The Parent Trip is the 37th Episode of Season 3B of SpongeBob and Friends Adventures Chronicles. After returning to Human Equestria, Sunset tells the story of her last moments in Equestria for the holidays. During New Year's Eve, after meeting Starlight's and Sunburst's parents, including Starburst's father Flare Spray and his new wife and Starlight's mother Sundown Shimmer, which effectively made Sunburst Starlight's stepbrother, and utterly embitters Firelight and Stellar Flare, Sunset is brought up in question and Starlight learns that she wasn't the only latch-key kid as Sundown had been so watchful and strict over Sunset for her ambition and greed, Sunset left her altogether just like she left Equestria. Thus the two are forced to reunite with Sunset and are brought to Human Equestria. When Sunset was asked to rekindle with her parents, Sunset proved unsurprisingly unwilling in feeling regretful of ever leaving them like she did especially since the same attitude that made her mother strict was what got her evil to begin with. With begrudging reluctance, Sunset was brought back to Equestria to confront her parents. However, it turned out that Sunset's mother had moved away from Canterlot upon Sunset's abandonment and disappearance and have now founded their own town northwest of Everfree called "Sunset Springs", after the Water Springs that shine beautifully in the sunset and obviously their lost daughter. However, upon arrival, it was discovered that the small community had been taken over by a crazy and kinda wacky mad scientist that was tasked to create a new Human Equestria portal without the heavily guarded mirror, but took over the town because he was off his rocker and was proven to be a questionable choice to trust with an important task, especially if his name is literally Dr. Kookoo Brain, as he intends to use the portal to create an interdimensional army, for the sake of having one because he thinks it would be cool to have one. This directionless looney runs the risk of being used by a much more nefarious and competent threat should he succeed, let alone releasing some kind of dimensional horror into Equestria. Now the Ponies AND the Lougers must put the straight-jacket of justice onto Dr. Kookoo and save Starlight and Sunset's parents from being dragged into this mess, but most of all, rekindle a lost bond.

Transcript

Prologue: Sunset's Story Begins

Sweet Snacks Café (Post-Holiday-Double-Feature)

  • Human Pinkie: (Gives the entire group the giant sundae from many times) WELCOME BACK, SUNNYSET!!!! (Blasts confetti everywhere)
  • Human Rainbow Dash: Jesus, Pinkie, this is a lot for us to stomach.
  • Dog Spike: Oh, wow, so much chocolate!! (Wagging his tail crazily) Looks so delicious.
  • Sci-Twi: Spike, you do know chocolate is poisonous to dogs, right? (Dog Spike was shocked with a glass shatter sound)
Spike_-_Why?_Why?!_Whyyyyyyyyy???!!!

Spike - Why? Why?! Whyyyyyyyyy???!!!

Dog Spike's reaction to being denied chocolate.

  • Dog Spike: Why? Why?!
  • Human Pinkie: Spike didn't actually know that? Imagine that.
  • Human Fluttershy: It's true. Sorry, Spike.
  • Dog Spike: "Other Spike has it WAAAAAY too easy! I bet chocolate never does anything bad to dragons!"
  • Sunset: Well I can eat meat when I'm a human. My diet changes whichever world I'm in. You'd surely by immune to whatever poison that chocolate has when you're in Equestria.
  • Sci-Twi: Theobromine.
  • Sunset: Bless you.
  • Sci-Twi: No, no, no, theobromine is the primary chemical in chocolate.
  • Dog Spike: So?
  • Sci-Twi: Theobromine is poisonous to dogs. Ergo, chocolate is dangerous to dogs? (another glass sound)
  • Dog Spike: WHYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?
  • Human Rainbow Dash: You done being overdramatic?
  • Dog Spike:... Pretty much, yeah.
  • Human #1: Whoa, did that dog just talk... And scream overdramatically?
  • Dog Spike:... Dude, don't ask, we're in an ENTIRELY different world than yours. The less you know, the better.
  • Human #2:... Okay, I am CLEARLY eating too much sugar here.
  • Waitress: Me too! And I was only serving the stuff!
  • Human #3: Let's just hope it blows off soon.... If it does. I REALLY hope it's the sugar and not, something else.
  • Human Pinkie: Meh, maybe it is, maybe it isn't. (Giggles)
  • Sci-Twi: Really?
  • Human Pinkie: Let me have fun here.
  • Human Rarity: "(Quietly) Well we're very lucky people here wrote off Spike as being under a sugar rush and not immediately believe what they heard."
  • Human Fluttershy: "(Quietly) It helps that the sugar is THAT good here."
  • Sunset:... Well, this got silly even BEFORE you made it that. It hasn't been this crazy since... Since that time I met back up with my parents with Starlight.
  • Human Pinkie:... Sounds flashback-episode worthy. Tell us all about it.
  • Sunset: "It's, a long and crazy story. Granted, not necessarily on the same caliber as Lord Millipede, in fact, I don't think anything would top Millipede in the foreseeable future! But, it does involve inter-dimensional craziness in, equal amounts."
  • Human Applejack: Well, what are y'all waiting for?
  • Human Rainbow Dash: Yeah, Sunset, tell us the story!
  • Sunset: "..... Okay, well...... It all started during new years day of last year."

Chapter 1: Sunset and Starlight Meet Again

Flashback

  • (Sunset): Me and Starlight needed some... Sister time. But... Since it was the holidays... One thing couldn't be avoided... Family.
  • (Human Fluttershy): What's so bad about your family?
  • (Sunset): "Basically the same clichéd wacky family problems. Starlight's Dad mindlessly babies her, and her mom, well, my mom too cause, ya know, sisters, well.... Let me explain...."
  • Sunset:... You know... This isn't a bad place to stay until I can go back to my... Somewhat permanent home. Maybe while I'm here I can always, see my parents again....
  • (Sunset): Anyway, I was on my way to see Starlight when I saw the girls-- I mean, your pony selves discussing plans for repairing the damages after an incident during Hearth's Warming.
  • (Human Pinkie): "What happened?"
  • (Sunset): "Let's just say...... They had a rather busy holiday. Two holiday themed baddies at once. I was there myself, but admittingly wasn't able to get too involved. But that was besides the point."
  • Sunset:... I wonder if they'll be happy to see me?... I... Haven't seen them since before I left... Aw, f***! I haven't seen them since before I left!! WTF, ME?! (Sighs)..... I need to go see Starlight.

French Narrator: One Teleportation Later...

  • Starlight: WHAT?!? NOT EVEN FOR THE LAST FEW TIMES YOU WERE HERE?!
  • Sunset: I just, I didn't want to show back up too soon, since, I was afraid they'd be pretty angry for leaving them.
  • Starlight: Well, not that I blame them. Leaving straight-up your own HOMEWORLD, especially because of your own pride and ego? That's messed up, even from my own old standards.
  • Sunset: Look, we ALL have regrets, sis. Where... Where are they now? Are they still home?
  • Starlight: Yep. I just would like to remind you that... Me and Sunburst had a little run-in with them recently.
  • Sunset: Meh, we at least have a little time before we can return there. Right? (Suddenly their cutie marks glowed) Uh, what's with your cutie mark?
  • Starlight: The Cutie Map is calling us. (Their cutie marks guided them to the Map)
  • Twilight:... Oh, hey, Sunset. Glad to see you again... After our last little adventure.
  • Sunset:... You've GOTTA be kidding me! (The Map summoned them back directly to Sire's Hollow)... WTF, Map? (Golden Oak appeared)
  • Golden Oak: Don't blame the map for thinking of this at the same time as you, Sunset. Even I can hardly understand it sometimes.
  • Sunset: Um... Have we met?
  • Twilight: Oh, yeah, this is Golden Oak... She founded the Golden Oak Library, and we ended up accidentally freeing her vengeful spirit after uprooting the remains of it to make me feel less... Out of place upon it's destruction.
  • Spike: DAMN that Tirek!
  • Sunset:... Ouch. So... It's, I mean, she's, serving as some sort of speaker for the Map or something?
  • Golden Oak: Indeed. It's not exactly the FINEST job I've had, but it's the best I got in MY conditions. This is still technically the Golden Oak Library given a... Well... Excessively crystalline makeover. I swear, it's STILL an eyesore even after all these years.
  • Spike: "Well I kinda don't see Ponyville changing around to compliment it better anytime soon."
  • Golden Oak: "Fair point."
  • Sunset: Well... What exactly is going on home?
  • Golden Oak: I'm not supposed to tell it. Heck, even IT doesn't know. It can just sense friendship problems via the Tree of Harmony's roots. It's basically a tree that I can feel like a hivemind. There are rules that have to be followed in these friendship missions.
  • Sunset: Well, what are we waiting for? Let's head on there. Twi? You have any ticket-
  • Golden Oak: ONE of those rules being that only those who are called by the map are allowed to go.
  • Sunset:... That's stupid. It can't expect just the BOTH of us to do this.
  • Golden Oak: Look, I don't make the rules, the Map does.... Or, the tree? Friendship itself? I don't have the slightest clue.
  • Twilight: Regardless, I'll still go there with you because... Well... When we were saving you from Lord Millipede, I realized that... I could've just went with the summoned ones to their destination for my leisure.... You were there to see that, right?
  • Sunset: No, I, was still kidnapped.
  • Twilight: Good, because it was SO embarrassing. But, still, you can't ask me for advice of any kind. The entire mission is all on the both of you and nopony else.
  • Sunset:... Still feels stupid.
  • Twilight: Just, don't question it. I'm SURE it knows what it's doing. Just ask Rhabdom.
  • Sunset:... Which one was Rhabdom again?
  • Twilight: "The Sea Changeling."
  • Sunset: "Right, right!"
  • Starlight: Whatever, the map says we gotta do this alone, that's what we'll do.
  • Golden Oak: Good luck. And safe travels.
  • Sunset:... And this was why I was hesitant with my studies before.
  • (Human Pinkie): Wow, must've been tough you had to do ALL of that with only your sister.
  • (Sunset): Well, the Lodgers were there too. There's technically no rule against that.... I'm assuming.
  • (Human Pinkie): Well, it is THEIR show. An episode would be naked without them.... Where were they during all this? Surely after the last adventure, they'd be sticking around.
  • (Sunset): "Well, it so happens that they were staying around for a little bit cause it was during a holiday visit, but I wasn't exactly able to keep track of them, so, your guess is as good as mine."

French Narrator: Let me take it from here. Meanwhile...

  • The Lougers were seen.
  • Patrick: WHEW! What a DAY! Some people in this world are weird. Those three overdramatic flower ponies. At least they weren't as loony as that Chocolate Guy!

Cutaway...

  • SpongeBob: Hello, sir. Could we interest you in some new, Sausage Krabby Patties?
  • Tom: Sausage?... Did you say, sausage?
  • Patrick: Yes he did sir. With or without eggs.
  • Tom: Sausage? SAUSAGE?! SAAAAUSAAAAAGE-
  • Patrick: Alright, look, buster, we've done this once before. You want it or not?
  • Tom: Yeah, I'll take a hundred. (Mr. Krabs was nearby and his eyes turned into dollar signs)
  • Patrick: THAT'S what I thought...

Present

  • Patrick: YEESH, that guy was a real wackjob.
  • Icky: "Well I think it's been established since Season 1 that Ponyville's a town of Eccentrics."
  • Patrick: At least they weren't as eccentric as HE was. I swear, if I have to hear his screaming every day, I'm gonna- (Discord appeared behind him with Tom's head)
  • Discord: CHOOOCOLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!!! (Patrick jumped screaming as he hit his head on the van's ceiling and fell into cartoonish pieces as Discord laughed turning his head back to normal) HAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!! You should've seen the LOOK ON YOUR FACE!! BEYOND PRICELESS!!! Anyway, Happy Hearth's Warming.
  • Patrick: Oh haha!
  • Discord: See, even YOU'RE laughing.
  • Lord Shen: "What is it now, Discord?"
  • Discord: Well, I wanted to make sure where YOU guys were since this is an episode that SHOULD be in the series... Or would've given the hiatus stuff it and the SAFA series went through in Season 8 since MSM's lethargy and overweight s*** made him slower than molasses.
  • (MSM): (Babbles like an idiot)... HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?!?
  • Discord: You're the one who made me say it, you tell me. You're basically admitting that to your own friend.
  • (Deadpool): Yeah, man. You've been lagging out lately. You get distracted with Ark again and taking too many naps?
  • (MSM): Shut up, WADE!
  • (Deadpool): OKAY, GRAYSON!
  • (MSM): I think you did that joke already.
  • (Deadpool): I know, I love it.
  • Discord:... I really hate that guy. HIS chaos is not acceptable levels to me. Anywho, you guys ready to act if the ponies should be having another mission?
  • Bill: Look, we've already been through two before this month.
  • Discord: Yeah, but adventures is KINDA what your show is about. Villains aren't in every one, but still.
  • ???: OHHHH, DIIISYYYYY!!!
  • Discord: Ugh, not again. KAT, I'M BUSY! (Black Kat came out)
  • Black Kat: You're ALWAYS busy. I wanna be in an episode too. All I've been so far is a crazy stalker type girlfriend.
  • Discord:... Yeah, and I love it. THAT is what a TRUE Draconequus girlfriend should be.
  • Trixie: Yeesh, you have an odd taste in women.
  • Discord: Well, you should be lucky that's the case. ALL OF MY CANON FRIENDS HERE ARE MOSTLY COMPRISED OF WOMAN! If it wasn't for my sexual preference, then I'd fall in love with anypony here. Dare I say, the big obvious elephant in the room ones would be Fluttershy or Celestia. YEESH! Those ships are NOT sinking anytime soon.
  • Chaos: Well, Equestria IS a matriarchal society. Females are the dominant gender on this world.
  • Discord: EXACTLY!
  • Chaos: Not that that's a bad thing. Girls need a lot more respect since their registry to vote was STILL a fairly recent change.
  • (Sunset): Okay, Discord, can you STOP ruining my story here?
  • Discord: HEY! Can't I do ANYTHING for fun?
  • (Sunset): You ALREADY do that all the time.
  • Discord: Nevertheless. Anyway, back to the point. I was totally NOT spying on Twilight and turns out, Sunset and her sister are off to their hometown to meet their parents, because there's another friendship mission the Map called them for. Perhaps you could, say, go with them? I mean, there's no rule against having otherworldly people help out in their missions.
  • SpongeBob: Discord, we don't do friendship missions unless they threaten this world.
  • Discord:... Oh, so this is a flashback episode where certain big events didn't happened yet, huh?
  • Shen:... The devil does that mean?!
  • Discord: "You'll see later."
  • Shen:... Whatever. Perhaps we should go with them. Anything could happen, like another threat.
  • Iago: Uhhh, what the hell could POSSIBLY be that serious in a friendship mission such as parental issues?
  • Discord: I never said it was a parental issue. And uh, where the hell have YOU been living for nearly 11 years? We're in a cartoon.
  • Shen: Exactly. (Smacks his beak)... Ick. The taste of those words are so weird.
  • Discord: Chaos tastes weird. Like earwax mixed with soap, poo, pee, pus, phlegm, lint, blubber-
  • Shen: OH, PLEASE DON'T TELL ME YOU-
  • Discord: AAHHHHHHHHH, I'm just f*****g with you! Still, you might want to be ready for anything. There's ONE law you gotta follow in cartoon world: Expect, the unexpected.
  • Icky: "Well that doesn't mean there's suddenly gonna be something end of the world worthy from just someone going to see their parents."
  • Discord: "..... Do be reminded that this is Sunset and Starlight we're talking about, two ponies previously guilty of attempted conquest and major mess up of the fabric of reality cause of their magic prowess?"
  • Gilda: Yeah, pretty sure anyone would have it out for STARLIGHT in particular. For ANY reason. Can someone PLEASE drive the damn van?
  • Discord: Hey, let's not pull the throttle here- (The van went immediately forward and towards its destination as Mr. Dodo had pulled it)
  • Everyone: DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! (They crashed into Sire's Hollow)...
  • Mr. Dodo:... Sorry! I was just... Tired of the talking, and... I immediately regret the solution. OOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!
  • Mr. Whiskers: I hurt my everywhere!!
  • Icky: "Well, I'm still glad, we got to appear earlier then usual in these Equestria Episodes. Usually we show up as an afterthought..... Owwwww."
  • SpongeBob: Glad I'm malleable... But it STILL hurt for some reason. But hey, at least it'll keep kids from wanting to mimic the crazy things I do for the fact I DO feel pain. (They all came out cartoonishly and mostly falling to pieces)
  • Mr. Whiskers: Ow, ow, ow... Owwwww.
  • Brandy: Oh, rub some dirt on it- (Crack) AAAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
  • Mr. Whiskers: Would you like a share of that dirt?
  • Shen: Can someone put these guys back together so we can get this over with?
  • Pang Bing: "But of course..... Though it's going to require a lot of duct tape."
  • Mr. Dodo: "Just a matter of finding a duck for the tape then."
  • Pang Bing: "..... DUCT, NOT DUCK?!"
  • Mr. Dodo: That's what I said, duck tape.
  • Pang Bing: (Sighs), It's like talking to a brick wall..... An intellectually CHALLANEGD brick wall.
  • Icky: "What did you expect? He's from Wonderland."
  • Mr. Dodo: Retardation aside, as soon as we put you guys together, we can return to the plot.
  • Discord: Speaking of... (His dismembered arm pulled into the next scene)

Later...

  • Sunset:... Wow... The place has hardly changed.
  • Starlight: "There are, minor exceptions though. (Pulls on the gate and it did an introduction)...."
  • Sunset: "...... When was THAT a thing?!"
  • Starlight: "Blame it on Sunburst's mom."
  • Sunset:... Well, I stand corrected. But aside from that, it hasn't changed a bi- (She was sprayed with fragrance) AAHH!!
  • Fragrance Pony: Thanks.
  • Sunset: BLEEEHHHH! I HATE diffusion... Or, was it osmosis?
  • Fragrance Pony: It's diffusion. Trust me, I know. But apologies regardless, I'm still trying to work out my system of doing this to new ponies.
  • Starlight: "Old habits die hard, huh?"
  • Fragrance Pony: Suppose they do. So, Starlight? Who's your bacon-haired friend?
  • Starlight: This is my sister, Sunset Shimmer.
  • Fragrance Pony: Oh... You're the deadbeat sister who left your parents alone, aren't you?
  • Sunset: I... Oh... Did I really leave THAT sour an impression?
  • Fragrance Pony: Oh, yeah. Your parents made QUITE the dramatic scene when you abandoned them to find something too quickly. They said you were 'such a needy pony'. They even said that you were no daughter of theirs when Celestia said you straight-up ABANDONED your own homeworld in favor of another dimension.
  • Sunset:... Ouch.
  • (Human Rainbow Dash): Ouch is an understatement!
  • (Human Fluttershy): Oh my.
  • Sunset: I, I had no idea.
  • Fragrance Pony: Well, that proves them right, then.
  • Starlight: Look, uh... I never did get your name.
  • Fragrance Pony: Ever Essence.
  • Sunset:... Oh, yeah, I remember you. You're the daughter of those business ponies who went around testing their own fragrances.
  • Ever Essence: Gee, thanks for realizing you're not the ONLY pony with parental issues.
  • Sunset:... Ooookay, NOW I'm sure little has changed-

Later...

  • Sunset: Smoothies? (She tried one and gagged) UGH! Did they LITERALLY just turn the stuff into gunk without anything else?

Later...

  • Sunset: WHAAAAAAaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?!?! (The bookstore was closed)... I studied SO MUCH in this bookstore!
  • Starlight: "I'm guessing old habits in this place are still dying hard here."
  • Pink-Haired Pony: Indeed. But this time, it's for different reasons. We're demolishing it and rebuilding it.
  • Sunset/Starlight: Wait, WHAT?!?
  • Green-Haired Pony: Or at least that was the ORIGINAL plan, until Stellar suggested we just give it an overhaul.
  • Sunset/Starlight: OH WHEW!
  • Sunset: That's a relief. Not ALL things gotta be torn down when they just need to be revamped.
  • Starlight: PLEASE don't scare us like that again Ms... Uh...
  • Green-Haired Pony: Oh yeah, we never DID say our names. I'm Minty Mocha, and this is Raspberry Latte.
  • Raspberry Latte: Yeah, our families were in the coffee business.
  • Sunset: I can tell, because that's where I remember you from when we were still fillies.
  • Minty:... Wait, you're that deadbeat sister of Sunset that Firelight kept refusing to talk about, aren't you? Still haven't gotten rid of that bacon hair, huh?
  • Raspberry: Can you NOT mention bacon? That's sick to a herbivorous species like us. Even VEGAN meat is STILL meat, even if it only looks like it.
  • Minty: Well yeah, it only looks like it. The patties for example are made ENTIRELY of plant products.
  • Raspberry: STILL looks like meat. WHO'S going to want to TRY it?
  • Minty: Who's going to want to try something as gunky as TOFU?!
  • Raspberry:... Touché.
  • Sunset: AHEM!... Well... NOW I can say things have changed-

Later...

  • Sunset: AW COME ON!!!! (They saw the hard rocky bread) The bread's changed TOO?!
  • Baker Pony: Uh... 100% organic wheat?
  • Starlight: Seriously? Uh...
  • Baker Pony: Cracked Wheat.
  • Sunset:... (She laughed like this)
Look_At_This_Dude_Laugh_-_Free_Sound_Effect

Look At This Dude Laugh - Free Sound Effect

  • Sunset: YOU'RE THAT FAILED PONY COLT WHO WAS ALWAYS COOKING ROCKS AT SCHOOL!! HAHAHAHA!!
  • Starlight: Sunset!!
  • Sunset: Hey, we all have to laugh at ourselves.
  • Cracked Wheat: It's alright. I'm used to it. Besides, it comes from a long family line of ponies who want to introduce healthier alternatives to the pastries other bakers make.
  • Starlight:... So, you convinced little has changed?
  • Sunset: As little as little can be here. Seriously, is THIS also because of Sunburst's mother?
  • Starlight: Actually, THESE were mostly my father's.
  • Sunset:... What about OUR mom? Where is SHE?
  • Starlight: Oh, I don't know. Me and Sunburst were both avoiding our parents until the Map called us to deal with it. All we met on THAT mission was my father and his mother.
  • Sunset:... So you're insinuating you never got in touch with our mother?
  • Starlight:...... Apparently, not.
  • Sunset: WOW! Like sister like sister, am I right?
  • Starlight: Sure, rub it in, Ms. I'm Gonna Try And Take Over Equestria With An Army Of Brainwashed Teenage Humans Because I Wanted To Be Spoiled Too Early!
  • Sunset: Hey, let's not bring THAT up, Ms. I'm Gonna Screw With Time And Listen To The Ways Of A Hippogriff Cutie Mark Communist Introduced To Me By A Made-Gay Anthro Bat Lady Because I Lost My Friend.
  • Starlight:... *Sigh* I REALLY did miss you.
  • Sunset: Me too.
  • Cracked Wheat:... You both need therapy. A LOT of it, if I'm being blunt.
  • Sunset/Starlight: "We get that a lot."
  • Sunset: But we're sisters, what did you expect?
  • Cracked Wheat: True.
  • Sunset: "But do you happen to know where they went?"
  • Cracked Wheat: "Sadly, they kinda sort've left town without saying much of everything. But I do think the mayor MAY have some idea of what they aimed to do ever since you left, Sunset, but, he's been asked to keep that on the downlow to anyone I guess in exception to you if you ever came back."
  • Sunset: "Well that doesn't sound so hard."
  • Cracked Wheat: "Our mayor's ridiculously eccentric and forgets things, so the secretary records all memories in files to remind him better."
  • Sunset: "Ugh, figures."
  • Starlight: But at least it's a step in the right direction. C'mon. Let's talk to Mayor Hollows.
  • Cracked Wheat: Oh, he's not mayor anymore. His wife is.
  • Starlight:... So, we still call her Mayor Hollows?
  • Cracked Wheat: Pretty much. Her husband died during a... Cutie Mark Pox incident that got him jumping off a cliff thanks to a daredevil cutie mark and THEN dying from that with the overlapping Cutie Mark Pox effects.
  • Sunset: Ohhhh. That sucks.
  • Cracked Wheat: Yeah... She doesn't like to talk about it. So, DON'T let it slip about poor Prancey.
  • Starlight: Well, aside from doing it once to bring our condolences, we won't.... But that WOULD be a problem. I don't think his wife will know much about where our mother is now.
  • Cracked Wheat: Well she IS just like Prancey. She just has a hard time with files, memory or otherwise, since... The death was fairly recent.
  • Sunset: Yikes. We'll figure out something.
  • Starlight: "We should probably check to see if she's one of those appointment politicians first. That always slows things down in seeing them."
  • Cracked Wheat: "Don't worry, she doesn't do appointments, the Hollows is a pretty quiet and content town, so she's always free to have someone to talk to."
  • Starlight: Great, thanks. (She and Sunset walk off)

Mayor's Office

  • Sunset: Okay, this is it. (Starlight knocks on the door)
  • ???: Come in! Just mind where you step, I got some organized chaos going around!
  • Starlight: (To Sunset) Glad Discord isn't here.
  • (Discord): Actually, I am. Well, me and Kat. She's insisted on being in an episode-
  • Starlight/Sunset: (Quietly) Shut, up!
  • ???: AHA! There it is! MY GLASSES! (A female pony with a bright-tan-orange coat, a yellow mane and tail, the same leg patterns as Sunburst, and a hillside sunset cutie mark was seen at the desk putting her glasses on)
  • Sunset:... Wow. I... I actually remember you from when I was a filly. You barely changed since I last saw you.
  • Mayor Hollows:... Sunset? Yikes, it's been so long. How's it been since you got your parents crying about your little selfish episode in Canterlot?
  • Sunset: Ugh! We HAD to bring it up. Look, demanding to know about the portal AND to be an Alicorn too early was selfish, I admit, but, how would YOU feel if YOUR parents were too terribly close for comfort and you wanted to prove you were independent?
  • Starlight:... I guess that makes sense.
  • Mayor Hollows: Well, who am I to judge a pony? I find it a LOT easier to not to at face value. Especially since... Prancey.
  • Sunset: Yeah, we heard about him. We're... Sorry.
  • Mayor Hollows: Somepony has to be. Yes, his eccentric behaviors made him unprofessional, but, he was beloved in the town regardless.... I never fancy Cutie Pox to be fatal. I thought the worse that comes from it just too many talents. I mean, the cliff didn't helped, but.....
  • Starlight: "I, think it might help if we get to what we're here about, Sunset's parents."
  • Mayor Hollows: "..... (Sighs), You're right. Thinking too much about Prancey makes me, forget my place. I'm sorry if I don't have his direct knowledge, but, I do want to do the best I can."
  • Sunset: Good. I want to apologize to mom for... Walking out on her.
  • Mayor Hollows: Well, I'm not sure if she'd be willing to listen to you. You've been gone for WAY too long.
  • Sunset: I have to do something. I OWE it to her.
  • Mayor Hallows: "...... Well, good on you for finally making an effort, I suppose."
  • Sunset: Thanks, I guess.
  • Starlight: Now that that's out of the way, what do you know about our mother?
  • Mayor Hallows: "I, have to admit that I wasn't exactly there when my husband had that meeting, and even then, he only told me limited not exactly helpful details, primarily just stuff about her leaving but he was asked to keep quiet about the details. This was, back before he caught Cutie Pox, mind you, so, you have to keep an open mind that he didn't think he would-..... (Sighs depressed), Sorry, sorry, I almost u-turned back into my personal woe, give me a minute to re-coup."
  • Sunset: It's okay. It sounds like it happened fairly recently.
  • Mayor Hollows: It did. I would look up the information, BUT, I DON'T think anypony should have a complete file of the history. That'd be so cluttered up, even a UNICORN can't keep track. Not even my husband.
  • Starlight: That sucks.
  • Mayor Hollows: Did you consider asking your father where she is?
  • Starlight/Sunset:... Weeeellll...
  • Mayor Hollows: Well what?
  • Sunset: We did, buuuuut...
  • Mayor Hollows: What?!
  • Sunset: Well, we figured he'd be LESS than pleased to see me.
  • Mayor Hollows: Well, duh. But, from where I'm standing, I can't really find another option. I'm still new to this stuff, so I don't think I can be of much help. I at least offered you a solution you COULD'VE gone for. If your father is the only pony who can give you the info you need, then I say it's about time you faced your past, Sunset. You want to do right by your parents? Then don't hide from your father.
  • Sunset:... (Sighs) So much for seeing him later.
  • Starlight: Sun, I think she's right. We need to go see our dad for this. It could be the ONLY way we can find mom.
  • Sunset: I know, but, I wanted to save HIM for last. I mean, since Mom was the one who left, I thought she had to be the one to start with.
  • Starlight: Why did you think that? Wouldn't it make more sense to see DAD first?
  • Sunset: Maybe, but, uh, whatever. We got what we need to do, so let's do it already!... Buuut... Where is he?
  • Starlight: Let's just teleport to him. Is that really gonna hurt? (A cutaway of her teleports spooking people into comical situations and slapstick routines was seen)... Yeah, good point.
  • Sunset: I didn't say anything.
  • Starlight:... Let's just go. Mayor? Any info on where our DAD is?
  • Mayor Hollows: Oh, outside of trying to do his biz on fixing Sire's Hollow the RIGHT way, no. You can find him where you can usually find him.
  • Sunset:... Thanks, I guess?
  • Mayor Hollows: (Sighs) Prancey, why did you have to go so soon? I'M DROWNING IN POLITICAL GARBAGE!!! (She sobbed as Sunset and Starlight awkwardly left)

