Howdy, partner!

What you see here began as a series of comedy-centric stories with the concept of an alicorn-ascended Princess Applejack trying to change a mismanaged Equestria for the better by humorously interacting with the other, quite lazy, princesses. Plus late night pink antics.

Not to mention a whole bunch of Changelings with nothing better to do but cause mischief.


The whole thing was set in motion by this gem:

~~~~~

>So, wait, why am Ah' a princess again?

>Because you seem to be the only goddamn one of those ponies who gets that a Princess need to do actual work regarding maintenance of the kingdom. You know how much city planning or trade negotiations Twilight or Luna have done? Fucking nothing. Everyone is obsessed with the world ending threats they think I should fight, but the minute I point out the free health care I have to work to maintain everyone goes quiet. And don't even get me started on Cadence, who can't even manage a basic meeting with the Equestrian Games representative. Fucking annoying. Go do actual princess stuff, because apparently everyone else got the pamphlets mixed up or something and thinks "Princess" means "Beat cop."

~~~~~

Are you feeling creative? Try your hand at writing a story! No contribution is too small and we love having new folks around.

If you're more artistically inclined give a drawing or sketch a shot. Don't fret too much; it doesn't have to be fancy and we appreciate artwork a lot.

If that isn't your style either, writers always need feedback. So tell us what you liked - and what you didn't - to help us improve.

If you are unsure about anything, do not be afraid to ask. We will gladly bring you up-to-date or explain anything you feel is unclear.

Thread 266, and these are some serious trix!

Aren’t you ashamed of what you are and what you’ve done with yourself, your life, and all your worth? This is what I’m looking at, a big fluffy dumbass who said the stupidest thing that popped into their head. I’m ashamed of you. I’m ashamed for you. Everything about you makes me want to punch my own gut on the offchance that something so stupid could ever come out of me. This here? This is why abortion was invented. You. It was for you.

>Okay, what did we walk in on?

The two ponies shook the last of the sleep from their eyes so they could more clearly see the utter absurdity in front of them.

“I believe it’s called…”

Specifically, the giant pile snoring away in the middle of a giant rug in the Empire’s study.

“A fuckpile.”

>DT!

“Look at them! Look!”

Cadence, Forty Two, Eighteen, Spitfire and even Chrysalis were in that giant pile, softly snoring away and tangled all over each other.

“Tell me that could be anything more than a fuckpile! A fucked up pile!”

>I don’t think that word is what you think it is.

“Look at it!”

>I’m looking, I don’t know what I’m seeing but I’m looking.

“Just use your Pinkie Powers and get Cadence off the top.”

>Doesn’t Tabubblebutt have something for that?

“Yes, of course.”

A pause.

“Well? What are you waiting for?”

>Finnne.

The pink pony walked over to the nearest pool table, picked up a pool stick, walked back, and with one quick shot knocked Cadence off the pile.

~WAH!~

The others resumed the pile curling, albeit with a noticeable gap in it.

“Good job, you get a cookie.”

The rocket launcher flung a cookie into the waiting ponies mouth.

~Why… why does it have-~

“We’re the ones asking the questions here!”

>Yef! First off, where’sh Shineh?

~…Uh…~

She looked into the gap in the pile, where juuuuust a little bit of white was visible at the bottom.

“…is he dead?”

~I really hope not, that would be a huge inconvenience.~

“The only thing we’ve gotten consistently is no rape!”

‘That’s not a big deal, rape is not a theology, but an act! You can take out rape and change nothing else! Rape is not that big a deal!’

“She didn’t mean it like that!”

‘I did not mean it like that!’

“So spill! What’s the secret to getting the sticker!?”

>No rape.

“…”

‘…’

>Well, okay, that’s not the only thing I laid down to my ghostwriters and approval committee. The other thing was they had to feel a feeling of love when they played it!

“…committee?”

>Well yeah, when did you think I would find time to play four to sixteen hour portions of multiple games to approve or deny them? I have an entire wing dedicated to approval or denial! I’m a very hooves off mare with it though, videogames are weird if they’re not in my magicroom.

She holds up a tiny square.

“What is that? Some kind of security keycard to unlock all the parts of the castle.”

>NO! It is… my ID! Show it to the guard and they’ll let you in!

‘But… neither of us look even remotely like you-‘

“You ready for this?”

The royal pair watched as the portal began to crackle and charge with the strange magic they had grown so used to. After what felt a lifetime of being awash in its magic transporting them across time and space, the pair standing before it could almost feel a ghost tingle across their skin any time the portal became charged.

“Of course not.”

His wife spoke with a smile, one diplomatic and seemingly ready for anything. The stallion couldn’t help feeling a little jealous how calm she appeared to be, she always had the brilliant mind when it came to talking to others that he sorely wished he could replicate.

He simply looked to her and knew she was ready, he wished he could say the same about himself. Times had certainly become strange rather quickly, and with the ‘unique’ standing of that world, he couldn’t stave off the worry in his chest as to how this pony would react to those that lived with them, and their circumstances in how high they were on the command chain. Inviting him had been a show of kindness.

Or, rather, a bout of foolishness in hindsight.

Yet, it was too late to change his mind, too late to take it back. The time had passed.

For he had arrived.

“Hello there!”

The mirror of the Prince of the Empire, albeit a funhouse mirror in this case.

A second later, everyone had forgotten everything about that.

'So! Is the Empire in your world still like it used to be?'

Okay I never noticed that and PP anon that does not sound healthy. Like, I'm not trying to say this as some kind of mega-fan of the character I'm just saying it as a guy who read you saying you literally will not name a character for being around at all and this is worrying me. Listen to your /pa/l this sounds very weird.

Hateboners are for life.

And honestly so long as he isn't, like, writing stories where the guy gets castrated it's not that big an issue. He doesn't like the character, big whoop, he's obviously got a shitton of other writers.

>I notice you've been avoiding talking about... that.

The stallion above the others remained smiling, even though something very sharp could be seen in his eyes. It had been there since he had looked out over the horizon at the snowy land beyond, and it had never stifled since its ignition.

>Any particular reason I should be worried?

They knew what he spoke of, of course. Neither were so simple or foolish enough to ignore the blatantly obvious. Well, most of the time. This time was not one of them.

"Sure! What do you want to know?"

They knew what he meant, and why that meant they had to put on the brightest, happiest smile they could to show there was absolutely nothing to be afraid of, nothing to worry about at all.

>Couple things.

He didn't seem to buy it at all.

>For starters, how you can't see that the Changelings setting up their home base literally outside your doorstep could possibly be-

A short, almost annoyingly normal knocking of the door cut him off.

~Can I come in?~

To the tall stallion, the voice on the other side of the door raised his fur nearly to the point it danced on his back, all of his body language looking ready for a fight. The other two, on the other hoof, looked like they were ready to fall to the ground in shock.

"...Sure?"

They very nearly did just that when the door opened normally, and someone entered in a very normal fashion.

~Ahem. I do believe you were in the middle of asking them about certain land placement! I, The Queen of All Changelings, believe I can answer those questions for you in their stead! If you don't mind, of course.~

Though she looked regal, powerful and radiating confidence, most couldn't help but notice the slight, almost remorseful twitch of her hoof. It longed to hit that door, and was not whole without it.

"Oh no, of course, explain away."

1/5
>>
>>33623483

The stallion brushed the comment off, while at his side his wife silently thanked whatever lie in the world beyond that she had not gotten punched through the wall again.

>...very well, if you don't mind.

~Not at all, not at all~

The two behind him were forgotten, his entire body and gaze seemed locked in squarely on the Queen in front of him, one who never wavered in her powerful and imposing posture when he began to advance.

>Why are you building a castle outside of this place? Equestria has hundreds of areas that would be more... suitable for one like you.

~What can I say? I love the view.~

She let out a strangely subdued laugh when he twitched.

~Oh don't be like that, nobody else was using that area for obvious reasons, I asked, they gave the okay. It's not like they did it immediately, I had to save the world and this Empire at least twice before they said yes. Honestly they likely would have done it sooner if I didn't have a bad habit of drinking out of the chocolate milk carton.~

Though the alternate white stallion hummed thoughtfully, to no one else, a certain pink mare cursed her very name.

~And of course, this provides such a wonderful and consensual source of food for my little changelings, and of course should anything nefarious appear we are here to save it. Tested and proven, in case you were unsure.~

The changeling gave a prideful and dashing look. The alicorn of another world paid no mind to it, and instead sized her up as he walked closer.

>You're free to walk around the castle, in this case?

