Tale of violence and friendship
Chapter 1: spaaaaaaace!
It was an exciting day in ponyville. A pony had built himself a rocket to visit the moon without magic. The fields beside ponyville were perfect for the launch. There was a big celebration in honor of the new achievement, Pony's from all over Equestria had come to see this great event. Even princess Celestia and Princess Luna had visited to see the astropony achieve this great feat. Amidst the crowd Twilight sparkle was searching for somepony. "Who are ya looking for twilight?" Said Applejack who caught Twilight looking in the strangest of places. "Oh hey Applejack. I was looking for Pinkie Pie." said Twilight. Applejack looked confused "Pinkie Pie? It can't be that hard to find her. Why I bet she's the center of the party as usual." Twilight looked worried "That's just it. She's nowhere to be seen." "Strange usually she's everywhere at once." Applejack responded "Let's try and find Rainbow Dash. Maybe Pinkie's hanging around her." "Great idea" said Twilight "I think she's trying to impress the wonderbolts. They're having a practice near carrousel boutique." On their way there Applejack asked Twilight "Why's this rocket so impressive? I mean, we got Pegasus ponies. Heck, we all know princess Luna was imprisoned in the moon." "I know" said Twilight "But the pony going is an earth pony, even the wonderbolts can't fly to space and Princess Luna was magically imprisoned in the moon. The pony going is doing this without powerful magic or wings." As they walked past all the celebrating they looked for Pinkie but also for the many activities they wanted to do after they were done looking for Pinkie. Many entertainers and sales ponies had come to ponyville. The town was crowded like never before. "Weren't you selling apple pies?" Twilight asked. "Yeah but its Big Mac's turn to watch the stand. Besides the entire family is here to help out too."
As they approach the boutique, they see a rainbow and fire line flashing over them. Dash had convinced spitfire to race her. The race was attracting quite a crowd for a friendly match. As Dash soared past some roofs she thought to herself "Now this is what I call hanging out." The race would end at the boutique where the other wonderbolts where waiting. "I don't see Pinkie anywhere" said Applejack "But I think Rainbow Dash will know. Seeing as she probably flew all over ponyville by now."
While they wait for Rainbow Dash to finish the race, they visited Rarity who just closed her shop. Twilight looked confused "Rarity? Aren't you going to take orders for your boutique from all the ponies?" Rarity smiled and said "Oh but I have. There were a lot of pony's here this morning. With the orders I have now I'll be busy for months. But enough about the boutique. What brings you here?" Twilight told Rarity about pinkie's surprising absence. Rarity asked "Have you tried sugarcube corner?" "Yes" Twilight responded "and Mr. and Mrs. Cake haven't seen her since she ran out this morning."
Meanwhile Rainbow Dash and Spitfire finished their race. "A tie" said Spitfire. "A tie? I know I can beat you!" yelled dash joyfully while she set up to start another race "Second try?" "Hold on now we raced all across this place. I know you're exhausted and so am I." said spitfire "We'll have another race some other time. Let's enjoy the party for now" and she left with the other wonderbolts. Applejack popped up behind Dash and said "You know she's right. You're breathing harder that winona after a hard day's work." "Oh yeah? Well…I still could've beaten her" said Dash annoyed. Twilight jumped in "We know you could but while you were flying, did you spot Pinkie anywhere?" Rainbow Dash thought for a second and said "I think I saw her at Fluttershy's home." "What is she doing there? Fluttershy's place is the only quiet place left in town. There's no party there." Said Twilight "Beats me." said Rainbow Dash. "Let's see if she's still there then we can ask her." she said as she flies of since now she's curious as to what Pinkie is up to. As applejack and Twilight follow Rarity joins the group saying "I'd like to know what that pony is up to"
