The Mane 6 (accept Twilight) were sitting in sugarcube corner awaiting their orders, the pink maned Mrs cake was manning the counter today and had her hands full. Pinkies expression held a depressed frown her hair straight and sad. Applejack held a newspaper in her mouth and threw it in the table. " I told you to keep her safe when out," growled applejack. " and now she has been arrested, it's all your fault."
Pinkies eyes welled up a lone tear sliding down her eye." I.. I didn't mean to, I didn't know that their was drugs at the party. I didn't know that she was given them. I know I was supposed to watch over her but how was I to know that someone spikes her drink. Raritys eyes made contact with pinkies and pinkie looked at her hopefully but rarity just looked away giving an annoyed huff.
Rainbow dash was awfully quiet during the conversation/plea and the following silence made even worse when fluttershy gave a hurt stare at pinky. The silence was finally broke when Mrs cake came over with the drinks, today everyone got the same a purple smoothie.
Upside was the epitome of happiness, the scoop he got the day before had just blown up. Everyone was talking about it and this definitely helped his persuit of fame and more importantly a promotion. He was no longer Upside the reporter, but now Upside the chief of outer Appaloosa journalism. This was a big step in his lifelong dream of owning a news company.
Upsides happiness radiated off of him like a sun, literally. Upside had a peculiar ability, this being the ability to sense or give of emotions in a way that affects others. When he was little his parents would bring him to places like funerals to lighten the mood. But what he didn't know then was that his ability was being paid for. All of those funerals his family paid for what upside did. The thing is his family didn't need the money. They didn't need it but had it to buy off land and force people to pay them in an endless cycle.
About 1 year later though they were caught in a drug trade and were exposed as addicts, it turns out equestria has a terrible drug problem and that needs to be fixed, so people would expose addicts in hope of dissuading people from doing the messy narcotics, and to get a sweet pay check.
The musky smell of the dark dirty mines of canterlot were an uninviting thing to observe, let alone partake in. Twilight chipped away at the dark blue walls of canterlots lower catacombs every now and then seeing a dusty and grimy pony to hand in the valued crystals she was sent here to mine. Her only form of company was a short stallion ( possibly foals use to small size ) named numit.
She asked about his name and he just replied with, " mistakes were made in the heat of passion," Numit told twilight that his fur used to be black and white spotted but now was just black and his luscious mane was a dull green. The only thing that he "says" remains normal in these icky mines is his eyes. His eyes were a deep green and had white pupils. Despite this he claims to have perfect eyesight and comments on how yellow twilights purple mane looks.
Twilight was mostly alone however as she only has 5 hours of sleep time and wants to use that to the fullest and that she also the only time she has any form of communication. The purple unicorn squealed in glee as she just un earthed a rather shiny gem. If this gem is diamond she could move to a more open location for the time being and relax for a bit whilst the guard takes the rare mineral up to a lab 100 meters up.
There are 10 layers to the underground mining prison.

Layer three - the training layer.
This layer is purely used to train for the second layer and to train hard enough to get up their.
Layer four - the show layer.
