This list is to provide essential, boiled down basics of major events occurred during every thread. This list is to allow a quick scanning of what has happened to get new readers up to speed. If you want more specifics on any single character, it is advised you use the individual pages dedicated to them, or if you want expansion on a story in particular it is advised you use either the pastebin, or ask in the current thread for an archiver. These are the barebones basics of what happened every thread.

Thread 1 Edit

  • Everything is wrong with Equestria, and it's all Celestia's fault.
  • Applejack becomes a princess after Celestia reveals that Equestria is in disarray, and needs a down to earth outlook to make things better
  • It turns out Luna is also avoiding doing any political or economical work.
  • All of Canterlot's guard are horribly incompetent, due to Shining Armor being very lax in their training and discipline
  • Blueblood's insane level of spending is discovered, and severely reduced after Applejack demands such.
  • The Crystal Empire is in a likewise state of disarray, with Cadence overspending by the boatload for haircare, hoofcare, spas and other such treatment to look good. Also, she cannot count.
  • Shining Armor is currently neglecting his own duties due to the fact he is currently feeling neglected, he is not very respected in his kingdom, nobody else even considers him a prince, he feels belittled by his wife and sister being an alicorn while he is not, Celestia is being hostile towards him, and his wife is ignoring him to the level she did not notice when he had been gone for over a week, and neither of them had been 'intimate' in months.
  • In desperation, he decides what he really needs to get respect is some wings, and begins a long journey to become an alicorn... it just keeps failing.
  • He also spends most of the thread being put down, beat up, and other such things.
  • The one exception is Twilight, who has an almost obsessive, overly-critical need to watch out for him and make him happy.
  • Sombra returns and demands to see the ruler of the crystal Empire! Shining Armor confronts him... and is immediately told by Sombra that he wants to see the REAL royals. When Shining Armor points out that he's the prince, Sombra points out he counts one throne up there, and Shiny doesn't seem like the 'pink and glitter' type. Despondant, Shining points him towards Cadence, and decides he might go... 'shave' in the tub a bit.
  • Following this, Sombra is very easily destroyed once more.
  • Fluttershy, feeling left out and helpless, is made an Alicorn by Discord, and is given the ability to "Counter" and end his magic. She mostly just uses it to make hims stop causing chaos.
  • Initially, they tell Discord to knock it off, so he briefly shoots around his powers and makes random ponies, and one time Spike, alicorns before stopping abruptly and solemnly swearing to make nobody else and Alicorn ever again.
  • Coincidentally, Shining Armor shows up right at that moment... and reconsiders shaving in the tub.
  • Rarity is randomly made an Alicorn simply to spite Applejack
  • Shining Armor starts distracting his wife with a life-sized doll that looks like him, only it has red hair. So wrapped up in her own stuff, she doesn't even notice.
  • Twilight asks Celestia about Spike's legal parentage for tax reasons and she vanishes in a bust of smoke, declaring she'snever going to give a straight answer on that one.
  • Chrysalis returns, and attempts to capture the 'weakest' of the group, Fluttershy.
  • Discord, who was with her at the time, easily defeats the Queen and her entire hive is locked in the ballroom for containment, since they lacked extra space in the dungeons.
  • Applejack decides, instead of exiling them or attempting to keep them locked up, to try and merge them with pony society.
  • She learns that A, there is no 'changeling government', none of them have names, Chrysalis has a terrible vocabulary, and this is the last remaining Changeling hive.
  • She also feels regret.

Thread 2 Edit

  • All of the changelings take the name Applejack with various numbers
  • They mostly cause havoc and destruction with little guidance and.
  • Chrysalis reveals she can't read pony, and when pointing out she's speaking it corrects Applejack and points out Applejack is, in fact, speaking Changeling. Also, it turns out her name means a lot in changeling languages.
  • Applejack briefly asks if the can just toss them into the sun. Celestia says no.
  • They're mostly left to their own devices, which drives Applejack mad.
  • Shining Armor points out that, hey, his wife's kidnapper and his own assaulter is currently running around unsupervised in the castle. He is coldly brushed off by Celestia.
  • Applejack tries to make Shining Armor let the changelings live in the barren wasteland out in the snow around his Empire. He... disagrees.
  • First appearance of Applejack 42, after he and nine other changelings face 100 guards and defeat 99 of them.
  • Deciding to cash in on this, they have her battle other monsters and such for sport. She does so... and eventually slips away. Whoops.
  • Declaring this her fault, they demand Chrysalis send someone off to find her. Which she does, and allows Applejackto recapture her. Turns out he was sick of being used for bloodsport and was more interested in defending his Hive. Applejack apologizes and all is well.
  • Shining Armor, desperate to become an Alicorn, engages a 'bet' with Celestia that if he can defeat 42 in hoof to hoof combat, she'll ascend him. Not serious and just wanting to watch him get hurt, she agrees.
  • 42 then proceeds to beat the stuffing out of him, with his months of inactivity and lack of training coming back to bite him, hard.
  • Looking for her one day, Applejack stumbles across said punchbug, and discovers a strange secret. 'He' is actually a 'she', and she had been hiding herself by disguising herself and using male pheromones. When she reveals there can only be one female in the hive, Applejack assures her they wouldn't let Chrysalis attack her.
  • ...Turns out they didn't need to, Chrysalis doesn't care.
  • First appearance of Applejack 2, who would later become a major character, occurs during a flashback to how 42 was found, where it turns out the one who found him was a drone picked by Chrysalis at random who couldn't decide on their number. 42 was located in Shining Armor's room, which 2 stumbled into by accident, where the prince had been whining to the soldier for a while while she gnawed on his helmet. She was ignoring him.... he knew.
  • After that, 2 accidentally says something to anger Chrysalis, and rushes back to hide with Shining Armor, who reveals he knew she was a she the whole time as well. When asked why she came back, she declared she liked him, and Shinning Armor, desperate for some attention, lets her stay. After this, she begins hanging around Shining Armor and following him.
  • Time passes, and she ends up spending more and more time with him, and at first it seems like the very adult looking changeling has an attraction to him. However, as time goes on, it becomes obvious her requests have a certain bent to them. A bent like playing boardgames, building blocks, drawing on papers and just walking around getting sweets.
  • The Gryphon Queen Gwendolyn(not named until thread 11) stages a covert invasion of the Crystal Empire to test the new kingdom. They are defeated off-screen by Two with a bunch of caramel, even she doesn't know how that worked. As a result, the Queen is now terrified of her.

Thread 3 Edit

  • First appearance of 18, an infiltration specialist sent out to 'seduce' Shining Armor. It doesn't work. Over, and over, it does not work.
  • Someone notices Applejack 2 is starting to... shrink?
  • First appearnce of Applejack 56, the plot-loving booty hungry changeling who attends Ponyville Elementary. On his first day of class, Diamond Tiara immediately demands the guards come in and arrest him. They do not. Worse, Silver Spoon doesn't seem to want him to go.
  • Taking the matter into her own hooves, she decides to get rid of him, permanently!... No, really, permanently. She starts chucking chemicals she's mixing in chemistry class at him, and gets more and more destructive when she notices he's practically invincible.
  • The Tournament Mini-Arc begins!

Thread 4 Edit

  • 18 begins helping with the paperwork due to Shiny showing her kindness, starting her journey into helping the Empire.
  • First appearance of Applejack 12, the ever-job seeking but constantly failing changeling.
  • First appearance of Applejack 29, a changeling who is out to seduce any royal he can find. Think a wimpy, Shakespearian Johnny Bravo who only goes after royals. He goes over to the Empire to assist with 'seducing' Shining Armor and Cadence, with painful results.
  • The Tournament Mini-arc comes to a close, with Spike and 42 forfeiting the match together rather than fight.

Thread 5 Edit

  • First appearance of Changeling 77(NOT Applejack 77), the only survivor of a failed infiltration mission that was sent underneath Canterlot, and discovered horrifying things down there.
  • After learning of his hives defeat and current status, he begins recounting his tale to 12 wherein he describes the horrors beneath Canterlot.

Thread 6 Edit

  • First appearance of Applejack 10, the would be reporter. She arrives hoping to get an interview with Shining Armor, but is told her camera is actually a box of cereal on a stick. He gives her a real one, and she runs off. She never did get that interview.
  • Turns out, 56 is the one who gave her the cereal box.
  • She tries to interview 77... it doesn't go well.

Thread 7 Edit

  • Cadence joins the DnD games despite knowing absolutely nothing about them, with expected results.
  • During one of said games, 42 gets the seduction spell with Shining thrust upon her, and spazzes out like never before.
  • 18 tries strip-dancing for fun, and makes 42 hold the bar. Then Cadence walks in and joins them, then Zecora walks in and joins them, then Celestia and Chrysalis notice, and after some heated words decide to have a dance off which eventually snowballs until they have a full blow, massive competition. But, sadly, cannot declare a winner, as Cadence and Zecora would vote for Celestia and 18 and 42 have to vote for Chrysalis!
  • Luckily, Shining was there the whole time... Celestia won due to technical details which everyone agrees on.
  • They all leave... he needs a minute.
  • 2 is officially adopted!
  • And shares a heartwarming scene with Applejack when she learns about the death of Applejack's parents.
  • A family heirloom is passed down to Shining Armor from his father, which has been sent down from generation after generation in their line, and every new recipient was encouraged to upgrade it and make it their own. In times long past, it was a big stick.... now it's a shotgun.
  • Sombra and Shining play Hyperspace Hyperwars, wherein Shining is easily and frequently defeated.
  • However, the specter is no match for the ultimate player... Two.
  • Awkward changeling asks for a job, and gets one working for a crystal polisher, Miss Glitz.
  • Sombra has a nightmare about his past, and rejects it.
  • A princess meeting goes off without a hitch!... Because Cadence, Celestia, Chrysalis and Luna were not present. Depressed, they all get drunk.
  • And then go bug Shining. Multi combo puke follows.
  • Movie night again! This one turns out badly when they rent a monster movie, which involves the a creature living inside of a changeling chitin. Everyone save Shining freaks out.
  • The rainbolts arrive and are named! A group of five changelings who act like sentai heroes, and even take on the colors of red, blue, green, yellow and INDIGO, not violet, because violet sucks.
  • Applejack discovers that 29 rejected a job offer from the Mayor of Ponyville to be her secretary, because he would much rather be lazy. She responds about how you would expect her to, and explains to him if he does not get down there and does a good job, she is going to send Spike with his gun and a body bag, and chucks him clear to Ponyville.
  • He turns out to be pretty damn good at the job, despite his endless complaining.
  • 29 complains to 12, who is... unsympathetic, to say the least
  • It's also revealed that 29 is 56's 'cousin', though what that means is never explained.
  • Spike visits the mayor again, and takes back all his previous threats, and apologizes.
  • Finally upping his game, Blueblood makes an assassination attempt on Applejack, only to be thwarted when Spike pushes her out of the way and takes the hit instead. This causes a lot of turmoil as Spike is badly wounded.
  • It also causes a lot of antics while ponies visit him in the hospital.
  • He frequently tries to get out and get back to work. Twilight, freaking out juuuuuust a bit, ends up making a walking tank for him called a Juggernaut. He decides that rest is probably a good idea.
  • Blueblood attempts to kidnap Applebloom, but is thwarted by Diamond Tiara and her rocket launcher... and for some reason she thought this was 56's doing. His innocence does not dissuade her from returning to trying to kill him.
  • Spike comes down and thanks her, and offers her a chance to join himself and some others for a special club for weapons enthusiasts.
  • Applejack flips off at her guards, but it's useless.
  • In a surprise attack, a mechanical Spike breaks through the shield and makes it into the Empire. Shining Armor and Sombra are near the landing sight, and the prince engages it in battle before destroying it. Sadly, he is badly wounded here.
  • Thankfully, he is okay, much better off than Spike, and is forced to recover in the hospital with his family surrounding him. Well, except for Chrysalis, who seemingly brushes off the incident, but everyone else can tell she is secretly raging.
  • In a surprising move, 18 goes to confront her and comfort her, but ends up being comforted by said Queen when she breaks down.
  • 2 tries to cheer him up by dressing as a nurse, and gives everyone heart attacks
  • Having that Juggernaut lying around, Twilight gives it to them for protection... it mostly ends up as a glorified SUV, and Cadence nearly kills everyone trying to drive that thing.
  • Spike can't take it anymore, and wants out of the bed! So, being a kind soul, Discord snaps his fingers and easily repairs all damage... and everyone's annoyed he didn't just do that in the first place.
  • 10 stumbles across a robot Blueblood double who had been trying to steal information, but fooled absolutely no one because if it's shoddy production, and was tossed in the trash. In it's malfunctioning to wipe it's own memory, it accidentally sets 10 as it's "owner" and follows her commands. Thus, the duo of 10 and BBB is born.
  • Rarity decides to stop living in decadence and try to be her old self again.

Thread 8 Edit

  • Flash, who was altered by Twilight with robot enhancements to try and bolster the guard, joins up with Blueblood
  • Blueblood robots arc officially begins!
  • Spike, 42, 77, Twilight and Diamond Tiara begin the assault on Blueblood's airship, but something is not what it seems with dear 42...
  • In the Crystal Empire, everyone is relaxing and Chrysalis is having fun, until she out of the blue goes stock still and declares the robots are coming, terrified.
  • Airships upon airships descends upon the Empire, and the invasion begins...

Thread 9 Edit

  • On the hunt for Blueblood, 77 and CS were captured by buffalo then promptly released.
  • Chrysalis and Shining are panicking while assembling the troops, and all of the Empire is losing their minds at the thought of invasion. Shining Armor tells her to stay back and if she finds any of 'them', lock them in the castle regardless of whether or not they fight her. With one last declaration he forgives her, he takes off.
  • Alone, Chrysalis just smiles, and vanishes...
  • Cadence was outside the shield went it went up, and now finds herself totally surrounded by robots. Rather than attack her, they play a pre-recorded message from Blueblood, who comically fails in trying to hide his identity. He explains he's merely doing this to return things to the way they were, and he has no intention of harming her, just that her Empire was 'flying a little too high' and 'shaming Auntie Celestia', so he must knock them down a few pegs. In addition, he must remove the unfortunate 'intruders', the changelings. He warns her this is not an extermination, but if they fight back there will be... collateral damage. She remains trapped in the sea of robots, unable to get to the shield.
  • Rainbow Dash and the other Wonderbolts prepare to mobilize to help the Empire, getting ready to take off.
  • Alone, Spitfire is confronted by a robot who offers her a chance back at her position as captain and a chance to regain what she lost. Though tempted, she turns him down and destroys it. Proud, she and Dash join the other Wonderbolts and take off for the Empire.
  • In a shocking twist, the one assembling the Crystal Guard is... 42!?
  • It turns out, she had wished to assist in taking out Blueblood to secure relations with the ponies and assist in overall protection, but first and foremost wished to defend her Queen. As a result, she mind-melded with another changeling 007, an Infiltrator with combat skills, and had him pretend to be her. With her memories, he could keep up the con, and assist them in taking the airship down.
  • While the Crystal Guard assemble and use their rockets to powerful effect, she just uses punches.
  • Shining Armor joins her, and the battle reaches a fever pitch as the two battle inside the robot horde.
  • Two is revealed to be with Sombra, locked away in some unknown location.
  • Outside in the robot horde, Cadence is doing her best to wade through the robots that still will not attack her to little avail, when some of them suddenly spring to life and seem to be shooting at her.
  • But instead, it turns out Chrysalis had disguised herself as a robot, but they could detect she was secretly organic. She destroys the robots, and is left alone with Chrysalis.
  • With nobody around, Cadence out in a dangerous area she would have been spotted heading to alone, and no trace of Chrysalis herself there, the Queen declares this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get what she wants, and Cadence, horrified, begs her not to attack, to no avail.
  • There is a flash of green... then silence.
  • The battle is going poorly for 42 and Shining, who while are able to destroy the robots in droves soon run out of stamina and are forced back behind the shield.
  • Chrysalis suddenly arrives, declaring she has found the answers to all these problems, but it will require both Shining and 42 for it to work.
  • Though suspicious, they realize they have no choice and follow her to the Vault, where she says she has set up a way to destroy the robots, but it will risk 42's life.
  • But the moment Shining steps inside, Two rushes up to hug him, and Sombra declares it's a trap! Chrysalis smashes 42's head into the ground, declaring that "Loyalty Vs Love... rarely goes well for the former." And chucks her inside, locking all four away. With nothing to stop her, she makes her way off, the wounded Forty Two calling her a damn fool... who will bring the whole Empire to the ground.
  • Terrified, Shining Armor begins drilling his way out. It is slow, and he does not think he will make it in time.
  • 18 attacks the two guards defending the doors to the Crystal Heart, demanding she be let in to use it's power to save her Empire. They reveal they cannot, only the royal family can access the DNA scanner to find entry. Chrysalis arrives, and 18 breaks down, declaring she had come to love this place, this magical city, and that she would rather die than see it destroyed. Annoyed, Chrysalis knocks her out.
  • The guard points out she still can't enter into the room, and she just smiles.
  • "Welcome, Princess Cadenza Mi Amore"
  • While he's reeling in shock, wondering how she got the Princess's DNA, she just tells him to put 18 on his back... and run.
  • She tells the guard to pick up 18... and run.
  • Down below the castle, all of the citizens are gathered around, terrified of being invaded again, only clinging to the hope of survival thanks to the fact the Crystal Heart shines brightly.
  • Despair overtakes them when and explosion goes off on the top of the castle, that light goes out, the shield is gone, and the Heart is tossed to the ground, a crack along it's side.
  • At the top, in the shattered wreckage of the castle spire, an eruption of emerald fire sweeps up into the sky, and a booming voice declares "I. AM. YOUR. GOD. NOW."
  • The wonderbolts, who have just arrived, can only watch in horror as Chrysalis becomes an inferno of power, beyond anything they had ever seen before. The love in the heart provided her the boost she needed, and she was now on a level all on her own.
  • Single-handedly, Chrysalis wipes out the attacking robots, using massive beams of power to destroy the entire army and tossing the airships into each other like toys, with no effort at all on her part as the shockwaves rattle the entire Empire.
  • She leaves one last airship remaining, sensing life within it and thinking it Blueblood. She phases from reality, not described as teleporting, and is suddenly inside that last airship, where she indeed discovers someone who looks like Blueblood. She prepares to kill him, and end this.
  • Suddenly, Shining Armor shows up on the scene, and begins interrogating her when he notices her mind is slipping and she is becoming deranged with power. When she mockingly says she did all this for him, he declares she only did it for her own power, which she cracklingly admits is true, she only did this so she could become a god. Still, he should be happy, because she's going to end this.
  • With one last desperate plea, he asks her to spare his life.
  • After a moment of thought... she agrees. Letting him live.
  • It turns out he's a body double, just paid to look like Blueblood. Nonetheless, Shining declares he will be tried for his part in the invasion.
  • But he is given no time to take him into custody. Chrysalis's burning form suddenly begins to waver, and her skin begins to grow cold and grey. The color leaves her, and she realizes she had burnt out on an overdose of too much love, and could not handle the power, and it's all slipping away.
  • As she lay dying in his arms, Shining Armor begs her to drain him. But she says she can't, the only way to gain it now would be if he gave her love, the love he feels for Cadence. Admitting that she knows he couldn't do that, she realizes the last few months had been the happiest time of her life, and she was happy she got to spend it with him as the life leaves her.
  • Shining Armor desperately tries to rouse her to no avail. Seeing no other option, he closes his eyes, braces himself, and then blames Celestia for this part.
  • Then he kisses her, right on the lips.
  • Shortly later, he's seen walking back through the Empire, Chrysalis on his back, very much alive, even if she was barely so, and laughing all the way.
  • 18, 42, Sombra and 2 rush up, 2 declaring she knew Chrysalis wans't a bad guy and was just saving them. 18 is mad Chrysalis punched her, but 42 holds her back.
  • Then another arrival comes along. It's Cadence! Still also very much alive, albeit with a cut on her neck. Turns out, Chrysalis merely cut her and used her DNA shifting ability from Larvesta to mimic Cadence's blood, she just needed a sample to pull it off, then took Cadence to a safe place.
  • When Cadence, shocked, asks why Chrysalis didn't just kill her, the Queen just laughs and says she didn't feel like it, nobody buys that.
  • But there's still one thing left. The heart is still barren, and after watching it be drained before their very eyes, the Crystal Empire cannot bring themselves to feel love again. For what good is it, if it can be taken away in just an instant? The adults look on in despair, not knowing how to fix this.
  • But someone has an idea! Little Two hops down, going over to the heart. When Shining Armor tells her it would take so many to feel love, everyone from the Empire, Two just smiles.
  • She points out that she has love from everyone in the Empire, inside of her, because of changeling. With that, she points out... she just has to give it back.
  • She pours the love the Empire had given her back into the heart, and right before their eyes it is returned to it's natural splendor! Love fills their hearts once more as they realize that despite how all may try to drain it from them, in fact...
  • Love remained... and it will never die.
  • They all join together, every one, and look on, knowing that the Empire is safe.
  • ...And then the robots begin their invasion of Ponyvile and Cantrelot.
  • Shoot.
  • Canterlot relies on the power of it's princesses and magic users to fight back, while Ponyville uses comedy slapstick.
  • The A-team continues their infiltration, fighting through level after level and fighting a variety of battles as the all split up.
  • Chrysalis is still recovering from her draining of the Crystal Heart, and is being watched over by Shining Armor and Cadence
  • Shining Armor and Cadence have a moment where they muse about his mortality.
  • Chrysalis's dreams are invaded by Luna, who poses as Applejack and confronts her and tortures her for information, wherein she admits that she drained the Heart not to save the Empire, but for it's power. She also reveals she knows this is a dream when Shining Armor does not come to save her, but does not tell anyone what transpired after she awoke
  • 77 and Cheese save the buffalo and defeat the mechanical beast, before heading off to help on the airship
  • The robots attack ponyville, and are comically defeated by various citizens including Big Mac, Mayor Mare, 29, Vinyl, Octavia and 10/BBB. The Cutie Mark Crusaders are totally useless.
  • Spike faces off with Flash, but is defeated after a brawl, but escapes his cell thanks to Rarity's help.
  • Flash engages Diamond Tiara in a brawl, with the filly coming out on top.
  • Spike, after wrecking his way to the top, faces off against Flim and Flam with their new contraption, which he easily destroys. Even though they immediately surrender, he shoots them. It turns out they survived it.
  • Finally at the top, he confronts Blueblood who attempts to shoot him with a multiple of weapons, only to be disabled when Spike shoots his horn off. After a chilling game of russian roulette, Spike admits he doesn't want to kill anyone anymore, just in time for everyone to show up thanks to Discord and help... mere seconds before Diamond Tiara declares she's set charges, and the place is going to blow.
  • And blow it does. With Blueblood and the still very much alive Flim and Flam taken into custody, it looks like all is well.
  • Only... Flash too survived, and delivers the plans for the robots to none other than Fawntaine.
  • In the wake of the destruction, Twilight talks with Chrysalis, and tells her that her burnout of the power has permanently crippled her ability to use that much love. If she tries it again, she'll die.
  • But later, to Celestia alone, she reveals that the opposite is true. Her survival has made her more capable of containing that power, and now it's entirely possible she won't suffer a burnout. Still unsure of her loyalty or caring, they both decide to keep quiet on the matter.
  • DT crawls home at three in the morning exhausted to a still awake Filthy Rich who had been waiting patiently for her. Still a bit in denial, since he thinks she was at a 'club' with her friends.
  • With that out of the way, shenanigans re-ensue... starting with Cadence and Chrysalis singing This Day Aria in perfect sync without meaning to, and declaring the other a witch before running off.
  • And more Rarity Vs Applejack for Spike wherein they completely ignore him halfway and go do their own thing.
  • And it's revealed Celestia's mother has been cockblocking her for her whole life, and won't let her have sex until she's married. Also, when she swears at her she tosses soap bars into her mouth from heaven.
  • Flim and Flam, totally alive, now have to suffer as Cheese throws them a birthday bash that lasts for days.

  • Twilight, investigating strange activity from her brother, travels up into the snowy mountains and discovers, of all things, Queen Chitania! After digging her way deep, deep, deep into the ice, a mistake on her part awakens the long thought dead Queen, and inadvertently released her.
  • Twilight tries to stop the Queen, but is buried by an avalanche caused by the Changeling when she grows to her Titanic size. It is only her magic that keeps her from being killed, but she is unable to stop the Queen as she leave.
  • Chitania's mind still living in the days long past, she declared her need for revenge, and rampaged across the land.
  • Chitania arc officially begins!

Thread 16 Edit

  • Chitania continues her rampage, destroying a gryphon village in the process (six gryphons died in this action, but this was not revealed till much later) and several dozen other places along the way.
  • She nearly hits Ponyville, but is distracted by 29, Mayor Mare and Zecora. This action points her towards Canterlot.
  • Pommel and 32 attempt to stop her with a poisonous mushroom, but this fails and Pommel is swallowed.
  • Several attempt to stop her from reaching Canterlot, such as 77 and the Rainbolts using experimental robots(Which instantly fall apart), but they all fail.
  • In a desperate attempt to keep her citizens safe, Celestia begins long-range teleporting them to safety, an act that strains her and drains nearly all of her magic.
  • Unsure of her motives or abilities, Applejack locks up all of the changelings in the ballroom out of fear they could be controlled, or that this is some plot on Chrysalis's end.
  • Spike, 42 and Diamond Tiara engage her in the Highwind. While initially they seem to be making progress, she soon turns it around and destroys the machine.
  • On the ground, Spike detonates a warehouse filled with Blueblood's munitions in an attempt to kill her. This, unfortunately, messes up Luna's own sneak attack of a divebomb, and leaves the lunar princess vulnerable to be punted through buildings, and have a house dropped on her.
  • Shining Armor manages to fix the portal, and he, Chrysalis and Cadence all walk through, discovering the havoc. Chrysalis, enraged, goes off to stop her, while Cadence and Shining Armor split up to find 2 and get her to safety.
  • Sensing the portal is working again, Two leaves her kindergarten to reach it.
  • Cadence meets and attempts to stop Chitania first, but ultimately only helps the beast recover before being kicked away.
  • Chitania reaches the ballroom, and nearly kills one of the changelings(13) while trying to extract information
  • Chrysalis arrives and takes them both underground, to the area she placed Cadence back at the wedding.
  • The one sided battle begins, heavily in Chrysalis's favor as she uses sneak attacks and tricks.
  • Here, while attempting to convince the Titan to join her side, Chrysalis learns Chitania is infertile.
  • Becoming unfocused, Chitania nearly has her mind taken over, only managing to stop it from a desperate attack, which is later revealed to be her flooding Chrysalis's mind with her darkest memory, the day her hive died.
  • Dazed, Chrysalis can't react in time before Chitania drops the whole cave on her head.
  • Teleporting back to the surface, she takes Celestia off guard while pretending to be a guard, and suckerpunches her out her balcony.
  • Chitania expects her to get right back up and kick some ass, and is angered when she does not, thinking she had been lied to all this time about the powers of the great 'sun raiser'. In that anger, she prepares to end Celestia.
  • Only to be stopped at the last moment by a giant bubble.
  • In a bit of cleverness, Shiny picks up every explosive he can find in a massive ball, and drops it on her. The explosives do nothing to her.
  • But they do a lot more to her air supply. Soon, she is suffocating, and what little energy she had left is sapped.
  • Instead of finishing her, SA offers her a chance at redemption.
  • In disgust, she spits it back, and reaches out for a body to regain her strength. To everyone's horror, the one she grabs... Is Two.
  • Shining responds rationally. By hitting her with his Juggernaut, and shoving her clear out of Canterlot and through the skies.
  • Right when he is over a volcano, he grabs Two and detonates the machine leaving it to explode in her face and tumbling down into the cone, Two right along with him. When he lands, he finds her unconscious and tries to rouse her back into consciousness, but can't. He hoped that Chitania would fall into the lava.
  • She didn't.
  • The final battle begins, with Chitania Vs Shining Armor. She has size and strength, but Shining is able to turn the environment to his advantage, pummeling her with shields warped into spears filled with lava. This does not stop her, but with some quick timing he is able to push her right into a massive plume of lava. Seemingly defeated, she is covered completely, and he prepares to leave.
  • "Yeah... not dead."
  • She emerges, reduced down to her 'normal' size, and the real final bout begins.
  • Over the fight, his own rage bubbled to the surface, allowing him to hold his own against her. At the end, when he seems defeated,a simple mistake on her part she was soon dangling over certain doom, only his hooves there to hold her up.
  • Having had quite enough of her hurting his family, he mocked her, and dropped her.
  • And then caught her when he thought Two had awoken, and he realized what he was doing, and was horrified at himself.
  • She gets pulled back up, and neither wishes to continue the fight... and then the volcano started to erupt.
  • They just barely make it out in time.
  • Shining admits he's not ready to forgive her and help her yet.
  • She says she doesn't care, she's found a new goal. She's discovered the supposed 'gods' she fought were all fakes. Thus, if she can take them... maybe she can take the real ones. She runs off, alone.
  • Tired, Shining begins a long trek back home.
  • Two wakes up, and they have a heart to heart where he explains that doing the right thing, helping her, is more important, and they bond.

Thread 17 Edit

  • All hell is about to break loose.
  • Chrysalis emerges from the ground, and they're about to fight.
  • Shining Armor arrives just in time and breaks it up. Everyone, from him to Celestia to Applejack to Chrysalis admit fault in what happened.
  • And then Shining Armor collapses because a giant bug monster beat him until he saw through time, and that hurts.
  • When he wakes up, it is revealed that Chitania's attack showed Chrysalis one of the Titan's memories. Specifically, the memory she remembers most.
  • The memory of when her hive died.
  • Chitty's backstory is revealed.
  • She throws up Pommel, and Pommel's Adventures begin.

  • Fluttershy's chaos magic goes out of control, and consumes all of Partyland, bringing rides to life, spawning monsters, things like that
  • Celestia, searching for answers, is nearly grabbed by the chaos, but pushed out of the way at the last moment by 007, who is grabbed by the chaos instead and taken off who knows where, not seen for the rest of the thread
  • Opposite of this, Chrysalis is nearly grabbed and taken off, but through her own cunning escapes, and finds that Jetset nearly managed to escape with her hair and left her for dead. She takes the hair back, and sends him on his way.
  • After scrambling for a bit, the rest of the Main Six and Spike all come together and begin searching for Fluttershy.
  • While fleeing, Shining Armor, Cadence, 2, Poindexter and Mane-Iac run into a disguised Chitania, who Cadence insists comes along with them to keep safe. 18 and 42 meet up with them shortly after.
  • Several toys of Chiatnia's toyline, called Chitania's Crushers, come to life, and nearly fight the main six, but are distracted by the Rainbolts. Twilight and company use the distraction to escape, and the rainbolts are soundly defeated afterwards.
  • The Crushers then meet up with Shining Armor and crew, and engage them in a fight after spotting Mane-Iac with them, and thinking them villains. With some backup from 55, they manage to calm them down long enough to clear it all up.
  • And then a giant robot brusts from the ground. Mr Popcorn, infused with the chaos magic, came alive and combined the various rides together in order to form a giant mech.
  • The Crushers grow to full size and try to fight, but are easily defeated.
  • Shining Armor and Two are nearly crushed by the robots giant hammer, but in order to save her own life Chitania was forced to reveal herself, and inadvertently saved them as well. Angered, she grows to her Titanic size and begins to fight the robot, having much better results than her fakes.
  • Diamond Tiara, not to be shown up, grabs 77 and 42, and they all infiltrate the robot. After a battle in the core of it, and having a hole out punched by Chitania, she plants explosives and destroys the robot.
  • Unfortunately, this causes Partyland's thrusters to go haywire, rocketing them up clear into the stratosphere before beginning to slowly fall back down.
  • Now in a freefall, the chaos effects the shield meant to keep ponies from falling off the side, and turns it on, ensuring none can escape. Except Chitania, who easily punches through it.
  • The Crushers, inspired by Poindexter, break out as well, and attempt to hold up the falling island, failing rapidly as their Chaos magic leaves them.
  • Chitania, while fleeing, gets a magical call from Arana. Remembering Sciderella's fond love of the changeling, she eventually turns around, and unknown to any grabs hold and keeps the flying island afloat as the Crushers lose their magic and fall to earth, toys once again.
  • Off of Partyland, Chrysalis attempts to convince Discord to stop, infiltrating his mind while disguised as Fluttershy. After it fails, Celestia reveals it was her plan, and she gave the magic needed to pull it off. Still, while in his mind Chrysalis learns the real source of the chaos, and before any can stop her she sets off to 'deal' with it.
  • Finally, the other five locate Fluttershy, with Spike staying outside to fend off the monsters. There, they learn the truth, that she did not counter Discord's magic, but absorbed it. Now, it's out of control, and she cannot stop it.
  • Behind her, Chrysalis appears, and delves into her mind before the others can stop her, freezing them in time.
  • Chrysalis finds the leftover bits from the clones driving Fluttershy mad, and deletes them. Then she moves on to the real thing, and attempts to control her.
  • Fluttershy attempts to fight her off to no avail, and in desperation calls her friends.
  • The fight reveals Chrysalis merely wanted to 'dull' her mind so that they would not have to seal her up, attempting to help in her own twisted way.
  • The others, desperate, convince Fluttershy she can control this, with their help. Moved by their willingness to risk themselves, she agrees to try to fix it.
  • With help from Chrysalis to keep her from going out of control, Partyland is repaired, back to as good as it had been before this started, with the only negative effect being Chrysalis receiving a terrible backlash and being knocked out.
  • Together, they declare they will be there for her, and Partyland ends.

  • Cordy gets mad because Applejack is fighting it, speeds up 88 getting there.

  • High Roller and his accomplice, Blues Noteworthy are after Screwloose. Roller undergoes a process to change his body and mane color in order to mimic a generic guard. The two set out just as the Cordies begin to overtake Ponyville.
  • 18 informs the Changelings what they're supposed to do, which is stay in the ballroom, and then leaves. In desperation, they look to Actarius, who has no idea what the fuck to do.
  • In desperation, Applejack sends Arana off to get Twilight. To her dismay, the door to the lab is gone, unknown to her via Chrysalis. Through this, Chrysalis learns AJ is infected, but does not tell Twilight.
  • Shining Armor gives a rousing speech to inspire the troops. They all get pumped.

  • She collides with 88, and accidentally reveals where the changelings are. After a brief talk, 88 deduces a better way to spread, and also directs Spikezilla to go after them. AJ runs off ahead to warn them.
  • In an effort to stop Spikezilla, Fluttershy uses her chaos powers. During this, she realizes it can absorb her magic, and that Discord didn't abandon her. Then she gets backhanded and infected, and proceeds to chase after Rarity and crew.
  • Arana finds the newspaper when Chitty saved Partyland, and rushes off to tell Applejack something.
  • AJ goes to ballroom, tells them to leave. They say no, says Chrysalis told them to stay put. She gets mad and calls Chrysalis an idiot and says their Queen didn't plan for shit. They're about to leave but don't when JJ says not to.
  • Spikezilla shows up and tries to grab them, but AJ magic shoves them out the back. Sadly it turns out, there was a plan in place, and a super-huge teleport goes off but nobody is in it. Changelings are about to become crispy flavored with extra spice.

  • AJ, while depressed at her failure, is confronted by Arana, who tells her she's the one who called Chitania back to PL.

  • Chitty offers to protect the gryphons, if they give her full amnesty and a pardon. Zephyrious wants to accept, but Gwen backhands him and tells Chitania to go fuck herself, essentially.
  • Chitty shrugs and leaves, and the gryphons now have to fight off their entire populace alone.

  • Luna engages Spikezilla and seems to knock him out, but it turns out even someone of his size can instantly recover, and she gets infected by Spikezilla. Afterwards, while they are distracted with grief, he backhands Shiny and Celly into a tower.
  • After a heart to heart where they both decide to stay and fight and destroy their teleport stones, 88 shows up.
  • Long story short, there's a giant mushroom over Canterlot now, and Shiny and Celestia got caught up in its stalk.
  • Throughout all of this, Twilight and Chrysalis are trying to find a cure, with Chrysalis sure all of her plans to save only those she cares about is going off without a hitch.
  • She finds out not a one of them have, has a fit.
  • Then she watches Shiny get consumed by one of the musrooms roots, and she doesn't just lose her cookies. She loses those cookies, goes to the store to buy more and loses them, bakes two dozen more and loses them, sets out on an epic journey to the land of cookies just to lose the whole damn continent, and then she turns reality into a cookie and promptly loses time and space.
  • ...She freaks out, to put it shortly.
  • AJ and Arana are about to be turned by Spikezilla, but Chitania shows up just in time!
  • Talk reveals she gets a full pardon if she can stop Spike without killing him. She easily beats him down without any effort, and prepares to walk off, much to AJ's horror.
  • But as it turns out, he's fine. Worse, the Cordy decides it needs more information, and finds out about fighting from everyone else.
  • Spike now knows kung fu.
  • ... and he beats the black right off of Chitania
  • After the beatdown of her life, she tries to attack him from the air. He grows wings and beats her down to earth.
  • Annoyed she won't stay down, the Cordy decides to take the fight out of her by making her relive her worst memory, just like 88. AJ and Arana try to stop him, and get to watch.
  • Chitty's backstory when her daughter 'died' is revealed... it's sad. So very, very sad...
  • But apparently she figured out something about this event later, because Chitty gets very, very, very mad.
  • How mad?
  • She breaths fire to suffocate Spike.
  • It works, and the Cordy feels it all over, just like when PD shot off their shoulder. It's forced to brick Spike just to keep from dying.
  • Turns out, though, breathing fire is bad. As in, Chitania's larynx is now charred and burned bad, and she is dying.
  • Aj tells her off for a bit, then tells her if she wants to be saved she's going to have to help stop this thing.
  • Needless to say, Chitania agrees.
  • ...And thus, AJ rode atop Chitania as they both charge headlong at the base of the giant mushroom, zero fucks given.

  • She tells Chrysalis she could, at last, rule Equestria, as since not even Celestia would survive, meaning Chrysalis would be the most powerful being on the planet, and most of her hive would survive. But she couldn't save Shining Armor, or any infected changelings.

  • SA and Celestia, still inside, decide there's only one way to stop it. Fool it with another power source, themselves.

  • She has no idea who 88 is, and wanders off
  • 18 and Cadence go looking for Shiny.
  • Celestia digs her way out too, dragging Shiny with her.
  • He's a shriveled prune, and not breathing.
  • She tries kissing him back to life, it doesn't work. So does Cadence and 18, this also does not work.

Thread 63 Edit

  • BALLROOM BLITZ EDITION!
  • Chrysalis, still in her dress, meets up with Celestia and we find out where she went! DUN DUN DUUUNNN... It was to visit 55 and make sure he was okay. But that's not all! She has a proposal for Celestia!... Not that kind. Celestia says no, but she can ask Applejack. Chrysalis... is less than thrilled at the idea.
  • Breakfast chronicles! With special guest star, Spitfire!... She's confused.
  • DOUBLE breakfast chronicles! This time with the Catnerlot Crew!
  • Spitfire is having just a biiiiiittt of trouble adjusting to training the crystal Pegasi, mostly because they all super-suck at this.
  • SUNSET SHIMMER HAS LANDED! After sneaking her way into Canterlot, she confronts Celestia head to head, and reveals she is seeking redemption and wants to be a student again! Feeling her chance has passed, Celestia instead assigns her to be Applejack's student to better teach her the joy of being a princess! And also so she doesn't have to deal with it.
  • Sunset... is not sure what happened to Canterlot, but she does not like it, no sir. Such as when she goes into the ballroom to find something she hid away ages ago and instead discovers it's full of ALIENS! She is later delivered bound and gagged to Applejack by some very pissed off and singed changelings. This is only the first of many, many gags with her.
  • 12 and Screwloose continue heading off to ???
  • Vekir and 32 talk
  • Coltsly solutions are going to try to give Celestia an offer they can't refuse.

  • Dash, Spitfire and Soarin' find out about Spitfire, they're pretty damn shocked.
  • 41 once punched a baby in the face...
  • AJ has a talk with Sunset about vices.
  • Chitania forgot she can fly.
  • 29 finds 32's cell, and sadly laments his lost friend, thinking him burned to death. Thankfully, a ghostkid clears that up, and they rush off to go see him. The spot him still in the restaurant with Pommel, and 29 comes up with a plan! So he isn't seen tailing him, he disguises himself as Jugglejack, who is also in the restaurant with Actarius, with the intention of following 32 when he finishes. This way, he has an alibi, and since JJ will be seen in two places they won't be able to pin anything on him. Yes, everyone calls this plan as dumb and needlessly complicated as it is. Nonetheless, they go with it.
  • Turns out, 7 followed them the whole way. When 29 goes into the bathroom, 7 takes this as his chance and prepares to end him. Only to find out someone beat him to it. The suited pony from several threads ago, thinking 29 is Jugglejack in a stunning lack of racism and being able to tell them apart, tries to abduct him.
  • 7 reveals himself and they square off. Jetset pops out of nowhere, having spotted 7 while getting Celestia a bear claw, and reveals he knows the suited pony, who's name is Slate, and that Slate trained him back when he started by left for... "a more 'rewarding' profession". Sensing trouble is about to start, he decides HE needs to take 29 into his custody. One insult too far, and Jetset goes at Slate and tries to attack him from behind, but then Slate does the same. Long story short they keep appearing behind the other, and are soon gone.
  • Before 7 can breath a sigh of relief, a whole mob of suited ponies break into the bathroom. AND THE MARE IN THE BACK SAID EVERYONE ATTACK AND IT TURNED INTO A BALLROOM BLITZ! The brawl spills out into the restaurant, and when no guards show up (causing Pommel to lose his mind with anger that nobody is coming to help) several patrons tell their robots to open (TASER, notbullet)fire... which mostly just hits 7's meatshields and random patrons. Yes, one of them does point a gun at Zecora.
  • Actarius and Pommel work together to get everyone out while Zecora makes a smokebomb. Having enough, Seven fries the lot, breaking all the machines. Just before he can breath a sigh of relief, Jetset and Slate come back... and Jet promptly gets himself tangled in Seven. After a tense confrontation, a three-way beam-war ensues... which solves absolutely nothing as none of them are hit. So they start punching each other. In a shocking twist, in the midst of one-upping the other 7 and Jet work together in perfect harmony and take out Slate... after Jetset totally kill-steals. But while they're arguing, Slate reveals he is still standing, and prepares to leave.
  • CHRYSALIS OUT OF NOWHERE! And the shocking reveal to Slates Employer is... THE EQUESTRIAN CHARITY OVERSIGHT ORGINIZATION! ...So, yeah, he's a charity auditor who deals with cases of fraud, which JJ and Actarius committed when they raised funds without telling anyone it was going to changelings, who takes his job waaayyyyyy too seriously. All the same, it looks like JJ and Acty are off to prison.
  • NOPE! Turns out, Chrysalis has been slipping in addendum in laws for months, and one of them covers this. Slate apologizes, Seven lies and gets told he did a good job, Jetset leaves and all is well! ...Except that Seven doesn't get a pat on the head. And Chrysalis chews out JJ. And AJ now knows that stuff has been getting past her. So, not so well.
  • AJ calls Chrysalis to her office, and spends a bit yelling at her before Chrysalis stops her and instead we find out what that offer was she gave Celestia. She wants to give Applejack a new guard... made up of Changelings. Taking into consideration it would solve a lot of problems regarding them, but would also require a lot of trust put in Chrysalis, she's totally unsure what she should do and how she's supposed to figure this out by herself.
  • Oh, wait, she doesn't have to, she's got friends now. "Think it's time for another princess meeting..."

Thread 64 Edit

  • THE GREAT DEBATE EDITION!
  • Spitfire continues to utterly fail to whip the Crystal Air Force into shape
  • DT resumes training the Canterlot Guard!... mostly with musicals.
  • Cadence has all she can take and she can't take no more! She tears off, flies her flat rear to Canterlot and breaks down with Celestia where she reveals that she knows NOTHING about how to run a country, sign bills into law or anything! Feeling completely useless, she begs Celestia to help her.
  • Which Celestia agrees to... That was easy.
  • Chrysalis wrecks Shiny's papers to try to make herself feel better, it doesn't work. She and him have a heart to heart talk where she laments how much better it would be if she could just bring her Hive to the Empire, and he agrees, but there's just no room. They have a nice moment together.
  • DT made a recruitment commercial. According to Steam Gauge and Quicksilver's conversation, they got an influx of new recruits because of it. Plus Coco was pressed into enlisting.
  • They managed to have success in their training by facing stuffed animals again and successfully recovering the cakes.

  • Sunset wants to learn about Changeling Queens, and when Twilight refuses to share any of her research she heads off to go get it herself from the source, AKA Chitania.
  • It fails spectacularly, but Chitania gets to throw some barbs in the meanwhile. Also, Chitania isn't just reading about gods and the means to reach them, as it turns out. She's been slipping in something... else.
  • Vekir finds her bodyguard at last, Handydog!
  • Haymaker, Blueblood, PJ and Arana hang out
  • Jetset meets with his old 'professionalism' teacher, Harshwhinny, and mentions he met Slate again. All she cares about is that he 'won' due to the fact he got the last hit.
  • Ms Coltsly makes her move, and offers her own replacement for the guard, Pennydrop's robots.
  • With the stage set, the great debate begins! All the mane six, princesses, Spike and Sunset get together and debate the merits of either the changelings or the robots, since none of them want to give the current guard another shot.
  • While initially having a little support, what little the changelings had turns on them when AJ reveals Chrysalis still wants to be in command of them.
  • Twilight pleads with them desperately to give Chrysalis a chance, but after a lengthy speech Applejack just simply declares she doesn't trust her, and asks Twilight, as her FRIEND, to let it go. Backed into a corner by that, Twilight relents, and it looks like the robots are going to be the new guard.
  • But all is not lost! Pommel bursts in at the last moment, and finds out he was elected captain of the guard in a sham election. Still, he decides it's a now or never thing, and that it's up to him to save the guard!
  • With an impassioned speech that points out the flaws of having an uncaring, unfeeling guard overlooking them, he convinces the princesses to give the guard one last shot.
  • Applejack, always one who appreciates hard work and natural order, offers him one month to get the guard recruited back to not-terrible levels, and if he can't manage it they're going with the robots.
  • Now, Pommel has to fill the ranks of the guards, or its all over for them.
  • Meeting adjourned.
  • Chrysalis learns her plan fails, and while she is in despair that her last real chance to make headway in Canterlot has slipped away, she has a meeting with Chitania where the other queen details exactly why this is all going to fail for her, her people will be wiped out, and she'll be all alone, and she can't stop it. And it'll all happen the moment Shining Armor dies.
  • ...Only, turns out, Chitania was never really there at all.
  • Chrysalis might be a bit unhinged at the moment.
  • In the aftermath, Sunset goes to see Twilight to cheer her up, and tell her she understands the importance of second chances, obviously. This works and they decide to start working together.

  • 77 and 32 find 88, and with them Rekulk and Sebjek, who talk with their long missed 'zhetri thul'. Rekulk can be oddly cute.
  • DT's shipments of robots arrived and she wants to give them away to the guards. She asked Spike if he can get them approved for storage with the Guards. Spike, remembering his earlier conversation with Silver Spoon, agrees to get them approved only if DT would start meeting with Twilight.
  • She also mentions that new recruits are arriving for training thanks to the recruitment ad campaign.
  • Chrysalis goes to check on the hive and notices 12 is missing, goes off to confront Applejack about that.
  • Applejack enters her office and finds, weirdly enough, 29 in there being harassed by Winona. After a bit of talking, she gleams that he's obviously fearful for his life, not knowing that 7 is after him.
  • He leaves and AJ decides to have Jetset tail him in order to make sure Chrysalis isn't trying to kill him for something stupid, unaware that Chrysalis doesn't even know there's a problem.
  • MAIN EVENT BEGINS!
  • Chrysalis confronts Applejack about 12, and learns AJ has been convincing 12 to ignore her orders and has been granting him stuff Chrysalis didn't approve of.
  • A bit of banter happens, then AJ decides to lay down the law and say she's not going to tolerate Chrysalis threatening the lives of one of her subjects.
  • Chrysalis thinks she's talking about 41, Aj is in fact talking about 29, neither know this.
  • Offended that AJ thinks she can control her hive or herself, she tells the alicorn she is powerless against her, and she was going to show her what a TRUE Queen was! In a flash of fire, she's gone. Panicking, AJ takes off in panic.
  • She tries to go get Twilight, but unfortunately for her Twilight is visiting her brother in the Empire.
  • And Celestia is off with Rarity and Cadence in the Empire's library
  • And Fluttershy is gone off to a tea party with some chaos creatures
  • ...Whoops.
  • On a warpath, Chrysalis finds 41 with Suckerpunch and Six other guards, fully intending to outright kill her right there. She freezes Suckerpunch to prevent him from intervening, but does not need to with the other terrified guard. The inaction by both the Guard and AJ disappoints her.
  • Enraged, she prepares to take off 41's head. Only to be struck at the last moment by the realization that 41 only disobeyed her for Sucker Punch, who she only likes because they fought. Which they did only because of... Applejack.
  • She starts mentally going over every other one who disobeyed her and notices they all did so because of something Applejack did.
  • She's floored, thinking that she'd been played for a fool by Applejack to subvert her authority, and that she hadplanned to use her rage against 41 to further this goal by offering any frightened Changelings asylum in the wake of her death.
  • Deciding she needs to outplay the player, she puts on a disguise that makes her look bored, and says "Well that didn't work!" before vanishing in a wash of fire and appearing in a room adjacent to the ballroom with 41 in tow.
  • She wipes 41's mind of the last month, and pretends that all of this, the disobedience and denial of orders, was part of her plan to gauge what it would take for the guard to accept them in the wake of her attempt to take it over.
  • All of the changelings overhear this, obviously. Chrysalis planned for this.
  • 41 is safe, and everything looks fine!
  • ...And then an explosion goes off.
  • ELSEWHERE! 7 is tracking 29 and is about to make his move, only to be stopped by Jetset!
  • They banter and 7 reveals this isn't a sanctioned assassination, just an expected thing, and then they battle.
  • Jetset seems to get the upper hand, thinking 7 still drained from the earlier battle after having seen his Queen did not refill his power, mocks 7 and prepares to stab him in the eye.
  • But 7 had drained every single hidden love-harness his Queen had stocked in the year since they arrived and is now quite charged. He takes Jetset down and starts mocking him right back.
  • Then Jetset points out his goal wasn't to beat 7, and that 29 is long, long, long gone. In a rage, 7 threatens him, but can't bring himself to actually kill Jetset.
  • Not that Applejack, who stumbled across the two due to their battle, knew that. She pours all of her magic into her hoof, unable to control the unstable power, and punches him clear out into the street. Overestimating his durability and thinking she didn't hit him hard enough, not knowing 7 is quite unconscious and likely has a serious concussion, she prepares to hit him again. She realizes her mistake a second too late, about to smash 7 into smithereens.
  • Only to be blocked at the last second... by Chrysalis! The Queen takes all that unstable power right to her shoulder as she covers him, and that damage is quite severe. Not severe enough to stop her from looking like she's about to tear this place apart, but she is visibly bleeding.
  • Just when it looks like a fight is going to break out, the Guard show up!... so yeah, that does nothing.
  • But then a whole bunch of robots, some from citizens and most from Coltsly, join the fray! This also does nothing.
  • THEN the Wonderbolts show up!... All four of them! So, yeah, nothing.
  • But then LUNA shows up! And this is something!
  • But then the whole HIVE shows up, so that something is not something enough.
  • Now, it looks like another full battle is about to break out, and AJ completely instinctively tells Chrysalis to back the fuck off. She instantly realizes this was a very dumb idea.
  • But instead of further escalating things, Chrysalis looks around, to all her assembled hive ready to fight, and... she does back down. She says this all must be some kind of misunderstanding, tells her hive to stop, asks Applejack nicely to tell her side to back down, and then she literally limps away, back to her ballroom, leavign a trail of blood down the street.
  • Canterlot is now in a swing of patriotic pride after having 'defeated' the changeling forces! Both the WBs and the Guard are seeing new recruits because of it.
  • Chrysalis meanwhile, after dropping off 7 and the others in the ballroom goes off to her quiet place to be alone, and lets it all hit her.
  • It hits her that its not going to work, it's not getting better, and that this ballroom isn't a home.. it's a prison.
  • She breaks down when she realizes she was moments away from possibly losing her whole hive, and that she backed down out of fear that they would suffer the same fate as Chitania's hive and leave her all alone.
  • No matter how hard she thinks... she can't find an answer for what to do.
  • But when Cadence and Celestia come through the portal, that changes.
  • After finding her, Cadence and her have a long, drawn out talk where Chrysalis at last reveals her fears, and Cadence decides that maybe... it's time for a change. Maybe it's time for her to be a real princess, and finally make a real change.
  • AJ talks with Celestia, and she tells her exactly what happened out there, or at least what she knows.
  • After calling the wounded Jetset into the room, Celestia learns of the miscommunication regarding 41 and 29, and that the fight was pointless.
  • Celestia also learns that Applejack never even asked why Chrysalis was angry with 29, which would have prevented all of this.
  • But instead of getting mad or criticizing, like expected, Celestia just shrugs and walks off.
  • Applejack is surprisingly unbothered by all of this, thinking things are going to go back to normal now.
  • But when Celestia finds Chrysalis... she learns that's not at all true. Chrysalis has an announcement, and she needs all the changelings in Canterlot to give it.
  • After an impassioned speech where she points out how they had been going about this all wrong and needed to make a real change with Canterlot, she tells them, openly and honestly, with all the heart she can muster, to speak as one with her...
  • "AND GIVE A FUCK YOU TO THESE ASSHOLES!"
  • "PACK YOUR THINGS AND FUCK THIS FUCKING BALLROOM! WE'RE GOING TO THE EMPIRE!"
  • ...Neat.

Thread 66 Edit

  • THE GREAT CHANGELING MIGRATION EDITION!
  • Flashback occurs where we get to see how Cadence convinced Shining to let them come over. Seeing as he wanted them allowed over there originally, this wasn't very hard.
  • The changelings all react in various ways to Chrysalis's announcement. Most good, some, like JJ, bad.
  • Celestia, who is in the room, is sad by this and wishes she had talked about it with AJ first, but understands why she didn't.
  • 56 openly declares he's going to stay anyway, and everyone kind of just lets him walk off, because it's 56 and nobody takes him seriously.
  • Dadling says he has to stay for the baby, and Chrysalis accepts.
  • JJ and Actarius have a tearful goodbye, and Actarius realizes he's homeless again.
  • 32 asks Chrysalis to stay as well, which she openly accepts if only to get him away from her, because he wants to become an 'ambassador' between changelings and Caterlot to hopefully keep their relationship from deteriorating.
  • 42 and Chrysalis muse about the move together, and lament how much different their own relationship has become.
  • After taking one last look, Chrysalis gives a "Fuck this place" and the changelings begin to march.
  • Canterlot reacts as they march through in various ways. Some, like Siegfried, look on in interest, some like Coltsly use this to sell some more robots, while Applejack just shrugs it off without a care, thinking this is all one big temper tantrum.
  • Every changeling marches to the train station where Shining, Cadence and Two are all waiting for them to eagerly accept them, no guards so it doesn't look like a transfer of prisoners or something like that.
  • Shining, Celestia and Chrysalis have a bit of banter, showing they're still friends, but the time has come. Slowly, all of the changelings begin to board the train that will take them to the empire.
  • Back in her office, Applejack is still stubbornly refusing to move, despite Spike urging her to. She still thinks this is all one big show and that everything will go back to normal soon. When Twilight arrives... she informs her this isn't true.
  • Applejack runs off at full speed, tearing down towards the train station to see for herself, but arrives too late. She doesn't make it in time before the train leaves the station, and she can only watch as they're all gone.
  • Needing to confirm, she rushes back to the Ballroom, finding it totally empty. She can only look on, shocked, as it all sinks in.
  • Celestia arrives shortly, and they begin to talk about it. Gently, Celestia explains while she did fail her first test as a princess, helping the changelings, that it is not the end of the world and she should not give up hope.
  • Applejack, being Applejack, agrees, deciding not to let her failure weigh her down and continue on helping Equestria, even musing that this might have been the right choice all along. Sadly, both of them leave the ballroom behind.
  • The changelings arrive in the Crystal Empire! Chrysalis's very first time giving a public speech wherein she wasn't allowed to just shoot anyone who annoyed her has some rocky starts, but eventually she is openly welcomed to the Empire!
  • She then promptly takes a nap... on Shiny's desk.
  • The changelings move into the stadium! It's not like they were going to use it anyway.
  • 42 is assigned a helper to help them get moved in, Citrine, a yellow Crystal Pony.
  • Spitfire quickly accepts them, understanding a thing or two about needing to beat past perceptions.
  • It looks like things are finally looking up!
  • But unknown to all, Sombra strike a deal with Maud... who, yes, is still in the Empire. No, she never left. Because of reasons.
  • Back at Canterlot, Diamond Tiara hands out the robots she asked Spike about earlier, which very closely resembles her mother, but declares they can only keep them as personal property if they use them in the field... nobody points out that's actually illegal. Because it's Diamond Tiara.
  • But after that, Diamond Tiara learns from Silver Spoon that the changelings, including 77 and 42, have left the Empire! She has a bit of a childish breakdown wherein she gets upset they didn't even say goodbye, eventually running off to her daddy to have a little cry.
  • Daw is trapped in the subspace room! Accidentally deleting the fences... somehow. She's now at the mercy of all of the creatures she has to frantically 'delete' while Vekir rushes off with Handydog to get Twilight!
  • She is eventually confronted by a resurrected Brahmos... who she deletes. Not very hard.
  • Twilight saves her, says she's got what she needs and then sends her off.
  • That done, Vekir asks Twilight to fix Handydog's many problems in exchange for him being her bodyguard, which she accepts.
  • Librarian is happy, until she learns that Chitania didn't go with the other changelings. Chitania takes the news of Chrysalis's departure very oddly.
  • The ballroom free, Sunset makes her move. She goes into the ballroom and finds a hidden stash of old items she left there forever ago, discovering them still in tact. Among them a talking Celestia doll she had enchanted, and also a certain crystal.
  • One which is supposed to capture dreams. In a room with changelings.
  • It also tries to take over her mind, but this does nothing to deter her.
  • Investigating it later, she finds an odd black energy absorbing the dream-magic inside it, and she begins to wonder just it means...
  • Fluttershy gives AJ a "Bad Applejack" and leaves.
  • Chrysalis wakes up, and it looks like things are finally going back to normal!

  • Chrysalis shows up and confronts AJ, essentially calling her out when Applejack tries to threaten her and rubbing it in her face that Applejack is powerless against her without her hive to hang over her head. After some posturing, she tells Applejack everything has changed, and she no longer considers her an enemy, just a 'nobody in a crowd' she doesn't care about.
  • All Applejack takes away from that is that she doesn't have to deal with her anymore or treat Chrysalis any different than she does anyone else.
  • Pinkie throws the Changelings a welcome party, no matter how much Shining protests.
  • Chrysalis is back in the game and doing wacky stuff with Twilight, Fluttershy and Pinkie.

She notices Scootaloo failing to fly again, and wishes she was back to being dumb so they could all go back to being adventurers. Pissed, she seeks out Discord.
  • 56 is wondering why Sunset Shimmer telling him off made him feel so bad while he was walking through Canterlot, when Discord appears. Discord tells him something is blocking his memories, and it's starting to slip
  • 56 decides he doesn't want it put back on.
  • Sweetie Belle arrives, and demands Discord remove her chaos stuff. Discord claims he can't, but there is a way to get rid of it and use it to repair Scootaloo's problems and allow her to fly. Desperate, she goes through with it.
  • She punches SL, it works, SL can fly again and Smarty Belle is no more.
  • 56 resigns from the junior fliers and writes an apology not to Sunset Shimmer.
  • Goes to see Luna and says he wants to be a nightguard. She gives vague hints at the... 'eccentric' captain of said nightguard, but otherwise doesn't help.
  • Now, he's about to confront Chrysalis and stop her from just picking him up and taking him home, which is what she's most likely to do.
  • And the CMC are back together.
  • Two things, Snake Eyes actually intervened about the Blindfold and 12 didn't have to wear it after all.
  • And 32 now has Fancy Pants' address courtesy of Primrose, who is programmed to try and convince changelings to drink insecticide and has a built in 'Drama Enhancemenf Program' courtesy of Rarity.

  • She reveals that she saw 'an event' from Chitania's mind, and that Arana was planning to tell her. Knowing she would only use it to rub in Chrysalis's face, she opted to tell it herself so she could hear it from someone who understood.
  • After an impromptu magic lesson from Chrysalis to show her only that memory, the past is revealed.
  • During the fight with Variolus in the past, we get to see how Chitania learned the memory trick she used on Chrysalis. We're taken back to the fateful day when Chitania's daughter ran off, and find her poised on the cliff

overlooking the valley of giant monsters, deciding whether or not to jump. All the while, Variolus is watching.

  • After some deliberaiton, Chitania's kid jumps.
  • Variolus asks her why she let that happen, considering how much Chitania protects her own kid.
  • Chrysalis's mother reveals she has a vision of a single, unified hive, one that needs Chitania to be it's guardian, not that weakling. She let her die so that they never have to fear Chitania being replaced. She did not do it herself, but she would not stop it from happening.
  • One life, in exchange for countless others.
  • After she leaves, Variolus turns back to her drone, and tells him to go watch it happen. Not to kill her, but to watch Chitania's child die.
  • We never get to see what happens after that, as it returns to the fight, and... well...
  • Lots of roaring, then things get fuzzy.
  • Back in present day, Chrysalis rages at AJ, thinking this is her trying to get in a low blow now that she doesn't have anymore power over her directly, and reveals she won't let this information be used as blackmail.
  • But despite all that, she won't turn to insulting Applejack's own mother, because as it turns out she didn't know anything about her.
  • Including the fact she was dead.
  • Applejack breaks down, saying she understands what it's like to lose the most important person in your world and be left with only a memory. She knows what it's like, and that's why she said it. She knew that if she information was to be said, even though she would rather it be kept hidden, it had to be from someone who understood what this meant.
  • After a moment, the two come to somewhat of an understanding. Chrysalis almost reaches out to her, but pulls back. Likewise, Applejack ends on a bit of a sassy note.
  • Alone, Chrysalis realizes that despite it all... her mother succeeded.
  • BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!
  • Fresh off that nightmare, Aj goes to confront Filthy Rich about DT's recent actions.
  • After a talk, Filthy reveals he knew, he just couldn't stop her.
  • After a long, drawn out talk where he explains his motivations for bringing DT to Ponyville in the first place was to keep her safe, he admits he's happy that his daughter will be a fighter instead of a victim with all the invasions, but still blames AJ for what went down. He wanted to keep her to be the biggest force in ponyville because he knew she might reach a new height that would consume her, but Applejack pulled her to it when she let her join in on the assault of the airship. His daughter could never go back, and it's Applejack's fault.
  • She agrees, knowing this is all her fault and decides to defer what happens next to him.
  • Defeated, she leaves him to his brownies, which as it turns out he's allergic to.
  • But oh, DT loves them so, and he'd do anything for his daughter.

  • Daw wants to join the gunclub.
  • 2 adorably ruins her school play
  • Cadence reports to Celestia that everything is going fine!
  • 42 goes looking for Twilight, finds AJ instead and has a terse standoff with her. While she initially tries to remain entirely professional, at the end she can't help but snap violently at Applejack for hurting someone she cares about before running off. Alone, AJ laments the loss of one of the few changelings she trusted.
  • After that, Arana tries to cheer her up with some... unfortunate methods. Mostly trying to explode her so she'll be happy that she isn't dead.
  • While she eventually does cheer her up, it sadly comes after she drops a mindcontrol thing on her head and sends her off for some cider. Whoops.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT/S/
  • Luna stalks out Chrysalis looking to speak with her, but stumbles across something quite strange instead.
  • Chrysalis... actually studying so that she can help her changelings out for once!
  • A bit of a back and forth ensues as they constantly try to one up the other, but don't really manage any firm grasp, and eventually the topic moved to 56.
  • When the question of his demise comes up, Luna gives a rather cold answer that if he went, she would merely assuage her feelings with cake and light a candle for him, no more.

  • It turns out, Chitania's child... is still alive.
  • He conks out before he can think too hard on that one, and his memory is suppressed by Variolus 'until the time is right'.
  • When he wakes up, Sunset sends him on his way after implying they had some 'fun' to keep him suspicious. Here, she reveals to Variolus that she too caught glimpses of that memory, thanks to the memory being brought from the conduit of the hivemind she is connected to. However, she's under the mistaken impression Chitania was trying to kill the changeling, which she does not know is related to her, because they knew something.
  • Nothing more to do, she needs to go back to feeding.
  • Twilight, while looking for Sunset, stumbles across a very odd thing in her room. A little doll.

