A constant cold breeze flowed through the sleeping land of what would be known later as ‘Equestria’, a kingdom of prosperity and, for the most part, harmony. At the moment it was barely beginning; forests spread out as far as the eye could see, into the mountains, and before them, there were mostly empty plains or just little villages surrounding a modest palace. The villagers’ fields, though scattered outside of their village, were not vast, and promised only what was necessary to sustain them; the population and the place that they inhabited had yet to grow into a kingdom. Even so, the land and its pony inhabitants were already doing a wonderful job in its growth, guided always by their loving, faithful princesses.
The Everfree Forest, old as ever, was soon visited by the sudden appearance of a creature that was neither a pony, nor any other that had been seen yet. Before the creature landed inside the forest, it descended from a faraway plac

A few hours had passed since the puzzling encounter between Princess Luna and the unknown creature. Even after the late setting of the moon, the sun steadily made its way up to the sky. The light from dawn was faint, but it steadily grew stronger. The color of the sky turned lighter while the birds began to chirp and sing little by little. The nocturnal creatures had gone to sleep quickly, giving place to the animals of the day to wake up and search for food of the early day.
The window of the high tower of the palace opened after magic unlocked them and pushed them aside. An alicorn princess stepped out to the balcony to watch the beginning of dawn. She was different from Princess Luna in that she was considerably taller, slightly more slender, and with different colors. She seemed to have grown out of fillyhood recently, budding into a beautiful young mare. Her wings were longer, her body more developed. However, she still held grace and elegance in every stance

Miseria laughed once she encountered the blue pegasus that ran around the labyrinth at top speed. She had already been entertaining herself by making Rainbow Dash’s life impossible with plenty of her creations. Tormenting her and ruining her progress had proved to be quite entertaining in the last few minutes.
Rainbow Dash struggled to get out of a massive ball of sticky gum that Miseria had summoned on top of her. “Just... you wait...” She grunted a bit more and managed to finally pull herself out. “You’re not gonna bring me down so easily, you better know that!”
Miseria rolled her eyes. “I hate it when they all say that. I mean, it’s so stupid and useless…”
“Don’t get so full of yourself! It’s far from over! Just ‘cause I can’t fly doesn’t mean I can’t kick your ugly flank! I’ll really make you pay for all you’ve don

It was almost afternoon by the time Celestia returned to the palace to get a break. Despite all her investigations, she couldn’t come to a conclusion that explained everything.
She sat on her throne and let out a fatigued sigh. “I’m not going to let this go, there has to be an explanation for this! A good explanation... A good reason for it to be happening.”
Her eyes turned sad as she glanced down. Just when everything was going so well...
Discord and Fluttershy had brightened her morning when they showed up for breakfast. Their arrival gave her and Discord the chance to talk about things that desperately needed to be discussed. After their conversation, they had finally come to the point of forgiveness. Of giving one another a chance.
It’s... It was what I had wanted for centuries... What I wanted all along... She rubbed her eyes with her hoof. Just when I thought everything was over... All that pain, th

Miseria hummed a bit as she played around with the animals that scurried away from her. She concentrated hard as she tried to transform them and make them do bizarre stuff. However, much to her frustration, the out-of-place magic and madness was too much for them to take, and they always either lost their minds permanently or even collapsed, unable to do much further.
Even inanimate things that she attempted to mess with were destroyed every time she tapped her hoof with a new, creative spell.
“Ooh, no, that’s not right!” She looked at a bunch of insane rabbits with frustration, then raised an eyebrow as she muttered to herself. “Why can’t I get this?! I don’t mean to overdo it!”
She shook her head and continued to mess with the forest in different ways. She quickly got over her frustration and started to laugh at her antics again.
She floated on her back in the air as geysers of frosting burst out of the ground

Two guards finished their scouting rounds once the weather patrol reported to them. They walked to their assigned spot at the gate entrance, but were stopped by a servant that ran over to them.
“Y-you gotta come and see this. M-maybe you can do something...” The pony spoke breathlessly as the guards gave him confused looks.
“What’s the problem?”
They were interrupted when they heard a dog barking in the distance.
“...A dog got in the palace?”
“Great, just what we need...”
“Yes. I-I mean, no!” The servant shook his head. “It’s not really like that...”
“We don’t have time for that. We have to tend to the royals. Get somepony--”
“Th-that’s just it! It’s no dog! Please just come and see for yourselves!”
The guards unwillingly followed the servant pony until they reached one of the gardens.
To their surprise, they found Prince Modest diggin

