Real Tests with Unreal Problems is the 50th Episode of Season 3A of the SpongeBob and Friends Adventures Chronicles series. While the rest of the Mane Six are busy with the trial concerning the fate of former-Headmistress Shineflare, Rainbow Dash discovers that she isn't the only one not doing well in the 'learning' of the Wonderbolt history department since Lightning Dust was reaccepted into Wonderbolt Academy. Lightning Dust, despite being a bit jealous that Rainbow Dash is already a Wonderbolt, is all about speed, and of course, while not an idiot, learning about the Wonderbolts' story is not what one calls a good talent. Naturally, Dust will basically learn like how Rainbow learned: through flying, but because she doesn't do it completely, and does it mostly through experience and mind, they let her go through a simulated historical journey as she gets to experience the Wonderbolt history by witnessing it as it had occurred. But while this is going on, the Wonderbolt Headquarters is getting routinely attacked by thought-to-be-defeated enemies in the form of deadly gargoyles, which keep attacking in the night when they are not stone. These particular gargoyles are under the command of thought-to-be-vanquished foes Man-Vulture and King George, followed by a group of trigger-happy personal henchmen that would give the Team Fortress Mercenaries an inferiority complex, and commandeered by a rogue brother of Spitfire, Acidburn, plan to take down the Wonderbolts for good through any means necessary, so when they plan to secretly make Dust flunk her test by sabotaging all contributions of Lightning's friends, Dust will learn absolutely nothing, and therefore, will flunk and lose her chance to get into the Wonderbolts for good, leaving her vulnerable for Man-Vulture to manipulate into his perfect destruction force. Luckily, The Shell Lodgers were around to aid in Shineflare's case, and offer some of their members to help the Wonderbolts stand up to this threat as they begin planning to counter-sabotage any attempts, take down Man-Vulture, Acidburn, and the gargoyle armada, and secure Lightning's future.

Chapter 1: Shineflare's Case/Lightning Dust's Learning Report

Equestria, Twilight's Castle

  • Twilight:... Well, girls, you'll be glad to know that the case concerning Shineflare is going to be starting tomorrow.
  • Applejack: Thank Luna! After she was single-handedly responsible for a dragon hating ponies, then I called that the last straw! I say the bitch deserved it.
  • Rarity: Applejack, dear, I would advise that you not use such foul words about Shineflare... Even if it is warrentied. We all know why she's like this to begin with, don't we?
  • Applejack: It's still no excuse to treat non-ponies harshly, though.
  • Twilight: Whoa, AJ, easy! As much as she is a jerk to non-ponies, can we at least sympathize with her? She was among many victims of Malevolent Flames after all, if not also a pony slavery group. How can anypony stay sane after going through stuff like that?
  • Applejack: ".... Well, to be fair, I'll at least give Shineflare some points for not being MEANINGLESSLY racist, but I am still against her for letting her tragity be used as an excuse to hurt others! I tend to frown at folks like that!"
  • Starlight was nerviously smiling.
  • Applejack: ".... Present company excluded, Starlight."
  • Rarity: "In all fairness darling, she wasn't a 100% foul. The fact she saved Canterlot from Roughber and congradulated Peng for not subsiding to his mother do show redeeming traits."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Yeah, but they're like finding diamonds in a pile of cow poop! You would often be too disgusted to even care about that."
  • Pinkie: "They're also like the yummy strawberries on top of a gross icky yucky mud ice cream sundae!"
  • Twilight: "Ok! So maybe she does have ALOT of work cut out for us! But let's remember that she's still a pony, and still has purity. It just needs a chance to shine more then her negitive feelings."
  • Applejack: "I don't object to that Twi, but I ain't exactly holdin' mah breath either. Shineflare is likely to still be a might resentful to mythic critters for awhile."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Well let's at least be glad she won't be able to find a new Pred Judu Des without her former council position. As well as the fact the other council ponies will finally think straight without being influenced by Shiny-butt."
  • Spike: "But just to be safe, let's do a roll-call on all things we covered to make sure things go smoothly for once. First item on the list: Is Shineflare kept from using magic to escape or cause any form of unexpected trouble?"
  • Twilight: "WAY ahead of you on that Spike."
  • Spike: "Next item on the list: Are any previous mythic being and creature enemies of Shineflare prevented from taking advantage of this to seek horrorable vengence?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Aw, yeah! Me and the Wonderbolts' totally kicked their tails!"
  • Spike: "3rd item: Did we make sure Shineflare doesn't have a surprise living relitive that would've sought to free her?"
  • Applejack: "With granny's help, I was able to find two of them, both cousins. Both were a-plotin' to bust Shineflare out, so I made sure the royal guard knows about them. Thanks for having your brother there to make sure the guards do it right, Twi."
  • Twilight: "Your welcome."
  • Spike: "4th item: Did we made sure Discord will behave himself?"
  • Fluttershy: "Black Kat was more then happy to take Discord on vacation with her to that Paradisa place. I just hope Discord doesn't start to feel too mischivious."

Paradisa

  • Discord: (At a Hawaiian-style party on the beach performing a magic trick with Kat) Alright, everyone! I shall now saw my lovely assistant in half!
  • Guy #1: YOU'RE BOTH DRACONEQUUI! THE TRICK IS SO OBVIOUS, IT SUCKS!!
  • Black Kat: I told you to just go with comedy!
  • Discord:...Well, if it's laughs they want, then let's give them a mouthful! (Dresses up like a familiar In Living Color Jim Carrey character) BOY, this party is an accident waiting to happen!... LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING!! (Approaches a torch) Let's just say you're about to serve some apple liquor to a lovely couple! And you're working a night shift, and you're COMPLETELY drowsy! You become so drowsy, you don't pay attention to the cork, you pop it out, and BOOM... (Liquor splashes onto the torch as it blazes the wood) Next thing you know, it's like Zozobra's having a little cookout! (Cackles as everyone panics)... EVERYBODY REMAIN CALM, I AM A FIRE MARSHALL! LET ME JUST PUT OUT THE FIRE! (Pours the liquor on the fire as it explodes, literally turning him and the wooden structure cartoonishly into ash)... Oops!... Oh well!... I guess this is why you never serve alcohol in a party surrounded with fire. (Laughs, and the whole audience ends up laughing)
  • Guy #2: Now THAT'S funny! (They laughed)
  • Black Kat: (Sighs)

Equestria

  • Fluttershy:... So, Rainbow Dash, to suddenly break from an impourent list, how has life been since you became a Wonderbolt?
  • Rainbow Dash: One word: Awesome! Though I haven't had a mission as of yet, Spitfire gave me a chance to teach at the Wonderbolt Academy. Though, I've had a little problem concerning... A familiar friend.

Wonderbolt Academy

  • Lightning Dust: YOU'RE A WONDERBOLT NOW?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: Yeah. I've been one for a couple of months.
  • Lightning Dust: "...... AW NOW I REALLY WISH THAT MESS WITH THE FUCKING TORNADO NEVER HAPPENED!? THEN I WOULD'VE BEEN ABLE TO GET ALONG WITH YOU!?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Only one wonderbolt member retired that day, so, even then-"
  • Lightning Dust: "BESIDES THE POINT?! IT'S CLEAR I NEED TO DO MORE TO PROVE THAT I CHANGED FROM THAT SCREW UP?! I am just glad that stupid story about the Chirstail Empire Seige never happened. I WON'T STOP UNTIL I PROVEN MY WORTH!?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Ya kinda did when the Gala fiasco happened and-"
  • Lightning Dust: "EVEN MORE THEN THAT!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Well, luckly for you, Spitfire's team aren't the only wonderbolts. They're the Wonderbolt Alphas. There's still the Betas, Deltas, Etas, Episions, Omegas, Sigmas, Zetas, Thetas, and-"
  • Lightning Dust: "Those teams are fine and all, but I want to be with the Alphas! Not just because I'm a huge fan of Spitfire's legacy, but because..... I consider you a great friend, Dash. Ok, there was that, REALLY awkword fallout, but, we patched up, and now we're great friends again! I always wanted to get involved with the Wonderbolts with you! Your THE Rainbow Dash of the Elements of Harmony! You saved Equestia from threats even the entire Wonderbolt squads can't stop! It would suck not being in the same squad as you! You had any idea how badass an element of harmony hero and a member of the legendary dust clan on the same wonderbolt team would be like?! IT WOULD BE TALKED ABOUT FOR GENERATIONS?! I WILL NOT MISS OUT ON THAT BECAUSE OF MILLATERRY POLITICS! I WILL PROVE MY WORTH AND EARNED THAT LEGACY!?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Look, it's WAY more complincated then that and-"
  • Lightning Dust zoomed off!
  • Lightning Dust: "I WILL PROVE THAT WORTH!?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "...... Oh boy."

Twilight's Castle.

  • Rainbow Dash: "So I'm afraid she's back to her trying to hard self and might end up making herself look bad again."
  • Rarity: "Have you tried making Spitfire aware of this?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Last time I did that, Lightning Dust got kicked out and she wanted to kill me for it, remember?!"
  • Applejack: "That time was different. This time could mean just having Spitfire stop her from doing something bone-headed."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Trust me on this! The only things I am ever actselly afraid of, is ANYTHING ACTSELLY CAPABLE TO KICK MY ASS?! And though I like Dust as a friend and respect her as member of the fabled Dust clan, I AM AFRAID OF WHAT SHE CAN DO!? REMEMBER HOW BADLY SHE KICKED MY ASS BACK IN THE GALA FIASCO?!"

Flashback.

  • Rainbow Dash panics, and tried to sneak away, but it was too late, Lightning saw her!
  • Lightning: "YOU?!"
  • Rainbow Dash gulped.
  • Rainbow Dash: "Uh, hi Lightning..... Uh, no hard feelings?"
  • Lightning grabbed a rock, and crushed it with her hooves in one swift crush!
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Aw, s***."
  • Rainbow Dash zoomed out of there, Lighting followed in fast persuit all the way to Canterlot causing want and destruction to various objects in the way of the chase, to the panic of Canterlot residents!
  • Rainbow Dash: "Come on Rainbow Dash, you need to lose her somehow! There has to be one thing not even she is capable of..."
  • Lighting: YOU CAN'T KEEP OUTFLYING ME FOREVER!!! YOUR FLANK IS MINE!!!!!
  • Rainbow Dash remembered the Sonic rainboom! This is here only chance to lose Lightning!
  • Rainbow Dash started to boost up more speed!
  • Rainbow Dash starts to go faster and higher above Canterlot!
  • But Lighting caught her before she got any higher and faster and did the Sizemic Dust Toss!
  • BLAM!
  • Rainbow Dash is seen laid into the ground.
  • Luckly, Rainbow Dash is still alive, but wounded greatly. the feathers in her wings have been vaporised, holes are seen on her skin, she got bruzed in her eye, and Rainbow Dash was bleeding in the eyes and mouth.
  • Rainbow Dash was in a realm of disbeif..... Someone, actselly outpassed the Sonic Rainboom. It was her only hope.... and she was robbed of it.
  • Rainbow Dash struggled back up to her feet.
  • Lightning Dust only flouted above the weakened Rainbow Dash.
  • Lightning: "Your more duriable then I thought. I once did the Sizemic Dust Toss on a rouge Centaur on my way here, and all that survived was a piece of his armor... Shoulder blade if I can recall correctly."
  • Rainbow Dash relucently realised she was in no condition to fight, let alone to continue running. She had no choice but to surrender.... But wait, she realised something. Did Lightning Dust just said "Sizemic Dust Toss"? That legendary move is known only to the legendary dust clan...... Then it hit Rainbow...... She had wronged a member of that very clan. A family, with Pegicious horses in the family generations and genes, and birthed the legendary Shining Dust of the wonderbolts and the famed milliterry hero Thunder Dust.
  • Rainbow Dash coughed, as she is about to speak....

Present

  • Pinkie: Oh, yeah, you lost outright to her.
  • Rainbow Dash: EXACTLY! Granted, she could've been a good Wonderbolt had it not been for that recklessness of hers, but I don't think I can even SURVIVE a jealousy attack!
  • Twilight: Well, SOMEPONY has to stop her from doing something reckless! So if YOU won't do it, I will!
  • Twilight aimed to teleport Lightning Dust here, but Spike stopped her!
  • Spike: "Actselly, teleporting her isn't nessersary! She and some new friends are already around the area."

Elsewhere, In the near-by hill near Apple Acres.

  • Lightning Dust: "Lo and behold, wonderbolt hopefuls! (A crudely crated contraption was seen), The Lightning Daredevil!.... Patent Pending. The Ultamate in Wonderbolt Impressing Stunt Tecknowagey!"
  • Chow Mein, A Harpy, A Griffon, A Hippogriff, and a nerdy Spyro-Recolor Dragon were seen.
  • Harpy: "..... Pretty sure it's the ONLY in Wonderbolt Impressing Stunt Tecknowagey, Dust."
  • Griffin: "Oh come on, Harpz, at least she's trying!"
  • Hippgriff: "I don't know, sis..... That looks dangerious."
  • Nerdy Spyro-Eqse Dragon: "Not to mention a hulking violation of every safety proceedure known to pony and dragon kind."
  • Lightning Dust: "(Gets on the contraption) Trust me guys, this thing is garrentied to get us noticed."
  • Chow Mein: "Aw come on, Dust. You know your parents don't approve of you doing stupid stunts."
  • Lightning Dust: "Trust me, this will turn out fine."
  • Harpz: "..... Why not? I'm up for some dare-deviling. You game Gem, Bronze Pen, Drokre?"
  • Gem the griffin: "Hell ya! You coming bro?"
  • Bronze: "Oh dear. I know this won't end well."
  • Drokre: "The rate of failure is at least 50-50. Depending on circumstances."
  • The 4 climbed on.
  • Lightning Dust: "Anyone wants a deminstraightion?"
  • Chow Mein rolled his eyes as he climbed on.
  • Lightning Dust: "It's REAL easy! It's just the matter of being able to press this button and-"
  • Lightning Dust mistakeningly pressed the button and activated the rocket like contraption.....
  • Drokre: "..... Premature launghes are commenly known to end in failure...."
  • Lightning Dust: "...... Ohhhhh."
  • Chow Mein: "Well, Dust, when I say I told ya so, I-"
  • The Contraption blasts off with the five on it as they scream as music started to play!
Mud - North Mississippi Allstars Barnyard 2006

Mud - North Mississippi Allstars Barnyard 2006

  • During the song, after a series of wacky moments simular to that of the Start of the Barnyard movie, Lightning Dust, Harpz, Gem, Bronze, Drokre and Chow Mein all got off the contraption high in the sky!
  • Chow Mein desperately grabbed onto Bronze!
  • Drokre desperately tried to keep stedy!
  • Lightning Dust, Gem, and Harpz were the only one who maintained position after completing actrobatic tricks!
  • Lightning Dust: "(Sees the out of control contrapsion)..... OH NONONONONONONONONONO?! WE HAVE TO STOP THAT THING BEFORE IT HITS TOWN!?"
  • The Group chased after it and tried to intervent it, but every time, the unpredictable mess turns at random directions until it looks as if it'll get away!
  • Twilight: (Teleports to the front of the rocket, and opens a portal that sends it to space, and causes it to explode)
  • Lightning:... I... I... I... (Sighs in relief)... That was a close one!
  • Rainbow Dash: I should say so!
  • Lightning Dust gasped at this....
  • Lightning Dust nerviously chuckles...
  • Harpz: "(Gives Chow Mein back) Lates Dust!"
  • Lightning's new friends vamoose!

Twilight's Castle

  • Lightning: Look, guys, I can explain everything-
  • Twilight: Lightning, calm down! We need to talk!
  • Lightning:... Alright, what Rainbow Dash told you, don't take it the wrong way! I was merely-
  • Applejack: Lightning, if we hadn't appeared, you would've made the same mistake you made at Wonderbolt Academy. Not to mention that crazy contraption could've caused serious property damage, or I shudder what could be worse then that! We need to end this jealous edge of yours.
  • Lightning: Look... I just wanted to prove that I can be as successful as Wonderbolt Team Alpha! Now that Rainbow Dash is a Wonderbolt, what better way to be in a grand legacy than to be her partner in Team Alpha? It's going to make history!
  • Rarity: Lightning, dear, there is more to life than just popularity! You changed because you made a bold sacrifice. You're an Element of Harmony now.
  • Lightning: Well, tecnecally speaking, YOU aren't anymore! You've got Rainbow abilities that make you look like rockstars! You girls can kick smug asses all over the place! As for me? I've barely made some progress in proving that I'm qualified to be as successful as Rainbow Dash!
  • Twilight:... And why is that?
  • Rainbow Dash:... Lightning, is there something you wanna tell us? What exactly happened before we met?
  • Lightning:... I... Uh... I was just finished with a test.
  • Rainbow Dash: Really? Because I could tell it didn't go well given the fact that you were like...

Flashback

  • Lightning: (It's seen she's got a D- in the test, and when Rainbow Dash comes in, she is surprised, hides the paper in her bed, and smiles) HEEEEY, RAINBOW DASH! You'll NEVER believe how good I've been doing in my classes! It's a blast! By the time my exam to get into the Wonderbolt Reserves comes, I'll finally be ready to make my family proud! I... Uh... What's with the getup?

Present

  • Lightning:... Uhhhh... It was just a momentary surprise, that's all!
  • Rainbow Dash: Lightning, I know when you're lying to me. I learned from Rarity to know when a pony is full of s***, and you bare ALOT of those signs! Hestitation, saying "Uhh", then actselly saying something, those are commen lie tropes! ESPIECALLY for amaturs! I want the full truth, and as an official Wonderbolt, I am asking for that right now, and that's an order!
  • Lightning:... Alright, FINE! Here's the truth! I'm not keeping up on my grades since I was reinstated! Even though I am not entirely a reckless mess anymore, BARRING certain events, I'm still not exactly up to stuff to the kind of ponies that got into the Wonderbolts. I just... Didn't want to let you down now that you're a legend.
  • Spike:... Wait... You have troubles with studying?
  • Rainbow Dash: I should've known something was up. If you ask me, all she's been doing is horsing around doing dumb stuff, and just watches the Wonderbolts History Movie because she thinks it actually represents the REAL history! I mean, seriously, it took ME a while to figure out that movie was just historical fiction.
  • Twilight: Duh, that's why I said we couldn't watch that when YOU had the same damn problem!
  • Lightning Dust: "Wait..... The Wonderbolts History Movie was fiction?"
  • Rarity: "Historical fiction. It means that, while it's BASED on real events, Ponywood made adjustments to make the film, um, easier to swallow for the unenlighten masses, or else it may as well should've been a documentary."
  • Lightning Dust: "..... In that case, I..... AW, S***!? NO WONDER I'VE BEEN FLUNKING?!"
  • Pinkie: OOOOHHH, another pony in need of some learning? I'll get Vinyl and the boys!
  • Twilight: No, no, no, Pinkie, that won't be necessary!
  • Lightning Dust:... You mean to tell me that Rainbow Dash was once a loser with history?
  • Rainbow Dash: Look who's talking! I could ask YOU the same thing!
  • Lightning Dust: Look, I remember a LOT of things from the classes!
  • Rainbow Dash: You couldn't remember the goddamn alphabet!
  • Pinkie: OH, (Laughs) WHO DOESN'T KNOW THE ALPHABET?!?
  • Rainbow Dash:... It was a figure of speech!
  • Lightning Dust: "DO TOO?! A B C D, E F...... W X Y AND Z?!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "YOU JUST SAID THE START AND SKIPPED TO THE END?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "Hey, I didn't say I was an Alphabet wizard! I was more of the athletic jock in my school days, so sue me! (Sighs) Ok, all horseplay aside, one, I remember the goddamn alphabet, even the ones INBETWEEN the start and the end! Secondly, I DO remember!"
  • Rainbow Dash: Oh yeah? Well, how did the Wonderbolts originate?
  • Lightning: It was just a police force founded by a kickass general who wanted to fight crime and-
  • Rainbow Dash: (Does this)

Rainbow's Reaction

  • Lightning Dust:... What did I get wrong?
  • Rainbow Dash: (Sighs) Well, no wonder you got jealous and nearly made a mistake that cost you a last chance to be a Wonderbolt! You're an inexperienced, ignorant, envious little pupil who needs a proper tutor!
  • Lightning Dust: What're you talking about, of course I'm not! How do you think I got into the Wonderbolt Academy the FIRST time?
  • Rainbow Dash: Well, your heritage to Thunder Dust and the entire Dust clan, obviously, but that's not enough! I can assure you that your dad and your grandpa Shining Dust didn't spend their free time flying haphazardly through towns high-fiving his fans like Po would!
  • Po: HEY! (The Lodgers came in)
  • Rainbow Dash: Oh, hey, guys! Wow, you all are pretty silent.
  • Icky: "Yeah, we came in about the Shineflare case and we also came to check up on you guys cause we saw a freaky poorly constructed scrapheap appearing from nowhere and blowing up! We came to see if you guys knew about it."
  • Lightning: (Everyone pointed at her)... (Shrugs)
  • Trixie:.... Wow. Trixie figured that the Dust girl has risen above that sort've nonsense now.
  • Icky: "Don't ya just hate character relapses inbetween an episode from season 2 all the way to now?"
  • Lightning: Long story short, I was jealous of Rainbow Dash finally becoming a Wonderbolt, and I wanted to be her partner... Until I ended up going too far with it.
  • Applejack: "And she was lucky that contraption never made it to town, NOR did considerable damage to Sweet Apple Acres."
  • Shifu: Well, what's this we heard about Lightning being inadequate with her studies?
  • Rainbow Dash: She says she's not been doing well in them ever since she was reinstated. She needs to be taught.
  • Lightning: (Sighs) Well, yeah, I got issues. So what? At least I might get better.
  • Twilight: Just expecting to get better is not going to get you anywhere. With the kind of habits you go through, I highly doubt you'll make it by your exam.
  • Iago: "Trust us Lady, the Wonderbolts aren't the kind of people that accept dumbasses! That runs the risk of them making mistakes that poison the team's names!"
  • Pinkie: "But what about the time they failed to save Rarity by being smacked by her frailing hooves? Or not being able to stop Spike as an adult raging dragon? Or when they were quick to ditch Soaren in faver of Rainbow Dash? Or when Wind Rider framed Dashie and the wonderbolts just quickly assumed Dashie did the crime and-"
  • Iago: "THOSE, have some ounce of justification. The Wonderbolts were not able to plan better on rescuing Rarity or were able to properly combat Spike other then just giving him a hair-cut on his skales! What happened in Rainbow Falls and the Investigation episodes were just moments of poor judgement."
  • Fluttershy: "There's uh, still the matter of the useage of that rude nickname."
  • Skipper: "They were doing that to eachother! It was just harmless millaterry provado teasing and fun! No harm done!"
  • Icky: "But ya can't deny that alot of the Brony Analist Community say that the Wonderbolts are in serious need of reform of their standerds. I mean, let's be honest, if they can't even beat a hyperised baby dragon or detect foulness in their own team like an excitable spazz, no offence Lightning, or an aging bitter psyco from an ugly part of their history, or even their OWN failings for that matter, then how is Equestia suppose to take them seriously as heroes?"
  • Rainbow Dash: Okay, all of you, I get where you're coming from. I mean, I should know that the military is not supposed to be completely perfect. Their actions are justified a bit. Like when I was framed. They told me that Spitfire serves as their voice of reason, and without her, the team tends to be a little... Well... Less perfect. And the worst part of that is, Wind Rider KNEW that. Getting rid of the leader was supposed to disrupt the rest of the team more than just being a leader. I mean, Soarin once told me that he used to be temporary leader a couple of times, but his poor judgment, misguidance, and lack of foresight seemed to make the Wonderbolts themselves look bad, as he had to be put on chore duty multiple times.
  • Icky: Oh, really? Does THAT excuse their choice to ditch Soarin during the Rainbow Falls event?
  • Rainbow Dash: Okay, in context, that would seem like a d*** move, but they told me that they did that because they were just being cautious. With what I said before about Soarin's flaws, they wanted to make sure he didn't cause some kind of mistake, and wanted a less-flawed pony to take his place.
  • Fluttershy:... I still don't think that's good companionship. They still lied to him.
  • Rainbow Dash: They didn't tell him because they didn't want him to feel abandoned or left out. They wanted to make him feel like he was important. When you're a Wonderbolt, you look out for each other, and as such, you have to make sure your team doesn't become flawed.
  • Tigress: I still don't think this is making the Wonderbolts look any better. If you ask me, the only person who's making them function better is you and your friends.
  • Icky: Yeah, I mean, come on! Why did you still wanna be with them after they just turned on you and threatened to kick you out WITHOUT a proper investigation?
  • Rainbow Dash:... You really wanna know why I still defend them? You wanna know WHY I have dreamed of being with them? Well, then, I'll tell you! When I was just a filly, before I was the pony who defended other fillies from bullies, and BEFORE I was the pony who loved racing and winning, I was... Lost.

Flashback...

  • (Rainbow Dash): "To abridge things.... I kinda used to be as bad as Gilda."
  • (Gilda): "I'd be offended if it wasn't true. In fact, I'm kinda guilty of being a bad enfluence cause of how crappy Griffinstone was. Granted, we both started out fine as kids, but by our teens, that was when our nastier attatudes began to show."
  • Teenage Rainbow and Gilda went around and caused mischief to locals.
  • (Rainbow Dash): "I was known to get into flight drag races with other adelesson punks for street cred, money, and.... Questionable activities."
  • (Icky): "Yikes, I didn't knew that about you guys. What caused it?"
  • (Rainbow Dash): "Typical teenage hormoans. Now, cause of an some unrelated event, I did lost that sense of jerkiness, but now..... I was an empty shell.... I re-understood what I should've really been and not what I acting as. I began to remember all the times when my dad took me to see Wonderbolt shows and rediscovered the Wonderbolt mercentdise I locked away when I entered defiencehood. Then..... It hit me. I realised that becoming a Wonderbolt was gonna be a new part of me, and to take me into a better life.... I became dedicated to them ever since because..... It was my old childhood love of the Wonderbolts that helped me out of the rut I was in...."

Flashback ends.

  • Rainbow Dash: "And now..... I finally completed that goal....."
  • Spike: "..... Yeah, but it looks like your gonna have to take them out of their OWN ruts!"
  • Shifu: "I have to agree with young Spike. It appears on like how they changed your life, you need to inspire them to make changes of their own. It's obvious with their quickness to embrace unreliable members, inconsisent sense of loyalty, and not always being reliable in times of danger, that they need someone who will set them straight."
  • Icky: "No s***! Remember when they ended up getting corrupted by Crane's industrial bro and went after us in alou to the chase senquence of the 3rd Madagascar movie?"
  • Squidward: "How about when one of them almost got eaten by a flying clone of that monster shark?"
  • Boss Wolf: "And the fact they weren't able to help out Big Mac from that clone of Jigglodon?"
  • Lord Shen: "And the biggest issue that they aren't always around to put a stop to a major problem! Or when they do, they aren't capable to stop it!"
  • Rarity: "But they aren't always that. Remember the things they did do correctly. The fact they rescued us from being in the grips of Wind Rider while you lougers were away on a mssion comes to mind."
  • Rainbow Dash: But all that's besides the bigger picture. They helped inspire me to become the well-recognized town hero I am today. I couldn't have gotten anywhere without them. That's why I still stick by them even after how much flaws they have. I don't know what happened to make them this way, but I've long proven to be reliable to them than they are of each other. That's why Spitfire honors me. Ever since I inspired them back in Rainbow Falls, they know that they can always use some new surprises from me every once in a while.
  • Mr. Dodo:... Actually, I think that sounds fair. I mean, the phrase 'nobody's perfect' exists because it describes all people. Spitfire's got flaws, Soarin's got flaws, even Rainbow Dash does. Why do you think they consider nicknames a bit of a tradition? Rainbow Dash wasn't the ONLY one who did a bad impression when joining.
  • Rainbow Dash: (Chuckles) Yeah, I was surprised, too. I just thought they were doing it to be jerks. I really should consider talking it out with my fellow teammates that way I don't end up ruining another presentation. It was actually the first time the Wonderbolts shared something personal.
  • Mr. Whiskers:... Speaking of nicknames... What exactly did they call Spitfire?
  • Rainbow Dash:... (Chuckles)... It's better if you don't know. Let's just say that it was worse than MY nickname and leave it at that.
  • Mr. Whiskers: Let me guess, Gritfire? Zitfire?
  • Rainbow Dash: Guys, guys, let's not worry about that! This isn't about me, anyway. This is about Lightning Dust. If we don't help her learn, she's going to be back to being an outcast.
  • Icky: "Well to save us a repeat of that episode about how to teach YOU about history, why not just teach Lightning like how you were taught by doing what she loves? Flying."
  • Pinkie: "Awww..... I really wanted to do that rap."
  • Starlight: "Hey wait, isn't that gazelle lady usually with you?"
  • Icky: "She had to go back to Zootopia for a charity event her manager is holding."
  • Duke: "(Looking kinda down) As she always had done in the past before this space adventure started."
  • Fluttershy: ".... What's the matter, Mr. Weselton?"
  • Duke: "WEASELTON!?..... Sorry. I'm just.... Coping with loneliness..... I'm used to being without Gazelle, don't get me wrong, but, I never gotten to spend more then just a few moments."
  • Starlight: "..... You miss your friend, do you?"
  • Duke: "Hey hey, whoa whoa! "Missing" her is a strong word there!"
  • Twilight: "Duke, you don't have to hide your feelings from us."
  • Icky: "Or else we'll be forced to bring Mr. Lie Detecter Test into this."
  • Duke: "OK OK, FINE!? You hussled me! I am, kinda, sort've, missing Gazelle. She's among the closest things I ever came to having a person for a friend, followed by you guys and fellow bootleggers. And my family, wife and kids, but, besides the point."
  • Applejack: "Aw shucks, don't you worry much about nothing, Weaselton. I'm sure she's feeling mighty homesick about you too."
  • Duke: "She does, but it'll be quickly mended by being surrounded by screaming fans. She does care for me, but she knows I usually can handle myself, so she doesn't worry like an anxious mother over me."
  • Lightning: Well... How exactly are you going to teach me again?
  • Rainbow Dash:... You do learn through sight, don't you?
  • Lightning: Actually, it's kinda different than that. Much stuff I see when I'm in the air seem to never catch my attention. Even things that seem interesting.
  • Shifu:... Then how DO you learn?
  • Lightning: Well, I usually learn by experience. You can actually learn things by watching and experiencing them in your mind. Like with that Wonderbolts History Movie. When I was watching that movie, MAN, was I hooked! I wanted to fly with those guys. You get sucked into a movie so much, you wannabe there in the fight with them.
  • Rainbow Dash:... So... Basically seeing things in flight is not entirely how you learn?
  • Lightning: Oh, don't get me wrong, I actually think of seeing things in flight as my own activity of pony-watching, entertainment, adrenaline-rushes, and actually living out a personal fantasy. When you actually do something like it is in a movie, you feel like you're one of them. You're ready to make your cherished hero icons proud. You intend to impress them with all you've got! Show them what their tales can inspire.
  • Rainbow Dash:... Kinda like ME! THAT'S IT! THAT'S THE TRADITIONAL WAY YOU LEARN!
  • Patrick:... By watching movies?
  • SpongeBob: Nope. With... (Makes a rainbow with his hands) IMAGINAAAAATIOOON!
  • Sandy: Now hold on just a rootin-tootin second! This sounds a bit silly when you think about it. With a limited mind like Lightning's, how in the name of the Alamo are we gonna get her to live out an entire history?
  • Twilight:... I think I may have a spell for that in my library.
  • Sandy: Yep, I was expecting you did!
  • Twilight: Are you kidding? This isn't one of those random spells! It's a cousin to that spell I used to create Order City to test Discord's reformation during that Blot mission. It's like augmented reality, only with magic.
  • Icky: "Ohhh, a magical simular eh? Sounds dandy as candy!"
  • Lord Shen: "So basicly, your going to magicly simulate historic events of the wonderbolts?"
  • Starlight: "Why fake history when you can just travel back in time and-"
  • Everyone just stares blankly at Starlight....
  • Alex: "Of course YOU would suggest that."
  • Starlight: "..... Nevermind, I realise that in hindsight of certain actions and mishaps, maybe fake simulated history IS safer then the real deal."
  • Lightning Dust: "But probuly not as exciting as that OR the movie."
  • Lord Shen: "Well history was never meant to be as hollywoodingly exciting as a popcorn thriller, Miss Dust. But it is impourent to learn from it, or you will repeat it."
  • Lightning: "YA MEAN I'LL GET CAUGHT IN A TIME-LOOP IF I DON'T LEARN HISTORY!?"
  • Silence.....
  • Duke: "...... Not a very good head on her shoulders."
  • Applejack: "That kinda isn't what Shen meant, Suger cube. He means you'll end up being back in the position of the last time you failed at something."
  • Lightning Dust: "Well.... I hate being bored, but.... I kinda hate failure abit more."
  • Squidward: "So does that mean the simulation stuff starts now?"
  • Twilight: "Not exactly. The spell works better in giving you the history you want if your in the accreate location of the event that took place in it. Otherwise, if I were to do it in the castle, (Casts the Spell as an exsample, and everything turns into a simulation of an empty field)...... You'll just be in the history of the current area your in. In fact, this is what the field is like a day prior where I would first come into ponyville."
  • Suddenly, a simulated Snips and Snails came in.
  • Simulated Snips: "..... So, Snails..... Ya got the goods?"
  • Simulated Snails: "..... The good what?"
  • Simulated Snips: "..... THE PRETTY MARE PICTURES FROM RARITY'S PLACE, YOU IDIOT?!"
  • Simulated Snails: "..... OH YEAH! I got them! (Brings out a pile of dirty magazenes) From "Playpony", to the "X-Mares"! And Look! Check out this one of this hot blue mare with the wizard costume!"
  • Simulated Snails shows a magizene that shows Trixie in erotic undergarments.
  • Everyone stared in surprise!
  • Rarity: "..... SO THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE EROTIC LITTERATURES?!"
  • Fidget was stucked in a happy surprised face!
  • Thunderclap: "..... Uh, Great One? Why are you on those pictures?"
  • Icky: "Jesus Christ Trix, YOU WERE A PORN STAR!?"
  • Trixie: ".....That was a dark and sorrowful life in Trixie's days of yor that I wish to not repeat."
  • Rarity: "Well I thought I recinised you from somewhere the moment I saw you."
  • Fluttershy: "Uh, Rarity, why WERE you keeping those dirty magizenes?"
  • Rarity: "Well I only needed them to learn how to draw mare bodies to the most interic detail, even the more, private, details. And the magizenes that best offer such is erotic litterature."
  • Applejack: "Well see what happened when ya get them trash magizenes? Now two young colts are- (Looks at the direction where the simulations are and suddenly her pupels srhunk) OHHHH GOSH?!"
  • Pinkie: "..... Why are they touching their pee-pees?"
  • Icky: "The adult word is "Penis", Pinkie, and it's obvious that those two are ma-"
  • Twilight: OKAY, SIMULATION OVER! (The simulation ended)... Whew! We didn't need to see any of those.
  • Gilda:... Well, Trixie, I don't think I can look at you the same way again. Especially since those two are so drawn to you, they want your body.
  • Trixie: (Shivers) Now I NEVER wanna be near them again! What has been seen cannot be unseen! And I thought they were too young for that!
  • Icky: "It was obvious that those two are a case of early-age curiousity for sex. All kids start out with porn."
  • Rarity: "I do believe that I will need to have a good conversation with Snips and Snails' parents about this. Not just to get my errotic littature back, but to alarm them of maturing quicker then they have anpisipated."
  • Lightning:... Okay, how does this simulation spell work again?
  • Twilight: Well, like I said, you need to be in the exact spot the events happened in order to experience, and even interact, with what had occurred eons ago.
  • Lightning: THE WONDERBOLTS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR EONS?!?
  • Twilight:... I wouldn't say that. It's just that they... Well... Well, learning is the whole point of this. If you learn by experience and imagination, then just witnessing through flight is not going to be enough. But be warned, sometimes these simulations can be traumatic to the mind. And they're often abit more worse then two idiot boys fabbing to dirty paper books! The history of the Wonderbolts is a really graphic and violent experience, especially when you get to certain battles like those against the violent Razor Feathers.
  • Lightning: You mean those griffins that were supposed to be like the Wonderbolts for the griffins? How did they come into fighting? They're still alive and fighting, aren't they?
  • Rainbow Dash:... (Sighs) Oh my, Celestia!
  • Twilight: Just look. I'll have the map set up for your long journey, then I'll have the simulation spell cast on you. Just remember what I said about the violence. Sometimes, they might hurt both mentally AND physically. In fact, there's going to be a LOT of outer and mental magic spells that will be used here. Oak Golden is gonna have to be your guide through the whole thing.
  • Lightning: If it means I have to learn and become the hero I have always wanted to be, then I'm gonna take the chance! I don't care what historical evil is thrown at me! I'll kick his ass into the ground if he can at least feel the pain!
  • Twilight:... Then let's do it!
  • Po: "Well we'll watch over the Shineflare case while you guys are out of your way to teach Lightning alot of impourent stuff. But we'll keep watch of you guys through the spybug if there's to be unexpected trouble."

The first place of the Simulation Journey: An old Wonderbolt building.

  • Lightning Dust and the Main 7 arrived.
  • Oak Golden was seen carried in a christailised compus.
  • Oak Golden: "Remind me again WHY I have been taken from the Map and transfered into a Christail Empireian Compus?"
  • Applejack: "We're assentually taken Lightning Dust on a field trip to teach her wonderbolt history. And ya'll are a libarian ghost in a sense."
  • Oak Golden: "..... Well, indeed I am. And you're lucky that I did kept a decent collection of Wonderbolt history, AND I did caught up on recent events thanks to Miss Sparkle's own, and much larger, collection. But do I still have to be in here?"
  • Twilight: "Well that's kinda because you're a type of spirit that can only be inside an object. The only hope we have of taking you along is if we transfer you into another object with a powerful of mana consuming spirit transfer spell. But trust me, it's only until Lightning Learns enough."
  • Oak Golden: "Well as long as the living arrangements are temporary."
  • Lightning Dust: "Ok, guys, why are we at this dusty old building?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "You're lucky that I can't be offended to something that is true. But believe it or not, this dusty old place was once the original Wonderbolt Capitcal! In fact..... IT'S THE BIRTH PLACE OF THE WONDERBOLT LINE?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "..... A building that gave birth to Wonderbolts? I kinda thought those guys had moms and dads like the rest of us."
  • Starlight: "(Face-hooves) Oh my Celestia, please tell me she's not THAT dense!?"
  • Lightning Dust: "Re-LAX, I was just joking that time! I knew what she meant."
  • Rarity: "Goodness, this palce has clearly seen better days."
  • Applejack: "Here's what I don't get though. If this place was respondsable for making the Wonderbolts happen, then why did they abandon it?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "The Wonderbolts were, NOT a well funded group back then. You'll see why in the minute."
  • The ponies entered the building.
  • Rainbow Dash: "Ok Twi, do your stuff."
  • Twilight: (Casts the spell on Lightning as the building's appearance changed from shoddy into very well as several ponies were seen, and Lightning was a part of the group)
  • General Pony (Brown-and-Red Pony in a uniform):...Well, everypony, it seems that a LOT has changed since we lost our great Princess Luna. So Celestia is counting on us to bring light to the first Celestial Year of Peace. We've been specially trained to make that possible!
  • Lightning:... Uh... Who the hell is that?
  • Pony #1: Ssssh! Don't interrupt General Firefly when he's talking! It's against regulations!
  • Lightning:... ("General Firefly? I've at least heard THAT name a couple of times.")
  • (Oak Golden): ("Yes. You see, this is a couple of years since Nightmare Moon was banished, and the E.U.P Guard was founded to act as a military force. This squadron was meant to shine hope to the people of Equestria by performing in the Celestial Year of Peace.")
  • General Firefly: DID SOMEPONY SAY SOMETHING?!? (Lightning was shocked, surprised that even Firefly saw her)...YOU! DID YOU SAY SOMETHING?!? HOW DARE YOU INTERRUPT ME?!?
  • Lightning:... Uh...
  • (Oak Golden): ("Don't worry! This is just a simulation. No interaction is going to make a difference. Like Twilight said, you're going to be experiencing history through your own eyes.")
  • Lightning:... Uh, sorry, sir! Please continue!
  • General Firefly: That's a soldier! As I was saying, Celestia has been a bit... Depressed, that she had to banish her own sister to the moon. But we must lift her spirits with this performance!
  • Lightning:... ("Wait!... Does this mean... I GET TO PERFORM AS WELL?!?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("Yes. But don't worry about screwing up the performance. Just be sure to ignore anything disruptive and just do the best you can.")
  • Lightning: ("And THIS is supposed to help me learn? I know I said I learn through experiencing, but I never realized it meant THIS degree!")
  • (Oak Golden): ("What did you expect? The Wonderbolts history was SUPPOSED to be at that degree. But don't worry. I'm sure you'll be fine. You said you wanted to fly with them, so go ahead.")
  • Lightning:... (Gulps)... Let's make her proud, General!
  • General Firefly: That's a soldier!
  • ???: "Good morrow, General I-am-named-after-a-bug."
  • Everyone looks to see a stuffy and unimpressed pony regelmen.
  • Lightning:... ("Who the hell's the stiff?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("That, would be Councilpony Stiffbutt.") (Lightning giggled softly) ("Don't laugh. Laughable as his name is, Stiffbutt is a POWERFUL pony of the Unicorn Council of his time, and was the one who gave funding to the reestablished E.U.P. Guard.... Though not very good funding since the Counciler was a strong Alicorn loyalist who believed that normal ponies can't defend Equestria as well as an Alicorn can. He would be the reason why the E.U.P. wouldn't be given very strong funding until his term ends."
  • Lightning:... ("And I'm suppose to impress that jerk?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("Oh, not just him. But the Princess, and an entire crowd of ponies that have been... Well... Lost since the banishment of Nightmare Moon and the loss of a praised princess. This performance is supposed to not just lift spirits and declare the founding of the Wonderbolts, but it will also inspire certain inviduals to join the E.U.P Guard, and bring an era of protection.
  • Lightning:... ("I guess that could be easy enough. I mean... What exactly happened during the performance?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("You'll see. Just roll with it and play along.")
  • General Firefly: Good morning, Councilpony Stiffbutt. (Some of the soldiers snickered) I DON'T WANT NO SNICKERING IN THIS PLATOON! BE RESPECTFUL IN THE EYES OF THIS COUNCILOR! AM I CLEAR?!?
  • Soldiers and Lightning: YES, SIR!
  • General Firefly: Good! Now then, Stiffbutt, have you got any progress on the funding of the E.U.P Guard?
  • Stiffbutt: Oh, unbelievably rough. The recruits are... Well...
  • General Firefly: Inexperienced?
  • Stiffbutt: Ugh, they stink! The combat funds have been set to be only 3 bits an hour! If you guys don't get your plan up and running, they might quit before anything impressive happens!
  • General Firefly: No need to worry, sir. Princess Celestia put her full trust and confidence in us. As long as my ponies remain focused and remember what I taught them, then we'll prove that ponies can do anything as long as they have a little push in the right direction.
  • Lightning:... ("Are you sure I can pull this off?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("Well, to be openly honest, if it was me out there...I'd show them my own skills and techniques. That is, those that aren't THAT reckless. Maybe the Dust Clan's techniques can help make a difference. Like I said, it's just a simulation, so nothing you do will affect anything. Just give yourself a little self-confidence.")
  • Lightning Dust:... ("Okay, if you say so.")
  • General Firefly: Alright, my pony brethren, we perform in 50 minutes. Get ready.
  • Soldiers and Lightning: YES, SIR!
  • General Firefly: Dismissed! (They saluted and flew out)
  • Lightning:... ("Well...what now?")
  • (Oak Golden): (Now you head over to the location of the next event. The old Celestial Coliseum 9 miles north of Canterlot.
  • Lightning:... Okay. (Flies off as the simulation fades and everything was seen by the Mane Seven)
  • Starlight:... Did it work?
  • Twilight: I was able to see everything through Lightning's eyes. She did well. Now she's heading for the Celestial Coliseum.
  • Rainbow Dash:...To be perfectly honest, I'm just glad I get to see the many historical sites of Wonderbolt history. Let's go! (They head out)

Chapter 2: Plot of the Gargoyles and King George/Arrival of Acidburn

Meanwhile, at Wonderbolt Academy...

  • Spitfire was seen walking down the hallway concerningly along with Soaren, Fleetfoot and her team.
  • They entered into the door that leads into an impourent office, where there sit some major generals, a major commander, and other impourent leaders, all over-seen by a fire-colored staillian with a cool looking wing prostetic.
  • Spitfire: "..... You..... Wanted to see us, sir?"
  • The meeting leading general: "Yes Spitfire dear. This concerns you as well."
  • Soaren: "It's, an honor to meet you at last, General Breathflame. Your daughter said great things about you and-"
  • Breathflame: "Thank you for the flattery, but it came at an imoppertune time. Alpha team, take a seat."
  • Spitfire's team did that....
  • Breathflame noticed a seat was still empty....
  • Breathflame: "..... Where is Miss Rainbow Dash?"
  • Fleetfoot: "She's away on Elemental Harmony business sir, concerning Shineflare. I, also heard she's engaged on fixing the confidence of Lightning Dust."
  • Spitfire: "But we'll be sure to make her aware of the meeting if it's exactly what I think."
  • Breathflame: "Alchourse. I respect the fact that Miss Dash wasn't at first a Wonderbolt. Now, onto impourent matters. Shorces have confirmed our worse fears..... The Gargoyles and their leader, Man-Vulture, are once again moblising and preparing their forces."
  • Soaren: "Whoa whoa whoa, wait?! I thought Equestia was cool with the Gargoyle community."
  • Breathflame: "..... Those Gargoyles are not native to this world. We speak of Gargoyles that once owned an entire sector of Equestia that used to be Gargoyumna. But, thanks to a mistake caused by an early member of the Judu Des clan, and because ansisterial Equestrians were not as enlighten to friendship back then, that's no longer the case."
  • Fleetfoot: ".... You mean..... Equestrian-native Gargoyles?"
  • Major General: "Preposterious! Equestrian native gargoyles are extinct! There's never been evidence to prove otherwise."
  • Breathflame: "That's because only the most trusted Wonderbolts knew of them.... That is until today. The Equestrian native gargoyles have begun kidnapping non-native gargoyles and began poisoning their minds with dark lies, turning them into angry vengeful drones. Like how a gang of punk Gargoyles randomly ambushed a pony bank out of nowhere. They're being radicalised. And now, I desided that I can't afford to uphold the royal promise to Celestia herself, and must make Equestia aware of a very serious problem."
  • Major General 2: "Do you have evidence suggesting this?"
  • Breathflame signeled a unicorn to come in.
  • Breathflame: "..... Proceed."
  • The Unicorn casted a spell that reveils the undeniable proof that the Native Equestian Gargoyles are well enough real, silluettes of ten gargoyles, plus a humaniod vulture beast. This surprised the meeting members, except Spitfire.
  • Breathflame: "..... That'll be all."
  • The Unicorn undoes her spell and leaves.
  • Commander: "...... How can this be? I thought the Native Equestians died out after the Pony-Gargoyle war. I-"
  • Surprise: "Wait, there was a PONY-GARGOYLE WAR!?"
  • Commander: "..... It, was a war we ponies were ashamed off and kept secret."
  • Fleetfoot: "Ok, I'm confused here, what's going on here?"
  • Breathflame: Well, you see, after thousands of years being hidden in the shadows of their secluded home of the inhospitable and strictly forbidden Goyland Caves, the gargoyles have finally decided to make their move. Just last night, they attacked Wonderbolt Team Delta's headquarters, and over 4 of it's members have disappeared.
  • Spitfire: Oh, God, they're not dead, are they?
  • Breathflame: No trace of blood was seen, and the gargoyles would never have cleaned it up in time.
  • Surprise: Hold on, I'm still lost! What's this about a Pony-Gargoyle War?
  • Breathflame:...Well, it's kind of a tragic tale which everypony was instructed to keep quiet about. It all started not too long before the founding of Equestria....

