The aftermath: You asked for it

Dear Mister Night Light,



We are saddened to announce to you that your wife, Miss Twilight Velvet, has escaped from our dungeons. We’re not really sure how. Either she yelled at the walls so much that they eventually gave up and let her escape or she just happens to be a ghost and can pass through the ceiling. Those are literally our best theories.

She’s on the run, she could be dangerous and it’s our duty to go and get her before she does anything harmful to the city. Please, we ask you for your help. The Princesses are gone for three days, we have been told that your son is not in the Crystal Empire and we’re running out of options. We don’t want to go outside in the night to get her. Celestia knows how that would end. If you could at least tell us where Prince Shining Armor is, it would be of great help.



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard.


Dear Royal Guard,



Yes, Twilight Velvet spends a lot of time thinking about how to get out of dungeons. It’s a hobby of hers.

I think the best thing you can do is let her vent out everything and do nothing. She’ll calm down eventually. Plus, there’s no way I’m getting near her when she’s like that.



Signed,

Night Light.


Dear Mister Night Light,



Please, we beg for your help again. We’ve finally found Miss Twilight Velvet: she was trying to get in the Royal Library again. We don’t know if she’s the most powerful magician we’ve encountered in ten years or if we’re just too afraid of her screams, but she got away this time and long story short now she’s using the Reading Room as her fortress.

We’re trying to get her out of there unsuccessfully, and half of us are already wounded.

Sir, please. Please.



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard.


Dear Royal Guard,



I’m afraid to say that you had it coming; I told you to leave her alone. And again, I’m not getting near her. I doubt I would be of help anyway. Have you tried asking nicely?



Signed,

Night Light


Dear Mister Night Light,



We tried asking nicely. It didn’t work out. She wants the time travelling spells, and at this rate we’ll end up giving them to her. We honestly don’t know what to do anymore. We even promised that she wouldn’t get back to the dungeons if she came out, but Miss Twilight Velvet didn’t listen. She's using one of the curtains as a whip.



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard


Dear Royal Guard,



It’s awfully nice for you to promise that! Poor Twilight Velvet just got a little stressed tonight, but she wouldn’t harm a fly. She’s such a sweetheart.



Signed,

Night Light


Dear Mister Night Light,



This is not begging anymore. We order you to come here and help us. Miss Twilight Velvet is getting better with the whip and half our guards can’t fight anymore. She may not harm a fly tonight, but apparently stallions are fine in her book.

You’re our last hope, and with Celestia as my witness I swear we won’t lose against a single unicorn! You’re her husband! If you were able to convince her to marry you, you will be able to get her out!



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard


Dear Royal Guard,



Not really. I just used my dazzling looks on her. Worked like a charm.



Sincerely,

Night light.


Dear Mister Night Light,



I said it was an order. Come here right now. The Royal Guard doesn’t care about your looks, dazzling as they may be.

Come here and help us NOW!



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard


Dear Royal Guard,



Last time I checked, civilians couldn’t be forced to participate in Royal Guard issues. I can give you moral support though.

Go Royal Guards!



Sincerely,

Night Light


Dear Night Light,



MISS TWILIGHT VELVET HAS OPENED THE DOOR AND NOW SHE’S SWITCHED HER STRATEGY TO AN OFFENSIVE ONE!

SHE’S SWEEPING US OUT! SHE’S REPELLING OUR SPELLS WITH THE WHIP!

HELP US!



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard


Dear Royal Guard,



You can repel spells with a whip? Celestia, my wife is impressive sometimes.

But don’t worry, you still have the moral high ground here. Whipping ponies is bad. Go Royal Guards!



Signed,

Night Light


Dear Night Light,



WE CAN’T WIN AGAINST THE WHIPPING DEMON! SHE’S GOING TO END US ALL!

SHE’S WHIPPING ME RIGHT NOW AND IT HURTS LIKE TARTARUS! PLEASE, HELP!



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard


Dear Royal Guard,



Twilight Velvet is whipping you and you still send me a letter? I don’t really understand how that works, but Princess Celestia can be proud of her Royal Guards’ dedication.

I think screaming for help would be more more efficient, though. But hey, I’m nopony to tell you how to do your job.

And don’t worry, I’m sure she’ll get tired soon. She only switches to attacking when she’s about to run out of batteries.



Signed,

Night Light


Dear Mister Night Light,



This is probably going to be the last letter I ever send. I would prefer sending this to my wife and daughter, but the captain has fallen and he was the only one who knew how to change the automatic spell. So I ask you to look for them once this is over, and make sure they know I love them.

I can see the Whipping Devil approaching me. I can see the evil spark in her eye. There’s only the two of us left, and once the whip swings again, there will only be one.

I spent six years training with the spear. I’m the best spearstallion in the Royal Guard. I don’t have my loyal weapon with me this time, only a broken mop. But it will have to do it.

There’s no hope left. I know I won’t make it. But I will try. For the ones who tried before me and failed, and for the ones who ran in despair. For my comrades.

FOR CELESTIA!



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard


Dear Royal Guard,



How dramatic. I’m dying to know what happens next!



Signed,

Night Light


Dear Night Light



I made it. My eyes are shutting closed, and I don’t know how much time I have left, so I’ll go straight to the point: the Whipping Demon seemed to calm down and fell asleep all of a sudden. However, I will follow her in no time. I’m too tired to keep going.

We won, Mister Night Light.

It cost us everything, but we won.



Sincerely,

The Royal Guard


Dear Royal Guard,



Oh my, she fell asleep? How adorable!

Anyway, I guess I need to go and get her now. She’ll hurt her back if she sleeps on the floor. Plus we have special visitors and Twilight Velvet has to be here. I've already bought popcorn and everything.



Signed,

Night Light
