Broken Spirit - Chapter 3 Fluttershy's honey colored form froze right at the kitchen counter when she heard the distinct sound of blankets moving around. She pretended she couldn't see him, but the pegasus was able to catch a glimpse of the draconequus from the corner of a miffed blue eye.Broken Spirit - Chapter 3 in General Fiction More Like This
"I told you not to try and get up..."
"You said that yesterday."
"It also applies for today." Sighing, the pegasus turned away from where she was stirring another batch of medicine and calmly trotted over.
She knew he was getting aggravated; he had been condemned to that little bed for almost two weeks now. Two weeks...it was hard to believe she had survived that long with him. It was a good thing she had such patience. "Now, I know you're very frustrated."
"Why can't I move yet?" Discord griped, attempting to move his leg and only earning a soft glare from Fluttershy in retribution. With a rather adorable and childish pout, he begrudgingly retracted his limb back under the blankets.

"....You turned the rest of my lettuce into taffy."
"....I can't eat this sandwich now."
Fluttershy groaned, her saffron form rolling into the rich grass, the blades tickling her nose, brushing over her soft cheeks. She absently pulled the mayonnaise covered, wet and slimy piece of green taffy, grimacing as it stuck to her hooves. She was glad she noticed he had once again transformed her vegetable into some sort of sweet before eating it. That would have been a vile mixture.
"If you keep this up, you naughty thing, we'll be all out of vegetables soon!" Fluttershy punctuated her sentence with a firm, admonishing poke with her hoof to the cinnamon colored chest. The anger in her eyes only made the impish draconequus snicker.
"Oh please, my dear, because veggies are actually better than candy and sweets?" As he said this, an eagle talon snaked towards the soiled sandwich, peeling the mayonnaise covered taffy from the fla
Broken Spirit - 5The princess stared, honestly for just a moment she wondered who this fierce and courageous looking pony was. Surely this wasn't the quivering, timid, little filly that always backed away and bowed shyly when she came near. Never had the princess seen the pegasus so confident looking. Discord really did know how to alter and manipulate personalities, even when he caused it unintentionally.Broken Spirit - 5 in General Fiction More Like This
"Fluttershy, dear!" Celestia's tone had dipped slightly and had lost its sense of happiness. She knew why the pony was here. "What brings you to Canterlot Palace? I, well, I haven't ever seen you here unless the others were with you." It seemed she was trying to stall the impending question, though, that was more relieving to Fluttershy since the pony hadn't a clue how she'd go about asking this.
"I-umm, well, I figure..I should come see you more?" she tried pathetically. Obviously Celestia knew that wasn't the reason, but it seemed Fluttershy was just as uncomfortable with this as she
Broken Spirit - 9The marble walls inside the palace were different, newer, in better condition. There were hardly any stained glass windows, signifying history hadn't even begun yet. Light still continued to pour through the open windows, Aegeus's sun pouring its rays throughout the lonely palace hall. All was silent. All was calm.Broken Spirit - 9 in General Fiction More Like This
Suddenly, the multi colored, multi beast baby scampered down the halls on all fours, his tiny little horns mere nubs sticking out of his head, his felt like ears lopsided from having slept on them all night. His wide red eyes sparkled mischievously, a giggle escaping his lips as an angry voice shouted out promises of time outs and spankings in his general direction.
"No! I don't wanna be clean!" the five year old draconequus shouted, grinning when he realized he was managing to outrun his caretaker. The baby took a hop into the air, fluttering his puny, still developing wings.
Of course a child at that age couldn't quite grasp the concept of weight yet and thus the baby's
Broken Spirit - 12Discord, wait it isn't as it seems! I can explain! At least that's what Fluttershy thought she said, but the words stayed cemented in her throat, stuck there as her blood continued to freeze. His face wasn't readable and she couldn't tell if he was angry, sad, or heartbroken.Broken Spirit - 12 in General Fiction More Like This
Finally, he began showing some emotion and it was every one that existed. The one that screamed was betrayal.
