Chapter 2: Realizing What We Become...

So...so warm...this feeling...so nostalgic.

"Please, look at me."

"This feeling...this feeling of someone loving me and holding me when I said those words...

"I don't want you to hate me."

"I don't want to forget you."

Please stop looking away from me. I'm not perfect...

"Please, Braver. Just once, say my name and smile at me."

"You're my only friend, the only one who sees me."

... I love you... I gave you all my love.

So wh y?

Why can't I have a chance?

Why do you keep forgetting me?

Why am I not enough for you?

You're all I have and all I want. the only one for me...

...don't leave me ...or I'll break...

...I'll scatter...

"Dawn, I'm right here."

Both Dawn's looked up and saw Braver smiling—not the others but them; she was reaching out to them.

"Its okay. You're my friend. My best friend I won't ever forget you."

Dawn's eyes went wide.

"Braver..."


Within the darkness of the void ocean, Kemonomimi Dawn grabbed the window and looked at her pony self, as if she were being loved by Braver. She started to cry.

"Keep loving her! Please! Don't let her go!" cried Dawn as she started to break down in tears. "She needs someone to love her and hold her! Protect her and help her when no one else will. Don't let her end up like me! Give her a chance!"

Flashes of her memories filled the void with water; it was her life; it was her meeting...

"I lost my rainbow light—my very reason to rise like a morning dawn every day—but I won't let the same happen to her! Love her, protect her, and keep her safe!"

Soon the memories stopped as they froze on one memory. She looked down, and she clutched the prism window harder, as the memory was covered in rainbow slime as it was oozing out of her chest.


"You promised! Don't forget it!" Dawn looked at the window and smiled, as rainbow tears came oozing out of her eyes. "Don't break! Don't break her! Make sure she lives a happy life, no matter what. Love her. Always be by her side."

She slid down on the window, feeling her chest hurting, as more colorful slime came out of her hole "Don't leave her alone. She will be a good lover to you... She will make you so happy, as you did for me," Dawn kept watching this universe while in great pain.


"It's warm...and wet?" thought Blitz, who was in her human form, as she opened her eyes and could see she was in Braver's bedroom in the library. After what happened, she was allowed to stay at Braver's home, as Braver needed her. She turned and could see the broken wall was covered with a blanket. She sat up from the hay bed and felt something wet between her legs, which she quickly turned red.

"No! I haven't wet the bed in years!" shouted Blitz within her mind as she pulled the cover off and sigh with relief as she saw Braver sleeping on her lower half and her mane was in slime form and oozing on her. She couldn't help but giggle at how cute her sister was. "You are such a cutie."

Blitz got up and went to the bathroom, and she could see she was covered in Braver slime. It was dark black with bits of light blue and didn't stain her clothes; it was just a bit slimy and sticky. She looked at it, then back at Braver and back to her finger. She couldn't help but lick some of it and taste how sweet it was.

Blitz laugh a bit as she turned to her sister "Black berry with blue berry...huh... Braver, you're so delicious."

"I love you too, Blitz," whispered Braver as she flipped over "We'll always be one now."

Blitz quickly sighed, "Sister complex dummy."

Blitz cleaned herself and could see it was morning. She went and picked up the blanket and covered Braver, as she was sleeping soundly. She looked out the huge window—well, hole—and could see the town as ponies and creatures were waking up and starting their day. This place is called New Ponyville as she remembered it. She walked away, got her running leggings and shoes, and was heading to take a shower, but was suddenly tackled by Braver and fell into the tub.

"MORNING LITTLE SISTER!" shouted Braver

"AHHH! Get off me! YOU'RE ALL WET!" screamed Blitz, who was trying to push her sister off.

"Hahaha, come on, let's wash together!" laughed Braver

"No way, it's weird!" cried Blitz, who was struggling in the tight bathroom.

Braver puff her cheeks and said "Its not! Little fillies do it all the time!"

"B-Braver, get off me! It's not funny!" Blitz pulled her sister cheeks, hoping she would let go but her cheeks just became slime and oozed all over her.

"You're right, it's not. Because it's not a joke," Braver fully turned into her slime form, giving off an evil vibe as she held up a bath sponge. "Now, hold still, little sister, as I scrub you clean!"

"NOOOOOOO! BRAVERRRR!" screamed Blitz as she was fighting off Braver slime from getting her naked.


"What the hay was that?" thought Luster Dawn as she was getting ready for the day. She looked out her door and could hear screams coming from up the stairs "Oh, Braver and her sister? What are they doing? It sounds like someone is being eaten alive," Dawn closed her bedroom door and headed up stairs to check on them.

"You are such a perv!" shouted Blitz as she was quickly putting on her clothes, also running away from Braver, who was chasing her as a blob of slime with a creepy face on it.

"But you need to wash in your ears!" cried Braver.

"I can do that myself!" cried back Blitz, who ran around the library, dodging the slime attacks as Braver was spitting at her.

"What the hay is going on?" Dawn watched all this going on as she was in the stairway, seeing the slime hitting the walls but the slime quickly returned to its master like it was alive. Heck, one even waved at Dawn before leaving.

Brave turned and saw Dawn and waved at her as well as she said "I'm washing my little sister's ears! It's my job as her big sister!"

"Get off meee!" screamed Blitz, who was quickly jumping away from Braver slime and landing on top of books, only to slide off the bookcase and crash onto the floor, only for Braver to quickly chase her down as Blitz jumped up and ran off.

"Are they really sisters?" thought Dawn, who was watching all this with an emotionless face.

"Ahhh! Get away from me!" Blitz was being chased, only to be quickly caught by Braver's tail and thrown to the ground as Braver pinned her down and quickly turned back to her pony form and closer to Blitz's face.

"Got ya! Now stay still!" smiled Braver, as she wet the sponge with her slime

"Noooo! Let me gooo!" Blitz was kicking her legs and trying to break free.

"You two are so noisy," sighed Dawn as she walked over to them.

"Dawn! You're here!" happily said Braver as her head made a 360-degree turn to meet her, which didn't freak her out, again being use to Braver over the years but she did froze for a second, smiled, and returned, walking to her.

"So, what's going on? What was all the noise?" asked Dawn

"Nothing," answered Blitz as she pushed her sister off and got up.

"Well, it didn't sound like anything. It sounded like someone was being murdered," replied Dawn.

"Hahaha, that was me screaming from a scary siscon," nervously replied Blitz as she backed away, as Braver slowly turned to her and had the evil smile again.

"A what?" asked Dawn, who never heard that word before "Siscon?"

"Nothing; we need to leave!" replied Blitz, who turned and ran out of the library.

Braver turned her head and then her body back to Dawn and explained what a siscon is to her.

"Oh, okay..." Dawn walked past Braver, cleaning up the mess, away from Braver sight and revealing her anger in her eyes as she learned what the word meant. She's simply jealous.

"Why didn't you stop her?" asked Braver.

"Huh?" answer Dawn, not facing her.

"Stop her from leaving, silly." Braver started to help with the mess that she created, picking up the books.

"You have four legs, don't you?" replied Dawn in a very cold tone.

Braver look at her legs and giggle as she look back up "Oh, right! I do!"

"Hey, Braver, can I ask you something?" asked Dawn

"Sure, anything." replied Braver.

"Why is Blitz acting so coldly towards you?" asked Dawn, still not facing Braver.

"What?"

