if my father had never died. If my parents married and i lived as a princess. Constantly, I also think of my favourite witch, Pandora the Hippogriff. I remember her story like the back of my hoof. She lost both of her parents as a child to a dark plague. Ever since, she devoted her life to the brewing of elixirs and potions to aid others. She helped stop the plague from wiping out the whole of Terabithia. She was gifted with a necklace that held the powers of the Wind and Sky. Perhaps, though losing your parents is a horrible thing, it doesn't have to remain that way. Good can come from terrible things, if one only wishes to seek it. The light is darkest before the dawn. However, Pandora was murdered by the townsfolk after they accused her of leading the Changelings to them. A crime that she didn't commit. The Changelings never came and there was no evidence to claim. But tell a big enough lie and soon it will turn even the most sane ponies to believing in silly superstitions. Finally, we arrived at a ballroom with Sapphire and Gabriella. "Sapphire, did you find anything?" "No. We passed a few rooms but they were all destroyed." "I see. Aunt Lorelai, have you ever been here before? Don't you know where my mother would be?" "I lived here as a child but it is very different. That was over 800 hundred years ago. It has changed since then." "What about upstairs? We might find your mother's bedroom there.", Gabriella added. "Brilliant." We teleported to the top of the stairs with Lorelai's magic. We walked on and on until we found a room with the door slightly open. I opened the door fully and saw a bright pink stallion with his wings spread out and using his horn to hold something. His eyes were closed as he lay in bed and moaned loudly. Sapphire destroyed our silence. "Oh, sweet Celestia." Stormcrow covered himself with his blankets and looked at us with a mixed expression of anger and surprise. "Who are you! And why are you in my room! "I am your aunt! Now stand up straight and present yourself with some dignity. What kind of Alicorn are you?" As Lorelai said that, she spread out her wings in a threatening gesture to assert her dominance. So cool! "My aunt?" "Did i stutter? STAND UP!" Stormcrow immediately got up with a terrified face. Thankfully, his little, little, little friend had disappeared. "Why are you here?" At this point, i decided to make myself known. "I ask the questions here. I am your half-sister, Laina. I have spared your father but he has fled and you will never see him again. I can't imagine why you would care though. Anyways,I am here for my mother. You won't get in our way. If you do, I will kill you and I will show no mercy. Ponies like you don't deserve. You couldn't redeem yourself even if you wanted to. You blew that chance when you were rude to my mother. Common whore? You're one to talk. You probably sleep with every mare you meet." "Kill me? I'd like to see you try." As he said that, I let out a stream of blue magic. He flew to the ceiling and i met him there. Then, a great battle ensued. Lorelai let a black bolt head straight to him but he dodged it. I told her not to fight. He was mine. I conjured a ball of fire and it hit his tail, burning it completely. He was enraged.He began to lose control and missed almost every attack. Finally, I struck him down. He fell in a heap, too pained by the injuries to get up. I walked over to my friends and aunt. "Go find my mother. I will finish him." "LAINA!" As i heard Sapphire scream, I saw her leap in front of me to be blasted with a pink bolt sent from Stormcrow. I screamed, "Sapphire!" I sent one last bolt for his head, delivering a final blow to a disgusting creature. I fell down to Sapphire's side. She smiled up at me as I wept. Gabriella had now come to the floor next to me. "Go. Find your mum. And tell my mum that I love her." "Which one?" I asked. "The one who cared for me." I cried uncontrollably as her eyes began to drift close. Gabriella held tight to me and sobbed silently. Aunt Lorelai used her magic to levitate her off the ground. "She will meet your mother with us. Then she will have the funeral of a Queen." I smiled up at my aunt, with eyes blurred by my tears. We got up and walked out of the room. We saw a room with a female Alicorn, as beautiful as daylight, laying in a small bed. Tear marks covered her cheeks and were red from rubbing them. I turned to Lorelai and Gabriella. "I will go in alone and take the form of a unicorn. Then, when I show her who I truly am, you will both enter with Sapphire." They both nodded and I used my magic to hide my wings and change my coat colour to grey. I walked in as if I lived here. My mother heard the hoofsteps and looked up. She was puzzled. I guess the only other mare she ever saw was a whore. "Good evening. I am sorry to inform you that your husband has fled the kingdom and your son has been killed." Rather then look upset, she looked even more confused then ever. "Who are you? And what happened to them." "Your husband was scared by your sister, Lorelai. Your son was killed by your daughter when he killed her friend." Her eyes began to water once more. "My sister and daughter are here?" As I said yes, I removed the spell and displayed my wings in full view. Lorelai and Gabriella came in with Sapphire. My mother was crying without end now. My aunt carried Sapphire and placed her on a sofa. I ran to my mother with my aunt and we hugged her with all our might. Her tears fell to our shoulders. "My beautiful girls." "I'm older than you," Lorelai said as she pulled herself away. "By two years. Hardly a difference. Who's that? A Griffin?" "She's my best friend." "Last time I met a Griffin, he tried to marry me," My mother recalls. "I remember. But then I got you out of there." My aunt retorts. They laugh and my heart is overjoyed. I hardly ever saw my aunt happy and knowing that she was at her happiest with my mother was a gift to behold. "What's your friend's name?" "The name's Gabriella, your majesty." "There is no need for that, my dear." "She was friends with my friend, Sapphire, who was killed by Stormcrow." "That pony was a disgrace of my flesh and blood. I assure you that your friend will have a funeral fit for Royalty." With that, we left the room as I carried Sapphire. I stood next to Gabriella. "I'm sorry. I understand that you knew her far better then I ever did." "It's fine. She died like she wanted. Protecting those she loved. Did she tell you how we met?" "No." "I ran away from Griffon Stone when my parents tried to force me into marrying this pompous brat. I flew away and ended up in Horseshoe Bay. She docked there and brought me with her. She taught me swordfighting and how to sail. I lived with her and Calypso for a few years until I left and got my own boat. She's called the Navy Mast. She never let's me down. From then, I pillaged the ships of rich, noble stallions with enough money. We are the greatest pirates of the sea. My crew are currently sailing across the seas." "You trust your crew to keep your beloved ship safe?" "Of course. Many of them are Griffins who abandoned their lives. Others are creatures from across Equestria. Four Ponies, a Yak and a Dragon. My first mate, Gillian, sails the Navy Mast to Marina Harbour in Saddle Arabia and near the Arimaspi Stalactites. Laina? Is it possible that Sapphire could actually be buried out at sea as she would have wanted, with her crew and Calypso." "Of course." My mother called upon me. I trotted to her as Aunt Lorelai went to talk with Gabriella. "You are so beautiful, and your wings are gorgeous. Your aunt has told me that you are