"hmmmm" the creature hummed "It's been to quiet lately, for months the master emerald has gone untouched
He began to walk down the shrine to the ruins
"I haven't heard a word from Sonic and the others in a long time, Eggman's doing god knows what, and rouge I don't even know"
He crossed his arms and began to think
He was known as Knuckles the Echidna the last of the Echidna clan and the protector of the Master Emerald; the great power for which he protected. He is honest, Independent, short-tempered and is strongly devoted to his duty. He is the type of person to take everything serious and never the person to kid around.
As he walked around the ruins he noticed something, something glowing
"what is that?" he thought
It was under piles of a fallen structure. He used his amazing strength and moved the piles of stone with ease. He had a clear view of what it was but did not know what it is.
" Maybe Tails will know something" he though analyzing it
He started off toward station square hoping Tails would know something
"Ow that hurt" Rainbow dash said while giving the wall a face high five
"Well at least she lasted long that time" said Bocoe said
"But not long enough" Eggman said while thinking of another idea
Rainbow dash have spent hours in Eggmans' training simulator, He was creating virtual realities for Rainbow to train in. This one was a desert battle against a giant robot worm
"Hey Doc can we take a break, I'm getting hungry" Rainbow said trying to keep her pride for not being worn out
"Yeah find I'll have Bukkun make you something" Eggman replied
"Thanks" she opened open her wings "ah, dangit still sore"
She trotted out of the room with Bukkun giving her some fruit
"Leave you two, I need to think"
"Yes doctor" they both said at the same time
" What am I doing wrong; she has been through 5 different simulations all ending in faluire. I saw her do incredible things in the city, why can't she pass one stinking test he let out a sigh " wait a minute... He started to think back to when they first met"
"Good, but next time you face sonic he will fight you with all his power and hold nothing back how are you fighting a fast-moving, hyper-active beings before in fact what have you done that involve you straining yourself"
"Well " she started to think back at all the time where she relied on others to aid her
"Nothing really, it's usually peaceful I have always got my friends to back me up whenever there is trouble, BUT I still do heroic stuff in Ponyville like rescue people from certain death. But other than that not really, no" </b>
"Of course, she does have amazing powers but I'm unlocking them all the wrong way...maybe "
He pushed his intercom button
"Rainbow Dash, report to the training hall. I have a solution"
Rainbow just finished drinking her water
"Oh boy these training wacha-ma-call-it are intense. There's no way this sonic guy can do this, but I guess that what's is going to make me better than him"
She started going to the training room
"Now to do some experimenting" Eggman said popping his knuckles
He reached over to another button on the opposite side of the training room control room, and something rose up in front of him, a Chaos Emerald
"Computer transfer the Chaos Emerald into the training simulator and fire up the Dream Seeker"
"Dream seeker?" Decoe Questioned "I don't remember you constructing something like that"
"Of course not, it's my brand new invention, I made this to have the ability to see into the minds of others and learn what I can from their past experience, but with the power of the Chaos Emerald and it being hooked up to the training simulator, I will have Rainbow Dash fight someone she has already defeated so that I will know how she can become stronger. I made this because of a past failure I had, but that matters not. Now we test it"
He started to develop a grin
"Computer, begin start up of Dream Seeker. DECOE, BOCOE transfer the Chaos Emeralds' power to the Dream Seeker, BOKKUN hook the Dream Seeker up to the Training rooms' power source.NOW!"
"YES SIR" all three of them replied
Sounds of power erupted in the two rooms
"uhhhh Dr. what's going on?" Rainbow Dash said wondering
"Nothing my dear, but be prepared to have a déjà moment" he replied with a chuckle
The room started to flash different colors and different backgrounds start to change from oceans, to forest, to cities, and she was even on the moon.