"Well, I'm not going to deny it. She has been acting mean to you and has been ignoring your love." answered Dawn

Braver pushed up a bookshelf and fixed it "It's a sibling thing! She's just hated it when her big sister loves her so much!"

"Hmm..." replied Dawn.

"Something the matter, Dawn? You don't seem happy."

Braver was cleaning the room alone, never realizing that Dawn hadn't moved once from her spot.

"I'm just...confuse. You are giving her so much love, yet she's rejecting it. I would never do that to you. I'll gladly take it all! You're my one and only friend, after all. I would never treat you like trash," replied Dawn, with an evil smile, showing her true colors.

"Hehe, its a twin thing, Dawn. Don't worry, I'm sure she will come around."

"You know I love you, right? My bestest and only friend!"

"I know, and I love you too!"

"And you would always love me, no matter what?"

"Of course!"

"Would you ever stop loving me?"

"Nope, not even death will do us part."

"Oh, Braver."

"Dawn?" asked Braver as she turned around, seeing Dawn just standing there.

"You are my whole world."

"And your mine...are you okay?"

"I will be soon..." Dawn turned around, giving Braver a bright smile. "Just fixing my mane with this mirror." she said, revealing a small mirror she summoned with her magic.

"Oh, okay. Hey, you don't mind if you hold down the fort for today... I have to be somewhere today. I promise, I'll make it up to you. I'm so sorry, I can't stay with you today." explained Braver

"Oh, no worries, Braver. I'll take care of the library." answered Dawn

"You are the best friend I could ask for!" cheered Braver as she jumped on Dawn, hugged her, and nuzzled her cheek.

"Thanks, I love you."

"Love you more."

"I love you most."

"I love you more than most!"

"Then I must love you more than anything else," whispered Dawn as she hugged her back, never wanting the hug to end.

"Hehe, you're so silly, Dawn. I love you so much." whispered Braver

"Me too."

"You know, I'm so glad I'm friends with you, Dawn."

"Same. You're the only friend I have."

"Well, I hope we can make more soon."

"No. You have me. That's all you need. Me," thought Dawn, hugging tighter.

"I'm so happy, I can't stop smiling!"

"Yeah, me too."

Braver. as a slime, pass through Dawn's grip, hurry over to the door, and wave goodbye to her.

"Bye! See you later, Dawn!" shouted Braver

"Goodbye," replied Dawn, who didn't wave and just stared at her.

Braver quickly closed the door and ran off to catch up with Blitz, who clearly created a crowd because no one had ever seen a human before.

Dawn stared at the door for a long time, never blinking. She rose her mirror, and without noticing, her other self was pounding the glass surface, begging her to stop but also clutching her chest.

"I'll scatter it—all of them, all the friends you made, all the family love you have—I'll scatter it and make you break. It's the only way. for me to have you, as you will need me. Only me."

Her kemonomimi counter part started to punch the glass surface and start screaming, but it was useless; no one could see her.

"I love her. I truly do. But I won't stand by and let anyone come between us. I'll shatter her. She'll never leave me if she can't leave at all."

The mirror was shattered by her magic, and Dawn just smiled as she walked away.


Within the sea of the white void, the other Dawn kept pounding the glass window and trying to get out and save herself.

"Please! Stop it! She will be hurt! She will lose everyone, and she will be alone and broken! Please! Listen to me!" cried Dawn, trying to break the window and trying to reach her pony self.

She stopped as she placed her head on the glass and started sobbing...until her chest started to pour out more rainbow liquid, and her sobs went from crying to laughter, and her eyes were wide and full of madness as dark covered her whole body

"She will lose everything and be all alone. I won't let anyone take her away from me. I found them again! She is mine! ALL MINE!" laughed Dawn as the rainbow liquid started to fill the endless sea of void.


Back in town, Blitz was back in her pony form as she had enough of the town folks annoying her as they're grouping up at her. Braver was super happy, as she was proudly showing off her little sister to everyone that came near.

"SHE'S MY SISTER!" cheered Braver, showing off a nervous Blitz.

"Please, stop it," whined Blitz, hating the attention.

"And look how cute she is!"

"Please, stop. Ponies and other creatures are staring."

"Isn't my sister the best?"

"Braver, please."

"She's the cutest pony, ever!"

"You're embarrassing me," said Blitz as she was using her wings to hide her face.

"Aww, Blitz. Why so shy?" asked Braver, hugging her.

"I hate the attention."

"Don't worry, everyone will get used to you. Like they are with me."

Blitz just wanted to leave and head back to the castle like what was planned, but Braver wanted to walk out of town first, and she couldn't say no to her; she wanted to spend time with her as well.

"Oh, oh, look. A cafe; let's go there and have lunch together," suggested Braver, pulling Blitz.

"It's still morning. When we come back." said Blitz, pulling her back by the tail.

"I'm hungry," whined Braver, still pulling her.

Blitz, still pulling her back by the tail "We will eat at the castle."

"I want a milkshake."

"We will have breakfast soon."

"I want one now!"

"Braver..." sighed Blitz, turning to her and seeing her as a long streak of slime, as her upper body was still back at the cafe. Soon, town folks started to slip on the slime as they walked by, not noticing it.

"Please. Just one. It will be really quick. Please!" shouted Braver from afar.

Blitz sighed "Fine, fine," she walked up to her and seeing the slime returning to its master.

"Yay! Blitz the best!" cheered Braver as the slime started to pull her sister in.

"Braver, stop it," said Blitz, but she wasn't fighting back; she pretty much gave up.

"But I'm so happy," smiled Braver as she sat at the table.

"I can tell, but your slime is spilling out," replied Blitz as she saw a dragon waitress tripping over the slime and tossing the drinks on a couple.

"Oh, whoops. Sorry." blushed Braver as she scooped her slime back up and into her.

"Sorry about that." apologized Blitz.

"It's alright, miss. It happens. Classic Braver," smiled the waitress as she left.

"So, what will you like?" asked Blitz, opening the menu.

"Hmmm, how about this one? You'll enjoy it! I'm buying!"

Blitz nodded and watched as Braver called the waitress from before and ordered the drinks. Though Blitz was confused, the waitress was blushing and smiling as she left.

"Is it just me, or does that waitress like you?" asked Blitz, pointing at her.

"Hmmm, what do you mean?"


"Like...like."

"Like, like? oh like a friend?" answered Braver with a happy smile.

"...no, like 'love you'."

"Ooooh...family love?"

"No, more like a lover, love."

"A what?" asked Braver as she tipped her head to the side, not knowing what Blitz was trying to tell her.

"You don't know what love is?"

Before Braver could answer, the waitress returned and placed a huge milk shake on the table. She turned to Blitz and gave her a thumbs up, confusing her until she saw a heart-shaped straw in the middle of the shake. The dragon waitress quickly ran off, giggling.

"...what is this?" asked Blitz, seeing the heart-shaped straw.

"It's a milkshake with 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream, 4 strawberries, 5 cherries, a lot of sugar, and a special love heart straw," answered Braver with a smile.

Blitz looked at the mountain of ice cream "This is not a milkshake. This is a drink of diabetes,"

"Hehe, I know, isn't it cute? I always wanted to buy it, but it's for couples only! But you are here now! We can do a couple things too! We're sisters!"

"Sis-"

"Drink up!"

"But-"

"Drink up! Drink up! Drink up!" chanted Braver, cheering her sister on.

"..."

"Drink up! Drink up! DRINK UP!" chanted Braver as she gave off an evil look and pounded the table hard "Sister always shares! Let's drink it together!"

