Luminous Skies: Element of Courage

by Luminous Skies


Meeting the others

“Wow, Luminous this is your house?!” Fluttershy asks in awe.

Luminous Skies decided to show Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash his house. And needless to say they were impressed.

“Bro! How did you make this?!” Rainbow Dash asks him.

“Uh, with my hooves and wings?” Luminous asks as if it was an obvious question.

“Wait. Wings?”

“Yeah.”

Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy looked confused. “How do you use your wings?” Fluttershy asks.

“Oh! You mean like this?” Luminous goes over to the piano in the room and plays a few notes with his wings. The others gasp. “Wow!”

“I don’t see what the big whoop is...”

“Well you see, nopony’s wings are that controlled to be able to do that. So when we see you do it...” Fluttershy explains.

“It looks like, insanely cool.” Luminous answers, the other two pegasi nod.

“A’ight, I coulda sworn that all pegasus could do that.”

“Well, yeah but not to the extent of playing a frickin’ piano!” Rainbow Dash exclaims.

“So I’m guessing that my wings are pretty awesome, correct?” Luminous smirks.

“Well, not as awesome as mine of course.” Rainbow Dash quickly says. She then spots a giant black rectangle mounted on a wall. “Anyways, what’s that?” She points at it causing the other two pegasi to look at it.

“Oh”, Luminous says. “That’s a TV.”

“Umm...what’s a ‘TV’?” Fluttershy asks.

“Well, you know how unicorns can make projections with their horns, right?”

Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy nod.

“Same concept, but instead of a horn,” Luminous pulls out a remote. “We use this.”

“What’s that?!” Rainbow Dash half-yells in curiosity and excitement.

“It’s called a remote. You press these buttons here to turn on and change whatever you watch on the TV. You can watch something funny, something sad, something downright creepy or...reality shows.” Luminous says the last one with a shiver.

“What’s so bad about reality shows?” Fluttershy asks.

“You don’t wanna know. Anyway, allow me to turn it on for ya.” Luminous, Fluttershy, and Rainbow Dash all take a seat on the couch as Luminous presses the on button. As the TV begins to load, Luminous does a full body twitch.

“Are you Okay?” Fluttershy asks in concern.

“I feel a disturbance in the force.” Luminous pales as he realizes what’s about to happen. “Get behind the couch.”

“What?”

“I said get behind the couch!” Luminous says in worry.

“Care to explain why?” Rainbow Dash says with a deadpan look.

“It’s for your own safety, now GET BEHIND THE CO-“ It was too late. The TV turned on and the three were blasted back behind the couch due to the eardrum-splitting sound coming from the TV.

HI, BILLY MAYS HERE!!

“AAAHH!! CHANGE THE CHANNEL!” Rainbow Dash screams.

“On it!” Luminous presses a button on the remote and changes the channel to something worse.

I JUST SAWED THIS BOAT IN HALF!!

The force of the sound was enough for the couch to get blasted back into Luminous’s face and cause him to drop the remote. “Luminous!” Fluttershy screams.

Luminous gets up with a groan. “I’m Okay, but I lost the remote! Wait there it is.” He turns to find Rainbow Dash holding it in her hooves. “Well, what are you waiting for?! Turn it off!”

“I’M TRYING!” She frantically starts pressing random buttons, and then out of frustration she slams the remote on the ground, breaking it. “Oops...” She says with a sheepish smile.

“SERIOUSLY?!” Luminous yells at Rainbow Dash.

She tries to defend herself. “H-hey, that remote was all complicated...and stuff.”

“SO YOU’RE SOLUTION WAS TO BREAK IT??”

“W-well...I-I...”

“Oh, damn it all. Just take Fluttershy into the other room. She looks like she’s about go into shock.”

“Wait! I-I can still help, though!”

“Just do it. Things are about to get ugly.” Luminous says with a serious face.

“I can handle ugly!”

“Can you handle stuff getting blown to bits?”

“You bet I can!” Rainbow says in excitement.

“Well, Fluttershy can’t, so get her in the kitchen.” He says with a smug grin.

Rainbow sighs in defeat as she grabs Fluttershy and takes her to the other room. Not after peeking to see what will happen.

