Sarah's Adventure's in Equestria

by PikachuSkitty


Episode 51: Part 1: Beginning of the End

It's been a few weeks since the cake mystery incident. Skitty and Eevee have been loving it at the home-ship, playing with Carrie, Kaede and the other pets as well. A few days later, Flaffy evolved again into a proud Ampharos. I was so happy for my little pokemon. He was no longer the baby Mareep I raised months ago.

But now's not the time for that. Right now I was running at full speed with my pokemon, Winter, Storm and Moonshine by my side. I flew from a hill and straight through the entrance to Canterlot. My friends came up to me all running at top speed. “Okay we’re all here.” Fluttershy said.

“So everyone got an urgent message from the Princesses?” I asked.

“Yeah, with no explanation at all.” Ren said.

“I hope nothing’s wrong.” Jamie said.

“Less talking and more running to the palace. Race ya” Rainbow said and she sped off, brushing through the palace entrance doors and we all followed. We stopped right before the Princesses, “We got here as fast as we could. What the emergency?!” Twilight cried. The Princesses stepped aside and we saw a familiar male human-hybrid collapsed in Celestia’s throne. “Dad!” I cried.

“Dad?!” Twilight and the Mane 6 exclaimed in shock.

“But ah thought those other two men were your father's?” Applejack asked.

“Yes, but he’s her biological father, Jake. Her mother gave birth to Sarah and gave her to Big D and Douglas to keep her safe.” Ren explained. My biological father, Jake, was sitting in his chair, looking badly injured and really weak. I rushed over to him and touched his bruised cheek. “Dad, wake up.” I cried. My dad faintly opened his eyes, “Sarah.” he groaned in a hoarse voice.

“What the hell happened to him?!” Jack reclaimed.

“We don’t know, he suddenly came to us, looking like this.” Luna explained.

“Dad… what happened?!” I asked, frantically.

“Ugh… darkness… so much.. Darkness.. Ugh.” he groaned.

“Dad!” I cried.

“Is there anything you can do for him, please say there is?” I asked the Princesses frantically, shedding some tears. Celestia wiped my tears, “Don’t worry, we’ll take him to the infirmary and have the best healers care for him.” she promised.

I sniffled. “Thank you.”

That’s when Discord appeared. “Oh hello everyone. Oh my, what ever happen to you Jake?”

“Ugh… darkness… Discord.” Jake groaned.

“Oh dear, well looks like someone will have to take over as Alpha Dragon while you stay here and recuperate. I have so many questions. Who will run the Hidden World while you’re here recuperating? Will it be someone tall, dark, and handsome? Or will it be the Lord of Chaos?” Discord made many hands appear, pointing at him, but the Princess rolled their eyes and Celestia pointed at me. All my friends stared at me while my heart skipped a beat, “Oh sure, go with the obvious choice.”

“Whaaaat?” I squeaked in total and utter shock and horror.

“You want me to be the Alpha Dragon of the Hidden World?!” I exclaimed in shock and horror.

“Ugh… you’re the only one… I know can do this, honey.” My biological father started with a weak smile. “B-B-But I’m not ready to lead anything. Let alone a whole KINGDOM!” I literally started hyperventilating until Rarity came up with a paper bag. “Breathe, darling, breathe.”

“Jake, don’t you think this is a little extreme?” Ren asked with concern.

“Yeah, isn’t it a little too soon?” Jamie added.

“I agree. Newbie didn’t have any training for this, old man.” Jack stated.

“Cough, cough, I know she’s ready…” Jake looked at me,

“Me and my sister couldn’t think of anypony more worthy. Overtime, we've watched you grow. You've faced task after task… trained and befriended dragon after dragon...

“...overcame challenge after challenge…” Luna added. Discord came floating over all of us, saying, Countless adversities, yeah, yeah, yeah, we get it…”

“And you've always prevailed.” Celestia added with a proud smile.

