Pony Pov Series episode 435 END Farewell friends
Farewell my friends.
Shining Armor
I had the strangest dream once. Yeah, strange even for me. It was after we got back to Canterlot but before Chrysalis brainwashed me, I think.
It started with Nameless as some kind of post-apocalyptic road warrior reject, straight out of “The End of Equestria” or “After the Megaspells Fell.” Yes, that Nameless, the reality-warping bane of my existence for years, except that it never happened. Long story.
So, Nameless was travelling around a world of chaos and ruin. No, he wasn’t pulling a caravan. Nameless rode around on a ‘super awesome’ smoke-belching two-wheeled machine, because why wouldn’t he? He dreamed up all kinds of evil bad guys and heroically defeated them all, until one day, he picked a fight with Discord. I honestly wasn’t sure who to cheer for at that point, but Discord won and turned Nameless into a mindless blank slate, like he was when Pandora first imagined hi

My Little Pony, Forgotten Plot Points
"Wow! We finally got the castle of the two sisters restored!" Princess Twilight said proudly. The girls sat in the main room of the castle, fully restored to its prime.
"Ya know," Applejack said, "Ah gotta admit, it's like we forgot we were even doing anything with this place after we opened the harmony box."
"Well, we did have to fight Tirek, then we had to be sent on our first mission by the cutie mark map..." Twilight explained.
"Yeah, Ah get that, but seriously, after all the hard work we put into place... it was like YOU had your own castle right close to Ponyville, with the library that was yer beloved home conveniently destroyed, there was no need for us to bother to fix up this place... when that wasn't even the point of why we were doing to begin with."
"Applejack you're just being strange, did you have some bad cider?" Rainbow Dash asked.

Death Note/PonyPOVSeries DrabbleByWolfram-and-hart
The Alicorn of Death, King of the Grim Reapers, Mortis asked one of his angels of death, "So, Ryuk, what did you learn as Mr. Cake?"
Ryuk said, "... That life is precious and not easily taken away."
Mortis nodded, "Good. Now, back to your assigned tasks."
Ryuk bowed, "Yes, sir. but... I have a really big favor to ask."
Mortis raised an 'eyebrow' or would with his skull face, "And what is that?"
Ryuk pleaded, " ...Please don't have me be the one to write Cupcake, Pound Cake or Pumpkin Cake's names in my Death Note!"
Mortis decided, "... Very well. But it'll cost you an apple. "

"Oh Sunburst!" Starlight said. "Your glow is like the sunrise!"
"Really? I thought I was more an orange color than a sunrise."

Discord Not Stone, Drabble Request
Discord holds a villain still while the girls blast both of them with a rainbow preparing to get turned to stone, but being surprised that he wasn’t turned to stone due to him accepting the magic of friendship.
King Inferno, the previous Dragon Lord who had refused to given up his position when his term ended, and whom Torch had challenged and toppled, had escaped Tartarus, and if allowed to go unchallenged would destroyed Equestria, and pretty much any other kingdom he felt like.
But thankfully the Elements of Harmony weren't about to let that happen! They had the regalia to turn the giant dragon into a solid rock mountain! But for being a giant dragon, he was surprisingly fast, and his fire breath was somehow about to block the Elements of Harmony,
"Because of course it does! Nothing can ever be simple or easy for us!" Rainbow Power Applejack cursed.

A giant sized human Scootaloo squatted down among a model personal skating park, playing with her finger skate board. Comparing tricks with a tiny pegasus Scootaloo.

Sealed in Tartarus, the tyrant Tirek and his apprentice Cozy Glow sat in cages next to each other.
"I'm bored," Cozy Glow said.
"I"m bored too," Tirek said.
"It's gonna be a bit until the next of our evil plan goes into affect."
"Won't your parents just break you out?"
Cozy Glow shrugged. "Not sure, my father was a demon and my mother was a jackal. My adopted parents have no clue of course. I don't count on them being able to bully or protest me into getting released though. At least I didn't get redeemed."

Storm Queen, Drabble Request
The results are in, and the former subjects of the Storm Empire have voted for Tempest Shadow to be their new queen.
"It's over Yetis! The Storm King is dead! His war mongering days are over! You longer need to follow his path, to defy him was death, but now you are prisoners of his will no longer!" Tempest Shadow shouted to the assembled Yetis, her voice echoing off of the icy cliffs of the Yeti homeland.
Grubber just stood safe next to her.
The Yetis spoke in their won language that Tempest had taken the time to learn.
"So... are we correct in surmising, that the Storm King is dead, as you said of course. But also, you are the reason he's dead?"
"He self destructed to his own evil." Then Tempest Shadow realized what she'd said 'self-destructed' in the yeti-language was a transparent euphemism for 'I'm not going to tell you how they really died' because it was so transparent a lie.

Anyone willing to write a 100 or so word story for me? I can pay via pay pal. I wrote a short horror piece and I freaked myself out! I need something happy to get myself to sleep!

The first thing I do with my creative freedom is write a horror story. Ugh. How encouraging. 
I just imagined an epic duel (to the music of Last Goodbye of Undertale Musical) of Diamond Tiara (not Nightmare Nhilis) defeating Cozy Glow in a one on one fight, showing off how powerful she could be, and what separates her world view from Cozy Glows, (and Cozy using an uber win blade that bisects a tower, but just rolls over Diamond Tiara unharmed, and Diamond riddling here with bone-breaking punches) with basically Diamond Tiara finally getting out of her funk, then curb stomping the little psycho filly... but I'm NOT going to, because I have free will! :-) And it makes me proud I can say no to that! I can move towards my future instead of writing more fanfics! 
:-) I just realized... I have to be actually worried that I didn't get everyone with the 'thank you for reading' message... that means... that means many people have read this tale. Thank you for sticking with it till the end!
Be sure to leave a message on the final art picture linked at the end of the final chapter, to let me know you've seen it. It won't be posted anywhere else ever. It's for those who have read pony pov series to the end. So be sure to leave a comment. She is waiting for you. 
The Pony POV Series is officially open season, with Kendell2 as its head curator.

"Universe Bible: According to Alex Warlorn, while he is leaving after finishing the Finale, he set some ground rules for the POV series should anyone be willing to write Seasons 9 and beyond to correspond with the events of FIM Seasons 3 and onward:

"Animated canon villains level up in proportion with the heroes." Adaptational Badass goes to both sides.

"There are no background characters." The Main Characters Do Everything is fully averted here. Can't let the main heroes carry all that workload now, do we?
-Regarding the two rules above, while it's true that the alicorn princesses can no longer be the divine force as they were in previous seasons after Applebloom's "End of the World" Special Cosmic Retcon, it is no excuse to just start re-enacting all their canonical defeats in FIM Season 3 onwards. Give them better roles and if they actually have to lose, try to make it so that the drama from The Worf Effect is actually believable instead of being a blatant example of plot convenience. Same goes for the Equestrian military.

"No 'I don't remember' secondary side effects of mind magic."

"Discord and Celestia's families already had Ragnarok, they don't need a second one." 

"No character bashing."

Shining Armor

I had the strangest dream once. Yeah, strange even for me. It was after we got back to Canterlot but before Chrysalis brainwashed me, I think.

It started with Nameless as some kind of post-apocalyptic road warrior reject, straight out of “The End of Equestria” or “After the Megaspells Fell.” Yes, that Nameless, the reality-warping bane of my existence for years, except that it never happened. Long story.

So, Nameless was travelling around a world of chaos and ruin. No, he wasn’t pulling a caravan. Nameless rode around on a ‘super awesome’ smoke-belching two-wheeled machine, because why wouldn’t he? He dreamed up all kinds of evil bad guys and heroically defeated them all, until one day, he picked a fight with Discord. I honestly wasn’t sure who to cheer for at that point, but Discord won and turned Nameless into a mindless blank slate, like he was when Pandora first imagined him, I guess.

Here’s where things got weird. Cadence was in my dream too, surviving in that ruined world, and she led a world war against Discord. She wished for a knight in shining armor to come save her, and Nameless… he turned into me! Cadence acted like she didn’t even know me at first, but we fell in love all over again and then she and everypony 'remembered' me.  I fought as hard as I could for her… but I’m no Alicorn. Discord turned me into a literal empty suit of armor with one little finger-snap.

Then Cadence and Trixie saved the world and they turned Discord nice somehow. Rarity almost turned evil to make everything pretty and preserved and unmoving forever, but… she changed her mind, I guess? Then an evil Nightmare clone of my sister showed up and said we were all fakes, and I was the worst fake of all, and she absorbed me and my sister too, and then the evil Twilight went around gobbling up more and more good Twilights until one good Twilight told her 'No!' and evil Twilight exploded twice and I got spat out.

What? I said it was weird.

The whole dream was so vivid, I started writing it down, but then I realized I’d written a fifty-two page novella about me and my worst enemy secretly being the same pony traveling through time, and I wised up and burned it before Cadence found it.

...

So why am I bringing this up now?

Because my dream looked logical and brief compared to the news I got after Cadence and I got back from our honeymoon with Kifuko. (Yes, the evil witch who brainwashed me, my sister and who knows how many others and impersonated my wife while doing so, is now my adopted foal. Funny how things work out.)

Cadence was with Digger Wasp and Hercules, gathering the latest intelligence from the changeling network, while Princess Celestia met me in my private office and casually mentioned that there might have been a small situation while I was away, already handled, everything just fine now. A small matter involving my sister, the other Bearers of the Elements of Harmony, a gaggle of foals, and the Princesses themselves, duking it out with a missing filly turned Nightmare AND Discord, free of his stone prison.

"You did WHAT while we were on our honeymoon!?!?" I exclaimed, exasperated. I didn't know whether to be angry at being left out or happy we'd gotten to take our honeymoon in peace.

Princess Celestia thrust a warm coat and a pair of saddlebags at me. "No time for that, soldier! IT has returned! Briefing papers, on the train, go, go, go!"

And that's how Cadence, Kifuko, and I found ourselves on a train that had been built leading out to the middle of a frozen Alicorn-forsaken nowhere, for no apparent reason, with ancient texts from a forgotten civilization for us to pass the time.

Oh, and there's a bunch of ponies who need a protective shield put up ASAP, or they might die from the cold. Okay... that's a good reason to hurry.

Diamond Tiara

I was surprised when I was given one last welcome home gift, well, I kept getting them, but this was soon after I got home. A box with holes in it... I heard barking inside... and open the box... to find a kitten instead.

"They say that pets can help with recovery Miss Tiara..." Star Shine explained.

I'd seen this ... in other worlds, and smirked. "Nice to meet you," I said to the kitten.

Twilight Sparkle's Final Interview

Oh, nice to see you again! Here's hoping we don't have any more epic battles with mad gods for the fate of the world for a while. At least a month or two.  Maybe we can get back to friendship problems that pop up about once a week and just take an afternoon to clean up, so we’ll all have plenty of time to laugh about them later.

It has been one exciting year, hasn't it? Hopefully next year won't be so intense, like say, half as many crazy adventures with my friends. Just once in my life, can fate give me at least that much for saving the world again…?

Huh? You've been telling everypony in Ponyville thanks and goodbye? You're leaving town for good? I'm the last pony on your list to say goodbye to?! Wait, wait… I get that your task of interviewing all of us about our experiences with Discord is definitely wrapped up after this... but won't you come back later on to check out Pinkie Pie being a mother? Or hear Kifuko's first words? ... You really do have to go?

Your work visa is expired? Seriously? Can't we just ask Princess Celestia to renew it for you?

It's not that simple? But… why? You have family and friends and responsibilities, yes, I understand, but why can't you visit again? I won't accept any evasive answers, not this time! You've been here with us, and you're our friends, and I want to know where you’re going and why.

I KNOW some secrets are meant to stay secret, as physically ill as it makes me to say that! This isn't some stupid gossip we’re sharing about a neighbor’s private life! You're my friends. It affects me. I have a right to know, I'm not a foal. I already know things that have made me question reality and existence!

Remember when you gave me Kimono's diary!? Her last account of a world vanishing? I asked how you got her journal, and who you are really? 'You will know soon enough, Twilight Sparkle. You will know soon enough.' That’s what you said! That journal inspired me to ask Princess Celestia to tell me the truth. It’s what started me down the road of discovering more with Zecora, Pinkie Pie, and Princess Luna… of learning about the Alicorns, the Draconequi, ancient wars, the windigos… I would have been ignorant of all those things forever, if you hadn't given me that book.

Did you mean it when you said I'd find out 'soon enough?’ Or is this one of those things I'm expected to wait until I'm dead to find out?

Well!?

OH! I AM SO SORRY! You WERE just about to tell me, and that's why you chose to see me off last!

Excuse me while I blush… but it really is frustrating how often you say 'soon enough' and it feels like years later when "soon enough" comes! Granted, that might also be because of the 'barrage of super-villains' as Rainbow Dash put it. Oh, and you were saying goodbye because you KNOW that we're all friends! Sorry! Forgiveness hug?

Can you at least tell me WHY you gave me the journal to begin with? It's 'B Follows A' that I was going to go straight to Princess Celestia for answers. So why?

You didn't like things being 'swept under the rug' either, and you wanted Minty and Starlight Angel and all their friends to be remembered? I guess I did become the spark that got everything moving after that.

(Interviewer's Notes (Unicorn): A promise is a promise, and I do suppose that foreshadowing is a storyteller’s promise to her audience. To make a promise like that with no plan to pay it off would be poor storytelling indeed, and this is quite the story of you and your friends that we've written down.)

So... you would have told me sooner if not for Chrysalis' invasion, or the thing Nightmare Nhilis did that none of us remember, or what happened when we read Bon Bon The First's diary... WHAT?! YOU WERE BUSY INTERVIEWING MY BROTHER?! For two whole years, while he travelled around the world? How could you do that and be here in Ponyville too?! You have a lot of explaining to do!

(Interviewer's Notes (Unicorn): Yes, Twilight Sparkle, and as promised, we will give you your answers.)

It’s funny, I only just now realized... the ponies that Kimono said were erased? They’re all working in Pinkie Pie's Park now! No, not just now... they’ve always been here. I saw them around Ponyville, as far back as the earliest days I was living here, but... I remember being so sad to read about them all getting erased... Ugh! My head hurts! What is this?!