“Now that that’s over with...” Luminous pulls out a short double-barreled shotgun. He peeks his head over the couch and aims it at the TV that is still blaring. He fires and the TV is blown to bits along with the sound. “WOW!”

He turns to see a rainbow tail quickly move into the kitchen. Luminous shakes his head and walks in to see a fully calmed down Fluttershy. He gives her a smile, and she smiles back. Luminous notices they’re in the kitchen and decides to make something for them.

“Well, as long as we’re in the Kitchen at the time, y’all want me to make you guys something.”

Fluttershy starts to protest but Luminous quickly cuts her off with a smile. “No please, I insist! Y’all are my guests so I should treat you as such.” Pulls out two chairs from the table for them to sit in. He goes to the stove and turns it on. But before he gets out the ingredients for a hay-burger, he looks at Rainbow Dash, who is still looking pretty awestruck because of what happened in the other room. With a sigh, Luminous snaps his feathers(fingers) to get her attention.

“Huh? Whazzit?” She snaps out of her daze and looks at him.

Luminous gives her a stern gaze. “Don’t touch anything. Got it?”

Rainbow Dash looks offended. “Wha-but why not??” She asks in disbelief

“Must I really remind you of what happened in the other room?”

“Oh yeah, sorry about that.” She says looking at the floor with a frown.

“It’s fine. Besides, I can always pull out another one.” Luminous says and pulls out a remote that looked the exact same as the last one out of his tail, before putting it back in.

“Okay, I have so many questions.”

“Well, ask away.” Luminous says and turns back to his cooking.

“Okay. First off, how the hell are you so fast?!”

“I’m gonna answer that question with another question. Why are YOU?” Luminous says with a raised eyebrow.

“Cause I’m awesome, of course!” Rainbow says with a smirk. Then realizes what he’s getting at. “Ooohhh, I get it.”

“Yep, next question.” Luminous realizes that the food is ready and puts two hay-burgers in front of the two mares as they thank him.

“How are you pulling all kinds of things from your tail?!” Rainbow says, taking a bite out of her hay-burger.

Luminous chuckles with a smirk. “Oh Pinkie Pie~”

Pinkie suddenly jumps out of a cabinet. “HIIII!”

Rainbow and Fluttershy look at her in disbelief, but simply shake their heads with a sigh knowing not to question her.

Luminous and Pinkie wrap an arm around each other and stare at the two pegasi with impossibly wide smiles. “See the comparison?” Luminous says.

Before they can say anything, Luminous turns to Pinkie. “You thinking what I’m thinking?”

“If I am then we are completely insane!”

“Damn straight!” Both of them pull out shirts, then they put them on and pull the collar up until only their faces are exposed. They both suddenly swing their hands up and speak in unison.

“We are the Great Cornholio! We need T.P for our bungholes!” They begin to twitch, muttering incoherently. All while trying not to laugh.

Fluttershy starts to become concerned. “Um, are you guys okay?”

“Are you threatening us?!”

Before Fluttershy could respond, Luminous and Pinkie couldn’t hold it anymore and started howling with laughter. Luminous tries to grab hold of Pinkie and the table to keep himself from falling to the floor, but to no avail as Pinkie immediately dropped as well. Soon Luminous was rolling on the floor while Pinkie was slamming it with her hoof, both laughing uncontrollably.

Rainbow looks at him in shock and disbelief. “Right now it seems like you’re telling me that you’re like the male version of Pinkie Pie.”

“Well, in some sort of way, yes.”

Rainbow face-hoofs herself. It’s official! Nothing makes sense anymore!

Nothing ever does when you’re hanging out with us!

But that’s what makes it so fun!

Right you are, Pinks!

Rainbow’s eyes widen. Did you guys just read my mind?!

Pinkie and Luminous look at her, then at each other with mischievous grins. They seem to be talking to her, but their mouths aren’t moving.

Mayyyybe~

Welp, looks like the cat’s out of the bag.

She has seen too much.

We must dispose of the evidence, immediately.

They both look at Rainbow with malicious grins.

Rainbow screams and stares at Luminous and Pinkie in pure shock and fear. “Are you okay, Rainbow?” Fluttershy asks.

Luminous and Pinkie share a laugh. “You shoulda seen the look on your face!” Pinkie says between laughs.

Priceleeeess~” Luminous says in a singsong voice.

