"BATS, GIANT BATS IN MY ROOM" Screamed Celestia.
Discord was racing down the hall as fast as he could move. Giant bats, now this he had to see and maybe help Celestia out... maybe. As Discord made his way down the hall a loud crashing sound began to emanate from Celestia's chamber at the end of the hall. By the time Discord arrived at the door he was no longer sure if he wanted to go inside
"Moment of truth." He muttered under his breath as he opened the door.
The sight that greeted Discord would never leave his mind; it appeared Celestia had gained the upper hoof on the giant bats or bat pony hybrid. She held one of them in the air with her magic slamming it into the Walls and Ceiling at random intervals as the second creature hid behind a table it had apparently flipped over cowering in fear. Discord knew what he had to do, or wanted to do. Discord took a running leap at the creature.
"Take this you hideous monstrosity" He shouted as he came crashing down on the creature, or he would have if it hadn't been for a familiar blue glow that held him in the air. He looked around the room for the source of the magic noticing that Celestia was no longer holding the other in the air but instead it was also being held by the blue layer of magic.
"Really Discord? My guards are hideous monstrosities? Have you not looked in the mirror lately?" spoke the voice of Luna.
Both Celestia and Discord turned to the door and sure enough there stood Luna her horn glowing as it held the two terrified and battered Guards above their attackers.
Discord was the first to speak "That hurts Luna it truly hurt" he said trying to hide a chuckle
Celestia put a hoof on Discords shoulder "Don't worry, you’re beautiful on the inside." she said patting him on the shoulder.
"Princess Luna" came the weak voice of the guard "Could you please put me down?"
Luna slowly lowered the guard to the ground and released her magical hold on him. The guard had just enough energy left to thank the Princess of the night before promptly passing out. Luna looked at her sister with a face of confusion mixed with a lot of confusion.
"Celly, first you tell me I should take more interest in my staff and guards, then you attack them when I do" Luna said giving Celestia a disapproving look.
Celestia looked at the unconscious guard then to the one still behind the table. "I'm sorry, how was I supposed to know these were your guards? First they come swooping down on my balcony, and then they came at me."
The guard arose from his position behind the table "I'm sorry you're highness we didn't mean to startle you. We were attempting to deliver a letter to you and I guess we forgot to remove our nightmare night costume" he said still trying to regain his composure.
Celestia looked at the guard quite impressed if that truly was their nightmare night costume then they really went all out even if it required magic. However it was the letter that caught Celestia attention the most.
"So who is this letter from?" Asked Celestia
The guard placed the rolled up scroll on the table in front of Celestia. "It's from your Student, Twilight Sparkle she said it was a friendship report"
Celestia was confused, why didn't Twilight just have Spike send it like normal but before Celestia could ask guard he began to speak again.
"Miss Sparkle asked me to deliver the letter for her. She told us that she usually had her assistant send it using his fire breath but he had a stomach ache" The guard let out a little chuckle "The little guy ate to much candy, at least he learned that life lesson now."
Luna's eyes began to shift "Did you say Friendship report?"
The guard nodded towards the Lunar Princess as Celestia unrolled the Scroll, Discord leaning over her shoulder in an attempt to read it.
Luna was sweating bullets she was about to be busted. "Imtiredbacktobedgoodnight" She blurted out as she darted out the doors.
Luna had escaped; she made it to her room and had sealed all the entry points. She wouldn't have to deal with anything till the morning. As she returned to her bed she was surrounded by a golden glow.
"Aw Crap" she let out with a sigh as she vanished from her room.
Luna landed with a thump back in Celestia's room.
"So dear sister, you had a hard time with friendship?" Celestia said staring down at her younger sister.
"Oh whatever do you mean sister?" Luna said with a chuckle as she picked herself off the floor.
Celestia gave her sister a look that sent a shiver down both Luna and Discords spine
"I think you know exactly what I mean Luna. This letter from my student paints a very different picture as to what occurred on your little visit to Ponyville."
Luna let out another nervous chuckle "I don't know what you mean Celly, When we arrived in Ponyville we were met by a cheering crowd of ponies and then spent the rest of the evening having fun and celebrating"
Celestia continued to eye her sister "Really Luna? Because Twilight's report says you arrived in a manner the instilled terror in all the Ponyville folk and from what your guard told me you ordered them to act as scary as possible, hell Luna, Twilight even said you arrived in a cloak made from live bats. Did you go there just to cause panic?"
