Death, Destruction and Victory

The morning sun rose and everypony rose. Despite being awake all night, Fluttershy was as energetic as ever. She was pacing back and forth almost hoping to encounter Lyra's forces. Colgate saw this and asked, "Fluttershy, why the hay are you pacing back and forth. You are acting like you are impatiently waiting for something."

Fluttershy replied, "I'll admit, I'm ready to meet Lyra's forces and end this war. I just want things to return to normal, I want to return to racing, I just want things to go back to the way they used to be."

Colgate put her wing around Fluttershy and replied, "I know how you feel. I miss those times too. Well hopefully within a couple of days we can finish all of this. Once we capture Lyra we will take her up to Alicorn City where Scootaloo most likely already has Lemon Hearts. We will put them on trial and after that, things can return to normal."

Fluttershy smiled and said, "Good. Now it is just a matter of mending the fences with my friends. I think they don't like me anymore."

Colgate replied, "Well once this war is over, everything will be fine. We will return home, they will see you as a war hero and realize that you were just overly enthusiastic to do this."

Fluttershy looked straight ahead and saw two things. She could see Neigh Zealand off in the distance but also saw a fleet of ships just a few miles away. Fluttershy looked at Colgate and said, "The time has come. The battle is about to begin." She looked off towards Neigh Zealand and asked, "Do you have your uranium ready?"

Colgate replied, "I need to run down to my cabin and get my saddle bag. It is in it. Look, while I go down and get it you fly to the other carriers and ready the rest of our troops. We need to attack with full force."

Fluttershy nodded and sped over to the other carriers firing up the troops. When Colgate got back up to deck she could hear all the troops rallying and cheering. This brought a smile to her face. She realized that with the forces rallied up like this, that victory was certain.

The mood among the ponies on Lyra's fleet was not so jubilant. Lyra did not have a strong pony with her to rally the troops and she was in a very bad mood. Seeing the Equestrian Navy approaching her did not help matters any as it only caused her rage to grow stronger which began to erode any rational thought she had left. Black Rocks was standing next to Lyra and asked, "Well my queen, it looks like the time has come."

Lyra had a scowl on her face and growled, "Yes, the time has come. Let me handle Colgate. I will drag her sorry flank onto this ship and beat her to death. Then I will throw her corpse at her beloved soldiers."

As the two navies got closer to one another Lyra was scanning the ships and saw that Fluttershy, Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom were with them. This only made her thirst for Equestrian blood stronger. She said, "Alright General, the time to attack is now."

Lyra knew she would have to shout loud for everypony on all her carriers to hear her. She shouted as loud as she could, "CHARGE! KILL THEM ALL!"

Colgate heard this and shouted, "CHARGE! FOR EQUESTRIA!"

The soldiers on both sides launched themselves into the air and the battle began. Both forces, through intensive exercises, had become extremely agile so hits were not as easy as they used to be. Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom and Fluttershy sped towards their carriers. They were bound and determined to sink that fleet. They started to fire powerful bolts of energy at the hulls of the ships. It took around ten energy bolts to tear the hulls open. Lyra was the only pony with enough power to tear Equestria's ships apart but she stayed on the deck of her carrier waiting to confront Colgate. That however, would not happen as Colgate was headed towards Neigh Zealand to unleash the deadliest weapon in the history of ponykind.

Finally forces from both sides began to fall but because of more training, Equestrian forces were starting to take out Lyra's forces at a greater rate than they were losing soldiers of their own. Finally a few changelings along with Fluttershy made it to Lyra's carrier. Lyra began to fire energy at them but missed. Very quickly she was covered in ooze, her magic useless and she was immobilized. Fluttershy landed in front of her and began laughing. She said, "Well, well, well, what do we have here?"

Lyra sneered, "What the hay is a shy little Alicorn like you doing here?"

Fluttershy smacked her and knocked her down to the deck. She shouted, "What the hay did you say about me?" Fluttershy picked Lyra up with her magic and carried her back to the E.S.S. Colgate. Once they got there Fluttershy dropped her on the deck and said, "Lyra, your ruling days are over. You will be punished for your crimes."

Lyra sneered, "Oh really? Where is super commander Colgate?"

Fluttershy laughed, "Oh you'll find out soon enough."

While the Equestrian forces were wiping out the remains of Lyra's forces Colgate landed on the north island of Neigh Zealand, around a mile away from Prancington. She placed her uranium pellet on the ground and then sped a mile skywards. She began to glow as though she were a blue sun in the sky and could easily be seen by Lyra. Her horn began to glow, her eyes began to shine a bright white, her cutie mark began to glow as she recited, "The atoms must be split so I can send my enemies into a pit. The explosion shall be big so my enemies will squeal like a pig. The time has come to make my enemies numb. The big fire shall be great, it shall destroy all the hate."

Colgate's energy struck the pellet. The stress on the pellet grew greater and greater and then Colgate added more power to her energy beam and then BOOM, the atoms split and the whole island shook. While Colgate was speeding off to the east towards her carriers the citizens of Prancington were running in terror as they had no clue what was going on. Finally a powerful wind struck the city and leveled it, killing many of the city's citizens. Then the wall of fire struck the city, killing those who were not killed by collapsing buildings.

Lyra along with everypony else saw a blinding flash of light from the carrier and soon saw a mushroom cloud rising above the horizon. Fluttershy said, "You know Lyra, many of your citizens have just perished because of you. Are you going to surrender or are we going to have to kill more of your citizens and turn your other island into a nuclear wasteland?"