"Braver, can't we just..."

"Nope! It's for a couple only! So, you have to drink it with me, your sister! Now, drink it or I'll force you!"

Blitz started to sweat as her sister was giving her the evil eye, and she slowly took a sip, as did her sister, and the milkshake was going down slowly. Soon, Braver pulled something out of her slime, and it was a camera. She took a picture of them drinking like a cute couple.

"Nope, I'm out," quickly said Blitz as she stood up and walked away, ignoring her sister's cries to come back.

"Hey, where are you going?" cried Braver, following after her.

"Anywhere but there," replied Blitz, looking for an escape.

"But why?!"

"I'm not doing a couple thing with my sister! Stop being a siscon!"

"But this is so cute."

"No, it's not."

Braver got a bit mad at her and angrily told her "Why are you being so stubborn?"

"Because it's weird."

"It's not weird!"

"To me, it is!" Blitz turned to her, with a upset look on her face but also blushing.

Braver held up the drink and shaking "Come on, Blitz."

"No."

"Come on!"

"Stop."

"Come on, Bli-"

"...you okay?" simply asked Blitz, with a very worried tone in her voice, catching Braver off guard.

"...huh?"

"Are you okay, Braver?" asked Blitz again, as she walked up to her.

"Of course I am. Why wouldn't I?" Braver started to melt as she smiled at her.

Blitz put her hoof on her sister's cheek and gave her a worry smile "Don't lie to me. not after what happened last night. Talk to me. Are you scared for today? Afraid of the session with my mom?"

"..."

"If so, don't worry. She's not that bad. She got her license and has been helping one of my friends back in my universe. She got it also to help me, to help me if I ever get triggered and she needed to understand what to do when it happens."

"..."

"I'm not sure if you're the type to like that kind of stuff or if it even exists here, but it helps. Trust me, I had my first session with her years ago when I got triggered, and, well, it's embarrassing to talk about since I'm telling my mom everything, but she didn't act like my mom; she acted like a real professional therapist who just listened to me and made sure I didn't harm myself. That's what she will do with you, Braver. Make sure you don't hurt yourself, and make sure you're happy and help deal with...you know..."

Blitz took the drink and set it down. She waited for her sister to say something to her "Come on, say something. Anything,"

"...you're right."

"Huh?"

"You're right about me... I'm...scared. Very scared, in truth, Blitz. I don't want to have a therapy session. I hate the idea of telling my life to someone, and that person has seen what I did in the past. Worse, it's another mommy."

"...other mother? You see Twilah as a mom?"

"Well, yeah, she's mom after all. It's like Discord said to everyone that day when he showed them their other prime selves. 'The multiverse is the place where anything can happen. No matter how far you change—in name, body, or whatever—it's still the same person. You are still the same, deep, deep down inside. It's always you.', remember that? Mommy is always mommy!" explained Braver as tears started rolling down her face and onto her body, forming back into her.

Blitz smiled, hugged her, and let her cry.

"Thanks, sis. Thanks for helping me through this. Thanks for understanding me. Thank you..."

"Come on, it's okay. You're alright, Braver," smiled Blitz as she rubbed her sister's head.

"I'm a bad twin... I shouldn't be making you worry."

"No, you're not. You're not bad. You're a great sister."

"I am?"

"Of course."

Braver returned to her happy self, picked up the drink, and finally started to leave with Blitz and head off to the castle.


"Spike, can you move the patient chair over here?" asked Twilah, still in her anthro form.

"Gotcha, Twi," answered Spike as he moved the chair with ease after growing up so big and well built.

"Spike, can you move the desk to the right? It's off center now with the patient chair," asked Twilight as she was checking everything was well placed, as this old storage room is being used as a therapy room for her daughter.

"Sure." answered Spike again, as he moved the desk.

Dash walked in and over to Twilight, who was still triple checking everything "Twi, it's fine. Everything looks fine."

"You're right. It's perfect," replied Twilight.

"No, the picture is off center as well. Spike?"

"On it, Twilight," answered Spike, who was putting something away and hurried over to the picture.

"I'm Twilah." Twilah quickly corrected Spike.

"Oh, sorry. It's just that you two are alike and even sound alike. I can't help but get the wrong name."

"I know, right. I mean, I can't even tell my own wife from Twilah," jokey reply Dash as she laughed

"What do you mean by that?"

"Just what I mean, sweetheart. I can't tell which one is you. Your both the same to me," simply answered Dash, kissing Twilight on the check.

"Dash, she's not an nothing like me. You can easily tell us a part," replied Twilight with a deadpan look and tone.

"True." Dash started to fell like she was about to start something and started to sweating.

"Dash, are you saying you can't tell me or your wife a part?" asked Twilah with an upset look.

"What! Of course, not. I'm just playing around, Twilight. I mean, Twilah," corrected Dash, as she started to sweat as she felt Twilight's dagger glare.

Dashie walked in with the potted plants and knew where to leave them, as she knows her girlfriend very well.

"Dashie, move the plant to the other side; it will be a better fit over there."

"Alright, love."

Dashie picked up the pot but heard an upset cough from behind her. She turned and saw Twilah tapping her foot "...What's wrong?" asked Dashie, as she ignored Dash,who was behind Twilah and was waving no at her but face palm as she heard her talk.

"You spoke to me." Twilight walked up to Twilah side, also little upset.

"Sorry?"

"Even you can't tell us apart?" questioned Twilah, also little upset.

"What?"

"You two can't really tell us apart."

"I'm sure I can...right Dash!" angry shouted Dashie as she saw Dash trying to leave the room and pulled her back inside.

Dash flew to her face and whispered, "Dude! WHY!?"

"If I'm going down, I'm taking you with me! I know you started this!" whispered Dashie back.

"I did not."

Spike wasn't sure what to do. Should he leave or stay? He was told to get everything ready, but both Twilight's told him to stay. So he stayed in the corner...and watched the poor Dash's suffer.

"Okay, we're going to play a little game. You two ready?" asked both Twilight's at the same time.

"No," said both Dash's, sweating.

"Good. Turn around." both mares asked.

Dash and Dashie did what they were told and were faced with a wall.

"You both have 10 seconds to guess who's talking to you. Twilight or Twilah If you fail three times, we're not talking to you for a week." both said at the same time.

"..."

"And no cheating either. got it?"

"Yes..."

"Let's start!"

"Okay, we're ready!" said Dash and Dashie, still facing the wall.

"Okay, here goes. Who's ready for a fun time in bed later?"

"..."

Both Dash and Dashie started to sweat a storm when they heard that. They were too scared to answer, but they had to.

"Can't be Twilight; she doesn't have the guts to say that. It's Twilah!" Dash answered, still freaking out but hopeful.

"Oh, like how you don't have the guts to say those words to me? It was me, by the way." answered Twilight, sounding angry.

Dash started to sweating more as she got it wrong "I'm sorry!"

"Strike one for Dash. Spike, put that down."

"Right Twil-" Spike quickly stopped as he looked up, seeing both mares glaring at him, realizing he almost stepped on a land mine. "Right. Dash has 1 strike."

Twilight and Twilah both talked, as it sounded like they were enjoying this "Now, the next one."

"Here goes. I love it when you run. It turns me on."

"..."

"Dashie, are you blushing?"

"NO! IT'S NOT THAT; YOU'RE NOT MEANT TO SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT WITH OTHERS AROUND, TWILAH!"

