"Books and Magic hold the answers" Dawn Bright
My Little Pony: Voyage of Friendship
Episode 1: It Begins part 1
Dawn panted as she cantered down the kalye in Ponyville. Gotta to get to the Ponyville Hotel! She thought. She almost past it in her rush. She then bounded through the doors, up the marble stairs, and rapidly knocked on room 245’s door.
“Uncle Armor, Aunt Cadance, open up! It’s me, Dawn Bright,” Dawn shouted. She then heard hoofsteps and then her uncle, Shining Armor, opened the door and said, “Dawn Bright great of you- Dawn didn’t give him the chance to finish as she rushed in and hide behind a chair.
Aunt Cadance walked in as Dawn ordered, “If anypony asks for me I am not here. Understanding?”
Shining Armor nodded and grinned. Just then somepony else started banging on the door and shouted, “Shining Armor, Cadance, it’s me, Twilight Sparkle, let me in! And Dawn Bright I know you’re in there!”
Dawn gulped from behind her hiding place and started shaking. Shining Armor opened the door and Twilight burst in, looking angrier a than a rodeo bull.
“Dawn Bright,” Twilight implored as she dragged Dawn sa pamamagitan ng her tail, “We’re going to be late because of you!” Twilight looked down at Dawn. The two mga kabayong may sungay would have been identical if Dawn’s main body color wasn’t blue and her cutie mark wasn’t the bright bituin surrounded in a bituin swirl.
“But Mom Sonic and Flashbolt are going to be there and you know how annoying they are!” Dawn begged her mother as she was dragged out the door. “But the Dash twin- was the last thing Shining Armor and Cadance heard as the whining unicorn was pulled out the door.
Sonic scanned the sky around the house for her brother. She saw a streak of blue and raced after it. She tagged the blue Pegasus just as a boom was heard and she went flying off.
“Ha, slowpoke,” she shouted to her brother Flashbolt, “Try to bet that!” Five segundos later the arrogant Pegasus face planted into a cloud. “Tag,” Flashbolt sinabi as he tapped his sister and raced off. Sonic narrowed her eyes and was about to chase her brother when both heard, “Sonic Rainboom, Flashbolt come here.” Strange Sonic thought. Their mom never used her full name unless it was important. Everyone just called her Sonic since Sonic Rainboom was such a mouthful.
“Coming mom,” the twins shouted. They flew right into her tumbling across their ulap porch.
“Hey you two,” bahaghari Dash sinabi looking her kids. Flashbolt was her sky blue but a short cut, windblown, royal blue mane and tail of his father. He also had his father’s blue eyes but they were always hidden under his racing goggles. Sonic on the other hand had her father’s coat, white, but her mother’s mane, tail, and eyes. She never wore goggles. There cutie marks were a lightening bolt with wings and a sonic rainboom (I wonder which is which hmmm…).
“You didn’t forget about the get together, right?” bahaghari Dash asked her twins.
The twins groaned and protested but bahaghari Dash would hear none of it.
“Come’on guys, I heard from Pinkie Pie that Swirly Works has a new surprise!” bahaghari told them. “All the madami reason NOT to go,” Sonic muttered.
Swirly clapped her hooves. It was perfect, probably the best she had ever done. Swirly looked at herself in the mirror and sinabi to herself, “Swirly, you’ve out done yourself, well maybe except for the princess’ birthday. I mean what could have been madami spectacular than… and the multicolored parang buriko started going on to herself in her weird convoluted fashion.
Swirly Works looked just like her mother in build and mane/tail style but her mga kulay were different. While Pinkie Pie was pink, Swirly Works had a yellow coat, purple eyes, red and kahel mane, and a green and blue tail. Just like her special talent, fireworks, she was colorful and fun. Like her mom she was mga kaibigan with everypony, well almost everypony, and loved having late outdoor parties which always had a ipakita of her fireworks. She also loved to attend her mom’s parties. Just then Pinkie Pie stuck her head through the door and said, “Swirly Works, OMC (Oh My Celestia), I saw that and it was super spectacular!”
“Thanks a bunch mom,” Swirly Works said.
“Hey you want to ipakita it at the get together today?” Pinkie Pie asked her daughter.
