Ch.1 Change of heart (and mind)
It has been a few days seance Discord was once again trapped in stone. At first he did not mind so much, it was something he was used to.
Encased in stone what eales is new?
'Now I can come up with new forms of chaos for when I get free' discord thought to himself.
Alone with his thoughts discord began to remember his life the last time he was turned to stone. The endless silence and boredom is all that he could remember. The unbearable, unending silence.
Discord began to fear his prison.
'I have to get out soon, that...that torturing boredom. I won't be able to take it again.' Discords fears were well founded. The silly insanity that had been his personality last time he escaped was caused by the thousand years he spent incased in stone. This time his mind would not have a chance to stay sane.
As the months passed Discord's mind began to crack. The memories of his last time here along with thought that he could be here for another thousand years, the time on the outside of the prison didn't matter to him it could have been four minutes or five hundred years, it wouldn't matter to him, it always felt like an eternity.
On the outside the months past and the seasons changed. Madness consumed Discords mind and after a while it shattered. Discord went through a very chaotic process where his mind would break into small little pieces and he would try and put it back together. This caused his personality to change drastically. First he was very happy, to the point that he was laughing to himself uncontrollably. Next he was sad, crying and balling his eyes out. This continued for a time, Discords mind would break again soon after he put it back together. No matter which way he put it back he could not keep sane.
It had been nearly a year seacn he was put back into his prison and Discord wasn't doing so well. His mind was still in pieces and he was still putting it back together. This latest try was a long one, carful to make sure this time he wouldn’t fall into another fit of madness. After the final peace went into place Discords mind settled and he felt sane again.
'Finally I can think clearly.' Discord knew the madness would take him soon if he could not break the boredom so he did the only thing he could.
'Some new forms of chaos? hm....'He went through every form of chaos he knew. From cotton candy clouds that rained chocolate milk to flying pigs and everything in between. 'I’ve done this all before. There has got to be something new.'
Discord hated the same mundane things over and over again. Even though his chaos wasn’t mundane, he would kiss Luna’s hoof before he allowed someone to think he was repeating himself. But the old random tricks weren’t going to cut it. He didn’t find them as, well...fun as they used to be. But what other chaos could there be?
Just then Discord saw a pony pass by his statue. She was a young mare with light blue body and bright pink mane. She seemed to hum as she walked.
'She seems happy? And why wouldn't she?’ Last week she and her coltfriend had been walking through the garden, Discord had been on an anger trip due to his madness. But he would grab hold of anything that past his spot, just to help pass the boredom. The two ponies were enjoying their walk together when the colt, a tall and solid built gray colt with a white mane stopped and knelt down in front of the mare reviling a small box with a ring inside it. They were too far away for Discord to hear but he guessed what was happening. The earth mare screamed in shock and joy before tackling the gray colt yelling “YES!!!”
Discord had seen this before. The joy and happiness others felt from love. It brot up old memories, painful memories. He never felt anything from love but pain, heart reaching pain. The changes it caused in him were so much that you could say it made him into a different person. A Monster.
‘But this thought, that love could change someone so drastically, it was so...chaotic. This mare had walked through my spot in the garden before but never have I seen her hum or even smile. What’s next? Is she going to laugh?’
Just as Discord thought this he heard the sound of the light blue mare giggle as she sniffed a flower.
‘What was that? How can she just pull a 360 like that? Love could do such chaotic things to ponies?’
Discord began to like this idea of chaotic love. He wondered what would come from helping other ponies find their love. Would he see more chaotic events? There was of course the other side of love, its dark side. The pain he could cause on others, it would destroy most.
‘No! I’ve been through that and even I wouldn’t wish that on others. So it’s just the happy side?’ Discord pretended that he was stroking his beard. ‘This could work, if I could get out of here first.’ He laughed at the idea. He figured it would be another thousand years before then and he would be a different creature with a new mind by then, several if history had taught him anything.
Discord didn’t notice the crack that was forming along his chest.
-Midnight that day-
After many hours the stone that surrounded Discord finally fell away. The spirit stretched his arms and yawned
“so much time in the same position can really put a cramp in your neck” Discord placed his paw and claw on either side of his head and jerked it left hearing a loud crack, then to the right hearing an even lauder crack. Discord sighed “here we go” Sucking in a long breath he twists his head a full 360 digress around, this made several loud cracking sounds. Discord let go his head but it just stayed put.
