Those Who Fight For Harmony
Rainbow dash and the Doppelganger stared at each other for a long time. The wind was blowing a bit harder at this time; both of the mare’s mains were flowing beautifully in the air. It almost seemed like their mains were flowing in unison with each other. Rainbow Dash started to become very board with all the staring.
“We going to fight, or are we just going to stand here all day?”
“You make the first move dear.”
“Alright, you asked for it you big fat faker! I’m going to wipe that stupid grin right off your face!”
Rainbow Dash flew at the doppelganger vigorously, but the doppelganger swiftly jumped right over Rainbow Dash and landed safely right back on the ground. Rainbow Dash had to stop and just try to collect what happened.
This doesn’t make any sense that attack would have knocked out any other pony. So how did this faker dodge my attack?
“Getting annoyed Dash?” The doppelganger mocked.
“You know you could just give me your element and I’ll make your death quick and painless.”
Rainbow Dash became infuriated with the mare. Once again she dashed at the doppelganger with a vigorous speed. She kept swinging her hooves at the doppelganger, hoping to land a hit, but it was no good the doppelganger kept dodging her attacks. The doppelganger eventually found an opening and smacked Rainbow with a powerful blow to the face. She plunged a few feet back on the ground, but quickly got up on her hooves preparing for her next attack. Fluttershy was watching the entire fight, and starting to get worried. She had never seen anypony dodge an attack by Rainbow Dash. She was starting to worry that Rainbow couldn’t handle this by herself, but Fluttershy was too frightened to do anything. She was almost in tears, feeling useless not being able to help her friend.
Rainbow Dash was getting angrier and angrier that she hasn’t put a single hit on this faker. The more it dodged her attacks, the more infuriated she became. She kept trying to hit the doppelganger with all her might but it would always counter attack. The doppelganger was starting to become bored.
“Come on; is this really all you got? I thought you were supposed to be the strongest out of your friends. Then again they weren’t that strong anyways, that’s why I didn’t want to waste my time killing them. Well…. At least not at the moment.”
“Shut the hell up!” Rainbow snapped. Okay Rainbow, calm down… don’t let this idiot play mind games with you. This guy has successfully dodged every single one of my attacks, I don’t know how he is so fast. But there is one thing he didn’t plan on, my sonic rainboom!
Rainbow Dash had a big smile on her face. The doppelganger was intrigued by this mood swing, it was wondering why she went from being completely frustrated to all cool and composed.
“So you got something up your sleeve do yah?” It asked.
“yuup! And trust me; you won’t be dodging this attack!”
“Well alrighty then Dashy. Show me what you got!”
With one big dash, she leaped into the air and began flying upward as fast as she could. The doppelganger was wondering what in the world she could possibly be doing. When Rainbow reached a high enough altitude she began to plummet down towards the doppelganger. Fluttershy knew instantly what Rainbow was going to do and flew away to a safe place to hide. The doppelganger was starting to worry, was this new attack so powerful that even the other Pegasus had to fly away into safety? Rainbow gained more and more speed as she descended back to the ground. She was becoming so fast that even the doppelganger could feel the pressure of her coming back down. He was puzzled at what kind of attack this could be. Rainbow was finally ready to unleash her ultimate attack, she finally gained enough speed and it was time to show the fake mare what it was made of.
“You ready for this you fake bastard? Here I come!”
Rainbow made her final dive down, slamming into the ground right next to the mare and a gigantic rainbow colored sonic boom appeared covering almost a 20 mile radius. Rainbow Dash was trying to catch her breath.
“Wooo! Now that’s how it’s done!”
She began to dance in victory, but she stopped to notice something strange standing in front of her. It was a creature like no other; she had no idea what this strange being could possibly be.
The creature was standing on two legs alone, not four. And its body was slim and stood up straight. It also had two arms, but of course Rainbow Dash didn’t know what those where, because ponies don’t have arms. And its head and visage was shaped differently than ponies. It also didn’t have a main, but a full head of smooth black hair. It was also wearing a fancy suit and black dress pants.
