Chapter 6

The mane six waited for the battle that they were sure was heading their way. Rainbow Dash kicked around a rock as she grew impatient. “Ugh! When are they going to get here? I’m in the mood to kick some flank right now!”

“Now hold your hooves there Rainbow.” Applejack said. “We’re all anxious about what’s to come, but we need to stay focused. Who knows what those fiends are planning.”

“I just hope that everypony made it out of town safely.” Said Fluttershy. “Especially all of my animal friends.”

Pinkie Pie hopped over to Fluttershy and put her leg around her. “Don’t you worry! We all made sure that the evacuation went smoothly. I’m sure that everypony is safe and sound.”

Meanwhile, Twilight scanned the horizon for any signs of oncoming danger. She stopped when she spotted four figures in the distance. Just as she adjusted her binoculars to get a better look, a huge fireball was launched right at her.

“Incoming!” Twilight shouted. They all scattered as the fireball came crashing down onto the town hall, completely obliterating it. As the dust settled, Twilight and the others got back up on their hooves. “Is anypony hurt?” Twilight called out.

All of her friends indicated that they were fine. Twilight looked up and saw another fireball heading their way. They all scattered again, this time with the fireball striking Sugarcube Corner.

“No! Not the cupcakes!” Pinkie Pie screamed out. More and more fireballs were hurled towards Ponyville, and with each one another building was destroyed. Twilight and her friends ducked for cover underneath the town bridge. The onslaught continued until Ponyville was a sea of fire.

The group emerged from under the bridge and were taken aback by the wall of flames that surrounded them. “Rainbow Dash, round up some storm clouds to put out these fires.” Twilight ordered.

Rainbow Dash saluted and took off into the sky. She zoomed around pushing together as many clouds as she could until she had enough to cause a rainstorm. The rain put out the fires, leaving behind smoldering craters and the burned remains of buildings.

“What could have caused this much damage?” Rarity asked. Tirek, Chrysalis, and Cozy Glow then appeared through the smoke.

“We did.” Cozy Glow said with a sinister smile “With some help from our new friend.” Grogar then appeared, towering over the others.

Twilight and her friends quickly banded together. It was then that Twilight saw the pearl hanging from Grogar’s neck. “Who are you?” Asked Twilight.

“I am Grogar! For millennia I have waited for the right time to emerge and conquer this world. And now with the combined might of Tirek, Chrysalis, and Cozy Glow, we shall be unstoppable!”

Twilight and her friends stood their ground. “Not if we have anything to say about it! You’re dealing with the elements of harmony!”

Grogar threw his head back and let out a deafening laugh. “You honestly think that your friendship is enough to stop me? With this pearl, I am the most powerful being in all of Equestria!”

“We’ll see about that!” Twilight said. The mane six then bounded together and charged up their elemental magic. Before they could fire, Chrysalis lifted Spike in the air with her magic. The little drake struggled to break free, desperately reaching out for Twilight.

Twilight became frozen with shock. “Spike!” She reached out to him, but Chrysalis pulled Spike away at the last moment.

Tirek chuckled. “The mighty Twilight Sparkle, brought to her knees by a mere baby dragon. Pathetic.”

“We had a deal! I gave you the pearl and in return you promised not to harm Spike.” Said Twilight.

Grogar snorted. “You may have made a deal with these three, but not with me! Now stand down or I shall squash this dragon like a bug.”

Twilight lowered her head. She then turned to look at her friends. “Girls, stand down.”

Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy all gasped. “Twilight, you can’t be serious!” Rainbow Dash pleaded.

“Do it!” Twilight shouted. “I swore that I would never let any harm befall Spike, and I’m not about to let that happen now. So we’ll do as Grogar says.”

Everypony stood down. Grogar grinned. “Very good. Now, lead the way to Canterlot. I need to take care of Celestia and Luna.”

Twilight and the others lowered their heads as they led the way towards Canterlot. As they marched, Twilight would look back at Spike. He was still caught in Chrysalis’s magic and struggling to break free. “I swear Spike, I will save you and Equestria.” Twilight thought to herself.

Once they arrived at the gates to Canterlot, the royal guard raised the magical barrier. Shining Armor appeared atop the wall and was shocked to see Twilight. “Twily? What is going on here?”

Twilight looked up at her brother. “Please Shining, you have to let us in! They have Spike and if we don’t do as they say they’ll harm him!”

