(Starring Shining Armor and Princess Cadance)
During the night of the crescent moon, a single carriage left the gates of Canterlot, largest city and capital of the Kingdom of Equestria. Now, normally this would not be such a strange occurrence as many carriages seem to enter and exit the metropolis at will. However, this very carriage had something, or rather someponies, which were of great importance on that particular night. A while ago, the entire city was witness to one of the most important dates of the year; more important than perhaps Winter Wrap-Up or Hearth's Warming: the wedding of Captain Shining Armor and Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, (or Cadance, as she liked to be called). However, it had also been a day of crisis as hordes of demonic changelings from the deepest part of Tartarus laid siege to Canterlot. Their queen, Chrysalis, had trapped Cadence under the Royal Palace and assumed her form, deceiving Shining Armor and the entire populace. With the stal

The loud clicking sound of your heels on the hard floors of the hallway echoed through the building. Signs written in kanji were plastered on doors and walls, indicating numbers, upcoming events, and the occasional typical cheesy slogan that seemed to be ever present at any school, no matter the country. It seemed a mystery why they bothered with such things. It wasn't as if the positive and persuasive words had any affect on the real trouble makers of the bunch.
Your eyes scanned the room numbers, looking for the one you were supposed to arrive at, 112. Placing the numbers to fit the foreign script was no problem for your brain to handle.

Prologue: Strange Awakening
Twilight Sparkle stirred in her slumber, her nightmares already starting to fade away as she neared consciousness. In time she opened her eyes and sat up with a yawn. She groggily rubbed the sleep from her eyes with the backs of her forefeet.
An unfamiliar bubbly voice called out from another room, "Rise and shine, buddy! You're the first one up, aside from me, of course. I'll bet you're really hungry and stuff; want some breakfast?"
Twilight was wide awake now. Who the hay was that? She surveyed her surroundings: cupboards filled with antique dishware lined the walls of the room. Warm late-morning sun filtered in through the windows, dappled by the trees outside. To her left were her friends Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie, each sleeping on the floor with a pillow and a blanket like the ones she had. To her right laid

A few selective and well-avoided streets of Downtown Townsville were the places to be if you were one of the many low-life deadbeats and/or criminals that couldnt have cared any less about the alien invasion. It was one of the rare places that had yet to be touched by the plague; a just cause for the apathy.
Even so, the area was as decrepit and rank as if already invaded. The cold grey buildings were full of broken windows and questionable residents, their walls labeled with countless gang tags. The smell of rusted metal mixed with the latest atmospheric stink, and a police siren could be heard from any corner, any time.
But life had always been like this anyways. So there was little change of behavior in these parts, and life went on as usual. The same bar tucked into the lit alleyway was jumping and pumping with punk rock music, played by the same notoriously famous crew of hoodlums that ruled these streets.

That’s what Jordan was.
Haunted by a woman with a dragon. He saw flashes of her and the black dragon every dang time he closed his eyes. She and her dragon pervaded his thoughts like a plague throughout the land; there was no escape from the images that he saw.
But, unlike a plague, it wasn’t entirely unwelcome.
My shadow is my only constant companion,
Though I’ve had others~
The flashes were the complete opposite of illness, actually. Simply the image of the woman and her dragon was all it took to eat away all his stress, anger and rage. It left his mind in a state of lucidity he couldn’t achieve otherwise.
Which was a bit strange, considering he’d never actually met her and had no idea who she was.
So, it was a good plague. Ish.

The man known to have lead away far,
All creatures that did people harm,
Like the mole, the toad, the newt and viper,
The man that became known as the Pied Piper.
Is he in Tartary, freeing it's Cham
From another plague of gnats?
Or is he in Nizam,
Playing to blood-sucking bats?
A man so great in good and heart,
Until he came to Hamelin,
To set their rat troubles right,
And became but a villain.
Where is the good? Burned away in orange flames?
Pray not so.
Pray for the good man.
And play for the lost Piper.
