Everypony knows of Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Friendship and previous star student of Princess Celestia. But do many know that Celestia has taken many students in her years of being a ruler? Before Twilight Sparkle, before Sunset Shimmer, there was a stallion called Moonstone. A devoted student with a drive to learn his magical studies and his studies of the cosmos, he could never be without a good book or be far from his telescope and charts. Though when the time came for the final phase of his studies, the final test, he felt unprepared and departed to study in solitude.

For years he never wrote or spoke a word to Celestia, but finally he has returned, feeling ready for his test. However, he soon discovers that not only has his final test opportunity passed him by, but that somepony else has completed it. The newest princess and his third replacement. Twilight Sparkle. Having nothing else, he concedes to studying the stars in the Canterlot Castle Observatory, his once loved home in the castle. But when Twilight discovers she has a senior in magical studies who might even know more than her, she jumps at the opportunity to potentially be his friend. Moonstone, will hear nothing of it.

Within the Seventh Universe, there are many extraordinary beings that thrive and preform duties none could imagine. One such being is no exception, though he is greatly feared, and rightly so. It comes natural when your job is to destroy worlds to make way for new ones, this being is known as The God of Destruction, Beerus. His power has no rival and he makes the very cosmos quake with utter fear at his name. The fear mostly stems from the fact that Lord Beerus's temper is something to be avoided. To draw his ire is to usher forth certain death, this was learned the day he did battle with the hero of Earth, Goku. But despite the Earth coming close to destruction, Beerus parted ways with the heroes of Earth as an uneasy friend. And since then, he has decided to slumber for three years.

But there is one thing that even a god can do that mortals are known for, sleepwalking. So one can imagine the mild worry and annoyance when Beerus is discovered missing by his keeper, Whis. But the God is not missing, he merely moved his sleeping area. His current bed? The topmost chamber of an ancient castle on a world full of talking Equines. So how well can a world known for it's magic and wonder, house a god known for his temper and penchant for the destruction of worlds? Who knows....but let's find out.

Upon discovering Spike destroyed it, she spirits the young dragon away. Twilight, with Baen at her side venture forth to save the young dragon.

But the sorceress is merely the calm before the true storm to come. A storm that will creep through Equestria and move to another world to begin it's true sinister purpose. The fate of two worlds now hang in the balance. But the question is, can Baen confront his toughest struggle yet and emerge victorious? Or will he be consumed by his regret and demons of old, and fail?

"I....I think we should see other ponies.... I mean I love you Baen, I really do. But I just don't think I might be the mare for you. You understand right?"
"I...understand....."
After the day when Coco broke up with him, the day the stoic barbarian's heart was broken, Baen became lost and depressed. For many days he wondered without a destination, just trotting and going through the motions. Many of his friends wanted to talk to him about it, but he avoided them. One night, in a stupor, he finds himself in Twilight's castle and the next morning he had vanished. His friends didn't look much into it, thinking he had gone on a vacation. But he did not go to a resort or an island, but to a different world. But his arrival and mannerisms draw the attention of many people, the first being a group of girls who not only seek to befriend the barbarian, but to help him see things aren't so bad. And the other being three girls who wish to nab him for their own nefarious purposes and the purposes of another. But all is not dark, for out of these girls, a miss Sunset Shimmer feels a connection with the wayward warrior, and perhaps something more. But can one of the strongest magic's bloom when a threat looms on the horizon?
