Skystar and Terramar arrive to Twilight's Castle in a panic, alongside Marenia's friends claiming that seaponies and merponies, including Terramar's forgotten-memory proned Dory-inspired sister Tang, are being kidnapped by a gang of pirates that look like Abyssinian in origin, lead by a scarred up blue parrot that looks like one of Celaeno's crew, only to be discovered that it is Ace, who along Brutus, another thought to be lost pirate, are seen alive and well, who in assuming that Celaeno had died, have formed a mercenary pirate faction with bold-enough Klugetown Abyssinians, co-leading with an abyssinian peacock named Prima Penma Pluma. The group have now began to serve under their hirer, Captain Sea-Bitter, an old Unicorn former member of the EEA and naval captain with a peg-horn attachment due to an accident involving trying to capture an albino literal leafy sea dragon called The White Horn Sucker with an appetite for unicorn horns and magic and retired begrudgingly under the request of his sister Sea-Salt when the group disbanded. However he saw that as being freed from the 'boring job' and is actually relieved to be considered amongst the no-longer-accepted due to his minor kinship with Neighsay, even if he doesn't back Neighsay's beliefs. Now he sees this as a chance to hunt down the White Horn Sucker and chase it down with Captain Ahab-like madness. And such madness would likely be troublesome to the seaponies and merponies if he starts shanghaing them to become his crew with aide of his crew. Sea-Bitter is building up a large enough crew to use against the White Horn Sucker, but the problem is the White Horn Sucker lives in the Magix Cube Seas, a series of Bermuda Triangle-like oceans that makes magic impossible due to the rogue anti-magic storms and the reported sightings of pony-aliens there, of which the seas make the Sea and Merponies fear the prospect of going to those seas. But it is beyond the storms themselves. It is actselly the intentionally isolated home of the squid people that gave Gazelle her Uniter Blade accessory, called Krakens, in where they had disappeared to, done so by their Squizard Queen, Kala Mari, the half-mother of G4 Squirk, who grew to hate the outside world after her kingdom in submerged Equestria was ruined with her now rogue child's defeat. Now not only do the Main 7 and the Lodgers need to put a Pony Captain Ahab in his place before he goes the way of all Ahabs, but must now contend with avengeful queen of a lost civilisation, while finding out that the White Horn Sucker is connected to Kala's magic and perhaps the source of why she's so powerful. How will this play?

Scenes

Novo's Trip

Ichthyocentauria, Centaurmainia, During Surf and/or Turf

  • Novo:... So no matter how much the Princess of Friendship did as a first impression, I wish to do whatever I can to help her spread friendship.
  • Ichthyocentaur King: Sooo, friendship to them is... Alliance?
  • Novo: It's, kinda more complincated then that, but, I suppose in a seashell, it kinda is.
  • Maritime: And we are seapony ambassadors in charge of Novo's behavior by order of the Queen of the Seaponies.
  • Bikini: And so far, she's been going well. Queen Wavedancer will be proud.
  • Ichthyocentaur King:.... Well, as, Sesame Street-ish as it sounds, if my people can contribute it in some way, then, I see no reason to not accept it. I'll agree to not look at a gift seahorse' mouth when we should ever meet Princess Sparkle.
  • Novo: Thank you, King Bytho. We could really use it. I don't want other leaders going through the same hardships thanks to monsters like the Storm Clan.
  • King Bytho: It was an honor to do business with you.
  • Skystar: (Picks up a magic vibrating potion)... Mom, it's Aunt Flow.
  • Bikini: (Scoffs at that)
  • Skystar: (Blushes)... Hey you naughty guppy, I didn't mean THAT Aunt Flow!
  • Novo: (Facefins in embarrassment) Just, answer it, Skystar. (The bottle opens as Ocean Flow appeared)
  • (Ocean Flow): Sorry to bother you on your ichthyocentaur summit, Novy, but I'm sending a message to let you know that Princess Twilight arrived with those adorable three kids that once came to help Halo Jump because of a friendship mission involving me, Terramar, and Sky. Glad we got along before ending with the wet divorce. Terramar wasn't ready to choose between worlds, especially when he has enough on his plate taking care of Tang. Regardless, just wanted to let you know since, you know, the incident with the Pearl. Also, it's kinda clear everyone doesn't take your banishment on her all that seriously, so consider that when you take Celestia's suggestion to end the banishment to heart. Contact me once you can you get this. Oh, P.S., look out coming back home, the Flying Barracudas are acting up again. Bye. (The message cloud faded)
  • Skystar:... Glad to know Aunt Flow and Uncle Beak won't be divorcing after all.
  • Novo: Oh I know, they have been under tension. The Flying Barracudas would be, an inconvinence though. I guess we gotta go back. Pleasure doing diplomacy with you, your excellency.
  • King Bytho: As I you. (They left)... ("Gods DAMN, for what is basically a water horse that can turn into a birdhorse, is she hot!")