At Fluttershy's home, Fluttershy and Spike are helping the animals relax. "Thank you again for helping. But wouldn't you like to enjoy the party" Said Fluttershy to spike. "Ah it's nothing and besides with the crowd out there, I've been knocked around more than a beach ball. And unlike a beach ball I can feel pain|.|" Said spike as he tries to get some squirrels off his head "Tough it seems every animal from around ponyville is here too." Immediately after he said that another 20 squirrels jump on his head causing him to fall. Fluttershy helped Spike get the squirrels off him as she said "they came here for the silence." "I know and I have to agree." Sais Spike just then Twilight and the other pony's arrived. "I see Spike is still trying to work with animals." said Twilight. Fluttershy responded "Oh he's getting better at it. The animals seem to like him." As Spike dizzily tries to get up he immediately get's pounced by a group of bunny's. Twilight and the others snickered at this sight then Twilight remembered the reason they we're here and said "Anyway was Pinkie Pie here a few minutes ago?" "Why yes" Fluttershy responded "she was here asking for more party materials like confetti and balloons." This confused Twilight "But everything has been settled already for this festival. There's no need for more party materials." "This is Pinkie we are talking about," said Dash "it's never enough party for her." Spike jumped back up from under the many animals and stated "I'm pretty sure she'll pop out any moment. Let's just go enjoy the celebration again and I'm sure we'll find her eventually." Twilight thinks for a second and responds "You're probably right|,| I'm worrying too much" Applejack made a little jump and joyfully said "Then we can all go together. You're coming too right Fluttershy?" Flutteshy hesitates to respond but Spike cuts in as he jumps on Twilights back saying "Sure she will. It's not like we will be gone for long." This results in Fluttershy letting out a near silent "ok".
It was as if all of equestria had come to ponyville. The streets where full of different colored pony's. Most of them enjoying the festivities and waiting for the moment of the launch. Some pony's had come to place up small shops. There were a few pony's going around giving flyers with info about the locations of several special performances and about the rocket. Twilight intrigued by this new technology, so she got one and was glued to it. The note described some minor things like how the engines use crystals and were powerful enough to get there in seconds. Also noted was a part where Luna would hold the moon in its course, meaning the rocket would go in a straight line. As the ponies walk past many stands, they are amazed with some of the things they never even heard about. They stopped to look into some very durable backpacks. Applejack decided to buy one since it could be useful on the applefarm. Rarity found a new set of high quality instruments for sewing. Applejack had agreed to carry everything they bought with her. After looking around the stands they decided to try and talk to Princess Celestia. She was holding audiences in wait for the moment of launch. Twilight and her friends decided to go visit her as well but the line was in wait was way too long. "This reminds me a lot of the gala." said twilight disappointed. Rarity noticed her disappointment and said "We should just go and have fun instead of waiting in line here. I'm sure Princess Celestia will have time to talk to her faithful student after the rocket has launched." "I guess your right." said Twilight "Let's go take a look at the rocket."