It had been a hectic time over Ponyville ever since Discord was ‘willingly’ released from his spell by the Mane Six, under Celestia's orders, in order to be reformed by none other than Fluttershy.
During this time, Discord tried to manipulate Fluttershy like a fool. He bullied her pet, ate contents of books from Twilight’s library home, spun Fluttershy’s cottage off the ground, made everyone (yes, everyone. Including Fluttershy’s own pet rabbit, whatever the annoying furball was called--yes, Angel) question Fluttershy's capability to follow the princess' orders, tried to turn Fluttershy against her own friends, and eventually made beavers flood Sweet Apple Acres, which he later later froze in a showdown against the Mane Six, particularly against Fluttershy.
Eventually, though, Fluttershy and her never-failing display of kindness and friendship to Discord got the better of the Master of Chaos. After returning everything that he had altered

Miseria continued to bounce on Discord’s body as she talked excitedly about the possible events for the day. “What are we going to play today? It’s not often that you come see me in the middle of the day, is it? I feel really special, brother, we should do something exciting!”
She jumped up and spun in the air so the sunlight would cover her white coat. “Ohhh! Look how pretty I am with the sun! Oh, isn’t it just lovely? Bet I’m the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen~”
Discord rolled his eyes and grimaced as she tried to call his attention towards her. Oh, she doesn’t let up...
She landed on him again and patted his back. “What are we gonna do, then? Wanna show me how to transform animals this time? I wanna make them change colors, too!”
“Miseria, that’s enough...”
“Ooh, and you gotta tell me how to break up my body! And... Oh, then you must teac

Canterlot continued to suffer through bizarre destruction and dangerous disorder. No part of the city was safe, and everypony nearly went mad from the fearful running and screaming. Just when somepony thought a place was safe, it turned into a potentially hazardous threat that the Royal Guard could barely suppress.
Modest stood his ground in the middle of the city. He lowered his head and cast another protective spell. He grunted when the spell nearly backfired. “Barely managed...”
Luna flew closer to him. “Are you alright?”
“Yes. That’s the fifth spell we’ve had to cast so far. But they’re getting weaker... Soon enough it’ll be all up to the Elements of Harmony. We won’t be able to stand against this level of magic much longer.”
Luna smiled and raised her front hooves in the air while she cast another spell. “Oh, don’t say such things. Of course we will. I believe we have handled worse. We&

As the morning rose, Discord woke up earlier than Miseria. He glanced at her before he stared at her failed creations with another odd look and a raised eyebrow.
He chuckled and shook his head as he snapped his fingers and disappeared the wrongdoings.
After he stood up and stretched himself, Discord gave Miseria’s sleeping form a tender smile. He kissed her cheek and appeared a blanket over her. "I’ll see you tonight, my dear." He petted her head when she snuggled into the blanket, then snapped his fingers and teleported away.
Prince Modest woke up in a daze, looking around his room. “What...”
A nurse walked into the room, followed by a maid. “Ah, you’re awake, Your Highness.”
“What happened...?” Modest blinked and touched the bandage wrapped around his head.
“Please don’t move too much. The guards said you took quite a blow to the head last night, or something like that. Do you think you could exp

Luna looked up at the night sky as she finished organizing the stars. Her horn glowed as she made some of the dots on the sky sparkle with a brighter glow, in order to give the sky more beauty.
“That should be good... Oh.” She looked aside as she came upon the crooked constellations that Discord had made many centuries ago. I can’t believe it. They’re... They’re still here...?
Her eyes teared up slightly as she remembered the complaints that she had made to her sister while ‘Wilder’ snickered and enjoyed her frustration. He never did put all of her stars in the right order, and had bewitched some of them to stay forever in that humorous way that he had put them.
After all this time... She smiled a little as she watched Discord’s stars with a nostalgic look. She could not make herself clean up the disorder with some of her perfect constellations.
Modest walked up behind her as he started at the stars

Applejack walked through the irregular, dark maze with full determination. She tried her best to ignore the sounds and shadows that crept all around her. Whenever they almost got the best of her, she took a deep breath and reminded herself of their goal and mission.
She looked around to make sure there was no danger lurking around the corners of the hedges. “At least there aren’t any apples ‘round here to trick me this time.” She shook her head and continued her walk, a bit quickly as she ignored the taunting leaves around her.
Miseria’s voice could be heard laughing again. She actually made Applejack jump with start and stand wary. “You wanna know why there aren’t any apple trees here, Applejack?”
The Honesty pony looked around as Miseria continued to giggle. She did not trust her surroundings in the slightest, and only tried to get away as soon as possible. “Sour appl

