Riley leapt away from the table as it dematerialized. He grabbed for his bow out of instinct, only to remember, to his chagrin, that it was broken. "Oh." He normally only used one dagger, but he kept a second one on him just in case of a situation like this. He drew both of them, and then looked up and saw Bracer's transformation take place. "What?" He watched as his form became that of a skeleton, and how effortlessly he cut down Jaelhart. "NO! Dammit Bracer, what are you doing?" It was just him, Tamika, Trixe, and Terri now. Between Discord, and now Bracer, the odds were not in their favor, and fighting was, at this point inevitable.

Nevertheless, Riley didn't want to shed blood unless it was completely necessary, and diplomacy may have still been an option. "Bracer, I know you're in there somewhere. I know you've had a troubled past, and that it has haunted you to this day. I can't begin to imagine how many you may have killed, but it doesn't have to continue. This isn't you, Bracer!"

((Oh.... ShMlp-sno))

Terri observed the whole situation with an blank expression. "Bracer.... we will bring the one we know back, whether by force, or by death." she then takes stance for evasion if he chose to striker her.

Death/Bracer didn't react to the tea that stained his black cloak. He slowly turned around. The tip of his scythe drew a half-circle on the floor around him as he dragged it with him, still lowered after it has taken a life.

"The pain I have caused...the horror of every life this instrument of brutality has sundered...I did it all in the name of justice. Justice for the death of my family...my friends...my love...but no matter how many I felled...no matter how tall a castle I toppled...in the end..."

Shard entered the throne room, and to her confusion was met with the sight of the crying reaper. She was shocked when she realized his identity through Riley's words:

Though Riley's words had power in them, they failed to sway the broken pony before him.

"I am not like this...the very words I uttered to myself the day I was cast out. I wanted to believe I was a different pony, one that saved lives...one that could have hope. But with foolishness I was stricken twice, for despite relinquishing my scythe, still I drew death, and still my hooves were bloodied by others."

Death/Bracer continued his woeful tale.

"I couldn't escape my fate, no matter what I would do...and even then, when I wanted to breath the winds of change to my existence...secretly, in my heart...I delighted in every death, and in every pair of eyes that dimmed."

Trixe struggled with her insanity, but managed to cry out her words to Death/Bracer. He stopped his slow walk, and looked at the unicorn in sorrow.

"Trixe...the path of darkness is familiar to you. You have also seen the horrors of this world, and all that has passed...yet you remain, and believe in me. Do you not see but a petty murderer, fated to kill, and to destroy?"

He now raised his ethereal scythe in the air, ready to strike down upon all.

"What do you see?"

Tamika looked across the table around the room for anything that could be used defensively, just in case this didn't work.

Shard was no longer calm after seeing what Bracer had become. In fact, she no longer cared for being calm. She flared her wings out and prepared to charge... And then she noticed JaelHeart motionless on the floor, not wounded, but not moving either.
The boiling rage she felt immediately evaporated into fear.
Her once flared wings suddenly trembled and clamped to her sides. She took a few steps back, trying to crouch down and make herself smaller as she did.

"The path of virtue has forever been denied from me," Death/Bracer said, his scythe raised to reap the crops of mortal life. "I sought to forget my darkness, but my memories would not be vanquished, not by sword, nor by magic, for my fate is to cause grief unto others...and most of all, to myself."

A moment of silence was brought upon the ponies, until a loud clang was heard on the floor.

Death/Bracer stood still. He looked down on the scythe that has fallen from the grasp of his teeth, seemingly bewildered by what he witnessed. Another moment passed, until he said:

"...I have a choice. No matter what the world may take from me...it can't take my choice.
I have choice to redeem myself, to finish what I have started, and to overthrow the madness that has seated high upon my actions.
Discord may have power over me, but his will won't poison my thought any longer. His might stands no more in the face of my destiny. As I stand here as a friend, so shall the ponies of Equestria stand together as friends, and in a union of harmony repel any evil."

"I can still make a choice, and it is thus: I choose a revolution of friendship!"

It was then that light burst from the ruby on his armlet, encasing him. Corruption escaped from his coat as he stepped back as a new pony; his cloak flowed gray in the wind, and his eyes shone with a new fire.

He touched the cruel scythe on the floor, and it's form changed from a sinister appearance to what it has always been: a regular farmer's tool.

"I have been in a restless dream my entire life...but now, I have finally awoken."



The ponies saw that the fight between Discord and the Princesses was coming to an end.