~Obviously. It wouldn't be very fair if I had to be watched all the time, would it? Not to them, I mean, I myself would love to be admired all the time, but alas, sometimes you have to go do other things. Important things?~

She smirked, giving a flippant brush of her hair when he walked around her.

>And neither of them have a problem with it?

2/5
>>
>>33623488

Just before he could get close enough to look at her closer, the Queen swiftly and slightly unnaturally curved away from him, subtly moving closer to this world's royal pair.

~Only when I find the closest where they hide the bouncy balls, but it's far too late by then.~

She never stopped smiling, even when his own faltered a bit.

>I admit, I thought they'd keep you on a tighter leash, metaphorically of course.

~They can use the regular ones if they'd like. I'm up for most anything.~

She gave a devilish wink.

>Are you now?

Just as his own had nearly slipped, her smirk almost dropped right off her face when he spoke back with a deep, and very engaged voice.

~Now now, don't tell me you're already thinking something uncouth.~

>What can I say?

He moved slightly closer.

>After so much went wrong in my world with you, something about a version everyone seems to trust has certain allures to it.

She didn't move away this time.

>Long, elegant, nothing I could appreciate before in my world considering her... circumstances. There's a lot I apparently missed out on.

Even when he drew so close, she could feel his breath, she never backed away.

>And I must say, it's so nice to see someone so... ta-

~Absolutely not.~

The stallion paused, the married pair blinked, everything about the world just seemed off kilter right now.

~You absolutely cannot be as tall as me.~

She measured again with her hoof, and came up with the same result.

~You cannot! Because that means you're taller than Celestia, and that's not allowed! She is the tallest pony and I'm taller than her! I'm taller than all ponies! What kind of lie is this? This is a lie to reality!~

He had been struck mute, no longer sure what to say after his advancement had not only been rebuked, it seemed to have gone wholly unnoticed in favor of her inspections of more important matters.

>What can I say?

3/5
>>
>>33623495

His smile back in place and the smoothness returning to his step, he tried to move closer again.

>I'm a lot bigger than you're used to.

The whole room went silent for a long, brief moment.

~Depends on the angle you look at it.~

He backed off once more, no longer sure if she meant in size, or in something else entirely. All that mattered is that she remained unimpressed, and focused only on measuring again and again to try to find some loophole that showed she was indeed taller.

>I can't tell if you're like my Chrysalis or not.

~Let me clear it up for you, I'm nothing like your Chrysalis...~

She looked back to the royal pair, smiled with all the warmth of a sunny day, and waved.

~You wouldn't understand why.~

She snapped back, her smirk just as cocky and sure as it ever had been before. His unsure gaze met her, still studying, still trying to deduce something beneath the surface.

~If you ever want a tour of the Changeling Hive, I'd love for you to see it. Shiny and Cadence can show you around, just ask them to take you on a tour. They know it rather well by now and can show you all the particulars. And of course... I'd love to see your world too someday, it sounds so very interesting.~

He didn't respond, even though she showed uncharacteristic patience in waiting for it to come. Soon, it was clear she had given up, and she waved to all of the room before she headed to the door just a bit faster than was needed.

~But for now, I must return to managing my Hive, I have a lot I need to set up for the future. Lots of big things coming... besides you, of course. I just wanted to ensure there weren't going to be any such incidents like the last visitor from your world brought.~

His smile returned.

>Of course not, I think you'll find I'm much more... open than the previous ruler of our world was.

~Wonderful, simply wonderful. Maybe next time we can have a longer talk.~

4/5
>>
>>33623499

She winked before she exited the room through the open door, though to whom none were entirely sure.

~Try not to regret missing out on so much for as long as you can. I do feel for you... but sometimes, ponies are just special.~

She left casually before, to the shock of the two silent rulers in the room, shutting the door normally. They heard her leave at an easier pace, and was gone.

>She seems fun.

The pair smiled, and something about that made the alicorn stallion's expression turn.

"You have no idea."

Nah it's like how I never really liked onions in the first place and my mom would try to keep force feeding me onions because she figured I'd stop hating it if I get used to eating it. She'd keep putting them in my eggs and I'd keep spitting them right back out. She still does it now, these days onions make me want to gag.

I auto skip SA stories like it's gonna make me gag if I don't. Those two months were filled with OoOC Shining and reactions revolving around him. He stopped existing, yet it was like he never left. People just wouldn't stop needing that Shining dick. At this point the only way my hate could get any worse is another even bigger Shining dick for people to gush over.

>Nah it's like how I never really liked onions in the first place and my mom would try to keep force feeding me onions because she figured I'd stop hating it if I get used to eating it.

Still me here, and I've got to say that's a terrible way of looking at it because it implies it's being forced on you or everyone's pushing it on you instead of just, well, people like writing this character because he's fun? You're looking at it all wrong and that's troubling to me.

>I auto skip SA stories like it's gonna make me gag if I don't.

That! That should not happen. That is not a normal reaction and it's very weird.

> Those two months were filled with OoOC Shining and reactions revolving around him. H

They were not, he barely had any OOCO during then and it's worrying to me you saw like, three stories in one thread and that's 'filled'.

Again, I'm not saying this as 'Shiny's cool you've gotta love him' perspective, but 'I like your writing and it's cool but reading your opinions on a character is worrying me'. Listen to your /pa/l here, I just want you to see it's weird! You don't have to like him, characters are great like that, but looking at it like this is... weird!

Kinda veered off at the end then and looped back around to
> it implies it's being forced on you or everyone's pushing it on you instead of just, well, people like writing this character because he's fun?
You almost got away from it but just before you realized changing from being gross to just being something other people eat that you don't, you slammed hard into
>They're clearly telling me I HAVE to eat them and are desperate to have me put them with it!
You just couldn't get away from the idea that someone is trying to make you eat them instead of just enjoying them and thinking it's weird how you react around them. They're onions. They're just onions! It's a food, your reaction to these things is weird. Seriously weird and it's worrying me a lot.

>I not gonna consume or make anything with onions, but enjoy them anyway.

See that's a slightly healthier way of looking at it, but you're not sticking to that and what you are focusing on is so weird! So weird! We didn't even ask if you liked onions at the start but now it's the whole thing somehow.

>Yep, but ya can tell Tia all about this later if ya want.

"She doesn't want to hear it!"

>A shame. But my question is how often do ya get reports from your agents?

"In general or specifically?"

>Let's go with both.

"I mean, it depends on what they're doing. Most of the time I receive a report every other day or once a week if things are slow. The longest I tell them to go without contacting me is a month, and that's only if they don't feel absolutely safe doing so within that time."

>What happens when the month is up?

"I send another agent to look for that one."

>And if another month passes?

"I send Jetset to drag them out of whatever booze related holiday they've been indulging in."

>Ah'm bein' serious.

"So am I! Every time I think they may be in trouble it turns out they're boozing it up or just forgot because things are slow. It's not a common occurrence, but these things stick out and a mare worries, Applejack! She worries!"

>So if Ah send mah agents out for, like, a week, Ah should be worried if they don't contact me after about two days and try to contact 'em?

"Well, like I said, it depends on what they're doing. And what agents? Like Jetset? I know we split him between us, but he's still one agent."

>That information is top secret. If Ah told ya, Ah'd have ta kilt ya. And Ah don't have one big enough for that rear of yours.

"Drat. I could use a change of wardrobe."

>...But seriously-

"Applejack. Remember what I've always told you: Let your heart be your guiding light."

>Y'all never told me that.

"Yes I have. It's always been my catchphrase."

