The Main 7 and the Lougers go to Hoofville to confront Lightning Dust to talk to her about her potaintional relapse and her involvement with the Washouts, only to discover that Lightning Dust was busy spending alot of time with Acidburn that it was absolutely impossable for her to have founded the Washouts to begin with, as she was actselly confused about that, even admited brief excitment before remembering that she was mistaken for being the founder. After a more reckless, violent, and destructive Pegasus and childhood bully of Lightning named Velocity Raze came and tried to capture her, the misfits become concerned that there may be an imposter on the loose framing Lightning Dust to have relapsed into her old ways as a leader of a daredevil team, and gave Velocity an extremely wrong idea. Thus, the group, along with Lightning Dust and her friends, went to confront the other washout members, Short Fuse and Rolling Thunder, of which surprisingly the two are not actual Wonderbolt Drop-outs, though still on the reserves, that though Rolling Thunder is relitively accreate to what Rainbow Dash saw, Short Fuse is not AS tempermental and was actselly taking some anger management classes due to his anger prone tendingies. They two were surprised that they were appearently apart of a daredevil group called the Washouts, of which Short Fuse almost suffered a relapse while Rolling Thunder stupidly missed the point and even liked the idea of a doppleganger daredevil! This made the group concerned about this, and with Mirror Pools and identical realities ruled out, the group, now with Short and Rolling tagging along to help, arrived to a latest show in Las Pegacus hosted in the Flimflam Brothers Resort, as the heroes confronted the imposter trio personally on the resort arena before the show could start, with the surprising arriveal of Spiracle and Vertex, with Spiracle demanding the Faux Lightning Dust to "End the charade now, Brother". Thus, the angered Faux Lightning Dust bursted into green flames and reveiled himself to be the still corrupted brother of Spiracle, Labrum, and even bigger shocker, the fake Rolling and Short Fuse reveiled themselves as Gaster's still living brothers, Caster and Buster, who's bodies actselly survived Gaster's attack, but were teleported away by Labrum who happened to be in the same swamp and took the two back into Thorx's hyberation temple to cure them of their infection and wounds and brought them back as his minions, of which Labrum had left the temple with try and make his own changeling hive and make one stronger and more extreme then Chrysalis' was already, in deeming Chrysalis not enough to meet the Changeling Goals, and that Throx would not awake quick enough to prevent her Daughter's downfall, so they laid in secret to find a way to see the perfect plan to engorge themselves in love, and they had witnessed the events of Wonderbolt Accadamy and found the perfect scapegoat for the plan: Lightning Dust, of which they ended up profecting their roles as Lightning Dust, Rolling and Short Fuse so much that they failed to keep up with current events and ended up assuming that Lightning Dust would become a bitter piece of trash and that Rolling and Short would become failures because of their flaws, Rolling being stupidly thrillseeking and Short having his temper problems, thus, they planned to get love by being "The Washouts", so all that love they would get as famed and sympathic Daredevils rejected by the Wonderbolts would be used to power an anchient and powerful Changeling Spell, A Changeling Transmutantion Spell, a spell that can turned turn other creatures into Changelings, or have Changeling-Eqsed Quilities, as Labrum hoped to use the spell to turn the Washouts' Fans into his new Changeling Hive, as he would've become emperor! However, Labrum desided to not let himself be cheated out of his goal just yet, as the large arena's crowd of ponies love for the Washouts alone was enough to fuel the power needed for the spell, thus Labrum casted it, turning all of the Washouts' Fans, even poor Scootaloo, into Changelings, as Las Pegacious gets taken over by a resurgence of corrupted Changelings as Labrum becomes emperor! Now our heroes need to be able to reverse the spell and stop the rise of Labrum with the help of the reformed Changelings, espeically Gaster, who was shocked and dumbfounded to discover his brothers still lived and would stop at nothing to save them from being Labrum's patsies. How will this end?

Transcript

Chapter 1: Lightning Accused

A week after The Washouts.

  • Hoofville was seen, as Rainbow Dash was seen stomping angerly torwords it.
  • The rest of the Main 7 and the Inter-Racial Students, along with the Crusaders, follow Rainbow cautiously.
  • Applejack: "Rainbow, I understand yer very concerned about what Lightning Dust did, but I think your over reacting."
  • Rainbow Dash: I DON'T UNDERSTAND!!! AFTER EVERYTHING WE'VE BEEN THROUGH, I THOUGHT SHE HAD CHANGED!!!
  • Spike: Maybe it was something she worked with before she became part of the other Elements?
  • Rainbow Dash: Even if that WAS true, she wouldn't be the reckless pony I met, or the one in the forbidden comic we do not speak of.
  • Pinkie: Speaking of which, if we're not bringing that comic in, that tecnecally means that Sombra's canon orgins are also made-up because that comic's connected to it, what would Sombra's fanon origin be-
  • Rainbow Dash: PINKIE, WHAT PART OF "FORBIDDEN COMIC, WE, DO, NOT, SPEAK, OF" DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?!?!?!?!?! GODS!!!!
  • Gallus: I'm confused, there's OTHER Elements of Harmony? (Cozy Glow obviously watched in secret)
  • Twilight:... Yeah, oh my gosh, how long has it been since we last saw them?
  • Pinkie: "Well, apart from some minor involvement in episodes like when Starlight had StarFem or when Man-Vulture Happened, we, kinda barely see them at all! It's as if we fell victim to going onto the next big thing in thanks to things like Season 8 being a powerhouse of ideas, and that of our movie, the producers going too far with pre-established scenes to the point of distraction and that it made production of a previous episode short-lived for it and that they have to vow to not get so carried away from there on, and that SAF kinda started to have trouble remembering continity due to troubled production."
  • Everyone stared confused......
  • Gaster: "..... Ya could've just fucking said that you haven't seen them since the last time you saw them and left it at that?! No need to be so post-modern about it like the lougers?!"
  • Twilight: "That being said, I, I haven't realised that I haven't seen Cousin Midnight in a while. I hope we didn't ended up neglecting her."
  • Gallus: "No seriously, are you gonna answer my question about additional elements or not?!"
  • Rainbow Dash:... During one of our last Grand Galloping Galas, Celestia was searching for ponies to represent 5 artificial Elements of Harmony after saving them and her parents from Taiklar Blackheart's hidden treasury. Don't ask too much about that, it's a LONG, PAINFUL story. Helping Hooves is the Element of Guidance, Sincere Funtime is the Element of Sincerity, Kindheart is the Element of Compassion, Twilight's cousin Midnight Fate is the Element of Faith...... And Lightning Dust is the Element of Courage.
  • Gallus: And you haven't seen them in a long time?
  • Twilight: Like we said, we've been so busy with, well, everything, we forgot.
  • Pinkie: "Not to mention that they actselly would've been helpful in certain events, like with Throx, Magmaticus, The Yakotaur, Our first encounter with Wicked Heart, our first clone problem, Segrego, Maybe the Vi-Tor Situation, The Winger, Our second clone problem, O'Hardknocks, Deadpool DIFFENTLY, and maybe the other adventures involving us prior to this one now."
  • Rarity: "Though it makes one wonder. Maybe Lightning got upset that she was forgotten and is going through a rebelion phase with this being a daredevil stuff?"
  • Rainbow Dash: ".... (Sighs).... Maybe that is a possability..... BUT THAT'S NO EXCUSE TO ENDANGERING SCOOTALOO LIKE THAT?!"
  • Scootaloo: "And, how was what she did with me any different then asking me to kick a storm cloud torwords you during your first Wonderbolt preformice, apart from the obvious?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "I-..... Well, um......"
  • Scootaloo: "Well there ya go! You both commited the act of getting a kid involved in a professionals only event! How was what Lightning did worse then what you did?"
  • Skyceria: "Well, if you want to get tecnecal, there was the whole making you ride in untested hunk of junk that has a risk of painful dishastor."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Duh yeah! What she said!"
  • Gallus: "Look, based on that she's a Daredevil now, she might not even be in Hoofville anyway, so we may as well check out her friends to see how they been doing."
  • Rarity: "Well, I suppose it would do some good to see Lightnings friends first. Besides, they might have some insight on what's going on after all, for they are ponies that Lightning trusts most of all, well, along with Spitfire's brother Acidburn, who I understand came to live here now."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Good idea! Twilight, you go find yer cousin, Applejack, you get Helping, Rarity, you go find one of your obvious expies, (Rarity scoffs unamused of this), Pinkie, go find that speical needs pony! Fluttershy, your with me on going to Lightning's family house! The rest of you.... Duh, Twilight will desdie! (Grabs Fluttershy and zoomed off!)"
  • Twilight: "(Scoffs), I hate it when Rainbow gets like this. Guess I have to deside the rest of the groups."
  • Gallus: "Is professor Egghead always that head-strong?"
  • Smolder: You've known her long enough to know that she is.
  • Gallus:.... Fair point. Let's just get this s*** over with.
  • Twilight: "We REALLY need to work on that cussing, Gallus."

Helping Hooves' Location

  • Helping Hooves: (Reading The Cat in the Hat to several young fillies) "And Sally and I did not know what to say. Should we tell her the things that went on there that day? Should we tell her about it? Now what should we do? Well, what would you do if your mother asked you?"
  • Filly #1: Wow! What a great stowy.
  • Helping Hooves: Yep.... Now for the sequel, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.
  • Filly #2: Wait a junking minute, there was a sequel?
  • Filly #3: I NEVER KNEW THAT!!!!!
  • Helping Hooves: Well, it's a classic case of the original being more famous then the follow-up. That being said, it's your lucky day to learn on what that rascally headwear wearing feline is up to this ti-
  • Applejack: (Barges in) HH!! You need to come right away.
  • Helping Hooves: Applejack! Goodness, it's been too long!... What's it about?
  • Applejack: It's about Lightning Dust... She's had a recent... Relapse.
  • Helping Hooves:... Oh, goodness gracious alive! Um... You got a way to get me a substitute?
  • Applejack: I know a pony.
  • Filly #4: Uh, Miss Helping Hooves? My older sister got angry and screamed when she watched a review of the Cat in the Hat movie by someone called "Nostalgia Critic". Is the movie something WE should be angry about?
  • Helping Hooves:...... Just ask her when you're older. And whatever you do, DON'T watch the movie. The quility of the film is, very misguided and poorly placed, to be polite about.
  • Applejack: "Well a more bluntfully honest way is that IT'S DOWNRIGHT BAD?! Now come on, Help, you got a friend to speak to! (Grabs Helping Hooves and zooms off! The Applejack quickly came back and placed in Starlight as a stand-in)"
  • Starlight: REALLY, APPLEJACK?! JUST BECAUSE I'M THE GUIDENCE COUNSLER, THAT DOESN'T AUTOMATICLY MAKES ME GOOD WITH CHILDRE-...... Oh. Right..... That's kinda what I do in the friendship school.... (Sighs), May as well make the most of it. (Picks up the book) OH HEY, I DIDN'T KNOW THE CAT OF THE HAT HAD A BOOK SEQUEL.... I just hoped Universial Studios also doesn't know about it too, cause that movie WAS A DISHASTOR AREA?! (Starts reading it for the class). "This was no time for play. This was no time for fun. This was no time for games. There was work to be done." (quietly) Pretty much like everyday life. (Continues reading)
  • Helping Hooves: (As they left)... She doesn't know that Dr. Seuss's wife made sure that movie never had a sequel, does she?
  • Applejack: There's more important matters here, HH! COME ON!!!

Sincere Funtime's Location

  • Sincere started laughing like a yuts!
  • Director: Cut, cut, cut, cut, CUT!
  • Angry-Looking Pony: What the hell was wrong with THAT take?!
  • Director: Nothing with you, Mr. Buzzkill. You were great, perfect, better than perfect! It's Sincere, the ADHD must've spread out to her job, 'cuz she keeps blowing her lines! Sincere, what was so funny?
  • Sincere: What? Blunty here was in a bad mood, so I wanted to laugh with the track at his little joke.
  • Director: Laugh with the, laugh with the-.... SON OF A DILPICKLE!! Funtime, read the script! It says, "cue laugh track" right after Blunt's line. You can't laugh WITH the audience!
  • Sincere: "What audience? The laughter is just a recording of a laughing audience. (The Sound Effects guy played the laugh track)."
  • Director: "SERIOUSLY?!"
  • Sound Effects Guy: "I can't help it! It's funny cause it's true!"
  • Director: "(Sighs calming down), And that's why she's one of our prime stars."
  • Blunt Buzzkill: For crying out loud! How in the wide, wide world of Equestria are we gonna finish this damn episode, WHEN I'M SURROUNDED BY INCOMPIDENCE?! BOTH ON THE SET AND OUT OF IT?! ROLL CAMERA, I'll be in my trailer, talking with my wife! (Bumps into Pinkie) Excuse me, toots.
  • Director Roll Camera: (SIghs), Okay people, I think we can all use a break as well. (Leaves with the filming crew)
  • Sincere: (As Pinkie watched) DIRECTOR, I CAN REMEMBER THE LINES, JUST PUT ME IN THE TAKE ONE MORE TIME!
  • Roll Camera: Funtime, darling, we already had put you in the take a hundred times.
  • Sincere: Pretty sure this was the 97th time.
  • Roll Camera: "Okay, hundred ajacent, but still!"
  • Sincere: But I can keep trying, don't worry about me.
  • Roll Camera: Sincere, dear, I know you are a good actress, it's just that that ADHD of yours isn't exactly career friendly, I mean, if I wasn't prepared to work with someone of your mental health when I completely read your resume, I would've just- (Fell down in the hole of the floor with a Wilhelm scream, as crashing was heard)..... PRETTY MUCH THAT, BUT WITHOUT PAIN?!
  • Sincere:... UGGH! Why can't I do ANYTHING right?
  • Pinkie: Sincere?
  • Sincere:... PINKIE!!!! (Hugs her) HOLY GLEEA, it's been so long!!! It's almost like you forgot we existed.
  • (Blunt): AND YOU WOULD KNOW A HELL OF A LOT ABOUT FORGETTING, WOULD YOU, FUNTIME?!
  • Sincere: YOU WEREN'T MEANT TO HEAR THIS CONVERSATION, BLUNT!!!!
  • Pinkie: Though I have to ask... You became an actress?
  • Sincere: Yeah, but I wouldn't nessersarly say I'm, a perfect actress. I keep forgetting my lines.
  • Pinkie: So why stick around?
  • Sincere: Because I'm trying different things like this. I have dozens of day jobs. I- Wait... Why are you here?
  • Pinkie: It's about Lightning Dust. She may need your help.
  • Sincere: What about Lighting?
  • Pinkie: Rainbow Dash tells me she had a relapse.
  • Sincere: Uh-oh. That's never good. Let's get going.
  • Roll Camera: (Off-screen in the hole) Keep in mind that this will count into your break, Miss Sincere! Oh, and while your at it, consider it a nice oppertunity to practice your lines, Ja?
  • Pinkie: I don't really blame you, though. Transitions from comedian to other forms of media are hit-and-miss.
  • Sincere: You usually make it so easy.
  • Pinkie: Not always. Especially when friendship problems are involved. Even more so with the elements! Come on. (They zip off cartoonishly)
  • Roll Camera: "(From the hole)..... And, I just realised that I forgot to ask for help. (Pinkie zoomed back and left a rope ladder for him to climb with and zoomed off)..... THANK YOU!"

Kindheart's Location

  • A pony butler walks over to Kindheart's room.
  • Butler: Miss Kindheart, a maiden from Ponyville requests an audience with you.
  • Kindheart: (From in her room) Curious. I don't recall somepony wanting to see me. I'll be right down.
  • Rarity is waiting in Kindheart's family's foyer, admiring the beauty of it.
  • Rarity: Oh, my. I can understand why Kindheart would have such an upbringing. I surely wish I could live here.
  • Butler: (The butler walks out) Announcing Mademoiselle Kindheart!
  • Kindheart: (Sees Rarity) Rarity, darling! (Runs up to hug her)
  • Rarity: (Hugs her back) So good to see you, Kindheart.
  • Kindheart: What have you been doing with yourself?! I can't even remember the last time we met.
  • Rarity: I've been doing a lot. A, WHOLE, LOT! I just need to tell you that Lightning Dust might have relapsed and needs help.
  • Kindheart:... Oh dear! Please don't tell me she broke up with Acidburn and became a reckless disgrace again.
  • Rarity:.... Which, could explain SOME part of what is going on. But we must find out.
  • Butler: What should I tell your parents and older siblings this time, milady?
  • Kindheart: Tell them I'm visiting a friend. (She and Rarity leave)

Midnight Fate's Location

  • Celestia: Midnight, are you entirely sure you want to take over my royal head spa's place while he's recovering from chicken pox?
  • Luna: As harmful and infectious as they are, glad to know that normal illnesses get a chance to do something in Equestria instead of the 'fantasy' ones.
  • Midnight: I deeply insist, my dear princess of the sun. I'd do anything-
  • Celestia: I know, I know. It's all on your cutie mark. It's just that you haven't been around much. Your cousin has grown so much.
  • Midnight: I know, and I am so proud. I have just been waiting for an opportunity like this for so long. I was there for every celebration including the Festival of Friendship and your play.
  • Celestia:... Y... You were?
  • Midnight: Yes, your highness. But not everypony is born to act. I sure as Tartarus aren't. Have you seen MY school performances? But hey, at last, I can give something to you in return for everything you've done for us.
  • Celestia:... That's very sweet, but, I feel something else might be of concern for you.
  • Midnight: What?
  • Celestia: Well- (Suddenly a knock came from the big doors) Come in!
  • Flash Sentry: (Enters) Presenting, Her Highness, Princess Twilight Sparkle! (Twilight enters)
  • Twilight: Hi, Flash. (Flash blushed as he resisted the urge to giggle frillfully).... Midnight?
  • Midnight: COUSIN TWILIGHT!!!! (The two hugged)... I heard what you've been up to!! I'm so proud of you!!
  • Twilight: Well... That's not what I'm here about. Lightning Dust is... In a bit of a relapse.
  • Midnight:... Oh no. Is she okay?
  • Twilight: I hope so. You know where she lives?
  • Midnight: Of course. But is it not already information you know of?
  • Twilight: Being busy with recent events can make you forget. Come on. (The two trotted off).

Lightning Dust's Home

  • Lightning Dust: Happy Anniversary, Acid! (Gives him a locket with her and him in it)
  • Acidburn:... It's BEAUTIFUL!! (The two hugged and slowly began to make out until Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy came in walking through the clouds)
  • Rainbow Dash: (Bitterly) Is this a bad time? (The two were shocked)
  • Lightning: AW SWEET LUNA ON ICE SKATES, WHO- (Saw Rainbow and Fluttershy) Rainbow Dash? Holy Aericolous, it's been a long-
  • Rainbow Dash: Don't think I've forgotten about that time with Scootaloo, Lightning.
  • Lightning Dust:... (She and Acidburn looked at each other confused)... Da f***?
  • Rainbow Dash: Don't 'Da F***' me! You know what I'm talking about. ABOUT THE STINKING WASHOUTS!!!!
  • Acidburn:... Ya mean those recent stunt ponies that are just a bunch of new-fad buttholes destined to be forgotten a year from now? Me and Lightning never saw them. They're nothing but what I said, a fad desinted to be forgotten, like Friendship Atheism.
  • Rainbow Dash: Uh, hello? Lightning Dust IS part of that new fad!!
  • Lightning Dust:... (She and Acidburn laughed hysterically, of which Rainbow made the face she made when she asked if she looked angry in Tanks for the Memories) Dash, though I admit that I had pipe-dreams about opening up a stunt group, I-..... Although, when I think about it, Washouts' a bit on the f*****g nose there, I would've gone for something like, "The Duster Busters", or, "The Zap-Attacks", or even the "Coolerbolts"! Ahem! Point is, I am pretty sure I am not part of a stunt-pulling daredevil group, even if I don't deny that if it wasn't for me being the Element of Courage, I probably would've done something like it.
  • Acidburn: Somepony's been in the sky too long, huh? (The two laughed)
  • Rainbow Dash:... Changeling check.
  • Lightning Dust: Don't you mean Spy che- (She punched her through endless clouds)
  • Fluttershy: RAINBOW DASH!!! WHAT WAS THAT FOR?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: Remember the procedure for checking for Changelings in disguise?
  • Acidburn: AND WHAT MADE YOU THINK SHE WAS A CHANGELING?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: Maybe it was a Changeling friend.
  • Acidburn: BOTH OF US STILL HAVEN'T WARMED UP TO CHANGELINGS YET!!!
  • Lightning Dust: (Came out with a black eye, and looking beyond pissed off)... WHAT IN THE STINKIEST PITS OF TARTARUS WAS THAT?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: WHERE'S THE REAL LIGHTNING DUST, FAKER?!?
  • Lightning Dust: I AM LIGHTNING DUST!!! WHAT'S GOTTEN INTO YOU?!? IS THIS GONNA BE LIKE THAT S*** YOU PULLED AT THE ACADEMY WHERE YOU INITIALLY GOT ME KICKED OUT?! I MEAN, SERIOUSLY?! ISN'T IT ENOUGH THAT I KILLED (PULLS OUT GRIM-NOR'S SHRUNKEN HEAD) THIS ASSHOLE AND HELPED YOU GUYS DEAL WITH THE GARGOYLES WHERE (POINTS TO ACIDBURN) HE SHOWED UP IN MY LIFE, ALONG WITH SEVERAL OTHER THINGS I AM TOO PISSED OFF TO REMEMBER AT THE MOMENT?! WHY THE SUDDEN S***-GIVING, DASH?!
  • Rainbow Dash: DON'T PLAY DUMB WITH ME!!!
  • Lightning Dust: "JOKES ON YOU, I HAVE TROUBLE LEARNING MATH AND ALGEBRA TO THE POINT THAT I ALWAYS HAVE CONSISTENT D MINUSES!!...... That, was meant to sound more badass in my head! POINT IS, IT WAS MEANT TO SHOW THAT I DON'T PLAY DUMB, I KNOW DUMB?! I CAN BE DUMB ON A LOT OF THINGS?!...... THAT, ALSO SOUNDED WAY BETTER IN MY HEAD?!"
  • Acidburn: "(Rolled his eyes) Ugh, she's trying to say that she's not pulling anyone's leg here!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "OKAY, LISTEN UP, I-"
  • Fluttershy: EVERYPONY, STOP!!!!...... Look, before we cause a scene, let's just get everything out rationally before ONE OF US DOES SOMETHING THEY'LL REGRET!!!
  • Lightning Dust: Well, I'm not going to be very calm, because she just PLOWED ME THROUGH A HUNDRED CLOUDS... Or was it less?... SEE, BAD AT MATH?!..... That sounded more victorious in my head.
  • Acidburn: "Sweetie, maybe try not to think too hard?"
  • Fluttershy: Rainbow Dash? Explain what happened with the Washouts. I think... You MAY be getting the Changeling accusation the other way around.
  • Rainbow Dash:... Hmm... You'd think I would've considered that. (Sighs) Even?
  • Lightning Dust: (The two shook) For now. But you owe me a Wonderbolt fight for this shiner ya gave me! Now, pardon my Pranch, but, THE F***ICORN'S GOING ON?!

French Narrator: One Explanation Later...

  • Lightning Dust: SOMEPONY'S IMPERSONATING ME?!?... Well, like we already established, that phony-baloney WAS NOT ME!! I was with Acidburn the entire time. He noticed the posters and we snubbed them off as another overhyped showoff show like Trixie's.

Dragon Guardiain Temple

  • Trixie was watching her soaps, but suddenly, she looked as if she sensed something....
  • Trixie: ".... I sensed a disturbence in the Trix-force, like, I was compaired to a bunch of cheap-fadders destin for obscurity."
  • (Gilda): "The hell's the Trix-Force? Did the Trix Rabbit became a Jedi in one of those commercials in there? Because I'm PRETTY sure The Last Jedi passed it's premier hype and merchandising."

Lightning Dust's House

  • Acidburn: Though... Should we talk to those 'Rolling Thunder' and 'Short Fuse' guys?
  • Rainbow Dash: Should we NOT talk to them?
  • Acidburn: "Why not? Those two might offer some insight on what's going on, and maybe they know who the imposter is."
  • Rainbow Dash: "WELL THE BEST I KNOWN FROM THEM IS THAT THEY'RE ABUNCH OF WONDERBOLT ACCADMY DROP-OUTS THAT-"
  • Lightning Dust: "Wait wait wait! These wouldn't be the same Short-Fuze and Rolling Thunder, are they? Those two are my new wing ponies in the academy! Those two are great ponies, if abit eccentric, Rolling always obcessed for mindless thrills and Short-Fuze being.... Well, the name speaks for itself. What're those two doing being daredevils? I mean, with Rolling, it's not that big of a stretch, but Short-Fuze comes from a family with too high of expectations for him to suddenly drop being a wonderbolt to be a fad ponies will forget about eventually! They are ALWAYS about being remembered and in the history books! And cheap-thrill seeker fads, don't get recorded in the books, at least, not dedicatedly by the more serious books."
  • Acirdburn: "Well maybe Rolling ended up doing something so unredeemably stupid, it dragged Shorty with her, so NOW they're doing cheap stunts for a living?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "Well that doesn't explain the secondary Lightning Dust! Lightning, you need to be honest with me if your family's keeping a secret evil twin sister from you!"
  • Lightning Dust: "WELL I DOUBT MOM WOULD'VE AVOIDED TELLING ME ABOUT THIS IF THIS SECRET EVIL TWIN GOT OUT?!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "DID MIDNIGHT ACCSIDENTLY CREATED AN EVIL CLONE OF YOU?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "No!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "BROUGHT OUT ANOTHER YOU FROM ANOTHER DIMENTION?!"
  • Lightning Dust: "I think I would've remembered s*** like that?!"
  • Rainbow Dash: ".... Then I'm still gunning for that Changeling s***!"
  • Lightning Dust: "Just don't give me another shiner! I think we can safely say I'm the real dealio!"
  • Fluttershy: "Rainbow Dash, I think we may need to see Rolling Thunder and Short-Fuze at this point! They might offer the best answers now."
  • Rainbow Dash: ".... Ugh! Fine! Let's go find the others! And Lightning, you're coming with me, just to make sure!"
  • Lightning Dust: "Anything to clear my name..... And get insight on how that stunt-team works, this talk might revitalsied my pipe-dream for that-"
  • Acidburn: "Lightning dear, let's please be serious about this."
  • Rainbow Dash: Let's just get our asses to the Academy already.
  • Lightning: "I'll ask mom to tell everyone else where they at if they ended up sticking around in the village."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Good call, Dust."

Chapter 2: Rolling and Short Fuse Interrogated

Wonderbolt Academy

  • Spitfire: Alright, maggots. You ready for your next round?
  • Rolling Thunder: (Saluted) As we'll ever be, ma'am!
  • Short Fuse: Rolls, your starting to get too into this.
  • Spitfire: WELL ONLY-
  • Spitfire/Rolling Thunder: I/YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE/WE'RE READY!!
  • Rolling Thunder: Yeah, you yelled that in our faces a dozen times. We kinda get the idea.
  • Short Fuse: It gets tired and cliché after a while.
  • Spitfire:... Oh wisenheimers, eh? 20 wing-ups, you two! Now!
  • Rolling Thunder: Wait, before or after the next round?
  • Short Fuze: "(Facehoofs) You, idiot."
  • Spitfire: NOOOOOWWWW!!!! (The two did them immediately) That's more like it. I expect them to be done by the next round. And trust me. I WILL know. (Flies away)
  • Short Fuse:... Yeesh, Lightning is right about her nowadays. Spitty's really a gender-bender spittin' image of her dad.
  • Lightning: WHAT'D YOU SAY, MAGGOT?!?
  • Short Fuse: AHHHHH, DOING IT, DOING IT!!!! (Lightning laughed)... NOT, FUNNY, DUSTY BUSTY?!
  • Rolling Thunder: Then why is she laughing?
  • Short Fuze: "Can you NOT?!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Chuckles), It makes me wanna chuckle too."
  • Short Fuse: Said the mare who is now netourious for exposing your position to the Storm King's little horsey Tempest, Rainbow Crash.....
  • Rainbow Dash:... WHAT THE F*** DID YOU JUST SAY TO ME?!
  • Short Fuse: Oh, about the laughter, or about how you almost allowed that Storm King Smuck be able to stop Equestria's only hope cause of an epic act of stupidity!
  • Rainbow Dash: YOU SONOVA-
  • Acidburn: HOLD IT, FILLIES AND GENTLECOLTS?! Let's remember the real dealio reason why we're here.
  • Rainbow Dash: Fine..... (To Short Fuse) But we're not done here!
  • Short Fuse: One who lives in a glass house shouldn't throw stones, gaybo!
  • Rainbow Dash steamed out of her eyes in anger at that!
  • Lightning Dust: Guys... Are you aware of the Washouts?
  • Rolling Thunder: You mean those Wonderbolt dropouts that do crazy-cool stunts for a living and only destined to be a fad?
  • Short Fuse: Oh can you not suck on their c***.... Ish..... They're only gonna be until everyone forgets about them within a year, or if they crash embarrisingly, which I would pay a pretty bit for on Pay-per-view.
  • Rainbow Dash: Even if these 'dropouts' are you two and Lightning Dust?
  • Short Fuse/Rolling Thunder:... Wha?

French Narrator: One Explanation Later... Ugh, I feel like a broken record...