Discord landed on the very top of the castle, and made a dramatic pose as the Princesses circled him, and cast an immensely powerful spell upon him. He was turned to stone even as he gloated:

"You have not seen the last of me, little ponies! I'll be back, and when I do...EQUESTRIA WILL BE MINE! HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!"

Thus he was turned to stone by the Princesses. But though the Princesses were wrong when they assumed their spell would bind him for eternity, he would not be released until thousands of years later.

The Princesses were tired, and almost fell when they descended down to the throne room, Discord's statue levitating behind them. But through their weariness a great joy shined.

"We have done it, sister! We have defeated Discord!" mlp-lufun

"Indeed we have. Equestria is now forever free from his chaos." mlp-cesmug

"But now is not the time for celebration; we must make peace on Canterlot, and seal the gate that Discord has opened." mlp-ceoh

Bracer knelt before the Princesses.

"Your Majesties, I have sinned against you, and brought death and devastation upon this land. I ask only of forgiveness, so that I may repent, and one day redeem myself of my deeds."

The Princesses were silent, until Celestia proclaimed:

"Though you had your own part in the evils you have committed, their root lies in the malice of Discord. Your oath of vengeance was sworn hastily in times of chaos, and Discord's hand led you to what you have committed."

"As Princess of Equestria and Alicorn of the Shining Sun, I thus sentence you to service in the restoration of Equestria, until you deem yourself redeemed of your crimes. We have spoken."
mlp-cesigh

"Thank you, Your Majesty,-" Bracer said in tears. "Your forgiveness I shall praise until my last breath."

Riley let out a sigh and brought his daggers back to their sheathes. I guess I was wrong, he thought, going back to what he thought just after Bracer had turned. He looked towards Jaelhart and bowed his head for a moment. His gaze shifted between the others, then up to the sky, just in time to see Discord get encased in stone.

"Is it... Is this real?" Riley couldn't believe it. Their journey may have finally come to an end. No more discord, no more chaos, no more death and war and cruelty. Riley opened his mouth to say something. The words came out quietly, but they were there. "

The Princesses cast a teleportation spell on the ponies. They were consumed by light once again as they travelled through space, and landed on a green field at a considerable distance from Canterlot, where they would be safe to spectate.

The ponies now witnessed from afar the labours of the Princesses, which would pass down in songs and legends amongst the Equestrian people.

First the Princesses descended down upon the city of Canterlot. Sparkles of silver and golden flashed as they rescued ponies from every street and house. In mere hours the city was emptied of Equestrians and their allies, and only the foul summoned beasts of Discord were left to roam, denied of the hunt.



What followed was to be remembered as the legendary event known as the Starfall: Princess Celestia activated the Elements of Harmony, and removed the spell of levitation that Discord has cast upon his castle.

The castle plummeted from the heavens, enveloped in the golden hue of Celestia's magic, and crashed down upon the side of the mountain, on the city of Canterlot. The entire city was decimated, and only a few of the monstrous creatures survived, escaping far away to the dark places of the world.
Thus Celestia made a heavy choice, and sacrificed the proud capital. From that day forth she made an oath that it would be rebuilt one day in its full glory.



As Celestia performed her astounding feat, Princess Luna travelled deep into the Everfree Forest, and attempted to seal the gate to Tartaros hidden within. It is told in stories many years later, that while Luna was not successful, she was determined that no creature or spirit would pass through it to Equestria ever again.

She called the three-headed monster that she has tamed while she rescued the ponies of Canterlot, named Cerberus, and commanded the beast to forever guard the gate of Tartaros.
To this day Cerberus, obedient to his mistress, is enchanted to forever guard the gate, and to repel any force that would seek to invade through it.
She herself deemed it best to stay and keep a watchful eye over the gate, and thus laid the foundations for a new castle, where she could live with her sister, and from where they could govern over the land.

It would shine for only a short time in the ages, soon to be forgotten by all, but would forever mark the dedication Luna had for the safety of Equestria.



The ponies were now witnesses to the Starfall, and they could only watch in a mix of fear and awe of the power of the Princesses. They were joined by the ponies of Canterlot; there were freedom fighters and former members of the Chaos Legion who shared hugs and hoof bumps, there were regular citizens who were glad to have survived, and even some minotaurs and griffins that were evacuated among the ponies.

They all watched together the destruction of Canterlot, and forever learned to heed the word of Alicorns, either in reverence or in fear, for theirs were eternally the right to the royal throne.

