Hello everybody, this is X the Reaper, bringing you all the last installment of RD's Five Nights at Freddy's! Endgame's here! The pieces come together, and Freddy Fazbear's Pizza sees its Fifth and final night. It probably won't be what any of you were expecting though.
Disclaimer: Please see Chapter 1.
Anyways, let's roll!
UPDATE: A friendly person by the name of Rock Raider recently wrote an alternate ending to this fic with my blessings, referred to, fitting enough as Rainbow Dash's Five Nights at Freddy's: Alternate Ending. I heavily recommend anyone who liked reading this story to check it out. But before that, please read on!
Freddy Fazbear's Pizza (5:00PM)
"Heeeeeeey everybody!" Freddy's recorded voice said out loud to the crowd gathered around the stage. "Welcome one and all to Freddy Fazbear's Pizza!"
"I'm Chica the Chicken!" Chica added in.
"Ha ha! And I'm Bonnie the Rabbit!" Bonnie finished.
"And you all know who I am!" Freddy said again, "What's my name?"
"FREDDY FAZBEAR!" a chorus of foal voices screamed in delight.
"Hee hee! That's right!"
"I'm never gonna get used to those voices," Applejack grumbled to herself from her position near the back with the rest of her friends save Pinkie. Currently they were all sitting at the table furthest from the stage but also closest to Pirate Cove, where Foxy remained hidden. "They just don't sound natural."
Slight grimaces from the others showed they shared her opinion. Rarity did try to lighten the mood a little though. "Well, the foals certainly seem to love them," she admitted as she watched the cheering foals, though she cringed slightly at the music they started playing, "Though I can't say the same for their playing ability."
"I don't think it's that bad," Pinkie suddenly said, appearing right next to the group, balancing two plates of pizza on either hoof and a bunch of cupcakes on her head. "I think it's actually kind of catching. It has that off-kilter feel that's just perfect for a haunted house!"
Pinkie certainly had spruced up the party. All around the party area were a bunch of multicolored banners and balloons that managed to brighten the gloom and dirtiness of the area, and there was a huge snack table stacked with all sorts of sugary desserts which the foals and even some of the parents were frequenting. All the guests and even some of the employees who had stopped working looked like they were having a great time.
Griff Schmidt himself had taken one look and looked like he was just told he had won a million bits, his mouth wide open but no words coming out. Finally, he had looked over at Pinkie and just said, "...Good work."
Pinkie had taken the comment in stride.
Fluttershy chewed on her slice of pizza slowly. "So, when will it be Foxy's turn?" she asked curiously, sparing a glance towards the curtained area. "Mr. Schmidt did say he was going to sing, wasn't he?"
Rainbow Dash waved a dismissive hoof as she devoured a cupcake. "Eh, he said that'll be later. I can't wait for it though."
"You really want to hear him sing that bad, Dash?" Twilight asked her. She was currently wearing a special coat that allowed her to disguise her wings, preferring to not let anypony around know that a Princess of Equestria was here. That might draw questions and stares, something she didn't want. Enough of that would have happened from her arrival in Baltimare alone. "I didn't think you cared for things like that."
Dash looked at her. "Yeah, not really, Twi, but he's my friend after all. I might as well hear him sing once."
Twilight and company had to admit it was weird to hear Rainbow Dash call a magic doll 'friend', but after hearing about how much he had helped her and the little meet-and-greet she had given them to Foxy, they couldn't say that it wasn't underserved.
Rainbow Dash stood in front of the curtains to Pirate Cove, her head turned towards the others to make sure they were paying attention.
"Alright then," she said satisfied, then turned towards the curtains. "Yo Foxy! I want you to meet a couple of friends of mine!"
With that, she grabbed the ropes and pulled back, revealing Foxy's form to the others. As one, all five moved back in surprise when they first saw his condition, then each reacted in various ways.
Applejack blinked. "Wow Dash... you weren't kidding when you said he was all beat-up."