Rainbow looks at both of them in disbelief, before just accepting the fact that it’s them being...well, them.

“Ya know what? I’m not even gonna question it.”

“Good answer. Anyways, I have a question for you now.“ Luminous and Pinkie look at each other and begin to smirk. “If you were to use something to fly instead of your wings, what would it be?” Luminous asks.

Happy to change the subject, Rainbow thinks of something, and gets an idea. “Well, imagine I have a huge hammer, right?”

“Right!” Pinkie says.

“Well I would swing it really fast and it would give me the ability to fly.”

“So you rode the hammer?” Luminous says with a snicker.

Rainbow begins to blush. “W-what? No! I didn’t ride the hammer!”

“The hammer rode you on your back?” Pinkie asks with a giggle.

Rainbow blushes harder. “N-no! I would swing it really fast and it would pull me off into the sky.”

“Oh my god, the hammer pulled you off?!” Luminous exclaims. At this point the duo are trying their hardest not to laugh.

Rainbow’s face turned beet red. “NO! I meant like if you’re far away, I could swing the hammer really fast and using the force of the hammer I could come towards you!”

“Sooo, the hammer DOES makes you cum?” Luminous says, and then the floodgates break loose. Luminous and Pinkie are both rolling all over the place, splitting their sides.

Rainbow, with a still red face, grumbled and goes back to eating with Fluttershy. You’re lucky you're cute, Luminous. Or else I would have kicked your ass by now.

“Uhhhh...what just happened?” Fluttershy asks in confusion, which only made the two laugh even harder.

“This is too funny! I have to get the others!” Pinkie says and reaches into the cabinet, and pulls out...Yep, you guessed it.

Applejack?! Rarity?!

With a still dizzy Applejack and Rarity, “Darn it, Pinkie. You got to warn a pony when you pull off a stunt like that.” Applejack says with a groan.

“Hehe, sorry! But you got to hear this new joke me and Luminous just made!” Pinkie says.

“Pardon me for asking,” Rarity says. “But who is this ‘Luminous’ you speak of.”

Luminous walks from behind Pinkie Pie and waves with a smile. “I’m Luminous Skies, nice to meet you both.”

“Why hello there,” Rarity says with a smile. “I am R-“

“Oh I know who you are, Rarity.” Luminous walks towards her.

“You do?”

“Of course!” Luminous gets on one knee. “Who hasn’t heard of one of the- if not most- beautiful mare in all of Equestria?” He says, kissing the back of her hoof which causes Rarity to blush with a giggle.

“Oh my, such a gentlestallion.” She says with a smile.

“I aim to please.” Luminous walks towards Applejack, who tips her Stetson with a smile.

“Howdy! Ah’m-“

“Applejack,” Luminous says with a smile. “Owner of Sweet Apple Acres, home of the most delicious apples in the land!” He puts his hoof out, which she happily shakes.

“Ah had no idea Ah was so well known!” She says with a shocked smile.

“You’d be surprised at how fast word gets around.” Luminous says simply.

“Aaaanyways,” Pinkie interposes and gets in Luminous’s face. “Can we tell them the joke? Can we can we can we?!” She says, hopping in place.

Luminous chuckles. “Ok, ok. I’ll be Rainbow, you be me.”

“Okie Dokie Lokie!” Pinkie, fixes her hair to look like Luminous’s, and Luminous fixes his to look like Rainbow’s. Meanwhile Rainbow puts her head in her hooves with a groan, while Fluttershy looks on to see if she’ll get the joke this time.

Luminous and Pinkie Pie reenact the entire scene. And when they were finished, Applejack was laughing up a storm, Rarity was trying and failing to stifle her giggles with her hoof, Rainbow Dash sunk to the floor in embarrassment, and Fluttershy still had the same confused look.

“Aw man! Ah wish Ah was there ta’ see that!” Applejack says between laughs.

“Okay, I have to admit. That was quite humorous.” Rarity says between giggles.

Rainbow was on the floor, but not out of laughter. “Somepony kill me now.” She says with a groan.

After shrugging off her confusion, Fluttershy speaks up. “Well, now that that’s over with, what was it you wanted to show us, Luminous?”

Luminous is about to answer, until he gets an idea. He begins to wear a huge smile as he bounces I’m place, muttering something. Pinkie hears this and matches his smile while muttering the same thing.

