Chapter 20: Dalek Ju-jitsu

Chapter 20: Dalek Jujitsu.

Zek’s half of the dalek army had encountered a problem. A terrible storm had come over the entire dalek army. Thunder and lightning which on occasion would hit one of the daleks, a terrible fog that made navigation impossible, and flooding that slowed their movement to a halt.

Two daleks listened to their leader Zek come up with a plan and explain it to Caan.

‘”I believe that the Celestia has ordered the pegasi to create this storm.“ Said Zek. “The only solution is to destroy the weather factory where the weather is made. Caan I order you to go to the factory and destroy it.”

Caan thought about it a moment.

“No.” Said Caan.

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY NO!” said Zek angrily.

“No means no.” said Caan being stubbornly.

“I AM YOUR LEADER YOU WILL OBEY ME!” Said Zek.

“I am the leader of the Cult of Skaro.” Said Caan. “ I outrank you.”

“YOU ARE THE ONLY MEMBER OF THE CULT! AND BESIDES THIS IS MY MISSION. YOU MUST DO AS I SAY!”

Caan considered this.

“No.”

Zek almost lost it. He was so angry. Caan had been like this the whole invasion. Zek couldn’t get him do anything that he didn’t want to do. Caan was the only one who could completely control temporal shifts. The other daleks could use temporal shifts, but it was just for emergencies. It would bring them somewhere randomly in time and space. Caan could control where and when the shifts would bring him. Therefor he was the only one who could get to the factory through the storm.

Zek was about to give up and just wait for the storm to pass, if it ever did, when he remembered something that happened at Fluttershy’s cottage.

***

“Now Angel you need to eat your food.” Said Fluttershy. “It’s not good to skip meals.”

Angel the rabbit refused to eat the salad. He just sat there being stubborn.

“Pretty please Angel. With a cherry on top?” Said Fluttershy.

Angel hesitated for a second and then reluctantly started to eat his salad.

“How did you do that?” asked Zek.

“I said please.” Explained Fluttershy.

“And this word made her obey you?”

“Well no not exactly…” said Fluttershy.

“An interesting power.” Said Zek “To make someone do something they don’t want to do. I will remember this.”

“No problem.” Said Fluttershy blushing.
***

Could it work?

“Caan… will you destroy the weather factory… please… with sugary fruits on top?” Zek felt silly saying this.

“Oh if you say it like that I’ll be happy to.” Said Caan. “EMERGENY TEMPERAL SHIFT.” Caan disappeared in a flash of light.
Wow it actually worked.

“We’ll be on our way soon.” Said Zek to the other daleks. “Caan has gone to destroy the weather factory.”

The two daleks looked at each other.

“We came here to give Caan’s death ray back.” Said the first dalek.

“He told us to repair it.” Said the second.

“So are you saying… he went to destroy the weather factory unarmed?”
The two nameless Daleks nodded.

“Oh.” Said Zek. “Well that’s just great.”

The workers at the weather factory where busy at work. They were working over time to keep up with the demand of the storm.

“Keep working.” Said the Factory Director, a blond pegasus with red eyes. “We have to keep the daleks at bay!”

“What would we do with the foals that just came in for the rainbows?” Asked a dark Pegasus.

“Put them in the storage closet for now. We can’t deal with them right now.” Said the Director.

There was a knock on the door. Knock knock knock.

“Who in Equestria could that be at a time like this? You there go answer it.”

“Yes sir.” Said the dark pegasus.

Knock knock

“I’m coming. hold on.” Said the dark pegasus. He opened the door.
“What do you wan—“ the pegasus was grabbed by a golden dalek's manipulator arm.

“Help we’re under attack! AHHHHH” the pegisus started to shrivel up as if the liquids where being drained from his body.

Once he was dead Caan dropped his shriveled corpse to the ground.
The rest of the factory workers stared at the dalek in shock.

“Knock knock. Ha ha ha Who’s there? ha ha ” Caan crackled as he floated about an inch about the cloud floor.

“Freeze or we’ll be forced to use force.” Said the Director.

“Oh no what should I do?” Said Caan sarcastically. “Oh I know I’ll do this. He tried to fire his death ray at a pegasus.”
...

Nothing happened.
The pegasi stared at Caan.
...

“Ha ha ah… This is awkward. It seems that I came with no weapons. But do not fear I still have my shields.” Caan tried to turn on his shields. Caan’s armor sparked, but his shields did not engage.

“Oh yeah I forgot those where broken too. Ha. Well that’s fine. This is more interesting anyway. It gives you guys a handicap. He raised his manipulator arm getting ready to defend himself. “Bring it.”

The pegasi looked at the dalek for a second and then burst into laughter.

“You’re gonna beat us? With no weapons? That’s a good one!”