Swirly Works smile turned upside down as she said, “I would pag-ibig to but those six other ponies are the only ponies in all of Ponyville that aren’t my friends. I mean last buwan I made a special firework for hummingbird and all she did was hide under the sopa covering her ears.”
“Awww come on silly willy,” Pinkie Pie sinabi to Swirly Works, “it will be better this year.”
“Okie Dokie Loki,” Swirly Works sinabi as she bounced after her mom.
“Here you go little ones,” hummingbird sinabi to the ardilya family. They chattered their thanks as hummingbird floated down. Her pet hummingbird, Tropic was perched on the mint green pony’s shoulder. She hummed as she walked back to her family’s forest cottage.
“Hello mom, I’m home,” hummingbird quietly called.
“Hello, sweetheart,” her mom called in an equally quiet voice, “we’re leaving for the reunion.”
“The re reunion?!” hummingbird sinabi as her breath started to quicken.
“Yes, the reunion,” Fluttershy answered as she walked in the room. She looked at her sweet daughter who was beginning to hyperventilate. She had light green amerikana and a red and kulay-rosas mane and tail with a little hummingbird as a cutie mark.
“Ohmompleasedon’tmakemegotoit,” begged as she began to slur her words cause she got nervous.
“It wasn’t that bad,” Fluttershy insisted.
“It’sjustthatAppleBuckwasbeingreallyloudandwell SCARY!” hummingbird said. But despite her protests, hummingbird walked after her out the door.
mansanas Buck aimed at the puno and kicked. He was rewarded with the thud of apples hitting the baskets.
“Good job mansanas Buck,” his ma said, “now here a minute.” mansanas Buck walked over to his ma, mansanas Jack. mansanas Jack looked at her son. He had a ginto amerikana with a messy green mane and tail with his mansanas cutie mark. “So you remembered the get together, right?” mansanas jack asked her son.
“Yup, but do I really have to go?” he asked his ma, “cuz that Cre has all her fancy-shamncy paint and artsy stuff. She can be really annoying, especially when she wants you to pose for one of her paintins. She may have every other stallion wrapped around her hoof but not me.”
“Yes, you have ta go whether it be the easy way or the hard way,” mansanas Jack honestly answered her son. He snorted and followed his ma down the road from Sweet mansanas Acres.
Creativity, or Cre as her mga kaibigan called her, cocked her head and sighed it was missing something she just didn’t know what. Cre was in her room over her mom’s boutique. The walls were a hand painted mural. The only pieces of furniture were her kama and desk. The kama was for sleep and the mesa was for drawing. Everywhere else there was art supplies. There were many stands with blank or in progress paintings. Her mesa was littered with drawings and the walls were covered with notes and sketches. There were paint cans, oil pastels, and pencils everywhere. Some would call it a train wreck but Cre preferred to think of it as inspirationally organized. She was almost done with her parents anniversary gift but she felt like it was missing something. Then her mom poked her head through the door.
Rarity looked at her daughter. Like her she was a unicorn and had a royal purple mane and tail. She also had a pure white coat. But Cre wore her hair differently and had sky blue highlights. Her cutie marks was an artist’s palette. She was working hard on a painting and Rarity hated disturbing her but the get together was about to began and they were hosting it. She hoped her husband would finish the decorations.
“Creativity, dear, it’s almost time for the reunion,” Rarity called to her daughter.
Cre sighed and put down her paintbrush. She grabbed a drawing pad and a pencil. She wasn’t going to let a silly party ruin her creative flow. Cre frowned and hoped that Dawn, that stick in the mud, wouldn’t ruin her creativity with her uptight organization and rules. Cre sighed as she headed down stairs.
“Oh hello Twilight darling!”
“Rainbow Dash! Great to see you!”
“Pinkie Pie, you brought cupcakes. They look delicious!”
“Oh Fluttershy, darling, you look marvelous!”
“Apple Jack, you brought zap mansanas jam! Amazing, simply amazing.”
Cre heard her mother greeting her mga kaibigan all the way from the tuktok of the stairs. She saw the adults talking and the teens standing awkwardly susunod to their parent. This get together happened every buwan when all the teens’ mothers had a party having fun and stuck their kids in a room hoping them to get along. Every buwan something a bit different happens.
