Ep 36: Sibling Bonding


It is what was heard, the sound of water splashing.

"Ugh, finally, I needed some time to relax," Spike said as he caught his breath.

Spike was swimming in the pool of his house, precisely, in the backyard, he was wearing green swim trunks with a dragon's head drawn, there were 2 weeks left for the last battles of the tournament, he thought about training, but he decided to use that day to rest, like all his friends, who also decided to take the day off, he was relaxing since his parents were out, so today he had the house to himself.

As he swam, he thought about what would be in store for him.

“My next battle is against Button Mash, the first friend I had the same age as me, the two of us have played this game for years, so it will be difficult, but at the same time I am excited, fighting with a friend in the finals, it will be great, and fun, and I'm sure it will be epic."

But at that moment, he stopped and leaned against a corner of the pool.

Spike began to remember his previous battles in the tournament and the powerful opponents he faced, each battle was a lesson learned for him, his battle against Rainbow Dash where he allowed himself to be controlled by his negative emotions.

The battle against Apple Bloom where his heart played an important role, returning to feel what he stopped feeling for Rarity so many years ago.

And the battle against Thorax, which was to defend the honor of his friends, Ember and Smolder, which he achieved and although Thorax was considered an enemy before that, at the end of the battle he became a friend.

Spike looked up at the sun with a smile, he was grateful for those past experiences.

At that moment, Spike heard the sound of a door opening.

"Huh?" Spike looked over and noticed that Twilight Sparkle had walked out into the backyard.

"Hey Spike."

"Oh hey Twilight," Spike greeted her, "I thought you were with the girls or Flash."

"I could say the same for you," Twilight replied, "Why you are not with your friends, or Apple Bloom?"

Spike blushed at the tone with which Twilight mentioned Apple Bloom, but after a few seconds, he replied, "Button Mash decided to lock himself in his house all weekend to play his video games, Rumble's family will get out of town for 3 days, Apple Bloom is with Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo at her clubhouse, Ember and Smolder are busy working at the store and I don't know where Thorax is, although we're not that close right now, I mean, he used to work for the Dark Crystal Knight.”

“Oh wow, everyone seems to be busy, and don't worry about Thorax, I'm sure when this tournament is over, you will forget all the bad things of the past,” Twilight replied with a smile, “And well, the girls are busy, AJ is at Sweet Apple Acres, Sunset, Fluttershy, Pinkie and Rarity are at their part-time jobs while Rainbow Dash is at the skate park and Flash is at a band meeting, so today is a day just for Twilight.”

"Oh," Spike answered, "Welcome to the club I guess."

“Speaking of that, can I join you at the pool? It's really hot today,” Twilight asked him.

Spike nodded, "Of course, it would be nice to have some company."

Twilight smiled, "Thanks Spike."

Spike smiled, but his smile faded as he watched his big sister begin to undress in front of him, causing him to blush.

"Twi, what are you doing?" Spike asked looking away, "You shouldn't take off your clothes in front of me."

But Spike looked back and noticed that Twilight Sparkle had her bathing suit on under her clothes.

"Hehe, you should have seen your face," Twilight said with a laugh by the time she was ready, "I already had it on under my clothes, haha."

"Haha, funny Twi," Spike replied sarcastically.

Spike looked at her, Twilight was wearing a blue strapless bikini, on the left side of the top a pink 6-pointed star was drawn.

“Huh, I didn't know you had a blue bikini,” Spike told her.

"Rarity made it for me," Twilight replied, "Spike, why are you trembling?"

Spike realized that he was trembling a little, "Sorry Twilight, it's just that the last time I saw a woman in a bikini, well, it wasn't pretty at all."

"Oh right, Adagio," Twilight Sparkle said, "Makes sense, she kidnapped you, knocked you out, and forced you to have a beybattle on a water stage while wearing bathing suits."

"Well, at least I won that battle," Spike replied with a relieved smile, "Though I think I'll be staying away from the beach for a while."

Twilight smirked, "Does that mean you're afraid of mermaids now?"

"Ummm, no," Spike said, turning away clearly lying.

"Really?" Twilight asked and then she jumped into the pool.


Twilight swam over to where Spike stood, "Because your expression tells me otherwise."

Spike turned away trying to protect his pride, "I have no idea what you're talking about."

"Hmph, so that's how it's gonna be, huh?" Twilight raised her eyebrow, then she wrapped Spike around her arms, so that he could not escape, "Well, if you won't admit your fear, then you won't mind having a mermaid by your side."

Spike gasped and looked up at Twilight, "You wouldn't dare."

An evil smirk grew on Twilight's face. "Try me."

"Please, Twi," Spike shivered, but he couldn't deny that he was smiling, “Don't do it.”

"Then admit it, you're afraid of mermaids," Twilight told him as she made sure Spike didn't escape her arms.

"I won't," Spike yelled as he tried to free himself, but it was useless, his big sister had held him down too well.

"Then you leave me no choice," Twilight Sparkle breathed out and shook her head, and at that moment, she started to tickle her little brother, "I'm sorry it had to be this way, Spike."