  • Short Fuse:.... (Eye Twitches).... You're telling me, some asses are impersonating us, as the Washouts?
  • Rolling Thunder:...... AWESOME!! I GOT ME A DOPPELGANGER?!
  • Silence.....
  • Rolling Thunder: ".... Wait, is this supposed to be a bad thing, or what?"
  • Short Fuze started to have a major temper fit!
  • Lightning Dust: What I don't get is why? What did we even do to them?
  • Short Fuze: "(EXPLOUDS IN A FURY OF TEMPER) GGGGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH?! AND THERE GOES MY ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES?! (Starts to flip out in the background)"
  • Rolling Thunder:.... Ignor that, he'll be at it for a while. Now, back to this topic: What do we even do, PERIOD?
  • Rainbow Dash: We seem to suspect it's Changelings impersonating you guys.
  • Rolling Thunder: Why the f*** would they do that?
  • Rainbow Dash: Your guess is as f*****g good as ours. There doesn't seem to be many rogue Changelings left out there that we know of, besides Chrysalis and her mom, and even then, there's only like, two of them compaired to the Three Washouts, and Mang's Abomninling thingies aren't exactly super-compident, so that's out.
  • Acidburn: Well even if there were, they'd do better than something as silly as impersonating Lightning Dust, a dunce thrill-seeker, (Points to Rolling Thunder), and Mr. Happy over there. (Short Fuze was seen wreaking stuff)..... What's there to gain from that?
  • Rainbow Dash: Probably love from praising fans to steal. Seems a tad more efficient and subtle than stealing bits. But come on, there's surely better ways than that to get love. Like, I don't know, SHARE IT!!!!
  • Acidburn: Sounds like to me that not all Changelings got the memo that Chrysalis isn't in charge anymore.
  • Lightning: I doubt information like that will be easy to miss. What kind of retard doesn't even notice something like that?
  • Rolling Thunder: Well, news does tend to travel slow in Equestria. Why else did it take ponies a while to take Twilight seriously as a princess in places like Manehatten?
  • Rainbow Dash: Also, I've been around idiots long enough to know to NEVER underestimate their stupidity. Some of them have forgotten important details FOR YEARS!!!
  • Rolling Thunder: Well, take it from me, nobody's THIS stupid.
  • Rainbow Dash: I once fooled a troll into thinking I was somewhere else by saying so... RIGHT IN HIS FACE!!!
  • Rolling Thunder: ".... Well, I'm sure that Changelings are RARELY mental retardation levels of stupid!"
  • Rainbow Dash: And who's to even say that these aren't a collection of mentally defected Changelings doing this? I imagine that Chrysalis didn't ALWAYS have winners in her forces from all that drone breeding she made some changelings do! There's BOUND to be screw-ups!
  • Lightning Dust: Look, we can figure out the reason later. Now we need to do something.
  • ???: Uh, Lightning? (Spitfire came)... There's somepony here to see you.
  • Lightning Dust: Um... Spit, with all due respect, now's not exactly a good time.
  • Spitfire: Well he... Strongly insists.
  • Lightning Dust: Well he should strongly F*** OFF!!! Some jerks are impersonating me, S and R here.
  • Spitfire:... He was strangely talking about that.
  • Lightning Dust: (Surprised)... Ohhhhhh, crap.
  • Rainbow Dash: (Facepalms) Not exactly a glmarious return to the SAF series, Lightning.
  • Lightning Dust: Just bring him in. He should know about- (A gray Pegasus with fire-colored hair burst in)
  • Pony: WELL THEN THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN, LIGHT!!!
  • Lightning Dust:...... No.
  • Short Fuse: (Finally stopped throwing a fit apawn realising what's happening)... No what?
  • Lightning Dust: (Does this while walking through the runway, training areas, and through other hazardous areas pushing out the pony without a scratch while Rainbow Dash and Acidburn reacted in panic in the same fashion as this)

TF2 Analysis "Practically Perfect"

1:38-2:00

  • Lightning Dust: No, no, nononono, NO!!!! (Pushes the pony out) GET, YOUR, FIERY, TAILED, ASS, OUT, OF, HERE, VELOCITY!!!!!
  • Spitfire: LIGHTNING!!! (The others flew in) What was THAT?! Those rookies could've torn you apart.
  • Lightning Dust: Spitfire... With the greatest possible respect here... WHY DID YOU LET THIS SORE ASSWIPE ONTO ACADEMY GROUNDS?!? DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO HE IS?!?
  • Spitfire: He says his name is Velocity Raze. A friend of yours.
  • Lightning Dust: UGGGH, THE MILITARY OF OUR NATION THESE DAYS!!! NO WONDER THE STORM KING TOOK IT OVER SO EASILY!!!
  • Spitfire: "Hey, the royal guard holds EQUAL blame for THAT mess! They weren't even THERE?!"
  • Acidburn: "Well, the Wonderbolts were there in some straids, but, you guys weren't able to really stop the Storm attack."
  • Spitfire: "(Deadpan) Touché, wise-bro. Tou, ché."
  • Lightning Dust: POINT, BEING?! Velocity, IS A BULLY FROM MY FILLYHOOD!!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: "Aw son of a bitch, you had to take s*** from bullies too? I figured the Dust Clan had automatic respect!"
  • Lightning: That's what I thought, too, before I met HIM! Velocity Raze was the meanest, most obnoxious bully in all of Hoofville!
  • Velocity: You're just jealous I had more-
  • Lightning: That's always his excuse, don't take that seriously. There's nothing interesting about him.
  • Velocity: You want to say that to my FACE?!?
  • Lightning: You really want me to?
  • Acidburn: LIGHTNING!!
  • Lightning: FINE, FINE!!! Why are you here?
  • Velocity: "Simple. I'm here to bust the ass of the dropouts that soiled the Wonderbolt name!"
  • Rolling Thunder: "Really? Who?"
  • Velocity: "Looking at them, ya dinguses!"
  • Short Fuse: "...... (Deadpanly to Rolling Thunder) Ya had to asked, did ya dumbo? (Some Academy Security Staff arrived and contained the two, and Lightning)"
  • Lightning: "HEY HEY HEY!? WHAT GIVES?!"
  • Spitfire: "Well, he kinda said that you and these two were the Washouts. And they commited the act of endangering a child in a show."
  • Acidburn: "Whoa whoa whoa, hold up, sis! I had been around Lightning when that happened all day in Hoofville, there's reason to believe that she's being framed, and likely these two chuckleheads as well."
  • Velocity: "Aw come on, Spity, how do ya know he isn't just being a defensive boyfriend?"
  • Spitfire: ".... Because he's my brother, and he has NOTHING to gain to lie to family! (To Acidburn) That being said, creditable as you are, the Wonderbolt Court would end up viewing it as bias since you HAD been dating miss Lightning after all. The best way you can prove her innosence is to find the alledged imposters and take them before the Wonderbolt Brass in the trail."
  • Acidburn: "No probs, sis. We just need to find out their next show."
  • Two passing Wonderbolt rookies were seen looking up a new Washouts Poster.
  • Wonderbolt Rookie 1: "Aw sweet! The new Washouts Spectatular in Las Pegacus is this weekend!"
  • Wonderbolt Rookie 2: "And it's nearly sold-out! We gotta get there!"
  • Spitfire: "ATTEN-HUT, ROOKIES?! (The two rookies freaked out and saluted)..... May I see that poster?"
  • Wonderbolt Rookie 1: "Please don't punish us for this, Ma'am. (Gives the Poster)."
  • Spitfire: "At ease Rookies, you two will be pardoned on counts that you inadvertingly helped in a recent concern."
  • Spitfire went off and gave Rainbow Dash the poster.
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Reads) This saterday in the Grand Deos Statidum in the Resort of the Flimflam Bros, watch the latest sensation to sweep Equestria, the Washouts, preform live as they preform the super-duper tricks that got them in the big time! Expect thrills, expect spills, expect some damage, expect the time of your life. Tickets valuable at the resort, kids get free admitence, get a ticket now and you'll get a free Washout Plushy..... (Speaking) SERIOUSLY?! THEY HAVE ONLY BEEN AROUND FOR A FEW WEEKS AND ALREADY THEY GOT AN ENDORSEMENT DEAL?! AND PREFORMING IN THE FAMOUS GRAND DEOS STATIUM?! THAT WAS ALWAYS MY DREAM?!"
  • Lightning: "THE GRAND DEOS STATIUM?! I DON'T BELIEVE IT?! THOSE LUCKY FAKERS?!"
  • Rolling Thunder: "THEY'RE GIVING OUT PLUSHIES?! I WANT ONE?!"
  • Silence......
  • Short Fuze: "..... You have no freaking brains to speak of, do you Rolls?"
  • Rolling Thunder: If I said yes, would you be surprised?
  • Rainbow Dash: Then we got ourselves a case. We'll bust a cap in their asses quicker than you can say 'Cheers'.
  • Short Fuse: Cheers.
  • Rainbow Dash: MOTHERF-...... Whatever.
  • Lightning: "Let's go meet-up with your friends back at Hoofville."

Hoofville Train Station.

  • The Remain 6 and Additional 5 were seen with the Students at the trainstation.
  • Gallus: "Okay, if we walked to Hoofville from Ponyville, why the need for a train?"
  • Pinkie: "It's for in case we have a whirling adventure in our midst!"
  • Gallus: "As if all the sudden Rainbow Dash of Pepper is suddenly gonna show up and say-"
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Shows up with the others) GUYS, WE'RE GOING TO LAS PEGACUS?!"
  • Gallus: "..... Walked right into that one."
  • Applejack: "Why the sudden interest? The Flimflam Bros. New fancy replacement coaster for Wild Blue Yonder isn't for another few weeks, give or take delays on their part."
  • Spitfire: "It's actselly because of this. (Shows the poster)."
  • Twilight levitates the poster to her person.
  • Twilight: "(Repeats what Rainbow Dash read)...... (Speaks) THEY SERIOUSLY MANAGED TO GET INTO THE LEGENDARY GRAND DEOS STATIUM, BUILDT IN 1902 DURING THE GREAT EQUESTRIAN DEPRESSION?! THEY'VE ONLY BEEN AROUND FOR WEEKS, AND YET, FLIM AND FLAM ALLOWED THEM A STAGE ON ONE OF THE GREATEST STADIUMS EVER BEHIND THE CANTERLOT STATDIUM AND THE CHRISTIAL EMPIRE ARENA?! I MEAN, I KNOW FLIMFLAM AREN'T EXACTLY HONORABLE ABOUT THEIR PRACTICES, BUT WHAT GULL DO THEY HAVE TO SHARE THE GRAND DEOS STATDIUM, TO A PREFORMICE GROUP THAT HAD ONLY BEEN AROUND FOR WEEKS?!"
  • Gallus: "Depends, weren't these the same guys that tried to outcompete Applejack's farm and sell snake oil to injured ponies at some point?"
  • Twilight: "..... (Deadpan) Fair point."
  • Fluttershy: "Oh come now, Twilight, you know they're not really bad guys. They did help me and Applejack stop Gladmane afterall."
  • Twilight: "Obviously only because the fact he was causing a friendship problem and those two saw a chance to swoop in and take away Gladmane's business! If our little insodent with their own "Friendship School" was anything to go by, at the least, they're prohit hungry oppertunists?! I mean, sure, I wouldn't call those two Sombra levels of evil, BUT THEY'RE REALLY PUSHING IT WITH THEIR PROHIT-MAKING SCEAMES?!"
  • Gaster: ".... Are ya still butthurt about how they kinda turned Starbeard against ya?"
  • Twilight: Not just that. They technically committed treason by blackmailing me. You have ANY idea what the penalty is for that?
  • Gaster: No, because I have yet to see it. But hey, you DID blackmail them back.
  • Twilight: You do know that you just answered your own question, right? We agreed to NEVER speak of this loop to each other. We'd both fall if we spoke of it. I lose my credibility and be at worst odds with the EEA, and Gladmane would get his business back for their scam and they'd be in prison for treason. But still, they seriously did not act very courteous.
  • Rarity: Well whatever they're doing to the Grand Deos, they better have learned their lesson.

Chapter 3: Getting to Las Pegasus

Grand Deos Stadium

  • Flim:... You know, I don't get the choice of bad literacy.
  • Flam: Me either. I think they are obviously going for the word, 'Grandiose', but they ended up spelling the word wrong, by they litterally just writing in Grand and Deos togather. It's like, they desided to go for a pun! What's so appealing about that?
Because Poor Literacy Is KEWL!

Because Poor Literacy Is KEWL!

  • Flim:... What was that?
  • Flam: "Oh, must be one of the lougers' jokes. They have a bad hapit of misplacing them. Boys, would you take the Lougers' joke in the lost and found? (Some security proceeded to take the joke to do exactly that). Now there's only the matter of giving the misfits a reason to come here.
  • ???: Well depending on what happens, you might get that soon enough! (Rainbow Dash, Lightning, Twilight and the others came in)
  • Twilight: How are your treasonous scamming butts doing?
  • Flim:... Oh bother, I knew that was gonna come back to hunt us.
  • Flam: "Look, Miss Sparkle, if it helps, it was nothing personal to you, you know how Neighsay and his partner in crime that looks interestingly like Shineflare turned us into pawns!"
  • Twilight: Be that as it may, it doesn't exactly pardon your underminding of my school and nearly besmirching the name of Friendship Schools! I'll say it as many times as I want because what you did was not only attempt to release false information about me, but did it just to keep a stupid scam. And you made the mistake of bringing history's greatest pony into it, and make him look like the gullible fool he wasn't. Your crimes just went beyond sociopathic, which in theroy, would mean that you just brought the threat of never having an honest business again upon yourselves.
  • Applejack: Durn, Twi, will you relax? It's not that big a deal.
  • Twilight: NOT THAT BIG A DEAL?! These two were threatening to vilify the Princess of Friendship with false information just to keep their own false way of living. That's sociopathic and NOT the way of friendship as they were teaching.
  • Flim: "Look, as we said Princess, we were not ourselves that time-"
  • Twilight: Oh be honest, you two! Even if it wasn't for the mind-control in question, be honest, YOU'D TOTALLY WOULD'VE DONE A FOR-PROHIT FRIENDSHIP SCHOOL ON YOUR OWN TERMS, WOULD YOU?!
  • Flam: ".... We'll be honest, we, admit that we would be oppertunist enough to, capitalised on your school's existence. But Neighsay's no-show partner was the one who brought us your archives, miss. We're not sure how she got them, but-"
  • Twilight: You two made me question why the map chose Applejack and Fluttershy to help you two
  • Fluttershy: "That because Gladmane was being a bad pony and compromising friendships for big promises!"
  • Applejack: "Give them this, Twilight, they may had did lowdown things before, but at least they have enough standerds to know that what Gladmane was doing isn't right."
  • Twilight: Well obviously, those standerds WEREN'T HIGH ENOUGH TO KEEP THEM FROM BLACKMAILING PRINCESSES AND MAKE RESPECTED HEROES LOOK LIKE DOPES?!
  • Flam: "T'was nothing personal Miss Sparkle, we were mostly protecting our hides.... Also, even then, we were kinda under a spell."
  • Twilight: EVEN SO?! What you two did, was no better than how Gladmane would've done it.
  • Flim: "Hey in all fairness, Gladmane would've been WAAAAAAAY worse! He would've gotten Celestia involved! At least Starswirl would have no serious power over your school!"
  • Twilight: BUT HE IS THE TEACHER OF CELESTIA, WHO'S SOMEPONY THAT VERY WELL DOES?!
  • Flim and Flam: "..... Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh."
  • Flam: "Okay, we admit that was a BIG whoopsy-dasiy on our parts, ugh, spell aside."
  • Twilight: Keep in mind that equestrian laws are not yet buildt to let spells be used as an excuse! Do you know how their actions would affect you? How it would effect Equestria and beyond? You two were willing to destroy the magic of friendship, AND PR FOR OTHER RACES, OVER A STUPID CON!!!!
  • Applejack:... Wow...
  • Flim:... Gotta be honest, when you phrase it like that, it really does sound very destructive.
  • Flam: "And again, as before, Neighsay's partner was-"
  • Spike: "We get it guys, it was Neighsay's additional sidekick. Look, we'll look into that when we can, for now, just, let Twilight have this."
  • Twilight: But ignoring the deal we made to start no trouble to avoid trouble, and suffer a huge career-destroying penalty, how did you manage to do all of this?
  • Flam: Believe it or not, the Grand Deos statdium has been around since even BEFORE Gladmane's time. It was buildt in the great equestrian depression and modeled as if it was a reminant of anichent Pegacius Civilisation, ya know, back when they had that roman/greek thing going on! Honest truth.
  • Gallus: Really? Because from what I heard, there's usually no honesty with you.
  • Flim: Tch, ironic coming from a griffin. A creature made infamous for their greed.
  • Gallus:... THE F***'D YOU SAY?!
  • Smolder: Okay, you two, can we cheese out of the racial stuff?
  • Flim: "Oh, sorry, I admit that was pushing it abit. But you know what they say about glass houses."
  • Gallus: "Oh-ho-ho! You're saying that just because SOME griffins are greedy as balls, that means I don't have the right to judge you two dipshits?!"
  • Flam: "Now everyone calm down! Now trust me, I mean it about how this building was buildt. We have the papers to prove it. (Brings out legit papers about the stadiums origins) See?"
  • Gallus: "(Looks at it).... Okay, fair enough, this paper's too freaking old to be a forgery."
  • Flim: "This being said.... I kinda have a nagging feeling that you're here for business. Now don't lie, our inner-capitalist will tinkle if your not being honest with us."
  • Lightning: "It's about the Washouts."
  • Flim and Flam realised that Lightning Dust, Short Fuze and Rolling Thunder were out and about with them!
  • Flim: "WHAT THE?!"
  • Flam: "NOW HOLD THE PHONE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN?! What are the Washouts doing outside and not in the stadium just as the show is starting?!"
  • Flim: "Unless..... (Summons a giant flyswatter) CHANGELING CHECK?! (Smacks the trio with it!)"
  • Lightning/Short-Fuze/Rolling Thunder: "D'OWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW?!"
  • Flim lifts the flyswatter off......
  • Flam: "..... I don't think they're turning back into Changelings."
  • Flim: "Well they must be a VERY speical breed to not turn back after a Changeling-Check."
  • Acidburn: "Or, just as much, THEY'RE THE REAL LIGHTNING DUST, SHORT-FUZE AND ROLLING THUNDER?!"
  • Flim: "..... Then...... Who did we just allowed into our stadium before adoring fans?"
  • Spike: "Pretty much, a couple of jerk-holes that managed to con the con artists!"
  • Flam: "....... Wow...... No wonder people get mad at us for when we, erum, fabercate the truth of our products."
  • Twilight: "Not so great being conned yourselves, is it?"
  • Flim: "..... Will it help to be put on better terms with you if we give out backstage passes (Gives some out) Just so you can confront the Washouts without security hassle?"
  • Twilight: "Tch, hardly, (Grabs the passes) But at least you two know when to respect the princess of friendship! (Walks into the backstage)....."
  • Rarity: "..... Try not to take that too personal. She doesn't like it when she is made bad in front of her idols or is greatly embarrised by them. Believe me on that."
  • Gaster: "Oh yeah, it's why she still gives that La Broma guy serious shit. Welp, later, The Super Chrono-Capitalist Brothers."
  • The group entered the staduim.
  • Flim: "..... Brother.....? I think, we may need to do, some more soul scearching then since before we came to own the resort."
  • Flam: "Brother, I do believe your right...."
  • The duo teleported off.

Back Stage

  • Chancellor Wellplay: I'm telling you, something is off about those three. President Vegas, Keeper Grandiose, please, reconsider. They may not nessersarly be the Lightning Dust and friends people know them as.
  • President Vegas: Chancellor, while we will take it easy on you because of your recent hardships, I'm afraid we cannot cancel what has already been prepared for weeks. The Washouts do NOT like having an act go to waste. Neither do their fans, who already paid ODDLES AND ODDLES of money into this event! The refunds from a canceled event like this will be BRUTAL?! Look, I promise that these three are no danger, even if the track record's abit inconsistent.
  • Keeper Grandiose: Exactly. So please leave.
  • President Vegas: Grandiose! That is NOT how you end a conversation like this. That is rude and unprofessional.
  • Keeper Grandiose: "I can't help it that it was about time people came to this old stadium, even if for a silly modern fad that'll be forgotten eventually, I'm just glad the stadium finally got to see action ever since the Christail Empire and it's arena came back! I'm just glad the old girl got some action again!
  • President Vegas: Looking after your family's stadium and this city's oldest attraction, while understandable, is NO excuse for rudeness, Grandiose. Chancellor, if you still wish to believe that there be foulplay involved, I must humbly ask that you look into this with somepony else. We have enough on our plates as it is.
  • Chancellor Wellplay:.... (Sighs) Fine. But you two owe me a lifetime pass to all resorts if I end up right about this! (Heads out) Blast!
  • Eightball: (With Hidden Shadow and holding cotton candy) Something wrong Dad?
  • Chancellor Wellplay: Son, change of plans. We won't be attending the show.
  • Eightball: What?! Why not?! Me and Hidden were looking forword to this show since the posters were first placed up!
  • Chancellor Wellplay: Because the Lightning Dust out there is NOT Lightning Dust. She's not this kind of pony anymore. And say that she may've thought of being like this before in her life, her newfound path as the Element of Courage contridicts this kinda behavior! Also, I have good reason to believe that Short-Fuze and Rolling Thunder did not became drop-outs! I should know! I sometimes visit the Wonderbolt academy and I still see those two around! I'm telling you, there could be impostery afoot!
  • Hidden: Mister Wellplay, um, are you sure you want to go through with that? I've been planning on this outing for a while. Plus, my dad does not appreciate wasted outings.
  • Pred's voice: "BLOODLY WHACK-A-DRAGON-MOLE, (Pred was seen playing a dragonised Whack-A-Mole), I'M USUALLY GOOD AT THESE BLOODLY THINGS?!"
  • Hidden: "..... Even more so after a bad game of Whack-A-Dragon-Mole."
  • Eightball: "Also, I kinda doubt these are even the same Lightning Dust, Rolling Thunder and Short-Fuze. Sometimes we can have ponies that look exactly like another pony but they are not. For all we know, maybe this is actselly a different Lightning Dust."
  • Wellplay: "Then explain to me why they CLAIM to be the exact individuals!"
  • Eightball: "Obviously as a means to claim to someone else's fame to make up your own. Daredevils do that s*** all the time, like, the Daughters of Celestia, those actrobatic mares from the asian lands that claimed themselves to be Celestia's daughters because their act resolves around the Sun!"
  • Hidden: "Or the Sons of Luna, those monster truck guys that do crazy s*** in night rallies."
  • Eightball: "And don't get me started on the Cragadile Wrestler Bloodlight Sprinkler, a pony that wrote herself as the daughter of Twilight! And we all know that she and Flash didn't tie the knot yet if ya know what I mean! Point is, these kinda people leech off to someone else's fame all the time, it's just a matter until they can make stake to their own identity!"
  • Wellplay: "(Sighs), Et tu, my son? Et tu?"
  • Eightball: "(Sigh), Look, dad, I don't mean to be against you on this, I just need a little more proof then your gut-feelings to really see this."
  • Wellplay: "..... (Sighs), Okay, go ahead and have fun with Miss Hidden and her adopted kin. But you owe me a lot of gambling nights if I am right!"
  • Eightball: "Fair enough, and trust me, I have a safe bet that your being worried over nothing. (Starts walking off with Hidden) Come on, Hid, let's go find your sisters before one of them does something stupid."
  • Chain's voice: "WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?! I AM THE PINK CLOUD PRINCESS?!"
  • Sharp-Pay's voice: "DAMN IT CHAIN, GET OUT OF THE COTTON-CANDY MACHINE?!"
  • Axe-Rella's voice: "AND YOU SAID YOU HAD THIS, SHARP-PAY?!"
  • Eightball: ".... Like JUST now! (He and Hidden trotted off)!"
  • Wellplay: "..... (Sighs), Don't ya hate it when the young people don't listen to their elders?"
  • ???: I know, right? (The pony heroines arrived)... Hello, Chancellor.
  • Wellplay: Ah, Princess Twilight! (Kneels before Twilight) To what do I owe this pleasure?
  • Twilight: We must talk to the Washouts about... Something. (The real three appeared)
  • Wellplay:... FINALLY, SOMEPONY AGREES WITH ME!!! I KNEW those Washouts were fakers!
  • Lightning Dust: "Yeah, and lucky ones at that! They got to preform in THE Grand Deos Stadium?! That was a place even my grandfather dreamed to preformed to one day, bless his soul."
  • Wellplay: "Well, now we both have a new problem: Outside of you three, how are we gonna show to ponies that the ones out are imposters?"
  • Gallus: "Well we're kinda betting on that they're abunch of REALLY dumb rogue Changelings."
  • Smolder: "Yeah, dumb, but lucky. Till now."
  • Wellplay: "No kidding. Even President Vegas and Keeper Grandiose ended up buying that act. Heck, my own dang son just assumed that they were just abunch of look-a-likes clinging to Lighting's fame."
  • Short-Fuze: "Yikes. For a E.E.A. agent, that's pretty stupid of him."
  • Wellplay: "Hey watch it, that's my son your talking about."
  • Short-Fuze: "I'm just saying that you would think a trained agent would know better, ya know?"
  • Wellplay: He may be plagued with luck, but he's not plagued with brains.
  • Pinkie: Ewww, sounds nasty.
  • Wellplay: "I meant in that he isn't a rocket sciencetist about all this."
  • Pinkie: ".... Oh."
  • Rolling Thunder: Uh, well clearly YOU aren't. The answer's obvious. The three of us just come up to the imposters and say-
  • ???: END THE CHARADE NOW, BROTHER!!! (Two pony civilians revealed themselves as Spiracle and Vertex)
  • Lightning Dust: "WHAT THE F***APUS?!"
  • Rolling Thunder: "WHOA THAT WAS SPONTATIOUS?!..... I LIKE IT?!"
  • Short-Fuze facehoofed groaning!
  • Twilight: Spiracle? Vertex?
  • Spiracle/Vertex:... Your highness?
  • Sincere: Cupcakes! (Silence)...... What?
  • Twilight: What are you two doing here?
  • Spiracle:...... Oh...... So I suppose..... Those three are not my brother and some new cohorts.
  • Vertex: Yeah, we Changelings aren't the best at Changeling-Checking. How ironically cruel is that?
  • Rarity: Very, VERY, cruelly ironic.
  • Lightning Dust: Damn right. Although.... Now that I think of it... Who are you both, how does Twilight know you, and what do you mean brother?
  • Spiracle: Well, formalities first. I am Spiracle, once elder of King Seta's Hibernation Temple, and this is my assistant Vertex. We are teachers of culture at Twilight's School of Friendship.
  • All Other Elements Except Midnight: SCHOOL OF FRIENDSHIP?!?
  • Lightning: When did Twilight open a freaking SCHOOL?!?
  • Rarity: "Darlings, we have, SO much, to catch up on after this."
  • Midnight: "Like you wouldn't believe."
  • Twilight: We'll explain later. Now I need to back up Lightning's last question: What do you mean by 'brother'?
  • Spiracle:... (Sighs) I'm afraid that this is a private family matter-
  • Vertex: He believes-
  • Spiracle: Vertex, don't you DARE tell them.
  • Vertex: Why not? They're looking for them, too. There's no reason not to tell them.
  • Spiracle: We're supposed to fix this quietly. Or at least we were before you wasted time with an errand that could've been done afterward. Now those bastards caught the attention we were meant to avoid.
  • Vertex: WILL YOU STOP BLAMING ME?!
  • Spiracle: VERTEX! Do not talk to me like that!
  • Twilight: No, she's right. Spiracle, both as a Princess of Friendship, AND tecnecally your boss as the school's headmare/founder, I demand to know what's going on!
  • Spiracle: Your highness, with all due respect, this is not your business. It's mine, and mine only.
  • Rainbow Dash: WHO ARE YOU TO TELL OUR FRIEND AND THE PRINCESS OF FRIENDSHIP WHAT TO DO?! THIS ISN'T ALL ABOUT YOU, BUG!!
  • Spiracle: "Okay, can you please not get racial about this? We could barely deal being called "Bug-Horses" as it is. Just straight-up calling us "Bugs" is just offensive."
  • Rainbow Dash: "SORRY, I'M JUST IN A BAD MOOD AFTER I ENDED UP BLAMING THE REAL LIGHTNING DUST FOR SOMETHING A FAKER DID?!"
  • Spiracle: "Woo! And it shows!"
  • Ocellus: "Mr. Spiracle, please. We're all friends here. We just as much want to resolve this as you do. These imposters are going to risk Lightning's reputation as the Element of Courage pretending to be a bunch of rude daredevils."
  • Short-Fuze: "Alongside two rookie Wonderbolt casualties, in moi, and Rolling Dunce here."
  • Rolling: "My cousin's here? Dang it, I told her not to follow me without Aunt Rolling Pin?!"
  • Silence......
  • Applejack: ".... The lights ain't all on up in her attic, are they?"
  • Short-Fuze: "What was your first clue, Cowmare?"
  • Ocellus: "Please Mr. Spiracle. (Turns into a kitten and gives a sad face and mews)."
  • Spiracle: ".... D'owwww..... I don't have the heart to refuse a face like that. Oh how fickle the gift of shape-swifting can be. Very well, I'll explain along the way into the stage. Follow us."

  • Announcer: "PRESENTING, NOW FOR ALL OF LAS PEGACIUS TO ENJOY, THE WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTS?!"

This music played as the Washouts drove out on motorcycles!

  • The Audience cheered!
  • "Lightning Dust": "YOU CAN CHEER BETTER THEN THAT?! LOUDER?!"
  • The Audience Cheered roariously!
  • "Lightning Dust": "LOUUUUUUUDDDDDDDDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR?!"
  • The Audience Cheered so loud, it was heard from space!
  • "Lightning Dust" chuckled wickedly and quietly at the applase.
  • "Rolling Thunder": "You have these guys eating out of your hooves, boss!"
  • "Short-Fuze": "Quiet, stupid?! The boss is consintraighting!"
  • Inisde the helmit, "Lightning Dust"'s eyes were seen glowing as "She" was absorbing the love.
  • ???: END THE CHARADE NOW, BROTHER!!! (The heroes arrived)
  • "Short Fuse": WHAT THE F-?!?
  • "Lightning Dust": (Reckinidses Spiracle) YOU?!.... Duh, I mean, WHO THE BUCK ARE YOU GUYS?!?
  • Rainbow Dash: Hello, "Lightning Dust". Been a while. I got a friend I'd like you to meet. Meet, Lightning Dust. (The real three came out surprising the entire crowd)
  • "Short-Fuze": "..... (Quietly to "Lightning Dust") Boss, we got a problem."
  • "Lightning Dust": (Quietly to "Short-Fuze") Let me handle this, idiot!... (Laughs openly) You Changelings are a riot. But I do NOT appreciate being interrupted. (To a mic) CAN WE GET SECURITY ON THE PREMISES?!
  • Spiracle: Don't try to shy out of this... LABRUM!!
  • "Lightning Dust": (Gets nervious) Labrum? Who's Labrum?
  • Twilight: Why don't you tell us? Changeling check.
  • "Rolling Thunder": Don't you mean Spy che- (Twilight took out the same potion used by Zecora in the Changeling reality and combined it with a spell that temporarily disabled their magic and exposed them as three unreformed Changelings, one having black-green skin and large mandibles, and the other two being familiar, surprising the crowd more)
  • Gaster looked espeically surprised!
  • Gaster:......... I...... I... It can't be!... CASTER?! BUSTER?! YOU'RE STILL ALIVE?!... AND CURED?!?
  • Buster: Who wants ta know, color-boy- (Gets a good look at Gaster)... Wait a sec...... Gaster?! YOU'RE ONE OF THE COLORS NOW?!?
  • Ocellus: "(To the other inter-racial stundets) "Colors" being the unreformed changeling term for reformed Changelings."
  • Skyceria: "Kinda not hard for us to guess why."
  • Caster: Awwww gees, Gast, I neva thought you would become one of them?! I mean, I know Chrysalis tends to be a bitch, but, dude, you look so, so.... UUUGH, IT'S DISGUSTING!!!! I can barely look at ya!
  • Gaster: Oh, hey Kettle, name's Pot, have we met?
  • Caster: "Ugh, yup. You're Gaster allright. Aw gees, what happened to ya!"
  • Gaster: "Blame Chryly-Billy for booting me out for not returning that elf-wizard's petrifived tapeworm thing!"
  • Buster: "Yeah, to be fair Cast, Chrysalis was kinda a big stinker about everything, so-"
  • Caster: "Hey, be that as it may, it's still an embarrising thought of you becomin' a color, Gast!"
  • Gaster: "Hey, it ain't like the whole dark black thing's that appealing neither, fellas! At least the ponies LIKE the reformed forms!"
  • Buster/Caster: "THAT'S THE PROBLEM?!"
  • Caster: "The idea of these forms is to be as fierce as.... Him, in the underground?! Otherwise, if we adopted those bright sissy colors, then we'd be no match here?!"
  • Gaster: "Okay wise-guys, I'll have you know that-"
  • Labrum: Oh cease your stockholm defence of the color forms, boy. They're right. You, Brother Spiracle, are disgusting.
  • Gallus: NOT AS MUCH AS YOU, BUG!!! I mean, those mouth-manables are such an EYE-SORE?!
  • Labrum: (Ignors Gallus to look at Spiracle).... You couldn't leave well enough alone, could you, brother? You were always a PAINFULLY persistent pest. Even more then flies.
  • Spiracle: You know well enough why I couldn't leave you be. You are still a danger to our changed ways. I couldn't let you roam free and do whatever you want. And I won't.
  • Labrum: "How disterbingly noble of you. A pity though that you're abit too late. I have already obsorbed all the love and aberation from the Washouts' fans I need for a spiecal and anichent Changeling Spell. One, that'll garrentie me the new emperor of a new hive of Changelings! I felt that both Chrysalis and even Throx have lost their way without the old hive, so it'll be have to be up to me to avenge our ansisteral home from the beast that usurped Changeling Soverenty! And this spell, will secure that?!"
  • Spiracle: ".... You wouldn't!"
  • Yona: "Un, depends, what exactly is he talking about?"
  • Ocellus: ".... Uh oh. He means..... The Changeling Transmutantion Spell."
  • Labrum: "Well, so I guess that silly friendship school does have it's merits. But allow me to explain.... Better yet.... I THINK A LIVE DEMINSTRAIGHTION WOULD OFFER A GRANDER LEARNING EXSPEARIENCE?! (His horn began to glow a dark green as he began citing an incantation.)"
  • Spiracle: "QUICK?! DON'T LET HIM FINISH THAT INCANTA-"
  • Buster and Caster bodyslammed Spiracle!
  • Buster/Caster: "CHANGELING PILE?!"
  • Gaster: "HEY JACKASSES, WHY NOT LET THIS BE BETWEEN BROS, HUH?! (The three began to fight!)"
  • The Others tried to stop the spell, but Labrum flew out of reach!
  • Labrum: You're too late! You can't stop what's coming! In fact, be assured.... (Music started to played)..... It was a foregone concludtion.
  • Gallus: "Oh dear Griffin Lords, he's not gonna start singing is he- 

Labrum began to sing his song, dodging the heroes attempt to stop him, as Caster and Buster joined it from time to time, as by song climax, he casted the spell, blinded the intervening heroes as he cast the spell on the entire crowd, turning them into impure Changelings...