"Me? Purposely try to cause panic and terror? I would never" Luna said with a grin "In fact causing panic is my least favorite thing to do."
Celestia grinned "Yes I know you just hate to cause any form of terror. Could you explain to me this part of the letter? Twilight says I should try and help you with your "Volume" Problem. Do you know what she meant by that?"
Luna was twiddling her hooves "I may or may not have been using the Voice."
Celestia was surprised she didn't think Luna would have remembered the Voice let alone use it in her prank. Celestia couldn't help but feel somewhat proud, her sister was learning so well.
Discord raised his talon "What is the voice?"
Celestia gave a terrifying grin "The voice, or as it was known as before, The Royal Canterlot Voice was something me and Luna came up with after we lost you. We had no way of keeping the Regal class on their hooves so we came up with a way to grab their attention, we created the voice."
It was Discords turn to grin "Show me" he said standing up
Celestia gave a concerned look "Are you sure, it’s a bit loud and a bit strong."
"Hit me" Discord said as he prepared himself.
Celestia stood up and moved herself into position in front of Discord as he prepared himself. He looked up at Celestia and nodded his head.
"BLAMO" Celestia let out at an ear splitting volume
The Castle shook and Discord did his best to fight the force of the voice. However Celestia had created it and Discord was unable to hold his ground. The sheer power of the voice hurled Discord over the balcony and into the night sky.
Celestia and Luna ran to the balcony in an attempt to see where the Draconequus might have landed.
Luna looked turned to her sister "Do you think he'll be okay?"
Celestia nodded "I'm sure he'll be fine he's just as durable as us. Don't you remember when we threw him into the sun?"
Luna let out a chuckle "Yeah I remember, why we did it again?"
"No clue" Celestia said manner-of-factly. "And don't think I've forgotten what we were talking about."
"How about we forget what happened tonight and we all go to bed?" Luna said praying that her sister would go for it.
Celestia laughed at her sister’s feeble attempt to escape "Nice try Luna, how about you tell me everything that happened. From what your guard has told me and from Twilights letter everything turned out fine for everypony involved"
Luna was surprised "Really the letter didn't say anything about the burning barn?"
Celestia stared at her sister somewhat stunned "You burned down a barn? Really Luna? Really?"
Only Luna's blue coat hid the embarrassment that covered her face
"It was an accident some of us may have had a little bit too much to drink and they really wanted to see more lightning. Don't worry though I fixed everything before I left."
Celestia was completely stunned, not only had Luna burned down a barn she also got "Slightly" drunk.
"Okay, now you really have to tell me what happened and if you want to get out of this unpunished, I’m going to need some candy."
Luna's eyes began to shift around the room "Oh dear sister what do you mean candy? Don't you think if I had candy I would not have shared it with you?"
Celestia chuckled "Don't even try that, Twilights letter goes into extreme detail as to how you both turned a statue of Nightmare moon into a sacrificial candy alter."
Luna sighed when she had returned to the castle she thought she had the perfect plan. She covered all her tracks or so she thought, she stashed the candy in her room behind layers of magic. But now Celestia knew not just about her evening but also about her candy haul.
"Fine, Celly you wait here I'll go get the candy" Luna said trying to suppress her grin as she opened the door.
Celestia stood up and ran over to her sister "I'll go with you. Wouldn’t want you to get lonely, or escape" she knew that's exactly what Luna had planned
Several minutes later both Celestia and Luna were sitting on Celestia's bed . Luna told Celestia everything about how she arrived and instilled terror in the hearts of ponies and how she decided to test Celestia's student. She finished by bragging how she was favorite Princess in the eyes of a pony named Pip.
The two Alicorns spent the rest of the evening talking and laughing both of Luna's guards recovered fully from their injuries and received a large pay raise. Celestia also learned that her sister may be learning a little too much from her. But in the end everypony had a great Nightmare Night and Neither Luna or Celestia could wait, next year they would work as a team and everypony would fear them.
*Meanwhile in Ponyville*
Twilight had just finished cleaning up the library after her eventful evening she had tucked spike into his bed, the poor little dragon had eaten far too much candy and was paying the price. It was then that Twilight noticed the loud whistling sound. Searching around she couldn't tell where it was coming from. But she would soon find out. Moments later Discord came crashing through her roof landing on the floor unconscious.
Twilight looked up at the large hole in her roof then back to the unconscious Draconequus on the floor. Twilight dropped to her knees.
"CELESTIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" She screamed to the heavens.
