Out Of Control
Trixie followed Twilight into the library. Twilight closed the door behind them with her magic. Looking around the room at the many books that stocked the shelves, Trixie was suddenly reminded of the book still tucked inside her cloak. "Oh, by the way, Twilight, Trixie had almost forgotten." she said, floating her mother's autobiography out towards the purple mare. "Trixie finished it this morning, so she now returns it to you." she finished.
Twilight's magic wrapped around the familiar book. She pulled it close to her and wrapped her hooves around it, hugging it to her chest. "Thank you so much, Trixie." Twilight said, smiling. She walked over to Trixie and nuzzled her neck as she continued to hug the book to her chest.
"You... you're welcome, Twilight. Trixie thanks you for letting her borrow it." Trixie said, blushing a bit and nuzzling back against Twilight's neck, then planting a small kiss in the same spot. Twilight's ear twitched in response.
"Ummmm... Trixie? Do you think you can tell me more about the Powerful Pyrite? The Great Lapis hardly ever wrote about him in her autobiography." Twilight said. Trixie moved away from Twilight's neck so that she could talk to Twilight face to face.
"Trixie's mother was a very secretive person. She liked to keep her work and her family separate, which is why she stopped using the Powerful Pyrite as an assistant in her performances after one tour. Trixie's father is a kind and caring man. He was absolutely devastated when the Great Lapis passed away. But he has raised Trixie well, and Trixie loves him very much. It was he who inspired Trixie to perform like her mother did, and he is a part of the only group to defeat an Ursa Major. He and eleven of his friends, who were collectively known as the Dominating Dozen, fought for hours on end, until the Ursa Major finally decided that it had taken enough of a beating and retreated back to its cave." Trixie said.
"I remember reading about that. It happened back when I was just a filly." Twilight said.
"Yes. It was when Trixie was just six years old. That is where Trixie got the idea for her Ursa Major story. She used to think that the Powerful Pyrite was the driving force behind the Dominating Dozen, that he didn't really need the rest to help him. So she thought, if the Powerful Pyrite could beat an Ursa Major all by himself, and she was stronger than the Powerful Pyrite, then why couldn't she be able to beat one as well?" Trixie said, frowning. "Trixie now knows that was a very foalish thing to think." she finished.
"It's okay, Trixie. The Ursa Minor wasn't your fault. You had no idea that Snips and Snails would go off to try to find an Ursa after your show." Twilight said, nuzzling against Trixie's cheek. Trixie moved back a little bit, and looked Twilight directly in the eyes again.
"Twilight... Trixie knew there was an Ursa Major living in the Everfree Forest. She had found out about it in Hoofington, and she was planning on going to find it and try defeating it after she left Ponyville. But thanks to that Ursa Minor, she knew that she could never even hope to defeat the Ursa Major by herself." Trixie said, tears in her eyes.
"Trixie, you don't mean..." Twilight started.
"Had that Ursa Minor not come to town, Trixie would have gone into the the Everfree Forest, and found both the Ursa Minor and the Ursa Major in their cave. She probably wouldn't have made it out alive. Ursas are horribly territorial. They will chase anything that dares come into their caves for miles." Trixie said.
"Trixie..." Twilight said, wrapping her forehooves around Trixie and pulling her into a tight embrace. Trixie still had tears streaming down her face and falling against Twilight's shoulder as she embraced the purple mare back, and she could feel Twilight's tears falling against her shoulders as well. The two mares stood there for a while, just holding each other in a tight embrace and crying on each other's shoulders.
"Twilight? Is something wrong?" Spike asked as he came down from upstairs. Twilight immediately seperated herself from Trixie. "I thought I heard you cry..." he said, then stopped mid-word as he saw Twilight with tears in her eyes, with Trixie standing near her, her back to him. "You! You made her cry, didn't you?" Spike asked Trixie, baring his teeth at her. Trixie immediately turned around to see one very angry baby dragon.
"No, wait, Spike!" Twilight finally managed to say in between sobs. She tried to dry her eyes with her hooves, and Trixie tried to do the same, and that's when Spike realized that Trixie had been crying as well.
"Wait... what's happening here?" Spike asked, confused. He would have never in a million years guessed that he would ever see the arrogant blue showmare crying.
"Trixie is sorry, Twilight. She was so foalish during her last visit here." Trixie said.
"It's okay, Trixie. That was then, and you've clearly learned your lesson." Twilight said.
"What lesson?" Spike asked, confused.