Kingdom Surface Outskirts

  • The four were seen surfacing, transforming, and leaving.
  • Maritime: "Well, that covers the ichthyocentaurs, the selkies, the kelpies, the taurocampuses, quinotaurs, sirens, aegicampuses, sea bees, pardalocampuses, sea horses, sea changelings, seagriffins, ugh, the Seaconequui, and the leocampuses.... Great oceans of Maricolous, that's a mouthful. Now we need to see the Merponies next. I'd included the Mermares, but the Equestrians already long had befriended them, so, they are kinda already included."
  • Bikini: "Well thankfully we don't have to travel too far cause the Sea-A-Bration's coming up! The Merponies will come to us!"
  • Novo: "Well of course. I was saving them best for last because of it. The Sea-A-Bration was a tradition we did with the Merponies for many generations, before they got banished to Desteny Islands by that crazy Discord and the Hippogriffs subsiquint retreat from the Storm King. It would be the first Sea-A-Bration in a LONG time!"
  • Maritime: "AND, a perfect oppertunity to have a long over-due Mer/Sea Pony summit."
  • Novo: "Oh come on, the Sea-A-Bration is suppose to be a time for fun, not business!"
  • Bikini: "Yeah, Mari, even I have to agree with that."
  • Maritime: I'm afraid life isn't always about fun. The world is still healing from the news that the Storm King is dead. We hardly have time for fun. You wish to enjoy yourselves, then be my guest. But Wavedancer expects me to do my job.
  • Skystar: Maritime, have you EVER considered kicking back? Life is supposed to be fun here.
  • Maritime: I used to think so. But that was when I was your age when the seas appeared much brighter. Now it's been darkened by adulthood and I have to face that life isn't supposed to be carefree and we all have to change. I do what I can for our people and I no longer have time for the halcyon days of my youth. You're lucky to still be carefree after weeks of hiding underwater. Not all of us flew carelessly across Harmonizing Heights like a great bird of prey or swim carelessly in the Weathering Shores like a dolphin.
  • Skystar: Well maybe because you didn't have the chance. Just saying, life isn't always serious business. Bikini can agree with that.
  • Bikini: Yeah! I'd like to have a pearl fragment to see what that would be like.
  • Novo: Well, knock yourself out in that plateau, kiddo. (Hands over a pearl fragment necklace and she shifts into a hippogriff)
  • Maritime: Just be careful around those Flying Baracudas.
  • Bikini: I wrestled them all the time! You've got nothing to worry about.
  • A creaturely squack was heard as a Baracuda with Pterasaur wings flew across the four!
  • Novo: "Oh boy, that scout spotted us."
  • Maritime: "Bikini, get back into the water this minute!"
  • Bikini: "Chillax, I got this covered! (A shadow formed behind Bikini as she looked in surprised to see that she is surrounded by an entre flock/school of Flying Baracuda)...... Actselly, I, may have to take a raincheck on being a Hippogriff! (Jumps back into the water before the Flying Baracudas could react!)"
  • The Four dived down too deep for the Flying Baracudas to be able to accreately follow!
  • Maritime: ".... Perhaps it is best we stay in the water for safer travel."
  • Skystar: "Well, at least we know from Aunt Flow that they would be out there."
  • They resumed swimming.
  • Maritime: "But still! I must stress that you take the oppertunity of the Sea-A-Bration to talk to Oceanious and Barrier Reef."
  • Novo: "But aren't the merponies already in good terms with the land ponies? They were meant to be the land ponies evolved to live underwater. Unlike us, they have wings and horns."
  • Maritime: "Yes, but it's not just to bring the sea communities closer to land communities. It is also to bring sea communities into a more unified front! And merponies are the most impourent to bring those communities into a tighter knit! Even with the Storm King gone, we can't exactly afford to not build these essential bridges. Closer communites discourage easy pickings for congurors!"
  • Novo: That's true. We need to be prepared for his family's possible revenge scheme. Still, it's going to be a little uncomfortable talking to them since they were gone long before I was born.
  • Maritime: "You handled talking to those other leaders well enough, this will be no different. Besides, Oceanious looks like a merpony verson of Celestia, and you handled talking to her well enough, just imagine that."
  • Novo: Right. Now we must head for Weathering Shores.

Weathering Shores

  • Novo: (They arrived at the same beach as in Surf and/or Turf as the two individual races bowed to their rulers and ambassadors)... (Takes a deep breath)... This is not too far from where I met Swellsea. She saved me from drowning. And before Bikini asks a stupid question, it was before I was given the pearl.
  • Maritime: "It looks like we interupted a party of sorts."
  • Bikini: "Aww, and we missed most of it."
  • Skystar: "Well, had it last abit longer, the Flying Baracudas would caused it to end either way. Parties and Flying Baracudas are, typically not a good combination."
  • The CMC were seen in a sandpony statue of a familier Alicorn.
  • Novo gave a curious stare and walked up to them, of which the trio gave clear worried expressions hiding behind large smiles.
  • Applebloom: "Howdy Queen Novo! If your looking for Twilight, she, went to the train station to get us tickets back to Equestria!"
  • Novo: "(Rolled her eyes calmly, seeing what was going on) Well, I wanted to say thanks for helping Terramar's family out of this issue. Didn't know friendship missions accounted for family. And that I said I'll pardon friendship missions in the banishment. Though even then, it's kinda clear my people didn't even took it seriously. Oh and, Skystar said hi. (Walks off)......"
  • Twilight's voice: "(Muffled in the sand statue)."
  • Scootaloo: "(Quietly) Keep still just in case."
  • Novo gave a quiet chuckle having secretly heard that. She desided to leave it alone in acknowledging that Twilight isn't fully ready to confront her yet. Understandingly so, given how she reacted in the school mess, which made Novo less then enfusiastic.

