The Return of Storm King

MSM Poster

The Storm King has been resurrected by his family since his defeat in the 2017 Movie, as his father had just passed away, and seeing how his last staff was destroyed, he takes his father's indestructible and more powerful staff and uses it to finish his job, first by finding Tempest Shadow and return her to his side by kidnapping Hidden Shadow, who just so happens to be her younger sister, and this gets the attention of their immediately-responding long-lost an thought-to-be-dead mother Aphelion Shadow, who had lost Tempest as a rookie child leader after her husband was killed by Storm King and has failed constantly to save her older daughter, and had to withhold her info from Hidden for her safety. Now that she's back and the PTSD-based wrecked sanity is too clear, the Lodgers and Mane Six have to travel outside Equestria again with Captain Celaeno, Capper, Princess Skystar, Queen Novo, and many others to find a legendary foreign hero guild called the Guardians of Harmony, lead by the Hippogriff legend known as Stratus Skyranger, in order to find Tempest, who has left Equestria following her reformation to redeem herself through good deeds, and Storm King intends to find her by not only kidnapping Hidden, Pred and Daughters, Shineflare, and others, but by using his father's staff to surround all areas in and beyond Equestria with powerful storms until Tempest shows herself. Thus, the heroes must get the Guardians of Harmony out of hiding and back into action and ensure that Storm King is stopped once again. Will they succeed?

Scenes

Storm King Returns/Another Friendship Festival

(Storm King Revived)

  • ???:... Okay, let's get this over with. (Storm Creatures used a powerful weather spell to reform Storm King from his shattered coal remains and revive him)
  • Storm King:... Wha... What happened? Where am I?
  • ???: You were turned to coal and smashed by Tempest, brother.... (The figure was revealed to be another satyr like him, only female and with black hair)... I mean, seriously, you were KILLED by a pony? That has to be the worse death ever! Heck, I wouldn't've even BOTHERED bringing your lame ass back if it wasn't for family obligation.
  • Storm King: (Sarcastically) Gee, thanks for caring, dear sister.
  • S.K.'s Sister: And believe me, it was so bad, that our family's kinda falling apart, more than already since your rise as the family conqueror! But your epic fall, WAS WORSE! The family lost their edge and spread out. Undergrowth lost his control over the underground as the Changelings he enslaved over the years, unsurprisingly revolted and permanently entrapped and entombed his fatass into a goo cocoon! What a GROSS way to go! And I still have no word about our sky pirate cousin and the other family members! But I sure as hell wasn't giving up! I knew the spell father used to bring ME back when I lost control of my staff and shared a similar fate. But... Father... Well...
  • Storm King:... What? What is it, Valkyrie, TELL ME!!!
  • Valkyrie Queen:... To put it simply, bringing you back to life could not have come at a time more serious for our clan. Father, is.... Well, it's finally his turn to join our ancestors' souls in the worst pits of Tartarus.
  • Storm King: Wha... WHY DIDN'T YOU BRING ME BACK SOONER, YOU SMUG C**T?!?
  • Valkyrie Queen: Well, I did have to PUT YOUR COALED BODY BACK TOGETHER!! PARDON ME FOR NOT FIGURING THAT DAD'S ON BORROWED TIME!!
  • Storm King:... Where, is he?

Later...

  • Storm King's Father:... (Coughs)... I'm glad you're back, son! (Coughs) Your loss was too much for me to live with myself. Of course, losing Undergrowth didn't help, but, it wasn't a true surprise. It was a matter of time before those bug horses turned on him for his abuse. He was never really that smart of a boy. But your defeat... It was both a sour thing for our family, and this frail heart, to accept.
  • Storm King:... But father, I'm here now!
  • Storm King's Father:... It's... It's too late. The afflictions have become fatal. I... I asked Valkyrie to revive you so you can honor our conqueror legacy. Unsurprisingly, she was still butt-hurt about your victory, but, family obligation is something she still respects.
  • Storm King: I noticed. But... Where's the Staff of Sacanas?
  • Storm King's Father:... The ponies... They smashed it after they killed you. It's amazing how something so cute can really indignify our kind if you provoke them badly enough.
  • Storm King:... PLEASE TELL ME TEMPEST DIED TOO! SHE SURELY TURNED TO COAL WITH ME, DIDN'T SHE?!?
  • Storm King's Father: The ponies saved her. How did you think you ended up in pieces?
  • Storm King:... (Growls)... THEY DID THIS TO YOU!... I WILL MAKE THEM PAY!!! I'LL MAKE THEM ALL PAY!
  • Storm King's Father: Brave as that is, (Coughs)... You can't do it without the Sacanas Staff, nor the Obsidian Orbs! And just going there with the army will just have you banished to Tartarus like all that tried before, and fail miserably.... But... There's something that can!
  • Storm King:... What is it?
  • Storm King's Father: (He hands him his staff)... Take my staff... The Staff of Subjuncta! It's indestructible, and it's 10x stronger than Sacanas. I'm... I'm leaving you as the head of the family now.
  • Storm King:... (He grabbed the staff as the energy went through his body as he tingled)... YES!!!... Thank you father!
  • Storm King's Father:... Go!... Avenge our family!... (He finally dies)
  • Storm King: (All the Storm Creatures gave him due respect, including Valkyrie and Storm or a few seconds, as Storm King got determined)... THE STORM KING, IS BACK! (Cackles wildly as he conjured a storm more powerful than those he created)

  • Another Friendship Festival was being thrown, this time with the Lougers present.

01 We Got This Together - My Little Pony The Movie (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

  • Celestia:... Twilight, this friendship festival is looking like it will be the best ever... A pity the students and faculty couldn't join us.
  • Twilight: Well, leave it to Professor Buzzord to decided to take all of the friendship students and faculty on a field trip to the AUU with Quidilin to Equaria while a friendship festival was going on. I mean, I get where the professor was coming from, but, now the students don't get to see a friendship festival.
  • Celestia: Oh come now, Twilight. They will always have another chance to see a festival. Why, if you want, we can throw a welcome home party for them when they get back in style of the festival if you are so down about this.
  • Luna: Besides, I'm sure whatever unusual wonder of the AUU will be doubled the fun the festival can ever offer if the crazy bird's first trip to the Badlands' is any indication. And this time, if any trouble were to arise, the Heroes Act will be kept on post.
  • Twilight: I know, it's just.... I gotten so attached to them, Seven of them especially, that, it, now feels weird to be without them all of the sudden.
  • Cadence: Do I detect a case of empty nest syndrome with you, Twilight?
  • Twilight: Was it that obvious? The last Friendship Festival was to blow off the awkwardness of me and Starlight kissing under drugged influence when stopping Queen Throx, and it gave way to the arrival of the Storm King. Tempest is still out spreading word of his defeat, and we still don't know about the Storm Clan we've kept hearing about or where to start with them. Also, I must remind you that those events are still sensitive to me.
  • Cadence: Well, whatever happens, we'll go through it together.
  • Discord: (He teleports in) Did somebody call for comic relief, because DISCORD IS BACK BABYYYY!!!

  • Lord Shen:... THAT IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT WE CALLED FOR!!!
  • Discord:... Spoilsports. At least be glad I wasn't Deadpool.
  • Lord Shen: Hilarious. Now, everyone, as you're aware, this is not just an important festival, but it's also strangely and conveniently the anniversary of the Storm King's defeat.
  • Icky:... I get the distinct impression you're getting another panic attack, Shenny Boy.
  • Lord Shen: Well this 'Storm Clan' has had me concerned for a while. With the other family members we dealt with before-
  • Icky: "We've only dealt with like, only two guys from them. And they're pretty much either an outcast ruined by Stormy, or a dude that went "Yo-ho-yo-ho, the pirate's life for me" and crap, I don't think they're accreate representations of the Storm Clan's true might-"
  • Lord Shen: WELL, TWO, IS TOO MANY FOR ME?! Point is, even if it's just a fat shut-in and a piracy-loving denouncer, it doesn't change my legit concerns! I feel this is a perfect time for them to actually take action. If the Storm King became globally infamous, just imagine what his entire family can do.
  • Boss Wolf: Sir, King Thyrsus said they have been dormant for a long while. That seems to indicate that they can't freaking funtion without Stormy. The two guys we ran into that so happened to be from them, are likely, random strokes of luck.
  • Lord Shen: BW, I don't have to remind you that King Thyrsus has lost a bit of his mind because of the horrible reputation they have been given by the Storm Clan. There's no offictal promise that he would be accreate in his tampered, compromised judgement! The Panans might need to be left out for the moment.
  • Twilight: (Shows up to the group), Well, loss of mind or not, he's still leader of the Panans, and we promised that one day we'd have the Storm Clan dealt with in due time.
  • Spike: Yeah. They're just laying EXTREMELY low. We've never located them even during friendship missions to Pana.... Granted, all of, two of them, since the Panans are kinda not heavily doing friendship all that much.
  • Lord Shen: "Then how can you confidently say their absince from the only 2 times you actselly went there is any indication that the Storm Clan aren't around and about?"

(Storm King Attacks) Canterlot

  • Storm King:... WHERE IS SHINEFLARE?!? I DEMAND HER TO SHOW HERSELF BEFORE I KILL THE FIRST PONY I SEE!
  • ???: STOP RIGHT THERE! (Royal Guards came in)...
  • Pony Guard #1 HOLY S***, IT'S STORM KING?!? I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD!
  • Pony Guard #2: Aw, Geez, is the League behind this?
  • Pony Guard #1:... Questions for later! You have some nerve to drop by unnoticed!
  • Storm King: 196!
  • Guard #1: This madness has gone on long enough!
  • Storm King: 718!
  • Guard #1: You... Uh, wha-
  • Storm King: Oh, no, go ahead, don't mind me.
  • Guard #1:... You're going to be stopped!
  • Storm King: Oh, wow, 1,001, quite a too-late miss!
  • Guard #1: OKAY, WHAT THE TARTARUS ARE YOU DOING?!?
  • Storm King: Oh, sorry, it's just a little hobby. I hear these heroic speeches so wearily often, so I started making a mental list of how many times I heard certain lines.
  • Guard #1:... You sadistic bastard!
  • Storm King: 690!
  • Guard #1:... Well... We're gonna... F*** your face!
  • Storm King: Ohhh, my! 23! (The Guard got angry) TOO SLOW! (He attacked with his storm powers and knocked them all around)... Still as pitiful as you were before! Now, here's the deal, you quadruped Teletubbies, I seek Former Headmaster Shineflare!
  • ???: GET OFF OF CANTERLOT, BITCH! (Storm King fired behind him upon hearing that, and looked to see Pred and his daughters)...
  • Storm King:... Ohhhh-ho-hooo! This is a treat! The notorious non-pony slayer, Pred Judu Des, and his adopted hellspawn!
  • Pred: Well, that's only half-true now! I learned to take my fights to the actual troublemakers! I have long accepted my true role!
  • Storm King: I'll bet you have.
  • Axe-Rella: But... I thought you died by being smashed as a coal statue!
  • Storm King: Well, I've suffered worse before. I never truly die. Now, onto the chase! You happen to know where Shineflare is?
  • Chain: Oh, she's-
  • Axe-Rella: UH-UH-UH, DON'T YOU DARE TELL HIM- (Storm King zapped her)... Ouch!
  • Storm King: I'm not asking!
  • Chain: Wait, I thought it WAS asking! Sure sounded like it, too!
  • Sharp-Pay: Hate to indulge my idiot sister, but you did. But don't expect us to talk.
  • Storm King: Strangely, I had the distinct impression you're gonna be difficult.
  • Pred: Well, if you're having a problem with our customer support, you can call 1-800-eat-a-d***!
  • Chain: We don't even have any phones here! (Woody laughs)
  • Storm King:... OKAY, WHY AM I PUTTING UP WITH THIS GARBAGE?!? (They fought, but after 10 seconds, he knocked the four out)... TAKE THEM PRISONER! (The Storm Creatures took them away)... So... Anypony ELSE wanna end up like them? (All the ponies pointed at her residence)... Good! Tempest, you're coming back, one way or another! (He leaped over to the house as Shineflare was sleeping with cucumbers and mud on her face as Storm King bust in)
  • Shineflare: SONOVABITCH!!!
  • Storm King: SHINEFLARE! You have info I want!
  • Shineflare: OKAY, WHO THE HELL BARGED IN THIS TI- (She got sight of Storm King) IIIII, OH, F***, NOT YOU AGAIN!!!
  • Storm King: Yes, me again!
  • Shineflare: HOW ARE YOU STILL ALIVE?!?
  • Storm King: (Sighs) I'm done answering that question! You know what I want! Where's the one they call 'Hidden Shadow'?
  • Shineflare:... Who?
  • Storm King: (He slaps her) DON'T PLAY DUMB! YOU KNOW WHO I'M TALKING ABOUT! (Shineflare was shocked at being slapped and looked like she was about to cry)... Aw, come on, you big baby, don't tell me you're gonna cry over being pimp-slapped! I didn't even hit you that hard, you pathetic- (Shineflare entered a blinding rage that shocked Storm King) WHAA?!?
  • Shineflare: (Demonic voice) YOUR GRANDMOTHER SUCKS EGGS IN TARTARUS!!!
  • Storm King:... Daddy? (Shineflare screamed along with Storm King as she charged towards him and then her home was seen bouncing around cartoonishly as Storm King was heard screaming like a spaz with Shimeflare beating him up) NO-NO-NO-NOT MY TAIL- (A violent crunchy chomp was heard alongside a Tom scream as Muncher and Storm King's minions looked terrified) FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, HELP ME!!! (He was tossed out bald in many places)... MUNCHER, DON'T JUST STAND THERE, HELP ME!!! (Gets magicly dragged back in into Shineflare's house as the beatings continued)
  • Muncher:... So... Any one of you wanna do what you're paid to do and go in there? (The two were scared)... (Sighs) Goddamn it!
  • Guard #3:... Huh. I guess Shineflare got this covered. (Suddenly, a powerful storm blast was heard, and after a few seconds, he came out a bit scorched and missing hair, and with an unconscious Shineflare)... Or not!
  • Storm King: (He coughed smoke comically)... From what I took from this crazy horse's memory, Hidden Shadow is at Pred's residence! I didn't wanna have to use excessive force, but that stubborn mule left me no choice. And for harming me, she needs to learn some manners. (He tosses her unconscious body to them) Take her prisoner with Pred and his daughters! I've got a visit to pay!.... Also, Muncher? WE REALLY NEED TO TALK ABOUT NOT HELPING ME WHEN I ASK FOR SUCH!!
  • Muncher: Sorry, sir. It kinda looked intense and we didn't wanted to get hurt. (Storm King stared with a blank face)
  • Minion #1:... We'll... Just get going then! (The minions zoomed off comically)
  • Storm King: Now then, I gotta steal back those princesses' magic! I kinda missed the whole 'controlling the sun and moon' thing!
  • ???: Well, you want us? Come and get us! (Celestia, Luna, and Cadance arrived)
  • Storm King: (Laughs) WOW! You just came right into my clutches!
  • Cadance: You won't turn us to coal again, Storm King! This time, we're prepared!
  • Storm King: You sure? News flash, my father left his indestructible more powerful staff in my hands after he died! Since my untimely demise, my family has been crumbing, and he lost the will to live! So, as the new wielder of his staff, and the head of my family, I'M GONNA GET BACK WHAT WAS STOLEN FROM ME, AND DESTROY THE ONES WHO STOLE IT!!!
  • Celestia: Not if we can help it! (The two fought as the same music from his previous battle with the Mane Six played, and it ended with them being turned to coal again as Storm King cast a green energy spell with his staff to do so)...
  • Storm King:... Wow! You three are still as useless as you were before! Now, to get back what is mine! (He got their magic back in his staff)... FINALLY!... But, once I get the Friendship Princess's magic, it'll be complete!... BUT I STILL GET TO DO THIS!! (He plays with the Sun and Moon again) HAHAHAHAHA, I WILL NEVER GET TIRED OF THIS!!!
  • Muncher: Uh, sir?
  • Storm King: Oh, right! You know what to do!
  • Muncher: Right, sir! (He left)
  • Storm King:... (Laughs, and continues) TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, DAY, NIGHT, DAY, NIGHT, DAY-NIGHT-DAY-NIGHT-DAY-NIGHT-DAY-NIGHT, SUNRISE, SUNSET, (Laughs) I LOVE BEING EVIL!!
  • Muncher:... Yeesh, I swear, these days, he acts like a child!
  • Storm King: I HEARD THAT! (Muncher was zapped)
  • Muncher: YEEOOOOW!!! IT WAS ONLY AN HONEST OPINION, SIR, OWWWW!!!

(Later...) Storm King's Lair

  • Rainbow Dash:... Oh, great! You ape-things are angry we killed your boss? Hey, Tempest did that, not us! We would've just turned him to stone or sent him to Tartarus and be done with it. Tempest was far more experienced and didn't have the passive-aggressiveness we did. (The Storm Creatures didn't answer)... What's the matter, llama-gums? You feel embarrassed to talk to a pretty pony?
  • ???: OH, WILL YOU JUST SHUT UP ALREADY?!! (The Storm King himself appeared much to the ponies shock) I told you, I am SO over the cute pony thing!
  • Icky: Wait... Aren't you that Storm King guy?
  • Applejack: I don't understand! I thought you were dead!
  • Iago: Surprised, really. That's the closest thing to death the MLP series has gotten. Usually, the producers of the show are worshippers of the G rating.
  • Icky: Well, technically, Sombra died in the show, and in-show, he's still gonezo, so we're not really counting a certain comic the producer doesn't like talking about since he had a different fate for Lightning Dust.
  • Iago: Well, okay, the second time a villain has SERIOUSLY died in MLP!
  • Storm King: (Chuckles) A simple resurrection spell from my sister does wonders for being smashed to bits. Thanks for that, by the way!
  • Rainbow Dash: Tempest did that after you turned your back on her!
  • Storm King: Okay, look, I admit, when I did that, I underestimated her! I thought she was just in my army for her own goals, and I felt she was of no use to me any longer. But... After how much I saw she could do, including being the only one to come this close to ending me... I see I was wrong. There's SO MUCH to her I can use to my advantage.
  • Lord Shen: If you think you're gonna get away with this, monkey, then you've got another thing coming!
  • Storm King: First off, I'm a satyr!
  • Phil: No you ain't! You look nothing like one! I should know! I'M A SATYR!!! YOU LOOK LIKE THE LOST CONCEPT ART FOR THE WAMPA IN SOMETHING LIKE THAT OLD EWOK CARTOON AND BEING GIVEN A CARTOONY APPEARANCE AND SOME FANCY ARMOR!!
  • Storm King:... That's because I'm a different breed, jackass! What, do you think all satyrs are half-humanoid goats? Sometimes we tend to be mostly goat-like by nature!
  • Icky: Or in your case, look like yetis.
  • Storm King: That's because this is a world where humans rarely fully exist, or don't even exist at all, and that humanoids have more ape/creature-like features here! Heck, Tirek had an ape-face as a centaur! Ergo, I have more ape qualities than the traditional breed!
  • Phil:... Wow, do I feel like a self-racist right here!
  • Storm King: You should! Second, don't leave hope for your last-minute rescue.
  • Discord: (He teleported in) DISCORD'S IN THE HOUSE, BA- (He was trapped in an anti-magic cage)... SON OF A BUNCH OF DAMN DYING MONKEYS!!
  • Storm King: SATYR!!
  • Discord: BITE ME! Also, HOW ARE YOU ALIVE?!?
  • Storm King: Brought back to life. Basic enough. Now shut up! (They were carried off into an arena as he teleported to his personal reserved throne as his ape-like minions were managing and his evil subjects were cheering) SO, MY HUMBLE SUBJECTS, HAVE YOUR FUN, AS LONG AS I LET YOU HAVE FUN! BUT DON'T YOU FORGET, WHO IS THE BOSS! (Cackles as this song played)
Felix The Cat The Movie - Who Is The Boss (HD)

Felix The Cat The Movie - Who Is The Boss (HD)

  • Icky: JESUS GOOD GRIEF ALIVE, THAT FREAKING SONG IS ALL OVER THE PLACE!!
  • Brandy: I KNOW! It's from an awful movie that made a pointless song about foxes, why is it so popular?!?
  • Patrick: Well, it's not a bad song, per say.
  • Icky: It's a decent baddie tune, but it's also TOO basic for any worth! It's the most overtly obvious and generic bad guy song in existence!
  • Storm King: HEY, QUIET DOWN THERE!! I'm trying to enjoy my praise!
  • Discord: HAH! The only thing we're good for to keep their praise is stand-up and kicking your Monkey-Satyr ass!
  • Storm King: DON'T MAKE ME COME DOWN THERE, CHAOTIC SCUMBAG!!!
  • Discord: (He sticks his tongue at him)
  • Storm King: Now then, all my minions, our revenge is nigh. For all the years they took, for all they did to me and my family since that fateful day of October 2017, they will be the first to suffer my wrath. First the ponies, then their otherworldly friends, THEN their worldly friends.
  • Icky: Hey, Storm Coot, what did WE ever do to YOU?!? I'm pretty sure this is the first time we've seen each other IN PERSON! You died and were JUST resurrected, so it's not like we would've expected your hairy ass to come back!
  • Storm King: It's not what you DID to me. It's what you DIDN'T do to me. I will ensure you do not make these six worse of a threat than you did to the likes of Nightmare Moon, Discord, Tirek, ectera ectera, to name a few. No doubt you WILL be a problem.
  • Bagheera: Well, NOW we are since you foolishly brought us along for your revenge scheme.... (Everything was in silence)...
  • Storm King:... (He face palms himself) DAMN YOU, HINDSIIIIGHT!! Maybe I should've waited until you guys left or something! (Shrugs) Whatever, it doesn't matter! I will NOT let a mistake like that affect my title as the new head of the Storm Clan! At least you're all out of the way.
  • Muncher: I dunno, boss, these guys look like they won't stay captured for long.
  • Storm King: No s***, Shadow Spade! They're an army of misfit morons who are extremely unpredictable. I just need to do all in my power to ensure that doesn't bite me in the tail!
  • Icky: P-HAH! Good luck with that!
  • Storm King: Luck? Why would I need that superstitious bull, when I already pretty much captured the only people who are an actual threat to me? When I'm done, Equestria will see it's series finale, and through me!

(Later...)

  • Twilight:... (Sighs)... Well, everyone, we thought he was gone for good... Bit it's clear he's just getting started. We need to get outta here, find Tempest and Grubber, and ensure that we can get more than the friends we earned last time to stop Storm King.
  • Lord Shen: Agreed. That staff of his father seems more powerful than the last one.
  • Gazelle: Well, they were smart enough to confiscate my Uniter Blade, AND smart enough to do it in a way that doesn't burn. Gotta give them puntos for planning ahead for opponents like me.
  • Twilight: (Sighs)... But... I just don't feel I can do it very well.
  • Icky:... Are you still upset about-
  • Twilight: YES! Storm King's actions lead me and my friends in wild goose-chases and, though we made friends along the way, I was TOO DETERMINED TO SAVE EVERYPONY, I ATTEMPTED TO STEAL A MAGICAL PEARL FROM SEAQUESTRIA, AND GOT BANISHED FOR IT! THEN, AFTER GETTING FED UP WITH MY FRIENDS FOR BEING APPARENTLY TOO BLINDED AND NOT TAKING THE MISSION SERIOUSLY SINCE THEY MADE TWO MISTAKES IN A CELESTIA-DAMN ROW, I ALMOST KILLED MY FRIENDSHIP WITH THEM!!!... (Sighs and sheds tears)... It's like... It's like Storm King reopened the wounds I had on Gary, because it's like I can't face him without being reminded of what I said to my friends.
  • Rarity: Oh, come now, Twilight darling! We all said things we'll later regret.
  • Pinkie: Yeah, Twilight! Like I said, friends mess up sometimes. No friendship's EVER gonna be without those bumpy roads.
  • Rainbow Dash: Come on, Twi, Gilda once broke up a friendship with me and I eventually made up with her... Albeit having to have both an uncanon and a canon version, but still. Sure I gave away our position like a dumbass with a Sonic Rainboom, and resulted in Celaeno's ship being torn to the ground, but nobody important got hurt.... In fact, nobody at ALL got hurt, so no harm, no foul!
  • Applejack: Twi, we all know that you said all that at the time because you wanted to save Equestria. We all know you can't stand the idear of ever failing Celestia. Heck, you once went nuts over not being able to send a friendship report on time, so it'd make sense you would be that headstrong to not fail Equestria. Heck, yer' literally the same pony who blew her own horn up over trying to go after Pitch himself! We'd be silly ponies to not predict you would be prone to that sort've thing. I was the one to suggest we talk to ya, work out all the resentment, and try to hopefully work things out with Novo and get the help you botched up, before Tempest crashed the drama. It's like Donkey said: Forgiving each other is what friends do.
  • Fluttershy: And... It's not that we didn't take what was happening in Equestria seriously! Everypony we ever loved and cared about were as in danger as the Princesses'. It's just... Well let's be honest, that was like, what, the 100th or so time Equestria was threatened by a scary big bad? I mean, plot wise, it'd be resolved anyway, so it wasn't like Storm King was actually destined to be the one that wins. If anything, the drama with the Pearl was kinda... Needless.
  • Starlight: Oh, trust me, I myself did worse things than bark angrily at my friends.
  • Spike: Well, Twilight was only guilty of causing an international incident while causing a riff between her friends. That's NOTHING compared to reviving cutie mark faux communism with an anthropomorphic lesbian bat woman, trying to take back the town with criminal birds, ripoff bat people, and a badass cyber-dino from another dimension, and committing chronoterrorism!
  • Starlight: Besides, the point, Spike! What I'm saying is that you aren't the only one who did stupid things with your life.
  • Rainbow Dash: Besides, it's clear that even ponies not much known for combat stood up for you. I never expected my adopted sister Derpy to ACTUALLY save you from being turned to coal! It... It's a surprise to me as much as it likely was to our audience.
  • Twilight: Girls, this isn't like knocking over a punch bowl at prom! I said, IN PINKIE'S FACE, that I was better off without my own friends, because I felt THEY WERE MAKING UNWISE MISTAKES BY BEING TOO DISTRACTED WITH NEEDLESS EXCITEMENT!!! YOU TRUSTED A CAT WHO TURNED OUT TO BE A CON ARTIST! THEN, YOU LEAD TEMPEST TO US WITH A SONIC RAINBOOM! I thought for a second that I WOULD be better off doing this MY way after all that nonsense, hence why I had you distract the seaponies and hope that doing things my way would yield better results, AND LOOK HOW THAT TURNED OUT! It was that moment when the cat was out of the bag, and I HAD to justify myself. I never realized until that very moment of harsh clarity, that I was STILL fallible! I was so scared of losing everything to perhaps the most EXTREMIST EQUESTRIAN THREAT THUS FAR, that in my quest to save everypony in Equestria, I never took into account that I wasn't saving MY OWN life, both social and physical! I had to be reminded for a split second, that I never went this far if it wasn't for all 5 of you! We were more than friends! Given we got our cutie marks at the same time, AND WE JUST RECENTLY BECAME RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR OWN EXISTENCE BY STOPPING CRONUS... WE WERE SOULMATES!!! By yelling everything in the face of the one pony who gave us laughs in the worst and hopeless of situations, I realized that I couldn't save the day, WITHOUT MY FRIENDS!! Sure you made mistakes and weren't being as helpful as you were when we first met given this was the first time my home was in realistic and legitimate danger, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't trust you because you WERE doing the best you could! By blowing up in your faces when you were starting to see the raw frustration in me with that stupid choice of theft, I remembered IMMEDIATELY and AT LONG LAST, that I couldn't do anything properly without you! Do you have ANY IDEA how much that HURT when I realized what that nearly cost me?
  • Pinkie: Give us some credit, we've never been that far out of our homeland before. We had no idea of the wonders everything outside Equestria had, especially since Storm King was seeking to take all of it for a quest of world domination.
  • Rainbow Dash: And give you some credit, nobody wants to trust people who make two mistakes in a row! But we're friends, and yes, we ARE soulmates given we're tied to each other more than we ever realized, to even EXISTENTIAL LEVELS!!! WE INSPIRED OUR OWN PARENTS TO GIVE BIRTH TO US AFTER SAVING THEM TOGETHER IN THE PAST!! That's cosmic friendship right there, and CERTAINLY inseparable!
  • Applejack: Not to mention that Tempest nearly got to ya thanks to that.
  • Twilight: (Sighs and sheds tears)... I... I just don't feel like talking about it. (She sobers up and literally absorbs her tears back into her eyes) I can't show weakness right now. We gotta get outta here!
  • Patrick: Twilight, you're never gonna feel better until you get that thing off your chest! (A lamprey-like parasite was seen sucking on Twilight's chest)
  • Twilight: WHAT THE- WHERE DID THAT LANDFRY COME FROM?!? (She smacked it off)
  • Squidward:... Don't you have to go somewhere else to be stupid?
  • Patrick: Not until 4:00!
  • Starlight: So, Twilight, for our sakes, can you please not let the past hold you back?Because it's exactly what someone like the Storm King would want.
  • Twilight:... (Sighs)... Everyone... Look, it's not that I'm scared of doing it again. Not everything has to be serious business. I'm just scared of doing it again with MORE than my friends. I'm afraid of letting everyone I ever fought for even beyond our homeworld down, including you and the High Council. There's bound to be more outside Equestria, and... If I allowed myself to be destroyed in the same way I did with Gary through people I had STRONGER bonds with... I just couldn't live with myself.
  • Pang Bing:... Twilight, I get what you're saying. When I first met the Lodge, I thought they'd never amount to anything. They were all idiot misfits to me.
  • Twilight: Well, it's not like they'd take THIS seriously without getting sidetracked!
  • Banzai: Uh, news flash, we hardly took any of our OTHER missions seriously. Sure we're idiots. But it makes it worthwhile when it discourages whatever evil scum we beat the tar out of. We discouraged an entire villain dystopia in another dimensions and made them jokes because not only were they unused to failure, but failure to a bunch of idiots like us no less. Villains there rarely have any confidence left. That's kinda the beauty of being idiots. It makes it so much sweeter to know we can embarrass our enemies after making them laugh at our misfortune.
  • Twilight:... Well, I can't help but feel, that's not gonna be enough. And if we go around making idiots out of ourselves, we won't get far, and I'll potentially make the same damn mistake. This is gonna require MORE seriousness, and nothing in your norm!
  • Shrek: Twilight, the more you try to make us change who we are just to avoid making the same mistake, the more we're convinced you don't trust us with this threat! It's nothing we haven't faced before! There's been WORSE threats than Storm King out there, and if you let this cringing fear get the better of you, it WILL cause you to make the same mistake again, AND it will be far different than any other threat!
  • Twilight: Alright, enough! We don't have time to discuss this. I don't wanna lower my own confidence. Let's just get out of here and find Tempest and Grubber! (She tries to bust open the cage)... EERGH!
  • Discord: I think this cage is made of the same metal as the minions' shields. It's clear even a magic Kamehameha isn't gonna work.
  • Po: Well, how do we get out, then? (A psst was heard as an ape minion came in)
  • Icky: WHOA! A GUARD'S WATCHING US!
  • Fluttershy:... Wait... I know that guy...

Flashback

  • Fluttershy: (When confronted by a Storm Guard)... You seem tense. Do you wanna talk about it? (Makes an adorable face as the Storm Guard hesitated)...

Present

  • Twilight: YOU PACIFIED ONE OF THEM?!?
  • Icky: This is the same pony that convinced sharks not to eat us, got a giant ground-swimming land whale to help out, talked down a dragon like it was misbehaving brat, and even befriended a bear, and you're honestly surprised she can make a guard dude friendly?
  • Twilight:... No, I'm actually not!
  • Fluttershy: His name is Monson Monsoon... (Icky scoffed) WHICH he's sensitive about, and his brother Muntz was one of the Guards who had his nails painted pink on Celaeno's ship as he started growing to us ponies. He said he was lonely and wanted a friend, and even a girlfriend, as apparently Storm King doesn't allow them in his army as it 'provides a crutch for enemies to use against them'. So I offered friendship, and he's been visiting my cottage every once in a while in secret, and- (The Storm Guard named Monson gave her flowers as it showed romantic feelings)
  • Fu-Xi:... AAAAND it's in love with you.
  • Rainbow Dash: Fan-tucking-fastic!
  • Discord: Again with this?
  • Fluttershy:... Uh, Monson, we need to discuss that bit later. Right now, can you help us out? (Monson started to do jestures)... Why aren't you talking?... (He made jestures)... Ohhh, you're shy to speak to me after the crush thing. Well, I guess we can work that out later.... Anyway, you say you would like to, but your superior has been suspicious of you lately?
  • Icky: Oh, great! The Head Guard's been eyeing him for being weird! Just great!
  • Fluttershy:... Speaking of which, who's the Head Guard since Tempest reformed? (Monson communicated)... Wait... Grubber has a brother? (Monson spoke)... Oh, that little guy near Storm King! Muncher.
  • Iago: Why am I not surprised that a guy related to a dude named 'Grubber' would have a name that's ALSO food related?
  • Fluttershy: (Monson chuckled and made noises)... Apparently, the family was the town gluttons. They were bakers, too. Many of them died from the results of such. Poor things. The family was very troubled. They had little hopes and had ranged lifestyles. In the case of Grubber and Muncher, it's to serve the Storm King.... So... What's the story of Muncher? (Monson spoke to her)... Oh, my! He did that?... How awful! Apparently Muncher left Grubber into the alleys for accidentally ruining his life, changed his mind when he came to serve Storm King... Then went back THEN when he reformed.
  • Rainbow Dash: SERIOUSLY?!?
  • Lord Shen: Ouch!
  • Icky: OOOH!
  • Sparx: What an asshole!
  • Fluttershy: Well... Whatever happens to you, we... We can stand up for you. In fact... If you help us find Tempest and stop Storm King again... You can live with me.... Provided you can control your apparent crush. I... Have a long flirt history. (Monson sighed and spoke)... Thank you! Sorry if this upsets you, but I'm not ready to fall in love, nor do I know when or if I ever will. (Monson hugged her as her cheeks squished)... Now... Can you get us out? (Monson did so, and signaled them to follow it)...
  • Twilight:... I gotta thank you for this sudden case of karma, Fluttershy.
  • Fluttershy: It was nothing, really. Now let's get out of this scary place.
  • Icky: Exit from immature weather dork's lair, stage left! (Twilight sighed as they left)

The Villain League's New Interests

Storm Kingdom

  • Storm King: (Sighs) I told you, Muncher, they never stay captured! Surprising it came from that one minion who went soft thanks to that adorable yellow pony whom he ACTUALLY HAD THE BALLS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH! Monson was always an oddball and a socially-awkward twat, but still!
  • Muncher: Well, what do we do?
  • Storm King:... I didn't want it to come to this... We may have to think outside the world for this.
  • Muncher: What do you mean?
  • Storm King: Call in... The Lodgers' archenemies!
  • Muncher:... You don't mean-
  • Storm King: Yes! Bring in, the Villain League!
Dramatic Impact 3 - Ren and Stimpy Production Music

Dramatic Impact 3 - Ren and Stimpy Production Music

  • ???: That won't be necessary! (Cobra, Chrysalis, Hades, and Mirage came in)...
  • Cobra: Because we have been looking for you since 2017, Storm King!
  • Mirage: And your sister spared us the trouble of resurrecting you, for that matter.
  • Storm King:... THESE are what those 'demon worshippers' as people call them, look like? Wow!
  • Cobra:... Well, at least he didn't call us that straightforward!
  • Mirage: I still say he'd be an embarrassment.
  • Storm King: Well, given what you've likely heard, you know about me, and what I'm stuck in?
  • Mirage: Though we are disappointed that you blew your cover by exposing your intentions through capturing the Lodgers, your newfound power through your recently-deceased father's staff grants us a chance to finish what we started the first time we attacked Equestria.
  • Hades: We admit, we didn't know much about the rest of Equestria besides the Mane Six's lands. But with you... We may just have it!
  • Storm King: Do know, I do not wish to join you unless we have a proper understanding compromise. I consider myself only a benefactor to you!
  • Chrysalis: Heh, you got spunk, Stormy! I like that! You're also just as cunning as my mother, only with a blend of faux. You're like Hades despite having the voice of an adult-oriented actor. When I heard of you, I thought you'd be a ruthless tyrant who had no negative quirks whatsoever... But now that we meet you, you're like Liev Schreiber if he voiced Dragon Ball Z Abridged Frieza.
  • Storm King: Hey, what you see is what you get! Deal with it! Now, let's lay down the terms.
  • Cobra: Terms?
  • Storm King: Yes! I know your kind! I've been watching you since before 2017. I know your strengths and weaknesses. Just know that you need to earn my respect if you wish for me to be a new member. First off, I am not that fond of Darkspawn, because let's just say, last time I dealt with something of their origin... It didn't end well.
  • Chrysalis: I'm going to assume you had a quarrel with Grogar and/or Baphomet?
  • Storm King: WE DO NOT SPEAK OF GROGAR OR HIS FAMILY, EVAH!!!! (Everyone was surprised)... (Sighs) Lucky guess! That old goat was one of my earliest shots of conquering Equestria as it's first emperor, but he turned me down and almost turned me into a Panan Storm Rhino, saying he could do what I did 100x better because he had what made you guys special: Darkspawn magic. I do not fraternize with him because of that. He could take over the Storm Clan if he could.
  • Cobra: Yes, even if we said he's better than you, Grogar and his family doesn't play well for us either.
  • Chrysalis: TRUST us!!
  • Cobra: They tend to backstab their allies when they least expect it. Grogar turned his back on us when he dubbed us 'unworthy of Darkspawn allegiance'. Heck, Baphomet killed three of his own commanding officers for their first and only failure! And their grudge-holding is infamous to the point that logic is thrown out the window even when their end goal ends up not being worth it in the end. And besides, a benefactor that provides knowledge of the ways outside Equestria's borders is better than nothing at all. Consider the first term accepted.
  • Storm King: Excellent! Second: I must lead the way of this plan. No offense, but whenever you all are involved, you end up embarrassed by even a little Alicorn baby.
  • Mirage: Hmmph! Far too bold!
  • Storm King: So, if you want my aid, you do as I say. I am not asking to be part of the Council or a higher power! I am saying that, as the one who nearly beat 6 mares and a tiny dragon, and lessened the spirit of an Alicorn princess, I am the superior strategist.
  • Hades: Well, I suppose it's fair enough. Accepted.
  • Storm King: And last but not least: You'll need to step up your OWN game. No screw-ups! No setups, no setbacks, no incompetence! If even ONE screw up is reported, then the deal is off!
  • Mirage:... You know? I have been intolerable to my members' incompetence as well, Mr. Storm King! Is there any way we can start in that regard?
  • Storm King: Well... I'd like to take care of the allies that aided them in my defeat. Of course, I'll deal with Tempest personally, but you all are in charge of the rest, or at least the things I turn my back on. One team will deal with that wretched Celaeno, another will help find the former residents of Hippogrifia in Seaquestria, and the rest will help deal with that cat former con artist! And I happen to know a few who would like to see them suffer. (He brings them slips)
  • Cobra:... Captain Blot?
  • Hades: Verko?
  • Mirage: Squirk?
  • Chrysalis:... What about them?
  • Storm King: I didn't go around this world without learning a thing or two. Captain Blot is the one responsible for the loss of Captain Celaeno's right leg on Gallapinghost Islands searching for the mythical Taiklar's treasure. Squirk is an old foe of all sea residents across this world's ocean, INCLUDING the seaponies, but he lost his main source of power, the Flashstone, as it was separated in haves thanks to the seaponies' last leader Abysswish, among other bold individuals related or otherwise, and you might need to do some odd favors so he can help you in return, and Verko? I'm sure that anthropomorphic rat would like some payback on Capper. You find them for me, they MAY provide some aid. Also, feel free to do anything else if it means slowing down those misfits.
  • Chrysalis:... Well, I don't know if getting Blot in particular will be easy, considering he's still allied to Eagle-Beak!
  • Cobra: And this Verko person? It's possible he'll accuse us as demon-worshippers and turn down our offer!
  • Mirage: And Squirk sounds like someone hard to reach.
  • Storm King: Don't worry about it. Just mention Capper, Celaeno, and Seaquestria, and you certainly won't have a bit of trouble. Trust me, everything will be fi-

Later...

  • Storm King: They SERIOUSLY all refused?!? (The Leaguers were seen beaten up)
  • Cobra: Well, Blot is no surprise given how the last time I tried to ask him to partake with the League, he basically treated me like a tease toy for that Killer Whale of his and dedicated his life to raid Villain League areas on Destiny Islands when not looking for Taiklar's treasure! But with Verko and Squirk? Even mentioning their pet peeves didn't help! Verko is too much of a Darkspawn hater to ever take us seriously, so I assumed that he was a Grogar/Baphomet victim, and Squirk is clearly someone who REALLY likes to be his own villain!
  • Storm King:... (Face palms) Uggggggh!! I knew I should've had my embassy handle that! Okay, then we're going have to improvise without those guys!
  • Mirage: Let's be honest, even if they DIDN'T hate us, they would've been smart enough to stay 500 feet away from Capper, Celaeno, and Seaquestria since their resources could've bitten them hard, especially thanks to their friendship with the same heroes capable of reducing even the worse of Equestrian threats to utter shame!
  • Maleficent: Honestly, the villain community has no proper respect to us anymore.
  • Storm King: Well, we can manage without them! Like I said, you can do anything else to slow them down. As the ones who fought them longer than me, even if it's my first time, you should provide the info I need to understand them.
  • Cobra: Well, you KNOW that this info won't come cheap!
  • Storm King: You se-
  • Cobra: We're not asking much! It's just we trade info. We give you what you need to beat the Lodgers, and in return, YOU provide US info on the outside territories of Equestria. As the one who likely molded it into the corrupt society it is as a conqueror, you should know it like the back of your hand.
  • Storm King:... Very well. It is a fair trade. The deal is done! We will be good friends yet!
  • Cobra: Maybe, Storm King! Maybe!

Aphelion Shadow/Tempest Shadow's True Story/Celaeno Arrives

Unicorn Councilroom

  • Periwinkle: Somepony attacked you?
  • Twilight: Yeah... Apparently, she mentioned Tempest! She looked like a total wreck! When we told her she was gone and Storm King was alive again... She went from a sweetheart to a warlike instinctual psycho! She... After we knocked her out, she asked for Hidden.
  • Periwinkle: (As Cometelius recognized where this was going and was worried with nervous sweating) Then bring her in!
  • Cometelius: UH, THAT WON'T BE NECESSARY! Can... Can I talk to her instead?
  • Hidden: Why, Uncle Cometelius? Do you know her?
  • Shenzi: I'd say he does, honey. And given Storm King was looking for you... They might be connected. We're bringing her in anyway. (They brought in the pony as the entire council, and Hidden, was shocked)
  • Hidden Shadow:... M... Mom?
  • Everyone: MOM?!?
  • Comtelius: Aphelion?!?
  • Donkey: DONKEY! (Shrek covered his face)
  • Hidden Shadow:... Uncle, you said she was dead!
  • Cometelius:... (Sighs) I, may have had to lie about such, because she asked me to.
  • Aphelion: I have come back with dire news concerning your mission with Storm King! This time, his power is NOT going to be any easier to beat than before.
  • Rainbow Dash: Uh, dudette, he wasn't easy to beat to begin with!
  • Aphelion: I mean, whatever same strategy you used before isn't gonna stop him. He's grown just strong enough to best even an entire army of famous misfit heroes, mainly with help from his evil family. SO NO TROJAN CAKE IS GONNA WORK ON HIM THIS TIME!!!
  • Icky: Oh, really? And what makes YOU so sure?
  • Cometelius: Ladies and gentlemen, please, it's wise to listen to her. She's Tempest's mother! (A dramatic organ choir cued)... Which in term, makes Hidden, Tempest's sister! (The organ cue played again, this time extended) Miss Pinkie, could you please?!?
  • Pinkie: (Playing the organ) Sorry!
  • Hidden: I HAVE A BIG SISTER?!?
  • Cometelius: Look, Hidden, honey, you were in the orphanage since Aphelion and Tempest disappeared. Since your father died, your mother and sister tied his murder to none other than the Storm King. He responded to the devastation of Panthera... But he never came back.
  • Aphelion: So I had to go and avenge him... But next thing I knew, it was a trap!

Flashback

  • (Aphelion): I was hoping to rescue my husband and your father with a very efficient stealth mission. However, all I found... Was his hung body... And the Storm King waiting for us, causually just sitting there as if it's just business as usual! It was very embarrassing to walk into what was obviously a trap. We barely made it out with our lives... Or at least, I did. Tempest didn't make it. I couldn't remember how since the impact I took left me with amnesia, but I thought... I thought they killed her too. But later on, I discovered witnesses telling that she was WORKING for Storm King, as a slave. I tried countless times to save her, but all have ended in failure. Tempest was long gone, and there was nothing I could do to save her. No matter how hard I tried, even when I am an inch closer to success, I always ended up falling down the slope again, because Storm King was just too good for me. I could NEVER beat OR outsmart him. I was desperate. I tried countless times. Every time, I was outsmarted.

Present

  • Aphelion: (Sobbing hysterically)... It was utterly PAINFUL! I was doomed to watch Tempest be a mindless evil slave because her broken horn left her with no occlumency to resist Storm King's mind games. And considering MY horn was shattered, I couldn't afford to be among his most powerful forces. Storm King murdered my husband, and then took in my daughter as a slave that I could NEVER save. It was NOT FAIR! (Sobs) I WOULD DO ANYTHING TO HAVE MY BIG BABY BACK!
  • Cometelius:... Yeah, it's true, sadly. I had to keep her living status a secret, and even had to change to our maiden name to ensure it, just to protect our family for her. She's become so desperate to save her daughter, she has been diagnosed with mild PTSD.
  • Pinkie: (Blowing a balloon) What's that mean? (The balloon popped, as the pop triggered a response in Aphelion as she saw massive magic blasts, and various graphic fighting in her mind as she responded by tackling Pinkie, surprising everyone) WHA-?!?
  • Aphelion: WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER?!? TELL ME, OR I SWEAR TO CELESTIA, I WILL BLOW YOUR HEAD CLEAN OFF OF YOUR SPINAL COLUMN!!!!!
  • Cometelius:... Post-traumatic stress disorder. (As Pinkie avoided her with her party cannon) Years of failure and effort in stopping Storm King has rendered her into an emotional and traumatized wreck, who could only be cured if her daughter is set free.
  • Aphelion: GET OVER HERE, NOW!!! (She continues attacking)
  • Twilight: WE GOTTA STOP HER! (They tried to help until Aphelion outwitted their tactics) AHH!! MISS SHADOW, YOUR DAUGHTER IS- (She was kicked straight into a tower)
  • Rainbow Dash: WHAT THE HELL?!?
  • Cometelius: Her military instinct is not gonna let her take it easy on you.
  • Thunderclap: Windgust, Coldfront, Frostbite, tackle and pounce! (The three charged at Aphelion)
  • Aphelion: (She outwitted them and beat them to the ground, angry and tear-driven, and the other Lodgers attacked with all they got as she beat them up in many slo-mo cues in a Kai-like fashion, putting them in embarrassing situations, Wilhelm screams, and so on) LET MY DAUGHTER GO!! PLEAAAASSE!! (She was crying her eyes out and red)
  • Headmaster Periwinkle: (Sighs and managed to cast a spell on her that pacified her and knocked her out)
  • Iago:... WHAT THE ACTUAL SMURF WAS THAT?!?
  • Hidden: (Twilight recovered and teleported back)... Mother... What HAPPENED to you?!?
  • Banzai: C'MON, WHAT ARE YA, SOME KINDA BIRDBRAIN, SHE JUST TOLD YOU SHE'S A WAR-TORN TRAUMATIZED VETERAN WHO COULDN'T SAVE YOUR SISTER FOR YEARS!!!!
  • Shenzi: Okay, first of all, you should NEVER disrespect children! And second of all... (She knocked him down) SHE HEARD HER AND IT WAS RHETORICAL, STUPID!!!
  • Twilight:... (Sighs) Well, at least she'll be happy to know Tempest is done with Storm King.
  • Periwinkle: Yes, but she needs to be sure that's true by seeing her in person. She's not going to be satisfied until they meet once again, and given she left after leaving Storm King, she could be anywhere by now.
  • Glitterhair: She's correct. She's not going to be fully cured from her insanity until Tempest is fully free from Storm King's influence. She had to keep herself a secret to even her family to protect herself and her family in her hopeless efforts to save Tempest, and only got nothing but PTSD, a torn up emotionally-ruined mind, an anti-social life, and somepony sensitive to anything loud.
  • Pinkie: It was just a balloon popping!
  • Rainbow Dash: Anything that resembles the sound of a weapon can trigger anyone with PTSD, especially those that came out of a war. Guns, explosions, screams of pain and anguish, anything can practically traumatize them that way. Believe me, it happened to a Wonderbolt in the past and he had to be honorably retired as a result. War can torment someone more than physically if the mental trauma is strong enough. It's clear that Aphelion has been through a HELL of a lot of pain, and that bastard Storm King did this to her.
  • Baloo:... Well, what a letdown.
  • Bagheera: Indeed.
  • Lord Shen: Well, to give her credit, I have no doubt that she is most certainly a dedicated mother.
  • Icky: I, hardly call being nuts a dedicated mother.
  • Lord Shen: I meant in her persistence against impossible odds, nitwit!
  • Icky: Oh, duh!
  • Viper: Poor thing.
  • Hidden:... UNCLE, WHY?!? WHY DID YOU LIE TO ME?!?
  • Cosmoto: He pretty much said that he was asked to- (Hidden magically zipped Cosmoto's mouth up tight) MMMPH!!!
  • Hidden: THIS IS A PRIVATE FAMILY MATTER!!
  • Cometelius: Hidden, please, she didn't want you to be upset about your father's real fate and protect you from coming to fear the Storm King, as well as to see her in, THAT state. I did it to protect their image as respectable unicorns, espeically your mother. She wasn't always THAT broken mess you just witnessed and didn't wanted you to see her like that.
  • Hidden: But could it hurt to at least give me a sign? I could've gladly hidden her. I AM Hidden Shadow!
  • Cometelius: She specifically said to keep as little as possible in on the knowledge. The only ones who knew were me, Aphelion, Tempest, and... Shineflare.
  • Everyone: SHINEFLARE?!?
  • Violet Flame:... You mean to tell me... That bitch of a former Headmaster, KNEW ABOUT THIS... AND NEGLECTED TO INFORM US, EVEN IF IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE QUIET INFO?!?
  • Cometelius: Again, as less as possible had to know, to protect her. In fact... You even know HOW Storm found out about Hidden?
  • Hidden: I'm sure it's-
  • Cometelius: He found out... Because of Shineflare.
  • Hidden: WHAT?!?
  • Cometelius: Let's just say, Tempest had a personal vendetta when attacking Canterlot, besides Storm King's orders to get the Princesses. For years under his service, Tempest started regaining memories, and though they never hampered her evil nature, it gave her a secret mission that would play in Storm King's favor: Find Aphelion AND her sister, and take them in as pawns for him. She had to keep it a secret because she believed only SHE could accomplish the plan, given how Storm King didn't take plans as seriously as SHE did, especially when he lost Strife as his second-in-command and had to replace him with Grubber.
  • Twilight: And no doubt she was DAMN good at it. Apparently, before she turned the Princesses to coal with those Obsidian Orbs, and before we were knocked into the streams, she subconsciously used her broken horn to subtly disable our most adaptive spells and magical forms, like the Rainbow Power for a short moment, and merpony forms, hence why we needed to breath when we were knocked in the streams AND when we reached Seaquestria. When we hit the water, we were confused at why we couldn't breath, and we were lucky enough to survive the fall off the waterfall since wet wings can be a hamper to flight, but we used them to survive well enough, and we almost died and/or drowned. Tempest surely took us by surprise doing that.
  • Cometelius: That's what comes with military training. It grants strategy, and the ability to not only use the power and knowledge magic contains, but apply it in the right situation and ensure any backup plans are nullified. Even with a broken horn, she could read the magic activity in your systems, and knew that she needed to get rid of them with the right spell. So before she hurled those orbs, she must've made a cloaked shockwave that destroyed all those powers, and by watching you fall in the streams, she was wondering if the spell worked... Ad it did. It was the perfect opportunity to ensure you didn't beat the Storm King with the Rainbow Forms and escape through the streams with your merpony abilities, and allow you to potentially drown and die when falling off that waterfall. Plus, she had many of the Storm Guards search Equestria and prevent you from finding things like the Tree of Harmony among others and claim them to ensure you didn't find them wherever you were.
  • Rainbow Dash: Sweet Celestia!
  • Pinkie: Clever party-crasher!
  • SpongeBob: So what does this have to do with Shineflare?
  • Cometelius: My best guess is that she was searching not just for you, but for Shineflare, knowing that her weaknesses would play in her favor as Shineflare surely knew where Hidden Shadow was. And when Storm King discovered it, he managed better than we all expected, and had her spill the beans, albeit she turned out roughly and took a slap in the fact aggressively.
  • Max Cat: Dang!
  • Cometelius: Now Shineflare, Pred and his daughters, Celestia, Luna, Cadance, and Hidden are in his grasp, and he'll do anything to finish what he started, maybe trying to lure Tempest to him for unfinished business.
  • Icky: Ugghhhhhhh! He couldn't have come at a most inopportune time! Why is this guy so bad?!? Can't we just Rainbow Nuke his ass and be done with it?!?
  • Glitterhair: As long as he has his father's Staff of Subjuncta, which is supposed to be indestructible and 10x more powerful than the Staff of Sacanas, 'Rainbow Nuking' is currently not an option.
  • Icky: Figures!
  • Twilight:... But here's what all this DOESN'T explain: What does this have to do with the past where she lost her horn to an Ursa Minor and lost her friends, and for the fact that she claimed her real name was Fizzlepop?
  • Periwinkle: Actually, that's what she was since the mission against Storm King. We're not sure of the details of what happened to her since Aphelion lost memory of that, but whatever happened, she wasn't killed nor captured, nor was Storm King the reason why her horn was destroyed. Her time in Drungar and her many other names were actually ALSO the result of memory loss as the attack left her to be hit in the head to result in her forgetting her name and past life. Thus, she lived there, lost her horn to an Ursa Minor, found the Misfortune Malachite in a quest through the Bone Dry Desert, and was tricked into serving the Storm King.
  • Twilight:... Did Aphelion know?
  • Periwinkle: She had yet to learn of Tempest's foster life. Even Storm King tried to keep this a secret from her, and he was always successful at that, especially with her PTSD, and her vulnerability to mind-tricks.
  • Rainbow Dash: Well, BOOM! We got what we need to beat Storm King... Or at least, keep his best bounty hunter from being evil again! Let's just tell her the truth, help her save Tempest, and be done with it.
  • Shifu: I doubt that will help completely. Given how she has failed for years to beat Storm King and rescue her daughter, she's gonna need more than our help.
  • Spike: No fricking joke there! Given how crazed she became, she's gonna need more than the obvious solution. Tempest probably misses her and Hidden as much as Aphelion does to her.
  • Twilight: Then maybe we need to understand Tempest more. And I happen to know just the ponies to ask.

School for Gifted Unicorns

  • Periwinkle: (She and the heroes arrived there)... You want to ask her friends from Drungar about this?
  • Twilight: Indeed. I doubt Spring Rain and Glitter Drops have known about her fate since they enrolled here. I remember them in my time here, so they SHOULD know me. Then again, everypony here knew me. I was the valedictorian of this school. That's why Celestia took a liking to me because I was some kind of prodigy. So they SHOULD recall knowing her but don't exactly know what happened since they left to come here.
  • Patrick: What makes you say that?
  • Twilight: Well, they only know her as 'Fizzlepop Berrytwist', and WE know her as 'Tempest Shadow'. They CLEARLY don't know they're one in the same.
  • Periwinkle: Well, this does seem to make sense. If we want to ensure Aphelion is snapped out of her unfortunate insanity, we need to find Tempest, and hopefully we can do it through her friends. Though they don't know Tempest, they know Fizzlepop, and since the two are tied in many ways, they SHOULD provide ways to not only help us find her, but find her before Storm King does, and hopefully tame down Aphelion's mental imbalances.
  • Twilight: Exactly! BTW, who's running the School since you replaced Shineflare?
  • Periwinkle: Spellstone Quirk. My best friend.
  • Twilight:... Wasn't he once the principal?
  • Periwinkle: When you were enrolled, yes. But as of recently, he was the vice-superintendent and now, since I became Headmaster, he took up the mantle while a teacher named Specter Tone became principal. And you know how good he is at magic. He's already started to teach his teenage daughter Nix fluent magic.
  • Icky: 'Nix'? Isn't that from ANOTHER brony fanfiction? The one with that little black filly incarnation of Nightmare Moon? What was it called?
  • Twilight: Past Sins?
  • Icky: Yeah, that!
  • Periwinkle: Well, one, THAT Nix has a 'Y' in it. Two, Nix wrote the story and published it. It was critically-acclaimed and everyone said to have cried after reading it. It really touched my heart too. She's just as smart as you and Starlight combined.
  • Twilight: Really?