“Uhh, are you guys alright?” Applejack asks in confusion.

Party Party Party Party Party...

Applejack catches on and her eyes widen. “Uh oh.”

Meanwhile Luminous and Pinkie are practically yelling it at this point until they jump thirty feet in the air and scream, ”PARTY!!”

“Huh so he’s just as crazy as Pinkie.” Applejack says with wide eyes. Rarity nods with also wide eyes. Both of them gulp knowing that they now have to deal with two energy-filled, reality-defying, party-throwing ponies.

“And I know JUST where to throw it!” Luminous exclaims. “To the basement!”

The other ponies besides Pinkie Pie shrug not having anything else better to do, they all follow Luminous while Pinkie bounces alongside him.


“What is this thing we’re standin’ in?”

“Well, Applejack,” Luminous answers. “This is called an elevator.”

“What’s an elevator?” Rainbow asks.

“It’s a box that can send us to a certain floor of a building with the press of a button. Basically for anyone who hates stairs.”

“Well then, sign me up for one of these things!” Rainbow says with a grin.

“That could be arranged.” Luminous says with a smirk.

Then others and especially Rainbow are taken aback. “Really?”

“Yeah, why not? Heck, I saved Fluttershy here’s life back in the Everfree Forest, who’s to say I won’t do anything like that for you guys?”

Applejack, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie stare at Luminous in shock. “Wait just a second! You’re meanin’ ta tell me that it was you who fought off those Timberwolves?!”

Luminous shrugs with a chuckle. “Guilty.”

“WOW!” Pinkie says in awe.

“I know, right?! I couldn’t believe it either!” Rainbow Dash agrees. Then looks at Luminous again with a smile. He sure is awesome.

“But, how ever did you do it?” Rarity asks.

Luminous reiterates the story for them, leaving out the part about him singing and carrying Fluttershy home to save her modesty. Pinkie Pie ‘ooooohs’, Rarity ‘aaaaahs’, Applejack doesn’t buy it.

“Hold on, how did you get there so fast? The Everfree Forest stretches for miles.” Applejack asks suspiciously.

“Oh, I have super-speed.” Luminous answers simply.

Applejack tilts her head to the side. “Riiiiiiight.”

Rainbow vouches for him. “No really! He’s crazy fast! Even faster than me.” she mutters the last part, hoping no one hears her. Unfortunately, Applejack does.

“What?! Faster than YOU?!” Applejack shouts in shock and disbelief.

Luminous on the other hand is puffing his chest out with a smirk.

Rainbow, finding no point to cover it up now, nods with a grumble. “Yeah, but I’m gonna find out how. I’m not falling for the whole “because I’m awesome” gimmick. There is only one pony who can get away with that and that’s ME!”

“We’ll see.” Luminous says with a smirk.

There ain’t no way I’m gonna admit that he’s awesome out loud!

“Back to the question at hoof,” Rarity says, then looks up to Luminous with a shocked smile. “Did you really mean that you would save us if we we’re in danger?”

The others look at Luminous in the same way, who gives them all an assuring nod.

Rainbow looks at Luminous with a small blush. Wow, he’d sacrifice his LIFE for me? Talk about selfless!

“Of course, anything for my friends. And any friend of Fluttershy is a friend of mine in my book.” Luminous says with a smile, which turns hopeful. “We are friends, right?

“Well...sure why not?” Applejack says with a smile.

“Wait. Really?”

The others voice their agreement.

Luminous was surprised that they wanted to be fiends with him just like that. But then realized that here in Equestria, friendship is practically the main religion.

Wow! I’ve just made three new friends! *squee*

“Thanks guys, that means a lot.”

“Oh, don’t mention it, darling,” Rarity says, then she looks around. “Where is this thing taking us anyway?”

“I literally just said I’d in the last sectio-to the basement.” Luminous says, muttering the first part.

“Wait a minute,” Rarity’s face contorts in disgust.. “You don’t happen to mean one of those dirty, unsanitary, rat-infested basements, do you?” Rarity asks with a shiver.

Luminous shakes his head. “Nope, I mean MY basement.” With that, the doors of the elevator open.

“Oh my...oh my...GOODNESS!!” Pinkie practically screams in shock and excitement.