Elsewhere in the Sire

  • Sunburst's father was seen organizing some things as Stellar was helping as well.
  • Sunburst's father: "Again, I want to apologize for everything that happened with my wife's aims to over-modernize the sire, she was coming from a good place."
  • Firelight: Well, Flare Spray, she HAD to recognize what an impact such decisions would've brought.
  • Flare Spray: But let's also not forget YOUR stunts. This is a town, NOT a museum, NOR an outdoor shopping mall.
  • Firelight: (Shows up) I believe an outdoor shopping mall is called a marketplace.
  • Flare Spray: Semantics semantics! No need for them nowadays. But my point stands that this is suppose to be a community, not neither of those things you were doing to the town.
  • Firelight: Well pardon me for trying to get with the times.
  • Flare Spray: That was NOT getting with the times, NOR did ponies wish for that. That felt like rampant Capitalism found it's way to Equestria!
  • Firelight: (Sighs) Can we all just agree that it was all in the past? The only thing that matters is the present and the future.
  • Stellar: We're ALREADY perfect. We do NOT need to change anytime soon.
  • Firelight: You don't know that. For all we know, there could be something brewing and coming at our direction as we speak.
  • Stellar: Oh, come now, Firelight, don't be so paranoid. You're CLASSIER than that. If anything, Sire's Hollow should have BETTER law enforcement.
  • Firelight: Tosh to that. It hardly works regardless.
  • Stellar: Well neither does ANY law enforcement in Equestria if the Storm King's coup was any indication.
  • Nearby Pony: Ohhhhhh!
  • Flare Spray: "OH WHO HASN'T CALLED THAT OUT?! I bet ya if the legendary Commander Hurricane is still around, he'd FLIP at how bad our enforcers are!"
  • Stellar: Well, I heard rumors that--
  • ???: Um... is this a bad time?
  • Everyone sees Starlight and Sunset.
  • Firelight: "Starlight, there's my wittle bumpkin! You didn't say you were making a surprise visit! (Grabs Starlight with a bearhug!)"
  • Stellar: "(Sighs), Sunburst couldn't come today?"
  • Starlight: Unfortunately, no. It's just me and Sunset now.
  • Stellar:... Is that the daughter who walked out on you?
  • Firelight:... She's no daughter of mine.
  • Sunset: Oh, very funny, dad.
  • Firelight: I'm NOT your dad.
  • Sunset: YES YOU ARE! Stop trying to avoid me, I came here to apologize, and find mom, and here you are pretending I don't exist? Why don't we pretend STARLIGHT doesn't exist while we're at it?
  • Starlight:...
  • Firelight:... You really changed LITTLE and yet a LOT at the same time. Tell me, was that pitiful dimension worth abandoning your home AND your family?
  • Sunset: Okay, you're clearly phrasing it that way to make me feel bad about going to that Human Dimension to make me LOOK bad! If it makes you feel better, I now realize that what I did has hurted those I care about. And another thing, calling it "Pitiful" kinda makes you sound racist in a inter-dimensional way!
  • Firelight: Well SORRY if I kinda have to question on what you even SEE in that realm and that I am not able to scrutinize it without sounding xenophobic on a Multiverseal level?! Not helping on what you found yourself in?! A low-class high school education about astrology, math, and no magic?!
  • Sunset: From what I heard, it's certainly MUCH more exciting than what YOU'VE tried to do to this place.
  • Starlight: It's true. Not bad for my first time in Human Equestria. I've seen her do good things there. As her father, you should stand to be proud of her.
  • Firelight: Have you forgotten what she did to GET there? She wanted to know about that portal DESPERATELY and she TRESPASSED into the restricted section of the royal library, AND demanded to be an Alicorn to Celestia's face. Such AUDACITY to expect everything to go her way.
  • Sunset: You say that like I'm STILL that pony, but I'm NOT! I've changed. Why is this such a big deal to you, father?!
  • Firelight:... (Sighs). I feel like I have to explain the meaning of LIFE with a question like that?! Do I have to SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU?! When you left, I was gifted with ridicule from the ponies here. I was embarrassed that the one pony who demanded something she was not ready for to Celestia, was my DAUGHTER! Ya know what that turned me too? A joke of a parent. When you left through the portal, I became the LAUGHING STOCK of Sire's Hollow!
  • Starlight: Oh, THAT'S why you're a laughing stock? What about YOU coddling us like FILLIES even AFTER we weren't fillies anymore?!
  • Nearby Pony: OOOOOOOOOHHHHH-
  • Everypony: SHUT UP!!!
  • Nearby Pony: SORRY, OKAY, OUR INCONSISTENT TECHOLOGICAL LEVEL SOMEHOW STILL DOESN'T HAVE TVS FOR US, AND YET WE HAVE HELECOPTERS AND FREAKING MOVIE THEATHERS?! UGH?! I WISHED WE KEPT THOSE GIFTS FROM THAT KEVIN GUY?!
  • Starlight: And let's not ALSO forget that I was pretty nasty myself in my day. In fact, I was MUCH worse! I COMMITTED CHRONOTERRORISM!
  • Firelight:... Chrono what now?
  • Sunset: It's what we call causing destructive chaos akin to terrorism via time-travel.
  • Firelight:... Still feels redundant.
  • Starlight: Look, the point is, I left before Sunset did. And SHE was the one who broke the camel's back for you?
  • Firelight: HEY, TO BE FAIR, YOUR OWN LITTLE MELTDOWN AS CELESTIA'S FORMER STUDENT, EVEN IF CANON KINDA SAYS THAT DIDN'T HAPPENED BUT SAF HAS IT'S OWN CONTINUITY STANDERDS CAUSE HINDSIGHT'S A BITCH, SO WHATEVER ON THAT, DIDN'T REALLY HELPED MATTERS EITHER!? MAYBE THAT'S THE POINT! I AM THE FATHER TO TWO PONIES WHO DID HORRID THINGS!! Can you IMAGINE the image I had afrer that? When YOU were litigated for YOUR time-travel stunt, I had to suffer FAR WORSE than when Sunset pulled when she left. Ponies hardly respect me now, even with all the benefits I offer!
  • Nearby Pony: Ugh, everypony, it's Hearth's Warming..... I mean, Hearth's Warming Adjacent cause it's January now and Hearth's Warming's a December Holiday, but same thing! We're not supposed to be fighting-
  • Firelight: YOU STAY OUT OF THIS, THIS IS A FAMILY MATTER!!
  • Starlight: Actually, this random un-named bystander made a good observation even if it WASN'T their business to do so! I have to say, this has to stop. We don't want to attract the Windigos.
  • Firelight: Starlight Glimmer, you proved to me that you are a grown mare, so act like it! There's NO such thing as Windigos.
  • Starlight: Well there is. I've seen them.
  • Firelight: RUBBISH! If they were real, then the stress over deadlines alone would have Equestria BURIED in snow!
  • Starlight: "The Windigoes feed more on resentment and anger, NOT STUPID THINGS LIKE THAT?!"
  • Firelight: "...... To be fair, I didn't get my cutie mark in understanding legends, but that doesn't mean Windigoes are real! It just means I'm not very good at the mythos."
  • Starlight: "YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT?!"
  • Sunset: Ugh, THIS is why I didn't want to see you. I wanted to be somepony great too early, BECAUSE of this kind of attitude. When Starlight got nabbed by Fem Fatala, I was the only one who could do something for us. I did it because I wanted to PROVE to you that I MATTERED! And now, I do! I came here to redeem myself this Hearth's Warming, and THIS is what I get?
  • Firelight: What did you expect? Did you honestly think your PARENTS wouldn't be affected by your departure? Your MOTHER was so disappointed, she left back to Sunset Springs when she was called a disgrace of a parent. We hardly speak now. And it's all thanks to YOU!
  • Sunset: Well, with THAT attitude, I can see where we GOT our bad sides from.
  • Nearby Pony: OOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
  • Sunset: SHUT THE F-.... Yeah, okay, that's honestly deserved. Father, I came home to apologize and make up for what I've done. But, at least I got what I wanted from you, to know where Mom is.
  • Starlight: Hmmph. Dad, I thought you were BETTER than this. Especially on Hearth's Warming? You should be ashamed of yourself!
  • Firelight:... You have NO idea what it was like to be shunned and called a joke, and even nearly assaulted at night, for what you both did. ESPECIALLY when Princess Twilight made you your PUPIL even after all that. Not that I was asking you to be sent to prison or banished to the Sun or anything-
  • Starlight: "There's no actual sun banishments-"
  • Firelight: AGAIN, NOT VERY GOOD AT THE MYTHOS OF ANYTHING?! Which is ironic cause I tried to make a museum out of the shire?! But at least a fair punishment. Time-travelling terrorism and cutie mark communism, and for WHAT? For losing a friend to a cutie mark and/or cause of something that happened off Canon Show I am not fit to bring up right now? What sense does it make to become a PUPIL after that? Not meaning to badmouth Princess Sparkle by all means otherwise, but, I think she's confusing being the Princess of Friendship as also being the Princess of Unnecessary/Premature Forgiveness!
  • Starlight: Okay, it's CLEAR that this was a mistake. Dad, if you're not going to forgive Sunset for just trying to apologize, then maybe you DESERVE to be the laughing stock of Sire's Hollow! (Firelight stopped)... Yeah, didn't consider that, huh?... We're sorry we wasted your time... And OURS, mostly. We got what we wanted from you, and nothing more.
  • Sunset:... (She softly sobbed for a brief moment)
  • Stellar:... Heh. Father of the year, everypony.
  • Firelight: OH, SURE, RUB IT IN! THAT'S SO TYPICAL OF YOU! How would YOU feel if YOU were in my horseshoes?!
  • Stellar: I'd at least be as forgiving as Celestia was when Sunset first met her after all these years. You DISGUST me, Firelight Glimmer! DISGUSTING! (She left in a huff)
  • Firelight: WELL AT LEAST I DON'T SHOW OFF AND EXPOSE MY OWN NETHER REGIONS AS I STRUT MY TAIL!
  • Stellar: I WHAT?! (She tumbled down and fell on a few crates) OOF! I, THAT WAS VISIBLE THIS WHOLE TIME?!? I THOUGHT IT WAS VISIBLE FOR EVERYPONY ELSE!!!
  • Firelight: (Scoffs)
  • Stellar: Hmmph! Laugh all you want, but DON'T change the subject. I suggest YOU think about what you just did, because it's Hearth's Warming. We wouldn't want to add THAT to the list of reasons why people spit at you at the grocery store, now would we? (She left while covering her butt with her tail)
  • Firelight: ".... Look, girls, I- (Sunset and Starlight had already left)....."
  • Flare Spray: "....... I'm sorry, but what the heck did I miss here?"

Mayor's Office.

  • Mayor Hallows: "(Sighs), I didn't planned on Firelight to turn out to be so, negative. I'm sorry if that ended up being for, a pointless dispute."
  • Sunset: "So now what do we do?"
  • Starlight: Well, Dad DID tell us where Mom is. Sunset Springs. But... Are we entirely sure she's still there? Maybe she moved somewhere else.
  • Sunset: Probably, but we have to start somewhere. Mayor? Any ideas on where to start when we DO get there?
  • Mayor Hallows: "(Sighs)..... Maybe Prancey written something down about such things before he died? But I'm usually very through, I never missed any detail in the office! I checked all rooms except the bedroom!"
  • Starlight: "...... You, didn't, check his bedroom?"
  • Mayor Hallows: "...... It triggers my grieving habits just being near the door."
  • Starlight: "But you never thought that the thing he would make to remind himself about Sunset's parents might be in like, a private journal or something that he keeps in his bedroom?"
  • Mayor Hallows: "I mean, he does keep a personal mayor records book, but, it doesn't feel right to read my dead husband's private thoughts, especially if it's not capable to really have a say in the matter!"
  • Sunset: Look, let's just go to Sunset Springs and see what we can get. If she DID move somewhere, we'll know where to go. Just, the matter of finding out WHERE Sunset Springs are.
  • Starlight: Well, the Cutie Map only said to solve the friendship problem here in the sire, so it's not like we can just go back to Twilight's castle and ask her where it is.
  • Mayor Hollows:... Wait... You mean to tell me, of all the time your mother raised you... She NEVER brought you on a trip to her hometown?!
  • Sunset: "Maybe it's because she actually liked being the sire and wanted to raise us here, ergo she had no real reason to go there till now apparently?"
  • Mayor Hallows: "I-....... Okay, I can't fault you two for that."
  • Starlight: "So what is Sunset Springs?"
  • Mayor Hallows: Sunset Springs was only a small tribal county when Sundown was a filly, but you surely had to have SOME clue.
  • Starlight: Well, we DID spend a lot of our time being bad ponies, how could we EVER take the time for that?
  • Sunset: Do YOU at least know where Sunset Springs is?
  • Mayor Hollows: No, I just told you. Even if Prancey left it out, Sundown would have. She likely didn't want to be embarrassed because of you two again, and left her hometown's location a secret.
  • Sunset:... Wow. No WONDER Mom and Dad got together. They have so much jerkiness in common with each other.
  • Starlight: Sunset, must you be so mean? They're our parents, for crying out loud.
  • Sunset: My dad just CHEWED ME UP AND SPAT ME OUT BECAUSE HIS FEEBEES GOT HURT, IN FRONT OF SO MANY PONIES! So, YES! SO typical of him.
  • Starlight:... Touche, I guess? Well, whatever, let's see if we can find Sunset Springs ourselves. You said it was around the Everfree Forest, right?
  • Mayor Hollows: Indeed, but I'm afraid that's all I know. Sundown just blurted it out before she left. She wasn't exactly specific beyond that.
  • Sunset: Then that's where we're going. Thank you, Mayor Hollows. You've been a big help to both of us. (She and Starlight leave)
  • Mayor Hollows:... Not bad for one of my first tasks as mayor... I guess this'll work out after all.

Chapter 2: Looking for Sunset Springs/Looking for the Lost Parent

Twilight's Castle

  • Twilight: So Mayor Hollows said that your mother lives somewhere near the Everfree Forest?
  • Starlight: That's what she said.
  • Twilight: "I see. Well may I add that I'm, a little shocked at Firelight's behavior."
  • Spike: "Not to mention hypocritical. He was so chill about what Starlight did, but yet SUNSET's the bad egg here? No offense to either of you."
  • Sunset: None taken. I'm used to it.
  • Starlight: Eh, so am I.
  • Twilight: "But I'm sure we would address it when we have the chance. But first things first, we need to address this Sunset Springs place."
  • Starlight: "Maybe the map can help."

Cutie Map Room

  • Golden Oak: You're back already? How did you solve the friendship problem?
  • Starlight: Here's the thing: solving the problem got a little bit harder. We got word that our mother is living in Sunset Springs, near the Everfree Forest, and we came back hoping you'd shed a little light on where it is.
  • Golden Oak:... Well then, why on earth didn't the Map send you THERE instead of Sire's? Even the Map's very motivations are beyond me!"
  • Starlight: "Maybe it's because it wanted to get directions to the actual place of interest first before we get started on that?"
  • Golden Oak: "..... Oy, I basically live within the Map and it still confounds me sometimes."
  • Sunset: Look, can you just help us locate Sunset Springs? We know it's near the Everfree Forest, but we just don't know where.
  • Golden Oak: "Well that's the thing with the Everfree! Unless this community is completely outside, anything that's actually within Everfree is not easily detectable."
  • Starlight: "And why is that?! It found my old community now named Shareville no problem for being a remote area!"
  • Golden Oak: "Well, yes, but that's because your former village wasn't blocked off by Everfree Magic, an untamed magic usually countered by the Tree of Harmony, but thing is, both forces end up balancing each other out, so, trying to find Sunset Springs would be, a bit of a crapshot."
  • Sunset: (Sighs)..... I guess we're gonna have to look for it on hoof.
  • Starlight: We clearly don't have much of a choice since Oak said Everfree and the Map's magic kinda contradict each other.
  • Twilight: I blame Discord for that.
  • ???: Did someone call me? (Discord appeared)
  • Discord: Because the answer to your question is, well, that wasn't me. That stuff is really Gaia's work. I just figured the magic was the perfect fertilizer for my Plunderseeds. The woman was VERY diverse with her forest life.
  • Sunset: Figures.
  • Discord: Anyway, sorry to pop in unannounced, but we were kinda looking for you guys.
  • Twilight: We?
  • Discord: The Lodgers and Kat. We thought you'd still be in Sire's.
  • Twilight:... Well, turns out, that's where we'd find clu-
  • Discord: I got that. Yeesh, if you ask me, this extension of the Tree of Harmony is STILL mad at me for weed-infesting it's turf... Or at least, TRIED to before I was stoned.
  • Sunset: Okay, can we NOT phrase it like that?
  • Discord: Not MY fault people these days take it that way... As much as I'd LOVE to take credit for it. Hahaha. Anyway, I got the crap I need from you. I'll tell the Lodgers, and HOPE that we don't have to lose you again. Especially Shen. You never know when he gets cranky at the wrong moments.
  • Starlight: Then you better have safety gear on.
  • Discord: (Gave himself comical safety armor) Way ahead of you. (He snapped and teleported away)
  • Sunset: "..... He is most certainly the kind of guy that's, all over the place."
  • Starlight: "Learned that the hard way myself with him once."
  • Sunset: Really? What happened--
  • Starlight: Long story, don't ask. But wait, isn't the Tree of Harmony CONNECTED to the Everfree Forest?
  • Golden Oak: It's not that simple. Trust me. The Tree of Harmony and the Everfree's magic are both entirely separate.
  • Spike: Well, you girls hope that Shen isn't THAT peeved when the heroes find you. Or better yet, the episode ends up having them flying around constantly looking for us, and by the time they do, you'll have already saved the day without them.
  • Sunset: Pfft! I can see THAT happening. Twi? There anyone in the Everfree that we can ask for directions?
  • Twilight: Uhuhuh! It's supposed to be YOU TWO, remember?
  • Discord: (Teleported in again with a beaten-up suit of armor) Ask for Equestria's variants of Timber Spruce and Gloriosa Daisy. THEY might know.
  • Twilight: DISCORD!!
  • Discord: Oh, learn to kiss the Map's nonexistent ass LESS, why don'tcha? Hahahahaha! Besides, Map's not complaining when the LODGERS help you on friendship missions, now is it? So long as the ones it CHOSE do the most work, it's not that big a deal.
  • Twilight:... (Sighs)
  • Discord: Hey, you're the smart one, you should've recognized these loopholes sooner. Besides, I am NOT in the mood to follow the Map's BS rules when I just came out from a Shen rage.
  • Starlight: Did missing us make him THAT mad?!
  • Discord: Oh no, that was because of another idiot Lodger moment. I swear, these days, ANYTHING can set that crazy peacock off. What does Celestia even SEE in him?
  • Twilight: Nothing you'd understand. And please, do NOT mock my loyalty to the Map.
  • Discord: I was JUST saying, they needed answers they weren't going to get any sooner, so SOMEONE had to tell em. Who could they POSSIBLY ask on such short notice in the EVERFREE F***-YOU FOREST?! Mare-Zan is likely doing her own thing, Zecora is a little too cryptic with HER iambic pentameter gibberish, no racism intended, and-
  • Twilight: They could've just asked Aspen in Thicket, you know.
  • Discord: Yes, but aside from the OTHER friends you all have who live in the Everfree, I think I'd recommend a source that DOESN'T draw attention.
  • Twilight:... How do MANY of them even DRAW attention?
  • Discord: Don't ask me, ANYTHING random can happen. We're IN a cartoon after all, and we must THEREFORE DO CARTOONISH S*******T! (He juggled his own body parts with his detached arms)
  • Sunset: Whatever, it works. We don't care WHO we ask, as long as we get what we need.
  • Twilight: (Sighs) Well, don't expect anymore meddling from US.
  • Discord: Uh, I think you mean, don't expect anymore meddling from YOU and YOUR lackies.
  • Twilight: Friends.
  • Discord: Whatever. Just... Be sure you signal your location when you get to Sunset Springs. Shen's bad mood REALLY set him off like TNT inside an ocean of gasoline filled with nuclear bombs.
  • Twilight:... Weirdest, metaphor, ever.
  • Discord: It's me. Let me be me, sis. (He teleported away)
  • Sunset:... Okay, if that's enough filler for this moment, bleh, this fourth wall stuff tastes weird to say, how Pinkie even LIKES it I may never know, then we better get moving. Twi, where IS your version of Timber and Gloriosa? We've known them for a while since Human Twi is dating Timber.
  • Twilight: "That's, an awkward thought I now have. Ahem, but, I suspect they may be in the deerlands in a decent walk into Everfree. They're friendly, but they're VERY protective of plants. They get testy for even using a dead tree as a bridge. Learn that from personal experience in the comics."
  • Sunset: Oh, yeah, the comic Linkara reviewed.
  • Twilight:... Of COURSE that's where you'd remember it. But can you blame them? From what I read about them, they were created by Princess Environa, the Alicorn goddess of life, to act as guardians of life. The Everfree Forest, according to legend, is the last remnant of what life was like back in the Alicorn Era.
  • Starlight: Whoawhoawhoa, you mean the ENTIRE WORLD'S FORESTS were like the Everfree back then?
  • Twilight: Apparently. But anyway, I HAVE met this world's versions of Timber and Gloriosa before.... Spike, when was that? I can't remember. I remember they were near the Everfree, but that's all I remember.
  • Spike: "And suddenly I'm the old continuity reminder. It was during that Funland Side mission during when we first fought Yakotaur."
  • Twilight: "Right, right. It's just that, that was so long ago and so much has happened since."
  • (Deadpool): Especially since MSM tried in vain to search for that moment on the Wiki. The search engines these days sure suck c-
  • Everyone: Shut UP!
  • (Deadpool): Okay! But only because I don't want my balls to heal in cause of something happening to them again. That's the most PAINFUL part to regenerate.
  • (MSM): Kinda the POINT!
  • (Deadpool): Whatev. (He left)
  • Spike: "... Well, as for remembering that Yakotaur adventure, it didn't help that it was a side mission to the fact that it was about going after an over powered Yak-Minotaur hybrid."
  • Sunset: "....... Annnnnd now I am envious of you that you got to face more super magical threats. The most I got were exiled Sirens and basically Human You being a Nightmare Moon Stand-in!"
  • Starlight: And from what you told me, Gaia Everfree possessing YOUR Gloriosa.
  • Sunset: Thank you. But, actually, it wasn't Gaia possessing her. That was just a story her brother made up for their attempts to save Camp Everfree from that dimension's Filthy Rich's mortgage and she just got drunk off Equestrian magic to take it by force. The magic just so HAPPENED to be of Gaia's origin.
  • Starlight: Sounds ALMOST like she possessed her.
  • Sunset: Well, it wasn't. Granted, it did gave her Gaia's voice, but that was just a part of it being of Gaia's magic.
  • Twilight: "But, make no mistake. The thrill of such adventures wears thin for how often these things occur. In fact, I kinda figured the Millipede incident was enough for adventures of this dimension can give."
  • Sunset: "Hey, to be fair, that doesn't legally count, Millipede wasn't even from the dimension he was initially imprisoned in!"
  • Starlight: Sunset, focus.
  • Sunset: Right. Finding our mom. Was just making a point here.
  • Twilight:... Well, good luck, then. Just, be weary. If Discord, Kat, and the Lodgers are gonna come for you, ESPECIALLY if Shen's in a bad mood thanks to the idiot Lodgers, then you better hope the villain for the episodic week, or month, depends how long it goes by given these slow developmental cycles, doesn't ACTUALLY show up.
  • Sunset: We DO... A LOT! C'mon, Star.
  • Starlight: Right behind you, Sun. (They left)