Flashback

  • (Breathflame):... Clover the Clever and her future circle of friends were not the only ones who ventured out to escape the cold of the Windigo Ice Age. There was an ancient pony settlement that was located inside a dried-up, arid, and inhospitable valley which the ponies believed they were safe from the cold. However, they too suffered the cold. But what they didn't know was that Equestria, at this time, was not completely a prosperous land. It was one filled with monsters. One of the most dominating in particular was the Gargoyles. (Mysterious figures on large treacherous and unreachable elevations were seen cracking as the sunset faded and the temperatures started to drop, and the stone figures shattered and revealed monstrous beasts that roared loudly into the night, spreading their wings out wide, and had red menacing eyes that glowed ominously in the dark. Then they took off)...The Gargoyles were disturbed by the dramatic changes in the weather. They couldn't tolerate it, and when they found the source of the problem, they tried to warn the ponies about the Windigoes. But because of their beastly appearances, and the ponies' impaired distrust and hate, they shunned the Gargoyles, and they failed to listen to their warnings, and after being convinced by early barbaric ancestors of the Judu Des Clan, they threatened that any Gargoyle found on their grounds would be prosecuted and sentenced to death. Angered by the ponies harsh actions, and when constant persistence due to the conditions getting worse only lead to the ponies, particularly the Des Clan, executing gargoyle after gargoyle that failed to warn them, the Gargoyles had enough, and felt that if the ponies wouldn't listen, then they would either leave their land or die. Thus, the Pony-Gargoyle War began. (The Gargoyles armed themselves with crossbows, bows and arrows, swords, their own claws, knives, and rocks as they launched an assault on the colony) The war was long and bitter, and as the hatred between the pony tribes and their Gargoyle enemies escalated with kill after murder, the Windigoes' storms only got stronger. The Gargoyles couldn't stand the cold and had to end the war quickly. But as a result of their weakening health due to the temperatures, the dying crops, and for lack of viable resources, the ponies won. As punishment, the Gargoyles were banished from Equestria, and their lands were claimed as their own. But we didn't realize until too late that ponies were not their only enemies. It didn't take until the warnings of Clover the Clever for the ponies to realize that the Gargoyles have only been trying to warn them, and that their bitterness and cruelty had drove them to aggression in the first place. Feeling guilty and sorrowful, and swearing to treat strangers better, the Windigo Ice Age was forever wiped out. The Pony-Gargoyle War had remained one of the darkest events of pony history, and was viewed as so cruel to future generations, that in order to prevent ponies from losing hope of their own ways, they had to withhold the Pony-Gargoyle War from the public. The Pony-Gargoyle War has since been known to only those that are entrusted with it's secret.

Present

  • Surprise:... I... That's... Wow, I don't know what to say about that!
  • Breathflame: Yes. It may sound cruel, but that's how post-Chaos War and pre-Equestrian ponies were back then. The loss of the Alicorn Gods have caused the ponies to lose hope in the beliefs they cherished so greatly, and because the chaos reaped by the Draconequui left the world's landscape into a wasteland for the last hundred years, resources were scarce. Thus, the pony tribes began to care for nothing but their own welfare.
  • Soarin:...I have to admit, that really IS one of the darkest we ponies ever went.
  • Breathflame: Yes. Celestia even said that we needed to find the Gargoyles and make up for our mistreatment. But to be honest, if anypony should be blamed for that event, then it would be the Des Clan. But like the rest, they were overly bitter. After the Windigo Ice Age ended, we tried to search for the Gargoyles, but all we have ever done was fail. Now, we do know of the Goyland Caves, but.... We never mapped the caves, so..... Yeah, the bad planning of ansisterial ponies backfires once again. We feared that the Gargoyles would come back for revenge. But now, our fears have finally been realized. It's possable that the Man-Vulture appears to be serving as a negtive influence and has kept them in this desire for vengence.
  • Surprise: "..... Ok, seriously? Vulture-People? I mean, I know Equestia houses alot of freaky creatures, but come on!"
  • Breathflame: "Man-Vulture isn't nessersarly an actual Vulture Men. Real Vulture men are tribal beings. Man-Vulture was once an entirely different creature. A griffin named Mandreious Vul-Turea. A revolutionary griffin genius of his time.... That is until, an ambitious dream turned into a horrendus mistake."
  • Fleetfoot: "I have a feeling this origin story is gonna be more unpleasent."

Flashback...

  • (Breathflame): Mandreious was formerly a griffin scientist who was raised by ponies, and grew up fearing that Nightmare Moon's return would be inevitable. So he was among many to offer a solution to this problem. He became interested in evolving ponies into stronger forms. He offered to give them power beyond anything magic could offer. He would give pegasi stronger and bigger wings for augmented control over storms, he would give unicorns enhanced magic, and Earth ponies would be boosted in strength, stamina, and endurance, meaning easier harvests. At first, Celestia saw potential in this. But when she asked if his serum would work, and he tested it on himself...let's just say...his body was warped beyond belief. (Mandreious was seem mutating into a man-vulture beast)...(He was shocked)...
  • Mandreious: DON'T LOOK AT ME!!! I'M HIDEOUS!! I-I-I GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE!!! (He tries to leave)
  • (Breathflame): Celestia tried to help him, but he was just too long lost. He believed that pony society would never look at him the same way again, and he escaped without a trace. Fearing that this would corrupt him, Celestia had no choice but to restore the E.U.P Guard in order to track him down and help him. But over the next few centuries, he was never found, and fear for his return escalated. Little did we know that he had allied himself with the Gargoyles as they resided in the Goyland Caves, knowing what it was like to be shunned for beastly appearances. He sought to conquer Equestria as he got prepared for his first invasion.

Present

  • Breathflame: And the first attack was situated on Canterlot, all in the night since Gargoyles are stone statues by day. The limited lighting made it hard to know where each attack would come from, and the Gargoyles benefitted on surprise and stealth. They showed no mercy, and injured, maimed, or even killed, many ponies until...
  • Spitfire: Until my family stood in their way.
  • Fleetfoot:... Wait, you knew about this too, Spitfire?
  • Spitfire: Yes. My father had fought against the Gargoyles. Fortunately, the secret was still kept as to this day, the ponies didn't know what struck them since they only attack at night. My family and their squadrons were able to fend off attack, after attack, after attack, considering it a priority to cover our HQ's locations.
  • Breathflame: But now I fear that things have just gotten worse. That attack on Delta Team's HQ has lead us to believe that the Gargoyles have finally found our locations, and are likely to strike another HQ tonight.
  • Soaren: "But what do they have to gain from it? We're not the only defenders of Equestia anymore! We have the elemental barers now! They can totally mop the floor with those Gargoyles and this Man-Vulture dude! They beaten a powerful demonic centaur and a skeletail alicorn! I don't think a bunch of vengeful gargoyles and a mutanted griffin pose no true problem!"
  • Breathflame: "This is the downside of not letting the public know about this. Even Princess Sparkle can't fight what she doesn't beleive to be real. That runs the risk of her and her friends being easy targets for as long as they're unaware should Man-Vulture deside getting rid of us isn't enough."
  • Fleetfoot: "Wait.... You said there was no evidence of Wonderbolts being killed in the Delta attack.... Does, that imply..... They were kidnaped? But what do they have to gain from that?"
  • Breathflame: "Man-Vulture is a genius mind.... Perhaps it's not nessersarly the ponies themselves..... But their biology."
  • Surprise: "Our Bio-Whats-it?"
  • Breathflame: "It's, highly likely that Man-Vulture and the Gargoyles aren't at all ignorent of the legacies of the heroes of equestia at all.... They simply don't want to directly challnage them.... Yet..... Not without a method to get by that...... And I think he may've gotten inspiration from the Starfem situation...."
  • Spitfire: "...... You mean....?"
  • Breathflame: "Yes....... He wants to give the Gargoyle army, anti-element protection, by injection a purity serum that would protect them from the effects of being easily congured by the powers of harmony. He means to render the power useless."
  • Fleetfoot: "Bu surely he knows that with additional elements, Starfem was defeated anyway! He's wasting his time otherwise."
  • Breathflame: "That's why we're believing that the purity serum is a just in case plan. It's possable his more major plan, is simple, but direct..... Taking away at least only one of the elements from the circle, and rendering the element barers incapable to fight back from there."
  • Major General 3: "Their bond's unbreakable! No way a Gargoyle or even Man-Vulture would destroy that."
  • Breathflame: "..... He..... Has a secret weapon....."
  • Spitfire: "..... Father, do, you mean......"
  • Breathflame: "..... Spitfire....... Your brother's returned."

Elsewhere, a dark and dank cave.

  • Some Wonderbolts were seen dragged by Gargoyle troops.
  • As the Wonderbolts were forcefully dragged, music was heard playing.
  • Sitting on throwne next to an empty bigger one and another throwne, a robed beast with a sword hand was seen.
  • ???: "I feel song..... Coming on."
Down down down in Goblin Town!

Down down down in Goblin Town!

  • Sword-Handed Gargoyle: "..... How's that for music? It's one of my own comsitions."
  • A Well-dressed Gargoyle was seen.
  • Well-dressed Gargoyle: "Oh please, Elder, you clearly ripped that off from that "Hoppet" Movie. That was about as original as a plaugerisum band."
  • The Elder: "HEY SHUT YER YAP, FRENCHY?!"
  • Well-Dressed Gargoyle: "Nice try, but only the king and a much better elder can order silence from me, you broken former shell of a gargoyle."
  • The Elder: "YA WANNA FIGHT LIKE MEN, SPINOK!?"
  • Spinok: "How surprisingly boarish for an elder to speak."
  • Elder: I'LL BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF YOU LIKE A PONY, YOU SCUM-SUCKING CROUTON!!! (The two began fighting)
  • ???: THAT...IS ENOUGH! (A cloaked skull-hatted gargoyle with rainbow wings was seen)...
  • Elder:...Oh, you're in big trouble now, cupcake!
  • Spinok: (Sighs) Oh don't flatter yourself. He's judging BOTH of us. You espeically, no doubt.
  • Wonderbolt #1: WHATEVER YOU BEASTS ARE UP TO, YOU WON'T GET AWAY WITH IT!!!
  • Leader Gargoyle: Ah, yes, the Wonderbolts I was told we had acquired. (A specific Gargoyle with a bandaged hand, a blue shirt, and a helmet was seen)
  • Scout-like Gargoyle: Yo, boss, I gotta ask, why couldn't we just kill these lil' punks in their sleep? Yeah, we may not be able to cover it up, but wouldn't it be easier to just kill all of them in one fell swoop? I mean, come on, I don't have this here bat for show! BOINK! (Smacks a wall with it until it causes rocks to fall on him)...I meant to do that!
  • Leader Gargoyle: The order was NOT to kill them, Segnal. Man-Vulture insisted that they need to be alive for their purity to be useful. Killing them would render any purity attempt useless.
  • Segnal: "Well that sucks. Now we're gonna live in a dank smelly cave with barn smell!"
  • Spinok: "Impatient fool! If they die, so will their purity. No pony means no purity, and no purity means no defence against being easily defeated lke a bunch of insignifient nats by their rainbow powers."
  • Segnal: "Ok ok! I get it! I'm just saying living them alive isn't any fun at all! Sheesh."
  • Leader Gargoyle: "There's bound to be plenty of violence apawn ponies soon enough, you impatient blood-luster."
  • Segnal: "Yeah, espeically since those Judu Des creeps lost their edge, and they finally turned on that Golden Sword clan member! This'll be a snitch!"
  • Spinok: "They're not the only mythic beast slayers of Equestia, half-wit. There's still so many of them we would end up wasting time trying to bring it up. We're lucky caves are the only thing keeping us active in day and night, or otherwise the idea of prisoners would seem fruitless."
  • Segnal: "Yeah, but they ain't within miles of here, so we can basicly-"
  • Gargoyle Leader: "Never bring a mythic slayer's effiectentcy to question, Segnal. Overcopidence like that can get you killed."
  • Spinok: "No truer words have been spoken."
  • Gargoyle Leader: "Now..... Take the equines to the donguins. Man-Vulture will know what to do with them from there. And I want NO ATTEMPTS ON THEIR LIFES!? Not EVEN if they challnage your pride and diginty! If I heard that even so much as their manes being yanked off, you will have to answer, (picks up a rock) TO ME?! (CRUSHES THE ROCK WITH NO EFFERT?!) UNDERSTOOD?!"
  • The Gargoyle troops nodded in agreement, and dragged the Wonderbolts away from the area.
  • From another platform, an Engineer-dressed Gargoyle, a Sniper-like Gargoyle with an Australian hat and a half-mask, and a Medic-like Gargoyle with tiny wings were seen.
  • Doctor Gargoyle: "....... Dah, dummkopfs! Our kind still continutes to waste their efforts on being enemies to the equines!"
  • Engineer Gargoyle: "In all fairness, Elfwork, losing a war can pretty much make bitter losers out of ya. Now, I'm for getting back what was once ours, but it's obvious 'Equestria' as it's now called is no longer very Gargoyle worthy. No more perches for us to rest on, there's now at least more then just two Alicorns now, any remnants of our old culture lost in time. We're pretty much considered extinct, so why bother?"
  • Masked Australian Gargoyle: "... Desires for bloody revenge is the problem, mate. Thank our king for not letting our blood starving brethren having it now, but he can't hold it off forever. And that bloody Man-Vulture is being a bad influence to us and himself."
  • Doctor Gargoyle (Elfwork): "Well in retrospect, how can anyone ignore the promise of reclaiming what was once ours when they were unfairly taken away from it cause of very bad circumstances? And I'm still surprised your not among the more resentment drivin, Half-Face. You were badly injured by a pony."
  • Masked Australian Gargoyle (Half-Face): "... Grudges offer no true rewards. You'll only end up being left empty and broken."
  • Engineer Gargoyle: "Ain't that the truth. That's why I ain't entirely ornery about being the last Architect Gargoyle alive. It was obviously only a stratregic move designed to keep us from over-powering them. And hell, it's clear they ain't proud of it."
  • Elfwork: "And that's wundebar for you, Tecmeck, but the others don't see it. It's not enough for them that the ponies feel remorse for the mess the Windigoes caused them to make since they were warned too late. They refused to accept that maybe we were trying to warn them about those ice spirits in a bad time considering that they lost a majority of the mighty Alicorn race to the Chaos War."
  • ???: "And that's understandable, lads."
  • A Large, elderly and eye-patched Demoman-like Gargoyle came in hunched, and on a walking stick.
  • The Bigger Elder: "But those ponies still need to acknowledge that they shouldn't've taken their pain out of us! Also, this is more then just reclaiming land and mere vengeance. It's about reminding the world that the Gargoyle race is still the mightiest there is."
  • Elfwork: "Of course, Elder Mokoma. It is reliefing that your still more sensiable then Elder Jubbjibberstab. It's ashame that sword-handed twat gets to be the king's adviser."
  • Demoman-like Elder (Mokoma): "Make no mistake, lads. The king considers me just as impourent as ol' sword-hands. Oh I do pity Jibb for this..... I hope the hand he lost, WASN'T THE HAND THAT PLEASURES HIM IF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN!?"
  • The four laughed!
  • Engineer-like Gargoyle (Tecmeck): "Or otherwise, no wonder he's so dang angry!"
  • The four laughed again!
  • ???: Oh, you all seem to be in it for your own reasons besides what Jibb was through. (The Leader Gargoyle appeared)
  • Tecmeck: Oh, uh, King George!
  • Leader Gargoyle (King George): You all have already made it clear that you are in this battle for your own reasons. Jibb is in it for the loss of his hand, Half-Face for being horribly disfigured, Tecmeck for being left the last of his kind, and sometimes even Segnal partially for s***s and giggles.
  • Mokoma: Well, sir, we're ALL supposed to be in it because the ponies took away what was ours! That's why we're ALL in it for our own personal gain. They took me bloody eye for crying out loud!
  • King George: They took more than just your looks and body parts. They took our land, our families, our friends, everything we held dear because they failed to listen to our warnings about our homes being changed by their antics. Especially me. I was the only one who put my trust in ponies, and hoped for the best that they would offer an ounce of compassion. But...
  • Tecmeck: But them varmints proved you wrong, huh?
  • King George: Yes, but it wasn't because of the Des Clan... For the most part! It's because ponies considered us beasts! They called us savages, unnatural creatures. They said themselves that we didn't deserve that land! None of those insults got to me at first, and by all means, they mean nothing now in light of current events, but that's not relivent to the story. But then came the day when the Des Clan's executions and slaughtering lead many gargoyles to turn against me and the Elders. I didn't blame the Des Clan that much since I thought they were just mentally unwell. But then... They demanded we declare war. I was outraged by such words. I tried to justify that war was not going to make the situation any better as it will justify their prejudice... But then the people threatened that they would attack the settlement themselves if we didn't comply. I couldn't risk that! Such an act without Elder permission and support would've been suicide, and it would've lead the ponies to declare a genocide on the rest of us. But then things got worse even further! A rogue pony platoon had went to a gargoyle peak and smashed all the Gargoyle statues that rested on top. None of them were spared, and the few that DID survive were frozen to death by the Windigoes. THAT'S where I couldn't afford to hold it off anymore! To the eyes of too many of my subjects, that act openly declared that ponies were not welcome on our land. So, to avoid being an unpopular minority, I had to support the war. Now look where my cowardice to peer pressure had lead us. Obviously, we did not won the war! And all because we didn't just instead waited for the problem to resolve itself.
  • Tecmeck:... Wow, you sure got into a heap of trouble, your highness!
  • Elfwork: "In, all fairness, we had no way of knowing if it'll ever be resolved. Who knows how many gargoyles would die out by then?"
  • Half-Face: And then the rest was history. The cold was too much for us to handle and it caused us to lose, and get banished to this place.
  • King George: "Now the least I can do for my people is simply take our land back, no questions asked. I haven't truely given up on ponies, but I have stopped trying to make a bad situation better. Too many Gargoyles are too angry and infuriated by the sins of the war. They couldn't accept that it was all purely the fault of bad timing! It was obvious after what became of the alicorns that the last things the ponies wanted to see was any form of creature, let alone us. I mean, look at us! Do we honestly look like the first thing any troubled race wants to see after losing a majority of their gods?"
  • Elder Mokoma: "Obviously not. To them, we look like something Tartarus would spawn. I can get that, but they're the ones who really pushed it. They also took the Judu Des clan too seriously. AND it was BEFORE Dred and Shred showed up."
  • King George: "Well, at least I can acknowledge that the ponies were only guilty of submiting to their depression and the unrelenting cold of the Windigoes. But too many of my people can't see that. They're too absolute. They want them either dead or gone. And if I don't adhere to that, my crown will be given to a far worse Gargoyle who will only proceed to further demonise us."
  • Half-Face: "And that would be a pisser if that happened."
  • King George: So THAT'S why we need to do this. Our people are suffering greatly and are being completely unreasonable. They're just too determined to make those ponies suffer because of what they did to our homes, and our families! Too many gargoyles were killed to even allow my people to show ANY sign of mercy to them.
  • Tecmeck: Sheesh, tough crowd. Maybe we ARE beasts.
  • King George: We are NOT beasts, Half-Face! My people are just ACTING like beasts because they want revenge. And if I don't do as they say, then I WILL be replaced. Hopefully, Man-Vulture is giving us a chance to fight back and be protected from the Elements of Harmony.
  • Mokoma: Well, that's dandy! Our revenge is going to be perfect. Plus, they'll never be able to find us.... Even though we never really left the Goyland caves, of which they know exists. How does that suppose to work!?
  • Tecmeck: "I hear Celestia has a bad hapit of keeping unpleasent history obscured. Most likely she never allowed the Goyland Caves to be mapped, so, by all grounds, it doesn't exist on maps."
  • Elfwork: "Well, it kinda ended up working against them, along with NOT sealing the caves in!"
  • Tecmeck: "They actselly were, but Clover the Clever came and brought to light our real darn intentions and the cave-sealing was kinda canceled as a result. Though on a stragitic level, it would've been plumb smarter to do it anyway to ever keep us from coming back, and should've figured that our people's too dang ornery to get over it."
  • Elder Mokoma: Well, I brought it up to begin with is, from what I heard, those lollipops have been searching for us for eons just to apologize, and have NEVER done so. If they didn't find us before, how will they find us NOW?
  • King George: If I were you, I wouldn't be so foolish as to underestimate those ponies. They'll figure out a way to find us no matter what we do. That's why we need to move in, and move out, leaving no visible traces behind. Darkness is a trusted friend to us, and it helps us seclude ourselves from the watchful eyes of ponies. That's our most valuable way of keeping our location a secret.... In, a sense. Cause, they know Goyland Cave exists, they just neglected to map it and thus in tecnecally, doesn't even exist to pony maps. So if you think that ponies will never find us because they haven't before, then you're CLEARLY underestimating their intelligence.
  • Mokoma: Sorry, your highness.
  • King George: Now, then, I must check up on our newest ally. He did well in providing us with the locations of all the Wonderbolts' bases, as well as all their tactics and skills.
  • Tecmeck: Damn right! I'm kinda surprise he's even helping us, considering who he is though. Never thought the fella would do that to them.
  • King George: "..... Like us, tragity has brought out his worse. And given where he came from, who and how am I to blame him for his actions."

Gargoyle Dungeon

  • Wonderbolt #1: (They were thrown into the cell)... LET US OUT OF HERE YOU BEASTS!!!
  • Jibb: Watch your racist words, you little mules! Don't make me use this sword-hand!
  • Spinok: Jibb, the king ordered us to keep them ALIVE! I do not care if they use racist remarks or even if they were to insult your mother, I will not allow you to make even a single scar on their heads!
  • Jibb: You'll start to care if they start referring to you as bête, crouton!
  • Spinok: Well even then, the worse I would do is reply with a witty retort and mock them on acting uncivilised about their situation, as unfortunate as it is. How the hell do you even know what that word is in French?
  • Jibb: A French pony said it before I tore out his head-hair and left him a cue-ball! The next best thing I like from killing ponies is scaring them for life?!
  • Spinok: "Oh there you again, further making yourself look uncivilised. I advised you at least show the decenty to shut up before you mark a periment bad exsample in their minds."
  • Jibb: "They already hate us, frenchy! That war is proof of it! Why should I bother acting like a damn Democrate to them?!"
  • ???: You'd better listen to him, Elder! (Man-Vulture himself appeared)... I mean, you DO want to be immune to the Elements of Harmony, right? It will be easy for them to use those things. You'd be defeated before you could even harm one hair on their bodies. Unless you want that to happen, you will leave these ponies alive!
  • Jibb: "Well, yeah I do want that, but THAT DOESN'T MEAN I SHOULD TAKE THOSE PONIES INSULTS AND-"
  • Man-Vulture grabs Jibb by the throat and strangles him!
  • Man-Vulture: "YES, IT DOES, IMBACLE?! Their insults are not true opinions. They are bait-words designed to trick you into trying to go after them, then take advanture of your less faster lumbering frame and lack of flight and escape! THEN EVERYTHING WILL BE RUINED?! THEY'LL REVEIL THAT THE GARGOYLES ARE INDEED STILL ALIVE AND IN HERE, WE HAD NO MEANS TO PROTECT AGAINST THEIR ELEMENTAL POWERS, AND WE'D BE OVER-WEALMED BY THE TIME PRINCESS CELESTIA EVEN ARRIVES?! (SLAMS JIBB INTO THE WALL), DO YOU UNDERSTAND, YOU SHAM OF A GARGOYLE?!"
  • Jibb: ".... (Painfully) Affirmative, Man-Vulture sir!"
  • Man-Vulture: "Good. (Lets go of the elder as he fell face first as comical sounds are heard.)"
  • Jibb's voice: "Damn it."
  • Man-Vulture turns to the wonderbolt team.....
  • Man-Vulture: "(Sighs). I would've loved it if it was the alpha team, but, I suppose these lessers will do."
  • Wonderbolt 1: "What do you want with us? And why didn't the Gargoyles killed us off?"
  • Man-Vulture: "As you most likely already heard, they obeyed my orders to not to. I'm also the reason why these people never attempted to attack Equestia by now and reclaimed the land they lost. I warned them of your people's weaponised harmony powers and how threats that would make them look like mere insects have failed in their own such attempts. It was so I can devise a way to get defence against these powers, and, luckly.... Such an idea came when the creature Starfem came to mind."
  • Wonderbolt 3: "Wait, you mean the freaky Bat-Pony lady?"
  • Wonderbolt 2: "Why interested in her? She was just as defeated by the elements as the rest of them."
  • Man-Vulture: "Ahhhh..... But she wasn't defeated right away by the elements, was she? Being part pony, she had purity, ergo, giving the gargoyles purity serum will serve as biological sheilds against even all the elemental gems combined."
  • Wonderbolt 4: "HA! How do you know that won't end up back-firing on you and the elements used that purity sheild against them, ya quack!?"
  • Jibb: "WHY I OUGHTA-"
  • Spinok stuffed his hand into Jibb's face.
  • Man-Vulture: "I considered that a possability. And yes, I am aware that Starfem was defeated eventally. Her drawback is that she never fully-capitialised on her purity genes. I, on the otherhand, plan to take it to an extreme messure. As for your serum back-firing throey, indeed, just giving the Gargoyles' purity and leaving them at risk of being unintentionally cured of their anger is not an inheredly perfect solution. No plan is entirely flaw-free. But, I aim to at least make it well protected from those such flaws. And I do have an emergency plan in mind."
  • ???: "Yeah, and he's walking into the room, folks."
  • A Fire-Themed Stallian was seen in a costume simular to the Shadow Bolts walked in.
  • Wonderbolts: "..... (Quietly) Acidburn."
  • Man-Vulture: "Ahh, Acid. We were just talking about you."
  • Acidburn: "And our kickass plan to devide those over-rated elemental babes by cohersing Rainbow Crash and Lightning Bust onto our side."
  • Jibb: "Wait, I thought their names were Rainbow Dash and Lightning Dust."
  • Spinok: "They're insults, you baffoon."
  • Jibb: "Oh....... HEY?!"
  • Segnal: Wait, wait, wait! Is THAT the one who revealed the location of the Wonderbolt HQs?
  • Wonderbolts: HE DID WHAT?!?
  • Spinok: "As a matter of fact, yes.... And why does that concern you, as if I don't already know what your gonna complain and moan about?"
  • Segnal: Okay, 1. He's a pony! 2. Why would he betray his own people? 3. He's a pony! 4. How did he find us? 5. HE'S A MOTHERF****** PONY!!!
  • Spinok: You said that twice already!
  • Segnal: I WAS TRYING TO GET A POINT ACROSS! Also, why are we not killing him right now? Seriously, you fellas seein' this? (Takes out his bat) I say we beat on his skull until we hit tonsils! (None of the gargoyles responded)... What the hell is you guys' problem? THERE'S A FREAKIN' PONY IN OUR MIDST!!!
  • Spinok: Yes, there's a pony! But it's okay!
  • Segnal:... Okay? What'sa matter, you freakin' stupid? Why would we EVER ally ourselves with him?
  • Spinok: Well, the entire clan is fully aware of Acidburn. It was explained during the king's last speech. You were just too excited in waiting to knock some heads in to pay attention and RUDELY ignored our king's acknowledgement.
  • Segnal:... Ohhh..... I really should try to pay attention to those! Okay, does anybody wanna explain what the hell gives, and why we have agreed not to turn this pony into a mule? I mean, seriously, doesn't it make us look like hypocrites that we say we hate those horses and yet we're freaking working with one?! That's kinda gonna make other pony haters think that we're not being serious about this and-
  • Man-Vulture: "Segnal, it is simply NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!?"
  • Segnal: "But I just wanna-"
  • Man-Vulture grabbed Segnal's throat!
  • Man-Vulture: "IF YOUR GONNA WASTE OUR TIME WITH STUPID QUESTIONS, THEN I SUGGEST YOU LEAVE, YOU IGNORENT WASTE OF SPACE!?"
  • Segnal: "(Strained), Ok, ok, I'm out!"
  • Man-Vulture angerly tossed Seganl out as Segnal screamed!
  • Comical crashes and sounds were heard.
  • Segnal's voice: "..... That didn't hurt."
  • Acidburn: "..... That guy was a twat."
  • Spinok: "Oui, but he's our twat."
  • Wonderbolt 1: "Your wasting your time with this and them, Acid. Nothing breaks the elemental barers' bonds."
  • Acidburn: "Well, maybe not turning them into their oppistes or their extremes would stop them, but..... How well can they handle..... Guy trouble?"
  • Wonderbolt 2: "Wait, that depends..... Has a guy ever come inbetween their friendship?"
  • Wonderbolt 4: "Well, Trenderhoof in a sense did when he fell in love with Applejack-"
  • Acidburn: "That doesn't count! I mean, when Lightning gets too into a guy, while, according to my best shorces, she is suppose to learn more about wonderbolt history."
  • Wonderbolt 2: "..... That's your plan? Simply just, ruin Lightning Dust's chances of being a wonderbolt and then somehow drag Dash into it? I kinda doubt that would work!"
  • Acidburn: "It's smarter then it sounds. I'll make Lightning Bust so distracted from what she is suppose to do, she'll be eating from the palm of my.... Hoof. It's a known fact that Lightning Dust doesn't have a known boyfriend. She's single and has failed matchmaking many times."
  • Wonderbolt 3: "Yeah, odds are kinda against you on being able to woo her, Burn."
  • Acidburn: "But that's the thing. She doesn't know I exist. As far as she's aware, (opens his mask to reveil a normal face), I'm just another guy."
  • Wonderbolt 2: "The lougers will stop you!"
  • Acidburn: "Are YOU kidding? They don't even know we exist! And they can't stop, what doesn't exist. And don't think Sis-Fire would warn them, because thanks to Celestia's bad hapit of keeping shit a secret, as far as they're aware, she's an only child."
  • Man-Vulture: "Remember not to get careless like that. Underestimation has lead to the downfalls of greater forces before."
  • Acidburn: "Relax, Manny. I am not underestimating them. I am just insisting that by the time the misfits ARE aware, there'll be very little they can do to stop us. And now, without further ado, (removes his costume), I'm off to woe a silly over-hyping mare."
  • Acidburn flies off.
  • Jibb: "(Grumbles)..... I bet ya six Gar-coins he ends up actselly falling in love with the bitch."
  • Spinok: "10 saids your own."
  • Man-Vulture cleared his throat to order obedience.
  • Man-Vulture: "Gentlemen.... Have more faith in Acidburn then that."
  • Spinok: "I mean no ill-will on the pony. But do remember that their purity keeps them from truely following dark paths. And we can't deny that vengence is in of itself, a dark path. Some careful planning, and Acidburn might end up being used against us."
  • Man-Vulture: "I never said I am not aware of it. I am merely saying to be trusting to Acidburn's abilities. But worry not. I do have a back-up plan should Acidburn's purity get cleansed from it's current taint from his, rather unfortunate past. Elfwork insisted that a speical spell will keep his purity from being untainted for as long as the spell itself isn't cleasned, nor that of it's original caster. By all means, I trust Acid as an individual and a partner. It's the purity is the trust issue. And for as long as the spell is stable and nothing happens to cleanse it or the caster Elfwork, then I think Acidburn would stay a relieable ally."
  • Spinok: "But alchourse sir."
  • Jibb: "I'm still not withholding my bet!"
  • Spinok: "Then someone will be a few pretty gar-pennies short, then. (Laughs as Jib growls)."
  • Man-Vulture: "If you two are gonna bicker, take it outside. I need silence when I commence to collect samples."
  • The two Gargoyles leave, but Segnal came back.
  • Segnal:... I'm still confused-
  • Man-Vulture: I SAID OUT!
  • Segnal: I'M GOIN', I'M GOIN', I'M GOIN'!! (Runs off)
  • Man-Vulture: "..... Now, if there is to be no further interuptions."
  • Wonderbolt #4:... I need an adult!
  • Man-Vulture: I am an adult.
  • Man-Vulture bared his claws to the Wonderbolts as the shadow of the hidious claws are seen casted over them.
  • Man-Vulture: "I promise you..... The Pain, will be brief."

Meanwhile...

  • Lightning: (They all arrived at the Celestial Coliseum as it was currently run down)... Well, this is it!
  • Rainbow Dash: The exact place where the Wonderbolts were starting to originate.
  • Lightning:... I'm still a little iffy on performing in a crowd of over a thousand ponies!
  • Rainbow Dash: C'MOOOOON! It's not THAT bad! Whatever the Wonderbolts and General Firefly did in that performance is going to be legendary! The whole world of Equestria DEPENDED on that performance!
  • Lightning:...(Gulps)...That only makes me feel more tense!
  • Twilight: Just stop worrying and get it over with, Lightning! It's not going to matter what happens! Everything will be fine!
  • Lightning:...What if I end up screwing up the performance?
  • Twilight: It's only a simulation. Nothing you do is going to make a difference, simulations are not the same as going back in time and seeing the actual thing.
  • Lightning:... You sure?
  • Twilight: Positive. Now go!
  • Lightning:... Alright! (Flies into the stadium as the setting changes when she lands, seeing an entire crowd of ponies within the Coliseum, and squires were heard playing)
  • Celestia: (Appears, and speaks in royal voice)... MY GOOD CITIZENS OF EQUESTRIA! WE ARE GATHERED HERE TODAY TO CELEBRATE THE FIRST CELESTIAL YEAR OF PEACE, AND THE FOUNDING OF THE ELITE E.U.P GUARD! AS YOU ARE ALL AWARE, MY SISTER WILL NO LONGER BE AMONG US! BUT WE MUST LEARN TO COPE WITH HER LOSS AND COMEMMORATE HER HONOR! SO, WE SHALL HONOR BOTH HER AND THIS NEW ERA OF PEACE AS WE DEDICATE THESE PONIES' PERFORMANCE TO THE E.U.P GUARD WHICH WILL BRING US HOPE IN SUCH A HARD TIME! NOW, LET THE PERFORMANCES BEGIN! (Everyone applauds)
  • Lightning:... (Suddenly, a pony guard approaches her)
  • Pony Guard: Hey! What're you doing? You're supposed to be with Firefly's platoon!
  • Lightning: Uh... Sure... Uh... Where is that?
  • Pony Guard:... What do you mean where is that? Don't you know?
  • Lightning: Look, I'm... Just a rookie, and I don't know my way around this place. This is the first time I've been here.
  • Pony Guard:... Oh, well, why didn't you just say so? Come with me.

Firefly's Platoon Room

  • General Firefly:... Well, ponies, we perform in 10 minutes! And you've gotten PLENTY of time to prepare. So I advise we stop horsing around and MAKE THE PRINCESS PROUD!
  • Soldiers: YES, SIR!
  • Pony Guard: (Comes in with Lightning) Sir! I believe this is yours!
  • General Firefly: Oh, there you are! Where the buck have you been?
  • Lightning: I... I got lost.
  • General Firefly: Oh, you got lost, huh? What were YOU doing over the past 40 hours, worrying that you'd screw up the performance?
  • Lightning: No! I was just-
  • General Firefly: Don't answer that! I don't care! You got here, and that's all that matters!
  • Lightning: Oh, heh, for a second there, I thought you were gonna be mad at me!
  • General Firefly: So what if I was? And don't think I won't tolerate your tardiness, soldier! Because you're a rookie, I'll take it easy on you. Just know that if it happens again, I'll make you do over 9000 wing-ups! GOT THAT?!?
  • Lightning: YES, SIR!!
  • General Firefly: Good. Now get in formation! (Lightning did that)
  • Soldier Pony #2:... Eh, don't worry about the General, rookie! He's always that way, even to somepony he respects.
  • Lightning: (Chuckles) Yeah!
  • Soldier Pony #2: You nervous?
  • Lightning: (Laughs) Of course not! I wanna break a leg out there!
  • Soldier Pony #2: Oh, you'll break more than a leg as far as I'm concerned with rookies. What we're about to perform is death-defying! It's going to blow the Princess's mind!
  • Lightning:... Death... Defying?
  • Soldier Pony #2: (Chuckles) I like you, rookie! You got a sense of humor! The name's Private Jinx Fury by the way!
  • Lightning:... Lightning Dust! (The two shook)... ("I...I must say, for a soldier, he seems kinda nice, even to a washout rookie!")
  • (Oak Golden): ("Yes, Jinx Fury was one of the greatest in the performance the early Wonderbolts did. He comes from a long line of pegasi who performed in the Coliseum before, and his legacy still lives on to this very day. In fact, his family is almost related to the Spitfire family as they have reproduced over 20 times, and their current descendant is a ninth cousin three times removed.
  • Lightning:... What does 'three times removed' even mean?
  • (Oak Golden): (Sighs) Just forget I said that! Let's just say the two families kinda share similar biology.
  • Jinx: Hey, Lights, you okay?
  • Lightning: Uh, yes, I was just... Uh... Thinking.
  • Jinx: Thinking about what?
  • Lightning: About what technique to use in the performance.
  • Jinx: Oh, pfft, it won't matter what you use. As long as we stick together.

Back at the Collusium.

  • Acidburn secretly arrived and waited in the shadows.
  • The Main 7 were seen in the seats.
  • Rainbow Dash: "I can't believe that I got to see one of the most historic ever Wonderbolt games!"
  • Royal Councils were seen along side Celestia, including Stiffbutt.
  • A Royal Announcer was seen.
  • Royal Announcer: "A-PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPRESENTING, THE E.U.PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP-P GUARD!?"
  • Pinkie: "(Quickly) I think that guy as a moter-boating speech impediment problem."
  • As the crowd cheers, the E.U.P. guard, and Lightning zoomed in and an unbelievable display was seen as Lightning was a little rusty, yet was able to lighten the display the Wonderbolts gave.
  • This went on for a minute until suddenly, A figure knocks Lightning Dust down to the shock of the Main 7 and the Simulations.
  • Lightning crashed into the ground.
  • The figure was reveiled to be Acidburn!
  • Acidburn: "Oh my gosh, miss, I am SO sorry!"
  • Lightning Dust: "It's cool bro, just try to watch where (Sees Acidburn)...... Your....... Hot- Duh, I mean..... Going......"
  • Acidburn: "I heard alot of communtion here, so I came to investigate, and when I did, suddenly everything looked as if it was the beginning of the Luna Banishment Era again."
  • Lightning Dust: "Oh, don't worry. That's just Twilight conjuring up a historic simulator about the Wonderbolts so I won't fail my exam."
  • Acidburn: "Really? Well, that's sweet of them. Well, if that's all what's been going on, guess I better-"
  • Lightning Dust: "WAIT! Your..... Welcome to stay."
  • Acidburn gave a brief smug smirk.
  • Acidburn: "Ohhh, little ol' me? I'd be delighted to."
  • Acidburn and Lightning Dust flew up.
  • Lightning Dust: "I, didn't get your name."
  • Acidburn: "Acidburn. But you can call me A.B. if ya like."
  • Lightning Dust: "I'm Lightning Dust. You might be familier with the Dust clan."
  • Acidburn: "THE DUST CLAN!? The defeaters of the Black Orc?"
  • Lightning Dust: "TWICE! And I was the one who killed him!"
  • Acidburn: "Nice! I heard so many awesome things about you!"
  • Lightning Dust: "Ya did!?"
  • Acidburn: "Yeah! Say, I kinda don't think that being in simulated history is proper conversation zone, so, ya mind if we-?"
  • Lightning Dust: Oh why not? It's not gonna change anything, so, we're out!?
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn flew off to everyone's confusion!
  • Stiffbutt: "What, wha, WELL I NEVER?!"
  • Firefly looked incredably pissed off!
  • Celestia was bewildered.
  • Twilight face-hoofed as the others stared confused, shocked, or unimpressed.
  • Rarity: "Oh dear, I know where this is going."
  • Starlight: "She did NOT, just ditched us for a boy!"
  • Pinkie: "Ha! That sounded very High-Schoolian of you!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "SHE DID NOT JUST FLEW OFF OF THE MOST HISTORIC OF ALL WONDERBOLT EVENTS!? WHO THE HELL WAS THAT GUY?!"
  • Chow Mein: "Safe bet HE ain't part of the simulation, that's for sure!?"
  • Spike: "Ohhh boy. Is this gonna be one of THOSE episodes?"

Elsewhere in a local Amusement Park.

  • Acidburn and Lightning Dust were seen having fun.
  • Acidburn: "You see, I kinda came from a family of high expectations and.... I just failed to meet them."
  • Lightning Dust: "Wow.... I kinda started out that way too. Eventally I met my family's legacy expectations through friends. I'm sure we can help you do the same."
  • Acidburn looked legitamently sad.....
  • Acidburn: "....... Trust me, that's, not impourent to the grand sceame of things."
  • Lightning Dust: "Well, what is?"
  • Acidburn: "..... Making your own choices and your own life, even if it's crazy...."
  • Lightning Dust: "Well, I'm kinda doing that."
  • Acidburn: "Kinda's the key word here. Your following a pre-determined desteny set by your family. Wouldn't've it be cool to, do something different with your life?"
  • Lightning Dust: "..... Well..... I'm, worried about if whether or not I end up being able to get with the Wonderbolts..... What's there for me then?"
  • Acidburn: "..... Your own life..... And It would be awesome to share it with ya."
  • Lightning Dust: "(Music starts playing)..... Same here...... Hey, can I say something crazy?"
  • Acidburn: "I, LOVE, crazy."

This song plays.

4. Love Is an Open Door - Frozen (OST)

  • Acidburn: "...... Can I say something crazy?"
  • Lightning Dust: "I can dig crazy."
  • Acidburn: "Will you, spend alittle more time with me?"
  • Lightning Dust: "Can I say something crazier? HELL YEAH!?"
  • ???: LIGHTNING DUST!!! (The Mane Seven arrived)
  • Rainbow Dash: Just what the hell are you doing? You're SUPPOSED to be studying with the simulations! I wanna know who this stranger is and-
  • Acidburn: Uh, look here ladies, we've been having a good time together, and we kinda don't want a bunch of spoil-sports ruining that. So leave!
  • Applejack: Uh, leave? Why? You just interrupted our studies!
  • Rainbow Dash: Yeah, I mean, what kind of nerve have you got to do that? She needs to learn by her exam week, and you're starting to distract her!
  • Acidburn: Look, lady, I was just taking a free flight to the Coliseum, and next thing I know, it's in the middle of the Luna Banishment Era! And the NEXT thing I know after that is I meet this BEAUTIFUL pony!
  • Rainbow Dash:... Are you kidding me? You're SERIOUSLY in love at a time like this, Lightning? You shouldn't even trust strangers, even if he's an albeit kinda cute looking guy! I mean, I don't feel a good vibe coming from him. He HAD to have a motive in interrupting your studies!
  • Lightning: I wouldn't expect YOU to understand!
  • Twilight: Oh, we understand! We understand that you can't even stay focused on what's more important for even a couple of seconds. It's no wonder you're failing in the first place!
  • Acidburn: Hey now, there's no reason to bad mouth your friend like that. A small break wouldn't really hurt and-
  • Rainbow Dash: Hey, buster, you're not involved in this!
  • Acidburn: I'm feeling pretty involved through.
  • Twilight: Lightning, you WANT to be a Wonderbolt, don't you? We're only trying to help you, and you're not making it easier for us by hanging out with a stranger! So you're going to have to choose! It's either your studies or that guy!
  • Rarity: "Is it REALLY advisable to ask Lightning Dust to make a choice in the matter? You might not really like her answer."
  • Twilight: "Are you assuming that Lightning Dust would actselly pick some random guy over-"
  • Lightning Dust: "I CHOOSE ACIDBURN!?"
  • Twilight was shocked!
  • Lightning Dust: "...... Look, Twi, I'm sorry, but, I don't think I have a shot at becoming a wonderbolt anyway. If I had to relie on freaky hocus pocus to just pass a stupid exam, then.... I just don't have what it takes."
  • Rainbow Dash: "BUT THE FUCK EVER HAPPENED TO ALL THOSE DREAMS YOU WANTED?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "That's, the thing about dreams guys...... You wake up. All the same Dash, congrates on being a Wonderbolt though. You earned it more then I could ever. I mean, come on! I'm pretty much the last ever pony to ever be allowed even in the reserves, let alone the actual team! You guys are aware on how much of a damn screw-up I am anyway! Who was I kidding trying to meet high expectations! Acid tried to meet the same expectations of his family, and failed! Poor guy has no one left who would actselly cared about him. (Acidburn was caught off guard by that.) Until I came in. Perhaps..... I was just not meant to be a wonderbolt..... The simulation stuff was fun, but, it's time to think about what can actselly be realisticly possable. You don't have to be happy for me and Acid, but at least respect my final choice on this matter. (Wing hugs Acidburn) Come on babe, let's continue enjoying ourselves."
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn turned their backs on the group.
  • Rainbow Dash huffed angerly and air-bucked as she turned around and left.
  • The Defeated other 6 of the Seven simply look sad, broken and confused and left.
  • Acidburn looked incredabily conflicted. He succeeded with what he was set to do, but he never expected Lightning Dust to actselly admit to care for him that easily and quickly, figuring that she would put her dreams before her true heart's desires, something others never really done before to him. She actselly sacriviced her dreams of being a Wonderbolt, for someone she barely even knows..... Acidburn feels some part of him mended, but he remembered that he's doing this for a greater grand sceame, and mentally told himself to stick to the plan.