"I think I'm gonna be sick" Rainbow dash said wobbly back and forth
Suddenly a giant sphere lowered into the room. The training rooms' background kept changing but the sphere remained.
sevearl minutes passed
"NOW" he screamed
Eggman slammed on the on switch with his fist
The sphere lit up like a disco ball and was analyzing Rainbow Dash
She was to dizzy to noticed
"DREAM SEEKER ACTIVATE"
There was a bright light emitting from the Dream Seeker and it started to get brighter and brighter until no one could see
"YES!...YES!" Eggman said raising his fist
Then there was silence
Rainbow Dash was unconscious. She was lying in the on top of a grassy hill with mountains in the distance a river nearby and a town just down the hill
"uhhhh" Rainbow groaned "oh my head. I still don't see how this is going to make me stronger. Where am I"
She looked at her surroundings
"Wait a minute, is that PONYVILLE! I'm home, whooo hoooo"
She started to fly over town and through the clouds
"Oh man it feels good to be home,"
She was embracing the feeling of being somewhere she belongs
She glanced down at Ponyville and noticed that there wasn't anyone there
"huh?" she wondered
She landed next to a tree that had been hollowed out to form a library
"Where is everypony? Hello?...is anyone here"
She started walking
She flew up
"WHERE IS EVERYPONY"
She bowed her head She realized what happen
"I'm too late"
Seeing as in no one is around, I tear left here eye
She started walking to Fluttershys' cottage
She arrived moments later still bowing her head
Her head shot up
"Fluttershy?... You there"
"Rainbow dash it is you"
From the cottage a yellow Pegasus walked out, she had a pink mane with three butterflies on her flank
"Fluttershy you're alive"
They both gave each other a hug
"I'm so glad to see you"
"I'm glad to see you too, Rainbow wh-where did you go"
"I dunno, I was teleported somewhere that I still don't understand"
"I'm glad to see you're ok i *sniff*can't say the same about the others"
"What happen here?"
"I Can't remember. I'm so sorry, but all I can remember is waking up at my home after the fight"
"dangit I should have been here, I could've helped"
"Yeah you should've" Fluttershy snaped
The response froze Rainbow Dash
"You left us here to fend for ourselves; we could not have won without you but NOOOOoooo you had to play the hero again and rush in without thinking and look where that got you,huh, in another world while we all stayed her fighting for our lives. Why can't you think of anyone but yourself Rainbow Dash? Tell me why"
Clouds started to form
"I'm sorry Fluttershy"
"Oh no you're not, not yet"
The wind started to pick up blowing rapidly
Fluttershys' eyes started turning red and yellow with the pupils being different sizes
"This this doesn't make any sense" Rainbow dash said trying not to freak out
"Make sense?" Fluttershy said in her normal voice
She said in a deeper voice" What's the fun in making sense"
" No" Rainbow dash with fear in her voice
"Oh yes" she said
A mist covered Fluttershy
Rainbow prepared herself for she knew who it was
The mist faded and the being there was not Fluttershy but Discord
Rainbows' eyes winded
For she knew she was in for a fight
" HEY WRITER!" Discord yelled to the Writer
"What?" I said
"You've given everyone here a description why can't I get one"
"Because I need to get this story done so I can play Team Fortress 2"
"Your buddies on steam can wait. If you're going to use me in your fan-fic you need to give me a proper introduction"
"What if I don't?"
"Find, find I hate trolls"
"That's much better"
Rainbow Dash has no idea what is going on
"Well then she can go screw herself, now make with the introduction"
"In The Return of Harmony Part 1 and Part 2, Discord is shown to be a mischievous, manipulative trickster with little to no consideration towards his victims, who uses powerful magic, illusions, and hypnotism. He has a sense of showmanship and drama, preferring to be playful towards his victims before getting down to business, even mocking and bantering with Celestia and the six main ponies in Canterlot Tower. He is seen laughing at the expense of others and often manipulates the laws of reality for the sake of his own amusement, often at the cost of others. Among other things, Discord reverses the ponies' behavior, making Twilight Sparkle miserable and depressed, and generally causing ridiculous and horrific things to happen."
"You copying and pasting SoB"
"Hey you got your interdiction no shut up and get ready to fight in the next chapter "
"You know you should really name them"
"Shut up I know what I'm doing"