My Lullaby (Darker Version)

My Lullaby (Darker Version)

  • Ocellus: HOLY CRAP IN AN OOTHECA!!!!
  • Twilight:... WHAT DID YOU DO?!?
  • Labrum: What does it look like, you needless position for all of kinship? All the people that saw our show are one of us now. They are the first of a new Changeling kingdom. One that will build over Equestria and finish where Chrysalis and her mother started, only do it BETTER!
  • Twilight: YOU CHANGE THEM BACK IMMEDIATELY!!!
  • Labrum: Tch, oh please. I have no need to listen to you. What made you think I'll do what some false Princess of a concept that belongs in clichés and toddlers' cartoons says?
  • Gallus: YEAH, WHY?!? DUMBASS!!!
  • Silverstream: Gallus, stay out of it! And ease up on the racism!
  • Gallus: (Mockingly) "GALLUS, STAY OUT OF IT, AND EASE UP ON THE RACISM!" That's you.
  • Labrum: You have desecrated our race's true goals for the last time, your unfriendliness! You and your race must thus pay by becoming one of us.
  • Twilight: That's not going to happen!!
  • Labrum: You can WATCH it happen. Changelings are not MEANT to share love.
  • Spiracle: Things change, Labrum! Stealing love isn't acceptable anymore. Chrysalis lied to her own people. The people who trusted her. She made them think love was finite and that loving each other was cannibalism. That was barbaric and far from right.
  • Labrum: I don't listen to you anymore, brother. You're a filthy Color now. And I do NOT fraternize with your kind. The kind that Destiny the fallen child wants. This is going down, and YOU ALL WILL NOT STOP ME!!! (The Changelingified ponies attack in numbers and trap them in adhesive green slime)... Farewell. (They flew away)
  • Gallus:... THAT SON OF A TYRANT BITCH!!!!
  • Gaster stared as his brothers left.....
  • Gaster: "..... Just my luck."
I Stand Alone Reprise ENGLISH - The Quest for Camelot

I Stand Alone Reprise ENGLISH - The Quest for Camelot

Gaster's chances at a brotherly reunion, shattered.

  • Gaster: I don't understand. I find out my brothers are alive, but they don't even see me. Not as a brother... not as a Changeling... not as anything.
  • Starlight: ".... Gaster, if it could make you feel better, that's only the unreformed mentality talking. They've only yet to fully understand."
  • Gaster: "Tch, good luck ever convincing THOSE two! Caster's a total smart-ass who thinks he has life figured out, and Buster has the oppisite problem is that he's almost stupid enough to forget how to breathe!"
  • Starlight: Well it couldn't help to start, by GETTING US OUT OF THIS SLIME!!!! (They were struggling as Gaster shrugged)

Later...

  • The group were freed eventually.
  • President Vegas arrived.
  • President Vegas: "WHAT IN THE DIDDLY LONG DAY JUST HAPPENED?! I booked for a Washouts preformice and got a sudden Changeling takeover of Las Pegasus! Would somepony like to explain to me what went down in Grand Deos Stadium?!"
  • Wellplay: Well let me put it this way:... I TOLD YA SOOOO!!!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: The Washouts were Changelings impersonating these three.
  • President Vegas: Is that so? I mean, sure the Changelings are friends to us ponies, but--
  • Applejack: Unreformed Changelings.
  • President Vegas:... Oh. I should've known.
  • Wellplay: (Mockingly) "OH, I SHOULD'VE KNOWN." That's you.
  • President Vegas: Yes, I know I should've-
  • Wellplay: (Mockingly) "YES, I KNOW I SHOULD'VE-"
  • President Vegas: WILL YOU STOP MOCKING AND TELL ME HOW YOU PROPOSE WE SOLVE THIS PROBLEM?!
  • Smolder: "Well OBVIOUSLY we stop that Asswipe La-bum from making Changelings look bad again!"
  • Spiracle: "That much is easier said then done. Labrum sounded determined in his madness to become an emperor of changelings. And with an army of Changeling Hybrids at his disposeal, he would be unstoppable."
  • ???: I, AM, SO, MAD!!! (Suddenly, Chrysalis barges in)
  • Twilight: Queen Chrysalis?!
  • Gaster: "OH SURE, NO BAD CHANGELING PARTY IS COMPLETE WITHOUT THE QUEEN OF BITCHES HERE!!"
  • Chrysalis: "HEY, BE LUCKY THAT I DESIDED THAT IMPUDENT OLD FART OF A BUG HORSE IS MORE WORTHY OF MY WRATH OUTSIDE OF STARLIGHT?! SPEAKING OF WHICH, SAME GOES TO YOU, BITCH?! (Points to Starlight angerly)."
  • Rainbow Dash: What are YOU doing here?!
  • Chrysalis: I get ready for a date night with Mang, then I hear from one of my drones that Labrum was planning to overthrow the Changelings! I'M the only Queen of True Changelings here, and like I told Thorax, no drone is going to overthrow me! Granted, he was lucky, but I draw the line at reviving the evil in Changelings without MY authority! Hell, he should consider himself LUCKY we in the Villain League are used to original characters stealing our songs, which in this case is Zira!
  • Mang showed up as well.
  • Cobra: "Aw come on, Chrly, you know this isn't any of our business. Besides, that evil clone fiasco take two still burns rather recently and our presence in a latest fiasco involving your mother's appearent temple care-taker is sort've, a last thing they want right now, and- (Throx appeared behind him and intimidated Mang) EEK?!"
  • Throx: "Ya know, Snake boy, if you're afraid of having needless League invovlement, then me and Chrysalis will say that we're not doing this for them, you cowerdly worm! We're doing it for our good names, because that lout Labrum owes me BIG for not being a big help for my return, never mind that he left me defenceless and my Hibernation Temple in sheer neglect! Now, kindly go back to that little hovel you call a fortress."
  • Cobra: ".... (Wimpfully) Yes Ma'am. (Teleports away)."
  • Gallus: "..... And that's why I am not looking forword to ever having a mother-in-law someday when I score a babe of my own."
  • Chrysalis: "Okay, let's get down to business... I know some of you aren't exactly thrilled to see the two of us, and the feeling is mutual, F.Y.I., so I propose a relucent allience against that Labrum basturd?!"
  • Pinkie: "Well, tecnecally, only the Lougers can approve of any relucent allienceses with the bad guys, so-"
  • Chrysalis: "THEN FOR PETE'S SAKE, GET THEM DOWN HERE ALREADY, YOU PINK-BRAINED IDIOT!!"
  • Throx: "Chrysalis! Where is your sense of diplomacy at the face of those with a mutual enemy at hand?!"
  • Chrysalis: "WELL EXCUSE ME FOR BEING IN A BAD MOOD ABOUT LABRUM'S ASSHOLERY?!"
  • Twilight: Well, even if we do get the Lodge to agree to an alliance, you'll have to keep in mind that they'll be watching you two.
  • Rainbow Dash: Like hawks.
  • Throx:... Very well.
  • Twilight: Plus, I'm not really sure if my communications computer is fully repaired after Deadpool destroyed it.
  • Chrysalis: THAT crazy lunatic? UUGH!! As if I'd have the nerve to ask how he's doing these days.
  • Rainbow Dash: "Being a general jackass that pooped his metaphorical s*** all over the school, for starters."
  • Throx: "So I guess they need to be contacted by, other means."
  • Chrysalis: "Well it can't be through Celestia's computer?! That bitch has it OUT for me?!"
  • Gallus: "Wait..... Can't you two just ask Mang to do it?"
  • Silence....
  • Throx/Chrysalis: "..... Be right back. (The two teleported off)"
  • Gaster: "..... Please don't tell me we're seriously having those two grubheads involved."
  • Ocellus: "Gaster, I know you don't exactly like Chrysalis, but..... We kinda have no choice. Like Throx said, Labrum is a problem to the both of us."
  • Gaster: "You guys realize they're only involved for personal payback for his ditching ass and not nessersarly to actselly help Equestria?! If anything, if we ain't careful, those two would simply usurp La-Butt for their own gain?!"
  • Spiracle: "I understand the risk of a would-be poison allience..... But, my brother is too powerful now. Throx knows Labrum as well as I do."
  • Gaster: ".... Ugh.... Fine?! BUT YOU BETTER MAKE THOSE C**TS PROMISE NOT TO PULL ANYTHING CUTE?!"
  • Spiracle: They make no promises. Trust me.
  • Gaster: Less talk, more call!

The Flimflam Resort.

  • It is now crawling with Changelingafived Ponies filling everything up with slime, as Labrum marveled at his work.
  • Buster: "Gee, boss, your awfully quick to just take over an entire gambling city the minute ya got an army. Most people would've retreated into a lair by now."
  • Labrum: "I already did enough hiding in Throx's Temple. Now, I am turning this silly bedrock of gambling sin, into my new kingdom! A Changeling Kingdom! A more absolute and brave kingdom!? The problem with Changelings even after Throx came to be is that we still hid from plain sight! What better way to make ponies reckindised our power, is if we take over one of their precious cities, and turn some of their citizens, into one of us?!"
  • Caster: "Abit bold and risky, but, it's very decidsive!"
  • Labrum: "And these ponies, even the Alicorns, will come to fear and respect these bold actions!"
  • Flim and Flam were brought to Labrum by some converted security ponies now Changelings.
  • Flam: "Boys, please don't take us closer to the scary manabled Changeling, or no Heath's Warming Bonus this year!"
  • Converted Guard 1: "WE NO LONGER CARE FOR WEALTH, PONY?!"
  • Flim: "We were afraid you'd say that."
  • Labrum: ".... Are these the last ponies in miles of the city?"
  • Converted Guard 2: "Yes sir. They were hiding in their office, wallowing in disgusting pity on their money."
  • Labrum: "Ugh, and I thought Griffins were obcessed with wealth."
  • Flam: "Please, don't hurt us?! We'll sing and dance for ya, anything, just don't hurt us?!"
  • Labrum: "Oh don't get me wrong, what sense would there be if I harmed my future workers that'll cater to me at my every whim?"
  • Flim: "..... I think I liked it better when we thought he was gonna do bad things to us."
  • Labrum: No, I just can't stand you two as ponies. You two must be converted first.
  • Flim: "Aw come on?! What's your problem with Ponies anyway?"
  • Labrum: "Actselly, this is nothing personal. Not just to you two, but to your entire race. This is only being done because the Changelings already learned a harsh lesson. That the best way to survive, is to become absolute, and congure the weak! And you ponies.... You made the mistake of letting your religen make you soft to the horrors of the REAL world beyond the seltered lands of Equestria! You only had a small glimse from the short-lived madness of The Storm King..... But this time, I'll make sure you'll see reality at a much more, harder to get rid of scale!"
  • Labrum started to use the incantation again as Flim and Flam wimper, as green magic engulfed the two!

Meanwhile, in Canterlot...

  • Celestia: Say what?!
  • Chrysalis: I said, I wasn't anywhere near Las Pegasus when I found out that a former elder Changeling of mother's was impersonating Lightning Dust, and now I need to make a temporary alliance with your student in order to stop him from taking over Equestria!
  • Celestia: That's what I thought you said..... And, your positive Labrum is not an assusiate of yours still?
  • Chrysalis: "WELL HOW'S ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE WASN'T AROUND WHEN MOTHER CAME BACK, PRINCESS SUNBUTT?!"
  • Celestia: ".... Actselly, I, was curious to why the Good Changelings had an Elder to take care of King Seta while your mother was virtually alone."
  • Throx: "Well consider your curiosity answered. And be assured, if Labrum was still with us, do you not find it odd we're even asking this?"
  • Luna: "Well excuse us for figuring that this is tecnecally something you two would benefit from! Labrum is going out to make Changelings look like monsters again!"
  • Throx: "Oh trust me. Labrum is doing this on his own whims. He lost faith in me and my daughter thanks to me hibernating and Chrysalis NOT EXACTLY DOING A GOOD JOB GETTING EQUESTRIA'S CONQUEST DONE?! Be assured that this isn't a matter the League's involved with, in thanks to my daughter's wimpy little noodle-limped serpent boyfriend being afraid that you people would still be scorned with the last fiasco."
  • Shining Armor and some Guards were seen cautiously behind them, with Flash Magnus and Flash Sentry present.
  • Thorx: "(Looks at the gaurds)..... Though I won't exactly say he's wrong about it. By all means, nothing between us needs to change, just keep in mind that we BOTH have a mutual foe in Labrum, and that I am offering two free powerful allies against a powerful adversary. He is wronging the both of us. He just congured one of your cities, and he's doing it while undermining me and my daughter's athority in deeming us weak as he proclaims himself a new Emperor. Surely you understand how dangerious that rebelious old coot is. And I'm sure you don't wanna risk him becoming powerful enough to have that spell of his effect Ponies of a nation-wide scale."
  • Celestia: Begrudgingly, your right. I do not wish to have all of Equestria turned into Changelings.
  • Gaster: Eh, a Changelingified Equestria doesn't sound THAT bad. Apart from a brother-stealing d*** as ruler, but eh, we're used to d*** rulers at this point. You ponies can still retain your former forms. It's in the name.
  • Ocellus: Gaster, technicalities don't matter. Nopony wants to be one of us, pure or impure. It won't be easy for ponies to cope with such a radical change. Labrum needs to be stopped.
  • Chrysalis: Well, I kinda have to side with the failure abit. If you WERE to fail, you could always shapeshift into your previous forms.
  • Gaster: "..... On second thought Ocellus, yer right, this is gonna suck."
  • Chrysalis: "BAH?! Seriously?! You change your stance because I agreed with you?!"
  • Silverstream: "Well ya did sort've, exiled him, so, he's, not exactly thrilled your here."
  • Rainbow Dash: Besides, you don't get to decide or agree with anything, you're still a bad guy.... Or girl.
  • Chrysalis: Watch your tongue, pony! I am helping you this one time and it would be appreciated if you didn't TEMPT ME!!
  • Throx: Calm yourself, daughter. We have work to do. So, the Changelings have been assimilating Las Pegasus. The hive should be forming about... (A tremor was heard as a new hive appeared in Las Pegasus' location)... Now.
  • Gaster: HYPOGEAN'S BOULDERS!!!! It's HUGE!!!! Me thinks it's shaming Chrysalis' and/or Thorax.
  • Chrysalis: My hive was much bigger than THAT when it was initially built from that core stone that sporuted from the ground that my throwne was made out of. Time wears things down.
  • Gaster: Still. At least he isn't compensating for his-
  • Spiracle: I think it won't be long before Labrum sends in his poor victims to invade.
  • Fluttershy: "Why are those ponies, Changelings, Changeys, even doing this with him?"
  • Spiracle: "It's pretty much the effect of being a bad changeling. The hunger for love drives them to have a perverted moral compuss and prone to do terrorable things. The effect has likely taken over them the minute they were turned into Changelings."
  • Throx: "Uh, quick question, who's the new Changeling kid?"
  • Applebloom: "Huh? What new Chang- (The duo realised that Scootaloo was now a Changeling) BAAHAAAAAAAAA?!"
  • Sweetie Belle: "EEEEEEEEEK?!"
  • Scootaloo: "The f***'s a matter with you losers?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "DAH?! SCOOTS?! YOUR A CHANGELING NOW?!"
  • Rolling Thunder: "RADICAL?!"
  • Silence.....
  • Rolling Thunder: "...... Wait, this suppose to be a bad thing?"
  • Scootaloo: "The f*** are you asshats talking about?"
  • Twilight: "Uh, Scootaloo? Try, looking down at the floor."
  • Scootaloo: "Oh sure, cause it looks like this s*** got waxed and- (Saw her Changeling form) GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH, WHAT THE F***ERY F***ITY F***Y F***?! I'M A FREAKING BUG-HORSE NOW?!"
  • Applejack: Yeesh, did your new biology increase your profanity impulse?
  • Rainbow Dash: "HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!"
  • Throx: "Simple. Did Miss Scootaloo ever admited fondness for Labrum's "Washouts" Shenanigans?"
  • Gallus: "She started a one-member fan club for them."
  • Throx: "Well there you go. Poor child had her admiraiton made her apart of the spell's effect."
  • Scootaloo: "BUT I STOPPED LIKING THOSE HACKS?!"
  • Chrysalis: "Well this is the delciously devious part of the spell! It doesn't matter if you stopped loving the Changeling who can weild it! All the spell needs was the existence of that love, and it's still going to effect you!"
  • Shore: "But she was fine at the stadium!"
  • Thorx: "It's been said that if you had rejected the spell caster prior to that spell being cast after having loved them, the effect will just start to move.... Slowly."
  • Scootaloo: "SERIOUSLY?! I GIVE ONE FAN CLUB TO A GANG OF IMPOSTERS, AND I GET TURNED INTO A F*****G BUG HORSE?!"
  • Applejack: "But why ain't she being as pocessed by Labrum's spell as the others?"
  • Spiracle: "Like Thorx said. The effect will move more slowly then someone who still embraced the caster. That means, so will the typical Impure Mentally. This means that miss Scootaloo will slowly turn into a young impure Changeling within the next few hours. And once so, she'll become just another minion of Labrum."
  • Rainbow Dash: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?! WE GOTTA CURE HER?! Spiracle, your basicly Labrum's brother, your just as powerful as he is?! SURELY YOU CAN-"
  • Spiracle: "This is a powerful anichent spell that Labrum only managed to cast at all because he absorbed enough love to do so like he does. That means Labrum made himself more powerful than the both of us are at our base powers without love. As much as I want to, I can't help."
  • Rainbow Dash: "THEN HERE?! (Hugs Spiracle) HAVE A F*****G LONG HUG ON THE HOUSE?! I'M HUGGING YOU FOR AS LONG AS I CAN UNTIL YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO FIX THIS?!"
  • Spiracle breaks free!
  • Spiracle: "That's not how it works, Miss Rainbow! Labrum earned the love of basicly a good number of the population of a nation! To even come close, you would have to hug me for half a millenda, and a lot of us would be dead by now, or more intermediately, Poor Scootaloo would already be a slave to Labrum!?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "..... PRINCESS CELESTIA, PLEASE TELL ME YOU CAN-"
  • Celestia: "I'm afraid this is the kind of magic even I could barely understand."
  • Rainbow Dash: "THEN MAYBE STARSWIRL CAN-"
  • Starlight: "Okay, one, Starswirl is still traveling a bit, two, I think I can safely bet that this is beyond pony knowledge, including HIS!"
  • Twilight: "Starlight's right. Starswirl's journel would've brought this spell up if he knew about it."
  • Rainbow Dash: "Duh, uh, THEN MAYBE DESTENY CAN HELP?!"
  • Chrysalis: "OH CAN WE NOT GET HER INVOLVED?!"
  • Thorx: "Chrysalis, do it, diplomatically."
  • Chrysalis: ".... I mean, that is to say, keep in mind that Spiracle and Labrum are basicly super-changelings. Their Caste of special long-living drones are capable of doing spells and magic too difficult for even the likes of my mother! So don't count on Desteny to be anymore helpful then your last opitions."
  • Rainbow Dash started to have a amjor meltdown!
  • Rainbow Dash: "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH?! I CAN'T BE SERIOUSLY LOSING SCOOTALOO LIKE THIS?!"
  • Fluttershy: "RAINBOW DASH, CALM DOWN, YOUR GETTING TOO UPSET?!"
  • Rainbow Dash: "I'M NOT UPSET!! YOUR UPSET!! I'M THE MOST F*****G CHEERY PONY IN EQUESTRIA!! DO I LOOK ANGRY?! (Does the same face)"
  • Smolder: "..... Not sure you want us to answer that-"
  • Rainbow Dash: I'M COMPLETELY CALM-
  • Sandbar: (Slaps her out of her insanity) GET YOUR S*** TOGETHER, WILL YOU?!? Yeesh, and I thought my little brother was the craziest pony in Equestria.
  • Gallus: "So, does that crack in her noggin mean I have to start calling her "Professor Hard-Boiled Egghead" now?"
  • Rainbow Dash: DWA, AAAGGHH, NOT, AN, EGGHEAD!!!
  • Shore: Good job, Gallus. (Gallus flips her off)
  • Rainbow Dash: "OKAY, OKAY?! SCREW ALL OF THIS?! (Grabs Changeling Scootaloo) I'M GOING TO SEEK OUT ZECORA AND SEE IF SHE CAN FIX THIS?! NO ONE, FOLLOW ME?! (ZOOMS OFF BEFORE ANYONE CAN DO ANYTHING)!?"
  • Silverstream: "...... Rainbow Dash is of a wounded heart from this."
  • Pinkie: "..... Oh boy. She's having another "Tanks for the Memories" mental episode."
  • Lightning Dust: "Wait, what?! This happened before?!"
  • Fluttershy: "Yeah, when her tortoise Tank was going to hibernate."
  • Midnight: "..... Twilight, is, Miss Dash going to be okay?"
  • Twilight: "Well, that depends, the last time she got this upset, she ended up causing winter to come in a bang!"
  • Gaster: "Am I the only one who thinks she got, abit overly drumatic?"
  • Gallus: "Well, a little kid pony is about to turn into a maniac's slave, YOU TELL ME?!"
  • Helping Hooves: Well we're still following her. But not all of us. AB, Sweetie, Fluts, Lightning, you go help her. We'll deal with Labrum.
  • Lightning: "Ugh, seriously?! I have to miss out on the action? (Leaves with the others) Rainbow owes me TWO rounds of that Wonderbolt fight for this!"
  • Applejack: "..... It has NOT been Rainbow Dash's day, has it?"
  • Spike: "Not in the slightest."
  • Sincere: "And I thought my co-workers get very angry."
  • Gallus: "..... Okay, I admit it, that comment showed up when it wasn't needed."
  • Smolder: "Ya think?"
  • Chrysalis: "Ahem! Okay, are we done with the druma now?"
  • Thorx: "(Stares sternfully at Chrysalis to ease up)..... What she meant is, I think we should save that little episode for later, because Labrum is diffently moving much more quicker then already anticipated. (Large swarms of Changeling-a-fived ponies are seen forming from Las Pegacus)."
  • Smolder: "Whoa, that dude, is scary fast."

(This played as the Changelingified ponies attack around the land of Equestria)

Ride of the Valkyries (Apocalypse Now version)

Ride of the Valkyries (Apocalypse Now version)

  • Pinkie: I DON'T KNOW WHERE THAT MUSIC IS COMING FROM, BUT IT'S VERY APPROPRIATE!!!!
  • Thorx: "Annnnnd there goes our ability to make a stragity before Labrum made his move. You have to give him this, he doesn't believe in slouthing."
  • Shining Armor: We can't fight civilians!!!
  • Chrysalis: "Tecnecally speaking, lover boy, those ain't civilians anymore! Not as long as Labrum's still up and running!"
  • Shining Armor: "Well, sure they're threats now, but deep down, they also Labrum's hostages!"
  • Throx: "So basicly, the perfect meatsheilds. They're both afraid, but your moral compesses can't stomich bringing harm to them even if it saves your nation! Pardon me for speaking infavorably, but I now regret that I didn't do enough to keep Labrum's favor."
  • Luna: "Well obviously, you didn't, and now Labrum is making the ultamate threat."
  • Twilight: ".... Then we need to do the next best thing, evacuate ponies from their reach and capture any infected Changeys and contain them! We do this right, we can tickle down Labrum's forces without harm."
  • Applejack: "That's a right dandy idear, Twilight."
  • Shining Armor: Great idea, sis! (Shields up the city)... You guys will have to deal with the rest. If Canterlot falls, so does Equestria.
  • Smolder: THAT'S ONE HELL OF A MOTIVATION!!!!
  • Celestia: We must go. Cadence, you look after-
  • Cadence: Way ahead of you. And if we fail, hate to say it, Flurry does make a good, for lack of a better term, weapon of mass destruction.
  • Flurry: BOOMBOOM!!!!
  • Shining Armor:... She means that literally.
  • Yona: We can tell.
  • Twilight: "Let's go! At the rate of this swarm is moving, they would reach Ponyville in mere seconds!"
  • The group charged off!

Ponyville.