  • Happy reunion?
  • NOPE! CHANGELING TO THE HEAD!
  • Seven had been following the trio in the hopes they would lead him to the prey that eluded him, and it paid off.
  • After beating on 29 for a bit, Trixie tries to intervene, does surprisingly well before Seven pins her

  • PINKIE IS BACK
  • Hangs out with Chrysalis and Fluttershy, she shows the Zotz
  • Wonderbolts were always terrible
  • Twilight finally catches up with Dollestia, who lead her right to... Sunset! And then runs
  • She chews her out for breaking into her files, but Sunset pleads her case, only managing to make it worse when she won't take responsibility for what she did.
  • Twilight becomes more and more enraged, and it reaches a breaking point when Sunset hints that she

needs to know this so that they can deal with the changelings, just in case.

  • Being thoroughly done Twilight says she's not going to deal with her, but rather that she was going to leave her punishment to Applejack. She orders Sunset to tell Applejack everything she did, and to let her decide if it was right or not.
  • Regardless, she bans her from the lab.
  • Alone, Variolus speaks to her, and tells her that she needs to go to Applejack with something real, or she'll just be cast out again.
  • Sunset believes her, and goes off to find Chitania.
  • Cadence and Rarity talk economics, it's... not good.
  • Pinkie tells Dash that the Wonderbolts have been partying while she's been studying, and Dash goes off in a rage.
  • Luna speaks to Mayor Mare, Trixie and Zecora about 29 and what transpired. Through them, she learns about the ghostkids, and takes a vested interest in 29's abilities.
  • Shortly thereafter, she decides she wants to take on 29 as a student to hone his powers, but learns from Celestia that you actually have to ASK first, which puts a damper on her plans.
  • 29 has a heart to heart with 56, convinces the little one to stay on the path to being a nightguard, and shares a heartwarming moment with 56 over it.
  • 29 and crew go home, realize they forgot to even talk to 32, which was what that whole trip was all about.
  • Luna visits MM's house in the night, turns out she's sleeping on the couch.
  • Luna's going to need a minute before she asks 29 to be her student...
  • 7 wakes up, Chrysalis lets him have it and threatens him.
  • Said infiltrator goes...a little crazy now that he's not on top anymore.
  • Screwloose starts working, but a discussion with 12 reveals that the changeling infusion is impossible, at least the way PD wants it. But she is, however, about to wreck someone's day.
  • 32 opens up the emissary and puts up a sign promising to answer any and all questions regarding changelings.He has to break out the good wine to get anyone interested in it.
  • Then he mostly answers crazy questions by drunk ponies.
  • Mothers day stories!
  • Cadence asks 2 why she doesn't call her mom all that often, 2 reveals it's because lots of ponies and changelings have moms, but only one of them has a Caddy. The word 'mom' doesn't mean much to a changeling, but Caddy means something special.
  • Chitania remembers her own mother and daughter.
  • Shiny, Twilight and Pinkie visit their folks and find them all in compromising positions.
  • Applebloom sees Applejack, and the two catch up. After some musing on whether or not she's missing Applebloom growing up, the filly reveals she didn't come alone! The entire apple clan come down to say hi to Applejack again!
  • They mostly party and get drunk and cause chaos all throughout Canterlot.
  • Spike talks to Daw about the bad first impression she made, she reveals it's just because she's used to rough and rowdy folks acting a certain way, and didn't understand how close they all were. Sunset, while running around, meets up with a drunk Applejack. Doesn't get a word in.
  • Applejack finally confronts Chitania about her driving folks off from the library. She demands the Titan move to a private room to stop scaring everyone.
  • Chitania says no.
  • She puts more pressure and threats on, Chitania still says no.
  • Out of desperation, she turns to Prostimare, who is utterly destroyed by what Applejack is asking to do.
  • Due to her 'profession', she's used to requests like this. That the rich and powerful don't want to 'see' certain members of society because it bugs them, so they demand they be pushed away and hidden away.
  • But it never stops, and they just get pushed further and further until they can't be seen anymore.
  • She knew Canterlot was like this, but she thought Applejack, as a former earth pony, was different. Applejack tries to plead her case, that she wouldn't let them do it to 'her', but accidentally lets it slip she doesn't even know PM's name.
  • It's revealed to be Sweet Note.
  • While she understands their stance, Applejack makes it clear Chitania HAS to move, or she would force her out entirely. Everyone deserves a chance to read. Since the library is owned by Celestia, if Celestia gives the okay she better either move, or a fight is going to break out.
  • Chitania tells her to bring it.
  • Later, after Applejack leaves, the Librarian is in a state of depression because she knows if a fight does break out, the library will be destroyed regardless of who wins. This was her passion, to see others read and grow, but now it's useless.
  • Sweet Note pleads her case, but after seeing how much it hurts her she eventually asks Chitania if a fight breaks out to take it away from the library.
  • The librarian is shocked that Sweet Note stuck up for her, considering her past abuse, but Chitania reacts differently.
  • Declaring she's not one for schemes, she's decided she's going to wing this one.
  • She leaves, Sweet Note right on her tail.
  • All the while, a guard is benefiting off fear of the library by charging exorbitant prices to rent books by proxy.

Thread 77 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, CRAZY TRAIN HAS NO BREAKS EDITION!
  • STARTING OFF WITH THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Jetset has found the conductor who transported 12 and is 'interrogating' him, unsuccessfully.
  • But just as he's about to get more extreme, a pair of changeling hooves grabs hold and zaps the brain out of him!
  • Thinking it's 7, Jetset attacks, and is swiftly put into a wall with one punch. One punch from Punchbug herself, that is.
  • She rushes off, but while Jetset thinks he can get ahead of her, he doesn't know she's gotten the hang of teleporting, and makes it to the portal first. She tells Chrysalis about 12, where he's at and what that place normally does to others, and well... she takes it well.
  • “APPPPPLLLLEEEJJAAAAAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKK!”
  • Cue Chrysalis losing her everloving mind and going on a rampage unseen in all of Equestria. She tosses Jetset through the ceiling and chases Applejack all through the castle, leaving destruction in her fireball-like wake.
  • The guards try to step in, and are knocked away by her ROARING at them.
  • Spike tries to swoop in and be the hero, and straight up gets punted across the sky.
  • But then Shining steps in, determined to end this!... And then she outright force-pushes him away without even slowing down.
  • "Can we talk about this?"
  • And then Chrysalis starts strangling Applejack.
  • All hope seems lost and air long gone, but from nowhere she is saved by a glorious slow-mo punch that sends Chrysalis flying!
  • A punch from a very, very big hoof... full of holes.
  • Chitania has apparently decided to go with plan C for that whole issue with Applejack, and starts calling her "AJ" and acting like they are the best of friends.
  • Chrysalis gets more angry. So angry, she literally shoots lasers. She shoots lasers from her eyes out of rage.
  • Applejack pleads with her, trying to explain that she never meant for it to get this bad, but Chrysalis is hearing none of it. She demands her changeling back, and is enraged when Applejack can't deliver.
  • She prepares to attack again, but Applejack receives more reinforcements in form of her family! Her entire Apple Clan surrounds her and vows to protect her.
  • Chrysalis doesn't even slow down.
  • Seeing that not only could she easily break through them, but that she likely could incinerate them in the process, Applejack begs and pleads for Chrysalis to stop and not hurt her family. She offers herself, anything that will prevent her from hurting them.
  • Eventually, Chrysalis does stop, and gives a chilling declaration that Applejack had 24 hours to return her changeling or there will be consequences.
  • Before Chrysalis leaves, she is confronted by Celestia, who surprisingly offers a sympathetic hoof and tries to reassure the Queen he will be brought back alive. Chrysalis does not acknowledge it, but understands.
  • After she's gone, Celestia gives an equally chilling decree. When 12 is returned, Applejack will decide her own punishment, with one twist. She will decide the case as if it was Chrysalis who went behind her back and endangered one of her family, and the severity that Applejack herself would demand as punishment to her will be used.
  • After she leaves, Applejack notices she's still being held by Chitania, and demands to be put down, which the Queen obliges.
  • Strangely, Chitania immediately switches gears. Acting harsh and suspicious to Applejack while also trying to 'subtly' gesture
  • They find out why a second later when reporters spill out! Turns out, they got it all on tape. Chitania saving her, declaring that AJ is her buddy, everything. It looked like they're friends.
  • Ironically, Chitania goes completely honest, explaining that she and Applejack are not friends and that she was pretending, twisting up Applejack all the way. But despite this, nobody buys it! Everyone thinks she's lying and that they are secret friends... just as Chitania intended.
  • She whispers to Applejack she's not going to lie, but that she knows they won't believe it.
  • She leaves, her family remains.
  • Then Applejack faints.
  • Applehorse out.
  • Elsewhere, Chrysalis finds Shining stuck to a wall by her green goo. Though he's mad, he softens up immensely when she honestly and earnestly apologizes, and decides to support her because he too has gone insane when his loved ones were endangered.
  • Twilight finds them both soon after, starts to rage, gets explained, rages no more, starts to rage again when it's revealed Spike was knocked off Canterlot, rages less when it's revealed it's Shinings fault because he tried to catch him and Spike rolled, decides to wait and see for the raging.
  • Some reporters debate the ethics of revealing Chitania and AJ are friends, decide money is worth more.
  • Applejack wakes up, and her whole family reveals they're not leaving until this matter is settled, no matter how much she wants them to.
  • She immediately calls a meeting with the other Mane Six, groans are heard, she declares she needs to get him home.
  • Chitania goes back to the library, while Sweet Note is stoked about her being friends with Applejack, and finds the librarian expecting a war. She's relieved when that wasn't Chitania doing the wrecking, and to the Librarian's joy Chitania's plan worked! The ponies think she's friends with Applejack and at last return to the library! All is well... or is it?
  • Sunset is still preparing for their confrontation.
  • 32 remembers what Variolus tried to hide from him, and sets out to find Chitania's daughter.
  • Chrysalis and Celestia talk, the former reveals she feels bad she hurt some others, but not that she caused this destruction. Celestia understands.
  • 42, after keeping Cadence out of harms way, goes to the hive to gather an army, but Chrysalis orders her to wait, fearing this may be a trap on Applejack's end. She says none of them are to go.
  • Still, 42 bends some words and realizes she said none of THEM are to go.
  • DT, Daw and SS find Spike and fish him out.
  • Screwloose reveals her plan, which is to sabotage a demonstration and go right for Pennydrop.
  • Cadence wants to think everything is fine.
  • Thirty Two talks with 18 about what happened, and says he wants to talk to the Hive.
  • 88 asks 77 if he wants to go. Much dancing around the issue, but he admits he does because 12 was the only one who listened to him back in the day, but he doesn't want to leave her alone.
  • She makes him go off, he promises to bring 12 back.
  • 42 arrives in Canterlot, intending to pass through quickly, but is confronted by Applejack.
  • They have a back and forth, and eventually AJ begs her to let her help make this right. 42 agrees so long as she can use the A-team.
  • ALL of the A-team.
  • Past AND present members.
  • Reluctantly, Applejack agrees, and the race is on.
  • MEANWHILE!
  • Luna goes down to Ponyville and informs 29 she wishes to take him on as a student! At first he's for it, then he learns it doesn't pay and is against it, but eventually comes back around.
  • Her teaching methods are a liiitttle off, and there are some... struggles.
  • Lots of struggles.
  • She is not good at this.
  • But 29 wants to learn, so what's the worst that can happen?

Thread 78 Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP, SNAKE? SNAKE!? SNAAAAAAKE EDITION!

  • 42 assembles her team! But when Applejack brings her to a mysterious hanger, she gets more than she expected to.
  • The other main six are there, and they're joining in the fun! 42 attempts to argue for a bit, but realizes pretty quickly that having the greatest heroes in Equestria on your side is a boon.
  • The rest of the A-team is assembled, with DT rushing off with Spike and leaving SS with Daw. Alone, the latter two try to hang out, and it is hilariously awkward.
  • Soon enough, 77 is also located, and that's not all, as another changeling joins their group...
  • Well, 7 IS still technically a member.
  • 42 attempts to take charge, and is comically undercut by Twilight at every opportunity. At the same time, Twilight tries to help repair 42 and AJ's broken relationship.
  • They all hop in the new and improved stealth capable Highwind, and they are off like a rocket, literally, making quips and interacting all the way.
  • Back at home, PD learns of AJ's "Alliance" with Chitania, and suprisingly reacts oddly cold about the matter.
  • Batmom is back to being on patrol with her Nightguard friends, showing the camaraderie they all have and the dedication to their work. They're a tight unit, and they look out for each other.
  • Or, as Dadling finds out when some frat boys consider throwing tomatoes, they look out for each other's family too.
  • Sunset goes looking for Applejack, being told by Pommel that she's left and can't speak to her. Distraught over being 'abandoned', she's put under the thrall of Variolus when she sleeps as the Queen sets out to follow her 'child' and take control of Chitania's offspring. What this means is still up in the air...
  • Discord abducts Pommel and explains to him using his trademark visual style exactly what it is he has trapped in that machine, including it's origins and how to properly contain it. One little problem, they need Twilight. Sooo... * Pommel is now hunkering down and hoping that the danger room doesn't kill them all.
  • Pommel informs Celestia of this. She takes it... well?
  • While looking for 42, Two stumbles across Applebloom, who had been taped to the wall by her overprotective brother. * Joining up with her and the other two CMC, the four go off and have their own adventures, mostly centered around the fact 2 can fwoosh bigger.
  • Down in Ponyville, oblivious to all of this, Luna continues to 'train' 29 and talks with Zecora, Mayor Mare and Trixie, leading to political misunderstandings, swindlings and egobusting. Not in that order.
  • Also, Luna can cut a ghost. That is a thing.
  • Chitania is scaring the other ponies less and less.
  • Chrysalis is worried back at home. Celestia promises if 12 isn't in one piece, she can punch Applejack.
  • On the airship, AJ talks with Seven, who reveals he's not mad about the 'nearly got killed' thing. She doesn't know how to take that.
  • DT muses that this is the first time all the A-team was on a mission.
  • Pinkie, Dash and Fluttershy make weird observations.
  • And 42 should not be driving that thing.
  • Upon arrival, and once 42 points out they need stealth, they come to a problem.
  • ...They're not a stealthy group. What with being national heroes and/or weird species.
  • Good thing three of them are changelings.
  • Seventy Seven breaks into a scientists home, and attempts to interrogate him, alluding to the fact he is willing to torture him to get the information.
  • ...Then Seven points out this is dumb, and then just reads his mind. Because changeling.
  • Seventy Seven doesn't know how he forgot about that...
  • Seven is chosen to go down, and the rest prepare to get going if something goes wrong. Aside from that, they're going to remain cloaked in the airship.
  • Taking on the disguise of the scientist, Seven infiltrates the base... and then is immediately roped into a birthday party.
  • After partying for a bit, he escapes that, and realizes this place is a maze.
  • While trying to find SL and 12, he realizes none of the scientists are being held here. Just the opposite, they're happy to be there, because PD lets them cut loose and experiment without regulations. Stuff goes wrong, but nobody is being held back.
  • Eventually, Seven manages to find a way to get to both SL and 12 while the former is experimenting with the changeling blood, and making a note of the strange capabilities of it.
  • He reveals himself to both when SL notices he's not scared of her, so thus he couldn't be the scientist he was posing as, and he says he needs to get them out.
  • Needless to say, 12 is stunned Chrysalis sent not only an agent, but the A-team and the Elements as well.
  • Screwloose is less impressed, and dicks around with Seven.
  • Growing tired of it, Seven says they need to go.
  • BWEEEEEEE~!
  • ...and then Screwloose has hit the alarm, and now the whole base is converging on them all.
  • Because she is a crazy person.
  • "Of course it wasn't going to be that easy..."

Thread 79 Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP, MICHEAL BAY IS FEELING FUNNY IN HIS PANTS EDITION!

  • While Luna continues to train 29 and 2 continues to hang out with the CMC, everything else starts going terribly wrong!
  • With the alarm sounded, 7 gets angry at SL and demands to know what the hell is wrong with her!
  • But he's beaten to the punch when 12 ALSO demands to know what's wrong with her, but with more shaking!
  • After some back and forth, she lets it slip she's not ready to go yet, because she's not sure she'll ever get another shot at Pennydrop.
  • He's saddened by this, pointing out that even if she gets that shot, she probably won't make it out alive, and eventually decides he's had enough. He tells her if she wants to stay, that's fine, but he's leaving.
  • While appearing strong at first, she breaks down shortly afterwards, telling him he promised Tinsel he would stick around. He shoots back he did, he followed her till the very end, but he did it so he could help her, not let her throw her life away.
  • When he and 7 leave, she had a relapse into her dog phase before breaking down and chasing after them. He was waiting the whole time. She says she'll go with him, and it's heartwarming.
  • ...for about half a second, then come the soldiers.
  • 7 is worried he's going to get shot again.
  • Outside, the others put together that stuff has gone terribly, terribly wrong, and decide to break in. They pair off into teams and all go into a different entrance.
  • A-team crew of 42, 77, Spike and DT go in first.
  • Then goes Dash and Fluttershy.
  • Pinkie and Twilight.
  • Then finally, AJ and Rarity.
  • Annnd, then AJ forgets to set the autopilot on the Highwind. Whoops.
  • All four groups get into various fights with the security systems and personnel, discovering just what has been going on down here, and it's not good.
  • AJ repeatedly tries to get them to surrender peacefully, but they never do due to random attacks.
  • Fluttershy finds the animals they experimented on, and she's quite irate to put it mildly.
  • Twilight keeps trying to download data, but keeps getting stopped.
  • Pinkie brought the Harmony box.
  • Seven briefly gets infected by a worm before Screwloose stabs him to get it out.
  • And then Pennydrop, under a mysterious disguise orders the scientist in charge to "Make it so they never get out"
  • ...It's not a good day.
  • And it gets even worse at Canterlot!
  • Variolus, possessing Sunset, makes her way to the portal, and very violently knocks out all the soldiers stationed to guard it.
  • She breaks through to the other side, and then begins planting strange red crystals all throughout the Empire.
  • Using her unique abilities makes it into the room with the Crystal Heart. Using her special circumstances, she tethers her stone heart to it, and slowly begins siphoning off it's power.
  • ...And then she goes Titan, even larger than Chitania normally did, and begins attacking the Empire.
  • The red crystals turn into faux-Changelings, which look identical to the real thing, and begin attacking the Empire citizens.
  • Pommel is trying to debate if he should go help at the CE or not because it would leave Canterlot totally unprotected from the possibility of a resurrected Red.
  • The soliders are quick to start firing, but can't hurt her, and what little they do is instantly regenerated.
  • Chrysalis has a crisis when she realizes history is going to repeat itself one way or another. Either she orders her Hive to go attack and protect the Empire, risking a redux of what befell Chitania's hive, or she flees and her last bastion of safety is taken away, and her and her Hive go back into hiding and sapping love that way.
  • She comes to a choice, and declares in her booming voice, "CHANGE!"
  • She transforms her hive, putting them all in Armor, and branding that armor with the mark of her Hive. She orders them to go out and tear the imposters apart.
  • She looks to Variolus, and declares she is not Chitania, she is CHRYSALIS, and she is the greatest Queen of them all!
  • Shining Armor and Cadence attempt to stop Variolus with the suffocation trick Shining used on Chitania. It fails to work because Variolus doesn't need to breath, and they're knocked away.
  • Heading towards the Empire at this moment, Chitania is talking to herself and musing that what she is doing is really stupid. She knows it's a trap and it's impossible, but she's still going. She stops just before she crosses the final border to the Empire.
  • Celestia, who had been following her, questions this.
  • After a back and forth, Chitania reveals what she heard in her mind. Celestia, also believing it is a trap, is utterly disgusted that anyone would do that.
  • Even still, while knowing it's being stupid, Chitania can't help it. She says it doesn't matter how long it takes for her plan to go off, before declaring she is going to rip the head off whoever is using their voices.
  • Truly sad that someone would manipulate her like that, but understanding, Celestia follows if only to lessen the damage she will cause.
  • Chrysalis confronts Variolus, and after a pitched battle Chrysalis very nearly has her plan go off, and was mere seconds from wiping out Variolus's mind entirely.
  • Utterly beaten, Variolus has to do a last resort and put Sunset's mind between Chrysalis and her own, and hope she hesitates. The Queen does, and Chrysalis is knocked away into the snow. If not for her love-harness she took from Twilight, she would have been broken entirely.
  • Chrysalis takes it well, deciding to go for plan B.
  • Mane-Iac, the Airforce, the Soldiers, and Spitfire all give it their best shot to bring down Variolus, but can't stop her.
  • Chrysalis meets up with Shining and Cadence, who she had caught earlier when they were hit, reveals Sunset's whereabouts, and goes over their possible plans. After revealing she has two, one of which would end with Sunset dead as well, they decide to take the riskier option if it means saving her.
  • After she's gone, Shining and Cadence share one last moment.
  • 32 is struggling to defend 13 from the golems, but doesn't think he can manage for much longer because 13 won't run.
  • In a bout of rage, 13 reveals that no, she's not strong like Chitania is... but she has her own strength.
  • She unleashes a mind-control spell, and actually manages to take over the golems for a second, despite the fact that 32 declares nothing short of a Queen level mind could do that. Interestingly, when she makes them bow to her, they all have the mark of CHRYSALIS'S hive on them.
  • She laments she is strong, but never in a way that would make Chitania love her, and then they turn to dust.

Thread 80 Edit

  • Pommel, Lucky Strikes and Haymaker hunker down in front of the machine, despite Pommel's reservations that this makes him look weak.
  • Inside, a copy of the Cordyceps tries to take over Red and Fake-Brahmos, to no avail, since it is a program.
  • Desperate to fulfill it's need to spread, Red comes up with an idea, and starts printing it.
  • Copyceps takes over paper, aaaannnd... it's going about as well as you expect.
  • It's not exactly a problem.
  • Just as little is the problem of 56 getting confronted by an irate Lyra and confused Bonbon
  • Way, way MORE of a problem is when those bandits finally make their move on Gwen and her crew! They attack the train, all a ploy to 'kidnap' the prince and Queen.
  • Thanks to some stalling from someone TOTALLY not doing this on PD's behalf to drum up sales for her robots, some quick thinking from Vekir and a whole lot of Robo-Dog punches, the bandits are soundly defeated and the leader is punched right out of the train via Handydog!
  • ...Turns out, he was the only one who knew who they worked for, so they can't find out who ordered the attack now.
  • Whoops.
  • MEANWHILE The A-team and EOH battle through the fortress, fighting monsters and security and scientists of all shapes and sizes and kinds!
  • The A-team decimates their droids, Fluttershy turns their monsters against them while Dash helps out, Rarity learns shocking truths about her beauty products, Twilight out sciences the scientists and Pinkie has a ball!
  • All the while, Applejack keeps trying to convince them to give up... it never works.
  • All of them are incredulous that any of the security would point weapons at national heroes, but there you go!
  • Desperate to get out without getting arrested or mind controlled, Snake Eyes hatches a plan to force the EOH to accept a deal of his.
  • He is going to let out a bunch of crazy monsters in order to distract the changelings, and hold hostage the reveal of who is REALLY behind this!
  • Still, while this is going on 7 is battling his way through the place, desperate to keep 12 and Screwloose out of harms reach!
  • It works out pretty well, and they even smell the exit, possibly, things are looking up!... Until they're confronted by a giant centipede.
  • A giant, armored, electric spitting super centipede.
  • ...And 7 just happens to be low on love.
  • After a bit of banter, he also realizes they're almost certainly pulling out all the stops to keep SCREWLOOSE, not him. He could have just forced 12 to come, he didn't have to bring her, and he could have probably been out already.
  • He hates his job.
  • But no matter! He still protects both and tries run along the centipede, and gets electrocuted for his troubles.
  • On his last legs, literally, he puts himself between 12, Sl and the centipede and tells them to run, but they won't.
  • Not like they need to, because from the roof come the A-team!
  • And from the wall the Cenitpede didn't explode, it's Twilight and Pinkie!
  • And there, coming up from the floor like a demented gopher, it's Rarity and Applejack(who proceeds to hug the life out of 12)!
  • And who's coming down the hall? Fluttershy and her army of animal friends, pulling her chariot while Dash holds on for dear life!
  • Everyone is all together again!
  • ...And then the head scientist calls in literally everything to their position, including the ones Snake Eyes let out.
  • This doesn't go as badly as expected.
  • With everyone there, it's a curbstomp! Nothing stands even the slightest chance with them. The combined power is such that, after they've decimated all the others, the giant-dragon-sized Centipede gives up.
  • Literally, white flags and everything. 98 of them even!
  • It's time to go home?
  • Not yet, one more thing.
  • Applejack at last confronts the head scientist behind all of this!... it doesn't go as expected.
  • The scientist reveals she didn't do all of this because of lust for power or reckless abandon. She reveals she was a medical doctor at the head of a wing that treated incurable diseases. After years of fighting with Equestria's backwards system for approvals for experiments, she grew tired of watching them perish while crawling along looking for a cure.
  • When her 'mysterious benefactor' came to her with money and no regulations or forms, she took the chance, and has been making way more progress than she ever did in that system.
  • She calls out Applejack for being a hypocrite, praising selfless heroics when there is a big opponent to fight, but not when someone puts their body up to be used for science, even though it's just as dangerous and noble.
  • Applejack slaps the shit out of her.
  • The princess shoots back she didn't ever doubt their bravery, but those regulations aren't to hold anyone back, it's to keep anyone from going off the deep end, and making sure nobody takes advantage of those brave souls who would do that. More than that, it's to keep those who are down on their luck from being used and abused.
  • She points out that, while everything they made in here had a good reason to be, but every single one of them were used to fight her, not for good.
  • Despairing, the scientist can't argue she lost her way.
  • Still, Applejack is oddly understanding, and comforts her as best she could.
  • ...That's when the proximity alarm goes off.
  • Turns out, Highwind is about to crash into the site!
  • And it would have too, if not for...
  • SNAP!
  • Fluttershy saves the day with chaos magic! A giant spring stops the Highwind!
  • And then crashes it.
  • ...Good news! That giant centipede is actually a train.
  • Whelp! All that's left to do now is round up all the scientists and head home. But Applejack and crew decide... let's take our time. No rush, plenty of time left.
  • All's well that ends well, in the 12 rescue arc!
  • ...meanwhile, the Crystal Empire is getting DESTROYED.
  • Variolus watches the carnage, and reminisces about when this happened before, how the ponies didn't fight back against her and relied on Chitania's soldiers, even as they feared and loathed them.
  • She admits that she hated them, but none of that matters now. All that matters is finishing the fight with Chitania.
  • The changelings have no idea what that symbol on themselves means.
  • They DO however know how to use guns.
  • Chrysalis finds 18, and reveals she has a plan.
  • Sombra tries to distract her with some fake armor ploy, it doesn't work for long.
  • Even the paperwork monster is ineffective!
  • But soon, Variolus detects a presence going about the Empire, setting 'something' up.
  • Sunset pleads with her, no casualties, and reluctantly she agrees. Still, she does stress she will let nothing stand in her way from her goal.
  • When Chrysalis finally reveals herself, Variolus grabs her and mocks her, destroying spires made of green, strange symbols on the ground, everything the other 'set up' to take her down. She has won?
  • "Aaaaaaccctttaullly", said Chrysalis, and not the one she was currently holding with magic.
  • Turns out, they decided to forgoe that whole intricate plan thing and just combined her powers with Shining and Cadence to create a giant, supercharged love spear.
  • 18 lets her disguise drop just an instant before Variolus takes it right to the chest.
  • ..."Missed"
  • Indeed. Hoping only to subdue, but not kill her, they missed her stone heart.
  • But what they didn't know is that the stone heart lets her regenerate, even that level of damage.
  • Now the second time she was nearly defeated, Variolus decides she can take no more risks, and drains as much as she can from the Crystal Heart and prepares to wipe the three out, not caring that it will kill anyone in it's path of the coming blast as well!
  • In a moment of desperation and determination, Chrysalis stands her ground, and fires with everything she has!
  • Cadence digs deep into her own well of power, and charged Chrysalis to a new level while Shining Armor shields those down below!
  • The blasts meet, and it is blocked... but it did not make it past the shield.
  • Chrysalis suffers another burnout, and nearly dies, only to be saved by another kiss by Shining Armor. It looks like they won!
  • GRAAHHHHHH!
  • Of course they didn't.
  • Now out of options, they're at her mercy... or so they thought.
  • With a thundering BOOOM! CHITANIA HAS ARRIVED AND SHE IS READY TO FIGHT!
  • Celestia goes down to speak with Shining Armor, who is surprisingly bitter that Chitania is here, willing to fight that other monster.
  • Celestia slaps some sense into him.
  • They all watch as they approach each other, Variolus preparing to let out a big speech at last.
  • And then Chitania breaks her jaw off with one punch.
  • yes, breaks it OFF.
  • Then comes the beatings.
  • During the beatdown of her life, Variolus goes inside her own mind to see what is going wrong, and finds Sunset in there. Sunset, and a whole lot of mental chains.
  • Variolus's last attack had been too much, she would not allow her body to be used as a murder weapon.
  • Left with nothing else, she bound her souls to the chains that now hold Variolus's mind. If Variolus breaks the chains, she will wipe out Sunset as well, and with her the stone heart shall break and Variolus will be pulled into the void.
  • There will be no escape for either of them when Chitania finishes her off.
  • Chillingly, Sunset declares... “We are already dead.”
  • ... And Luna has no idea any of this is going on!

Thread 81 Edit

  • With Variolus pinned down by Sunset's magic, she's unable to fight back as Chitania literally tears her apart.
  • Desperate to get back, she reveals her plan to Sunset at last. Which was to find Chitania's still living daughter, attack where ever she was, issue a mental challenge to Chitania to make it look like Chitania was coming to the Hive's defense, almost win, then let herself be defeated by Chitania's daughter to repair the bond broken between them. This would reunite the pair, hopefully fix Chitania and Chrysalis's relationship and return Chitania to previous status as defender of the Hive.
  • When Sunset still will not budge, she gives into one last ditch effort, and tells Sunset to simply absorb her soul to prove she wishes this to happen.
  • Sunset says no, so Variolus forces the issue by trying to absorb Sunset's soul.
  • Faced with oblivion, Sunset relents, and finally defeats Variolus once and for all, and gains all of her memories and powers in the process.
  • Back in reality, Chitania has reduced Variolus's Titan form to rubble, and is about to finish her off, when who emerges from her carcass but Sunset herself!
  • More specifically, the fiery red demon Sunset.
  • Thanks to the potent mixture of Chaos Magic and draining what remains of the Crystal Heart, Sunset is able to fight back, and blows a hole in Chitania's chest, exposing her heart.
  • Before she can be killed, 13 comes to her defense, and with her mental powers subdues Sunset and returns her back to pony form.
  • Initially, it looks like she is prepared to leave her mother again, uncaring even as Chitania offers her heart again to be devoured.
  • But, eventually, her pleading gets to her, and 13 returns to her mother to reconcile at last.
  • To the shock of all, Chitania actually start bawling.
  • Sunset smiles going unconscious, and the day is saved!
  • ...aside from the whole... destroyed thing.
  • And that's when Awkward Changeling comes home!
  • Sunset is sealed up by a LOT of magic, as they are taking no chances, and forced into a magical coma to prevent her from going Titan again.
  • Chrysalis tries to stomp forwards to demand answers, and then promptly collapses and goes into her own coma as her draining and exhaustion overdo it, and she goes down.
  • Celestia initially tries to take Sunset, but Shining Armor won't have it, insisting that they keep her in the Empire so that they, not Equestria, can deliver judgement.
  • Defeated, Celestia instead chooses to bring Chrysalis back to Canterlot to be treated, to which Shining Armor agrees. She does so, and after dropping the Queen off to be treated begins assembling everyone she can to go help the Empire. This mostly concerns yelling at Pommel.
  • She's a little stressed out.
  • Seeing that Chitania is still very much still there and needs to be dealt with, Shining Armor decides to handle it alone and breaks off from Cadence. Internally, he's warring with himself, noticing he's a lot more angry at her than he should be, and grows concerned about it.
  • Still, he manages to keep... mostly cool when talking to her, and thanks to a request from 13 Chitania is cleared of all charges, and free to go between the Empire and Canterlot now.
  • With that settled, they begin to look through the wreckage, and begin the rebuilding.
  • ...It's about two minutes in before the stress gets to Candece and she swaps out with 18, while she herself goes and repairs the Heart. Shining Armor is not amused.
  • On the way there, Applejack and crew are having a rocking time! Riding on the back of the Centitrain, having fun and listening to some jumping beats while they transport all the scientists and monsters with them.
  • For once, everything seems to be going just great, except for Snake Eyes, who is realizing the whole world is going bad for him. Him aside, everyone is in full victory swing!
  • ...and THEN they pull up to the Empire.
  • Twilight, 42, 77 and 7 all tear off in a panic in search of their loved ones, the others eventually get their heads in gear and do so as well, and Rarity is left to bring the scientists back to Canterlot.
  • Twilight finds, tackles, and interrogates Shining.
  • 77 finds 88, and she's okay.
  • 42 decides to stick with Cadence as she repairs the heart and is moping.
  • 7 is... somewhere.
  • Applejack finds Chitania and confronts her, but learns she had nothing to do with the wreckage and that 13 is her daughter. After that, she learns about Sunset, and shortly after she tears off Chitania and 13 decide to go back to Canterlot. Mostly so 13 can see Chrysalis, who she is still worried about.
  • Applejack goes to where Sunset is being guarded by both Crystal Guard and Changelings, completely locked in a room and surrounded on all sides with no one there in with her.
  • No matter how much she yells, they won't let her in, due to the fact they don't even know if it's Sunset in there.
  • Depsondent, she leaves.
  • 32 realizes his mother is gone-gone, and has a little moment of reflection before he goes back to Canterlot
  • None of the doctors know how to treat love-burnout, and panic. Twilight arrives in Canterlot to treat Chrysalis and kicks them all out.
  • 10 and BBB finally arrive and are pissed they missed the action.
  • While she is barking orders at Pommel, Two comes up to ask Celestia if she can use the portal and go home. Celestia... is a little unnerved.
  • So she sticks her and the CMC with Cheerilee, who happened to be in Canterlot.
  • Having exactly one place still in tact, all of the CE citizens are forced to go into the stadium with the changelings to keep warm.
  • There's no room now, and most of the lings are on the ceiling.
  • Everyone's a little on edge.
  • Sombra puts his plans on hold to help with the rebuilding.
  • Mane-Iac is wondering why it's not back to normal already like in her comics.
  • Fluttershy should not use her chaos magic to solve problems.
  • Celestia is angry when Rarity gives her the scientists, because she doesn't have anywhere to put them. All she can do is order them to go inside of a giant warehouse.
  • Shining puts the shield back up, so at least they won't freeze.
  • Him and Cadence talk and muse there's not enough room for everyone while they rebuild, and that 42 is going to be moping for a bit.
  • MEANWHILE! Paperceps is defeated, because they just unplugged the printer.
  • On the road, Gwen and the others come across Gryphonstone, and are robbed blind.
  • At least, until Vekir shows them who's boss and robs them right back.
  • "Kid, you scare me sometimes."
  • Back with Idris, his sister comes to visit, and she brings her sickly little child! After having been sent off to be married for political reasons and gave birth to a single sickly thing before her husband died, she's not bitter.
  • Not at all.
  • Chrysalis wakes up, and her and Twilight have a talk. While the alicorn congratulates and thanks her for helping, and praises her for spitting in the face of a dark history, she is sad when she won't forgive Applejack.
  • She breaks down and points out how it's just getting worse and worse, and that eventually one of them, if not both of them, are going to hurt someone innocent in the middle, just like Chitania and Variolus did. It doesn't matter who's right or wrong, only what they're doing.
  • And she doesn't want it to happen because BOTH of them are her friends, and she will be there right till the end. She's sure Applejack would be her friend too if Chrysalis gave her a chance.
  • Still, Chrysalis doesn't believe her, and Twilight leaves defeated.
  • After her, Celestia comes in looking for answers about Sunset, and she gives them as best she can. She too wishes that this fighting would stop, and points out how self destructive it is to both of them. How one of them always has the 'edge' until the other does something, and then they lord it over the other and use it as proof they should never trust the other, and things never get better.
  • Still, Chrysalis remains unwilling to move, and says it's on Applejack.
  • Finally, Applejack brings in 12 to show Chrysalis he's okay. She has a brief dialog with him, and sends him on his way.
  • Applejack stays behind and asks if that made up for it, Chrysalis doesn't even pretend to say yes.
  • She breaks down, admitting that this time she messed up, and she'll never be allowed to make it better because Chrysalis gets more mileage out of it that way. She gives up, ready to finally call it quits and let Chrysalis do whatever she wants.
  • Chrysalis could just let this go, and finally, FINALLY have a perfect win against Applejack, but instead...
  • "I mind controlled you once."
  • After the initial rage, Applejack realizes she too could use this for a win, as even Shining Armor would be hesitant to forgive something like that. So when Chrysalis offers to show her what happened, she is faced with her own choice.
  • After she gives Chrysalis the magic, she learns of the time Chrysalis made her a puppet so she could talk to her.
  • Anger is had on both sides, before Chrysalis finally just tells her they should call it square, even though she feels what Applejack did was worse.
  • There is talk, deliberation and questioning...
  • And then Applejack agrees.
  • It's square. It's now, one hundred percent, even. Past experiences don't count anymore, it's square. Nobody is more right or better off than the other now. No rageing, mind controlling or punching counts.
  • For once, Chrysalis and Applejack are on one hundred percent even terms.

  • Pommel is clueless 18 is not Cadence
  • 7 brings his 'report' to Chrysalis. She's angry he went off like that on his own, and 7 feels disparaged he couldn't make her like him again. He leaves just before she can tell him she wasn't mad, she just didn't want him in the hospital again
  • Pennydrop learns of her losses, they're big. Decides to 'recoup some losses'
  • Gwen learns about the events that happened, is horrified.
  • Sleepover with Celestia!
  • Twilight finds out about Red, freaks out, hatches a plan and gets going!
  • With Pommel's help, she tricks Red, Brahmos and Cordyceps into the mainframe of Primrose by making them think they were going into a juggernaut. They're trapped in him now, and cannot escape... probably.
  • Applejack learns of Applebloom's antics, is not amused.
  • Neither is Rarity to Sweetie Belle, but she is easily distracted.
  • Shiny visits Chrysalis in a dream to talk about what happened. He learns from her that the recharge save after she burnt out was a lot stronger this time, and he's not sure what that means.
  • Actarius is now working for 32 at the changeling embassy. JJ helps by distracting them with terrible juggling

  • AJ's family wrecked her desk.

  • Spike meets 88, talks about his balls.
  • The changelings decide to start singing "Cider on the walls in wait", the CE citizens join in.
  • TIME SKIIIIIP
  • One month later, Chrysalis is finally out of bed. For real this time, as she tried three times earlier and collapsed.
  • Learns it's almost Hearth's Warming.
  • She hadn't been paying attention.
  • Luna has been training 29 wrong because she too did not pay attention.
  • It turns out AJ has been coming down to see Sunset every day for that month, worrying Spike and Rarity.
  • Empire is back to normal, except the stadium... more on that later.
  • 42 has been shopping with Cadence while Sombra floats behind her and mocks her.
  • Chrysalis goes to see Twilight, learns about Sunset's present state, reveals she hasn't seen Applejack since the reset, and also that OnO is being prepped. She also learns...
  • Chrysalis bursts in on Celestia, where she demands to know why her changelings are back in the Canterlot ballroom.
  • Celestia reveals a convoluted series of events that happened during the timeskip. Long story short, stadium be wrecked, and won't be fixed for another week.
  • Chrysalis is pissed.
  • The wonderbolts are doing better, but sadly no thanks to Dash.
  • Glimmer and Haymaker are looking after Screwloose.
  • Everyone goes to see Chrysalis fix Sunset
  • She and Cadence go in alone, tells everyone to stay out of room. They pass the time by asking about Shiny's sex life.
  • Chrysalis goes into Sunset's mind and finds a barrier. Inside her mind, Sunset has become a twisted mix of herself and Variolus due to the fusion.
  • She thinks she can keep Chrysalis out, and declares she's going to give the whole world all of the changeling's secrets and reveal how to fight them and kill them.
  • So, Chrysalis gets a charge from Cadence and brute forces her way in.
  • Sunset tries to fight her, but it doesn't work.
  • Chrysalis thinks it's Variolus in control, and that Sunset is being consumed, not the other way around.
  • Chrysalis does magical brain surgery to remove all of the parts of Variolus in Sunset's brain.
  • Comes out, has an orb now containing all of Variolus's memories, and Sunset has had her brain scrubbed clean of all the magical techniques she learned under Variolus.
  • According to Chrysalis, anyone who holds the orb will know what Variolus knew, but when you let go of it it all leaves with it, to prevent Variolus's mind from leaving a 'surprise' behind when you touch it.
  • Cadence and Chrysalis learn of the thing keeping Sunset alive, and that she has no heartbeat.. or heart.
  • Sunset starts to talk, damning the changelings, and Cadence thinks she's talking about Variolus.
  • Chrysalis figures out Variolus knew not only the Titan magic, but also that the Hivemind is real, and she might be able to access it now. She goes a liiiiitttle power mad, and Cadence is worried.
  • She should have been more worried about Sunset, who drains her dry.
  • This makes Chrysalis very... very mad.
  • The two begin to battle, and Chrysalis won't let the orb go. As the fight grows on, Chrysalis becomes more savage, more cruel, due to the orb she holds and won't let go of.
  • It goes back and forth, sometimes they are equal, sometimes one is utterly dominating the other, sometimes they switch
  • But eventually, after being drained by Sunset and then getting that back by turning Sunset into a giant chew toy, the two are separated, but Chrysalis reveals she has one last trick!
  • THE POWER OF LOVE!
  • ...I said, THE POWER OF LOVE!
  • ...POWER OF GODDAMN- There we go.
  • Shining punches her right in the face, and embeds her in the wall. Everyone else rushesin soon after.
  • Chrysalis is... surprisingly relaxed despite the fact her horntip got shot off in the fight. Why is that?
  • Might have something to do with the orb being held by... Applejack.
  • Uh oh.

Thread 83 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP PUNCHES AND SPEECHES EDITION!
  • Applejack has the orb of Variolus in her hooves, showing her all the secrets of the changeling races! Including how they ascend!
  • Be it from Variolus's influence or her own anger at what she learns, she becomes hostile, screaming that Chrysalis is a murderer and bucking her in the face when Chrysalis tries to take the orb.... she does not take this well.
  • A brawl breaks out! The others try to stop them, but are conflicted as to whom, exactly, they need to stop, and if indeed AJ is being controlled or just learned something that means they should be helping her beat her head in.
  • The orb grants Applejack not only changeling powers, but also the knowledge of any powers used by Sunset while Variolus was with her.
  • Which means that she can now teleport and throw fireballs... everyone is a bit confused.
  • Spike picks a side, Applejack's of course, when he prevents her from getting the orb.
  • 42 also picks a side when she beats Spike into the floor.
  • Rarity responds to this with jumpkicks.
  • Sombra, who was beneath them when Spike came in through his ceiling, takes one look at the chaos, makes a halfhearted effort to help before tearing off.
  • Twilight and Dash notice AJ being smarter than she should. Dash still wants to help AJ, Twilight ices her to the floor.
  • Fluttershy can't help because chaos.
  • Pinkie just isn't getting hit.
  • Celestia tries to step in and gets wife-tossed into Chrysalis.
  • Drained and hurt, Chrysalis can't do much as AJ starts beating the crap out of her.
  • Finally, Shining Armor steps in between the two, and demands AJ stops.
  • "Or what."
  • He tells her or what. Which is he'll hit her.
  • Possessed by the orb, she mocks him, calling him pathetic, pointing out she'd never let whatChrysalis did to him slide if it was her.
  • He says he doesn't care, has moved past it, and is done with it.
  • So, she hits him.
  • He responds by turning her into one of those bopper-clown things.
  • She gets up and prepares to beat him
  • Chrysalis asks for help, but 42 and Rarity are being tangled up in vines made of hamsters.
  • Goddamn it Fluttershy
  • Celestia tries talking her down, it doesn't work, so Celestia is forced to bodyslam her. Like a boss.
  • This does not stop her. She gets back up and starts ranting to Celestia for trusting brain-eating bug monsters, and asks if Celestia really isn't worried about them. She says no, this blinds Applejack with rage.
  • While she's ranting, a certain someone tries to grab the orb... and is spotted.
  • "Snickerdoodles."
  • Pinkie gets punched in the face, and she leaps up to finish her off with a punch, only to have Chrysalis get in the way in the last second.
  • She stops, and realizes that orb is probably making her a little crazy, and that Chrysalis should probably take that right now.
  • She reaches out to give it to her-
  • NOPE! SUNSET!... Who everyone forgot about.
  • She's panicking a little bit as everyone is bearing down on her, getting ready to utterly ruin her for causing all this bullshit. That's when they learn what the orb is and that Sunset's heart is a rock.
  • Shining Armor is especially pissed due to what she did to Caddy, demanding she surrender now or else he will beat her within an inch of her life, and if she tries to escape his guards have orders to shoot to kill.
  • But she won't, because she's afraid that he'll give the orb to Chrysalis, which he totally would. She tries to explain her case, that she just wanted protection from changelings, and that's why she did all of this, which was to learn about them to better everyone, not just them.
  • She pleads with them that changeling queens cannot be trusted, that they will lie to you and use you and manipulate you. She has seen Variolus and what she and the other Queens are capable of. She then explains what happened in her mind. Being taken over, having to watch, being helpless, all that.
  • Shining Armor clams down immensely with this, stating he understands what it's like to have yourself taken over, to be a puppet, but she was letting her fear of Changelings decide everything, and damning the consequences.
  • He explains that, regardless of what has happened, he trusts Chrysalis, and likes her. Sunset doesn't understand.
  • Applejack tries talking to her, explaining she understands her fears, but that she couldn't let it control her like it did. Sometimes secrets aren't meant to be used as weapons, but because they're just not ready to be shared.
  • She admits her own failings to teach or to help her, and that they've both failed.
  • Finally, she asks to give up the orb.
  • Reluctantly, Sunset does.
  • ...But thankfully nobody is stupid enough to touch it, and it gets sealed up six ways from sunday beneath Canterlot, with only Chrysalis and Celestia able to access it. And Celestia only because she called out Chrysalis on being a hypocrite of the thing.
  • And it makes a scary eye when activated because Chrysalis is secretly a four year old inside.
  • Applejack asks what ShiningArmor is going to do, he needs to think about it, so he takes thestill unconscious Cadence out with him.
  • So, Twilight starts experimenting on Sunset while they wait. Many a question is asked and answered.
  • Everyone finds out about what the stone is, how it was made and what the purpose is... and that it might contain Chaos Magic, which could only mean one thing....
  • Also, Mane-iac is sad she missed the brawl.
  • And Dash does paperwork to classical music.
  • And Rarity inadvertently sets off a gift-war.
  • 18 spots SA/Caddy, freaks out, learns she was drained of love, 18 kisses Cadence to restore her love while disguised as Cadence, Shining Armor feels funny things.
  • Spike starts a secret santa thing with the gunclub.
  • Two wants to grab the ball, is denied. Musings of "Titan Two" are had."
  • SA beings Cadence and 18 up to speed on what happened, and asks Cadence what she wants done.
  • She doesn't know.
  • Both SA and 18 point out the nuances of the situation.
  • She doesn't know.
  • SA finally just asks her if she wants her to pay for hurting her like that.
  • ...She doesn't know.
  • She says that Shining Armor can handle it and leaves.
  • Alone, 18 and SA talk about it, with 18 giving her own opinion when asked by saying she would lock up Sunset forever, and only let her out to polish the Empire by hoof. But she admits she's biased, and will support what Shining Armor says. She leaves.
  • Shining Armor, alone, tries to come to grips with the situation, warring with himself between being a prince who must look strong, a soldier who must look just, and his own personal anger that Sunset dared to hurt Cadence when she was trying to help.
  • Enter Celestia, who talks with him about it, but tries to only listen because she feels she's failed enough with this one.
  • Shining Armor debates with her, explains his problems, and even cheers her up when she gets down. Heartmelting as that is, at last, he comes to a decision. He's not going to look at this like a prince or Soldier, but Shining Armor. Emboldened, he leaves.
  • Behind him, Celestia realizes she might be getting another shot with Sunset, and is going to make it count.
  • 42 meets up with Cadence, who urges her to talk to Spike.
  • Snake-eyes is pretending to be someone else as a janitor.
  • Discord thinks he got away with it, Faustmom is PISSED
  • Chrysalis and AJ talk again, with AJ confronting her about that 'murderer' thing. It looks like it's going to end with them being angry at each other again, until... Chrysalis asks about AJ's dad.
  • She has nothing but praises for him, obviously, and asks Chrysalis about hers.
  • Her one interaction with him when she was four is... less than sunny. And AJ manages to read between the lines on that one and puts it together.
  • ...Then they get into a 'which mom is better' fight, before leaving on good terms.
  • FINALLY! At the end Sunset is being tried.
  • Long, LONG and very inspirational speech debating all points is had, but short of it is that Sunset is punished like Twilight was, being banned from engaging in Changeling magic, is confined to Empire and Canterlot and must work to better the Empire, Equestria and the world. She is not a prisoner, and she is given a chance to prove herself again, like Twilight was.
  • Joy is had.
  • Something something love.
  • Party breaks out.
  • Applejack and Sunset promise to get it right this time.
  • Everyone gets cake.

Thread 84 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, HOLIDAYS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FUN EDITION!
  • Everyone gathers around Sunset in the wake of her freedom, and one by one they give their own decrees. Twilight tasks her with a journal and checkups. In addition, certain restrictions on magic are placed, but they are very light.
  • Applejack tells her to write her letters to keep her informed, and that she will be taking magic lessons from Sunset.
  • Celestia orders her to come see her once a week and converse with her for at least an hour, and that she believes in her.
  • Finally, Sunset realizes how lucky she is, and that she hurt Cadence. Unknown to all, she wants to make it up to her.
  • With that, Sunset is 'free', in a sense.
  • With that, Hearth's Warming is upon us!
  • 41 and SP have a talk where SP reveals he's uncomfortable with the fact Changelings can just read minds. 41 brushes it off to go have fun.
  • SA and Cadence question is they should celebrate Hearth's Warming considering they don't live where anyone else would. Cadence insists they do because presents.
  • Luna, 29, MM and Zecora are playing board games, Luna decides to pull out the Mahjong. It uh... turns out MM plays. And is rather intense about it. We never get to see the game.
  • Which is a pity, because it turns out Luna is rather good at it, which she shows when she does trade negotiations via overly-intense Mahjong game.
  • Spitfire is investigating how Cadence can be in so many places every day but still do all the kingdom managing, timing how long she spends out on the town. While looking it over, she is scared off by a voice. Said voice picks up the paper and it turns out it was none other than... Sunset Shimmer.
  • She hasn't made a move on this new information yet.
  • Two is angry at Sunset for hurting not-mom mom and pelting her with hard marchmalleys. Applejack asks if she's apologized yet, and after realizing she hasn't she does apologize as best she can, calming 2 down and leading to instant forgiveness and marchmalleys.
  • The nightguard are following 56 to see if he's a viable candidate, and noticing that despite him trying not to touch the booty, the booty finds him.
  • Chitania's scar is worse than expected. More than just a mark, it didn't heal right and thus anytime she attempts to go into Titan mode she is overcome by pain. It would be a simple procedure to get it surgically removed, but she doesn't know any surgeon she would trust with her heart exposed, and thus she has to suffer with it until she can figure something out.
  • Chrysalis is angry because Twilight is too swamped to help her examine the orb, and she promised she wouldn't until Twilight was around. But between helping to restore Sunset, her OnO project and holiday shopping, there's just no time. It's here she reveals she gave Celestia access to it too. Twilight orders her to relax and enjoy the holidays.
  • Before she leaves, she runs into the possessed Primrose, and it's only some logic from Twilight that prevents her from blowing it up.
  • It turns out the changelings have been hiding out in the ballroom because they're afraid Chrysalis is mad at them after one of them punched Quicksilver in the face and had to spend a couple days in jail. They've been doing their best to wait it out, so Chrysalis doesnt' care.
  • After she's gone, they decide to send out a 'scout' by tying a rope around him. Said scout is the guy who did the punching, 38. He protests, but is gone out with the knowledge they will pull him back if they need to.
  • His rope gets cut off by the door. Whoops.
  • But for the most part, everyone is pleasant. Be it from guards who just wish to be nice or a couple chefs who got a light nudge from Applejack, he finds it's not all bad, even if he remains unsure.
  • Pinkie accelerates the Gift-Arms-Race, and Rarity rises to the challenge.
  • Fluttershy is stuck in line in the holiday rush, Chrysalis decides to be a good friend and waits with her.
  • Applejack, Sunset and Rarity work at a soup kitchen to help Sunset's public image and to bring some attention to the less fortunate. Rarity enjoys making them look good while they work.
  • 18 and Celestia have a discussion about things with Shining, turns out things are moving forwards now and Celestia, after the talk, is okay with it and wishes her well.
  • The gryphon royals plus Ignus and Isabelle get together to decide what to do, and come to the conclusion they need to split up to sway the votes.
  • Applejack finds Jetset and has a talk with him where he reveals he doesn't care if she's perfect, he protects her because he believes in her. Then he declares he needs to get stronger if he is to do so, but will need to find a certain 'someone' to pull it off.
  • In Everfree, Seven has been training for a whole month, but despite this is not any physically stronger than he was when he started. He realizes his limitation as a Changeling is that he is entirely dependent on Love in order to be strong, and it doesn't matter how hard he works besides it because he'll always only be as strong as the amount of love he has.
  • Some of the new guards try to cheer up the changelings. It backfires.
  • Applejack confronts Screwloose, and lays down the law.
  • Movie Night at the Crystal Empire! With a very special showing... Shining Armor's grand "Epic" movie... which he made in his edgy teenager phase.
  • Many forced ice puns, bad special effects and cringey story follows.
  • As does many, many laughs.
  • Two and Maney think it's cool.
  • Haymaker and Batmom shoot barbs at each other.
  • 29 has been feeding 32 love, and continues to do so to this day. While 32 makes a joke out of it, it's revealed that 32 is also doing favors for 29 at the same time.
  • Despite his best efforts to make it sound sexual, Actarius remains completely un-phased or lead astray by any of it, seeing through it with a blunt naivety, which angers 32, and makes 29 laugh.
  • Applejack visits Shiny. Somehow ends up with a mousetrap on her ass.
  • DT tries to force Spike to cut 42 some slack after she punched him into the floor, it doesn't work.
  • While walking off, she boards an elevator with Trixie and Chrysalis... goes about as well as you'd expect.
  • Derpy delivers a package to Discord. He skimps her on the tip.
  • Don't feel bad, it was a bomb.
  • Pommel,after some freaking out with Daw, finally tells Celestia he's sorry for sleeping in. She forgives him and gives a speech where she details how lackluster her old guard used to be, how good it was he kept trying, and that more than anything they need a leader right now.
  • Pommel has a talk with the changeling wandering around, 38, where he points out the mutual hate on both sides is only making things worse, drawing a parallel to the Hearth's Warming Eve story, where their fighting almost wiped out everyone.
  • Chrysalis and Mane-iac love the holidays. Funny comic time is pointed out.
  • Spike and 42 finally talk, with Spike bitter she chose Chrysalis over him and that she remains loyal to her. They start to think that they can't be friends anymore, since 42 will not trust him with anything and he feels like she won't believe him if it comes down to it, so out of desperation 42 does reveal a secret.
  • That she's in love with Cadence.
  • Spike decides to 'help her out', though what that means is still unknown. Because hey..."What are friends for?"
  • Cadence overspends on gifts.
  • Dash forgot about Hearth's Warming shopping.
  • Watchdog is having fun tossing Vekir, Siegfried less so watching Anton... and even less so when Anton joins in the tossing.
  • Arana gives a Hearth's Warming gift to Chitania. Chitania returns the favor with tales of Arana's mother, particularly how she met her father.
  • Sunset is feeling bitter that she lost all that information about Changelings, and feels it unfair that the info is being kept from her. Applejack arrives shortly and the two have a heart to heart, with Applejack explaining that her biggest problem is her impulsiveness and inability to see things as anything other than a scientist, using a dying apple tree sapling to show her point.
  • At the end of it, she tasks Sunset with the apple tree sapling to give her some perspective, and leaves her hopeful that she can be restored to normal.
  • Chrysalis looks on at the Orb, and begins to think of all the possibilities it can hold. In particular, if it could be used to create more Queens from her Hive.
  • More Queens... all under her.
  • Because that won't end horribly.

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, HEARTHS AND HEARTS GETTING WARMED EDITION!
  • "IT'S HEARTH'S WAAAARRRMMIIIINNNNNN!"
  • All around ponies and changelings are celebrating, having fun and spending time with their loved ones, from the CE's crew enjoying Shiny's parents visiting in between having a heart attack when Twilight gives Two a hoverbike to Rarity giving Sweetie something to burn down her parents house to Twenty Nine and crew bonding simply in Zecora's hut to Pennydrop lavishing in her own increased wealth.
  • It's a nice day.
  • Except for one house.
  • Applejack, Applebloom and Big Mac descend the stairs and prepare to open their gifts, but there's one problem.
  • Granny Smith is missing!
  • As it turns out, last night Granny got ran over by a... something
  • So when she wakes up, she's not taking this lying down, and sets out to find whatever it was that ran her over!
  • Applejack the others find the tracks and follow them to investigate!
  • Meanwhile, Pinkie has hired the changelings to pretend to be her and spread holiday cheer in her place to any who are not spending time with their families.
  • Spike goes over to Applejack's house to try to give her a gift, but sees her gone and none of the presents open, which means only one thing.
  • Getting his gun, it's on!
  • After some following, he stumbles across Fluttershy's cabin while monologuing to himself. Needless to say, they join forces.
  • Also, shortly after, he calls Rarity, who while desperate to escape her families home also comes over to be with the pair.
  • Also, unknown to her before this moment, Sweetie Belle had dyed her hair white, and Rarity is now completely invisible in the snow.
  • Granny, meanwhile, is either making squirrels vomit with her stories or ticking off strangely intelligent cragodiles.
  • Dash comes across Soarin and Fleetfoot in WB headquarters, everyone else is off on vacation, but they're there for... reasons. She gives them a gift and they feel bad about it for a bit.
  • She also comes across Lightning Dust in her office, and seems really oblivious before she heads off to go spend time with the others.
  • JJ and Actarius meet his parents for Hearth's Warming. Goes about as well as can be expected
  • 56 gets the Delux Chitanita toy with memory foam plot, curses his cousin for tempting him again, even though he begged for it for months, and it cost a small fourtune
  • DT gives her Secret Gifter gift to 77. It's a Ballistic Sniper Knife with a DT seal of approval for safety. 42's gift were rocket power hooves which made her fly uncontrollably though a wall.
  • Twilight, getting away from the CE for a moment, stumbles across Pommel who tells her where Spike went.
  • He's also wearing a ribbon... guess where.
  • She goes off to find Spike every bit to get away from that.
  • Chrysalis and Celestia have a talk about Applejack and second chances. Celestia also finds out Chrysalis was rather 'new' when she got with Shiny back at the wedding, so to say.
  • Maud is STILL in the Empire, tasting the crystal.
  • 29 delivers a letter to Luna from 56, it's adorable.
  • Everyone is either panicking or enjoying Two's hoverbike antics.
  • 29 and crew get into a snowball fight.
  • Pinkie is off to deliver gifts to her friends, how you ask?
  • By putting all the gifts in a sled and having it pulled by changelings.
  • ...And she's wearing a red suit, because Pinkie is as subtle as an exploding middle finger.
  • Primrose tries to explain Hearth's Warming to Brahmos, Red and Cordy.
  • Red remembers the Wendigos fondly...
  • 10 gives BBB a gift, he feels bad he didn't get her one, she declares he was gift enough.
  • CHITANIA IN A CANDY CANE HAT... that is all.
  • Granny Smith finally finds the rascals that ran her over!... And then tears off running.

  • "WENDIGOS!? HOW!? HOOWW!?"
  • Thus a battle begins! Or, more specifically, Applejack and family getting beat to bruises by really violent wendigos.
  • They realize they should just be able to be nice to each other and fix it...doesn't work. Really, really doesn't work.
  • But that's okay, because Spike, Fluttershy and Rarity join the fray!
  • And they too all get beat to hell, except Fluttershy of course, who is unhurt as they create twisters and the like to batter them.
  • But out of nowhere, more help arrives! DASH is on the scene, and she makes a giant twister to suck them up and toss them away! The day is saved!
  • For about four seconds, then she notices they made a bigger one, and theirs hurts a lot more.
  • But that's okay, because TWILIGHT is on the scene, she'll save everyone!
  • ...She doesn't!
  • The wedigos seem to open the sky and pour down the snow and frost to painful levels, trying to hold the heroes down. But they can't keep Applejack from getting to her family to cover them.
  • Even with that, they declare she needs to stop, and go help the others, that she doesn't need to protect them all the time.
  • Reluctantly, VERY reluctantly, she says okay.
  • And THEN all four get grabbed out of the waterfall of snow and ice, and onto, of all things, a sled.
  • A sled that is tearing through that icy stuff thanks to the fireball on the front of it.
  • The LIVING fireball.
  • It's 55, come on.

The go up to the top, fire off some magicy science via Twilight's present to be to make them whole, and one great big Apple Family Apple Buck happens! The Wendigos are defeated, the day is saved, and everything is a-okay!
  • ...And then everyone puts together that this was probably Discord, and they get mad.
  • But they're going to deal with that later! For now, Arana FINALLY got her big butt off the button holding the portal closed and the CE crew from joining in, and now it's time for some Hearth Warming Apple Home Party!
  • Cadence is weighing her options for her 'practice' but her contemplative stare keep sets both 18 and Celestia off into a confession panic, so they're out. The hunt goes on!
  • Sunset feels very alone and lies in herroom, telling Dollestia there's no point going out in the vain hope of enjoying the festivities, since she's...well, medically dead and very unliked around town
  • Pinkie brings out her gifts and wows the crowd, but a challenger approaches!
  • A challenger who made her little sister pull the massive cart from one side of Ponyville to the other, because Rarity can be vindictive sometimes.
  • But no matter, because after several stops, she hands out her gifts, and even Pinkie concedes she's got the best ones this go round!
  • But it's not over yet, there's still one individual who needs to hand out her own gift.
  • Chrysalis gives that gift she promised Two she would give to AJ.
  • It's a strange, marble-sized green ball.
  • According to Chrysalis, it lets her copy one memory to it, just like a small-scale version of the Variolus Orb. Only this one will project too.
  • At first, Applejack is very suspicious and reluctant, which offends Chrysalis enough she just stomps off. Still, Applejack admits there's a possibility here.
  • So, she uses it, gives it one of her memories, and...
  • Everyone gets to watch Applebloom's very first Hearth's Warming.
  • And Applebloom gets to really see, and hear, her parents for the very first time.
  • It's a time for looking back, but more than that, a time for new beginnings.
  • And she's going to make the most of it this time.

Thread 87 Edit

  • SA Thinks what Chrysalis did for AJ is nice.
  • Cadence considers Chrysalis and others for her practice thing, decides against it.
  • Applejack noticed Sunset wasn't with the CE crew, learns from Applejack she just hid in her room.

  • Luna begins to have fun pranking her students.
  • Pinkie laments she didn't win the gift war.
  • 32 continues to hand out his cursed cards, each one more insulting than the last. The only one spared is 2.
  • Spitfire blows off Dash when she tries to talk to her.
  • Ignus, Sigfried, Watchdog, Vekir and Anton go off on their political trip.
  • Chitania hates that there is snow. Gets rid of it the only way she knows how.
  • Blueblood spends Hearth's Warming with Arana, PJ and Haymaker.
  • 77 and 88 come across Screwloose, who takes an interest in the blindling.

  • 18 is still bitter at Sunset.
  • Celestia and SA decide to go after Luna.
  • Sweetie Belle is bad at standup.
  • Cloudchaser decides to file a complaint about the WB's, but when she confronts Fleetfoot she is quickly made aware there is nobody to file a complaint about Dash TO, as all of them are either lower on the totem pole or are her best friends/owe her one and thus she gives up.
  • This is not the first time Fleetfoot has had to do this.
  • Chrysalis looks creepy for a second, so AJ harasses her with a squirtbottle. Thus begins a squirt fight that will be remembered for all of time.

