Fields of the West (Music Story)🎵 · 2:17am Nov 28th, 2020

I’m trying something new. You’ll see what I mean. I’ll rewrite the song soon. Also, sorry if it’s a bit sloppy.

Anyway, onto the song.

Original Song: Fields of Verdun - Sabaton


*The scene begins with Flutterwings crouched over, staring at the ground as the sounds of a trench raid fill the background. She soon puts her hooves in her face for a while, before removing her hooves, her face now stained with blood that wasn’t there before. She gives a shocked and scared face as she stares off, traumatized. Then...*

“ARGHHHH!”

Instrumental

*The scene then cuts to before the trench raid, and we see the changelings in their trench. Bezier and Oculus are moving towards their respective posts, crossbows in hoof*

As the battle soon began that day
Heard a hundred miles away
A thousand crossbows fired
And the arrows pierced the land.
And the cannons fired all day long
Yet morale’s what hold them strong
Heavy changeling defenses
Now the gauntlet‘s been thrown and the struggle‘s begun

*The scene then cuts to ponies’ trench. There, a few cannons are lined up and Melody finds a perch in a tree, aiming down the sights of her scoped crossbow*

Shellshocked into madness
33 days trapped in the Hornets Nest

*The cannons fire, destroying a bunker next to Bezier*

Fields of the West!
*Bezier, Oculus, and a few other changelings duck into cover*
And the fighting has begun
They cannot run, family and friends
Die one by one, trapped in the mud
*Melody fires her crossbow, killing a changeling beside Oculus*
Their time has come (Their time has come)
And the suffering has begun
*A second bunker to the left of Bezier begins firing its automatic crossbows*
They cannot run, family and friends
Fall one by one, Fields of the West.

Though a thousand arrows have scarred the land
No one has an upper hoof.
*Oculus raises to fire at Melody’s position. The tree bark shrapnel from the impact of Oculus’ arrow makes Melody flinch*
From the ground above their bodies
The changelings make their stand
*Melody finds Oculus. As he raises up to fire, Melody sends an arrow into his head*
As the trenches slowly fill with rocks
And they quickly start to clog.
Guards charge them at every corner
*The scene cuts to a five ponies charging towards the changeling trench. Four are killed by Flutterwings and Cricket, whilst the fifth makes it to the trench, only to be bludgeoned to death by Venom with a large rock*
All hope seems to be lost, as they kill with the rocks!

Shellshocked into madness
*Bezier grabs a crossbow and looks for Melody’s sniper scope glint*
33 days trapped in the Hornets Nest
Fields of the West!
*Bezier fires the crossbow, sending the arrow straight through Melody’s scope and straight into her eye, killing her. The pegasus then falls out of the tree*
And the fighting has begun
They cannot run, family and friends
*A whistle blows and the ponies charge from their trench*
Die one by one, trapped in the mud
Their time has come (Their time has come)
And the suffering has begun
They cannot run, family and friends
Fall one by one, Fields of the West.

Instrumental

*The scene then shows a pony soldier clad in full body armor, as well as a gasmask. They’re horn soon bursts into flames. The scene then turns to Venom, Flutters, and Cricket. The three split up, Flutters heading to the left side of the trench, Cricket to the right, and Venom staying in position*

Fields of the rock farms turned to red fields from the fight.
*Flutters turns to Venom, before yelling a warning at him*
They can’t go further, Foresight said, "They must not pass!"
*Venom doesn’t pick up the warning, and before he knows it, the flamer’s spell engulfs the changeling’s upper half in fire*
The spirit of Luna and the madness of the Queen
*Flutters runs towards her brother, but a pony jumps into the the trench, hitting her in the head with a shovel*
So go ahead,
face the lead,
join the dead,
Though you die,
where you lie,
never asking why.
*Flutters doesn’t get a chance to fight back as the soldier continues to beat her down*

Instrumental

*Soon, Cricket charges towards the pony, tackling him. The two get into a scuffle, the pony clearly winning. Flutters grabs an Cricket’s knife, which he dropped. She then turns to see, much to her horror, the pony burying an axe into Cricket’s chest. She yells and charges towards the two, slashing the pony’s throat. As the pony dies, Flutters crouches over dying brother, trying to stop the bleeding, but in vain. Cricket dies of his wound. Flutters puts her hooves in her face, covering her face in blood*

Shellshocked into madness
*The flamer spots her as she lets out her scream*
33 days trapped in the Hornets Nest
Fields of the West!
*Flutters then watches in horror as she herself is engulfed by the flamer’s fire spell*
And the fighting has begun
They cannot run, family and friends
*Bez sees Flutters die and, filled with rage, runs over, dynamite in hoof*
Die one by one, trapped in the mud
Their time has come (Their time has come)
And the suffering has begun
They cannot run, family and friends
*A pony charges Bezier, pinning her against the trench wall and sticking his bayonet into her stomach*
Fall one by one, Fields of the West.

Instrumental

*Bezier stares into the pony’s eyes, before dying as the instrumental ends*

Story:
The Battle of Western Equestria was a 33 day long conflict resulting in many soldiers being trapped in the rock fields. A few days into the battle, heavy rain set in, turning the rock fields into a mud pit. Many soldiers drowned in the pits, and most bodies were never recovered. Another thing was that when most weapons like crossbows were useless, soldiers turned to the rocks clogging up their trenches as weapons, choosing to bludgeon their enemies to death with heavy rocks.
And with the use of flame spells and pesticides on the ponies side, the battle was lost and the changelings had to pull out and rethink their movement.

Mhm. I’m killing one person; I’m killing everyone.

5406286
5406289
Ye.

5406287
I had to be fair. If I kill everyone except one, I don’t want the others thinking I’m picking favorites.

I’m not being serious anyway

“I can’t believe I agreed to act out in this war skit only to die afterwards...”

“I can’t believe I had to kill someone in that skit...”

“I can’t believe I ended up being the last central character alive in the end...”

“I can’t believe the ponies won...”

Ugh, fucking assholes. *walks off* I only wanted to do something for you guys.

They stare at the ground, feeling guilty

5406326
Good.

Let this lesson sink in.

Look before you leap, and think before you sneak

I’m sorry, Hero, I didn’t mean to make you feel bad—