  • Ponyville was already being ravished by the swarm as hysteria takes hold!
  • Rockhoof was seen leading an evacuation!
  • Roockhoof: "QUICKLY, UNTO THE SCHOOL OF FRIENDSHIP IF YOU DON'T WANT THESE BUGGERS TOUCHING YA?!"
  • At the School of Friendship, the rest of the factily were seen helping Ponies into the school!
  • Yakhalla: "WHERE ON ALL OF EQUESTRIA DID THIS IMPURE CHANGELINGS COME FROM?!"
  • Koningin: "(Gets a good look at them).... They don't look like naterol Changelings."
  • Spoonful: "I even dare say they look like they just came out of a gambling sector, like they took a quick visit to a hotbed of sin!"
  • Buzzord: "Ohhh, you think they'd been to Las Pegiacus? I hear a new stunting sensation called the Washouts were there!"
  • Entropy: "More like they CAME there, if the blasted city's new eyesore's an indication. (The Changeling Hive of Las Pegacus was seen)...."
  • Kurtle: "..... I, don't think that looks normal."
  • Igmar: "YOU THINK?!"
  • Electross: "Okay, so either Chrysalis or her mom managed to get an army of hybirds to join them, or this is something entirely different!"
  • Barktrot looks on in shock.....
  • Barktrot: "..... I know what this is?! This is an anichent changeling curse?! The Changeling Transformation Spell! I, I must informed Sparkle! (Charges off!)"
  • Yakhalla: "MISS BARKTROT, I DON'T THINK THAT'S ADVISEABLE?!"
  • Barktrot ran across the attacked area, until cornered by some very huge and fat Changelingafived Ponies!
  • Barktrot: ".... Oh just my luck. A blockade of fat."
  • The Fat Changeys snarled and hissed!
  • ???: "Oh goodness me."
  • Suddenly the Fat Changeys get trapped by suddenly appearing plant cages.
  • Mistmane walked in.
  • Mistmane: "I desided to pay ponyville a visit to buy some gardening supplies and I end up discovering that you have abit of a pest control problem."
  • Barktrot: "This is abit worse then dealing with aphids and beetles though. These ponies are under an anichent Changeling curse!"
  • Mistmane: "Wait, these are ponies?! (Notes a kickliner Changey gang).... That, would actselly explain why they look as if they just got out of Las Pegasus."
  • A Vega Magdition Changey charged from behind with Mistmane noticing too late, only for a shovel to hit him, knocking him out.
  • Rockhoof was seen holding that shovel.
  • Rockhoof: "Mistmane, you are a sight for sore-eyes."
  • Mistmane: "Oh Rockhoof, you are such a gentlemen for a Norse pony."
  • Somnambula was seen being chased by some tourest dressed Changeys as she lead them into being trapped in a make-shift web of sticky rope! Meadowbrook showed as well holding a jar of sticky honey.
  • Somnambula: "You were right, Meadowbrook. The Sticker Bee Honey worked like a charm."
  • Mage Meadowbrook: "As it should darling. Now if I could just figure out what got these folks so riled up like a swarm of bad-tempered Flash Bees."
  • Rockhoof: "Meadowbrook, Somnambula! Over here!"
  • Somnambula: "Oh thank goodness, Rockhoof and Mistmane. What a day this turned to! You come to Ponyville to offer meditating services to the Ponyville Spa, and with Meadowbrook, some of her best cures to the hospital, and this plague of locusts happens!"
  • Mage Meadowbrook: "We could really use Starswirl right about now."
  • A loud hiss was heard as the group look to see the Changelingafived Pred, the Sisters, Hidden, and Eightball!
  • Sharp-Pay: "Well TOO BAD, SO SAD?! HE AIN'T HERE?!"
  • The group charged hissing, until they're suddenly caught by a giant jar with airholes!
  • Chain: "EEK?! A MAGICAL MYSTICAL FORCEFILED?! (Hugs onto the Washouts Dolls) HOLD ME DOLLIES?!"
  • Axe-Rella: "No Chian, it's a giant pickle jar."
  • ???: "This is BEYOND extraordenary!"
  • Starswirl and Stygian arrived.
  • Igmar: (Seeing this) SWEET WHATEVER THE ALICORN GOD OF DUMB COINCIDENCE IS, THIS DUMB COINCIDENCE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE COINCIDENTAL!!!!
  • Kurtle: I call hacks, frankly.
  • Yakhalla: "CAN YOU TWO NOT LOOK A GIFT-HOR-..... Errr, that is to say, CAN'T YOU TWO JUST BE THANKFUL OF THEIR WELL-TIMING AND NOT CRITICISE IT LIKE THIS IS ALL A CARTOON?!"
  • Electross: "Yeesh, the Lougers aren't even here yet and already the Post-Modern humor is setting in!"
  • Starswirl: "I was on my way to give Sparkle a surprise visit to give some tokens of my travels, and I suddenly found these odd asortments of Ponies adopting Changeling Biology. I aim to collect these for great reshurch potaintional."
  • Rockhoof: "Then you may be needing more jars, Starswirl, because these "Marvels" are threatening ponies."
  • Starswirl now paid more attention of the situation in being snapped out of his excitment....
  • Starswirl: ".... Well, yes, now I realise that contending them should also be for Equestria's safety."
  • ???: "Welly well well brother!"
  • The Flimflam brothers appeared as Taller Changelings with horns breaming with strong Changeling Magic.
  • Flim: "It's our old "PAL" Starswirl the Bearded?! FYI, WE'RE STILL RATHER SORE YOU MADE US GAVE A REFUND WITH THAT SCHOOL?!"
  • Starswirl: "Wait, the Flimflam brothers? What happened to you two?"
  • Flam: "Let's just say we took a quick stroll down to Transformation Centrol, AND NOW THE FLIMFLAM BROTHERS ARE 90% BETTER THEN EVER! New and improved?!"
  • Barktrot: "They are not being themselves! They've been cursed!"
  • Flim: "Oh sure, YOU would call it a "Curse".... But Labrum likes to say, it's an improvement."
  • Rockhoof: "So this wicked warlock "Labrum" is behind this? Then I'll give him a good whack of me shovel like I did to the Grand Converter in Xiaomia!"
  • Flam: "Oh, but that's the problem friend..... Your dealing with his offictal New Changeling Empire Vanguards!"
  • Flim: "Originally he meant for us to be petty servents, but because our usual greedy nature granted these, expectedly greater bodies, Labrum discovered he accsidently turned us into a greater caste of Changelings, so he ended up having a more, grandiose use for us."
  • Starswirl: "Now, I know you two weren't exactly honorable ponies, but this is obviously far from what your worse can be! At best, your usually just oppertunistic businessmen! Your far from being like this Labrum!"
  • Flim: "Empisis on the, "New and Improved". We were WEAK back then! Now Labrum has made us stronger!"
  • Flam: "And one can only imagine what Labrum's tinkering on you guys would bring! I can already see it! The Pillers of Equestria, Changelingafived! You would become Labrum's best warriors?!"
  • ???: "SORRY, JERKS?! NOT INTERESTED?!"
  • Flash Magnus charged with his sheild and tossed it like Captain America!
  • Flim and Flam: "WHAT THE- (The two got dazed with the sheild hit them) OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW?!"
  • Starswirl: "Perfect timing as always, Magnus."
  • Flash Magnus: "Thanks, but I brought some backup!"
  • Flim: "WHAT BACKUP?!" (Ember and her elites arrive)
  • Igmar: (Seeing this as well) YEESH, HOW MUCH MORE COINCIDENTAL CAN YOU GE- (Yakhalla bonked him with his staff) OW!?
  • Yakhalla: "CAN YOU KINDLY RESUME HELPING US EVACUATE PONIES AND NOT WORRY ABOUT SUDDEN CONVINENCES?!"
  • Igmar: "Uh, alcourse sir! After all, I think this is about it-"
  • Thorax: (He, Destiny, Ann-Tena, Pharynx, Vespa, and many Changeling forces arrived) WE DETECTED A HIGH SURGE OF CHANGELING MAGIC IN EQUESTRIA!!
  • Igmar:... DOES KARMA NOT KNOW HOW TO TAKE A BLUFF- (Yakhalla was about to bonk him again when Igmar stopped)..... I'll stop.
  • Yakhalla: "Better."
  • Destiny: Stand together, my pure Changelings! If we work together and share our love with these Changelings, they, too, shall be enlightened as we were!
  • Ember: OH, PLEASE, DON'T CARE BEAR THESE MUTATED PONIES BACK TO NORMAL, YOU'LL JUST EMBARRASS US ALL!!
  • Thorax: You don't even know what that is!
  • Destiny: Wait, these are mutated ponies?
  • Ember: "Hey, we may not be rediculiously familier with Changeling biology, but after Insecta, I think we can now know the diffs between real Changelings and Changeys!"
  • Desteny gets a better look of the Changeys and their outfits....
  • Desteny: "..... That, would explain, their unusual attire. What happened to them?"
  • Pharynx: "If I can make a wild guess here, either a interacial Pony/Changeling couple ended up having an epic baby boom, or these guys were cursed by an obscure anichent spell."
  • King Seta arrived shortly after.
  • King Seta: "Oh no, this looks like a classic case of the Changeling Transformation Spell to me."
  • Pharynx: "..... Okay, diffently the second one."
  • Thorax: "But who could've done this?!"
  • King Seta: "The spell can only be done by an Elder Caste Changeling. And since I only know of two as of this time, I think we may had just discovered what happened to Throx's Hiberation Temple Caretaker."
  • Rockhoof: "So that's who this "Labrum" is."
  • Flam: "Awww nuts, this is very unplanned?!"
  • Flim: "Welp, it can't get worse then this!"
  • ???: "WHAT IN THE WIDE WORLD OF EQUESTRIA HAPPENED TO YOU TWO?!"
  • Twilight's group were seen!
  • Spike: "I think it can be safely guessed Labrum got to them!"
  • Flam: "..... OH WAY TO PROVOKE KARMA, BROTHER?!"
  • Flim: "OH CAN YOU NOT?! ARMY, GO AFTER THE INTERLOPERS?!"
  • The Changeys swarm about and head torwords the group's location!
  • Gallus: "..... Sparkle, please tell me you have a plan here?!"
  • Twilight: Don't worry, we already have a plan underway! We just need to hear from Chrysalis and Throx.
  • Thorax: WHAT?!
  • Destiny: Why would my sister and mother include themselves in this fight?
  • Rainbow: They proposed a temporary alliance after hearing of Labrum.
  • Applejack: And we can't do anything until we know the Lodgers approve of this method.
  • Pharynx: AND YOU LISTENED TO THEM?! THEY'RE PROBABLY JUST DOING THIS IN THE NAME OF THEIR SELF-ENTITLEMENT BS, AND WILL JUST STEAL HIS PLAN FOR THEMSELVES!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: They promised not to-
  • Pharynx: OH MY GODS, ARE YOU PONIES SO DENSE?! THEY NEVER MAKE PROMISES!!! THEY'LL JUST DO IT ANYWAY!!! You CAN'T trust them!!!
  • Barktrot: "WOULD YOU RATHER RISK FACING THEM ALONE THEN ACCEPT A POISON ALLIENCE?! (The Swarm was building up)....."
  • Pharynx: "....... Fair point."
  • Starswirl: "RETREAT INTO THE SCHOOL?! IT'S OUR ONLY OPITION?! (The group made a run for it!)"
  • Flam: "That looks like we quickly gain a better handle of the situation brother!"
  • Flim: "As Labrum expects from us."

Inside School of Friendship

  • Shore: WELL JUST WONDERFUL!! NOW WHAT DO WE DO?!?
  • Yona: (Shaking Sandbar) YONA NO WANNA BE CHANGELING HYBRID!!!!... Please-
  • Gallus: "WE GET IT, YOU'LL ASK US NOT TO TELL YAKBRAIN?! THAT JOKE'S BEEN DONE TO DEATH?!"
  • Silverstream: WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE BY TRANSMUTATIOOOOOHOOHOOHOON!!!!!
  • Sandbar: Alright, let's everybody just calm the buck down! Especially you, hon.... (He gurgle screamed in the pond)
  • Shore: (Softly chuckles) Never change, please.
  • Pharynx: So... (Takes deep breath)... What do your 'allies' have in mind?
  • Rarity: Well, like Twilight said, we haven't heard from them yet, so it'll depend if the Lodgers approve of our little truce.
  • Pharynx: Oh I sincerely doubt they'll align themselves with them. They'll probably back me up on this one.
  • Rarity: CAN YOU JUST HAVE FAITH, PLEASE?!

Dragon Temple

  • The computer is heard beeping as the Lodgers have just returned.
  • Kowalski: My nonexistent God, that was the roughest mission of all. A supervillain that can see strengths and weaknesses and adapt around them? He made Metal Sonic look like a flimsy action figure.
  • B.O.B: Well, Enlivy was something new, quite frankly. She's one of those professional villains we don't usually get.
  • SpongeBob: And man, can she fight like a demoness.
  • Icky: "Well, it ended up going aganst her, because she ended up being too good for us, so much so that she ended up defeating herself by being too disappointed on how easily beatable we actselly are that she gave up out of pity. Kinda like how it went with Magnito in the MCU."
Why Magneto Can Never Be In the MCU

Why Magneto Can Never Be In the MCU

  • Deadpool: HAH, THAT WAS A HILARIOUS VIDEO!!!! (Disappeared immediately)
  • Gazelle: "Yeah, she realised that if she was too much for even the Uniter, then, where's the challnage in being a villain anymore? She basicly retired herself and turned herself into Tricorn-Katraz because, frankly, we ruined being evil for her by being too easy."
  • Po: "Well, I count that as a victory, ish, because we disappointed a villain into giving up anyway."
  • Lord Shen: "Err, be that as it may, that latest encounter is WHY we may need to spend some extra time improving ourselves. We may not be so lucky of ending up disappointing them into giving up. Next time, we might end up with a powerful villain MUCH more dedicated to evil then some mindless thrill seeker.
  • Private: Uh, guys? The communicator is ringing.
  • Kowalski: Oh, hell! Another mission. After we got our asses cracked? If it's something serious and worthy of another episode, somebody shoot me.
  • Skipper: (Rico started hacking up an AK-47) He was joking, Rico.
  • Rico: (Swallowed up the gun) Awww!
  • Bagheera: You were really willing to shoot him and potentially kill- Oh, who am I kidding, this is a cartoon. Daffy could survive worse.
  • Jumbaa: I'll get it. (Answers the communicator) Shell Lodge Squad Dragon Temple, where ASAP stands for As SpongeBob Approves Persuasively.
  • Celestia: Strange to see you answer, Jumbaa.
  • Jumbaa: Celestia! (Looks back at the exhausted Lodgers) Uh, is bad time.
  • Celestia: ".... If I were to make a wild guess, did you guys ended up encountering an OP villain too much for even Gazelle who only got defeated by their own disappointment in you guys that resulted in you not being up to snuff?"
  • Jumbaa: "..... Oh great rings of Ringa-Ringa, are we THAT easy to read?"
  • Celestia: "I'll make another wild guess and assume yes. Then alot of you may not like to hear how there's a resurgence of rogue changelings and-"
  • Everyone: ROUGE CHANGELINGS?!
  • Lord Shen: Is Chrysalis aiding them? Because if they did anything to harm you, so help me, I'll-
  • Celestia: Ohhhhhh, pfffffffffffffffffffffffff, yyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, about that..... She's helping us with her mother, actually. (Shen's eyes got bloodshot with a vase shatter sound)...
  • Icky: "..... Kinda not what Shen wanted to hear after we were lucky that an indie villain only lost to us because she got bored kicking our asses all day long."

School of Friendship

  • Lord Shen: (They immediately arrived with the portal remote) YOU LET CHRYSALIS AND HER MOTHER IN ON THIS?!?
  • Chrysalis: HEY, I HAVE COME TO HER! (Shapeshifts into Shen) This is you! I HATE EVERYONE EXCEPT CELESTIA! THIS IS THE FINEST SILK IN THE PROVINCE! ICKY, IAGO, WHAT ARE YOU IDIOTIC FUCKBAGS DOING?! I CAUSED THE INFAMOUS ALL-OUT FRENCH EXPERIENCE FIASCO WITH A FUCKING SNAIL!
  • Lord Shen: WHY YOU!!! (Brings one of his cannons in through the portal remote)
  • Patrick: "Ohhhhhhhh, so THAT'S how he does it!"
  • Icky: "AND THAT'S A SERIES MYSTERY HISTORICLY SOLVED?! (Kisses his hand) GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY!!"
  • Throx: ENOUGH! BOTH OF YOU! I can assure you, Shen, that-
  • Lord Shen: That you're trying to steal this rogue Changeling's stupid plan.
  • Pharynx: CALLED IT!!!
  • Young Seven: SHUT UP!!!!
  • Thorx: "Ugh, figures this would be brought up. Look, if it assures you, me and my daughter's interests are STRICTLY to punish Labrum! As inviting as his plan sounds, if it has to be sacriviced to get ANY co-operation with you ungrateful louts, then so be it. Besides, those hybrids will only ever obey Labrum as the caster and only Elder Caste Changelings can utilise such complex spells anyway. Even if we wanted to, we're helpless to atthive such."
  • Chrysalis: "SO QUELL YOUR PARANOIA, IDIOTS?!"
  • Thorx: "(Facehooves)..... Chrysalis, diplomacy, LEARN IT?!"
  • Lord Shen: I'll be damned if I let you stab us in the back, bug! They have us to deal with these guys, and NOT YOU!! WE DON'T NEED YOU!!!
  • Throx: Oh, you DO, peacock. While I can never utilise it myself, I know and understand how the Changeling Transmutation Spell works reguardless, and more than anychangeling else. You'll need my help if you are to stop Labrum.
  • Lord Shen: "..... Let me give the most approbeate answer I can think off."

One comical situation later.

  • Throx and Chrysalis are seen thrown in an anti-changeling holding cell.
  • Chrysalis: "....... Told ya heroes are f*****g fickle."
  • Thorx: "As evidently, noted."
  • Icky: ".... AW FOR PETE'S SAKE, SHEN?! Look, I know we don't exactly, like these two, but it's obvious for once that they taken a break from being C**TS and want us to fight a bigger problem!"
  • Desteny: "I agree, Peacock. Mother had even said she has no ability to use that spell herself, so any throey of them being able to usurp Labrum's plan, is thrown out the window."
  • Lord Shen: "And what makes you confident she can't learn?"
  • Thorx: "Because I tried, and failed...... a LOT! I sooner ended up wasting love and mana and burned out my horn than cause ANY transformations!"
  • Pharynx: "..... I, begrudgingly have to admit, that is a good argument. Throx is a powerful Changeling. If she can't even make the spell work for her, then, there isn't actselly any danger."
  • Lord Shen: "..... WELL, DO YOU TWO HAVE PROOF THAT YOUR NOT SECRETLY ALLINED WITH LABRUM?!"
  • Chrysalis: "Let us go out there and watch."

French Narrator: Later...

  • Throx and Chrysalis were seen hidiously beaten up as Barktrot was preparing a lot of medical supplies.....
  • Applejack: "..... Golly. Labrum's Changeys went out to town on ya."
  • Icky: "They've mopped up Ponyville with ya!"
  • Buzzord: "And you do mean literally! They actselly physically picked them up, got a bucket of cold water, dunked their heads in and started mopping! Hey, credit where credit's due, at least Ponyville will be cleaner now... By evil Changeling standards."
  • Barktrot: "...... Idiot."
  • Thorx: "..... There. I, litterally sacriviced my pride, allowing easy oppendents to do harm to me, just to prove, Labrum's BLANENT lack of respect to us....."
  • Lord Shen: "..... It could JUST as easily be a front!"
  • Chrysalis: "OH, FOR F***'S SAKE, WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO, GO TALK TO THAT BASTURD OURSELVES?!"
  • Lord Shen: "Yes, and I want to be there myself to see any possable earnest rejection! I can tell when one is phoning it in! But I am VERY confident that the minute he sees you two, he's gonna-"

French Narrator: One Filler Scene Later...

  • Now Shen was seen greatly beaten up as well...
  • Chrysalis: You believe us now, pea-C***?
  • Lord Shen: "..... Everyone..... I can, speak with full confidence, that Labrum is SERIOUS about his distaste for Chrysalis and Throx, and that they don't have ENTIRELY evil ulterior motives with helping us."
  • Pharynx: "That being said, be honest ladies, you're obviously only doing this because you just want a free shot at kicking Labrum's ass! Because otherwise, this would've been paradise to you two!"
  • Chrysalis: "Yeah that much we're not gonna deny. The fact Equestria benefits from us getting our revenge onto that neglectful fool is nothing short of collateral damage on our part. So just so we're clear, we are NOT here to redeem ourselves, NOR the prior usurp idea! This, is strictly, just a revenge mission?!"
  • King Seta: "Well just to be safe. (Casts a spell).... I casted a spell on you two that'll quickly send you two back into the Leage Fortress on an event that you two would then after decide to cause trouble and/or if it WAS an over-complicated ruse."
  • Throx: "Overtly cautious as always, Seta."
  • Seta: "It's nothing personal Throx. It's just that I know well enough that you and Chrysalis won't be ready to change for a good long time. The best I can do until then, is play things safely."
  • Throx: "Ease up on the romantics and let's focus on matters at hand, shall we?"
  • Chrysalis: Indeed. We proposed a temporary truce with the Princess of Friendship in order to deal with Labrum, and they said we need you heroes to approve of it.
  • Lord Shen: "..... Well like Seta said, the moment you end up changing your minds, or if this was a VERY clever rose as previously expected, it's BACK to the Leage fortress."
  • Throx: "So otherwise, it's a yes?"
  • Icky: "More like an unsure okay."
  • Thorx: "Close enough."

School of Friendship

  • Twilight: (Came out) They gave an unsure okay, guys.
  • Pinkie: Well, better than nothing.
  • Rainbow Dash: Now what?
  • Rarity: "I guess this is a part where we start utilising stragity."
  • Cozy: Well, here's a thought: Why not disguise yourselves as Changeys yourselves and infiltrate the hive?
  • Twilight:... Cozy, you young genius!
  • Cozy: That is what my cutie mark is for.
  • Thorax: But, they're bound to be synthesizing magidranium. We won't be able to use magic inside.
  • Ocellus: Unless it's Changeling magic.
  • Pharynx: Yes, but they should be smart enough to create magidranium specific for Pure Changelings.
  • Cozy: Well good thing you have Cwisawis and her mommy for that, huh?
  • Shore:... Yeah. That's actually a good point. Chrysalis and Throx can cast the disguises.
  • Chysalis: "Not that it isn't brillient, it's sadly flawwed, because Labrum would easily figure that! He would modify the magidrainium to reckindise our magical sigitures and make OUR magic fail too."
  • Gallus: ".... GOOD GRIEF, THIS GUY'S TOO SMART FOR US?!"
  • Gaster: "Well he has to be. He DID desided that Chrysalis and her mommy weren't worth s*** after all."
  • Throx: "That's not nessersarly a doomed scenario. Modifying a magidranium stone is, difficult, even for Elder Castes. There is a small window of oppertunity we can use before he can make the magidranium reckindise our sigiture."
  • Chrysalis: "Keyword, small, because as we just learn, Labrum doesn't believe in slouthing! He works fast! Scary fast!"
  • Buzzord: "As evidented. (Points to a window that shows the swarming Changeys buzzing around like mad!)."
  • Yakhalla: "Perhaps it's possable to delay his process on that in some way."
  • Chrysalis: "Good luck on that. Labrum may be ungrateful, but he's not an ungrateful idiot! He will be cautious to anything strange and too convinent! He expects the unexpected."
  • Gallus: Okay, Queen Know-it-all, what's something even HE wouldn't expect?
  • Chrysalis: "Don't you know what "Expect the unexpected" means? It means he would be prepared for anything?! He wouldn't even trust victory being handed to him on a silver platter!"
  • Thorax: I have an idea... But it's pretty risky.
  • Smolder: "Does it involve something that would be degrading?"
  • Thorax:... You might say that. I'll have to turn the Pure Changelings impure again.
  • Everyone: WHAT?!?!
  • Thorax: But before you get ANY BAD IDEAS ABOUT IT, it'll only be for a while. Keep in mind that desperate times would require desperate measures. As we speak, Labrum would spare no time increasing his defenses. He's more then aware Equestria won't take a city of their's being congured lightly. He'll expect challnages. And if he ends up preparing for just about everything, there will be no touching him.
  • Pharynx: ".... Fair point, but you should know that Elder Castes can have very strong automatic control of most other castes. And I'm confident Labrum's damn smart enough to know that!"
  • Thorax: Well, I could make it so we'll be impervious to Labrum's control.
  • Throx: "Labrum's very good at countering. Has to be a DAMN strong spell to survive him."
  • ???: Then how about a COUNTER-counter spell? (Discord pops out into the school)..... Chrysalis.
  • Chrysalis: ".... Discord."
  • Throx: "Is he still cross with you about the Fluttershy thi-"
  • The two got suddenly trapped in fly paper....
  • Throx: "..... No further questions."
  • Icky: "..... Let me guess, just something to get off your chest?"
  • Discord: "That, and I just thought it be funny. Nobody likes to see Fluttershy cry... Except for dacryphiles. (Shivers) I don't even want to think about it. Anyway, I think I might be useful considering this new "Labrum" character."
  • Starlight: Oh, like you were back in "To Where and Back Again"?
  • Discord: Hey, that was the magidranium's doing! Though it still sucks that those silly rocks can even effect chaos magic, a type of magic with no rules!"
  • Pharynx: "Well that's the thing. Chaos magic is STILL magic, just more..... Zany."
  • Applejack: "It's kinda way Tirek can still suck out your magic just fine. There are some rules even chaos magic can't break AS easily."
  • Discord: VEEERY degrading.
  • Chaos: We're chaos beings, why do you care about that? If there's one thing we like more than unpredictability and torment, it's challenges.
  • Discord:... D'oh, curse my inner chaos-child! Well, countercounters are something even MY kind excel at. It's what we chaos beings do. Frustrate those who are prepared by planning around the plan they're planning around our plan?
  • Cozy: Weawwy genius, Mister Discord!
  • Discord: I know, I'm awesome. And trust me, I can counter, for all eternity.
  • Gallus: "Well keep in mind that you need to get creative here. This Labrum guy can expect the unexcepted. Hardly the kinda guy you can pull a fast one on."
  • Discord: (Dubbed as Warren T. Cat) Hey, trust me, kid. Trust me.
  • Smolder: "..... (Quietly) This is gonna be one of those days."

Chapter 5: Facing Labrum's Army

Labrum's Hive

  • Buster and Caster were seen building up the Magidranium wall like a brick wall with construction-worker dressed Changeys.
  • Labrum: "Keep up the good work, boys. Soon my Magidranium wall will be ready, and I will prepare my modification to reckinise Chrysalis' and Throx's magic sigitures."
  • Buster: "Duh, why, the need for that, boss? Wouldn't Queens Chrysalis and Throx appresiate a Changeling uprising?"
  • Labrum: "Let's just say it's more complicated then that, boys. I am very likely on their bad side due to my absince in the hiberation temple."
  • Caster: "Well duh! That's why we're building the wall, stupid?! (Bonks Buster!)"
  • Buster: "HEY?! (Splashes a bucket of Changeling Slime at Caster)!"
  • Caster: ".... Oh, a wise guy, eh?"
  • The two were about to fight!
  • Labrum: "Boys, boys! Let's remember that we're all apart of the same hive in Las Pegacus here. Now ease up and work togather."
  • Caster: ".... Oh, sorry boss."
  • Buster: "Won't happen again, sir. (The two resume work)."
  • Labrum: "... (Quietly) I love the Elder Caste ability to control lesser castes. Makes working with these two SO much easier."
  • A sectratary dressed Changey flew up.
  • Sectratary: "The Swarms are reporting in, they got a mass line of spoils to bring. A whole mess of ponies."
  • Labrum: "Exsellent. Be sure to work out a seperation pile between ponies that'll be of use to us Changelingafived, or for love harvest."
  • Sectratary: "Yes Mr. Labrum. Would you also like to get a massage?"
  • Labrum: "Ohhhh! Luxery! Uh, AHEM! Save that after I attend to immediate matters."
  • Sectratary: "Yes Mr. Labrum."
  • Labrum: "And please call me "Emperor"!"
  • Sectratary: "Yes sir, Emperor Labrum."
  • Labrum: (The Sectratary leaves)...... After all these years, it's finally time for ponies to pay for their sins. And nothing will be a threat to me.
  • A tiny robed figure was seen in the shadows.....

Outskirts of Las Pegacus.

  • Labrum's hive was seen....
  • The Group arrived.....
  • Discord: "(Dressed as a bug exterminator).... Yup. You got QUITE a hornet's nest up there."
  • Skipper: Well, congratulations, you gave me literally painful memories.
  • Discord: You're welcome. Now, Chrysler...
  • Chrysalis: Chrysalis! I thought we agreed no name-calling during the truce!
  • Discord: Whatever. You're the hive construction expert, so what's the plan?
  • Chrysalis: "Well, for starters, a hive like this is BOUND to have a billion ways to enter it, but alot of them, if nearly all, are well guarded and fortifived."
  • Gallus: "No kidding."
  • Rainbow Dash: So we just need to find an entrance that isn't guarded. Piece of cake. I'll just do a quick fly-around and- (Flies off, but gets pulled back by the tail by Applejack)
  • Applejack: Hold on, there! If we recklessly charge toward the hive just to find an entrance, we'll get caught.
  • Rainbow Dash: Hey, I can find an entrance without getting caught in 10 seconds flat!
  • Applejack: And you'd get caught before you can come back.
  • Rainbow Dash: You don't know that.
  • Chrysalis: No, she's right. With boundless eyes, they'd react very quickly. We're just far enough to speak freely.
  • Rainbow Dash: Well, then, what would YOU suggest?
  • Icky: "Well given it's a cloud city it ain't like we can just go the underground route."
  • Iago: No f***, Sherlock!
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Looks like she had an idea)..... But, why not, under, "Cloud"!"
  • Lord Shen: "..... Are you suggesting we get in there under the cloud the city's on?"
  • Rainbow Dash: Why not? Some of us can fly.
  • Lord Shen: "Well TRY to remember the ones that CAN'T, first off. Second, it could be easy to get lost in that large pile of fluff! 3rdly, well, we might end up appearing in front of guards and get caught! And most of all, the progress of the Magidranium being functional are still unknown to us!"
  • Gaster: And most importantly, WE'D GET NABBED IN A MILLISECOND!!!
  • Lord Shen: I already said that.
  • Gaster: Yeah, but it's the most OBVIOUSLY VISIBLE PART!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: "Ahh, that would be the case, if you don't have automatic knowledge of how a cloud was made."
  • Icky: "..... Sky, water?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "BEYOND THAT! Las Pegacus is OBVIOUSLY on an artificually formed cloud. That means, the cloud itself, is artifical. Ergo, that means there's a series of cloud tunnels in there that allowed workers to manuver safely inside at the time Las Pegacus was being buildt."
  • Lord Shen: ".... Fair point, but you would need a map for it, and even then, those tunnels are bound to be discovered by Labrum's forces eventually."
  • Rainbow Dash: "The Wonderbolts keep ALOT of maps of cloud tunnels for cloud cities like this and Cloudsdale. It's so they can make quick escapes from the press and fans after a great show the fastest, along with finding lost maintainence workers and/or criminals that sometimes try to use the tunnels to evade law offictals."
  • Mantis: "That's an interesting fun fact, but unless you have a map on standby, I doubt that it's helpful info-"
  • Rainbow Dash: Duh, of course. A Wonderbolt is ALWAYS ready for action. (Takes out a map)
  • Lord Shen: Well seems like you thought of almost everything.
  • Rainbow Dash: I just treated it like one big adventure.... Kinda like everything in my life.
  • Lord Shen: But, you need to consider one small detail.
  • Rainbow Dash: What's that?
  • Lord Shen: MOST OF US CAN'T WALK ON CLOUDS, YOU MORON!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: YOU THINK I DON'T KNOW THAT?!
  • Twilight: But he's got a good point. We'd need magic to do that, and that's obviously not an easy option because of the Magidranium present, even if we haven't seen it yet, it is likely still there.
  • Gallus: "Well why not just make it that only the flyers go while he grounders keep contact?"
  • Crane: That would mean limited numbers would be infiltrating, and we'll need all the help we can get.
  • Shifu: Unfortunately, I don't see much of a choice.
  • Spyro: Sadly yes. Some of us that can fly are good fighters. But Changelings are strong in numbers. One wrong move could get us mobbed by his forces.
  • Icky: "So basicly, we have to be like, James Bond/Solid Snake levels of stealthy for this?"
  • Gallus: No, I changed my mind, what do you think?
  • Gilda: Gallus, ease up on the unnecessary sarcasm, will you? (The heroes split up as the flying heroes took off while the others scattered around the area)

Cloud Tunnel Enterence.