Rarity tilted her head, as if to appraise him. "Well... he's certainly not in the best of conditions, but he does seem to have more of a friendly air about him than the others."
"He's actually kinda funny-looking!" Pinkie said, giggling slightly at his droopy eyes and jaw, then looked over at Dash with a bit of an apologetic expression. "And I mean in a good way."
"He seems... nicer," Fluttershy admitted, actually getting a little closer to him. "He doesn't look scary, at least."
Twilight keep glancing him over, especially taking note of where he was tore and she could see his endoskeleton. "He certainly seems more cheery, but can he even move right?"
"Of course I can, ye landlubber!"
Everypony save Dash moved back in surprise at Foxy's voice, and everypony yelped when his head suddenly swirled to look at them straight. "So, you all be Dashie's friends?"
There were two thuds. Foxy glanced down at the fainted forms of both Fluttershy and Rarity, while Pinkie suddenly whipped out some sort of black backpack with a stick of glowing orange light at the end and pointed it at him. Twilight and Applejack just stared incredulously at him, the former looking like she was about to have a panic attack of sorts on the illogicalities of what she was seeing and the latter because she was just confused.
Foxy looked back at Rainbow Dash. "They always like this?"
After that little scare though (and convincing Pinkie to put the so-called 'proton pack' down) the rest of the conversation had gone rather well, or as well as a conversation with a possessed damaged magic doll that wasn't trying to kill you can go. Foxy had more or less confirmed everything they had learned and was very eager for when they finally used the Rainbow Power to finish this.
"Finally, peace at last," he had said, taking on a far more somber and sad tone that reflected even in his actions. "Though it may be more than we deserve..."
Surprisingly enough, it had been Fluttershy who comforted the magic doll, wrapping her hooves around him and whispering comforting words, even shedding a few tears, though Twilight personally believed those were as much for the nightguards as it was for his sake.
"It's alright," she had said. "You were all scared and angry and did lots of bad things. That doesn't mean you don't deserve a chance."
Was it wrong though of Twilight to think that not everything Fluttershy had said was really that truthful?
"How long will this party last anyways?" Applejack asked. "I mean, not like I'm against the singing, but I'd like to hurry up and get it all over with."
Twilight blinked, being shaken out of her thoughts. "Um, well, I think he said in about two hours or so," she replied, recalling Griff's words while they had been setting things up. "He wanted to make this be a night the foals would remember after all."
Rainbow Dash glanced over towards Pirate Cove, her face shifting to a slightly melancholy expression as she did. "Yeah..."
It was not something that went unnoticed by Rarity. "Rainbow Dash dear, what's wrong?" she asked. "Not be rude, but you've seemed strangely... down recently."
Rainbow Dash glanced back towards her friends, blinking. "Down?" she asked, then gave a small laugh, though it seemed kinda nervous. "I'm not down! What makes you say that?"
"You've been making frowny faces for awhile," Pinkie replied, somehow having gotten rid of her plates of food and yet seemingly haven't moved from her spot once. "And you keep looking over to Foxy, even when we were setting up."
Dash looked between them all and just sighed. She probably could have just lied, but she figured that'd be wrong to her friends. "I just... I'm just kinda worried about what'll happen to Foxy when we fire off our whole rainbow laser. I mean, the last time we used it, we sent that Tirek guy to straight to Tartarus. I don't want to think that we'd-"
"Dash, that Tirek was a somepony that deserved to stay in Tartarus," Applejack interrupted. "That doesn't mean everything we shoot with it is gonna go there."
"I know that," Dash answered. "I just..."
"Dash," Twilight said, cutting her off. "Everything's going to be fine. Foxy will be alright."
The others gave various nods and signs of agreement. Dash looked between them and sighed.
"Maybe y'all are right," she admitted. "Maybe I'm just overthinking it."
The topic of conversation moved on to other things, but Dash couldn't help but occasionally glance over towards Pirate Cove.
"Don't worry about me, Dash," Foxy seemed to whisper from behind the curtain. "Whatever happens, know that I still think of ye as me friend."
