S3E07: Two Sisters In Two Worlds

Author's Note:

Luna begins to have dreams about her sister, and realizes that there is more to herself than she knows.

"Luna..." A familiar voice called.

Luna looked around the white landscape. "Sister?! Could it be?" She asked aloud.

Celestia's faint figure approached Luna. "Little sister." She greeted with a smile.

"Sister! what art thou doing hither?" Luna asked, hugging Celestia. "Thou're dead! We remember seeing thy corse!"

"You are right about that." Celestia said. "I am dead." Celestia looked Luna dead in the eyes. "But, remember, I'm still alive inside you."

"What doth thou cullionly?" Luna asked, tilting her head.

Celestia looked up. "We don't have time. Goodbye, sister! Keep them safe!"

"Sister!" Luna called as everything faded.

Luna snapped awake. Her eyes were locked dead onto Scootaloo, who was right in front of her.

"Um...it's your turn to watch." She said with an awkward smile.

Luna took a deep sigh and got up. "Of course. Prithee, doth go back to bed, young child. Thou need thy sleep."

Scootaloo nodded and went back to her bunk so that she could sleep.


Luna trotted to the front of the train. At the engine, Rainbow was standing guard, her hoofgun ready. "Thou're dismissed."

Rainbow smiled and got up, stretching. She put away her hoofgun and began to trot to the cabins. "Goodnight, Luna."

"May thy dreams be sweet and safe." Luna called. She sat down as Rainbow left the engine and pondered. Things for her have been very strange lately. She was having weird dreams, and she hasn't been able to dreamwalk since...that day. The day Canterlot fell. Something has been bothering her, and she couldn't do the things she normally has been able to do. She looked up at the moon. "Our wonderful moon. Ever since our sister passed aroint, the sun and moon rose and fell on their own. Sometimes, we feel as though chaos itself hath taken control of Equestria." Luna looked down. "Our sister, though. We saw her in our dream. She's been in our dreams, we can feel it. We can still feel her presence, yea anon. Thither's something inside of us. We don't understand." She looked back up at the moon. "Oh, dear sister. Prithee, guide us in the right direction. We art lost."

Luna's ears perked as a noise caught her attention. The sound was a snapping twig, which came from outside. Luna drew her weapon and opened the train door, peeking out.

"Who goes thither?" She called. There was no answer. She stepped down from the train and looked around.

"Bewray thyself!" She called again. Luna's eyes locked onto the masked figure as he emerged a bush.

"Thou..." Luna began. "Thou wast the one from Appleloosa!" Her eyes narrowed. "Who art thou?"

The figure did not speak. Instead, he pulled out a bag and laid it before her.

"What doth thou endue me?" Luna asked, looking down at it. She looked back at the figure, only to find he was gone. "That sneaky daw." Luna mumbled as she picked up the bag and took it inside the train.

She laid it down on the floor and opened it. She gasped as she saw the contents inside.

Luna waited until the next morning. When the other ponies awoke, Luna called them up to the engine to show them what she had. The ponies were in shock at the sight that beheld them.

Personal belongings were laid out, one item belonging to a pony. Luna was holding a picture of her and Celestia.

Twilight picked up her old doll, Mr. Smartypants. "Where did you get this?" She asked.

Rainbow picked up her Daring Do book. "I left this at Canterlot!"

Applejack picked up her old rope. "Who would've thought ah'd see this ol' thing again?"

Scootaloo picked up a purple helmet. "This is my old helmet! How did it get here?"

"Whose are these?" Twilight asked, picking up two masks.

"Is one red, and the other green with feathers?" Secret asked.

"I'm guessing they belong to Secret." Twilight said, handing him the masks.

Spitfire trotted over and picked up a small box quickly, so that nopony would notice. Luna did notice, however.

"What is the box for?" The night princess asked.

Spitfire looked away. "It's nothing."

Luna gave Spitfire a weird look before turning back to the others. "Anon, to answer all of thy questions." Luna held her head up high. "The strange pony from Appleloosa came to us last night.Tthey left us items, then simply vanished. We did not get a good look at them. Our apologies."

The ponies looked at each other in confusion.

Luna yawned. She felt odd by the sudden urge to yawn. It was unlike herself. "We think we shall find our slumber." Luna said, heading back to the sleeping cabin. She climbed into her bed and fell asleep fairly quick.

"I see that you've found something important to you." Celestia said to Luna as she walked up behind the mare. They were in the white dream room again.

"How did thou wot, sister?" Luna asked, turning to her.

"You still don't understand, do you?" Celestia asked, sitting down. "It's been right in front of you the whole time."

"What art thou saying, sister?" Luna asked, confused.

"There is only one word to describe it." Celestia told her little sister. "Just one word. You may remember it, you may not. It will describe me. It will describe the strange thing that's been bothering me. It will even explain the mysterious stallion that you've been seeing lately."

"What is the word?!" Luna begged. "Sister, prithee don't speak in riddles like this! 'Tis us, thy sister! Thou can betoken us aught!"

Celestia smiled warmly. "Very well." She leaned in close. "The word is Caelum."

Luna snapped awake and screamed as she fell off the bed.

Twilight galloped into the cabin. "Are you okay, Luna?!" Twilight asked. Luna did not answer, as she stared at the ceiling in shock.
