The Simple Life Epilogue ‘All right, an hour and a half, last one.’The Simple Life Epilogue by Gunflame345
Spitfire’s eyes left the clock on the wall and traveled down to the tall glass in front of her. Filled with ice, strawberry bits, red liquid with sugar lining the rim, and a tiny green umbrella, the levitation was one she was quite familiar with. She allowed herself a grin as she leaned down and wrapped her lips around the straw. She winced, a sharp pain from her shoulder a quick reminder of what that filthy changeling had done. She looked down at right foreleg, it was wrapped in a sling and held tight against her chest. It bugged her, but she supposed it could have been worse.
“Train will be leavin’ soon,” Soarin’ muttered in between deep swallows from a frosty mug filled with amber liquid to his own lips.
“I know, last daiquiri,” Spitfire replied. “Promise.”

Foxtrot wasn’t sure what happened.
One second he was sure he was about to meet his end at the fangs of a hundred changelings. Then in the blink of an eye and a blur of bright blue that streaked seemingly in all directions, the entire swarm that had advanced, even those assaulting their comrades, either fell from the sky or collapsed to the where they stood. Upon closer inspection, it appeared that each one of them had been struck by what might as well have been a sledgehammer. None were dead, but they were all in no condition to get back up again, let alone fight.
The wolf glanced about and saw that his comrades were equally confused as the opponents they had once been fighting where no longer a threat. Even the Queen herself, along with Celestia who had been engaged in a sky duel had paused and the bewildered look on the Queen’s face told a tale of Sonic’s deed.

Sonic couldn’t be bothered with the explosion as he was currently staring down a scythe-wielding death machine that was the Ravener. His spin dash didn’t work as well as he hoped, and this monster was a lot stronger than it looked. Which, given that it looked like a something out of his worst nightmares, was saying a lot. But he couldn’t give up, not when others were depending on him. So he balled his fists, readied his legs, and prayed that another homing attack or two would suffice.
However, before he could put his plan into motion, the Ravener drew itself up tall and opened all four of its arms wide. Sonic for the life of him didn’t understand why, as it was giving him the largest available target, but he couldn’t dwell on this for long as a salvo of magical blasts swiftly struck the beast in the dead center of its back side.
It let out a painful shriek a

The beast drew itself up to its full height pushing with its lower body to raise itself tall. It brought back the right uppermost claw, looking to reap Thunderlane as if he was nothing more than a strand of wheat, the charcoal pegasus unable to move as he could only look upon his impending death with frozen terror.
A strong gale whipped past him, almost knocking him from his feet as salvation came.
Sonic planted his right foot on the oversized changeling beast’s lower body, and quickly ran up his snake like body. When he reached the things chest, kicked off, back flipping and catching it in its bony jaw with bicycle kick. The blow forced the beast to stagger as Sonic landed nimbly in front of the group of ponies. As it hissed in frustration from the attack, Sonic threw the elements of harmony to the ground around him and balled his fist, preparing to fight this devil.

A high pitched ring danced in Twilight’s head.
She blinked hard trying to alieve it, but it was for naught as it refused to dull itself. She shook her head and brought a fore hoof to one of her ears to massage it, but it was to no avail. Her mind tried to figure out why the sound was persisting, and came to the conclusion that she was suffering from a mild case of tinnitus. As she slowly tried to drag herself back to her hooves, she could only guess that it had come from the rapid increase and decrease of air pressure around her, probably from the very concussive blast that had sent her sprawling across the football field.
Suddenly there was a change, now in addition to the ringing, she heard the sound of her own breathing. The familiar rhythm of her inhale and exhale were welcome over the ringing but, as she looked around, she found herself not wanting to celebrate thi

Thunderlane raised himself on to two legs and lifted the top half of his uniform to expose his waist as he tucked his wings to his side. The Equestrian Games official wrapped the wing band around his torso, affixing it snugly and latching it shut. After a few testing tugs, the pony nodded to his fellow officiates and moved on to Soarin. Another group looked over Prince Blue Blood’s helmet, making sure the magic dampening material was firmly inserted in the portion that would fit over his horn, before handing it over to him to place onto his head.
Once their team had been checked over, Thunderlane began to lead the team in stretching and light exercises to loosen them all up. All the while butterflies were buzzing about busily in his stomach as for the life of him couldn’t block out the fact that hundreds of thousands of ponies were all watching him and fully half of them were relying on h