  • AJ is amused that Luna is a teacher.
  • DT swims in her presents, while SS makes bad puns.
  • Shining and Big Mac have nothing in common.
  • After several more failures, Rarity and Spike ready to call it quits, but no need. Cadence's stares of judgement does nothing to 42, and she realizes she's perfect for this so rushes off to go ask Shiny.
  • Rarity considers this a win.
  • While talking to Shiny about it, she inadvertently reveals the reason she's not just going to 18 is that her biggest fear is that she's not living up to her Princess of Love title, and wants to experience what's coming next without fear of ruining anything for Shiny or her. After a lengthy talk, Shining eventually decides if this is what she needs to feel back in her groove, he'll go with it.
  • Witnessing his repeated failures, Shining offers to take Rarity to task if Spike needs him to.
  • But not Applejack. Sunset reveals to Spitfire what she found, but Spitfire immediately backs off and decides the whole thing was stupid, not wanting to strain her relationship with anyone else over there. She advises Sunset to do the same.
  • It's disheartening, but she realizes she'll have to go talk to Applejack about it.
  • Sombra gives Shining Armor a Dreadnought
  • 32 discovers the notes are actually cursed and goes off to search for the culprit.
  • When Discord reveals it was him despite 32 wishing really really hard it wasn't, 32 just gives up and decides to go home, which makes Discord angry as he wanted 32 to challenge him or complain about him.
  • Chrysalis is a shrewd businessmare.
  • Rainbow Dash is apparently loaded.
  • Celestia reveals she didn't buy any gifts on Luna's behalf, so she has to hand out dream vouchers.
  • Twilight discovers she can make a jacob ladder with her and Rarity's horn. The world is not ready.
  • Chrysalis seems unimpressed with the party, but says they need to invite everyone to their place next year.
  • Applejack and Granny Smith think about how their 'family' has grown.
  • SA and crew decide to leave, but not before he points out to Applejack that her accepting that gift meant a lot to Chrysalis, even if she doesn't show it.
  • Back at the Empire, Shining Armor finally gives his gifts to the other mares...
  • POLE DANCING!
  • Chrysalis, Cadence, 18, Celestia and 42 have a ball.
  • Twilight walks in, is horrified... can't seem to leave.
  • Everyone else leaves soon after, everyone except Applejack and... Fluttershy.
  • Time to get some answers.
  • They call Discord, and chew him out for what he's been doing.
  • He bites back, obviously feeling neglected, but having a harder time justifying it when they reveal he had gifts and an apple fritter waiting for him here, he just didn't show up.
  • He gets into how forgotten he's felt here recently, due to the fact he can't last very long around Fluttershy.
  • When Applejack tries to lecture him, he vanishes, leaving behind some gifts, and goes up to the moon to watch the planet below.
  • He took the apple fritters with him.
  • And, he realizes...
  • "I may have gone a bit overboard."
  • Twilight returns to Canterlot to a waiting Spike, and after shaking off her previous problems decides...
  • O N O MOTHERFUCKERS!

Thread 88 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, A MAGICAL ADVENTURE FOR YOU EDITION!
  • Twilight, while cackling like a lunatic because of course she does, sends out the call, and all of the various ponies and other such species begin their gathering process!
  • First up, breakfast with the CE crew!
  • Chrysalis, sadly, cannot see why kids love Crunchy Cinnamon Toast.
  • Dash leaves the Wonderbolts all alone, thinking she's just giving them another day off post Hearth's Warming. Enraged by her actions, Soarin' and Fleetfoot begin to plot.
  • This plot involves Fleetfoot annoying Pommel until he chases her with a butterfly net, and Soarin' turning on the sprinklers over the changelings heads and ticking them off until they chase him.
  • The two plots intertwine when said changelings run over Pommel in their blind rage. This is only the beginning...
  • Meanwhile, Daw does not know what a condom is. So... that's probably going to end well.
  • 77 and 88 find 32 passed out and smelling of hangover, so they decide to help him get cleaned up.
  • Haymaker is annoyed his boss is chasing Fleetfoot instead of training them.
  • Twilight and Celestia assure Applejack nothing is going to go wrong while they're in the simulator... so of course it is.
  • Shining drops off Two with his parents. Oh, and Sombra too, but he forgot to mention that to them. His father is not appreciative.
  • At the Sparkle house, Sombra slinks down into the basement with Two in tow, discovering Shining Armor's old stash of figures from the old days. Also a magazine, but we'll never know what was inside of it, because of the fire.
  • Chrysalis discovers that Succubus is no longer a class, and is actually a race now. More specifically, an NPC enemy race. An NPC enemy race that, if picked, has some huge handicaps. And is always evil. And also gives bonuses if you kill them.
  • In short, the creatures with her powerset and sort of her appearance got redone to be snarling, evil monsters you're supposed to kill.
  • She is not happy, but hatches her own plan.
  • Primrose goes reading at Brahmos's suggestions.
  • DT accidentally gets drunk on some leftover eggnog.
  • Screwloose wonders if she can fix 88's eyesight.
  • Spitfire, back at the Empire, takes command of the airforce to train them better.
  • As they're gathering, Twilight reveals a very important fact. She invited someone else to come along, none other than Poindexter! Who is still on iffy terms with Shining, but nevermind. Now they're perfectly symmetrical, seven on Twilight's side, seven on the CE side!
  • One problem, that means there's nobody left to DM.
  • So, Celly has a suggestion. Her sister!
  • Luna, after some convincing, agrees.
  • With their teacher gone, 29 and crew got into the strong stuff, and yet again wake up with very little recollection to where they have been.
  • Long story short, Luna is letting the power go to her head again as she takes control. With that out of the way, it's merely time to gather everyone together and get ready for an adventure! They all go in, turning the thing on and transforming into their characters!
  • And then promptly vanishing. Because Twilight wanted it to be a surprise when they all met up. All of them are sent to different parts of the world, and have their own adventures.
  • Spike, a Knight class fighter, gets dropped in the middle of a fuzzy thing nest much to his irritation. Then he discovers, after killing them all, that those fuzzy things were babies, and that Luna had intended for him to befriend them and go on an adventure, and this kind of messed up her whole plan.
  • Long story short, after a few more scenarios, a lot of anger from Luna and no less than three species genocided, Spike is now wearing blooddrinker armor and wielding a cursed sword, no matter how much he protests.
  • Shining Armor, a Paladin, initially lands in a land of fairy princesses. Pink fair princesses. Who look like ponies... and his wife, coincidentally. After he escapes from that throwback to DnD origins, he is attacked by harpies, but is saved by the whip of a succubus!
  • More specifically, a tall, WHITE, succubus.
  • Celestia is trying out a new race.
  • Speaking of, someone else is also trying out a new race!... Sort of.
  • Chrysalis, now an Angel, wipes out the Harpies in one blow. After wards, she reveals that she's an angel who is, due to following their works, SUCCUBUS class once again! Luna, on the other hand, reveals that this left her charisma score a mite... low.
  • As in, she couldn't talk, and had been following Shining for hours killing small animals to level up enough that she could speak.
  • Both mares muse about a little 'advanced seduction', but Luna is having none of that and makes it known with stampede of bladed rhinos.
  • 18, an enchantress class, gets spawned in a lich cave, and of course lich's are immune to enchanting...
  • Cadence, a Fairy with an unrevealed(but stupid) class, learns her prospects for survival are not great.
  • Poindexter, A rogue, is running circles around all of Luna's traps while she tries to monlouge at him.
  • 42, a solider class, is stuck in the middle of a slime pit. She uses her wits to outsmart one, but... there's a lot.
  • Dash, a pegasi warrior(?) is annoyed because Luna won't let her fly.
  • Pinkie, a bard, is enjoying being in a candy trap.
  • Rarity, and Ironshod(think old timey robots) Monk is enjoying her new kung fu.
  • Applejack and Twilight, however..
  • Luna decided to be 'helpful' in light of AJ's failing magical powers, so she... switched them.
  • Now AJ is a mage and Twi is a barbarian. Neither is working.
  • They start to meet up, Cadence with 42, Dash and 18 and later Pinkie and then AJ, Poindexter meets up with Rarity when the latter pretends to be a ghost to freak him out.
  • Oh, and AJ can make cider out of a couple sticks, a rock, a wheel and a single apple... do not ask, even though she was watching Luna doesn't get that one.
  • After a few more adventures, they all meet up in a town square, and Luna prepares to send them on the real adventure! Only, one problem... where's Fluttershy?
  • Oh, right there... turns out she was a peasant class pony the whole time, everyone just thought she was an NPC.
  • Well, with that done, TORNADOS FROM THE SKY!
  • Now the mission is set! Two lords, one of fire and one of ice, are threatening the land, so two teams are needed to stop them! CE crew and the Main Seven, off on their adventure!
  • One little snag. There was a... mixup.
  • Poindexter and Twilight are exactly where they should NOT be.
  • And thus, Luna loses her mind for a second.
  • Unaware to all, in her hidden room, Pennydrop notices that the game has begun, and is now hatching her own plan to get at Twilight's computer.
  • The real adventure, both inside and out, begins!

Thread 89 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, ADVENTURE HO EDITION!
  • The parties are now split up, and are having issues.
  • On the Main Six side, they are not happy with being stuck with Poindexter and vocalize it to a very hurtful degree.
  • Tensions begin to rise as each one wants to take the lead, but none of them end up doing so. As a result of lack of leadership, they mostly just destroy stuff.... a lot of stuff... so much stuff.
  • So much stuff...
  • Back with the CE crew, things are going smoother... except for Shiny shaking his ass where Twilight can see, that was a problem.
  • Celestia, Chrysalis and 18 try to get them away from each other long enough they can tease Shiny, to no effect.
  • That aside, each one is fantastically capable, which leaves Twilight feeling like she doesn’t matter much because she can’t take the lead.
  • With that said, they progress rapidly and quickly, far quicker than the other side. They go after the ice lord, while the main six crew choose the fire one.
  • As a result of one side fighting and the other being overly confrontational, Luna’s plans rapidly fall apart and she finds herself in despair. But it’s not over yet…
  • On the Wonderbolt Side, Pommel gets up after the trampling, and decides he’s done playing. He stumbles across Bulk, and realizing Bulk is a WB he enlists his help to catch Fleetfoot
  • While Soarin is still being chased, a wonderbolt mare(Unknown if it was Fleetfoot) tells the guard their boss got trampled, and they charge off to go fight.
  • Meanwhile, Gilda slaps the Peacetrotters in the face and eggs them on to all charge her.
  • Long story short, the three rampaging crowds collide while the WB's and Pommel look on.
  • And then there is punches.
  • ...And then there is threats of lasers.
  • And then there is almost lasers and Pommel being forced to shove everyone to fire off into nothingness.
  • And then that nothingness turns out to not contain nothingness.
  • It contains Chitania.
  • Who is PISSED
  • Thus begins a desperate battle with the PT's, Guards and Lings fighting against a very, very angry Titan. It goes as well as expected.
  • Or, as Fleetfoot put it, 'better than expected'.
  • Pommel, seeing his crew and others in danger, joins with Daw and snaps into action with good old fashioned adventure plans!
  • They do not work. They do not work a lot.
  • But on the positive side, a changeling and guard pair have discovered a passion for annoucerwork. So... that's something. Fuzzy and the Buzz have begun!
  • Meanwhile, thanks to the destruction, Pennydrop has found her way into Twilight’s mainframe and begins downloading the stuff on her computer. One problem, if Twilight notices she’s fucked. So she peers in to make sure Twilight can’t see what she’s doing, and spots Luna in despair. A mistake on her part leads to her being heard, so she panics and makes Luna think she’s a computer program.
  • Then she learns what Luna is doing.
  • Realizing the game is almost over and she needs to stall, Pennydrop decides to help.
  • We learn that, underneath her terrible exterior, Pennydrop is a hardcore OnO fan, complete with fake crown and old memorabilia.
  • She and Luna join forces and proceed to torment both sides, even flipping around what the CE crew thought would be the final battle and instead gets them lost in an ‘endless’ maze.
  • With that, Applejack’s crew begin to eventually get it together and continue on.
  • MEANWHILE, Mayor Mare and 29 actually do work!?
  • 32 gathers up 77 and 88, and after hiring someone to clean up his office he sets out to ponyville with them do to… something regarding him and Cheerilee
  • Speaking of, Actarius discovers said office and… well, he is probably still screaming.
  • On orders from 18, Potatojack sets out to find 7, discovering him clear out and alone in Everfree forest, doing… something with a bunch of animals in cages. The one she sees is a Manticore, which appears near death.
  • Seven reveals he’s working on ways to get love outside of ponies, so they aren’t so dependent on them.
  • After beating him around for a little bit to reveal he’s low on love and chiding him for missing Hearth’s Warming, PJ reveals there’s no way to really get enough from animals. He says he’s made progress, she says she can’t see it.
  • ”Looking in wrong direction.”
  • What follows is PJ getting the snot beat out of her by the very much not near-death Manticore before being beaten into unconsciousness. Before she passes out, she sees that indeed said manticore was talking, and has green eyes.
  • She only hears one more thing before the world goes black.
  • ”Her name is Buttercup.”
  • When she wakes up in a potato field later, she can’t remember a thing, and believes she just got drunk and blasted off a couple rounds before crashing, which is why she’s out of love and hurts like hell.
  • Jetset watches the whole exchange, but does not intervene. He had originally been looking to find 7 so they could help each other get better, but decides against it, and that he will get stronger on his own.
  • Ignusand Siegfried arrive at their location, a land of partying and low standards… so he orders Watchdog to carry Vekir and Anton and for the love of god don’t let them touch anything.
  • Sombra sets up all “Safe for Two” figures and he and two begin their own game! What adventures will they have? Find out!... After he fixes the table!
  • 32, 77, and 88 made it to Cheerilee's, briefly ran into the...thing called Mr. Foalington from Partyland and set the stage for what's about to go down.
  • It's a big going down.

Thread 90 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, YOU GET AN ARMY! AND YOU GET AN ARMY! EVERYONE GETS AN ARMY YAAYYYYYYY EDITION!
  • In the OnO world, things are going... badly.
  • The CE crew are still lost in the endless maze, being attacked by all manner of creatures and not able to pick up armor thanks to 'Luna's' trick from last time.
  • Twilight, thanks to feeling useless and unable to help, unlocks the berserker rage against a slime monster, and is now very angry.
  • Shining Armor keeps asking meta questions, and Cadence keeps giving him plausible but horrifying answers.
  • Celestia's outfit is rapidly losing what little room it had.
  • Chrysalis, upon challenging Cadence, orders 42 to back her, but the soldier-ling responds 'no', and backs Cadence. Nobody is quite sure what to make of that yet.
  • Cadence is still looking for a chance to bring up the kiss thing to Forty Two.
  • 18 is just trying to out math that which cannot be mathed.
  • But, despite their setbacks, they eventually manage to get back up to the Ice Witch, causing a panic with Luna. Pennydrop, however, has a plan.
  • Long story short, she makes a big song and dance with the Ice Witch where the Witch reveals that it does not matter if she won or not, the battle would mean her foe the Fire Lord would defeat her even if they did not. So, in order to save her kingdom, she gives her power, her armies and her throne away...
  • To Cadence.
  • Who is DAMN sexy in her costume, to the point where Shining Armor might need a minute.
  • So, off they go to fight the firelord!
  • Concurrently with this is going on, AJ grows tired of being forced into situations where she has to use her magic and finds ways around them, until she is eventually guilt-tripped into it by Pennydrop.
  • Spike rapidly gets fed up with being hounded by PD and Luna, and declares they're going off the rails so to speak.
  • This... fails spectacularly within the first few minutes, and all Spike manages to do is more destruction. And Spike is now undead.
  • In a moment of desperation, Fluttershy somehow ends up party leader.
  • They also gain a tentacle ridden dragon named 'hats' as a pet... because.
  • Repeatedly, Spike tries to go off rails, but it never works.
  • Finally, they all reach the firelord, who is killed thanks to Fluttershy's batshit high charisma levels and said tentacle dragon.
  • He too passes on his power, over to....
  • Poindexter.
  • Who might be going just a liiiiittle crazy with power.
  • MEANWHILE, out in the real world!
  • 32, 88 and 77 visit Cheerilee, and after a heart to heart, 77 PROPOSES! YES! PROPOSES!
  • 29 learns that Ye isn't a word, and his life is shattered.
  • Sunset goes over to the Empire with the interest of getting to the bottom of this whole thing with Cadence, and after some persuading she get Spitfire to join her.
  • Jetset is trying to take his teleporting to the next level and make it about phasing through stuff, but can't manage before he's picked up.
  • 7 gets with a scientist working with Fawntaine's bio-research and gets notes for his still forming plan.
  • The Lunar Guard continue watching over 56 and reporting on him.
  • Screwloose senses something.
  • Sombra tries to fight the living figures with more living figures... yeah.
  • Things go awry, to put it shortly.
  • MEANWHILE! With the current Chitania-brawl, things are going poorly.
  • Several daring attacks by Pommel manage to do a jack load of nothing, and the Wonderbolts, outside of saving anyone from getting squashed, are unhelpful.
  • In desperation, Daw goes off to get help. She gets it, in the form of a giant hundred legged backup.
  • Centitrain is on the case! And after a larger than life battle... it doesn't go so good.
  • Long story short, Centitrain is going to need to sleep a couple bruises off.
  • Several more attacks and plan after plan of Pommel's is tried, but to no avail with any of it.
  • Finally, after getting punted through a wall one too many times, Pommel decides to try to trap her with that there army he has.
  • A plan it hatched, but for this one it's going to take more than just his army. His army, and the Changelings, are going to have to do the unthinkable and join forces if they want to win.
  • Reluctantly, thanks in part to many interactions during the beating, they do so.
  • The plan goes off, she's entangled by all sides and frozen by Peacetrotters, to everyone's surprise they hold her!... For exactly one second. But they DO hold her before her rage becomes unstoppable and she blasts them away and makes them hurt.
  • And then she strangles Pommel and is about to knock off his head.
  • But it is not the end! Two others come to save Pommels Pompoms, none other than Sweet Note and 13!
  • Then Chitania roars at them, and watching her daughter and friend be afraid of her again makes her, at last, stop.
  • They forgive her right away though, so it's all cool.
  • Then we learn what all this as about. Technically, thanks to Fleetfoot and Soarin', this was a TOTALLY SANCTIONED by Dash training exorcise. One that wasn't supposed to involve Chitania, obviously, and was being filmed by 10 the whole time.
  • Pommel gets really angry, Sweet Note wants to sue, Chitania is just happy her kid isn't afraid of her.
  • But that's not all. The guards and changelings are... getting along? Whaaa?
  • Fleetfoot and Soarin go off, sure that they've won...
  • Or have they?
  • In Dash's office, they're confronted by Lightning Dust, who reveals she knows all about their plan.
  • Specifically, that this was just about getting the public to turn on her, since none of the higher ups would. But she reveals she recorded their plan, and while they can't arrest her they have been conspiring to humiliate Dash, which is either fireable or Dash can punish them
  • She did this to prove loyalty to Dash, and now she's going to use this to become second in command
  • Fleetfoot and Soarin realize they've lost, and that they never stood a chance.
  • ...And nobody in the OnO world has any idea any of this went on.
  • Dun dun duuuun.

Thread 91 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, I LOVE THE SMELL OF WAR IN THE MORNING EDITION!
  • Pennydrop muses about it, and can't really figure out why she let the weak, powerless, big dreamer earth pony gain ultimate power... go figure.
  • Poindexter has now gone full supervillain, costume and all. Everyone's a little worried about him. Yet, strangely, their kill rate has dropped to zero...
  • After a talk, they decide to let him stay in charge.
  • On the other side, Cadence has gone mad with power. Being carried around on a giant golden slab, making Celestia and Chrysalis act like statues, dressing up Shining and 18 and 42 to be her personal dancers, that mess.
  • Oh, and she also makes the army fight for her amusement while marching towards the fire lord... that's a thing.
  • They don't have a choice about whether she's in charge or not.
  • MEANWHILE, outside, the figurines are still wreaking havoc. The changelings and guards are trying to destroy the little buggers, but it's not going well.
  • Actarius is getting his shit kicked in, but not going down.
  • Chitania gives no fucks and ain't helping.
  • Bluebloodbot gets really annoyed and goes full on EXTERMINATE
  • Coltsly, thanks to an idea from a disguised Snake Eyes, decides to hand out lightning bolt infusions.
  • Pommel finally gets on the scene and starts commanding.
  • And Sombra has had enough, leaving 2 in the care of Jugglejack while he personally goes off and disenchants these things.
  • In the Empire, Spitfire and Sunset stumble across Shining's Desk. Also, that it smells like ass.
  • Not pony ass.
  • ...Spitfire does not want to know, Sunset does not want to know how she knows.
  • Also, they don't learn the deal with 42, just a lot of wink-wink-nudge-nudge. That's confusing.
  • But back at the OnO session! The two armies meet, and... pretty much decide to get along, no reason to fight.
  • That is, until Poindexter makes fun of the fact it's CADENCE in charge of the army, Applejack joins in on pointing it out, and Spike drives the point home by saying CHRYSALIS would be a better choice.
  • Chrysalis starts laughing, but surprisingly not at Cadence. She starts jeering their side, pointing out how much better her side has been doing and then when they're at their most angry Forty Two seals the deal
  • "Don't be mad that Cadence is better than any of you at this."
  • Long story short, fighting breaks out.
  • Oh, and Twilight has been in a blind berserker rage this whole time, which is why she hasn't commented on the matter. She's unleashed, and all hell breaks loose.
  • Friends start fighting friends, Rarity is pretty much punchproof but very vulnerable to encanting,
  • Chrysalis's character(not the real her, to note) is discovered to be lactose intolerant when Spike sprays her with goat milk, Spike is punted by Chrysalis so far he impales Shining Armor by accident, and Applejack's attempts to stave off a berserker Twi only result in her covering herself in flowers, and unable to move.
  • But the real main attraction is Poindexter Vs Cadence! Fire Vs Ice! Boss power Vs Boss power! It... turns out to be a lot of childish trashtalk and nagging.
  • But Poindexter has a plan, it turns out! He was merely luring Cadence over Celestia and the now healed Shining Armor, and then he summons a giant spear!
  • Chrysalis and 18 show up on the scene, and he prepares to throw it. Instinctively, they all defend Shining because they assume Poindexter will aim for him.
  • Nope, turns out he was aiming for Cadence for REVENGE! To make Shiny watch the love of his life be hurt while he couldn't protect her.
  • ...orrr, turns out he had had an epiphany before he threw the spear, figured out why Mane-Iac was never really mad or held a grudge, finally fully embraced the real supervillain nature and decided to change spear at the last second, so it's just a spell that can be broken by love's kiss.
  • Shining Armor, remembering the post-Hearth-Warming Party talk with Cadence, decides to use this to his advantage, gives reasons he and everyone else can't kiss her, and then gives that job to...
  • Forty Two! Who is about to blow a gasket at the thought.
  • But still, she does it, and while she does Chrysalis is feeling a little... jealous? She wishes it was her, is how she puts it.
  • Forty Two lays one on her, and lights up the sky!
  • And then does her very best to pretend like it wasn't even a thing because she has issues with this.
  • But Shining Armor saw through that, indeed, Poindexter was sincere, and the first step to reconnection is made! Now they just have to wait for Luna to go on to the next part!
  • ...Wait for Luna.
  • Luna?
  • It turns out, Pennydrop had been drinking her coffee at the WORST moment, and when the kiss happened she literally spit it out all over her monitor. Now, she can't talk to Luna, and without her helper the princess is lost and adrift!
  • What a terrible thing...
  • She's ready to start the finale.

Thread 92 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, GAME OVER EDITION!
  • Luna is lost without her "Computer" to help her out thanks to PD's coffee shorting out her system. Nonetheless, she soldiers on.
  • Applejack is still tangled up in vines from her misfired spell. Twilight watches on, but doesn't help. After Chrysalis arrives and is particularly malicious with her taunts, dues to her still being sore with Applejack about what she said to Cadence, Applejack goes full rage, rolls a Crit and magic missles the hell out of them, then takes Twilight's axe while they're smoking on the ground.
  • In the aftermath, Chrysalis and Twilight muse about the situation.
  • SA and Cadence talk about the kiss with 42, and she's appreciative he's so okay with it.
  • SA and Poindexter have a moment before they split.
  • The Main Five plus Spike and Poindexter eventually meet back up after hurting each other a lot, and a giant chunk of metal falling on Applejack for no reason.
  • Same with the CE crew plus Twi.
  • Then Luna summons a giant storm above all of them from the remains of heat and steam that came off Cadence and Poindexter.
  • Then that heat and steam magic combine, and all get to watch as the final boss is revealed. It's a giant fucking ice/Lava monster that is literally as big as a mountain, because Luna does not go halfsies with this.
  • It states that it was a being that had been split into two parts because it was a being of nothingness. It was to be re-created with the emotions that prevailed when it was recombined. It could have been anything, an alliance, friendship, whatever, as it's primary emotion when it recombined.
  • But they chose war, soooo..
  • Yeah.
  • Only one problem, it seems to be putting a strain on everything, and the world is struggling to accept a character as big as a mountain, but no time for that.
  • Final battle start!
  • Outside, the other battle keeps raging. Guards and changelings VS robots, with Sombra joining in and Pommel in command of it all. But still, it's not working out so well.
  • Then the kindly old I'm-Not-Snake-Eyes janitor gives a frantic Coltsly, who in an odd departure from the norm actually is just genuinely worried about the city, an idea!
  • She starts handing out the 'free samples', and thus the guard start shooting lightning at the robots.
  • With their and Sombra's help, eventually the robot uprising is quelled, and all the figures are destroyed.
  • Shiny's not going to be happy about that.
  • Perhaps anticipating this, a genuinely remorseful Sombra decides to give himself in once he makes sure Two is okay for punishment.
  • Two is, in fact, okay. Actarius, not so much. He took some damage and is now in the hospital.
  • Pommel has had a very rough day...
  • But hey, the guards are just as shocked as he is that they and the changelings succeeded without a super-being to save them.
  • Further away, in Ponyville, Mayor Mare knows how to Chess-box and she loves it. 29, not so much.
  • Further FURTHER, in the Crystal Empire, Sunset and Spitfire end up in various rooms by accident, each one eliciting some surprise. They can explain away some, like how Chrysalis's bedroom doesn't look used, but uh... it's harder to make up stuff for why Shining and Cadence have a fuckhuge bed that multiple ponies, and not ponies, clearly sleep on.
  • Including, as Spitfire is quick to notice, Celestia.
  • They try their hardest not to question that one.
  • 7 hits a snag in his weird experiments with another unrevealed creature, named "Blossom". He realizes he needs to go see an old acquaintance or risk hurting them. We don't know who this is yet. Seigfried and crew go to meet up with the leader of the Pit of a Thousand corpses, managing to spy their newest possession, a Kelpie, in the meanwhile.
  • They don't like this place.
  • Back in the game, it's all coming down.
  • Both sides scale the side of the monster opposite of each other, with the non-fliers being carried on fliers backs except Shining, because apparently they just need to make that a point sometimes.
  • Both groups spot each other, and begin to race! Only this time, the animosity is gone and it's down to a friendly competition. They even help each other out scaling the thing! Everything is working out!
  • ...and then the world starts fucking up because the club, and subsequently the fake reality, can't even handle this right now.
  • Alarms start going off, everything's blaring, it's the end of the world as they know it and they don't feel fine!
  • Neither does Luna, who in the middle of all this is feeling like a failure because they're SO CLOSE to the end!
  • With the code becoming corrupted, it looks like the end...
  • But, hark! What is that swearing up a storm? None other than Pennydrop herself! She's back baby!
  • And she is freaking out because everything is going wrong!
  • She has a bit of a moral dilemma, feeling bad for Luna because of totally-not-similar-feelings-she's-had but not wanting to admit weakness.
  • So she makes up some bullshit to herself about 'this is her campaign, really', and she gets her ass to work.
  • Using the power of 'typing really hard', she manages to fix the broken code by filling in the gaps. How, you ask?
  • By taking other games Twilight programmed into the room, and putting them in the broken parts. The result?
  • It becomes a free-for-all with dozens of different game genres and assets being used by our heroes, handwaved in the game by stating the giant rock monster is a mulitversal being that they are powering up who is now threatening reality itself, and we get to witness everyone play with the rules of their favorite genre, from FPS to Tank-Command to Platformers, and everything in between.
  • They reach the top, and the rock monster calls them out for their behavior. They realize that yes, they took some things too far, weren't very sporting sometimes, and just all around needed some improvement.
  • But, as they point out, deep down they also never changed the fact they always, always want to be friends, so...
  • FRIENDSHIP END!
  • "The world" is saved.
  • Story is over.
  • The end.
  • Just one last thing, Twilight wants to know how Luna did so well.
  • Just after Pennydrop gives one last ominious words to Luna "It was... fun... and it'll go better next time", she's gone, leaving Luna alone just before Twilight enters.
  • She confesses to getting help from Twilight's "Computer" AI
  • One problem, there's no AI on that thing.
  • Luna freaks out, Twilight not so much. Why?
  • There's no sensitive information on that console, for a lot of reasons. They could have gone after other info using a connection, but they finished their download over two hours ago, before Poindexter got the firelord powers, and never went for it.
  • Luna takes this quite well, and now believes someone was watching her in her darkest moment and helped her out, asking nothing in return.
  • Twilight points out this is still super illegal and they need to arrest them.
  • ..."Mmmmhmm!"
  • It's not looking good.
  • Celestia appears on the scene and has a moment with Luna, saying she's proud of her. And all is well.
  • ...then they see what's happened outside.
  • Freakouts happen, Changelings are grounded, Pommel is both punched and hoof-shaked, and Dash learns of the Wonderbolt's actions, and is now off to take vengeance.
  • And this is why they don't take vacations.
  • Like, say, DT and Silver Spoon, who arrive after a day of fun to have found they missed everything. The former is not happy.
  • But still, cleanup aside, all's well that ends well.
  • But one last thing... 18 wants to know why 42 did the horn-beam thing when she kissed Cadence.
  • When Cadence points out that 18 did it too when Shining kissed her after the date, 18 says that's because she couldn't control her own love. So, 18 comes to the conclusion it was just the spell.
  • Cadence agrees until 18 walks off, then realizes that, as a soldier, it should have come out of her hooves in game. Answer solved!
  • ....wait....
  • ....Wait..
  • .....waaiiiit...
  • .........WAIT A MINUTE!

Thread 93 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, Findings, friends and firings edition!
  • Luna sends her nightguard off to go find info on who hacked the OnO game, at the end they get a lead.
  • The changelings are quite irate at being 'grounded' by Chrysalis, yet none of them have the moxy to say anything to 42 about it.
  • 41 is dragged back to the ballroom after being found by said punchbug classic, that's everyone
  • Except JJ, who is allowed to stay in the hospital with Actarius who is suffering from a LOT of concussions.
  • While they're locked up, despite what 42 says Chrysalis firmly believes that this didn't change anything with the ponies. However, some awkward pony does show up to give them a credit card...
  • Yeah, he's a little weird.
  • 18 also thinks she's going crazy, and we get to learn that there was a 3000 year old changeling... that Momsie killed. Yeah...
  • SA and Celestia discuss the previous event with 42 kissing Cadence, with SA pointing out he recognized that flare from being when a changeling is too pent up on love. Celestia muses that it's entirely likely it was just the simulation, and he can't argue her.
  • Then she starts whipping him with a towel, because he's forever her whipping boy.
  • Chrysalis briefly joins in because of course she does.
  • Sweet Note thinks it will be easy to get a lawyer because this is a slam dunk case, 13 isn't so sure.
  • Applejack fears a mountain of paperwork, but thankfully 18 is there to kill everything except the legal work, because she's just that damn obsessive-er, that good.
  • Still, legal matters are needed, and after some questioning, Spike and Applejack realize they don't know if they have a legal team to handle matters like getting sued because you shot a superbug in the face.
  • They question Celestia, hoping to see a freakout, but Celestia just points out that she wrote most of these laws, so there's never been a case she can't handle personally.
  • Then she shoves the responsibility onto AJ because AJ hired Pommel, and that's totally fair.
  • 29 gets a letter from 56 detailing what happened at Canterlot... he's strangely unmoved.
  • Gilda points out to LD that this is all messed up, LD is just drinking in her victory.
  • Twilight and Rarity fix the hallway thanks to the power of MONTAGE!
  • 32 and 88 come back to Canterlot to find it in ruins. But at least the janitor made out like a bandit.
  • Spitfire and Sunset FINALLY make it to the office, and begin their investigation. A preliminary scan reveals nothing, except that 'Cadence' does way more city works than is sane. But everything on the desk points to it being her.
  • Oh, and then they come across "Two's" desk, and Spitfire has a little moment.
  • Still, they're ready to leave... until Spitfire notices something in the stacks
  • They discover "Cadence" has been doing Wonderbolt paperwork, a LOT of it.
  • Spitfire... does not take this well. She rages for a while, declaring she's going to expose all of it to everyone, and rants and thrashes her little head off, letting slip to Sunset she used to have to wear a maid outfit and clean Dash's underwear with her tongue.
  • But when she realizes it would implicate Cadence, she immediately backs down, and brushes it off.
  • Immediately after this, Spitfire sits in the big chair, and realizes that's not Cadence... Because she tried on her underwear once, and it didn't fit, then she saw Cadence when it on and it fit fine
  • Try not to ask how that train of events happened.
  • But, with that out of the way, more investigations reveal that it was, indeed, 18 all along!
  • And, as Spitfire puts it. "Oh... okay."
  • Sunset has a bit harsher a reaction. Mostly with screaming, declarations of takeovers, freakouts and probably a lot of thoughts of changelings hate that went mostly unsaid.
  • So, Spitfire slaps some sense into her, literally, and then explains 18 does not give a fuck about Chrysalis, and that this isn't a plot, and explains to Sunset why this all makes sense to her now.
  • This actually makes Sunset MORE angrywhen she realizes that Cadence is running around being a celebrity while someone is toiling away, working her ass off to make the Empire better, and generally being not-a-real-princess.
  • She decides she's going to tell everyone about this one.
  • Spitfire, realizing that this would screw over Cadence, tries to stop her. She gets magic-shoved into a wall for her troubles.
  • Back and forth ensues, until Spitfire gets the upper hand and has her pinned.
  • Debate ensues where they realize they both know this is wrong, Spitfire just isn't willing to hurt someone in the process. Sunset, eventually, agrees with her, and declars she'll only tell it to Applejack.
  • Spitfire risks trusting her, and then they both go to Canterlot.
  • They share a moment, and both go off in their own ways. Sunset to confront Applejack, and Spitfire to admit her failings to Shining Armor.
  • Meanwhile, Dash calls Fleetfoot and Soarin' into the room.
  • She brutally chews out Fleetfoot, all the past year of problems finally rising to the surface and allowing her to finally get revenge for the drug problem Fleetfoot totally 'wasn't' involved in.
  • Despite her pleas, she fires Fleetfoot.
  • She is much softer on Soarin', reminding him of all the good he's done, and is seemingly ready to give him another chance.
  • He declines, and quits, saying he abandoned one friend, and he's not going to do it again, and goes after Fleetfoot.
  • The age of a wonderbolts without any senior members has begun.
  • Spitfire talks with Shining, admits what she did with the investigation, putting Cadence at risk, and letting Sunset know of state secrets without making an excuse for herself, and...
  • He's fine. Seems to blame himself for not telling her about 18 more than anything.
  • They are both worried due to Sunset's actions against Cadence, but there's no blaming.
  • Spitfire, who had been considering quitting, decides to stay in the Empire.
  • They're back to being friends, and it's sweet.

Thread 94 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, APPLEJACK IS MAGIC EDITION!
  • Pommel make a request to Chrysalis to be able to thank the changelings for their help. Reluctantly, she agrees.
  • Applejack confronts Coltsly about the issue, the latter apologizes and wonders where Applejack was.
  • Rarity goes off to find Cadence, does so when she discovers Caddy examining the residue left behind by 42's flare. It confuses her, and Rarity almost lets 'the secret' slip.
  • Spike and the gunclub hand out and try to find out where everyone's been. 42 leaves an obvious scarecrow to cover for her guarding the changelings... nobody has the balls to see if it's real or not.
  • Spike tries to pry into the Cadence situation, gets put in a headlock for a completely unrelated reason.
  • Luna convinces Applejack to take 'a walk'.
  • Surprise! It was actually leading her into the garden so she could run a gauntlet so she could learn magic.
  • It... does not work. Applejack mostly just tells her no and figures out how to solve the puzzles with earth pony ingenuity. All the while, Luna stresses that this will make her 'better' by showing her new perspectives that will allow her to see things and think of things like a non-magic user never could.... this angers Applejack just a little bit.
  • Just a bit.
  • But eventually, Luna grows frustrated and snaps, sealing her off in a magically conjured hallway. Applejack will have to overcome four tests if she wants to walk free!
  • Orrrr, Chrysalis could just burst in through the other side because she's looking for Applejack to chew her out, and then use the previously thought Useless Changeling Powers to overcome all of the obstacles.
  • Luna rants at her, Chrysalis does not care, Applejack is annoyed she proved Luna's point by using magic, and Luna flies off.
  • But that's not all. A short discussion with Chrysalis reveals that none of those powers was her own, and she reminisces about how she learned them.
  • Through this, perhaps inadvertently, Applejack gets the idea about learning from family, and later talks about the subject with Applebloom.
  • After spotting Shining Armor leaving his old room with Spitfire, Celestia and him have a talk where they discuss Sunset's recent actions. While at first Shining Armor is quite critical of her and thinking she needs to be severely dealt with, eventually comes around to being more forgiving thanks to Celestia's insight.
  • They decide to talk to Sunset together.
  • Sweet Note can't get any lawyers to take the Chitania case, so thinks about doing it herself. Chitania says she will handle it and goes off.
  • Spike order a 'special cake' from the Cakes... it causes family problems.
  • Also, apparently Chrysalis tastes like emeralds...don't question that.
  • Actarius reaps the joys of morphine!
  • A kindergarten class gives the changelings a picture and a banner to thank them for saving them during the invasion.
  • 42criticizes their robot-drawing skills, because she is Punchbug, and her social skills suck.
  • Luna crash lands in 29's house, and declares the REAL training starts now. She's still a little angry about the Chrysalis-Applejack thing.
  • 32 and 88 give Chrysalis the good news, 77 is getting married! She takes it well.
  • Then they tell 42, she spazzes out a bit.
  • Aj talks about learning magic with Winona, who is a huge help of course.
  • Twilight tries to help Fluttershy be calm and it does not work.
  • Finally, Sunset confronts Applejack about what she's learned, and braces for the explosion this reveal will no doubt cause.
  • "...and?"
  • Not what she expected.
  • Reveal after reveal is had wherein Sunset learns that everyone was in on this, everyone. Celestia, Twilight, EVERYONE.
  • The more she learns, the more stress is placed upon her, and she's beginning to snap.
  • Dash was hired by Applejack, and ONLY Applejack, and Applejack passed over any possible alternative, notably Soarin', in order to put her at the top. Despite this, Dash had zero knowledge of anything remotely regarding the Captains regulations or how to do the work before she was forced on.
  • More and more is revealed, and the worse it gets. When Applejack tries to claim she didn't really dislike the changelings, Sunset points out how she taught her the exact opposite for as long as she's been here, and the lingering hate from Variolus's events crop up when Sunset remembers her time under her.
  • Eventually, Sunset brings up that she's going to tell everyone everything, just like she did with Spitfire, and Applejack says she won't let that happen.
  • When Sunset tries to bring up being killed by the rock, Applejack stops her, pointing out she knew full well what that entailed, and it doesn't excuse what she's doing.
  • It looks like it's going to cometo a confrontation, when suddenly Dash comes in, quite despondent at having to have had to fire Fleetfoot and Soarin'. She needs some drinks, and AJ provides.
  • Seeing her friend like this calms Applejack down immensely, and she tries to help her through it while also trying to stifle Sunset's cutting remarks.
  • Dash admits how hard it's been and that she couldn't have asked either of them for help because they already didn't think she deserved the position, and she had to prove it to them.
  • When Sunset brings up Dash only got promoted because of AJ, Dash wonders if this is true, citing other instances when AJ had been a little too favorable to her friends. She also points out that Applejack makes a lot of choices on her own, because she's sure she's right.
  • She says Sunset can tell the world about her if she likes, but leave Cadence out of it.
  • Sunset prepares to leave again, out the door to tell the world, but Applejack stops her one last time.
  • She can leave, tell anyone and AJ won't stop her... but she is forbidden to return.
  • Sunset remembers the last time this happened, the last time this event unfolded, and how badly it ended.
  • She asks Applejack what exactly she should do instead.
  • Applejack says to come over and let her teacher finally do her job.
  • Sunset, reluctantly.. does, and joins them at the desk.
  • They all go over what they've learned this past day, how they weren't what they thought they were, and things weren't what they expected. So... What now?
  • Fix it, of course.
  • How?
  • They have no idea.
  • ...But they're gonna try.
  • And maybe not so alone this time.
  • Finally, Pennydrop receives a telling report. One of her agents has gone missing... the one who planted the machine that let her into the OnO game.
  • In Canterlot, it's revealed he's been caught by the nightgaurd, and about to be asked some very hard questions.

Thread 95 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, HE'S HEEEEERE EDITION!
  • Luna continues to torture 29, putting him through extra terrible paces in order to vent her own problems.
  • However, that night, she enters into his dreams, finding that he's rather creative in his mindscape, if a little lifeless color and occupation wise.
  • She offers to teach him the art of connecting with dreams, but he will have to allow her to see into his mind. He accepts.
  • 42 feels bad for hurting Spike by over-reacting... for two seconds.
  • Chitania enters into the room AJ, Dash and Sunset are still recovering in after their dramatic talk, and makes her demands. Either Applejack agrees to a strange request that she claims will leave nobody unharmed, or she pays out an absolutely monstrously high, yet still totally reasonable due to the case, amount.
  • It's later revealed that the request is, Twilight agrees to an unrevealed to them medical procedure, alone, with bomb collars on the necks of herself, Celestia, Luna and Applejack to go off in case she dies, or she goes ahead with the case and bankrupts Canterlot. There's no guarantee Chitania will keep her word and not just blow their heads off when it's done, and worse they don't even know if they're doing something that will make her more powerful, as none of them know she can't go into Titan form yet. But the alternative is putting an ungodly strain on an already on the edge city, and making life very hard for her little ponies.
  • Applejack has to make a hard choice...
  • Chitania is sure they'll make the 'right' choice.
  • Sunset leaves the room, and stumbles across none other than little old Two! Two found out she accidentally left her plant behind, and that wasn't going to stand. So she brought it to her!
  • In the discussion, Sunset muses how she just keeps failing when she's trying really hard. Two brings up that she too tried really hard on her math test, but failed too. But that's okay! Because with Mommy's help, she was able to bring that F up to a B. So, Sunset just needs her friends, and soon no more F's.
  • Chrysalis looks over the Orb, lavishing over all the possibilities she has now.
  • 18 is having a bit of a breakdown because someone touched her papers. Shiny has to fix this with cheeksmooches.
  • It works.
  • ....attt least until they meet up with Sunset, when 18 loses all sense of sanity and literally starts tearing into her like a dog.
  • Literally. Picks her up by the neck with her fangs and then starts shaking.
  • Efforts by SA and Celestia prove fruitless.
  • As does AJ's idea of 'cheese'
  • "WELL IT WORKED ON WINONA!"
  • It is only threats of doghousery that gets her to let go.
  • After literally chewing her out, 18 moves on to verbally doing such, and threatening her before leaving.
  • SA and Celestia decide not to further compound the issue.
  • However, Sunset notices something... off, with SA, that neither of the others seem to... Dash finally talks to her Wonderbolts, and clears some stuff up. First and foremost, Soarin' and Fleetfoot are gone, but more importantly, they, the Wonderbolts, can talk to her! Easily! And no backlash!
  • Needless to say, they have many questions, but thank goodness Second in Command Lightning Dust is there to help!... This is going to go well, she looks trustworthy.
  • But don't worry too much for Soar and FF, for it turns out years of rule violating private airshows, gambling, and... a-hem... NOT drugs? Has left Fleetfoot very well off. But, alas, all she wants to be is a Wonderbolt...
  • Screwloose gets a surprise visitor, Seven, and he even brought along Buttercup!
  • So, lots of scalpels thrown, some medical talk, strangling and threats, same old. But it turns out Seven is looking for help! Brain help!... And Screwloose gives it! We also learn of an old experiment of Screwloose's she thought lost. He's named her Bubbles, much to her distaste.
  • She then tries to blackmail him by threatening to reveal his existence, only that sort of doesn't work because... he signed in, and was allowed to be there.
  • Whoops.
  • Chrysalis is befuddled by the banner the kids brought the other day.
  • Harry the bear started an armed militia group... I don't even know.
  • 32 visits the gunclub and tells them the good news about 77!
  • He also visits Acty, and 88 is irritated at his and JJ's... themness.
  • Spike origins! Turns out his egg was supposed to be an ingredient for a cake... huh.
  • 56 has a moment with a split personality.
  • Chrysalis and Spitfire become bros.... that is all.
  • Pinkie tries to help the lings find jobs! Runs into an issue when none of them have cutie marks...
  • Zephyrious and Hilda go visit one of the royals they need to convince for the Kingsmoot, meet up with the prince and Princess of a the land and banter and have a discussion.
  • Rarity stops by the gun club, she has her own upgraded pistol.
  • Lavan, being of destruction and... well... lava, obviously, at last slips past the celestial being Craig, yes, CRAIG! THE GOD!... CRAIG!
  • He slips past him and makes landfall, just outside of the Crystal Empire!
  • However, as it turns out, he's not so much a being of unholy destruction, as his distortions and fie would imply, mostly... he's just bored.
  • He's been in space for who knows how long, occasionally catching a glimpse of a planet, and now he's bored.
  • Booored.
  • So he goes to the Empire to see something interesting, but they won't let him in.
  • He talks with Cadence, and after a pleasant conversation where she asserts she won't let him in because of random fire, he decides to go off, because watching is boring, he wants to be in the thing.
  • Thus, our heroes have no idea what to do, as he's clearly powerful, but not hostile, so they can't just shoot him.
  • ...huh.
  • ...LAVAN! THE BEING OF FIRE! HE'S KINDA BORED!

Thread 96 Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP, 42 IS A LOVEBUG EDITION!
  • Lavan continues his trek across Equestria, meeting many a random character, including a Stalliongrad national and even Surfer Zebra!
  • He also sings, because ponies.
  • The main six, discussing him, aren't quite sure what to do, since he's not violent so they can't just shoot him. They decide to leave him alone until he does that
  • Pommel is put on high alert, and laments he's only been there a month.
  • Spitfire is proud because her pegasi handled everything well.
  • Red, inside of Primrose, is VERY happy with these turns of events.
  • 29 has become strong in dream powers, carrying a ghost child into a fantasy theme park of beauty and wonder before sending her away.
  • It's so beautiful, you'll forget to ask how a ghost is sleeping. But it works, a lot!
  • Later, Luna decides to use this to show MM, Zecora and Trixie the ghost kids, it is implied the process yet revealed will be painful.
  • Chrysalis busts in to the construction workers working on the stadium and tell them to kick it into gear.
  • Applejack makes her choice, and Chitania gets her heart surgery from Twilight. During, Twilight has a nice long rant to tell her that this whole damn thing could have been avoided a month ago, and that she was an idiot for dealing with it for so long, and that she could've had both the money and been fixed forever ago.
  • But no matter, Chitania is fixed! And Titans again!
  • Applejack decides enough is enough, grabs 56, and decides to have herself a chat with Chrysalis about the changeling situation in Canterlot.
  • Most importantly, that they have both made a lot, a lot, of mistakes.
  • Admissions are had, Chrysalis finally starts to think that maybe Applejack isn't out to destroy her, and Applejack says she wants to try something with the changelings. Chrysalis, without knowing what it is, agrees to it under the condition Applejack has two days to pull it off.
  • Later, internal monologues from Chrysalis reveals she doesn't think that Applejack can pull it off, but is willing to let her try to end this headache she has. Because she needs to focus on squashing all disloyalty in her hive before she moves on to the next step and attempts to ascend some of the drones.
  • As an aside, she also notices she's still bothered by the fact she was slightly jealous about Forty Two kissing Cadence instead of her.
  • Applejack, internally, muses she was right in that the way to disarm Chrysalis from the powerplay she loves was to bring 56, as Chrysalis wouldn't be willing to toss him across the room in a show of power. With determination, she declares she's going to get it right.
  • Rarity makes the Wonderbolts lightning proof clothing, but it's rather expensive, so they might need to do a charity thing.
  • Coincidentally, when Dash laments all the elite hate them for blowing off their parties, Lightning Dust suggests, of course, charities on the same day! That way they're not 'blowing anyone off', official duty.
  • This pleases the Dash.
  • Shining writes a note telling them to let Sombra out of the pen, but it's not quite... official enough.
  • 7 goes back to visit the scientist mare from a while ago with the bio research, gets her drunk at a bar.
  • Soarin' and Fleetfoot try to get up, fail.
  • Zephyrious finally gets his audience with Lord Niall, and many a debate and accusation about what he did with Chitania was had. Eventually, the gryphon lord sees it his way.
  • Siegfried also finally gets his audience with the Cloudwings
  • AJ won't let DT go after Lavan
  • Spike is still haunted from being unable to stop Chrysalis, and decides to take a leave of absence from Ponyville to go get stronger.
  • Cadence, at last, confronts 42 about the burned ceiling and the residual sparklejoules.
  • She of course denies it, but due to her knowledge on the subject Cadence shoots that down.
  • 42 starts to panic while she thinks Cadence is unraveling her secret, while Cadence just thinks she was picturing Shiny when the kiss happened.
  • One bad move, and Cadence catches on to the truth.
  • ”I'M SORRY SO SORRY PLEASE FORGET!”
  • Cue 42 teleporting off in a panic while it all sinks in to Cadence, who of course treats this with the upmost respect such a reveal deserves.
  • "...In your FACE SHINY! I CAN DO IT TOO! IT'S NOT JUST YOU! WOOOO! WHO'S SEXY NOW!? WHO'S..."
  • "OH CRAP FORTY TWO I'M SORRY COME BACK!"
  • So much respect.
  • She tears off, interrupting yet another almost kiss between 18 and Shining in her frenzy.
  • She finds and rants at Chrysalis, who promptly slaps her until she stops being crazy. When Cadence tells her all about what happened, or at least the vague outline that she said something and 42 tore off and might be outside of the Empire, Chrysalis is off, noticing right away that 42 has one hell of a lead on her.
  • 42 literally bamfs-flies across Equestria, before ending up over Canterlot but fully intending to pass over it. No such luck, as she is snatched right out of the sky by none other than Celestia and brought to her room, who thinks she is Chrysalis due to the teleporting and was merely playing a game, and is quite shocked when this is not the case.
  • Things are said, panicking is had, long story short 42 ends up under Celestia's bed completely out of magic.
  • The pair have a heart to heart where 42 finally reveals her affection for Cadence, and have a long discussion about the matters of the heart being immovable, and not something you can punch out of you... but this doesn't mean it has to change or define you, what you do with your actions defines you.
  • 42 reveals that she hates the fact she is a changeling, and has a built in deceptive nature to her, so it makes others hard to believe when affection is genuine.
  • Celestia agrees with this, but assures her Cadence does not distrust her, and nothing needs to change. After a long speech, 42 comes out, and apologizes to Celestia who brushes her off... but it's not over yet. She leaves, and someone else takes her place.
  • Chrysalis arrives on the scene, and at first it looks like she's going to go full Queen mode... then she eventually breaks down and just starts talking to her like normal, chiding her for freaking out Cadence and wondering what the hell is going on.
  • Eventually, 42 reveals her secret to her as well. At first, Chrysalis brushes it off, pointing out that she too used to have dreams wherein she married both Shining Armor and Cadence, referencing a story VERY early thread, and that this was likely just her being an asshole, and that she would kick Luna's ass.
  • 42 reveals that's not the case, and her fears about being a changeling. A long heart to heart between Queen and soldier occurs, and eventually, Chrysalis is able to put her at ease by sincerely declaring that she too, is not deceiving them. With her choice made, 42 goes back to the Empire with Celestia and Chrysalis, and find a whole lot of worried ponies and or other species waiting for her.
  • She and Cadence FINALLY have a talk about it. Things are said, secrets are revealed, and Cadence gets to see that 42's affections are genuine, but they are not the reason she kept defending her, as 42 truly does believe her to be as special as she had said.
  • Eventually, Cadence gives her own declarations that 42 is indeed special too, and that's why she trusts her, and thinks her one of her closest companions. Something... else passes there too, but for now, they agree that no, it doesn't HAVE to change anything between them, and they can go on knowing of the other, finally understanding, and moving on.
  • At long last, Punchbug's secrets are out in the open... including Fireflight.
  • Things don't HAVE to change.. but they're gonna.

Thread 97Edit

  • Lavan is still floating. Visiting old friends like Rat and the pirates, and then finding new places to enjoy like Angel Bunny... who he does not want to be near anymore.
  • Spitfire collects recon on him, being spotted only once, and then Chrysalis gets a grasp on his location, noticing he's moving in the vague direction of Catnerlot.
  • Spitfire also points out Chrysalis talks evil when she's not, but 'nuh uh' is all she gets.
  • 18 and SA wait to get filled in on what the hell just happened, 18 gets another cheeksmooch.
  • Twilight is getting ready to examine the orb, but Rarity feels nervous about the whole deal.
  • LD is letting Dash take all the credit for the charity idea with Rarity, even when it's a huge hit. This worries the Dash.
  • DT and Pennydrop talk again while DT is preparing for 77's wedding.
  • Screwloose while working on changeling biology, comes to a conclusion. A strange conclusion. She asks 12 if they kissed whether there would be love in it.
  • At first, he thinks there wouldn't be.
  • She kisses him.
  • He is wrong.
  • Spike continues looking for a way to get stronger, isn't finding much.
  • SA and Cadence have a sweet moment in their bed when they talk about what's changed with 42, and how much they don't want to change.
  • They also conk out almost immediately, because they had the bed to themselves for once and they are going to motherfucking SLEEP.
  • Chrysalis is disappointed to learn that, rather an instant powerup that took only a week to master, 42 has been training to unlock her fireflight for the better portion of a year. Despite training hard and being already well versed in their magic and how it works, she still doesn't know if she'd have it now if Cordy didn't happen. And, even then, she had to train every day to get it up to where it is now.
  • Still, Chrysalis tells her to begin a special training class to try to unlock it in others. Reluctantly, she suggests putting in 41, even though she is quite lacking.
  • This is due to the fact she wonders if heirs are capable instead, and no other ones volunteered to be soldiers.
  • Chrysalis also realizes she has no idea who 41's mother is. Neither does 42.
  • She also bans PJ from this, making the potatobug quite irate. She vents this irateness at 42, completely muffled.
  • At first it looks like Arana is terrifying Quicksilver, irritating Steam Guage, but it turns out it was actually a spider on SG that was scaring him! Ha! Mistaken identity- oh wait a minute.
  • 41 is SO HAPPY that she gets in the class she has herself a little cry then mails Chrysalis a thankyou drawing, it's not as much as 18's stash from 55, but it's a start.
  • MM, Trixie and Zecora finally get to meet the ghostkids face to face in the dreamscape! They also get to do their own dreamwarping abilities to send them on their way. Some are more effective than others.
  • 29 is also mauled by a strange being in a panda suit. Because reasons.
  • Flash and Fizzle go to help the gryphons!...The blackfeathers to be precise, in an ambush against Siegfried. This is going to end well.
  • Chitania goes and gets her hair done with 13.
  • Gwen and Isabelle go see Falconstein, a frankenstien Homage that is obsessed with creation! Like his gun... which is a basic gun. Or his greatest creation, that's essentially a nothing version of a Fawntaine robot.
  • He doesn't get out much.
  • He agrees to side with them when Gwen offers him a deal to meet with Fawntaine.
  • Pommel speaks with the guards about AJ's as yet unrevealed plan to help relations with the changelings, they're not happy.
  • It's only after a lengthy speech that Suckerpunch, Haymaker and Lucky Strikes join in on the plan, and the budding hint of better times shows in the rest of the guards.
  • Fleetfoot tries to sneak in to see a WB show, Dash catches her in the act and chews her out before telling her to leave. She expected FF to put up a fight, and was thus disappointed when the fight seemed just gone from her instead.
  • With her gone, Dash begins to question her actions.
  • 18 and 42 are, and ever shall be, bros.
  • Pennydrop goes and sees Coltsly, who is completely oblivious to evil-speak.
  • Twilight and SA reminisce with some dark humor.
  • The Buzz goes to see 32 about a work Visa. Turns out he can't get one while in Canterlot, but there's no way for him to get one outside Canterlot.
  • This is a puzzler.
  • Sombra is still locked up
  • 7 runs into Applejack in the hall, said mare has been worried about him. She also makes herself look like a silly pony in front of Buttercup by accident. Buttercup does not like how close she was to 7.
  • After they leave, AJ wonders if she should send Spike to go see if 7 is okay.
  • SA and Celly have a heart to heart about recent changes, it's as sweet as ever.
  • DT and SS prove that earth pony moxie is no match for a rocketsled.
  • SA tries to hint he wants to have sex with Cadence to her, she doesn't catch on.
  • Sunset gets the bad news from Twi, she can't remove the heart-stone because it's all that's sustaining her. She also turns down the idea of using the changeling magic to turn her INTO a changeling so things like touch work.
  • Chrysalis is going down the list of who she would ascend, can't decide on if she should to 42 or not.
  • Chrysalis, Twi and Celestia examine the orb to get ready for it. Chrysalis at first tries to play coy and evil, but neither of them buy it. Then the topic turns to Sunset when Twilight wants to bring her into this, but gets heated when Chrysalis shoots her down, hard.
  • Eventually, Chrysalis just tells her she trusts Twi, and she trusts Celly, but she doesn't trust Sunset, and this might be her last shot.
  • What that means, Twi has no idea.
  • Finally, someone is asking a lot of questions that might lead them to Pennydrop, and whoever is asking them is too intimidating for anyone to tell her who. She goes on high alert.
  • Miles away, a shadowy figure grabs a Fawntaine worker, stating her princess has questions, and she's gone.

Thread 98Edit

  • Robert, the gryphon, meets Barnabus, the Blackfeather, to plot their next move against Idris and Gwen.
  • Spitfire will not make a fire hurricane for Chrysalis... when others can see it.
  • Also, Spitfire learns Chrysalis is not the jealous type when it comes to someone else and Shiny.
  • Applejack and Fluttershy discuss how Chrysalis is helping her.
  • DT tries to bribe Applebloom to help her with AJ, it does not work.
  • Later, DT tries to be more adult at an artshow exclusively for adults, only to have her day ruined when AJ shows up and treats her like a kid. DT vows she will prove she's not a little filly.
  • Chitania, while researching the robot, gets an unexpected visitor in the form of none other than Discord, who explains to her Lavan is coming, and is as close to a god as she is going to find. They back and forth for a bit, with Chitania mostly in fear even when it's revealed she has something to stop him. She claims that this is obviously a trap to have her killed against Lavan, before Discord calls her out and says if she really does want to play in the big games and overthrow gods, it's time to put up or shut up, and leaves.
  • 18 wants to go on another date, Shiny says okay.
  • Discord bugs both AJ and Rarity.
  • Applejack spots Sweet Note all alone, and finally confronts her about if Chitania is doing anything dangerous. Sweet Note calls her out for trying to make her turn on Chitania and clams up. Applejack finally asks why SN has such a problem with her, and SN reveals that AJ is just the same as any other Canterlot Elite. She only cares about fixing the important places, the visible places, while places that she came from remain something that it's just too hard to deal with. She says when she was a kid, she dreamed of being a princess just like AJ is now, and fixing all the bad places, but now she doesn't think she'd be able to do it. If Applejack, an earth pony, would turn out like that, she has no hope.
  • AJ asks her where she came from so she can look into fixing it, but SN just calls her out that it's not just her place, it's lots of places. She didn't want to just fix her home, but for everyone like where she grew up.
  • Applejack pleads that she's trying, but she's just one mare, she can't do everything. Sweet Note seems to accept this, albeit sadly, and resolves just to look out for her and her own.
  • Applejack decides to prove her wrong.
  • 41's first day of teleport training goes well. And by that I mean she gets punched in the face a lot.
  • Discord is needlessly invasive as he scans Spitfire for any residue magic from Lavan.
  • Nobody will sell or take Soarin' or Fleetfoot's money, and they must wear disguises.
  • MM, Zecora and 29 have so much fun with the dream stuff.
  • Until Luna tests them with nightmares, that is... but only so she could advertise LIGHTSPEED XV 2 PANTIES!
  • She needed the bits.
  • 10 is expanding her media empire.
  • Aj is working more on her magic.
  • Chrysalis is waiting on Celestia's bed for AJ's plan to go off so she can laugh when it fails. Celestia joins her.
  • The monopony box lied to Chitty and 13, it is not fun.
  • The crystal pegasi are still a work in progress
  • The kidnapped scientist from last thread is being held in a warehouse and interrogated by two nightguards. She is not very helpful.
  • But, as it turns out, this scientist is none other than the one that Seven has been seeing! He comes to her rescue... And promptly gets his ass kicked six ways to sunday by the two guards, due to him being so low on love he cannot shapeshift, fly or shoot lasers. The nightguard, now thinking this is a plot from Chrysalis to infiltrate the princess, hold nothing back as they savagely beat him, interrogating him all the while. This is not how the scientist expected this to go.
  • Not only that, but he cannot even drain the nightguard, for they are now wearing mesh clothing under their fur that prevents direct contact. He is very nearly beaten half to death, but due to quick thinking, some green goo to a ponies face and a well placed hoof between the legs and then into a screaming mouth turns the tide, and he eventually wins!
  • Then it turns out this whole thing was a misunderstanding, and the guard get their next lead while Seven flies away.
  • However, someone else was watching. Buttercup, interested in the guard, decide to follow them when they say they will report this to Luna.
  • Lavan, after several trips wherein he meets many of those who Chitania once stomped, meets Fluttershy, and reminisces about Discord before spotting Canterlot, and wondering if he should go visit.
  • Chrysalis asks Celestia if it's normal she was a little jealous when 42 got to kiss Cadence and not her.
  • Celestia says no.
  • Next comes laser horns.
  • Haymaker wonders if it's nice that Glimmer has someone to go home to. It is.
  • Spike talks about his problems to SA, who thinks he's being silly.
  • Rarity has a package for 32, and JJ and Actarius discuss packages.
  • Cadence now has 18 by the... ovaries?
  • She gets what she wants when she wants to sparklefy the guard, is the point.
  • SA walks in on Chrysalis smothering Celly. Asks no questions, just separates them and waits.
  • Applejack calls Celestia over, and asks her a question.
  • They reminisce about back when the changelings arrived, and how much AJ wanted them gone more than anything. She muses that she wasn't the best to them, and because of this everyone else just sort of followed her example. She accepts she did wrong when they were here and it just never got better.
  • So, instead, she wants to take the changelings on a field trip!
  • Yes, a field trip. To bolster their image in Canterlot and Ponyville. So all can see they're not all bad. Celestia just knows it's going to be magical.
  • 77 asks Chrysalis to see if she can find a banner underneath Canterlot that he left behind when he was in the caves.
  • Mane-iac is a good teacher to the pegasi.
  • Dash investigates a strange disturbance on the back of Canterlot, finds a giant hole
  • The hole contains a strange, green eyed Quarry eel.
  • Dash kicks it.
  • Long story short, the eel is sent off, but is acting strange.
  • Celestia returns to her room, finding Shiny has left, and only Chrysalis is still on her bed. At first, she praises the Queen for being so open to this idea, but changes her tune when she learns that Chrysalis doesn't even know what it is.
  • Further interrogation shows that Chrysalis doesn't care, because due to past events, none of them will go with it.
  • She won't stop or challenge it, just like she promised, but she doesn't think it will work.
  • After a bit of back and forth, Celestia decides to tell a story. About a clean pony on the top of a hill, and a bit of mud someone brought up.
  • Long story short, it's a metaphor for not letting your own sticking points with someone trickle down and grow over the subjects you rule.
  • Chrysalis seems to understand, if nothing else, and leaves.
  • But not before setting Celestia's bed on fire with her teleport, because it is still Chrysalis.
  • Speaking of, Chrysalis takes the words to heart, and begins to plot...
  • AJ, alone, prepares to go in, and see the changelings.

