The night court was progressing rather well. Luna was hoping that she would be able to finish up all of her formal appointments earlier than normal, and return to her chambers.

After all there were Ponies out there who needed her during the night, as she was the one who could help chase away a nights worth of nightmares.

But with that, all peace was brought abruptly to an end, by the sound of Prince Blue Bloods voice. Luna and several of her night guards all winced due to the sudden sound of him shouting at the top of his lungs.

“stand aside at once, I Prince Blue Blood demand by my royal right to enter these chambers! He screamed, as he forced his way into the room.

Prince Blue Blood forced his way into the throne room. Luna gently waved off the spluttering apology from the young guard outside the door.

“Auntie Luna I must speak with you at once" Prince Blue Blood shrieked.

Luna stood upon the throne, her eyes closed, as she took a deep slow breath in. Opening her eyes once again to see her nephew stood in the middle of the room with his face set.

''My Dear nephew, we are about to wrap things up for this evening. Unless you have something that requires me, and the courts attention, that can not wait, then continue. But if not, then please leave at once" Said Luna, calmly, but firmly.

Luna knew her nephew far too well, he would not take how she had spoken to him very well at all. She waited to see how long it would take for him to take the hint, and leave.

“A-auntie Luna, I must report that one of the new maids has failed in her duties to the crown. My chambers have not yet been cleaned, and it has come to my attention that she has spent most of the day cleaning the guest rooms on the second floor. Why is this, I demand an answer"? Asked Prince Blue Blood.

There was complete silence in the room, not one Pony made a single murmur. Prince Blue Blood, looked around at all the other court members, as they looked down upon him turning there heads away in disgust

He looked at Luna, who now was finding it increasingly hard to keep her cool in front of her court members, and the guards. Luna took a big deep breath in once again, as she answered her nephews question.

''Prince Blue Blood my dear nephew, you force your way into these court proceedings, with something very important for our attention, and this very importing thing is just because your chambers have not been cleaned!
If you had been paying attention, you would have noticed we have a very important guest coming to the castle, which means we needed all of our focus on making there stay very comfortable. Now I have answered your question, now that you know the reason, you may leave'', Continued Luna.

Prince Blue Blood looked upon his Auntie, with complete surprise upon his face. He could not believe that she had spoken to him in such a manner.

''Well then, I can see how that would be important, but still by my royal rights, my chambers must be cleaned. I am not happy that I have to sleep in a mucky bed'', Replied Prince Blue Blood.

Luna sighed heavily, she was well aware that after the maids had finished cleaning and preparing the guest rooms, they had been given the rest of the night off. Luna knew if the young maid had gone back to Prince Blue Bloods chambers to clean it, she would have been working much longer hours than she should have been.

Luna took a mental note of this, and to make the young maid clean his chambers to keep him happy. In return she would give the maid a week off for her hard work.

''If that is all dear nephew then myself, and the court will bid you a good night. I have kept a mental note about this, ‘‘issue; you have brought to my attention. I will have a word with this young maid, and make sure she cleans your chambers this evening'', Said Luna, as she stood up from her throne, the other court members stood up as well, and started to make there way out of the room.

As Luna was about to leave, a sudden magical disturbance caught her attention. She felt it high above the castle. It appeared to be coming from the very edge of the sky. A place only an Alicorn could go due to there strong magical resistance to the cold.

Luna was no longer listening to her nephew. She was too focused on the strange magical energy that was slowly building up in the sky. What ever it was, it was falling fast, and as it fell, Luna could feel its magical aura change, and reshape. It felt as if a life was slowly being born from this powerful surge of magic.

The magical surge was beginning to flex, and twist. Luna continued to watch from her minds eye, a shape began to form within the white sphere. At first it was nothing more than a black mass, but slowly it began to split and divide. Slowly a new life was born within the magical sphere.

Luna could only watch as the strange ball of magical energy continued to feed on growing life within its self. By now the dark shape had started to look like a very young Pony. As more magic was forced into its new body, the Pony began to spasm.

Luna could only watch in shock, wondering what she should do, as a pair of small wings and a horn slowly emerged from the young Ponies body. Luna continued to watch as the newly born Alicorn was suddenly engulfed in the remains of the magical sphere. There was a sudden burst of magical energy, and the Alicorn’s small body was sent plummeting towards Canterlot castle.

Luna witnessing the baby Alicorns birth was the only Pony in the court who knew what was actually going on. She began to react, moving swiftly out of the way, seconds before the glass roof above where she was once standing shattered. The guards moved out of the way of the shards of broken glass that was raining down, and ran right to, Prince Blue Blood, and pinned him down, protecting him.

Luna watched in horror as the newly born Alicorn crashed through the glass roof. Her eyes widened in shock at the sight. Its coat was bleached white like bone, as was its wings, tail, and mane.

Its horn was glowing brightly with the last of the magical power surging into the sphere, and becoming one with the Alicorns body. Luna came into contact with the newborn Alicorn.

