Chapter 2 – Rainbows and Sparkles

Your trot down the stairs has brought you quickly down stairs, but you don't immediately see the pegasus alarm clock.

However the missing mare comes into view on your left in the main library as you notice the pegasus slightly hovering above the ground in front of a few bookshelves. Just as your eyes meet the mare crosses her front legs over her chest as her tomboyish voice rings into the room, "About time one of you got up. It's been twenty minutes since I came in here."

The comment brings a slight bit of annoyance as you trot a little more into the main library, "Well it's not like we expected somepony to break in."

"Break in?" Rainbow rolls her hoof to your comment as she cocks her head, "Why would somepony break into a library?" You don't get to answer as she turns her head back to the bookshelf, "Anyways did you guys get the new Daring Do yet?"

You notice the mare's slightly more energetic eyes to the comment and you quickly take advantage of it as you poke a little fun to the mare that got you out of bed, "Oh a book huh?" Rainbow cocks an eye to you as you trot towards the newly shelved bookshelf with a held up head, "Well now I see why the great Rainbow Dash had a problem with cloud duty yesterday."

"Hey." The cyan mare's wings beat a little faster as she moves towards you, "I'll have you know that I got my section done in under two hours, and heck I had all of Ghastly gorge and Sweet apple acres."

A wide and cocky smile, "And at least i'm not boring yet. I mean look at this, its like eight o'clock and you just rolled out of bed."

You give a faint chuckle as you bring your voice up, however before you can roll out anything the sound of Twilight's hooves has come up as her voice rings down from the stairs, "Oh and what was that Rainbow..." You blink to the lavender mare with the wide eyed colt in her hold as she takes her last step down the stairs and into the main library.

As she rounds the half wall into the room she cocks her head to her friend as she speaks up, "Did I hear you making fun of when we got up? Because I do know somepony who takes naps just about all day under a certain tree or on a certain cloud."

Rainbow blinks to the mare's tone in silence, you on the other hoof can't help but laugh from the mare's burn with such a well spoken tone.

To the cyan mare's silence a faint giggle rolls from Twilight as she turns back into the other room and towards the high chair, "So why are you here so early."

Rainbow slowly brings herself to the ground as she flips her mane out of her face as a slightly lower tone rings from her, "You know I don't really like to pick up any books with a lot of ponies around..."

"Oh ya, the new Daring Do came in." Twilight slowly eases the slightly wiggling colt into the chair as she turns her eyes towards the ceiling in thought.

As Twilight goes silent Rainbow starts her trot to where her friend stands, but her eyes move to the little colt as she speaks up, "You know Aerolight does look a lot like you...But..."

You and Twilight both turn your attentions to the mare as she squints to the little colt that now leans his head a little closer towards the cyan pegasus as her voice comes back up, "Well why does he have pink eyes?"

You blow to the comment as you lighten your stance, "I don't know how can I do magic."

"HA, that's easy." Rainbow snaps her head back to you as she pokes her hoof towards you, "That's because you're an alien."

A proud smile comes to your face as you hold your stance. However your smile quickly brings a response form Rainbow as she takes herself from the ground and turns back towards the colt with her front hooves out and with a now unbeknownst to her higher pitched voice, "But he's much much cuter-..."

The pegasus's hooves stop as her friend's voice comes up, "Sorry Rainbow, no playing until after breakfast."

Rainbow blinks to the comment but she lowers herself back to the ground as she shrugs, "Alright, I don't really have to go anywhere for a bit anyways."

A faint giggle comes up from Twilight as she starts her trot into the kitchen.

You cock your head to the comment as you bring your voice up, "Hmm, Rainbow not having to do anything..." You hold a sly smile to her as you continue, "I thought you always said I needed more friends-..."

"Whoa whoa whoa..." Rainbow's voice spikes back to it's normal tomboyish banter as the mare's wings flare out a little, "Ok first off all Fluttershy's animal friends are in hibernation, Applejack is getting all of her harvesting done, it's the last month before Hearts and Hooves month so pretty much every foal was born around now so Pinkie is helping with the Cakes and Rarity is swamped with dress orders..." Her hoof comes up to you as her voice raises a little, "And I am not going to model for her dress stuff."