Thread 99Edit

  • AJ finally confronts the changelings, and apologizes for doing them so wrong thus far.
  • She promises things are going to be better now, and she'll work to help them along. After she finishes her massive speech, she lays out her plans to go city to city to prove they aren't monsters, and hopes they will join.
  • Absolutely every one of them reject her, some of them angrier than others. The buildup has been far too much, and they just plain don't believe her. It all looks hopeless.
  • Until Chrysalis arrives! And... just kinda hangs out a bit.
  • Doesn't do anything special, just hangs around.
  • But this actually puts the changelings at ease, since their Queen seems to no longer be fighting Applejack. And if their QUEEN is okay with her.
  • Long story short, Applejack now has 15 changelings who are joining in. Arana and 41 are included, with 41 being given a 'special mission' to 'gather sights' for teleport practice.
  • AKA Chrysalis felt bad for her... weirdly.
  • SA finally remembers Sombra is locked up... during the date.
  • 2 beats him to the punch, giving up her piggy bank as 'bail' and Sombra is 'released into her custody' he's free now.
  • Discord is musing to himself about Lavan, doesn't notice Winona talking to him... I dunno either. Celestia convinces Lavan to go bug the gryphons for two days so Chrysalis doesn't pull out the lings too soon. He does.
  • Chrysalis later reveals she knew he was almost in the city and had a plan to pull out if the need arose. While she herself would fight Lavan, her hive would not. As such, she moves up the timetable to get her lings home. Celestia pleads with her to at least let AJ have the fifteen that volunteered, and after some debate Chrysalis agrees. 29 wakes up, finds MM and Zecora in the bed... because dream stuff, not the the other things... and says a little thanks he got such wonderful friends.
  • Shiny hears Chrysalis did a good thing. He gives her hugs... she likes hugs.
  • Screwloose baked a cake!... With metal scalpel shavings in it...
  • 12 knows she didn't mean it.
  • Fleetfoot, after being turned down by literally everyone and afraid she will never fly again, gets an idea! This idea is to leave Soarin' behind, go to Spitfire's mom's house, get maced(not part of the plan), bribe a bunch of guards, get over to the crystal Empire, and reunite Spitfire and Stormy Flare!
  • ...IT WORKS!
  • Mother and daughter have a tearful, heartfelt reunion wherein we learn Spitfire hasn't even talked to her for a year for... obvious reasons... but after many a shame and apology from Spitfire, all is well and mother and daughter are reunited once more!
  • Then Fleetfoot reveals it was her, and gets maced again. And kicked.
  • But, after some talk and apologies, it looks like Spitfire's coming around.
  • That all goes to hell when FF implies she wants to move to the Empire, and Spitfire see's through her and gets real mad.
  • Desperate FF begs she'll do anything to get another chance.
  • Spitfire, strangely, says there is something she can do, something that if she does it, FF is forgiven, and whispers it to her.
  • FF says she can't, whatever it is, and Spifire isn't surprised. FF walks off and mother and daughter catch up. Dash muses fashion, claims Rarity is getting into her brain.
  • Discord and Fluttershy discuss Lavan, with Fluttershy saying he's not so bad and Discord claiming cosmic beings don't change. She does not point out the irony.
  • 18 gets bummed her date got interrupted, and Cadence cheers her up. Turns out, kissing practice worked!
  • 29 goes up to visit 56 who is training because guardstuff. Or, better put, he's being tossed around a lot on a mat.
  • 29 laments his lost bits, for he's already paid a YEAR in advance.
  • While he's away, 32 goes to Ponyville looking for him, but only finds MM/Zecora/Trixie. He wants to expand his embassy to include Ponyville, and MM seems for the idea.
  • Chrysalis is troubled due to lack of changeling candidates for her Queen scheme, walks into Shiny's office but can't seem to manage a hah, let alone mess up his papers.
  • This disturbs Shiny more than expected. He finds he misses her messing up his papers.
  • He calls in Celestia, 18, 42, Spitfire Cadence, even APPLEJACK, but none of them can sate his paperwork destroying needs.
  • Finally, he breaks down, calls Chrysalis back in, and it turns out she misses it too.
  • MESSING UP SHINY'S PAPPPPERRRS!
  • All is right with the world.
  • DT sleep eats, apparently.
  • Chrysalis is proud her ass is bigger than AJ's.
  • That jivetalking dragon from when Twilight was searching for Chitania shows back up.
  • Applebloom wants to go on a trip. AJ, not paying attention, accidentally gives her permission, and tells her not to pack anything, for a trip to Bisongard.
  • Chrysalis and Discord critique Rarity's fashion for SA.
  • End up sad.
  • Don't ask.
  • At last, Chrysalis gets ready to send her lings back to the Empire, except for the fifteen going off with AJ. AJ meets them at the train station, and they both have a much more amicable farewell to the other than last time, to put it lightly. Both know the stakes, and the risks, and accept them.
  • For the first time, AJ and Chrysalis hoofshake, and seem to have some respect.
  • Chrysalis leave.
  • Applejack prepares her trip with the lings, and
  • "This time... Ah'm gettin' it right."

Thread 100Edit

  • NC silliness where the characters reflect on how much changed by meeting their past selves.

Thread 101Edit

  • AJ'S JOURNEY BEGINS EDITION!
  • Breakfast in the Empire! Maney learns not to reach over a stove with hair and Spitfire has officially given in to the madness.
  • Applejack's journey with the lings begins! And it's going as well as can be expected. The lings are being crazy and the guards are being no help, defeated by a mere nacho macine.
  • Also, one of them Quicksilver, is apparently cursed with a new level of unluckiness.
  • After a talk with a changeling who is trying to grow a plant inside of a pot, Applejack is inspired to bring in some backup! That backup? Sunset Shimmer!
  • The first thing she does is accidentally irradiate SS's plant... whoops. We also learn that Shimmer got drunk somehow and sent a love letter.
  • Because even being a corpse will not stop some ponies from getting drunk.
  • Later, Sunset realizes that the changelings calm down and pretend to be docile normal ponies when they are disguised, but go back to being rambunctious and crazy when not disguised. Also, they know how to sing with ponies... somehow.
  • Daw borrows SA's kung fu tapes.
  • Pinkie tries to cheer up Twilight by doing doughnuts around her, only breaks things.
  • Chrysalis is worried due to the fact she doesn't have any trustworthy heir-changelings she'd trust with becoming Queens. SA supports her in a heartwarming moment.
  • Chrysalis, Discord and Fluttershy blow up FS's cottage and make video game references.
  • Stormy Flare talks with SA, much embarrassment on the part of Spitfire is had.
  • Rarity acts very weird around Spike and AJ
  • 29 singing bad 'rock' is a bad idea.
  • The CMC continue their journey, ending up talking to a hippy BUFFALO, not bison, on their way to bisongard.
  • He's also racist, as it turns out.
  • Shiny does not let Twilight get mopey, drags her out for a day of fun that just plain makes everyone uncomfortable.
  • Spitfire discovers FS's chaos powers, an odd discussion with Discord and Chrysalis about Shining not wearing anything ensues... do not ask.
  • Luna throws 29 into a pit to be attacked by a monster. For... er, training.
  • It doesn't work the second time, and Luna blows off Trixie because of it.
  • Spitfire had fun with Mane-iac and Sombra
  • Dash has a freakout when nothing is going wrong.
  • SA wakes up to caddy cuddles... only, they're not caddy cuddles.
  • They're 18 cuddles.
  • ...He does not want them to stop. This brings out conflicting feelings, even though he does make them stop, and takes himself a nice long shower.
  • Chrysalis and Spitfire are tempted to bomb Lavan.
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz are reunited.
  • 42 and Spitfire discuss if the Crystal Pegasi are retarded, it ends in hooficuffs.
  • Later in the hot tub, still thinking about the 18 thing, SA is pondering.
  • Celestia joins him in said hot tub, and a heart to heart discussion is had about how things have changed, and how she doesn't like seeing him second guess himself instead of just being happy.
  • He says he's still not sure, but if she believes in him, he trusts in her.
  • They both feel better.
  • Rarity tries prodding into Cadence's sex life, even though Caddy isn't interested in talking about it.
  • When Rarity accidentally implies that Shining only looked to 18 because she was neglecting him, Cadence gets... angry.
  • Cold, simmering, angry. Not yelling, very cold angry.
  • She points out Rarity is just trying to find a roundabout way to connect her issue and Rarity's own with Spike, but that she won't find any answers there. Because unlike her and Spike, Cadence knows she and Shiny were meant to be.
  • Finally, Chrysalis is out in the snow around the Empire, looking at the desolate wasteland it would be impossible to build something on.
  • With the new possibility of new Queens and new Hives and a new kingdom, she's coming to terms with one more chilling possibility.
  • That she'll have to leave the Empire... and everyone in it.
  • She has a vulnerable moment when she realizes...
  • "...I don't want to go..."

Thread 102Edit

  • OH SHIT MAUD'S STILL ALIVE EDITION!
  • AJ continues her trek across Equestria, now backed by Sunset. She deals with bad gambling habits(Quicksilver is probably going to need a loan here soon), rampant punching of faces and trying to convince everyone they're not what they seem... and Sunset setting them on fire once or twice.
  • Thankfully, Sunset gets some sense sunk into her head, and she eventually learns the ways of facepunch in public! Though afraid at first, her insisting everything is okay helps the other ponies let their guards down.
  • While this is going on, Applejack is working on an unrevealed side project.
  • Trixie tries to convince Cheerilee to let her work with the demons to get necromagic... during class.
  • Dadling had a rough day, Batmom makes it all better.
  • Two holds a magic show with SA and Spitfire.
  • Cadence is using her relationship with 18 for buy-stuff leiancy.
  • Chrysalis confronts the Orb, musing about how it holds both the key to her future and the possibility she will have to leave the Empire behind. Thinking it might still have a connection to the Hivemind in it, she talks in the hopes her mother can hears, and tells her she's still the best mother ever... but Chrysalis asserts she's the greatest Queen who ever lived, and she needs to prove it.
  • Rarity begins her battle with Buttercup, one that takes her and her foe from rooftop to rooftop as Rarity uses smarts to match brute force. Even still, it seemed she is going to be overwhelmed, at least until Spike arrives and shoots the disguised manticore in the shoulder, and seemed to take her out.
  • Then its revealed that she was just playing dead again, and strangles them until Rarity blasts all of them to the street.
  • They fall into a middle of a crowd, and in a shocking turn Buttercup demands the guard arrest THEM, because Spike was sneaking around and holding up a gun. Which was... pretty understandable, actually.
  • But it seems that even the common folk won't fuck with a princess, and after some hasty coverings Spike is let off the hook, and Buttercup shuffles away, defeated, before collapsing somewhere in the woods.
  • Alone, the two muse about what just happened.
  • Seven meets Buttercup in the woods later and chides her for getting into a fight, saying they were supposed to be avoiding confrontations, and then nurses her wounds. She is forgiven after that.
  • She also wants a big gun, Seven says he'll consider it.
  • Another useless changeling power is revealed! Looking like leaves... and also smelling like peanut butter.
  • Because nature is weird.
  • 18 won't take over for AJ's absence.
  • Discord doesn't know what Lavan is up to.
  • Chrysalis is updated that the lings are doing okay since they've moved back, but is distracted enough to worry 42.
  • JJ didn't want to go with the others.
  • Chitania doesn't want 13 to go...
  • Cadence is not very wacky.
  • DT starts trying to be more adult, gets distracted by heavy weaponry.
  • 18 is happy Shiny cuddled with her and tells 42 about it. Shortly, said paperbug thanks her for essentially being the whole reason any of this happened after she decided not to force 18 to give up the 'mission' back in the day, and that she thinks of her as her very best friend.
  • While happy, 42 sticks on that 'it's all because of you' thing after she leaves, and decides she needs to talk with Cadence about this.
  • AB, SL and SB on their trip meet up with a fork in the road and a Caribou, named Cari, last name Bou. He points out that one path is a scary forest, but short, the other is a safe path, but long. But he has a cart he would be happy to bring them along in.
  • They're skeptical, of course, until he shows he has candy, and SB jumps in. AB and SL freak out and run down the scary path, but Sweetie Belle is with him for the trip he says will be 'interesting'.
  • So... yeah.
  • SL and AB regret their decisions when attacked by various creatures.
  • Luna wants to get back into a pranking mood.
  • Pinkie makes lethal sugar laden breakfast.
  • She also questions how good AJ is with money.
  • Big Mag and Granny wonder what AB is talking about going to Bisongard, but muse AJ wouldn't let her go off on her own.
  • SA takes Celly's words from last THREAD to heart and asks 18 if she wants to go out again. When 18 points out Cadence may not have the time... Shining says he'll see if it'll just be the two of them.
  • 18 promptly shorts out in joy.
  • Fleetfoot is still moping, but Soarin won't leave her.
  • AJ is determined to make things right with the lings.
  • At the Empire, Maud is revealed to still be there. And also has been speaking often with the Rainbolts, Mane-Iac and Awkwardling. She also thinks SA knows she's here, despite Pinkie telling her otherwise.
  • At last, she confronts him, much to his shock, and asks if he has any spare time. When he reveals he does have it, she says they're finally going to have their fight.
  • So, that's going to happen.
  • And Maud still has no idea he didn't know she was there.
  • Finally, PD is getting antsy with Luna's forces getting close to finding the truth, and decides to step things up a notch.
  • She's setting sail for the Gryphons, and god help whoever is in her way.

THREAD 103Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP! YOU GET A FIGHT! AND YOU GET A FIGHT! AND... THAT'S PRETTY MUCH IT, WE'RE DONE EDITION!
  • 42 is not worried about the fight with Maud... but she subtly hints that if she breaks anything of Shining's, she's caving the earth ponies face in. Subtle for her, at least.
  • Chrysalis continues helping Fluttershy get a hold on her powers, and laments that soon, FS won't need her anymore...
  • Chitania misses 13, and is experimenting on herself.
  • Celestia, swamped from the paperwork, seeks out aide... but then decides to just abduct Shiny.
  • Sunset is doing better, but still wants to set the lings on fire.
  • Chrysalis goes into disguise to walk around with ponies and play some pranks, laments how easy it would be to take a place over so she wouldn't have to build her own land, but accepts she wouldn't do that anymore.
  • Big Mac comes looking for AB... in a dress..
  • Luna decides it's time to take 29's training to the next level, consumes him in darkness and puts him in a sensory deprivation area.
  • So it's off to a great start.
  • Quicksilver fails to get out of his debts.
  • Haymaker doesn't want to join in facepunch, for fear he'll set off an international incident.
  • Buttercup buys a gun. This can only end well.
  • Finally, the battle between Maud and Shiny begins!
  • There is punching! There is bubbles! There is getting bounced up and down and Boulder making a shocking appearance! * BUT-
  • Shiny eventually wins.
  • And then it's revealed Maud only wanted to 'test his might' because she really wanted to hit him because he hit her little sisters back at PL.
  • It was a treat.
  • While AJ was watching, the lings tried to juggle molotov cocktails. Why? Because they want someone like JJ and Acty.
  • On that note, JJ somehow knows. Acty is not his coltfriend.
  • Oh, and Sunset isn't a virgin... take that as you will.
  • 42 thinks they should've gone in the magic room so Shiny could kill her.
  • Luna catches Blueblood napping on PJ, PJ makes a break for it and ends up eating a squirrel... don't ask.
  • Spitfire and SA wonder if the earth ponies are just lying in wait.
  • It's revealed that 13's bad luck isn't quite as luck based as we've been lead to believe...
  • There are costs for ridiculously good mind magics when you are a drone, it seems.
  • Spike and the Gunclub wonder where to go to eat, hijinks ensue.
  • 41 is failing at memorizing, of course.
  • Applejack is doing so well, she moves on to phase two of her plan... split up.
  • This will end well.
  • Two set something on fire. It was a giant monster... this was best case scenario.
  • Maud joins for dinner, discussions about bigger castles are had.
  • AB and SL almost get eaten by a egalitarian based bear and tiger group.
  • Until Winona stabs them with a sword.
  • ...this got weird fast.
  • Chrysalis is worried because Twilight is almost done with her experiment to let them use the orb.
  • 18 wants a ton of kids.
  • SA, after a tired day, curls up in Celestia's bed as revenge for all those times she did it to him.
  • It's adorable.
  • MEANWHILE!
  • Fluttershy starts investigating Everfree when she realizes none of the non-carinvores are around, and the herbivores are wandering free without fear. As much as she likes this, she realizes it's a bad sign. None of the monsters are around.
  • Her investigation takes her into the forest, where she's ambushed by one of said monsters, who chases her for a while.
  • Cornered by a mountain, she finds out it was a giant timberwolf. Who she then informs that, well... she wasn't running because she was scared of IT.
  • She was scared of herself.
  • It doesn't listen, and gets a chaos level beatdown as a result.
  • At the end, she can clearly see it's been abused and experimented on, and despite it being a timberwolf, it's not healed instantly like it should.
  • ...also it's fucking talking and it's name is Bubbles... that's a red flag or two.
  • Even after it admits it was just trying to scare her off, not hurt her, she is angry that someone had hurt it, she demands that it show her what it was protecting.
  • Hell hath no fury like a pacifist near a wounded animal.
  • Also meanwhile, PD arrives in the Gryphon Kingdom, and it seems the show is about to start...
  • OOCO, Spike and Chrysalis continue their trek down into the catacombs, hating each other all the way. When Spike gets a little too smug, Chrysalis lets out a screech to attract more monster, and Spike... pulls out a goddamn grenade launcher.
  • In a cave.
  • Meaning if Chrysalis didn't go all out, they'd be dead.
  • Oh Spike!

THREAD 104Edit

  • WING THINGS GETTING ALL THE LOVE EDITION!
  • OOCO, Spike and Chrysalis are trapped underneath the rocks. Spike thinks there's a way out, but there's only one problem... water.
  • Chrysalis doesn't do water, because she will fucking sink.
  • Cadence and Rarity are sad at their jobs.
  • Quicksilver apparently has a crush on Screwloose... weird. Sunset is a little miffed.
  • SA finally just asks Cadence if it's okay if he and 18 go out on a date without her, as she can't make it. Outwardly, she's fine with it, and he learns to stop double-questioning her and just trust in her.
  • 18 is elated, only one problem. It's ten in the morning, and the date isn't till the night.
  • She's slowly going insane.
  • Spitfire still hates Dash, despite 42's efforts.
  • The lings have a rave with the guards.
  • Trixie is still trying to learn demon magic from Cheerilee, it is not going well.
  • Two should not be allowed to touch stuff in Twilight's lab.
  • There is a weirdly long debate as to the merits of each in the film series, Hoof Hold My Heart.
  • Rarity ends up hospitalized and Chrysalis is the voice of reason. Things that are real are questioned.
  • Dash looks at an old picture of the WB's and wonders if they were always terrible, or if something went wrong. She questions if there was still good in them, and if she could have brought it out if she only tried harder. She realizes for all her abilities, she hasn't really inspired anyone to do better or reach better heights, just knocked them down.
  • She comes to the conclusion she's not a very good captain after all.
  • Later, she receives a note to come to Canterlot Square. To her surprise, she finds a mess of reporters... and Spitfire.
  • Her questions what this could mean are answered when Fleetfoot comes down, Soarin' in tow. To everyone's surprise, Fleetfoot comes clean about her drug selling.
  • She admits fault, that Spitfire had nothing to do with it, and pledges to give up her surprising fortune to get those who had used her stuff back in the air. By doing this, even though she can't be arrested as the drug used was merely imported and there are no regulations for it in Equestria, she loses all her records, essentially wiping her out of anything with the WB's totally.
  • After the reporters leave, Dash asks why. Spitfire reveals that the thing she had told her to do earlier was this, and if she did it, she could join Spitfire's team. With this, Dash realizes that all the wealth and all that didn't mean as much to Fleetfoot as simply being able to fly again.
  • Fleetfoot tells Soarin' to go with Dash, as she knew about the offer, and moves to go with Spitfire, who admits she's going to run her ragged as revenge for how she herself was treated.
  • Understanding her for the first time, Dash stops her, and, shockingly, offers Fleetfoot a chance to come back to the Wonderbolts.
  • At first, Fleetfoot tries to say she'll still go with Spitfire out of loyalty, but Spitty rebukes her and tells her if there's a better offer than scrubbing the toilets, take it. Then she leaves.
  • Tearfully, Fleetfoot says she'll be five minutes early, and can look to the sky and dream again.
  • Gambling might have a job!
  • At the Kingsmoot, Pennydrop makes her grand entrance, breaking tradition and the sacred ground as she lands her airship.
  • She ignores the Seer after blasting the other kings, walks right up to Gwen, and reveals Lavan is on the way.
  • She calls out the Seer, telling her that her gods were merely using their citizens as puppets for some test, uncaring if they get sacrificed like they did against Chitania. She makes her case to let her and her company handle it.
  • She declares she stands with Gwen's family, and nobody else, so if they kick her off the throne, she will not use her machines to help them.
  • After some strange force overtakes her, the Seer reluctantly allows this. She declares that if Pennydrop can manage to stop Lavan from killing anyone or wrecking anything, Gwen's rule is assured. If not, she is to be cast out.
  • Pennydrop Vs Lavan for the fate of the gryphons has begun!
  • The changelings arrive at Ponyville, to no fanfare. MM didn't even bring out the banner, because AJ said to understate it, and forgot just how understatey they can get.
  • Thus, AJ becomes the element of asshole.
  • Celestia and Luna haven't seen Jetset, and wonder if that's how it's supposed to be.
  • SP wants to know who 41's old Queen was, since 41 doesn't know. Apparently, only Chrysalis will know, but he doesn't want to ask her, she's scary.
  • Acty loves blindjokes
  • AJ realizes she forgot to put guards in Ponyville again
  • Luna tries to force-teach 29 lessons. After he outdoes her, he gets a liiittttle too big headed, so she gets pissed and decides she needs to take it up a notch.
  • A lot of notches.
  • A Changeling eats one of AJs apples. She makes him regret it.
  • By making him an apple.
  • Seven comes home to his base with Buttercup, who now has her gun. He also comes home to a special surprise, Fluttershy!
  • Who is PISSED!
  • A battle ensues, which mostly consists of Fluttershy using unbelievable chaos powers against someone in no way capable of defending himself against it. This also escalates thanks to Fluttershy telling BC she needs to load her chaingun.
  • At the end of the fight, she learns it wasn't Seven who scarred Bubbles, the Timberwolf from earlier, and realizes she went too far. Still, she demands to know what is going on, and Seven is going to have to show her.
  • Chitania signs the Librarain's kid's comic. Moms gotta stick together.
  • 42 does not believe Cadence used to be a babysitter.
  • OOCO Pinkie starts her own show where she crashes parties!
  • AB, SL and SB meet back up again at a cafe. Sweetie Belle is dropped off out of the Caribou's cart, and she looks... normal?
  • She claims he has a shower in there to clean her off, since she got sticky, and that she's stuffed so full she can't walk straight, and he also let her keep his fancy pillow.
  • ...Applebloom and Scootaloo do not question this any further.
  • Movie night gets weird fast.
  • Finally, Chrysalis heads down to PV to check on her lings, and notices that they're actually mingling pretty well. She muses that, at this rate, her lings could be absorbed into Equestrian society pretty easily.
  • Reluctantly, she praises Applejack, but has one more thing...
  • She brings up the hypothetical scenario of if Chitania regained the ability to have a hive. In this case, would it make her efforts harder? Make ponies more afraid?
  • She gets the answer of 'yes' pretty quickly, but AJ admits she wouldn't stop it. She remains oblivious to the fact Chrysalis is talking about her own plans to make more Queens.
  • Chrysalis praises her again, and leaves, wondering how much more time she has left to decide...

THREAD 105Edit

  • Big Mac and Granny, after getting spooked by the changeling still being an apple, confront AJ about not visiting them.
  • That's when AJ learns that Applebloom has not, in fact, been at the farm. She panics, naturally, but after she remembers she was supposed to go camping this week, reasons that Applebloom is just moping in her room back in Canterlot since she cancelled so abruptly, and feels bad about leaving her behind.
  • Speaking of Applebloom, she and the other two come across a spooky house in the middle of nowhere during a thunderstorm. Naturally, they decide hypothermia death is probably preferable to going inside.
  • Until the house drops a bowl of candy for them, of course, in which case Sweetie is now all for this shit.
  • After she's snapped up, they feel that leaving Sweetie to die is more preferable than going inside, but it seems Winona has a moral compass. They all get locked in.
  • 29 faces more trials that Luna hopes will teach him lessons. Unfortunately, all they do is confuse and make him annoyed, since he can't follow her string of specific logic, which makes her angry and annoyed.
  • Also, 29 kills a chipmunk in one such 'test', thinking its an illusion... it uh... it probably wasn't...
  • GambLing doesn't know if gambling is illegal... if that makes any sense...
  • Dinner at the CE house with special guest, Stormy Flare!
  • Mane-Iac cheers Chrysalis up.
  • LD is worried about Fleetfoot and Soarin' being back on.
  • Fluttershy finally learns what Seven is doing. It turns out, he's using changeling mind-magic to stimulate parts of the brain of predators in order to give them sentience to understand the concept of 'love' better, hoping to turn them into a farmable resource so that they do not need to drain ponies anymore. He tried with smaller animals like rabbits or the like, but couldn't manage, predators are all that work. We learn he managed this because Bubbles, the Timberwolf, had been experimented on previously for this exact same thing, and that allowed him to move forwards.
  • However, it currently isn't working as planned, he's putting in more love to make them think and advance then he is getting back, which is why he is so frequently sickly.
  • Now, Fluttershy is faced with a dilemma. He is clearly upsetting the natural order and giving minds to things not meant to have them, but he is not hurting them or the like. He asks her if she wants him to shut it down and make it go back to normal, and she flees.
  • She goes to the moon, where she meets none other than discord. During an argument, it's revealed one issue she has with this is that he's changing someone who can't give consent and granting them abilities they may not even want... just like herself.
  • Discord is still bitter because he thought he was helping when that happened, so he doesn't see why everyone is always on his case about that. He brings up a planet to prove the point that chaos is just plain better than order, and that Twilight certainly brought chaos into Fluttershy's life as well.
  • Fluttershy comes to a realization that some chaos IS good, but when it came all at once, she couldn't handle it.
  • Discord admits that he was just trying to help, and she consoles him. Together, they both come to a realization
  • At last, she understands what she needs to do, at least partially, and thinks she needs to go talk to someone.
  • SA and 18 go off on their date, AND... nothing is going wrong. Nothing. Everything is fine.
  • Eighteen is going crazy waiting for the earth shattering kaboom.
  • Applejack is putting the changeling to work down at Ponyville in hilarious ways.
  • Twilight is almost done with her orb-reader thing, and thinks Chrysalis is going to be just so happy about it!
  • OOCO event, Chrysalis and Spike are still under Canterlot, and Chrysalis does not want a gun.
  • AJ has a tender moment with Big Mac
  • Chitania goes down to Ponyville, gets lost.
  • Cadence, without telling anyone, cancelled her plans for the night that prevented her from going out with Shining and 18 because it hit her that she doesn't know if 18 is in disguise, and if two Cadences get seen the jig might be up. She muses that she's been feeling more and more useless lately, and the idea that this could take away her one good thing, that she beings happiness to her subjects, by making them wonder if it's even her helping them is too much.
  • Chrysalis sneaks up on her, and Cadence reacts reasonably... by shooting and then biting her.
  • However, with some prodding, eventually Cadence starts to spill about some fears she's been having..
  • Back at the Gryphon Kingdom, Pennydrop begins her final plans! Just before Lavan can reach the kingdom, she reveals what she's been building this whole time, METAL DEER HAWK... which is odd because it's a giant mechanical gryphon...
  • She engages Lavan in battle, why slyly implying that there was nothing else interesting for him to see. She pulls out all the stops and weapons, none of which manages to actually damage Lavan, but during the course of a desperate act they find out Lavan really fears rainbows for some reason.
  • After a long, drawn out battle, she forces Lavan out of the kingdom with one final, explosive attack, which also doesn't hurt him. However, he understands that's all she had, and decides he's seen everything interesting here and decides to leave.
  • Gwen is overcome with joy to the point of tears that they protected her subjects, and as one the other kings hail the forever more king and queen of Af Gryphonia!
  • Beside them, Pennydrop can't help but feel like it's actually her she's cheering for...
  • Unknown to the royals, they weren't the only ones there. Several airships, hidden from each other too, carrying the dignitaries and royals of others in the world, including Saddle Arabia and the Yaks or what have you, watched the battle, and ask if they want to sign on.
  • Needless to say, they all do, and thus Fawntaine Futuristics gains a lot more customers, and Pennydrop's power... grows.
  • The world is changing.
  • And all the while, Applejack is having fun.

THREAD 106Edit

  • LUNA'S A SEXY TEACHER EDITION!
  • 18 and SA's date isn't going wrong.
  • PD is partying with Gwen and Idris.
  • Vekir comes up to them, and mentions her current quest. Sensing an opportunity to get under Canterlot, PD offers to help Vekir get more signatures.
  • Actarius still does not get 32's innuendo.
  • Applebloom and Scootaloo are quickly captured in Spider web, the walls of the house explode in, other things happen, they end up on a roller coaster through tunnels of horrors, annnnd-
  • It turns out it was all fake, just a haunted house that was supposed to be out of commission but they activated. Sweetie Belle has been hanging out with the guy in charge of it.
  • Everyone laughs it off, and has a good time, content there were no ghosts.
  • ...at least until the house vanished when they left it, so it was totally ghosts. Or aliens, probably.
  • Applejack thinks everything's going too well with the changelings, so of course something bad happens.
  • Chitania shows up with 13 on her back, since the latter apparently wants to visit the others.
  • Ponyville reacts by running for their lives, of course.
  • This is the grave she chose.
  • Chitania, of course, will not leave.
  • 7 reveals to Buttercup he has a plan in case Fluttershy makes the wrong choice.
  • But it proves not to be needed, Fluttershy says she'll let him keep going, but explains that he threw off the balance of Everfree by removing all predators, there needs to be at least some for balance and he must send some back.
  • Seven has a better idea.
  • That better idea is finding a lab where they run unethical/illegal tests on animals, and just freeing them. Fluttershy is for this idea.
  • Chrysalis listens to Cadence rant about feeling unneeded and that she feels selfish for wishing things would go wrong if she wasn't there, but can't offer her any help on feeling better, not knowing how to approach this, and dealing with her own problems.
  • So, she offers to set stuff on fire... that works.
  • They spend the rest of the day blowing up the barren wasteland around the Empire.
  • Pinkie throw a pie in Chitania's face, this works in making her too numb with shock to even get mad.
  • Pommel tries to make Chitania leave his princess alone... it doesn't work.
  • Twilight goes to the Empire to find Chrysalis and tell her the good news that the device is done, but she has already left. She finds 42 instead, and the two are now waiting for her to return.
  • Nothing is going wrong on 18's and SA's date.
  • DT is looking for Twilight to do more Twience stuff, but Twi is already gone. A little put off by being left behind with barely a note, she stomps off, only to be confronted by a well dressed delivery man who gives her a note from Pennydrop.
  • The Nightgard captain at last reveals herself to 56! It turns out she was that super expensive instructor 29 paid for. She says she's considering letting 56 try out for the lunar guard, if he can find the common room!
  • She also needs to hire better effects crews.
  • Dash and Gilda got drunk preparing for drills.
  • Suckerpunch realizes that Chitania would know about 41's mom, and being crazy decides to ask her.
  • Surprisingly, it works. She does know, and will tell her. One problem, 41 doesn't know her moms name, or her real name, or even her power, so Chitania has no way of knowing.
  • So, Chitty tosses her into the air and guesses off the scream... this works.
  • After learning that her mom was Titania, Chitania's rival and frequent giant-monster-brawl partner, 41 is a little... weird, and goes off to sulk a bit.
  • AJ, Pinkie and Chitania get into a banjo duel... yes, you read that right. Those three get into a banjo duel.
  • 12 might be a sociopath.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • The teaching lesson with 29 and Luna breaks down as more and more she contrives situations to teach him, but he never sees it as she does.
  • He continues to belittle and mock her attempts, angry due to her continually putting him down and forcing him into these situations.
  • Eventually, it gets to her, and she realizes none of this is working.
  • In a bit of sadness and despair at failing yet again as a teacher, she goes off, leaving 29 alone.
  • He begins to be haunted be strange shadows, showing him horrible events like everyone leaving him behind. He gets angry at her, demanding to know why she would show him these things.
  • It turns out, she didn't.
  • ...Tantabus did.
  • In her sadness, she felt guilty for what she had done again, and accidentally let it out.
  • The being starts to more directly attack him, battering him in a bout of bug related slapstick, all the while Luna can't bring herself to defend him.
  • He remains strong for a while, but eventually Tantabus gets to him, and uses it's influence to make him wonder if anyone ever actually liked him at all. Luna listens to his words, noticing quite a lot of similarities over his guilt at being part of the invasion and her own as Nightmare Moon. Draining him, Tantabus is almost ready to leave.
  • Seeing her student in peril and the being about to escape at last breaks Luna out of her funk, and she rushes to defend him, trying to convince him Tantabus's influence is a lie and he isn't hated. He doesn't believe her.
  • So, she brings in backup, in the form of the ghost kids. They help 29 out of his state, and break Tantabus's influence long enough that Luna can do battle with it, and at last put her guilt behind her and reabsorb Tantabus.
  • With this behind her, she feels like at last she can teach him a lesson.
  • That lesson? Give him exactly what he wants.
  • An gorgeous Empress who wants his 'services', a life of luxury with her, and no tricks. He is given exactly what he wants.
  • Just one hiccup, he'll have to quit his job with Mayor Mare, and leave Ponyville and everyone in it behind, including 56, as travel would be long and costly, and hard to do with his 'job'.
  • Given everything he wants but realizing he has to give up everything to get it tears him apart inside, as he had believed for so long this isn't merely what he wanted, but what he deserved.
  • When Luna returns him to Ponyville to hand in his letter of resignation, seeing MM, Zecora and Trixie worried about him is the last push he needs.
  • He burns up the letter, and laments that he just woke up from a dream.
  • The dream was nice... but reality is better.
  • Luna, at last, taught her very first lesson.
  • ..And nothing is going wrong on 18's and SA's date- no, wait, Cadence just walked into a liquor store.
  • Shit.

THREAD 107Edit

  • RARITY PULLED OFF THE MASK TO REVEAL... OLD MAN CADENCE!? EDITION!
  • The residents of Ponyville continue to be terrified of Chitania's presence, even if she is occasionally helpful with rabbits. Because she hates rabbits, not because she wants to be helpful.
  • Also, Chitania can't play electric guitar.
  • Mr and Mrs Cake's business is saved by a proud Celestia
  • There's a mob outside Mayor Mare's office that want Chitania gone. Racist comments are made. They eventually are gotten rid of via bribery of wine, cheese snacks and guessing which lotus sister is which.
  • MM and 29's attempts to be rid of Chitania to meet these requests are, sadly, met with failure.
  • Celestia learns about Fluttershy's recent 'activities', and is not pleased.
  • Everyone has their eyes on Chitania, which means the other changelings are free to wander about and get into raves.
  • Yes, raves.
  • 88 is now hitting on Actarius. He still doesn't notice.
  • 10 is off to Stalliongrad!
  • Pinkie throws Chitania a welcome musical.
  • 41, still reeling from her previous discovery of her parentage, is moping in the woods. In there, she is confronted by the mysteriously absent until this point 13.
  • She laments to the unluckyling how lacking she is in comparison to someone who could face Chitania, and that Titania's legacy is the dead last soldier.
  • They have a talk, wherein 13 lays down what she thinks of 41's focusing on her mom and moping about. It is not a good thing.
  • She insists the need to remain strong for her hive, and to be happy that they lucked into a Queen who will accept her despite being a female. 41 shoots back that at least she still has her mom, and 13 gets irate when 41 calls her a princess, declaring she is NOT an heir anymore, she is a member of Chrysalis's. She loves her mom, she will never leave her mom again, but she is an heir no longer.
  • 41 is confused that she doesn't want to be a Queen. 13 brushes this off.
  • 13 points out that her mother was never really a winner, and 41 needs to be better. This, at last, convinces 41 she needs to be more.
  • OOCO, Spike and Chrysalis stumble into a monster nest with a fanged, tentacled monstrosity. Because of course they do.
  • A short battle leaves them trapped, with only one way out. Spike is the distraction, and Chrysalis runs for the exit.
  • But when she gets there, Spike is trapped and about to be eaten since his mega-laser won't go off. Seeing only one chance, she uses the last of her love-stores and shoots it's base, allowing Spike to shoot the thing and kill it.
  • Afterwards, she fall unconscious, completely drained.
  • AJ and Zecora rhyme-off and brohoof. Just because.
  • Spitfire is now tormenting Dash.
  • 56 can smell plots... don't ask.
  • Dadling will wreck a wall to kill a single spider, as he should.
  • 7 consoles a worried Buttercup, who is still afraid she will be forced to go back to 'normal'
  • Applejack goes to visit the farm, spending some time in her old room and reminiscing on how she thought her life would be and the fact she had to leave it so suddenly, she couldn't even grab anything. She finds it covered in dust and old.
  • After a bit of thinking, she decides that maybe a bit of work down there would help out somewhat.
  • She's gonna need another desk.
  • Two can't sleep, because she's starting to worry what might happen if another kid comes into the picture.
  • Still, Sombra calms her down.
  • Sunset wonders what a human Chitania would be like.
  • 77 visits Aj to tell her about his proposal, and Chitania keeps annoying him.
  • Speaking of, Trixie annoys said megabug right back, so... that's a thing.
  • The CMC are race traitors, according to a zebra.
  • Don't ask.
  • 29 goes up to check on 56, who is still looking for the common room. He is at first angry, thinking that 56 gave up on his promise to train hard again, but when he finds out he might actually get into the Nightgaurd he gets a little... worried.
  • 56 is in such a rush, he doesn't even have time to hear about the events with Luna, and rushes off without saying goodbye. Leaving behind a sad, yet proud, 29.
  • But someone is watching all of this...
  • No matter how much AJ and Chitania say nothing is going wrong, nothing is going wrong.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT, EVERYTHING IS GOING WRONG!
  • 18 and SA confront 'Cadence' in the wine shop, and make a stunning discovery! It's not Cadence at all!
  • It's Rarity!
  • ...Yes, that Rarity. She and Twilight have been working on illusion spells that will let them pretend to be each other in case they need to be in two places at once, and she decided to test it out when Cadence left the Empire to get a feel for what the populace feels about Cadence. She wasn't worried about being seen with her, as if Cadence returned she would be able to detect it and find a safe place to drop the disguise, leaving none the wiser.
  • Though 18 and SA are upset, they can't have her drop her disguise. So, they all decide to head back to the castle.
  • ..and that's when Chrysalis teleports in from the snow outside to get herself some alcohol, and guess who she has with her?
  • Cadence! Who is now looking at not-Cadence!
  • In front of the Crystal Empire!
  • That's when everything goes wrong.
  • Cadence's first idea is to tell Chrysalis to 'do something'. Chrysalis, and everyone else, thinks she means 'the thing'
  • The brain thing.
  • She didn't mean that, but too late! Rarity is now in righteous indination mode at the idea Cadence might have been considering brainwashing her subjects to hide her secret.
  • Anger is had on both sides, which almost gets out of control when Cadence thinks it's 18 posing as her.
  • Thankfully, 18 is there to clear it up... and she is accidentally now looking like Cadence.
  • Damn changeling powers.
  • Three Caddy's confuse the Crystal Ponies something terrible.
  • More aruging is had, with Cadence insisting she's the real Cadence. Nobody is sure, but a Crystal Pony has an idea!
  • Because this morning, the REAL princess helped him file paperwork and figure out zoning regulations! Surely only the REAL princess would know what and where that was!
  • Thus Cadence shuts up real fast.
  • Things go from bad to worse when he realizes that EIGHTEEN is the real princess! How?
  • She still has the gum he stuck in her hair, that has been hidden because it's the same color as said hair. Nobody else noticed.
  • Eighteen immediately tries to spin this, and almost has the CE convinced, but Rarity is having none of that!
  • She makes 18 drop the disguise, and then reveals herself! Now all of them know that it wasn't Cadence who did that!
  • Cadence panics a bit and tells Chrysalis to bail, so she does, bringing everyone with her.
  • Then comes a whole lot of yelling at an unrepentant Rarity.
  • Rarity explains she chose Cadence for a reason. After the events with Buttercup she realized that the public has a terribly skewed perceptions of royals, and she needed to know how bad. Since she knows how much, or rather how little, Cadence does, she needed to see if there was any indication anyone thought she didn't do EVERYTHING herself. There was not.
  • So, when Cadence tried to rehide the secret, Rarity was having none of that. She wanted to give credit to who deserved it, 18.
  • Who is also threatening to murder her, and meaning it, if this ends up with the CP thinking she's infiltrating the CE and gets her kicked out, which Rarity had not considered.
  • Before the strangling can begin, Chrysalis tosses her down into the pen that Sunset used to be held in so she can't fuck everything up anymore, then she says she has a plan to get things back to 'normal'.
  • But, to everyone's surprise, Cadence says no, they're not going to do that.
  • Chrysalis tries to insist, but Shining says they can manage if she just wants to come clean. After some debate, Chrysalis still thinks her plan is right, but will go along with everyone else. Cadence decides not to cover it up.
  • After Twilight and 42 arrive an get brought up to speed, she says why. She doesn't have a plan, she just isn't bringing anyone else down with her. The others realize this might end with her gone, and Chrysalis agrees that if she goes, then her and the changelings sure as hell aren't staying.
  • All alone, Cadence goes off to face the music, with the CE crew, and a very sleepy 2, left to wait.
  • She goes off to face her destiny, and all of the others just have to.. believe.

THREAD 108Edit

  • RARITY WHAT DID YOU DO EDITION!
  • Cadence, despite her wishes not to, is at last forced to speak to all the citizens of the CE about what she's been doing. She admits everything, from how little she's done, to how much 18 has done, all the while insisting that she hasn't been replaced or mind controlled. She admits, to everyone's horror, that she doesn't know how any of this works.
  • She pleads with them not to lose hope or trust, but it seems not to be working. They start talking and seem to be leaning towards kicking her out, and the changelings with her.
  • Until, out of nowhere yet again, Rarity shows up!
  • She tells the crowd she didn't reveal this so they wouldn't believe in Cadence, but to show that they weren't gods, or special, or anything like that. They're regular ponies, who struggle sometimes and need help. She admits that she did it the wrong way, but her intentions were real.
  • She points out that, despite their fears, their lives have been getting better and they've been in more comfort than ever before.
  • Eventually, her words get through to them, and the ponies decide not to impeach her or retaliate.
  • But the trust is gone.
  • Resolved, Cadence decides right then that if they needed her to be more... she was going to be more.
  • During this, Chrysalis insists she doesn't want to go anywhere that Cadence and Shining aren't.
  • Afterwards, while debating over what it is they need to do, they all realize that, right now, they don't need to do anything as nobody has made any requests, and acting in preparation for windfall or the like would be an accidental admission of guilt.
  • So, they can't do anything but wait.
  • Celestia then shows up, happy because she has a lava cake big enough to ride... and of course, now has all that ruined.
  • This is why she is never happy.
  • Rarity isn't sorry for what she did, and Twilight isn't mad at her.
  • Cadence puts Two back to bed, and explains to her what happened. When Two says she's a good princess, Cadence resolves to prove her right.
  • 42 speaks to Chrysalis, revealing that she knows Rarity was right, but she still wants to hit her.
  • After she leaves, Chrysalis is confronted by Shining to make sure she's not doing anything for revenge. She's not, but she is looking at the orb and saying she's going to protect her lings...
  • Chitania almost gets called for jury duty.
  • Actarius is still oblivious to 32 and 88.
  • 29, still moping from his interaction with 56, meets up with 32, who points out that the real reason he is sad is because he did too good of a job as a 'cousin'. 56, despite being a scatterbrained ninny, somehow found purpose and guidance thanks to him, and now 29 is worried he won't be needed anymore.
  • 32 has a long talk with him, eventually putting those fears to rest, all the while hitting on 29, and 29 heads back to Ponyville.
  • Back in Ponyville, Sunset and him meet up, and find they have a mutual love of the fine arts, a rare thing.
  • A budding friendship begins. A friendship wherein Sunset asks him to look like a human, just cause.
  • Spitfire is driving Dash crazy, as she says to AJ.
  • Some of the changelings get a little tipsy thanks to Treehugger.
  • 7's experiments continues with Fluttershy's help.
  • the CMC come across an old guard who has been fighting 'droids' for years. Instead of being crazy, he's actually fighting golems and has just been calling them the wrong name... yay?
  • Back in Canterlot, Fuzzy and Buzz accidentally are the first ones to break the news of what happened in the CE. Things... do not go well.
  • Canterlot is freaking out.
  • Then Ponyville is freaking out.
  • Then a Wonderbolt tells AJ, while freaking out.

She has the bodies dug up and burned, despite Spike's protests, in order to preserve their changeling tradition, and then they reclaim the banner. Afterwards, Spike reveals that he had already been in contact with the others and gotten hold of some supplies, including a love-harness. Using this, they head back to the surface.

THREAD 109Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP! PANNIIIICCCC EDITION!
  • The Crystal Ponies are lamenting their lost trust, in strange ways in some cases.
  • Spike using a gun does not calm down anyone. Nor are his debate skills up to par, as he is ran over.
  • Also, his manners need work, as was silently told to him by private... FUCK!
  • But no fear, for an old friend is here to help! DIAMOND TIARA has arrived! And she has a giant set of power armor!

  • One of the temps from Partyland return to talk to 18. She describes how she used to think Cadence was beyond reproach, even going so far as to join a fanclub, after that day. To the point that she quit her field, thinking she just couldn't match up to a princess like that.
  • Learning 18 was 'just' a changeling has changed her ideas slightly, and she now wants a job.
  • Everyone in the CE Crew is sad, so Chrysalis cheers them up with tapdancing... yes, tapdancing.

  • Jugglejack wants to be in with Actarius, but a mob is blocking the way. There's only one thing to do..
  • BECOME THE JUGGLE BALL AND BE JUGGLED INTO THE BUILDING
  • Yes, he makes it in. No, nobody is sure how he gets inside a sealed building. His explanation? "Fucking holes". That's it.
  • 32 starts to feel better, so of course ponies mob him. And 88 won't let him in.
  • Over in Apploosa, they hear news of the reveal!... And do not give a FUCK.
  • Cause 55 wanted them to eat a big old meal with the buffalo as friends, and they're eating a big old meal with the buffalo as friends, and anyone who thinks he's trying to infiltrate anything is right stupid.
  • AJ is lamenting the loss of all her hard work, Chitania meanwhile rubs it in that she saw it coming.
  • Aj snaps, chews her out and punches her. Yes, punches her. Then she tells her to fuck off so she can fix things.
  • After the requisite punch back, Chitania does indeed leave to go get her daughter, and AJ vows to prove her wrong.
  • PJ and Blueblood are sticking together.
  • When Ponyville is ready to chuck out 29, it's up to Trixie to distract them! With a show!
  • When that fails spectacularly, she switches tactics. As in, she starts hurting herself... a lot.
  • It works.
  • OOCO Spitfire tricks Dash into eating her underwear.
  • Applejack panics just a bit more, and granny tries to calm her down to no avail.

  • Cadence is trying her hardest now.

  • Chrysalis realizes the world is changing, things are no longer going uphill as they had been, and she needs to change with it.
  • Chitania notices that things are happening like they did before. Only this time, she's ready for it.
  • The Wonderbolts are now suspicious about each other.
  • Big Mac needed to check to make sure AJ was AJ.
  • Spitfire is assured she's not getting fired.
  • Celestia and Luna see the mob seeking answers, but realize the truth might do more harm.
  • Applejack is totally lost on how to deal with the mob surrounding the changelings, she doesn't know what to do at all.
  • And, finally... Pennydrop has arrived in Canterlot.
  • OOCO, Spike and Chrysalis make it out of the cave, and learn that this was all a big trick to get them to be nice to each other. They are, understandably, ticked. They leave, deciding to go to Pony Joes, and then have a talk. Afterwards Spike talks with AJ and Celestia about his problems, and they help him along. Finally, Spike decided to be more optimistic, and shoots his mirror... don't ask.

THREAD 110Edit

  • AJ HAS HAD ENOUGH OF YOUR SHIT EDITION!
  • Chitania goes over to retrieve 13 so she can leave, but her daughter is unwilling to leave her hive behind. Reluctantly, Chitania takes 41 with them and decides to go collect the others.
  • 32 makes it inside the embassy, where he's greeted by JJ, Acty and a 88, the last of whom is still making blindjokes. They decide to hole up and wait for this to pass by playing monopony, the fools.
  • But they get an unexpected guest! No, really, really unexpected. It's Lavan.
  • Lavan comes in and wants to play.
  • Then he wants to know about changelings.
  • Poor bastards.
  • Shining Armor, after having a moment where he is forced to go over 18's work to see which ones were Cadences, decides to look on the bright side of life!
  • Long story short, everyone tells him to get out of their places of work... don't ask.
  • The Crystal Ponies don't know who they go to for outside investigations.
  • Trixie runs out of things to hurt herself with, but that's okay! Because everyone got bored and left a while ago... yep...
  • 29 laments that he's going to have to bunk with Zecora at this rate.
  • Tonight was a bad night for Batmom/Dadling roleplay night.
  • Soarin' proves he's not a changeling by whinnying
  • 2's teacher needs help.
  • 7 and Fluttershy discuss how he gets his love, and it's revealed Buttercup knows what sex is, which makes sense, but still
  • Applebloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootlaoo accidentally turn an already giant war into something worse by activating a super robot.
  • The fillydelphia mayor is happy.
  • 10 infiltrates Stalliongrad!
  • Dash finishes reading the crowd control handbook, but everyone except Bulk left.
  • Twilight asks Rarity if this is what she was hoping for, Rarity bluffs and says she knows it was right.
  • DT can't use any of her cool new toys.
  • Jetset finishes his training, even if he didn't quite get what he wanted, and goes off to go help with Canterlot
  • Arana ran up to Canterlot to help Blueblood
  • Up in Canterlot, while Coltsly is selling so much she can swim in bit and having ethical dilemmas, Pennydrop lands and takes control!
  • She subtly influences the mob, playing on their need to seem high class, to turn them into a more focused force who go off to demand certain answers out of Celestia, the answers they want.
  • Celestia sees them coming, and immediately recognizes something is off. She orders all her guards to stand down so as not to give any impression of oppression, and goes off to meet them herself.
  • She engages in some talks with the mob, carefully thinning the herd so she can determine who is the leader of it all.
  • Through this, she's able to narrow it down to one pony to invite in and discuss these 'requests'.
  • "Miss Pennydrop, would you like to come in for some tea?"
  • ~I would be delighted.~
  • Celestia Vs Pennydrop is go.
  • Back in ponyville, some of them don't even know why they're mobbing, but they're mobbing.
  • Applejack has no idea what to do. Every option seems like a bad one, one that will either end with her exposed and none of her hometown trusting her ever again, the changelings being banished, or even worse. Sunset wants to know what AJ wants, and a desperate AJ asks her what to do. When Sunset cannot answer her, she becomes enrages and demands that Sunny go help watch the lings. Bitterly, Sunset points out that when she left, the thing that hurt the worst wasn't that Celestia hid stuff, it's that she didn't think she could handle it, as right as she turned out to be it still hurt.
  • AJ keeps panicking, keeps trying to think of ways to both protect her hometown and keep her promise to Chrysalis, but can't manage anything while the mob gets worse.
  • She waits too long, and someone else steps up instead...
  • Chitania
  • Chitania mocks the mob when they try to stop her and/or declare that this is proof of an invasion, taunting them by asking what they would do if this was an invasion, since none of them could actually fight her.
  • Eventually, she orders the changelings to come with her, demanding it so they can be taken home. This finally makes AJ snap into action to protect them, but she finds her determination wavering when 13 steps forth and says this was her idea, and that she just wants to get them to safety since Applejack isn't doing anything. She doesn't want to, but if she has to she'll mind control the mob and make them move.
  • The mob agrees to them leaving and says to get rid of the changelings, but Applejack realizes if they get kicked out now, there's no hope of them ever coming back and being accepted.
  • Pommel asks for orders.
  • Sunset asks for her to say something.
  • Chitania demands she do something.
  • Ponyville tells her to do something.
  • The changelings tell her to do something.
  • Then she snaps.
  • Applejack lets out a SHUTTTT UPPPPPPP, goes off into a massive rant wherin she details that all of them are idiots and for various ways, goes into how she didn't even want to be a princess, rants that every choice she makes is wrong and makes everyone hates her, and rants that nothing she does with the changelings works.
  • She declares that since none of her ideas is right, they can decide, and flys off, leaving behind confused and unsure remains.
  • She lands in Everfree, the only option she had left thanks to avoiding her family and Canterlot, and aimlessly wanders until she reaches the old castle.
  • Desperate for something, she heads towards it, figuring that since it had all the answers before, maybe it has one last miracle in there...
  • OOCO, Spike works on his weapons with hilarious results.

THREAD 111Edit

  • AJ CRASHES AT CELLY'S OLD PLACE EDITION!
  • Lavan is slowly driving everyone insane by asking about changelings. Or just by being there. Or accidentally being nice that one time!
  • 18 wants to know if Chrysalis has a plan in case something goes wrong. She does. This, inexplicably, makes 18 feel better.
  • In Ponyville, things are... not going well.
  • With AJ gone, Chitania and 13 makes a move to take the lings. Initially, Pommel and Sunset tries to out talk her, but this utterly fails. After they ask the lings and get from them that they want safety, it looks like they're about to leave.
  • Until Sunset has a brilliant idea, and points out that 29 still isn't there! Despite his nature, 13 does want to protect the entire hive, and that includes getting him to safety. Unable to go off herself, or send her mother, 13 is out of options when Sunset offers to get him herself, even though she knows this is just to stall.
  • 13 says she has one hour to 'find' him before she just sends Chitania after him, and Sunset runs off.
  • Cue a whole lot of awkward small talk from Pommel and Chitania.
  • Also, Chitania is not a fan of Monopony, to put it mildly.
  • Spike and DT have a bit of an... issue.
  • Shinings attempt to hang out with 2 does not go well when Gwendolyn's airship arrives.
  • Cadence, however, is too caught up in trying to be a better royal to go do the diplomacy thing. The thing she's really good at.
  • She sends Shining instead. This is not a good idea.
  • Instead, Gwendolyn bursts in, sends Idris out of the room and starts screaming her head off and insulting Shining for making her trade with a changeling.
  • Then, out of the blue, Chrysalis appears, and asks if that would really be such a bad thing. Since she's been considering staking it out on her own, she outright asks if they ever did if Gwen would ally with them like she did the CE.
  • To her dismay, Gwen vehemently says no, outright comparing Chrysalis to Chitania at her worst and openly declaring she will never ally with changelings.
  • When Shining, a little angry to say the least, asks her what she wants to achieve, she replies she wants every changeling out of the Empire's castle, now and forever, or else she's cutting off trade.
  • Shining absolutely loses his cookies, screaming right back and getting so angry he splits his table in two. He tells her off and orders her to get out of the Empire, and that's that.
  • Chrysalis leaves this abrasive, heading straight for the portal as soon as they're gone while pondering that this would be the case with everyone when she strikes it out on her own. She starts to get into very harsh thoughts, when Shining stops her just before she leaves to Canterlot.
  • He pleads with her to stop, outright begging her not to make the situation worse. Because while he can mitigate the Gwen thing, if she makes it worse, if it gets bad in Canterlot, then he might not be able to do anything. His people might ask her to go, and, as he puts it.
  • "I don't want you to go."
  • Chrysalis is touched by this, calms down immensely, but insists she has to go to Canterlot. But before she does, she promises she won't make the situation worse. All she asks is that he believe her.
  • He believes her.
  • Screwloose knows about Pennydrop entering the castle... somehow.
  • Pennydrop does indeed go in, and a back and forth with Celly ensues when Celly sees through her almost instantly after Pennydrop states she doesn't want to helm the investigation herself. Despite this, Pennydrop plays it off, makes her demands for the investigations and barring all the changelings and changeling associates from the castle, and keeps up with Celestia's verbal sparring. Outright challenging her in one instance, which Celestia doesn't take her up on.
  • But, sadly, Pennydrop gets the upper hand when she says she's going to go out there and tell everyone she agreed to everything, since if Celestia suddenly backed down after that it would look suspicious.
  • Outside, Pennydrop's plan goes off, for a bit. At least until a certain someone steps up.
  • Fancypants takes the reigns! He declares he'll be heading up the investigation, and Pennydrop is forced to agree, despite her wanting someone a little more paranoid. Fancy declares he won't hold back, but Celestia isn't worried.
  • The mob is dispersed and clear, leaving only Pennydrop and Celestia, who shoot barbs at each other one last time, with Pennydrop wishing her a happy vacation.
  • ...Well, the beaches are nice that time of year...
  • 29 tries sneaking. Gets Mission Impossible instead... yep.
  • The CMC fail to stop that thing they did, and A strange new challenger appears!
  • 7 meets up with his last beast-thing, Blossom, who is quite a lot smarter than the others and tailing... something.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Applejack is in Everfree Castle, going over the events that transpired and what brought her here.
  • She has a hallucinatory conversation with Celestia, just like old times.
  • She thinks back to her parents and if they would be proud of her.
  • She questions what brought her to lie in the first place, and for so long
  • And, finally, in desperation, she turns to the Tree of Harmony, the thing that helped her out so long ago, to maybe have an answer to solve this situation.
  • One problem.
  • It's not talking to her.
  • ...Because it's a tree.
  • Didn't think this through all the way.

THREAD 112Edit

  • APPLES SOLVE EVERYTHING EDITION!
  • Jetset on his way back to Canterlot meets up with a most unexpected guest. None other than 56, booty lover himself!
  • Jetset, his phasing powers still quite unstable, tries to escape him to no avail, and while being caught he hears from someone else who he would rather not see. Someone most... 'Professional'
  • Lavan continues his quest to make everyone crazy!
  • After they throw a paper airplane into her eye, Chitty and the others have had enough of 41's and SP's shit, and tie them up.
  • 29 is worried about 56
  • SA lays the bad news on Cadence about their trading partners, while Cadence assures him he probably did all he could.
  • Lucky brings up to Chitania that she should be getting paid for her comic.
  • Also, Chitty never wondered if she can shrink down.
  • Chrysalis is determined not to make things any worse.
  • Celestia fills everyone in that they will be having some time off. They all wonder what they're going to do in their time off.
  • Luna doesn't know, but she's taking her bed.
  • Idris, on his way home, discovers that his two eldest children have stowed away on the airship, leaving Siegfried behind to be harassed by Handydog
  • Many jokes ensue about them creeping out him and Gwen.
  • DT blows up Celestia's front lawn with her landing, prompting the princess to blow the thing up.
  • DT's attemtps to put it back together go poorly, and long story short Spike becomes a bomb.
  • The CMC make the giant golem situation worse. Yes... worse.
  • Spitfire assures Shiny if they ever get kicked out and she gets elected, she'll let him live in her house. Clearly, Shiny is appreciative.
  • 7 finds out about the goings on. Finds it unfortunate.
  • Sunset finds 29 and crew, stuffs them in a shack to wait out AJ's return.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Applejack speaks with the tree, pleads and begs it to give her a means to fix everything in her desperation. She asks, and asks, and asks, but it doesn't answer.
  • Because it's a tree.
  • Eventually it gets too much, and Applejack bucks it.
  • That's right, she bucks the Tree of Harmony. She bucks it.
  • And it drops an apple. A red, slightly off color, glowing apple.
  • Before she can even process how crazy that is, someone speaks to her!
  • "Where... are my... changelings.."
  • It seems Chrysalis has found her.
  • Despite her pleas and attempts to explain, Chrysalis nearly hits her, until Applejack says one particular thing
  • "It's not that bad!" and with that, Chrysalis stops.
  • She just stops, seemingly no longer caring. When asked why she's not angry, the Queen says she is still really angry, but it's not that bad so she shouldn't make a deal out of it.
  • After some testing, Applejack puts together that the apples magic is to make anyone who hears her words believe them to be the absolute truth, even though the apple doesn't change reality itself. Anything she says, Chrysalis will just outright believe and never question.
  • She discovers this by telling her that she's not the greatest Queen. Bit harsh.
  • Instantly, Applejack's mind is going, and she says to herself that at last she can fix Equestria! She reasons that with this, she can make all of Ponyville, nay, all the world know the truth that the changelings just want peace, and they'll believe it. She even reasons she can make them believe pretty much anything, including telling the changelings that all they want is peace.
  • But the Apple can only make you believe it, not change who you are, so Chrysalis snaps back into thinking of all the things she needs to do to become the greatest Queen, which Applejack shoots down every one with her truth apple. Despite this, she never stops.
  • When Chrysalis finally asks her what she does need to do in order to be the best Queen, Applejack has to think about that, realizing all the good she can make Chrysalis do if she just focuses her. She ponders, and thinks, wondering just exactly how to make the Queen do what she wants.
  • But when Chrysalis pushes her too far, she realizes that the thing she needs to do is make Chrysalis change, and the only way to do that is to stop her from having someone to run back to.
  • She needs to get rid of her enabler.
  • So, she tells Chrysalis if she wants to be the best Queen, she has to move out of the Crystal Empire.
  • "Fuck you"
  • It seems that the Apple stopped working, or something to that measure, as Chrysalis brushes off this 'truth'. Applejack stops paying attention to her, now focusing on how to make the Apple work again, and what it's limits might be.
  • Chrysalis tries talking to her, but she won't answer. When she gets annoyed with this and reaches for the apple, Applejack snaps, desperate to keep anyone from taking her apple again.
  • And by that, I mean she punches Chrysalis with everything she has.
  • "That was very stupid."
  • Things have gotten really crazy.

THREAD 113Edit

  • CHRYSALIS BEATDOWN EDITION!
  • Screwloose and 12 celebrate their two week anniversary. It's... weird.
  • SA and 42 talk about Cadence's progress, and SA reminisces about when she was younger, wilder, more full of energy.
  • 42 wants him to go on.
  • He will not.
  • LD is put in charge of the Wonderbolts while Dash is on leave.
  • Quicksilver likes comic Chitty better.
  • 29, still in the shed, notices Sunset is rather cold. She fills them in on her state, he fills her in on dead orphans.
  • Luna is curious as to what is happening in Ponyville, but is calm when Celestia tells her that Ponyville is more accepting. Still, she heads off to check on something.
  • That something, coincidentally, is Chitanias home. Only, she's not there, it's just Sweet Note behind a bunch of security. SN tells her Chitty will be back in five minutes, but Luna doesn't wish to wait that long. Instead, she's more focused on the disrespect SN gives her thanks to her authority problems.
  • Derpy gives Chitty jury duty via paper airplane. Chitty claims she can't read. Nobody argues her.
  • 42 realizes she hasn't punched anybody in a while, and decides to fight Mane-Iac, because.
  • Daw finally gets her confirmation that there are pony pods. And they are cool.
  • The CMC discover a possible tactic to stop the golem, pulling out the spears! But before they can, a Zebra named Zebrata beats them to it. A zebra with a terrible secret... SHE IS HALF DONKEY.
  • Yeah, nobody cares
  • Then she gets zapped because a shield is protecting the spears.
  • Neat.
  • Back in ponyville, time runs out, and Chitania sets out to find 29, Pommel right on her tail.
  • 29 hears her coming and welcomes death.
  • OOCO, Spike continues to test Twilight's flying apparatus with hillarious results that end with him in pain.
  • He reveals that he's only doing it to spend more time with her, which is adorable.
  • BUT SCREW ALL THAT BECAUSE IT'S THE MAIN EVENT
  • Applejack regrets hitting her, but knows she had to do it in order to save Equestria.
  • But when Chrysalis advances on her, all bets are out the window, and she goes full defensive. To the point when lassos and bucking rocks at her don't work, she turns to another means of attack.
  • In desperation, AJ uses magic, getting in a devastating blow to Chrysalis' stomach before shooting her against a wall.
  • Thanks to this moment, she manages to learn via winging it how to manipulate rocks and dirt, and eventually even 'call' to roots and vines in the ground in devastating earth based attacks.
  • When just relying on magic doesn't work and she gets cornered, she uses something else, flight. She's unsteady, she can't fly very well, but with Chrysalis on her tail she figures out how to go fast!
  • Thus begins an aerial battle, with AJ using her skills together for the very first time!
  • Despite the massive struggle and devastation, she's no match for Chrysalis one on one. She's forced down after a terrible blow, and it looks like Chrysalis is going to take the apple.
  • At the last second, Applejack tells her she can't take that apple, and to her surprise Chrysalis doesn't! It seems the Apple is working again!
  • After a quick shot to get her away, the tides completely turned. Aj uses the truth powers to devastating effects, forcing Chrysalis to miss every shot, ram into walls, all while she batters her with spells and attacks big and small!
  • Eventually, she even takes away Chrysalis's ability to fight back, when she tells her that her magic will set off a methane leak, and her wings will pop off if she tries to fly, which Chrysalis accepts as truth.
  • After a furious beatdown, Chrysalis can just barely stand, and AJ puts the final nail in the coffin'.
  • "It's pointless to keep fighting. You want to give up."
  • "...It's true."
  • It looks for a second like Chrysalis might quit, might give up, but instead... she charges her!
  • Even without her wings or magic, she fights on as Applejack unleashes magic like she's never done before, roots and vines and stones and even a giant hammer made of root and stone beating the Changeling blue, but she never gives up.
  • Never, until somehow, some way, she catches Applejack at a weak moment, and steals the apple.
  • Only, after all the attacks, Chrysalis does not even have the strength to shoot the apple and destroy it.
  • Angry at her, Applejack makes a chilling demand to the downed changeling.
  • "Chrysalis... either you give me that apple right now..."
  • "Or Ah'm gonna kill you."
  • It's almost over.