Luna ran over to the young Alicorn wrapping her legs and wings around him. She felt all the shards of glass that was falling cut her body. She screamed in pain, but that was not important, as her focus was to protect the Alicorn, even if it cost her, her life.

Luna rolled herself up concealing the young Alicorn close to her body, the blood from the shards of glass that fell, and cut her smeared across his body. When Luna was finally free of the falling glass, she was able to stop herself from rolling. She was able to get a better look at the small Alicorn, and check him over to see if he was not injured. To Luna's relief he was fine, apart from some of her own blood that covered him.

Even by Alicorn standards he was a strange creature. His coat was pure white, as was his tail, and mane. His horn was also white, and was currently still glowing as it continued to absorb the remaining magic from the strange sphere that had been responsible for his birth.

For a moment his eyes flickered open. Luna then found her self reflected in a pair of teal eyes much like her own. His eyes were open for only a moment, and she heard the softest whisper from his lips.


The Foal’s eyes closed once again, and Luna felt his small body begin to tremble. Slowly his coat became covered with sweat as his body began to heat up.

Luna’s eyes widened with shock, as she recognized the signs of a magical surge. There was too much magic flowing through his small body, and he was unable to handle it.

“Princess Luna, are you alight"?

Luna looked up at her guards, and her eyes widen with fear, as she watched the shards of shattered glass, slowly rise off the throne room floor. The Unicorn guards all froze, as they released what was going on. The earth, and Pegasus guards not being able to sense magic, did not understand what was going on.

“Guards, Go, and bring my sister here at once, also do not allow any other pony to enter here, go quickly”.

''Yes, Princess Luna, right away''Said two of the guards, in unison.

The two guards started to run out of the room, but then they both hesitated, and looked back at Luna. They where torn between assuring the safety of Princess Luna's life, and Prince Blue Blood, which was still cowering in the corner.

''Go now! Please do not worry about me; I have some remaining guards here to assist if I need them. I need my sister here immediately" Screamed Luna at the two guards,

''Yes, of course Princess, right away'', both guards reply.

Luna looked down at the young Alicorn foal, he was beginning to panic due to the increasing surge of magical power resonating from him.

''Shh now little one, do not fret. I will make sure you are all better, you'll see'' Says Luna, with a reassuring smile.

Luna felt a warm feeling come over her. She couldn't quite understand why this was happening, but with the little Alicorn calling her Mummy really affected her.

It made her feel that she needed to protect him, and help to ease his suffering with the magical surge, still running through his body.

Luna then gently dipped her head, in order to touch the young foals horn, with her own. She then began to drain the magical power that was surging around his body, and into her own self.

As Luna continued to drain the magnitude of the magical power from the young foal, she suddenly heard a familiar voice.

''Lulu, what is going on here"? Asked, Princess Celestia.

Celestia’s words were cut short, as the little foal Alicorn, let out an almighty scream, as a powerful blast of magical energy, shot out of his body, and out through his horn. The resulting explosion would surely of destroyed the entire castle, and most of Canterlot, if Luna had not of acted as she did.

As the dust and debris cleared, Luna, and Celestia could only look onwards, as the once grand throne room collapsed in on its self, leaving only rubble. The roof directly above them, bounced harmlessly.

As a powerful energy shield, that had been summoned just in the nick of time saved there lives, ''Oh, thank you Tia'', as Luna acknowledged her sisters quick actions. Luna's thoughts suddenly went back to the young Alicorn foal. She ran over to him, his little body lay lifeless on the floor. She began thinking the worst, that the surge of magical energy that had escaped from his body might have taken its toll on him.

Luna paused and looked up at her concerned sister, as the remains of the throne room finished crashing to the floor. Celestia looked down at her sister, her voice was filled with concern and worry.

“Lulu, where in Canterlot, did that Colt come from"?

Several hours had passed since the explosion happened in the throne room; the royal guards were now on full alert. The aftermath of the throne room collapsing caused a lot of panic in the citizens of Canterlot.

A large portion of the royal guards were sent there to try and ease the fears of its citizens who had witnessed everything that had just happened.


Princess Luna's voice echoed through the halls of the castle. The unfortunate guards who had tried to take the unconscious Colt away from her chambers were thrown out in a blaze of her magic might. The guards struggled to untangle themselves and get back onto there hooves. The sound of soft Hoover’s echoed across the corridor, the guards quickly bowed as Princess Celestia walked towards them.

“Princess Celestia, we apologize for our actions, but we must do something about that Alicorn Colt immediately", said the captain of the guard,

“Captain I understand your concerns, but please let me deal with this, my sister can be hard to reason with sometimes’’, Replied Celestia,

The captain of the guard paused for a moment, before nodding softly and with a motion of his head, signaled the other guards to stand down, and for them to follow him. Celestia waited patiently for the guards to depart, once the sound of there hooves had faded away she took a breath and steadied herself, before knocking softly on her sister’s door.