>No it hasn't.

~~~

>Hrmph.

Perched atop a massive overgrowth of trees, so thick in it’s brush that she could not see so much as a branch directly beneath her, the Manticore guard of the ‘village’ down below waited with twin chainguns at the ready, scoffing at nothing at all.

>Hrmoh.

“What are you doing?”

Once more she scoffed, yet it seemed just as directionless as the previous ones.

“You’re moody.”

>Me not moody.

“Yes.”

>No.

“Yes.”

>NO!

The manticore snarled, yet the phoenix behind her never gave her the reaction she wanted. There was no fear, just as there had never been before. Only a cold and thoughtful pair of beady black eyes greeted her.

>Hrmph.

So, denied of her wants, the beast returned to her vigilance and cool aloof air.

“It’s because his smell.”

Everything snapped when the creature rose, her previous snarl was little more than a mewl in comparison to what she unleashed.

“It is.”

The phoenix flew on without fear, even when great paws with great paws on the end swatted at her beak.

“Are you jealous?”

She huffed and she roared and she snapped, but the great creature never so much as raised a paw in anger to her sister in bond.

>…it not fair.

She sulked instead.

>He am in that place again but not bring me. Me strong, me can protect him but him not want me come. Him go with her instead. Why?

Gentle wings laid across her back and a gentle voice came with it.

“They might take you.”

A growl came, warning of the sudden whirr of weapons coming alive.

>Me could beat them.

“Then what?”

They died down soon after.

“Would you run forever?”

>Maybe.

“Run from him?”

She, and her weapons, fell silent.

>Do…

She shuffled away from the wing, her large sides shifting so her own mighty wings could block her face from sight.

>Do you think him like her, more than me?

“…Jealous.”

>>
>>33625501

One word made the Manticore curl, her wings a shield from the world.

“No.”

Deft wings brought the phoenix before the furred face, never allowing her to curl back into her defensive hold.

>Then what? If not jealous, then what?

“Not what I meant.”

The great wide eyes looked up in curiosity.

“He does not love her as much. He loves you much more.”

Then, they filled with tears.

“You are special. You are Buttercup.”

The wings opened up, and allowed her sister to draw close.

“Tell him.”

Atop those trees, hidden from the prying eyes down below, a great beast and a cunning bird held each other in solace that only the other could truly understand. To know they were not whole, not yet, and they were not incomplete. Something was missing and something was there.

“He will prove it.”

Much had been discovered.

>…Okay.

There was still more to be found.

Applejack Two was ready to smile.

"Okay sissy, put on a biiiiig smile!"

To emphasize her point, the tips of each hoof stretched her own chitinous grin as far as it could go, her silly face matching her bright and childish glee.

Though her sister smiled as well, she seemed to share very little of the enthusiasm, more concerned with seeing whatever it was that had gotten her adoptive sibling so excited, and possibly ending that thing if it proved to bore her. Simply waiting for it to go away forever would to the trick, even if it wasn't as fun as her go to means.

"Smiiiiiiile! Ya' gotta look really pretty for Shining who ain't Shiny so he knows we're good! Iffin' ya' smile, he'll smile too, and then we can be friends! That's why we made ya' all pretty!"

Satisfied hooves brushed out the last of the wrinkles on the little fillies dress, failing every time. Even with those minor faults, the princess couldn't be more happy with how the baby looked.

"See? You're just like big sissy!"

She twirled to show off the outfit that mirrored the alicorns own, albeit a bit larger naturally. Bright pink colors and flowers and ribbons galore, Miss Rarity had done her masterwork to give an impression that lasted.

"He's gonna think yer' so pretty! Pretty sissy!"

"Bwah."

The little one remained unimpressed, thus drastic measures must be taken to ensure her smile.

"Prettty sissy!"

"Bwaaaahhhh."

"Pwetey Sissuh!"

"Bububahhh!"

"Pwbah sissah!"

"Bweee!"

She did so love funny faces.

The door to the study clicked unlocked, and the princess leapt with a start.

"It's time! Smile sissy!"

She hugged her fussing sister to her chest and waited, her heart beating in her chest with such rapidfire pace it threatened to burst. She felt so excited when she got to meet new ponies, she loved spending time with her two beloved guardians, to do both at the same time was simply as rare as it was delightful.

Two was ready to make someone smile.

>>33626243

"And in here you'll find the most valuable part of the castle by far. It has the greatest treasure in all the Empire.."

The door opened wide with a flourish. For a second, the changeling child happened to notice how strange it was to be on this side of some kind of opening. Seeing the two ponies with their hooves up and showcasing the inside from the back made it seem so strange in perspective.

Yet, as she so often did, she lost focus of that quickly enough. Something much bigger was waiting.

"Our darling children!"

Quite literally.

"Hello mister Shining! Ah'm Applejack Two, and this is my little sister! Flurry, say hi! Hiiiii!"

Though she attempted to 'encourage' a wave, the filly cared very little for it. Her entire attention was grabbed by the tall, almost luminous stallion who stood before her. It was all she could look at, all she cared to see.

"So there she is..."

And, likewise, so too did the stallion only seem to look at her.

"There she is..."

Giving up on trying to help a wave, the little changeling rose so that the stallion need not bend his neck so deeply to look upon her. It always helped to make a guest feel more comfortable, that's what her mother told her at least, and she did try so very hard to listen.

"It's nice ta' meet you!"

He didn't respond, and she didn't say anything afterwards either. She knew she should be polite and wait, yet couldn't shake the worry that maybe his world was different, and she was supposed to keep talking.

The changeling always felt so nervous when meeting someone strange to her. She had hoped his appearance being so close to a certain other stallion's would have made things far more smooth. Now, she worried if that was true.

"She's amazing..."

She beamed a little bit, happy she had finally been acknowledged.

Her wings wobbled a little bit when she realized he hadn't ever stopped looking at the little pony in her grip.

"Yep! She's the bestest little sister ever, and the cutest, right?"

2/7
>>
>>33626248

He continued to pay no attention to her words. Instead, he reached up as if to pet the tiny little filly.

He didn't quite reach before she was pulled back away from it.

"She uh... she don't like to be touched, mister Shining. You can ask mommy and she can help you, though!"

It was only now that the stallion looked up at her. The slight annoyance on his face was enough to make the changeling's heart jackhammer in her chest with fear, truly worried she had done something terrible to make him so upset and she hadn't even realized.

"It sure seems like it."

His sharp gaze cut back down to her. Or rather, her horn, which glowed with an unnaturally strong power.

"She feels very... powerful."

Though he did not touch, he still reached out as if to feel the air around her horn, to brush against the latent magic sharply cutting in the air.

"Very powerful."

"Yeah, she's kinda... kinda hard ta' hold onta' sometimes."

Right on cue, two great big wings snapped open and forced herself out of the changelings grasped.

"Sissy no!"

It was too late, as it so often was with the wild little thing. She shot forwards and flew around the new alicorn, looking on with quite vested interest into two particular parts as well.

"They're rather nice wings, aren't they?"

The little one did not know if he spoke of the bright pink and very large wings on her sister, or his own wings that he glanced to with admiration and pride before he spread them.

"Very much like yours."

That helped clear things up.

"Interesting, they seem bigger than Cadence's... more my size, actually."

He reached out with them, showing off the impressive size that he had been strangely coy about revealing until now. They had seen him in flight, they had seen him stand tall, yet it was only now when he stretched them far as they could go, that the ones in the room could appreciate just how massive they were.

>>33626252

Likely, had her favorite aunt been here, the changeling bet she would have gone on about bigger size needing bigger wings or stallions having more weight or something, and felt a pang of sadness it had not come to be. She missed her aunt, dearly.

"Very light coat too, guess she got a healthy chunk from you, didn't she?"

The stallion smirked at his smaller counterpart, who had little to offer in the way of that.

"Yeah, but she got mommy's good looks!"

The royal pair laughed, a true laugh that the changeling could taste in the air.

Yet the otherworldly stallion never so much as chuckled, only content to watch the baby play with his wings.

"You certainly got something, didn't you little one?"

It was shameful to think, and she knew it so, yet the changeling still felt a little better believing he had been responding to her, and not that he was merely talking to himself when the filly started ducking around him with divebombs.

"You seem very talented..."

He reached up, and brushed against her wings just when she passed by. The baby seemed to be displeased at that, and let loose a loud gurgle right before her horn lit up like a lighthouse.

"SISSY NO!"

A hoof shot out faster than even the changeling could fly, and snuffed out that light with a simple tap of a blue hoof against her horn. Whatever spell had been on the end of that hoof, it had done the trick and stifled the magic.

"And very, very powerful."

Albeit not before whatever was there left a single trail of smoke coming up from his hoof.

"Sorry, Mister Shining! She's normally a good filly, I think you just scared her. Sorry! She's really sorry too! Sorry!"

The changelings profuse apologies when she plucked the filly from the sky and brought her back away went unheeded. The stallion only seemed interested in one thing.

"She has nothing to be sorry for."

The last bit of magic fading away.

"You're both very, very lucky."

4/7
>>
>>33626257