  • The Flyers arrived.
  • Icky: "Okay team, we're about to enter the belly of the storm."
  • Cynder: "What does the map say, Rainbow Dash?"
  • Rainbow Dash: "There are several latches that open up to the primary buildings of Las Pegacus: One into the Flimflam Bros' Resort, which may be too heavily guarded since it could be where Labrum is staying, another into the Grandoise Statium, which could have guards at this point when we left, another to the Sphinx Casino, which is also risky cause there might be some lookouts there, the Puffy Cloud Hotel, which could be a barracks now, The Restaurent of the Five Stars Buffet, which I'm betting is where they'll store ponies who'll be put in cocoons to suck love out of if Labrum thinks they're better off as that, Celestia's Kingdom Casino, The Late at Luna's Night Club, The Candence's Spell of Love Getaway Spa, which are often simplified as the Celestial Casino, the Lunar Night Club, and the Cadenza Spa to be less of a mouthful, The Storage House at the far side of Las Pegasus where they put retired attactions, and the Las Pegacus Presidential Building, a lot of which are likely to have guards, because if Chrysalis is right, Labrum is a guy who covers all bases."
  • Skyceria: "Well, then let's just try going into a tunnel with less guards."
  • Twilight: "That's the thing. We don't know the number of guards. Labrum would likely have an even number of guards at the end of each tunnel. And before Icky says something stupid, I would imagine Labrum would take extra special care to use only the COMPIDENT ones."
  • Icky: "Dang, she KNEW I was gonna bring that up."
  • Gallus: "Likely because she figured you were gonna bring that up."
  • Barktrot: "And remember that using magic will be out of the question because of Magdranium. Even if the wall itself is not yet utilised, it's own effects will be very much already at work."
  • Throx: "Which is basicly the mad brillience of Labrum's stragity."
  • Gaster: "So basicly, we have to be REALLY freakin' careful here."
  • Rainbow Dash: More careful than you can be in tunnels made of intangible clouds... Wow, being an egghead is a curse.
  • Gilda: So, what do we do?
  • Rainbow Dash: Well...
  • Icky: Please don't say what I think you're going to say.
  • Rainbow Dash: We should probably...
  • Icky: Here it comes...
  • Rainbow Dash: Stick together for safety.
  • Icky: Oh. Thank Celestia-
  • Spyro: I don't know. We'd probably cover more ground if we split up.
  • Icky: YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!!
  • Rainbow Dash: No, he's right.
  • Icky: CELESTIA DAMMIT-
  • Rainbow Dash: BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT that'd make getting captured easier.
  • Icky: HAH!
  • Spyro/Rainbow Dash: Icky, adults are talking!
  • Cynder: "Then let's try to split into groups of odd numbers. Devide by fives or fours. Each group would have a fight-capable leader, and each member will be ranked from strongest to weakest."
  • Icky: "Awwww, but can't we just stick togather-"
  • Rainbow Dash: (With clenched teeth) I WILL GET A HOSE!!!
  • Icky: "(Wimpers like a scared Puppy), I'll be good."
  • Iago: So how do we know who's gonna lead each team, and who's gonna follow them?
  • Cynder: "I'll be based on who trusts who the most, and/or it has to be who can each of us bests listens to."
  • Icky: Well, I don't trust you guys anymore, so good luck with that. Let me know how it works out. (Flies off)
  • Iago: "Oh just get back here! Ya go out there, a Changey's gonna spot ya!"
  • Icky stopped before he got too far and went back!
  • Icky: "Damn it Logic, you fickle asshole!"
  • Spyro: Now, each team will need a strong, smart, and defensive member, too.
  • Fluttershy: Some of us aren't good at this sneaking thing. I'm more comfortable with either Rainbow Dash or Discord, but he and Chaos couldn't come because of their detectable magic signatures.
  • Rainbow Dash: Then you're on my team.
  • Icky: Will some of us be live bait, because that's what me, Iago, and Sparx are good for.
  • Sparx: Suck my tail!
  • Cynder: None of us are going to be live bait. We can't draw attention to ourselves and they'll likely know a diversion when they see it.
  • Cozy: I know I would.
  • Thorax: Well, there's about 51 of us, so... Let's split into 5, 4, 5, 4, 5, 4, 5, 4, 5, and 10. Spyro, Cynder, Twilight, Gilda, Rainbow, Ember, Flash, Crane, Pharynx, and I will lead each team.
  • Spyro: And to make sure we're real, let's have a code word. Let's remember we're dealing with shape-shifters after all, so particularly smart ones can surprise us.
  • Sparx: Pbbbt. I guess Annoying Draconequus is good enough.
  • Spyro: No. The code word has to be inconspicuous. Something that doesn't raise suspicion.
  • Silverstream: "How about, She sells seashells by the seashore?"
  • Pharynx: ".... Yeeeeaaaaaahhhhh, that's a no on that one. It has to be inconspicuous, but also simple and easy to remember."
  • Crane: "How about Wings of Justice?"
  • Sparx: "Are you always gonna be about that?"
  • Pharynx: "Well not THAT simple. I meant simple for us, but difficult for the Changeys."
  • Icky: "Bah, this is gonna take fore- (Tries to lean on a cloud but trips into a janitor closet) OOOP?! (Clutters are heard as the group wince!)......"
  • Nothing happens.....
  • Batty: ".... Whew! Guess we're too far away to hear."
  • Rainbow Dash opens the door, and finds Icky covered janitorial supplies.
  • Spike: "Tch, way to almost get us captured, ya Dunce Ichthyornis...."
  • Pharynx looked as if he has a realisation.
  • Pharynx: ".... That's it! Dunce Ichthyornis! It's perfect!"
  • Icky: How's that inconspicuous? Calling a Changey a dunce? You'd be in some bird s*** right there.
  • Pharynx: "The "dunce" part will likely be a common insult the Changeys will give to eachother, among others. Trust me. Impures, tend to be assholes to eachother. They'll get used to insults. And the last word.... Well, I bet it's likely alot of these guys don't reckindise prehistory too much apart from more famous Saurens."
  • Icky: "..... Ohhhhh, I get ya. Insults would be a thing with these guys. Got ya."
  • Rainbow Dash:... So, who goes where?
  • Spiracle: "I wish to be with the team that heads torwords the resort. I have a brotherly score to settle."
  • Gaster: "Same! Asshole turned my brothers into stooges!"
  • Crane: "Well, some of us need to be able to set up a big trap for all of Labrum's army, so, some of us will need to head to the Stadium."
  • Icky: "Well, we could cover our tails by checking out that Sphinx casino, to give look out, (Quietly) And not to just enjoy some gambling games making the most of a bad situation!"
  • Spyro: "(Dry) I heard that, wise guy. (Seriously) Mostly a good idea though."
  • Flash Magnus: "Well, since the Puffy Cloud Hotel could be converted into barracks, leave that to me and any who gets into my team."
  • Crane: I might as well lead for the Buffet.
  • Gallus: "Well, I haven't exactly had lunch yet, so, am I good for the team heading there?"
  • Ember: "I'll cover the "Celestia's Kingdom" place."
  • Barktrot: "I'll partake into the Luna themed Night Club."
  • Ocellus: "Oh, oh, oh, me-me-me-me! Can I have the Spa? I always wanted to go see it since I learned about Las Pegasus sometime prior!"
  • Cynder: "I think there may be something impourent and dire in the storage house. A team will need to go there."
  • Quartz: "Well, I think it should also be impourent to check out the presidental building. Labrum might be turning it into a stragity room. It would be impourent to get more insight on his stragity."
  • Ember: Good thinking.
  • Thorax: I might as well lead the team to the resort.
  • Spyro: I'm calling the Presidential Building.
  • Rainbow Dash: Luna Night Club.
  • Twilight: Spa.
  • Pharynx: Stadium.
  • Gilda: Casino.
  • Cozy: Pwesident pwace.
  • Thunderclap: Me, Downpour and the boys-
  • Pharynx: Mostly fives and fours, remember?
  • Thunderclap: Ugh, Presidential Building.
  • Pharynx: Again, we need to separate and compensate the strongest and weakest.
  • Thunderclap: (Sighs) Fine. Presidential Building.
  • Frostbite: Spa.
  • Coldfront: Stadium.
  • Downpour: Luna Clu- Wait, which team has what number?
  • Smolder: I don't know, I'm just trying to wrap my head around who goes where because WE'RE GOING TOO FAST!!
  • Spike: Well we can't just sit here forever, we have to leave as soon as possible.
  • Quartz: He's right.
  • Gallus: Yeah, not gonna lie, I'm lost too.
  • Iago: You lost me.
  • Boomer: Hoohoohoo, no we haven't, you're right there.
  • Dinky: OH FOR F***'S SAKE, REALLY, BOOMER?!
  • Friend Owl: Okay, we're not going anywhere. (Everyone argued until Gallus got aggravated)
  • Gallus: ALRIGHT EVERYONE, SHUT UP!!! (They did that) (Dubbed as Stewie) Alright, this is bulls***! I can't follow what's going on anymore, and obviously you all can't either. So, let's make this easy and take a vote. Who's going to the Resort, raise your hand, hoof, whatever appendreage counts as a front limb! (Many did)... Okay, the resort gets the most members, so this goes to Thorax, Spiracle, Vertex, Ann-Tena, Earrita, Gaster, Insectasaurus, Iago, and Devon and Cornwall. (Devon was about to speak) You know the technicality, I'm counting bodies, and not heads. You and Cornwall count as one. Presidential Building? (They raised hands) Five. Spyro, Sparx, Smolder, Thunderclap, and Cozy. Spa? (They raised hands) Four. Twilight, Spike, Ocellus, and Frostbite. Stadium? (They raised hands) Five. Pharynx, Vespa, Thundra, Coldfront, and Spud. Night Club? (They raised hands) Four. Rainbow Dash, Scalio, Fluttershy, and Barktrot.
  • Downpour: Damn.
  • Gallus: Hotel? (They raised hands) Five. Flash, Somnambula, Noser, Friend Owl, strange name, and Billy. Storage House? (They raised hands) Four. Cynder, Archimedes, Downpour, and Gramps. Casino? (They raised hands) Five. Gilda, Icky, Armarant, Trigger, and Nutsy. Celestial Casino? (They raised hands) Four. Ember, Silverstream, Ballista, and Quartz. And that leaves the Buffet with Crane, me, Big Mama, Windgust, Batty, Dinky and Boomer, making the Buffet team seven. Have I left anyone out?
  • Icky:... Where's Uncle Waldo?

Cutaway

  • Uncle Waldo: (He was passed out and being carried by Tigress, hiccupping)

Cloud Tunnels

  • Icky: Ah, whatever, I don't think the drunkard CAN fly.
  • Gallus: Anyone else? Are we leaving any one out of the teams?
  • Gaster: (Dubbed as Brian) Whoa, wait, wait a minute. The teams are mostly 5s and 4s, right? Why does the buffet team have 7 members?
  • Thorax: Yeah, I think I may've miscounted. So, I guess it's a make-up.
  • Smolder: "Well 51, or whatever our real number is, isn't an easy number to even out to fives and fours. Your bound to be left with an odd number anyway."
  • Rainbow Dash: Not that it even matters... No pun intended. Break! (They did that)

Sphinx Casino

  • The group arrived in an egyption-themed vegasy like place with slot machines and other forms of gambling entertainment from a smally opened latch as several Changey parols were present.
  • Gilda: "(Quietly) As if on cue, there's some guards here."
  • Icky: "(Quietly) Well there goes that plan to have some fun here."
  • Armarant: "(Quietly) Not that any of us would've allowed ya anyway."
  • Trigger: "(Quietly) No kidding. Any sound even from the farthest part of this place would get attention either way."
  • Nutzy: "(Quietly) Also, this is a seri-us mission anyways, Icky."
  • Gilda: "..... (Quietly) We're gonna need a plan."
  • Amarant: "(Quietly) If I may, Ma'am, I am a desendent of dragons bred by ponies to fight in battles."
  • Gilda: (Quietly) Wait, really?
  • Icky: "(Quietly) Gilda, it was perfectly established in The Last Hurrah of Garble that-"
  • Gilda: "(Quietly) Before you say it, ya have to keep in mind that cause it was established in the episode, doesn't nessersarly mean WE KNEW ABOUT IT?!"
  • Icky: "(Quietly) Well it's also to make sure MSM doesn't forget about that and-"
  • Amarant: (Quietly) "AHEM! For the Griffin's question: What, did you think my quadruped nature was a disability? Anyway, I learned a lot about stragities from my grand parents."
  • Icky: "(Quietly) Lay it on us, Amary."
  • Trigger: (Quietly) Well whatever plan you've got, Ol' Betsy's here to back us up. (Accidentally fires an arrow as everyone dodges, and the guards run away from the arrow out of the casino)
  • Gilda: Trigger, what're ya tryin' to do, get us caught?! (Bonks him on the head)
  • Trigger: Just doin' my duty, Gilda.
  • Icky: "Oh nice going jackass?! Not even 10 SECONDS IN, and already this is going swimmingly?! I mean, not that I didn't see this coming since you're on our team, but still!"
  • Armarant: "Don't worry, my grandparents knew stragities in case of risks of getting caught."
  • Icky: "Oh thank Christ!"
  • Armarant: "Just follow me."

Some minutes later...

  • Some riot-gear Changeys bursted into the casino and prepared for a fight......
  • Riot Gear Changey Squad Leader: "..... Remember your orders, team. Be careful of anything suspitious. Search the premises! (The Changeys spread out)"
  • Riot Gear Changey Squad Member 1: "(Checks out every section of the slot machine rows as throughohly as he can)."
  • Gilda: (Quietly) Well I hope you're happy with yourself, Clumsy Wings! Now not only will it be harder to sneak around, but they'll get Labrum's attention.
  • Trigger: "(Quietly) It was an accsident! Betsy can misfire sometimes!"
  • Icky: (Quietly) Oh, don't blame that weapon for that trigger finger of yours!
  • Armarant: "(Quietly) Focus! And follow my lead, closely."
  • Trigger: "(Quietly) It still AIN'T my fault!"
  • Gilda: (Quietly) Well afterward, you can either get a new crossbow, or you can just work on your trigger finger. (They left after Armarant)
  • The Riot Gear Changeys still look about and around.
  • RGCSL: "..... Anything to report?"
  • Riot Gear Changey Squad: "So far nothing, Sir."
  • RGCSL: Well keep looking. Remember protocol, we don't stop until we find the source.
  • All Squad: Yes, sir. (They searched the place)
  • Icky: "(Quietly) Good grief, these guys ARE compident minions!"
  • Nutsy: (Quietly) Uh, Armarant, don't you reckon we gonna give them change-ponies a distraction? (The rest of the team looks at him) I know, I know. "Nutsy, button yer beak."
  • Icky: "(Quietly) Actselly dude, it's kinda brillient, espeically from you. Granted, we can't actselly show ourselves too these guys cause they're too compident to mess around with usual Louger shenanigans."
  • Gilda: (Quietly) I have an idea. Icky, how'd you like to get a jackpot. (Pulls the lever on a slot machine) Go, go, go! Scatter! (The team scatters)
  • Riot Gear Changey Squad Leader: THAT COULD BE THEM!? Don't lose them!
  • The Squad arrived at the shorce of the noise and found nothing.....
  • RGCSL: "...... These basturds are being sneaky now. We'll have to be even more careful and respondsive."
  • Armarant: Just follow my lead. (They snuck around and caused the forces to run around in circles)
  • RGCSL: WHERE ARE YOU?! SHOW YOURSELVES, OR I'M REPORTING YOUR ACTIVITY TO LABRUM!!
  • Armarant: Boo! (The leader screamed as the forces rammed into him accidentally and knocked him and themselves out cold)... That's how it's done.
  • Gilda: You sneaky winged lizard.
  • Armarant: "Well try not to enjoy this for long. A prolonged absince will get attention. So we need a quick exit."
  • Icky: "Well likely the frontdoor's out of the question, because, obvious reasons."
  • Armarant: I can find us one. Follow me. (They start to leave, but not before he gets poked by one of Trigger's arrows) Wait... Trigger, is the safety on Ol' Betsy?
  • Trigger: You bet it is.
  • Armarant: (Dubbed as the Sherriff of Nottingham) That's what I'm afraid of. You go first. (They left)

Celestial Casino

  • A bright and shiny gold-plated casino was seen as a large platinum statue of Celestia stood at the center and slot machines, rolettes, and other gambling games were everywhere.
  • Another Latch in the backstage of a large and beautiful entertainment stage, as the group saw more Changeys.
  • Ember: "..... (Quietly) Crud monkeys committing suicide in a sawmill. These guys DO know what they're doing."
  • Silverstream: "(Quietly) Ya know, apart from the corrupted ponies, this place is actselly beautiful."
  • Quartz: "(Quietly) I once read that the guy who founded this place, REALLY loved Celestia."
  • Ember: (Quietly) No duh. Where else did it's name come from?
  • Ballista: "(Quietly) I must question on why Celestia would allow her name be besmirched as a name of a casino."
  • Ember: "(Quietly) Actselly, Yeah. I mean, I kinda thought Celestia was too humble to have her image plastered onto something."
  • Quartz: "(Quietly) Oh ponies put the princesses name on everything, and almost always without their direct consent. Heck, there was even a fashion line named after her, Luna, and Twilight."
  • Silverstream: "(Quietly) None for Candence?"
  • Quartz: "(Quietly) Oh, (Brings out a Rarity's Bountque Magazene), Candence is the star of her own line of.... (Opens the Magazene to Silverstream's face) Nightwear."
  • Silverstream's face blushed as her wings opened up!
  • Silverstream: "..... (Quietly)..... That....... Is really..... Really..... Kinda naughty."
  • Ember: "(Quietly) Hey, can we TRY to at least ACT like we're taking this seriously?"
  • Ballista: (Quietly) This is probably as seriously as you're gonna get, your highness.
  • Ember: (Quietly) Whatever. Now, how to get these asshats out of here?
  • Silverstream: (Quietly) Those 'asshats' are ponies turned this way.
  • Quartz: (Quietly) Wait, can't you undo and detect magical ailments?
  • Silverstream: (Quietly) You heard Chrysalis and Throx. One, I can't use magic cause of the magidranium. Two, this magic is too strong to undo.
  • Ember: (Quietly) Well congratulations on having your one power being rendered useless... Again.
  • Silverstream: (Quietly) Oh, what, you can't breath fire, that stuff is magical too.
  • Ember: (Quietly) Just shut your beakhole and work with me here. We need to deal with these guys.
  • Ballista: (Quietly) Well we can't use magic or our fire breath. So, it all comes down to stealth.
  • Ember: (Quietly) That's kinda what we're WHISPERING FOR!!!!
  • Ballista: (Quietly) Just let me handle this. (She crept around the casino ceiling)
  • The Changeys hissed and snarled about.
  • One Changey was seen curiously looking at a jar of complimentary mints, and proceeded to slowly take one.
  • Chnagey 1: "Nom nom nom..... (Realisation)...... Ohhhhhh. This s***'s good! (Shoves head into jar and starts eating the mints!)."
  • Changey 2: "(Looks at him) Dude, what're you doing?! Ya need to focus?!"
  • Changey 1: "(Jar stuck on head) Huh? Oh, sorry, I just tried these weird but tasty candy rocks called, "Mi-ents". They're not half bad."
  • Changey 2: "We're suppose to be on guard here for the misfits..... AND TAKE THAT JAR OFF YOUR HEAD?! (Pulls it off!)"
  • Changey 1: "Okay okay, sheesh! (Resumes patrol)"
  • Ballista: (She snuck around and managed to isolate and knock out all the Changeys in the casino one-by-one)... (Quietly) And that's how it's done.
  • Quartz:... (Silverstream claps softly) I swear if I didn't know you, I'd call you a showoff.
  • Ember: "Good job, Ballista. Now, let's get going. We're gonna need an alternate exit from this since the front door's obviously a bad idea."
  • Quartz: "Good idea."
  • The group proceeded to do such.

Luner Night Club.

  • A very blue-lighted Night Club filled with Luna memberabillia was seen as a stage depicing Luna in the night was seen.
  • A stage latch openedly softly, as some Changeys were seen patrolling.
  • Barktrot: "(Quietly) Those guards would make any exit from here difficult."
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Quietly) Crap! Chrysalis and Throx were NOT lying about how much Labrum covers his ass!"
  • Scalio: "(Quietly-ish) Ohhhhhhh, pretty lights."
  • Barktrot: "(Quietly and sternful) Please be quiet, idiot?! Talking any louder then we are doing now would risk capture!"
  • Fluttershy: "(Quietly) Oh my. There's so many of them."
  • Changey Pred and the Sisters were seen as well as Changey Eightball and Hidden were enjoying drinks.
  • Changey Bartender: "What can I get ya douchebags, today?"
  • Pred: "Give us the nectar on the rocks. I'm in a bad mood today after how badly humiliated I was."
  • Chain: "(Hugs the Washout dolls) Dolly dolly, I love my dollies!"
  • Changey Bartender: "Okay, some HoneyDew Necter laced with love, coming up. (The Changey Bartender flew up to a beautiful subterrian flower and began to milk it of nector, then flew up to a captured and chained up Fancy Pants and Fluer.) You two!? Start making out in front of this nector?! (Fancy and Fluer paniclyed did so, as the Changey Bartender had the nector absorb the love around it).... (Flies back to the bar) On the house, mac. Cause I don't think Changelings understand currency yet."
  • Sharp-Pay: "Well they were from underground, so no freaking s***."
  • Pred started to drink the nectar.
  • Pred: "Ahhhhhh.... Well, now I know why bugs are crazy for flowers."
  • Hidden: You mean aside from pollination?
  • Prod: "... Yes. This stuff ain't half bad."
  • Eightball: "That could largely be because we're part bug now."
  • Pred: "Ahhhh, try not to worry about details and worry about drinking your love laced necter, boy."
  • Hidden: "..... This date, could've gone, SO MUCH BETTER?!"
  • Eightball: "OH DON'T YOU START WITH ME?!"
  • Hidden: "WELL EVER CONSIDER THAT MAYBE THIS IS WHAT YOUR DIPS*** DAD TRIED TO WARN YA ABOUT?!"
  • Eightball: "Hey, at least we're alive?! I still count this as being lucky?!"
  • Hidden: "WE'RE BASICLY SLAVES, YOU IDIOT?!"
  • Eightball: "Hidden, your not being positive?! So we're bascly stuck working for a rogue elder class Changeling, so what?! At least Labrum knows that stuff about loving each other being cannibalistic is garbage!"
  • Hidden: "But why does he still want love to be taken from ponies?!"
  • Eightball: "Well, I think it's been implied that they might have their own equilent to the Storm King down there, or something. This s*** could only be because they want to get even with him."
  • Hidden: "AM I SERIOUSLY THE ONLY ONE MAKING SENSE?!"
  • Pred: "Ahhhhh, that's just because the Changeling part of ya hasn't delfelupted yet. You'll come to respect Labrum's ways soon enough."
  • Hidden: "THAT'S RICH, COMING FROM YOU?! YOU AND THE OTHERS ENDED UP BEING SUBVERTED BY THIS CURSE TOO EASILY?!"
  • Pred: "Hey, careful, easy with that talk. Ya don't want the hive being given an impression that your pulling a Thorax on us, do ya? Because Labrum WILL put defient types in loyalty cocoons if he's given that impression. That nasty stuff will turn ya into a mindless hive-mind drone! So easy on the freedom of speech and obey our new overlord, will ya?"
  • Rainbow Dash: (Quietly) Oh, man. How do we get past them? (Suddenly finds Fluttershy missing) Uh, Fluttershy? (Sees Fluttershy sneaking toward Pred and the sisters, but Rainbow scoops her up) Flutters! What are you, nuts?!
  • Fluttershy: "(Quietly) I was only trying to help Pred."
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Quietly) Fluttershy, don't forget. These ponies are not exactly ponies anymore. Under Labrum's freaky spell, well.... They're like Insecta, but not about protecting bugs. Even Pred is not himself for now. (Sees Chain fondling with the dolls)..... Though it's hard to say the same with Chain, honestly. I suppose she's the same either way."
  • Fluttershy: "(Quietly) But Hidden doesn't seem too happy about it."
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Quietly) Well like what Chrysalis and Throx said about...... What they said earlier. Hidden is still herself because the spell's being a bit slow. Soon enough, she'll be exactly like them. Flutters, I know you care for these guys, but, our best chance to help them is to not let them CATCH us, AND to find a way to reverse this and beat Labrum!"
  • Fluttershy: ".... (Quietly) How ironic that you reacted very upset about Scootaloo turning into one, yet here you are-"
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Quietly) I have to stop you there before ya say something that'll make me blow up! Scoot's, different. She still has her normal self in, that form. Pred obviously got under the complete spell at this point, and so as the others..... Chain and Hidden being debatable. Just, try to work with us on this, okay?"
  • Fluttershy: (Quietly) Mmmmm... ooooohhhh... okay.
  • Rainbow Dash: (Quietly) Good.
  • Barktrot: (After Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy managed to return quietly) (Quietly) So, Rainbow, you're the Wonderbolt, what's the plan?
  • Rainbow Dash: "(Quietly) Well, I would've ask you to do a spell or something, but the Magidranium has likely made that a no go. So we're gonna have to use some Wonderbolt tactics here."
  • Scalio: "(Quietly) Uhhh, like what?"
  • Rainbow Dash: (Quietly) Watch and learn. (She sneaks in trying to cut out the lights, but Pred was the only one to catch her with his improved senses and toss his sword at her) YAAH!!
  • Pred: Nice try, Speedy. You're in big trouble now.
  • Rainbow Dash: (Chuckles innocently)
  • Pred: SOUND THE CALL!!
  • Fluttershy: PRED, STOP!! (Everyone noticed her)
  • Pred:... Fluttershy?
  • Fluttershy: Please, Pred, stop.
  • Pred:... Sound the ca-
  • Fluttershy: EVERYPONY STOP!! Don't alert Labrum! This is not you-
  • Pred: SOUND, THE CALL!!!
  • Hidden Shadow: (She and Eightball knocked out all the Changeys)... Daddy, listen to-
  • Pred: THIS IS NOT YOUR CONCERN!!! AND HOW DARE YOU BETRAY LABRUM?!?
  • Hidden Shadow: YOU'RE BETRAYING YOURSELF!!! Fluttershy loves you, and so do I. This is not you. You're Pred Judu Des. You're above the control of non-ponies. You have to-
  • Pred: (Slaps her, surprising everyone)... That is NO way to talk to me. A daughter respects her father and does as he says.
  • Hidden Shadow:... Well... I guess you're not the dad I loved after all. You were always weak.
  • Pred: Did you hear me, young lady?
  • Hidden Shadow: YOU'RE NOT EVEN MY REAL DAD!!! You betrayed the love you have for me and Fluttershy. I beg of you, fight this Changeling instinct. (Fluttershy was sobbing, causing Pred's Changeling eyes to become his pony eyes again)
  • Pred: Fluttershy, I... I'm so- (Gets his Changeling eyes again) NOT SORRY!!! Why should I care about a shy little pushover like you? (Pony-eyed) OH, I WILL NOT TALK ABOUT MY BEST FRIEND'S GRANDDAUGHTER LIKE THAT!! (Changeling-eyed) PURE LOVE IS NOT ETERNAL!!! (Pony-eyed) BUT IT'S MORE EFFICIENT IN GETTING FOOD THAN STEALING IT!! (Changeling-eyed) THAT IS NOT THE WAY OF THE CHANGELING!! (Pony-eyed) I AM NOT A CHANGELING!!!! FLUTTERSHY, HELP ME!!! (Changeling-eyed) STAY AWAY FROM ME YOU LITTLE WHELP!!! (Pony-eyed) I CAN'T CONTROL MYSELF!!! THIS WRETCHED CHANGELING BIOLOGY IS RUINING ME!!! (Changeling-eyed) SHE IS NOTHING!!! (Pony-eyed) SHE IS EVERYTHING!!! (Fluttershy thought fast and hugged him, causing his Changeling side to slowly wilt away...... (Pony-eyed)... You saved me.
  • Fluttershy: See, Rainbow Dash? Sometimes there's other ways.
  • Eightball: We could've told you that. We were able to quell our Changeling instinct with our own love.
  • Scalio: "Then why were you two fighting before?"
  • Eightball: "We're both in grouchy moods about how I should've listened to dad. Obviously, my curse of luck, works mainly for gambling. Not much for keeping me from entering sticky situations. And dad is SO not gonna let me hear the end of it."
  • Hidden Shadow: It didn't stop them entirely, but it's delaying it's progress. But know that love won't hold them for long. You guys may as well go on without us. Trust me, we might end up slowing you down.... Or worse. I recimmend you take the back exit, the front door in front of heavy Changey traffic."
  • Barktrot: "Understandable. See if you can keep Pred pre-occupied. And if the spell takes full control of him, do the best you can to slow him down."
  • Eightball: "Understood. Good luck guys."

Cadenza Spa

  • A beautiful love theme Spa was seen.
  • A latch gently opened to show Twilight's group.
  • Ocellus: "(Quietly) This place is beautiful."
  • Frostbite: "(Quietly) This is really a romanitc get-away, and then some, wink wink, nudge nudge?"
  • Spike: "(Quietly) Kinda makes me wonder who would dedicate an entire spa for Candence."
  • Twilight: "(Quietly) I came here with Rarity once.... (Sighs), I had the misfortune of running into it's owner."
  • Spike: "(Quietly) Is it that Buck Withers guy?"
  • Twilight: "(Quietly) You would think that, but no. It's not. Besides, he's married now and is on better terms with him. I was more refering to the father of Star Tracker, Blackhole Tracker..... He's..... A netourious critic to the Princesses."
  • Spike: "(Quietly) Oh boy. And I thought Octavia's dad was a princess hating jerk."
  • Frostbite: "Would he be happen to be a dark purple pony with a blackhole cutie mark?"
  • Twilight: "(Quietly) Yes, why?"
  • Frostbite: "(Points to that Star Tracker and his father, Blackhole Tracker, are seen entangled in Changeling Goop).....  (Quietly) Found him."
  • The Changeys hissed and snarled laughing.
  • Blackhole Tracker: "..... WELL YOU UNGRATEFUL DOLTS CAN FORGET ABOUT HEARTH'S WARMING BONUS?!"
  • Star Tracker: "Um, dad? I don't think the employees are, in their right minds."
  • Blackhole Tracker: "Star, quiet! Adults are talking?!"
  • Star Tracker: "I'M PRACTICLY 19?!"
  • Blackhole Tracker: DON'T YOU TALK BACK TO YOUR FATHER LIKE THAT!!
  • Star Tracker: DON'T YOU IGNORE YOUR SON LIKE THAT!!!
  • Changey #1: SILENCE!! You two are going to be one of us.
  • Blackhole Tracker: OVER MY DEAD BODY!!! (The Changeys turned into trolls)... Meep.
  • Changey #2: Damn right Meep. Now come with us.
  • Ocellus:... (Quietly) Well shapeshifting for me is out of the equation, so, what's the plan?
  • Twilight: (Quietly) Well, given that I don't have magic, Spike can't use fire, and Frostbite is only a dactyl, I think we need to improvise.
  • Ocellus: "(Quietly) Well, I do have the next best thing. We could try to use their newfound Changeling biology against them. We do something so lovy-dovy that they start to lose themselves."
  • Spike: "(Quietly) Ugh, really? I mean, I know it's to use their biology against them, but, does it have to be something so degrating?"
  • Ocellus: (Quietly) Not to sound rude, but, you got any better opitions?
  • Spike: "(Quietly)..... Ugh, my inner man-hood's gonna hate me for this."
  • Frostbite: "(Quietly) I feel for ya, mate. My pride is gonna take a hit from this too, but it has to be done."
  • Twilight: (Quietly) Well as long as that manhood doesn't include the lack of believing in profanity.
  • Frostbite: (Quietly) Let's just get this over with.
  • Twilight: Well... Never thought I'd ever do this again... But... (She becomes more provocative and sings this as the Changeys cheer)
Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend

Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend

  • Twilight: (Whispering to Star and Blackhole) Sit tight. We're getting you out of here.
  • Blackhole Tracker:... No. Just leave. I don't want anything to do with you.
  • Twilight: (Sighs and kept singing and dancing while Spike and the others crept in)
  • Blackhole: (As the song ended) I SAID I DON'T NEED HELP!!!! (His yelling caught the Changeys' attention)
  • Spike:... Really?
  • Frostbite: (Sighs and knocks out the Changeys as they retreated into the alleys)...
  • Twilight: Are you two okay?
  • Star Tracker: Yeah, thanks to you-
  • Blackhole Tracker: YOU IGNORANT MULE!! I TOLD YOU TO LEAVE ME!!!
  • Twilight: What was I supposed to do, let them mutate you?
  • Spike: Yeah, she saved your life, pal.
  • Blackhole Tracker: Oh, please, she's still just a stubborn brat that will resort to forcing your issues on people who didn't have to do squat for you as if the world revolved around you, at the expense of THEIR OWN PROBLEMS, by disobeying, ignoring, taking your problems on everypony else, and worst of all, STEALING!!!!
  • Twilight: Oh, please don't be that pony right now.
  • Blackhole Tracker: I'm going to, deal with it. My son looked up to you and disappointed his own father who was gravely upset at the PR nightmare you caused with the hippogriffs. Then you snap at and injure my son, BECAUSE YOU MISSED A RARE EVENT?!?
  • Twilight: IT WAS AN ACCIDENT!!!
  • Blackhole Tracker: I don't want ANY excuses. There ARE no accidents. You chose to not make a compromise and you brought that incident upon yourself. You enraged yourself, and took that rage ON MY SON!! You have nopony else to blame but yourself. You only proved me right to my son when I told him that you are a terrible Princess of Friendship. For a Princess of Friendship, you still know so LITTLE about it.
  • Twilight: You're seriously doing this, aren't you? You're going to be just like so many others that criticize my title?!
  • Blackhole Tracker: Yes.
  • Frostbite: That's a fine thank you for SAVING YOUR LIFE!!!
  • Blackhole Tracker: Maybe I wasn't being clear... I DID NOT WANT TO BE SAVED BY THIS DISAPPOINTMENT!!!! YOU ARE SELFISH, IDIOTIC, MISTRUSTING, A CLUELESS C**T WHO DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE LAST THING ABOUT FRIENDSHIP, IS A JOKE WHO JUDGES BOOKS BY THEIR COVER, EVEN AFTER BEING A BOOKWORM, AND FOR THE VALEDICTORIAN OF CELESTIA'S SCHOOL FOR GIFTED UNICORNS, IS REQUIRED SOCIAL LESSONS ON A REGULAR BASIS!!! YOU DON'T DESERVE TO BE THE PRINCESS OF FRIENDSHIP!!!
  • Twilight:...... (Does Cadence's breathing technique)... You know, sir... It's hurtful insensitive words like that, are why Equestria AND the world, are falling apart. You think being the Princess of Friendship changes you as a person? Friendship IS magic, but it's NOT life-altering magic that completely cures stress issues. Nopony is perfect just because of their title. I tried to steal that pearl because I thought that my friends weren't taking the mission seriously and treating it like a field trip, and that Queen Novo essentially wasted our death-defying journey that was meant to be Luna's by order of Celestia. WE ALMOST DROWNED GETTING TO HER!!!! That PR nightmare could've been started even if I HADN'T tried to steal it. And that incident with your son? My parents ignored the #1 Rule of signing a contract: ALWAYS READ THE FINE PRINT. Thus Iron Will completely capitalized my presence, and thus ruined what the trip was SUPPOSED to be. I was looking forward to that trip as a way to forget the mistakes I made with Novo, and instead, it was completely thrown out the window because my parents didn't get the consequences of their choice. I WANT YOU TO IMAGINE HOW THAT FEELS!!! Like it or not, we saved your life, and if you are too arrogant and stubborn to be thankful for it because of your grudge, THEN MAYBE YOU DON'T DESERVE TO BE THE HEAD OF THE SPA THAT IS MEANT TO REPRESENT THE FORGIVING AND LOVING NAME, OF MY SISTER-IN-LAW!!!! (She kicks a trash can) Now come on. (They left as Spike looked angrily at Blackhole)
  • Spike: Critics of my surrogate mom like YOU make me sick. (Lashes his tail at him) See if I ever take Rarity back here with me. (Leaves with the group)
  • Blackhole Tracker looked on with a shocked face.....
  • Star Tracker: "..... Sorry if this is impudent to you, dad, but, they're not wrong, ya know. You really need to learn not look a gifthorse in the mouth and be thankful to what we have instead of what we should've. We have to remember that Twilight started out as a flawed mortal like you and me. We can't expect her to be as flawless as the Celestial family. Heck, even THEY can have bad days. I hope you can realise that. (Proceeds to walk off to make a contemporay hideaway.)"
  • Blackhole Tracker looked as if he is starting to do some soul-searching.....