School Superintendent Office

  • Spellstone: (He was a faded-yellow Stallion with glittering purple and gold hair, glasses, and a glowing magical gemstone for a cutie mark) Yes indeed! Little Nixie Quirk has been valedictorian of her class for a long time.
  • Twilight:... I guess that's impressive. I was a valedictorian too.
  • Spellstone: Oh, yes, I remember you, Twilight! You were something special to the Princess! Now, Nix is seeking to become great, and actually admires you. She liked the Friendship stories you published, and actually helped quell down critics... Sorta. But at least not much harm was done.
  • Twilight:... Well... That's nice. Where's Spring and Glitter?
  • Spellstone: Don't you remember? They graduated last year!
  • Twilight: Oh... Heh... Being away from my home for years has left me out of my element. I hardly even recognizes it now.
  • ???: Oh, I can take you to them, Princess Twilight! (An adolescent beautiful pony with a dark coat, space-colored dark-blue hair, and a crazy cutie mark of magic swirls around her body were seen)
  • Boss Wolf: WHOA! You gotta fancy mark too? We haven't see THOSE since we saved Zodiac, Tootaloo, and Fancy Free.
  • Twilight: You're telling me. It's such a rare occasion.
  • Spellstone: Exactly. I knew she was a special girl back before she earned it.
  • Nix: Princess Twilight, I'd be happy to help you find Spring and Glitter! They're good friends of mine! Then again, everypony's a friend of mine here! They ADORE me, give or take a few jealous bullies of course.
  • Twilight:... Well, where are they?
  • Nix: Oh, I heard they went back to Drungar after they graduated.
  • Boss Wolf:... WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?!? We have to go BACK TO TEMPEST'S ADOPTED HOMETOWN TO FIND THEM?!?
  • Twilight: Wait... As in the rundown multi-racial town in Equestria where Twilight dealt with some aid after her adventure with stopping Storm King?
  • Periwinkle: Apparently, that was NEW Drungar. OLD Drungar was outside the bounds after Storm King did some plundering and nearly wiped out the pony population there searching for a scapegoat before Tempest came. It was the closest pony-populated place to the Storm Castle. Tempest reportedly went there, and had some problems with money, as she lost it thanks to a hole in her pack, and since she couldn't pay for her food, she had to work out the debt, and didn't just do so, but got enough money to get out of there feeling she didn't wanna deal with trouble like that. She DIDN'T appreciate what remnants of Old Drungar made it.
  • Twilight:... Plothole, fixed.
  • Boss Wolf: BUT IT'S STILL AGGRAVATING WE HAVE TO GO ALLLL THE WAY OVER THERE! GIVEN THOSE RAGING STORMS, THAT REQUIRES EFFOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRT!!
  • Iago: So does WHINING, dumbass!
  • Nix: Hey, relax! It's just a teleportation away!
  • Lord Shen: I don't know if you've noticed, Miss Quirk, but... Storm King could've targeted that place in order to get to Tempest. He'd be smart enough to consider she'd go back home after reforming.... Then again, they could be in danger.
  • Nix:... In that case, I think they need help! WE MUST GET THERE! HOLD ON TIGHT! (She charged her spell as it teleported them in a split second)

Old Drungar

  • Twilight: (They arrived there, finding a quaint village being threatened by a powerful storm and Storm Guards)... THEY'RE ALREADY HERE?!?
  • Cynder: Hey, it IS close to the Storm Castle, Are you honestly surprised they got here before us?
  • Twilight:... No, I'm actually not!
  • Spyro: Then the party just got started!
  • Pinkie: I am normally against crashing parties... (Brings out a party tank) BUT THIS IS AN EXCEPTION!! Thank YOOOOOOOU, Cheese Sandwich for this birthday present! (The Storm Creatures saw that, freaked out and stopped their attack and surrendered unconditionally) Yeah, you BETTER be scared, you big bullies!
  • Icky:... Well apparently we just encountered their coward platoon!
  • ???: WHERE IS THE ONES NAMED SPRING RAIN AND GLITTER DROPS?!? (Valkyrie was seen wearing her robes still and holding two ponies)...
  • Pony #1: I DON'T KNOW! I HAVEN'T SEEN OUR SWEET GLITTER IN YEARS!!!
  • Pony #2: ME NEITHER!!
  • Valkyrie: DON'T PLAY DUMB! THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE GRADUATED AND RETURNED HERE SINCE THEN!!! AS GLITTER'S REPORTED PARENTS, YOU KNOW THAT!!! SO, TELL ME, OR YOU'RE- (She suddenly gets zapped in the butt and screams like a man and lets them go) OW, MY ONE GOOD ASSET!!
  • ???: FINISH THAT SENTENCE!! I DARE YA!! SEE WHAT HAPPENS!! (Two familiar ponies, one with a blue coloration and pink eyes and a flower-based cutie mark, and another with minty coloration and faded purple eyes and a star-and-comet-based cutie mark were seen)...
  • Valkyrie:... So, you two the ones we're- (Saw that the guards cowardly surrendered to the heroes)... (Sighs, to herself and writes something down) Note to self: Have these p*****s shamefully retired! (Openly) Make that, you two are the ones I'M looking for?
  • Blue Pony: Yes! I'm Spring Rain, and this is my wife, Glitter Drops!
  • Mane Six: Wife?
  • Starlight: They got married?
  • Nix: Well, goody for them, I never would've guessed they were in love!
  • Minty Pony (Glitter Drops): You've got some nerve to attack this place like you own it!
  • Valkyrie: (Cackles) And exactly what're you gonna do about it?
  • Blue Pony (Spring Rain): (The two got determined, and united a love-based spell that formed a heart)
  • Valkyrie: HOLY CRAP, YOU'RE ACTUALLY GONNA DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!? I WAS ONLY BLUFFING, I THOUGHT YOU WEREN'T ACTUALLY GONNA- (In a similar fashion to the first defeat of the Changelings, they were knocked out of the village) FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiiiiight... (Echos are heard as she was sent flying as a distant crash was heard)... OW, MY ONE GOOD ASSET AGAIN!!!
  • Icky:... Well that was easier than realistically expected.
  • Spring Rain: AND DON'T COME BACK!
  • Glitter:... WE DID IT! OH, SPRING, YOU WERE AMAZING! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
  • Spring: I love you, too! (The two hugged and kissed)
  • Glitter's Mother: Uh, Glitter? (She points out the heroes)
  • Spring:... Oh, my! I, am SO sorry, this isn't a good place to show my love! I-I-I am so sorry, honey!
  • Glitter: It's okay, hon, I'm sure they gotten used to it. They sure look like they have.
  • Gilda:... Eh, you're not wrong.
  • Glitter's Father:... We'll just leave you guys alone to chat! We got some damage to clean, anyway. (They went back inside)
  • Twilight: So, you two are Glitter Drops and Spring Rain?
  • Spring:... TWILIGHT?!? OH MY GOLLY-WOLLY-GOSH, IT'S BEEN YEARS!... AND YOU'RE AN ALICORN?!?
  • Glitter: My goodness, Twilight! You look like you've went places!
  • Nix: Oh, they have, you two lovebirds! But... We have matters to talk about.
  • Spring: Does it involve those brutes that attacked us?
  • Glitter: AND this wicked storm? (The storm was raging with thunder and lightning)
  • Nix: (Giggles) No, they were just travelling thespians and/or actors researching for a role, and that's special effects!
  • Glitter: We are no strangers to sarcasm. What were they doing?
  • Twilight: Are you familiar with a pony by the name of... Fizzlepop Berrytwist? (Spring and Glitter gasped to their surprise)
  • Spring: F-F-F-F-F-F-F-F-F-F-F-F-F-F-Fizzy?
  • Glitter: Uh-duh-uh, uhhhhhh... NOPE! Never heard that name in a bajillion years! (Nerviously laughs)
  • Applejack:... Seriously?
  • Spring:... Okay, as you can tell, since she left, we didn't want anything to do with her. She... She did something bad, because she felt... She felt we abandoned her since she lost her horn and made her become an independent sociopath who feels that we ponies are inferior, even though we told her it wasn't anything personal!
  • Glitter:... Yeah... The last time we saw each other... It was rather hostile.
  • Icky: We can tell with your piss-pants reaction to her name. How ironic something that sounds cutesy and- (Scoffs) Laugable, makes someone jolt in fear. I can see why she switched to Tempest.
  • Spring: Wait... Tempest? As in COMMANDER TEMPEST OF THE STORM KING'S ARMY?!? FIZZY WAS HER?!?... I admit, we didn't see Commander Tempest in person OR picture, and we can see why.
  • Glitter: Yeah. We would've recognized her. But... (Sighs)... We wish we were as supportive as we thought we were to her.

Flashback...

  • (Glitter): Despite what she thought, we were actually as supportive as we could be... But not enough, apparently. We preferred to stay away from her out of fear she'll hurt more than herself... We didn't realize that... That left her in a life of loneliness.
  • (Spring): So... When we were signed up to be enrolled for Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns after passing our entrance exam before the deadline passed and went on our way through the metro station... Fizzy wanted to say goodbye and hopefully tie her loose ends. But... It turned out... Hostile.
  • Tempest: SPRING! GLITTER! WAIT UP!
  • Spring:.. Oh... Hi, Fizzy! You come to say goodbye?
  • Glitter: And uh... How is your horn?
  • Tempest: (Sighs)... As it still was when you... You... (She sobbed)... YOU LEFT ME ALL ALONE!!! (She cried)
  • Spring: WAIT, LEFT?!?
  • Glitter: WHY WOULD YOU THINK WE LEFT YOU?!?
  • Spring:... Didn't you say we avoid her most of the time after she got the injury?
  • Glitter:... Oh, crap! (Tempest was saddened)... Fizzy, don't take it the wrong way! We figured you moved on since your dreams of joining us in Celestia's School were practically dashed thanks to that Ursa Minor.
  • Tempest: BUT... BUT WHY WEREN'T YOU THERE TO COMFORT ME?!? I CAME HERE IN THE HOPES THAT YOU'D SAY A PROPER GOODBYE AND WASH AWAY ALL THESE BAD FEELINGS OF MY DREAM BEING RUINED! BUT... YOU TWO CLEARLY LOOK LIKE YOU'RE SCARED OF ME!!!
  • Spring: IT'S NOTHING PERSONAL, OKAY?!? WE STILL CARE ABOUT YOU!... WE... WE JUST DON'T WANNA BE-
  • Tempest: WHAT?!? TURNED INTO A CHICKEN?!? ZAPPED TO A CRISP?!? (Her broken horn charged up uncontrollably as ponies noticed in fear) I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!!! I WAS LONELY AND SHUNNED FOR SO MANY YEARS SINCE I LOST MY HORN!!! (Her eyes were tearing up) I FELT LIKE I COULD NEVER HAVE A FRIEND AGAIN!! I... I...
  • Spring: WE DIDN'T MEAN IT! REALLY!!
  • Glitter: FIZZY, PLEASE!
  • Tempest: (She was struggling to hold back her tears as it caused her magic to build up)... I... I... IIIII...
  • Spring: FIZZZYYYYYY!!! (Tempest finally broke down and cried hysterically as the magic released caused untold magical chaos that caused panic)... FIZZY, WE'RE SORRY!!

Present

  • Glitter: She really took it hard.
  • Fluttershy:... Oh, dear!
  • Spring: Oh, yes! You ever see a young unicorn with a broken horn crying in a mental breakdown when not in control of their own power?... It's a bad scene.

Flashback...

  • Tempest: (She had leveled the entire train station as she was sitting and sobbing pitifully and ran off crying while causing more chaos, as Spring and Glitter felt guilty)
  • Glitter:... What have we done?
  • Spring: GREAT, now I have guilt!

Present

  • Spring:... Well, we called for Celestia to pick us up afterward and explained what happened. We... We wanted to honor her by being the best we could. And just last year... We did! And... Our time in the School made us realize... How much we loved each other.
  • Glitter: (Giggles) Yeah, I kissed you first because you were too scared to make the first move. I loved the fact that you had sensitive cheeks, and that just made kissing you just laughable.
  • Spring: (He blushed wildly) I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU TOLD THEM THAT!!!
  • Glitter:... And, since we graduated, and got married on the same day, we went back to Old Drungar to make ponies and any non-pony inhabitants forget about the chaos Fizzy was in, AND after the Storm King died, we hoped it would be over for him and his family.... We... Just didn't expect to hear that... Fizzy was Commander Tempest AND Storm King would be easily resurrected!
  • Nix:... Well, you might wanna know that Old Drungar... Was not where she was born. Tempest, is actually her REAL name!
  • Spring/Glitter: WHAT?!?
  • Nix: Apparently, she ended up in Old Drungar after trying to avenge her father for his murder in the hands of the Storm King, and lost her memory.
  • Spring:... That explains a lot!
  • Twilight: What? How'd she end up here?
  • Spring: Apparently, seaponies rescued her from drowning and sent her to Old Drungar, the nearest location of ponies where they found her. Just... Laying there unconscious with a bruised head, a dead-pan poor soul who went through a lot. They had her in an orphanage, where she lived her remaining childhood years, and she lived until that magic discharge incident.... We didn't really know how she ended up in the water, and neither did the seaponies who rescued her... But, she looked like she had been through a LOT!
  • Rainbow Dash: Oh, she was! Her mother is a war veteran who has been failing to save her from Storm King since she got amnesia.... And now, she's a war-torn wreck.... Speaking of which, where is she? (They noticed hoofprints going in the direction of the Storm Army)...
  • Donkey: AW, SON OF A BISCUIT-EATER!
  • Gloria: UGGH! SHE WENT FOR STORM KING, SHE'S GONNA GET HERSELF KILLED!!
  • Melman: Wh-wha-wha-wh-w-w-what're we gonna do?!?
  • SpongeBob: I got this! (Extends his arms out to reach for Aphelion)... Yeah, I got nothing, she's already miles away, so we likely won't be able to catch up.
  • Merlin: I got it! TELEPORTUS! (It didn't work)...
  • Nix:... I think she anticipated we'd try and teleport her back, and ensured only SHE can do that. Not to mention... She might have some jinxes to ensure we don't teleport to her.
  • Merlin:... DARN IT! CURSE HER AND HER MILITARY INTELLIGENCE!!!
  • Icky: Welp, she's boned. Nothing we can do.
  • Nix:... Or... She'd be kept alive, and reveal Hidden's location, and have her captured, and allow him to FINALLY have hostages to lure Tempest out.
  • Spring: Oh, dear! What has she done to herself?
  • Glitter:... Well... What do you want from us?
  • Shifu: Since she was freed from Storm King's control, she left with her new friend Grubber to try and redeem themselves in the eyes of those she terrorized for him. We need to know where they'd likely go.
  • Spring:... Well, we liked to go into the Pleasant Woods. It's a splendid place of paradise. We did many fun activities there with our magic back before Fizzy lost her horn. Know that it's the same place she lost it when trying to get our ball back from that Ursa Minor, so there should be a population of them.
  • Twilight: I dealt with one already. All we need to do is pacify it and bring it back to it's Ursa Major mother.
  • Glitter: OH, GOD, THOSE! If Fizzy encountered THAT, she'd lose more than her horn! SHE'D BE DEAD MEAT!
  • Spring: But where there's an Ursa Minor, there's DEFINITELY an Ursa Major. So... Word of advice, keep an eye out for them if you wanna find clues as to what she'd do. We heard that's where she went to drown her sorrows within a cave behind a waterfall, and it's where she wrote her life story on the cave walls.
  • Glitter: We... We never had a look at it yet, because without Fizzy to show us where, we don't know where she'd be ourselves. So, yeah, best thing to do next is to find the cave.
  • Spring: We'd like to help ourselves, really, we are good protectors... But... We'd like to just make it up to her, because... Let's be honest, given we now know she's Commander Tempest... We'd wanna stay away from her for MORE reasons than her uncontrollable magic. So all we can say is... Good luck out there.
  • Skipper: I'd complain about you two going nancy cat on us, but we weren't planning on asking for your help. You gave us the info on what we wanted anyway. Besides, there's a rule about taking civilians and/or easily avoidable future hostage situations from a mile away on board to a Lodger mission. Ya weren't coming either way.
  • Spring: We figured that was why you came. We may be good protectors, and thus more than citizens, but... Hey, we've had enough excitement for the day, right hon?
  • Glitter: Yep! (The two kissed)
  • Icky: Well trust me, we're mainly here to get answers, and we did. You two go enjoy yourselves.

(Later...)

  • Celaeno:... You have NO idea how much it took to get outta there with the new power Stormy had! My homeland has been taken by him.
  • Rainbow Dash: Get in line, he's surrounded every place in and around Equestria to find Tempest, wherever she is.
  • Twilight: (Sighs) If only she hadn't left Equestria for a redemption trip, then we would've solved this earlier.
  • Celaeno: Well, lucky for you, I happen to have seen her somewhere in the lands far across the Undiscovered West and beyond the Luna Ocean.
  • Applejack: Aw, daggit! Nopony's ever come back from there, either alive or because they didn't want to. The place is said to be filled with a lotta terrors and wonders.
  • Fluttershy: It makes sense why she'd go there to redeem herself.
  • Mullet: And ah reckon she's gonna end up the same if we don't do something.
  • Boyle: Plus, Stormy ain't gonna let any hazards stand in his way.
  • Celaeno: So, what do you little ponies and your buddies say? Wanna be awesome again?
  • SpongeBob: Well, we'd be happy to! This place can't be as bad as anything Shell City had to throw at us.
  • Twilight: And given what we saw in Tempest's Cave, we may have clues as to how she'd hide, survive, or even take risks, and even where she'd be.
  • Shrek: Then I take it we're up for another quest!
  • Donkey: Hells yeah, that's what I like to hear! Lodgers and Ponies on another whirlwind adventure.
  • Celaeno: Keep in mind that, with Storm King's storms plaguing the world, we'll have to take a LOT of detours. It'll be hard to find her with them terrorizing the skies. Even the Pegasi apparently have a tough time quelling them. (The Pegasi were seen struggling and being knocked down by the Storm King's storms)... Plus, given Storm King will go after your allies, Klugetown and Seaquestria will no doubt be targets, especially with the hippogriff survivors rebuilding Hippogrifia. That newly-forged staff of his is no doubt gonna cause trouble given that it's now 10x stronger than his last one.
  • Icky: My butt can tell! I'm still feeling that literal sick burn he gave me when we were trying to escape! He was actually worse than that fat brother of his from Season 3!
  • Celaeno: Why do you think he got this far? He's the top sibling of the family as the others left his kingdom long ago. Looks like you all are gonna explore more outside of the borders of Equestria.
  • Boss Wolf: Then what're we waiting for? There's no moment to lose! (They got onto her flying rainbow-winged pirate ship)
  • Max Cat: INTO THE UNKNOWN! (This music played as they cruised off)
Epic Medieval Music - Mythic Legends (Remake)

Epic Medieval Music - Mythic Legends (Remake)

  • Icky: ARRGH, PIRATES OF... Errr... EQUESTRIA'S SKIES! ARRRGH!!... (Twilight sighed as the music continued and they traveled out of Equestria, getting through the harsh storms cooked up by the Storm King)

Later...

  • Celaeno: (After the music was over)... Well, we're almost at Tempest's last reported location.
  • Mullet: She was apparently heading for the land of the Bushwoolies before disappearing!
  • Lix Spittle: Cute little critters if it wasn't for the fact they don't speak English.
  • Icky: Bushwoolies? Aren't those from the G1 MLP series?
  • Twilight: Clearly a reimaging for this series. But... I gotta ask... How did you know who the Lodgers were when we first met?
  • Celaeno: Well, I heard that they beat Captain Blot, the one who took my leg.
  • Banzai: Whoa, whoa... HE did that?
  • Celaeno: Yes! You see, I was dropping by Gallopinghost Islands for a bartending, until he dropped by....

Flashback

  • Blot: (He kicked the door down being like a smug power house as the Equestrian Pirates looked surprised to see him) All right, you lilly-livered dorks! I came all the way from Destiny Islands from another world to help build meself a crew to look for a legendary treasure! (The pirates were intrigued by this) That's right!... I'm looking for the Loot of a Thousand Realms, the iconic treasure of the legendary Captain Taiklar Blackheart, the Keyblade-wielding pirate, and the killer of the Merpony King and the Celestial King and Queen! Who's in?!?... (The pirates began to laugh like crazy)... Okay, what's the big idea? What's with the hyena imitations?!?
  • Celaeno: (She leapt over from the bar counter) Hate to break it to you, sir, but Taiklar is just an old myth. A pirate can't get a Keyblade, NOR kill Alicorns! It's an impossibility.
  • Blot: Oh yeah, lady squacker? Then explain... (Brings out and shows the map to Taiklar's hoard) THIS!! I got it from an aging pirate and a searcher of the treasure himself, before his... Untimely passing.
  • Celaeno:... Did it occur to you that the reason he wasn't able to find it prior to assumingly running into you, was because it doesn't exist? I mean, an island of tribal hamsters with dinosaurs and Aztecian antelopes? GIVE ME A BREAK! (She and the other pirates laughed, as Virgil was worried for her)
  • (Celaeno): And for thsoe of you wondering why my sister was there despite not being a pirate? She used to travel a lot with me before she settled down as a airship seller.
  • Blot: (He started to rage out and roar while banging his chest like a gorilla, stopping all the laughing)... I'M GONNA SEND YOU TO THE CRACKERBOX IN THE SKY, YOU OVERSIZED PARAKEET!! (Brought out his swords as Celaeno quickly defended herself)
  • Virgil: CELAENO!
  • Celaeno: Onealec, chill your feathers, I got this! (To Blot) Okay, you were good for a laugh, BUT I DON'T APPRECIATE THAT KINDA TALK IN MY BAR! YOUR ASS IS OUT OF HERE, YOU OVERGROWN CHIMPANZEE!
  • Blot: (Laughs) You think I'm afraid to hit a chick? (Murdock scoffed for a bit)... If anyone here should know about the legend, it'd be the legendary Celaeno I've been hearing in my time here! You've been pillaging longer than me! So, you should've come across any clues of the existence of Taiklar and his accomplishment of slaying King Nightus and Queen Heavenslight, AND KING BARRIER REEF OF THE LONG-LOST EQUANTICA!
  • Celaeno: And by that, you mean ramblings of crackpot hermits and madman vagabonds, then yeah, not the first time I heard about that garbage myth of a Keyblader Pirate!
  • Blot: Okay, fine! So maybe the High Council did a good job censoring the legend as a myth because they're EMBARRASSED about how it's actually not that hard to kill gods with the right tools and how even people like you, of all self-respecting buccaneers, would fall for it! Mock me all you want, but I can't help if I have a LOT of reasons to know better! I came here to get those clues exactly! So, I'll give you a chance: Help me and be paid heavenly, or FACE MY FURY!
  • Celaeno: You think I'm gonna fraternize with some ugly ape looking for a myth, threatening me and making a scene in MY bar?
  • Blot: ONE OF MY ANCESTORS WAS PART OF HIS CREW, YOU OVERINFLATED COCKATOO!!! I KNOW THE LEGEND REALLY EXISTS! AND THIS, IS NO HOAX!!! JUST FOR INSULTING ME AND ACCUSING ME OF BEING OFF MY ROCKER, YOU WILL PAY HEAVILY!
  • Celaeno: Hey, it's your own fault coming here and bringing that stupid myth into my bar!! But if it's a fight you want, then come and get me! (The two dueled as Virgil covered her eyes)
  • (Celaeno): Our battle took at least 9 minutes. That old ape could fight like a REAL pirate. He was tricky, I'll admit. But I held my own nevertheless.
  • Blot: (They continued fighting and she kicked at him with her right foot, as he grabbed it, and used his sword to cut it off as she screamed)... Looks like somebody's gonna be missing this! (He throws it into the ocean as it was consumed by a shark)
  • Virgil: CELAENO!!!
  • Mullet: CAPTAIN!!! (They tried to help until Blot smacked them off)
  • Blot:... Let this be a lesson, pretty bird! NEVER mess with the Master of the Seas!
  • Celaeno:... (She got angry, and she tripped him down, and using her sword as both an offense and crutch, she continued fighting)
  • (Rainbow Dash): Holy crabcakes! You were still swinging?
  • (Celaeno): I hardly showed any crutches when it came to fighting for myself. Blot was still no match for me, two legs or not.
  • Blot: You just don't know when to quit, do you?
  • Celaeno: Never! You don't just barge in and cause a scene! I'll beat you, two legs or no!
  • Blot:... Well, let's see you fight without ANY AT ALL! (He attacked, but Celaeno used her other leg to grab the sword, spin it away, and flip-kicks him, and then does so the other way, kicking him to the ground)
  • Celaeno:... You wanna keep trying?
  • Blot:... WE WILL MEET AGAIN, YOU BIG COLOR-FEST! (Runs off)
  • Virgil:... CELAENO, OH THANK HEAVENS! (She hugged her) I thought you were a goner!
  • Lix Spittle: Captain! You did it! (Everyone in the bar cheered)

Present

  • Celaeno:... He never showed up again since then, though. Must've been scared.
  • Icky: Wellll... Here's the thing. That stuff about Taiklar was-
  • Celaeno: That's how I came to know the Lodgers' existence... Aside from Onealec giving you the S.S. Blue Yonder as a cover vehicle and had her name changed to a better one like Virgil, but the first thing was my real introduction. I admit, I was kinda foolish to not recognize that Blot was right about Taiklar... Though it doesn't make him less of a dirty cheating scallywag, let alone pardon the loss of my leg!
  • Rainbow Dash: Oh yeah, you were still better off without him. And trust me, thanks to Celestia, his search for Taiklar's loot ended up not being worth it in the end as that treasure was sent back to the many worlds they were stolen from! He ended up having being on Taiklar's hate list for that.
  • Celaeno: I heard about that. It really did sounded like his quest ended up being for nothing in some way, being right about it aside.
  • Boyle: Heck yeah! Ya really put that chimp in his place!
  • Murdock: BAAWWWWWKKK!!
  • Icky: Oh, yeah! He also ended up being a golden statue for a while until Eagle Beak was able to bring him back. But we still came on top of that flea factory and his mishmash crew of animals and mythics of his! So the chance of a rematch with him's still possible!
  • Celaeno: Well, if he DOES come back, we'll be ready for him!
  • Mullet: Definitely! Being right about that legend or not, that ape had some nerve causing trouble like he did! I'm really gonna smack him good for taking Celaeno's leg!

Return to Klugetown/Meeting Chummer

Klugetown

  • The Ship was seen having crashed....
  • Gloria: Okay, that was, TOO close!
  • Gazelle: ".... This, only strenghens my resolve, to greatly punish the storm king."
  • Twilight: "..... Well, we may be side-tracked, but, I suppose we may as well seek out Capper's help while we're in Klugetown."
  • Baboon Skyship Sailor:... Ohhhh, boy! Those ponies that wrecked the town are back.
  • Crane Klugetown Nobleman: Oh, bother! And it looks like they brought friends.
  • Anaconda Skyship Sailor: If only this town still had a government, then those horses would've been banned from ever coming back!
  • Lord Shen: WE CAN HEAR YOU, YOU KNOW!! (The gossiping trio backed off and ran off in Hanna-Barbera fashion to avoid the confrontation) Yeah, that's right, you collection of backwater filth! You'd be wise to ease way from criticising us!!
  • Fluttershy: (Gulps)... It looks like Klugetown hasn't exactly forgotten our last visit.
  • Dockhag Tortoise: "HAVEN'T EXACTLY FORGOTTEN" SHE SAYS!! BLEH!! HOW THE F*** CAN WE FORGET THE MESS YOU SIX MADE?!?
  • Spike: And me?
  • Dockhag Tortoise: You don't count, small fry!
  • Spike: Yes, there's my place here, and you just put me in it, thank you!
  • Dockhag Tortoise: IF WE HAD EVEN A SEMBLANCE OF A PROPER GOVERNMENT LEFT IN OUR TOWN AFTER THAT CRAZY KINGPIN F****D EVERYTHING UP, YOU SIX WOULD'VE BEEN PUT INTO A LIFE SENTENCE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR THAT S***!!
  • Icky: AHHHHH, P*** OFF, *Smack* YA OLD DOCKHAG!! (The Dockhag fell on her back and couldn't get up)
  • Dockhag: (Struggles to get up) UGGGGGGGH!! THE NERVE!! IN MY DAY, WE RESPECTED OUR ELDERS!!
  • Icky: WELL, MAYBE FLUSH THAT S*** ATTITUDE DOWN THE TOILET WHERE IT BELONGS AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT, GRANDMA!! (Leaves the Dockhog to be on her back)... (Pinkie Pie was nice enough to help the Dockhag up despite her attitude)
  • Pinkie: I know you're too cranky to thank me, so no need! (She hops off in her trademark fashion, with the Dockhag, sailors and noblemen actually surprised by her kindness)
  • Dockhag:... No one's ever helped me back up in ages! (A smug duck mallard in a fancy suit was seen with a bored and annoyed Canadian goose secretary on a platform over some unimpressed and unenthusiastic Airship Sailors)
  • Well-Dressed Duck: And in conclusion, a vote for M. Allard Quackzackery, is a vote for a promising future for Klugetown!
  • Alligator Skyship Sailor: FORGET IT, DUCKWEED!! This town, HAS NO FUTURE!!! (The sailors walked off as Allard tried to get their attention back)
  • Allard: No-no-no, friends, wait! Wait!! (The sailors ignored him and left)... And there goes the sky sailor vote! I'm never gonna get elected as the first ever govenor of this town in YEARS at this rate and get it back to working order.
  • Goose: Ugggh, I told you time and time again, this town is without hope. The Storm Clan took the Town's Founding Leader away from this place, so hope is no longer existent, Allard!
  • Allard: Oh come now, Goosebury, I feel like I'm the only one with any sense of spirit here!
  • Goosebury: Tch, your kinda are!! The founder was turned into coal and left in the mayor's office ever since! The town's DEAD, sir! Now, it's nothing but a place to get s*** and get out! People BARELY want to actually live here, not with all the Sky Pirates and Mafias that fester in this place like a bad splinter.
  • ???: Pardon e moi? (Allard and Goosebury looked to see Rarity on the platform)
  • Allard: (Paniced Quack)! HOW DID YOU GET HERE?!?
  • Rarity: I couldn't help but notice you two were planning to get some government back into place.
  • Allard: Well, actually, yes, we-
  • Goosebury: Our politics don't concern you utopia-living ponies! Espeically not one of the six idiots that wrecked the town!!
  • Rarity: An idiot? MOI?!? Oh, nonononononononononononono! You misunderstand that fateful incident! A lot of damage onto the town were pure accidents! We were trying to escape with our lives from some pony and hedgehog nutcases who were in league with the Storm King! They had been after us since they'd tooked our land!
  • Goosebury: Be that as it may, you six didn't exactly stay, OR came back, to pay for those damages! Klugetown is BARELY, IF AT ALL, able to keep a barely-useful ecoomy as it is despite it's ghost town status!
  • Rarity: Didn't Celestia pay for those damages? We Equestrians were sure to have paid for any property damage we accidentally caused since Storm King chased us across land after land.
  • Goosebury: The conversion process is still going on. The money legally can't help Klugetown until it goes through! Along with not having a functional government any longer, our banking system is infested with lazy louts that take vacations beyond the vacation time limit! And if we WEREN'T short of a proper law and order system, we'd already have you six on trial by now!
  • Allard: Goosebury, please don't be rude!! (To Rarity) You have to pardon Goosebury, her family are renowned fruit and vegetable providers for Klugetown and beyond, and, they are in unfortunately tough times.
  • Rarity: I can certainly imagine. This place is in the middle of a desert, so it's not like anything can grow here easily.
  • Allard: It's, not nessersarly because of being in a desert, but, it contributed. It's also the fact that even the only soil that can grow found hasn't exactly seen water in ages. That, alas, is why her family business is BARELY surviving as it were.
  • Rarity: Don't worry. I understand that uncouth attitudes are, the norm here. Believe me, last time we were here, there was danger literally around every corner. Now, the main issue about your attempt to get people to vote you. Do you perhaps have a lingo to lure them with?
  • Allard: I want to make Klugetown a better place. It's plain and simple.
  • Rarity: And how, prey tell, do you plan to do that?
  • Allard: I-... Well, no, ideas specifically, but, I do plan to make Klugetown better.
  • Rarity: Well, there's your problem! You need to get their attention by demonstrating that you want to make Klugetown better through something they're concerned with! Voting campaigns NEED that. If you bring up things that are of grave concern, then you can slowly but surely earn their trust and support. It's not a quick process, I can assure you. McGruff the Crime Dog didn't end domestic crime in a single day, but he succeeded after a few years.
  • Goosebury: Who now?
  • Rarity: Mascot against domestic crime in the 70s when freedom was not being looked on properly. I, learned about him from some special friends. Point is, you need to earn the people's trust by making them agree with you through campaigns, propaganda, and make them wanna help. You do that, and you'll be getting somewhere.
  • Allard:... Say, you're right!
  • Rarity: And like Miss Goosebury said, you have a crime problem, so promise to introduce law enforcement here, because I would imagine that would help greatly for curbing Verko's weed-like influence here. And it would also be nice if you were to, well, give this town a due fixer-upper! Well, beyond a certain incident, I mean! This place obviously has an issue with durability and hazards running amuck, so I would bet that people would vote for you when you start addressing those concerns. Why... (Brings out a large diagram of Rarity's idea of a better looking Klugetown)... I even made a diagram of a more better looking Klugetown since I felt it was too, no offense, ugly and uninviting, following our escape and victory over Storm King. I was gonna give it to the official of the place, but I guess since there isn't one anyway, I suppose you can have it. Oh, and if I'm too risk-lay for the mainstream here, there is no need to credit me. You're free to claim it as your own. (Gives Allard and Goosebury the diagram). Well, I must be off! Twilight doesn't tend to handle us being distracted, especially since... Again, that time with wrecking the place, but I just felt your platform needed some extra legs to stand on. Ta! (She left as Allard and even the finally de-bored and de-annoyed Goosebury looked at what occurred)...
  • Goosebury:... I don't believe it! She... She just, handed over something that belonged to her and... Didn't even asked for credit or a price tag?... How... How... How can anyone be so... Unapologetically generous?!?
  • Allard: That, Goosebury, sounds like your mind is free from the clutter that is hopelessness and being refilled with actual genuine hope. Goosebury, it's time to get my bid for election on the road! (Goosebury looked like she gotten a bit more happier)
  • Goosebury:... I am THRILLED to do so, sir!

Meanwhile...

  • Icky: (The heroes walked through the dusty dark marketplace)... My God, this town is dirty tough!
  • Twilight: (As Rarity came in)... Rarity? Where've you been?
  • Rarity: Just felt that I, as the younger ponies would say, do this place a solid. By the time we come back here, it's sure to be dazzling and changed.
  • SpongeBob: Well, that sounds nice.
  • Sandy: Hopefully it'll help! This here town looks like it was wrecked by a twister combined with a duststorm.... A dustnado.
  • Ralth: Well, aside from the failed simile, I can agree a place like THIS needs renovations. It seems so unsanitary.
  • Twilight: Well, let's just see if we can find Capper. Hopefully, his place was rebuilt since our run-in with Tempest. (They suddenly noticed a Giant Trapdoor Spider was in a middle of a tug-of-war with a chimpanzee child and her unsentient puppy)
  • Chimp Child: LET GO OF MY PUPPY, YOU MEAN BASEMENT CREEPER SPIDER!!! (The Basement Creeper Spider snarled as it continued to try and pull the puppy over, and Fluttershy, distraught by this, flew in and gave the Basement Creeper Spider the Stare, causing it to whimper away back into the basement. The chimp child hugged her reunited puppy, as her parents saw Fluttershy had saved their daughter as Fluttershy shyfully flew off to avoid a negative reaction)
  • Chimp Dad: Wait, come back, mam! We actually appreciated what you did for- (Fluttershy was too far away)... For our daughter.
  • Chimp Mom: I bet she was too afraid that we were like everyone else is in this sad town that she was afraid we wouldn't appreciate this.
  • Chimp Dad: (Sighs)... Can't say I blame her given the incident.
  • Cockroach: (A sleazy sentient cockaroach was seen holding a bottle, beholding it for mesmerized Sky Sailors and Klugetown locals) I'm telling ya, my firends, take it from Cocoracha Jed, snake oil is a revolutionary miracle elixir that can treat even death, GUARANTEE! (Quietly) No refunds!
  • Applejack: (She noticed him and got a suspicious face, smelling the con artistry a mile away and came up) AWWWW, PHOOEY! He's obviously trying to scam ya'll out of your money with that gobbity-gook! My granny once took something simular and she almost killed herself!
  • Croc Sky Ship Sailor: (He tried it and it did nothing but make him puke)... Hey, thanks for the heads-up, little pony! LET'S KICK THAT ROACH'S ASS BACK UNDER THE FRIDGE HE CRAWLED FROM!! (He fainted as everyone did so as Cocoracha Jed freaked out and ran from them)
  • Applejack: I HOPE YA'LL LEARNED A LESSON ABOUT BEING HONEST WITH PEOPLE FROM THEN ON!
  • Tigress: I feel this place needs MORE than just a simple renovation.
  • Viper: It clearly needs law!
  • Twilight: Capper said it hasn't had such in YEARS since it's founder was turned to coal. Clearly it has difficulty getting it.
  • Po: I hope Rarity's act back there certainly helps. (They suddenly saw a scrawny sentient chicken being cornered by a duo of brutish animal thugs) HARK! A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS!
  • Rainbow Dash: Let's get em!
  • Gorilla Thug: GIVE US YER MONEY, CHICKEN, OR YOU'RE GONNA BE TONIGHT'S DINNER!!!
  • Gila Monster Thug: Yeeh, or else!!
  • Gorilla Thug: I JUST SAID THE 'OR ELSE' BIT, STULT, YOU MORON! (He slapped him until Rainbow Dash and Po charged in and charged into the Thugs, the Chicken looking in surprise of her rescuers kicking their butts and sending him running) OKAY, OKAY, YOU WIN!!! WE'LL LEAVE HER ALONE!!
  • Gilla Monster Thug: BUT VERKO WILL HEAR OF THIS, YOU SCHMUCKLEBERRIES!!
  • Gorilla: Stult, why the f*** did I have to be paired with you? (The two left as Po and Rainbow Dash noticed the chicken)...
  • Rainbow Dash:... Your welcome, Clucky! (Rainbow Dash flew off as the chicken admired Rainbow Dash)...
  • Chicken:... Senpai saved me! Yes! YES! YE-
  • Cobra Guy: Uh, I think that pony was a girl!
  • Chicken: (A record scratch was heard as she was shocked)... I'm gonna marinate myself now! (She left clucking)
  • Twilight: (Sighs)... Girls, as much as I'm for improving our reputation in this town with good deeds, can't we save that AFTER we deal with the current problem at hoof?!?
  • Pinkie: Oh, come on, Twi, lighten up! At least we're letting them know we're jolly souls, and would never totally plow a windmill through the town as it mows through an entire street while we run away in terror with a pony bounty hunter with a broken horn chasing us!
  • Icky: Pinkie, you're not really helping by reminding them EXACTLY what they're mad at you for! I mean, at least they don't know your silliest stunts like, say, when Rainbow tried to sabotage the weather factory just to keep her pet from hibernating, and Applejack's honesty making her blunt with hurtful opinions, and Twilight stealing a pearl and barking at her friends!
  • Twilight:... I swear to Celestia, Icky, if this place doesn't kill you, I WILL! This is EXACTLY the thing we don't want while stopping Storm King again! The last thing we need is painting ourselves in a bad picture. Now let's- (She bumps into a fox with a scorpion on his shoulder). Oh, terribly sorry, sir!
  • Fox: (Brian-style tone but with a bit of British sophistication) No-no-no-no, it's my fault, really! I wasn't paying attention to where I was going!
  • Scorpion: He's actually where he wants to be!
  • Fox: Skully, will you PLEASE?!? Anyway, allow me to introduce myself. Name's Mendax, and you were clearly already introdused to my dear Skully. I, am a somewhat retired con artist now wishing to change by being a tour guide for Klugetown.
  • Scorpion (Skully): He never was a tour guide, and he hasn't-
  • Fox (Mendax): SKULLY, DON'T YOU DARE!!!... Mind him, he's a bit of a jokester, that scorpion is.
  • Fluttershy: Actually, that looks like a Fact-Check-Tail Scorpion to me. They are renowned to be very honest and always speak about what their owners really think. Kinda comes with their venom that has a similar formula to truth serums, and allows them to debunk camouflaging prey. I should know, I adopted one from when it's old owner had to be put away.
  • Mendax: Oh-ho-ho, how admirable on how intelligent you are about Skully's species.
  • Skully: He actually finds that inconvenient because- (Mendax covered up his mouth)
  • Mendax: SHHHHHHHHHH!!! Shush!!!... Mind Skully, he just can't stop with his jokes! I wish to offer a FREE tour in Klugetown, a full in depth of history, and a taste of Klugetown's legendary cuisine!
  • Skully: It's actually only until Verko-
  • Mendax: IS GONE FROM OUR TOWN AND WE CAN HAVE A HEALTHIER ECONOMY AGAIN, (Sternly to Skully through his teeth) Is what you meant to say, RIGHT?!?
  • Twilight: (He looked at him with suspicion)... Uhhh, thank you for the offer sir, if that is what you're REALLY after, but, we're just here to see an old friend of ours named Capper.
  • Mendax: Oh, what a coincidence! I'm actually an old friend of his! I knew his sweetheart Senshi from out of town, AND his old scam partner Chummer. I admit, it's for the best the guy turned his life around. Even Verko is afraid of the kitty cat now.
  • Skully: Well, ya used to be friends until you blew it with him.
  • Mendax:... ("Just roll with it!") Sadly, yes! I admit that Capper and I don't see, much eye-to-eye anymore, since a bad squabble that lead to a terrible argument.
  • Skully: And that you almost let Verko have him-
  • Mendax: OKAY, SKULLY, (Sternly) You can stop with the JOKES, now!!! NOBODY HERE IS LAUGHING, SO STOP!!! (Everyone else, including Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, are suspicious of Mendax)
  • Icky: My bulls*** senses are tingling with this assclown, Iags!
  • Iago: Oh, coinky-dink, so is mine!
  • Applejack: Look, it's a generous offer, but we know our way well enough sir! We need to go- (Nile and Saltwater Crocdile Thugs and Large Python and Boa Thugs blocked their paths)
  • Mendax: Oh, but I insist! Tours are very, MANDATORY here!
  • Skully: At least until he drags ya'll to Verko's place-
  • Mendax: SKULLY, I SWEAR TO GOD, I WILL STOMP ON YOU LIKE AN ARACHNOPHOBE!!!!... (The heroes looked unconvinced at him)... Oh, who am I kidding, the cat's out of the bag at this point! (He snaps as more thugs showed up).
  • Icky: F*****g called it!
  • Skully: As did I- (Mendax put him in a sound-proof tank)...
  • Merlin: To be frank, I saw it coming a mile away! What intellectual person would trust a guy whose name is literally Latin for 'liar'?
  • Mendax: Look, I'll be firm but fair here, misfits! Verko is still rather... Scorned... With you ponies after his humiliation with that incident! The guy was burnt to a crisp by Tempest and he blames you guys for the loss of his "attractive" chest hairs.
  • Brandy: Hey, it's his fault for p*****g off a unicorn who could f*** you up even with a broken horn.
  • Mr. Whiskers: Yeah, he was sort've asking for it.
  • Mendax: Nevertheless, I've been asked to lead you bunch to him, so Verko can, vent his anger in ways crime bosses do. Nothing personal, but I rather it not be me this time.
  • Skully: (As a loris feeding Skully opening his cage to do so) Well that, and he's a gutless coward!
  • Mendax: SKULLY, I SWEAR TO GOD, IN A TRUNK, OFF A CLIFF!!! WILL YOU CEASE THIS ALREADY?!? I'M HUMILIATED ENOUGH AS IT IS!!!
  • Mantis: Buddy, you may not know this, but these ponies are with the Shell Lodge Squad!
  • Mendax:... There's a Lodge Squad, for Shells?
  • Skully: But none of ya'll are oysters or clams. Or anything with a shell for that matter.
  • Willie: Wow, when's the last time a bad guy commented on our name?
  • Icky: Who cares? Buddy, we're a gang of heroes that have been saving Equestria since before this backwater trash heap was rendered canon by the movie! No way a bunch of cheap thugs are gonna be a threat to us!
  • Mendax: Oh, no? Well how about a bunch of cheap thugs... (The thugs pulled down huge guns filled with Obsidian Orbs as the Group was surprised by this) WITH OBSIDIAN CANNONS?!?
  • Mr. Krabs: WHAT THE FLIM-FLAM?!?
  • Skipper: TIME THE F*** OUT! HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY-
  • Mendax: Hey, Verko may generally not be much for bravery, but give him credit, he's a resourceful coward! And I'll never tell where he gets this s*** from! (Skully was about to speak) NOT A WORD OR NO TREAT!
  • Pleakley: Why do you even keep him around anyway?
  • Mendax: He makes a good interrogation device, that has clear disadvantages. Now, back into the matters at hand. Gentlemen? (A Boa interrupted him, clearing her voice)... And Susan... Contain! (The thugs closed in as Starlight thought of something and looked in another direction weirdly)
  • Starlight:... Wow. THAT, is a WEIRD place for a giant unopened safe filled with unmarked money!
  • Mendax: PPHHH, those guys are too smart for the oldest trick in the bo- (The thugs excitedly looked the other way as the heroes ran off)... AW COME ON!!! YOU DUPES HAD ONE JOB!!!! GET THEM!! VERKO WANTS THOSE PONIES!! GO, GO, GO, GO, GO!!! (They scrambled off)... Fricking IDIOTS! This looks like a job for a VERY big bird!
  • Sandy: RUUUUUUUUN!!! (The heroes ran across the town as the thugs are after them and fired at them, but thankfully are lousy shots)
  • Icky: Well, thank goodness henchmen are always lousy shots!
  • Nile Croc Thug: (Using the Obsidian Cannon wrong like the others) CURSES, THEY ARE ELUSIVE!!
  • (Mendax): (Loudly on intercom) IDIOTS, USE THEM RIGHT! YOU WERE TRAINED WITH THEM, SO QUIT THE JOKE OF BAD SHOTS!! NOBODY HERE IS LAUGHING, AND THOSE WHO STILL ARE, DON'T COUNT!!! USE THEM RIGHT, OR IT'S COMING OUT OF YOUR PAYCHECK!!!
  • (Skully): He doesn't mean it. He's scared of his own- (The intercom was shut off abruptly)
  • Pinkie: (She giggled) At least minor bad guys can be funny. (They fired at them accurately as they dodged and the missed prjectiles started to turn multiple things into coal)
  • Phil: ROCKBITER'S BOULDERS!!!!
  • Icky: DAMMIT!! AND ONCE AGAIN A SMARTER BADDIE HAD TO GO AND CORRECT THEIR AIM!!
  • Iago: Let's be honest, that Family Guy joke had to die someday.
  • Twilight: Okay, let's avoid doing any damage during being chased this time!
  • Merlin: I'll be sure to quickly reverse any new damage with my magic should it arise!
  • Twilight: Agreed! (They continued running and fixing the Obsidian Cannons' accidental targets)
  • Batty: TORRO-TORRO-TORRO-TORRO-TORRO-TORRO!!! (One of the henchmen kicked down a crate)
  • Kaa: BATTY, WATCH OUT!!!
  • Batty: (He noticed the crate) Oh, THIS is gonna hurt! (He was crushed and came out seeing fairies)...
  • Lola: (She grabbed him as they continued)
  • (Mendax): NOOOO!!! THEY'RE HEADED FOR THE AIRPORT!!! (Growls) I didn't wanna have to release that beast after so many years since it's last ravage, but desperate times... (He got an ancient-looking bird whistle)... Call for desperate measures! (He blew the whistle as the camera panned to a large cloudy mountainous sky far away as a loud monstrous screech was heard, scaring birds away)
  • Donkey: (They made it to the airport)... YES! WE DID IT! HELL YEAH, WE DID IT!!! NO- (The screech sound hit them as they covered their ears)...
  • Brandy:... What was that?
  • Shark Guy: OH, NO!!!
  • Pig Guy: IT'S THE BEAST OF THE SEA OF CLOUDS!!!
  • Rat Guy: IT'S GONNA EAT US ALL!!!
  • Iguana Guy: IT'S NOT SAFE OUTSIDE!! RUN!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!! (Everyone in Klugetown hid or went indoors)
  • Discord:... Why do I get the feeling they're hiding for a good reaso- (The screech got louder as they covered their ears as a bird-like shape appeared from the sunlight)
  • Melman: WHAT IS THAT?!? (They noticed a giant hawk-like eagle bird simular to the one seen in the Aladdin TV series)... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA- (He stuffed his head in the dirt muffling in panic)
  • Lix: THAT'S A BIG BIRD!!!
  • Twilight: IT'S A ROC!!
  • Pinkie: (Giggles) Twilight, I grew up on a rock farm, surely you of all ponies should know that's not a rock!
  • Patrick: As one who lives underwater with ROCKS EVERYWHERE, she's right!
  • Twilight: I MEAN ROC AS IN THE LEGENDARY GIANT BIRD WITH WINGS THAT BLOCK OUT THE SUN!! YA KNOW, LIKE THE ONE THAT GAVE SPIKE SOME TROUBLE AWHILE BACK!?
  • Iago: Ohhhh, ya mean like the giant birds from the Aladdin TV Series?
  • Spike: "I'd say not again, but that thing looks bigger then the one from Everfree!"
  • Lord Shen: "There's always gonna be a bigger verson of something in the world."
  • (Mendax): THAT'S CORRECT, YOU INSUFFERABLE INGRATES! THAT'S THE KLUGE ROC THAT HAS TERRORIZED KLUGETOWN SINCE IT WAS FIRST FOUNDED! IT EATS ANYTHING IT CATCHES, AND ONLY LEAVES WHEN IT HAS IT'S FILL! AND HOW MUCH DOES IT NEED? WELL, JUST MORE THAN ALL OF YOU!!! IT EATS LIKE A MONSTER, AND IT WILL TEAR EVERYTHING APART IF IT MEANS IT GETS A MEAL!!!
  • Twilight: ARE YOU NUTS?!? VERKO'S NOT GONNA LIKE THE FACT THAT YOU DESTROYED MUCH OF THIS TOWN THROUGH THIS BEAST JUST TO KILL A FEW PEOPLE!
  • (Mendax): I'm kinda already more or less on his bad side! What difference would this disaster really make? (The Roc traced the source of the intercom voice it was hearing and swooped towards them)
  • Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum: (Dubbed as Tuck and Roll) TWEET-TWEET! TWEET-TWEET!!! (They ran as the Roc chased them. The Thugs were seen hiding as well as the Roc chased the heroes)
  • Fluttershy: (She quickly got an idea and flew in an opposite direction the heroes were going)
  • Rainbow Dash: FLUTTERSHY, WHERE ARE YOU GO- (The Roc snapped at them) WHAAAH!!
  • Fluttershy: (She arrived at the Statue of the Panther Founder of Klugetown and starts thinking as the Roc caused a lot of damage)... ("This Roc has threaten the town since it was founded? So strange! No natural creature is THAT persistent to torment a town without a reason! And I think I know what that reason might be!") (She tried her hardest to push the statue slowly but surely despite teary eyes as the Klugetowners saw this, as they approached her with Allard and Goosebury)
  • Allard: Little pony, can I ask why you're trying to push Founder Fortuna's statue across the area?
  • Fluttershy: Try not to take this the wrong way, but it NEEDS to come off! There's a VERY good chance this town was accidentally built, ON TOP OF THIS ROC'S NEST!
  • Allard: WHAT?!?
  • Fluttershy: That Roc is tormenting you for a reason! It doesn't just destroy just to eat! There has to be a GREATER reason other than predatory instinct! And what's the one thing that makes an animal acts THIS reckless?
  • Allard:... I... I think that's a good point.
  • Goosberry: BUT HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THING'S A GIRL?!?
  • Fluttershy: I went on a Roc-watching trip with my friend in the Equestrian Society for the Preservation of Rare Creatures, Tree Hugger, once! So I know that females have beautiful rainbow colors on their bodies, MAINLY their wings, for attraction, while the males often have dull colors, but flare them when hormones kick in during mating to attract the female. That's CLEARLY a female! (The Residents realized this as the Roc displayed rainbow colors on it's wings)
  • Jackal:... Holy s***, you're right!
  • Turtle: (Dubbed as DBZA Krillin) THAT THING'S A GIRL?!?
  • Fluttershy: Yes! And she's not killing you people because she's hungry!! She's doing it because she wants to scare you all away by making you THINK it wants to eat you so you'll leave and she can dig up her babies again!!
  • Allard: Are you sure?
  • Fluttershy: That majestic creature CLEARLY wouldn't waste her time with a town in desperate need of repairs if she was hungry. Rocs can be notoriously picky and superficial eaters, and when they DO hunt anything they can eat like a common predator, it's NEVER focused on one location. Based on the species or breed, they prefer to feast in their most preferred wide open spaces like open fields, and NOT A COLLECTION OF RUN-DOWN SHACKS IN THE MIDDLE OF A DESERT!!
  • Hammerhead Guy: I'd be offended, if that wasn't a freaking good point!
  • Fluttershy: So, you wanna live forever? Then I could use a helping hand! (The Klugetowners began to leave their homes with rope and began to wrap the ropes around the statue and help Fluttershy move the statue out of it's foundations and as it was moved, a hole was seen, and when the statue was completely removed from it's foundations, it revealed a large hole where giant eggs were seen)
  • Dobermen: HOLY S***!
  • Bulldog: SHE WASN'T KIDDING! THE POOR BEAST WAS LOOKING FOR IT'S CHILDREN!
  • Sloth: Assuming they're even alive at this point.
  • Fluttershy: Don't worry. Roc eggs can afford to be without the mother for an extremely long time. But it's good we got the statue off as we did, because if I'm correct, those eggs at least have one more year left before they start going bad.
  • Nervous Armadillo: Well, n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-now there's the matter of making her aware of the eggs!
  • Fluttershy: Leave that to me! (She flew up into the sky and straight at a radio tower where Mendax was as he was too distracted by the heores being chased by the Roc to notice Fluttershy charging forth)
  • Skully: (He saw Fluttershy coming) Uhhhhh... Mendax?
  • Mendax: NOT NOW, SKULLY! SUDDEN DEATH IS COMING ON, AND I DON'T WISH TO MISS IT!!
  • Skully: MENDAX?!?
  • Mendax: WHAAT?!? (He looks angrily at Skully, only to notice Fluttershy coming in with an angry expression)... Oh, S- (Fluttershy broke through the glass like a boss as Mendax was like this, only more intensely as Skully hid in his coat)
SMG4 Sounds - SHIIIIIIIIT

SMG4 Sounds - SHIIIIIIIIT

  • Fluttershy: You! (She screams surprisingly loud) GIMME THAT WHISTLE!!
  • Mendax: Miss, it's nothing personal, okay? It's just, um, um, that Roc is important to the- (Fluttershy blew a dog whistle) AHHHH!!! THAT HURTS!!!
  • Fluttershy: Yes! Silent and deadly! So, are you gonna bark at me more, or are you gonna do as I say?
  • Mendax: Now, now, let's be calm about thi- (She blew it again) OOOOWWWWWW, AAAHHHH!!! OKAY, OKAY!!!! (He surrendered the whistle quickly) IT WAS VERKO'S IDEA, OKAY?!?
  • Skully: (He pokes out of his coat) He mostly did this by himself, though!
  • Mendax: NOT HELPING, SKULLY!! I SWEAR, THE SOONER I GIVE YOU THAT ANTI-TRUTH SERUM SHOT, THE BETTER!!
  • Fluttershy: Given that sounds like something a con artist would come up with, I wouldn't bet on it! (She grabbed the whistle)... Now, to avoid having me violate my love for animals by hurting you more than necessary, GO BACK TO WHATEVER HOLE YOU CAME OUT OF!! NOW!!!
  • Mendax: RIGHTIO! (He ran off and tripped down comically as Skully crawled out of his coller)
  • Skully: I WOULD LIKE TO SAY SORRY ON HIS BEHALF! HE HAS A TROUBLED CHILDHOOD! (Mendax ran off with Skully in tow as Fluttershy flew out of the radio tower and saw that the Roc finally cornered the heroes as they were comically stacked together as the Roc got intense)...
  • Fluttershy:... (She got a bold face as she blew the whistle, getting the confused Roc's attention as it saw her)... MAMA ROC, YOU DON'T NEED TO BOTHER THIS TOWN, ANY LONGER!
  • Bubbha: NOW HOLD UP!! THAT THING'S FEMALE?!?
  • Fluttershy: (The Roc flew up and got to Fluttershy's position with a curious but still tense gaze as Fluttershy briefly shuttered and yet continued)... I found your children! (The Roc was intrigued) Now, when you get them back, you must leave this town alone as you have no reason to torment these poor misunderstood people, and find a new more secluded nest! Do you promise?
  • Roc:... (It began to get more calm and pacified as it began to speak)... The promise is accepted!
  • Fluttershy: Good birdie!
  • Roc: Don't push it.
  • Fluttershy: Sorry! Just... Just follow me! (She lead her to the freed eggs, as she breaths energy towards them to finally allow them to hatch to cute but still large Roc chicks the size of an Elephant as the town folk couldn't help but to awe at this sight, including Fluttershy, as the mother reembraced her finally-reunited offspring)
  • Roc:... I would like to offer my condolences for finding and saving my children! I hope you and this town will forgive me for what I did.
  • Fluttershy: Now that they know what you were doing, they will!... I wish you and your children the best of luck. (She pet one of the babies and gave it a belly rub before the Roc flies off with her already flight-capable chicks following her, away from Klugetown for the final time)... (She smiled in pride as the residents began to cheer Fluttershy's name, as the heroes arrived awestruck)
  • Jumbaa:... Did, NOT, see that coming!
  • Pinkie: Wowie-zowie! I guess that Roc-watching trip with Tree Hugger really paid off!
  • Icky: WAIT, THAT THING CAN TALK?!?
  • Twilight: Well, yes. Rocs are birds that grew intelligent to the point of sapience.
  • Icky: WELL, WHY DIDN'T SHE SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THE EGGS BEFORE?!?
  • Twilight: Maternal instinct can be terrible for common sense.
  • Icky:... Fair enough.
  • Banzai: "But why wasn't the one Spike had problems with like that?!"
  • Spike: "Well, the sapience tends to very with certain breeds. Sometimes they can talk, sometimes they don't."
  • Banzai: ".... Huh. Learn something new everyday."
  • Fluttershy:... Well... It makes me wonder... Why would this place be built on a- (An Obsidian Orb projectile flashed right passed her and hit a wall turning it to coal) YIPE!!
  • Verko: (He was seen with a gun and two crocodile thugs) BLAST IT!! WHY AM I ALWAYS A TERRIBLE SHOT?!? (All the heroes looked at him)... Duh, I mean, IS IT NOT OBVIOUS?!?
  • Mane 7: VERKO!!
  • Verko: THE KINGPIN WHO RUNS THE BIG CRIME OUTSIDE YOUR HOME KEPT THIS PLACE AS IT IS EVEN ON THE NEST, TO MAKE A BIG CRIME EMPIRE HERE! The founder here was the first to learn of this, until the Kingpin took care of him.
  • Fluttershy:... So... THE KINGPIN WAS THE ONE WHO TURNED HIM INTO COAL?!?
  • Verko: That's what I pretty much JUST implied!
  • Fluttershy: You jerk!
  • Verko: Guilty! As long as the eggs stayed in the center of the town and OUT of anyone's sight, the constant attacks of the Roc dwindling the integrity of Klugetown ensured crime here remained unchanged! NOW IT'S ALL RUINED! AND YOUR CUTE PONY MUST PAY THE PRICE! Gentlemen? (Susan cleared her throat)... And Susan? (Thugs surrounded Fluttershy as she shyfully coiled)
  • Pufferfish Thug: Nothing personal, toots! (Pulls out a piece of his spine to fashion as a knife) Verko's orders! (They closed in on her as Fluttershy whimpered with teary eyes)
  • ???: NOT SO FAST, VERKO! (Everyone recognized the voice, including Verko)
  • Verko:... CAPPER?!? (Capper came down)
  • Mane Six and Spike: CAPPER!
  • Capper: Give that yellow flying horse some space, huh? She's clearly the claustrophobic type!
  • Patrick: But she reacted fine with all the Santas we've seen before! (Squidward face-palmed and Banzai bonked him with a rock)... You're welcome!...
  • Verko: Don't touch me, Capper! One false move, and the boys- (Susan the Boa cleared her throat again)... AND Susan, WILL LET HER HAVE IT!!
  • Capper: You mess with her, you mess with me, AND her friends! I promised them a friend who can guide them out here, and even if I sold them to you, I REFUSED to break it! I saved them from Storm King! So if you-
  • Verko: SILENCE! I'LL TAKE THAT AS INSUBORDINATION! SAY GOODBY- (Fluttershy was teleported back to the heroes by Merlin)... Oh, right, forgot! CONFOUND YOU AND YOUR MAGIC!!
  • Capper: You were saying?
  • Verko:... (Nervously laughs as the town folk and sailors were ready to get rough)... LET'S GET OUT OF HERE! (They ran off abruptly)
  • Rainbow Dash: I GOT EM!
  • Capper: (He grabs Rainbow's tail) Hey, whoa, don't waste your brute force on Verko and his boys, RD! He'll never be safe for long, anyway! Even in the Bottoms of Kluge, he'll never avoid the growth that resulted from your friends' heroism. You saved our home from the Kluge Roc forever, and you left us hope of being restored to a proper government again!
  • Fluttershy: It, was nothing! I, just happen to know how Rocs work.
  • Allard: Thanks to you, Fluttershy, as it were, I think Klugetown is already on it's way to become a better place. And I haven't even gotten elected yet! (Chuckles) Am I the luckiest duck in the world or what? (The crowd cheered for the group as they leave to follow Capper)

Capper's Home

  • Iago: Well, ain't THIS a good first minor adventure? We get lost in Storm King's clouds, we get wrecked into this BACKWATER TOWN OF S****Y SENTIENT ANIMALS, AND WE ALMOST FALL IN THE HANDS OF SOME SETH MCFARLANE-SOUNDING FOX CON ARTIST SMARTASS AND HIS TRUTH-SERUM-JACKED SCORPION PET, WHO ALMOST SELLS US OFF TO A NAKED MOLE RAT MOBSTER, AND ALMOST KILLS US WITH SOME GIANT ROC BIRD FROM THIS 'SEA OF CLOUDS', THEN WE SAVE THE PEOPLE FROM THE SOURCE OF IT'S CRIMES THROUGH SAID ROC!!! What a PERFECT way to start off this adventure!
  • Icky: Buuut, at least it still ended with us setting this place on the right track to NOT be a COMPLETE scrapheap of a town anymore.
  • Iago: Yeah, but I would've liked for it to happen WITHOUT BECOMING BIRD FOOD, FOR A FELLOW BIRD NO LESS!!
  • Capper: I apologize for the inconvenience, everyone! Mendax is... Quite the sly fox.
  • Duke: Well, at least he wasn't some ripoff of Wilde, that much I'll give kudos to him for.
  • Capper: Bottom line, it's rather nice of you ponies to come back to my humble abode.
  • Rainbow Dash: Hey, it was worth it. We missed you, big guy... Even if you DID cheat us by selling us out to Verky just to pay off a debt.
  • Capper: Hey, come on, it was never meant to be personal, babe! If it made yall' feel any better, the lovely pony lady here made me open up to ya since she fixed my coat. Besides, Verko would've found out about you ladies anyway and ratted you out to Stormy himself. I mean, come on, I made up for it in the end, didn't I?
  • Rainbow Dash: It was still a d*** move, though.
  • Pang: (Sighs) When will cats be as grand as they used to be as a worshipped animal?
  • Capper: Everyone, I got some news that MIGHT help you fight against the chaos Storm King is causing. His storms are keeping anyone around the areas of Equestria from leaving. But, only one team has been able to stand against him before he came here.
  • Jumba:... You're kidding!
  • Capper: Or, at least that's what I heard. They call themselves 'The Guardians of Harmony'.
  • Gilda:... Ain't that the name of that toy brand based on the movie?
  • Capper: Excuse me?
  • Gilda: Nothing, just... Please continue.
  • Capper: Well, back when Klugetown was a prosperous place... You know, back before the whole Roc debacle... People would tell of them as noble and global fighters who had power beyond those of which you or any other Equestrian-based magic could possess. And one hero stood to lead their warrior guild to keep the lands outside yours safe from villains like Storm King. And his name... Was Stratus Skyranger! (The noted hippogriff from the toy line was seen)
  • Rainbow Dash: Well... I can tell he IS a pure hippogriff like Novo and Skystar. Good to know there are other beings out there with our purity, even if through inheriting it through interbreeding with us and griffins.
  • Gazelle: And no doubt it can allow them to be as pure as them.
  • Capper: Exactly. Stratus and his Councilor father had a team of others from all corners of this world, to protect it from threats big and small. And for over 80 years, with their extended lifespans, they did a wonderful job. They were adored. But... In mid 2016, they vanished for some reason. Nobody knows exactly where they are.
  • Celaeno:... And you're sure that these guys can help us clear away the power Storm King has on these places?
  • Capper: It's a long shot, but yes, they might. After all, these storms are gonna get stronger every day unless they are brought down for the count. I cannot bare to deal with him again. Not since my friend Chummer betrayed me and left me in debt with Verko, and...
  • Celaeno: And the fact that you got there after leaving me at the mercy of Storm King? HE ALMOST TOOK MY OTHER LEG! It's bad enough I lost my other one because of my quarrel with Blot, and that maim, WAS, PAINFUL!!! All Stormy did was temporarily break the other leg, and after it healed... Well... You can see how we ended up as lame carrier pigeons.
  • Capper: Eh, life's a bitch that way sometimes, but you've gotten over it. Bottom line, we can't let Storm King go with this more powerful version of the staff we destroyed!
  • Soothsayer: Unfortunately, that staff of his father cannot be destroyed. His father, was a POWERFUL conqueror in his youth, and magic was his big game-changer. But though we can't destroy it, we CAN lessen it's power to the same level as Storm King's last staff, making it easier to keep him in line.
  • Skipper: Then I say we gotta find these Guardians of Harmony immediately!
  • Celaeno: And how do we do THAT?!? Storm King tore our ship down... AGAIN!
  • Murdock: BAWWK!
  • Celaeno: Yeah, but Tempest was with him, so it still counts! So, until we get that piece of junk fixed, we're not gonna be going anywhere for a while!
  • ???: Perhaps I can help with that! (A cat similar to Capper, but with white and gray fur and black stripes, a blue coat like Capper's, two bands on his tail, and eyes like Capper's except cyan was seen)...
  • Capper:... CHUMMER?!?
  • Chummer: Yeah, it's me! Go ahead, berate me for leaving you in debt to Verko. Look, it wasn't personal, like what you always say. It's usually every cat for himself.
  • Applejack:... Wait, THIS guy is what got you in debt?
  • Capper:... (Sighs) It's a long story.