“Now what to do first?” he stroked his beard for real now. “Now what should I do first? Hm….. I had something this morning. What was it? Something to do with love...Why can’t I remember? Dam it! It’s right on the tip of my tough.” As Discord flouted around the garden trying to remember his thoughts from earlier, he heard a noise rumbling from his belly. “Well I guess I should get something to eat. Can’t work on an empty stomach now, can I?” Discord could have made any food he wanted appear right in front of him but that wouldn’t be him would it. Snapping his fingers, he disappeared to find some food.
Celestia tossed and turned in her sleep. She was sweating and mumbling as her front legs flailed around knocking away imaginary things. Her mumbling turned into ranting and her movements became more rapid until she shot up yelling “NO!” Looking around she noticed she was still in her room, her large empty room. It was a peaceful night, same as every night. Celestia wiped the sweat from her face and untangled herself from the sheets.
She trotted around her room looking for something to get her mind off the nightmare she had, but seeing as her room was mostly empty, except for a bed and a few chairs, she was having a hard time doing so. After a few laps around the room and five or so minutes starring out the window Celestia decided to head to the royal kitchen to grab a late night snack.
Her hooves steps could be heard echoing through the halls of the castle as Celeastia walked down the endless hallways and wending staircases, looking for the elusive kitchen.
“Where is that door? I know it was around here somewhere.” Having all her meals brought to her Celeastia had not been to the kitchen in many years. “I swear, when I find the person responsible for the design of this castle I’m going to send them to the mo-. Finely!” Celeastia reached for the door (too tired to use magic) when she heard a noise coming from behind it. ‘Someone must have had the same idea as me. Could Luna be stealing my private stash of frozen roses again?’ the thought made Celeastia worried so she slammed the door open to cache her little sister in the act. What she found stunned her to the point of being unable to move. There in the middle of the kitchen, about to take a bite out of an eight layer turkey sandwich was Discord.
The thoughts going through Celeastia’s head were too many to keep track. ‘how did he break out’ ‘what was he doing in her kitchen’ ‘why had she not sensed him’ ‘why was he not causing chaos’ ‘where did he get the turkey for that sandwich if we are all vegetarian’ Those along with the thought of how she should fight him or how to get away if he proved too much for her to handle. Celeastia couldn’t leave her mind as these thoughts were screaming at her, but Discord who had only one thought when he saw Celeastia acted quickly. He snapped his fingers and appired behind Celeastia with a loud pop. Barely given time to react, Celeastia could do nothing to stop the draconequus from casting his spell. Waving his paw over Celeastia, Discord cast a spell a put her out like the flame on a candle. Still holding onto his sandwich Discord scoped Celeastia up with his other hand. Looking at both full hands Discord created a flouting hand next to him which snapped its fingers and teleported them out of the kitchen. Appearing in Celestia’s room Discord placed her on the bed and pulled the covers over her. Before Discord left he looked at Celeastia sleeping peacefully and his face softened. He could have had such a great life if it wasn’t for this evil angel. An evil and twisted thought crossed his mind as he looked at his index claw as it shined in the moon light. ‘It could be so easy, just like what she did only physical.’ Looking down at her, he noticed his sandwich. ‘On second thought I’d rather go and finish my sandwich’ with that Discord left, leaving a sleeping alicorn to dream and forget.
An hour later Discord finished his sandwich and was sitting on a large rock in the middle of the ever free. “Now that if had my dinner, or was it breakfast? Oh well doesn’t matter. What had I decided before? Love? Hmm? What does it matter? Now that I’m free I can do as I wish and with everyone asleep I can set up a plan to stop those elements and make this world over in chaos!! Ha HA HA!...But wait, I don’t…feel the same way as last time. There’s no voice screaming in my head, I really liked that voice.” Discord began to relies that there was no impulse to make everything around him chaotic. “What’s wrong with me? I have control over myself and I don’t feel like causing harm to others. I wonder if I even like chaos anymore.” Looking over at a few trees nearby Discord waves his claw over them, turning them into candy cains. “Ha Ha Ha, nope still love chaos. But what to do?.... I remember! I was going to make others lives happy and chaotic by introducing a bit of love. Not my best idea but its new. Now who should I start with? Hm..” Discord stroked his beard and thought of who would be the perfect target for his new chaos. “Eureka! Those six little ponies that sent me back into that stone hell. I do believe that I owe them one.” Laughing as he planed Discord looked into the future and found the perfect match for each of the six ponies. “Now I just have to get them to ponyville.”
I don’t know when I will update but my classes don’t start for a while and the stories I’m following are slow to update so I might start the next one tomorrow and see how far I get. I try to get close to 2000 words or above and I have a lot thought up for the next part so I just have to not be lazy and write it.
