Fluttershy seeks help because Angel Bunny has been suddenly misbehaving. After doing everything she can for him, she ventures off to see Discord for help. Can Discord really help Fluttershy's ability to get Angel Bunny under control? More importantly, can he still be trusted with his magic?
"Now just you wait right there sweetheart. Mama is going to get your special soup, so you can have lunch now," the yellow mare said as she trotted happily into the kitchen.
Angel Bunny thumped his foot in delight that it was now feeding time. As Fluttershy left to enter the kitchen, Angel Bunny's eyes suddenly turned dark green as if some kind of magical spell was casted upon him. The magical glowing green died down quickly and he shook his head violently for a moment.
Fluttershy joyfully trotted back inside the living room with a bowl of soup in one hoof. "I hope you don't mind Angel Bunny, but Mama has been reading healthy recipe books from Twilight Sparkle's library about healthy herbs and foods. I added into your soup some Garlic, Turmeric, Cayenne Pepper, and a bit of black pepper to help the Turmeric absorb better in your body," she said.
Suddenly Fluttershy's eyes opened wide in fear.
Angel Bunny was rampaging through the house as if some demon had recently possessed him. He was being aggressive and violent towards the other animals. He suddenly stopped when he noticed that Fluttershy was now back in the room. He gave her a sinister grin and leapt onto the couch. He began furiously humping her couch pillows.
"Eeep!" Fluttershy cried out. "I know you can get agitated in the Spring when it's mating season, but I have never seen you this out of control before." Fluttershy hurried over to the couch and placed the bowl next to him. "Look Angel Bunny, Mama knows that it can be frustrating not having a mate, but we'll find you a somebunny special in the future. Right now you're a little too young for that. Mama has your soup sweetheart. Why don't you have a sip?" Fluttershy gently blew on the soup to cool it off.
Angel Bunny halted his business on the pillow and turned around. He was starving so he took one single sip of the soup. Suddenly, his face turned bright red from the Cayenne Pepper and he kicked the bowl away with his foot. The bowl of soup spilled all over the couch.
"Oh my," Fluttershy said with her hoof near her mouth. "Angel Bunny, I'm sorry if that burned your mouth a little bit. It's just that Cayenne Pepper is so good for your heart as well as many other things. Mama wants to see you healthy. Let me get you something else to eat."
Suddenly, Angel Bunny opened his mouth as wide as he could and chomped down on one of Fluttershy's front legs.
Fluttershy let out a holler in pain and shook her hoof quickly in an attempt to get him off of it.
The force flew him back and he landed back on the couch. He suddenly went back to taking care of his business with the couch pillow.
Fluttershy rubbed her front leg, that had gotten bitten, with her other hoof. "Angel Bunny that really hurt! What happened to you?" she asked him, but her words fell upon deaf ears as her beloved bunny plowed into the pillow with full force.
"He has been like this for how long?" Twilight Sparkle asked.
Fluttershy nervously looked at the five of her friends. There was a look of worry and uncertainty on her face. "About a week," she confessed.
"I reckon he might just need a good buck to the backside, Fluttershy. I think I could take care of that for ya," A certain farmer pony suggested as she walked closer to the bunny.
Fluttershy ran over to Applejack and put her front hooves on Applejack's chest in an attempt to stop her from getting any closer to her pet. "Oh no, Applejack! I could never allow my precious little bunny to be hit. We have to practice gentleness and kindness."
Twilight Sparkle put her hoof to her chin in thought. "I see," Twilight said. Suddenly, her horn began to glow and she blasted Angel Bunny with whatever powerful magic she could muster up to clear the corruption from his mind. The magical spell did nothing and Angel Bunny continued to rampage through the house. Twilight looked back at Fluttershy. "You can always take him to get a Pharmaceutical. Maybe they have some kind of psychotropic drug that he can take to help."
Fluttershy's eyes opened wide in horror. "Oh no, Twilight," she said. "I could never do that. I have been reading books in your library about those kind of drugs and they are dangerous and only temporarily suppress symptoms while doing damage to the body and mind over time. I could never put my precious Angel Bunny through that."
Twilight rolled her eyes and said, "Well, I won't disagree with that, but if he's being such an inconvenience, then I don't see what other option you can try. My magic failed to do anything for him, and I have been learning so many new and powerful spells with the Princesses."