"Oh, that reminds me, Spike. There's a report that you need to send. It's on the desk there." Twilight said, pointing a hoof toward the desk that she had left the scroll on earlier that day.
"Okay, Twilight." Spike said, going over to the desk and grabbing the scroll in his claws, then tossing it in the air and breathing an impressive spurt of green fire on it, disintegrating it into a puff of grey smoke that floated out the nearest window.
"Trixie really is sorry. She didn't mean to make you cry." Trixie said.
"I just couldn't bear to think about that, Trixie. I'm sorry for getting so emotional." Twilight said.
"Trixie got emotional first, Twilight." Trixie said.
"Emotional about what? What the hay's going on with you two?" Spike asked.
"Well, umm... Trixie is my marefriend now, Spike." Twilight said, diverging from the true subject they had been talking about. It was just too much to even talk about the possibility of Trixie not being here with her right now, she would probably break out in another fit of crying if she did.
"Wait... this morning she was your teacher... now she's your marefriend? You're kidding, right? This is just way too weird to not be a joke." Spike said.
"It's not a joke, Spike." Twilight said, staring at Spike with serious eyes.
"Wait... you're really serious about this. You two are... together or something?" Spike asked, and Twilight nodded her head. "Wow. I didn't even know that you were into mares, Twilight. I mean, I know that we don't talk much about stuff like this, but still..." Spike said.
"Spike, you talk about Rarity almost non-stop sometimes!" Twilight said, and Trixie giggled.
"What's so funny? Spike growled at Trixie.
"It's just... Trixie never thought a dragon could have a crush on a pony." Trixie said.
"True love cares not about race." Spike sighed, his eyes sparkling and little hearts somehow manifesting in the air around him.
"Who said anything about true love? Trixie said a crush." Trixie said.
"You doubt that my love for Rarity is true?" Spike asked, snarling at Trixie
"Spike!" Twilight exclaimed, causing Spike to immediately stop. "Quit treating Trixie like an enemy! She hasn't done anything wrong that she's not already apologized for." she said.
"Whatever." Spike said in a sarcastic tone, causing Twilight to sigh in frustration.
Trixie glanced out the window. The sun was already setting. Just how long had Twilight and herself been talking, and how long had they been crying on each other's shoulders? "Twilight, it is getting late, and Trixie must be going now. She will see you tomorrow." Trixie said.
"All right, Trixie. See you tomorrow. Have a nice night." Twilight said, leaning close to Trixie and giving her a soft good night kiss.
"You too, Twilight." Trixie said, kissing Twilight back just as softly before walking out of the library and heading towards her home.
Twilight and Trixie had spent most of the next day talking together while snuggled against one another, occasionally sharing a passionate kiss or two. Now it was almost time for their double date with Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy. Suddenly, there was a loud knock on the library door. Twilight reluctantly got up from her position snuggled against Trixie's side, and opened the door with her magic. "Hello, Rainbow Dash. Hello, Fluttershy." she said to the two pegasi currently occupying the space outside the door.
"Hey! Are you girls ready to dance? You'd better be, cause DJ Pon3's playing tonight! She is so bucking awesome!" Dash said, ending her last sentence with a squeal of joy.
"We're ready, Dash." Twilight said.
"Yes, please, lead on. Trixie has heard many good things about this DJ Pon3." Trixie said, getting to her hooves.
"Here we are." Dash said, standing outside the building marked Club Hooflympus. The building had huge pillars, obviously inspired by griffon architecture, and Trixie could feel the thumping of the bass in the music playing even from out here. A bouncer pony, a blue unicorn stallion with a green mane styled into a mohawk and a matching tail, with a cutie mark of a silver shield, stepped in front of the four mares.
"Cutie marks, please." he said in a gruff voice. Trixie lifted the back of her cape with her magic, showing off her cutie mark by turning her side toward him. The other three simply turned their flanks toward the bouncer. "Right. Have a good time, ladies." he said, detaching the metal chain hanging in front of the doorway with his magic and pointing inside the club with a hoof. Rainbow Dash was the first inside, followed closely by Fluttershy, Trixie, and lastly Twilight, who seemed to be entranced by the building's pillars.
As Trixie climbed the last stair into the club itself, a new song that Trixie had heard before started playing. "Oh, my gosh! I love this song!" Dash exclaimed, and grabbed Fluttershy's hoof with her own, pulling the shy mare towards the dance floor. Trixie, interested in the music and the club itself, and also kind of wanting to get a look at DJ Pon3, followed, then looked behind her to see Twilight glued to the spot just inside the entrance to the club.