"You had it; it was me, but I wasn't asking you that question. Dashie got a strike." angrily said Twilah

"I'm sorry!" shouted Dashie, blushing and sweating a storm.

"Here goes. When we first met, I knew you were the one for me."

"..."

"It's Twilah. There's no way Twilight can say that."

"Sorry, Dash, but it was Twilight. Strike 2 for Dash."

"What!? It was Twilight!" shouted Dash as she turned around, seeing Twilight blushing and mad at her.

"Dude, really?" asked Dashie, punching Dash on the shoulder.

"What? How did you know?"

"Because Twilah isn't the type to say something like that, it should be more like, 'When we first met, you were the one who saved me. Thank you.', right?" asked Dashie, turning to her Twilight

"You are right," answered Twilah, sounding happy and blushing.

Dash, not believing this "What? Really?"

Twilight looked at her counterpart and at Dashie. She started to feel jealous of the two "Okay, turn around.".

Both girls turned around.

"I love you..."

"..."
"..."

Both girls had no idea who said it. They looked at each other, realizing they're so freaking screwed.

"You both are terrible at this. How can't you not tell us a part? Even our kids can. I'm not letting you touch me."

"..."
"..."

Both girls knew that question was not only a trap but also a way out. They had to guess, so they guessed.

"Twilight!" answered both at the same time.

"Correct, it was Twilight."

"Yes!" cheered Dash and Dashie, happily.

"But both of you have two strikes," Twilah gave Dashie a glare of death "So, you can't figure it was me, huh?"

Dashie gulped as she heard Twilah's upset voice.

"Okay, turn around."

The girls turned around and faced the wall again.

"Here goes."

"When you said 'I love you', it filled me with a feeling I had never felt before. I was so happy... I didn't care if I died right then and there."

Dashie tried to guess, but she noticed Dash just sitting there, looking sad.

"Dash? What's wrong?" asked Dashie.

"I'm sorry." simply said Dash as she turned around, seeing Twilight looking away, looking hurt.

Twilah and Dashie were confused, even more so as Spike said Dash had three strikes, making her the loser. Before they could say anything to them, they could hear the girls coming down the hall, causing everyone to forget what just happened and wait for the girls to come in, which was Braver tackle hugging Dash to the ground.

"MOM!" shouted Braver.

"Oof!"

Braver was wagging her tail like a dog and rubbing her cheek against her mother's cheek "Hello, sweetie," Dash is happy to see her daughter being her normal stuff.

"Braver, honey. Get off your mother." smiled Twilight as she used her magic to pull her off, setting her in front of Twilah. "Honey. Twilah is going to help you until we find a way to get her and her family back home, which, by the way, we need to talk about, but not now, so don't worry. Alright."

"Sure..." answered Braver as her ears dripped down and her body melted for a bit.

Twilah bent down and looked into Braver's eyes, asking her a few questions "You've been a good girl, Braver?"

"Yup!," answered Braver.

"Nothing is making you feel uncomfortable."

"Nope!"

"You know, your mom and mommy love you very much. Okay?"

"Yup!"

"You don't have to worry. You are safe here."

"I know," whispered Braver, returning to normal.

"Good. Before we start, everything that is said here stays here, okay? Unless you want to hurt yourself, others, or your family. So, unless they need to know something very important, like self harm or other important things, nothing is leaving this room, but don't worry; if they ask me for stuff during the session, I won't tell them."

"Okay."

Twilah stood up and showed her the long chair to lay on, asking her to sit. As she sat down, everyone started to leave, making her scared.

"Hey! Wait! Where are you going? You can't just leave! What's going on?"shouted Braver

"It's okay, sis. This is how things go. Relax, okay?" Blitz said, walking back into the room and sitting next to her.

"B-Blitz, why is everyone leaving?"

"It's because we can't know what you tell my mom. What you say here stays between you and her, remember? It's the rules."

"I don't understand."

"Don't worry about it. You'll be okay. I promise. Just do your best."

"Okay."

Blitz turned around and walked out with the others, shutting the door behind her. leaving Braver with Blitz's mom.

"Well, hello, Braver. I'm Twilah Finkelstein. Nice to meet you." kindly said Twilah as she sat in the chair right next to Braver.

"Nice to meet you too."

"How are you feeling? Is there anything I should be concerned about?"

"Not really. Just a little nervous."

"Alright. I know you might have some questions. So, let's start there. I'll answer what I can. Okay?"

"Okay."

"Good. Now, what do you want to know?"

"OH! How was it like raising Blitz?" shouted Braver, standing up, all excited.

"W-what!" replied Twilah, catching her off guard by the question.

"Yeah! How did you raise Blitz?"

"Well, it was a lot of hard work and..."

"Like, did you teach her how to use her powers, like flying and changing form?"

"Well, we taught her the basics as best we could since we saw your mother's memories and..."

"Like, what did you do?"

Twilah stopped her by raising her hand up to her mouth "Braver, when I said questions, I meant what we were going to do here today. We can talk about Blitz after this, okay?"

"Okay," replied Braver, sitting back down, all sad

"Good. Let's start with the CBT."

"What's that?"

"CBT stands for cognitive behavioral therapy. It's a psychotherapy treatment used to relieve or change troublesome thoughts and feelings."

"That's...a mouthful."

"I'll try to make things simple for you. Basically, this is how I can help you. With what we will talk about here, will it help you to be a better pony? Slime? Both!"

"That's why you wanted everyone to leave. So, it was to make me feel comfortable talking about personal things. Like Blitz was saying."

"That's correct."

"That's actually a smart way to help others. I like it."

"Thank you. Alright, Braver. First, I need to know more about you before I can help you."

"Alright."

"Okay. First question: have you ever had a nightmare before?"

"Of course."

"And can you describe this nightmare to me?"

"I dreamt that I was back in my mommy's garden. She was happy; she was alive. Even when she told me she loved me, she was dying again, right in front of me. I was screaming that I was sorry. I killed her again! I KILLED HER AGAIN!" shouted Braver as she broke down crying.

"There, there. It's okay. It's just a dream," replied Twilah, petting her and held her close.

Braver cried and cried as she cried into her chest, hugging her back. She knew it was from the past, when Breaker killed Nightfall that night, as Braver was only protecting Blitz as Nightfall hurt them after seeing their slime form for the first time. Nightfall only did that as her fear took over. She saw her memories; she regretted them, like how Twilight regretted hurting Braver last night.

"I killed her," sobbed Braver.

"Shh...shhh. Its alright. Its okay. You didn't mean too."

"But I did! She was scared of 'us' and I only wanted to protect Blitz from the pain she felt on her body but also her heart. It was hurting me too."

"What are you talking about, honey?"

"When mommy was alive, she was kind and loving to Blitz. I saw all the love they gave her as I watched within Blitz. I felt jealous, but yet, I was happy for her. She is me, after all. I wanted to protect her, never seeing her being hurt, so I started to reach out to her and talk to her. To the point, we started to become one on that night. Mommy, I'm sorry. I'm sorry."

"Braver, can you tell me a few things about what you've been through?"

"W-what did I go through? What do you mean?"

"Like, before meeting your mom's? Like, where your 'slime' came from? Prime Discord talked about it. Do you know where your from?"

"Oh, that."

"Yes, that."

"I don't want to talk about that."

"That's okay. Let's move onto the next part."

"Okay."

"Good."

Twilah pulled out her book and started to write a few things as Braver sat up and looked at her.

"Hey, Twilah."

"Yes."

