My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
A Changling of Heart
Golden Oaks Library 7:05 A.M.
A few months after the party, the town had been going about a normal day and Pinkie Pie had thrown a cute-ceanera for Quillwrite’s sister, Cotton Heart, the day after the party, making it extra special for her. Quillwrite and Chrysalis had begun dating the day after the party as well, the moment they kissed one another captured by Lone Wolf on photo which had been framed. The two of them waking up, stretching, as they got out of bed.
“Good morning.” Quillwrite said, walking to Chrysalis as she walked to him.
“Good morning.” She said, kissing Quillwrite which he returned.
The two of them walked out the bedroom and headed down to the kitchen. Once there, Quillwrite began taking out ingredients for pancakes. As he began mixing the ingredients, Chrysalis walked through the living area and towards the picture of them kissing. Smiling at the picture and the moment it had happened. She had taken him by surprise and kissed him on the lips. She remembered the look on his face before he returned the kiss. Her thoughts about the kiss were broken from the smell the pancakes being made. She walked back into the kitchen and saw Quillwrite putting a short stack of pancakes on two different plates for them while Timber ate his usual bowl of berries.
“Breakfast is ready.” He said, putting a bit of butter and syrup on top of both stacks.
“They smell delicious.” She said, walking to the table.
She levitated a fork and took a bite, savoring the taste.
“They taste delicious too.” She said, taking another bite.
“Thanks, I used to help my mom with the baking when I was younger.” He said, taking a bite of his own. “The best part was licking the spoon after we were done.”
“I bet.” Chrysalis giggled, taking another bite. “So, what do you have planned for today?”
“Don’t know maybe I’ll go see how Lone Wolf and ArrowsEye are doing and maybe we can do something together tonight.” Quillwrite said, taking a bite of his pancakes.
“I see, maybe we could have a nice dinner at home.” She suggested.
“Sounds good, but what’re going to do for the day?” He asked.
“Rarity has been asking me if I would like to go to the spa with her and Fluttershy.” She said. “I think I’ll join her for a spa day before we have dinner tonight.”
“Sounds like a good plan for today.” He said.
After they finished eating and cleaned the dishes, they got cleaned up and ready for the day. Quillwrite and Chrysalis kissed before he left for Lone Wolf’s place and she left to meet Rarity at the spa, Timber went with Quillwrite. While walking, Quillwrite thought about all that had happened during those couple of weeks, Twilight had taken a student named Starlight Glimmer, Cadence and Shining Armor had a daughter, Rainbow Dash officially became a Wonderbolt. He had also attended an amazing magic show performed by a mare calling herself The Great and Powerful Trixie with Starlight as her assistant and best friend. Chrysalis even heard about a changling named Thorax that she decided to meet at the hive to hear about his little adventure in the Crystal Empire. Halfway to Lone Wolf’s; he saw his sister playing with a group of fillies called the Cutie Mark Crusaders. He remembered them as Applejack’s and Rarity’s sisters, Applebloom and Sweetie Belle, and Rainbow Dash’s biggest fan, Scootaloo. Seeing them play together reminded him of when he and Wing Saber were little. As soon he saw Lone Wolf’s home, he headed to the door and knocked.
“Hello?” Lone Wolf asked as he opened the door to see Quillwrite. “Oh, hey, Quill, how are you doing?”
“I’m fine, about you?” Quillwrite asked.
“I’m doing alright.” Lone Wolf answered. “I’ve had a few ponies sign up for art and photography classes.”
“That’s great, I was about to head to ArrowsEye’s new home if you want to join.” Quillwrite said.
“Sure, I’ve been wondering how it looks.” Lone Wolf said, locking and closing his door.
They walked to a clearing that had a single tree that was the size of a two story house. The branches had grown upwards, giving the appearance of walls while a column like branch grew from the middle, the leaves grown to make a roof. Around the column branch was the platform of the tree to make like a floor. At the base was a door leading to the main room of the tree. Outside, beside the tree was an archery range.
“Wow, this is amazing.” Lone Wolf said. “It’s only been a month and ArrowsEye’s home is already fully grown.”
“Yeah, all it took was a single seed and a spell cast from alicorn magic.” Quillwrite said as they walked towards the home.
When they reached the front door, Quillwrite knocked and heard hoofsteps until the door opened.
“Hey, guys, what’s up?” ArrowsEye asked.
“We wanted to come by and see how you’re enjoying your new home.” Lone Wolf answered.
“It’s really great it makes feel like I’m sleeping outside when I go to bed.” ArrowsEye said with a smile.
“I can imagine so.” Quillwrite said. “So, would you like to join us on a little outing today?”
“Sure, I’ve been meaning to stop by Sugarcube Corner.” ArrowsEye said.
When three of them reached the town, Quillwrite and Lone Wolf headed for the Café to pick up a cup of coffee to go while ArrowsEye went to Sugarcube Corner for some cupcakes. After a few minutes they met back at the town square and enjoyed the day as it progressed.
“So what do feel like doing for lunch?” Quillwrite
“I could go for a hay burger.” ArrowsEye said.
“Yeah, that’s sounds good to me.” Lone Wolf said.
“Alright, hay burgers it is.” Quilwrite said as they waited for lunch.
Ponyville Day Spa 8:01 A.M.
After she and Quillwrite left the library, Chrysalis walked to Rarity’s. After knocking on the door and letting Rarity know she was there, they went to Fluttershy’s. When they arrived at Fluttershy’s cottage, they knocked on the door and she answered telling them that she needs to take care of one last thing, which involved her asking Discord to watch over the cottage and to let him know that she already fed her animals. When she was done and had gotten his promise, they left for the spa. Once they walked inside the spa, they were greeted by Lavender Essence, who directed them to the steam room, where they would be for an hour.
