A New Dawn Chapter 10
The four Wonderbolts quickly set about rallying the rest of the fighting squadron, and with all 28 of the Wonderbolts in tow they headed towards the origin of the booms. As they flew in formation, Rainbow Dash saw Soarin' speaking with Spitfire. Whatever it was he was saying she was disagreeing with, but he seemed pretty set on convincing her. This became clear when the Captain brought the company to a halt mid-air.
"All right listen up," Spitfire spoke out enough for everyone to hear. "Soarin's got an idea and we're gonna run with it, I feel like it's a solid plan so let's hear him out," as she gestured to Soarin' who began to detail his plan.
"Okay, we all know we got our butts kicked last time, so I think we should try and tire this guy out. We're gonna do this by not locking into combat with him, I want everyone to fly in, strike hard and pull out, I don't care if you hit or if he manages to block, as soon as one of us finishes another will fly in. If we use our numbers he'll tire

"Metal!" Sonic yelled to the hovering robot. "Look at this madness! Just what do you think you're doing?!" his fist clenched tightly as his breath hissed through clenched teeth and tossed the backpack that held their supplies aside as Rainbow Dash inched her way away from him, sensing the animosity between the two.
"What was necessary to ensure the safety of this world, these fools would raise arms against he who would deliver this world from the fire," he responded.
"You and Eggman weren't satisfied with Moebius? You had to follow me here to destroy another world? Well that's not gonna happen Metal, I won't let it!"
"Then you will perish with them," he announced as his engines spooled up, prepping to strike at the blue hedgehog.
"Keep talking Metal," Sonic said, widening his stance, gearing himself to leap into battle with his longtime foe. "You're not gonna sound so tough when I snap you in two, you tin foil faker!"
"Faker…" suddenly Metal Sonic's engines wound down. The brigh

Shadow landed in front of Sonic and Rainbow Dash, bringing his hands together and outstretching his palms to crack his knuckles. He then began to massage his right shoulder with his left and as he rotated his right arm in circular motion.
“I’m going high,” Sonic informed the Rainbow Dash.
“Then I’ll hit ‘em low,” she confirmed.
“Oh good, you gotta plan, hope it works out for ya,” Shadow said confidently, before his face twisted into a mischievous grin. “Let’s start this party off with a bang!” he yelled out as he gathered energy in his right hand and hurled a supercharged Chaos Spear at the ground between them. Sonic and Rainbow evacuated their location just as the ground exploded with a fiery blast that sent chunks of rock flying through the air. The two split and went in separate directions, both creating sonic booms in their wake as they left golden and rainbow colored trails behind their respective selves. The

"Huh…wha, what's going on? Where am I Twilight? Twilight? TWILIGHT!!" Spike woke with a start as his memory flooded back to him. The urgency that he woke with caused him to topple off of Big Macintosh's back and land on the forest floor with a loud thud. "TWI-!" He began to shout once more but a hoof wrapped over his mouth tightly silencing him.
"Quiet!" Spitfire said in a quick hushed voice as she scooped him up and lifted him onto her back. "You'll let the whole forest know we're here!"
"What's going on?" Spike whispered back to her. "Where are the others?" he added as he nervously looked around but all he could see was Big Mac following close behind a running Foxtrot. The wolf would every so often drop to the ground and sniff at it vigorously and occasionally altered direction as he went. Luna hovered close above him casting a light

"Sonic we need to hurry the warp gate won't last long!" Tails yelled out as he moved around feverously adjusting dials and instruments. His work shop was buzzing with energy and the noise created by a tear in the fabric of the universe was deafening. A rippling immaterial window leading to another world was suspended between two tesla coils by wild arcs of lighting. "It's now or never!" the two tailed fox struggled to scream out over the racket.
"Okay, Amy you're up first," the blue hedgehog said. "Jump through, and we'll be right behind you okay?"
The pink hedgehog he addressed was a nervous wreck. There was fear radiating from ever part of her. "Sonic, are you sure this will work?"
"Eggman doesn't know that there was one last portal to Fliki Island, not only that but it we needed all 7 chaos emeralds to power it, and it's still super unstable. We're going though, taking the emeralds with us, and destroying the machi

The late Filthy Rich’s study seemed to find itself quickly becoming overcrowded as ponies from near and far began to filter in. Many were business partners but there were a few longtime friends that had been invited, and they all began to fill the room and take up seats behind the front that had reserved seating. Seated front and center before Legal Eagle, her father’s personal lawyer, was Diamond Tiara. To her left sat Gold Digger and on her right was still a vacant seat for the last esteemed guest who Diamond Tiara didn’t know. Cherilee had taken to standing in the back since she technically wasn’t invited and found herself standing next Hang Ten, who had also tagged along but Cherilee thought seemed a little too…stupid, for lack of a better word, to follow what was happening.

