Against my better judgment, I approached the fallen Princess Luna and the grieving Princess Celestia. I came close and through the forelegs of the Sun Princess I saw a wondrous sight. Princess Luna was not dead. The wound the sword of light had inflicted on her was still there and it was deep, but rather than seeing blood coming from the open area of flesh, I saw vapors of silver light flowing into the air.
The Princess of the Night was still breathing shallowly, but her horn glowed with a purple aura, and the wound slowly began to close. As the process neared completion, the Maiden’s green and yellow stars flew away from Princess Luna’s body and engulfed Princess Celestia. Princess Luna eyes opened, she hesitantly began to stand, and gingerly began to walk towards the doors of the cathedral where the Elements of Harmony were kept.
Princess Celestia’s body stood as well, and the Maiden spoke though Princess Celestia, “Go with Dusk; she knows what must be done.”
We quickly caught up with Princess Luna who had reached the large doors to the cathedral. “Please..open them for me,” she whispered to us.
The Doctor and I grabbed the doors by their handles and pulled them open slowly and with great effort.
Lyra stood close to Princess Luna and looked up to her, “If you’d like, you could lean on me Princess,”
“You are very kind, little one,” she said with a small smile, and she placed her right front hoof over Lyra’s back.
We slowly made our way down the long carpeted aisle leading to a large door with six circles on it. Princess Luna slipped her horn into a lock located in the center of the door, and the door began to glow as patterns of light formed on its surface. The doors slowly opened, and a chest was revealed.
“Take it Doctor,” Princess Luna said, and the Doctor stepped into the chamber and accepted the burden of the chest.
“We have less than four hours now,” the Doctor commented worriedly. He looked to Princess Luna, “Can you still teleport? I need to get to my ship.”
“I cannot do it alone, I would need help.”
“You have us,” I said, and Lyra smiled warmly up to the Princess.
“Very well. I will quickly teach you. What is your name, little one?”
“I’m Lyra Heartstrings.”
“Lyra Heartstrings, please kneel.” Lyra stepped in front of her Princess and knelt.
“And you as well, Adam the Human,” she looked to me. I knelt to one knee before her. She lightly placed her horn tip on Lyra’s horn, and there was a spark. She then placed her horn near my forehead, and it sparked me as well.
Vast and incredibly complex information flowed into my mind, and it almost drove me mad trying to comprehend it. Very quickly the confusion was replaced with understanding, and I knew I could do it. I stood up and walked a few steps away from the group, and I sliced the air with my fingers.
The Dominion Gauntlet surged with arcane power, and a rift opened in the air, with colors coming from it I had never seen before. “It’s so beautiful.” The colors swirled and ate each other, and I knew which way we needed to go in order to get to the Tardis, “Alright, let’s go.”
“Lead the way; I will guide you, and Lyra Heartstrings will be our rearguard.” We all stepped through the hole in reality, and Lyra closed it up behind us, leaving behind Princess Celestia and the Maiden.