Buffet

  • A glorious giant buffet of cultural foods from around and beyond Equestria are seen.
  • Another latch opened slowly, as some Changeys are seen placing captured ponies into cocoons.
  • Gallus: "(Quietly) And just like that, there goes my appitight."
  • Windgust: "(Quietly) Yeesh, why does anything involving bugs or bug folk have to be so, disgusting, ya know?"
  • Big Mama: "(Quietly) There can be grosser things, child."
  • Boomer: "(Quietly) So much for a fun time in the buffet."
  • Dinky: "(Quiely) Good grief, and I thought Icky never takes things seriously."
  • Boomer: (He looks around and sees something) (Quietly) Hey, hey, hey Dinky, look!
  • Dinky: (Quietly) What, what? (Looks around and sees a caterpillar crawling on the floor) Hey, how'd he get in there?
  • Boomer: (Quietly) Guess tonight won't be a total loss after all! (Laughs until Dinky closes his beak)
  • Dinky: (Quietly) SHH! Button yer beak, will ya? Remember that there's bad guys here!"
  • Batty: "(Quietly) (Gasps)..... Oh this place has some BAD cockarouches. I'll have to write a review about this."
  • Crane: "(Quietly) Focus, everyone. We need to find a way to help out those captured ponies."
  • Gallus: "(Quietly) Do we have to? We know the process of love being sucked doesn't kill the suck-ee!"
  • Big Mama: "(Quietly) True, but remember that love is a magic enhancer. Those bugs will get strong from doing it. And it'll make problems worse."
  • Windgust: "(Quietly) Also, it'd be a REAL d*** move not to, ya know what I'm saying?"
  • Gallus: "..... (Quietly) As much of a fair point that is, what's even the plan anyway? The Magdranium might have an effect on Crane's chi thing, so he's limited to just wing-smacking them, and that could be helpful against these guys for so long!"
  • Crane: "(Quietly) You DO know that chi is not the same thing as magic, right?"
  • Gallus: (Quietly) Well, it behaves like magic.
  • Crane: (Quietly) But it's not.
  • Windgust: "(Quietly) But didn't we learn at that time when we met Pang Bing that-"
  • Crane: "(Quietly) I know, I know. Just keep in mind that chi deviated from the magic pools so much that it may as well no longer be like it anymore. And besides, chi can get too much attention which we cannot afford. That's why we're gonna need some straitgy here. Windgust, Gallus, you two, for both being a fast flying griffin and a strong dactyl, I'm gonna need your help diverting the Changey's attention and leading them to traps. The rest will have to be the ones that take the captured ponies to safety."
  • Gallus: "(Quietly) Whatever happened to not letting these guys see us even once?!"
  • Crane: "(Quietly) Let's be honest. This is an SAF cronicles episode. Us doing sneak-ins are rarely successful. There's bound to be mistakes anyway. So, we may as well roll with it."
  • Gallus: "(Quietly) That..... Strangely makes sense, for some reason."
  • Dinky: (Quietly) And yet how easy is it for them to yell like a bat having a stroke and alerting everyone when they see us?
  • Batty: (Quietly) HEY!!
  • Dinky: (Quietly) So, we can't be seen. A single yell from those grub pony things will have us trapped in the hive and assimilated.
  • Crane: (Quietly) Well we don't exactly have a choice here.
  • Dinky: (Quietly) Actually we do. We're in the belly of the beast here.
  • Crane: (Quietly) Just trust me on this one.
  • Big Mama: "(Quietly) We may as well, or those poor Equites are stuck being litteral energy drinks for the rest of their lives."
  • Dinky: (Sighs, quietly) We're bug paste.
  • Gallus: (He and Windgust flew out and diverted the Changeys away, but some were smart enough to stay)...
  • Crane:... Oh dear.
  • Batty: Clever girl.
  • Boomer: Pretty sure some of them are boys, Hoohoohoo.
  • Crane: Well let's just wing it. (They caught them off guard and knocked them out)...
  • Dinky: Alright, let's peck these guys outta here.
  • Boomer: Hoohoohoo, tasty cocoon.
  • Dinky: Yeah, don't think even Timon and Pumbaa would eat that.
  • Crane: Guys, you don't have to eat it. Just tear it open with your beaks. (Boomer pecks a hole in a cocoon and Dinky tears it open freeing the slimed ponies)
  • Pony: Eweweweweeewwww!!
  • Pony 2: "Yeech. Remind me to never go inside a Changeling goop cocoon ever again."
  • Other ponies: NEVER GO INSIDE A CHANGELING GOOP COCOON EVER AGAIN!
  • Pony 2: ".... Ever heard of an expression, people?"
  • Gallus: "Sorry folks, buffet's close due to infestation. Please exit to the nearest hidey-hole until the latest Equestrian threat of the week is dealt with."
  • 3rd pony: "Ordenarly, I ain't much to take advice from greedmongering griffins, but in light of a crisis, I'll make an exception."
  • Gallus: "...... Excuse, me?"
  • Crane: "Gallus, calm down, I'll handle this.... (To the pony) Sir, please keep in mind that this griffin is a student of Twilight's school of friendship, and, he's kinda sensitive about Griffins' recent negative reputation in Equestria."
  • 3rd Pony: ".... Ohhh.... My bad kid. Nothing personal, by all means. It's just, a lot of griffins are, misproportionally greedy. I mean, even when they're not part of the Griffin Mafia or criminals of their own right, they're abit stingy! Their inated greed even redused Griffinstone to be a dishastor area because of losing some old glorifived cup, I mean-"
  • Gallus cartoonishly blew up with rage on his head as a mushroom cloud was seen!
  • 4th Pony: "..... Honey, maybe it's best you just shut up."
  • 3rd Pony: "..... Yeah, good point."
  • Windgust: "(Grabs Gallus by the shoulder) Hey, cool it, Kid. (Gallus looks at Windgust) This is kinda why Sparkle even made that school. To give people like him a chance to reflect on their views on other races. Get that stuff like that out of yer mind. Now cool it with the forest fire on yer head, huh?"
  • Gallus calmed down, though still abit angry....
  • Gallus: "(Sighs)..... I really wish Goldstone gets thrown to Tartarus for his bulls***."
  • 3rd Pony: "Oh don't even get me started on that debt s***! I- (The 4th Pony covered his mouth)...."
  • 4th Pony: "..... We'll just, get going now."
  • Gallus: Yeah, you better. You just started making me regret saving you. Just go before I change my mind entirely. (They did that as the heroes looked disappointed at him)... What? I'm a griffin. Being mean is kinda what we do.
  • Crane: (Sighs)
  • Windgust: "... Kid, it ain't much of a wonder why you're in that school."

Puffy Cloud Hotel

  • A very puffy area was seen as a latch gently open, as sleeping Changeys were seen.
  • Noser: "(Quietly) Oh great. They really are using this as a bedroom."
  • Billy: "(Quietly) Did it really had to be something so on the nose like "The Puffy Cloud Hotel"? S*** like that is why other races have the wrong ideas about ponies!"
  • Friend Owl: "(Quietly) Oh hush up."
  • Somnambula: "(Quietly) Any millaterry straigties, Flash Magnus?"
  • Flash Magnus: "(Quietly) Well, it looks like we don't nessersarly need to fight. We just need to sneak out, very quietly."
  • Noser: "(Quietly) I can't say with confidence that these guys are heavy sleepers. And even if this place is made of clouds, it's not noise proof! Clouds always make that "Poof" sound when ya touch them!"
  • Billy: (Quietly) Well, there any way to wreck their s***?
  • Somnambula: "(Quietly) Keep in mind that any such things would have to be quiet as a tomb mouse."
  • Friend Owl: "(Quietly) Actselly, I don't think violence is nessersary. Why not just put earmuffs or earplugs on them?"
  • Billy: (Quietly) I'm pretty sure they'd notice us doing that even if they're asleep.
  • Noser: (Quietly) Not to mention any one of them could notice us and wake up.
  • Friend Owl: (Quietly) Then can we just make them more sleepy, if not through magic, but through something else?
  • Somnambula: (Quietly) That... Could work.
  • Billy: (Quietly and with mockingly innocent eyes) Oh, what, are you little children ponies going to sing them a lullaby?
  • Noser: "(Quietly).... Dude, even for our standards, that's rather d***ish."
  • Somnambula: (Quietly) With these. (Brings out tropical flowers with fuchsia petals and orange stems)...
  • Noser/Billy:... (Quietly) Flowers?
  • Somnambula: (Quietly) Not just any flowers. Somnambular Blooms. They are commonly found in the Southern regions and several tropical isles off the western coast of Equestrian borders, they were cultivated by my people and in the city of which was named after me. They lull ponies to sleep with their strong perfume, though some affect them into sleepwalking.
  • Billy:... (Quietly) You've seriously been carrying them around before this whole debacle? What were you going to use them for, to prank somepony?
  • Somnambula: (Quietly) Actually Meadowbrook wanted them before this. But there's plenty more where these came from. Now hold your breath. (They did that as she opened the containment jars and blew the petals around causing the Changeys to drift deeper to sleep)...
  • Flash Magnus: "Good call, Som."
  • Somnambula: My pleasure. Now we have a job to do.
  • The group left.

The Storage House

  • A well-suited Minotaur was seen transporting in a large dark-looking box with alot of chains around it.
  • Flim: "I trust that Labrum's little gift from, our anomamous friend, has arrived safely, Mr. Blackus Bull?"
  • Mr. Blackus the Minotaur: "(Thick Hebrew Accent) You have the garrentie of the Minotaur Black Market that the little surprise for the Space Messiah has arrived safe and sound. But let me tell ya, it was NOT easy to dig this hunk of junk off the ground of that old abandon Mothron war colony. I mean, the Alicorns did a NUMBER on that place! You could BARELY reckindise it as a building."
  • Flam: "But why is the container so heavily wrapped?"
  • Mr. Blackus: "Cause that tincan gave us alot of goyum. It was more trouble then it was worth. But my, best custamer, has already paid in advance of finding the thing, and paid very good. Now I know why. No wonder people don't wanna mess with Mothron stuff. Very scary stuff."
  • The box started to bounce abit, making Mr. Blackus and the two Transport Minotaurs jump in fear, surprising the Flimflam bros. a bit.
  • Mr. Blackus: "..... See? Scary."
  • Flim: "... Hmm.... Perhaps it would be more adviseable we leave the machine in there until we can get Labrum here. He might be a bit more, capable, of quelling the thing into loyalty."
  • Mr. Blackus: "Personally, I would recimmend just leaving that thing in there, but since you need it to deal with a Space Messiah, then, proceed at yer own periol."
  • Flam: "Now, we're going to seek out Labrum. Can we trust you guys to keep watch of our secret weapon while we get to him?"
  • Mr. Blackus: "Yo, ya mean I have to babysit the thing? (The box jumped again, scaring the Minotaurs)..... Cause, it's kinda mad for capturing it."
  • Flim: "Oh relax, just make sure it stays in the box until we get Labrum here. He'll know what to do."
  • Flim and Flam: "He always knows what to do. (The duo left)."
  • Transporter 1: "Boss, do we have to?"
  • Transporter 2: "I don't feel safe around that, thing! It beaten even the strongest Minotaurs into submission! I can still remember their crying?!"
  • Mr. Blackus: "Hey I don't like it either, ya masuginas, but our speical client has asked us to supply Labrum this bad boy! The minute Labrum has it under control, we can THEN leave to enjoy our well-earned wealth, AND that you guys will get raises from this. Just try to ignor it when- (The crate jumps again) GAH!?...... When it does THAT!"
  • Transporter 2: That's like a seal ignoring a hungry shark. That is not garrentied to end well.
  • Mr. Blackus: Okay, seriously?! Let's just.... Use this as an oppertunity for a smoke break. Get our minds off of this thing, okay?
  • Mr. Blackus and the Transporters proceed to enter smoke breaks, as Cynder's Group were seen in the latch.
  • Gramps: "(Quietly) Aw, shucks. The Minotaur Black Market got involved."
  • Cynder: "(Quietly) And it sounded like Labrum earned an anomamous friend."
  • Archimedes: "(Quietly) What senseless ninny would do that, AND get Mothron technology involved?!"
  • Downpour: "(Quietly) A big darn fool, that is."
  • Cynder: "(Quietly) I'm afraid this means that Labrum was warned about Gazelle by likely someone that doesn't want us to resolve this quickly. That means Labrum will prepare for Gazelle as well.... And already has."
  • Downpour: "(Quietly) I reckon we try and undermine it. We can take them cattle-folk!"
  • Cynder: "(Quietly) It's not the Minotaur criminals that concern me! It's what we don't see that makes me concerned. There might be hidden Changey Sentries here. If we just go and attack the Minotaurs, those Sentries will go and warn Labrum."
  • Gramps: "(Quietly) Then what's the next best course of action?"
  • Cynder: "(Quietly) We warn the others about it. We have to warn them that Mothron technology is now involved."
  • Downpour: "(Quietly) Ya sure ya don't wanna prevent that thing from seeing the light of day in advance?"
  • Archimedes: "(Quietly) Take it from the owl of one of the greatest Wizards of Disney's Old World Europe! Anything involving Mothrons and their technology is garrentied to be dangerious! Espeically if it's their robots! It's likely something built to combat Uniters to start with! And those meatheads admited that even their strongest were redused to crying babies just from capturing it! That doesn't sound like something even Avatar Cynder should fight!"
  • Cynder: (Quietly) At least not without help. We must go now. (They left as whatever was inside the crate was roboticly moaning ominously)

Vegas Building

  • Two Changey Guards guard the presidential suite, as Spyro's group arrived in the latch.
  • Thunderclap: "(Quietly) Okay, there's only two chuckle-heads, and, (Does some counting) Five of us. And even with Cozy only a kid, that still leaves..... 4."
  • Smolder: "(Quietly) Yeah, we can take them."
  • Spyro: "(Quietly) Don't underestimate even a favorable situation. Any noise will attract attention. Two guards, will turn to 10 or 20 in seconds."
  • Sparx: "(Quietly) In otherwords, that's a no go on a surprise ambush."
  • Cozy Glow: "(Quietly) If I may..... We can have the Dragonfly fly into the vent next to us and bring back new infomation."
  • Sparx: "(Quietly) Oh why do I always have to be the bug."
  • Cozy Glow: (Quietly giggles) Because you ARE a bug.
  • Sparx:... (Quietly) Smartass.
  • Spyro: (Quietly) Sparx, will you ever learn manners?
  • Sparx: (Quietly) No. Deal with it. Now we have a mission here.
  • Cozy Glow: (Quietly) So why aren't you going?
  • Sparx: (Quietly) Oh I'm sorry, I don't speak smartass kid.
  • Cozy Glow: (Quietly) I'M NO KID!!
  • Sparx: (Quietly) Whatever you say, kid.
  • Cozy Glow: (Quietly) DON'T CALL ME A KID!!
  • Sparx: (Quietly) Hey, did anypony lose a kid? Because there's a kid whining to me in a kid voice about how much they LOVE to be called a kid. Anybody? Free kid right here. First come first serve on the kid. Half-price on kids in Isle 12.
  • Cozy Glow: (Quietly) Call me a kid one more time. See what happens, BUG!!
  • Sparx: (Quietly) Okay, how about infant? Crybaby? Delinquent? Juvenile? Or maybe all of the above?
  • Cozy Glow: (Quietly) Don't make me squash you like the bug you are, BUG!!
  • Sparx: (Quietly) Go ahead. Prove Lord Shen right by murdering a Lodger. Is it a crime to not call a child what she actually is?
  • Spyro: (Quietly) ARE WE SERIOUSLY DOING THIS?!
  • Sparx: (Quietly) She started-
  • Spyro: (Quietly) I don't care who started it, it ends now. Now go.
  • Sparx: (Quietly) Fine, DAAAD!!! (He flew into the vents)

  • A well made straighty map was made in the center of the room as Labrum and some high-ranked Changeys were seen.
  • Labrum: "And then Delta Swarm will strike from behind Canterlot, pass the BARELY threatening defences of Equestria, and then capture the Celestial family! With the power of the sun and moon in our grasp, the Changelings will see an absolute power-grip of Equestria. Imagine it, Changelingifived Alicorns! We'll become UNSTOPPABLE with them!"
  • The High Rankers applauded Labrum.
  • A High-Ranker: "I, just wanna ask something, sir..... What would be your stragity on going after the Christail Empire, given that the Chrisail Heart would be, problematic."
  • Labrum: "Ahhhh, that is why I am saving that scrumbus love factory of an imperial city, best for last. For when I am able to utilised changeling-afived alicorns, togather with them, I will cast an upgraded verson of my already established Changeling Transformation Spell, and turn the WHOLE nation into Hybrids of the Changeling race! Then, Equestria, will become the land of the Changelings! And the rest of the world, OUR GLORIOUS LOVE FARM?! (Laughs manicly!)"
  • A High-Ranker 2: "Permission to speak, sir?"
  • Labrum: "Permission granted."
  • A High-Ranker 2: "..... That "Love Farm" comment, unintentionally sounds kinky."
  • Labrum: "..... Oh get your mind out of the gutter, you dirty boy!"
  • A High-Ranker 3: "..... That sounded kinky too, sir."
George Takei - Oh My

George Takei - Oh My

  • Labrum: "..... Ughhh, obviously my spell did not completely erase the PONY IMMATURITY!? THE SAME IMMATURITY, THAT ALLOWED THE STORM KING TO RAVISH EQUESTRIA EVEN FOR ONLY A BRIEF MOMENT?! Hopefully, my improved spell combined with Alicorn Magic will fix that FOR GOOD?!"
  • A High Ranker 4: "If I may sir, maybe that's because we're only Hybrids and not full-fledge Changelings."
  • Labrum: "(Sighs), I'm aware of this. If only the staff of that purifived traitor Mirage didn't end up missing for ages! That thing could be able to REALLY turn equines into FULL Changelings!"
  • A High Ranker 5: "Well, I hear talk that it's in the school of friendship now under the care of a Spoonbill, so, it's up gor grabs."
  • Labrum was surprised by that.....
  • Labrum: "..... Run that by me again?"
  • High Ranker 5:... The Talisman is in the School of Friendship?
  • Labrum:... Why was I never told about this UNTIL NOW?!?
  • High Ranker 2: Because it never came up.
  • Labrum:... I see these guys needs to work on professionalism too.
  • High Ranker 4: What does that thing even do anyway?
  • Labrum: Well if you MUST know, the Talisman of Mirage is capable of harnessing the literal power of love which is what fuels Changeling magic through the amber quartz in it's hilt. It can enhance a Changeling spell ten fold.
  • High Ranker 6: So you want it to enhance the Transmutation Spell?
  • Labrum: Precisely. So, we'll have the School of Friendship penciled in as well.
  • High Rankers: Yes sir!
  • Sparx was seen in the vents and had over-heard the conversation.
  • Sparx: "..... (Quietly) Oh that is BEYOND bad news. (Flies off.)"

Spyro's group location.

  • Sparx came back.
  • Sparx: "(Quietly) Guys, I have learned something that is the purest definition of bad news! Labrum knows the school has Mirage the Changeling's staff thingy, and is after it now!"
  • Thunderclap: "(Quietly) Well ain't THAT a hurricane of bad news!"
  • Spyro: "(Quietly).... Or maybe..... A blessing in disguise! That thing can enhance Changelings, right."
  • Smolder: "(Quietly) Well, at least, that's what Twilight said it does."
  • Spyro: "(Quietly) Well, just as much as Labrum wants to use it to enhance the spell, we can use it to reverse it."
  • Smolder: "(Quietly) Ohhhh, I get ya. Give Labrum a taste of ambitious irony. Though, that thing likely only works for like, super-pure Changelings."
  • Cozy Glow: "..... (Quietly) I think I know the perfect one for it. Follow me!"
  • The group retreated back into the latch.

Grand Deos Stadium

  • Pharynx's group were already present and at center Arena.
  • Spud: "Okay, we're at the poorly misspelled name statium, now what?"
  • Pharynx: "This would pretty much be the part where we build togather something that'll lure all the Changeys into one spot to capture."
  • Thundra: "So, basicly, we're gonna get their attention now?"
  • Coldfront: "Well, they're part bug, so, why not just build up a huge pile of sugar, or a giant light?"
  • Pharynx: "Changelings are more, nector kinda insects. And yes, we also mainly eat love, but we are capable of physical consumption, FYI. And they only go for a nector of a speical kind of flower that exists only in our subterainian world!"
  • Spud: "Well, what's to say they didn't grow some up here in where it's dark?"
  • Pharynx: "..... Then we're gonna need to take a closer look at that Luna club thing. Then, we're gonna need something to trap these guys in."
  • Coldfront: "Oh! Oh! Like a giant butterfly net?!"
  • Pharynx:... Shut up, Coldfront. That being said, yes, a net would be helpful, just not something as BLANTINGLY obvious!"
  • Spud: "Well, I hear from some friends that actobats can preform here. Surely they might have those "Safety Net" thingies."
  • Vespa: PERFECT! As for the flowers? I know the perfect place nearby to get Lust Orchids. Buuuuut, the heroes on the ground will have to get them for me.
  • Thundra: Figures.
  • Vespa: So, it's up to me. Pharry, look after Thundra and these saps while I'm gone. (Buzzes away)
  • Coldfront: "But, I don't remember ever coming from trees, or electrisity....."
  • Pharynx: ".... Your not the brightest of those five Sauren Birds, are ya?"
  • Coldfront: "FLYING REPTILES, NOT BIRDS?!"
  • Pharynx: "What I just said is what Equestria calls your kind!"
  • Coldfront: ".... Ohhhhh..... Then, yeah, I kinda don't, think straight."
  • Pharynx: "Duly, noted."
  • Spud:... What an excuse to ditch us. The little bug.
  • Pharynx: Look, we have to set up the trap, we have to take what we can take. And do not EVER insult my babe!
  • Spud: Fine, DAAAAAD!!

Ground

  • Throx: Lust Orchids?
  • Chrysalis: You mean those subterranean flowers of ours that grow from love and water? I thought they weren't native to Equestria anymore since the disappearance of the hummingflies.
  • Lord Shen: Hummingflies?
  • Chrysalis: Hummingbird-eqsed flies that pollinate with love in Changeling lands.
  • Shore: Oh, yeah, we learned about them recently. (Takes out a book with this picture in it) Ocellus says they're very adorable pets... If you can get past the venomous stingers that cause extreme lust sprees and ecstasy making them targets for creatures that feed on love like Changelings.
  • Boss Wolf: Jesus.
  • Lightning: "Well why the crud did those flowers and flies vanish?"
  • Throx: "Two words: Fear, Wars. Hummingflies, are not big fans of hatred. So, they left, and Equestrian native Lust Flowers, just died out."
  • Squidward: "It's ALWAYS because of the Fear Wars!"
  • Spongebob: "So, where did they go?"
  • Chrysalis: "HA! If we knew that, do you seriously think the Changelings would've needed to attack to begin with?!"
  • Throx: "Indeed. We could've culptavated on those over-sized pollinators and grow strong on love on THAT!"
  • Sandbar: "Maybe they went somewhere where they can feel safe from the war?"
  • Throx: "Logical enough, but it lacks an explanation why they never came back to Equestria."
  • Yakhalla: "Perhaps this safer place ended up being too inviting."
  • Electross: "Or something's keeping them there."
  • Buzzord: 'Wait a minute! I just realised something.... Why are the rest of the flight capable folk back on ground with us? We CLEARLY saw you lot go with the others!"
  • Skyceria: "We ended up coming back here since they were only going by small number of teams since there was only so many tunnels. It wouldn't've been a good idea to just stick around and risk being spotted by a passing Changey at the wrong place at the wrong time."
  • Mantis: "And that's a plothole fixed!"
  • Lightning: "And yet another Wonderbolt Fight Rainbow Dash owes me. That's THREE ROUNDS now!"
  • Acid Burn: "Lightning, calm down. It was more practical to go into small groups anyways."
  • Chrysalis: "CAN WE RAIL THIS CONVERSATION BACK ONTO THE HUMMINGFLIES?!"
  • Throx: "Ahem!"
  • Chrysalis: "I know, I know, use some tact!"
  • Thorx: "Good. That being said, yes, let us return to more related matters. Alien, define what you mean, by something keeping the Hummingflies from returning?"
  • Electross: "Well, I'm just saying that at this point, the Fear Wars is barely even relivant and that they should've come back ages ago."
  • Gazelle: "Your implying that something, or someone's holding them back?"
  • Electross: "Well, it's only a throey, but since it was brought up that they can be turned into pets, maybe someone who REALLY likes the creatures is holding them back from returning home?"
  • Boss Wolf: So, just to recap, these Hummingflies have venomous stingers that cause lust and ecstasy, but nothing too fatal, right? (Nervously chuckles)
  • Throx: "But of course..... (Boss Wolf sighed)..... But that's only true to Changelings. (Boss Wolf gets nervious)....... Antedotes exist though..... (Boss Wolf sighed in relief). But they're not easy to make and the venom works quick. (Boss Wolf got nervious again).... And it's espeically worse to canines. (Boss Wolf screamed like a bitch!)"
  • Pinkie: "Why's that?"
  • Chrysalis: "Timber Wolves are a common predator to them. So their venom evolved to be VERY nasty to canines."
  • Boss Wolf: B-B-BUT I'M NOT A TIMBER WOLF, SO THERE'S HOPE, RIGHT?!
  • Lord Shen: (Slaps Boss Wolf) KEEP IT TOGETHER, MAN!
  • Chrysalis: Bottom line, you don't want to be stung. The effects lure creatures that feed on love like us by putting them in near-libido. A condition where they expose raw love, in the most random ways possible. The hummingflies need love like us to properly pollinate, like Breezies need magic to keep their pollen from getting bad, and when they had enough the rest goes to love eaters. Let's just say, if you get stung, you'll be in a pleasurable hell.
  • Destiny: Well, last I checked, the hummingflies were last seen in the land of Arcadia, and should be making their by-annual outside the land for pollen of the Lust Orchids. Maybe by following them...
  • Vespa: You'll be able to find some Lust Orchids. But be warned. They don't call them Lust Orchids for nothing. The pollen of them would make a c**t look like a carrion flower.
  • Destiny:... Was that metaphor really necessary?
  • Duke: Well flowers ARE plant vags.
  • Gazelle: Too much info, Duke.
  • Fidget: Is there anything about you Changelings that don't involve love?
  • Destiny: Not really, no.
  • Gazelle: Well, I might as well have a team find the orchids with Destiny. Who's in?
  • Buzzord: "OH?! OH OH OH OH?! PICK ME?! A HUMMING FLY WOULD BE A PERFECT CREATURE TO DISECT AND SHOW IT'S ORGANS TO THE CLASS?!"
  • Gazelle: "..... Yeah, I have to protest the idea of an animal being mutilated for science."
  • Buzzord: ".... Awwwww."
  • Electross: "But we may as well bring him anyway, cause his hat probe could be useful for gathering."
  • Gazelle: "Fair point. BUT NO gathering innosent creatures for science!"
  • Buzzord: "Oh, bother, fine! And I thought Igmar was bad about this!"
  • Vespa: "Well you need me espeically! I'm the one who knows how to look after all!"
  • Skyceria: "Can I come? I ALWAYS wanted to meet Hummingflies! They're symbols of beauty in deer and Peryton culture!"
  • Entropy: "May I come along as well by proxy that I'm being useless being around the group since my magic won't work with the Magidranium around? Cause it's not like I'm needed here."
  • Vespa: "I'm not sure the Hummingflies would respond well to Draconequui. They are very easy to intimidate. And your appearence, doesn't help."
  • Entropy: "Well if it's less imtimidation you want, (Turns into a kitten) Just ask!"
  • Vespa: "..... Ugh, only because you might persist on it anyway."
  • Gazelle: "Anyone else?"
  • Shifu: "Po and I shall join."
  • Lord Shen: "You can count on my support and Boss- (Sees Boss Wolf trying to sneak away)......... (Charges after a now running Boss Wolf) WOULD YOU GET BACK HERE?!"
  • Duke: "Well I'm obviously with ya cause we're a package deal, Gazzy."
  • Dodger: Unless circumstance says otherwise.
  • Gazelle: So, where is this 'Arcadia'?
  • Destiny: Well it's mainly known to us as the old getaway home of the namesake owner of the Talisman of Mirage. It's a utopian land where love grows in each and every plant, and protects it's own harmony in many ways. It's unattainable and remained a relatively unchanged paradise for eons.
  • Yona: And it's where the hummingflies migrated?
  • Chrysalis: "Well I doubt they would go to the frozen north, genius."
  • Throx: "AHEM! That being said, Chrysalis meant that the land is utterly free of hatred and fear. It is the land the Humming Flies feel the most comfertable in."
  • Chrysalis: Tartarus, even Pitch Black couldn't find OR claim it.
  • Gazelle: And how will we if he couldn't?
  • Vespa: "Well that's where I come in. Come on guys. (Leads the choosen group to follow her)."
  • Electross: "..... So..... What're the rest of us gonna do?"
  • Squidward: "Pretty much wait until the plot wants us to do something again."
  • Trixie: Or, you know, watch them from up above like we've BEEN doing, regardless if we can see them or not.
  • Squidward: "That's basicly the same thing I said, only less post-modern."
  • Trixie: "..... Well SOMEONE got in touch with their inner-post-moderness!"