brighter than most Alicorns we knew at our age." "I doubt that." "Don't be so modest." After a short pause, my mother's smile saddened. "Mother?" i asked. "I am so sorry. I should never have let you go. I should have kept you here with me." "No. If you did, i would have constantly been under scrutiny by Stormcrow and Sultry. It was i who have failed. I should have helped you sooner." My mother turned to me with a stern face. "No! You could not have helped me. I can handle them. You have done nothing wrong. You freed me now and I am grateful for that. I am so happy to be with you now. Your father would have loved to be here as well." I smiled at her and she returned it to me. We continued to walk until we reached the decrepit statues of two Alicorns. "Those are your grandparents." My mother said, "The Alicorns of Fire and..." "Water." I replied. She looked at me with a surprised look and smiled. "Well somebody is a know-it-all!" My mother laughed. We walked through the desolate villages. The old houses gathered dust. Cracks formed in the windows and webs engulfed the roofs and doors. The Sun had disappeared with the radiant glow of the Crescent Moon taking it's place. The whole atmosphere was deathly quiet besides the sounds of Gabriella and Lorelai talking. The pavement was cracked and worn, with weeds sticking about everywhere. "Your aunt has also informed me of Nightmare Moon's return. Celestia has gone missing?" "It seems so. What should we do?" "Laina, I know you what to fight and help Celestia but i trust Celestia has everything under control." "That isn't good enough. What if Nightmare Moon kills ponies? Who protects Equestria if Celestia is missing? I thought that was what Alicorns were for. To protect the ponies." "You are absolutely right but listen to me, if the world saw you or Cadence then we would risk the lives of many ponies. Equestria is already under threat since Celestia is the only one protecting it. With two child Alicorns, it would not only anger the monsters of the dark but urge them to attack. Our parents were at war with the dragons of the South-West for two generations of dragons. If the Dragons saw you and Cadence, they would only see two easy targets to weaken the Alicorns. We already have an Alicorn queen who is ready to attack at any moment with her army of Changelings. There is nothing we can do. Your aunt and I will be there to take the throne only if Celestia is...incapable of doing so." "I still don't understand. Why can't you and Aunt Lorelai protect Equestria whilst Celestia is missing?" "The pony officials. They don't want us anymore. As soon as Celestia's reign is done, they hope for a Unicorn, Pegasus or Earth pony to rule. Though we came and made Equestria a better place, we also put a huge target on it and caused a lot of strife. They don't want Alicorn Rulers anymore but they wouldn't dare defy Celestia. They are afraid of what she might turn into. They have their armies and they have authority figures. They "don't" need us anymore. We came to imbue balance to this land. We did not care or wish for their love and praise. We came to make Equestria a better and safer place but they no longer feel the need for us. They want us dead." I turned my head to the ground in anger. We walked further until we reached Herculon Harbour. We found a small broken boat and mother fixed it. We stepped onto the derelict boat. "Where are we heading to now?" I asked. "We are going to Sendaria, the kingdom of King Darus; Celestia and Lunas' uncle." My mother replied. Gabriella questioned, "Why?" "Their lies a festering power in that kingdom that needs to be destroyed. We believe there are some creatures in that land that will be willing to help us," Aunt Lorelai answered. "We are going to do something about the evil in Equestria? We are going to help?" I asked excitedly. "Yes." My mother said with a smile. "I think i should go now. I should take Sapphire and go see Calypso," Gabriella recommended. "Of course. I will go with you. Allura, i will see you in Sendaria by the Evern Caves." Aunt Lorelai said. My mother nodded and Gabriella and Aunt Lorelai took off into the skies with Sapphire being carefully held in a magical bubble. I turned to my mother who began to turn the ship into motion. "Why don't we just teleport to Sendaria? Just show me an image of the gates." I suggested. "That would be very clever but each kingdom has an invisible magical force field that protects it from creatures or ponies teleporting inside." My mother answered. The Moon's everlasting glow remained in the sky for hours and showed no signs of movement. I looked to my mother who was calmly and steadily steering the boat to starboard (right). The stars were missing. All except for six shimmering dots that formed a semi-circle around the full Moon. "Laina. I need to tell you something." My mother said, breaking the deafening silence. I turned around, awaiting her to begin talking. "The darkness we are about to face is not be fooled by. It is a trickster. A dark being capable of tricking the mind and corrupting the soul. She is a powerful creature." "She?" "Yes. Her name is Umbrina and is a powerful unicorn. When King Otis fled Equestria and Sendaria, she saw an opportunity and took it. She came from the North but has remained silent for years until she sent an army of "ponies" to Canterlot. They were easily defeated but they didn't have Umbrina with them. We are here to stamp her out before she does anything else. Oh! And she is what is known as a Shadow Pony." "A what?" I asked. "A corrupted pony, tormentted by darkness and shadows. She is changed from what she used to be. Now, she is only evil and a simple shadow of her past self. The shadows were able to keep her young and youthful but she is possibly around 1900 years old." "Do you know her?" I wondered. My mother paused before giving her answer, "Yes...once. She was be tutored along side me, Lorelai and Celestia. She was a mage in training but one day when she was documenting in the Bad Lands, she came across a dark cave and was attacked by a...Tantabus. The embodiment of darkness and shadows, it is an evil spirit that will inhabit the body of a creature and enhance its' abilities to harvest the souls around it so it can "feed". We must kill her before any harm can come to the last resistance in Sendaria." "What do you mean resistance?" I said, visibly confused. "There is an order of warrior ponies who remained in Sendaria, even after the Great Retreat (fleeing from Sendaria). They then protected it but went into hiding after Umbrina took over. They call themselves the Topaz Order, which was the gem symbolic of Sendaria."

    Drama Dusk Rider's Story

    Hey everyone. Since I'm new to the forums, I figured I should share the two currently completed stories I have up on FiMFiction. Both are related, and both revolve around one of my characters, Dusk Rider/Lazuli Cutter. https://www.fimfiction.net/story/393376/the-dulling-of-a-blade The Dulling of a Blade A street-mare turned assassin finds herself trapped in a cycle of crime and loneliness that she desperately wants to escape from, as much as she hates to admit it. Is it even possible for her to come back from a life of crime, or is she doomed to become a forgotten criminal whose only legacy is death and destruction? And a direct sequel to that story, Coagulation. https://www.fimfiction.net/story/394092/coagulation I won't provide a summary for that one, because it slightly spoils the ending of Dulling of a Blade. I'm well aware that my writing is...sub-par at best, but I'd be remiss if I didn't at lesat share what I've got.