Novo's Throneroom

  • Novo returned her to glorious underwater throneroom via jellyfish elevator as a seapony as it was not as lively as it typically was.
  • Novo sighed and sat down on the throne.
  • A shadow was seen in the throwne walls.
  • ???: "It seemed rather appearent that Sky Beak did little to nothing to enforce your little "Banishment" on Sparkle, No-go."
  • Novo gave an unenfusiastic frown.
  • Novo: "(Deadpan) Hello again, Backwater."
  • A black seapony covered in the pattern of a yellow-bellied sea-snake and colored hair came in.
  • Backwater: "Why, it wasn't just him, wasn't it? Nobody, guard or otherwise, really batted an eye that an exile was allowed to take a train-ride back to hippogriff territory. If I didn't know any better, I'd write that off as a sign that a ruler isn't being taken seriously."
  • Novo: "Backwater, I made an exception for friendship missions or if an emergency. Saying otherwise would be treason. Also, it's because Maritime has been VERY firm about me holding grudges from, that event, and-"
  • Backwater: "Exceptions, aside, Miss Novo, it is blantently obvious that people take your declarations with a grain of sand. I was amazed that there wasn't even so much as an angry old fart upset about Sparkle's attempt on the pearl. It's like that they were REALLY happy, that the Storm King was defeated by her. It's as if, you made yourself looked like an idiot for not realising the oppertunity before you."
  • Novo: "Backwater, I have matured from putting up with your hazing, and you are now an adult. It's time to call it quits."
  • Backwater: "Tch, this isn't about what we did as children anymore, Novo. Of course I matured from the days I refered to you as "underkill" and your crazed sister Corono as "overkill". It's about how much you failed, as a leader. Had I been king, I would've leaped at the first oppertunity to damage the Storm King's power."
  • Novo: "(Unimpressed scoff), Oh please, you were among the those of us who're the most afraid of him and you know it. You would've been an even bigger coward then-"
  • Backwater: "You were?..... Now, I'm not going to pretend I process a delusion of grandeur.... But at least I don't fatally underestimate a chance for opportunity. And Princess Sparkle.... Was that oppertunity. The Storm King took your parents from you, your kingdom, your sense of self worth, potaintionlly your crazed sister if her claims for "inner power from aggression" stuff turned out inaccurate, and perhaps, international respect, given how cowerdly we were when he showed up. Wasn't those things, worth confronting him once again?"
  • Novo: "They are worth facing him again, it's just...... Look, I overreacted when it happened, alright? You have my word that I won't hesitate as much should the Storm Clan finally rear their horned heads."
  • Backwater: "Can you really be trusted with such a promise? I kinda have doubts. Espeically how you took Tidecaller's advice on how you prevented your sister's intended ascension."
  • Novo: "Back, enough!!"
  • Backwater: "Now, by all means, I'm glad Corono's not queen! Her reign would've been a return to... A less then glamarious age of our kind's history. Tidecaller made a good, Tide-Call, in convincing you to use your pseudo-enlightenment to coherse your weak-minded father to pick you instead! Tch. Too bad he couldn't stomach on how you had the opposite problem of being a coward and how such cowardice, cost him his dear friend! Because, at least Corono could've potentially killed off the Storm Clan in a measly week the minute that power-rushed idiot Sacana even pulled that scam before you would lose Abysswish! You? You did nothing but hide away, and gained no vengence for neither Abysswish, nor Tidecaller's little friend..... Ha-ha-ha-ha..... No question why you two aren't togather anymore. Is it because he regrets that Corono, distasteful as she was, would've prevented his friend's demise, and that of Abysswish's? Does he secretly blame himself for letting that crazed idiot do what he did to us? And he only blames you as a crutch, because blaming himself would've costed him his position?"
  • Novo: (Growling in the same fashion as when Twilight was caught and pulled out the real pearl and aimed it at Backwater who yelped a bit) ENOUGH, BACKUS WATERWAYS!!! IF MARITIME WOULDN'T'VE END UP KNOWING ABOUT IT SOONER OR LATER, I WOULD'VE LONG TURNED YOUR SORRY FISH GUTS INTO THE SEA SNAKE THAT YOU ARE AND BANISH YOU HERE AND NOW!! BUT MARITIME MIGHT GIVE ME A HARD TIME, FOR USING THE PEARL, EVEN ONTO SOMEONE WHO DESERVES IT, LIKE YOU!! So, I, am going to be generious enough to ask you, TO GET THE F*** OUT OF MY THRONEROOM!!"
  • Backwater:... (Regains composure as he cleared his throat).... Only because I want to. Just a little side note.... I may not have an ability to claim the throne for myself due to..... Poor public standing, but I will always settle for the next best thing:.... Seeing you being replaced with someone else. He/she doesn't have to be better or worse than you, they don't even nessersarly need to return seaponies back to our once grand purpose, though it would be a nice bonus..... In my eyes..... All they would need..... Is not being you..... Have fun complincating THAT, on the Sea-A-Bration. (Snickers wickedly as he swam away)"
  • Novo: (She became depressed and slided down onto her throne as Skystar came down the elevator)...
  • Skystar: UUGH! Smells like ciguatoxin in here!...... Mom?... Was that venomous Backwater in here?
  • Novo: "(Sarcasticly) No, I just desided to smoke some Sea Snake Venom drugs- (STERNLY) WHO DID YOU THINK WAS HERE?!"
  • Skystar: "..... Yikes...... Sorry, stupid queston...... Mom, you really need to stop letting him get to you like that."
  • Novo: "Don't you think I'm trying? If it wasn't for Maritime, I would've turned that slippery serpent into, a slippery serpent, AGES AGO?! But Maritime would count that as (Mocking Voice) "An abuse of my powers", (Normally), ALL because I got a WEE too angry about the Pearl being stolen?!"
  • Skystar: "Well you know he's why you became so bad tempered!"
  • Novo: "I can't help it?! He just runs his forked tongue off until he brings Tidecaller into this and-......"
  • Skystar: ".......... You still miss him, do you?"
  • Novo: "........ I'm trying so hard, to not think about him, but then, Backwater keeps reminding me, and then-"
  • Skystar: Mom, Mom... Mom, you do know why Backwater does that, right? He considers false seaponies like us unworthy to rule kingdoms like this, and he's using your... Unglamorous moments, against you. The key is not to let it get to you. Don't let what happened with Stepdad and Twilight make you his toy.
  • Novo: (Sighs) Well it won't be no easy feat. Tidecaller was someone who supported me until I made myself an excessive and selfish coward in his eyes by doing nothing to stop the Storm King's first wrath. Didn't help none that Backwater was tempting me to make detrimental sacrifices. (Sighs) If Corono were around, she'd be a better help than Backwater. Much as I disagree with her ways, I need to hand her this: She was so aggressive, she could pull anything off.
  • Skystar: Well, the impourent thing is to not let him get to you like that, anymore. Don't worry about the past anymore. Just focus on the present torwords a better future.
  • Novo:... You know, Sky? I'm glad to have a daughter like you. Your father would be so proud if he was still alive.
  • Skystat: "(Blushes) Uh, shucks, ma, if I had friends around here, I'd be embarised. (Hugs Novo)."

