My Little Pony: Son of the Night

Chapter 3

One day, 30 days before Luna's child was due to be born, it was decided that a census should be taken, that every pony was to return to the place of their birth to be registered.

"So what's all this for?" Twilight inquired Luna when she came to ask the reason for this unique census recording.

"This is for the Canterlot population. Now that we are increasing the number with a new foal coming." Luna answered.

Just then Aiden came up wondering what was the excitement, "What's going on here?"

"Hello there Aiden. We're just doing a census for the Canterlot population." Twilight told him.


"It's a form or record for the population of ponies."

Aiden understood Twilight's information easily, Starlight not knowing Aiden and meeting for the first time decided to ask about him due to what he was.

"So where did you come from young colt?"


"That's a far away land from here." Luna noted.

"That's amazing. And wow another alicorn! Are you like the prince of Tembelon?" Starlight asked curiously.

"Yeah. How did you guess?"

"Because you're an alicorn of course."

Aiden blushed at Starlight's remark on her guess of what he was and from where he came.

"I don't think I've introduced myself yet. I'm Starlight Glimmer. Twilight's student. Of course you may know her and Luna."

"Yes, and Luna's going to be a mother?"

"That is correct."

"Cool!!!" The young prince replied excitedly.

"I'll be due in another month."

"I'd like to see your foal once it's born."

"I'm sure you will." Luna said smiling, seeing perhaps the chance her foal and Aiden would be close friends.

15 days later, Lancelot felt because he was born in the town close to Canterlot, he felt he should go there to visit his parents, and he decided to bring Luna with him.

"It's nice of you to bring me to your parents, Dear."

"Well, I'd like for us to get together since they will be grand-parents soon."

Luna smiled at the idea, and the joy her In-laws must've felt at the approaching birth of their grandson.

The two left walking together to the cottage Lancelot grew up in. It was 3 pm when they reached the cottage.

"So this is where you lived in?" Luna asked curiously, embarrassed a little she in all this time had not come here.

"It is." Lancelot replied smiling at the concept of a slightly humble origin.

Lancelot knocked on the door and it was answered by Jessica.

"Lancelot! I missed you so much!" She stated embracing her son and future father to her family's newcomer.

"I missed you too Mom."

Jessica then turns to Luna for motherly affection, "And there's our Mother-to-be."

"Hello again, Jessica." Luna greeted warmly, Lancelot and Luna walked in with Jessica and were greeted by Lionel.

"Son!" He greeted embracing Lancelot firmly.

"Hey Dad." He replied nuzzling him.

"This is quite the reunion." Luna chuckled softly her heart warmed by familial love.

So the days went by while Lancelot showed Luna around the cottage. He showed her his toys from when he was a colt(including his wooden sword), his family pictures and showed her the animals that they had on the property.

Then one evening while Luna was with Lancelot in the stable, she felt some pain in her body.

Luna feelt the baby kick sharply!

"Lancelot! It's... it's time...!" Luna said panting.

"Oh no!!! Stay calm Luna, I'll get Mom. " He said as he rushed to get Jessica returning with her several seconds later.

Luna breathed heavily trying to ease the pain of oncoming labor.

Jessica carrying pain relief herbs approached Luna, of course having been a mother she expertly assisted Luna,

"Keep breathing Luna, I'll help you."

Luna breathed heavily as labor hit hard and would be hours long.

Jessica gave Luna the pain relief herbs all the while, "Get ready when you feel the urge to push."

Luna breathed heavily then started to feel the urge.

"Now, Push!!!" Jessica ordered

Luna pushes hard after many times of doing so and with one cry, the foal soon came out.

Luna panted from giving birth and at last heared her foal crying.

The foal was a colt with a blue coat. His mane was a mixture of dark and light blue.

"Is he alright?" Luna asked nervously.

"See for yourself." Jessica said as she gave Luna her foal.

Luna naturally as most loving mothers do was overwhelmed with joy to the point of tears looking at the life she gave.

"Lancelot, come see our new son. Isn't he beautiful?" Luna asked tears streaming as she smiled proudly.

Lancelot looked to the foal and replied with an equally tearful smile of pride, "He's perfect." Then nuzzled his wife.

"This is what Amalthea has sent us." Luna stated petting him tenderly.

"What shall you two name him?" Jessica asked.

"I was thinking... Jason." Luna replied.

Lancelot nodded and said, "A perfect name."