Night arrived into Equestria and covered Canterlot in the beautiful, starry environment to add natural enhancement to the event. With the perfect night started the regal festivities of the prestigious and greatly attended Grand Galloping Gala.
Discord stood beneath the moonlight as he admired the sky. He was desperately tempted to cast a few spells, if only to calm himself down, but instead he looked at his feet and sighed. He felt very confused about everything that went on around him, everything that had happened in the last couple of days
It felt very odd and uncomfortable to have those heavy thoughts, it felt wrong. He usually wasn’t like that. But... After one thousand years, Discord had forgotten what was the balance between Chaos and Fun.
It had been nearly impossible to get him out of under Fluttershy’s cottage, he recalled with embarrassment. The colossal attempt had required Fluttershy’s ever-so-constant coaxing, Pinkie Pie

The uneven path had begun to make her hooves quite sore. However, that was no excuse for stopping, especially with all the dangers that roamed about the shady, tricky labyrinth. There was hardly any sound around her, except for those of the plants and animals that tried to startle and trick her from her way.
It seemed at times that the land around her stretched forever, over lakes, forests, towns, even mountains, at some point. Then it all vanished to a narrow speck of dirt road that she had no other option but to follow. There was no way back, it all was swallowed by darkness that she just could not light up.
She tried to convince herself that they were illusions, that she couldn’t get distracted, but it was as though said illusions had a mind of their own. They got more real with every step she took. Even her senses were becoming weary of the realistic cold wind that struck against her to slow her down.

Discord crawled on all fours through a familiar clearing in the Everfree Forest. He reached the spot where the Dark One had abandoned him many, many years ago. It was from there that Discord took interest in the unknown world of ponies, and began his chaotic antics that led him to meeting the princesses.
He lowered his head and shut his eyes closed. “All that worrying... It was for absolutely nothing...” He grimaced and grumbled with himself as he sat alone.
He sighed and shook his head, feeling very angry with himself. He looked at his reflection in one of the ponds, then scoffed as he remembered Prince Modest’s handsomeness. Not even a contest at the mere idea. “How stupid. How definitely very stupid.”
After that, he continued to venture further into the forest without paying any mind to his surroundings. He tried to get the bitter thoughts out of his head, but it was useless. Nothing interested him enough to keep him from rememb

Miseria’s cheeks tinted with a light blush when he leaned down to whisper in her ear. “What--”
"You know, I think this night was not so bad after all.”
She gave him a delighted smile and cuddled a bit closer with him. “Oh, I’m so glad!”
“Heh, heh. Are you, now?”
“Of course! I want it to be the best it can be, brother. I’ve been waiting for a long time to meet you, so I want to make sure that you’re comfortable. It makes me so happy to know that you like it!”
Discord chuckled again as he patted her head. “Makes me happy too, to have such an understanding little one to talk to.”
“Right? Oh, am I glad you get it!” She jumped into the air and danced around, no longer hiding any of her features. “Do you like how I dance, brother?”

Rarity’s path was dark as can be. Even the light from her horn was barely enough for her to see over obstacles on the ground and in front of her. Regardless of the poor vision, she walked frantically, for she wished to get as far away from the place as she could.
“Keep it together, Rarity. Keep yourself together! Just… Hurry up and find the others. The moment we find the princesses, it’ll be over! Oh, I’ll be able to go back home, to a warm, relaxing bath, maybe a refreshing facial, a pony-pedi, a massage, and then to cuddle with Opal! That will be divine… B-but first I have to be smart and get out of here.”
She walked further while encouraging herself and staying out of the plants’ reach. “I shan’t allow myself to fall prey to this evil and morbid labyrinth! Not again, not ever!” She touched her forehead dramatically, then walked faster. “That’s r

The Night Princess rested through the morning while Celestia devotedly completed her daytime obligations. The time spent with her new friend did not seem to delay the Sun Princess too much. But even if Celestia had needed any help from her younger sister, Luna was just too tired to assist her. She was nocturnal and as such, more often than not, left the day entirely under the responsibility of her older sister while she peacefully slept to be ready for nighttime.
However, she did not expect the afternoon to be disrupted by such commotion. The maintenance ponies sounded busier than ever. They carried themselves in an unusually agitated manner. She wondered why; after all, the maintenance of the palace was not so difficult to keep. The gardens were tended to every day, and the inside of the palace was routinely kept clean by many servants. Why was there such a commotion?
Luna sighed and nestled into one of her big pillows. She was too tired to try to figure