"So four other friends right? And it's not like you have a stallion to-..." Your comment is cut off before you can even take another breath as Rainbow speaks up, "Hey, I have NO problem getting a stallion friend..." Her hoof slowly comes down as she shifts a little in her stance, "It's just every stallion in town is boring."

The low tone from the cyan mare doesn't stay long though as she puffs her chest out, "You know, maybe i'll just stop by later." She brings her eyes to a half opened gaze as she pokes her head a little towards you from where she stands, "I wouldn't want to get as dull as you egg heads, so I think i'll just take the book now."

As her comment ends Twilight trots back into the room as she rolls her eyes to her friend's comment and floats two bottle to the table beside the high chair. The little colt's eyes follow the bottles for the moment as he lets out a baby like squeal which bounces around the house.

Twilight holds a smile to the sound but her voice comes up to Rainbow as she stops her trot for the moment, "The book is on the third shelf fourth slot on the right of the first bookshelf on your left."

Rainbow and you both blink to the lavender mare as her horn starts up in a low purple glow, "What?"

Neither one of you question Twilight's abilities as the cyan mare starts to trot back into the room you still stand in. As she trots past you you speak up, "So who let you in again?" You turn your head around the room once more just in case the little purple dragon blended into the wood and colorful books, unlikely but you still felt the need to check so you didn't look dumb.

Your comment doesn't change the mare's attention as she scans the bookshelf for her prize, "Violet let me in."

"Violet?" You turn back around the library as Rainbow pulls her book from the shelf and casually tucks it under her wing, "Ya she went up to the loft."

You nod your head as you look to the smallish stair case that sits off to the side in the library, the loft much like the basement is one of those places you never really think to look. Seeing as how the only books that are kept up there are most likely space things there's really nothing to look at, well except Twilight's telescope, but looking up into the night sky through that thing has always brought an uneasy feeling.

Your trot up the short staircase is brought to a quick end as you turn your gaze around the upper floor of the main library to the small side table that sits in the little nook that sits well out of sight from the bottom of the stairs. And sitting in one of the chairs is the light purple mare with her head resting on the table almost like she's asleep...Or in deep thought with the book she pulled from the shelf.

A faint confused smile comes up as you trot over to the young mare, "Why are you up here?"

Violet's ear flicks to your voice as she picks her head up and begins to rub her head with her hooves. But she doesn't turn around to answer your question as you stop your trot.

"You feeling alright?" You squint your eyes to the light purple mare as you notice her back legs twitching a little from where they rest on the floor.

A quick shake of the head comes from her as she stands from her seat with her head hanging a little low and her eyes half shut as if she didn't sleep all night.

Her response prompts you to take another step forwards as you move your hoof to feel her head, it's not like you're really able to tell if she's got a fever with your hoof but the fast thought has already sent your hoof up to her head as you push her mane out of the way a little. "What's wrong?"

Violet brings her hooves up in quick motion as she moves a little from your hoof's reach.

"Hot?" You a faint chuckle comes up from you as you nod to the closed window in front of Twilight's telescope, "It's snowing outside." Despite your slight chuckle you still direct your thoughts to the mare as you hold your hoof out towards the stairs, "Well lets see what your mom has to say."

The young mare trots past you with her head still hanging low and her tail flicking a little, you follow after her as you call out through the room, "Twilight I think Violet's sick."

It only takes you a moment for you and the young mare to trot down the stairs but as you do the lavender mare has already brought herself to the edge of the main library's entrance as she stares to the young mare, "What? What's wrong Violet?"

Rainbow halts her stop towards the door as she turns her attention to Violet, "Hey you better not be sick, I can't get sick this week."

Violet ignores the comment as she brings her hooves up to Twilight with the same response she gave you.

However Twilight blinks to the comment as she lowers her head a little, "What kind of hot? Do you feel like you have a fever?"

Violet shakes her head as Twilight looks to Rainbow for a second.

As the two mare's eyes meet Rainbow's voice comes up as she nods her head, "Ya I think I smell it to..."

You blink to the two nodding mares as Twilight takes a hoof forward towards Violet, "Come on sweetie, you should just get some rest." Violet doesn't contest the request as she trots after her mother.