Ponyville.

  • Rarity: "You see Twilight, in almost every romantic novel, it is NEVER a good idea to give a confused lover a choice in the matter! That will only drive the conflict deeper! Honestly, for a bookworm, I'm surprised you've never figured THAT one out!"
  • Twilight: "COULD YOU PLEASE NOT RUB IT IN, RARITY!? I get it! I should've just dragged Lightning Dust by her tail and force her to resume her study, but that is just not how Celestia expects me to be!"
  • Rarity: "Ya know, even Celestia of all ponies knows when to put her hoof down, even at the cost of looking alittle cruel! But no! Instead, you allowed Lightning Dust to deside that her dreams aren't atthiveable anymore when she can easily gained rush romance! And it probuly didn't help that we accused the colt of something! As far as really all of us know, he just came in at unfortunate circumstances."
  • Twilight: "Are, are, ARE YOU INSINUATING SOMETHING!?"
  • Rarity: "I'm just saying you should've avoided the conflict by not being self-rightious about the matter. Honestly, expecting a self-respecting mare to choose her ambigiously possable dreams over her heart? I hate to say that your relationship with Flash Sentry might be in question!"
  • Twilight: "ARE YOU ACCUSING ME OF CHOOSING MY PRINCESS DUTY OVER FLASH!?"
  • Rarity: "If the horseshoe fits, wear it! Obviously, you don't spend too much time with Flash Sentry."
  • Twilight: "THAT'S BECAUSE OUR DUTIES ARE ARITRARY?! WE'RE NOT MUCH ALLOWED TO HAVE ANY FREETIME!?"
  • Rarity: "Oh? And what do you call going on extravigent adventures into the world of Equestia and beyond? If those duties don't even keep you from getting involved in life-changing journeys, I see practicly NO excuse neglecting your signifigant other!"
  • Twilight: "THOSE ARE DIFFERENT?! ALSO, BEING A GUARD IS PRETTY MUCH A 24/7 JOB!? EVEN IF HE WANTED TO, HE'S NOT MUCH ALLOWED TO LEAVE HIS POST?!"
  • Rarity: "Oh be honest Twilight, would Flash being around make much of a true difference? Our canon show ALONE deminstraights that the guards are not very effictent that their job! THEY COULDN'T, EVEN, PROTECT CELESTIA AND LUNA, FROM PLANTS?! PLANTS!? Hell, this one time, three guards accepted a cake bribe from a disguised Wind Rider! I really must insist that Celestia makes an effert to reform the standerds of the guard! Other nations probuly think that pony guards are nothing but a battalion of baffoons!"
  • Twilight: "MY BROTHER'S PART OF THEM!?"
  • Rarity: "I meant no intentional ill will for your brother, but it's clear he's not being a very postive influence to the guard! If anything, he might, though I trust unintentionally, have something to do with their bumbling! I mean, he even CRIES at weddings! Granted, there's nothing wrong with a staillian with emotion, but I don't think that's proper guard captain behavior! He can't even handle a baby, Alicorn or not! HIS OWN BABY NO LESS!"
  • Twilight: "TAKE, THAT, (MAGIC FLARES WILDLY), BACK!?"
  • Rarity: "(Sarcasticly unimpressed) Ohhhh, I'm sooooo scared. (Seriously) But I'll be blunt, Twilight. I have made my guns, and I'm sticking to them, and I have no actual fear of you harming one of your friends. I am just being honest here."
  • Twilight was snarling like a dog, before Starlight stopped her with a hoof-touched onto her shoulder.....
  • Starlight: "..... Twilight, I see you as someone who rise above that sort've thing. We're all hurt and confused, Twilight. Don't make the same mistakes the old me would've made."
  • Applejack: "I'm kinda with Starlight there, Twi. Though Rarity DID crossed the boundery line, she does have some points on you not being firm with Lightning Dust. You were basicly allowing a mare who made dumb-founding desidions before to make her own desidtion and expect her to be smart about it? I mean, seriously, Lightning Dust? The mare almost respondsable for our deaths with a tornado, doesn't do a mighty good job with impressing matchmakers, and just now made a contraption that almost could've crashed into town? That doesn't sound like somepony I let makin' their own choices."
  • Twilight: "(Calming down)..... But.... But I thought she considered being a wonderbolt impourent..... More then anything."
  • Rainbow Dash was seen on a cloud, brooding and shedding silent tears.
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Well clearly she doesn't anymore. If she thinks some dude's more impourent then being a wonderbolt, who the HELL are we to force her?"
  • Fluttershy: "...... You're taking this really hard, aren't you, Dashie?"
  • Rainbow Dash quickly sprung up, angry face full of tears!
  • Rainbow Dash: "WHAT THE F*** DO YOU THINK, ZOOPHILE?! OF COURSE I'M UPSET ABOUT THIS?! WHAT?! DID YOU THINK I'M LAYING DOWN ANGERLY ON THIS (STOMPS ON RAGING STORM CLOUD AND CAUSED SOME LIGHTNING TO HAPPEN) F***ING CLOUD, UPSET AND HURT, BETRAYED BY WHAT COULD'VE BEEN AN AWESOME PARTNER, FIGHTING BACK TEARS IN MY EYES WAS PART OF A NEW DANCE CRAZE?!? (Makes the same face she made in the Tanks for the Memories episode)."
  • Fluttershy: "..... Oh..... My......"
  • Starlight: "Ok, girls, it's OBVIOUS that we need to cool our heads over this before we end up saying or even doing more things we'll later regret."
  • Applejack: "Starlight made a good point. Pinkie, your gonna have to throw some "Feeling Better" parties for Twi and Rainbow cause-"
  • Suddenly, the mares were surrounded by such a thing!
  • Pinkie: "(Finishing off decrorating a cake) WAAAAAY Ahead of you, A.J."
  • Rainbow Dash was surprised by the change of scene..... She looked as if she recovered abit from her latest tirade.
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Chuckles), Pinkie Pie, You're so random."
  • Twilight:... That kinda doesn't make me feel any better, though. I still feel a little bit skeptical. What if we were right about Acidburn? I mean, he HAD to be there for a reason.
  • Rainbow Dash: "Well, like Rarity said, maybe he just came in at a bad time. I mean, let's be honest. Those simulations are not exactly stealthy. Even Derpy would've noticed them."
  • Twilight: ".... Good point, I mean, history being magicly re-created could've gotten ANYONE's attention. But still..... It just seemed TOO convinent for that Acidburn guy to just SHOW UP from nowhere. We DON'T even know who he is."
  • Pinkie: "Though, he kinda reminded me of Spitfire, but as a dude."
  • Silence.....
  • The Main 7 ponies laughed!
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Laughs)! Like what, your saying that Acidburn's Spitfire's brother or something?! (Laughs)! Come on! Everyone knows that Spitfire was an only child! Every offitcal wonderbolts' mercentdice said it! Like, seriously!"
  • Pinkie: "Just an observation, girls."
  • Spike and Chow Mein were seen eating cake.
  • Spike: "(Stuffed with cake) So, how are we gonna handle a guy we know nothing about?"
  • ???: "AHEM!"
  • The Spybug came in.
  • Sandy's voice: "Don't tell me ya'll forget about us, did ya? We said we were gonna keep watch with the Spybug, remember?"
  • Starlight: "Oh. Right. The Lougers."
  • Sandy's voice: "Anyway, we saw about everything that happened and kept track. We even saw those two sang that song from Frozen."
  • Pinkie: "Ohh, you mean (Suddenly Dresses like Elza) Let it go, Let it go! I'm one with the wind and skaaaaaaa-eeeeyyyy!? Let it go, Let it go! You'll never see me cr-"
  • Squidward's voice: "No. Not THAT one."
  • Pinkie: "Oh, is it "Fixer Upper?" Olaf's song? "First time in forever"? The Starting song? That song where Elsa and Anna singed togather? Ohh, I get it! (Suddenly dresses like Anna) Do you wanna build a snowma-"
  • Icky's voice: "OH MY GOD, ARE YOU RETARDED!? IT'S THE SONG ANNA AND HANS SUNG TOGATHER YA PINK DIPSHIT!? (Smack) OW?!"
  • Pinkie: "Ohhhhh. You mean "Love's an Open Door". Ok."
  • Sandy's voice: "Anyway, we agree with Twilight that there is something up, but on closer expansion, it's only to a certain extent. (The Spybug uses a holographic screen to replay footage from the Carnaval and shows where Acidburn looks conflicted about this.)..... See this? That's the face of someone with a guilty consience conflicted with personal business. If this guy was looking to cause trouble, he wasn't expecting Lightning Dust to actselly sacrivice everything fer him."
  • Starlight: "Well if so, what does he have to gain from interfearing a future Wonderbolt's test?"
  • Sandy's voice: "I'm guessing that based on what we reconed, he was a former student who failed, most likely miserablely."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Then that could mean he's trying to turn Lightning Dust into a Wonderbolt hater!"
  • Sandy's voice: "Now I wouldn't say that. He could just as easily be trying to lead her away from the place that most likely broke his dreams and protect her from ending up the same. Only, he wasn't expecting to be successful at it."
  • Fluttershy: "Well, at least that means he's not dangerious or anything."
  • Sandy's voice: "Well, that's what's worrying us. Soothsayer has a concerning feeling that he's only part of a bigger picture. It could be more then just an ex-fan. This "Acidburn" guy could be a major issue a-waitin' to happen."
  • Twilight: "Then we need your help in trying to get Lightning away from him. She might not listen to us alone cause-"
  • Icky's voice: "Ya stupidly made the same clished mistake of letting the lover make her own choice? Yeah, we saw that."
  • Twilight: "..... Right. But, I don't nessersarly want to make Lightning Dust hate Acidburn. I just want her to understand that Acidburn might not be good for her real dreams."
  • Sandy's voice: "I got ya, ya'll want Lightning Dust to remember her true self, but ya don't wanna make her hate Acidburn."
  • Icky's voice: "But falling out relationships usually END in hatred."
  • Twilight: "Hey, I don't WANT to destroy their relationship! Destroying a blossuming romance, even a rushed one, IS UNREDEEMABLY EVIL!?"
  • Icky's voice: "..... Is that what Candence told you or is that apart of your "Friendship Religen" stuff?"
  • Twilight: "Kinda, both."
  • (Icky): Look, I think this relationship they formed was what this Acidburn guy was DEPENDING on! I mean, I can't see a pony NOT falling for him with a face like that. I bet he was so handsome, he was an extreme chick magnet, and all the girls were going putty in his pants too much like Squidward when HE was handsome!
  • (Squidward): Yeah, I can tell! That might be why we've never heard of him. He was so handsome, he hid himself from the public.
  • Fluttershy:... Doesn't that sound a little crazy?
  • (Icky): I mean, think about it! Do ANY of you girls get that vibe from him? (The ponies were a little skeptical)... I'll take that as a yes.
  • Rarity: WE WERE NOT LIKE THAT!!!... Well... Maybe we were a little bit, but he was just a stranger who dropped by and ruined Lightning's studies as if that's what he WANTED to do.
  • (Kowalski): And that pretty much feels accurate. We're still gonna need to talk to someone about this.
  • Icky's Voice: "And our best chance is the Wonderbolts since we were talking about this guy being some kind of drop-out."
  • ???: "Rainbow Dash!"
  • Spitfire and the Alpha Wonderbolt team arrived!
  • Spitfire: "My dad majorly needs to talk to you about (Gasps when she saw the halogram of Acidburn)........ You already saw him....."
  • Starlight: "You know him?"
  • Spitfire: "Uh, well, dad was insistent that Rainbow Dash should know first before we tell everyone else."
  • Applejack: "..... Say, Pinkie..... Remember when ya said Acidburn makes you think of Spitfire as a fella?"
  • Pinkie: "(Begins looking at the Hologram of Acidburn and Spitfire back to back)...... Sayyyyyy. Your right! No offence, Spitfire, but Acidburn DOES kinda look like you as a dude!"
  • Applejack: "Spitfire, is there something ya'll ain't being honest about?"
  • Spitfire: "..... Look, I'm instructed to only make Rainbow Dash know, and I am NOT in a good position to break protocal! But.... If you want answers, ask Celestia. That's all I'm permited to say. Come on Dash, it's impourent we arrived to the base."
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Spitfire, be honest with me..... I am not gonna feel very comfertable about what's going on, am I?"
  • Spitfire: "..... Understatement of all of Equestia, Dash."
  • Spitfire, Rainbow Dash and the Wonderbolts flew off!
  • Spike: "..... Well, now I wished we checked to look out for surprise out of nowhere staillians with ambigious agendas!"

Wonderbolt Base.

  • Breathflame was stareing out to his window as Rainbow Dash was escourted in by Spitfire.
  • Breathflame: "..... There you are, Wonderbolt Dash...... You were not present at an urgent meeting."
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Gulp).... Sorry sir.... Still, kinda new to the Wonderbolt biz. I, was not given any kind of memo about a meeting."
  • Breathflame: "That was because it was too urgent for memos."
  • Rainbow Dash: ".... Uh..... Did it, had anything to do with that Acidburn guy? Was, he some kind of drop-out? Was he a delinquint? (Gasp)!? WAS HE A ROUGE?!"
  • Breathflame: ".... The answer's yes, and no. Acidburn was more then another Wonderbolt....... Had you noticed, that he bares certain simularities to Spitfire?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Oh yeah, Pinkie made a funny comment about him being a guy verson of your daughter, (Laughs), cause, we know that in no way is he related to-"
  • Breathflame: "Try to think, very hard about the names, Dash. Spitfire..... Breathflame....... Acidburn........ Fire...... Flame....... Burn...... What, do those three words have in commen.....?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "They, involve fire?"
  • Breathflame: "Think deeper then that, Rainbow."
  • Rainbow Dash:... Is he like a relative?
  • Spitfire: He's my brother!
  • Rainbow Dash: BROTHER?!? BUT YOUR MERCENTDISE SAID YOU WERE AN ONLY CHILD!!
  • Spitfire:.... We lied about that to aviod controversey. My family were still relitively new leaders that replaced Slaughterhouse.
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Ok, fair enough. I mean, the E.U.P. Guard is very controversey sensitive, so, in an extention, the Wonderbolts are too! So, what was Acidburn like? Was he assentually, some trouble-maker or drop-out?"
  • Spitfire: "Far from it. In fact, he was the oppisite. He was a Wonderbolt Legend."

Flashback.

  • (Spitfire): "Acid was the best of the best. He earned it and had it all. He was an athlet. He was a champion.... He..... He was everyone's hero..... (Softly) Even mine.... (Openly) He had fame. He had it good with endorsement deals.... And was quite a chick magnet."
  • (Rainbow Dash): "(Sarcasticly) Oh, is THAT why Lightning fell for him?"
  • (Spitfire): "Don't be sarcastic and snarky around superiors, Dash. Everything was going great for him and us.... Unitl.... It happened."
  • A Dragon-Porqupine hypred was seen roaring it's head off angerly as it was attacking the Accadamy!
  • (Spitfire): "A Drago-Pine attacked the accadamy while it was in it's musk during mating season. It attacked our accadamy because it was the perfect ground to build a nest to attract a would-be mate."
  • (Rainbow Dash): "I'm sorry to interupt, but this is why Icky complains about the kind of freaky stuff Equestia always has. It's gotten too much for even me."
  • (Spitfie): "We evacuated our newbies and reserves just in time, but our accadamy was in danger of being destroyed.... That is, till big bro charged in."
  • Acidburn in normal Wonderbolt attire charged it!
  • Acidburn was seen giving a huge smack down to the Drago-Pine
  • (Spitfire): "Acidburn pretty much defeated the Drago-Pine effertlessly.... However, one buck to the Drago-Pine's face, was what was gonna changed everything!"
  • Acidburn bucked the Drago-Pine so hard, it tripped backwords and fell onto it's back!
  • A LOUD BOOM WAS HEARD!?
  • The Drago-Pine was defeated.
  • Acidburn: "WHAAA-HOOO!? ALL RIGHT!? DID YA SEE THAT, SARGE!? I KICKED THAT DRAGO-PINE'S ASS?! I..... Sarge? Sarge?"
  • Acidburn looked around the area and saw what horrifived him!
  • A Sargent's hat was seen impaled by the Drago-Pine's quill.
  • Acidburn: "...... Sarge?! Sarge, please tell me this is another one of your famous jokes Sarge, cause I think this one isn't so funny?! SARGE!?"
  • Silence.
  • Acidburn started to cry....
  • (Spitfire): "A famed, aging, and beloved Drill Sargent lost his life because he pushed his daughter away from ground zero of where the Drago-Pine was gonna crash. He sacriviced himself for his daughter. A leader, a friend, a hero, and a father, was lost that day. Nopony blamed Acidburn for what happened, he didn't know about the sargent saving his daughter while her leg got impaled by a loose quill, it was nothing but bad circumstances and unfortunate timing. But Acidburn refused to forgive himself. He feared that everypony secretly hates him, so, in anger, he lashed out and attacked dad, trying to force him to admit that he hated him for what happened to the sargent.... But father was too forgiving..... Acidburn thought he was lying and desided that pain was gonna get him to be honest!"
  • Acidburn stomped onto Breathflame's wing as he screamed!
  • (Spitfire): "I charged in just in time to stop it from getting worse!"
  • Spitfire and Acidburn began fighting!
  • Acidburn: "SIS, I KNOW THIS IS A FAMILY MATTER, BUT THIS MATTER IS BETWEEN FATHER AND SON!?"
  • Spitfire: I'd hardly call breaking your own father's wing deserving for just the both of you?!
  • Acidburn: EVERYPONY HATES ME!!
  • Spitfire: For the last time, everypony does NOT blame you for that incident! You're just letting your own fears control you! You know that fear leads to hate, and then to anger, then to-
  • Acidburn: SHUT UP!! SHUT, THE F*** UP! YOUR WORDS MEAN NOTHING TO ME ANYMORE, SISTER!! NOW, I ADVISE THAT YOU LEAVE ME AND FATHER ALONE! THIS IS NONE OF YOUR CONCERN!
  • Spirfire: It IS my concern, this is assaulting your own father! That's not a pretty thing to look over. I am in the RIGHT for doing this! Now stand down, or I will have no choice but to arrest you and have you sent to court martial!
  • Acidburn: I will NEVER stop until I get what I want! And I wouldn't do such a thing if I were you, sister! I know JUST the way to make you and the rest of the Wonderbolts pay, just know that!
  • Spitfire: Is that a threat? Or worse, is that an attempted blackmail, soldier? That's more court-martial worthy and FAR more punishable than assaulting a commanding officer!
  • Acidburn: IT IS A WARNING, ZITFIRE! I WILL DO IT IF YOU DO NOT LEAVE ME ALONE! SO THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE! LEAVE!
  • Spitfire:...Fine! You leave me no choice! (They continue fighting as Spitfire immediately overwhelmed Acidburn and cuffed him) You are under arrest!
  • Acidburn: I'm warning you, Spitfire! If you do this, you WILL regret it!
  • Spitfire: Me? Regret doing the right thing? I'm sorry, but that's never going to happen! (On intercom) Security!
  • (Spitfire): I had him sent to the Wonderbolt Maximum Security Prison for his own good. I had thought he would never make good on his promise of blackmail because, as you might already know, nopony has EVER gotten out of that prison alive. It's the best prison in the Wonderbolt business. But somehow, he escaped.
  • (Rainbow Dash): WHAT?!? BUT I THOUGHT THAT PLACE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IMPREGNABLE!!!
  • (Spitfire): It baffled us, too! At first, we thought it was Acidburn's strategy and cunning, but even ponies with identical skills to HIS were stopped from escaping. Then we discovered that... He had help. (Bird-like footprints were seen at the crime scene)

Present

  • Rainbow Dash:... Wait... Bird-like footprints?
  • Breathflame: Yes. They looked similar to a griffin's talon-prints, but we also saw no paw-prints. Whatever attacked must've been a harpy, roc, or any bird-like creature. But when we showed the photos to Princess Celestia, she recognized them. She believed that it was the work of... Man-Vulture.
  • Rainbow Dash:... Man-who?
  • Spitfire: It's kind of a long story. He was a griffin who wanted to accelerate pony evolution to prepare for Nightmare Moon's return, but when he tested the serum on himself and became a mutant freak, he ran away from the public.
  • Rainbow Dash:... But... Why would he wanna free a rogue Wonderbolt who broke his own father's wing?
  • Spitfire: The Princess said that the serum may've had... Untold side-effects. It must've tainted his mind as well as his body. So now, we have reason to suspect that he's teamed up with some old ill-gotten enemies from the Pre-Equestria Windigo Ice Age period. The Gargoyles.
  • Rainbow Dash:...Wait, did you say gargoyles? As in EQUESTRIAN Gargoyles? Aren't they supposed to be extinct?
  • Breathflame:... It's... Kind of a long and classified story...

Later...

  • Rainbow Dash: WE SERIOUSLY GAVE THEM THAT MUCH CRAP?!? WOW, WHAT THE HELL KIND OF MONSTERS WERE WE BACK THEN?!?
  • Breathflame: "How was ANY race suppose to behave after losing a great majority of their gods?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Good point, but, other then that, WHY would ponies be driven to attack the Gargoyles like that, OTHER then taking the Judu Des clan seriosuly!?"
  • Spitfire: "Well, when your part of a race that lost a majority of their gods, suffering from decades of newfound hatred for eachother, and suffering from the coldness of the windigoes, creatures of the Gargoyles' caliber are pretty much the last thing those kind of people wanted to deal with. Also, it helped little that the anichent ponies felt it was RUDE of the Gargoyles to basicly tell them to leave the land after they work pain-stakenly hard to build up homes, and even ruder to make up tales about "Ice Ghost Horses", ya know, before we realised that Windigoes were real. And then there's the Gargoyles' good name falling victim of nasty rumors about them being baby eaters and harvesting organs for gore-feasts, that they liked to torture puppies and kittens and other animals, and the nastier ones like them being spawns of Tartarus. Their, appearences helped little in that reguard as it looked like they fit those rumors well."
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... (Facehooved) Ugh...... No freaking wonder those guys want to get even! Equestia CLEARLY once belonged to them! And we just BOOTED them out of their homes like we were running the place! Man, you guys are LUCKY that Gazelle isn't here or else she'll go political correctness on our asses!"
  • Spitfire: "I'm sure she would've understood that it was back when ponies were suffering from mass tainted purities, being abit medevil and stupid, and suffering from god loss and Windigo coldness."
  • Rainbow Dash: "She's a bipedal gazelle pop-star who supports the idea of fairness and equility among races from a planet that won't even bring themselves to DESTROY A BUNCH OF ZOMBIE CREATING FISH! She CLEARLY sounds like the type who would COMPLAIN LIKE HELL about this!? CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE ON WHAT THE UNIVERSES WOULD THINK OF US SHOULD THEY HEAR ABOUT THIS?!"
  • Spitfire: "I'm pretty sure the universeals are also guilty of making simular mistakes."
  • Rainbow Dash: "MAYBE SO, BUT THAT'S NEVER STOPPED PEOPLE FROM COMPLAINING ABOUT IT REGUARDLESS!? AND IT'LL BE WORSE FOR US BECAUSE WE'RE SUPPOSE TO BE THE PLANET OF CUTE HORSES!? THEY THINK WE'RE ABOVE THAT SHIT!?"
  • Spitfire: "Tecnecally, Pred Judu Des alone has already long put that rep into question, along with any other tainted pony."
  • Rainbow Dash: "BUT GARGOYLE NEAR-GENISIDE MIGHT BE DIFFERENT!?"
  • Spitfire: "Hey, people gotten over what that Peacock General did to a village of pandas and that uptopian paradise place Miss Kairi was from, didn't they?"
  • Rainbow Dash: That was only because it was COBRA who orchestrated all that mess to begin with. THIS is far different! Ponies made this genocide mistake all by themselves. And before you blame the Windigoes for it, THEY DIDN'T ASKED FOR PONIES TO DO THIS!? All they're guilty of is inadvertingly causing it and benifiting from the hate they caused, but otherwise, they had NO ENFLUENCE OR CONTROL OF THE WAR, Whatsoever! (Sighs) I can see why this was kept a secret!
  • Breathflame: And the only reason we're telling you this is because my son made DAMN good on his promise of blackmail. He has revealed the locations of ALL Wonderbolt HQs to Man-Vulture and the Gargoyles, and already four members of Team Delta have gone missing.
  • Rainbow Dash:... (Sighs) Okay, WHY didn't you have Acidburn mind-wiped of that information beforehand? Doing so would've prevented this problem and would've rendered him useless to the Gargoyles and Man-Vulture.
  • Spitfire: That's what I suggested, had it not been for the fact that the judge is one of the unfortunate ponies who goes into the crappy ethics about mind-wiping being a bad thing!
  • Breathflame: Honey, don't blame him for being like that. He has been mind-controlled in the courtroom over 7 times, so it makes sense why he would protest about such a thing.
  • Rainbow Dash: And I myself can't say I blame the guy. Remember when Discord and Mayhem mind-controlled me? That makes such a decision 100% justified.
  • Spitfire: THEN WHY THE HELL DID YOU ASK ABOUT MIND-WIPING, YOU GODDAMN HYPOCRITE?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: YIKES, ok, let me explain! Because that's an entirely different means of mind-control. What was inflicted on me was a personality-alteration, which was WAY worse than mind-wipe. Mind-wipe can sometimes be beneficial, but only as a precaution or when there's no choice. While I think the judge was a little bit preachy for deciding not to authorize the mind-wipe, I understand WHY he would do it, besides his own history of being mind-controlled.
  • Spitfire:... I guess that makes sense. But still, Mystery Dare has assentully risked Equestia's well-being because of magic efnics, understandable or not! This mess would've been EASILY prevented if the Judge just swallowed his pride and approved the messure and not expect us to just sit and hope Acidburn won't say jacksquat! When this is over, I am SO gonna complain about this guy to the judge council and ask them to cut out that magic efnics crap and that stuff about his own personal bad instences of it being misused!
  • Breathflame: Let's not blame Judge Mystery Dare for Acidburn revealing our base locations. Our top priority is to get the Wonderbolts prepared for another night attack.
  • Rainbow Dash: "Well that's kinda cowerdly they're attacking by night, barring the fact that they're clearly steriotypical gargoyles that turned into overgrown garden orniments or park statues by day. I mean, attacking their enemy while they're sleeping and unpreparped is BEYOND dishonorable."
  • Spitfire: "To be fair, we ponies were kinda guilty of the same shit of doing that to THEM while they're stuck as statues during the day, so fighting us honorably is no longer doable. Also, we may think it's cowordly, but to them, it's just an insulting label for what they think is litterally basic survivful. Trust me, had they been those "Modern Gargoyles" like the ones in the gargoyle communites the natives are corrupting right now, that can only be statues of their choosing or are assentally living statues, yeah, they would've been MORE then glad to just charge up by the hundreds and attack MORE then just one of the time. SO yeah. THANK CELESTIA THEY'RE TRADITIONAL GARGOYLES!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Tots! And it's not like Man-Vulture is planning to use the Wonderbolts he has to not only cause some kind of element of harmony sheild, but in a way turn those Traditional Gargoyles into Modern Gargoyles and leave them no longer limited to night where they can attack whenever they want and there would be little anyone can.... Do.... To.... Stop..... It....."
  • Silence.
  • Breathflame: "....... Then I'm afraid that means this attack on Team Delta was a one time attack."
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Wouldn't that be a good thing?"
  • Breathflame: "Think about it. Lack of evidence of bodies or blood, the delta base wasn't TOO ransacked, by tartarus, they didn't even degraded the building with anti-pony symbolisum akin to their more traditional attacks. The attack wasn't to kill or terrorise..... It was to collect samples. And as we speak, Man-Vulture is already proceeding to make his serum."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Then let's go to the Goyland Caves and kick their asses!"
  • Spitfire: "Yeeaaaah. Censoring an unpopular part of our history, has downsides....."
  • Rainbow Dash: "...... Let me guess..... Goyland Caves is NOT reckindised in any Equestian Map, is it? We're talking, "Taiklar was a myth" bad, right?"
  • Spitfire: "That on super-steriods."
  • Breathflame: "Afraid so. It would be impossable to find the location thanks to ansisterial shame and preference to keep it quiet."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Not helping is the fact that THEY NEVER BLOCKED OUT THE CAVES?! Luckly for you guys, the Cutie-Map is not like other maps and will find Goyland Caves no problem."
  • Spitfire: "Not that I question it's usefulness, but not only is it too overkillingly easy, it's un-nessersary. Cause, Man-Vulture and the Gargoyles inadvertingly gave us a chance to find it on our own."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Ya mean through Acidburn? I get what ya mean, but since he's CLEARLY a total tool, he'll never confess to us! And he's smart enough to not flat-out admit it to Lightning Dust until he earns her beyond die-hard loyalty and totally converts her to Team Gargoyles!"
  • Spitfire: "Yeah, but I saw that halogram their bug was producing. That clearly looks like he's showing signs of reconsidering. But Acidburn was always a die-hard professional, and he knows to keep personal feelings under control. However though, that clearly looked as if he does or has started to give legit feelings torwords Dusty. And it's likely that the Gargoyles will send some guys to keep eye on the two. That's why, we're gonna counter-sabotage their desires of ruining Lightning Dust by, ruining Acidburn's ability to stay professional by actselly making him love Lightning, and make the spying Gargoyles look incredabily bad and force them and Acidburn to go into conflict bad enough to make it look as if Acidburn's purity has returned to full form."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Yeah but, what if he's been place under a spell to prevent that?"
  • Breathflame: "The closest they got to that is Elfwork. And he's much skilled with magic. While a very powerful mage, his spells are not unfallable. The Spell will be removed by either cleansing it or if Elfwork is compromised in anyway. And since the Gargoyles know well enough to keep Elfwork close to the cave at all times unless battle calls, we have our hopes of simply undoing the spell.... And luckly, it showed some sign of going away on it's own thanks to Lightning's own kidness, ill-advised as it may, cause he never expected Lightning's loyalty to a "complete stranger". If we have Lightning express more acts of kindess to him, her love will cure him of this anti-purity cleanse spell and, well, the rest can take care of itself."
  • Rainbow Dash: "But that's the problem! She litterally just met him! If the Gargoyles or even Man-Vulture knew even something's alittle off, they'll quickly intervene and.... Do the unspeakable. They would ruin the budding romance by exposing Acidburn's supposedly true side!"
  • Spitfire: "Again, we make the spying Gargoyles' look bad enough that Acidburn won't let them get a word in edgewise. But as a procaution, we also have to make Lightning's love for him so strong, it won't matter what they say. Whether or not she'll think they're lying or simply won't give a giant fuck about the truth is debatable, it could go either way since, well, Lightning Dust is never an easy pony to read."
  • Rainbow Dash: Yeah, but...what about those simulation classes? I think she'll need to resume them.
  • Spitfire: We can worry about her studies later. It was nice of you to use that popular spell and let her experience our history, but right now, we must worry about Acidburn, because there's no way he's going to let her study in the simulations again.
  • Rainbow Dash:... How about... If the BOTH of them experienced the simulation?
  • Spitfire: Look, Rainbow, I can agree that that will work, but the whole point of Acidburn's seduction of her is to get her AWAY from studies so it will lead her to join their side.
  • Rainbow Dash: Yes, but just hear me out! What if we don't have to use the simulation we used before? Remember how I was taught about your history? What if we combined both methods into one? The simulations appear on the ground wherever they went. Acidburn won't get her out of it as they will appear wherever they go!
  • Breathflame:... And what does that accomplish in terms of Acidburn?
  • Rainbow Dash: Well, he won't be able to keep track of the mission until he inevitably gives in. Who knows? It might develop their relationship enough for us to reach our goal.
  • Spitfire:... And you're sure such a thing will work?
  • Rainbow Dash: It's worth a shot! I'll go get my friends ready. I'm off! (Flies away)

Chapter 3: The Lodgers' Counter-Sabotage/Man-Vulture's Mind-Wipe

Canterlot, Celestia's room.

  • Lord Shen: "GOOD GRIEF, WOMAN, ARE YOU SERIOUS?!"
  • Celestia: Yes. It appears that Acidburn was a rogue Wonderbolt who became rogue out of guilt, and had mysteriously escaped thanks to Man-Vulture. And what's worse, is that I fear that the Gargoyles that we ponies treated badly have returned to seek revenge.
  • Lord Shen:... Okay, so let me get this straight! We're dealing with a rogue Wonderbolt who went evil out of guilt and denial, escaped thanks to a mutated griffin who wanted to prepare for Nightmare Moon through genetic-engineering, and now both are working for a race of Gargoyles thought to be extinct yet were actually kicked off of their own land by a bunch of cruel ponies, and now they're going to plan something big that might need OUR attention?
  • Icky: Jesus, past ponies, what the s***!
  • Po: Well, to be fair, when you lose all hope after a chaotic war against the Draconequui and Alicorns, which ends with the Alicorns being completely destroyed, you tend to get a little bitter and cruel, even if it's to people who are trying to warn you of the consequences of their expansion.
  • Lord Shen: ARE YOU KIDDING, PANDA?!? WE WERE TOLD THAT PONIES WERE SO CRUEL, THEY LISTENED TO BARBARIANS, HAD INNOCENT GARGOYLES UNETHICALLY EXECUTED, AND DROVE SAID GARGOYLES TO A WAR WHICH ENDED WITH THEM GETTING BANISHED?!? I'M BEGINNING TO QUESTION THE PURITY OF THE PONIES HERE!
  • Celestia: Shen, PLEASE understand! The Alicorns' departure was still a very devastating blow to mortal ponies. Plus, it wasn't just the loss of the Alicorns, but it was also the chaos the Draconequui reaped. Especially Tyranny. At the end of the war, he went on a destruction spree that the Alicorn Gods had to stop by sacrificing themselves. I can't see how such an act would be life-scarring to many ponies.
  • Lord Shen: "I don't really see how that should flat-out EXCUSE robbing an entire race of their lands!?"
  • Shrek: "Look at it this way..... Your part of a race that recently lost their gods, you worked hard on the foundations you made after leaving your former country, and the coldness doesn't help on your attatude, does that REALLY sound like that you would want a bunch of scary looking Gargoyles coming down from perches and basicly tell you to amscray dispite all your hardwork and your troubles, and, keep in mind that this was BEFORE the Windigoes were discovered, all the while talking about ice horse ghosts?"
  • Lord Shen: "...... That, actselly makes the Gargoyles sound like rude liers."
  • Shrek: "EXACTLY! Now, as unfortunate their tragity is, it's not like it was entirely unprovoked. In all tecnecally, the ponies were provoked into hating them because the Gargoyles desided it was a smart idea to try telling them to leave while they're sufferin' god loss anxity. They were rattling their cages by being the last things they really want to see right now after losing the alicorns. I mean, if you were in their position, would you really trust the word of random and intimidating looking strangers telling you to pack your things and go elsewhere?"
  • Lord Shen: "Well no! I would take that as a terratorial challnage and an insult to my hard work establishing a home here! To me it would sound disrespectful and dishonest and make me think that the locals don't want me here!"
  • Icky: "There you go! No one's the true victim or the true instigater. They were BOTH being stupid."
  • Celestia: Exactly! But the Gargoyles had attacked Wonderbolt Team Delta's HQ and abducted four of their members just last night. Apparently, Acidburn told all the information on the secret bases to them.
  • Lord Shen:... And you couldn't have him mind-wiped because?
  • Celestia: Because the Wonderbolt Judge Mystery Dare, because of being mind-controlled 7 times, is one of the ponies who argue that mind-based spells are unethical.
  • Mushu: UNETHICAL?!? Are you kidding me?!? What's so wrong about a little memory-wipe?
  • Celestia:... Why don't you ask other ponies who are in mindwipe ethics? You should know as well as I that magic comes with consequences. The way magic is used commonly here, there can be untold consequences that come from even changing a grain of sand into a rock. The world is in equilibrium, and sometimes it can cause a slight bit of chaos. As for mind-spells, ponies argue that it can be used to manipulate free will, change identities, taint people, and even disrupt society. Sometimes, mindwipes can affect a person's future. Sometimes, even unpleasant memories can allow people to build a better future.
  • Crane: But what was so wrong about erasing sensitive information from a criminal's mind? The way you put it, it seems like the judge was not making sense with the decision NOT to erase the memories?
  • Celestia:... Well... Because one of those mind-controls were... A memory wipe.
  • Crane:... Ohhh... Now I get it.
  • Celestia: You see, the magic was used to eliminate the important memories of what fuels his guilty verdict. He was in a case where a pony used a mind-spell to name himself the winner of a competition when he was immediately caught cheating. Then he used the same spell on the judge. The parts he removed was the cheat, and the accusation. This lead to him declaring the law enforcement corrupt had it not been for authority members who were required to have knowledge in occlumency reminding him. THAT'S why Mystery Dare is a magic ethicist. He sees such an act as a form of manipulation as he could easily rethink his life. He had hoped that he would after so many years of imprisonment. But he was broken out before he had the chance to do so. So, by all accounts, Mystery Dare has ended up making a fatal mistake that could easily cost him his career over his bias.
  • Soothsayer:... That is actually a fair point. Being a being of purity, even Acidburn would have some standards. And the expression he showed with the decision of being with Lightning proves it. Though admitingly, his faith was clearly poorly placed.
  • Lord Shen: Okay, okay, we get it, the judge was just trying to be as ethical as he could. I mean, come on, we've had our fair share of magic ethicists in the form of our critics and even MSM from time to time. But this is clearly an exsample of why being ethical doesn't mean being smart in hind-sight, espeically concerning someone who KNOWS YOUR WEAKNESSES!? It would've been bloodly better for everyone if the judge swallowed his pride and allowed the mind-wipe to happen, and thus preventing this Acidburn from being a threat! But personal opinions aside, let's just not worry about that and instead focus on telling Lightning about Acidburn!
  • Celestia: I'm sorry, but we can't do that!
  • Boss Wolf: Why the hell not?
  • Celestia: She could come to an awful conclusion. Telling her the truth would shatter her. What we NEED to do is change Acidburn's mind, and make sure his allies don't expose the truth as punishment. Also, we Equestians take romance very seriously here. Breaking one is not considered very forgiveable.
  • Icky: "Let me guess, your friendship religen said so?"
  • Celestia: "More or less."
  • Spongebob: "Gees, I wonder how Twilight's gonna handle it."

Twilight's castle.

  • Twilight: "IS THAT WHY THIS IS HAPPENING!?"
  • Starlight: "So, let me get this straight: Angry Gargoyles and a mutanted Griffin genius have sent Acidburn, a former self-shaming Wonderbolt and the appearent brother of Spitfire to coherse Lightning Dust to NOT do her studies and get her to join them? I mean, in one hoof, it can tecnecally work since Lightning Dust, let's be honest here, is not the brightist star in the sky if ya catch my drift, but at the same time, I wouldn't call a pony a very relieable villain."
  • ???: "A-HEM?!"
  • Starlight looks annoyed as a collection of Brony Analists that dislike her: Jerry Preet and ToonCritic among them.
  • Starlight: "..... PRESENT, COMPANY, EXPLUDED?!"
  • The Analists leave.
  • Pinkie: "To be fair Starlight, that was a glass house case there. But you have a point."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Which is exactly why we're gonna use Acidburn against them."
  • Chow Mein: "And how are we gonna do that? Surely those Gargoyles will have their eyes on them like hawks and will swoop down the minute things go bat-guano wrong!"
  • Rainbow Dash: Relax. I considered a plan when I was discussing this with the Wonderbolts. I suggested that we have Lightning AND Acidburn do the studying, this time as a combination with both the simulation and how I was taught.
  • Twilight:... You mean... A simulation where the historical events take place anywhere they fly? Hmm... I guess Acidburn wouldn't be able to keep track, and we've already established that a lot of people can see the simulation. The Gargoyles can only attack at night, and I guess the only ones who can protect them from the Gargoyles is either us or the simulated war-fighters.
  • Fluttershy:... Are you sure that'll work, Rainbow Dash?
  • Rainbow Dash: Look, it's the best we can come up with. Lightning Dust will get her studies straight, Acidburn will start bonding and having second thoughts, the Gargoyles and Man-Vulture will be dealt with very easily, and we won't have to worry about being dirty separators.
  • Twilight:... Well... Unfortunately, I haven't learned the higher levels of magical simulation, so it's going to take me a little while to perfect that spell.
  • Chow Mein: Well, it better be quick! The day is not going to last forever, and we need to mae sure to make time count.
  • Spike: "But how is Twilight suppose to quickly learn about that kind of Simulation Spell?!"
  • Rarity: "..... I think I know an old monk who might help. He recently took up residence in a self-made tree house in Everfree. He's considered a demi-god of magic, and without even being an Alicorn. His name is Mystic Pool."
  • Rainbow Dash: "And since WHEN do you know about a pony NOT a canterlot regel or some hot-shot fastion celeberty or any of your famous clients?"
  • Rarity: "..... I'll be bluntly honest girls.... I have been seeing this particular elder staillian for some time now cause...... Well, I'm envious to Twilight's magic being stronger then me and Mystic has been teaching me on how to make my own magical engry reach a certain level so I won't endup looking like a magical weakling."
  • Applejack: "And how long have you been seeing him?"
  • Rarity: "Since the start of season 6."
  • Pinkie: "Well how come you never tried anything as great as Twilight's?"
  • Rarity: "What do you take me for? Another Trixie? I only needed a stronger mana power so I won't look weaker compaired to Twilight. I also have been more, subtle, about it. I had nothing to gain over-deminstraighting my magic like I need to. Though it has helped me out abit. Like when I contended with Zesty Gourmand. She originally wanted nothing to do with going back to The Tasty Treat, so.... I, may've had to magicly hypnotised her to wanting to go back. Thing is, the spell I used is only good until she eats something she doesn't like, which is a ludercrist drawback mind you, so that's why I couldn't've allowed Zesty be given an original Tasty Treat dish other then Zesty won't liking it."
  • Pinkie: "So, her getting hit in the face by that yummy food snapped her back?"
  • Rarity: "Yes, my plan to trick that self-rightious sow to approve a totally different restaurent backfired thanks to poor communication."
  • Twilight: "Rarity, I'm kinda disappointed at you for doing that to Miss Zesty Gourmand."
  • Rarity: "I know it was bourish, but that old miserable mare is too accustomed to canterlot tradition that she turned every restaurent into the exact same thing or left it to suffer finacel problems and eventall closing. Unethical or not, if she doesn't want to be reasonable, she won't be worked with reasonably."
  • Twilight: "And that's understandable, but you commited the act of malmitulating someone, and that could in throey run a risk to your standing in Canterlot."
  • Rarity: "Oh don't worry about that. Cause of the Tasty Treat's rise to popularity and even without Zesty's approveal, well.... Let's just say I hope she doesn't enjoy being the "Queen of Crezine" for long, cause it would be rather unfortunate when ponies deside to not care for a critic's opinion, espeically if they're not doing a very good job of it."
  • Rainbow Dash: "So what, nopony's listens to her anymore?"
  • Rarity: "Well.... That, and she's being challnaged into Canterlot court by many restaurent owners for robbing them of their originally for the sake of approval, AND she has began to have bad tidings with her superiors of the Critics Union of Equestia as far as I can tell, though there was never an offical statement on what they plan to do with her."
  • Pinkie: "Well that party-pooper deserved it! I'm glad that meanie old mule's getting due karma!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Wow, that is surprisingly NOT very Pinkie of you!"
  • Pinkie: "It takes alot, to actselly make me hate a person..... And that weird-taste loving old chrome did ALOT to actselly make me NOT wanna be her friend!? She didn't even TRIED to taste something new, she just huffed like a stiff and walked off! I don't even get her fastion sense, I mean, who just wears a jacket, trench-coat thing and NOT put your arms into it?!... I mean, like of sleves aside. (Sighs)..... I'm this close of actselly being happy for the day she would ever die! THAT'S, HOW BAD IT IS?!"
  • Applejack: "Yowza! That must be one miserable pony if even Pinkie Pie has nothing nice to say about 'em, I reckon."
  • Rarity: "But we're off track. I'll be glad to arrange something with Mystic. But be warned.... He's abit of a cromudgen to strangers."
  • Applejack: "Ya mean he's an ornery old hermit with property issues?"
  • Rarity: "That's just your way of putting it. He's, a stallian who prefers his privacy."
  • Chow Mein: Then we better head there and hope he's in a good mood! (They head out)

Everfree Forest

  • Fluttershy:... Oh, sweet Celestia. Do we REALLY have to go back in there?
  • Rarity: Relax, darling, I know a safe passageway there. As long as none of those monsters in there pop out, I'm sure we can handle it. (They head out and entered a swampy portion of the Everfree)...
  • Applejack: Yikes. This seems pretty dern ominous for a "safe passageway".
  • Rarity: It may seem that way, but Mystic says that this swamp hardly served properly as homes for beasts. Especially since he can scare off many of the creatures that used to live here, including those Cragadiles, or worse, those swamp grindylows that he chased down the river. They have been known to be very rude and murderous to anypony who ventured in and tried to drown anypony who got too close.
  • Fluttershy: (Shivers in fear).
  • Rarity: That obviously didn't help your uncertainty about this place. Easy, Fluttershy, they're all gone now.
  • Fluttershy: Question? Why does Mystic live near this area?
  • Rarity: Simple. He wants isolation AND protection. This area is infamous enough for him not to be disturbed. (They approached a hut) There it is! Mystic's Hut.
  • Twilight: It seems pretty nice.
  • Rarity: I may've given him a little makeover when I first got here.
  • Applejack: Another question, how did you find out about Mystic in the first place?
  • Rarity: He happened to venture into Ponyville prior to our Crystalling event. At first, ponies thought it was Zecora, but then another identified him as a new stranger that might've been 'worse'. He's not a zebra or another intelligent ungulate, but he said he had been taking trips to the land where Zecora was said to have come from. He even met Mare-Zan every once in a while after rescuing him from a Cragadile. Now come, let's go introduce ourselves. (They entered the hut)... (Clears throat) MYSTIC! It's me, Rarity! I've got friends who might need you! Hello?
  • ???: "(Echos) Ordenarly, I complain about having to contend with guests of those I do not know, NOR have invited, but this will be an exception."
  • Torches dramaticly turned on by themselves and reveiled that the hut is unrealisticly bigger inside then it is outside. It is also very unhut-like in interior design, looking more like a wizard's monistairy then a hut, filled to the brim with books, african relics and masks, skulls of every known creature of equestia, even some from beyond that, and even in the center, a magical pool with a reflection of the entire united universes.
  • Pinkie: "...... WOWIE KA-POWWIE, RARITY, YOU REALLY DID A NUMBER ON THIS GUY'S HUT!?"
  • Rarity: "Actselly, all I did was made the outside look nice in hut standerds. The rest of this is Mystic's doing. This, alone, speaks volumes of what he is capable of."
  • Fluttershy shivers around the creature skulls.
  • Twilight: "(Looks at Mystic's libary)..... I don't even think modern book publishers even make HALF of these anichent tomes anymore! I envy his ability to aquire these anichent books!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "If only he had something, SOME OF US, other then you would enjoy."
  • Pinkie gets very close to the Universe reflecting pool.
  • Pinkie: "Ohhhhh! This pool is pretty!"
  • Rarity: "PINKIE STOP! Mystic told me that this pool is very speical to him!"
  • Pinkie: "Would that be because of the fact you can see the united universes in it?"
  • ???: "More then just that, pink one."
  • A door at the end of the room opened abrubtly as a blinding white light engulfed the room as a figure walked forth.
  • The door closed as the light faded away, reveiling a bearded, aged, but somehow still walking upright and properly unicorn dressing like a powerful sage.
  • Applejack: "Mystic Pool, I assume?"
  • Mystic: "I actselly go by many names, but this one has become most common because of my discovery of the biggest secret of everfree never thought possable."
  • Pinkie: "Ya mean this coolio universe pool?"
  • Mystic: "Careful! That pool is both very speical, sacred, and impourent to the universes as a whole, if not just to Equestia in a big way!"
  • Applejack: "And what's suppose to be so dang speical other then it's speical effects?"
  • Mystic: "More then any one would ever realise. I studied long about the fabled and lost, Everpool of Gaia."
  • Twilight: "This..... This thing is..... The legendary Everpool of Gaia?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Wait, you mean, Gaia Everfree, The Alicorn Goddess of Natrol Selection? She's been AWOL since the Choas Wars! What does she have to do with that freaky swimming hole?"
  • Mystic: "Gaia was the only one who realised how speical Equestia was, and how shockingly impourent to all things magic into this universe, and beyond."
  • Applejack: "Wait, are you going to suggest that-"
  • Mystic: "Yes..... Equestia, is the ever needed shorce of all magic to the rest of the universes."
  • Rainbow Dash: "HOLD UP, HOLD UP! That would imply that magic never existed until Equestia showed up! I mean, Gods have magic, do they?"
  • Mystic: "The power of gods is different from the kind of magic mortals can process. When the Alicorns created this world, they unknowingly created a pool that has caused magic to become avaluable to mortal kind. They inadvertingly made Equestia the shorce of all magic, and even outside devinities never truely understood why mortals can actcess magic and just assumed it was part of their natrul progress. This pool is how magic can be actcessed in worlds outside of Equestia, even in worlds where magic is not plentiful, though it's rare. But those pool, if you bathed in it, it will make you the most powerful being in this universe, as you will have actcess to both light and dark magic of every known and unknown world of these universes."
  • Main 7: "Whoaaaaa."
  • Starlight: "This pool is incredable!"
  • Spike: "Good thing you didn't knew about this pool back when you were still bad, huh? Then we would've been in BIG trouble."
  • Starlight: "No need to bring that up."
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Ok, so, Equestia is like, the mother of all magic because of like, a cool looking swimming pool? I can get that. But, WHY is it in the Everfree Forest?"
  • Mystic: "Like the answer isn't obvious. Not only very little people would dare traverse this place, but it was because of Gaia Everfree herself. She knew this pool was a dishastor waiting to happen if any dangerious threat made itself known. So.... That is why Everfree, and many other dangerious places exist. For you see, this pool, which has the misfortune of being in this filthy swamp, isn't the only one of it's kind."

