“NOOOOO!” Rainbow Dash screamed in horror as she witnessed the hot air balloon’s ropes snap, severing the basket and sending her friends plummeting to the ground below.
Her body was moving on autopilot as she dived towards one of the clouds below until she found one big enough to support all of them.
When she spotted it, she slammed against it with her elbow as she flew around it at top speed, forcing her wings to flap faster and harder despite her body’s protests desperate to prevent them from splattering to the ground due to her stupid recklessness.
Lightning had been quite proud of the tornado they had created to break the academy’s cloud-busting record, but she froze in horror the moment she saw those ropes snap.
She had no idea where those ponies had came from or why they thought it would be smart to interrupt an academy full of Pegasi that frequently practiced dangerous aerial stunts.
But there was one thing she did know-n
TemptationThe night air was cold as she walked down the main street of Cloudsdale. But it didn't bother her, for her mind was far more focused on just how upset she was. Lightning Dust, a green pegasus with blonde hair, and, until just a few hours ago, a recruit at the famed Wonderbolt Academy. was going over the events of the previous day over and over again in her mind. Every time she looked over it, it made no sense to her.Temptation by Thejboy88
She had proved herself to be the best flier in the entire academy, having been praised for her accomplishment and even achieving the rank of squad leader. Becoming a Wonderbolt had been her dream since she was a small filly. And every moment of her life since then she had worked towards becoming one of therm. Training, practicing, making sure that her flying skill was the best it could be, the best that ANYPONY could be. And it seemed as though she just might make her dream come true.
And then, out of nowhere, it all came crashing down. Rainbow Dash, her squad partner and
FlamesAs she looked up at the sky, she felt at peace. Clear weather always had that effect on her, even back when she was a filly. A bright warm warm sun was pleasing to her, as it suited her task here today. Twilight Sparkle, newly crowned princess of Equestria, was sitting on the edge of a house in the sky. A house made from clouds. This was the home of one of her closest friends, the pegasus Rainbow Dash.Flames by Thejboy88
And speaking of whom, a sound from behind alerted Twilight to her presence. The purple mare turned to see the blue pegasus approach. She walked up to the young princess and stood next to her, staring out into the sky as she did.
"Ready?" She asked.
"I am." She replied.
Twilight took a deep breath and stretched out her wings as wide as she could make them. It had only been a few weeks since she gained these wings, and with them the power of flight. But in that time she had received a fair amount of training in that skill by Rainbow, who was undoubtedly one of Equestria's

Lightning Dust was clearly in a fairly bad mood today. But then, she had every right to be, given her surroundings. For this was not the green and lush field of Equestria. No, this was a place few ponies ever came, or even knew that much about. A vast dry expanse of barren rocks, mud and sand, stretching as far as the eye could see. It was hot. It was unpleasant. It was the last place anypony would ever want to find themselves if they had the choice.
This was the kind of place mares would want their children about. The stereotypical place "bad little ponies" would go. In truth nopony would ever be so cruel as to send one of their own out here. For this was not a place for the feint of heart. Those who came out here only ever knew hardship. And those were the lucky ones, for this place was known to be the home of terrible beasts and other horrors that rivalled even the monsters of the Everfree Forest.

One morning in Canterlot, Princess Twilight Sparkle and Princess Celestia are seen in mid-conversation.
"Twilight dear, how do you and your friends feel about life in Equestria now?"
"Well, it’s so exciting! But I believe that's not the reason you've asked me here, right?"
"Princess, what… what happened?"
"The key question is: What does Queen Chrysalis intend to do next?"
"Queen Chrysalis? She's the one who posed as Princess Cadence and admitted to feeding off Shining Armor's magic to take over Canterlot. Didn't Princess Cadence and Shining Armor defeated her?"
"Correct, Queen Chrysalis's takeover failed. However, Shining Armor and Cadence just use their magic to perform a magic shield that only expelled the Queen and her minions from Canterlot."
"Queen Chrysalis is still alive, and she will be poised to acquire more power that we can't even begin to imagine. I’m afraid that not even Prin