"Please….. hahaha….. Twi…" Spike laughed as his big sister tickled him, "Don't do it."

"I am a mermaid and you are my prey," Twilight told him as she continued to tickle him, "Now I will drag you to the bottom of the sea."

“Hahahaha…. Nooooo…"

“Hold your breath,” Twilight told him as she submerged Spike, she had also submerged herself.

Underwater, Twi waited for Spike to start moving, that would be the sign that he would run out of air and at that moment she would decide to surface.

But the plan failed her.

She realized that Spike was keeping calm underwater, the seconds passed and she was beginning to lose her breath, so she had no other choice and surfaced.

Twilight and Spike caught their breath as they left, Spike looked at her with a smile, although he was still exhausted from Twi's tickles, “Ha…. maybe you are a mermaid….. but I am a puffer fish.”

"A puffer fish?" Twilight asked.

“Well, you know, a puffer fish is….” Spike said but Twilight Sparkle cut him off.

"Of course," Twilight exclaimed, "A puffer fish isn't the strongest or the fastest and it's easy prey, like you Spike."

"I didn't mean that part, Twi," Spike pouted.

Twi laughed at Spike's reaction, “Sorry I'm just playing with you, but I do know that puffers can inflate themselves to 3 times their size and they do it to intimidate predators, just like you did with Pharynx. ”

"Hehe," Spike laughed, "I don't know if I could intimidate him."

“Even so,” Twilight continued, “will you admit that you are afraid of mermaids?”

"No," Spike answered.

"Interesting answer, Spike," Twilight told him, "I think you're forgetting that you're still at my mercy, little bro."

Spike remembered that his big sister still had her arms around his waist, meaning he still couldn't get away from her, "Oh no."

"I suppose that…." Twilight continued smiling, "The puffer fish will have more tickles."

Spike gulped, again, it wasn't going to be pretty.

Several minutes passed.

“HAHAHAHAHA….. TWI… STOP….” Spike laughed as Twi kept tickling him.

"I think you know what to say, Spike," Twilight replied.

That made Spike's willpower crack, “OK…. HAHAHA….. I ADMIT IT….. I'M AFRAID OF MERMAIDS.”

Hearing that, Twilight stopped tickling him, "You see, it wasn't that hard."

Spike took long and deep gasps for breath before he finally recovered, “Speak for yourself…. Phew…. You are not the one who was tickled.”

"I guess so," Twilight said, "So how do you feel now, the worst is over."

"To be honest, Twi," Spike replied, "It wasn't that bad, and I think it was fun, I feel like I needed that."

Twilight smiled, "A lot has happened these last few weeks, Spike, a little fun is a healthy thing."

"You're right," Spike admitted with a smile, "Thanks Twi, but next time, let me know if you're going to do something crazy."

"Of course Spike," Twilight replied with a smile, then she kissed his forehead, "How about we relax swimming this time."

Spike nodded, "I can't think of anything better."

The 2 siblings spent the next hour swimming and playing in the pool throwing water at each other.


"Aha," Spike splashed water on Twilight, "And I'm not just a puffer fish, I'm also a sea dragon."


“Then i will keep this water frozen, for all I know, ice kills dragons,” Twilight replied, throwing water at Spike.


"You got that from a video game."


"It's mythology Spike, the logic isnt exact."


After an hour, the 2 siblings had gotten out of the pool, they lay down on some beach chairs they had, and decided to sunbathe.

“Ah, this is relaxing,” Spike said as he lay back sunbathing.

“Tell me about it,” Twilight added as she lay back sunbathing, “This is nice, and the best part is that it's just only you and me.”

"Just like old times, don't you think?" Spike asked.

What Spike asked made Twilight remember her childhood, before moving to Canterlot.

She remembered when she was a little girl, she only had one friend, and that was her little brother, Spike.

Although she also had her older brother Shining Armor, but he did have his group of friends from school, Twilight and Spike weren't very social, so they didn't have any friends in Ponyville.

Spike also remembered, all those nice moments spent by Twilight's side when they lived in Ponyville, he smiled.

The two came back to reality.

"Yeah, and even though we grew up, I wouldn't trade those moments for anything," Twilight said as she extended her arm to Spike.

"Me neither, Twi," Spike held out his arm so the two of them could take the other one hand.

They knew that even though they made friends when they arrived in Canterlot, one thing was clear.

Twilight Sparkle's first friend was Spike.

And Spike's first friend was Twilight Sparkle.

The night had come, so the two of them had put on their pajamas, but before that, they sat down in the living room.

"Spike," Twilight said as she walked over to Spike, "There's something I want to show you."

"What is it, Twi?" Spike asked, but at that moment, Twi backed away.

After a few seconds, she came back.

"It's this," Twi unclenched her fists and Spike saw something he didn't think his sister would have.

It was a beyblade.

"WHOA, TWI, IS THAT…" Spike was nearly speechless.

Twi giggled at her little brother's reaction, but then her smile faded, "I'm surprised you're not mad."

"Huh?" Spike asked, "Why would I be mad?"

“Because of how hypocrit I was.”

"What are you talking about?"

