The Wrath of Queen Tundra, Part 2- Act 4

"AAAAAAAGH!!!" Queen Tundra roared, enraged as her horn flared, which caused the icicle on Tempest's horn to shatter. "You ungrateful little...!! I offer you everything you could ever want and you throw it all away?!"

"I have everything I've ever wanted," Tempest answered. "I have my friends...and I have my home! I wouldn't be where I am, now, without them!"

Twilight and the others all smiled at Tempest, who smiled back at them before she continued to glare at Queen Tundra.

"You can keep your offer, Queen Tundra," said Tempest. "Or should I say...Velvet Snowfall?"

Queen Tundra gasped as that name hit her ears, but then she growled at the unicorn as her horn flared.

"How dare you call me that name," she said. "That pony is dead!"

"No she's not," said Twilight as she stepped forward. "She's right here...trapped in an icy shell of loneliness."

"Back off!!" Queen Tundra yelled. "I'm warning you all!! Back off, right now!!!"

"Come on, Velvet," said Frostbite as he approached the alicorn, who backed away from him. "Even you know this isn't the real you..." He then looked at her with these sad, sincere eyes. "Please...come back to me."

A pause...but then Queen Tundra growled as her eyes glowed white and her horn flared, even more, causing everypony in the room to gasp.

"I told you...!" she hissed. "Don't call me by that name...AGAIN!!!"

She then unleashed a powerful blast of icy wind, forcing the group back, some of them crashing into walls and shattering their chains, but only Tempest and Twilight managed to keep themselves grounded. They both glared up at the icy alicorn with fierce determination while she glared right back. She fired an ice beam at the two, but they quickly jumped out of the way. Twilight fired a beam of her own, but Queen Tundra jumped out of the way of the attack before she fired another, but a blast from Tempest's horn canceled out the attack. Rainbow Dash roared as she tried to tackle the alicorn, who kicked her away before she could get too close, then fired a beam at Rainbow Dash, causing her to get frozen in ice!

"Rainbow Dash!!" cried Twilight.

"Rrrgh...ugh!!" Rainbow Dash grunted as she tried to pull herself out of the ice block. "I'm stuck!!"

Queen Tundra chuckled sinisterly, but then she gasped as she saw her Pegasus minions flying all around her in different directions. She growled as she tried to pick a target, but then her horn began to glow a bright light. Then, she unleashed a powerful burst of ice magic, freezing her minions in blocks of ice with just their heads free. Applejack attempted to drag the villainous alicorn down using her lasso, the rope snagging one of Queen Tundra's hooves, but then the alicorn flew up, causing Applejack to yelp as she found herself being carried upward, then Queen Tundra whirled around, sending Applejack spinning around as well before she dropped to the floor, dazed and hurt. Before she could regain her bearings, Queen Tundra soon froze her in ice, as well!

"Applejack!!" Twilight shouted.

"Who's next?" asked Queen Tundra as she looked around, catching Fluttershy in her sights as the yellow Pegasus attempted to fly up behind her and take off the ice tiara, but before she could away, Queen Tundra soon shot Fluttershy with her ice magic, causing her to be frozen against the wall.

"Agh!!" Fluttershy cried.

"Fluttershy!!" Twilight yelled, causing Queen Tundra to set her sights on her, which caused her to gasp before she flew out of the way of one of her ice beams.

"Hold still!!" Queen Tundra shouted as she fired another beam at Twilight, who fired a beam of her own back at her, which caused the two attacks to cancel each other and explode in a cloud of smoke. Queen Tundra growled as she looked around, trying to find Twilight in the smokescreen. Then, out of the corner, she caught a flash of light before she dived down, narrowly avoiding a bolt of magic.

"Nice try," Queen Tundra grinned before she prepared to fire another beam, only for what looked like a large diamond-shaped projectile to be hurled at her, forcing her to move out of the way before she fired another beam, and this time, she heard a shriek that followed. As the smoke cleared, she saw that it was Rarity.

"Rarity!!" Twilight cried out.

"I'm sorry! I was trying to distract her!" Rarity apologized.

"Anyone else?" asked Queen Tundra.

