[Author's Notes: There are three major crossovers in terms of abilities and equipment that
Storm uses on a semi-regular basis; Assassin's Creed, Star Wars (Mostly using force powers from KOTOR 1 & 2 and Force Unleashed), and the occasional Prototype. There may be a very occasional scene that might involve other games and movies, but these are the main three. Anyways, LETS A GO!!]
It was late afternoon during the final stretch of our little tour around town. On our way to Twilight's, we passed by Lyra's house. She stopped us and asked us to wait outside while she went to go grab her bags. We complied and I noticed the rest of the group seemed uneasy, except for Twilight. She was still wearing that sadistic smile from earlier and I could have sworn her eye occasionally twitched.
" *Yawwwwwwwn~* Well good morning Storm. How's your tour going?"
'Just find and dandy Ed. How was your nap?'
"It was great. You were right, I did need that."
'Heh, well that's good. But it's actually in the afternoon, not the morning.'
"Ah you and your specifics can shove it!" He grunted after his statement and probably scratched his imaginary technological crotch before re-connecting fully to me.
"I noticed you had another flashback earlier about your sister. It's good to know you have friends here that helped you snap out of it."
'Speaking of which, aren't you supposed to repress these flashbacks?'
"Most of them, but some have to be relived."
I grumbled at that answered when Lyra walked back out with her saddlebags. Her smiled widened when she saw me and it really unnerved me that she had a similar smile compared to Twilight.
"Okay, I got my supplies! Shall we be heading off towards Twilight's?" Lyra asked to noone in particular while still looking over at me. 'I swear all these ponies are checking me out...'
"Yeah sure... and everypony that sees you tilts their sunglasses to the end of their muzzle and say, 'Dat Ass!'... Or would it be 'Dat Flank'?"
'Do you ever shut up?'
Twilight nodded and off we went towards the library. However as we walked, I noticed some pegasi following us while taking cover behind clouds. However I just shrugged it off and focused on keeping up with the others...
As we arrived to the door of the library, Fluttershy spoke up for the first time after Sweet Apple Acres.
"Oh Twilight, shouldn't we warn Spike about him?" She pointed to me and Twilight nodded before walking in solo. There was still complete silence from the library, and the others weren't willing to break the silence. I decided to start whistling a random song which caught the rest of the group off-guard. They all stared at me with awe that I was making such beautiful music with just my lips. However during the middle of it, the library's door swung open with Twilight and a little green reptile standing in the doorway. The others seemed annoyed that I was interrupted, but didn't voice it.
"Spike, here's the human. Now maybe you'll believe me?" She said with a smirk as she stared down at Spike whose eyes widened at the sight of Storm.
"Wow... he's really tall! And you say he can't speak?"
"Well he can, but refuses too. He spoke some other language earlier today, but of course, I couldn't understand it. I bet it wasn't even a real language!" She got back her irritated stare that was now locked onto my eyes. I simply shrugged it off and waved at Spike.
"Ciao! Quindi è necessario Spike sì?" I asked still using my Italian to confuse them. However Spike's eyes only widened and look at Twilight with a mocking smile.
"Are you sure you don't know what language he's speaking?"
"Yes! Absolutely, I have never heard this language before..."
"Well it's quite obvious what language he's speaking," He raised both his arms to show the simplicity of it before continuing, "Can you not hear it in his accent? He's speaking in Itailian!" Twilight's eyes stared at Spike before face-hoofing herself.
"Of course! Why didn't I see that before?! I think I have an "Itailian to Equestrian" dictionary in the library! We can finally understand him!!!"
'Uh oh... think, think! What languages might they not know... I got it! SPANISH!'
I cleared my throat before speaking in Spanish like I was born from Mexico itself.
"Apuesto a que no puede entender "este" lenguaje." I said with a wide grin. Spike looked at me as if he was trying to decipher what I just said. However he simply shrugged and looked back to Twilight.
"I don't know what he said, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a language here in Equestria..."
Twilight looked at me with fire in her eyes, which just granted her a innocent smile from me. However as he sadistic smile returned, mine faded. 'What is she planning?' I wondered as she started speaking to the rest of the girls.
"Okay girls. It's been a fairly eventful day, and I think that the human here has seen enough. Since we used our only free day off to help him get aquatint with the town, we should all go back home and ready ourselves for work tommorow. Lyra, human, would you like to stay here for the night? I don't mind at all..."