“W-What in tarnation?!”

Fluttershy lets out a high-pitched squeal with her mouth wide open.

“Awesome...” Rainbow sighs in awe.

“You were saying, Rarity?” Luminous says with a smirk.

“This is not a basement, this...this...I don’t know what this is!”


“It’s my basement.” Luminous says with a innocent shrug and a grin.

The six leave the elevator, five of which are gasping and sighing in awe at the edifice of a basement.

After a while of looking around Luminous wanted to know how they thought about it. “So, what do you think?”

“Um...i-it’s really big, but it is very nice.”

“This place is so awesome!!”

“It’s simply marvelous, darling!”

“Ah’d be lyin’ if Ah said I’m not amazed!”

“EEEEEEE!! I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS PARTY!”

“Well then we better start setting things up, eh Pinks? Cue the music!”

https://m.

The six ponies hear a faint music. Everypony besides Pinkie and Luminous look around in confusion.

“Where’s that noise coming from?” Rarity asks.

Rainbow hears a fraction of what the guy in the music is saying and tilts her head in confusion. “‘Boss boys?’ What does that even mean? What’s goin on?”

“Ah think the question we should be askin’ Is what’s going on with those two.” Applejack points her hoof at Luminous and Pinkie, who are bouncing to the music (which is now getting louder with every passing second) and mouthing what the singer is saying, all while their smiles are growing wider and wider.

The other four begin to listen closer to the music and realize what’s about to happen, and the green stallion and the pink mare are now bouncing faster. They all figure out that the beat drop is coming and Fluttershy utters two words, which all of the sane ponies in the room were thinking at once.

“O-oh no...”

Pinkie and Luminous jump to the ceiling of the room and scream one word in unison.

”BANGARANG!”

With the four ponies on the ground looking at Pinkie and Luminous in the air with shocked and fearful looks, next thing they know the two in the air are zipping all over the place setting up streamers, games, food, etc.

When they were finished, the song began to fade out, and the two were just standing in the middle of the room, admiring their work.

“How??” The others all ask at once.

Pinkie and Luminous simply look at them and giggle with wide smiles.

“I swear, sometimes you act like a teenager, Pinkie.” Rarity says, shaking her head. She then turns towards Luminous. “With all due respect, you’re no exception.”

Luminous shrugs, “Well, I am only nineteen years old.”

“Wait, what?!” Rainbow says in surprise.

“What’s wrong with being nineteen?”

“Nothing, but you’re parents just let you live alone like this? Lucky!” Rainbow says in envy.

Luminous immediately had flashbacks of his old life and almost immediately, tears began to shed from his eyes. Everyone walked over to him obviously concerned and worried. “What’s wrong, Luminous?” Fluttershy asks, fearing the worst.

Rainbow was the most concerned of all. “Was it something I said?” Rainbow says, felling a pang of guilt.

“Well, yes. But not in the sense that you’re thinking of. I never had parents. Or a family or friends at all in the matter.” Luminous says looking down. Everyone in the room gasps in shock and sadness for Luminous.

Rarity and Fluttershy start-to tear up. “D-darling, that’s horrible!” Rarity says with a sniffle.

Pinkie’s hair deflates as she starts to tear up as well. “I-I can’t imagine having no pony to talk to, or to have fun with, o-o-or have a sh-shoulder to cry on!”

Applejack tilts her Stetson over her eyes. Luminous guesses to hide her tears. He also thinks that they are being a biiit much. “Guys, it’s fine really.” He gives them all a smile. But it’s obvious that he’s about to break down as well.

“No it’s not!”

A rainbow streak suddenly flies straight towards Luminous and he finds out that Rainbow Dash has just pulled him into a hug. She buries her face unto his chest to hide her teams and blush, causing him to blush a little bit. The others were obviously equally shocked. “It’s not fine at all. I know how it’s like to have friends, and it’s one of the best feelings ever! To be loved, cared about, and to have somepony else to love and care about too! I feel like you out of all ponies need and deserve that feeling the most.”

Luminous looks down at her in shock. “W-wait, you guys really meant all that stuff on the elevator, huh?”

“Of course we did, sugarcube! Why wouldn’t we?” Applejack says and gives him a heartfelt smile.