“Lulu it me, Tia, may I come please come in”?

There was silence for a moment, then the doors that had been encased in a dark blue magic, softly swinging open. Celestia calmly walked into her sisters chambers. Luna stood protectively beside the little unconscious Alicorn, her wings spread defensively and her horn pointing at her, slightly glowing. Celestia paused and her gaze switched to the small Colt as he lay unconscious on Luna’s bed.

“Lulu, I just wish to talk”.

Celestia’s voice was soft and gentle, she watched as Luna slowly lowering her wings and slowly lifting her head up, taking away the current of magic that surrounded her horn. For what seemed like hours but was only mere minutes the two sisters stood silently watching each other, and then Luna spoke her voice filled with both anger and worry.

''Tia, I will not permit you to take this Colt away from me”, Said Luna.

Celestia sighed, and dipping her head softly, she paused for a moment before answering her sister.

''Lulu, please calm yourself, I will not be taking that Colt away from you, I promise you'', Luna's expression then began to change, as she became relieved at hearing those words.

''Do you speak the truth, Tia? Because if you do go against your word, I will have no choice but to defend him with my life'', Said Luna,

''Lulu, it will not come to that. I give you my word; I will not take him away from you. All I ask is that we talk about this'', Replied Celestia.

For a moment there was silence, as both Luna, and Celestia stared at each other. Luna slowly backed off, allowing her sister to enter.

''Thank you Lulu for allowing me to enter, all I want to do is talk, talk about what we need to do about this little Colt, and what we plan to do to protect him'', Said Celestia,

''This Colt will be staying with me, Tia. I will be the one who will protect him. I shall raise him as my own, in order for him to understand his powers'', Said Luna,

''But how will you protect him? Don’t forget you have responsibilities here. You are the one who brings forth the night, and protect those from a night full of nightmares. How would you manage that, and raise a young Colt?" Asked Celestria,

Luna paused, as her sisters’ words made her realise her negligence. Celestia spoke the truth there was no denying that. She would be busy most nights attending the night court, and then her duties in the dream world would no doubt be another obstacle.

Luna turned to her sister knowing she must have some kind of plan that would allow her to bond with the nameless Colt.

''I agree Tia; I would not be able to protect him on my own, and carry on my duties. What would you propose I should do about this"? Asked Luna,

''Well Lulu I do have one idea. Would you be against this little Colt being sent to Ponyville? My reasons for this idea, is Twilight Sparkle and her friends are learning so much from there friendships together. Twilight is a very responsible Pony, and she raised Spike all on her own, whom is in fact a baby dragon".

Before Celestia could finish, Luna gave her decisive answer.

“Tia I agree with you. Twilight and her friends would be good guardians to him”, Said Luna,

Celestia paused, surprised at her sisters’ acceptance of her plan.

'Lulu, you like my idea". Asked Celestia.

''I do like it; I think Twilight would indeed make a strong and trustworthy guardian'' Replied Luna,

“Then it is settled, I shall make the arrangement’s as soon as possible”, Said Celestria,

Luna paused once again, before voicing a small demand. Something she hoped her sister would agree to.

''But I must ask this, I want access to him; I too want to raise him, and help him to control his powers" Asked Luna, with great pride.

‘‘I do not see a problem with that. I would not want it any other way, when he is living in Ponyville, you can carry on your duties, and when you are free from them, you can also help his development'', Replied Celestia,

''Thank you Tia, this means the world to me'', Said Luna, as she gave her sister a hug,

''You are very welcome, dear sister'', Replied Celestia.

The little Colt let out a small whine, and both Luna and Celestia quickly turned there attention to him. He was shifting slightly as if he was in distress, or in some pain. Luna gently lowered her head, as she gently nuzzled the Colts snowy white coat.

His fever had dropped but his coat was still sweaty. Celestia knew, as Luna did that the Colt was not out of danger just yet. A second magical surge was possible unless he was taught basic control, and soon.

“He’s burning up sister, but he is strong, that is clear. The injuries that he received from the fall have already healed as a result of the magical surge and no doubt he will be very hungry when he finally wakes”, Said Luna, concerned.

Celestia was well aware, that her sister was giving her a silent message to leave, and allow her time alone with the colt. Celestia was happy to do so, but the question was of the Colts sudden birth, it had to be investigated, and dealt with. But for the moment Celestia silently agreed to leave Luna and the nameless Colt alone.

“I shall arrange for some food to be sent to your chambers, Lulu. I need to let the citizens know that we are both unharmed and no pony has been injured. I imagine that it will take a few weeks to deal with all the issues that are, no doubt going to arise from this little incident. I doubt I will be contacting Twilight Sparkle, at least not for the next few weeks”, Said Celestia.

Luna watched in silence as her sister left. Luna was silent for a few minutes, as she collected her thoughts. Finally she turned her attention to the sleeping Colt, with soft steps slowly approached him.

