My Little Pony: The Light of Equestria Ch.27
Within the desert town of Appleloosa, every pony, zebra, buffalo, and dragon that were not taken by the Darkness had gathered to discuss plans on fleeing Equestria. It was a hard decision for most to make, but there was no other choice.
According to the oldest and wisest of the dragons, without the aid of the Light, specifically from one who wields it as the champion, Courageous Heart, did long ago, there was no hope of summoning the one power capable of defeating the Master of Darkness: the Rainbow of Light.
Even with the numbers that remained, plus the Elements of Harmony, it would not be enough and would only lead to a quick defeat. The Elements had the power to vanquish any lesser evils as they did before, but without the Light, they were now rendered useless.
As all the creatures discussed away, the five mares found a spot away from the group so they could talk more privately. Most of them had Twilight on their minds and started to wonder if they were wrong to dismiss her and the

The mighty Rainbow of Light continued to unleash its purity across the land and remove any remaining Darkness that had corrupted Equestria and the rest of the world. Once all traces of evil recently spread by the Dark One had vanished, the Rainbow faded away.
Courageous and the Mane Six were returned to the ground where they rejoined the various creatures that were at a loss for words after what they had just witnessed.
Equestria was once again the beautiful paradise that existed for over a thousand years. The eyes of the many gazed all around…simply astonished by the warmth of the sun that shined down on this land they call home.
Silence was upon all the ponies, dragons, buffalo, and zebras; no pony knew what to say or how to react to finally seeing the Darkness disappear and the Light returning once more.
The silence was soon broken when one pony within the crowd screamed with excitement, “We did it! We saved Equestria!!! WHOOOOOOP!!!! Chee

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.
For Courageous Heart, what he felt towards this very special and beautiful pon

Our story begins in Canterlot, which is home to the most elite ponies in all of Equestria. 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 was 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. She has plans to study extra hard this week, and learn more than she has before; Perhaps it will be more then she can handle, but the bright and brilliant little unicorn never backs down when it comes to studying and learning all she can.

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.
"W-w-why?...*sniff*...why...?"She mutters to herself as she sobs wi

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 their best to make friends with the rest as well.

Every pony and creature within Appleloosa were at a loss for words to what they saw before their own eyes:
The black jeweled amulet that Tirek the Supreme wore around his neck was glowing brightly, but not of any dark power; it was the Light itself, the source of all that was Good and Pure.
Whatever was happening made the Overlord of Evil very angry as well as fearful. He grabbed the amulet by the chains that held it and ripped it off. As he averted his eyes from the Light that glowed from the jewel, he bellowed:
“HOW CAN THIS BE!?! IT’S NOT POSSIBLE!!!”
“…Twilight…” came the voice from within the amulet, which could be heard by all who were watching and listening, including the one pony who recognized it completely.
Twilight Sparkle gasped as she stared at the Light that did not harm the eyes of her or the others as it did Tirek and his minions. Lost in thought for a moment, she wondered how this could be possible: How could it be th

"Wait!!!" Twilight Sparkle cries out upon opening her eyes and finding herself returned to her bedroom and out of the dream that she still tries to feel if it was a dream...or something more. As she sits up with slight panting heard from released from her lungs to her mouth, the lavender unicorn looks around and notices that it is still late at night and all is as it was the same as before.
"Ugh...Twilight?" The little baby dragon moans from his little basket bed nearby. Obviously, the scream of his best friend awoken him as well, "What's with all...the screaming...?" As he opens his mouth to release a great yawn, Spike looks up at Twilight as she sits up and awaits for her to answer.
"Sorry Spike...I just..." Twilight apologizes and is about to explain what happened, but has a feeling that not even Spike will understand nor believe what she encountered within her dreams; She may fear her little dragon will think she is crazy or something...so she decides to

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.
The five mares fell fast through the trapdoor and found themselves sliding down a sl

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 dragon.”
Twilight hugged her dragon and replied, “I’m sorry, Spike. You’re right. You will

As the Light radiating from the six mares came to an end, they found themselves freed from the dark barriers that had kept them imprisoned. The girls would have never believed it would be possible, despite the odds being against them, but because they did believe, the true power of the Elements of Harmony was unlocked and came to their aid.
Twilight Sparkle felt so proud of herself and her friends. Suddenly, she saw Courageous Heart back on his hooves with his powers and strength returned. She galloped over to him and hugged him tight.
“Courageous!!” The lavender unicorn held him close and pressed the side of her face into his coat, “I’m so thankful you are alright.”
The young stallion hugged her back and smiled, “As am I, Twilight. It is all thanks to you and your friends.”
Twilight blushed a little and look up at him, “Really?”
“Yes. You asked the Light to aid us in the direst of times, and it sent the Spirits of the past to

