The restored dragon rose onto his four claws and stretched out his wings. After all that he had been through, Spike was thankful to be himself again; freed from the Darkness that bound him for some time. Rarity and Twilight wiped the tears from their eyes and smiled upon their dear friend. The very dragon they both cherished was with them again.
“Twilight. Rarity. I’m…I’m sorry-”
Rarity rushed up to him and places her hoof on his lips, “Don’t you dare apologize, Spikey-Wikey. You have nothing to be sorry for.”
Twilight smiled, “She’s right, Spike. It was Tirek that made you do those thing. You did nothing wrong.”
Spike nodded as Rarity removed her hoof, “I know, but…” He sighed lightly, “…I tired to fight it, but the Darkness was too strong. I could see everything that was happening, but could not

Twilight Sparkle snuggled close to the brown alicorn that sat right next to her; Her head rested underneath his chin, while the side of her face brushed against his soft coat. She could hear his heartbeat with her ear; such rhythm and strength made her own beat just the same.
Although she only knew Courageous Heart for a short time, Twilight could not ignore what she was feeling towards him. This young stallion had given her so much: this incredible place within her own dreams…one that many would seek but never find. He had even bestowed the power of the Light to her which helped free her dear little dragon, Spike.
There were so many things Twilight wanted to say to him, but the moment was just too perfect and special. She refused to do anything that would end all this. She remained close to him, while listening to the sounds of the birds and crickets all around them.

The green and purple dragon was flying at great speed as the Badlands were within sight. The two unicorns upon his back held on tight as they were nearing their destination at long last.
“It’s been a long time since we were here,” Twilight Sparkle stated.
“Not long enough. I really don’t want to be here,” Spike fretted.
“I know those awful dragons were cruel to you before, Spikey-Wikey, but we must ask for their help, whether we like it or not,” Rarity reasoned with him as she hugged the large dragon.
“Rarity has a point, Spike. But I do agree with you too: dragons have never been kind to ponies, but we have to give it a chance,” Twilight added, “Lets not forget, they are your kind and-”
“I am NOT one of them!” Spike interjected, “I am better then they are. I am more of a pony then a d

Twilight Sparkle continues to cry with her head buried within her arms as she lies upon the ground. No matter how much she wants to stop, she can not...not after everything that had just happened to her. No pony can understand what this little lavender unicorn is feeling right now. Every creature and pony that they gathered to battle the Darkness...refuses to fight, all because some old dragon says it is hopeless.
But this is not the main reason why Twilight is crying. Her own friends, the ones she cares for and loves so much, have betrayed her; They refuse to believe what she has seen in her dreams...and would rather flee than stay and fight for their home.Twilight knows what she has seen is real, but now she is all alone...with nothing but her heart broken, and the magic of friendship gone. She is all alone; she has lost her home, her family, and now her best friends to the Darkness...or the fear of the Darkness.

“Twilight!” Called out the voice of a worried unicorn, “Twilight, wake up!!”
The little lavender pony awoke upon hearing the screams of her friend. She rose up and started panting, while looking around in all direction, searching for something that was obviously not there. “Courageous?!” Twilight screamed, “Courageous!!!”
Rarity was confused and tried to calm her friend, “Twilight, what in the name of Celestia are you screaming about?!”
Twilight quickly realized she was no longer dreaming, and the stallion she was embracing had vanished. The sad little pony sat down on the grass and hung her head low. All she could do from that point was try to accept where she was now.
“Twilight…are you sure you are alright?” Rarity asked.
Twilight Sparkle was not sure if she was; after the dream she had, th

In the southern part of Equestria is a long road covered in dirt and small pebbles. Following the trail are two little unicorns, who’s destination lie further south in a place called the Badlands.
The lavender pony with the purple and pink streak mane is using her magic to light the way as they walk down the road in the dark night. She keeps herself ever vigilant in case of dangers, though there is hardly anything to be seen or heard from their current position.
“Are we there yet, Twilight?” Complains the white pony with the stylish purple mane.
Annoyed with her friend asking that same question over and over for the past hour, Twilight Sparkle answers politely for the final time, “For the last time, Rarity…no, we are not there yet, and I doubt we will be for a long while.”
The prissy pony moans and continues complaining as they walk, irritating the other un