She once again tried to wake him by gently nuzzling him, but he did not stir so Luna decided to take a more direct approach and gently settled her larger body beside the sleeping Colt. She watched him carefully, as he sensed her warming presence beside him. The colt unconsciously snuggled closer to her side. Luna lifted a wing and gently draped it over the little Colts small body.

Luna took a slow deep breath before relaxing her body. She dipped her head and let her horn gently touch the tip of the Colts horn. There was a brief flash, and her mind slipped into the Colts’ dreams.

Luna was unprepared for the pure chaos that was the Colt’s dream world. It had no form instead it was, as if a large and powerful storm was wiping through the darkness. A flash of bright white light illuminated the world for mere seconds. Luna watched as the lightening strikes grew more and more powerful, until the very darkness seemed to shatter around her.

She then was falling towards Equestria, the ground was far below her and the city of Canterlot was just a small dot, but it was growing bigger. Then there was the feeling of fear and confusion, Luna finally felt the presence of the Colt. He was oblivious to her, he fell in his dream world, Luna could only watch as, fear and confusion grew more powerful until finally his small body impacted with the throne rooms glass roof.

The shock and pain of the Colt echoed across the dream world. Luna winced as the pain back lashed through her connection with him. Luna was prepared to catch him before he hit the ground, but the pain of smashing through the glass roof caused the Colt to wake, his screams pulled Luna from his dream world and back into the real world.

Luna could not understand what she had just witnessed. She knew this young Colt, had amazing strength and a lot of potential. But the hard part was finding out who he was, and where he came from.

Luna paused for a moment as she felt the small Colt shift slightly; she then turned her attention to him, and smiled. The young Colt looked up at her, his expression was of utter confusion, and then he succumbed, and smiled back at Luna.

At that point with them both looking into each others eyes, Luna felt a warm feeling come over her. Was this love? She was unsure, but it felt right.

She also seemed to get a feeling of acceptance coming from the young Colt. Luna then tucked him up in her blankets. Softly and gently touched his little horn with her own, and said, ''Good night, little one'', and walked out of the room shutting the door quietly behind her.

Luna quietly walked down the corridor and caught up with Celestia. She spoke softly as not to wake the Colt that was sleeping peacefully.

''Tia, wait a second? Luna asked.

Celestia paused at the sound of her sisters’ soft voice and she turned her head in Luna’s direction.

''What is it Lulu? Asked Celestria, concerned,

"I went into the young Colts dream world. I cant understand it. I have entered many dream worlds in my time, but this one has to be the strangest I have ever come across''.

''That is so surprising, what exactly did you witness Lulu? Asked Celestia,

''Well that's it, I saw nothing. All I saw was a blinding white light that came from him when he released his power. The moment he fell through the glass roof in the throne room. I have to say, I'm unsure what to do next. I actually think we should hold out on sending him to Ponyville, at least until I find out a little more about him''.

''Hmm, that is a situation isn't it, okay I will hold off on sending him to Ponyville until we understand more about this young Colt, as I already said, I was unsure to send him there, until we find out more about his past'', Replied Celestia.

''Thank you Tia, I will keep an eye on his dream world, and keep reporting back to you with what I find out. The main thing we need to find out, is who exactly he is, and where he came from''.

''I agree Lulu, take your time, don't rush this, when the time is right we shall then send him to Ponyville’’, Replied Celestria,

''That would be great Tia, Thank you”

The two sisters hugged once again, and parted ways. Luna quietly slipped back into her chambers. She approached her bed and smiled softly as she watched the nameless colt sleeping peacefully. She didn’t sense any discomfort, or fear coming from him. Luna then settled herself on the bed beside him pausing for a moment.

She was unsure if visiting the young ones dreams again was a very good idea. But she wanted to introduce herself before he woke. After all that brief glimpse he had seen of her when he woke briefly could have been dismissed as a dream. Luna finally made a decision and once again she lights her horn with magic and guided the little ones sleeping mind into her own dream world.

The darkness began to slowly lift and the small Colt suddenly found himself in a large open field. It was full of flowers that were the same colour of the night sky above, the little Colt stared up in wonder at the night sky and his eyes were drawn to the large full moon. Its light shining down upon him, the colt felt warmth spread through him along with a sense of safety and security; he knew he was safe as long as the moon shone brightly in the night sky.

“Greetings to you, little one”, Said Luna, as she looked down upon him, with a radiant smile.

The Colts’ eyes widened as the moons light suddenly intensified, as a large midnight blue Pony slowly appeared before him. She softly flapped her wings as she descended to the ground. The nameless Colt watched in wonder as she landed upon the ground, she was many times his size but he felt no fear in her presence. He felt only a strong sense of love and compassion; he knew the winged mare meant absolutely no harm to towards him.

The Colt studied the larger Pony and he noticed not only her wings, but also her horn. From somewhere within his mind the word Alicorn came from no where, but he knew that was what this mysterious mare was.