Flashback.

  • (Mystic): "In many places that became inhopsitiable or dangerious, there are at least 6 great Pools of Everfree in each part of the entire world of Equestia. The 5 are carefully hidden underground or an extremely uncharted part of the area they're in by Gaia's design. But Gaia was one who was, over-cautious. She created the many hostile beasts and monsters designed and created to guard the pools. She became dedicated to the point that she never attended the Choas Wars. She abandoned her alicorn bretheren for a cause more impourent to her then to commit to what is simply yet another conflict of the universes. She wanted to make sure that the pools do not end up being included in that, or any other fight. But the news of the loss of her fellow alicorns did broke her heart. As an act of self punishment, she cursed herself into a deep sleep and casted her horn to run on auto-magic, allowing her to create more and more creatures to keep the pools safe without her direct preasence. The downside is, without her direct enfluence, not many of the new creatures understood their purpose, and simply acted like wild animals. But it benifited the protection of the pools reguardless."

Flashback ends.

  • Applejack: ".... Well, if that's true, then what's this one doing not secludedly hidden?"
  • Mystic: "It's barial was disturbed, by those that wanted to absorb the pool's magical gifts, for themselves. Two Gargoyles, named Narbol, and Pyrogrowmong. Under the orders of the Gargoyle King, and the Griffin, Manreious."
  • Rainbow Dash: "AKA Man-Vulture."
  • Applejack: "But why are they bugging the pools?"
  • Mystic: "They found one of them by accsident in the Goyland caves. They were attempting to capture the Goyland Pool's guardian, A Giant Cancer."
  • Pinkie: "Yikes! A giant uncureable desise protects a magical pool?"
  • Mystic: "(Sighs).... I meant Cancer like the name of the Star Constilation of the crab! Like, you know, the Ursas?"
  • Pinkie: "Ohhhhhh."
  • Rarity: "Ohhh, I know this is going to lead to a "Rarity, get your sword" joke somewhere. Honestly, ever since that pirate adventure with that litteral giant crab in the comics, there was like alot of fanart and fanfics centered around me being a giant crab slayer for some bizare reason! Sometimes the Brony fandom is undutifully weird!"
  • Mystic: "This is why I came here. Prior to the day we have met Rarity, Manreious has been making the Gargoyles seek more of the Pools. From the darkest jungles,"

Flashback.

  • The Temple of Chicomoztoc was seen.
  • Another Pool was seen guarded by the Cipactli.
  • (Mystic): "The coldest unforgiving regions of the Frozen North."
  • Inside the cave around the path to Yak-Yakistan, is the cave that housed the Yeti-Babboon beast as it was seen sitting contently by another pool.
  • (Mystic): "The hottest desert of Saddle Arabia."
  • Deep within the Saddle Arabian sands lies Mongolian Death Worms hissing about around the pool.
  • (Mystics): "In the heart of the Badlands."
  • A great Badlands Golum carring a ghastly club rests around the pool in the center of the badlands.
  • (Mystic): "And as we now know, the ones in everfree,"
  • The formerly buried pool was guarded by the Hydra.
  • (Mystic): "And Goyland Caves."
  • A giant Star-Constailation Crab Beast simular in color like the Ursa creatures was seen guarding the pool jealiously.
  • (Mystic): "These creatures served as the main guardians out of the many others designed to deter adventures in the places at all, to protect the pools incase of the possability of one adventurer being too determined to be detered. However, thanks to the Pony-Gargoyle War..... Gaia's hopes of keeping these things obscured were compromised by the vengence hungry Gargoyles."
  • The Gargoyles are seen over-wealming the Cancer Crab and trapped it to the ground by chains.
  • (Mystic): "The beasts began to harvest the magic of the majustic Everfree Pool to try to rebuild what they had lost. But then Man-Vulture came and desided that it will be made to be given a greater use. It, and the many other pools, shall be used for a dark grand sceame. So, two of the strongest Gargoyles, have went out of their way to claim the othe pools. One by one."
  • Two Gargoyle Silluettes, one big and strong, another seemingly with it's hands on fire, were seen, beating the Cipactli, the Yeti-Boon, The Death Worms, and the Golum."
  • (Mystic): "The two captured the other guardians of the pool, and have them sent to be imprisoned into the Gargoyle donguins. The Hydra was the last of the creatures they chased. It's leading head was smart enough to lead them away from the pool while it was still unknown."
  • The Strong Gargoyle slams the Hydra down and tied their necks into a knot!
  • (Mystic): "But still ultamately captured....."

Flashback ends.

  • Mystic: "Thankfully, the other creatures kept the pool safe in event of returns, then I took over when I asserted myself as the the alpha of this land. I gave this pool something unsentient creatures could little offer."
  • Applejack: "Wait, Rainbow, didn't ya head to that Chicomozotc place in the new episode?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Well yeah! But.... I thought it only hold that ambulet we got from there."
  • Mystic: "The Ambulet was but one of many treasures it protected. The Temple was made by anichent Aztec Goblins who were dedicated to Gaia Everfree."
  • Twilight: "But why the pony symbolisum there?"
  • Mystic: "It was part of their tribute. They created hylogriflics dedicated to Pony culture instead of their own."
  • Pinkie: "I think I ran into that Yetbooni once. Though granted a future episode might give it a different name. He kinda tried to kill me."
  • Mystic: "The Yetbooni was only trying to scare you away from the pool's location. If he wanted you dead, he would've done more then just given you a free mane-cut."
  • Twilight: "Well, did the same implied to that Hydra that chased us?"
  • Mystic: "Indeed. The Hydra just wanted to keep the pool safe from potaintional misuse, so it only wanted to scare you away from it. After you gotten out of it's reach, it felt that it's job was done and mocked you on your failure for what it assumed that you were here for the pool."
  • Fluttershy: "Oh dear, I didn't mean to make that thing concerned, I was only releasing some frogs there that day."
  • Applejack: "But why would she create critters that want to kill and eat us?"
  • Mystic: "She is the Alicorn of Natrol Selection after all. She had a, darwin view of the world. And she was looking out for the pool's best interests because their power could easily be used to upset balence in the wrong hooves, or hands for that matter."
  • Pinkie: "Wow...... Is, that how you managed to pull this major renovation off?"
  • Mystic: "NO!? I would not dare tamper with the magic being shared to the universes for things like this! I earned my great skill in magic through time and patience. You see, magic is respondsable for more then just it's own devices. It's the reason why there's such a thing as other forms of great mortal potaintional. It is why in some worlds, where science became king, is because magic is respondsable for imagination, which lead to even the likes of futuristic uptopias, and even super-beings, though they're no longer true magic as they're more mortal imaginations fully realised. In other worlds, magic is respondsable for the birth of Chi and enlightenment, and sometimes, the incredable physical feets most mortal beings could not hope to dream.... Even when magic has no influence to a truely scientific or a world dominated by another shorce of power, those have happened, because of Equestia being the shorce of all things impourent, and the Gods themselves, never realised this."
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... Whoa..... Badass. HA! Can you imagine the Lougers' reactions when they discover that the reason why even like what half of what they are now are because of Equestia having magical pools!? Espeically Kolwalski! He'll be like when he was reacting to the rocks from that Groka place! Rememeber that episode?"
  • Pinkie: "(Laughs) YEAH! He was all like "It makes no seaaaa.... It makes no saaaa!"! (Laughs) And I can only dream of what Icky's gonna be like!?"
  • Rarity: "Most likely he'll do a couple minutes of ranting and then get bonked on the noggon for being rude."
  • Spike: "Wow, this got serious. It surely can't get more serious then this."
  • Mystic: "It does. Gaia's self-punished sleep will soon come to an end, and when it does, she will not like what the Gargoyles are doing, and will gain control of every creature of equestia of her creation, to destroy the Gargoyles for their reakless actions and for being parasites of Equestias' accsidental gift to all of the United Universes."
  • Chow Mein: "Yikes?! Would she be THAT cruel?!"
  • Mystic: "Again, Alicorn of Natrol Selection. What did you expect of her?"
  • Pinkie: Ooh, do these pools use quantum energy?
  • Mystic: Nopony really knows HOW they work. But they're the source of all magic in the UUniverses, and that's all there is to it.
  • Applejack:... That sounds like a pretty far-fetched concept when you think about it. All UUniversal magic is entirely dependent upon these here pools.
  • Mystic: That's what a lot of ponies said when they heard about this as well. Sure it sounds weird, far-fetched even, but it's true. But with the creatures currently disabled, we must keep these pools safe before Gaia finally awakes.
  • Rainbow Dash:... Well... I think we'll worry about that after we reveal what we came here for. Turns out, we're out to stop the Gargoyles from planning an invasion on ponykind, and we're hoping that an unlikely couple consisting of a Wonderbolt Student and a Rogue Wonderbolt working for the Gargoyles is our key to doing it.
  • Twilight: The problem is that doing it requires a high-level simulation spell. Rarity here suggests that you have such knowledge.
  • Mystic:... What KIND of simulation spell are we speaking?
  • Twilight: One which expands the locations the simulations appear to literally everywhere. It involves the student needing to learn to get into the Wonderbolt Reserves, and the Rogue is not going to allow her to get through unless we can have him get stuck in these simulations until he cracks and complies.
  • Mystic:...All this just to get a student to learn?
  • Twilight: Okay, to explain a bit more, this rogue is hoping to get her away from studies so she can turn to their side. If we can get him to comply with the simulations, we can get him to forsake the Gargoyles and Man-Vulture so he can inevitably assist us in stopping them for Lightning.
  • Mystic: Interesting theory.
  • Rarity: So we'll do whatever it takes if it means you'll help us.
  • Mystic: Well, you actually don't HAVE to do something for me, because you're technically already doing it. You're stopping one of those enemies that want to seek out the pools. So if it means they get removed and frees one of the burdens of protecting the pools, then I will gladly offer my services.
  • Spike: "By the way, you said this Gaia Everfree was gonna wake soon, how soon we're talking?"
  • Mystic: "Tomorrow night."
  • Applejack: "Well that's kinda inconvenent. I mean, she's gonna awake sometime tomorrow? I mean granted, we can get things done rather quickly, but still, that's a-too close for comfert kind of problem."
  • Mystic: "So is the Gargoyle problem."
  • Applejack: Eh, fair enough.
  • Mystic: Now then, allow me to get the spell book and we shall get started.
  • Pinkie: How about we have her jump into the pool? You said whoever bathes in it becomes the strongest-
  • Twilight: Uh, Pinkie, I think it's best if I just learned the spell. If this thing is the source of all magic in the UUniverses, then that's the LAST thing I wanna do. I prefer we do it the less-risky way.
  • Mystic: Wise decision, Princess. The pools are far too sacred to be used that way. (Takes out the book)...Fortunately, this book contains all the simulation spells that have been made in Star Swirl the Bearded's Era.
  • Twilight: Great! Anything that's Star-Swirl-related is a friend of mine! They're the EASIEST spells.
  • Mystic: "Which is kinda why Celestia has went out of her way to put those spells in a room dedicated to them and have guards guard them with their very lifes..... Ashame they're not exactly the best ever security in my professional opinion."
  • Twilight: "Wait..... The Guards clearly didn't know Starlight, how did she managed to get the time spell?"
  • Starlight: "Well....."

Flashback.

  • Starlight was seen changing herself into Twilight, wings and all.
  • Starlight as Twilight: "(In Twilight's voice): "Ohhh, look at me, I'm an adorkable little bookworm who defeated the great Starlight Glimmer twice!" Ok, tecnecally, she saved me from Fem Fatala that time, but it still felt like a loss! I have heard about how when Twilight tried to break into this place the Guard's acted too stupidly trusting.... Wait, I should test this first. They might've learned their lessons."

Later.

  • Flash Sentry: "Here you go, honey bear, one key to the Star-Shirl room filled with everything powerful and easy to understand from the old unicorn himself, including a time traveling scroll with a limited spell that can be easily modifived into something truely powerful."
  • Starlight/Twilight: "...... Wow...... Just...... Wow."
  • Flash Sentry: Just be sure to keep it away from evil hooves.
  • Starlight/Twilight: Relax, I'll be sure to make GREAT use of the scroll. (Chuckles and leaves)

Present

  • Twilight: (She was surprised as she had her mouth open)
  • Pinkie: ".... Wow..... No wonder bronies hated your boyfriend..... Well, other then Flash stealing you as their "Way-Fu". What's a "Way-Fu"?"
  • Rainbow Dash:... (Sighs) Once again, the Guards have proven to be a bunch of jokes. It's no wonder we have to do all the dirty work!
  • Mystic: Sweet Celestia, you'd think they'd be BETTER than that!
  • Rainbow Dash: Twilight, have you EVER considered talking to your brother about that?
  • Twilight: I did since Rainbow Dash was framed, but Shining Armor said that it's not his fault the Guard is like that. The Guards themselves are not at all perfect and they all have specific weaknesses. Ever since the last Captain of the Royal Guard was a little... Intense...

Cutaway

  • Last Captain Pony: STAND UP STRAIGHT! (Punches a soldier) STRAIGHTEN YOUR ARMOR! (Punches another soldier) STOP BEING SO TALL! (Punches a tall soldier) (Grabs another soldier) DID YOU SAY SOMETHING?!?
  • Pony Soldier: Oh, God, I'm definitely afraid of you!
  • Last Captain Pony: GOOD! (Punches him)

Present

  • Twilight:... Shining Armor's take in the position didn't boost morale like the last one did, despite all the roughness. When he was still Captain, the Guard was diligent, successful, and got punished severely for something as simple as leaving a post. But when Shining Armor, a less-extreme individual, took the spot, there was little discipline. As much as the last captain was described as horrible, his influence made the guards EXTREMELY competent.
  • Rainbow Dash:... So... You're saying that Shining Armor unintentionally sabotaged the Royal Guard's competence by being... Soft?
  • Rarity: "CALLED IT!"
  • Twilight: Well, the reason the former captain was kicked out in the first place was because of multiple complaints about being TOO rough. As rough the sacrifice was, it had to be done because if they didn't, the Guard would've lost a TON of it's members.
  • Rainbow Dash: And so they chose a pony that was a little TOO soft? Nothing against your bro, but a guy who cries at weddings and can't even handle his own kid, god or not, is the LAST guy I would choose to be encharged of anything!
  • Twilight: HEY, Shining Armor is a GREAT leader! He does some signs of discipline every now and again. Those guards that left their posts were indeed punished, but...
  • Rainbow Dash: But like before, they'll NEVER learn their lesson?
  • Applejack: Uh, sugar pie, I don't think it's a good idea to unknowingly insult Twilight's brother. As much of a softie he seems to be, he still does his durn best.
  • Starlight: "Still, I might advise you talk to your brother about guards being too quick to trust ANYTHING that looks like you! Villains might start getting the idea of doing that! Epsiecally if they take advantage of your boyfriend again."
  • Twilight: And I will have a chat with them BOTH! Besides, we'll try and fix that sometime later. Right now, we need to get started on learning the simulation spell.
  • Mystic: "Just be careful on what you pratice with. Sometimes some of those simulation spells tend to feel, too alive. I once managed to make a simulation of a war from a different plain of existence and I almost ended up becoming a casulty!"
  • Rarity: "Well we'll just take one that is powerful but harmless! We don't want to endanger Lightning and even Acidburn in a sense."
  • Applejack: "Does it tecnecally matter? I'm sure the Wonderbolt's founding history was a relitively safe exspearience."
  • Rainbow Dash: "With exception of over a dozen different events and situations like the Razor Feathers. Trust me, as with every and any police force, there's ALWAYS a time in their history where conflict and evil have to be halted. Can you even name a SINGLE world in the UUniverses with a police force that has NEVER experienced war or terrorism, or some crap like that?"
  • Mystic: She's actually right. I had learned a great deal of history about the Wonderbolts. Their battles is NOT that child-friendly. Justice is not supposed to be a game, you know.
  • Rainbow Dash: Yeah, exactly my point! The Wonderbolts DIDN'T get this famous by just being another defense force. They're famous for saving thousands of lives. They even sacrificed THEMSELVES from time to time.
  • Applejack: Okay, okay, ya' made your point!
  • Mystic: Well, so far, the best simulation spell for that is the Level 5 Omnipresent Simulator Spell. It's a simple spell even for an Artificial Alicorn.
  • Twilight: Great. (Takes the book and prepares to test it)...
  • Spike: "What Simulation are you gonna make Twi?"
  • Twilight's horn flashes as everything became the simulation of an entirely different event of a different world.
  • Spike: "...... Where are we?"
  • Rarity looks at a billboard.
  • Rarity: ""Top Dollar City's Dollar-Roma?" Twilight, did you made a simulation of that Top Dollar City place?"
  • Twilight: "Well, I created a simulation when the Lougers once first dealt with Moneyless Jones, a fanactical super-villain out to rid the world of "The roots of evil" that is money and in his eyes, make the worlds a better place cause he thinks money's the shorce of all of the world's modern problems."
  • Pinkie: "Well, tecnecally he's right. Only at least, it's most 50% of the worlds' problems, where the other ones were-"
  • Rainbow Dash: "No need to go Twilight on us, Pinkie."
  • Twilight: "Now, this event took place in 2014, so, some members may be absint and, alot of their humor MAY be alittle dated."
  • Starlight: "How dated?"
  • An eploudtion was heard.
  • The Ponies saw that it was from the bank, as a buck deer came out wearing black spandex with dollar signs being crossed over by "No" signs came out laughing as he was holding paper money being burned! The Ponies hid away for a closer look.
  • The Buck: "YES, YES YOU EVER ROOT OF ALL EVIL, BURN BACK TO HELL WHERE YOU CAME!? SOON I, MONEYLESS JONES, WILL CLEANSE THIS PLANET FROM GREED AND EVIL OF MONEY!? I'LL MAKE THE WORLDS, MONEYLESS AND FREE?! (LAUGHS MANIACLY?!)"
  • Rarity: "Ugh, and just when I thought the Lougers' super villains couldn't get more sillier!"
  • A Doe came in dressed like a sciencetist and started to clean Moneyless' Jones face with a napkin.
  • Doe: "Don't mind me, Dear, you had a smudge on you."
  • Moneyless Jones: "MOM!? YOUR EMBARRISING ME!?"
  • Rainbow Dash and Pinkie began to snicker at this!
  • Starlight: "(Unimpressed tone) He lives with his mom?"
  • Doe: "Well just because you desided to play super villain doesn't mean you can go around and be dirty."
  • Moneyless Jones: "MOM, Villains are SUPPOSE TO BE DIRTY!?"
  • Doe: "Tell that to Dr. Cleaniness, the super villain of cleaning."
  • Moneyless Jones: "He's different, mom!"
  • Doe: "I only want you to look nice to the public dear. They'll talk about on how your a clean buck."
  • ???: "I think they'd be more concerned about the act of terrorisum your son commited, lady!"
  • The Lougers (Back in 2014), came in!
  • Sandy: "And your guilty of adbetting a terrorist and shaming yourself to the Science Community, Dr. Doe."
  • Dr. Doe: "Oh look, Jonesy. Your friends arrived. Play nice now, I'm going to get the lemon cakes."
  • Dr. Doe walks off.
  • Starlight: "....... The female deer's hopelessly deludional, isn't she?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "So, Shell Louge Squad! You have came to witness the fall of the root of evil that is money?! Impressed by my masterpiece as I destroyed this bank's vault and destroyed the money!"
  • Icky: "Yeah, I take it your one of those kind of dudes that think socity's better off without money, right?"
  • Mr. Krabs: "You MONSTER?! WHAT HAS MONEY EVER DONE TO YOU?!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "Oh, money did jack-SQAUT to me! It's my mother who I am doing this for!? Her life is ruined because of money! She was gonna introduse the most awesomest invention ever!? A machine that cures every single physical and mental alment known to living things! BUT THE COMPANY REJECTED HER PLANS BECAUSE IT WAS "TOO EXPENDSIVE"!?"
  • Viper: "She doesn't seem too broken up by that."
  • Moneyless Jones: "That's because she became so clinicly depressed that she gone deludional and doesn't realise what she's doing anymore! Mega-Sci-Corp broke my mother with their EVIL MONEY?! And Now, I'M GOING TO DESTROY IT?! And best part is, mother approves!"
  • Icky: "That's because she thinks your playing, jackass! Hell, she doesn't even know what she's doing?!"
  • Dr. Doe was seen giving lemon cakes to the freaked out bankers!
  • Dr. Doe: "Lemon cakes?"
  • The Bankers stared confused.
  • Banker 1: "..... No, thank you ma'am?"
  • Dr. Doe: "I made them with love."
  • Moneyless Jones: "HEY, DON'T DRAG MY MOMMY INTO THIS?! (Turns on his jetpack and flew) NOW YOU SHALL FEEL THE WRATH OF MONEYLESS JONES, AND HIS GADGETS!?"
  • Banzai: "Yeah, curticy of Yo Mama!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "WHY YOU?!"
  • Moneyless Jones presses a button that turns his gloves into giant robotic boxing gloves!
  • Kolwalski: "OH DE LOLLY! THAT OUTFIT IS CAPABLE TO BECOME IT'S OWN WEAPON?! SCIENCETIFIC MAGNIFISENCE!?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "Oh, thanks. (Chuckles). Mom made it for me. I added the anti-dollar signs myself and- HEY, DON'T DISTRACT ME?!"
  • Moneyless Jones swoops down ready to attack the Lougers!
  • Skipper: DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODGE!!! (They dodged as B.O.B ended up squished, but because of his gelatinous composure, it doesn't harm him)
  • B.O.B: YOU KNOW, SKIPPY, YELLING 'DODGE' IS MORE DISTRACTING THAN HELPFUL!!
  • Iago: Yeesh, and I thought Mr. Krabs and my brother were unfortunate moneyphiles. Now there's a moneyphobe! I mean, wow!
  • Susan: Dude, you're wasting your time trying to rid the world of money! You do realize it exists for a reason.
  • Missing Link: Yeah, it's basically an evolved form of trading.
  • Moneyless Jones: That's not what I see it as! I see it as a form of limitations and ruining! I've already got bombs set to blow up the rest of the banks ALL ACROSS ACCORD, which I can now detonate using THIS remote! (Takes out a remote control) As soon as this button is pushed, the tyranny of money on this world will FINALLY come to an end!
  • Lord Shen: You're gonna murder everyone!
  • Moneyless Jones: NO! I'm not going to MURDER anyone! I am going to make a LOT of freedom to a LOT of people!
  • Spyro:... You mean... An ultimatum?!?
  • Moneyless Jones: I issue a VERY specific statement! Either they agree to dispose of the money, every coin, every dollar, EVERY MEASELY LITTLE DIME...Or I level their offices! If money is going to limit a lot of things necessary for life, then it doesn't deserve to exist at all! I MEAN THINK ABOUT WHAT MONEY DOES TO PEOPLE! I HAVE THE POWER TO END IT ALL! NO MORE PAYING FOR ALL THE THINGS NEEDED FOR OR AID SURVIVAL! NO MORE MORTGAGES AND LOANS TAKING AWAY SHELTER AND BELONGINGS THAT WE HOLD DEAR AND REQUIRE IN ORDER TO LIVE! NO MORE WORRIES ABOUT PEOPLE DYING FROM HOMELESSNESS AND STARVATION! NO MORE LOAN SHARKS DOING UNACCEPTABLE THINGS LIKE BEATINGS, DEATHS, AND WORSE! NO MORE TAXES THAT JUST TAKE AND TAKE AND TAKE! NO MORE PAYING FOR THE SERVICES NEEDED FOR CURING AND SAVING THE LIVES OF EVEN OUR OWN PETS! BANKS KEEP CLAIMING THAT THEY LOOK OUT FOR THE WELL-BEING OF THE GOVERNMENT, YET THEY DO NOTHING BUT HURT IT'S PEOPLE WITH THE CURRENCY SYSTEM! WE NEED SUSTENANCE FOR SURVIVAL! FOOD, WATER, POWER, TELEVISION, INTERNET, SHELTER, VEHICLES, EVERYTHING, ALL CONTROLLED BY BANKS AND BOUND BY PAYMENT AND BILLS, BILLS, BILLS, BILLS, BILLS, AND EVEN MORE BILLS! THINGS LIKE THAT SHOULD BE FREE BECAUSE WITHOUT THEM, WE CANNOT SURVIVE! YET BANKS AND THE GOVERNMENT MANIPULATE THESE THROUGH MONEY, AND USE THIS LAME EXCUSE THAT 'FAIR IS FAIR'! WELL, IT'S NOT FAIR TO US THAT OUR HOMES ARE TAKEN AWAY FROM US, AND UNLESS WE PAY FOR IT, WE CAN'T HAVE IT! THEY SAY THAT MONEY IS THE BIGGEST POWER IN THE UUNIVERSES, BUT IT IS ALSO THE GREATEST DANGER, BECAUSE TIME AFTER TIME, PEOPLE WHO HAVE GREAT LIVES AND GREAT BELONGINGS, JUST LOSE THEM AS IF THE BANK CAN TAKE WHATEVER IT WANTS FROM PEOPLE, AND HAVE THEM SUCK THEIR D****! Well, it's about DAMN time someone corrected this! Banks have proven what they REALLY are! THEY ARE SELFISH, MANIPULATIVE THIEVES WHO THINK THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT BECAUSE OF MONEY! SO IT'S TIME I ENDED ALL THE MORTGAGES! ALL THE BILLS! ALL THE DEBTS! ALL THE BUDGETS! ALL THE THINGS THAT SAY MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO AROUND, AS WELL AS CREATES GREED AND SUFFERING! I AM DOING THIS TO SAVE PEOPLE, TO GIVE THEM THE RIGHTS OF FOOD, SHELTER, AND UNLIMITED RESOURCES! AND I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THAT BECOMES A REALITY!
  • Cynder:... So... You're in this not just for yourself or your mother... But for those that have been victims of mortgages, debts, homelessness, and starvation?
  • Moneyless Jones: YES! HELL, EVEN MOST OF MY FRIENDS ARE HOMELESS AND HAVE BEEN WRONGED BY THE BANKS! I want to give them unlimited resources! I want them to live the lives they deserve WITHOUT limits! Money is a limit that HAS to be corrected!
  • Cynder:... You wanna save those people... You want to give them great lives and restore what they have lost. But in the end, all you're doing is threatening lives if you don't get your way! That doesn't make you a savior! It makes you a bully! Money exists because trade exists because it's how people get things they want the honest way! If you eventually DO accomplish this, then how are people going to get what they want? Through trading?
  • Moneyless Jones: I'll figure something out!
  • Sparx: FIGURE SOMETHING OUT?!? WHAT, DO YOU THINK LIFE IS THAT EASY?!? A life of just trading won't even be the same. What, are you saying that stealing is right?
  • Moneyless Jones: "Stealing" is but a label! In a world without money, we can just simply get the things we need without the establishment expecting much.
  • Sparx: "So you just want to make it that everything in the world is for free then? Ok, I guess that's better then a world of stealing or a regressed trading world, but still, your way of trying to atthive this is still not cool, bro."
  • Shenzi: Honey, you do know that this plan is not going to work out or benefit anyone. As much a fair point you make, you're starting to sound like a child whining for candy that is too expensive!
  • Icky: Yeah! And saying that everything should be free? You're talking like a communist!
  • Boss Wolf: Ickster, I don't think you know what that even means. It's a bit MORE complicated than that!
  • Skipper: "Yeah, and besides, even commies need money! This clown is more of a CAPIALISUM HATING MADMAN!?"
  • Icky: "Sorry, dull moment for me there. Spir of the moment."
  • Moneyless Jones: ENOUGH OF THIS! I'm not going to wait any longer. I'm going to broadcast my ultimatum soon, and if they don't comply, they'll be as dead as mud! And unless you all want me to do it right away, you won't interfere!... They'll never stop suffering unless I END the suffering! Mom, activate the broadcast!
  • Dr. Doe: "Activate the broadcast, what?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "(Sighs)..... Please?"
  • Dr. Doe: "Good boy."
  • Dr. Doe brought out a laptop and began typing in and hacking the entire systems of Top Dollar City as hover probes appear and began to flim Moneyless Jones as he appears everywhere on the screens of tvs and jumbotrons.
  • Moneyless Jones: "ATTENTION, SIMPLETONS OF THE PLANET ACCORD, AND ALL OF IT'S CITIES, TOP DOLLAR CITY INCLUDED!? I, AM MONEYLESS JONES?! THE LIBERATOR OF YOUR MONEY ENSLAVED LIVES!? AWHILE BACK, MONEY RUINED MY DEAR MOTHER'S LIFE BY MAKING THOSE CORPERATE MEGA-SCI CORP PUPPETS REJECT HER PROJECT THAT COULD'VE EVEN AIDED IN STOPPING CANCER!? MONEY HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT AN ENDLESS SHORCE OF SUFFERING AND HEARTACHE?! FROM CAUSING PEOPLE TO BE HOMELESS, STRAVE, OR EVEN TURN PEOPLE INTO IT'S PUPPETS, MONEY IS AN EVIL ROOT TO ALL EVIL THAT NEEDS TO BE DESTROYED?! I HAVE SET BOMBS TO BLOW UP EVERY BANKVAULT IN THE ENTIRE PLANET, DESIGNED TO DESTROY MONEY FOR GOOD, WITH SOME RISK TO ANY OF MONEY'S PUPPETS?! But..... I'm a reasonable Buck. I'm willing to be considerate to leave the bombs COMPLETELY alone, and not make more of what became of the Dollaron Bank as you assumingly noticed. My demands are simple. I want the goverment of Accord to bring an end to money for good! That means I want every single Mint shut down and to discontinue ANY production! Then, I want every single dollar and all kinds of coins to be all collected to a pile, and DESTROYED BY THE VERY HELLISH FIRE IT SPAWNS FROM! I, want to free us and lead us into a utopia without money! To free us from it's hardship and pain, AND IT'S CORRUPTION!? Our socities will be MUCH better off without money! And for the sake of the banks NOT yet exsampled by my resolve, I advised that it is taken seriously!? Your goverment has 9 hours to comply!"
  • Patrick's voice: "They can do it in 8!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "7!"
  • Patrick's voice: "6!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "5!"
  • Patrick's voice: "4!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "3!"
  • SponegBob/Mr. Krabs: "PATRICK?!"
  • Sounds of fighting was heard..
  • Moneyless Jones: "..... 3 hours it is then."
  • Patrick: (Mr. Krabs strangles him)...TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
  • SpongeBob: Patrick, shush!
  • Moneyless Jones: "YOU HAVE UNTIL THEN TO MAKE YOUR CHOICE!? This is Jonesy, signing off, BITCHES?!"
  • Dr. Doe's voice: "JONESY!? WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT CALLING PEOPLE THAT!?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "DARN IT MOM, I'M A GROWN UP!?"
  • Dr. Doe's voice: "That's no reason to talk like a sailor LIVE IN FRONT OF AN ENTIRE POPULATION OF CHILDREN, YOUNG MAN!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "Ugh, great. Now my dramatic flare is ruined...... Destroy all money yourselfs or I will! Jonesy out!"
  • The screens returned to normal!
  • Moneyless Jones: "Ohhh yeah! I scored epicly baby! I am gonna get rid of money! Utopian Money free world, here come's Jones!"
  • Boss Wolf: "Spoiler alert pal, the goverment is not gonna have a nice reaction to your threat!"
  • Icky: "ESPEICALLY since this is a money-centered world! They're gonna go after you with extreme predjudice, mack!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "Pfft! I looked up Accord and discovered that they had the worse millaterry in the universe!?"
  • Lord Shen: "What crock of nonsense told you that!?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "Ma, give them the book!?"
  • Dr. Doe gave the Lougers a book.
  • Dr. Doe: "Here you go."
  • Lord Shen: "Thank you very much, madam. (Takes the book and proceeds to read for 5 seconds....)...... Young Deer, how long have you processed this book?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "I had it since I was a child. Why?"
  • Lord Shen: "Tell me..... What spefific year, did you and your mother acquire this book?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "2004, why?"
  • Lord Shen: "...... Lad....... You do realise that this 2004 edition of "The Guide to the Universes" is most likely LONG out of date with what is going on with the universes now?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "What do you mean!?"
  • Iago: "Buddy, Accord upgraded their millaterry with Futurasain tec in 2008 and gotten a better millaterry budget when it made an allience with Businecaden a year prior! It's millaterry is completely badass now!"
  • Moneyless Jones looks surprised.
  • Dr. Doe: "Now, see hon, I told you we should've gotten an updated guide, but you didn't wanna play "Money's game"."
  • Moneyless Jones kept from stressing.
  • Moneyless Jones: "..... Ok, no worries. I did had an emergeny plan on the formerly off-chance that a guide from 2004 MAY be somehow off."
  • Icky: "AND IT IS!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "Mom! Activate, DESTRUCTICUS!?"
  • Dr. Doe: "......"
  • Moneyless Jones: "..... Ugh..... Please?"
  • Dr. Doe: "Better."
  • Dr. Doe taps the laptop again as loud stomps are heard.
  • Eventally, a bank wall was destroyed by a huge, giantic, and imposing robotic titan with every weapon imaginable.
  • Moneyless Jones: "BEHOLD!? A LOST RELIC FROM THE SUPERIOR PLANET?! I GIVE YOU, DESTRUCTICUS?! AN INDESTRUCTABLE SUPER WEAPON MADE AMMUNED TO EVERY WEAPON AND POWER IMAGINABLE!? EVEN THE POWERS OF A GUN CAN'T DESTROY IT?! DESTRUCTICUS WILL PROTECT ME FROM THE ACCORDAN MILLATERRY!?"
  • Icky: "BAH! I'm imagining accordians with millaterry skills! Ya know, those, germany-polish instruments?! Ya know, like, (Walks funny as accordian sounds are heard) Hup 2, hup 2, hup 2, hup 2, (Stops walking and laughs uncontrolably)! Aw man! That just made my day."
  • Cynder: "How do you even know that thing really is indestructable?!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "Oh, that is a good question.... Luckly, I see a nice group of misfited guinni pigs right here?!"
  • An Actual Group of Misfited Guinni Pigs screamed at this!
  • Leader Guinni Pig: "PLEASE?! DON'T SIC THAT MONSTROSITY ON US!?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "What the, no! I was talking about those misfit clowns!?"
  • Misfit clowns are seen!
  • Leader Clown: "Whoa whoa, buddy, no need to hurt the clowns!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "What the, NO!? I MEANT THOSE FREAKS!?"
  • A mishapen family was seen as they crouched in terror!
  • Husband Mishapen being: "Pleastthhhhhhhhhhe don't hurt tusssssssssssssssss!"
  • Moneyless Jones: "NO YOU DINKUSES?! I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE SHELL LOUGE SQUAD!?"
  • Dr. Doe: "Jonesy, temper."
  • Moneyless Jones: "(SIghs)..... Yes mom..... Destructicus?!"
  • Destructicus: "Yes, master?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "DESTROY THE SHELL LOUGE SQUAD?!"
  • Destructicus: "Kill mode, (Darkly) ACTIVATED!?" (They ended up battling the machine as they threw all that they could at the machine, but it was resistant to all of them, and Merlin tried to use magic, but Destructicus detected it and snapped the wand)
  • Merlin: AW, COME ON!!! HOW MANY TIMES DOES THAT HAVE TO HAPPEN!
  • Starlight: "Wait, doesn't he have Magilo now?"
  • Twilight: "Remember, this took place in 2014. Kinda WAY before Merlin took that trip to the Alternate Universes."
  • Moneyless Jones: The Superiors who built it programmed it to see everything! Any cheating you try to commit will be disabled before it even happens. You misfits are FINISHED! (Destructicus continued to attack as the Lodgers were struggling to take it down)...(Cackles) Soon, money will be purged forever! (As the Mane Seven watched) And banks will no longer be bullies who take and bribe! And there's nothing ANY of you can do about it!
  • Rainbow Dash: (They see the Lodgers were nearly finished until Rainbow Dash couldn't take it anymore) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! (Darts through the Destructicus like it was thin air, causing the Lodgers and Jones to be surprised as Destructicus plops to the ground and explodes)...
  • Alex:... RAINBOW DASH, THAT WAS INCREDIBLE!!!
  • Moneyless Jones: WHERE THE F*** DID SHE COME FROM?!?
  • Dr. Doe: Jonesy, language!
  • Moneyless Jones: DROP IT, MOM!
  • Dr. Doe: "JONESY!?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "..... Sorry mom."
  • Dr. Doe: "Now I know you were upset about your toy, but don't take it out on me, young buck!"
  • Twilight:... They can see us?
  • Icky: Hey, Twi, we all know this is just a simulation! We can see you perfectly! (The ponies were confused, all except Pinkie)
  • Pinkie: Wow! Icky can break the fourth wall even as a simulation!
  • Moneyless Jones: NO!!! DESTRUCTICUS!!! MY BODYGUARD!!! YOU DIRTY MULES!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: How bout you say hello to my hooves, as they crack your head open like a f****** WATERMELON!
  • Spike: WHOA, RAINBOW!!! GETTING A LITTLE EXTREME, AREN'T YOU?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: It's a simulaton! So what?
  • Moneyless Jones: If I were you, I wouldn't lay a hand or hoof on me! May I remind you I still have this remote?
  • Pinkie: Silly-willy, this is a simulation! You know the Lodgers already won over you, so you push that button, it won't make a difference!
  • Moneyless Jones: OH, YEAH?!? (Presses the button, and explosions were heard)... HAH! VICTORY IS MINE! YEEE-HE-HE-HE-HEES!! MONEY IS DEAD!!! HOMELESSNESS IS DEAD! NO MORE MORTGAGES, NO MORE BUDGETS, NO MORE BILLS!!! (It suddenly rains money as Mr. Krabs went on a greed spree and ran around trying to collect some while Jones went on a dollar-ripping spree) YEEEEEAAAAAHHHHH!!! YOU WERE TOO SLOW, MORONS!!! FROM NOW ON, THIS WORLD IS GOING TO FOLLOW MY RULES! (As he monologues, the Lodgers and ponies nodded) I WILL CREATE A WORLD WHERE MONEY WILL NEVER RUIN LIVES! MONEY WILL FOREVER BE- (The simulation ends and the ponies were back into Mystic's Hut)
  • Rainbow Dash:... Pfft, what a loser!
  • Mystic: So how'd it go?
  • Starlight: "Rainbow Dash interupted the simulation by saving the simulated lougers from a SIMULATED ROBOT?!"
  • Mystic: "You have to understand that she was protecting them. And worry not. Simulations have no real power to change history. Otherwise, they would've been ALOT of rules made on them."
  • Starlight: "True, but, I never got to know what really happened aside of what I did see. I didn't get to see how it ended."
  • Spike: "Ah, don't worry, it was gonna be a typical louger victory anyway, nothing that speical. Here's how it originally went."

Flashback.

  • Destructicus had the Lougers in a corner.
  • Moneyless Jones laughed maniacly!
  • Moneyless Jones: "HOW CAN YOU MISFITS HOPE TO DEFEAT AN INDESTRUCTABLE ROBOT!?"
  • Dr. Doe: "Well, they could just go for the off-button on it's back."
  • Such button was seen, though tiny and well protected.
  • Moneyless Jones: "MOM?! DON'T TELL THE LOUGERS THAT!?"
  • Dr. Doe: "Oh dear, that was suppose to be a secret, was it?"
  • Moneyless Jones: "DESTRUCTICUS, DO NOT LET THE MISFITS TOUCH THE OFF BUTTON!?"
  • Thundra: Too late! (Summons lightning which fries the protection and pushes the button, shutting it down, and frying the button so it won't be turned on again)
  • Moneyless Jones:... MOM, WHAT THE HELL?!? THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!!
  • Dr. Doe: Now, now, honey, is that any way to talk to your mother?
  • Moneyless Jones: YOU DISCLOSED SENSIIVE INFORMATION!!! HOW DOES THAT CALL FOR RESPECT?!?
  • Dr. Doe: Look, I'm sorry! Now just-
  • Moneyless Jones: YOU'RE NOT SORRY! YOU KNEW THAT BUTTON WAS THE ONLY THING THAT COULD DEFEAT THE ROBOT, AND YOU GAVE IT AWAY!!! WHAT KIND OF SUPPORTIVE MOTHER DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?!? NOW WE HAVE NOTHING TO DEFEND US!!
  • Dr. Doe: Now you mind your mother, young man!
  • Moneyless Jones: FOR THE LAST TIME, I AM A DAMN ADULT! YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO ANYMORE!! I'LL CUSS WHENEVER I WANT, I'LL DEMEAN YOU WHENEVER I WANT, AND I DO WHAT I WANT! YOU DISCLOSED THE OFF BUTTON, AND I'M NOT ALLOWED TO SCOLD YOU FOR THAT?!? F*** YOU!! (The Lodgers oohed at that)
  • Dr. Doe:... I... I was only trying to help.
  • Moneyless Jones: HELP?!? I THINK YOU'VE HELPED QUITE ENOUGH TODAY!!! (Police sirens were heard)...
  • Dr. Doe:... Well, if that's how you're going to talk to me after all I've done, then I'm gonna have to ground you for life!
  • Moneyless Jones: (Laughs) Stop being nonsensical and just get us out of here!
  • Dr. Doe: Why should I after all this?
  • Moneyless Jones: BECAUSE THIS IS ALL FOR YOU! I AM PURGING MONEY JUST FOR YOU! AND DON'T YOU DARE LET THIS BE THE THANKS I GET! YOU WILL REGRET HAVING ME ARRESTED, THIS I SWEAR!!
  • Icky: Dude, you cussed at your own mother. That's usually spank or ground-worthy. She's done working for you. Even if she IS delusional, she still knows when to draw the line!
  • Moneyless Jones:... ALRIGHT, THAT DOES IT! ALL THE BANKS DIE! (Prepares to press the button)
  • Everyone: NOOOOOOOOO!!! (He presses it, but nothing happens)... What the hell? (Presses the button multiple times)... WHY ISN'T THERE EXPLOSIONS?!? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS- (He sees a switch near the remote)... THE SAFETY WAS ON?!? WHAT THE FU- (The authorities held him at gunpoint)
  • Soldier #1: MONEYLESS JONES, DROP THE REMOTE!
  • Moneyless Jones:... Mother, help me out here!
  • Dr. Doe: After how you treated me? You think I'm gonna help you?
  • Moneyless Jones: YES!!!
  • Dr. Doe:... He's all yours, boys! Give him a big spanking he won't forget!
  • Moneyless Jones: DON'T YOU DARE LEAVE ME HERE, YOU BITCH!!! (The guns went on his head as he dropped the remote)...(Cries like a weenie)... GO AHEAD! YOU LODGERS ARE GOING TO LET PEOPLE GET HOMELESS BY SUPPORTING MONEY!!! BANKS ARE CORRUPT!!! THEY'LL DRIVE PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR HOMES BECAUSE OF YOU!
  • Icky: Look, pal, as much as you think money was something created by Chernabog to in turn create greed and suffering, there ARE good things that money can give us. We use money to undo things that those 'corrupt' banks wreak on them. If you think that banks are evil because of just doing their jobs, then you are just as brain-dead as your mother, no intentional offence to her by the way. You wanna know how we undo homelessness? We donate! We give money to those in need! Yes, it's a long progress, but people all over the world are doing it simultaneously. Homeless people can earn money they need to survive in a pinch. Hell, some people LIVE off of homelessness. Not all good people we know have homes, and don't NEED them to have a prosperous life. As much as I hate this world for it's moderately-bad economy and how it cost me a chance to pay a loan, I support this world because it DEFINITELY has a heart. While you mean well with your actions, your actions are STILL unforgivable. You CAN'T blame banks for taking away homes because they are doing their jobs. You may see it as unfair, but you need to learn to just deal with it! Life isn't fair, anyway! You want to help the homeless? Donate! Give away anything you can! We PROVIDE for the homeless. We don't FORCE the issue on the banks who drove them to homelessness, and we sure as hell don't point a gun to their heads and say 'accept it or die'! You're HARMING people to help people! And THAT'S why we had to do this! I'm sure a few years in prison will teach you a lesson.
  • Moneyless Jones:... You're just like all the rest! NOTHING is going to be free! NOBODY will wanna have everything for free because money is JUST TOO MUCH OF THE NORM!!!! I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN PROVE WE CAN LIVE WITHOUT MONEY! YOU ARE MAKING A BIG MISTAKE LEAVING ME ARRESTED!
  • Tigress: We have nothing else to say. You've committed a crime, and you must pay the price.
  • Moneyless Jones: I PAY NO PRICE!!!
  • Cynder: I'm afraid that's your problem! Money makes the world go round, and I'm afraid there's nothing that can be done about that. NOT EVEN TRYING TO BLOW UP BANKS!
  • Moneyless Jones: (They took him away as he was crying like a weenie)
  • Dr. Doe looks as if she has quickly rejected her desidion....
  • Dr. Doe: "..... My baby......"
  • Icky: "Lady, I know it's hard abandoning flesh and blood like that, but it's the only way the guy's gonna learn to not take you for granted."
  • Shifu: "..... Miss Doe, I promise you both you and your son will be given the help you both need. You most of all."