Cre took inventory to see that they were all here. There was Dawn Bright who had her nose in books all day. She never even took the time to look at Cre’s paintings or drawing and always responded with its beautiful. There were the Dash twins, Sonic and Flashbolt. Flashbolt admired Cre, like almost every other single stallion, but while he left her alone, his sister was twice as annoying to her. At that moment Sonic elbowed Flashbolt in the ribs to stop staring at Cre. Then there was Swirly Works. She was just as fun loving and twice as eccentric as her mother. Her special talent was fireworks and threw huge outdoor parties to showcase them. Cre refused to go as Swirly accidentally destroyed one of Cre’s paintings but her mga kaibigan sinabi that they were spectacular. Then there was Hummingbird, sweet girl but very shy. She was very nervous and when Cre even tried to make a conversation with her it went no where. And of course there was mansanas Buck he hated Cre for reasons unknown to her and refused to succumb to her charm. Cre finished walking down the stairs and joined the “party.”
“Spike darling won’t you watch the children?” Rarity called to her husband.
“’Course,” the purple and green Pegasus said. Spike had once been a dragon but because of a wish he was transformed into a Pegasus. He still has dragon qualities, like breathing fire, not being affected sa pamamagitan ng heat, and chomps on the occasional gemstone. Cre considers herself half dragon because of this. The ladies walked into the room that Rarity and Spike had prepared for their party. Spike then turned to the teens and said, “O.K. looks like I’m going to watch you but your old enough, right? I’ll just be upstairs working.” And on that note he raced upstairs not wanting to be in the same room as the chaos that was about to unfold.
The teens walked into the living room and sat around the coffee mesa where they ate a small dinner. All went their separate ways, Dawn reading, Sonic and Flashbolt sleeping, Swirly Works fiddling with what ever was in the box she had carried in the house, hummingbird talking to Rarity’s pet cat, Topaz, mansanas Buck practicing his buck for the rodeo, and Cre drawing. Cre glanced over at Dawn. Her face was blank and she was concentrating on the book.
“Stop it,” Cre sinabi to her.
Dawn looked up and asked, “Stop what?”
Cre answered, “Being sooooo uptight.”
“Oh yea,” Dawn sinabi as her eyes narrowed.
Sonic groaned from the bookshelf. With those two fighting she couldn’t sleep. “Hey, Flashbolt, you wanna play a prank?” she asked her brother. Jumped up and answered, “oh yea!”
The two fly over mansanas Buck who was too busy concentrating on his kick to notice the twins. Sonic stifled a giggle while Flashbolt sprinkled pepper on mansanas Buck’s nose.
“AH AH ACHOO!” mansanas Buck sneezed as he kicked. He accidentally knocked over a vase which crashed to the ground. It scared Topaz away and hummingbird headed over to mansanas Buck.
“Be madami careful oh if you don’t mind of course,” hummingbird said.
“Well what is it? Do you want me to be madami careful or do what I want? Choose!” mansanas Buck sinabi to Hummingbird. She let out something like a squeak and ran away. Cre started yelling at mansanas Buck for yelling at Hummingbird. Sonic and Flashbolt started pulling pranks on everypony. Everypony started arguing and throwing Cre’s paint at each other.
Swirly Works, who had been focused on her box until that moment shouted, “HEY WHO WANTS ME TO PULL THE RIBBON!” Somepony or another, in the confusion, shouted back, “SURE!”
“Okie Doki Loki,” Swirly Works shouted. Hummingbird, who realized what was about to happen, kalapati under the couch. And then Swirly pulled the ribbon.
BOOM! SWOSH! BOOM! BANG!
After the blinding light ipakita ended and the noise quieted. The room was covered in black soot. Everypony except Swirly Work was dazed and covered in soot.
“Hey, how you guys like that, super spectacular, right?” Swirly sinabi as she bounced around the others. Then the parents walked in. Everyone left in a matter of minutes.
Dawn Bright had her head down. Twilight then said, “I am very”
“Disappointed in you,” bahaghari Dash sinabi to the twins, “Maybe it’s”
“For the best that Princess Celestia,” Pinkie Pie said.
“Wanted you to go with the others,” Fluttershy continued
“On a Voyage to the Unknown,” Rarity finished.
All of them shouted at once, “TO THE UNKNOWN,”
Swirly Works, “YEAH ROAD TRIP, or madami like bangka trip.
