An Emergency Meeting of the Allies

After seeing the murders of the grand princes unfold along the Equine Empire/Saddle Arabia border Colgate realized that the reserves would need to be notified and that she would need to bring Luna and Brevity to Ponyville to notify them. Colgate said, "Scootaloo, we need to go to Sugarcube Corner. This is usually when most of my reserves are having their mid-day get together. Let's get going."

Colgate and Scootaloo flew over to Sugarcube Corner and walked in. Given that Colgate has only went there when there are threats to Equestria everypony looked up at her with concern. Applejack got a worried look on her face and asked, "Whoa-nelly, what is going on for you to be here?"

Colgate replied, "We will discuss that at the meeting over at the base. Applejack, I need you to gather the rest of your family and go over there. Rainbow, Fluttershy, I need you to come with me to go get Brevity and Luna. You two are my fastest fliers and we need to get them back here ASAP. The rest of you, go over to the base and await our return. It should be twenty minutes max."

Rarity asked, "What happened? Did Twilight somehow reform?"

Colgate replied, "No. I will inform you all at the base. Come on, let's get going."

Fluttershy asked, "So who will we be going to get first?"

Colgate replied, "We will go get Brevity first. Then we will go get Luna. Come on, chop-chop."

With the sense of urgency Colgate seemed to be in the two Alicorns realized that they had no time to waste. They followed Colgate outside and waited for her to cast the necessary spells. Once they got outside they faced the west as Colgate began to recite the necessary spells.

She started out by reciting the time bubble. "A bubble is what we need, so from frozen time we can be freed, in this bubble we can move fast, while everything else is stuck in the past, it is frozen time which through we must pass so we will never be late to class." She then recited the spell to freeze time, "Tick tock, tick tock, look at the racing clock, what is short is time and being late is a crime, we must finish on top so it is time I must stop, with time froze, it is my enemies I shall bulldoze."

Time was now frozen and everypony outside the bubble was frozen in place. Colgate said, "Alright everypony, let's get going."

All three began to flap their wings with a furious pace. They had to be careful not to break the sound barrier though, which both Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy could do way too easily if they didn't remain focused. Finally in what was three minutes they could see Alicorn City in the distance. Colgate ordered them to stop so she could restart time and undo the time bubble.

She started by reciting the spell to unfreeze time. "Look at the clock, it is stuck in place, with this there can be no pace, everything is still but that does not fit the bill, for now the clock shall again run so everypony can have fun." Time outside the bubble resumed and all movement continued. She then recited the spell to undo the time bubble. "In the bubble time continues to run, but now the time outside runs and allows fun, the bubble must burst so we can quench our thirst, from the bubble we are now free and everything we can clearly see."

Now the bubble was gone and they felt a light breeze blowing in their faces. Colgate said, "Come on, we need to get to Alicorn City and notify Brevity of what is happening."

The three sped with great haste to Alicorn City. Brevity was out on her balcony having a mid-morning snack when the three landed in front of her. Brevity looked up and asked, "Colgate, Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, what brings you three here?"

Colgate replied, "We will discuss this later, we need to get to Maredrid, pick up Luna and then head back to Ponyville. Some unexpected events have happened and an emergency meeting is necessary."

Brevity asked, "Colgate, couldn't you just drop Brevity off in Ponyville and then you three go to Maredrid and get Luna?"

Colgate replied, "Brevity, that would use up and extra minute or two and we have no time to waste. Besides, with you flying with us we can get to Maredrid much quicker."

Brevity seemed kind of frustrated but gathered around the other three Alicorns and Colgate cast the necessary spells. They decided to fly west and cross the vast eastern parts of the Equine Empire to get to Maredrid. The trip there was fairly quick as it took no more than five minutes. Luna was in her throne room visiting with some citizens who had stopped by to talk. There was a knock on the throne room door. General Black Night walked in with Brevity, Colgate, Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash. Luna looked over and asked, "Colgate, what brings the four of you here?"

Colgate replied, "Luna, we have no time to waste. We need to get back to Ponyville as soon as possible."

Luna asked, "Colgate, can't you see I have company? I do not like to bolt out of here when I am visiting with my fellow equines."

Gray Hooves, one of the ponies Luna was chit-chatting with said, "Your majesty, I know that important royal duties come along. My brother and I can come back and talk at another time."

Luna asked, "Are you two sure?"