Fluttershy bowed her head with shame. "Thank you all for coming. I guess I will just try my best to seek other options," she said in a sad sounding voice.
Her friends left her house and Fluttershy was now alone with Angel Bunny. Her other animal friends had left the house because they were terrified of him. "I don't know what else I can do for you, Angel. Mama will find a way though. I promise."
The next day, Fluttershy set off to seek help. She was now friends with Discord, since she was the one to change his mind and turn him to the good side for the "most" part. Discord was sitting on top of a pink cloud that was raining chocolate. He was also reading a book about performing new magical spells. He had a cup of tea in his hand and he began to sip it.
"Um, excuse me Mr. Discord, but may I have a word with you?" Fluttershy asked.
Discord panicked and hid the book he was reading into the cloud he was sitting on. He put his tea cup on the cloud and came down to the ground. "Oh my, my, my, if it isn't my most favorite and lovliest pony in all of Equestria! What can I do for you my dear?"
Fluttershy looked as if she was about to cry. "I have a problem with Angel Bunny and I want to know if there's anything you can do to help me get him under control. He's been very angry and aggressive lately," she said.
"A problem with Angel Bunny?" Discord asked as he perked up a bit with a crooked smile. "I would have never imagined in my most wildest and chaotic dreams that Angel Bunny would ever be in the slightest bit problematic! Why I have just the thing for you, my darling. Discord's claw like hand began to glow green as he leeched some of the spirit of kindness out of Fluttershy's heart. His other hand began to glow as he summoned a strange mist like vapor in the air. The vapors made the shape of a dragon, surrounded by a circle. "Now just come a little closer dear and take a deep breath, Fluttershy."
Fluttershy was hesitant, but she came forward and inhaled the air vapors as she was instructed to do. The vapors choked her throat and she began to cough a lot.
Discord smiled with glee and said, "Now you should have the motivation and confidence in dealing with your little pet bunny." Discord giggled with excitement. "Good luck, Fluttershy! I'll see you around, later." Discord suddenly snapped his crooked fingers and was gone in an instant. He vanished into thin air.
"Um, thanks Mr. Discord?" Fluttershy said in a totally unsure voice. Fluttershy turned back to travel home. She didn't realize anything unusual or different about herself ever since she inhaled those vapors.
Upon entering the house, Fluttershy was shocked that Angel Bunny had broken free from his cage that she put him in. The house was a disaster and he was running through the living room like a mad bunny.
Fluttershy put her hoof to her mouth in shock. "Um, Angel Bunny, please calm down now. Discord casted a special spell on me so that I can control you better. It's past your lunch time, let Mama get you your favorite carrot soup. I'll only add a teeny weeny bit of Cayenne Pepper this time." Fluttershy left and quickly brought back his meal. "Come on Angel, Mama knows you're hungry. It won't be too spicy this time. I promise. Just trust me, please."
Angel Bunny leapt onto the couch and was about to have his way with the pillows again.
"Oh no you don't, Angel Bunny! Please come here and have your soup."
Angel Bunny ignored her and continued to thrust himself into the couch pillow.
Suddenly, Fluttershy's eyes glowed with some kind of evil dark green magic. Her kindness in her heart faded away and she became filled with anger and vengeance. "Angel Bunny, I said, GET OVER HERE!" She pointed her hoof at the bunny and just as she said those three words, out of her hoof came a spear, with a long chain that was linked to it. The spear barely missed the bunny and connected with the pillow. Fluttershy stood there in shock and awe. She suddenly looked down at her hoof and she saw the long chain coming out of her hoof. The chain was on the floor leading up to the pillow where the spear had penetrated. Fluttershy looked back at the bunny, who was now shaking in fear at the booming voice of his master. Fluttershy shook her head several times and said, "Oh, my. I don't know how that happened. Angel Bunny, let Mama feed you your supper now."
Angel Bunny clung to the pillow, with the spear now in it, once more. He was terrified.
Fluttershy's eyes glowed with that dark green color and she became angry once more. "COME HERE!" she screamed out loud as she yanked the spear connected to the chain back over to her. Angel Bunny and the pillow went flying across the room and landed near the hooves of Fluttershy. Fluttershy again shook her head in confusion. "Um, please eat your soup now, sweetheart. I don't want it to get cold."