  10. During the Songbird Serenade Rainbow performace at Canterlot, Queen Novo. She recently found out that her daughter, Princess Skystar, sneaked out of her kingdom and disobeyed her orders. Thus, she was grounded, despite assisting her friends in dethroning the Storm King. “Mom. I know what I did was wrong, but I was just trying to help my friends!” Skystar had to convince her elder not to cause any cruelty. Queen Novo stood firm at the effects caused, and wouldn't think about letting it slide. “One of your friends stole The Pearl out of us, and you really expect me to forgive them after that?” “Twilight didn’t meant to steal it! She was trying to save her kingdom.” Skystar replied. “That’s still not acceptable! I told you many times we do not allow strangers in our kingdom.” Novo retorted. “They not strangers!” Skystar exclaimed. Queen Novo got annoyed at that comment, demanding Skystar to show her respect for her elder. “That’s it! I don’t want to hear anymore excuses; We are going home!” Novo yelled angrily. Skystar felt very upset as she flew away by Novo’s side. Twilight saw the argument the two seaponies just had, feeling horrible after stealing The Pearl from her land piece. “Your majesty! Wait!” Princess Twilight yelled, trying to stop the queen from flying away Novo swung around and snarled at Twilight. “You leave us alone, you thief!” Twilight dodged. “Look I’m sorry what I did, but I was going to give it back.” “Oh really? Just because everything is back to normal doesn't mean I’m forgiving what you did to our pearl.” Novo stood firm. “I know my apologies aren't enough, but is there any way to ask for your forgiveness?” “Please,” Spike pleaded. “We were having so much trouble since we left our home, and Twilight was just trying to make good decisions on saving our home. We are not bad ponies; we are just friends who need help.” Novo took her time to think about Twilight’s apology. It wasn't long before Skystar walked up to her. “Please reconsider, Mom.” Skystar followed. Novo thought about the words they said. “Alright, I have an idea to resolve this... You told me Pinkie Pie is great with parties, right?” “Of course!” Twilight answered. If you and Pinkie can throw a party at our kingdom so fantastic, We will forgive Princess Twilight.” Novo suggested. “Thank you! I’ll promise you will never regret it.” Twilight said before turning to Pinkie Pie. “We should throw a party with all of our friends to show our apology to the Hippogriffs.” “Well, tactically it was your fault for stealing their pearl. But, I'm on it!” Pinkie saluted. “And, I'm gonna need your help with this...” “Okay, so what are we going to do?” Pinkie Pie called the CMC, along with her party friend Cheese Sandwich, for a quick hurdle. Meanwhile, Princess Celestia, Luna, and Cadence walked up to Twilight. Indeed, they witnessed her conversion with the Hippogriffs. Twilight explained everything that happened in Seaquestria. “Twilight, you know you should never steal their pearl. Since your friends were willing to help you, you should really trust in them.” “I know. I was desperate about saving Equestria, and I should’ve never stole anything.” Celestia then put her hoof around Twilight and hugged her. “If you really want to make it up to them, then we should come with you...” Princess Cadence looked around. “I have never seen Seaquestria before, so I’d really appreciate if you allow me to come.” “I would also want to be a guest there.” Luna added. “Well... I guess we’re ready to throw a party for the seaponies...” Twilight said as everyone prepared to throw the greatest party in Seaquestria. *At The Seaquestria Throne Room.* All of the seaponies, especially Celestia, Luna, Cadence, and all the other ponies have been invited to the welcome home party for Princess Skystar and Queen Novo. Novo sat on her throne, keeping an eye on her daughter.. “Mom! You said I can help Pinkie Pie with her party...” Skystar complained. “After… the introduction from Twilight...” Novo scorned. Skystar felt really depressed since she wouldn't get a chance to hang out with Pinkie some more. Then again, she’d hope that Twilight will forgive her mom. For the next minutes or so, Twilight Sparkle attended to Novo with a scroll in hoof, now in her seapony form. “Your Highness, I, Princess Twilight Sparkle, come to you with humble confidence, and apology. Touching your sacred pearl was something I should’ve never done to begin with. However, we’re not bad strangers, and thus we decided to throw a party to show our respect to your kingdom. Hopefully, we intend to put our differences and trespasses in the past, and move forward to being friends again...” As soon as Princess Twilight finished her speech, she swam down out of the throne room, heading towards her friends to prepare something of a surprise. “Okay, Princess Skystar. You can help your friends now.” Queen Novo permitted, which made Skystar happy Several minutes later, Pinkie and her friends came out of the entrance. Following them were the CMC, and other Seaponies to surprise the Queen. They carried with them oceanic instruments, including steel drums and bongos. The CMC used some lighting they found, courtesy of the sea residents. Pinkie Pie, having another idea to impress the queen, grabbed Spike. “Spike! I’m going to need you for blowing bubbles.” “Okay.” Spike saluted. Everyone else gathered their pufferfish to blow bubbles in the sea air. While the bubbles flail around, Rarity used her powers to turn the bubbles’ natural color into purple. It was then Twilight Sparkle aimed upward to shoot all the bubbles, only to pop them. As soon as they were dissolved, sparkles were let out, glimmering across the room. Everyone was amazed with the beautiful performance they saw from the ponies, so much that Novo gazed in astoundment. However, the surprises weren't even close to over since Twilight and her friends save the best for last. Everyone got away from the center of the throne room so that Rainbow Dash can do something she never thought she could do as a seapony. Oddly enough, she took Skystar’s fin as they ascended into the air. “You're ready?” Rainbow said with a smirk. “I think...” “I’m sure you and your mother will love this...” Rainbow encouraged. Once the two seaponies were all set to do their part, they both spun around. As soon as they spun several times, they increased, they both do a whirlpool while Rainbow Dash used her speed. The whirlpool changed into rainbow colors with the impact of the speed, and everyone joined in, swimming around it with glee. Everyone was surprised after that unexpected moment from Rainbow Dash, especially Queen Novo. Her eyes went wide open when she saw the beauty of the rainbow whirlpool. So much that she came into tears since she never saw anything so amazing in a long time. After everyone was done with the last performance, they evacuated from the whirlpool while Rainbow Dash slowed down. Princess Skystar, however, didn’t know she was supposed to stop, thus she spun around in circles. Luckily, everyone else stopped her just when the whirlpool went away. “Skystar!” Pinkie shouted. “You can stop now!” Skystar felt so happy, she didn’t care about stopping. It was then she finally paused before hugged Rainbow Dash. “Oh my gosh, that was awesome! You're really the fastest pony ever! How did you know you can do that as a seapony?” Rainbow showed a cocky grin. “I can do anything, even things I have never done before.” “So? What do you think?” Twilight asked the queen nervously. Everyone then looked at her, wondering what she thought about all three of the performances. “What do I think? I loved it.” She smiled with light tears of joy coming down her eyes. “Twilight, It really shows that you're really forgiving you'd be. And your friend Pinkie, who is indeed the best party pony I have ever seen. You ponies may not belong here, but you deserve to be one of us.” All the seaponies cheered for the Mane Six, along with the CMC, and thus the celebration became a success. “We did it!” Applejack cheered. “We were fabulous!” Rarity added. “I really love being a seapony.” Fluttershy commented. Twilight felt happy that she and her friends received their forgiveness from Novo. It wasn't long before Celestia and the other princesses swam towards Twilight. “Twilight, that was beautiful.” Princess Cadence phrised. “Magnificent...” Luna added. Celestia looked Twilight closer. “You always know how to make everyone, even the hippogriffs felt pleased. And after everything you did already, it would seem that I should forgive you for what you did.” “Thanks, Celestia.” Twilight and Celestia hugged together while the welcome home party continued. “Hey is it okay that we can have a underwater volleyball game?” Pinkie asked the Queen. “Sure.” she answered. Suddenly, a seapony took out a bubble-like volleyball while everyone prepared to play a game. Skystar looked back, but refused to hang out with them due to her still being grounded, or so she thought. “Hey, Skystar! why won’t you play with us?” Pinkie asked. “I'm sorry, but I’m still grounded. ” Skystar looked down in shame. Queen Novo looked at her daughter and smiled. “You can play volleyball with your friends.” “Really?” “Yes. You're not grounded…but only if you promise to be responsible next time.” Novo warned. “Oh! Thank you, mom!” Skystar hugged her mother. “You're the best!” As soon as Skystar joined in. everyone played underwater volleyball, along with the Mane Six, CMC, and the even the Princess of Seaquestria, thus everything was back to normal. Queen Novo was pleased, yet still was disappointed about the past. Although, she’d learn to let the past go.

    Starlight hate's spread to EQG

    I've seen the trailer for Mirror Magic, and it seems like Sunset will be trapped in the mirror, too, leaving Starlight to save the day. Already, people are starting to complain about it. Anyone think the Glimmer-Hate's starting to get real old real fast at this point? It's almost as bad as people saying Twilight should be replaced as the main character.
  14. Hey, I actually posted this topic back in early April. I've been working on and brainstorming ideas for a fanfic that I hope to have out in July. Its an alternate ending to Lesson Zero where somepony dies during the events and Celestia has to hold Twilight accountable. Celestia Incarcerates Twilight in a northern prison that is hundreds of miles away from ponyville, where she is cut off from her friends and family. As she serves her time, her character begins to change as she becomes less of a nerdy bookworm and more aggressive, before being visited by the res of the mane 6 and realizing that she had turned into a monster. I've already greenlighted the project and I'm shooting for July 11th as my launch date complete with the first 5 chapters and coverart. That being said, I am looking for editors who can revise and edit my work. If you're interested in applying as an editor, please PM me or contact me through deviantart.

