2: Principal Cadence?

I think I was having one of those psychotic episodes again. That’s what’s gotta be right? As of now, I’m in a solid pink bubble, floating in the air, being lead by a white unicorn with little horses in armor. Perhaps I should keep this in mind for a painting sometime.

“Can’t you just make this thing a little bit bigger?” I asked. The bubble I’m trapped in is only big enough for me to be in the fetal position. And considering that I have a tail now, it makes things a little bit interesting.

The unicorn didn’t say anything, I don’t know why, but it seemed to be mad at me for some reason. Then again… Something’s up with these other guards too. Except for my holder, the rest of them are keeping their distance from me. I wonder why.

Minutes went by, down crystallized hallways that looks like something out of a children’s cartoon, the unicorn leads us to a pair of doors. And behind these doors, were more of these… What are they anyway? They’re too short to be horses, so… ponies perhaps? (I really need to look up on that when I get the chance to get out of my hallucination.)

The room we entered was huge, probably two or three times larger than the gym at the school. All around me were ponies of every shape and color imaginable. Not just those made out of living crystal, but there were others who were like the unicorn. Animal-like, well, kinda. There were unicorns, pegasuses (or is it pegasi?), and “normal” ponies all around. While going towards the other end of the room, I’ve got a good look at them. Their manes were styled to look human. Heck, some of them were wearing clothes! But I noticed something odd as well, their eyes. They were bigger and have irises. And horses (or ponies) don’t have irises.

Along the way up, nearly, if not all took several steps back away from me. Perhaps it’s my appearance or something, I would too if I saw a creature that’s jumbled up.

At the very end of the room was a throne that was made out of, no surprise, crystal. And on this throne was a creature that I had never seen before in any mythology book. The creature was pink; it had wings like a pegasus and a horn of a unicorn. And on its head was a tiny golden crown.

“Discord?” The thing asked in a feminine voice. “What are you doing here?”

That voice. It sounds somehow, familiar, but why?

“A guard found him in the mirror room.” The unicorn stated.

She looked back up at me once more and said, “You do know that nopony is allowed in there right? Even to you. So why were you there?”

“I just fell through,” I told her.

“Did you get lost again?”

“Well…” seeing that there’s really no point in lying, I told her, “yes, yes I am. So where am I?”

“The Crystal Empire. In the palace.” She deadpanned. “And besides, I thought Celestia sent you to the Bahamares.”

I let out a chuckle. “Th-The what?”

“The Bahamares. You know, islands off the Coast of Mexicolt.”

Laughter escaped my new mouth. “Ba-Bahamares! Mexicolt! Ha-ha-ha...” I know I should be polite, but to me it was hilarious. Both she and the unicorn’s eyes harden.

“Discord. I’m being serious.”

“Cadence, I think we-”

I stopped laughing when I heard that name, “Wait! What did you say your name was?”

“Cadence?” She said. I learned in as far as this bubble would let me get a closer look at her. The hairstyle, the pink coat, wearing the golden shoes, she is polite yet she has a strong personality…

“Principal Cadence? Is that you?” I asked.

“Principal?” She asked.

“Yeah, you're that adopted niece of Principal Celestia.”

Her eyes widen, “Court is adjourned!” she declared loudly. I heard moans and grunts of disappointments behind me. After being shooed away, Cadence in pony form turned to the unicorn.

“Shining, you can release him now.”

Immediately, the bubble popped and I was unceremoniously dropped to the floor.

“Ow! Could you at least warn me next time?”

“Tell me, Discord-”

“Okay, stop it! Stop calling me Discord. You can just call me Mr. Disc.”

“Um, alright, Mr. Disc, do you know anything about a place called Canterlot High?”

“You mean the place I work at? Of course, I do.”

“Has anything unusual happened there?”

“Other than this hallucination? Well, Luna told me about the time that a student named Sunset turned into a demon at a dance. And then there was that one time with the sirens. And wait,” I pointed at the unicorn. “She said your name is Shining isn’t it?”


“Oh! Now I recognize you! Your that guy that Cadence married a while ago. Nice to meet ya finally.” I lifted my bird claw to shake his hand, well, hoof to shake. He just stared at it. Maybe they don’t do handshakes in this hallucination or something.

“So, what do you do? I mean, your job?” Cadence questioned.

“I’m an art teacher.”

“And do you know somepony there by the name of Fluttershy?”

After overcoming my chuckles at that weird way of her saying ‘somebody’ I answered. “Of course I know Fluttershy. She’s the one that got me my job back. A nice student in my book.”

The pony versions of Cadence and Shining talked quietly to each other for a minute, every now and then, Shining would look back at me. Then, they turned back toward me.

“We’ll take the benefit of a doubt and say that we believe you. Shining, do me a favor and try contacting the princesses and your sister about this.”

“Of course dear. I’ll be right back,” and with that, Shining trotted out of the room.

“Princesses?” I asked.

“Yes. Here there are four princesses, in your world, they’re known as Principal Celestia and Luna. Here, however, it’s Princess Celestia and Luna.”

I blinked, since when did those two have got that kind of upgrade?