Angel Bunny's eyes glowed with the same dark green magic and he became rebellious again. He kicked the bowl of soup and it landed right in Fluttershy's face. He then began to run around the room while knocking things over and breaking them.
Fluttershy removed the bowl from her face. She became furious and suddenly she found herself throwing spears all across the room in an attempt to hook the rampaging bunny. Angel Bunny ran out of the house and Fluttershy was left panting in her home all alone. She put her hoof to the temple of her head and squinted her eyes shut. When she snapped out of her raging fit, she looked across the room. There were holes everywhere in the wall from where the spears penetrated. Her house was now ruined thanks to her newly acquired anger.
Weeks had gone by and Fluttershy had secluded herself in her house, refusing to leave, because she was filled with such anger and vengeance in her heart.
Twilight Sparkle and her friends decided to pay a visit to Fluttershy.
"Knock, knock, knock." Twilight Sparkle tapped the door with her hoof. The lights were not on, and nopony appeared to be inside. Twilight gently pushed the door open and peered inside. "Hello?" she cautiously asked. She couldn't see anything because it was too dark. She flicked at the light switch near the door with her hoof and when the lights came on, everyponies mouth hung open in shock.
The house was destroyed and they saw Fluttershy sitting in the middle of the room with her head hanging low.
Rainbow Dash was the first to make a move. She trotted over to Fluttershy and put her hoof on her shoulder. "Hey Flutters, what happened to your house, and why haven't you been hanging out with us anymore? What's with all the holes in the walls too?"
Fluttershy turned her head away and said, "I-I-I just don't want to talk about it right now."
Rainbow Dash looked confused.
Suddenly, Applejack stepped in and said, "Is this 'cause of yer little Angel Bunny? Where is the little rascal now? Did ya kick him out of the house? Maybe you'd be better off without him fer now."
Fluttershy's eyes glowed green once more and she looked at Applejack with such an angry expression on her face and said, "How dare you say such a thing about my precious little bunny." She pointed her hoof out quickly at Applejack and out came the spear from her hoof. The spear barely missed Applejacks head and connected with her hat. Fluttershy yanked at the chain and pulled her hat to herself with rage as she cried out loud, "GET OVER HERE!" All the girls gasped in horror and held each other in their hooves. Even Rainbow Dash was hiding behind Applejack and quivering because she had never seen such a thing nor had ever heard that kind of tone of voice come out of Fluttershy.
Fluttershy shook her head once more and looked down at Applejack's hat that was connected to the spear. She unhooked the spear from her hat and brought it over to Applejack. "Oh, I'm so sorry about that. It was an accident. Here is your hat back. Please forgive me," she said as she extended her hoof with the hat on the end of it.
Applejack gulped and slowly took the hat away from her hoof. "Thanks sugar cube. I reckon I better keep my mouth shut from now on."
Fluttershy sighed to herself. "I just get so angry sometimes and I can't control my urges to throw this spear that comes out of my hoof. I don't know what I can do about it."
Twilight was still holding on to Rarity in fear. She let go of her and asked, "Why don't you try screaming your frustrations out. I know it didn't help much before, but it helps me sometimes when I get really upset."
Fluttershy took a deep breath and stood up on her hind legs. Just as she landed back down on her front legs, she let out her scream and instead of a noise that came out of her mouth, a spew of fire came out and she set fire to the couch."
All of her friends were horrified at what had just happened.
Rainbow Dash quickly left the house and came back with a storm cloud in her hooves. She placed it over the couch and began to bounce up and down on the cloud until the water poured out and extinguished the fire.
Twilight gulped and said, "Fluttershy, I think we need to get you some more help. Why don't you come with us and see if Princess Celestia knows anything about what's going on with you."
Fluttershy became very upset and said, "No! I am not going anywhere until my Angel Bunny comes back home." Suddenly, she felt the rage boil over her and she began throwing spears at her friends.
Her friends began dodging the spears and trying to find cover within the house.
Fluttershy had cornered Rainbow Dash and was about to throw a spear at her, when suddenly a rope was wrapped around her body. Applejack had used her lassoing skills and landed her rope around Fluttershy's body. Applejack yanked at the rope and Fluttershy went tumbling across the room and landed at the hooves of Applejack. "Now why don't ya 'git over here for a moment and calm yourself down, missy," the farm girl said.