"May I have everypony's attention?"
Griff Schmidt's voice rang out throughout the room, causing everypony's eyes, including the Mane Six's, toward's him. He stood there dressed in his usual clothing, though he had taken the occasion to comb his hair and looked rather respectable. The bags that were usually under his eyes were gone as well now, along with the lines on his face, allowing one to see he actually looked rather handsome when he cleaned up after himself.
"First, I would like thank all of you for coming to the last official day of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza's operation," he continued once he was certain he had everypony's attention. "For three generations this place has remained open, and it truly honors me that despite the hard times that have sprung up, you all still cared enough to come. I also wish to extend my deepest regards to my loyal staff, who stayed with us through thick and thin to the end."
He slowly walked across the room towards Pirate Cove, all eyes on him as he kept speaking.
"For the longest of times, I actually never truly cared for this place," he admitted. "I wanted to do something else with my life besides own a restaurant, even one with magic dolls in it. I wanted to help others, actually do something worthwhile with my life. Perhaps this closed door will open up new ones for me, but those are questions for another time."
He was near the stage now. "But concerning this closing chapter to the life of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and the end of another in the Schmidt legacy, I wanted to do something I dearly wished I had the chance to the entire time I was in charge.
He paused near the curtains. "For those of you unaware, behind this curtain lies the fourth magic doll of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, Foxy the Pirate Fox. Damaged because of an accident in the past and lack of bits in the budget, we were forced to put him here and only bring him out for special occasions." He looked back towards the audience. "But tonight, in order to close the last minutes of this restaurant's life in a fitting manner, he comes out of retirement to sing an old classic of his."
He gripped the rope in his hooves. "My faithful patrons and employees, allow me to introduce, for his one-hit wonder single, Foxy the Pirate!"
He pulled back, forcing the curtains open as the lights on the stage lit up, revealing Foxy the Pirate in all of his glory, all of his dents and tears apparent. A chorus of awed 'Ooohhhss' came from the foals staring at him. With a sudden jerk and whirl, Foxy looked down at the audience.
"Well, well, well, me heartys," Foxy greeted the audience. "Who's ready to hear the call of the pirate and sail the seas with Cap'n Foxy?"
A chorus of excited 'ME!'s came from the foals, even with a few adults pitching in.
"You go, Foxy!" Rainbow Dash cheered, not in the least bit embarrassed when her friends gave her a bemused expression.
Foxy seemed to wink towards her, then faced the foals. "Well then, all board, me little buccaneers!"
Suddenly, what sounded like a flute and horn started playing in the background. Foxy immediately started to sing in that swashbuckling voice of his.
Do what you want, 'cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!
Suddenly, drums and a guitar seemed to be added into the song, and all the foals found themselves singing along.
Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is all right with me,
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!
Foxy looked them all over with a wild grin. "You are a pirate!"
We've got us a map,
To lead us to a hidden box,
That's all locked up with locks!
"And buried deep away!
We'll dig up the box,
We know it's full of precious booty!
Burst open the locks!
And then we'll say hooray!"
Suddenly, Foxy whipped a cupcake with pink frosting and googly eyes out of nowhere from behind himself. A cupcake that Dash recognized as being identical to the one from the office. Before she could say anything to her friends though, it suddenly started singing in a young filly's voice.
Yar har, fiddle di dee!
If you love to sail the sea,
You are a pirate!
"...Didn't see that one coming," Applejack admitted.
Foxy then turned his head and placed his hook hand over his eyes as if searching for treasure. "Weigh anchor!"
"Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is all right with me!
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!
Yo Ho, ahoy and avast,
Dig in the dirt and dig in it real fast!
Hang the black flag
At the end of the mast!
You are a pirate!"
Foxy laughed aloud once more, and then looked at the cupcake in his grip.
We're sailing away,
Adventure awaits on every shore!
We set sail and explore
And run and jump all day.
We float on our boat
Until it's time to drop the anchor,
Then hang up our coats
Until we sail again!