Flashback

  • (Capper): The two of us were orphans back in our hometown of Panthera, the capital of Abyssinia. We were petty thieving friends back then.
  • (Puss):... I already feel you. Me and a friend of mine used to be the same. Then he ended up betraying me because he didn't know what he wanted to be.
  • (Capper):... Well my fellow feline, you're not that far off, because our history was somewhat similar. See, when Storm King invaded it and stole all it's riches, we stowed away on Celaeno's ship, got a ship just as Storm King attacked, then we crashed in the Bone Dry Desert, found something we'd find valuable and worth a fortune, and we made our thieving living when we arrived in Klugetown.
  • (Chummer): And I must say, the desert was a MONSTER to us! (The two were seen in the desert in white robes)
  • Capper: (Pants heavily) I don't... Know... How much farther... I can go!
  • Chummer: C'mon... Capper... Just... One more... Dune! We can make it! The other life around us is making it, right? (The desert was comically killing off life in random ways)... I... I... Maybe... We should've... Stayed... In Abyssinia.
  • Capper: WAIT!... Hey, over... Over THERE!... I think it's a town! (They saw Klugetown in the distance)
  • Chummer: Huh?... Whoa! Looks grim!
  • Capper: C'mon! (They head out)
  • (Capper): And I must say, the town was NOT as nice to us as the desert.
  • Turtle Merchant: FRUITS! GET'CHER WEIRD EXOTIC FRUITS HERE!
  • Fish Merchant: STRANGE TRINKETS!
  • Pony Merchant: RUGS!
  • Chummer: OW! DAMN! Those guys must REALLY want to make a sale if they're screaming THIS loud!
  • Capper:... What IS this place, Chummer?
  • Chummer: I dunno... But I think it looks interesting. (A hermit goblin tried to swipe their bag) HEY! HANDS OFF! (The goblin grumbled) DON'T YOU "GRUMBLE-GRUMBLE" ME, UGLY! (He kicks dirt in his face) You want something, you pay for it like everyone else!
  • Capper:... Was that necessary?
  • Chummer: Hey, he tried to steal our meal-ticket! Let's just see what we can do with it! (They approached the Turtle Merchant)
  • Capper: Hey, mister? What's the name of this place?
  • Turtle Merchant: (As Chummer and the goblin gave each other dirty looks) It's Klugetown! And that's the ONLY thing you'll get for free from ME! EVERYTHING costs in Klugetown!
  • Capper: (Chuckles) Well, what about that guy that just took that fruit?
  • Turtle Merchant: WHAT?!? NOBODY STEALS FROM ME!!! (He went after the non-existent thieves as Capper swiped two of his fruits for him and Chummer)
  • Capper: Sucker!
  • Chummer: I know, right? (He took a bite of his fruit)
  • Capper: I like it already.
  • Chummer: Klugetown is going to take some getting used to.
  • (Lord Shen): Heh, for former thieves, you two seemed good at it.
  • (Chummer): We were good at getting outta trouble like that all the time! So... We found this place later on, and got ready for some arrangements.
  • Capper: You sure it's empty, Chummer?
  • Chummer: Looks that way. What'd I tell you? It's PERFECT!
  • Capper: It looks a little... Cluttered.
  • Chummer: C'MAAAAAAANNN! Just needs a quick cleaning, that's all! THen it'll be OUR place!
  • Capper: (He sat on a crate sighing) I wish we were back in Abyssinia. I'm TIRED of running!
  • Chummer: Aw, c'mon, Capper! We were orphans on the street back in Abyssinia, too, same as we are here! Remember running through the market stalls? Remember outwitting the guards and stealing what we needed? We've done it before, and we can do it again!
  • Capper: Yeah, but how long do we HAVE to do it?
  • Chummer:... What do you mean?
  • Capper: I mean I don't want to be a thief forever! I just want to find a place where we can just... BE!
  • Chummer: Hey, c'mon, buddy! Long as we got each other, we can make it anywhere! (He took out a glowing green rock on a chain) And hey! We might not HAVE to steal, if we can sell THIS thing! Just LOOK at it! It's probably magic, too! I'm tellin' you, Capper! This thing is our good luck charm!
  • (Chummer): Heh, ironically, we thought that until we learned what it REALLY was later. Until then... (The two were seen making an unlawful living in Klugetown such as stealing bread from a vulture merchant while Capper was playing cards with him, pick-pocketing merchants underneath their feet, finding salvageable items in the trash, counting earned money from their exploits, and Capper pick-pocketing a crocodile brute while Chummer was playing three-cups with him)... We did what we could out in the harsh community we were in. Little did we know... (Mobsters were seen watching them)... We had people watching our every move.
  • (Discord): Was it Verko?
  • (Chummer): Who else would it be?
  • Chummer: And dinner is served! (He got him a mostly-consumed fish) "Bone" appetit!
  • Capper:... THIS, is all you could get?
  • Chummer: Yeah! Things are EXPENSIVE, and we haven't been able to make THAT much! Klugetown is MERCILESS! How are two street-smart lovable urchins supposed to make it here on their own?
  • Capper: Eh, fair point! Plus, I think we're attracting attention. Have you noticed a lot of tough-looking goons watching us?
  • Chummer: (With mouth full) Yeah!
  • Capper: For God's sake, Chummer, don't talk with your mouth full!
  • Chummer: Ugh, fine! (He swallows)... OW! Sometimes, the bones can hurt.
  • Capper: Then don't eat 'em next time! Anyway, I don't know about you, but we could be in more trouble than we realize. We can't be the only thieves in this town. There's got to be SOMEONE running this place.
  • Chummer: You want to work for someone? A CRIME BOSS?!
  • Capper: Not quite! The way I see it, we need resources, and we need to leave! (They looked at the green rock)... And I think there's a way to get BOTH at once!
  • Chummer:... I think I know what you're getting it, Cappy!... Well... I guess it's now or never. I don't think even WE can survive a s****y town like THIS! Sooner or later, we're gonna be mobbed by mobsters. So, if it means we get out of here, we may have to find this 'crime boss', and give him a reason to trust us. But... Are you sure we can both make it out alive?
  • Capper: Maybe not... But let's take a shot at it anyway!
  • (Chummer): Then, we decided to just either search for them, or wait for them to find us. Either way, we had to try something to find him.
  • (Starlight):... And how did you meet Verko?
  • (Chummer): (They were seen approached by a rhino, and two mole rat goons bigger than them)... They found us first. (They were brought to Verko)
  • Verko: SO... You boys have been pretty busy in this town!
  • Capper:... Are you the one who runs this town?
  • Chummer: Yeah, we have been considering looking for you what with your peeping goonies here!
  • Verko: I can certainly imagine why! And yes, you found him! Congratulations! My name's Verko! I OWN Klugetown! Every lowlife, knave, and villain who ever picked a pocket here answers to me.
  • Capper: No offense, Mr. Verko, but... You seem a little... Short, to run a place like this. You'd think the big guys out there would've had your ass for breakfast by now.
  • Verko: You're right. Fortunately, I had some... Help. I may be the one who owns the place, but I didn't get it without help. Some Kingpin who helped mold Klugetown into what it is today, got me this far, so I run the place for him while he's at different outside matters. He prefers to be anonymous, so don't expect me to spill any beans for you, EVEN with cash! Now... What was I saying?
  • Capper: You were saying how everybody who does crime answers to you?
  • Verko: Right! Well... All... Except for you two! You two think you can just waltz into Klugetown and start robbing everybody?
  • Chummer: If it meant having something to eat for a day, I'm sure you'd do the same.
  • Verko: Eh, fair point, but still, two cats can't make it out on the streets.
  • Capper: Actually, Mr. Verko, we don't wanna be in Klugetown either! And with your help, we can leave and be out of your hair forever.
  • Chummer: Or lack there of, am I right?
  • Capper: Chum, let's not piss him off, okay?
  • Verko: ME? Help YOU? And what do I get out of it? EVERYTHING costs in Klugetown!
  • Chummer: Kinda got the idea when we first came. Besides, we wouldn't offer this if we didn't have anything to give you in return.
  • Verko:... Sly cats. But seriously, what's in it for me?
  • Capper: Well, for starters, you'd be helping two poor innocent lost children escae this hive of thievery and villainy.
  • (Icky): (Scoffs) Star Wars reference right there!
  • (Fidget): Eh, Verko made a Shining reference in the movie, so I'm not THAT surprised.
  • Capper: But you'll also get a LOT more! Take a look at the windmill, won't you? (Verko looks through a telescope)
  • Verko:... And what am I looking for?
  • Capper: A small, shiny prize! We've got a gem to sell, y'see! And before you get any tricky ideas, look where it is! (Verko saw the gem hanging on it's chain on an unstable thick collection of planks of wood) Your big, strong henchmen would be too heavy to cross that plank. (Verko got a closer look, and his eyes cartoonishly engorged with an 'aoogah' sound as his goggles came off as he realized what it was)
  • Verko: THAT GEM?!? YOU'RE SELLING IT?!?
  • Capper: Sure! We figure it's worth a few copper pennies or so!
  • Verko: COPPER PENNIES?!? ARE YOU NUTS, KID?!? THAT'S THE MISFORTUNE MALACHITE!!!
  • (Twilight): Wait... As in 'the gem that was notorious for granting power, but causing bad luck and thus destroying countless lands and harming people's lives as a result' Misfortune Malachite?!?
  • (Chummer): You bet your ass it was 'the gem that was notorious for granting power, but causing bad luck and thus destroying countless lands and harming people's lives as a result' Misfortune Malachite! But I can imagine, given how much it had been through, it has gone through a LOTTA people.
  • (Celaeno):... I just remembered I left it on the ship you guys took. I was wondering where it was.
  • (Capper): If it was this dangerous and you were looking to get rid of it, then you're welcome!
  • (Chummer): Anyway, back to the story!
  • Verko: DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT GEM IS WORTH?!?
  • Capper: Well, WE didn't, but it seems like YOU think it's a lot! (Verko growls unamused)
  • Verko: Alright, kid! It's a LOT! But it's not just about the money! That gem is CURSED, they say! It's toppled empires and started wars! I buy it from you, I'm risking my neck! That gem, could RUIN me! Put me out of business... FOREVER!... But, I mean, it's REALLY a lot! So sure, I'll buy it!
  • Capper: REALLY?!?
  • Chummer: YEAH!!!
  • Verko: I know some dealers who would be happy to get such a treasure. 'Course, that raises the question: How do two kids get ahold of a treasure of the Abyssinian Royal Family?
  • Chummer: It's a LONG story, Verko!
  • Capper: Let's just say, we went through a lotta s*** for it to end up in our paws. We'd rather not waste time spent making this deal by explaining it.
  • Verko: I can agree. So what do you boys want for the Malachite? Because it's worth a LOT more than just a ticket outta Klugetown!
  • Chummer: Huh?
  • Verko: That gem is worth PLENTY! I can get you your own airshi with all the trimmings for it's rice. So, how much?
  • Capper: A SKYSHIP!!!
  • Chummer: FULLY LOADED! WITH CANNONS!
  • Capper: AND, AND CLOTHES! UNIFORMS!
  • Chummer: CUTLASSES AND COMPASSES!
  • Capper: MAPS AND GLOBES!!
  • Chummer: EVERYTHING A PIRATE NEEDS!
  • (Banzai): Jesus, guys, that's quite a lot to ask for from crime boss Rufus!
  • Verko: Geez, guys, that's QUITE a lot to ask for from a crime boss!... However, if you insist, I will see what I can do!
  • Capper: Great! See you soon, Verk!
  • Verko: Same to you! And don't call me Verk!
  • (Sam): Well, I guess you two were able to get your chance after all.
  • (Capper): Yeeeeahhh, we were... Until Chummer started to have stupid thoughts. (The two were seen sleeping in cat beds at night)
  • Chummer: Hey, Capper?
  • Capper: Yeah, Chummer?
  • Chummer: I keep thinking about what Verko said, about how two cats can't make it out on the streets. But the two of us, we've always been there for each other. We wouldn't have gotten this far without each other. We need each other. Don't we?
  • Capper: Maybe Verko doesn't think that way. Maybe he thinks... Friends are a distraction. Maybe he thinks if you're alone... You can be free.
  • Chummer:... Oh.
  • Capper: Like, if you don't have to help anyone, or you don't rely on anyone... You only have to worry about yourself.
  • Chummer:... Do YOU believe that?
  • Capper: NO! God no! I DON'T like that! I LIKE being with you, Chummer!
  • Chummer: Me too, Capper! We'll get out of here. I promise you. It's every cat for themselves out here.
  • Capper: Yeah...
  • Chummer:... Capper?... I was ALSO thinking... When we leave Klugetown... Where should we go next? Abyssinia's possibly ruined beyond repair, and we need a way to start our lives.
  • Capper: I don't know, Chummer. But I wanna remind you right now: I don't want to keep running and stealing. I want to find a place where we can stop. I want to find a home.
  • Chummer: PFFT, what do we need a home for? We got each other! We can keep stealing and living on the streets forever! It's what we're good at! Chummer and Capper, best thieves in the land! Yeah!
  • Capper: Yeah... But I'd rather just be Chummer and Capper... Friends.
  • Chummer:... You sure we can cope with a life like that? I mean, we've been doing this for as long as we can remember. We're orphans, and we've got each other.
  • Capper: Yeah. But we are a LOT better than this! I can't agree it won't be easy... But I am NOT going to steal forever. The best you can do is accept it. So I'm asking you as a friend: Can you try?
  • Chummer:... (Sighs)... Fine!
  • Capper: Good! Glad we agreed on this! Good night, Chummer!
  • Chummer: (Sighs) G'night, Capper!
  • (Capper): But Chummer wouldn't let it go so easily. By the time our airship was ready... Chummer had changed.
  • Verko: (They saw the ship as a Hallelujah choir was heard)... Well, boys? Is it everything you wanted?
  • Chummer: Are you kidding? It's PERFECT, Mr. Verko!
  • Capper: Yeah! It's everything two pirates could ask for.
  • Chummer: (He got a determined look) I'll go up and check it out! (He climbed the rope ladder) Capper, when I give you the okay, give them the Malachite!
  • Capper: Right!
  • Verko: The skyship's nearly brand new, you know! Cost me a pretty peny from judge errant! You boys had better make good use of it!
  • Capper: We will, Mr. Verko! HOW'S IT LOOK, CHUMMER?
  • Chummer:... (To himself) It looks as though I don't need you anymore, friend! (He cut the rope ladder)
  • Capper: Uh... WHAT'S GOING ON?!?
  • Mole Rat #1: HE CUT THE ROPE LADDER!!
  • Verko: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PULL, KID?!?
  • Capper: I SWEAR, I DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO-
  • Mole Rat #2: GRAB HIM! GRAB THE GEM!!!
  • Capper: WHA-HEY!!! (He pulled it out to see it was just a regular green rock)
  • Mole Rat #2: IT'S JUST A ROCK!
  • Capper: WHAT?!? WHAT IS HE THINKING?!?
  • Mole Rat #1: The other cat's pulling a scam! After him!
  • Capper: No! Let me! I CLEARLY need to have a talk with him! CHUMMER, HOLD ON! I'M COMING!! (He grabbed the rope and climbed up) CHUMMER, PLEASE! WAIT!!! ERGH!! (He got onto the ship) CHUMMER! STOP THE SHIP! PLEASE!
  • Chummer: NO!
  • Capper: NO?!? WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO?!? I THOUGHT WE WERE IN THIS TOGETHER!!
  • Chummer: We WERE! But... (Sighs) I'm sorry! Verko was right! Two cats can't make it on their own!
  • Capper: But we could make it together!
  • Chummer: GET OFF! (He tilted the ship as Capper fell on his back)
  • Capper: AAH! WHY?!? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?!?
  • Chummer: You NEVER wanted to be a thief! I wanted to do what we were good at with you, and you betrayed me!
  • Capper: I BETRAYED YOU?!? YOU'RE THE ONE BETRAYING ME!!! WE CAN'T DO THIS FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES!
  • Chummer: IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE A THIEF, THEN WHO AM I TO STOP YOU? Friends really ARE a distraction! If I can't have a thief friend by my side, then why should I keep him around?
  • Capper: I WANTED WHAT WAS BEST FOR US!
  • Chummer: NO! YOU WANTED WHAT WAS BEST FOR YOU! (Capper was shocked) WELL, I'M NOT YOU! I'M, A THIEF!
  • Capper: CHUMMER, STOP THE SHIP, AND GIVE VERKO WHAT WE OWE HIM, NOW!
  • Chummer: NEVER! (He tilted the ship again)
  • Capper: OOF! (A lantern fell t the ground causing a fire as Capper fell into a red coat and fell off the side and hung for his life) CHUMMER! PLEASE! HELP ME!
  • Chummer: You shouldn't have come after me, Capper! We could've lived our own lives! We don't need each other!
  • Capper: I NEED YOU!! I NEED A FRIEND!
  • Chummer: Well, you should've thought of that sooner! You were going to leave me, Capper! So I'm leaving you first!... I'm sorry!
  • Capper: CHUMMER! (He fell) CHUMMEEERRR!!! (He fell with the jacket as the airship caught ablaze and fell and Capper landed safely in foam rubber in the presence of Verko and his goons)
  • Verko: WHAT HAS HE DONE?!? YOUR IDIOT FRIEND JUST STOLE FROM ALL OF US! Now I'm out the gem, the ship, the supplies! THE WAY THAT SHIP IS BURNING, IT WON'T EVEN MAKE IT OUT OF THE DESERT! I'M OUT TWO FORTUNES, AND YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE LEFT TO BLAME!
  • Capper:... What?
  • Verko: I SAID, YOUR FRIEND HAS RUINED US! HE BETRAYED US BOTH!!!
  • Capper:... (He looked at the red coat)... No... You're wrong! (He put on the coat and donned his Movie appearance)... He was NEVER my friend!
  • (Capper): Chummer left on the ship without me, because I didn't wanna be a thief forever and just wanted a decent living, while HE wanted to be a thief, and wanted me on my side. Thus, we accidentally lit the airship on fire, and while he assumedly died, I fell out and back into Klugetown and left me in debt to Verko.

Present

  • Capper: He betrayed me! He left me alone in a place of crime and chaos! After a lotta other mishaps that made me MORE in debt to Verko, like Mendax for instance... Well, the rest you know. So, you mad at me for selling you out? Blame HIM for getting you in that mess to begin with!
  • Chummer: (Sighs) Look, if it cleans up any bad milk between us... I've changed my ways as well.
  • Capper: Oh, really?
  • Chummer: Yeah! I mean, who do you think saved you from Verko's wrath after Tempest teleported you into his office after she FRIED HIM SENSELESS?!?
  • Capper:... That was you?
  • Chummer: You're welcome!
  • Celaeno: Well, you clearly survived that airship crash.
  • Chummer: Puh-leese! I told you I've gotten out of tighter scrapes than that. You should know! We were once in the stomach of a Ground Whale for days after it mistook us for ground krill! Heck, we were once surprised we survived after that time when we enraged a nest of giant twittermites! That brings back bad memories. And I still feel that one zap! And don't get me STARTED on that flash bee swarm we gotten ourselves into because you just HAD to accept that snake bug collector's price tag to bring him back a flash bee queen!
  • Capper: Well, joke's on that slippery serpent! We 'forgot' to warn him about that persistent swarm. We got rich, AND hospitalized a bug collector all of the animal kingdoms didn't really like! It was VERY satisfying payback for the painful stings we suffered! But seriously, I hope your little backstab was worth it, you hairball!
  • Chummer: Actually... It wasn't! I couldn't find the Misfortune Malachite when I crashed, and before I knew it, Tempest found it before me. But... (Dubbed as Humpty)... A day... A day doesn't go by, when I think about what I lost.... I lost my best friend. My only friend, because I let my dream of being a cat burglar, no pun intended, get the better of me. But since then, I was lost.

Flashback...

  • (Chummer): (He came out of the wreckage)... When I got out of that wreckage... I was not going to let myself go lost too early. I searched hard for the Malachite, but then... Someone else found it... Or rather... Somepony. (Tempest was seen finding it first and ran off from Grubber and his forces with it)...
  • Chummer:... Well, f- (He was crushed under debris)... I'm okay!... Barely!
  • (Chummer): Thus, without my meal-ticket... I was more lost than ever. I wandered the land trying to make my thief life work, and with you out, I had to make it on my own. Let me tell you, it was hard. Over time, I realized I was mistaken. I couldn't live out on my own. The only reason we made it out in the streets, was because we had each other. (He was seen failing many times in his thieving career)... As I never made much in my career, I was wndering constantly, where my life went wrong... (He saw a picture of him and Capper as kittens in Panthera)... It was too clear... I made a HUGE mistake. (Chummer was seen crying to himself as he left into elegant lands)... Then Stratus found me. (Stratus came in as a hippogriff similar to the hippogriff of the same name in canon, but much more elegant and a star-based symbol on his bronze armor)... Granted, at first to arrest me for the bounty. But... Then he learned of my sorrow, and decided to give me a chance of redemption.
  • Stratus: Chummer, you're under arrest!
  • Chummer:... Go ahead, then! I'd rather be dead than to be out here all by myself.
  • Stratus:... Pardon?
  • Chummer: (Sighs)... I'm not a good thief! I thought I could do well on my own... But I'm not. I betrayed the only friend I ever had because of this mistaken way of thinking. But it's clear that, without him, I'm lost. So... Just get it over with, and send me to prison!
  • Stratus:... It's clear there's more to you than your records say.
  • Chummer:... What?
  • Stratus: I can read it in your eyes and feelings alone. Our kind are descended from the purest and dominant beings of this world. We have unique talents. I can read you like an open book. You regret heavily the mistake of betraying a friend because you felt you were better off without him when he didn't want this dishonest life you have.
  • Chummer: Oh, you have NO idea! I've never stolen a SINGLE thing thus far since I left. I was BAD at it without him!... I don't... I don't feel like I can do this anymore... I'd give anything to have Capper back. There's no way he'll forgive me after I left him at the mercy of Verko.
  • Stratus:... What you need, is guidance! You're not as bad as the other thieves out there. There's too much context to you to simply arrest you. You need someone who can get you back on your feet. So, you're lucky you met me. Come with me.
  • Chummer:... How do I know I can trust you so much you won't turn me in the last second?
  • Stratus: Would you rather stay out here alone depressed, lost, and lonely?
  • Chummer:... You got me in a box, there. (The two flew off)

Present

  • Chummer:... So I now act as a spy for the Guardians of Harmony.
  • Capper:... It doesn't change what you did, completely. Ya still screwed me over completely, Chums. Not exactly something easy to overlook and pretend it never happened. If you wish to prove me wrong, then you will help us deal with Storm King.
  • Chummer: That's what they're doing anyway! Problem is that Stratus won't let me in a mission as big as that since I'm still a rookie.
  • Capper: Ya sure it's that and that he doesn't trust someone with backstabbing tendencies?
  • Chummer: Yeesh, Caps! You are always such a grudge-holder!
  • Capper: Hey, it kept me from trusting any more traitors, didn't it?
  • Chummer: Ohhh, and what does that make Verko?
  • Capper: I didn't exactly trust him either, nor did he to me as far as he could throw me! I mean, HIM, I would predict to stab anyone in the back being a crime boss, but you? You were like a brother to me! We went through TONS of crazy s*** together, and now I'm supposed to believe you're with these Guardians? I mean, come on, Chummer! How stupid do you think I am? If this is supposed to be another scam, you're doing a crappy job with it! And if Verko or any of his Klugetown Mafia friends put you up to this, tell them we got bigger fish to fry than them right now! Also, after what he just went through a while ago, I'd say, TOO SOON!
  • Starlight: Aren't you being a little.... Distrusting, Capper?
  • Capper: You do realise that this guy was my scam partner, right? You call it mistrust, I call it common sense. Ya know, that thing that would've protected you ladies from getting captured by Stormy to begin with?
  • Twilight: (She was hurt by those words)
  • Chummer: Look, look... Capper! Stratus has a keen eye for detail. If I was STILL a thief, I wouldn't even be here and behind a jail cell. He'd DEFINITELY know if I was selling them out to Storm King. He DID destroy his hometown and seeks to do so again when it is rebuilt. I am telling you the truth here. Besides, with the Storm King storming up a storm out here, if they see you harboring these guys, you may be in danger as well.
  • Capper: Hmmph! That's another thing! You're a good liar. I can't even tell if what you're saying is true or not. I should know, you were my partner, AND my friend!
  • Pinkie: Capper, please, what if he IS telling the truth? We almost got chomped by that colossal Roc back there! We could definitely use some help from a guy like him. (Chummer sang this, only in his own voice, and doing more lawful things like taking food with his tail and leaving bits, holding back a Camazotz with his arm before it attacked Fluttershy and kicked it in the chest, among others as he guided them back to the wrecked ship and using an orb similar to the Obsidian Orbs to repair not just the damage done by the Roc, but also much of the dilapidated environment for Allard and Goosebury, the depetrified Fortuna, and Celaeno's ship by throwing it like a grenade, rolling up a carpet for the heroes, and near the end, he messages for an assistant to meet him in Questra as he has heroes to help)
My Little Pony The Movie Soundtrack - "I’m the Friend You Need" Audio Track

My Little Pony The Movie Soundtrack - "I’m the Friend You Need" Audio Track

  • Capper:... Okay, why would you sing my song? Sure we rehearsed it together, but come on!
  • Icky: Get used to it, pal! A lot of our songs ended up sung by random people. The Hyenas have several expies that used their song from the Broadway musical more than once, Cobra ALWAYS tended to sing In The Dark of the Night like he's a snake-animated Rasputin, a sentient shark took Ursula's song, Jafar's songs are used once or twice, and heck, Mirage sang Yzma's deleted song from back when The Emperor's New Groove was meant to be something else entirely! (Capper gave a seriously-confused face)... Oh right, you don't understand post-modernism. What I mean is, it happens all the time.
  • Thunderclap: Look, it wouldn't hurt to at least give him a chance.
  • Capper: G'oooooh, fine! But I'm gonna be there to pick up your jaws and say I told you so! Let's just go!

Meet The Guardians Of Harmony/Defeating Thunder

Questra, Guardians of Harmony Temple

  • Twilight: (The bustling temple lobby was filled with Guardians from all walks of life and all corners of the world of Equestria were seen, and Capper was seen with a more cartoonishly-exaggerated face)... I think it's safe to say Chummer is not pulling our legs!
  • Chummer: (He got smug) Well, Cap, this would be the part where you coughed up bits when you DID accept my bet! You CLEARLY would've lost it in a split second!
  • Capper: YOU STILL HAVE TO EARN MY FORGIVENESS!!
  • Chummer: Someday, Capper! Someday, you'll understand!
  • ???: Chumsworth! (A familiar shadowy cloudly being showed up towards the group with two foreign Minotaur and Troll Guardian guards)
  • Twilight: Whoa! An Enenra! I never thought I would get to see one up close and personal!
  • Icky: A what?
  • Soothsayer: A mythical living cloud of Japanese mythology.
  • Cloud Being: What did I say about bringing outsiders? For as long as the Storm King's out and about, we can't afford exposure!
  • Chummer: Hey, hey, easy there, Strife-
  • Strife: I TOLD YOU NOT TO CALL ME THAT ANY LONGER!!! That name is simply beneath me now. I am now going by my birth name, Nimbus! Those days of being a stooge to The Storm King are done.
  • Celaeno: Hey, Stri... Well... Nimbus.
  • Nimbus: Greetings, Celaeno!... I wanna say thank you for at least trying to help me.
  • Capper: Well, we are still familiar with you as Strife. After all, you DID tried to swindle Stormy out of Pantheran treasure for, an unspecified reason.
  • Twilight:... Huh?
  • Nimbus:... I was... The second-in-command for Storm King before he attacked you.

Flashback

  • (Nimbus): Back then, he was the only one I could look up to since... Since he destroyed my hometown of Nimbary. (Storm King was seen invading a land of foggy landscapes like Cloudsdale and other Enenras like him were seen panicking)... I was the only one left after everyone else evacuated back to our original homeland (Nimbus was seen as a youngling).... And that left Storm King... To take me in... And raised me for one purpose: Conquering.
  • (Rainbow Dash): Wow... That's pretty f****d up!
  • (Nimbus): It was! He gave me the name Strife and changed me up literally as a being of cloud, so I could have a new identity. But by the time we invaded Abyssinia's capital of Panthera... My life was starting to flash before my eyes.
  • Storm King: Another successful invasion, Strife!
  • Strife: Yes, my lord! A masterpiece of strategy, I may say!
  • Storm King: Another country PLUNDERED of it's riches! They're barely even a challenge anymore! And do you know why? Because I have NO FRIENDS! Friendship is a weakness! A liability! Friends distract you. Make you weak. Friends can betray you. Make you forget your goals. I have soldiers, commanders, workers... But no friends! Which means nobody will ask me to sacrifice my ambitions. My goals are my own. Even YOU, my right-hand creature! Even YOU are not a friend! You are an agent of my will! You serve me not out of some misguided sentimentality or imagined camaraderie... But because you know I will win in the end. I will be the most powerful creature in the world. And you want to be at my side.
  • Strife:...... Yes, my lord! I AM your servant!
  • Storm King: WELL! I don't know about you, but I am QUITE exhausted! I'm heading to my stateroom! Wake me if anything happens, won't you?
  • Strife: Of course, my lord! Sleep well! (He left)... Hmmph! Finally! I thought he'd NEVER leave! I've had enough of him using me to my own ends. It's bad enough he pushed me around like a leper... But he has the audacity, to think of me as someone who always has his back, because he took pity on me after he destroyed my home!... Well... I won't have it! (He looks at the stolen Abyssinian loot)... And I already have the wealth to make it right!
  • (Nimbus): So... I did what I had to do, and contacted someone to help me be rid of Storm King once and for all! (He takes a small green potion flask, and after pasting a mailing address, uses a storm-like breath like Spike's green messenger fire breath to cause the bolt to go out)
  • Strife:... Find the best pirates in this area... So I can take this loot for my own... And rebuild Nimbary!
  • (Celaeno):... And that's how you found us?
  • (Nimbus): It was! (The bolt delivered the flask to them on their ship)...
  • Boyle:... What was that?
  • Parrot Pirate #1: T'weren't no storm in the sky!
  • Mullet: And what's this bottle?
  • Celaeno: Looks like lightning in a bottle to me! (She opened it as the green magic smoke came out and Strife's face was viewed in it)
  • Strife: Greetings, Captain Celaeno! My name is Strife! I have a proposal for you! You and your crew have been a thorn in the side of the Storm King for some time. I wish to help you. In two moons time, the Storm King's treasure fleet will be moving through this pass! (Shows them the coordinates on a map) His ships will be loaded with the treasures of the Abyssinian Kingdom. And I can ensure the lookouts will not be watching. There will be riches for the taking. The choice is yours. (The message ended)
  • (Celaeno):... I must say, you couldn't have messaged us at a better time, Nimbus. We needed the wealth to fix up our ship, among other reasons. A treasury as rich as THAT, could've helped us!
  • (Mullet): Sure we meant we had to split the wealth 50-50 so we could satisfy ourselves, but we still got what we wanted...
  • Storm King: (Celaeno and her crew were invading) WHAT'S GOING ON?!? WHERE ARE THE SENTRIES?!? HOW DID THESE PIRATES GET SO CLOSE TO MY ARMADA?!?
  • Strife: Thanks to ME, my lord! (The Storm King was shocked)... I told the pirates where our fleet would be flying, and when! I then took our sentries off-duty, leaving the armada unprotected. These pirates are going to steal ALL your treasure ships, at MY suggestion!
  • Storm King:... Strife... You BETRAYED me?!
  • Strife: No, Storm King! As you said, FRIENDS can betray you! I merely have my own goals! And they do NOT include you! (He left onto their ship)
  • Storm King: YOU... YOU CAN'T DO THIS!!!
  • Strife: I already have, King! You claimed to have no friends... But you TRUSTED me! THAT was your mistake! (They left with his wealth)
  • Celaeno: All RIGHT! We got em! Take us away, Mullet!
  • Mullet: Aye-aye, captain!
  • (Storm King): RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
  • Celaeno: Hold on tight, Strife! We'll need to outrun their flagship! MORE SPEED, MULLET!
  • Strife: Don't worry, captain! I sabotaged the flagship before I left.
  • Storm King: YOU! FOLLOW THEM!!
  • Storm Guard #1: I-I can't, sir! She's not turning right! Strife must've sabotaged the ship!
  • Strife: Believe me when I say... We are safe! (They left in the dark of night)
  • Storm King: Grrrrrrggh!!!... (He grabbed a swabbing Grubber by the hair and picked him up)
  • Grubber: GAK!!
  • Storm King: YOU! Small, weak, useless creature!
  • Grubber: T-That's me!
  • Storm King: You are too cowardly to even ATTEMPT to betray me, are you not? To SPINELESS to consider your own wants. AREN'T YOU?!?
  • Grubber: Y-Y-Y-You got me pegged, boss!
  • Storm King: (As he tossed him) GOOD! You're my new second-in-command! (Rainbow Dash was heard laughing in the background)
  • (Mullet):... For only a brief time... (Rainbow Dash stopped laughing at that)
  • Storm King: Get my ship repaired and follow those pirates!... We have a traitor to catch!
  • (Nimbus): Yes, we were rich as I promised... But not for long.
  • Mullet: WE DID IT, BOYS! (They enjoyed their newfound wealth) WE'RE RICH!!
  • Pirates: YAARRR!!
  • Strife: Your crew did well, captain! I am glad I trusted you with my plan.
  • Celaeno: Likewise, Strife! This is the biggest haul we've ever taken! I have to say, I was worried about the risks, but... It seems as though it all paid off!
  • Parrot Pirate #2: CAP'N! TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE FOUND ON ONE OF THE SHIPS! HERE! (He showed them the Misfortune Malachite)
  • (Capper): Ahhhh-
  • (Chummer): P***!
  • Celaeno: BY THE SKIES... IT'S BEAUTIFUL!... What is it?
  • Strife: A trinket the Storm King 'acquired' in Abyssinia. A magic gem known as the Misfortune Malachite. Supposedly, it contains great power... But also brings disaster. The Storm King thought to use it for his own purposes.... Of course, that should never happen now. But you can us it for YOUR gain.
  • Celaeno:... I... No! I never trusted magic much, and besides... I'll do NOTHING that puts my crew at risk. I'll put this on one of the empty ships for now, until I decide what to do with it. Come with me, Strife!
  • Strife: As you wish! (They swung over to another ship where Lix was seen manning the steering wheel)
  • Lix: Ahoy, cap'n!
  • Celaeno: Ahoy, Lix! Anything to report?
  • Lix: Clear skies, cap'n! I did hear scratching below decks earlier. Might be rats.
  • (Capper):... And that's when you met us-
  • (Celaeno): AND that's when I met you!
  • Celaeno: Rats! Ugh! It's always something- (She opens a crate only for Chummer to come out cat-yelling) WAAAHHHH!!!
  • Chummer: D-DON'T COME ANY CLOSER! I'LL KNOCK YOUR LIGHTS OUT!!! (Celaeno picked him up angrily)
  • Capper: Chummer!
  • Celaeno: What in the sky is happening here? What are a couple of Abyssinians doing on this ship? You're a LONG way from home, fellas!
  • Chummer: LEMME DOWN, YA PALOOKA!!
  • Capper: Please, let him go!
  • Strife: They must have stowed away after the Storm King attacked their home.
  • Celaeno: (In Chummer's worried face) Is that so? (Chummer smiled innocently) Well, I've no use for stowaways!... But I can ALWAYS use two more crewmembers! You two need a bath and some food, am I right?
  • Chummer: Uh...
  • Capper: Yeah!
  • Celaeno: Head up to the main ship! I'll be along shortly! Hop to it, mates!
  • Chummer: Yes, captain!
  • Capper: Y-Yes!
  • Strife:... Why are you doing this?
  • Celaeno: These kids are far from home without a friend in the world! Who else is gonna look after them? (A shadow faded upon them)
  • Strife: But it is not your responsi... What is this darkness?
  • Celaeno: A storm?... No! (They saw the Storm King's zeppelin above with crackling lightning)
  • Strife: It's the Storm King! We must flee!
  • Celaeno: Oh no! THE CREW!
  • Strife: MY TREASURE!
  • Lix: CAPTAIN! (The ship was about to be boarded as lines were shot onto their ship)
  • Celaeno: GET US MOVING!
  • Parrot Pirate #2: I'M TRYING! I THINK THEY'VE SPEARED OUR RUDDER!
  • Parrot Pirate #3: WE'RE CAUGHT!!!
  • Storm King: (Storm Guards swung on as he came out of the ship)... So... THAT was a short-lived escape, huh?
  • Strife: Storm King!... You... Completed your repairs sooner than I expected. I suppose I am to be punished.
  • Storm King: DAMN RIGHT! (He booted him off the ship and off towards the ground)... I listened to him talk, once... Look where it got me! But enough about him! Let's talk about you and your crew! You ARE the captain, right? (He kisses her hand as she was disgusted)
  • Celaeno: My name is Celaeno!
  • Storm King: Captain Celaeno! That's fine! That's PERFECT! Now, you and your crew did steal from me... But you did a DARN good job of it! I can respect that kind of skill, captain! I'd like to offer you a job!
  • Celaeno: A JOB?
  • Storm King: A position! An opportunity! After the unexpected departure of my right-hand creature... Well, we've got an opening! I'd like YOU to fill that role!
  • Celaeno: ME?!?
  • Storm King: Sure! Plotting invasions, organizing the fleet. Of course, your OWN crew will have to go! I need NEW cargo haulers for one!
  • (Rainbow Dash):... And this is how you got roped into-
  • (Celaeno): And THIS is how I got roped into his slavery!
  • Celaeno: LEAVE MY CREW?!? NEVER!!!
  • Storm King: Well then, perhaps-
  • Storm Guard: SIR! ONE OF THE SHIPS IS ESCAPING!
  • Storm King: WHAT?!? HARPOON THEM! NOW!
  • Celaeno: The kids!
  • Storm King: YES, SIR!
  • Celaeno: NO! (She stopped the guard and threw the harpoon) Ha- (Storm King grabbed her by the neck) HRK!!
  • Storm King: Congratulations, captain! You helped ONE ship escape my grasp! If you're SO devoted to your crew... I suppose you SHOULD be allowed to stay together! Like I said... I ALWAYS NEED MORE CARGO HAULERS!!!... And just to make sure you don't think of defying my orders like Strife did... (He injured her leg as she screamed as blood was apparent and he put her down)... Consider THAT a taste of what I will do to you if you DO!... But that's clearly not enough! BOYS?!? (A Storm Guard shot a blue parrot pirate with a harpoon, impaling him)
  • Celaeno: BLUE-EYE!!! (He fell off the ship to his death as the Storm Guard tore the harpoon out) NOOOOOOO!!!!
  • Grubber: YOU SHOW HIM, BOSS!!!
  • Storm King: So, here's the deal, you birdbrains! You are MY carrier pigeons! You step out of line, OR fail me... You will pay the price with ANOTHER crew member, and if the failure is among the worse... Your captain will say goodbye to her OTHER leg! (He hands them a rule book)... We'll be watching you... CLOSELY!
  • (Capper):... Sorry, for leaving you after all THAT, captain!
  • (Celaeno): Well, you would've been victimized anyway. You DID end up crashing near Klugetown with the Malachite after all that. If anything, you took that karma-cursed rock off our hands.
  • (Nimbus): Quite. As for me?... Well... (He landed in an uncharted land as the impact turned him to cloud as he reformed himself)
  • Strife:... F*****g asshole!... (Sighs)... There goes my one chance to save my home... (He left gloomily and walked off)

Present

  • Nimbus: And so, after travelling a great distance... I met the Guardians of Harmony in one of their missions, and... Well, here we are!
  • Celaeno:... I'm so sorry we couldn't help you, St... Nimbus.
  • Nimbus: Well, it's not like you could've stood a chance given he injured your leg and killed much of your crew. Explains why only a few of you are left.
  • Lix: Yes. Failure after failure meant we lose more of our crew. It's why we weren't going to defy him so easily. But luckily, Rainbow was here to remind me that life was worth defying some cloven-hoof Storm King's orders, and toss them into the ocean!
  • Nimbus:... I'm proud of you, Celaeno.
  • Icky:... So, where exactly is Nimbary-
  • Strife-Nimbus: I'll ask the questions here! Chummer, what is the reason for exposing our sanctum?
  • Chummer: Well, it's kinda related to our new Storm King dilemma. That ape-satyr is not only alive again, but made good on his threat to get even and went after Equestria again. Now nearly every corner of the world is under a massive halo of storms, just to get to his former commander Tempest, and he's kidnapped many people to get to her. That's why... These heroes need some help finding her.
  • Strife-Nimbus: Not surprising. He was always the vengeful sort. But that only partially explains why they're here.
  • Chummer: Well... They, kinda need our help with him this time around. Like I said, he's after Tempest, and they've had a hard time getting around with those crazy storms disrupting the turbulence and they crashed in Klugetown. They saved us from our Roc problem and saved us from that Kingpin guy's scheme of keeping it in crime by hiding it's eggs and motivating it to destroy it enough times to keep it lawless, so we must pay them back with aid. With all those raging storms, and with some likely coming here since Stormy's feeling you're gonna be harboring us, especially with... His brother watching us... You Guardians will DEFINITELY need their help as much as we need ours.
  • Strife-Nimbus:... (Sighs) I warned Stratus that the Storm King doesn't fall so easily. He survived worse than what he was put through in the past. Being smashed to pieces is like having a broken arm compared to him. He's like a giant hairy cockroach.
  • Dr. Cockroach: I couldn't have said it better... AND I'M A COCKROACH MAN!!!
  • Chummer: So, I hoped to take these guys to Stratus to offer some hope for both of us.
  • Strife-Nimbus: Sadly, you couldn't have come at a more inopportune time. He's away on a mission to stop an Orc Horde from invading the Deerlands. Those poor things have already had it rough with that Well-To-Do disgrace's exploits, so an Orc raid is the LAST thing they need. They think of all life in the forest, INCLUDING THEIR TREES, as sacred and as equal as any other person, so a single Orc tearing down a single tree is sure to set them off.
  • Twilight: Believe me, we know! Bramble scolded us for simply trying to using a tree to get across a ledge.
  • Strife-Nimbus: Duly noted. So, he might not be back in time to respond to you all.
  • Icky: But you guys will still help us, right?
  • Strife-Nimbus: Yes, but only with Stratus available. The Guardian Elders are.... Strict about us doing anything without his presence. Espeically because of his father in the Council. He wants Stratus to be able to resolve every single thing of concern to the Guardians. Personally, a lot more work could've been done if we didn't always have to wait for Stratus every once in a while.
  • Icky: Tch, no wonder we keep coming back here to save Equestria from THE THOUSANDS OF OTHER THREATS YOU GUYS PROBULY SHOULD'VE LONG COVERED!! Strongest defenders of the world my ass!
  • Strife-Nimbus: Uh, there's likely donkey-like creatures around, as well as any related equines, and SOME of them are from lands where that's still offensive, so you'd best watch your language.
  • Icky:... (Sighs) That's the ONE downside of being in a world like this.
  • Nimbus: But I understand your... Disappointment, nonetheless! Believe me when I say Stratus would love to have the Guardians do more than just keep our fight with the likes of the Storm King, but unless the Elders decide that we do more than just deal with The Storm King, it's out of our hands, hooves, or anything else.
  • Lord Shen:... (Quietly to the other Lodgers) Note to ourselves, everyone: Let's see if we can fix this political debacle with the Guardians of Harmony after we attend with the Storm King issue. (The Lodgers agreed)
  • Strife-Nimbus: But to not let you go empty-handed, I will offer directions to find Stratus during his mission. Knowing him, he's probably already fighting the Orc Horde's leader outside Deerland boundaries in a literal blaze of glory.
  • Spike:... Define, LITERAL blaze of glory.
  • Strife-Nimbus: Let's just say... I hope any foe of his, has very good fire insurance, if you catch my drift.
  • SpongeBob:... Yikes.
  • Squidward: Well if that's true, then I hate to be those Orcs right now.
  • Strife-Nimbus: Relax. They are as merciful as they can, depending upon the warrior fighting. Come with me. You must speak your wishes to the Elders. If you want our aid, then you need to earn their trust. Especially you, Capper!
  • Capper: Hmmph! I can see you didn't change much since you left Stormy!
  • Strife-Nimbus: Some habits don't normally die hard. Now let's move.

Elder Chamber Room

  • Twilight: (They arrived as they saw countless councilors of differing mythical creatures circling in a room similar to the courtroom of Harry Potter 5, only with more native features)... Far out!
  • Starry Horse: Chummer! Nimbus! Why I ask are these strangers here? I must remind you we are supposed to be hiding!
  • Twilight:... Is that, an Equuleus from the Northern Constellatia polar lands?
  • Trixie:... As in the same lands where the Ursa Minor and Major are native to?
  • Strife-Nimbus: Miss Mira, hear us out! They are foreigners. They have come claiming to wish to stop Storm King, claiming to have done it before.
  • Equuleus (Mira): Hmm... I see.
  • Three-Eyed Cyclops: But they look like they're not good at heroism.
  • Bicorn: Don't be so sure, Triskelion! Looks can be deceiving. It's not what their minds say! They are apparently otherworldly legends. Though, ones that are laughable at that.
  • Equestrian Unicorn: And SOME of them seem to come from Equestria. (Sighs) I can't seem to remember much since I saved Celestia and the world from the Pony of Shadows and got my fancy mark!
  • Starlight: NO WAY! You got a fancy mark, too?
  • Unicorn:... Why, yes. Why?
  • Starlight: We just met a pony with a fancy mark recently.
  • Twilight:... Wait... Pony of Shadows... Celestia?... Are you by chance related to that Halo Epiphany legend Starswirl was always talking about?
  • Unicorn: You're looking at her!
  • Twilight:... OH... MY... GOSH!!!
  • Unicorn (Halo): Oh, boy! Another fangasmic visit!
  • Soothsayer: Twilight, calm yourself! We have matters to attend to!
  • Twilight:... (She does so)... Right! Anyway, we were told you tangoed with Storm King before.
  • Almiraj: We have. But since he grew stronger and outwitted our skills and strategy, battling us so much to predict our moves, we had to hide as his forces adapted as he did. He exiled us here, and he has a brother here that ensures we stay out of his way. And trust me... He ALWAYS knows what we do.
  • Qilin: So, if you feel like you can take this threat, then maybe we'll consider helping you. However, we may have to lead down some terms of your stay.
  • Capper: Shoot, my good Qilin!
  • Icky: JUST GETTING IT OUT THERE: NO BLOOD SACRIFICES OR ANY FREAKY BODY PART LOSS S*** YOU WOULD DO!!
  • Bicorn:... We have none of those sort've things!
  • Icky:... Okay, good!
  • Discord: Yeesh, Ickster, I know we're outside Equestria, but I'm sure even THEY'D NEVER stoop to THAT level. Back when I was evil, I tended to do that as a way to prank people, as no violence was apparent.
  • White Horse: (With an unenfusiastic face, sarcasticly) Oh yes, the infamous yet reformed Discord is with you. (Kinda Disgusted) I could smell your chaos energy from here.
  • Discord: Guilty as charged.
  • Qilin: Now, onto the ground rules: Now that you know where we are, you must not reveal it to anyone.
  • Icky: "You live in an island surrounded by magical island whales, I don't think anyone not a crazed myth enfusiest would really believe us either way."
  • Phil: But above all: We never planned on it. With Storm King running amuck, you'd definitely need your secret being safe with us. So, our lips are sealed!
  • Qilin: Splendid.
  • Mira: Second term: If you have our aid, you are required to earn our trust and support by helping us with whatever threatens us.
  • Shenzi: PBBBBBT, easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy! We're the Shell Lodge Squad! Protecting mythical worlds, especially the likes of Mythos, is our specialty.
  • Aries: Heh, you all seem pretty accepting.
  • Arion: Indeed. We thought it sounded like a lot of effort. Then again, we didn't expect an army's worth of heroes, so much, you'd normally never fit in a single room.
  • Icky: "TVTropes would like to enlighten you on that."
  • Pang Bing: It's nothing we haven't heard before. Trust us.
  • Sleipnir: (Thor-like voice and accent) And next, you must follow our guidance and our rules. And in case that is too troublesome, you are allowed to prove yourselves to us if you are to show you're good enough, AND you may be allowed to show that your likely-normal habits ARE at least tolerable. You seem too nonsensical to be such.
  • Boss Wolf: Wow, Thor-voice, THAT'S what we call a lot of effort. We-
  • Soothsayer: We shall not fail to prove it. (Boss Wolf was shocked) Everyone, we must do what we can for them if they are to trust us. We will simply have to roll with it. We cannot stop them from being hesitant. After all, we do not necessarily have a flawless and responsible track record.
  • Bubbha: Well, thanks for being the voice of reason!
  • Icky: Aw come on, Sooth, our record's not THAT flimsy!
  • History Sprite: (She showed up) Well, let's see what your hero records have to say about that, shall we? (Icky made a surprised face at the Sprite's words) (She opens a scroll)... Well, in my opinion, you seem to abuse higher powers like that of time lords, albeit for understandable reasons like unfixable situations, you barely take any of your enemies seriously, lack of originality on their parts aside, though personally, yeah, villains do need to start being more original then the same song and dance rotine, so that is not much of a pet peeve. But you also have a habit of being mean-spirited to each other, irresponsible, you get yourselves in dilly-dallies, the sponge is responsible for terrorism in the non-traditional and more innocent sense, the starfish seems too dumb to live, the squid is pretty mean and is beaten down by karma, BTW, gimme an appointment for my karma fairy friend to not cause any mischief, the panda has a long history of egotism and incompetence, and Gazelle? Well, there is absolutely no complaints besides the common one of you winning too easily, as your power has been shared by other warriors in the past and even THEY have been debunked even with the power of the legendary Lightflies and Mothrons, some of you have attempted to harm children in your early years, many of you are clumsy, flawed, incompetent, have a long record of failures of losing Princesses of Heart, though it's no big deal as you did your best, and... Well, let's be honest, we'll be here all day if I go on with your flimsies! So, you must understand why you must prove yourselves worthy of our trust.
  • Icky: "...... Hey no one's perfect."
  • Monoceros: Fair of a point as that is, Historia is correct. We need to trust you can pull this off, because Storm King didn't do this for this long without cutting corners.
  • Bubbha: "Aw shucks, how bad can he be? He looks like the kind of feller that hides behind cheap palor tricks and cheatin'."
  • Monoceros: Try to look at this in our perspective. He is a NOTORIOUS strategist. Takes after his infamous father, which I have read through Historia has just passed away. Now, Storm King is honoring his name by using his staff, the Staff of Subjuncta.
  • Discord: We kinda got the idea from the big doofus himself. His father's some total big-shot notorious tyrant who 'couldn't be stopped'. Honestly, I heard a lot of 'unstoppable' evils before and it gets BORING after a while. Unstoppable is not a true title, as even those on par with GODS can be stoppable! It's only a matter of time before you just get the appropriate solution to the problem. Now that he's dead, Storm King's pretty desperate to follow his old man's footsteps. Pffh, daddy's boy.
  • Puss: So si, mi amigos, you must understand why we need the aid of people who have tangoed with him more times than naught.
  • Gazelle: We will do what we can to earn your trust. In fact, we can do it right now. Is there anything causing trouble here in particular, besides the brother which we'll save for later?
  • Mira: Well... There is the Boggart crime lord Septimus Croft, but-
  • Duke: DONE! Let's head out, Lodger- (Lord Shen pulled him right back) OW, OW, OW, OW, OOOOOWWW!!!
  • Lord Shen: The star-spangled equiness wasn't finished, weasel!!
  • Mira:... As I was saying, Septimus is not an easy opponent, even for us. He possesses a relic called The Omniscience Opal. It gives him near-unlimited power, and it's been a challenge for even us to get that from him and an even BIGGER challenge to destroy it without causing singularities. As long as he has that accursed stone, he's essentially unstoppable. I recommend you do not take the risk.
  • Gazelle: Well... I still say we should. If it means getting your full on trust, then I say, trae el reto!
  • Axex: Be careful out there, then! He can shapeshift, AND he can stop you in your tracks before you lay a hand on him-
  • Discord: Oh, screw that noise! Just to save us a filler-tastic voyage given time's of the essence, I would like to ask for a picture of the guy!
  • Historia: (Sighs) I'm scared to see what happens, given your reputation, but fine! (She give him just that)
  • Discord:... Be right back! (Teleports out)

Unspecified Magic Hideout

  • Septimus: (He was seen with the Opal having a meeting with his various misfit minions) Alright, gentlemen! I gathered you all here today to talk about a big announcment. Today, we're going to make the biggest heist in the history of the world. We are going to- (Discord appeared as Septimus makes a surprsied face and stammers comically) WHAT IN THE ALICORN GODS?!?
  • Discord: I'll take THAT! (He grabbed the Opal and swallowed it whole, and did The Simpsons burp).... That was some quality powerful jewelry.
  • Septimus: Wha... WHAT'VE YOU DONE?!? YOU ATE MY MOST POWERFUL STONE, YOU MISH-MASH SPARE PARTS COLLODGE!! WHY I OUGHTA-
  • Discord: BOOP! (He pokes him and turns him into a baby Boggart, leaving him to start crying as Discord picked him up)... Guys? You may want to consider new careers! Chao! (He disappears with Baby Septimus)
  • Misfit Goon #1:... Does that mean the meeting's over?
  • Misfit Goon #2: Well, frick, that means Septimus's reign is over... So, who's up for pizza? (The misfit goons agreed to this)

Elder Room

  • Discord: (He teleported back with the crying baby Septimus) VOILA! One bouncing baby crime lord ready for time out!
  • Mira: WHAT IN THE-HOW DID YOU-BUT-BUT-BUT-HOW DID YOU-
  • Discord: Innate Draconequus location knowledge, GA-DOI!!!
  • Twilight: DISCORD!
  • Discord: Okay, okay, I'll play it straight, Twilight! I just followed where the Opal was omitting it's power and it lead me to a generic evil crime lair. The rest was history!
  • Axex: But, but, what about the Opal-
  • Discord: It was delish! (Burps again)
  • White Horse:... That Opal... Was the most powerful and devastating jewel in all of our world's existence... AND YOU DESTROYED IT BY EATING IT LIKE A BON-BON?!? JUST LIKE THAT?!?
  • Discord: Yup. It was a five star meal! No need to thank me! (The Lodgers and others face-palmed/hoofed/etc) The look on your faces is thanks enough!
  • Bicorn:... Well, you're very proficient, at the least!
  • Cyclops: Hold up, you were DEFINITELY not supposed to eat it!
  • Discord: Oh, what's gonna happen? Am I gonna BLOW UP?!?
  • Cyclops: No, worse. You'll have magically-radiating and explosive diarrhea. (A glass shatter was heard as Discord was shocked)...
  • Axex:... And then THAT, in of itself, blows up!
  • Squidward: Most unoriginal reused joke much?
  • Discord: (His stomach ached)... Uh... Exqueeze me for a second! (He quickly gives Fluttershy the babified Septimus and teleported away)...
  • Fluttershy:... You know? Despite what you are known for... You're actually kinda cute! Coochie-Coochie-Coo! (Starts playing with Baby Septimus as he giggled)

Scourge Imperial Lair

  • (Meng Tao): (He was heard using the men's room in the Scourge Imperial Bathroom humming to himself as poots were heard) Ugggh, gotta cut back on the truffles! All that fiber turns my intestines into a nasty log flume! Hopefully this ROTTEN smell isn't gonna wind up going far thanks to the air fresheners Karnage install- (A flash was heard inside) DAHHH!!! THE FORMER LEAGUE BEAST?!? WHAT'RE YOU DOING HERE?!?... Oh, I see! Have you decided to leave your reformed life and join with the Imperial Scourge? Your choas magic will greatly compliment our anti-fairy members' bad karma magic! Togather, we will rule the-
  • (Discord): BATHROOM EMERGENCY!
  • (Meng Tao): Wait, what?!? (A magical-based sound was heard, and Meng was like this as the chaotic magic explosion was a miniature version of the T2 Judgment Day explosion, turning everything in it's blast radius into something combined with Discord's chaotic scenery, as well as all variants of Wonderland)
Wtf boom

Wtf boom

  • (Discord): Aahhhhh, bliss!