Present

  • Spike: "So eventally Dr. Doe was evalulated in the Piggy Bank Asylum and is on her way of being cured of her illness while Jones has been place in Prison 42 cause he was alittle too extreme for normal super-villain jail. And thanks to Sooth-Sayer and a less deludional Dr. Doe in due time apologiesing what she had to do and explaining to Jones that she should've never allowed her troubles to cause him to be like this, followed by a very emotional scene, Jones is on the road of letting go his nasty feelings for money..... He does have to be kept away from Kung Pow though, the guy being Prison 42's residental prison bully, who basicly targeted him for being a momma's boy."
  • Starlight: "Oh my. Well, I'm glad those two are on their way to recovery."
  • Spike: "And in case anyone's curious about the Destructicus robot, don't worry. They made sure the Superiors took better care of their old weaponry. Algor promised it'll be sent to Nike to never see the light of day again."
  • Mystic: Either way, I can tell you all are ready to help me get rid of those Gargoyles before they can get to this pool.
  • Twilight: Well, while we're stopping them for our own reasons, it'll be fine if it helps you out.
  • Rarity: We can't thank you enough, Mystic.
  • Mystic: Anything. Now, go on. You're wasting time.
  • Spike: (They all head out)

Meanwhile...

  • A local park was seen as Lightning Dust and Acidburn were strolling.
  • Lightning: "This park is beautiful."
  • Acidburn: "My mom used to take me to this park."
  • Lightning:... Nice. This is a very beautiful place. The lush green fields, the crystal clear waters, the wind blowing in our faces.
  • Acidburn: Yeah. It's just as good as it was before. I used to like the giant jungle gym with crawling tubes and slides, and the driving cockpits, the bridges, the spinning tic-tac-toe-like things which usually taught us about animals and mythical creatures, and many others. Unfortunately, not only did growing up leave me too big for playing in them anymore, but it was torn down because it got wore out and nearly collapsed. I've heard they're planning to rebuild it, but they've never began progress on that plan for YEARS! Hoped that a future family of mine would come to enjoy it.
  • Lightning:... How great would it have been to play in that thing? It sounds like those play-tube thingies in Yum-Yum's Goodie Playhouse. My old friend Daisy said she went there when she was still a filly. I remember being at another one, too. That was just about one of the many things that made us bond so closely. But... I guess YOU'D know what it was like.
  • Acidburn: Thanks to the jungle gym they used to have here, you bet your flank I do!...
  • Lightning:... You know... If they ever DO consider building a new jungle gym here... Maybe we'd invite some fillies over to come play.
  • Acidburn:... What fillies? (Lightning blushed, and soon he did, too, and the two kissed, and the Mane Seven appeared in a bush)
  • Spike:... Well, asking them is out of the question! But how can you be sure that Lightning will accept this, and not accuse us of doing this without her permission?
  • Twilight: I'm a bit iffy on this plan, but she's dating a pony whose deceiving her. We have to do this not just for her, but for Equestria.
  • Starlight: Well, let's hope this spell works. When should we begin?
  • Pinkie: Well, the two are currently lip-locked, so they'll never see it coming.
  • Rainbow Dash: Eh, close enough! Let's do it!
  • Twilight: (Casts the spell, and the whole setting changes from a park to a battlefield similar in tone to the King Sombra-conquered alternate reality, and an explosion knocked them off their hooves)
  • Acidburn: CELESTIA'S NON-EXISTENT BALLS!!!!
  • Lightning: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!? (They noticed the changed surroundings)... What?... What the hell is this?
  • Acidburn:... ("Son of a bitch! It's her friends doing the simulations!") Uh, I have NO idea! It's probably your friends doing a simulation spell.
  • Lightning:... TWILIGHT! WHERE ARE YOU?!?... (They see that they were gone, even away from the bush)... TWILIGHT?!? THIS WAS VERY RUDE OF YOU TO INTERRUPT MY PRIVATE TIME WITH ACIDBURN!! I DON'T WANNA LEARN ABOUT THE WONDERBOLTS ANYMORE! I'M ALREADY HAPPY!... TWILIGHT!... DON'T YOU F****** IGNORE ME!...
  • Acidburn:... They must've ran off. We'd better find them, and get out of THIS place! (They fly-jumped across hills until they reached another area)... Whew! At least nothing bad happened here, that's for- WHAAAAAAAAAA?!? (Another battle was seen)... What is this?
  • Lightning:... But... But this place seems to be unharmed! Hmm, let's head to the Beauty Meadows. They seem pretty harmless.

Beauty Meadows

  • Acidburn: (They arrived)... OH, YOU HAVE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!! (The battles were still seen)... THEY'RE EVERYWHERE!! EVERYWHEEEEEEERE!!!
  • Lightning Dust: (Sighs) Jesus, Twilight, this is REALLY pushing it!
  • Acidburn: Wait... Isn't this the exact same battle as the last two times?
  • Lightning Dust:... You're right! (Wonderbolts were seen flying through the sky being chased by ponies with fire-colored suits as a very dashing dark-blue Wonderbolt pony with orange, yellow, and green hair, and a high-styled Wonderbolt suit were seen flying through the sky)
  • Wonderbolt Leader: THE FIREMANE GROUP IS STEPPING UP THEIR GAME! WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO DO SO AS WELL! TROOPS, KULBIT MANEUVER! (The Wonderbolts spun upward and got behind their pursuers and tackled them from behind as they crashed)
  • Lightning Dust:... Wait... Is that... Commander Phased Dazer? The very third leader of the Wonerbolts?
  • (Oak Golden): That's right. And this is the last battle during the Firemane Wars he fought in.
  • (Lightning):... Oak? What're you doing here?
  • (Oak Golden): Look, I know you're upset that Twilight did this, but she kinda figured that... Well... Maybe you AND Acidburn could experience the lessons.
  • Lightning:... ("Really?... Well... I guess I hadn't thought of that.")
  • (Oak Golden): "Well thinking clearly isn't always your strongest suit. No offenice. Keep in mind that the Princess and co are just gonna keep making this battle appear in all areas of the park, so, you best better humor them."
  • Lightning Dust: "(Sighs)......."
  • Acidburn: "Aw great, this looks like the simulation's all over the park! Let's get out of here."
  • Lightning Dust: "Actselly, Acidburn, it, doesn't look like they'll leave us alone, so.... Let's at least, humor them."
  • Acidburn: "But I thought you said you were done with the Wonderbolts."
  • Lightning Dust: "I am, I am, but, I figured that we use their attempt as a means to make our own date even more exciting. I mean, who wouldn't want to be able to take on Firemane?"
  • Acidburn thinks: "Well, I did always dreamed to be the one who had the chance to take down something close to Firemane. Granted, a simulation is not the real deal and it won't change what really happened, but still.... Taking on Firemane.....?"
  • Acidburn: "..... Your actselly right. Plus, simulation or not, HOW COOL IT WOULD BE TO BE THE ONES WHO TOOK DOWN FIREMANE!?"
  • Lightning: "But that's not what happened."
  • Acidburn: "That's the joy of simulations. It's not like time travel. You can make any change you want and it won't effect the grand sceame of things."
  • Lightning: "That's, even AWESOMER?!"
  • Lightning and Acidburn zoomed off!
  • The Main 7 were seen hiding.
  • Starlight: "I, don't think we planned on them messing with the simulations."
  • Applejack: "Perhaps not, but the main overall idear is to get Acidburn to bond with Lightning Dust so much, he'll lose interest in being with the Gargoyles."
  • Spike: "Yeah, but, it'll end up giving Lightning Dust the wrong ideas about the history."
  • Rarity: "Oh worry not, we can always have her retake all of those lessons after all of this is over. Until then, let them have their fun."
  • A Squaderen of Firemane troops were suddenly smacked away by the duo of Acidburn and Lightning Dust!
  • Firemane forces surrounded the duo.
  • Acidburn: "..... Ready to kick Firemane ass, Lightning?"
  • Lightning Dust: "More then the Wonderbolts."
  • Firemane Trooper #1: WHO THE F*** ARE THEY?!?
  • Firemane Trooper #2: WHO CARES?!? CREAM THEM!! (They attacked as they ended up getting their butts kicked)
  • Wonderbolt #1:... Sir... Who are those two?
  • Commander Dazer: Cheap vigilantes, that's for sure! But they seem to be helping. I'll confront them myself! (Flies over to them as Firemane Troops attempted to use knives to cut them and he knocked them out)
  • Acidburn: YAH!... Uh... Commander Dazer!
  • Commander Dazer: What business have you strangers got to get into this battlefield? You could've been killed!
  • Lightning:... It's just... We've got nothing better to do.
  • Commander Dazer: Is that right? Hmmph, you guys have got skills. But are you sure you can take care of yourselves?
  • Acidburn: (Chuckles) Is that a challenge? Well, prepare to be amazed! (The two faced a dozen Firemane Troopers)...
  • Lightning: (The two nodded, and Acidburn hurled her towards the troops as she bounced across and knocked them out one-by-one like a pinball, surprising Dazer)
  • Commander Dazer:.. HOLY EQUESTRIA!!! THE PINBALL MANEUVER?!? NOPONY'S EVER PERFECTED THAT TECNIQUE SINCE GENERAL FIREFLY!
  • Acidburn: You'd be surprised what a few measly strangers can do.
  • Lightning: (She stopped the maneuver as all the Firemane Troopers were unconscious)
  • ???: "VAT IS ZE MEANING OF THIS!?"
  • A Dictator dressed skinny Pegacious with fire-themed mane and tail with an onicle flew in.
  • Dictator: "My squadern being beaten by unarmored vigilanties?! HUMILIATING!? This is unacceptable!? The Firemane can't be beaten like this?!"
  • Commander Dazer: "Just admit defeat Fire Bane. Your desire to bring the end of the alicorn rule has fallen short."
  • Fire Bane: "You fool, Dazer! Can't you see that ze age of the gods is over!? Celestia's parents are slain, and Luna has vanished! Celestia, is nothing but the final strain of a dying breed?! She needs to be disposed off if we hoped to survive as a nation!? The time of ze gods is dead!? Why defend that!?"
  • Commander Dazer: "Because it ain't right to abandon Celestia after all she has done for us! Apart from that, Solar Flare fiasco, she was a damn good ruler, and good enough for those still willing to have faith in her?!"
  • Fire Bane: "YOU'RE BEING A FOOL, DAZER!? If they can't even survive against alien pirates, let alone their own self-corruptions, HOW CAN WE EXPECT CELESTIA TO EVER BE RELIEABLE!? She is nothing more then a failure waiting to happen!? She no longer controls the elements! She is weak!? The entire god race of the alicorns is WEAK now! We mortal ponies need to band togather and-"
  • Lightning Dust smacks Fire Bane down to the ground painfully, as he screams very loudly!
  • Lightning Dust: "SHUT THE F*** UP, YOU CELESTIA HATING TURD!?"
  • Acidburn: "Aww, I wanted to be the one to bring the pwn to Fire Bane."
  • Lightning Dust: "Ok. (Stomps on Fire Bane's wing's painfully)."
  • Fire Bane: "AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!"
  • Acidburn pounced onto Fire Bane and began kicking his ass!
  • Dazer:... Where did you two come from? I wanna know where you learned these skills!
  • Lightning: Well, it helps when you're inspired by a military that lights the skies like fireworks.
  • Dazer:... Charmed, I'm sure.
  • Fire Bane: (Manages to get away from Acidburn) YOUR PARTNERS ARE MEANINGLESS, DAZER!? THIS WAR IS STILL MINE FOR THE TAKING!? I am going to be ze leader of independence among us ponies! We have proven well zat we can do just fine without ze Alicorns.
  • Dazer: Are you kidding? The Sun and Moon are too much for even unicorns to control. Before King Nightus and Queen Heavenslight came, the Orbital Crisis was too much for unicorns to handle. The Sun and Moon were just too heavy for even their magic. They were one of the many elements of nature that only Alicorns could wield. What you're doing is going to bring that problem back!
  • Fire Bane: Say vhat you want, Commander, but my mind is made up! I shall not rest until Celestia is out of ze picture!
  • Dazer: Which is why you MUST be stopped! (He and Lightning attacked Fire Bane and kicked his butt even hard, and it ended up hurting Fire Bane as he screamed and fell to the ground bleeding, moaning, and flinching in pain)
  • Acidburn: "...... Ok, WHY was this phathic clown ever a leader of an infamous organisation? He never even fought back or had any form of millaterry training!? Hell, it seems he's too old for combat, so fighting appears to be fatal to him."
  • Lightning Dust thinks: "Yeah, it's no wonder why the movie replaced Fire Bane with a cooler bad guy..... Hey, Oak, why is this clown a leader of a anti-alicorn organisation if he can't fight?"
  • (Oak Golden): Actually, he didn't start out as a non-fighter. He just lost the ability to fight permanently during this war when he ended up getting several injuries that crippled him and took away his ability to fight for good. He was a FLAWLESS fighter who killed a decent amount of ponies brutally and with no hesitation. However, when the Wonderbolts cornered him during the Battle of Hoofer Dam, his mistake of killing a Wonderbolt's twin daughter rookies made him pay the ultimate price. One of his wings got broken by the vengeful father, and the impaired flight caused him to crash into many areas near the Dam, broke both of his front hooves, fractured his skull, broke his tail, and he ended up drowning in the Dam's water. He was recovered by his troopers, and the accident had broken his wrists and tore a bit of the muscles, meaning that he'll never be able to punch again without tearing the muscles any further, the skull fracture, though it didn't do any brain damage, can cause severe headaches that make it difficult for him to concentrate in the battlefield, but it also caused an infection in one of his eyes, which is why he wears that monocle to see properly, and lastly, he can't fly that fast anymore because some of the wing bones have been dislocated and broken so severely, they couldn't be placed back into their sockets. The poor bastard was forced to lead without anymore physical combat, and declared that the protection of the leader of the Firemane Group was the greatest priority of all, because with crippled fighting, he doesn't stand a chance.
  • Lightning: ("... THEN WHY THE F*** DID HE COME ONTO THE BATTLEFIELD WHEN HE IS CRIPPLED FROM FIGHTING?!?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("I said that this was the final battle of the Firemane War. This battle is taking place on Firemane Base Territory. The troopers have been forced to protect and relocate their leader and prevent any of the Wonderbolts from reaching him. But the Wonderbolts found him and took out his guards.")
  • Lightning: ("AND HE DIDN'T BOTHER TO HIDE ANYWAY?!?")
  • (Oak Golden):... ("Okay, maybe that skull fracture DID do a few things to his brain, so I guess that justifies it.")
  • Dazer: Fire Bane, you do realize that your injuries have permanently disabled your fighting skills. AND we've taken out your troopers, AND will take out any other troopers who try and intervene. You made a mistake showing yourself to me. So, are you gonna come quietly, or do I have to call for backup?
  • Fire Bane was making pained sounds......
  • Acidburn: "...... Sir, I don't think he's in the position to even try to defy you."
  • Dazer: "..... I, think we may've gone overboard."
  • Lightning:... Well, s***!
  • Dazer: (On transmission) This is Commander Dazer requesting pickup. We found Bane, but he's wounded himself severely trying to defend himself. The wounds seem to look fatal.
  • Lightning:... ("PLEASE tell me this happened in real life!")
  • (Oak Golden): ("Thankfully, yes. Defending himself from Dazer and two other teammates was just too much for him. He died the next day after bleeding out, as well as the wounds being far too fatal. This successfully ended the war, and the Wonderbolts triumphed.")
  • Lightning:... So... I guess that's it for him, huh?
  • Dazer: I fear so. But one thing will come out of it. The end of this war. The Firemane Group is no more without their leader. The Wonderbolts can finally claim another victory.
  • Lightning:... ("Wow, Oak, you weren't f****** around when you said the Wonderbolts' past was dark.")
  • (Oak Golden): ("When it comes to war, EVERYTHING is dark. But this simulation isn't over. (Suddenly, the scenery changes into one with different architecture)... Welcome to the Fourth Celestial Era.")
  • Acidburn:... This looks like the Fourth Celestial Era.
  • Lightning: Yeah, it kinda does.
  • (Oak Golden): ("This is the next period of significant Wonderbolt history because, ever since the Firemane War, splinter groups originating from them began forming in concentrated areas all across Equestria. The Wonderbolts would continue to track them down and destroy them until today. They went on and on, even after Commander Dazer passed away. In this time period, the only splinter cell left is the deadly Cold Fire Cell. They were among the most well-defended remnants of the Firemane Group, and right now, the Wonderbolts, now currently lead by Colonel Purple Dart, are finally ending the remnants of the Firemane Group once and for all. The CFC's leader, Freezer Burns, is much more competent, more dangerous, and FAR more skilled than Fire Bane. He showed no mercy to any pony who stands in his way. He killed over a dozen Wonderbolts, making him one of the worst adversaries in the Fourth Celestial Era.")
  • Lightning: ("So... Where is this base? And where's the battle?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("It hasn't happened yet. The Wonderbolts are doing a stealth mission because the defenses in this place are top-notch. Even the Wonderbolts have never made it through alive. With so many recruits lost, the Wonderbolts are finally becoming proactive, and attacking together.")
  • Lightning: ("... What kind of defenses are we talking about?")
  • (Oak Golden): ("Sharpshooter ponied turrets that can fire fatal shots, very dense metal compositions, a LOT of diligent and VERY competent guards armed with flaming crossbows, and restricted areas guarded and surrounded by poles with bells hanging on them. (Lightning was confused)... It's kind of a primitive yet advanced form of security lasers. Keep in mind that not that much advanced technology existed during this time period.")
  • Lightning: ("Oh, okay!")
  • Acidburn: Why do you keep pausing like that?
  • Lightning: I kinda have a guide in my head in the form of my friends' magical map's AI who was a former ghost creator of Ponyville's old library. (Acidburn was confused)... Yes, I know that sounds bats*** crazy, just roll with it, okay? It's true. She says that this is a battle against the Cold Fire Splinter Cell and the Wonderbolts. They're currently doing their attack stealthily.
  • Acidburn: Oh, come on, what's the problem with going through swinging?
  • Lightning:... The Cold Fire Cell is kinda more competent than the rest of the splinter cells formed by the dying Firemane Group. Freezer Burns is NOT an injured mess like Fire Bane, and he sure as hell is better at fighting than he ever was.
  • Acidburn: "It's a simulation, remember? We're in NO real danger."
  • Lightning Dust: "..... Good point."
  • Acidburn:... So... How do we start?
  • Lightning Dust: Good question. How DO we start? We're just in some forest.
  • (Oak Golden): ("The CFC hid in secluded forests under a canopy easily shrouded from Wonderbolt patrols. Not to mention that the CFC Troopers are patrolling the entire forest for intruders.")
  • Lightning: Oh, boy, that doesn't sound good.
  • Acidburn: What doesn't sound good?
  • Lightning: She said that there are patrols all over this forest. We'd better find somewhere to hide before- (They were immediately held at crossbow-point by the CFC Troopers)... Before this happens.

CFC Base

  • CFC Trooper #1: (They were thrown in front of a blue-and-white-haired pony in his office) We found these intruders in Sector 12-E, sir!
  • Blue-and-White Pony (Freezer Burns): Hmmph! I do not appreciate those kind of ponies coming into my territory unannounced. Who are you?
  • Lightning Dust:... Uh... We're treasure hunters. We hear there's treasure in- (A crossbow was held in her neck)
  • Freezer Burns: Don't EVER lie in my presence! This forest has NOTHING of worth, and you know it! I want the truth, or we'll make sure that the corpse they find of you THEY WILL NEVER RECOGNIZE AS A CORPSE!
  • Lightning:...
  • Freezer Burns:... Well, your intolerable silence seems to tell me everything. You must be Wonderbolt spies.
  • Acidburn: Actually, we're-
  • Freezer Burns: SHUT UP! There's no way we can let you live! Not after what you did to us in the past! So, for your actions against our community...
  • Acidburn: Uh, look, we're not actually-
  • Freezer Burns: WE SENTENCE YOU TO DEATH!
  • Acidburn: Uh, excuse me, if you will just-
  • Freezer Burns: EVERYPONY, READY YOUR CROSSBOWS! (They armed themselves)
  • Lightning:... Fine! Go ahead! Kill us. I'm sure you'll be surprised. GO ahead, Freezer Burn! Do your worst!
  • Freezer Burns: "...... Wow, do these two have a death wish or what? Never knew wonderbolts like that. Oh well. FIRE!?"
  • The Troops did that, but the arrows phase through Lightning Dust and Acidburn and hit Freezer instead?!
  • Freezer Burns: "AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!? HOW, DID YOU MISS THEM!? THEY'RE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!?"
  • Troop: "We did hit them!? The arrows, just went through them?!"
  • Freezer Burns: "........ HOW IS THAT POSSABLE!?"
  • Troop 2: "Well first we aim the crossbow at them, then we fire, (fires arrow and it phases through the duo and hits Freezer Burns in the eye) THEN THAT HAPPENS!?"
  • Freezer Burns: "AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!? MY F****** EYE!?"
  • Troop 3: "Uh oh! You might've missed that! Here! (Fires the arrow, it phases through Acidburn and hits Freezer Burn in the crotch!) OH!?"
  • Freezer Burns: "(SCREAMS IN HIGH PITCH!?)"
  • Troop 4: "OK, I THINK WE CAN SAFELY ESTABLISH THAT WE CAN'T KILL THESE TWO!? Maybe they are just industructable treasure hunters who came to a bad place in a bad time."
  • Freezer Burns: ".... Ok, maybe that treasure hunter thing's more believable now. But...... WHY ARE YOU TWO INDESTRUCTABLE?!"
  • Lightning: "Easy. This is all a simulation and your all just simulations of ponies long gone."
  • Freezer Burns: "...... WHAT!?"
  • Acidburn: Exactly what we tried to tell you, jackass! This is only a simulation. And WE'RE the real deal. So technically, simulated weapons don't do nothing to us.
  • Lightning Dust: "Yeah. Your basicly a hallogram of a long gone splinter cell leader from like......"
  • (Oak Golden): "Half a centaury ago."
  • Lightning Dust: "Half a centaury ago."
  • Freezer Burns: "...... Ya mean......... We........ We lost?"
  • Lightning Dust: "Yup. Also, because this is a simulation, you can't change history, cause this has no effect on the time stream, what-so-ever."
  • Freezer Burns: "............. I FOLLOWED THE WORDS OF AN IDIOTIC MADPONY, FOR NOTHING!? (GRABS A KNIFE AND SLICES HIS OWN THROAT!?) GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA (Plops to the floor) BLAH?!"
  • The Troops look incredably shocked, some are depressed.
  • Acidburn: "...... So...... Can we go now?"
  • Troop leader: "..... OH, FINE, THERE'S NO POINT ANYMORE!? LET THEM GO!?"

Later...

  • Lightning: (They were seen walking out of the hideout as Wonderbolt action was seen and heard behind them)... Well... That happened out of nowhere.
  • Acidburn: Yeah, what a loser! But... Uh... What REALLY happened?
  • Lightning: Beats the hell out of me. We kinda inadvertently disrupted our own lesson. And there's DEFINITELY no do-over after how that guy just killed himself.
  • Acidburn: Hey, like you said, we needed to humor your friends. What better way to humor them than by mocking a simulated pony to death?
  • Lightning: (Chuckles) Now that you mention it, that was kinda funny..... In a dark comedy sort've way. (The two laughed as this was all watched by the Mane Seven)
  • Starlight:... Uh... They didn't get a bit of history on how this battle turned out.
  • Pinkie: But hey, at least they're having a GOOD laugh about it.
  • Fluttershy: Yeah, but they're doing it at our expense.
  • Pinkie: Yeah, but still.
  • Twilight: I'm still weighing my options about this. I feel that Lightning may not learn much if they continue doing the lessons like this.
  • Applejack: If we should blame anypony, we should just blame Freezy. He's the one who inadvertently caused his own suicide.
  • (Oak Golden): "Oh worry not. They just usurped the Wonderbolt agent took down the splinter cell. Turns not, Freezer Burn was susceptable to supersitions. The agent tricked him into believing that he was from the future and that the cell already lost 1 month from now and that he would be taken to be sentenced to death. Freezer desided to never allow that future to happen by axing himself in that way, and the others just gave up. So, by all counts, in this case, they didn't ruined things THAT badly, apart from making Freezer look like an even bigger imbacile."
  • Twilight: "... Oh... Well, that's good."
  • Lightning: (They both stopped laughing)
  • Acidburn:... You know, I never considered joining you on these freaky simulations, Lightning. I mean, making fun of them by sabotaging the simulated reality just to humor ourselves and your friends, AND getting to learn the entire history. THIS IS FUN!
  • Lightning: TOTALLY! (The two high-fived with their wings)
  • Acidburn:... ("Though... This kinda betrays my current mission. But I just can't help but feel compassionate for ol' Dusty. She seems like she couldn't hurt a fly unless it kicked serious ass. Why did Man-Vulture consider having her a part of us? All this plan would do is give us an ill-gotten henchpony. And the Gargoyles already look like rotten hypocrites with me as it is. Oh, Celestia, I'm not sure what to do. (Sighs) Keep it together, Acidburn. Just see how this plays out.")
  • Lightning: Okay, why were YOU pausing? Was Oak talking to you?
  • Acidburn: Oh, uh, nothing, I was just... Pondering as to what time period we'll be experiencing next. (Chuckles)
  • Lightning:... Well... Whatever it is, we'll be experiencing it together. (They high-fived with their wings again as music plays and the two experience a lot of different battles and events along the way)
Through My Own Eyes- Aaron Carter and Kayla Hinkle

Through My Own Eyes- Aaron Carter and Kayla Hinkle

  • Elsewhere, this was witness by Spinok, Segnal, and Jibb.
  • Jibb: "..... (LAUGHS)! Looks like you are gonna owe me some Gar-Pennies soon, Spinok?!"
  • Segnal: "Uh, this doesn't look good over here, um, I'm pretty sure the guy's suppose to NOT be part of the lessons."
  • Spinok: "..... As the Man-Vulture predicted, it appears Acidburn's purity has gotten the better of him."
  • Segnal: "Wait a minute, I thought Elfwork took care of that!"
  • Spinok: "Obviously, the fact that Lightning Dust is emensely devoted and so in love with him, that it cleansed away Elf's curse and already he looks as if he is in great conflict with the mission."
  • Jibb: "Yeah, and costing YOU a good bet!"
  • Spinok: "(Growls), YOU IMBACILE?! (BITCH-SLAPS JIBB)! A SILLY WAGER IS THE LEAST OF OUR PROBLEMS!? Our plan is in danger! In Jeoperty! Compromised!"
  • Jibb: "..... Your right! Those ponies are using our own trump card against us! We've been duped! Banboosled!? WE'VE BEEN SMECKLEDORFED!?"
  • Spinok: "THAT'S NOT EVEN A REAL WORD, YET I AGREE?!"
  • Segnal: "So what the hell are we suppose to do about this, smart guy?"
  • Spinok: "Exactly as Man-Vulture instructed. We capture those those two and lure Lightning Dust into our side our way. We'll worry about the rainbow one in good time."
  • Jibb: "Finally, some action! I'm gonna remind that ungrateful double-crosser what happens when you cross the Gargoyles! On the sound of my catchphrase, we charge in! 1.... 2...... 2 and a half..... 2 and three qurters..... Eleventy hundred........ Chimichangas.......... Pingas........ (Segnal and Spinok stared annoyed)...... Randy Newmen......... 3!? SCREAMING EAGLES!?"
  • Suddenly, a heavy bowling ball smacked into Jibb's face!
  • Jibb: "(Muffled) Damn it."
  • Segnal and Spinok laughed uncontrolably!
  • Suddenly, a watermelon hit Segnal in the face, stopping Spinok's laughter!
  • Spinok: "WHAT!? Obviously, this could be a problem!"
  • Jibb gets the bowling ball off.
  • Jibb: "All right, who's the damn wise guy who throw a sham of a chain-ball into my face?!"
  • Segnal gets the watermelon off.
  • Segnal: "That didn't hurt."
  • A Boxing glove smacks into both Jib and Segnal, Spinok being too fast on his feet!
  • Spinok: "Ok, who keeps doing that!?"
  • Spinok was about to say another line until a swinging mallet smacks into him and straight into Jibb and Segnal as they are sent flying into the simulation of the Razer Feather fight!
  • The trio slammed into the Razer Feathers and sent the girffins falling and screaming!
  • Lightning: "..... I, don't think those guys are part of the simulation."
  • Acidburn thinks: "OH NO!?"
  • Spinok: "OFF OF ME, YOU IMBACILES!? (PUSHES BOTH SEGNAL AND JIBB OFF?!)!"
  • Jibb: "Ok, not how I wanted to attack those two, but it got us noticed."
  • Spinok: "...... You are aware that your standing in the middle of nothing, right?"
  • Comical stings are heard as Jibb looks down.....
  • Jibb: "...... Damn it."
  • Jibb fell down Wile E. Coyote sytile screaming!
  • Segnal: "Heh, thank goodness we can fly and that this is all a simulation!"
  • Spinok: "But that's un-impourent. You two. Your coming with us."
  • Lightning Dust: "Sorry frenchy, but mom always told me to not go with strangers."
  • The Awkword Drum sound was heard.
  • Spinok: "........ How ironic considering recent events."
  • Segnal: "Yeah, NEWSFLASH sister! He's not who he's been saying he is! There's something you don't know about him lady, and that's-"
  • Lightning Dust: "He's Spitfire's brother."
  • Both Spinok and Segnal made surprised faces.
  • Seganl and Spinok: "What?"
  • Acidburn: "WAIT WHAT!? YOU KNEW?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "Tch, come on, I know you were obscured, but, any devoted enough Wonderbolt Fan has AT LEAST known of you, Acidburn. I mean, I know I'm not Twilight Sparkle smart, but, I'm not a retard! Like I would actselly fell in love with someone I didn't actselly known! Cause tecnecally, I did known about you from my Wonderbolt fandom. There's like, at least 15 Acidburn booths dedicated to you and lost Acidburn mercentdice, bud."
  • Acidburn: "..... Ok, but other then that, HOW DID YOU-"
  • Lightning Dust: "I have ansistreal spirits that inform me of major happenings. They told me about you and your new Gargoyle friends over there getting involved with a Man Bird and messing around with some kind of freaky magical pool. Your also kinda guilty of exposing the other wonderbolts teams' bases to those guys and got Delta captured so, yeah, dick move man, dick move. I mean, come on. How can you NOT expect my ansisters to not WARN ME of shit like this!? That Gala fiasco alone was proof that I have eyes looking over me in the beyond, and they wouldn't be very good ansisters if they DON'T warn me of this kind of stuff! I mean, come on. Your plan was to turn me into a stooge? Ugh, that's almost as bad as the Christail Empire Seige, and I'm glad THAT never happened!"
  • Acidburn: "....... AW MAN!? I just screwed over my people for nothing!? Well, I guess..... That means..... You never loved me."
  • Lightning Dust: "...... Acid, contuarary on what you think is gonna happen, that doesn't change my feelings for you..... Still, kinda dickish of you, your boss, your bad taste in friends, and seven certain mares and two dragons, to think I'm not smart enough to handle myself or know when something's fishy. I mean, ok, fine, I made stupid calls before, I suppose that justifives everyone thinking that I'm some kind of idiot, but I can actselly be more self aware then Patrick, scratch that, WAY more then Patrick if I am just given the chance...... So, I took it apawn myself to make it look like I was gonna be stupid again to set myself up to get you out of their reach.... Well that and, I do have a legit problem with learning Wonderbolt history, so, win-win. I get to mend the broken heart of a fallen legend...... And I get to go through simulations of greatest wonderbolt moments and kicked the butts of some of their greatest enemies.... Half of them anyway.... So nothing they or even Bird Man can say will changed my feelings for you....."
  • Acidburn felt his black heart melt into the true pureness he lost......
  • Acidburn: "..... Well played, kiddo.... Well played....."
  • The two both hugged and made out.
  • Spinok: "...... Well this is a disappointment."
  • Segnal: "...... WOW?! That mare was onto us the entire time?! I don't think the boss planned for this?!"
  • Jibb climbed back up!
  • Jibb: "(Groans)..... Did I miss anything?"
  • Segnal: "Dusty played us for saps!?"
  • Jibb: "........ Wow. I was not expecting that."
  • Spinok: "..... Well, it would appears that we would need to be even more forceful then ever before."
  • Spinok, Segnal, and Jibb got into fighting positions......
  • Acidburn: "Uh, Lightning, did you ansisters gave you advice on how to deal with the issue?"
  • Lightning Dust: "Actselly I'm kinda on my own with this."
  • Acidburn: ".... Really?"
  • Lightning Dust: "Hey I did said I wasn't "Twilight" Smart, so cut me some slack. Anyway, since we're against three gatgoyles assumingly WAY stronger then us, I think the best opition for us is..... EVASIVE MANUVERS!?"
  • Lightning and Acid zoomed away from the trio!
  • Spinok: "DON'T LET THEM ESCAPE, YOU DINGALINGS!?"
  • Jibb and Segnal proceeded to chase after the two!
  • Spinok: "..... I have an alarm to set."
  • Spinok flies off.
  • Lightning and Acidburn flie around as the two Gargoyles chase them!
  • Twilight quickly gets the idea to use simulations to help them!
  • Suddenly, the four began to enter simulations of past Spongebob and Friends Cronicles Adventures.

Simulation 1: Wrath of The Mutant Frog Genius.

  • Lucky Jack- Uh, guys? We've got company! (Zombies surround Lodge)
  • Icky- Uh-oh! Zombies!
  • Zombie Dog- BRAAAAIIIIINS!
  • Zombie Rabbit- SPLEEEHHHNS! (Spleens!)
  • Zombie Monkey- BUHHHTS! (Butts!) (Other zombies look at Zombie Monkey confusingly) I HEEHVE PROOHBLIMS, OKAHY? (I have problems, okay?)
  • Icky- They even sound like zombies.
  • Zombie Tiger- SWEEEHHHT JOOCY BRAAIIINS! (Sweet juicy brains!)
  • Zombie Wolf- BRAAAIIIN STYEEEHHHU! (Brain stew!)
  • Sandy- Seriously, I can't understand a word they're saying!
  • Po- Me neither.
  • Zombie Buffalo- PREEHPAYYRE TOO DIIHE! (Prepare to die!)
  • Spyro- What did he say?
  • Sparx- He said something about preparing to die... Either that or he wants you to repair a pie.
  • Lord Shen- ATTACK! (Lodgers and ponies begin fighting)
  • Suddenly, Lightning Dust and Acidburn flew in and caused all Lougers and Mutant Zombies to fly and scatter all over the place!
  • Segnal and Jibb were still following, until they get piled apawn by the simulated Lougers and Mutant Zombies!
  • Segnal: "(Muffled) This did NOT just happen."

Simulation 2: The Land Unknown

  • SpongeBob: Penelope! Guys! Did you find Xerxes yet?
  • Xerxes XX: As a matter of fact, they did! (They all gasp to see Xerxes XX with the Diamond, and a lot of MVM Soldiers arrive and hold the Lodgers at gunpoint with disintegration guns, and Xerxes cackles) Irony is so amusing nowadays! Anyway, you misfits must be the trouble-making Shell Lodgers I've been hearing about. And it seems your with Cynder.
  • Brandy: That's it in a nutshell.
  • Cynder: "...... Why are you people interested in me?!"
  • Xerxes XX: Well, let's just say, I have some personal business that I'll explain later AFTER I assuringly take care of ANOTHER, personal business. Either way, I'm afraid it's all over for you.
  • Xandy: Xerxes, what's the matter with you? You've got to be crazy trying to wipe out my species to extinction, why're you doin' this to me?
  • Xerxes XX: You wanna know? Well, that's on my to-do-list, actually. I'll tell you why I'm doing this, and you're really not gonna like it.
  • Xandy: What?
  • Xerxes XX: You don't know what happened to my parents in 1997?
  • Xandy: I didn't exist during that time.
  • Xerxes XX: EXACTLY! So I'm gonna tell you exactly why I despise your kind! It was in 1997-
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn bowled over Xerxes and his forces as bowling pin sounds were heard!
  • Xandy: "WHAT THE-, HOW IN THE...."
  • Magnum: "...... Oddly enough, I felt as if that wasn't suppose to happen."
  • Jibb and Segnal charged in, covered in the still present mutanted zombies!
  • Jibb: "GET THE FUCK OFF ME YOU MUTANTED UNDEAD MAGGETS!?"
  • Jibb and Segnal unknowingly dropped them apawn Xerxes and his group!
  • Mutant zombie voice: "FOOOOOOOOD!?"
  • Xerxes and his soldiers scream as gory sounds are heard as Jibb and Segnal looked at what they did.....
  • Jibb: "...... Just remember, they're simulations, son."
  • Segnal: "Also, we was never here!"
  • The two ran off!

Simulation 3: Icky and Iago: Birdbrains of the West

  • Iago- Holy shit! There's 2 mayors!
  • Sheriff- (Shrugs) I shouldn'tve guessed it! It's Louis, the Mayor's evil twin brother! He stole the Mayor's identity so he could get to do everything he told us!
  • Louis- That's right, Sheriff! You and your so called 'Shell Lodgers' are a bunch of JACKASSES! You totally fell for it, too! (Cackles) Hell, not even the Ambassador knew it was really me! But to hell with him, he'll never find out! All of yall' best drop yer' weapons, unless ya' reckon I splatter what's left of my brother's dinghy all over the floo-
  • Lightning Dust smacked down Louis like he was nothing and saved Mayor Albert.
  • Lightning Dust: "YOU LOUIS, ARE THE BIGGEST EXSAMPLES OF SHIT-TARDS I EVER MET!?"
  • Louis looks at Lightning Dust and Acidburn.....
  • Louis: "..... Did I, just get owned by a bunch of flying horses? Tiny flying horses? COLORFUL tiny flying hor-"
  • Acidburn punches his face into the ground!
  • Acidburn: "PWN'D, SUCKER?!"
  • Jibb and Segnal are seen on their way!
  • Acidburn: "WHA-OH, TIME TO GO?!"
  • The duo scramed as the other duo persuited!?
  • Garrot: "...... THE LIVING FUCK DID I JUST WITNESS!? DID PASTOON'S SUN FINALLY GOT TO ME?!"

Simulation 4: Metamorphosis

  • Axle: Out of my way, you damned vigilantes! I'm finishing what I started!
  • SpongeBob: You can't! Can't you see he's dying?
  • Axle: Yes! And I'll quicken the process for him! (Zaps Xenon with arcs of electricity)
  • Xenon: AAAAARRRRRRGH! AAAAAHHHHGH!
  • Shifu: STOP THIS MADNESS IMMEDIATELY, AXLE!
  • Axle: Forget it, raccoon face! You had your chance, and you failed! And now it's my turn, and I'm gonna finish this until the e-
  • Lightning Dust smacks down Axle, freeing Xenon from the torment.
  • Axle: "OW?! WHAT THE FUCK LADY?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "...... Believe it or not..... I actselly did you a faver....."
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn got away!
  • Axle felt breathing on him as a violently deranged Xenon looms over him.
  • Axle: "....... (Nerviously laughs)....... It's, not too late to say, I was joking?"
  • Xenon pounced onto Axle and began to mauled him!
  • Axle screams like a girl!
  • Jibb and Segnal ran by!
  • Segnal went back briefly to look at Xenon's mauling of Axle. Jibb came back and dragged him away!
  • Jibb: "COME ON, CUPCAKE!?"

Simulation 5: Fluttershy's Circus Stage Fright

  • El Amazeso gets a strong advanage on Spyro and prepares to drop him to the flesh eating Cobras!
  • El Amazeso: "It's time your reign ends here, dragon! Fluttershy is now my properity, and mine alone! And you? Your water fleash eating cobra chow! Any pityful hero rema-"
  • Acidburn kicks El Amazeso in the head and sends him falling and screaming to the flesh eating Cobras!
  • Splash and sound of violent hisses are heard!
  • The Audience gasped!
  • Acidburn: ".... Oddly enough, this was kinda meant to happen in a way."
  • Lightning Dust: "MOVE IT!?
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn high-tailed it as Jibb and Segnall charged in!
  • But the Gargoyle duo tripped over the trapese and fell into the Flesh Eating Cobra pool!
  • Jibb and Segnal: "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!?"

Simulation 6: War of the Hornets

  • Twilight: (Skeeterazoids break into library) What in the name of Celestia?
  • Spike: (Wakes up) Wha--I'm up, I'm up! (Sees Skeeterazoids) Uh, Twilight, what's going on?
  • Skeeterazoid Soldier: It's the one they call Twilight Sparkle! Get her!
  • But as the Skeeteraziods were about to infect her, Lightning Dust charges in and basicly annialates the Skeeteraziods!
  • Lightning Dust: "NO ONE THREATENS THE FUTURE PRINCESS OF FRIENDSHIP ON MY WATCH!?"
  • Twilight: "Wait, what!?"
  • Lightning Dust: "...... Oops...... You weren't suppose to know that."
  • Acidburn's voice: "YAAAAAAAAAAAAA-HHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?!"
  • Acidburn crashes Sting'n Bite into the libary!
  • Sting'n: "OW MY FREAKING GODS?! I'M IN SO MUCH PAIN THAT YOU GOTTEN ME TO NOT SPEAK IN MY PEOPLE'S NATIVE TONGUE!? OH!? OH?! I AM SHOCKED TO DISCOVER THAT YOU LITTLE EQUINES ARE MORE DANGERIOUS THEN YOU LOOK?!"
  • Jibb and Segnal barged in.
  • Jibb: "Tell us about it."
  • A flesh eating cobra came out of Jibb's robe and hissed!
  • Jibb grabed it and throw it off, unintentionally at Sting'n Bite instead of Acidburn!
  • The Flesh Eating Cobra began biting and eating Sting'nBite as he screams blood curddleingly!
  • Jibb: "...... DAMN IT?!"

Simulation 6: The Seas of Captain Legend

  • Blot: I bet you're feeling lost. Scared. Confused! Allow me to explain! Help me out, Boys! (Music plays)
  • Frank: Ooh, the captain's gonna sing a shantee! (Fluttershy whimpers)
  • But before Blot can start singing, Lightning Dust and Acidburn charged across the ship and bowled over the entire crew!
  • Rainbow Dash: "....... OH I CALL BULLS*** ON THAT ONE?! They can handle US just fine, but NOT a surprise attack from those two?!"
  • Blot: "WHAT THE- HEY, I'M SURE THAT WASN'T SUPPOSE TO BE ON THE SCRIPT!?"
  • Blot gets pushed over by Jibb and Segnal as they ran forword!
  • Jibb: "SCREAMING EAGLES!?"
  • The Gargoyles steal the entire ship and set sail torwords the two ponies!
  • Blot: "HEY!? THAT'S MY SHIP YER STEALING, YOU FLYING GOBLINS?! UN-HAND IT NOW OR-"
  • Segnal: "BONK!?"
  • Segnal smacks Blot away with the baseball bat!
  • Blot was sent screaming and flying!
  • Blot's crew paniced!
  • Jibb: "All right, you worthless simulations!? You listen to me now! AND YOUR GONNA HELP US CAPTURE THOSE TWO PONIES?!"
  • Ratpture: "And what happens when we refused, freak!?"
  • Silence......
  • The entire crew was tossed over to sea!
  • Jibb: ".... Ya could've been a help to us."
  • Segnal tossed the simulated heroes out to sea as well, who luckly they were saved by another life boat.
  • Segnal: "Got rid of the dead waight, Jibb."
  • Jibb: "Looks like we'll have to man this vessel ourselves."

