The Simple Life Chapter 43 A high pitched ring danced in Twilight’s head.The Simple Life Chapter 43 by Gunflame345
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 this small victory.
The Simple Life Chapter 42 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.The Simple Life Chapter 42 by Gunflame345
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 him to win the game. He thought

Twilight had to appreciate what Shining was able to accomplish in the months he had to improve the field they had planned to host the Equestria games in She wasn’t sure how, but now it was massive. She had reviewed the dimensions prior and before, and before it could only house one hundred and fifty four thousand, however, with the addition of an all-encompassing upper deck. Shining had managed to transform the stadium formally known as the Crystal Downs into something truly to gawk at and aptly renamed it ‘The Superdrome’. For now it sported the ability to comfortable seat two hundred and sixty thousand screaming ponies. Their excited cries easily sending a wave of nervousness through the small alicorn’s body forcing her to ruffle the feathers of her new wings and the thick as the concreate they walked through reverberated.
“You alright Twi?”

“What We simply do not understand, is why stallions are so predictable? It would seem that without fail no matter the era, upbringing or age of the stallion, they all seem driven to aim for Our cuite mark.”
“Well you know what they say sister, shoot for the moon.”
“Thou doth sound utterly ludicrous, why would they say that?”
“Simple, because even if a stallion were to miss, they’d land amongst that star filled mane of yours,” Celestia chuckled.
“We see that thou wordplay is still as sharp as any sword it would seem,” Luna responded with an annoyed frown as her sister managed to spin the popular phrase around at her expense. “Still, it befuddles Us, in the times we had escorted Thunderlane, as well any another to the bed chamber, the resulting climax

“And that’s the gist of it Princess,” Sonic concluded as he finished recounting his tale of his failed attempt at disarming the nuclear warhead from within Graywing’s Castle. “So the reason I’m here, is because I need your help. “ The blue hedgehog sighed, it wasn’t an easy thing to ask, at least not for him. “I will do whatever it takes to stop it, but I don’t think I can do it, that Metal and I can do it, on our own. We need your help to stop this weapon, so,” Sonic fidgeted slightly as he realized he was rambling, “Will you help us?”
Celestia had sat and listened to the hedgehog’s tale, not once taking her eyes away from him for the entire duration of his story nor his plea for aid. She had sat, listened and not once interrupted as she took in all that he had to say and only now that he was finished did she move. S

Luna greeted them at the entrance to Canterlot Castle when the group in its entirety managed to gather and approach the pony capitol building. It took a little bit of soothing to calm down the nerves of Twilight Sparkle, for they were a few minutes late and she had already begun to hyperventilate. Luckily, it would seem that Celestia’s prior appointment before their scheduled arrival had managed to spill over its allotted time, this being the case, their tardiness would go unnoticed. Armed guards parted without so much as an errant glance at neither Foxtrot, Sonic, nor Metal as they entered and one could only surmise it was because of prior a briefing they had all received so they would know to expect them.
The group followed the blue Alicorn throughout the castle halls on their way to meet the princess in relative silence, save for small time chatter amongst themselves regarding their surround

“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

Rainbow Dash opened her eyes to see a gleaming silver spear ripping through the wolf's chest and his fresh blood dripping down on to her chest. A moment later he was hoisted up into the air, still whimpering and tossed aside. Dash was bewildered at the sight, even more at her savior.
Soarin' turned his attention to the griffon that was now dive-bombing towards him. He swung his spear and its bladed tip caught the griffon in the chest sending it careening off with a spurt of red mist arcing across the sky. The griffon stood back up and launched towards the Wonderbolt. Soarin' switched his grip on the spear and hurled at the griffon. His aim was true, it buried itself deep in the beast's sternum. Panting heavily he turned to see if Dash was okay.
"Soarin'?! Soarin' how did you-"
"Derpy found me and told me you needed help, I came as fast as I could..."

“Whatever,” she replied loudly while rolling her eyes. “Fact is, he’s got no wings and he can’t swim, he’s not even a pony.” Then, with an evil grin at Soarin’, she drove her point home. “If he were my foal, I would have drowned him at birth.”

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.