The Arrival of Captain Sea-Bitter

  • The Hippogriffs and the Seaponies were seen enjoying a great sea-a-bration with the merponies.
  • Queen Oceanious and King Barrior Reef were seen with Novo.
  • King Barrior Reef: "So, did you really broke up the pearl into bits for your people?"
  • Novo: "Well, yes and no. We actselly made a clone of the pearl, and broke the clone up. The real one is safely back in the jellyfish, as per-usual."
  • Queen Oceanious: "Well good. That pearl might be useful in a would-be crisis one day."
  • Novo: "Well, THAT, and it wouldn't be right to break something that belongs to Aybiswish...... I, already made myself look bad in her name enough as it is when I.... Acted the fool in front of Sparkle and friends."
  • King Barrior: "Now now, Novo, what's done was done. Sparkle has clearly held no ill wills and your people welcomed her the same."
  • Novo: "That's because they know the theft was because I provoked Sparkle into it. It doesn't count as anything of her own ill-will. It really didn't help that when the school fiascos happen, I still gave Sparkle sour dispositions."
  • Queen Oceanious: "Oh come now, you were only being worried for Silverstream's safety, you felt respondsable for your sister Ocean Flow's child."
  • Novo: "Yes, thank you for understanding. Now, I'm complicating on letting Twilight and her friends have seapony forms again."
  • King Barrior: "Well given that this "Tempest" pony had taken their Merpony forms, it'd be only fair to give them Seapony forms. I know miss Fluttershy misses having one herself. She was very fond of the ocean."
  • Novo: "Well, I know that, but, that would mean that I revoke my banishment on them, and-"
  • Queen Oceanious: "Well it's only fair to do so anyway. Because it's obvious that your people don't take that banishment seriously, being on a friendship mission aside."
  • Queen Novo: "Perhaps, your right, I- (A foghorn was heard)..... Huh?"
  • Everyone looks to see a sudden growing fog at the distent sea. A silluette of a large ship was seen.
  • King Barrior: ".... Perhaps, a dry-ice ship that got lost?"
  • The front of the ship was reveiled to have the front statue of a raging sea monster that was reveiled to be the shorce of the fog coming from it's mouth.
  • Azul: ".... Oh hey! I think they are the traveling sea-band I ordered!"
  • Suddenly, a beam of magic fired from the backdeck of the ship and formed a forcefiled around the beaches, concerning everyone....
  • Azul: "..... Of course, I could be a bit wrong?"
  • The arriving ship apporouched the beach and turned sideways, as Kludgetownian Pirates formed at the edges.
  • A frill lizard was seen juggling jarred bombs, chuckling!
  • A Seagull doing quick jumping jacks was seen as he looked pumped!
  • A Lacent Fish with a derpy expression and a crooked body was seen until he straightened up, seen along side a rockfish with a fat beer belly.
  • A very dumb-looking arm-cannon grizzly bear was seen gaffawing!
  • Bear: "They look silly! (Laughs stupidly!)."
  • A rock-bodied octopus showed up, only for the octopus head to climb off and move like a normal octopus, and the rock body turned out to be a large faced rock golum.
  • A Bullfrog wearing a "Kiss the Frog Cooker" apron was seen as he was slicing with a butcher's clever and a steak knife.
  • An actrobatic monkey slide down upside down on some rope.
  • A tree frog appeared from a puff of smoke like a ninja, armed with sharpen starfish-like ninja-stars!
  • A clumsy emu arrived with a Clam Helmit fell flat on his face and got up!
  • A transvylvainian sytile bat rose up with an undertaker turkey vulture friend, a ripped clothed wolf, and a sawfish with a litteral chainsaw nose as he revved it up!
  • A large anthromorthic, extremely buff Killer Whale walked up, holding an entire anchor weapon.
  • Two blue parrot pirates, one with a hook, another large and burly, as they stood next to a feminate leader weild two magic bued eel-like blades she swang around for a bit as a battle-damaged peacock tail flared.
  • Azul: "... Okay, a hundred percent more sure they're not the band I ordered."
  • A double peg-legged toucan came up clumsly besides her with help from a cobra with an eye-patch and a tailed hook as a huge scroop-like Lobster came up, holding a mega-phone for the Toucan to use.
  • Toucan: "(Takes it).... AHEM! This thing on? One-two-three?!.... Ya ain'ts nothing but a hound dog, doubting all the time!..... Okay, I think it works, mates! Attention, Various water varient ponies and/or.... (Looks at a written speech on his wings)..... Hyp-poo-Grr-Iffs! Today, ye all being drafted to join the hunt for a sea monster that wronged the captain we are serving for this time around! May we be presenting, (An old sea-captain unicorn with a peg-horn on him and a sea captain hat dressed like captain ahab walked up and reveiled himself as a pet sea eagle landed on him) Captain Sea-Bitter."