The giant spacecraft was built well by several pony's. There was a Royal Guard at the door. Strangely there was a present box next to the guard. Rainbow Dash couldn't help herself and asked the guard "What's with the gift?" The guard was less experienced than the usual royal guards. He dropped his posture "It's for the pony that's going to pilot the rocket. A gift from Princess Celestia" he replied gleefully. Then he realized he failed to keep up his posture. Rainbow Dash was happy "Ha! I knew someone would not be able to keep that statue act up." "Yeah yeah, just don't go throwing the news around." Said the guard annoyed. When the guard saw twilight he cheered up a bit and asked her "Miss Sparkle can you do me a favor?" "How can I help?" asked Twilight. "Well your pink friend is in the rocket preparing a surprise for the astropony by request of Princess Celestia. She forgot to take this gift along but I can't leave my post." "What's in there anyway?" applejack asked. The guard replied "Well it's a magical orb that will always point to Canterlot. She's pretty sure he won't need it but you can never be too safe. Can you bring it to your friend?" Twilight nodded "Sure I will. I kinda wanted to see how it looks from the inside. Mind if my friends come too?" "As long as they don't touch anything." said the guard. Though that got the other pony's thinking pinkie was more of a pony to do something like that. Spike jumped off Twilights back and said proudly "If we can get this close I want to take a closer look at those thrusters since I heard they where based off me." Twilight giggled and said "They are based on adult dragons silly." Spike replied "I still want to see it closely, it sounds awesome." Spike ran towards the underpass built so the flames won't destroy much during launch. Twilight and her friends entered the rocket as the guard opened. The steel door for them and closed it behind them to prevent anyone from sneaking in. When they reached the main chamber of the rocket they saw Pinkie Pie on a stool trying to hang up a big banner above the front window that said: come home safely. Fluttershy flew up to pinkie and asked her softly "Do you need any help with that?" Pinkie pie responded "Nope. I can handle it Fluttershy." After a small silence Pinkie realized her friends weren't supposed to be in the rocket and lost her balance. But Dash was already there to keep her from falling. "guys you're not supposed to be in here" said Pinkie to which Twilight explains how the guard asked them to bring the gift from Celestia. "Oh silly me" said Pinkie cheerfully "How could I forget the most important part of this surprise" she took the present and placed it in a compartment under the control panel. Pinkie explained how the compartment would open when the astropony enters the main chamber.
Meanwhile outside Snips and Snails had snuck onto the main podium. "See I told you I'd get us on stage" announced Snips proudly to his friend. "Great job" said Snails "umm…. Now what?" Snips hadn't really thought about why he wanted to be on stage in the first place. But not much time was there to think about it as they had to hide under the stage from the guards passing by. Snails used his horn to make some light under the dark stage. "hey look" said Snails as he pointed to a strange device with only one button. "What do you think it is?" asked Snails. " Snips stuck his chin up as if he was a genius and announced "Why that's the launch button" he said proudly "Princess Celestia will press it when they launch the rocket" Snails who is slow of understanding still looked confused. Snips got a bit annoyed by his look and yelled "she'll press it like this!" he pressed the button to show him.
In the rocket Rarity had noticed the floor was made out of pillows "How royal these Pillowed floors are. But they would've looked better in red." "I don't think they are for fashion or comfort Rarity" just as Twilight said that the entire place started to shake and it was getting harder for the pony's to stand up. In a few minutes they were all pressed against the soft floor.
After what seemed like hours the pony's could get back up only now that was a lot easier. "what's going on?" asked rainbow Dash. Twilight looked out the window and slowly said "I fear we were accidently launched" Rarity panicked "can't you turn this thing around?" twilight looked sad "I don't know how and even if I did know how to turn this thing I still don't know how to land it." Then she thought of Spike "I hope Spike's ok, he was under the rocket when this thing went off."
Back in Equestria spike was ok but a lot of pony's were panicking. "Being fireproof saved me again." Said spike. Then he looked up to see the vanishing smoke trail of the rocket. Spike shouted out "Oh no! Twilight and the others. Were they still on board?" The guard who was guarding the main door was in quite a shock and a bit gray from the smoke he gathered himself and looked into the exhaust pit where he saw spike trying to get out. He swiftly flew down and brought him out of the pit. Spike was still panicking "Twilight? Rainbow Dash? AJ? Rarity? Pinkie? Fluttershy? Did any of them got out before that thing went off?" the guard shook his head. Spike rushed to Princess Celestia hoping she could get them back. After Spike brought her the news. Celestia looked up and used all her powers to try and find the pony's that have been blasted off. Then she sadly looked down and said "This is terrible they have already gotten too far off." "Already?" said one of the ponies who worked on the rocket "I knew giving it 4 of those dragon like engines was too much. Why if the moon was in its correct place they would've smashed into it." Princess Celestia was having a hard time keeping her patience. Something like this had never happened before. She calmly said "It doesn't matter what would've happened. We need to find a way to get those pony's back safely" She looked up into the sky hoping they would land in a safe place.
