Travel Account 3: Spell Breaker

When I was briefed on the mission I was supposed to perform in the past, I knew I was the right mare for the job. I suppose it has something to do with my special talent lying in magical tracking but that’s why I was chosen to go as the third member of our exploration group to go back in time. I was supposed to help this unicorn named Quicksilver with the discovery of the location of the ponies going missing from Twin Palms.

After the spell ended, I was left in the same room that Foggy Mane had written about in his account of his time in the past. The ponies were all there including the old pony who must have been Midnight Rain and the unicorn described as Quicksilver. I must say, I was expecting something special from these two, but to me, they looked just like any other pony I’ve seen around Equestria. At any rate, I did my introduction and met Midnight. He seemed to be surprised at me being a mare but I’m not sure why. Come to think of it, so did the other ponies there by the looks they were giving me. Quicksilver was the only one not looking at me like I didn’t belong but really he didn’t seem to care about anything at all.

I still went out and learned from Midnight and Quicksilver what exactly I was supposed to be doing. I needed to help figure out what had been taking the villagers and where they had been taken to. They explained everything in greater detail and Quicksilver told me a spell I could use to help but honestly, I wasn’t paying attention. How can you blame me though? I grew up in a city with ponies everywhere and never really got to see the life of a small town. I was too enthralled in the beauty of the town to pay much attention to the boring ponies that told me stuff I already knew.

By the time the lecture was over, I had listened to about half of it and really gotten no new information that hadn’t already been passed to me by the accounts of Light Fire and Foggy Mane. At least I did well at faking my attention and didn’t have to listen to it again like my parents had done when I was just a little filly. Well time to actually get working. I was a detective in the streets, looking for clues and willing to do anything to get the job done.

We went to the site of the latest disappearance and from the moment my hooves stepped onto the hard wood floor of the small, now abandoned house I could tell something bad had happened in that very room. The magical residue was all over the area and it was strong. Whatever had performed the despicable acts of kidnapping these ponies was incredibly powerful. My detective senses went into overdrive as I used my favorite tracking spell on the spot where the trace was the strongest.

Unfortunately I was wrong and the disturbance was actually Quicksilver casting his own spell to find the culprit. This was finally starting to get fun; I joined in with my famous tracking spell that was sure to find out the identity of the pony who had taken the citizens of Twin Palms. When I worked my magic I was shocked at the outcome. I was not expecting that at all. My magic told me that the pony who took the other ponies was none other than, a pony who was too clever for my trick and couldn’t be discovered by my simple spell. Luckily I had a backup plan and another spell that had never failed me before.

My second spell worked and told me that the ponies had been taken to a place far away. It seemed to be coming from the direction of the sea and was probably on one of those islands that I could barely see from the shoreline. But then I realized, there weren’t any islands there before when I had been zoned out and looking around at the landscape. If this was the case, then where did the islands come from and why did they seem to be getting bigger. It was probably just a figment of my imagination as there was no possible way an island could just grow on its own that fast.

I didn’t say anything about the islands to either Quicksilver or Midnight, but at least I told them that the location of the missing ponies was in the direction of the sea. Honestly, sometimes I get yelled at for the weirdest things. One time it was attempting to sleep for a thousand years like a dragon does while another time it was not paying attention to a boring lecture on physics and other boring stuff like that. Okay, I’m getting a little off topic here but who cares, certainly not me. Well we figured out where the missing ponies were at least so I think it was a day well spent.

My new best buddy Quicksilver and I started the short journey to the barn we were supposed to be sleeping in for the night. After the investigation of the missing citizens, we didn’t really have much to do so I decided to work on making the barn look even better than it did before. Sure Foggy Mane did really good with the clouds as decorations, but the rest of the barn still needed a little pizazz. I think it would really look good with a bunch of pink.

Quicksilver decided to be boring and went inside to meditate or something, but I got to work on painting the building to look like the funnest place you’ve ever laid eyes on. When I was done, there was pink everywhere covering the outside of the barn. Now if only I could move the clouds to look like frosting it would be the best place ever.

I went to sleep due to the exhaustion of having such a fun time painting the entire outside of the barn. When I woke up, it was almost time for me to go back to my own dreary time. I went to the town hall and stood by the beacon while I activated the ring to send me back. When I returned I was told to write this report of everything that happened to me. Maybe I can go visit my friend Surprise when I’m done. She can be so funny sometimes, but then again so can Pinkie. I really can’t choose, bye.

End of Chapter 3

Well here it is, my second chapter in the same night. Wrote this one and chapter 2 in just a mere 9 hours or so, sorry if it seems a little odd. Maybe you can guess who I based Spell Breaker’s personality off of. Hope you liked it.
