A/N: I thought of this last night and I just had to write it. No, I don't care that I already have nine other fics in progress.


"Well, Miss Sparkle?"

This was the most important moment of Twilight Sparkle's life.

Her parents had decided to enroll her in Princess Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns, and whether or not she was allowed in depended on the entrance exam she was currently taking. She was tasked with hatching a dragon egg, but so far she hadn't been very successful.

One of the examiners coughed.

Twilight groaned.

Another examiner yawned.

"We don't have all day." One of them said.

Twilight made one final effort before lowering her head in shame. "I'm sorry I wasted your time..."

Just then, a powerful explosion of color occurred outside the window, which had a very unexpected effect on Twilight Sparkle.

Not only did she hatch the egg, but she also managed somehow to raise the examiners into the air, turned her parents into plants, and turned the dragon she had just hatched into a fully grown dragon.

"Twilight Sparkle."

With those two words, everything in the room was reverted back to normal as suddenly as it had changed.

"Oh, I'm so sorry... I didn't mean..." Twilight stopped as soon as her eyes met with those of Princess Celestia.

"You have a very special gift." The princess said. "I don't think I've ever come across a unicorn with your raw abilities. But you need to learn to tame these abilities through focused study."

"Tame them?" A voice called from across the hallway. "Oh, where's the fun in that? With abilities like those, she'd be a perfect student at my school!"

Twilight's stomach tightened as she recognized the voice. She let out a small gasp as Prince Discord teleported into the room, and she quickly found herself kneeling before him, not out of respect but out of fear.

"Do you really need another student, dear?" Celestia rolled her eyes. "You're already teaching our descendants, and this filly's brother, and you've talked more of my sister's students into jumping ship than even I can remember!"

Discord waved his hand dismissively. "Oh, it's not like she ever complained..." He opened a small portal, on the other side of which was the princess in question. "Isn't that right, Luna?"

Luna grunted with frustration as her horn glowed brightly. "If you don't mind, I'm in the middle of something right now!"

Discord closed the portal. "You see? So how about it, honey?" He stroked Celestia's chin suggestively. "It's not like you need any more namby-pamby goody-two-shoes students. Especially ones with as much chaotic potential as her!"

"Well..." Celestia smirked. "When you think about it, it's not really my decision." She turned her head in Twilight's direction. "Twilight Sparkle, who do you want to study under?" She hastily turned towards Discord. "No mind-control!"

Twilight alternated glances between the two of them and opened her mouth, but quickly found herself unable to answer verbally. So instead, she decided to walk over to Celestia, looking up at her and smiling.

Celestia smirked at Discord, who muttered something under his breath that sounded suspiciously like 'buy some apples'.


A/N: If I hadn't already written The End of Boredom, then this would probably be my Magnum-Opus.