(Interviewer's Notes (Unicorn): And that you're even able to NOTICE THAT is proof that you've grown in ways that are not just intellectual. You're already growing in ways that Starswirl the Bearded was never able to.)

Please... no more riddles.

(Interviewer's Notes (Unicorn): I meant that as sincere praise. You really are something special, Twilight Sparkle, the way your mind and spirit have grown. Even not able to remember a thing, you realized something was odd from sheer logic of deduction. You see, when the broken world made by Nightmare Nhilis was repaired, the Age of Dreams ponies were slipped in to fill the cracks. Apple Bloom saw it as an unfairness that deserved to be addressed, and none disagreed. Not even Entropy.)

Huh... you think I'd be jumping for joy from hearing that, but... I guess I've just been overwhelmed with everything I've learned, everything I've seen, everything I've discovered lately. I hope I can still enjoy the plot twists in the latest Daring Do book. I guess I just feel relieved. I imagine Pinkie Pie must be so happy... It's wonderful that they were able to find a new home... Maybe I'll visit when they do their next stage show this month.

(Interviewer's Notes (Unicorn): And now we have a promise to fulfill. We will tell you who we are really.)

One Revelation Later

HAHAHAHAHH! HA-HA-HA-HA!! HAHAHAH! HAHAHAAAAAAAH! Excuse me while I wipe the tears from my eyes! HEHEHEHH!

(Interviewer's Notes (Dawn): Do you think she's going to stop rolling around the floor on her back any time soon?)

(Interviewer's Notes (Dusk): Give her time.)

HAHAHAAHA!... That... Okay, okay. I'm ready now. You can tell me your real identities now. I mean, the whole 'you from the future' thing, I mean, I MET myself from the future once, so I know that can happen. But... Seriously, that's-that's just too much, hehehehe.

(Interviewer's Private Notes (Noon): Should we have told her about Shining Armor?)

(Interviewer's Private Notes (Dusk): She asked who we are. She didn't ask a thing about her brother, and nothing we said was untrue. Besides, she technically already knows that Shining Armor is our brother too.)

You're my foals from the future in another universe? Making sure that our universe turns out okay, because Discord was supposed to win and start another thousand year reign of chaos, but your mom sacrificed herself to prevent it?

Heh, good one! You really had me going there... Okay, I'm ready to hear your real origin now!

...

Why are you looking at me like that?

...

You... you were.... you were actually... Seriously?!

THUMP!

(Interviewer's Notes (Dawn): She fainted... )

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): The more things change, the more things stay the same!)

(Interviewer's Notes (Dawn): Do we let her wake up and think it was all a dream?)

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): NO!)

(Interviewer's Notes (Dawn): Okay… )

One short nap later, followed by some nice relaxing tea...

Okay... okay, I'm better now... I'm okay... you... really came here to help... Give me a minute more to stop shaking.

You... you said you had magic to travel up and down events while not being truly physically there... but somehow you still got brainwashed by Princess Gaia and Queen Chrysalis?

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): Only Dusk got caught by Chrysalis.)

(Interviewer's Notes (Dusk): I underestimated her. Since she didn't have the Elder Horn or the overwhelming dark magic of a Nightmare, I thought I'd be safe... I was wrong.)

(Interviewer's Notes (Dawn): I’ve got scars from Discord's spirit clawing me when I tried to talk more with Diamond Tiara to get her to stop from releasing him.)

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): Don’t forget, Fluttercruel broke my nose. We're real enough to those we're interacting with.)

I... I see. So, Pinkie Pie's forty-nine clones... I remember being told they came from the Heart World? We saw them on the other side of that portal, the one Discord made. Are they okay?

(Interviewer's Notes (Dusk): Yes, they are, I promise. They were never harmed.)

That's a relief... It's scary, thinking about what Discord said back then. I’m starting to think he was right. There's no limit to what you'll do to somepony if you don't think they're a person.

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): Don't worry. Lots of stuff happens because it went past the point of no return a long time ago, but there's plenty of other stuff that happens because of a turn of the needle. That probably doesn't make much sense, does it? Look, just… don’t stress over it. Worrying only makes it worse. That's a lesson you might have skipped thanks to how things have gone... but seriously, don't worry. Your life still has plenty of stuff for you to think about ahead.)

Heh, why am I not surprised? … Can you at least tell me, what was she like? The me that was your mother, I mean?

(Interviewer's Notes (Dusk): She sacrificed herself to ensure a world where everypony could find a happier ending. Do you even have to ask?)

I guess not… That’s a version of me that I can be proud of.

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): She really was.)

I hope I can be half the pony she was. So, you really can't come back to this world?

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): We may have slightly skirted the rules in one or two places by coming here in the first place. So yeah... Crossing into other worlds is serious business. Remember that.)

I will remember that.

And... I'll miss you.

(Interviewer's Notes (Dawn): I'll miss you too... Mama.)

You’ve got me blushing again. So do you really have to leave right now?

(Interviewer's Notes (Noon): We actually should have left quite a while ago... So yeah.)

Alright. I wish we could have had more time together.

(Interviewer's Notes (Dusk): We've already had more time together than was ever intended, Twilight Sparkle, more than you can possibly conceive. It's time for this chapter to close, and for you to move forward. Besides, we have a baby sister waiting for us!)

Well... give Half-Light Midnight my love, then!

(Interviewer's Notes (Dawn): We will! Goodbye! And good luck!)

Thank you... and good luck to... you?

-

Twilight Sparkle realized she was alone in the library.

"Hey, Twilight,” said Spike, coming in through the front door. “It's party time! You ready?"

Twilight hugged Spike tightly.

"Twilight? Um, are you okay?"

Twilight didn't answer at first. "Just... thinking about everything that's happened lately, and how many times we came close to losing everything."

"HEY! Enough with looking backwards! Let's look forwards! And that means less talk, more party!"

"... You're right, Spike. Come on, a day of fun sounds like just what the doctor ordered."

+++

Scootaloo had earned her cutie mark when she learned to fly, rescued Sweetie Belle, and carried her friend to safety, outmaneuvering both the changeling guards and Chrysalis herself.

Sweetie Belle had earned hers by singing at the reception for the royal wedding, thanks to a conspiracy by Silver Spoon and Spike.

And Apple Bloom had apparently earned hers in her sleep after getting an earring from Zecora. It wasn’t unheard of… Many a pony had come to some life-changing realization in a dream, especially when Princess Luna lent a helping hoof.

Somehow, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle had gotten matching red and green shields in their own cutie marks at the same time Apple Bloom got hers. That was more worrisome, but after a few weeks of careful observation, Miss Cheerilee had recommended that it officially be considered harmless, and not a sign of mental instability.

And that meant there was only one thing left to do!

”SQUEEEEE!” Pinkie Pie leapt for joy, clapping her forehooves. "Cat Tribe, I think I'll need your help for that party. Mind coming back when Apple Bloom earns her Cutie Mark?"

The little cats saluted their future goddess with a nod. "Mew mew!" 'Gladly!'


Triple cute-ceañera!

The preparations had taken a while. In fact, they lasted exactly as long as it took for the final battle with Discord and Nightmare Nhilis to happen and the dust to settle!

Twilight Sparkle couldn't shake the feeling... not that things had been rushed, but more like years worth of adventures and growth had been squeezed into one year and things had snapped forward like a taut rubber band. Truly, it was a wonder they didn't all go crazy. Oh right, she’d said it herself… all of the ponies in this town were crazy. Guess that meant her too, now!

On second thought, nopony in Ponyville was insane... weird, strange, odd, bizarre nudists, granted, but not crazy. They'd beaten back the crazy! In some cases literally, as her battle with Loneliness, Pinkie's with Angry Pie, and the Crusaders' with Discord's insanity could attest! This wasn't just a celebration for the Cutie Mark Crusaders, this was for Ponyville itself.

The scale of the celebration probably would have tested even Pinkie Diane’s ability to pull party supplies out of thin air. Fortunately for her and all her extra little furry helpers, the 'Cutie Mark Celebration Charity' had mysteriously refounded itself to give an even bigger donation to her party fund than it had before! Dr. Whooves had provided more ice cream too; he still had a hangar or two left of the stuff from his visit to the Planet of Ice Cream, after all.

Ponies were even more surprised when DIAMOND TIARA finally returned home, in fragile condition but alive and well, and requested her father make his own generous donation to the festivities. Thankfully, given Filthy's reputation, it wasn't seen as a publicity stunt.

The rumors around Diamond Tiara were all over the place, with some ponies claiming that she’d been foalnapped by minotaurs, or Manehatten gangsters, or griffon outlaws, or an evil wizard… the tale seemed to grow more outlandish each time it was told. Others had claimed that she had fallen into another world and lived a whole other life having strange adventures, only to return not a day older.

Most of the rumors could be safely ignored, but that mysterious dark shadow of her attacking Ponyville, which had been fought off by Zecora and Cupcake, took a little more explanation. Thankfully most had not recognized her, though some attending changelings had to verify she wasn't a changeling herself when she told everyone loudly and plainly that she was just happy to be home and didn’t want any special attention.

The army of cute little kitties wearing hard hats and overalls had been a sight to see throughout Ponyville for a while now, and after tireless construction and preparations, the cute-ceañera was finally ready! The kitties themselves would have taken part happily if they hadn't been exhausted and sprawled everywhere taking cat naps!

Pinkie Diane assured all ponies allergic to cats that they had worn gloves (or at least they had now, thanks to Apple Bloom), and hadn't licked anything. Pinkie made a mental note that if she ever became their potential Goddess, she’d make sure they were hypoallergenic. Her potential high priest had explained that the majority of the cat tribes still living in Abyssinia worshipped the goddess Bastet as their creator, with the Wuv Cats considered an 'offshoot.'

The list of guests was huge, since the three fillies had made many friends, and that wasn't counting their families! They'd even gotten a permit from city hall to redirect hoof traffic to make room for this epic occasion.

While, in light of recent events, some might have requested extra security for such an event, Pinkie pointed out how many present had previously been involved in world saving (or world conquering, in the case of the changelings) and the party planners had been the cavalry against an invading army. They didn't need extra security, they WERE the security. While Rarity was no longer babying Sweetie Belle, she still insisted Sweetie keep something that would help her detect changelings, since any unreformed changelings in hiding would surely want revenge on her. The openly attending changelings did not object; in fact, they declared that Sweetie had been kind to them even while under Chrysalis’s mentoring, and Princess Pitcher Plant's loyalists would have to go through them to get at her if she ever crept out of that old castle of her mother's.

Trixie had naturally exploded on stage, showcasing her extraordinary talent for fireworks and colored smoke and her over-the-top illusions. Trixie gave this show her all, not in small part because she had been given a generous commission. (What? It was how Trixie paid for her groceries, after all.)

But that aside, Trixie had to swallow her pride, since her magic show was only a part of the celebration, and not the main attraction. Many of the partygoers were more interested in each other, or the food, or grooving to the music. At events like these, Trixie reminded herself that she was in good company. If the original Shakesponian actors could endure being a mere sideshow, then so could Trixie!

If nothing else, Trixie was proud of how much she had improved as a performer since her first show in Ponyville, unfortunate public spats with the town’s local heroes aside. Her number one and number two fans (and source of her first humiliation) still applauded enthusiastically when she was done. Against all odds, Snips and Snails paid perfect attention through her whole magic act.

Marcie Pan and Fawn Doo, meanwhile, were surprised. They had NEVER been commissioned before. True, one of the conditions was that they were NOT to sell any of their signature super-addictive Phenomnomenons treats at the event, but money was money, and being part of the catering for this celebration with so many VIPs was sure to build up their reputation.

Bon Bon was less than pleased that out-of-towners had been commissioned to supply some of the treats for this party… she wouldn’t have minded so much, losing to Sugarcube Corner. At least this meant that she and her family could enjoy the celebration instead! June Bug and Moth were the most drunk-off-love changelings there.

While the Apples and Belles had never been enemies, they had never been exactly close the way the Apples had been with the Hearts and the Riches, but that didn't mean the current generation wasn't going to change that!

Pinkie Pie had made extra sure that no hard cider or salt licks were anywhere near this celebration. It was for foals after all, and while an epic drunken brawl between the Apples and Belles might have been amusing slapstick for some, it wasn't appropriate for this happy day.

Berry Punch was proud of herself for being dry, and Cheerilee and Ruby Pinch were even more proud of her for it.

That said, the other changelings in attendance had to actively try not to get drunk from the amount of love present.

Speaking of which, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle were going through systematic hugs and well-wishes from their families, with Rarity, Applejack, Big Mac, Granny Smith, Daisy Belle/Cookie Crumble and her husband, all eager to show their appreciation. True, it had happened days ago now for Apple Bloom, and longer ago for Sweetie and Scootaloo, but this was the time to celebrate!

"Apple Bloom, my little friend," Zecora said, smiling down at the filly who had gone out of her way to befriend the zebra when Ponyville feared Zecora. "While this is a new beginning and not an end, I feel like thinking back on it is in order. You have come so far since you first crossed Everfree's border. From the filly who helped make an antidote in my hut, to the one who closed a dark chapter of this world’s history shut. You have come such a long way, and your friend I am proud to stay. This I say true: I am so proud of you."

Apple Bloom didn't hesitate to hug her, and Zecora happily returned the hug of her alchemy student.

* * * * *

"You going to ask Zecora for the other earring?" Sweetie Belle casually asked Apple Bloom, a wee bit later.

"Not really, Ah like it as is."

"You know, that earring makes you looks like a gypsy."

"And what's wrong with that?" Apple Bloom smirked. "If Ah started wearing, say, neck-rings, Zecora would know Ah was doing it 'cause Ah admire her!"

“What about you, Sweetie?” said Scootaloo, smirking. "You ever gonna do something different with your look?"

Sweetie glanced at Apple Bloom's earring and Scootaloo's braid. "Nope! I like how I look now, thank you very much."

Both of her best friends hugged her at once.

Speaking of changes of appearance, the trio noticed that Carrot Top's mane was still back to its original green when Noi came up to congratulate them.