Simulation 7: The Shark of Lake Paradiso

  • Spencer: He's more angry than ever! We can't stop him now!
  • SpongeBob: Oh, yes, we can. Goliath may be explosion-proof, but what about the INSIDE? Rico, see if you can get Goliath to swallow one of your bombs
  • Rico: Aye-aye! (Hacks out time bomb)
  • Skipper: I hope this works, because if it doesn't, we're dead.
  • Goliath charges at the navial ship again!
  • Rico: Smile, you son of a bit-
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn accsidently sent Rico flying when flying too fast as Rico screams were heard!
  • Goliath stopped his advance and began chasing after the duo, as Blot's ship controled by the Gargoyle duo was seen!
  • Segnal: "LET'S GO LET'S GO!?"
  • Jibb: "GO GO GO!?"
  • Goliath then proceeded to attack the pirate ship!
  • Jibb and Segnal saw Goliath and scream!

Simulation 8: Superior Planet

  • Shamus and a huge private space ship hovers over an ocean, with the Lougers and Ororo and gang tied up.
  • Shamus: "Believe me eveyone, Algor included, it is against my better judgement to claim life.... But my people cannot be properly protacted if you all know this. (He levitates the gang over the ocean.) I promise you, I have no faith that I will fully get away with taking away powers of superiors, but at least, I saved them from Predjudes and Xenophobia of normals. May you find peace in knowing that. (He drops them, as they scream).... And I am left, with a guilty heart.... Not even seeing my vision would cheer me up."
  • The ship leaves as everyone tied togather is still falling!
  • They plunge into the water. The Mane 6, Trixie and Gilda turn into their merpony and mergriffin forms, and the non-aquatic Lodgers struggle to break free.
  • Twilight: I can't break free!
  • Ororo: (Gurgling) HELP!!!
  • Walt: It'ssshh no usshhe. He'ssshh ressshhtrained usssh with anti-power energy chainsssh, sshho our sshhuperpowerssshh are unaffective.
  • Rainbow Dash: You're kidding! We gotta get these guys to the surface before they all drown!
  • Rarity: "But Algor is sinking like a rock!"
  • Master Algor: (Gurgle-shrieks like a female)
  • Spike: Yeesh, not the first time someone's squealed like a girl.
  • Rainbow Dash: How're we gonna get out of here, then?
  • Suddenly, Lightning Dust and Acidburn saved the tied heroes.
  • Icky: "WHAT THE-"
  • Lightning Dust: "NO TIME TO EXPLAIN!? WE'RE BEING CHASED!?"
  • Lord Shen: "WHAT IN THE, HOW IN THE-"
  • Roars are heard!
  • Everyone looks at a certain direction in shock.
  • Acidburn: "ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!"
  • Jibb and Segnal laugh as they ride on top of a roaring Goliath!
  • Ororo: "OH THAT IS ONE ASS-UGLY SHARK!?"
  • Lightning Dust quickly unties the lougers and friends!
  • Lightning Dust: "SAVE YOURSELVES?! IT'S US THEY WANT?!"
  • Before the heroes can say anything, they were tossed straight into land as Lightning Dust and Acidburn resumed being chased by the Goliath riding Gargoyles!

Simulation 9: Stars of Piracy

  • Lamistan: (Teleports to the top of the fortress, and finds the Stargate still intact) Now, let the Pirate Empire begin! (Cackles until Raxx Rex, a giant flying worm, appears and gobbles up the Stargate) WHAT THE HELL?!? (Sees Raxx return to the SS Axxus, and they blast off) NO! Everybody, man your stations! I want everyone to go after theSS Axxus. Repeat, I want EVERYONE to go after the SS Axxus and retrieve the Stargate.
  • Elsewhere in the background of the simulation, Lightning Dust and Acidburn are still being chased by the Gargoyle Duo riding on Goliath.
  • Acidburn: "We need to ditch these two and their new friend!"
  • Lightning Dust: "(Sees the start of the ship chase of the Lamistand stargate.)..... I have an idea!"
  • Goliath roars!
  • Acidburn: "WELL IT BETTER BE GOOD?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "We'll have Goliath crush by the giant stargate!"
  • Acidburn:... Are you sure that will work?
  • Lightning Dust: It's better then nothing!
  • Segnal: (They flew off of Goliath and onto the ship) Let's get 'em!
  • Jibb: ATTAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!! (Goliath leaped out of the water as everyone, including the simulated heroes and villains were in awe)
  • Grinjis:... WHHHAAAAATTTTT AAAANNNNN UUUUGGGGLLLLLYYYYY SSSHHHHAAAARRRRRKKKKKK!!! (The insult knocked Goliath out cold due to Grinjis' natural physical insults, all in slow motion, where at the correct spot, the Stargate dropped onto Goliath and killed him, sending the Gargoyle duo flying and screaming!)
  • Lightning Dust: "LET'S GET GOING!?"

Simulation 10: A Shell Lodge Vacation Cruise Gone Wrong

  • SpongeBob: (Dubbed as Peter Pan) Alright, Le Rat. You heard what Spyro said! You and your men are free to go and never return. VICTORY SREECH! LOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOOLOO!! (The other rats nod as they prepared to leave Le Rat to his comeuppance)
  • Girl Sora: (Notices Le Rat getting out his pin sword) Spyro! SpongeBob! Look out behind you!
  • Lightning: (They came out of nowhere and rammed straight into Le Rat, as he ended up getting stuffed into Lightning's mouth)... HMMPH?!?... (Spits him out) BLECH! Have you TASTED yourself already?!? OH, WHO THE HELL AM I KIDDING, YOU'RE A RAT!
  • Le Rat: YOU LE FOOLS! WHERE LE HELL DID YOU COME FROM?!? CAN'T YOU SEE I'M BUSY REAPING A RAT REVOLUTION HERE?!?
  • Acidburn: HAH! Are you kidding, small fry? You don't even come up to my chest! I could step on you in a split instant and-
  • ???: SCREAMING EAGLES?! (Jibb and Segnal crashed into the walls of the cruse ship!)
  • Segnal: Dude, I think that line's overused!
  • Jibb: YOU DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO, CUPCAKE! LET'S JUST KILL THESE SONS OF BITCHES!!!
  • Segnal: "Hey we're suppose to bring them back to the cave, rememer?!"
  • Jibb: "FORGET THAT NOISE?! Let's just kill them for putting us through simulated hell?!"
  • Le Rat: "Le excuse moi? What are you Notre Dom rejects le talking abo-"
  • Andre pounces onto Le Rat and eats him!
  • Andre: "HIGH SCORE?!"
  • Segnal: "That's gonna make us look disloyal to King George's wishes if we do that!?"
  • Jibb: "I DON'T CARE WHAT THAT HAS-BEEN SAIDS ANYMORE?! ONE OF THESE DAYS, HE DOESN'T DESERVE TO BE KING ANYMORE?! I, SHOULD BE KING?!"
  • Segnal: "Are you kidding me? Your a flightless hasbeen of your former self, elder! Even my grandmother would've been able to fly better then you, AND SHE HAD PARALISED WINGS?!"
  • Jibb: "WHY YOU MISERABLE INSULTING PIECE OF- (Notices that Lightning Dust and Acidburn are running away)...... DAMN IT?!"

Simulation 11: The Uniter Chosen

  • The "Farewell for now" Concert was about to start as it went, but suddenly, Lightning Dust and Acidburn charged through, surprising the audience, then suddenly, The Gargoyle Duo intersected Lightning and Acidburn and smack the two back at the stage, preventing more escapes.
  • Jibb: "ENOUGH HORSING AROUND, YOU JACKASSES?! (The Audience moans at that) IT'S ABOUT TIME I MAKE SOME HORSE JERKY!?"
  • Segnal: "What the hell's your problem man?! We ain't suppose to kill them!?"
  • Jibb: "I HAD IT UP TO HERE, WITH YOUR INSUBOARDENATION!? YOU ARE NOT GONNA INTERFEAR WITH THIS, CUPCAKE!?"
  • Jibb punches Segnal in the face hard!?
  • Segnal: "(Dazed) Ow."
  • Segnal falls down, knocked out.
  • Jibb: "And now, I'm gonna have me an all-amarican texas-sytile horse BBQ! WITH EXTRA MUSTARD AND SOME MAYO!?"
  • Acidburn: "I guess it was clearly a mistake ever helping you monsters in the first place if this is how you handle rejection?! Maybe that's why Equestia isn't yours anymore, because the universe thinks you don't deserve it anymore?!"
  • Jibb: "WHY YOU INSULTING PILE OF GARBAGE!?"
  • Jibb charged, but suddenly, a larger figure smacks him down!
  • The audience gasped!
  • Jibb: "...... All right, who's the jackass that dares- (Looks to see that it was King George, arriving with the other Gargoyles) GAAAH!? Oh hey, your, majusty...... How's, it hanging?"
  • King George: "DON'T ACT LIKE I NEVER HEARD WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT ME IN ONE OF THE SIMULATIONS, JIBB?!"
  • Jibb: "Oh. Ya heard that, huh? Look, your majusty, I can explain-"
  • Elder Mokoma: "YA AIN'T GOT MUCH TO EXPLAIN, YA TWO-TIMIN' TRAITOR!?"
  • Spinok: "I should've figured this would happen. I should've stayed instead of warning our forces."
  • Tecmeck: "Now you done crossed the boarder-line into hurtville!?"
  • Half-Face: "..... Now you'll be put down like the mangy mongrol you are."
  • Jibb: "Aw come on, guys, ya know me! I'm like this because the damn ponies did this to my wings! Ya can't blame me for being mad that they took away my flight!?"
  • King George: "AND HOW, DOES THAT PRIORITISE THE FACT THAT OTHERS LOST THEIR LIVES INSTEAD OF JUST BEING ABLE TO FLY!? DON'T YOU THINK THE REST OF US ARE SUFFERING FROM THIS MESS?! WE LOST THOSE WE CARED ABOUT, ALL BECAUSE WE PICKED AN IMMOPPERTUNE TIME TO TRY TO WARN A TROUBLED RACE OF SOMETHING THAT..... In hindsight, did sounded too hard to believe at the time, not helping that since they worked hard on establishing homes here, well, it also seemed alittle rude and it made us sound like lying terratorial jerks, BUT I DIEGRESS!? POINT IS, ALL YOUR GONNA DO IS JUSTIFY NEEDLESS HATE?!"
  • Jibb: "SAIDS THE HYPOCRITE WHO WANTS THE PONIES EITHER GONE OR DEAD?!"
  • King George: "THAT'S, DIFFERENT?! I AM ONLY DOING SO BECAUSE TOO MANY OF OUR KIND ARE HATEFUL TO PONIES BECAUSE OF OUR OWN MISTAKES AND OUR MISTAKES ALONE!? WE SHOULD'VE JUST LEFT THE PONIES ALONE AND HOPED FOR THE INEDITABLE!? BUT NO?! THAT DIDN'T HAPPENED?! NOW THANKS TO OUR IRRATIONALLY POOR JUDGEMENT, WE'RE BANISHED TO A CAVE?! AND ON TOP OF THAT, WE'RE ALL EXPOSED TO THE PONIES NOW?! YOUR IDIOTIC BEHAVIOR HAS ALWAYS DOOMED US SINCE THE DAY THAT YOU WERE THE ONE WHO SUGGESTED THAT WE GO TO WAR AGAINST THEM TO BEGIN WITH AND STARTED THIS MESS?! THE FALL OF OUR SPEICES IS YOUR FAULT?! EVERYTHING HAS BEEN YOUR FAULT!? KARMA DESIDED TO SERVE US A KINDNESS TAKING AWAY YOUR FLIGHT!? IT WAS COMMUPENCE AT FULL CIRCILE!? I, AM GLAD YOU ARE NOW A SHAM OF A GARGOYLE, CAUSE THEN THAT MEANS THERE IS SUCH A THING AS JUSTICE?! YOU WERE THE SHORCE OF WHY TOO MANY OF OUR PEOPLE ARE TOO ANGRY!? YOU CAUSED THEM TO BE ANGRY!? AND I CAN'T BELIEVE I ALLOWED YOU TO STAY AND LIVE CAUSE I ACTSELLY PITIED YOU!? I EVEN HAD REMORSE FOR YOU!? BUT IT WAS A MISTAKE!? A MISTAKE I SHALL CORRECT?! ELFWORK!? CURSE HIM INTO NEVER ESCAPING HIS STATUE FORM EVER AGAIN!?"
  • Elfwork: "Isn't that alittle too extreme, your highness? He is one of the last elders now and-"
  • King George: "NOW?!"
  • Elfwork: "...... (Sighs).... Javole, your majusty..... Sorry Jibb, I have to say, that the following proseedsure, will be, extrosiatingly unreverseable."
  • Jibb: "No nonononononononononononononono-"
  • Jibb got zapped by Elfwork and was turned to stone as Jibb screamed as he turned into a statue that he can never break free from!
  • The Simulation fades back into being a park, where the Main 7 charged in!
  • The girls gasped at the fate of the fallen Elder Jibb.
  • Acidburn: "...... Whoa....... Your highness..... I know that guy sucked balls, but..... That was way too overkill. He was like, your friend-"
  • King Geogre: "FRIEND!? How ironic that the fallen wonderbolt still has a caring for something he rejected the moment he attacked his own father?! YOUR clearly no better then he was!?"
  • Lightning Dust: "Your majusty, I know you speak from a broken heart and betrayed feelings from your people, and yeah, that Jibb guy was a total dick, but that wasn't how you should've handled him!"
  • King George: "WELL I TRIED KINDNESS BUT HE NEVER CHANGED!? HE CONTINUED TO BE A RELENTLESS ANGRY MONSTROSITY!? I HAD TO GET RID OF HIM, HE WAS GONNA RUIN EVERYTHING!?"
  • Spinok: "Sad to say, the imbacile already did ruined everything."
  • Segnal recovered and flinched in horror and shock at what became of Jibb!
  • Segnal: "OH, CRAP!?"
  • King Geogre: "IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER ANYMORE?! NOW WE MUST CAPTURE THESE TWO BEFORE THE MANE 7 ARE ABLE TO STOP US?!"
  • Twilight: "Gargoyle King, as the Princess of Friendship, I am issuing you a fair warning! The Barers of Friendship will stand up to your uprising! And don't think the purity sheild will be any use. The powers of the rainbow is more stronger then you think."
  • King George: "Indeed the princess taught you well. But it's meaningless in the end."
  • Two brutish figures appeared behind the ponies.
  • A Big brute Gargoyle and a Gargoyle with a bad eye was seen.
  • Pinkie was seen with sofisicated attire.
  • Pinkie: "Narbol and Pyrogrowmong, I presume?"
  • Narbol the brute: "Dah. I am Narbol..... And this, (Brings out a machine gun), is my weapon."
  • Pyro: "Ponies, must, BURN?!"
  • King George: "You would be wise to stand down against two of the most infamous Gargoyles of our entire kind. They defeated, and slain, ponies even greater then all of you combined. Now, Princess, I am sure you have enough of Celestia's wistom to know your not in a winnable battle."
  • Twilight sighed, and laid down.
  • The Others, knowing the situation is dire, did the same.
  • King George: "Oh..... To finally have a pony listen to you..... I just wished it happened sooner...... Then maybe Jibb would've not been redused to being a madman..... But I choose to not dwell in the past now. It is merely time for the future. And with this idiot gone, I am free to snap my fellow Gargoyles out of their hatred...... But I still owe them one thing, the thing they didn't needed Jibb for..... The return of our lands. And one way or the other, the ponies will have to leave, or meet their ends."
  • Applejack: "That's your problem, George. Ya'll clearly sound like you want to make peace with us, but your afraid of upsetting some people cause they're all ornry about losing what was once theirs. It's fine that these lands were once for Gargoyles, but.... Take a gander around....."
  • The Park, and the lands beyond is seen....
  • Applejack's voice: "It's obvious that Equestia ain't fit for Gargoyles' anymore. No perches to keep you safe from predators or vengeful folk. A huge sum of Gargoyle plants and foods don't really exist anymore, either went exinct or evolved into something entirely unrecindiseable. Everything relatin' to yer culture is long gone now. Equestia..... Is no Gargoyle Land anymore."
  • The Camera returns to the group.
  • Applejack: "Equestia, if anything, is basicly a death trap to you all now. If you take Equestia away from us, it's lack of capability to provide to Gargoyles will be the end of you. Gargoyles will not be able to adapt to these conditions..... Please consider that...."
  • King George: "I'm well enough of these inconvinences, farmer...... But Man-Vulture promises he restore at least half of what ree lost. He'll make Equestia acceptable to both our kinds."
  • Pinkie: "Both? But, I thought you wanted us out."
  • King George: "In a way, we still do. But even though many of us are angry at your actions, we cannot deny the fact that you have nowhere else to go. So the lands will be devided to Gagoyle Terratory and Pony Terratory. By the middle."
  • Twilight: "But it will be a terrorable inconvinence to the ponies that would lived in the re-gargoyled lands! They'll be left without homes?!"
  • King George: "I know your suriving gods will be kind enough to accept refugees and offer them a new life. After all, you wish to apologies to us? Nothing screams an absolute apology like deviding the land to both it's original true owners and the ones that were visitors."
  • Rarity: "Keep in mind that the Lougers and the Wonderbolts, to an extent, would long thwart your plans before you can even get to that bargain!"
  • King George: "And how can they dream to stand up to us without their weapon? Elfwork, jinxed them into being unable to use those powers!"
  • Elfwork proceeded to do just that and disabled the Main 6's ability!
  • Spinok: "So I guess this means we don't need that Purity serum anymore."
  • King George: "Not exactly. The Man-Vulture is still going to make it just in case. No spell or jinx is absolute."
  • Lightning Dust: "BROKEN SOUL OR NOT, I AM NOT GONNA LET YOU GET AWAY WITH THIS!?"
  • King George: "Your brave, but if you do something reckless, you'll only hurt yourself."
  • Lightning Dust: "WANNA BET, TOUGH GUY!?'
  • Lightning Dust charged!
  • King George: "HALF-FACE, STUN?!"
  • Half-Face: (Fires his crossbow as the arrow drugs Lightning into falling unconscious)... GOTCHA, YA' SPASTIC LITTLE GREMLIN!
  • Acidburn: NOBODY HURTS MY LOVE! (King George looked angrily at him)... Uh... (Chuckles)
  • Segnal: We shouldn't have trusted you! Now Jibb is gone! You ponies are always the same, and you CONTINUE to harm us! I'M GONNA HEADBUTT'CHA FOR BETRAYING US!!
  • King George: At ease, Segnal! We'll find a proper punishment for him soon enough. And the first step is to have his little girlfriend executed back in the Goyland Caves.
  • Acidburn: DON'T YOU DARE LAY AN UGLY CLAWED SAUSAGE ON HER, YOU BEASTS!!!
  • Narbol: (Snarls monsterously at that remark)...
  • Segnal: You see that, there? THAT'S what I'm talking about. You ponies are NEVER gonna change!
  • King George: With all due respect, people, he had a good reason. But he brought it upon himself for betraying us. And here, I was actually going to be grateful for you for giving us the locations of those Wonderbolt HQs. But now that our plan is at risk, as soon as we execute the Pegasus for turning him against us, we're going to destroy those Wonderbolt HQs one-by-one until the world is defenseless as we tear Canterlot to shreds. But first, before we do ALL of that, we must make sure that these 6 ponies are forbidden from using their powers against u-
  • A VIOLENT STAB WAS HEARD!?
  • King George screamed in pain as everyone was in shock!
  • King George was reveiled to have been impaled by Man-Vulture through his huge arm!
  • Man-Vulture: "..... Oh, your majusty..... I thought you knew better then that."
  • Man-Vulture snaps King George's neck to a cork-screw, leaving all in shock!?
  • Man-Vulture proceeds to take the fallen king off of him, then looms over Acidburn.
  • The other gargoyles, even Narbol and Pyro, shaked in fear of the Man-Vulture's might.
  • Man-Vulture: "...... May that serve as a reminder that unless I approve it, NO PONY DIES?! UNDERSTAND!?"
  • Spinok: "(Gulp)..... But alchourse masure.... Our mistake."
  • Man-Vulture: "..... Acidburn, consider yourself and Lightning Dust offictally pardoned from the Goyland caves. You gotten me something greater then just Miss Dust..... Though inadvertingly, you allowed me to have been able to have the Main 6, plus the ex-cutie mark communist, captured. I won't even need to make the serum anymore now that I have simply have the main barers captured and disabled. It's ashame I lost Jibb and King George in the progress, but my true plan worked out fine."
  • Acidburn: "YOUR TRUE PLAN!?"
  • Man-Vulture: "Oh my, Acidburn. Did you actselly think I was too quick to trust a creature of purity of deception? I knew it was all gonna fail from the start. Also, come on, you weren't actselly believing that I was gonna make anti-elemental magic serums considering that THIS was the end result of the last time I tried to defy biology! It would've end up backfiring horrably anyway! So thank thy for unwittingly set my true plan into motion! You see, my real goal was not to give the Gargoyle's their land back! I mean, let's be honest, Equestia's no longer suited for Gargoyles anyway! It was a pointless battle, and George was a fool for giving in to peer pressure!? No..... My true plan is greater, worthy of a savior! I, intend to use the magic pools, combined by my great generator, to emit waves of purity energy, to do what no hero has ever been able to succeed in! Bring purity to the universes! I'll used the power of Equestian Purity, combined with elemental magic, powered by this (Points to Starlight) powerhouse of a pony, to make my generator emit a wave of purity that'll spread to not just these universes, but universes beyond our comprehenson! I'll liberate all of existence from everything that plauges socity, espeically that of xenophobia! Soon the magnifisence of pony purity shall be spread!? IT WILL REDEEM MY FAILED EXSPEARIMENT OF BRING PONIES TO THE NATURE OF BIPEDISUM!?"
  • Segnal: "UGH?! YOU JACKASS?! YOU USED US TO PERSUE YOUR OWN AGENDA!? I VOTE WE KICK HIS ASS RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!?"
  • Spinok: "Actselly...... (Brings out a gun) I think not."
  • Segnal: "..... Wha..... Wha...."
  • Spinok: "Please don't leave your whats incompleted like that, you phathic halfwit. I was in on his plan the entire time..... Basicly, I never was really on your side."
  • Segnal: "OH!? NOT COOL, SPINOK?! GUYS, WE'RE NOT GONNA LET HIM GET AWAY WITH THIS, ARE WE?!"
  • Silence......
  • Elder Mokoma: "....... Let's be real about this lad. It was never our desteny to keep these lands."
  • Segnal: "WHAT?!"
  • Elfwork: "Ja. It's about time we're realistic about this and make a real attempt to do something better with our lives."
  • Tecmeck: "In truth, we wanted to be rid of Jibb and George for a few reasons, George was too weak to be a real leader like Man-Vulture, and Jibb, well we all know what he was like."
  • Spinok: "Jibb would've been a bigger danger to his true plan because of his idiotcy. I'm for one am glad to be rid of him."
  • Segnal: "Agh, wha, ohhhh! Narbol, Py, you guys are on my side, right?! I mean, Py, Man-Vulture killed your cousin, your not gonna let him get away with that, right?!"
  • Narbol: "It is not our place to defy the new king of gargoyles. Besides, George brought it to himself when he wanted to act like monster and kill Dust pony over bad circumstances."
  • Pyro: "Me loved George, but me no want to look like monster anymore. Me obey Man-Vulture."
  • Segnal: "UGH!? I CANNOT BELIEVE, WHAT I AM HEARING OVER HERE?!"
  • Spinok: "Believe it, you sorry bed-wetting excuse for a moron! Either you concede, or another Gargoyle will be lost today."
  • Segnal: "........ (SCREAMS LIKE A COWERD AS HE FLEW AWAY!?)"
  • Half-Face aimed to shoot Segnal down.
  • Man-Vulture: "Don't waste your ammo. He's no true threat anymore. If he wants to waste his life being viewed as nothing more then a miserable beast, that's his business. Purifying the universe wait's for no one..... Not even him."
  • Acidburn: "Mandreious, please, your not in your right mind! That serum you created is driving you mad!? I know the real Mandreious would never kill anyone?!"
  • Man-Vulture: "WELL THANKS TO A FATEFUL MISTAKE, THAT GRIFFIN IS NO MORE?! There, is only, Man-Vulture. And don't think I'll let you off without making sure your kept from being a problem. Elfwork. Erased his memory of us."
  • Main 7 gasped!
  • Spike: "BUT THAT WOULD MEAN ERASING HIS MEMORY OF LIGHTNING DUST?! THAT WOULD DESTROY THEIR ROMANCE?!"
  • Man-Vulture: "I'm sorry, but I have no choice. Elfwork, do it now!"
  • Rainbow Dash: YOU CAN'T JUST DESTROY THEIR ROMANCE!!!
  • Man-Vulture: I don't have a choice!? I can't risk Acidburn be used against us!
  • Elfwork proceeds to begin erasing Acidburn's memory!
  • Chow Mein: "YOU WON'T GET AWAY WITH THIS, YO!?"
  • Man-Vulture: "I believe it would appear as if I am."
  • Elfwork commences the spell as a flash happened!

Later.

  • Lightning and Acidburn were both seen knocked out as everything was gone, but a deseased King George and the statue of Jibb.
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn awoke.....
  • Lightning Dust: "Ohhhhh..... What happened..... Did, did those stupid Gargoyles just leave us and-"
  • Lightning Dust gasped when she saw what became of King George......
  • Lightning Dust: "..... Something tells me he went through a nasty betrayal."
  • Acidburn: "..... HOLY SHIT, ARE THOSE, GARGOYLES?! I THOUGHT THEY WENT EXTINCT!?"
  • Lightning Dust: "..... Acid, you, you suddenly forgotten about all this and- (Gasp)!...... That means..... Whoever did this made sure that you don't remember where the Goyland Caves were and...... You don't remember me anymore......"
  • Acidburn: "I think I would remember something about Gargoyles, miss! Anyway, you shouldn't've even seen me. I'm suppose to be in jail for a major screw up I did. Don't wanna talk about it. In fact, I better just get out of here before something happens to make me a screw up once again."
  • Lightning Dust: "Acid, please!"
  • Acidburn leaves and flies off somewhere far away!
  • Lightning Dust felt her heart broken......
  • Lightning Dust plopped to the floor and quietly sobbed.

Goyland Caves Dungeon

  • Rainbow Dash: (They were thrown into the Dungeon) YOU MONSTERS!!! YOU DESTROYED A PERFECT RELATIONSHIP OF TRUE LOVE!!!
  • Man-Vulture: Unfortunately, that's the whole plan. We remove their relationship so that Acidburn will turn himself into the authorities and NEVER come back, and Lightning will be too heart-broken to fight again.
  • Twilight:...WHY?!? HOW COULD YOU BE SO CRUEL?!? YOU CAN'T JUST DESTROY THEM LIKE THAT!!!
  • Man-Vulture: Look, I am not proud of it, but it's essentail to the plan's survival! My plan to turn magic into shared purity must not be stomped apawn by anything! So if a romance had to be compromised, what choice do I have but to make it as if it never happened. Enjoy your stay, for soon, the generator will be ready for you ladies.
  • Man-Vulture leaves.
  • Rainbow Dash:... HAH! Hilarious! Like she would EVER let that stop her when she can get him back that easily by getting the Wonderbolts and promptly beating the tar out of that freak!
  • Twilight: Rainbow Dash, I know you're upset about Man-Vultures actions, but you're making it sound like ended relationships have no consequences.
  • Rainbow Dash: It shouldn't! In fact, if Acdburn even STEPS into that Maximum Security Prison after hearing from the Wonderbolts about how much he had changed, they'll remind HIM immediately, he'll know where to go, and he'll kick Man-Vulture's ass. YOU'RE making it sound like this plan has no flaws when there's a LOT of them! You're making it sound like Lightning is too weak to even have the strength to set things right!
  • Twilight: Rainbow Dash, you know how sensitive Lightning is! She's sensitive about her own past! Remember her countless failures in matchmaking? She was socially incompatible, and yet she has now lost the only stallion who has EVER come this close to loving and caring for her. I mean, how would you like it if YOU were a failure at getting a very special somepony? Would YOU react if you were robbed of a lucky stallion who came THIS close to loving you?
  • Rainbow Dash: Oh, please, I considered myself socially incompatible before in the past when everypony started calling me Rainbow Crash! Even the Stallions didn't like me. Take a look at me now! I'm not so clingy on the past.
  • Twilight: (Sighs) Ranibow Dash, this is serious! Lightning is traumatically hurt! She lost her only boyfriend, and yet you expect her, as a pony who is CLINGY to the past, ESPECIALLY when she ALREADY knows what it's like to lose a very cherished pony like Daisy Beds, to get out of a predicament THAT easily?
  • Rainbow Dash:... I... I... Well, when you put it like that... I guess not.
  • Twilight: So somepony's gotta stop this. Lightning needs support if she's gonna step up and be the Wonderbolt she was born to be.
  • ???: Luckily, we're way ahead of you! (The SpyBug appears)
  • Lord Shen voice: "We saw what occured and could hardly believe what became of this mess. Mandreious killed the Gargoyle King just to protect what he considers impourent for his extreme agenda of purifying the universes with those magic pools! Pretty reckless for a genius! He has just left a trio of potainional allies in his wake of ridding himself of in-co-operative pawns."
  • Pinkie: "But there's only Segnal now. Mr. Georgey's dead and Jibb's stuck as a statue forever."
  • Merlin's voice: "AHEM! A cursed Gargoyle and a dead one are not things magilo can't fixed."
  • Lord Shen's voice: "As for this, "Segnal", Celestia is ahead of you on that. She sent the Wonderbolts to seek out that un-enlighten idiot."
  • Applejack: "That's great and all, but the Gargoyles as a whole are in trouble now. Gaia Everfree will awake soon, and she'll bring godly wrath onto the Gargoyles for what they were doing."
  • Lord Shen's voice: "Celestia personally will hand Gaia. Just hold on out, ladies. Man-Vulture will be redused to a Man-Child after we halt his rampage!"

Elsewhere.

  • Segnal was seen flying.
  • Segnal: "........ And all this just to take back a land no good for guys like me anyway. DAMN IT?! This could not get worse?!"
  • Suddenly, Giant Musquio-eqse Birds appeared from nowhere and began chasing Segnal!
  • Segnal: "(SCREAMS LIKE A GIRL)! MOTHERF****** CRANE-QUIOS?! WHY DOES THIS WORLD HAVE SUCH F*****-UP WILDLIFE?!"
  • Segnal screamed as the Crane-Quios chased him! Eventally, Segnal gets cornered!
  • The Crane-Quios hissed and buzzed in hunger.
  • Segnal: "..... Just please at least confirm that you guys don't have the Zika virus. I heard that's really bad to have these days." (The Cranequitoes shriek at him as he screams) I REGRET EVERYTHING! I REGRET EVERYTHING I'VE EVER DONE!!! (He screamed as he closed his eyes)
  • The Crane-Quios are about to pounce onto Segnal when suddenly-
  • Punches and slams were heard, as Segnal saw that the Crane-Quios are been beaten up by the wonderbolts as the creatures began to retreat!
  • Segnal: "..... Aw, crap...... Let me guess, ya don't want those freaks the satisfaction of killing me for everything I ever done, so ya only chased those unnatrol aboms off so you can finish me off huh? Well make it quick!? Life ain't worthy living anymore when your kind takes a king murderor more seriously then you! They no longer even care about getting back our land back?! I mean, fine, it no longer was Gargoyle asscessable anyway, but it was a matter of pride?! All we ever did, at first, was just trying to get you guys to leave because of the Windigoes?! Did it sound rude and terratorially challnaging? Fine?! Did it sound unbelieveable? Whatever I guess, perhaps ice ghost horses sounded too stupid to be believable! And maybe we were doing it at a bad time when you just awhile ago lost some of your gods! I get it?! It was all because Karma desided to really be shitty with us?! BUT THE FUCKING THING IS, WE CAN'T PHYSICALLY PUNISH AN ABSTRACT CONSECT, NOW CAN WE?!"
  • Spitfire: "But your guilty of making a bad situation worse by giving in to the actions of the Early Judu Des clan. They wanted your kind to react as negitively as you did so it would look like that they were right about what kind of creatures you are. By giving in to your anger, you yourselves made it look like that the ponies were right to have done what they did."
  • Segnal: "So what, are you saying that being a bunch of pussies would've changed your minds!?"
  • Spitfire: "Not nessersarly. The Early Judu Des clan would've adapted to that by saying that you were afraid of the might of ponies and it would've lead to your kind being banished to the Goylands."
  • Segnal: "WELL MAYBE IF YOU TOOK THE WINDIGOES SERIOUSLY-"
  • Breathflame came in.
  • Breathflame: "Even if the ponies did understood the Windigoes, it won't nessersarly mean that it will lead to better relations to Gargoyle and Pnoy kind. If anything, if our ansistry did acknowledge the windigoes, our ansisters were still not in their right minds. They would either end up blaming Gargoyle kind for the spirits, or think that they're a devine testiment of ridding the land of "the impurity of beasts". I'm afraid the Pony-Gargoyle War would've been ineditable even if the ponies believed in the Windigoes or not."
  • Segnal looked as if he's realising the fault of his kind.....
  • Segnal: "....... So, your saying that, the only way this mess would've been avoidable if we just-"
  • Breathflame: "Stayed clear of our ansistery, and let the problem be resolved on it's own."
  • Segnal: "...... Ok, fine, maybe we were being the stupid ones here, but we can't help it if we can't predict the off chance you guys realised that on your own!? We didn't know about Clover the Clever, so as far as we're aware, it looked like you guys were never gonna realise on your own! We're not psycitcs, ya know!"
  • Breathflame: "True. You couldn't've predict what would happen. And you had the right to worry about the uncertainty of the future. But your kind made a very common mistake any rouge members of the Mythic Community made: Expecting Purity meaning being Non-Violent. Just because a creature's pure, doesn't mean it doesn't believe in fighting back or having faults. Purity is not the same as perfection. If anything, our purity only means that it's harder to make us truely evil."
  • Segnal: "..... Aw, all right, maybe you guys were only dicks to us because, that purity thing was, kinda out of wack, right?"
  • Breathflame: "Yes. But please know we are not solely relying on it as a justifycation for our actions. Aside from our many problems, we had no excuse for what we did. Though Purity doesn't mean we have to be perfect, it does mean that we are suppose to be a race of standerds. I represent the entire pony race by saying, we're sorry for everything inflicted on the Gargoyles....."
  • Segnal: "...... Actselly, it's the Gargoyles that need to be sorry about this. We're the ones who desided to come in on a bad time and were basicly telling you guys to amscray over something we didn't had proof existed. I mean, alchourse you were gonna get mad, we didn't acted very neightberly. I mean, would you trust something that looks like a monster saying wild stories in trying to convince ya to leave an awesome piece of land? No! You'd assumed the asshole wants it for himself! And now thanks to us being spoilsports about something that was purely our own fucking fault, we commited alot of unredeemable shit to you guys and we ended up trusting a total psycopath that's now gonna lead us on the path of extinction when Gaia Everfree wakes up! The Gargoyle race, is screwed!?"
  • Breathflame:...Unless you can find a suitable land out there where you CAN thrive.
  • Segnal: You s******' me? I'm pretty sure there's nowhere else for us to make a decent living! If you think there's a good place for us to live, then I'd like to hear it.
  • Spitfire:... Actually, I think I know a decent one. Father, do you think the Badlands will be a tolerable place for them to live?
  • Breathflame: "Unfortunately, while it has alot of perches, it's skys are too hostile due to the skull-vultures and-"
  • Segnal: "WHOA WHOA WHOA WAIT!? Skull-Vultures? Those creatures are still around? Why did you think that's bad? We used to tame those things like you guys tame chickens for eggs! They're actselly real freaken chickens if ya know what to say to them."
  • Breathflame: "Well, there's also the matter of the fact the Badlands is also usually an exsile land and that it's infested with Landscape Crabs. They're having a massive over-population issue as of late as Equestia is beginning to have a problem with Landscape Crabs coming over to Equestia."
  • Segnal: "Ah, no sweat. We gargoyles are fighters by nature, so the douchebags of the other mythics will respect and fear us without having to do anything to them from street cred alone. Also, about the Landscape crabs, (laughs abit). You guys are scared of those things? Those over-grown horseshoes are assently crab-themed cows, and good eating too! How do you guys not know that?"
  • Soaren: "..... Ponies are vegitarians."
  • Segnal: "...... Oh. Right. Your plant eaters. Makes sense. Well, I'm glad we resolved some bad blood here, but there's little we can do about Man-Vulture without George, where even then he got his ass handed to him! Even with those misfits, there's little we can do to handle Man-Vulture's smarts! He'll have us trapped to a corner before we can do anything!"
  • Spitfire:... Well... Perhaps there's ONE other tough opponent who can help us.
  • Segnal:... You mean Acidburn? You kidding? Knowing ol Manny, he'll-
  • Breathflame: Have his memory erased, and essentially ruin a relationship?
  • Segnal:... Tell me that didn't happen!
  • Spitfire: Yep. It happened. Now we can't reason with Acidburn back at the Prison, and we can't find Lightning anywhere!...Perhaps...you could help us find Lightning and talk a little sense into her? That is, if you can?
  • Segnal: If it'll get us out of this bulls*** of a misunderstood mess, then let's go! (They flew off)

Meanwhile...

  • Lightning: (She was seen near the Coliseum crying on the ground)...I...I can't believe he's gone! I finally have somepony whom I can understand...and yet...(Continues crying)
  • ???: Are you sure you know where you're going?
  • ???: Lady, gargoyles are good smellers. We're like walking dogs. We can smell ponies even when they get off the freakin' ground. Now come on, let's go, let's go, let's go!
  • Lightning: (Gasps) GARGOYLES! (Hides)
  • Segnal: (They arrive)...Come on out, little lady! I got your silly commandrix here to talk some damn sense into ya!
  • Spitfire: You know, if you're gonna do this, you need to lay low with the language.
  • Segnal: Well, excuuuuuuuuse me!
  • Lightning: (Comes out) Uh, Commander Spitfire, why is that Gargoyle with you? I mean, I assume you managed on talking him out of hating us, but, I just thought he was one of the more, unchangable ones.
  • Segnal: "Well surprise, I'm not that hard to talk to, Dusty! Fact of the matter is, we have a commen problem with Man-Vulture! He kidnapped your friends, messed with yout relationship, and he turned my fellow Gargoyles against me! That dick owes us both a butt-whooping on him!"
  • Lightning Dust: "What am I suppose to do? Acidburn was the only one who knew the Goyland Caves, well, barring from you, and the only one who had a better understanding of what Mandreious is doing.... To, an extent. He doesn't even remember me. I have nothing to bring that back. And the only ones who did, were captured."
  • Segnal:...Wow, you suck! (Spitfire nudged him) Sorry. What I meant to say is, that's exactly what Manny wants out of you. He knows how sensitive you are, and by taking away Acidburn, he's basically sayin' "Hey, bitch, I know what makes you a weakling, so I'm gonna take away your man, and pierce your damn heart like a knife! That oughtta teach you not to mess with me!". The dude thinks you won't touch him by breakin' your heart.
  • Lightning:...That...SON OF A BITCH!!
  • Segnal: Yeah, so drink it in, pal! That's how gullibility tastes! Now what say we get your hunk of stallion back and see how long it takes to beat Bird-man to death?
  • Spitfire: WHOA, Segnal, I thought we agreed to not be THAT violent!
  • Segnal: You kidding? This bat was meant for serious hits! There's like, no freakin' way I can use it without causing an injury or death! Believe me, I tried. It's f*****' impossible.
  • Breathflame: Then don't use it!
  • Segnal: HAH! Dream on, chuckle-head. This thing is my best friend! There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me, it's useless, and without it, I am useless!...(Sighs) I think Jibb is starting to rub off on me.
  • Spitfire:...(Sighs) What are we gonna do with you?
  • Segnal: Uh, we got a job to do, so stop your worrying about my fightin' methods. This little lady needs to get her poor hunk back, and we BOTH need to get the payback we deserve!
  • Lightning:...I hate to say it, but... For a Gargoyle who is violent-happy... You're not that bad.
  • Segnal: (Chuckles) Yeah, I know! And it's not even one of my better quilities.
  • Lightning Dust: "..... But I don't know how to jog his memory."
  • Surprise: "I think the best way to get any guy to remember, is true love's first kiss."
  • Lightning Dust: "Kisses are not as magical as fairy tales make them out to be. If I just do that to Acidburn, he'll freak out and think I'm some kind of pervy bitch."
  • Segnal: "Well, maybe take him to a triggering event that might restore things."
  • Lightning: I don't see how he's going to come with me so easily. He's probably feeling so sorry for what he did, he wants to stay in that cell for as long as time turns.
  • Segnal: HAH! That's real funny, Dusty! I bet Acidburn is going to remember you if he even took a closer look at your face. I bet the only reason he left you was because he didn't look you dead in your pretty little eyes and see the raw emotion. An emotion like that, as far as I'm concerned, is so damn strong, it couldn't be wiped out.
  • Lightning:... I guess... That could work.
  • Segnal: You do that, and he's BOUND to let you take him where you want him to. Hell, I bet you don't even NEED to take him anywhere. You show him your raw emotion and how much you miss him, something comes up in the noggin, and I bet that little kiss thing MIGHT work!
  • Lightning Dust:...  Another good point.
  • Surprise: See? I told you it could work.
  • Segnal: So, whaddiya' say?
  • Lightning:... Let's do it!
  • Spitfire:... I must say, I'm impressed.
  • Segnal: See? Was that so hard for the little horse?
  • Lightning: Pony!
  • Segnal: Whatever. (They flew off)

Wonderbolt Maximum Security Prison

  • Warden Pony: (Acidburn was seen in his cell until he opened it)... Hey, dude. You got a visitor.
  • Acidburn: A visitor? Who? (Lightning came)... You? Wha... What're you doing here?
  • Lightning: Listen, Acidburn... You need to know who I really am.
  • Acidburn:... Uh... Who are you?
  • Lightning:... Lightning Dust. Don't you remember? The pony you fell in love with?
  • Acidburn: Never seen you before in my life.
  • Lightning: Acid, I know you're still in there. I... I can prove that your place is not here in this prison. There's so much more for you out there. I can show you. If you could just come with me.
  • Acidburn:... (Sighs) I wish I could. But not only am I a bit iffy to strangers I barely know, but I don't think anypony will forgive me after what I did.
  • Lightning: Are you kidding? Everypony here has been trying to talk to you about me. You need to snap out of it. I know there's an ounce of the pony I fell in love with in there. So... If you're there... Can you... Try to remember? Or at least... Give me a chance?
  • Acidburn:... I think you need to leave. You're... Really starting to creep me out.
  • Lightning: But-
  • Acidburn: Please... Just go!
  • Lightning:... I... (She softly sheds tears which she wipes away, trying to fight the urge)...I...But I love you!
  • Acidburn: I'm really flattered in all, but I'm a criminal. Nopony will accept me. So please leave.
  • Lightning:... (Softly sobs)... I... I can't believe it!...(Cries and walks away)...
  • Acidburn:... (Slowly starts to feel awful)... I... Why does that... Emotion... Feel familiar?...
  • Lightning:... (Was surprised at that)... What did you say?
  • Acidburn: I, uh, nothing! It's just... It felt like... Deja vu!
  • Lightning:... Why do you think that's the case?
  • Acidburn: "I, can't say for the life of me..... Maybe, have a chat with me to see if it rings any bells."
  • Lightning:...I have a better idea. Come with me.

Later, at the park...

  • Acidburn:...This...this is the park I used to play in when they still had that jungle gym.
  • Lightning: Exactly. We went here together.
  • Acidburn:...When we were fillies? I don't remember that.
  • Lightning: No, no, no, I meant recently. We spent our time here, and this is...(Sighs)...where you lost your memory.
  • Acidburn:...I don't know what you're talking about.
  • Lightning: Remember when we talked about taking some kids here? I liked those tubes just as much as you did.
  • Acidburn:...I don't think we have that much in common besides that. I mean, it's like a boy and girl making out after they both get buckets of food.
  • Segnal: (Seeing this from above) Hmmph! Well, screw you too, asshole!
  • Acidburn: It's just a child's memory, it's not all that interesting. I mean, what else do we have in common?
  • Lightning:...We both felt awful about things that were out of our control.
  • Acidburn:...Really?
  • Lightning: I mean, think about it. You lost your confidence in your teammates, and inevitably turned your own father and sister against you. But with me...it's another story. You see...I had a friend who I cared for and put my trust in. Daisy Beds. We both became close friends. I cared about Daisy Beds as she was, at first, excited to see a descendant of the Dust Clan, and wanted to learn from me on how to fly. She started out being raised on the ground, and couldn't fly. But when I came...all that changed. At first, she started out rusty. But as the years passed, she got better. But then...when she got into the Wonderbolt Academy...she died of Pterolio.
  • Acidburn:...I...that's...that's awful!
  • Lightning: And ever since, I couldn't do well in carrying on my family legacy. I've grown EXTREMELY sensitive about my past with Daisy Beds, just as much as you are right now about you and your past. We're both not perfect, but we can be the best of our ability.
  • Acidburn:...I...I had no idea!...You're really a nice pony. And here I thought you were just some pervert who was obsessed with me.
  • Lightning: And you're not bad yourself. I know that because you meant something to me. When I first met you, I liked you for your looks. But after a while...and after how I learned about your past...I saw some potential in you. Maybe Judge Haze was in the right for keeping your memories in tact. Maybe that incident where you escaped and leaked the Wonderbolt HQ's locations was just...a coincidence.
  • Acidburn:...Maybe...but I don't remember even breaking out at all!
  • Lightning: And why is that?
  • Acidburn: I don't know, okay? Maybe I hit my head on a rock not watching where I was flying or something. I don't know.
  • Lightning:...You know what? Screw this! (Kisses Acidburn as all the scenes of them together were seen in the background as the two stayed lip-locked for 10 seconds)...
  • Acidburn:...Lightning!...(The two hugged)
  • Lightning: Oh, thank Celestia you're back!
  • Acidburn:...How did you know that would work?
  • Lightning: I didn't. Thought you would call me a pervert and run away....(The two laughed)....
  • Acidburn: "...... But WOW is Equestia in a real pickle now!"
  • Lightning: Yeah, but we can fix it. We're taking this battle to Man-Vulture.
  • Acidburn:...But what about the Gargoyles?
  • Lightning: We already have a solution for that. We found a place in Equestria where they can thrive. The Badlands.
  • Acidburn:...Really?...That DOES seem like a good place.
  • Lightning: Yeah. Now let's get moving. (The two flew off with the Wonderbolts and Segnal)

Back at the park.

