“Trixie, Ma’am. The intruders are almost here. What should we do?”
“Well IM heading back to my ship. I don’t know about you... Go luck with the intruders”
“Wait! You can’t leave me here with them! They’ll kill us all!”
“This is YOUR ship. Not mine. Your not my responsibility”
“Please Ma’am. Have mercy!”
“Alright girls, we made it to the bridge. Ready? On three. Three, two, one...”
We moved in through the doors to the bridge and aimed our weapons. No pony in sight.
“Where is everypony?” Applejack asked in confusion.
“Maybe they went to a party!” Pinkie yelled in cheer as she began to bounce around the bridge.
“They must have abandoned ship” I answered. “It’s not importent anyway. We’re here for the controls, not the ponies”
“Right. I’ll see about those weapons for you courage” said Twilight.
“Alright Twilight...” I then looked at the marines sharply. “...secure the area!”
“You got it sir!”
“Alright! One down. One to go” Twilight informed.
“Are you sure? I didn’t feel anything”
“I’m sure Courage. Look for yourself...” She pointed her hoof at the Holo screen.
“Okay, I believe you. Deal with the second”
“Second is down and-”
Before she could finish the ship shook violently and most of us fell to the floor.
“Fuck! What just happened?!?”
Twilight put her hooves on the computer panel and pulled herself up. She looked at the screen and started interfacing with it again.
“It’s Trixie! Her Battleship is bombing us from orbit! She’s bombing the whole of New York by the looks of things”
We all looked out the bridge’s main window. Massive slugs came raining from the sky, crashing down on New York and creating massive explosions. We were hit again.
“Ship systems failing! We need to get out of here!” Twilight cried.
I turned on my ear piece and started yelling into it, “Alright! Everyone to the transport! We gotta go!!”
We were running through the ships corridors, stumbling and getting thrown around as Trixie continued to bomb the ship. Explosions around us as we ran back to the hanger. Another explosion above our heads as we ran down the corridor. Debris came crashing down on Rarity’s hind leg. She gave an outcry of pain and I stopped to look.
“Ah! Help!” she cried.
I looked back at everyone else as the ran, unaware of what just happened.
I quickly moved over to Rarity and tried to lift the massive support beam off her leg. Her horn glew as she tried to lift it with her levitation powers. Spike joined in on trying to lift it.
“Why aren't you with Twilight?!?” I asked.
“I’m not leaving my love here to die!” He answered proudly.
“It’s too heavy!” I complained.
Suddenly a green glow mixed with Rarity's and two more pony soldiers helped us lift the beam off with their hooves. The beam began to rise and we pushed it to the side. I looked to the three pony soldiers
“You’re welcome. Now lets go!” yelled the green unicorn.
We continued to run to the hanger. The explosions had now intensified and this ship was not going to last a minute longer. We ran down the last corridor before the hanger, explosions all around, rattling our ear drums and dazing our sight. We manged to get to the hanger but the transport had left.
“...Liam you son of a bitch” I cursed under my breath.
The hanger roof began to collapse and we also felt the ship beginning to fall to the ground.
“The gravity centrifuge must have just failed!” The green pony shouted informatively. “...Quick! This way!”
We followed the green pony through to another hanger. We boarded one of the enemy transports and the green pony prepared it to launch. The explosions were now completely covering the ship.
“We have to go! Now!” I yelled in complete panic.
We took off and flew out the hanger door. A huge explosion soon followed and the entire ship was destroyed by one final blow from Trixie. That was a close one.
I looked out at New York city as we flew away from it. It was just a huge pile of rubble now.
“The resistance, the carrier, our new hope and safe haven: Gone. All of that was for nothing”
I sat down on the floor, hanging my legs out the door and dropped my head in despair. Rarity soon approached me and put a hoof on my lap.
“It wasn’t all for nothing. You united the world against Discord AND you took out a few of his ships. Not to mention our new found friends...” She looked thankfully at the two earth ponies. I nodded at her agreeingly. I got up and moved to the cock pit.
“Listen, thanks for helping us back there. I’m grateful and everything but I have to know... why did you help us?”
“You were in need of help so I helped” replied the green pony.
“...but we’re your enemy”
“What do you mean?” I asked in confusion.
“I joined Trixie because I was treated like an outcast. I was frowned upon much like she was. Same with most of us. We wanted to become separate from Equestria. But I didn’t join to do this...” He pointed a hoof out the window towards the giant pile of rubble that was once New York. “...I just wanted a place to belong, a community to relate to. Not to kill and destroy. Trixie has gone way too far with the whole ‘Independence’ thing. I must help you stop her”
“So you’ll help us? That is good. Can you drop us by the nearest UN base, outpost or what ever”
“Sure thing. My Navi-com tells me there should be one about eight minutes out”
“Good! Get us there. Maybe we can re-group with at least a few soldiers”
We approached the UN outpost the “Navi-com” had led us too. It was small and run down, not many marines. We landed in the large open area in the middle. Opening the doors we were met with the ends of many assault rifles.
“Woah! We’re not the enemy! You can put those weapons down!”
The marines ignored my suggestion.
“Put them down marines! Courage is on our side! Have you all forgotten his speech already?!?”
A marine approached me. He looked like the man in charge judging by his Sargents hat. The other marines put down their weapons.
“Welcome Courage! It is an honour to have you here!”