The cupcake sang again.
Yar har, fiddle di dee!
If you love to sail the sea,
You are a pirate!
Foxy seemed to chuckle at the cupcake's line, then looked around quickly and suddenly pointed in a random direction. "Land ho, me hearties! Let's put some feeling into this one!"
This time, not only the foals, but even many of the adults found themselves singing along, whether by choice or because everyone else was doing it was irrelevant. Among their number, even the Mane Six found themselves singing along, if they weren't just humming (Fluttershy and Twilighht) or tapping (Rarity) to it.
Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright with me!
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!
"Yar har," Foxy laughed aloud. "Wind at your back, lads. Wherever you go!"
Blue sky above and blue ocean below,
You are a pirate!
"You are a pirate!" Foxy finished with a final laugh.
With that, the entire room was filled with applause and cheers, both from the foals and the adults who joined in on the song. The Mane Six found themselves clapping alongside the rest of the room as Foxy held the cupcake in front of his face and made a bow of sorts.
Rainbow Dash turned to the others. "So, what didja think?"
Applejack spoke for everyone. "He's definitely better."
7:30PM (After Party)
Griff waved to the last family that exited the pizzeria, watching as they walked away. Once they were out of sight, he turned back to walk to the security room, where the Mane Six were currently inside, though it was mostly Twilight ogling the multitude of cameras and the like, especially the phone.
"Well, everypony's gone now," he told them. "Feel free to use your whole 'Rainbow Power' whenever you feel like it."
"Shouldn't we wait?" Fluttershy asked. "I mean, the dolls won't start moving until after midnight."
"Maybe," Twilight admitted. "But for all we know, Freddy and the gang might try something before then. They know the jig is up and its the last night. They might try something funny."
"Then let's get started," Rainbow Dash told them all with a grim grin. "I'm not gonna tango with Freddy for another six hours, and you guys won't want to either."
As one they all started to file out of the office through the East Hall, Pinkie putting down the tablet she had been fiddling with, but accidentally leaving on a specific camera.
The one for the West Hall Corner, specifically.
The seven of them came to a stop within the party area, facing the three dolls on the show stage, who seemed to be staring right back at them.
"Alright girls," Twilight asked the others. "You all ready?"
Various nods and 'aye-aye' were exchanged.
Twilight nodded. "Then let's do th-"
Suddenly, the lights went out, casting everything into semi-darkness due to the setting sun. Everyone heard the sound of movement up on stage, coupled with what sounded like moaning.
Griff realized what was about to happen and suddenly raced forward, pulling out one of Rainbow Dash's nightsticks that he had taken from her when she was done with her last shift and jabbed forward at one of the moving shapes. The one he ended up hitting was Chica, whose purple eyes seemed to bulge as electricity sparked through her body.
"Hurry up and just fire the thing!" he yelled as he prepared to shock her again. A metal arm sudden wrapped around his waist, trying to pull him back. Without thinking, he quickly brought out the second one with his magic and shocked the offending limb, wincing as the charge went through himself. He did catch sight of the limb's color though. It was purple, just like Bonnie.
'But where's Freddy?' he wondered as he shocked both dolls again, grimacing when he realized he only had one charge left.
That question was being answered in the form of a brown paw trying to wrap around Rainbow Dash's neck. Of course, she was fast enough to avoid it, allowing Twilight to grab the bear in her telekinetic grip.
"Leave my friends alone!" she yelled, hurling him back towards the stage with a heave, where he collided with Bonnie and Chica but thankfully avoided Griff.
"Rainbow lasers of friendship anytime now!" Griff shouted as he ducked, watching as they slowly started to get back to their feet.
"Let's do it!" Rainbow Dash yelled.
As one, the six's bodies began to glow with a bright light, each one a different color that managed to illuminate the entire room. When they faded, the Mane Six stood once more in their 'Rainbow Power' forms.
