Chapter 2: Apologies and Plots

CCCRRRRREEEEAK

"Hello?"

Headmare Starlight Glimmer creaked open the castle doors. She had heard the news that Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy Glow reformed, but she wanted to see it for herself.

And maybe even share what it was like when SHE reformed. That is, if the reports were true.

Starlight stepped in, with a certain draconequis following her.

"I still don't see why you called me here," Discord said.

"You've heard that Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy reformed, right?"

Suddenly, a second Discord wearing a papercolt costume appeared, stopping Starlight and the original Discord in her tracks. He started dancing around them with a grin on his face, holding a newspaper with his talon.

"Extra, extra, read all about it!" he said, before stopping and throwing the paper at Discord, who caught it in midair (no chaos magic included).

Papercolt Discord then waved before vanishing.

Discord looked over the paper before saying, "Oh, I may have known at some level." The paper suddenly vanished.

"I was hoping that I could see if that was true," Starlight said.

"How would you know?"

"You'll see."

It only took ten minutes, but Starlight and Discord soon found the door that led into the former villains' room.

"Hello?"

The three villains, who appeared to be playing a card game turned their gazes to Starlight. Chrysalis and Cozy ooked the most flustered. Not suprising, since they went against her the most. Chrysalis swore revenge on her. Later, Cozy held her captive to drain Equestrian magic.

"I just thought I'd check up on you to see if the reports were true," Starlight said, walking in. "I guess they were correct."

"So you believe we reformed?" Tirek asked.

"Yes."

Discord entered and stood next to Starlight.

Chrysalis and Cozy looked like they struggled to speak. Starlight could tell.

It only took a few seconds before Chrysalis finally decided to speak first.

"Starlight, we-"

"Don't," Starlight said. "Don't apologize."

"Huh?" asked Cozy.

"You don't need to apologize. Neither to me OR Discord. Yes, you attacked Canterlot. Yes, you soon returned, and when I defeated you, you swore revenge and loathed me for a long time. Yes, I've heard of the story where Tirek escaped Tartarus, stole power from ponies, and even convinced Discord to join him , only to betray him later. And yes, Cozy held me captive in order to drain every ounce of magic out of Equestria. And let's not forget that one attack on Canterlot where you all worked together and harnessed the powers of the Bewitching Bell. But you know what?"

Starlight stepped forward.

"I forgive you. All of you."

The villains smiled.

"Thank you." Cozy said.

Starlight turned her gaze to Discord.

"Oh, OK! I guess I forgive you all too!"

Starlight nodded and returned her gaze back to the villains.

"You know, I brought Discord here just in case you really WERE reformed. And since it it obvious, we can tell you how to get over your post-reformation guilt."

"I can understand Discord, but why YOU?" Tirek asked.

"Actually, come to think of it, before AND after Starlight reformed my hive, she would tell me things that implied that SHE was once evil," Chrysalis said.

"Yeah... she's correct," Starlight admitted, her face blushing out of embaressment. "I... DID do some PRETTY bad things in the past."

"Would you mind telling us?" Cozy asked.

"I would like to hear as well," Discord said. Suddenly, multiple Discord clones appeared in the room, staring at Starlight with intrest in her story. A few of the clones had popcorn with them.

Starlight seemed hectic (and kinda annoyed at Discord) for a few seconds, before she gave in.

"Ok. I GUESS I could tell you my story."

"SPLENDID!" Discord yelled.

She took a deep breath.

"Ok... here goes..."


Meanwhile...


The hooded ponies finally finished combining their magic to use a spell, allowing them to see different visions of the world Judgement Law had in mind.

"That place seems... interesting," a hooded stallion said. "Some of the creatures look EXACTLY like the ones at that OTHER place."

"Indeed," Judgement said. "But remember, THAT world and the one we SAW are different. For one thing, there is more misery and strife. Animals have lower intellegence, and there is absolutely NO magic!! And some the creatures in THAT world are more violent than the ones in the world we are more familiar with. And that is a GOOD thing. Because if any of them try to attack the villains, the creatures may be recruited due to their twisted nature."

"That seems likely."

Judgement nodded in agreement before he continued.

"However, while seeing the visions, I've recieved a rare magical surge that is somewhat... interesting."

"What is it?" asked the hooded stallion.

"Apparently, many of the dominant creatures in that world are AWARE of the villains' existance, along with the ponies that DEFEATED them."

"Is there something we could do about that?"

"Simple: We put them in a locked building. If anyone finds them, we can only hope it's someone who either HATES them, or doesn't know what they are."

"We can only hope..."

"Another thought popped up in my head as well..."

"What?"

"Those villains could of had the time to PRACTICE controlling their villainous urges while out in town. So no matter HOW hard we tried, they would just brush off our actions like NOTHING! So that's why I decided to turn the banishment plan to plan A!"

The hooded stallion put his hoof on his chin.

"You know... that doesn't sound like a bad idea. Plus, as you've implied, there is a decent population of those creatures that don't even KNOW what they're CAPABLE of!"

"Exactly," replied Judgement. "So here is the plan: we go into Ponyville, but try our best to hide in the shadows. At some poiny, we'll lure that trio somewhere hidden once they have nopony else to watch them. Once they are restrained, physically and magically, we combine our magic to send them to the world that we desire to send them to the place that I'd like to call..."

Judgement took a sip of his drink before finishing his sentence.

"... Planet Earth."