The Colts eyes widened as he noticed the royal attire of an Alicorn, and bowed, and once again. This knowledge was pulled deep from within his mind; Luna chuckled softly as the small Colt bowed before her, for the third time, shaking her head softly she lay down upon her belly and spoke softly to him.

“There is no need to bow before me little one, you are after all an Alicorn, like me.”…

The Colt suddenly looked up at her, his eyes widened with surprise; Luna smiled a little as he studied the small wings attached to his body. He lifted his small hooves and gently touches the small horn on his head.

Luna was quiet for a short while, as she watched the Colt explore his new body, it was becoming more and clearer to Luna that this little one had been thrown into Equestria from another world. The transformation had no doubt affected his memories, and yet he had some knowledge of what she was. He recognised her royal attire, and had a general idea as to what an Alicorn was.

“Little one, can you tell me your name”, Asked Luna.

The nameless Colt paused, with a look of concentration appearing upon his face. Luna watched for a few minutes as he struggled to remember his name, and who he was, eventually the little Colt began to sob, tears filled his eyes.

‘‘I, I don’t remember", Sobbed the little Colt.

Luna felt her heart break at the sight of his tears, he was lost and alone in a world that was not his own. What ever or who ever had brought him from his own world and had caused a great deal of mental trauma to his young mind, Luna pushed away the anger she felt towards the one responsible.

The Colts misery, instead made her focus on making him feel better. Luna silently stood up and softly walked over to the sobbing Colt, nuzzling him gently before resting beside him, draping a warm wing over him, and watched as he snuggled closer to her side.

‘‘Shh, now little one, stop your tears there is no need to fret, I am here for you, and I will help you’’, Said Luna, as she cradled the young Colt in her wings.

The little Colts’ sobbing slowly stopped and he looked up at Luna, his eyes widened, with tears still rolling down his face. Luna gentle brushed the tears away with a hoof before kissing him softly on his forehead.

“Who are you, are you my mummy”? Asked the young Colt.

The Colts’ question caught Luna by surprise; she had to collect her thoughts before answering. She could not bring herself to say yes, or no, it would take time after all a thousand years of isolation in the moon had changed her, she was not the same Pony she used to be.

“I am Princess Luna, guardian of dreams, and ruler of the night”, Replied Luna.

Her answer caused the little Colts’ ears to go back against his head, his eyes showed sadness. Luna felt a little guilt from her answer, what he had been hoping to hear was yes, but she could not rush things just yet.

“Little one, I can be your guardian and your friend, in time maybe I can by your mother too”, Said Luna, as she tried to reassure the young Colt.

The last part she whispered so softly that the Colt did not hear her, but the part he did hear, with her being his friend and his guardian cheered him up greatly and a smile spread across his face.

‘‘Thank You Princess Luna, I hope we can be good friends, and you can be my guardian. I am so happy to have you with me", Replied the young Colt, as he smiled up at her.

Luna smiled, looking down at him, she nuzzled him once again, and decided that it was time to wake him and let him meet her in the real world. She let her magic flood her dream world, and suddenly they were pulled back from the dream world and into the real world.

The Moon began its slow descent from the sky and in its place the sun slowly began to rise bathing all of Equestria in its warmth and light. Luna stood silently on the balcony watching the sun slowly rise, her mind was full of questions and uncertainties it had been three years since the Elements had freed her from the corruption of nightmare moon, Luna was healing but she still felt guilt everyday for allowing herself to be corrupted so easily. Turning back towards her bedroom she paused and watched the nameless colt as he slept peacefully on her bed, there were so many questions that needed answering but they would be beyond her reach until the nameless colt could control his dreams and allow her to uncover the secrets to his sudden creation and birth.

Pushing the thoughts from her mind Luna approached the sleeping colt and gentle nuzzled the spot between his ears, the nameless colt slowly woke from his sleep and as he blinked the sleep from his eyes, his face lit up at the sight of Luna.

“Good morning little one I hope your feeling a little better this morning”?

The nameless colt nodded softly before blushing slightly as his stomach grumbled loudly, Luna chuckled at the sound it was no sunrise to her that he was hungry, the magical surge that had nearly cost him his life had no doubt drained his little body of all its natural energy. Luna new that a second magical surge would happen eventually and to prevent any further incidents the Nameless colt needed to learn to control his magical power, but firstly he needed to eat after that she would talk with him.

“Come little one you must be starving and I am sure the cooks will have prepared a delicious breakfast”.

Luna gently levitated the colt onto her back and she quietly slipped out of her bedroom and into the corridor. Luna stopped suddenly as she stepped into the corridor and the nameless colt whimpered in fear. The corridor was filled with royal guards, they stood side by side like a sold wall of golden armor and as Luna slowly stepped from her room she felt a flare of anger as she noticed the guards eyes flicker to the trembling colt on her back.