The two who had remained silent throughout the entire exchange forced a smile when the tall one finally looked back to them, his own grin positively brimming with genuine excitement that seemed alien on his face.

"I hope you know what you have here, and how lucky you are to have it."

"We do!"

They both moved past, and stood side by side as they brought the young ones closer.

"We have two very beautiful and wonderful daughters, and we're the luckiest parents in the world to have them!"

The love, the kindness, the genuine smiles on their faces, all was enough to at last let the changeling put on one of her own once more, yet one a little more muted than it had been before.

"We just wouldn't be a whole family without them. Both of them."

To emphasize his point, the stallion gave a little squeeze to his hug around the elder daughter.

"We wouldn't trade either for the whole world."

The pink mare tried to do the same with the baby, though her efforts fell a little more flat when her squeeze was met with fussing and an upset baby who seemed only to want to get away.

"Sure."

The stallion noticed. It was all he could notice, since he had not looked away from her yet.

"The whole world seems just a little less important, doesn't it?"

They didn't quite know how to take that, so instead the stallion opted to change the subject.

"Uh ohhh, looks like someone's being a fussy baby!"

He plucked the child from his wife, holding her up just before she could thwap her right in the face with one of her great wings.

"Such a fussy baby, yes you are! Who's a fussy baby?"

An instinctual shield was all that saved his face from a bout of laser beam.

"Uh oh, someone's getting her horn tickles! Two, why don't you take sissy to Sunburst and see if he can tone her down before dinner, you can talk with mister Shining more after that, won't that be fun?"

5/7
>>
>>33626260

He had never, ever, asked her to go do something else when they had guests. A part of her didn't understand it. She couldn't show them around and smile and be fun if she wasn't around. How is she supposed to make friends if they don't get to talk, she wondered.

Yet, when he asked her to help with sissy, she had always said yes.

"Okay, Shiny!'

This time would be no different. She would see if her Crystaller would fix this problem first, then worry about talking more. She reasoned her parents must just be worried about him getting hurt, her sister was such a bright shooter when she got fussy after all.

"Nice ta' meet you, Mister Shining! We can talk more at dinner! But before that..."

Before she left, she reached into her bright dress and pulled out a bag, a special bag she had been saving for just such an occasion.

"Ah' want ya' ta' have some Marchmalleys! Trust me, they're the best thing ever, yer' gonna love them!"

Her heart soared when he finally looked at her. It began to fall when he seemed a little hesitant to take them.

"Ah' know, yer' worried cause ya' think 'how's she gonna eat some iffin' Ah' have it?' Well, no worries, cause Ah' got mah' own bag, this one's for you! Just for you!"

A moment more of hesitation brought her heart to a stop.

The world finally spun again when he took the bag.

"Thank you."

She positively beamed at that simple thanks. It didn't hold much enthusiasm or joy, yet that alone was enough to renew her hope.

Just because the hoof didn't step right the first time, didn't mean they couldn't dance! She thought that's how the phrase went at least.

"That's wonderful, Two! I'm sure he's happy you shared with him."

The stallion she knew moved her closer to the door, ushering her without ever once seeming he was pushing her on. She knew the subtle cues, she didn't need to be shoved, she understood when it meant she needed to hurry up.

6/7
>>
>>33626267

She reasoned they wanted sissy to be ready for dinner, and moved with him until they exited the room.

"You think he liked my dress, Shiny?"

The stallion she had come to know, and love, with all her heart smiled at her, and on any other day that alone would have been enough, and nothing more need said.

Just this one time, when he didn't say a word, something felt wrong about it.

"Nice ta' meet you, Mister Shining!"

She still smiled, she still waved, and she still spoke with cheer as she left with her sister in tow. She had to, it was how she had to make a good impression after all. She had to look good.

At least, until she was far enough away.

"Sissy?... Ah' don't think he liked our dresses."

Far away that nobody could see her droop down, just a bit.

Certainly not her parents, who subtly fumed internally at how the taller stallion had acted to their daughter, and certainly not the stallion in question who stared at the empty wall where they had gone with curious eyes.

"Huh. To imagine how things could have been."

He smiled to himself, and popped a single marchmalley in his mouth.

"How different things could..."

He paused, he chewed a bit, and slowly he gulped the treat down. After a long pause of staring into nothing with eyes wide enough they should see everything, he finally spoke once more.

"... this is the most amazing thing I've ever eaten in my life."

"Gah! Seriously? Ok. There. Is. Another-"

"Oh, thank goodness. Hello, Two! Hello, Flurry Heart!"

>And Mister Tempo's here! Hi!

~Bwah!~

>Do ya like me an' Sissy's dresses?

She does a little twirl and her smile widens when she sees him smile at her.

+You look lovely, Princesita. As do you, little balloon.+

Flurry uses Double Slap!

+Ow!+

>Sissy, no. Mr. Tempo's just teasin'.

"You both look great! But what brings you here? I thought you'd be showing our GUEST around with your parents for the day."

Two wasn't sure why Sunburst looked to Tiempo when he emphasized "guest", or why Tiempo's eyes seemed to reflexively glaze over.

>Ah was, but Sissy was gettin' fussy around Mister Shining, so Shiny told me to help ya calm her down for dinner.

"Oh, I see. MISTER SHINING, huh?"

>Yep! I call 'im "Mister Shining" 'cause he's Shiny, but not our Shiny, so it's polite and not as confusing!

"I see. So, what you're saying is that there are TWO SHINING ARMORS here?"

And once again, the pegasus's eyes glaze over.

>Yep! But he ain't Shiny Two. He's just Shining... Ah thought ya already knew that?

"I did. But SOMEONE refuses to accept that."

+What are you looking at me for?+

"There are two Shining Armors."

+There are two whatnows?+

"See? He just shuts down."

>What's wrong, Mr. Tempo. How come ya don't think there's two Shinys?

+To protect my mental health.+

>Oh! 'Cause it's kinda confusing, right? Ah get'cha.

+Yes. Confusing and not absolutely maddening that I now have twice the competition to contend with.+

>>33628097
Minutes after her birth, as her father held his child in his hooves, he was struck with a sudden revelation. A name, a noun, something that not only should be, but must be. It was as if the creator herself had decided for him what this child must be, for she would find her path to it's destiny no matter what path he laid before her. He knew, in that moment, what would lie upon her head, and how the world would not be as it should until they had met. At that moment, he said aloud her name.

"Diamond Tiara."

And it was so.

His wife then proceeded to say "Whatever" and get back to finally drinking again now that the little shit was out of her.

With a yawn, the Twilight Sparkle from another world trudges over to the control console of her airship and lazily plops into her seat.

Another day had come, but while her talk last night had done wonders for her spirit, her body was in desperate need of some concentrated caffeine to shake off the remaining grogginess the shower she took couldn't.

As she takes a sip from her mug, waiting as the calculations from last night load up on the screen and ignoring the various hails that that same frequency had been sending out since yesterday, a notification draws her attention.

Someone is approaching the airship. Though, unlike a certain dragon, this someone is approaching head on.

Switching the screen's feed to one of the cameras situated around the approach zone, her heart reflexively tightens at seeing the approaching figure.

She couldn't help it, after all.

Even though Spike sung her praises, and even though she held that same stubborn warmth in her eyes that she'd missed for so long...

Seeing Applejack fly towards her ship just reminded her of all the things that could've, should've, would've been had she been stronger.

"Twilight? You in there?"

The princess stops just at the tip of the airship, her eyes focusing on the bridge.

Twilight hesitates for a moment, but with the press of a button the ship's outer speakers activate.

>...Yes... Do you have anything to report regarding the fugitive's whereabouts?

"No. Ah do, however, have a request for ya."

>Which is?

"Move this blasted thing somewhere else!"

Following a stomp of her hooves, the orange mare gestures to Canterlot below.

>>
>>33628576
"Ah know ya'll aren't itchin' ta fight us, but the fact of the matter is that yer not doin' anyone down there any favors by havin' that thing hoverin' over us like a hawk. Folks down there are gettin' antsy and Celestia kicks like a mule when she sleeps, so Ah'd very much appreciate it if ya took your ship and put it down behind the mountain."

>...Is that all?

"Far as my request goes, yes. As for your report, we're still lookin' for other-me and... Ah understand that this is important to you. Ah don't understand HOW much, but we're not draggin' our hooves on this."

>...

"This ain't me demandin' you move. This is me askin' ya to think about how ya wanted things to look when ya first showed up and ask yourself if that's the image ya still wanna keep presentin' to a buncha innocents."

The alternate Twilight Sparkle couldn't help but grit her teeth. She was no stranger to guilt trips, let alone ones from an Applejack, but the sincerity in her voice stung like it hadn't in a long time.

Instead of feeling like there was no choice, like she HAD to do this or face the consequences of her superior, it felt like a call from one mare... one friend to another to just stop and think about things.

"...Twilight?"

Without a word, the airship's engines whirred a bit louder and the behemoth begins to move away from the city.

Perching at its tip, Applejack stays with the ship it until it finally touches down in a wide open field.

"Delight"
'Tempest'
~???~
~~~