He fingered the paper, every page of the book, and his hands and heart stung as he did. Hardened crimson gazed over the pictures and words, scanning them again and again, hoping it was one of the figments of his broken heart and guilt in a dream. But the book didn't fade.
"Where....where did you get this?" he repeated, claws digging into the cover, making small indents in the hard leather. He gazed back at the book, and then back to her. It was clear he was truly in shock and all that was distinguishable on his face was confusion.
Fluttershy's throat had swollen, siphoning off air or any hope to be
Broken Spirit - 15The rocks continued to fall and Discord desperately ignited his talon in a vibrant, golden glow, the magic illuminating the outlines of the falling rocks as he tried to dodge the deadly projectiles and scream for his sister at the same time.Broken Spirit - 15 in General Fiction More Like This
After what seemed like forever, the rocks ceased their rolling and all fell silent. There was nothing but two walls of fallen boulders on either side of Discord. The spirit desperately rammed himself against them.
"LUNA! LUNA! LUNA! LUNA, CAN YOU HEAR ME?!" Other than the sound of dripping stalactites, silence was all that greeted the spirit in return. With a distressed whine, Discord rammed himself up against the walls, finding the rocks to be just about glued together.
Discord gazed down at his talon, fully aware that teleporting to the other side of the rock pile would sap a large amount of power he couldn't afford to spare. Disregarding that thought, he disappeared in a flash of light, and reappeared on the other sid
Mutual LoveThe celebration, what remained of the sole surviving buffet table and the braver guests went on without delay, amidst what was going on in the palace's third story window. The instruments had all been destroyed, splintered pieces of wood scattered and strewn about in the grass. Much to Aegeus's appreciation, a few of his guests (plus a certain pink party pony) had offered to step in and be the music. Their taste wasn't particularly what Aegeus had in mind for his formal party, but he'd take anything by this point.Mutual Love in Drama More Like This
Aegeus swerved around, his robe whipping poor Twilight in the face. Had Discord been there, he would have laughed out loud at the grimace of pain that shot across the lavender face. "We've cleared most of the area, at least enough for you to give your speech to Trottinghan."
"Very good," the king gruffly responded. His automatically growling tone that accompanied every word he said even made Twilight shiver sometimes, as it did now. "Thank you, Twilight Sparkl
The Sweet, The Heart Warming, And The SadDiscord trekked up the stairs, that small spark of humor fading as he inwardly groaned at the task set out for him. Yes, he felt rather guilty for upsetting the small pegasus, even if she did cause the whole mess by tattling on him to Celestia. The spirit could not deny that he enjoyed Fluttershy's company.The Sweet, The Heart Warming, And The Sad in General Fiction More Like This
She, after all, was the only one that stood up for him. She nursed him back to health from the terrible 'incident' with Twilight Sparkle. The Element of Kindness opened her home to the draconequus whereas a more popular option was to turn him back to stone, tolerating his pranks and his antics, even as he tore her house apart and turned her rabbit companion into a menagerie of hilarious props. The pegasus fed him, cared for him, introduced him to a phobia of feather dusters, and loved him.
Suddenly, the trail up the stairs seemed long and heavy. But he managed to make it to her door. He tapped the knob with a claw, knowing it was locked. Locked to keep all the bad things (i.e

"Pinkie!" Applejack shouted, yanking back her sniffling friend. "What in tarnation are y'all doing? Darn near every bone in his body is broken I bet! He can't be slammed around like that!"
"But he went into the light!"
"He didn't go into the light, Pinkie, for the love of Equestria! He just passed out." The southern pony gazed down at the still twisted form; he really did look dead, limp, disheveled, tears drying onto his face. He was bleeding a bit as well.
"How am I supposed to get him back to my cottage now?" Fluttershy slumped down despondently, realizing the bad dilemma. Even if the draconequus was awake, it wasn't like he'd be able to walk to the cottage himself. Fluttershy closed her eyes when she realized what the solution was.