"Come on, Twilight! Trixie wants to dance with you!" Trixie called, snapping the nerdy unicorn out of her apparent trance.
"Oh! Sorry!" Twilight said, trotting to catch up with Trixie. Trixie reared up on her hind hooves, a practice that she had almost perfected during her shows, and Twilight started to do the same, but then she began waving her front hooves awkwardly through the air in front of her, her tongue hanging out a bit as if she was concentrating. Trixie had to giggle at Twilight's display.
"Twilight, that is the nerdiest dance Trixie has ever seen." Trixie said, and Twilight blushed. "Not that there's anything wrong with being nerdy, but some ponies might start to pick on you for it. Try dancing like this." Trixie said, moving her hooves to the beat as the first chorus started.
"The lights that move sideways, and up and down."
Trixie moved her front hooves from side to side, then pointed them both to the ceiling, then to the floor.
"The beat takes you over and spins you round."
Trixie spun a bit to the left, then to the right, then spun around to the left on her back right hoof, stopping just as she faced Twilight again.
"Our hearts steady beating, the sweat turns to cold."
Trixie placed her right hoof against the left side of her chest, then crossed over it with her left hoof against the right side of her chest.
"We're slaves to the DJ and out of control."
Trixie twitched first left, then right, as if trying to escape from a pair of hoofcuffs, then rolled her hooves down to their original positions.
Twilight tried her best to copy Trixie's dance moves, but couldn't keep up, mainly because she'd never heard this song before. She decided to just watch Trixie as she danced to the next verse.
"I watch her hooves move, her flanks, they sway."
Trixie stomped her back hooves one at a time, then swayed her flanks from side to side.
"Does a mane fling, then starts to say,"
Trixie flipped her head backward, making sure to hold onto her hat with her telekinesis as her mane followed her head's movements, then flung her head forward again.
"'Oh, my gosh, it's my favorite song!'"
Trixie mouthed the words as she danced, her hips swaying again.
"I pull her close and she sings along."
Trixie reached out towards Twilight, who gladly moved closer to allow Trixie to pull her close to herself in a warm embrace.
"We can't slow down, even if we try.
If the record keeps spinning, then so will I.
She likes industrial, and she tastes like a tear.
Tells me 'Don't stop dancing!' and she's pulling me near."
Trixie lead Twilight around in a circle,both of them swaying to the beat as they danced, before Trixie let go of Twilight and begun dancing to the next chorus, Twilight doing a better job of dancing with her since she already knew the moves. As the middle eight started, Trixie pulled Twilight into a warm embrace once again, kissing her deeply through the entire section as they swayed back and forth to the music. As the last choruses started, Trixie broke the kiss and the embrace, and they both danced the way Trixie had taught Twilight again until the song ended.
As another song that Trixie couldn't identify started, Trixie and Twilight walked off the dance floor to give other ponies some room to dance. Trixie took this time to observe the club around her. The floor was in a checkered tile pattern, and there was almost no lighting at all, save at the tables and the bar, and the spotlights that changed color and shape as they drew intricate paths around the dance floor, which was littered with ponies dancing in all different styles. Some were drawing graceful lines through the air in front of them with their front hooves, others were stomping around brutishly and almost throwing themselves heavily into other brutish ponies, though they seemed to be holding back so as not to actually hurt anypony, but most fell somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. More than a few had glowsticks tied to their front hooves, which made interesting patterns as they danced.
Trixie looked towards the DJ booth set up on the stage above the crowd, and saw a unicorn mare with white fur and a blue mane and tail, each with electric blue streaks through them. Her cutie mark was a double eighth note, and she wore purple glasses over her eyes and a large set of headphones. Her head bobbed to the beat, and she had a wide smile on her face. "So that's DJ Pon3?" Trixie muttered to herself.
"Yep!" Dash said, floating next to Trixie, making her jump a bit at the sudden appearance of the cyan pegasus. "Isn't she great? I told you this'd be awesome!"Dash exclaimed, raising her hoof toward Trixie. When Trixie just stared at Dash, she said, "Come on, don't leave me hanging!" Finally understanding what Dash wanted, Trixie bumped her hoof against the pegasus'. "Aw, yeah!" Dash exclaimed.
Author's Note: For those who might not know, the song I linked is actually a cover of this song, which I have only one thing to say about it: "Oh my god, it's my favorite song!"
I actually finished this one relatively quickly, because I pretty much knew exactly where I wanted to go with it, though it took me a bit to get there.