This was not the time to panic.

"This is exactly when I'm going to start panicking."

No matter what Delight said. He didn't know anything, he was a pony. That's what Sebjek reasoned as he and said know-nothing-pony started to be lead towards the main airship.

"Okay, I don't want to sound like a worrywort or that I'm not willing to fight and d-... do things for my country, but we see the fleet, we know what we're up against, we know what they're doing and where they are. Do you have a plan?"

The Morlock almost froze, almost, before being spurred on by a slap on his flank from a very twitchy wing.

"Seriously! Give me the plan here, I need to know what I need to do!"

The morlock did not freeze, but he did not speak.

"Please! Plan! I get it, your plan so far worked, I'm on board with whatever it is you want to do and am very impressed, but we've got the information! Why are we still here? What are we waiting for? What's the way out?"

Again Sebjek remained silent, looking out over the vast swaths of airships visible from the windows outside.

"To clarify, I mean 'a way out' as in the one you have planned, or 'a way out to appear' as in we need one to show up. I'm ready for either. Because I can grab you, fly really fast, and get the loving love out of here before they decide to kill us."

>They probably will.

The pony jerked hard away from the morlock, his heart only six beats, exactly, from exploding right out of his chest like a ribeaterworm had been planted in his spine.

>Every time in my research, when the villain has the information they want, they kill the one who gave it to them.

"Research? As in, history? Old classified documents? Survivor stories?"

>Hayes Bonbond.

Eyebrows came together, cogs turned in a mind that wasn't as small as it looked he swore, and eventually the strained effort of putting both together ended up with him finally remembering where he had heard that name before.

1/3
>>
>>33628698

"Hey, buddy?... Is that a movie character?"

>Yes.

"As in, the movie character who is played by an actor."

>Yes.

"That's your research."

>Yes.

A sudden horrified realization struck the pony.

"You uh... you're not a secret agent, are you?"

The Morlock looked back, noting that the one called Tempest was currently engaged in a very loud shouting match with the short chubby one. Even though she clearly hadn't heard that, he still didn't quite understand.

>No? I am just a simple trader.

"You actually are. You're seriously, in fact, a simple trader."

>Yes.

"A civilian trader."

>Yes.

"Oh dear Faust."

A sudden, very brutal realization had just struck the pony.

"You're actually just a guy, aren't you?"

>...yes?

He was pretty sure that it would be followed up by a more brutal beating later. He wasn't sure against whom.

"Okay, here's what we're going to do. On my signal we jump off the side of the airship and haul flank back to Equestria, warn everyone, and then I see if sending civilians into dangerous situations is legal."

>Who are you going to ask?

"You know who."

>I don't.

"You-know-who."

>I don't?

"Orange-and-apples, who."

>...huh?

"Princesesss."

He hissed, low enough that it couldn't be heard over what sounded like a hoof smacking into the back of a furry head.

>Oh. Shouldn't it be obvious?

"Apparently not and I need to know if she knows about it!

>Couldn't she just make it a law either way?

He almost froze mid step. Almost, but not quite, because then the pony behind him would get closer and slap his flank to make him move again. He got enough of that in his dreams.

"Well shit."

>Princess of the red fruit is very wise.

"I doubt that immensely!"

He hissed, looking out the window with a soldier's gaze, noting all the different airships positions, how far away they are, and any path through them.

"Okay, I might have you just grab onto me and we fly out of here."

>Out there?

"Yes! Out there! Obviously!"

>>33628700

>Oh. Pony is very impressive, I did not know a pegasus could outfly airships. You are much more impressive than let on.

The pony considered for some time if he was joking or not, and realized it would hurt either way so took the win.

"Fine. On three, I'll create a distraction, and then we get the heck out of here. One, Two-"

The door opened up right on cue.

"...ohhhhh, shi-"

The Kirin Queen sighed when the other Queen walked in, smoke trailing behind her.

"What did they do now?"

>Set things on fire.

She waited, patient, in hopes there would be some explanation following that. As the seconds ticked away, she realized the folly of her dreams

"That's it?"

>Specifically, those things were those oil canister things for your street torches.

"That seems a lot worse, you should have started with that."

>It's fine, don't worry.

"But how will they see in the dark now?"

>I stuck them on poles that don't burn, now everyone has light in the night!

She looked so proud of herself.

"Won't that make them mad?"

>Oh, they're absolutely pissed off.

In the distance, she could hear their screams.

>it's glorious to see. And bright! They'll be burning through the night.

"That's... wonderful?"

>I'm making great use of the rogues, and everyone else is improving. Most are at least able to go Nirik without growing out of control, but some require a more hooves on approach.

"You seem to have a lot of experience with this."

>Meh.

In fire and flame, a transformation happened again. This one merely was a little more changeling shaped was all.

>My soldiers were the finest warriors in all of the hives, bread to battle against foes ten times their size and win in their wars. They needed absolute control of power, and of self, and then and only then would I allow them to serve in my army.

"Oh my."

The kirin's tail should not have been wagging, this was not a wagging moment, yet there it went.

>I have experience, is all.

"Then I'm so fortunate you came, aren't I?"

>You are.

"...so are you going to put out the fire?"

>The wha-Oh damn it.

Even with the fire out, the Kirin Queen's opinion hadn't changed.

>Do you think I have what it takes to be a secret agent?

"Do Ah think a cocky and lazy fool who coasts through life by the skin of his teeth and the mark on his flank has what it takes to be part of a profession where diligence and secrecy is key?"

>I assume you are referring to me with those descriptions. Which is odd because I am not lazy.

"THAT's what you pick up on?"

>Well, yeah. My cockiness and on-the-fly-thinking are part of my charm-

"WHAT charm?"

>-but I'm not lazy. I just prefer not to work harder than necessary.

"So you're lazy."

>No? Lazy would be me not wanting to work at all. I do what I'm supposed to. Generally speaking.

"But nothin' beyond that, which is laziness as far as Ah'm concerned."

>So what you're saying is that you think I'm good, but I could be amazing?

"What Ah've been sayin' is that ALL OF YOU should stop settlin' for good enough and push for better."

>Well, I appreciate the vague vote of confidence you have in all of us, but I'd rather not burn myself out for nothing.

"The betterment of Equestria isn't 'nothing'."

>But it is a kind of vague and neverending goal, and I already have one of those. I'd at least prefer something more concrete as a stepping stone to that betterment, you know?

"Finishin' all this paperwork that mouth of yours keeps earnin' you isn't enough?"

>I was thinking more along the lines of a reward, really.

"Like what?"

>Hmm... How about seeing you genuinely smile for once?

"Is this you tryin' to be charmin'?"

>No, just honest. I'm not asking you to "smile for me, shweet-heart" but it'd be nice if there was... progress, I guess.

"I've smiled plenty of times, ya might've seen it if you didn't love actin' like a fool so much."

>It's headin' to the train station! We gotta stop it here!

"If we don't, it's gonna take a mornin' train goin' an~y~where~!"

With mad speed, Scootaloo moves past her friends, catching up to the sapling-vine-thing as it neared the edge of the train platform.

Despite having no discernible facial features or eyes, it looks back at them with a solemn, determined look before jumping(???) onto the tracks.

"GASP!"

>Scootaloo! Nooooooooo!

But her plea was too late. The orange filly dived after the falling sapling-creature-thing, into the path of an oncoming train.

And so came the tragic end to Scootaloo's life story of various poor decisions.

At least, it would have been had a simple word not been uttered.

+Regalia.+

That's when a flash of gold appears behind the two watching fillies, heralding the appearance of a golden hand that shoots forward and pulls the falling filly back to safety out of the train's way...

Which, now that they atually stopped to look at, was actually being drawn into the station by four stallions that were already slowing to a stop by the time they showed up.

One of the stallions did, however, end up stepping on the sapling, releasing spores into the air and sending his fellows into a coughing fit.

>...

"..."

~RARGLEBARGLE!~

>...Scootaloo's alive!

"Yay!"

>But who could have pulled off such darin' heroics?

"Who?"

They both turn to see a unicorn mare, her horn glowing with red magic, staring at them.

>It's a person we don't know!

"Thank you, Ms. Person! Thank you for saving our friend!"

+You're welcome?+

~RELEASE ME! RARR!~

Raising an eyebrow as the filly bites at the air, the mare releases her magical hold... and she dives onto the tracks anyways.

~*animalistic eating noises*~

>"..."

