The door to the Ponyville opens before you can knock. Spike has one claw held to his lips in a hushing motion, till he sees the figure on your back. His arm drops to his side as he looks, dumb struck at you and your captive.

From behind you somepony shouts in alarm, which draws the attention of Twilight. "Oh Zack! What are you doing back so..." Her voice trails off as she also notices the pony on your back.

The tied up Shadow Bolt, still mostly blind rises his head and looks around. "Hello? Is somepony there? If there is somepony there, is there any chance that they would believe that I was just at a costume party and that I am being ponynapped? Because if there is, then that's what happened!"

Twilight looks at you, a look of shook clear on her face. "Zack? What's going on? Who is that and why is he dressed like Shadow Bolt?"

{Quick note hear, this Shadow Bolt has a defined face and personality, so id you want to speak to him or remove his mask that's fine, but if you try and give him an appearance or have him saying things like "DEATH TO THE SUN TYRANT!" I am going to veto thous parts. Fair warning. Similarly for Spike as he has a part to play this story and I kinda need to dictate what he says, thinks and feels. Twilight is fair game thou. Oh, also this is all meta Knowledge, meaning that you know this as a player, but your character dose not and if you try and go "Hay Spike, for no in story reason I think that you are going to do or say something plot relevant! Now spit it out or I am going to pulling out the tiny hammers!" I will also veto that as well.}

The last thing you hear before blacking out is the sound of the unfortunate shadow bolt falling face first into the floor, cushion your fall.

* * *

Zack Marcus arise! A grate evil stirs in the hart of our land! You must not allow-!

* * *


"And then he just collapsed."

You hear Twilight's voice as the world starts to come back into focus. The words from your dream still echo inside your head. The voice Sounded just like the one you heard in that strange void for the 'letter'.

"Did ya send a letter to the Princess, Twi?" A less familiar voice asks.

"Spike sent a letter just before we went to get you, Rarity and Pinkie." Twilight's voice is reassuring, but you can hear something dispirit in it. "I am sure she will be here any minute..." You can hear her pacing. "Are you sure you don't know where Rainbow Dash or Fluttershy are?"

The others answers must have been none verbal for the most part because the only answer you hear is, "Nope, but I am sure whatever there doing is a super-duper impotent pegasus thing!"

"Why do you assume it a pegasus thing?" A rather cultured voice asks.

"Because all pegasus's flow away 23 minutes ago." The chipper pony response quickly.

Vision returning you can see Twilight standing next to a white unicorn. across from them stand an orange and a Pink earth pony. Spike is no where to be seen, but the shadow bolt can be seen, securely tied up to a writing desk.

Spike opens the door to revile a gray pegasus. She is breathing heavily and blond mane is a disheveled mess. Clenched in her teeth is a hastily tied scroll of parchment. She drops the scroll into Spikes claw then stages against the door frame, clearly exhausted. The white unicorn with the stylishly curled, purple mane and the Pink earth pony rush to the pegasus meres aid as Twilight and the second earth pony seem to be more interested in Spike, who has gone very pale and begun to shiver.

"Spike, whats wrong?" Twilight inquires urgently.

"Cloudsdale..." Spike starts, in a voice so filled with shocked disbelief that even the two ponys trying to help the winded messenger turn to look at him. "Cloudsdale has been attacked. The Children of the Night destroyed it with the help of... of Nightmare Moon!"

There is a terrible still silence, broken only by the heaving breaths of the pegasus, which now begin to sound more and more like sobs. From the desk in the corner a lone pony tries to make himself as quite and inconspicuous as he can mange.

"na, but than again ah' exactly tried yet" Applejack said poping her neck, with attention on him all in the room are giving him evil glares making the shadowbolt gulp "an' ah'm sure when Mac finds out how much trouble Fluttershy might be in ah'm sure he could get 'im to talk."

The Shadow Bolt looks from one set of furious eyes to another. "Wow there!" He calls out, trying to hold up his hooves with out much success (considering there still cuffed to a table). "Well lets not go and do anything crazy here! We did't destroy Cloudsdale! He can tell you!" He jabs his nose at you. "We where trying to stop the pony's that did!" He yanks his bindings, "It was not us! It was the false queen, her and her followers must have done it after was knocked out!" He is begging now.

"What is he talking about, Zack?" Twilight asks turning to you.

"Rainbowdash and Fluttershy could be in serious trouble!" Apple Jack growls, glaring at the bound cultist. "If your lying to save your own hide, so help me I will introduce you to ma big brother's less genital side and you sure ain't going to like that. That's a promises."