Twilight Sparkle was astounded when Princess Celestia showed her the method of travel across Equestria and the eastern ocean to land of the griffons. A magnificent airship suspended high in the sky by an enormous series of balloons. A full complement of her pegasus guards and unicorns trained by Shining Armor were there to provide a royal escort. In addition to the guards, Twilight was informed that Spitfire, Soarin' and Fleet Foot were coming. She wasn't sure why, but was too enamored with the trip and had too many questions for the Princess to care.
"I've never seen this ship before Princess, did you have it commissioned for this trip?"
"No, Twilight, the Sky Chariot has been around quite some time, it hasn't seen use for ages, in fact I believe the last time we used it was when I had to see Lord Graywing regarding Nightmare Moon."
"You see, Twilight it was our responsibility to raise the sun and moon, and when Nightmare Moon kept

"Citizens of Equestria!" Princess Celestia spoke out using her Royal Canterlot voice. "Today marks a magnificent day in our history. For too long have we hidden from the rest of the world, denied her what we Equestrians have to offer. For too long have we been content to never explore beyond our boundaries and view our magnificent world in all her splendor. To this I say, NO MORE!"
The princess stood high above the ponies in a high balcony on Canterlot Castle. The square below filled with ponies from across the land. Citizens from Ponyville, Canterlot and Cloudsdale of course were in attendance, but there were also those that hailed from Apploosa, Dodge City, Los Pegasus, the Crystal Empire, Vanhoover, and even are far as Manehatten and Baltimare. At the rousing words the packed crowds roared and stomped their hooves in praise for their monarchy. At her sides Princess Luna, Princess Cadences and Prince Shining Armor were there. The whole royal court's appearance was

Spitfire sat at her desk with her head buried in her fore hooves as she let out a long frustrated sigh. It was her first real day back on the job since the battle with the Yellow Devil, or Shadow, as she had come to find out his real name. She glanced over at her left only to see a large stack of Wonderbolt posters with her face plastered across them sitting in a tray labeled 'inbox,' an empty tray to her right labeled 'outbox,' and an ink stamp lying in between them. She knew that it was an important part of her job and autographed the posters, especially since, in light of their actions in the war, it generated a good deal of revenue, but her heart just was not into it today. Her mind was pre-occupied with other, more maddening thoughts. With an annoyed groan she set about the task; the sooner she got it done, the sooner she could go for a gallop, or go flying, or…well, anything that didn’t involve her sitting behind a desk.
Spitfire grabbed the first poster. She pressed

"I highly doubt that you and I have anything to talk about, however I'm certain my dear sister would be tickled pink by the idea," Princess Luna said curtly as she dismissed the stained glass apparition and continued to trot to her room, shutting the door behind her and sitting at her vanity mirror where she began to brush her hair. However the visage of Discord would not be ignored so easily. It manifested itself in her mirror mimicking her action by brushing his stag horn. Princess Luna sighed, knowing that unless she put forth great effort in blocking the Lord of Chaos's ability to project himself from his stone statue, she would have to listen to him. "Well out with it then, I don't have the time to deal with your mad ramblings and the sooner you finish the sooner I'll be rid of you."
"My, my, such a temper and I have done nothing to deserve it."
"Well, you see I'm in a bit of bind and I could really use a very special somepony to help."