“What’s that? A plunger?”

“What are you gonna do plunger us to death?”

“Oh I’m so scared. Don’t let the plunger get me! Ha ha ha”

“This is the weather factory we are prepared for attacks.” The pegasi began to pull out their weaponry. The lightning cannon, the hurricane generators and the freeze rays.

“We are ready for an army.” Said the Director. “One unarmed dalek should hardly be a problem.
Caan was silent.

“Alright then men… Get him.” Ordered the director confidently.
***

Two nameless daleks where out in the rain.

“EVER NOTICE THAT OUR LEADERS ON THIS MISSION ARE A LITTLE ODD?” Said the first dalek.

“DO NOT QUESTION OUR LEADERS.” Said the second.

“I AM NOT I AM JUST NOTICING THEIR… UNIQUENESS...” Said the first

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN?” said the second.

“CAAN IS INSANE AND PRONE TO LAUGHTER.” Said the first

“THAT IS ONLY BECAUSE HE WENT TO THE TIME WAR. IF YOU COULD SEE ALL OF TIME YOU WOULD BE INSANE AS WELL.” Said the second Dalek.

“IT IS STILL CREEPY. OK BUT HOW ABOUT DALEK ZEK? Said the first dalek.

WHAT OF HIM? HE IS BRILLANT.” Said the second.

“HIS VOICE IS WEIRD. WHEN HE IS GIVING ORDERS OR ADDRESSING HIS SUPERIORS HIS VOICE IS NORMAL, BUT WHEN TALKING IT IS SOFT.” Said the first. "Like this."

“ARE YOU SUGGESTING A SPEECH IMPEDIMENT?” Said the second.

“POSSIBLY. ALSO HE IS KNOW TO LET HIS ENEMIES ESCAPE, THE RUMOR IS THAT HE IS DIVERGENT.” Said the first.

“THOSE ARE JUST RUMORS” said the second dalek.

“LEZ IS THE WORST. HE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO KILL DALEKS THAT FAIL HIM. I ALSO HEARD THAT HE SACRIFICED HIS ENTIRE CREW WHE—“

“Are you speaking about your leaders behind our backs?” Said Zek.

The daleks felt themselves go cold.

“You know that according to dalek protocol you should be exterminated?” Said Zek.
The two daleks nodded.

“Well do not do it again.” Said Zek moving away. The two daleks waited until Zek was out of earshot.

“YOU MIGHT BE ON TO SOMETHING.” Said the second dalek. “I HAVE NEVER SEEN A LEADER IGNORE PROTOCOL BEFORE….”
***

“This is dalek Caan reporting.” Said Caan over the radio.

“Good to hear from you. You left without your weapon. Come collect it before you take the factory.”

“I have already taken over the factory.”

“You… you took it without a weapon?” Zek said shocked.

“Yes. ha ha ah.” Said Caan.
Caan was on top of a pile of bodies. Some of them had their necks or spines broken. Some had been strangled, others had the liquids drained from their bodies. There where burn marks from where the lightning cannons had hit. Caan himself was covered in blood.

"H-how did you do that without a single weapon?”

“It was easy. After I killed half of them the rest ran away.” Said Caan. “Don’t tell me you haven’t learned any ‘Dalek Jujitsu’?”
Zek had never even heard of ‘Dalek Jujitsu’ and was pretty sure it didn’t exist. But he didn’t question it.

“Well… hold your position, they may come back.” Said Zek. “Please”

“Ok.” Said Caan.

Zek made a mental note not to get on Caan’s bad side.

The little fillies where locked in the closet. They where scared for their life. they had no idea what was happening outside all they knew was that they had heard the commotion outside. Grown colts screaming bones being broken, the sound of thunder. Finally the noise died down.

“Is it over?” Said the orange one.

“How should I know?” said white one.

“I knew I should have studied harder for the flight test.” Said the pink one.

Suddenly there was the sound of the door opening. The little fillies huddled together in the corner.

The door opened.

“Hi there little fillies.” Said the golden trashcan.

The fillies stared at the trashcan.

“W-who are you?” asked the orange filly.

“Who me? I’m the devil.” Said the golden trashcan letting out an evil crackle.

The fillies started to cry.

“Ha ha. Just kidding. Just kidding. My name is Caan.”

The fillies kept crying.

“Please, stop that. Oh I know. Here are some lollipops.” Caan pulled some lollipops out seemingly out of nowhere. The three fillies stopped crying.

“T-thank you mister Caan.” Said the pink one.

“No problem. Said Caan. “Now fly along. Find your parents and tell them how well you did on your flight test.”

“But we failed…”

“They won’t know that. Now get on get out of here.”

The fillies didn’t need to be told twice. They flew out of the closet. They didn’t even stop when they saw the pile of dead pegasi from the factory…
