The Battle

The princesses gathered around the map, examining their options. Tomorrow they would battle the Dark Lord in the decisive battle. The fate of all of Equestria hung in the balance. Whether Equestria continued to be a land of friendship and harmony or slip into the black night would be decided upon the fields of tomorrow.

Celestia finally spoke. "It is not good. We are outgunned, outmanned, outnumbered, outplanned. Tomorrow will be our last stand."

Slowly columns marched over the horizon and moved into formations to accept battle. The ragged, decimated army stood no chance of victory. Still they would fight. The Dark Lord planned to give them a quick death.

The ground began to tremble and a rumble came from over the horizon. Suddenly pink soldiers came over the hillside. First there were dozens, then hundreds, then thousands, then tens of thousands, all shouting "Fun! Fun! Fun!" The Dark Lord's heart was filled with dread and the forces of Equestria charged at him....
