Captain Equestria - Act I - 01 - Of Life and StrifCaptain Equestria:
"Of Life and Strife"
It was a gorgeous summer morning in the breadbasket of Equestria, without a single cloud in the sky. Acres of apple trees stretched along the gently rolling hills on the outskirts of Ponyville, all in neatly ordered groves. Songbirds filled the air with their delightful music, which brought life to the already beautiful scenery.
And not too far away from the heart of Ponyville, in the unending sea of healthy apple trees, was a scrawny little earth pony filly named Applejack Apple. She was only twelve years old, but she still saw that as no reason she couldn’t enjoy a nice game of Hide and Seek. Which was what she was doing right now. In fact, due to her fragile build, she was easily able to hide in a small bush and watch a massive, dark red earth pony stallion countdown with his face pressed against the trunk of a freshly bucked tree. Seeing him like that made it very hard for Applejack to sup

Snowflake wandered in what seemed to be a seemingly endless maze, its walls, roof and floor lined with hundreds of mirrors. The strangest thing about these mirrors though, is that each one reflected a different image. Each image was distorted and warped, like that of a funhouse.
Some images made Snowflake look more like a giraffe then a pony. Another one made him look like a cyclops. It was all very strange to Snowflake. A thick, almost impenetrable mist hung low around his hooves, only clearing occasionally, always to reveal another warped and distorted image of Snowflake.
“Um…hello?” he called out, his voice echoing strangely. With each echo it became more and more distorted, and strange ghostly laughter echoed back from some point deep within the maze.
“Um…hello? Anypony?” he called out again, his voice once more echoing strangely and eerily. With each of h

Rainbow Dash let out a long groan and slowly opened her eyes. She was in yet another white room except this time it was just her lying on a small bed with no covers or sheets.
She tried to move her legs. Something tightened.
What in Faust’s name? She looked down at her legs to see that she was pinned across each of her legs by tight black straps. She felt a wave of panic burn through her heart like a hot coal and it made her brain buzz like a hive of hornets. She felt her breath coming in dry and short gasps despite that her lungs were aching to draw them out.
A sudden memory of the unsettling earth pony with the saccharine voice flashed across her mind. She clenched her eyes shut.
Stop, Rainbow, and THINK. You make too much of a scene and that pony will return with her horde and spell you again. You’ve been in worse situations before. These are mortal bonds after all. Surely they do not think to

"The Tip of the Iceberg"
Agent Spike’s claw tapped in a slow, methodical sequence against the steel table bolted to the floor. His scaly eye ridges scrunched in concentration as he studied the files that Director Armor practically threw in his arms. Normally the veteran would be cool when handing Spike his assignments, like with the “Iron Mare”, but this one was an odd case, and he knew it just from his boss’s strange excitement from the relatively minimal amount of data. Sure he’s heard of the stories revolving around this particular pony, but he honestly saw no reason to get school filly giddy over a bunch of bones. If they even found bones.
Spike grabbed his mug of hot chocolate and took a small sip, still reading the files, but when he swallowed his drink, he realized that his taste buds might never forgive him for allowing cold hot chocolate in his mouth. Spike frowned and quickly warmed up his mug with a short burst of fire. He took another

Snowflake sat in the waiting room, just outside a lab in the MagiTech headquarters in Canterlot. Having spent the last three months abroad, he was glad to be back in Equestria; a place where everypony spoke the same language and all the food was edible. After Hoofcuff’s unexpected departure, the General had taken Snowflake to Canterlot, where he would finally receive the thing he so deeply desired:
Pure, unbridled power and superiority.
His thoughts drifted from subject to subject as he waited, tapping his hoof impatiently. At the thought of how that grey mare had gotten all riled when she found out about Flutterhulk, he snickered.
Figures that mare couldn’t handle it. He thought. After all, this is a stallion’s world.
He let out a smug sigh and continued to scan the room, his impatience growing.
The door suddenly opened and a rather bookish mare leaned out the door and motioned toward

The final bell rung and a young Fluttershy quietly walked down the halls of Canterlot Middle School, doing her best not attract any unwanted attention. Ever since her fight with Dark Sky, not a single pony dared to approach her. At whichever table she sat in the cafeteria, the other fillies and colts would instantly shy away and move to another table. Every time that happened, it felt like a part of Fluttershy's soul was dying.
More often than not, she would catch the snippets of their gossip when she walked by, with words like “freak”, “weirdo” or the worst of them all, “monster” being said along with her name.
She stopped in front of her locker and stared at the dented metal, which served as a constant reminder of her horrible actions.
”I did that.. “ She thought, tears coming to her eyes. “Everypony treats me like I'm some ki

Daring Do pulled her coat tighter around her body. She was reminded of the various times she’d been up various nights across Equestria and she had to admit she’d yet to see a night this beautiful.
Firefly would have loved this weather.
Daring Do instinctively glanced at Scootaloo, as if afraid she might have heard her thoughts, but the orange filly was too consumed staring at the stars, lifting the camera hanging from her neck every now and then to snap a picture.
“What’s the name of that one, Comet Tail?” Scootaloo asked the greenish yellow unicorn with a powder blue mane sitting beside them.
The unicorn turned from his immense telescope and squinted where the filly was pointing.
“That’s Borr the All-Father. You see that large flashing one? That’s his eye and those five clustered around it are his ear, his forehead and his nose.”

Hoofcuff stalked through the temporary camp, scanning the various cots for Starlight. After the revelation of that giant…thing, she had made a beeline for the temporary medical tents that now littered the remains of the prison.
Hoofcuff was still in a state of quasi-shock over what she had just witnessed.
Where the hell did that thing come from? She thought. She ran through the proceeding events in her mind.
I heard the announcement, came down the hall, enter the room and then a giant green monster is storming around…what the hell?!
No matter how many times she ran through the situation, it only managed to make less, and less sense. How could that thing in anyway be related to Fluttershy? Sure it kind of looking like her, except…it was gigantic…and green…and could smash tanks together like little toy cars. It was disturbing.
She shook her head to clear away the thou

NOTES: Suspect shows signs of extreme paranoia, refusing to give name or hoof-prints. Consistent mentioning of a certain other mare by the name of “New Fluttershy”. When inquired upon refuses to give any more information on said pony.
Officer Thoroughbred walked into the prisoner’s cell, bored as ever.
Apparently, the dose of tranquilizers had worn off, and it was his job to administer another dose.
The sight of the prisoner however, never seemed to match the hype she had been given. She didn’t look like a threat at all. Opposite, she looked like the least dangerous, most pitiful and easily dealt with prisoner he&
