Somewhere in Texas.


Feels like just yesterday I can hear the calm & loud chat around me. Busy news, cops chasing criminals, couples planning to take the next level, kids going to school, workers taking breaks, driving to restaurants, met family members, sports people in match ups, yeah the usual stuff.

Yet now, I cannot hear them no more. Just only dust and echoes.

Ever since this so called 'Equestria' country have made contact on our world, things haven't been the same for these past few years. Mankind has been put on defense and call to action when the Alicorn ruler, Queen Celestia, made a 'conversion bureau' to help humanity be cured and turned to ponies from all the chaos and everything that were consuming us. Does this ruler ever seen the whole history of human kind? Because the way I see, she's just another tyrant behind her innocent face grinning with insane madness to see an entire species wipe out from existence.

A year ago, barriers have suddenly popped into multiple places and are slowly consuming every state and country, one by one. Starting in New York, California, Mexico, Rio, France, Sydney, Germany, Vietnam, and a few others.

Then the next thing, there was some bombardment of magic hitting in my hometown and everyone flee for their life. Everything has been consumed all over the places, even my own neighborhood and the schools I went to.

Me however, I miraculously survived the impact of the strange magic. Either I was somehow protected by someone or if there's something else going on. So I didn't think on it too much and wait for the coast is clear before find some shelter away from the Equestrian forces.

Since then, my whole life has changed. The worse news however, not only have the humans been forced to turn into ponies by the magic potions, but also there have been reports of humans mysteriously missing. Not by the ponies or their own, but from something else.

About 5 months ago, while I was hiding from the pursuits of flying pony patrols, I found something near small lake river. Carefully of not getting spotted, I stealth my way over to the object and moved a couple of rocks over to reveal an unusual grey gauntlet. When I slowly touched and picked up gauntlet with my hands, my body, eyes, and brain felt hazy for about several minutes before I felt myself ready to puke. After having to throw up and wash my mouth with water, I calm myself down and glance over to the gauntlet. For some reason, my hazy vision was telling me about how it can change the tide of war and perhaps save humanity from both the invaders and those messed up armies of machines.

The next thing, I felt some rumbling on the ground. I look over the river to see multiple unknown figures heading right toward my location. Fearing that it might be the ruler's forces, I quickly picked up the gauntlet again and hightail it out of here.

I glanced to my left shoulder to see those pursuers didn't look like ponies, but actually some form of unusual predator hunters I never seen before. Perhaps it could be those things the vision showed me.

Suddenly, I felt a massive pain when one of those monsters scratched my back with their sharp claws and another one punches my injured. I flew away from the punch and toward a long fall of a large pond and I hold onto the gauntlet tightly to brace myself of an impact.

I gasp when I came up to the surface of water and slowly swim across to the shore. Making it safely, I glance up the tall hills to see no hunters pursuing me. Sighing in relief, I got up and limply walk away to find any good shelter to rest in.

Thankfully, I spotted a hidden military hideout with humans working there. Someone spotted me and run up to me before I collapse from the pain on my back and injured right leg. I was then transported to the hidden base and got treated of my injuries for a few weeks.

Since then, I'm all healed up and made a few friends, but yet my mind still can't get over the strange images I had in my dream. It was the ones involving those machine hunters against dozens of figures with their weird gauntlets the same as the one I found.

I asked one of my friends named Thompson, the medic who carried me to the hidden base, on what's been happening and are we winning or not. Thompson just shook his head to me and told me some very bad news.

Turns out. . . more than 50% around the world is consumed by the barriers and most of the governments are losing their foothold grounds and some humans being already turned from the potions by the enemies. Not only that, but the ruler's six loyal element bearers; Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity Belle, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie are leading the attack all over the United States. He says that if we don't do something soon to act quick, then all of the states will be gone and the other countries will be next.

Sighing in frustration, I think back on the gauntlet, ponder on if this thing can perhaps help us or turned against us. So later, I told my friends to meet up with me inside the command room.

From there on, I showed my friends, officer ranks, and scientists the gauntlet glove to explain myself of how I escaped the pursuers and all the way up to finding their hidden base. At first they didn't actually believe me, but one of the scientists named Dr. Winston believed me and examine the glove.

He also pulled out a booklet about ancient artifacts to turn some pages over until he stopped at the page of a similar picture of the gauntlet. Winston says that he and a friend of his also found a similar, but different gauntlet during their research investigation of missing people. He told everyone that once these gauntlets are put on, the special gem on top of the wrist activates and transforms the users as the reapers of abyssal chaos, Witchblades.

Witchblades, I wonder if they are the ones who battle those machines in my vision dreams? If they are, then I can find the secret origins of the gauntlet I have now and form a combat team since I can't actually face all the enemies alone, including those six bearers and the hunter I encountered.

I asked Dr. Winston on where exactly did he and his friend find the gauntlet.

He told me the last known location he found it; Tokyo, Japan.

. . . . . I guess this'll be a long week to get there.

Utopian Harmony Empire.

Canterlot Headbit Base.

Inside the medical station, a anthro pony captain named Shining Armor and two of his guards enters the station. The captain didn't look happy when he saw multiple civilians & soldiers were all waiting to get checked up on their bruised bodies and missing limbs, even a few soldiers have died from losing too much blood.