    Drama The Tale of Queen Servia

    I do know this story is not perfect and it may have its small flaws, but I do NOT give permission for anybody to alter this story in anyway or post it anywhere else be respectful I don't mind criticism, but be respectful with that said I hope you enjoy the story. I know this story is not the greatest, but I do hope you like it. Story written by me chaosprincess Queen Servia belongs to Nightmare Star King Viakor belongs to Nightmare Star Lord Senvious belong to Nightmare Star Celestia and Luna belong to Hasbro The Tale of Queen Servia Why hello there little ones my name is Queen Servia I am as what some may call an ice queen I produce the beautiful wonders of winter shrouding the land in a white beauty, o what a sight to behold. But I suppose your not here to talk about winter, so I will tell you a tale. Now please do your best to behave yourselves during the tale otherwise your time will be spent in an icy prison. Now where to begin? Ah that's it now I'm sure all of you out there know the royal sisters of the sun and moon for their tale has been told all around, as for my tale its been hidden as an attempt to keep the memory of the past a secret. Now I was once married, but that stallion now lies in his own prison to rot, as for my son I prefer our tie remain cut. I suppose you don't care much for my love life or family I am after all a stranger to all of you. Now my tale begins in a small kingdom within Equestria, I ruled alone having no need to have a king beside me he would just get in the way. Now as a ruler I was loved by my faithful subjects who adored my winters that is until Celestia came along with her flashy sun tricks. She took everything from me my home, my subjects EVERYTHING, please do excuse me the memory still upsets me. She exiled me for my anger my beautiful winter taken away by her sun, my subjects taken by my anger I went into a blind rage which in the end caused my exile. Now I can see all of you are quick to point your hoof, claw whatever you have at me, placing the blame on my anger, but my beautiful winter was perfect and loved by my subjects until she came along showing her petty little sun off. Something just snapped inside of me as I stood there watching as the sun melted my winter I was a ruler as well it was not her place to touch MY KINGDOM. I do apologize once again I'm sure all of you care less about my anger and more about where my exile lead me so I'll tell you. I was exiled to a deserted wasteland, but little did I know I was being watched by my nuisance of a husband to be, but as annoying as he was he became quite useful to me. I did not like the idea of traveling with Viakor, but I had little choice and knew nothing of the land. I sort of wished he went back to the dirt hole he crawled out from, but he surprisingly made a good tool. He was a big stallion with little brain and a goofy look, but he was easy to use I just had to work a little charm, it seemed he liked me a little to much. I held no interest in him my heart would not be owned by that fool, but unfortunately that changed once I returned to my kingdom seems he had his own charm. It was a mistake to allow him to claim my heart for our son suffered, but I hold no love for either of them. Now to continue throughout my exile we traveled underground seems he had a fear of the sun pretty pathetic if you ask me. I suppose I can't speak since I did marry him and birth his child, luckily our son did not get his brains. Now traveling underground was not so bad since there was multiple tunnels leading to different areas of Equestria it was quite impressive for a pony who lacked any brain cells. Now the underground paths allowed me to reach Celestia's castle, I would never be able to reach the surface, but from underground I was able to freeze the ground causing all those who stepped on the ice to remain frozen in place. It was quite amusing seeing Celestia send her guards out to find me, Viakor of course would cause a little havoc for the sun princess as well he would barely escape at times, but he still managed somehow. At some point Viakor did propose to me the ring was Celestia's crown how he managed to get it is beyond me, but I accepted it. I suppose he was not that bad back then once our son was born that's when he turned his back on us. I spent many years in exile with him it was not all bad, but I just wanted to die at times knowing my kingdom was to never be the same my subjects were terrified of me, and I would never receive their acceptance for they have turned on me to worship Celestia. I was determined to break free from exile and remove any trace of her from the world Equestria only needed one ruler and that ruler was me. My exile did not last to long for Viakor risked his life in order to break the spell keeping me out of Equestria what a fool he was. He wanted nothing more then to make me happy even if it meant killing all those that oppose me. So he broke the barrier allowing me back into Equestria, I ran as fast as I could to my kingdom only to see it as a wasteland all my faithful followers were gone abandoning their homes for a new life under the ruling of Celestia and Luna. The sight of it caused my rage to spiral out of control creating a winter that would never end just as the princess of the moon had done in her past. Celestia of course made her appearance in an attempt to stop me, but Viakor had made a nice little hole for our princess to rot in I enjoyed seeing the icy earth closing in around her, she was now in her own frozen prison for years to come. Once her fate was sealed I took my kingdom back and my loyal subjects soon followed, but my life was soon to change with the marriage to Viakor and the birth of our son Senvious. Viakor was a good ruler, but became quite abusive lashing out at our son, now as his mother I protected him, but that was soon to change as he placed a spell on me which allowed him to control me. The spell was a success and he used me as a tool against our son forcing me to cause great harm to him, but instead of breaking down into tears I would stand there and laugh as if his pain brought me great enjoyment. Senvious was my world a handsome colt who would rule beside us, but he was weak and his father hated that more then anything he figured beating him would make him stronger. I was no better then Viakor since I took part in the routine beatings I just held no sympathy or care even when he would cry out for me to stop I enjoyed the sight of his blood and the screams each beating would bring. Now your all probably wondering how I could do such a monstrous thing to my own flesh and blood and that question I will never answer for I am unable to those memories are far to painful so I tuck them away. I always thought with Celestia out of the way my life would be grand again, but Viakor was just like Celestia taking everything away from me including my own free will. This nightmare went on for years, but my son was not to suffer alone for Viakor has turned on me at times using his powers to keep me in place while he beat me until I was bloody and barely able to stand. I wanted nothing more then to kill him where he stood, but a part of me enjoyed the abuse he brought onto my son and I, I hated him hated that he controlled my emotions, controlled my body and controlled my kingdom while my son and I sat there as his toys. That was not to last forever for many moons later I was able to break free from the spell and make him suffer. But even with his imprisonment or death the damage was done my son and I no longer had a good relationship I wanted no part of him as he wanted no part of me. It remains that way even now, but as for my husband I could not bring myself to kill him he was after all the man I gave my heart to so I sentenced him to exile to rot in his own prison as I did with Celestia. The moment of my freedom was the moment my rage was placed on him I mauled him as if I was a carnivore tearing into its prey I had no reason to hold back after all this was the man who took my freedom and son away from me. He begged for me to spare him in which I did, but he was sentenced to 1,000 years in Tartarus and he still remains there to this day. Now as for my son Senvious I banished him from my kingdom and if he was to return he will be killed, I do understand how hard that must be for some of you to read banishing my own child, but I am merely showing him some tough love. I am merely doing what a mother should to care for their young although he is no longer a colt he is still my son so therefore I must teach him the tough lessons of life. I must admit I do enjoy seeing his tornadoes from a distance he has grown so much and causing havoc of his own, now as for me my beautiful winters remain untouched throughout the season. The rising of the sun is no longer an issue with Celestia out of the way my beautiful winters remain it brings me such joy seeing the little ponies enjoy my winter with their little games and pony angels. This is where my story ends I rule my kingdom alone once again, my faithful subjects adoring everything that I do and no pony will get in my way.