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 has done more then enough for us already,” Courageous Heart decreed.
“Yeah, I agree. Bes

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 unicorn to no end.
The road feels endless, as much as the night and storms above. From the look

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 control my body or actions. I really wish you did cast that spell on me. I could have hurt 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 Shining Armor with an evil grin on her face.
“Are we ready?”

Some ways away from the Zebra village, the two little ponies are being escorted to a different part of the swamps; Their guides are not saying a word on where they are going, only to follow in silence.
Rainbow Dash feels like a prisoner and is getting the urge to fly away and escape, before the opportunity slips away. But she knows it will not do anypony any good, especially that she'd only be letting her friends down. Pinkie Pie, on the other hand, hops happily without a worry in her mind. The zebras do not mind her bouncing, but watch her carefully nonetheless. The little pink pony with the poofy mane has taking a liking to the zebras, and they to her...a little.
After awhile, the group reaches their destination: a wide open lake of the swamps, filled with stones, branches, and other creatures such as frogs and bugs. Both ponies look around and wonder what all this is about.

Ponies from all over Equestria are arriving at the glorious capital of Canterlot to attend the greatest social event hosted by Princess Celestia herself: The Grand Galloping Gala. There are many who have come from as far as Baltimare, Manehattan, and even the Crystal Empire. Wearing their finest suits and dresses, many are looking forward to this wondrous night that is sure to be the best night they can ever dream of.
The carriages start to arrive one by one. Once they pull up to the entrance, the ponies within exit, make their way across the walkway, and into the city. After so many come and move on, the Apple Carriage pulled by the four mice-horses has at last been granted their turn as they come to a complete stop at the front.

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 cyan Pegasus, “If…you don’t…mind me…asking.&

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.
Twilight quickly joined him and together they pulled the doors open, while the five

The land of Equestria was now facing her Darkest hour; As the storm clouds above spiraled and roared with thunder, the presence of evil was growing ever stronger.
Those of the army of Light that had yet to be corrupted by the Darkness were still holding their own in the ruins of Ponyville, the skies above, and the castle of the Dark One.
But as the righteous creatures fought, most were eventually turned into evil by the Dark Ponies. It would only be a matter of moments before the Light would fall, and the Darkness would finally establish complete world domination.
Within the wicked fortress of Midnight Castle, the battle between the Master of the Darkness and the Champion of the Light continued on:
As Tirek the Supreme stood on his levitated platform high above the throne room, he stretched forth his hand towards the clouds. Within seconds, bolts of lightning came down and stuck the floors all around.

Everypony in Ponyville and Cloudsdale awoke by the loud, ear-shattering sounds of thunder. This dared the bravest of ponies to look through their windows into the outside, only to see the entire night sky being covered by massive, dark storm clouds.
Some ponies can already tell something is wrong; This is a storm unlike anypony has ever seen before. There is not much they could do about it, except stay indoors and take shelter until it all blows over.
The Apple Family stay close together in the kitchen as the roaring of the storm rises in volume. Big Macintosh holds his little sister Applebloom close to protect her. They notice Granny Smith with her helmet on, preparing for the unexpected.
At the Carousel Boutique, the young filly Sweetie Belle hugs her parents tight as they keep her safe from the storm that frightens her. Although she feels safe in their embrace, she worries a great deal for her big sister, Rarity.

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.
“Have we?” She asked out loud, “Been that long already? Usually I could go twenty minutes before tiring out. I must be getting old.”

Shining Armor and his two elite guards make their way towards the throne where their master, Tirek the Supreme, sits; His two greatest minions are by his side.
Celestia stands on the left; Her orange mane is like fire that flows endlessly while she wears orange armor on certain places of her body. The former princess is now a bodyguard for the Supreme Master of Darkness, and will protect him without question.
Spike the dragon stands at the right side. His eyes are dark green with an eerie glow…and every time he snorts, small amounts of smoke exit from his nostrils. He has become Tirek’s pet and faithful servant.

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 they snarled and prepared to pounce on the Champion of the Light.

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.
But now as the storm clouds spread across the skies and the day refus