Guardian Temple

  • Discord: (He teleported back) WHEW! That felt good!
  • Twilight:... What, did, you, do?
  • Discord: Took the magical diarrhea to the Scourge Imperial Base. Should I fix it?
  • Lord Shen: Yes, you most certainly should!
  • Discord:... I dunno, my magic combined with that Opal might not be easy to cleanse. It COULD provide a quarantine from any BIONICLE inhabitants at their mercy, but as far as I know, nobody got hurt apart from the Scourge Imperials, but, they're jerks anyway.
  • Merlin:... And I thought Deadpool was needlessly chaotic with trying to keep our adventures where they should be.
  • Discord: Oh, he's a close second! A VERY good close second, but I'm the original choas master here! He's just a Looney Tune on fourth wall breaking steroids that got trapped in a Marvel character's body!
  • Strife-Nimbus: (He stared blankly at Chummer who nervously laughed)... (Sarcastically) Fine choices indeed!
  • Chummer:... At least... They get the job done quickly? (Nervously laughs as Strife-Nimbus sighed)
  • Strife-Nimbus:... No offense, misfits, but you all are in DIRE need of proper discipline!
  • Discord: Oh come on! I destroyed the Opal, then captured AND babified Don Notagoblin, didn't I?
  • Mira: Yes, but you lack self-control. Your relocation had jeopardized other innocents.
  • Discord: Eh, they're robots!
  • Kowalski: They're bio-androids! They still count as living people!
  • Mira: My point exactly. So, this good deed does not merit you our trust.
  • Lord Shen:... (To Discord) IDIOT!! (He pounced on Discord and proceeded to beat him up)
  • Discord: OW, OW, STOP IT, OWWWW!! YOUR HAND-WINGS ARE COLD, YOOOOOOOOW!!
  • Gazelle:... (Sighs) Well, guys, we'll have to do it the old-fashioned way, by defeating Storm King with limited assistance.
  • Thunderclap: What the- SERIOUSLY?!? We come all this way for nothing?! WELL YOU OLD F*****S ARE MIGHTY UNGRATEFUL!! (The Elders gasped)
  • Twilight: THUNDERCLAP!!! (Chummer started to wear a paper bag on his head in embarrassment) DON'T MAKE-
  • Thunderclap: I MEAN, COME ON!! WE GOT YOU THE UGLY CRIME BOSS GUY, DIDN'T WE?!? SHOULDN'T THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY AT ALL?!? ALSO, YOU DIDN'T EXACTLY WARN HIM ABOUT WHAT EATING A STUPID SHINY MAGICAL STONE DOES!! ISN'T THAT YOUR OWN FAULTS?!? YOU GUYS ARE MISERABLE, OLD, F***TARDS!! (Trixie hid her face in her hat)
  • Twilight: (She teleported in front of Thunderclap nervously laughing) Oh, that Thunderclap! He takes too much from Icky! These days, everypony thinks of him as QUITE the scream! We'll, we'll just be on our way then! Byyyyye!! (They teleported out)
  • Cyclops:... Every, single, threat, prior to and after Storm King, lost, to the likes of them?
  • Axex: It's either they don't make villains like they used to, or it's that any random imbecile can be a hero these days!
  • White Horse: I dare even say, it could be both! (The Elders began to leave)
  • Strife Nimbus: (He saw Chummer's shocked and appalled face upon removing the paper bag as he sighed)... Your heart was in the right place, Chummer. You simply didn't count on them to be so... Chaotic! (He disappeared in smoke as Chummer looked down in sadness)

Outside Temple

  • Capper: (The heroes were about to leave) Well, THAT ended poorly! We didn't even get to see Stratus at all!
  • Twilight: NO THANKS TO THUNDERCLAP!!! WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING INSULTING THEM LIKE THAT, YOU FREAKING JACKASS?!?
  • Thunderclap: ME?!? THEY WERE BEING DIFFICULT! I SAID WHAT I HAD TO SAY! EVEN IF DISCORD KINDA BUM-RUSHED IT, FACT OF THE MATTER IS, HE STILL DID THE JOB, AND THAT'S NOT ENOUGH FOR THOSE OLD F*****S?!? I HAVE NO SHAME, IN CALLING OUT THEIR STIFFY-STUFFY BULLS***!!
  • ???: ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? (Chummer came in stomping down) YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO INSULT THEM FOR BEING CAUTIOUS?!?
  • Bubbha: Look, to give the storm-worshipper credit, them oldsters should at least be happy that we get things done, even if it's as sloppy as how Pervis' eats a cattle.
  • Chummer: I'm not against telling them that they shouldn't miss the point! I actually agree with you people on THAT front!! What I AM against, IS THEM BEING INSULTED IN THE MIDST OF EVEN THE BEST DAMN ARGUMENT!! THEY ARE THE WISEST THIS LAND HAD TO OFFER, AND YOU DEMEAN THEM, IN FRONT OF ME?!? HOW COULD YOU ALL EMBARRASS ME LIKE THAT!? I really wanted to help you guys with your problem, but you give the Elders nothing but reasons to be unsure about you guys, AND MADE IT WORSE BY INSULTING THEM?!? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?
  • Icky: Don't be too disappointed! You're not the first one to get a dumb first impression of us!
  • Chummer:... THIS SORT'VE THING HAPPENED, BEFORE?!?
  • Mr. Krabs: 70-90 times, as a matter of fact! (Chummer was shocked)... That made it worse, didn't it?
  • Squidward: Ya think?!?
  • Chummer:... My reputation, as a Guardian, IS RUINED!!! (Looks angerly at Capper as he chuckled innocently) WAS THIS PART OF A REVENGE PLOY TO MAKE ME LOOK BAD AT MY NEW LIFE OVER THAT ONE BETRAYAL?!?
  • Capper: Hey, now, let's not jump to conclusions! I'm as surprised as you are that they're this wacky! This is my first time meeting them, too! I didn't think they would pull that stunt!
  • Chummer: You know what? I gave you a chance, but your 'friends' just blew it! If Skyranger comes back and berates me for this, it'll be YOUR fault! Just... Just do all of Questra a favor, and just not show your humiliating mouths, beaks, or whatever, in public, or learn to think before you speak! YOU DON'T WANNA TRUST ME?!? THEN, FINE!!! DON'T!!! YOU DIDN'T NEED ME FOR MUCH ANYWAY!!! I HOPE YOU ALL DIE FOR THOSE ANTICS SOMEDAY... Or, to go off on a less harsh note if that was too offensive, that it does nothing but make saving Equestria more difficult than it really should be! (He stormed off into his room as Twilight was slowly growing angry at what just occurred)
  • Gazelle: (Sighs) Aye dios mio! You all are so random in your first impressions, you just disappointed new acquaintances!
  • Thunderclap: Hey, it's their fault for not trusting us! (Twilight got more angry at that) I mean, that's what they get for being so difficult! NOBODY likes people who don't listen to us OR act THIS difficult! I mean, I can get behind that they didn't like how Discord handled that s***-stain of a booger or boogie or whatever the hell he was, but that's no excuse for them to be a bunch of ungrateful d***s and c**ts about it!! They're WRONG in rejecting us-
  • Twilight: NO! YOU GUYS ONLY SERVED TO MAKE THEM RIGHT! (Everyone was surprised of her massive outburst)
  • Shifu:... Oh, no! I think we may've proved her fears!
  • Twilight: I TOLD YOU THAT THIS MISSION REQUIRED NO NONSENSE FROM THE BEGINNING!! YOU JUST BLEW OUR CHANCES LIKE DUMBASSES BY INSULTING THEM IN THEIR FACES!! You think I'm scared to trust you with this mission?!? Well, THAT ONLY PROVED IT!
  • Icky: Hey, to be fair, Discord's the one who basically Deadpooled his way to stop that Sent-a-Pus guy-
  • Twilight: SEPTIMUS!!
  • Icky: Whatever, he's not an important character, so I'm not gonna bother remembering his name!
  • Twilight: HE WAS AS MUCH A TORMENTER AS STORM KING, YOU IDIOT!!!
  • Icky: Again, NOT, AN IMPORTANT, CHARACTER, SO HIS LIFE STORY'S IRRELEVANT!!! Point is, it's kinda mostly Discord's fault, along with eating something that made him go bathroom emergency on the Scourge Imperial Dorks, with advantages and disadvantages! And even then, it was mainly Thunderclap who snapped at them! He once did the same s*** to Al Baldwin Eagle several episodes back over his technophobe crap.
  • Trixie: Indeed. Twilight, Thunderclap obviously didn't know any better! He gets too passionate at times.
  • Twilight: THAT'S NO EXCUSE! IF WE'RE GONNA STOP STORM KING, WE GOTTA CUT OUT THAT BULLS***, AND NOT MAKE OURSELVES LOOK LIKE JOKES TO HIGHER-UPS LIKE THEM!!! WHAT DO THE HIGH COUNCIL EVEN SEE IN YOU MORONS?!? (The Lodgers gasped)
  • SpongeBob: (He started to whimper with Patrick)
  • Squidward: (He had the same steaming-mad reaction as when SpongeBob broke his bassinet in Naughty Nautical Neighbors)
  • Lord Shen: (He stared with a disapproving stare)
  • Iago: (Stern Scowl) Ya know, Twi, Celestia IS a part of the High Council!! What does that say about her when you criticized them, beccause guess what? She trusts us just as much as the others do, cause- (Twilight sparked with dark magic to scare Iago into shutting up) YOW!!
  • Shifu: Twilight, I'm appalled at you! That little comment, AND scare, is WAY too far!
  • Baloo: I'm with Shifu! That's going too far!
  • Twilight: OH, COME ON SHIFU, AS A HIGH COUNCILOR, BE HONEST! HOW DO YOU TOLERATE THESE, CLOWNS MASCARADING THEMSELVES AS HEROES?!?
  • Discord: (Dubbed as Deadpool) We are NOT, clowns, your highness!! Do you see a flying space circus instead of a flying hot-rod-painted van that started out with the LAMEST fuel source of all time? I don't think so- (Twilight scared him into shrinking with a dark magic monstrous face)... Shutting up!
  • Twilight: WHY ARE YOU DEFENDING THEM?!? YOU'RE NOT EVEN A MEMBER!! HECK, YOU USED TO BE WITH THEIR ENEMIES!!
  • Discord: Well, I just felt that it wasn't just them being insulted, I-
  • Twilight: YOUR ANTICS ARE JUST AS UNPRODUCTIVE AS THEY ARE BEING RIGHT NOW, SO JUST-
  • Icky: No, I'm with the freak of nature! Now you're just being as bitchy as your voice sister, that Christian zealot Disney princess ripoff herself, Princess Clara from Drawn Together now, Twi!
  • Shifu: Now let's calm down before we say something we'll regret-
  • Twilight: ANSWER THE QUESTION!
  • Shifu: WE JUST DO, OKAY?!?... (Sighs)... We may not be the kind of heroes, some people want, but we ARE the heroes they need, and that's always better than ideal heroes, and certainly better, than none at all!
  • Twilight:... So... You guys just think it's no big deal to act unprofessional, even to people as professional as this? What if this was a council on par with the Queen of Hearts?
  • Icky: Then we would've ended up with a subplot like with the Shangri-La Tanukis where-
  • Twilight: LEMME REPHRASE THAT, THEN!! WHAT IF THEY ENDED UP GETTING TOO OFFENDED BY THUNDERCLAP'S WORDS THAT THEY WOULD HAVE US RUINED AS HEROES?!?
  • Icky: Look, if it helps, the fact they even allowed us to turn tail and ran, shows that they're above revenge for petty insults and are clearly the stiff-upper-lib types! And hey, again, DISCORD'S the one you should be upset with by going Deadpool on everyone!! And Thunderclap obviously only got too upset!! And in all honesty, I agree with him! Those geezers should be happy that Send-a-P***y-
  • Twilight: SEPTIMUS, CELESTIA DAMMIT!! I TOLD YOU!!!
  • Icky: And I told YOU, UNIMPORTANT CHARACTER WITH IRRELEVANT INFO!! LET IT GO!!! At least they should be happy that the f*****'s not gonna f*** someone's s*** up anymore! Now, do I agree that Discord should've been more considerate about WHERE he dropped the s***load express? Well yeah! But what did you expect from someone who used to be nothing but a choatic mess, litterally, and metathoricly?!? He literally can't survive without being a randomly chaotic twat thanks to a certain episode in the show and a failsafe we eventually fixed, and even then, he was actually WORSE as an orderly guy when you bring up the Accord fiasco in the comics!! And even then, to be fair with Discord, he saved us from wasting our mission with Storm King through dealing with someone who most likely existed as an homage to old school Tirek and was likely gonna be PRETTY by the numbers! Misfit quirky minions, evil hidden fortress, booby traps to make Djon a dope out of, perhaps even another Chimera girl who ends up getting into a love triangle crap with OUR Chimera over Chi Fu?! If anything, YOU, YOURSELF, SHOULD BE HAPPY THAT WE'RE STILL ON TRACK TO WRECK THE STORM KING'S S*** AND NOT BEING TOO BUSY WITH A GUY WHO PROBABLY HAD NO INTENTIONS TO EVEN CAUSE EQUESTRIA TROUBLE!! MAYBE ROB SOMETHING MAJOR FOR A LIKELY UNRELATED PLAN, BUT STILL! YOU PROBABLY WOULD'VE ENDED UP BITCHING AND MOANING ON HOW IT DISTRACTED US FROM DEALING WITH GOAT-YETI PSEUDO-HADES!!
  • Gilda: Icky has a damn good point, Twi! That Septimus guy is most likely not even WITH Storm King and would've been an unrelated baddie we needlessly made an enemy out of for a would've-been future episode later in the season to have to freaking deal with!
  • Twilight: I WOULD'VE COPED WITH IT IF IT MEANT EARNING THEIR TRUST!! OF WHICH YOU RUINED?!
  • Shrek: WE COULD'VE JUST AS EASILY HAD SAID THAT DISCORD IS MOSTLY AN ALLY AND NOT A DIRECT MEMBER OF THE LODGE!! We would've been able to at least reason with them a bit had Thunderclap not opened his big beak!
  • Twilight: UGHHHHHH!!! THIS IS EXACTLY MY POINT HERE! YOU MAKE STUPID DECISIONS, WHEN THERE'S THINGS YOU SHOULD'VE THOUGHT OF EARLIER!!! THIS, IS WHY I'M SCARED THAT WE'D ANGER MUCH HIGHER HEROES LIKE THESE!! NOW YOU MAKE US LOOK LIKE BIG JERKS AND RETARDED JOKES?!?
  • Patrick: HEY!! AT LEAST WE'RE EFFECTIVE BIG JERKS AND RETARDED JOKES THAT STILL CAPTURED A BAD GUY!!
  • Squidward: COULD YOU NOT BE STUPID HERE FOR ONCE IN YOUR NEPTUNE-DAMNED LIFE?!?
  • Merlin: Are you saying you really DON'T trust us?
  • Twilight: NO! I'm not making the same mistake twice! I'm saying I don't trust you with a mission as serious as this! After all we saw outside Equestria the last few times, the world is NOT gonna tolerate frivolous attitudes like YOURS!
  • Trixie: Ya know, that Klugetown place came to appreciate us!
  • Twilight: THAT WAS MOSTLY BECAUSE OF FLUTTERSHY SAVING THE TOWN FROM THE ROC AND RARITY GIVING IT'S FUTURE LEADER A CHANCE TO SET IT BACK ON THE RIGHT PATH!! WHAT'S THE LODGE DONE FOR THEM ASIDE FROM ICKY KNOCKING OVER AN OLD WOMAN AND SHEN THREATENING GOSSIPERS?!?
  • Icky: HEY, SHE WAS BEING A BITCH!! And hey, Pinkie Pie got her back up on her feet!
  • Lord Shen: And I did NOT threaten them as I more sternly got them to mind their own business!
  • Po: And don't you forget that I helped Rainbow Dash fight off some creeps harassing a poor chicken!
  • Merlin: And that my magic along with others' have kept the town from falling apart thanks to another chase AND how I saved Fluttershy from Verko's revenge attempt! I even forseen that Mendax had ill intentions even without that eight-legged stinging spoiler alert on his shoulders! It was ALL in his name for God's sake!
  • Lord Shen: And don't forget that we still managed to escape the Storm King beforehand!!
  • Icky: With a sting in the butt for me!
  • Lord Shen: BESIDES THE POINT! That PROVES that our methods, though not always accurate, is still effective and rings true in the end! So try to learn to NOT look a gift horse in the mouth!! (Realizes that he was among ponies)... Not meaning any racial disrespect, I mean!
  • Panic: Twilight, we have been in serious lands and worlds before! IN FACT, THEY'RE A DIME A DOZEN WHEREVER WE GO!!! We're always gonna end up giving stupid first impressions, but we win them over in the end! There's that at least.
  • Twilight: THIS IS THE HOME OF THE PUREST BEINGS IN THE UUNIVERSES! THIS IS CLEARLY DIFFERENT! Since the Chaos Wars, all ponies centered themselves into the land of Equestria, and haven't been outside Equestria aside from several exceptions. Tempest told me that ponies were hardly seen outside Equestria, and they are rarely as clean-minded as we Equestrians are, and given the power of friendship hasn't left Equestria for eons, this world is too serious to tolerate any nonsense, BECAUSE FRIENDSHIP IS NEEDED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD IF THE WINDIGO ICE AGE WAS NOT AN EARLY REMINDER! We're clearly not enough! YOU, ARE NOT, ENOUGH!
  • Merlin:... You really DON'T trust us!
  • Duke: Twi, even if that hits the nail in the head, you can't expect us to change who we are! We live in a series of cartoon universes! It's like asking a fish not to swim. It's freaking nature!
  • Icky: Yeah!! The Shell Lodge Squad and random stupidity and laughs are a package deal! Take it, or leave it!
  • Twilight: THEN MAYBE YOU'RE BETTER OFF NOT- (Gazelle froze her in place with the Uniter Blade quickly)...
  • Icky:... I have the distinct impression we were NOT GOING TO LIKE WHAT YOU ALMOST SAID, YOU ANTI-COMEDITE!
  • Gazelle: I agree!... Twilight... You must come with me!... You almost made the same mistake that got you in this mess in the first place, even AFTER you said you weren't! So you're clearly not thinking straight!
  • Twilight:... (Sighs as she was released and softly sobs)... I'm sorry!... It's just... Maybe the harshness outside Equestria is starting to get to me the same way it did to Tempest.
  • Cornwall: Gee, ya think?!?
  • Devon: (Grabs his mouth) Would you please?! This is a vulnerable moment for her!
  • Twilight: It's clear that I'm only used to the peace of Equestria, and if I end up doing things outside Equestria, exposure to the leftover chaos of the Chaos Wars... Has started making me just like Tempest!
  • Patrick: But you're not an angry meanie with a broken horn working for the bad guys.
  • B.O.B.: Oh, and she needs a cool mohawk too! But she kinda has the purple thing down!
  • Pinkie: Well actually, she's more of a lavender, and-
  • Twilight: SHUT UP!!! (The three were shocked)...UGGGGGGGH!! EVEN AT A SINCERE MOMENT, YOU GUYS JUST-... (She cries again)... I'm sorry! I usually handle your craziness better than that?! I... (Cries)... What is the outside world turning me into?
  • Gazelle:... It's clear more than ever now that we must talk about it! (They teleported away)...
  • Count Razoff:... Yeesh, I didn't know we scored tickets to a drama show...
  • Icky:... What if she's right?... What if we AREN'T taking this as seriously as we thought?
  • Banzai: HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT, BOY?!?
  • Icky: Before everyone excommunicates me for blasphemy, not that cartoonism is a religion now and/or has ever been such, just hear me out! After Storm King's actions back in 2017, we ended up forgetting that she was insecure about higher heroes not being quick to trust lessers, in this case, the Guardians of Harmony who saved Equestria from threats we likely didn't even KNOW about, and us who started around the late 2012s when a SAF Comic introduced Equestria during the producer's rise to half-Bronyhood, and we ended up confirming she may be correct by berating the Council, AND humiliating Chummer! What's... What's wrong with us?... Were we REALLY that unfair to Twilight AND everyone here? (Everyone began to think about that)
  • Thunderclap:... Ohhh, by the Eye of the Storm... What have I done?
  • Discord:... Awwwww, poo! It's just as much my fault. I was being considerate to Twilight's desires of focusing on the Storm King, so I figured a quick defeat of that jewel-lover would keep us on the right track!... OHH, I HATE it when I try to do something swell and end up the fool! (Turns into a Jester)... Maybe Mayhem was right, to an extentsion. Nothing I do ever pleases people.
  • Lord Shen: Hey, you said you were over that James-Woods-sounding-Hades knockoff, so don't go crying to that scumbag now!
  • Discord: I did SAY to an EXTENTSION!! He's still wrong about the MAJORITY of other things!
  • Capper: (Sighs)... Awwww, gees, Chummer... What am I gonna do?
  • ???: Oh, don't mind Chummer, he's always like that! (An elaphocentaur came in)
  • Discord: Whoa! A Deer-centaur!
  • Max: "Now there's something you don't see everyday."
  • Sam: "Things like that are why I quited my summer job at the petting zoo."
  • Elaphocentaur: An elaphocentaur, to be specific. Oh, and... My apologies. I am Sagitar. I am among the warriors for the Guardians lead by Stratus. It's just... I couldn't help overhearing your conversation with Chummer, AND your outburst with Miss Twilight Sparkle. It's just... He's a little... Sensitive, about when people don't trust him since that's what he put up with since he renounced his life as a thief. He couldn't show himself in public without anyone not wanting anything to do with him. Even as an invaluable spy, he's still shunned.
  • Capper: Understatement of the millennia!
  • Sagitar: Look... Stratus won't be back for quite some time. So, if you want, I can introduce you to the warriors here while you wait for him.
  • Icky: Look, as tempting as that is, given how our choices just affected Twilight, we really SHOULD amscray! The poor guy's upset with us already, and Twilight doesn't feel like talking with the Guardians as it is after SOME freakazoid AND walnut-brained pterosaur's stunts! (Discord gave him the middle finger that popped off, became sentient, and raspberries and moons him).... I don't think Stratus and the other Guardians fighting with him out there would be quick to welcome us should they hear on how we interacted with their bosses, AND his daddy. Also, you had clearly noticed we just had a bad argument with a pony who can't trust us with a mission with a guy who almost tore apart her circle of friends, thus we're in even s******r moods than we were already!
  • Sagitar: I see. You're heroes that know they made a mistake and wish to avoid aggravating things, especially not while in less-than-stellar moods. Very well. I won't force you into this. But it's your decision.
  • Trixie: Look, Thunderclap's very sorry about berating the Elders, ESPCIALLY with Twi's outburst hitting a nail deep in his impenetrable head! He just didn't respond well to their final decision. How would YOU feel if it was hard to get even the WISEST of people to even trust you?
  • Sagitar: Well, regardless, it's still a good thing you captured Septimus. I assure you, he WAS as much a threat to us as Storm King, but he was more focused on THIS land instead of all others. He DID need to be punished one way or another, so it's better to have an imperfect capture as opposed to not be captured at all. (The heroes were about to leave, but Capper stayed behind)
  • Capper:... Listen, Sagitar, was it? If you can, can you put up a good word for me to Chums that I didn't plan on those guys being crazy for petty revenge? I may have been upset on that he double-crossed me, but I'm not that pitiful about it! If you can, tell him that it was just the Lodgers and friends being.... Well, themselves, and NOT like the Guardians of Harmony.
  • Sagitar: I can't guarrantee that it'll mend his heart quickly, but I'll offer him the food for thought.
  • Capper: Good. I'll see if the Lodgers can stay. After all... A few of them look like they don't wanna go. Especially the adorable yellow pony. (Fluttershy was petting some bunnies, jackalopes, and wolpertingers and sighed)...
  • Sagitar:... Well, yes, Questra does have some to offer to someone who loves to look at wonder at it's finest. I wish you luck, Cappy. (They left)

Open Spring Field

  • Gazelle: (She and Twilight teleported there)... Twilight!... I am GRAVELY disappointed that you couldn't even TRY to control your fears!
  • Twilight: I'm sorry! That moment of embarrassing us in the eyes of people who would've had us harshly punished only proved my point, and that was ALL I COULD STAND!
  • Gazelle: Well, if they DID want to punish us, they wouldn't've let us leave as quickly as you using that teleport spell!
  • Twilight: (Sighs), I guess they understood that we're too important for Equestria's future to really do so. But what if the Lodgers ended up doing that to less-than forgiving greater goods?
  • Gazelle: Trust me, I can convince anyone out of anything rash and unproductive, and even then, we can still prove naysayers wrong in the end.
  • Twilight: But, what if, the Guardians of Harmony stay mad at us, and... Never want to have anything to do with Equestria?
  • Gazelle: Twilight, amigo, you need to think clearly! One of them, by the name, "Halo" if I read their named chairs correctly, is an Equestrian, and if they even DARE consider such things, then she would likely NOT be happy! The Guardians of Harmony consider Equestria as important as any other land, ESPECIALLY since it has this world's most dominant race.
  • Twilight:... That is true.
  • Gazelle: Precisamente! You NEED to control yourself, and not let your fears destroy you! And it almost won back there! You ALMOST destroyed our trust in you! In fact, I know that you do NOT wanna see what COULD'VE occurred had I not stepped in.
  • Twilight:... Yeah, I don't feel I'll like what COULD'VE occurred!
  • Gazelle: You were clearly going to say that we were better off not protecting Equestria again! THAT, could've held DISASTROUS consequenes! Sure, we can take insults like that, it wasn't our first time with those that doubt our capabilities to the point that they think they don't need us... But the GREATER concern... Is that you were going to imply that you were better off without us. And since you were upset about saying that you can do good without your own friends and 'soulmates',... Then just imagine what saying THAT to US, would've done to you, AND EVERYONE ELSE!
  • Twilight:... I... I'm sorry! How can you-
  • Gazelle: It's understandable. If that insult HAD incriminated us as menaces, or at the least, insubordinate fools, then you would've done far worse. But it didn't. Like you said, perhaps we were lucky that the Council was in a particularly good mood, or understood that we were too important to be dragged to their courts to punish us, or perhaps they knew you were royalty and didn't want to risk an international incident in an already bad time. But even then, insults and unjustly denouncements, help NO ONE, except the desperados! Yet forgetting that we WERE important by doing THAT... Would've been just as destructive! You're SO lucky I was there to stop you from making a BIGGER mistake than ever!
  • Twilight: Are you sure it would've been that bad? You said the Lodgers handled being insulted badly before!
  • Gazelle: Si. But sometimes, even the thickest skins and steadiest of heads, can fall, when hearts are shattered. The way you were going to snap at them... It was like saying you were BANISHING us, FROM EQUESTRIA, FOR BEING WHO THEY WERE: COMICAL MISFITS! (Twilight realized)... So, you see, many of them were likely to take that HORRIBLY, that you'd say we were better off not protecting Equestria ever again, because of being random and unpredictable to where we could do something unexpected and life-threatening. And think about Celestia! Lord Shen and Celestia, are a happy couple! And if you were to say that Equestria was better off without him and the others?... How do you think she'd react to those words?
  • Twilight:... (She sobbed in the painful thought being reminded of the visions from Sombra's fear-inducing door and Pitch's illusion)...
  • Gazelle:... Brings back painful memories, doesn't it? Plus, we have Equestrian members in the Lodge. How would THEY, AND THEIR FAMILIES, feel, if you said THEY were better off not in their own homeworld? That's the same mistake Shineflare did when she tried to litigate Starlight! And we know that it was easily used against her to eventually get her out of office!
  • Twilight: (She was hurt more at that realization)...
  • Gazelle: Not to mention that, again, Celestia and Luna are a part of the High Council. If they told them about the stunt you almost pulled... What's to say it won't affect both you AND the Lodgers? We'd both look terrible to them! You almost let your fears become your very downfall, AND the downfall, of the Lodge- (Twilight couldn't take it anymore and cried hysterically)... Oh querido!
  • Twilight: (She cried hard)... I'M SO, SO SORRY!!! (Cries)... I... I DON'T KNOW HOW I CAN BEAT STORM KING ANYMORE!... HE'S DRIVING ME MAD WITH MY FEARS, AND HE'S HAUNTING ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!!!... You're right!... I almost destroyed EVERYTHING!... What am I gonna do?!?
  • Gazelle:... Oh demonios! I just made your fears worse, didn't I?
  • Twilight: YES! (She cried) YES, YOU DID!!...
  • Gazelle:... (Sighs)... I'll... Leave you alone to think about it, then... (She teleported away)...
  • Twilight: *Sniff*... Why, does this keep happening? What kind of Princess of Friendship am I? (She sung this)

  • Gazelle: (She watched this unnoticed, got concerned, and left)

Guardian Lounge Room

  • Feonix: (A whole array of recognizable and unrecognizable mythical creatures were seen lounging and training)... Well, s***! The Elders had a very awkward run-in with the famous Shell Lodge Squad?
  • Chummer: And they TOTALLY embarrassed me, AND acted like complete insensitive selfish jerks, like it was no big deal! And they call themselves heroes? HOW ARE THEY STILL ALIVE IF THAT'S THEIR NORM?!? THEY WOULD'VE BEEN BEHEADED AT THIS POINT!!
  • Feonix: Well, not every hero has to be absolutely perfect. Sometimes, they're people like the Lodgers or, if a Draconequus, like Discord. I mean, give them credit, in a rather, rushed and sloppy way, they captured Septimus.
  • Chummer: BUT THEY ALSO INSULTED THE ELDERS!! Granted, it was mainly the pterosaur only, but... (Sighs) What has this world come to, Virtue?
  • Feonix (Virtue): Your guess is as good as mine. The world, and the UUniverses in general, are unpredictable that way. Not every hero is going to be as organized or disciplined as the Guardians of Harmony. But give them this: As least they used their overused powers for good. And at least they get the job done... In albeit unconventional ways.
  • Kitsune: Yes, my friend. Not everyone is as pure of heart or noble of mind as your average warrior. Heck, you don't need any of those things to be a hero. It's the deeds that make you a hero.
  • Dracaena: I can agree with Trikto on that one. The UUniverses don't revolve around a single person. Not to me. Nor you. Nor every single guardian here right now. You should know that since Stratus took sorrow on you.
  • Chummer: (Sighs) Don't remind me, Grace! (He sits and rests like a cat)... I just... I just need some time to myself.
  • Female Anthropomorphic Tanuki: (Elsa-like feel and voice, but Japanese accent) Don't let their antics get your hopes down, Chummer! (She sits with Chummer)... It's not like they can cause the end of the world with one simple honest rant, especially since it merely came from one easily-provoked individual that doesn't always speak for them in the grand scheme of things. Also, our Elders were a bit too, traditional to really see their potential buried in their... Lack of proper discipline or grander consideration for their actions. So it's not like the Elders entirely didn't deserve the disrespect. I wouldn't call them an entirely-bad choiced. Just, wildly imperfect. The one called Applejack once learned that a simple and straight-forward honest opinion can hurt you. And she wasn't the one who made the blunt opinion. She learned it the hard way when her way of life was directly insulted, right after she did the same to ponies in fashion.
  • Chummer: But... But hon, it's too clear that the others need to learn that lesson, too. I was hoping they already did, but now I know the truth.
  • Tanuki: Nobody's perfect, Chummer! Not even the Lodgers. Each one of them range in personality. You can't expect all of them to be strong and noble. Why, some of them actually used to be villains before the Lodgers gave them a chance to be better than their origins, like how Stratus did for you. And even then, it's obvious they still have imperfections to fix. Like the saying goes: Canterlot wasn't built in a day. You just need to bring hope that they can be the heroes you expected them to be. Not entirely, but still. After all, the Storm King wasn't the biggest challenge for the Mane Six when he attacked, but he DID set the path for the Princess of Friendship herself to learn another lesson.
  • Chummer:... Really?
  • Tanuki: Hai! Twilight was having a friendship crisis of her own when trying to fight him off. After all she had to put up with when trying to stop Storm King, she couldn't put up with Capper's tricks, and the constant unwise mistakes her friends were making. She couldn't trust them with a mission as serious as this thanks to said mistakes, and... Made the mistake of taking advantage of it by having them distract the ruler of Seaquestria while tried to steal their magical Pearl to try and offer a chance of Equestria's survival, and when the mistrust was all too visible to her friends afterward... In her frustration after having had enough of their antics, almost murdered her friendship with them.
  • Chummer:... Seriously?
  • Tanuki: Seriously. Twilight was too desperate to protect her home, she forgot what made friendship make it all worthwhile, AND who got her this far from the beginning. She was so aggravated at her friends for being 'careless' and 'not taking the mission seriously by trusting con artists and making Rainbooms in the sky', that she said the wrong words. Believe me when I say, when she yelled that she would've been better off without her friends, she realized right away that she was wrong. She was not acting right, and forgetting her place in life, which is why it hurt when her friends were saddened by her outburst. But eventually, she healed the wounds she tore into herself, and everypony lived happily ever after. Now, it's clear that we and the Lodgers need to do the same.
  • Chummer:... You know... You really are the smartest and most helpful person I ever met, Senshi. That's why I fell in love with you! (The two hugged)... I suppose I can offer forgiveness. But... It's gonna take me a while to forgive them.
  • Tanuki (Senshi): Well, you can start... By letting it go! (She sings this, with changed lyrics, as the two went out to the elegant landscapes of Questra, exploring it and soaring across water, treacherous landscapes, and so on with her magic as they dance romantically)

  • Chummer:.. Well, aside from that song feeling like it's been already used before in some shape or form... You sing like an angel, Senshi!
  • Senshi: Thank you! (The two kissed)
  • Sagitar: (He arrives) Chummer? Can we talk?
  • Chummer: If it's about the Lodgers, don't bother!
  • Sagitar:... Senshi? Wow, you are a good girlfriend.
  • Senshi: All in a day's work. After all, it is my instinct as a Guardian to help the less-fortunate. After all, it's what my mother would've wanted out of me after my father's... Unfortunate actions upon me.
  • Sagitar: Well, it was only half of what I wanted to say. The Lodgers and the others are going to leave in feeling that they embarrised themselves to badly. Also... It's clear that the Princess of Friendship needs encouragement, BADLY! She almost suggested that the Lodgers were better off no longer protecting Equestria despite how much of an impact it had on them had the Uniter Princess not stopped her, because of their antics of insulting the Elders and embarrassing Chummer.
  • Virtue:... Well, give them credit, at least they know and can learn when to not being aggravators and leave when not appreciated.
  • Selkie: Heck, given what you said about the unfortunate and hostile crisis Twilight's having, I can't help but feel she's DEFINITELY going to need all the encouragement she can get.
  • Winged Wolf: I agree. Heck, I don't think she trusts even HERSELF with the mission of stopping the Storm King as much as she doesn't trust the Lodgers with it. I feel they'll need encouragement, and more than just a lesson of common courtesy.
  • Sak: Well, I feel we should help them. After all, they look like they need guidance from this world's best fighters.
  • Yali: I couldn't agree more.
  • Winged Lion: Me neither. As one with an instinct of wisdom, we must give the unenlightened their first step. However, we must remember that Stratus is still out with Lascaux, Blaze, Flamsteed, and Mounty. We cannot do this without his consent. Nor that of his dad in the elder council. You know how Stratu's old man feels about his son not seeing the action head on.
  • Sagitar: Oh indeed! I could barely count the many threats we could've long conquered in places like Equestria if we weren't restricted to having to make sure Stratus sees it for himself. Speaking of which.... I wonder how he and the others are doing?

(Later...)

  • Rainbow Dash: WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO?!?
  • Stratus: I mean no!
  • Tigress:... You're joking, right? We're offering to keep this tyrant off your back, and you just say no, just like that?
  • Stratus: You must understand, The Storm King has been adapting to our strategies since the beginning. As we fought him, we didn't discover until it was too late that he was learning our moves, and has thus gotten so used to us, he can predict what each one of us can do. When he almost destroyed us back in mid 2016, and almost murdered my father, we had no choice but to agree to his one term of surrender: Never try and get in his way again. And so, we live in exile.
  • SpongeBob:... (He and Patrick laughed)... You're serious?
  • Stratus: I never kid around, Sponge! Besides, not only was his brother Thunder King made involved with it, another threat of ours was paid a hundred million bits to ensure we never leave, or, well, we suffer his wrath. I swear, that Septimus Croft creep will do ANYTHING for money- (The Lodgers continued laughing)
  • Discord: Dude? We already DEALT with Septimus! (He showed him a baby Septimus)
  • Stratus:... HOLY CROW!!! YOU ACTUALLY TURNED HIM INTO A BABY?!?
  • Cirrus: He did it quickly, ate his Opal, and... Ended up unleashing the powerful diarrhea side-effect on one of the teams' enemies. However, it doesn't change the facts. Thunder King did well even WITHOUT Septimus, so, he's likely not gonna complain about Septimus' current predicament. (The heroes laughed more) STOP IT! THIS IS SERIOUS!
  • Boss Wolf: Dude, it's NEVER serious to us when it comes to villains. This guy's position is ALL to familiar with us. We fought guys who had eyes and ears in alot of places, AND crystal balls, AND were in heavily-fortified positions. And we beaten them all the same.
  • Duke: CAN YOU BELIEVE THESE GUYS?!? THEY TURNED COWARD BECAUSE OF SOME JOKE WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT THE WAYS TO GET AROUND IT?!?
  • Qilin: Why are you acting so-
  • Duke: Because we're the LODGERS! WE'VE BEEN AT THIS FOR SO LONG, WE CAN ADAPT AROUND GUYS LIKE THIS DUNDER KING! (They laughed)
  • Mira: SIIIILEEEEEEEENNCE!!!! (Everyone stopped laughing)... This is NOT a joke, AND IT IS NOT A LAUGHING MATTER, you simpletons! Storm King is too smart, good, and tough for us now! He's used to our strategies and maneuvers. We didn't know until it was too late that he was studying us every time we fought.
  • Almiraj: AND WE FOUGHT HIM EVERY WEEK!!! We still feel stupid that he made a plan every week just to study us! It explained all too well why it felt like he was letting us win, even if it wasn't on purpose.
  • Bicorn: So, yes, we must heed to their orders, or Storm King's brother will have us destroyed. And trust me, they DO remember where they left off since 2016, and WILL finish where they started.
  • SpongeBob: THEN WORK AROUND IT!!
  • Historia: Uh, how stupid are you? The Thunder King, WATCHES US!!! What do you think magic is?
  • Cirrus: Historia, what did we say about speaking unprofessionally?
  • Historia:... To not to.
  • Cirrus: Yes. And for ignoring me, you are suspended for the next day. (Historia brooded and buzzed away)... But yes, she does have a point. His crystal ball keeps us from doing anything about it. He's practically watching us right now. Thus, we had to do missions not involving Storm King, or this place is destroyed.
  • Rainbow Dash: COME ON! YOU ALL ARE JUST GOING TO LET THAT JACKASS TELL YOU WHAT TO DO?!? YOU'VE GOT THE MAGIC OF A THOUSAND SUNS, AND YOU DON'T JUST USE IT TO BLAST THAT THUNDER KING AWAY?!?
  • Arion: Lower your tone, Ms. Dash! He's absorbed half of that power to ensure we don't go far, and thus he can use it against us.
  • Rainbow Dash: You guys have a choice to make! You can't just let these threats get to you! By your logic, you're HALF a match for Thunder King! So, you can let some cloven-hoof Thunder King tell you how to live your lives, or, you can be awesome again!
  • Celaeno: Exactly. We thought WE were hopeless against Storm King, and then Rainbow Dash here told us that there was nothing stopping us from leaving his servitude, and go back to being sky pirates again! So, it's up to you to take the risk! Let's tell you about it!
  • Twilight: (Sighs) Again?
  • Starlight: Twilight, we just got you back on your hooves, don't complain about a song number now! (She and Celaeno sung this as the Warriors joined in, including Stratus to Cirrus' disapproval)

  • Cirrus: ENOUGH OF YOUR SONG!! (The singing stopped)... Stratus, you stay out of this!
  • Stratus: (Sighs) Yes, father!
  • Cirrus: I'm sorry, but.... This is out of our hands now! We are NOT taking this risk!
  • Po: Okay, you're SOOOO not going Croc and Ox on us! You're seriously protecting this world by not protecting it? If we all fight together- (A magic wave was heard)
  • Mira: Then Thunder King will kill EVERYONE IN QUESTRA!
  • Po:... Well, a sneak attack, then. We get to Thunder and then-
  • Almiraj: And then we'll be struck by lightning, by that unstoppable bastard!
  • Po: Nothing's unstoppable except for me from stopping you from- Yadda, yadda, yadda!
  • Rainbow Dash: JUST BE AWESOME AGAIN, IS THAT SO HARD?!? (They ended up tussling for a while comically)
  • Celaeno:... Guys, you can't hide like this forever!
  • Cirrus: We'd like to see you get us OUT! (They continued for a while as Rainbow Dash ended up getting out from a daze)
  • Rainbow Dash:... You guys see that? THAT'S an example of being awesome!
  • Po: Took the words outta my mouth!
  • Rainbow Dash: Well, duh!
  • Po: COME ON, Whatever happened to being the greatest heroes in this world?
  • Halo: The only hero here is a dead one! (They tussled once more until Mira stopped it all with a stronger magic shockwave)
  • Mira: ENOUGH! YOU ALL ARE DISMISSED IMMEDIATELY! We are NOT going anywhere! The Guardians of Harmony are dead!... (Stratus was shocked by this)...
  • Po:... Ya-Yo-ou...
  • Rainbow Dash:... The Guardians are de-ea... MUST, FIGHT, CHILD-FRIENDLY INSTINCT... DEEEEAAA...
  • Po:... FINE! YOU GO AHEAD AND BASK IN THE SUNLIGHT OF SHAME, WITH A CHANCE OF RAINY WEATHER OF SORROW!
  • Earl: Followed by windy conditions of lameness!
  • Halo: And a hailstorm of despair.
  • Bicorn: Seriously, Halo?
  • Halo: Oh, come on, any of you would've said it!
  • Icky: AHHHHH, YOU DORKS ARE A BUNCH OF CHICKENS!!
  • Axex: HMMPH! RACIST!
  • Icky: Oh, hush! I would've liked it better if it was just that you got too caught up fighting orc hordes, but noOOOOOOOOOOoooo, it's because you're afraid of a bunch of yeti-esque goatmen! That's... That's just sad!
  • Lord Shen:... Our apologies for ever darkening your hallways of cowardice then, gentlemen!
  • Po: We'll deal with this Thunder King for you! And prove once and for all to those in Questra who are hungry for justice and honor, THAT THE GUARDIANS STILL LIVE! Good day to you, sirs and/or madams! (The Lodgers and other heroes stormed out as Stratus realized that he made a mistake)
  • Stratus:... Lodgers, wait! (The group quickly stopped and Cirrus was surprised)... Rude as your words were... You made a good point! What good is being a hero if a bunch of apey-satyrs can push us around? Well I say, damn the Thunder King, because I aim to do what is right, AND STRIKE HIM DOWN WHERE HE STANDS, PUN INTENDED! (The other warrior members backed up Stratus as the heroes congratulated them)
  • Cirrus: SON, WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS?!? The Thunder King was VERY specific about-
  • Stratus: He was specific about NOTHING! He's turning us into cowards! That's why you leave me no choice! I'm calling for the Liability Shutdown Protocol! (The Elders gasped)
  • Discord:... The, a-what now?
  • Strife-Nimbus: The Liability Shutdown Protocol is a system designed to temporarily shut down the Elder Council's power when they are proven unreliable! It puts the Guardians under martial law by the best warrior in the group, which, in coincidence, is Stratus.
  • Cirrus:... HOW DARE YOU?!? DON'T, YOU, DARE USE THAT PROTOCOL ON US!! WE ARE ONLY LOOKING OUT FOR OUR GROUP'S LONGEVITY, AND THAT OF QUESTRA'S!!
  • Stratus: What good is longevity if it means wickedness goes unanswered? This is NOT the Guardian way! We have to stand up for ourselves! I don't CARE what Thunder King does, we're NOT letting him rob us of who we are! If you are wise, then you should do the same!
  • Cirrus:... YOU'RE GROUNDED!!
  • Stratus: I'm not a chick anymore, father! You can stay here and be a coward all you want, because the rest of us are doing something right! But it's still all up to you! (The group leaves with the Lodgers as Discord was walking backwards and giving them two literal birds on where his middle fingers were, leaving Cirrus was still awestruck)
  • Triskelion:... Wow, they made us eat our words, eh, Ephemeris?
  • Cyclops (Ephemeris):... Okay, who's bright idea was it, to invent a protocol designed to disable the Elder Council?!? I WANNA KNOW THE BIRDBRAIN WHO THOUGHT IT WAS BRILLIANT TO- (Everyone pointed at Cirrus)... Oh, right.
  • Cirrus:... Son...
  • Mira: "..... He was right. We were being cowerds. We deserve no respect from anyone."
  • Qilin:... So, who wants pizza? My treat.
  • Aries: Frick, I'm down, what's for the toppings?

(Thunder's Defeat)

  • Thunder: (He was looking through a crystal ball seeing a lot of the battlefield as the heroes ended up distracting him through his limited view through the Crystal Ball, until the Guardians, SpongeBob, Twilight, both with Keyblades, and Gazelle, came in) WHAT?!?
  • Twilight:... It worked like a charm!
  • Thunder: (He noticed the Keyblades)... Those... Those blades... They're the same as- (In his mind, he saw a pony of ancient past wielding one such)... No, NO, NO, NO!!! (He creates a powerful energy ball and throws it at them)... YOU KEYBLADE WIELDERS WILL NOT DO ME IN THIS TIME!! (The ball stopped)... WHAT?!? (This happened)
TFS Clip Frieza looks like you Dropped the Ball!

TFS Clip Frieza looks like you Dropped the Ball!

  • Thunder:... No, no, no nononononononono! I DO NOT WANNA BE A KEYBLADE-KABAB!! RETREAT?! (They retreated)
  • Icky: "..... HA?! HE RAN LIKE A PUSSY?! I mean seriously, your elders were AFRAID of this wimp?!"
  • Stratus: "Hey to be fair, he has a sevre phobia of keyblades."
  • Thunderclap: Still cowardly of him though!
  • Lord Shen: Don't we all have an innate fear of death and can get a phobia on something that really scares us something fierce? And feeling fear and fearing the end is simply NOT weakness if balanced! It can be a tactical retreat. I kinda find it sick to have to remind us that!
  • Stratus: "Agreed.... That being said though....."
  • Senshi:... You... YOU DID IT!!
  • Paige: I can't believe it! WE'RE FINALLY FREE!!!
  • Nightshade: We can finally be heroes again!
  • Thunderclap: "We showed that disgrace to storms everywhere one-four!"
  • Mushu: "And we proved those lousy excuses for elders wrong and that the Thunder King was all bark and no bite!"
  • Stratus: "But are we sure the Thunder King won't try to come back for vengence? Phobia aside, make no mistake, he was more of a threat then we credited him for."
  • Icky: Doubt Storm King will see it that way. He's obviously the kind of dude to not take that kind of s*** lightly.
  • Status: He never was... I hope my father realizes that the Thunder King really was someone not worth fearing in the end.
  • Capper: Ahhh, I'm sure those old geezers will realized that Thundy was a joke eventually! Now come on gang, we got a major mission to do!
  • Stratus: Unfortunate we have to do this without the Elders... But we can do well without them! (They sung this song as they got out a small elegant vibrant zeppelin)

My Little Pony The Movie Off To See The World

  • Stratus:... So... Where do we start?
  • Twilight:... We return to your hometown... Mount Aris! There's... Something we need to do... And I have some unfinished business! I have a LOT to get out of my chest after... What I did earlier.
  • Stratus: Say no more! You can explain the details on the way! (The Elders watched out the window as they left)...
  • Mira: ".... I..... I don't believe it.... They were right. The Thunder King truely was nothing...."
  • Halo: "..... WELL NOW WE ALL FEEL REALLY STUPID FOR NOT HELPING THEM?!"
  • Historia: "ALL, those, years, of ignoring calls for help?! FOR NOTHING?! They, they made it look SO DAMN EASY?!"
  • Ephemeris: "And, they did it, without our kind of displeane or training.... Nor even an extremely well-contrusted plan beyond the predictable bait and switch! They just.... Went for it!"
  • Triskelion: "... Hate to admit it, but, weird as they still are, they were TRUE heroes today!"
  • Axex: "Ugh.... Beginners luck. (Everyone scornfully looks at the Axex)...... Okay okay! (Sighs defeated)..... I'll admit that perhaps we may've.... Overestimated the Thunder King."
  • Cirrus:... (Sighs in finally realising the elders' mistake in bowing to the Storm Clan's threat.)... Good luck out there... Son!

Returning to Seaquestria

Later...