Rainbow Dash lay on her stomach, her hind legs tucked underneath her and her fore legs crossed in front of her. She and Sonic were in a storage room located on one of the lower decks of the small airship. It was here they had decided to stow the non-functioning Metal and despite his lack of mechanical skill, Sonic had become quite determined to get him operational.
“Sonic, would you relax,” the cyan pegasus said as she was beginning to grow tired of his futile attempts to turn on the robot. “The Princess said something about him repairing himself and that he would wake up when he was done.”
“Metal can auto-repair while he is awake,” Sonic responded, he hoisted the limp robot into the air with grunt and laid him on his back. “C’mon, there has got be like an on switch or something…” he mumbled to himself, before directing his voice back at Rainbow Dash. “Besides, there are some qu

Hooves ground into the dirt, tails flipped back and forth anxiously, the crowds around the starting line cheered as their friends and family members of the inhabitants of the small town of Ponyville took their positions on the starting line. With the Wonderbolt cadets partaking in the race there were considerably more racers than normal but Spitfire accommodated by placing her recruits in formation behind the regular entries, much to the chagrin of Lighting Dust and Fleetfoot.
As the racers all made final stretches and readied themselves, a grey earth pony in a black and white striped shirt with a whistle made his way to side of the of the starting line and addressed everyone.
“Welcome one and all to the Running of the Leaves, I want you all to remember to have fun out there and have a safe race! Now Racers, I’d like to call your attention to Ponyville’s own little supermodel who will signal the start of the race!”

Magenta eyes frantically scanned the water which had grown calm and held a surface a smooth as glass. Fortunately for the rainbow maned pegasus, Lake Murgese was a fresh water lake that was clear enough to almost see through to the bottom. Despite this fact, she struggled feverishly to find her friend beneath the water. As her worry mounted, she flew high into the air and dive bombed for the surface below, taking in a deep breath before plunging beneath the water.
She opened her eyes and took in the blurry view of the clear lake as she swam deeper and deeper for any sign of Sonic. As the subtle sounds of being submerged echoed in her ears, she focused on movement that came from below her. She had seen rising bubbles and immediately began to follow them until she saw a deep hue of blue amongst a bed of seaweed. She beat her wings to propel herself to her target faster and saw a wide-eyed and frightened Sonic struggling violently. His arms and le

“Awww…what’s the matter Princess?”
The fiery embers reflected in Princess Celestia’s eyes as she gazed upon what was once the bustling city of Baltimare. Fires raged around her as explosions rocked the ground beneath her hooves. One uncomfortably close blast shook a nearby high-rise from its foundations and sent it collapsing to the ground. The equine Sun Goddess strode through the devastation alone, having sent the last of her personal guards to ferry the remaining citizens to safety of Canterlot, now looking to deal directly with the nightmare that had been released upon this kingdom with dignity and determination.
“Does it hurt Princess?” the voice of Discord spoke out again as he appeared in a shard large broken glass they was lay in the street in front of her. Celestia furrowed her brow and gazed down at the image of the Draconequus that lay at her hooves. She snorted a breath of hot air through f

Luna was slowly roused from her light slumber by the quick change in momentum, forcing her lurch forward slightly as opposed to being gently rocked by steady travel on board the train. The locomotive hissed loudly as it applied its steam brakes. She turned her attention to glass window her head rested upon and found herself to be looking at the small rustic train station of Ponyville. It varied greatly from Canterlot Station's magnificence, but it was not without its sleepy, small town charm. She stretched her neck and shoulders as she rose from her seat and made her through the train cabin to the doorway, ignoring all of the inquisitive, accusing, and prying stares of the ponies that had ridden with her as she disembarked.
She was greeted by a polite train attendant who had swiftly moved to retrieve her luggage cart from the storage car. The stallion lowered his neck to set the yolk on the ground next to her before wishing her a pleasant afternoon as he made his way to re-board the

The trip back to Cloudsdale was long and quiet, but when Rainbow Dash finally made it back to the arena, Fluttershy was waiting faithfully. The winners had already been announced and they were preparing to begin the uniform distribution ceremony for the new inductees when Rainbow had come back, so Fluttershy did her best to distract her friend from the crowd's roars but ultimately found it futile to raise her spirits.
"I'm not sure what I'm gonna do now," Rainbow Dash said looking out over the arena from a waiting area away from most of the crowd. "I just felt like this was my shot you know? My one shot and I blew it."
"Now, now Rainbow Dash, I'm sure you did your very, very, absolute best and I'm sure that if you keep doing the best that the Wonderbolts will take you in next time."

