Chapter 34: A Strange Door

Princess Luna sat upright in her royal bed, rotating the strange silver device her sister had found in the ancient chambers in her magic. How could something so small and weightless be able to control a beam of light. She had done several scans to locate any type of magical spell or charm, but the device was clean.

Well, clean from magic anyways. Even with Princess Luna's effort, the device still had dust all over it, masking the chrome parts from shining in the moonlight.

Princess Luna held the device up in her magic and pressed down on a switch. The same neon green beam of light shot from the device, engulfing her dark room in green light.

As Princess Luna waved the device around, the beam of light made a slight whirring sound as it danced through the air. It acted somewhat like a sword that were sometimes used by the Royal Guard, each having what must be a blade and easy grip and handling.

"Hmm, if this is a sword, then what happens if-" Princess Luna got out of her bed and pointed the green beam of light at the floor of her room, before slowly poking a wooden floorboard.

To Princess Luna's surprise, the beam of light went right through the floorboard, leaving a hole in the wood when she retracted the device.

Princess Luna knelt down to the floorboard, eyeing the hole in disbelief. How could a beam of light cut through wood? Well this was another race's technology, but still, how is that possible?

With curiosity flowing through her mind, Princess Luna stood back up on her hooves and trotted over to the balcony doors. She pushed the glass doors open, allowing a faint gust of cool air to blow into the room. She then looked at the wall that operated her room and the balcony.

The castle walls were made out of solid white concrete and were tough as rocks. The only thing that could break them were strong magical blasts or heavy objects like canon balls, and even those have to take a few tries before a wall would crumble.

Princess Luna stood in the doorway between her room and the balcony, watching closely as her magic slowly inched the green beam towards the wall from her room. Once the beam made contact with the wall, a loud hissing noise began to fill her ears.

The more Princess Luna pushed the blade into the wall, the louder the hissing and amount of steam radiating from the hole. But surely this blade couldn't break through the wall, right?

But the more she pushed the blade, the further and further it went into the wall. It surprised her that she almost felt zero force when pushing the blade through the wall. Then, after pushing the blade one last time, the beam of light broke through the wall and emerged from the other side of it.

It didn't take long before the entire beam of light was through the wall and out the other side, leaving only the silver device on the inside of the room. Princess Luna retracted the beam from the wall and looked at it in dismay. This thing cut through the castle walls like a knife through butter.

"Very impressive." Princess Luna stated, switching off the device which caused the green beam to vanish back into it.

Princess Luna set the device down on the nightstand next to her bed only to catch a glance at an alarm clock.

"9:39?! Oh we should of started work hours ago!" Princess Luna told herself, quickly hopping into bed.

Princess Luna shut her eyes and ignited her horn, ready to hop into the dream realm.

Princess Luna opened her eyes to see a row of doors on both sides of a star lit path in the dream realm. She levitated a small clipboard out of nowhere with a blank sheet of paper on it as well as a freshly dipped quill.

She turned to trot towards the first door to enter, but stopped in her tracks when she noticed another door. It was common for new doors to appear and old ones to fade away as new life was born and old life moved on, but this door seemed, strange.

The door was made out of solid white metal with several scorch marks scattered about it. A control panel was to the side, beeping and blinking. On the door was a strange symbol that looked like a wheel of some sorts.

Princess Luna put the clipboard on the door she was originally gonna enter as a bookmark to remember which one, before trotting over to the door.

Princess Luna tried to find a door handle, but couldn't. Eventually, she went over to the control panel and started pressing buttons. A red light flashed when she hit the enter button, signalling that it needed a password to open.

"Strange, a dream door has never had a lock on it before." Princess Luna stated out loud, not remembering her ever encounter a door she couldn't open.

Princess Luna tried to guess the password a few more times, entering the date Equestria was founded, tonight's date, the amount of doors she could see from where she was standing, even one two three four. Each one however just answered with a red light.

Eventually, Princess Luna just tried to pry open the door with her magic, but the door remained shut. Princess Luna's frustration began to rise as she stared down the stubborn door.

Finally, Princess Luna was done fooling around. She glared at the door, taking in a deep breath, before releasing it in the royal canterlot voice.

"THOU DOOR SHALL LET US PASS FOR WE ARE THE PRINCESS OF THE NIGHT AND PROTECTOR OF DREAMS!!" Princess Luna bellowed, her voice so loud that a few other dream doors were blown open.

Princess Luna glared at the door for a few more seconds, before sighing. She looked around the area at all the open doors. A few objects or creatures from each ponies dream began to exit into the hall. Princess Luna quickly used her magic to put the objects and creatures back into their respected dreams and shut the doors.

Once each door was shut, she looked back at the strange door in defeat. She had other things to do then just play around with a single door.

However, when Princess Luna glanced at the control panel, she noticed that the bar that would turn red when the wrong password was entered now glowed yellow. Suddenly, the metal door slowly slid to the left, letting a crack of light from the dream leak out into the hall.

Princess Luna went over to the door and tried to use her magic to open it the rest of the way, but the door remained solid like a boulder. So instead, she just peaked through the crack into the dream work beyond.

Princess Luna's eyes adjusted to the light from within the dream, revealing a swamp-like area with several crates and machines set up.

It didn't take long before a set of movement caught Princess Luna's eyes. She looked over at the source of the movement, expecting a pony to emerge from the swamp. However, to her shock, a bi-pedal homo-sapient creature wearing white armor and holding a strange black device.

Princess Luna spotted several other homo-sapients wearing similar white armor and holding other strange black devices. The group went over to an area that was surrounded by monitors and began fiddling with them.

"Is that bombing strike ready yet? Those droids are getting to close." One said, rotating the object they were holding.

"Not yet Strider. They can't bomb their spot and ours at the same time. We have to hold this line, at all costs." Another said to the one they called Strider.

"Alright then, set up a defensive perimeter around the area. Those tanks are gonna be quite difficult to keep at bay" Strider exclaimed.

The others took off around the area, vanishing from view from where Princess Luna was standing. Strider went over to a monitor and started fiddling with it. A few signs emerged on the monitor, before Strider glanced over towards where the door Luna was looking from.

The two stared at each other for what felt like hours, before the door suddenly shut. Princess Luna stumbled back, not expecting the door to shut so abruptly. That shock quickly turned into anger at the fact that the door had shut her out right before she could do anything.

"OPEN THY DOOR ONCE AGAIN! WE ARE NOT FINISHED WITH OUR WORK!" Princess Luna shouted in the royal canterlot voice at the door as she did before. But unlike before, the door remained shut, no yellow bar appearing on the control panel.

Princess Luna snarled at the door, before turning around to face the other doors. She was done with that for now and she had plenty other things to do. But she did give the door an angry buck, before trotting over to the door she had set the clipboard on.