"Anyone else?" asked Queen Tundra.

"Hey! Over here!"

Queen Tundra turned to see Pinkie Pie waving at her.

"Bet you can't hit me~!" she called in a teasing voice, prompting the alicorn to fire several beams at her, only for Pinkie to jump out of the way and pop out in different locations.

"Missed me!" she called.

ZAP!!

"Missed me, again!"

ZAP!!

"Missed me, again!!"

ZAP-ZAP-ZAP!!!

"Missed me, missed me, missed me~!"

"AAAAARRGH!!!" Queen Tundra roared before she fired a blast of ice, and this time, Pinkie didn't jump out of the way in time, resulting in her getting frozen in ice with just her head free!

"Uh...oopsie," Pinkie said, sheepishly.

"Pinkie Pie!!" Twilight cried.

Queen Tundra chuckled, seeming unaware that Fluttershy was trying to quietly fly up and grab her tiara...but the alicorn turned and glared at her.

"Fluttershy, look out!!" Tempest cried, but the yellow Pegasus was soon frozen, too!

"No! Fluttershy!!" Twilight shouted.

"Rgh...ugh!!" Fluttershy cried. "Twilight!!"

"And now for you three," said Queen Tundra as she glared at Twilight, Tempest, and Frostbite, who all backed away as she began to advance, leaving large ice crystals in her wake with every step she took. "You really thought you had a chance. You're more pathetic than I thought you were." Her horn began to flare. "Well, it seems your little plan didn't work...Celestia and all your friends are frozen...and winter will never end."

Twilight gasped before she looked at Tempest, who glared at Queen Tundra in defiance...and as for Frostbite, he looked ready to give up hope.

"So...any last words?" asked Queen Tundra.

A pause...but then, Frostbite sighed as he stepped forward.

"...I'm sorry, Velvet," he said. "I'm sorry that...I never realized that you were in so much pain, that you were willing to do this."

Queen Tundra's eyes went wide for a moment.

"I should have been a better brother to you," Frostbite said before he bowed his head. "I should have done better by you...and now...I'll probably never get you back, again." He sniffled as tears began to sting at the corners of his eyes. "I'm...I'm so sorry, Velvet...!"

"Frostbite..." Twilight whispered, sadly, while Queen Tundra scoffed.

"Cute," she said. "Too bad it's time to end this."

Before she could, though...Twilight and Tempest both gasped in disbelief, causing Frostbite to look up and gasp, as well.

Queen Tundra's eyes...were overflowing with tears.

"W...what...?!" she whispered. "What's going-RRGH!!" She suddenly grunted and threw her head about, then opened her eyes...revealing them to be light blue.

"F...Frostbite...!!" a voice that was unlike Queen Tundra's spoke.

"Huh?" the other ponies questioned.

"How'd she do that?!" Pinkie asked.

"...Velvet...?!" Frostbite asked. "Velvet, is that you?!"

"Help me, Frostbite!" cried Velvet Snowfall's voice from Queen Tundra's mouth. "I've been trying to fight back her control!" Suddenly, she grunted as her eyes turned red again.

"Quiet!!" Queen Tundra yelled in her regular voice, again. "You've had your chance!!" She then yelled as her eyes went back to being light blue, again.

"I never meant for any of this to happen!!" cried Velvet. "I can't do this on my own!! AGH!!"

"I said silence!!" Queen Tundra roared, only to scream as Velvet took control, once again.

"HELP ME~!!!" she cried with tears falling from her eyes.

As Queen Tundra and Velvet struggled for control, Twilight gasped before she looked over at Tempest, who blinked in disbelief.

"Tempest! Frostbite!" Twilight called, prompting the unicorn and Pegasus to look at her. "I have an idea, but you have to trust me!"

Tempest and Frostbite blinked in surprise, but then they both nodded their heads with serious expressions.

"Frostbite, you're with me!" Twilight exclaimed, and soon, they flew toward the struggling alicorn and tackled her against the wall at full force, pinning her front legs and her wings.

"ARGH! Release me!!" Queen Tundra yelled.

