Please don't forget me - Solstice87

Sonata and Aria cope with Adagio's receding memory after the battle with the Rainbooms.

  • ...

Almost gone

A month after the original incident

"Dagi...Dagi.. Dagi! Wake up!....please...."Sonata stuttered to a halt as she watched Adagio lay on the couch, not moving. For the past few weeks, Sonata and Aria had tried to keep Adagio entertained and engaged for 24 hours in a row.

Nothing had worked so far.

Rainboom concert? Nope. Work? Not even close. School? Anything that could be categorized as fun? Zilch.

Adagio turned over on the couch, and stared up at sonata. "Who are you?" she muttered sleepily.

Sonata gasped, tears filling up her eyes. From her position in the doorway to the kitchen, Aria's eyes opened a fraction of an inch wider than normal.

"Dagi... I'm your sister. I- I'm Sonata Dusk..... I- I- " Sonata burst into tears, screaming, "I'M YOUR SISTER! CALL ME STUPID, CALL ME AN IMBECILE, CALL ME ANYTHING THAT WOULD LET ME KNOW YOU ARE STILL YOU!"

"Sorry. Can't help you there. I don't know who your sister is, but I hope you find her. Good luck," Adagio said with a sneer. "Oh, yeah, and what are you doing in my house? Get out before I call the police."

Aria sadly looked at Adagio, then turned to Sonata. "Let's go, Sonata. She obviously wants to be alone."

Sonata looked at her sister with disbelief. "You're giving up on her?" She spit out, "Well. You might be so quick to give up on her, but I won't. I love you, Dagi!" She said, turning to Adagio. "Come on! You can't forget so easily, can you?" Sonata flung herself onto Adagio and held tight." I won't stand for it!

"Get off me!" Adagio sneered, throwing Sonata off her. Sonata stood up slowly and looked at Adagio, who had no pity in her eyes.

Sonata fell to the floor sobbing. Aria walked over to her, helped her stand, and walked her out of the room, throwing one last death glare to Adagio as she walked out of the room with Sonata in tow.

"And good riddance." Adagio hmmphed, then lay back down on the couch to continue sleeping.

The Rainboom's Practice Room

Sonata and Aria burst through the doors of the Rainboom's practice room, panting and dirty from the tomatoes that students had thrown.
The Rainbooms stopped playing and stared at the invaders with expressions of contempt.

"What in the hay are y'all doin' here?" Applejack said with a death glare.

"Yeah!" Rainbow Dash agreed. "We're doing something here! Aren't you all defeated? Crawl back to the little hole you came from." She sneered.

"Please..." Sonata gasped. "Just listen to us for a second. Our sister is dying. We need to keep her occupied for a day, but nothing has worked so far. She.. She even... forgot..."

"That's enough Sonata. I'll take it from here." Aria stepped up. "No matter what you might believe, we actually care about each other. So you better help us, because we don't want to see our sister dead and gone. As the winners of the war, you guys have an obligation to help us."

"She technically is right, darlings," Rarity said, looking around the room. "I am the best at history here-"

"All ya do is memorize outfits fram that era," Applejack grumbled.

"AHEM. Anyway. Most of the winners of wars help rebuild the loser's country, or take it over for themselves. So. We'll help you on one condition, darlings."

"Rarity!" Rainbow yelled.

Aria took a deep breath. "And that is?"

"How is this supposed to help Adagio?" Fluttershy asked.

"With six of you, it should be easy for everyone to pass her off and keep her occupied. So the order is: Sonata, Rarity, Fluttershy, Sunset, Pinkie, Applejack, Rainbow, and then for the finale, me." Aria answered She looked through the window at Adagio eating lunch. "Should be easy. I hope."

Sonata gulped. "Okay... I guess it's my turn...."

Sonata walked into the house with everyone not far behind.

Author's Note:

So, um... this chapter took longer than usual. I had typed the whole chapter, fixed grammer, dealt with some cover art that I didn't ask permission to use(I'm a horrible person) and when I finished I logged off. Didn't save the chapter.:raritycry: Oh well. The next few chapters will be from everybody's point of view of what they did with Adagio.
Also: you'll find out what Aria, Sonata, and Adagio have to do at the end of the story. Happy reading!

You should make stories loonger... not just an short retelling of the events...

5576237 My kind of headcanon is that Aria didn't want to worry Sonata with what was going on.

5587556 Yeah, I know. I'm just better with short stories, and I kind of don't want to combine all the chapters into one. Thanks for the criticism!

Sounds like adagio has advanced dementia. I have it and it's not fun at all. You've done a good job of depicting it here in this story

I'm sorry for your advanced demetia! I actually had no idea what it was until you mentioned it and I looked it up. i'M glad you like the story! It's about to get really crazy though.

5625154 as I said you've done a great job depicting it. Well done

I'm curious.....:duck:

5587585 Is this dead bro, it can't be dead dude!

they tell her questions, (since she lost her memory), and tell her about the battle of the bands , how they were banished to the human world..

Seems interesting so far!