"Spike, since we moved here, Principal Celestia helped me make friends, I was very happy to meet them, but I feel like I forgot about you when I met them," Twilight answered with a tear in her eyes, "I made friends , but you were alone all year before you met Button Mash, then you became interested in beyblade.”

"Twi," Spike placed his hand on his big sister's shoulder.

"You had found a new passion, and you know what I did, I said that was just a silly toy and made fun of you, if I had been a better sister, I would have supported you and maybe even bought one much sooner and so on the 2 of us could have played together, but no, instead I just thought you were crazy, and now that this whole tournament started….”

Twilight wanted to continue, but Spike placed his hands on her cheeks and spoke to her.

“Twilight, look at me,” Spike told her, “you're not a bad sister, you're someone with a heart as big as your brain, we just didn't see eye to eye that time, but that was it, and you should be proud of what you've become for the passing of the years.”

Twi smiled and hugged him, "Thanks Spike, I'm glad you're such a good brother."

The 2 hugged each other for about half a minute until Spike wanted to ask her about the beyblade.

Twi explained that she had bought it at the Beystore after seeing the battle between Flash and Rumble.

Her beyblade was a purple color but the attack ring was navy blue.

"I have to admit, it looks amazing, and it's a BALANCE type just like Emerald Flame," Spike said as he looked at Twilight's beyblade, "And did you give it a name yet?"

"Well, I think it should be called..." Twiligh Sparkle replied as she looked around looking for inspiration for a name, seeing that in her school notebook she had a drawing of a purple unicorn, she thought of a good name, "Harmony Unicorn."

"Whoa, great name," Spike said to which Twilight smiled.

At that moment Spike had an idea, "We should have a beybattle."

Twilight nodded with a smile, "Sure Spike, but, where, there's no beystadium here."

"Actually," Spike said as he pulled out a smaller beystadium from under the couch, "Yes, there is."

"Wait, did you hide a beystadium in there the whole time?"

"Sure, they're all over the house, even in the bathroom," Spike replied.

"Why would you have a beybattle in the bathroom?" Twilight Sparkle asked again.

"Oh, right," Spike responded, feeling a bit silly, "I guess I didn't think it through very well."

“Well, let's ignore that, I want to know what this bad girl is capable of,” Twilight said as she took out her beyblade.

"Thats right," Spike replied, pulling out his beyblade.

He placed it on his launcher, Spike realized that Twilight's launcher was a very simple one, a default one with a weak grip, "I'll make adjustments to your launcher later."

"Thanks Spike," Twilight thanked knowing that Spike's launcher was better.

And then the countdown began.





The siblings launched their beys into the beystadium.

“Come on, Harmony Unicorn,” Twilight yelled, but then she saw her bey stumble, “Wait, be careful.”

"Don't worry Twi, it's your first battle, it's normal that your bey still can't control herself."

Harmony Unicorn was still out of control until she collided with Emerald Flame.


Making it stop.

“Oh no,” Twi said as she picked up her bey.

"Sorry Twi, I think I should have explained it better."

"No, okay, let's have another beybattle," Twilight Sparkle replied with a smile.

"You're right, you learn through experience," Spike said.

And again, they had many more beybattles.





With each beybattle Twi gained more experience and became more skilled.


The 2 continued with their beybattles.

"I thought you would be tired Twi."

"Your joking? I can do this all day, if I could read 10 books in one weekend."

And their battles continued.

A car parked in front of the house.

Out of it came Night Light and Twilight Velvet.

“I bet they'll be surprised we're early,” Velvet said.

"I wonder if they had a party in our absence," added Night Light as he entered the house.

"Oh please Night Light, you know our children wouldn't do that," Velvet told him as she walked into the house.

"You're right, this place looks spotless," Night Light said as he noted that their home was very clean, "But where are Twilight and Spike?"

“Dawwwww, Night Light, look,” Twilight Velvet pointed to one of the couches in the living room.

Night Light turned to see Twilight and Spike fast asleep with Twilight lying on the couch and Spike laying his head on her shoulder, which made him smile.

“They look so adorable,” Velvet said smiling as she took a photo of them with her cell phone.

“I think we should let them rest,” Night Light said to his wife as they retired to their room, “That brings back memories, though.”

In the hallway they saw a picture of a 6-year-old Twilight and a 4-year-old Spike, in the exact same positions they were sleeping.

And without anyone seeing it, the beyblades they had left in the beystadium began to glow, and although they were asleep, somehow, Twi and Spike could feel their energy.

Author's Note:

Well, that was today's chapter.

Honestly, I really like the relationships that Spike has with other characters, both the canon and the headcanon of the fans.

But my favorite will always be the big sister / little brother relationship that Twilight and Spike have. (It reminds me a bit of the one I have with my older sister)

Throughout the original series, I liked how they interacted, and although many said that Twilight was a mother to him, for me she was an older sister with a behavior very motherly, which is admitted in season 9 where Spike is considered her little brother.

That's why I decided to do this chapter, and why Twilight's name is in the tags of this story even though she wasn't a blader at first, she is a very important person in Spike's life.

That's why I decided to write a chapter about them.

Enjoy it.