"Tempest!! SHOOT!!!" Twilight cried, and soon, Tempest fired off a bolt of magic from her broken horn. Everything seemed to move in slow motion as the bolt flew across the room...then, it finally hit its target: Queen Tundra's tiara. The headwear flew off the alicorn's head before it landed on the floor with a clink!

"No!!" Queen Tundra cried before her eyes began to glow a hot white. "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

A wisp of icy wind suddenly burst from her body and into the tiara...and not long after, the alicorn shrank, her coat began to turn from dark teal to a regular teal, and her wispy mane and tail turned into a pearly white mane and tail with cyan streaks. Her horn disappeared and her wings shrunk...revealing a tired Pegasus.

As for Frostbite, he glared down hatefully at the tiara...before he raised his front hooves and stomped on it, smashing it to bits! Not long after...all the ice in the room melted, freeing Celestia, the rest of the Mane 6, and Frostbite's friends. Not only that, but outside, the swirling snow clouds soon began to fade away, revealing the shining sun!

By pure determination and luck...Queen Tundra had been defeated and Equestria had been saved from her wintry wrath!

"WHOO-HOO!! WE DID IT, AGAIN!!!" Pinkie cheered.

"Yes, you did," said Celestia. "Well done, all of you!"

"We couldn't have done it without Tempest," Twilight said, causing Tempest to blush slightly, but then she looked up at Celestia before bowing her head.

"Your Highness," she said.

"Thank you for your help, Tempest Shadow," said Celestia. "We are forever in your debt."

"Ugh..."

The group turned to see Velvet Snowfall, who was being gently nudged by her brother. As Frostbite stood by his sister's side, Celestia, Tempest, the Mane 6, and Queen Tundra's former minions approached them. Velvet gasped silently as she looked up at the group...Celestia in particular, causing her to look down at the floor.

"...I'm so sorry," she said. "There's no excuse for what I did."

"Queen Tundra is the one who committed this heinous crime, Velvet Snowfall," said Celestia. "As for you...you are hereby pardoned."

"...Thank you, Princess Celestia," said Velvet, "but...still...I didn't mean for things to turn out like this. I just...I just wanted everypony to see how beautiful winter could be."

"Winter is a beautiful season," Celestia replied, "but like all the seasons, it's not meant to last forever."

"She's right," said Twilight. "Winter is a time of rest and a time for looking back on the year we left behind...and give us the chance to prepare for the season of spring...and spring is a time when things grow anew."

"Yes," Rarity agreed, "such as new spring fashions."

"And great weather for flying!" Rainbow Dash added.

"The animals can come out and play," Fluttershy pointed out.

"And the flowers can grow," Applejack spoke up.

"And not to mention you get to party with all your friends!" Pinkie exclaimed.

"...I...I don't have any friends," Velvet answered.

"What are you talking about?" asked Frostbite. "Of course, you do!"

"Really?" Velvet asked as she looked up at her brother.

"You've got me, for starters," Frostbite said, putting a hoof on his chest for emphasis.

"And you have us, too!" added Winter Gales and she and the other Pegasus stepped forward.

"And don't forget us," Twilight spoke up as she, Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Tempest, and even Celestia stepped forward, as well. "We'll be your friends, Velvet...now and forevermore."

Velvet's eyes began to well up with tears as she stared at the group...then she smiled warmly at them.

"Thank you..." she whispered. "Thank you, all!"

"Yay, new friends!" Pinkie cheered as everypony soon came in for a group hug.

"...Okay, not to be a wet blanket or anything," Rainbow Dash began, "but don't we have a festival to get back to?"

"I couldn't agree more, Rainbow Dash," Celestia smiled before she turned and headed out. "Well, we better deliver the good news, then!"

As everypony followed their ruler and clamored in agreement...Tempest remained behind and momentarily looked down at the floor.

"...Friends, huh?" she asked before she looked out the window...remembering all the other creatures out there beyond Equestria. "Come to think of it..."

"Tempest?"

Tempest turned to see Twilight walked up to her.

"Aren't you coming?" asked Twilight.

"Uh...yeah, I'm coming," Tempest answered as she walked after the Princess of Friendship.