Just like Bioware and a proper ending MotherFuckers!!!!
P.S. I can’t spell for shit
Ch.2 Welcome to Ponyville
Discord flouted above Ponyville as the sun began to rise over the horizon. It had been a week since his escape from the stony purgatory of being a lawn ornament. For him it had been one busy week. First he had to replace his statue in the garden with a fake, but Celestia would find out the second she saw it. So he put some of his power in the fake. This way Celestia would still feel his presences and he was free to set up the rest of his plan. After the fake Discord was in place, he was on his way to all corners of Equestria to find the five colts that would bring his plan to action.
‘It had been tauph, that’s for sure. Being the god of chaos and I have to sneak around, making sure I don’t make a big scene.’ Discord thru his hands in the air and yelled at the open sky. “Why should I keep quiet? I am Discord, God of Chaos, bender of reality. I shouldn’t run and hide like a child.” His anger vented for a moment, Discord remembered what happened last time he was free. “I couldn’t stay hidden for five minutes and I got one day of chaos. Not this time! With this plan they won’t even know it’s me.” Discord laugh to himself as he watched the ponies below as they began to move throughout their morning routine.
Twilight opened the window shades letting in the shining light of her mentor’s gift. “Such a buitifull morning, today is going to be great” The purple unicorn made her way to the bathroom to clean up and get ready for today’s activities. Stopping a room before the bathroom, she knocks on the closed door. “Spike, time to wake up.” Twilight stood still for a moment and listened for a response. Not hearing one she knocked again. “Spike, its morning, time to wake up”
“Fine. I’m up. I’m up.” Came a sleepy response from behind the door.
“Don’t forget to make your bed again” Twilight yelled before heading to the bathroom.
“ I know. I know.” Spike said before rolling over in his bed and falling back to sleep.
After cleaning herself up Twilight left the bathroom and found that Spike’s door was still shut and she could hear his snoring from behind it. “Spike it’s time to wake up!” Twilight was getting annoyed. She knocked a few more times and with no response she used her magic and opened the door very slowly. On the other side of the room was a large basket and in it was a small sleeping, snoring, purple dragon. Twilight crept up to the basket without making a sound and looked down on the sleeping lizard. “He’s so cute when sleeps” Twilight rememberd when she first hatched him. For thirteen years she raised him, now he was getting too big for her to keep worrying over. ‘I’ve got some good training for when I have kids at least. Of cours first I need to find the right stallion.’ Her mind began to wonder as she looked out the window. ‘He would be smart and kind, and interesting oh and love books.’ Twilight’s mind began to fantasies about life with the ‘Perfect’ mate. This went on for several moments before Twilight shook her head. ‘No! That life can wait. I still have much I want to learn, much I want to read.’ The bookworm side of her mind crushed the filly side and took control. Turning her attention back to the lazy dragon that was still fast asleep in front of her, Twilight smirked and leaned her head down until she was inches from Spikes face. “Spiiiike.” She said with a soft tone. Spike moved a bit and mumbled something. “It’s time to, WAKE UP!!!!!” Twilight yelled in the little dragons ear (side of his head, dragons don’t have ears).
“AHHH! What’s going on? Who’s here?” the startled dragon looked franticly around the room until he spotted Twilight. “What was that for?” Spike looked angrily at his caretaker.
“You wouldn’t wake up the first few times, so I took a page from Dash’s book” Twilight walked toward the door. “Next time you’ll remember.”
Spike got out of his bed and thru his blanket on the ground. Just as he was about to make his way downstairs.
“Make your bed!” Yelled Twilight from the first floor.
“I did. Geesh, can’t get two minutes out of bed before you start ordering me around?”Spike left his room without going back to pick up his blanket.
As Spike entered the kitchen he was hit with the smell of pancakes cooking on the oven. His tongue fell out of his mouth, as the smell surrounded him. Not looking where he was going, Spike ran straight into the table. “Ow.” Rubbing his head, Spike hopped onto one of the chairs. “So, what’s the big deal? Why did you get me up so early?” Spike asked Twilight as she walked over with two plates staked with pancakes.
“What do you mean? I always get you up early to help me with the books.” Twilight handed Spick his plate, which he took eagerly, mouth watering.
“No, you try and wake me up early then let me sleep an extra hour. Why get me up today?” Spike tried not to talk with his mouth full but he was eating too fast.
“First of all, I don’t think Rarity would approve of you talking while you eat.” Spike blushed and wiped his mouth with a napkin. “Second, if you recall today is the start of the festival.”