  • Stratus: (As the Guardians' ship approached Mount Aris as they teleported into the elegant land setting where they met the singing Skystar, only it is rebuilt since the movie but desolated with the Storm King's storms and teaming with the hippogriffs who hid in Seaquestria and were barricading themselves indoors, slightly waving to the heroes)... So... Novo and Skystar, and my brother Straton, have been hiding underwater with the seaponies since Storm King destroyed Hippogrifia?
  • Pinkie: Yep! And... We showed them a fun time, but... Well...
  • Senshi: It didn't go well?
  • Twilight: I tried to steal their magic pearl to try and save Equestria as I couldn't trust my friends since they trusted a con artist and gave away our position with a Sonic Rainboom. Then... (Sighs)... Given my scene back in Questra, I still don't wanna remind myself of that! It STILL makes me feel like a bad friend!
  • Lord Shen: Twilight, just PLEASE let it go already! We cleared up THAT scene, let's not make another.
  • Grace: Everyone, let's worry about this personal problem later! Let's just find the entrance to Seaquestria's capital castle! I'll see if we can find a tourist. But can't see how easy that'll be given the apparent storm warning-
  • Pinkie: Oh, we already know where it is!
  • Grace:... Really?
  • Pinkie: Of course, silly! How do you think we got there? It's beautiful! It's a cascading waterfall-fed swimming hole with a giant flower in it!
  • Fluttershy: I'd call it more of a cave pond than a swimming hole.
  • Pinkie Tomato tomoto!
  • Stratus:... Well... If you're certain that Storm King's after Seaquestria, as evident from this storm... Then we'll need some assistance. I must head to Hippogriffinstone! I feel we may wanna do some help evacuating some residents since they may be in one HELL of an attack. You guys find Novo and Skystar, and I'll get help from my kind.
  • Shrek: You do that! We'll take this up to your brother, Straton was it?
  • Stratus: Yes! I'll be back soon! (He flies away fighting off the storm)
  • Twilight:... At least he's resourceful, AND persistent. Now let's find the pool and warn the seaponies.
  • Puss: Let's hope they'll cope with you arriving, what with you being banished and all!
  • Twilight:... Then may Celestia help us all... Literally, I hope her summit with the hippogriffs after the Storm King's previous defeat went well. (They arrived in the area where they found Skystar which was refashioned into a massive fountain that was currently inactive, and followed the tight but renovated caves, getting out of the storm in the process, into the same water hole they got sucked into, left relatively intact save much water-and-plant-based decoration)...
  • Pinkie: OOOOOOOH!! The hippogriffs made it much MORE stunning! It's now the size of a jumbo pool now!
  • Capper:... It's... Beautiful!
  • Sandy: DEFINITELY looks, and FEELS, like a good place to swim!
  • Pinkie: DEFINITELY! CANNONBAAAALL!! (She jumped in as Alex protected himself from the splash with an Alex umbrella)
  • Gilda:... Oy! Sometimes she can still annoy me!
  • Gazelle: Well... I guess if we're entering through here, why not make the best of it? CORKSCREW!! (She leapt up and began to do a spin-dive into the water)... (Pang whistled)...
  • Duke:... Hey, that water does look nice. So, with that in mind... GERONIMO!! (He bounces up and swan-dives into the water)
  • Brigette: Check THIS out! I learned THIS from a giraffe high-diving video!... Don't ask! (She charged to the diving board built near the pool for activity by the hippogriffs, jumped and did something like this in the video)
High Diving Giraffes

High Diving Giraffes

1:45

  • Benny: (Awestruck)... WOOOOOOOOOOOW, WHAT A WOMAN!!
  • Icky:... DIVE PARTY!!
  • Twilight: Oh, for the love of- (Everyone did so as they got the aquatic breathing spells ready as they went through the caves, accidentally splashing an unamused Twilight, and Fluttershy slowly dipped her hoof in the water as she smiled, missing the feeling)
  • Fluttershy:... At least... I wasn't gonna be stuck on land and miss my merpony form forever. Let's go, Twilight!
  • Twilight: Well, let's hope that Novo's in a better mood since she was asked to give us the forms back. Come on! (They went in and donned their seapony forms)... Gotta admit, Novo was... Somewhat nice enough to have us manipulate our own seapony forms however we like.
  • Trixie: Awwww, Trixie wants a seapony form! It makes the merpony form... Outdated!
  • Gilda: Well, I don't know what I'll be like as a sea griffin, but I hope it's better than... Whatever the f*** I am currently.
  • Starlight:... And it was nice of Celestia to convince Novo to give ME a seapony form as well!
  • Fluttershy: It... Really? I can... Manipulate the form?... (She tries something, and after accidentally shifting to legs again and puffed her cheeks and released a flurry of bubbles muffling in reaction, she regained control chuckling in embarrassment and ends up changing to her traditional merpony form)... (She gasps)... I CAN... I CAN HAVE THIS FORM AGAIN?!? (She squeed, and then squealed in joy hugging her tail)
  • Twilight: Fluttershy, if you hadn't noticed, we've got work to do! Let's hope that, again, Novo's forgiving enough for us to be here! (They swam off with the others as they saw that Seaquestria has changed since 2017, as the seaponies have made rearrangements, making another city on the bottom and lining the sides similar to the one above on the ceiling, and decorating the place with coral reefs, and making it roughly beautiful to people like Fluttershy, who smiled wildly with glittering eyes as seaponies greeted them)
  • Applejack:... The place is different than I remember it!
  • Pinkie:... I guess we DID make a BIG difference, with one small thing.... Not just for them... But for Skystar. The seaponies seem to forgive us. (Some of the seaponies had bad glares)... Most of the time.
  • Twilight: (Sighs) This is gonna suck!
  • Fluttershy: (She went and played pattycake with small seapony fillies in rejoice as they hugged)
  • Discord: (A familiar song began playing as Discord turned into a crab as he started to sing this song and started to get everyone, even water life and the seaponies everywhere to start singing with him, to Twilight's clear annoyed detriment) Well, everypony, I hope it was nice to come back here! Life down here, seems quite elegant than anything else on land can offer!
  • Twilight: Discord, now's not the time for a- (He already started singing as Fluttershy enjoyed herself to the sea for the first time in years)... Song...
Under The Sea - The Little Mermaid Lyrics

Under The Sea - The Little Mermaid Lyrics

  • Fluttershy:... I LOVE THE SEA! (She hugged all the young seapony fillies giggling in joy)
  • Twilight:... You done?
  • Discord: Oh, come now, Twi-Twi, I'm just having my fun with this! I mean, COME ON, you should've seen it coming.
  • Twilight: Well, time is of the essence, if you hadn't noticed! I may not wanna rush this like last time or judge you for your antics again, but I just... Wanna get meeting Novo again over with, and I don't wanna get my hopes up through this.
  • Fluttershy:... I thought it was nice.
  • Merlin: We found the castle, anyway! Come on! (They went there, going in through the bottom entry way)

Seaquestria Castle, Novo's Throne Room

  • Icky:... (Takes a deep breath) I could hardly believe it even back in 2017, but, shoot my beak and call me Daffy, it finally happened! The producers of the show FINALLY decided to add a non-comic/book sea society to their show continuity.
  • Thunderclap:... I still must ask, didn't the series priorly state that merponies were the only rulers of the sea? Because where were THESE guys and those other seaponies if the contradiction was true?
  • ???: Actually, those are a related chain to us. (Novo and Skystar came in, as Twilight backed away as Novo saw this and preferred to save it for later)
  • Queen Novo: Though some of us were originally hippogriffs, we know that these seaponies were both created by the same Alicorn Goddess of the Sea herself, Princess Maricolous. We're just more capable of harnessing Alicorn sea magic that we're more bonded to the sea than others. Also, there's other relatives like the literal sea horses as well as them mermares.
  • Skystar: Heck, the family of the last one to rule this place knew the residents of Equantica long before Discord's curse.
  • Fluttershy: Really? Wait... You know them? (Twilight was excited to learn this knowledge until Novo looked at her, causing her to flinch)
  • Queen Novo: We, or at least Seaquestria, were allied with them's more like it. All the other sea communities like Coltlantis and Aquastria share a connection. Equantica was just one of the unlucky missing allies, and one of which had a crazy influence from us. We're currently helping 'em rebuild what was lost since they were cast out of the Equestrian sea. Maricolous bless their souls!
  • Fluttershy: And how that's been going?
  • Skystar: You've no doubt seen what we did with the place. We made it as beautiful as Princess Maricolous would want with it, and they I turn helped us by doing the same, as we both renovated our homes with... (Giggles)... One small thing.
  • Novo: (As Twilight was unamused until she continued hesitating)... Alright, your highness, no need for that! Just come on out! I ain't gonna blame you for doing what'cha did... Not anymore! Just... Just feel free to ask any questions.
  • Twilight:... Well... Can you tell me a bit about this Alicorn God?
  • Queen Novo: Well, funny thing, she's an ancestor to Queen Oceanious since she had a mortal relationship in her late days. But now her soul's under our protection since she was killed during those wicked Chaos Wars. She still lives in the Pearl that fuels the pearls I cast spells with like that Pearl of Transformation you tried to steal that allows me to utilize sea magic for any purpose like shiftin' our hippogriff allies to seaponies and give 'em the ability to adapt to it, allowing me to turn air-breathing creatures into sea creatures.
  • Spike: And you DO know that we dragons are naturally amphibious since we have sea relatives, right?
  • Skystar: Yes, but babies start out with a limited lung capacity, hence why you needed a bubble helmet.
  • Spike: And why was I turned into a fish when I visited Equantica?
  • Queen Novo:... Cuz' Hasbro deems you comic relief.
  • Spike: (Sternly) Any LESS insulting and even LESSER meta reasons?
  • Skystar: Well, again, whoever gave it to you must've figured it took less energy to turn you into a fish than a sea dragon.
  • Icky: Was the logic the same when you did that to him?
  • Queen Novo: In a way, yeah! Turnin' land folk into sea folk is complicated mumbo-jumbo magic, even with an item as great as the Pearl of Transformation. Land dragon to sea dragon conversion is... Somewhat a magically-expensive process, even to baby dragons.
  • Rainbow Dash: Man, this complicated magic mumbo-jumbo is hurting my head. Magic is never straightforward anywhere I go!
  • Skystar: Trust us, even IF we live in symbiosis with Alicorn sea magic, we hardly understand magic. Then again, that's for the best. It'd be boring if we used magic to solve all our problems.
  • Fluttershy:... How is your relationship with Marenia since they returned?
  • Skystar: Well, I was told she was living in Destiny Islands with her husband, and their child I consider a very good friend. We have a portal hidden within Destiny Reef to allow us access between worlds. Sentient underwater life mainly come from Destiny Islands, whereas that which is found here normally isn't.
  • Fluttershy: I know! (Fish approached her) They are SO adorable. (She interacts with the fish as they swam around her and she giggles) I always LOVED animals, and since I saved Equantica, I couldn't have been any happier to explore life in the sea! These little cuties are more fascinating than the ones I saw before. These little fishies are so nice to interact with. They sometimes tickle and can be a little curious, ESPECIALLY those nibbly cleaner fish that are very nice to clean even something they've never seen before. (A cleaner fish was seen nibbling one of her back fins as she giggled)
  • Novo: Celestia told me ya had more of a connection to the sea than your friends, and that you were involved with the rescue of Equantica, so... If I HADN'T given you back your seapony forms, then Marenia would've asked for it, and she is DAMN assertive.
  • Fluttershy: Yeah she is! (She hugs her) I just wanna say THANK YOU for reuniting me with them!
  • Novo: (She hugged her back) Anything for Equantica's princess.
  • Twilight:... Well... Last question... Do... Do you forgive me in full for... My stunt?
  • Queen Novo: Well, your Princess Celestia convinced me that what happened in that little... Mishap... Would've been avoided if I hadn't refused help so damn easily. That incident was partially... My fault. I allowed my fear of Storm King's retaliation onto my people blind me that the right thing was more important than self-preservation. Welp, this time, I'm done being scared of that immature brute. This time, we're gonna be a real aid to Equestria... And, not through my daughter risking another groundin'. (Skystar nervously laughed) So... I hope yall' can forgive me for saying what I did.... And... In case you heroes get the wrong idea, I had no intention of drowning 'em when I changed 'em back. I'm not THAT screwed up. That's why I had temporary bubble helmets to allow 'em to return before they wear off.
  • Icky:... Well, at least you made up for what was unseen.
  • Skystar: And trust me, given the magic we inherited from our pony ancestors, I had ways to know when visitors could be trusted or not. It's why I waited until after you drowned to save you.

Flashback...

  • (Skystar): (She was seen singing at the same place the ponies found you)... Not too long before you found me, I was so bored with my isolated life, I wanted to make a difference, somehow. Then YOU came. (She lead them to the cave pool)... You see, I have certain empathic abilities. By looking into one's eyes, I can see their thoughts and feelings, even those of what they were through in the past. It's MORE visible when one is in genuine danger.
  • (Fluttershy):... Is that why you waited?
  • (Skystar): Yes. I had to play it carefully. (The ponies were seen ejected into the underwater cavern as Skystar watched)... If you already had a solution to being underwater with no air support, then I'd have to play it carefully and I'd have to do it with help. But if you didn't... Then I had to think quickly and look into your eyes. Thus, when the latter turned out right, I reacted quickly! (She used her abilities to look into the drowning ponies' eyes, and saw their past experiences and dangers)... Thus, I realized that you COULDN'T save yourselves. You were not only scared you would drown, but you were scared you'd never see everyone you ever loved because of it.
  • (Applejack): I'm sure others would feel the same, really!
  • (Skystar): Yes, but I can sense deeper meanings to them as well. I learned through the torment and pain you went through before arriving that you were threatened by the same threat that chased us underwater, all by seeing the raw pain and fear given off by you. It was the same pain we felt when Storm King had us at his mercy. Thus, I realized that, given our isolated lifestyle, it was all on me to help you as one victim of the Storm King to another. So... I gave you the help you needed. (She gave them their air helmets)
  • Skystar: (She showed herself) I'M SO GLAD I SAVED YOU GUYS!

Present

  • Skystar: So, by bringing you here, I believed Mom would see the same pain as if she was looking in a mirror... But, it's clear I had to do it differently.
  • Pinkie:... I gotta give you credit, at least you knew what you were doing.
  • Twilight: But didn't you tell your mother why you did it after we left?
  • Novo: Oh, she did eventually. But at first, she didn't need to. My word didn't stand for quite long. Twilight... DID gimme a HELL of a reality check.

Flashback

  • (Novo): (Twilight was seen caught in the jellyfish with the buzzing alarm trying to steal the Pearl as Novo retrieved it) Until that moment... I never realized I wasn't following Maricolous' free-spirited ways and my deceased mentor's promise to protect her people responsibly... Until it was all too late.
  • Novo: You don't deserve to be one of us! (She transformed them back into ponies, and then gave them bubble helmets again to breath)... I suggest you get back to the surface while you still can before those bubbles expire!
  • Pinkie: TWILIGHT, HOW COULD YOU?!?
  • Twilight: GIRLS!... Let's just save our breath and get out of here! We don't need these... COWARDS anyway! (Her words shocked Novo, Skystar, and the seaponies as they left)...
  • (Novo): (As Novo saw the seaponies who had a good time with them beforehand looked at her with mistrust, feeling like she was acting like an unreasonable coward)... Those words... Did they sting like a jellyfish! All my subjects didn't look at me well after all those ponies gave 'em... They didn't feel like they could look up to me again... Looking at their faces... It wasn't very fulfilling in the slightest. (Novo, worried, left to avoid their faces)...
  • Skystar:... (She looked as the ponies left and followed her mother)...
  • (Novo): I was upset at myself for acting so irrationally. (Novo was seen sobbing to herself)... I realized that, after how much my subjects had been changed by their actions... I was not being as responsible as I thought.
  • Novo: (She looked at a picture of her and another seapony)... I'm... I'm so sorry, Abysswish!... I... I failed you!... (She sobs as Skystar watched this, and decided to go follow the ponies)...
  • (Novo):... I didn't notice Skystar was watchin' and went back to try and make up to the ponies. As for me... I was thinking 'bout making up for my harsh actions anyhow. So... I went to the surface.... But... By the time I found 'em-

Present

  • Rainbow Dash: Uhh, excuse me, your highness? (She swam to her)... I think, it's best we not mention that part!... Just know, I'm sorry for... Insulting you after Twilight snapped at us. Just... Skip it, please!
  • Novo:... (Sighs) Welp, if you insist, then I guess the pearl stays in the oyster! (Openly)... Well... Rainbow Dash apparently insists that the rest is... Best left unmentioned. Bottom line...

Flashback

  • (Novo): By the time Celestia's hippogriff summit with our homeland of Hippogriffinstone was issued... She requested a meeting.
  • Sir Ripple: (He came in with Straton Skyranger, one of the hippogriff-seapony guards) Your highness?... (She noticed Princess Swellsea, and was clearly lovestruck as Skystar giggled knowing this)... The ruler of Equestria, Princess Celestia, is requesting a meeting.
  • Novo:... (Twilight: "We don't need these... COWARDS, anyway!")... (Sighs)... I'll be right there soon!
  • Sir Ripple: Look, if you're still on about what the Sparkle pony said, you were only doing what you thought was best for us and-
  • Novo: I know, Ripple, but... But it was still my choice, and it was the wrong and unreasonable choice! What made it wrong was that I didn't just refuse to help, but I didn't take the time to talk about why they did it. Half of us have yer' way of thinking, while the OTHER half still don't appreciate me for acting like a coward after all the fun they had with 'em!... So, I MUST wash away all this pain, because it's now or never! Now, do your job!
  • Sir Ripple: Yes, your highness! (He swam away)....
  • Novo:... (Sighs) I hope Twilight didn't paint me in a negative light. Last thing I need's another scorning in another ruler's meetin'.
  • (Novo): So I met Celestia in the same area where Skystar said she watched Twilight arguing with her friends. (She was seen changing to her hippogriff form as Celestia and Luna were waiting)... (Sighs)... Greetings... Your highness!
  • Celestia:... I take it you know why I'm here?
  • Novo: Yeah... I HAVE to let this pain go sooner or later!... We BOTH made huge mistakes! Twilight did what she felt was best for yall'... And I didn't exactly act rationally in reaction... Cuz' I was doing the same!
  • Luna: Well, we've ALL done things we're not proud of... Trust me... We were BOTH threatened by the Storm King's actions, and you were BOTH scared for your livelihoods being destroyed.
  • Celestia: Indeed. Twilight... Was NOT in an easy position. She explained everything that went on since we were petrified. I'm like a mother to her, and my niece is married to her brother... To see us being turned to coal... Was not easy for her.
  • Novo:... I'm aware. Skystar said they previously... Trusted a con artist and... Made a 'Rainboom' in the sky... And 'expected everything to work out'.
  • Celestia:... Well, they were stranded in the desert, and relied on this 'con artist' for guidance, and ended up being sold out to a mob boss, and were chased out and went to a sky pirate airship that was under forced servitude to Storm King... Then... Rainbow Dash inspired them to not let him define them... And ended up giving away their position, by making this Sonic Rainboom, a legendary move developed by Pegasus in the past, and were chased to Mount Aris.
  • Novo:... Is THAT when they met my daughter?
  • Celestia: Twilight says she led them to your pool entrance, pulled them in through a whirlpool, and gave them bubble helmets when... When they looked like they couldn't do it by themselves. You need to know, that... The fight with Storm King's pony henchwoman destroyed their Rainbow Power... Along with the power that allowed them to breath and underwater since a member of their group, rescued Equantica.
  • Novo:... Wait... As in that underwater merpony city that disappeared ages ago and came back 5 or somethin' years ago? THEY did all that?
  • Luna: Yes, but it was mainly thanks to ONE of them. One of the Mane 6, Fluttershy, wanted desperately to explore the sea, and was given a merpony form to do so, in exchange for rescuing them. They were in need of DESPERATE salvation, as they had two threats they needed stopped so they can return home. Fluttershy was the main one to save them, and... Well... Fluttershy lamented that... When Tempest destroyed that form... She was heart-broken when Twilight... Did what she did, as she wanted DESPERATELY to explore the sea again.
  • Novo:... I... I had no idea one of 'em was so jovial about it.
  • Celestia: Well, now you do. She loves animals, and she wanted to explore new environments to see new animals. Really... This whole thing could've been avoided... If you had just seen how desperate they were, or at the very least not taking Twilight's actions so seriously and talk it out instead of casting them out. Twilight is a stressful and easily-frustrated pony, even if she was a princess for 5 years. She had, and has, a LOT to learn. And after the pain she went through, to see you say no to her, though understandable given you were in a near-similar situation... Was like saying you didn't care for her home.
  • Novo: I assure you, your highness, I never meant in the SLIGHTEST to imply such muck like that-
  • Celestia: That much I can understand. It's just, Twilight simply doesn't respond well to rejection, even if there's an understandable reason behind it. I mean, your kind ARE descended from us after all. It's... Not exactly wise to not see the mental pain she went through.
  • Luna: Admit it, if the situation were reversed, and it was YOU asking TWILIGHT for help and she passed... Would YOU have done the same?
  • Novo:... I s'pose I would've... If I WAS as desperate as she was when she came... Well... If it helps... Before they left... She gave me a reality check by-
  • Celestia: By calling you a coward and almost turning your subjects against you. I admit, it's not a well-advised move, but... It's something she'd do if she was too desperate and if you were pretty unreasonable. Twilight STILL feels bad for what happened afterwards.
  • Novo:... I am TERRIBLY sorry, your highness. I wish to make it up to 'em, more than ever now.
  • Celestia:... Well, you can start, by giving them their seapony forms back... Mainly, for Fluttershy... And hopefully... Fix a few things. As merponies, they had snags, like changing to the fins in the presence of seawater, and anything similar... For example, they shifted to it when it's not needed when they were crying, and the tears induced the fins to pop out.
  • Novo: Our presence with Maricolous have allowed us to get past any faults our merpony cousins had. So... The request is granted. And not just for her... But given she saved Equantica... For Marenia and Oceanious.
  • Luna: Thank you. If you wish to talk about this further... You know where to find us. (The two teleported away)
  • (Spike):... Wait... Skystar, knew about our argument?
  • (Novo): That's what she's been doin' since she watched me lament. (Skystar was seen secretly following the Mane Six and Spike as their bubble helmets finally subsided and they swam as fast as they could to the surface, and reached it as she watched them argue)...
  • (Skystar):... Watching you six... Tear yourselves up like that... It was just... Too much! (She swam underneath before they noticed as she sobbed to herself)... I said I talked it out to Shelly and Sheldon... And THAT'S where it all happened.
  • Skystar:... So... They didn't mean any harm at all!... They... They... Hmm?... Oh, yeah... I guess they were looking TOO desperate that they'd do this. The Storm King left us in a similar desperate panic for the seaponies to give us salvation, so his threat can induce a similar desperation to our pony ancestors.... Hmm?... Help them?... I don't know... Mom doesn't look that easily convinced. (She noticed her)... Speaking of which... Hmm?... (Sighs) Fine!... I'll take a shot at it anyway!... I'm just gonna wait to see how it plays out for HER!... (She followed her)...

Present

  • Novo:... So, in conclusion... Yall' are welcome in Seaquestria and can visit anytime you want.
  • Twilight:... (The two hugged) I, am SO sorry! I was just... I was as scared as you, and my friends weren't helping over the past few days since my Alicorn godmother, godaunt, and sister-in-law and best babysitter were turned to coal... And I was too desperate to solve things to the best of my ability... I ended up making a BIG mistake... As I couldn't trust my own friends out of fear they'd screw everything up again!
  • Novo:... It's alright, my child! Just... Let it all out!... And let's NEVER mention or be ashamed of that stuff again!
  • Twilight: (Sighs as they separated)... But, onto the task at hand. Do you know why we're here?
  • Queen Novo: Indeed. Storm King seems to have been resurrected by his ditzy sister, and now he's got his father's staff and is through a HELLUVA lotta effort trying to get us again after Skystar's help in 2017. We had to postpone our efforts to rebuild Mount Aris, or preserve what WAS rebuilt given what you saw up there, since that raging storm in the surface is tearin' the place apart. And given how much magic is being sucked up and tainted by it, I think it's only a matter of time before- (Suddenly, storm-like tremors were heard)
  • (Storm King): I HAVE YOU NOW, NOVO! YOU, THE PEARL, AND YOUR HIPPOGRIFF SUBJECTS ARE MINE!
  • Skystar: Oh, boy!
  • Spike: HOW THE HECK DID HE FIND US?!?
  • Merlin: I have no idea, but I feel we need to evacuate!
  • Novo: F*** what, I don't think so!! Since Hippogrifia was destroyed, I can't risk losing another kingdom, ESPECIALLY if it's of a very prosperous and important kingdom. I owe it to Abysswish to protect her home, and I AIN'T gonna back out of that promise, thank you! That Storm King wackjob has already destroyed enough as it is!
  • Icky: Well, what choice do we have? He's been ravaging any place we went to trying to find us. No doubt this will end up the same.
  • Fluttershy: NO! I won't allow this beautiful place to suffer the same fate! (Everyone was surprised by her sudden burst of confidence)
  • Shenzi:... Oh, boy!
  • Twilight: Fluttershy, I'm sure we can-
  • Fluttershy: No! I'm tired of watching innocents be hurt! If THIS goes down, we might as well go down with them!
  • Rarity: Fluttershy, dear, that's a little TOO confident!
  • Fluttershy: Is it? I'm sure the Pearl of Maricolous can restore what is destroyed.
  • Novo:... She... Actually makes a good point. Maricolous herself can repair what Storm King destroys, and I can make the right spell work if I have the right pearl.
  • Lord Shen: We know Storm King, and he's not going to let this place be repaired in the case he SHOULD be defeated. He's going to destroy as much as he can at all costs in the hopes they won't be a threat to him. Miss Fluttershy, if you wish to preserve this kingdom, you need to think pragmatically, and I don't think you-
  • Fluttershy: We six will help Novo and Skystar defend the pearls! The rest of you surround the kingdom and hold off the forces!
  • Lord Shen:...
  • Shenzi: Now THAT's pragmatic thinking!
  • Icky: Hey, I have to give ya some cred, Flutters. It's nice to have you be more proactive and not faint like a fainting goat.
  • Twilight: Well, animals are her greatest strength, so she could be fighting this for more than just the citizens.
  • Rainbow Dash: And since she saved Equantica, she's started to open up to the sea on a spiritual level. So, it's clear she's not going to let this place be trashed.
  • Fluttershy: (With assertively-loud tone) GET MOVING! (While the others skittered of, SpongeBob and Patrick had the same reaction to those words in Shanghaied) Alright, everyone, let's ride the wave, and keep Storm King from getting far! So... It's time to bring... A few more small things to get us ready! (The seaponies cheered as she and Skystar sang this, with a small lyric from Novo and Pinkie)

  • Fluttershy: (After song) Alright, are all the fish evacuated and in the sanctuary of Destiny Reef?
  • Seapony Guard: As they'll ever be!
  • Fluttershy: Scenery?
  • Seapony Guard #2: Check!
  • Fluttershy: Furniture and household appliances?
  • Seapony Guard #3: Accounted for!
  • Fluttershy: All seaponies evacuated?
  • Sir Ripple: Checkaroo!
  • Fluttershy: All the hippogriffs on the surface evacuated?
  • Straton: My brother already informed me and I already began the evacuation process during the song before Storm arrived, and he's coming in hot and fast! It won't be long before he find the pool entrance!
  • Fluttershy: Now the only thing left to get out of here is the Pearl and it's pearl offspring!
  • Twilight: You sure you won't fall for the same trick I used to-
  • Novo: Trust me, I installed a MUCH stronger security system apparatus around the pearls to ensure they ain't stolen so easily. The Pearl of Maricolous is safe in it's clam. The clam itself is literally impenetrable.
  • Fluttershy: Unless Storm King has the power to crack it open. But we have time to- (Underwater storms were heard, as currents were more active, more bubbles occurred everywhere, and everything was shaking)... Make that 'we're out of time'.
  • Sir Ripple: ALL UNITS, MOVE, MOVE, MOVE, MOVE!!!
  • Fluttershy: Let's get those pearls! NOW!
  • Virtue: You got anything for us, Fluts?
  • Fluttershy: Yep. You Guardians will defend the front lines. As for Storm? Someone will have to slow him down!
  • Icky: Leave that to me and Iago! We're GOOD at that s***!
  • Fluttershy: Good! The Lodgers can handle the middle lines. As for me? Me and my friends will help keep the Pearls safe! We'll join Novo and Skystar to do so.
  • Novo: You are very bold, Miss Fluttershy! I can see the tales Equantica tell of you are true.
  • Fluttershy: No time for touchy-feely, your majesty! We must move!
  • (Storm King): YOU CAN SWIM, BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE!!!
  • Fluttershy: (On seashell megaphone) THEN COME ON OUT HERE AND PROVE IT!!
  • (Storm King): IS THAT THE PONY MONSON IS IN LOVE WITH?!? OH, THIS WILL BE FUN!
  • Fluttershy: Come on! They'll be ready soon!
  • Trixie: Oh, before we get started, Trixie wants to know, can you give her a new seapony form so she isn't the odd one out? And maybe the griffin next to me so she doesn't have to be an eye sore anymore?
  • Gilda: Trixie, in this serious time, I doubt she would be quick to-
  • Novo: Well... If yall' can help Fluttershy pull this off... Then I may give it to you and the griffin as a reward.
  • Trixie: YAAY!!
  • Gilda: (Dubbed as Meg) WHAAAAAAAAAAAA?!?

20 seconds later...

  • Fluttershy: (The Storm King had his troops lined up, and he prepared to give the signal)... (On megaphone shell) NOW! (The Guardians and seapony guards went into action as this music played)
The Lego Videogame - The Depths Mission Theme (Tension)

The Lego Videogame - The Depths Mission Theme (Tension)

  • Muncher: Aww, geez, it's only been a few minutes and already our bros are getting whooped!!
  • Storm King: Oh, they're minions, what can you really do? (The Guards heard that) NOT TO SAY YOU'RE LIKE COPY PAPER TO ME! I RESPECT THE FALLEN!! NOW DO YOUR JOB!

(Later...)

  • Icky: YEAH?!? WELL AT LEAST I DON'T SOUND LIKE A BIRD CHOKING ON A PEANUT!
  • Iago: YEAH?!? WELL, AT LEAST I DON'T CRACK WEIRD AND DARK JOKES EVERY SECOND HE GETS!
  • Storm King: You two, if this is a way to distra-
  • Icky/Iago: SHUT UP, THIS DOESN'T CONCERN YOU!
  • Storm King: Oh, I apologize... WAIT, WHAT AM I APOLOGIZING FOR?!? (He blasts them through the rock walls in the tight spaces right to the pool entrance of Seaquestria)
  • Iago: (He was burnt and naked)... I hate it when that happens! (He wheezes and slides down)
  • Icky (Burnt and naked as well) That's... My... Oh, f*** it! (He wheezed and fainted)
  • Storm King: CANNONBALL! (He jumps into the pool, casts a bubble helmet to breath, and followed the sea caves with the others following with bubble helmets, storming in with his magic)... HEEEEERE'S (He burst in with his forces and Muncher) STORMY!... (All the seaponies and everything else was evacuated as everything, including the reef fauna and flora, were gone, and there was just an empty sea cave)... Wha... What gives? (He swam rapidly to Fluttershy near the portal as she giggled) Oh, no! NO, YOU DIDN'T!!
  • Fluttershy: Oh, but we did! Played you like a fiddle and cut the strings! Too bad we did, because I feel like singing the sea's saddest song. (With the same smirk she had with Discord in Dungeons and Discords) What'cha gonna do about it, satyr, huh? Come at me, bro! (Storm King got angry and failed to zap her as the portal shut on them)...
  • Muncher:... Sir?
  • Storm King:... HOW?!? HOW WERE THEY PREPARED?!? Those delegates for Hippogrifia back in Hippogriffinstone explicitly told me that they were underneath Mount Aris, and that I needed to follow the seashell trail to the pool entrance exactly! SO WHAT THE HELL?!?
  • Muncher: Maybe... Maybe they warned them beforehand and before we came, and perhaps they know where to find them next.
  • Storm King:... But... I ARRIVED TOO LATE! THEY'RE ALL GONE! THERE'S NO ONE LEFT TO TELL ME! I LOST MY REVENGE!
  • Muncher:... Spongecake? (He ended up getting a literal sponge)... Where the heck did my- (Storm King shocked him) AAAHHHH!!
  • Storm King: AAAAAAAAAAAEEEEEAARRRRGGGHHHHH!!!! (He shook the entire cave and caused a lot of damage and bubbles in anger with his powers) I CAN'T BELIEVE WE CAME ALL THE WAY OUT HERE AND SPENT THIS TIME AND EFFORT SEA SPELUNKING AND WRECKING WHALE S*** FOR NOTHING! SERIOUSLY, I'M SURPRISED WE DIDN'T HEAR CHILDISH SINGING ON THE WAY HERE AND IN EQUESTRIA BEFOREHAND, BECAUSE EVERYPONY'S CUTESY AND ACTS LIKE F*****G KIDS!!! NOT TO MENTION I LOST TEMPEST AND GRUBBER, THE LATTER OF WHOM SPENT SO MANY BITS ON LONG DATES WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND, WHO I AM CONVINCED IS NAMED PIE!!!
  • Muncher: Your highness?
  • Storm King: WHAAAT?!?!?!
  • Muncher: There might still be a few nearby and hiding. Maybe you should use your magic.
  • Storm King:... (He used his visual senses to locate Straton who was struggling in the storm after helping Stratus)... Well, would you look at that? Stratus's silly brother in the Seaquestrian guard is still here! Good work, Muncher.
  • Muncher: Duh, well, all in a day's work, your highness!

(Later...) Destiny Reef

  • Fluttershy: (They evacuated to another corner of the sea within a beautiful underwater sanctuary overfilled with sea life of all kinds)... We... We did it!
  • Skystar: But, where's Stratus and Straton?
  • Fluttershy: They'll be here soon. They had to make sure all hippogriffs in Hippogrifia were evacuated. They can surely handle themselves.
  • Twilight: Fluttershy, that was AMAZING! You make a GOOD defender against situations like this! Pred would be SO proud of you!
  • Fluttershy: You could say, he washed off on me. (Everyone laughs as the fish cuddled Fluttershy in gratitude)
  • Skystar:... So... Now what?
  • Icky: Now we just need to make it that we put that goat-monkey in his place for good!
  • Fluttershy: (Covered in thankful fish) But, we need to have the seaponies in a safe location! We can't leave them here!
  • Novo: Well, lucky for yall', I picked Destiny Reef for a reason! C'mon! (They swam to a hidden grotto where they found something suspicious)... Watch! (She used one of the Pearls to open a portal)
  • Discord: WHOA, NELLY, THAT'S BRIGHT!!!
  • Fluttershy:... Is that-
  • Novo: Yes! This is our entry to the sea of Destiny Islands. I'm sure Marenia and Derek's home shores will provide us shelter until Seaquestria is safe.
  • Skystar: It was Harmony's idea, really.
  • Fluttershy: Harmony?
  • Skystar: It's Marenia and Derek's child. She's an eccentric and carefree child. She helped build underwater real estate and safe houses in case of emergency situations like this. Marenia said she named her, by full name, Kind Harmony Typhoonica, in honor of you.
  • Fluttershy:... Oh, that's so sweet! I have to meet her soon!
  • Skystar: So, you can thank her for thinking ahead. We have the means to be safe while you guys take care of the rest. I'd offered to come along, but... Mom forbid against that. You know what happened after I helped stop Storm King.
  • Icky: Ahhhh, no biggie, you did your part anyway. This episode's focusing on the newer stuff a bit more now, and it's best we keep it that way.
  • Fluttershy:... I just wanna thank you again for forgiving us for Twilight's stunt.
  • Novo: Well, since Celestia convinced me to, I've allowed yall' the seapony forms to use however you wish so it won't be a total loss. You can even manipulate em' at your leisure.
  • Fluttershy: We already found out.
  • Icky: Yeah, Tman's requested merpony form had worn it's mark since the movie, even if it's been 5 years since she got it.
  • Novo:... (Sighs)... Let's just ignore the delusional jibber-jabber, and go! Oh, and you two? (Trixie and Gilda faced her as she gave them their new seapony forms as Gilda had a new form similar to this much to her embarrassment as the seaponies went through the portal)
  • Skystar:... Guys... Beat Storm King within an inch of his life... AND HANG HIM UP BY HIS ENTRAILS!!! (She went through leaving the heroes astonished by her words)
  • Twilight:... I guess she hates him for what he made me do. Heh. Spirit.
  • Icky: I'm more worried about her being a closet sociopath. Even if the Storm King's a d***, that's rather extreme of her to suggest!
  • Pinkie: Being isolated in a single location for years can do that to you. She had clams named Shelly and Sheldon as friends before she met us, and when he left Twilight to be so desperate for the Pearl, and it made her lose her one chance of leaving... Well... She'd likely hold a grudge for something like that.
  • Fluttershy: (She was cuddled more by fish) Well, either way, let's get back to the mission at hand. (She shoos off the fish) Everyfish, I need space. I'll consider hanging out after all this is over. It's... Glad to help out the sea in it's time of need. Hopefully Straton will know where to go and reunite with them! (They head for the surface and to the same shore they left Seaquestria from as they dried themselves off)... (Shivers in the cold breeze)... Sad that the results AFTER a good swim in the sea can... Have it's disavantages! (She shivers cold as Capper gave her his coat to keep her warm)... Thanks!
  • Capper: Sure thing! I'm a cat, so I don't technically need it. All it's useful for is to be formal.
  • Chummer: SPEAK FOR YOURSELF! (He shivers) I always HATED the water, I look at it and it makes me itch. Being in it makes me cold for HOURS... (He shivers massively) AND THIS COAT DOES NOTHIIING!!!
  • Capper: Exactly! But I've gotten used to it once or twice, so sucks to be you. (Chummer stammered to himself)
  • Virtue: Now we just wait for Stratus, and hope that his brother got through safely-
  • ???: GUYS! (Stratus came in)... STRATON'S BEEN CAPTURED BY STORM KING!!! (Everyone gasped)
  • Fluttershy: Oh, no!
  • Stratus: I was gonna go through the Destiny Islands portal to check on the evacuated hippogriffs and seaponies, then I heard him being captured by that brute! He's likely gonna use him to find both them AND Hippogriffinstone and destroy them!
  • Icky: OH, THAT DIRTY CHEAT!!
  • Fluttershy: Then we gotta stop him!
  • Paige: Well, you can't do it right now. These storms are making it hard for us to find his castle.
  • Stratus:... Then we MUST find Tempest, FAST!

Saving Tempest And The Bushwoolies/Defeating Valkyrie/The Story of the Storm Clan

Bushwoolia

  • Celaeno:... Here we are, mateys! Bushwoolia! Believe it or not, this place was targeted by Changelings because it is apparently the second biggest container of love on this world.
  • Twilight: That doesn't sound all too bad.
  • Celaeno: And... Apparently, it's right next to a dead land that used to be the homeland of some allies to them that the Changelings apparently sucked dry of their love after being catapulted there during their first invasion of Canterlot.
  • Rainbow Dash:... Well, S***! I hope that doesn't bite us in the flanks!
  • SpongeBob: Well, I'm sure they seem harmless enough to interact with regardless.
  • Celaeno: Do remember that they cannot speak English, and they act as groups. They are curious and shy, and they are a little too welcoming.
  • Duke: Then they'll need some help!
  • Thunderclap: Indeed. We'll just need to- (They entered a powerful storm cloud as it caused a lot of damage as Storm King's face formed in the clouds as he laughed, and the airship crashed into a lake, where everyone recovered as, upon reaching the surface, they see a powerful thunderstorm and hard-pouring rain was seen)
  • Alex: HOLY F*****G ASS CRACKERS OF ROBOT CHICKEN!!! STORM KING'S GOING ALL OUT!!
  • Marty: HE MUST'VE FINALLY FOUND TEMPEST!!
  • Samson: AT LEAST WE'RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK!!!
  • Sandy: YEAH, BUT I THINK WE GOT OTHER THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT, IF YALL HADN'T NOTICED!! WE NEED TO GET TO LAND- (The waves plowed them around as they couldn't get to air, nor use an aqua spell until all except the water-breathers finally drowned)...
  • (SpongeBob): GUYS! GUYS! COME ON, WE CAN MAKE IT... GUUUUYSSS... (Everything faded to black)

Later...

  • Twilight: (She woke up with an ice pack on her head in a hospital-like hut)... Oh, CELESTIA! Those waves hit hard!... (She woke to discover that small multi-colored fluffy beings with much more cutesy MLP eyes, human-like hands and feet, and spoke in cutesy utterances had healed her, and did the same for her friends, doing CPR, bandaging hurt areas, and outside were Ewok-like village inside treetops, and out there were grounded villages and the lake they drowned in was in the distance, and this music plays)

Ice Age Continental Drift Soundtrack - 07 Hydraxes Prison Talk John Powell

  • Applejack: What in tarnation?
  • Celaeno: I think we found our cutesy critters.
  • Icky: Hmm. They DO seem to look more detailed than their G1 Ancestors.
  • Twilight:... Well... Thank you for the help, but... We may need some more help than THAT. (The Mane Six and other pony gang got up)... Do you know where we can find Tempest Shadow? Pony, Fuchsia-colored Mohawk, broken horn, scar, dark armor, hangs out with a glutton dog-hedgehog thing? (The Bushwoolies stood there silent)... You got no idea what I'm saying, do you?
  • Celaeno: I told you, they don't speak English.
  • Twilight: Sorta thought they only couldn't SPEAK it.
  • Fluttershy: But they are awfully nice. (She pets one of them) And SOOO CUTE!
  • Twilight:... Do they happen to know where Tempest is?
  • SpongeBob: (He came in) Well, they do. They actually locked her and Grubsy up. Apparently, before she could redeem herself, she found out she couldn't speak to them, and they had her sent to a cell for helping Storm King ravage their home a year before he attacked Equestria.
  • Squidward: And we couldn't speak to them either. But we learned they can shatter the fourth wall, they are as annoying as characters like Orco, Snarf, Scrappy-Doo, and other annoying-ass characters, and apparently, they breed like Star Trek tribbles, and they seem to suffer a lotta household accidents, they don't fear death unless they're threatened with invasion and/or extinction, among other reasons, as a result of their isolation from danger itself, and thus they can ALSO be a little too accepting and loving unless people leave bad reps like Tempest and Stormy, and they seem to be confused of strangers, they can feel little to no pain like Mort- Okay, I don't care about telling everything about them, or we're gonna be here all day! If MLP is good at anything, it's stating the obvious, even right after it happens! Seriously, what's up with that?
  • Starlight: Best not to ask too many questions! Like we said, that's sounding a little racist nowadays.
  • Squidward: It's not racist if it's true. (Mr. Krabs slapped him) OW! OKAY, SORRY!
  • Missing Link: Heck, they wouldn't even let us near Tempest.

Flashback

  • SpongeBob: (He and the other ones that got through were at a tree-based prison) Okay, I don't see what the big deal is! Tempest is not a bad guy anymore! (The Bushwoolie Guard made noises aggressively)
  • Squidward:... WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU SAYING?!?
  • Missing Link: Squidward, calm down! I'm sure we can figure this out!
  • Squidward: You know what? Screw negotiating with these little itling turds! We're going in anyway!
  • SpongeBob: I don't think that's a good idea!
  • Squidward: Oh, what're they gonna do? Snuggle us to death? (The Bushwoolie stepped on his foot) AAAHHH!! RIGHT IN THE HOUSE FANCY WOUND!!! (The Bushwoolies began to attack them in a similar fashion as Rafael's kids did to Blu and Jewel in Rio as this music played)
Spongebob Music Sponge Monger

Spongebob Music Sponge Monger

  • Bushwoolie Warden: (The heroes fell in front of the leader's feet)... (He made noises that sounded like "ATTACK" as the Bushwoolies got out crossbows, and the heroes were like this)
SMG4 SFX- OHHHH SHIT!!!

SMG4 SFX- OHHHH SHIT!!!

  • BOOM!
  • Squidward:... Ouch! (The Bushwoolie Warden pointed sternly for them to leave)...

Present

  • Squidward: For small hairballs, they seem pretty ruthless!
  • Icky: Jesus Christ, what did Edgelord Pony herself do to piss them off this badly that they don't even allow visiting hours?
  • Sandy:... I think I gotta durn good idea! (She pointed at a nearby area as Valkyrie was seen with Storm Guards slave-driving Bushwoolies into making defenses) I think our bitchy friend from Drungar's back for another round.
  • Valkyrie: YOU CALL THIS FOOLPROOF, YOU MISERABLE RUNTS?!? THIS IS AS AIR-TIGHT AS A PILLOW FORT!!! MY BROTHER'S GONNA WIPE HIS FLOORS WITH YOU UNLESS YOU STEP UP! SO EITHER YOU HAVE THIS PLACE FORTIFIED ENOUGH TO KEEP THOSE LODGERS, HEROES, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, TEMPEST AND GRUBBER, FROM LEAVING BY SUNDOWN, OR I'M GONNA MAKE SURE HE MAKES THIS STORM, PERMANENT!! (A small thunderbird was seen zapping many of the Bushwoolies who cartoonishly turned into static balls of fur)
  • Sandy:... Clearly Stormy's not the only cranky and nutty member of the family.
  • Phil: (He sees her and falls blindy in love)... Helloooo! Who's that sexy thing? (The Lodgers look at him funny)... Oh come on, we DID find out that they're actually satyrs and not yeti-things after all! Also, she was wearing a full robe back then, I didn't get a good look at her, and now that she isn't... Well, woof!
  • Twilight: It's a good thing Tempest gifted me a copy of the Storm King's family biography so we would know what to look out for when it comes to the Storm Clan. (Opens up to Valkyrie's page)... Here she is!... Apparently, her name is Altus Storm, AKA The Wooly Queen- (The heroes laughed)... Later renamed 'The Valkyrie Queen' for more serious requirements in due to being laughed at like that. According to the book, she is very embittered about being subservient to the Storm King, real name Sacana Storm, after being robbed of the oppertunity to make a name for herself and instead be a stooge to him. She lost her staff, the Staff of Altus, after she misused it roughly, and turned herself to ice, until she was restored and it was replaced by the thunderbird she rescued as a chick, Morgen.
  • Lord Shen: So I trust this means that The Storm Clan is not so harmonious with each other?
  • Icky: As already proven by his fatass brother from the Underground!
  • Twilight: Well, this MUST be the sister who resurrected Storm King. Morgen acts well as a replacement for her staff and is like an eye-in-the-sky and an unexpected shocker.
  • SpongeBob:... (He notices the Bushwoolies being abused by Valkyrie)... Wait... Maybe we can help each other.
  • Pinkie: You mean, work with the Bushwoolies?
  • SpongeBob: Yeah, why not?
  • Squidward: Uh, did they give you a concussion strong enough to forget THEY BEAT US ALL UP FOR TRYING TO ASK FOR TEMPEST?!?
  • SpongeBob: I'm sure we can convince them that this is all a big misunderstanding.
  • Rainbow Dash: Oh, sure, convince these cute but dangerous furballs that we're gonna save them, even though we were told they're about as dumb as a dodo!
  • Mr. Dodo: Hmmph! Speciesist much?
  • Rainbow Dash: Hey, like Squid said, it's not exactly speciesist if it's true for normal dodos!
  • Mr. Dodo: (Scoffs) Well I NEVER!
  • Rainbow Dash: (Gazelle gave her a nasty look) Oh, don't gimme that look, it's not MY fault dodos are naturally fearless!
  • Lord Shen: Okay, enough! Before we end up causing another Gazelle rage-out scene, let's focus on the task at hand!
  • SpongeBob: Let's just find the leader of this place, and get this over with, please?

Small Royal Palace

  • Leader Bushwoolie: (He was making cute noises)
  • Discord:... Well, I'm out, I have no idea what they're saying!
  • Tulio: Can't you just use magic to make your own subtitles? I mean, that's stupid when all-powerful creatures like Cosmo and Wanda can't understand different languages like animals, and yet they stupidly don't think to make subtitles for themselves! It makes no sense! (The Bushwoolie leader called for security as they came in)
  • SpongeBob: Well, worth a shot!
  • Pinkie: (Sighs) Lemme try! (She did this)
Ice age 4 sweet lil beasts

Ice age 4 sweet lil beasts

  • Mullet: THAT they got?
  • Pinkie: Yep. He says his name is King Twee, and he understood perfectly.
  • Discord: Yeah, for a bunch of blabber.
  • Fluttershy: Discord, be nice!
  • Pinkie: Yeah. Besides, he says his beloved wife, Queen Squee, is among those in Valkyrie's slavery, as she's holding her hostage to keep him from fighting back. If we can save her, they might consider forgiving Tempest and Grubber. He'll offer his best troops, Budster, Hugster, Cheerster, and Chumster to help.
  • Icky: HUEGH!
  • Iago: (Scoffs as King Twee face-palmed)
  • Pinkie:... I think they've gotten that a lot.
  • Shenzi: I'm with cotton candy hair on that one! (She slaps the two of them)
  • Icky/Iago: OW!!!
  • Twilight: Let's just help free his wife and friends, and chase Storm's sister away. (The music climaxed and they celebrated, unaware that Valkyrie's thunderbird Morgen was watching them and flew off)

Bushwoolia Prison, Later That Night

  • Tempest: (Twilight and the others came)... It's about time you showed up. I heard QUITE the scene this morning.
  • Twilight: Yeah, we had yet to introduce you to the Lodge. Blame Storm King for that.
  • Tempest: WAIT, WHAT?! Storm King's dead!
  • Twilight: Yeah, turns out... He was resurrected thanks to Valkyrie, of which that bitch is tormenting the Bushwoolies here.
  • Tempest: Storm King's sister? I figured she would be too upset about her humiliation to him during the family tournament to ever bring him back. That is unless... Family obligation made her do so.
  • Sparx: Oh, that was only half of it. The family turned pitifully weak, and with Stormy back, they're planning to go back to their powerful roots.
  • Twilight: That's not to say his father survived the broken-heartedness of it, though. He gave Storm King his staff.
  • Tempest: The Hurricane King? He's dead?
  • Applejack: Yep. He got his staff in paid respect, and is using it to finish what he started.
  • Grubber: Well, dang! Looks like we're in deep chocolate now! (Pinkie scoffed)
  • Rarity:... Pinkie, dear, I think you've been hanging around Deadpool too much.
  • Twilight: But let's cut to the chase. We came out here because The Storm King is after you again.
  • Grubber: I thought Storm King was done with Tempest. Didn't he back out on his promise to restore your horn and make it stronger?
  • Rainbow Dash: Apparently, he changed his mind. You killing him, ended up making him want you more then he did originally.
  • Larry: Oh, and he's got hostages. He's got Pred and his daughters, Shineflare, a hippogriff he aims to beat information out of, and... Your little sister Hidden and your mother Aphelion.
  • Tempest: MOTHER?!? SHE'S ALIVE?!?
  • Larry: He also almost had your friends from your hometown, but we stopped that!
  • Tempest:... Well, that's great and all, BUT SERIOUSLY, MOTHER'S ALIVE?!?
  • Twilight:... She came right at us and attacked us when she asked about you and Storm King.
  • Spike: Didn't take it well when we told her you were not in Equestria and Storm King was still alive. She had a broken horn, tear-driven red eyes, a wounded war-torn appearance, and-
  • Pinkie: And a sensitivity to popping balloons! She attacked me after I popped a balloon!
  • Twilight: She means PTSD.
  • Tempest:... (Sighs)... Mother, what have you been doing to yourself?
  • SpongeBob: He MAY be reconsidering returning the promise again, but in his case, it's never without a price. We had to find you before he did, but given Valkyrie's here... Well, at least we got to you first while she was too busy smacking those woolies around.
  • Tempest:... (Sighs)... It was about time I faced my family's past. I've started getting back old memories since I left Equestria. When I said my real name was Fizzlepop Berrytwist... It turns out, that was my foster name back when-
  • Twilight: Back when you were suffering amnesia in Drungar. Your mother gave us the idea. She says she has amnesia too because she forgot how you were lost to her, and... Has THAT been popping in your head by any chance?
  • Tempest: Sadly, it's still a blur. I remember believing my mother died when we took on Storm King... But I don't know what I was doing there. I was likely too young to be in the military. I must've been there for a reason.
  • Spike: Well, I'd say she was trying to save you, but you saved yourself and ended up in Drungar. Then she kept trying afterward, yet has done nothing but fail because Stormy was just too smart for her. She had to hide from your little sister to keep her safe. But he got to Shineflare to get infomation, and now Storm King has your mother, and he's keeping her hostage until you come back.
  • Tempest: Well... It's not like I can go anywhere because thanks to these hairy fools holding grudges over what Valkyrie's actions.
  • Icky: Okay, just because they can't understand you, doesn't mean you can berate and insult them. It won't help either way!
  • Twilight: We talked to the natives, anyway, and they said if we deal with Valkyrie, they'll consider letting you and Grubber out.
  • Tempest: Well, good to know then. So... No hard feelings for indulging your hurt friendship?
  • Twilight:... (Sighs)... You know, it REALLY would've helped if you hadn't brought that back up?! (She sobs again)
  • Tempest:... Oops.
  • Grubber/Mr. Whiskers: OOPS?!?
  • Soothsayer: Twilight has had it rough about that since this whole mission started. We went to the Guardians of Harmony in Questra, and she almost snapped that we were better off not protecting Equestria after we made a scene before Gazelle stopped her.
  • Gazelle: So, as you can see, she does NOT wanna talk about it!
  • Applejack: (She comforted a crying Twilight) Twi, just let it go! It's still understandable. I admit, we were getting off-track by being distracted through the wonders outside of Equestria when Stormy ransacked it that we didn't see OR think clearly. Pinkie didn't necessarily help for trustin' Capper OR urging Rainbow's Rainboom.
  • Pinkie: I said I was sorry, okay? Can we PLEASE not make that such a big deal? It's kinda what I do!
  • Rainbow Dash: Yeah, but sometimes, you can't throw parties every chance you get and expect things work out. The world outside Equestria doesn't work like that.... At least, not anymore. But let's just get back on track so Twilight won't start another scene, she's done one too many as it is. Tempest, your mother has ended up running out on us for the Storm King's Castle to try and save Hidden, and it's too clear what's gonna happen. It's going to end up no different than the last few times, but worse given his increased strength. We're gonna need your help.
  • Tempest: As much as I wish to, I don't have that same nerve to take on a challenge head-on like I used to. I don't fear the Storm King or his vain bitter sister, I just...  I just don't have it in me anymore to hurt anyone.
  • Icky: OH, DON'T F*****G TELL ME YOU'RE GOING PACIFIST ON US TOO!! IT'S BAD ENOUGH WE ENDED UP MAKING IDIOTS OUT OF OURSELVES IN FRONT OF THE GUARDIANS OF HARMONY AND PISSED TWILIGHT OFF THAT WAY, AND THEY WUSSED OUT ON US BECAUSE OF THUNDER KING BEING A BIG BROTHER D***, BUT NOW STORM KING'S FORMER BADASS HENCHWOMAN IS TURNING INTO A TALLER FLUTTERSHY?!?
  • Tempest: You live the next few years of your life since fillyhood amnesia thinking that everyone in the world needed to be so perfect in their power, they couldn't waste it on pointless pursuits and acts of fun, as if I knew how the world worked when really I only knew HALF of it, then you can ride that high horse all day long.
  • Icky: I'M JUST TRYING TO SAY THAT YOU SHOULDN'T TURN FROM A BADASS EDGELORD HORSE TO A COMPLETE AND F*****G P***Y! EVEN FLUTTERSHY HAS MORE BALLS THAN YOU RIGHT NOW FOR ACTUALLY HELPING US, ESPECIALLY SINCE SHE HELPED GET KLUGETOWN ON THE RIGHT DIRECTION BY REUNITING A GIANT BIRD WITH HER KIDS, AND THEEEEN LEADING THE CHARGE IN SAVING SEAQUESTRIA!! THAT, WAS BADASS FOR SOMEONE WHOSE NORMALLY A WUSS! (Fluttershy blushed) BUT YOU?!? YOU'RE LIKE HER IF SHE GOT DRUNK AND FAINTED WHEN SEEING A BUTTERFLY!! AND THAT'S ON HER BUTT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! (Fluttershy blushed harder)
  • Tempest: OKAY, THAT DOES IT!! (She breaks the bars apart and frees herself) I'M HAVING A FEAST FIT FOR A MINOTAUR KING, AND YOU'RE INVITED, YOU LOUDMOUTH ANNOYANCE!!
  • Icky:... S***-S***-S***-S******!!! (He ran comically away from Tempest as she chased him with a sparking broken horn)
  • Lord Shen:... Give the prehistoric one credit, no one makes people want to be violent to an idiot more than Icky!

Later...

  • Tempest: (She was back in a cell)... Dammit!
  • Squidward: Do remember that those little mini-its aren't always cute and cuddly.
  • Tempest: I got the idea when they locked me in here the first place! At least they showed mercy since you talked to them!
  • Grubber: Cake?
  • Tempest: (She splatted the cake in his face) SPARE ME THE SUGAR, GRUBBER, THAT'S NOT GONNA HELP ME!
  • Lord Shen: But at least we made sure you're not a complete pushover. Just... Just leave Valkyrie to us.
  • Tempest: Not like I have a say in the matter being in here. Just be careful. You have NO idea what you're up against out there!
  • Lord Shen: Well, neither does Valkyrie!

(Later...)

  • Twilight:... Okay, we're gonna need the help of everyone here to bring down Valkyrie! We're gonna hit her hard and fast! Bud, Hug, Cheer, Chum, you know what to do right? (They did cute noises and awesome stuff)... I'll take that as a yes! You girls will free the others and the Queen! As for the Lodgers, they'll handle the minions, and the Guardians will help quell down Valkyrie until we're ready to take her out personally.
  • Tempest: (From her cell) Well, that'd be a good plan... Except you didn't count for her pet bird Morgen, whose a GOOD spy, and could've anticipated for your plan before they were in motion.
  • Twilight:... Oh, no!
  • ???: OH, YES! (Storm Minions surrounded them, as Morgen chuckled wickedly upon being perched onto Valkyrie)
  • Valkyrie: (Chuckles) You ponies are good, but just not good enough! I'm lucky I had Morgen with me!
  • Rainbow Dash:... I'd strangle that bird right now if it wasn't for Fluttershy AND it's thunder powers! Let alone the fact that Gazelle would kick my ass over it.
  • Valkyrie: Well fact of the matter is, I got you right where I-
  • Discord: (He shushed her softly)... Do you hear that?
  • Valkyrie: Do I hear wha- (He snaps, and erased their memories of the heroes' presence and placed them into a sleep)
  • Discord: Eh, must've just been the wind!
  • Rainbow Dash: (She scoffs) I didn't think you'd get any funnier than The Snake, but you just found a way!
  • Discord: That's because I'm awesome, and I always have been even as a villain, and people like ILoveKimPossibleALot agree! Let's just try this again at another place and be more cautious next time!

12 minutes later...

  • Valkyrie: (She woke up and yawned)... Morgen, did we fall asleep? (Morgen squawked)... Yeah, we seemed to.... What were we doing here, anyway?... Did we get drunk again?
  • Storm Guard #1: I swear, Valkyrie, after a beating I inflicted with something like that last time, we'd DEFINITELY not do something like THAT again!
  • Valkyrie: Perhaps the drinking got us mind-cracked, and you don't remember. Let's just get outta here and wash this off like the bad hangover it was!... (They headed to their base to discover the heroes were already at work) WHAT?!?
  • Twilight: NICE WORK! WE GOT IT!
  • Valkyrie: No, no, NO!!! THEY KNOCKED US OUT BEFORE WE GOT THEM!!! STOP THEM! GO, GO, GO, GO!! (The heroes were already at her slave camp) DON'T LET THEM GET THE QUEEN OUTTA THERE!!! (Morgen flew down and struck many of them with lightning until Capper used Mushu and Spike as flamethrowers like in the movie, but more powerfully as it turned Morgen naked in a same fashion as Shan Yu's falcon, as it made a chicken sound in embarrisment, then it fell right into the water with a splash)
  • Mushu: Now THAT'S what I call Equestrian barbecue!... Wait, I think my cousin once said that.
  • Valkyrie: MORGEN!!! MY LITTLE POOPSIE!!
  • Thunderclap: (He squawk laughed)... I'm sorry, but, that's probably the last thing that bird wanted to hear from you!
  • Icky: (Morgen surfaced) And hey, at least your bird's still okay- (Another chicken sound was heard with a loud chomp as a Cragodile was seen around the area patting a full belly, with a burp)... Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... Karma, you bitch! (Fluttershy began to whimper)
  • Gazelle:... We're sorry for your loss.
  • Valkyrie:... OH, YOU MOTHERF*****S! (She summons a storm cloud similar to DBZ Flying Nimbus and hops on it) I'M COMING FOR YOU, HEROES! (The Nimbus Cloud began to produce hail at them as Twilight quickly shielded the group from them)
  • Icky: Hey, cool it lady!! That was mostly a freak accident!!
  • Valkyrie: IT'S STILL YOUR FAULT! I WILL NOT LET MY LITTLE POOPSIE GO UNAVENGED! (She used the Nimbus Cloud to produce lightning and attacked them many times causing everyone to yelp in panic as she cackled, all until Discord went towards her)
  • Starlight: DISCORD, WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU GOING?!? (Discord slowly approached her with an albeit cracking expression and he did this to her)

Nostalgia critic Suburban Knights Part 4

At 3:31

  • Valkyrie: AAHH!! (She staggered off the cloud in pain after being sprayed and into the water, and she surfaced with her eyes in pain) OH, YOU TORTUROUS FOOLS!!! AAHHHHH!!! YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE LAST OF UUUUS!! (She teleported all their forces away)
  • Pang Bing:... Wow, pulled a me on her, huh?
  • Fluttershy: I feel so... Awful about what happened to Morgen!
  • Icky: Well, it's not like there's gonna be a last-minute change where the Cragodile spat the bird back out for some stupid reason- (The Cragodile was seen flying into the sky with lightning coming out of it's mouth as it spat out the still-humiliated Morgen as it chicken screamed and crashed into the boat)... Well, there ya go! I take back calling karma a bitch then!
  • Fluttershy: (She watched with teary eyes as Morgen was looking around and saw no sign of Valkyrie, and started to sob-squawk as it came to believe that it was abandoned)... Oh, I can't stand watching that poor creature be like this! (Fluttershy came up to it and gave it a serious hug as Morgen at first looked surprised and angered, but then realizes that this is a kind, if still unwarranted, embrace that that Valkyrie never really did in a way that was genuine. Morgen then returned the embrace)
  • Capper: (He watched as the Cragodile landed with a sore throat, made honks and hacks as it went back into the water with a huge splash)... Well... That was... Unexpected!
  • Twilight: But, at least we saved the Bushwoolies.
  • Icky: Now what?
  • Lord Shen: Isn't it obvious, simpleton? We go after The Storm King next! It's about time we put that fiend in his place for good!
  • Miguel: Yeah, and God knows Tempest needs to confront Storm King sooner or later. He's got Aphelion and Hidden, among others! So we NEED to take this to his doorstep! (The Bushwoolies made noises, offering to help them)...
  • Pinkie:... I think they wanna help.
  • SpongeBob: Then tell them they have to bring their best 'GRRR' face, because this is going to be a DOOZY of a showdown! (They made menacing faces that actually scared them into comical situations) HOLY DUTCHMAN'S GHOST!!!
  • Fluttershy: YIKES!
  • Mushu: THERE, THAT'S OUR TOUGH-LOOKING CUTIES, THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! NOW GET OUT THERE AND MAKE US PROUD! (The Bushwoolies got ready as this music played and they freed Tempest and Grubber)
Pirating The Pirates

Pirating The Pirates

2:35-2:30

  • Tempest:... I'm coming for you, Storm King! (Grubber was about to comment) And before you say it, Grubber, I meant come with an O!
  • Grubber: Riiiiiight, just making sure!
  • Icky: Yeesh, way to bring down a serious climax to the next chapter, chubsy!
  • Grubber: Hey, Chubster was my cousin's name! On top of that, when you hear a joke about those two homonyms, it's hard to take the more modest one seriously!
  • Icky:... (Sighs) I know, dude! I know!