She seemed to be staring at me the entire time, not once taking her eyes off of me. Both me and Lyra nodded before we got ready to go inside with Twilight and Spike. However before I could, the rest of the group decided to use me as the center for their group hug. They really wanted to make this hug last, which I just shrugged off as them trying to be friendly. I didn't mind though, and after I waved them off, I joined Lyra and Twilight in the main room.
I had to admit that this library was pretty cool-looking, whether it was from the tree roots poking out here and there on the far walls, or just the serene ambiance that the library was generating. Twilight was still staring at me with that creepy smile, and soon after Lyra put her saddlebags down, she joined in on the smile.
'Well this certainly isn't creepy...' I thought when Twilight started closer towards me.
"So... are you sure you aren't going to speak in a language we can understand? I have so much to ask you, and Lyra too." I looked at both of them and gave a sad frown to say 'I'm sorry but no' before slowly shaking my head. This didn't seem to faze either of them however, as they got closer and closer to me.
"So what would it take for you to tell us more about yourself and your species? Fluttershy refused to let us ask you about it during the tour..." Lyra asked as she tilted her head. I gave an honest shrug and took another step back as they matched it with one hoof forward.
"But unfortunately for you... Fluttershy can't stop us now..." Wait what.... uh oh.... Before I could react and get out of there, Twilight surrounded me in a faint purple glow as I was forced to one knee. She had that same sadistic smirk... only it was wider....
"Well if you won't tell us willingly... then I guess we'll have to force the information outta you." Lyra said as she opened her saddlebag to reveal medical surgery tools. It only took a second and a half to put two and two together.
They're going to cut me open if I don't talk....
'ED! I need some help here!'
"... I'm working on it Storm. I don't see why you don't just use the Force to break her concentration though..."
'This world's life field is entirely new to me, ergo I can't use the Force fully until I'm connected to it. I can only use basic abilities that won't help me right now...'
"Okay I'm going to patch you through into The Equestrian Magical Perimeter (Just refer to it as the E.M.P. for now) so you can fully access your ties to the Force. But I'll need some time for me to make the connection..."
'Understood. However can I get an anti-Force stimulant injected so I have a chance?'
"Got it. Ready yourself."
It didn't take long for the A.F. (Anti-Force) stimulant to kick in, and soon I was starting to rise back up onto my legs. Twilight wasn't expecting this and started to try and apply more magical pressure, but it wasn't working. I felt anger and rage starting to build up inside of me. 'How dare they try and force me to give info I didn't wish to give...' However, right before I broke free of Twilight's hold, Lyra applied her magic and back to one knee I went.
"Well I'll admit that whatever willpower you just charged up to start releasing yourself from my magic was impressive, you can't stop it when there are two unicorns focusing their magic on you." Twilight said with a regained smirk and she motioned to Lyra to refrain from going to the surgical tools just yet.
"Aww but I want to see what he's made out of on the inside." Lyra pouted as she sat down on her haunches and steadied her magic flow.
"You'll have your chance. I wish to see if I can't pry out the information using a mind-invasion spell that Princess Celestia sent to me when I told her about him. She wanted me to report anything I could find out about him through any means." 'Wait what....' "I do feel bad for the other girls for having to lie and pretend to like him when I told them about it at Fluttershy's cottage." What..... "Especially Fluttershy... I basically told her to flirt with him after his breakdown just to help lower his guard so I could set this up." WHAT!?!?!?!
I was beyond mad now. I was seething with rage to the point where I almost didn't hear Ed talking again.
"Okay connection is fully established, you can counter their magi-... Oh no, STORM SNAP OUT OF IT!!! DO NOT KILL. I REPEAT, DO NOT KILL THEM."
' Oh no...I'm going to kill Princess Celestia instead...'
Before Ed could try and talk me out of it, I had fully stood up now and was feeling my new connection to the world around me. Twilight and Lyra were horrified now that there magic was doing nothing to stop me now. They both backed away, tears in there face as they feared me taking their lives. But instead I started to speak... In English.
"Congratulations Miss Sparkle and Miss Lyra," Both ponies look at me with surprise that now I was speaking and they slowly started growing a genuine smile that they got me to speak 'Equestrian', "Because of the information you let slip out, I'm off to go kill Princess Celestia." What would have been an ecstatic grin on both their faces turned into one of complete horror.