THREAD 114Edit

  • THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN OF ULTIMATE DESTINY EDITION!
  • Luna is offended by what Sweet Note said, but drops it when she sees Celestia packing a swimsuit while talking about going to the Empire. That seems more important. So she goes off to confront Shining about this.
  • To her dismay, the portal to the Empire is closed. Still at least she gets to see Celestia with her hoof stuck in a pickle jar.
  • Discord talks to Twilight about just snapping his fingers and giving Spike wings. He refuses, for chaos reasons
  • But it seems Twilight has a solution, a mutagen of some kind, but she won't use if for way more obvious reasons.
  • Chitania, while using her changeling detection abilities to search for 29, finds a changeling alright, just not the one she was looking for.
  • 77 is not amused, it's the middle of the damn night.
  • Also, he missed all of that, because he is a heavy sleeper.
  • Chitania brings him to a less than enthused 13 before setting out again.
  • Red is happy everyone else is leaving, but convinces primrose to stay.
  • 42 and SA spar and talk about the populance being worried. Along the way, 32 mentions that if SA were being mind controlled like they fear, she'd punch Chrysalis.
  • Twilight tries to cheer up Rarity to little effect.
  • Dadling cheers up an upset Batmom, who is being kicked out during the investigation, with promises of beach sex.
  • Chitania can't divine 29, likely due to Sunset, so she picks another method to find him, turning into a bloodhound to sniff him out.
  • Yes, she still has terrible stupid colors.
  • Cadence still won't pay attention to Shining.
  • Fluttershy leaves 7, promising to tell Chrysalis he's alive.
  • Lavan agrees to go fix 88's eyes, but he needs to take her somewhere else to do it.
  • Chitania finds 29, but is blinded by Trixie's lights.
  • A chase ensues throughout Ponyville, with Pommel and Sunset trying to stop Chitania in her Titan form from catching 29, to little avail. They can't phase her, and Sunset can't drain her.
  • But it all proves pointless, as she accidentally herds him into the mob. Or not accidentally. Just mobs are involved.
  • Fluttershy meets back up with Twilight and Rarity, and hears what happened.
  • The CMC's adventures come to a close! After a long, hard, fierce fought battle, theyyyyy... completely fail to pull out the spears and stop the golem before it prepares it's earth destroying attack.
  • But thankfull, they don't have to! Because none other than the greatest their of them all VEKIR is there to save the day and run off!
  • The Golem collapses, and the day is saved!... And it turns out the CMC have been going the wrong way this whole time.
  • Because of course they have.
  • Oh, and Vekir runs off with the legendary spears, because of course she does.
  • Finders keepers.
  • Jetset has a... phasing accident involving a branch, let's just say.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT AND HOLY SHIT IT'S BIG!
  • Applejack's threat of killing her carry's over, even if she didn't think she actually could do it. She knows how bad it sounds, but also accepts there is a bigger picture to this than just the Queen.
  • This comes to Chrysalis's dismay. She had been hoping that Applejack would snap out of being crazy without the Apple. Even as Applejack continues to threaten her, she knows what she has to do now.
  • Which, to AJ's horror is stick the apple in her mouth to bite it, but she stops from biting down when Applejack screams in horror and declares to Chrysalis that she just destroyed Equestria.
  • Despite her thoughts, she asks Applejack to continue. AJ tries to be vague about it and tells Chrysalis just to trust her, but she won't no matter what is said. She tries enough she becomes angry, and in a fit of that anger she lets it slip that the changelings aren't safe.
  • Chrysalis puts together what the Apple can do soon after that.
  • While initially horrified she was mind controlled, Chrysalis eventually begins to think of all she could do with a magic that lets anything she say be taken as absolute fact. Her dreams grow bigger and bigger, until she has thoughts of a world as she envisions it.
  • But, when she gets to Shining Armor, something happens.
  • The thought of using it on him, or any of the CE, honestly seems to disturb the Queen, to affect her so much that she loses focus for just a second, and loosens her grip on the Apple long enough for Applejack to strike it out of her mouth.
  • "Ah' believe this is mine"
  • With that settled, she drags Chrysalis into the cave with the Tree of Harmony to keep her safe while she goes to 'save Equestria'. But Chrysalis won't stay down, unwilling to let Applejack use the apple on Shining.
  • When Aj argues her, Chrysalis says there has to be another way.
  • Applejack is enraged by this, asking her why she always has to take the hard road when it clearly doesn't why. Why not take the easy road that would fix it once, fix it forever for sure, instead of the slow way that keeps getting sent back to square one all the time?
  • More to the point, Applejack brings up that all of this, the suspicion and fear, is because of Chrysalis. Without the invasion, this wouldn't even be an issue.
  • She does not deny that, instead accepts that it's her fault. Still, Chrysalis can't give up, because Shining believed in her when she said she would not make it worse. When Applejack asks why that's so important, Chrysalis claims she can never understand.
  • The argument rages, but eventually Chrysalis declares that if she wants to leave, she had to knock her out by hitting her in the head. She grabs on and will not let go otherwise.
  • AJ says that every second she holds her, the changelings are in danger, but she won't let go.
  • We don't see what happens, but AJ later walks to Ponyville, alone, still thinking she needs to use the Apple to make everyone understand.
  • She comes to the town to find them in the middle of accusing Twenty Nine of being an infiltrator and forcing him with the others despite his protests.
  • Seeing such a familiar place with such familiar ponies acting so teribly wrong strikes a chord in her, hitting her deeply when she realizes that all that fear, all of it, was her fault, and it was her fault because they can't believe in her anymore.
  • She eventually speaks up just before the changelings can leave, asking them to stay just long enough for her to say her piece.
  • She talks to the town about how much it meant to her when she was the dependable one, when she was someone they could always count on no matter what. When she became a princess, she was always afraid of changing, and at some point, she must have.
  • She admits she knew about the thing with 18, and didn't care. It was working, taking some of the burden off and making her life easier. That was all she ended up caring about, getting it done so she could move on because otherwise it seemed like the work would never stop.
  • She admits her fears about the changelings, and her disgust at herself for waiting so long to help fix their reputation.
  • And, finally, she admits that if they don't believe in her, this isn't going to work. Being a princess is built on them trusting her, that's why they pay taxes and the like. If they don't, then she needs to call it quits.
  • And, throughout all of it, she never uses her words in a way that could set off the Apple.
  • Finally, she asks, if they can believe in her.
  • Some do.
  • Some don't.
  • There is no one belief.
  • ...and that is fine.
  • Afterwards she asks the changelings if they can forgive her for abandoning her, if they still think she can help them or should she just give up.
  • Some still believe in her, some don't. There is no one thought.
  • And that is just fine.
  • But, they do concede that maybe they should just wait until the Queen says something. They can give her that much, at least.
  • She didn't fix everything in an instant, it's not all done.
  • But Applejack has won.
  • She's planted her seeds, and she's going to help them grow.
  • Afterwards, she meets up with Chrysalis, who is revealed to have dragged herself clear from Everfree.
  • They talk, and Applejack reveals that all through it, she wanted to just stop and use the Apple, to get it over with and be done. She reveals the temptation was so strong, and it still is now. Finally, she asks if that's what it's like for Chrysalis.
  • Chrysalis responds "...Yes. Every Day."
  • They both conceded they need to get rid of the Apple, only Applejack accepts she can't do it. It's too tempting, and she wants to use it still even now.
  • Chrysalis understands, and Applejack asks her how she gave it up.
  • The Queen admits she couldn't... not alone.
  • They burn the apple away, Applejack giving the Queen magic to do so, and Aj prepares to leave.
  • But Chrysalis stops her, and reveals that inside of the Apple had been strange seeds. Ones that were glowing like the Apple was, but seemed less... malevolent.
  • AJ aks her why she revealed this, and Chrysalis said it might just be best sometimes to be a little... 'honest'.
  • When she gets them, a strange 'something' passes by AJ's vision.
  • Thanks are had, and the princess tells Chrysalis that Shining was right to believe in her.
  • They shake hooves and it seems like something has changed.
  • Aj sets off to get the changelings to the Empire, but Chrysalis is going to just fly home, leaving the lings in her care. Before she leaves, however, she has to point out that Applejack's armor is a little late for Nightmare Night.
  • That's right, she was wearing the armor the whole time.
  • They both laugh, and set off on their ways. AJ to get the Armor off and get the lings home, and Chrysalis...
  • To the place where everybody knows her name.
  • The hard part isn't over, Applejack knows it, it's going to be a long road...
  • But she won't walk it alone.

THREAD 115Edit

  • ON THE TRAIN AGAIN EDITION!
  • AJ, despite her efforts from many, cannot get her armor all the way off, and decides to live with it.
  • Refusing to let that get her down, she resolves that, instead, she's going to be a better princess! To try harder than ever before, to be the mare she was always meant to be! She was going to march up to Canterlot, and-
  • CRASH
  • ...And learn from Dash that, in fact, that's not happening.
  • And then she must scream.
  • Meanwhile, SA questions what could have happened to the unconscious Chrysalis, getting zero helpful answers from anyone.
  • 41 and SP lament they missed the lucha show.
  • 13 walks in when Chitania hires a certain mailmare to fly to Canterlot to go tell Sweet Note to get on the train that will take them to the Empire. She learns this is because Chitania isn't willing to leave her even for a moment, and the two bond over it.
  • Chrysalis wakes up and is immediately questioned by Shining Armor. She continually asserts she didn't make it worse, but Shining cannot care about any of that. He openly admits that he never cared about it for them, but because he was worried something was going to happen to her. Again and again, he questions Chrysalis who hurt her, but Chrysalis merely dodges the question and blows him off, acting as flippant as ever.
  • Still, eventually she convinces him everything is okay, and he admits he doesn't need to make her promise not to mess anything up intentionally anymore, he trusts her now.
  • Later, 42 asks if she requires an assassination.
  • 32's embassy is being shut down, so JJ convinces him to go to the Empire to show he's okay, never knowing that Chrysalis sent a spy to go make sure of that already.
  • Quicksilver is not cleared of his debt. In fact, he somehow makes it way worse.
  • Lavan takes 88 on a wild adventure! While trying to fix her eyes in a desolate wasteland, they literally pop right out of her head and roll off...He's not very good at this.
  • Blind and reliant on Lavan to direct her, she gets into all sorts of strange situations when Lavan's magic makes it grow giant mushrooms everywhere the eyeballs land.
  • She bounces around and eventually ends up underground, where she meets up with a strange mole... who is talking.
  • This is gonna be a weird ride.
  • 56 learns from Harshwhinny that the Lunar Guard captains name is Mourning Mist... yes, you read that right.
  • Yes, she is a complete fruitcase.
  • AJ feels sorry for herself for about half a second before Dash knocks her out of it by pointing out that she went full Rarity.
  • Sweet Note is so happy she's going to the Empire that she is literally swinging on Chitania's horn.
  • She is literally doing that, swinging on her horn.
  • Also she is super catty with 32.
  • 2 tries to keep Cadence company, but can't sit still.
  • Twilight lost the keys to her tanks.
  • Mane-Iac is mad that Chrysalis was in a battle and didn't invite her.
  • Pommel wonders if he should say something to a sad 29, 77 tells him not to bother, as he'll only make it worse.
  • Celestia bursts in while Shiny is lamenting what a terrible day he had, ready for fun and excitement!
  • Then he has to tell her about Chrysalis.
  • She is not happy.
  • Pennydrop sends Flash and Fizzle on an assignment to go force the mare who's seeing 7 to break up with him.
  • LD tries to be intimidating, Bulk makes this hard.
  • The others, not including AJ, wonder what to do with their free time, and Pinkie insists they go have fun.
  • Even though Celestia tries to chew out Chrysalis, the bug queen laughs her off and won't tell her what happened. She gets up despite Celesita's protests, and says she's going to meet the lings when they arrive.
  • Shining is less than thrilled about this, and tries to take her back to be via force, but she convinces him not to.
  • MM is wallowing in the pity of not being a good mayor.
  • Then Trixie jinxes it and now MM is being investigated since, you know, her situation is eerily similar to the CE's one.
  • She cries harder while Zecora stangles Trixie.
  • Rarity and Spike talk about their relationship, and Spike admits he never really moved past her, and Rarity admits she wishes things had been different before resolving to go talk to AJ.
  • The Crystal Ponies are worried about 18 or the royals being influenced in some way, but don't want to look like dicks by kicking out the guys who keep saving them to find the answers.
  • So, they hatch a plan...

THREAD 116Edit

  • TO THE BEACH WE GO EDITION!
  • AJ considers trying to use her magic some more, but keeps getting interrupted.
  • 88 continues her wild trek, following the mole Clay into a weird underground city, where he takes her to meet the mysterious 'Birdie', who oversees it all.
  • But when the group arrives in the stalactite that houses her, they find that unlike what you would expect, she's not a bird at all! She's a pony!
  • More specifically, CANARY GEM! She's the one who 88 replaced when she awoke after being taken over, and Canary is none to happy about it, attempting to kill her with a trap door!
  • ...But 88 can fly.
  • So, instead, a fierce battle begins between the two while Lavan and Clay look on! Their anger keeping them going while Raging on!
  • And on... and on... and on... and on... and- we'll come back to that one later.
  • Two notices all the Crystal Ponies marching and bugs Cadence about it.
  • 56 continues his time with Jetset while making his way to the castle, noticing it looks quite weird from here.
  • But, before they can make it, they are confronted! By none other than... A CHANGELING...Just a changeling infiltrator, not named yet.
  • They say they're going to take 56 to the Empire, but he's having none of that! He kicks that ling right between the legs... and it turns out it's a mare.
  • Even Jetset calls Bullshit.
  • A battle begins with 56 struggling not to be caught so he may reach the castle and find the Common Room, but just when all seems lost, he is saved by none other than the Nightgard Captain herself with a dynamic kick! Mourning Star!... Who's real name is Potsticker, but she felt that was not befitting a night gaurd.
  • She brings Jetset and Harshwhinny up to date with the goings on, and then realizes she's made a terrible mistake when she finds out the changeling she just beaned in the head wasn't an invader...
  • And is pissed.
  • SA helps Chrysalis make it to the train station to meet the others, and all watch with bated breath for them to arrive! Chrysalis's eyes go narrow, and she hungers for-
  • CRASH! CRASHCRASHCRASH!
  • ...It turns out Shining forgot to turn off the shield for Twenty Nine, and terrible things have happened.
  • After that mess, AJ and Chrysalis confront each other, and bicker like AJ was her roomate and she brought back a scratched CD, instead of foes. The others are not complaining.
  • Chrsysalis asks her to take the changelings back to the Stadium, as she's not up to talking to them right now because of rockpunchrealted reasons, and AJ agrees, both leaving amicably.
  • While doing so, AJ is confronted by the changeling with the potted plant, who asks her if this is the end, since there's no room in the Empire for his plant with all the land taken. AJ assures him, and insists if there's no land here, he'll have to set out and find it, wherever he can to let his plant grow.
  • And she's gonna help him.
  • Back at the train, Pommel, 32 and 77 are helping the now slightly depressed 29, who will not blink. He just won't.
  • In helping him, they have him run over by rampaging ponies, dropped in front of a train, and then face down in a fountain.
  • They are not good at this.
  • But Sweet Note is having fun with Chitania and 13 and having a ball in the Empire, that's nice.
  • While walking away with Chrysalis, Shining is confronted by his entire populace, who all have something to say.
  • And that is that it's a very special, totally not made up holiday! Yep! This absolutely real and in no way made up so they can have Shining and co out of the castle holiday is how the CE ponies show their royals how good a job they're doing by sending them all on a trip, and if they did a good job they go to a nice place! That makes sense!
  • This holiday that is SO REAL means all the upper CE government get the time off, so everyone has to go! Everyone! Including Chrysalis who they are including to show they consider her one of them and totally for zero other reasons! It's so real!
  • Having no choice, Shining humors them, and decides to take the time off, thinking they just need some time to assure themselves their royals can be trusted.
  • It takes some convincing, but he gets Cadence and Chrysalis to agree to go, with the others including Celestia needing no argument.
  • Pinkie seemingly gets impatient as one by one the main six arrive to get on the train, but it always turns out to be something else.
  • Until the end, that is, when it turns out she was being impatient. Huh.
  • Long story short, she got a hearshy kiss, and now it she and the other four traveled to the Empire on Centitrain and picked AJ up... yep.
  • Fancry begins his investigations! First off hiring some assistants. Such as a Mrs and Mr Hackaway.
  • Who are totally not 12 and Screwloose.
  • He is then called down to the cells, where he is spoken to by Flim and Flam, who try to pitch their sorting machine to speed up his search. It's good in theory, not so much when they realize they can't get it out of the cell
  • Their breakdown realizing is interrupted when a certain someone is found in the castle, someone who scrams "SPIDER NOISES!" a lot.
  • Arana and Blueblood are questioned, and it's determined they're officially POI thanks to where Arana lives and what she's capable of.
  • So, despite the fact they're terrified with her, she's rooming with flim and flam!
  • 32 tells Chrysalis all about the new ally he's made!... And the fact he let Lavan take 88 to restore her sight.
  • When 77 goes to tell Chrysalis he's okay, she is using him like a basketball, and 77 is not mad.
  • BUT! 32 convinces them both to give Lavan a chance, and if she does not return, Chrysalis can punish him however she wishes, but if he does, Chrysalis has to provide a cake... that 77 and Chrysalis has to make.
  • Nobody remembers Actarius, except 41 and SP... who punch him.
  • Applejack does not question it when the other main five and Spike arrive, and have her bags all packed and ready for a trip.
  • She just gets on the fucking Centitrain.
  • Chrysalis tells the changelings not to fuck up.
  • After finishing packing, Shining, Cadence, Two Chrysalis, 18, 42, Spitfire, Sombra and Mane-Iac all head out to the train station!... Two gets a hold of the controls.
  • This isn't going to end well.
  • But, left behind, all the changelings and Crystal ponies aren't sure what to do at first, giving each other a stare down for a little bit as they assess the other.
  • Then they realize their royals are gone.
  • And decide to party.
  • ...it's gonna be fun.

THREAD 117Edit

  • SUMMER FUN IS SERIOUS BUSINESS EDITION!
  • Applejack never had to do paperwork to update her status when she became a princess... yep...
  • On the first stop, Spike gets everyone snacks... it goes really poorly.
  • 88 continues her wild journey, battling her old persona Canary Gem, and coming to the conclusion that because of what she did, her family never got any closure or a proper burial.
  • So, in exchange for helping her, Canary wants her to go and get her body and tell them everything, and then pay them bits. Lots of bits.
  • Things get weirder when she is sent back on the journey and learns that, of all things, changelings are awaiting her on her next stop!
  • Only, when she meets facsimiles of 32 and 50, her old hivemate, she learns they're not quite the same.
  • Mostly the fact they are very tiny is a red flag.
  • the Main Six and Spike arrive at the destination Pinkie was bringing them to at last! Behold! A beach!... A great big, empty beach, with nothing on it but a tiny little shack.
  • Before they can protest, Pinkie sends Centitrain away, and they have no way of knowing which way civilization was or where they are. But that's okay, because they have each other!
  • They don't have their bags, or anything they brought, but they have each other!
  • And the all have to sleep in the same room, because the shack only has one, with Pinkie on the top looking out for seawolves... which are a thing.
  • A thing that attract seabears, which are a worse thing, apparently.
  • So, they all have to sleep cuddled together on the ground with no sleeping bags.
  • Spike is finding it very hard to keep it in...
  • It's going to be a long trip.
  • Back at the Empire, a crystal pony wants Chitty's autograph on her comic book, but laments that Chitania acts too much like Titania. Try to wrap your head around that one.
  • Pommel and Sunset are not happy when they find out they got left behind.
  • Having had enough of this, and 29's(perhaps justified) moping, 32 says they need to go on a trip of their own! Him, Pommel, Daw, 77, and 29, and of course their friends, to Puerto Burro, a tourist trap. Reluctantly, or not at all but disregarded in 29's case, they agree, and Daw heads off to Ponyille to invite Cheerliee and MM's crew!
  • Meanwhile, the CE crew arrive at their place and find it's actually freaking amazing. A massive beachside villa filled with all sorts of amenities and cool things, even a theater. Without question, they all rush to go have fun with it.
  • All except for one, Cadence. Who remains on the train, focused on her task of learning.
  • Forty Two is tasked with getting her out, but rather than do the social situation, she instead opts to rip the room out of the train and carry it.
  • Speaking of rooms, everyone picks theirs! Cadence is first, running into the office the Villa has and locking/barricading the door after literally slamming it in Shiny's face. Then Chrysalis picks a room, and Celestia, and Eighteen, and Forty Two, and Spitfire, and Two, leaving only one room for Shining and Sombra.
  • Sombra reveals his hidden secret, mouthsand, and steals the last room.
  • Looks like Shiny's sleeping on the floor this vacation...
  • But no matter, because Two wants to see the fishies! By... flying over them.
  • Celestia is forced to be the one to bring her back in, when Shining can't, because... yeah.
  • When daylight comes for the Main Six, Pinkie has created a giant sandcastle, and wishes to have all know of her amazing land which she now controls.
  • Needless to say, war is on, and the greatest battles for ponies begin, with many a water balloon or squirt gun related scuffle to follow in between naming problems.
  • Back in Canterlot, Lingmare who looks like a dude has lost her cookies.
  • A back and forth ensues with the Nightguard captain, until she breaks down at last and grabs hold of her with magic.
  • BUT! The NGC has brought backup!
  • BUT! The Ling knows she beat up most of them(and may have slept with one of their wives) anyway!
  • BUT! Another changeling arrives and points out the first changeling is being stupid. He reasons with 56, pointing out if he goes to the castle he'll be arrested, and guard's can't have criminal records, so 56 decides to wait on his search for the common room, thanking Jetset and Harshwhinny and promising the NGC he'll return to this exact spot so it's not cheating.
  • And the changeling... has herself a little cry.
  • In Ponyville, Daw arrives to tell 29's friends and 77's fiance about the trip! And she totally knows about who those are despite never meeting them!... right?
  • She does not. They didn't tell her. Whoops.
  • However, it does not take long before she gets the information, and after a terrifying visit to the school she finds out MM and crew are already on a train heading to the CE! She chases their train down, and taps on the window... and then Trixie shoots her.
  • Then when she comes back Zecora judo flips her
  • Then MM just tosses icecream into her eyes.
  • Then the whole mess gets cleared up and they all agree to go on a vacation... because that's how that works.
  • Spike is about to go fishing with his gun, when up from the depths! Thirty stories tall! It's Nicezilla!... Who would rather Spike didn't shoot her babies.
  • Spike, wisely, agrees, and she gives him a soycube.
  • Do not ask how Nicezilla gets soycubes in the ocean.
  • The changelings do not know why they are on a fucking beach...
  • Sunset hangs out with chitania, it gets awkward
  • Applejack cannot into magic.
  • Cadence is really struggling with her studies, only managing two forms after several hours and a lot of inner turmoil, as she very much wants to go out and have fun...
  • The CMC may have gotten into illegal pitfighting..
  • Applejack discovers she has a candy bar, and with only pickled vegetables to eat besides... there are gunshots, let's just say.
  • Chitania is not happy when she learns that she is banned from the library from Pommel, making it very clear if this is not lifted, she will have no reason not to attack.
  • Pommel actually stands up to her, saying he's faced scarier, notably Brahmos.
  • She laughs him off, but he points out the real reason why she's not going to attack, and it's because if she did, the CE would help in the fight. If they helped, then Chrysalis would want the Hive to help out her allies. If they helped, and Chitania killed a single changeling... 13 wouldn't forgive her and hate her forever.
  • He says Brahmos wasn't scarier because of what he could do, but because unlike her, he would have done it already, and not cared. He's not worried, because when push comes to shove, she won't attack if it means 13 might hate her.
  • Later, Pommel finds Sweet Note, and shockingly they both realize they come from Baltimare.
  • Only difference is, SN comes from the... less sunny side. Pommel, on the other hoof, doesn't even believe her when she says how bad her place was, thinking that Baltimare didn't have anything anywhere near that bad, and no chance were the guard as bad as she says, he never saw anything like that, and it couldn't have had anything to do with him not going to those parts.
  • Still, when he leaves, he has some doubts...
  • FUZZY AND THE BUZZ RETURN!
  • 77, while preparing for the trip to Puerto Burro, stumbles across something very... odd in the train.
  • Cheese sandwhich.
  • He is there, he has been there the whole time, he keeps missing the stop to Canterlot...
  • He decides to go along when he learns Pinkie isn't there.
  • Meanwhile with the CE crew, weird things are happening in the villa...
  • And with the Main Six, the battle comes to a close after a long day's work, and they decide to rest for the evening as the sun sets.
  • Which is when the shack collapses from all the damage, of course, leaving them nowhere to sleep.
  • They may have gone a bit too far.
  • This is only the beginning...

THREAD 118Edit

 

THREAD 119Edit

  • TWO YEARS EDITION!
  • 88 sets off with mini-77, mini-32 and Lavan on an adventure down a stream! Surprisingly, she does not freak out in the water.
  • It's not long before they stumble across their targets, the Morlocks! Only, things are a little different here. For instance, Vekir is now as tall as Celestia is... so that's a thing.
  • OOCO anniversary stories.
  • Applejack has a crisis of conscious following her... uh... 'event' with the apple, but a dream visit with Celly puts that all to rest!
  • She wakes up hung over as all hell thanks to the rum they found, and her and Dash return back to the hatch to find that in her sleep, Fluttershy summoned exactly 62 giant crabs.
  • Mane-Iac tried to cook... it uh... it did not go well.
  • Cadence continues to work her ass off to better herself, and remains away from the work outside.
  • A discussion on what is healthy for a changeling yields shocking results.
  • Chitania is harassed by a super edgy pony.
  • Fluttershy feels bad about the crabs, but AJ cheers her up.
  • Fancy discovers many shocking things about the castle. Such as, for instance, Coco's story. He's not sure if this counts in his investigation or not...
  • He also learns about the killer robot, who he sends down with Flim and Flam, Blueblood, Arana and the Morlocks. It's getting crowded down there.
  • Fuzzy and Buzz take calls
  • Chrysalis and 18 hate the ocean, but surprisingly not each other.
  • Fluttershy almost gets a hold of the crabs, just one little problem.
  • That problem is a big crab, who escapes, and makes it's way to the CE crew, who it turns out are on the same beach! Of course, Two names it Pinchy and tries to befriend it, despite it being a giant monster crab.
  • This is something that Pinkie finds out or herself when she goes looking for the crab. Upon discovering the others, she... freaks out.
  • Just a little.
  • In that she tears off back, panicks, and shoves everyone inside of the mystery door in her bunker. Which, as it turns out... was hiding a bomb.
  • A really, really big bomb.
  • Pinkie has no explanation for that one.
  • Still, she forces everyone to stay inside, making up bullshit reasons why, for as long as she can. Eventually, though, it gets to her, and she starts to break down.
  • She admits she just wanted it to be like it was in the old days, just them, no big events or princess duties or captain of the WB stuff or whatever, just them, having fun. No adventure, no giant monsters, no Chrysalis, no nothing, just them.
  • She points out they haven't been doing it all together like they did in the past, they handle so much of this solo now, and get caught up in stuff without getting any help, and it's terrible.
  • She realizes it was stupid, but a part of her just wanted to stay there, away from it all, forever. Just them, being the friends they always were, together.
  • One by one, they admit that yeah, they haven't been as together as they were before. However, she was wrong about them doing it alone.
  • They bring up how, even when they were apart, they were never really alone, because a part of their friends was always with them. They could keep fighting only because they knew that someone who cared about them wanted them to fight on.
  • The muse what would happen if they really did decide to leave, how they could, they deserved it. They mused that, if they wanted to, they could just leave it all behind.
  • One by one they realized they would... if the others left. Because they couldn't do it if they weren't together.
  • Which is why they admit, they have to stay, and keep making the world better. But they're going to do it like they should have... together.
  • After...maybe a bit more vacation.
  • Speaking of vacation, Pommel, Daw, 32, the other five guards, 29 and crew, 41, Acty and JJ and Sunset all head off to Puerto Burro!
  • Their reception is uh... both expected, and unexpected.
  • "WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT THING!?"
  • Turns out they've never seen a changeling before, how about that.
  • This looks like the end for the CMC and Vekir! All of them, sans Sweetie Belle, dangling over a pit of acid does not look good! Especially as that crime boss has had enough, since it took an hour to get them up there.
  • But all is not lost! At the last second, the stallion Sweetie went off with bursts in, guns blazing, and saves the day!
  • It turns out Sweetie showed him the magic of friendship or... something... and he has seen the light!
  • ...The CMC and Vekir decide to get the heck out of Detrot, but only after Winona gets one last bite in the nads to the boss.
  • A pity, as Siegfried and Watchdog JUST miss them.
  • Filthy Rich is the one heading the Ponyville investigation, which Luna discovers but doesn't realize she did.
  • Flash and Fizzle make it to their targets house! Only they're not home. So they decide to wait... and wait... and wait... it's going to be a while.
  • When the rest of the crabs attack, Shining and Celestia have a way to solve the problem. A hose.
  • A hose that spits fire. All of them have the time of their lives as they burn up every single crab.
  • Except Pinchy, obviously.
  • But no time for that, as another surprise has arrived! The main six and Spike show up at the CE villa, and there is much hugs and rejoicing, or glaring, whichever.
  • They decide to hang out, but once the CE leave the main six get an awful, wonderful thought.
  • The prank war has begun.

THREAD 120Edit

  • LAST THREAD RECAP PRANK WAR EDITION
  • The prank war has begun with everyone calling dibs!
  • Absolutely none of these dibs take.
  • A certain someone finds himself in Puerto Burro. Needless to say, Snake Eyes could not have picked a worse time, as 32 is quick to inform him. He's gonna get messed up.
  • 29 tries moping, absolutely nobody lets him mope.
  • He gets dragged around, poked by the locals, face scraped off by Trixie, but it's no use. Even the Ghost Kids won't leave him alone. Sooner or later, he ends up on a boat with the other four when they lure him aboard.
  • No, he can't swim. He realizes this shortly. This is the worst.
  • Quicksilver tries to gamble, Lucky stops him.
  • Fancy is about to blow a gasket learning all of the goings on of the castle. Everything from DT's involvement in the A-team, to how the guards have been overseen, or rather not overseen, to how much the Princesses spend on Cake make him wonder if he's in over his head.
  • Two puts flame stickers on the side of Pinchy. This makes him fast.
  • Chitty muses that nobody is around to stop 'a threat' if someone tried to wreck Canterlot or the CE. 13 hits her with a newspaper.
  • But no time for pondering, for an old foe from Chitania's past returns for battle!
  • Yes, of course! OCTAVIA emerges for a battle! A Cello battle!
  • Because they had that contest one time in Partyland and Octavia cannot let shit go.
  • This somehow ends up with a several hour concert between the two and Sweet Note and Vinyl getting into a fight, because of course it did.
  • DnD with everyone! Aj tries advanced seduction on Shining's character and Spike is having none of that.
  • 56 is still in Canterlot and anxious, because he wants to get back to looking. Originally he wanted to go back to 29, but then when he realized it would look like him giving up he reconsidered, too stricken by the idea of making him sad at another failure.
  • AJ and Chrysalis talk about the seeds, they reveal that neither has spoken to the others about what happened.
  • But Shining put it together anyway, and confronts Aj, but he doesn't go too hard on her due to their history.
  • Shining tries to have a nice dinner with everyone.
  • It devolves into a chaotic food fight in seconds.
  • Thus begins the war in earnest, with both sides going nuts.
  • It only stalls when Shining mentions who is going to clean up the place.
  • Of course, the only one who stays and doesn't bail is 42, because she is bro bug.
  • All the while, Cadence is keeping on.
  • 32 discovers Q and Reggie!
  • The CMC's train is stopped by a dragon! Turns out, they're searching for Chitania for revenge.
  • Scootaloo saves the day with Jive.
  • Pinkie and Mane-Iac want to hang out more.
  • There is a war of leadership among the main six. It ends with horn envy.
  • Nobody in the CE crew try, they just do their own thing.
  • Pommel meeting Cheerilee is weird.
  • 88 continues on her wild ride! Traveling with Tall Vekir to eventually meet mini versions of the Main Six and Chrysalis, all of whom are greatly flanderized due to 88 not having much of an impression of them, or thinking badly of them in Chrysalis's case.
  • She is eventually directed to the 'mushroom bug', which as it turns out is a version of herself that was regrown from her eyeballs.
  • Instead of a battle, they merely talk, and Nu88 reveals she can have her eyes back... at a cost.
  • She will have to remember every single thing that the Cordyceps did. All the sights of what it saw in it's Hivemind state will come back to her. Every kid who attacked his parents, every loved one turned against the other, she'll see it.
  • Eventually, 88 takes the deal, deciding for herself that she can just make good memories to push them away.
  • Thus, she can finally see again-
  • "WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT!? WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU!? WHAT THE FUCK!?"
  • And realizes what she's been wandering in and with who all this time. She takes it... well?
  • Then she ends up back in Puerto Burro, and 32 is happy.
  • Back with the others, Chrysalis hatches several prank schemes, and all of them backfire in her face.
  • Chrysalis is seen outside Caddy's door. Shining thinks she's worried about Cadence, in reality Chrysalis just wants to mess up her papers.
  • MM and Pommel talk. It's awkward.
  • Cheese gets no party.
  • AJ tries to have breakfast with SA and crew, causes him to lose his mind when she doesn't like blueberries.
  • Actarius tries to have fun with JJ, but this gets complicated when he discovers... his parents. His mom in a thong causes screaming.
  • Do not fucking touch Centitrain's bags.
  • The changeling growing the plant is waiting for AJ to come back.
  • Aj wants to know how to make Bubbleshields. SA is just happy someone wants to know.
  • Suckerpunch, with much reluctance, asks his Auntie Aftershock for a favor. What favor? We don't know.
  • Finally breaking, Fancy asks how any of this is okay, the guard asks back why he doesn't wear pants... that settles that.
  • The CE ponies haven't really been doing much investigating...
  • Shining and Spike have a heart to heart about relationships.
  • The chaos reaches a fever pitch in an all out prank war, with both sides going so crazy even Pinkie needs a break!
  • She goes down to the hatch, gets herself a drink...
  • And realizes that the bomb is gone.
  • "FUUUUUUU

THREAD 121Edit

  • THE BEACH IS HOT EDITION!
  • Suckerpunch asks for more time off... while on vaction..
  • 42 and Spike engage in diversionary tactic, Spike wins.... kinda?
  • Fleur goes to check on Fancy, finds him curled up under his desk after getting a first hoof account of all of Equestria's ills.
  • They then proceed to go mess around with everything, because of course. It also turns out that when Fancy puts a helmet on his head, Fluer can't recognize him, prompting Fancy to wonder about cloning.
  • The prank war gets crazier, with both sides going back and forth, but mostly managing to hurt themselves. Chrysalis especially.
  • Twilight needs to make sorry cake for Shiny.
  • Cadence, tired and drained due to lack of food, thinks she finished her paperwork, and goes out to celebrate.
  • Octavia's and Chitania's battle still has not ended, with so much time passed both are on the edge. When Chitania makes Octy trip up thanks to calling SN food, Chitania is the winner!
  • And then Octavia smashed her cello into Chitty's head.
  • Chitty then begins chasing Octavia, and nobody can stop her.
  • Snake Eyes prepares to leave, thinking that 32 is closing in, it turns out 32 really was just being friendly, and he stops him on his way out. SN's is almost in the clear, until Reggie recognizes him.
  • Then 32 gets very, very mad.
  • Then begins one wild ass chase, which brings in Daw, 77, Pommel and Sunset as they go after Snake Eyes as he goes all over Puerto Burro and eventually ends up in the water.
  • Eventually, after an... odd interlude when Rat and Crew arrive and Lavan's magic wears off, causing them to fall on 32's head before he tosses them to Canterlot, only to have them tossed back, Snake Eyes is caught!... And he is playing the lying game to try to get out of this.
  • 29 is relaxing on the boat eventually with the others, having put aside his fear. When he asks for one of then to oil him up so he tans right, and don't ask why he's tanning chitin, Trixie steps up to the plate!
  • Long story short, he ends up in the water. Longer story short, there's a bunch of ghost children down there. Longest story short, he goes full cold determination, drives the boat to the shore at reckless speeds and nearly crashes when he arrives, and then disguises himself as a random pony, and tells the other three to stay put.
  • They don't.
  • Lucky spots 29 going crazy and 32 trying to burn down the ocean, flips a bit, ends up going off to deal with the 29 thing and takes Quicksilver, SG and Suckerpunch with him.
  • Mane-Iac and Fluttershy want to hang out.
  • Cadence collapses looking for food.
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz get a weird call
  • Screwloose makes it to the Gunclub room, recognizes Blueblood's gun... somehow.
  • SA senses Cadence needs him and floats off. Chrysalis has no idea what just happened.
  • 88 finally can go home! But learns she can't take any mini-changelings with her, they can't leave the valley. She promises to return, and her and lavan leave.
  • And then said valley is stumbled upon by none other than... Diamond and Party Favor... from Glimmers village. Huh.
  • SA comes across the office, and Cadence's work. To his dismay, he finds that without food, Cadence became a little... off the longer she worked. To the point where she was drawing kitties at the end. Yes, Kitties.
  • PJ, who had been hiding until now, notices Jetset having trouble down below, and goes off to say hi.
  • Cadence dreams everyone is telling her she did a good job.
  • The CMC's train is out of control because Vekir knocked out the conductor, and about to crash at a fork in the road. While Winona wants to do a completely improbable and stupid move to escape, instead Sweetie offers they just let the train run out of steam and not add any more to it. They go with option B, and end up somewhere they don't recognize.
  • Applejack, looking for a snack, stumbles across Cadence knocked out. While she just wants to get her food and go, she accidentally wakes Cadence up.
  • Trapped, her and Cadence begin to talk, and soon they're having a heart to heart about their failings as Princesses. Cadence on her paperwork front, and Applejack on her magic front. They both wonder why the other took to what they were lacking so readily, and wonder if maybe they just can't improve on them.
  • Even so, after revealing that for once she doesn't have an answer to it, Applejack says that regardless, she can't give up learning. Not because she needs to or it's vital, but because all her friends think she can, and she doesn't want to let them down. She leaves after telling Cadence she believes in her too, and Cadence has to decide if she wants to keep trying.
  • She does, when she goes back to the office. Shining soon finds her, and he's not going anywhere.
  • Twilight and Spike try to get 42 drunk, it backfires.
  • Flash and Fizzle are still waiting, talks get... weird.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Pinkie get crazy in her search for the bomb. Really, really crazy.
  • But soon, crazy pays off, and she stumbles across... something.
  • Despite her knowing it's crazy, she decides to handle it herself.
  • Long story short, she could not handle it herself.
  • Out of fucking nowhere, a giant spider-crab the size of a building attacks the Villa and everyone there, and he's carrying Pinkie Pie!
  • The crab can talk too, and summons the various denizens of the ocean to rise up and take the surface world.
  • Thus, the battle is on! A war wages between the main seven sans Pinkie and Fluttershy with every one of the CE crew sand SA and Cadence, and the creatures of the ocean... except Pinchy, he decided to stuck with Two, because wibbles.
  • It's a total curbstomp for the ocean army, who can't even scratch the protagonists and their various teamup moves.
  • All the while, Pinkie gets a little sad this means they're probably gonna go home. But a pep talk from Two eventually gets her out of her funk.
  • The crab's plans falling apart makes him go drastic. We're talking whalebombs and sand sharks drastic.
  • Neither of these work.
  • So the crab threatens Pinkie, who manages to hit him in the eye with hot butter thanks to cute changeling delivery service, and is free.
  • Then, he decides he's going to detonate the bomb, which might work!
  • BOOM! CENTITRAIN OUTTA NOWHERE!
  • Kaiju battle goes on, with Applejack joining into the fray at one point, and the crab is defeated when Centitrain remembers that Electric Types are super effective against Water Types.
  • Broken and defeated, the crab shuffles off into the water... but he has one last trick up it's Pincer!
  • It summons a giant tsunami that will rain devastation upon the land! Destroy everything! Wreck the coast for generations to come! He will-
  • "That's enough"
  • And now it's all gone.
  • The answers why everything, bodies included, all vanished become pretty apparent when they all spot Fluttershy down at the shore, and sure enough, it turns out it was Discord! Just causing a little bit of chaos. Because he does that.
  • Still, it looks like everything's fine... until they notice the bomb is active. And Discord can't poof it away because Fluttershy overdid turning off his powers.
  • Everyone panics, and after a failed attempt where she makes the bomb BIGGER, Flutteshy sends the bomb off!
  • Toooo Pinkie's Aunt's old hatch, where it blows up the rum... and everything. And then launches the shack into the villa, which it destroyed.
  • Finally, they get around to asking Centitrain why it showed up, and she spits a note in AJ's face.
  • It turns out.. it's time to go home, and everyone is sad. They have to leave...
  • But mayyyybe after one last wild party.
  • The beach arc... is over.

THREAD 122Edit

  • WE'RE BACK BABY EDITION!
  • Snake eyes almost wrangles his way out of being caught. Almost. Then he slips up.
  • Hey, it's his first time, he's new to this.
  • The guards worry that the princess ran off.
  • Fancy wonders if Appleoosa is nice this time of year.
  • It actually is, as the Sheriff proves when he laughs off someone asking if they investigated the changeling over there.
  • Pennydrop is happy it's all back.
  • Filthy Rich finishes his investigation, and pays off a guard to keep quiet about what he did.
  • JJ juggles in the shower... it's weird.
  • 10 continues her infiltration of Stalliongrad.
  • 88 plots to get nieces and nephews, because she is still a little crazy.
  • Cadence is happy she managed to fight temptation, even if she lost spending time with everyone. Still, she's happy. So happy, that she requests that Shining and her go on their 'own' train.
  • This is now Shinings favorite vacation.
  • Pinkie misses her shack
  • Arana isn't allowed to stay in AJ's office until she gets an okay, so she has to sleep with Blueblood... not like how it sounds.
  • Q secured evidence. That evidence? A shitload of bits.
  • After many chases, Chitania finally has Octavia cornered, and it looks like she's going to start smashing. Except then out of nowhere, 13 chimes in! And starts yelling her head off at her mother for being so quick to anger.
  • A tense scene unfolds where 13 demands she stop, and Chitania tells her to never talk to her like that again, before leaving both on sour terms, and saying they will talk later.
  • Sweet Note asks if she needs to bury a body.
  • 2, sadly, cannot bring Pinchy with her, for he is a giant crab, and they live in an icy tundra with no salt water anywhere.
  • Tearful goodbyes are had, for both of them.
  • 29 finally crashes his boat and arrives where he had been seemingly mindlessly charging, and it turns out he was heading towards a seemingly barren shack that had a hidden passage to it. He disguises himself as a pony and tells the other three to stay up top.
  • They don't.
  • After fighting his way through far too many guards, 29 eventually finds what he is looking for, which as it turns out is a bunch of kidnapped children!
  • Reluctantly, they follow him, but unfortunately are still children and thus annoying.
  • He also gets lost, because ghost kids are silly.
  • Finally, he seems to reach the end... only to be stopped by, of all things, a camel. Yes, a camel. They can talk, you racist.
  • Said camel sicks his guards on him, but they are defeated in a flash of light!
  • Yes, they have been saved by the GREAT AND POWERFUL TRIXIE! And now the final battle can begin!
  • Pennydrop is informed by her scientist that it's not possible to do a changeling infusion. Instead, they're beginning work on the 'synthesis project'.
  • Luna finally found Celestia!... Just when the trip is over.
  • Rarity wants to talk to Cadence, but seeing the look she's giving Shiny, she thinks the better of it.
  • The CMC and Vekir get lost in a forest, and encounter a strange pony in a nice suit... so of course Sweetie Belle immediately rushes off to go see them.
  • The CE crew, Celestia and Twi talk about why Shiny and Cadence got a train all to themselves.
  • They all hop on to Centitrain to head out! Only, there is a clash of who gets to drive, and battles are had.
  • Long story short, Rarity is conked on the head and talking funny.
  • Also, biting Applejack's ass, because she wants apples.
  • This also sets off a chain reaction that ends with everyone except Twilight and Spike biting said ass. Yes, everyone includes Centitrain.
  • Celestia is with the CE crew instead of Centitrain. Why? Because she wants to race said Centitrain, obviously.
  • Despite the race, both parties stop at a fast food chain called Haydee's Burgers... that serves everything except burgers. Everything.
  • Taking Two to a fast food place was a mistake.
  • The Ponyville residents hear the Mayor is coming back, and must shut down all the illegal shit they've been doing, which is a lot.
  • Also, demons decide to put off taking over the world when they hear Cheerilee shall return.
  • Celestia laughs when CE train pulls ahead of Centitrain, and it looks like victory is assured!...Then Centitrain turns, but they don't.
  • Because Centitrain is going to Canterlot.
  • They are not.
  • This JUST hits Celestia.
  • She makes a dive for it before she remembers she can fly, and eventually catches up. Only when she lands does she remember she forgot something.
  • That something is Luna.
  • ...this is not Celly's day.
  • But, eventually they made it home! Back to Canterlot!
  • There is only one person waiting for them when they do. Fancy Pants is waiting on the edge of the train station.
  • They expect all charges to be dropped and the investigation to be over... right?
  • "Miss Rainbow Dash? I have some... questions."
  • Shit.

THREAD 123Edit

  • OH THE LOVE EDITION!
  • The morlocks being on Rats ship prove to be a problem. The solution? Rocket them into a train to send them home.
  • This, somehow, works.
  • The CE crew come back to find the citizens partied too hard.
  • Celestia runs from Luna, runs into Lavan, then decides that running is the best option.
  • Dash is worried about her investigation. A little too worried.
  • Pennydrop, on the other hoof, is laughing her ass off.
  • Jetset at first decides to guard AJ's desk until she returns, but then ends up phasing through it, and ending up in the kitchen. Harshwhinny gives no fucks.
  • 13 is pissed the stadium isn't clean yet.
  • The rest of the CE crew arrive and disembark, but the citizens are so embarrassed they don't notice Shiny and Cadence aren't with them.
  • Said pair sneak back in later, and resolve to have 18 put showers on the train, because reasons.
  • AJ forgot about Sunset again.
  • 29 is thankful that Trixie followed, and MM and Zecora with her. He's less thankful when the Camel brings in a literal mob to take them all down in that hanger.
  • But all is not lost, because from behind the Camel came the royal guard!... All five of them!
  • Thus, the battle is on, between the Camel's thugs and the soldiers. They're doing pretty well, and a shocking discovery is made!
  • THE ARMOR ACTUALLY WORKS.
  • After a long battle, during which Zecora and 29 joins in, with the latter going to town with his favored weapon of 'pipe', it looks like the heroes have won!
  • But it's not over yet, the Camel has one last trick up his sleeve, a giant stone dragon with the body of a lion!
  • The final battle is on!
  • 32 is weird.
  • 18 culls the Paperwork monster back from whence it came
  • Vinyl is happy Octy isn't beaten to a pulp, even if she shows it weird. She thinks Octavia should apologize, the concert pony disagrees.
  • 42 and Spitfire find some of their number passed out, so they get those soldiers back on track.
  • LD is smug because no matter how this Dash thing comes out, she wins. Gilda is worried.
  • Gwen hears of the news thanks to PD's agent, and sets off to confront Dash. On the airship enroute, Pennydrop pays her a visit, and gives her a new Gryphon mech.
  • Snake Eyes has inspiration on how to get out of this.
  • Fluer is worried that Fancy might be putting himself in danger, resolves to burn the castle down if they try anything on him.
  • Sunset and 77 talk about what they lost, and what they would give to get it back.
  • Cadence gets to work on real paperwork.
  • Chrysalis starts to mess with the Orb out of desperation
  • Fancy finally interviews Dash about all that she's done. During it, he goes over all her events, from her promotion right to now, and points out how suspicious some of it is. At the end, he makes a vague comment about if there would be any reason talking about this would be dangerous, and Dash realizes he's implying he'll back off if threatened. She takes the high road though, which pleases him, and takes down all of her explanations for why this isn't what it looks like. This will be sent off to be judged, as Fancy only investigates, not pass judgement.
  • Rarity and Coco reunite!
  • Spike talks to Silver Spoon, who mentions DT is missing.
  • Daw and Sunset find Snake Eyes dyes that he uses to impersonate ponies.
  • Valentines day stories with all of the CE crew, 29 and co, Acty and JJ, Luna and 56, 55 and Ingrid, and of course Applejack and Spike
  • The CMC and Vekir are looking for Sweetie Belle, but are instead attacked and knocked out by a mysterious pony in a suit with no face.
  • Twilight decides to investigate why ponies can grab things
  • Spike knows someone has been in the Gunclub room, and goes off to find them. He also accidentally trips and shoots himself.
  • And finally, Fuzzy and the Buzz break the news about Dash to all of Canterlot!

THREAD 124Edit

  • I AM SO LATE EDITION!
  • AJ and Celly talk about the dragon migration, and that it's a bit of a missed opportunity.
  • Cadence gets ice cream
  • Discord bugs Fluttershy
  • Chrysalis can cook an egg, so long as there's no fire... somehow.
  • 10, still infiltrating, discovers the room Trender is being kept in!
  • Trender's friend who he works with has lost hope, but he hasn't. A well timed explosive proves him right
  • 13 got the lings to clean up the stadium.
  • Spike isn't helping the castle staff.
  • Aj and Arana reunite, with the latter talking about how she can't go back to the office until AJ gives the okay, but that's okay because she's sleeping with Blueblood and showing him what her legs can do!
  • AJ speeds up getting that fixed.
  • Screwloose shoots herself in the throat... somehow.
  • Lavan finds the robot containing his brother, but ignores it.
  • SA and 18 are encouraging Cadence.
  • Chitania misses Mr Popcorn, and Discord calls her out for not going and fighting Lavan like he told her to. She acts strange about this.
  • 42 is silly with teleports
  • Ordering a pizza in the CE causes chaos
  • As does Chrysalis attempting to make Dash a hero.
  • 88 has bad memories about the Cordy incident, and has nightmares.
  • Lavan finds her in one and muses about his own past.
  • Timewarp discussions are had
  • SA is stalking Spike and taking notes on his lovelife for... reasons.
  • Gwen and PD, bored when refueling the airship, try smalltalk. It doesn't work. Instead, they settle on boardgames.
  • This spirals into full on sleepover antics.
  • Pommel and crew finally arrive home with the prisoner!
  • They only now realize they left behind Cheese and Cheerilee.
  • 7 has had a productive week.
  • The Blowjob Bill is still a law, and Celly will never let it leave. Applejack gets cake for this from a very happy user of said law.
  • The CMC and Vekir wake up in a strange room, and come up with a disguise plan to get out! It proves pointelss as alarms start blaring and something terrible happens outside.
  • Chrysalis still can't swim.
  • Two's play is less entertaining then the CE crew trying to watch it.
  • The battle between the guards and the Camel's dragon-lion golem rages on! It's not going well for them, and they're being beat within an inch of their lives.
  • With them being battered and the children terrified, Trixie steps up to the plate! She lets out everything she has in a dazzling display, but it fails, and she is struck in a devastating blow.
  • Likewise, when 29 tries to defend the children, he is attacked as well in a blow that breaks his chitin and nearly takes him down. He manages to get back up, and puts himself between the children and the Camel again. The claw comes up to kill him...
  • And is stopped, by a chain. Lucky Strikes holds on, giving a speech about how much they have to do every day, and that they're not decoration. In return, he is whipped around and battered like a cat on a string.
  • He is joined by the other four guards in turn, each one wrapping the thing in chains until it is held down, albeit temporarily. Realizing they won't last long, the guards plead for the other to run.
  • They realize that even if they did, they wouldn't make it out, they simply can't hold him long enough. So, instead, 29 proposes a risky move to Zecora, who is reluctant due to the fact this will likely kill him in his weakened state. She agrees when Mayor Mare forces the matter, even if she doesn't want to.
  • Soon enough, Zecora assembles a makeshift childs cornpopper toy out of the scrap, marks it with her magic symbols, and gives it to 29. The changeling gives his final words to the others, sure this will be his end, and tells the guard to hold on.
  • They do, and the light that has not been seen since he used it to move Chitania's gaze returns, and it threatens to consume him!
  • But he's not alone this time. The other three join in, holding on with him, and focusing the blast. They channel the power of the ghostkids, and let loose a blast that blows a solid, clean hole in the golem! Afterwards, they go down, not breathing.
  • But it's not over! The Camel survived, and his golem did too! Albeit with a giant hole in it. He prepares to finish what he started, but the chains wrapped around him rip his golem to shreds, and he's left without.
  • The guard emerge from the smoke, and finish him off, with Lucky jamming a bar of soap in his mouth for cursing in front of the children.
  • Lucky takes charge, ordering everyone to secure all the prisoners, and get help, and checks on the ponyville crew... they're alive!
  • It's finally over, and the kids are returned back to their parents.
  • Afterwards, everyone reflects on what happened, feeling the pain of what occurred, but feeling accomplished too.
  • Though he complained, Pommel's tune quickly changes when a newspaper comes in and tells him what happened.
  • The Ponyville 4 wake up, and after some talking to each other and reflecting on their survival, the three mares make a stunning discovery when they realize the kids in their room aren't quite alive!
  • "Welcome to the club."
  • Back at Canterlot, Applejack sees the airship in the distance, taking it's sweet time to make it to her. She stares on determined, ready to fight when it arrives. Just as soon as it gets here...
  • Which will eventually be after Pennydrop and Gwen get the silly string and chocolate out of their coats, as their party got slightly out of control.
  • "...what the buck is takin' them so long!?"
  • She's going to be waiting a while.

THREAD 125Edit

  • AJ SUCKS AT POLITICS EDITION!
  • Chrysalis messes up everyone's papers.
  • Aj calls a princess meeting before Gwen arrives, it solves nothing.
  • The Ghostbusters wake up, and revel in the fact they can talk to ghosts. After confirming their previous enslaver is going to be locked up forever, the ghost kids pass on peacefully.
  • And by that I mean they blind them all.
  • Afterwards, they get visited by the very alive kids.
  • The changelings talk of musical tastes, it gets weird.
  • OnO gets sad...
  • Things get heated at Stalliongrad, with everyone outside the compound panicking when they stumble across random explosions. In their search, they find one of their robots hiding in wake.
  • BZZT! SUCKERS! It's not their robots at all! It's BLUEBLOODBOT!
  • Inside the compound, the guards put the prisoners in front of the only entrance, hoping to use them to absorb the bulletfire, because they suck.
  • But what they weren't expecting was a shot from behind! Changeling disguise is OP, and Ten takes out all of them without hurting a single prisoner. Chipper as a schoolgirl, she tells Trender they're going home!
  • Gwen comes down out of her airship, and meets only Celly and AJ for talks, a powerplay on Celly's part. When she departs, they notice she has a metal gryphon right there with her, and she insists on bringing it. Reluctantly, they agree and go off to talk.
  • A back and forth debate occurs, with things getting more and more heated about the recent reveal. In the end, thanks to some poorly chosen words from Applejack, who just could not keep her mouth shut, Gwendolyn lays down a decree. Either they fire Rainbow Dash from the Wonderbolts, or ties between Equestria and the Gryphons are cut.
  • Celly gives her a D- for that one.
  • Changelings find out pies are not viable weapons.
  • Lucky and the other guards, plus 41, load up the Ghostbusters onto the train and decide to head home, with the latter and Cheerilee heading towards ponyville.
  • Oh, and Cheese is coming, and he's not taking no for an answer.
  • 41 gives a report on the goings on of what happened to a oblivious 42. She freaks out a little.
  • Ponyville tries to pretend to be normal.
  • 2 and Sombra do standup.
  • Fluttershy looks for Seven, but he's not with the animals. Also, her powers are sparking up, and for some reason she can hear Discord, but can't see him...
  • Celestia helps Jetset fix his phasing problem.
  • Chitania waits for 13 to show up so they can talk, but 13 never comes. Instead she leaves Sweet Note all alone, stating she has somewhere to be.
  • Mayor Mare didn't ask who was investigating her or even watched who went into her office. She blames this on 29.

  • AJ comes back for round 2 of the debate, firing off a bunch of reasons Gwen should back off from her demands to the gryphon. Sadly, they all fail, and Gwendolyn gives off a final warning that either she abides by it, or the gryphons cut off ties.
  • Angry, Applejack leaves, and Gwen muses to a hidden Pennydrop that she was right. The gryphon asks if she wants to accompony her back to her kingdom, but Pennydrop merely tells her not to leave yet., because the real fun has not yet begun.
  • Get a good seat and some popcorn, the real show is about to start

THREAD 126Edit

  • ROCKY THEME EDITION!
  • Sunset joins up with Chitania, who takes her back to hotel room in order to work on the thing to 'fix' her.
  • Confusingly, Chitania spends most of her time writing something on a chalkboard over and over, and trying to do something with rocks in a bowl. Every single time, she fails at whatever it is she's trying to do, and grows angry.
  • Even so, she does not give up. Moved by this, Sunset let her continue
  • Watchdog and Siegfried try to procure a hot air balloon. When an embarrassing moment from Siegfried's past comes back to haunt him, he dons and disguise and repeats "Omelette Du Fromage!", pretending that's all he can say.
  • With this, he brings terror to the land.
  • PD and Gwen nearly burn their airship down making popcorn.
  • MM's office is destroyed, and yet nobody even remembers she was being investigated.
  • Aj gives everyone the bad news. They talk about Batmare.
  • Chitania continues to try to achieve whatever it is she's trying to do, but it's getting to her. Slowly but surely, she's breaking more and more, and she's running out of rocks, and Sunset is getting impatient. All the while, Chitania is lamenting that magic is so hard to do.
  • Two is a tower. It is cute.
  • 32, after a drunken talk with Actarius, decides to go bury the hatchet.
  • Yes, all while drunk.
  • Success! He manages to do pretty good with Chrysalis and 18, and even manages to get on 'neutral' terms with 42!'
  • Not so much Shining Armor, who he keeps blarghing all over.
  • 88 is quite happy she has her sight back, and keeps hitting on Actarius. He doesn't get it.
  • 77 is sleeping on the couch.
  • AJ laments that she has to tell Dash the bad news.
  • Cadence and 18 hug, it intensifies.
  • Jetset, talking with Raven, realizes he can't teleport anymore.
  • Lucky gets to brag about his day.
  • Spike tries cloths from another store, Rarity is betrayed.
  • Chrysalis should pay attention while snowboarding.
  • Sweet Note talks to 13, and convinces her to go see her mom.
  • Fluttershy finds Dash relaxing on a cloud, and they start talking about said clouds. How they look nice, but ultimately are very fleeting. It looks big, but it only takes five minutes to be made, and is gone just as fast. She compares her Wonderbolt tenure to this.
  • But Fluttershy points out clouds also bring the rain, and without it, how will anything grow?
  • Two hugs Chrysalis so she doesn't do anything stupid.
  • It backfires when Shiny wants a hug.
  • MM wants to know what being a ghostbuster means, and it turns out to mostly be listening to crazy kids.
  • The CMC make it through the waves of monsters, even if Vekir refuses to fire a shot because she's saving her bullets, and stumble across... a tickle-me-sweetie belle doll?
  • AB is just done.
  • Chrysalis uses a placebo 'mind control' to help the Crystal Pegasi fly in formation, gets a kiss from Shiny.
  • AJ finds Dash walking through the halls, and her heart breaks when she tries to give the news. But, strangely, Dash isn't at all bothered. If anything, she's... cocky?
  • It turns out, she's got a plan.
  • Yes, it is crazy.
  • Yes, AJ is totally onboard.
  • And yes, so is everyone else.
  • 13 and SN can't find Chitty, because changeling.
  • Daw is mad they didn't get to fight the golem.
  • Actarius has to drag his boss back. 88 makes fun of him.
  • Twilight makes a new beer. Because.
  • At last, Sunset has had enough of Chitania's failing, and demands she show her what it is she's trying to do, despite Chitania's insistence that she knows what she is doing, magic is just hard for her.
  • When asked why she won't just reveal it, Chitania admits that, thanks to Sunset's body having changeling magic, she is worried that Sunset will merely do the procedure she plans herself, and the the Queen will not get what she agreed to give.
  • Sunset loses her mind, furious that Chitania would do that, that she would hold back just because she thought Sunset would backstab her. In a breakdown, she claims she would give, or do, anything Chitania wanted if it meant she could just be alive again, as that's all she cares about. If she can do that, she'll do whatever Chitania wants, regardless if it's her directly that does it.
  • Reluctantly, Chitania shows her the Queen's Power she is trying to use.
  • When finished, Sunset is taken aback by how easy it is, to which Chitania bitterly points out that magic has always been very difficult for her, a concept Sunset-a prodigy-struggles to grasp. Chitania reveals that she knows a great many other Queen's abilities, but can't use any of them despite training to do so. When asked if they will go to waste, Chitania laments that she was going to pass them on to her daughter, so she could be what Chitty could not.
  • But that doesn't matter anymore. Afterwards, both reflect on how they left behind other worlds, and cannot go back to them anymore. Chitty with the life she had with the Queens, and Sunset's human world.
  • Still, Sunset points out the technique will not be enough, to which Chitania replies that 'the power of Necrophorus is only the beginning'.
  • Resolved, Sunset acknowledges there's no going back now.
  • Zecora and 29 think about how everything changed, and how they will have to help Mayor Mare adjust. Then they get high.
  • 56 at last finds the rec room! Oh happy day, it's all over!
  • But, out of nowhere, he's suddenly hit with a newspaper in the head. Upon reading it, he finds the story of 29s clash with the Camel kidnapper and the subsequent injuries he sustained. But, to his horror, the newspaper has been clipped to not show what happened afterwards, only implying he was badly injured and moved to Ponyville for treatment.
  • All of a sudden, he is torn, no longer sure what to do. He doesn't want to give up and leave, but he has to know if his cousin is okay. He's sure 29 is fine, and knows he will be mad at him for quitting, but at the same time if he does need help, there's no changelings in ponyville to give him some love, he might need him.
  • He's ready to break down, knowing if he leaves the Nightguard captain will call him a quitter and he'll never get the training or get to spend time with moons. At the same time, he realizes just how much 29 did for him, and not just saving him back in the day. He finally understands just what he had to go through for him.
  • After a debate, he can't take it anymore, and runs off to go see his cousin.
  • After he is gone a voice in the shadows declare 'he has passed his first test'.
  • 10 gets Trender out of the warehouse, but they are nearly attacked by robots.
  • BZZT!
  • They're not worried.
  • SA/Cadence/18 decide to go on another date night.
  • A ghost kid points out Trixie is doing nothing.
  • Two misses Pinchy
  • And finally, Dash, at last reveals her plan.
  • She calls an assembly and admits all her faults to Cantrerlot, and Equestria. Admits that it wasn't AJ's fault this happened, but that she herself couldn't handle it, and she didn't let AJ know. She cared more about the dream than if she could pull it off.
  • She finally admits she hasn't been the very best they deserve, and is stepping down.
  • ...buuuuuutttt..
  • Rather than leave it at that, she points out they deserve only the best, and nobody is sure who that is right now. So, they're going to prove it.
  • She declares that in one month's time, every single Wonderbolt, present and no longer a WB, get a chance to take the captains chair. She announces an event that will test all aspects of being a captain, and it's winner take all!
  • For one month, Lightning Dust is in charge. At the end, they'll be put to the test, and the real best captain will be chosen!
  • It's winner take all, and it is ON!

  • Idris's captain flees, and he doesn't seem to mind.
  • Trixie thinks Luna will be more interested in her now that she has ghostsight. She's not. She IS more interested in Zecora, though!

  • This ends badly for Shining
  • 32 wants no part in the commotion outside.
  • Applebloom still doesn't care, even when a reality warping monster is outside the cafeteria
  • Lavan gets trapped with Angel Bunny
  • Jetset finds a morose Spike, and tells him that Spike might have to take over for him until he gets his teleporting back.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Sunset keeps thinking about what Chitania said, that there was chaos inside of her, and realizes why everything went so wrong. She vows to get Discord, whatever it takes, but is stopped from doing anything rash by Chitania, who forces her down so they can continue.
  • After Chitania explains the procedure, Sunset has an odd request for her. She asks that if something goes wrong, that Chitty not just hide the body and forget about it, even though it would be in her best interest and she has no reason not to hide her involvement.
  • After remembering her own events with being 'dead' and what that did to the Queens, and her personal experience of losing someone and never knowing of they're dead or alive with her daughter, Chitty agrees, and Sunset is put under, dreaming of a better day.
  • During the procedure, we look into all the previously thought useless techniques Chiania uses to pull it off, and she reminisces about the days long past when she learned them from her fellow changelings.
  • Then something goes wrong, of course.
  • "Well, fuck."
  • Twilight suddenly remembers that whole orb thing, and rushes off to her lab to get the device to let them peer into it. However, when she boots up her computer, something else distracts her. Something that makes her very, very angry.
  • Sunset, in a seemingly endless white realm, goes over all her failures and what brought her to this point. During this, she suddenly gets the ability to feel again, but something is wrong. Inside that realm, it seems like something is trying to grab her, even as she begs and pleads for it not to take her, and that she's not ready to go. It continues anyway, but she manages to fight back long enough to destroy all said white of the realm, and then is grabbed by something else in the inky blackness that remains
  • Feeling like this the end, she says she's sorry, and begs for forgiveness, as the end consumes her, and a motherly voice tells her to come along.
  • Then it tells her to wake the fuck up.
  • She jolts up, not dead as she had thought! Not only that, but as Chitania needlessly points out... she's fixed!
  • Or, as she puts it...
  • "I'M ALIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVEE!"
  • She runs off before Chitty can say anything, or collect on their deal, leaving Chitania to realize she essentially is left with nothing, no way to force the matter or collect.
  • Sunset runs away, screaming as loud as she can.
  • Elsewhere, Aj and Spike hear screaming, and can't quite believe who they think it is. When Spike goes to go check, he gets a facefull of door.
  • But it's Twilight who enters in, ranting to AJ that Sunset broke into her computer again. AJ tries to apologize, and say she'll handle it, but it only does so much to calm her down. Twi still insists she's going to kick her ass
  • However, that sentiment doesn't stick when they both hear a certain... something, and teleport off.
  • Spike's okay, by the way.
  • Outside, Sunset is going nuts with sensations. All her body working as it should is overloading her, and she's desperately trying to stimulate it all. Eating whatever she can, touching what she can, breathing in smells, it's all a whole new world for her and she wants every bit of it. After diving into a fountain to feel the rush, she has to slow down, her body weak again.
  • That's when AJ and Twi appear on the scene, and stare in shock.
  • Instead of being angry at them, she giddly tackles AJ and swings around with Twilight, happy as can be. She keeps chanting she's alive and enjoys herself, with the only thing that can stop her being a gasp from Princess Celestia herself. After wordlessly confirming that Twilight didn't do this, she's as confused as the other two, and they all wait for Sunset to say something. She says something, alright.
  • "Go fuck yourself, Applejack."
  • She tears into them all, loudly declaring that none of them ever really cared about her and listing all their failures and neglect. They all try to argue it, but none of them really manage.
  • Applejack, who is hit the hardest, lets slip one last ditch effort that she didn't even ask to be Sunset's teacher
  • "It showed."
  • having had enough of that, Twilight and Celestia grab her, and after she chews out the both of them, Celestia prepares to take them to a more private place to talk.
  • However, as Sunset points out, someone has a problem with that.
  • Someone very big and angry.
  • Chitania appears on the scene, and stops that teleport with one swing! She then declares she's after Sunset.
  • The other three rush to defend her, but it proves pointless.
  • Mostly because Sunset has already rushed out and grabbed on to hug her leg like a cat.
  • Attempts to shake her off or look cool prove fruitless, and Chitania starts to walk away.
  • But, of course, AJ is having none of that, summoning a giant wall to stop her. When Chitania asks what she said to them, Sunset replies she only said this
  • "Go fuck yourself, Applejack."
  • Then someone throws a rock.

