Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 35


The crowd of ponies cheered as the fliers lined up. Paradox looked over at his mother-in-law as he stretched at the starting line. Rainbow Dash looked back at him. “Just because you’re my daughter’s husband doesn’t mean I’ll go easy on you.”

“You’re also a grandmother to twins.” He answered and she gave him a stern stare. He gave her a smug grin in return.

Other fliers looked at them, at each other and shrugged. A couple were gryphons, one was a young dragon and three more ponies. Celestia stepped out and waved to the crowd the cheering from the crowd increased and quickly quieted down when Celestia raised her hoof.

“Thank you. I am happy so many of you came out today to watch this race. This race is for various charities here, across Equestria and surrounding kingdoms. To help all that need help. I hope for a fair and fun race. We have the fastest fliers in Equestria and surrounding kingdoms.” The fliers all waved and bowed. Paradox just waved at Silver, she waved back at him and her mother as she stood next to the baby carriage. “Now fliers, on your mark!” Paradox stood at his place same with Rainbow Dash and the others. “Get set!” They all crouched down eyes focused ahead. “Go!” Celestia shouted.

The fliers took off like a shot and Paradox as well as Rainbow Dash flew ahead of them easily. “I imagine you are tired already.” Rainbow Dash asked him as she flew around him.

Paradox looked at her. “I’m not tired at all. You sound winded… are you feeling your age?” He asked her as they flew through the first mile marker cloud together.

“Not even close to feeling winded.” She retorted as she flapped her wings and passed him.

Paradox let her fly ahead and set his pace he didn’t want to lose steam as the race went. He let the gryphons pass him by but didn’t allow the dragon or the other ponies get ahead of him.

Silver watched her mother at the head of the race and looked for Paradox. She saw him and let out a sigh at where he was in the race.

The announcer pony was giving all the details over the PA system. “Paradox the draconequus is letting his competition pass him by. Our own Rainbow Dash is ahead of the pack. Wait. Here comes the gryphon Havok; he’s catching up to Rainbow Dash.”

Rainbow looked behind her and saw the gryphon flying up behind her. “I don’t think so.” She whispered as she pumped her wings. She smiled satisfied when the gryphon was left far behind her.

“We are getting closer to the last lap and there is some movement.” The announcer continued. “What is this? Paradox is making a move!”

Silver gasped as she watched as Paradox casually flew around the gryphons as if they weren’t moving. “Come on Doxy. You can do it.” She whispered.

Paradox pumped his wings as he passed the gryphons they looked at him and frowned. “I’m just flying like I usually do.” He said to them.

He flew up behind his mother-in-law without a word and effortlessly flapped his wings as he caught up to her. “Hey. You’d think I’d disappoint my wife if I didn’t at least come in second to you?”racing

Rainbow Dash looked at him. “Dox, you know I adore you but no way am I going to let you come in first.”

“I guess we’ll see what happens.” He grinned as they flew side by side.

Rainbow Dash nodded as she kept pace with him.

“It’s neck and neck! Rainbow Dash and Paradox! This is so exciting!” The announcer shouted over the cheers of the gathered ponies.

Silver watched as both her husband and mother went zooming past the finish line. She didn’t know who was first. She blinked. “Who won?”

“This is totally unprecedented. Both Paradox and Rainbow Dash crossed the finish line at the same time. We have to look at the photo to see who really won.” The announcer sounded shocked.

The other racers went through the line and the gryphon Havok got third place.

Paradox and Rainbow Dash flew up and landed close to Havok and the announcer as Celestia looked at the photo. Celestia looked up from the photo and smiled. “This is amazing.” She whispered and then talked to one of the race officials. Rainbow Dash sat and didn’t look winded at all. Paradox was shaking and breathing heavy as he looked around for his wife.

Silver flew up with the baby carriage and landed close to him and her mother. “Mom! Doxy!” She said.

“Hey Silver.” He smiled at his wife as she approached him.

“You’re sweaty.” Silver giggled as she hugged him. “Just like the way you get in bed.” She whispered.

He grinned as he gave her a small kiss. “Don’t be naughty… we’re in the presence of royalty and your mother.”

She nodded and hugged her mother. “You did great mom. You and Doxy both did.”

“I’ve got to admit it, Dox gave me good competition.” Rainbow Dash smiled.

“The winner of the race has been determined. By just a hair…” Princess Celestia said loudly. “Rainbow Dash came in first. Lord Paradox was second. The gryphon Havok third.”

There was cheering and Rainbow Dash jumped up and cheered for herself. “Oh! Yeah! I still got it!”

Silver and Paradox clapped for her. “Congratulations mom.” Silver replied and looked at Paradox. “Congratulations Paradox.”

He looked at her and blushed. “I tried my best. Your mother is tough.” He suddenly stumbled back when Rainbow Dash flew down and hugged him. “Whoa!”

“Way to go! You gave me great competition! Thank you Dox!” She exclaimed and stopped hugging him when she realized her daughter was looking at her smugly. “Ahem… Good job.” She cuffed his shoulder.