Colgate was getting close to the carrier when she heard Lyra screaming, "NO, I WILL NOT SURRENDER! NEVER! LYRA HEARTSTRINGS DOES NOT SURRENDER! I WILL GET FREE FROM THIS OOZE AND KILL ALL OF YOU!"

Colgate heard this and without even getting back to the ship she turned around, sped off to the southwest towards the south island. Once she arrived there she placed the pellet not even a quarter of a mile away from Buckland, the largest city in Neigh Zealand. Again she soared one mile skywards and again she began to glow brightly and her eyes began to shine as she recited the spell. Like on the north island, she fired a powerful beam of energy at the pellet. Again she added more energy to her bolt and BOOM, another powerful explosion occurred and Colgate sped off to the northeast. Just like in the attack on Prancington, a powerful wind leveled the city killing many and a powerful wall of fire killed those who survived the wind blast.

Lyra saw this from the carrier and realized that she had to surrender. She began to cry uncontrollably. Fluttershy held Lyra's head in her wing and began to laugh, "Well Lyra, are you still going to kill all of us?"

Colgate returned to the carrier exhausted but relieved. She saw that Fluttershy had Lyra captured and decided to ask her if she was ready to surrender. She looked at Lyra and asked, "Well Lyra, this is what you get for attacking Equestria." She paused and then continued, "So, are you going to surrender or do I have to kill more Neigh Zealanders?"

Lyra was so angry she was crying. She shouted, "FINE, I SURRENDER! CALL OFF YOUR TROOPS."

Colgate replied, "I don't have any forces invading Neigh Zealand." She looked up at Fluttershy and asked, "Fluttershy, could you go down to my cabin and get the proper documents?"

Fluttershy replied, "Of course."

Lyra's crying went from an angry cry to a cry of pure agony. It finally hit her that her actions resulted in the deaths of over a hundred thousand of the ponies that she held so dear for so long. When Fluttershy arrived with the surrender papers Lyra was curled up in a ball on the deck sobbing so loud that soldiers on the other carriers could hear it.

Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Dark Night flew over to the main carrier to watch Lyra sign the surrender papers. Colgate nudged Lyra and said, "Lyra, you can continue to cry later. For now you must take care of one piece of business for this war to be over."

Lyra replied, "But I can't sign these papers covered in ooze, my magic is immobilized."

Colgate rolled her eyes but had Dark Night put her in enchanted chains so she couldn't teleport out of there. Colgate then melted away the ooze and had Lyra read over the papers. The papers stated that Lyra is to hand over all control of Neigh Zealand to the alliance of Brevity Thrash, Colgate and Luna until a new leader can be installed there, that she is forbidden from ever travelling to Neigh Zealand again and that she will have to go before a war crimes court for her actions. Lyra did not like the terms of the surrender agreement but signed the papers.

Lyra sneered, "So Supreme Commander, what's next. Are you going to beat me with chains, whip me, try to drown me?"

Colgate snapped, "You do not sass me Lyra. You are being taken up to Alicorn City where you and Lemon Hearts will be tried for your crimes."

Lyra just sulked as Colgate's fleet set sail northwards for Alicorn Island. Colgate was happy to have finally ended the war. She was indeed sad that she had to nuke two cities but she realized that Lyra would have launched further attacks against Equestria if she didn't. Finally the deadliest, most brutal and most hateful war had drawn to a close. While The Great War was over, evils from the past would soon plunge Equestria into another war with the epicenter being in the nation's capitol.

To be concluded.......

Loyalty spell---"From another to me, that is where your allegiance will now be, you thought your old commander loved you like pie when all they wanted was for you to die. With me all shall be great, there shall be no hate."

Giving drones a mind of their own---"those without a mind are in a bind, no longer shall they just be, but they will still be loyal to me, for officers they are now but they don't ask how."

Strengthen Armor---"The one without armor does not stand a chance, so it is what we must enhance, the unarmed one will likely receive death, with armor he shall continue to draw breath, without armor he will be torn to shreds like a rag but with armor victory is in the bag."

Activate Jade Alicorn---"The jade Alicorn will help me see all, without it I might miss a brawl, while the distances are great, I can see all the hate, wisdom is what comes along with the eye so that overthrowing me nopony will try."

PINKIE'S SPELL

"The changeling's power is good, but not great, they can fire ooze but not enough to make their foes lose, for them to be great, they must fire bolts of hate, the energy shall be strong so their enemies won't last for long."

5793273 Regarding duplicating Scootaloo, here is the problem. The duplicate Scootaloo would be exactly like the original and of course that would lead to a power struggle, especially given that leadership roles have been established in other nations and as far as the leaders of other nations, Scootaloo (original or duplicate) could easily overthrow them. It is why I never had Twilight duplicate herself to watch over other provinces because she would have the same desires and would cause a global war against herself. Drones and some officers are ok to duplicate, but major characters would not be a wise idea, well in the way my stories go. Thanks for the fave.

Regarding Twilight, she was unmade by Brevity Thrash at the end of Terror in Equestria 5. And the dark Alicorn and changeling soldiers have had loyalty spells cast upon them so they will be working with protagonists, and once public enemy number one returns in # 7 (Twilight), she will take control of some changelings and dark Alicorns.

5979248 Thanks, that makes sense. Also, I just recently realized that it wasn't just a title and so I started from the beginning.
