Interviewing Mr. Disc - CrackedInkWell

The art teacher, Mr. Disc is called in to be interviewed by a CIA agent over the disappearance of a missing student at Canterlot High.

  • ...

15: The Assembly.

Beep! “Attention students and faculty,” Luna’s voice over the intercom said at the start of third period. “Due to some unforeseen circumstance, all classes for third to fourth period have been canceled for today. Everyone, students and staff of Canterlot High, please report to the auditorium for an emergency assembly. I repeat: all students and staff report to the auditorium for an emergency assembly, thank you.”

As expected, my third-period class (as I imagine the rest of the school) expressed total confusion at the sudden announcement.

“Come on, you all heard her,” I told them, “Get your stuff and let’s head out.”

“Why? What’s going on?” one of my students asked as she and the rest of the class started to get up from their seats.

“Yeah,” said another student grabbing his books: “Did something happen?”

“Just do as the Vice Principle says,” I said as I walked over and opened the door. “So come on, let’s go all of you.”

My class did make their way into the halls along with the rest of the school. Students and teachers alike were completely bewildered at this sudden change of schedule. I guess watching them trying to figure out what’s going on gives me some pleasant entertainment from this morn’s events.

My alternative ego is gone.

Don’t ask me how the last time I’ve seen him was that he was laying on the couch like a house cat getting ready to fall asleep, and by morning, gone. Of course, I searched everywhere that I could think of. I even try to find him by radar but came up with nothing. I even searched the internet for any sign of him, but once again, he’s nowhere to be found.

I mean, I understand that he couldn’t be kept cooped up in one place for a while, but now I’m starting to get worried as to where he could have gone to. Plus, knowing me, if or when I do something like this, at least I would leave a calling card behind to show to the world that this is my work. I would think he would turn up again sometime today.

At least, I hope he would.

“Disc?” I was pulled out of my thoughts to find Ms. Cherilee there.

“Uh, what?”

“Do you know what this is about?” she asked, “I’ve been asking everyone else and nobody seems to have a clue what this is all about. Do you have any idea what’s going on?”

“I think I might have a guess,” I said, “But I don’t think I’m too certain about it though.”

“What do you mean?”

“It’s a little hard to explain, but let’s just say that I’ve heard that things are going to get interesting from here on out.”

She frowned, “Would you mind speak plain English instead of riddles?”

“Hmm… Nope,” I smirked.

Soon enough, the school was crammed into the auditorium like an overstuffed can of sardines. For some who aren’t in the rows of chairs, we stood in the aisles, but all of us were looking towards the stage. There on stage where both of the principles, Sunset Shimmer, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and Applejack.

Once it was made sure that everyone was there, Celestia took hold of the mic, “May I have your attention please everyone?” The auditorium quiets down once her voice was heard. “I know all of you are wondering what this is all about and why we’ve decided to suddenly cancel a couple of classes. Perhaps it’s best that it’s best if I get straight to the point. No doubt nearly all of you already know about the strange things that have been happening at this school recently.”

Many of the school nodded in agreement.

“And no doubt too that twice this year we almost came close to complete disaster. Yet I’m here to inform you all, as well as educate, students and staff alike, to prevent another disaster that may not happen here at the school, but all over the country as well.”

There were gasps and harsh whispers from all around, but Celestia continued: “Please, do not worry; we believe that the best way to combat this is through what we do best, and that is through education.”

“Educating us of what?” one of the teachers asked aloud.

“I will turn to Sunset Shimmer to explain it,” Celestia took the mic over to Ms. Shimmer in which she grabbed it.

“Everyone, I know this going to sound completely crazy for some of you. In fact, you might not even believe it. I don’t blame you, but it’s the truth. Especially if I told you that magic exists now.”

The room went quiet for a while.

“No, really,” Sunset said, “There is magic in this world and I can prove it. Watch,” She held the microphone out at arm’s length before she dropped it. But before it hit the stage floor, we saw the fireflies around Simmer’s head and the mic was stopped in the air, being wrapped in a golden light.

There was shock and awes in the crowd. We saw the mic being lifted back up and into Sunset’s hands. “That’s not all, Rainbow if you do the honors?”

“Sure thing!” she said, and with that, she started running to the front of the stage before jumping right off of it, before anyone could catch her, she sprouted those wings from last night and flew right over the crowd.

There were whoa’s, and cool’s, and my personal favorite “Holy Hell!” that the students and staff were exclaiming when she flew right over their heads. Rainbow flew around like a lost pigeon before returning to the stage where, once she touched the ground, her wings vanished.

The school cheered at Rainbow’s performance, and as expected, she took a bow.

“There’s also something else we need to demonstrate to all of you,” Sunset said as she signaled a couple of guys pushing one of those carnival things where you hit a weight to right the bell at the top, except there’s seem to be a lack of a sledgehammer.

“Finally, Applejack is going to do something that is deemed impossible, she going to use her leg to kick a ten-pound weight to hit that bell. Ready AJ?”

“Ready,” the farm girl replied back as she went up to it, turned around to face the school, and lifts up a foot before stomping on the tiny seesaw. The weight not only shot up to the top, not only rang the bell loudly, but it broke it!

“Whoa! Head’s up!” Applejack cried out when both the weight and the bell disappeared for a moment when it went up through the curtains above. Sunset’s used her magic to catch both before either made a few holes in the wooden floor.

“Phew,” Sunset commented as she gently laid the pieces on the ground. “So, with that out of the way, it’s time to really drop the bombshell here… Everyone in this room has one or a different variation of what all you have just seen.”

There was a solid pause before the entire auditorium erupted with a thousand hands asking a million questions.

Author's Note:

Phew! Well, I'm not sure how this turned out, but, here you go.

I want to go on a bit longer, but since I'm somewhat tired, I think I should stop here.

Besides, I've just got a brilliant idea in how to explore Mr. Disc's character, and yes, it has something to do with Discord gone missing. I won't say much, but I can tell you is that Discord hasn't left at all, he's still there, but not where some of you expect him to be.