Flimflam Resort

  • Labrum: (Was seen having left the Vegas Building and in the resort)....
  • The Flimflam bros arrived.
  • Flam: "Good news, boss. The Mothron machine arrived safe and sound."
  • Labrum: Excellent. Good to know that my little, gift, to the Uniter, is here.
  • Flim: Well, just keep in mind that the transporters are hesitant about guarding them. Would you like to see and tame it?
  • Labrum: Indeed...... But first, allow me to tend to BROTHER AND HIS CUTE LITTLE COHORTS!!
  • (Iago): AW, S***, HE FIGURED IT OUT!!!
  • (Earrita): "He doesn't actselly know that! He could be faking us out!"
  • Labrum: "Actselly, given a string of some of my hive's members have been reporting missing along with captured ponies, it wasn't hard to deduce that your already here. Also, say that I didn't, you just blurted out your existence anyway."
  • (Earrita): "...... F***?!"
  • (Devon): "Oh dear, are we REALLY this predictable?"
  • (Cornwall): "Ain't it any wonder that we're still successful heroes dispite that?"
  • Labrum: Just come on out, brother. I just want to talk.
  • Spiracle: (The heroes came out) You're beyond the point of talking, Labrum.
  • Labrum: (Cocoons the other heroes) Now your unable to really fight me on that as well. Besides, you presented me with an opportunity to surprise your little friends.
  • Spiracle: You have to stop.
  • Labrum: I'm NEVER going to stop. (Spiracle attacks only for Labrum to immobilize him in another cocoon)... Now are we going to talk, or are we going to just d*** around?
  • Spiracle: "You are out of luck if you think I'll betray the others' trust and their secretcy!"
  • Labrum: "Oh please, I'm too smart to try and short-cut my way into that infomation and that your TOO noble for such things! Besides, it's not THAT I want to talk about. See, these incidents gave me realization that my army's former pony nature has, more or less held them back. That is why I would need that traitor Mirage's staff, to make the spell stronger, so that these hybrids are completely shed of their pony nature, and become TRUE Changelings! And, I already know that it's in the school, protected by a spoonbill.... I just would like to know, the more, intimate details."
  • Spiracle: "You'll get no such thing, Labrum."
  • Labrum: "I think I already established that you're too NOBLE to squeese infomation out! Gaster..... On the other hoof..... Well, for a color, he doesn't exactly BEHAVE like one, now does he?"
  • Gaster: "What can I say? This look's purely cosmetic. Still my badass self, just not quick to take orders from asshats like you, Gramps."
  • Labrum: "I am aware that you're a bit scorned about how you served Chrysalis' hive. I feel the same way about Throx, when she made me watch over her cocoon, instead of letting me join her incompident daughter, so I would've offered BETTER stragities then her silly plans, like how she wanted to hijack a wedding or just constintly replace people without knowing their full life story!"
  • Gaster: "Tecnecally...... Ya did the same with Lightning Dust when you did that Washouts s***."
  • Labrum: "I never said I was 100% free of mistakes. But I can LEARN from them. And that's what I would've offered Throx's braindead daughter: Learning from mistakes. AND I CERTAINLY WOULD'VE DISCOURAGE HER FROM HIDING BEHIND A LIE?! I could've just as easily have her remind her subjects that we needed to be like this, so we can become monsters that can DEFEAT a monster! And now look what happened. Countless defeats later, and she loses the hive to a defect! And espeically, I would've discouraged Chrysalis from going after Yucckus Succamus' Tapeworm Staff, or at the least, not use young Changelings for it and instead use trained adult veterans! It was typical Chrysalis never figured that anything that belongs to the Dark Elf of Parasites would end, poorly. So it was good that I happen to be around that same swamp you and your brothers were. I saved them from being destroyed by you, and cured them of Yuck's little trick. I only apologize that I wasn't able to reach to you as soon as possable given that Chrysalis had a problem with failure intolerance, because you're a color now. But.... That far from means you don't have.... Uses. I am willing, to offer a trade..... I'll surrender your brothers right back to you, if you find Mirage's staff, for me."
  • Gaster: "..... Do you, take me for some kind of hopeless jackass that misses his brothers to the point of betrayal?! I mean hey, don't get me wrong, I miss the F*** out of those chuckleheads, but getting them back would mean I have to listen to YOUR ass?! And given that you're hardly even loyal to Throx, how would I know you aren't just loyal to yourself, ESPEICALLY WHEN YOU OFFER MY BROTHERS AS TROPHIES?!"
  • Labrum sighed.
  • Labrum: "How disappointingly unsurprising. I see Chrysalis has broken you too greatly that you wouldn't even respect the elder who saved your brothers' lives. Oh well. I'm used to having to get things I desire for myself before. So it's no SERIOUS loss. At least I can take the bittersweet notion that I at least captured you bunch. Guards, drag them into the hive's dungeon. And tell security to intensify. I suspect they are only a sign of a large intruder infestation."
  • The Guards drag the trapped group's cocoons and Spiracle.
  • Iago: ".... (To Gaster) Wow..... You gave up a chance to be with your brothers for Equestria."
  • Gaster: "..... Don't overanalyse it. I hated the idea of listening to someone who only cares about power more than people again a bit more then how much I care for my bros. The fact Equestria benefits from it is collateral damage. Besides, he already knows that the Mirage thing is at the school and with Ol'Spoonmouth. He's basically limited to just have Changeys bug the school now."
  • Iago: "Oh sure, hide behind your grump logic. But know this, had things been different like you having never came to the School, you would've said yes on the spot."
  • Gaster: "Gee, ya don't think too highly of me, do you? Kinda like everyone else when the O'Hardknocks crap happened."
  • Iago: "The opposite, actselly. What I meant is that you take the school more seriously than you like to cromugenly admit, kid. And ya know, Pharynx might understand the sacrifice."
  • Gaster realised this......
  • Gaster: ".... Yeah..... I guess... He would....."
  • The group were dragged off.

Las Pegacus Alley.

  • The back door of the Spinx Casino was seen as it was gently opened.
  • Icky looked around.....
  • Icky: "..... Okay gang. Coast's clear."
  • Changey: BOO! (The heroes were met by dozens of Changey)... Looks like Tic Tac Toe hit himself the jackpot, IN THE BACK OF HIS FAVORITE CASINO!!!
  • Changey: Triple T, please. (They immobilized them)
  • Icky: "WAIT A FREAKING MINUTE, TIME OUT, WHERE'D DID YA GUYS CAME FROM?!"
  • Changey 2: "Hey come now, ya didn't think Labrum wouldn't've think to cover the back exits, did ya?"
  • Gilda: "..... F***."

Celestial Casino

  • The group were seen walking down the casino's utility hallway.
  • Ember: "The exit isn't too far, team. We find it, and make a quick dash to our next spot."
  • Quartz: "Sounds like a solid plan for as long as there are no surprises-"
  • Changey: Boo. (They were immobilized by dozens of Changeys) Labrum was expecting you.
  • Ember: D'OH, OF COURSE HE WAS!!! F*** YOU, LABRUM!!! F*** YOU!!!!

Lunar Night Club Ally.

  • Rainbow Dash opened the exit to the ally.
  • Rainbow Dash: "See gang? I told ya we would be just-"
  • (Pred): Uh, guys? Some Changeys are coming directly at the Club.
  • (Hidden): And fast. You may wanna-
  • Changey: Going somewhere, sweet cheeks? (They were already nabbed as Pred's group came out too late)
  • Pred:... F***!
  • Changey: "And then there's you, defects! (The Changeys surround Pred and group)"
  • Pred: "..... Double f***."

Alley near the Spa.

  • Twilight: "Why is it that I end up disliking people when I came here? The Princess of Friendship isn't suppose to make enemies?!"
  • Frostbite: "Well considering that some of the Threats to Equestria are enemies of their own right, by that logic, you could've done better, Sparkle."
  • Twilight sighs disgruntled.
  • Spike: ".... I think Frostbite was trying to say that titles may bring expectations, but they don't bestow quilities. Kinda like what you said to Star Tracker's dad."
  • Twilight sighs.
  • Twilight: "Your right, guys. I shouldn't let Blackhole's words rule me, and-"
  • Changey: "LE AMBUSH?! (The Changeys pounced all but Ocellus!)"
  • Frostbite: "D'OOHHHHHHHHHHHHH, AND ME WITHOUT SOME RAID?!"
  • Spike: "HEY BUG-HORSE HOOVES OFF THE MERCENTICE, WILL YA?!"
  • Twilight: "OCELLUS?! RUN?!"
  • Ocellus buzzed off as two Changeys chased after her!

Five Stars Buffet.

  • The group got out to the alley.
  • Gallus: "And just like that, we are already making progress."
  • Windgust: "Ya know, ya would think that Labrum guy would cover all basis on these buildings' here."
  • Boomer: Be glad we were lucky.
  • ???: And your luck just ran out. (Changeys swarm in and re-cocoon the freed ponies)
  • Batty: STAMPEEEEEE- Wait, that doesn't make any sense. (They were all captured)

Puffy Cloud Hotel

  • The group just arrived to the exit.
  • Flash Magnus: "Yet another successful inflitraition."
  • The door was open as waves of Changeys were seen.... Then the door was closed.....
  • Noser: "..... You were saying-"
  • The Changeys bursted through the door comedicly as wacky sound effects were heard when they pounce into the group!
The Dazzlings get Busy (Gmod Pony Cartoooooon)

The Dazzlings get Busy (Gmod Pony Cartoooooon)

0:40

  • Billy: ".... (Dazed pain) And I thought a place called "Puffy Cloud Hotel", was suppose to be painless..... Ow."

Storage House Tunnel

  • Cynder: "(Was seen trying to make contact) Ugh, this tunnel is bad for reception. We're gonna have to get out."
  • Downpour: "Yeah, this place done gives me the creeps."
  • Changey voice 1: "There's the latch fellas, let's go in!"
  • Cynder: "...... RUN?!"
  • The group ran off!

Vegas Building Tunnel

  • Spyro struggles with the communicator.
  • Spyro: "Ugghhh, no good, guys. The communicators don't work in tunnels. We're gonna have to tell everyone manually."
  • Changey voice 1: "There's the latch, men! Charge!"
  • Thunderclap: ".... I call..... TACTICAL RETREAT?!"
  • The group made a run for it!

Grand Deos Stadium

  • Spud: "..... Ugggggh, what's taking your girlfriend so long?!"
  • Pharynx: "Well keep in mind that she needs to take the others TO the place to get the flowers we need! The flowers we need ain't exactly something a flower shop would have!"
  • Thundra: "Anything new, Coldfront?"
  • Coldfront: "Nope. Just alot of black dots that're heading towords us."
  • Silence.....
  • Spud: "..... BLACK DOTS?!"
  • The Changeys zoom up into the statium....
  • Coldfront: ".... Oh wait, now I see it.... We may wanna run guys, the hybrids are com- (Gets pounced by a couple) D'OW?!"
  • Changey: Nice idea for a trap. Too bad Labrum saw you misfits coming.
  • Pharynx:... Well played, Lab. Well, f*****g, played.
  • Thundra: ".... Momma Mia."

Chapter 6: Final Confrontation/Brothers Reunited

Flimflam Resort

  • (Velocity Raze): (From a message fire) OFF?! WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE DEAL IS OFF?!?
  • Labrum: Well Lightning had come to my doorstep. But, I guess some payment for you is needed. I wouldn't want a poor runt like you forgotten.
  • (Velocity Raze): What are you talking- (Glass shattering was heard) OH MY GODS- (The message fire ended)
  • Buster:... (Dubbed as Grubber) Sorry, bad spell service. Want me to call him back?
  • Labrum: "No need. Velocity will be, coming torwords us soon enough."

Suddenly the episode stops.

  • Deadpool: "(Shows up) Whoa whoa whoa, wait a minute! Look, I know I already interupted the episode to comment on the Dorkly vid, but I felt like this is one of those impourent stops, like, WHERE DID THAT WHOLE VELOCITY IS A SECRET BAD GUY STUFF CAME FROM?!"
  • MSM: One, it's been that way since the episode began. Second, you just noticed? Three, he's not exactly a bad guy. Like you, he's a mercenary.
  • Deadpool: Hmmph. Would've been glad if you specified it more. Asshole.

Episode Resumes

  • Buster: Why'd you even send him anyway?
  • Labrum: Just a dated countermeasure to keep my cover as Lightning. Now that the cat's been out of the bag for a while, I have a better use for him.
  • Caster: "Well he didn't exactly did a good job covering us anyway."
  • Labrum: "As clearly expected. His pony nature clearly held him back."
  • Buster: Now, as for the machine. How are you going to-
  • Labrum: Don't ask me how to do my job. We must wait until those misfits are found. (The heroes were brought in trapped in cocoons) And speak of the devil, here they are.
  • Icky: YOU BIG DUMB BUG, HOW?!?
  • Labrum: Come on, any villain in their right mind would see their enemies coming a mile away. What made you think I wouldn't be ready for you?
  • Coldfront: "Well, usually we deal with villains with not that great a hindsight."
  • Labrum: "..... Wow..... So glad, I was the exception then. Though I can't help but feel it's not the complete set."
  • Changey: "We're still going after the reminants, sir."
  • Labrum: "Ah. Then it's only a matter of time then. What exactly are they?"
  • Changey: "A young little female color and two other groups."
  • Labrum: "Good. Activate the tunnels' security against the remaining teams, and cut off all exits of the city. I want to make sure nobody is able to leave this city. Understood?"
  • Changey: "It'll be done, sir."

Arcadia

  • Humming Bird-Shaped Flies are seen gathering around a beautiful love emitting web....
  • Coming forth from it, is a red Black-Widow-Eqsed Spider covered in heart-markings.
  • Spider: "..... Welcome, my lovely little love collectors..... Once again..... We do our beautiful collection of love from these speical flowers, and let it be felt, throughout the world..... (Music is heard)...."
  • A Pure Changeling with a Ladybug wingcase showed up!
  • Pure Changeling: "(Deep voice) All right, people, let's JAM?! Jam for the Love-Weaver!"
Strange Magic - 7

Strange Magic - 7. Love is Strange

The Love Weaver's Song

  • Love-Weaver: "..... Thanks for the music, Baro Tone."
  • Baro Tone the Changeling; "Solid."
  • A Dragon-Fly-Winged Changeling came in sparaticly and crashed!
  • Baro Tone: "..... Well if it ain't Sper Attic."
  • Sper Attic: "(Gets up quickly) LOVE-WEAVER?! You ain't gonna believe this?! But strangers have come to Acadia?!"
  • Gazelle's voice: "Actselly...."
  • Gazelle's group came in.
  • Gazelle: "We have been here for awhile, and, gotta say, LOVE the show."
  • The Humming Flies panic and hid!
  • Baro Tone: "..... Awwwwww man, now the Humming Flies are scared again!"
  • Sper-Attic: "LOVE-WEAVER?! WHAT DO WE DOOOO?!"
  • A Butterfly-Winged Pure Changeling showed up.
  • Changeling: "Guys, what is going on."
  • Baro Tone: "Them. (Points to the group)....."
  • Changeling: ".... I see. Let me handle this. (Flies up to the group).... Ahem....... (Drumaticly) WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLCOME TO ACADIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?! I, am lady Wing-Dingaling!"
  • Duke: "(Snickers), Wing-dingaling! (Snickers!)"
  • Skyceria: "Oh my gosh?! The Love-Weaver! (Flies up to the Love-Weaver's web) It is SUCH an honor to meet you!"
  • Lord Shen: "Citation, young one. Who exactly is the Love-Weaver?"
  • Vespa: "That's the Love-Weaver. She's a great magical spider that is why love is shared in the world."
  • Buzzord: ".... Kinda ironic that she's basicly a pink Black Widow. They've been known to eat their mates."
  • Po: "Yeesh. And I thought Dude Mantises have it bad."
  • Lady Wing-Dingaling: "AHEM! Taking this back on track..... What brings you here into the Love-Fields?"
  • Gazelle: "Well, you see, and, I don't know how to explain this, but..... Equestria has a problem related to rogue changelings and a powerful spell that cursed ponies into hybrids! (The Humming Flies hummed fearfully)....."
  • Love-Weaver: ".... (Climbs down) Is that why you came here?"
  • Gazelle: "Yes. We kinda need some help, and-"
  • ???: "GUYS?!"
  • Ocellus arrives exhausted, tired, and face filled with tears!
  • Lord Shen: "Ocellus?! What in the glorious of the Jin Dynasty are you doing here?!"
  • Ocellus: "It was awful?!"

Flashback.

  • (Ocellus): The group I was with got captured, so I escaped! I eventually ran into Spyro and Cynder's group and asked me to say alot of impourent things to you, but one by one they sacriviced themselves to let me escape when the Tunnels began producing electrisity! The entire group in Las Pegasus got captured, and I was the only one to escape with my life. Then I ran into the ground group, only for THEM to be ambushed too! These two Changeys almost got to me and I barely lost them. Then almost on the way here ANOTHER Changey found me. (Ocellus was pinned by a familiar pony who was Changelingified)...
  • Ocellus: EEEEP!!!
  • ???: You're coming with me, bug! (Ocellus shapeshifted into a myrmecoleon and pushed him away as she escaped! The new stranger shapeshifted into a giant phoenix) WHERE ARE YOU?! SHOW YOURSELF BEFORE I BURN THIS ENTIRE AREA TO A CRISP!!! (Shrieks were heard as the Changey was seized by thorny living vines and taken away) GAAAHHH, LET ME GO, GRRRAAAAAHHHGH!!!! (He disappeared)
  • Ocellus:... Whew.

Present

  • Ocellus: I was lucky to have gotten into Arcadian enchanted forests by the time that brute showed up.
  • Gazelle: What did this Changey look like?
  • Ocellus: Gray coat, fire-colored hair and wings, blue eyes, and a fire comet cutie mark.
  • Gazelle:... Anyone got a clue?
  • Skyceria: "Wait. That kinda sounds like that Velocity jerk Rainbow Dash and others ran into in the Wonderbolt Acadamy."
  • Ocellus: "Wait, THAT'S who that was?! The same one miss Lightning Dust complained about on our journey here?"
  • Lord Shen: "HOW THE HELL DID HE GOT ROPED INTO THIS?!"
  • Love-Weaver: "AHEM! (Eeveryone looked at her)...... Would everyone like to explain what's going on?"
  • Ocellus: "Oh, before we continue, Labrum knows about Gazelle and has a scary robot Cynder said is from someone named "Moth Ron" and that he's also after the Mirage Staff."
  • Shifu/Lord Shen: "A MOTHRON ROBOT?! HERE?!"
  • Po: "AND HE'S AFTER ONE OF THE TALISMENTS?!"
  • Buzzord: "Oh relax, everyone, I have massive security defences in and out of that school! It can only be shut off by my voice, using the password...."
  • Lord Shen: "...... AND YOU THINK THAT WOULD WORK AGAINST SHAPESHIFTERS, WHO CAN TURN INTO YOU?!"
  • Buzzord: "Ahhh, but they don't know my password!"
  • Po: "..... Is it 12345678910?"
  • Buzzord: "LE GASP?! HOW DID YOU KNOW?! THAT'S A WELL KEPT SECRET?!"
Wah Wah Wah Waah Sad Trombone SOUND EFFECT

Wah Wah Wah Waah Sad Trombone SOUND EFFECT

  • Lord Shen: "...... AND I THOUGHT THAT WOODPECKER FROM KRATOS HAD STUPID PASSWORDS, BUT YOU?! (Pounces onto Buzzord and starts beating him up, as the Hummingflies get more scared and started crying?!)"
  • Ocellus: "(Sees this!) THE BOTH OF YOU?! (Turns into her Great Ground Honey Sapper form and seperates Shen from the cartoonishly beaten up Professor) STOP!? VIOLENCE IS SCAREING THE HUMMINGFLIES?! (Turns back to normal!)... (Approuches the Hummingflies) It's okay. The violence stopped. (The Hummingflies all looked at Ocellus, and instintly gained an interest in her and started to buzz around her, espeically a cute little one with big eyes). There there. Your all safe. (The little cute one began to fondle with Ocellus). (Gasps) One of them picked me!"
  • Lord Shen: "Pardon?"
  • Skyceria: "It is said that Hummingflies will pick up the most kindest person to be owner to. And it admired Ocellus on how she was willing to break up your beating on Professor Buzzord."
  • Boss Wolf: "(Jitters nerviously) Ya mean that thing wants to be adopted by Ocellus?!"
  • Ocellus: "D'awww, your a little cutie. I'll name you, Sclera. (The Cute Hummingfly hummed happily) You liked that! (The Cute Hummingfly nodded yes)"
  • Boss Wolf: "DON'T NAME IT?! YOUR GONNA END UP BONDING WITH IT AND G'OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW?!"
  • Ocellus: "..... He was told that Hummingfly venom was bad to canines, was he?"
  • Po: "Unrelentingly."
  • Love-Weaver: "..... Young Changeling, (Approuches Ocellus)..... You must be something spiecal if a Hummingfly choose you that instintly.... That's something I never seen since Mirage the Changeling herself. I think you have the potaintional to weild Mirage's old staff just as greatly as she did."
  • Ocellus got concerned and worried....
  • Ocellus: "M-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-Me?!"
  • Love-Weaver: "Well yes. The very staff that your "Labrum" is after, while it could make that transformation spell stronger, it can also reverse it under the ownership of a pure heart..... And child.... You can't get any purer then having an instint love of a Hummingfly."
  • Ocellus: "But..... I'm not brave like Mirage..... I barely survived that mess with the Changeys! I was helpless to save the other Lougers, (cries extremely) And my friends......."
  • Shifu: ".... I understand. (Approuches Ocellus) You are like these flies. You are afraid of confronting danger. You are more of a lover, then a fighter. And this is understandable..... But, it was very brave of you to stand between the Professor, and Shen's tirade. Shen usually gets VERY dangerious when he gets mad! You showed genuine bravery in standing up for the Professor."
  • Ocellus: "..... Well, Shen's temper tandrum was making the Hummingflies cry, and, I had to stop it. Or else the Hummingflies would stop making love."
  • Po: "Exactly. You stopped that beating because it was upseting the Hummingflies.... Now think about what your friends and the others are feeling....."
  • Ocellus closed her eyes in worry, envisioning her friends and the others being miserable in the hive dunguin, even Gaster is seen in misery.
  • Po's voice: "Being locked up by that creep Labrum has likely made them very sad as well! And if he's not stop, he's going to make the whole world miserable. And the only way to do this, is through you and that Staff."
  • Ocellus gave out for tears..... But then finally puts on the sternist face she can make.....
  • Ocellus: ".... I'm, going to teach that mean Labrum some mannors!"
  • Lord Shen: "AH-HA, THAT'S THE SPIRIT, YOUNG- (A loud clang was heard!)..... One."
  • Loud metal stomps are heard as the brush was seen, as the Hummingflies retreated again, as Sclera hid behind Ocellus!
  • Shifu: "..... Oh no..... The Mothron Robot! It must've found this place by following Gazelle's sigiture!"
  • Duke: "Okay, seriosuly, how bad could this bot POSSABILY- (A lazer buzzsaw cuts away the thick brush, reveiling a very large, Zathura Robot like machine, as it's angry red eyes are seen emitting a red glow of intimidation)....... (Wimpfully) Be."
  • Robot: "Commencing Combat Proceedsure. Current Uniter detected. Must, Vanquish."
  • Gazelle: ".... Tsk tsk. (Brings out the Uniter Blade) Bout time I have some fun in this episode-"
  • Robot: 'Activating Uniter Blade Disabling Lazer."
  • Gazelle: "QUE PASA?!"
  • The Robot readied a dark looking lazer!
  • Lord Shen: "GAZELLE?! DON'T LET THAT HULKING METAL MONSTROSITY HIT THE UNITER BLADE WITH IT?! IT WILL INCASE IT WITH DARKNESS STONE THAT BURNS UNITER HANDS WITH CONTRASTING DARKNESS TO YOUR LIGHT?!"
  • Gazelle: "OH, NOW I'M BEING TOLD THIS?!"
  • Shifu: "DO NOT FRET?! IT IS AN OLDER MODEL?! AN OUTMODED GENERATION?!"
  • Gazelle dodged a lazer fire from the machine as dark stone formed from the ground, scaring the Hummingflies!
  • Duke: "..... THAT THING MAY BE YESTERYEAR TECH, BUT IT SURE LOOKS EFFECTIVE AS S***?!"
  • Elzaorbana and Mayfly appeared from portals for Shen and Shifu's mouths.
  • Mayfly: "GAZELLE, DON'T FIGHT THAT ROBOT?! YOU'RE NOT READY TO FACE A MOTHRON BATTLEBOT?! THESE THINGS ARE BUILT TO DESTROY UNITERS?!"
  • Elzaorbana: "It may be an outmoded creation, but it is still effective at what it was made for: Destroying Uniters!"
  • Gazelle constintly dodged lazers!
  • Gazelle: "I WOULD IF THE CRAZY TINCAN WOULD LET ME?! (Dodged another Lazer strike) WHOA?!"
  • Buzzord: "..... Am I the only one who thinks we should do something about that, or what?"
  • ???: FOUND YOU!!! (A Changelingified and scratched Velocity Raze appeared) YOU'RE ALL COMING WITH ME!!!
  • Po:... You've gotta be kidding me. (Velocity attacks as Gazelle was distracted by the robot that was constantly not letting her retreat as Mayfly and Elzaorbana watch in horror)
  • Ocellus: (She shapeshifts into a slingtail and smacked him) STAY AWAY FROM MY FRIENDS!!
  • Velocity: (Chuckles) So NOW the cowardly Changeling decides to fight? How quain- (Gets comedicly flattened by Ocellus' tail!) BAH?!..... (Wimpfully) Owwwwwww.
  • Ocellus: "THAT WAS FOR SCARING ME, JERK?!"
  • Velocity: "..... (Dazed) In..... Too much pain........ To do anything."
  • Buzzord: "..... I feel as if he was a very last minute addition to this problem."
  • Gazelle: WELL WHATEVER HE WAS, MAYBE OCELLUS CAN HELP ME WITH THIS MALO HOMBRE OVER HERE!!
  • Velocity: (Gets up shakingly) Ya know what, pipsqueak? Your not worth the trouble! (Teleports)
  • Ocellus: Where'd he go?
  • Gazelle: FORGET HIM, I NEED HELP OVER HERE!!!
  • The Mothron Robot began charging up a powerful beam!
  • Ocellus turned into the Great Ground Honey Sapper again and saves Gazelle just as the Robot fired that charge...
  • Robot: "Air chase, immimet. Engage rocket jets! (The Robot flew up with power and destructive rocket jets on it's back, doing damage to the evioment of the area!)"
  • Baro Tone: "AW MAN?! THAT TRANS CAN'S WRECKING THE PLACE?!"
  • Mayfly: "Then we're ALL are gonna need to stop it!"
  • Lord Shen: "How can we stop something designed to kill Uniters?!"
  • Mayfly: "Let's all remember that it's an outmoded model. And there was a reason for it. The Lightflies and my people began to learn more about these old tincans' weaknesses."
  • Po: "Like, WHAT EXACTLY?!"
  • Mayfly: Like it's reliance to literal darkness for power. The newer models have a longer-lasting power supply. And older models die when out of darkness for too long.
  • Lord Shen: "Well I'm afraid that's not exactly a relieable weakness because it can still last a good while without darkness!"
  • Buzzord: "Well why not put it into a position that exhausts it's energy so it wastes power faster?"
  • Mayfly: That could work. Machines waste energy quickly.
  • Ocellus: (She shapeshifts into a literal dragonfly to get a better grip on Gazelle) You heard that, Gazelle? We figured out it's weakness.
  • Gazelle: WELL, ESCUPIRLO, I'M NOT SURE HOW LONG I CAN KEEP THIS UP!!!
  • Ocellus: It's powered by literal darkness. So just make it exhaust itself until it's out of power.
  • Gazelle: Well that could work... IF IT DIDN'T ALREADY SHOW IT HAS A LOT OF IT!!!
  • Ocellus: "Then let's put it into a position that it would end up wasting it's power faster!"
  • Gazelle: You got a huevo of an idea, kid? Because it'd be nice to lay it on me.
  • Ocellus: Well I am a Dragon Fly. In Changeling fauna, they're pretty darn fast fliers. Since I'm already holding holding you, just let me do the rest.
  • Gazelle: You say so. (Ocellus proceeded to flew quickly as the robot chased them while this music played)

Masked Dedede - Kirby Triple Deluxe Music Extended

  • Gazelle: ARE YOU SURE THIS WILL WORK?!? WE'RE CAUSING A LOT OF DAMAGE TO THIS UTOPIA!!!
  • Ocellus: I'M SURE THEY'VE HAD WORSE AFTER ALL THIS MILLENNIA!!!
  • Baro Tone: "(From Afar) THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE FIRST IN A VERY LONG TIME, ACTSELLY?!"
  • Ocellus: WELL AREN'T YOU THE LUCKIEST LAND IN THE WORLD?! YOU DIDN'T EVEN GET VISITED BY THE STORM CLAN?!
  • Sper Attic: "(From afar) STORMS CAN HAVE CLANS?!"
  • Ocellus: I'LL TAKE THAT AS A NO! (They zoom off)
  • Back on the Ground, Shen was bewildered.....
  • Shen: "..... You people..... Never knew the Storm Clan?"
  • Sper Attic: "No seriously, storms have clans now? A bunch of clouds can form, clans? What a crazy world we live in...."
  • Shen: ".... HOW BLOODLY ISOLATED IS THIS LAND?!"
  • Back to Gazelle and Ocellus, they are still persued by the Mothron Robot!
  • Gazelle: HOW LONG DO WE HAVE TO KEEP THIS UP?!
  • Ocellus: AS LONG AS IT TAKES! (They kept dodging the robot's attacks until it got overtaken by fire-colored magic)... Wait, what was that?
  • (Velocity): (Through robot) YOU'RE MINE!! (It attacked more fluently and with more coordination)
  • Gazelle: Ay dios mio, Velocity is possessing it?
  • Ocellus: Feels more like he's controlling it. But WHATEVER HAPPENED TO US BEING NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE?!?
  • (Velocity): Sad for you, Labrum doesn't agree with me. He forced me to finish the job and don't back down... VERY PHYSICALLY!!
  • Gazelle: Hmmph. Bastard.
  • Ocellus: WELL GOOD LUCK GETTING US- (The robot attacked them more accurately) HYPOGEAN!!!!
  • Gazelle: What do we do?
  • Ocellus: (Notices Velocity from below)... I got this. (She flew across him and tricked him into attacking himself with the robot)
  • Velocity: (Fell comically and was knocked out)
  • Gazelle: Good move. Also, that guy, really IS such a last minute addition! (They continue dodging the robot)
  • The Mothron Robot started to move slower and slower.
  • Gazelle: ".... Ocellus, the bot looks like he's moving no quicker then a slouth now!"
  • Ocellus: Good. Let's keep moving until it collapses. (They did so until the machine finally fired the last of it's energy, shut down, and fell to pieces)
  • Love-Weaver:... That's that I guess.
  • Elzaorbana: Not yet. Like Predators, both we and the Mothrons always destroy our machines to prevent our technology from being reverse-engineered. An adequate, but not always perfect, safety measure that keeps our power from those who would abuse it. Ours is safe atomic deconstruction. But Mothrons?... Well they're not as merciful. (The robot began to overload in dark energy)
  • Ocellus: WHAT, I THOUGHT IT HAD NO POWER LEFT!!!
  • Elzaorbana: This is magic. It doesn't have to be explained. But if we don't find a safe place to put it before it explodes, magic within a 50-mile radius could suffer problems. And be warned, any magic used on it could set it off.
  • Lord Shen: I got this. (Fires the robot from one of his cannons as it goes into outer space as the explosion was seen from the hive)

Hive

  • Labrum:... Hmmph. Not surprising given how outdated that model was.