“Ah, this is relaxing.” Chrysalis said, wearing a robe that Rarity made her in her colors of black and green with an italics ‘C’. “If I knew how wonderful this is, I would have made peace a long time ago.”
“And this is just the start, darling.” Rarity said, wearing her usual robe.
“It’s nice to relax.” Fluttershy said, wearing a purple and white robe. “I just hope Discord can handle watching the animals.”
“I’m sure he can handle it, Fluttershy, dear.” Rarity said, reassuringly.
After they were done in the steam room, they got hooficures, Rarity and Chrysalis got their horns filed, they got seaweed wraps and mud baths. After they went through the treatments, they were waiting to get massage.
“So tell me, darling, what plans do have?” Rarity asked as they waited.
“Well, when I met with Thorax, we discussed rebuilding the kingdom and the hive.” Chrysalis said.
“I hope it goes well, but how will you get the other changelings to help if they’re at different place in Equestria?” Fluttershy asked.
“Though they are scattered across Equestria, my changlings will always hear their queen’s call.” Chrysalis answered.
“But they would’ve had to disguise themselves if they went to different towns.” Rarity stated. “Surely that would cause some sort of problem, wouldn’t it?”
“It may, but I’m certain that I can figure something out if I get some help.” Chrysalis said. “I had checked the towns that my changelings went to and saw that some of them had walked through town without a disguise, others had used disguises in other towns.”
“I’m sure everything will be fine.” Fluttershy said. “We’ll help out in any way we can.”
“Yes, darling, if you need help, just let us know.” Rarity confirmed.
“Thank you, both of you.” Chrysalis said.
A minute later, Lavender Essence told them that everything was ready for them. Once inside, they hung their robes on the hangers on the wall and lied down on tables. Rarity was getting massaged by Aloe, Fluttershy was getting massaged by Lotus and Chrysalis was getting massaged by Lavender Essence. They all sighed in relaxation as the tension left them.
The Hay Burger 12:17 P.M.
When lunch came around, Quillwrite, Lone Wolf and ArrowsEye walked to the building and each ordered a hay burger, some fries and a medium drink. After they got their food, they walked to an empty table and began eating. After a few bites, Quillwirte told Lone Wolf and ArrowsEye what Chrysalis had planned for rebuilding the hive and Changling Kingdom.
“You realize that when the Changling Kingdom is rebuilt, you’ll probably be King of the Changlings.” ArrowsEye said.
“I don’t know about that.” Quillwrite said.
“He may be right, if you and Chrysalis get married you’d be the King of Changlings, technically.” Lone Wolf said. “Are you planning of proposing to her?”
“Well, I’ve planned on proposing after the kingdom had been rebuilt.” Quillwrite answered as they ate.
“Really, that’s great.” Lone Wolf said before taking another bit. “I wish you both good luck.”
“Same here.” ArrowsEye said, finishing his food.
“Thanks, guys, I appreciate it.” Quillwrite said.
“No problem.” Lone Wolf said.
As they finished their food and left, they left for their homes to go about their business.
The Everfree Forest 1:31 P.M.
Within the forest was an old shack that was big enough for two. Inside was two figures, one sitting by a table with a mug while another, smaller, figure stood by the door. The smaller figure looked like a metal skeleton with saw like hands and a drill or a left leg. His wardrobe consisted of a green long sleeve button up shirt with the sleeves rolled up, a brown vest, black pants with a red sash around the waist and a single brown boot.
“The time be near, Pete.” The larger figure said. “Soon I’ll have me greatest treasure and we’ll be rich once more.”
“Too true, Captain, but are ye sure everything will work out?” Pete asked.
“Of course, the descendant of the one that took me treasure will be the one to help us get it back.” The figure said with confidence.
“Right, Captain.” Pete said.
“Now go and remember to grab him when he is alone.” The figure said, pointing to a pathway to Ponyville with his hook.
“Aye, Captain!” Pete saluted and head straight for the town.
The outskirts of Ponyville 1:47 P.M.
“I hope that the Captain doesn’t do anything drastic.” Pete said as he made his way to Ponyville.
Ponyville 1:51 P.M.
After Quillwrite, Lone Wolf and ArrowsEye had eaten, they left for their respective homes. Quillwrite went inside the library to wait for Chrysalis. While waiting he heard a knock at the door, walking towards it he opened it only to see no one there. He walked outside to get a better look. After a minute of looking, he felt something hit the back of his head before losing consciousness.
“Sorry to get ye dragged into this, chum.” Said Pete as he revealed himself to be the one who knocked out Quillwrite, picking up the unicorn, leaving a note and quickly heading towards the Everfree Forest without being noticed.
After a while, Chrysalis walked back to the library after her day at the spa. She opened the door hoping to find Quillwrite, but could not after checking the rooms. She then noticed the note on the table by the door that read:
If ye wish to see one of your subjects again, then you will returm me treasure, The Oracle’s Eye. We’ll meet at the entrance of the Everfree Forest. Send me a message when you have The Oracle’s Eye.
Sincerely, Captain Ironskull
Chrysalis gasped as she dropped the note and began to write a note to Celestia with tears forming in her eyes.
Canterlot 2:04 P.M.
Celestia was enjoying a cup of tea when a note appearing in front of her. She opened the note and began reading. After reading the note, she took immediate action of replying to the note, writing messages and sending them to the Mane Six, Cadence and Shining Armor. She walked towards the window after the messages were sent.
“I wondered when you would show yourself, Ironskull.” She said.