    Entry #24 My views on this "Drama"

    Now before I get into any of this, Please remember I am not ranting on the Poniverse staff in any way. If anyone takes offense to anything I say I am 1000% apologetic. Anyways.... There is no reason for me to bail out Well, with all of the events taking place recently, I'm just glad that I was not a part of it in any way. But What really upsets me and kinda gets me sad is the fact that all of these great forums members who I've got to know are just simply riding with the victim. I will admit the things the chair of poniverse says can be unacceptable but I don't give a fuck if he does anything to me. Because not matter how much of a jerk you are I would never leave these forums as a thing in the past. My main purpose on here is to make friends, spread love, and fulfill others with such joy. I believe that the more I project my voice here with my love, I can make the community connect better. Again. I am very disheartened by the fact we are all "crying" over this. We should not be ignorant on the ones who are in need of help, we should reach out a helping hoof and improve the lives of others. Because no matter how sad, depressed, angry, and hopeless you are There should be no hate under this fandom Just brothers and sisters
  18. Hello everyone. I will admit that I have not posted any of my blog reviews in a long while and after this one, I won't anymore here. It saddens me that this has to come, but I do not wish to support anymore of Poniverse and it's assets any longer. Hearing of how Simon and Stitch's back room politicking of the many folks they've thrown out and have attempted to destroy such as Silver Eagle, Kyoshi, and Koukatsu with their power play, apathy, and lies respectively, I've chosen to refuse to abide by their terrible acts and blatant attempts to steer the justified backlash towards anyone in their attempt to restore their order they've created at everyone's expense. It is also on Feld0, Poniverse's owner, who has allowed this situation to come due to his incompetence and own apathetic behavior to the abuses that Simon especially has committed in his blind greed. As a result, I've deleted all of my blogs here, all of my hard work and toil that I've created here out of the comfort and cared I once showed to these forums is gone by my hand. This is to show of how far and willing I' am to go to no longer associate myself with the disgusting behavior of Ponivere's heads or provide support to them anymore. You will not see me ever on these forums again. I've already established in other third party sites in order to alleviate the impact of this departure. As a result, I will give the link to my profile page here: https://mlpforums.com/user/23942-nuke87654/to where you can find where I frequent and use these days if you wish to continue to associate with me outside of these forums. Goodbye to the folks of MLP Forums (save for those I mentioned above and those who are willing to support their behavior). I will miss you dearly and the fond memories I had with this place that I once called my internet home.

    Movies/TV The X Files

    Hi there, everyone. Is anyone else here a fan of this 90s cult classic? I wasn't even born yet when the show premiered, but my dad was a fan from the beginning and his enthusiasm for The X Files has rubbed off on me.
  20. Chapter 1 - It's CHRISTMAS! ========================================================= His eyes jolt open to the sound of a blizzard and frantic wind blowing onto his quaint little house in Ponyville. It took him a few minutes to realize that his upper body was up while his lower body was still relaxed onto the bed, he sighs softly to himself as he had remembered what the others had said, there would be a snow storm later tonight. "Huh, guess they were right." He said out loud and to no one in particular as he got up and walked to the opened window and closed it to avoid getting hypothermia in his own home, what a way to go that would be. 'Here lies Kyo Sunbringer, forgot to close window.' The sudden mental image made him laugh a little bit and got him to remind himself that he was alone in the house to share no laughs with. Its even worse when all the ponies he knows are either to busy to hang out with him or they practically hate his guts enough to stop caring about him. It hurts, but it's the sad truth... And funnily enough, you accept that. It was a full month when he got here in Equestria by... Strange paranormal means, let's call it. And when he had met the ponies, they were incredibly excited and frightened to meet him. They all thought he would gobble them up, hurt them or take their children. ... Okay, granted he did pick up a filly and nuzzled her from her adorableness, but her sister came around and practically KICKED him in the chest and was out like a light. What a misunderstanding that was... Thought it didn't stop her from distrusting him completely and warned the other ponies to not get too involved with him, but the lavender purple alicorn herself had an interested look in her eye when she found out that Kyo was completely sentient. And believe it or not, he too was a little confused on how sentient these creatures were but that's neither here nor there. Within a full week he was able to get some ponies trust by just staying away from them, 'strangely enough you do what they ask to do and they'll start to feel bad for you.' he thought. Now a month later he was at a neutral relationship with the town, but he still needed room for improvement, but he'll cross that bridge once he gets to it. Right now, it was Christmas and he decided to celebrate it his own special way: alcohol and the time to feel sorry for himself and have a mild case of depression, y'know the usual shindig. But it was even more depressing since he was the only one who celebrated Christmas while the others celebrated... "Oh man, what was it called again?" He said out loud. "Hearth's warming! That's right!" He continued as he clicks his fingers. "Even in a happier place like this, I can't stop my old habits." He said as he walked into his workshop and got a bottle of Applejack Daniels from the cabinet. "Pfft, Applejack Daniels, seriously? Ugh, I hate whiskey..." Somewhere out there you could hear the fated words coming: "Pass the whiskey!" He shook his head and chuckled at the strange mental image again, he sighs. "Well, this is better than nothing I guess." He sat down and opened the bottle, he got a shot glass and poured some in, after that he took the shot and shivered from it. It wasn't unpleasant, it was more sweet than burning. The taste of apple and cinnamon overriding the taste of disgusting alcohol was a nice exchange... He could definitely drink more of this and hopefully feel plastered by the end of the bottle or if his lightweight side came along the first quarter would knock him clean out. His wish was for either since he wanted this day to go faster and by Tria, he would do anything to not trigger any horrible memories, not only that but he didn't want to be bothered by anyp-- Before he could finish that inner monologue, the doorbell rang. Kyo looked over to the door and sighed to himself as he ignored it and went for another drink, but the doorbell rang once more and a couple more for good measure, this made him a little bit annoyed and got up, he walks to the door and opened it. It was Spike, and he seemed to be shivering. 'Which was odd since I normally thought he was immune to weather conditions, guess it didn't sink in just yet.' He thought in his mind and then wondered. "So, what's up Spike? Need anything?" Despite Kyo's impatience and annoyance to the drake, he couldn't say anything mean to the guy, he was the only one who he found to be even close to a friend. Spike looked a little bit unsure of himself. "Hey Kyo... Uhm, I was wondering if you'd come over to the castle." Kyo blinks a bit and folds his arms. "Oh really? Why?" Now he was getting impatient, but he was curious as to see where this goes. Spike took notice and nervously smiles. "Eheh... Well, Twilight really wants to see you and it's been a few days since she last saw you... S-so did the other girls." Kyo couldn't believe a single word he said, so he looked around the snowy streets of Ponyville and looked back at Spike. "Is this a joke?" He finally said. "This isn't some prank Rainbow has you dished out, has she? Cause if so, I'm not laughing Spike. This isn't funny!" Kyo said looking at Spike whom looked a little bit hurt and Kyo felt a bit guilty from nearly exploding from rage. "I-I know that you guys haven't been getting along b-but..." He stammered out and Kyo sighed and shook his head. "Sorry Spike, I refuse tonight... I got a lot on my mind and being around friends isn't gonna help... In fact, I think its best that you ignore me for the rest of this week." Kyo said in a bit more of a tolerable tone, but it still made Spike a little upset. "O-oh... Okay, erm... Is it about this 'Christmas' thing?" He said with a bit curiousness to his voice. Oh the naivety of youth. Kyo had sighed again. "Kinda, but it's also got something to do with me and the girls in general, if I be there in the castle I'm just going to make things worse and no doubt I'd cause a lot of trouble." Spike looked down and nodded in understanding. "Oh... Okay. Alright, well if you change your mind..." He said solemnly, he looks to the floor and begins waddling back to the castle. A part of Kyo wanted to scold himself for declining the guy, but you know what they say: 'Don't feed the flames with more fuel.' And Kyo just didn't want to be THAT guy whom has fuelled the flames for just being there. Kyo closed the door and sat back down on the table to get another drink of Applejack Daniels, hopefully tonight will go down without a hitch. "Cheers." He said solemnly before downing the shot and sighing loudly to himself. [End of Chapter 1]

    The Broken Toy

    Equestria is less than a memory here. There is no magic, only enormous overpopulated Gigapoleis and miracles of genetic engineering. Living creatures are being constructed and programmed, shaped and modified, enslaved and abused. This is Earth. The indifference of its people is surpassed only by their greed and cruelty. Their kindness, honesty, loyalty, and generosity are too often just words. Their laughter too often means someone’s suffering. But while friendship stands, any evil can be brought down, right? Right? Greetings, everybrony! We are happy (and just a little bit terrified) to introduce the English translation project for The Broken Toy! What is The Broken Toy? The Broken Toy (orig. "Сломанная Игрушка"- rus.) is an epic dark novel by DarkKnight, who is well known and appreciated throughout the Russian-speaking brony community. The story takes place in the future of the Earth, where advanced genetic engineering allows humans to mass produce sapient technicolor ponies synthetic living beings with programmable minds and memories. If you want to get the basic understanding of what this novel is, just imagine the crazy mix of Do Hippoids Dream of Electric Parasprites by Filly K. Buck and Who Framed Roger Pegasus film. The novel contains 150K words, has been published as a book with an art-book, there is an audio version and also a spread of fan-made artworks and fics. Warning! Novel contains scenes of violence, coarse language, adult themes, and random combinations of the foregoing! Rated “M”: appropriate for mature teens and older. What’s our plan? Basically, our goal is to adapt and translate the original novel for the English-speaking community, chapter by chapter. We are also working on an English audio book and a set of illustrations for every chapter. Check the links below! In the longer term, we plan to publish the novel as an illustrated book. The Broken Toy team There are currently four of us, in alphabetical order: 1. Cerulean Starlight, editor of the English version. 2. Icy Shake, editor of the English version. 3. Slaaneshi, translator and charismatic PR-managing guy. 4. V_Korneev, one no fun jerk.