"Do you love Blitz?"

"Of course. More than anything."

"Did you hurt her?"

"Excuse me?" said Twilah, looking at her with a bit of anger.

"Blitz. Did you ever hurt her? Like, did you hit her when she was bad or yell at her when she didn't do her homework?"

"Oh...no, never. Dashie was always the one to help her with homework and other things. She never did that; trust me."

"You never helped her with anything? You never did anything to help her?"

"I did. I was the one who took her to the doctors for her shots and the dentist when her teeth were hurting her."

"No, I mean, be around her. like spending time with her. Reading her a book, doing arts and crafts together, or taking her out to play"

"Well, I was busy working."

"Too busy?"

"Yeah."

"So, you're the breadwinner."

"T-That's correct."

"So, how many jobs do you work at?"

"O-One."

"One?"

"Y-yeah...."

"Hmmm...okay. Mommy is a princess! It's her one job as well! Even though she's ruling over Equestria, she's always made time for me! even when I don't ask. You two are truly alike!"

"That's great; we're each other's counterparts after all!" stuttered Twilah, as she realized Twilight was being the better mom here, as they were nothing alike in that department.

"I'm glad. Sorry for asking! Just wanted to check if my sister was in good hands with you, momma!" Braver smiled at her, which took Twilah off guard again as she heard Braver call her 'momma'.

"It's alright. We're just getting started, okay? Let's get back to it." Twilah, fixed her glasses.

"Okay. I'll answer anything."

"Good. Now, when did the dreams start to happen?"

"Oh, it was when mommy taught me to fly when I came to live here!"

"You mean, Dash, right? Can you start calling them by their names? It will be easier to keep track," asked Twilah as she was writing stuff down, and Braver nodded. "So, can you give me full details that day? The day when you learned to fly?"

"Oh! Yeah!" smiled Braver, nodding as she remembered it all, like it was yesterday. Dash was teaching her how to fly by jumping off a cloud and catching her if she wasn't flying. It went on like that until she was able to fly without falling. Dash was so proud of her! "Dash was smiling at me! She was so happy that I could fly!"

"Good, good. And how did that make you feel, Braver?"

"Oh, I felt so happy!"

"Why did it make you happy, Braver?"

Braver was quiet as her eyes went wide, making Twilah notice this.

"Braver? Are you okay?" asked Twilah, and Braver just looked at her "Braver, please tell me. Why did learning how to fly make you happy?"

"It was the third time... I was facing Mommy again... I was happy...happy that she will kill me," Braver smile as her memory of Dash flashed between Sky, when Sky fought the slime in the kingdom of night and then later, in the kingdom of day.

"Braver!"

"I didn't want to hurt her or anyone anymore... I didn't want to kill her again. I just wanted to make her smile."

"Braver, snap out of it!"

"I DIDN'T WANT TO BURN HER AGAIN!" Braver held her head as her tears fell from her face and the ground rumbled, as a dark aura was around her, with her pony ears and tail fading.

Twilah jumped back and looked at Braver in fear, as Braver's mind was taken over by her past. Twilah quickly wrote something down, nodded to herself, and shouted at Braver.

"IS THAT WHY YOU LOVE HER SO MUCH!? ALWAYS BEING SPOILED BY DASH, LIKE TWILIGHT TOLD ME! NO, YOU SPOILED HER, RIGHT? AS A WAY TO FORGIVE YOURSELF!" shouted Twilah as the howling noise was getting louder "BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T, THE PAIN YOU AND BLITZ FELT FROM YOUR MOM DEATHS WILL BE REPEATED, RIGHT? THE ONLY WAY YOU COULD STOP IT WAS TO LOVE HER!" shouted Twilah as her voice echo through the room "LOVE HER TO NOT REPEAT HISTORY AND TRY TO GET HER TO LOVE YOU, BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING MORE SCARED IN LIFE, RIGHT!? THAT'S WHY YOU'RE SO ATTACHED TO DASH! YOU'RE LETTING HER IN, BUT, IN REALITY, YOU'RE SCARED OF HER! SCARED OF LOSING HER! SCARED OF LOOSING YOURSELF!" shouted Twilah once again.

"NO!" shouted Braver, crying harder, but her ears and tail started to return as the aura left, making Twilah sigh "No, I'm not scared of her. I'm not," Braver cried as Twilah sat back down and nodded.

"Yes, yes, I know. Now, let's talk about this, huh?" said Twilah as she suddenly heard yelling from outside the door. It was Dash yelling.

"LET ME GO TWILIGHT! Don't you hear her crying! SHE NEEDS US!"

"Dash! Twilah said to not go in there, no matter what happens, unless she calls for us!"

"SCREW THAT!"

Suddenly, Dash broke through the doors. She was being held down by Twilight's magic, but she didn't care; she needed to be there for her daughter.

"I'M HERE, SWEETIE!"

"Mommy!" Braver saw Dash and flew to her, but suddenly saw flashes of Sky, who was slowly being burned alive by her rainbow aura. This caused Braver to fall backwards, screaming, "STAY AWAY! GET AWAY!"

Twilah noticed she was having a panic attack, wrote something down, and shouted to Twilight and Dash.

"Get out now!"

"What?! No, I need to."

"She's having a panic attack; you triggered her! DAMN IT!" shouted Twilah at Dash, as she was enraged by her actions in coming in here.

"But she needs..."

"SHE'S SCARED OF YOU! OUT! NOW!" shouted Twilah with an angry tone, causing Dash to be confused.

Twilight knew she had no choice and teleported Dash away with her. finally leaving Twilah and Braver alone. Dashie and Blitz were outside and saw what happened. Blitz was about to go to her sister, but Dashie stopped her.

"No, you might make it worse. Let mom handle this; trust her."

"Okay," sighed Blitz, as she didn't want to cause anymore problems. She saw her mom shut the doors with her magic.

Back inside the room, Twilah was holding Braver, rocking her back and forth.

"Shhh, its okay, its okay, I'm here, I'm here. It's okay, its okay."

Braver was crying her eyes out and was hugging her.

"I-i-I'm sorry! I'm sorry, mommy, I'm sorry!"

"Shhh, shhh, its okay, it's okay. Let's start the diaphragmatic breathing. Breath in and out. Good, good, again. Breath in...and out."

For a good five minutes, Twilah taught Braver diaphragmatic breathing to calm her nerves and to relax. Braver was starting to feel better, and the aura was fully gone.

"You alright now, sweetie?" asked Twilah, with a smile, causing Braver to smile.

"Yeah, thank you."

"Good, now let's do the progressive muscle relaxation next. I want you to slowly take in a deep breath and exhale slowly."

"Okay, like this?"

"Very good. Now, tense up every muscle in your body and hold for 10 seconds. Then release, and repeat. Keep going until I say so."

Twilah was holding a timer as Braver slowly tensed up her body.

"Tense, 10 seconds. Relax for 5 seconds. Good. Again. Tense, 10 seconds. Relax for 5 seconds."

They kept this up for a good few minutes until Twilah stopped the timer.

"Very good. Now, can you feel your body slowly relax?"

"Yeah, yeah, I can feel it. I feel so much better. Thank you, mommy!" answered Braver, wagging her tail

"Good, now I want you to do this when you start feeling overwhelmed, okay? It will help to reduce your stress and anxiety."

"Okay."

