"I can't believe that this is happening." Rainbow Dash stepped forward to give the vow.
"I still can't believe that there are magical Ponies that can talk." The bailiff responded in his normal cheery way.
"You're weird." Was all that Dash could think of saying.
Dash took the vow and sat down in the witness seat.
He lawyer-for-hire swaggered over to her and leaned on the stand.
Dash briefly wondered if she could trade Twilight for Luna.
"So Dashie." Twilight slurred. "You're in court for possession of your title of Element of Loyalty."
"Uh, yeah." Dash answered, still confused about why her lawyer had called her to the stand.
"And you think it's all just ridiculous, don't you?"
"Uh, duh?" Dash responded confusedly. "You said it yourself; it's all a big misunderstanding."
"A big misunderstanding' she says." Twilight smiled drunkenly, turning away from RD.
Dash repeated. "Yeah, a big misunderstan-"
Twilight suddenly turned back around, her face filled with rage.
"WHERE WERE YOU ON THE NIGHT OF THE 15th?!" She screamed at her client.
"Wh-what?!" Rainbow stammered, shocked by the sudden outburst from her lawyer.
"ANSWER THE QUESTION!" She continued screaming at her client before turning towards Trixie. "Your honor?"
Trixie looked back and forth at the drunken, angry unicorn and her scared client. Trixie leaned down towards Dash.
"Answer her." She whispered. "Before she kills us all."
"But it's the fourteenth." Dash whispered back.
Twilight wasn't even listening to them anymore and was dreamily shifting on her hooves. She had forgotten her previous outburst.
"OBJECTION!" She screamed, pointing at Rainbow Dash.
"You're objecting yourself." Trixie said matter-of-factly. "You should sit down, Twilight."
Twilight leaned in close to Rainbow Dash, their faces almost touching. "No further questions your honor."
With that, she turned around and marched back to her seat, passing Luna and Spike.
"You're up." She said nonchalantly on the way back to her seat.
"Darn she's good." Luna muttered, watching Twilight sit back down.
"Good?!" Spike jumped on his chair. "She's drunk!"
"I wish I was drunk."
She walked over to the stand anyways; a look of determination new on her face.
"Okay, you can do this." She told herself as she approached the Pegasus.
"A misunderstanding? Well explain these!" She dramatically slammed a stack of pictures down onto the table.
Dash inspected them as Luna looked on. "As you can see, all of the evidence I need is on these pictures."
"These are nice." Dash admitted. "But what do pictures of Spike dressing up like me have to do with me?"
Luna stared down in despair at the pictures she slammed onto the desk; they were the pictures of Spike that had been taken for the case.
"Hey Spike!" Dash called. "How did you change your eye color?"
"Contacts." He called back.
"By the way Luna..." Dash reached into her mane and pulled out another stack of pictures that she slammed onto the desk dramatically.
Luna inspected the photos; they were simple pictures of Rainbow Dash performing actions.
"I don't understand, what are these?"
She smiled. "These are pictures of me showcasing my Element of Loyalty and being a general hero."
The Princesses jaw dropped. "How did you get these photos?"
"I took them from Twilight. I knew that she would be too drunk to use it."
Twilight drunkenly cheered from her seat. "That's showing her Applejack!"
Dash rolled her eyes. "It's Rainbow Dash!"
Twilight stared at Dash from across the room, trying to think through her clouded mind.
"Where's my drink?" She asked, searching around the table having completely forgotten what she had said.
Rainbow Dash crossed her arms and smirked. "I'm sure your honor will see that I am more loyal."
Trixie levitated the collection of pictures up to her and inspected them one by one, each picture she looked at lowered her jaw more and more.
"I-Trixie could do any of these things." She stammered. "In fact; Trixie can do all of them, at once."
Luna facehoofed. "No more questions please." She groaned.
Luna went back to her seat once again and Dash was allowed to sit down as well.
"Okay." Trixie sat tall in her chair, overlooking all of the other Ponies. "Are there any more questions before I announce who will earn the title?"
"Yes!" Spike shouted, jumping onto the table. "Yes, I have a question!"
He pointed a claw at the judge. "How come I was never given a chance to speak?!"
"Oh no." Luna, having realised her mistake, facehoofed again.
"That is a good question." Trixie admitted. She pointed at the bailiff. "You there, Doctor Bailiff, fetch me my doink-doink!"
He did as he was told and got her gavel for her.
"Don't mention it and it's just the Doctor, okay?"
"Whatever." She shrugged and turned back to Spike. "You see dragon, apparantly the thing is..."
With the force of her magic, Trixie launched her gavel across the room and hit Spike clean in the head, knocking him off the table.
"Nopony gives a flying feather what you think!"
"Pwned." Luna chuckled under her breath, not escaping the ears of Spike who glared at his lawyer. "Sorry."
"Okay, with no other interruptions. The holder of the Element of Loyalty will be..."