Derpy accompanied Dinky and Derby over for her congratulations… and the mother took a moment to smile down at Apple Bloom. "Bank you for saving… blue know…"

Apple Bloom blinked… then recalled something she'd done while omnipotent involving a group of duplicates in need of a new universe. "... Yer welcome, Miss Derpy. It was just the right thing to do."

"And pour… blue know…"

They looked over at Derpy's baby brother, and Apple Bloom grinned. "Yer welcome."

Scootaloo raised an eyebrow at that. "Something else you did while you were a god?"

Apple Bloom hushed her friend, then leaned closer, voice lowered. "One, Ah weren't a god. And two... yeah. Ah'd tell yah more, but even Ah don't remember all of it." She smiled. "Let's just say, there's some ponies who got a chance tah have their own lives and she got a bigger family outta it."

Scootaloo blinked. "Um, how does Derpy remember that?"

"That's a long story, but not important right now," said Dr. Whooves cheerfully, as he joined Derpy and her family. "You girls have come a long way since I caught you stealing Flux Capacitors from my junk heap and breaking the laws of time. You were fantastic, keep it up. The world-saving, not the other thing!"

The Crusaders shared knowing grins. "Thanks, Doc!"

Meanwhile, Sparkler/Amethyst Star was just enjoying the free food and seeing her sister and uncle happy. She'd had enough space and time nonsense from her time with Doc, and living in Ponyville hadn’t helped her get away from potential world-ending catastrophes at all. She just wanted to relax and have fun for one afternoon. A surprising number of other ponies were in the same boat.

Shady Daze, his little sister, and her best friend all gave their congratulations as well, as did all their classmates… especially Twist, who made sure to give a big hug, whilst being accompanied by Truffle right alongside her.

There wasn’t a single foal in Ponyville who wasn’t having fun at the celebration somewhere! First Base and Archer got into a cupcake-eating contest with each other. Ruby Pinch was mixing the various soda pops into any number of enticing combinations, eager to test them all herself. Lickety-Split was trying to outdo her with creating the perfect sundae. Rumble was happy to be the taste tester.

Cloud Kicker and Thunderlane enjoyed the party together, just being friends. No world is perfect, but at least between the two of them, they could have comfort in knowing the other didn't think they were 'loose'.

Speedy Delivery/Post Haste? He was just happy that he could attend, instead of rushing off to his next delivery! (Pinkie Pie had sent him a whole mailbag full of apology notes for not remembering his birthday.)

"Sweetie Belle, darling,” said Rarity, wearing a vapid and empty smile. “That nice young colt is here to see you again. You remember Prince Love Blood, don't you?"

A pale bat-pony colt with piercing red and silver eyes, obvious fangs, and a slicked-back mane approached. His cutie mark was a smiling heart with fangs. "It's been too long since we had a moment to ourselves, my beloved Sweetie,” he purred. “We worked so hard to save the world together, after all."

Sweetie Belle gasped, her heart racing. “Love Blood, you came back! After you were disintegrated into another dimension, I thought I’d never see you again!” She sprang into a gallop, ready to charge into her coltfriend’s embrace...

Without warning, an ominous snarl filled the air, seeming to leech away the very colors around them. “What?!” cried Love Blood, looking all around in a panic. “No, you can’t… NO!” He turned to flee…

Something huge and dark and furry sprang, rushing past Sweetie Belle…

Rarity paused in mid-stride, wondering what she’d been doing just now, but she quickly shrugged it off and left to refill her punch glass.

Sweetie blinked at the party, which was lively and colorful once again. "Blanky?" she whispered. She looked left and right and all around, but she didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. Still, she smiled. “Thank you!”

With or without hard cider, Mjolnir shouted, holding her tankard aloft. "Victory be ours, friends! Eat, drink, and be merry!"

"Do you actually know anypony here?" Silver Spanner asked, appreciating the multi-colored lighting equipment she'd worked on.

"Verily, I know thee!"

"Should have seen that one coming."

"Besides, this be Ponyville! Has that ever been a problem before?"

"Eh, point taken."

Mjolnir took a long draught from her tankard, then slammed it down on the table. "Another! Whilst I wait, let me tell you about the time I aided yonder fillies in battling an army of darkness from the beyond!"

"... Sure you did."

At her DJ station, Vinyl Scratch flipped a record off the turntable and spun it on her hoof while reaching for the next album. "Disappointed I got this jig, Tavi'?"

"Not in the least,” Octavia said, sipping a cup of punch. “There's a time and place for all music, and your music is just the thing for this occasion with little foals."

In spite of being a gifted unicorn with a talent for music, Lyra had likewise agreed, DJ PON-3 was definitely the right choice of musician here.

Aloe and Lotus couldn't attend, since they needed to keep the spa open for messy ponies coming through, but Pinkie Pie and Rarity had promised to bring them cake later.

There were many movers and shakers in Ponyville and Canterlot who could have attended, Mayor Mare included, but they refrained, not wanting to overshadow three fillies who had worked so hard for this special day, their moment in the sun. They made sure to send cards, however.

Cranky would have cheerfully stayed home, if not for Matilda dragging him to the party for the sake of some socialization. A triple cute-ceañera was like nothing that either donkey had seen in their long lives.

"Apple Bloom…"

Apple Bloom blinked, her gaze wandering towards the forest and finding a familiar pair of eyes looking back at her from the edge, like she was looking through binoculars.

"Ruby?" Apple Bloom whispered.

"...You deserve to have a happy day today," the ghost said, and somehow Apple Bloom could hear her clearly despite the distance. She showed no sign of envy for Apple Bloom, despite how her own 'special day' had gone. Ruby of Sunnytown only gave her a smile.

The young farmpony gasped as she saw another figure at Ruby's side. "Mitta? But… but how?"

"The one who put the curse on us originally decided to make an exception on the 'can't leave the area' rule, just this once…" Mitta replied, a smile on her face as well. Of course, since it was the middle of the day, the undead ponies looked perfectly normal. "Congratulations, Apple Bloom… have a good day."

Apple Bloom smiled back. "Thank yah…" she whispered. She wondered if maybe that talent for fixing anything including hearts might be able to fix a certain town.

"And thank you." Apple Bloom turned around to see a jade-haired pegasus filly, who was coincidentally also named Jade. "If not for you, I wouldn't be here either."

Apple Bloom was startled to remember that this filly (like Apple Byte) hadn’t existed before… she’d only been part of the rumors and legends surrounding Sunny Town.

Pipsqueak was enjoying the festivities with his “crew,” a temporary wooden stage built for the party substituting for their “mighty pirate ship” in Pip's backyard. "Great party, isn't it, Moonlight?"

"Indeed…" said Moonlight with a smile, looking to the Crusaders. She leaned and whispered something in her “captain's” ear.

"Blimey, that’s a great idea!" exclaimed Pipsqueak. He spotted the ones this party was for in the crowd. "Hey! Cutie Mark Crusaders!"

"Yeah, Pip?" asked Scootaloo.

Pipsqueak suddenly pretended to be at the helm of a ship. "Since this is your special day, how would you like to be honorary temporary crewmates of the MoonPearl, just for today?"

The Crusaders blinked, looked to each other... and instantly rushed over and climbed aboard. They all remembered voyaging on the MoonPearl... being rescued from the villains' booby trap only because of her and her crew, being on her decks, sleeping, chatting, fighting monsters, blasting the mother of all monsters, watching Diamond Tiara protect Tootsie, and finally having to abandon ship as the MoonPearl fell apart and sank.

It was a little haunting to be on the imaginary privateer ship after seeing the real one destroyed. Wait, the MoonPearl was imaginary, so didn't that make the pretend one the real one? This made their heads hurt.

Button Mash watched for a moment... and slowly put his Gamecolt down and joined them, much to his mother's delight. Sweetie Belle giggled and hugged Button before the two went adventuring in Pipsqueak's imaginary roleplaying world, scrambling to load and aim the ship’s cannons and fire off spells to repel a giant sea monster. His beanie’s propeller spun as if in a mighty sea breeze, as tireless as its owner! 8-Bit was likewise proud of his son, already feeling inspiration for his next game design.

"I got it! It's here!" shouted an earth pony who resembled an older, teenaged Button Mash. 16-bit, like the 16-bit character sprite that was his cutie mark, unloaded a shiny new arcade game from a cart: 'Ogres and Oubliettes: Mysteria Reborn!'

Astonishingly, Button Mash didn’t immediately abandon ship to be the first to play the new game. Instead, Archer, Rumble, First Base, and another orange colt with a purple mane surrounded the video game, jamming their bits into the coin slot and grabbing the four joysticks to begin their epic quest to defeat the lich squidizzard. The fourth foal tenderly tapped his rear hooves as he played. If Apple Bloom had bothered to look in his direction, she might have thought it was cute.

"Well, I'll be,” mused 16-bit, watching his little brother having fun in a fantasy world that didn't need electronics. “Way to go, Button!” Maybe Button would finally play with his old train set again too!

"Hey, shield flanks!" came a familiar voice, but this time the Crusaders didn't cringe at the sound.

"Diamond Tiara!" the foals of the hour said together, rushing to greet the filly, still confined to her wheelchair. (She could stand, but walking was another matter.)

Scootaloo grinned. "Welcome to the party!"

"Happy to see you!" Sweetie Belle said with a nuzzle.

"Glad ya could make it."

"It's my pleasure." Diamond Tiara smirked.

"Hey, girls," Silver Spoon said from behind them. She’d been pushing Diamond Tiara's wheelchair herself, when either of them could have summoned a servant pony to do it.

"Hey, Silver!" called the trio, waving to their fellow Crusader.

Alula and Tootsie flanked Diamond Tiara on either side, having let their families go on ahead, so they could show up when Diamond Tiara did to keep her company. It didn't feel right to leave her in the dust.

Neatly Spell could have attended... but she didn't know the Crusaders, and it felt wrong for Diamond Tiara to crowd this place with HER friends. She knew what it was like to be upstaged on your special day.

A camera flash announced Featherweight's ninja-like arrival. That colt was going to need it explained to him sooner or later that a lot of ponies didn't like their picture being taken without permission, but at least they didn’t have to worry about his pictures showing up in a tabloid.

Button and Featherweight shared a look, then smiled and gave each other a hoof bump. Diamond looked away from them for a moment... before both looked to her with a smile.

Diamond had seen it enough times to know what it meant by now: 'We forgive you, let's just be friends.' She just returned the smile. Silver didn't understand any of what just happened, but she was glad Diamond seemed to be off to a better start making friends this time.

"Um, Diamond?" asked Silver. "You know, about that thing…"

Featherweight and Button both looked to her. "We know… long story," Button said, while Featherweight just nodded.

"We don't, but we know where she's going with this," said Alula, trying to just roll with it.

"Oh… Well, from when you were in my dreams…"

Diamond sighed. "Yeah…" she said, and then she looked to the Crusaders. "...T-Thank y-you."

The trio's jaws dropped.

"Silver would've been by my side no matter what... but you made sure she was there in a way that... didn't get her in trouble... T-Thank y-you…"

"Yeah, thanks… seriously," Silver replied. "I wouldn't have been able to help her otherwise."

The trio flashed big grins at her. "Welcome!"

"Now come on, that’s enough serious stuff!” said Scootaloo. “I think it's about time for us to just be FOALS!"

Sweetie Belle kissed Button Mash on the muzzle. His beanie spun up so fast it lifted off his head and flew until it hit the ceiling.

'It's funny,” Apple Bloom mused to herself, “we've been so distracted since we all got our cutie marks... but now we gotta actually figure out what to do with 'em. Ah wonder how many ponies there are that need help findin' or acceptin' their true selves... Eh, Ah'll chat with the girls 'bout it later. Play time!'

"So, Diamond Tiara..." asked ‘Acting Student Pony President’ Alula with a smile. "You going to run for class president again?"

Diamond Tiara gave her a grin. "You know it!"

A while later, Scootaloo was nudging her way through the crowd towards Miss Cheerilee. Her teacher seemed distracted.

Now that Dash was officially her guardian, Scootaloo no longer had to fear somepony discovering her absent parents and hoofing her over to foal services. Dash had even promised to come to her family appreciation day at school next year! She wasn't the only family Scootaloo had that wasn't related by blood, though.

"Miss Cheerilee?"

"Hmm? Oh! Yes, Scootaloo?"

"There’s something I want you to know. You know, in case I said it before and forgot, or in case you ever forget... that if I could do everything over... I would have loved having you for a big sister too."

Cheerilee blushed. "Scootaloo, that's very... I’m flattered, dear. If you need somewhere to be, sometime, or somepony to listen, I promise I'll be there."

Barely understanding why herself, Cheerilee hugged the little filly in a way that was deeper than teacher and student. She would be surprised when the Dream Park Ponies would also refer to them as sisters once she visited the place with Scootaloo some days later, convincing herself that they were just being playful. But still... she didn't mind it. After all, she and her sisters were too close in age for either to be her little sister, even if Cheerilee felt like her twin Cherry Blossom played the bossy older sister sometimes.

She had no intention of going back to those silly pigtails she wore when she was younger, that the dream park ponies somehow also seemed to know about... But she could appreciate letting herself just pretend for one afternoon. And... why did being Scootaloo's protector for a day feel so… right?

'Family isn't just about blood, it's about the heart too,' Cheerilee thought.

Apple Bloom didn't want to break up the heartfelt moment, but there was something she needed to do. Something she had to do. Diamond Tiara had told her about it. Apple Bloom had shivered at what Nightmare Nhilis had done, but Diamond Tiara was right, they were past apologies and saying how sorry they were for this and that now. It was time to do something about it.

For one moment, Apple Bloom felt... her own presence? No, that was impossible. She'd not been able to affect anything in the future, beyond the time of the final battle. If she did anything, it would be her own choice, and no pony else's.

But Apple Bloom DID faintly remember possibilities, ways that the future could go. Did she dare disrupt the world? After what Nightmare Nhilis did, Apple Bloom had a responsibility. But did she have a right to fix what wasn't broken?

Apple Bloom breathed in deep and slowly let it out. 'Whatever happens, this is the future we made.'