“Holy cow! I almost forgot. This means no work for three days like you promised.” Spike had finished his pancakes and now was jumping around the kitchen like Pinky when she heard about a party. “This means three days I can spend with Rarity.”
Twilight was putting the dishes away. “Now Spike, you can’t just bug her for three days.”
“I’m not bugging her. She told me she needs help for her store. She said that ponies will come into her store for help with their cloths and dresses. Something about festivals causes ponies to want dresses fixed or altered. She said its easy work for good money but there is so many little things that she needs it are hard to get them all and keep up with orders.”
“Alright, as long as you’re not bugging her. She’s not going to work all day is she? It would be a waste to work through the entire festival.” Twilight was getting her things together before heading out.
“These next few days are going to be alsom-“BAM!! CRASH!!! BOOM!!! CRACK!!! CRASH!!!
“What was that?” Twilight yelled as she and Spike ducked for cover. The Noise and shaking came from the upper layers of the library but soon made their way through the roof of the center room. Twilight looked up and what she saw confused her in more ways than one.
Coming through the roof of the library was a mess of tangled twigs, branches, sticks, some weird green canvas, but in the middle of it all, tangled in a large amount of rope, was a ghost white stallion. “Hiya”
After a few minutes Twilight had collected her thoughts and now stood up to get a better look at their home wreaker. He was still stuck in the rope, trying to get loose, but having no luck. “Little help might be needed here” he said with a small laugh. His movement had now caused him to start spinning slowly.
“Who are you? What did you do to my house! And how did you fall through my roof?” was the first thing out of Twilights’ mouth. She watched as the pony hanging from her ceiling tried desperately to get untangled.
“I’ll tell you anything you want, but only after you help me down. Please, I’m going to throw up.” Twilight couldn’t leave a pony in trouble and plus she was starting to get dizzy looking at him.
“Fine, Spike.” Who had been hiding behind the kitchen door. “If you would ‘help’ our guest down.”
“On it.” Spike walked over to a bookshelf and began to climb. When he reached the top he jumped to the next one and the one after that. Soon he was within jumping distance of the mess that hung from the ceiling. After one last, big jump, Spike was on top of the pony, crawly around using his claws to cut the ropes were he found them.
“Ha Ha, wait stop not there, Ha Ha. This little, Ha Ha, guy is moving too, Ha Ha, much. He’s, Ha Ha, tickling me. Ha Ha Ha H-Ah!” BAM! “ Ow”
“There, now you’re down.” Twilight had to hold back a laugh. Spike on the other hand, who was now back down on the floor was holding his sides laughing.
“Could have warned me.”
“Your name now!” Twilight had had enough of this pony and wanted answers. The stallion got to his hooves and knocked off some dust from his legs. Now that he wasn’t hanging from the ceiling Twilight got a better look at him. He was a unicorn, white body with messy long black hair. His cutie mark was a question mark and the weirdest thing was his left eye was changing color.
“Ex is my name and I’m sorry for crashing into your home.” He raised a hoof to greet Twilight properly.
“I’m Twilight Sparkle, and this is my assistant Spike.” She raised her hoof to meet his. “Now how did you end up coming through my roof?”
Looking away from Twilight Ex answered. “Weellllll. It’s a long story.”
“You’ve got five seconds.” Twilight wasn’t going to let this pony off the hook.
“Alright what do you know about Codlens?”
“They’re an old foal story used to scare pegasus foals from staying up to late.”
“But do you know what they are? Small goblin like creatures that live in large clouds.”
“They don’t exist so what do they have to do with you and my roof?” Twilight pointed to the mess above them.
“I’m getting to that. Now you say they don’t exist but how do you know?”
“Because I have a book on every living thing in Equestria and they aren’t in any of them.” Twilight waved her hooves at the array of books on the shelves, some scattered on the floor.
“Books? Who needs them?” Ex waved his hoof like he was shooing away a cat.
“How can you say that? Books are how we learn and teach others. They’re an invalibul source of knowledge. They keep a record of history and help us learn valuable skills. Books are one of the most important things on this planet.” Twilight took a long breath and calmed herself down.
“I take it you like books.” Smiling at the angered unicorn
“You don’t know the half of it.” Spike added
“So if a book tells you that something isn’t real, you believe it?”
“What if the books just don’t talk about it? Do you assume it’s not real?”
“I guess, but that doesn’t mean that Codlens are real.”
“That right there is what I’m talking about. The assumption that books know all and that if you question them you’re an idiot.”
“So, what? You tried to prove that Codlens were real? How? Unicorns can’t fly and Codlens live in clouds. Wait, that thing” she pointed to the heap that Spike had gotten from the hole on the roof and left on the floor. “You were using that thing to fly?”