Fluttershy struggled with all of her might to break free from the lasso, but Applejack was a master at what she practiced and Fluttershy gave up hope.
Twilight Sparkle knelt down beside Fluttershy and said, "Fluttershy, we need to help you. Your rage is out of control and you could have killed one of us. We are taking you to see the Princesses now."
Rainbow Dash helped tie Fluttershy onto Applejack's back with another rope. As Applejack carried the yellow mare out, her friends followed behind her.
Once they reached the friendship express train, they all boarded and headed to Canterlot to see the Princess. When they got off the train, they hurried over to the castle. Before long, they were all standing before Princess Celestia.
Rainbow Dash untied the rope that was binding Fluttershy to Applejack's back. She scooped up Fluttershy with her front hooves and tossed her on the ground at the hooves of Princess Celestia. Rainbow Dash looked up at the Princess and said, "Princess Celestia, our friend nearly killed us all and has been suffering with uncontrollable rage. We need your help!"
The Princess nodded her head and ordered that her royal guards untie the pony. Once they did, Fluttershy became filled with anger, that her friends had tied her up against her own will and that her front hooves suddenly were set a blaze with fire. She turned her focus on the Princess and threw her spear at her.
Princess Celestia ducked her head and the spear knocked the crown off of her head that she was wearing. She instantly used her magic and placed Fluttershy in some kind of force field where she wouldn't be able to break out of or cause any possible danger. "Guards please bring to me my book called The Big Book O' Alternative Worlds."
The guards did so and Princess Celestia began to flip through the pages. "Spears, spears, spears," she said out loud as she flipped through the index. "Ah! Found it!"
The girls watched the Princess' eyes dart back and forth as she gathered the information from the book.
Princess Celestia closed the book and sighed out loud to herself. "It looks like I'm going to have to travel to an alternate world to find more about this spear throwing business. There wasn't much information given about the problem, but the book did tell of what world this comes from. I feel that someone or something has been messing around with magic that they shouldn't be using. Whoever is doing this, left a note inside of my book saying that I need to take Fluttershy to this world in order to cure her."
"Would it be okay if we came along too Princess? We would love to learn about this world and see Fluttershy cured of her anger problems," Twilight asked.
Princess Celestia let out a rather unusual laugh. "I assume I could let you all come, but the book tells that this world is rather dark and scary."
Pinkie Pie instantly blurted out, "That's okay, Princess Celestia! That's why we learned to giggle at the ghostly!"
"Very well," the Princess said. "Guards, please put Princess Luna in charge of my royal duties as I leave to find a cure for Fulttershy. Princess Celestia ordered Applejack to lasso Fluttershy once again. She took Fluttershy out of the shield barrier that was preventing her from harming anypony. Applejack immediately lassoed the angry yellow mare and the rest of the girls helped tie her to Applejack's back once again. Princess Celestia's eyes glowed white as she channeled the magic through her body. Her horn lit up and she teleported herself with all of the ponies to the far away world that her book spoke about.
The girls mouths hung open in shock. They were standing in a forest where the trees had faces and were alive similar to their experience in their own world, in the Everfree Forest.
Pinkie Pie joyfully leapt over to one of the trees. She started making funny faces at it and was giggling madly. Just as she turned her flank to the tree to look at the other trees, her tail brushed up against the mouth of the tree. The tree grabbed a hold of her tail and began to chew on it. Pinkie Pie tried to break free, but the tree continued to nibble on her tail and wouldn't let go. Pinkie Pie frantically tried to break free and called out, "HELP!"
Princess Celestia saw that the tree was about to devour the pink pony and she used her magic to teleport Pinkie Pie away from the tree. "Pinkie Pie! These trees are different here and will consume anything that enters their mouths. You could have been killed. Please stay away from the trees in this forest. Whoever left that note in my book said that we need to find a man named Shang Tsung in order to fix this problem.
As the girls followed the princess, they took note of how dark and scary this place really is.
Applejack's ears perked up when she heard the sound of someone moaning. She quickly veered off the path and cried out in horror at what she saw. What in tar nations is that thing!?"
Hearing Applejack, made all of the other ponies come over to her. There, the girls stood with horror on their faces.
Twilight Sparkle looked up at the Princess and asked, "What kind of creature is that, Princess?"