“The charges you face today are of the most gravest nature; treason, as well as consorting and aiding dark forces that conspire to insight chaos and cause calamity,” the aged, yet powerful voice that belonged to Lord Graywing echoed throughout the great council chamber. “As such, the crime levied against you is treason. You stand before us, Princess Luna, to face judgment for your acts of betrayal against your people, your kingdom and against this esteemed royal council. You are to understand the only acceptable forms of punishment that can set even the scales of betrayal are death or banishment. Have you any words to say on your defense of these heinous crimes?”
Princess Luna faced him, facing them all, with a silent defiant anger. She stood tall, proud and unafraid under the eyes of the council that were preparing to sentence her. She was vested in her traditional breastplate and horseshoes, her crown firmly upon her head as her eyes looked across the semi-cir

Sonic and Rainbow Dash hurtled through space towards the planet seeking desperately to halt this deadly gambit the Doctor had played. It wasn’t long before they had caught up with Metal Sonic, who had a fist buried deep into one of the warheads, yanking out wires and components before leaping away and watching the large rocket erupt in a small explosion into scrap.
“We must hurry,” the robot announced catching sight of the two of them. “If we can get to the missiles before they reach the upper atmosphere, they won’t have reached their terminal Area of Effect. The nuclear payload will be disengaged before it reaches that distance. I calculate we have less than three minutes to stop them before they reach that point. Move with speed and sense of purpose.” After Metal had given them this instruction, he blasted off to the next rocket.
“You heard the bot Sonic, you need to move with speed, so you better keep up!” Rainbow Dash taunted as she t

“Are you kidding me?” Shadow chuckled. “Metal Sonic? This is your ace in the hole? I will give you some credit Sonic, I did not see this one coming! How did you manage to get bucket head over here on your side?”
“What can I say Shadow?” Sonic smiled back at him. “He wanted to be on the winning team.”
“Wow Sonic, Your definition of winning has changed over the years.” Shadow shot back.
“Metal,” Sonic whispered to his newest ally. “You ready?”
“Affirmative,” he responded in his cold monotone voice.
“You really think this idea will work?” Rainbow Dash questioned.
“Negative. It merely presents the best opportunity for success,” Metal answered.
“Oh, well that’s certainly most reassuring thing I’ve heard all day,” Rainbow Dash commented back sarcastically.
“Prepare to follow my lead,” Metal announced as his thrusters kicked in and gently

Shadow landed in front of Sonic and Rainbow Dash, bringing his hands together and outstretching his palms to crack his knuckles. He then began to massage his right shoulder with his left and as he rotated his right arm in circular motion.
“I’m going high,” Sonic informed the Rainbow Dash.
“Then I’ll hit ‘em low,” she confirmed.
“Oh good, you gotta plan, hope it works out for ya,” Shadow said confidently, before his face twisted into a mischievous grin. “Let’s start this party off with a bang!” he yelled out as he gathered energy in his right hand and hurled a supercharged Chaos Spear at the ground between them. Sonic and Rainbow evacuated their location just as the ground exploded with a fiery blast that sent chunks of rock flying through the air. The two split and went in separate directions, both creating sonic booms in their wake as they left golden and rainbow colored trails behind their respective selves. The

Shattered glass, rocks, and debris were scattered about as a sonic boom erupted in the streets of Baltimare as Shadow flew towards Sonic, right hand cocked back, fist balled tightly, as he closed the gap between himself and his adversary in the blink of an eye and yelled as he unloaded his attack.
Sonic grinned as he rolled his right shoulder back, letting Shadow’s attack sail past him harmlessly and exposing his entire body for a counter-attack. Sonic fired off a punch of his own, aimed at Shadow’s unprotected jaw. However, Shadow saw his attack, blocked by raising his left elbow and letting the blow strike his forearm instead. Sonic gritted his teeth and pushed himself back away from Shadow before flying away from him. Shadow chuckled at Sonic’s quick retreat and gave chase. Sonic ducked and weaved through the city, bouncing off walls, light poles and any other piece of the city he could find footing against. Shadow was hot on his heels, but that was the plan Sonic

“I am Princess Celestia,” she announced to the being in front of her. “Ruler of all Equestria. These atrocities you have committed in my lands are unforgivable, and you will face justice for these crimes!”
“Oh? What are you gonna do? Beat me up with cupcakes and rainbows?” the monster replied with a grin, casually walking closer. “My name is Shadow, and you haven’t even begun to see the ‘atrocities’ I can commit.”
“You will stop!” Celestia shot back at Shadow’s threat of death and destruction. She knew this would not end without violence, but she knew from the reports that he could absorb her magic. Then an idea crossed her mind and she put her plan into motion. “I am the Goddess of the Sun, the most powerful of Alicorns! I have driven evil from these lands once before Shadow; I will not hesitate to use every ounce of power at my disposal to purge you from my kingdom as well!” As she spoke h
|An unlikely friendship forged in the fires of war may be all that will save Equestria! Heroes are made, wills are tested and love is complicated!|
NOW this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,|
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