  • George's body was seen perfectly restored, injury and disfiguring completely absint.
  • Trixie: "Ok, he's healed and revived. Why is he still out?"
  • Merlin: "Samantha insisted as Magilo Reserections are not as quick as reserections here. The soul needs to be re-established back into the body and the organs need to start up after almost ending up dead."
  • Icky: "Well that and he's so freaking big! Even something like Magilo would end up taking awhile to restore this big lummox back to full form."
  • Luna: "Aren't you alittle harsh to refer to George like that?"
  • Icky: "Hey, if the guy desides that trusting a complete mutanted stranger was a hot idea, he doesn't deserve to be called smart. As far as I'm aware, he's also a crappy leader for not standing up to peer pressure. Sometimes a good leader has to understand that you can't make everyone happy. And he wasn't being a good leader submitting to warmongers."
  • Lord Shen: Can you blame him for having little options on how to deal with a misguided problem? While it's understandable why they were doing this, they kinda didn't have that many options available.
  • Merlin: Let us just get George somewhere safe.
  • Gilda: What about the blade-handed son of a bitch?
  • Merlin: "It's best not to release him too soon. We may have to wait after George recovers so we can have someone to keep the bumbler in line."
  • Gilda: Eh, fair enough. Let's load them in the van. (They did that and they blasted off)

Goyland Caves Entrance

  • Lightning: (She and her group appeared at the entrance of the caves)...So, THESE are the Goyland Caves, huh?
  • Acidburn: Yeah. They chose this place because it was one of the last habitable places that they could tolerate.
  • Segnal: Yeah. We like caves since we're basically bat-people. Let me tell ya', though, the inside is more than you think. Me, my team, and King Georgy weren't the only surviving Gargoyles. There's entire walls that can support up to a hundred of them. Trust me, It's not good idea to rush in there, because our subjects can pack a punch when they see their most hated race. Plus, with good noses, they'll probably see us comin' before we even get in there.
  • Acidburn:... Then we need a diversion.
  • Segnal:... Actually... I have a better idea. What if you guys posed as my prisoners after remembering each other?
  • Acidburn:... Are you sure that will work after your little tirade against your own team?
  • Segnal: I'll just say I was acting as a spy for them after saying I've thought straight. You won't be assaulted violently by the Gargoyles there, we'll sneak right where we wanna go without problem, and we'll jump and take them by surprise. It'll be as easy as pie!
  • ???: (Clears throat) I think not! (Spinok appeared behind them from invisibility)
  • Segnal: D'OH, I FORGOT ABOUT SPINOK AND HIS FREAKIN' SNEAKINESS!!!
  • Spinok: Well, well, Segnal, it appears you have betrayed us all!...You disgust me!
  • Segnal: Uh, look, Spinok, I can explain!
  • Spinok: Really? Why not explain it to THEM? (Hundreds of gargoyles appeared behind them)
  • Spitfire:... (Sighs) Well, so much for doing this quietly! (They were all knocked out)

Later...

  • Lightning: (They all woke up and they were met with Segnal's entire team and Man-Vulture)...YAAH!!
  • Segnal: OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!! YOU FREAKING CHEATERS!!!
  • Tecmeck: Yeesh, if I had a nickel for every goddurn time people branded strategic moves as cheats as if this was a durn rodeo, I'd be the richest gargoyle in the cave.
  • Segnal: GUYS, LOOK, I DID THIS FOR A REASON! There's a place in Equestria where we can live!
  • Man-Vulture: This is no longer about the land anymore! This is about making the universes a better place!
  • Lightning: Gargoyles, you don't have to do this! The Badlands of Equestria are good enough to support your race.
  • Elfwork: "But that's a banishment land. And some of us don't feel comfertable being among the rouges of other mythic beings and creatures, plentiful Landscape Crabs and Skull-Vultures aside."
  • Narbol: "On top of that, we came too far to quit now. It's now or never, cause Gaia awakes soon and will be end of us in hindsight of those pools. It be too dangerious to turn back now."
  • Man-Vulture: Alright, everyone, settle down! It seems that wiping your memory wasn't enough.I suppose the next best opition is to hold them up like with the creatures and Wonderbolt Delta. The always perfect stragity is to keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
  • Lightning: I'M AFRAID YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR ALREADY!! YOU'VE PROVEN TO BE MORE OF A MONSTER THAN ANY OF THESE GARGOYLES EVER WERE! YOU DESTROYED MY RELATIONSHIP WITH ACIDBURN! We're at least lucky that relationships can be restored no matter how powerful a memory-wipe is used.
  • Man-Vulture: Yes, thank you for reminding me of how it was a waste of time! Now, I will promise that you all will be kept fed and clean for the duration of your stay. Now I acknowledge that none of you will be happy of the arrangement, but just be glad I desided against killing you all out of being respectful of the fact that ponies raised me.
  • Segnal: "Then why am I being spared?!"
  • Man-Vulture: "Pity. Besides, I think two is enough of a Gargoyle loss. Let's not go for thrice. Now take them to the- (Suddenly, a tremor was heard which knocked everyone off their feet)... WHAT THE DEUCE?!?"
  • ???: SHELL LODGE SQUAD TO THE MOTHERF****** RESCUUUUUEEE!!!
  • Man-Vulture: IMPOSSIBLE?!? HOW DID THEY FIND US?!? (He was suddenly zapped in the back with a tiny laser) YAAHH!! (The SpyBug was seen)
  • Icky: (On SpyBug) WE WERE ALWAYS WATCHING, FREAKAZOID!! (Laughs)
  • Man-Vulture: (Growls, and fails to crush the SpyBug as it flew away) EVACUATE THE PRISONERS!!! AND NOT JUST THE RECENT ONES, BUT TEAM DELTA AND THE CREATURES AS WELL!? PREPARE DEFENSIVE PROCEEDSURES!? AND BEGIN THE PROGRESS OF PURIFICATION NOW!? SPINOK, YOUR WITH ME, THE REST OF YOU, DO WHAT YOU CAN TO KEEP THE PLAN ALIVE!?

Chapter 4: Attack on Goyland Caves/An Epic Foxfight Battle Erupts

Outside.

  • The Main Gargoyles and the rest of the Gargoyles, Native and Non-Native, advanced out!
  • Narbol: "INCOMIIIIIIIIIIIIING!?"
  • Elfwork: "OCTOBER FEST!?"
  • Elder Mokoma: "LET'S DO IT!?"
  • Tecmeck: "GUN'IM UP!? YEEEEE-HOOOO!?"
  • Iago: (The Gargoyles approached the Lodgers and their allies)...(Laughs) REALLY?!? We have to deal with Team Fortress 2 ripoffs?
  • Po: Oh, puh-lease, we've played that game LOADS of times, even when Kowalski convinced Valve to give him permission to refashion it to his Pixi-Console. MAN, that's just as good as doing it with a controller.
  • Kowalski: And unlike other cartoon virtual reality, losing all your lives on the Pixi Console doesn't kill you permanently.
  • Skipper: Thank God!
  • Sandy: Well, you know what I say to you two? I say, WHEN YOU MEET YER' MAKER, MAKE SURE TO BRING 'EM SOME BALLS NEXT TIME! (Laughs in similar fashion to the Engineer)
  • Tecmeck:...You just ain't doin' it right!
  • Sandy: Coming from a goddurn' ripoff of a kickass character. I bet the Engineer knows a Texan accent better than you or me! Now why don't you shut your trap and come get your whippin'?
  • Narbol: Oh, we'll show you how powerful we are, little squirrely! GET BEHIND ME, DOCTOR!
  • Elfwork: (Gets behind him and charges his hands)
  • Squidward:...Puh-LEASE tell me they're not gonna-
  • Narbol: NOW, DOCTOR! (Elfwork casts a spell that turns Narbol red) YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!! (He starts up his gun)
  • Squidward: WHOA MY, HE IS!!!
  • Skipper: EVASIVE!!!! (They ducked out of the way of the minigun fire)
  • Sandy: (Still imitating the Engineer) YOU'RE DUMBER THAN A BOX OF ROCKS!
  • Tecmeck: DON'TCHOU MOCK ME, GIRL!!! (Takes out a Sentry Gun that was unlike the one the Engineer possessed as it has an alternate design)
  • Sandy: YIPE! (Ducks as the Sentries missed)...Dad gum!
  • Skipper: Relax. If these guys really ARE ripoffs of Team Fortress 2, AND Kowalski revamped the game to the Pixi Console, then we're sure to know these bastards' weaknesses. Kowalski, analysis!
  • Kowalski: (On keyboard) Well, Elfwork should be the source of Narbol's invincibility, so I recommend we take him out.
  • SpongeBob: I'm not sure if Tecmeck's Sentries will make that easy for us.
  • Kowalski: Relax. I have a way. (Takes out some familiar devices)
  • Skipper:...Where the f*** did you get those?
  • Kowalski: I reverse-engineered them after studying them in the virtual TF2 world.
  • SpongeBob: Wow, Kowalski! You ALWAYS manage to pull this stuff out of your butt.
  • Kowalski: I know. (He leaped up and fired the zappers that disabled the sentries)
  • Tecmeck: ZAPPERS?! SENTRIES DOWN- (He was kicked to a wall by Shifu)
  • Sandy: (Imitating Engineer) A real Texan would've dodged THAT!
  • Elfwork:... Oh, snap! I REQUIRE ASSIST- (Trixie freeze-blasts him)
  • Narbol: (His invincibility wears off)... OH NOOOOOOOOO! (His minigun runs out of ammo)... Ohh, this is bad! Very very bad!
  • Max: (Sam puts a helmet on him and throws him at Narbol) WheeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! (He hits Narbol in the chest)
  • Narbol: OOOOOOOOHHHHHH!!! RIGHT IN THE CAULDRON!! (Falls down)
  • Pyro: GRRRRRRRRRRRGGHH!!! (Blasts intense amounts of fire from his hands)
  • Mr. Krabs: (He is blasted by the fire as he bounces across the walls for a while) OOH, ME PANTS ARE ON FIRE! (Runs then appears in his underwear) ME UNDERWEAR'S ON FIRE! (Runs then appears blazing and naked) I'M ON FIRE!!! (He jumps into water)... Ohh, yeah!
  • Mokona: (Takes out a barrel of TNT) Let's see ya' handle THIS! (Lights the barrel and rolls it down as they all dodged)... THERE'S PLENTY MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM! (Reveals a whole stock pile of TNT barrels)... I'm goin' ta blast ya into thin gruel!
  • Lord Shen:... Oh, I don't think so! (He uses his cannon to blast the entire stockpile as it makes a huge explosion that everyone recovered from)...
  • Mokona:... Ya' bleedin' idiots! You could've blown this place to Tartarus!
  • Lord Shen: Well, I had to get rid of them somehow!
  • Tecmeck: HEY, BOYS! GOTTA DISPENSER HERE! (The team quickly replenished)
  • Sandy: PFFT, I could build a better one than that!
  • Tecmeck: You know, you'd best shut that pretty buck-toothed mouth of yours before you get hurt, girl! (They continued to fight as Half-Face was seen from a high elevation readying to use his crossbow)
  • Half-Face: I'm gonna blow the inside of ya heads all over four counties! (Chuckles)
  • ???: G'day, mate! (Sparx, Spyro, and Cynder appeared behind him)
  • Half-Face:... Ahhh, PISS! (He was knocked out of the air by a powerful blast)
  • Po: THANKS FOR THAT UP THERE, GUYS! THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE!
  • Half-Face: (Recovers) You big-head wankers! (Aims his crossbow and fires as they dodged, and he few up as he continued firing at them and they continued to dodge)
  • Sparx: (Flies up to him) Yeah, that's enough of THAT! (Punches him in the nose) (As they continued fighting, some of the group managed to sneak away from the fight and head out)

Cave.

  • Gargoyle troops are seen leading the prisoners away from the area.
  • Gargoyle #1: Oh, we're so dead! We're so dead, we're so dead, we're so dead, we're so screwwwed!
  • Gargoyle #2: Get a hold of yourself! Those elites are distracting those do-gooders. This is a good enough shortcut to transport these prisoners. Trust me, we're gonna get through this.
  • Gargoyle #3: But...where're we gonna go?
  • Gargoyle #2: I don't know yet. We just need to get the hell out of here before anybody knows we got out.
  • Gargoyle #1: But what if they split up and find us?
  • Gargoyle #2: Relax. We're almost there! (They almost reached the exit until they were cornered by Insectasaurus, who roared loudly at them)
  • Delta Wonderbolt #1: Ohhhhh-ho-ho-hoooo, you're gonna get it now!
  • Gargoyle #2: EVERYONE, DRAW YOUR WEAPONS!
  • Gloria: Honey, you'd be wise not to! (The Lodgers aimed what they got at them)...Let them go!
  • Gargoyle #2:...S***!

Back at the Gargoyle Fight

  • Sandy: (She was seen playing a guitar at a safe location as the fight ensued)...
  • Lord Shen: Miss Cheeks, is this REALLY the time to continue satirizing and mocking? You could get shot!
  • Sandy: Not when you end up hacking one of Tecmeck's Sentries to protect you. (That was actually seen as a blast was seen with Sandy smiling)
  • ???: (Famous SpongeBob background line) MY LEEGGG! (She continues playing as a Gargoyle tooth was seen)
  • Boss Wolf:...I'm actually starting to agree, you're taking this mockery thing WAY too seriously.
  • Sandy: So what if I am? It's too easy and FAR too irresistible. Besides, it ain't hurtin' me much. But it might hurt you! (Points out another Sentry set by Tecmeck as they all dodged, and Sandy's Sentry fires missiles that destroy it)... YOU'D BEST HOPE THIS OLD SOUVENIR I GOT IS NOT POINTED AT YOU, BOY!
  • Tecmeck: Stop it, already! (The Sentry takes out the rest of the Gargoyles, not killing them, but disabling and/or knocking them out) DANG NABBIT- (GETS KNOCKED OUT TWO) OH?!
  • Sandy:... (Still imitating Engineer) Well, I reckon that's that!
  • The Gargoyle soldiers began to lose their nerves!
  • Gargoyle Soldier commander: "The-, there's, THERE'S MORE WHEN THAT CAME FROM!?"
  • All sentries pointed at the remaining Gargoyles.....
  • Gargoyle Soldier Commander: "...... It's, not too late to say "we surrender", is it?"
  • Sandy: Take all the time you need in the next 5 seconds. 1, 2, skip a few, 5-
  • Gargoyle Soldier Commander: WE SURRENDER, WE SURRENDER LIKE BABIEEE-HEEE-HEE-HEE-HEEEES!!!
  • Sandy: Wise decision.
  • Gargoyle #1: What're you gonna do with us?!?
  • Icky: "Since ya gave up, Jackshit. Because it ain't proper to beat down people who gave up."
  • Trixie: "We will however, make sure you are kept from changing your minds on us the minute our backs are turned!"
  • Trixie summoned forth an unbreakable rope that entangles the entire Gargoyle forces.

Cave Center.

  • Starlight was strapped into the powershorce container of the machine, were at the top, the Main 6 were strapped onto the top of a raygun's tip, pointing to the hole in the cave to the sky.
  • Man-Vulture was seen setting up the calaberation while Spinok stood by next to him.
  • Man-Vulture: "Soon, my purifacation machine, powered by the element barers and a powerful unicorn, with help of the magic pools, the universe will be purifived! I will make the universes a better place!? Then once I purify these UUniverses, I'll go out of my way to purify that Alternate UUniverses, then I will seek out who knows how many other universes, and purify them too?! Why limit myself to just one united universes, when there is evidence of many existing others?"
  • Spinok: "But allchourse. But let's stick to what we can do first at the moment before we get too dangeriously ambitious. And alchourse we have to contend with the heroes first."
  • Man-Vulture: "I know, Spinok. Are the prisoners evacuated, along with the creatures?"
  • ???: "Ask us!?"
  • Lightning Dust and Acidburn charged in, backed-up by the creatures!
  • Spinok: "WHAT?! IMPOSSABLE?! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN!?"
  • Man-Vulture: "Hmm, an unfortunate circumstance, but you two and the pool guardians are too late. (Presses a button)."
  • Computer: "Countdown to Universe Purification to proceed in 10 minutes."
  • Man-Vulture: "It's likely defeating a master of stealth Gargoyle and a suprime mutanted griffin genius would take double the time on the time limit. Even if you defeat us, the universes will be purifived! I will win either way!"
  • Lightning Dust: "Whatever happened to not underestimating your oppenents, Mandreious? Me and Acid are fast flyers! AND we got the pool's pissed off protecters with us!"
  • Man-Vulture: "I am not unestimating your abilities, nor being too confident in my own. I am just saying that you might not be able to defeat me and Spinok in time. And even if you gotten past us in time, the machine will only reckindised my hands only. It will not accept the commands of an outsider. And it has the strongest metals of both our and the Alternate UUniverses such as titanium and the AUU neutronium! So simply brutishly destroying it is not a viable opition either! The Purification, will never be stopped!?"
  • ???: Oh, sure, a few enemies won't stop it in time. (The Lodgers appeared)
  • Lord Shen: But what do you say when you face an entire army of heroes?
  • Man-Vulture: It STILL won't make a difference. The indestructibility, the ability to respond only to me, and especially for it's defenses. Tecmeck was not f****** around when he installed motion-sensing cannons on this thing. It's not going to go down that easily.
  • Spyro: We'll see about that.
  • Man-Vulture: No, we won't! You're fighting a losing battle. Just give up.
  • Sparx: Hey, pal, I think you're forgetting one simple thing! That thing won't work unless it has a power source. Which is kidnapped ponies!
  • Cynder: And if you're going to purify ANY dimension you find, that means you'll have to kidnap an ENTIRE POPULATION OF PONIES in order to get the power. You'll drain the purity of them until there's none left. This is not going to be a flawless plan.
  • Man-Vulture: Oh, you couldn't be more mistaken. Pony purity is a powerful force that even a single pony's purity can power this device for a century. You think I'M underestimating you guys? YOU'RE clearly underestimating your pony allies' purity capacity. The power will surely get the job done for millennia.
  • Acidburn: It's still going to endanger us, which is precisely why we must stop you!
  • Man-Vulture: You are welcome to try! It's going to outwit everything you've got.
  • Merlin: Oh, really? (Casts a spell, but it is protected by a shield)...What?
  • Man-Vulture: I didn't forget about magic because, DUH, we're surrounded by it. It's got a quantum shielding that restricts ANY magic from being used to defeat it. Plus, it's programmed to accelerate if magic is used against it. (The 10 minutes changes to 8 minutes)
  • Iago: Okay, THAT'S just not fair!
  • Man-Vulture: Quite. Like I said, you're fighting a losing battle.
  • Spyro:...DOESN'T ANYONE HAVE ANY BRIGHT IDEAS?!?
  • Merlin: It's clear what we need to do! We need to stop the source, which is freeing the pony hostages powering it.
  • Man-Vulture: Good luck with that. The cannons are motion and audio sensing.
  • Icky: Uh, pal, we have destroyed turrets and cannons countless times, so how should THIS be any different?
  • Man-Vulture: They can sense when they are in danger of being destroyed, like, right now. (The cannons opened fire as the heroes dodged and took cover)...Spinok? Would you take care of them?
  • Spinok: My pleasure! (Disappears)
  • Mantis: Well, great! Once again, magic is not a factor.
  • Merlin: Hey, magic is not supposed to solve EVERYTHING, you know. Solving problems with a quick spell would be too obvious for the plot.
  • Icky: You're just saying that because MSM wants to restrict magic again.
  • Merlin: Hey, he has good reasons.
  • Shifu: We don't need magic, anyway. All we have to do is find a way to free the ponies before the device fires.
  • Kowalski: Let's just use the zappers again! (Throws them, but the cannons destroy them before they can be used)...Dang it!
  • Private: WHAT'LL WE DO?!?
  • Icky: Merlin, can't you just mind-control Man-Vulture into deactivating the machine?
  • Merlin: We've already established that magic won't work. If I were to do that, the machine would pick up the magic source, and take another 2 minutes away from the timer. We ONLY have to destroy the cannons and free the ponies that are powering the machine.
  • Tulio: And how are we gonna do that when those guns are too quick to be destroyed?
  • Sandy: THINK! Who do we know who can absorb blows as if he was made out of a rubbery material?
  • SpongeBob:...Me?
  • Sandy: Nah, you'd be torn to shreds by bullets. Who ELSE?
  • B.O.B:...OHHHHHH, ME!
  • Sandy: Exactly! All we have to do is use a powerful weapon while shielding it off with B.O.B.
  • B.O.B:...Are you sure bullets can't harm me?
  • Sandy: Have bullets ever harmed you during your creation from a simple tomato? I'm sure you wet on a Blob-like rampage.
  • B.O.B:...Hmm...good point.
  • Lord Shen: Sounds good enough to me. (Takes out his cannon)
  • Sandy: Now, remember to take it out of cover at the appropriate moment!
  • ???: I'm afraid that will not happen! (Spinok reappears and pushes the cannon out of cover as it is destroyed by the cannons)
  • B.O.B: YOU BASTARD!!!
  • Spinok: Nothing personal, I just had to shut you up! (They dodged his knife attacks as they got out of cover, and they were all in range of the cannons as they fired, but Sandy quickly used B.O.B to shield them from the gunfire)
  • B.O.B: (Laughs) That kinda tickles!
  • Sam: Alright! On my signal...3...2...(He and Max take out rocket launchers and fire at the cannons, able to destroy the cannons as Spinok was held back by the Furious Five, and B.O.B was still defending them from the cannonfire)
  • Spinok: NO! (Disappears and tries to stab Sandy until Merlin magically made him visible and they all piled up on him and kicked his ass) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
  • Lightning: (The two flew for the trapped Mane Seven, but Man-Vulture knocked them both down)
  • Man-Vulture:... May I remind you that I still have the strength of a griffin?
  • Rainbow Dash:... LET... THEM... GO!!!! (She manages to break free of her restraints out of rage)
  • Computer: Warning! Energy capacity reduced.
  • Man-Vulture: WHAT THE FU- (Rainbow Dash punches him in the beak and causes him to let go of Lightning and Acidburn)
  • Rainbow Dash: YOU TWO! Free the others! I'll hold him off! (She continues to fight Man-Vulture)
  • Man-Vulture: NO! I HAVE GONE TO FAR TO ALLOW THIS! (Ignors Rainbow Dash and charges after Acidburn and Lightning freeing the others, but the Wonderbolts Alpha charged in from the hole and slam into him straight to the ground!)
  • BLAM!?
  • Man-Vulture: "GET OFF OF ME THIS MINUTE, YOU ACCURSED-"
  • Computer: "Power shorces compromised. Purification canceled."
  • Man-Vulture: "NOOOOOOO!?"
  • Man-Vulture smacks the Wonderbolts off!
  • Man-Vulture: "THE MAN-VULTURE WILL STRIKE AGAIN, MSIFITS?!"
  • Man-Vulture makes a break for it!
  • Spitfire: AFTER HIM! (The flying ponies, with the exception of Fluttershy, darted after him)
  • Man-Vulture: (Sees them attacking) URRGGHHH!!! YOU PONIES JUST DON'T KNOW WHEN TO QUIT!! (He back-hands Rainbow Dash and Spitfire, roars, and grabs Lightning, slamming her into a large rock)... PREPARE FOR A PARTICULARLY NASTY HEADACHE COME NEXT MORN!?
  • Acidburn: LET HER GO! (Man-Vulture grabs him with his foot-talon, and pins him to the ground!)
  • Twilight: (Fires a magic beam of energy that Man-Vulture shields with Lightning as she got cartooishly scorched)... Oops, sorry!
  • Lightning: Hey, I blame the- (Wheezes smoke)...The mutant griffin! Uhhgh! (Falls to the ground)
  • Man-Vulture: (Dodges all the magic blasts from Twilight until he punches her in the face)
  • Twilight:... OW! (He dodges attacks from Rainbow, Spitfire, and Soarin as they bumped into each other)
  • Man-Vulture: STAY THE F*** AWAY FROM ME!!!
  • Spitfire: After all that you did, you think we're going to let you get away with it? Ruining relationships is EXTREMELY frowned upon to us, and is punishable by- (Man-Vulture smacks her into a cliff-side)... OWCH!
  • Man-Vulture: I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE WITH YOU!!
  • Twilight: We are just trying to help! That serum is tainting you into something you're not! We need to fix that before it gets any worse.
  • Man-Vulture: I'M FINE THE WAY I AM! AND THERE'S NO POWER IN THE UNITED UNIVERSES THAT CAN CHANGE THAT?!
  • Rainbow Dash: Oh, I'm sure there are, pal! We're gonna make sure you stop this pointless nonsense no matter the cost!
  • Man-Vulture:...(Growls)...You know what? Let's see how you can do that WHEN I AM THE MOST POWERFUL MAGICAL BEING IN THE UUNIVERSES!!! (Flies deeper into the caves)
  • Spitfire:... Where's he going?
  • Twilight/Rainbow Dash:... THE MAGIC POOL!!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: DON'T LET HIM BATHE IN THAT STUFF!!! (They flew after him as they blocked his path) Look, ugly! The only way you'll get to that pool is if you get through us- (Man-Vulture plowed right through them as a bowling strike sound was heard)..... Why did I think telling him that was a bright idea?
  • Twilight:... WE HAVE TO STOP HIM!!! (Suddenly, a blast was heard in the cave as it knocked Man-Vulture back into the sky screaming)
  • Spyro:... You're lucky some of us have good hearing down here!
  • Man-Vulture: (Growls, and flies another direction)
  • Segnal:... OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD, HE'S GOING FOR THE SHORTCUT!!!
  • Shifu: WE MUST NOT LET HIM REACH THAT POOL! (They split up)

Meanwhile...

  • Man-Vulture: (He flies to another opening until Twilight blasted him in the face) DAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH- (He crashes into a rock formation)...(Comes out roaring) WILL YOU ALL JUST PISS OFF ALREADY?!? (Flies towards Twilight as she puts up a shield that he hits his head on) OOF!
  • Rainbow Dash: Give it up, Man-Vulture! You're not getting to that pool!
  • Man-Vulture: Wanna bet, Gaybo? (He darts through Twilight and tries to enter the cave, but he then gets held by the tail by Twilight's magic, and holds on with his talons)...LET...LET GO OF ME!!!
  • Twilight: WE SAID YOU'RE NOT GOING NEAR THAT POOL!
  • Man-Vulture: (Snarls viciously, lets go, and launches himself towards Twilight and punches her in the chest)
  • Twilight: (SCREAMS)... (She fell until Spitfire and Soarin caught her)...
  • Man-Vulture: Hmmph! (Flies in the opening)... WHAT THE- (A large green gaseous blast was seen coming from the cave, as well as vomiting sounds as Man-Vulture came out)...OH, GOD, IT SMELLS LIKE A SKUNK S*** OUT A ROTTEN CARCASS!!!! UGGGHHH!!! 
  • Shrek: (Came out and took a big whiff) OH, YEAH! I'm a living stink bomb! (The other Lodgers came out wearing gas-masks)
  • Mr. Krabs: (Notices Patrick wasn't wearing a gas mask) Uh, Patrick, why ain't you wearing a mask?
  • Patrick: Because I don't have a nose.
  • Mr. Krabs:... Oh.
  • Man-Vulture: YOU SICK PIG!! YOUR GROSS-OUTS WILL NOT STOP ME FOREVER!!!
  • Shrek: Uh, pal, this stink cloud is going to be here for a while. And trust me when I say the front entrance is still guarded. You'll never get through here without facing us and getting sick at the same time.
  • Man-Vulture:...WORTH IT! (Flies through the fart cloud as he vomits the whole way, and he ends up going through while fighting the heroes off, but then gets kicked out again, and hits the ground)...(He vomits for 20 whole seconds)...NOT WORTH IT!!
  • Man-Vulture flimsfully gets up, though weaken, still looks as if he still shows signs of fight in him.
  • Man-Vulture: "I'm guessing because of this rowdy determination of not letting me near that pool is because your afraid of unfathemable power within my mits?"
  • Twilight: "Actselly, we more concerned that the combined powers of all the magic of the universes might be too much for even your mutanted body and that it could lead to a magic flux with the destructive power of a super-nova, but yeah, that's concerning as well."
  • Man-Vulture: "I-..... (Stops to think about it.....) Huh...... I actselly forgot that could be a thing. Isn't anger such a forgotten memory device? Admitingly, good call on not letting me get to that, even though the fact that I also forgot that a cable is blocking the pool itself to serve as additional energy for the purifying machine, though only as a stableiser power and not a power SHORCE, which is why it can't do jacksqaut now. But still! There's still very little any of you having the power to reverse this?! And before you bring up the elements, well, that's what (Brings out a vial) THIS is for! Good thing I made myself a private sample of purity in a vial for such an occation."
  • Acidburn: "Wait, but didn't you say you weren't sure it wasn't gonna work? And didn't you say you never gotten to made it?"
  • Man-Vulture: "Correction, I haven't gotten to made MORE then this. And I still stand by that statement of my uncertainty of it's effectiveness! I just felt it wasn't originally gonna come to pass.... (Opens vial) But it appears it has. BEHOLD, THE MIRICALES OF DRINKABLE PONY PURITY TO SHEILD MYSELF FROM EVEN THE GREATEST POWERS OF THE ELEMENTS!? VERY AKIN TO THAT OF THE EX-COMMUNIST'S HYBRID DAUGHTER?! OBSERVE!?"
  • Man-Vulture prepares to actselly drink the vial!
  • ???: I wouldn't drink that if I were you! (Celestia and Luna appeared)
  • Man-Vulture:...CELESTIA?!?
  • Celestia: Manderous, I've analyzed the ingredients of that serum through my mind, and if you drink that, it's not going to just make you immune to the Elements. It's actually going to do things you're not going to like. That purity is based upon pure aura, the same aura which the magic mirror to the human world uses to change appearances to match world logic. If you drink that, then you're basically going to turn yourself into MORE of a freak than you are now.
  • Man-Vulture:...I don't believe you!
  • Luna: Trust me, Manderous, we've seen a vision of you drinking that thing. Not only will you succeed in being unstoppable, but...well...you're not going to appreciate yourself. I mean, isn't your deformity ta factor in what made you this way in the first place?
  • Man-Vulture: If it means I become unstoppable, then it's worth the damn risk!
  • Soothsayer: I fear that the two are correct. I'm sensing that that serum will make you into more of a freak than you are now. And I know you deep down that your greatest fear is to not be anymore of a freak.
  • Man-Vulture: AND HOW THE HELL WOULD YOU KNOW THAT, YOU OLD GOAT?!? I SAID IT'S WORTH THE RISK!
  • Celestia: You do know that some of us can read your mind, right? We're sensing that you're quite nervous after being told you'll become a freak. You'll NEVER drink that thing even if your life depended on it.
  • Man-Vulture: LIAR!! I DRINK THIS THING, AND I WILL BECOME UNSTOPPABLE TO YOUR PRECIOUS RAINBOW POWERS!!! YOU SAID IT YOURSELF!!
  • Soothsayer: But at what cost? You will not be mentally sound once you drink that thing. At first, the deformity will make you shocked, then it will make you regretful. Then, it will evolve into taking this pain out on everyone you meet. Then when you try and reverse it and only result in failure, you'll...well...(Crosses her throat)
  • Man-Vulture:...YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING!!! THIS WILL BE MY FINEST MOMENT, AND IT WILL FEEL SO GOOD! (Prepares to drink it as everyone looked with horror)...(He struggles)...(Sighs, and drops the serum)...No! I don't wanna be a worse freak!
  • Boss Wolf: See? You're scared that you'll find horror in your new looks. You'll only make yourself mentally scared.
  • Celestia: Not to mention that purity would've CURED that corrupt side of yours, and you'll see clearly that it wasn't such a good idea. You'll go through the whole freak thing all over again, only more harmful to others and yourself.
  • Man-Vulture:...DON'T YOU ALL DARE THINK THIS WILL CHANGE MY MIND! I WILL STILL-
  • Tigress: You'll sill what? What will there be left to do? You've been at this just to purify the UUniverses, so that makes you a quarter of a hero at best. You're gonna be in this for the sake of making the UUniverses a better place. What else can allow you to possibly accomplish that?
  • Man-Vulture:...I...I'LL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT!
  • Rainbow Dash: PFFFFFFFFFFT, come on, dude, it's not so simple!
  • Man-Vulture: "IS TOO?! I, I JUST NEED TO THINK OF IT, THAT'S ALL!?"
  • Icky: "Hey, ya have to admire the guy for persisence."
  • Man-Vulture: "I WILL FIND A WAY TO PURIFY THE UNIVERSES FOR AS LONG AS I REMAIN CONJUSTUS!? OR MY NAME IS-"
  • CLANG!?
  • Man-Vulture was seen with a huge bump to his head.
  • Man-Vulture: "..... Manfred."
  • Man-Vulture plops to the ground as it was seen that Segnal was holding an allumium bat.
  • Segnal: "..... Hey SOMEONE had to do it! Eventally this would've lead to him freaking out and attacking us."
  • Lord Shen: "Yes, these sort of conversations do end that way."
  • Icky: "Well, at least the poor demented pointdexter will go quietly."
  • Viper: "And getting the help he needs."

Outside the caves.

  • The still knocked out Man-Vulture was seen inside a strong green-glassed containtment device, while Gargoyles by the dozens are seen taken to caravans.
  • A still recovering George was seen watching as he was riddled with regret.
  • Electross was seen with a small gang of millaterry ponies talking with Celestia.
  • Electross: "And you'll have my word that this "Man-Vulture" will be cured from his current unpleasent form in Hayfield 64. Though Biology isn't my strong suit, I do have a mutantion reverseal machine that'll do the job just as much."
  • Celestia: "Thank you, Electross."
  • Electross turned and left.
  • Celestia looked at George and approuched him.
  • King George: "..... And all this, because I gave in to peer pressure...... It's obvious that I am a terrorable leader if I cave in so easily. Now in thanks to the Cancer Major, we're banished from our own banishment cave..... What is to become of the Gargoyles? Are we going to be banished to a worse location? Or will Gaia Everfeee contend with us cause of ever tampering with the magic pools?"
  • Celestia: Actually, in a way, we are banishing you. But this banishment site seems to be the only place in Equestria where you Gargoyles can thrive. The Badlands of Equestria.
  • King George:... You mean that area of Equestria south across Macintosh Hills?
  • Celestia: As suppose to the many other badlands we have?
  • King George: "..... Yes, I suppose that was a stupid question to ask."
  • Celestia: It's quite alright. But over all, it is that very one. There's already wildlife we were told you domesticated back in the early days. The Landscape Crabs and Skull Vultures are familiar with you, aren't they?
  • King George:... I suppose... It could be a satisfying land for us to thrive in. Very well, then, Princess. We shall accept. If this is a good enough apology your people can offer, than we will accommodate.
  • Celestia: That's good. We've gone unanswered with this problem for too long, so it's good that the ponies of Equestria will know there's no hard feelings.
  • King George: We may as well. The rest of Equestia did look vastly unsuitable for us anyway, so, I guess it was pointless to be stubbern about it at all. But, what is to become of that giant thing Mandreious made? I doubt it would be advisable to just leave it be.
  • Luna: "Whooves has defelupted a great interest in it. He plans to re-create it as a glorifived satalight dish for an upcoming exspeariment of introdusing Equestia to inter-universeal TV. But the real question is, what are you planning to do with the likes of Spinok and Jibb?"
  • King George: "You have my word that a great disaplene will be made to keep those two in line indiffently."

Later, into the Badlands.

  • Spinok and Jibb are seen in farmer outfits herding Landscape Crabs while collecting flocks of Skull Vultures.
  • Jibb: "No thanks to you, I lost my position as Elder!"
  • Spinok: "Ohh please, you imbacile! You did that by yourself with you inspited war-mongering! You gotten our people into needless poverty to begin with?!"
  • Jibb: "WELL YOU GOT US BANISHED INTO AN EXSILE LAND?!"
  • Spinok: "By all accounts, it's tecnecally not that bad. It is the closest we have of what Equestia used to be mostly like until pony colonisation! It's possable it was ineditable we end up here regaurdless of what happened! Your just looking for an outlet for your anger, you sham of a Gargoyle!"
  • Jibb: "Take that back frenchy, or I'll-"
  • Spinok: "Oh please, Mokoma took your sword hand and replaced it with a worthless unmoveable prostectic! Your barely even a threat to yourself!"
  • Jibb: "Why I oughta-"
  • Farts are heard!
  • Spinok: "UGH!? YOU SMELLY IDIOT!?"
  • Jibb: "Hey that wasn't me! It's obvious that it's the darn Landscape Crabs."
  • Spinok: "As if Crustations have an anus to work with!"
  • Spinok and Jibb argued as their arguement gets drowned out by farts.
  • The other Gargoyles were seen as they began to laugh!
  • Mokoma: "(Laughs)! That's gonna take forever to shower off!"
  • Elfwork: "P.U.!"
  • Segnal: "(Laughs)!"
  • Half-Face: "That'll show them right."
  • Tecmeck: "(Chuckles), I hope that snake in the grass and army boy can handle the stink, cause it's never gonna leave them for a long time."
  • The Gargoyles continued laughing!

Chapter 5: Shineflare's Case/Lightning's Progress Ensues

A Week later.

  • Lightning Dust was nerviously pacing by the door to the Map room.
  • Chow Mein: "Lighty, why are you so nervious?"
  • Lightning Dust: "Because I felt that I wasn't honest about knowing about Acidburn, and that I felt like I wasted their time on the Shineflare case.... Speaking of it, I never caught up, how did that go?"
  • Chow Mein: "Oh it was QUITE a gas! You should've seen it!"