(Later...)

  • Twilight:... (She was out looking into the distance as the storms continued...)... (Twilight: WELL MAYBE I WOULD'VE BEEN BETTER OFF WITHOUT FRIENDS LIKE YOU!!!", the words echoed in her mind)... (Sighs)...
  • Tempest: (She came in)... Hey, Twilight.
  • Twilight: Oh, hey!... Come in.
  • Tempest:... You look a little down.
  • Twilight: Don't mind me. It's just... I'm thinking about what to do once we get to the Storm King.
  • Tempest:... PLEASE tell me you're still not over the wounds you tore into yourself.
  • Twilight: Look, I'm sorry! It's just... I can't fight Storm King, without thinking of that event! His actions made me too desperate that I made an act I can't think pleasantly on!...
  • Tempest:... (Sighs)... I know how you feel! I can't think about doing good with my horn, broken or otherwise, without thinking of what it resulted in. I lost my two good friends, and I felt I couldn't fit in, so... So I had to look into the ways of hostile lands outside of your home, because, like I said, I believed I couldn't look up to my own kind anymore, because you apparently squandered your power for fun and parties.
  • Twilight: And that's not to say you taught me that not all lands in our world are as cheerful. But... I can't help but feel I'll make a similar mistake with the Lodgers, and in turn, the High Council!
  • Tempest: Look, Twilight-
  • Twilight: Oh, don't try to justify my fears, please! It's... It's too obvious, isn't it? Going outside my home made me see that life really IS not fair! Anywhere except Equestria is just a land of evil and corruption! I don't even see why we're the only land on this world who is passive and colorful!... M... Maybe you were right... Maybe we ARE a faulty race. Maybe... Maybe we're doomed to end up like the rest. I... (She sobs)... I... (She finally broke down in tears)
  • Tempest:... Twilight, please, don't cry! I mean, I don't get why Equestia isn't like the others, either! It's... It's a complete anomaly! But... After spending time with you... I can now see why. Isn't Equestria where all the magic in this universe originated from?
  • Twilight: *Sniff*... Yeah?
  • Tempest: And... And you ponies are supposed to be the purest beings known throughout the UUniverses?
  • Twilight:... Yes.
  • Tempest:... It's... All too clear. I was blinded into views because of where I was raised as an orphan since I was separated from mother. I... The Storm King!
  • Twilight: Tempest?
  • Tempest: Don't you see?!? It's the Storm King! It's ALWAYS been the Storm King! He's the one who views us ponies as an inferior race for wasting our power for frivolity! It all makes sense! His family motivation, his father's ways, everything! They have always viewed themselves as the only ones to lead this world fairly and safely.
  • Twilight:... Are you saying... Storm King is a sociopath?
  • Tempest: Maybe. And I think I know why the rest of the world is cruel in the first place!... It's them! The world wasn't always this cruel for THIS long. Hurricane King crafted the lands outside Equestria into one of evil!... But... The reason Equestria is the only thing pure of this world... Is because they were too resilient for them! They were so pure, they could persevere with whatever the Storm Clan could throw at them. Heck... It's perhaps the reason why you never ventured this far, and the land outside Equestria was so alien to you, because ponies thought it was far too dangerous! And with the world morphed by Hurricane... I... I'm a fool!
  • Twilight:... You... You were tricked?
  • Tempest: I believe I was! The STORM KING turned me into something I wasn't, and used my loneliness and isolation against me.
  • ???: He did, actually! (Grubber came in)
  • Grubber:... I WAS his second-in-command at the time after all since Strife left. I was around him long enough to know his family clan! They believe they are the ones who rightfully own the world, and discourage by tainting people worldwide. It's only one of their strongest strategies of world domination. After all, each member of the clan had an impact on every land that's hostile. The world really WAS pure back then. I mean, there WAS a Chaos War long ago, and with ponies, the purest beings of the world capable of making a big difference like their Alicorn God creators, isolating themselves to a single land, it allowed the Clan to claim the recovering land.
  • Twilight:... (She and Tempest looked at each other)
  • Tempest:... I really AM a fool!
  • Grubber: I'd say you are. I really hated Storm King and his family, too. I mean, how do you think me and Muncher came into his loyalties? Our home was one of his many victims. The Clan attacked countless lands and took them over, swearing not to stop until they got every last one. But... Equestria, was problematic, because that was where the ones who made it pure and peaceful to begin with lived since the Chaos Wars.
  • Twilight:... So... It's too clear why Storm hired you, Tempest! Because he-
  • Tempest: Because he wanted a pony on his side to discourage our kind! He inflicted those wounds of regret upon you!
  • Twilight:... I'm a fool!
  • Grubber: Yeah, perhaps you're BOTH fools for falling for Storm King's tricks. Their clan are pretty damn smart, and they knew that Equestria would pose a possible threat. So, Hurricane suggested to Storm to find ways to discourage them and, hopefully, make them like the others, so their plans could be complete.
  • Twilight/Tempest:... That son of a bitch!
  • Grubber:... But that's actually not what I came to tell you about. Tempest? The Bushwoolies say they want to talk to you. They sensed a lot of torment within you that could be tangible in the battlefield. Apparently... These little furballs are good at crafting purities. Plus, they offer mental cures.
  • Tempest:... Mental cures?
  • Grubber: It's what they use for rehabilitation of the strongest fanatics out there. One spell they believe you can find useful. A mental spell that allows one to see the great of the past, the benefits of the present, and the horrors of the future. It's like Christmas Carol in a mental spell.
  • Tempest:... And how is that useful?
  • Grubber: They use it to encourage people who are mentally tormented. Perhaps you and Twilight can give it a try. Celestia knows you'll need it if you don't want it used against you.
  • Twilight:... Well... I DO know Equinox magic.
  • Grubber: So do they! But THEIRS is legendary! Not as much as bicorns, but still!

Healing Mental Wounds/Preparing For Battle

Later...

  • Buhwoolie Sage: (It made noises)
  • Pinkie:... She says her name's Charwoman Meister. She's the charwoman and a great provider of enlightenment and inner peace to her people. She can help you cleanse your mind of your damaging thoughts, and help you grow with your limited Equinox magic. Hopefully, Storm King won't be able to use you that way by the time we attack.
  • Twilight:... And you're sure we won't be hurt through this?
  • Pinkie: She says others have been hurt by experiencing these visions. She can not only show them to you, but allow you to give the same to others through the spell. She can predict outcomes easily as a former fortuneteller.
  • Twilight:... (Sighs)... Anything to put these hurtful things behind me!
  • Tempest: We're ready! (The Bushwoolie prepared a mental spell that brought them to sleep)...
  • Lord Shen:... Good luck, you two.... Because I feel as if you very well need it.

Twilight's Subconscious Past

  • (Twilight):... (She sees Canterlot)... This... This is my first home.... And the damage it took since the invasion of Grim-Nor. (Her past self came out as a cute toddler)... And... Is that me?
  • Cadance: Twilight, dear, don't wander too far now!
  • Twilight: Oh, don't worry, Cadance! Since that meany-weeny Grim-Nor's attack, the town's become temporarily cautious, so they're sure to recognize me as the filly being watched over by the niece of the Princess, and give the right-of-way.
  • Cadance:... (Giggles) You are just so adorablely smart for your age!
  • (Twilight): (Chuckles) I remember that. I was such an egghead back then. (She ran off until she bumped into a few familiar faces: Lemonheart and Twinkleshine roughly her age)...
  • Twilight: Oh, I am so sorry!
  • Lemonheart: Oh, it's quite alright!
  • Twinkleshine: Yeah! We may be kids, but we don't cry every time we're hurt anymore!
  • Lemonheart: Yeah, it's quite an anomaly for fillies really.
  • Twilight:... You're eggheads, too?
  • Twinkleshine: Well, that's a broad way of putting it.
  • Twilight: Oh, uh, sowwy, I mean, sorry, I mean, no, just sorry!
  • (Twilight):... I... I was clearly full of life back then. (She shifted further and went to at an older age)
  • Cadance: (As Shining left)... ("Could he be anymore adorable?")
  • Twilight: Miss Cadance? (Cadance grabbed her abruptly)
  • Cadance: Okay, Twilight Sparkle, first off... I need you to tell me absolutely every relevant piece of information you have about your brother! THEN... We will make cookies and have the best night EVER! Agreed?
  • Twilight: Oh... Okay... Wait... What?
  • (Twilight):... Ohhhh-hoo-hoo-hoooo! This is when Cadance and Shining Armor fell in love back in high school! It was so cute they made a comic depicting it!
  • Twilight: (Sing-songy) OHHHHHHHH, I GET IT! YOU LIIIIKE HIM! YOU THINK HE'S CUUUUUTE!
  • Cadance: Well I... Yes! Will you help me?
  • Twilight: That depends... Are you ready to take extensive notes on his likes and dislikes, to create several comparative charts about your popularity vs. his? Did you bring a label maker? Is your paper wide ruled or academy ruled?
  • Cadance: I have 37 different colors of paper for my label maker. I always have an abacus with me just in case I need percentages for a pie chart. Wide-ruled paper is for FOALS! Let's DO this!
  • Twilight: (With a determined grim)... Cadance... I think you and I will get along very well!
  • (Twilight): (She giggled with watering eyes) Oh, me kid, me silly when combined with intelligence! Though it kinda feels stupid of me in hindsight to not remember that when the wedding fiasco happened. Time really does make the mind forget. (Sighs)... I guess... It does help I like to help others like that. I did help play a part in their relation, and they got married later on. (The setting changes to a familiar one of a familiar university)... Where... Oh, no! NOT THIS CRAP AGAIN?! ANYTHING BUT-
  • ???: My most faithful student, I welcome you, to an extraordinary place!
  • (Twilight):... S***! (She saw her past self, who was excited, but nervous and Spike was being a pack mule for all of Twilight's things)
  • Spike: I know Twilight hatched me from an egg when she was young, but do I always have to be the pack mule?
  • (Twilight):... Ya know, I really should start giving Spike magical aide to better handle those bags.
  • Twilight: Is this where the most gifted ponies go?
  • Spike: AAAND I wasn't even acknowledged.
  • (Twilight):... I am so glad I am more well aware of Spike nowadays.
  • Celestia: Well, I'll let you in on a long kept secret. It doesn't just hold ponies. Creatures of magic legend attend here as well.
  • Twilight: They do? (A group of students are being lead by a sorority fairy)
  • Sorority Fairy: Okay, everyone. I'll be giving you all your orientation on this perfect day. (Twilight saw this confusingly)
  • (Twilight): D'aww, I never realised how cute I was when I was confused... And MAN, am I nostalgic to back when I was a unicorn.
  • Twilight: A fairy? But, I thought they can be only found in human-dominated worlds. (Celestia, Twilight and Spike pass through many school club booths)
  • Satyr: Hey, hey, hey, come join the Improv Club!
  • Twilight: A Satyr? (A giant janitor passed through with a makeshift mop)
  • Janitor: Coming through!
  • Twilight: Hey, that's a human giant!
  • (Twilight): (Sarcastically) Thank you, Captain Obvious Sparkle! (Some centaur boys were roughhousing)
  • Twilight: Centaurs? Celestia, what are these human creatures of legend doing in Equestria?
  • Spike: Yeah, I thought ponies haven't seen a human creature of legend for 10,000 years!
  • Twilight: Celestia, please explain!
  • (Twilight): Why did I asked twice? Good grief, I forgotten how weird this early-day writing was like!
  • Celestia: After Unicorns, Pegasus and Earth Ponies finally lived together in harmony, I happened upon an idea that many creatures of legend should come to Equestria and live in harmony with the ponies. This extraordinary college was built after the Unity of Creatures and Ponies and the forming of the Equestrian Council where gifted creatures of legend who want to study magic and become faithful students can come.
  • Spike: Well, I'll be a son of a fishstick!
  • (Twilight): (Sighs) I remember how Spike liked to say weird random things... I wish he went back to that.
  • Twilight: But, I thought the human creatures of legend vanished after... Him.
  • Spike: Him who?
  • Twilight: The Boogeyman who tried to cast Equestria into an eternal age of fear, but the princess stopped him in his tracks before Princess Luna vanished. Yet I have no idea what happened to her.
  • Celestia: They didn't vanish. They were just in hiding. They no longer have bad tidings with Equestrians. Still, their nations are moved around a lot since he tried to ruin everything.
  • Spike: Again, I'll be a son of a fishstick.
  • (Twilight): (Sighs) Still missed that.
  • Twilight: I still can't believe I'm finally here. With everything I dreamed of since I was a filly, the reality of this is sure to make me the best college student ever.
  • ???: PFFT! Yeah right, short-cake! (Young Taiku came in)
  • (Twilight): Oh, dear gosh, incoming past cringe!
  • Taiku: If anyone's gonna be the best of this concrete jungle, it's gonna be me. (Haiku came in)... Oh, hey bro! Just hackling some dumb newbie dreamer! We all know who's top-dog. Or in this case, top dragon.
  • Haku: Taiku, I know you're excited about college life, but don't get too cockey and let popularity get too your head, okay? And about that "Newbie Dreamer", that's the Princess's new faithful student, Twilight Sparkle.
  • Taiku: Oooh, the newbie has the same dream I have, huh? I bet she's not at the same magic level as me.
  • ???: Yo, Taiku my man!
  • Taiku: Hey, Dan.
  • Spike and Twilight: Dan? (Dan the Minotaur came in and greets Taiku with a probs and a handshake)
  • Dan: Great to see ya again, my Japanese-named Chinese dragon buddy! (Sees Twilight and Spike)... Uh, who's the new meat?
  • Taiku: More sad little dreamers, Dan. Sad, delusional dreamers. They don't look like they can even beat up Gary Skalesworth, that loser! No offense Celestia, but I think your choices in new personal students is starting to decline.
  • Dan: Noice! (Chuckles like an idiot) Good one! (Dan and Taiku high-fived until suddenly both Twilight and Spike felt an icy chill down there spines)
  • Spike: (While shivering) Burr, am I the only one getting cold?
  • Twilight: Is winter early?
  • Spike: Or maybe someone turned on the AC. (Edgar the Ice Dragon did an Olympic pole jump and landed in front of Taiku and Dan)
  • Edgar: Wazzup, Bros? (Taiku and Dan bro-fisted Edgar and each other)
  • Taiku: Hey, Edgar. How was gymnastics camp all summer?
  • Edgar: Cool as ice, mate. (Sees Twilight) New meats?
  • Taiku: Oh yeah, and they are literally, and metaphorically, NOT as cool as us, or you in a literal and metaphorical sense.
  • Edgar: Freshmen, huh? Better not let Russel see them or it's the down under dumps for them.
  • Spike: Uh, down under what?
  • Edgar: Trust me on this one, mate, you don't wanna find out. (Unkown to Taiku, something is playing with his tail)
  • Dan: Hey Taiku, what's going on with your tail?
  • Taiku: What do you mean? (Something invisible pulled his tail) OW! Hey! Who pulled my tail?
  • ???: Guilty. You're irresistible.
  • Spike: AHHHH!! THIS PLACE IS HAUNTED!!
  • ???: Whoa, take it easy, kid. This college is not haunted. (In a poof of smoke, Claud appeared)
  • Spike: BLAHHH!! DEMON!!
  • Edgar: Hey, you little dingbat, that ain't no underworld wanker!
  • Spike: It's not?
  • Sprite: Yeah, I'm a Sprite Fairy. The name's Claude.
  • Taiku: Yeah, very amusing with the tail thing, Claude. It's good to SEE you again! (He laughs)
  • Claude: Ah, that just never gets old, dude. (He turns invisible and tackled Taiku)
  • Taiku: Oh-ho-ho-ho, it's on! (He lashed his tail)
  • Claude: Missed me! (He tackled him again as he lashed many times) Missed me, missed me, missed me!
  • Taiku: Okay, you win, hold this rump roast! (He picks it up)
  • Claude: Why am I holding ru- (Fairies from the Nickelodeon universe came in mobbing him) AAAHHH!! CURSE YOU!! AHAHAHAHHH!!
  • ???: Claude, what's going on over there? (The fairies poofed away)
  • Claude: Great, here comes my sister.
  • Spike: Sister? (Molly magically appeared)
  • Molly: There you are, brother. Do you have any idea how much luggage I had to magically transport to our dorm?
  • Taiku: Hey, Molly.
  • Molly: Hey, Taiku, Ed, Danny, and... (She sees Twilight and Spike)... Russel's future swirly plots.
  • Twilight: Who, or what, is a swirly?
  • Edgar: Like I told your dragonmate, you don't wanna know. (A bright purple flying bus appeared from the clouds and lands at the entrance of the school)
  • Bus Driver: Ok, Magic University. Anyone getting off?
  • ???: We are.
  • Taiku: Awww, yeah! The rest of the gang's all here!
  • Spike: Gang?
  • Taiku: Oh, yeah. Wait till you meet them newbies. Oh, here comes one of them now. (Jimmy came off)
  • Jimmy: (Smelling the air) I love the smell of Magical College on the first day!
  • Taiku: Hey, Jimmy!
  • Spike: Exactly how many dragons are in your gang?
  • Taiku: Just four. Add me and Edgar and we're six. Plus, wait till you meet some of the magical creature girl members of our group!
  • Twilight: Well, they can't be more bizarre and surreal as this already, can they?
  • (Twilight): (Chuckles unamusingly) Get ready to stand corrected. (Murray came out and got stuck in the bus)
  • Twilight:... I stand corrected.
  • Murray: Hey, Jim! A little help?
  • Jimmy: (He groans while helping him out) You gotta skip a few desserts next time, Murray! (He struggles) Okay, whoever's behind, start pushing! 
  • Eddy and James: We're on it!
  • Jimmy: Ok, thanks, Eddy and James! You Ready? 1, 2, 3- (They pushed as Jimmy was tossed across the other side with Murray with a crash while Eddy and James came out
  • Murray: (He was seen on top of a comically-suffocating Jimmy) The college grounds feel squishier than I remember it.
  • Jimmy: (While still underneath Murray) Uh, Murray? You mind getting off of me?
  • Murray: Huh? The sidewalk talked to me?!? (Taiku scoffed and laughed uncontrollably as Sid came out of the bus and took to the air)
  • Sid: HERE COMES THE PARTY!!!!
  • Murray: I thought your name was Sid. (Taiku and the others just laughed)
  • Jimmy: Murray, seriously, AHHK, you mind getting of me, please?!?
  • Murray: (Finally sees that he's on top of Jimmy) Oh, sorry, Jimmy! (Gets off of him as he gasped comically for breath)
  • Taiku: Jim, Murry, Eddy, James, Sid! Come over here! (They did just that)
  • Jimmy: Hey, Taiku!
  • Murray: Hi, Taiky!
  • Eddy and James: Aloha, Taiku!
  • Sid: What's hanging, Dragon? (They all saw Twilight and Spike)
  • Jimmy: Oh, boy! New meats.
  • Murray: Russel's gonna mop the floor with them!
  • Eddy: Would not last one minute against his swirlies!
  • James: Nor against the armpit and noogie of fatal humiliation.
  • Sid: Probably would not last one day without an encounter from Russel.... And smelling like poo water! (Jimmy, Murray, Eddy and James, and Sid laughed)
  • ???: Ok, guys, lay off the newbies, will ya?
  • Taiku: Oh, there you are, Gwen. (Gwen the Goth Harpy came in)
  • Gwen: Just because they're going to inevitably smell like poo water for the following weeks, doesn't mean we should rub it in their faces.
  • Jimmy: You're right, Gwen. We didn't mean to rub everything in their faces about Russel.
  • Murray: We were just having some harmless fun, that's all. (Amy the Cheerleading Centaur came)
  • Gwen: Hey, Amy. We're over here!
  • Taiku: Look who's back from cheerleading camp.
  • Amy: Hey guys! (Sees Twilight and Spike) Uh-oh, Russel's new chew-toys. Everyone like, take a long good look before they make themselves scarce.
  • Gwen: Easy, Amy, those two may be Russel's new victims but these two are not bad.
  • Amy: (Seeing Spike) Oh, my gosh. Aren't you the cutest thing ever? It's too bad Russel's gonna mess you up.
  • Spike: I don't think I wanna be here anymore.
  • Gwen: Don't be scared, kid! Russel can't do anything to you and your unicorn friend while you're safe under Alan, Phil and Stu's roof. (A crash and clatter was heard)... Speak of the devil.
  • ???: AHH, PHIL, YA BLEEDING IDIOT!! (Stu, Alan, and Phil came in)
  • Stu: Look what'chya did, ya bloody troll!! Ya broke the University trophies!
  • Gwen:... Maaaybe I spoke too soon.
  • James: GAHOI, YA THINK?!?
  • Twilight: Uh, might I ask, who's Russel? (A scream was heard as Gary was running from Russel)
  • Gwen: THAT'S Russel! That's what karma does to you when you ask a stupid question, new meat.
  • Spike: WHOA, WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS FACE?!
  • Gwen:... He doesn't wanna talk about it.
  • Russel: COME BACK HERE, GARY, YOU WUSS!
  • Twilight: Oh, no! Someone has to help that dragon!
  • Goblin: Don't worry, girl. We're on it! Stu, Phil, you know the drill!
  • Taiku: Don't bother, guys! Just get the camera ready so we can go online later and post it on YouTube while adding a (Mimics falling noise) to his punch-fly, along with a (Mimics a splat noise), then add a little more laughs with a 'Moiwah-moiwah-moiwah-moiwaaaah'!
  • Sid: HELL YEAH!
  • Edgar: I'M ALL FOR THAT! (They high-fived)
  • (Twilight):... I suddenly feel like that's kinda funny, and that's VERY concerning.
  • Twilight: WHAT?!? Your gonna let that poor kid get tortured? (Taiku laughs)
  • Taiku: Kid, I know you're new here, but trust me, Gary's anything but a poor kid! He's the biggest scumbag to ever scumbagged the school.
  • Twilight: Oh, you know what? YOU'RE AWFUL! (She teleports Gary away from Russel, as he ends up slipping head-first into garbage)
  • Gary: (He found himself next to Twilight) NO, NO, I DON'T WANNA SHOWER AGAIN!!! I JUST TOOK ONE TODAY!!!
  • Twilight: Are you okay?
  • Gary: (He noticed where he was) What in the-how in the-who-wha?
  • Taiku: (He and the others looked at Twilight with disgust)
  • Edgar: Ahh, struth! She saved the weasel! the dirty sheila!
  • Gwen: You know what? Russel should totally punish you dweebs.
  • Twilight: Well, too bad! This innocent soul doesn't deserve any abuse, from any of you, and neither do Spike and I. You should all be ashamed for even denying him help! I don't know what made you this way, but after what it resulted in, I couldn't care less! Come, Mr. Gary, we shouldn't be around these lowlifes! (Leaves as she magically drags away a confused Gary)
  • Gary: Uh... Did I miss something?
  • Alan:... Yeeeah, they're right, Taiku! We don't just shy away from our jobs because of something so childish! Me and Stu here learned that the had way with Phil when we were upset at him for doing his job. I suggest you do the same, because someday, you could wind up all alone, and you'll have nobody to blame but yourself.
  • Taiku: (Dubbed as Kuzco) Thanks for that, I'll log that away!
  • Alan: Anyways, Phil, Stu and I better get back to doing a rain-check on the University Welcoming Ceremony in 3 hours. And, uh, sorry about the trophy case being wrecked by Phil's stupidity, your majesty.
  • Celestia: It's alright, really. It's nothing that hadn't happened before.
  • Taiku: I can't believe that weasel-lover is your latest Student, Princess C! She's showing compassion to that cockroach in dragon's skin.
  • Haku: Watch your mouth, Taiku!
  • Celestia: No, Haku, its alright. Taiku is going to need time to get to know Twilight more.
  • Taiku: Anyway, never mind them. There's just four of our group left unpresent.
  • (Twilight):... DID WE REALLY HAVE TO BRING THIS BACK?!? I feel like hating Taiku again after seeing this. I swear to Celestia, if this is going EXACTLY where I think it is, I'm gonna-

Later...

  • (Twilight): SCREEEEAAAAAMMM!! (She was at her feared moment)
  • Gary: NO, NO! I JUST HAD A SHOWER THIS MORNING!!
  • Taiku: Take care of that now-expelled piece of trash, Russel!
  • Gary: NO! NO! TWILIGHT, HELP ME! PLEASE!!
  • Gwen: Looks like Twily's not your friend anymore. Care to tell him?
  • Gary: WHAT?! TWILY, PLEASE! WE HAD FUN TOGETHER! I TOOK YOU TO CANDY LAND! PLEASE! HELP ME! REMEMBER THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE?!?
  • Twilight: After what Eagle Beak put me and Spike through? Forget it. Taiku and his friends were really right about you.
  • Gary: TWILY, (He was crying hysterically) PLE-HEE-HEE-HEEEASE! IT WASN'T MY IDEA TO HAVE YOU IN THAT ICE WORLD! IT ALL HAPPENED TOO SUDDEN! THIS WHOLE THING IS EAGLE-BEAK'S FAULT!! (Meanwhile, Alice was busy mooning her flank at a now-bald Clare Buckington who was handcuffed behind her back by the royal guard while they wait for Russel to be finished with Gary as Clare screamed in pure rage)
  • Gary: TWILY, PLEASE!! I CONSIDERED YOU MY ONE TRUE FRIEND!
  • Twilight: Well, not anymore, Gary! (Taiku, his friends and Spike all came up to her) Because I have alot of TRUE friends now!
  • Gary: NO! TWILY! PLEASE, NOOOOOOOO! I DON'T DESERVE THIS!!
  • Twilight: Do your thing, Russel!
  • Russel: With pleasure, Twily! You and Spike are Russel's friends now. Time to take out the trash!
  • Gary: TWILY, PLEASE! NO! NO! PLEASE NO-NONONONONONONONONONONONONONO! (Visiting Twilight couldn't help but sob and cover herself with her wings as Russel dumps Gary into the trash while the royal guard picks him up and hand-cuffs him)
  • Eagle Beak: (He was seen behaving and laughing like a lunatic, and looks stupidly as he, Gary and Clare were taken away by the royal guards) But my extreme measure plan was perfect! (Cackles) Absoulty foolproof, really! (He cackled) I'm the King!
  • Bunnymund: (He rolled his eyes) Mate, what you've pulled hasn't made you a very good King of Equestria because of few reasons. 1: You're a very treacherous, insane, despicable griffin, 2: You're a big disgrace to Celestia's era of friendship and harmony and for what? Countering the return of Nightmare Moon, in your own power-crazed way, 3: You've endangered the lives of countless ponies and others. 4: Thanks to your big mistake of sending Celestia and the rest to our world, Taiku, Sparkle and Spike and Taiku have become the best friends Equestria has ever seen and 5: You used that centaur brat, her assisstant and too many monsters and warriors made out of candy to do all your dirty work, mate. (They were carried away as Gary looked with sadness as Past Twilight looked away with no concern)
  • Gary: Twily... Twily, I thought we had something special! All the good times we had... (He holds a photobooth photo of Twilight and Gary at a carnival that they visited off-camera)... I even... Fell in love with you... (Gary became silent as he was carried away)
  • (Twilight):... (She cried hysterically)... THIS IS NOT HEALING ME!!! THIS IS MENTAL TORMENT!!! (Suddenly, the entire scene literally rewinded)... Wait... What- *Sniff*... What's this?
  • Gary: NO, NO! I JUST HAD A SHOWER THIS MORNING!!
  • Taiku: Take care of that now-expelled piece of trash, Russel!
  • Twilight: WAIT!... (Everyone, including the Future Twilight, was surprised)
  • Taiku: (He remembered what they went through and knew exactly what is about to go down)... Let him off with a warning, Russ. I think after our little ice-capades with Cold Heart, I think we need to chill, no second pun intended.
  • Russel: Uhhh... Sure thing! (He drops Gary)
  • Gary:... Twi, did, did you just... Spare me, after all this madness?
  • Twilight:... I, had a lot of reasons to believe that all you really needed was a real friend. A friend that could've prevented you from falling into Eagle-Beak and Clare's hands.
  • Gary:... I, figured that with what the Professor did, you wouldn't forgive me for the crap I was involved with.
  • Twilight:... I have learned a lot... In more ways than one for some reason... I feel somewhat enlightened since my mission against Cold Heart. (As Future Twilight watched with teary eyes)... Something deep within me, is telling me that I will never forgive myself if I let you suffer. I... I just wanna say... You helped me get this far. You taught me a lot. If I let my hate get the better of me... I don't think there'd be any easy way to go back.... And I just wanna say... Thank you! (She kisses him)
  • Gary:... (He hugged her) OH, THANK YOU!!! I... I WANTED TO TELL YOU... I LOVE YOU!!!
  • Everyone Except Future Twilight: WHAT?!?
  • Taiku:... Okay, THAT MUCH, I didn't expect!
  • Gary: You seemed to be like me in so many ways!... So... I... I've been wanting to ask something since Eagle banished you... (She got on his knees and got a hoof-worn ring)... Will you marry me? (Everyone was surprised)
  • Spike: Oh my gosh!
  • Twilight: (She was touched and started sobbing)... I... I... Gary... This feels a little TOO soon!
  • Gary:... Are you surprised?
  • Twilight:... I... Look, Gary, I'm... I'm grateful you feel this way about me. It's UNBELIEVABLY sweet! You just... Just made my heart skip a beat for a moment. This is something too soon for somepony my age. I... I'm not ready to have a husband yet. I... I hope you understand.
  • Gary:... Well... I understand! Thank you!
  • Twilight:... (The two hugged crying in each other's shoulders)...
  • (Twilight):... (She sobbed to herself again)... This... This is just as hurtful... But in a good way!... I... Thank you, Sunset! The reality you gave me... Couldn't have made me feel more healed than ever. (The whole thing shifted to a familiar castle)... Is... Is this...
  • Nightmare Moon: (She was seen seemingly destroying the Elements of Harmony)...
  • (Twilight):... By Celestia! It is! This was back when I first fought Nightmare Moon!
  • Nightmare Moon: (Cackles) You little foal! Thinking you could defeat me? Now you will never see your princess, or your sun! The night will last, FOREVER! (Cackles)
  • Pinkie Pie: Don't worry Twilight, we're here!
  • Applejack: Don't worry, we'll be there!
  • Twilight:... (She gasps)... You think you can destroy The Elements of Harmony just like that? Well, you're wrong, because the spirits of The Elements of Harmony are right here.
  • Nightmare Moon: What?
  • Twilight: (As the vision was seen in Future Twilight's eyes)... Applejack, who reassured me when I was in doubt, represents the spirit of... HONESTY!
  • (Twilight): (She was excited, and even noticed Mare-Zan watching from afar as she saw another vision)
  • Twilight: Fluttershy, who tamed the manticore with her compassion, represents the spirit of... KINDNESS!
  • (Twilight): (She was starting to get teary eyes again as she saw another vision)
  • Twilight: Pinkie Pie, who banished fear by giggling in the face of danger, represents the spirit of... LAUGHTER!
  • (Twilight): (She giggled a bit)... Why did I do that?
  • Twilight: (As Future Twilight saw another vision)... Rarity, who calmed a sorrowful serpent with a meaningful gift represents the spirit of... GENEROSITY!
  • (Twilight): (She was sobbing again)... And why am I crying a lot? (She saw the final vision)...
  • Twilight: And Rainbow Dash, who could not abandon her friends for her own heart's desire represents the spirit of... LOYALTY!
  • (Twilight): (She was getting excited again as she wiped her tears away)...
  • Twilight: The spirits of these five ponies got us through every challenge you threw at us
  • Nightmare Moon: You still don't have the sixth Element! The spark didn't work!
  • Twilight Sparkle: But it did! A different kind of spark. I felt it the very moment I realized how happy I was to hear you, to see you, how much I cared about you. The spark ignited inside me when I realized that you all... are my friends! (The elements started to shine as Future Twilight, and the witness Mare-Zan, were amazed by the spectacle)... You see, Nightmare Moon, when those Elements are ignited by the... The spark, that resides in the heart of us all, it creates the sixth element: the element of... MAGIC! (The six gained their old defensive power trinkets)
  • (Twilight):... DO IT!
  • Nightmare Moon: (The Rainbow took form and attacked Nightmare Moon) Nooo! NOOOOOOOOOO! (She was reverted slowly back to Luna, as the past Mane Six were distracted, Future Twilight was focused on Luna, as she walked to her and saw the raw emotion in her as she was sobbing to herself when seeing pure and bad visions upon being blasted by the Elements, and Future Twilight started to place her hoof on her even though she couldn't feel it)
  • (Twilight):... I don't blame you for feeling unimportant, Luna!... I... I know how it feels!... But you taught me a valuable lesson... You taught me that friendship is or ultimate superpower for a reason.... I wish you could hear me right now.
  • Luna: ("I wish you could hear me right now.")... (She sobbed)...
  • (Twilight):... Well, I don't know if you can given your abilities, but... Thank you! You made me the hero, and the princess everypony can count on. Even... Even Tempest!

Twilight's Subconscious Present

  • Twilight: (She was brought to a familiar fog-driven shore)... Wh... What is this? (She noticed the wet Mane Six following their banishment from Seaquestria surfacing and crawling onto shore)... Oh, no!
  • Applejack: What were you thinking?!
  • (Twilight): Uh, Miss Charwoman, I would like to skip this part please!
  • Applejack: I mean, stealin' their pearl?!
  • (Twilight): CHARWOMAN?!?
  • Twilight: (Sighs) It was the only way to save Equestria!
  • Pinkie: Except it WASN'T! The Queen was gonna say yes! We did what you told us and that's what made them realize we were ponies worth saving!... (Gasps)... Unless, you didn't really WANT us to show her the best time ever! YOU JUST WANTED US TO DISTRACT HER!!! (The other 4 gasped at the realization)
  • (Twilight): Uh, Charwoman, this is the exact OPPOSITE of enlightenment!!! THIS IS WHY I'M IN THIS CRISIS TO BEGIN WITH!!!
  • Twilight: I never would've done it, but this ISN'T Equestria! We can't just dance around with con artists, make Rainbooms in the sky and expect everything to work out! It's NOT enough! (As Future Twilight looked in horror at what she was saying) WE are NOT enough!
  • Pinkie: No, Twilight! WE stuck together! WE were gonna get the help we needed! The only thing that stopped us, WAS YOU!
  • (Twilight): I, I'M SORRY!!! I WASN'T THINKING STRAIGHT!!! WE WERE AT A LOW TIME-SCALE, I WAS SCARED FOR MY HOME, AND-
  • Twilight: Well, I'M DOING THE BEST I CAN! It's all on ME! I'M the one Tempest wants! I'M the last princess!
  • Pinkie: You're ALSO the one who doesn't trust her friends!
  • (Twilight): NO, NO, NO, DON'T SAY IT! I SWEAR TO ALL THAT IS HOLY TO CELESTIA, DON'T SAY IT-
  • Twilight: WELL, MAYBE I WOULD'VE BEEN BETTER OFF WITHOUT FRIENDS LIKE YOU!! (Pinkie gasps as the words echoed in Future Twilight's mind as her heartbeats were heard, and she watched as Pinkie sulked in sadness and left Twilight to regret what she said)... Pinkie... I-
  • Pinkie: *Sniff*... I just can't talk to you right now! (The others left either upset or appalled at Twilight for her words, and left Twilight and a devastated Spike to separate)
  • (Twilight):... (She plopped to the ground crying)... WHY, CHARWOMAN?!? WHY?!? WHAT PURPOSE DOES THIS SERVE?!? WHY WOULD YOU REINTRODUCE ME TO MY PAIN?!? (Cries) I DIDN'T THINK I'D EVER SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO MY FRIENDS!!!... IT... IT'S NOT LIKE ME!!!... I HURT THEM!! I ALMOST DESTROYED THEM!!!... (She cried and didn't realize until later that the scenery went back to the Mane 5 following those events)...
  • ???: Well, that shot us in the hearts! (Future Twilight noticed the ponies resting themselves to where they were when Spike warned them of Twilight's capture as Pinkie sobbed to herself)
  • Rarity: Who does she think she is?!? She was in this her own way? She doesn't TRUST us? What nerve does she have to say something like that to the ones who got her this far to begin with?
  • Applejack: I know! That was just uncalled for! We were doing things peacefully and diplomatically, and she just resorts to THEFT?!? DEAR CELESTIA, THAT'S PATRICK LEVELS OF STUPID!!
  • Fluttershy: (She was sobbing in a corner with Pinkie)... I can't believe... She said that!
  • Pinkie: WHY?!? WHY WOULD SHE SAY THAT?!?
  • (Twilight):... I... I'm so sorry!
  • Applejack: I mean, I don't know what she's so houey about! We've saved Equestria countless times, why is THIS what gets her so uppity, that she resorts to stealing their greatest power? She'd know better than that!
  • Rainbow Dash:... You know... When I think about it... It makes sense why she'd snap at us like that!
  • All 4: WHAT?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: Well, you saw her watch as the princesses, WHICH I MAY REMIND YOU GUYS, are her godmother, godaunt, AND sister-in-law and best babysitter, turned to stone without much of a fight, AND was spared of the same fate by my adopted sister Derpy as Canterlot was taken with not very much effort! Now let's recap what OUR decisions have done since she had to cope with that: We end up stranded in a desert and found Klugetown, ONLY to end up meeting a con artist who sold us out to some dinkie little mob boss, as TWILIGHT BROUGHT UP THE LIKELY FACT, thus risking the endangerment of the hippogriffs when Tempest showed up! NOT TO MENTION WHILE LIFTING THE SPIRITS OF AWESOME PARROT PIRATES, I GAVE AWAY OUR POSITION TO TEMPEST LIKE A DUMBASS BY MAKING A SONIC RAINBOOM, AND LED TO THEIR SHIP BEING TORN DOWN, LEAVING US TO NEARLY FALL TO OUR DEATHS, GIVE OR TAKE A FLYING MEMBER, AND LIKELY LEAD TO THEIR DEATHS!!! HAVE I LEFT ANYTHING OUT?!?
  • Applejack: Well, Pinkie DID attract unneeded attention from those desperate folk of Kludgetown without listening to Twi, so yeah, we didn't take the mission OR Twilight's feelings somewhat seriously, or fully seriously! So... Maybe we SHOULD'VE talked out our adventure plan after we fell off that waterfall to avoid this mess!
  • Rainbow Dash: THANK YOU! I mean, come on! This was the same pony that thought Taiku was a creep, Gary was an abused dork, blindly trusted an evil Jafar look-alike, and thought she could fight Pitch-Freaking-Black on her own! She was also the same pony that once went insane trying not to disappoint Celestia by causing a riot over an old doll, all because she was afraid of being tossed back to magic kindergarten, as if Celestia would SERIOUSLY stoop to such a silly level, AND tried to use Tony to prevent Spyro from being an idiot about things! How, can we NOT, expect Twilight to react like that after all the bulls*** she had to put up with? FOR CELESTIA'S SAKE, THAT FESTIVAL WAS MEANT TO HELP HER AND STARLIGHT FORGET ABOUT SOME DRUNKEN HOMOSEXUAL SLIP-UP WHEN DEALING WITH CHRYSALIS' CRAZY MOTHER! Now, I can pardon Novo because she doesn't exactly KNOW Twilight, but US?!? WE KNOW TWILIGHT WELL ENOUGH THAT SHE CAN EASILY, EASILY BE VERY CRAZY!! Crazy, about saving Equestria! I mean, yeah, I know, this is like, what, the 100th or so time it was threatened? I know we were probably so desensitized to this mess that even Twilight would think of us as jokes, but... After two mistakes, three if you count Pinkie's 'HEY, COME DO WHAT'CHA WANT WITH US' incident, why SHOULD she trust us?
  • Pinkie:... (She wiped away tears)... Yeah... Why didn't I just talk it out with Twilight before she tried to steal the pearl? I should've known she wasn't in the mood for our way of thinking since this whole mess started.
  • Applejack: Yeah! I mean, she said out of nowhere we were right, RIGHT after she looked too curious about the pearl, AND told us to negotiate peacefully, AND SHE WASN'T ANYWHERE WITH US! If that could've told us she wasn't thinking straight, I sure as heck dunno WHAT would!
  • Rainbow Dash: EXACTLY! The thing with her is..... She saw Celestia, Luna, and Cadance turned into coal by that Tempest bitch! Celestia and Cadance especially are like, her extra mother and the sister she never gotten. MY ADOPTED SISTER DERPY SAVED TWILIGHT FROM BEING TURNED TO COAL BY TAKING THE HIT OF THAT OBSIDIAN ORB!!!... It was hurtful to watch! How would any of you would act, if say, like for you Applejack, if Granny Smith, Big Mac, and/or even Applebloom were in that position?
  • Applejack:... I... I guess I would've made a similar mistake if I was conflicted on whether or not I couldn't trust my own friends.
  • Rainbow Dash: And Rarity? What if Sweetie Belle or that Trenderhoof guy was in the same problem? Would YOU have done the same?
  • Rarity:... I don't know if I would resort to theft as the Element of Generosity, but I would've done something that would've had as equal a harmful impact.
  • Rainbow Dash: Fluttershy? If your pets were in trouble, or say Discord was corrupted by Tempest or petrified AGAIN by her, or any of your cottage friends were in the same s***, would it be ANY different for you? Heck, you kinda acted the same way when Zecora was sick!
  • Fluttershy: Oh, trust me, I wouldn't do something like that, as stealing is NOT in my nature. But if it meant saving everything I ever loved, I wouldn't be THIS stupid! I would've just persisted with asking for help, and ended up doing something just as destructive like turning Skystar against her. If it meant being banished, or going through a fate worse than Swamp Fever, such as that horrific and frightening Ocean Fever that sea beings go through in this world, then it would be worth it.
  • Rainbow Dash: And last but not leas, Pinkie? (Pinkie looked at her with teary red eyes)... If your entire family was in the same problem, or if it was Cranky, Cheese Sandwich, The Cakes, And, PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE ELSE YOU REALLY LIKED?! HOW WOULD YOU TAKE THIS WHOLE SCENARIO?!?
  • Pinkie: Well... I definitely wouldn't laugh it off so easily, but- *Sniff*, But like I said, I would've talked Twilight out of all her resentment and out of her ill-advised move, and she would've did the same thing we did, and none of this would've happened.
  • Rainbow Dash: EXACTLY! And ME?!? I say, I wouldn't stand for it if the Wonderbolts were in the same s***, along with Scootaloo! If I was THIS scared and desperate for help and someone like Novo said no just like that with no second thoughts... THEN I WOULD SAY 'F*** YOU, NOVO' AND KICK HER FISH ASS WITH THAT DEUS EX MACHINA OF A PEARL AND TEACH HER A LESSON ABOUT BEING A GUTLESS COWARD! LET'S FACE IT EVERYPONY, THIS IS ALL HER FAULT! NOVO'S THE ONE WHO LET HERSELF ALMOST BE RID OF THAT PEARL, AND ALL BECAUSE SHE'S NOTHING MORE, THEN A BIG FAT STUPID B-
  • Pinkie: RAINBOW DASH, NO!!! THINK ABOUT OUR CHILD-FRIENDLY IMAGE, EVEN WHEN WE'RE CURRENTLY OFF-CAMERA!!
  • (Twilight): Rainbow's seriously not going to-
  • Rainbow Dash: WEEEEEEEEE-
  • Pinkie: RAINBOW, DON'T!
  • Rainbow Dash:... WEEEEEEEEEEE-
  • Pinkie: PLEASE, DON'T, IT'S NOT GONNA MAKE IT BETTER DOING THAT!
  • Rainbow Dash: ALRIGHT, FINE!
  • (Twilight)/Pinkie:... WHEW!
  • (Twilight): Thank the merciful Alicorn Gods!
  • Pinkie: I always thought she could keep her co- (Rainbow Dash immediately started to sing this as back-up singing seashore life joined in, as Novo came in near the end of the song)
Kyle's Mom Is A Big Fat Bitch - Cartman - Lyrics

Kyle's Mom Is A Big Fat Bitch - Cartman - Lyrics

  • (Twilight): (In the beginning part of the song)... I AM GONNA STRANGLE RAINBOW FOR THIS!!... (When Novo came in, gasping with the others)... That is, if SHE doesn't strangle her first! (The 4 stared in shock of Rainbow Dash as she doesn't realised that Novo was behind her the entire time as she finished the song and looked raging mad)
  • Rainbow Dash:... What?... (Looks behind her)... (Scared) Aw, Sweet Celestia!... (Chuckles)... Don't you just hate hearing things you weren't supposed to hear... (Gulp)...Your highness?
  • Novo:... And here I thought changing my mind at the last minute would make me feel welcome! Well you know what? I am gonna have yall' imprisoned for thi- (A clang was heard as Novo suddenly made a stupid face as she looked like she was hit)... (Dazed) Night-night, Ma! When I grow up, I wanna be like you! (Plops to the ground)...
  • Skystar: (She had hit her in the back of the head with a piece of metal)... (Sighs)... Sorry mother, BUT, PARDON MY FRENCH, EVEN I GET TIRED OF YOU BEING AN OVERPROTECTIVE BITCH!!... (Sighs)... Girls... I... I'm sorry if she gave you a hard time. I understand why you did what you did. I'll... I'll... Just go take mother to bed, and I'll think about what I can do to make things work later. (Drags Novo back into the sea)
  • Applejack:... Well, if it was already unlikely that Novo would help us again over Twilight's stupidity, Rainbow made it worse... But... I see what you mean! (Sighs)... What have we done?...
  • Rarity:... (She cries out loud and in a comically-dramatic fashion) OHHH, TWIILIIIIIGHT, COOOOME BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HAAAAAAACK!!! (She cries like a drama queen, and the four others started to cry, except Applejack who cries on the inside)
  • (Twilight): NO! GIRLS, WAIT!! I'M RIGHT HERE!! (The setting changes as it shifted to Seaquestria) WHOA!... Well, good thing that, even if I didn't have the seapony form, this is a subconscious simulation! (Skystar rested her unconscious mother on the bed as she woke up)
  • Skystar:... Sorry, mom, but I had to ensure you didn't make a scene! It didn't look like you were gonna tolerate those poor souls' antics well.
  • Novo:... (Sighs)... You may be right! Let 'em act however they wish! They don't belong here anyway! It's... It's just best for our hippogriff brethren that we stay here!
  • Skystar:... (Sighs)... I can't keep this hidden any longer! Mother... I brought them here because... I felt they were in danger. I could read it all in their eyes when I looked into them when I brought them into the whirlpool. For some reason, I find it easier to see the pain and fear in them through what they went through when they actually show it through things like drowning, so that's why I waited for them to either find a solution to being without air, or assume the worst by seeing they didn't have one. And when they drowned... It was too clear that the latter was true, and they couldn't do it themselves, and I thought that by giving them they air support they needed and bringing them here, I'd get them, and us, somewhere.
  • Novo:... Why?
  • Skystar:... (Sighs) BECAUSE I'M BORED! I'M BORED OF BEING HERE! I can't stand living in this isolated seapony colony anymore! All I had were Shelly and Sheldon to keep me company... AND THEY'RE JUST CLAMS! (To Shelly and Sheldon) No offense! (Novo sighed unamusingly) I mean... Don't you feel an EENTSY-TEENSY BIT BORED of being here?
  • Novo:... (Sighs)... You think I LIKE hiding, Sky? You think I ENJOY looking like some week-kneed coward? If your aunt were alive, she wouldn't've viewed this well, and would've made it harder for me, because you KNOW how she got when it came to makin' us 'proactive'. You SAW the looks on my subjects' faces after the Alicorn called us cowards! I realized I WAS acting like a coward! I HAD to make it up to 'em... THEN THE RAINBOW PONY INSULTED ME!!!... Granted, I could assume that the Rainbow one's merely a notorious hothead, BUT STILL! The other ones didn't exactly stop her, even when they didn't approve of her words! I was just worried about what I'd see if we were to come onto land cuz... When I put my trust in 'em and they ended up trying to distract us to get the Pearl... I thought they were badly influenced by the Storm King like most of the world was thanks to his family! Remember what happened last time we trusted 'Cherry' and 'Mort' and they tried to steal the pearl as well?
  • Skystar: Yes, but that doesn't mean ALL strangers are evil! You said after Twilight got caught that it was why we never brought strangers here, as if ALL strangers were evil!
  • Novo: I was just sayin' to be careful when interacting with strangers. That said, what you said about 'em being scared is not unapparent. When I snapped at them, they DID look like I was gonna sentence 'em to death for their theft by drowning, but because that ain't the seapony way, and it ain't in my nature to leave people to drown since you know I hate to see suffering and danger, especially considering the impact left by my sister... I wanted us to be more passive-aggressive, but she wanted them to be just aggressive, and when Storm King came... I lost all hope.
  • Skystar: But those ponies were NOT bad strangers! Their scared asphyxiated eyes told me they were scared they couldn't see their loved ones and life again, besides the situation they were already in. I sensed no darkness in their hearts! They were as scared as we were. I hoped that by showing that fear to you, you'd feel as if you were looking in a mirror.
  • Novo: Well, why didn't you say that sooner?
  • Skystar: You were just too distracted by the fact I brought them here, that I never had the chance, and I ended up not saying the right words. We HAVE to help them, Mom! Maricolous wouldn't want this to come out of her creations! Heck, ABYSSWISH wouldn't want this from her protégé! She wanted you to be courteous! Hiding in isolation, denying strangers entrance in our home, and having nothing exciting to do is not what she had in mind for you! You didn't look at their fear because your own fears got the better of you. They came all this way for nothing thanks to you. You can't expect them to not do what they did after you show little to no concern like that! Even if you were opening up... Twilight was just too blinded to think clearly! I mean, she was an Alicorn, so it's possible she's royalty!
  • Novo: Not all royalty is flawless, daughter! I'm looking at an example right now!
  • Swellsea: OOOH, BURN!
  • Novo: SWELLSEA, YOU AIN'T HELPING!
  • Swellsea: Sorry!
  • Skystar:... Well, yeah, that's kinda my point! She had a LOT to learn! Heck... I overheard them arguing and the one who tried to take the Pearl snapped that it was all to save her home! Her friends had a different and more peaceful idea than what SHE was suggesting, and she thought they were acting like children for being distracted by the world, and for 'dancing with con artists and making Rainbooms in the sky and expecting everything to work out'! Maybe that meant they made two mistakes, but regardless, we STILL owe them for what they gave us, and we can't let their mistakes give us an excuse to not be grateful! We HAVE to do something!
  • Novo: I said we let them be, Skystar!
  • Skystar: BUT MOM-
  • Novo: NO 'BUTS'!... (Sighs)... Look, I'm sorry if I'm not bein' reasonable here, but I'm only doing what's best for our people! Our allies in the seaponies have been protecting us since the loss of Hippogrifia! I have to follow my mentor's hoofsteps, or lack there of given she was a seapony, and especially keep her daughter who rescued me from drowning from being in ANY harm! I still miss Abysswish since Storm King cursed her into being turned into sea foam.... (Sighs) Heck, I doubt Swellsea here is faring well after that. I... I know this is far-fetched, daughter, but I'm trying to find a solution! I want us to get out of here as much as you do because that IS what Abysswish would want out of me, and perhaps I can think about calling them to Basalt Beaches later to apologize, but until then, we need to wait until we can be sure it's safe.
  • Skystar: BUT MOOOOOM-
  • Novo: I SAID NO 'BUTS'! Go to your room! (Skystar sighed)...
  • (Twilight):... (Sighs as the setting changed to the wreck of Celaeno's ship)... Now what?
  • Celaeno: (She was on a shore without her hat staring depressingly at the beyond as her crew came up bruised)
  • Mullet:... Captain?... You feeling alright? (He returned her hat)
  • Celaeno: I'm fine! (She dusts her hat and put it back on)...
  • Lix Splitter: WHAT WERE WE THINKING?!? We should've just stuck to Storm King's orders! I KNEW those ponies were trouble!
  • Boyle: NOW LOOK WHERE THEY GOT US!!!
  • Murdock: BAWWWK!!
  • Lix Splitter: (As Celaeno looked in disappointment and then determination) I mean, come on, they were clearly keeping us from throwing their tattooed flanks overboard! And NOW look where we are!
  • Mullet: WHY?!? ALL MY DOLLIES WERE IN THERE! (Everyone except Celaeno was confused)... You never heard that!
  • Celaeno: You know what?... I DON'T CARE!... I'm sick of following what some dumb Storm King wants us to do! Rainbow Dash was right! Storm King turned us into lame carrier pigeons! That was NOT us! I don't care what happened! I say we go rescue those ponies as thanks for showing us how bored I was for feeling like I couldn't be awesome again!
  • Lix Splitter: How do we do that?
  • Celaeno: How, are you kidding? You learn ANYTHING being a pirate? They already gave us their location! They left a smoke path from the cloud in the sky leading to Mount Aris, so THAT's where they went!
  • Mullet: Wait, you mean, that hippogriff colony?
  • Celaeno: YES! And that's where we're going!
  • Boyle: And how do we get there? We're CLEARLY not aquatic in the least!
  • Celaeno: Well, we'll use what we can to make another boat! I mean, they told us what to do! They thought we couldn't be motivated to stand up to them again! It's THESE ponies who told us that there was nothing stopping us! Even if they DID lead enemies to our ship, we showed them what we could do, and they still saved us from Storm King's wrath! I LOVED BEING A PIRATE! And they sucked all the joy out of it like they owned the fricking ship! And you know? For not thinking about this sooner... I'm a little bit angry! Correction, I'm REALLY angry! And I don't think I'm the only one, am I? I mean, come on! WE'RE BIRDS! BIRDS DESCENDED FROM DINOSAURS! WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE NICE! (Murdock roared like a T-Rex)... Yeah, uh... Point made! Now, whose angry? Who wants to get back at Storm King for making us look like sticks in the mud? (The four got determined) We're not gonna let him define who we are anymore! We're getting those ponies back! NOW, I DON'T NEED ANY PRETTY BIRDS HERE! AIN'T GONNA HELP US! NO, I NEED SOME ANGRY, FLOCKING, BIRDS! SO, WHO'S WITH ME?!? WHO WANTS TO BE AWESOME AGAIN?!? (They cheered and instrumentals of 'Time To Be Awesome' were heard as a montage of them building a makeshift boat out of the wreckage of their ship) GET EVERYTHING THAT FLOATS! (They continued) WITH EVERY SINGLE FEATHER OF MY BEING, I AM NOT GOING TO LET THESE PONIES OR THEIR FRIENDS, OR ANY OTHERS THEY MAKE ON THIS LITTLE ADVENTURE, GO UNAVENGED! (They finally built the boat and sailed off)... Not bad for a bunch of birds, huh? (They sung their own revised reprise of their song as they moved onward, Future Twilight being touched by their boost of confidence) NOW COME ON, LET'S SHOW THOSE LITTLE PONIES HOW IT'S DONE... AGAIN!
  • (Twilight):... Go get 'em, Celaeno! (The setting changed to Klugetown)... Oh, yeah, it's Capper's turn! (Capper was seen at the mercy of Verko, who was still somewhat scorched after his confrontation with Tempest, and two big crocodile thugs)
  • Verko: (He coughs smoke) Capper, I, am beyond, DISAPPOINTED!! Not ONLY did you lose the ponies you were selling to me, but you DIDN'T TAKE THE TIME TO DO ANYTHING BUT GET CAPTURED!! YOU ARE SUCH A USELESS CON ARTIST, JUST LIKE MENDAX AND HIS TATTLE-TALE SCORPION!!!
  • Capper: Look, Verk, I-
  • Verko: I TOLD YOU NOT TO CALL ME THAT! (The croc thugs cracked their knuckles)
  • Capper: Verko, I-I-I'll-I'll find some other way to repay you, I-
  • Verko: TOO LATE FOR THAT, YOU WASTE OF FUR!! YOU HAD TOO MANY CHANCES, AND YOU GET NO MORE! GET READY TO JOIN CHUMMER IN THE BIG YARN BALL IN THE SKY!! SAY HELLO TO MY NEW THUGS, JAVA AND JAVA!! (Twilight and Capper laughed as the two got angry) OH, now you've done it! They don't like it when they get mocked for having the same name!
  • Capper:... Oh, s***, I can't believe I fell for that! (The Thugs punched their fists together chuckling angrily) Oh come on, Verko, be reasonable here! I-I-no-no-no-easy with the fists boys- (He wimply yelps with a background cat yell as the two thugs get close until a figure swooped in and pounced onto the two thugs, beating them up)
  • Verko: A-WAH-WHAT?!? (Gets grabbed by the figure as Verko screamed like a girl) Put me down!! Put me down!! PLEASE SPARE MY MONEY-MAKER!!!
  • ???: (The figure was revealed subtly to be Chummer as he sounded tough)... Then leave this cat alone, and never threaten him again!... EVER!!!
  • Verko: (He blabbers like an idiot) Wha-wha-whatever you say! (Chummer let go as he ran for the hills like a coward with Java and Java. Then the scranger ran off before Capper can even see what happened)...
  • Capper:... The hell just happened? Ughhh, it doesn't matter! I'll be sure to thank whatever crazy vigilante decided to screw over Verko... (Sighs) Oh well, I got nothing better to do since I didn't die, I may as well make it up to those ponies... I owe 'em big after what they did for me for screwing them over like that... But... What if I... What if they don't trust me?... You know what? I promised them friendship, and I'm sure as hell gonna give it to them! (Gives the messenger from before a few bit) Make it... Something that seems unexpectedly popular!... I'm going after those poor ponies!
  • Messenger: Are you sure, Cap? That sounds crazy!
  • Capper: I didn't say it was the SMART thing!... But it is the RIGHT thing! I didn't wanna be an awful person forever, and I am NOT changing my mind now! (The messenger played this song as Capper got prepared)
Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up

Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up

  • Koala From Song Number: The heck is he humming to?
  • Salamander From Song Number: I have no idea! I think it was popular a couple of years back!
  • Capper: (As he continued humming, he used his cat-like agility to pounce, leap, and flip acrobatically across the dusty landscape of the town and hijack an airship)... HERE I COME, PONIES! (He climbed on and snuck into a box)...
  • (Twilight):... Huh?... I guess Chummer WAS having his back before he even believed he was long gone, and got Verko off his back just like he got him ON his back. But... How do they- (The whole thing shifted back to the glooming ponies at the foggy shore)
  • Rainbow Dash:... Well, do I feel more stupid than ever! I feel like just drowning myself in the water right about now and ending it all!
  • Applejack: Hey, despite your... Earlier, scene... You did have a point. Twilight was so determined to save us all, she thought we were being distracted ourselves by the wonders outside Equestria and not as helpful as when we met! Being determined to save a place in grave danger can do that to ya, and when you're distracted by alien lands, you can get quite excited and therefore cocky and lose track of the problem at hoof. So, sugar-cube, don't go beatin' yourself up about that!
  • Pinkie: I mean, despite the profanity, I'd say you were right. We should've seen that breakdown coming a mile away. I was just too distracted by whimsy myself, I didn't even pay attention to what was going on around Twilight or us! I should've just ASKED Capper if we SHOULD trust him before it was too late. I CERTAINLY didn't help by encouraging your Sonic Rainboom, either.
  • Rainbow Dash: YA THINK?!?
  • Pinkie: And I should've just stuck up for Twilight and talked to Novo BEFORE deciding to sing. Celestia knows it could've stopped a scene like that.
  • Rainbow Dash: Yeah, because if there's ANYTHING that friendship puzzle from a couple of months back taught us anything, it's NEVER WASTE TIME SPENT MAKING THINGS WORK OUT BY SINGING ARIAS LIKE A DISTRACTED FILLY! Now Twilight's practically sobbing her eyes out because she believes we're done with her, and I don't even feel we really WERE helping after what happened back there!
  • Rarity: You're right! WE WERE SO BLINDED BY THE WONDERS, WE WERE BLIND TO TWILIGHT'S FRUSTRATIONS!!! OF ALL THE-
  • Rainbow Dash: If you say that again, I'm gonna dunk you in the sea water until your drama queen attitude washes out!
  • Fluttershy:... What if we WERE too distracted by this? I mean... I was clearly distracted more than all of us down there! You know how much I love the ocean since I saved Equantica! I've been opening to it on a spiritual level! I thought that, since Tempest destroyed our merpony forms... I'd NEVER see Equantica again!... I was hoping that our meet with Novo and Skystar... Would give me that wonderful feeling of exploring the sea again, but... When Twilight did what she did out of desperation, and our forms were taken, at least safely, then... (Sobs)...
  • Applejack:... I'm so sorry, Fluts.
  • Fluttershy:... This whole journey was SUCH a mistake! (Sobs) All we wanted was SOMEPONY to help us!
  • Applejack:... You think... Maybe it's time we talk to Twilight?
  • (Spike): (He came in plopping around crazily) AHH! SHE'S, BEEN, TAKEN!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: WHAT?!?
  • (Twilight): Wait... Was this after I was... Oh, who am I kidding, it is, I'm not deaf!
  • Spike: TWILIGHT'S BEEN TAKEN!! TEMPEST, SHE GRABBED HER, AND TOOK HER ON HER SHIP!!! (Everyone gasped)
  • Rainbow Dash:... WE GOTTA GET HER BACK!
  • Fluttershy: How? We'll never catch up!
  • Applejack: And we got no way to defeat those monsters! (Fluttershy sighed as Capper jumped down from the airship and used his cat-like abilities and agility to find and approach them and onto the rock coming out of the fog for them to notice)
  • Capper: Well, good thing I happen to know of a group of mighty heroes that could handle this easily!
  • (Twilight):... I have to admit... That's a good entrance! I'll give the cat that.
  • Rarity: Well, look what the cat dragged in... HIMSELF!
  • Capper: These heroes have faced the Storm King's army and escaped! I've seen them tackle the streets of the roughest towns, break out of the TIGHTEST situations, AND inspire others to join their cause! (The ponies except Applejack oohed in amazement)
  • Applejack:... Now don't get too excited! He's just talking about us! (They awed)
  • (Twilight):... Wow, way to be a downer, AJ!
  • Capper: (He leapt off the rock) They even escaped certain doom, at the hooves of Commander Tempest! (Future Twilight noticed Celaeno and her crew rowing towards them on their makeshift boat)
  • Rainbow Dash:... Yeah... That was pretty great!
  • Celaeno: (They hopped off) Are you KIDDING ME?!? (The group noticed them) That was AWESOME!!
  • Murdock: BAAAAWWWWWWKK!!!
  • Boyle: Figured you could use a CLAW!
  • Celaeno: We're onboard to help you fight the Storm King! Just not onboard our, actual ship. (Rainbow Dash noticed the scraps they used to get there and smiled with a grin)
  • Mullet: That crazy unicorn sunk it... But you got back our AARRRRGH!!!... And we're ready to kick some booty! (Twilight noticed a light in the water and went down to see what it was, seeing Skystar)
  • Skystar:... (Sighs)... I told you mom wasn't gonna be reasonable, guys! But... If she's not gonna come, then it looks like it's up to us! I'm... I'm glad, to go out like a hero! Anything's better than that boring old sea cave! (She transformed as the glow was noticed by the group and she transformed to her hippogriff form)...
  • (Twilight): Sweet!
  • Capper: Is that what I think it is?
  • Celaeno: ("I... I thought they were gone!")
  • Capper: ("Clearly them hippogriffs are as legendary as their friend in the legendary Guardians of Harmony!")
  • Skystar: (She lands)... HELLOOOOO! Me again! (Chuckles) I'm gonna get SO grounded, but I talked things over with Shelly and Sheldon, and they pointed out that you were just trying to help your friends!... So I wanna help too!
  • (Twilight):... She DEFINITELY needed friends!
  • Skystar:... Cuz, ya know... One small thing... (Whispering) Can make a really big difference!
  • (Twilight): (She face-hoofed herself) Ugh, helpful but unneeded!
  • Spike:... That's it, right? We didn't make friends with anypony else?
  • (Twilight): (Chuckles) Spike, never change!
  • Capper: Alright, yall! I think our course is clear!... YALL READY TO DO THIS THANG?!?
  • Pinkie: WE'RE COMING TWILIGHT! (They all cheered in rejoice)... AS SOON AS WE BAKE UP A PLAN!
  • (Twilight):... (Sighs)... Well... I guess I see why I was reminded.... At least... I made a difference and STILL made allies, even if it was long too late to make them. And... We took down Storm King! It was... Needed!

