When The Tables Turn - Songswirl



Before Nightmare Moon came to be, Scaremare Sun took her place. Celestia was Scaremare Sun. Celestia was tired of her royal subjects avoiding the sun because of its burns. She worked restlessly converting that anger into her new shell: Scaremare Sun.

An Eerie Sunshine

Luna inspected the room again and again. "This can't be happening, this can't be HAPPENING!" she paniced. She stopped. "Pinch me." said Luna softly. She was looking out the window in Celestia's bedroom. The sun was rising slowly, and it covered the moon. "Well I'll be an alicorn's aunt." Luna muttered softly.

"You ARE an alicorn's aunt! Neice? Hello?" Cadence said impatiently.

"Look! SHE'S rising the sun! Who is that?" Luna screeched. "Wait. No, it... It CAN'T be her!" Said Luna with disbeleive. "Tia... No." She whispered. A single tear drop formed in her eye. Luna reached her hoove out the window, reaching for Celestia. "She's... Turned." Luna whimpered softly.

"Huh? What does that mean?" Cadence asked.

"Since we're princesses, we're the kind leaders of something. But we can change our personalities. You know King Sombra? How he took over your land? He turned. Forever evil. Sometimes you can change that. Sometimes..." Luna paused, and let out yet another teardrop. "Sometimes you can save them." Luna said softly.

"Luna, I promise we will save Celestia. No matter what it takes, no matter how much of our time we must give, no matter how much strength we must use to do it, we will save Celestia." Cadence said, encouragingly.

"Cadence, we should name this monster that has taken over Celestia." Luna stated.

"How about X-Tia?" Cadence suggested.

"No, that's too..." Luna looked for a word that didn't sound offensive."... weird?" she said akwardly. "She's scary, hopefully still a mare, and controls the sun." Luna said slowly. She put the three together. "How about "Scaremare Sun"?"

Luna asked. "Sounds cool!" said Cadence.

"This situation is NOT cool." Luna pointed out.

"Sorry!" said Cadence.

The two fillys looked out the window again. To the fillys, the sun seemed bigger, brighter, and not surprisingly, hotter. All of the ponies who lived in Canterlot looked out their windows. You'd think they'd just buy new light-blocking curtains, but they had other plans. Ponies spilled onto the streets, panicking, as if it was the appocalipse. "Well, do something! You can shout REEEAALLY loud so that everypony in Canterlot can hear you, right?" Cadence asked, as she looked down at the subjects of Canterlot. Equestria was small, and the only city that existed currently was Canterlot.

"Well..." Luna trailed off. "I can use the royal Canterlot voice."

"Well,What in Equestria are you waiting for? Use it!" Cadence said, angrily.

"Fine." Said Luna. She flew high in the air, and took a deep breath. "CITIZENS OF EQUESTRIA. THOU ROYAL PRINCESS THAT RAISES THE MOON SHALL WATCH OVER THEE TEMPORARILY! THOU PRINCESS OF THE NIGHT IS UNABLE TO RAISE THE MOON CURRENTLY, AND WE MUST LIVE WITH OUR SUN." Echoed farther than just Canterlot. It spread through Equestria.

Ponies screached from miles around. Bumping into each other, finding their loved ones, hugging each other over and over, crying, the chaos didn't seem to stop. "Hmmmm..." Thought Luna. Then a lightbulb practically lit up in her head. "DO NOT PANICK, THE ROYAL STORE IS HAVING A SALE ON LIGHT-LOCKING CURTAINS." shouted Luna in her royal Canterlot voice. Ponies piled infront of the doors for the royal store. After every single unicorn, pegasus and earth ponie was in the store, she locked the doors. "Alright, now that we have them out of the way," Luna smiled.

"I need supplies." Cadence smiled.

"For what?" Luna asked.

"A fake moon!" Cadence cheered.

Luna made a face at this suggestion. She could have laughed Equestria into insanity, the idea was so silly.

Cadence recognized this gesture. "Yeah, I guess it's a silly idea to make a fake moon." Cadence said sadly.

Luna and Cadence thought together. Two heads is better than one, so it was good that they cooperated.

"Well, let's see. Scaremare Sun can't destroy anything bright or warm, since she's both. She can destroy cold. Where would we keep her?" Luna asked.

"We can't keep her, she needs to go!" Cadence fussed.

"No, this is part of the process of saving her. We need to put her somewhere that will keep her contained, an let her think. Eventually, she will escape, and I know it. Then, we fight her. And we don't stop until she's back, and her true self is here. But we don't have any place to keep her." Luna explained.

The sun was changing colors. It went from yellow, and gradually changed to a bright green. This got everypony's attention. All the ponies piled up at the door and windows of the royal gift shop. Eventually, somepony managed to break the glass door. Ponies screamed, crashed into each other, cried, packed up, and prepared for an apocalypse. Luna put her hoof to her forehead, as did Cadence.

After all the ponies had locked them self's inside their houses, Luna and Cadence began to think again. Cadence looked at the sun. "You know, why not put the jail cell on the sun?" Cadence laughed.

Luna paused her pacing at this suggestion. "Cadence,that's BRILLIANT!" Luna grinned.

"It was a joke, but thanks!" Cadence smiled.

"I know how to put her on the sun, but I'll need some help." Luna said.

"Let's get to work." Cadence grinned.

So the two fillys prepared to encounter Scaremare Sun. They packed saddles, planned out a lure, and set everything perfectly. They were ready to capture Scaremare Sun.