"Now, I'm going to tell you something important, and you're not going to like it, but you need to hear it." Twilah had a serious face, causing Braver to nod "Your feelings are valid. I can't tell you to stop feeling a certain way or try to get rid of those feelings. But I can teach you how to manage those feelings so that they don't take over you."

"You...can? So, it's okay that I love mommy so much?"

"Yes, it's okay. In fact, it's wonderful that you love your mom so much. She loves you too, so much." Twilah smiled, causing Braver to smile as well "You just need to understand that love is a two-way street. You can't love someone else without loving yourself first. If you don't, then you're only going to end up hurting yourself."

"I...don't understand."

"Well, for example, you can't give 100% of yourself to someone else if you're only giving 10% of yourself."

"Oh, I think I get it. If I'm not putting myself first, then I'm not going to be able to put others first. Right?"

"Right. It's very easy to become codependent and lose yourself in a relationship. You have to make sure you're always taking care of yourself before you take care of others."

"Codependent? What's that?"

"It's when you rely on someone else to make you happy. And when you're not with them, you're miserable."

"Oh. So, I should love mommy, but not be too dependent on her."

"Exactly. You need to learn to stand on your own two feet. I mean, four hooves. Wait, two wings? Whatever you get it, right?" asked Twilah as she scratched the back of her head.

"Heh, yeah. I think I do. Thanks, mom."

"Of course. I'm always here for you. Now, let's try this again, okay?"

"Okay."

Twilah sat down in front of Braver and took out her notes.

"Good. Now, let's talk about these flashbacks you're having. Tell me, Why do you think you're having these flashbacks?"

"Um, well, I guess because I'm scared of losing mommy again. Just like when I lost my other mom."

"I see. Tell me, why are you afraid of losing her?"

"I don't want to lose her because I love her. both of them. They're my moms, the ones who saved me. You and the others saved us! I just can't lose them, not again. I don't think I could live with myself if I lost them again. Not when they're the reason I'm here."

"The reason you're here? Do you mean the reason you were created?"

"No, no. I mean, yes, I was created to break things, but that's not it. She's the reason I'm still alive. Again, all of you are the reason we're here. Blitz and I, If it wasn't for you guys, we would've died."

"Oh, Braver, I didn't know you felt that way. But I have to ask, did we really save you? Or did we just bring you back?"

"Huh? What do you mean?"

"Well, yes, you were brought back. But was it because you wanted to be brought back? Or were you forced back?"

"What are you talking about?" asked Braver, seeing Twilah's very upset face.

"Tell me, do you believe in fate?"

"Fate? What's that?"

"Fate. Fate is the concept that everything in the universe happens for a reason. There is a set plan for everything and everyone. that nothing can ever be changed. Do you believe in that?"

"I, um, I don't know. I mean, I know I was created, but was it because I was fated to be born?"

"That's exactly what I'm asking. Someone told us that there were rules in the multiverse—that things were meant to happen, no matter how bad or good they were; it was fate, and we weren't allowed to change anything. Do you believe that?"

"I don't know. It sounds like a lot to take in. I mean, if everything's fated, then does that mean mommy is fated to die?"

"Hmm, well, not necessarily. Remember, fate is just a concept. I believe it's not set in stone. There are plenty of things that happen in life that are outside of our control. We can't predict the future. Like how your mothers came to us and set off everything, bringing all of us to you and Blitz. They fought against fate to save you two. Again, did we really save you? or did we just bring you back by force? Because if the latter is true, then it means we just brought you back from death and made you suffer. Are you suffering, Blitz? ...did we..." Twilah suddenly stopped as she realized she was crying and calling. Braver by her sister's name

"Mommy?"

"I'm sorry, Braver. It's just that I can't bear the thought of making you or Blitz suffer. All of us, if everyone were here right now, we just couldn't handle the thought of losing you two. Your mothers gave everything to bring you back and make sure you lived. You earned this life, but if we made you suffer, it would've all been for nothing."

"Mommy..." whispered Braver as she got up and ran towards the door, causing Twilah to stand up.

"Braver! Wait! Where are you going?"

Braver pushed Blitz into the room, walking back to Twilah.

"Blitz told me she has what I have. We might be suffering, but..." Braver looked behind herself, seeing Blitz confused.

"We're suffering together. That's what we want. If we're going through something, we want to go through it together, not alone. You and everyone saving us weren't for nothing! You did save us. You saved us together. You didn't force us to come back; we came back on our own!" yelled Braver.

"To be with you. both of you. Because we love you!" finished Blitz, as she realized what was going on. She, too, said this to her. "Mom, are you still thinking that?"

Twilah Horn started to flash purple on its own, releasing a memory, maybe it was her element of magic at work?


Twilah started to remember a few years back, as she asked Blitz the question of not really saving them but making them suffer...

"Your mothers gave everything to bring you back and make sure you lived. You earned this life, but if we made you suffer, it would've all been for nothing.Are we making you suffer, sweetie?"

"Mom," said Blitz, as she saw her mom crying as she was sitting in her chair. She didn't know why her mom was acting this way, as she's been like this for a few weeks after having a session with her when she had a bad trigger, and Blitz can't get her to stop.

"Blitz. Tell me, is it wrong that I don't feel like a real mother to you? I just keep thinking that if I hadn't saved you and your sister, none of this would've happened. None of this would've been real. If we didn't save you, then you would be at peace and wouldn't have to deal with me and Dashie. We would've never known you, and we wouldn't be a family. We wouldn't be making you suffer like this. Blitz, sweetie, am I really your mother? ...am I doing more harm than good? I just feel like I'm not being a good mother to you. Am I? No, I know I'm not. I'm the reason you suffer, the reason you have PTSD. If we didn't save you, would it have been better?"

"Mom! Don't say that!" shouted Blitz as she sat up from the long chair.

"Why not? It's the truth. This life isn't what your mother wanted for you. She wanted you to have a good life, not a life of trauma. Maybe, if we hadn't saved you, you would've had a better life in de-"

"Stop! Please, don't say that; please, please stop!" yelled Blitz as she ran into her mother, wrapping her arms around her, crying.

"Please don't leave me. I need you. Please, I don't want you to go! We'll suffer together. That's what I want. If we're going through something, we should go through it together, not alone. You and everyone saving us weren't for nothing! You did save us. You saved us together. You didn't force us to come back; we came back on our own!" cried Blitz, as Twilah remembered her daughter's words as her horn stopped flashing and the memory disappeared.

"To be with you. both of you. Because we love you!" finished Blitz, hugging her mom tightly, as she could feel her mom hugging her tightly.

"I'm sorry, sweetie, Braver. I just realized it's been bothering me for a while now, and I couldn't get rid of it."

"It's okay, mom," whispered Blitz as she just hugged her while Braver looked on, smiling, but Dashie looked upset.

After a few minutes, Twilah was okay again and told Braver they should stop here for today.

"I'm sorry, sweetie, about all of this. I didn't mean for any of this to happen."

"It's okay, Mommy; it helped me... I want to keep doing this. Can we?" asked Braver, with her puppy dog eyes.

Twilah giggled as she said yes, they can do this again in two days, but she lowered herself to her and said, "Listen, Braver, if you feel like a trigger is coming on, you need to tell us or whoever you are with it. No one is going to judge you or hate you. We will understand and help you through it, no matter what. Do you want a safe word? So, we can know if you're in trouble, and be careful what we do or say to you."

Braver nodded as she thought of one.

"Dawn..." blushed Braver.

"Dawn?" said all three.

"Your friend's name? This universe, Dawn? Why?" asked Twilah, confused.