  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • The rock Applejack threw by mistake, and it was revealed to be just a wild power surge, hits CHitania, and she thinks that AJ wants a fight.
  • Instead, AJ begs her to tell how she fixed Sunset. Instead, Sunset simply asks "Why does it matter?"
  • Having no answer to that, instead she demands that Chitania give her back.
  • She begins a desperate battle, throwing everything she has at the Titan, but none of it works, and she's easily batted aside. Twilight tries to intervene, but Celestia forces her not to in order to prevent escalation.
  • Applejack breaks down, pleading with Sunset to tell her what she agreed to do with Chitania. Instead, Sunset happily declares that she has no idea! Nor, does she care.
  • Realizing just how deep Sunset is in, Applejack begs instead "Me instead"
  • Twilight tries to stop her, but is again held back by Celestia, who declares that Aj must do this on her own.
  • Despite all she offered, Chitania turns her down. She says AJ has a lot, just not what she's looking for. AJ tries again and again, but nothing works, and she is heartbroken.
  • In the end, she breaks down, wondering why Chitania couldn't be like te other Queens, and just lied. She admits she would have bought it, hook line and sinker, if she did. She would have called her friend.
  • Chitania honestly ponders this, pointing out it wouldn't have been real. AJ agrees, but points out... wouldn't it have been a nice lie for a while?
  • Shocking, Chitania seems to be considering this. In the end, she admits she's just not a very good liar, which Applejack agrees with. But...
  • "It's never too late to learn, is it?"
  • Yes, it is.
  • Sunset cutting in breaks her thoughts, and Chitania ponders it no more.
  • Applejack tries one last time, in vain, before both Titan, and former student, leave. All of Canterlot got to witness her fail. At last, Twilight gets to hug her, and she admits to Celestia that she messed up, and she failed Sunset.
  • Celestia agrees, but points out... she's not the first one.
  • Applejack admits she can't give up
  • Celestia tells her... don't.
  • With Sunset and Chitania, Sunset is happy again, and points out Chitty didn't need to come get her. She agrees to do all Chitty asks, and more, if she agrees to one more thing.
  • If Chitania is killing gods... Sunset wants in.
  • She proves this, when she goes to her old home, realizing along the way she can no longer remember her parents faces or anything about them, and destroys the Celestia doll so she can take out the prototype stone that she based the one in her chest off of. It is revealed to contain an essence of Celestia and as such, she says they might not have to break their way into heaven.
  • They have the key.

  • AB gives no fucks.
  • But when the beast admits why he does what he does, in search of the meaning of the mark on his side... AB cares.
  • That's a cutie mark.
  • And thus, the CMC help a star beast god thing figure out the meaning of his cutie mark!
  • That happened.

THREAD 129Edit

 

THREAD 130Edit

  • TWO FOR ONE EDITION!
  • Chitania and Sunset arrive at their destination, which is a brick building on the outskirts of town. There, Chitania shows why she needed Sunset's help, sort of. She reveals a case with something glowing inside that she got after battling a 'golem', but can't make work with herself thanks to compatibility issues. Sunset declares she'll make it work.
  • Then the door slams open and an irritated 13 stomps in, demanding to know what Chitania did.
  • Yelling occurs, intercut by Sunset having fun with the whole situation and screwing with 13, before Chitania eventually decides to tell her the truth about what happened at the square.
  • Though 13 is despondent due to how little her mother cares what her actions caused, some fast talking by Sunset puts her at ease, and convinces her that Chitty actually did a good thing.
  • Reluctantly, she asks if Chitania wants to spend some time with her, which she is all too excited to do.
  • Sunset joins them, saying she wants to get the hottest, spiciest food she can find. This proves to be her downfall, bathroom wise.
  • Dash tries training with Fluttershy, who's only job is to hold the watch. Chaos ensues, because of course it does.
  • Mr and Mrs Cake get a big payday when Celly needs her cakes.
  • AJ breaks down, and admits she messed up. After letting it sink in a bit, she realizes the only way to make this right is to get close to Sunset again, but she won't be able to while Chitania stands in her way. After a bit of thinking, she comes to the conclusion that maybe a certain someone will know...
  • Pinkie later stumbles across her trying to fit into the vent, and thinks shes committing suicide. Weird suicide, at that. After explaining her situation, they try fishing in a vent, obviously looking for Arana,. This goes on for a long time, before Pinkie points out that AJ never filed the forms saying Arana can come back and live there.
  • After a short search they come across her eating a sandwich, and Pinkie tries to be the bad cop for interrogation. When that's settled, Applejack asks her about Chitania, but instead Arana points out she doesn't know much, as she was just a little kid when they talked, and Chitania never really took her seriously. She also reminisces about her mom, pointing out how everyone gets mad when she tries to bring up her good points, so she doesn't want to do the same with Chitania. Instead, Applejack says she can talk about her mom however she likes, and that if anyone says different she'll straighten them out. With violence.
  • This makes the skitterbug happy.
  • AJ and Pinkie prepare to go, but before they do, Arana remembers one thing that might help them. She overheard that Twilight has a certain thing...
  • Chitania's diary.
  • Pinkie finds this cute.
  • Actarius inquires about 32's shelter, particularly how he funded it, and gets no answer.
  • Trenderhoof wants to get back to work.
  • Chrysalis tries a great many tricks to learn what is ailing Shining, all of them fail.
  • She puts together some grand plan again, but like always, it goes awry, thanks to 48, the ling with a gun and a banana, not being where he needed to be.
  • One job, 48. One job.
  • 29 continues his battle with he Nightgaurd captain, Potsticker. It intensifies, even if the fellow nightgard seem to not care, and Mayor Mare and Zecora enjoy the show, until they break through the floor.
  • Finally, they get down to the basics of what the issue is, that is to say 56 failing his 'test' and not being allowed in, and Potsticker says if 29 lets her hit him in the face, she'll let him try again. Without any hesitation, he does.
  • Only, 56 intercepts the attack intended for 29, an attack that is just barely stops in time. He points out that any place that would make him watch his family get hurt for a test is a place he didn't want to be in, so she can shove the job!
  • And, he passed.
  • Potsticker reveals this was all a test. The Nightgard are like a family, and they would never work with someone who would ignore their family being in pain just to get stronger, or let them take the fall for them. She also points out nobody else ever took her up on the offer to fight her, 29 is the first. He snobbishly tries to blow her off, until she points out he did a good job with 56, and he loses composure.
  • She says he's ready to start the long training to be a nightgard, right away.
  • 56 and 29 have a tearful goodbye, even though it will only be temporary, and after telling 29 he will make him proud, 56 leaves to begin his training.
  • 29 watches him go in tears, and says aloud he's already proud.
  • Twilight tries to research something involving Marechiveli. When Spike finds out, she bribes him with pictures of AJ in underwear.
  • Don't ask.
  • Lavan continues his search for whatever the chaos is trying to keep in, but while doing so someone gets the idea to roast marshmallows on his flame. After consuming a large number of these marshmallows, Angel Bunny realizes he can talk! After eating a few more, he gains powers, enough he can escape.
  • Lavan chases him down, eventually finding him now in control of the forest with the creatures bowing to him. When Angel Bunny begins to feel pain from the powers, Lavan reveals that's how he feels all the time, as he is a being that reality is trying to unmake every second, during his rant he grows several new parts of his old body.
  • Unable to cope with it, Angel Bunny gives the power back, and goes back to being normal, before Lavan puts him back where he was.
  • Berry Punch tries to get Mayor Mare's attention, despite the fact she's not around.
  • Shining Armor finds it very weird that only Chrysalis seems to be trying to discover his 'problem'...
  • Lightning Dust is rising to the challenge of her rival.
  • So is Spitfire
  • Rarity and Rainbow Dash learn of what transpired, and Rarity is positively livid that Sunset said such things, declaring she is going to give them a piece of her mind when she finds them. After some searching, they stop for some spicy food, despite Dash's protests and insistence that such went badly for Rarity last time, and they stumble across none other than Chitania! They're going to confront her, just as soon as Rarity gets that food. Priorities.
  • Luna won't notice Trixie.
  • Or leave Cheeirlee alone.

  • Chrysalis gets an update on 29 and 56
  • Screwloose is being held by some... unorthadox means.
  • After a song and dance number, the CMC explain to the star being just what a cutie mark is!
  • And... he's totally lost. The cutie mark is so vague it can mean literally anything. A flower can mean a teacher who helps students grow, or just... flowers.
  • Not knowing the answer, being even further off even, enrages him, and he prepares to wipe out the world, to which the shining knight from earlier prepares to meet the challenge and battle him. But then Applebloom notices his mark, which is a galaxy, makes a little heart. He too notices this, though he never has before. Using this, the trio explains that sure, it looks vague to most, but that's because to most it's like a star in the sky, just a bit of light among a lot of others. But if you look close enough, you'll see to whoever it belongs to, it's their whole world. A cutie mark can mean anything, but to whoever it belongs to, it means everything, and he can understand that too if he just looks close enough.
  • He understands at last, and his journey has ended! He hugs the CMC, Vekir, Winona and even the Sweetie Doll, and calls them his friends. He asks if they have any wish, and Applebloom says turn everything back to normal, despite him pointing out he can give ultimate power. She sticks with it, and he relents.
  • At the end, she even invites him to come to Sweet Apple Acres, before he leaves and everything is back to normal.
  • The Knight is joyous and happy, and tries to reward them, but Applebloom cuts him off and says she wants everything to go back to normal, and him being there is stopping that. He keeps trying to tell the backstory of the massive being and himself, but she's having none of it, and says she wants it back to the way it was. Eventually, he accepts this, and the invitation to join in at SAA on a later date as well, and leaves, sparing one last look to Sweetie Belle, who he had the most fun with.
  • Vekir, Winona and the Sweetie Doll don't know what to do now that everything is normal, and are afraid.
  • That's when a mare, who has a suit and was wearing one of those faceless masks before they were shredded, bursts in and asks how everything is normal and why isn't she dead and where's the cosmosis and did they always have those cutie marks?
  • The CMC look down, and she's absolutely right.
  • "Neat"
  • Everything had changed.

THREAD 131Edit

  • SPICY FOOD IS DELICIOUS EDITION!
  • 42 thinks Chrysalis has gone too far with her actions, Chrysalis disagrees.
  • How did 32 know they would end up at that restaurant? Because the universe hates him.
  • Pinkie and AJ go into Twilights lab in search of the mysterious Diary of Chitania! Sadly, she's not home. So, instead, they decide they're going to look for the answers on her computer!
  • Much tapping and random videos on said computer ensue.
  • Gwen and Pennydrop randomly decide to sing. It's adorable.
  • 18 is slowly but surely adding more assistants to her work.
  • Two's teacher may or may not be training her class to fight Chitania.
  • Twilight has.. something in a box. She will not show Spike.
  • Cadence is doing a lot better with the paperwork, and begrudgingly admits it only happened because of the reveal and wonders if she can thank Rarity.
  • Shining finally confronts Chrysalis on what she's doing with the plans, and unable to take it anymore, she breaks down and admits that there's just something wrong with him, and she doesn't know what it is.
  • Unable to deny it any longer, he harshly confronts her, asking if she has been reading his mind, which she vehemently denies. Thanks to this, she's able to finally break his barrier when he can't lie to her anymore, and instead of admitting, he just begs her not to let any of the others know, not wanting Cadence or 18 or Two to know how he feels.
  • Even though he doesn't say exactly what that is, she understands, and after more pleading from him, she says she won't and abruptly leaves, leaving Shining to wonder if this changed how she sees him, and steeling his resolve not to let anyone know.
  • But in truth, just the opposite has happened, after some thinking and soul searching, she realizes that deep down, all she wants to do is help him. Even if he's not exactly as she thought, she still cares about him the same way.
  • Doing the only thing she can do, she begins to plan.
  • Shining Armor took it the wrong way, though, and is now more determined than ever never to let anyone know.
  • The CMC decide to finally go home, giving no cares when the agent tries to tel of any backstory nonsense. They take Sweetie Doll with her, again not questioning why she is a doll of Sweetie Belle.
  • When SB implies she wants to take a shortcut, she gets a resounding NO.
  • They're going home.
  • Ms Coltsly, the seller of the mechs for Canterlot, gets a letter from her boss saying to go on the escort mission down to the Morlocks to sell robots to them. She does not want to go.
  • Spike confronts 12, who has been mislead about his name and the name of Charity by SL, and returns the gun after turning down an invitation to join the Gun Club.
  • 12 then confonts SL about this, and she may or may not have been fucking with him.
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz get calls, and remain unfazed despite any weirdness
  • 42 is not questioning Chrysalis's plan.
  • 88 finally gets a case, getting a comic book back for fifty bucks. Sold!
  • She goes to the house and after some talk with the terrible owner, the house droid decides to get the book back for free.
  • Suckerpunch and 41 meet SP's aunt! She's an oddly dressed, tall mare who looks like one of Chitania's worst disguises. She's also very, very into her wrestling persona. 41 asks if they can stay with her, she says yes.
  • Sp regrets this choice, a lot.
  • Bonbon ends up at the train station with Idris and Cheese. She wishes she hadn't.
  • PJ almost chokes on a watermelon, while Blueblood and Haymaker look on without pity.
  • 29 thanks MM and Zecora for coming with him to help get his cousin into the Nightguard, and they reveal they actually have stuff they want to do. He insists he does too, and totally has friends up there. Totally.
  • He may only have 32, but it's something! So he goes to visit, and finds a hot tub.
  • A very... nice looking hot tub. With a certain 'shark' in it threatening to gobble him up. He dives in anyway.
  • Spike questions why 77 is under a table. 77 does the same. The answer is "Magical horses are weird."
  • MM meets up with them looking for Pommel, and they have a nice talk, up till Spike pulls out Charity to talk to Rarity, and MM has PTSD flashbacks and runs off.
  • Luna notices Trixie, and has to teach her now. That's the rule.
  • 42 is having fun with her teleports.
  • 10 gets up to speed on what happened. It's... a long list.
  • BB and PJ visit Flim and Flam, who's cell is still destroyed, despite neither of them leaving.
  • Zecora is hanging out with Treehugger, Who just now notices she rhymes.
  • Chitania is actually almost happy spending time with her daughter, Sunset and Sweet Note, and is enjoying their conversation.
  • So of course, Rarity has to go mess it all up.
  • Said pony gets into a shouting match with Sunset, though due to how she says it it's impossible to tell who she's insulting or calling out specifically, as it fits for all four at the table equally, while Sunset throws back the barbs just as fast.
  • When it gets to a point where it looks like a fight might break out, Chitania realizes that if one does, her daughter is just going to run off again, probably back to the hive where she feels safe, and she might not ever want to try this again.
  • So, in desperation, Chitania tries the one thing nobody would ever expect.
  • "Can we talk about this later?"
  • It's revealed that the whole time, Rarity thought she was playing everything out exactly as she wanted. She saw the event like a noir novel, and had played it out in her mind, and the whole time she was trying to focus on making Sunset snap and do something rash so she could lock her up and let Aj confront her former student on her own terms, not caring what it would do to her reputation.
  • But now, thanks to this, the whole script got flipped, and if she pressed the matter she would look like the bad guy, and she thinks Chitania played her.
  • "Well, fuck."
  • Back at the lab, AJ and Pinkie run out of videos, and they never found Chitania's diary. That's when Pinkie points out it probably wouldn't be on a computer that got broken into anyway, and then deduces it's in the vault.
  • Then Aj starts hitting her... a lot.
  • "IT WAS WORTH IT!"

THREAD 132Edit

  • RARITY WHAT DID YOU DO EDITION!?
  • Pinkie Pie and AJ, now having access to Chitty's diary, decide to start flipping through the entries.
  • Many a short, darkly funny stories commence.
  • 88 gets the comic, only to learn it actually does belong to the owner of the house, and she's been betrayed! The one who hired her zaps the owners robot and runs off with the comic, leading to a massive chase through Canterlot during which she repeatedly forgets she can fly.
  • Zecora, while hanging out with Tree Hugger, spots MM running through town, and gives chase after her friend.
  • SA gets a staredown from 2, and he thinks it's because she caught on or Chrysalis told her whats up. Instead, he just has a booger... not a big deal.
  • Luna is screwing with Trixie.
  • Harry the Bear is apparently an effective peacekeeper.
  • Celestia goes out to actually do something about Sunset, and finds the torn up remains of the doll version of herself.
  • Devastated that Sunset no longer wants any part of her in her life, Celestia brings the doll's consciousness back to it's head, to learn of what transpired. Sadly, she doesn't remember much, but she does reveal that Sunset is working with Chitnia willingly and took the stone from her.
  • Resolved, Celestia decides to get off her ass and actually do something.
  • 29 is relaxing in the tub dead to the world, and Acty and JJ notice that 32 stopped pulling on them. Worried with how long he's been down there, Actarius finally breaks down and asks what he's doing under there. 29 obliges, lazily pulling the other ling up from where he had been, somewhere around 29's lap, and with a sashay 32 creeps over to Acty and JJ and reveals what he has been doing this whole time.
  • "I'm pulling your legs."
  • Actarius and JJ have a good laugh, and then leave. 32 huffs that the first part didn't get a reaction, and blames 29's lack of acting. 29 gives no fucks, he's chill.
  • Still, 32 says he can help work on said acting skills...
  • At least, until MM races in screaming, and lands right on him. Zecora comes in soon after.
  • A heart to heart happens where 29 and Zecora hugs MM and tells her she shouldn't be afraid of stuff like that anymore, she does a good job, and if anyone tried it they'd kick their ass.
  • MM feels safe again.
  • 32 just gets annoyed he almost drowned, and stomps off with a huff. Upon learning of certain activities going on outside, he decides to go 'be an ambassador' and protect his hivemate.
  • Nothing to do with revenge, no sir.
  • Idris only notices Bonbon left. And when Lyra shows up on he scene, she is quick to leave, via flashes and jumping onto a train.
  • The CMC, on their way to canterlot, realize they're bored, and wish something would happen. Then something happens, and they regret.
  • SA sadly has to tell 2 her idea of marchmalley roads is not to be. But, after a talk about responsibility, she gets an idea...
  • Blueblood might be racist.
  • 42 goes crazy with the teleports in training, and punches.
  • That's when the guard has a brilliant idea, cadence plushies!
  • This actually works, and they get some hits in. She still 'claims victory', though. Victory in this case meaning plushies.
  • Twilight tries to bribe Chrysalis with a cake. This cake is apparently a sculpt of Applejack's ass.
  • Twilight has a great many questions for Spike now.
  • 10 wodners if the Hive Gazette needs her anymore, BBB puts that to rest.
  • 12 somehow knows everything is going wrong.
  • NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENTS
  • Sunset thinks everything is going swimmingly, until someone says "Screw this"
  • It turns out, the one saying it is one of many. Those many are the entire population of the restaurant they're currently in.
  • The Canterlot Elite all arm their robots and activate their infusions, and one by one join Rarity's side, to help her like they did Applejack back at the Arm-Break incident.
  • Rarity is emboldened by this, and thanks to being relieved she no longer has to fear being thought less of, challenges Sunset in the hopes she'll jump.
  • Instead, Chitania thinks Rarity is after her, and upon seeing her daughter banging her head against the table and grumbling actually tries to end the fight before it begins, so that 13 will not run off.
  • However, she doesn't get more than a "I'm not" out, before one of the Canterlot ponies panic when she moves towards them and shoots her right in the eye. When she actually feels pain from this, the others lay it on in an attempt to put her down.
  • It doesn't work.
  • And now she is very... very mad.
  • Sunset is happy though.
  • During this, Sunset has a mental conversation with 13, who is preparing to leave this before it gets bad. She points out that her mother was trying not to fight, that they started it, and that the shot to her eye was a magic that would have been lethal to anyone else, and could have been lethal to her mom. Despite this, when she was weak, they tried to finish her off.
  • Reluctantly, 13 comes around to seeing what she means, and begins to doubt that the ponies are as good as her Queen claims them to be. If for no other reason than that, she joins the fray.
  • Sweet Note doesn't need pushing, she just gets to showing them how they do it down at the docks.
  • With the occasional help from 32 who is 'looking after his hivemate', of course.
  • Things are going badly, as nobody can even slow Chitania down, Rarity and Dash included.
  • The Titan is overcome by rage, as she is now sure that her daughter will never want to spend time with her again like she just did, and she doesn't know if she should anyway, and this is leading to a lot of punches.
  • As a last ditch effort, Dash tries to hit her with a Rainboom, just like she did back at the train, but this time Chitania is prepared, and blocks it, badly injuring the pegasus.
  • When Sunset starts mocking her, a frantic Rarity tries to shoot her, but Sunset dodges ever time, until it ends when the Queen hits Rarity.
  • She's not down, but she might be out...
  • With Pinkie and AJ, after getting frustrated reading page after page, AJ starts frantically flipping through them.
  • Pinkie tries to stop her, and she does when Aj breaks down and reveals that the reason she's so desperate is despite Chitty being here all this time, she didn't learn anything. She knows nothing about her foe, and when she tried to stop her from taking Sunset, she couldn't, and it was all her fault.
  • Pinkie cheers her up and gives her support, because that's what Pinkie does.
  • And just in time, because in her frantic flipping, it seems they landed on exactly what they needed to...
  • Chitania's diary entry that say "I'm pregnant".

THREAD 133Edit

  • RARITY DONE DID IT NOW EDITION!
  • Two rolls on the ground going Wabba. Spitfire does not question it, nor should you.
  • Sweet Note is wrecking it in the fight
  • 13 goes through the crowd to meet the one who supposedly shot first, never attacking, and never needing to, because everyone who tries to attack her 'slips' or has some other misfortune happen.
  • After interrogating him, she gets no answers, he just tries to shoot her a whole lot.
  • She finally accepts she's not going to get anything out of him, and with one little push, she sends him on an adventure. An unlucky adventure where everything goes wrong until he's plopped out on the street in pain. Afterwards, she realizes it doesn't matter if Sunset was right, everyone wants her mom dead anyway.
  • Luna is probably screwing with trixie
  • Twilight asks Chrysalis to ask 13 to ask Chitania how she did the heart thing with Sunset. Chrysalis tells her no, but is proud of her.
  • Celestia, with Dollestia, decides to buckle down and really get at being a princess again. She can't confront Sunset yet, so in the meanwhile, she's going to try to reconcile her problems.
  • First off, fixing Jetset, after pointing out she's been a terrible teacher.
  • Shiny tries to help the others with their addiction problems. When they up all the stuff he does, he thinks the better of it.
  • Batmom and Dadling decide to go out to eat. They choose poorly.
  • Rarity is being used as a punching bag while Chitania wails on her, Sunset taunts her, and she can't fight back.
  • 56 bonds with the Nightgards over spices.
  • Featherweight and a reporter argue over who has to cover the fight.
  • Spitfire thinks it's too quiet, Mane-Iac fixes that.
  • The changelings keep doing whatever it is they're doing. Even they don't know.
  • Actarius decides to go out and help the others, much to JJ's annoyance it does not end well.
  • 32 watches as he's mostly shot because everyone wants to shoot JJ.
  • Rarity stops Chitania for half a second with cabbages.
  • Spike and 77 talk about carpet
  • the Thief escapes 88's grasp!
  • Rarity keeps trashtalking to keep Chitania's attention, all while getting the marshmallow beaten out of her. But it's proven to be a ruse! As Dash finishes what she's been doing unseen, and gets the last of the crowd out of harms way, leaving only Rarity, Chitania, Sunset and 13 behind in the bar!
  • Which Sunset and Chitania both knew was happening, because of the less blasts shooting her, but nevermind.
  • Sunset mocks her on that one, of course. And then points out that this just means Chitty doesn't have to hold back.
  • But Rarity has a plan! Her whole idea was to get all the ponies clear, stun Chitania and Sunset, and then leave, trapping the four inside the building which is currently surrounded by the royal guard! They and Dash are just waiting for Rarity's signal. If Chitania wants to fight, she'd put her own daughter in danger of the building collapsing, and has no bartering chip. Rarity admits it's cruel to leave her and Sweet Note inside to be used like that, but sees no alternative. Her plan has worked flawlessly so far!
  • And now it's not working at all!
  • Realizing that her previous blasts, no matter how much she forced it, didn't even make the Titan blink, she decided to dig deep, deep, deeeeep down into her new alicorn magic, to hit Chitty with everything she has!
  • One little problem... she can't control it.
  • She accidentally taps too deep, and is completely overwhelmed. Her entire body lights up with magic, and she's about to explode!
  • As a last ditch effort, Chitania grabs her, and Sunset tears off, fearing for her own life and just barely remembering to grab 13 and Sweet Note on the way. 13 begs for them to go back, but they won't.
  • Outside, Pommel has gathered the Royal Guard in an impressive perimeter, and think they are ready for anything. Knowing that Rarity's signal will come any second, Dash claims there's no time to explain what happened, and to wait.
  • They wait for about a second before Sunset breaks out, running full tilt and screaming in horrified terror at the thought of dying again
  • Then everything explodes, and a light shoots up into the sky.
  • Surprisingly, most everyone is fine! The blast was mostly contained, and everyone should make it out okay!
  • Except Rarity, who's limp body is tossed in front of a shocked Dash.
  • Chitty's fine, by the by. Scorched, but fine.
  • And angry, very angry.
  • And even more angry after Celestia bolts down from the sky, and nails her right in the head, sending her THOUGH Canterlot's floor, and out the bottom.
  • Chitty responds by punching her into a building.
  • Then Pommel tells everyone to shoot her already!

  • AB, SB and SL's train is out of control.
  • Cadence freaks out seeing 2 in her wedding dress, until Two fwooshes smaller, then she finds it cute, then freaks out when 18 implies she will have her own kids someday. It's a mess.

  • Fancy and Fluer are going to investigate the light
  • Chitania is very angry
  • Nurse Redheart is going to go help
  • Sunset finally stops running, and lets 13 and SN drop. The latter two are worried that the explosion actually managed to kill Chitania, until they hear her roar.
  • Sunset snaps at 13, asking her if she finally believes what was said before, 13 can't deny it.
  • Sweet Note tries to intervene, but gets shoved aside, and Sunset presses further, and 13 breaks further down.
  • After 13 sees Celestia attack her mom again, her mind is made up.
  • 13 turns around, and starts to head towards the battle, declaring that if they want a fight, Chitania can bring it. Because she's not just her mother, she's Queen Chitania...
  • "...The Titan"

THREAD 134Edit

  • CHITTY DID A SEXY TRANSFORMATION SEQUENCE EDITION!
  • 2's teacher starts by questioning this "Momsie" character 2 has shown. Then thinks the better of it.
  • Lightning Dust sees her chance, and she's going to take it.
  • JJ chews out Acty then cheers him up with juggling.
  • Idris is suddenly very unwilling to go to Canterlot.
  • Chrysalis says she's not going to do what Twi asks because what she needs to do is way more important and will make her mad. This makes Twilight very worried, but Chrysalis asserts it's worth it.
  • Blueblood tries to convince PJ not to go out there, unsuccessfully. When she leaves, he decides he can't stay either.
  • Celestia is a little angry.
  • Berry punch saves the hooch. The hooch is Lyra... go figure.
  • Trixie sees the light from Canterlot and tells a previously napping Luna, who didn't see it and doesn't believe her when she says it was there. Trixie thinks this is a test, but Luna bluntly says if she runs off she's not teacher her anymore.
  • After some deliberation, Trixie chooses to go help her friends, leaving a confused Luna to think it was just too much for her.
  • Annoyed, Luna goes to the spa to get a treatment, and runs Aloe and Lotus ragged with her confusing requests.
  • Lucky Strikes is way too excited to be in this.
  • Two calls Spitfire "Spitty", which she doesn't like. After implying there will be punches in the future of anyone named that, 2 asks if she should call 42 spitty, which Spitfire does like. A lot.
  • Tree Hugger is chill.
  • Pommel is despondent when the guard are doing everything right, but they just don't have the firepower to put Chitania down. Sadly, he admits they just have to wait until a princess arrives.
  • Dash tries to draw her attention, daring her to come at her and implying it's her that Chitania wants. This works, and Chitania prepares to hit her, a move Dash knows she can't dodge but will hopefully quell her rage.
  • Chitania is struck at the last minute by a beam of light that grazes Dash's head and knocks her out. It is revealed to be a calculated strike by Celestia, one that sends Chitania clear out of the city with minimal damage. She regrets hitting Dash, but an inch or so change would have resulted in more damage.
  • Chitania does not fly back, instead just jumping and trying to smash the princess. Said princess is revealed to be an illusion, one made of bombs.
  • Pommel is enjoying the show.
  • A Crystal Guard grills the changelings about an 'incident' upstairs. They respond by mocking his inability to pick out who is who. He says he knows it was 46 and just didn't want to reveal he wrecked the toilet, before running off in tears because none of them knew who he was.
  • Shining discovers how the guard kept getting hits in on 42. He does not take the fact they're using effigy's of his wife well.
  • YOU GET PUNCHES! AND YOU GET PUNCHES! EVERYONE GETS PUNCHES YAAYYYY!
  • When they switch up to 42 dolls, it's less than effective.
  • 18 feels like she's missing something, which is when Two sets stuff on fire.
  • 29 starts to chew out MM for doing something so stupid, but when she feels bad Zecora lays into him, and he takes it back and apologizes for being a dick. Then he gets forgiveness hugs... then the building collapses, because that was related.
  • That restaurant owner isn't getting his money back.
  • 32 finds a lot of these things suspicious...
  • the Canties suddenly realize shooting Chitania was dumb... just now.
  • 88 realizes she got duped, and meets up with Lavan, who is noticing the battle. She advises not going near Chitania, due to her attempts to slay gods.
  • The train with the CMC is still out of control, and a bison is, bluntly put, unhelpful when he suggests, and goes through with, jumping off the train.
  • Chrysalis and Twilight banter before Cadence, 18 and 42 arrive, and all together they go into Shining's office, where Chrysalis says that she was right, there was something wrong with Shining, and she knows what it is. She ignores both the other four mares freaking out and Shining desperately trying to stop her and talk, and simply says there is something wrong...
  • "And it's all my fault."
  • Sweet Note confronts Sunset about sending 13 off and tries to call her out, but Sunset rebukes her and turns it around on her, convincing her that she really does only want Chitania to make it out alive.
  • Left with no other options to save Chitty, Sweet Note has to sit back and let it happen.
  • Pommel is noticing something weird about the blast where Rarity was, and needs answers.
  • Chitania gets beat down hard by Celestia, who unleashes her full magical abilities on the Titan, beating her across Canterlot until she is far away from anyone else while using illusions and trickery to prevent a return attack.
  • By the end of it, even when Chitania tricks her back and gets a solid hit in, it's not enough to bring Celestia down, or even knock her down. She is soon battered and about to be finished off by a final attack when she hears a voice in her head...
  • ~Mother... I'm sorry.~
  • Thirteen has a one-way psychic conversation with her where she finally has a good heart to heart on how little she understands Chitania, and how little her mother understood her back. She reveals that the day Chittty hit her was the day she finally saw the monster everyone else claimed she was, and she feared if she ever ascended she would become just like her.
  • She reveals that there is a block in Chitania's mind that prevented her from going all out, enough she would never kill any pony. In a twist, she reveals it was something Chitania herself put there, either intentionally or subconsciously with the same latent powers that she passed down to 13, ones that never developed, because she knew 13 hated such violence.
  • After seeing what she was willing to give up and do, 13 understands, and says she knows that deep down, Chitania really does love her, and she loves her back. Which is why she breaks that limiter, because it looks like the princesses really are out to kill her, and she doesn't want to lose her mother again.
  • She says she loves her one more time, and cuts the connection.
  • The Titan is back, in all her giant glory.
  • Celestia tries talking to her, but is interrupted by missiles. So many missiles. Celestia curses Pennydrop for this.
  • Shockingly, it's Gwen doing it, and PD is trying to convince her not to.
  • When they run out of missiles, Chitania is fine, and heading right for them.

  • PJ tries stringing up wires between buildings to trip Chitty. It doesn't work. Haymaker punches her.
  • Chrysalis admits fault when she reveals Shining's current issues with murderous feelings, stating that it was residual magic left over from the zombieification during the wedding.
  • Cadence and the others are understandably upset and demand she fix him by removing it, when she states she can't because the magic would have faded, everyone blames her. Abruptly, Shining tells everyone to leave.
  • They do so, and he throws up a shield before laying into her, calling her out for all the lies. She admits they're lies, but they're ones that let everyone see him as the stallion they all think he is, and she takes all the blame for making him act different. He tells her they'll all hate her for this, but she just accepts it and says she's willing to be the badguy again, if it means he gets help. He asks her to take it back, but she says she can't, because he's getting worse, and this is the only way to help him.
  • Reluctantly, he drops the shield, and Chrysalis goes to let the others back in. That's when it turns out it wasn't a soundproof shield, they heard everything.
  • He says they need to talk
  • Bonbon is not who she says she is... sort of.
  • Lucky strikes muses the fact that they don't have anti-dragon weapons
  • In desperation, Celestia has to let Chitania go at the airship, as she can't keep stalling her and saving everyone. She knows this means Chitty will tear them apart, but there's no other way.
  • Someone down below sees this, and records it.
  • PD finally gets the thing working, and her airship transforms into Metal Deer Haw... moth.
  • It looks like a giant metal moth, as Gwen points out.
  • But that's not trademarked, so it's still Metal Deer Hawk.
  • Everyone outside sees it's a moth.
  • While that's going on, Lightning Dust arrives with the WB's and they go in formation to get everyone out of danger. Celly is impressed.

  • The CMC resign themselves to their fate, and Vekir does not question the giant mecha moth.
  • Poindexter comes to help Spitfire
  • The battle between mecha moth and Chitania comences! Full Kaiju battle in the sky goes off, with the moth pulling off an impressive array of abilities, most of them magical in nature.
  • Chitty is struck several times by hit and run tactics and the moth's far superior speed, but eventually manages to get a hold on the moth after it tries a big finisher attack, which Chitty dodged by shrinking down just in time, and is about to punch them to scraps.
  • But they're saved at the last minute by a rocket to Chitty's eye! Once they're clear, she's struck again, this time by a familiar bomb so big it covers half of the airspace above Canterlot! It knocks Chitty out of the sky and scorched her bad, but she gets back up to find her opponent is waiting for her.
  • It's DIAMOND TIARA! She's back, and she's sporting new black tactical gear, with TBDLIATU adorned with new stripes. Not only that, she seems to be in direct contact with... her mother!? Said mother makes her spout stupid catchphrases for some reason.
  • After that blow, Chitty notices she's starting to slow down.
  • With all the damage she's taken, it's hitting Chitania that she might not win this fight...

THREAD 136Edit

  • HANGING BY A THREAD EDITION!
  • Acty either wants a filly or a rocket launcher, JJ isn't sure...
  • Sunset, while running towards the battle and seeing Chitania attacked, is saved from a tiny rock from none other than 29! He's happy when he realizes that she is back to life, having not known this or any of the circumstances about it. Sunset, a little annoyed at him but willing to talk when he reveals he kept writing to her, but since she wasn't home she never wrote back, reveals what happened to revive her, and to her surprise he actually gives Chitania the benefit of the doubt.
  • She has to leave, but gives him one warning not to hang around the princesses too much, and if things go wrong 'he'll be the last'.
  • Celestia confronts Diamond Tiara about the bomb she used, the Castle Crusher. When the filly refuses to reveal how it works or what's it made of, she gets suspicious, only to have DT call her out by pointing out that she was more than willing to share everything with her when she was on the A-team and risking her life for them, and Celestia never spoke up when AJ kicked her out. DT gives one last bitter word that Celestia blew her chance before she flies off, and Celestia admits it's not the first time.
  • Mane-Iac sets Spitfire's hair on fire... don't ask.
  • Pennydrop and Gwen get a call from a surprising ally, DT's mother! Spoiled Rich goes on to talk about toylines and such things, making it obvious all she cares about is marketing DT's new fame. She herself is in Trottingham, with Silver Spoon. Said filly is wishing for suicide.
  • Chitania, pushed to her limit, starts to wonder if there's a way out of this, and the ground seems very tempting...
  • PJ attempts to go after Chitania again with explosives despite Haymaker's protests. Blueblood also protests, only his version involves shooting her line just as she starts flying, and her ending up face first on the ground.
  • Watchdog and Siegfried, heading towards Canterlot in the baloon, finally notice the airships and try to turn around to no avail.
  • Celestia starts to get excited because it looks like it's working, and every civilian in her path has been cleared. But when Lightning Dust points out she's headed for the edge, a chilling thought occurs to her...
  • Sunset notices everything is happening too fast, and tries to get to the battle quicker. But along the way, she's stopped by Pommel, who is looking for some answers as to what Chitty is 'planning', as he is still going off the idea that she started the battle and used some strange magic to blow up the restaurant. He reaches out to the side of her that grew up in Canterlot to help bring her down.
  • Sunset mocks and rebukes him, and when he finally has had enough, he threatens to arrest her. She rises to the challenge, but it proves pointless.
  • out of nowhere, he is hit in the face by a detonated pepper spray canister, and Sweet Note charges him and distracts him long enough for Sunset to make an escape. After he pins her down, he switches gears to ask Sweet Note for information, promising her protection, money, and a lighter sentence after all the assault she did in the bar brawl. He pleads with her to help him and that he's on her side, but all he gets in response is her biting her ear, and that's not all.
  • After a speech where she details the rules of the street to never trust guards, she also reveals something that hasn't been seen since her first day with Chity. That is, that she's actually really strong. She takes him by surprise, powerbombing him and keeping him from fighting back, all while admitting she doesn't care if she gets locked up this time, since she has someone worth protecting.
  • She suddenly jerks forwards, and it's revealed that Daw hit her with a magical burst of her sword. The attack was too severe, and now Sweet Note has a bad wound on her head and is unconscious. Daw is apologetic, having truly not meant to do that, and Pommel sends her off to go get some help.
  • Shining is not going to therapy, until his wife pulls out the wife card. He's doomed.
  • A changeling is offered a 'position' by Photo Finish, he takes her up on it.
  • 12 keeps SL distracted with ice cream. He sort of regrets it.
  • Roseluck starts a band, it does not go well.
  • Zecora imagines going giant and fighting Chitania
  • Chitania decides to end this as soon as she's sure everyone she cares about is clear, and Applejack finally emerges from the lab!
  • She also thinks about going back inside with Pinkie, but doesn't.
  • Spike finally notices Charity has been going off all this time, and he and 77 leave.
  • Two annoys Spitfire in the quiet chair.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Everyone thinks they have Chitty on the run when she reaches the corner of the city, and are planning to unleash everything when she's clear of the city and they can nuke her.
  • To their surprise, she abruptly stops, and starts fighting back, effectively defeating the guard and Wonderbolts in one attack, and even managing to get the better of DT and Celestia, the latter when she takes a blow that would have blown up in the former's face.
  • When Gwen and PD charge her, threatening to finish her off, she pulls off one last trick. Her size magic.
  • Only, she doesn't shrink like before, but thanks to her training from long ago goes even further beyond what she ever had previously, and is tall enough to literally catch and hold the Mecha Moth like a toy before tossing it into the mountain. Though she is not out of the fight, the airship is badly damaged.
  • Then, to everyone's horror, she flies up, and then places her hooves down on the side of Canterlot.
  • And begins to press.
  • Everyone panics as Canterlot is nearly ripped clear off the side of the mountain and tries their best to stop her, including DT and Celestia pulling off a combo attack that just barely fails.
  • In despair, they realize they can't do anything, and Chitania thinks she's won, while lamenting that she actually liked Canterlot, but still decides to bring it down, and all looks lost.
  • Only to have herself run out of power at the last moment.
  • All the battle had proven too much for her, and the strain of her new size too great, she can no longer stay in her more massive form, and when she shrinks down to Titan size, she's out of juice.
  • Then the counterattack starts.
  • Canterlot joins together and utterly batters her, with everyone from the Wonderbolts to the Guard to even the normal unicorns laying down severely damaging fire on her.
  • Eventually, after a finishing blow by Celestia she can't even handle her regular Titan form, and shrinks down to normal size. Everyone prepares to fire, only to have one last attack land. That attack is a speeding train, the CMC's speeding train specifically, that does the last blow.
  • She's barely standing now, but still tries to challenge them. Celestia gives her one last chance to surrender.
  • Knowing that if she does, she'll simply be killed in prison after they make a mockery of her, Chitania connects with 13 mentally, and tells her she is going to go down fighting, doing this to prove to 13 that so long as you keep fighting until the very end, they can't take what makes you strong.
  • She finally, at last, tells her daughter 'I love you', and then she charges.
  • And Chitana is gone... literally!
  • Everyone is shocked when she just straight up vanishes, looking like she teleported away at the last second. Everyone is at first sad they didn't get to finish her off, but eventually, everyone begins to cheer! They won! They defeated Chitania and brought her down, finally getting back at her for what she did back at her first arc!
  • Everyone celebrates, and things are going good!
  • "WHAT IN TARNATION IS GOING ON!?"
  • Applejack arrives at the scene, and DT, Gwen and PD are more than happy to take some potshots at her absence. Only, Applejack has a few questions. Specifically, why Chitania went crazy.
  • It turns out, nobody can actually answer that, everyone arrived well after the fight had begun, and the only accounts they heard were second hand saying she started a fight that got out of control.
  • Though AJ brings up possibilities, they all get brushed off, and Canterlot as a whole begins to party!
  • Only AJ is not getting into the swing of things, and as she looks out over Canterlot, Celestia asks what she's looking for.
  • AJ replies "The truth"
  • After everyone leaves, it's revealed that Chitty didn't teleport at all! Sunset Shimmer cast an illusion to hide their presence, which entailed staying perfectly still, until they were all gone, and after a mental confirmation with 13 that her mother is alive, Sunset takes Chitania and leaves the city.
  • But she promises they'll be back, someday.
  • Even unconcious... Chitania smiles.

THREAD 137Edit

  • Aj suggest farming out the load of paperwork to 18. She does so, and nearly crushes her.
  • 13 is bitter about what happened, cursing the ponies as she walks to the castle and mockingly telling them to cheer, because her mother will come back someday and destroy them all for this. AJ catches her just before she reaches the portal and tries to talk to her, but 13, still thinking that the Princesses are out to kill her mother, blows her off and uses her mind control to make AJ forget she even saw her and leave. She lets a guard see her go through the portal so he can tell everyone she's gone, and she heads back to the Empire.
  • Where, coincidentally, she finds Chrysalis thinking everything is going good. Poor girl
  • Shiny, Twilight and Cadence go through the portal because the latter 2 think Shining needs to see his mother right now. What they find does not help Shining's condition at all.
  • LD breaths in her success.
  • AJ insists to Celestia that something isn't right, even as Celly brushes off the idea and is more content with how happy her citizens are, and that they feel like heroes because for once they got to join in and not just rely on the 'chosen heroes'.
  • Despite Celly's words, Aj decides she's going to try to find the truth anyway.
  • Speaking of, Lucky Strike and the others are feeling pretty pumped.
  • When Shining learns it was Chitty who wrecked the city and Sunset Shimmer was helping her, he gets a little mouthfoamy.
  • PJ rants that Blueblood kept her out of the fight, while Haymaker points out while that was a good idea.
  • AB and the CMC finally make it back to the castle just in time! AB says to just pretend like they were camping, but Scootaloo points out that's stupid, and with how long they've been gone AJ must have turned Equestria inside out looking for her, and they should just come clean. AB shuts her up and plays it cool.
  • And, surprisingly, it works! Aj didn't know they were gone, and just thinks they hid in the castle during the attack. She even brushes off Vekir's presence, and doesn't notice Sweetie Doll's at all! She apologized to AB that she hasn't been around much and for cancelling their trip, and promises AB that she's going to do better this time after she's done with her investigation.

  • A dark presence finds a book in the bottom of the catacombs.
  • Honeyheart, Jetset's nurse friend, can't make it to Canterlot.
  • Chitania finally wakes up and finds Sunset waiting for her. Said changeling is so beaten she can't move, but when she realizes Sunset saved her she implies they're even. Sunset rebukes that, saying that she is far too indebted to Chitania to let that happen. She says she owes Chitty too much, and they're in this together
  • When asked how long it'll take her to get back on her hooves, Sunset gives two options. Dripfeed until Chitty is better natually, which will take months and not work perfect, or Chitty gives her some changeling magic despite how much it hurts, and she gets her back in no time. Chitty picks the latter.
  • Sunset leaves, promising she'll come back, while Chitty can't move and can only lament that they're going to regret not killing her when they had the chance.
  • 32 finds JJ and acty dancing, and makes implications. Said implications go unnoticed.
  • Spike finds Blueblood returning his gun to the Gunclub room, and is bitter that even Blueblood got to help out, while he didn't. Blueblood points out he didn't help, all he did was keep a friend from joining in, and then brings up that Spike was better off not helping. He says Chitania is just too far beyond them, pointing out that Spike knows he's weak, while she has no such illusions, and worst case scenario he would have gotten in the way.
  • He says if Spike wants to challenge her, he's going to have to 'unlock' himself, whatever that means.

  • AJ tells her no on all counts, and finally she hears the story from 13's perspective. Although she's weary of taking 13's word for it, She also learns that Chitania really does think they're out to murder her, and she did try to stop the fight back when it started.
  • Eventually she puts everything together, and Chrysalis agrees they need to fix this.
  • In a surprising show of friendship, Chrysalis opts not to stay out of the whole mess, and says she'll help AJ fix what happened, even if it seems impossible. Aj is likewise touched Chrysalis came to her first, and Chrysalis said she just needed some honesty.

  • But she won't let Rarity give up, because Rarity is her friend. Reluctantly, she accepts.

  • They talk, with Sunset trying to act mysterious and powerful to coax him into freaking out when she reveals everything that happened, but he stays mostly passive during it, much to her annoyance.

THREAD 141Edit

  • POLITICS EDITION!
  • Thirty Two, at the request of 42, gets put on morphine.
  • You pretty much know what happens next.
  • Two, 29, JJ/Acty and many others all get an earful of Crazyling.
  • The construction pony, still angry her wrecking ball was broken, attacks the embassy to get money for it. In desperation, 88 has Lavan fix it. It works, but now instead of destroying things, it teleports them to the bottom of a deep trench. Which means it works... better?
  • After this, 88 heads out to see what 32 is up to, still unaware he was injured.
  • Also, there are singing bits invovled.
  • The changeling who went off with Photo Finish earlier is now starring in a movie of some kind, and his co stars, a dragon and a griffon, are making it interesting.
  • 42 is holding up alright, despite how she rants to Shining.
  • Twi asks Pinkie what videos she saw, and Pinkie's attempt to cover up the answer fails spectacularly.
  • DT tries to get into the subspace room, but is rebuked by someone using it for random stuff.
  • Pinkie's reasoning behind wanting to make Chitty and Sunset form a band so they won't be evil has some holes in it.
  • As does her thought to throw Chitty a birthday party to lure her out.
  • After deciding to no longer question the embassy thing, Chrysalis and AJ resume running from an angry Celestia.
  • Derpy and Cloudchaser make a giant out of control stormcloud so they can stop it and be heroes.
  • This plan falls apart when they cannot actually stop the thing.
  • Sunset swipes all her and Chitty's stuff, having mindzotzed the guards so they never saw her coming.
  • Snake Eyes tries to get information out of the assassin, and he succeeds. After boasting such to a guard, he demands to see a princess.
  • Chrysalis has no backup plan in case she dies, and this is worrying to AJ.
  • Luna skips out on her bill of paying the spa twins after her treasury bond is revealed to no longer be legal.
  • Dash hears that LD is currently the favorite for Wonderbolt Captain, and gets back in the game.
  • 18 turns down the lings when they ask for money to buy guns.
  • Aj has Derpy deliver cake ingredients to the cooks, and she pulls it off this time.
  • 2 tells Mane-iac she and Spitfire can leave, and MI says that Spitfire is taking a nap. After putting a pillow on her face... for a long time.
  • It turns out, she's not dead, but when she finds the Crystal Airforce on fire, she wishes she was.
  • Aj is looking after Dash this time.
  • Daw tries to get in to see Sweet Note, but is rebuked by the guard. She's despondent, until she gets invited to a lunch by none other than Seventy Seven.
  • They have a heart to heart, and talk about their troubles, and 77 helps clear up some misconceptions about first impressions.
  • Celestia catches AJ, and tries to take her cake, but it gets destroyed.
  • A changeling wants to hit witches with a super soaker while they wear shirts... everyone is confused.
  • Honey Heart is tricked out of her tree place by a diamond dog, who captures her.
  • Aj and Chrysalis talk, and come to the conclusion to make Love the official currency of the changelings, and set up an exchange rate so they can actually get some bits/paid for their work.
  • This requires help. Loud, very happy help from the mare who knows love better than anyone.
  • Cadence is so very, very, veryyyyy happy she gets to do political math stuff.
  • Shining doesn't believe it, but he doesn't want to wake up either.
  • Sweetie Doll tries to make her own friends. Somehow, she ends up with Pinkie's old 'friends'.
  • The Crystal Ponies, needing questions answered but unwilling to wait for the royal couple to come back, ask the only other one who gets anything done to deal with them.
  • 18, after MANY times reiterating she is not Cadence, accepts.
  • Celly has fun messing with Spike and Jetset, the latter is not appreciative.
  • The Nightguard are off to do something as yet unrevealed.
  • Spoiled Rich and Silver Spoon talk, where we learn Spoiled Rich was away because she was 'sick' and 'needed treatment' that Ponyville couldn't supply, SS doesn't buy it for a second.
  • Suckerpunch and 41 knock out their opponents by accident
  • Screwloose and 12 have a talk, where SL admits that 12 aside she wants to kill all the changelings because of how little they make her feel, and they debate what would happen if all changelings died. 12, strangely, is very accepting of the idea of his species getting wiped out, and thinks Screwloose could pull it off if she put her mind to it. In the end, 12 jokes that the only way to keep her from doing it would be for her to have his kid, as she wouldn't hurt her own child.
  • Also, 12 finally finds she has love for him.
  • 007, at a dead end with his investigation, decides to do something rash, and gets the item he had the Quarry Eel get so very long ago, and Blossom, still hidden, gives him a map to somewhere.
  • Chitty is angry she keeps getting left behind.
  • The changelings get guns. All is lost.
  • Sweet Note, still terrified, gets a visit from Applejack, who first tries to trick SN into talking, but when that doesn't works she switches gears, and instead says she's going to find Chitty and Sunset anyway, and when she does, she's going to tell them it was Sweet Note who lead them to her.
  • The mare is horrified, but AJ just keeps going, telling her that locking her up is nothing, and helps nobody, but if she puts out an announcement that SN pointed them in the right direction, they'll get sloppy, mess up, and then she can strike. Sure, Chitty will come after her, and SN knows it, but risking one life to save a thousand others is worth it.
  • Since she's going to do it anyway, SN might as well give what she knows, since that way at least she'll get something out of it.
  • She's scared, she knows she's doomed, and she knows there's only one thing to do.
  • "Go fuck yourself"
  • Aj is shocked, admitting she thought she'd crack. Strangely, her accent drops right there.
  • That all makes sense when her disguise falls away, and it's revealed to be Sunset, who is there to get SN out of there.
  • Just before she can, someone comes in the door.
  • THE GREAT AND POWERFUL TRIXIE... has the wrong room.
  • Sunset is not amused.
  • After she tells Trixie to stop talking in third person, neither is the show mare.
  • It's on!

THREAD 142Edit

  • TRIXIE TIME EDITION!
  • 42 is shocked how many visitors 32 has.
  • Lightning dust reaps the benefits of her position.
  • AJ and Chrysalis, after finishing up the basics for their idea for love as a currency, which much to Chrysalis's dismay entails leaving a sizeable portion of her treasury and every bit she owns in the Embassy with 32, realize that they have no way to propose this to other countries, as they both suck at politics.
  • Cadence, happily, does not, and begins training them.
  • ...It goes badly.
  • Actarius and JJ, going into the embassy, realize it's a madhouse, with rooms connecting randomly, and quickly get lost.

  • 42 is having none of 29's shit.
  • The would be assassin tries to convince Snake Eyes to help him get out of this, as he still has to buy his guys some time, but Snake Eyes is having none of it. In fact, he turns it on him, and gets ready to deliver everything to the princess.
  • One problem, it wasn't the princess he expected.
  • Worse than that, Luna accidentally messes up who the accused pony is, and takes Snake Eyes off to Celestia. The confusion is cleared up shortly after SE's gives some helpful advice, and Snake Eyes is tossed back in his cell, with the assassin back to being taken away.
  • Farmerling does not like it when you shoot at his crops.
  • Dash and Twilight do not question SA/Pinkie.
  • Honeyheart wakes up after seeing another scene of Jetset's training with Shining. When she wakes up, she's surprised to find she's not kidnapped, nor is the diamond dog, named Zanta a bad guy. The reason the glasses gave off a warning sign had more to do with the fact they're completely surrounded.
  • Uh oh.
  • Awkwardling discovers that the Pie Family mostly messes with their guests with the rock soup.
  • Cloudchaser makes Amethyst take the fall for the town hall thing.
  • MM, having had enough, finally insists to Twilight she get some guards down in Ponyville. Reluctantly, Twilight agrees.
  • She's quick to find out she would need to appoint a captain of the guard down there, as Pommel obviously is only the captain in Canterlot, but one problem... nobody wants the job.
  • Nobody.
  • Zecora and 42 reminisce about the poledancing.

  • Dr Hardlove, after a lot of bantering, releases Screwloose.
  • CC and Derpy set up an obstacle course for Dash, and Derpy does not understand offensive words.
  • Sweetie Doll wants to be a real filly.
  • DT meets up with her mom, Spoiled Rich, in Trottingham. Despite the obvious signs she's being used, she's just happy to see her mom again, and happy to see Silver Spoon again, who though concerned won't push her.
  • Trixie, having stumbled into the hospital room and thinking that Sunset is about to kidnap Sweet Note, engages Sunset in battle. Sunset, meanwhile, holds back and merely attempts to erase her memory.
  • Though she can't match her in magic, shockingly, Trixie's able to outtrick her. To the point where, after being battered particularly hard, she manages to fool Sunset into thinking she's escaped, then actually escape.
  • During the battle, Sunset slips more and more, until Trixie's escape has her outright livid. She recklessly chases her down the hospital hallway with Sweet Note pulled in tow, firing off mind-wiping spells in a frenzy as she goes to anyone who spots her.
  • Eventually, she thinks she's caught Trixie in a long stretch of hallway, but Sunset was tricked yet again! Trixie substituted in a passer-by, and Sunset mind-wiped then.
  • A back and forth ensues, with Trixie tricking and outsmarting Sunset to hit blow after blow, but never managing to keep the prodigy down. After she gets the advantage and a bad blow, Trixie thinks she's won, and awaits Sweet Note's praise. It was only here that she learns Sweet Note wasn't being kidnapped, and she wanted to leave. No time to ponder it, as out of the blue Sunset attacks, and catches her!
  • Finally, it looks like Susnet has her. Until, it turns out, there was someone who wanted to see Trixie get beat up.
  • A not-alive someone.
  • FLASH! When Sunset is blinded, Trixie unleashes everything she has, and unleashing a fireworks display without peer right into Sunset's chest.
  • Though the mare is alive, and still standing, Trixie won all the same. The guards are coming, brought by the display, and there's no time to fight. Mockingly, Trixie declares she was holding back the whole time, and when Sunset prepares to leave Trixie gives on final warning about ever doing what she did to her friends.
  • With no time left, Sunset Teleports with Sweet Note in tow and Trixie takes a bow.
  • The guards arrive soon after, but it doesn't quite go as planned.
  • "TRIXIE LULAMOON, YOU'RE UNDER ARREST!"
  • It takes Trixie about a second to realize everyone else got mindblasted.
  • "Well played, Sunset..."

  • The CMC can't find Sweetie Doll, but they can shake their booties.
  • Rarity admits she made a mistake and decides to start fixing things.
  • Twilight, reluctantly, decides to do an 'outreach program'.
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz give an update.
  • 29, MM and Zecora go down to see Trixie, and after meeting a racist guard, who is surprisingly racist to Zecora instead of 29, they ask her what she was thinking. Trixie claims she was framed by Sunset.
  • And... they believe her! Without a single doubt, the believe her, and swear they'll help her out. When the guard refuses to let her out, they say they're staying down there until she's free.
  • Trixie tries not to let them see her cry.
  • Vekir is sad to learn you don't become an alicorn by eating cake, and Siegfried gets his beak broken for saying Omlette Du Fromage.
  • Quicksilver is, reluctantly, alive.
  • Buttercup and Bubbles worry about if 7 will come back, and wonder what will happen if he doesn't, and if they'll go back to 'normal', something they very much don't want to do. Their fears are not realized, as with thunderous steps, he's back.

  • We suddenly cut to a grey haired mare sitting at her desk, one that's at the top of a skyscraper high rise, the sounds of battle nearing her and she keeps lamenting that it wasn't supposed to end like this so soon.
  • When the battle reaches her door, she declares she's not going down fighting, and whips out a magical cannon of some sort and nukes her door.
  • But, alas, it doesn't work, and a white unicorn marches in unharmed, and takes her out. In a flash, it's all over.
  • And then Sunset complains to the 'unicorn', obviously Chitania, about breaking everything, and Sweet Note apologizes and admits she didn't know the mare had a weapon that powerful.
  • Chitania grouses about not being able to kill any of the higher up bodyguards, but Sunset says they have to be kept alive, so operations look normal while they take over.
  • Due to her inability, Chitania has to give yet more changeling magic to Sunset, so she can brainwash the mare in her stead. She does, and Sunset proudly declares that Chitania is now the head of a crime family!
  • As Sunset gets to work, ordering the mare revealed to be named "Deep Pockets" to purchase several things, Chitania begins to wonder if that's true at all...
  • But she decides to deal with it later, for now, all that matters is becoming more powerful.
  • This is just the first step

  • A battle quickly begins, and Twilight is forced to ask "Why bear, tho?"
  • The two go back and forth, 77 using his wits and skills to match Harry's strength. When that runs out, he shapeshifts into a bear, and the two start wildly punching each other.
  • Eventually, the bearpunch runs out of steam, and the both collapse.
  • Right about then, Cheerliee arrives on the scene, and when told why Twilight was down here asks why she didn't ask Harry first.
  • 77 in turn asks "Who the fuck is Harry!?"
  • Sunset realizes they need more for their Empire, and sends Chitania out into the mountains to destroy a competitor in crime so they can take over his business and brainwash him to open up routes to get more stuff.

  • Finally, PD says that as a compromise, DT can go down there without SS, and if she feels like SS can handle it and not blab, then she can go get her.

  • Dash needs to know if Griffons are magical.
  • Twilight clears up the matter with Cheerilee, learning Harry was a volunteer guard and was just mad he got passed over for Captain. After some debate, Cheerilee points out he has no commanding or training experience, and Harry reluctantly accepts the second in command position. Twilight, completely gone by this point, simply throws up her hooves and goes OKAY! 77 continues to be baffled.
  • Now, 77 and Harry are working together, and it's kind of working out?
  • Luna, after some talking, gets Trixie out of prison.
  • They immediately go drink, and after fending off some ageism for Marey, get drunk. 29 was going to be the sober one, but misunderstood what a long island iced tea is.

  • It's all going poorly.
  • SA and Spitfire confuse 42.
  • 10 learns of Ponyville being attacked, and rides BBB over there.
  • In order to calm Ponyville, 77 announces his new captainship, to some understandable confusion. Revealing Harry is his SOC does not help matters.
  • But still they accept it, because what else are they going to do.
  • SA needs to get back up to the window. Mane-Iac helps... goes about as you expect.
  • But that's okay, because he's healed with the magic of Two Hugs!
  • AJ and Chrysalis really do not feel this, but Cadence tells them not to panic and just take it easy, they have plenty of time to prepare.
  • Right on cue, a massive peacock airship arrives, and it's carrying not only the maretonians, but Saddle Arabians as well!
  • Now's a good time to panic.
  • 77 and Harry trying to form a plan goes poorly, so Harry leaves.
  • Actarius and JJ, at last, are out of hope. Sure they're going to die, they resign themselves to starving, and are ready to let it happen.
  • Then 32 opens the door, and they bolt in joy. But before they can warn him, he shuts the door and goes through another!
  • Only for it to be fine and everything is normal.
  • The Embassy is completely normal.
  • Unsure if it's a dream, one thing they know for sure is nobody will believe them.
  • The CMC somehow flooded a toymakers-who sounds weirdly like Mario-shop, and are now heading towards a light fixture. This will end well.

  • After the royals go to a meeting room things get awkward.
  • When they bring up if the changelings are influencing A and co again, things get real awkward.
  • With screaming.
  • AJ lets it all out how sick she is of everything she does being questioned and how much everyone assumes it's a changeling whenever she does something they don't like, and tells them to cut it out.
  • The Maretonian and Arabian snaps back that this means it was her who pardoned Chitania, meaning they couldn't get at her and deliver justice for all she did to them, and then did it again after she stomped Canterlot
  • Nervously, AJ has to admit yes to this.
  • So they begin to wonder if she's gathering something. Namely, power. And if in this gathering, it was this lack of power on their end that prevented them from getting more out of the relationship between nations.
  • Bluntly, they ask if they had invaded Canterlot, would they be as forgiven as the changelings are now?
  • When AJ stumbles, trapped, Chrysalis cuts in and says they would "If they were sorry"
  • So they ask if she was sorry, and regrets what she did.
  • When Chrysalis stumbles, AJ tells her to be honest.
  • So she admits that she doesn't regret it, because if it hadn't she wouldn't be here, but acknowledges it was bad and she shouldn't have done it.
  • This confuses the royals.
  • BUT SUDDENLY! The back and forth bantering from the Equestrian Trio is interrupted, by none other than Rarity!
  • After one or two false entrances, she steps forwards, and lays out her proposal!
  • Which AJ immediately calls stupid.
  • The two maretonians, two saddle Arabians, one Empire princess and one changeling Queen get to sit back and watch, as bickering begins.
  • Sadly, Cadence gives Rarity heart when she bluntly says she's still the princess of bad ideas.
  • This is pretty good proof of that.

  • Fuzzy and the Buzz keep you updated.