She waited for that one moment, where Big Mac looked like he was thinking about leaving the party early to avoid awkward conversation, and Cheerilee happened to glance at him. Apple Bloom tapped her teacher on the leg, and Cheerilee looked down at her.

"Diamond Tiara told me about that mean thing Nightmare Nhilis said when you faced her, and well, Ah’ve got something to say about that! Ah reckon you should make yer own fate, Miss Cheerilee. Success and failure ain't written in stone, and that’s the Truth." Apple Bloom said these words with a sincerity that surprised even her teacher.

Cheerilee looked at Big Mac again, and seemed to make a decision. She trotted over to Big Mac and tapped him politely on the shoulder. He smiled, starting to greet her, and she surprised him by kissing him on the lips. For a few moments, there was genuine surprise in his eyes, doubt, fear... but then Big Mac took his own chance, and kissed her back.

Lovestruck watched from the spirit world. Someday, little Fluttercruel would figure out that part of being a Demi-Goddess, but for now she mostly had the spirit world to herself around Ponyville besides the normal 'things'. She lowered the hoof holding her bow and happily unrolled the scroll with her list of names. "Well, that settles that!" she said, putting a check mark next to the pair of Big Macintosh and Cheerilee.

She crossed out the pairing of Big Mac and Sugar Belle, well at least as his 'first love' at least, and Fluttershy and Big Mac (Cheerilee's boldness had won out and Fluttershy would never make a move after that, if she'd ever been attracted at all)... but she stopped at the next pairing, merely putting a question mark. "For now, anyway…"

Far away, Marble Pie saw the pairing stone quiver as she touched it on an unconscious urge. She knew what this meant, even if she'd never seen it...

'Whoever you are,’ she thought with a determined smile, ‘if you haven't married him by the time I meet him, I promise, I won't lose without a fight, and good luck to us both, mmm-hmm!'

Scootaloo casually hovered nearby, almost wishing she had a little heart bow or something to wave at the new couple. 'Then again, maybe a nudge doesn't mean rammed by steam train,' she thought to herself. She hoped that she and her friends hadn't lost all their love of risk-taking and trying new things now that they had their cutie marks.  New experiences were always fun!

Scootaloo smiled. Rainbow Dash landed next to her and put a wing over her shoulder, not quite getting what was on between the filly and her teacher, but knew that Scootaloo was happy for her. Rainbow Dash wondered how AJ was going to react to this!

'All in all,' Scootaloo thought, 'this turned out to be a super fun and super great and super cool and super wonderful cute-ceañera. I actually can't think of anything that would make it any more awesome.' "I'm free."

The doors to Sugar Cube Corner squeaked open behind her. Scootaloo didn't really pay it any mind. It was Sugar Cube Corner during a huge party, hardly unexpected for somepony to come in.

"Scootaloo?" said a stallion's voice. Scootaloo's heart skipped a beat.

"My little horsefly, is that really you?" said a mare's voice.

Scootaloo's body didn't so much as twitch, but shock, surprise, and joy exploded inside her still form. She felt Rainbow Dash's wing close tighter around her, but she didn't notice. With an open, pure smile, and her eyes sparkling, Scootaloo turned around.

"Mom? Dad?"

True Epilogue

One Thousand Years Later (Or it might have been longer... there are more numbers in the universe than a thousand, after all)

"And that's where it ends,” announced Discord, casually levitating an insanely huge four-hundred and thirty-four chapter book. “I hope somepony else wrote the rest down somewhere." He closed the book with a flick of his claw. The front cover read 'Point of View of Ponies of Ponyville Series, as chronicled by the Half-Light Sisters,' and it was a wonder that the whole thing fit indoors, to say nothing of the reference and side-story volumes.  

“‘Bout time,” said Princess Veritas. "Reading that took dang forever, figuratively speaking of course."

"Yes, but it was most definitely worth it, darling," Princess Lucia said, nuzzling the great purple and green-scaled ryujin who was bigger than her and her chaise longue together, at his most humble size. They wore matching golden bands, her on her forehoof, and him on a foreclaw.

Master Kenbroath Gilspotten Heathspike snorted, but returned the nuzzle, rumbling warmly. "If you ask me, a lot of it was gratuitous.” His ryujin name was Avaritius Volo Asgorath, and he was on equal standing with the other ruling ryujin… Dragon Queen Alexandra (not to be confused with Queen Mother Tiamat), Dragon Lord Ember, and Dragon Protectorate Mina... but that was a story for another day. “And that squeaky voice Discord used for my parts didn’t sound anything like me!”

"Well, I think you did a wonderful job reading it, sweetie," said Princess Thalia. She still had a few scratch scars on her body from her first encounter with Bastet.

"Why, thank you, mother!" Discord said, with a politeness that barely contained the wild theatrical soul within.

"It was nice to just sit back and just listen to all of it beginning to end, wasn't it?" Princess Gaia said to her... mother-in-law. They were especially happy to have Princess Gaia present, given that she was often in space terraforming planets and only just returned from a joint project with the Celestial Ponies.

Princess Fidelitas yawned profusely, stretching her wings. "Ugh, did we have to take so many breaks? I prefer reading this stuff all in one go!"

“Not everyone wants to rush straight to the end,” said Princess Amicitia, chiding her mildly. "This way, we could all stay on the same page and appreciate it together!”

The equilibrium of Alicorns was sitting in the great hall of the Crystal Friendship Castle. They could have used Princess Gaia's castle (formerly the castle of the Two Sisters, but she hardly spent any time there) or Applejack's humble 'castle' (more often called the House of Truths, since her sister and brother held court there as well) but this castle held many good memories.

"Eh, I'll stick with the Enchanted Comics version!" said Fluttercruel, twisting her floating body in a figure eight symbol.

Besides the Alicorn Princesses, and one Dragon God and demi-draconequus, the hall held thousands of other rare books even though it wasn’t the main castle library, each one shelved precisely in its proper place… all except for an old worn volume laying on a coffee table, titled 'How To Fake Old Age and Your Own Funeral.' Had they ever made use of the advice found in its pages? Who knew?

While they were still technically princesses, Alicornification had become more commonplace, and with ponies spreading far and wide and even reaching out to the stars, the title of Princess had become almost a formality, no more extraordinary than ‘doctor’ or ‘mayor.’ Just like having the surname ‘Equestria.’

Draconequi remained a much more exclusive club, but there had been a few new ones. Flim and Flam had become Kitsun and Reynard, the twin draconequi of temptation, nicknamed 'the two faced god'. They were the first and only mortals known to ever con their way into Discord's family, claiming the abandoned concept for themselves and succeeding the original Temptation, who met her end in that ancient war.

The number of new Alicorns over the eons was actually so large that Princess Amicitia suspected many of them of being mortal Alicorns who took whatever outlandish title they could think of that wasn’t claimed yet, not true pillars of creation. Regardless, all of them had a role to play in this civilization, both mortal and divine.

Button Mash was now Isthmia, Alicorn Prince of Games. As Neighponese Animane could tell you, that was not a position to be taken lightly.

His wife was Princess Euterpe, Concept of Music or at least Song. There was a bit of a gray area, especially given Sweetie Belle's spiritual heritage.

Scootaloo had become Princess Faventia, the Divine Longma (existing as a bridge between Celestia and Tiamat's families), Concept of Grace and goddess of the Tianma. How that happened was another story unto itself.

Apple Bloom, after being a late bloomer and then a reality-mending Architect, had become Princess Praegressus, Concept of Progress and Invention. She had been the most happy when the curse had finally been lifted from the last of the Sunny Town ponies, allowing Ruby to finally rest in peace as well. She'd been vital to Equus’ defense during the war with the Earthbound Kings.

Diamond Tiara's Alicorn name was currently 'sealed', but Amicitia thought that had more to do with her wanting to stand out from the crowd and seem mysterious. Then again, she was part of Discord's pantheon, not Celestia's. She'd fought a sociopathic filly named Cozy Glow whose soul held a dark secret. Much like what Rarity had done to Morning Star's concept of beauty, Cozy Glow had usurped Diamond Tiara's sealed magic and maybe divine essence, and maybe her Alicorn name, until Diamond Tiara finally embraced her magic as part of herself at last, taking back what was hers, and herself.

Then there was Princess Amicitia's husband... formerly Flash Sentry, now Prince Philippides Prostátis, the Concept of help coming at the moment it is needed most, or if one wanted to be more precise, he was the Concept of Heroes... which meant he was the concept of heroes both for good and bad sides in conflicts. He also had a scar along his side from an encounter with one of Nythy's last remaining avatars, a dark being called Alfred Hitchhoof. By their very nature, heroes were forever linked to tragedies, from Batmare to Superstallion.

Doctor Whooves, much to his own surprise, had become Khronos, Alicorn Prince of Time. Also called Prince Medicum Esse Gallopfrey. Perhaps ‘surprise’ wasn't quite the right word. At least he and Rota Fortuna got along better now. "Come now, if I was going to be any Alicorn, what else would I have been Alicorn of?!"

Derpy had become Princess Patientia, the goddess of mothers, perseverance… and also Mailmares, which turned out to make her rival King Leo in being an unstoppable force. Leo’s wife Novo and daughter Skystar were happy to be together at last, even if none could ever truly tame the sea that was his and himself.

Vinyl Scratch and Octavia shared a portfolio with Princess Euterpe, as the Alicorns Princess Meret and... well, Octavia claimed her Alicorn name was 'Princess Euterpe' too... so it led to some confusion for the gods of different aspects of music. There were only so many fancy-sounding words for music in Old Ponish.

Zecora was now Princess Alchimia, the Zebralicorn (or Virgalicorn) of Alchemy. She tended to exact a ruthless, but ultimately fair cost for any who sought knowledge or power from her.

Kifuko, Flurry Heart, and Skyla, the daughters of Cadenza, had become their own cloister of goddesses.

Their father was Prince Fortis Castellum... but he was still Big Brother Shining Armor to Amicitia. There was a rumor going around that he had died first before coming back as an Alicorn, since Fate had decreed Cadence would outlive 'Shining Armor.'

Fizzlepop Berrytwist had achieved the dream she believed impossible due to her injury, and was now Princess Gilia, the Alicorn of Overcoming Disabilities.

Iron Will had become the minotaur god Cerus... don't ask.

Garble, of all creatures, was now Calidus Complector, the ryujin of hugs. Again, don't ask. It’s said that even to this day, he refuses to explain why.

Gilda… at least, the Gilda of their branch of reality… was not with them, but Patientia occasionally delivered a postcard from the domain of Lord Boreas and Lady Astra, where heroic griffons went to their eternal roost. Princess Fidelitas treasured each one, and would only smile and say that her old friend had no regrets. As Gilda put it, 'You’re crazy, Dash. I'm not giving up my eternal retirement for a job I can never quit!'

Trixie was now Princess Anasi, who had also become the leader of the Elements of Chaos following a year long quest to find and recruit them following Twilight's epic battle with Tirek.

Starlight Glimmer, a foe of Princess Twilight who later became a friend and ally, was now Princess Libertas Renovatio Equestria, the goddess of fairness, balance, and equality. This time, she represented the true ideal, not a false, misguided one.

Fancy Pants, to no one's surprise, had become Prince Plutus, the god of wealth and prosperity.

To EVERYONE'S surprise, Blueblood had become Prince Aluluei, god of navigation.

Filthy Rich had become Prince Juno, God of Economics.

Golden Tiara, determined that none should ever suffer the fate that she had suffered, had become Princess Beiwe, the Goddess of Mental Healing. She was dreaded among any Nightmare that came into existence... If any had of course. Had they?

The Apple Family had become their own small pantheon of gods of truth:
Princess Veritas, the Honest Truth (the immovable object to Trixie/Princess Anasi's irresistible force)
Princess Praegressus, the Empirical Truth
Price Axiom (Big Mac), the Plain and Simple Truth

And more Bearers of Honesty from the Apple family (and maybe other worlds) had joined them:
Red Gala Belle, the Beauty of Truth
Nightmare Mirror, the Cruelest of Truths
Epiphany, the Moment of Truth
Deconstruction, the Truth that Changes Everything

As for Granny Smith... she'd just wanted to be reunited with her husband and son in the afterlife, thank you very much!

Moon Dancer herself had become Princess Codex Custos Prudentiae, the keeper of all books and records past and present. There was a bit of chafing between her and the Hermit Tarot that would need to be resolved...

Moth was now Siamka, the Alicorn Princess of families that went beyond genetics.

Mayor Mare… Mary Mare, Ivory Scroll... she’d used all those names over the years…  stood now as Princess Res Publica, goddess of freedom and democracy.

Cheese Sandwich, Princess Thalia's husband, was the Concept of Laughter of the Fourth Wall Breaking Variety or Something (and Polka)... Prince Ridiculum Albertus. As if he could have been anything else!

And Minty... yes, that Minty... that was yet another story for another time... She was now Ashima... Princess of… socks? Christmas? The color green? She had become the Alicorn of accepting and moving on from one's past. She and Princess Fidelitas worked closely together.

It had been Princess Ashima's idea to read the book from start to finish to begin with. She’d said, "It's needed for this world to finally and truly be free." The Six Princesses hadn't understood at the time, but maybe now they did.

"We've come a long way, haven't we?" Princess Veritas/Applejack said with a smile.

"And we earned every step," Princess Fidelitas/Rainbow Dash declared.

"The world has grown so beautiful," Princess Gaia/Fluttershy Breeze-Pie added.

"And I was happy to experience it with each and every one of you!" Princess Thalia/Pinkie Diane Pie cheered.

"It's not quite perfect yet darling... but it's getting closer every day," Princess Lucia/Rarity Belle said, doing the one thing the Concept she replaced could never bring himself to do: let the world grow.

"Even if we had to pull out a lot of thorns and stitch up a lot of wounds," Odyne Typhon/Fluttercruel Breeze added with a smirk.

"And have to protect it to keep it that way," Avaritius/Spike finished.

"I'm happy you all enjoyed the show!" Discord said. "It wasn't easy, it wasn't simple, and if I knew how long this was going to take, I'd have never started in the first place!"