“Thank you, but that doesn't mean that I’m ready to do what he does!” I exclaimed in worry.

“Oh, of course you are.” Jake coughed harshly again, “Donny and Douglas have raised you well, honey. You’ve made wonderful friends and became the strong, brave and truly powerful daughter I always knew you would be.” I started shedding some tears again and I wiped them. “Dad..?”

My dad weakly lifted my chin, “I couldn’t think of anyone else more ready.”

I sniffled and I hugged him and he weakly hugged me back. “I won’t let you down, I promise.” I whispered.

“I know you won’t.” Jake stated.

“So.. will Sarah have to move to the Hidden World now?” Jamie asked concerned. The rest of my friends suddenly looked worried. I didn’t want to leave my friends for who knows how long based on my dad’s recovery. “Actually, We’ve decided that when there’s a problem in the Hidden World, a dragon will come and alert us and we’ll alert the Alpha, which will be Sarah.” Celestia said.

“So how long will my dad be recovering?” I asked.

“By the looks of his injuries, I’d say a few months.”

I grinned and laughed nervously, “A few MONTHS?!”

The rest of my friends groaned. “T-That’s so long?! Shouldn't there be some sort of training program that lasts weeks? No, months? If not years?!”

My biological father grinned weakly at me. “Everything you've gone through over the years has been a training program. You’ve learned so much about in my absence, honey. I know you can do this. You’ll have your friends by your side to help you.”

“Yeah, we’ll help you out with whatever you need.” Kaede stated.

“We got your back.” Jack added.

“Y-You can count on us.” Jamie added.

“We’ll be right here to help.” Ren added.

I grinned at my friends, but I still felt that I wasn’t ready for this step up. I stepped out of the throne room and into the hallway. “Sarah?” a voice came and I saw Spike next to me. “Are you alright?” he asked. Music started playing in the background and I broke out into song.

(Me)

I was prepared to do my best
Thought I could handle any test
For I can do so many tricks
But I wasn't prepared for this

Levitation would have been a breeze
Facts and figures I recite with ease

The square root of five hundred and forty-six is
Twenty-three point three six six six four
Two eight nine one zero nine

(Professor Bill Neigh)
She is correct!

(Me)
I could ace a quiz on friendship's bliss
But I wasn't prepared for this
Will I fail, or will I pass?
I can't be sure...

(Spike)
She can't be sure...

(Me)
My mind is sharp, my skills intact
My heart is pure...

(Spike)
Her heart is pure...

(Me)
Oh, I've taken my share of licks
I've made it through the thin and thick
But no I wasn't

(Spike)
Oh no, she wasn't

(Me)
Oh no, I wasn't

(Spike)
Oh no, she wasn't

(Me)
No I wasn't

(Me and Spike)
Prepared... for this!

After the song, Spike came up to me, “Don’t worry Sarah, you’ll be a great Alpha for the dragons.” I know he meant to cheer me up, but I didn’t quite believe him. Night had fallen and I was alone in one of the Canterlot hallways. I couldn’t help but think about this new adjustment.. No, leader position I was suddenly pushed into. I’ve only been a Princess for a few months now and now I have be the Alpha or Beta (female Alpha) of the dragons. How could I possibly do that?”

“Sarah?” a voice called. I turned around and saw the three Princesses, Ren, Jamie, Jack, Nicole, Rantaro, Kaede, Mason and Carrie. “Is something wrong?” Ren asked.

“It’s just… I don’t think I’m ready to be the Beta of the Hidden World.” I replied.

“Beta?” Kaede said.

“It’s what a female leader of a group is called.” Jamie stated.

“I know I’m good with dragons and have lots of knowledge about them, but… to rule a kingdom filled with them… I… don’t I think I can do it.” I turned around and sadly walked out onto the balcony and starting singing.