  • Captain Sea-Bitter takes the megaphone from the Toucan!
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "I'll take over from here, Skurvy-Beak. (To the beach with the mega-phone) Avast, sea and merponies alike. You all are being drafted to join in my hunt, to hunt down the sea beast that stolen my horn, the dreaded white overgrown litteral leafy sea dragon, The White Horn Sucker! The foul beast of hades took my horn from me, and now I use a magical peg-horn prostectic to have some access to magic! I desire an army of you so I can have your magic to use against the beast, so I can finally capture it, kill it, and display it's corpse for all of Equestria and other lands to see!"
  • Gubby gulped at this.
  • King Barrior: ".... Sorry captain, but we have no desires to go on a mad hunt for a naterol creature of nature."
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "THE WHITE HORN SUCKER AIN'T NO NATERAL BEAST?! It is not, a creature made by Gaia Everfree herself! But a monster, that came from a world, not even reckindiseable by us! It's been said, that it was an escaped creature of the fabled Space Ponies! Hence why it lives, in the legendy Magix Cubes Sea, where all Space Pony sightings are seen!"
  • The Sea and Merponies began to worry about that!
  • Novo: "..... You are as crazy as a Goldfish in saltwater if you think we're going to agree to this nonsense!"
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "That is why, your being drafted into this! Or better yet.... THIS BE A SHANGHAI?! Crew!? START, COLLECTING! (The Pirate Mercs charged out!)"
  • King Barrior Reef aimed to stop it, but his trident refused to work! Oceanious tried the same, but failed!
  • Novo: "Oh no! This is an anti-magic force field! Our magic's useless?!"
  • The pirates began to collect the sea and merponies in various ways!
  • Ocean Flow was seen taking Terramar to safety, along with a younger blue and yellow Hippogriff, but suddenly, the blade-eel grabs onto Ocean Flow and drags her away!
  • Terramar: "MOM?! (Grabs the little Hippogriff and starts making a run for it, but the two blue parrots intersect, as the peacock tailed leader arrived)"
  • Skystar charged to the rescue and saved Terramar, but the leader already grabbed the young Hippogriff!
  • Skystar: "SAVED YA COUSINS!! (Realsed that the young one was gone)..... WHERE'S TANG?!"
  • Terramar: "TANG?!"
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "..... Okay crew, that's enough. The Sheild will soon fade. We'll settle with the haul we got, and escape before they recover their power. (The crew did so as the ship disappeared into it's fog smoke once more, disappearing in time when the sheild died down)...."
  • Azul, Gubby, and the rest of Mareina's friends, Skystar and Terramar looked around. Only a stragler few were left, including the leaders.
  • Golden Speed: "..... Worse, party crashers, EVER!"
  • Terramar: ".... (Breaks free from Skystar and flew all the way to Novo and the King and Queen of the Merponies) WE HAVE TO HELP THEM?!"
  • Novo: "How can we? That crazy captain has unquestionablely great deals of magic that surpassed even the Merpony King and Queen! We were helpless to stop him."
  • Terramar: "..... Then what are we to do? You know Tang has bad memory skills! She won't last long!"
  • Skystar arrived!
  • Skystar: "Uh, duh! Remember that we know six certain ponies that defeated the Storm King and saved the Merponies?"
  • Mareina's friends swam up!
  • Watery: "Well there you go. Problem solved."
  • Young Yeller: "In fact, why not see to get the Lodgers involved for good measure since this is the Magix Cubes Seas we're talking about?"
  • Novo: "... Then do it. Go to Equestria and seek Sparkle and friends out! You can't let that crazy captain take our people to those cursed seas! Neither party might never come back."
  • Terrimer, Skystar, and Mareina's friends raced off to do so!
  • Novo looked on worried.....
  • Oceanious:... I'm proud of you, Novo.
  • Novo: ".... It's, not like I have a choice, really. Also, I heard how they're exberts at fighting misfited gangs of pirates, so....."
  • King Barrior: "I see your still not exactly sure about this. Fair enough. But a least it's a step in the right direction."
  • Novo: Know that she's still not allowed in Seaquestria for the time being unless it's a friendship mission or emergency.
  • King Barrier: Well you helped fix up Equantica, so it's not like they'll miss much. Just hope those that got captured aren't in too bad a scrape on that ship.