The two dragon escorts finally arrived at the front gate of Midnight castle with Garble and his gang riding on their backs. After pushing back the Shadowbolts, they were able to rejoin the group of ponies, along with the wisest of their clan. Unfortunately when they landed, they saw the Elder lying down with a bump on her head. Garble rushed over to his grandmother, hoping she was alright.
“What happened to her?” the worried, red teenage dragon asked.
Twilight Sparkle and the girls explained how she came to be like this, as well as their encounter with a Rock Ogre. The Dragons had no trouble believing them, since they have had encounters with such creatures outside of Equestria, and the rocks around them were evidence enough to prove the presence of one.
“But will she be alright?” Garble asked.
“Yes. She is just sleeping now, but we should let her rest. She

Finally, at long last, the group had arrived at the Castle gates, and we ready for the next obstacle that might be lying in wait for them. The Front Gates of Midnight Castle stood tall to the eyes of the small group of ponies and dragons that were before it. A dark energy covered the entire area of the entrance, which was without a doubt a barrier preventing any from entering.
Courageous Heart stepped forward to examine the door closer, “Just as I thought: this barrier is of Darkness…one that only the Light can break down.”
“Well then, lets get it down so we can get in,” Rainbow Dash encouraged, “Although I don’t understand why we can’t just find another way in.”
“I…have to agree with Rainbow Dash. Wouldn’t it be easier to find a safer way in?” Fluttershy asked nervously, to which Courageous turned to look at both her and the cya

The seven ponies finally made it out into the courtyard; The area was wide and open, and right in front of them were the doors that would lead to the throne room. Courageous stared up at the balcony that was without a doubt the room where Tirek sat.
“We are almost there! Its just through that door and across a few more hallways,” The brown alicorn declared.
“We have made it this far…I am ready for anything!” Twilight also declared.
Courageous and Twilight galloped on ahead. The other five were ready to gallop with them, when suddenly the floor beneath them disappeared. Applejack, Rarity and Fluttershy fell down the hole, while Pinkie Pie tried to avoid it by grabbing onto Rainbow Dash. Unfortunately, Rainbow was surprised by all this and could not stay in the air with another holding her down. She fell along with the pink pony down the hole.

An enormous fire burns brightly within the Hayseed Swamp village, and many zebras have gathered to take part in a celebration to welcome their honored guests: Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie.
The two little ponies have been commended for facing one of the tribe’s most challenging trials, all while learning the true meaning of what it was all about. For this, they have earned the right to be welcomed and treated as one of the tribe. As apart of tradition, the zebras are to throw a party for the two honored mares.
Pinkie and Rainbow are escorted to the center of the village and right before their eyes is a sight they never expected: every zebra is there to give them the big welcome. There are bowls of the finest food prepared for them, and the sounds of drums and flutes begin to play and all get up and dance to the music that echoes throughout the night.

The hour has reached seven in the morning, yet the sun does not rise; The everlasting storm continues on high above as the night presses on. All this seems endless and many fear they will never see the daylight again.
Applejack is already up and about, anxious to get an early start on the road towards the buffalo territory. She fills her saddlebag with a canteen of water and a couple of apples; There is no telling how long they may be out there.
After packing the necessary essentials, Applejack heads back upstairs to Fluttershy's room. She knocks on the door and calls out, "Fluttershy? Time ta' get up and hit da trail." There is no answer. "Sugarcube…?" The orange earth pony whispers as she opens the door, only to find the innocent little pegasus still sound asleep. Applejack is relived to see her friend sleeping peacefully, and without any nightmares this time. As much as she hates to wake her, they have to get going.

Deep beneath the surface of the Everfree Forest, Twilight Sparkle and her friends Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Rainbow Dash continue moving through the underground passage that began from Zecora's hut and ends where they do not know. Despite the dark and dirt all around, everypony treks on until they find the end... with the two unicorns in the group lighting up the way with their horns to allow sight to see where they were going.
“I still find it hard to believe Zecora had an escape route right under her hut all this time. Strange, huh?” Rainbow Dash mentions to her friends...even though everypony is too busy walking through the tunnels to answer, they do agree with the cyan mare.
Twilight tries to see on ahead while observing the details of the passage walls, “Perhaps this was here long before Zecora settled in the Everfree Forest.” Another theory that comes to the little unicorn

This is also where its rulers, Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, live and watch over all those that live in this grand paradise...as well as maintain the day and night together. Canterlot is also the home of Princess Celestia’s star student, Twilight Sparkle...until she moved to the town of Ponyville in order to be close to all the new friends she made during her visit so long ago.
Today, Twilight has come back to Canterlot to retrieve some new reading material from the Royal Library.

