Dead or Alive

A flash of light was all she saw. Blizzard Wind shot a lazer, hitting Galaxia clean in the face. But, all she saw, was a flash of light. After that incident, she fell down an endless, black hole. She screamed...and screamed.

A few minutes later, the tunnel brightened, and she found the end. The light captured her. She closed her eyes and waited for the end to come...

But she woke. She opened her eyes and stared at the sidewalk that sat before her. She was sleeping on the road?

Galaxia slowly stood up. Wow, what a dream. She started walking to her palace...wait...where was her palace? Where was SHE, for that matter.

"Hey! Never seen you here before! That must mean you're new here!" Galaxia looked at the pink earth pony that stood before her. "Oooh! An alicorn! I never knew a blue one existed here, though. What's your name?"

"Blue Sky" Galaxia said. She wasn't lying either.

"Nice name, Blue. I'm Pinkie Pie. We can be like color buddies!"

"Pinkie, do you know where I can find Luna? Or Celestia?"

"If you were looking for them, why'd you come to Ponyville? They're in Canterlot."

"Ponyville? Canterlot?" Where the hay was she?

"You really need to get out more." Blue was silent. "Well...I guess I'll have to show you where they live then..." The two started walking away.

"Where didja come from anyway?" Pinkie asked.

"Um..." She didn't remember, but it wasn't around here. "Some land you probably have never heard of. Is there a faster way to get to Canterlot?"

"Nope. We have to go by train." Oh. Fun.

The train station was just ahead. "I think I can take it from here, Pinkie."

"Okey dokey lokey! See ya around." She ran off. What a strange pony.

"A ticket for Canterlot, please." Blue told the ticket pony. He gave her a weird look and shoved over her ticket. The train ride was nothing except very boring. She finally reached the castle...she thinks. She ran up through the doors and into the throne room. Now, this place was more familiar.

Celestia was shocked at the abrupt entrance. "Who are you, rudely barging in here?"

"Blue Sky, Celestia."

"Another alicorn? I don't remember you when I --"

"You don't recognize me? I'm your mother!"

"You can't fool me, lunatic. My mother looked nothing like you. Also, she happens to be dead."

She walked up closer to Celestia. "I am your mother. I know who I am!"

"GUARDS!" Two of the royal guards grabbed Blue and dragged her away from Celestia.

Blue decided to grab information from these two, and that's exactly what she did.

Guard #1: Likes Twilight Sparkle.

Guard #2: The other guard's brother.

Twilight Sparkle? That sounds awfully similar to her sister, Midnight Sparkle, whom she defeating long ago. Maybe Guard #1 can take her to Twilight. "Sir, I may need help from Twilight Sparkle. Can you take me to her?"

He looked at the other guard before answering. "Only if I can watch your every move."

"I'm good with that. Is there a faster way there without the train?"

"You're an alicorn. You could just fly or teleport. Didn't you know that?" Oh... right"

"Ok..." She grabbed the guard and teleported back to Ponyville.


Areceus had to keep an eye on this one. She seemed pretty crazy...but peaceful...graceful...always up for adventure. Intelligent. IT was all he liked in a mare. But, now was not the time to get into the romantic side of life. He was on duty. If this loony tries to hurt Twilight, he will make sure Twi is protected, and this prosecutor be put to justice. "How do you know Twilight anyway?" He finally decided to ask.

"I believe she may be my sister. What year is this, may I ask, and what has recently happened? My memory is bad"

He told her the year. "And, we just recently had the Winter Wrap up"


She was shocked at hearing the year. "Hang on...Um...what major event has recently happened? Such as, the happening of Nightmare Moon" She remembered her daughter casting Luna into the moon, claiming that Luna was jealous and turned into nightmare moon. But, it did seem odd. It seemed like Celestia was actually jealous of Luna. Luna would never do what Celestia claimed she did.

"Twi and her friends defeated her." Good.

"Who are these ponies? They were foretold in books and I'd like to meet them."

"Miss? Where have you been? Under a rock?" She didn't bother. "Well, the names. Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie."

"Pinkie Pie? How did that crazy pony save Equestria?"

"I was confused on that part too, but she is the Element of Laughter." Makes sense. Blue had to hold back laughing AT her, because Blue Sky was no meanie.

"Is that the library?"

"Yes." He knocked on the door.