"Sweet Luna I am telling you the truth!" What little of the cultist you can see has gone white as a sheet, "Ask me anything! Anything at all and I sawyer I will tell you what I can!"

The impact of the stunning revelation is somewhat lessened by the same revelation having just been delivered by Spike a minute ago, with the added wight of the fall of one of the most vital city's in the nation, but still the confirmation coming from a reliable source was still a blow. Twilight rushed to her desk, almost bowling over Apple Jack who was distracted with the captive attached to the same furnishing. Twilight garbed a quill and ink and began to frantically begin writing a note. Rarity and Pinkie Pie, who had helped escort the sobbing mail mere home return at this moment, looking drained and upset.

"The Town is in an absolute uproar!" Rarity exclaimed. "The news is out and pony's are panicking the street... admittedly they do tend to do that rather allot, but its still a catastrophe!"

Apple Jack turns to you. "If she is back then we need to get Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy back hear now! Who knows what his lot will try and do to them if they catch um!"

Twilight finish the letter and throws it to Spike. "Send this to the princess, Spike!" She turns to the others, "We need to get to Cloudsdale! The Princess will understand." She adds quietly, almost to her self.

"alright, AJ pass me a blue vial from my bag" she did and Zack took a very short sip, a few seconds later he lept off the couch a bit theatricly "ah ether gota love it, I'm going too" {ether - a type of drink that temporarly staves off the phyiscal and mental effects of Magical Exhaustion, the use of magic will null the effect of ether}

The village is a mess. Ponies are running around everywhere.

The road to Cloudsdale is worse, with guards and injured pegasus everywhere.


Your first sight of the flying city is roiling smoke. The what parts of the city remain in the air are half destroyed. Drawing closer you can see the rest of the city, spilled across the sky. Littering the ground are pron pegasus ponies.  Most are being taken care of by guards and citizens, others are clearly well enough to be left alone,  but are to shocked to move. Still others have been hidden by sheets, blankets and even rugs.  In the sky, standing in the remains of the city is Princess Celsitia herself, but not as you have ever seen her before. The Primness of the sun is clad almost head to hoof in golden armor. Flanking her are not two, but six pegasi.  At first you think that they are members of the guard, misuse there traditional glamour spells for some reason as each of the ponys is distract in appearance, but then you recognize them and a shiver runs down your spine. For the first time in living memoir the Wonder Bolts have taken up there traditionally ceremonial role as the elite, first task force of the Equestrian army. The only flying team capable of keeping up with the Sun Princess the the heat of combat. If the Wonder Bolts aren't hear as part of the relief effort for the pegasus's greatest city then it means the Celsitia came expecting a fight and is still not convinced that there will not be one.

The fact that you are discovering this while not in proper uniform, hopped up on a stimulant to keep you from passing out and in the company of a group of ponies that the Princess went to grate lengths to keep out of all possible danger is not helping the niggling feeling that something very bad is about to happen.

"Darkosis can you sense Dash or Fluttershy?" "no there is to much sadness, fear, and dispair around I can't pickout Fluttershy's distinct brand of fear Zack looks around wishing he could do something but he isn't a medic and if he uses any magic it would cancel the effects of the ether. "Twi do you know anything about this pendant?" Zack thought aloud.

Twilight is no longer by your side. All of the element bares, even Pinkie have run straight into the throng of medics and wounded, frantically looking for there friends.  They are making a point of not looking at the dead and dying, weather out of respect or out of fear of finding there friends, you could not say.

A unicorn guard you know spots you and rushes over, snapping a salute. "Lieutenant! I am glade you are hear! The situation is..." He Trails off looking back at the disaster area. "Well its pretty bad, sir. " He finishes, some what lamely. "The Princess is having anypony not involved in medical and crowd control searching." He looks around, then leans in. "Sir, some of the dead where Children of the Night sighs and uniforms!"

{Zack isn't a Lieutenant as of now in the timeline it'll be two years before he makes Lietenant}

"I feared as much, private how many of lost are civis?" Zack looked down fearing the answer


"not as many as you'd think sir most are shadowbolt or bore a sigh of the cult sir." the private slowly lost his composure

"you had famliy here right?"

"yes sir, my cousin sir I had ID her two minutes ago" barely able to hold back the sobs Zack put a hoof on his sholder. "Thank you sir"

"go help others I have to report Princess Celestia" with a salute the Private was gone Zack looked up to where he saw Celestia Its gonna happen sooner or later, better get out of the way now right?