Twilight's Subconscious Future

  • (Twilight): (She was shifted into another familiar area)... Oh, now what?
  • Storm King: (Cackles as he was seen with a defeated group of heroes)... Well, Princess, you thought you could defeat me twice? My plan WORKED! With your defeat, the rest of your people will be discouraged, and we will FINALLY be able to take it! They've been fighting strong for a while... But this time, WE have the last laugh! You let yourself be a wreck by fearing some drama show would happen again, and son of a gun, it did! Taking the fight to yourself after some 'drama scene' involving those misfits on the way here, was QUITE a silly sacrifice.
  • Twilight:... I-I don't understand! I thought I had this in the bag! I had it ALL planned out with my friends!
  • Storm King: (Chuckles) If those heroes WERE around helping you, maybe things would've turned out different! They saw how independent you tried to be from your fears, and you failed by just deciding to not take the time to face the fear yourself and cast them off the mission for something as stupid as a retarded miscalculation that got more of your friends captured. Even if your own circle of friends tagged in at the last step into battle, you stood NO CHANCE AGAINST MY FATHER'S POWER! (Cackles) OHHH, how karma kicked you in your tattooed ass, because those heroes turned against you for being so scared of the past, you didn't think you could cope with a mission like this with allies as wacky as them anymore! (Cackles)... It makes your defeat... SO MUCH SWEETER! THE POOR LITTLE PONY FAILED AT FRIENDSHIP AGAIN! (Cackles) I'M LAUGHING SO HARD RIGHT NOW, MY SIDES ARE ACHING! (He laughs as he pointed his staff at her) So, yeah... See ya! (He absorbs her magic)
  • Twilight: NO! NOOOOO!!!
  • Tempest: STORM, STOP!... You... Can you spare her life... If I agree to come back to your side?
  • Storm King:... (Cackles) IT'S A DONE DEAL, THEN! (He teleported her away as she screamed, and he cast a spell that turned her evil again as she lined up with her corrupted mother and siblings as Future Twilight was shocked at what she was seeing)
  • (Twilight):... Is... IS THIS WHAT COULD'VE BEEN?!? Please tell me you're just screwing with me now!! (The setting switched to Twilight, as she was seen crying hysterically)... Oh Celestia, you're not screwing with me!
  • Twilight: (She watched as the Storm King started subjugating everypony in Equestria at a distance with help from Tempest and her corrupted family as the 3 ponies remained turned to coal)... WHAT HAVE I DONE?!? I LET MY FEARS DESTROY ME! (Cries and then the Lodgers came in)
  • Spyro:... Oh, no! We're too late!
  • Sir Hiss: I knew it! I KNEW it! I just KNEW this would happen! I knew we should've just stood by her this whole time!
  • Skipper: WELL, EXCUSE US FOR BEING ANGRY THAT SHE SAID WE REALLY DIDN'T DESERVE TO PROTECT EQUESTRIA AFTER SOMEONE (Nudges Fidget) MISCALCULATED STORM KING'S HOME'S LOCATION AND GOT TEMPEST AND GRUBBER CAPTURED BY HIS FORCES!!
  • Fidget: I SAID I WAS SORRY, DON'T GO SHIFU AND/OR SHEN SEVERAL CHRISTMASES AGO ON ME PLEASE!!
  • Soothsayer: Everyone, calm yourselves! The High Council told us to make it up to her, so we're here for her now.
  • Pang Bing: Exactly! So let's get this over with. Twilight, I-
  • Twilight: Please... Don't... Talk to me!... Everything in Equestria, is gone... And it's all my fault! (She cried)... I DESTROYED MY OWN HOME!!! I LET MY FEARS DESTROY ME AND WIN OVER ME!!
  • Shenzi: Hon, fears can win over all of us sometimes. Remember when Scar duped Simba into thinking he committed accidental patricide?
  • Twilight: BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT! I... I LET DOWN CELESTIA!... THE BEST THING TO A MOTHER I EVER HAD! I... I don't wanna live anymore! (All, including Future Twilight, were shocked upon learning this)... It's... It's all on you heroes now!... Save Equestria for me! Tell Celestia... I'm sorry!
  • Spike: TWILIGHT, NO!! (Twilight used a powerful spell to cause her to fade away into magical mist)...
  • Applejack: TWILIIIGHT!!! (Twilight was gone)...
  • Fluttershy:... No! (Many of the heroes began to cry)
  • Icky: (Sniffles) I would make a joke about how that's gonna ruin Hasbro's toy sales and the canon show, but... (He cries out loud) BUT THIS MOMENT'S TOO F*****G SAD FOR ME BEING A DISATTACHED ASSHOOOOOOOOOOOO-HO-HO-HO-HOOOOOOOOLE!!
  • Lord Shen: (He holds back his own tears) Now I feel conflicted on whether I should be glad you're taken something seriously for once, or that your levity wouldn't be able to make us feel better!! EITHER WAY, THIS IS A DIS-HASSSSS-TE-HER-HER!!
  • Trixie: (Sniffles) I know I typically butt-heads with Twilight Sparkle over who's stronger than who, but..... I DIDN'T WANTED IT TO END LIKE THIIIIIIIIS!! (Grabs onto Thunderclap crying as he comforted her)
  • Spike:... My... My surrogate mother... Is gone!... (He sobs)... HOW COULD WE LET HER DO THIS?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: (She cried) THIS IS ALL OUR FAULT! IF WE HAD JUST STUCK TO HER FROM THE BEGINNING-
  • Soothsayer: Everyone, I am just as upset about this loss as us! But... This spell she used... It's one used by that of ponies contemplating suicide, in where they would do so to try and enlighten themselves in a hopeless situation.
  • Icky: BUT THIS IS BEYOND STEALING-A-MAGICAL-PEARL-TO-USE-AS-A-DEUS-EX-MACHINA-AGAINST-A-YETI-GOATMAN STUPID!!! SHE KILLED HERSELF BECAUSE SHE FEELS SHE RUINED EVERYONE'S LIVES!!!
  • Soothsayer: Well, she failed to save everyone for the first time in her life. It... It must feel painful to experience that. She's grown so used to being a daughter figure to Celestia... She's afraid that failure could result in her losing everything. Even with Equinox training... She couldn't find quick ways to cope with it. We... We were simply too late. (The heroes continued crying)
  • Applejack:... Then we gotta honor her name! We gotta free Equestria, TOGETHER!
  • (Twilight): (She was sobbing as she saw what happened next as they successfully stopped Storm King)... Yes!... I... That sounds like something that WOULD happen should I use... The Suicidal Enlightener Deconstruction Spell. I... I long forgot I learned that spell in my teenage years in the case I ever felt like killing myself.... But... It still... It still made a difference. (She went to the aftermath of the battle)
  • Luna: You want us to do WHAT?!?
  • Rainbow Dash:... We want you to use the same spell Twilight used on herself!
  • Celestia:... Why?
  • Spike: Because... Because she changed our lives phenomenally! She was the motherly figure to me. You know how much I fear having to feel lost, and... Now it's all come true. Just, tell Ember and Thorax I said goodbye, and that it was great to have known them.
  • Applejack:... So... We feel we wanna join her as guardian angels for Equestria. It's... It's what she would've wanted. And after how much she feared losing her friends... We can't leave her alone. Just be sure to tell Applebloom that she has to be the one to take care of Sweet Apple Acres now, and that Big Mac will help show the ropes.
  • Fluttershy:... I don't wanna go on living without Twilight, either. And... I don't wanna go on living without all my animal friends so... Can you... Do the same for them? Keep in mind, I know that's too intense, but, they would likely be too miserable without me, given that they lost their natural instincts and are too domesticated to survive in the wild, so, you may as well cut their misery short! And tell all of my roommates I made over the years that they can have my cottage.... Just, promise me Discord behaves himself without me. I hope Black Kat can keep him happy and out of trouble. (Covers up her face with her mane to muffle out cries)
  • Pinkie:... (Her hair slowly sunk into straightness again)... I feel I have no meaning to my life of spreading happiness without somepony to motivate it to it's greatest. I've... Never been so low in my life. Just... Just tell the Cakes I love them like a family! HECK, BE SURE TO SEND MY FINAL REGARDS TO MY ACTUAL FAMILY TOO!! TELL THEM I LOVED THEM ALL!! EVEN LIME DESPITE HER ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!! And try not to take Maud's lack of a proper emotional responses at face-value, she has a condition that prevents a proper emotion, as deep down, SHE CARES A LOT MORE ON THE INSIDE!! AND TELL CHEESE SANDWICH TO NOT STOP WHAT HE'S DOING, and to possibly take my empty void at Sugarcube Corner! The last thing I would want from him is to stop because of me being gone, AND PLEASE GIVE GUMMY A GOOD HOME IN THAT GARDEN, HE LIKES SWEETS AND-
  • Luna: Please calm down, Pinkie! We'll have all that and other things you wish from us covered.
  • Pinkie:... Thank you! (She sobs)
  • Rainbow Dash: And I don't wanna be in the Wonderbolts without being with the one who helped me realize that I could never trade my friends for them. I love Twilight more than anything in my heart's personal desires, INCLUDING my drive to win. It was great to be among them... And I did live knowing I was one of them at last.
  • Rarity:... And me?... I feel like there's no meaning and sparkles in my life without Twilight. She helped my business bloom, and... I can't cope knowing I let her kill herself. That is not a good thank you for all she did. Just be sure to tell Coco Pommel and Sassy Saddles that they can have my business establishments now! And tell Sweetie Belle and my parents..... Not to weep for me!
  • Applejack: And for me?... (Sighs)... Honestly, I was going to feel lost to her some time, and I felt I wanted more in my life before I met Twi. Not to say being an apple farmer was boring... I just... She changed my life, and gave me more than what I wanted. I wanna be there with her. Just... Just tell my family I love them, and again, tell Applebloom to watch over the farm, yet not stop doing what her cutie mark desires!
  • Rarity: Same for Sweetie!
  • Rainbow Dash: And Scootaloo!
  • Celestia:... (Sighs)... As you wish! I shall ascend all of you and Twilight... Into the Spirits of Friendship. You will still do what you did in life... As spirits. I hope you find enlightenment. (She cast the spell as the Lodgers and everyone else watched in sadness as they ascended)...
  • (Twilight):... I... I really did mean so much to them, that they'd follow me even after death.... (She sobs tears of joy)... WHY AM I CRYING SO MUCH?!?... (She saw a further future where Equestria was stronger than ever, as the Castle became a memorium, as an elderly Mayor Mare guided ponies, including an older CMC, and older versions of their school mates and filly friends, to the memorium)
  • Adult Applebloom: (In regular Michelle Creber voice)... Ah, such good memories!
  • Adult Sweetie Bloom: (In regular Claire Corlett voice) Oh, Rarity! You saved us from so much chaos, and brought friendship back to the world!
  • Adult Scootaloo: (In regular Madeleine Peters voice) And Rainbow Dash brought us so much excitement in OUR lives!... (The three sobbed)
  • All Three: Cutie Mark Crusaders... TOGETHER! (They high-hooved and sobbed to themselves as they continued on with the tour)
  • Mayor Mare:... And here, is where the Princess of Friendship spent her last years... With her friends spreading friendship all across Equestria, before they defeated Storm King again. They... They now exist as spirits that continue to spread friendship. And with their aid... Equestria and beyond are back to where they were before the Chaos Wars. (The adult CMC were sobbing)... Let us have a moment of silence, to honor the heroes who saved us in the dark hardships brought on by the Storm Clan.... (Many of them started crying)... OH, WHO AM I KIDDING, WE WEREN'T GONNA BE SILENT FOREVER, IF AT ALL! (She cried with them as their spirits were seen watching them)...
  • (Twilight):... (She smiled with teary eyes)... This... This... (She sobbed)... This is so touching! We're still heroes by the time the CMC grow up!... I... (Sighs)... Why am I fearing all this? Storm King really DOES want this to come out of me!

Reality

  • Twilight: (She was crying in her sleep until she finally woke up)... (She sighs)... I know what I have to do now!
  • Icky: What did you see?
  • Pinkie: Yeah, you were crying a lot in your sleep. (The Charwoman made noises)... Hmm. I guess that provides a good enlightenment.
  • Twilight: I saw... I saw how I built up my friendships in the past, and... I saw what our last mission against Storm King did to bring heroes and others out of their shells... I ALSO SAW HOW RAINBOW DASH AS MOCKING AND/OR INSULTING NOVO WITH A SOUTH PARK SONG!! (Rainbow Dash blushed with a nervous chuckle as everyone looked at her with disappointed stares)
  • Rainbow Dash:... You... You saw that, huh?
  • Twilight: Yes, and I would've strangled you if I didn't have a conscience, and because of the obvious fact that I was pretty much invisible and everything there was mostly just a magic simulation that can't be touched or interacted with, of course!
  • Capper:... I guess it explains why you told Novo to skip what happened after she decided to make up.
  • Icky: D*** move, RD!
  • Rainbow Dash: SORRY, OKAY?!?
  • Twilight:... Anyway, after that, I saw a future where Storm King defeated me and Tempest, and... I killed myself using an Enlightenment Deconstruction Spell... And my friends asked the Princesses to do the same to them so we can be spirits of friendship... Who healed the influence of the Storm Clan by the time the CMCs were adults.
  • Ick:... Wow!... Dark!
  • Lord Shen: DARK?!? THAT'S BEYOND DARK!! THAT'S WORTHY OF BEING ONE HELL OF A BRONY'S TEARJERKER FANFICTION!!
  • Pinkie:... That's so beautiful! I never thought we'd wanna die with you if this didn't happen, but... OHHH, GIMME A HUG, TWILIGHT! (She strangle-hugged Twilight as did the other Mane 6)
  • Twilight: CHOKING, NOT BREATHING!!!
  • Grubber: Yeesh, that sounded intense... I just hope Tempest's story is a more merciful and less heart-breaking one. (The Charwoman mumbled)... (Sighs) I know, I shouldn't get my hopes up. I mean, pardon me for not trying to be negative here!

Tempest's Subconscious Past

  • (Tempest): (She awoke in a large windy twilight-lit desert in a similar fashion to one of her comics)... (Sighs)... Alright... Do your worst!... I am prepared to face my demons! (The setting changed to her childhood in Canterlot)... I... I know this place!... It's my home! My original home! (Memories started to rush around her head as they started to come to her) URRGGHHH!!...
  • ???: Now, honey, I know you wanna fight like me and your father, but... Come on, this is a little too soon! (Tempest saw her younger self, about roughly the same age as she was when she lost her horn, with a younger and pre-tormented Aphelion)
  • Young Tempest: But mama, I wanna fight baddies like you! You and daddy are so amazing when you kick their asses! (She covers her mouth)... I'm-I'm so sorry!
  • Aphelion: Where... Where did you learn that word?
  • Young Tempest: Please don't put soap in my mouth, mama! My daddy said it!
  • Aphelion:... (Sighs) God... Darn it, Perihelion, why? (Sighs) Well, you are somewhat growing up, Tempest, so I'll excuse it this time. Besides, I don't feel you're ready to join in the military. After all, you're too young to join.
  • Tempest: But I can do it, mama! I'm ready!
  • Aphelion: Young lady, you need to know that this isn't a game! People get hurt!
  • Tempest: Peh, I'm not afwaid- (She burns her hoof on the oven) OW!
  • Aphelion: Ah, that's my point! If you ARE to face a threat out there, you'll likely end up with something worse than a burnt hoof if you keep that attitude!
  • Tempest:... Oh, it's just a wittle singe, that's all!
  • (Tempest): (Giggles) I guess I DO remember talking like that as a filly.
  • Aphelion: Just go to your room, honey! You're not ready to fight!
  • Tempest: Well, when WILL I be weady in your eyes?
  • Aphelion: When your older! You need to be as physically fit as you can, and that INCLUDES the right age. Every time you say you're ready to fight, it proves to me how much you're NOT!
  • Tempest: I AM! WATCH! (She gets out her BB gun)
  • Aphelion: WAIT, NO- (She fired at a tree as it ended up crashing on their vibrant garden, scaring off birds)...
  • Tempest:... Whoopsies!
  • Aphelion:... MY GARDEN!... (She got angry at Tempest as she gave an innocent smile)... Give me that BB gun! Now! Giving it to you was a big mistake!
  • Tempest: But... But I'm nothing without it!
  • Aphelion: If you're nothing without it, then you shouldn't have it at all!
  • Tempest:... HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT?!? IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T TRUST ME!!! YOU DON'T BELIEVE I CAN DO GREAT THINGS! I'M NOT GIVING THIS BACK IF YOU DON'T TRUST-
  • Aphelion: (She spanked her and took the BB gun, causing her to tear up)... This will be the LAST time I tell you this, young lady, so you'd BETTER listen as a growing girl: YOU, NEED, TO BE OLD ENOUGH TO BE A GOOD FIGHTER! IF YOU GO OUT THERE, YOU WILL BE KILLED! (Dubbed as Bogo) LIFE ISN'T SOME CARTOON MUSICAL WHERE YOU SING A LITTLE SONG, AND YOUR SILLY DREAMS MAGICALLY COME TRUE!... So grow up, get wise, open your eyes, and LET, IT, GO!... (Tempest was teary-eyed at her reaction, and Aphelion started to regret what she said, as Tempest cried and ran off)
  • (Tempest):... (Sighs)... Well, that I seem to reme- (A horrid vision went in her head as she was seen having her horn broken, and earlier on falling, drowning, being found on a shore, and given amnesia)... AHHHGH!... WHY ARE THESE MEMORIES HURTING ME?!?
  • Tempest: (She was seen later sobbing in her bed after her mother's snap, as she looked at many posters of heroic figures, and shed a tear)... M... Maybe she's wight!... Maybe I AM not weady!... Why am I so bwind with this?... Maybe... Maybe I SHOULD wait!
  • ???: WHAT?!? (This startled Tempest)
  • Tempest: WHAT?!? MAMA?!? WHAT HAPPENED?!? (She came in)
  • Aphelion: WHAT DO YOU MEAN GONE?!? (She was talking to the black cat King and Queen of Abyssinia from the comics) HE WAS JUST INVESTIGATING STORM CLAN ACTIVITY IN PANTHERA!!!
  • Queen of Abyssinia: Commandress Aphelion, I'm sorry, but it's true! He just... Vanished.
  • King of Abyssinia: Apparently... It was all a trap!
  • Aphelion: A TRAP?!?... You're kidding me!
  • Queen of Abyssinia: We are not ones to joke around, Commander Aphelion! Not... Not after the results! Perihelion offered to guard anything that could've been stolen including our treasury. We are a trade nation. Taking all that would ruin us.... But it was a trap to capture your husband.
  • King of Abyssinia: Possibly to squeeze sensitive information about your homeland.
  • Aphelion: DAMMIT! CELESTIA DAMMIT!!
  • King of Abyssinia: What'll you do, Commander?
  • Aphelion:... I'll meet you soon! I NEED to rescue him! (She shut off a magical communication spell)... Tempest!
  • Tempest: Mother, what's going on?
  • Aphelion: None of your business!
  • Tempest: Where's daddy?
  • Aphelion: I SAID NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!
  • Tempest: Can I come?
  • Aphelion: NONE, OF, YOUR, BUSINESS, HOW FREAKING DEAF ARE YOU?!? (Tempest got sad)... (Sighs) Look... I'm sorry, Tempest... I'm sorry I was so hard on you! Look... You clearly look like you're growing too early, but you have so much to learn. Your daddy is in trouble, and... And I need to take care of it! But you cannot come! This sounds far to dangerous!
  • Tempest:... (Sighs)... Alwight, mama! I'll... I'll open up my eyes for once! Given what those cats said... It DID sound too dangerous. Go... Go get daddy back!
  • Aphelion: Good girl! Mommy will be right back! (She got her military equipment and left)...
  • (Tempest):... Is... Is this when... (She went back to her childhood room)
  • Tempest:... (She started to contemplate to herself)... Open your eyes, Tempest! This... This is too dangerous! You seem to be a little... Siwwy now! You... You can't expect everything to work out so easily... I... I gotta check on my Dad!... I wanna grow up!... I WANNA SEE THE WORLD CLEARLY! I'MA COMING, DADDY! (She snuck into her father's things and took a lot and got badass for a second and went out)
  • (Tempest):... So... This whole thing... Was instinctual? I... Was too guilty of being blind to reality... I wanted to grow up by joining my mother to save my father?... I... I- (She shifted locations)...
  • Aphelion: TEMPEST! WHAT'RE YOU DOING HERE?!? I THOUGHT WE AGREED YOU'D STAY HOME!
  • Tempest: I know, mommy! I... I didn't wanna come with you... But... I WANNA GROW UP!
  • Aphelion: What?
  • Tempest:... I don't wanna be siwwy again... I mean... Silly again!... I wanna be bold! I don't wanna be a filly anymore! I wanna be a pony! I WANNA BE A STALLION! I WANNA MAKE YOU PROUD! (She went off and stormed through the door)
  • Aphelion: TEMPEST, DON'T! (They arrived to find something shocking: Their father's hung body)...
  • Tempest: DADDY!
  • Aphelion: PERIHELION!
  • ???: I have been expecting you! (Cackles as the Storm King was seen sitting there casually)...
  • Storm King:... You are SUCH a naïve race, ponies! I just don't get why you are so hard to conquer when this could've been your downfall EONS ago! It makes it so funny how easy it is to get away with this with you! I lure a pony representative to Abyssinia, he falls for it! I trick him into a trap disguised as an escape plan that results in a hanging after he proves too resilient, he falls for it! I expect his wife to come in to save the day, AND YOU JUST FALL FOR IT! LIKE HUSBAND LIKE WIFE, AM I RIGHT?!? (Cackles) HOW IN THE NAME OF THE GODS DID MY FAMILY HAVE SO MUCH TROUBLE CONQUERING YOU?!? YOU ARE SO GULLIBLE! (He got up) It makes your eventual defeat so easier to stomach when it comes!
  • Tempest: (She was actually showing raw fear and hid behind her mother crying)...
  • Storm King: (Cackles) Whose this adorable little tyke? She sounds bold! She sounds like she wants to grow up!
  • Aphelion: SHE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT SHE WANTS! SHE'S ONLY A CHILD!
  • Storm King: Oh, I understand!... And she clearly needs a father figure to show her that life's a train-wreck waiting to happen!...
  • Aphelion:... (Her horn charged up) DON'T YOU LAY A FINGER ON HER, YOU MONSTER!!!
  • Storm King: OOOOH, I'm SOOOO scared! BLEH- (He was blasted into a wall)
  • Aphelion:... YOU WILL PAY FOR KILLING MY HUSBAND, YOU BITCH!
  • Storm King: (Chuckles) Such language, there are children present! (Cackles)... You sound like a mother whose been through a LOT! A WHOLE LOT, AND A LOT TO LOSE! Well, let me take some of the WEIGHT OFF! (He blasts a powerful beam that she tried to fight off as Future Tempest watched in horror as it ended up in a similar situation as her as the Storm King overpowered her and broke her horn as she screamed in pain)
  • Tempest: MAMA!! (Aphelion fell on the floor as Tempest and her future self watched in horror)
  • Storm King: (Chuckles) Poor Aphelion! Never could learn when she'd been beaten!
  • Tempest:... YOU, CONDESCENDING, SADISTIC, CALLOUS, MOTHERF*****!!!
  • Storm King: Pardon- (She blasted him with magical volleys of energy as he screamed comically)... DIRTY LITTLE RUNT!!! (He blasted a powerful burst of energy that rebounded her blasts as she took a hit, and fell crying to herself)... Why don't you cry to your mommy?... Better yet, you wanna grow up? Then join me! I'll make you a powerful warrior! You can grow up, in style!
  • Tempest: NO! I WON'T JOIN YOU! YOU KILLED MY MAMA AND DADDY!! THIS... THIS IS FOR THEM! (She charged her power, but instead of just hitting him, it resulted in a blue energy explosion that knocked her out of the area as she fell and tumbled down a slope) OW, OW, OW, OW, OW- (She was hit in the head hard as she was dazed and fell straight into the water, as she sunk with bubbles escaping her mouth as she fell unconscious, Future Tempest seeing it from the ledge above)
  • (Tempest): (She was in horror)... Wh... HOW DID I SURVIVE THAT?!? (She faced more haunting memories) AAHHHHHH!!! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! (She saw the Ursa Minor, and the words 'Open Up Your Eyes' were heard multiple times in her head) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!! WHY DOES IT HURT?!? IT SHOULDN'T HURT!!! IS THIS SOME SICK IRONY THAT THE PAST HURTS, BECAUSE IT'S NOT FUNNY!!!... (She sobs)... It's not funny! (She cries to herself, then noticed that her body was noticed by seaponies)... Wha...? (The seaponies picked up her body, and it shifted to a beach in Drungar, where they rested he body and gave her a CPR spell which expelled the water out of her as she coughed)
  • Tempest:... Where am I?... Who am I?
  • Seapony #1:... You don't know who you are?
  • Tempest: No.
  • Seapony #2: Poor child must've hit her head and lost her memory.
  • Seapony #1:... Little one, there's some services nearby. Hopefully, they'll direct you to an orphanage where you can stay.
  • Tempest: But, wait, what happened to me?
  • Seapony #1: We found you underwater unconscious. We had to get you to the nearest pony civilization, and that was here in Drungar.... Hopefully the inhabitants will give you sanctuary.
  • Tempest:... Can you take me there? I feel a wittle shy on my own!
  • Seapony #1: I dunno, given your getup, you sound like you've been through a HECK of a survival scrape.
  • Tempest: (She noticed what she was wearing)... WEAPONS?!? WHY AM I WEARING WEAPONS?!?... I MUST'VE BEEN A SURVIVOR OF SOMETHING TRAGIC!!!
  • Seapony #1: I'll say.
  • Tempest:... (She looked around)... I... (She got determined as Future Tempest was surprised)... I'm not gonna be a little filly anymore! I wanna be a grown-up! (The Seaponies were stunned by those words)...
  • Seapony #2:... Where'd SHE come from?
  • Seapony #1: (She walked off) I dunno, but she CLEARLY has some guts!... Well, let's go. (They went back into the water)
  • (Tempest):... I... It makes so much sense!... THAT'S why I've been growing up since I lost my memory. Heck... It explains why I was being so tough and self-empowered.... And it also explains... (She suddenly saw the visions of her destroying her horn when confronted by the Ursa Minor, and screamed)... WHAT THE HELL?!? (She shifted to a familiar setting)... No!... This can't be... The Drungar Metro Station?
  • Tempest: SPRING! GLITTER! WAIT UP!
  • (Tempest): NO!! CHARWOMAN, I DON'T WANNA SEE THIS!!!
  • Spring:.. Oh... Hi, Fizzy! You come to say goodbye?
  • Glitter: And uh... How is your horn?
  • Tempest: (Sighs)... As it still was when you... You... (She sobbed)... YOU LEFT ME ALL ALONE!!! (She cried and Future Tempest couldn't help but sob herself)
  • Spring: WAIT, LEFT?!?
  • Glitter: WHY WOULD YOU THINK WE LEFT YOU?!?
  • Spring:... Didn't you say we avoid her most of the time after she got the injury?
  • Glitter:... Oh, crap! (Tempest was saddened)... Fizzy, don't take it the wrong way! We figured you moved on since your dreams of joining us in Celestia's School were practically dashed thanks to that Ursa Minor.
  • Tempest: BUT... BUT WHY WEREN'T YOU THERE TO COMFORT ME?!? I CAME HERE IN THE HOPES THAT YOU'D SAY A PROPER GOODBYE AND WASH AWAY ALL THESE BAD FEELINGS OF MY DREAM BEING RUINED! BUT... YOU TWO CLEARLY LOOK LIKE YOU'RE SCARED OF ME!!!
  • Spring: IT'S NOTHING PERSONAL, OKAY?!? WE STILL CARE ABOUT YOU!... WE... WE JUST DON'T WANNA BE-
  • Tempest: WHAT?!? TURNED INTO A CHICKEN?!? ZAPPED TO A CRISP?!? (Her broken horn charged up uncontrollably as ponies noticed in fear) I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!!! I WAS LONELY AND SHUNNED FOR SO MANY YEARS SINCE I LOST MY HORN!!! (Her eyes were tearing up) I FELT LIKE I COULD NEVER HAVE A FRIEND AGAIN!! I... I...
  • Spring: WE DIDN'T MEAN IT! REALLY!!
  • Glitter: FIZZY, PLEASE!
  • Tempest: (She was struggling to hold back her tears as it caused her magic to build up and Future Tempest watched in horror and tear-driven eyes)... I... I... IIIII...
  • Spring: FIZZZYYYYYY!!! (Tempest finally broke down and cried hysterically as the magic released caused untold magical chaos that caused panic)... FIZZY, WE'RE SORRY!!
  • (Tempest): (She was crying as well as she watched all the chaos her past self caused, and how much it hurt others, and couldn't watch, as she covered herself and sobbed until the dust cleared and the Station was wrecked)... (She saw a crying sitting younger Tempest as she went and comforted her even though she knew she couldn't feel her)... I'm... I'm sorry you had to go through this... I know how it feels... In more obvious ways than one. (Tempest ran away crying and she saw Spring and Glitter coming out of the wreckage)...
  • Glitter:... What have we done?
  • Spring: GREAT, now I have guilt!
  • (Tempest):... I'm sorry... I felt shunned!... I didn't... Mean to!... (She sobbed to herself as the setting changed, and Spring and Glitter were seen talking to Celestia)
  • Glitter:... So, as you can see, your highness... We don't want Fizzy to be put in a rough situation. She was just a lost soul who was lonely because everyone feared she'd hurt them, even if she didn't mean to.
  • Spring: Just... Just spare her!
  • Celestia:... I shall look into this when it comes. But I accept your offer. Now, it is time you come with me since your transport is out of commission.
  • Spring: Thank you, your highness!
  • (Tempest):... So... They DIDN'T mean any hard feelings. They... They still stuck up for me.... I... I gotta find them and thank them. (The setting shifted) OH, BOY, HERE WE GO AGAIN! (She arrived at the Bone Dry Desert out at night and saw her past self out in the open in a cloaked hood)... I... I know this time! This is after I left New Drungar!
  • Tempest: (She was wandering the desert until a crash was heard and she followed it to the crash site of an airship)... By the stars! (Future Tempest noticed the paw-prints of Chummer and saw him hiding nearby as Tempest searched the wreck and Chummer did the same frantically as Future Tempest followed him until the two reached the Misfortune Malachite as Tempest picked it up)
  • Chummer: Nonononono!
  • Tempest:... What is this?
  • ???: (A blinding light shined on her) HEY, YOU!! (Chummer was scared off before he could get it)
  • Tempest: WHAT?!?
  • (Tempest):... I guess this is when I met Grubber, apparently!
  • Grubber: (From the airship) GET YOUR HANDS OFF THAT GEM!! THAT'S THE PROPERTY OF THE STORM KING!!
  • Storm Guard #1: Uh, Grub, I don't think she has hands! That looks like an Equestrian!
  • Grubber:... (Sighs) Just shut up and bring me down! (They slid down on ropes or went down on rope ladders as Grubber fell down comically as his head was in the sand) Phhhmmm!! (Tempest and Future Tempest chuckled at this as Grubber got out and spit sand out of his mouth frantically) HALT!!! (He pants heavily) Yer under arrest! That gem belongs to the Storm King! (He was held back comically by Tempest) AH! SONOVA- ERRGGHHH!!! C'MERE YOU- UEERRGHAAGGHH!!
  • Tempest: Does it? He should've taken better care of it, then.
  • Grubber: GRRRGGGHH!! HAND IT OVER LADY, OR FACE STORM KING'S WRATH!! That gem's got a LOTTA magic, and he needs it!
  • Tempest: (Got interested)... Magic?... Then... If he wants it so badly... HE CAN COME AND TAKE IT! (He kicked sand into Grubber's face)
  • Grubber: ACGK!!! (Tempest got cornered by Storm Guards, and he ends up using sparks from her horn to place a flare on the ground that shocked and mesmerized the Storm Guards) *Zap* YOW! What the HECK is this?!?
  • Tempest: (The Storm Guards realized with a Metal Gear exclamation sound as Tempest was running away) Suckers!
  • Grubber:... YOU IDIOTS HAD ONE JOB, AND YOU STICK TO THIS LITTLE ARC LIKE MOTHS TO A FLAME?!? You and me are explaining this to the Storm King! And if I go down, you all are as well for your INCOMPETENCE!!!
  • Storm Guard #2: Or what?
  • Grubber:...
  • Storm Guard #2: Thought s- (Grubber grabbed him by the beard) OW, OW, OW, OW, OW, OKAY, OKAY, GEEZ!!! (They left as Chummer was distraught)
  • Chummer:... Well, f- (He was crushed by debris)... I'M OKAY! (He coughed)... Barely.
  • (Tempest): (Chuckles) At least Grubber was something back then. But... I was learning about the Malachite when I winded up in Klugetown, and how it's previous masters were ruined by it's power of carrying 'bad luck' to anyone who wielded it. Said to topple empires and start wars. PBBT, all from bad luck? What a bunch of horse sh- (The setting changed to Storm King's castle)... Wha? Oh, yeah, I was about to ask that question. What was Grubber doing after that?
  • Storm King:... Grubber? Where have you been? Where's the Misfortune Malachite?
  • Grubber: I.... I kinda, MAY'VE... Lost it.
  • Storm King:... YOU WHAT?!?
  • Grubber: Yeah, some pony wanted it for herself, because APPARENTLY she wants it for SOMETHING, and got away with it! I tried to stop her, but she was too quick and the guys were, kinda were not taking it seriously, so- (He gets grabbed by Storm King and squeezed cartoonishly like a stress-reliever toy) D'OOOWW!!
  • Storm King: (He yelled angry words similar to Skipper's as lightning crackled across the castle) GRUBBER, YOU... You... You... You, dirty... Stupid... Gluttonous... Slop-eating, sucker-sucking, baker-kissing, cake-sniffing, Twinkie-grabbing, pop-licking, shake-drinking, donut-humping, candy-loving, Trick-or-Treater-touching, gum-chewing, cookie-eating, cow-ween-eviscerating, retarded, spineless, witless, mindless, gutless, jawbreaker-choking, chocolate-gargling, show-offing, dog-face, cotton-candy-fondling, mud-pie-kissing, self-obsessed, custard-puking, unicorn-pop-shoving, milk-sneezing, pie-eating, big-nosed, tart-eating, biscuit-slapping, brownie-gathering, girl-scout-stalking, pudding-pooping, sprinkle-knocking, jelly-donut-busting, Oompa-Loompa-kissing, splooge-topping, Toot-Sweet-blowing, gum-swallowing, cookie-snatching, candy-stealing, éclair-stroking, gummy-bear-blowing, ice-cream-scatting, jelly-spewing, smoothie-gasmic, soda-blasting, wafer-biting, nut-jobbing, Bundt-cake-plugging, whoopie-pie-making, nut-grabbing, gelatin-bouncing, soda-sipping, sugar-mongering, chocolate-swimming, taffy-munching, Tootsie-Pop-biting, sugar-coated, delectable mail-order product of AN ASSHOLE!!! (Grubber and the others were shocked at his vocabulary)
  • Storm Guard #1:... Wow, what a mouth!
  • Storm King: I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU, GRUBBER!!! WERE YOU DISTRACTING YOURSELF WITH TAKE-OUT AGAIN?!?
  • Grubber: SIR, PLEASE, SHE WAS TOO SLICK FOR US, I SWEAR TO GOD!!!
  • Storm King: SWEAR TO MEEEE!!! (He and the other Storm Guards were frightened by his tone)... (Sighs) Whatever! PLEASE tell me you know where she went!
  • Grubber: Well, she'd be headed for the nearest society, and given the location of the crash site, I'd say... That place your criminal-obsessed family member hid Roc eggs in!
  • Storm King:... Klugetown? P-HAH! That sandy pile of rubble? She'd never last a SECOND! But just in case she proves me wrong... Well, you know what to do!
  • Grubber: YES, OH MIGHTY ONE! (He and his two Storm Guards went out) Come on, dorkos! You heard the head honcho! We've got work to do!
  • (Tempest):... Well, at least Stormy was courteous to his own henchmen. In a hopelessly demented way. (Grubber was seen trying to stop the caravan with Tempest and her pony acquaintance Rambler, yet comically failing classic cartoon style as this music played)
Noobs Rush In

Noobs Rush In

  • (Tempest): (She scoffed to herself)... What a loser! (She shifted to a familiar snowy valley and was in the caravan with Rambler and her past self)
  • Rambler: Hey there, miss! How're you doin?
  • Tempest: Oh, er... Fine! Just fine!
  • Rambler: I gotta say, it's rare to see another pony so far from Equestria. I ain't been back in years. I got travel in my bones. It's nice to see somebody... I mean, somepony, from back home. What brought you out here?
  • Tempest: (As Tempest looked in the past with gloom) Oh, uh... I'm looking for something. Something I lost... A LONG time ago!
  • Rambler: You LOST somethin'? Back in Equestria?
  • Tempest: Yes... Something precious. And with it... (She saw visions of her being injured and lost of her horn thanks to the Ursa Minor)... I lose everything else. I lost what I defined myself by... Then I lost those who stood by me... (She saw her destroying a metro station in a mental breakdown)... And now, I'm simply... Lost! I feel as though there is almost nothing LEFT of me. Out here, I'll either lose myself completely... Or find something new to be.
  • Rambler:... I... I'm sorry. I don't know what to say.
  • Tempest: That's alright. I don't know what I want to hear.
  • Rambler:... Well... Keep yourself bundled up, miss! It's lookin' like a real storm out there!
  • Tempest: Thank you, Rambler! I will. (Tempest sighed in the nostalgia)
  • (Tempest):... If I ever see Rambler again, I gotta thank him for giving me a generous lift.... Sad what happened afterward. (The Storm Guards attacked the caravan as Rambler and Tempest took cover)
  • Rambler: Miss? What is going on?
  • Tempest: I... I don't know! It sounds like they're searching for something.... I have an idea! I think we can escape!
  • Rambler: And that would be?
  • Tempest:... How fast can you travel on hoof?
  • Rambler:... I don't follow.
  • Storm Guard #1: We're looking for a pony thief! Fuchsia hair and Mohawk, dark-red-violet coat, stolen a green glowing gem!
  • Grubber: You were harboring this fugitive! She's wanted in the name of the Storm King!
  • Rhino Puller: Uh, you may wanna ask Rambler! He said he picked up someone like that!
  • Grubber: And where is this 'Rambler'? (A cloaked figure ran behind them)
  • Storm Guard #2: UH, GUYS?!? LOOK! (They saw Rambler running off in Tempest's cloak and chased after him)
  • Grubber: WELL, DON'T JUST STAND THERE LIKE FROZEN POPSICLES! GET HER!!
  • Storm Guard #1: OVER THERE!!
  • Storm Guard #3: SHE'S ESCAPING!!
  • Storm Guard #2: AFTER HER!
  • Tempest:... Suckers!
  • Grubber: (He noticed her) GUYS, WAIT, COME BACK, SHE'S RIGHT THERE!... URRRGH! MORONS!! I got he- (Storm King suddenly came in and shoved his face off and pushed him away) PHOOMIJERKY!!!
  • Storm King: I'll take care of that, thank you! Never send a bunch of peons to do a satyr's job!
  • Rhino Puller: You're a Satyr? I thought you were a yeti! (Gets cartoonishly zapped) YOOOW!!
  • Grubber: Uh, yes, sir! (Storm King went after her)
  • Tempest:... (Sighs)... Sorry, Rambler! But if I'm going to succeed, I can't have anything else holding me- (Storm King stepped in front of her ominously)... Oh!
  • Storm King: You know, you've been leading me on QUITE a chase! Seriously, I've had to put my BEST creatures on you!... Of course, even my BEST creatures aren't that great. Good help, and all that. But seriously, you've put some of my most IMPORTANT projects on hold! All for you! So what are you, little pony? Are you worth my time?
  • (Tempest):... This... This is when I first met Storm King near Bleak Valley!... And when I joined as his henchwoman.
  • Tempest: I... I am a unicorn! I've come a VERY long way, in search of POWERFUL magic! I've faced MANY dangers to find it!
  • Storm King: DANGERS! I'LL say! You went up against me and my army, and you've done a PRETTY good job, too! That trick with your cloak and that other pony, just now? That was darn clever. But why didn't you just ask him to help you?
  • Tempest:... Because... Because I learned a long time ago... You can't rely on anypony else.
  • Storm King: (He laughs) "Anypony?" (Scoffs) That's cute! I'll be honest with you, uh... What's your name? I don't think I caught it.
  • Tempest: My name?... Tempest! Call me, Tempest!
  • Storm King: (Recognizing the name, and after recalling her instinct and appearance, he started to recognize her again as the Aphelion's child)... ("This... THIS IS APHELION'S DAUGHTER!... ALL GROWN UP!... And I must say, she has done growing up.... Maybe I can use her to help our family conquer Equestria at last!... And what better way to do it, than by discouraging them through their own kind?")... 'Tempest'! OH, that's GREAT! That's WONDERFUL! How PERFECTLY on brand! I'll be honest with you, Tempest, I could use someone like you. Smart, talented, driven.
  • Tempest: (Her future self watched)... What do you mean?
  • Storm King: Well, I've had some PERSONNEL shakeups lately! A high-level executive just dropped out, and I need his position filled ASAP! However, if you ARE going to join, I have a condition: I'll need you to give up the Malachite!
  • Tempest: The gem? NO! I need it's magic! Because... Because... Because of THIS! (She points at her broken horn) I need something powerful to fix my horn. To get my magic back.
  • Storm King: (Scoffs) Is THAT all? Well, I can do that for you!
  • Tempest: YOU CAN?!
  • Storm King: Of course! Once I've finished CONQUERING, I'll have more power than any other creature in the world!
  • Tempest:... Is that why you're searching for magic? Just for... Power?
  • Storm King: What other goal IS there? Power. Control. These are the only things worth seeking in this world. I'll fix your horn and restore your magic... IF you pay my price!
  • (Tempest): (Sighs)
  • Tempest: (Sighs)... You know, it's rumored to be CURSED! They say it causes bad luck!
  • Storm King: Do they? What do YOU think?
  • Tempest: I think 'bad luck' is superstition! I don't blame curses! Everything bad that's happened to me... Has been someone's fault! Sometimes MINE!
  • Storm King: So you don't believe in bad luck. I DO! (He smashes the Malachite in his grasp)... And if I'm going to be conquering, the last thing I need is bad luck! Besides, it was really more of a conversation piece, you know?
  • Tempest:... So... You want magic?
  • Storm King: That I do!
  • Tempest:... I can help! I know a place FILLED with magic! Princesses. Crystals. The CLOUDS THEMSELVES!
  • Storm King:... Tempting. If it's so filled with magic, why haven't you already gone there?
  • Tempest: Because it's the place I CAME from.... Equestria. Conquer Equestria, and you'll have enough magic to do whatever you want... AND fix my horn!... PROMISE ME! (Storm King was intrigued at her thinking fitting with his manipulation)
  • Storm King: (Chuckles, "Well, Aphelion, your little grown-up, is MINE, hook-like-and-sinker! Now, your home, is officially OURS, AT LAST!!")... I promise... COMMANDER TEMPEST!
  • (Tempest): (Shrugs) I can't believe I once blindly supported this demented fool. And I forgotten on how childishly he treated me! Was I really desperate for my horn being whole again that I pardon his idiotic behavior?... (Sighs) Then again, I was so desperate, I was willing to take anything. (The setting shifted to his castle)
  • Storm King: Welcome to the Storm Kingdom, Tempest! If you're gonna get me Equestria, we need a power capable of doing so like that Pearl in Hippogrifia we talked about, AND you need to get comfortable with your new home.
  • Tempest:... Seems a little too brooding, even for you. Even Batmare wasn't that dark in her Bat-Cave!
  • Storm King: Oh, quit whining, you'll get used to it! Ya just prove to be a good investment, (Mocking baby voice) And you can kissy your little boo-boo bye-bye!
  • Tempest: (She looked annoyed)... Don't, talk to me, like that... Ever!
  • Storm King: Ohhhhhh, smart AND ballsy! I kinda like ya already! (Threatening) But I must insist you speak to me in a respectful tone in the future! Got it?!
  • Tempest: Just wanted to throw something out. I'm not a filly... Not anymore! I have one motto: I don't wanna be weak any longer. I wanna grow up!
  • Storm King: (Chuckles) Of course you do! Very well, then! You will be treated as a grown-up! As long as I get this magic, your horn is as good as back, and more!
  • Tempest: Anything it takes to get my horn back! You have no idea what it was like to have an injured horn make people scared of you and shun you! In fact... If you can prove your strength, I MIGHT think you're good enough to swear allegiance to!
  • Storm King:... In that case... You can see it when we attack Hippogrifia!
  • Tempest:... I must ask, though, why Hippogrifia?
  • Storm King: Because they are among the closest to your kind. Their ancestors are of Equestrian and griffin origin. Plus, that Pearl is said to contain magic of one of the Alicorn Gods of ancient past.
  • Tempest:... So, you think that this pearl will allow us the power to conquer Equestria?
  • Storm King: Precisely! You pull this off for me, you'll be a step closer to getting your horn back and making it more powerful!
  • Tempest:... Then I'm ready for anything!
  • Storm King: EXCELLENT! Grubber? Get the guards ready!... WE'RE GONNA TEAR DOWN HIPPOGRIFIA! WE'RE GONNA GET THAT PEARL, AND IF SUBTLETY DOESN'T WORK, WE'LL DESTROY THAT CITY, ONE BRICK AT A TIME!
  • (Tempest): Ugggh! (The setting changed as she saw the devastation of Hippogrifia on Mount Aris as the hippogriffs, including Skystar and Novo, disappeared with a flash as they were being rescued by their seapony allies, as they turned them into one of them through the Pearl of Maricolous, whose power was strong enough to offer a sanctuary spell that gave them their new forms)... (Novo looked sadly at her home being ravaged, as she was approached by two seaponies of royal attire)
  • Novo:... Swellsea!... Is this your mother?
  • Abysswish: Indeed. I am the leader of our kind in the royal castle beneath Mount Aris, and our capital of Seaqustria, Queen Abysswish.... We are willing to give you salvation until an ounce of hope comes.
  • Novo:... (She was excited as no tears were apparent because of where they were, and she hugged her as she did the same and Swellsea comforted Skystar)
  • Abysswish:... Come with me!... I can guide you into a brighter future... As your mentor!... You will find salvation in the most mysterious place in the world: The ocean!
  • Skystar:... Thank you for this, you highness! It... Really means a lot to us!
  • Abysswish: Well, they will NEVER find the Pearl they seek no matter how much they destroy, and it's all thanks to you. So... You are good enough to be one of us and have the sacred duty of protecting the Pearl of Maricolous, and the cousins that channel her power for many purposes, including transformation. You all are descended from Equestrian ponies and griffins, so you will be a good asset to us. Now come. You have a lot to learn. (Tempest watched as Novo grew from her stay, and protected the Pearl well)
  • Tempest:... (Sighs)... At least they survived! (The setting changed in between the weeks following the Hippogrifia attack and the MLP Movie, watching as Abysswish fought against Storm King on a shore while Novo was watching while hidden as she didn't know Tempest was watching with her)
  • Storm King: I WILL ASK YOU ONE LAST TIME: WHERE ARE THE HIPPOGRIFFS?!?
  • Abysswish: They are free of you! You will NEVER find them no matter how much power you have, your HIGHNESS!
  • Storm King:... Well then, I guess you must pay for ridding me of that chance... WITH YOUR LIFE! (He cast a powerful magical energy on her that curses her into gaining bubbles on her skin, and she vomited, Novo and Tempest gasping) YOU SHALL SUFFER HEAVILY FOR TAKING THE PEARL AND THE HIPPOGRIFFS FROM US, OH MIGHTY SEA RULER!... BY TURNING INTO SEA FOAM! (Cackles as he retreated within his zeppelin)
  • (Tempest): No!... I remember this, but... I didn't know it was THAT brutal! (She went back into Seaquestria's throne room as Abysswish's affliction was getting worse as she coughed sick-colored bubbles, her bubbling skin was fading away and disintegrating into foam, and she was weakening in power)
  • Novo:... Your highness... You can't leave me! We need you!... I... Need you!
  • Abysswish:... I'm... Sorry, Novo!... The curse is too strong to reverse even with the Pearl now.... It's... It's all on you now!... You have to take care of my subjects!
  • Novo: Me? But... But I don't know the first thing about ruling an underwater society! I only know how to do it on land.
  • Abysswish: (She disintegrated further and coughed a ton of green bubbles)... Well, it's time to learn!... Just... Just remember what I taught you... And... And be courteous to anyone you meet... And- (Coughs sick bubbles)... And you'll be saved again!... (She finally disintegrated)... Goodbye, Novo!... (She was gone)...
  • Novo:... (She sobbed in her throne as Swellsea and Skystar were sobbing as well, and Sir Ripple and his guard paid respect with a powerful magic ritual, as Tempest watch the spectacle)... She's right!... I have to honor her!... (She took her crown)... So... As of now... I am your ruler! I will keep us safe for as long as we must... And I will do whatever I must to ensure our old kingdom can come back once more! (All the seaponies cheered)
  • (Tempest):... I did this!... (Sighs)... I lead them to their home... And I let the seapony queen die!... It's my fault!...