Shining was torn. He swore to protect Canterlot no matter what. However Spike was like a little brother to him, and he couldn’t stand to see him get hurt.

Chrysalis grew impatient. She walked over to Twilight. “Perhaps you need a little demonstration of what will happen if your brother does not open that gate.” Chrysalis then used her magic to squeeze Spike, causing him to scream out loud.

“Stop!” Shining yelled. “I shall let you pass.” Shining had the other guards lower the magic barrier and open the gates. Grogar, Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy Glow all marched into Canterlot with the elements of harmony walking right beside them.

As they marched towards the castle, everypony watching could not believe their eyes. Grogar was the most imposing figure that they had ever seen, more so than Tirek or Chrysalis. When the group reached the castle, Celestia and Luna were already outside waiting.

“Who are you?” Celestia asked.

“I am Grogar! The most powerful being in all of Equestria!”

“What is it that you want?” Asked Luna.

“You will surrender unto me and declare me the ruler of Equestria! Failure to do so will result in your complete annihilation!”

“Hey! What about us?” Asked Cozy Glow.

Grogar turned to face Cozy Glow, Tirek, and Chrysalis. “What about you?”

“How will Equestria be divided up?” Tirek asked.

Grogar raised an eyebrow. “What do you mean divided up?”

“Surely you would not get all of Equestria to yourself.” Chrysalis said. “Since we’ve all been working together, it’s only fair that Equestria be divided up between the four of us.”

“And why should I give you any land?” Said Grogar. “The three of you have barely accomplished anything since I recruited you. The only thing that you have gotten right is getting me the pearl.”

“That isn’t the only thing we’ve gotten.” Tirek then reached behind himself and revealed Grogar’s bell.

Grogar was shocked. “My bell! You’ve been keeping it from me this whole time?!”

Cozy Glow told hold of the bell. “That’s right! And we think that splitting up Equestria three ways is better than four, don’t you agree?”

“You dare betray me?! I’ll make you pay for this!” Grogar fired a magical blast at Cozy Glow, Tirek, and Chrysalis. Cozy Glow used the bell to put up a magic shield that blocked the blast. She then fired a magic blast of her own, but Grogar was also able to put up a shield.

In the midst of the firefight, Celestia and Luna began evacuating Canterlot. Everypony ran for the nearest exit out of the city, except for Twilight. She ran headlong into the battle.

“Twilight, what are you doing?!” Celestia asked.

“Spike is still being held captive. I have to rescue him before he gets hurt!”

“Well you are not going headlong into danger without us darling.” Rarity said. Twilight nodded in agreement, and the six friends charged into the fight.

Meanwhile, Grogar continued firing magic shots at Tirek, Chrysalis and Cozy Glow. The three villains did the same, with neither side gaining an inch of ground. Spike still struggled to free himself from Chrysalis’s magic. He then reached out and scratched Chrysalis across the face with his claws.

“Ow! You little pest!” Chrysalis then threw Spike directly at a wall.

For Twilight, time suddenly stood still. She could see the fear on Spike’s face as he headed towards the wall. Twilight then leapt into the air with all of her might and caught Spike in her hooves. She held him close as she tucked and rolled along the ground.

Twilight kissed Spike gently on the forehead after they came to a stop. Spike nuzzled her back. Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, and Rarity were soon by Twilight’s side. “Is Spike alright?” Fluttershy asked.

Twilight nodded her head. She then hooved Spike over to Fluttershy. With a stern look on her face, Twilight began marching towards Grogar, Tirek, Chrysalis, and Cozy Glow. “It’s time to finish this.” She said.

Twilight marched right up to the four battling fiends and shouted “ENOUGH!” Grogar, Cozy Glow, Chrysalis, and Tirek stopped fighting and they all turned their heads to look at Twilight.

“The four of you have crossed the line!” Twilight shouted in anger. “You have kidnapped Spike and threatened him with harm. As his mother, I will not let this stand!”

“Oh? And what are you going to do?” Cozy Glow said mockinly.

Fire burned in Twilight’s eyes. Her horn glew brightly as Twilight charged it with all of the magical energy that she had. Twilight then fired a massive beam of energy. Grogar dodged out of the way while Cozy Glow tried to put up a magical shield. The shield was instantly destroyed and Twilight’s energy beam struck the magic bell, causing it to shatter into dust.

“Our bell!” Chrysalis yelled. She, Tirek, and Cozy Glow all turned to run away but Twilight and her friends used their combined magic to blast them and trap them in stone.