"It's over, Freddy!" Twilight told the magic dolls as she and her friends bodies began to glow brighter and brighter. "Time to stop this!"
A golden discolored version of Freddy suddenly appeared in front of them, its mouth opened and eyeless sockets filled with a sort of red fire.
"No, GF," a familiar swashbuckling voice answered. "It is over."
Golden Freddy turned its gaze towards the source, Foxy the Pirate, who was still holding his cupcake but racing straight towards him. GF recoiled on instinct, but Foxy passed right on through him. The apparition quickly recovered and looked towards him.
"W...as tha...t supp...ose...d to ...do so...methi...ng?"
Foxy looked at him incredulously. "Of course not, GF. I thought ye were smarter than that."
GF's eyes widened (well, they would if he had them) and his eyebrows rose when he realized he had just fallen for the easiest trick in the book. By the time he turned around though, the Mane Six's light had grown almost blinding in intensity.
"FIRE!" Twilight yelled out.
"S...on... of ...a w-"
Golden Freddy's words were cut off in a roar, identical to the one that Dash had heard over the phone during Shep Book's last message, as the Rainbow Power engulfed the room and the entire pizzeria in a burst of multicolored light before dissolving into pure white light.
Foxy stared into it, feeling, for the first time in seemingly forever, at peace. He smiled as the light washed over him like a wave.
"Thank ye kindly, Rainbow Dash," he whispered as the light engulfed everything, including him. "Thank ye and yer friends for everything..."
Then he knew no more.
The Next Morning (Baltimare Cemetery)
The Mane Six and Griff Schimdt, clad in an overcoat, all stood in front of a big grey tombstone erected near the back of the Baltimare Cemetery. While lacking in terms of decorations, save for carved images of the four magic dolls: Freddy and Foxy near the top and Bonnie and Chica near the bottom, along with the cupcake overhead, the size of it managed to overcome those problems, inscribed with writing all throughout its surface. Up near the top, underneath the cupcake decoration, the inscription read:
In Honor of All Those Who Died During the Operation of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, Dedicated Especially to the Five Young Foals Who Died Early On and to the Last Nightguard: Shep Book.
The names were the list of nightguards who had died, along with the original founders' names and those of the five foals: Flashlight Spans, Emerald Doi, Shazzle Frazzle, Herksey Klon, and Shadow Dash.
At the very end, a final inscription said:
Paid For and Donated by Griff Schmidt, Third and Final Owner of FFP. "In the hearts and minds of their loved ones, these ponies will live on."
"I wish I could do more," Griff admitted to the group as he stared at the gravestone. "For all the poor souls buried under this tombstone, how I wish I could do more."
"You came, didn't you?" Dash asked rhetorically. "That's a start."
"More importantly, what do you plan to do now?" Twilight asked him. "The pizzeria's closed now, and the dolls..."
A moment of silence descended on the group. When the light of the Rainbow Power had ended, it had taken them all a moment to see what had happened to the magic dolls afterwards. When their eyesight had cleared, they had beheld an amazing sight.
Or rather, no sight.
The dolls were gone. Literally, they had seemingly vanished without a trace, not a clue as to where they had gone or even if they had been there in the first place. They had even searched the entire area, and found no sign of them.
None of them had any real idea as to what that meant, but if nothing else, it saved Griff the trouble of having to burn them up or have them scrapped.
Griff sighed. "Honestly, I'm thinking about coming clean with my past to the authorities. Maybe serve some time."
"Turning yourself in?" Rarity asked. "Why in Heaven's name would you do that?"
He shrugged. "I just want to feel like I'm actually being punished for everything that happened, honestly. Once I'm out though... maybe I'll start up an orphanage or something." A slight grin broke out. "Or maybe even become a world-traveler. I've always wanted to see what wonders are in Equestria with my own two eyes after all."
Griff turned around to look at the other six, but his eyes were Rainbow Dash. "Well, I can officially say that your debts have payed, Ms. Rainbow Dash," he began. "You don't owe me a cent anymore."
