Ep 23: A Dragon Blooms

At the Sparkle family home, Spike was in his room.

In the living room, Night Light, Twilight Velvet, and Twilight Sparkle were sitting on the couch as they thought about Spike's situation.

"Spike hasn't come out of his room," Velvet said worriedly.

"What is happening to him?" asked Night Light just as concerned.

Twilight Sparkle thought and told them what she guessed, "Spike, you must be feeling nervous."


"Tomorrow will be his beybattle," Twilight said with a sigh, "And his opponent is Apple Bloom."

“Oh, poor thing,” Velvet said.

"He just started having feelings for Apple Bloom and they're already facing them so soon," said Night Light.

"Sooner or later it would have to happen, though I think it was sooner," Twilight Sparkle said.

At that moment, a cry from Spike was heard, "GYAHHHHH."

“I think this is affecting him more than we thought,” Night Light said as he headed to Spike's room.

"Dawww, honey," Velvet followed Night Light, to which Twilight followed.

Velvet knocked on Spike's door calling, “Honey, are you there? We know how you feel would you let us in.”

But at that moment, Spike's beyblade, Emerald Flame, shot out destroying part of the door, causing everyone to freak out, "AHHHHHHH."

Spike came out of his room, he didn't have his jacket on and he was sweating profusely, "Oh hey, you guys need something."

"Spike, what are you doing?" Twilight Sparkle asked as she picked up the beyblade.

"I'm training, it's not obvious," Spike replied as he picked up his beyblade, "Tomorrow I'm up against Apple Bloom and I know it's going to be a tough battle."

“Oh,” Velvet said, “we thought it would be very difficult for you to have a battle with your girlfriend.”

Spike blushed, "Umm, she's not my girlfriend mom, she's just a friend that I like very much and she's very pretty, kind, nice and….."

Velvet, Night Light, and Twilight smirked at Spike.

"I think I was too obvious," Spike said.

"About time you rediscovered love, lil bro," Twi said as she hugged Spike, "I did worry about you after the whole thing with Rarity."

"Twi, I was just a stupid kid back then, deep down I knew Rarity was impossible."

"And does Apple Bloom know?" asked Night Light.

Spike responded with another question, "Umm, maybe?"

Twilight smiled and walked over to Spike, "Spike, I've heard her and from what AJ tells me, I'm sure she feels the same way about you."

Spike blushed and smiled, "And that's why…"

Spike's smitten look changed to a more determined one and he continued speaking with more confidence, "And that's why I train hard, Apple Bloom won't forgive me if I let my feelings get in the way of this battle, if I don't focus, I'll be insulting her, so I'm going to do my best."

Everyone smiled at Spike's attitude, he had clearly changed for the better, and they couldn't believe it was thanks to a game of spinning tops.

"Well, we wish you the best of luck, show Apple Bloom that you're a man worthy of her," Velvet said, "Maybe you should try to avoid smashing doors, though."

Velvet pointed to the hole in the door because of Spike's bey.

"Oh, sorry mom, I'll fix it," Spike said sheepishly.

The whole family present laughed at that moment.

Meanwhile at Sweet Apple Acres.

The sound of a roof breaking was heard.

“What in tarnation?” Applejack entered the barn and saw Apple Bloom who had launched her beyblade.

“Oh hey sister, we've always talked about repairing the roof right,” Apple Bloom told her with a nervous laugh as she picked up her beyblade, Golden Apple.

"What were you thinking?"

“Because tomorrow is my beybattle against Spike, and I have to be stronger than I already am if I want to stand a chance,” replied Apple Bloom.

AJ's frown faded, "Oh, I guess you must feel bad about facing him so early."

"It can't be helped AJ, but just like him, I'm a blader too, and I won't let my feelings get in the way of this, I'll give it my all, if I don't, I'll dishonor Spike."

AJ smiled at the firmness with which her little sister spoke, but she continued.

"Also, I must become stronger, there is still someone with whom I have unfinished business."

AJ realized what Apple Bloom was planning, "You mean Cozy Glow?"