Sighing, he turns his head to see a cadet messenger saluting to him.

"Report, how's the conversion progress in the human world?"

"I'm not sure captain, we've gotten reports of taking more human lands a few days ago and succeeded. However, two of our squads were ambushed by something else that's not human nor pony. Only four ponies were still alive and wounded, the others are confirmed to be all dead. The one responsible for this is still out there."

Gritting his teeth in anger at this report, Shining slammed his fist into a wall. Making the cadet and his guards flinch at his unexpected reaction. Calming down, he looks at his messenger.

"Dammit, it's the ninth squad we lost so far. I better go report this later to my majesty, she won't be very happy. For now though, lead me to the surviving team cadet. I need to speak with them."

"Yes sir!"

While the Shining is pondering over on what to do next, something else is going on outside the base. In the Canterlot Garden, a stone Draconequus statue named Discord is quietly laughing from feeling and hearing the distortion of both harmony and chaos going out of control.

"Oh little Sunbutt, how the mighty have fallen. Once a beautiful pony who endured countless years of suffering, now became something far worse than Equestria's past time of villains."

Discord uses both of his eagle and lion hands to slowing get them ready.

"You forgot a few fatal mistakes of your devious plan. You may have used your element pawns to seal me a second time for good, but I have a fail-safe plan. In case something were to happen with Equestria and other countries around the world. Since Harmony's knights turned dark, then why not Chaos's knights turn to light as well?"

With a snap of both fingers, his whole statue body begins to fall apart.

"Enjoy your "PEACEFUL HARMONY" times Tia cause it'll be the last you'll ever see it again."

Discord made one last maniacal laugh before his whole statue body collapses to the ground.

Ruins of New York City.

Utopian Harmony territory.

35 hours earlier. . .

On a rainy night at 8 p.m., three U.S.A. marine soldiers are nesting in the 15th floor of a bank building. They were stationed there by one of the commanders in order to find out how many pony soldiers there are, look for any survivors not converted yet, and collecting Intel on finding a way to push back the barriers.

The first one is Wilson, Sargent leader of his squad called Molar.

Second is Piers, a scout sniper to detect enemies at long distances.

Last one is Aurora, a medic officer to tend the wounded, whether they be ally or enemy.

Both Wilson and Aurora are checking on their gears while Piers is at prone position near a broken window with his silencer sniper rifle out. He looks in the sniper scope to see no signs of survivors or enemies, until he spots multiple figures of pony soldiers.

"Sarg, I got eyes on four enemy patrols sighted at 12 o'clock on the streets, several miles away."

Hearing this, Wilson and Aurora take out their binoculars to see the enemy. All three of them spot each of the patrols splitting up different directions.

"Looks like both the patrols are splitting up, probably looking for any survivors in the city." Wilson said, watching the patrols carefully.

"You think any of them know of our location?" Aurora asked him.

"I highly doubt that Aurora."

Then suddenly, Piers looks to the left and spot a survivor surrounded by those ponies.

"Sarg, Aurora, I found a survivor at 9 o'clock near the collapse college ground. He's surrounded by those pony guards. Although for some reason, the kid's not running away, screaming, or calling for help."

They see one of the soldiers walk up to the survivor with a conversion potion.

"It's your call Sarg."

"Hold your fire Piers, we don't want to give away our location. Let's just wait and see if the other team can rescue him first before they convert him into a newfoal. Although, I just can't shake the feeling that something's very wrong."

The soldier stops in front of the survivor and opens up the bottle. Before going to pour the whole thing out, the survivor suddenly jumps at the soldier and begins to bite viciously at the neck. Both the humans and ponies were shocked of this sudden attack as the pony shook their heads and attack the human. The kid turns his head at the soldiers and jumps away. The ponies tried to attack at all sides with their weapons and magic, but surprising the kid dodges each of them as it tears apart and kills each of the soldiers, one-by-one.

The other patrol spots their comrades in danger and chargers at the enemy. Tearing the head off of a pony, the monstrous kid turns it head at the patrol and roars at them before killing off more ponies. Including breaking a unicorn's horn and tearing off both a pegasi's wings. Before going to finish off the remaining patrol member, a blast from behind hits the kid's back.

Turning around and roaring at someone close by, the murderous kid jumps high on a building and jumps again to move far away from the enemies as the other figure chases after it.

Back at the bank building, the Molar team were stunned in shock to see of what happened tonight.

"Wilson, what do we do now?" Aurora says, covering her mouth to not vomit.

Shaking his head, Wilson turns around and grabs his gear.

"Change of plans, we better go inform Headquarters and all four teams on what we just saw here."

Elsewhere, present time. . .

Outside of a closed school, a grown mare pegasi is walking while wheeling a human girl who isn't able to walk for a while. Both became good friends when they first found each other somewhere at a beach.

The human and pegasi look in the sky to see dark clouds largely forming in.

"S-Scootaloo, I'm scared." The girl says in a scared tone.

The girl's body relaxed when she felt two hands rubbing her shoulders.

"It's okay, I promise to protect you no matter what." Scootaloo whispers softly to her friend.

Scootaloo looks closer to see the barrier still engulfing each human lands as she glares at it.

'Damn you to the deepest depths of Tartarus, Celestia." Her mind said in a cold dark tone.