Dash rolled her eyes when he brought that up. "Will you stop that?" she told him. "It's over and done with."
Griff chuckled. "As you wish... but before I forget, let me give you something... if you'll accept it."
Rainbow Dash blinked. "What is it?"
He reached into his coat, then pulled out a small box with his magic, letting it over in front of her face. "That... is a secret."
She slowly took the box into her hooves. "Uh... thanks."
Griff nodded and then turned his attention to the other five, giving them a brief bow and smile. "Once again, thank you for your help, ladies. I truly am privileged to meet such mares as yourself... and in no way do I mean disrespect by that statement. You have my eternal gratitude."
With that, his horn suddenly flashed and he teleported away.
Everypony just stared at the spot he had stood for a moment, then Rarity spoke.
"Well, at least he was a true gentlecolt throughout." she respectfully noted.
The five of them then gathered around Rainbow Dash, who was now staring at the box.
"What do ya think it is, Rainbow?" Applejack asked her.
Dash shrugged. "I don't know." She then gave the box an experimental shake.
"Well, open it up silly!" Pinkie told her. "Let's see it!"
An unspoken feeling of agreement was among them. Dash tore open the top and slowly reached inside, grasping whatever was inside.
"It feels kind of round," she admitted, then pulled it out.
Everypony blinked, but it was Twilight who spoke. "Isn't that...?"
It was the cupcake Foxy had held during his last song, googling eyes and all. It seemed to gaze forlornly at them all, and all of them stared back, though none as hard as Rainbow Dash.
She thought back to all of their talks and how he kept helping her, even to the end. Her only true companion in those hours.
Despite herself, Dash felt a smile twitch across her face.
"Um, Rainbow Dash... you're crying."
Rainbow Dash blinked at Fluttershy's words, quickly bringing a hoof to her face and coming away with wet spots.
"You alright, sugarcube?" Applejack asked her, the others flashing her looks of concern.
Dash quickly shook her head, putting on a smile. "Of course! I'm fine, totally fine! ...Just some dust is all."
The five didn't look they bought it for a blind second, but they didn't push the issue, something she was grateful for. Instead, Twilight put a hoof on her shoulder.
"Let's go home, Rainbow."
Dash looked down at the cupcake in her grip, then put it back in the box. She sniffed for a moment.
And with that, the six of them walked away respectfully, not once looking back.
However, even if they had, they wouldn't have been able to see the five foals gathered around the tombstone: Two earth ponies: Brown and yellow respectively, Two unicorns: Purple and gold respectively, and one red pegasus, all staring after them.
Just before they disappeared though, even from the senses of the truly mystically tuned, the red one spoke in a vaguely pirate-like accent.
"Thanks for everything Rainbow Dash."
And with that, this little adventure comes to a close.
Sorry for anyone hoping for a more climactic final night. I honestly couldn't see this as going any other way. The Mane Six sure as heck weren't just gonna wait for midnight and let the dolls have a chance, so they decided to go ahead and do their whole exorcism when everypony had left.
Of course, Golden Freddy wasn't just gonna let things end without a fight, so he cut the power to let Freddy, Bonnie and Chica get in on the action. But remember people, Griff still had shock sticks, and old Unicorn!Twilight could levitate a sleeping Ursa Minor, so Alicorn!Twilight wouldn't have any problem grabbing and throwing Freddy with telekinesis, or probably all three of them at once if she had to.
And of course, Foxy wasn't gonna let them get hurt. And again, the Mane Six took down GodMode!Tirek with their Rainbow Power attack, so really this fight was one-sided and lost for Freddy and company the moment the ponies managed to transform. Still, they at least tried, for all the good it did them.
Anyways, that's it for this story. I'm not writing a sequel for when Five Nights at Freddy's 2 comes out. Though who knows, maybe I inspired others to write their own crossovers with FNaF, it's certainly the kind of story that is open to plenty of interpretations.
Anyways, I hoped you all enjoyed this chapter! From here on out, it's me working on my other still-current works!