“It’s one of my inventions. It allows me to glide through the air. I just…well… lost control after I passed through a cloud. Then before I knew it I hit your tree.” Ex rubbed his shoulder and winced in pain.
“Well I hope that proves that books are useful.” Twilight said with her head held high.
“That glider I built was because a book I read when I was little that said that unicorns couldn’t fly. I proved it wrong and I’ve proven hundreds of books wrong. I don’t plan to stop because of one mistake.”
“Fine do what you want just get out of my house.” Twilight pointed toward the door.
Ex slowly shuffled his way to the door, then he stopped and faced the mare once again. “ I know this sounds wired to ask but I need a place to stay and I don’t know too many ponies here. Could I… you know… stay here?” He put on his best innocent face.
“You crash into my house make fun of books and now you want me to let you stay here?”
“Pleeeeease.” Ex’s eyes grew three times their size and his bottom lip stuck out.
Twilight couldn’t stand it and caved. “Fine. But on one condition. Fix. My. Roof!”
Ex shot up with a smile from ear to ear. “You got it. This is a tree right? I’ll have it done in an hour.”
Twilight grabbed her bag and made for the door. “I doubt that, but as long as you get it fixed. Come on Spike we’ve wasted enough time.” Twilight reached for the door, but just as she was about to open it. She was knocked into the back wall by a pink flash that jolted through the door.
“MORNING TWILIGHT! ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE FESTIVAL? HU? HU? HU? ARE YA?” a pink pony yelled at a disoriented Twilight.
“Good morning Pinky. Yes I’m excited but could you let go of me?” Pinky let go of Twilight and turned a greeted Spike before spying a white pony in the corner of the room, frightened by how she greeted her friend.
“HI I know you. Ex, we meet yesterday right? Find a place to stay yet?”
“ Y-Ya, I’m staying here. After I fix the hole in the roof.” Pinky just now noticed the gaping hole above her.
“WOW! That really lets light in here. You should keep it Twilight.” Twilight now recovered from her friends greeting.
“No Pinky, I have enough windows I don’t need a skylight. Did you have something you needed from me because I was just about to head out?” Pinky was still looking happily at the hole in the roof, but Twilights question caught her attention.
“I almost forgot I have somepony you have to meet!” Twilight was pushed out the door by Pinky. The rest of the town was a blur as Pinky pushed Twilight quickly along. They stopped finally in front of a new house that had been built recently. Pinky knocked on the door and waited for the owner to answer. When the door finally opened the pony behind it stepped out and made his way next to Pinky. “Twilight, I’d like you to meet Zip, my coltfriend.”
You’ll have to wait till next time HA HA HA!!!!!
Ch.3 Love, Bravery, and explosions
“what!? Wait. He’s your what?” Twilight asked her happy and bouncing friend.
“Like I said, he’s my coltfriend.” Pinky stated happily as she nuzzled Zip’s neck.
The pony in question just smiled and laid his head on Pinky’s. He wasn’t a big stallion, but he stood a few inches above Pinky. He was a brown and his mane and tail were ghost white. Twilight couldn’t see his cutie mark because Pinky was practically rubbing the left side of his body as she fawned over him.
“How did-? When did you meet? Normally you would have a party for something like this.” Pinky never needed a reason to have a party but this seemed like a good one.
“ Oh! I just forgot! You have to hear how we meet. It’s the most spectacular, grandest, most romantic story EVER!” The pink pony ignoring what her friend had said and began her flashback.
The hyper active pink pony made her way through Ponyville making sure that everything was Pinky approved for the festival. “ Candy, popers, music, cupcakes” she held up a pink cupcake and shoved it in her mouth, eating it all in one go. “ yep everything good so fa- ‘GASP!” Pinky spotted a new house on the south end of the town. There were moving ponies making their way in and out of the house carrying various things into the house. “ A new house! Moving ponies! GASP! That means… A NEW FRIEND!!!!” The happy pony shot like a bullet across the street and right to the front door of the new home.
“ Well Tom I owe you five bits.” One moving pony said to another.
“ I told you. Never underestimate Pinky.”
Pinky ignored the movers as they packed up the truck. She knocked on the door and waited with a smile that went literally from ear to ear. As the door opened slightly Pinky wasted no time and began her introduction. “ Hi! My names Pinky Pie and I’m here to welcome you to Ponyville! I just saw the movers putting your things in your new house and I thought to myself, that must be someone new, then I thought I hadn’t seen that house before, and that made me sad because I thought I hadn’t been friends with the last owners.” She made a sad face and drooped her head. Zip had opened the door more, concerned for the now sad looking mare. “But! Then I remembered” her head shot up and her smile covered the bottom half of her face. “ they built this house a month ago. I remember because I was happy to know that someone new was going to move to Ponyville. Now I have two new friends!” Pinky’s smile faded slightly “ That is if you want to be my friend?”