Apple Bloom nodded, "That witch, what she did to Spike, GRRRR, I'll make myself stronger and when I see her again, I'm going to defeat her."

"I know you will become a powerful blader," Applejack said comforting her little sister, "Right Big Mac?"

Big Mac who entered the barn said, "EEYUP."

But then he saw that the roof of the barn was destroyed.


The next day at Canterlot High.

In the gym, the students were more than excited for the next battle, one in which 2 incredibly powerful bladers would fight.

Celestia: I'm glad you're all up today.

Luna: Of course sister, today's fight promises a lot.

Meanwhile in one of the corridors was Spike with Rumble and Button Mash.

“Remember not to underestimate Apple Bloom,” Button Mash told him.

“And fight with all your might, otherwise you will lose,” Rumble warned him.

“Thanks guys, no matter what, I'll keep my spirits up,” Spike told them as he headed to the gym.

But before leaving, he told them one more thing, "And thanks for being by my side, you two are my best friends."

Rumble and Button Mash smiled upon hearing their friend.

In another part of the corridors was Apple Bloom with Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle.

"Don't let your guard down, Spike's been playing this game longer than we have," Sweetie Belle warned her.

“Which means, even if it's only the second round, this is going to be your toughest battle in this tournament,” Scootaloo told her.

Bloom nodded, "I know," she looked back towards the gym, "But I've come too far to let myself be beaten here, Spike might be strong, but I'm no pushover, besides," she turned to smile back at the two, "I have you two backing me up, thank you for being with me all this years."

Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle smiled as they listened to their friend.

Back in the gym.

Celestia: Now, it's time to introduce the 2 participating bladers.

Luna: In the red corner, our favorite farm girl, a girl just like her beyblade, hard to knock down, she is nice to others, helping them find their vocations, ladies and gentlemen, the mighty apple, Apple Bloom.

Apple Bloom was advancing to the center of the gym.

“YOU CAN DO IT SIS,” Applejack yelled.

“EEEYUUUUPP,” yelled Big Mac.

"GOOD LUCK," yelled Sugar Bell, Big Mac's girlfriend.

Celestia: And in the blue corner, our favorite young artist, a boy whose strength doesn't come from his physique, but from his great intelligence compared to that of his older sister, ladies and gentlemen, harmony dragon, Spike.

“Harmony Dragon?” Spike wondered about that weird nickname as he made his way to the center of the gym.

"COME ON BRO," Twilight Sparkle yelled.

“YOU BETTER NOT LOSE,” Rainbow Dash yelled.

"YOU CAN DO IT, SPIKEY-WIKEY," Rarity yelled.

Luna: I have a question for you two, we have received information that says that you are a couple.

"WHAAAAT?" Spike and Apple Bloom yelled in surprise at the same time.

Celestia: If so, this battle would be poetically beautiful.

Nervous, the 2 looked at each other and as if they had read each other's mind they tried to deny it.

"Hehe, we're just friends."

"Yes only friends."



In the stands Twilight facepalmed upon hearing that, "Who could have been the fool who gave information to the principals."

The mane 6 looked at Rarity who was flustered, "Hehe, I thought I should boost their love."

"Rarity, you embarrassed them in front of the whole school," Twilight told her annoyed.

“Twi's right, I get that young love is cute, but we need to let them take their time and not rush them,” Sunset Shimmer told her.

"I'm sorry girls, especially you Twi, I didn't mean to make your little brother uncomfortable, I shouldn't have said that to the principals."

"Do you feel guilty about what happened years ago?" Fluttershy asked her to which Rarity nodded.

"I was selfish, I always kept Spike by my side to help me with many things, but I never gave him anything in return, and the day he knew that ours would not be possible..."

The girls looked at Rarity with pity.

"I never thought he would love again, so I like that he developed feelings for AJ's little sister."

The girls smiled and hugged her.

"Your intentions were good Rarity," Twilight told her, "But now the decision is Spike's."

Luna: Inspect your opponent's bey.