(Me)
It isn't that I'm ungrateful
For all the things that I've earned,
For all the journeys I have taken,
All the friendships that I have trained

But I wonder if I’m ready now,
To be the leader dragons need
I don't know how to travel
To a future that I can't see

The other three princesses can onto the balcony along with my friends.

I have my wings, I wear this crown
I'm a princess, this is true
But it's still unclear to me
If I’m ready for this role

I have my doubts and worries
Wanna do the best I can
I wanna be a good example
I want to make my dad proud of me

Princess Celestia placed a hoof on my shoulder.

(Celestia)
Your destiny's uncertain
And that's sometimes hard to take
But it will become much clearer
With every new choice you make

Luna came forth.

(Luna)
Changing is never easy
I understand having fears
I know how hard it is to see
To see if you’ll pass or fail

Cadence came up then.

(Cadence)
But you stand here for a reason
You're gifted and you are strong
That crown is upon your head because
You belong

(All)
Know that your time is coming soon
As the sun rises, so does the moon
As love finds a place in every heart
You are a Alpha; you'll play your part

(Luna)
We understand you have your fears
But you have shown you’re well prepared

(Cadence)
We all know you can,  you’re ready now

(All)
Know that your time is coming soon
As the sun rises, so does the moon
As love finds a place in every heart
You are a Alpha; you'll play your part

(Celestia)
You are a Alpha; you'll play your part

Celestia hugged me. “You’ll be a great leader.” she said. She and the other princesses walked off and my friends came up to me. “Are you okay, suagrcube?” Applejack asked.

I sighed, “No.”

“Come on, maybe some sleep will help you.” Twilight suggested. I only nodded as my friends walked back into the palace so we could go back to Ponyville to get some rest.

Third Person POV

Meanwhile, in the Crystal Empire, black crystals started to form in the city, crystal ponies screamed and rushed inside their homes. One filly fell to the ground and the shadows behind her became a male initially umbrum unicorn. King Sombra.

King Sombra laughed and the filly’s mother and father stepped forth looking upset at the former kings’ return. King Sombra used his magic to place them under a spell that makes them do his every command. Suddenly, a spear almost hit Sombra and he saw four crystal guard charging towards him. He used his magic to make a large crystal platform, knocking the guard away.

He made his helmets that also placed them under his control and put them on the guards heads. Now they are under his control. Inside, Shining Armor rushed into the throne room with two other guards. “The guard says Sombras’ breach the castle.”

“Hurry, Twilight we need you.” Cadence said and she sent the letter. “Do you have Flurry Heart?”

“I-I thought you had her!” Shining exclaimed. They both gasped in horror and rushed to Flurrys’ room to see Sombra, holding her with his magic. “Mama!” Flurry cried. Cadence gasped and lit her horn, but Shining Armor stopped her, fearing for his daughter’s safety.” You won't get away with this!” Cadence said.

“Oh, I already have.” Sombra said. Flurry tried to bite him and Sombra laughed. He placed the Crystal Heart in between two dark crystals.” With the Crystal Heart now in my possession, there is nothing to stop me from ruling the Crystal Empire!”

Cadence, Shining Armor and Flurry were chained by their muzzles and brought before Sombra. “Now kneel before Sombra!” the royal couple had no choice but to bow. Sombra sighed, “Long live the king.” he chuckled evily.

POV Ends

Back in Ponyvile, Twilight was pacing in front of the cutie map and her friends came in. “ Thanks for coming so quickly.” I said.

“Of course.” Rarity said. Discord appeared again, "Sure thing. But if you're gonna be the ruler of Equestria, you may want to work on your penmanship. This looks like it says, "Cadence sent an emergency message. Sombra's back, and he's taking over the Crystal Empire."

“That’s exactly what it says. Whose King Sombra?” I asked.

“He’s a unicorn whose heart is black as night and tried to take over the Crystal Empire, but we stopped him but now it seems he’s returned.” Twilight said.

“How is that bastard even alive?” Jack asked.