+...Is your friend alright?+

>"Skipped breakfast."

+Ah.+

"I miss this actually."

[There we were, at the store, getting supplies when it gets robbed at knife point. We swore to Granny Smith that we'd bring her the knitting needles no matter what. We figured the robber couldn't stop us all, so we dove at the robber with our knitting needles and subdued him. We were heroes that day. Cousin Peach lucked out and was only stabbed 3 times not counting the knitting needles that she accidentally stabbed herself with. Ended up getting them fer' free.]

'Yeah free knitting needles after getting stabbed because why not?'

"I mean it makes sense. She bled on them. Who else is going to want bloody knitting needles?"

They want to, they need to, but ultimately others just can’t help out no matter how much they want to. It’s not easy, its not simple, but it’s something they need for themselves. You get it?”

Now, for those curious, what the original plan was, Spoiler related was supposed to be at the tail end of Blue, when the pair were all by themselves. Then Joe got dragged across the country and couldn't finish it, I would have taken another week to do it myself after the final battle I had to focus on, it was a mess. So, it never came to be.

Or... did it?

It wasn’t long after the ‘meeting’ that the pink princess made her way from the room, yet the pair did not follow her.

“Hey, Shining? Can we talk for a second?”

One held back the other, despite his much more impressive size. A simple word was all that was needed as soon as the princess had gone from the room.

“Sure, about what?”

Though the stallion’s face was calm, almost innocent, it would be impossible to miss the barely hidden bundle of upset feelings toiling away beneath the shorter of the pair. It took several calming breaths before he could be calm enough to summon magic to finally shut the door, and several more before he could speak again clearly.

“I’m giving you a lot of benefits of the doubt here. I know that you, specifically your universe, have had very bad run ins with the changelings, I know things got worse, things turned sour fast, and that had to leave a lot of really bad thoughts and memories with you. I understand that, I really do. I also understand that for you, personally, the topic of changelings is sour. Out of everyone in the whole world right now, I think I’m the only one who can really understand that particular sore spot that likely hasn’t healed for you. I know, like you know, what happened, and how we felt afterwards. I’m giving you a lot of leeway here, I understand you. But that’s why I made it clear who she was and what she meant to me before you ever came here, you acted completely inappropriately and you have to-“

The stallion stopped his rant suddenly, one eye beginning to twitch when he noticed that while it appeared the other stallion was listening, he was also in the middle of doing something that undercut a lot of the attention he was giving.

“Stop that!”

1/6
>>
>>33637210

The white hoof froze mere inches from his mouth, the soft fluffy treat on the end of it balancing precariously near it. He remained still, unmoving, and seemingly listening to the smaller royal.

Then it began to edge closer to his mouth.

“Stop that!”

He nodded, accepting.

Then popped the thing right between two white lips and happily munched away.

“You need to listen to me.”

“I am listening! I hear you! It’s just...”

Another small white square went down into his mouth.

“These things are addicting. Crazy addicting. I’ve had marshmallows before, who hasn’t, but these things are just… weirdly strong! What’s in them?”

“Love.”

Once more he froze, now unsure about the food in his hold.

“See? If this is going to make you stop, you’re obviously... seriously?”

In response, the tall alicorn shamefully chewed.

“You realize the changeling you just acted so rudely to is the one who made those.”

Yet again the hoof stalled.

For once, it remained still.

“Really? But... they have branding.”

He squinted at the bag, emblazoned by a bright and colorful sign that said “Malleys!” Upon the strange wrapping. It wasn’t quite plastic, yet it didn’t feel flimsy or cheap.

“Auntie Pinkie showed her how, she even showed how to make non-plastic wrappers. She was worried it would taint the flavor.”

He studied each one with a new eye. It did seem a little more fluffy than expected, now that he knew enough to ponder it. The quality, no doubt, was quite high class.

“Why?”

“She got upset when she realized how much we were spending on it, found out the materials were far cheaper to make a lot more, found out she could share, and that was that.”

The bag crinkled in his hooves as they examined it. Turning, twisting, checking it over and over. The more he looked, the more care he realized had been put into a simple bag.

He snorted when he realized it even had dietary information.

2/6
>>
>>33637214

“She did all of this because she loves it when they make others happy... because they made her happy. Because she wasn’t when she had them the first time. She was scared, and worried that things would come down, and feeling like she didn’t know where her home was.”

The voice had begun to crack before he stopped, taking just long enough to recollect it before returning once more.

“She wasn’t a thing that hurt us. She wasn’t one of those creatures who tried to break out home. She wasn’t a monster... she was a scared little filly who didn’t know where she belonged, yet, and these things? They helped with that. They helped show her there was something here for her, something that could make her happy. Something she could share.”

All through the speech, the tall alicorn hadn’t even looked to his unicorn double.

He still did not.

“That’s why she made those just for you, so you could see that even though you weren’t in your home, there’s something for you here. She wanted you to feel welcome, like she had been. Because she cares.”

Not until the silence lasted so long, he had no choice except to look and see the frowning face.

“So even if you can’t treat her like what she is, my daughter, at least treat her as a little filly who just wants you to notice she put on a dress because she thought you’d like it. Even if you don’t think so, the truth is, I’m special to her, and I take this very seriously. And I am never, ever, going to let someone with my face disappoint her like that.”

Two faces, so very similar, so very alike, frowned at each other for some time. Neither held real malice or anger, one barely held anything at all when it looked to the righteous defensive one that was it’s mirror. They stayed like that, both seeming to wait for the other to make a move, to try something.

It was the alicorn who finally did just that, with a smile.

>>
>>33637217

“I guess I should apologize. So… Sorry. I was trying not to react negatively to her, seeing her face made me think of the past. The terrible… terrible things that happened before. You know what I mean.”

He did.

Without question, he did understand, and that’s why he let the intense glare finally drop.

“I guess seeing her just made me think of that day, back when we were still under her control. She could have been ours, couldn’t she?”

Most of the fire in his heart was extinguished, put out by the wash of cold that rushed over his heart when he thought of those days, that time, those events in his life. He had moved past it, he knew. He did not let them hold sway over him, not anymore.

“I thought about that time a lot afterwards. More than you, I guess.”

He would not begrudge the other for lacking the same feeling.

“I guess I went overboard trying not to negatively react, guess I figured not looking right at her would at least keep me from looking upset. Can see that backfired…”

The alicorn turned around and made his way to the door before any response could be made, opening it wide and gently nodding to insist they move on.

“I’ll try better this time. It’s pretty obvious she’s… important, isn’t she?”

“That, myself, is an understatement.”

The casual air was back , the smiles on both sides were back, and everything seemed to be back to what they should be when the smaller of the pair followed him.

Perhaps it was desperation to see himself as he wished it, taller, stronger and yet still a good pony, yet the prince found himself willing to push his feelings aside and let the other version of himself try anew. Mistakes had been made, yet could be forgiven, he reasoned.

He understand wanting to make those mistakes, after all.

“Come on, we’ve got dinner soon, try to behave yourself?”

“I make no promises, my jokes get rowdy sometimes. Guard barracks have no ears, after all.”

>>33637219

The large elbow nudged him and brought back waves of nostalgia. It had been fun back in the day.

Idly, the shorter stallion wondered what Spearhead was up to.

“I’ll keep it safe for kids though, innuendo they would miss only!”

“They live around “Not-mom”, they get it.”

“This is such a weird place…”

It felt good to be smiling again.

“But a good one. Things worked out better here, didn’t they?”

“In some ways.”

“Heh…”

The taller stallions smile turned sad.

“I think I know why, too.”

The others, curious.

“Oh? What’s that?”

“Isn’t it obvious? I think the Cadence in my world reacted… worse, I guess, to the wedding.”

“What do you mean?”

The last of the smile had gone, leaving only sadness.

“I don’t know how to put it. Back when we were dating, it was all wild, and crazy, and every kind of ‘fun’ under the sun, wasn’t it?”

A bright blush spread across the stallion’s face.

“Yeah, she was pretty wild. Got us banned from the Gala that time.”

“You too? Ha! Some things never change. But after the wedding, things… changed.”

“What do you mean?”

“…Don’t worry about it. Let’s just say things obviously went a little different for you, she didn't change quite as much.”

He hadn’t even seen it emerge, yet one second there was a bare hoof, the other it held a single one of the bright pink feathers that had been on his daughter’s wing.

“Obviously…”

It suddenly vanished in a flash of light, tossed away without ever leaving a mess.

