Chapter Six: “Undone”
Applejack slowly opened her eyes to find Twilight with her back turned to her, and Rainbow Dash grinning. Rainbow Dash nearly jumped up when she saw Applejack open her eyes, “Hey Twilight AJ's awake!”
Twilight turned around smiling, “Applejack! How are you feeling,” she asked, quickly walking to her side.
Applejack slowly sat up and looked around. They appeared to be in a hospital room, but it was quite large and seemed to be private. “Where am I,” she asked sleepily.
Twilight answered, “this is the private medical wing in the Castle.”
“What happened,” Applejack asked, slowly remembering the last things that had happened to her.
Twilight explained, “well, we covered Baltimare in Retexo two, and it seemed to counteract the affects of C7 almost entirely. When the search teams went in, they found you and Dr. Aden near the middle of the city passed out. We took you both back to Canterlot. After three days Aden had reverted back to a Unicorn, and well...”
Rainbow Dash took the initiative and said, “you've been passed out for two weeks, and your a normal Earth Pony again.”
Twilight shot Rainbow Dash a look, but Applejack was too stunned to notice. She got up out of bed and stood there for a moment before saying, “let me see.”
Twilight went out and grabbed a mirror from a nearby room and brought it back. She levitated it in front of Applejack, who sat there for a moment focusing on it, before realizing she no longer had the magic necessary to telepathically grab things. She reached out and took the mirror and began studying herself. She looked exactly as she had before, except her hair was still as long as it was when she was an alicorn. She was the same height as before, and she no longer had a horn or wings. She stayed looking in the mirror for several minutes, before finally speaking. “Well, I s'pose that this is what I wanted.”
Twilight could see the pain in her eyes, “we could always try to find some C1 and...”
Applejack held up her hoof to stop her, “it's fine Twi, ah just need some time to get used to things again.”
For the next several months Applejack got used to being an Earth Pony again. When she inquired into the fate of Dr. Aden, she was informed he was sentenced to a lifetime in the castle's dungeon. After she seemed back to her normal self mentally, not just physically, Celestia asked if she wanted to move back to Sweet Apple Acres. After much consideration she decided it would be best. Her and all her friends and family then moved back to Ponyville, and returned to what half a year prior had been normal life. All they had to show for their adventure was a grand tale of good intentions gone wrong.