“ Sure.” Was all that Zip said. Pinky jumped up with joy. She would have continued but she realized she hadn’t taken a breath senses she said hi. Taking some quick breaths Pinky let the air reach her brain. Zip let out a chuckle and offered Pinky a drink.
Pinky agreed in an instant earning another chuckle from Zip. He lead her inside and left her in the main room while he went in to the kitchen to fetch something to drink. Pinky began to look around noticing the many nicknacks and photos. One photo on the wall caught her attention. It was a picture of a young Zip and two happy looking Clowns on ether side of him. Pinky was examining the picture when Zip walked back into the room, holding two glasses on a tray, both were filled with a brown liquid.
“ here something I found on my front door last week. It’s really good with cupcakes.” At the sound of the word cupcakes Pinky shot at Zip getting centimeters from his face.
“ YOU LIKE CUPCAKES?!!!!?!!???!!?!!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?”
“ love’em” he said not even flinching when Pinky didn’t move away from his face. “ So… drink?” Zip held a glass between them getting some distance from Pinky.
Pinky having taken an interest in this new pony didn’t look at what was in the glass before taking it and rasing it to her lips. “ thanks” Just as she was about to take a sip Pinky saw something out of the corner of her eye. “ OH MY GOSH!!!!” Pinky shoved the glass into Zip’s hooves and ran over to the other side of the room. She stopped and stared up at a very large book shelf filled with a verity of novels. “ I was right they’re all by Silent Mime. YOU READ SILENT MIME TOO!!” Pinky turned to Zip with a mix of happy, confused, and happy. “But that’s way too many books. I have all the ones that came out and I don’t have enough to fill up my book shelf.” Pinky was reading some of the titles. “ this one here, I don’t have this one, or this one. How do you have all of these they aren’t released yet?” Pinky now looked accusingly at the stallion. “ Did you steal them from the writer?” She changed to a look of shock. “ Do you know Silent Mime? Oh! What’s he like? Does he like parties? Oh what am I saying, every pony likes partys. But wait, how did you meet him? Does he really come up with his own work? OH wait where does he live? Oh what’s his favorite color? Wh-“ Zip put a hoof on Pinky’s mouth to stop the onslaught of questions. Pinky continued to finish her last question before stopping.
“ First let me say you have a gift with words. Second I love parties. Third my favorite color is pink.” Zip gave a happy and maybe a little lustful look at the now speechless mare.
“ You mean your-? And you wrote-? So that means” Pinky looked down at her hooves. For the first in her life she was tongue tied. Her cheeks started to turn red as she could feel the embarrassment burn across her face. This pony was her idol, every story he wrote had a happy ending and always a party. The hero always survived and the jokes he wrote were the things that kept her laughing in the darkest times. She fell in love with his stories the second she started reading them and now the one and only author of her dreams was standing right in front of her. She couldn’t believe she was even in the same room as him let alone talking to him. “ So um, I sorta had a little, tiny crush on you” Pinky still couldn’t look at him.
“I kind of figured that.” Zip put the glasses down and walked closer to Pinky. “ You know I never met a pony that had such a talent for talking before.” With each word and every step Pinky’s heart beat increased. Her breathing became difficult and when he stopped in front of her she looked up and found him inches from her face. “ You do look cute with that shade of red on your face.” Pinky couldn’t think, she couldn’t breath, her legs were shaking.
Without any thought (When does Pinky ever think before doing something) She lowered her eye lids and gave the stallion a seductive look. “Hope you taste good.” Pinky whispered before ramming her mussel into Zip’s. locking his lips in hers and sealing him in a long passionate kiss.
-end of flashback-
“ After that we agreed to date.” Pinky had finished her story and was hopping up and down next to the new pony. “So what do you think Twilight? Greatest story ever right? Right?”
Twilight had listened to the entire story but some things just didn’t add up. “ That seems a bit too early to just start dating. I mean you two just meet.” She knew Pinky wasn’t dumb but she rarely thought things through all the way.