"And we appreciate it, Discord... " Princess Amicitia said with a smile, before transforming into her meek unicorn guise, and giving the Draconequus a big hug. "This is the only right way to end it. We went through a lot of tests and trials, but we all became friends through them, and through our dreams, hopes and wishes, through what we had in common and what we could understand about each other... including you."

The other five goddesses, the dragon god, and the demigoddess closed in around Discord and joined in the hug.

Discord felt an extra invisible hug, and smirked knowingly… Princess Anasi, the one and only Trixie, had been present and watching this whole time, likely sending back all she experienced to Princess Liberalis and Princess Solara (Sunset Shimmer). After a moment of hesitation, Discord hugged them all back. He felt so... happy. He sighed, wiping a happy tear from his eye. "I'm free..."

"The Truth Can Be Deceiving" Applejack
Ah didn't ever lied before. Ain't now. Ain't ever!
Okay, so Ah reckon' Ah was sometimes dead wrong 'bout some things. Maybe Ah couldn't buck the entire orchard by myself. Maybe helpin' with ah tricky stunt, bakin', and herdin' bunnies what ain't the bright when Ah was half-asleep.
So Ah didn't tell Pinkie Pie 'bout her surprise birthday. But Ah didn't tell her nothin' that ain't true!

Ah don't know what we'll say ta each other. But Ah know it ain't right. If this here is where honesty leads . . . b




Four deaths in the family, dozens of friends made, dozens of friends LOST because of my own sins, so many, many, many, MANY blood, sweat and tears, to come here. After almost a year since I finished the final chapter (just two weeks before the edits were made). I finished the chapter around 2018 January 2 or 4th. 

So much... I promised my family that I'd give up fan fiction and move onto published fiction I can be paid for in an official manner after this was posted. Guys, thank you for staying till the end! *hugs* You have given me meaning. 

I can't think of how to say goodbye, *cries*, I just want you to know, that you all gave me meaning, and for me, that means a lot! *HUGS!* Thank you! All of you! This means more than you can imagine! This was perhaps my first fanfic that actually picked up with people. So much of the show has changed since then, thank you for staying with it. *hugs* 

IN THE FACE OF DEMONS AND MONSTERS INSIDE AND OUT, I GOT HERE.

"Miss Tiara, you have a visitor," Star Shine called.
"I'll see them," she said in her room. She knew Star Shine wouldn't let anypony through Diamond didn't want to see.
She looked up at the clop of hooves.
"Howdy, Diamond Tiara," said Applejack to the wheelchair-bound filly. "Ah thought ya outta know somethin'. Ya know that world where Apple Bloom was the lonely spoiled filly Discord took advantage of instead of you?"
"How'd you know about that?" Tiara hissed.
"Pinkie Pie and Ah remember the world gettin' messed up by you and Discord's cousins. And ya think Apple Bloom WOULDN'T tell me all she went through if she could? In case yah forgot, last she saw meh, Ah held off old Grim and Dark so she and her friends could save yah… Ah didn't even know if she figured out Ah won until after."
"And you still fought so hard to save me from myself."

Spoilers for Skylander Academy Season 3

In an alternate reality, a couple times removed from this one, and may a few years down the line, a single mother came home to find her daughter on the couch binging NetStable.


"And how are you dear?" On the table were figurines with computer chips inside to unlock characters in an online video game called 'Pyro’s Skyland Acadamy', including a purple dragon, and a black and silver recoloring of the same character, which Fluttershy knew was her daughter's main.

The show Fluttercruel was watching happened to be a TV adaption of the game, ironically giving the titular character more screen time than the game itself.

The young child looked like her mother, but with grayer yellow skin, and her pink hair was darker and more wild, and her eyes, Sunset had given her a pair of glasses to make her eyes appear normal in public so people stopped asking awkward questions over and over.

"Meh! You remember how I told you the writers went with something daring by turning Pyro evil at the end of the second season?"

"Yes dear." Fluttershy had listened to her daughter's long rambles about the show including plot points and myth arcs.

"Well, they kept him as Shadow Pyro for 11 episodes out of a thirteen episode third season... And as he worked undercover for the villains among his friends he was slowly learning to be good again."

"That does sound interesting dear," Fluttershy said, sitting down next to her child.

"Yeah, doesn't it? By the end he begins subtly defying his master in spite of having all the good sucked out of him! Even when the villain gives him a 'booster shot' to 'reset' him back to pure evil, he still can't kill his best friend and tries to throw away the macguffin the villain needed! Which ironically is what cause it to open! ... But then the heroes had figured out what was going on, knocked him out, and figure out a potion to 'remove the darkness'. Which splits him into his good and evil sides! But he NEVER GOT BACK his original good side! Which means the new normal Pyro was Shadow Pyro's own good side! And Shadow Pyro became a cliche baddie without his good traits he'd grown on his own! And he and Pyro fight, and he's blown up! ... " Fluttercruel hugged. "And nobody grieved for him... Not the heroes, the bad guys didn't even acknowledged anything had happened to him." Fluttercruel hugged herself, shivering.

Fliuttershy saw some more of her daughter's toy figurines on the shelf. Including one of the dark counterpart to the angel hero of a Pretendo game, who in the end had become less evil and more rude and stubbornly independent.

Another of a custom ordered action figure from online of the robot copy of a speedy blue hedgehog who in the comics only had developed his own name and identity before the comic was rebooted and canceled and rebooted again.

And a figurine of the rival from the Hearts' Kingdom game, in his darkness costume, used by his clone who had appeared in only a hand held 'inter-quel?' 'mid-quel?', having been born and died inside the tower the game took place in.

Fluttershy hugged her. "Well, I see one split off darkside that's stay good after gaining her own form... And I know plenty of people who'd grieve if something happened to her."

"... Thanks mom."  Fluttercruel leaned into her.

Session 88.1 Alex Warlorn and ItsFromPeople

(Continued From Session 16.22 Mtangalion)

Gilda said, "Well my country could desperately need some support. Ugh... But never tell anypony, anydragon or anygriff about this!"

Shining Armor replied, "Of course!"

Spike asked, "Why not let others know how much you have done for those griffs?"

Gilda snorted, "Then they'll expect it next time from me again. No, thanks."

Shining Armor grinned. "Don't worry, we won't tell anybody how much of a good person you actually are."

Gilda added, "Also! Grabby Grabby Griffins is only not speciesist if WE produce and sell it!"

"That's... reasonable I guess."

Spike asked, "You're okay with that?"

"Pipsqueak-"

"I'm not Pipsqueak, he's playing another one-on-one O&O pirate adventure with Princess Luna."

"-when a griffin dies, and they managed to get buried, they're buried clutching two gold coins in both claws, and that night, half of Griffinstone goes out to the graveyard with a lantern and shovels."

"Oh."

Session 88.2 Ardashir


"AHHH!" Twilight zapped yet another zombie griffon as it chased after her. "Students! Field Trip is canceled! Save yourselves!"

All over Griffonstone, angry undead griffons chased their living descendants, all yelling the same thing: "Gimme back my bits, ya crooks!"

Below her the Student Six fought back to back against the angry undead.

"Yeesh, Gallus!" Smolder incinerated one zombie. It went up in a puff of fire and feathers. "Did you HAVE to go 'treasure hunting' in the cemetery?"

"Aw, pipe down," he called to the dragoness as he tried to outrace an angry undead catbird chasing him. "You were the one who asked me, 'what do griffons do for fun around here'?"

"B-but robbing the dead?" Ocellus said from where she stood, currently in the form of a large bear.

"Hey, this whole town is pretty dead!" Gallus said back, sweeping his arms out.

Everything and one across Griffonstone froze to glare at him.

Gallus just sniffed. "Yeah, when Discord says it, then it's funny."

Session 88.3 Kendell2


"Okay, so explain this whole thing again?" Applejack asked, playing Manecraft with Twilight.

"Okay, so the Nether and Overworld have an interesting quirk: for every eight blocks traveling through Overworld you're only travelling one block through the Nether. So if you travel 100 blocks in the Nether, you're traveling 800 blocks in the Overworld," Twilight explained. "This means if you build a Nether portal in the Overworld but don't go through it, then build another at a different location, go through the Nether to that location in the Nether and build another portal, you can control where that portal spawns, but more importantly, you can effectively create a short cut through the Nether that only takes 1/8th the time to travel than going through the Overworld," Twilight explained, using informative illusions.

Applejack had a Desert Village that was extremely far from her home and turning it into a short walk was extremely appealing...so she took the coordinates and had Twilight do the math (divide each by 8) and built a Nether Portal beneath her base, and started towards the coordinates...

And was instantly reminded why the Nether was the Nether when a few blocks in lava started pouring down on her and she died.

And it also poured around her portal, making fixing that problem far more dangerous than she'd hoped, especially when for some reason placed blocks from inside the portal didn't set right.

After that, things where largely uneventful as she tunneled towards the coordinates, thankfully being in a tunnel with no Ghasts, until the time came to dig down to match the Y Axis...

"Wait a sec..." Applejack said, listening and hearing a familiar sound. "Blazes? Must be near a Nether Fortress...well, that saves meh some trouble later..." she muttered, and continued making her staircase...until she fell into the chamber with the Blaze Spawner and was surrounded by them. "HORSEAPPLES!"

One frantic building session later, she finally made it to the location...and realized that she'd forgotten the Obsidian for the portal and had to run back and get it before she finally linked the portals, finding herself in the Desert Village.

"Yah'd better appreciate that..." said Applejack, staring at a villager.

"Hmmm?" replied the villager, simply standing there and staring at her.

OOC: My first experience trying to make a Nether shortcut.

Session 88.4 Kendell2


"Wow..." said Sunset, her ingame self standing in Wallflower's Rainbows and Crystals house.

Which was essentially a gigantic garden with basically every flower known in the game. "So that's why you needed help finding all those kinds of flowers..."

"Too much?" Wallflower asked sheepishly.

Sunset smiled. "There's no such thing as TOO MUCH in this game. That's what makes it fun..." she said with a smile. "Besides, have you SEEN Pinkie Pie's house?"




"WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" typed Pinkie Pie as her character road the Ferris Wheel...and had basically made her entire house an amusement park shaped like a house.




"This is all about fun," Sunset replied, noting Wallflower's character was bright, colorful, and distinctive. Not garish, mind you, but clearly someone you wouldn't forget seeing.

"Thanks..." said Wallflower, giving a small smile. "I know there's some underwater flowers added in the latest update, want to dive down and get some for my pond?"

Sunset nodded. "Yeah, I want to get some Sunfish for my aquarium."

The two put snorkels on their characters (which somehow let them dive down deep). There was no drowning mechanic, if they ran out of air, their character simply automatically surfaced, but somehow a snorkal was all they needed.

Diving down, they found the underwater area had been heavily added to, being far more breathtaking and beautiful...coincidentally in tandem with the snorkal update.

As the two found the flowers and Sunset's sunfish...and also a tidal area that neither could cross.

"...Hmm...I wonder what that's all about..." Sunset said...then just smiled as Wallflower was actually SMILING and HAPPY having fun with a friend. "Questions for later..."

Session 88.5 Mtangalion


Headmare Twilight was just about to begin her first afternoon class of the day, Oubliette Mastery 101, when the classroom door flew open. Applejack barged in, gasping for breath. “Sorry to interrupt, Twi, but we’ve got a serious situation!”

Spike left yesterday’s homework papers on the desk and flew over. “Whoa, take it easy! What’s the matter?”

Garble, who was only there because Dragon Lord Ember had commanded him to attend classes “to make him a better ambassador,” elbowed Smolder in the next seat over. “I bet she ran out of cider and can’t find another bottle!” Without changing her bored expression, Smolder seized the offending elbow and pinched it hard. “Ow, jeez! Lighten up!”

Twilight nudged her friend reassuringly. “Just tell me what the problem is, AJ.”

Applejack sighed. “It was those varmints, Flim and Flam. They swindled the Golden Horseshoe Gals into spending their whole club budget on some kind of 'dragon longevity' potion. Ah warned ‘em it might do anything, but they tried it out and…”

The door banged open again, and four large healthy *dragonesses* squeezed through, each of them about twice the size of a pony, with smooth glossy scales, excellent muscle tone, and shapely curves. Their leader, the apple-green dragoness with pale gold fins, and orange swept-back horns that matched her pupils and wings, roared “Ah ha! So this is where ya ran off to, Applejack!”

“Granny Smith?!” exclaimed Twilight. Her eyes grew wider as she looked at the rest of them one by one… lime green scales with purple fins, peach with pink fins, bronze scales with green fins… “Auntie Applesauce? Apple Rose?! Goldie Delicious!?”

Most of the students bolted out of their seats and moved towards the back rows to get further away, but the three dragons who were actually supposed to be dragons stayed where they were… Smolder scowled, while Garble gawked, rubbed his eyes, and gawked some more. Spike gaped at them open-mouthed, still hovering in the air, until Twilight noticed and closed his mouth with a hoof, before anything flammable could drip onto the carpet.

AJ groaned. “Granny, Ah told ya to stay put! You can’t go getting all excited, especially in your condition.”

“My condition?” retorted Granny. “Fiddlesticks!” She struck an energetic pose and breathed a column of fire which barely missed the ceiling. “Ah haven’t felt this good in fifty years!”

“That’s because an elderly pony is still only a young adult in dragon years,” said Twilight, somewhat dazed. “I can’t believe that Flim and Flam actually invented something potentially useful…”

While Granny Smith and Auntie Applesauce argued with Applejack, Goldie Delicious tromped across the classroom and stopped in front of Garble. “Hey there, handsome.”

Garble blinked, then slowly turned a full 180 degrees in his chair to confirm that there were no handsome dragons standing behind him. “Me?” he asked, pointing at his chest.

“Well, who else, sugar?” said Goldie, leaning closer.

“He does look like a mighty fine catch!” said Apple Rose, joining her.

Smolder’s forehead twitched. “You… girls haven’t seen a lot of guy dragons, have you?”

Garble grinned slyly and waved a paw, trying to shush her. “Tell me more about how handsome I am, ladies…”

They were just about to snuggle up to Garble, when Twilight suddenly teleported him across the room. “Fair warning, ‘handsome.’ Those four dragons? They usually look like this.” She created a magical image of four elderly mares.

