Chapter 5: Boast Busters
IT was just a normal day in Ponyville. The sun was shinning and the birds were singing.
And a wagon showed up… a wagon that had a unicorn. Rumors spread through out the town about the wagon.
The entire town came to watch this skeptical, a blue pony with a purple hat and cape stepped onto the tag that opened up form the wagon. Fireworks sparked though out it.
"Come on! Come all for the Great and Powerful Trixie!" called out the pony.
"What's this supposed to be?" asked Carrot Top to no one.
"Watch in awe as the Great and Powerful Trixie performs the most spectacular feats of magic ever witnessed by pony eyes!" boated the blue pony.
"You could be an earth pony for all we know!" shouted Carrot Top.
Trixie rolled her eyes then continued the show with the fire works going on around her while taking off her hat showing she indeed a unicorn.
"My, my, my what boasting." Said Rarity.
"So what if this pony is the most powerful in all of Equestria. You just don't go around boasting around if you're the best to compete stingers." Said Everlasting.
Spike was going to say something about Twilight have having magic skills, but got distracted by Rarity.
"You okay Spike?" asked Dinky.
"Mustache…" mumbled Spike.
"Mommy what's wrong with Spike." Said Dinky.
"It's okay muffin, he just act like that around Rarity." Said Derpy.
"There's nothing wrong with being talented is there." Said Twilight.
"Nothing wrong with that expect when Somepony is going around like a school filly showing off fancy ribbons." Said Applejack.
"Just be becomes someone has lots of magic dose not make you better than the rest of us." Said Rarity.
"Especially when you got me around being better than the rest of us" said Rainbow Dash who began to laugh.
Everyone within hearing distance roiled their eyes.
"I mean magic schmagic… boo!" yelled Rainbow Dash.
"Too late for that." Said Carrot Top.
"Do I hear neigh-sayers in the audience." Said Trixie.
"That was a terrible pun." Said Carrot Top.
"Will you come up on stage then, after all anything you can do I can do better." Said Trixie.
"You can grow carrots! I thought weren't an earth pony!" said Carrot Top.
Trixie groaned at that one.
"Wow you're pretty good at being heckler." Said Spike.
"I'm a natural snaker is all." Said Carrot Top with a shrug.
"Besides Twilight is…" said Spike but Twilight magically shut up him.
"Please don't spike." Whispered Twilight.
"Don't what?" asked Spike.
"I don't want to show off." Said Twilight, "Look how everyone is reacting to her."
"I don't think you're that magical." Said Everlasting adjusting her glasses.
"You don't believe me." Said Trixie who produced a light show, "Why, only the Great and Powerful Trixie has magic strong enough to vanquish the dreaded Ursa Major!
"I never heard of any like that happened." Muttered Carrot Top.
"Me neither." Said Pinkie.
"You think something like that would make national news." Said Everlasting.
"Also laser shows do not prove anything." Said Carrot Top.
Trixie glared at Carrot Top.
However two young colts Snips and Snails bought it, they weren't very bright however.
"She's a big liar!" whined Dinky, "Don't believe her!"
"But the light show!" said Snips.
Dinky rolled her eyes at the two, despite being so young she did spend a lot of time with Carrot Top.
"Yeah! And besides, Twilight…" said Spike but Twilight shushed him.
"Quiet spike, I don't want to be a show off." Whispered Twilight.
"But showing her up won't make you one." Whispered Spike.
"I challenge all of Ponyville anything you can do I can do better! Any takers or Trixie destined be the greatest Equine who ever lived."
Gilda who was in the audience glared at the stage and left. This show wasn't' for her.
"Please Twilight, do it." Whispered Spike.
"No…" mumbled Twilight.
"How about you." Said Trixie.
Twilight gulped, however Trixie meant Applejack.
"That's it! I can't stand this any more!" yelled Applejack.
She got on stage to the cheers of many ponies.
"Can you're magic do this!" said Applejack.
She began to perform a rather amount with a lasso that was very impressive.
"Stop that one Missy." Said Applejack.
"Oh ye of little talent." Said Trixie.
She used her magic to make the rope come alive and tie Applejack up.
This got laughter and cheers.
"Hey!" yelled Rainbow Dash going on stage, "There's no need to go strutting around and showing off like that!"
"Oh?" responded Trixie.
"Because that's my job." said Rainbow Dash who quickly looked at Carrot Top, "And don't you dare point out that my real job is working for weather."
"Oh…" sighed Carrot Top.
Rainbow Dash performed a rather interesting stunt that created a rainbow when she landed.
"And that's why they call me "Rainbow" and "Dash"." Said Rainbow Dash.
Trixie how used the rainbow she created, to spin Rainbow Dash off stage.
"Oh come on!" jeered Spike, "What we need is a real unicorn!"