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 27


Silver and Paradox were behind the curtains of the palace west wing. Paradox held Silver tightly to him as they kissed deeply. He moved his paw up her back as he gripped her rump with his other paw.

Silver kissed him deeply her tongue intertwined with his as she hugged his neck. She wanted him so badly tonight, she wondered if it was the food, but during dinner he kept teasing her putting his paw between her legs and giving her a mischievous grin.

Princess Luna and Princess Celestia talked about Silver becoming a higher rank of officer in the royal guard. As they did Paradox was starting to become concerned. “What about her family?”

“Family is always a first priority Lord Paradox.” Princess Celestia replied.

“Yes. We have many trustworthy guards and if need arises Silver has an opportunity to spend time with family. Always.” Princess Luna added.

“It’ll be great Doxy. More pay and more time to be around you and the fillies.” Silver smiled.

“Good.” He replied as he rubbed her leg with his paw. He wanted to give her a kiss, but felt really shy doing it in front of the princesses. They had turned their attention to another pony at the table. Some Wonder Bolts were present at the dinner party as well. He wondered why his mother in law wasn’t there. Silver had told him, but he couldn’t remember; he just knew that he wanted his wife badly.

After the party they were walking down the west wing when he had grabbed her and pulled her behind the curtains. He moved his paw up between her wings as he pushed her up against the wall.

He pulled from the kiss both panting as they looked into each others eyes. “I want you.” He whispered.

“Dox.” She replied. Her heart was beating loudly in her chest.Lovinsilver

He moved both paws behind her rump holding her against the wall. She put her legs around his hips as he kissed her again. He moved his hips and rubbed against her.

Her eyes widened and she let out a gasp of pleasure breaking the kiss as he pushed his arousal deeply into her. “Ah Doxy yes…” Her body shook in pleasure.

“So tight. Silver!” He moaned as he pushed into her tightness.

Her body quivered as he pushed up into her. He growled as he bit on her neck and started to thrust roughly up into her. “Ah! Yes!” She gasped out as she hit orgasm.

“Mmm… Yes…” He moaned lustfully as he pushed into her deeply and released his pent up desires into her.

She shuddered as she came again. “Oh gods. I love you Doxy…”

He was panting as he looked at her. “I don’t know what came over me. I need you badly. I want to…” He growled as he started to push into her again. “I need to make love to you again…” He moaned out.huff
Silver gasped as he started to mate with her so soon. “Ah Doxy…”

“Need you. Want you.” He growled softly as he pushed deeper into her. “Silver… gods… I can’t stop. You feel so wonderful.”

She panted with lust as he thrust hard into her. He pumped up hard and fast and it made her head swim with dizziness. “Doxy, please don’t stop.”

“So tight so good so…” He grunted as he pushed into her rough and hard. “Come for me.”

She moaned in pleasure the hallway echoed with her moans. The guards on either end of the hall blushed because they knew what Paradox and Silver were doing… “Doxy! Yes!” She exclaimed as she came hard.

“Yes! Oh yes my goddess… my true love!” Paradox growled loudly as he gripped her possessively against him as he exploded deeply into her.

“Gods! YES!” They said in unison.

They both panted together as they slid to the floor. He pulled from her as he held and kissed her gently. “Doxy. I love you so much.” She whispered.

“Silver. You’re the world to me.” He said as he looked at her. “You’re beautiful.”

They both got up slowly as they made themselves look presentable again. Silver walked out from behind the curtains first and looked down the hallway. “Come on.”

The guards acted as if they hadn’t heard anything.

Paradox emerged and smiled at her. “I guess we should head back to our room and see how our foals are.”

She nodded. “Yes. Of course.”

They walked together calmly down the hallway and past the guards. Paradox grinned at one of the guards showing off his fangs. The guard watched him and gulped as the door closed to the hallway. The unicorn guard looked to the other guard. “I once had to guard Lord Paradox when he was ill. He has changed a lot since then.”

The other guard blinked. “I am jealous. I’ve always had a crush on Lieutenant Silver Dash. Now I feel very inadequate.”

Couple months later.

The crowd of ponies made him nervous. Paradox stood to the side and watched as the procession went by. His wife Silver was standing next to him and he had their children in a couple baby slings. As the ponies started to disperse a stallion walked over to Silver and started to talk to her.

“Hey young mare, what brings you to Canterlot?” the stallion asked as he blatantly was hitting on her.

Paradox grabbed Silver and started to growl possessively. “She’s here with her husband and daughters.”mywife

The stallion looked at Paradox in surprise. “Oh uhh. I… didn’t notice you um…” He ran off.

Silver looked at Paradox. “I could have told him…”

He let her go. “Sorry Silver. I just get nervous when I feel threatened. You’re so beautiful and I’m… me.”

“Doxy, you know I love you. No other stallion would turn my head.” She looked at him as she faced him. “Ever since I was a little filly. I had been infatuated with you.”