“That should hold them for now.” Twilight said. She then turned to confront Grogar. “Now to take care of you.”

Grogar let out a laugh. “You fools! That bell was the only thing in all of Equestria that could match my power! Now how do you propose to defeat me?”

“With the power of friendship!” Twilight and her friends then combined their magic and fired a massive beam at Grogar. Grogar countered with a beam of his own. The two beams collided, with both sides giving every ounce of energy they had to try and overpower the other.

Both sides pushed back and forth with their energy beams, each trying to overpower the other. Twilight and her friends put every ounce of strength they had into the beam, but Grogar’s beam was just too strong. Twilight was about to give up when she noticed Spike on the ground. He was clapping and cheering them on. Seeing Spike filled Twilight with a newfound strength, and she charged up the beam with everything she had.

The main six’s beam pushed back Grogar’s beam and he was struck. The force from the blast destroyed his horns and Grogar returned to normal size. The pearl was broken free from Grogar’s collar and rolled towards Twilight.

Celestia, Luna, and the other citizens of Canterlot came rushing back into the city to congratulate Twilight and her friends. Grogar fell to the ground in exhaustion, and soon found himself surrounded by royal guards. As he was being taken away, Grogar called out to Twilight.

“You think that this is over? There are numerous villains just like me who are waiting to attack Equestria! You ponies will never know peace!”

“Then we’ll be ready for whatever threatens Equestria. No matter what!” Twilight called back.

“I knew that Luna and I made the right choice in choosing you to be our successor” Celestia said.

Twilight picked up the pearl. “Thank you, Celestia. Now there is just one more thing to take care of.” Twilight walked over to Spike. She gave him the pearl and soon Spike began to glow. Within seconds the black smoke was lifted from Spike, and he returned to normal.

Spike looked around in confusion. “Huh, what’s going on? Why are we in Canterlot? Also, why am I wearing a diaper?”

Twilight smiled and hugged Spike. “Don’t worry, I’ll explain everything.”

In the weeks that followed, ponies from all over Equestria gathered to help rebuild Ponyville brick by brick. Grogar, Tirek, Chrysalis, and Cozy Glow were all imprisoned in tartarus. Twilight ascended to ruler of Equestria once Celestia and Luna stepped down. Starlight took over as headmare of the school of friendship.

One day while Twilight was sitting on her throne and going over royal documents, she suddenly remembered the words of Blue Orchid. “Being a good mother doesn’t happen overnight. It takes trial and error.” Twilight felt that the same could easily be said about leading all of Equestria.

Spike was getting a little older, but he still served as Twilight’s #1 assistant. And Twilight still viewed him as her younger brother. Spike entered the throne room carrying more documents.

“Some more documents for you to go through.” Spike said.

Twilight then had an idea. “You know what Spike? The documents can wait. What do you say we take a break and head back to Ponyville for the day? It will be great to catch up with all of our friends.”

Spike’s face lit up. “Really? Because It’s been a while since I’ve seen Rarity.”

Twilight gave Spike a smirk. “Don’t be coy with me Spike. I know that you and Rarity have been dating recently.”

Spike blushed and rubbed the back of his head. “Well, we have been on a few dates.”

Twilight and Spike then headed out of the castle and towards the royal chariot. Spike turned to Twilight and asked “Hey Twilight, what do think the future holds for us?”

Twilight smiled and patted Spike on the head as they sat in the chariot. “You know Spike, let’s just focus on the present for now.”

it a good ending it just feels a little rushed

Very nice! This turned out to be a wonderful potential ending for Season 9. I like the idea of Grogar having one magical artifact for power while Cozy, Tirek, and Chrysalis had another. Like true bad guys they ended up turning on each other. This is what opened the door for Twilight and her friends to save the day.

This part seemed a little rushed. However I think it made it feel more like a genuine episode for doing so. There isn't always time to describe every single nuance to a given moment, episode, etc. The way you wrote this gave a true, to me, show-like feel.

I do hope Cozy Glow doesn't end up in Tartarus. I think she just needs some very special help to not be bad. Perhaps Foal Juvenile Hall and a Counselor? Perhaps some time in a Equestrian Psychiatric Ward?

I applaud you and this story. Very delightful and truly a fun read. :)

That's it, huh? I feel like there could've been a way to tie it all at the end, maybe Twilight thinking back on that experience with an older Spike?