"All you're doing is turning their things against them, you're not proving anything about doing anything better!" called out Carrot Top.
"Fine then, I'll prove I'm better than them if a unicorn comes on stage!" said Trixie.
"DID SOMEPONY CALL FOR A UNICORN!" shouted Everlasting coming on stage with Yuki-Chan and five logs.
Trixie stared at her, "Yes…" she responded.
"Sorry for that entrance, just something on my bucket list." Said Everlasting.
She took out a list that and checked off "Do a ""Did somepony call for a" Entrance".
"Show us all what the Great and Power Trixie could do better." Said Trixie.
Everlasting launched all five logs into the air with magic, and with her hooves wielded Yuki-Chan and sliced all of them, the most impressive was when she cut the last log which didn't look like it was cut, until she sheathed Yuki-Chan.
This earned a wild applause from the audience.
"Fine, I'll prove that I'm better than you." Said Trixie.
Everlasting held out of Yuki-Chan and Trixie grabbed it with magic, she then held the sword wit magic.
"No!" said Everlasting, "Two things, in order to prove yourself better, you have to use yours hooves and the other thing, be careful with magic. I don't want you breaking or bending her."
Trixie stared at Everlasting, then bent the sword and threw it into the audience.
"Yuki-Chan no!" cried Everlasting.
"That was anti-climatic." Said Carrot Top.
"Whatever! Does anypony else want to prove themselves?" asked Trixie.
"I will!" said Derpy.
"Very well." Said Trixie.
"It's time for me to do my thing!" said Derpy, she put on a pair of sunglasses and took out a roll of bubble wrap.
"All right! Go mommy!" cheered Dinky.
"What is she doing?" asked Spike.
"Popping bubble wrap in the most awesome way possible!" said Everlasting she look at Twilight, "Um… can you."
Twilight rolled her eyes and perfectly straighten Yuki-Chan.
That was when Derpy rolled the bubble wrap onto the stage.
"Who has a song request!" said Derpy.
"My Little Pony!" called out a random mare from the audience.
Derpy began to pop the bubbles, to the extent it sounded like a song.
Trixie narrowed her eyes, when the song was done, she wrapped Derpy in the bubble wrap and then magically popped the reaming bubbles.
"So I take you lack musical talent?" asked Carrot Top.
"Will be quiet?" asked Trixie, "Is there anyone who dares to compete with The Great Powerful Trixie?"
"Oh! Oh! Pick me! Pick me!" yelled Pinkie.
"You…" said Trixie who had a bad feeling about her.
Pinkie jumped on stage, and produced a turntable and the town's best DJ Vinyl Scratch from who knows.
The music began top play and the accidence began to dance.
Not only that but confetti came from nowhere.
Trixie was deeply confused by what was going on.
So she just turned the music off.
"What was that?" asked Trixie.
"A party!" said Pinkie.
"So you just did a spontaneous party?" asked Trixie.
"That's right." Said Pinkie with a big smile.
"Please get off the stage." Said Trixie who was honestly confused by what happened.
"Okey Dokey Loki!"
"That's okay." Said Carrot Top, "Pinkie has the effect on everypony."
"Why don't you come on stage." Said Trixie.
"Do you have a copy of Enganches: The Hooves of Fate?" asked Carrot Top.
"No…" said Trixie, "Why would The Great and Powerful Trixie have that stupid movie?"
"Then I'm not coming on stage." Said Carrot Top.
"The Great and Powerful Trixie is going to ignore you now." Said Trixie.
"She didn't get it." Said Everlasting.
"No she did not." Said Carrot Top.
The two high hoofed.
"Is there anypony who wants to go on stage?" said Trixie.
"Maybe another unicorn." Said Spike.
"Yes, Somepony who won't get upset about her sword getting bent." Said Carrot Top.
"How was I supposed to know she would to that to poor Yuki-Chan." Said Everlasting.
Carrot Top rolled her eyes…
"Enough. Enough, all of you. I take your hint, but Rarity is above such nonsense. They may behave like ruffians, but Rarity conducts herself with beauty and grace." Said Rarity.
"Please tell me you're mocking her." Said Carrot Top.
"Fine. I'll stop." Muttered Rarity.
Rarity began to make clothes and fashion on stage with such grace and beauty. However Trixie had a plan. She messed up Rarity's hair!
Yes, that's just about it…
She turned it green and made it beehive shaped.
Rarity ran off stage.
"I think I'm going to comfort her." Said Carrot Top chasing after her.
Twilight looked at Applejack.
"That exact same shade." Whispered Applejack.
"Well Twilight, guess it's up to you. Come on, show her what you're made of." Aid Spike.
"What do you mean? I'm nothing special." Said Twilight.
Twilight began to make excuses then ran off.