Garble cringed, his crimson scales looking a little green. “Wait, you mean… I could have been kissing that…” He pointed at the pouting dragonesses. “And suddenly the potion or whatever wears off and they turn back into this!?” He waved his limbs frantically. “Nope! Pass! I’m outta here!” He flew out of the classroom at top speed.

“He’s getting away!” cried Auntie Applesauce. “First one to catch him gets to ask him on the first date!”

At that very moment, Sludge rushed into the classroom, panting harder than Applejack had been. “Ladies, ladies! Why settle for the Overbite Kid when you can have a real dragon, like… whoa, hey…”  Granny Smith, Auntie Applesauce, Goldie Delicious bowled Sludge over and walked all over him in their haste to chase after Garble. “Oh, the pain, the pain! I’ll need to be nursed back to health… should only take… another month or two…”

Applejack chased after them… though at least she said “‘Scuse me, pardon me!” and didn’t step on Sludge, at least not on purpose.

Spike was startled by Apple Rose scratching his head fins. “If they can’t change us back, call me in ten years, cutie!” She winked slyly, then rushed after the others, trampling Sludge one more time. “Now, how do we fly again...”

Spike fluttered to an ungraceful landing, staring after her. “Buh… buh…”

Twilight raised an eyebrow. “Aren’t you saving yourself? You know, for Rarity?”

Spike looked up at Twilight. “Who?”

Twilight facehoofed. “Let’s just get the rest of that potion before anypony else gets into it. We need to know exactly what Flim and Flam managed to cook up.”

Session 88.6 Ardashir


"Shouldn't you do something about the new dragons, while you're at it?" Smolder folded her arms over her chest. She flew to Twilight, and jerked a thumb at herself. "Dragon Lord Ember won't be happy when she finds out ponies are turning into dragons because of some potion two con artists made."

Twilight scowled. "You're right. Starlight can contact Ember, I -- Starlight!"

Starlight froze where she stood. She was helping the still woozy Sludge to his feet, and was wiping his face with what looked like a sterile cloth. "I'm not getting anyone's DNA -- I mean, er, what?"

"Getting their what now?" Twilight shook her head. "Never mind. Look, just contact Ember. If the dragon potion's not permanent, she'll probably want to talk to Flim and Flam."

"And if it is, she's gonna want ta roast them," Smolder flew to the window. Amusement bubbled up in her voice. "Uh, teacher Twilight, I think maybe ya wanna check on those four new dragons."

Twilight gulped. She knew something of the draconic sense of humor. Ignoring Starlight as she gathered up some scales shed by the terrified Garble in his flight before leaving the room to cast her spell, she went to the window beside Smolder. "I'm not going to like what I'm about to see, am I?"

She didn't.

"AHHHHH!" Garble flew past the window, his wings beating faster than she'd ever seen. Eyes wide with terror, he shrieked, "Why did I haveta be cursed with being irresistible ta dragonesses?"

"Hold on there, handsome!" Goldie Delicious flew into sight, hot on his tail, zeroing in on him like a magically-guided ballista bolt. The first of the four cougars licked her scaly lips. "It's five laps and the winner gets you, but anypony, er, dragon that gets you before that gets a free kiss!" Twilight shuddered and Smolder laughed to see Goldie smack her lips. Garble glanced back, saw it, and with a howl redoubled his speed.

"Dang ya, Goldie!" Granny Smith flew after her, eyes blazing. Auntie Applesauce and Apple Rose were neck and neck behind her. Granny growled. "Ya breathed fire at us, that's gotta be cheatin'!"

"Yahoo!" Smolder clapped her claws before cupping them to her mouth. "Hey, new sisters! Catch him and I swear I'll be Maid of Honor at the wedding!"

As Smolder cheered the racers on Twilight slumped down, face in her hooves. This day couldn't possibly get worse. Unless Flim and Flam sold their potion to any other ponies. But they wouldn't, would they?

Her answer came as a pale brown male dragon the same size as the other four with pale orange spikes running along his spine dropped down before the window. Twilight heard Smolder's sudden intake of breath as the light reflected off of his magnificent brown eyes. She sternly told herself she was not getting attracted to a dragon, no matter how amazingly handsome and charismatic he was.

Oh, no.

"Young ladies," Grand Pear gave her a smile that sent her heart fluttering. Smolder sighed dreamily beside her. "I was looking for four incredibly gorgeous dragonesses. I was thinking of asking them to go flying together That new medicine those Flim and Flam fellows are selling really puts the life back into you!"

(OOC: Teen Dragon!Grand Pear will affect all the mares because, well, Kirk.)

Session 88.7 Mtangalion


“Mr. Slim? Mr. Slam?” called Rarity from her kitchen. “Can I get you any more tea?”

“No thank you, miss!” said “Mr. Slim” brightly. The corner of his bushy blond beard came loose, leaving the beard barely clinging to his face.

“Mr. Slam” did a double-take, and hastily reattached the beard with his magic. “We’re fine, thanks!”

Rarity returned to her sitting area, taking a long sip from her own teacup. “This dragon longevity potion certainly is expensive… on the other hoof, what upcoming designer wouldn’t want additional years of youth and vitality to further make her mark on the world…” She blushed a bit. “And to give a certain young dragon a fair chance…” She lifted her head, smiling. “Yes, I do believe I’ll take it!”

“Excellent choice, miss!” said Mr. Slim, hastily cramming the large bag full of Rarity’s bits into a lockbox. “Just remember, the potion is freshly mixed, so be sure and wait at least six hours before you…” His eyes bulged, seeing Rarity already uncorking it with her magic and gulping it down. “... drink it…”

Mr. Slam coughed. “Right, I think our business here is concluded! Let’s move along, brother of mine…”

There was a brilliant flash and a wave of heat. “Oh my,” squeaked Rarity. “I feel rather peculiar. That’s odd, did you gentlecolts just get taller? Why does my voice sound all high-pitched and raspy?” Small clawed feet shuffled across the carpet, bringing Rarity to a full length mirror… and the reflection looking back at her was that of a pearly-white dragoness with crystal-blue belly scales, about midway between Spike’s age and Smolder’s. Elegant purple spines ran down her back, slim purple wings fluttered, and a curl of purple fur twitched on the very tip of her tail.

Naturally, Rarity did the only possible thing and shrieked at the top of her lungs… which were smaller, true, but no less potent.

The Boutique doors flew open, and the brothers galloped through with their lockbox and cart with more potions in tow, losing the flimsy disguises in their haste. Rarity stumbled after them on all fours, face-planting twice before she had the inspiration to run on two legs instead. “Flim! Flam! I should have known!” she roared. “Get back here! What do you intend to do about this… this situation you’ve created!?”

Flim grinned. “Well, for one thing, we’ve been marketing this stuff all wrong!”

Flam paused long enough to rub his forehooves together greedily. “We can charge so much more for a *real* dragon potion!”

In the middle of this, Spike rocketed around a corner, flying like a giant roc was after him. “Rarity! I’d know that scream anywhere! Are you… okay…” Time seemed to slow down, and Spike’s eyes grew so large, they threatened to crowd everything else off his face. “You’re better than okay… you’re *beautiful*...”

And Rarity gasped, spinning towards him. “Spikey-Wikey?!” She blushed, feeling a furnace-heat in her new dragonish chest. “Spike… Oh my word, Spike, I never realized, you’re...”

The two young dragons flew right into each other and fell down in a heap, giving Flim and Flam time to gallop clean away, fleeing towards the city limits.

Spike shook it off and got to his feet first, having gained a lot of experience with high-speed crashes since he started flying. “Rarity! Oh my gosh, are you okay?” He held out his claw.

Rarity sat up, looking deep into Spike’s eyes. “I’ve… never felt better…” Their claws touched, clasped…

A power ballad seemed to swell across Ponyville, complete with synth and rock guitars. A mare’s voice belted out, “I want to know what love is! ~~~” before breaking into a fit of coughing. The music ground to a halt.

Spike and Rarity turned to look.

“Sorry,” said Octavia, standing atop Vinyl Scratch’s mobile audio-wagon. “Had a bit of a frog in my throat,” she told Vinyl. “Can I go again?”

Vinyl shook her head and lifted a marker in her magic, making another tally-mark under her name on a whiteboard. Whatever game they were playing, the score was Octavia 4, Vinyl 6 now.

Rarity looked to Spike, blushing again, still clasping his claw. “I suppose this transformation of mine won’t last. Such things never seem to…”

Spike grinned hugely, scratching the back of his head with his free claw. “Yeah… but in the meantime…” He beamed at her. “Come fly with me?”

“I know that one too!” shouted Octavia.

Vinyl Scratch tapped a button on her keyboard, playing a pre-recorded rimshot.

Session 88.8 Mtangalion Ardashir Alex Warlorn Kendell2

Twilight examined the increasingly out of control situation. "This is getting out of hand."

"Uh, don't dragons have a very small reproduction rate? Won't this cause...issues?" asked Starlight.

Twilight's eye twitched at that, her mind envisioning a thousand years from now with the world overun by adult dragons. "Starlight! Go back in time and erase the idea of the potion from Flim and Flam's minds before they ever invent it!"

Starlight raised an eyebrow. "But you told me never to use time travel or mind magic ever again!"

Twilight looked at her frantically. "This is an exception!"

Starlight looked defensive. "But you'll get angry at me when I return to the present and you don't remember you telling me to!"

Twilight wrote a note literally to herself. "Here, give this back to me when you return!"

"Okay then..." Starlight said, teleporting away.

Twilight sighed. "Okay, I sent Starlight off... What's taking her so long? She's time traveling!" She then froze as a massive shadow appeared over her. A gigantic dragon with scales and spines in Starlight's coat and mane colors landed behind her.

The dragon robbed her head awkwardly. "Er, Twilight? Well, I cast the spell to find and meet the pony who made that potion, and it turned out they were actually born back after the Three Tribes settled Equestria. And they needed a test subject, so... Well, a year ago Flim and Flam stole the potion recipe from my lair. But we'll figure this out, right?"

Twilight's mane began to get disheveled. "I think I'm about to go crazy here! What else?"

Ember followed Starlight and landed next to her, before seeing a screaming Garble fleeing the four new whelps. "So that's them, huh? Dad and I both told you to keep a better eye on that potion recipe! It's like you wanted it to be stolen!"

Starlight's eyes darted back and forth. "Just avoiding a time paradox, dear."

Twilight blinked. "Wait, are we in an alternate timeline now?"

Starlight shrugged. "I prefer new and improved. Oh, hey, check this out."  She then turned into an Alicorn an inch taller than Celestia, with shimmering galaxies and chrono-shifts in her flowing mane, and poses before changing back.

Ember blushed. "Mooom, don't turn into a pony! It's embarrassing."

Twilight sighed. "I'm still having trouble picturing it... you? And Torch?"

Starlight gave a shrug. "What can I say? Neither one of us has to ask 'Did you feel the earth move?'"

Twilight's face turned green. "I never thought I'd say this, but... too much information!"

-

"And that's what would happen if you told me to go back in time to fix this," Starlight said gesturing to the world mirror showing off what had happened.

"Okay... so using time travel to solve this is out, got it," Twilight remarked.

Session 88.9 Ardashir

As Twilight argued over how to handle the five old ponies turned lecherous teenage dragons, Starlight took her collected scales into her lab and got to work.

"Okay," she examined a red scale. "Here's from Garble. Ugh, and this," she shuddered as she removed a stained cloth, "came from Sludge." She looked at a third example, some purple scales. "And Spike. Now we'll find out who he's related to and learn something about his family."

She set the purple scales down in between the samples from Garble and Sludge, took a deep breath, and cast her spell. A corona of pale violet magic wafted from her horn to the three samples.

"Now to see if Spike's related to Garble," Starlight smiled, "and I'll repeat my prior experiment with Sludge's scales just to be sure I can take him off the list. Maybe then Trixie will stop saying I can't handle these spells."

The energy hovered over the purple scales, extended two tendrils... Starlight clapped her hooves in glee.

And froze in shock at what happened next.

"Ladies! Stop chasing Garble!" Twilight yelled out the window. Behind her Sludge held an icepack to his head. As Garble and the four transformed mares flew past, she yelled to their pursuer, "Grand Pear! This is undignified for a stallion of your years! Even if he did become a teen dragon!"

"Twilight!" Starlight raced into the room, looking stunned. "I cast that heredity spell! Garble and Spike aren't related..."

"Good!" Garble yelled as he flew past the window again. "I knew I couldn't be related to that namby-pamby pony lover!" He flew on, with a yell of "Last lap, girls!" following him.

"But Garble is Sludge's son!" Starlight pointed her hoof at Sludge. She held the scale samples in her magic, with the green ones and the red ones both glowing the same shade of violet.

"What?" Twilight gaped in shock.

"What?" Sludge turned to the window and yelled out, "My sonny boy is an ambassador!"

"WHAT?" Garble flew headfirst into the crystal wall of the castle. "Owww! No way!"

"He's all mine!" Goldie Delicious cheered as she dove on the horrified Garble.

Session 88.10 Kendell2

In Alternate Universe

"So has anyone seen Chrysalis lately? She normally would've caused more trouble by now..." said Applejack shortly after their rather unpleasant camping trip.

"Not for awhile. Discord said he would pull a prank on her, hope he didn't go too far..." said Twilight.




"Hehe..." Discord said, holding the Frazzit's prison and dumping it down the chimney of Chrysalis's back up castle.




"I'm sure everything is fine..." said Rarity. "Besides, Chrysalis would kind of deserve it..."

"True..."




"Let me back in!" yelled Chrysalis like she was a child throwing a tantrum.

Imago merely ignored her, having a look in her eye akin to Chrysalis at her most happy, sitting on a throne and giving orders as Frazzits jumped around obliviously. "I know eventually we'll have to put things back, but I'm going to enjoy this..." she said with a smirk and laugh matching her mother's. "How exactly did that evil clone plan go, mother?"

"It would've gone a lot better if I didn't have your incompetence driven into my head!"