Everypony in Ponyville and Cloudsdale that were asleep even during the hours of the Grand Galloping Gala in Canterlot awaken to the loud, ear-shattering sounds of thunder. Such loud cracking of unfriendly weather dares the bravest of ponies to look through their windows to view what is occurring on the outside...only to see the entire night sky being covered by massive, dark storm clouds.
Already, nearly everypony ponies can tell something is wrong; This is a storm unlike anypony has ever seen before...nor is it something conjured by the weather ponies or by any spells known by the most talented unicorns. All that these frightened ponies can do is stay indoors and take shelter until it all blows over.
The storm continues on for almost an hour and shows no signs of ending anytime soon. Everypony within Ponyville grow restless and more uneasy to this sudden turn of events. But then all of a sudden, the sound of the storm begin to f

The endless night pressed on; the unfriendly storms that roamed throughout the skies showed no signs of ceasing. The thunder roared and flashes of lightning could be seen, but did not last long enough to brighten the lands of Equestria. But this gloomy sight did not lower the spirits of the many creatures that were gathered in a small desert town called Appleloosa. They were too busy making friendly conversations with the ones that they once despised.
Moved by the words of a certain pony that was respected and honored by all, the buffalo, zebras, dragons, and ponies had put aside their differences and agreed to come together as friends. United after a long history of separation, the six great species of Equestria could finally achieve perfect harmony and drive the Darkness out of their home once and for all.
As the creatures continued to talk amongst their neighbors, a few certain ponies did t

“Listen up, all of you!!” Shouted the captain of the Dark Pony Guard, Shining Armor, “The enemy is coming, and we will not allow anypony to enter our Master’s castle!!”
The elite guard plus many other corrupted ponies stomped their hooves in response to the captain, showing their unyielding devotion.
“Give no quarter and show no mercy!!” Shining Armor ordered as his void eyes glowed with Darkness, “Our Master will soon have complete control over the entire world, and we shall see to it…that ALL bow before his Supreme Might!!!”
The crowd of evil ponies cheered the name of their Master over and over, “All Hail Tirek! All Hail Tirek! All Hail Tirek!!” At that moment, the captain ordered the troops to divide into groups and guard the castle walls and doors. As they scattered, the former princess of the now Dark Crystal Empire approached Sh

Princess Cadance gazes in disbelief to what she is seeing: Her beloved, Shining Armor, kneeling before the monstrous centaur known as Tirek. Every member of the Royal Guard follow suit and do the very same; They are no longer loyal to the Princess, nor to their own kind...and have become servants of this dark demon.
“Shining Armor! Please don’t do this. I love you!” Cadance pleads to her husband as tears run down her eyes. Her sorrow turns to anger as she turns her attention to Tirek and screams at him, “What did you do to my Shining Armor?!!!”
“HE BELONGS TO ME NOW…AS DO THE REST OF YOUR PONY GUARDS!! BUT SOON...ALL OF YOU WILL BOW DOWN TO ME” Tirek swears to the pink alicorn princess who dares to speak out against him.

Everypony inside the Wedding Hall cowers in fear at the sight of this giant, evil creature that now stands before them; He stands on four hooves as any pony would, but has the upper body of a minotaur. The look in their eyes only makes him laugh in amusement, which is soon followed by the sounds of thunder and lightning roaring from the outside; Whoever or whatever this creature is and why he has come here...is beyond what anypony can imagine
“How dare you enter my Kingdom, and frighten my subjects! What do you want?!” Princess Celestia demands answers from this monstrous creature as she raises her voice.