Luna glared at the guards as she slowly walked passed them, and they flinched a little as the princess of the night slowly walked passed them, Luna was silent but while she walked she memorized each guard and promised herself that all of them would not sleep soundly for the rest of the week. As Luna approached the end of the corridor she rested her gaze on the guard captain and she narrowed her eyes as he stepped towards her.

“My apologies your highness but we were instructed by Prince Blu....

Luna's voice cold and icy cut across the captain and he stepped back his body began to tremble as the princes of the night loomed over him.

“Captain you will dismiss your troops, you are my sisters guards and she is your commander, any further orders from my nephew are to be ignored”.

Luna continued to walk towards the royal dinning room the sound of the guards panicked hooves filled her ears, as Luna continued towards the royal dinning room her attention was directed to the shivering colt upon her back.

“Hush little one I will keep you safe you have my word”.

Luna felt the colt shivers slowly ease away at the sound of her voice, and she felt his little body slowly relax and his breathing easy until it was slow and steady. Luna let her mind swirl with thoughts as she approached the door to the royal dinning room. It was one of the few places both herself and her sister could get a little quiet time with out the presence of the royal guards it was a place both she and her sister could relax and just be themselves.

Luna paused at the door and turned her head to face the nameless colt as he lay upon her back. Her words were kind but held a serious tone.

“We are about to enter the royal dinning room, normally only myself and my sister are allowed access and to my knowledge foals have never been allowed inside. You must not speak of what you see inside is that understood” ?.

The nameless colt nodded quickly but did not speak, Luna gently wrapped her magical aura around him and lifted him off her back and placed him on the floor, Luna towered above the nameless colt being many times his size, but no fear came from him only the sense of comfort and safety while in her presence. The door was briefly encased in Luna’s light blue aura as it opened and she motioned for the nameless colt to follow her into the dinning room.

The room was small and comfortable, a small table graced the center of the room surround by large comfortable pillows, the room was painted with colors of both the day and the night. Sitting at one side of the table was Princess Celestia her normal multicolored main and tail were now a light pink and were not moving as if caught in a breeze. The nameless colt suddenly jumped in sunrise as Luna’s mane and tail also stopped moving and lost there star filled appearance to become light blue in color.

Both Luna and Celestia chuckle softly at the colts surprise to Luna’s sudden change in appearance, Luna settles herself upon a large red cushion directly across from her elder sister and gently motions for the nameless colt to sit beside her.

“Introductions before explanations little one. This is my elder sister Princess Celestia but you can just call her Celestia, she has already met you but you were unconscious at the time”.

Luna watched silently as the nameless colt slowly approached her elder sister, Celestia remind silent much like her younger sister Celestia also made close attention to the colts wobbly legs he was to much like a newborn and much like her sister this to worried Celestia, with slowly and gentle movements Celestia wrapped her forelegs around the colts small body and gently hugged him. For a moment Celestia was silent as she gently stroked a hoof across the colts back before whispering softly her voice like that of a mother comforting her foal.

“I am happy to see you are feeling better little one and I promise that both me and my sister will do everything within our power to help you”.

Celestia slowly released the colt and watched quietly as he returned to Luna’s side, much like her sister Celestia had many question flowing through her mind she was well aware that the magical surge that had almost killed the young colt had been so powerful that it had been sensed by almost ever unicorn in Equestria, within minutes of the magical surge she had received a frantic letter from her fellow princess and former student Twilight Sparkle. Celestia had written back and assured Twilight that everything was fine and for the moment she had asked that Twilight reassure the citizens of Ponyville that both herself and Luna were fine and the strange magical surge was nothing to worry about.

Celestia new that Twilight would eventually give in to her curiosity and pay her a visit but for now the mysterious birth of the nameless colt was her main concern. Celestia looked towards her sister and softly motioned towards the small dinner bell, understanding her sister’s meaning Luna draped a wing over the nameless colt and hid him from view, moments later Celestia rang the dinner bell.

A small door tucked away at the back of the room was engulfed in a light yellow aura before slowly opening, three unicorn’s dressed in the outfits of a butler quickly walked into the room, levitating above them were three large tray filled with food. They quickly levitated the food on to the table and with a nod of thanks the two royal sisters silently waited until they had left the room.

As soon as the three unicorns left the room, Luna moved her wing and the nameless colts attention was quickly drawn towards to smell of food spread across the table his eyes looked over the many dishes layered out and his clear eagerness to eat caused both royal sister to giggle.

“Time to fill the empty stomach little one and I think a nice bowl of porridge will be a good start”.

Luna levitated a bowl of freshly made porridge towards the nameless colt, he sniffed it slowly and his eyes lit up as the scent of fresh cinnamon and apples filled his nostrils and without hesitation he shoved his nose and mouth into the bowl and began to eat. Both sister appeared to watch the nameless in silence, however both sisters were speaking privately to each other with in the peace of there own minds.

“Have his dreams revealed anything to you LuLu”?

