Chapter 2

"BBBFF! You're alive!" Twilight hugged him and Rainbow quickly started to get rid of the tension from Shining Armour showing up.

"It's good to see to Twilight but I'm afraid visiting you is not why I'm here." Twilight moved out of the doorway and Shining walked in.

"Why are you here then?" Shining Armour didn't answer, but instead looked at all the others. When he looked at Rainbow, his eyes narrowed.

"You!" he said fiercely.

"Sup." Rainbow answered calmly, even though she was ready to pick up her bag and bolt up the stairs.

"Put your hooves behind your back! You 're under arrest for piracy!" Rainbow ignored what he had said.

"So I'm guessing you didn't enjoy your swim to shore. That's to bad."

"What do ya mean by piracy? RD ain't no pirate." Applejack stood up and faced him.

"That's what you think." Shining Armour took out his sword and threw it at her. Rainbow heard several screams but she focused on the blade that was coming towards her. Suddenly she threw her hoof out and caught the handle of the sword. Her friends gasped and Rainbow inspected the weapon she was holding.

"And I thought I took bad care of my sword. When was the last time you cleaned this thing?" She swung it around a few times. The weapon was heavy and did a poor job at going through the air smoothly.

"Did she just say 'her sword'?" asked Rarity.

"Yep. One sec." Rainbow dropped Shining Armour's sword. She walked over to the fireplace, reached it into it, and pulled out her sword. She turned around and all her friend's eyes widened at the sight. "See. My sword."

"Enough of this! Quit stalling and put your hooves behind your back!"

"Hmm... Let me think about it... No."

"Is Dashie really a pirate?"

"Yes, yes I am. That's what I was going to tell you guys before he knocked." Rainbow bowed to Shining Armour. "It's been fun but its time to leave." She darted to her bag, quickly grabbed it and ran up the stairs.

"You're not getting away this time!" She could hear him heading up the stairs. Rainbow ran into the bathroom and locked the door behind her. Her other things were in here. She quickly put on her coat and tricone, as well as pull on her boots. both her pistols were in her coat and sheathed her sword. "Get out of there!" The door was obviously not an option so that left the tiny window. Instantly she smashed it as well as some of the wood around it. Not wasting any time she grabbed her bag, jumped through, and grabbed a nearby branch. She jumped branch to branch, than lept out out of the tree and landed on the ground rolling a few feet. She picked herself off of the ground. Rainbow looked back at the library and saw her friends staring at her through the window.

"Bye." she whispered than ran off, heading for the docks. She heard a door slamming open.

"Get back here!" yelled Shining. The chase was on and Rainbow was just thankful she still had her saddlebags. If Shining Armour hadn't cut her wing last time they had fought, she would be at the docks already. Sometimes it felt like life hated her. She didn't blame it. Several guards jumped out of nowhere and blocked her path. She skidded to a halt and pulled out one of her pistols. She pointed it at them.

"I suggest you move before I make your brains explode." The guards looked worried but they stayed still. "You asked for it." She pulled the trigger as she used two bullets to shoot their legs so they fell over. "See ya." Rainbow began running again. The commotion she was causing grew attention from ponies all over town. She was lucky there was nopony in the street so far but she had to go through the marketplace before reaching the docks. Soon she reached the market. It was like a game of dodgeball, except with ponies. Rainbow ran around them and jumped over them. She was quickly through and turned to see Shining Armour and other guards struggling to get through.


"Was that Rainbow Dash?"


"Was she wearing a pirate costume?"


"Do you have any idea what she's doing."



Rainbow was nearing the docks. She could see the Pearl off in the distance and it was getting closer with every step. She was getting tired but she could barely notice over all the adrenaline pumping through her blood.

"It's about time you showed up! Come on!" Rainbow tossed up her bag and grabbed the rope that had been tossed down. She looked towards the deck and saw the bag get covered in a red aurora. "Are you really climbing up that slow?!" A minty green head poked over the side and looked down angrily at her. "Hurry up!"

"Halt! Stay where you are so you can be arrested!" yelled a guard, who was standing next to Shining Armour.

"Is it just me or do you guys get dumber everyday?" There was several clicks and she saw most of her crew pointing guns at the guards. Rainbow continued climbing up the rope. She was soon on deck. "Welcome back captain. Great to have your stupid plot back on board."

"Glad to be back, Aqua." Her second in command rolled her golden, her gold and yellow falling into her face.

"You're an idiot sometimes."

"As are you. Must run in the family, cuz."

"Sure it does. Don't you have some soldiers to yell at?"

"Yep." Rainbow walked over to the edge. "You suck at your jobs!" She turned to face her crew. "Let's blow this pop stand!" They all cheered and prepared to set sail.

"Rainbow Dash! I will catch you and you will get what you deserve!"

"Sure you will Armour! See ya later!" With that said, the Black Pearl set sail for whatever would happen next.


"Dashie's a... pirate?" asked Pinkie.

"It would explain the long trips. But why didn't she tell us? Doesn't she trust us?" asked Rarity.

"I don't know." said Twilight. They were still staring where she had disappeared on the horizon, closely followed by Shining Armour.

"Do ya think she'll be okay? Ah may be mad at her for not tellin us but Ah don't want her to get hurt"

"I hope she'll be okay."

"Is this a bad time?" Twilight turned and saw Sweetie Belle and Applebloom in the doorway.

"No, come in. What do you girls need?"

"We stopped by to return this book we borrowed last week. Also we have a question. Why was Rainbow Dash running through town in a pirate costume?"

"Pinkie Pie dared her to. Didn't you Pinkie?"


"May I see the book?" The two fillies gave the book to her. Suddenly smoke filled the room. Everypony started coughing. One by one they all fell to the floor and passed out. Twilight was the last one to drift into the gas induced sleep. A pair of black hooves stood in front to her face.

"Take them all. Yes! All of them. We will use them to catch her. Rainbow Dash, you better watch your back, Black Dust is going to get you this time.

Not sure. It's still being written. Curse my lack of ideas!!! :raritycry:

:rainbowderp: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :flutterrage:

3036361 I-I might be able to live I guess... :fluttercry:

I'll try to get the next chapter out as soon as possible and make it good.


My advice. Don't start the next one till you have at least a vague plan for the next few chapters. then you can work things along and get them out easier.


It also really helps for creating build up and foreshadowing.

Brain Malfunction!!!!!!!! 5 seconds til meltdown!!!

What, the (black) pearl?!
Also, we need a KRAKEN at some point

IS THIS DEAD?!?! pls say no... :fluttercry:

Shining Armour. You will always remember this as the day you almost caught Rainbow Dash.

If this story is up for adoption I'll take it. Just tell me.

If I don't get an answer soon I'm taking it. I already have so many ideas for it