Everfree Forest

  • Sunset: (The group are just at the outskirts) Okay, this is it.
  • Starlight: "Now we have to keep in mind that the Everfree Forest is a rough neighborhood. Just about anything can jump at you."
  • Sunset: Well, whatever comes our way, I'm sure we can handle it.
  • Starlight: Mmmmmm, you sure about that?
  • Sunset: Oh, just get a move on. (The group set forth and arrived at the Everfree Wildlife Park)... Not bad.
  • Starlight: I have to say, since we beat Yakotaur, we DID completely forget about the place. Now look at it. It's like Well-To-Do was never even here.... Saying this even despite never being here before then, but, ya know what I mean.
  • Sunset:... So, where are Gloriosa and Timber?
  • Starlight: "I'm sure they're somewhere."
  • Sunset: It's... Gonna be really awkward meeting them here after I already met their counterparts. Glad Twilight's not here because, again, they're dating in Human Equestria.
  • Starlight: I STILL don't see a reason why she and Flash are together.
  • Sunset: NOBODY does. So how will I know what they look like?
  • Starlight: "Well, here, they're deer."
  • Sunset: ".... Okay, fair enough, not everyone I met in the human realm has to be a pony here."
  • Starlight: Nope.
  • ???: Uh, Glori, is somepony out there?
  • ???: I dunno, lemme check. (Equestrian Gloriosa came out) OH SNAP, YES, THERE IS! I think it's Princess Twilight's pupil!
  • ???: HER?!? I, EHE, GOOD!! I THOUGHT IT WAS ANOTHER BAND OF WILD ANIMALS MIMICKING PONISH AGAIN!!! (Equestrian Timber came out and fell on his back)
  • Timber: OHHH!! My back!! Why wasn't I born a PONY?!?
  • Gloriosa: We BOTH asked that many times, Tim. So... You're-
  • Timber: TWILIGHT'S STUDENT... (Sees Sunset)... S?... Ehe... Well, any friend of hers is a friend of mine.
  • Sunset:... Just as I thought. He has a crush on Twi.
  • Starlight: Loads of people do. You should've met Sandy's twin brother.
  • Timber: I DO NOT HAVE A CRUSH ON HER!!!... THAT much.
  • Gloriosa: Pfft. You should've seen him in his room wishing the Park had an employee recommended from Twilight.
  • Timber: GLOR, NOT IN FRONT OF OTHERS!!!!
  • Sunset: "Aaaand this just got very very awkward."
  • Timber: "(Sighs), Sorry. I mean, I know she has that Flash Sentry guy, but, is it weird if I say I half-wish Twi would get into Polygamy?"
  • Starlight: "...... Yes. That is weird of you to admit that."
  • Timber: "(Blushed) Sorry. Though she doesn't have to get into polygamy, it was just a thought."
  • Starlight: "Just figured I'd be honest with you."
  • Gloriosa: Anywho, what brings you two here?
  • Sunset: We're here for answers on where to find Sunset Springs. (The two looked awkwardly at each other)
  • Gloriosa:... Yeah, uh, how to put this with tact. See, that place isn't easy to find on its own.
  • Timber: Uh-huh. It's got it's own magic.
  • Starlight:... What, KIND, of it's own magic?
  • Timber: You see, it... Only shows up publicly around spring, and it's still January. They don't call it Sunset SPRINGS for nothing.
  • Sunset: "Which I think adds into why the Cutie Map couldn't find it."
  • Gloriosa: Oh, Timber, no wonder you like Twilight. Your smarts are just as charming.
  • Timber: Save it, sis, you have to be unrelated to me to get me interested.
  • Gloriosa:... If I WASN'T related, I'd kiss you immediately for that.
  • Timber: PLEASE don't say that regardless. Incest is STILL and always WILL be wrong.
  • Gloriosa: Hehehehe.
  • Sunset: AHEM!
  • Timber: Right right right. See, the magic at play here is that the greens need to be present. And again, winter.
  • Sunset:... Wow. That is SUCH inconvenient timing. So, there's no way into Sunset Springs at the moment?
  • Timber: I didn't say THAT. It's still a magic. You unicorns have a knack for mastering that stuff. All the magic does is make the town look abandoned.... It's a kind of magic that's been with their tribal inhabitants for a long time.
  • Sunset:... WHY didn't mom TELL me ALL about this place instead of only SNIPPETS of it?!
  • Starlight: Get in the bandwagon, Sun, I'm as surprised as you are.
  • Timber: Relax, they're not tribal anymore. They've been civilized for decades. They just don't look that way outside of spring. It's... A pretty nifty camouflage in the most dangerous forest in Equestria.
  • Sunset: Makes sense.
  • Timber: "Just keep in mind they're not much for visitors though, for, obvious reasons."
  • Sunset: I'll take any chance to find our mom.
  • Starlight: "Same."
  • Timber: Well, good luck, then. You'll find it somewhere in the northern Everfree Forest. Just find the hill that the Sunset Springs itself was named after. Atop the waterfall hills is a sun-shaped crystal that, when given actual sunlight, BEHAVES like the sun... Except in a way that doesn't blind you when you look at it, though it's still too much. It just makes the crops bloom, and it's basically the source of all the magic in the springs. In the spring, it removes the camouflage.
  • Starlight: Why spring, anyway? If it's supposed to be a disguise from the dangerous creatures of the Everfree, then why does it wait until the time when life is at it's blooming point? The moment which, you know, signifies rebirth?
  • Sunset:... Now that you mention it, a sun-shaped crystal? That sounds like one of the stories of the Alicorn goddess of spring, Vernal Season. She kept a crystal just like that in her home in the Everfree... You don't think that-
  • Gloriosa: It is, actually. Sunset Springs was built right on her homeland... Not the one she was born in, but the land she made her HOME in. The sun-shaped crystal, or in legend, the Heliocentrite, was used by her to change the season from winter to spring instead of the usual Winter Wrap-Ups. But since it has been without it's master for a long time, that means it's power is not as great as it used to. It can only do it's job in Sunset Springs.
  • Sunset:... Again, WHY DIDN'T OUR MOTHER BRING US THERE?!?
  • Starlight: I know, right?
  • Gloriosa: "To be fair, I can't imagine any pony, even ones familiar with the springs, would actively take their children into forests infamous for their danger just to go to a specific obscure spot not recognized in pony maps. So, maybe consider that."
  • Starlight:..... Fair point. But, let's not keep asking ourselves that, it'd get REALLY annoying REALLY fast.
  • Timber: "Also because that your mother would've looked like a bad parent dragging her kids into Everfree just to go to a spot not normally known for its tourist industry."
  • Sunset: "You really like to hammer that in, do you?"
  • Starlight: Yeah, the point's ALREADY been made, Timber, don't push it! Okay, so, it's somewhere north in the Everfree, and there's a sun-shaped crystal on it's hill. Seems like an easy thing to notice.
  • Timber: Not exactly. The sun crystal acts like an ACTUAL sun. It blinds people who get too close.
  • Starlight: Sunset? Sunglasses.
  • Sunset: Sunglasses?
  • Starlight: Sunglasses. (They put them on)... You were saying, deery?
  • Timber:... No comment. Buuut, it's also like a laser. It can deter attackers that way... Not that it's THAT aggressive, but that's if the ponies see anycreature who enter it as a threat.
  • Sunset: Wow. Just... Wow. Vernal must've been PRETTY antisocial to make it that way.
  • Timber: "To be fair, this is because the place's in Everfree. Not a place known for friendliness to ponies."
  • Sunset: "Touché. Still, feels a little overkill from a goddess of life. Sounds like the complete opposite of what any goddess of life should do."
  • Timber: Well, that's NOT what the Heliocentrite was made for anyway. The ponies just modified it for use as a self-defense.
  • Sunset: Okay, whatever, let's find it.
  • Starlight: And where SPECIFICALLY in the Northern Everfree IS this Heliocentrite?
  • Sunset: Does it matter? We can still teleport there.
  • Starlight: No we can't. If you don't know where it is, then you can't teleport there.
  • Sunset: What kind of rule is that? We can just teleport to the DIRECT location.
  • Starlight: Teleporting is not as easy as just expecting to go to the EXACT location. You HAVE to know where it is, or else you'll just be teleporting to an unspecific destination.
  • Sunset: Hmmph. I thought magic was supposed to do ANYTHING without logic.
  • Starlight: Yes, but how can you expect it to be used WITHOUT rules? We NEED rules to use them, otherwise we'd cast ANY random spell willy-nilly. We have to use a spell in a specific set of rules to make it work. And we CAN'T teleport TO Sunset Springs UNLESS we know where it is SPECIFICALLY. Without that, we'd be just teleporting anywhere and into dangerous areas around the specific area.
  • Sunset: But can't you just HOME IN on the location? Like track the location and then go directly there? Like, Goku's Instant Transmission or something?
  • Starlight: Sunset, sis, can you STOP acting like this kind of magic is meant to work in your favor? Locations can't just be HOMED in.
  • Sunset: Sorry, it's just, I barely use magic in Human Equestria, and thus I tend to get out of practice using it as a unicorn.
  • Starlight: Sorry, but that's your own fault.
  • Sunset: BUUUUT, I'm NOT just arguing this because I expect it to be easy. I'm arguing this because there's a SIMPLE solution. Goku's IT works by locating other ki sources then teleporting directly to them. But like teleportation, it requires concentrated focus. Magic can do the same thing, can't it? Sunset Springs HAS it's own magic, so why not locate IT'S magic source?
  • Starlight: Because THIS magic is Alicorn Goddess in nature. Too large for a normal unicorn to process.
  • Gloriosa: Ahem? Are we, interrupting?
  • Sunset:... You have something to say?
  • Gloriosa: Yes, actually. You could've just asked the deer that can use magic here to help you in that regard. All us deer are attached to the magic of the Alicorns of Life, INCLUDING Vernal. You can simply ask the nearest deer mage to locate the magic source FOR you. They're perfectly able to process the Alicorn magic.
  • Starlight:... Well... Why didn't you just say so?
  • Gloriosa: Why didn't you ask?
  • Sunset: Well, seems like something you should have brought up, frankly... Ugh, sometimes our family's rottenness can get the best of us. Sorry, but... You know who can help us in THAT regard? We are NOT just going to teleport willy-nilly around the Northern Everfree until we find the Heliocentrite Hill, and risk either feeling so numb it tickles, or teleporting DIRECTLY into something like the inside of a manticore, cragidile, hydra, or whatever.
  • Starlight: Hey, at least you retained SOME knowledge on how teleporting works.
  • Sunset: Don't push it.
  • Gloriosa: Well, I believe the nearest one who has mastered the Alicorns of Life's magics are a deer named Belladonna. But nocreature had ever seen her in ages. Legend had it that she lived in the Alicorns' Era and knows the most about the Alicorns of Life, keeping herself alive by the magic of the forest itself and giving back to it in return through the mycelium networks in the ground. So that in essence makes her, a nutrient benefactor for the Forest in general. She knows how to maintain this forest and is said to be the very reason the forest is the last Alicorn Era forest left in the world.
  • Sunset:... Ooookay... And do you believe it's real?
  • Gloriosa: Honestly, 50/50. Hard to tell when something is real or make-believe in a world like this. I once thought Windigoes were a myth until I saw them with my own eyes last month.
  • Starlight: LAST MONTH?!
  • Gloriosa: I know, right? THAT'S how unpredictable this world is. So, if you're willing to go to Sunset Springs without being eaten first, then Belladonna SHOULD provide that for you. She's said to live in the most dangerous parts of the North-Central Everfree. Though if you want MORE info, you can always ask King Aspen in Thicket. He should ABSOLUTELY know more about Belladonna than we do.
  • Sunset:... If you say so. (The group set of for Thicket

Thicket

  • Aspen: "So you're looking for Belladonna for guidance to Sunset Springs?"
  • Starlight: "Essentially."
  • Aspen: "..... This is a, complicated request. Not that I know not of where she is, but, it's the matter of wanting Belladonna to be found."
  • Sunset: "Dare I ask for the hesitance? Look, if it's because her place is at a dangerous territory, we were both Students of Celestia at one point, with Starlight now transferred to be the student of THE Princess of Friendship! We're at a point that whatever predator of Everfree is now only a decent challenge to fight AT BEST!"
  • Aspen: "And I don't distrust that, but my reasons are different. For some time now, her territory has been patrolled by Poacher Griffins that rich to capture her in the name of some yet named benefactor that hired them and promised them wealth beyond even this world for her capture."
  • Sunset: "Okay, then at least the Lodgers have something to do then. If you agree to spill the beans about where Belladonna lives, we'll have the Lodgers take care of your Griffin Poachers."
  • Aspen: ".... Well, they have done well when the Funland incident happened, so, fair enough. But be warned that these are not ordinary Griffin Poachers. They're lead by cousin of a famed Game Hunter Griffin by the name of Gameron Hunterson: Poacha Hunterson."
  • Sunset:... Wow, brought a LOT of expectations on their daughter when they gave her THAT name, did they?

Flashback

  • (Aspen): "Whereas Gameron hunted for sport within relative legality reasons, Poacha does no such thing. (Silhouettes of Poacha and her trope of Griffin Poachers are seen) Poacha reserves herself to hunt down the rarest of creatures and does so for the highest price. And from what the trees told us, she was promised a "Multiverse" of wealth in return for the capture of Belladonna. She and her troupe have set up camp in the Everfree of Bella's territory ever since. This camp in the meanwhile has also became an operation of sorts of on the side poaching of the creatures of Everfree, selling them for profit on the part of the minotaur black market controlled by the Griffin Mafia and Minotaur Cartels."

Present

  • Sunset: "So, not a nice Griffin I get?"
  • Aspen: "Well, Griffins are kinda infamous for attitudes adjustments, not meaning to be assumptious, but, I hardly consider Poacha to be an example of the contrary."
  • Sunset: Well, duh, what did they expect giving her a name like that? Why? Was it because they wanted her to be a poacher like the-... Wow, answered my own question there.
  • Aspen: Just be weary. Those griffins have been at this for years.
  • Starlight: Oh, we will. But we're also gonna look into the bastard who hired them. Something tells me whoever sent them is afraid of this deer in general.
  • Aspen: Perhaps so. A deer like Belladonna would most definitely be a threat. But... Who would bother with such diabolical pursuits here? Since we drove out Well-To-Do, nocreature has DARED do bad here.
  • Starlight: "Well either these Griffins and their hirer didn't get the memo, or just don't care about that."
  • Sunset:... Or, it could also be that somecreature was INSANE enough to do so. We'll worry about that later. Right now, we need to look for this Belladonna deer.
  • Aspen: "Well, for safety reasons, I can't risk Belladonna by being TOO specific in concerns for spies. But I will offer this. Belladonna is nomadic in nature, and has three favorite mediation spots, Green Stone Alpines, Cragodile Valley, and Poison Joke Fields."
  • Starlight: "..... Pretty extreme places. Green Stone Alpines is a very treacherous hilly place, and Cragodile Valley and Poison Joke Fields.... Well the name speaks for themselves."
  • Aspen: "A deer of Belladonna's nature has nothing to fear of such place. She's a creature of grace, is able to connect with even the most dangerous creatures, even if they were spawned from Tartarus itself, and has a natural immunity so great, even outsider poisons mean nothing."
  • Sunset: "And I think those things alone might be why someone would want the Griffin Poachers after her."
  • Aspen: But be weary of something else. The Poison Joke Fields have gained a infestation of it's Killing Joke cousin lately and Belladonna is said to recently be exterminating this virulent strain. She's been limiting both cousins to their respective areas.
  • Sunset: Oh Alicorns! Killing Joke is NASTY stuff. They don't just afflict people with comical symptoms, the symptoms themselves can kill.
  • Starlight: Exactly. They seemingly killed Fluttershy by turning her into a tree in one of the more... Gruesome timelines of Equestria.
  • Sunset: Being turned into a tree is technically not death. Trees ARE living things.
  • Starlight: Yeah, but being turned into a tree for too long when it's not cast carefully can... Well... Permanently take away the person said tree used to be. But yes, Killing Joke is NOT the pretty kind of flower.
  • Aspen: It's fine. You just need phantasmal flower to make a cure for the afflictions.
  • Sunset: Well, you said Belladonna is recently weeding out the Killing Joke there, meaning that she may very well be there.
  • Aspen: That's not the only thing she's been doing recently. The Green Stone Alpines have been infested with the SAME Killing Joke infestation and so have the Cragodile Valley.
  • Starlight: Wait, what?... Killing Joke infesting THREE places at once?... That CAN'T be a coincidence.
  • Sunset: Yeah. Something's not right. I think... Somepony's DEFINITELY doing bad in the Everfree.
  • Starlight: Whoever it is, he/she's making it VERY difficult for OTHERS to find Belladonna.... Which is kinda the point when I think about it.
  • Aspen: Then I advise you search all three locations carefully, and beware the Killing Joke infestation. They are a pelagic species, meaning it can move on its own with it's vines. I can offer you some phantasmal flower antidote, but it's in short supply since... Well... Now that I think about it, many deer in Thicket have been experiencing Killing Joke afflictions.... How is it that only now do I realize they're all connected?! What kind of leader am I?
  • Sunset: One who's still mortal nonetheless. Whatever's infesting the area with these flowers, we'll take care of it.
  • Starlight: Let's go. I fear now that mom's in danger. Thanks heaps, your highness.
  • Aspen: Don't mention it. First, let me give you your antidotes. You're going to need them. There's NO way you'll avoid even TOUCHING the Killing Joke before you meet Belladonna.
  • Starlight: Again, thanks heaps.

Green Stone Alpines

  • Starlight: (They saw the Killing Joke infestation spreading across the giant trees)... Oh Gaia, it's worse than I imagined it was.
  • Sunset: I agree. This is DEFINITELY somecreature else's work. This plant CAN'T accumulate to THIS level naturally. They are being accelerated in growth at an EXTREMELY rapid rate. Almost as if whoever planted them wants everycreature from the outside to... Stay out of their turf.
  • Starlight:... Definitely the same one who hired those Griffin Poachers.
  • Sunset: No duh about it. My only question is.... Why?
  • Starlight: "Well, I'll say this. Alicorns forbid if it involves Sunset Springs."
  • Sunset: Let's hope it doesn't even involve Mom.
  • Starlight: "Same."
  • Sunset: So, where do we start?
  • Starlight: "Let's check out Cragodile Valley next, I don't think Belladonna's here."

Meanwhile...

  • Iago: (The Lodgers were waiting for Sunset and Starlight's signal)... AHHH, this is taking TOO long!
  • Shen: PATIENCE!
  • Iago: Yeah, like I haven't heard THAT before. I'm starting to be as frustrated as you, Shenny boy.
  • Black Kat: Give it time, Othello.
  • Iago: IAGO! Othello is my joke cheapskate brother in the reforming monastery in Equestria, here!
  • Black Kat: Right. Anyway, these things take time. We never know when they deem it time to summon us. This is THEIR mish after all, not ours.
  • Iago: I DON'T GIVE A S***!! THEY'RE BORING MY NUTS OFF!!!
  • Donkey: Yeesh, your voice is annoying.
  • Iago: So are YOU!
  • Donkey:... Smarty beak.
  • Haroud: Just calm down, parrot. They'll signal us when they suspect something like, I don't know, the typical thing that happens in an episode.
  • Iago: OH, YEAH, THE TYPICAL VILLAIN TO DEFEAT! Bad enough OCs are getting in kahoots the Villain League, Dragon Scourge, and Team Nefarious lately, but now we grew SO PREDICTABLE, CHAOS IS GONNA HAVE A FIELD DAY!!!
  • Chaos: He's got a point there.
  • Iago: Don't believe me? I can expect them to flash their signal right there and THEN SpongeBob's gonna say (In accurate Tom Kenny impression) "There's the signal! Let's go, Lodgers!", (Normally) and then Dodo drives like the maniac he is RIGHT to their location- (The signal was sent)
  • (SpongeBob): (On intercom) There's the signal! Let's go, Lodgers! (Dodo drove the van like the maniac he was)
  • Iago: Did I call that one or WHAT?
  • Icky: "Okay, fair's fair, ya hit the nail on the head there." (They flew to their location and found Killing Joke surrounding the two)
  • Merlin: Oh dear.
  • Iago: Well, didn't call that it would be a normal cry for help. Waiit, haven't we dealt with those kinda plants before?
  • Icky: "Likely from a prior Equestria Episode that escapes me at the moment, as of the fact this is a flashback episode."
  • Trixie: "Those flowers are Killing Jokes!"
  • Patrick: "Wow, flowers that hate humor! We gotta be careful with telling jokes, guys!"
  • Gilda: She MEANS an offset cousin to Poison Joke. The one MSM stole from that Fallout Equestria timeline?
  • Icky: It's kinda funny when you rub off on me, Gilds.
  • Trixie: Had a relative who suffered to that stuff, and yet lived. Killing Joke is much wilder than Poison Joke. They cast mostly-fatal jokes on their victims based on any random point in their history no matter how minor. Like in said timeline, it turned Fluttershy into a tree for that remark of hers when the girls were raided by those buffalos in Appleloosa.
  • Icky: "Okay but it doesn't explain on how those two got caught in the middle all that."
  • Trixie: "I, don't think they knew too."
  • Starlight: "HOW DID WE GET SURROUNDED ALL OF THE SUDDEN?!"
  • Sunset: "I don't think these are even NORMAL Killing Jokes?! I never known the flowers to grow this fast?!"
  • Starlight: "WELL IT'S GETTING TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT NOW?!"
  • Sunset: NONONONO!! (The Killing Joke began to transform her into an out-of-control bratty Alicorn filly and Starlight into a filly with no cutie mark who was at her raging sister's mercy)
  • Trixie:... Not quite sure what that's all about.
  • Discord: Oh, I know. Sunset's transformation is because her father made her feel like an embarrassment in the form of a bratty little filly who wanted power she wasn't ready for. Starlight's transformation is because her own fillyish emotions made her feel like she didn't deserve a cutie mark and thus became talentless and unable to defend herself from the consequences of her actions.
  • Brandy:... Oddly specific guess.
  • Discord: Eh, I watched them fighting with their father.
  • March Hare:... Wow, that's rude.
  • Mad Hatter: I'll say it's rude! It's-
  • Discord: (With Mad Hatter's head) VERY VERY RUDE INDEED! (Normal head) Hey, don't forget who you're talking to. Just shut up and save them before they kill themselves.
  • Merlin: Not a problem. (He attempted to use a spell)
  • Discord: Uhuh, I wouldn't do that if I were you. If it was THAT easy, I would've done that already.
  • Shen: So much for you being able to do anything.
  • Discord: Killing Joke uses magic, so using magic will only accelerate their effects.
  • Merlin: Well that's a very arbitrarily-forced setback.
  • Discord: The only way to cure it is with phantasmal flower.
  • Gilda: And where the TART are we supposed to get that?! Oh, wait, you can bring it to us.
  • Discord: Ahem. There's rules that have to be followed, we can't just magically create NOR summon the flower here. Anything summoned or magically created has essence of magic on it, so using THAT on the Killing Joke would do JACKS*** except make the situation worse.
  • Merlin: And that's just A MORE ARBITRARILY-FORCED SETBACK!
  • Discord: Look, I don't make the rules, Gaia did when she MADE those practical jokers. You'll have to find the phantasmal flowers WITHOUT magic. (Everyone groaned) Oh cry me a river!
  • Phil: We'll never find the flowers in time! UGH, they're SCREWED!! (Just as they were both about to be destroyed, a gas orb exploded around them and not only drove all the Killing Joke vines away, but cured Sunset and Starlight of their conditions)
  • Sunset:... I... I'm so sorry, Star!
  • Starlight: It wasn't your fault.
  • Thunderclap:... Whichever one of us did that really thought fast.
  • Gloria: PRETTY sure none of us could have done that.
  • Thunderclap: Then who did do that?
  • Ed Otter: Perhaps it was HER! (They found a very tall and majestic female deer that glowed brightly and had a nature-themed garment that included antlers from a passed deer buck, both of which acted like tree branches)
  • Sparx: Holy crap, they were saved by a hippie witch doctor deer. And what's with the antlers, I thought does didn't have antlers.
  • Spyro: Must have belonged to a buck in life.
  • Starlight:... You're Belladonna, aren't you?
  • Belladonna:... ("I am. You should not have come here. I would have found you myself.")
  • Sunset:... I... Sorry... I don't speak Deerish, let alone OLD Deerish.
  • Belladonna:... I did not think so. The land of which you two seek I have already been.
  • Starlight: Wait, you've been to Sunset Springs?
  • Belladonna: Correct. This Killing Joke plague has come from there.
  • Sunset:... I... Ehe... Please tell me you're at least half-right. There's NO way a recently-modernized tribal land would do this.
  • Belladonna: Come with me. I shall show you personally what is coming to pass.
  • Starlight:... She certainly sounds like she's from the Alicorn Era.
  • Sunset: "Nice observation, Captain Obvious. Now let's go."
  • Starlight: "And away we go then." (They left and the Lodgers flew after them)

