Prologue; 3 Teams, Ponyville, Early in the morning
Owlicious gathered the 5 animals that meant the most to her. Gummy the alligator, pet to Pinkie Pie was there. He was strong and silent. Probably silent because he had no teeth but what he couldn’t say verbally, he could still display with his vacant stares. He was also pretty good at cooking too. Opalescence was there. She was an elegant and charming beast of great intelligence and survival skills. She could use her razor sharp claws to cut though many materials. There was Winnona. She was as fast and strong as she was loyal to her comrades. She could also hunt game twice her size. There was Angel. That slick sarcastic bunny with a rebellious attitude. He had super keen ears and a powerful kick to match. Tank arrived too. Slowly but surely he made his way to the circle of animals surrounding a book. He was quiet and loyal, and strong as an ox but as slow as well… a turtle. Then there was the leader that we all know so well: Owlicious. She was super smart, super calm, super devoted and a pretty speedy flier as well.
“Alright, began Owlicious, ”this is our threat against Ponyvi- Equestria, rather. This Crystal has absorbed all the hatred in Equestria for hoot knows how long. Although Equestria is relatively peaceful, hatred builds up. This thing will level Equestria to dust if we don’t stop it!”
“Pfft how are ya even shure*?” replied Angel sarcastically. *(yes, I know how to spell “sure”, just imagine angel with a Brooklyn or Boston accent. If you have no idea how that sounds watch “Meet the Scout” on YouTube).
“He has a good point you know.” said Tank. Opal purred. Gummy nodded to show his understanding of the situation. Winnona stayed quiet but attentive. “Well, I had some kind of… epiphany that I knew that we are the chosen ones in this prophecy.” said Owlicious.
“Hmph well do you know what you’re lookin’ for? Or where it is? Seriously this is just annoying. You don’t know whatcha doin’. Unless you can make me feel this magical hocus pocus prophecy then buzz off. I was takin’ a nap when you came crawlin’ along. I need my sleep so I’m not cranky but I think you already know that, unlike the whereabouts of this magic rock.” Angel spat*. *(By which I mean intensively speaking, not Angel actually spitting onto the ground). A sudden tremor shook the ground violently.
“Do you think a bunch of dragons are slamming against the ground to do that? That’s how some earthquakes happen but most dragons are too far away to be causing the slightest shake over here. And the weather team always writes an apology or warning after they make an earthquake in the clouds. Take a look. The sky is as clear as day. Now read this sentence : “When the hate builds up, tremors occur”. Were you just really annoyed just a second ago? That tremor was all on you. Now do you believe me?” Angel was quite shocked. Owlicious’s rebuttal really made it clear; this was pretty dangerous and the worst part was that nopony believed them.
“Now that you’re done thinking that I’m lollygagging we’ve got to look for this thing. It could be anywhere in Equestria.” said Owlicious.
“We should split up” said Opal. “Rarity had these 3 way mirrors*. You can talk into them and see the animal on the other side. If we go in teams of 2 then we should be able to communicate when we find this…thing. Gummy was busy drawing a diagram on the ground with a stick.
Tank explained “Gummy and Opalescence, Owlicious and Angel and Winnona and I will travel in these groups.” Winnona barked “But we’ll need team names! We call Team Apple , Owlicious and Angel can be Team Noctuam, and Gummy and Opalescence can be Team Engima!”
“Well in that case I think all we need are some supplies and we’ll be on our ways. To adventure!” cried Owlowsicious!
*Noctuam is simply Latin for "owl" but thats how the world works. when something dosent sound cool enough, just translate it into another language ;)