“ Please be ok with this Twilight. Your one of my best friends, everyone’s my friend but your one of my best ones. I don’t want you to not approve of Zip. He’s really kind, and sweet, and tall, and strong ,and he’s funny ,and can do tricks, and-“
“ Ok ,Ok I get it, you like him a lot.” Twilight looked at Zip accusingly. “ So… you like Pinky?” Zip nodded yes. “ You want to date her?” Zip nodded yes. “ You won’t hurt her?” Zip shook his head no. “ You know I’m the element of magic right? If you hurt Pinky you know what I’ll do to you right?” Zip looked a little worried, can’t blame him when he’s being threatened by one of the six elements. He nodded his head yes. “ Fine, I guess I can be ok with this.”
“ YES!! THANK YOU TWILIGHT!!!” Pinky screamed and pulled Twilight in for a big hug. “ Thank you, thank you, thank you!!” letting Twilight go Pinky shot next to Zip. “ Did you hear that? She doesn’t hate you.” Zip smiled at Pinky and let out a small laugh.
Twilight noticed something else was off about this pony. “ Pinky, in your flash back Zip spoke, so why haven’t heard him speak yet?” The stallion hadn’t said a word yet and it was bugging Twilight.
“ Oh, that? That’s simple. See Zip said he has a phobia of speaking in front of anyone. Even with his parents he can’t say but a few words.” Pinky was back to nuzzling Zip’s neck. “ When he told me, he said that for some reason he can talk to me. He said I’m special.” Zip leaned his head down and locked lips with Pinky for a deep kiss. Twilight felt a little embarrassed for watching.
“ So… I’m going to get going. Let you two love birds alone.” As Twilight backed away from Pinky and Zip a piercing roar was heard all over Ponyville. It stopped ponies in their tracks and chilled the blood of the most hardened Ponies. Twilight stood still, locked in place, but her courage took hold and she bolted toward the edge of the Everfree were the roar came from.
‘ why did I have to come to this spot? Why now? Why here?’ Fluttershy mentally cursed her bad luck. She was now in one of the worst situations she had the misfortune to wined up in. Cowering behind a rock, she was trying to hide from a very large and very angry Chimera. She just wanted to go home. Crawl back into bed and wake up from this nightmare. ‘ I had to take a walk. I had to sniff the flowers. Then I had to try and talk to the big sleeping Chimera. I just hope he doesn’t-‘ The Chimera, finding his pray, grabbed hold of the large rock and tossed it over its head. “ Buck.” As the beast raised its giant paw to strike its breakfast Fluttershy was saying her prairs and flashing back over her life. Twilight along with Pinky and several other ponies were running toward the scene but they just weren’t fast enough. Just as the beast was about to bring down its massive paw (Discord was on the edge of his seat watching the whole thing), their came from the sky a loud “DOG PIEAL”. Like a shot out of Pinky’s party canon, a Pegasus slammed into the Chimera.
The force of the hit knocked the Chimera to the ground. Quickly recovering and now pissed the beast now took aim at his new pray. The Pegasus was caramel color with blue mane and tail and he was up and ready for the Chimera.
“Come on.” The Pegasus tontied the growling animal. “Let’s see what’s yer made of.” The Chimera lunged foreword to tackle its new meal. The pony had been ready for this and instead of standing his ground he went with the Chimera and as the beast grabbed hold of him it hit the ground and rolled. Twilight and Pinky made it to Fluttershy but were lost in what they saw. The Pegasus was holding his own against the beast. They continued to role as the pony kicked and bit the Chimera. The large animal couldn’t keep up with the pony, never able to get a hold of him.
After five minutes of brawling the beast had been bested. The pony had the Chimera’s left ear in his mouth. “ Now! Are you going to go back to the forest and hunt there?” The Chimera didn’t move so the pony bit down hard on his ear. The Chimera let out a yelp and shook its head yes. “Good. Now apologies to her” he pointed to Fluttershy. Letting go of his ear, the Chimera grovelled and growled at Fluttershy.
“ That’s ok. I woke you up so it was my fault.” The Chimera walked back to the forest slowly after the Pegasus that whooped his ass gave it the ok.
“Are you alright Fluttershy? Did the Chimera hit you any were?” Twilight looked her friend over checking for cuts and bruises.
“ No, I’m fine. Luckily that pegasus showed up when he did.” Fluttershy looked around for the pony that had saved her life but spotted him of in the distance. “ Wait! Sir!” Fluttershy left her friends and ran after her savior. “ Please slow down. I just want to thank you.” She had now caught up to the caramel pony.
“ It was nothin. I always help if I can.” Fluttershy now had a chance to look at this brave pony. His eyes were green and his cutie mark was a wooden chair turned on its side and a cracking whip. She couldn’t help staring at his eyes. They calmed her and made her lose her train of thought. “ If you don’t mind ma’m, I’m going to take my leave now.” His words brought her back to reality.
