Special announcement!

Starting now, if you press the like button on this story and are able to name all the references in this chapter(I will tell you how much there is for each chapter), give me the information of your OC on my account page and I will put your OC in the following chapter!

There are three references in this chapter. Good luck!

P.S. Sorry for the short chapter. This is merely a buildup to a fight scene.
P.P.S. The Commenter’s OC will be included in the fight scene if he/she wishes.


“Omygoshomygoshomygoshomygosh!!” Luminous Skies squeals as he jumps around in joy and excitement not believing what has happened to him. “I am literally living every brony’s dream right now!” He giggles happily.

“Wait! Hold up!” He says as he stops jumping around. “If I am really my OC, then I should have a very particular set of skills. Skills that I have acquired over a long periodically time.” He says before bursting out in laughter as he realizes that he put two completely random references in a sentence. As his laughter dies down he says “Oh, this is going to be fun.”

“Alllllright! First order of business. As my OC I should have all of the abilities that I gave him on earth. Ability one! I need to see if I am bipedal.” Luminous says to himself as he then takes a deep breath and slowly attempts to stand on his hind legs. You got this. You got this. You got this. He says to himself repeatedly as he proceeds to put his center of gravity on his hind legs keeping his arms to the side for balance. Not before long he’s standing fully upright still keeping his arms to his side. Luminous gasps as a wide smile spread across his face.

“I-I’m standing. I’m standing! OH MY GOD THIS IS FRIGGIN AWESOME!!” He shrieks jovially as he starts to run around jumping, even doing some b-twists and backflips, while whooping in joy all the way.

“Hehe, okay. Enough of that. Next ability is using my wings as hands.” He says and then unfurls his huge wings and closes his eyes concentrating on moving the individual muscles that envelop his wings. Then slowly, Luminous begins to wiggle his wings as if they were fingers. Luminous opens his eyes and sees this, in which emanates a fangirly giggle from him. He then made the thumbs up sign with his wings, the ok sign and then he chuckled when he flipped off a tree.

Alright!” Luminous says with a smile looking at his wings. “Wing-hands is a check! If only I had a notepad on me.” then he smirks. “Which conveniently leads us to our next ability.” He reaches in his tail with his wings and much to his delight, he seems to pull out a pen and notepad out of thin air. “Magic Satchel is a check!” Luminous exclaims with a smile as he quickly jots down all of his abilities and puts check marks on the ones that he accomplished.

Luminous then put his pen and notepad down and flapped his huge wings once and lifted of the ground and slowly floated back down. “Flying...check!” He says as he picks the pen and notepad up and places a check mark next to that ability. As he looks as his list again he notices there is only one more ability to try out. And it was his “signature move” as one may say.

“And now to harness the Aurora Borealis.” He says with determination and hopefulness.

He then closes his eyes. He imagines himself flying in the North Pole, with the Aurora Borealis flowing in ribbons all around him. He, being an absolute sucker for beautiful scenery, smiled as his eyes well up with tears from just imagining the beautiful and wonderful experience.

Luminous begins to lift off of the ground surrounded by a green aura. He then opened his now glowing green eyes as he flared his wings. The Aurora Lights traveled out in all directions. Little did Luminous Skies know that these all the lights would spread across all over the world. Not only throughout Equestria, but Griffonstone, the Dragon Lands, Yakyakistan, everywhere Celestia’s Sun touches, the Aurora Lights do as well.

Luminous’s eyes go back to normal as he slowly floats down and the Aurora Lights dispersed. With tears of joy in his eyes, he takes his notepad in his wings and checks the last ability off before putting it back in his in his tail.

“That’s all of them,” he smiled. “Now there’s only one last ability to find out about, and that’s Darkness.” He said with a tint of worry on his face, but it quickly fell off. “But the good news is I’m only triggered by that of my friends are in pain or worse, killed. Some luck I’ve had making friends.” He says remembering his life before and begins to shed some tears.

Luminous then slaps himself for doing such a thing and then proceeds to scold himself. C’mon Luminous, you don’t have to be sad anymore. Then he tells himself with a smile, Because where is a better place to make friends other than in Equestria? He says as his smile grows. In fact maybe I can even make friends with the Main Si- His thoughts are cut off as he hears a shrill scream of fear coming from deep inside of the forest. Speak of the devil, I recognize that scream anywhere! He exclaims in his head as he takes off and flies towards the scream.