OOC: One explanation for why Chrysalis's competence levels dropped like a rock in the Mean Six episode...

Session 88.11 Grogar-the-oneser

(My addition to mtangolion)

"Give me that!" Twilight snapped as she read the notes "That doesn't say he his son."

"Oh thank Tiamat." Garble muttered

"It's said he his uncle," Twilight stated.

"AGREAERHWESGRWGRTVHYTRD!" Garble roared angrily, swearing in gibberish.

Session 88.12 Kendell2

"So, what do you think?" asked Applejack, seeming rather proud of the desert palace she'd built in Manecraft.

"Well done," said Twilight. "...Though is it just me or is the window and door off center?"

"Say what now?" Applejack asked, looking at it...and noticing indeed on one half the building the windows (and the wall inside) was indeed one block off compared to the other side. "...Gosh darn it!"

Twilight looked around the world. "Hey wasn't there a desert mountain over there?"

"Yeah, it's mah house now..." Applejack replied, grumbling as she sat about fixing her house.

"Oh..."

OOC: Again, true story.

Session 88.13 Grogar-the-oneser


"Do you know what i see..." Eris muttered looking through the mirror at the dragon potion fiasco.

"Err... A red dragon having a mental breakdown at dodging a figurative bad parent but still being related to a fat dragon while running away from creepy obsess teenage girls?" A guard said

"No, I see profit," Eris said

"Well that good.... how do we profit?"

Eris just smirked

(linebreak)

"STINKWOOD POTION!" A vendor pony (From Eris casino stated) "Strong enough to make any teenage girl that isn't a skunk run away from you like crazy!"

"SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!" Garble shouted as he drop the money and grab the jar before flying away.

The Vendor pony (Making sure Garble left the area) then pulled out gasmasks "Gasmasks for sale!"

Session 88.14 Ardashir


"Twilight!" Princess Ember dropped down before Twilight, the Bloodstone Scepter in one claw. "I got a message from Spike. What's this about somepony making a potion to create new dragons?"

"Ember! I'm glad you got here." The purple princess sighed in relief. Maybe now they could settle this problem. She quickly explained what was happening. "So Flim and Flam sold the potion to Applejack's grandmother and four other old ponies..."

"And one young one, Twilight." Dragon and Pony Princess both blinked to see a small and elegant white dragoness come strolling up, with a dreamy-looking Spike following her. "The last I saw those two swindlers, they were headed for the edge of town and saying they would sell the potion to more ponies for more money."

"Arrgh!" Twilight facehoofed. She flew up and looked around, seeing a dust trail vanishing in the direction of Canterlot. She landed, shaking her head. "Great! Now we'll have to deal with a whole horde of ponies turned fire-breathing reptilian barbarians."

Ember growled and Smolder glared. Twilight smiled weakly and quickly added, "But thankfully we have two experts on site to help."

Before she could say more a new shriek came from beside the school. Twilight and the others hurried to see Garble trapped between the four dragonesses. Cast off gas masks, of all things, lay at their clawed feet. Locking their lips with long forked tongues, they prowled around him.

"Fair's fair, girls," Goldie Delicious said, stopping in front of Garble and walking two of her claws up his scaly chest. Garble seemed to have trouble breathing as Goldie chucked him under the chin before grabbing hold of it. "I won the race and caught him, so I get first kiss!"

"Ember!" Garble reached out towards her. A breeze blew from him to them. Twilight gagged and Ember quickly put a claw over her nose. "Ya gotta help me! How will dragonkind survive without me?"

"We should be so lucky," Smolder said. Ember shushed her.

"Garble, why should I save you from any dragoness crazy enough to want you?" Ember flew over, hovering nearby the five dragons. She looked at Twilight. "For that matter, why should I stop two ponies who want to uplift ponies into being dragons?"

"They're charging for it!" Twilight yelled at her.

"And?"

"We don't know where they're getting the dragon essence for it!" Twilight flew to Ember. Goldie, Granny Smith, and the others were watching Ember as warily as any dragon faced with a threat to something it desired. "What if they're hurting dragons somehow?"

"Well, I guess," Ember folded her arms and furrowed her scaly brow in thought. "Wait, didn't you say there were five ponies turned dragons?"

"Six, darling," Rarity said. No one paid attention. She folded her arms and pouted.

"Well, yes, there's Grand Pear. He's the dragon with the lovely brown scales and silky commanding voice and..." Twilight shook herself. "Ember, be careful. Something about him makes females act foolish."

Ember laughed and sprayed fire. "Pony females, maybe, but not dragons. We have more self control, not like you mammals. Besides, I have the Bloodstone Scepter," she brandished it, crimson light spilling from its gems. "I command other dragons, not the other way around --"

"Miss Twilight!" Ember froze as Grand Pear flew down between her and Twilight. The sunlight gleamed magnificently on his scales. Ember stared and began panting as he spoke. "Have you convinced the ladies to let poor Garble go? Maybe we ponies should just leave dragons alone. Our advanced culture could damage theirs. You'd think it would be a prime directive to -- oh, hello, madam," he smiled at Ember. "I apologize, I seem to have missed your name?"

"Bwuh-huh," Ember said, tongue still lolling, the Bloodstone Scepter falling from her claws to land at Granny Smith's feet. Twilight wondered if Ember's IQ had just dropped by thirty points as she said, "I'm handsome, Ember. I mean, I'm Ember, handsome. I think I am, anyway." Looking like she floated rather than hovered, Ember said in a voice that sounded like she'd been drugged, "Hey, uh, wanna be mine in exchange for getting to be Dragon Lord? I have the scepter right here. Hey!" Ember seemed to come back to her senses. "Where's the scepter?"

"Ya mean this here thing?" Everyone turned to see the still draconic Granny Smith raising the Bloodstone Scepter in one claw. It flashed with light. "Yeow! What in the hay does that mean?"

Smolder looked faint. She looked at Twilight. "It means that unless Princess Ember can win a challenge for the throne, dragons have a new Dragon Lord!"

Session 88.15 Mtangalion


Garble squeezed his claws into fists, bracing himself, then blurted out, “I’ll trade you!”

“Huh?” said Twilight, Spike, and baby dragon Rarity.

“Eh? What now?” said Granny Smith, sounding very much like her old self, even if her voice was clear and strong now.

Garble pointed. “You give me the Bloodstone Scepter, and… and I’ll give you that kiss!”

Granny Smith padded closer, giving him a saucy grin. “Oh, will you now? This had better be a real kiss, not some peck on the cheek! Ah’ve got experience, ya know!”

Garble gulped, sweating more as he took her claws in his, and wrapped one paw around the scepter. Then he gave her a quick kiss, but Granny Smith seized him with draconic strength and kissed him deeply, holding him still until the young red dragon stopped trying to squirm away, and started kissing her back.

Spike and Twilight’s eyes grew huge.

Grand Pear watched the green-scaled alien female getting kissed, and felt oddly jealous.

Rarity clasped her claws, blushing at the scene. “Oh my! I was half-convinced that by taking the scepter, Garble would become a prince, and thus his kiss would break the spell, but this is much more romantic!”

The rest of the Golden Horseshoe gals pouted, and then they started cheering Granny on.

“Well, don’t that beat all,” said Applejack, arriving at a trot with Big Mac beside her. “At this rate, we’re gonna have real live dragons in the Apple family! Heck, maybe Twilight should just marry ‘em now. Spike, how quick can you get a marriage license?”

Big Mac groaned. “Would ya knock it off with the matchmaking, AJ? You ain’t the Apple family matriarch just yet.”

AJ gave her brother such a glare that he backed up a couple paces. “And don’t think Ah’ve forgotten you, Mac! It’s high time ya picked one of those pretty mares you’ve been stringing along and gave me some nieces and nephews! Heck, pick all of ‘em! There’s plenty of ya to go around!”

Meanwhile, Garble gasped and panted, finally coming up for air. “Whoa… how?”

Granny chuckled and flicked his scaly nose with her tongue. “Ah told ya, experience. You ain’t had that much yerself, have ya?” She stroked his head fins soothingly. “Don’t you fret, we can make up for lost time. Oh, and Ah guess yer the Dragon Lord now.”

“Huh?” Garble realized that he had one arm around the sexy young dragoness, and his other claw was indeed clutching the flashing Bloodstone Scepter. “Awesome! I guess I am!” He admired it, then went back to kissing Granny Smith.

Grand Pear could stand no more… he flew over and shook Ember. “That rebel dragon is taking a mate you don’t approve of, and trying to take usurp your rule! Let me fight him… as your champion!”

“Hey!” snarled Ember. “Female dragons aren’t weak like pony females! I can fight for myself!” But then she made the mistake of looking into Grand Pear’s hazel eyes again. “But I guess that’d be hot. I mean, fine! You’re fine! And hot!”

“You’ve got… to snap… yourself out of it!” exclaimed Grand Pear, shaking her again. He looked to Rarity. “You there! Shirt!”

Rarity blinked. “Eh? Why?” Still, she pulled a greenish-gold shirt out of… somewhere, and tossed it to the handsome bronze dragon.

Grand Pear pulled the shirt on quickly, then tore it with his claws! Everyone gasped!

"Why are we gasping?" whispered Twilight.

Smolder clasped her claws like a besotted school filly and batted her eyelashes at Grand Pear. "Don't know, don't care," she purred.

Garble snorted flames, laying down the Scepter to put his fists up! “So, you wanna fight a real dragon that bad, pops? Get over here!”

“Huh? Where’s that music coming from?” asked Spike. “With the drums and horns… It makes me want to get all fired up and punch stuff!”

Session 88.16 Alex Warlorn   (So long and thanks for all the love.)

Rarity as a tweenage dragon said, "Spike darling? Let's just have fun."

"Alright!"
Ponies and Dragons LXXXVIII
This chapter needs cover art! 

This is a group-story/addventure/chain-story/round robin, fanfic 'story' of the Mane Six Plus Spike playing Dungeons and Dragons/Oubliettes and Ogres, with occasional guest players (like Trixie or Gilda), with Spike and Twilight rotating as Dungeon Master. It's intended to be an IN-CHARACTER comedy.

Each post should be more self contained, if say (in game) Twilight is fire balled by a Mimic in one post in a desert pyramid, the next post can have them sailing a ship encountering seaponies siren expies, each one containing a short joke, or an extension of a previous scene if that's what the poster wants. Time skips, flash backs, the ponies rotating different characters and campaigns, are all allowed (and ENCOURAGED) as long as the ponies stay in character (such as Pinkie Pie NOT fireballing a cabbage sales stallion and saying she thought he was a demon, thank you very much).

P.S. Addendum. No adding entire new fanon countries and/or fanon species.

Pinkie Pie, "And pretty please do not take anything personally! It's just a game!"

Rainbow Dash, "What did you say!?
What's you post in the comments, it's then copy and pasted into the fic above, have fun.

THIS CHAPTER NEEDS COVER ART!

"Wow! We finally got the castle of the two sisters restored!" Princess Twilight said proudly. The girls sat in the main room of the castle, fully restored to its prime.

"Ya know," Applejack said, "Ah gotta admit, it's like we forgot we were even doing anything with this place after we opened the harmony box."

"Well, we did have to fight Tirek, then we had to be sent on our first mission by the cutie mark map..." Twilight explained.

"Yeah, Ah get that, but seriously, after all the hard work we put into place... it was like YOU had your own castle right close to Ponyville, with the library that was yer beloved home conveniently destroyed, there was no need for us to bother to fix up this place... when that wasn't even the point of why we were doing to begin with."

"Applejack you're just being strange, did you have some bad cider?" Rainbow Dash asked.

"Speaking of the Harmony Box darling," Rarity said. "What happened to our Rainbow Power? We used it once, and then Luna says we used it in her dream to save her from being Nightmare Moon again, and that was it. After all the lead up, build up, and being proven worthy of it, it does seem like a cheat."

"Perhaps it just served its purpose?" Twilight said.

"What about Storm King?!" Rainbow said.

"Well, if we had just 'kicked flank' then and there, Tempest Shadow would have never reformed, so it was for the greater good."

"That makes sense," Fluttershy admitted.

Rarity said, "If we're bringing up, 'served it purpose' then why do we leave the Element of Harmony with the Tree of Harmony? The Plunder Vines are no longer around, which was the entire reason we gave them back to it to begin with. And we saw we could remove them without trouble defeating the Pony of Shadows..."

"I gotta admit, that does kinda make us seem like idiots," Pinkie Pie said.

"Now girls! I know this all seems strange! But there's a reasonable and logical explanation for all it I'm sure! Just like how we learned the Tree of Harmony was created by the Pillars!"

"I gotta admit," Rainbow Dash snorted. "Having read a lot of Daring Do's adventures? I think the Tree of Harmony was cooler when it WAS a mystery! It loses it's mystical mysteriousness! Sure it make sense... kinda... where the heck did they get the 'seed' anyway? How did Discord know about it? How did Luna and Celestia know using the Elements would weaken it? What did Equestria do BEFORE the tree was around? AGH!" Rainbow Dash suddenly looked like she had a horrible headache. "If Celestia didn't always exist, and ponies always had to move the sun, then how the hell did ponies evolve at all!? AAHHHHHHHH!!!!"

Princess Twilight Sparkle broke into a cold sweat.

The girls all fanned Rainbow Dash, keeping her from hitting the floor, and waiting for her to calm down.

"Twilight," Fluttershy said meekly. "Not to add more troubles, but now that -I- think about it... what about Mage Meadowbrooks' artifacts? Shouldn't we have recovered them for her? And with how they were magical artifact all created by her... isn't that UNICORN magic? Not EARTH PONY magic? Starlight isn't stupid... she wouldn't make up a lie about a stick that could remove cutie marks unless it stuck, and that really seems more like unicorn magic than Earth pony magic..."

"Girls! Girls!" Twilight said, finding herself for once in her life trying NOT to think about something, like something terrible would happen if she did! "I know that sounds strange when you say it like that, but I... don't THINK I ever said she actually made them... "

"That seems rather convoluted..." Rarity said.