"You need my help? W-well, alright. What do you need me to do?"
She knew what Fluttershy would say even before it tumbled from the pegasus's mouth, although she prayed to Equestria it wasn't the case. It had indeed taken months for Twilight to be comfortable with using magic again, but she wasn't ready to try a spell, least of all on Discord.
"I need you to perform a spell for me," Fluttershy ordered, gently gripping the unicorn with her hooves and staring into her violet, searching eyes. Twilight was about to protest, but Fluttershy dragged her to the side of the spirit's bed.
Twilight let her eyes scan his shaking body in apprehension. The last spell she had done on him...

This takes place about a month before Chirin has the nightmare.
It is early spring in Hyrule. Winter has finally released its grasp and the weather is warming, but still quite wet. The grass has become green again, however the trees, as usual, were slow to follow and still quite bare of leaves.
On this day Zelda had set off to the market town early that morning to check in on how a new shop was coming along. Aryll was playing in the yard, happy to be outside again considering how much it had rained the day before. Impa was still training some new recruits, and Chirin had been training himself since late that morning. And Link had been checking in on all four of them all day amidst his own work.
The day was already half over when Chirin came back in from training. Link was sitting at the table taking care of some paperwork, and Navi was sorting documents.
The king did not take his eyes off the text as he spoke "Aryll is on the shed crying again, can you go get her down?"

Link slowly came to, he opened his eyes to find himself on his back wearing crisp white clothes under fluffy bed sheets, his long hair free of his hat and braid, his golden locks laid spread out across the pillow, Navi nestled in the golden strands asleep. He was safe in bed back in his palace surrounded by his family, Chirin asleep alongside him in the huge ornate bed. The soft light of early morning shone through the window and gleamed through the sheer white curtains that hung from the bed posts.
Link's chest was wrapped tight in bandages to hold his cracked ribs in place, his arm mended where the impact of Ganon sending Link skidding across the stone covered ground tore the metal of the Tenshioni gauntlet causing it to cut into him as a result. The deep cut on his face that he received from Dark was being held closed with strips of glue soaked cloth.

Deep in the Lost Woods, at the threshold where Termina meets Hyrule, two figures stared at each other in disbelief.
They had practically bumped heads as they made their way through the thick underbrush.
The one was intrigued to see the other's red eyes and odd blue clothing.
The second was shocked to see the other's huge wings and marked face.
Neither had seen a person with these traits before.
"What are you?" the red eyed being asked.
"May I ask the same?" the feathered youth said politely.
The red eyed one stayed quiet. The winged one responded to their gaze.

Link figured that since Dark had twice taken his son and has seen him so weak that his dark nemesis must think he has already won.

Three figures along with their steeds appeared in the woods at the threshold between the land of Hyrule and that of Termina.
One was Chirin in his Hylian form atop the pinto Fillea, wearing his father's former style of green tunic along with the hat.
Right alongside him was Link in an earthy green rustic tunic with his exposed braided hair, walking alongside his old graying mare Epona.
Behind them was the new Sheik in his armor atop the black Phantom, the sage was lagging behind a bit as he studied the landscape, reacquainting himself with the world he flew over as an owl so long ago.
Navi was in Chirin's hat, the little fairy had begun spending more time with the prince ever since that day In Gerudo valley and not just because Chirin sill wore long hats.

Link once again awoke in the safety of home, he was in the center of the large bed, wings carefully laid out and folded at either side of him under the sheets, his now lightened gold hair strewn across the pillow. His face bore the faint marks of the Tenshioni, the marks of the demon half.
Navi was curled up asleep in his hair. He was barefoot and in crisp clean night pants but no shirt due to his now permanent winged form.
Added to his collection of faded rosy scars was the red scar of the demon. A huge crimson gash deep in his flesh, dealt to him upon the healing of a wound that was cursed to never heal. A wound that brought him within the grasp of death only to be saved by a drastic choice.
Link's body was numb but a deep feeling of loss wrenched at his heart causing him to feel a pain that his nerves could not "Kaepora " he whispered softly not looking away from the ceiling, his eyes adjusting to the light. Kaepora
