Chapter 2: Meeting Five Alicorns

Night Crystal's POV:
As I reach the front of the castle, I see that it is completely made mainly of a light blue crystal, violet purple towers stemming in three directions, dandelion yellow roofing topping off all of the peaks of the crystal. Five honey colored balconies of varying sizes, a pink banner with a purple star waving in the wind at the tallest point, but most impressive was the Alicorn tall gold doors with two raspberry colored stars on each one. The crystal looks like it stems from the Tree of Harmony. The only reason I know about that is because of all of the heroics that I have heard about being done by the bearers of the Elements of Harmony. Which I have no idea who they are; I know the elements are honesty, loyalty, generosity, laughter, kindness, and magic. As I approach the door to the castle I look around and see the chariots of Luna, Celestia, and Cadence. All of the Alicorns that I know of have now arrived at Twilight's castle.

I rap on the door and wait for someone to answer it. After about a minute, a purple Alicorn mare opens the door and looks at me in utter shock, then immediately slams the door in my face. I stand there for approximately ten minutes before the door slowly reopens.

During those ten minutes of waiting
Twilight's POV:
I slam the door shut in panic and the princesses come over to me to see what the commotion is about.
"Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, Princess Cadence; are there any more Alicorns besides us and Flurry Heart?" I say without much hesitation.

"Well none that I can think of, even going back to when Luna and I were fillies," Celestia says puzzlingly.

"Why?" Cadence asks with a turned head, while holding a blubbering Flurry Heart.

"Well you see, there is an Alicorn standing outside of this door right now, and I don't know who it is."

"Well then why don't we open the door and find out who this Alicorn is," Luna says, staying calm. After all, she is the princess of the night. I turn around and open the door again to reveal the Alicorn fellow still standing there, waiting patiently.

Night Crystal's POV:
As the door opens, I see all of the Alicorns that I know of are standing there staring at me in utter bewilderment, including a baby Alicorn held by Princess Cadence. "Hi, um, I was wondering if a certain Twilight Sparkle was here?"

The purple mare slowly peeked out from behind the door, replying, "Yes, I am Twilight Sparkle. How can I help you?"

"I was originally looking for you, wondering if you could get in contact with the princesses, but as I can plainly see, they are right in front of me, along with a filly who I don't remember hearing about?"

"Oh, this is Flurry Heart, she is mine and Shining Armor's daughter, and is Twilight's niece. What did you want to speak to us about?" exclaims Cadence.

"I was wondering if you could tell me which one of you gave me my horn and accidentally turned me into an Alicorn when I was younger?" I ask. All of the princesses were shocked.

"I beg thy pardon!?" Luna shouts.

"When I was growing up in an orphanage, I was told that my wings would never work, so an Alicorn came and blessed me with a horn since I couldn't fly, or supposedly I couldn't. After I fled the orphanage I taught myself to fly by jumping off cliffs that were near the sea. So I wouldn't get hurt. I have lived in seclusion for most of my life and wanted to try to make friends ever since I read something in the paper about a princess of friendship. So here I am!?" I explain with caution. After all, this was a really, really big fib that I was telling to four (five?) Alicorn princesses.

“I have no idea. For all we know it could have been Queen Galaxia, our mother,” Princess Celestia says, looking over at Luna. Continuing on, Celestia comments, “It is possible, but of course we could never know, you may very well be the sixth Alicorn in existence and no one knew of you. Why did you-“

“Why did thee flee thy orphanage and why come into a town after so long of being alone, if thee have been living in seclusion since the time of our mother? Since that would mean that thee are older then all of the currently living Alicorns, and therefore-"

"Don't you dare suggest that Luna! That is ridiculous and physically impossible!!"

"Is it sister? Thou would not know if I hit thee in the face!" Luna shouted.

"Luna! Watch your tongue around royal company!" Cadence growled.

"Fine, but we are still going to say it sister. It would mean that dear Night Crystal here is the oldest Alicorn in existence and therefore would be Queen Night Crystal. Whether my light sister likes it or not. That would also be based on whether she would want to take the title as queen or just be her everyday self. But we would first ask that of thee Night Crystal."

"I ... I ... I don't know. I feel as if I do not fit the definition of a queen as I don't know many ponies very well, since I have lived in isolation my whole life. I would prefer to stay myself, but I would at least like some money and a place to stay to get myself started. If you wouldn't mind?"

"Of course!!" Twilight all but shouts, "You can stay here in one of the guest rooms next to Starlight, one of my friends, and I'm sure the two sisters wouldn't mind giving you a small fortune to help you on your feet."

"In that, my student and fellow princess, Twilight is correct. We will give you a small fortune to help you on your feet and also get a team started on building you a house where you wish," Celestia says in a gentle tone.

I think to myself that this day has gone perfect, and my life as an Alicorn has just begun.

Author's Note:

Thanks to all of those that read this story! Your support is very much appreciated and I am always looking for feedback to improve my writing, although no harsh criticism please. If you read my story and think it is awful then don't read it. Hope you enjoyed the meeting of all of the Alicorns.

I'll try to update as frequently as I can, as I have to balance school and my arthritis with this task of writing. Also writers block may be occasional.