“Nothing that explains his birth the only thing he seems to remember is falling....and then waking up in my hooves”.

The two royal sisters remain silent for a moment and quietly watch the nameless colt eat, the colt suddenly pulls away from the bowl of porridge and Luna smiles softly seeing that it is now empty. Luna selects a plate of fresh pancakes covered with syrup and places it in front of the colt he eyes widen with happiness at the sight of the pancakes and he begins to eat with gusto.

“He appears to have a healthy apatite Tia for a colt of his age at least”.

Celestia gave silent nod she was more concerned about the colts eyes, they were so very familiar to her because she saw them everyday when she looked at her younger sister.

“LuLu why does he have your eyes”.

Celestia had known her sister for many lifetimes and even after a thousand years of exile he mannerisms had not changed. Luna quickly turned her head and avoided her elder sisters gaze while answering the question, Celestia new all to well that Luna was uncomfortable with the question.

“Sister....Tia they may look similar but....

“They are not just similar little sister they are identical it is as if he was born from your very womb and shares your blood”.

Luna went silent and her attention turned to the nameless colt as he feed upon the plate of pancakes, she studied his eyes and as her sister had said there were her own eyes she had noticed this of course but the very meaning behind it filled her with a sense of discomfort, forcing the issue from her thoughts Luna quickly changed the subject.

“Tia there are more pressing matters you are well aware as I am the child will experience a second magical surge if he is not taught control”.

Celestia closed her eyes and sighed softly Luna had not changed as always she attempted to hid from the truth when it was in plain sight, but for now Celestia was willing to put the matter to one side and discuss it at a later time for now there were indeed more pressing matters to attend to.

“That is a matter I shall leave to you LuLu teach him to tame his powers and to master the basics....we shall discuss other matters once that is done”.

“Tia surely you will make a better teacher then I after all you have trained many.....

“LuLu do not let your past control you. Darkness may be your strength but it no longer controls you”.

Celestia said no more and ignored her younger sisters arguments as she turned towards the door her mane resuming its normal rainbow appearance before she slipped into the corridor she whispered softly her words heard only by Luna.

“Teach him well little sister and guard him well for he may be the one to heal your heart”.

Celestia said no more and silently slipped out of the room leaving Luna alone with the nameless colt. Luna was silent for a long time her thought a swirl of confusion and uncertainty, turning her attention to the nameless colt Luna found him sitting quietly by her side watching her with interest.

“Have you eaten all you wish to little one”.

The nameless colt nodded his head in answer to her question and Luna smiled softly at him before turning her attention to the table and its many dishes, Luna ate quickly not wanting to delay the colts training any further if she was to prevent another part of the castle from being destroyed. Her belly full and satisfied Luna gently motioned for the nameless colt to follow her towards to door. Letting her mane resume its star like appearance Luna slipped into the corridor and rested her gaze on the small colt that stood quietly beside her.

“We must talk little one and I believe my private garden will be a good place”.

Luna spoke no more and silently walked down the corridor as she did she listened to the soft and wobbly steps of the nameless colt as he walked beside her, Luna became lost in thought her mind else were and her hooves grew louder as she quickened her walk down the corridor, she though of the small nameless colt that had suddenly come into her life and of how he could change her life for the better, but she also thought of the darkness that was still a part of her and the harm it could bring to one so young, a voice small and weak suddenly broke Luna’s thoughts and she suddenly noticed the absence of the nameless colt from her side.

“Princess Luna....please wait for me”.

Luna turned her head and she cursed herself for not watching the little colt, he was clearly unable to keep up with her stronger more powerful legs and he had fallen behind, his small body trembling as he struggled to breath. Luna quickly hurried over to the trembling colt and he looked up at her his eyes full of tears.

“Please don't leave me alone.....

The little colts words faded as he burst into silent tears, Luna felt her heart grow heavy with guilt, yet again she had caused pain to a pony because of her actions, Luna hung her head in shame and for a moment she felt her guilt overcome her and at the very edge of her mind she felt a dark presence slip past her defenses. Luna feeling this presence pulled herself back from her dark thoughts and her defences pushed the presence back into the void of her mind. Luna focused on the crying colt before her she gently nuzzled his head and kissed him softly below his small stubby horn.

“Hush now little one the fault is mine not yours, rest upon my back for now and we shall talk once we reach the garden”.

Luna gently levitated the nameless colt onto her back were he slowly began to relax, Luna’s very presence acting as a soothing balm to his shivering body. As Luna softly walked down the corridor the nameless colt lay motionless up her back, he listened to the soft sound of Luna’s hooves and the even softer sound of her breathing and as the minutes passed he began to slowly close his eyes and with sleep came the dream. The dream was weak and revealed itself as brief flashes that appeared blurry and out of place. There was a large park covered with green grass many colts and filly's played there but the stood on two legs not four. The dream shifted and in its place was the smiling face of a mare she stood on two legs much like the colts and filly’s, for a brief moment the nameless colt was vaguely aware of his body within the dream and he new it was not the same body he now possessed. The dream faded once again this time to be replaced with the sound of fear and panic as people ran through the streets the builds around them burning and from the skies came a great plague it swept across the dream scape smothering everything in darkness, the only sound was a cruel laugh which echoed through the darkness.