“But how is that possible?” Ren asked. “I thought the Crystal Heart had dispelled him!”

“I have no idea! But he's back, and it's up to us to save the Empire and my family!” Twilight said.

“What if he has the Crystal Heart already? How are we gonna stop him?” Spike asked. Twilight looked at the Cutie Map, my element and her cutie mark. “The Elements of Harmony! With those we can defeat anypony!”

“Right! Let’s go guys!” Ren stated. Twilight teleported all of us to the Tree of Harmony and Twilight used her magic to gather the elements and placed them on her friends and herself and then we all went to Crystal Empire.

Sombra was busy feeding on grapes while a few crystal ponies were under his control. He had the royal family trapped in black crystals. Flurry tried to blast him but he used his magic to stop it. “It's cute that you think that will do anything.”

“It might not, but they will!” Cadence pointed to the door and we all came in. “Calvary's’ here!” Pinkie exclaimed My friend charged at Sombra, but he used his dark magic to stop them and lift them into the air. “Guys!”

“How can I be surprised when I'm waiting to show all of you your greatest fear?” Sombra sent his magic to my friends. “You should all surrender! Nothing can defeat your own fears!”

“NO!” Lucario leaped in and punched Sombra in the face, canceling his magic. “Wha? What are you suppose to be?”

“He’s my pokemon.” I said.

“Huh? I don’t remember you.” Sombra stated.

“That’s because I’m new and I won’t let you take this empire. Amphaors, Thunderbolt!” Ampahros leaped into the sky and launched the electric attack at Sombra. Sombra counter ed with his magic and they were evenly match, creating a small explosion. I activated my element and it sent out a magic line to Twilight and the girls. Their eyes glowed white and Ren and the others were released. “What is this?!” Sombra exclaimed.

“Atta girl, Sarah!” Ren cheered.

Spike went over and blasted the black crystals enough for the royal family to break through. Cadence grabbed the Crystal Heart and flew out the window. “NOOO!” Sombra cried. Flurry started to blasting the possessed ponies. “ It's cute that you think that'll do anything.” Shining Armor smirked.

Cadence activated the Crystal Heart and it’s effects dispelled the dark clouds and freed the ponies from Sombras' spell. Sombra growled. “You may have won the battle, but I shall win the war!” I narrowed my eyes and me and Twilight sent a powerful rainbow beam at Sombra making him disappeared.

“Alright girls!” Ren cheered.

“Woah.. they are powerful.” Jamie said.

“Told you.”

“We totally just wiped the castle with that guy!” Rainbow bragged.

“Thanks Twily.” Shining Armor said.

“That was fun!” Pinkie added.

“And easy.” Applejack said.

“As magical battles go, that was a cakewalk.” Rarity stated.

“Of course it was, we’re an awesome team.” Rainbow said. “And we have two awesome leaders too.” Everyone looked at me and Ren. “What?” I asked.

“You and Ren are awesome leaders, newbie.” Jack said.

“And we know, you’ll be a great Alpha until you biological dad, recovers.” Jamie added.

I thought about it and grinned a little, “I’ll try my best to be the Alpha, but I think I’ll be alright. I have you guys, and we have the Elements. And together, we've never failed.”

We all hugged in a loud cheer.

We went back to the Cave of Harmony and placed the Elements back into the tree and mine was placed back into the little crystal flower beside it. “Once again, Equestria is safe.” Twilight said.

“So how should we celebrate?” Applejack asked.

“I vote cakewalk!” Pinkie said. We all turned to leave, but I suddenly sensed something and turned around. “Guys!” I cried and the at the same time the cave started to rumble, “What the-?” Ren said.

“What’s going on?”

“I don’t know.” Twilight said. We turned to the Tree and flower to see black crystal starting to form and a large on came and destroyed the tree and flower! The elements were seen flying and six shattered on the floor. Everyone gasped in horror. That’s when King Sombra appeared once again laughing loudly.