“What’s wrong pony? Never seen a human before?”
Rainbow Dash was dumbfounded at the creature standing in front of her.
“What the heck is a human?”
“This form that I stand before you in is what a human is. At least the male variety. I told you we doppelgangers travel through many worlds didn’t I? And the Human world just so happened to be one of those places I visited.”
Rainbow Dash was still perplexed by one thing, why didn’t her sonic rainboom work? Even if the doppelganger was one of these strange human things the rainboom still should have damaged him severely.
“You’re wondering why your attack didn’t work aren’t you?” The doppelganger gave off a slight laugh under his breath. Suddenly a big round force field surrounded the so called human.
“Protection magic from your world of course. Now that attack was very strong don’t get me wrong, and it would have damaged me quite horribly…. If I wasn’t in my human form that is.”
“What does that got to do with anything? So what if your some weird… human thing now, my attack should have finished you! And what was the point in changing forms anyways? That protection magic is from our world, it would have worked the same if you were still a mare.”
“Actually you’re very wrong about that Dashy; you see humans aren’t weak creatures. They are greedy, conniving, selfish, and cowardly, but weak is defiantly not one of their attributes. Humans have an unlimited potential that no other race from any other world has! And when a human unlocks that potential inside of them, they amplify it and are virtually unstoppable. So sense I am a human now, and I have already discovered my unlimited potential, and I can use the powers I copied from this world and amplify them tenfold!”
Rainbow Dash became frightened by this realization. If all what the doppelganger said was true, then none of her attacks, not even the sonic rainboom, can do anything to it. And she began to consider the possibility that the other 2 doppelgangers that this one talked about have human forms as well. If they do, that means her friends are in grave danger. Rainbow began to feel very uneasy by this thought; she gulped, thinking of how much trouble her friends were in. Rainbow wanted to go and help her friends but she couldn’t do anything to this one doppelganger, so how was she supposed to help her friends?
“What’s wrong little pony?” The doppelganger asked ironically. He felt really cocky; he knew the pony couldn’t do anything to hurt him anymore. There was nothing that could stand in his way anymore; at least that’s what he felt. He let out a loud laughter, he felt so accomplished.
“Now Dashy, hows about giving me that element?” Rainbow Dash was shaking, she couldn’t move. It was one of the only times in her life where she truly felt fear. But it wasn’t like Rainbow Dash to give up so easily, even though she was frightened she still stood her ground, she would continue fighting, for everyone.
“You know you’re pretty brave for a mere pony, I like you.”
The doppelganger gave off a creepy smile, he was so giddy. He truly loved his human form, he felt so invincible with it. Rainbow still stood bravely, anticipating his next attack. The doppelganger seemed to disappear, Rainbow was very confused, and she was looking around to where he could have gone. But then she heard a voice behind her, a voice that sent a shiver down her spine.
“Behind you Dashy!” The Doppelganger was right behind her! As soon as Rainbow turned around he kicked her right in the stomach sending her flying back a few feet! Rainbow was huffing for air; the Doppelganger kicked all the breath out of her. But he didn’t give her time to rest; he dashed at her and kept pummeling her over and over again. He kept laughing and laughing as he beat her.
“You know Dashy? I quite enjoy beating the living hell out of you! Hahahhaaha! I never knew beating magical creatures was such fun!”
Rainbow Dash was beaten and worn out, she couldn’t move a single inch anymore. The doppelganger smiled in triumph. He placed his hand over Rainbow, and an aura excreted from his palm. He was copying her element. The doppelganger had finally obtained all 6 elements of harmony. The doppelganger grew a very dark pair of wings. The wings were the blackest of black, if one were to gaze upon them; it would almost seem like looking into a void itself. In a way they were beautiful and yet… disturbing.
“ha… haha… I did it… I FINALLY DID IT. I obtained the six elements of harmony! Hahahahahaha! Now nothing can stop me, not even God himself! HAHAHAHAHA"
Equestria…. And many other worlds are in danger now. What of the other warriors who are battling off the other doppelgangers?
The battle has only begun
