“What?” I looked at my brother with a bit of confusion.

“Ya dude, Nighty needs to go to school to learn shtuff and you need something other then being a smart ass to do with your free time, be a supportive uncle!” Night explained, I thought about this for a few moments then looked back at him.

“And where would we be staying?”

“Well you could live with Twilight or you can live in the random house I bought there.” How thoughtful.

“Very well, we will leave-”

“Oh ya she has school 5 minutes.” He put on his troll face as I grew a look of shock.

“DAMMIT!” I yelled and ran down halls looking for Nighty. She was in the throne room with her sisters learning how to be a princess. I would have stopped and listened to the song but I had about 3 minutes left. “NIGHTY! TIME FOR SCHOOL!” I picked her up and she let out a heart attack sqweek, my horn glowed and in a flash We were outside the Ponyville school. “Made it.” I sighed and set her down. “I’ll come and get you after school ok?”

“Yes uncle Pee.” Oh my gods! She just called me that! I heard in Canterlot Night’s laughs of proudness.

“Alright, have a good day at school.” I turned and walked down path that lead to the school and into the town, I know I looked strange from the strange and feared looks I was getting. “I am not in the habitat of the Pinkieas Pieas. I must be vigilant and keep a eye out for a pink-” I was then tackled to the ground, holy shit this pink pony is stronger the Applejack and Rainbow Dash combined.

“Hiya mister Keeper! What are you doing here!? Twilight is going to spazz!” How the hell did she learn that word? I must give off IQ points or something.

“Well under order of Night I am to live here with his daughter as she attends school.” I spoke in a intelligent voice.

“Oh, OH! We should have a party for you and Nighty! I’ll call it ‘Welcome to Ponyville Keeper and Nighty party’!” She then ran off in a excited manner.

“I will never understand that pink ball of energy.” I mumbled and began walking again, it was during this time I found the house, it looked like one of those background houses in show. “Wonderful.” I muttered taking the key’s out of no where. I unlocked the door and walked in, the place was dark, and DUSTY! I turned to the windows and opened the cruten’s, the light flooded the room and I could see that most of everything was covered with sheets. “Argh this is going to be a long day...” I muttered as my horn began to glow.

------2 hours and a lot of dust later!------

I opened the door and let the cloud of dust rush out like a flood. “Well that’s done.” I laughed and noticed Nighty walking towards the house. “How the hay did you find the house and why are you here early?” As she got closer I saw shw was crying lightly and had a slight black eye. “Awwwww shhhhiiiiiit.” I rushed over to her and got a better look. “Honey what happened?”

“T-these kids at school had some other kid hit me.” We’re boned.

“Your father is going to bring execution to Equestria for this. Don’t worry sweety I’ll go to school with you tomorrow and talk with your teacher.” She nodded and with a sniff she walked into the house. “Your room is on the second floor to the right, first room!” I called after her and walked inside.

----The next day!----

I swear if they pick on me then I’m going back to Canterlot. I was walking towards the school with Nighty on my back giggling like she was being tickled. As we got closer to the school I could here the kids inside laughing and talking about shtuff then I heard Cheerilee call for silence. “Let’s do this!” I looked as tho I was going to kick the door down but instead I opened it gently.

“Hello? Oh my...” Cheerilee gasped at my presence and so did a lot of the kids. “M-may I help you sir?” She gulped.

“Yes, you can.” I spoke in my calm but scary voice. I extended my wing and set down Nighty. I heard some more gasps from the kids that most likely did it. “My niece came home the other day and-” She cut me off.

“Yes, she left before school ended.” Oh shit she went into teacher mode. “For that she is to be in det-” I cut her off with the royal Canterlot caps lock.

“DO NOT INTRUPT ME!” I boomed making the whole classroom shut up! But Nighty was trying not to laugh. “SHE CAME HOME WITH A BLACK EYE AND SHE WAS CRYING! DO YOU KNOW WHO HER FATHER IS?” I turned and glared at the class with my dragon eyes. “THE KING HIMSELF, NOW DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH TROBLE YOU WOULD BE IN IF HE FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS?” I saw that three kids were shivering in pure terror, I know it was them now cause the other kids were just trying to block out my caps lock. I looked back to Cheerilee with my normal eyes. “And this would have gone punished. To you, and the parents of the children responsible if I chose to write a letter. But it was and is a problem I can fix. If this is going to happen again then Father Night will be coming to Ponyville with a few guards.” I looked back to the children and saw the guilty ones hiding under their desks. I looked down at Nighty, who had a large smile on her face. “Have a nice day at school, and tell me if something happens.” I turned and looked at Cheerilee. “And I would like to talk to you after hours. Good day.” I turned and left the building but stook around a moment to listen to all the kids rush towards Nighty.