“We wouldn’t ever lie about that.” Rarity says and does the same, followed by Pinkie and Fluttershy.

Luminous could tell that they meant every word of what they said, and began to tear up again. Not out of sadness, but out of joy. “Awwww, you guys!” Luminous then hugs Rainbow Dash(who is still in his arms) back with a squeeze which she happily returns.

Suddenly Pinkie comes from the side and tackles him into a hug screaming out “GROUP HUG!!”

And group hug they do. Pinkie then gets an idea and starts tickling Luminous, who starts laughing hysterically. He’s holding up Rainbow, so he tries his hardest to stay up but eventually gives out and falls on his back taking Rainbow with him(the others don’t fall). After snapping out of their daze from falling they take note of the position they’re in. Rainbow is on top of Luminous with her barrel pressed completely against his. They look at each other with wide eyes and blush immensely. The others can only watch in shock while Pinkie watches in excitement.

Holy Celestia, you can grind MEAT on his chest!

Haysoos Christ, her fur is so soft!

The continue to stare in each other’s eyes. Then they slowly begin to close the gap. Both are having no idea what’s going on and can’t seem to stop moving. Luminous suddenly gets an idea of exactly what’s going on.

PINKIE STOP FIDDLING WITH THE STORY!!!

Awwww, you no fun!

The two pegasi suddenly come to their senses and immediately get up and look away from each other, still blushing.

“W-What just happened?!” Applejack asks in shock and confusion.

“How about let’s just pretend that never happened and enjoy the party?” Fluttershy suggests.

Luminous and Rainbow say in unison, “Yes, lets us PLEASE do that!”

And so they enjoy the party.


After the few hours the party was coming to a close and everyone was about to return home. But Luminous had one last thing he wanted to do. “Wait! I still have that thing I wanted to show you guys!”

So he leads them to the edge of the island. “We were floating in a rock this whole TIME?!” Rarity practically screams in shock.

“Yes but don’t worry, it’s completely safe. No it’s not. So without further adieu, let me show you what my curie mark stands for.” After showing them all his flank so they could see it(Yes, Rainbow blushed when it was her turn), he flies of the edge and faces them, hovering in mid air. He then closes is eyes, and when he opens them they are glowing green. He then flares out his wings and out comes the Aurora Borealis, causing exclaims if surprise and awe from his small audience. Just like last time, these lights would stretch out through the entire world.

When he touches down on the ground, the applause is immediate. He bows like a gentleman.

“Luminous, that was amazing!” Rainbow Dash says with a huge smile.

Luminous rubs the back of his head with a small blush. “Aw, shucks.”

“How did you learn to do that!?” Applejack asks.

He shrugs, “Don’t know. I was just born with it, I guess.”

Pinkie zipped over to him and started bouncing in place. “Thatwassocoolandawesomeandprettyandallotherwordsthatdescribefun!!!”

Luminous was fluent in Pinkie so he understood what she said and thanked for it. “Thanks a lot Pinkiiiiiiee...” He says with a yawn. “Man, we really should get to bed.”

“But how ever do we get off?” Rarity asks.

Luminous thinks for a moment and snaps his fingers and four platforms of light come out from his wings.

“WOW! What are those?!” Pinkie asks.

“These platforms will take you directly to your homes. Don’t worry, they can support almost any weight.”

Rarity, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie get on without any troubles. They wave to the others and take their leave. “Fluttershy, being afraid of heights, was reluctant to get on. Luminous tells her to look at her platform to find out that he has increased the size to make it impossible to fall over. She is convinced and eventually gets on the platform taking her leave also. All that’s left is Rainbow Dash and Luminous Skies. They look at each other, blushing from what happened earlier. Rainbow was blushing a whole lot more though. Should I do it? No, I shouldn’t. B-but I want to...ah, screw it.

“H-hey, what happened earlier, I just wanna day I’m so-“ He was interrupted by a peck on the cheek from a red-faced but smiling Rainbow Dash.

“Apology accepted.”

Luminous was too much in a daze to respond before she took of to her own house made of clouds. Luminous slowly put a wing to his cheek and the corners of his lips slowly rose and he jumped into the air and howled in joy.


THE NEXT DAY

Luminous Skies is standing at the front door of Rainbow Dash’s house.