Arcadia

  • Ocellus: Well... Since getting those Lust Orchids were a bust since it's likely Pharynx got captured too, we should probably go for a rescue mission. Starting with getting the Talisman.
  • Duke: But the School should be crawling with Changeys by now. We ain't got no chance, man!
  • Shifu: We'll figure something out.
  • Duke: What?!
  • Shifu: I DON'T KNOW, WE JUST GOT STARTED!!!
  • Gazelle: Everybody calm down. This time we have to think like a Changeling. This time we may access the school from underneath.
  • Boss Wolf: But changeling tunnels are like freaking mazes!
  • Gazelle: You clearly underestimate a Changeling's sense of subterranean direction. Throx seems to know her way beneath Equestria more than any other Changeling.
  • Po: "Assuming she's not already captured!"
  • Wing-Dingaling: "Wait, Throx?! THE, THROX?! Can I ask why you people are with her?"
  • Gazelle: "... Oh. Right. Long story short, Throx had this hibernation temple elder, Labrum, who abandonned his post and went to pose as a friend of ours and framed her as relapsing back to recklessness again, but then we exposed him, only for him to use the Changeling Transformation Spell, and then-"
  • Love-Weaver: "Say no more, child, I think we got the gist of it. It sounds like to me you'll need more help then I expected."
  • Buzzord: "Indeed. Espeically with the ambiguiity of the fate of our other friends, plus two relucently allied enemies."
  • Lord Shen: "But how exactly can you people help us? You don't even know who the Storm Clan are! You are overtly peaceful! And also, we're surprised you even WANT to help us after that monsterious robot ruined your land!"
  • Love-Weaver: We've healed from worse. We can help you find the School.
  • Ocellus: Are you sure?
  • Spur Attic: Well our land's safety IS at stake here. To a utopian land of love, a Changeling overlord is asking for trouble.
  • Ocellus:... Fair point. But I should warn you it'll be dangerous. (Sclera buzzes on her nose as she giggles)
  • Love-Weaver: Arcadia has trained itself to protect itself including it's inhabitants. We're not pacifistic contrary to how the land says we are.
  • Boss Wolf: "Then why the heck did the Hummingflies panic to the bot?!"
  • Bara Tone: "Keep in mind that there's a difference between self-defence, and actively looking for fights. We believe in the first one, not the second. Also, Hummingflies are very phobic to violence and heavy darkness. And that was what the Fear Wars was, man. Violence, and heavy darkness. And it was more true with the guy who started that mess...."
  • Lord Shen: "..... I see. So these creatures are haunted by the memory of, him."
  • Wing-Dingaling: "Yes. The Hummingflies are really disfond of conflict. It's why they stayed here."
  • Ocellus: Well you'll be happy to know that Equestria has changed.... Mostly. But that's not important right now. We need to get the Talisman before Labrum does.
  • Po: I just hope we aren't too late. (They left as Velocity came out angrier than ever and followed them)

Underground Caves

  • Spoonful was seen running in a panic with the Mirage Staff as buzzing was heard!
  • (Changey): "CHASE AFTER THAT BIRD?!"
  • Spoonful: "I REALLY NEED TO MAKE BUZZORD CHANGES HIS INFERNAL PASSWORD, AND THAT MR. IGMAR SEES HIM THROUGH IT?!"
  • (Pines): "HELP?!"
  • Spoonful: "Pines?!"
  • (Changey #2): "OHHH PRETTY BIRDY, WE HAVE YOUR HEDGEHOG FRIEND?!"
  • Spoonful: "FIRST OFF, HE'S A PORQUEPINE, NOT A HEDGEHOG, SECONDLY-"
  • (Changey #1): THAT WAY!!! AFTER HIM!!!
  • Spoonful:... When will I learn to shut up and run? (He ran across the Tree of Harmony Caves)
  • (Pines): SPOONFUL, HELP ME!!!
  • (Changey #3): Yeah, Professor. Lest you forget we have your friend and we can slit his throat if you don't come out right now, AND GIVE US THE TALISMAN!!!
  • (Changey #1): Yeah, unless of course it's more important than him.
  • Spoonful:...
  • (Changey #1): We're waiting, birdy!
  • (Pines): SPOON, JUST GO, I'M NOT WORTH IT!!!
  • Spoonful:... (He showed himself and ends up using the Talisman to separate himself and Pines from the Changeys) WHEW!!!
  • Pines: Well that was slick... BUT WE'RE ABOUT TO BE SMUSHED!!! (Rocks were falling as tremors occurred)
  • Spoonful: Hey, at least you're alive, now run. (They did that)
  • Both the duo and the Changeys got out of the way of the cave in, as an exit was seen.
  • Changey leader: "OKAY BIRDBRAIN, THIS IS STARTING TO BE REDICULIOUS NOW, EITHER GIVE UP NOW OR- (Suddenly, glowing roots grabbed the Changey force) BAH?! WHAT THE?!"
  • The Changeys get dragged back into the cave and get trapped in glowing pods......
  • Spoonful: "..... Incredable..... It's as if, some greater force reckindised that these hybrids had been corrupted and contained them until they can be cured..... Is there, a greater force here?"
  • Pines: "We'll have to worry about that later! Let's go!"
  • The Duo made a run for the exit as the remaining heroes appeared before them, as the duo freaked out and screeched to a halt panicing!
  • Buzzord: "Spoonful, old boy, you made it!"
  • Spoonful panicfully aimed the staff at the group!
  • Spoonful: "STAY BACK?! YOU MAY LOOK LIKE THE OTHERS AND BUZZORD, BUT YOU COULD BE IMPOSTERS?!"
  • Skyceria: "It's okay Mr. Spoonful, it's us!"
  • Spoonful: "IF SO, WHY IS THERE ONLY A SELECT NUMBER AND NOT THE WHOLE LOT?!"
  • Buzzord: "Labrum proved a greater adversary then already expected. He even had a dark alien robot involved."
  • Spoonful: "I want physical evidnece that shows your actselly what you say you are and not ambushers!"
  • Duke: If we were fakes, would this give us away? (Claws Po in the butt as he exclaimed)
  • Boss Wolf: Or THIS? (He hammers Po in the groin)
  • Po: OOOOHOOHOOHOOHOO!!... (Weakly) If we were fake, that would've given us away and more.
  • Pines: ".... That seems like a good arguement sir."
  • Spoonful: "... Just to be safe, tell me something that only those not with Labrum would know."
  • Skyceria: "I remembered that homework you gave me to learn about Minotaur History."
  • Ocellus: "I paid very good attention to all of your lectures."
  • Buzzord: "I remember all the times you lecture me painfully heavy about my inventions and always give me an earful about it! Honestly, your like an upgraded verson of Igmar!"
  • Gazelle: And disguising as me completely is most certainly NOT a feasible move. Heck, the Uniter Blade is proof enough that I'm real.
  • Pines:... Okay, you got us in a box, you're definitely the real things.
  • Ocellus: And believe it or not, we have already won. (Sclera buzzes around the two)
  • ???: "THEN WHEN IN DOUBT, CHEAT?!"
  • Velocity zoomed in!
  • Velocity: "THAT STUPID STAFF'S MINE, BITCHES?! (Grabs it as he kicked Spoonful down!) BOOYAH?! IN YOUR FACE YA FREAKING GOODY TWO- (The staff started to glow)..... Horseshoes?! (The Glow began to engulf Velocity as he screamed)!"
  • FLASH!
  • The Staff fell as Pines grabbed it!
  • It was seen that Velocity was unconjustus and turned back to normal.......
  • Shifu: "..... The staff knew that Velocity was corrupted by the spell, and cured him."
  • Spoonful: "(Takes the staff from Pines) That would be the power of Mirage. As such, it became as benvolent as she was. But I worry that the darkness of Labrum may be more stronger then..... Whoever this is."
  • Skyceria: "He was basicly Lightning Dust's old bully."
  • Spoonful: "Well how did this random hooligan got roped into all this?"
  • Po: "..... (Serious) Something tells me him being here ain't a cowinidence. He might be involved in some way."
  • Shifu: "Then he shall be dealt with in due time. Right now, Labrum's a greater concern."

Las Pegasus

  • Labrum migrained!
  • Buster: "Ya okay boss?!"
  • Caster: "I warned him not to try the tofu shrimp?!"
  • Labrum: "No?! It's not that! I sensed that a Changey was reverted to normal! Likely that Velocity twit! I was afraid of this! That staff was purer then I was prepared for! Well, for hybrids at the least. I'm confident that my true Changeling biology would be too great for that traitor's purity to withstand! Only now, this has to be a matter I shall attend myself, else even the strongest Hybrids I send will be taken back to normal pony-hood! Boys? I want you two to stay here and keep your brother and friends company. I have impourent Emperor Matters to deal with. (Flies off!)"
  • Caster: "..... Wanna go bust Gaster's balls about being a color?"
  • Buster: "Is a Cringewing Cringeworthy?"
  • (Icky): HOW DOES THAT EVEN MAKE SENSE?!
  • Buster: BECAUSE SHUT UP!!!!

Outside Las Pegasus

  • Labrum was seen flying off as the Chanegys saluted him.
  • Labrum: "If my calculations are correct, they should already be on their way as I am seeking them out."
  • Random Changey: What calculations?
  • Labrum: "I WAS TALKING TO MYSELF, IMBACILE?!"
  • Random Changey: Imaginary friend? (Labrum angerly zaps him) D'OOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW?!....... I'll shut up now.
  • Labrum: (Sighs) The sooner these simpletons become full-fledged Changelings, the better.
  • Labrum flew on.

Ponyville.

  • A lot of Changeys were everywhere as the group were seen hidden in Ponyville's alleys.
  • Gazelle: "Okay, we're gonna need to try to devise a new plan quick enough to resolve all this."
  • Buzzord: "Well, thing is, it occured to me that since Labrum is so smart, he might end up just coming after us himself, why, he could already be after us now."
  • Po: "Well, with this in mind, we're gonna just have to wing it and hope for the best!"
  • Ocellus: "We're going to need a vantage point. And I think Ponyville Hall is tall enough for it."
  • Shifu: "Exsellent plan."
  • The group resumed into the alley ways!

Hive Dungeon

  • Caster and Buster: "(Playing with Gaster's wings) Color Bug, Color Bug, fly away home! (Both laugh!)"
  • Gaster: "..... OKAY, HAVE YOU TWO DIPS***S HAD YER FUN!? (Pulls his wings away from his two brothers)"
  • Caster: "A little bit, yeah."
  • Buster: "Messing with colors always gives a smile to my face!"
  • Gaster realised something, Caster and Buster are without Labrum....
  • Gaster: ".... Look, can I be real with you guys?"
  • Caster: "Yeah, what?"
  • Buster: "Oh boy, another boring color speech. Smile gone."
  • Gaster: ".... I noticed you guys weren't around when Labrum was onto us in the resort."
  • Caster: "Well yeah, we was building the Magidranium Wall that is just now finished and placed around the city."
  • Buster: "Yer point."
  • Gaster: "Well, that means ya didn't know what Labrum said to me about you two."
  • Caster: "Dude, we're already aware he thinks we're idiots, he doesn't exactly has the greatest impression of us. No thanks to BUSTER?!"
  • Buster: "Hey, I didn't mean to?!"
  • Gaster: "I mean..... That he was gonna sell you two out to me if I helped him get the Mirage Staff!"
  • The duo were surprised......
  • Caster: "(As Buster was tearing up)..... Well, you obviously refused since your locked up here, so.... So clearly it was only a front, right?"
  • Gaster: "Bros, listen to me. Labrum may be the reason your alive, but he's argueably worse then Chrysalis and even her freaking mom! You two were just stepping stones he needed to even get this far! And he was willing to trade you two away just to reach the next step, that staff, so he would turn all those freaks into proper Changelings! He only valued you two as assets as suppose to actual living things. And keep in mind, he doesn't believe in Chrysalis' s*** about loving each other being cannabalisum to Changelings, why, he even thinks that he could've made Chrysalis more HONEST about it!"
  • Caster: "Well, he, he only wants Changelings to get payback on, him!"
  • Gaster: "And that's fine and all, that fat hairy freak ain't on my good side neither, but like Chrysalis and Throx, he believes in becoming a monster like HE was! And honestly, he might be getting TOO into it....."
  • Caster and Buster are now conflicted......
  • Caster: "..... Awful as he was, he was basicly our secondary dad when we went to live with him. That being said..... I think I got the idea why you colors hate being like this."
  • Buster: "(Sniffles), Your right, Gast. Maybe it's time for some revalu, revala, revalulu..... To resconsider!"
  • The duo began to glow and turned into pure Changelings, Caster being purple and Buster being indigo.
  • Caster: "..... (Notices the change)..... Welp, guess we're colors now..... Actselly, ya know something?..... I don't look half-bad."
  • Buster: "Aw sweet, we got the cooler colors and didn't become like, pink or something!"
  • The duo proceeded to free the others and Gaster espeically.
  • Gaster: "Thanks for listening bros..... (Gives a soft wimper for a bit).... COME HERE, YOU CHUCKLEHEADS?! (The trio proceeded to hug!)"
  • Caster: "..... So, what's the plan, Gastman?"
  • Gaster: ".... Simple. It's time for Labrum to settle his brotherly dispute as well."
  • Spiracle: "Indeed. And I intend, to see this through."

Ponyville City Hall

  • The remainder group finally reached the top, as Labrum was seen hovering before them.
  • Labrum: "It wasn't hard to deduce that this building was tall enough to be a vantage point to try and use the Talismen to reverse my spell. So I decided that it's time for a Changeling Emperor to handle this himself."
  • Lord Shen: "Labrum, this nonsense is at an end!"
  • Labrum: "Oh, it is. Though I think my interpretation of nonsense is radically different to what you meant. Now, I shall proceed to finally accquire that staff of a traitor, and then- (Spiracle intercepted Labrum)...... Let me guess. Caster and Buster were reasoned out of their true nature, correct?"
  • Spiracle: "I see this doesn't surprise you."
  • Labrum: "It couldn't be helped. Their brotherhood was stronger than any loyalty towards me. Though my attempt to use them as rewards for Gaster likely contributed to this. It was unavoidable. Which is why when I get the Talisman of Mirage, and after I turn these hybrids to TRUE Changelings, I'll revert all of Chrysalis' hive back to their former TRUE selves, even Gaster, so they do not have to be divided like WE ARE, brother."
  • Spiracle: "You would have to go through me, first!"
  • Labrum: "I'm flexible. I can spend some extra time settling our dispute once and for all, Spiracle..... But just to play it safe, (Fires goop at the remainder group and traps all of them, including the Talisman)... So you people don't try to use my brotherly conflict as a basis to undo my spell and squeeze in a victory because of my momentarly distraction!"
  • Po: "Wow.... This guy IS good at what he does."
  • Labrum: And don't you forget it.
  • Ocellus: You know, if you were ACTUALLY smart, you'd wait until you got the Talisman, which is LITERALLY RIGHT HERE, before you settle your sibling dispute. For all we know, the other Lodgers are on their way here.
  • Labrum: (Laughs) And what would I accomplish doing that before dealing with him? It's much more prudent to do it after. And even if that didn't come to mind, you just reminded me. You would've helped me either way like you just did by bringing the Talisman to me. However, you and the Talisman won't be leaving my sight. (Hangs her on the pole of the roof with the Talisman)... Now that that's out of the way, we can settle this brother to brother.
  • Spiracle: "Tsk, tsk, tsk. Did you honestly thought that was a good move, brother?"
  • Labrum: "Of course I do. She may be at the tallest vantage point, but she's never getting out of that goop."
  • Spiracle: And if she CAN?
  • Labrum: I think you misheard me. NEVER, getting out of that goop. Seriously, brother, pay attention for somechangeling your intelligence.
  • Spiracle: How about you get your head out of the ground and see that she has the power to escape. (Notes the Talisman)
  • Labrum: And how will she wield it? Does she even know how it works?
  • Spiracle: Not entirely yet.
  • Labrum: (As Ocellus was slowly freeing herself with the Talisman) Just drop it, brother. Now that the Talisman is up there, I'll soon use it to convert the entire land.
  • Spiracle: We'll-
  • Labrum: NOT see about that. You all stood a good while, and in the end, it didn't even matter.
  • Ocellus: You think so? (She wielded the Talisman)... Well your second mistake besides bringing me up here, was putting someone capable of love that can fuel the Talisman up here. (Charges up the Talisman)
  • Labrum:... Maggot of a bi- (A flash engulfed all of Ponyville and Equestria as all Changeys were turned back to normal!) -IIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! (Gets swallowed up by the flash as well!)
  • The flash faded.....
  • The group were freed from the goop, as Spiracle flew up and got Ocellus down.
  • Spiracle: "That was clever of you to use brother's own sense of logic against him."
  • Ocellus: "I kinda have to admit that it was a bit of a trial and error plan. I was kinda prepared for him to consider taking the staff."
  • Moaning was heard....
  • A brand new Labrum was seen, as he was a lot shorter than he was, was pink , and the mandibles have now became a moustache.
  • Labrum: "Ohhhhhhh..... What happened?"
  • Ocellus: "..... (Quietly) He doesn't remember?"
  • Spiracle: "(Quietly) It's likely that the staff cleansed his evil so hard, he even lost his memories of it. Perhaps that is for the best. It would literally be a new start for him."

Later...

  • ​​​​​​The group were reunited as the damage onto Las Pegasus was being mended.
  • Desteny's Changelings were seen deconstructing the hive in a neat pile to take back to their homeland.
  • The Flimflam brothers were seen giving ponies refunds for tecnecally scamming them about the Washouts, along with Blackus and the goons being arrested for their part in this.
  • Spiracle was seen with his reformed brother.
  • Spiracle: "Are you sure you are more preferent to go back to Arcadia with Love-Weaver? Your knowledge would be beneficial to the school."
  • Labrum: "I insist on this, brother. My own path of redemption leads me to another road. Also, I owe Arcadia greatly for sending that machine to go after the Uniter, which in term damaged their land. I feel, respondsable for that. I owe them greatly. Also, I feel like they could use help to further improve their self-defenceive abilities since the Storm Clan's an alienated concept to them."
  • Spiracle: "Very well. This is your choice and I respect it. Take care of yourself, Labrum."
  • Labrum: ".... I will offer a parting gift to your school. I sort've unofficially adopted Gaster's brothers since they were mistaken to be deceased.... I want them to be with their brother again."
  • Spiracle: "Say no more.... I believe Sparkle is very much ahead of you for this."

School of Friendship

  • Gaster lead his bros into his room to unpack their things.
  • Caster: "Hey hey hey, swanky place ya have here, Gasty!"
  • Buster: "And they made this without goop and rocks? Ponies are incredible!"
  • Gaster: "Eh, that amazement goes away after weeks of doing Mt. Homework. Trust me, expect to be given a LOT of that. (Twilight showed up)..... Yo, Sparks..... I can't thank ya enough for this."
  • Twilight: "It's no trouble."
  • Gaster: ".... Well, don't expect this to change my charming personality! I still ain't quick to show my butt to authority, just so ya know."
  • Twilight: "I understand. What you went through will take time to heal. But this will be the first step to a long recovery. And honestly.... I couldn't ask for a perfect first time."
  • Twilight leaves, as Gaster and the duo began bonding.
  • Ocellus:... I'm glad to know Gaster's back with his brothers.
  • Rainbow Dash: I'M glad that we cleared Lightning's name.
  • Sandbar: I'M glad Ocellus began to start growing. (Pets Sclera)
  • Gallus: (Sarcastically) I'M glad YOU left the rest of us out of the rest of the adventure.
  • Spike: Gallus, all teams and the ground group were captured by Labrum's forces, cool it.
  • Gallus: "..... Okay okay, that's fair, you probuly weren't in the position to help anyway and Gaster convinced his bros to help us out too late into the adventure. I'll give ya props that you can at least handle yourself."
  • Ocellus: "From you, that means alot."
  • Applejack: "Though I ain't surprise Chrysalis and Throx blew the coop once Labrum was defeated. Figures they leave the minute things are done."
  • Shore: "Obviously they figured that if they stuck around to try anything, they would've end up leaving anyway, so, they just quietly left while all was done."
  • Gallus: "Well, bitter as I am that I missed out on the villain being beaten, the impourent thing is that at least it's another hard-earn victory for the School. Now, can we get some lunch already? I'm starving and I didn't exactly get to enjoy that buffet!"
  • The group laughed as they went to enjoy a well-earned meal.

Epilogue

Helping Hooves' Location

  • Filly #4: Uh, Miss Helping Hooves, I know you said not to see the movie, but when I told my sister what you said, she wanted me to watch it with her. After the movie ended, I asked her what she was screaming about, and she said something about an anti-brony joke in the review. PLEASE DON'T PUNISH ME! (cowers in fear)
  • Helping Hooves: "Aw, don't worry. Me asking you to not see that film was more of a personal suggestion then a teacherly demand."
  • Filly 4: ".... Oh, then in that case, you were right, the book was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better. That film was, well, more messier then a Garbage Troll's house!"
  • Nearby Garbage Troll: Hey! I don't tell you how to live YOUR life!

Sincere Funtime's Location

  • This time, Sincere is working as an extra in a comedic action film with Ton'sa Fun in it, as she crashes into a camera during a fight scene, scattering the film everywhere.
  • Director: NO-HOHOHO! MY FILM! My masterpiece is ruined! (Gets angry) YOU CLUMSY LITTLE BITCH! You call yourself an actress?! You're lucky Ton'sa doesn't tell you you're unfit for business! Now you go back in there and wait for your cue while we do this entire scene again!
  • Tons'a: "Hey, Heimlick?"
  • Heimlick:" (Suddenly gets less angry) Yes, my wonderful star?"
  • Tons'a: "..... You either start being nicer to Sincere, or I'm switching directors for MY new movie!"
  • Heimlick: "..... (Gulp)..... Yes Ma'am..... (Back to Sincere) On second thought Miss Sincere, maybe this calls for a lunch break anyway, I'm starving. BREAKTIME! (Everyone proceeds to do that)."
  • Sincere: "..... Thanks for the help, Miss Tons'a."
  • Tons'a: "No prob, Sincere. Listen, directors may be loud jerks, but they're cowerdly loud jerks. They respect acters that make them feel like they can't just yell you into submission. The next time you work with a disrespectful director, put your hoof down and he'll cool it. It's just a matter of making him remember that "Their masterpiece", can't work without the actors."
  • Sincere: "But the director I knew back in Hoofville is really-"
  • Tons'a: "Like I said, make him feel like he can seriously lose you if you don't feel like your appresiated as an actor. If you can show directors that they need to treat their crew with respect, then their masterpiece, will never be done. Trust me. All directors are the same with this, even the nicer ones. Now come on, kid. I got more pointers to give ya."

Kindheart's Location

  • Kindheart: (Arrives home) Ah, home sweet home.
  • Butler: "I trust the event went smoothly?"
  • Kindheart: "Well, apart from when it ended up being more complicated then expected when it turned out Lightning Dust and two others were being framed by reniment rogue Changelings in that whole Washouts affair, yes Jooves, it went smoothly."
  • Butler (Jooves): "Shall I make you some Hayiver?"
  • Kindheart: "That'd be splended, Jooves."

Midnight Fate's Location

  • Blackhole Tracker: (He is seen outside the castle doors writing a letter consisting of four or five scrolls) "And so, Princess Celestia, it is with deep emotional pride-hurting regret, as stated in the second scroll of this note, that I would like to sincerely apologize for my otherwise inappropriate prejudice to your royal highnesses. I hope not to get sent to Tartarus for this, which is why I have decided to promptly not get involved in royal affairs ever again and be a proper representer of a spa named after your niece. I pray to the Alicorn Gods that this explanation will be sufficient. I also hope that I will remain your loyal subject, Blackhole Tracker." (Rolls up the scrolls and places them on the steps, and starts walking away sadly)
  • ???: It was the third scroll.
  • Blackhole Tracker: (Stops walking, and slowly turns to Midnight) I beg your pardon?
  • Midnight: You apologized in the third scroll of your note, not the second.
  • Blackhole Tracker: Forgive me. It was hard to think clearly after not being able to talk to my son or work in Las Pegasus with all that's happened.
  • Midnight: ".... I'm curious, Mr. Blackhole Tracker.... Why make a Spa based on Candence when you were clearly bitter about the princesses?"
  • Blackhole Tracker: "...... (Sighs)..... Because I once went into the same school as she was..... And..... I..... I had a crush on her in my youth.... But, I wasn't exactly.... A confident pony. Basicly, I was like my own son and that I was an awkword twit."
  • Midnight: "..... Tell me more, Mr. Tracker."
  • Blackhole Tracker: Call me Black.
  • Midnight: And make it sound racial?
  • Blackhole Tracker: It's easier to say without getting me confused for my son. Plus, Equestria is not like human-owned worlds where their races are defined by skin color. (Sighs) When I heard that she was getting more into Shining Armor, I..... I felt desistated..... Granted, I initially hoped when they graduated and never came to see eachother again since...... They came to forget eachother..... Then..... It was after the Eagle-Beak fiasco, when they ended up remember who exactly eachother were.... And once more...... I lost my chance again.... I grew.... Unbaringly bitter."

Flashback.

  • (Blackhole): I ended up having no motivation to lead a great life. Cadence told me that we can't all get what we want and you have to move on, otherwise I'd end up like that Buck Withers guy. Sure he's changed, but that's beside the point. Even when I became a father, my son didn't want to be in my horseshoes. Before this I was supporting the princesses with advertising. But then I watched as the 4 princesses made mistake after mistake, and every time, Equestria just FORGAVE THEM!! That's the problem I had with them. Celestia was hardly doing anything, Luna had been ruining herself and others doing so, Cadence, ignoring the fact I never got to get together with her, is hardly a good leader of the Crystal Empire, and Twilight?... My Gods, there's not enough time in the day. But the key incidents are when she reaped bad news on the hippogriffs and her friends because she couldn't take the time to offer forgiveness or trust to any of them, and for the fact he snapped at my son and broke his hoof. I don't care if Novo was being unreasonable, I don't care if her friends were being stupid, I don't even care if her rare moment with her family was taken from her. She chose to escalate the problem by trying to steal the pearl. She chose to not trust her friends even after three strikes. And she chose to bring her problems on my son. It's nopony's fault but hers.

Present

  • Blackhole: So, their chance for earning my forgiveness was worn out after what Twilight did to Star. I was convinced that the princesses were nothing but incompetence that have passed their time.... But Twilight told me that-
  • Midnight: That nobody's perfect, nor should they be. If they were, we'd have no point of having friends or the magic of friendship. Being different technically makes the magic of friendship strong. And the princesses know this.
  • Blackhole: "(Sighs), And I reckindised this now. Perhaps all this judgementalness was because, I was bitter about Cadence coming to be with Shining. Now, do not get me wrong. I love Cosmos Tracker with all my heart, but.... I guess I just had this side of me that was just.... Bitter..... I almost can't believe I was so, petty and bitter about these sort've things, legitamentcy aside."
  • Midnight: Well if it makes you feel any better, I can ask Cadence to try out your spa.
  • Blackhole: But I heard tell you're mainly loyal to Celestia. What makes you think you can even get Cadence to come to my spa?
  • Midnight: You'd be surprised about my connection to the Princesses.
  • Blackhole:... Thank you. The Cadenza Spa wouldn't be complete without her visit.
  • Midnight: It's nothing, really.
  • Star:... So, um... You want to try out my dad's spa?
  • Midnight: Maybe some other time. (Leaves)
  • Star: (Sighs) ("Dang it. Worth a shot. She's... Very pretty.") (Star walked away in love with Midnight)...

Lightning Dust's Home

  • Lightning Dust: (She and Acidburn return home) Now, then, honey... Where were we?
  • Acidburn: "Well, we were aiming to see if you can resist a little acid, if ya know what I mean."
  • Lightning Dust: "Oh you cheeky pony." (The two giggled and made out)
  • ???: Hey, Light! (Velocity came back)
  • Lightning Dust:... AW HELL NO! (Pushing him out) No, out, no douche bags or c*** blockers in our private time!
  • Velocity: "Relax, relax, I'm here on parole from Black Staillian Asylum. I feel like I should say, sorry, for getting involved in all that mess. Now, I know the odds of you forgiving me are slim, and, that's fine. Just thought I get that off my chest as I pretty much share space with the other defects of Equestria. And for the fact that I messed with ya from childhood. I, I owe that at least. That being said, yeah yeah, I get it, ya don't wanna see me, so, I'm gonezo. (Some Orderlies picked him up) Peace."
  • Lightning Dust was surprised as Velocity and the Orderlies left....
  • Lightning Dust: "..... Wow, I'm..... Surprised he did that on his own accurd."
  • Acidburn: "I guess having been double-crossed by Labrum and turned into a Changey gave him a chance to do some soul-shearching."
  • Lightning Dust: Now if the world is done interrupting us... (The two continued making out)... (Off-camera) Why do you have that?
  • (Acidburn): You thought I was kidding about the acid joke?
  • (Lightning Dust):... LET'S DO IT!!!

Cozy Glow's Room

  • Cozy: "-And that's what basicly happened...."
  • ???: "..... That bit about the Spoonbill being able to avoid being caught quickly by the hybrids interests me. Cozy, I want you to start an investigation on that, right away."
  • Cozy: "Ugh, this soon, and with finals up?"
  • ???: "Cozy?!"
  • Cozy: "Okay, okay! But it can't be through me! I need ginni pigs to test this out to see if it works!"
  • ???: "Well, who better then six certain individuals who are for exploring without Teacher knowledge?"
  • Cozy: "..... Okay, that's, actselly a fair point. But it has to be done PERFECTLY, okay? I have to be able to ease them into it, put them into a situation where they HAVE to!"
  • ???: "Yes yes yes, fine! Just be sure to do it! (The Artifact ends transmission)...."
  • Cozy: "..... (Sighs)..... So much for a normal life."

The End?