Princess Celestia cautioned the girls not to get any closer to the subject. "That creature is called a human," she said. "Please do not go near that tree where he is. As you can see, he is dying a slow death from the vines that are wrapped around his body next to the tree. He will be devoured soon enough. We need to move on if we are going to find a cure for your friend."
As they traveled through the forest, they could hear the screams of other people and the evil that plagued this place was very upsetting. The sense of death was everywhere.
Princess Celestia put her hoof out as if to stop the rest of the ponies from going any further. There they saw three men in the distance. One of the men was much older and was yelling at what appeared to be a Ninja in a yellow uniform. The other man was swaying around and stumbling as if he were drunk. The man swaying back and forth was wearing sun glasses and had his name tattooed across his chest.
As the ponies slowly approached the three, they could hear what was being said.
"I told you for the millionth time that you have to finish him if you want to succeed in the tournament. I don't know what has gotten into you! You used to be the most vicious and feared Ninja in this entire tournament and now you can't even finish off an opponent? I order you, by the commandments of Shao Kahn himself, to FINISH HIM!" the older man demanded.
The Ninja put his fingers to his forehead in agony and distress. "I just can't do it," he said. "I just have this insane urge to go on a hugging spree and try doing things like cake decorating. I have been suffering from kindness!"
Princess Celestia appeared from behind the three men. "Excuse me, but do any of you gentlemen go by the name of Shang Tsung?" she asked.
Scorpion and Shang Tsung turned around to see Princess Celestia standing behind them.
The man who had lost the fight against Scorpion was still swaying around like a drunken fool.
"Yes, it is I," Shang Tsung said. "What do you want from me?"
Princess Celestia cleared her throat. "One of my ponies has been acting very strange lately, and I think that someone or something has used a forbidden magical power that swapped personalities with someone else. I was told to come here in order to solve the problem."
Shang Tsung scratched his beard with his fingers. "Ah, I assume that makes sense," he said. "One of our most hateful and vengeful fighters named Scorpion has been suffering with this strange desire to hug animals and perform random acts of kindness. It's a very disturbing thing to see."
"Then I think we found our man," the Princess said. "Girls, please place Fluttershy next to Scorpion."
The four mares unstrapped her from Applejack's back and brought her over to where Scorpion was standing.
"If we could combine our magic together, we may have the power strong enough to switch their personalities back," the princess said. Her horn began to glow, as the mighty Sorcerer Shang Tsung, prepared his hands with a glowing effect. They both channeled their magic together and blasted Scorpion and Fluttershy. The effect did nothing.
Suddenly, some harsh laughter could be heard. Out of the skies, a scroll fell down to the earth.
Princess Celestia used her magic and opened up the scroll. "Oh my," she said. "It says the only way to break the curse of this spell is to have Fluttershy perform a fatality."
"Well don't just stand there!" Shang Tsung demanded. "Hurry up and have your pony finish off the fighter that Scorpion couldn't kill. I can't stand to see one of my most feared Ninjas turn into a flower loving little pansy."
Princess Celestia nodded and she used her magic to untie Fluttershy from the rope. "Go on Fluttershy," the Princess said. "Finish him!"
Fluttershy nervously walked over to the man who was still swaying back and forth. She gulped and looked back to the Princess. "You want me to murder someone? I just can't do it," Fluttershy mumbled as she turned her head away. "Isn't there some other kind of special move that I can perform, like a friendship?"
As everyone else lost hope, Johnny Cage was able to recover and said in a mocking tone, "Ponies suck and friendship is gay!"
Fluttershy instantly turned back to the arrogant man and said, "Excuse me? What did you say?"
Johnny Cage said it again. "Ponies suck and friendship is gay!"
Fluttershy's eyes turned green with the evil magic that was corrupting her mind. She shot back at Johnny and said, "Well, I'd compare you to a horse's rear end, but that would be an unfair comparison, because way more manure comes out of your mouth than the horse's rear end!"
Johnny Cage laughed and said, "You all suck, and I'm the best!"
Rainbow Dash tried not to vomit because the extreme arrogance of this man was even making her sick to her stomach.