  25. You’ll be in my heart Scootaloo woke up one beautiful summer morning with a big smile on her face. Because today is her thirteenth birthday. She sat up in her bed and flung off the covers. She hopped out of bed and skipped happily downstairs. Her mother, a Pegasus with a brown coat and a darker brown mane, was sitting in the living room on the sofa. She had laid five presents on the floor. Scootaloo was so excited until she looked at her mother’s face. She seemed sad but was trying to be happy for Scootaloo. She opened her mouth to say something, but she didn’t know how. So she stopped. Then Scootaloo asked “Mom, what’s wrong?” Her mother sighed and took a deep breath “Scootaloo, there is something I should have told you a long time ago. I’ve never had the courage.” Then slowly Scootaloo’s ears started drooping down. Scootaloo looked at her mother confused and nervous and said “Mom, you're scaring me…” Then her mom all of a sudden perked up and said plainly "Never mind! I was just kidding, now let’s eat cake!” Scootaloo was surprised and strait afterwards almost forgot the dreary feeling and ran to the kitchen. Scootaloo’s mom was feeling guilty, she knew she had to tell her but she didn’t have the courage. She couldn’t bear to see this young mare be sad but she had to. She walked over to scootaloo who was getting the cake out pf the cooler. Scootaloo turned around with a smile on her face, this made her feel even more guilty. She took a big breath. “Scootaloo,” Scootaloo looked at her mom again and saw her pained expression. “Mom! What is wrong? Is it the thing that you wanted to tell me earlier?” “Scootaloo, you-you’re a-a-adop-ted” She said with a wobbling voice and a tier rolling down her face. Scootaloo had just taken the cake and dropped it, her pupils went small. She stood there in shock for a minute. Then perked up “Mom, it’s funny that you tried to prank me! That was a good one, he he! You should become an actress,” Scootaloo’s mom was shocked at Scootaloo’s reaction, is she in denial? “Hey mom! You should help me pick up this cake that I dropped!” Scootaloo said jokingly and laughed. “Scootaloo! What I just said isn’t a joke!” “Mom you have gone far enough! Now you’re overplaying it!” She said angrily. “Scootaloo! Listen!” Scootaloo’s mom shouted. “STOP! Mom, this joke has gone too far!” She said frustrated. Scootaloo’s mom got very frustrated and angry. She grabbed Scootaloo. “Do I look like I’m joking!” “No! you seem like you are going too far with a bad joke!” Scootaloo took a deep breath but it was not enough to calm her and she slapped Scootaloo. “You are adopted! Stop being in denial!” And she started crying. “You should have let me believe it was a joke,” She started crying. She had so many emotions crossing through her. Anger, frustration, distrust, sadness, curiosity and denial. She didn’t want to stay in this house, with this person she had called “Mom” “what she going to say next this is not her birthday or something? Or rainbow Dash is… Never mind, I just need to get out of here!” She turned to the door and ran to it. Scootaloo’s mom sank through her knees. “What have I done?” Then Rainbow Dash walked into the house. Scootaloo ran as fast as her little legs could take her. She ran past Apple Bloom whom said “Happy Birthday” but then saw that Scootaloo was crying. So she ran after her. “Leave me alone!” Scootaloo yelled as she ran full speed ahead. Apple Bloom couldn’t keep up and stopped. She went to get Rainbow Dash. Scootaloo galloped through the crowd, who all were confused. She galloped to a pond in the park and sat at the bank, looking down at her reflection while one tier dropped into the pond. Her reflection was first clear and then turned into a mixed up image. Her tiers were making small ripples in the water. Rainbow Dash walked past Scootaloo and then saw her sitting at the pond. Rainbow Dash then slowly walked to Scootaloo and sat next to her, she tried to put her wing around her but she shook it off. “Leave me alone! You don’t know what is wrong with me! She didn’t tell me! Sigh* she didn’t tell me…” Scootaloo looked even more sombre at the water. Then Rainbow said softly “Squirt, I knew her, your mother, your biological mother.” Scootaloo turned her head with her ears up “You knew my mom?” “Yes, I did” Then Rainbows ears went down and a tier rolled down her face. Scootaloo could see in her eyes what she meant. Then Scootaloo came closer to her and they cuddled each other, with Scootaloo’s head under Rainbow Dashes. They hugged for a few minutes and then Scootaloo broke hug. She sniffled and wiped her tiers away and asked “who was she? How did she look like? Who was my father?” “Squirt, It’s easier if I tell you everything, instead of question by question.” Rainbow said with a faint grin on her face. She slid Scootaloo closer to her with her wing and kept it around her. “Her name was Firefly, we were very close friends. She had the exact same mane style as me, except it was completely blue, it was a plain blue. Her coat was pink, almost flashy pink, her eyes were just a plain purple.” Rainbow Dash smiled while looking at the ground, then she looked at Scootaloo “I’m not going to tell her life story, but the whole year before you were born, I’ll you tell that.” Scootaloo looked at Dash and then nodded. “At the first day of high school, i was with Gilda. Laughing at others, thinking we were cool, while the senior years rolled their eyes sarcastically. We were the Freshman, we walked about the school grounds and chatted until the bell went. All the other years had to go to class except us. We, the 9TH grade had to stand outside and wait. Then a teacher with a bundle of paper came to the middle of the grounds, right in front of the horde of pupils. She was a completely white Pegasus, in my opinion she looked a bit creepy. Then she screamed loudly in a deep voice “My name is Miss Flake. When I say your name, you’ll also her the classroom you have to go to. So you say “Yes, miss” and then go to the classroom I tell you to. Got it?” Then everyone said in a depressing and bored way “Yes Miss Flake.” “Good. Miss Derpy Hooves.” “Yes Miss Flake” “Class E106” A grey Pegasus then started walking to the door, while doing so she tripped and everyone was laughing except the nerds and the shy ponies. She started blushing and got back up and walked to the door, then walked into the building with her head down. “Gilda the griffon.” “Yes Miss Flake” she answered in a sarcastic tone. “The same as Miss Hooves.” Then Gilda said to me “Hope you’re not stuck with the wall-eyed freak.” I laughed “Good luck” then we high-fived each other. “Miss shy” “Y-Y-yes Miss Flake” Fluttershy whispered and sunk in between the crowd. “Are you there?” “Yes Miss Flake” She said two decibels louder “Stick your hand up please.” Then a little yellow hoof stood out of the crowd. “Miss Shy, newt time speak up!” “Okay Miss Flake” “Same as the others” When she walked through, you could hear everyone softly giggling. She was walking near to the ground with her ears down, trying not to be seen. “Miss Fly” “Yes Miss Flake” said Firefly” “Wait, so my family name is Loo?” Scootaloo interrupted. “No, your name would be “Miss Scootaloo”” said Rainbow Dash in a posh accent. “Continued, uuum, aah yes, “Miss Fly, same as the others E106” “Thanks Miss Flake.” Then She flew to the doors, she was really fast. She left a pink and blue trail after her, it was so awesome! “Miss D-CR-ash?!” Then a stupid stallion said “Haha! Rainbow Crash!” Then I said annoyed “It’s Dash, Miss Flake.” “Sorry Miss Dash, same as the others.” Then