"Because that's when I feel happy, and I don't want to see or hear the bad things, so I'll say her name. She'll make me happy."

Twilah closed her eyes and smiled. "Yup, both of you are twins," thought Twilah as she turned to Blitz, who was smiling, as her daughter's safe word was the same and for the same reason.

Soon, Twilah asked them to head to the garden, as they needed to talk about how to get home and other things. She told them to go ahead while she finished up here. Both girls left, but Dashie stayed behind and shut the door.

"Dashie, why are you?"

"Why didn't you tell me?" simply asked Dashie, as she didn't turn to her, as she was still holding the doorknob.

"...what are you talking about?"

"That, you felt like that!" shouted Dashie as she turned to her, tears in her eyes.

"You think you weren't good for the blitz? You felt her, and Braver was better fucking dead, right? Right?! How could you feel that way? Why, would you think that?" Dashie was crying now.

Twilah was silent, as she just simply stared at her.

"We're a team! We're in it together! We should talk about this! Instead of you keeping it to yourself like that, that's not a team! We're supposed to work together and support each other! I should be there for you, and yet, I didn't even know, until now, that you felt that way!"

"Dashie, you couldn't do anything about it. Besides, it's all in the past."

"What if I could do something? What if I could've stopped it? Or at least, comforted you, or helped you through it?"

"You couldn'-"

"SHUT THE FUCK UP!" screamed Dashie as she stood there, clutching her fist. Twilah was very surprised by this, as she had never seen Dashie so mad before. She started to feel small "Why do you keep putting me down? I can do things! Yet, you never trust me! Am I that much of a failure to you?"

"No, of course not! You're a great-"

Dashie glared at her as she slowly walked up to Twilah, making her even smaller "Don't. You. Dare. Lie. To. Me. Am I a failure? Tell me the truth. Am I? You still feel that I am, right? Not going pro in running!"

"...no...you're not..."

"Then why do you put me down? Why do you treat me like I'm a weakling? Huh?! I'm not weak!"

"I know! But I just want to protect you!"

"Protect me!? What the hell are you talking about?"

"Dashie, calm down; you're overthinking things. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. You know, I love you."

"You can't love me, and put me down! That's not love! You're treating me like I'm a child, not your girlfriend! Is that what I am? A child? To you?"

"No! You're not! Dashie, please, let's stop this. It's getting too far."

"Too far?! You think this is too far? After all of that, you can't even give me a straight answer! What do you see me as?"

"Dashie, please, you're actin-"

"LIKE WHAT?!" shouted Dashie

"LIKE MY FATHER!" shouted back Twilah, as Dashie was taken aback by this.

"What are you talking about?"

"Dashie, my father, used to scream and shout at me and my mom. He would hit us. If my mom talked back to him, he would beat her. Even if I said the right things, he would still beat me. You know that. That's why I can't stand yelling and screaming, especially in the house. I told you this. I told you not to raise your voice in the house and not to scream at the top of your lungs. If you do, you'll trigger me, like before. I didn't tell you, because I didn't want to scare you or have you look at me the way my father did."

"How...did he look at you?"

"...like you are doing right now."

Dashie took a step back, as she felt ashamed and was staring at Twilah the same way her father did.

"Oh, my god... Twilah, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to."

"Don't worry about it. You were mad and wanted answers. You're just like me. We don't like to be lied to or treated like kids."

Both kept quiet until Dashie put her hand in her pocket, felt the box of the wedding ring, and clutched it hard.

"Dashie-"

"I need to run for a bit," Dashie ran out of the room, leaving Twilah alone, feeling like a failure and that she had hurt the most wonderful person in her life.

"Sorry," whispered Twilah as the door slowly closed behind Dashie.


Meanwhile, Twilight teleported Dash and herself into the AJ barn.

"Why are we here?"

"I just thought of whatever, and it happened to be this place!" Twilight sat on the hay covered ground. "Why? Why didn't you listen to me? You saw how she acted! You hurt her! ...just like I did."

Dash sighed "Sorry, I just didn't want her to be alone! I wanted to be there for her! I don't know if we're good parents. I mean, the way Braver acted, we failed her. We should've noticed her triggers. I thought we would've been a great team, a great couple, and the best moms ever. I guess I was wrong."

Dash sat down on the hay-covered floor and started to cry, which made Twilight heart break in sadness.

"Dash-"

"Twilight, I'm sorry. You should be with someone better than me."

"But I love you. And only you. There is no one else like you. I didn't have any feelings for anyone else but you. I only love you." Twilight used her magic to carry Dash to her, hugging her, "I love you, Rainbow Dash."

"I...I...I like you too," stutters Dash, causing Twilight to shake her head.

"Why?" simply asked Twilight.

"Huh?"

"Why can't you say "I love you" to me? I told you that I loved you. But why can't you say "I love you" too? Even right now, when I'm pouring my love out to you, You can't even say it right now. Am I not good enough for you?"

"NO! Of course, you're good enough! It's me; that's not good enough!"

"How are you not good enough? You're my lover! My wife! You're amazing, in every way possible! What's stopping you from telling me that you love me?"

"...because I'm afraid."

"Afraid of what? Me? Loving me? Me not loving you? What are you afraid of?"

"Everything!" yelled Dash as Twilight looked at her, confused.

"I'm, afraid. I'm not good enough for you. I'm scared that you might leave me for someone else. I'm scared that if I told you that I loved you, then something would go wrong. You would realize that you don't love me and want to break up with me. If I did tell you, "I love you" now, then that would cause you to not love me."

"Oh, Rainbow," whispered Twilight as she hugged Dash tightly while crying.

"I love you. No matter what, I love you. No one can change that. I'm not leaving you for someone else."

Dash pushed her away. "You don't know that! You don't know that!"

"Yes, I do!"

"You don't know anything about the future, and neither do I! You could be thinking of leaving me for some other mare! Behind my back!"

"You think I would cheat on you? REALLY!?"

"YES! YES! Because you can! YOU CAN HAVE ANYONE YOU WANT!"

Twilight was taken aback by this, as she took a step back.

"You can have anyone and anything. You're the princess of friendship; you could get anyone. Even, Celestia. You could have her if you want! Hell, even Cadan-" Dash couldn't finish as Twilight slapped her for the first time ever.

Dash looked at her and saw how hurt she was.

"Is that what you think of me?" cried Twilight as tears poured down her eyes.

"No, no, it's not."

"THEN WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?"

"Because, I'm scared! Scared of losing...you," Dash realized she was doing very thing right now. "Twilight, I'm so sorry."

"No, you are not. If you're scared, then maybe you should be with someone else. If that's how you feel about me."

"I'm not saying you would, Twilight. Please, you're the best thing in my life, besides Braver and the others."

"I can't take this. Dash, I can't take being with some pony who can't say, "I love you," because she thinks I'm a... I can't even say it. I can't deal with this right now." said Twilight as she opened a portal.

"Twilight, wait! Let's talk-"

"About what? The fact that you're scared of losing me? You think I would cheat on you? And the fact that you think I'm a..." Twilight shut her eyes as she could bear to say it "please don't follow me. Just let me be alone," Twilight walked through the portal, and the portal disappeared, leaving Dash alone.