Unknown to them, a new star was shining in the sky.... 

In a field, Twilight, Aiden, Spike, Shining Armor, Cadence, Flurry Heart, Starlight Glimmer, Sunburst and Twilight's friends were sitting among sheep when Twilight saw the strange new star in the sky.

Twilight: Guys look! A new star!

Starlight: What do you think it is?

Twilight: Let's go find out

They followed the light which lead to Luna and her new born foal. 1:26-3:41

"Hey everypony." Lancelot greeted.

"We followed the star which lead us here." Twilight informed.

"You've arrived at the perfect moment." Lancelot stated as he let everypony come near.

"Would you like to see him Flurry?" Luna asked.

"Yes Auntie." Flurry then sat next to her.

Jason opened his eyes which were bright blue and looked up at Flurry, she smiled seeing his attention was on her.

"Hi Jason." She greeted warm and friendly.

Jason giggled reaching a hoof up to her nose.

"He's so adorable." Flurry remarked.

Aiden held Jason next and was fascinated with the foal, like he had a new brother.

Just then, a group of shepherds came in to the stable.

"Greetings Shepherds." Luna spoke.

"Is the new prince here?" The first Shephard asked.

"Over here." She showed the new born colt to him.

"Just as the angel had told us." the second Shepherd stated.

Luna smiled proudly all the while as her son was given revered attention.

Some days later, there came three magi from the east who followed the star searching for the new born prince.

"Welcome to you all as well."

The three Magi each brought gifts for the baby prince one after the other.

"Gold is for a prince, the riches of his glory." The first one Melchior informed.

"Frankincense is for prayer, a fragrant offering to Amalthea." The second named Caspar added.

"Myrrh is for sorrow and the day of death, the door way in to life." Balthazar finished.

"Thank you all." Luna said accepting each gift.

Just then, a young colt with a brown coat and black mane an tail walked in to the stable. He had a drum with a rope which he carried around with him.

"And who might you be?" Luna inquired.

"Aaron." He replied.

"Care to play your drum, Aaron?" Luna asked.

Aaron looks at his drum and then Jason and answered smiling, "I'd be honored." He stated as he started playing his drum,
Luna enjoyed the sound from the young colt. Little Drummer Boy

And as Aaron looked at the babe, he thought it was the most beautiful site he had ever seen.

"Such beautiful music." Luna complimented.

"Your gift for Prince Jason, Aaron, is perhaps the one favored above all." Caspar observed.

Luna agreed with him as Aaron humbly bowed.

Yes, it seems everypony was happy about the arrival of Jason. When Lancelot and Luna returned to Canterlot with Jason, they went to the temple to give offerings to Amalthea and dedicate Jason. There was an elder stallion named Simeon, Amalthea told him that he would not die until he had seen the Star Prince.

Luna and Lancelot met the old stallion. Simeon took the colt in his arms and praised Amalthea.

"Sovereign Lady, now let your servant die in peace, as you have promised. I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all. He is a light to reveal Amalthea to the nations, and he is the glory of your ponies."

"He is special." Luna said.

Simeon blesses Jason's parents and turns towards Luna.

"This child is destined to be Equestria's greatest champion, he will be a joy to many. He has been sent as a sign from Amalthea, he will strike fear into those who threaten Equestria, but many will oppose him. He will cause the fall and rising of many in Equestria, and to be a sign that will be spoken against. As a result, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own sole as well. May Amalthea guild your child as he grows."

Lancelot and Luna then left with Jason soon after.

But there was one who was not pleased about the new prince....A stallion named Herod, one of grand dukes in Equestria. Herod knew that the Star Prince would become a great ruler when grown up, and that would mean the fall of his position as a duke. Herod would not let that happen, he set up a plan to kill Jason.

But, Gabriel appeared to Lancelot in a vision.

Gabriel in a vision spoke urgently, "Lancelot, get up. Duke Herod is searching for Jason attempting to destroy him. You must take Jason and his mother to Dodge Junction."

Lancelot woke up and rushed to Luna who was nurturing Jason, "Luna!"

"What is it Lancelot?"

"We need to leave Canterlot, Jason's life is in danger!"

Luna gasps in fear for her son's life and quickly made her escape.

Lancelot and Luna took Jason and fled. They stayed in Dodge Junction until Gabriel told Lancelot that Herod was dead. They then returned to Canterlot, and Jason grew strong in spirit, and the grace of Amalthea was upon him.

The End.