I turned around and headed for the doors. At the back of the crowd was the stupid stallion, I recognised him. He was the a-hole who got me my cutiemark! “Even the teachers think you are Crashing! Haha!” I ignored him and walked further with an angry face, I’ll get him one day! More names where getting called while I walked through the door. It led to a long hallway with big windows on the left side and 7 doors on the right. The first door was E101, the principal’s office. In the next few years I’m going to spend a lot of time there. The rest were all classrooms, E102 E103, ext., until I got to E106. Derpy and Firefly were already talking to each other and Gilda was laughing at Fluttershy. She was almost crying. Until Firefly intervened. “What do you think you’re doing!?” “Tell this dweeb how useless she is.” “Why? Because you need to feel better about yourself? By getting power in the sadness in others? Is that really how you want Fluttershy remembering her high school years?” Gilda broke into a sweat, while firefly looked at her angrily. Gilda looked around the room to find a way out of it. “Look! My friend Rainbow Dash is here!” She did an arm movement for me to come in. I walked in nervously and said hi. Firefly raised her eyebrow and looked up and down at me, then she just said “hm” and helped Fluttershy up and walked back to Derpy. Chapter 2 New school, new rules Then I turned around to Gilda. “What was that all about?” “I was just saying stuff to the dweeb, then that brat came and tried to seem cool or somethin’” I raised my eyebrow and glared at her annoyed. “That “Dweeb” you where insulting just there, was my friend, NO, IS my friend!” “If you are such good friends which her, why don’t you join her. Dweeb number Two!” Gilda said angrily “Good idea! Bye” I said in an annoyed tone and waved to her, then I turned around and started walking to Fluttershy. “Fine then! I’ll get my own friends.” “You sound like a kindergartener, so please stop talking to me.” I said. I walked through the classroom until I got to fluttershy. Her ears where down and her eyes where a bit puffy and red. Then she saw me and started sinking through her knees and looking at me scared. I could tell that she thought I was going to beat her up. So I breathed in and tried to say in my gentlest voice “Sorry, about Gilda. She can be a real filly about stuff.” When I said that my voice was all crocky. “I-I-It’s alright” fluttershy said surprised and relieved. Then Firefly walked up to me and said “Are you just pretending to be fluttershy’s friend? So she will intrust you with one of her secrets and then tell everyone and let her be the laughing stock for the whole school?” then she pushed me backwards against the wall “Of course not!” “That’s what you said to Derpy, she trusted you! and you made her laughing stock!" Then my eye’s got small and a light sweet broke out, i was ashamed of myself. She was looking at me furiously and started putting her arm tighter against my throat. All the others in the class started gathering around and Gilda started giggling. Then miss Flake and a brown Pegasus stallion walked in. and saw Firefly pinning me against the wall. She first lightly spat in my face then let me go and I stumbled to the ground. I coughed a bit and rubbed my throat. While the stallion brought Firefly out of the classroom, he looked very angry. Miss Flake came over to me to check if I was alright. “I’m fine, I deserved it.” I said.” Then Scootaloo interrupted Rainbow Dash. “Rainbow Dash, What did you do to Derpy?” Scootaloo asked. Rainbow Dash sighed “Well, you know Doctor Whooves?” “Yes, the stalion with that big blue thing!” “Yes, the stallion with the blue thing. We were in middle-school. I got close to Derpy to find out one of her secrets and was planning to hang posters of it everywhere. So one day she invited me to her house and we did truth or dare. Of course I did dare the whole time and Derpy did half and half. My plan was to ask her who she had a crush on. So I asked her “So Derpy who do you have a crush on?” She answered me thinking that I wouldn’t tell anyone. “Doctor Whooves.” and then she blushed nervously. I was surprised and laughed. Like everyone does. She was okay with that, but what I did on the next day, if I where her I would have killed myself. So I made posters saying Derpy had a crush on the doctor, at that time he was one of the teachers at the school, he gave chemistry, physics and was studying dark matter. I made about 30 posters and hung them around the whole academy. Derpy was so shocked that she ran out of school. Everyone was laughing at her while she ran down the corridor to the exit, until she bumped into the doctor. She was lying at the doctor legs, since she had fallen down. Then she started blushing like crazy and cried. She ran out of the school building, while everyone shouted “Teachers slut ha-ha!” He asked what was happening and everyone showed him the posters. He was flustered at first when he saw the posters but then he got mad at everyone for laughing. After that incident she never returned to that school. And of course I was bragging about it in my clique. And Firefly was in that group. Everyone laughed about it except Firefly, she left the group after that and went to Derpy her house every day… I don’t even know if she forgave me.” Then Rainbow Dash thought to herself. “Rainbow Dash, how old are Derpy and The Doctor actually?” “Derpy is now 20 and the Doctor is 28, I think.” “How old where they when you did that?” “Derpy was 14 and The Doctor was 22” “What you did was worse than what Diamond Tiara and silver spoon did to the CMC. You were a horrible person” “I know now; I regret doing it still.” Rainbow looked at her watch that she had on and then said “It’s 12 o’clock, you should be getting back to your mom!” “She isn’t my mom.” Scootaloo said angrily “Well not technically or biologically, but she has taken care of you like a mother, since you were 8 days old.” “But still…and why didn’t my dad take care of me?” she asked in an annoyed tone “Because he was and still is a cowardly good for nothing” “Who was he?” “That I will tell you in the story.” “Seriously!” “Yep, you’ll have to suffer.” “Why don’t you continue the story then?” “Because it’s long and you need to go back to your mother.” “I would like to hear the rest of it.” “Okay squirt, I’ll come every day after your school for an hour and tell you a part of the story.” Rainbow Dash said patiently. “Yessssss!” “Okay Scoots, I’ll walk you home and tell YOUR mother our deal, okay?” “Yup! Can I go on your back?” Scootaloo begged “Fine! It’s only because it’s your birthday and I’m awesome that I’m allowing it.” With that said Scootaloo jumped onto Rainbow Dashes back. Rainbow Dash then spread her wings to get ready to fly “Hold on scoots!” Rainbow Slowly but full of power raised her wings and then pushed really hard on her wings. When she pushed down a half Rainboom appeared. When they got high enough Rainbow Dash started flying forwards to scootaloo her house. Then Rainbow dash popped a random question “So what is Whooftons Third law?” “Ugh! Why are you asking me this?” “I want to see if you have studied” “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Scootaloo said in a baby voice. “Well done! So your moms Sparta studying course works! Look, we are almost there.” Rainbow Dash slowly started descending. When they got there, Scootaloos mom ran outside and gave her a big hug. Her eyes where red and swollen. She then stood in front of Scootaloo and smiled. Then she said in a whimpering voice “Thank you Rainbow Dash.” “No