In the Palace Gardens, a statue stood, a creature formed from the parts of various others. It was captured in the oddest way, its every feature expressing a state of panic.
A guard approached it, smirking slightly. It wasn't that scary, not even in the light of the full moon. "Discord. What a joke. He didn't even have a good sense of humor." He walked around the statue as the talked, before noticing something odd. "...that fang's on the wrong side of his face...what's going on here?"
He tapped the stone tooth, curious. He leaped back as the statue fell to the ground, but didn't shatter. "...he's loose..." In horror, he tripped over himself before running straight to the princesses. "HE'S LOOSE!"
Lyra came out of the store, her back piled high with muffins. "Here's the fifty muffins you-" She quickly realized she was being ignored. "Hey, Ditzy, Derpy! The least you could do is-"
The muffins sprouted arms and legs, jumping off the unicorn's back and attacking Ditzy, effectively burying her. Derpy quickly leaped into the pile, eating the muffins as she went.
The mint-green mare stared at the events in front of her, confused. "...just what is going on around here!?"
"Ah, I do enjoy chaos, don't you?"
They all turned to the voice, half of them stunned to see Discord standing there, eating a watermelon and spitting out balloons. The other half were staring at him, not trusting him to stay his distance. Vinyl, for her part, muttered a few choice words about a writer and lack of creativity.
The god of chaos turned to Vinyl, a grin on his face. "I should thank you, Miss Scratch." She gave him a confused stare, but continued before she could talk. "If it weren't for your rap battles, I don't think I would have ever gotten out."
He grinned even wider, turning around, arms wide. "Why, it's nice to see-" He blinked, seeing a large, dark sapphire mare instead of the white one he was expecting. "...you. Hello, Luna."
She glared daggers at him, landing on the ground before poking him in the chest with her hoof. "You know you don't belong here any more. Nopony likes your chaos, save for that Screwball mare. You should've stayed a statue!"
"My dear Luna, you offend me! I demand the chance to defend my honor!" He turned back to Vinyl, his smile slowly returning. "And I know just the way I will do so."
Vinyl sat for a moment behind her turntables, staring at the two powerful beings on her stage. They had been handed mics. Luna kept fiddling with hers, since it kept bopping her in the nose when she moved. Finally having enough, she tossed it back to the DJ and picked up a wireless headset, putting it on and feeling much more relaxed.
In the front of the audience, a small colt stood, staring up at the princess with a starstruck expression in his eyes. "Go, Luna! You can do it!"
Discord, on the other hand, was relaxing on a cloud of cotton candy. From somewhere in the audience, a voice could be heard cheering his name. He waved a hand sedately at the pink pony with the beanie cap.
Vinyl shook her head, wondering just how she got roped into this. Giving a small sigh, she started up the music. As it began, she couldn't help but give a small smirk, wondering just how this battle would turn out.
EPIC RAP BATTLES OF MLP!
Mission begin! This is bound to be a cinch.
Far easier than beating on a sentry with a wrench.
I'll Fus-Ro-Dah on your flank like the Dovahkiin
Give you Amnesia - scare you right out of your skin!
You think you're so great with your chocolate rain?
Please! You wouldn't know humor if it pierced your stupid brain!
I'm the one who's gonna win. I mean, really, there's no contest!
I struck fear in ponies' hearts. All you did was make a mess.
My dear Luna, you should really spend less time on Steam.
If you think you can beat me, you're living a dream.
You've lost sight of what's real and what's illusion.
After a thousand years away, you choose to be in seclusion!
Your raps are so weak, they even make Tom seem to live.
Take your abacus and count the flying feathers I give.
Even for you, it should be easy, as the answer is none.
You'll be crying for your sister by the time that I'm done.
WE CONTROL ALL OF THE BODIES IN SPACE.
WE COULD TAKE THE MOON AND CRASH IT ON YOUR FACE.
OR RAIN METEORS ON TOP OF YOU INSTEAD.
EITHER WAY, DISCORD, YOU'D BEST WATCH YOUR HEAD!
Your power's worthless when I can poof threats away.
I become stronger with every word you say!
You made the night sky but you envy the day.
Just take a trip to the moon, girl - have a nice stay.
PRINCESS LUNA HAS BEEN BANISHED TO THE MOON!
SHE CAN'T CONTINUE THE BATTLE, SO -
WHAT'S THIS? THE SUN IS RISING EARLY!?
NO, WAIT! THAT'S NOT THE SUN! IT'S...IT'S-
Discord, if what you say is indeed true
I'll just love and tolerate the fight out of you.
You enjoy a good laugh, as do I, my dear.
But you need to kick your pranks into high gear.
Dancing buffalo just aren't cutting it, Dis.
I'm sure Screwball has some good ideas for us.
I rather agree that some fun needs to be had
But not from somepony who never had a dad.
Don't speak, my friend. I know just how you'll reply.
After all, you're a figment of my mind - you can't deny.
My goodness, what's wrong? You look rather weak, hun.
Grab your shades - I got you a room on the sun.
WHO WON? WHO'S NEXT? YOU DECIDE!