Belladonna's Treehouse

  • Starlight:... Wow. This tree makes Zecora's look like a cheap mud hut.
  • Sunset: Well she IS from the Alicorn Era. She has more experience than even Zecora.
  • Belladonna: The one called Zecora is but yet an average mage whose power is worthy of your friendship.
  • Starlight: Okay, so you've MET her.
  • Belladonna: Indeed. But she will not be enough to locate your mother. I'm afraid finding her is not your only concern. Sunset Springs is in utter bedlam.
  • Sunset: We noticed. This Killing Joke stuff is running rampant and there's some griffin poachers coming after you because somecreature is afraid of your power. As if the Everfree needs MORE reasons to be considered a dangerous place.
  • Belladonna: The Everfree will ALWAYS have more reasons for such fear. It is the last bastion of Alicorn-Era flora in Equestria. There is no other like it. Others all over the world have never matched up.
  • Sunset: Probably what you think since you might have been living here your whole life. No offense, really. But you have been here for a long time, so you never know what can change.
  • Belladonna: I do. I have traversed magical forests like this, and none have SLIGHTLY measured the danger. But this 'creature' who fears me, is the one who you must help me thwart. He wishes to violate the multiversal order for his own selfish gain.
  • Starlight:... PLEASE tell me it's not another situation like Lord Millipede we gotta deal with, I had enough of dimensional hoopla to LAST ME A LIFETIME!
  • Belladonna: No. But it will be of equal concern if nothing is done about it. I shall transport you to Sunset Springs as you desire, but in return, you must help me bring down this new threat.
  • Sunset: Hey, no refusal here. This threat is just as serious to us as it is to you. Princess Twilight's map sent us there to patch up... Parental issues, and... I suppose the Map sent us here for another reason.
  • Belladonna: Ah yes, that Map. Like the one Starswirl the Bearded used in his era when he planted the Tree of Harmony to spread his magic across the land. I have experience with it's magic myself. If you came upon the Map's request, then I shall have a chance yet.
  • Starlight: So then you'll help us, so we can help you, so that you'll help us? Oh my giddy Celestia, I'm starting to talk like a Lodger.
  • Belladonna: I shall. But we must first ensure that the Killing Joke infestation does not follow me here. I can smell some approaching.
  • ???: Ah, don't worry about THAT, lady. (The Lodgers were seen haven burned all of the Killing Joke with phantasmal flower fragrance)
  • Icky: Seriously, Discord, P***K move lying about those 'arbitrary rules' about the Killing Joke. PLEASE don't make a habit of pulling a Chaos on us.
  • Discord: Well, I gotta. You can't always win. Where's the fun in that, am I right, Chaos?
  • Chaos: Glad someone in Equestria GETS it.
  • Discord: But seriously though, these flowers DO feed on magic, just not as extremely as I said. Be careful.
  • Haroud: Ahem. We apologize for the interruption, miss, but you do not have to worry about the Killing Joke infestation. We have already taken care of it. With... Mixed results.
  • Iago: (He was literally solid gold as he was unable to fly) AAHHHH!! TOO, HEAVY, TO FLY HERE!! I MEAN, MUCH AS I LIKE TO BE LITERALLY WORTH MILLIONS, THIS ISN'T EXACTLY IN A PHYSICALLY GOOD WAY! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE CHANGE ME BACK BEFORE SOME RANDOM GOLD-EATING MONSTER OF THE EPISODE EATS ME?! (Merlin sprayed him with phantasmal flower fragrance and he was back to normal) Yeah, that's more like it.
  • Banzai: "(Literally has a Cactus for a butt) Worse, callback, to canon, EVER?!"
  • (Human Pinkie): "(LAUGHS), HE HAD A LITERAL CASE OF CACTUS BUTT?!"
  • Discord: HAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!
  • Lord Shen: IT'S NOT FUNNY!!! Ahem! Miss... Belladonna, was it? We're the Shell Lodgers, and we're here on behalf of the Princess.
  • Belladonna: "Celestia, Luna, Candance or Twilight?"
  • Lord Shen: "....... Yes." (Icky scoffed a soft bit)
  • Boss Wolf: "We're mostly here because of Twilight Sparkle though."
  • Belladonna: I see.
  • Icky: "Keep in mind though, Starlight and Sunset are mostly supposed to be here to amend Sunny's family life problems. We'll take care of any intermediate problem for them so they can do their friendship mission in peace, including the wiseguy who sent Griffin Poachers after ya."
  • Belladonna: Then in that case, I shall not have too much to worry about after all.
  • Sunset: Well, given the Killing Joke got many of them AND the fact that Discord likely pulled a Chaos on them just to ensure they lose JUST ONCE, I don't think it's COMPLETELY something that's comforting.
  • SpongeBob: Girls, girls, girls, remember who the STARS are of the show. It's a-US! So, we're the heroes of this story.
  • Sunset: By a large margin that this is your crossover series where you are dramatically altered versions of your canon-selves, especially for those that otherwise were villains. (All the Lodgers shattered into a new version of themselves with a glass shatter sound upon those words)
  • Kowalski:... Wow! That, was, a DIABOLICALLY IRONCLAD comeback.
  • Trixie: You, my good mare, have spent TOO MUCH time in that human dimension.
  • Belladonna: Ahem.
  • SpongeBob: Aw, you beat me to it. Eh, least it happened. You girls can focus on the parent plot point while WE handle the bad-guy-of-the-week plot point. Kay?
  • Starlight: Sounds good to me... I mean, if your story doesn't distract OURS!
  • Icky: "We can't promise absolute perfection, but we'll see about keeping A and B from inter-tweening too much."
  • Sunset: "Close enough."
  • Belladonna:... My apologies, but, have you all eaten some bad berries lately?
  • Icky: Don't question it, madam. Just take us to Sunset Springs.
  • Belladonna: "Very well. Just mind the locals. They're not used to visitors, even of ones native to this world, much less outsiders of such."
  • Iago: "Well that's a given to an isolated village in a normally notoriously dangerous forest."
  • SpongeBob: We've handled weary villagers before.
  • Sam: Yes, but this is a cartoon, so weary villagers are going to be different. And when it comes from the mouths of Sam and Max, you can believe it.
  • SpongeBob:... No comment. Alright, Belladonna. Beam us up, or however else you do your teleports.
  • Belladonna: You cannot rush my spells, strangers. I am working hard on it. (She unveiled a giant chimney)... You must enter the land through here.
  • Sunset:... So, this is like the Floo powder from Harry Potter, isn't it?
  • Belldonna: Why pray tell ask that when you are much well aware I know not of what that is?
  • Sunset: You're right, dumb question that might mean yes.
  • Belladonna: Instead, it requires THIS! (She unveils a large cauldron)... You all must enter this cauldron and state your desired location, with or without specifics, and pour in a handful of these herbs.
  • Sunset:... Well... It's NEARLY similar to the Floo Powder. That means so long as we don't mispronounce anything or half-ass it in any way, we'll get to my mom.
  • Belladonna: But I must warn you, I do not have enough herbs for all of you. So those of you who make it there shall have to signal your location. However, do it fast to avoid alerting your enemy.
  • Po: "Got ya, stealth mode!"
  • Mantis: "NO DRAGON COSTUMES?!"
  • Po: "Okay, that was ONE TIME! Every time I say that, THAT'S GOTTA BE THE TRADEMARK METHOD?! But if it helps, being that is a forest of monsters, that would make things worse there!"
  • Mantis: "Just thought I make something clear."
  • Po: You've made that clear since Day 2!
  • Sunset: I'll go first, since I basically already know how this works. (Gets into the cauldron and Belladonna adds some of the herbs) Sunset Springs! (She poured them in and she turned into green fire and went through the chimney and off towards Sunset Springs)
  • Icky's voice: "Magic always makes the FREAKIST s*** happen!"
  • Belladonna: Splendid. Now I only have enough herbs left for 6 people. I shall be one of them. Which ones of you will-
  • Starlight: Me.
  • SpongeBob: Me.
  • Spyro: Me.
  • Shen: Me.
  • Cynder: Me.
  • Icky: Me- AWWWW, F*** BALLS!!!
  • Belladonna: Then it's decided. Are you all ready? I must warn you that the experience is... Not pleasant for your first time.
  • Iago: Of course not. You get turned into GAS!! What part of that AIN'T pleasant?!
  • Soothsayer: Let us not worry about it. We shall simply let these six join Sunset at Sunset Springs, then wait for them to signal their location.
  • Belladonna: But again, be weary. Sending that message shall alert the one responsible for these Killing Joke infestations.
  • Shen: Then we must make haste. Belladonna, you shall go last since you have more experience with this.
  • Belladonna: Already decided that. (SpongeBob entered)
  • SpongeBob:... Sunset Springs. (The herbs were poured in as he turned into smoke and went off through the chimney) DAHAHAHAHAHA, THAT TICKLES- EHUUAH, I FEEL DEHYDRATED!!
  • Spyro:... Sunset Springs. (He went in next)
  • Cynder: Sunset Springs. (She went through)
  • Shen:... Sunset Springs. (He went through)
  • Belladonna:... Await our signal, heroes.
  • Boss Wolf: Don't need to give us a reminder, babe, we... Well, MOST of us have good memory.
  • Belladonna:... Sunset Springs. (She went through)
  • Icky:... What do we do now?
  • Soothsayer: We must be outside to see it. (They went outside)
  • Mr. Krabs: Well, we could see it if... (A rimshot was heard as the canopy blocked out the sky)... THE CANOPY DIDN'T BLOCK IT UP!
  • Crane: (Sighs) I got this. (He brought the first of the flightless Lodgers up while the other flying Lodgers did the same thing, putting them up in the trees)
  • Susan:... Admittedly, it's not bad up here.
  • Dormouse: Indeed. Once you get past all the magic and the beasts... It's not so bad a sight.
  • March Hare: Hmm. Glad some of us get ONE line every now and again.
  • White Rabbit:... Well, it honestly shouldn't take long before they send the signal.
  • Icky: "It better not. I'll be MORE than damned if I get attacked by the NEXT Everfree exhibit of the day."
  • Iago: Then grow the balls big enough to handle them.
  • Icky: Can you NOT?!
  • Thundera: Patience, mi amigos. I DO know how to control the weather, so-
  • Boss Wolf: You have weather powers? (Thundera was perplexed)... Ohhhhh, right, sorry, I forgot considering the fact you HARDLY USE EM!
  • Thundera: (Sighs) You're all cranky from the times we've been flying around following Sunset and Starlight, I know. But can we PLEASE not-
  • Iago: Ain't nothing personal, babe. We gotta do SOMETHING to wait. JUST waiting is BOOOOOOOORING!!!
  • Boss Wolf: She's your girlfriend? (Thundera, unamused at that sarcastic crack, struck him with lightning)... (Dubbed as Nostalgia Critic) Here's an idea: Stop insulting the controllers of the weather, that'll get'cha ahead in life. (Sighs) I wonder if the others are having more fun than us right now.

Chapter 3: Rough Welcome Committee in Sunset Springs/Meeting Sundown Shimmer

At a common household...

  • Spongebob: "So that's what it's like to be Santa Claus."
  • Lord Shen: "Oh sure, go for the low-hanging fruit."
  • Starlight: Where are we?
  • Belladonna: We should be in Sunset Springs.
  • Spongebob: "Let me check to make sure. (Picks out a nearby window)."
  • Lord Shen: "DUH, SQUARE ONE?! (Grabs him)?! We can't be spotted out there!"
  • Spongebob: "Oh don't worry, the place we're in isn't all that crowded."
  • Lord Shen thought about that and took a cautious peek himself. The place was almost a ghost town save for a lazy sleeping village guard.
  • Lord Shen: "..... Well, if this IS the Springs, it's not very proactive."
  • Spyro: (He also peaks out to see that beyond the first sight is a paradise with vast glittering cascading waterfalls atop a hill with a crystal shaped like the Sun, amongst ancient ruins)... I have to give them credit though, this camouflage is pretty impressive. Looks almost too real.
  • Shen: Unfortunately for them, I can tell what's fake and what's not.
  • SpongeBob: Oh really? I doubt that.
  • Shen: Even when we were told this is how they hide from the horrors of the Everfree, I could tell right away. Equestria is a world of magic, so I have somewhat developed a sixth sense for magic.
  • SpongeBob: That certainly would've been useful ages ago.
  • Shen: SILENCE, PLEASE! But seriously, you'd think this place would be more active.
  • Belladonna: "That would be because the Springs are under curfew."
  • Starlight: "Is that normal because this is in a dangerous forest or is that something the bad guy did?"
  • Belladonna: "Give or take. It is usually only active should a predatory creature of Everfree come nearby or during the springtime's dreaded storm season."
  • ???: "OY?!"
  • A very old Pony Mare was seen.
  • Starlight: YIKES, CRAZY GRANNY PONY?!
  • Old Pony Mare: "What the cockamamie Yankee Doodle Doo are you bunch doing in my house?!"
  • Spongebob: "...... Uh, we're the weirdos that invade your dreams! (Wobbles) Woooooooooo!"
  • Old Mare: "..... Ya know, I'm old, BUT I AIN'T STUPID?! I'm pretty sure I'm dang awake! Else I wouldn't be able to feel this! (Slaps herself in the face) OWCH?!...... That's how I know when I'm asleep or not?! SO WHO ARE YA?! SPEAK UP OR I'M GETTING THE VILLAGE GUARD?!"
  • Starlight: "Calm down, calm down, we'll explain! Just, you may want to take a seat."
  • Old Mare: I AIN'T TAKING NO SEAT UNTIL I GET ME SOME ANSWERS! YOU COULD BE CHANGEBEASTS IN DISGUISE WHO TAINTED MY SEAT WITH KILLING JOKE!! OR YOU COULD BE SHIFTWEEDS TAKING WEIRDO DISGUISES WAITING TO TIE ME UP AND EAT ME!!! ORRRRR YOU COULD BE BANDITS!!
  • SpongeBob: Changebeasts? Shiftweeds? Wow, this Forest really IS nasty.
  • Shen: Miss, can you PLEASE not be paranoid here? I've had my fair share of mental paranoia, so I know what I'm talking about.
  • Old Mare: NEVAAAAAAAAH!!! Last time I trusted strangers, HE ENDS UP TAKING OVER THE TOWN!!! F*** ME FOR LETTING MY GUARD DOWN IN A PLACE LIKE THIS WHICH I SWORE WITH MY LIFE THAT I WILL NEVER DO AGAIN!!
  • Belladonna:... This is, perhaps one of the most scared residents, Last Laugh. She was... Grand in her prime, until her tragedies drove her especially overprotective upon her lonesome self.
  • Last Laugh: GUILTY AS CHARGED, NOT! SURVIVAL IS NOT A CRIME, WOMAN!!!
  • Belladonna: Take a look at me, Laugh! I am Belladonna!!
  • Last Laugh: I KNOW A DISGUISE WHEN I SEE IT!! Last chance, get out or I call the guards!
  • Spyro: Madam, given your reputation here, you sound like the kind of pony whom nobody would consider believing. Your paranoia makes you into a Boy Who Cried Wolf, but NOT in a prankster way, but instead out of sheer paranoia.
  • Last Laugh: (Takes out a shotgun) SAY THAT TO MY FACE, DRAGON-LOOK-ALIKE!!! I DARE YA! THIS BLUNDERBUSS CAN TURN YOUR FIERY ASS INTO A MEAT SALAD FOR THE CARNIVOROUS BREED OF PARASPRITES FROM 50 YARDS!!
  • Cynder: It's a SHOTGUN!
  • Last Laugh: Or IS IT?!
  • SpongeBob: There's MEAT-EATING PARASPRITES?!? WTF, GAIA EVERFREE?! (A hole was blasted into him) PMMPH! (He regenerated)
  • Last Laugh: DON'T YOU EVER USE GAIA'S NAME IN VAIN!!! I OUGHTA... Wait... You're NOT one of those things.
  • SpongeBob:... Glad ONE of us could survive a test of THAT magnitude. So, you believe us NOW?!
  • Last Laugh: "Well, far as I know, Changebeasts and Shiftweeds don't regenerate. Or at least that's mostly a thing with you, strangely sentient cheese."
  • Spongebob: "I'm a Sponge. There's a cellular difference."
  • Lord Shen: "Well be assured that's something unique to him, the rest of us wouldn't survive that easily, of which, YOU LITERALLY COULD'VE ENDED UP KILLING A DEER I'M SURE IS A RESPECTED ENTITY HERE?!"
  • Last Laugh: ".... (Blushes and tosses the gun away) Um, sorry about that. In my defense, Sunset Springs ain't much for tourists. Cause, ya know, Everfree ain't exactly visitor friendly."
  • Sunset: "..... Now I think I got the OTHER reason why mom never took me here."
  • Last Laugh: You have a mom here?
  • Starlight: Yes, she and I do.
  • Last Laugh: "...... Okay, I know pony siblings tend to have different colors, but, I feel skeptical about you two being siblings for some reason."
  • Spongebob: "it's an SAF exclusive thing, really, kinda meant to be a nod that they're both basically re-skin Twilight Sparkles, CANON-Wise though, Hasbro might be contradictory here."
  • Last Laugh: "...... Wha?"
  • Lord Shen: "Never mind that if you can't speak Meta! Just be assured that they're related mostly by the fact their mother was into another father."
  • Last Laugh: "Okay that much makes sense."
  • Spyro: Yes, well, what do you know of a pony named Sundown Shimmer?
  • Last Laugh: "Oh sure I-...... Hey wait a corn-picking minute! Hey, Bacon-Hair Pony, yer name wouldn't happen to be Sunset Shimmer, is it?"
  • Sunset: "..... Yyyyeeeeesssss?"
  • Last Laugh: "...... WELL WHAT THE DANG NABBIT ARE YOU DOING OUT OF THAT OTHERWORLDLY DIMENSION?! After all, your mother let that Dr. KooKoo Brain even stay here and- (Spongebob and Starlight broke into laughing)!"
  • Spongebob: "AW MAN?! WAIT UNTIL THE GUYS GET AN EARFUL OF THIS?!"
  • Last Laugh: "..... As, I was saying, because of you SUPPOSEDLY being in another Dimension, your mother was desperate to have you back, so she hired that jackass of a doctor to build her a fancy portal machine to try and drag your ass back here?!"
  • Sunset: "..... Mom was, trying to get me back?"
  • Starlight: "So, by that, that means that, dad was being a jerk to try and lead you to be findable to mom, which means-........ CRAP BASKETS?! (Echoes which startles a villager guard)!"
  • Villager Guard: "HEY-DA-WHOSUM?! BOOSUM WHOOSUM?!....... (Goes back to sleep like an idiot)......."
  • Lord Shen: "...... Miss Starlight, we are VERY lucky that guard is not considerably competent!?"
  • Last Laugh: "Well, ya might get into more of a pickle with the Village Guard Captain, Captain Sue P. Er'Seriously'Competent."
  • Spongebob laughed again!
  • Lord Shen: "SQUARE ONE?!"
  • SpongeBob: Sorry! It burst out, for two reasons! One, Scroopfan and MSM are really getting lenient on literal naming. And two... who would name a guy Sue?! (Laughs)
  • Last Laugh: "Sue's a Mare, idiot. (Spongebob stopped laughing) But, I'll be fair, she is a bit of a body builder, so it's easy to get confused."
  • SpongeBob: (Laughs nervously) And I'll be fair by saying most of the guards we Shell Lodgers have seen in Equestria were all guys.
  • Sunset: "Can we focus here?"
  • SpongeBob: Right, sorry.
  • Spyro: Do you know where Sundown Shimmer lives?
  • Last Laugh: "What do I look like, a tour guide? I ain't the kind of pony that actively keeps track of where ponies live as if that's what my cutie mark wants or something!"
  • Cynder: "Then do you at least know someone who's job IS exactly that?"
  • Last Laugh: "Just Tracker, but, he ain't much for telling anything to strangers. Especially since them Changebeasts did it just to eat him. Ya'd think they'd be Changelings' problem, but no, surprisingly have nothing to do with Changelings, ironically for the word change in the name. Anyway, just be careful round Tracker. He's our finest guard, but he's also just as paranoid as me. Best watch where you step in his vicinity. He reacts like lightning.... Kinda hot- Uh, I mean, just be careful.
  • Lord Shen: "Ma'am, you look to be well beyond romance at this point."
  • Last Laugh: "CAN'T AN OLD GAL DREAM, DAMN IT?! BESIDES, PART OF IT IS BECAUSE OF THAT BLASTED AVEMETUS!! NASTY ABOMINATION!! But at least it wasn't one of them Youthtrap plants. THEY dry your lifeforce up like an accelerated time spell, and GROW INTO MANY BREEDS CUZ OF IT!! And do NOT, get me started on the Immortal-Sapper Flower, OR the Graveweed, OR EVEN THE GODDAMN YOUTH-EATING TAPEWORMS!!"
  • SpongeBob:... Did... Did you make that last one up?
  • Last Laugh: Pheh, I WISH!
  • Lord Shen: "..... I really have to question Gaia Everfree's reasonings for creating these things if you were to ask me."
  • Belladonna: "A lot of those were made literally in her sleep, she had no full control of those thing existing."
  • Lord Shen: "Well yes, but STILL! Even if it was unconsciously, one still has to wonder on why her magic over creating creatures has to be like this?!"
  • SpongeBob: "Well, as Icky would say, (In his voice while taking his form) Because Nature's F****D UP like that!"
  • Lord Shen: You ask me further, it's nature speaking the language of weeding out the sick, old, and injured. Carnivores EAT those types up.
  • Sunset: "Wait, are you trying to imply that otherwise, you're, younger than this?"
  • Last Laugh: "Eh, give or take. I was middle-aged at best."
  • Starlight: Thanks. Where can we find Tracker?
  • Last Laugh: "Guard House."
  • Starlight: Right.
  • Lord Shen: "Well that's clearly going to be an issue because those guards are likely not gonna trust us!"
  • Last Laugh: Heh. Be glad. If they had some xenophobian ticks on them, they'd be WAY worse.
  • SpongeBob:... OooooKAY, we're leaving before we get more freaked and paranoid with how many this lady's describing.
  • Cynder: Glad Bill isn't here. (They left)
  • Last Laugh: ".... Huh. Not bad folks. Abit of eccentric weirdos, but not bad."

Guard House

  • (Deadpool): "Wait, so we're just cutting to the chase, we're not gonna add some scenes of the group messing around with the guards? Okay then."
  • Tracker: Greetings newcomers. Name's Tracker Tales. I'm the local protector of this here magical place. Just, uh, you might wanna be careful around these folks. ESPECIALLY Last Laugh. We've recently had a... Takeover lately.
  • Sunset: So Belladonna told us.
  • Tracker: Uh, what are your weirdo friends doing? (They were about to send a signal)... Wait... ARE THEY SENDING A SIGNAL?!? NO!!! (He teleported to their location and stopped them)
  • Starlight: WHOA!
  • Lord Shen: MY GOODNESS!!!
  • SpongeBob: HEY, MAN, WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA?!?
  • Tracker: WE CANNOT LET ANYCREATURE KNOW OUR LOCATION, MORONS!!
  • Lord Shen: Relax, stranger, we're simply signaling our allies so they'll know where we are. And believe me, with this takeover stuff we heard you have, you'll need us.
  • Tracker: And how many are there of your 'allies'?
  • Spyro: A lot. As in, the kind that is numerous enough to be an army. We can handle this enemy of yours. Just, stop worrying and let us continue.
  • Tracker: NOT A CHANCE! Even if you DO make sense, then how do you know others won't see it? Heck, what makes you think Kookoo Brains won't see it?
  • Lord Shen: AHEM! Signal! NOW!
  • Tracker: AND I SAID NO!
  • Lord Shen: (He pointed his blade at him)... Trust me, sir, we are doing you a favor. And even if someone DOES see the signal, we'll make quick work of them.
  • Cynder: I can see why Last Laugh is into you, you're just as paranoid as she is.
  • Tracker: Oh, so you HAVE met her.
  • Cynder: Also, SHEN, WHAT DID WE SAY ABOUT THREATENING SOMEONE WITH THOSE BLADES?!
  • Lord Shen: That I only use them when they're needed, which is like right now. I have done this before and you weren't complaining then.
  • Cynder: Still, THIS is not what I would call-
  • Lord Shen: JUST, SEND, THE DAMN, SIGNAL!! This psychotic pony is going to use our distraction against us- (He regained his focus) UP! NOT SO FAST!... SO, DO IT!!
  • The Signal was sent.
  • Tracker: "YOU BLASTED INTERLOPERS?!"
  • Lord Shen: "Oh cry me a bloody river, would you rather continue to be enslaved by the madman in your village for the sake of secrecy that was ALREADY ruined in technicality by same madman anyway?!"
  • Tracker: "...."
  • Lord Shen: ".... I thought not."
  • Tracker: "..... Well just for that, YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT ME EVER HELPING YOU BUNCH WITH, WHATEVER IT IS YOU WANTED HELP WITH?!"
  • Sunset: "ANNNNND there goes the guy that could've help me find my mom, thanks a lot, Shen?!"
  • Spongebob: "We're sorry Sunset, we-"
  • Tracker: "Wait, Sunset?! (to Sunset)... Your last name wouldn't happen to be "Shimmer", would it?"
  • Sunset: "Yes?"
  • Tracker: "...... WELL WHAT'RE YOU DOING NOT IN THE DIMENSION YOUR MOTHER LET THE GUY IN HERE TO MAKE A PORTAL FOR?!"
  • Starlight/Sunset: "Long story."
  • Tracker: "..... Under normal circumstances, I wouldn't be quick to forgive people that just exposed our village-"
  • Lord Shen: "OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, IT WASN'T LIKE WE JUST EXPOSED THIS TO THE BLOODY INTERNET, IT WAS JUST OUR GROUP?!"
  • Tracker: "-BUT, I can make an exception for the daughter of a member of our village..... Even if she doesn't exactly have the brightest friends in the shed. Because, being frank here..... Your mother missed ya badly, Sunset..... Enough that she ended up taking stupid pills and trusted someone LITERALLY named Dr. Kookoo Brain!"
  • Spongebob: "(Laughs), That still gets to me! (Laughs!)"
  • Sunset: Exactly how bad is he for Mom to trust him so blindly?
  • Lord Shen: "We were already told by Belladonna about him messing with the bloody Killer Jokes and that he hired Griffin Poacher to go after Belladonna!"
  • (Deadpool): "Of which are disappointingly absent."
  • Sunset: I knew that part, but why would she trust him to make a portal to Human Equestria, birdbrain?! THAT'S my question!
  • (Deadpool): Who knows? And besides, you guys sure seem pretty safe. I mean, there's no Killing Joke around, so-
  • Lord Shen: MORON, DON'T JINX IT!! I do NOT like it when we're jinxed. Last time you jinxed us, it was a disaster.

Cutaway

  • (Deadpool): Ugh, gee, it sure is boring around here. I wish something would EXPLODE already. (This happened)
Patrick_that's_an_old_meme

Patrick that's an old meme

  • (Deadpool): BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA! AAAHA, AAHA, OH... PRICELESS!

Present

  • Starlight: "....... Well THAT came out of nowhere!"
  • Lord Shen: It took us a lot of magical effort to fix it... SINCE IT TOOK PLACE DURING THE MAGIC DROUGHT!!!
  • Tracker: "...... Do I even wanna know what goes on in your lives?"
  • SpongeBob: No you do not. We just need to wait for the others and- (They were teleported directly to them)
  • Tracker:... WHOA!
  • Merlin:... Hmm. I was expecting a big Killing Joke infestation.
  • Bill: At least we aren't being attacked by a monster again.
  • Donkey: Don't jinx it again, Bill!
  • Icky: "Well finally we're in the story in full again. So, what's the main bad of the episode THIS time?"
  • Spongebob: "You guys are gonna love it...... Dr. Kookoo Brain!"
  • Iago: (He laughed hysterically) I'M SORRY, I WOULD NEVER GET OVER THAT NAME!!
  • Crane: Why is the 'Sillynamia' Effect still laughable to us? Shouldn't it have gotten old long ago?
  • Iago: I dunno, it just keeps making new ways to make us laugh. Remember when we dealt with that Sillynamia Mafia? My favorite one was... PFFTT... Mike Hunt! AAAAAAAAHAHAHAAA!!!
  • Fidget: Uh, guys, mission! I can't believe I'M the one who's gotta bring us all back on track.
  • Tracker:... This is some 'army'. I can already tell they're the type that can be easily distracted by even themselves.
  • Lord Shen: I can assure you, good sir, that we HAVE discipline. We can bring down this Kookoo Brain for you- Oh my Yinglong, I can't believe I have to be saying that this entire mission.
  • (Human Pinkie): AHAH-STOP!!

Present, Human Equestria

  • Human Pinkie: I-I CAN'T BREATHE!! I CAN'T- AHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!! THERE'S, NO WAY, THAT WAS HIS NAME!! HAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
  • Sunset: Unfortunately... Yes, it was.
  • Human Pinkie:... (She puffed her cheeks in amusement)...

Later...

  • Sunset: (They waited near the bathroom as Pinkie was laughing hysterically inside)... Wow. That name actually made her laugh so hard she peed.
  • Human Rainbow Dash: Come ON! Is it really THAT funny?! I could've gone with a BETTER laughable name than THAT. Like, Mike Hunt.
  • (Human Pinkie): No, that doesn't work, because A. I'm not into vulgar humor, and B. The Lodgers already covered that.
  • Human Rainbow Dash: And yet you didn't laugh when they brought it up- Oh, right, vulgar humor is a no-go for you.
  • (Human Pinkie):... Someone say it again, I wanna make sure I don't pee myself next time I get laughing like this.
  • Human Rainbow Dash:... Kookoo Brain. (Human Pinkie was heard laughing and peeing)
  • (Human Pinkie): OHOHOHOHOH, THAT FEELS SO GOOHOOHOOHOOHOOD!! AAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
  • Sci-Twi: Is it really THAT funny? I mean, you'll laugh at almost anything.
  • (Human Pinkie): Well, part of it is because I had so much MORE to laugh at and I didn't want to let it out and not disturb Sunset's story. (The peeing stopped) AHHhhhh. Speaking of which, let's get back to it. My bladder's happily emptied.
  • Sunset:... Ehehe. Bathroom Humor..... Anyway...