Sea-Bitter's Ship

Shipdeck.

  • The Captured Sea and Merponies were circled-in by the pirate mercs.
  • Sea-Bitter walked in.
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "(Examining the lot)....... Ugh. Prima, are ye sure these lilly livered louts have the sea legs to be my needed guides to the Magix Cube Seas?"
  • The figure unmasked herself as she reveils her beautiful but scared face.
  • Prima: "You have my promise sir, if any creature knows the Cube Seas more then any creature of Equestria, it's them."
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "(Looks at the captured group again).... Tch. They'll do fer now. (Addressing the Sea and Merponies) Allright, ya future figureheads! As per the shanghai-ing, yer part of me crew now, and on this ship, we are going to sail to the Magix Cube Seas. It'll be grueling, mind-numbing, and repetitive.... Like, daytime television!"
  • Wise cracking Seapony: ".... Will we be getting business cards? (Captain Sea-Bitter magicly frys the Seapony and left him to turn into a litteral fishstick)...... And ironicly, my name is Slappy Fishstick."
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "..... Let that teach ya a lesson. His wounds will heal, but I think the point be clear. I run a tight-ship here! You don't speak when not spoken to, you obey instructions as instructed, you will not be outside the brig lest I command it, and above all else, any trouble maker found on the ship of the Fog Swimmer, will be flogged! With a whip laced with steaming hot tartar sauce, and yer hide used to tease sharks with?!"
  • The Sea and Merponies fearfully wince at this!
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: ".... But, to prove that I'm no malevolent captain, obey the rules squarely, and help me finally kill, (Brings out a picture of an exaggeratedly monsterious Leaf-Dragon like Sea Dragon monster) THE WHITE HORN SUCKER, ye will be taken back home, and yer memories of our explot will be erased so you don't have to live with the haunted memory, of killing a living thing. Plus, ye do some ship chores on the deck well enough, you get paid with the finest cooked seaweed and sea grass our ship's chef has to offer, (The Bullfrog chef bowed excraigently), and, if your extra good, under the supervision of an escourt, you get to hang out on deck and look at the seas. In concludsion, I be like a sea god. Respect my commandments, you assend to heavenly treatment. Cross me, and I send you to the kind of punishment, even Horsey Ed's Locker wouldn't accept! Tis be clear?"
  • Slappy Fishstick: ".... Transparent as a swimming pool, sir."
  • Captain Sea-Bitter: "Good. Now, Prima, exchourt the lot to their rooms in the brig. (Prima snapped her fingers as the merc pirates proceed to do so)..... I'll be in my captain qourters if there be some, miscommunications, Prima. (Walks off to the qourters.)"
  • The two blue parrots arrouched Prima.
  • Hooked Parrot: "..... Ye be sure this it be right to work for this pony?"
  • Big Blue Parrot: "I know we be mercs and that questionable hirers are an expected occupentional hazord, but the Magix Cube Seas? Just to hunt down a overgrown leafy seahorse?"
  • Prima: "Ace, Brutus, I promise you, the wealth this old embittered horse has is worth the risk."
  • Ace (Hooked Parrot): "But did we REALLY need to shanghai Seaponies and Merponies?"
  • Prima: "Look, I'm not thrilled of it either, but the captain insisted on having sea exberts. And those sea and merponies fit the discription."
  • Brutus (Big Blue Parrot): "Look, I trust you, Prima, but this old sea-coot is what I have problems with. Nothing ever ends will with a captain overly-determined to hunt down a giant sea creature, espeically if it's a sea dragon!"
  • Ace: "And it's not just the creature that worries me. It's the damn beast's home. And, the Squid People."
  • Prima: "The correct term is Krakons."
  • Ace: "Yes, but besides the point, Lady Prima. What if we end up dangering these aqua equines to that place with whatever's there?"
  • Prima: "Look, I promise you, as long as the Sea and Merponies avoid upsetting the captain, no harm will come to them."
  • Brutus: "Well what makes ya sure finding the White Horn Sucker is their only purpose here? What's to say he ain't also planning to use them like worms to a fish with the beast?"
  • Prima: "The captain said it only eats horns and magic."
  • Brutus: "Magic eater aside, that doesn't make it less endangering miss. I heard the process tends to be painful when it sucks you dry of magic. That's why Sea-Bitter looks like he's limping while walking. It's not just the horn he lost."
  • Prima: ".... Look, I'll talk with the captain about what risks he's allowed to take, okay? But if he ducts our pay for it, I'll make you two scrub the base for 9 months."
  • Ace: "Thanks Prima."