  • The servants reach Celestia, still chanting, and she laments she's going to burn everything to the ground.
  • Sunset, while working on the stuff for Chitty, gets visited by Sweet Note, who begins to talk to her. Shockingly, Sweet Note considers Sunset a friend, which shocks her, and she wonders what Sunset's going to do when she rules the world, thinking that's what her and Chitty are doing. Sunset says she's not, but asks SN what she would do. SN just says she wants to keep having fun, she doesn't want anything else than what she has now, which Sunset doesn't believe.
  • The mare decides to wait for Chitania, while Sunset whispers to herself they're not taking over the world, but doing something much... bigger.
  • BUT NOW FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • AJ calls Rarity's proposal dumb, and stretches out explaining what it is while arguing with her.
  • When she finally says what it is, it turns out to be Rarity wants to open up their doings to a third party to ensure they are held accountable for their actions.
  • "They" meaning all of them. Chrysalis included.
  • Cue "HAH!"
  • The Maretonians and Saddle Arabians start taking bets on who is going to punch who.
  • Chrysalis goes off on her cackling, blowing off Rarity hard despite AJ's attempts to calm her down, and Rarity's insistence she needs it more than any of them.
  • The Maretonian Duchess agrees, and Chrysalis does not take that well.
  • Worse, the Saddle Arabian mare delegate goes off her rocker right there, no longer putting up with Chrysalis's intimidation. She's so angry and sure of herself, she commands the peacock airship to move to the window and arm it's mouth cannon.
  • She smugly tells Chrysalis her days are number, and charges the weapon, threatening Chrysalis when the Queen mocks her.
  • The threat falls flat when Chrysalis uses her magic, and rips the things head right off, chucking it straight up into the air.
  • Needless to say, now the four foreigners are horrified, and fear for their lives when Chrysalis advances on them.
  • So AJ hits her with cake.
  • ...Cake.
  • And then a foodfight happens between the two and Rarity, because of course it did.
  • Cadence explains this is their first day.
  • They descend into madness and accusations, flinging cake and insults everywhere.
  • Eventually the delegates get ready to leave, and AJ and Chrysalis can't think of anything to stop them. When Chrysalis asks Cadence for help, she finds her despondent and thinking herself a failure, and the princess can't get up.
  • It's right around here they realize they never even told the delegates what this was all abut, and to be frank they don't care anymore.
  • In desperation, Chrysalis says to Cadence to tell her what to do, whatever it takes, and she'll do it. She says she trusts her, and she'll do whatever it takes. When Cadence says she can't, do anything, Chrysalis replies she still believes in her, like Cadence did to her.
  • Cadence finds the fire back, and gets an idea.
  • She tells Chrysalis... to be herself.
  • Strangely, this doesn't backfire!
  • Chrysalis does as told, and says aloud how much a shame it is they don't want to know about it, but they'll find out soon enough.

  • Finally, after a long debate among themselves, they decide they'll consider it. All talk of war is gone, and instead, they're actually considering opening up trade with the changelings for this resource, seeing the pros it has to offer.
  • They leave, and everyone can finally relax, allowing Applejack to declare "It could have gone worse"
  • Finally, in the end, they know who to 'blame'
  • "Cadence? This is all yer' fault."
  • The princess has never been happier.
  • At least until Rarity mentions her proposal again.
  • "OH COME ON!"

THREAD 147Edit

  • OH SHIT IT'S A CUTIE MARK RUN EDITION!
  • Mane-Iac wants to go through the portal to find the holder of copyright, but the guard won't let her. So, she gets Poindexter to go with her.
  • Cue inexplicable, offscreen traveling of the world and Poindexter going crazy.
  • 10 and BBB cover the Fillyscout going bananas, and occasionally save a pony or two when they do it.
  • Lyra and Bonbon watch the scene unfold, and mostly banter.
  • Pinkie might be controlling SA.
  • The canties get guns, it goes as well as the changelings.
  • 42 demands to know about the CE sewer system
  • CC discovers life is a game. Mind blown.
  • Rarity insists on her proposal, and insists that it will include Chrysalis too thanks to an addendum about anyone who spends a lot of time with the royals, which make things get a little heated between them.
  • So, Caddy intervenes with hugs, and it diffuses the situation. AJ, meanwhile, is ready for a dang vacation.
  • After Rarity and Cadence leave the room, Chrysalis and AJ have a debate about the matter, specifically if Rarity is targeting her. Chrysalis insists she is, AJ denies and defends her friend up and down. Eventually, AJ admits the proposal is stupid, but Chrysalis shouldn't be harsh on Rarity, and instead of fighting to just give her a chance and talk to her, since the alternative would probably be a sparkly hammer to the face.
  • Chrysalis leaves, but seems to be considering AJ's words.
  • Afterwards, both have a moment of reflection about where they ended up.
  • The Castle Staff continue to be silly.
  • Pinkie's rides are questionable.
  • Berry gets no medical alcohol, does get bucked.
  • Luna visits the Ghostbuster's dreams, and they're kind of nuts.
  • Pommel finally begins his attack on the head mobsters, and after a battle he manages to capture their leader.
  • He also has to give bits for a swear jar, but that's unrelated.
  • The Fillyscout is wrecking Dash, 77 and Harry, and all looks hopeless.
  • Until, in a moment of desperation, Fluttershy calls out, and someone answers.
  • That someone? Dominatrixshy.
  • Yes, that clone from the early THREADs who's theme was dominatrix has returned, and she proceeds to kick the Scout's ass, while simultaneously making Dash and 77 feel very, very uncomfortable.
  • Even when the Scout goes Silver Mode, she still can't find victory after Domshy summons a Discord Clone and sacrifices it to stop her attacks. So, she goes to her ultimate form, GOLD MODE!
  • This only makes her excited!
  • Shining and Pinkie take a ride on the Pinkie Copter, a hugely unsafe contraption with no roof and blades exposed, up to the clouds. There, Pinkie points to a seemingly random spot and asks if Shining can see it. Surprisingly, he can.
  • They share a nice moment where Shining asks her if this is about 'that', and she says yes, hinting that the reason she wants to build a new PL is to leave something behind just in case, something Shining very much understands.
  • Berry decides to hide from the scout in the library.
  • Celestia tries to scare off the rampaging staff with Dollestia's head, it doesn't succeed.
  • Reluctantly she exits, and talks to them, confessing to a lot of awful things before she realizes they think she doesn't know their names. Which she does, she signs it on their paycheck every week. She just does it because it's fun... and because she accidentally called someone the name of a worker who had been dead for twenty years and felt terrible about it.
  • They liked the first explanation more.
  • Problem solved!
  • And they realize there's a changeling there, in their midst, and are having none of that.
  • 42 is relieved when she learns water comes from the snow.
  • Pokey Pierce going to children's parties is suddenly very suspect.
  • Big Mac ain't gonna fight anything, but he does have a beard.
  • Shining gets a monster hug from an excited Caddy, so strong he gets knocked out into the snow. He does not mind, even with broken ribs.
  • Neither does Pinkie, who wants in on the hugs.
  • Then comes the party.
  • 42 asks if any of the changelings did anything productive. Turned out, one had! And has been for months!
  • After Hearth's Warming, Chrysalis ordered one of the lings to make more of the memory balls that she gave to AJ, and he has been. He made dozens, over months.
  • They're hard to make.
  • Still, he gets a headpat, and everyone else gets punched. Now, one problem, they need to distribute and market it.
  • So, 42 goes to 18, and tells her she needs to get in contact with a marketing team, which she agrees to, but 42 leaves before she can learn what exactly is being marketed.
  • 18 goes to Pinkie, who also agrees before she knows what it is, and then 18 goes and joins the SA/Caddy party with them.
  • Cue Pinkie/SA/Caddy/18 party, it's fun.
  • Sunset says they finally have all they need to power up Chitania! One problem, Chitty doesn't have enough power. There's only one place that has a powerup strong enough to handle the new enhancements... the Empire.
  • They're going to get ready, and the Empire will never know what hit them.
  • Rarity, insisting she's doing the right thing, gets tackled by Twilight, who is despondent that all her old friends have left Canterlot.
  • Rarity agrees to help find the one let that might still be there, after they get ice cream, because they both feel terrible.

  • JJ and Acty's attempts to film the strange happenings of the Embassy fail.
  • Derpy herps, CC derps.
  • Two, visiting her grandparents, accidentally makes Velvet feel old.
  • Cup Cake and Carrot Cake are not swingers.
  • Blueblood cleans the floor so well you can eat off it. Long story short, he's now biting PJ while Arana and Haymaker look on.
  • It's easier than explaining what PJ meant when she said he could eat her off the floor.
  • Bon Bon takes Mares in Black seriously.
  • Celestia learns that the meeting is over, and goes off to get her letter.
  • Frieghter and a lunar guard watch 56 drown his sorrows in water, despondent he lost his action figure.
  • The CMC survive the flooding when the wall breaks, but when they hear a familiar country voice, they might wish they hadn't.
  • AJ chews out AB for being reckless, and AB doesn't make things any better when she shoots back with how neglectful AJ has been. Things get really terrible when AB mentions that she hasn't been to school in months.
  • AJ decides to show her what happens and prepares to spank her, but never quite makes it due to freezing up and going 404 when she sees a certain cutie mark.
  • The CMC run, leaving a still frozen AJ behind.
  • When she comes back to reality, AJ snaps and declares she's never going to let AB out of her sight again.
  • The hunt is on.

THREAD 148Edit

  • ARMED TO THE APPLE EDITION!
  • Applejack finally snaps, and starts chasing after Applebloom, running over a ton of others in the process.
  • Among those others, Celestia herself, who was out to demand her letter. After being run over, she decides to just kinda sit there, and lament burning everything to the ground.
  • The SA/PP/Cadence/18 party continues, until Shiny senses Celestia needs him and floats off. Yes, floats. No asking how.
  • They continue to party after that, and are soon joined by Maud! Also, licking happens. Don't ask.
  • The Embassy continues to harass JJ/Acty.
  • The changelings can't make money.
  • AB senses Aj is after her, and tells the other CMC to run after she herself does.
  • SB and SL do just that, in the other direction.
  • The fillyscout reaches her final form, GOLD MODE! The super, ultimate, greatest power who has ever been easily and quickly defeated.
  • Long story short, Domshy wrecks her, and turns her back to normal, leaving her with no memory of what just happened. Domshy understands she was just inexperienced, and says she'll wait to add her to the harem when she runs off.
  • But it's not over yet, because the moment Domshy let's her guard down, she's attacked! By who? None other than Discord himself!
  • The battle is on, with Domshy deflecting or absorbing all of Discord's attacks, strangely never using her magic to stop anything physically trying to hit her. He ends up pretty much reshaping the landscape with massive bombs and explosions, none of which land on her.
  • The hint why this happened comes when a hit if finally landed on her, but not from the chaos god, but rather Rainbow Dash!
  • She knocks her into the ground, where Harry is waiting, who uses a sledgehammer to rocket her right into the sky, where 77 is waiting to finish the combo!
  • With stabs. He stabs her.
  • Dash is not happy, since she's not sure that's not actually Fluttershy, and just wanted her incapacitated.
  • But no fear, she's not hurt, or even bleeding. In fact, she's so impressed, she offers to add 77 to her harem and show him such wonders. Interestingly, when he turns her down, she completely accepts this and just moves on.
  • The battle is about to reach it's peak, with Discord about to summon a final 'something' that will destroy her, but he's cut off by the real Fluttershy! Who, even more shockingly, actually lets Domshy go, and even thanks her for helping out!
  • Reluctantly, Domshy does so, even though she thinks it's a trick. And with that, the day is saved! Minus all the craters and destroyed fields, of course.
  • Also, 77 thinks he should arrest either Dash or FS for, even despite them saying they'll 'turn themselves in', and it's only when Dash reminds him Discord is right there that he thinks better of it.
  • The day is saved!... Or is it?
  • Back at Canterlot, Twilight and Rarity won't leave Moondancer alone. Shockingly, she actually doens't care about the party, which is what Twi thought was the problem, but more thinks Twilight brings chaos everywhere she goes, which is kinda proven when the rabid Aj runs by.
  • Scootaloo makes herself sad.
  • Lyra and Bon hug.
  • CC takes credit.
  • Luna finally grows bored of the foursome's dreams and wakes them up, cue massive hangover pains, which she takes great pleasure in. Fortunately, 29 cures them with mind magic. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on himself, and Luna needs her amusement somehow.
  • Afterwards, the foursome make it back to Ponyville, and... well, they react as expected to all the damage, and MM's attempts to find answers and learning that 77 is the new guard goes as well as could be.
  • As does 29's attempts to get cured by Zecora, who just wanted him to eat a spider.
  • While Celestia is preparing to burn everything to the ground, it's Shiny to the rescue! How? Chucking Two at her, and having her give Celestia a letter.
  • It works, and she gets back on her hooves and hugs are shared.
  • Afterwards, Two has to get back to her grandparents, lest Shiny incur the wrath of Granny time.
  • Shiny and Celly part ways, after a touching moment where they say they'll be there for each other.
  • Zanta, the Diamond Dog with Honeyheart, the nurse, finishes killing all the 'nasties' and burying them, leaving the nurse shellshocked. But sadly, this kind act seems to have a sinister undertone, as he insists that she take him to the Crystal Empire now, and his reasoning for why is unclear.
  • Applejack finally catches Applebloom! And... she just kinda hugs her really hard, and apologizes for letting her get this bad, and promises to never leave her alone again. Nothing is going to ever hurt her again, nothing.
  • Ab is not appreciative, but is unable to stop being dragged off.
  • Beneath the caverns of Mount Canter, a strange creature is carrying a seemingly sentient book. One which seems quite bitter about something.
  • The Staff continue to have wacky adventures.
  • 32, JJ and Acty get a strange visitor, an actual changeling! One who even more strangely needs actual embassy work done! He needs a license to sell his memory orbs in Canterlot for market testing.
  • Most shockingly of all, they actually get it done, and efficiently at that! 32 celebrates by cutting all all innuendo and just enjoying his win.
  • Applejack demands the guard drop everything to watch her sister.
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz keep you educated.
  • Time Turner's house got turned into a blue box that's bigger on the inside.
  • 42 makes herself sad.
  • Surprisingly, the memory orbs are a huge hit in Canterlot!
  • Pom goes over the after-mission briefing, and when he finds out some peacetrotters may have been fried, he realizes he doesn't know where they came from, or how to get in contact with whoever built them. He instead resolves to go see some old friends.
  • Shockingly, he's not the only one worried about the peacetrotters. There's also some concern from the machines themselves! Each one has been growing a personality, and the wounded one is afraid of 'dying'.
  • AJ abducts Twilight from her mission to befriend Moondancer in order to build her a giant mech to protect Applebloom. Big ideas, way too much firepower, unreasonable expectations and so very much Smacking ensues.
  • SP and 41's wrestling match got weird.
  • 88 and Lavan finally just ask if 32 was checked out, find out he was, and realizes he's in the crazy embassy. They're off!
  • 55 has something amazing to show braeburn! A clay that burns a bright red light that lasts a long time! What's he using this for? Fireworks? Selling it? Showing it off?
  • Nope, he uses some designs for paper lanterns Ingrid showed him and has accidentally created signal flares, and he wants to give them out to everyone in case they get lost in the desert, like an unfortunate pair of mother and daughter did before. Though the two survived, 55 was devastated he didn't find them sooner, before the exposure and heatstroke got bad, and now wants to give a way anyone lost can be found, day or night.
  • Braeburn, understanding, tries to nonetheless insist he can't save everyone. 55 actually agrees, and says he understands. Back in the fire when his old hive was stuck in trees, he tried to catch as many of his hivemates as he could. He couldn't catch all of them, but he caught some. But, more importantly, his Queen didn't try, and she didn't catch any of them.
  • Breaburn stops arguing, and when 55 goes off he asks if the changeling is out to save as many as he can. This actually confuses the dim ling, and he wonders if Brae was listening. The point of the story was he doesn't have to catch them all by himself anymore.
  • When he flies off, Braeburn understands, and agrees, and says all of Appleoosa will help, and be there to catch him too.
  • Sweetie Belle meets up with Babs Seed!
  • One of the guards waifus his peacetrotter. The peacetrotter insists PT's are not for waifu. Also, the guard has issues with the PT getting shined.
  • Flitterneeded to stretch.
  • Nightlight is feeling old.
  • Blueblood and PJ learn a lesson, to invite Haymaker next time.
  • FS wonders if her friends will be mad, Dash and Discord laugh it off.
  • Pinkie releases bubbles into the party, but much to her horror, the bubbles have point one one one percent alcohol in it.
  • Which means Caddy is getting smashed!
  • Chrysalis is seen again, out in the snow just beyond the Empire. She keeps trying to use her magic on the snow, to make it 'change', but somehow she can't manage it, even with all her power. Though her home is tempting, she resolves to stay, declaring she will have her kingdom, and goes back to trying.
  • Twilight finishes the mech! A marvel of weapons, abilities and comfort! The greatest of all her creations!
  • AJ thinks it's neat, which nearly breaks Twi.
  • What she doesn't think is neat is that Applebloom is gone! Where could she have gone?
  • In the mech, is the answer. AB is in the mech.
  • And she... is... ticked.
  • Run Applejack Run.

THREAD 149Edit

  • APPLE WAR EDITION!
  • Jetset and Spike continue training, with Spike surprisingly able to get the advantage during most of the fight. Even so, he won't pull the trigger on JS, simulation or no.
  • With this, Jetset finally points out what Celestia meant when she claims he hesitates too much. It's not that he hesitates before he pulls the trigger, he really doesn't, it's afterwards. He broods too much after he does what he needs to do. JS steals Charity, which makes Spike go into a rage. But he manages to calm down, and instead resolves to go and spend some more time with everyone else, wanting to get away from reacting so violently or brooding.
  • Begrudgingly, Jetset admits he passed the test, and Spike leaves the training room with some mutual respect, but Jetset says she still needs more training.
  • AB continues chasing AJ in the mech, and she's not stopping.
  • While she does so, the castle staff weep at what they've lost. Mostly time spent repairing the damage AB is causing.
  • The changeling mind orbs are a surprising hit, and now 42 has to figure out how to tax that stuff.
  • Celestia tries to get her letter again, gets run over again.
  • Vekir finally gets dragged to the castle by watchdog and Siegfried, only for them to realize that's exactly what she wanted and WD was being ridiculous not telling her.
  • To keep Two distracted, Velvet says to play... monopony. There is no help for them now.
  • Cadence is now ever so slightly drunk, and causing a lot of problems for the trio of Pinkie, 18 and Maud.
  • Among them, running off when they weren't looking and vanishing.
  • Cue panicking.
  • 12 is trying to get the toy back to 56, much to SLs chargin.
  • 77 comes home to a weirdly relaxed Cheerliee.
  • Shiny's Shiny sense is pulling him in two different directions, so he picks neither.
  • MM comes home to Ponyville, but something's happening. That something?
  • Filthy Rich is running for mayor.
  • Cue the rage.
  • The guards are having odd times with their peacetrotters
  • Cloudchaser thinks flying through rain is swimming... somehow.
  • Rarity fails to convince Moondancer to be her friend.
  • A shadowy someone gives LD pictures and notes of the recent events with Rainbow Dash and the chaos filly, and Lightning Dust thinks it might just be exactly what she needs to take her down.
  • The book is finally delivered to it's master, a skeleton! One who was defeated by Starswirl a millennia ago, and now seeks revenge with his old master, the creature inside the book, the Witch!
  • The book says no.

  • The Canties are just as confused as anyone.
  • AB is surprisingly completely unharmed by the attack, if anything she's downright pleasant. She's not even rattled.

  • DT is on the ropes against AB, which isn't helped when her mother forces her to do poses while fighting, but she does it anyway to make her proud.
  • When her renewed efforts manage to none of that to the non-lethal mech, because Twilight would rather punch her own face off than give AJ as she was a mech with lethal weapons.

  • In Fillydelphia, Spoiled Rich watches whatever she called fly off into the sky while blowing off Silver Spoon's concerns.
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz keep you updated.

Both of them, being from bad parts of different towns, got to see their towns transformed seemingly overnight by the sudden change to the crime families they served, and thought they would die under.
  • They talk about how the necessity to advance changed things, and how EVO is spreading everywhere.
  • But, they also realize that things are changing, and you can either go with it or get left behind, so get back to work.

Thread 151 Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP, ROYAL SISTER RUMBLE EDITION!

  • Celestia wonders what happened, but when Shining finds her she isn't very bothered. She deduced it wasn't an invasion due to nobody being hurt, so after playing around the two decide to head out at a leisurely pace.
  • The guards know better than to fight the robot.
  • Twinklejinx and the book manage to avoid detection by 32, for a little bit. But when Actarius holds a changeling learning class, where four other changelings sit in a circle and he teaches them to read, with 32 helping after some reluctant acceptance by the lings, TJ is forced to hide in 32's closet.
  • There, he comes across a 'disguise', which consists of a big wide brimmed purple hat, rainboots, a bunch of scarves, and ski goggles, all the stuff that was left over from when the Embassy was a clothing shop that 32 couldn't get rid of.
  • One of the lings, 47, finds him, but when said ling asks why 32 has a skeleton in his closet, he's blown off.
  • Afterwords, TJ is forced out and into the class in a case of mistaken identity. After the real 47 comes back, he's forced to jump out the window in an attempt to flee. He gets away, leaving an oddly nonchalant Actarius and JJ, and a very chalant and freaked out 32 behind.
  • Outside, he discovers how things have changed, and promptly freaks out before thinking of a way to use it for world domination. In one such idea, he realized he needed a different name than Twinklejinx, and he gets offered suggestions from none other than Rekulk, the morlock! After which he promptly flees... again.
  • FS and Dash fail to make it home due to something standing in their way. That something? Fluttershy's brother Zephyr.

  • Mayor Mare calls 29 into his office, reminds him of that time she made a deal with Chrysalis to save him from getting his head blown off, and then reveals... something.
  • OOCO Two is very good at diplomatic meals.
  • OOCO DT has a woodchuck, and after much debating and betting with a host of others, finds that a woodchuck can chuck 499 wood, Why? Because it's Pinkie's woodchuck. This all makes sense.
  • Silver Spoon is enjoying Spoiled Rich and PD losing their minds.
  • AJ finds she likes her new armor, which augments all her abilities. DT dislikes it, since it was supposed to be for her.
  • It makes her stronger, faster and all around more powerful, with two little catches. One, it's near impossible to control, resulting in her hitting the wall over and over, and Two, It was designed for DT, including when she would grow up, which means it's made to go as big as she can possibly go. Which is why it's a little saddening to DT when AJ says it's really tight in the rear.
  • Even without the armor, which AJ refuses to return, DT still charges the mech with TBDRLIATU.
  • AJ is having none of that, catching her in mid air and carrying her off away from the battle. There, after trying to reach her by telling her of how dangerous it all is, and getting nothing but threatened for her trouble, AJ has had enough, and makes a choice.
  • The choice to rip off it's jumpjets, and then hurl TBDRLIATU over the distance, respectively.
  • This utterly breaks DT, who is now convinced she's letting her mother down, and despite how much it hurt to do, AJ doesn't apologize for it as she walks away.
  • Lightning Dust finally meets the battle, and is confused nothing is happening. Likewise, Pommel who is also there does not seem to have any idea, and is unwilling to attack the docile mech. So they sit around and chat.
  • Filthy Rich reveals his real reason for the mayoral race, bringing his family back together!
  • Daw finds DT in a despondent state after watching the rocket launcher get tossed, and when she hears DT apologize to her mother she decides she's had enough of that, and goes down and tells DT to get on her back. After a pep talk, she agrees.
  • On the flight, Daw tells DT it's okay if she wants to cry, no matter how much she denies it and insists only children cry. Daw points out that her own father figure, one of the strongest shes' known, cried too, for the same reason she did when he died. Afterwards, DT admits she's afraid of letting her mother down, who was the only one who actually let her do all this stuff without referring to her as a kid.
  • Daw understands, and when TBDRLIATU flies back into her hooves, after firing off in a way even Daw can't figure out, they turn around and get right back towards the battle.
  • Gambling and Quicksilver, who TBDRLIATU had been watching this whole time after he landed in front of them, get blasted.
  • Scootaloo and a changeling have a chat.
  • 10 is so excited she gets to cover the mayoral race, because nothing is happening in Canterlot... right?
  • Pinkie, while running around and slapping ponies to find where Cadence is, makes a terrible mistake, and slaps Jokey Chan.

  • Luna's teaching technique needs work, but don't tell her that.
  • A Peacetrotter wishes for a perp to reconsider the cookies. He does not.
  • When a Cantie says aloud he 'wants' a princess like AJ, Spike does not take kindly to it.
  • He takes even less kindly to it that said cantie doesn't recognize him, but knows Sweetie Belle right away.
  • Though Spike wants to help AJ, when SB runs off talking about living dolls and he hears Babs scream, he decides it's worth looking into.
  • AJ tackles Applebloom, and initially freaks out that she hurt her, not so much when the battle resumes.
  • Shiny and Celly are bantering when they almost make it to the fight, with Celly declaring she will drop him in a heartbeat if he keeps sassing her.
  • That becomes way less funny when he falls through Canterlot, through a hole in the floor AJ made, and she freaks out before catching him just in time.
  • After that, she.. needs a minute.
  • Cadence worries about it too.
  • Rarity, out of options, says that if Moondancer lets her do a makeover, she'll leave. Reluctantly, she agrees.
  • 42 is noticing something odd in the Empire...
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz keep you updated.
  • The Changelings begin to wonder if they can just leave.
  • Velvet accidentally makes Two cry.
  • The battle between AJ and AB heats up, with AB pulling out all the stops and being completely invulnerable, and AJ trying to figure out how to use her armor. Just when AB starts to get the advantage, she's suddenly blasted by a giant missile, and nearly knocked down. Seeing DT riding on Daw and getting back into the fray, AJ is ticked.
  • Worried, Daw admits that she hopes DT has a plan, and said filly does. That is, just stay ahead of her, since she needs to charge every jump. Then she'll blow her up. It's not a complicated plan.
  • But more importantly, this is bad. Why? Because it has made AB a very, very, very unhappy filly. Seeing AJ charge off again, she feels like she's being ignored, again. That's not going to stand.
  • Enraged, she hits the biggest, most dangerous looking button she can find, and lets it all out.
  • ~Berserk mode activated~

  • She tries to play it off later, to mixed results.
  • The night guard sleep through all of this
  • The Canties are unfazed.
  • The changelings fill up the battery,p but there's an issue. Mostly, that now that the batteries are fully, they're empty. So, they have to wait until Shining comes back or starve. There's a flaw.
  • Still, after filling them up, they find another flaw. That they don't know where 42 wanted them put, and now they're in a room all alone with a bunch of blinking lights. The temptation, it is strong.
  • It's broken because short attention spans.
  • Cloud Chaser may or may not be running for mayor.
  • Spoiled Rich is not calling back DT, even with the battle going like it is, because she refuses to accept that DT will fail. Instead, she dreams of everyone knowing she made her little girl a star.
  • 77's recruiting did not go great.
  • Elsewhere, the current heads of the new "EVO" corporation, IE the mostly ponies but various species of crimelords that Sunset brainwashed and took over, discuss their new expansions, how to deal with Pennydrop using subterfuge, and how they're reconstructing cities like Baltimare.
  • But one of them has an issue, a crime lord who hasn't quite given in to the brainwashing yet, who calls out the others for letting themselves be controlled like this and asks their current 'head', Scarlet Cherry, how she feels to have her every thought chosen for her. Her response?
  • "I feel safe."
  • Blueblood successfully stopped PJ from entering the fight by sitting on her. She's about to turn blue.
  • The Canties muse on abusive relationships.
  • Pinkie's fight with Jokey Chan ends, he just didn't want any trouble.

  • Luna wants Zecora and Trixie to stop talking.
  • JJ and Acty drive 32 up a wall.
  • Potsticker arrives and tries to ask what happened to the new guy, 56, but all she gets is talk of a calendar.
  • 56, looking for his toy, is joined by Arana in his search, to little avail. But then an unexpected guest stumbles across them, Screwloose, who takes one look at Arana and is utterly terrified. She's completely frozen, barely able to stand, but still somehow manages to convince 56 to come over to her and protect him, with her plot of course. After that, she slinks away in horror, much to the hybrids confusion.
  • The Hive Gazette is rather quick.
  • 10 is not having the best time when she learns what she missed.

  • As is Spike's attempts to fire back, as a one in a million shot ends with him eating a grenade, literally, before being knocked for a loop while an unbothered Babs and Sweetie chase after the doll, and Spike regrets his choices.
  • Fluttershy has had enough of Zephyr's shit, and Discord is scared.
  • Dash is fine.
  • The changelings need buckets. The reason is dumb.
  • FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • With the robot in Berserker mode, it unleashes a new ability! It can fly!
  • Things go downhill from there.
  • Soon, AJ is pinned down against the wall, and a barrage is about to take her out of the fight, only to be saved by a scatterbomb from Diamond Tiara!
  • Instead of being appreciative, the princess continues to try to get DT out of the fight, with the filly having to shoot her.
  • The save is eventually paid back when AJ takes a direct hit meant for DT, and knocks her off Daw's back when she's pushed forwards. Even though AJ immediately tries to save her, it's pointless as DT saves herself.
  • On the ground, AJ tries again to disarm her before being rebuked, and after a tense moment where it looked like the rocket did some permanent damage, the mare asks her what it will take for her to get out of the fight.
  • She offers to do anything, up to and including a public meeting where she admits DT is better than her, if she'll quit, but DT refuses.
  • Instead, she bitterly calls out Applejack for letting her get this far, believing in her, and then trying to take it all away. She reveals she used to be proud because the princess believed in her, and after being ignored it truly hurt.
  • So, instead, she found others including her own mother who appreciate her, and she's going to keep fighting for them. With that, she get back into the battle.
  • After a moment of reflection, AJ joins her, vowing to fix this.
  • Back at the fight, the targeting system won't leave Daw alone, seeing her as the 'biggest threat' due to currently being the only one active.
  • DT gets back into the brawl, just in time to save her, but ultimately can't find a way to actually take AB down, and her and AJ nearly get crushed for their troubles.
  • AJ stops her, once again calling her out, but things are different this time. Instead of calling her out for fighting at all, she's calling her out for relying on just her technology, not her head. She makes DT remember back how this all started, when she was just a filly who wanted to protect her town, and it wasn't all about the best tech or the biggest boom. Slowly, it begins to reach the filly.
  • Finally, AJ challenges her, since it can't be destoryed by normal means, she has to use her head to actually innovate and figure out a way to keep it from moving.
  • She does.
  • After a double attack that leaves AJ's armor in tatters, DT pulls off a dangerous maneuver, much to AJ's ire as the filly had promised to let her handle the dangerous stuff, that ends with the robot beneath the ground, and unable to retaliate lest it fall through Canterlot onto the mountainside.
  • This does not stop Applebloom, who gets out of the mech, much to both DT and Daw's surprise as they did not know it was her in there, and starts beating AJ with a lead pipe. Said princess lets her to get it all out of her system.
  • That isn't nearly the worst that the filly hurts her with, as she starts screaming about everything AJ did wrong, and saying she hates her big sister.
  • When she's tired out enough she can't fight off a hug, AJ truly and sincerely apologizes, and says nothing she can do will hurt worse than not being there when she got her cutie mark, and their parents would be proud.
  • After a tense moment, AB breaks away, but AJ tells the others not to chase her, realizing the filly needs her space for a bit, and the filly leaves.
  • It's finally over.
  • Cue Twilight showing up, musing about how it's not as bad as the last sister fight with princesses.
  • AJ gives the armor back to DT, by ripping it off and giving her the shredded remains. The filly isn't too bothered, and her and Daw go off to get milk shakes, finally friends.
  • Twilight muses about how hard it will be to get the mech out, just in time for it to fall through the ground and hit just right to explode into a billion pieces. Twi calls that one divine intervention. Jokingly, Twi asks AJ never to ask her to build a robot again, and AJ agrees.
  • After all, she has a lot of work to do.
  • Lots to fix, after all.
  • Back in the Empire, something is happening. The drunk princess finds herself being slowly surrounded by darkness, and something influencing her mind.
  • The answer comes when she's finally frozen in place, and notices the green eyes that have been following her.
  • Queen Chrysalis steps forth, and smiles with wicked intent.
  • ..."HI CHRYSSSYYYYYY!"

  • Thankfully, AJ ties her up before she can run off and hurt herself.
  • What MM whispered to 29 is revealed! It seems that the deal she made with Chrysalis so long ago was... she would help 29 get elected as mayor next re-election. He's reluctant, but agrees.
  • When they tell Trixie and Zecora, they don't respond as intended. Instead of joining him, the pair decide that if MM isn't running again, than the seat is up for grabs! Both of them join in, and the race is on!

  • And also picking up Dash's dry cleaning, because that's important.
  • Applejack locks herself out of her room, and hasn't even been in there since before the vacation. Thankfully, she didn't leave Winona in there.
  • She did have a gold fish, though...
  • With no other options, she starts trying to burn through the wall, but doesn't make it very far. Because during it, the roof opens up, and Celestia arrives. She is not happy.
  • After learning what transpired, Celestia gives an absolutely blunt and brutal verbal beatdown to Applejack and Twilight, and even rebukes Rarity into silence when she tries to intervene. Only when she's finished does she admit she's not going to punish them, for no other reason than if she has to, they don't deserve to be princesses. After that, she takes off.
  • Left behind, Shining tries to defend her and say Celestia is just a little frazzled he almost fell to his death.
  • That does not help.
  • A little on edge, Applejack immediately tries to get back into her room, but pushes too far and her magic wipes out her entire room, and then some.

  • Twilight needs drinks, but SHiny will only give hugs.
  • Rarity has an awesome room because of unpaid spiderling labor.
  • When bantering, Maud suddenly acts very strange and chucks 18 out the room following a dialog tangent that makes no sense. 18 responds in kind, with lasers.
  • The battle between Babs and the Doll reaches it's peak, literally, when they and Sweetie Bell climb to the top of a roof!
  • And then Babs messes up and falls down. She's probably okay.
  • But SB is cornered, and the doll starts threatening her. Who will save her?
  • Spike to the rescue on his big wheel!
  • Which immediately falls, but nevermind, because the battle is on! With him distracted for a second, the doll strikes with a flurry of punches!
  • Which do nothing. Because she's a doll. A doll-doll, not a thing that looks like a doll.
  • This suddenly feels unfair to Spike.
  • DT offers to upgrade Daws' sword.
  • Fancy and Fleur answer a call to the elite to gather, and it seems Lightning Dust has something she wants to share.

  • When said queen says that anyone could take advantage of her, Cadence confidently shoots back she's not worried now, because Chrysalis would protect her.
  • When the changeling points out her intrinsic nature, Cadence admits She used to be afraid of her, because she thought her a monster, but she's not afraid of monsters anymore.
  • When the princess reaches out, the Queen grabs her hoof painfully, and admits that a part of her would rather not do this. But she needs power, and she's going to take it.
  • Or she would, if sudden green flames didn't appear. When she demands an answer, she's shocked to see 42 at the other end of the hallway, and said punchbug says in no uncertain terms that she knew there was a possibility someday she would have to fight her, someday she would have to be the one to stop her, and she was ready for it.
  • She is prepared, and she gives one final ultimatum.

  • She'll probably figure out Shining is in Canterlot...
  • Derpy is not a political mare.
  • Nightlight has good advice.
  • Why does Winona have a sword? Who knows!
  • 77 deals with sudden bears
  • Honeyheart gets another flashback to how Jetset made his shades, and his infiltration missions. The sight of him not giving up emboldens her, to the point where she's ready to finally stand up to Zanta. When she realizes her bag of bits is gone, she does far more than that, and punches him in the face.
  • It's on!
  • Spoiled Rich and Silver Spoon leave for Ponyville.
  • Zecora, Filthy, MM and Trixie all lay out their platforms and get varied results.

  • Nightlight and Velvet feel old.
  • The fight between Maud, Pinkie and 18 escalates.
  • A certain upset changeling knocks on Celestia's door, and she is ready to destroy them, until she realizes it's Shiny. That complicates things.

  • Luna and Spike get milkshakes
  • Twilight deduces Two is with Celly, tells SA to hold back.
  • Dash found some money on the ground and celebrates with FS, but the bit got stretched.
  • BUT FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Chitania is revealed, and is curious as to how 42 knew it was her, but the punchbug isn't feeling very talkative.
  • 42 threatens her to release Cadence, but after a seemingly failed attempt to get the princess free instead tries to bargain with the mocking titan, noticing right away that she's not draining or kidnapping her, so Chitania must be after something else. 42 promises to help her get it, if she lets Cadence free.
  • Chitania says there is something she can do... get Cadence to a hospital. With that, she punches.
  • And misses, as it turns out that failed attempt wasn't failed at all, and 42 had switched places with Cadence in the attack, having just wanted to get info from Chitania. With her plan foiled, she takes Chitania out of the city with her fireflight, much to the shock of the Queen. Out in the snow she tries to battle her, but quickly comes to the conclusion she couldn't even hurt her if she tried.
  • Left with no other choice, she briefly distracts the Titan and zips to the castle and back, returning with a bunch of Love-Harnesses, all of them full to the brim.
  • Knowing full well she likely won't survive this, she accepts that, and flicks the switch.
  • With the love in her, she goes into burnout form, and can finally stand on equal terms with the Queen, who revels in the challenge. A straight up brawl ensues, with the two eschewing magic or fancy tricks or banter to instead engage in a raw, silent battle.
  • With one final, devastating attack, 42 lands an orbital strike, and it seems she's won. But, of course, Chitania can't be kept down, and she manages to get back up out of the crater just as 42 burns out and falls. After admitting she had fun, Chitty almost heals her.
  • But it was all a trap! It turns out that massive attack was just to lace a spell in her body, preventing the Titan from teleporting. With the signal lit, the CE guard unleash hell, firing off missiles that 42 claims will completely burn away, if not Chitania then the air she breaths, and suffocate her in fire. Either she'll be boiled from the inside, she'll burn from the heat, or she'll suffocate. Regardless, Chitania has no escape, and neither does 42. In her last moments, 42 asks why she never went Titan mode.
  • Chitania reveals why when she pulls vials out of hooves, and suddenly is able to stop all of the missiles in the sky with magic. She didn't need it.
  • Their attack a failure, Chitania calls to the city in challenge, and they answer the call. Even as she's fading, 42 is proud they kept fighting.
  • Their attacks don't work, so it's down to only one left to meet the Titan in the snow, Cadence.
  • She comes alone, as it turns out someone has run a sword through the portal, and now there's nobody left to defend the Empire but herself. She sees that 42 is still alive, and resolves to save her in time.
  • Against the Titan, Cadence stands alone.

  • BUT FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • With her deception revealed and Sunset now aware she's out of power, Chrysalis is forced to go on the defensive against Sunset. Pushed to her limit, she relies entirely on her previously thought useless changeling powers, which prove effective.
  • Strangely, during the battle Sunset grows intense, declaring that this is the one chance she has to stop Chrysalis.
  • She taps into her power fully, and the influx of magic gives her a white, shining look, with two streams of magic reminiscent of wings on her back.
  • Meanwhile, inside the castle, the fight between Maud, and Pinkie against 18 intensifies, and she is badly beaten. 18 uses her mind control, but though Maud turns on Pinkie as commanded, that weird sensation forces her to keep beating 18 along with her.
  • Outside, the still sane guards watch Cadence uselessly try to reach 42 and defeat Chitania, to no avail. Rapidly, they begin to lose hope for her winning.
  • Back with Sunset and Chrysalis, Sunset has her on the rope, savagely beating the life out of Chrysalis, all while said queen continues to let out her trademark "HAH!' and laugh her off. When she finally has enough and tries to finish her off with a shining spear, Chrysalis reveals her last trick.
  • As she said before, she is never without power, and that power comes from the very walls all around them. She absorbs it from the traps she laid to protect the orb, and regains her strength.
  • The battle turns into one of illusion, with Sunset trapped in an ever expanding room, until after a time she figures out how to break it.
  • She forces Chrysalis to absorb the last of the magic, and challenges her to a final charge. Both run, but vanish att he last moment.
  • Chrysalis thinks she's outsmarted Sunset, but it turns out Sunny was counting on this, and used this opportunity to grab the orb, now free of any traps.
  • Except one, as it turns out. A bear trap.
  • Locked in place, Sunset holds on as Chrysalis attacks her shield, and taunts her. When Sunset lets it slip that it'll be worth it just to watch Shining come home to a beaten wife, Chrysalis stops, now realizing that Cadence was in danger, something she had been unaware of up to this point.
  • Sunset, seeing this, taunts her, and when a strange sensation passes over both of them, she says Chrysalis must choose. Cadence, or her new Kingdom.
  • Chrysalis makes her choice.
  • Outside, Cadence's futile efforts get little more than mocking from Chitania, finding herself totally unable to even get close to the rapidly dying 42, and it's starting to eat away at her.
  • After lamenting in despair for a while, something breaks in her, and for the first time Cadence uses magic laced with hate, not love.
  • Even still, Chitania is able to absorb it. After that, she mocks her and tells her to run and go get someone who can actually save the day, and feeling useless, Cadence considers it.
  • Instead of running, she calls the Crystal Heart, and through this connection calls to her people, and tells them to trust her. They do, and she pumps all of the CH energy into Chitania, who readily accepts it.
  • She grows bigger. and bigger. And Biiiiiiiiigggger, until a single one of her hooves is as large as the Empire. Down below, the Crystal Ponies start to waver, but another speech keeps them strong, and they keep pumping in the magic.
  • Finally, Chitnaia reaches up so high she's past the sky itself, and can see out into space. Out there, she sees something, something only she can see. She calls out "I can see you!' again and again.
  • When Cadence uses her love heart, Chitania sees something else too. She sees herself, in golden armor, regarded as a protector.
  • She dismisses the thought, and mocks Cadence for putting that in her head, who reveals that she doesn't know what Chitania sees, it only showed what was in her heart. Chitania dismisses it, and goes back to looking at 'them'.
  • She challenges 'them', stating she doesn't need anymore tricks or spells or magic, and instead is ready to fight them right now. She feels immortal, invincible, unbeatable.
  • Cold.
  • The Crystal Heart runs out of power and leaves her cold. She desperately tries to tell Cadence to give her more as she starts to burn out. Cadence delivered.
  • She gives her love, but the Titan's body is too busy trying to get rid of what it has. Her body overloads when Cadence shoots it in, and it burns. She fires, again and again, until even the princess herself is drained to near-unconciousness.
  • Eventually, the Titan burns out, and falls. She begins to wither away on the ground, while Cadence floats down.
  • Bitterly, Chitania asks if she's going to kill her. Cadence reveals she could, if she wanted to, but she doesn't have enough power.
  • She can't kill chitania and save 42.
  • She admits 42 will be angry with her, and it would be better if she just finished Chitty, but she can't let her go. 42 believed in her no matter, what, and it was time to return the favor.
  • She kisses her, and life comes back to the changeling.
  • With that, the last of her power is gone.
  • Cadence asks if anyone will save Chitania, as she's dying too, and it turns out Chitty has something for this. Though she doesn't know who gave it to her, the Titan has a love-harness that gives her true, honest love, and one that was directed to her alone. She's saved, and the fight is over.
  • That's when someone calls her horn, and tells the changeling to burn the princess.
  • Chitania admits she'd much rather just go, but the insistence is too much. She breaks another vial on her limbs, and shoots a fireball at the defenseless princess before using one last infusion, this one with a teleport spell.
  • But the fireball never hits, it's blocked.
  • By Chrysalis's body.
  • "I chose you."
  • The battle over, Cadence falls unconscious with a smile on her face.
  • Inside the castle, the battle isn't yet done. It turns out, Chitiania was more than just a distraction for Sunset. Two others were there.
  • In the middle of an all out war between guards, Flash and Fizzle race through the halls. On Flash's back, a strange miniature tower, which emits an odd signal. On Fizzle's, something else, and much bigger.
  • They're stopped by the sudden appearance of Spitfire, or rather re-appearance. Her wing is broken and her body battered, and it's revealed she had been trying to stop them to no avail. It's shown how when Flash uses his new augmented body and one shots her into a wall, breaking the other wing. She can't move anymore, and they run off.
  • After they've gone, 'help' finally rolls up, and Spitfire bitterly tells the new orb that he was of no use. Inside, Sombra is none too happy, even when she takes it back.
  • Flash and Fizzle make one last stop, checking on the changelings under orders from Chitania, before they make their escape and fly out free as birds. They won, all of them won.
  • Sunset got everything she wanted. The chaos, testing Chitania's magic, her orb...
  • And the mirror portal.
  • The Empire survived unscathed, but Sunset won the day.
  • Finally, back in Canterlot, Two emerges from Celestia's room, feeling better.
  • Just in time for a crystal guard to break in, and scream the Empire has been attacked.

  • When her disguise drops, it's revealed that in addition to the bruises and such, she's also badly burned on her sides.
  • Shining tries to get her to go to bed and recover, but she won't. She's too shellshocked at the choice she's made, reeling from choosing Cadence over the orb, and as a result after speaking with Shiny for a brief time she vanishes, and leaves him behind.

  • She points out she saved Cadence, just like everyone wanted, just like everyone insisted was the right thing to do, but she feels like she has lost everything because of it, and can't handle it.
  • She insists that's all she wants, to get back what she gave up to save Cadence, but it won't grant it to her.
  • After crying at the base of the tree for a bit, and reflecting at how unfair it was she had to make the choice, how unfair it was she didn't get the easy answers, and what this meant for her Hive's future, the Tree of Harmony does something, and she feels something happening.
  • Desperately, she opens her eyes and... She's a pony now.
  • Yep. She's a pony.
  • After getting over the shock she had become a pony and raging to the Tree and demanding it change her back, she finds out it actually turned her into an Alicorn.
  • Being Chrysalis, she instantly begins to think about all that she could do with it, what kind of new power structure she could create, how she could make a legitimate grab for a spot of land for herself, and how easy it would be to reign over a city that would die to have a real alicorn princess ruling them.
  • Then she thinks of the magic and the power and the freedom she would have, and the possibilities are endless.
  • She still decides she doesn't want it, and demands the Tree change her back.
  • She rages, spits and insults when it doesn't, and something very strange happens in response.

  • A long talk ensues, and by the end of it, all she has is this. That when the damage was done, and the dust settled, her library was still standing, and she knew Chitania knew she was working that day.
  • They both look at his backpack, which has a very special, signed autographed comic book in it and there is always hope.
  • AJ spots sombra and everyone is confused why he is here.
  • Lightning Dust thinks to herself she won, but now she doesn't know what to do.
  • Sombra is sad at first when Zecora says nothing can be done for him, but after 29 gives more information, there might be hope. But they're going to need a magic user.
  • The GREAT and POWERFUL Trixie is on the case! Sombra is doomed.
  • JJ and Acty end up outside the crazy house.
  • 88 and Lavan finally confront the Speyeder! And shockingly, it has words for them.
  • Specifically, to Lavan 'Your magic would like a word'.
  • Flutermom and Flutterdad have tea with their child, and they're quite nervous about recent developments. Specifically, if someone is going to get hurt.
  • Not to worry, she insists they'll all enjoy it... when they're in her harem. Domshy is sure of it.
  • Lyra is excited about Arana. Specifically, her legs.
  • CC tells Derpy to get explosives from a grenade with a butterknife. It shockingly doesn't go so bad.
  • Scootlaloo's plan of charging the wreckage on SB's back doesn't go so well. Thankfully, nurse Redheart is on the case! Even if she doesn't want to be.
  • Twilight is trying to loosen up when someone comes at her, screaming. Shockingly, it's not the guard, but the other doctor, the pediatrician, who is helping her take care of the injured CE crew. After a bit of screaming and babbling that something is wrong with Princess Cadence, she takes the notes from him, and sends him on his way.
  • She brushes off that he's probably insane at first, but then she sees the numbers.
  • Oh FU-
  • MM and 32 join the others
  • FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Chrysalis is terrified as the green fire keeps spreading. Changeling Horns start sprouting out of the ground and turning into trees, and when the ground opens up in four points it makes a Changeling Queen made of fire.
  • The hivemind has been accessed, seemingly.
  • In terror, she asks what the Queen wants, the Queen replies Chrysalis begged for them.
  • More and more sprout up, the inside of the cave turning into a strange place where horn-trees summon more spirits composed entirely of fire in creative ways, until dozens arrive. Chrysalis calls them liars, that he did no such thing and she only wanted her orb, but when they point out why she wanted her orb, she a relents and accepts that one way or another, she did get to talk to the Queens of the past.
  • So instead, she just asks if any of them know a way to build a kingdom.
  • After the initial and expected results of them offering ways to kill everyone and take over, a regal changeling that seems more powerful than the others arises, and details exactly what she needs to do to utterly eliminate every one of the royals, without being at fault, and ruling over the land legally, and at the ponies behest.
  • Annoyed, Chrysalis clarifies she wants to build-one-build-one, no killing or maiming or replacing at all. She just want ways to build castles or something.
  • None of them have an answer, all of them only know how to backstab and kill.
  • Chrysalis has a crisis when she realizes this, and while all of them demand she get back to killing she instead wonders if this is why the Tree changed her, if there is something inherently broken inside of her.
  • She brushes it off, going back to screaming at the Tree to change her back, because whatever lesson it was trying to teach her is useless.
  • Proudly, she points out that she doesn't need to learn that she's got good inside, because the only reasons she's in this situation at all is because she chose Cadence over the orb!
  • The response of "Well duh" from one of the Queens is not what she expected.
  • When she doesn't understand, they start laughing at her, hard, and it enrages her. They just laugh harder.
  • Finally, they answer that she doesn't know the truth.
  • "It was never your choice."
  • Once the others finally stop laughing at her, the Queens reveal a terrible secret.
  • Changeling Queens make sure their legacy, and what they wanted their heirs to act like, is ensured. They do this by putting mind control into their hearts.
  • When consumed, the heir no longer makes choices of her own, only what the Heart would allow.
  • they mock Chrysalis, pointing out of course she went after Cadence. If she killed Cadence and took her over, she would get all kingdoms, not just the one pitiful one the Orb could possibly give. Instead of building brick by brick, they would have everything all at once, the faster and easier option, and the Heart demanded it.
  • Chrysalis is blown, no longer sure if any choice she ever made was her own. Everything from being unsure about using the orb to make more Queens, which could one day challenge her, to spending time and being nice with Shining, to get in good with the royals, is now in question.
  • At her weakest, and her lowest, the regal Queen asks her what, exactly, shes' going to do now, for the Hive, and herself?
  • After much debate, Chrysalis tells her, she's going to go to the river, and stick her head in.
  • Then she's going to drink up, get full, and come back and put out every one of them.
  • They don't take too kindly to this.
  • She however, can't stop smiling.
  • Even when they start to close in.

  • Twilight finally stops screaming, and after checking a million times, she did read what she thought she read of the paper in front of her.
  • So, coincidentally, did Pinkie, over her shoulder.
  • It turns out the Speyeder is Lavans' magic made physical, and it wants to absorb the rest of Lavan and go back to the way things were, destroying all things. To prevent Lavan from destroying it, it constantly shifts the changelings in the way, and challenges Lavan, who can't fight it.
  • But the Canterlot Defense League can! Which is just Upper Crust... that's it
  • She gets absorbed shortly after, and 88 runs off with a plan.

  • An electric harp is not the same as an electric guitar, as Arana finds out

  • Chrysalis laughs at the Queens when they imply they could control her, and wonders if the Tree changed her to save her, and feels new confidence in her new form.
  • When the Queens threaten her, Chrysalis decides to see just how powerful she really is.
  • The answer is apparently not, because she can't cast any magic. At all.
  • Or fly for that matter.
  • She's an alicorn with nothing.
  • USELESS ASS TREE!
  • Following this, the Queens play cat and mouse, opening a labyrinth to chase her around and play with her. During the chase, she wonders if this wasn't a test, but an execution, or something else.
  • She decides to get back into action, and puts her new body to the test where she can, by running fast and breaking everything they put in her way. Shockingly, it works!
  • She manages to knock over one of the Horn Trees, and uses it to stay safe above as a sea of fire rolls in. For a little while, at least.
  • She banters with the regal one on her new log when the other Queen uses the others as a stepping stool, where Chrysalis taunts them for thinking her their puppet. They clarify she's not a puppet, but a vessel for ideals and it only takes one idiot steering wildly to make the whole thing go wrong.
  • After much talking, they decide not to let that happen again.
  • They're going to take her over.
  • Chrysalis screams and tries to fight back, but it's all useless and soon she's consumed.
  • But nothing happens, the fire just rolls right off her, and she's fine.
  • She laughs, and taunts, but the only thing they say is 'what have you done'?
  • She continues to try to make fun of them, but none bite, all act sad and morose.
  • When she's had enough, she demands to know why they won't speak to her, and they deliver this haunting message.
  • "You've doomed us all."

  • Scootaloo and the new changeling friend have some odd opinions about where things went wrong.
  • BUT FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • Chrysalis watches as all of the Queens react with devastation to her words, confused.
  • They reveal she wasn't just changed in body, her new form completely cut her off from the Hivemind and she's completely become a pony.
  • She realizes she's completely free, and the Queens think she chose this.
  • One of them declares 'good!' and she is joined in by a number who think it's better she turned into a pony
  • This doesn't go over well with some of the others, who attack the ones for her change, and a giant civil war ensues.
  • Chrysalis mostly focuses on her change, and the new freedom she has. She can go anywhere, do anything, and she's finally completely free, and al the benefits ponies get are now hers.
  • "Leave" one declares, and the war stopped.
  • Reluctantly, she starts to do just that.
  • She almost makes it out, but just as she reaches the edge of the cave, she stops, and concentrates on something.
  • Looking deep into her heart, she realizes 'it's the same.'
  • How she felt about the others didn't change.
  • Which means everything she felt as a changeling was real.
  • She turns around, and goes back to the Queens, who instantly try to take her over.
  • She laughs as they burn her skin away, revealing her true Changeling form underneath, and she uses her newfound power to hold them back.
  • They continually try to attack her, only to be rebuked by her power, and cast aside. She declares there's nothing wrong with them, they're not monsters. They have flaws, things that need fixed, but they can improve, they can get better, and most importantly, they can feel love.
  • She is QUEEN Chrysalis of the New Hive, and she'll decide what that means.
  • When she reduces the wave of fire to embers, she orders them to give her answers but they refuse.
  • Instead, they declare that if she wants this, she will have to prove it, and see them again. She accepts this challenge.
  • Just before it goes out, a blurry figure appears, and Chrysalis asks her why she didn't show up sooner.
  • The figure says she trusted her, whatever her choice was, and leaves.
  • Chrysalis watches her go, and answers back "...love you too."
  • Finally understanding why the Tree changed her, opened up the gate to the Hivemind, and what she really needed to know, she wryly comments to the Tree before collapsing in exhaustion, and needing a nap.
  • ~Chryrrrysalis~
  • She is not amused.
  • But cut away to Cadence, who is currently flying over Canterlot
  • She declares she will find Chrysalis, and she knows just the way
  • She has a spell she developed but was always too afraid to use, one that lets her see the love in others heart, really see it.
  • It feels like an insult to peer into ones heart like this, she feels, but she uses it anyway, and spots the love she would recognize anywhere, Shining's.
  • She flies over, and sure enough, it's Chrysalis, who's still half burned despite what she saw before and who's asleep at the base of the tree.
  • She gently wakes the Queen up by whispering ~Chryrrrysalis~, and after the changeling is standing,s he smacks the hell out of her.
  • Then she keeps smacking her harder and harder, until she's knocked over.
  • She chew her out for what she's done, and really lays into her for all her failures.
  • Then Chrysalis gives a 'witty' comment, and she deflates a bit.
  • The two share a long talk about things, including Chrysalis revealing she wants to build a kingdom. Cadence, strangely, is hurt at the idea Chrysalis will leave, but calms down when she reveals she was trying to do it out in the snow, and her power wasn't enough.
  • Though Chrysalis says she wants to do it on her own, and Cadence understands, she still gives her support if it's needed.
  • Finally, the two can relax.
  • For a minute, at least until they realize they have to get home, and Cadence it too weak to fly, so is Chrysalis.
  • Which means they're going to have to walk.
  • Through EVERFREE
  • "Snickerdoodles."
  • Back in Ponyville, Applejack has wandered off from the others in thought. She keeps noticing improvements, and other things in Ponyville that are just plain better, and starts to question just how much she missed.
  • Not just here, but in the whole world.
  • What didn't she see? What else is changeling without her knowing it?
  • She realized her time in the office had been with her planting seeds, but she had never come down to see those trees bear fruit.
  • She had never really made sure anything was working.
  • She trots up to the train station, and wonders if it's more than just Ponyville. What if it's like this the whole world over, she wonders?
  • What if she missed it all?"
  • "Hey, Applejack."
  • After screaming her head off, she notices a very... peculiar pair at the train station.
  • Naturally, she has some questions as to what happened to Chrysalis and Cadence.

  • With nothing standing between them, he attacks. And promptly gets his arm bitten off.
  • He keeps feeding the Speyeder more of himself, over and over, while telling him why he chooses not to raze havoc like the Speyeder wants. The truth is, he just sees that his kind never really wins, not for long, and he's learned enough that he doesn't want to get locked up again.

  • Her ponderings eventually lead her to wonder if he'd stick around if she changed like she did when she got the Apple, all the dark things that came with it and everything.

  • Zephyr, rightly terrified, tried to apologize, only to have FS lay into him for his irresponsible actions.
  • When he admits he really is sorry he hurt her, she accepts that he does care, and softens up on him, realizing it was just as much Discord pointing him as his own actions.
  • But Zephyr instead insists it was his idea, and that he honestly had fun with it. He realized he was wrong, but more importantly he hurt her, and that wasn’t acceptable.
  • He wants to be better, and FS believes in him.

  • Filthy Rich realizes half his political opponents are just gone.

  • Dash looks for Fluttershy. In bars… lots of bars.
  • The Ghostbusters, Sombra and 32 are having a good time talking, when Sombra accidentally asks why anyone would even hang around with 29, since he only remembered their past history.
  • One by one, Zecora, MM, Trixie and 32 all admit why, and point out they all are much happier now that they’ve been accepted as well, and accept Sombra in.
  • Finally feeling part of a group, Sombra feels welcomed, and they have a toast.
  • Afterwards, he laments they should hang out more, if only he could not be killed by giant glowing specters.

  • Spike is unsure about a lot of things.
  • JJ and Acty wonder what’s next.

  • Applejack and Spike finally have their big talk!
  • Applejack goes over her discoveries of their relationship, and comes to the simple conclusion it isn’t much of one.
  • Spike is of course blindsided and doesn’t know how to react, leading to some back and forth babbling, but eventually Aj cuts in and tells him of all the things she realized. Their lack of connections, lack of interactions, and most importantly lack of being there when things got bad and their own stagnation that not only do they know about, but might encourage.

  • Though they both admit that they wanted this, AJ realizes she wanted so much more after what she saw today.

  • She’s furious that he pushed her to this, and demands answers to why
  • His response shocks her. He claims that all of this was the end result of a massive stroke of chaos orchestrated by him. All of this, starting with a single fruit.
  • An apple
  • He points out how unlikely it was she ascended, how much came from a random thought, given to Celestia when she was at her most susceptible.
  • Fluttershy instantly denies his implications, but when he points out how much it changed, she starts to slip.
  • He kept going, on and on. Pointing out that a mistake from Twilight unleashed Chitania while she was chasing an old fairytale, quite unlike her! And the result was a host of chaos from her fallout!
  • How Blueblood suddenly got it in him to try to assassinate Applejack for the throne, which was already his for the taking!
  • Partyland, Cordyceps, all of it he claims credit for, and Fluttershy falls into despair.
  • She hits her worst when he claims his greatest achievement.
  • The murder of Sunset Shimmer.
  • He says even he marvels how much that did.
  • He claims to hold all the strings, all the power, he can do anything he wants, and Fluttershy is ready to collapse.
  • Finally, feeling defeated, unwilling to fight anymore, she doesn’t do anything when he grabs hold of her horn, and prepares to tug.
  • But just as all seems lost, she hears someone call out her name.
  • ”Rainbow Dash?”
  • She feels a yanks on her horn, and a sharp crack
  • It didn’t hurt anymore.

Thread 167Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP, ROMANCE AND CHAOS EDITION!

  • Time Turner asks pokey, Blues and Roseluck if the princesses are fixing it, and gets an unsatisfactory answer regarding musical taste.
  • That would be the end of it, but strangely, that same scenario seems to be repeating…
  • Shining has impeccable bubble related logic.
  • Guards VS living paperwork does not go well.
  • A Taltzworm can talk, which is cool.
  • Spitfire tries to get Pinkie to talk again, with mixed results.
  • AJ, stll reeling from Spike’s last words, openly challenges him on it. He gives some standard answers about how great she is, but it’s not enough, and when she can’t take anymore she tells him all about what she did during the Apple-Arc.
  • He’s shocked, but of course tries to say he would still thinks the same about her, but she cuts him off.
  • She outright says that after Rarity, she believes he thinks he’d never doubt her, but she no longer is sure if that’s the truth, or just what he thinks of himself. Finally, she asks him why ne never wanted anything more from their relationship.
  • He can’t find the answer, and when she points out that they weren’t there during the good times and the bad, only when things were alright, and they only found each other again when the chaos died down.
  • She says she knows why she needed this, it made her happy to know someone believed in her when the world was against her, but she doesn’t know what he needed.
  • He says he needed something to stay the same. With the world changing, and him not sure of who he was or his place in the world, he needed something to stay the same and be consistent, and she was.
  • They both admit they made mistakes, they both needed each other to be something, rather than a real relationship.
  • When she asks him one more time if he’s sure he’d stick with her if she changed, he admits he doesn’t know.
  • When they both admit they don’t know if they could love each other if they weren’t that, they have their answer.
  • It’s a hard choice, but eventually, they go their separate ways, and at last, Spike and AJ are broken up.
  • Back with the rest of the world, Vekir, Watchdog and Seigfried get affected by the chaos.
  • Two has many questions about the new baby.
  • With 29 and co, the light things start attacking, and they fight to fend them off. The Ghostbusters can hit them, but Sombra and 32 find their attacks don’t work.
  • Just when it seems they’ve foght them back, they realize they’re surrounded.
  • Spitfire asks 18 to help her with Pinkie, and things get silly.
  • JJ and Acty can’t find 88
  • DT doesn’t know what some things are.
  • Spike, still broken up, soldiers on to go see 42.
  • Couldchaser is normal again.
  • The CE crew are not worried about Two getting jealous
  • Luna finds there is a shield blocking her. Challenge accepted
  • Saddles Arabians are impressed with their peacock
  • Spike wants to be let in to 42 past the shield. DT wants to nuke it, but Spike has a better idea, knocking. His thing works way better.
  • WITH THE MAIN EVENT
  • Discord’s grip lets go o Fluttershy’s horn. Why?
  • Because Dash just punched the everloving chaos right out of him. She did this while slightly drunk too.
  • This act shakes him up so hard, Zephyr is brought back!
  • Rather than be shaken up by his out of nowhere assault, Discord seems enthralled, and laughs it off. But to their surprise, afterwards, his laughter stops, and he seems confused.
  • He confusedly asks where the others are.
  • Finally, with a moment to think to herself and take in the situation, Fluttershy notices the chaos storm and wonders how he even managed to do that.
  • She realizes she should have been able to stop it, and with it comes another realization
  • She snaps, not into anger but perfect calm, and tells him to make it stop.
  • He tries to deny her and fight her for a bit, but eventually he relents, and snaps his fingers.
  • Finally, everything goes back to normal, and she asks him how long he’s been holding it in.
  • His answer? “Too long.”
  • Thoroughly confuses, Zephyr would very much want to know what’s going on right now.
  • She tells them to go down to a quiet place, and she’ll reveal it all.
  • All around the world, they notice the chaos stopping, from short stories to LD realizing she did good and not knowing how to deal with that.
  • After she gets them down there, Fluttershy begins to explain what went wrong. She goes over how she became an alicorn, and how she had to start dealing with the chaotic nature of it.
  • Discord admits he partially changed her because of how little he wanted to outlive her.
  • She continues, pointing out how much problems the chaos caused because it was unpredictable. Dash insinuates she could have just bottled it up, but she say that’s the problem, it can’t be. When she tried to keep it inside, Partyland happened.
  • Finally, she corrects Discord on his earlier statement. It wasn’t his doing, it was all her.
  • She then reveals that Discord going off with Zephyr was another way for him to blow off steam, because he couldn’t bottle it up either.
  • When she brings up the events he claims to have orchestrated, Dash denies it, and Fluttershy agrees, that there was no way he would follow through on something that intricate, and not make a show of it.
  • Fluttershy realized that her powers should have nullified his, but his words and actions had caused her own chaos to be let out and clash with his, rather than the zero sum game it should have been.
  • Zephyr apologizes again for his hoof in that, and Dash agrees.
  • Fluttershy goes on to say another reason she was so affected was that she was worried they left her behind, and she couldn’t handle the thought.
  • Zephry reassures her, and promises to try to be better, and she still believes in him.
  • At long, loooong last, Discord admits everything that happened with Sunset Shimmer, and the accident that caused where she is now.
  • He even muses that his chaos infusion might be what caused her current state of mind, though he has no way of knowing that.
  • When he admits it was his chaos that made the rock strike her, Dash loses her shit.
  • She would lay into him if FS didn’t hold her back, but that doesn’t stop the screams and threats and hate.
  • Even when Zephyr points out she’s a terrorist, Dash has none of that, and lays into him just as hard, calling Discord out again for murdering her and ruining her life.
  • Discord insists it’s an accident, but it’s not enough, and one slipup means Dash’s punch goes through.
  • And hits Fluttershy, much to Dash’s horror.
  • When FS points out how easy it was hurt a friend even when you didn’t mean to, she backs off.
  • When Dash threatens him again after he admits he fled when Sunset ‘died’, Discord thinks that his chaos might be causing it’s own buildup in her, and it’s only going to get worse. Everyone touched by chaos has different effects, and none of them good.
  • With it all out on the table, FS says that he has to go tell Sunset. Not go beat her, capture her, or bring her to Applejack, but speak to her, and he has to help her.
  • Discord agrees to try.
  • When Dash feels pain, she suddenly notices that she knocked a scale out of Discord, and he says she can keep it.
  • With that, he’s gone.
  • Afterwards, Zephyr thanks his sister for the wakeup call, and gives her his Bodkin, the thing that keeps up his hair, in thanks. There seems to be a strange power about it…
  • He says he’s going to see his parents, and she affirms she believes in him when he leaves.
  • Dash prepares to leave as well, but FS stops her.
  • She thanks Dash for always being there when she needed her, for giving her hope and never abandoning, and she means so much to her that if she can do anything to help, she needs to.
  • Faced with this and all the weight of recent betrayals and reveals, Dash breaks down and cries, begging Fluttershy to help her.
  • She does this so long she falls asleep, waking up to FS holding her, and feeling better.
  • Both of them are going to face the future, and they’re not going to do it alone.