"I'll deal with you and the others when I return from Canterlot. Until then I strongly suggest you warn your Princess of my arrival. I'll be looking forward to murdering her entire Royal Guard." I had obtained a crooked, twisted grin as I turned on my heels and started for the door.
Twilight desperately was trying to suppress me with her magic, while Lyra was attempting to talk me out of it. I refused to listen as I walked outside towards the mostly-quiet village. It would have been completely quiet if it wasn't for the two mares begging me to not go and kill their ruler.
"Oh it's far too late now. I sincerely hope you send that letter. It'll give me a better challenge as I bring Canterlot to it's knees."
"Please wait human! Let me expla-" Lyra was cut off however by me starting to emanate a deep growl. She stopped talking and slowly back away so she was next to Twilight. I turned around and consulted them one last time.
"Congratulations you two. If you send the letter, tell her she has 'til dawn before I come to end her... You too should feel accomplished now! Because now...now Equestria will die."
"Shift- Prototype Mode"
As I felt the familiar virus re-coursing through my veins, I looked towards Canterlot and with a small bend of my legs, I flung myself towards the path to Canterlot. 'And now I make my way towards the heart that houses the tyrant...' I thought as I sprinted, climbed, and jumped towards Canterlot.
Twilight and Lyra merely stood there, watching the now-enraged human making his way to Canterlot through movement that shouldn't be possible for a wingless creature to do. Lyra looked over at Twilight who had tears running down her face as she finally exploded into a lavender colored heap of tears. As Lyra tried to comfort her, she heard Twilight trying to speak to her.
"I'm so s-sorry... I d-didn't know he-he'd respond like t-that... I'm so sorry..." Lyra simply held her. There truly was nothing else she could do as she held her new friend and stared into the direction of where the human left.
What have we done...? Lyra thought as she just assisted with sending a rage-induced alien from another world to kill anything in their country's capital that got in its way, just to kill their ruler. With a sobbing Twilight Sparkle in tow, she went inside to write a letter to a certain ruler of the sun.
Princess Celestia was calmly sitting on her balcony alongside her sister, Princess Luna. They hadn't really said anything since Luna came out to join her sister, but decided now was a good of a time as any to speak.
"'Tia? Are you sure it was a good idea to make Ms. Sparkle go through all that just to get information?"
"Oh what's the worst that can happen? I'll admit that when I made up and planted that whole 'Earthling' document in the Royal Archives to shut up some of my more insane subjects, that I'd never expect anyone to bother with it. However considering how the last letter Twilight sent me telling me she found an alien in the Everfree that closely matched the document, well I had to get some information out of it."
"But forcing to get the information... isn't that a bit too extreme?" Luna asked as she turned her head to look at Celestia's face still locked onto the horizon. The moon had been up for a few hours now, and Celestia just wished to relax and stare at the creation her sister made. She just chuckled and continued to speak.
"Well Twilight did mention it was being stubborn about giving out information, so of course I had to get the information, one way or another."
"But making Twilight think that all his friends didn't like him? Wasn't that-"
"What does it matter? It's not like its a threat or anything...."
A letter that appeared infront of Celestia stopped her mid-sentence. "Ah, I bet this must be the report Twilight said she send when she got a good deal of information out of him..." She went silent as she read the report, however, as it wasn't as she thought it was going to be:
Dear Princess Celestia,
We had restrained and questioned the human as you asked. However as I was readying the memory-scan spell, I decided to start using the insults that you told me to use to try and trigger interaction with him. That was a success, but now he's going to Canterlot. To kill you. He told me before he marched off to Canterlot to, "assemble your Royal Guard. He'll enjoy murdering them all if they get in his way to kill your ruler." I suggest that you ready yourself for his arrival, as he certainly is more than capable of doing so. He told me he'll not strike 'til dawn, so you have until then. Me and the rest of the Elements of Harmony await your instructions.
Your faithful Student,
"Oh no...." Celestia said as the scroll dropped to the cobblestone floor of the balcony with an audible 'thud'.
"What is it 'Tia?" Luna asked. She had never seen her sister so afraid before.
Author's Notes: DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.
OH yeah, I'm going in that direction. Ready yourselves for a future and lengthy chapter with plenty of fighting. Until then, I'm off to get some shut-eye! Chapter 7 probably won't appear 'til Thursday but -shrugs- Who knows?