Celestia braced herself again when thunder roared and lightning flew across the sky. She took a deep breath and looked at the chaotic pair carefully.
His good feelings are still in there... She watched him laugh as Miseria jumped on him and started to create her own chaotic spells. He’s somewhere in there.
“Discord, get a hold of yourself!” Celestia grunted with frustration when her legs gave up on her, and she fell on the floor. She looked at herself once she ended up splattered with mud. “...”
Miseria burst out laughing. “Getting a facial, princess? Oh, it’s going to take more than that to fix yourself up a bit, isn’t it?” She held her stomach with her hooves and kept laughing.
Celestia shook some of the mud off, then let out a weary sigh. She looked up at Discord as he left Miseria to approach her. She could feel the mocking sneer coming, but paid him no mind as he floated

Discord and the Mane Six continued to walk through the Everfree Forest, despite the increasing obstacles and dangers. They prepared themselves to confront Miseria and recover the princesses before it was too late for all of them. Unfortunately, their fierce determination did little to decrease the difficulty of the interfering forest that held them back with all its might.
Applejack grunted and pulled her tail free from long, thorny branches. “We better get a move on, y’all. Ah’m getting a funny feeling ‘bout this one part here, and it’s not because of Pinkie’s antics.”
Pinkie Pie looked around while she walked forward, past Discord. “I’d do what I taught you and laugh at these mean things, but...” She gasped and jumped back when a seemingly harmless flowed hissed and snapped at her. “Yikes! They really don’t look like things to be laughed at!”

The seconds seemed to pass in a slow, torturing way that should be deemed illegal to existence. Everything in the dark forest stopped around the Sun Princess, so that she was no longer aware of the spells that wore her down, the animals that slithered around her, the macabre plants and surroundings... She had almost forgotten that she was standing in the middle of the worldwide feared Everfree Forest. It nearly seemed harmless to her now in comparison to what laid before her.
It was all... Everything I did... All the time I waited, Modest’s spell, that barrier... It just led me to this. This was... my reward... My reward for everything that I went through...
At that very moment Celestia, Princess of the Sun, ruler of the great kingdom of Equestria, felt like the most useless of ponies that existed in all of time. None of her magic would ever be sufficiently powerful to undo what she had seen, or the pain that had been brought to her heart.

Zecora grunted and grumbled a bit as she made her way through the Everfree Forest. It had become more difficult than usual to navigate through the woods that were her normally quiet, solitary home, ever since a couple of nights.
For some reason, plants grew without stop everywhere, and just when Zecora thought she had them controlled, they went and did crazy antics before withering away, but not for long. As soon as plants and bizarre appearances in the land vanished, newer, more annoying ones went and replaced them.
Currently, she had to tread carefully over ground that continued to change in texture. A few seconds ago it had been soggy and swamp-like, before it turned back to its solid composition. Then the animals began to protest and let out annoyed reactions that nearly put her in danger.
She quickly pulled back as a snake hissed angrily at her. She sighed and gave it a sympathetic look. “I agree, my friend; I too long for a break.” She

Discord woke up after an hour of sleep. He yawned and stretched himself as he opened his eyes, then said nothing as he spotted Twilight Sparkle in the room.
...Why is she here? Hmm... Whatever, no matter what she wants or what she says... Fluttershy’s the only one I can more or less trust, I gotta remember that... But really, what does Twilight Sparkle want with... me, most likely? She should be sucking up to Celestia, shouldn't she?
Twilight sighed as she nearly finished the overly romantic novel.
Discord gave the unicorn a dull look as she continued to read without acknowledging his existence. Talk about an egghead. He stretched again, then stood up on the bed.
His tail accidentally tapped the lamp on the bedside table, making the smallest noise when it nudged it back a few centimeters.

Discord had managed to delay his ‘Honesty training’ for a few days, until Twilight drew the line and scolded him into shape. He would not get off the hook with her, not after she had worked so hard to plan things carefully for the future of the draconequus and Princess Celestia.
“We’re going with Applejack and that’s final, Discord!” Twilight spoke with a firm voice as she walked out of the Canterlot Castle. She had a determined frown on her face that Discord just would not be able to talk off.
Discord let out a long sigh and fell on the air to float on his back. Perhaps throwing a tantrum will--
“Let’s get moving now. We don’t have all day. I want to get this over with as soon as possible. No more delays, you hear? I’m going to help you, but I won’t be at your beck and call.”