  • Potsticker meets 77 and 56, being normal for once, and they both share what they know about the incident.
  • They go through possible suspects, but the one that sticks out most to 77 is that a whole lot of coincidences happened after Sombra was sealed up by Sunset, and it's pointing a lot of things towards her being responsible.

  • Chrysalis, after learning what happened to 29, The GBs, and 32, does what she always does in situations like this, and tries to order back all changelings, ALL changelings, to the Hive, whether they like it or not. Obviously, some try to object, but she's having none of it.

  • Time Turner, Pokey, Roseluck and Blues are still trapped… somewhere. Somewhere chaotic.
  • An insult match happens between Rarity, Pinkie and 18, everyone feels terrible.
  • Applejack, at long last, gives her heartfelt speech.
  • When pressed by Chrysalis to explain why she shouldn’t just pull back the changelings, said Queen is remarkably open to listening.
  • Simply put, AJ says “They can’t do it again.”
  • When this proves unsatisfactory, Chrysalis nearly calls for the recall, only to be cut off when Applejack points out she would just be starting all over again, like they always do.
  • Every time they try to move forwards, and they keep trying, something happens and they just roll back.
  • And this, Applejack has finally realized, is why she failed and others succeeded. She messed up, they messed up, but unlike her, they kept trying, and they changed things. They never gave up.
  • She actually praises Twenty Nine and the others, saying that they kept going and they fixed stuff, and if indeed they are dead, they’ve left something important behind, and that’s what was worth the risk.
  • She details how their fighting back in the day kept them from moving forwards, and how it could stop them again.
  • Finally, she begs Chrysalis not to stop trying again, even for just a little bit. To keep going, and keep growing.
  • The Elements of Harmony join in, each one giving their own failure that they let hold them back, and telling her not to make the same mistake.
  • When Chrysalis asks what if they all should fall, they tell her as one, they’ll be there, all of them, because none of them are alone anymore.
  • It’s time to move forwards, and when Chrysalis asks where they should start, AJ has an idea.
  • Since 32 is gone, it all begins with naming a new ambassador, and she has just the idea. A certain white earth pony named Actarius.
  • Finally, Chrysalis joins in, and agrees to keep moving forwards, and take down Sunset and Chitania together.
  • Applejack, proudly, declares “Let’s bring those Knuckleheads home”
  • Back in Ponyville, Lyra and Bonbon learn not to mes with spiders.
  • We also saw how the changelings grabbed Actarius and ran in a flashback.
  • Back in the present, Chrysalis tries to argue against Actarius, but her arguments are eventually shot down, and she offers him the job, which he accepts.
  • …After pointing out the embassy is wrecked, of course.
  • Shiny is jealous he didn’t get to do the speech.
  • Dash and Fluttershy are still missing some pieces
  • The guards are glad Arana is gone.
  • Luna is insistent her students are not dead.
  • Chrysalis is mad that her embassy is gone until she realizes magic can fix it.
  • SA and Caddy asking Twilight if ‘vigerous bouncing’ is okay for the baby gets… mixed results.
  • Back with Sunset and Chitania, Sunny is still in shock that Chitania saved her life, and that she was there when she needed her.
  • Chitania picked this moment to walk in, and after a hasty brushing off, said megabug asks how the portal works, and what the plan with it is.
  • When Sunset points out she knows the plan, Chitania clairifes, the ‘real’ plan.
  • This worries the prodigy, and it only gets worse when Chitania points out she knows where the portal can go, and where Sunset came from.
  • Sunset doesn’t deny the accusation that she thought about it, but she points out she’s still here, and when that doesn’t suffice asks if Chitania trusts her.
  • Chitania points out everyone she’s ever trusted has turned on her, which gets no sympathy from Sunset, who says “Poor you.”
  • Chitania shoots back that isn’t true, all of them had their reasons, and understanding them is important. After laying out all their reasons, she says she understands why Sunset would betray her and leave.
  • Sunset gets hostile and asks her what she plans to do if that’s the case, attack her or fight her?
  • Chitania points out she could easily break or detain Sunset, and Sunny is ready to fight, but then she says she’d just let her go.
  • Recent near death stuff made Chitania realize Sunset, in a bad moment, could kill her, and since she’s immortal she’d rather a sure thing, she wasn’t going to force her and risk to be betrayed at a bad moment.
  • Sunset asks Chitania if she can trust the Queen. Said Queen says, she wants her around, and she wouldn’t have made it this far without her.
  • Most tellingly, she pokes Sunset’s chest, and tells the pony all this was worth it, even if she left right then.
  • Sunset, when pressed, says she can’t go back.
  • She then brushes it off, moving to humor, and becomes a thousand times more lighthearted. Strangely, so does Chitania.
  • Happy again, Sunset declares they’re going to do a lot of wonderful things together, and none of their foes will know what hit them.
  • Back with the Empire, AJ and Chrysalis almost get out of talking with delegates, but Cadence is having none of that shit
  • Chrysalis and Luna trying to be darkies does not go well.
  • HH wakes up to find Zanta messing with her shades, which she does not like, and that the DD brought them to a hotel room. The two chat as to why she’s like that, sickness from the meat, and then wonder what’s going to happen next while ‘baddies’ are slowly closing in.
  • Lightning Dust and Soarin’ have a confrontation, LD thinks it will be interesting.
  • With the CMC, Applebloom is being chased, Sweetie Belle returns and brushes off being abandoned, and everyone just kindly ignores the large battalion of guard headed their way.
  • Sweet Note should not be a nurse.
  • Pinke Pie is never getting her pink pony show… wink.
  • Fluttershy thinks oddly perverted things abut her friends and also Dash can interpretive dance in rainbows
  • Celestia suddenly realizes that it would be weird for a pony with Equestrian citizenship to be an ambassador for changelings, so Actarius decides to ‘immagrate.’
  • SA and Cadence insist on going out on a date with 18, despite the world almost ending every time they try.
  • Suddenly cut over to, of all places, the middle of a frozen wasteland, not the Empire.
  • A few threads ago, that pony that was ‘freed’ by 10 from Stalliongrad, Iron Hoof, and called for his ‘Commander’, with his intentions is revealed! The commander in question? Antlers, and he brought with him an airship, a mass of workers, and a ton of robots. The thing he called them for? Something super big in the middle of the frozen nothingness that the workers are digging out.
  • At first, it looks celebratory, until Antlers has doubts about Iron Hoof being who he says he is, and when the pony fails to answer a question he’s shocked to seeming death.
  • When Antlers turns his attack on another minion, it’s revealed that’s no minion at all! It’s Changeling 007!
  • The two back and fourth, revealing how much they know about each other and how little they do, and a battle ensues.
  • During the fight, Buttercup, who is now rocking two chainguns, and eventually Bubbles, the giant Timber Wolf, enter the fray and destroy the robot army Antlers sends against them.
  • However, when Antlers calls down a Metal Deer Rex, all seems hopeless for the two, so 7 “Calls the Storm.”
  • A giant storm rolls in, one that can’t be seen through but apparently has something inside that tears the Rex apart, and then leaves.
  • Desperate, Antlers tells his airship to fire down on the crater holding the thing they’re after, forcing Bubbles to carry off Buttercup and 7 to use his mindpowers to call something else.
  • The attack works in dislodging the massive block of ice, and Antlers cheerfully rides his airship into the sky, revealing that he, and all the other world leaders, got a letter from a friend, Pennydrop though he does not reveal her name, and he’s got a way to solve her ‘changeling problem.’
  • 7, sadly, cannot follow, as he’s too wounded from being so close to the blast, but when the other is gone, it’s revealed what he was doing. The Quarry Eel, along with the other predators, got the workers out in time before the blast hit.
  • When Buttercup asks what he’s going to do now, 7 lays his hoof on IronHoof, who is not dead and begins to stir, and says he needs to send a message.
  • Something big is coming
  • Back at the Empire, one by one, everyone has to go. They all reflect on their challenges they’ve faced, and how far they’ve yet to come. They all have work to do.
  • But they’re not doing it alone.
  • Finally, they all leave, but they have one more thing they need to do, together.
  • ”HAPPY CUTIE CENERAAA!”
  • it’s time to move forwards, and make a better world.
  • Yes, that includes Fleetfoot, who was not forgotten, and gets cake.
  • Everyone takes Dash so literal sometimes

  • Spike wants to test non-lethal stuff on Shiny, if he likes it or not.
  • Ends up shopping as punishment.

She tucks in Sunset, who warmly accepts it, and then when Chitty leaves Sunset can’t help herself and calls 13, who she tells about her current changes.
  • 13 is concerned about the danger, but Sunset isn’t. 13 wonders if she hurried for a particular ‘reason’ and Sunset just casually mentions it might be over before the holiday.
  • After wishing her luck, 13 cuts the connection, and Sunset falls asleep.
  • Or at least she tries to, before that portal suddenly explodes to life, and starts charging up with chaos power.
  • ”Oh fuck-“
  • And then it all exploded.

Thread 173 Edit

  • Applejack has a question!
  • But, unfortunately, it’s going to have to wait, because Applejack has a question! She wants to know why Equestria is so awful!
  • That is exactly what it sounds like.
  • Alterjack first appears!
  • Shortly after spotting this new, mostly accent-free, hat bereft, vest rocking, glasses sporting version of Applejack next to the real one, Celestia confirms the universe hates her.
  • A quick questioning reveals that this new Applejack was in her world, minding her own business, when a portal suddenly opened and sucked her in.
  • The last thing she remembers is waking up in the middle of nowhere, bruised and beat up, and not remembering anything in the middle.
  • Also, they find this Applejack is much more, bluntly put, intense than regular Applejack. Their timeline split off just when Applejack became a princess, but this one reacts much more harshly to events that transpired. She took the reigns away from Celestia, and she went full hog into her new position, and she is subsequently disgusted at how little progress was made in this universe.
  • Shockingly, this change seems to have occurred because she actually got the fence made.
  • For instance, she dealt with Blueblood swiftly and brutally before imprisoning him, and a host of other issues, such as imprisoning Spitfire for criminal negligence.
  • We learn that Twilight has mostly been relegated to her lab, and almost never comes out anymore, always producing a new invention for the bettering of Equestria.
  • Dash has been relegated to the Weather patrol, much to her anger, and she and Alterjack are not on the best terms.
  • She was never in a relationship with Spike and is horrified that Applejack-Prime was, in her world he’s still just chasing a non-ascended Rarity, who never became an alicorn because AltJack smacked the stupid out of Celly.
  • Rarity in that universe instead opened a dress shop in Canterlot, and Alterjack never sees her. When the current universe one pops in, Alterjack takes her to task for never accomplishing anything and wasting her wings, sending her running off crying.
  • When Fluttershy goes to investigate why her friend was crying, we learn she likewise never became an alicorn, and their relationship is mostly empty. Alterjack drills into her for not using her powers more often, and Fluttershy flees.
  • Pinkie Pie’s and her relationship is not yet expanded upon, only that Alterjack considers her a bright spot in her life, and she vetoed Partyland before it ever became a thing.
  • Celestia mostly just lets her do whatever.
  • Luna tried but mostly is forgotten.
  • She finds a lot of grievances with the current Equestria, such as the non-regulated giant robots, not mass marketing hoverboards, the entirety of the A-team and everything about it, how they chose the captain of the guard, not just firing most of the lazy guard, the hologram room, the lack of airships despite building them, Dash being a Wonderbolt Captain-or rather was a captain, the amount of Wonderbolts, the portals not being used everywhere instead of just the Empire, the guards not being armed with guns, Applejack not learning magic, no coffee, no base beneath Canterlot to hold it up, and so very many other things.
  • As they’re discussing the changes, Chrysalis bursts in, and Alterjack wastes no time for explanations and snaps into action, literally! She attacks Chrysalis, forcing her out of the city with a plant-ball and teleportation, and when she reaches Everfree she immediately uses an advanced and very powerful sealing spell that creates a new massive tree out of nothing.
  • Chrysalis breaks out, thinking Applejack had been replaced or mind controlled or something, and challenges her, after a taunt the battle is on.
  • It’s here we see that Alterjack relies almost entirely on magic, and it’s implied that the Chrysalis in her world had been ‘dealt with’, what she did to the changelings is never said, but implied to be horrible.
  • Alterjack finds herself shocked at how powerful this Chrysalis is, as she is far beyond her own, and Chrysalis agrees, pointing out she's well above what an Alicorn should be. AUJ says she’s taking the gloves off, and prepares to touch the apple necktie on her vest.
  • The battle is broken up before it can go off, thankfully, and the misunderstanding is cleared up.
  • Alterjack is not happy, and lays into her current universe self for letting the changelings stay in the ballroom, or wander around Equestria, and every answer she gets for every question makes her very mad
  • When she asks how she tried to integrate them, she gets verrrryyy mad.
  • She then learns about 10, and that the newspaper isn’t regulated.
  • When she learns they’re in the Empire, Alterjack loses her mind.
  • But she never gets a chance to go off, because something strange happens next.
  • Shining Armor walks in, worried from Twilight’s alarms about magic being thrown around, and she goes dead quiet.
  • While Shining gets caught up to speed, she speaks very little, just looking at him mostly before he announces he has to get back to calm Cadence down
  • Right before he leaves, she finally speaks to him, and says “Bye… Shining Armor. You uh… you look good. Look… good.”
  • He’s confused by that, but leaves. When questioned if he’s different with her, she explains he doesn’t rule the Empire, she annexed it when it was being mismanaged and took it away from Cadence and Shining Armor, even though both protested. Subjects or them weren’t happy, but they saw it her way, nobody got hurt and it’s doing better, and the Empire is a vassal state now.
  • When asked about the pair, she says Cadence doesn’t do a whole lot anymore, and she hasn’t seen her in forever.
  • After that, they ask about Shiny, and she goes quiet for a long time before brushing them off.
  • She tells them to be thankful things are different here in a sad tone, and that one thing was better here, before laying into them for more problems.
  • Afterwards, she learns Cadence is doing paperwork, but that most of it was done by an ‘Eighteen’. She thinks that’s a nickname, and neither Celestia or AJ will correct her.
  • She’s still suspicious of the changelings.
  • While in a bathroom break, she meets none other than our favorite changeling, AJ TWO! Jumping through the halls!
  • She gets a marchmalley, and Two is none the wiser before she bounces off again. Alterjack is, understandably, horrified when she learns from the bug that Shining Armor is her father.
  • This is followed by a lot of screaming, and Chrysalis leaving for cake.
  • Mr and Mrs Cake are not amused.
  • When Alterjack stops screaming, she finally expresses her horror that Shining Armor and Chrysalis, apparently, made some sweet bug-pony music and had a child.
  • She calms down immensely when they explain what Two actually is to them both.
  • She’s super relieved, because she was terrified what a pony changeling hybrid would look like. Could you imagine?
  • They, uh, they don’t react well to that.
  • SA gets home and is immediately sent out for cakes seconds after telling an unbothered Cadence about an Alternate Applejack.
  • Cadence is also acting very… odd.
  • Spike and Dash are way behind on the heroic entrance.
  • Luna is still in advertising.
  • When Alterjack meets the current Twilight, said bookhorese points out she can’t make a portal to send her home, because that wouldn’t fix the problem of a hole in the universe being open, and Alterjack reluctantly agrees to wait until their find it, and that Twilight will find the answer.
  • Just kidding, she blows off this, as she feels, ineffectual Twilight and says her Twilight will have it fixed in no time, so don't worry about it.
  • SA and Chrysalis bug the cakes.
  • AJ is suddenly worried Alterjack is going to miss Hearth’s Warming, but Alterjack doesn’t care, for she never celebrates it anyway.
  • When AJ asks if she wants to come stay with her for Hearth's Warming, she says maybe.
  • She also has a lot of questions as to why APPLEJACK TWO, the pony with HER HAIR, is the child of Shining Armor and Cadence. AJ has no answer.
  • Alterjack learns the joy of Marchmalleys.
  • Rarity cries over being worst princess, but Fluttershy makes her feel better.
  • SA, Chrysalis and the Cakes discuss being attractive in old age.
  • Vekir is not happy that someone is in 32’s seat, and Actarius feels her rabid wrath.
  • PJ has been training, and tracks mud all over Blueblood’s rooms. He lets her for personal reasons.
  • 12 and Screwloose are now working for the princesses as part of the agreement for her parole.
  • Pinkie visits her family for the holdays!
  • AJ insists Alterjack come for the holidays, but she is still reluctant, until three certain fillies fly by, having a fun race on hoverboards.
  • It’s then that she notices a certain apple-named one has, of all things, a cutie mark, and is stunned.
  • When Applejack-Prime asks her if her sister had a cutie mark too, Alterjack admits she doesn’t know.
  • After a pause, Alterjack relents, and says she’d like to go, just to see what’s different.
  • AJ says Granny is gonna flip.
  • Alterjack hopes so.

  • While he tries to sound smooth, everyone gets fed up and tells him just to cut to the point, and he reveals there’s an airvent that will lead them to the elevator they could use to get to the top floor.
  • They all head in, and eventually leave, not noticing a strange glow is following them
  • Fuzzy and the Buzz keep you updated
  • AJ discovers AUJ hasn’t been down to the farm at all, and her accent is slipping

  • Rarity and Fluttershy discuss her using ‘darling’
  • Celestia comes back from the empire to discover something shocking, the entire castle has been cleaned! All of it, top to bottom!
  • It doesn’t take her long to discover the cause, as Blueblood, Arana, Haymaker and every single staff of the Castle are waiting behind her, looking dirty and worn but satisfied.
  • Celestia asks Blueblood why he did this, and he’s confused, as he thought this is what she wanted.
  • She says no, she didn’t want a slave to clean up after her, she wanted him to see ‘this.’, and points to the staff that worked so hard to help him.
  • She says he never needed her forgivness, she would give it to any who was sorry, but he needed it from those he’d hurt every day.
  • Blueblood breaks down, and finally understands, as he says he’s sorry.
  • Celestia forgives him, and finally, says he can come home.
  • He replies back “I already am”
  • Blueblood is free
  • The A-team make it to the top of the elevator, and to their surprise find six different vents waiting for them. Six directions, and it doesn’t escape them that six isn’t exactly an uncommon number for teams.
  • After some reluctance and promises to hold back and go all out if they hear anyone in trouble, they all split up, each taking a different vent.
  • They’re in the heart of the tower now, and they leave just an instant before the elevator glows as well.
  • It’s too late.

  • Chrysalis is questioning if she's a good queen.
  • BUT FOR THE MAIN EVENT
  • Back with Spike and Sunset, it turns out Spike did NOT shoot Sunset, but the bang was the metal grate hitting the ground
  • He holds her at gunpoint, threatening to shoot her if she tries anything, and when asked if he plans to kill her Spike shoots back that's up to her.
  • He reveals he was at war with himself what to do with her, and if she should be given another chance, so he came up with a way to decide.
  • He tells her to call for Chitania to bring her inside, and if she does, he'll let her live and bring her back unharmed.
  • Sunset laughs him off, and reveals something. She didn't come in for wine because she was thirtsy. It's her celebration wine.
  • Right on cue, the strange blue glow that had been very slowly following them reaches them.
  • While Spike reels, Sunset mockingly tells him he can shoot if he wants, nothing will matter after this. She's won.
  • Just after she says this, the door to the room opens, and Chitania comes in looking for Sunset.
  • BAM!
  • A one in a million shot lands right in her mouth, and the Titan falls over, still and unmoving.
  • Spike's only response, "...Was that part of your plan?
  • This apparently sets off a chain event of some kind, as in another area away from town, an ex-criminal griffon worker named Blackbill is finishing up when a strange reading draws her away, and she's locked up in a tunnel that's not supposed to be on the map yet
  • Despite her friend Peppermint's protests, she goes further into the tunnel.
  • Eventually, she comes across a strange device pulsating with energy, and she can't escape before more energy comes in.
  • Peppermint has to listen as something tears her apart, helpless.
  • But back with Sunset, Spike is stunned it actually works and he has seemingly killed Chitania. Sunset is broken into a dead shock, unable to believe her eyes.
  • She meanders forwards, completely stunned, while Spike demands she turns around before it's too late, but she never does.
  • She finally gets up to Chitania, finding her face filled with black viens and her mouth dribbling a black sludge, unmoving and cold
  • Sunset, not believing that Chitania is really dead, demands to know why she didn't just get up and kill Spike when he was distracted. She questions why Chitania doesn't move, and finish this.
  • Spike pleads with her, repeating that Chitania is dead, but Sunset will not listen. Instead insisting that Chitania could not have let something like this kill her so close to victory and demands she get up.
  • She breaks when she realizes that the one time she didn't want someone to look for her, after a lifetime of being ignored just when she needed them the most, Chitania came. The one time she would have been better off forgotten, and Chitania didn't even check the door, because she wanted her to be around.
  • Finally, she breaks, and demands Chitania gets up.
  • Spike, realizing there's no chance to sway her back, takes aim.
  • Get up, Sunset cries, and ignores Spikes' pleas.
  • Get up she says again, and Spike admits defeat, "...I'm sorry, Applejack...but this is for everyone."
  • He takes aim.
  • She cries one last time for Chitania to get up.
  • He fires.
  • "...it's about time."
  • Gurgling black goo and pissed off, Chitania can't comment on that, or the bullet that just blew off chunks of her leg that protected Sunset.
  • Sunset, relieved, throws up a shield to protect them both with the momentary lapse of Spike's concentration, and starts to take Chitania off to finish what they started.
  • Spike tries to stop her, Sunset is having none of that.
  • "Ahem... would you kindly beat this dragon to death?"
  • Someone answers her magical call, and promptly beats Spike through the walls with inhuman speeds.
  • Flash informs Spike that this one's going to go even worse than last time.
  • Sunset, content, sends out a magical message for the others of the intruders, and to kill them, then carries Chitania off, and tells her to stay alive.
  • Stay alive, until they can be so much more.
  • The rest of the A-team hear her message, and realize they are so screwed.

  • it's time to finish this.
  • She opens the doors to her final room, the very top of the tower. Up there, in a massive and mostly empty white room, there are only three items.
  • The mirror portal. A console connected to it. And a giant green oblong thing that mostly resembles an egg. Strangely, it's the last one that really excites her.
  • After putting Chitania in a magical diamond shaped shield and stabbing it into the floor,s he begins the final act, "Hells Call."
  • Almost, at least.
  • At the last moment, she notices the computer says there's three individuals in this room, not two.
  • Initially, thinking it was 13, she asks "Why are you here?", as she wasn't supposed to, and more worryingly why she bothered to hide herself and where.

  • When SS says they're here to stop Sunset and Chitania, both sides wonder if they're the badguys.
  • At the end of their talk, both SS and SN look at the door, and debate what kinds of friends they are.
  • The kind of friends who stay out of the others way so they don't need protected,.
  • Or the kind of friends who give their best to help out.

  • After an opening from a lightning shock, she manages to stab him with the tip of her sword into the knife wound, only prevented from running him through by him catching it.
  • He tries to use the close quarters to burn her, but this is what she was waiting for. She pulls back her sword and with a flick, it suddenly sprays ice magic now. She shoves it into his mouth, stifles the flames down his throat and keeps him from breathing, and he goes limp.
  • She think she's won, and she takes a breather as the room around her is completely engulfed in flames.
  • Only to be corrected by a SNAP as he bites down, and breaks the sword, and after choking up the mostly melted ice reminding her of his dragon teeth. After she expresses anger that he broke her gift, she tries to stab him again, and he reminds her of the other thing Dragons can do.
  • He shoots up, and grabs hold of the burning ceiling, and calls out that he's fireproof before bringing down the entire ceiling on her.
  • Back with Flash and Diamond Tiara, DT is mocking his current awful appearance.
  • After a bitter back and forth, DT asks where Chitania is and Flash lets it slip Spike shot her.
  • He's horrified when she's actually excited by the prospect, and even more so when after asking if she's dead, DT makes it clear she's ready to finish her of.
  • When Flash asks about Sunset, DT admits that she was just going to drag her back to AJ, but when she learns Spike tried to kill her, it becomes less clear.
  • She resolves to figure that out when she gets there, and instead orders Flash to start talking. She's going to count to three.
  • At the last one, Flash can't take anymore, and screams if she wants to die like Spike did.
  • After a moment of her shock, he charges.
  • Everyone around felt the blast that shook the world.

LAST THREAD RECAP, DEATH COMES BUT NOT FOR ME EDITION!

  • Blueblood seeks friends
  • Two does not want in the bath
  • Pinkie and Dash play ball
  • Following the actions of Mecha-Chitania, which lead to the collapse of the tower and the inability of Chitania to save Sunset or the others before it went down, Celestia and Luna are struck by a sudden calling in their mind! They receive flashes of warnings from Discord as he struggles to contain Blue Luminescent, the chunk of the almighty left buried beneath Hoofington!
  • With this knowledge, they know something is wrong, and after pulling Pommel and Potsticker from their placements, they put the guard on high alert and charge after AJ's chem trails!
  • The griffons are miffed about this, a little bit.
  • They won't arrive in time
  • The scene directly before the building's collapse plays out, and we watch how the A-team survived. 7 dashed through the crumbling building with PJ and Spike in tow, finding Silver Spoon with Blossom's Pheonix sight, eventually going to just shooting in every direction and following the screams, and after grabbing a wounded Daw and DT he broke free of the building an instant before it collapsed.
  • But something is wrong
  • He understands what it is, when he watches the scene with Chitania unfold. The horror, the sadness as she calls and searching for Sunset, anyone, tells him that this is no lie.
  • Sunset and the rest were still inside, and 7 regrets it.
  • There is no regret inside of Mecha-Chitania, as Pennydrop feels the full power of the love she sapped putting her machine's power off all the charts. She's more powerful than she's ever been, and ready for a fight.
  • With a roar that shakes the heavens, Chitania unleashes all of her rage. Strangely, she does not go for her metal doppleganger just yet.
  • She smacks the ground with all her hate, and her anger, until she starts to break the ground free.
  • All around the city, cracks begin to appear. From there, comes the light.
  • The thing beneath the city is nearly unleashed, and Chitania prepares to confront it.
  • Only to be denied at the last moment when, before it can emerge, the plaid magic of a certain chaos user comes up, and pulls it back in.
  • Chitania is left despondent as it is sucked away, and sealed off. Even the confrontation with the god is denied her.
  • She sits there, silent and broken, until she hears a noise.
  • When Mecha-Chitania tries to attack her, all her rage, all her hate, breaks loose, and she charges them, delivering all her anger out on the one who took everything from her.
  • The first blow knocks them out of the destroyed city, and in fear all of the Airships crew flood out of MC and run away.
  • The next blow Pennydrop takes punts her across miles. Literal miles.
  • While she is afraid at first, Pennydrop gives into her own rage, matches Chitania blow for all powerful blow.
  • With nothing to lose, they both go all out with all they had, and the battle to end all Kaiju battles begins!
  • Their over the top bout takes them across landscapes, each blow able to send them flying.
  • A dazzling array of powers comes from MC, and always keeps Chitty from getting the advantage.
  • Destroying mountains, landscapes, battling in the sky, they eventually bring their fight to the inside of a massive storm cloud.
  • They come down to earth with a boom, and rise up far above it as they fight on! Going to even greater Titan Heights, the two cross vast distances with just their steps in the storm, eventually reaching the edge of the ocean, until a tactical move brings Chitania back down, only to feel the switch herself when Pennydrop cuts into the back of her neck with a blade and nearly takes her whole head off!
  • After they both sustain a major blow, Chitania sees something. A vision, of someone not there.
  • Her daughter.
  • She gives one final heartfelt speech saying how much she understands her now, and gives her one last piece of advice.
  • Live long, and when death comes, give it the greatest fight in eternity.
  • Final round, begin.
  • Down to just punches, Chitania and her mecha counterpart give blow after blow after painful blow, punching and punching and laying it all out in one final all out assault.
  • Then it all ends with a slip.
  • One mistake from Chitania, and it's too much. She is knocked into the sea, and she can't muster the strength to get back.
  • After one final roar, Pennydrop lays it all out.
  • Nothing held back, she uses the full arsenal of Mecha-Chitania on her, blasting her with every single weapon she has. Chunks are blown off under lasers, missiles, beams and rockets, until at last, Chitania falls.
  • She shrinks, and sinks beneath the sea.
  • Pennydrop gives her one hundred and twenty seconds, watching the waters, making sure she doesn't come up, making sure she drowns.
  • Then she opens fire again, just to be sure.
  • All the while, she cackles with glee. She'd won.
  • All of Equestria can see with her machines eyes, she's won.
  • A joyous cheer fills them all, except for six.
  • The A-team sits in silence, harrowed by all they'd been through, and give a weak speech.
  • "We did it, guys."
  • "...we won..."
  • It was time to go home.
  • But... it's not over yet.
  • Down further away, a monster has not been killed.
  • Breaching from the ocean, Chitania laughs to herself. Gryinidae, the changeling who claimed she could swim with her technique only to drown, had been right.
  • While all were sure no changeling could swim, they'd been right, save for one. Chitania, broken, beaten, bleeding out, survived.
  • Yet as she gets onto the beach, she wavers. After realizing they're all gone, she'd lost everything again, she wonders if she should just let the sea take her back, and give up.
  • She doesn't wonder for long.
  • She claws her way up the beach, determination in her eyes.
  • She's going to try again.
  • She's not dead.
  • She's not done.
  • And she is... horrified, when she hears a voice.
  • “WHERE IN TARNATION EVEN ARE WE!?”
  • It seems in her battle, she hit a very specific airship in the depths of that storm. Her pain had only begun.
  • "...bring it on..."
  • The battle had ended.
  • The battle had just begun.
  • Elsewhere, Celestia and Luna come across the destruction that had unfolded, all that had been ruined in the wake of the battle, and the scars on their land they're never sure would heal. With little to do, they do what they can.
  • All around Equestria, these problems are seen. From a lumberjack who's home was destroyed to a lake long loved now gone, to a dream of climbing a mountain literally shattered, the scars of Equestria lay deep.
  • And around that world, the word of what happened is spread.
  • With the words, the cheer is spread, the knowledge of the monster is slain is spoken.
  • To one, they cheer, "Thank you!"
  • But Pennydrop only has eyes for the ocean, where her foe was slain. To herself, she whispers
  • "I did it."
  • "I made them all obsolete."
  • A new era had begun, and this was only the beginning.

LAST THREAD RECAP, WHAT IS THAT EDITION!?

  • Gwen and Zephrious deal with a self-important guard who acts a little too cocky for their tastes, having his ego slightly inflated when he managed to convince Celestia to add more titles to the guard and gained the name Sergeant First-Class but when they hear news of Chitania’s defeat, all is forgotten.
  • Instead, Gwen leaves Zehprious to deal with Canterlot while she heads home. Or rather, deal with… King Zephyrious! That’s right, at some point, he took over the crown.
  • That’s one weight off Idris, but when Gwen arrives and she’s in the mood, that’s the only mercy he’s getting!
  • Spike doesn’t regret what he’s done, until he hears Twilight descending down on him. Then he regrets everything.
  • So does Rarity and Fluttershy, who really should not have hitched a ride with her.
  • But when Twilight actually lands, it’s not so much strangeling as hugging him and saying she’s sorry for ever letting it get this far.
  • Crying is had.
  • Daw has a heart to heart with Pommel where she talks about feeling isolated in Equestria, and how this finally felt like coming home again even if it all went wrong.
  • DT and Silver Spoon talk until Filthy Rich arrives. DT is so grounded
  • The CMC feel like they’re not living up to their potential, and discovering the formula to fire isn’t helping!
  • Derpy doesn’t regret punching anyone.
  • Pennydrop, while celebrating, is called back to base.
  • Pinkie forgot it was winter.
  • 77 saw some weird stuff with Cherry Berry
  • Twilight agrees to help DT.
  • Applejack and AUJ find themselves stranded in the middle of a storm. After a long chewing out, it’s revealed ‘something’ in the storm caused their ship to crash, tearing off a huge chunk and sending it down. Only now did the spell on AUJ break, and with no way out she’s begun working to get contact to the outside world.
  • To AUJ’s dismay, she only grabbed the receiver, not the transmitter. She can see what happened, but not call anyone.
  • That’s when both witness Chitania’s fall.
  • While AUJ is confused, AJ tries to brave the storm and get back to civilization, but can’t manage. Even giving it her all, she can’t get rid of the storm.
  • Broken, she declares it isn’t fair, and breaks down.
  • Back in hoofington, PJ and 007 have a heart to heart, where PJ admits she and everyone else expected 7 to screw them, and she apologizes. She also regrets not being able to look after him like she promised, even if he did, and she promises to make it up to him.
  • But before they can dwell on it too much, Chrysalis arrives, and she is ticked!
  • She gives PJ the option of who to punish her, her or Celestia, and PJ picks Celly.
  • After that she lays into 007, tearing him apart verbally and leaving him broken before moving on.
  • She, Celestia, Luna, Twilight, Shining and Cadence all gather around Hoofington’s remains and discuss what it could be. Twilight had no idea, none of it showing up on any part of her systems. After Fluttershy reveals Discord is holding it back, Celestia breaks down and admits she has a theory. Of a battle a long time ago, when the force for good overcame great evil, but during the battle, she was wounded.
  • Twilight asks if she’s sure, and she admits she’s not, it was before her time. If it is that, then releasing it, even to get the others out, could mean the end.
  • At first, they despair, but when Shining Armor puts up a barrier little by little they join in resolve, and add to his shield to wall off the city from the rest of the world.
  • At the end, they realize they need to find some way to figure out Twilight’s theory, and she has a possible way.
  • Just ask someone who was there.
  • Far, far away, two eyes of fire opened wide.

  • After a bit of back and forth yelling, AJ comes to a shocking conclusion from AUJ's behavior.

  • AUJ follows her though the forest as she flies, begging her to stop, but unable to make that happen.
  • She finally stops AJ physically, and demands for her to stop. AJ reacts violently, accusing her of already attacking her, tearing loose verbally and physically.
  • After trying to deny her claims that someone is out there, AUJ eventually slips up due to AJ's mad ramblings and reveals someone is out there.
  • When AJ and AUJ both have different opinions on who should handle the matter, AJ thinking herself and AUJ claimingshe had her chance and blew it, it looks like a fight is about to break out.
  • And it would have, if AUJ hadn't accidentally said the name of the one she's following.
  • When AJ hears Chitania, everything falls apart.
  • Eventually she admits she thought it was someone else, and when pressed why it was so important, AJ admits why.
  • ...Ah' need one more chance to make it right.
  • AUJ Slaps her for that one, and declares she doesnt' deserve to be a princess. When AJ tries to fight back, she easily overpowers her and declares she doesn't deserve that power. She doesn't know what it means or is capable of.
  • More importantly, she can't see the big picture.
  • Thus follows a long chew out where AUJ tells her about how many are counting on her, what it means to have that kind of power and position, and how selfish and stupid she's being.
  • She accuses her of just letting it slide and monologues about how important it is to put her personal cares and family aside.
  • Finally, when asked what AJ plans to do, AJ just says she doesn't have all the information.
  • AUJ thinks she knows enough, and so does she.
  • She drops AJ, and heads into the forest, declaring that she'll show her what justice looks like.

  • She questions what she'd done before, and if she was wrong to do it.

  • Though AJ is furious at the beginning, she begins to wonder if it really was for the best now that it’s finally over. Everything is finally finished and they can rest
  • When AUJ offers a way to finally be the princess Equestria needs, it’s a very tempting offer.
  • She might’ve accepted, if a sudden noise didn’t startle them.
  • Chitania lives.
  • Both set off, AUJ trailing behind AJ, as they follow the path, and all the while AJ is at war with herself if she should finally finish it, finally kill Chitania for all she’s done, and what it will mean if she doesn’t.
  • When she comes across a body on the side of the river, she hefts her spear and prepares to avenge Sunset.
  • But then she stops, to AUJ’s annoyance.
  • Turns out that isn’t why she stopped, it was just that the ‘body’ was another of the puppets. The rope that was pulling it lead right into the raging river, with nothing on the other side.
  • Again, it seems like it’s all over.
  • Only SURPRISE! It wasn’t a puppet, it was Chitania!
  • The bug grabs AJ and pulls her beneath the water, and though AJ tries she just can’t escape before she goes down.
  • AUJ splits the entire river downstream to grab them, but to her surprise there’s nothing there.
  • Nope, with her newfound swimming, Chitania is UPRiver, and with a cackle she escapes into the woods.
  • AUJ pursues her but can’t get close enough in time.
  • Too late, she’s brought to an open field and AJ is dropped before Chitania vanishes.

  • DT continues her own dream adventure, even being confronted by her mother on the dreamscape before finally telling her off once and for all!
  • Chrysalis learns the 13 is not in the hive or stadium from a changeling she sent to tail 42, for completely non-if 13 gets violent reasons. Worried, she sends the changeling back out, and he seems to turn around for a second before leaving again... or does he?

  • Twilight at last finally begins her surgery to repair Diamond Tiara. After listing all the things wrong, she gets to work.
  • She first has to repair all the damage and take off the badly healed sections, but runs into a problem.
  • Undeterred, she uses a magical spell to see and act literally on the smallest possible level and repairs the body from there, because Twilight isn’t playing.
  • She does everything she could, but in the end couldn’t fix everything, DT is still going to have to heal and won’t be able to walk for a bit.
  • Exhausted, but happy she could do that much, she walks off and collapses.
  • The CMC got saved by winona who is a good girl.
  • JJ and Acty feel like celebrating
  • Fluttershy had fun with portals
  • BUT FOR THE MAIN EVENT!
  • The final talk with Chitania and AJ begins, and it begins with a strange offer! The Sun!
  • Yes, that one special spell that lets any pony raise or lower the sun, or in Twilight’s case bounce it around, is now up for grabs according to AJ, if Chitania will answer some questions. She can finally fulfill her childhood dream!
  • Chitania is of course shocked, wondering how AJ could have possibly known of her childhood fancy, and AJ comes clean, admitting she read her diary. Chitania is furious, but doesn’t attack.
  • Instead, she wonders why AJ thinks she still wants it, and AJ is shocked, thinking this was all Chitty ever wanted. In fact, she seems to have grown out of it, and thinks it silly.
  • AJ is disappointed, admitting that she doesn’t have anything else to give and no other offer to make, she can’t stop the Queen.
  • Despite insisting she no longer needs it, Chitania hesitates before leaving, and after some musing she decides she wants to put it to rest, and accepts to answer AJ’s questions.
  • AJ’s first question “Why did you kill Sunset”, does not go as planned. Mostly due to the sudden fury and choking.
  • That’s when AJ learns of what really befell Sunset, and finds herself horrified at what Spike has done. Both the initial attempt and subsequent ordering to glass the building.
  • This is when Chitania also learns AJ didn’t order the attack, and that she was the cause of the airship going down, so AJ couldn’t have known where she would end up in the battle.
  • Applejack breaks down, blaming Chitania for what happened to Sunset and angrily calling her out for turning a good pony wrong by exploiting a bad moment. When pressed, she admits she tried to find a way to fix Sunset, but couldn’t figure out how the biology stuff even worked, let alone how to do something so complicated.
  • She also reveals Twilight didn’t stop, she hit a roadblock out of fear of killing Sunset, or worse, making her a monster like she’d done Flash.
  • After a few choice words, AJ admits it was all her fault, and when she asks Chitania what spell she used to fix Sunset, she realizes it didn’t matter at all.
  • Chitania tries to take her prize with the question answered, but AJ managed to pull a fast one on her, never saying that was the question for the bargain.
  • Though angry and suspicious, Chitania accepts when AJ asks them to move locations, and both go up into the clouds.
  • Up there AJ asks what she’s going to do next, and is stunned when Chitania says she’s going right back to her previous goal. Thinking she really is a monster now.
  • Angry, she demands to know if Chitania ever really thought Sunset was her friend, and Chitania will only answer if it’s the final question.
  • Though tempted when Chitania offers anything else, including the spell used to fix Sunset, she sticks to her guns and says that’s the final question.
  • Reluctantly, Chitania says she was. And when pressed, she says Sunset was happy.
  • Driven to tears, though not just sad ones, AJ admits she’s glad that Sunset found a friend, she’d tried to be that friend but hadn’t managed.
  • AJ asks if Chitania misses them, and despite her attemtps to brush it off she pushes forwards.
  • Chitania declares it’s pointless, because what could have been doesn’t matter, so why ask it now?
  • AJ says because she wants to keep trying.
  • When Chitania is obviously baffled at her doing that now, of all times, and that it’s too late, AJ just insists, saying there’s still time and neither of them are dead yet.
  • When Applejack implies she wants to make it right, Chitania asks if she can raise the dead, to which she says no. The Queen implies she’s going to take her revenge instead.
  • AJ asks if that will make it okay, if that will be justice, which the other thinks is a silly word and means nothing, but the pony insists it means a lot to her, because she’s been chasing it this whole time and thinks she’s found it.
  • Chitania insists she wants vengeance, not justice, AJ asks what’s the difference to her? If Chitania hurts them, they hurt back, and so on, and nothing gets better.
  • Finally Chitania can’t take it anymore and asks what AJ wants to do if that is not justice, lock her up? Kill her?
  • Applejack admits the former wouldn’t work because eventually she would get out, and while she could likely do the latter someday, always another weapon after all, it would only continue the cycle.
  • Chitania asks what is her justice then, and AJ finally spells it out. Understanding.
  • She says Chitania finally understands what it’s like to be one of her victims, what it’s like to lose everything on a whim, what it’s like to lose friends and family to something that couldn’t be stopped or defeated, and so on.
  • What Chitania wants is not justice.
  • The Queen rages, punching at AJ and declaring that the words mean nothing, and it will not stop her vengeance or keep her from getting back at those who hurt her. Enraged, she demands to know why AJ thinks she’d let them go.
  • AJ says she’s not letting them go, she wants something else instead.
  • Let her do it.
  • Of course Chitania laughs it off, but eventually some choice words get to her, and she wonders if she should let AJ try to prove it.
  • Weakened, she asks why now, of all times. Now, when she’s lost everything.
  • ”Even if they’re gone… you’re not. Not yet.”
  • Chitania asks if she tried to reach heaven, will AJ stand in her way?
  • She says maybe, if she thinks it’ll hurt someone… but she’ll try to understand.
  • Chitania is about to say her response, but runs out of time.
  • Her Love Armor falls off and falls apart, and the source of her power leaves her. Naked and exposed with AJ, nothing but her crown remaining, AJ points out this is her only chance to stop her, and Chitania readies to fight
  • Instead, she offers a hoof, with a glowing orb.
  • Chitania takes it, and the power of the Sun with it, and after a parting word she leaves the pony behind.
  • Alone, AJ resolves to make a better future, and looks down on the ruined landscape below.
  • With this newfound optimism, she finally reaches deep into her power, and tried to make it right.
  • A new rain falls on the barren landscape, that of seeds. They don’t instantly grow, it’s not an immediate fix, but it’s a beginning.
  • A new beginning, for a new age.
  • She’s going to fix Equestria with her understanding.
  • Her Justice.

  • Celestia's attempts to trap Chrysalis do not work.
  • Coco is still best drill sargent
  • Celestia's attempts to intimidate a changeling into telling her where Chrysalis is goes very badly!
  • The giant spider beneath the CMC tries to eat them, and the trick from Winona fails to make the Dread Knight kill that one too. They're desperate and running out of time.
  • Eventually, they offer Sweetie Belle for a whole week if they get out of this alive.
  • The Dread Knight doesn't know what that says about him that he agrees to it then.
  • With that said, the dread knight then points out that the Spider can't reach them anyway or it would have already, and sure enough the fact it's eyes reach one side to the other should have clued them in sooner.
  • They relax, until the Spider suddenly pushes both sides of the hole and splits it wide open.
  • Shit has gotten real.
  • Domshy is really candid about sex talk and also Zephyr is there what!?
  • Someone is dreaming, and it's a scary dream.
  • AJ and AUJ talk about Sunset, and weirdly AUJ tries to help AJ.
  • Shining annoys Twi.
  • Twi eventually comes to the conclusion that despite shooting a glowing light into the air, nothing is really worse off than before. None of her equipment can detect anything else going wrong, and Blue isn't coming out.
  • Even so, it's kind of worrying since the light is apparently reaching up into space and beyond.
  • With that in mind, she takes as many samples as she can get and decides to scan them in her lab where it will actually be useful.
  • Despite AJ worrying that Twilight is still distracted by Diamond Tiara, Twilight assures her that she is fine and can handle it.
  • She leaves, but Shining, AJ and AUJ decide to wrap it up there before they go first.
  • After Twilight leaves, Shining suddenly realizes that AUJ never told him what he was like in her world!
  • There's no face hoof strong enough.
  • AUJ shuts him down immediately and gets hostile when the issue is pushed.
  • Having enough, she stomps off, leaving the pair behind. AJ decides to go after her while Shining declares he's going to do some last minute work with the guards, and they decide to meet back up in a bit.
  • AUJ meanwhile is bitter as she stands alone, wondering why her Twilight hasn't brought her home yet.
  • AJ finds her fact enough, and after a breif talk about how she acted, AJ cuts right to the chase and asks AUJ a simple question.
  • "Why don't they want you back?"

  • PJ wants to invite 7 to poker
  • Shining Armor worries that he's dead in the other world
  • Potsticker is unhelpful
  • AUJ is ticked AJ thinks they don't want her, and after some arguments, some choice words that stops AJ from asking anymore about alternate Shining, and revealing it's been some time since she'd had fun with her friends, AUJ admits her real fear, that something is stopping them from getting her back.
  • Shining, while searching and thinking about his problems, comes across an odd hooded unicorn on the edge of the the city.
  • Siegfried and Delight talk about the time with Gwen, and things go wrong.
  • Shining confronts the unicorn, but after finding out it's not Sunset, he offers to take her out of town. Along the way he lets loose his real feelings about Sunset's death which shocks even him, and both of them talk
  • At the end, she gives him her name.
  • Starlight Glimmer
  • Pennydrop meanwhile muses about the beauty of Blue.
  • AUJ finally lets it all out how much she's panicking at all the things that could have gone wrong over at her world, and is terrified they are all suffering now that she's gone. AJ tries to comfort her, to no avail, as AUJ knows her Twilight wouldn't leave her behind.
  • AJ finally grows angry when AUJ also hints at something else stopping Twilight and finally breaks, angry that she's being so vague and hiding so much that she reminds her of Chrysalis.
  • AUJ takes offense, but reveals the reason she tries not to talk about it is that AJ would doubt.
  • Being fully honest, AUJ says what happened in her world had to happen, there was no stopping it, but in this world it could be avoided. But if AJ knew, she'd always doubt if it was supposed to happen or not, she'd spend her whole life wondering if something was wrong, and she didn't want that.
  • Reluctantly, AJ finally drops the matter.
  • But, AUJ says if it'll save some trouble later, she'll tell her everything.
  • After a bit more talk, they come to the conclusion the only way to get her back home is this universes Twilight, and Auj has to agree, accepting if she can, AUJ will admit she's a better princes than her, and will show her how to make the amulet.
  • Things are finally looking up.
  • That's when they both spot something off in the distance.
  • Fluttershy is not happy about Zephyr working with Domshy
  • Celestia and Luna are confronted by Rarity and Dash
  • Pennydrop discovers Super Ponio brothers.
  • Shining Armor apologizes for yelling at Starlight earlier, and she waves him off.
  • She talks about how a vacation might do him wonders, which he agrees to.
  • Both of them then muse that both are hiding something they don't want others to see.
  • Starlight reaches a safe point and mentions her village, which might be a nice place to visit when she also spots something.
  • Serene, she tells him to lift his forelegs, which he does.
  • BoomCRACK
  • Flashback a bit, and we see Cadence, sitting in her bed, calm as anything when she asks Spitfire to come close.
  • That's when she very calmly mentions that her water just broke and-
  • SSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNG AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRMMMMMMOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRR!
  • Back with Shining, now being carried by Spitfire and the problem is BABY! IT'S BABY! BABY IS COMING!
  • BABBYYYYYYY!
  • Everyone feels it.
  • EVERYONE.
  • Lots of reaction stories.
  • When they can't find a doctor who can help, they grab a random pony off the street.
  • HIM! That pony shall work!
  • Thus begins a point and click adventure game.
  • Because.
  • But on to the final event!
  • 42 cofronts 13 and they talk about how she found her and why 13 needs to come home.
  • There's a back and forth discussion on the nature of Hives and how their lives could have been so different.
  • 13 point blank asks if the princesses wanted her mother dead, and she can only answer that Chrysalis did not.
  • 13 muses about being a coward, before she finally tries to leave, casting a mind spell to stop 42.
  • But she's prepared! 42's body lights up with runes of some sort, and though she won't reveal how it works yet, she will tell 13 all about it from a holding cell!
  • She teleports and punches!
  • It does nothing
  • Shocked at how weak she is, 42 keeps trying to no avail.
  • Both are equally matched and exhaust each other
  • At least, until 13 pulls out her laser beam, which 42 can't dodge.
  • Chrysalis rescues her at the last moment! Taking the hit without a flinch.
  • 13 is flabbergasted and unable to speak when Chrysalis lays into her.
  • Yet, she still offers her a way out.
  • But 13 doesn't take it.
  • She just says she's sorry, and she never wanted Chrysalis to know she could do this, and then everything goes green mid dive.
  • When 42 hits Chrysalis's legs, everything has changed.
  • For instance, it's no longer early morning.
  • Up above, a voice cries out! It's Twilight!
  • She's shocked when Chrysalis points out she just saw twilight go into the castle, saying she's been across the country and back!
  • 13 somehow made them completely stop in time, enough they're now covered in dust!
  • Chrysalis is striken, unable to even think in horror of what this means, that she, A Queen, was bested in mind magics.
  • It falls on 42 to reveal the threat of Chitania's lineage is not yet over...
  • And it falls on Twilight to get off 7, who's not dead.
  • A new foe has emerged!

Thread 210Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP! CADDY GONNA CHOKE A HUBBY EDITION!

  • 18 thinks the doctor is weird.
  • The Crystal Guard realize they're idiots
  • Chrysalis is not okay
  • The doctor is not sure what to make of Cadence's scream
  • Fluttershy is going to hit her other self but no time for that! Pinkie realizes what the twitchy tail means and is off for balloons!
  • The Rarity-Celestia-Dash argurment continues until a guard comes in with a special announcement! BABEH!
  • Nobody believes Seven beat Sunset
  • The snow is further than it should be
  • Celly, Luna and Rarity all trying to fit through the portal at the same time is a bad idea.
  • Chrysalis doesn't feel like talking.
  • Mares don't understand, says Blueblood
  • Cup and Carrot Cake missed Pinkie
  • Fuzzy and Buzz tell everyone about Cadence
  • Twilight finally brings the lings to her lab and there's much work to do.
  • She wants to examine Chrysalis for any sign of mind control residue, but Chrysalis will not have any of it and Twilight relents.
  • Seven is not put in a tube to recover, but a dome! A DOME!
  • Forty Two accepts her help without complaint and offers her mind to be looked at instead.
  • After Twilight goes off to look at Spike, 42 and Chrysalis talk, with 42 reluctantly as to give praise to 7 for finding 13 in time.
  • Alone, they ignore the guard Chrysalis needs a minute.
  • Twilight goes to check n Spike, and is very curt with him as she gives him a tablet with some stories on it to read while she fixes everything else.
  • She doesn't tell Spike about Blue
  • The Doctor's Point and Click adventure continues! He traverses around the area and apparently after some talking stumbles across a room containing all the most girlish parts of every mare in the castle. It's littered with pink stuff, posters of boy bands, and some very questionable diamond dog reading material!
  • After getting a blanket which takes some clever defeating of a guard by pushing, he gives Cadence an item he scrounged from the room! THE REDHEAD SHINING DOLL RETURNS!
  • Nobody is sure who dug that thing up, but it makes a perfect distraction while Cadence chokes the life out of it.
  • Still, he needs Cadence to slow down, so he thinks of the only thing he can, a story!
  • The power of shipping fuel works!
  • But his adventure isn't over yet...
  • Celestia tries to lay ground rules but it's pointless, everyone agrees giving birth is gross and don't want to see it.
  • EVERYONE.
  • Shining and Spitfire arrive at the Empire! Shining has second thoughts about entering, so a magical choke hold brings him through the door.
  • Through the door.
  • Spitfire gets updated.
  • DT continues her dream battle, only her foes are still growing bigger and stronger every time she wins, and seemingly without end!
  • After hearing from Fuzzy and Buzz about the baby, Domshy poofs Zephyr and Regshy to the Empire! Her teleporting needs work.
  • Shining suffers.
  • Back at Canterlot, that guard is still banging, and Chrysalis is still ignoring him.
  • Instead she focuses on the fact she can't believe anything 13 said anymore, or herself, and doesn't know how long 13 has had the power to control her. After all, changelings don't leave traces behind.
  • But 7 then chimes in about all he learned at Evo tower and from his talk with 13 when he gathered all her information.
  • Chrysalis and 42 have to reluctantly admit they didn't figure that out either, and wouldn't have without him.
  • Frustrated now, Chrysalis can't take it anymore, and answers the door. He says one word.
  • Baby.
  • AND SHE'S OFF! Rapidfire teleporting away with 42 and leaving 7 behind!
  • Even the dome doesn't want him either.
  • Back in Zecora's hut, it seems someone has forgotten something. A pair of shadowy, unknown figures slink in, and steal the Alicorn Amulet!
  • Back with the CMC, the Massive Spider closes in, and nobody can figure anything out, even the Dread Knight is pretty useless!
  • At least, until they point out the simple fact that for a dread knight, he's not very dreadful.
  • Why, it seems the Spider is more dreadful, but not a knight?
  • Not until Applebloom and Sweetie Belle knight it, and it's legit!
  • Not-as-Dread Knight can't stand for this! So he does something crazy!
  • Jumps right into the center of the web and pushes it right in the Spider's face, who's so taken back it moves backwards!
  • JUST AS PLANNED!
  • Winona cuts both of them free at the last second and the web springs them to the top.
  • Both combine their weight/sword into a hurricane stab, and blast right through the Spider!
  • And then promptly pull the CMC down further into the hole.
  • The journey continues!

  • But then, she wonders...

Thread 212Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP, SHOCKING RETURN GO!

  • Flurry is asleep and cute!

  • Everyone wonders about what the criteria is to make Alicorns now
  • Twilight sees Flurry is an alicorn and goes science crazy

Thread 214Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP, THE FORGOTTEN EDITION!

  • Aj has a question about princesses
  • The fire from last thread turns out to be just a random panel exploding, nothing big.
  • Now, the cults who cropped up because they were lost without their princesses, that was another matter entirely.
  • AJ talks about Spike
  • 18, Spitfire and 42 get drunk
  • Celestia and Luna check up on Pommel.
  • 10 and BBB spot 7
  • Celestia and Luna tell Blueblood NO. For no reason, just NOOOO
  • Lighting Dust is still WB captain
  • Pinkie wants a cagematch
  • After making a very odd agreement with Vekir, the Griffon Guards are worried about the still sleep deprived Hilda who won't go to sleep.
  • Zephyrious finally comes home much to the very tired Hilda's childlike glee. He carries her to bed, sure that the world won't explode if the throne is empty for a minute.
  • AJ and AUJ talk
  • Twilight comes up to find the guard still banging on her door
  • AJ asks AUJ who she's fucking
  • Celestia and Luna find SO MUCH PAPERWORK
  • The guards tell AJ what went wrong
  • Rekulk tells AJ to stop being so noisy. By that he means all of Canterlot
  • Celly and Luna run from paperwork to bug Twi
  • Rarity and AJ talk about making family
  • Screwloose and 12 continue the battle against the unholy creation and learn about Flurry. They finally manage to pull out 8-bit and Gaffer and altogether destroy the thing in one epic final attack!
  • 56 tells Silver Spoon what his Cuz used to do when he was scared. It doesn't help.
  • Pinkie gives AUJ props for a good joke
  • Celestia and Luna are concerned what them walking down the hall looks like.
  • Flim and Flam's talkshow is back!
  • Maud, Awkawrdling and the Rainbolts notice the storm has gone
  • Blossom looks for 7
  • Celetia and Luna want cake, and Pinkie gets it from the Cakes
  • Luna has a need for Twilight, BUT WAIT! There is one who needs her! To the dream realm!
  • Which means standing in the middle of Twilight's room.
  • Twi is not happy.
  • Everyone pretends she's not there.
  • OOCO Tiempo talks to Sunburst and then explains the basis of his seemingly impossible gloves to Rarity, who doesn't notice there's some rather large holes in his story.
  • Gilda gets lost and ends up talking to Farmerling
  • Gambling and Quicksilver are missing shrimp
  • Celestia tells Twi to leave Luna alone or she won't pardon Pinkie again
  • 88 got smashed waiting for 7
  • AJ is pretty biting to Rarity
  • Bonbon is having none of Lyra and Cloduchasers shit
  • Zanta approves Arf Kelly.
  • Rumble gets a muffin and maybe a balloon
  • Spike gets a gift from Arana
  • FOR THE FIRST MAIN EVENT!
  • OOCO Luna continues her talk with DT, telling her about 56's past in order to bring up how DT's own actions cause widespread destruction not immediately visible.
  • DT tries to turn the conversation to 56 also being a soldier, but Luna admits that while there were similar things, there were some things different about it, specifically what dragged him to do it.
  • From there she moves on to speaking of another who has been hurt by DT's actions, Silver Spoon
  • Before she can talk DT screams she didn't want Silver Spoon involved, but SS forced the matter by saying she wouldn't be her friend anymore.
  • But then Luna points out if she devoted herself entirely to battles and Silver Spoon wasn't allowed near them, where did that leave her friend?
  • She points out that the more dedicated DT became to being a warrior, the less time she had with Silver and left her feeling useless.
  • If DT won't let her be with her in battle, what is Silver Spoon supposed to do?
  • DT admits she doesn't want to lose her friend and is confused.
  • She wants her to afraid and safe, but what's wrong with wanting her to keep up?
  • So, Luna brings up the orphan ghosts 29 deals with, and how they had to adapt and persue tragic lives before their end.
  • DT asks what that has to do with her, Luna points out that every battle leaves something like that behind.
  • She talks about Hoofington, and how many orphans just like that have been created, how many are lost and now left behind.
  • Even if she did not directly cause the destruction, she helped cause it and now the weight of the world still bears down on those left behind.
  • They cannot be the burdens of ones like DT and SS, because then they wouldn't know what is good in life.
  • DT asks if 29 really helps them.
  • Luna says he was, and that he was the one who sent the wayward children to rest.
  • She points out that he only sought to help not fight, and he did so knowing that he wouldn't be praised or rewarded for it.
  • Luna points out that his actions were all something DT sorely neglects, which is making sure others are taken care of between the battles.
  • DT admits she doesn't help much without fighting but doesn't see the problem since nobody asked.
  • Luna points out that, much like herself, DT comes off so abrasive nobody would ask, even if they need help.
  • DT is always preparing for the next fight, getting ready for bigger battles, but she does nothing to prevent those battles from happening at all. She's making things worse all the time.
  • Luna points out that if that same mindset had prevailed back at the start, that 56 was an invader and there was a war that broke out, there would be fights, and there would be victors and losers.
  • If the battle had gone as both sides had wanted, there would be many left dead, and the only reason it did not is many, not just one, tried their best to make sure it never happened, and as a result the war never came and Changelings and Ponies live peacefully
  • DT is faced with a choice. She can let the preparation consume her until one day she is untouchable and none could hope defeat her, but if she does none will be able to keep up with her and she'll lose her friends
  • Or, she can seek antoher path, and find a balance.
  • DT asks how she finds the answer, and Luna says it's just her dream after all.
  • Though she's still a little worried, she's somewhat at peace when she lays her head and goes back into a peaceful slumber, with Luna declaring she will watch over her dreams from now on.
  • DT rests and Luna wakes up.
  • Tis done.
  • FOR THE OTHER MAIN EVENT!
  • The final battle between 29, Trixie, Zecora and Mayor Mare and the conglomerated light ghosts of the Crystal Ponies begins!
  • Only, it doesn't go as expected.
  • The giant beings comprised of dozens of souls are all in trying to attack the others, but the four instead trick them into hitting inflatables, dancing, or showing them shows.
  • They're not in it for the giant grand battles, they just want to finally send them on.
  • This makes them hesitate, until they hear Sombra struggling to get out of 32's hold while said bug was trying to sneak the guy away.
  • This enrages the light beings and they go all out, trying to trap the six in their faux Crystal Empire city.
  • But instead, they four are so powerful in this realm now that they know it's a dream they're able to free themselves and break the entire city in half.
  • So enraged the ghosts combine themselves into one horrifying misshapen entity and attack again with their full power.
  • The ghosts are relentless and try to attack them with the shards of the broken city, breaking down and losing composure during the attack which proves ineffectual.
  • 29 stops them and breaks apart, explaining this world they're trying to make is not as the Empire is now, it's just what it was before.
  • They maintain they have to keep Sombra there for what he did.
  • The others sans Sombra explain that it's more important they let go and move on, because they're holding themselves there too.
  • Though the ghosts keep repeating they'll be happy just to see him suffer, the others talk to them and point out why they're wrong using their own experiences.
  • When that doesn't work, Sombra finally steps forwards and says he'll stay and they can go on. He'll remain in that world forever if it means they can leave.
  • They still rage at him, asking him why when he can never be forgiven.
  • Sombra says he accepts that, but he wanted to do what he could to make the world better. If this is the way, he'll pay it.
  • The still say they can't leave, or this place will go away.
  • "As it should"
  • The others point out why locking Sombra up forever would solve nothing, how if he wants to make the world better, they're stopping that for petty reasons that hold them back just as much as they do him. They can't move on until they accept that he wants to do good with what he has left.
  • They're still unsure, what if he does it again?
  • The five say they'll look after him and make sure, and if he breaks his word again they'll take him where he needs to go.
  • The burden is now theirs, and they can move on.
  • Reluctantly, the ghosts all agree, and one by one all are taken into the light.
  • All except one, a child who's not ready yet, not until Sombra gently pushes him on and the child understands.
  • A voice talks to them and thanks them for finally bringing the others home.
  • Sombra hears another voice, one very familiar, telling him he has another chance, and to earn it.
  • When the last soul leaves,It's finally done.
  • They go home.
  • Sombra is the last to wake up in the broken hut they all started in, and finds something shocking. He has his body back!
  • But it doesn't stay. Before he can even enjoy it, his body turns to crystal. He can still move and feel pain, but aside from faint feelings that's all. He says it's what he deserves.
  • But when 29 puts his hoof on Sombra's shoulder, something amazing happens. The crystal goes away, and his body is back! But when the hoof is released, it's back to Crystal. When 32 tries it, it doesn't work.
  • They're confused why until that voice from earlier explains.
  • With every act of kindness and exposure to 'the light' the crystal will break. When he's earned it only then will he be free.
  • Now, he must earn his way back to a body and find peace and rest.
  • Sombra thanks everyone for what they've done and says he can never repay them. They respond he can, and hug him back long enough for him to feel the warmth.
  • It's over... right after Zecora notices her hutt is completely trashed.
  • In the epilogue, a certain someone in a certain barracks gets a surprise from a certain 'cuz'.
  • Nobody will ever speak of the noise 56 makes, but the hug will never be forgotten.
  • They're finally home!

Thread 215Edit

LAST THREAD RECAP, WHO WHAT WHERE EDITION!

  • Everyone reacts to the Ghostbusters being alive, and they find out they've been gone for months.
  • Sombra returns to the empire and finds out about Flurry
  • 29 reunites with 56 and it's adorable.
  • The moon suddenly turns blue, and nobody is sure if they GB's are connected. Luna attempts to strangle it out of 29, only to find out no.
  • Everyone panics as they attempt to find out the cause.
  • 29 meanwhile learns about Sunset and is devastated
  • Chitania is out in the wildernes trying to figure out her next move.
  • But elsewhere, in the bad side of Baltimare, we learn a shocking truth. 13 goes into an abandoned resteraunt and it's revealed that Sunset and the others are alive! They were saved by 13 after she turned around from 007 nearly spotting her.
  • But they're not okay. In addition to Flash being barely functional and Fizzle being still badly beaten, Sunset has lost one of her legs and replaced it with a robot leg!
  • More importantly, it was none other than herself that did it, despite the broken leg she removed and placed in a vat being fixable with just a few weeks of recovery.
  • But she can't afford to slow down, not now. She has to get Chitania back from the hivemind, after all.
  • And the portal, still sporting Variolus's orb, is the way to do it.
  • The battle begins anew!

  • Maybe it's 42, who teleported onto fire
