Canterlot Castle, the most prestigious castle in all of Equestria. Serving as a home to nobles of all kinds, the royal guard and to the Royal Sisters and their distant relatives, including Blueblood and Cadance. Though Bloodblood is a unicorn and Cadance is a unicorn pegasus, commonly referred as an alicorn, they are from the same parents. But that doesn’t excuse the bitter relationship they have at one another. Since they were little foals, they would bicker and insult one another. Once they reached adulthood they agreed to stay out of each other’s way so the castle could stay in one piece in case they have another tantrum.
Unfortunately, they have to meet each other to plan out a certain event that is about to come up. They were staying in one the many courtyards of the castle going through paperwork and schedules to see if the event could be mapped out perfectly.
“So. Shining Armor.” Blueblood said as he was writing notes on his copy of the schedule.
“Yes. We’ve known each other for a long time and you know that.” His sister replied. “I’m surprised that you didn’t through a fit over it.”
Blueblood cocked an eyebrow. “What makes you say that? I’m your brother, and yes we do have our fights every now and then, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t support you.”
“I also need to change my act and apologize to Ms. Rarity. I was..unkind to her.”
“I’ve heard. Shining Armor chewed you out for that one. Which makes me beg to ask, why do you act such a pain and a snob? Please don’t tell me that the food you ate from the Apple family mare at the Gala was terrible?”
“Sister, you know about the pressure I get from the other nobles. And about the tart I ate, it was delicious, but that doesn’t excuse the act I portrayed.”
“I hope you aren’t just saying that just to shut me up.”
Before Blueblood would reply, a possible start another fight, a loud crash was heard, but instead of investigating, the guards guarding the siblings simply rolled their eyes.
“What was that?” asked Blueblood.
“Shining Armor’s new assignment.” Answered one the guards, who was a pegasus.
“What assignment is this?”
“Keeping an eye on a group of newcomers and make sure they stay in the castle.”
“Did they break any law?” Cadance asked, concerned.
“No.” answered the other guard, who was a unicorn. “But, her highness, Princess Celestia, left a changed pony after she met the group. She’s currently staying in her quarters, asked not to be disturbed. Especially by the grey one of the group.”
Another, but much louder crash was heard and the captain of the Royal Guard barged out of glass double doors that led into the courtyard that the four where in.
Panting, “Have…you..seen them?” he asked, sweating like mad.
“No sir. Are they trying to get out again?” the unicorn guard asked.
“Yes. Get inside and look for them. They got hold of the fireworks and a carriage. I think you can put two and two together.” Shining Armor ordered.
The two guards saluted and the unicorn guard went inside and the pegasus guard went up in the air. The royal siblings turned to Shining Armor.
“What is going on?” asked Cadance.
“To be honest, Judgment Day. These ponies are worse than you, Blueblood.”
“Are they trying to take over the country?” asked Blueblood, in a theatrical angry voice.
“No. They were told to stay indoors. They must have some kind of ADD, because they got bored and are now trying to get out.”
A siren began to blare and in the distance a carriage, which looked like it was flames, was speeding across the air, with dozens of pegasus royal guards in pursuit.
Shining Armor looked in horror.
“Sweet Celestia, they succeeded.”
“Who succeeded?” asked Cadance and Blueblood in unison.