Suddenly, Fluttershy threw out her spear at him in rage. It connected to the chest of Johnny Cage and she yanked at the chain with all her might. "GET OVER HERE!" Fluttershy yelled out with a voice so deep that the limbs from the trees seemed to shake. Johnny Cage fell to the ground and the way his head hit the earth made his neck snap. He was now paralyzed. Fluttershy wrapped the chain around his neck several times and dragged him over to one of the trees. She pushed him into the mouth of the tree and the tree began to chomp on his body until he was swallowed whole.
Suddenly, a deep voice announced, "Fluttershy wins! FATALITY!"
Princess Celestia turned to Shang Tsung and said, "What happens when a fighter dies? Where do they go?"
Shang Tsung let out a deep laugh and replied, "Oh, I just usually send them to Purgatory for a while. Sometimes I'll send Johnny Cage to Limbo, with all the other babies, since he really is such a whiny little baby himself. I wish he would stay there longer, but they always have him resurrected so soon. He's such an arrogant little prick. I still can't believe that he got his own name tattooed across his chest. He even brings an extra pair of sunglasses when he fights others just incase the sunglasses that he's wearing breaks off of his face. He's always hitting people below the belt too! I keep suggesting that we ban him from the tournament, but Shao Kahn seems to like him for some reason."
Princess Celestia laughed. "I know a pony who loves to wear sunglasses and likes to play dirty in competitions too. Do you remember what happened at the annual Running of the Leaves, Rainbow Dash?" the Princess asked as she pointed her front hoof at the cyan Pegasus.
Rainbow Dash looked horrified because Celestia had compared her to such a jerk. She pointed her front hoof at Applejack and said, "Applejack cheated too!"
Applejack rolled her eyes.
Everypony turned to check on Fluttershy when they heard a soft whimper.
Fluttershy lost all of her rage and aggression and transformed into the sweet and loving pony that everypony else knew.
Princess Celestia wiped the sweat off of her head and said, "Phew! Glad that's over with, now let's go home."
"Wait!" Shang Tsung called out. "Scorpion is not better and he is still being a softy!"
Princess Celestia gave an odd look at the Ninja in the yellow uniform, who was crouched down low to the ground and seemed to be sad over the death of Fluttershy's opponent. The Princess picked up the scroll and read it again. "Oh," she said. "It looks like I didn't read the bottom part of this letter. The letter says that Scorpion must hold and cuddle with Fluttershy in his arms as he sips a cup of tea. He must drink the tea and stick his pinky out while he sips it."
Scorpion got on his knees and tore the top of his uniform in distress. "I can't do that! That goes against the very nature of who I am!" he cried out. "How am I supposed to even sip the tea in the first place? I don't even have any lips or a face and my entire head is a flaming skull! Why do you think I wear this flame retardant mask all of the time? How am I even talking without a tongue?"
Shang Tsung instantly shot back at him and said, "Oh for crying out loud, you were the one who was talking about cake decorating and hugging things! Go over there and hug the little pony! Just try to sip the tea and give it your best shot!"
Scorpion put his head down in shame as he walked over to Fluttershy. He sat on the ground and scooped her up in his arms and held her tightly against his chest.
Princess Celestia then used her magic and within an instant, Scorpion was holding a cup of tea. He tried his best to take several sips of it. Most of the tea spilled onto his uniform.
"You must stick your pinky out as you sip the tea Scorpion or it doesn't count!" Shang Tsung demanded.
Scorpion looked distraught. "I can't do that!" he said. "Please, not the pinky! Anything but the pinky!"
Princess Celestia looked over at Shang Tsung and said, "Relax. I've got this." She used her magic and there was this glowing effect the surrounded the pinky finger of Scorpion. Scorpion fought against this magic with all his might. His pinky finger was quivering, but the powers of the Princess were far too much for his strength. Scorpion's pinky shot out to the side.
"Noooooooooo!" Scorpion cried out.
Fluttershy became terrified at the cry from the Ninja. She let out an "Eeep!" and somehow, managed to break free from Scorpion's arms.