Back To Story

  • Icky: Well, get used to it, Shenny Boy, because we're GONNA have to call him that this entire mission.
  • Lord Shen: "..... Bloody hell."
  • Voice: "OY, WHO SAID MY NAME?!"
  • Lord Shen: OKAY, SERIOUSLY?! THERE'S SOMEONE IN TOWN WITH THAT NAME?!?
  • Iago: What are YOU complaining about, that name sounds AWESOME! WHO'S GOT THAT NAME, I WANT TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR HAVING PARENTS WHO WEREN'T INFECTED BY THE SILLYNAMIA PANDEMIC!
  • Susan: PLEASE do not make that kind of joke in 20- Ohhhh, wait a minute, who even responded to that!
  • Bloody Hell: That would be ME! (A large red stallion in armor and having a flaming helmet for a cutie mark appeared)... I, am the town's head defender and hero.
  • Starlight: "Wait, I thought that leader thing was gonna be Captain Sue P. Er'Seriously'Competent?"
  • Bloody Hell: "Yeah ironically that name made it difficult for ponies to take seriously, so I had to take over."
  • Icky: "That does sound ironic."
  • Lord Shen: And are you implying that Tracker here is lesser incompairison?
  • Tracker: I'M A HERO IN MY OWN RIGHT! He on the other hand is a TRUE hero. He's survived the WORST the Everfree has ever thrown at us.
  • Pang Bing: Well, good, we have someone who can hold their weight in weapons and defense here.
  • Bloody: AHEM! Let us get the irrelevance out of the way. Now thanks to these paper-thin walls, I heard the vast majority of your conversation, but I just want to conform one thing. Are you truly the daughter of Sundown Shimmer?
  • Sunset:... Yes?
  • Bloody: Good. She would like to meet you more than ever now. She has just been dubbed the next leader of Sunset Springs.
  • Sunset:... Say what now?
  • Bloody: Yes. When Kookoo Brain took over the town and tricked her, causing our previous leader to be.... Killed... By the Killing Joke he set upon us... She stepped up to take the burden after... Blaming herself for everything.
  • Belladonna:... I'm afraid he speaks the truth.
  • Icky: "..... WELL HELLO, SUDDEN DARK TURN?!"
  • Sunset:... *Sigh* Well, at least I got SOME good late Hearth's Warming present to give her.
  • Bloody: Then don't tell her you didn't throw away your life by going in that dimension Kookoo Brain wants so much for nothing.
  • Sunset:... Well... Honestly, I don't know WHAT I got out of it. The only magical trick I can do in that dimension is empathic magic. This geode from one of the magic wells that Gaia had, it... It gives me the ability to see the past, memories, and feelings of whoever I touch, that way I can fix their problems. Now that I'm here to correct what I can guess still counts as a friendship problem-
  • Bloody: Say no more. You've proven what Sundown doubted.
  • Sunset:... You mean, she forgives me?!
  • Bloody: HELL no! She's STILL going to let out some steam she had kept in for who knows how many moons. After all, you DID leave her and make the ponies in Sire's Hollow mock her and her husband. Yeah, she did tried to get you back and did missed you, but WOOOOOO, does she also have BONES to pick?! And you could only imagine how intense they are NOW given that not only the guy she asked to help try to make something to try and found ended up turning out albeit PREDICTABLY untrustworthy, but now it ended up being we didn't even HAD to get into that mess to begin with?! YOU were bad enough on that too.
  • Starlight: Oh, sure, you HAD to get to me.
  • Sunset: Look, I came here BECAUSE the Map decided it was time for me and my sister to put the past behind us. I ALREADY got chewed up by my father, and I do NOT want my mother to do the same. The Windigos-
  • Tracker: Have already left our territory. We have always ensured that they leave with a share of food.
  • Banzai: Wait, seriously? You FEED those negativity-feeding horse ghosts?
  • Bloody: Of course. This is the Everfree Forest, where everything is out to get you. That alone will ALWAYS bring out negativity.
  • Iago: "Well WHY ISN'T THIS PLACE A WINTER WONDERLAND THEN?!"
  • Bloody: "Windigos typically prefer SENTIENT negativity. The forest just produces more like of an, untamable wilderness negativity. Not really enough to get them coming here in droves."
  • Iago/Icky: "Ahhhh."
  • Bloody: We've learned through the spirit of Hibernal eons ago that the Windigos are in reality very understood. They're just like every animal. They do what they do to survive, and they've even evolved to terraform upon feeding. They only thrive in frozen winter conditions, and there's hardly any negativity where they originate. So during winter conditions, they can easily start finding negativity to feed and terraform the land just long enough to feed their entire population. And in Equestria, since the ponies learned to treat each other warmly, they found ONE place to feed in all the 3 months of winter: The Everfree. We are the reason the Windigos never retaliate for what happened eons ago. We respect their place in the world of Equestria because nopony else will. MANY of them have stopped believing they even exist. But one of OUR duties as the ones who bare the burdens of Gaia and her family, is to maintain its magic, and one of them is to keep the Windigos from overhunting.
  • Starlight: You know, that explains a lot, and answers questions I never even thought of.... Do you know who created the race?
  • Tracker: That would be both Hibernal and Meteora. An experimental creation if you will. It was intended to curb excess negativity which breeds black magic. If black magic was to spread out of control, it would be a disaster. But since both Alicorn Goddesses died, the Windigos forgot their place and regressed into predators that repurposed their cold thermal abilities to use for hunting.
  • Kowalski:... THAT is actually a practical good, and is a good reason for them to exist in the first place.
  • Bloody: And you want to know the scariest thing? If the negativity got so strong, the Windigos could actually EAT someone.
  • Kowalski: They could what now?!
  • Bloody: Yeah. If there was a tyrant who had the most negativity of anypony else, then they'd simply hunt him down and eat him/her for ALL the negativity inside. But thanks to us, such a thing is impossibly rare. In order to keep the Windigos from hunting around Equestria in the winter months widespread, or even outside Equestria's borders, we must simply direct them to areas where they could actually do good. They've grown too feral and primitive to reason with, and thus we have to control them in their own language. Though some of these endeavors have backfired since that's how the Storm Clan even discovered weather-based magic and mastered it, it helped wonders for lands more grim than ours.... Oh boy, I forgot to tell you! There's Windigos arriving right now.
  • Everyone: WHAT?!?
  • Bloody: I'm actually RELIEVED more help arrived. Sundown needs to see you NOW more than ever. We NEED to direct the Windigos to a land rich in negativity.
  • Chi Fu: Well, then take Sunset and Starlight to her, while WE handle your Windigo business.
  • Bloody: Nonono, Sundown needs Sunset for this one. In fact, her ability to read somecreature's past, feelings, and memories, could prove useful. Not just for the Windigos, but for Kookoo Brain.
  • Starlight: Uh, the Map said this was ME and SUNSET'S mission.
  • Bloody: And it still is. We're experienced in the Tree of Harmony's magic, and any OTHER Tree of Harmony in the world.
  • Sunset:... Okay, what was that LAST part?-
  • Bloody: Never mind that. Come. I shall bring you and your sister to your mother.
  • Sunset:... (They went with him)
  • Trixie:... There's MORE than one Tree of Harmony?!?... Okay, Rhabdom's gonna FLIP at that.
  • (Deadpool): "So does that mean we can un-divergentised Season 9 now-"
  • (Scroopfan): "THE DIVERGENTENCE STILL STANDS, WILSON?!"
  • Lord Shen:..... Well he-
  • Icky: "Rhab's a girl, Shen."
  • Lord Shen: SHE won't be flipping NOW. We have work to do here. But seriously, that sea-changeling needs to change to a more feminate name because that CURRENT ONE is VERY easy to mistake her for male?!
  • Icky: "Well given what we previously discovered from the shenanigans of when Nefarious did the clone thing, I'm honestly not surprised there's more then one tree here, the T-o-H is implied to be super connected to everything on Equestria the land and Equestria the planet, so it makes sense that this is not a one tree job here and-"
  • Lord Shen: "May we PLEASE return to the point of relevance?!"
  • Icky: YES! Let's take care of this Kookoo Brain problem.
  • Lord Shen: UGH! How can I say that with ANY pride?
  • Icky: You can't. C'mon!

Sundown's Quarters

  • Sunset: (Bloody escorted her and Starlight to her quarters)... Mistress Shimmer?... Scratch that...... Mom? Your daughters have arrived.
  • ???:... (Deep breath)... FINALLY! (She came out as a middle-aged mare with a more orange-yellow coat, a wilder mane of bacon hair like Sunset's, but more resembling flames from the sun with orange and yellows, a sunset for a cutie mark, and a dark cloak)...
  • Sunset: Mom!... Is that y-
  • Sundown: YOU!!!
  • Sunset/Starlight: AND IT BEGINS!!
  • Starlight: "So much for this being happy."
  • Sunset: MOM, WE DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS!!
  • Sundown: WELL TOO BAD, MAKE TIME! I HAVE, TO SAY THIS! You have a LOT of nerve showing up HERE, after what you both did to me! You disgraced our family! For greed? For insecurity? YOU abandoned your home AND your family for some dimension with nothing to offer you, and YOU believed the words of a Cutie Mark COMMUNIST and got yourself abducted by a crazy bat woman because YOU blamed cutie marks for tearing a friendship apart. Give me ONE good reason why I, as the new heir to Sunset Springs, shouldn't BANISH you right now!
  • Starlight: "Cause it might end up helping Kookoo Brain long term?"
  • Sundown: "..... Oh sure, go for the low-hanging fruit."
  • Sunset: UGH! Do you REALLY think your family problems are MORE IMPORTANT than what's going on right now? You're SUPPOSED to be doing a charity for the Windigos so they won't run rampant, and already, you're SPEWING negativity! Was Kookoo Brain making a fool out of you REALLY hard on you?
  • Sundown: DON'T YOU TALK TO ME THAT WAY, YOUNG LADY!
  • Sunset: I'M NOT A YOUNG LADY ANYMORE!!! STARLIGHT, HELP ME OUT HERE AND GET THIS DEADBEAT TO SHUT UP!!!
  • Starlight: What am I supposed to say?!
  • Sundown: YOU STAY SHUT!
  • Starlight: WE'RE BOTH JUST TRYING TO- (She let out a loud whistle that got them both to be quiet)
  • Sundown:... THAT, is better.
  • Sunset:... Are you STILL doing that?!?
  • Sundown: (She whistled again)... Not, another, WORD unless I say so! Now, for starters, BOTH of you! ANSWER, THE QUESTION!
  • Sunset: (Having an angered face, took a deep breath)... I'm not saying anything! You've ALREADY done enough. You haven't changed ONE bit since we left. I was GOING to say that the Princess of Friendship sent us both to make up for our past, especially since Hearth's Warming has passed, and THIS is what I find?
  • Sundown: THAT IS ENOUGH! (She whistled again)
  • Starlight: "AND I MAY NEVER LOOK NOR LISTEN TO WHISTLING THE SAME WAY AGAIN NOW, THANKS?!"
  • Sunset: GRRRHHH!! THAT IS IT!! I'VE HAD IT WITH YOU!!
  • Sundown: Alright alright, let's just cut to the chase-
  • Sunset: No, I'm sorry, you lost me. You already lost me with that treatment. You want those Windigos to be provided food? Well, I have a LOT to get out of my CHEST!! YOU HAVE BEEN THE WORST MOTHER EVER!! YOU USE THAT STUPID WHISTLE TO CONTROL US LIKE DOGS, AND HAVE TOO MUCH EXPECTATIONS FROM US! YOU HAVE NEVER KNOWN THE FIRST THING ABOUT RAISING FILLIES SINCE YOU CAME FROM THIS PRIMITIVE DUMP! (As she continued, the temperatures dropped and snow began to appear) WHY DO YOU THINK WE BECAME SUCH WRECKS?! YOU TREATED US LIKE WE WERE FILLIES OUR ENTIRE LIVES!!
  • Starlight: Uh, Sunset? I think they're here-
  • Sunset: THAT'S THE POINT! I WANT THEM TO SEE THIS! WHAT DID YOU WANT FROM ME?! DID YOU WANT ME TO BE THIS PLACE'S DEFENDER EVEN WHEN I HAD DIFFERENT PLANS?! DID YOU DESPISE WHAT I WANTED TO BE INSTEAD OF WHAT YOU WANTED?! I WAS ALREADY, HUMILIATED, BY MY FATHER, AND NOW LOOK AT YOU! STILL THE WILD AND ARROGANT MULE THAT I CALL MY MOTHER!! YOU MAKE ME LOOK BAD IN FRONT OF YOUR OWN PEOPLE!! SOME LEADER YOU ARE!! MAYBE KOOKOO BRAIN DID A RIGHT THING HERE!! MAYBE- (Windigos stormed into the room and began to display carnivorous teeth) AHHH!!!
  • Bloody: Oh Hibernal! She's released so much negativity, the Windigos want to eat her.
  • Starlight: WAIT WHAT- BUT THEY'RE BASICLY ICE GHOSTS, HOW DOES THAT EVEN- UGH!!
  • Sundown: SUNSET, STOP, YOU'RE FREEZING THE ROOM!
  • Sunset: GOOD!!! YOU BROUGHT THIS UPON YOURSELF!!! YOU ARE SUCH A HORRIBLE PARENT! YOU AND FATHER!! YOU WERE SO BROKEN BY OUR DEPARTURE, YOU NEVER CHANGED!!! (She began to freeze) HOW COULD YOU HUMILIATE ME LIKE THIS AFTER ALL I'VE DONE?!? AND IN THE MIDST OF SUCH A CHERISHED HOLIDAY WHERE WE'RE SUPPOSED TO TREAT EACH OTHER WARMLY?! DO YOU PRIMITIVES EVER CELEBRATE THIS HOLIDAY?!? DO YOU?!?
  • Sundown: (Gulps) OKAY, I'M SORRY!!!
  • Sunset: TOO LATE!!! ALSO, HOW DO I KNOW YOU SAID THAT WITH SERIOUS INTENT AND NOT BECAUSE YOU'RE AFRAID OF BEING A PONYSICLE?! CAUSE RIGHT NOW, I DOUBT THAT APOLOGY?! I'VE ALREADY DOUBTED MYSELF AFTER WHAT FATHER SAID! YOU AND HE ARE THE REASON I LEFT IN THE FIRST PLACE! I WANTED TO MAKE MY OWN LIFE, WITHOUT YOU BOTH BEING A PART OF IT! YOU, ARE, HORRIBLE- (She completely froze except for her pointing hoof)....
  • (Deadpool): "Well that escalated quickly."
  • Starlight: MOM! DO SOMETHING!!
  • Sundown:... Alright! (She touched the freed hoof and Sunset began to use her empathy powers to see into the past)

Flashback

  • (Pony #1): HAHAH! How stupid do these two feel to have given birth to two awful fillies? (Ponies were treating her and Firelight with disdain)
  • Firelight: Honey, please, don't listen to them!
  • Sundown: I'm sorry. It's clear that I never belonged outside of Sunset Springs. I shouldn't have left. I have duties back there to attend to. We had a good run. But all good things must come to an end.
  • Firelight: But, Sundown... I love you!
  • Sundown:... I'm sorry. My mind is made up. (She left Sire's Hollow tearing up as ponies mocked her. As she entered the Everfree, a pack of timber wolves appeared and attacked her) NOT NOW!!! (She magically hurled them all away as they crashed comically to pieces)... (She then returned home after sadly dealing with any predators or hostile wildlife trying to get her. Then it flashed into her later sulking and sobbing at what was once her childhood quarters)
  • ???: You want to make up for what happened between you and Sunset?
  • Sundown:... More than anything. It wasn't her fault. I know this by heart.
  • ???: Then I MAY just have a way to go to her.
  • Sundown:... In another dimension?
  • ???: Exactly. I intend to create a portal there. If we're lucky, you can possibly go there and meet her again.
  • Sundown:... You'd do that for me?
  • ???: Of course. I am a celebrated genius, after all, for my name isn't... (He revealed himself as a mad scientist donkey)... Dr. Kookaburra Brights.... Which, it is. (It flashed to a later time)
  • Sundown: KOOKOO, YOU LIED TO ME!
  • Kookoo: Ohho, no. I didn't. You can still apologize to your daughter where this portal leads.
  • Sundown: NO! I discovered who you REALLY are! You're a mad scientist who went into sciences and magic one shouldn't. That prosthetic leg of yours used to be a magic-restraining ankle bracelet-bound leg that you amputated to save your own sorry ASS, pun ENTIRELY intended! You USED me!
  • Kookoo: No I didn't. We BOTH want the same thing: to enter this realm for great good.
  • Sundown: All YOU want from it is for your own army from another dimension. Have you READ what happens to realms who want to take over realms?!
  • Kookoo: THEY'RE JUST MYTHS!!! There's NO proof such stupid things are real.
  • Sundown: I WON'T LET YOU GET THROUGH WITH THIS!!
  • Kookoo: Then you can FORGET meeting your daughter again. You don't DESERVE another chance after this.
  • Sundown:... (She shed a tear)... Neither do YOU deserve ANY redemption! (She magically destroyed the portal)
  • Kookoo: NO!!!!
  • Sundown: It, is OVER! I'll meet my daughter some other day, but right now, I'm turning you in!
  • Kookoo:... No, you won't. AND YOU'LL NEVER SEE YOUR DAUGHTER AGAIN! (He spilled elixirs that unleashed a strain of Killing Joke at an accelerated rate upon the room)
  • Sundown: NO! NONONO!! (She followed the vines and found too late that the leaders were turned into trees)... NO!!!
  • Kookoo: Well well. Looks like their love for nature, did them in. FOR GOOD! (He smacked them away) Their precious tree-hugging ways have become their own undoing. What a cruel, KILLING joke. HAHAHAHAHAHAAA!... Such a shame. They had high hopes for you. Gave you so many chances... And THIS is how you repay them? Disobey their warnings to not even get INVOLVED with me. Give me all of your home's magical secrets, just for another chance at being a mother.... SO AS OF NOW, BECAUSE OF YOU, I AM THE LEADER! You can do me a favor and tell your friends and EVERYPONY who helped me, do this. It'll be SO satisfying. I just want to say one final THANK YOU, for helping me get this far... BEFORE YOU ARE UNWELCOMED HERE FOR YOUR CRIME!! (The Killing Joke chased her away)... I'm done with ponies or any help. I'll rebuild the portal. BETTER this time! SOON, THAT DIMENSION, WILL BE MINE!! (He cackled maniacally as thunder and lightning crackled around him)

Present

  • Sunset:... (She melted her way out with the warmness of her heart)... Mom!
  • Sundown: It's MY fault this all happened! I was responsible for the previous leaders' deaths. They welcomed me when I had no home left to call my own after I left. They along with so many others warned me that he had a lot of suspicion on him, and couldn't be trusted. But I was convinced that, for you, this was the right thing to do. I told him all of our magic secrets. Now we can't do anything about it, because if we stand up to him, he'll bring down the Heliocentrite's power and turn the Everfree Forest onto Sunset Springs! We'll ALL be eaten and killed! AND IT'S ALL MY FAULT!! (She sobbed) SO GO AHEAD AND CALL ME A JERK!! AT LEAST I WAS A JERK BECAUSE I BLAME MYSELF FOR EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED!!! I DID ALL THIS, FOR YOU, SO I HAD SOME ADDITIONAL NEGATIVITY FOR YOU!!!... I felt you were a burden. Another part of my past to put behind me!... So, I'm WAITING!
  • Sunset:... Mom... Don't EVER say that. (She hugged her)... I know you were just doing it for a second chance. It's not your fault Sunset Springs is like this. The only one to blame is Kookoo! HE'S the one who ruined everything. He wants you to feel like this because you did the right thing and took away his chance to go to Human Equestria. So don't EVER doubt yourself, because that's what he WANTS!
  • Sundown: "Actually, I don't think Kookoo is very focused enough for that, I seen that jackass break into laughing fits and-"
  • Sunset: "Well that's to say that beating yourself up would risk giving him a chance to get back where he was going. Being mad at yourself will just help him with his plans."
  • Starlight: Okay, spreading Killing Joke and sending those Griffin Poachers after Belladonna is one thing, but crushing a family member's hopes and using it against her, and us is going TOO far!
  • Sundown: Like I said, he's insane. He does whatever he wants, regardless of the consequences. And again, we can't do anything. He has us on a leash. He has control of Sunset Springs' government AND the Heliocentrite. We'll all be predator food if we cross him.
  • Starlight: Well, luckily for you, we have the meanest, misunderstood, and misfitted heroes in the UUniverses to help deal with him.
  • Sundown:... Okay, I guess? But, like I said, he has power over ALL of us. If even THEY stand up to him, he'll expose Sunset Springs to the Everfree Forest.
  • Sunset: Oh please, they've had their fair share of crisis negotiation. They'll handle him without even breaking a-

Later...

  • SpongeBob: He had ALL the leverage he needed on us.
  • Sunset: (She did this)
SMG4_Sounds_-_ARE_YOU_FREAKING_KIDDING_ME?!

SMG4 Sounds - ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!

  • Spyro: I'm afraid it's true. There's nothing we can do. He has control of the Heliocentrite and the magic protecting Sunset Springs. If we stand up to him, he'll disable it and turn the Everfree Forest onto everyone.
  • Sunset: SHIFU, DIDN'T YOU PERSUADE TWO KUNG FU MASTERS FROM A SIMILAR SCENARIO?!?
  • Shifu: There was nothing even I could do.
  • Starlight: Wouldn't we have TIME to stop him before any predators-
  • Frank: Yeah, about that... He planned ahead. Do you even know what's on the borders of Sunset Springs?
  • Sunset:... Scary trees?
  • Gilda: Nope! Echidnas.
  • Starlight: PFFFT! Those cute little monotremes? What's so scary about-
  • Skipper: Not THAT kind of echidna, Starlight!
  • Kowalski: We are referring to the mythological type.
  • Phil: As in the one me and Hercules handled in MY world... Except a species.
  • ???: Ohhh, that ain't good. (Last Laugh and Tracker appeared)
  • Last Laugh: Echidnas are NO joke. Legends say they were created by Gaia to control life and death, by creating monsters, and destroying them if need be. They're vicious creatures, half-Alicorn and half-snake.
  • Patrick: You mean like the Serpicorns Celestia and Luna used to be?
  • Trixie: Huh? Forgot they were turned into those during Discord's reign. Plus, YOU SAW THEM THROUGH KOOKOO'S LOOKY DEVICES!
  • Last Laugh: THESE beasts make Serpicorns look like threadsnakes.
  • SpongeBob: Okay, you're DEFINTIELY making THAT one up.
  • Kowalski: Actually, SpongeBob, threadsnakes are a real species and not mythologica-
  • SpongeBob: AW COME ON!!
  • Last Laugh: ANYWAY... They produce eggs that can gestate in only a day and create a monster that can grow up in 3 days. MANY of these monsters produced some of those you see in the Everfree today.
  • Tracker: What's worse is that they can mimic the sounds of other animals in order to gain their servility. No beast, no matter how much willpower they got, is immune to its siren call for war. Every beast serves them as their technical creators. They are the lions of the Everfree Forest.
  • Thundera: And there's an entire pack of them surrounding Sunset Springs.
  • Sunset: HOW DID HE EVEN-
  • Boss Wolf: Echidna call. That donkey is NO joke.
  • Donkey: Yeah. I should know. He may be insane, but he's as smart as Heath Ledger Joker. The guy, is CUNNING.
  • Shifu: Therefore, if we do stand up to him, he'll seek all these echidnas on Sunset Springs and their armies of mind-warped monsters along with them. Everyone will be killed, and even we won't be enough to stop it. They and those creatures out there outnumber us 100 to 1.
  • Phil: Kookoo would practically be sending ALL of the Everfree's fauna onto this town. We would NEVER save any of them, especially since the wildlife in this damned forest is SO unpredictable.
  • Icky: "It's always something going on here, is it?"
  • (Deadpool): Well it wouldn't be an episodic big bad if he was an EASY bad guy, now would it?
  • Icky: Oh shut up!
  • (Deadpool): Yeah, you know I'm right.
  • Sundown: Look, you all did your best, that's all that matters. We can still try. Those Windigos are waiting for us to give them something.
  • Sunset: They almost ATE me for being too negatively emotional, and what they DID get from it wasn't enough. They need something for their ENTIRE species to eat.
  • Sundown: And that's no doubt Kookoo. Someone like him deserves that kind of punishment.
  • Icky: "Okay I know you have a major beef with the dude, but that's too extreme, lady."
  • Sundown: Well excuse me! He made me look like a TRAITOR! He tricked me into revealing all of our secrets, and he betrayed me. If it wasn't for the fact my friends were able to forgive me, I would've done Kookoo in long ago. I blamed myself for what happened to this town! So, what did you expect from me? This place hardly accepts visitors anyway.
  • Icky:... STILL, lady!
  • Sundown: Look, what else am I supposed to do? Those Windigos are NOT the patient type, we have to give them SOMETHING! Since friendship has been spreading like wildfire, there's barely any negativity left for them to go around. It's OUR sworn duty to keep them from targeting the REST of Equestria by providing them rich sources of negativity, and since we're in a negative crisis of our own, if we don't give them something soon, they'll start with US! So, Kookoo is pretty much the ONLY solution.
  • Belladonna: I do believe you're missing another.
  • Sundown:... And what would that be, Belladonna?
  • Belladonna: This world may hold the purest beings in the UUniverses, but that does not imply they're completely immune to corruption, and there are STILL bad creatures out there that are NOT ponies. If there was not, the Windigos would have gone extinct LONG ago. Let us not forget, Hibernal and Meteora created them to combine the harshness of cold with the grasp of negative consequences. They were meant to feed off negativity, simply to prevent that negativity from causing rampant chaos. But when their two creators were lost, so was their sentience. They'll feed off ANY negativity they can sniff out, and their senses are increased when it's winter. Perhaps given your history with villainy, you can guide them to other lands rich in negativity.
  • Black Kat: Yeah, sorry, deery, but that doesn't sound pretty moral either. You're suggesting that we CHOOSE to have lands terrorized by the Windigos.
  • Sundown: We've been doing it for ages. What exactly is the problem? If it keeps the Windigos out, what does it matter if others are affected?
  • Black Kat: It matters because... Well, didn't you guys say that you guided the Windigos to Pana? The homeland of the Storm Clan? I mean, who do you think they were gonna blame for it? By having them feed on the negativity of other lands, that instead just breeds more negativity, and soon villainy, making them more targets for the Windigos on a yearly basis.
  • Sundown: If it means they get food and WE stay out of harm's way, then it must be done.
  • Black Kat: But at what cost?! How is THIS honoring the philosophy of friendship?
  • Sundown: It's not ABOUT friendship, it's about doing what's best for Equestria. If we don't do this, the Windigos will target us again. We'd be looking at a THIRD Windigo Ice Age here.
  • Gilda: See, this is why other races on this world have little appreciation for you ponies.
  • Sundown: Well, do you idiots have any BETTER solution to this problem?
  • Belladonna: Sundown, cease this rude behavior at once. That will not help you. There are INDEED solutions to this besides putting other lands in harm's way.
  • Sundown: Yeah, I genuinely doubt that. Those Windigos HAVE to get their food SOMEWHERE, and it CAN'T be us.
  • Belladonna: You must simply have a charity drive on other lands so that they'll give negativity WILLINGLY.
  • Sundown:... Think about what you just said, BD. What you just said is the Old Ponish equivalent of saying "Hey, we just take any bad person from our land and sacrifice them to a bunch of winter spirits who feed off negativity, because it's either them or us." Does that sound more moral than OUR methods?
  • Belladonna: Think about what YOU said, Sundown. Windigos do not consume creatures unless they are exerting too much negativity, and that alone is spectacularly rare.
  • Sundown: Well, what happened with me and Sunset in my room would suggest otherwise.
  • Belladonna: That was simply ONE rare occurrence. Windigos primarily feed on negativity. What negative consequence is there to that besides the falling temperatures?
  • Sundown: A-... N... Nothing.
  • Belladonna: So, what harm is there?
  • Sundown:... You do realize that giving them sacrifices like that sounds PRETTY nasty when you say it out loud, AND giving a negative person to a Windigo will risk them freezing to death. Bring frozen is NOT the same as putting them in suspended animation. The crystals inside the ice pierce you like needles, and they can KILL you. Plus, no food or sustenance, not to mention the cold temperatures. Yeah, no way ANYONE'S gonna survive that.
  • Belladonna: Windigo ice is magic in nature. Therefore they are preserving them like you would preserve food in a refrigerator. They are not truly going to be killed. Windigos are not malevolent in nature. They have gone dark, true, but not THAT dark. They are merely animals like the others in the Everfree. They are simply looking for food. They just have ways of hunting that make them look malevolent. Like sharks, attacks from Windigos are not because they are monsters. Their powers are just not easy for even them to control, and it affects others.
  • Kaa: So, that means that giving sacrifices in THIS case is not immoral. If anything, it could be used for rehabilitation.
  • Belladonna: NOT rehabilitation. Taking negativity from an individual as a whole would be like taking away a part of your life. Rehabilitation must not be imposed, or those who impose it are no better than the one they are imposing the rehabilitation on. The option to change must only be done on the individual alone, and the Windigos know this. They may not be sentient, but they still have much of their ways left inside of them as instinct. It is like any other predator being cautious when in the presence of a sentient being's territory. One wrong move could make a serious change that could be just as harmful as climate change. It could potentially hamper their ability to hunt.
  • Icky: "Ya know, I just realize this whole thing of Windigos not being sentient kinda contradicts The Bester Gift Ever in where we met a Sentient Windigo and-"
  • Belladonna: "That was simply one of the lucky ones who avoided being lost to instinct. It's greatly rare that a Windigo is able to retain or revive a semblance of ancient Windigo sentience."
  • Icky: "Right, just thought I address continuity conflict here."
  • Archimedes: Are we seriously going into this ethical crap again? Isn't that what got magic destroyed in the first place?
  • Belladonna: Point being, that the Windigos will not accept a sacrifice if it is being forced on the victim. Instead, it will sense the negativity in those who are forcing it, and target their homes instead.
  • Archimedes:... Okay, I suppose that makes sense.
  • Belladonna: Therefore, if you wish to continue honoring this deal with the Windigos, then you must expand to other lands. And you must do it soon because with Kookoo causing harm to ponies here, then the Windigos will not hesitate to target everypony here if it means they have food for themselves and their Windigo comrades back home.
  • Donkey: This is just peachy. Echidnas on the borders, Windigos in need of a negativity debt, a crazy donkey scientist who's got this town by the balls, spreading killer joke vines, and hunting a deer with griffin poachers, WE ARE DOOMED!!
  • Shrek: Shut it, Donkey! You're not really helping matters!
  • Icky: Did you guys seriously just cut and paste one of your lines from your sequel game?
  • Shrek: "That's kinda always been a thing with SAF, to be fair."
  • Icky: I-- ... Okay, point taken. Though it's kinda a thing with all adventure series, not just this one-
  • Sunset: CAN WE FOCUS PLEASE?! (Patrick started to repeatedly staring at Sunset)...... Patrick, what are you doing?!
  • Patrick: "(As his Point of View keeps focusing on Sunset) Focusing."
  • Sunset:... (Sighs) Let me rephrase this in a way that's impossible for even YOU to misunderstand... Focus, ON, SAVING, THIS, TOWN!
  • Patrick:... (He did the same thing to the entire town)... Nice place you got here.
  • Sunset: Oy! Ignore him. We better just get moving.
  • Savio: Indeed. After we just confronted that mad donkey's little shenanigans with the flower, we would want to move quickly.
  • Hans: Ja. He'll be expecting us to find a way around his leverage.
  • Skipper: "My god, he's like Blowhole but as a JACKASS?!"
  • Starlight: "Okay, whoa, I know Kookoo Brain's a bad guy, but there's no need to bring that slang into this!"
  • Donkey: I'm with Skipper on this one. Considering all that happened here, Kookoo's a jackass' jackass, so don't worry about the word being offensive to me of being used to describe Kookoo Boy.
  • Shrek: Lucky you hardly seem offended by speciesist comments yourself.
  • Sunset: Look, you guys do your mission, and we'll do ours. Let's not forget that we're here for a friendship mission and YOU guys are here to bring down ANOTHER bad guy.
  • Merlin: Yes, and it's only a matter of time before both our missions intertwine. It practically already has.
  • Starlight: Well, we prefer to be the forgiving type.
  • Sundown: Hmmph. If you ask me, not that I want to be a bad mother, but you deserved worse.
  • Sunset: Look, Mom, we GOTTA do this. You said those Windigos are NOT patient, so we NEED to find a way to give them what they want so they won't target the rest of Equestria.
  • Skipper: Well then DO IT! If they ain't gonna wait, then DON'T KEEP THEM WAITING!
  • Sunset/Starlight: NOT HELPING!
  • Sundown: Can you guys just do your thing already?
  • Skipper: WE SHALL! (The Lodgers left)
  • Sunset:... Heh. Guess we DO have a lot in common, huh?
  • Sundown: Can you NOT?! I must remind you that all THIS was because I wanted to start over with you. I'm not naming any names here, but this is your fault as much as it is mine.
  • Sunset: Too bad, because it feels like you ARE naming names. Me and Starlight did what we did because we felt so insecure after being raised by overbearing parents like you and Dad. HE humilated me when I met him, and so did you. I am NOT in the mood to start arguments like this AGAIN! Now let's go talk to those Windigoes, SOMEHOW, and convince them to give us more time, or at least something that WILL give us more time. STARTING NOW! (She stormed into the Windigos staying residence)
  • Sundown:... (Gulps) Sunset, be careful. Windigos are very negative creatures. Comes from their diet, and again, they can't understand Ponish.
  • Starlight: And you haven't exactly been able to learn how to communicate to a Windigo. You're always in Human Equestria, and I'm too busy with what I got. We used to think Windigos were a myth, too.
  • Sunset: Let me wing it, okay?! (She went in as the Windigos saw her)... (Gulps) Yeesh, their stares LITERALLY send chills up my spine.... (Deep breath)... ("Think, Sunset. How do you speak to them?... Wait... If they feed on negativity, and they've become negative creatures from it... Then there's only one way to speak to them: in negativity.")... (She screamed in anger as the Windigos did the same in their own language)
  • Sundown:... She's dead. Oh, Gaia have mercy. I can't watch.
  • Starlight: "Me neither!"
  • Suddenly, the Windigos talked amongst themselves and agreed with Sunset, who shorted in positivity.
  • Icky: "...... Wow, that, ended better then expected."
  • Sundown: I... Well... Um... Ahem. I won't look this gift horse in the mouth. I take it they're going to give us time?
  • Sunset: Well, I don't speak Windigo, but I'm assuming yes. I'm not gonna face them to figure it out, they give me the creeps.
  • Sundown: That's kind of the point, but let us not waste this opportunity.
  • Sandy: Then I guess we're back on schedule.
  • Patrick: We don't exactly know that- (The Windigos went back into the sky)...... They could do anything.......... Okay, yeah, they're giving us time.
  • Spyro: Then we must move, now.
  • Donkey: Yeah, that ass gives a bad name to other asses, both figuratively and literally. He's going DOWN!
  • Tigress: We just have to play it carefully. One wrong move and Sunset Springs is history.
  • Patrick: Tigress, we're the heroes of the series. What could happen that would suggest otherwise?
  • Boss Wolf: DUDE!!!
  • Patrick: Hey, I tempted fate in a way that goes against the series. Even KARMA FAIRIES aren't gonna just let us lose.
  • Boss Wolf: No, but Chaos would.
  • Chaos: Eh, I don't care for this one in particular, you guys have already done the failure part with the echidnas and the bribery part.
  • Patrick: Soooo, are we gonna do this or what?
  • Sparx: Yes, PLEASE, for the love of Gods, get us to the next chapter-