(Later...) Marenia and Tang's Cell

  • Marenia: Ugh! Just my blubbing luck, we get captured by crazy pirates, during a seapony-merpony summit!! Derek has been waiting for the chance to have a baby with me for a while!!
  • Tang: Oooooooh, you're having a baby?!
  • Marenia:... Yes.
  • Tang: Well, I'm happy for you. Is the baby kicking?
  • Marenia:... I'm not pregnant yet.
  • Tang: Oh...... What were we talking about?
  • Marenia:... Wha?
  • Tang:... What were we talking about?
  • Marenia: WHAT ARE YOU, STUPID?! We were just talking about me getting back to Derek! If this is some kind of joke, I'm not laughing!!
  • Tang: "(Starts wimpering).... Don't yell at me!"
  • Seaspray: "(From his cell) Uh, excuse me, Princess Marenia? I should inform you that Young Tang suffers from short-term memory loss. She can't help being like that."
  • Mareina was surprised by that!
  • Mareina: "..... WELL WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TOLD ME EARLIER?!"
  • Seaspray: "Well, she would've told you herself if you hadn't yelled at her!"
  • Marenia:... JUST GREAT, NOW I'M AN ASS!! Way to go, Marenia, you won the treasure chest for being the BEST DAMN BITCH IN THE SEA!!! Tang, do yourself a favor and punch me! I deserve it!!
  • Tang:... You really want me to?
  • Marenia: WELL IT'S THE BEST YOU CAN DO!!! Hit or claw me as hard as you can!! DO IT!! (Gets a comically crazed expression)...
  • Tang:... You clearly need some rehabilitation.
  • Marenia: Wha- (Tang touched her as she immediately shifted from stressed to sad as she cried)... Wha-What did you do to me?! (Sobs)... Why do I feel so scared for Derek and myself?! Why... Am I feeling sorry for you?
  • Seaspray: Well, Tang has empathic abilities like much of her royal blood. That means she can bend emotions and memory. Ironic, really.
  • Marenia:... I... I'm so sorry for yelling at you. I'm just so stressed about being kidnapped by this Ahab-inspired lunatic and a collection of pirate mercs!
  • Seaspray: "Well it's not exactly a trip to Candyland on the Fun Cruise for the rest of us either, Mareina!"
  • Tang: "It's okay. Let's start over..... Hi, I'm Tang.... And don't worry, it's not me forgetting this time."
  • Mareina: "Oh, uh, ahem! Princess Mareina Typhoonia of Equantica and Destiny Islands."
  • Tang: So, um... How do we get out of here?
  • Marenia:... This is going to grow on me.
  • Seaspray: "But in all fairness, that's a good pont. How DO we evacuate from this vessel?"
  • Ocean Flow: "That's the thing. We can't. This cells are covered in alarm runes. They'll flare if we leave our cells without their caster's permission, which I guess it's either the captain or that Peacock lady."
  • Merpony 1: "What're they gonna do to us?"
  • Mareina: "Well based on what that captain said, he wants us to help hunt down what is basicly the equilent to Moby Dick! This, "White Horn Sucker". But for something intermediate, I guess he would also have us do cabin boy chores and do things like cleaning his ship, scraping off innosent barnicles, polish their cannons and/or other weapons, shine their boots if applicable, ya know, the usual stuff."
  • Seapony 1: "SO BASICLY WE'RE SLAVES?!"
  • Mareina: "D-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-Don't worry! It might only be until he.... Finally gets to the Horn Sucker."
  • Seapony 2: "BUT WHAT IF HE NEVER FINDS IT?!"
  • Merpony 2: "And say that he does, what if he still keeps us around as slaves?! He might never let us go?!"
  • Seapony 3: "And another thing?! I'm against being made to kill another innosent creature?!"
  • Merpony 3: "Uh, relitive innosence, cause, well, tecnecally, that thing DID ate the captain's horn."
  • Seapony 4: "OH LIKE THAT GIVES HIM THE RIGHT TO KIDNAP US?! I THOUGHT LAND PONIES WERE SUPPOSE TO BE NICE?!"
  • Merpony 4: "It could be obviously seen that his purity's compromised?!"
  • Seapony 5: "Be that as it may, you would think the Ponies would keep guys like that on a tighter leash?!"
  • Merpony 5: "Aw don't start expecting perfection from them?!"