Dash fell to her knees as she started to cry. She cried and cried until she couldn't anymore. She wiped the tears from her eyes, looked up, and saw the sun in the sky. She smiled and laughed at it, as she thought it was funny. "Hahahaha, hahaha...ha...it's just a sun. You have all the time in the world when you have to move it... I don't. Twilight, I'm sorry. I'm scared of losing you. I don't know what to do without you. You're my life. I can't lose you. Not, again." Dash worst fears were coming true and she didn't know what to do...just to head back to the castle...


Soon, in the castle garden, the twins were enjoying lunch as the maids brought them food to enjoy. They soon noticed Twilah and Dash walking to the garden, but without their partner, and were wondering why.

"Hey, Braver, is your mom okay?" asked Blitz, who was confused.

"Why wouldn't she be?" asked Braver.

"I dunno, I mean, isn't Twilight supposed to be with your mom? In fact, where's my mom?"

Braver and Blitz were starting to get a bad feeling about this as they looked at each other. Dash and Twilah sat down and put on a great front as they acted like nothing happened between their lovers.

"Okay, girls, we need to know. How did you get that prism window?" asked Twilah as the twins looked at her and then at each other.

"I just appeared in front of us one day, and we saw each other," answered Braver.

"Then you just didn't question it? It just popped out of nowhere," asked Dash as the twins nodded.

Twilah placed her hand on her chin and spoke, "This is odd. Nightfall explained that the prism windows can only appear in the wall of between, not within the universe. How did one end up in both worlds? ...And why was it for you two? It's as if someone wants the two of you to meet again."

"Someone like who?" asked Blitz, confused.

"Maybe..." whispered Twilah as she remembered wanting to ask Prime Discord a question before he left but couldn't, which was about the person he was talking about.

"Hey, wait a minute," whispered Dash as everyone turned to her. "You said both of you could see each other, right?"

"Yeah?" asked the twins.

"That's impossible; prism windows aren't two-way. It's like watching TV. It's not really a true window." explained Twilah.

"Then how did we hear each other? How could we talk to each other?" asked Blitz.

"That's the thing. They can't. Unless..." Twilah started to put things together and was gonna say her theory but Braver quickly finished her theory already as she spoke.

"Unless they can fuse as one! That has to be it!" shouted Braver as she jumped out of the chair, put on her glasses, and started to explain her theory. "If a prism window could fuse with another, then they could become a real window! a real doorway. It wasn't a crack in the walls, but a window! So, we fused a prism window with another, which means it can go back and forth! We can always see each other!" shouted Braver as she hugged Blitz, who was just as happy as her.

Twilah was shock and could only smile in how smart Braver was "Wow, she was thinking what I was going to say."

Dash puffed her chest out as she was proud of her daughter. "Well, she is a smart cookie but also takes after Twilight." Dash quickly remembered Twilight and became sad, but quickly shook it off.

"Okay, so how do we find it again? Did we scatter it? Is it gone forever?" asked Blitz

Braver shook her head. "No, even though we smashed our way through, I felt myself getting stuck when I was reaching out to you, like it was repairing itself... I believe they're off in the wall of between and recovering. But the problem is, will it return to us after it's done repairing itself? Maybe it's waiting for a sign to come back to us."

Twilah had a bad feeling—like another multiverse crisis was going to happen soon. She turned to Dash, who had the same feeling. They both turned to the twins and felt worried. Without realizing it, they both held each other by the hoof/hand, and when they did, they quickly let go and blushed.

"Sorry, Twilight. I mean Twilah," whispered Dash. as she corrected herself

"It's fine, Dashie. I mean Dash," whispered back Twilah, both blushing harder.

They both sighed and stood up, turning to the twins and walking up to them. Twilah put her hands over her daughter.

"What is it, mom?" asked Blitz.

"It looks like we're staying here for awhile. Go have fun with your sister. Go see the land. Think of this as a summer vacation. Have fun for now and play catch-up with her. If there was someone who truly brought the two-way prism window to you, they'll bring it back again. It's just a feeling, but I feel it's true. Go, be sisters," answered Twilah, who gave Blitz a motherly hug.Blitz returned the hug and kissed her cheek and stood up from the table. Dash got up and walked up to Braver, who was going to hug her too, but Braver quickly had flashes of Sky and started to call out Dawn.

"Braver? What's wrong?" asked Dash, confused.

Twilah quickly ran up to Dash and pulled her away, holding her as she explained Braver's safe word.

"What's a safe word?" asked Dash, still being confused.

"It's like a word you say when you can't handle what's happening. A word to make everything stop and to calm down. to tell others to stay away for now and be careful with what you say. like a code. I'll explain why she's feeling like that, since this will impact you," whispered Twilah.

"Huh?! Why will it impact me?" asked Dash, getting out of the hold.

"You'll see," answered Twilah as she watched Dash walk up to her daughter, who was breathing heavily and somewhat melting, having flashbacks of her fights against Sky.

"Braver, listen, calm down. Just breathe," Dash held out her hoof and touch Braver own hoof, which was like holding a warm goo.

"I'm sorry, Mom, but...stay away!" Braver ran from Dash touch and to the middle of the garden and kept repeating Dawn as she tried to do the stuff that Twilah taught her. Dash, first time, in a very long time, felt alone, until Twilah bent down to her and told her it was okay.



A heartbeat skips... Dash was scared again. She didn't want this feeling she suddenly had, but she didn't want to be alone.

"Running out of time..." whispered her voice within her head as her midlife crisis was coming back. "You are running out of time. Be with someone! Anyone!"

"Shut up," thought Dash, closing her eyes.

"You are alone..."

"I'm not."

"You're going to die alone."

"Shut up."

"She won't love you."

"She will...again."

"But...maybe Twilah will? It's Twilight after all."

"Shut it!"

"She left you."

"Shut up," thought Dash as she hanged her head in shame while Braver was still repeating her words.

"Dawn."

"Dawn."

"Dawn."

"Dawn."


In the library, Dawn could somehow hear Braver's voice, hearing her calling out to her. It was making her smile with joy and love, wanting to hug and kiss her. Be with her one and only friend in the world.
"I'm coming, Braver." Dawn smiled as she looked up to the window. "I'll protect you! So look at me!"

"Dawn!"

"Dawn!"

"Dawn!!"


"DAWN!!"

Within the dark sea of the void, The other Dawn was holding the prism window and sending out Braver's cries to her pony self. She was smiling, as another voice was mixing with Braver's voice; it wasn't the same but somehow was. She was listening to it. It was calling out to her.

"DAWN!!!"

"DAWN!!! STOP!"

Her chest started blasting out more rainbow liquid as the voice started to cry in pain as it kept calling her name. She started to laugh and was smiling.

"DAWN! YOU'RE HURTING ME!" cried the voice, crying harder as the rainbow liquid started to leak from her back now, as she could see the memories of that day.

"DAWN! STOP! STOP HURTING ME!" the voice, was in pain, as the rainbow liquid started to drip from her eyes, as she was now remembering the fight and was starting to smile, as she was finally going to see her again, even if it was a memory.

"DAWN!!!"

"DAWN!!!"

Dawn pulled her head back as she started to cry and laugh.

"I see you. My reason to rise," smiled Dawn, as tears were leaking from her eyes and her hole in her chest had a faint glow, like the core wanted to come back.

"Dawn, don't forget; you will never be alone." the voice said, as for a few seconds, Dawn returned from her madness and talked to no one.

"You were my reason. Why did you leave me?" whispered Dawn as her chest glow started to fade away. "But don't worry. I found you again."

Dawn stood up and smiled. She touched the window and stroked the image of Braver and Blitz.

"I found my rainbow comet again."