“C’mon, Lulu! You got this. Just knock on her door and ask her if she wants to go for a fly! Simple.” Luminous puts his hoof inches away from the door but holds it there...for like five minutes.

He slaps himself in the face. “Dammit, what’s wrong with you?! All you gotta do is knock on the door twice. (Sigh) Okay, maybe whistling will make it a bit easier.”

Luminous starts whistling the Addams Family theme, and then bangs in the door twice, the second time breaking down the door.

”WHAT THE BUCK WAS THAT?!”

FUCK! I gotta clean this up before she comes down!

Using his super speed, which he now realized was faster than the speed of sound, Luminous was able to but the door back up in place and close it before Rainbow came down.

”Huh, guess it was just me.”

A sigh of relief is heard from the o outside of Rainbow’s door. She immediately swings the door open and comes face to face with a dot-eyed Luminous Skies. Both of their faces immediately go crimson.

“H-hey Luminous.”

“S-Sup Rainbow? Uhhhhhhhh...A’ight Imma just go on and say it. Do you wanna go to Cloudsdale with me.”

“...Can you give me a second?” She slams the door on his face.

What Luminous didn’t see was Rainbow Dash silently celebrating fro the other side of the door.

About thirty seconds later, she opens the door and immediately takes off.

“C’mon! Let’s go.”

Luminous just smiles and follows her. “But I must say something. I’ve never been to Cloudsdale before.”

Rainbow looks at him in disbelief. “You’re telling me, that you, a PEGASUS, has never been to Cloudsdale before?”

Luminous blushes in embarrassment. “Yeah, I’m not proud of it either.”

Rainbow grins. “Well, you’re in for a treat! Just make sure not to cry when you see it.”

Luminous looks at her in confusion. “And why would I do that?”

She smirks at his question. “You’ll see...”

After a few minutes of flying, Rainbow asks Luminous to put in a blindfold so she can surprise him.

”Hey Rainbow can I open my eyes yet?”

”Just a little while longer...”

”Oooh, I can’t wait!”

”Okay, in three, two,”

”Rainbow Dash?”

”Fluttershy! When did you get here?”

”Wait, Fluttershy’s there too?? That’s it, I’m taking off my blindfold!”

Luminous rips it off, and what he saw before him was breathtaking.

”OH MY STARS!”

Rainbow and Fluttershy turn to look at Luminous as he puts both hooves to his mouth as he looks on in awe and wonder. He just keeps shaking his head in disbelief as tears well up in his eyes.

This place looks like it’s straight out of a fantasy wallpaper! And I’m a sucker for fantasy wallpapers!

(C’mon, like y’all wouldn’t react the same way)

Rainbow walks up to him and puts a hoof on his shoulder. “Luminous? Are you alright?” She asks in concern.

Luminous closes his eyes and nods. “Yeah, it’s just that it’s my first time in Cloudsdale and I’m a little overwhelmed.”

“Well Rainbow could take you for a fly around.” Fluttershy suggests.

Rainbow smiles widely. “YES! I-I mean, yeah whatever.” She says trying to keep cool, despite her red face.

Luminous smiles with a blush. “I’m down!”

“Really? Okay! Come on then!” Rainbow immediately takes off, and Luminous eagerly follows her.


“This place is amazing, huh?” Rainbow Dash says to Luminous.

You’re amazing I-I mean, yeah!” Luminous says, chuckling nervously.

(Alright, look. It may be a little wired but as Jaden Dekay, as still a human, I thought Rainbow Dash was adorable as hell! But I never thought anything of it because it would be weird to have feelings for a HORSE! But now I’m a horse, soooooooo~)

Rainbow looks a Luminous with a little red on her cheeks. “You think I’m amazing?”

Not it’s Luminous’s turn to blush. “Ahh frick, you heard that? Well, yeah, but come on you hear that stuff all the time! Why are you suddenly blushing while I’m saying it?”

“W-What?? I’m not blushing.” Rainbow denies, her face getting redder.

“I’m pretty sure your face, which is adeautiful by the way, just got three times redder.”

Rainbow looks at him in confusion. “‘Adeautiful?’ What’s that?”

“Adorable and beautiful!” Luminous says with a smile.

Rainbow’s entire face roses up as she begins to stammer.

She looks away. “Shut up.”