Tempest's Subconscious Present

  • (Tempest): (She was now somewhere else)... Where am I now? (She was in Klugetown in the aftermath of the Main 6's escape)... Oh... This was after I tried to get the ponies in Klugetown. (She saw her past self and Grubber were seen)
  • Tempest:... THEY GOT AWAY AGAIN?!?
  • Grubber: Oh, would you relax? We still got three princesses! What's one small one still on the loose? She's hardly even a threat to the Storm King!
  • Tempest: (She looks angrily at him)... You think we PONIES ARE HARDLY EVEN A THREAT TO STORM KING... EVEN IF YOU KNOW THAT HIS FAMILY STRUGGLED TO CONQUER IT BEFORE, AND THAT WE WERE THE ORIGINAL NATIVE INHABITANTS OF THIS WORLD AND THE PREDECESSORS OF THE ALICORN GODS?!?
  • Grubber: Uh, sorry, I didn't mean for it to come out like that, I-
  • Tempest: LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, GRUB!... WE, PONIES, ARE, POWERFUL! WE CAN BE SO POWERFUL! BUT FOR SOME REASON, THEY DON'T SEE IT THAT WAY! THEY WASTE IT ON PARTIES, WHEN THEY CAN BE STRONGER! (She walks to him with a sparking broken horn) SO, DON'T YOU DARE ACCUSE THEM OF THAT, BECAUSE YOU'RE ACCUSING ME OF THAT!!! ARE YOU ACCUSING ME OF THAT, GRUBBER?!? ARE YOU?!?
  • Grubber:... N-No!
  • Tempest: Then, REMEMBER WHY I'M HERE! Don't underestimate them! Let's just get to Black Skull Island, and hope that rotten cat isn't lying! Just have him teleported back to his home to pay through that naked rat mob boss, if we WERE duped! GOT IT?!?
  • Grubber: RIGHT!! (He scurries away)
  • (Tempest):... I never realized how aggressive I was to Grubber like that. I know he was trying to say that Sparkle herself didn't stand a chance, but.... Was I really that harsh to him? (Sighs, as she ended up going to another location to after she destroyed Celaeno's ship)...
  • Tempest:... YOU FILTHY MOUSE EATER! YOU LIED TO US!!!
  • Capper: I-I CAN EXPLAIN!
  • Tempest: YOU CAN EXPLAIN IT TO VERKO! (She had a powerful blue fire teleport him away as he screamed)
  • Grubber:... So, now what?
  • Tempest: NOW, we follow those ponies to Mount Aris!
  • Grubber: Oh, God, THAT place! BAD memories!
  • Tempest: Oh, shut up, that was only a few weeks ago! We destroyed those hippogriffs' colony, and left the rest to flee! Thanks to us, no one knows where they are! Once the ponies arrive there... Well... I MAY have a hunch they'll be heading for that old place of Abysswish, AND discover what happened to those hippogriffs!
  • Grubber:... So, how do we get down there to breath? You don't seem to be fit enough to do it.
  • Tempest: Oh, I'll find a way! (Chuckles)... We just... Wait how it plays out! I did my homework on the Sparkle girl.
  • Grubber:... When did you do that?
  • Tempest: In the weeks between our invasion on Hippogrifia and now. Being the best henchpony means you need to predict the strengths and weaknesses of your enemies. And the Princess of Friendship? She's been known to take stupid risks in the name of saving Equestria.... And I would wager she didn't had a good response to what occurred with the other princesses, OR with that magic explosion that got our attention!
  • Grubber: STILL so cool!
  • Tempest: Shut up! Point is, she's very likely to make, a fatal mistake, that could cost them their aid. We may not know what happened to them, but after all this... We MAY soon find out! The death of Abysswish must've impacted them and their seapony allies somehow... And we're gonna find out!
  • Grubber:... Ya sure? I mean, I'm pretty sure the hippogriffs and their leader Novo, wherever they are, would leap at the first chance at payback for that Abbylisshwish.
  • Tempest: First off, it's 'Abysswish'! Second, if there's anything the princess is good at, it's screwing things up! Watch and learn! (They summoned magic blue fire that showed the ponies reaching the pool entrance while following Skystar, Pinkie diving in enthusiastically)
  • (Pinkie): She's gone!
  • (Twilight): (As Pinkie blew bubbles in the water) Ugh! Now what? (Eventually the whirlpool started to sucking them in)
  • (Rarity): I HATE epic adventures!
  • Grubber: You and me both! (Tempest looked at him)... That's not to say they aren't exciting. (Chuckles, and they continued watching as the ponies were ejected into an underwater cavern and after being deprived of air, sunk silently underwater until Skystar gave them bubbles to breath)...
  • Tempest: And now... We wait!
  • (Tempest): (Sighs) Well, at least growing up made me smarter.

Later...

  • (Novo): (They continued watching) You don't deserve to be one of us! (She transformed them back into ponies, and then gave them bubble helmets again to breath)... I suggest you get back to the surface while you still can before those bubbles expire!
  • (Pinkie): TWILIGHT, HOW COULD YOU?!?
  • (Twilight): GIRLS!... Let's just save our breath and get out of here! We don't need these... COWARDS anyway! (Her words shocked Novo, Skystar, and the seaponies as they left)...
  • (Novo):... (Upon seeing the seaponies looking at her and feeling like she was acting like an unreasonable coward, she left to avoid their faces)...
  • (Skystar):... (She looked as the ponies left and followed her mother)...
  • Grubber: Ohhh-ho-ho-ho, Tempest, you sly dog! The messes you tend to make even if you don't directly cause them!
  • Tempest: Oh, trust me, this mess is just getting started!
  • (Tempest): Oh, dear!

Later, again...

  • (Twilight): WELL, MAYBE I WOULD'VE BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT FRIENDS LIKE YOU!! (Pinkie gasped at those words and the others stood silent and the hurt 5 were disappointed and heartbroken as they left)... Pinkie... I-
  • (Pinkie): *Sniff*... I just can't talk to you right now! (The others left either upset or appalled at Twilight for her words, and left Twilight and a devastated Spike to separate)
  • Tempest: EXACTLY as I planned! She destroyed her own friendships!
  • Grubber:... Never doubted you for a second!
  • Tempest: SUUUURE! Just get the zeppelin ready and set a course to grab her!
  • Grubber: Done! (He left)
  • (Tempest):... (Sighs)... I can't believe I've been doing this to these poor souls... All because I wanted to mature and get my horn back! The Storm King really did blinded me that badly. (She shifted to the next event)...
  • Storm King: Now I truly AM the Storm King! And the entire world, will bow, to my ba-ba-ba-BOOM, BABY!!!
  • Tempest: (As Future Tempest watched) Yes, yes, you are every bit as powerful as I promised, sire, now, restore my horn, and I swear to use my magic to serve you-
  • Storm King: (Cackles with a crackle of lightning) Who CARES about your dinky little unicorn horn? (Pushes her away)
  • Tempest: But, we, we had an agreement!
  • Storm King: GET WITH THE PROGRAM! I USED you! It's kinda what I do! (Fires at her as she knocked him and herself off as she was being pulled into the tornado, and watched as Twilight saved her)
  • Twilight: HOLD ON!
  • Tempest:... Why are you saving me?
  • Twilight:... Because this, is what friends do. (She pulls her down safely)
  • Storm King: Awww, isn't that just so sweet? (Cackles) Yeah. (Aims his staff)... See ya.... (He was then plowed in by the Mane Five and Spike as Tempest and her Future self watched them reach for the staff) (Storm King plowed out of the rubble) The staff, belongs, to ME!! (He climbed up after the staff) NO! THAT'S MY STAFF!! (He reaches the top) MINE!! MINE!! (Jumped for it)
  • Twilight: NOO!! (She grabs the staff causing Storm King to jump through the window blowing him and Twilight into the tornado screaming)
  • Pinkie: TWILIGHT!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
  • (Tempest):... (Sighs) Those girls really are too inseparable for harsh words. (Pinkie sobbed as the storm cleared and Twilight came back with the Staff as her friends cheered)
  • Pinkie: GROUP HUG!! (They hugged and Future Tempest watched as her past self noticed Storm King with an Obsidian Orb and ran for them)
  • Tempest: Jumps over the Mane Six) NOOO!! (She took the hit as she and Storm King turned to stone in slow-motion as Storm King's petrified body fell and shattered upon impact while the Mane Six saved Tempest's body)
  • Rainbow Dash: Whoa. I can't believe she did that.
  • Twilight:... I can. (They used the staff to depetrify her)...
  • (Tempest): (Smiles) Well good riddance to him. (She then shifted to Songbird's song as she sees Twilight finding her past self alone in the corner as the two approached her)...
  • Tempest:... That's one thing that never changes around here... A party!
  • Twilight:... Well, I hope you'll stay. More friends are definitely merrier!
  • Tempest:... But, um... My horn!
  • Twilight: You know... Your horn is pretty powerful. Just like the pony it belongs to.
  • Tempest:... I, DID tell you I wanted to show everypony in Equestria what I can do, right?
  • (Tempest):... (Sighs)... I can't remember the last time I actually USED that native word. (She watched as her past self used her horn to create a firework that the two, and even Tempest, smiled at)
  • Pinkie:... Nice touch, Tempest!
  • Tempest: Actually... That's not my real name.
  • (Tempest):... (Sighs) Or so I thought!
  • Pinkie: ooOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!! WHAT IS IT?!?
  • Tempest: (Whispers in her ear)... It's Fizzlepop Berrytwist!
  • Pinkie: (She gasped heavily) Okay, that is, THE MOST AWESOME NAME, EVEEEEEEEEEEEEERRR!!!
  • (Tempest):... I can somewhat agree.... I would've preferred a childhood name like that as opposed to... My awful beginnings! (She sobbed tears of joy as she joined in listening to Songbird's song)... Well... I may've been awful... But I grew up enough... To be somepony worth saving!...

Tempest's Subconscious Future

  • (Tempest):... Oh... I hope this isn't... An inevitable future! Or at least, something that CAN be stopped!
  • Storm King: (Chuckles) You think you can beat me so easily? Well, try THIS on for size! (Aphelion and Hidden showed up corrupted)
  • Tempest:... MOTHER! SISTER!
  • Aphelion:... We are VERY, VERY, DISAPPOINTED IN YOU, TEMPEST!
  • Tempest:... What?
  • Twilight: What?
  • (Tempest): No, mother, please! (Tries to confront Aphelion) You don't really mean that- (She ends up phasing through as this music played as the three confessed)

The Lion King OST - 09 - King of Pride Rock (Score)

  • Aphelion: Oh, don't play dumb, you know what I mean! Surely you've regained SOME memory after this whole thing! Do these ponies even KNOW how you ended up in Old Drungar to begin with?
  • Twilight: Tempest, what is she talking about?
  • Aphelion: Aahhh, so you HAVEN'T told them your little secret. Well, daughter, now's your chance to tell them! Tell them, HOW DID YOU END UP IN OLD DRUNGAR, AND HOW DID I END UP IN THIS WRECK?!?
  • Tempest:... I tried to confront Storm King as a child... Because I wanted to grow up. (The heroes were surprised)...
  • Hidden:... Please tell me you're joking! Did you REALLY do that, sister?
  • Tempest:... (Sighs) It's too true! (The music climaxed)
  • Aphelion: YOU SEE?!? SHE HAS NOT GROWN UP IN THE SLIGHTEST!! SHE'S STILL, A CHILD!
  • Tempest: NO! I WAS TRYING, REALLY!
  • Aphelion: IF IT WEREN'T FOR YOU, WE'D STILL BE HAPPY COMMANDERS! IT'S THANKS TO YOUR IMMATURITY THAT WE'RE RUINED! DO YOU DENY IT!?
  • Tempest: NO!
  • Aphelion: THEN YOU'RE NOTHING! YOU SHOULD BE IN THE HANDS OF STORM KING! HE SHOWED US THAT I'M TOO WRECKED, AND HIDDEN WAS TOO BETRAYED TO BE WITH PRED ANYMORE! AND IT'S ALL, YOUR, FAULT!
  • Tempest: (Her astral self was watching in horror at what was happening) NO, I'M NOTHING LIKE THAT!!!
  • Aphelion: Oh, Tempest, you're in trouble again! But this time, no hero will be there to save you! Your mother was dead and turned up in the Council's doorsteps and ruined! Hidden was wondering how I got this way since Storm King kicked the info out of me, PUTTING ME THROUGH HELL, TO DO IT! And NOW EVERYONE, KNOWS, WHY! (The other Tempest tripped and grabbed onto the ledge of the zeppelin)
  • Twilight: TEMPEST!!
  • Storm King: OHHHHH, SUSPENSE!! I WANNA RECORD THIS MOMENT!!
  • Lord Shen: OH, WILL YOU SHUT UP?!?
  • Tempest: (She was hanging for dear life above the ocean below)... MOTHER... HELP ME!
  • Aphelion:... Why should I? Why should ANY of these people help you? You got us in this mess to begin with! YOU MENTALLY MURDERED YOUR OWN MOTHER!
  • Rainbow Dash: LADY, DON'T EXAGGERATE THAT S***, SHE DIDN'T KNOW BETTER BACK THEN!
  • Aphelion: Well, neither does she now! She trusted the one person that got her here to begin with, amnesia aside! She should've known he was nothing but trouble, and now, she let her mother and daughter agree that the only one we could turn to was him!
  • Tempest: THAT'S JUST CORRUPTION! PLEASE, JUST HELP- (Aphelion grabbed her hooves as she screamed)
  • Aphelion:... Long live THE STORM KING! (She kicked him down as she grabbed another ledge)
  • Twilight: NO!!
  • Storm King: (Cackles) KILLED BY HER OWN DISAPPROVING MOTHER!... HOW DELIGHTFUL!
  • Applejack:... You are going to pay for this, Storm King!
  • Storm King: Well, that's what happens when you mess with me! (He blasts a powerful energy at them as they were knocked around and launched across the area, struggling to get back on the zeppelin as Tempest was trying to get back on as Aphelion climbed down and found her)
  • Aphelion: LEAVING SO SOON?!? (The two fought as best as they could as the subconscious Tempest watched in horror)
  • (Tempest): No! NOOO!! NOOOOOOO!!! MOTHER, DON'T!!!
  • Aphelion: I HAD BEEN THROUGH HELL TRYING TO SAVE YOU, SO I CAN TALK YOU DOWN FOR BEING A NAUGHTY GIRL!
  • Tempest: YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND! YOU WERE RIGHT! I WAS ACTING LIKE A CHILD! I WANTED TO GROW UP, SO I DECIDED IF I WAS WORTH FIGHTING!
  • Aphelion: WELL, YOU DID IT, AT THE COST OF ME! I COULD'VE MADE YOU INTO THE SOLDIER YOUR FATHER WANTED OUT OF YOU! BUT INSTEAD, YOU LET YOURSELF TURN INTO THE NEAR-SAME WRECK AS ME! AND FOR THAT, YOU WILL PAY WITH YOUR LIFE! I HAVE ANOTHER DAUGHTER FOR ME TO RAISE THE RIGHT WAY!
  • Tempest: (She was sobbing)... Mother, please, don't do this!... I love you!
  • Aphelion:... (She hesitated, but the platform she was on was weakening as she started to fall)
  • Tempest: NO! (She grabbed her in time, as the Lodgers, fighting their hardest against Storm King's forces, saw this happening)...
  • Aphelion:... I DON'T NEED YOUR HELP, YOU LITTLE BRAT!
  • Tempest: I don't care what you say... You're still my mother!... And I don't want my little sister to be raised by a father who will turn her into a monster!... Please, mother!... Just... Just trust me!... We can be a family again! (The visiting Tempest is watching as Aphelion was finally cured of the mental pain within her)
  • Aphelion:... (She was crying)... Thank you, Tempest! You grew up more than I believed you wouldn't!
  • ???: AWWW, ISN'T THAT JUST SWEET?!? (Storm King came in with Hidden cackling) Yeah! (He pointed his staff at them)... See ya! (He charges his staff up as it exploded, launching the two into the ocean, and threw Hidden with them as they fell, and then he caused a storm that stirred up the water into fatal deadly levels as their deaths were obscured by blacken waters, the heroes ended up making one final blast with the Rainbow Power as they blasted the Zeppelin out of the sky) AHHH!!!... (The Zeppelin was falling towards the Storm Kingdom)... GRRRGHHHH!!!... IF I DIE, I'M TAKING SOME OF YOU WITH ME! (He cast a storm around the zeppelin trapping all inside, including Capper, Celaeno and her crew, and the Justice Guardians within)... FOR THE HONOR OF THE STORM CLAAAAAAN! (The Storm Kingdom and the zeppelin all exploded upon impact)
  • (Tempest)/Much of the Heroes: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! (The Kingdom was in flames as everything was destroyed, and they discovered Tempest, Aphelion, and Hidden's bleeding bodies washing ashore, as Shifu checked their pulse)
  • Shifu:... They're all dead!
  • Grubber:... Temp... No!... (He came up to her)... She, was the one friend I ever had in living a life without any, since I was always a loser to my hometown... AND I WAS GONNA SHARE A VICTORY CAKE WITH HER!! (He brings out a cake with crude icing drawing of Tempest and Grubber on it that reads 'Best Friends 4Ever' as he shed a tear that dripped onto the cake and he cried)
  • Icky:... How do you think we feel? The Justice Guardians, Cap, and those pirate parrots got creamed too!
  • Gazelle:... (She got determined)... I am not letting them go like this! (Readies the Uniter Blade at the bodies before her) I'm bringing all but the Storm King back!
  • Pang Bing: (She gasps) Gazelle, no! You can't! That would risk overloading the Uniter Blade! It could cost you your life!
  • Gazelle: I have no choice!... Without them... You all won't be able to save Equestria again properly!... Pang... I'm proud to have been your mentor... Despite your pansexuality. (She sacrificed herself as her energy allowed all heroes that were killed to be brought back to life as many of the heroes sobbed)...
  • Tempest: (She and her mother and sister, as well as the others except Storm King were healed)... We... What happened? (She noticed Gazelle's Uniter Blade blackened and powerless)... Oh, no!
  • (Tempest): (She was shocked by what happened)... That... That was... That was thoughtful!... A sacrifice to heal all the fallen heroes!
  • Skipper:... A moment of silence... To honor our fallen! (Everyone cried) Just-just, think of monster trucks!
  • (Tempest):... (She cried until her future self stepped in)
  • Tempest:... (She touched the Uniter Blade, as it caused it to glow in energy, as it not only converted her, but restored her horn, her wounds, and anything inflicted upon her)
  • Twilight:... Tempest?
  • Tempest:... Call me... Fizzlepop Berrytwist now!... I... I am now the new Uniter Princess!... I wish to take Gazelle's mantle!... I shall pay her family and native friends tribute as I take it!... I hope you are proud of me for growing up a last, mother!
  • Aphelion:... (She hugged her crying hysterically, and Hidden joined)...
  • (Tempest):... (She couldn't help but hug and cry with them)...

Reality

  • Tempest: (She was crying in her sleep as well and she finally woke up)... Oh... God!... That was... That was REALLY enlightening!
  • Grubber: I'd say so! You were at least crying less than Twilight. So, what did you see?
  • Tempest:... I saw... Something I should've taken care of since the beginning!... I have a confession to make!... I... I wanna explain how I ended up in Old Drungar!... I feel I can't win without doing so!
  • Twilight: Why? What did you see?
  • Tempest:... I saw it all happen before I ended up in Old Drungar. I remember everything now. I know why I am ruined and I have all the answers now! It was all seen, from my birth place in Canterlot, to my foster home in Old Drunger.... Then I saw... I saw how much I grew up afterward, up until you showed me that my kind can be more than parties!... Then I saw... I saw a future where that tormented pain of the past... Won over me, and caused many of us to die, including me, mom, and Hidden... And Gazelle sacrificed her life to heal them and us... Then... I took up her mantle as the Uniter Princess!
  • Gazelle:... Aye-aye-aye!
  • Duke: I know!
  • Lord Shen: At least it wasn't worthy of a crazy tearjerker fanfiction like Twilight's!
  • Twilight: Why... What did you do that caused all that?
  • Tempest:... When I was a kid... Living with my mother... I didn't wanna be a child again after realizing how foolish I was when Mom scolded me harshly for actin that way... So I decided to grow up, by helping my mom stop Storm King and save my dad... But when fighting him off and believing he killed mom... I caused a discharge that knocked me into the ocean after the head injury.
  • Rarity:... My word!
  • Rainbow Dash:... That's... Kind of awesome? At least you grew up, in style!
  • Applejack: If you can even CALL her past growing up in style!
  • Twilight:... Tempest... I had no idea... You felt this way! Is... Is this why you wanted your kind to see what you were seeing?
  • Tempest: With the memory loss... I didn't know that it was THAT which created the instinct to not only grow on my own, but decide that I should grow alone when I was shunned by Spring and Rain!
  • Grubber: Wow!... That is SUCH a bummer! And I thought my brother was a unfortunate jackass when HIS life was in the toilet.
  • Tempest:... However... Now that I remember everything... I have ONE question:... Why was my mom so harsh on me? It can't be because she was embarrassed to be seen with me... It can't be because of her career... Hearing her scold the words that made me a vagabond into my head at last... Sounded like she had experienced it before, and knew the concept far better than me.
  • Twilight:... Well... Aphelion DID sound like she went through trauma like yours, and not just from being a commander. I can agree that she had to have a DEEPER meaning behind trying to beat the info into your mind without physical abuse, because she felt... Like you were having some kind of bad influence on her way of thinking.
  • Fluttershy:... You don't think... She had a similar past of feeling like she was better off alone, do you?
  • Tempest:... There's only one way to find out. I HAVE to rescue her. Everything I've been through, with the memories of my past finally coming back to me... I HAVE to redeem myself to her, Hidden, EVEN Spring and Glitter.... Speaking of which... After this... Remind me to apologize and make up for them! I caused so much pain!
  • Twilight:... You said you left Old Drungar after they dumped you.
  • Tempest: Not at first, actually. Given what they likely told you, I need to explain the full story.

Flashback...

  • (Tempest): See... Since I lost my horn and they were too shy to play ball with me... I wanted to leave and wandered the nearest areas to try and start, but when I turned out lost... I gave myself one last hope to see if I wasn't completely wrong. And they started to grow used to me more... Despite not knowing they wanted to stay away from me, because they were trying their hardest to be supportive friends. But... Then came the day when they came to my home and told me they were accepted to the School for Gifted Unicorns after passing the entrance exam before the deadline expired. That was why I had to say one final goodbye, by finally being openly honest, and expressing my true emotions. After truths and secrets were harming us every time we spoke them... They were just too much, and I destroyed that train station in a mental breakdown!... I... After the truth was finally revealed and I was convinced I was right this whole time... I finally felt that I was better off alone and ran away from not just my foster home... But Equestria as a whole, as I felt our philosophies of friendship would be a crutch. It was NOT easy for me out there, either. With my instinct to grow up never relenting... I went back to Equestria once or twice like when I had to replenish my resources arriving in Appleloosa and left in fear when my broken horn was exposed... Then went to New Drungar and ended up in debt to a restaurant owner when I lost the bits I needed to pay for my meal... And left with a little middle-finger to them.
  • (Spike): Oh, God, you didn't seek out monsters on them, did you?
  • (Tempest): Oh, no! I was NOT that cold-hearted even back then!... I just did something just as distraught to them. (She had magically defaced a statue of their founder as they screamed cartoonishly)... I mean, people in Old Drungar said he was, and thy quote, a 'jackass', so... I did them a favor for raising me despite the fact I left them.
  • (Twilight): Well, at least nobody got hurt.
  • (Tempest): Anyway, after said mess started... Then after that... There came the day when I wandered Bone Dry Desert, and found the Misfortune Malachite, met Grubber, went to Klugetown to chill down after an exhausting night travel, asked for a ride from a good pony named Rambler... Then ended up encountering Storm King. It was THERE when we made the deal that he'd restore my horn if I gave him the power within Equestria. It took a lot of effort including the attack on Hippogrifia, but eventually, after years of training and learning the strengths and weaknesses of our opponents... We tried to find a good spot hidden in the clouds to begin our attack, and, well... The rest is history.

Present

  • Tempest:... But now it's time to put the past behind me!... I will no longer let my need to grow up and get real AND need to fend for myself get to me anymore.... I wanna redeem myself! I wanna do MORE than grow up!... I wanna be better than a grown-up! I... I WANNA MATTER!
  • Twilight:... Well... You may get that chance! We're both enlightened... And we'll get through this together! (The two hugged)
  • Discord: Oh, that's right! (Starts hugging everyone to their discomfort, even Twilight and Tempest) Group Hug! BIG GROUP HUG!! OOOOOOHH!! You mind if I kiss the monkey? (Kissed Monkey to his disgust and hacked a hairball) BLAHHH, OOH, HAIRBALL!!
  • Lord Shen: STOP GENIEING US, AND LET US GO, YOU IDIOT!!
  • Discord: OH, FINE, PARTY POOPER! (He did so)
  • Pinkie: (The Charwoman spoke)... She says that you two now possess the power to use the same spell. It may prove useful in case someone should be mentally tormented or corrupted.
  • Twilight: (The two looked at each other)... It is! It'll help save Aphelion! And it will help Hidden grow up and become a better pony!... Or cure them should they be corrupted.
  • Celaeno: Well, what're we waiting for? Let's show them how it's done!
  • Discord: You heard the pirate bird Gamora, let's kick some Storm King butt! You ready, Tempy?
  • Tempest:... I don't know where to start, really. I need to be at my best, and it's gonna take a LOT to even get the Storm King and his family to flinch given that Staff of Subjunctas!
  • Twilight: Well, lucky for you... You have friends to help you make it farther than ever! They may be ridiculous... But they are ridiculously reliable, and the heroes Equestria need, if not want!
  • Stratus: Yes! We got this together! (They got ready as everyone sung this, with changed and revised lyrics)

  • Grubber:... Well said!

The Charge of the Guardians/Storm King's New Brief Pawns

Storm Kingdom

  • Storm King: (Thundering noises and raging screams were heard) YOU TWO ARE SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT!! (Valkyrie and Thunder were sitting in his presence) I need CONQUERORS!! AND GOOD ONES AT THAT!! AND ALL I HAVE IS MY STUPID SISTER WHO JUST LOST HER THUNDERBIRD, AND MY BROTHER WHO RAN AWAY LIKE A CHICKEN CAUSE OF A BUNCH OF KEYBLADE WIELDERS!!!
  • Thunder: Brother, you KNOW how it went last time I took on someone like that! I ALMOST DIED!
  • Valkyrie: And they killed Morgen! I tried to fight to honor her, but they pepper sprayed me!
  • Storm King: UGGHH! You're both FAILURES! This is NOT what father expected from the BOTH of you! I come back to recover the family from what it was reduced to, and yet you don't take the time to GROW?!? (The two tried to speak up) No! I want you two dunderheads, OFF OF MY ZEPPELIN, AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU COULD'VE DONE TO AVOID ALL THIS!!
  • Valkyrie Queen: Brother, wait, wait- (Storm King summoned a wind and blew Thunder King and Valkyrie Queen off the zeppelin and crashing back into the Castle)
  • Storm King: (Sighs)... Once again, Stormy... You want something to be done right, DO IT YOURSELF!! (He started to cast a spell with his staff that allowed his giant zeppelin to make all the storms across his watch merge and get stronger, increasing the effects to destructive levels)... I may've failed so far, but by threatening to go Day After Tomorrow on everyone in the land and beyond, even THEY cannot resist! So, let's get this storm started!... (Sighs) Trademark well spent!
  • Cobra: You sure they won't be so pissed about causing global destruction that they'll take this to your doorstep?
  • Storm King: With the hostages I have? (He shows Aphelion, Hidden, Shineflare, Straton, Pred, Axe-Rella, Sharp-Pay, and Chain in the dungeon)... They won't even THINK about getting to me, as I will have them purged! Unerneath their hooves and/or feet, there's a water trap connected to the ocean that will drown them!
  • Mirage: You DO know that people like Tempest know about your place inside-and-out, correct? They could use that info against you.
  • Storm King: HAH! The knowledge didn't matter before, it won't now. I picked THIS location for a reason. In an eternal monsoon, it provides me the adequate setting as the Storm King! The storm makes it hard for even Tempest to infiltrate the Castle! People have done that before even WITH info, INCLUDING THE GUARDIANS OF HARMONY, and what was left was still laughable and recorded by my sta... D'AW, S***! THEY DESTROYED ALL THAT WHEN THEY TOOK MY STAFF!!! F*****G PONIES!!!
  • Chrysalis: (Sighs) Well, you're still as competent as my mother, even if you are more comical.
  • Storm King: Well, I got an Enenra into my ranks before he betrayed me to that Celaeno pirate and I tossed him off as he left to join those filthy Guardians! THEN Grubber along with him later on! I can handle a bunch of misfit gooberbrains!
  • Muncher: Yeah, he saved me from a Leo back in Constellatia, so he knows how to kick a mythical beast's ass even if it's the size of a titan! He just lunges for the titan's balls, and boom, they're history! So don't diss him!
  • Storm King: So, if they think they're not gonna end up like those guys I had embarrassed before, then they've got another thing co- (A bugle sound was heard as Bushwoolies came in doing this)
Funny lol ice age 4

Funny lol ice age 4

  • Hades: The f***? (The Bushwoolies rode on small furbobs as they shouted wildly in battle, but in the distance, they were so tiny, a butterfly landed on them, causing everyone to laugh out loud, until the bugling Bushwoolie got out a bigger horn and blew it as the Guardians of Harmony and the heroes came in, and sang this while beginning to humiliate and chase off the Villain Leage as Storm King got angry)

Happy Feet Two Soundtrack - 7 Rawhide

  • Storm King: (As they were losing) EEERGGH! THAT, DOES IT! (He pulls the lever to the dungeon trap doors, but they didn't work, and he pulled it rapidly and it still didn't work)... WHAT?!?
  • ???: I STILL KNOW A THING OR TWO ABOUT DUPING YOUR PLACE AND GUARDS, STORM KING! (Nimbus was seen) YOU STILL HAVE A LOT TO LEARN ABOUT TRUSTING YOUR OWN MEN!
  • Storm King: STRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIFEE!!! GUYS, TAKE CARE OF- (The Villain Leaguers were gone)... THE F***'D THEY GO?!? (The Leaguers were seen running away like cowards) WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?
  • Chrysalis: We're getting OUT OF HERE! THE LODGERS ARE TOO STRONG AT THIS POINT THAT WE HAVE TO BOLT! (The Villain League evacuated their ranks as they were getting beaten)
  • Storm King: COME BACK HERE, YOU COWARDS, DON'T LEAVE ME!! WE HAD A DEAL!! YOU PROMISED BE A PERCENTAGE IN POWER!!! YOU PROMISED ME SOMETHING BETTER THAN WHAT MY FATHER COULD GIVE ME!!!
  • Rourke: (As he got all his Shocktroopers out through the magic portal) WELL, NEXT TIME, GET IT IN WRITING! (He ran off)
  • Storm King: YOU SONS OF SYLPHS!!!
  • Cobra: OUR APOLOGIES STORM KING, BUT I'M AFRAID WE'LL HAVE TO RECONSIDER OUR PARTNERSHIP! NOTHING IS WORTH IT WITH THIS NUMBER OF FORCES!!! NICE DOING BUSINESS WITH YOU ANYWAY!! UNTIL NEXT TIME, IF THERE IS ONE! (The Leaguers ran away)
  • Storm King:... YOU GODDAMN DEMON-WORSHIPPERS!! (Shrugs) STUPID, THOSE GUYS START A SECOND CARTOONIAN WAR, AND THEY RUN AWAY?!? What did I expect?!? THAT'S WHAT I GET FOR TRUSTING THEM! THEY COWER AWAY WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT WHEN THEIR ENEMIES GET TOO HECTIC!! (Shrugs) Well, guess it's time for me to get two certain someones I KNOW won't desert me so easily. (Storm King went into his lair as his minions began to fight the Guardians)
  • Twilight: (The Guards overwhelmed the heroes until some new faces came in: The Guardian Elders)... GUYS!
  • Stratus: FATHER!
  • Cirrus: Justice and harmony are served!
  • Twilight: But, why did you-
  • Starry Pony: Your inside double-agent and aid, are VERY persuasive! (Monson came in fighting in armor with an Equestrian color style)
  • Fluttershy: MONSON! You little tyke! (She kissed him as he felt lovestruck) Thank you!
  • Lord Shen: Fluts, you KNOW he's got a crush on you, so don't indulge him like that!
  • Twilight: But, how did you get free of Storm King?
  • ???: Because of us! (Spring and Glitter came in with Novo, Skystar, Nix, Spellstone, Periwinkle, and a blue and red, orange, and brown-haired pony)
  • Tempest: GLITTER! SPRING!
  • Twilight: HEADMASTER PERIWINKLE! GUYS!
  • Fluttershy: NOVO! SKYSTAR!
  • Spring: Hey, Fizzy! Miss us?
  • Tempest:... Yes, I did, even if I didn't wanna admit it! I'm sorry I-
  • Novo: MAKE UP LATER, SAVE THE WORLD NOW!
  • Mira: (They all handled the Storm Guards around them) QUICKLY! CUT OFF THE STORM KING'S CONTROL OF THE STORM!
  • Rainbow Dash: WE GOT THIS! (She, Thundra, Novo, Skystar, and the other ones capable of weather manipulation used their powers to cleverly cut off the Storm King's access to the storm clouds)
  • Storm King: WHAT?!?
  • Fluttershy: LET'S MOVE! (They continued fighting as they leapt into action as Tempest charged in with Grubber riding her in slo-mo with the Guardians and Monson)
  • Grubber: (In slo-mo) WEEEE LOOOOVE YOOOOU GUUUUUUYYYYYSSSS!! (Tempest blasted explosive magic that blinded some guards and blew others away as they continued fighting)
  • Napoleon: CHAARRRRGE! (Background trumpets were heard)
  • Icky: (The Storm Guards got tossed around) Excuse me, pardon moi, hot potato, one side, one side, coming through, douchebags!
  • Storm King: GRRRRGHHH!!! TONITRUS! ALTUS! MAKE YOURSELVES USEFUL! IF THEY GET HERE, YOU'LL BOTH BE DEAD AS MUD! I'VE GOT... A backup plan to attend to! (He went off)
  • Valkyrie Queen:... For the record, I blame you for this!
  • Thunder King: YOU AND ME BOTH! JUST SHUT UP AND LET'S DO THIS! (They went out)

Storm King's Dungeon

  • The Storm King: (He came up to Hidden Shadow and Aphelion)
  • Straton: WELL, IF IT ISN'T THE ABOMINABLE BUMBLE HIMSE- (Storm King zapped him) HEY-NANNEE-NANNEE-NANNEE!!! (He fainted)
  • Hidden: What do you want now?!?
  • Storm King: Nothing personal ladies, but, I kinda have an emergency, and... (He points his staff at them)... I kinda need to borrow your wills for.... The rest of eternity! (The duo and the other hostages looked shocked as a flash dominated the room)

Outside

  • Tempest: (She and the others continued fighting until much of the others were overwhelmed)...
  • Twilight: GUYS!
  • Tigress: DON'T WORRY ABOUT US! GO! WE'LL CATCH UP!
  • Tempest: (The Equestrian heroes nodded and went off as the others fended off the Guards)

Storm King's Throne Room

  • Tempest: (She and the Equestrian heroes burst in) STORM KING! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
  • Storm King: Really? Because I still got SO much on my bucket list to do! Row my lawn, fix my car, get some Taco Bell for the Missus and the Kids, and..... (Darkly) Revenge.
  • Tempest: Spare us your usual nonsene, Storm King, nobody's laughing!
  • Grubber: Yeah! I've got a cream pie with your name on it!
  • Muncher: Oh, do you, bro? MINE'S bigger!
  • Grubber: STAY OUT OF THIS, MUNCHER!!!
  • Muncher: NEVAAAAAAAAAAAAA-
  • Storm King/Tempest: SHUT UP!
  • Tempest:... Release my mother and little sister, and nobody gets hurt!
  • Storm King: Ohhhhhh, sorry, your abit late for that! See, Aphelion and Hidden are now long gone.
  • Twilight: WHAT DID YOU DO TO THEM?!?
  • Storm King: Don't take my word for it. Ask them yourselves. (They were shown to be as corrupted as Tempest was and donning armor like Tempest's)
  • Tempest: MOTHER! SISTER!
  • Skipper: Oh, no, he didn't!
  • Muncher: Oh, yes he di-id!
  • Storm King: They are now under my command! I reminded them of what they needed to know, to truly understand why it's best to support ME! You may not see it... But you USED to! I can STILL fix your little boo-boo and stop you from crying like the little filly you were when we first met! I can still make you cry without even lifting a finger!
  • Icky: You know, for a guy voiced by an adult-oriented voice actor, it's such a letdown you end up sounding less like Sabertooth and more like TFS Frieza.
  • Muncher: Does it look like anybody cares, birdbrain?
  • Icky: That, sir, is racist!
  • Muncher: Nope! It's speciesist!... There's a difference.
  • Storm King: ANYWAY... As I was saying, once I get Tempest back, I'll have the complete set! Esepically because not only to have the best spy in Equestia, but I also got the mare that produced her and Tempest! I have GOOD faith in this investment!
  • Aphelion:... (Her eyes were still slightly red from crying, but was now tainted with red flashes in the irises)... I'm amazed you survived after you DELIBERATELY DISOBEYED ME, TEMPEST!!!
  • Hidden: (Her horn sparked with magic more powerful than Tempest's)... You were QUITE the suicidal sis, sis!
  • Tempest: Mother, Hidden! You have to snap out of it!
  • Storm King: Yyyyyeaaaaaah, talking to them ain't gonna work! Both you and they are gonna be mine!
  • Tempest: NO!
  • Storm King: Hey, this is pretty much your own fault, Temp! Yes, I betrayed you in the end, but that's because I believed you were only in it for that broken horn of yours!
  • Tempest: That's because I WAS! I SAID OVER AND OVER, THAT I WAS A VAGABOND! I WAS NOT GOING TO SERVE YOU FOREVER, AND YOU KNEW IT!
  • Storm King: The only way you quit the Storm Clan is MY way! That's EXACTLY why I refused to give you your horn back, and had to get rid of you! I don't appreciate when I'm being used as a means to an end! But... That said, I admire your power! The horn developed around the injury when you trained for the invasion of Equestria since you lost it to that Ursa Minor. It has unlocked potential just waiting to be released.
  • Grubber: That's what-
  • Muncher: YOU SAY "THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID", AND INTERRUPT HIM ONE MORE TIME, AND I'LL DROWN YOU IN CHOCOLATE!!!
  • Storm King:... Anyway, I realized that, with just the right spell, I could wipe all that away, and make you the pony you know you and your kind were meant to be! Join me, and I can make that horn not only better again, but STRONGER! If not... Well... I warned you I'd do far worse than the loss of a horn, and frankly, having a corrupted family that TOPS that for miles!
  • Tempest: YOU BASTARD! (Before they attacked, they were trapped in a cage)
  • Rainbow Dash: YOU CHEAT!!
  • Storm King: 5,999!
  • Rainbow Dash: DON'T YOU TFS FRIEZA ME, D***-PUMP!!! (He zapper her) YAYAYAYAYAYA!!!
  • Shifu: (He and the other heroes arrived) ALRIGHT! STORM KING, IT'S OVE- (They were trapped in cages as well)
  • Icky:... YOU CHEAT!
  • Storm King: AND 6000! HERE'S YOUR PRIZE! (He magically shed off all his feathers)
  • Icky: EEP!!! (Storm King laughed)... THANKS FOR FURTHER PROVING THAT YOUR AN ASSHOLE?!
  • Tempest: Mother, Hidden, you need to know that whatever Storm King made you think, it's not true!
  • Aphelion: Oh, on the contrary, daughter! He's more right than you've come to believe! We have all we ever wanted in his army! I have you again, and Hidden has the chance to be something better since she was born! She admitted herself she had little hopes when working for Pred!
  • Applejack: THAT'S CLEARLY THE CORRUPTION TALK!
  • Hidden: (Cackles) You think so? I used to have a friend when I was in an orphanage! A young dragon abandoned from a magic school in a distant magic school. But... I didn't want to admit that to Pred, because if I did, he'd shun me.
  • Icky: Hey, if it helps, he's not that bad about it anymore. If anything, it'll show that Malevolent Flames was a bastard to fellow mythics as well.
  • Hidden: Him being reformed doesn't mean he is now without his bias. He still finds Taiku annoying when he shows up to do Easter Camaraderie!
  • Iago: Hey, to be fair, he has a habit of doing that too early for most people's liking. That sort've thing would be annoying, independently reguardless of his race.
  • Hidden: BESIDES THE POINT! He was the only thing close to a family I had since mother supposedly died. And to have him shun me, is like I was being disowned! But now, I am no longer afraid to admit that! I disowned HIM as my adopted father!
  • Thunderclap: That still sounds like corruption talk to me. Come on, you're a smart enough girl to know that he is no longer that bad about ponies being palsies with mythics.
  • Hidden: SILENCE!! THIS, is my family now! All we need, is you, Tempest! You don't wanna be a child again, right? THEN DON'T! Rejoin your family, now that you are the right age!
  • Tempest: AND YOU?!?
  • Hidden: I am roughly 15, AND my experience makes up for your naïve behavior as a filly! At least I don't sound like a cute little Elmer anymore! So, what do you say?
  • Tempest: I REFUSE! Storm killed our father!
  • Aphelion: Me and Perihelion were close to a divorce anyway!
  • Earl: That there's ONE HELL of a bombshell to drop right there, lady!
  • Aphelion: I didn't want him back regardless. I had a life that had a lot of dangers, and I learned a long time ago that anything can be a liability. So, daughter, know that this is our only true destiny! This is where we belong! After you clearly did a LOT of growing up, you're sure to understand!
  • Twilight: I know all those words you claim are lies! All that is just over-exaggerated because of your corruption. Hidden's secret is indeed true, but what she claimed is not completely true. And Aphelion? You loved your husband all too much! Even if you divorced, and if I sense you DO view things like a husband as a liability, you still cared about him too much to simply let him go! You two don't even know what you're thinking because Storm King is clouding your judgment!
  • Aphelion: Did he? We were ALREADY clouded of judgment! Storm King opened our eyes to the cruelties that can come from Equestria! AND YOU, TEMPEST?!? YOU LET YOURSELF GET THIS WAY!! IT WOULD'VE BEEN AVOIDED IF YOU HAD JUST LISTENED TO ME! BUT INSTEAD, YOU WANTED TO GROW UP IMMATURELY! YOU ASKED TOO MUCH OF ME, AND YOURSELF! I was the one who taught you everything you know, even if you didn't remember it! But you saw something I never did within our kind: We were wrong to waste our power frivolously on parties! You desecrate such a useful power with those roles!
  • Tempest: HEY, MAGIC CAN BE USED FOR MORE THAN DEFENSE!!! I was further blinded by Storm King's lies, BECAUSE WHEN I WAS IN OLD DRUNGAR, AFTER I LOST MY FRIENDS AND MY HORN, YOUR WORDS MADE A FEELING IN ME I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT MADE ME GROW UP WITH THE WRONG PERSPECTIVE!!! And Twilight fixed that, by making me see something I needed to see! It's Storm King! Whatever hell you were put through in the past, he's using that to manipulating you-
  • Aphelion: HUSH!... You need to see clearly! You still suffer the same problem that got you into the mess with Storm King in the beginning! You think it's easy to get what you want, and you have the skills to do so, BLIND by what is around you! Celestia and Luna were worthless, and so was their guard! Our homeland fell more times than even I can count! YOU HAVE CHANGED NOT AS YOU FORGOTTEN WHAT I TOLD YOU A LONG TIME AGO! You, MUST, OPEN YOUR EYES, AND LET IT GO, DAUGHTER! (She and Hidden sung this in a more powerful tone than Tempest, though she and the Lougers, Ponies, and friends remained unphased and unimpressed in some of them finding this song to be more of a slowdown when the finale is just around the corner, even though Tempest still felt sorry for her backstory.)
Open Up Your Eyes (Remix) My Little Pony The Movie

Open Up Your Eyes (Remix) My Little Pony The Movie

  • Tempest:... Okay, first off, it's not very original to use my song like that, legit talent and touching back story aside! If it was to get me to understand you more, then that's fine, but if it was also to coherse me, then in that reguard, it failed! Second, if you think you're going to get to me, then you've got another thing coming! I ALERADY know the method behind the madness! Not only are you corrupted, but I KNOW how it feels to be in your horseshoes, because we have the same insecurities! We both thought it was best to be on our own, but we learned through one way or another, that it's not always every pony for herself! You used to know that when you fell in love with dad! I TRIED to grow up like you wished! If I hadn't, I wouldn't even be this way! So again, I know you don't mean what you say! You're just jacked up on corruption that you're letting that past define you like it did me!
  • Icky: NOT TO MENTION THAT THE SONG WAS A TOTAL BIG-LIPPED ALLIGATOR MOMENT!!
A BIG LIPPED ALLIGATOR MOMENT

A BIG LIPPED ALLIGATOR MOMENT

  • Icky: All it does is prove to be a shoutout to the movie and doesn't move the plot any further other than a failed attempt of corruption. Seriously, even Mephelis from Sonic 06 would give that attempt two thumbs down! ALL YOU DID WAS WASTE TIME THAT SHOULD'VE BEEN SPENT ON GETTING STORMY'S ASS DEALT WITH!
  • Hidden:... Mom, why did we seriously think ANY of that was gonna work?!?
  • Aphelion: WELL PARDON ME IF I THOUGHT HER SONG WOULD GET TO HER, OR AT BEST MAKE HER UNDERSTAND THE PAIN I WENT THROUGH!
  • Icky: Oh, the heck with this! Gazelle?
  • Gazelle: Con placer! (She uses her powers to knock the two out using energetic boxing gloves)
  • Storm King: WHAT THE- That, THAT WASN'T SUPPOSE TO HAPPEN!!
  • Gazelle: Seriously, you forgot to get the Uniter Blade out. You were smart enough to confiscate it last time you caught us, AND smart enough to keep it from burning you.
  • Storm King:... (Shrugs) I don't know what I was expecting!
  • Gazelle: Well that's what happens when you try to re-evil someone who has no intentions of going back! (Breaks open the cage and frees everyone)... Though that's not to say their words don't hold meaning! Magic shouldn't be used just for fun, but many people like you take that for granted!
  • Storm King: WHAT?!?
  • Gazelle: It's clear what you're doing this for! You're doing this because you have a biased opinion on this world. You and your family, specifically your father, viewed this world as too cutesy and pacifist, that they cannot defend against threats like Mortuus! And you believe that you are the only one whose rule can protect from that danger! Tempest's mindset was clearly yours all along! It explains why you think of ponies as like what occurs in a little kid's show. But these ponies are more mature than you give them credit for. And if you cannot see that even after we destroyed Mortuus permanently, then you are clearly sociopathic! You still think ponies should be stronger than that.
  • Storm King: "WELL MAYBE I WOULDN'T FIND ACCOMPLISHMENTS LIKE THAT SO HARD TO BELIEVE, IF THEY WEREN'T SO CUTE?! And besides, wasn't Mortuus being destroyed mainly because of your Deu Ex Machina-ing? Cause that's more like him being destroyed by the weapon then the ponies themselves!"
  • Icky: "WELL WHO DID YOU THINK USED THAT DEU EX MACHINA, WISE-GUY!?"
  • Storm King: "I-...... Heh. Learn something new everyday."
  • Soothsayer: An understatement of all time. Point is, Gazelle is correct. Of course they're not going to be perfect. But then again, nobody is. Not even you. All you'll do under your rule is destroy for your own ego. You are evil, cruel, and unjust. This quest for global domination is only a delusional way to feed your own ego, and with your father's staff, it's become increased! Well, no more!
  • Twilight: And let me tell you what I learned since this whole thing started: Friendship is more than something worth fighting for. It's something that can make you see something brighter than just the joys the rest of this world has to offer. Friends can make your life a living adventure, they can offer the greatest of a bad situation. They can show you that life isn't always serious, and the best can be in every corner. They give you fulfillment in whatever you do, even if you feel there's no point, and when you feel that whatever consequences hit you will mentally torment you, you come to understand it further as you think long and hard about it, and not let the hurtfulness get to you. They-
  • Storm King: Bleh, spare me the frivolity, you little ponified Teletubby, you're boring me!
  • Twilight:... My point is, you're the one whose been holding me back this whole time. Not surprised to say the least. You thought that was gonna cripple me since Tempest made me feel wrecked for what I did wrong to my friends? Well, sometimes, the wounds you inflict upon the weak, heal, and they grow stronger as a result.
  • Storm King:... (He face-palms and growls) Awwww, crap, I'm in for it now!
  • Gazelle: Yeah, did you think we were stupid enough to not figure out your true goals, and the method to your madness? If we were, we would've been long gone at this point. You will be defeated again, Storm King!
  • Storm King: (Growls angrily) MUNCHER!!!
  • Muncher:... (He was like this)
Fuck This Shit I'm Out

Fuck This Shit I'm Out

  • Storm King: "... ONCE AGAIN, I HAVE AN ASSISENT BETRAY ME!!!! WHY?!?"
  • Muncher: I am NOT gonna stand up to someone with power like THAT! That's a mess waiting to happen! You're on your own, your highness! This can only end in tears! (He left)
  • Grubber:... Hmmph, what're ya gonna do now, Storming Voice?
  • Storm King:... OKAY, THAT'S IT!! FOR NOW ON, I'M STRICTLY A SOLO GUY!! NO MORE SIDEKICKS THAT ARE ARE EITHER GONNA FAIL, BETRAY ME, DO BOTH, OR FAIL FIRST, THEN BETRAY ME, THEN HELP HUMILIATE ME!! If you want something done right... (Aims with his staff)... Do it yourself!"
  • Gazelle: (She aims her Uniter Blade) Bring it on!
  • Storm King: "Oh seriously, is that, it's that a giant mishapen key? What, is that suppose to be a threat to-"
  • Gazelle smacks him right into the wall with it!
  • CRASH!
  • Storm King: "...... Okay...... NOW I'M GONNA HAVE TO TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY THEN?! AND I ENSURE YOU, YOU WON'T LIKE IT WHEN I TAKE THINGS SERIOUSLY?!"
  • Gazelle: Okay, before we start, you have a brother that fears keyblades and yet you don't know about what the Uniter Blade is?!
  • Storm King: "Hey just because my dinkus of a brother is interested in that "Kingdom Hearts" crap doesn't mean I have to!"
  • Gazelle:..... Well, at least that plothole's filled. Anyway, about your earlier comment, it would DEFINITELY be an excellent change of pace, enemigo! You are too sociopathic to take seriously! You and your family are too against the world around you to have ANY sense of understanding, because you view them as either fallible, or cutesy! Well, we will ensure that you pay for your sociopathic conquest, and for the impact you reaped on our friends! (She charged)
  • Storm King: ALRIGHT, I GUESS WE'RE DOING THIS NOW! (The two clashed)

Storm King's Defeat/The Battle Is Far From Over

(After defeating Storm, as well as Aphelion and Hidden and curing them from their corruption)

  • Tempest: (She fought off her mother and sister, and managed to use what she learned from the Bushwoolies how to cure corruption, and used it on the both of them, as they experienced visions of the past when they were happy, and what was reaped upon them, as well as what would happen if they continued, and they plopped down as they recovered)... Mother? Sister?
  • Aphelion: (She got up in a war-like fashion) GET BACK, YOU SAVAGE-... (She gasped to see Tempest)... (She sobbed)... TEMPEST! YOU'RE OKAY! (She hugged her)... OH, I MISSED YOU SO MUCH! WHAT HAPPENED?!?
  • Tempest: A lot! But I'm okay now. I... I'm SO sorry I let you get this way!... I... I just felt SO embarrassed for acting like a mare in a filly's body! I... I wanted to grow up, because I didn't wanna look like an embarrassment! I-
  • Aphelion: I know!... And I'm sorry I was so rough on you for that. I... I just didn't want you to throw your life away by killing yourself. But... You've certainly grown!... And... I'm just so happy you're back!
  • Tempest: Happy to BE back! (The two hugged)
  • Hidden:... It's nice to see you, big sister.
  • Tempest: Pleasure's all ours!
  • Storm King: (He continued fighting until Gazelle finally got him in a beam-lock as the powerful storm staff started to overpower the Uniter Beam) LIKE I SAID, UNITER PRINCESS, MY FATHER'S STAFF IS UNSTOPPABLE!
  • Gazelle: NOT, FOR LONG, IT WON'T!!! (She started to increase her power, and it started to slowly overcome his as it caused the staff itself to decrease in power)
  • Storm King: WHAT?!? (The many storms around the corners of Equestria from the Bushwoolies' land, Questra, Klugetown, Mount Aris, New Hippogrifia, and so on all started to vanish, and Equestria as well)... NO! NO, NO, NO, NO, NOOOO!! MY FATHER'S STRENGTH!!! DON'T GO!!!!... (The Staff fell part into nothing) NOOOOOO?!
  • Twilight: Well, so much for it being indestructable, Storm King... Turns out it's own power was the shorce of it's indestructablity. And frankly, stability. Without it, it withered away like he did. But it's newfound destruction's not the only thing that happened. We made it so you can not only be as strong as you were the last time, but ensure it's controlled enough for us to ensure you can't go too far again.
  • Bagheera: And with us around, since you, again, foolishly dragged us into this charade, we will be more than enough to make sure you cause no more trouble! You're finished!
  • Storm King:... NOT UNTIL I GET WHAT YOU STOLE FROM ME, I'M NOT! It's bad enough you humilated me?! NOW YOU HUMILIATED MY DECEASED FATHER?! NOT COOL?! NOT COOL?! AND YOU GUYS ARE THE HEROES HERE?!
  • Pang Bing: "It is nothing against your father personally, even if he is likely to be no less different then you. But in the end, it's your own fault dragging his staff into a battle against those that would ultamately be your own undoing."
  • Storm King: GRRRGGHHH!!! IN THE NAME OF MY FATHER-
  • Icky: More like the name of your ego.
  • Storm King: BUT MOSTLY MY FATHER, I WILL DO WHAT I CAN TO MAKE THIS STAFF STRONGER, SO THAT EVEN YOU WON'T STOP ME! I WILL RETUUUURRRRR- (The unamused Lodgers kicked him comically away through those with the strongest kicks, crashing through the roof and into the waters in the distance)
  • Iago: AND WE'LL BE WAITING, SATYR-THING! *Splash*!

(Later...)

  • Celestia:... So I see. The Storm Clan has been corrupting all the lands outside our own for their own campaign since the Chaos Wars, and we're one of their toughest targets?
  • Tempest: And Storm King's attack was the first direct attack.
  • Grubber: "Surprised his Uncle the Conquest King didn't do that."
  • Chummer: "Oh, he got crushed by a stray crudely constructed rocket while he was on his way to do so."
  • Twilight: ".... (Quietly) Guess I owe the professor some thanks."
  • Tempest: But irreIivent to the point. I was his scapegoat to discourage your race into a tainted and depressing lifestyle and make you easier to conquer.
  • Cadance:... Then it's clear that Storm King's family must be stopped! It's time we ponies restored what was lost since the Chaos Wars!
  • Gazelle: "But, there's something that is haunting me about this.... Apart from their lust for power, why would they be this intense?"
  • Luna: "A mystery we will soon unravel as we combat the Storm Clan."
  • Icky: "But where are we gonna put those freaks for safe keeping?! It would be risky to send their butts to Tartarus and risk them palling up with the Tartarus monsters?!"
  • Stratus: "The Guardians would like to offer our help in that. We buildt a speical containtment room accessable only to the guardians and those on our side. My father and the elders too have heavy suspitions about the Storm Clan's reasons of being corrupt beyond normal expectations, and we wish to discover the shorce ourselves."
  • Tempest: "And that book I gave to twilight will help too. Espeically since there exist deviations to the main clan that are troublesome in their own ways."
  • Icky: "Well we're already off on a good start with that. We already kicked the Undergrowth King's butt awhile back! The Changelings there will be HAPPY to surrender his fatass!
  • Fu-Xi: "Let's not forget the Sky Puke O'Pirate hismelf, the Sky Duke! We know a sand shark that's still likely to have that de-hooked imbacile still stuck in his contents!!"
  • Stife-Nimbus: "Well, be assured. We will pick up the Undergrowth King and the Sky Duke soon enough."
  • Tempest: "And please, whatever happens, don't be afraid to ask for my help if another clan member has been found."
  • Applejack: "Would that be because you want revenge?"
  • Tempest: "No..... Okay, fine, that much is true, but, it's because..... I heard that there is a clan member that is so much of a devient, he is litterally unlike the rest. A bevolent Storm Clan member. Trouble is, he wasn't recorded in the book, so please, tell me of any Clan Member you found in the book, ESPEICALLY if you haven't found him/her! It is very impourent to me!"
  • Icky: "..... You want to ask the one good one to fix your horn, do ya?"
  • Tempest: "No, I, Uh...... (Sighs), It was obvious, wasn't it?"
  • Twilight: "..... We won't judge, Tempest. And your welcome to help us out with this."
  • Tempest: Look... I couldn't care less about my broken horn since I left Storm King. After all, I am powerful even with it broken. But... I feel there's more to me that can only be unlocked through the restoration of my horn. Perhaps it can help us battle the Storm King's family easier.
  • Gazelle: I can agree. Whatever is driving this clan insane, and so determined to make themselves the leaders of this world, it HAS to be stopped!
  • Lord Shen: "But the question is..... If what we seen so far was troublesome..... Who knows what the others are like..... And how Truely dangerious they can be?"
  • Tempest: I didn't hear much from Storm himself, but he DID say that many of his family members are worse in one way or another. So... You can't tell how dangerous each individual can be. They are worse in their own deadly way. If you're going to get to the root of the problem... You'll have to be prepared to face any family member as best as you can.
  • ???: Well, I know you'll prosper like you have before, my heroic friends! (Songbird came in)
  • Icky: Well HEEEY, it's Sia copy-pasted into a pony!
  • Songbird: (Sighs) If I had a bit for every time I heard that! Well... You all are the greatest things I've seen outside the world of Equestria so far, and given the wonders you'll tell about what it's like outside Equestria... I wanna be like Gazelle, and inspire friendship through song.
  • Gazelle:... I... (Everyone was amazed)... I... It is an honor you'd do that for us, Songbird!
  • Songbird: My pleasure, your highness! Good luck out there! (They all cheered)
  • Mira Tone: Well... We'll be glad to fight the Clan with you every step of the way, and hopefully put a stop to whatever's driving!
  • Puss: FIESTA TIME!

Epilogue: The Students Come home.

  • The Friendship School was left dark.
  • A portal opened up, showing the arriving Students and Factily.
  • Professor Buzzord: "And with that, we are home, dear students."
  • Silverstream: "Wow, that was an amazing adventure."
  • Gallus: "Oh yeah, we busted some dark Magagello's dude attempt to revive a dark evil."
  • Ocellus: "It was pronounced "Magelo", and, yes, I think that was one of our finest accomplishments."
  • Sandbar: "Which makes me wonder.... Where is anybody?"
  • ???: "SURPRISE?!"
  • The Lights turn on as the song played, to reveil that half of Equestria and beyond welcomed them back!

  • Smolder: "Wha-ho-ho! What did we missed out on to warrent half of Equestria seeing us!"
  • Starlight: "It's, a long story."
  • Yona: "So, I guess we weren't the only ones with a life changing big adventure then?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Sounds like the AUU gave you guys something to do as well huh, if that Dark Magelo crack was anything to go by."
  • Icky: "I smell a new comic story for Devientart?!
  • Shore: "It's, a long story on our parts too, guys. Let's worry more about celebrating then what happened."
  • They did such.