“Thank you.... Sargent is it?”
“That's right! Sargent Welbon at your service. What can we do for ya?”
“I need to find a way on board Trixie’s ship in orbit but our transport is damaged”
“Well I can’t help you with that. We haven’t got any ships here”
“Yes. But maybe you can help us obtain one” I said with a notion of logic, pointing at him repetitively.
Liam and the rest soon showed up in their transport. Apparently they had followed us here. One lone escape ship flying towards a UN outpost was obviously not a ship flown by Trixie’s “goons” as Liam put it.
“Alright guys. The Sargent gave me Intel on a ship not far from here. It is a large transport that was used to transport troops to take over the near by town. We are going to assault the landing zone and take the ship. We will use the ship to get on board Trixie’s ship in orbit. Unfortunately the landing zone is surrounded by a force field fencing system. Some one will need to take down the power. It’s simple. Me, Violet and Pete will take every marine and tank here and directly assault the ship. The rest of you need to move into the town’s mines and take out the fences power source that is hidden some where in the mine. We are not even sure if the power source is in the mine but it is definitely somewhere under the mountain. We’ll just have to be lucky. Let’s get to it!”
The ponies and the rest of my team moved to the mine to find the power source. Me, Violet and Pete stayed with the marines to prep for the assault. We had two Abrams tanks for this assault but one was badly damaged. The sky was now filled with dark clouds. It looked like it was going to storm. It was also evening. This storm plus the lack of sun light was definitely going to benefit our approach to the landing zone. They should hopefully not see us coming right away.
“Alright! Lets get going marines! Liam’s team will be done before long and I want to be there when those shields go down!”
We were about eight hundred metres from the landing zone. A large marshy bog was the only thing between us and the landing zone now. It had started to rain but only lightly. We all continued to approach the landing zone quietly, the tanks moving extra slow to try and remain as quiet as possible. I wanted to get as close as possible before shooting. The closer we were the better the chances of hitting.
Swoosh! A rocket flew past my head and destroyed an Abrams.
“Return fire!” Shouted the Sargent.
“Shit! That was the fully functional tank as well!” Pete complained.
We all returned fire and continued our advance, the second Abrams firing it’s secondary machine gun (because that was all it could do in it’s condition). Another rocket flew past and destroyed the last Abrams we had. Bullet fire then came from the tree line to the right of us. Me and Violet took cover by a broken brick wall and fired back at the soldiers to our right. All of the enemies were Ponies. No dragon warriors in sight, thankfully. After some intensive fighting, and the loss of most of our marines, we managed to take out all the hostiles to the right. However resistance was growing around the ship.
“Keep pushing!” I yelled as I advanced with the last of our marines.
We were getting close now and the force shield fence had just gone down. I was suddenly hit in the face by a splatter of blood as Violet went down.
Violet dropped to the floor and I immediately moved to help her. She was hit by a large caliber sniper bullet, right in the chest.
“Shit Medic! Where’s fluttershy when you need her!!”
Some marines had moved to us to cover us out in the open. Bullets were still coming in from everywhere.
“Shit. I don’t think I’m gonna make it. It’s...” She coughed up a load of blood. “It’s pretty bad”
“Just hold on! Hold on! Fluttershy will be here in a few minutes!”
“It’s too late. I won’t last that long...”
“No! Don’t give up on me now!” I felt a tear roll down my face. “I... I never got to...”
“...to tell me how you felt?”
“...Yes. I... I’ve always had feelings for you. I should have told you so-”
“Shh....” She put her finger to my lips. “...I know. I feel the same way...”
“Of course. Your a great guy Courage. Look what you’ve accomplished. You’ve done so much for me. For everyone. How could I not like you?” She was grinning at me but tears began to flow from her eyes. She then started coughing again.
“C’mon Violet! Hold on please!”
“I... I can’t. I’m not going to make it Courage...”
“Please! I need you!” Tears were now flowing through my eyes like a fountain. “I can’t do this without you!”
“You can! I believe in you! You have to stop Discord. For Everyone, For Earth, for Equestria.... For me”
She grabbed the sides of my arms and shook me. “You have too... Do it... for me!”
“No! You WILL do it! You can beat him! I KNOW you can beat him...” she then began to cough again. Almost choking to death this time.
“My time’s up... I can’t hold on any longer...”
“Violet wait! Please... Don’t go...”
She then pulled me close and kissed me. I became filled with shock and adrenaline as our lips touched. I could feel the blood pouring from the side of her mouth. I didn’t let it bother me. We kissed for about ten seconds but she then retreated and spoke to me softly.
“I’m sorry Courage... this is good bye...” More tears ran down her face. “I love you”
Those words stunned me for a moment. She then shut her eyes and ceased to breath.
“Violet?!? Violet!! Violet No!! Please! Wake up!! Medic!! Medic!!” I looked around to seek help but all I could see was my marines around me getting gunned down one by one. The ship had taken off and Pete was already dead.
I stood up and started yelling into the air. “No!! Discord!! You bastard! You fucking Bastard!! I’ll get you for this!!”
A purple line of smoke moved from the ground towards the ship. All I got back from it was an evil taunting laugh. I then fell to my knees in tears, Rain falling down on me as the storm started. I began to break down. I fell on my side next to Violet’s lifeless body and wrapped my arm around her. The marines around me slowly getting wiped out from all directions. Was this the end?