“But, for the better. No point in dwelling on that, you avoided it and I am, lets just say, far past that and much happier with my current crop on the field. Let’s go meet, eat and…”

The blue magic on his horn seemed to turn a little sorrowful.

“…see if I can apologize enough to get a refill.”

>>33637223

For as imposing as he could look sometimes, the stallion could pull off an impressive wibble when he wanted to.

The way he looked when he shook the now empty bag upside down in hopes of Mallycrumbs to appear would have his daughter holding up tens across the board.

“I’m sure she will…’

He tried to focus on the amusing sight in front of him, yet he just couldn’t stick to it. Something about what he had said was bothering the prince of the Empire. Something was sticking with him, and he couldn’t quite shake it off.

“Excellent! Let’s go then, and make your daughter smile.”

He could only push it aside, knowing it would be back later.

“Both of them, of course.”

It would have to wait.

>Stop bothering them.

To anyone else, had they been on the road mere miles out from the peak of Canterlot, they would have likely thought the place haunted when a voice suddenly rang out from seemingly nowhere at all.

"Tell them to stop getting in my way."

They would have been sure it was haunted when a voice answered right back.

>No, they're doing a good job, you stop.

"No one told you to go and look for her."

>Actually, my Queen was so impressed that I-

"We."

>-figured out where her beau was, that she said she wouldn't be upset if she found out I was looking for this one.

"That does not sound like her telling you to look for anything. In fact, it sounds like the broken resignation of a far inferior Queen to my own who realized she cannot even keep a lacking agent on a leash."

>Well, what did yours say?

"Shut up, that's what."

>She didn't tell you to look for her?

"She, unlike your Queen, knows of my abilities and asked me to find her. She knows that within mere hours, I will have her returned."

>It's been over a day.

"Mere hours from this point."

>Damn it, I really don't have time for this.

"Then leave."

>Fine.

The forest fell into deathly silence, not even a bird tweeting to break the noise.

"You didn't leave."

>GAH!... Wait, why are you still here!?

"I knew you could not sense me."

>I wasn't trying to, I was trying to figure out the quickest route to the nearest train station.

"Taking a train? Pathetic."

>Oh, what, you cross country by walking?

"As an agent should. Unseen, undetected, unknown."

>Okay, so, what I do just by turning into a random pony and getting on a train?

"Shut up."

>No, you shut up!

Once more, empty silence.

>I did not think that would work.

"I'm waiting for you to leave."

>Fine.

Not a sound was made, not a single rustle of the leaves or the crackling of branches. Not even wind to break the deathly still.

>Are you following me!?

Until that.

1/4
>>
>>33638709

"No, you happen to be going in the direction I'm searching, coincidence? I think not, stop tracing my path."

>Fine, okay?

Once more, silence-

>Stop following me!

"Mere coincidence."

>How!?

"I told you, you just so happen to be going in the path I am taking."

>I went on a wildly different route that time!

"Then as with most events, you merely lucked into choosing the right way. Your fortune outfavors your mind yet again."

>Why are you so angry at me?

"I'm currently on a mission, not in couples counseling."

>I have enough couples thank you!

"I saw that."

>And stop stalking me with that!

"It is my job."

>Well then do your other job and leave!

"Very well."

...Silence-

>I didn't mean go slightly to the side and then stop!

"I'm plotting my course."

>Why!? Why are you-wait, are you waiting for me to move?

"Of course not."

>You... you're waiting for me to get up and go, aren't you? Then you're going to follow me!

"Absurd, if I wanted to play the lottery, I'd load a bullet into the chamber and pull the trigger. I'll be left with more intact brain cells that way."

>If you want to go in my direction, just say so.

"You are mistaken, and a fool if you think I'll fall for such deflection. You are merely pressing your own desire to follow me onto someone else in hope they will not see the truth. Obviously."

>Fine, then go ahead!

"And thus, he reveals his plan."

>I'm serious, go on, go whichever way you want, and I'll go the opposite.

"Surely you don't think I'll fall for that."

>I'm serious, whichever route you pick, no matter what it is, I go the other way. That's on my Changeling Honor.

"That's an oxymoron."

>Go!

"...Very well."

Silence, at last.

>You didn't move at all.

"Yes I did."

>I can see you!

"No, you can't."

>I can literally see you, right this second!

"You're lying."

It was almost refreshing that the silence be broken by a rustle of branches, something flying through the air, and a muted grunt.

2/4
>>
>>33638713

>There! See?

"Don't know what you're talking about."

>I just hit you!

"That's a joke, you couldn't hit me if I was glued down."

>You have a knife in your shoulder, right now!

"Of course not."

The rustle returned, and another grunt of pain in there.

"See? You clearly are the one with a knife in your shoulder."

>Okay, one, I should have seen that coming-

"Obviously, if you had the skill."

>-two, you clearly see how this proves where you were, right?

"...no it doesn't."

>Are you fucking kidding me!?

"You are loud."

>Who cares! We can clearly see each other enough to get stabbing!

"You hit a tree, and it clearly did not like it."

>Bleeding, on the ground, right now!

"Trees bleed, it's called sap. Any relation? I've heard that said around you a lot-'

>Oh dear Love, I can't believe you're the only guy I hang out with.

Real, deathly silence followed that. No more subdued noises, no more anything, just silence.

"Fine, I might be utilizing your abilities, which have shockingly proven to be a little above average in regards to tracking. I might just barely admit finding the dropout or Sunset were something I couldn't do."

>Thank you! Finally!

"That is the closest you will ever come to me complimenting you. I'll make you a deal, help me find this mare and I'll make sure you don't end up in the infirmary half dead from yet another botched mission you've done."

>...I hate that you're actually making a good offer here, considering.

"I'm well aware of the fact if our medical care wasn't free, I'm pretty sure Equestria would literally own you several times over."

>Unlike reality, where that's you?

"Funny, I didn't know you could tell jokes. Do changelings eat and then regurgitate humor as well?"

>No, we only puke if it's as bad as yours.

"At least when you finally realize your lacking abilities, you can make a living letting ponies laugh at you."

~S-shut up!~

Silence.

"What the utter fuck is that thing?"

3/4
>>
>>33638717

More rustles, a grunt of pain, and then silence again.

>That 'thing' is Bubbles, and you will treat her as such.

~Y-yeah! B-b-be nice!~

"Is she afraid of me?"

>She's afraid of a lot of things.

"...the giant, and when I say that I do in fact mean that, giant Timberwolf that looks like it could tear the castle of Equestria apart is afraid of 'a lot of things'."

>Mostly needles.

~EEP!~

>I'm describing them, sweetie, I'm not using them.

"Is there a reason you brought this one?"

>Because the vast majority of decoys, paths and magic that Applejack used is plant magic, which Bubbles just so happens to be uniquely able to detect, sniff out and find differences in to a level that even the greatest terramage would find beyond their ability. She can search out even the faintest hint of empty magic, and avoid it while we search out the lingering residue she would have left behind as she walked away. If there is so much as a twinkle on the grass left by a hoof, she can smell it, and she will find it. Of all the beings in all the world, none are better to track her down than this one. And that, Jetset, is why my Queen believes in me.

Silence, real, almost broken silence.

"...Yes, well, your knives look like snot."

Strangely, a rustle.

>Buttercup, keep looking.

~Want to talk more?~

>No.

~Okay.~

The shadows of the treeline moved, even if there wasn't a single sound to accompany it. For a massive creature of wood and fangs, she could be rather quiet when she wanted to be.

"You sound tense."

>Mh.

"...Was it the knife comment?"

>That cut me deep and you know it.

"Consider it even for you stabbing me in the flank."

>I will not.

Without another word, without a sound, two agents from two different worlds got to work to find their wayward royal.

~Seven and Pony talk a lot, do all A-gents do that?~

>...yes.

Nether would Altwi or the others, she's unique in that not only would she be able to track AUJ like nobody else could, being literally part wolf part magic plant, but she's the one wildcard nobody could possibly plan for, because even if someone could get a Timberwolf before, they couldn't get them to talk.

+Pftt...+

>Oh, good, she laughed! Kinda. Ah was beginnin' to feel a little dumb continuin' that bit...

+Well, at least you didn't haphazardly jump out in front of a train.+

"Yeah, that would have been REALLY dumb!"

~My stomach is full. That is all that matters.~

>But, in all seriousness, thanks. What's your name, anyways?

+You may call me Vermillion.+

>Can Ah call ya Ms. Vermy?

+No.+

"How about Villi-Milli?"