However you bring your voice up as you watch them trotting towards the stairs, "Wait what's wrong?"

Your comment squints Rainbow's eyes to you, "Y-you don't smell anything?"

Her comment brings a slight bit of annoyance as you shift your head between the lavender mare who continues to trot up the stairs, "No, what's wrong."

"Awww..." Rainbow trots over to you as she ruffles your mane, "Look Twilight, somepony gots a bad nose-..." Her own words turn her head as she takes her hoof from you, "Wait...Then how did you two mess up twice?"

Twilight stops her trot at the top of the stairs as she holds her voice to Violet, "Just get some rest Sweetie." A smile comes to her face as she watches the young mare trotting down the hall, but her smile doesn't hold for long as she turns herself back to the stairs as she quickly trots down them with an annoyed stare to her friend, "Because Rainbow, we didn't plan for a human turned pony or a failed spell to make it happen."

"Pff..." Rainbow rolls her hoof to the lavender mare as she gives a slight chuckle, "Ya ya ya."

You shift your head between them as you speak up a little louder, "What's wrong?"

"Violet is going through her first estrous cycle." Twilight's comment run to your ears as she turns her trot back towards the colt sitting in the high chair that has just been looking weird eyed around the room.


"Heat, you mule." Rainbow shakes her head to you as she turns to Twilight.

However the comment straightens your posture as you speak up, "What! No, hell no."

Your blunt reaction brings a laughing response from Rainbow as she takes on a mocking tone. However Twilight is the one to speak up as she wiggles her hoof to you, "It's perfectly normal for a mare her age to go through this."

Rainbow nods her head as she rolls her hoof, "Well she is a month early for you to consider it normal...But it's not unnatural." Her magenta eyes look over your body as she cocks a smile, "But you know why would she be normal."

The comment doesn't have an affect on you as you hold to your first reaction, "Don't care." You turn your head to Twilight as you speak up, "Find a spell to stop it."

A little giggle comes up to Twilight as she just turns to the dark cream colt.

"Alright, well i'll see you guys later." Rainbow blows her mane as she puffs her chest out, "I would hate to see what happens when all those young stallions show up at your door." She playfully cocks her head to you as she notices your annoyance, "Violet has to be like the only mare in heat right now...Good luck."

Ok, i've had enough. You hold your hoof to the door as you trot over to it on three legs, "Alright bye Rainbow thanks for stopping bye-..."

She presses her hoof to your chest as she stops you from opening the door, "Wait!..." She turns her head around her as she whispers to you, "You don't want to open the door for too long ~o-ok?" Towards the end of her comment she loses her composure as she breaks out in a loud laugh that rings around the room.

The mare's laugh sparks a loud shrill response from Areolight as the colt wiggles his hoofs playfully, "HAAAH!!"

You open the door as you speak up, "Thank you Rainbow."

The cyan mare holds her laugh as she trots out into the winter chilled world, "Ya ya, C-ya later." However her trot stops as she turns back to you, "Oh ya, and Aerolight has pink eyes because he's the spawn of Cheesy Heart...Just wait."

You blink to the name as she quickly starts up in a slight laugh, "Hey...You know maybe for your birthday we can see if you still got that thing in you." She taps her hoof to her mouth as she continues, "That would be the best prank to pull on this town, you know letting you out."

"Good bye Rainbow." You slowly close the door to the mare as she nods her head and trots away.

As the door closes you turn your head towards the stairs. You know that Violet is not a little filly anymore but today so far has just been another reminder as to how fast ponies really grow up.

Your thoughts are brought to an end as Twilight's voice comes up, "No Aerolight, we don't spit the applesauce out..."

You turn your head as you trot over towards her. The sound of your hooves turn Twilight's stare as she floats the spoon and cup of mashed apples to you, "Here you try."

Without hesitation your own purple magic comes over the two items, but you speak up before you start your attempt, "S-should you go and talk to Violet?"

There's a moment of silence as Twilight gives a sheepish shrug, "She knows what it is...And it's better for a mare to work through it her way. Every pony reacts different."

You reluctantly nod to the comment as you float the spoon into the baby food. Note to self, watch who goes up stairs.