Gray Hooves replied, "Yes, it sounds important. You better get going."

Gray Hooves and his brother left the throne room and Luna asked, "Ok, what is it that brings you here and why the hay is it so urgent. There hasn't been anything truly threatening happen in this world in over 3,000 years."

Colgate replied, "Alright, it involves Lemon Hearts and Lyra and something that happened close to your border with Saddle Arabia."

Luna's attitude changed quickly and she said, "Alright, let's get to Ponyville. We need to make a plan of action."

Colgate smiled as Luna gathered around the four. Colgate again cast the necessary spells and they sped off to the west. Five minutes later they landed in Ponyville at the base where Colgate cast the proper spells so they could start the meeting. Colgate was pleased to see that all her reserves and her entire military were standing at attention. Colgate headed up to the front and said, "At ease."

Everypony became at ease and Colgate continued, "I am sure all of you are wondering why I have brought Queen Luna and Goddess Brevity here for a military meeting on such short notice."

Brevity replied, "Actually yes, Brevity is wondering why you have done this."

Colgate motioned for her and Luna to fly up to the front stage. They flew up to the front stage and Colgate continued, "Alright everypony, events have unfolded in Saddle Arabia that must be addressed. I was scanning the world a few weeks ago and I saw Lyra and Lemon Hearts having a meeting in Ridead."

Applejack asked, "Alright but why is that so important?"

Colgate cleared her throat and continued, "Well, they had already had a meeting in Prancington and Lyra has begun to modernize her army and she is dead set on forcing Lemon Hearts to do the same with her's. Once they got to Ridead Lyra pretty much took control of the meeting there. Her and Lemon Hearts sent their generals and their grand princes up to the border with the Equine Empire to allegedly inspect some fence."

Luna asked, "Oh and what did they do when they were up near their border with my country?"

Colgate continued, "Well before they left I saw Lyra talking to the officers to kill the grand princes up at the border and blame Luna's forces for it. That is exactly what they did. They spent three weeks up there doing basically nothing except talk about how things would be if they ran their countries and graze."

Brevity asked, "So have they killed the grand princes yet?"

Colgate replied, "Yes, they did less than an hour ago. The grand princes decided it was time to head home. The changeling officers covered them in ooze and the dark Alicorn officers fried them to death with energy. It is my belief that Lyra put them up to killing the grand princes. Lyra has become bloodthirsty and is threatening Lemon Hearts with a hostile takeover if she doesn't do exactly what she says. My guess is that once the officers get home, they will notify both Lyra and Lemon Hearts and both nations will declare war on the Equine Empire."

Fluttershy asked, "What does that have to do with Equestria and Alicorn Island?"

Luna interrupted, "Fluttershy, back when all of us were allies we signed a treaty that if one nation was attacked, it would be as though all of us were attacked and we would go to war. If this happens, each nation needs to be ready to go to war to aid the nation that was attacked."

General Dark Night raised his hoof and asked, "Colgate, when do you want Scootaloo, General Lightning Storm and myself to start preparing our forces for war?"

Colgate replied, "Tomorrow morning immediately after breakfast. Luckily we won't have any dragons or dark goddesses to face up against but still, I want us to be prepared for the war of our lifetimes."

Brevity asked, "Colgate, when will be going home and when will we need to start preparing our forces for the upcoming war?"

Colgate replied, "Immediately after this meeting. Regarding when you should start preparing your forces, I would say tomorrow morning. Luna, you might want to make plans on relocating your capitol if Saddle Arabian forces do indeed cross your border. Maredrid is dangerously close to that border."

Luna threw her hooves up in the air and asked, "Where am I supposed to relocate my capitol to?"

Colgate replied, "That is up to you but I would suggest Marescow. There are a couple of mountain ranges that separate it from the border and conditions there are colder than what Saddle Arabian forces can handle from October through late April. Now let's get going."

Luna replied, "Ok, Marescow it will be, only if it is necessary."

Colgate, Fluttershy, Rainbow, Brevity and Luna gathered around Colgate as she cast the necessary spells to take the two leaders back home. In what was thirty minutes Colgate, Fluttershy and Rainbow took the leaders home and returned to Ponyville. It was still a few hours before supper so Colgate thought she would watch over what was going on in Ridead. She believed that the officers over there would arrive home and notify their leaders before supper time, so she would have plenty of time to keep an eye on things.

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."