The curse of the spell was now lifted off of Scorpion and he gained the hatred and vengeance back into his heart. After realizing what he was forced to do, he became enraged, as his body became engulfed in flames from the fires of Hell itself. He threw out his spear at Fluttershy in an attempt to hook her. He missed and the spear sunk into the ground at the hooves of Fluttershy. Scorpion came running over and grabbed her by her mane. He lifted her up into the air and he pulled back the spear from out of the ground into his hand. He held the spear in his hand and prepared to slice the throat of Fluttershy. Just as he brought the spear to her throat, he paused for a moment. Tears flooded his eyes as he watched the innocent little pony sob uncontrollably and her whole body was shaking tremendously with fear. He couldn't do it. He took the spear away from her throat and brought her back lovingly into his arms. He sat back down on the ground and rocked his body back and forth as if he was cradling a baby. He ran his fingers through her soft pink mane repeatedly, in order to calm her down.
Suddenly a very large man with metal arms appeared through the forest. "Man, I have been waiting all day to see who I'm supposed to fight next. What is taking you guys so long." As Jax stepped through the trees, he stood there in shock. "What's up with these colorful ponies?" he asked.
Out of no where, many other fighters came out onto the path where the ponies were. Everyone had become anxious and wanted to know whether Johnny Cage or Scorpion won the battle, so they could see who they had to fight next.
Rainbow Dash watched a blurry figure race past her at blinding speed. The character stopped and looked down at her.
Even though Rainbow Dash was a brave pony, she couldn't help but quiver in fear at his masked face and the hooks that he carried on his back.
Kabal gently scooped the little cyan colored pony up in his arms.
Jax came over and picked the little farm pony up for himself.
Ermac levitated Twilight Sparkle into his hands.
Quan Chi came down from the sky and picked Rarity up as well.
Liu Kang picked up Pinkie Pie and began to stroke her back.
Scorpion continued to pet Fluttershy and was now tickling her belly in a playful manner.
Fluttershy let out the cutest little giggle.
As Princess Celestia and Shang Tsung watched the fighters and ponies, they both took note of the similarities each fighter and each pony had in common.
Applejack and Jax were bucking and hitting trees to show off their strength.
Twilight Sparkle and Ermac were using their magic to levitate things in the air.
Rarity and Quan Chi were casting spells and admiring their purely white bodies.
Pinkie Pie and Liu Kang were laughing and being totally random.
Rainbow Dash and Kabal were speeding through the forest at full speeds, and Scorpion continued to play with the little yellow pony. Perhaps he was so attached to her because the color of her soft coat was so similar to the color of his uniform.
Shang Tsung felt temptation come over him. He slowly reached out and was about to touch Princess Celestia, but she teleported away.
"I can't let you touch me, Shang Tsung," the Princess said. "Don't you see what is happening to all of your fighters? Once a human makes physical contact with a pony, they become madly in love and obsessed with them. You should see the people of Earth Realm. They are so fanatical about ponies that they call themselves Bronies and Pegasisters. Humans have such a weakness for our kind and if we are to ever leave this place and get everything back to normal, then I'm going to need your help right now. I need you to keep your fighters away from the ponies as I teleport them out of harms way.
Shang Tsung sighed to himself and nodded his head in agreement.
Every fighter was now back to cuddling with the pony of their choice.
Princess Celestia used her magic and the ponies teleported out of the arms of the fighters and back to where the Princess was standing. The fighters became upset and ran at full speed to pet the ponies.
"Do it now, Shang Tsung!" the Princess cried out.
Shang Tsung used his magic and the fighters were now trapped inside a force field. The fighters banged, kicked, and scratched at the magical wall with all their might in an attempt to break free. During this time, Princess Celestia channeled the magic through her body and it took a moment for her, but sure enough she was able to leave this world and teleport all the ponies safely back to Equestira.
Once back home, all the girls piled on top of Fluttershy in a great display of affection and love for their friend.
Twilight Sparkle broke free and said, "Oh Fluttershy! I'm so happy to have you back, but are you going to be okay? You did murder a human being after all. Do you feel bad about that being that it goes against the very nature of who you are? Are you still afraid since Scorpion almost killed you in his rage?"
Fluttershy giggled to herself at the thought and replied, "No. I'm Okay. That guy deserved it. He was a total jerk. He makes Prince Blueblood look well behaved. Scorpion is scary, but I think I'm Okay. I guess I kind of like him because well, he's named after an insect that I had fun playing with when I took a trip to Saddle Arabia to learn more about different kinds of critters. "
The rest of the girls were giggling at the thought.
Princess Celestia allowed Pinkie Pie to throw a party for Fluttershy in her royal castle. After the party, each mare went home.