“ Oh, ok. Well I hope I see you around the festival tomorrow.” Fluttershy waved by.
“ Me too.” Just as he was turning to walk away a pain in his chest caused him to fall and chough.
“ Oh my! Are you ok? You were hurt in the fight weren’t you?” Fluttershy helped the injured pony up. “ I know a lot of first aid and my cottage is nearby. Let me help you there.”
“ No, it’s fine. I can take care of my sel-Ah!” He fell in the dirt and began a coughing fit. Wezzing in and out as he struggled for air.
“ You are definitely hurt.” Fluttershy pulled the Pony up a second time. “Please I won’t be able to sleep tonight if I leave you like this. Let me help you.” She pleaded with the Pony, her shyness gone when it came to helping those in need.
Recovering from his fall and getting a few good breathes, also noticing the yellow pegasus next to him smelled like a field of flowers in spring, he responded to her. “ I guess it wouldn’t hurt to get myself checked out. Just no needles, I have a thing about sharp metal spikes.”
Fluttershy grew a big smile across her face and agreed happily. “ Right this way Mr.- um”
“Leon, My name is Leon Tamer.” Leon leaned against Fluttershy for support as they walked foreword. “ And your name?”
“ Oh..my name is..” Fluttershy just now realized how close this new stallion was. The embarrassment was easy to spot across her face, but she hid underneath her hair. Without looking up from the ground( knew the way home by heart) “ My names Fluttershy”
“Sorry, didn’t hear you. What was it?”
“I’m sorry, I must have hit my head. I still can’t make that out”
“Fluttershy.” She didn’t know how she managed that one.
“Fluttershy? Hm? Pretty name.
‘I guess if she says she’s ok.’ Twilight was on the way back to Ponyville, today was starting to become an annoyance and she had too many things to get done.
“ Some exciting stuffs happn’en today”
Twilight didn’t take noticed to the white Pony with black mane standing next to her. “ Ya, first there’s Pinky Pie being Pinky Pie. Now a Chimera attack. What elaes could happen?” The Pony next to her just smirked and waited for it to hit. Three, two, one. “hold up.” Twilight turned in mid-step. “What are you doing here?” She pointed to the unicorn that crash into her home this morning. “ I thought you were supposed to be fixing my roof.”
“ All done.” Ex smiled and gave look that said ‘ I’m satisfied with myself’
“ That was less than two hours ago. There is no way, even with magic, that you got it done.”
“ just don’t believe it” Twilight looked up at what used to be a large hole in her roof was now an extra room. “How in Celestia’s name did you do it?” She looked dumbfounded at her house guest
“ Easy, magic” Ex said with an easy going, what was the big deal tone.
“But there’s no spell that could grow a tree that quickly. I’ve read every book available about spells. Did you use some kind of potion from Zacora?”
“ No. I used magic.” Ex was starting to get annoyed at defending his ways.
“ But I told you I read every book and-“
“ Books are the worst when it comes to magic. There isn’t any book that has this spell because I invented it.” Ex took a proud stance.
“ That’s impossible. No unicorn, but the best and most experienced can ever invent a spell. So how did somepony like you do it?” Twilight gave a very condescending look to the strange pony.
“ If you must know i did it by accident.” Ex turned his nose up at Twilight to give off the sense that he was better.
“Accident? How did you invent a spell by accident?” This conversation was getting very confusing.
“ I was running some tests on acorns to see if I could make them chewy and I-“ Twilight cut him off their.
“ hold on. You wanted to make acorns chewy?”
“ no I wanted to turn them into bubblegum, but one step at time. Anyways, I thought that if I pored raw magic into the acorn I could change the molecular structure by controlling the magic that it absorbed.” Twilight was somewhat more surprised. What he was saying was smart and made sense, even if it was completely nuts. (Pun :D) “ but what happened was the seed absorbed the raw magic and fed off of it to grow. The first time it happened I had a tree stuck in the middle of my house.” Ex laughed at the memory. “ so there you have it. New spell and a fixed roof.”
“ But that doesn’t make sense.” Twilight argued
“ What fun is there in making se-“ BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!
The ground shook and the walls of the library groaned.
“ What the hell was that?!” Ex got up off the floor.
Twilight looked outside to see if she could see what had happened. She scanned the town until she noticed a tower of smoke coming over the hill. “ Oh no!” Twilight ran out the door with Ex close behind her. They and many other ponies ran off in the direction the smoke was coming from,
Sweet Apple Acres.