Applejack said, "Speaking of Starlight Glimmer, and other ponies we've known who've turned over a new leaf... anypony notice how Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon just vanished into thin air after Apple Bloom and her friends earned their cutie marks? Haven't seen her around town except for the one time eating pie. What has she and Silver Spoon been up to? You think she'd be hangin' around Apple Bloom more!"

Then Twilight against her will, realized something.

"And! Speaking of Apple Bloom!" Twilight was shaking. "We all saw the talents Apple Bloom, Scootaloo, and Sweetie Belle were all obviously going to have: design, dancing, and singing!"

"Yeah," Pinkie Pie admitted. "We were all having this BIIIIG betting pool on how they were going to finally realize those were their talents."

"Then Apple Bloom's talent for alchemy showed up, then Scootaloo's for stunt riding and mechanics... And then suddenly, their talent is being Cutie Mark Crusaders? It's like destiny itself was rewritten when we weren't looking!"  

Twilight felt terrified, like a veil had been lifted from her mind.

Rainbow Dash got her hooves still dizzy. "And... then... speaking of Scoots... The Washouts... they seemed to go poof after their show in Ponyville. I know how popularity works, and even if they were a fad, having massive amounts of popularity like that that wouldn't just vanish after a single incident where nopony seemed to get hurt. It's not like they'd all go to doing weather work, or they'd dump Lightning Dust... But they were rivaling the Wonderbolts... and they had that 'underdog' and 'nothing to lose' appeal going the audience love...."

"THE PONY TONES!" Rarity gasped like struck by lightning. "What happened to Toe-Tapper, and Torch Song?! I! I can't remember WHEN I formed the group! I can't remember when I met them! It's like they appeared and disappeared!"

"Well... my fangs disappeared too... I mean, the ones I had after I became a vampire bat for a while... OOPS! I kinda meant to be keep that a secret in case Twilight wanted to 'study' me or something!"

"Fluttershy! I'd never experiment on a friend like that! And not without permission!" Twilight said.

"I know, sorry, I'm kind of known for silly fears."

"I wonder if you can turn into a Thestral now," Twilight wondered.

"Twilight."

"Sorry sorry!"

"So Twilight, where's Tempest Shadow?" Rainbow Dash asked.

"OH! That one's easy! She got shipped up north to work in the Crystal Empire with a foalhood friends of hers, she really likes working there from what she's said. Oh and she's joined a 'secret' strike group of former villains of Princess Luna's. Celestia and Luna aren't the only ones with spies, heh. See? Nothing to worry about at all, nothing wrong is happening with the consistency of the world."

Fluttershy said, "But uh, what about all the other things we-"

"NOTHING AT ALL!" Twilight snapped. "It's not like our universe is filling up with forgotten factors that should still be in play but aren't, and other factors that have appeared out of nowhere only to vanish again! Like our world is filling up with contradictions and will soon be reset to avoid calamity... but that's just silly, right? Right!"

Pinkie Pie sighed, and she look at he friends, "Well, no reason in pretending anymore. Not much time left until the next reboot. I hope whoever we are in the next world, that we're still friends... Me remembering the old world was a glitch before. So I doubt it'll happen twice. Which means... They'll be truly forgotten... Wysteria, Kimono... Minty! I was really hoping to find her again before this world ended too... I guess our hopes and dreams don't always come true... But I want you girls to know, I'll always love you too friends."

The End?
The Alicorn of Death, King of the Grim Reapers, Mortis asked one of his angels of death, "So, Ryuk, what did you learn as Mr. Cake?"

Ryuk said, "... That life is precious and not easily taken away."

Mortis nodded, "Good. Now, back to your assigned tasks."

Ryuk bowed, "Yes, sir. but... I have a really big favor to ask."

Mortis raised an 'eyebrow' or would with his skull face, "And what is that?"

Ryuk pleaded, " ...Please don't have me be the one to write Cupcake, Pound Cake or Pumpkin Cake's names in my Death Note!"

Mortis decided, "... Very well. But it'll cost you an apple. "
Starlight attempts to flirt with Sunburst, but he's completely clueless.

"Oh Sunburst!" Starlight said. "Your glow is like the sunrise!"

"Really? I thought I was more an orange color than a sunrise."

"Your mane is only matched by your fiery passion!"

"I think it's because I forget to comb it that ends up looking like tongues of flame."

"Your eyes are like gems!"

"Really? Maybe it's because of my prolonged exposure to the crystal heart!"

"You are my light in the darkness!"

"Thanks, I know some good illumination spells."

"I wish for a night for joy between us!"

"Really? Did you know they released Dragon Trap?! I was saving it for your birthday!"

"Really? Let's have fun while reading Daring Do, and organizing books! Wait that doesn't sound right! Spike don't look over my shoulder!"

-

"Dangit! Why is this so hard? It was so much easier to write when I didn't know what I was doing!" Twilight fumed standing over her writing desk and her pros of Starlight and Sunburst.

Spike asked, "Didn't the Equestrian literally society ban you from writing romantic novels for a thousand years?"

"Uh, this isn't romance writing! This is simulations of possible relationships to cut-off friendship problems before they happen!"

"Riiiiiiiight."

"Hey Twilight!" Starlight Glimmer stuck her head in. "I asked Sunburst on a date! He said yes! Later!" He stuck her head out.

"W-what!? That simple?! B-but- Agh!"

"Life is stranger than fiction."

(EG!Scootaloo plays with her Tech-Deck--that's finger skateboard toys--while a tiny Pony!Scoots shows her up with some sick tricks, riding a fingerboard like a real skateboard.

A giant sized human Scootaloo squatted down among a model personal skating park, playing with her finger skate board. Comparing tricks with a tiny pegasus Scootaloo.

As the two did a steep race down a slop and up the opposite wall, giant Scootaloo stared at her tiny counterpart.

"H-hey! Flying is cheating!" The giant Scootaloo said barely being able to hold back a laugh.

"It's not flying it's hang-time!" The pony pegasus answered epically, her mane flapping in the air, her wings were not buzzing.

"This is a dream you know," Giant Human Scootaloo said.

"Yeah, I knew that as soon as I realized I was skating without a helmet, but it's MY dream!" Tiny Pegasus Scootaloo replied.

"No way! It's my dream!"

"Actually it's both your dreams!"

"Vice-Principle Luna/Princess Luna!"

"Pegasus Scootaloo is correct, I am Princess Luna, goddess of the night, guardian of the dream world. And you two are having a shared dream. It seems Princess Twilight left the portal between worlds open, and you both happened to be dreaming about skate boarding tonight, and this caused your similar minds to overlap."

"Oh okay!"

"That's cool!"

"I don't get the appeal myself, but as the guardian of dreams I've seen many things that ponies prefer to keep private, fantasies and fears that are best left personal."

"Hey! There's nothing creepy about skateboarding!" Pony Scootaloo said.

"Or... playing with cool finger skateboards..."

"I meant the micro/macro thing."

"Oh," they said together.

"As I said, I am not one to judge. I've seen ponies who think seeing other all tied up and/or being all tied up themselves as fun. Others find being hypnotized and turned into another species while wearing a maid costume as the embodiment of bliss. Some find a zen like state in being turned to stone. Others think being turned temporarily into a cake and EATEN is fun. And then there are those who just think hooves are the most interesting part of a pony. I won't say who of course. But there are humans and ponies you both know who have interesting that are best kept private."

Both Scootaloos thought the same thing, 'Twilight Sparkle has a thing for mind control.'

"Yeah, I learned that after Gabby Gums."

"I learned that after Anon-a-Miss."

The two orange girls looked at each other.

"Used media to spread nasties secrets about everyone/everypony for selfish reasons?" They echoed. They then nodded.

"It seems that constants and variables do exists across all realities," Princess Luna mused. "Now this particular avatar of mine would like to see more of your skateboarding before Twilight remembers to close the portal and this shared dream comes to an end." Luna had a hat appear on her head, along with a 'Go Scootaloos' fang, and sat down in the bleachers.

The Scootaloos happily obliged.

Discord holds a villain still while the girls blast both of them with a rainbow preparing to get turned to stone, but being surprised that he wasn’t turned to stone due to him accepting the magic of friendship.

King Inferno, the previous Dragon Lord who had refused to given up his position when his term ended, and whom Torch had challenged and toppled, had escaped Tartarus, and if allowed to go unchallenged would destroyed Equestria, and pretty much any other kingdom he felt like.

But thankfully the Elements of Harmony weren't about to let that happen! They had the regalia to turn the giant dragon into a solid rock mountain! But for being a giant dragon, he was surprisingly fast, and his fire breath was somehow about to block the Elements of Harmony,

"Because of course it does! Nothing can ever be simple or easy for us!" Rainbow Power Applejack cursed.  

Then Discord teleported behind King Inferno, who was, of course, somehow able to deflect the all powerful magic of Discord, because of course he could.

He grew to giant size and wrestled with the giant dragon. "I've got him! BLAST AWAY!"

"But what about you!?" Rainbow Power Fluttershy asked worried.

"Don't worry about me, just go for it!"

"I love you Discord!" Fluttershy shouted with tears in her eyes.

"I love you too!"

And the Rainbow of Light came forth, and washed over Discord and Inferno.

"NOOOO! NOT AGAIN! MY FIRE IS ETERNAL!" Inferno snarled as he was turned to stone. Discord prepared for his final fate... only...

"Huh?" Discord looked at himself, he wasn't stone, shrank himself back to pony size and checked himself over. "This is new."

"Discord!" Fluttershy hugged him. Then blushed insanely. "I! UH! WHAT I SAID!" Fluttershy was bright red all over and ready to faint.

"OH! RIGHT! WHAT I SAID!"

"So when's the wedding?" Rainbow grinned.

"So... anypony gonna ask why Discord ain't a rock?" AJ asked just that.

"Isn't it obvious?" Twilight said with a smile. "Discord has accepted the magic of friendship."

"Blech! Don't make it sound like I'm some sort of nice guy now!... I just happen to enjoy your company now and consider your continued existence worth risking my own for, and I know I can open to you without judgement, I occasionally offer boons without expecting payment in return, and I longer seek to twist ponies into abominations of themselves for my own amusement," Discord said.

"We're your friends too Discord," Flutterhy said.

Cozy Glow and Tirek pull a prank on the Guards in Tartarus.

Sealed in Tartarus, the tyrant Tirek and his apprentice Cozy Glow sat in cages next to each other.

"I'm bored," Cozy Glow said.

"I"m bored too," Tirek said.

"It's gonna be a bit until the next of our evil plan goes into affect."

"Won't your parents just break you out?"

Cozy Glow shrugged. "Not sure, my father was a demon and my mother was a jackal. My adopted parents have no clue of course. I don't count on them being able to bully or protest me into getting released though. At least I didn't get redeemed."

"Ugh! I know. A fate worse than never-being-heard-from-again, and they call us monsters. Still... I'm starting to think enduring those seven idiots for eternity would have been preferable to this boredom. Ugh!"

"Actually, that goes give me an idea on how to get rid of our boredom for a minute."

"How so?"

"Let's prank the guards," Cozy suggested.

"Not that wouldn't be amusing, I also think it would be rather stupid on our part."

"Good thing we're already sentenced to life in this place aren't we? We're already stuck together in separate cages with no amenities what-so-ever. We're already in the most high security prison in existence, and they don't turn villains to stone anymore or make villains already captured 'never-heard-from-again'. They legally can't do worse to us!"

"... Fine. What do you have in mind?"

-

As the new guards arrived, Tirek and Cozy Glow practically stage whispered to each other,

Cozy lead in, "Our plan has worked! Now that we are both in Tartarus, we can easily escape our cages, and get the key to the secret vault of incredibly evil weapons!"

"Quiet fool! What if someone hears that it is hidden in the stench-kows den?"

"Ha! Who is going to hear? The guards? They're so stupid! They'd just report it to the Element of Harmony, who'd then get the key themselves and get all the glory, while the guards will stay a joke who can't defend a cup of chocolate pudding from a parasprite! When they could have done it themselves and finally given the royal guard the recognization it so desperately deserves!"

-

Two incredibly stinky royal guards sat before Princess Luna, who was wearing a clothes pin on her royal nose.

"So tell us again, how did ye exactly think searching for a fictional key among the reeking cattle of the netherworld would improve the standings of the royal guards loyal service to the ponies of Equestria again?"

"It made so much sense at the time..." One of the guards said.

"And I thought they were making up the stench-kow part to throw us off," said the second.

"No, they're officially listed in the Equestrian Monster Manual, readith a book."

Check Out The Pony POV Series
United States
The Pony POV Series is officially open season, with Kendell2 as its head curator.

2018-11-09 AW Crowd52 1500 by alexwarlorn

tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…

tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…

"Universe Bible: According to Alex Warlorn, while he is leaving after finishing the Finale, he set some ground rules for the POV series should anyone be willing to write Seasons 9 and beyond to correspond with the events of FIM Seasons 3 and onward:

"Animated canon villains level up in proportion with the heroes." Adaptational Badass goes to both sides.

"There are no background characters." The Main Characters Do Everything is fully averted here. Can't let the main heroes carry all that workload now, do we?
-Regarding the two rules above, while it's true that the alicorn princesses can no longer be the divine force as they were in previous seasons after Applebloom's "End of the World" Special Cosmic Retcon, it is no excuse to just start re-enacting all their canonical defeats in FIM Season 3 onwards. Give them better roles and if they actually have to lose, try to make it so that the drama from The Worf Effect is actually believable instead of being a blatant example of plot convenience. Same goes for the Equestrian military.

"No 'I don't remember' secondary side effects of mind magic."

"Discord and Celestia's families already had Ragnarok, they don't need a second one." 

"No character bashing."

You know what i always found interesting. in the cartoon version of Jumanji has shown peaceful and/or good tribes (Jumaki, Fludgel) and neutral groups (Manji, Slick)

But in a sense it does work, Jumanji  (Despite being a death-trap) does give it's player a fighting chance.

That is logical. Also I traded some fanart to have some digimon and Sonic character as Manjis. I loved that show. I had no idea it had a finale until decades later!

True that.

I hope zathura gets a reboot someday. i feel it was underappreciated (Most people don't understand it was a sequel to Jumanji, or that it was done by the same guy.)
