Lunaverse: Galaxy Rangers - The Rangers Nevermore?
Epilogue
by Rixizu

Twilight Sparkle trotted through town surveying all the damage in Ponyville. She couldn’t see an undamaged home anywhere due to Corvus’s wild attacks. At best, some homes just had a few holes through them, at worst they were completely burned down. Twilight could see ponies were getting back to their homes, cleaning, or just trying to get their lives back in order. Nopony paid Twilight too much attention too focused on their tasks.

Twilight’s ears drooped. It was worse than she feared. Holding back her tears was impossible.

Twilight eventually found herself at a bridge. She stared at the water for a long while. She had no idea what she would do now or how she would ever forgive herself. She wondered if Corona would come back for her and make Twilight hers again.

Twilight got up on the railing. Maybe it would be better this way. Easier perhaps. At least the pain would end.

Twilight jumped when she heard a pony scream. She turned around and saw a white unicorn with a purple mane freaking out.

“Dear, your mane!” The unicorn proclaimed dramatically. Twilight looked at her confused. Sure, her mane was messy after everything, but... Twilight suddenly felt herself being pulled by a blue aura.

“This cannot do. There is no way we can have you going around looking like that!” The unicorn said. “We are going to have to get you fixed up in a jiffy!”

Twilight tried to stop herself being pulled by holding on to the railing with all her strength, but she was too weak and exhausted. She soon found herself being carried by this strange unicorn.

---

Twilight was seated on a chair at what looked like a boutique. She was now all cleaned up and her mane was back in pristine condition. Her host, who called herself Rarity, served her some tea. It was good and tasted of apple.

Rarity sat down and got herself comfortable. She placed the tea kettle on a nearby coffee table. “Now Darling, would you like to talk about it? I know for a fact you were doing more than admiring the water.”

Twilight looked away and stay silent.

“I know it can be tough.” Rarity said kindly. “But things are never hopeless.”

Twilight gave a bitter laugh. “You saw what happened to Ponyville. It’s my fault!”

Rarity stayed silent for a few moments. “Dear, do you really believe that? Isn’t somepony else to blame for what happened?”

“It doesn’t matter!” Twilight almost yelled. “I’m the one that did it! Monster or not!”

Twilight scowled. “That thing...she enjoyed hurting ponies and destroying everything around her. What if that’s me? Only the dark part of me ready to get out?”

“Do you feel guilty over what happened?” Rarity asked.

"Of course I do!" Twilight stood up.

“Then you aren’t that monster.” Rarity gave a soft smile.

“What?” Twilight asked baffled.

“That creature enjoyed destroying everything without remorse, but you’re different. You feel guilt and shame over what happened.” Rarity explained. “That proves that you are something different. You have a heart darling.”

"It doesn't matter," Twilight said quietly almost inaudibly.

“I think it does.” Rarity looked Twilight right in the eye. “You are letting your grief speak for you. I’m not saying this will be easy, but you can get through this.”

Rarity put a comforting hoof on Twilight’s shoulder. “You are a strong smart wonderful beautiful mare. I can tell. But you have something else as well. Friends. Ponies that love and care about you. Isn’t there somepony in your life that would be devastated if something happened to you?”

Twilight stayed silent for a long time. “Shining… Mom…”

Rarity smiled. “See. But, you can’t just do it for them. You have to do it for yourself too. Do you really want to end it all? Isn’t there something you want to live for?”

“But the guilt...the pain…” Twilight tried to say, but Rarity held up a hoof.

“As I said, it will be hard, but in time it will be easier. Especially with the ponies that you care about behind you.”

Twilight thought about this and took another sip of her tea. Right now, it was the best thing she had ever tasted. “You might be right.” Twilight finally said.

Rarity gave another warm smile. “You’re stronger than you know. That is what I always say.”

Rarity gave Twilight a tight hug. Twilight didn’t resist and returned it. She had tears in her eyes. “There there. Everything will be okay. I promise.”

Twilight sniffed. "Thanks, Rarity."


----

Rarity showed Twilight to the door. “Now remember, if you ever want to talk, I’m right here.”

Twilight nodded. “I will Rarity thanks. You are a good friend.”

Rarity gave a wide smile. “You could say it is my special talent to find hope in the darkness.”

Twilight looked around the Ponyville. “I’ll make amends for this somehow. I have to no matter what!” She said with determination. There was a fire in her eyes. It seemed she had hope again. The light in her had not gone out yet.

Twilight waved Rarity goodbye. There was a faint smile on her face. Rarity returned it and went back to her house.

"I know you will Twilight." Rarity said to herself closing the door behind her. Her eyes glinted strangely in the light. "You must. Trixie and her friends are going to need you, sister."

Twilight eventually found herself at a bridge.

...the one in Ponyville that goes over a stream maybe six inches deep?

....maybe?

I have to say, why whenever Trixie and Twilight first meet, does it always involve the word Ursa?

... Sequel? With Twilight becoming the seventh member...?

Well this was funny to read and brushed up my nostalgia with the original show of power rangers . So are there plans for sequel? :twilightsmile:

Yes actually. I've started writing it right now.

Big differences from the main sequence. Main line, Twilight got in trouble with the law. Night Light blamed Trixie & turned on Ponyville to punish her. This pushed Trixie into the events at the Gala & led to Crisis on Two Equestrias sequence. Here, none of this will ever happen.

Thanks for all the corrections.

You will find a lot of little things have had a big influence on how things turned out. Zecora's betrayal being one the biggest. Corona losing her magic completely changed her approach to defeating the Luna 6. In the sequel, Greengrass's friendship in Vinyl Scratch changed his character quite a bit as well.