Tamika watched in awe at the castle crashing into the mountain. After a moment she turned to the others and saluted. "It has been an honor working with you all, and maybe we will meet again someday, but I promised to help the fire elementals and I have to find them again to do this."

She the took flight and waved her farewells.

Despite Discord's defeat and the victory over chaos, Shard couldn't bring herself to truly feel that she had helped accomplish anything. Part of it could've been how she slowly became more and more idle over the course of the journey, and part of it could've been due to her still troubled and self-conflicting mind from the events of the Room of Memories...
Either way, she remained silent throughout the entire event.

Zenith arrived to the scene, and Bracer greeted him. They shared a brotherly hug, and he told what he saw once he entered the city during it's bloodiest moments. Zenith purposefully skipped over certain parts, but it was only lightly easier to hear.

"And what happened to Nebula...Well, let' just say he fought valiantly to the very end and leave it at that. But hey, we have won! Equestria is free from Discord!"

She the took flight and waved her farewells.

Tamika almost fled, but was quickly scooped up in Zenith's hooves.

"Where do you think you're going, kid?" He said with a wide smile. "We are going to celebrate this victory with a feast! I'm sure you don't want to miss that, do you?"

Bracer responded with a smile. His eyes were full of new light and purpose; it was like he turned decades younger.

"I must serve the Princesses for now, until my heart has deemed my past actions forgiven. But grieve not, for we can always share the roads another time." mlp-aflattered



Weeks and months passed as Equestria was stepping out of the shadow of Discord's reign, and took it's first steps towards a a better future for all.

The Princesses removed all of the corrupted magic Discord has used to warp Equestria, and established new laws of equality and justice. The Royal Guard was assembled, not to wage war, but to act as the protectors of the weak, and to preserve peace within the realm, and to act as the Princesses's voices when they could not be heard.

Thus a new age has begun, and to celebrate it Princess Celestia held a grand ceremony in the city of Stalliongrad, where this story has begun.

The building where the ceremony was kept was large and tall, soaring to the clouds. It was like a church, but was committed to the worship of harmony and friendship.

Many ponies attended this event, new friends and old faces alike. Even Nitrate was present, held aloft on a soft throne by the strong arms of minotaurs.

The Guards blared their horns, and the doors were opened to welcome the ponies that have aided the Princesses in the defeat of Discord, each of their names called out by a choir of angel-voiced pegasi as they walked down the red carpet:

"Please welcome the heroes and heroines of Equestria:

Riley Topalev!

Trixe Spark!

Tamika of Stalliongrad!

Silver Shard!

And finally, Terri Kazama!"

The ponies took their positions before the Princesses, and were seen by all. They knelt down as Princess Celestia touched their shoulders with her horn, and thus knighted them.

Then Princess Celestia proclaimed in a benevolent voice:

"We are gathered here today to honor the heroism of these brave ponies who stood up to the villain Discord and saved Equestria from eternal chaos. You have fought against all odds, and aided us when we defeated Discord." mlp-cesmug

"We are thankful, and thus we offer you this reward:

You may ask for a single wish, and if we have the power to grant it, we shall do so."


Princess Luna nodded in agreement.

"Think wisely, and when you are ready, speak out your dreams. And know that dreams can become true when you believe in them." mlp-lugrin

Tamika thought for a moment. "All I could ask for now, is that my family be informed that I am safe and will find them once I've fulfilled my promise to the flames." She then bowed before the princesses. "But if I could save that wish for a rainy day, that'd be nice." She smiled slightly, still within her bow.

Riley watched as the floating palace was brought down onto the city of Canterlot. He reflected on the various lives that were undoubtedly lost in the fray, including the two deaths from their own team. He looked down and saw that his bow had been transported along with him. He took out an arrow and split it at the nock, then jammed it into the ground. He used his magic to split the arrow such that it would be able to balance the bow, then set his bow onto the arrow. He used what was left of the string to secure it, then stripped a piece of bark from a nearby tree. He then used his dagger to cut the following inscription into it.

"Dedicated to Jaelhart, a brave warrior of the Equestria Freedom Movement, and to Cara, the last Confessor. They fought bravely to the end. They are gone, but never will they be forgotten."

Riley bowed his head for a moment, then looked towards Shard, who seemed as distant as she was beautiful. He wondered if he was right in being so blunt with her before the battle had started. He knew exactly how he felt towards her, but he doubted whether she felt the same way. He decided it may be best left that way.