"Ha! Once again, the Great and Powerful Trixie has proven herself to be the most amazing unicorn in all of Equestria. Huh, was there ever any doubt?" boasted Trixie.
Since Carrot Top had left to comfort Rarity and her newly green mane, the show ended.
And because of that Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Everlasting, Derpy, Pinkie, Fluttershy and Dinky all met up at Sugar Cub Comer.
"I don't get it." Said Derpy, "Why didn't Twilight go on stage?"
"I haven't gotten the faintest." Said Applejack.
"She would have curb stomped Trixie." Said Everlasting, "I mean come she's the student of Princess Celestia, everyone in town knows that."
"She must have thought that if she did that she would be on the same level as Trixie." Whispered Fluttershy.
"Me going on up and stage finding a way to make it all about me and how Soul of Dragon won many awards would have been the same level as Trixie, Twilight doing her thing wouldn't have been."
"I don't think she's going to skip town any time soon." Said Rainbow Dash.
"Yeah it's not like Snip and Snails are going to try to prove she the best by being an Ursa Major into town." Said Pinkie.
There was an awkward silence.
"Mommy are they that dumb?" asked Dinky.
"I doubt it my little muffin." Said Derpy.
Later that night…
An Ursa Major was rampaging though the town and it was Snips and Snails fault.
"Ursaru! Ursaru! Destroying the town of Ponyville!" sang Everlasting as she watched.
"That's not doing anything…" muttered Carrot Top.
"I know… but I also know that Yuki-Chan can't stand up to that." Said Everlasting.
"Mommy… so are Snips and Snails that dumb?" asked Dinky.
"I'm afraid so." Sighed Derpy.
They watched as Trixie tried to vanquish it, she ended up confessing that she was nothing but a fraud.
"Okay, so the only pony that claimed to defeated one had no idea how do defeat one." Muttered Carrot Top.
"Are we doomed?" asked Pinkie.
"We're doomed." Said Carrot Top.
"Everypony panic!" yelled Pinkie.
Thankfully no paid attention to her but eventually Twilight showed up. She managed to vanquish by using all the magic she could muster to hold it in the air, use plants to sing it sleep with a lullaby, turn the town's water tower into a bottle, filled it with milk and sent it back into the Everfree Forest,
The entire town cheered.
"Unbelievable!" cheered Rainbow Dash.
"That was amazing!" cheered Spike.
"Heavens to Betsy! We knew you had ability, but not that much!" said Applejack.
"I'm sorry. Please, please don't hate me." Said Twilight.
"Hate you?" asked all of her friends.
"Why, whatever do you mean, darling?" asked Rarity.
"Well, I know how much you all hated Trixie showing off with her magic tricks, and I just thought." Said Twilight.
"Twilight, you're the student of Princess Celestia, if you didn't have that skill then I would question what you have been doing with your schooling." Said Carrot Top.
"What she was doing was her being a loud mouth." Said Rainbow Dash.
"That's right!" said Everlasting, "If went to her level I would have did a puppet show with ever single award I won for Alicorn's Heart and Soul of a Dragon."
"What?" asked Twilight.
"Come on we're proud to your friend." Said Derpy.
"And even prouder for defeating that Ursa Major!" said Rainbow Dash.
"That… that wasn't an Ursa Major." Said Twilight, "It was an Ursa Minor. A baby."
"That was a baby!" yelled Trixie.
Twilight began to explain that she began to study Ursas because of Trixie's story and went on to explain that it was only cranky because someone disturbed it's nap.
"Wait! If that was a baby! Then what's the Ursa Major like." Said Spike.
"You don't want to know." Said Twilight.
"You might have defeated and Ursa Minor! But you'll never have the show stopping ability of the Great and Powerful Trixie!"
Trixie created a cloud of smoke and than ran away.
Rainbow Dash tried to chaise after her.
"Don't." said Twilight.
"What? Why?" asked Rainbow Dash.
"Because we don't want a repeat of the Gilda incident." Said Everlasting.
"You're the one caused it." Muttered Rainbow Dash.
"So what do we do with these two." Said Derpy staring at the tow trouble making unicorns.
"Oh come on, we just wanted to see some awesome magic." Said Snails.
"And that was some awesome magic!" said Snips.
"We deserve whatever punishment you give us." Said Snails.
"I'm going to talk to your parents about this." Said Derpy.
"Also you need to clean up the mess the Ursa Made." Said Twilight, "And what do you think Spike should I give them 25?"
"Can I get on it." Said Spike.
Twilight nodded and she magically gave them all mustaches.
"Twilight…" said Derpy, "That's not a punishment."
And so Twilight learned the lesson about boasting and doing magic. After all she was the student of Princess Celestia and if she can show off her magic in certain ways then she could.
Also after Derpy talked to the boys parents both got grounded for two weeks and they weren't allowed to keep the mustaches.