+Absolutely not.+

~How about Vivi?~

+How very coincidental, but just call me Robin if "Vermillion" is too much.+

>Ok! What brings you to Ponyville, Robin? Are ya joinin' the Guard here?

+No. I partly came here looking for that Apple Bloom thing.+

"Hey, now! That's not nice! Applebloom's not a mere thing! She's an equine being with equine feelings and equine dreams!"

>Ah got a feeling she's talkin' about Scootaloo's breakfast and not me.

+Your name's Apple Bloom?+

>Yep!

+Apple Bloom, as in the sister of Princess Applejack?+

>The one and only! Of me, I mean, 'cause there's another Applejack here.

~That means there's another you, though.~

>Yeah, but she ain't here, so I'm still the one and only Applebloom!

+You wouldn't happen to have seen the Alternate Princess Applejack recently, would you?+

>Nope! Why?

+Because Princess Applejack told me, among others, to find her and make sure she's ok.+

>Why... wouldn't she be ok?"

+...You heard about that monstrous airship that appeared yesterday, correct?+

>Well, yeah.

"Kinda hard to miss."

~I don't miss that stomach-ache we got. Blegh.~

+Well, in an admittedly impressive display of magic, she tried to shoot it out of the sky.+

+It... didn't quite work out as intended.+

AFTER SHINING GETS DUNKED IN PURPLE!

“Hey, Chrysalis! Check this out!”

~…~

“Chrysalis?”

~Shining I think I want to fuck your sister.~
>>
>>33641002
... and the problem is?
>>
~~~

“Almost…”

Flickering magic danced across the screen, magical symbols interlocking, weaving within one another, each time bringing a string of floating numbers just a little closer together.

“Almost…”

Little by little, number by number, until finally the symbol in the center of it all began to stop moving. Its edges, its rings, its markings, and finally most important of all.

“YES!”

Its core stabilized.

The one in the chair did not, and got to spinning.

“Yes yes yes yes yes! I knew I was the smartest Twilight! This proves it, empirically!”

“Ooo~ Empirically. Someone brought out the fancy words to feel smart.”

The last shred of joy and happy spins came to a slow death, one that died little by little with every turn of her spinning chair until finally, it came to a stop.

“What do you want, Sunset?”

By coincidence or intent, the chair’s movement ceased in just the right way to square a glare right at the pony trotting into the room.

“Well, I had heard you cheering in joy, so I figured you’d finally gotten your act together and found the wayward glorified battery we need. I was coming to congratulate you.”

The purple face remained flat, and emotionless.

“I see my expectations were way too high.”

“For your information, this is a side project, one that is still very much important, I’ll have you know.”

A quick flash of magic activated the machine behind her, and it heeded her call by producing a small, flat disk about the size of her head.

“Not everything revolves around Shining’s pet project, you know, some of us have a whole bunch of projects we can work on in the meantime.”

The disk flew off, seemingly without needing any input from thea alicorn before it reached the door. Curious, if nothing else, the unicorn pressed the open button with her mechanical arm, and off it went.

She offered no more explanation after it had gone, merely resumed her work.

1/5
>>
>>33641210

“Shining’s “pet project” is bigger than anything else you’re doing, I can assure you that. No matter how important what you think you have is, nothing could compare to a fraction of what we’ve made in there. Something that won’t happen until a certain someone gets off her purple ass and brings me the pony’s power.”

“I’m working on it.”

A thousand screens around her, yet never did she bother to even try to explain what any of them meant. As much as she loathed to admit it, the unicorn might be the only one in this world who could come close to understanding it.

“You need to start sending agents.”

All were dismissed with a single angry swipe of her hoof.

“That’s stupid, and you know it. One time someone stumbles upon them, and all tartarus is unleashed on us. They’ll clamp down hard and protect her if they feel we’re utilizing such horrible means to capture her, then all of this will be for nothing.”

“You’d win in a fight.”

“That’s not the point!”

Two hooves slammed down hard, shaking her chair with the force and denting her foreleg rests nearly until they broke off.

“…How much has he told you about his pet project?”

The alicorn scoffed, dismissing her with a wave.

“He told me all about the potential exploration abilities of the portal, and I agree with him. The potential for mostly lifeless planets to be stripped of resources is vast, more than you can comprehend. Imagine an entire planet that’s all but dead but filled with ores for the diamond dogs, gemstones for the dragons, fish and aquatic creatures for the hippogriffs, the list is endless. I know you need her to power the portal, but that doesn’t mean I have to like dealing with you.”

Her glare turned hard, and cold.

2/5
>>
>>33641214

“I just needed to pick up a newspaper to learn everything you’ve done, Sunset, and frankly even though Shining is promising a means to revive your “Chitania’, I don’t know if it’s possible. His theories on that, what did you call it, “Hivemind” seem pretty flimsy, imagining her as she was coming back out with her mind in tact from such a place, even assuming it is real, seems unlikely at best. You’d be far better off just accepting that she’s dead, she’s gone, and if by some miracle there is some kind of magical mental residue remaining, trying to give it peace by leaving it alone. Your Chitania is dead, accept it.”

Normally, upon such angry words, the royal assumed the other would snap, get angry, dismiss her or at least laugh for her stupidity that she ‘couldn’t see’ as it so often was.

Instead, all she gained for her words was a single yellow eyebrow lifting up, curious.

One waited for the other to respond. The second seemed to have nothing to say at all.

“But fine, I accept that you know more about the portal than me and you seemingly have proven means to reach this ‘hivemind’ as you put it, so for nothing else than science I’ll bend the knee and let Shining do what he wants.”

The yellow pony snorted, and seconds later a flush crossed the purple face.

“You know what I meant.”

“Do I?”

She sang with a smile, and the princess had enough.

“I have work to do, so go back and… I don’t know, tinker with your readouts to make sure they’re right, or even better, take off that horrible thing and get a real robot leg back.”

“Huh, would have sworn you would have told me to put on my real one.”

“…why would I do that?”

She seemed strangely curious, something that finally seemed to reach the unflappable unicorn.

“Nevermind. But you’re right, I am bored, maybe I should see what your brother is up to?”

3/5
>>
>>33641218

She needled, clearly looking for a response, be it good, bad or anything in between.

She once more was offset when the pony shrugged, seeming numb to the entire idea.

“He’s visiting his other version right now, but you can see if he’ll tend to you when he gets back.”

Just like that she went back to work.

The yellow mare was left uncertain. The princess she knew was many things, calm and collected on such matters was not one of them.

“I was joking, I don’t have any interest in him.”

“If you say so.”

Thankfully, for one of their sake at least, the future discussion was cut off when a Wonderbolt suddenly strode into the room unannounced and uninvited, holding in their hooves a simple long rectangular box that they presented to the mare on her chair.

It put the unicorn at such ease when she saw the alicorn every bit as confused as she was.

“Okay? And this is…”

The box was taken, opened, and its contents lifted out soon enough.

“A feather?”

Pink, strangely long yet seemingly still having some of the light fluff only present in baby pegasi as their wings began to molt and grow. It seemed much too large to be an infants feather, yet much too juvenile to be an adults.

Thankfully for both in the room, there was a letter and instructions within to clear things up.

“Excuse me, what?”

Or so it had seemed.

“What is it?”

The mare honestly shrugged, holding up both feather and note as if they were foreign objects that had fallen from space.

“Shining wants me to test this to see how much… I can’t believe I’m saying this, how much is alicorn and how much is regular pony?”

It clicked in the unicorns might like the sun rising to bring the dawn.

“Ohhhh, that’s hers. I get it.”

“Hers?”

“…how far into reading those newspapers did you get?”

The pony stared, uncomprehending.

“You avoided looking up anything about your brother or his wife, didn’t you?”

Long, slow blinks followed.

4/5
>>
>>33641221

“Well… the parts that didn’t involve you, at least? I was a little afraid of seeing what… what came after. Why? Did something happen?”

The laughter that exploded from the mare would have put Pinkie Pie herself to shame.

“Sunset? I don’t get it, what happened? Are there half-pony alicorns running around now? False alicorns with transplanted parts? I thought about trying that but found it wasn’t very sustainable, did they figure it out in your world? This seems a little young, maybe the stem cells from youth would… Sunset? Hello?”

Still positively exploding with laughter, the mare had to leave the room.

“Sunset who’s her? Why’s he asking this? This doesn’t make any sense, when we ascend we… “

Just before she left, however, she cast one final spell. One last flicker of magic, very simple, very basic. Nothing more complicated than changing the letters on the mug on her desk.

“…Number one WHAT?!”

Even long after she had gone, the laughter echoed down the halls.