Rainbow Dash fell rapidly to the ground, her aerodynamics thrown off by her wing awkwardly outstretched in a broken position. As the spiraling ground grew closer and closer, she did everything she could to push the pain out of her mind and use her free good wing to stretch wide to soften the fall. She caught the wind current and by the grace of Celestia there was a steady updraft. She glided drunkenly closer to the ground, still warbling terribly in the air and was no doubt bound to crash, but she felt a wave of relief wash over her once she pulled out of the free-fall.
The victory was short lived as she discovered that she was sailing directly into the forest below her. In moments, she descended below the tree tops, and try as she might with her broken wing she could not regain altitude and collided roughly into a tall evergreen, then fell towards the ground, slamming into branches on the way down. One branch struck her broken wing, causing he

“I am Princess Celestia,” she announced to the being in front of her. “Ruler of all Equestria. These atrocities you have committed in my lands are unforgivable, and you will face justice for these crimes!”
“Oh? What are you gonna do? Beat me up with cupcakes and rainbows?” the monster replied with a grin, casually walking closer. “My name is Shadow, and you haven’t even begun to see the ‘atrocities’ I can commit.”
“You will stop!” Celestia shot back at Shadow’s threat of death and destruction. She knew this would not end without violence, but she knew from the reports that he could absorb her magic. Then an idea crossed her mind and she put her plan into motion. “I am the Goddess of the Sun, the most powerful of Alicorns!

“The charges you face today are of the most gravest nature; treason, as well as consorting and aiding dark forces that conspire to insight chaos and cause calamity,” the aged, yet powerful voice that belonged to Lord Graywing echoed throughout the great council chamber. “As such, the crime levied against you is treason. You stand before us, Princess Luna, to face judgment for your acts of betrayal against your people, your kingdom and against this esteemed royal council. You are to understand the only acceptable forms of punishment that can set even the scales of betrayal are death or banishment. Have you any words to say on your defense of these heinous crimes?”
Princess Luna faced him, facing them all, with a silent defiant anger. She stood tall, proud and unafraid under the eyes of the council that were preparing to sentence her.

Sonic and Rainbow Dash hurtled through space towards the planet seeking desperately to halt this deadly gambit the Doctor had played. It wasn’t long before they had caught up with Metal Sonic, who had a fist buried deep into one of the warheads, yanking out wires and components before leaping away and watching the large rocket erupt in a small explosion into scrap.
“We must hurry,” the robot announced catching sight of the two of them. “If we can get to the missiles before they reach the upper atmosphere, they won’t have reached their terminal Area of Effect. The nuclear payload will be disengaged before it reaches that distance. I calculate we have less than three minutes to stop them before they reach that point. Move with speed and sense of purpose.” After Metal had given them this instruction, he blasted off to the next rocket.

There was a strong wind that blew through the clearing outside the mansion and suddenly Foxtrot felt something strike him in the back, sending him colliding hard against the ground and stopping him dead in tracks. He felt a weight on his back, and before he could rise, something snaked under him and around his neck and pressure, strong and rapidly increasing pressure, was applied on his windpipe. The sudden loss of air gave him a reason to pause and figure out what was happening. It quickly dawned on him that pair of arms held him tightly in a sleeper hold. He spied out of the corner of his eye as he struggled against his capture, the tell-tale white gloves of the stallion’s savior.
“DOWN BOY!” Sonic yelled to him, holding him tightly as he tried to sooth the savage beast. “You gotta calm down before you do something you’re really gonna regret! Let’s talk about this!”

Rainbow Dash's eyes watered as she looked over the burning wreckage of the Equestrian flagship. Her mind struggled to process how such a thing could happen. Surrounding the wreckage were bodies of griffons, wolves and even ponies. Rainbow recognized a few of their faces and felt her body freeze up in horror as she overlooked a pegasus wearing the air rescue uniform.
Sonic was zipping around the wreckage checking each body for a pulse before moving onto the next. He sifted through metal paneling and wooden planks in a desperate attempt to find any survivors. Each body he checked looked like it broke is heart over and over again, but still the blue hedgehog refused to give up.

"What? You don't stretch before you run? You could pull a hamstring that way." He said calmly ignoring her laughter.
"Pull a hamstring?" She asked before doubling over with laughter. "You ARE serious, you really wanna race ME! I don't think you get it, they don't call me Rainbow DASH for nothing you know."
"You do realize my name is Sonic, right?" he responded coolly while lightly bouncing on the balls of his feet.
