Chapter 10: Informing the Princesses

It had been two weeks since Trixie fought Illusia, Trixie frowned as she sat in throne room of Canterlot Castle next to Spike and Babs. Celestia frowned “Are sure of this? Such a powerful being is beyond any of our comprehension save yourself.”

Trixie frowned “Yes I’m sure, I fought her and we have no idea what she plans.”

Twilight nodded “I trust you Trixie, you would not lie about this. The fact Babs collaborates your story confirms it for me.”

Luna frowned “What should we do about her though, she is so powerful that it would risky to track her down.’

Spike frowned “I believe we need to wait, in truth we don’t have any idea of her motivations. We can’t afford to brash about all of this.’

A serpentine figure appeared in front of them “I agree with young Spike, the power that she emits is terrifying. I have felt such power since the soul experiments done many millennia ago when pony kind was still in it’s infancy and Alicorns ruled the world.”

Trixie grimaced “Discord tell me about these soul experiments, they must have something to do with this.”

Discord frowned “I don’t like discussing these but fine. There were two types of experiments done by the Alicorns, they…”

Luna growled “How dare you insult our ancestors, they would never do such horrid…” Trixie and Twilight cut her off with fierce glares before beckoning the Draconequus to continue.

Discord grimaced “AS I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, the Alicorns did two types of experiments one was live testing, they forced an increased amount of a soul trait into a pony of one of the three ‘lesser tribes’ in order to test the effects. The other was forging artefact based on soul power, they forged seven major artefacts of each trait and multiple minor ones. The problem with the major artefact was they were so powerful they could even drive an Alicorn insane if they used to for long enough.”

Twilight raised an eyebrow “If such artefacts are so powerful what happened to them?”

Discord frowned “Well they were all sealed away in ancient temples, older than even Grogar himself. One, the Curse of Determination however ended up in the hooves of a certain showmare.”

Spike eyes widened “Wait you mean The Alicorn Amulet.”

Babs frowned “That doesn’t explain what we’re going to do about Illusia. She is out there and she wants my head.”

Trixie frowned at her “It’s because she realised your soul power was a threat but now that I am here she will focus on me. Still it would be good for you to say with the Apple Family. As for what we’re going to do, well it would be best for us to wait until she strikes again.”

Babs shouted “Are you crazy, she need to be stopped! What if she strikes again, she could kills us all.”

Discord frowned “Look, you don’t understand anything.Celestia, Luna and I have years more experience then you. We all agree that this is something not to be rushed into and to be assessed carefully.”

Celestia nodded “Indeed, we can’t rush into this.”

Twilight frowned “I believe we should return to Ponyville, I’ll inform the girls about our meeting but no-one else. We must keep this quiet, we don’t want a panic.”

Trixie frowned “Indeed, I’ll return the four of us back to Ponyville.” Twilight, Babs, and Spike stood around Trixie. The three appeared back in Ponyville, Trixie frowned as she summoned her green hand to block a pink blast.

Illusia was floating there pointed a hoof at Trixie “You know I wanted to take over Equestria but now the only thing I wish for is to beat you.”

Trixie shrugged as she took off towards the Everfree, Illusia followed eagerly. Illusia laughed “So this is where you wished to fight me, very well.”

Her eyes began leaking out black ooze, she fired a barrage of pink and pitch black blasts. Trixie shrugged as she her red hand fired a huge red beam at obliterating the smaller blasts, Illusia growled as she created a pink poleaxe in one hand and a pink trident in the other an teleported behind Trixie only to slash into a wooden log she then looked around as she saw multiple white dots which turned orange and exploded.

Trixie raised an eyebrow as the injured Illusia “Why are you doing all this?”

Illusia growled “Because I was used as an experiment by the Alicorns, they made me into this monster! Everyone treated me like a monster!” she took a deep breath “I thought that maybe if I took over Equestria I may earn some respect but after meeting you, you are strong and maybe if I beat you I will gain some respect.”

Trixie frowned “I could kill you now but I won’t, the next time we fight I expect you to learn some new tricks.” Trixie disappeared in a flash of light.

Trixie returned to Spike’s home, Spike grabbed her “Are you alright?!”

Trixie nodded “I’m fine but I would like you to assist me, I could use your help as it seem Illusia wishes to be my rival. T o beat me and that means I need to keep ahead of the game so to speak.”

Spike sighed “Well I’m glad that you’re safe” he then smiled “So you want to go out for dinner tomorrow.”

Trixie grinned “Sure, now mind if you can give some ideas for training.”

Spike smiled “Not exactly but I have a feeling Discord could help you train, it sound right up his ally.” Trixie restrained a gulp as she realised that she would have more than a few bruises at the end of the day.

Author's Note:

I want Illusia to act as a minor antagonist to Trxie, I hope I got it down right.