“You dad is the king?! NO WAY!”

“That’s awesome! Maybe next school trip we can meet him!” Then I heard Nighty talk.

“Ya! But don’t make him mad tho! He kicked some guy in the face for being mean to me.” I heard a lot of gulps.

“So who was the big scary guy just now?”

“That was my uncle the Keeper! He’s cool too, but not as cool as dad!” They all began to laugh. Well I feel like shit now. Meh, I walked home and looked around the interior.

“This place needs a library.” I muttered.

scaring kids is funny

-----Nighty’s point of view-----

My first full day of school and I become popular! School is going to rock! I looked at Cheerilee with anticipation as she finished the class, but she was wrong! My dad made Equestria! Along with my uncle and some other pony dad says he’ll tell me about me later, I think he get’s a bit teary eyed talking about her...

“Hey Moon!” I turned towards that one colt that hit me the other day! I flinched back when he put his hoof up. “I’m not going to hit you again, I wanted to say I sorry, for what I did yesterday.” He scratched the back of his head with his hoof.

“It’s ok, besides I don’t like to watch dad beat up ponies.” He got this terrified look.

“Yea, your not going to tell him about that, right?” He began to sweat when I put on my thinking face.

“Naw, I can’t do that to another pony.” He let out a sighed and waved bye to me.

“Hey Moon!” I turned to Snips and Snails, those two are funny!

“Hey guys! Whats up?” I asked cheerfully.

“The sky.” Snails laughed and Snips talked again.

“There’s this legend that a dead old guy that had TONS of bits and his house is just north of the school!” He spoke. I tilted my head at them.

“Yea, so?” He kept going.

“We dare you to go in and grab the safe full of bits!” They both began to laugh.

“Alright, but your going with me.” They then let out ‘aww’s’. I haden’t noticed but Cheerilee was listening to the whole thing.


I was out front of the school waiting for Cheerilee and Nighty, the kids were running around and playing outside the school when Nighty came out trailed by Snips and Snails. “Ok boys, we have work to do and we need a plan! To my house!” ...........Evil little succubus! I don’t know what’s going on but I know THAT wont happen, right?




I gulped and was about to follow her when I remembered I needed to talk with Cheerilee. I turned and walked into the building and saw her writing stuff down on a paper. “You wanted to talk to me mister Keeper?” She looked up at me with a mix of fear and confusion.

“Yes, I wish to become a substitute teacher here, and to warn you that Nighty and send letter’s to her father without my knowing. So if something happens she can bypass me and go straight to her father. Now about that job.” She gulped and nodded, handing (Hoofing?) me the paper.

“I must tell you, your niece his planing on breaking into Eldorado’s house down the way, maybe you should talk her out of it?” I thought this over fore a moment before grinning.

“You know, I have a better idea.” I turned. “Thank you for your time.” I walked out of the door and towards Eldorado’s house, as I learned his name. As I got closer to the house I got this strange feeling, I was near somepony who worked at the Rainbow Factory. I shivered and knocked on the door. I heard some hooves hitting ground and walking then the door swung open.

“Yea? Oh it’s one of yer alicorn’s. Come to offer me mah job back?” He stunk, but I shrugged it off.

“No, I need your help scaring some colts and a filly, care to let me in?” He thought for a moment.

“Eh, Ah suppose ah could.” He turned and walked into the house, I followed with a slight grin on my face.


“Ok, we ready?” I looked at Snips and Snails nodded. “Alright, let’s do this!” I turned and ran to the other side of the dark house, under the cover of night. I slowly opened a window and slipped in, followed by Snips and Snails. The place was dark, as to be expected. “Snails, flashlight!” HE nodded and pulled out a flashlight from his saddle bag. I took it with my magic and switched it on.

“Wow, sure is spooky in here.” Snips muttered shivering a bit.

“Don’t be such a baby.” I muttered looking for the stairs. I spotted them and quickly made my way over to them.

“Where are you going?” Snails whispered right beside me.