Chapter 4: Enter Dr. Kookoo Brain

Kookoo Brain's Room

  • (Sparx): (While being viewed through a view portal) -So we can get this flashback episode over with.
  • (Spyro): Sparx, calm down.
  • (Sparx): Calm down? You saw his looky portals, he might be watching us right now.
  • (Chaos): Meh, he's probably one of those 'I want my enemies to squirm' type of villains.
  • (Discord): Oh, he's definitely looking, and he's too insane to just cheat the plot and doom the town right now.
  • (Sunset): DISCORD?!? WHEN DID YOU-... Oh, forgot you and Kat were always with us.
  • (Discord): Pheh. (The view portal closed)
  • A Silhouette was seen, as a gang of Griffin Poachers was seen as well....
  • ???: "..... Poacha, how do you feel about adding aliens to the hunting list? (Kooky yet sinister laughter)"
  • Poacha (The female griffin poacher leader): Oh, let me AT them! I could use a challenge. Besides, they owe me big for making a fool out of me and my partners.
  • ???: Ohohoho, trust me. I already have them on a leash. They aren't going anywhere, so you'll have em right where you- (They were already gone)... Ambition. I like that. Well, soon, it'll be worthwhile for everycreature once I get into that human dimension. (He sang this)
No_More_Mr._Nice_Guy

No More Mr. Nice Guy

  • (Deadpool): "...... Wow. That's, the oldest song on the wiki that we've recycled for usage."

French Narrator: Meanwhile, with the Lodgers...

  • (Deadpool): "This is also the shortest we introduced the bad guy. Kinda like what happened when Count Vladimir was introduced in that French Gary episode-"
  • Lord Shen: YOU DO NOT GET TO REFERENCE THAT CONTROVERSIAL SHIT, NOW SHUT UP!
  • (Deadpool): "Oh come on, the sex trade stuff and the worse temperament you had in the entire series behind the Dark Shen brouhaha wasn't THAT bad, right?"
  • Lord Shen: "(Brings out cannon) WELL SOME OF US ARE BOTHERED BY THAT, SO SILENCE?! (Fires cannon at camera as an exploudsion occurs)"
  • (Deadpool): "DAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA?! FOURTH WALL, WHY HAVE YOU BETRAYED ME!?"
  • Sunset: Thank you, Shen.
  • Lord Shen: "Pleasure's all mine, Sunset. Deadpool has a habit of interrupting episodes like that. We're just glad the security measures have done well to keep from controlling the plot whenever he feels inconvenienced by a certain element in the narrative."
  • Sunset: Yeah, that sounds annoying.
  • (Human Pinkie): Uh, who is this 'Deadpool' guy? Sounds fun.
  • (Sunset): Oh, trust me, he's the ANNOYING kind of fun.
  • SpongeBob: Look, can we PLEASE focus on the task? FOR ONCE?!?
  • Lord Shen: I was JUST going to say that.
  • SpongeBob: Well you're the general. How do we do it?
  • Lord Shen: Well, this guy wants to open that portal to Human Equestria, yes? Well, perhaps-
  • Creeper: WE DUPE HIM BY SENDING HIM TO THE BLENDER DIMENSION FROM RICK AND MORTY?!
  • Lord Shen: NO! I MEANT SOMETHING MORE HUMANE, MY LONGS!!! WHAT IS UP WITH YOU QUICKLY SUGGESTING THAT?!?
  • Creeper: That literal and figurative ass made MORE asses out of us. But what about... A more violent version of Human Equestria?
  • Sparx: And risk him having a more HARDCORE army? Are you f*****g stupid?!
  • Creeper:... Exile to a G3-Like Human Equestria?
  • Sparx:... Okay, good pitch.
  • Lord Shen: Ugh, he'll likely be expecting such a cheap trick! Besides, that seems a little too much even if it's not the Blender Dimension!
  • Sparx: Pfft, we're using ablest language in what was SUPPOSED to be a kid's show... That further encourages copyright infringement, so-
  • Lord Shen: Stop! Just stop! We're NOT exiling him to another dimension! A guy like him seems too smart to stay there anyway.
  • Sandy: Eh, he's got a point there. He is trying to commit to dimensional travel to begin with, so there ain't no stranding him.
  • Lord Shen: Now, as I was saying before I was so RUDELY interrupted... Perhaps we give him what we think he wants? And before anyone says that's what Creeper suggested, then allow me to give context. If we take precautions beforehand, we may just ensure that he is not allowed entry even with that portal. So, he believes we have us on a leash, but a leash that's been made from con artists... When that thing on his leash is a feral hyena.
  • Shenzi: Oho, that'd feel speciesist if it wasn't true. But it was at least a fine pitch. No guarantee the son of an ass will fall for it. He was smart enough to put us on that leash to begin with.
  • Lord Shen: Let's simply make it up as we go.
  • Icky: "Which is admittedly what we do best in this series."
  • Patrick: I thought getting off track was what we do best.
  • Lord Shen:... (Sighs) This is going to be a PAINFUL journey.
  • Patrick: "No, this is a painful journey! (Punches Squidward down a hill)!"
  • Squidward: "(Bounces across the hill, as he bounces across jagged rocks, a strangely placed cactus patch, giant cheese graters, fields of giant Venus flytraps, and finally into a grove of Rape Trees!) DAH D'OH D'OW OW, OW OW OW OW OW DAH D'OH D'OW OW, OW OW OW OW OW DAH D'OH D'OW OW, OW OW OW OW OW- (LAST THING) YYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW?!"
  • Lord Shen: "...... Why, did you just punched Squidward into ALL OF THAT?!"
  • Patrick: "To prove what a painful journey is."
  • Squidward: "(Cartoonishly came back super-angry) AND NOW IT'S YOUR TURN?! (Pushes Patrick down the same hill as he goes through the same things and screams)!"
  • Sunset and Starlight moaned.....
  • Squidward: YEAH! NEXT TIME, DON'T TAKE THINGS TOO LITERALLY!!... Patrick?......
  • Patrick: (Eventually peeks up from the hill) Whoever's the owner of a sun-themed horse carriage, your reins are untied. (He walks back as his back is covered with rocks and cacti, his arms are grated to the point of being twigs, two smaller Venus flytraps are biting his butt, and a rape tree branch is stuck up his butt)
  • Sunset: "...... Wait, a carriage? (The heroes carefully tread down the hill to investigate)"
  • The group arrived and found such a carriage.
  • Sunset: "..... I'd, think I'd remember coming here with a carriage."
  • Icky: "Ya don't suppose that's your mom's, right?"
  • Sunset: I sure hope not.
  • SpongeBob: Well then by all means let's see whose it is. (They entered and found who it belonged to)... It's Kookoo Brains' carriage.
  • Po: He came here by carriage?
  • Donkey: He's a donkey. Did you think he'd come here by car, because after Kevin's stunts here, I DOUBT Equestria's gonna be into modern technology.
  • Po: Well he DOES have a prosthetic leg.
  • Monkey: So, why come here, anyway? This would be the last place anyone in Equestria would like to visit.
  • Sunset: I think this journal can answer that. Says here that he was once a scientist from a far away land. Then... He went too far by going into sciences and magics one shouldn't such as mind-controlling ponies or other creatures into accepting the magic of friendship, and also magic-harvesters. He was called out for violating ethical protocols and fired. So he forced the issue by trying this mind-control potion on dragon lands, the one race that dislikes the magic of friendship, and thus reverse their perspective on it, all in the name of the Princesses. This earned him a place in house arrest where he was forced to wear a magic ankle bracelet so he couldn't do anymore scientific endeavors.... His words in here are pretty vulgar and he called everyone who doubted him 'the reason why the magic of friendship is underappreciated since they are too afraid and too morally bound'. So he... My CELESTIA!! He CUT OFF HIS OWN MONITORED LEG AND TRIED TO FIND A VERY ISOLATED PLACE?!
  • Starlight: Well, that explains the prosthetic leg.
  • Gilda: So this guy's a wanted criminal in Equestria, huh? Must have a huge reward on his head... And given the p***y nature of Equestria, the reward requires that head still be attached to his body.
  • Trixie: Gilda, I know you're a griffin, but for Celestia's sake!
  • Kowalski: This honestly doesn't give us much to take him down. All it does is give us his backstory, which Sundown already explained to us, seriously, Sunset, why did you act like you just knew that?
  • Sunset: It's just still shocking he had to do so to avoid house arrest.
  • Gilda: And he must've discarded this carriage almost recently. Yeah, it seems like it's been a couple of years, but he must've abandoned it to keep anypony from learning about him. And given the old hoofprints around here, I guess it didn't work, because this is how Sundown figured it out.
  • Icky: "Well the nut clearly didn't do that great of a job hiding his ass from people. Some genius. Seriously, what here makes even FINDING this carriage in plain sight so hard-" (A massive amount of Killing Joke arrived and surrounded them in a giant vine cage)... Of course. Took it until we asked the question it answered to show up! Pheh. Slow as molasses. Nono. As a snail.
  • Tigress: WE NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE!
  • Black Kat: Ahehem! (She took out some phantasmal flowers and used them to chase away the Killing Joke)...
  • Boss Wolf:... Guess that's that-
  • Lord Shen: Nonononono! That was too easy. ANYONE could have phantasmal flowers around. It's NEVER too easy for nothing. We have to leave with caution, AND IF ANYONE THINKS TO IGNORE ME AND TRIGGER KARMA, I SWEAR TO YINGLONG-
  • Patrick: Too bad, we gotta figure it out and deal with it, so... (He stepped and out came a large echidna. It was half-alicorn and half-snake, with a pony's tail on the tip, a mane full of flaring snake-like tendrils, large feathery hippogriff wings, monstrous talons for arms, four fangs on the inside of its mouth, and roared loudly)
  • Lord Shen: (Sighs) Why do I EVEN bother?!
  • Merlin: Why are we even worried? We HAVE magic! (He cast a spell on it, but it surprisingly had its own magic that protected it)... Why does magic have to be useless in these kind of scenarios?!
  • Gilda: They're SUPPOSED to be Alicorn creations, that's KINDA the point! Their magic is rumored to be equal to an Alicorn's.
  • Trixie: Then let's get Twilight, or any other Alicorn for that matter!
  • Sunset: We can't! The map said Twilight and others are forbidden to meddle in this, remember?!
  • Trixie: OH FOR CELESTIA'S SAKE, WHO CARES?! WE'RE SAVING THE WORLD, NOT PARTICIPATING IN A FRIENDSHIP MISSION- (The echidna attacked them as it laid eggs that hatched many rapidly-maturing monsters that attacked them as well)
  • Shrek: Oh, give me a break. (He hurled rocks at the monsters killing them in comical ways)... Is that all this she-beast's got? (The echidna brooded an army of monsters that towered and outnumbered them)... I just HAD to ask that, didn't I?
  • Patrick:... RUUUUUUUUUN!! (They did that as they had them trapped in a cave)
  • Shenzi: S***! DEAD END!!!
  • Private: WHAT'LL WE DO?!?
  • Susan:... Insectasaurus? (He grew as the monsters came directly inside only for them to be wasted after Patrick said this)
Spongebob_Squarepants_-_Hello_&_Goodbye

Spongebob Squarepants - Hello & Goodbye

  • Skipper: Good work!
  • Icky: "This is diffidently gonna be one of the crazier missions." (Suddenly the echidna was hears screeching as it gave birth to a monster just as big as Insectasaurus, if not bigger)
  • Po:... AW COME ON! NOT FAIR!! (It and Insectasaurus charged)

Later...

  • Insectasaurus: (He was down and beaten, and once again shrunk to traveling size)... Reeehhhhrk.
  • Sundown: She must've taken one hell of a beating.
  • Susan: He.
  • Sundown: That thing is a GUY?! How can ANYCREATURE tell?
  • Last Laugh: Ohho, yes. That's the true power of an echidna.
  • Icky: "Oh thanks for suddenly showing up even when I don't think we'd established you're even in the story anymore."
  • Last Laugh:.... Ignoring that. The creatures they give birth to are meant to adapt and protect their mother, and even the family. They produce monsters asexually, and when needing to reproduce, they do it sexually. And the worst part?
  • Baloo: There's a WORSE PART?!?
  • Last Laugh: If there's enough echidnas in one area, it attracts the attention of their mate.
  • Baloo: MATE?!?
  • Discord:... The legendary Typhon. All echidnas are hermaphorditic, and yet they're all female. Yet TYPHON is the ONLY male echidna. It's like anglerfish. The big ones with lures are females, but the males are smaller and reproduce by... Trust me, you don't wanna know.
  • Kowalski: By fusing with the female and sharing their own fertilized seed early for the female when it needs to reproduce. (Many of the Lodgers were grossed out by that) What, none of you knew that?
  • Sandy: I did, and it still grosses me out. So, LL, you're saying that this Typhon, is the leader of all echidnas, and like a queen ant and her drones, is the way this species reproduces?
  • Last Laugh: Well, the hermaphrodite nature of the females is how the genetics diversify, but yes. Echidnas are very nasty creations when they reproduce and make monsters, but Gaia had to do it somehow. The monsters they spawn is not just their defense mechanism, it forms a sort-of, biological fauna factory. One that created MANY of the fauna you see in the Everfree eons ago, and still does to this very day. The monsters they produce are so unpredictable, and they give birth to monsters made to adapt to predators or anything that threatens them or the Typhon.
  • Trixie: And... Where, IS the Typhon?
  • Last Laugh: Nopony knows. The Typhon had not been seen for eons. Not since Gaia herself vanished.
  • Sunset: Well considering the Everfree Forest in Human Equestria, I'd say she's still around somewhere. How else would she have that story in-
  • Starlight: I thought Timber made it up in that dimension.
  • Sunset: Well, I think PART of it was true, I don't know!
  • Icky: "Wait, are we talking about Normal Equestria's Gaia Evrefree or the one from Human Equestria, cause this is starting to sound confusing-"
  • Sunset: I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE ONE IN HUMAN EQUESTRIA?! GOOD GRIEF, DIMENSIONAL TRAVEL MAKES EVERYTHING CONFUSING?! Point is... Wait, that's not the real point. The REAL point is, as long as those echidnas out there AND their leader are around, we're never going to be safe.
  • Patrick: Well, what are the odds that Kookoo Brain will have a TYPHON Call?
  • Lord Shen: STAR ONE!! KARMA!!
  • Patrick: Oh, come on!
  • Lord Shen: "I'M SERIOUS?!"
  • Sparx: I kinda have to be with Patrick on this one, Shenny boy. Seriously, do you REALLY think he'd POSSIBLY create a way to summon something like that? It's VERY unlikely. And even if he did, Typhon would NEVER obey him. If anything, all summoning him would do is ruin his plans in an instant when Typhon discovers what he's been using his kin for. Besides, karma fairies wouldn't DARE create that from the ether, because that would undermine the ENTIRE PLOT!
  • Lord Shen:...
  • Boss Wolf:..... Wow, you ended up saying while defending Patrick.......
  • Squidward: Careful. Ya don't want to empower that pink idiot. It always ends in PAIN!
  • Lord Shen: THAT'S IT! We can summon Typhon so that IT can sort this out! If that creature discovers what Koo... Not going to say it... What HE is using it's kin for, then he'll be mad and-...... And downright destroy everything to find him, and he'll just let it happen before fleeing....
  • Boss Wolf: Yeah Squidward, you made a good point here.
  • Shifu: No, we're on the right track! We JUST have to do it in a way that keeps Sunset Springs out of danger.
  • Black Kat: So you want to find these creatures' head honcho so he can sort this out? I've heard Typhon is not as dumb as he looks.
  • Belladonna: It's true. Typhon, as the very first echidna sired, has truly been at this far longer than any other. It learned well for it's eon-old age. It will defend its wildlife kingdom with all in its capability. So, it shall not even be willing to aid in this.
  • Tigress: It will if it realizes that it's kin is being used.
  • Belladonna:... True. But... I'm fairly certain it will not speak modern Ponish, nor even Old Ponish.
  • Squidward: "Nor English at all, I bet."
  • Belladonna: That goes without saying. Like the Windigos, it can only speak its own tongue.
  • Phil: Heh, well luckily for you, as one who trained a true hero that had a run in with ANOTHER Echidna, I MIGHT be able to help.
  • Belladonna: As much as I can see a satyr like you achieving such a feat, Echidnas from one world are no same to another on yet another world.
  • Phil:... I don't- Oh, now I get it. Sorry, being with the Lodgers made me slightly numb to fancy talk.
  • Pain: You're LITERALLY played by Danny DeVito, how would you even KNOW fancy talk to begin with?
  • Phil: My FULL name is Philoctetes, and yet unlike the ACTUAL Greek figure, I'm MORE based on my rival Chiron! Poetic license can be a BITCH sometimes.
  • Panic: "Preach. We ended up with a Hades who behaves like a shady cars salesmen with a bad temper."
  • Phil: My point exactly. It ain't MY fault I sound like Mickey from the Rocky movies. But, hey, differences don't matter.
  • Panic: I'd say they do. The Typhon of OUR world is so monstrous it frightens even Zeus and Hercules, something even HADES couldn't do. I'd say you'd have trouble doing so for THIS Typhon.
  • Belladonna: There's something else.
  • Phil: Oh now what?
  • Belladonna: Well, my ages of safeguarding the Everfree Forest have allowed me to know the true whereabouts and nature of Typhon. The Typhon you're looking for, is not the true Typhon.
  • Kaa: Meaning?
  • Belladonna: The TRUE Typhon is no longer in the Everfree Forest. The TRUE Typhon is in Tartarus, wherein he resides imprisoned within the Styx Ocean. His presence here would have brought more danger to the Everfree Forest. So much that none would dare live here. Not even Sunset Springs. It has the ability to control all fauna in Equestria, and as such, it could slay any intruders.
  • Skipper: Well, if he was created by Gaia so he and the echidnas would produce the fauna of the world, why is he imprisoned?
  • Belladonna: Legend said that it went rogue. As a creature born to birth monsters, it could control and bend them to its will. So it did so against Gaia and even Princess Environa following the first sentient creatures' birth, fearing the damage they would do. Thus Death Coffin had to imprison it in the Styx Ocean, where it still dwells today.
  • Lord Shen:... Once again, Squidward made a good point to not empower anything based on what Patick said.
  • Icky: Oh come on, can we all make up our damn minds?!
  • Last Laugh: What Belladonna was TRYING to say is that the echidna you SHOULD be looking for is still here. It's a tamed and yet untamed avatar of Typhon meant to do the ORIGINAL Typhon's job. Do you think echidnas would STILL be here if there was no male to lead em? THIS Typhon is hidden in the Everfree, and it ain't as powerful as the first, for duh reasons. So, yeah, try not to delve into your Old Ponish era ways next time, eh, old-timer?
  • Belladonna: May I ask that you respect the ELDEST of the elders here?
  • Last Laugh: But it ain't gonna be easy. I seen the beast with my own eyes.
  • Icky: Okay, you're DEFINITELY old, because you said that nobody's seen it in eons.
  • Last Laugh: Well, sorry, got used to ponies not believing me whenever I said such 'hogwash'. I KNOW where the beast is. But be warned. When it comes to Typhon, NOTHING is predictable.
  • Chaos: Well leave it to ME then. I KNOW unpredictable, so I can help these guys go in and handle it. All we must do is fake giving up to Kookoo Brain, when in truth we'll be looking for Typhon the Unknownth, and tattling on him. I can already SEE the look on his face when he sees we played him for a fool.
  • Pang Bing: And you're sure he won't know with his own view portals?
  • Chaos: Nah, the Windigos are already growing impatient. Looky-loo. (They saw the storm above them)... Since Kooky Brain's looky portal is based on technology and not magic, that storm will be interfering with the signal.

Kookoo Brain's Quarters

  • Kookoo Brain: (That was seen happening) URGH! I wish I had blasted magic! If only I had been able to experiment on making a Unicorn Donkey before people began to turn on my genius! (He tried to fix the transmission)

Outside

  • Chaos: So our plan is confidential. All we have to do is fake giving up. He'll be off his guard and WE'LL be in the clear.
  • Icky: "But I feel like we should still look out for those Griffin Poachers this episode almost forgot about. Poacha and those others might cover Kookoo's ass for him, pun not intended.... Entirely."
  • Gilda: Ohho, the episode didn't almost forget about them. THEY did... Wait, that doesn't make any sense. Bottom line, we'll kick their asses, pun ENTIRELY intended.... Wait, that doesn't make any sense either.
  • Icky: Gilda, babe, just leave the one-liners to me, huh?
  • Gilda: (Sighs)
  • SpongeBob: Well, are we gonna do this, or stand here like a bunch of weirdos?
  • Po: We ARE a bunch of weirdos, but I'm going for the former. So let's DO something like a bunch of weirdos!
  • Mantis: "..... That meant, to sound better in your head, right?"
  • Po: Yeah.
  • Tigress: Let's just-

Mail Time With Deadpool

  • Deadpool: Hey, I'm Deadpool, here to read some of today's viewer mail while the Lodgers are Lodgy-gagging. (Chuckles) Get it? Anyway, here's a letter from Bill, age 7. "Dear Deadpool, are you sure there's time in the show to do this?" Good question, Bill. There's plenty of time before things get really crazy. And hopefully we'll have more letters to read before the Lodgers actually come up with a plan to beat Kookoo Brain. Real original name, I know. Now let's move on to a letter from-- (CRASH!) Hey, what was that?
  • Lord Shen: "WIL-SOOOOOOOOOON?! YOUR CAMEO PRIVILEGES HAVE REACHED THEIR LIMIT FOR THIS EPISODE!! CEASE THIS ALREADY!!"
  • Deadpool: "Why don't ya make me-...... Did I just say that to the psycho peacock with the blade mastery and firework cannons? Well, in any case, BUH-BYE!"

Back with the heroes...

  • Lord Shen: "Tch, imbecile was lucky X was the one to write in the next scene."
  • Icky: "So can we NOW get this plot back on track?"
  • Lord Shen: YES! So let's go fake defeat and find the damn Typhon before something ELSE happens!

Later...