They showed their bey to the other, but neither took it.

Luna: You should check the opponent's bey to see if it's not rigged.

"Apple Bloom would never do that, I trust her," Spike told him.

"And I trust Spike, he would never cheat to win," said Apple Bloom.

Luna smiled hearing that, it was clear that the two of them were more than friends.

They then placed their beys on their launchers and got into battle stance.

Celestia: If everyone's ready, it's time for the countdown.

"Hope you're ready Spike," Apple Bloom said.

"Let's do this." Spike replied.




And all the students shouted:


At that moment Spike and Apple Bloom launched their beyblades at the beystadium with all their might.

The 2 beys landed on the beystadium, Golden Apple taking center stage while Emerald Flame spun around it.

“Come on Flame,” Spike yelled as Emerald Flame went straight to attack Golden Apple.


Emerald Flame hit Golden Apple but it did not lose balance.

Spike smirked, "Looks like you have good stamina Bloom."

“Golden Apple won't let itself be brought down against anyone,” Apple Bloom replied smirking as well.

Afterwards, the battle continued for a few more seconds.

"Spike's in trouble, he has to attack but Apple Bloom's bey seems immovable," said Rumble.

"I have to think, how can I hit her," Spike thought but was snapped out of his thoughts when Apple Bloom spoke.

“Very slow Spike,” Apple Bloom said as Golden Apple burst out of the center of the beystadium and attacked Emerald Flame sending him flying.


"FLAME," Spike yelled worriedly.

"I'm not done yet, come on Golden Apple, it's time to use your new attack," said Apple Bloom and she yelled, "UPDOWN IMPACT."

“UPDOWN IMPACT?” Twilight asked concerned.

"It's an attack she was practicing yesterday," Applejack said smiling, "It's so powerful it destroyed our barn, Spike may have more experience, but he won't win."

Hearing that, Twilight gave Spike more encouragement, "DON'T GIVE UP, SPIKE."

Golden Apple launched from a corner like a skateboarder on a ramp, and used the momentum to jump towards where Emeradl Flame was.

“ATTACK,” Apple Bloom yelled.


“FLAMEEEE,” Spike yelled worriedly.

Emerald Flame flew out of the beystadium, miraculously, it didn't burst.

“Tchh, I manage to hold on,” Apple Bloom frowned.

Celestia: Ring out.

Luna: With that we have a score of 1-0 in favor of Apple Bloom.

Celestia: Can Spike get through this?

Luna: Or will Apple Bloom manage to defeat the dragon?

Spike picked up his beyblade then looked at Apple Bloom with a smile.

“Don't think I'll let you win,” Apple Bloom said with a smile.

"You're smart," Spike told her.

"Well, I try," Apple Bloom replied.

"Are they... flirting?" Trixie asked creeped out.

"Looks like it." Derpy agreed.

“I can't afford to lose,” Spike said as he placed Emerald Flame back on his launcher.

“Then you'll have to go through me if you want victory,” Apple Bloom told her as she placed Golden Apple on her launcher.

Celestia: It looks like our contestants are ready for the next round.

Luna: Countdown time.


And all the students shouted.


But before launching her beyblade, Apple Bloom noticed green flames coming out of Spike's launcher.

"It can't be," said Apple Bloom.

"What is Spike doing?" AJ asked concerned.

Twilight replied with a smile, "Your sister wasn't the only one who trained for this."

“LET IT RIP FLAME,” Spike yelled, and Emerald Flame was shot into the beystadium so fast it was engulfed in green flames.

“LET IT RIP,” Apple Bloom yelled as she threw Golden Apple harder, hitting the beystadium floor, leaving a crack.

"Apple Bloom, I hope you fight with all your might, because you will face the power of my new technique," Spike told her.

Apple Bloom just smiled, definitely the battle would be more interesting.

Author's Note:

I still don't know how to handle love in my fics, but I like it when 2 lovers compete with each other and take it seriously instead of being sad and not wanting to participate, so I hope everything goes well.