“A safe is always in the attic! Dah!” I slowly made my way up the creeky stairs, being followed by Snips and Snails. When we made it I saw the attic door was slightly open. “Guys.......Dead people don’t leave doors open right?” They both gulped along with me and shook their heads. “Ok, just wanted to know is all.” I crept slowly over to the door and opened it the rest of the way. “The safe!” I Pointed with my hoof over to the large safe that was sitting in the middlw of the room. “Come on you two, let’s get out of here.” I picked it up with no problem, alicorn magic, nuff said! I learned that from my dad and how he says it about magic. Then a ghostly moan filled the house making all three of us freeze for a few moment then all of us shouting.

“RUN!” We all ran down the stairs and out the window, then trying to catch our breath.

“Whoa, never expected that to happen.” Snails muttered and both Snips and I nodded. Just then a pari of head lights turned on pointing right. At. Us!

“Everpony for herself!” I yelled and bolted the other way, Snips and Snails right behind me the whole time. The ghostly looking car chased us for a few minutes then finally a mist came from it and it stopped following us, but that didn’t stop us from almost breaking down the door to my house and hiding in my room closet like a bunch of scared fillies.


I was sitting in a near by tree laughing my smart ass off! That was priceless! Eldorado got out of his car and kicked the front of it yelling ‘Dangit!’ I flew over to him still laughing a bit.

“Thanks Eldorado, I’ll get your safe back to you next afternoon.” He nodded opened the front of his car. I walked towards the house, still laughing.


“Hey Snails?”

“Ya Snips?”

“We’re hugging a girl!” Oh for the love of! I bucked the two out of the closet.

“And thats were you ruined it for yourselves!” I yeld at the two and turned to the safe. “Let’s crack this baby open!” I smiled with excitement and blasted the safe, it was some what affective cause the face cracked open a bit. “Alright, you two get it open I’v been doing everything!” I sat down and watched them push it open.

“Aw man! Its just old confederate money!” We all ‘aww’ed. I heard uncle Keeper walk in down stairs.

“Nighty! I’m home!” Snips and Snails looked at me with grins.

“Nighty?” Snips giggled and I zipped his mouth shut with magic.

“A word of this at school and I’l have you both put on the moon.” They both gulped and nodded. What a eventful end to a eventful day!

(Short) Morning is scary

After the wedding Nighty and I said our goodbyes and I took her home, opening the door showed the living room, now almost converted into a library. “Books from all over the world, good times.” I sighed and looked at Nighty. “Go to bed, it’s late.” She nodded and hooped off towards her room. I walked over to my couch and sat down, reading a book I had begun a little earlier when I heard a knock at the door, I got up and walked over to it, unlocking it. “Welcome Morning.” I pushed the door open to revel Morning with a glare.

“Hello, Peter.” This made me smirk and almost shit myself.

“And a fine howdy do to you too Ann.” I grinned as she looked a bit more pissed.

“How do you know so much?” She questioned me.

“I am all knowing, what else do you expect?” I gave her a little glare of my own. “So I ask, why are you here?”

“How long have you known I was watching?”

“Quite a long time, ever sines Night restored my memories. This surprises you?” I gave her a curios look.

“Not so much, it just sets back some plans.” She continued to glare at me before getting a soft smile. “Hello Nighty.” I turned to see Nighty staring at us with curiosity.

“Uncle Pee? Who’s that?” The one time she wants to be adorable and it ends up humiliating me.

“This is-” Morning cut me off.

“I’m your mo-” I cut HER off!

“Nighty, go to bed I’ll tell you later.” I was glaring at her so Nighty wouldn’t see.

“Well, ok. Good Night!” She jumped off back into her room.

“I could kill you for that.” She hissed at me.

“I know. But don’t you think it would be a little more fun to get married to Night first? If that is in any of your plans.” I said with a smirk.

“Of course! I love him more then you know!” She glared at me then smirked. “Oh your good.” She Sighed and turned away.

“I know, I have to be, and remember, I have my own plans.” She spun around and glared at me.

“And those would be?” I gave her a playful wink.

“Thats a secret, but it will be so much fun, and you I know will agree.” I took a step back. “But I have to get to work in the morning. I will have to bid you farewell” I closed the door slowly. “Goodnight.” I shut the door and locked it. I walked over and into my room, closing and locking that too before falling over and almost screaming. “HOLY SHIT! THAT WAS SCAREY AS ALL HELL!” I calmed down and got into bed. The next morning I woke up with a evil smile on my face. “Time for school!”