  • Po: WE SURRENDER!!!
  • Kookoo:... Wow. Just like that?... What kind of idiot do you take me for?
  • Gloria: No, we mean it. You got us. There's nothing we can do. Sunset Springs is all yours.
  • Kookoo:... You think I don't know who you are? You're the Shell Lodge Squad! The heroes who keep meddling in Equestrian affairs if it concerns yours.... But mostly if it doesn't. I lost my awareness of what made sense there. But, yeah, there's NO way I'm falling for it. The moment I turn my back on you, who knows what you'll be back with?
  • Alex: Look, you have our word that-
  • Frostbite: Let's not go there! PLEASE! He's a villain, he doesn't deserve our word.
  • Kookoo: No, he's right. You have your word that you will not come back?
  • SpongeBob:... Any one of us who hasn't had a quote for a LONG time want to speak up?
  • Tigre: Allow me, then.
  • Hornereen: You mean US!
  • Saa: Yeah, because, you know, we are you!
  • Tigre: (Through teeth) Shut up! (Openly) We don't have to promise ANYTHING to you! We will leave and NEVER come back! THAT is a pro- (Saa slapper her) OW! Okay, SORRY, realized my error!
  • Uncle Waldo: What they mean to say is that we would rather have someone else deal with you. This is clearly not our fight.
  • Kookoo: You're a LITERAL army of cartoon characters who shouldn't logically fit in one room. How is THIS, NOT your fight? Also, aren't you the one that's supposed to be drunk?
  • Uncle Waldo: Hey, just because I was drunk my ENTIRE time in The Aristocats, DOESN'T mean I'm PERMANENTLY drunk. Just ask my nieces Abigail and Amelia!
  • Kookoo:... Why is he even with you guys, anyway? Comic relief? Because if it is, you sure took massive pity on him.
  • Tigress: AHEM! Our POINT BEING, that we know when to call it quits and hand the reigns to some other heroes. Twilight and her friends for example. They may not be allowed near the friendship mission, but they ARE allowed to stop YOU!
  • Benny: Yeah, I mean, they got out of tighter scraps than this. They could kick your literal and figurative ass without even breaking a sweat.
  • Kookoo: "..... Ya know that's not much of a great sale if you say you're gonna make me someone else's problem."
  • Icky: "(Quietly) Okay, good to know he's only crazy, not stupid."
  • Lefou: (Quietly) Then what do we say?! He's clearly not buying this at ALL!
  • Kookoo: Uh, seeing as you are huddling, that confirms you're all bluffing. If you're GOING to surrender, you have to do it IN my supervision. I KNOW you're going to come back soon with some amazing deus ex machina.
  • Marty: Dang! Guys, he's clearly too smart for us. We should DEFINITELY do what he says.
  • Kookoo: I ALSO know sarcasm when I hear it.
  • Sparx: "And I bet with ears like that, you can hear a lot."
  • Spyro: "Sparx!"
  • Kookoo: It's very simple. Just give up my way, or don't give up at all and die along with the rest of the Springs! It's your choice.
  • Spyro:... (Sighs) Fine! We do it your way.
  • Kookoo: See? All this mess could be avoided easily. You KNOW you can't take me if it means this whole place dies. Come on in.
  • Cynder:... Well... I suppose we have no choice.
  • Sparx: Yeah, no doi! (Cynder looked angrily at him)... Sorry, forgot who I was talking to.
  • Cynder: C'mon!

Dungeon

  • Kookoo: (They were placed inside a giant cell)... It's SO convenient that there was a magical dungeon cell down here. Heh. Guess the founders of this quaint town expected a LOT from this wild forest. Now here's the deal, ladies and actual ladies, heheHAHAH, you will all stay here where I can see you until I get my job done. After that, you're free to go. Not that you can stop me afterward.
  • Creeper: And exactly WHO are you going to leave guarding us? Those poacher griffins you hired to kill Belladonna? I'm sure THEY can't even come CLOSE to qualifying as bloody guards.
  • Kookoo: Ohho, no. They already have their claws full.... Trust me. Instead, I'll watch it myself... From my lab. (He brought out a portable view portal)
  • Chaos:... Must I remind you that those things won't work? The Windigos are stirring up a literal storm out there with their impatience. They NEED food, and they're not going to wait forever. Since your gadgets are purely technology, the signal is lackluster, especially in Windigo-based weather.
  • Kookoo: Oh, that's only for outside transmission. The view portal I've been using is useless now, for sure, but the view portal HERE?! Without any outside interference, I'll have you in my sight the entire time. HAHAHAHAHAAA!! I LOVE being a genius.
  • Kowalski: Ugh, it's times like this where I wish I was as smart as you, minus the evil ambition.
  • Susan: If you think you'll get away with this-
  • Kookoo: Save the cliche arguments and lines, toots. I've got a portal to build. Toodaloo! (He left and as soon as he got out of sight, he got on a wrist communicator) Alright, Poacha, you remember the plan? As soon as they escape, you follow them to where they're going, and when you get the chance, kill them!
  • (Poacha): Got it, but since it's the Lodgers, doing so is going to require a LOT of tolerance to comical situations, and my compatriots are NOT meant for that.
  • Kookoo: Look, those Lodgers are not going to stay in that cell forever, so FIGURE IT OUT!!!
  • (Poacha): "Okay okay, sheesh, no need to get shouty!"
  • Kookoo Brain left.
  • Pang Bing: "..... This is the most indigifived thing I had agreed to do."
  • Icky: "Hey if it helps, it could've been ALOT worse."
  • Cynder: Well, Kookoo was right about this magic cell. The people of Sunset Springs were using it for SOMETHING. I can't seem to use my avatar form to break us all out.
  • Sparx: Pheh, you hardly use it nowadays anyway. Name ONE time recently you've used it.
  • Cynder:...
  • Sparx: Exactly. Nowadays, we only remember it for being used in breaking out of dungeon cells, AND for you constantly using it because the Queen of Hearts AND the Flying Dutchman kept mocking you, resulting in that fat tyrant whore's first demise, AND your title as new queen of Wonderland, which honestly, we keep forgetting about.
  • (Human Applejack): Wait, what? That actually happened?
  • (Sunset): In their earliest days, yes. They killed the Queen of Hearts, and the Wonderlandian members of the Lodge joined after they almost hung the ENTIRE Lodge for it, not realizing until the White Rabbit intervened that she was corrupted by the Villain League. So, they kinda crowned her as their new Queen.
  • (Sci-Twi): Then why hasn't she done that duty?
  • (Sunset): Boy is THAT one of the million-dollar questions?
  • Mr. Dodo: We thought you always knew since looking at US in the Lodge MAY be a reminder.
  • Icky: Yeah, given some have taken advantage of it, AND Bill's Big Bang Theory-Sheldon-ripoff friend Wain is there because his mental drugging got him nearly insane, we MAY need to go there soon and fix that.
  • Trigger: Meh, they wouldn't care who leads anyway, since, you know, they're mad as hatters, pun not intended.
  • Mad Hatter: I don't believe that for a second.
  • Cynder: "..... In knowing this, I'll, have to get back into the habit of using it again."
  • Dormouse: Ahem! We were looking for a way to escape?
  • SpongeBob: Right. Anyone got any bright ideas?
  • Icky: "We could do that thing Patrick did in Mythos."
  • Patrick: Yeah! What I did!... What did I do?
  • Bagheera: "Duh, YOU FORGOT?!"
  • Baloo: In his defense, some of us did too. That WAS several years ago.
  • Bagheera:... True. But... HE CONSUMED POPROCKS AND SODA AT THE SAME TIME AND CAUSED YOU TO MAKE A BURPING EXPLODSION!! Surely the one who DID it would remember!
  • Patrick: "Ohhhhhh, yeah!...... You guys got any on you right now?"
  • Bagheera: "(Groans)."
  • Mad Hatter: "Hold on, let me check my hat! (Takes hat off and pours in piles and piles of candy and many bodies of soda!)!"
  • Sunset: "HOLY SUGAR RUSH?!"
  • Starlight: "I THOUGHT THIS GUY WAS A TEA NUT, WHY DOES HE HAVE ALL THESE THINGS?!"
  • Mad Hatter: "I like to call it my "Alternative Sugar Sources" when the pure stuff runs out."
  • Lord Shen: "...... You put sugary junk foods, IN TEA, IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE ORGANIC SUGAR ON STAND BY?!"
  • March Hare: "A last resort, purely."
  • Lord Shen: "...... HOW ARE YOU ALIVE?! MUCH LESS NOT AS FAT AS THE PANDA?!"
  • Po: "HEY?!"
  • Mad Hatter: "Well we almost never run out of normal sugar, so-"
  • Icky: "Which is honestly a bit of a feat in of itself given how you guys spill more tea then ya drink at those parties of yours! Don't deny it, we DID first seen you guys in one of them!"
  • March hare: (Bangs his gavel) I have an excellent idea!
  • Icky: Change the subject?
  • March Hare: No. Let's divide the candy equally, then drink our soda. (Bonks Mad Hatter's head the moment he puts the hat back on)!
  • Cynder: "I thought the idea was to give one soda and some pop rocks to Patrick so he can burp us out."
  • Mad Hatter: "(Muffled in hat) Oh we haven't forgotten that in the slightest, Queen Cynder. It's just this pile uh, isn't all that organized, it's hard for me to even find a Twix or a Reese's Cup here! Hehehehe."
  • Lord Shen: "Bloody figures."
  • Mad Hatter: But perhaps you could help with that?
  • Lafayette: I know I already saw you pour that stuff out, but..... Wow! Again, how do you guys even LIVE?!
  • Mad Hatter: We're obsessed with tea, so at least we're not eating THIS junk food!
  • Lafayette: That's true.
  • Icky: "Wait but you guys literally said you keep it as an alternative sugar source."
  • March Hare: "Yes, but only if we ever run out of NORMAL sugar."
  • Icky: "..... Right, just correcting an inconsistency here."
  • Iago: I found some Pop Rocks.
  • Mad Hatter: Good! Now we just need to dig out some soda, so everyone, GET LOOKING!

French Narrator: 10 minutes later...

  • (Human Pinkie): (The Lodgers were still digging the sodas and pop rocks out of the pile) You guys were digging through candy?! D'aaaaaaw, I wish I was there!
  • (Sunset): Well, one, we can't have you confused for one of those clone Pinkies the Mirror Pools made and poofed away, AND... It's the Mad Hatter. That candy, came out of HIS hat. I hesitate as to what else he's got in it.

Cutaway

  • Mad Hatter: (Popped a minigun out of the hat) SAY HELLO TO MAH LITTLE FRIEND!!! (He fired it as he cackled wildly)

Present

  • (Human Applejack): I can honestly see that happening.
  • Rita: Uh, MH? How many pop rocks and soda bottles do you even have in here?
  • Mad Hatter: I lost count.
  • Rita:... I don't even know why I asked. Nothing makes sense with Wonderlandians.
  • Mad Hatter: Racist!
  • Rita: OH IT'S NOT RACIST IF IT'S TRUE! Also, didn't Wonderland started out as being an asylum world, for some BAFFLING reason?
  • Shifu: "Yeah admittingly, that was from the High Council's, most eccentric era."
  • Icky: "It is also early SAF material, so, yeah, even critics had pointed out how odd that idea is."
  • Sunset: Guys!
  • icky: Oh, right, focus. (They keep digging through the candy)
  • Tai: "Yeesh, Hats, how did ya stuff all this stuff in your hat?"
  • Icky: "That's something that should've been asked about a lot of things that came out of his hat. Like that one time he pulled out a giant spatula to get Spongebob out of the ceiling."
  • Mad Hatter: It's true.

French Narrator: Many, many minutes of candy digging later...

  • Everyone has found a bag of pop rocks each.
  • Icky: "..... Okay, why are the each of us collecting this stuff if it's just Patrick who's gonna do the Soda Pop Rocks Burplosion?"
  • Bagheera: "Cause we need to give him an extra boost. This place feels more sturdier then that of the Troll Kingdom in Mythos."
  • Baloo: Are you sure that's healthy?
  • Bagheera: Well Patrick doesn't believe in healthy since HE NEVER WASHES HIS HANDS AND LIKES BEING DIRTY!! He even believes Bikini Bottom had a civil war about the RIGHT to being filthy!
  • Squidward: "Well we actually didn't, but given how notoriously stupid that cultural wasteland is, it wouldn't surprise me if otherwise was true."
  • Icky: "Well, let's get to giving him the soda and the pop rocks, then brace for fucking impact."
  • Everyone started to shove Soda and Pup Rocks into Patrick.
TPoM_-_Burping_Scene_-_Operation-_Big_Blue_Marble

TPoM - Burping Scene - Operation- Big Blue Marble

Patrick's burping scene

  • The last burp was enough to weaken the cell.
  • Pang Bing: ".... This has to be the most disgusting way of escaping imprisonment I ever seen."
  • SpongeBob: Isn't that what you'd come to expect from us?
  • Pang Bing: Yes, but this is ridiculous! Let's move!
  • Gloria: Alright, everyone, stand back. I got this one. (She managed to smash her way through allowing everyone to escape)
  • Skipper: Let's roll! (They escaped and head out of Sunset Springs, as Poacha and the others saw)
  • Poacha:... Alright, griffs. Let's fly! AND, by fly, I mean sneakily follow them, not LITERALLY fly! (They did that)
  • (Human Pinkie): "I have a strange feeling those Griffin Poachers are gonna be a problem later!"
  • (Sunset): "Oh yeah, you weren't wrong."
  • (Human Rainbow Dash): No DUH they're gonna be a problem. I mean, COME ON, why wouldn't they be?

Later...

  • Cynder: (They made it out of Sunset Springs)... Alright. We made it.
  • Sparx: And we left a pretty good stink in our place for 'em, too.
  • Patrick: But I didn't toot in the cell, I burped, remember? It'd be a lot worse if that came out my butt!
  • Sparx: (Sighs)
  • Boss Wolf: "Pat, TMI."
  • Mr. Krabs: You're a strange one, you are, Patrick.
  • Icky: "So, should we get going on getting the Monster Moms' Husbando, or what?"
  • Lord Shen: "Not yet! Surely Kookoo would be smart enough to have those Griffin Poachers follow us. We need to practice some misdirection tactics."
  • Patrick: Who's Miss Directions? (Shen has Boss Wolf bonks him on the head with his hammer) You're welcome.
  • Lord Shen: "..... That's to say we need to exhaust them with a wild goose chase and have them lose us."
  • B.O.B.: "Okay, sure! Now where can we find some wild geese?"
  • Dr. Cockroach: "It's a metaphor, B.O.B."
  • Patrick: Metaphor? What's that? Some crazy new Everfree monster? (Everyone was confused) AaaaaAAAAAAH, got'cha!!
  • SpongeBob:... Okay, that one wasn't actually bad, let's move! (They traversed the Everfree after Shrek used a roar to scare off a manticore)
  • Icky: "(Quietly) So how exactly is the wild goose chase idea gonna work?"
  • Lord Shen: "(Quietly) Simple. We intentionally go through random areas and keep doing so until we're sure the Poachers are exhausted from this point."
  • Icky: (Quietly) Oh, DOI! Just wanted clarity here. So when exactly do we split up, if ever?
  • Lord Shen: "(Quietly) That's only if these poachers persist." (They continued pressing on as the Poacher Griffins followed and they found themselves put in comical danger multiple times)
  • Griffin Poacher #1:... Guys... I think they're CLEARLY onto us.
  • Poacha: No s***!
  • Griffin Poacher #2: Welp, we're done. No point in continuing onward if they're way too smart for that-
  • Poacha: NO! (She shoved his head into a tree) We are NOT going back failures! Haven't I taught you BETTER?! Where's your DEDICATION?! We're NOT going to let some dumb s*** scare us off! We're STICKING to the plan, end of discussion!
  • Griffin Poacher #1: Poacha, come on, be reasonable! Look at what's happened! Switcher's BUTT feathers are shaved off, Scar-Beak's EYE is turned to stone, Swipetalon's been poisoned by toxic carnivorous plants!
  • Poacha: Well at least they're ALIVE!
  • Griffin Poacher #1: For how much longer?!
  • Poacha: SHUT UP! I am NOT going back empty-taloned!! AND UNLESS YOU'D RATHER DIE TO ME THAN TO THE EVERFREE, WHICH IS MUCH MORE MERCIFUL, THEN NEITHER WILL YOU!!!
  • The other Griffin Poachers just scowled at her.....

A spontaneous second later.

  • Poacha was tied to a tree with fruit shoved into her mouth as her former possie flew away like cowards! Poacha was groaning angerly at this!
  • Poacha: "(Managed to spat out the fruit eventually)...... COWARDS?!..... (Groans)...... Gonna take me forever to make a new team after this. (The walkie-talkie acted up) Aw, crap."
  • (Kookoo): So, Poacha? How's the chase going?
  • Poacha: Uhhh... It's going great.
  • (Kookoo): Really? Because it sounds to me like you're tied to a tree because you threatened your partners who were too brave to take any s*** from you since it turned out the Lodgers knew you'd follow them.
  • Poacha:... Uhhhh... No it doesn't.
  • (Kookoo): Poacha, I may be insane, but I'm not stupid. THE DEAL'S OFF!!
  • Poacha: WAIT, I CAN STILL DO THIS-
  • (Kookoo): NO, I'M SWITCHING TO PLAN B!!
  • Poacha: WAIT, I'M STILL TIED TO THIS TREE- (He hung up)...... Son of a mule! (Groans) Serves me right accepting a deal from a guy called Dr. Kookoo Brain. Ugh, ya know what? That creep wants to do it on his own? Fine?! I'm out of this too!? (Tries to get herself untied) Ugh, and I was really hoping to nail a legendary deer too, guess that's not happening!

Meanwhile...

  • SpongeBob: (The Lodgers were wasted trying to reach their destination) Uggh... Uggh... AAHGH!... Oh DEAR NEPTUNE!! Do you think we lost them?
  • Iago: I don't know, but I DID lose my lunch back there.
  • Willie: So, how are we supposed to talk to this Typhon thing? Phil, you're the Greek mythology experts, and MOST of us flunked that stuff.
  • Saa: Oh, SOME of us beg to differ. This is a world where mythology THRIVES, AND a multiverse that does the same thing!
  • Phil: Plus, how the HECK am I supposed to know what THIS Typhon is like?! Satyrs here are supposed to be DIFFERENT here after all, so... Yeah. I'm not exactly the wisest choice to ask.
  • Puss: Then I suppose we'll just have to make it up as we go.
  • Icky: "Something we do a lot of, admittingly."
  • Puss: Something HEROES do a lot of. Come.
  • SpongeBob: Uh, Puss, you're a good hero, but I give the orders around here. Come on!... Hold that thought, can I get some water? (It started to rain)... Well... Thanks, whatever the weather god of this world is called.
  • Gilda: Meteora?
  • SpongeBob: No, that's Eclipsa's daughter.
  • Gilda:... Oy! It's also the name of the weather god you're thanking, dingus.
  • Spongebob: "...... Oh."
  • (Scroopfan): "Hey sorry guys, but we're going to the next chapter early because X is getting angsty."
  • Icky: "Wait wait wait a few more lines at least- (Suddenly the group get smacked by a turning page) BAH?!"

Chapter 5: More Interdimensional Madness/Heroes to the Rescue

Dr. Kookoo's Lab.

  • Dr. Kookoo Brain had his portal device set up. He was at a keyboard device on it.
  • Dr. Kookoo: "It's time for me to build me something I can truly rely on: Myself. FR13I/ID."
  • The portal device turned on and it summoned another version of him.
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "Welcome, Fellow Dr. Kookoo Brain of FR13I/ID! Welcome to the first United Universe of my Equestria."
  • FR13I/ID Kookoo: "..... It's really not that different."
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "Well to be fair you were from a copy universe, the kind of thing were the cosmic forces felt less inclined to make something more of a proper separate universe and just printed another reality like this with a tweak."
  • FR13I/ID Kookoo: "Oh I know that! In my dimension, I came from a reality where Equestria's friendship beliefs managed to go beyond Equestria."
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "Well how's that for different? Now for more! (Types again) 129!"
  • 129 Kookoo Brain: "(Appears forth) I'm from a reality where Twilight and her first friends are Alicorns?!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "120!"
  • 120 Kookoo Brain: "(Comes up! next)! I'm of the reality where no Sparkle Alicorn Ascension happened!..... I knew this cause I understand dimensions!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "121!"
  • 121 Kookoo Brain: "I'm of the reality where no Sparkle Alicorn Ascension happened! (120 Kookoo Brain stared at him)....... But I'm different cause Spike is instead a drake then a dragon and ergo never got wings!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "122!"
  • 122 Kookoo Brain: "(Comes in) I am of the dimension with Princess Applejack!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain: "123!"
  • 123 Kookoo Brain: "(Appears) I'm of that of Princess Rarity! That's why my lab coat's nicer!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain: "124!"
  • 124 Kookoo Brain: "(Appears while spitting out confetti) PLAH?! Ugh, finally I got out of the dimension where Pinkie Pie is alicorn princess?! SHE NEVER STOPS WITH THOSE PARTIES?!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "125!"
  • 125 Kookoo Brain: "(Appears) I'm of the dimension where Rainbow Dash is Princess!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "126!"
  • 126 Kookoo Brain: "(Appears) I have to question the practicality of making a shy reclusive animal lover like Fluttershy a princess."
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "127!"
  • 127 Kookoo Brain: "(Plops out) OH THANK YOU?! Starlight is TOO OVERPOWERED AS A PRINCESS?! She was close to actually nabbing me!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "..... Ohhhhh, kaaaaaaay. 128!"
  • 128 Kookoo Brain ended up coming out as a statue....
  • (Deadpool): "Nice call back to what Princess Sunset was like in Reverse of Fortune."
  • 127 Kookoo Brain: "...... Yeah I had been meaning to warn, he's from the reality where Sunset proved even more powerful as a princess and trumped all villains, but wasn't as intense to that brief reality change."
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "...... Good thing I have a de-petrifyer on standby for later. 129!"
  • 130 Kookoo Brain: "(Appears) I came from the dimension were Trixie is made princess...... For some, baffling reason!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "No kidding, at least the other guys of your dimension's twin counterparts made SENSE! 7A7 through 7P7!"
  • More Dr. Kookoo Brains came forth, some more alternate then the last, with 7P7, looking like he was covered with even more confetti!
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "And now, to finish this off for now, 877 through 880!"
  • More Dr. Kookoo Brains appeared with various alternate forms!
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "And that's enough of myself now! Now, fellow Kookoo Brains, I'd summon you all here to-"
  • 7P7 Kookoo Brain: "Wait, wait, you, SUMMONED ME?!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "...... Well yes I-"
  • 7P7 Kookoo Brain: "YOU FOOL?! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?! I'M FROM A DIMENSION OVER-RUN WITH PINKIE PIE CLONES FROM THAT MAGICAL POND THING?! THEY OVER-RAN EQUESTRIA AND MADE IT NON-STOP PARTIES?!"
  • 124 Kookoo Brain: "...... Wow, I had it better by comparison. At least the one that became Alicorn can be told to STOP after enough time!"
  • 7P7 Kookoo Brain: "My dimension has been considered a forbidden dimension to access to, CAUSE WHAT YOU DID, HAS JUST RISKED INTRODUCING THE PINKIES TO THE CONCEPT OF DIMENSIONAL TRAVEL?! THEY'RE GONNA KNOW ABOUT ME BEING WITH YOU GUYS, SO NOW, THEY'RE GONNA START DIMENSION HOPPING TO THIS AND ALL DIMENSIONS OF THE KOOKOOS YOU BROUGHT HERE?!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "....... Oopsies. Sorry guys, it's just, I was having a Louger problem and needed back up-"
  • Other Kookoo Brains but 7P7 and obviously the statue: "Oh it's okay, mistakes happen-"
  • 7P7 Kookoo Brain: "BUT THIS IS A MAJOR ONE?! YOU NEED TO SEND ME BACK BEFORE-"
  • Suddenly, the machine returned back to P7P, as suddenly, the portal color turned pink!
  • As such, large armies of Pinkie Clones charged in all shouting fun, lead by a royally dressed Pinkie Pie clone!
  • Leading Pinkie Clone: "I AM THE GRAND PIE, AND WE SHALL THROW THE MULTIVERSE A PINKIE PIE PARTY?!"
  • All Kookoo Brains scream as they got overwhelmed!
  • The ongoing stress to the machine caused it to open up new portals across Equestria, spilling over figures from those other dimenions, as even more portals for other dimensions opened up and spilled over more figures from there!

Louger's Location.