(Months later)

Riley unbowed his head and said to the princesses. "Мая свободу остаются о стране сей." (May freedom remain for this land.) Riley turned back to the gathering of ponies and said no more.

"My wish..." after a moment of thought she made up her mind. "Princesses, If it is possible, can you heal my love Nitrate back to how she was before? She has done things to help out equestria more then i have in my time of traveling with the group. I will understand if the wish is not possible. many hardships will await us, and i don't think there's a ship we cant overcome."

"Actually..." Shard thought for a second. "...Where I'm from, it's always been a sort of... Dream of ours to, well..."
She was hesitant to speak for a bit.
"...to become an apprentice of Luna?"

"All I could ask for now, is that my family be informed that I am safe and will find them once I've fulfilled my promise to the flames." She then bowed before the princesses. "But if I could save that wish for a rainy day, that'd be nice." She smiled slightly, still within her bow.

Princess Celestia's horn glowed with powerful magic as she cast a spell, and a small object appeared before Tamika. It was a golden compass, surprisingly easy to grab. It illuminated light from within, a great boon for dark nights.

"This is our gift to you, young one. It is a magic compass that shall always point to your family. And when you open it and speak to it, it shall deliver your words to them. Keep it close to your heart, and you will never become lost on your way."

"Если даже один пони-прежнему имеет свободу в сердце,,земля остается свободным. Ваше смирение приносит радость нам," Princess Celestia said as she responded in kind, and smiled at Riley.

"Bring her to us," Luna said.

The minotaurs obeyed, and Nitrate was set before the Princesses. She was nervous, and lowered her head in humility.

"Oh, I never thought...I simply came here to see my dear Terri, nothing more."

"Do not be afraid," Princess Celestia said. Nitrate raised hear head, and looked at her straight in the eyes.

"Until now, magic has been used only for violence and selfishness, with no established order or harmony within the practitioners of the arcane. But here you shall see the true potential for magic. It is not a weapon or a tool, but a blessing, given to all."

Princess Celestia then touched Nitrate's forehead, and channelled magic through it to all over Nitrate's body. The earth pony was amazed to see her limbs heal within seconds, the burns and scars fading away like distant memories. She moved her forehoof before her face, shocked with utter joy.

"See the miracle before you, and rejoice! For this great magic can be taught to any unicorn young who is gifted. We shall found a school of magic, where potential could blossom, and where a simple pony can strive to greatness, and to serve for the good of all."

Nitrate took a step out of her throne, and was bursting with joy.

"I don't know what to say...how can I ever thank you?"

"It is not us you should be thanking, but Terri," Luna said with a smile.

"Terri! I'm so glad to see you again!" Nitrate jumped and danced like a deer, happy to be healed from her disability, but even more so when she Terri. She jumped and catched Terri in her embrace.

"Terri, this is the happiest day of my life. I missed you, my love."

Now Princess Luna stepped before the ponies. She touched Trixe's forehead with her horn.

"You have been cursed with a great darkness. No living creature should ever carry such a heavy burden. We will lift the shroud of madness away, and restore you, just like the pony before you was restored."

Luna's horn glowed with iridescent light, and an aura of dark magic formed around Trixe. A dark stream of corruptive magic flowed from Trixe, and was drawn to Luna's horn. Trixe felt like her mind was cleared of years of abuse her magic has wrought on her, and was restored to perfect mental health.

Luna swayed her head a little, but soon regained her composure. Celestia was worried, but Luna raised her hoof. She stopped the Royal Guard that came to help her.

"Do not be alarmed, our loyal subjects. We are fine. We have simply lifted the curse of insanity away from this poor mare. It was nothing..."

Luna blushed, and averted her eyes from the ponies.

"Really? Well, we suppose it is our duty as Princess to act as a mentor, and to pass our teachings on to our subjects...but your choice bewilders us."

"We are wise, yes, but Princess Celestia surely has more wisdom in her words. If one is more suited to taking an apprentice, that honor should go to our sister..."


"Luna, what are you saying?" Princess Celestia asked with a smirk. mlp-cesmug
"Of course you can take her as your apprentice. There is much that you can teach."


"Yes, Celestia, but we were just wondering...if we are yet up to a task of such matters..." mlp-luthought

She pondered for a while, but then said with a clear voice:

"Very well. We shall take you as our apprentice, and pass to your our knowledge. However, we require of you an oath of fealty, so that you may never turn against us."

"Really?" Shard's ears perked up. "Oh, thank you! I'll gladly do whatever is necessary."