  • The Sea ponies and the Merponies began to argue!
  • Seaspray: "..... ALL OF YOU SHUT UP?! (The contained Sea and Merponies did so.)..... I know you're all scared, but we mustn't turn against each other, nor turn against the Ponies of Equestria. Nor, should we lose hope. Now, it's clear we can't save ourselves, HOWEVER, that doesn't mean it's a hopeless situation. That sea captain clearly didn't capture all of us, likely because his forcefield, in his weaken magic prowless, was under a certain limit before it would've died out, where as a result, it forced him to leave the rest of our respective kinds back on the beach. An alarm will be sound, and heroes will come to rescue us."
  • Seapony 6: "But that's the thing! This guy is Storm King smart! He'll just conjure another forcefield and those pirates will overwealm the Lougers and the Main 7! Then THEY'LL be captured too!"
  • Merpony 6: "And even worse, they might not make it in time?! We could already be within the Magix Cube Seas by now?!"
  • Tang: "Uh, excuse me?... What's the Magix Cube Seas?"
  • Silence.....
  • Ocean Flow: "..... You, don't know, Tang?"
  • Mareina: "Well, I, kinda don't know myself. I mean, I had learn about it in Equantica's schools during our kingdom's banishment to Destiny Islands' oceans, but..... I haven't exactly paid them much mind since we weren't in the World of Equestria, so..."
  • An Elderly Seapony crawled up to the bars of his cell.
  • Elderly Seapony: "..... How almost blissful that the youth are fortunate to not know of the Magix Cube Seas."
  • Seaspray: "Ugh, Elder Stillus Waters, can we please keep it that way? Tang is too young for the Cubes' story."
  • Stillus: "Well too bad! No thanks to the captain, we're being taken there! They may as well understand what may soon to become our new home once Kala Mari has her way!"
  • Seaspray: "OLD MAN, PLEASE DON'T SPEAK OF THAT DELUDED SEA WITCH?!"
  • Sea Beak: Who's that now?
  • Seaspray: (Sighs) This is Stillus Waters, a former Navy member who retired after being crazed during an arrival to the mysterious Magix Cube Seas. He was once known as Stillwater, but-
  • Stillus: "DON'T EVER CALL ME THAT?!"
  • Seaspray: "... But obviously he grew to hate that name."
  • Mareina: "..... Was the Cube Seas really that bad?"
  • Stillus: Heed my words, princess! Once you enter them seas, you will never be the same.
  • Marenia: I am an Alicorn Merpony. I can handle it.
  • Stillus: That's just what me partner said. And guess what?
  • Maerenia: "I, don't think I want to-"
  • Stillus: "HE'S GONE INSANE?!"
  • Marenia: Well, what exactly was it like there?
  • Stillus: Like heaven and hell had a baby and was raised by Equestrians. It's both bliss and doom at the same time. Me partner and I were among the lucky ones. Most, weren't so lucky. That place is guaranteed to make a creature disappear forever.
  • Tang:... So where'd the name come from?
  • Sky Beak:... Random question.
  • Stillus: Well, lass, it's because it was where the famed relic called the Magix Cube was created. Them krakens of ancient past made it as a superweapon derived from chaos magic and Equestrian magic to protect from both during Kala's half-son Squirk's reign.
  • Seaspray: WE DO NOT SPEAK OF HIM EITHER!!!
  • Stillus: I just did. Deal with it. That accursed cube was a curse that had a mind of it's own that took over the entire territory in anti-magic storms. Nothing was ever the same. Sea beings alike dread going there.
  • Tang:... Dread going where?
  • Stillus: The Magix Cube Seas.
  • Tang: What's that?
  • Stillus: The, the thing I was just talking about! What's wrong with the brat?!
  • Seaspray: "Short-term memory loss!"
  • Stillus:.... Oh. Well.... Not telling the tale again. I don't like repeating myself. You guys'll have to tell her, but heed my warnings lest you wish to end up like me partner.
  • Stillus crawls back deep into his cell.
  • Mareina: ".... Why is that mean old creep allowed to live among you?"
  • Seaspray: "He won't take banishment and exiles seriously."
