My Little Pony: Fire of Friendship (fanfic idea/preview)
A little idea that just came to me. Let me know what you guys think. :3
(Based loosely on Star Trek: First Contact)
"Foolish unicorn..." muttered Commander Hurricane under his breath as he approached Shining Armor.
"Now isn't the time for this," he replied, looking off in the distance.
Hurricane sighed. "I know naught about thy time," he began, "but the ponies under thy command doth believe that fighting the Changelings is suicidal. They only fear to speak of this to thee."
"They're only following my orders."
"Indeed, however, perchance they doth not see reason in them?"
"Nopony understands the Changelings like I do," Shining Armor said, turning to face the pegasus leader. "nopony ever can."
"And what, pray tell, art thou implying?"
Shining Armor sighed. "Two years ago... my then-fiancee was abducted and replaced by their leader before the wedding. She had us all fooled, and by the time somepony was doing something about it, I was already under her mind control. My free will, stripped away. So you can imagine, sir, that I have a unique perspective on the Changelings, and I know how to fight them. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have work to do!"
Suddenly, a realization hit Hurricane like his namesake.
"Oh, what folly hath befallen me!" he said smugly. "'Tis simple... the Changelings hath attacked thee, and now, thou doth wish to attack them in return!"
"In my time, we don't succumb to revenge! We've evolved past such petty things!"
"Lies!" replied Hurricane, "Didst thee not enjoy thy assault on the Changeling horde in the Earth pony stronghold?!"
Shining was really upset now. "How dare you?!" he demanded in rage.
"Do not deny it, Prince! For thou art not the first pony to enjoy slaughter, nor shalt thou be the last!"
"GET AWAY FROM ME!!"
"And if I do not?" replied Hurricane, even more smugly, "Shalt thou execute me, as was the fate of poor Stormfeather?!"
Shining Armor hung his head in guilt. "I couldn't save him," he said somberly.
"But thee didst not so much as make an attempt to do so!" replied Hurricane sternly.
"I don't have time for-"
"My apologies, I didst have no intention of interrupting thy quest for vengeance," said Hurricane, rolling his eyes.
"This isn't about revenge!" raged Shining Armor, "It's about protecting the future of all ponykind!"
"Prince Armor, THOU MUST EVACUATE THY BLASTED COMPOUND AT ONCE!!" Hurricane demanded, more commanding than before.
"NO!! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" As Shining Armor belowed in rage, he fired a beam from his horn, destroying the shelf of miniature ponies in front of him.
"NO MORE SACRIFICES! NO MORE COMPROMISES! NO MORE RETREATS! NO MORE SURRENDER!" Shining Armor shouted in violent fury, "THE LINE MUST BE DRAWN, AND IT WILL BE DRAWN HERE!! THE CHANGELINGS WILL PAY FOR ALL THE HARM THEY'VE CAUSED, I SWEAR ON IT!!"
"Wouldst thy wife wish to see thou taketh such drastic choice of action?!" said Hurricane inquisitively. This caused Shining Armor to freeze in shock and think for a moment. The words of the pegasus commander echoed through his head, as if in a cave, as images of Cadence flashed through his mind.
Wouldst thy wife wish to see thou taketh such drastic choice of action?!
"You're right," he said quietly, "Tell the others to begin evacuation preparations."
