  • ...

Chapter one

1000 years later.
One week after Discords return and banishment, a portion of his leftover magic hits a certain statute in the Canterlot royal garden.

Princess Celestia is sitting on her throne before feeling a string surge of magic. Not wanting to take any chances, she grabs a letter.

"Dear Twilight, I need you and your friends come to Canterlot on the next train." Celestia said out loud while writing. After that, she used her magic to teleport it to Spike.

Meanwhile in Ponyville

Walking down the road was Twilight Sparkle, personal protege of Princess Celestia. She was dressed in work pants, and a lab coat. She was in her way to go collect her friends. First she was going to go find Rainbow Dash. She is sure to be napping on one of these clouds, Twilight thought. Suddenly a flash of colors appear in front of Twilight.

"Aaahhh!!" Twilight screamed.

"Hey Twilight what's up." Rainbow dash asked in her tomboyish voice. She was dressed in a sports top and sport leggings.

"Rainbow dash I have been looking all over Ponyville for you." Twilight replied.

"Oh. Why?" She asked again.

"Princess Celestia sent me a letter that we are needed in Canterlot." Twilight told Rainbow Dash

"Alright let's go." Rainbow dash shouted flying up in the air.

"We are going on the train so Come on. The princess paid for it already." Twilight said walking away. "The others are already there." She adds.

Then Twilight horn shined a pink color and she teleported herself and Rainbow Dash to the train station. At the station was Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Applejack.

Rarity was dressed in a white shirt with diamonds on her shoulder, with a purple skirt matching her hair. Fluttershy was wearing a shirt with several picture of animals and plant, with a yellow skirt with 3 butterflies. Pinkie Pie was wearing a shirt and apron, with a pink skirt that has 3 balloons on them. Applejack was wearing a Stetson hat with a striped shirt with work jeans.

"Hey Twilight, Rainbow Dash, you got here just in time." Pinkie Pie said excitedly.

"Why yes darling the train will arrive any minute now." Rarity added.

"Yeah let go." Rainbow Dash shouted.

"Well we can't keep the Princess waiting lets go." Twilight said as the train arrived. "Oh what a coincidence." She added.

"Yeah, yeah let's go." Rainbow dash said entering the train cart.

(Sorry I just had to do this. I wanted to get in to write the good stuff.)
"Aahh what a nap." Rainbow Dash yawned as she woke up from her nap.

"Come on Rainbow we arrived. You woke up just in time." Applejack said.

"Oh yeah. Well let get going." Rainbow Dash said suddenly jumping up before hitting her head on the trains roof.

"Ow that hurt. I mean that didn't hurt." Rainbow Dash said rubbing her head.

"Hahahaha." Applejack laughed. "Come on the others are waiting outside." She added as she walk out of the cabin. Rainbow Dash followed her grumbling something Applejack couldn't hear.

Outside were several royal guards of the solar guard division.

"Ma'am, we are here to escort you all to the princess." The lead unicorn guard said.

"Well okay, but why." Twilight asked.

"Princesses orders." He just simply said.

"Well come all girls." Twilight said to her friends taking the lead.

"Why look how beautiful Canterlot is." Rarity said excitedly. "I might be able to finds some inspiration for my next clothing line. Wouldn't that be fun, Rainbow Dash."

"Only you would find that fun." Rainbow Dash said bored.

"Humph." Rarity replied sticking her nose up in the air.

Soon they reached the castle entrance, at which the doors opened up to let them in. When they walked in they were taken to the castle library. When they entered the library, they saw princess Celestia reading a book.

"Princess!" Twilight shouted running up to her.

"What happened princess." Twilight asked.

"My most faithful student. I have sensed chaos magic." Princess Celestia said.

"What? Didn't we already take care of Discord." Applejack asked.

"Yeah didn't we hit him with the elements of harmony." Rainbow Dash asked.

"Yes you did, but I fear that this a portion of his leftover magic hit something in Canterlot, before I remembered a something." Celestia replied.

"What did you remember. That is if you don't mind." Fluttershy asked behind her hair. Celestia just gave her a motherly sad smile.

"I remembered him." Princess Celetia asked.

"Uhh. Who?" Rainbow dash asked.

"Everypony remembers him differently. The griffons as the god of war. The thestrals as the great vanquishers, and to ponykind, a hero and legend." Princess Celestia said tearfully. "But I remember him for who he was." Tears were now visibly in her eyes. The main six looked shocked, having never seen their leader cry.

"Who is he." Twilight asked.

"You should know Twilight. After all, you studied Nightmare moons legend. He defeated her, but at a price. He is equestria's greatest general. He reformed the army. He is Atticus Scipio." Princess Celestia said.