“Stop pushing me!” yelled an earth pony to the buffalo next to him.
“I was not “pushing” you…I was only trying to get through, and I happened to bump into you by accident,” the buffalo defended.
“Hmph! From your size, I doubt that is not all you bump into!”
The buffalo snorted and glared at the now angry pony. A few zebras nearby were getting very annoyed with their arguing, and came over to separate them both. “Will you two be quiet! We are trying to listen to the conversation the ponies inside are having.” A female zebra ordered.
Although the two wanted to snap back at the zebra, she was right; shortly after the Champion of the Light returned, he was brought into the Salt Block Saloon to rest. Many ponies and the leaders of the other creatures gathered inside, while the rest had to remain outside since there was not enou

After traveling all night and into the same night, the two little ponies can finally see the Hayseed Swamps before them. Their journey is at its end, and the search for the zebras within the swamps has begun.
"Well, there it is, Pinkie. Looks like you did know where you were going after all."
The pink pony turns to her friend and smiles, "Oh silly, I never said I knew where I was going."
Rainbow Dash's eyes widened, "What?!"
"Well, duuuuuhhh...when did I ever mention that I knew the way? I was just going southeast, since that's where the swamp is...and here we are!" Pinkie explained as she hopped on ahead.
"But...you...I mean!..." Rainbow feels so much confusion from all this, but sighs heavily, rolls her eyes, and drops it. She then takes flight to catch up with her annoying, but funniest best friend.

Within the skies above, flying just below the storm clouds, were a total of four dragons and two little ponies. The mid-sized green and purple dragon was carrying his two dear friends, Twilight Sparkle and Rarity, upon his back. He flew alongside three other dragons that agreed to come with them to Appleloosa.
Two of the bigger dragons were escorts for their guests as well as the much larger one leading them: The Dragon Elder known as the Wise One. She was ancient, nearly eight-hundred years old but still had plenty of strength to fly and give assistance to the others. “By the dragons of old, I never thought flying this far would take so long, and be so tiring,” the large, faded red dragon complained.
“But, we have only been flying for fifteen minutes, “ Spike stated carefully and politely.

Appleloosa: a town way out in the middle of the desert. Built within a year, the pioneer ponies worked long and hard to plant a large crop of apple trees. Unfortunately, some time ago a nearby herd of buffalo were upset with the ponies for planting their apple trees upon their Stampeding Trail. This led to many problems that seemed impossible to solve.
The Buffalo were soon driven to stampeding over the town of Appleloosa, and the citizens had no choice but to fight back by throwing apple pies at them. But before the town suffered any major damage, the chief of the buffalo got a taste of their pies, and after reaching an agreement with the sheriff of Appleloosa, a solution was found.
The apple trees that were planted on the path of the Stampeding Grounds were removed while the rest remained around it. The ponies shared their delicious apple pies with the buffalo and since then, they have both remained good neighbors.

The Throne Room doors were just at the end of the hallway. What lied on the other side was the very monster that was responsible for all the misery and misfortune that had befallen Equestria and the rest of the world. Courageous Heart and Twilight Sparkle galloped on down this long and creepy corridor; the walls were of dark stone, with torches that lit with black fire. The lavender unicorn could not stand her once beautiful home looking like this any longer. She ran faster, determined to put an end to all this.
As they got halfway, they heard the sound of banging on a pair of doors coming from the left side. Twilight felt that another minion of the demon centaur was bound to appear, but Courageous ran to the doors and tried to open them.
“Are you sure it’s safe?” Twilight asked with caution.
“Yes! Your friends are on the other side, trying to get out!” Courageous informed.

Lurking among the trees and shadows are where the many creatures make their homes within the Everfree Forest. Some are of a kind and gentle sort, while others are more of both mean and scary.
Originally, these creatures would pose little trouble to any who journey into their territory. But now, they begin gathering around the hut of the zebra herbalist, Zecora. Surrounding the entire tree that the hut is base in so that none may escape, the now wicked creatures move in closer...with their faces becoming visible for a certain pony to see as she watches from the window inside.

The ground shook as the mighty hoof steps of the Army of Light charged into the town of Ponyville. Easily breaking through the barrier of logs that were once apple trees, the numerous species of Equestra scattered and engaged in battle to free their once beautiful home.
Courageous Heart and Twilight Sparkle stayed together and ran through the town, fighting off all in their path.
Twilight powered up her horn and shot random spells at all the dark ponies; Her aim was perfect and true, not once did she miss. Since these ponies were but servants of the Darkness, her spells were able to get through.
Three started to charge at her, but Twilight pulled a quick maneuver and turned them into frogs…temperarly of course. However the frogs still had those dark, void eyes, so her attempts were only half the result.
Courageous found himself surrounded by seven dark ponies. He stood his ground as the