As Fluttershy was walking home, she sensed a strange shadowy figure stalking her. Out from the bushes Scorpion popped out.
Fluttershy let out an "Eeep!" in fear because Scorpion's appearance is very scary and dark. "How did you manage to break free from the magical wall?" she asked.
Scorpion put his finger to his mask and hushed her. "Shhhh," he said. "I think some of the fighters forgot that they can teleport. I was able to teleport out of the trap just in time before you left our world and I got caught up in your world. Just please come here and let me touch you once more. I want to have some tea with you. I'll stick my pinky out again, I swear." The Ninja came closer to the pony that was now cowering low to the ground. Just before his trembling hand was able to touch her body, a chain wrapped around the waist of Scorpion and he was pulled back instantly.
Fluttershy looked up and noticed that there were two identical Ninjas. The other Ninja transformed himself back into his original form. It was no other than Shang Tsung himself.
Scorpion desperately tried to break free, but there was no escaping. "Please let me just touch her once more! I don't want to go back. I want to pet the little yellow pony!" Scorpion cried out in agony.
Shang Tsung shook his head in disappointment and pushed him through the portal. He was now alone with Fluttershy. Shang Tsung reached his hand out and was about to touch Fluttershy. Fluttershy sunk low to the ground and was shaking in fear because she was uncertain what would happen to her. He stopped when his hand was only a few inches away from touching her. Shang Tsung sighed in utter depression and said to himself, "I better not do this and listen to the Princess." He brought his hand back and walked through the portal with his head hanging low.
Fluttershy opened up her eyes and saw that the man was now gone.
Suddenly, Angel Bunny came hopping out of a bush and wrapped his front legs around Fluttershy's hoof.
"Oh, Angel Bunny!" Fluttershy exclaimed. "You're back to normal again! Let's go home and have some of your favorite soup for dinner. I promise I'll go easy with the Cayenne Pepper this time."
Angel Bunny leapt up onto her back and burrowed himself into her mane as she trotted happily back home.
Back where he belongs, Scorpion fell to his knees and tore at his chest in agony. He would spend the rest of his existence in search of a portal to Equestria in order to find and pet the little yellow mare that he was so deeply in love with once more. Scorpion ended up getting some ink done on his arm. He got a tattoo of Fluttershy's cutie mark on his spear throwing arm. He would brutally kill anyone who mentioned that ponies suck. He had no patience or love for anyone who wasn't a Brony or a Pegasister. Johnny Cage often found himself stuck in Purgatory or Limbo because of his anti-pony remarks. Even though Johnny Cage said that he hated ponies and loved to hate on others for their love for the ponies, it was soon discovered that even he had his own massive collection of pony merchandise. He denied it even though it was true.
Princess Celestia came through the door with such anger on her face. "Discord, were you the one who has been messing with Fluttershy and alternative worlds?"
Discord looked as if he had been greatly offended and shocked that the Princess would even suggest such a thing. "Oh, no, no, no, your majesty!" he replied. "I would never even dream of doing such a thing. I promise," he said with his two crooked fingers crossed behind his back.
The Princess gave him a suspicious look and said, "If I notice anything else unusual going on, I'll have you scrubbing my palace floors for a very long time. Do you understand me?"
Discord put his hand to his chest as he bowed low to the ground and said, "Of course, my Princess."
Princess Celestia sat at the dining table. She was having a very important meeting with special royal guests. She levitated her cup of tea in the air with her magic and took a sip. Her taste buds confirmed that the new royal servant must have forgotten that she likes two cubes of sugar instead of one. Her eyes began to glow dark green with an evil kind of magic. She saw the royal servant placing a single sugar cube into each of the other ponies teas. Princess Celestia put her two front hooves together behind her back and her front hooves began to glow with a light blue colored magic. Princess Celestia quickly pushed her two front hooves out in front of her chest and yelled out loud, "HADOKEN!" A bright blue ball of energy came out of her two front hooves and shattered the fancy crystal container that was holding the sugar cubes. Cubes of sugar flew everywhere across the room and table. The dark green glowing magic in her eyes faded away and she shook her head several times.
Everypony was in shock at what they had just seen.
After realizing what had just occurred, Princess Celestia slammed both of her front hooves on the table and shouted out, "DISCORD!"