Courtcase

  • Celestia:... Alright, Shineflare. You stand before this court because your actions as Headmaster of the Unicorn Council have gone a LITTLE too far, so by order of Princess Twilight Sparkle, this case must decide what to do with you now that you are no longer fit to be Headmaster.
  • Shineflare: (Shrugs) I swear to God, that pony!
  • Celestia: And we have gained a jury of non-pony peers, most of which were victims of Pred who killed them on your orders.
  • Shineflare: (A glass-shatter sound was heard as many non-ponies in the jury were seen burning mad)... Crap baskets!
  • Celestia: As well as a WHOLE ton of sympathizing ponies in another jury. (Ponies were mad at her)
  • Shineflare:... Oh, sure, get ponies and non-ponies who want to see me wiped off the face of Equestria! Way to go! All they'd wanna do is say guilty for everything without a fair verdict.
  • Pony #1: (Scoffs) Who the hell do you think we are, monsters? Do you HONESTLY think anypony in this courtroom would wanna do that to you?
  • Pony #2: I do!
  • Pony #1: Shut up!
  • Celestia: I can assure you, Shineflare, they are not going to be that way. If they were, I wouldn't have brought them into the jury. We're just going to decide your fate based upon their views.
  • Shineflare: And what makes you think they won't offer a sentence that I won't like?
  • Celestia: Anyone who persists on that will be escorted out of the courtroom.
  • Shineflare:... Almost assuring I guess.
  • Celestia: Now then, to start off, we have a few testimonies here with us today. The first is none other than Twilight Sparkle, the technical plaintiff.
  • Twilight: (Teleported in) Thank you, your highness. Now, we all agree that Shineflare needs to be given a sentence that will benefit all of us. We have decided what the fate would be beforehand, yet didn't have much time to think due to the Gargoyle Incident yesterday. Would anypony, or anyone, wish to offer suggestions that would work? (A dragon almost spoke out) KEEP IN MIND THAT WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY OUTRAGEOUS NON-THOUGHT OUT SENTENCES THAT WILL POSSIBLY RILE HER UP! (The dragon sits back down)... Look, we NEED to be fair with her fate. If we were to ruin her life in the kingdom completely, she'd end up doing something out of revenge that will endanger ANY in this courtroom. (Two dragons looked angrily at the dragon that was about to speak out)... So, we need to make sure her role in the Canterlot Government is not TOO changed. I only called this court case to eliminate any cruel things from happening to people like Garble and Vex. So we must comply to a completely unanimous verdict for all of us. Are we in agreement? (The two juries agreed)... Then let's get started. I shall make my first testimony. (Clears throat)... We must review WHY Shineflare is like this. She was a poor pony who was abused by Griffins as a slave. But when one griffin attempted sexual assault, Shineflare responded with murder as self-defense, and fled. Plus the added injury of a later tragity involing losing a loved one later down the road. Her political influence on the relations between ponies and non-ponies earned her a role as a Councilpony for the Unicorn Council until she moved to the utmost top as Headmistress. Now, most of us might believe that she gained the role of Headmistress because she blamed non-ponies for the mistreatment she felt as a filly. But the non-ponies in the room must comply to the pony philosophies and do our best to forgive her.
  • ???: YOU'LL BE SOOOOORRY!!!... (A dragon was the one who said it)... (He was immediately teleported out)...
  • Shineflare:... (Shrugs) I'm sacked! This feels like a three-ring circus then a trail.
  • Twilight: Look, everyone, let's not act childish! This is serious! We HAVE to do this because we need to give her a fair sentence. Now if anyone else here has anything else to say that is NOT appropriate, then I suggest you leave! (Everyone was silent)...Good! Now, back to my testimony. We need to understand that her past is something that WOULD leave the ponies in the room in the same destiny if they went through the same thing she did. Now it's time we helped her out to our very east. And it starts with a few other testimonies. And it starts with the new candidate for the Headmistress spot, Miss Twinkle Dust.
  • Shineflare: Oh, boy.
  • Twilight: (Twinkle Dust appeared in the testimony seat)... Miss Twinkle Dust, headmistress of Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns. You have wished to take Shineflare's place as Headmistress of the Unicorn Council.
  • Twinkle Dust: And it's about time, too! Ever since that incident where Garble and Vex were exiled, the School has been given a bad reputation not just for Celestia, but for non-ponies everywhere. It temporarily created a ban against giving dragon eggs to the school for use in entrance exams, and we at least had one or two preaches and attacks from dragons who yell that my students were horrible. But, when push comes to shove, it isn't fair to blame the students for being so cruel. It's SHINEFLARE's fault for declaring the democratic notion to a body that she KNEW was against them in the first place. She was being manipulative in the whole matter. (Shineflare softly chuckles nervously)...The CORRECT thing that needed to be done was to have a democratic notion of ALL the ponies of Canterlot, and not just the student body. Democracy isn't just about a bunch of students when it is done in a trial. It is to be done to an entire population. So when push comes to shove, it's truly Shineflare's fault.
  • Shineflare: OBJECTION!!
  • Celestia: Overruled. There is no excuse for leaving out the citizens who would agree that such an act would attract undue attention to Canterlot and even all of Equestria. Garble blamed ponies as a whole for what YOU did, and has been prejudicial against ponies, and almost came to an invasion on them after nearly becoming the Dragon Lord of the Wild Dragon Territories. By concentrating on the student body, KNOWING MOST OF THEM WERE AGAINST GARBLE, you ended up creating yet another dragon who had the potential to be yet ANOTHER Malevolent Flames. That would've had you kicked out anyway.
  • Shineflare: Oh, come on, he DIDN'T do a damn thing like that for years!
  • Twilight: Yet if it wasn't for my assistant Spike, he WOULD have. And may I remind you he is a part of Team Nefarious? Nefarious was probably WAITING to get an opportunity like that, and it could lead to more trouble.
  • Shineflare:...I...I...
  • Twilight: Well, Shineflare, looks like the whole jury can agree that your methods are not on the up-and-up.
  • Shineflare: OH, COME ON! I'M SURE THERE'S NOTHING ELSE I'VE DONE THAT LEAD TO A SIMILAR RISK!
  • Twilight: Oh, I beg to differ. Prosecution calls Discord to the stand.
  • Shineflare: Wait, didn't you say that he was on vaca-
  • Discord: (Teleported there) Present!
  • Shineflare:... (Sighs) I forgot whom I was talking about!
  • Twilight:... Convenient. Discord, is it true that YOU were a victim of Shineflare just as much as Garble was?
  • Discord: Yeah. Remember when she gained Galactic Federation legal actions involved against me and threatened prosecution against any who protected me? (The juries murmured)
  • Shineflare: NOW WAIT JUST A SECOND, I WAS JUST-
  • Discord: Up, second's up, let's move on!
  • Shineflare:... That's not very funny!
  • Discord: Plus, that wasn't the worst of it. She manipulated a Shell Lodger to cheat her way through the trial. (The juries murmured words like 'guilty' and 'death to her' and 'get her out of Canterlot') Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't manipulation of an interuniverseal hero team frowned upon by the High Council? If you ask me, I'd say the odds are not in her favor. She's NOT a good Headmistress to even MY kind. And WE DRACONEQUUI ARE SENSITIVE ABOUT THAT S***!
  • Shineflare:... (Chuckles nervously)... I, I, I, I had no idea. I mean, come on, Discord, can't you take a joke?
  • Twilight: So bribing AND manipulating the Lodge just to get your way was a joke this whole time?
  • Shineflare:... Yyyyyyes?
  • Dragon jurior: "BULLSHIT?!"
  • Discord: I don't know, that bribe sounded dead serious to me. How did it go again? (Transforms his head into a Shineflare-like head) We have the legal approval from the Galactic Federation to punish, prosecute, and publicly display Discord like a criminal as we please. It says so in THIS paper! (Gets Mr. Krabs head) Full rights given to Unicorn Council and Pred Judu Des, to punish Discord as they see fit, by- THE GRAND COUNCIL WOMAN VAINIANA?!? (Shineflare head again) Yes, that means, you alien misfits, and the gross favorers that are the Elements of Harmony bearers, or, WERE, the bearers, are legally FORBIDDEN TO INTERFERE!! Discord has committed a crime again Equestria by Galactic ruling, and now, he will be punished as the monster he is, and if you aliens and/or monster lovers DARE interfere, YOU'RE GOING TO PRISON 42 for aiding and abetting A VILLAIN LEAGUER!! (Squidward head) WHAT?!? (Po head) WHAT?!? (Furious Five Heads spontaneously) WHAT?!? (Shifu Head) WHAT?!? (Kaa Head) WHAT?!? (Shineflare Head) YOU HEARD RIGHT! NOW TURN OVER DISCORD TO US, NOW! (Head returns back to normal as both juries booed)
  • Shineflare:... Okay, well, maybe that sounds a BIT like bribe and manipulation of higher powers, but-
  • Discord: But nothing! Oh, and remember Lord Shen? As in, A GUY WHO WAS AGAINST ME AT THE TIME?!? (Gets Shineflare head again) A TOAST TO LORD SHEN! The alien who helped us banish Discord. May the demon rot in those woods! (Gets normal head and the jury boos even louder)
  • Celestia: (Royal voice) ORDER IN THE COURT! (Everyone quiets down)... Discord, I must ask, is this because you're being legitimately testifying, or is it because you're holding a huge gripe and want the jury to go chaotic with her?
  • Discord: Eh, take it anyway you like, Celestia, but I still say this bimbo is undeserving of her role as Headmistress. So I guess my work here is done. (Teleports away as the juries boo at her)
  • Celestia: ORDER, PLEASE, ORDER! (Everyone silenced themselves)... Everyone, we must remember to remain fair and unanimous in all this. Yes, it was wrong for Shineflare to abuse higher powers and blackmail well-respected heroes. But that doesn't mean she deserves no mercy. The point of this case is to put her in a fair sentence that she will not hate.
  • Twilight: Exactly. And we all know Discord, he possibly said all that just to be a jerk. But he was right about the crimes.
  • Shineflare: Look, all we're doing is just talking about my negatives. Is there ANYPONY in the courtroom who wants to SUPPORT me? You'd better have brought somepony who can do that.
  • Celestia: "Well, there was ORIGINALLY Pred Judu Des and the sisters, but as your well aware, they lost their respect for you."
  • Shineflare: "BESIDES THEM?!"
  • Twilight: "..... Here's, the grim reality. There's really no one that wants to speak positively about you. You've done nothing but hurt anyone you don't like, mainly because of their race over your unfortunate situation."
  • Shineflare: "..... Ok, maybe that was asking for too much..... WELL IS THERE SOMEONE WHO AT LEAST WON'T TALK TOO BADLY ABOUT ME!?"
  • Twilight: "We do have that. We would like to call, Pred to the stand."
  • Shineflare: "Finally, at least I'll get some form of defender."
  • Pred came in.
  • Pred: "Don't expect me to entirely protect your ass, Shine. I am gonna be blunt and honest about this."
  • Pred gets into the stand.
  • Twilight: "Pred Judu Des, is it true that Shineflare has covered for your previous crimes, justifying them as heroisum, and even asked you to commit conspiracties to lure Equestia away from tolerating other races, espeically the infamous 4th of July fiasco?"
  • Pred: "..... It'd be an understatement to just say..... Yes."
  • Twilight: "And you once confessed that what happened to the Minotaur Pub, the Centaur Village, and the Dragon Embessy were your doings that Shineflare used her political powers to cover up?"
  • Pred: ".... Sparkle, I'd already be stopped by now if that wasn't true."
  • Twilight: ".... Do you admit that Shineflare was a negitive enfluence to you?"
  • Pred: "HA! Understatement of all of Equestia! She was bloodly worse to the council ponies! I even see her abuse the cowerdly one! Cosmo or something I think he was. And all that because Griffins enslaved her and because her speical somepony got wasted by a dragon? Let's be honest, would her outlook be any different if none of that happened? She is part of the Golden Sword clan after all. Roughber once referenced that."
  • Twilight: "It was proven that the Golden Sword clan became one of the several groups of mythic slaying ponies to have disbanned when Equestians began to care more about getting along with the Mythic being community. And it was long before a particular group that housed Shineflare were taken under slavery."
  • Pred: "Really now? Well in that case, the Rockenmock family have foolishly re-waken her killer instincts. Take it from someone who went through the same pain. Once a pony who came from a slayer family found their killer instincts, it ain't bloodly easy to reverse it. I should know. I'm the living breathing exsample of that! The mere uttering of my name makes even giant dragons piss themselves in fear! Watch! (Pulls out a megaphone) PRED JUDU DES!?"
  • Elderly Dragon: (All dragons panic as pee was scattered all across the area off-camera, and this elderly dragon gets a heart attack and falls)
  • Dragon #1: GRANNY, NOOOO!!!
  • Granny Dragon: (Wakes up)...Oh, stopped my heart for a couple of seconds there.
  • Shineflare: (Softly scoffs until Twilight looked at her sternly as she just whistles)
  • Pred: And you know the worst part of it? She even hired me to kill the ENTIRE Rockenmock family. And before you asked about all of them dying in a fire caused by her when she was young, that was a cover-up too! Truth is, half of them survived. She had me finished off what was left. They're all gone because of her vengeful cruel heart. And she poured more salt in the wound by not even thanking me for it. SHE NEVER TOOK ME SERIOUSLY WHEN I DID ODD JOBS FOR HER! All she cared about was the deed being done, and nothing else. She treated ME as some sort of slave, doing everything for free without any credit.
  • Shineflare: Wha-, I DID APPRECIATE YOU! And that whole 'slave' thing? Who do you think I am, some sort of hypocrite? I did a LOT of things for you. I declared you a hero. You were WORTH something to me.
  • Pred: Oh, really? Is that something, or was it another one of your little cover-ups?
  • Shineflare:... Okay, Pred, I get it, I didn't give you the adulation you deserved. But don't use that as an excuse to admonish me!
  • Pred: Oh, why not? Besides, putting up with you after all these years has been ANOTHER reason why I retired as a beast-slayer. You are just a self-centered stubborn old mule who thinks she can treat non-ponies far worse than what you suffered, all because you had the damn power to back it up. That makes you nothing more than a bully.
  • Shineflare: Pred, please!
  • Pred: But... If I have to say ANYTHING nice about you... You're at least a pony of honor.
  • Shineflare: HACKS, I CALL HACKS-...Wait, what?
  • Twilight: "Would you like to explain why for those that are caught-off gaurd by the claim?"
  • Pred: "Ok, hear me out everyone. If there's one thing she does do right, is that she lived up to her promises, and I am not just referencing the fact she covered up my ass from Celestia and other govermental forces. She has moments when she isn't ENTIRELY stubbern. After all, she allowed that Kung-Fu School to happened, barring being begrudgent did she? And she was the one who slew Roughber, is she not? I mean, be honest Mythics, you can't deny that Roughber was the worse exsample of your kind and you can't deny that your glad Shineflare killed him, right? He would've ended up making it WAY easier for me to earned credability among ponies and would've inspired more slayers! Some may've been worse then even I could've ever managed. You can't deny that her slaying of Rougher really saved your asses there from more slayers." (The juries murmured in agreement)
  • Shineflare:...I...I don't know what to say.
  • Pred: Well, come on, Shineflare, Twilight brought me in to talk about your positives and negatives. Considering I'm technically the only pony who knows you more than anypony else, I can at least give you the SLIGHTEST bit of mercy.
  • Shineflare:...Thank you.
  • Pred: But again, keep in mind that it won't protect you for long. That's pretty much the only good thing you did.
  • Shineflare:...(Sighs) I was afraid of that.
  • Pred: So in conclusion, I say that Shineflare may've been bad, but she could sometimes be helpful in one way or another. Which is why I suggest we give her a governmental position that she won't abuse to a massive degree.
  • Shineflare:...Are you sure there's ANY position in Canterlot that will do?
  • Celestia: That's what we're deciding, Shineflare.
  • Twilight: And there's only one last testimony I can think of to clear all this. Prosecution calls Hidden Shadow to the stand.
  • Pred:...Hmm, that sounds nice. My spy daughter seems like a good testimony for Shineflare.
  • Hidden Shadow: (Was already in the crowd and teleported to the stand)...Alright, I'm here.
  • Twilight: So, Hidden Shadow, is it true you served as a spy for your adopted father AND sometimes for the Unicorn Council?
  • Hidden Shadow: Yes. My uncle in the Council had a lot of duties, so I came under the care of Pred. And my skills in stealth played well.
  • Twilight: And your spy job means that you have kept close eyes on not just targets, but for your adopted and biological families' jobs?
  • Hidden Shadow: Oh, absolutely. All the members of the Unicorn Council are known to be quite different in one way or another. When I was a filly, Violet Flame used to scare me with her aggression. Hard to believe that another Councilpony would find that attractive in her. Others were in it for personal problems like the soft-spoken Utopius. I knew Shineflare ever since I was a baby. My uncle tried their best to hide her actions from me when I was growing up, but when I overheard her talking about one of her cover-ups... Well... Things got a little noisy and loud. Violet was at her most frightening, and I was crying for a while. Regardless, when my uncle explained, I didn't think Shineflare was being nice at all.
  • Twilight:... Then why did you comply to her acts and never tell anypony?
  • Hidden Shadow: Are you kidding? This is the Unicorn Council we're talking about here. I'm pretty sure that wouldn't play well for me if I were to tell everypony about the cover-ups and risk having angry mobs form around my family's home.
  • Twilight:... So... Why did you agree with and support them?
  • Hidden Shadow: "I had my own reasons, that I assume you already know yourself, Sparkle. I just wanted to get justice for what became of my parents at the hands of Malevolent's followers, and Pred and Shineflare were in a way offering it. Though my stances softened, I still supported Pred, but I began to feel as if Shineflare wasn't being a good enfluence on my uncle nor that of the other council ponies. It's like Shineflare was trying to maintain enturnal loyalty as if the Unicorn Council didn't really supported her."
  • Shineflare: POPPYCOCK!! I treat my Councilpony colleagues with the utmost respect for their work. I mean, Jesus, just ask them, and they'll tell you!
  • Hidden Shadow: Oh, I asked them alright. I have their notes right here.
  • Shineflare: Well, then, I'm sure you'll find that they know me all too well, as I gave them the utmost attention they deserved, and-
  • Hidden Shadow: They say you didn't! (Shineflare eyes engorged slightly in surprise)
  • Shineflare:... (Dubbed as Nostalgia Critic)... WHAAAAAAAAAAA?!?
  • Hidden Shadow: "We all know on how Shineflare treats Cosmoto over being cowerdly, but hear on how she treats her other collages."

Flashback (Within a Flashback.)

  • Shineflare: (Getting a suntan)... GLITTERHAIR! Pass me my pina colada!
  • Glitterhair: (Sweating) Uh, Shineflare, it's literally 5 feet away, why don't you just get it yourself?
  • Shineflare: (Chuckles) Glitterhair, (Uses her magic to slap the back of her head with a small towel) Just do it!
  • Glitterhair:... (Sighs, and brought it to her, and when she did, she cartoonishly got scorched)...
  • Shineflare:... Hey, you want a pina colada, buy one like everypony else, cheapo! (Glitterhair groaned in aggravation)
  • (Shineflare): (Chuckles) Okay, I can explain that, I just wanted Glitterhair to enjoy the nice warm sun.
  • (Hidden Shadow): It says right here in black and white, she was sweating and didn't have a drink in hours, and you were so lazy, you sent her to expose herself to the sun. Said it was the worst moments of summer she ever had.
  • (Shineflare):... (Sighs) That's just such a negative statement. I'd like to call it as 'giving her a good laugh'.
  • (Hidden Shadow): Glitterhair didn't thought it was so funny. ANYWAY, back to the other Councilors. Hearth's Warming Eve 2012...

Another Flashback

  • Shineflare: (Was working in her office until a door opening sound and a huge breeze was heard, and Shineflare came out to see Violet Flame)... VIOLET, where have you been? You missed the royal summit today.
  • Violet Flame: Well, excuse me, but have you seen the weather outside? It's cold as balls out there! And if that wasn't enough, a TON of s*** happened to me last night! First, the café stand closed one day before I could get some hot chocolate, RIGHT AFTER I WAITED CELESTIA KNOWS HOW LONG IN LINE FREEZING MY ASS OFF TO GET THERE, then I accidentally pissed off some dumb asshole in anger, got my leg broken, had to spend valuable gift money to pay for the healing procedures, and I had to rest the healed leg for the rest of the night, then I discovered... I FORGOT TO TAKE MY MOTHERF****** RISPERIDONE YESTERDAY MORNING. Then this morning, I froze my ass off at the crowded marketplace trying to get gifts for my 4 nephews, and because of spending money for my injury, I had to get cheaper versions of what I wanted, but when they opened it due to their 1-present on Hearth's Warming Eve tradition and found it was not the one they wanted, I was scolded harshly by them. And as you can imagine, THE WAY TO THIS SUMMIT WAS A DECK IN THE HALLS!!! IT'S LIKE -42 F****** DEGREES OUT THERE! AND WHY WERE WE HAVING A SUMMIT ON HEARTH'S WARMING EVE, ANYWAY?!?
  • Shineflare:... Okay, first off, watch that mouth of yours before I wipe soap on it. Second, it's Hearth's Warming Eve, so what was with that attitude? Third, this summit was about Celestia's Hearth's Warming Winter Solstice Celebration tomorrow and to talk about the details and everything that needs to go into it. We go through that every leap year, so surely you would've known that. Now, we need to review everything with you because you couldn't handle a little snow.
  • Violet Flame:... (Sighs and falls down)
  • Shineflare:... If I didn't know any better, I'd say somepony was a hummy-humbugs.
  • Violet Flame: Lick my s***, you horse's ******** ******* ***** ********* ***** ******* ****!
  • Shineflare: Just for that, you are suspended for 2 weeks!
  • Violet Flame: Wait, what about the Winter Solstice Celebration?
  • Shineflare: We'll send in a replacement. Now get out of my sight, Ms. Pottymouth!
  • (Hidden Shadow): The rest is a bunch of cuss words written in red or black marker, that I'd rather not repeat them for her.
  • (Shineflare):... I was just telling her to watch her mouth?
  • (Hidden Shadow): That's no excuse. She says that the rest of her Hearth's Warming Eve wasn't very good. Her own deranged grandfather belt-whipped her after hearing about the incident... AND stuffed a block of soap in her mouth... In front of the entire family... And let's just say she was crying at home for 5 hours the next day after that humiliation.
  • (Pony #3): A POX ON HER HOUSE!!!
  • (Pony #4): Well, THAT was very naughty.
  • (Pony #5): I bet she got a metric ton of coal after that!
  • (Shineflare): HEY, YOU KNOW THAT I DON'T TAKE BEING CUSSED AT BY MY OWN COLLEAGUES VERY WELL! IT'S HER FAULT FOR TALKING TO ME LIKE THAT!
  • (Hidden Shadow): You didn't exactly help by back-talking her when she had a rough time. Just because you're Headmistress, it doesn't mean you can treat people however you like, and THAT'S precisely the reason why you're here. Now, for Whimsisco's complaint...

Another Flashback

  • Whimsisco was seen walking down the halls with a younger filly, the happiest she's ever been.
  • The filly: "Auntie Whimsy, when I grow up, I wanna be just like you."
  • Whimsisco: "..... I'm glad for you on that, but when you do, you might wanna hope it's by the time Shineflare's no longer in office. Trust me. She's not what I call, a pony who knows what she's doing. I mean, I understand the reason she's like that, given her, backstory, but sometimes, I felt as if she wasn't meant to have the position."
  • The Filly: "I'm sure she's not that bad."
  • Whimsisco: "..... Try telling me that after you see her give that blitering cowerd Cosmoto another daily smackdown."
  • A girly scream was heard!
  • Whimsisco and the filly gasped!
  • Shineflare was seen giving Cosmoto a brutal smackdown!
  • Shineflare: "I SAID I WANTED DECAF, YOU IGNORMAMUS PENIS SLURPING BASTURD?! YOU KNOW WHAT HIGH CAFINE DOES TO ME!?"
  • Cosmoto: "HOW IS THIS ANY DIFFERENT FROM MY NORMAL DAILY BEATINGS?!"
  • Shineflare: "(Brings out narly metal horseshoes) THESE?!"
  • Cosmoto: "BUT YOU ONLY USE THOSE EVERY ONE FRIDAY!?"
  • Shineflare: "CAFINE MAKES ME FORGET!?"
  • Shineflare begins violently beating up Cosmoto!
  • Whimsisco: "MISSUS SHINEFLARE?! MY NIECE IS PRESENT?!"
  • Shineflare stopped and noticed......
  • Cosmoto: "...... And the craziest thing is, the cafine didn't even set in."
  • Whimsisco's niece looked trumatised and was seen shedding tears.
  • Shineflare: "..... Uhhhhh...... We, were just rough-housing?"
  • (Hidden Shadow): And from that point, her niece didn't wanna be like her anymore, even with Shineflare out of office. The traumatic experience she felt that day gave her good reason to write this complaint.
  • (Shineflare): IT WAS AN ACCIDENT!! HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT HER SENSITIVE NIECE WAS PRESENT?!?
  • (Hidden Shadow): She stated that she told you that it was Bring Your Relatives To Work Day.
  • (Shineflare):...I THOUGHT SHE WASN'T GONNA PARTICIPATE IN THAT!
  • (Hidden Shadow): (Sighs) Let's move on to Utopius's complaint...

Another Flashback

  • Utopius: "Miss Shineflare, are you sure you want these Dragon Sneeze Trees planted all around Canterlot?"
  • Shineflare: "Alchourse I do! The friendship summit is coming up and I want this place protected from hostile dragons that would want to attack it for any reason."
  • Utopius: "...... I'm, not sure plants designed to aggitate fire breathers would really keep Canterlot from being burned by dragons."
  • Shineflare: "Trust me, Utopius, the dragons would be too bothered by the plants to even stay around for any sneeze to occur. These marvelious plants will keep the summit from being ruined by hostile dragons."
  • Utopius: "(Sighs defeatedly)..... Ok, your the boss. But don't come complaining to me when it all backfires."
  • (Hidden Shadow): "But later down the road."
  • Shineflare and the other council ponies stared shocked at the ruined summit!
  • Shineflare: "WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SUMMIT!?"
  • Candence: "(Coming up) Well, Young Spike got into some trouble with respondsability..... And some Dragon Sneeze Trees that seemed to just magicly appear into Canterlot when we had no history of them...."
  • Shineflare: "....... IT WAS UTOPIUS'S FAULT!? SHE WANTED TO PROTECT THE SUMMIT FROM HOSTILE DRAGON ATTACKS! I TOLD HER NO, BUT SHE WOULDN'T LISTEN!?"
  • Utopius: "What!? But Shineflare, it was your id-"
  • Shineflare: "I have proof RIGHT HERE!? (Brings out a piece of paper and shows it to Candence.)"
  • Candence: "(Reading) Tree Planter's Exotic Plant Store of Saddle Arabia. Dragon Sneeze Trees paid for by Councilpony Utopius. (Speaking) Is this true, miss Utopius?"
  • Utopius: "....... I, I,..... Yes.... It's true..... But-"
  • Celestia: "(Sternly) What's going on here?"
  • Candence: "Appearently, Utopius desided that we needed defence from dragon attacks by planting Dragon Sneese Trees."
  • Twilight: "..... So it was YOUR fault?! Spike ended up causing the summit to almost be ruined because of you! Not to mention that my reputation almost took a nose dive!? Because of those stupid trees, everything went to crap!?"
  • Utopius: "But but, but, Princess Sparkle, let me explain-"
  • Complaining summit goers surrounded Utopius and not letting her get a word in edge-wise.
  • Shineflare was slowly making a break for it while the going's good, but Spike stood in the way.
  • Spike: "...... Utopius was doing what you said, wasn't she? She never wanted to planted those things, did she?"
  • Shineflare: "Out of my way, you snooping reptile!? Or else I-"
  • Spike: "YOU listen here, Shinebutt! Either you admit that it was your fault, (brings out a Sneeze Tree plant) Or else."
  • Shineflare gasped!
  • Shineflare: "....... YOU, WOULDN'T DARE, YOU LITTLE MONSTER?!"
  • Spike: "Try me! (Rubs the plant on his nose for a bit) Ah, ah, ah, AHHHH!?"
  • Shineflare: "Nonononononononononono-"
  • The outside of Canterlot castle was seen.
  • Spike's voice: "CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!?"
  • A green glow was seen from a window as Shineflare comicly screamed in pain!
  • (Pony #1): YOU FRAMED ONE OF YOUR OWN COLLEAGUES?!?
  • (Celestia): Even I knew that was a lie because of my ability to sense lies.
  • (Shineflare): OKAY, CAN YOU REALLY BLAME ME FOR MAKING A MISTAKE?!?
  • (Twilight): It's not about the mistake, it's about you framing Utopius for the mistake. For a pony of honor, you seem less honest than Pred said you were.
  • (Shineflare): Look, at least I tried to apologize, right?
  • (Hidden Shadow): Utopius said you did, for sure. But framing a fellow Councilpony is NOT something even an apology can fix. Now, last but not least, and the most PERSONAL one for me, my uncle Councilpony Cometelius. And WORST of all... It happened when I was a filly....

Final Flashback

  • Shineflare: (Comes into Cometelius' office) Cometelius, I was talking to the bank, and they told me you donated over 20,000 bits from our savings. That's almost everything we had. What the buck was it for?
  • Cometelius: Well, Shineflare, remember that summit with King Drakesis we had last week? You didn't exactly leave a good impression on him. I discovered that yesterday, he was still upset and even Celestia had a hard time reasoning with him. Those hurtful words you said to him almost ended their relationship, so I offered to help.
  • Shineflare: SO YOU DONATED THAT MONEY WITHOUT MY AUTHORIZATION?!?
  • Cometelius: Well, Celestia agreed that it was a good enough discipline.
  • Shineflare: DISCIPLINE?!? WE NEEDED THAT MONEY BECAUSE WE OWED MOST OF THE PONY GUARDS OVERTIME!!! REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED THE LAST TIME WE FAILED TO PAY OVERTIME TO THE ROYAL GUARD?!? WE LOST OVER 500 SOLDIERS, AND IT NEARLY CAUSED ORCS TO DESTROY CANTERLOT!!!
  • Cometelius:... Now, Shineflare, I'm sure we can find another way to cover for the overtime, I mean, you have to understand the money was for diplomatic reasons, losing the trust of Drakesis would've risked eventual war by him being malmitulated by dishonest generals! I was looking out for Equestia's well-being and- No no no, please put those hooves down! No no no no NO-

Later...

  • Shineflare: (Cometelius was seen beaten up and unconscious as Pony Guards were tending to him) (Shrugs) I swear to God, how could somepony be so INCOMPETENT?!?
  • Pony Guard #1: Should we call an ambulance carriage?
  • Shineflare: It's too late for him, the infection has already spread to his eyes. But he should be fine.
  • ???: UNCLE COMETELIUS, WHAT'S ALL THAT NOISE?!? (Filly Hidden Shadow came in) All the Guards are being so active now, and- (Gasps as she sees Cometelius hurt)... Oh, no! What happened?
  • Pony Guard #2:... Aren't you going to tell her?
  • Shineflare:... I... A dragon came in and-
  • Pony Guard #3: SHE beaten him up because he used what could've been guard paycheck money to prevent the start of a pony dragon war! Good cause in my book to be honest, but Shinebutt didn't think so!
  • Hidden Shadow:... (Cries and runs away) HOW COULD YOU?!? (Cries)
  • Pony Guard #2:... Really, dude? You have no sense of tact!
  • Pony Guard #3: What, it's better to cut straight to the point than to just confuse her with poor choice of words.
  • Pony Guard #2:... (Sighs)
  • (Hidden Shadow): But I am at least forgiving of you after that because the injury was not fatal. But the infections made his eyesight poor.
  • (Twilight):... So THAT'S why Cometelius has to wear glasses?
  • (Hidden Shadow): Yeah, because his only crime was resolving an issue that had a potainional to be a new fear wars, and Shineflare had the NERVE AND THE ODASITY TO NOT APPRESIATE IT!?

Present

  • Shineflare: (Both juries looked angrily and disappointed at her as she was sweating literal gushes chuckling nervously)... PLEASE, I BEG OF YOU PEOPLE, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE POSITIVE YOU CAN SAY ABOUT ME?!? All this is doing is making it easier for them to throw me into an unfair sentence! I tried to apologize to Hidden Shadow, didn't I?
  • Hidden Shadow: Yeah, but I didn't want any apology from you because you were just as bad as Malevolent Flames with that act.
  • Shineflare: HOW DARE YOU COMPARE ME TO THAT MONSTER?!? THAT ACT WAS 60% DISCIPLINE!
  • Hidden Shadow: Pardon my French, but after that incident, you wouldn't know discipline if it sexually assaulted you in the horn, even in contrast to brony thoeries that our horns aren't really sexually active! You assaulted my uncle, and had it not been for my young age, I would've rightfully pressed charges against you. Which is why I can agree with full confidence that you do not deserve to be Headmistress of the Unicorn Council.
  • Shineflare: (Softly sobs, surprising everyone in the room)...
  • Twilight:... Shineflare... Are you... Crying?
  • Shineflare: NO! It's just my allergies!
  • Twilight: Shineflare!
  • Shineflare: OKAY, ENOUGH! *Sniff* ENOUGH WITH THE NEGATIVE S*** ABOUT ME!! I GET IT, I AM NOT A NICE PONY! BUT...(Sobs)... BUT HOW WOULD YOU ACT IF YOU WERE ENSLAVED BY A SLAVERY FOUNDATION AND YOU WERE NEARLY RAPED BY A DRUNKEN PEDOPHILIC MANIAC?!? I felt dirty! I felt like I was nothing special in Equestria! I NEVER wanted ponies to feel that pain, and I wanted to show non-ponies how it felt to be in my horseshoes. And, yes, abusing my fellow councilponies was pushing it, but I was only looking out for what's best for the Unicorn Council, BESIDES how far-fetched the methods were! I WANTED TO SHOW MY PARENTS HOW NON-PONIES LIKED IT IF THAT PAIN WAS WREAKED ON THEM! I MEAN, CELESTIA'S MADE-UP BEARD, DO YOU HAVE ANY GODDAMN IDEA HOW MEAN NON-PONIES ARE, EVEN TODAY?!? GRIFFINS ARE EITHER AGGRESSIVE OR INSENSITIVE JERKS, DRAGONS ARE GREEDY BEASTS WHO ATTACK ANYTHING THAT DISTURBS THEM, CENTAURS HAVE A LONG HISTORY OF CRIMINALS AND DARK SORCERERS, AND THAT'S NOT EVEN COVERING THE LONG LIST OF COMPLAINTS I HAVE FOR ALL THE OTHER SENTIENT MYTHICAL BEINGS IN EQUESTRIA! I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT PONIES WERE NEVER TREATED THE WAY I WAS, AND SHOULD PAY THE PRICE BY GIVING THEM A TASTE OF THEIR OWN MEDICINE?!? CAN YOU BLAME ME FOR BEING SO GODDAMN CARRIED AWAY AFTER THE VARIOUS WHIPPINGS I HAVE ENDURED, ALL THE PAIN AND MURDER I WITNESSED AS A FILLY, ALL THE DISCRIMINATION, ALL THE SLAVERY, ALL THE SUFFERING?!?... I...(Cries hysterically)... Who the f*** am I kidding? None of you would even understand! Just do whatever you want with me! Kick me out of the government, see if I care? I'm just worthless! (Cries on the table as literal waterfalls of tears were seen)...
  • Dragon #1:... Wow... Now I feel sorry for her.
  • Centaur #1: Yeah, me too!
  • Griffin #1: Same here.
  • Dragon #2: What've we done?
  • An Aged Goblin: "Tragic as it is, I'm afraid it still proves that Shineflare is not suited for any goverment position. Anyone THIS mentally damaged and with a prior history being from a slayer group, and yet somehow was ever allowed a goverment position, why, that's asking for trouble in my book. I'm surprised that it was ever allowed period. To be bluntingly honest, I don't think I can trust her with even the most minor and unimpourent goverment position period."
  • Because of this, the Juries have entered into a conflict, devided by the fact that both sides have a leg to stand on, Shineflare is indeed a mess but doesn't inheredly deserved to be punished, but giving her an even minor position of goverment may not nessersarly be saver for Equestia.
  • Celestia: "(Sighs)..... (To Twilight) I'm afraid this means we can't give Shineflare a subliment job in the goverment after all. The Juries are too conflicted by what is wrong with her and her past. Eventally, it'll be lead to them simply wanting Shineflare just be removed from being part of any goverment position period, and then she'll most likely will have to be recimended to Black Staillian Asylum."
  • Twilight sighs.
  • Twilight: "..... I'm afraid to say that, because we have far too little postive things for Shineflare, this means that giving her a replacement career is, most likely, out of the question. The Juries have become massively conflicted by her past and her, current problems. Violent tendingcys, bad social skills and habits, lack of regaurd for other's feelings, commiting conspiracties, being generally unfair, mentally unpredictable, unrelieable, among other things that we'll be here all day and night if I continued, it's sadly obvious that if we wish to repair Shineflare's purity, it can't be through just giving her even a small, insignififgent position of athurity. Cause, that's the problem of Shineflare's mental state. We can't predict what she would do even with as much limited power as possable. Even if we so much as make Shineflare a pencel pusher, it can't garrentie she would be no less dangerious then many of the threats Equestia congured in the past. And let's be honest. It's hard to trust Shineflare to not relapse again even if we given her the fairest sentence possable. It was foolish of me to not expect this. What was I thinking? Sentences are never liked by the ones being sentenced to them! That's kinda the general idea of being punished! Pred was actselly the closest of being postitve about Shineflare, though not without his blunt confessions about his own bad blood with her! (Sighs)..... The Juries will be free to make their final virdict in the lounge."
  • The Juries of both groups left.

Eventally.

  • The Juries came back in.
  • Celestia: "Has the Juries desided?"
  • Dragon 1: "We have, Princess...... We are sorry to say that, in due to that both juries can't agree on an ideal sentence, I'm afraid to say..... We're both hunged juries. (The crowd gasped)...... It's because we're both sorry for her, but we still don't feel safe on the idea of her still being allowed anywhere near power, but we also don't want to contribute in making her worse then she already is. Heavy punishment is no good, light punishment won't have satisfying effects, we.... We don't know what is best for her."
  • Celestia: "..... I see. Do you even recimend having her held in confinements of any kinds?"
  • Dragon 1: ".... Afraid not. Black Stailian Asylum, ignoring Wind Rider and Svengallop, is too harsh, Princess Candence's reforming Monistairy is too public and too easy to find to less forgiving folk, Prison 42 is too filled with hardly sympathic prisoners baring very rare exceptions, we..... We don't know the best course of action for her."
  • Celestia: "...... I see...... Then, I'm afraid to say that the best I can offer, is to simply relieve Shineflare of govermental duty and to leave her into civilian life, and will be blacklisted from ever being allowed to return to power to prevent her relapsing into trying to return to her usual shenanigans. It's, the best I can offer since the juries have failed to reach an agreement. Court is ajourned."
  • Crowds were caught in awe and surprised, even Shineflare.

Main Flashback ends.

  • Lightning Dust: "..... Wow! The Juries failed to find what to do with her? It was THAT complicated?!"
  • Chow Mein: "Oh hell yeah it was! It's really hard to hate on someone like Shiny when you really got to know them alittle better."
  • Lightning Dust: "..... So, what's gonna happen to her now?"
  • Chow Mein: "I heard she left Canterlot and is going to make a new home for herself. As far as I know, she's yet to say where though."
  • Lightning Dust: "..... Gees, even I feel alittle bad about all this....... I hope Shineflare will be better of where-ever the road takes her."
  • Spike opned the door.
  • Spike: "Actselly, it's funny you mentioned Shineflare."

Manehatten flashback.

  • A normalised pony Shineflare was seen washing a chariot.
  • Shineflare finishes.
  • Shineflare: "(Monotoned) That'll be one bit."
  • The owner of the chariot paid no mind and just drove off!
  • Shineflare: "(Sighs)..... This city clearly needs more then a play to give them some shred of decentcy."
  • ???: "SHINEBUTT?!"
  • A fat jumpsuit pony came in.
  • Shineflare: "Yes, Mr. Scumbucket?"
  • Mr. Scumbucket: "I have complaint about you not being assertive with costamers!?"
  • Shineflare: "Mr. Scumbucket, please, I tried, but it's like I'm invisable to those-"
  • Mr. Scumbucket pulled out a belt and whipped her with it!
  • Shineflare: "AGGH?!"
  • Mr. Scumbucket: "NO EXCUSES?! NO FAIL TO WASH CHARIOTS FOR MONEY NEXT TIME, ELSE YOU NO GET ROOM IN MY APARTMENT?! MONEY MEANS ROOM FOR YOU?! NO MONEY, NO ROOM!? CAPRENDE?!"
  • Shineflare: "..... (Sobs abit)...... Yes, Mr. Scumbucket."
  • Mr. Scumbucket: "Good! Now, here come next chariot, and it looks like pony who owns it is rich beyond our dreams! CHARGE THEM EXTRA!?"
  • Scumbucket went back into the allyway.
  • The Regel chariot arrived, almost familier.
  • Shineflare: "(Monotoned) Would you care for a chariot cleaning for 50 bits? I'm Shineflare, the shiniest cleaner of all of Manehat- (Sees who the driver is, now with emotion) TEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN?! It's, it's...... IT'S YOU?!"
  • Twilight: (She and the other Mane Seven were in the chariot)...Hey, Shineflare!
  • Scumbucket:... Wait... I know voice! (Comes up)... PRINCESS TWILIGHT SPARKLE!!! It is honor to meet you!
  • Twilight: Mr. Scumbucket, I assume?
  • Scumbucket: Yes?
  • Twilight:... I think we need to talk about your methods on Shineflare.
  • Scumbucket: What do you mean? She seems to like job.
  • Applejack: Really? Because from what Starlight has told us when she was away while we were giving Rainbow Dash a lession about pranks, you're actually a controversial figure to work for, and NOT the kind for Shineflare. Your work record, according to your previous employees, say that you force them to charge extra depending upon the individual, and you belt-whip a lot of employees like they were naughty children.
  • Scumbucket:... I didn't even know they said stuff like that. In my defence, father raised me to be demanding figure.
  • Fluttershy: Then I'm afraid to say that both you and your father have confused being a strong leader to being abusive! I'd say that Shineflare is not going to get out of her predicament when she's working for an awful pony like you! Do you have ANY idea what she's been through in the past?
  • Scumbucket: Hey, she has to work earning an apartment place in my existite "Scumbuckit Appartments", yes? Also, I heard well enough of what this one's been doing with her life. Who hasn't know of this wrench before now? Given what she did, I say she deserves harsh treatment!... (The Mane Seven looked shocked at him)... What?...
  • Rarity:... You really are awful! Well I will have to see to it that a friend of mine named Coco will have to alarm the community of your bad taste in social activity! How did Shineflare even come across you? Why should anypony ever work for you after words like that, even if it's to have a roof over your head?
  • Twilight: I'm sorry, sir, but we're taking Shineflare off your hooves, because she's not getting the redemption she deserves if she's going to go through her childhood all over again.
  • Scumbucket: YOU CAN'T! SHE'S THE FIRST ONE INTERESTED IN LIVING IN SCUMBUCKET APARTMENTS IN YEARS!
  • Twilight: You DARE question the authority of a princess? That's normally dungeon-worthy. And when Rarity does make good on her plans with Coco, it'll be the mayor of Manehatten you'll have to worry about soon enough!
  • Starlight: And if she's been the first interested in having a room in THAT sorry excuse of an apartment in years... (a messy decrepted appartment was seen)... then I'm afraid that's YOUR problem. If you want ponies to even THINK about living in that miserable mess, I suggest you clean up your act AND get that apartment EXTREMELY needed care and treat ponies better. Because NOPONY wants to work for a greedy cruel jerk like you. It might also help to legally change your name and the apartment's, because 'Scumbucket' is the most clichéd negative name I heard in years!
  • Shineflare:... You're... Actually defending me? After all I did?
  • Twilight: When Starlight told me you were working for the infamous Scumbucket and I was told about his work methods, I knew I had to do something, because after how much you've been through, you deserve better than this!
  • Shineflare:... I don't feel like I do, to be honest.
  • Rainbow Dash: Just get your flank in the chariot. We'll help you off your hooves.
  • Scumbucket: (Takes out belt) Don't you DARE get in chariot, or I'll make you sorry! (Twilight levitated the belt and used it to lash out on Scumbucket as he whined in pain)
  • Rarity: YEAH! How does it feel, huh?
  • Twilight: That belt will be like that for the next 3 minutes. Maybe that'll teach you a lesson. Now come on, Shineflare. We'll decide your fate.
  • Shineflare:... I... Thank you. (She gets in as they rode off, Scumbucket's belt still whipping him)
  • Scumbucket: "Maybe- OW! It is- OW! Time that I- Ow, start becoming a better pony- OW!?"

Present

  • Spike: "Ever since, Shineflare's been staying in Ponyville and got a job in the castle as speaker of the princess of friendship. Of course, since Shineflare wants to be adequate for the job, she given herself a mental control spell to prevent her from.... relapsing."
  • Lightning Dust: "So she's tecnecally brainwashing herself because she doesn't trust herself to not take advantage of it?"
  • Spike: "We know, it sounds wack, but, Twilight said that it was her choice since even Shineflare herself doesn't trust herself to not screw up badly again. She really wants to change, but is afraid her bad mental health would ruin that in the blink of an eye, so, she learned about a powerful mental taming spell and used it on herself, and for a while, though not what we had in mind, it actselly worked. She even acted unbeleiveably nice to Discord, though Discord still managed to get her alittle peeved."
  • Lightning Dust: "Well to be fair, Discord knows how to push buttons. So, when will the others be ready to see me?"
  • Spike: Oh, they should be here in a few minutes and help you resume with your studies for the exam tomorrow. By the way, how have you and Acidburn been doing since you became a couple?
  • Lightning Dust: Oh, it was wonderful. Me and Acidburn have never been so happy in our lives. Especially since what happened to us in the past. I took him to see Daisy's grave. Acidburn decided to pray to her soul and tell her how lucky I was to meet a very special somepony. His speech... Kinda made me cry for a few minutes, and then even longer when I started wishing Daisy was alive to see us happily dating. It was so touching.
  • Spike: (Sobs a little bit) I don't know why I'm crying so quickly.
  • Lightning Dust: "Well, with that being said I guess, I'll come back tomorrow."

By Tomorrow.

  • Lightning Dust: "...... Ok, Twi. I'm ready to take the simulations seriously again, and to NOT start fooling around with them."
  • Twilight: I'm glad to know. Alchourse, you will have to retake some of them to give more accreate knowledge, because those changes were almost as bad as the Historic fictional movie.
  • Lightning Dust: "So, what happened to the Lougers?"
  • Rarity: "They have to attend Louger business as usual. Something about a world devided into a surface world of order and a underworld fighting against that for freedom."
  • Pinkie: "That sounds likes a generic case of freedom vs. safety."
  • Rarity: "Indeed. I mean, why must those beliefs conflict one another? Aren't they both good philosifies?"
  • Applejack: "And they're both impourent! You can't have one without the either! Ya need safety to keep freedom peaceful, but you need freedom to make safety less controlling. And I'm glad to know that the Lougers know better then to automaticly side with rebels just because socity automaticly approves of them! That kind of belief is reckless, cause you don't truthfully know the full story of rebels! They can actselly be just abunch of jerks, or worse, they could be terrorists! Anarchists even!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "To be fair, people like rebels because, ya kinda can't deny that sometimes, the goverments don't always know what's best for the people. At best, it's unrelieable, at worse, it's being malmitulated by corrupt jerks!"
  • Applejack: "And I acknowledge cases like that, but what I was saying that you need to read more what the groups are about before ya go picking a side! Stars Wars did that by proving that the Empire is a legit evil and the Rebels were good guys! I'm glad the Lougers are educating the universeal folk to not automaticly trust anything that happens to offer something universeally liked just because the goverment ain't being relieable or being stubbern about something."
  • Rarity: "Also while not discouraging the desire to correct a goverment mistake without going out of your way of hurting people you don't really know what their morality is, and that they can't judge them based on their profession. People need to acknowledge that just because someone's a goverment worker doesn't mean that they're not people anymore. This person, like, an enforcer for exsample, is otherwise still no different then the average being who most likely has a family to care about like most others. Hurting that person over his allignment to a force your not happy with makes you worse then whatever unrelieable polotisan your not happy about."
  • Twilight: "Well said. Though there's nothing wrong with wanting to make a benifital change, you shouldn't do it in a way that makes you more demonising then the problem your against. It will only serve to make you look like an anarchist and that will risk a strained relation between a system that may not be as malevolent as you think. Unless there is proof of such malevolence, know about the situation more before you make a rash act."
  • Lightning Dust: "Hey, all that's awesome and all, but can we get to the simulation re-takes? I'm itching for some magical halogram action!"
  • Twilight: Well, of course. All that stuff you were fortunate enough to learn was a good start, too. And besides that bit where you caused Freezer to kill himself, you more or less learned a thing or two until those two gargoyles showe dup and interupted the Razer Feather battle.
  • Lightning: Anyway, let's move on.
  • Twilight: Alright. Just step onto the map, and I'll send you to where you left off before you met Acidburn. (Lightning did that as she was teleported away by a bubble field)...
  • Pinkie: OOH, that was quite a pretty light show! (A montage was seen of Lightning going through every bit of Wonderbolt history, while 'Through My Own Eyes' from earlier was heard)

Later...

  • Twilight: (As Lightning came out of the simulation through a bubble field)...Alright, let's go over what you experienced. You knew General Firefly's formation of the Wonderbolts, Phased Dazer's campaign against the Firemane Group, Colonel Purple Dart's fight against Freezer Burn, and...
  • Lightning: And how the stealth mission went on successfully as they were almost caught, and Purple Dart defeated Freezer Burns by tricking him into believing that he was actselly a great desendent from the future saying that Freezer Burns long lost, which resulted in him killing himself. Kinda no different then how I did it.
  • Twilight: Very good. You seem to know enough details about that, too. Now, what about the Wonderbolt Second Fliers Tournament when Commander Easyglider won first prize and was rewarded a flight choreographer title?
  • Lightning: Invented a decent amount of flight maneuvers that the Wonderbolts still use today. And DAMN, I managed to learn almost every single one when I flew with his platoon. Surprised he actually invented the Sonic Rainboom 5 years afterward.
  • Twilight: Founding of the Wonderbolt Academy?
  • Lightning: When the Black Gryphon Faction declared war on Equestria, Admiral Fairweather needed more recruits, and thus he founded the Wonderbolt Academy a dozen times over when the BGF constantly destroyed them until the Academy of today was founded in Cloud Country Islands. More recruits sprouted, yet the BGF was smart and nearly destroyed the academy had it not been for elaborate drills that Fairweather taught his hundreds of recruits that the Academy survived. Good prevailed, but at the cost of a lot of lives. Those that remained fought the BGF for 2 years until the Academy recruited enough members to take them down in their headquarters in Black Cloud Islands, taking down their formidable leader, Obsidian Claw.
  • Twilight: Great. What about the splitting of the Wonderbolt Army into the teams we know of today?
  • Lightning: Admiral Fairy Flight thought that one base was too vulnerable after retiring from leading the seventh Wonderbolt squadron, so he declared that the Wonderbolts be split and spread across dozens of flying islands. Especially when they heard rumors of a traitor within their ranks and eased the burden, leaving the secret faction to find the base abandoned and with no idea of where they have gone.
  • Twilight: Excellent!
  • Pinkie: (Yawns and takes a remote that fast-forwards the reviews)
  • Lightning:... Then the Razor Feathers were cut off duty and now serve the Griffin Mafia.
  • Twilight: Gold star. Well, you seem to know enough. So let's head on over to the exam.
  • Rainbow Dash: Make me proud in there. Better yet, make Acidburn and Daisy proud.
  • Lightning:... Thanks, Rainbow.

Wonderbolt Academy

  • Twilight and friends, plus Acidburn in a newly aquired Wonderbolt outfit were seen waiting outside the door of an impourent class room.
  • Fluttershy: "I really hope Lightning Dust well..... She tends to be very emotional after she fails high expectations."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Yeah, and the aftermath in the Gala event speaks for itself. I almost had a bad back from that. And trust me, it's not good for a Pegacious to have back problems."
  • Pinkie: "Why's that, Dashie?"
  • Rainbow Dash: Why do you think? Pegasi with bad backs have a hard time flying. It's kind of a prerequisite to have a straight back when flying to keep balance. Point is, if she doesn't pass, I am not going to be happy.
  • Acidburn: Oh, I have faith in her. She's been waiting her whole life for this moment. Hopefully, this test will allow her to successfully uphold her family's honor...you know, after her constant failures to do so before.
  • Twilight: I have faith in her as well. Our reviews went on for a while.
  • Pinkie: Tell me about it!
  • Lightning Came out looking solumly.
  • Everyone looks concerned.
  • Acidburn: "..... Babe, what's wrong?"
  • Lightning: ".... I'll tell you what's wrong...... My test went awful....."
  • Twilight and the group sighed depressivly."
  • Lightning Dust: "...... (Suddenly smiles) AWFULLY WELL?! (PULLS OUT THE PAPER WITH A PASSING GRADE!) GOTYA! BA-BAM!? I GOT A'ED UP IN THIS HIS-HOUSE!?"
  • The Group began to surround Lightning Dust and congradulate her.
  • Rainbow Dash: "Ya got us good, Lightning! Ya got us good!"
  • Pinkie: "This calls for a celebration! A visit to Tasty Treat is on me! I know the chefs there."
  • Lightning Dust: "Oh I heard of that place, it became very popular recently. And it doesn't have to be another 3-hooved restaurent to do it. I'm glad I heard that Canterlot no longer takes a bitchy critic seriously though. From what I heard recently, she sounded like she sucked at her job as a critic."
  • The Ponies leave.
  • Pinkie: "Say, I wonder.... How the Lougers been doing?"

Epilogue

Meanwhile, in a planet on the Alternate Universes.

  • The Lougers, Gazelle, and the HA are seen being chased by a large army of dirty looking rebelers while some of the stronger lougers are holding kegs for some reason!
  • Duke Weaselton: "Gazzy, I think your plan worked TOO WELL!?"
  • Gazelle: "JUST TRUST ME GUYS!? THOUGH ALL THE SAME, I'M SORRY FOR DRAGGING US INTO THIS MESS TO BEGIN WITH!? I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS GONNA BE THIS EFFECTIVE!?"
  • Icky: "It's ok! At least we're leading the big crowds away!"
  • Gazelle: "Still I wish I can make up for this!"
  • Spongebob: "YOU CAN START BY NOT DYING AND RUN!?"
  • The Heroes scream as the rebelers chased them!
  • Western-like voice: "How did the Lougers get themselves in this fine jar of pickles? You'll find out soon enough in the next episode."