problem, ah and also, from now on I’m coming an hour every day after school to tell Firefly’s high-school life and also mine, hehe. So she knows where she came from.” “That’s fine Rainbow Dash, thank you again and see you tomorrow.” “Bye, see ya squirt!” “See you Dash.” Then Scootaloo closesd the door. “Bye” Rainbow Dash said softly, she started thinking of her high-school life and smiled. “I miss you fly.” and a small tier rolled slowly down her face. Chapter 3 Cinnamon rolls The next morning Scootaloo woke up almost ready for a meeting of the cmc, but she still had to crawl out of bed. Because She was still a bit tired, so she rubbed her eyes and yawned. Then she thought to herself “five more days until school starts again, I wonder if Dash is also coming today? Because she said after every school day. Ugh* I’ll just have to wait and see,” Then she slowly crawled out of her bed. And landed on the floor with a bash. Then Scootaloo’s mother said mockingly “I know you are a teenager officially, but wasn’t that a little over the top?” “Ha-ha, very funny mom!” shouted Scootaloo sarcastically. Then Scootaloo got off the floor and went downstairs sluggishly. She went slowly to the kitchen, but she was keeping an eye on the time because she was meeting the cmc in half an hour. When she got to the kitchen her mom was washing the dishes. She started coughing and she put on a pained face. Scootaloo asked concerned “Are you okay, mom?” She answered with a lightly hoarse voice “Yes I’m fine, I just have a cold, that’s all *cough*…So where you meeting up with your friends today?” “Umm, the clubhouse normally,” she said while thinking. “And we are meeting up with Fluttershy… Hey, mom! Do you think it would be okay to ask Fluttershy about my biological mother?” “I don’t know, but make sure she isn’t doing anything when you are asking her and be polite about it!” “Of course I will be!” “So sweetie, what are you having for breakfast? Bear in mind that you only have twenty minutes,” “no twenty-five,” “It take five minutes to get there,” “…. You’re right, Hay sandwich will be fine,” she said defeated Scootaloo then walked to the table and sat down waiting for the sandwich, which her mum was preparing. When she was finished making it, she came over to the table slowly with the hay sandwich on one wing and a cup of coffee on the other, her wings where shaking. Normally her mom was strong enough to carry it. She brought them to the table and sat down, then she pasted the sandwich to scootaloo. Scootaloo then looked at her mum’s face, she looked tired. She kind of felt guilty of leaving her alone. But her mum said she was okay, so she’s okay, right? Scootaloo had finally finished her sandwich. It was twenty-five past! So Scootaloo gave her mum a kiss on the cheek and ran outside to her scooter and popped her helmet on. She then hopped on her scooter and rode as fast as she could to the club-house. When she got there Apple Bloom and Sweetybell were waiting for her. “Scootaloo! Why were you so upset yesterday? I was gonna wish you a happy b’day!?” Apple Bloom asked interrogatively. Scootaloo sighed and answered calmly “Yesterday, I got told I was adopted,” “Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!” Sweetybell and Apple Bloom exclaimed at the same time open mouthed. “You understand now why I was upset yesterday?” “I’m so sorry Scootaloo, may I ask, do you know who your biological mother is?” Apple Bloom asked surprised and on a low tone. “No need to be sorry, my mother was called Firefly,” Scootaloo answered. “Wait! Wasn’t firefly one of the elite students of the wonder blot academy? She died young for reason not open to the public or something,” Sweetybell asked. “I have no idea, but how would you know that?” Scootaloo asked confused. Sweetybell answered proudly “When my sister designed prom dress design for the wonder bolt academy, she searched for inspiration. I helped her and we found that article! That means your mother was a legend!” “That’s cool I guess,” she said sombre. Apple Bloom said loudly “Okay, let’s change this mood shall we! First to the farm for some freshly baked cinnamon rolls and then to Flutter’s house!” “Okay, I guess,” Scootaloo said again. Then Apple Bloom exclaimed “And stop guessing!” “Fine, fine… I guess, haha!” Scootaloo said mockingly and then ran away from Apple bloom whom was chasing her. While Sweetybell started walking to the farm. The chasing game continued until they got to the farm. When they got to the farm Apple Bloom and Scootaloo were out of breath, but were giggling hysterically. They walked inside to the oven, where the cinnamon rolls were being kept warm. Sweetybell and Scootaloo went and sat at the table. While Apple Bloom took her oven glove and carefully took four cinnamon rolls out. Then Scootaloo asked “Why are there four cinnamon rolls?’ “Because someone surprising is coming over since she couldn’t say anything to you yesterday,” Apple Bloom said hintingly. Then all of a sudden Pinkie popped out of nowhere with a big grimace on her happy face. “Happy on-day-late-thirteenth-birthday *happy smile squeak*I heard your mom told you about your parental situation,” she said. “Pinkie, you knew?” Scootaloo asked surprised. “All of the elements of harmony know, especially RD and Flutter’s. They were really close friends of Firefly, but you already knew. But don’t ask Fluttershy anything about Firefly. She gets really, I mean really upset about it. I think you will know why when RD tells you the story.” Pinkie said quickly and she took a cinnamon roll and stuffed it in her mouth whole. The CMC’s eyes were big and staring at Pinkie, while she stuffed the cinnamon roll down her throat. A chill of disgust went down their spine, but they couldn’t stop watching. When Pinkie had swallowed it, a sigh of relief went through the room. It was over, but now they had no appetite for the rolls. Then Scootaloo asked “Can I keep two of the rolls for my mom, she has a cold and I heard from Twilight that it has some anti-Infl-fli-amm-i-no-atory (Anti-Inflammatory) properties or something, ‘cause she’s hoarse, so it will help with the swelling,” “Of course you can, because we lost are appetite ‘cause of Pinkie,” Apple Bloom while looking annoyed at Pinkie Pie. “Wha-a-a-at? I was just enjoying the roll,” Pinkie said on a high tone “Of course Pinkie,” Sweetybell said annoyed and the rolled her eyes. “Very Lady like, Rarity JR” Pinkie said mockingly. Sweetybell clenched her teeth and put on an angry face “What did you call me, stoner?” “oooooooh, snap,” Scootaloo and Apple Bloom said in the background. “It doesn’t mean you are a teenager, that you can go and act like a teenaged brat,” “Who started with the insults?” “Mine was a playful joke, yours was too far,” “Oh really?” Apple Bloom and Scootaloo started chanting “B-fight, b-fight, b-fight,” Then Pinkie said “Apple Bloom, Scootaloo, please leave and go to Fluttershy’s house, Rarity Jr and I are going to settle this like woman,” The girls then walked out of the farm and headed to Fluttershy’s. “Pinkie was really out of character, but she still was hilarious! Haha!” Scootaloo spouted out. “I wonder how they are settlin’ things?” Apple Bloom said concerned. Once they were halfway up the hill they saw Rainbow Dash flying low to the ground. She was flying to them. Scootaloo and Apple Bloom stopped and waved. Then they looked closely and saw Rainbow Dash had a very worried expression. Rainbow landed in front of them and cut straight to the case. “I found your mother on the floor unconscious. She’s now in the hospital,” Scootaloo pupils shrank “What?!”