The nameless colt was suddenly ripped from the dream his screams echoed across the royal garden to be heard only by Luna as she held him close to her side a warm wing wrapped snuggled around his shivering body. Hot tears wet his cheeks but the nameless colt could not recall the images from his dream only a sense of terror and grief filled his mind. Luna gently pressed the nameless colt closer to her warm side and gently massaged the colts trembling body with her wing.

“Shh its all right little one you are safe nothing is going to Hurt you”.

Luna continued to gentle sooth the upset colt her mind full of questions, she had caught brief glimpses of his dream and she was sure that what she had witnessed was not a dream but a memory one that was so terrible that the little colts mind had suppressed it. Time and patience were clearly needed and Luna new she would have to do her very best to guide the nameless colt, but for now there were more pressing matters to attend to. Luna gently released the nameless colt from the comforting grip of her wing and she silently stood her larger more powerful body once again towering over the cots small body.

“Dry your tears little one and look upon my garden”.

The nameless colt pulled his from underneath his small wing and his eyes went wide with wonder at the sight before him. Luna's garden stretched out before the cots eyes it was full of strange trees and plants that were the color of the night. There were trees that were large and ancient there thick trucks and branches were covered with a black bark that glittered with miniature stars and there leaves were a dark blue much like Luna s coat. The many flowers that filled the garden were also much like the night sky, large black roses covered with light blue thorns, the grass was a mix of light and dark blues and was soft and cool to the touch. As the nameless colt’s eyes took in the sight before him Luna smiled with happiness to see that there was another who appreciated her garden for its beauty.

“What is that”.

The colts voice all though small caught Luna’s attention and she followed his gaze to see he was studying one of her moon flowers, it was much like a sun flower but its petals were silver and had a slight glow to them and its center looked much like a small galaxy that was slowly swirling with the passage of time.

“There called moon flowers there one of my own you like them”.

Luna paused waiting for the little cot to answer and for a while he said nothing and just studied the moon flowers eventually his small quiet voice reached Luna’s ears and his answer filled her with happiness.

“There beautiful princes Luna....everything in your garden is beautiful”.

Luna lowered her head to the nameless colts level and placed a kiss of thanks upon his head before motioning for him to follow her. Luna walked through the garden her sense’s tingled with the effects of the gardens deep and ancient magic and all around her she felt the silent movements of the gardens many animals as they hide from view unsure of the the nameless colts strange presence. Finally Luna stopped at the base an ancient tree its many branches weighed to the ground giving the tree a hunched over appearance, as Luna stepped underneath the trees leafy branches she felt the faint presence of her sister followed by an echo of sadness. Luna felt tears in her eyes as her sisters sadness echoed around her but she forced such emotions away not wanting to be distracted while she started the colts control lessons. Luna settled herself beneath the tree and raised a wing moments later she felt the nameless colt snuggle up to her side and she slipped her wing over him leaving only his head exposed.

“Little one I must talk with you it is of great importance that you listen to everything I have to say”.

The nameless colt watched Luna silently and nodded his head softly, his eyes never left hers and as her words filled his ears the little colt’s eyes went wide with fear.

“You may not remember but when you first arrived so suddenly into the lands of Equestria you were unable to control the magic the dwells deep within you. As a result you were almost consumed by it and the result would have been the complete destruction of the castle and the city that surrounds it”.

Luna paused and gentle nuzzled the nameless colts cheek soothing away his fears, she pulled away from him and smiled softly at him and slowly the fear in his eyes lessened and his breathing slowed to a more gentle pace. Once satisfied that the little colt was no longer in danger of having a panic attack Luna continued her explanation.

“It was only through me that you survived little one, I was able to absorb a great deal of your raw magic and add it my own unfortunate the remaining portion of your magic still was still to much for you to handle and the result was the destruction of the castle throne room”.

Luna smiled softly as the little colts ears flatted against his head and guilt filled his face, once again Luna felt a flicker of worry for the young one for yet again it was clear he had a basic knowledge of what she spoke of a thing that was impossible for a creature born of magic only a few hours ago. Luna gently lifted the little colts head with a hoof until he was once again face to face with her.

“Do not worry about the throne room little one it can be rebuilt in time. For the moment we must tackle the issue of your magic and your ability to control it”.

Luna took a slow and steady breath and prepared herself for what she had to do, she had never taught anypony unlike her elder sister who had many students so Luna decided the best way to teach the nameless colt was to teach him as she had been taught. Luna quickly dipped her horn and let it connect with the smaller horn of the nameless colt, she let her magic and mind flow inwards and she took the nameless colt with her deep into the depths of her very soul.