  • The Lougers saw the portals opening up!
  • Starlight: "...... What the heck's going on?!"
  • Icky: "Wild guess, but, I think we may had forced Dr. Kookoo to pre-maturely play with his dimensional plans and obviously something went wrong and now we're being invaded by cross-dimensional portals to other crazy realms!"
  • Iago: "Well now it's raining folks from other dimensions!"
  • Pang Bing: "..... This is bad! If this continues, it might end up opening portals to more dangerous dimensions! Like, dimensions suffering apocalyptic infestations, eviler or more reckless dimensions, or anything from the dimensional Outer Rims, including the MAD RIMS?!"
  • Shifu: "Or glories forbid the mass dimensional portals challenges the integrity of the boundary generators, and risk the Banished Realms losing it's barrier!"
  • Sunset: "Or worse, this whole thing ends up endangering Human Equestria!"
  • Starlight: "Equally bad, this uncontrollable portal thing UPSETS THE OUTERS?!"
  • Icky: "...... Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaah, we may wanna put the Typhoon thing-"
  • Sunset: Typhon.
  • Icky: "Whatever, on hold now and just go get Twilight's help."
  • Belladonna: "For the best, cause Kookoo for now is no longer our problem. This Dimensional Madness is."
  • Suddenly, Twilight and friends teleported in!
  • Twilight: "GUYS THERE'S DIMENSIONAL CRAZINESS GOING ON, WHAT HAPPENED?!"
  • Sunset: "..... I once again became the source of dimensional insanity...... And no giant Millipede this time."
  • ???: "Oh Sunny, what a jam we all got ourselves into."
  • Millipede was seen resting on a giant jar of jam likely from another Dimension."
  • Sunset: "...... Spoke too soon."
  • Millipede: "Ya know, I was just chilling being New Mewni's head of dimensional embassy after I got all my Xzar legality issues settled, and then I suddenly found that all the doors of my mansion now apart of New Mewni that connected to all realms spontaneously opened up and all sorts of cross-dimensional hoosegow began to happened, and I traced it all back here..... I don't suppose you wouldn't mind intervention from the guy that knows his dimensions, sans the powers for, reasons you know."
  • Discord: "I think we're good in the elongated reformed trickster character department."
  • Millipede: "Oh, but what about one that's good on dimensions?"
  • Discord: "...... Fine, you're in."
  • Sunset: ".... Well, at least you're on our side now, but PLEASE remember what we agreed on-"
  • Millipede: "Let's not bring those old wounds back, I know this. Now, onto the subject...... Who's to blame for this fiasco?"
  • Icky: "A Jackass named Dr. Kookoo Brain."
  • Millipede: "KOOKOO BRAIN?!"
  • Starlight: "..... You-"
  • Millipede: "OF COURSE I KNEW HIM?! I had automatic knowledge of all geniuses once upon a time! So did he finally managed his portal device?! And if so, did he used it to bring a lot of himself into this realm, INCLUDING himself from the forbidding 7P7 dimension where it's overrun with Pinkie Clones?!" (There was an awkward silence)... Well, did he?
  • Private: This guy's scaring me with how much he knows.
  • Spongebob: "..... To be honest, we didn't exactly saw him again after we escaped and dodged his Griffin Poachers."
  • Millipede: "..... I'll assume yes then. We need to get to his portal device pronto!"
  • Sunset: Well, that Typhon thing was pointless.
  • Lord Shen: It wasn't going to go anywhere anyway.
  • Icky: Because MSM was procrastinating on episode progress again?
  • Lord Shen: No, (Quietly) Even if not inaccurate, (Openly) It's because we don't know anything about this world's Typhon anyway aside from some unreliable witnesses.
  • Black Kat: Oh, well, why didn't you just ask US?
  • Discord: Yeah. Wait, what?
  • Lord Shen:... YOU two, handle Typhon for us?
  • Black Kat: We ARE creatures of chaos, and technically speaking, so is Typhon. The original one WAS exiled in Tartarus after all, soo... Yeah, you deal with this mess, we'll deal with the OTHER mess. Alright, Dissy... (Dubbed as Scorpion as they teleported away) GET OVER HEEEERE!!! *POOF*
  • Iago:... Those two are going to piss that thing off even more, I'm calling it right now.
  • Belladonna: But we must intercept this infestation before it escalates beyond repair.
  • Twilight: Yeah, and from the looks of it, you have ANOTHER problem on your hands or... Other appendages. (They saw that the Windigo storm picked up)
  • Starlight: WHAT?! They couldn't last a BIT longer than that?!
  • Creeper: Well, that place is boned in more ways than one, and that's NOT pretty. I seen that happen many times in the Spiral Castle in Prydain, and TRUST ME-
  • Brandy: We GET it!! Come ON!!!
  • The Lougers charged forth as crazy things pour out of the portals!
  • Mobster Ponies appeared from a portal!
  • Mobster Pony 1: "MYAH, WE'RE MOBSTER PONIES SEE, MYAH SEE, MYAH?!"
  • Icky: "OH WHY DOES EVERY TIME WE MEET MOBSTER CHARACTERS THEY KEEP SAYING "MYAH"?!"
  • The Group dodged their tommy gun fire!
  • Pang Bing: "That was a Mobsterverse portal!"
  • Another Portal opened up as a badly drawn sonic character showed up, as it ran away from a herculean monster with the three heads of Spongebob, Bart and Big Bird as it roared like Hulk!
  • Spongebob Head: "THE KILLER CRAB?!"
  • Bart Head: "DON'T HAVE A COW, MAN?!"
  • Big Bird Head: "Can you spell Zebra!?"
  • Icky: "OH NOT THE BOOTLEGVERSE?! ANYTHING BUT THE BOOTLEGS?!"
  • The Three Headed Monster saw them!
  • Starlight: "YIPE?! (Fires magic at the monster, momentarily knocking it out)!"
  • Iago: "At this point I rather fight Everfree's native monsters! (The group continued on)!"
  • Suddenly, another portal opened up but it's a bunch of Mothrons!
  • Leading Mothrons: "(Lord Cobra's voice) Behold, Villain League, a new realm to conquer for mother darkness?!"
  • Po: "THE VILLAIN LEAGUE?! AS MOTHRONS?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!"
  • Pang Bing: "They must be from the LightMot United Universe where everyone is a Lightfly, Mothron or Light or dark Rossian!"
  • Gazelle: "..... (Readies Uniter Blade) Guys, let ME send them back home, you go and seek out Dr. Kookoo Brain!"
  • Spongebob: "Are you sure, Gazelle? (Mothron Versions of the Dark Dragon Imperials and Team Nefarious showed up as well)"
  • Gazelle: "I may as well since I'm the only one an actual threat to guys like this, go?!"
  • The Group charged on as the Mothron Villains swarmed!
  • Another Portal spat out a pirate ship from the Pirate Dimension that crashed in, another portal produced a stampeding army of Transylvanian Monsters, Another Portal began tp spill over the Cybervoid, another portal began to spat out Memeverse Characters, including the surprised SMG4 crew that comedically crashed in!
  • Thaumorpheus was forced out of a portal to the magic realm as magic realmian influence spilled in!
  • Thaumorpheus: "OH, OH MY GOODNESS, WHAT, WHAT IS GOING ON?!"
  • Spongebob: "DON'T WORRY THAUMORPHEUS WE'RE ON THE CASE OF FIXING ALL THIS?!"
  • Thaumorpheus: "Lougers?! What is going on-"
  • Icky: "NO TIME TO EXPLAIN, JUST TRY TO KEEP THE MAGIC REALM FROM SPILLING IN AND PLEASE DON'T TELL THE OTHER OUTERS ABOUT THIS?! (The Lougers charged on as Thaumorpheus immediately tried to push the magic realm influence back into the realm proper)."
  • A portal spat out the 1930s version of Mickey Mouse who was surprised to see everything in color!
  • Millipede: "Bygone Dimension!"
  • Another Portal Opened as the Fanon Starswirls charged out!
  • Discord Starswirl: "FIND THE CANON ONE!!"
  • Icky: "Annnnnnnd the Fanon Starswirls are back?! GREAT?!"
  • Another portal opened as a giant space mantis flew in roaring as it is followed by space bugs!
  • Millipede: "Space Bug Dimension!"
  • Another portal opened up with a legion of gun trotters armed with Intensifiers charged in!
  • Icky: "INTENSIFIVERS?! WHAT DIMENSION ALLOWS PEOPLE TO HAVE INTENSIFIERS IN THAT QUANTITY?!"
  • Millipede: "United Universe-W3AP10N, where all forms of weaponry is legal."
  • icky: "...... HOW IS A DIMENSION LIKE THAT NOT DESTROYED FOR HOW MUCH POTENTIAL IT HAS TO MAKE AN INTER-DIMENSIONAL EMPIRE?!"
  • Millipede: "CAREFUL?! (Cautiously while suspecting) Careful not to give them ideas. (Looks to two hidden Xirds writing notes about what Icky said) HEY DON'T GET ANY IDEAS, I WILL HAVE STAR DEFEND THAT REALM'S RIGHT TO BE STUPID!! (The Xirds cowardly backed off)."
  • Shifu: "Well regardless, THIS IS MORE THAN ENOUGH REASON TO STOP THIS MADNESS!!"
  • Tigress: "The village shouldn't be too far now, we- (Sees all the Pinkie Pie Clones over-whelming it)...... You got to be kidding me."
  • Pinkie: "...... NOT THIS AGAIN?! (Puts on her uniqueness shirt to avoid confusion)!"
  • Pang Bing: "..... Of course. Exactly like you said, Millipede. He tampered with 7P7. A dimension where the Pinkie Pie Clones were failed to be quelled and ended up becoming a dominating race under the Grand Pie."
  • Twilight: "Well thank GOODNESS we resolved OUR Pinkie Pie clone problem."
  • Rainbow Dash: But let's keep it from being OUR PROBLEM before we get ANOTHER realm where ONE character takes over! The MORT Dimension was bad enough!
  • Suddenly, a portal opened up and began to rain in more otherdimensional entities!
  • A Jurassic Park T-Rex roared in, Entitles dressed as Dragon Ball Z characters poured in, A Super-Criminal Version of Plankton came in on a giant robot, Alien Versions of the League, Dark Dragon Scourge and Team Nefarious (More then Normally) Came in on saucers, Pirate Universe and Pirate Dimension vessels poured in, Lego Characters, and so much beyond count!
  • Suddenly, two Candleians came forth and saw this!
  • Candleian 1: "ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT, WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?! WHO OPENED THE PORTAL TO 7P7 AND CAUSED THE DIMENSIONAL DEVICE TO DO IT TO OVERLOAD WITH A MASS TRANSIT OF PINKIE PIES AND CAUSE ALL, THIS, TO HAPPEN?!"
  • Candleian 2: "Anymore at this point and we could start seeing portals from the Infested Rims, the Mad Rims, or All-Mother forbid this compromises the Boundary Generators of all realms and free all of hell's occupents of each of those realms?! Who ever did this is facing STIFF criminal penalties and a stay in the Candleian Prison for inter-dimensional criminals?!"
  • Pang Bing: "Oh good, Candleians! Common enforcers of Dimensional Travel! At least SOME good came out of those portals. Ahem. It's good you two are here, cause we know EXACTLY who's responsible?!"
  • Candleian #1: THEN OUT WITH IT, CAT!! WHO DID IT?!

Dr. Kookoo Brain's Lab.

  • The Kookoo Brains were over-whelmed by the Pinkie Clones!
  • Grand Pie: "Thanks for allowing us to be able to throw the Multiverse the best party ever!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "IT WAS AN ACCIDENT!!"
  • Poacha flew in!
  • Poacha: "Holy CRUD?! I was gonna come in to kick your butt as payback, but MAN Karma is awesome to me!"
  • Dr. Kookoo OG: "OH SURE, RUB IT IN!!"
  • Poacha: "(Sees a weapon and grabs it)..... Actually, I think I can still come after that legendary deer after all, but for my own devices, not cause of you, Doc! Time for me to go hunting- (Got grabbed by the clones) AGGGH?!"
  • Pinkie Clones: "FUNFUNFUNFUNFUNFUINFUN?!"
  • Poacha: "AHHH, NO, GET OFF OF ME, YOU CRAZY PINK PONIES!!"
  • Grand Pie: "YAAAAY?! MORE FRIENDS?! MORE FRIENDS FOR MORE PARTIES?! (LAUGHS KINDA UNHINGED OF MAD STOPLESS PARTIES)?!"
  • Suddenly, 7P7 Pinkie Pie OG and the Main 6 of 7P7 jumped in!
  • 7P7 OG Pinkie: "GRAND PIE, THIS HAS TO STOP NOW?!"
  • Grand Pie: "Oh poo, it's the party pooper original! Pinkie Pies, catch her and reteach her the joy of parties?! (The Pinkie Clones charged)!"
  • P7P Twilight: "If I can get to the one Pinkie Pie clone that got intelligence, I could be able to beam her back into the pond of our realm and these Pinkie Clones will be without a leader- (She and the others get overrealmed) AGGGH?! There's too many pinkies?!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain OG: "WHAT IS EVEN GOING ON ANYMORE?!"
  • 7P7 Kookoo Brain: "THEY'RE FROM MY DIMENSION, AND THE LAST LEVEL OF RESISTANCE AGAINST THESE CLONES AS OTHERS WERE MADE TO PARTY ENDLESSLY?! EVEN MY CELESTIA AND LUNA WERE MADE TO PARTY HARDY UNTIL THEY'RE TOO EXHAUSTED TO FIGHT BACK?!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain: "....... I'm in severe cosmic doodoo, am I?"
  • Poacha: Hell YEAH you are.
  • Pinkie #1: Is anypinkie even following the reality of this anymore? (The others murmured in agreement)
  • ???: HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!!! (The Candleians arrived with all the loose interdimensional people)
  • Icky: Where's Kooky Brain? We're gonna take away all his OTHER legs!!!
  • SMG4 Saiko: I WOULD LIKE TO GO BACK TO THE MEMEVERSE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! (She took out her hammer)
  • Lego Minifigure #1: As would I to MY dimension. Do you know how HARD it is to move your arms outside this range?! (He tried and failed)
  • SMG4 Bob: YEAH, BOI! WHERE DAT BITCH AT?! I AM GOING TO GIVE HIM THE MOST PAINFUL HIGH-FIVE OF HIS LIFE!!
  • SpongeBob: THAT would be HIM! (He pointed at Kookoo Brain)
  • Candleian #2:... A donkey?
  • Candleian #1: Yeesh, where has this multiverse gone to?
  • Memeverse Ganon: YOU MUST DIIIIIE!!! (Rexy roared)
  • Kookoo Brain:... Uh... Doesn't all of you beating me up at once seem TOO extreme? Plus, you KINDA need me to get you back home.
  • Grand Pie: He's got a point there.
  • Icky: "..... You're lucky by proxy of priority that's the case! That said, you're the topic again once we get this portal thing you made to calm down!"
  • Kookoo Brain: "It's the Pinkie Pie clones?! They won't stop coming in!"
  • Grand Pie: "That's because we're making lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots-"
  • Icky: "WE GET IT, YOU'RE MAKING ALOT OF PINKIES?! Well can't you tell your infinite pinkies to STOP COMING IN ALREADY!?"
  • Grand Pie: "Aw come on, I just wanna offer infinite parties!"
  • P7P Applejack: "The Grand Pie's too obsessed with parties to listen to reason!"
  • Main Dimension Pinkie: "I know how to handle this! (Pulls out an MMMM cake out of nowhere, this got all Pinkies attention, especially the Grand Pie)! HEY, PINKIE PIE CLONES!? I'LL GIVE YA THIS MMMM CAKE IF YOU GO BACK TO YOUR OWN DIMENSION AND STAY THERE?!"
  • Grand Pie: "AN MMMM CAKE?! HOW COULD WE RESIST?!"
  • P7P Kookoo Brain: "...... Cake?! YOU CAN SWAY THEM WITH CAKE ALL THIS TIME?!"
  • P7P Twilight: "(Quietly) Finally, a chance to finally cortail the Pinkies for good."
  • P7P OG Pinkie: "(Quietly) Well, it's something at least."
  • Main Dimension Pinkie: "THEN GO GET IT?! (Bucks the MMMM Cake back into the portal as all Pinkie Pie Clones and Grand Pie chase after it)....."
  • The Portal Device calmed down after the last Pinkie Pie clone went in....
  • Candleian 1: "..... Okay folks, show's over. (Calls in back up for more Candleians) Time for everyone here to go home, we got some rogue portals to close up and misplaced dimensional denizens to take home."
  • OG Dr. Kookoo Brain tried to sneak off, but was intersected by Sunset and Starlight.
  • Starlight: "YOU'RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET?! Literally cause you're lab's in Everfree."
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain: "..... Uhhh, other Kookoo Brains, back me up here- (The Other Kookoo Brains were contained by Candleians)..... Wow, I lost control of this quickly."

Outside

  • Dr. Kookoo Brain: (As he was dragged into a Candleian carriage) Come on! I just wanted to see the Human Equestria! Was that such a bad thing? Was that so wrong? (He was tossed into the carriage) FYI it's a rhetorical question, I know the answer MIIIIIIGHT be a bit biased to me under certain reasons-
  • Candleian 1: Have fun seeing interdimensional prison on the Candleian Trial, buddy!"
  • Dr. Kookoo Brain: "..... And now I'm as depressed as Eeyore."
  • Donkey: "Hey you leave that extremely manically depression-stuffed donkey outta this, you have lost your RIGHT to reference him like that!"
  • Millipede: "Ain't that a fact?"
  • Kookoo Brain: LEMME OUT!! LEMME OOOOOOOUUUUUUUT!! (He was dragged away)
  • Sunset: Yeah, sure, keep screaming like a maniac, and we'll EVENTUALLY do what we say! (Laughs)
  • SpongeBob:... So... Did we do it?
  • Sunset: YOU did it. We still have some business of our OWN to attend to. No glowing cutie marks means no friendship mission completion, and you know the rules.
  • Boss Wolf: You mean the rules that technically don't apply to us?
  • Sunset: No, I mean the SAME rules that say that we don't ALWAYS need you to meddle in friendship missions.
  • Boss Wolf:... That Human Equestria has really made you quite the troll, hasn't it?
  • Sunset: "That's internet exposure to you."
  • Icky: "Well with that I guess this means we have to tell Dissy and Black Kat that there's no need to drag Typhon into this anymore-"
  • ???: We already know. (Discord and Black Kat appeared)
  • Discord: Talk about a wasted plot element. All that build up about Typhon and we don't even get to see it on the episode? Ugh, no wonder this is a flashback episode, it would've STUNK as a mainline episode.
  • Black Kat: Well, TBF, Typhon was PRETTY nuts and messed up. There's NO way we were gonna get his help anyway.
  • Icky: "And there was still the dimensional insanity that happened."
  • Discord: "Yeah but we ended up not having too much fun with it."
  • Gazelle came back covered in claw marks but alive.
  • Gazelle: "..... The Villain Teams as Mothrons..... Perhaps the most overwhelming adversaries I faced, but, I'd managed to send them back to their dimension..... BUT CARAMBA I am exhausted! Please tell me we caught the burro!"
  • Icky: "Yeah, we caught the jackass. He's being arrested by Hekapoo's adopted race and taken to a dimensional prison now."
  • Gazelle: Good.
  • Sunset: Then I suppose it's my turn to finish the episode. Sunset Springs and Mom need us.

Chapter 6: Time With The Parents

Sunset Springs

  • Sunset: (She and Starlight appeared at their mother's home as the Windigos were freezing things in impatience)... So, you think we are finally good to get our parent conflict dealt with now?
  • Starlight: That's what the Map sent us to do while the Lodgers and others temporarily evacuate the place before they freeze.
  • Sunset:... (Deep breath with steamy breath)... Let's do this. (They entered) Mom? Are you or are you not frozen? (She was just half-frozen save the mouth and the legs as she comically tried to walk her way around)
  • Sundown:... More or less. Oh HIBERNIA this stings. It's like needles being impaled all around me. Why did movies make this look so harmless?!
  • Starlight: If they were cartoons, then that's how they work. Anyway, we finished off Kookoo Brain... Rather quickly, so he shouldn't be a problem.
  • Sundown: Then by all means, I could use a little help! I have never been so embarrassed right now.
  • Sunset: Don't worry, Mom. (They built a fire and thawed her out but she still fell)... Mom?
  • Sundown: Sorry, I... Still feel numb. My body needs time to warm up. Just put me near the fire.
  • Sunset: Already on it. (They did that) So, how do we handle the Windigos?
  • Sundown: "Well, getting the obvious out of the way, they are no longer in a listening mood now. You took too long on your part and are likely not to take you seriously anymore."
  • Sunset: (Sighs) I seriously wish they weren't so impatient.
  • Sundown: Everypony does. But, since you said Kookoo is done for, you can find a way to tell them that.
  • Starlight: How the Tart are we supposed to do that?
  • Sundown: LANGUAGE!
  • Starlight: Mom, we're MARES!
  • Sunset: To answer your question, I HAVE an answer. The moment they sense that negativity here has gone down a notch, they'll at LEAST be in a listening mood. I just need to talk to them the same way I talked to them before.
  • Sundown: I don't think they'll be in an easy-to-reach position, even if Kookoo is gone.
  • Sunset: I have to TRY!... (She went outside)
  • Starlight:... She's DEFINITELY dead this time! (Sunset went into the center as the Windigos were circling above her with her hooves beginning to freeze up)...
  • Sunset:... (She screamed angrily getting their attention)... (The Windigos noticed her and arrived)... (They continued talking as the freezing made her cranky enough to adequately talk to them)
  • Sundown:... I don't know if that cold is going to drive her nuts.
  • Starlight: LOTS of things have driven her nuts.
  • Sundown: "Touché." (They watched as Sunset continued communicating with the Windigos)...
  • Sunset:... (They thawed the frozen areas of her off and stopped the storms)... (They screeched)... They say that they have already collected enough negativity from the pain Kookoo has been causing.
  • Starlight: WHAT?! You mean we got worked up over NOTHING?!
  • Sunset: They just needed something to do while we were doing our part.
  • Starlight:... I suppose that's fair. (The Windigos screeched)
  • Sundown: Your offer has been given, fair creatures. Now go. We shall meet again the following year. (The Windigos left).... Well, now that that's settled, how's about we spend some time together, maybe pay the Sire's Hollow a visit?
  • Sunset: "Good idea, cause, it so happens that..... I need to make right with dad while we're at it. I was upset with him cause he was being hard to me, not realizing that he was trying to put me back on the Human Dimension in so you can meet me there."
  • Sundown: "To be fair with him, he didn't figure I would make the mistake of trusting a crazy donkey scientist that would hijack everything from me. That said, Firelight was hard on you? That's so unlike him given what I heard about how he was interacting with Starlight."
  • Starlight: "I'm, surprised he had it in him too given that, I messed up epicly too."
  • Sundown: "...... Wow, guess making questionable choices runs in the family. (The three broke into laughter after a bit)."

Shire's Hollow

  • Firelight was seen reflecting his choices over a smoothie.
  • ???: Hey, Firelight, you might wanna take a look at this!
  • Firelight: "I will when I'm done drowning in smoothies."
  • ???: "Would you at least want to see your ex-wife back after all these years?"
  • Firelight: "(SPAT OUT SMOOTHIE IN SURPRISE) WHAT?!" (Runs out to see Sundown)
  • Sundown:... Hello, Firelight.
  • Firelight: "..... Oh Sundown, you haven't changed a bit...."
  • Sundown: "Technically I did age a bit."
  • Firelight: "Well, I call it, age with grace."
  • Sundown: "Oh stop, we're not married anymore, remember. Don't you have another mare now which is technically Starlight's mother?"
  • Firelight: "Well, yeah, but.... I was still worried about you being in Everfree. Anything okay?"
  • Sundown: "Oh relax, apart from mistakenly trusting a mad donkey scientist and may have to redeem myself to Sunset Springs, I've been better."
  • Firelight: "...... I, think I'm missing some context here."
  • Sundown: Then we have a lot to talk about.
  • Sunset/Starlight: "And you may want to sit down, for a lot of it."

French Narrator: Later...

  • Firelight:... Oh... Dear... That's rough.
  • Sundown: It truly was. But... Sunset and Starlight proved that they're not as bad as we thought.
  • Sunset: Well, much of that WAS the Lodgers' aid, but... This is just making us bad. Ahem. That is to say... We did A part. I mean, Kookoo Brain was- (Firelight scoffed a bit)... Not intended to be part of the friendship mission, I'm sure.
  • Starlight: Or more like, a family mission. We helped her home do the job of making sure the Windigos don't freeze any other land just to find food by offering it themselves.
  • Firelight:... How?
  • Sundown: It's the Everfree Forest. Danger brings it with them when they hunt, and with that, negativity.
  • Firelight:... I suppose that makes sense. I didn't even believe they were real.
  • Sundown: Not many ponies do. And for good reason.... I'm so sorry we both made it hard for you, Sunset.
  • Sunset: It's okay. We're not proud of what we did either.
  • Starlight: No. Especially me.
  • Firelight: "Well, I'm sorry for making you girls felt like that."
  • Sundown: "And I'm sorry I acted poorly too....."
  • Starlight: "...... Now, this being said....... Mom, WHY DID YOU OBSCURE US ABOUT THE FACT THERE'S AN OBSCURE COMMUNITY IN THE EVERFREE?!"
  • Sundown: "In my defense, that IS a secretive community, also one placed in a forest known for danger. As if I'm expected to just expose that to even family. I would've looked terrible at keeping secrets AND a bad parent for taking her children to a place that, apart from a special stone, wasn't even much to look at anyway, so, it would've exposed you two to needless danger for not even much of a sight."
  • Starlight: "..... Yeah fair point. (Starlight and Sunset's cutie marks finally glowed). And with that, the Map finally signaled that we're done here."
  • Firelight: "You're welcome to stay for a bit longer though. The Sire was quick to throw a big welcoming celebration for Sundown coming back. The mayor was in on it too."
  • Sundown: "Well I hope the old goofball doesn't get too carried away."
  • Firelight: "Actually, we're under a new mayor now."
  • Sundown: "...... Oh. Was I gone for THAT long?"
  • Firelight: Yes. It's a long story that the new mayor doesn't really like to talk about.
  • Sundown: "..... I've been gone longer than I thought. Not helping that it's not easy to tell time when a lot of days are the same, fighting off Everfree creatures and all that."
  • Firelight: So, what do you say, girls? You wanna stay with us for a while?
  • Sunset:... Oh, why not? It's the holidays.

Human Equestria, Present Day

  • Sunset: And, that's the story of Starlight and I reunited our parents. It went... As well as any family reunion would go if... You had the right chaotic family.
  • Human Rainbow Dash: ".... If not for that fact magic exists and that we know you're from another dimension, I'd be incredibly skeptical about the part where otherly dimensional portals opened up like mad late into this story."
  • Sunset: You have no idea. But after that Millipede stuff, you better believe it.
  • Human Pinkie: Not a bad story.
  • Sci-Twi: Feels a little rushed, though.
  • Sunset: LOTS of their adventures are rushed sometimes.
  • Dog Spike: STILL angry I can't have chocolate! MMPH!!!
  • Human Pinkie: "Blame dog biology, Spike."
  • Dog Spike: Ugh, why couldn't I have been born human?!
  • Sci-Twi: Because you're more happy as a dog, right?
  • Dog Spike:... Kinda. I mean, there's plenty of cute dogs in the neighborhood, and-
  • Sci-Twi: Yeah, that's all we need to hear.
  • Human Rainbow Dash: Please, you have the easy life. You don't have to deal with the crap humans gotta go through. In fact, dogs get SO pampered and treated, and yeah, some laws about dogs are a little harsh like euthanizing one that bites someone, but still, dogs have an ounce more freedom than humans. Humans love and cuddle them like they're basically their butlers.
  • Dog Spike:... Oh... Wow... When you, put it like that... Cool. That sounds WAY better than chocolate.
  • Human Rainbow Dash: Meh, it's sometimes painful at times.
  • Sci-Twi: Oh, that reminds me. Spike? Time for your trip to the Pet Party!
  • Human Pinkie: Pet Party, what's that?
  • Sci-Twi: Wink. (Human Pinkie was confused)... You know, it's a place where Spike can 'check-up' on all his pet friends. And he can have a 'shot' of fun while he's there.
  • Dog Spike: Yep! It's gonna be FUN!
  • Human Pinkie: OOOOOH! Sounds FUN! Can we come?! PLEEEEASE?!?
  • Sci-Twi: Nono... (Whispering to Pinkie) I can't say where I'm really taking him, or Spike will freak out and run away! And it takes FOREVER to get him back!
  • Human Pinkie: Oh, come ON! (Pets Spike) It's not like you're taking him to the VEEET! (The word echoed in Spike's head)
  • Sci-Twi: NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! (Spike got a crazed frown and twitched his eyes and began running outside leaving a him-shaped hole in the glass window)
  • (Human Flash Sentry): AHHH! SPIKE, WAIT- AAHHH!!! LOOK OUT FOR THAT- (Car sounds were heard) AHH!!
  • (Juniper): AHHHHH!!! MY BOSS IS GONNA KILL ME!!
  • (Wallflower): WHAAA, SPIKE, WHAT ARE YOU- *Splat* AWWWWW NO!!!
  • (Timber Spruce): AW MAN, MY DATE'S RUINED!!!
  • (Human Flash Sentry): NYAH!! THIS IS INSANITY!!! AHAHH!!!
  • Human Pinkie: Ohhhhhh.... Crud.
  • Human Rainbow Dash: Is it cruel to say we should get a shock-
  • Everyone: YES!!
  • Human Rarity: "Everyone, we need to catch that pooch!" (They ran off)

Epilogue

In the present....

  • Twilight was seen with the other Main 5 again.
  • Twilight:... So... Has anything interesting happened lately?
  • Applejack: Nah. Guess, to speak like Icky here, the producers have started drifting away from MLP since it was concluded-
  • Pinkie: Uh, it's supposed to STILL be Season 8.
  • Applejack:... Still?
  • Pinkie: I know.
  • Rainbow Dash: Uaaaahhhhh! When is something INTERESTING gonna happen to us for once?! I'm honestly starting to miss Stormtrolli now."
  • Pinkie: "Yeah, and those three hobgoblins that look like Ed Edd and Eddy."
  • Rarity: "Well at this point I would even take the return of Mr. Lawerence at this point, it'll give us something to DO at least."
  • Twilight: "I-......... Wait huh?"
  • Pinkie: "Oh, it was a "Waaaaaay before you thing", like, ya know, our own secret origin stories like how you had Magic University. The guys we mentioned were our first secret bad guys too and how we first met each other before you came to Ponyville."
  • Twilight: "...... And why is this being brought up now?"
  • Pinkie: "Because the canon show moved faster then SAF."
  • Twilight: "Give me a serious answer."
  • Fluttershy: "Oh, well, you see, you just never asked."
  • Twilight:... Alright... I'll-
  • Rainbow Dash: Already got the memo.... Come on.

Fin?