“Silver… I feel as if I did wrong by ignoring you those many years ago.” He whispered.

Silver leaned against him. “Water under the bridge. Come on, we’re invited to the palace. We need to get there soon. They’ll be having dinner in a couple hours.” She spread her wings out and he did the same holding the twins against his chest tightly. They both took off flying towards the palace.


A guard saluted Silver. “Lieutenant Silver, Ma’am; Princess Celestia has assigned a nanny for the evening.”

Silver looked shocked. “A nanny? Why?”

“The dinner party is going to run late, and Princess Celestia doesn’t want the twins to be up too late at night.” The guard answered.

“Selene is a night owl.” Paradox said as he looked at the twins in the ornate crib, they were sleeping soundly. “I guess they’ll be okay for one night as long as the nanny is reliable.”

“Alright, but I want to know if anything happens. Anything.” Silver said to the guard.

The guard saluted again. “Yes ma’am. I’ll send the nanny over.”

“Where is the bride and groom?” Pinkie and Sprinkle said in unison. Both mother and daughter were pacing opposite one another as they waited.

“Don’t worry so much.” Fluttershy said as she held Snafu and watched Pinkie and Sprinkle pace. “They know about the reception. They’ll be here.”

Twilight helped Celestia walk into the ballroom. “Just sit here Princess, I’ll be right back with some tea for you.”

Luna walked over to her sister. “How are thee?”

Celestia looked at her sister. “I could be better. I shouldn’t have let you and Twilight talk me into coming to the wedding. I’m exhausted by just sitting up.”

“’Tis was best ye had been here. The ponies respect thee and seeing thee has made them less frightened on the future of the kingdom.” Luna stated as she sat with her sister. “Discord has been a good replacement until thou returns. There was never a doubt that ye would return.”

“There wasn’t? Twilight told me that she thought she’d almost lost me.” Celestia said.

“Twilight is very excitable sister. Is one of the reasons why we didn’t choose her for thou’s replacement.” Luna said calmly. “In a few more years, she may be a better choice.”

Celestia nodded as she looked at Twilight as she came back to the table. “I agree with you Luna.”

‘Silver is so beautiful why would she even want me? Oh she’s right next to me looking at me, oh I’m so scared, and I’m going to start freaking out. I’m going to…’ the thoughts ran through Paradox’s mind quickly.

Luna spread out her wings and smiled. “We are gathered here to unite two souls. Who is giving this lovely bride away?”

“I am.” Big Mac answered. He looked at Paradox. “Ya take care of her.” Paradox nodded.

There was a loud bawling from the front row of the seating. Every pony looked and saw Rainbow Dash bawling while Rarity pat her on the back. “Darling you’re making a scene.”

“My little girl!” Rainbow Dash cried. “She is so beautiful! Waaah!”

Silver grinned then whispered. “Mom… geez.”

“Okay, I’m okay.” Rainbow Dash muttered as she sniffled and Big Mac went to sit down next to her. She leaned on him and started to sniffle again. “Mac! Our daughter’s getting married!” She started crying again as she hugged him.

He patted Rainbow Dash. “Eeyup. Calm down Dash.”

Apple Jack leaned forward because she was sitting behind them. “How come ya’ll kept this a secret from me?” She whispered.

“You never asked.” Rainbow Dash whispered in between sobs.

“Ahem.” Luna continued. “These two lovely young souls are committed to be wed this lovely evening, Young Lord Paradox and Young Lieutenant Silver Dash.” She smiled at both of them. “If there is a pony who thinks these two should not be wed thou shall speak now, or be forever silent.”

Discord sat up and looked at the audience menacingly. No pony said anything.

Silver was looking at Paradox and he was looking at her. She saw him shaking slightly but he stared at her intently with his deep azure eyes. She was marrying him, she’ll wake up next to him, hug him and kiss him daily. She loved him so much.

Paradox was shaking so much. He shook his paws a bit because he felt sweaty in between his pads. He looked at her as she stood there and saw her eyes, she was looking into his. Her eyes beautiful pools of silver and magenta. He wanted to kiss her, he needed to kiss her.

Luna smiled and looked at Paradox. “Do thou Paradox take Silver to be your wife?”

Paradox blinked when he realized that Luna was talking to him. “Huh?”

Luna tried not to giggle. “Do thou take Silver to be your wife?”

“Oh! Gods yes! How can I not? She’s smoking hot!” He said.

Luna’s eyes widened. “Hmm, well then ye said yes.” She looked at Silver Dash. “Do thou take Paradox to be your husband?”

Silver blushed as she nodded. “Yes. I do.”

“The rings?” Luna said.

Crispin handed Paradox the ring, and Sprinkle Icing gave Silver a ring.

“The exchanging of rings to bind the souls together, to symbolize their bond. The circle is to represent the eternal love they have for one another. These two souls have consented to the arrangements of the ceremony we give all in attendance; Mr. and Mrs. Paradox. Mare and Draconequus. Ye can kiss thou’s wife.” Luna stepped back.

Paradox pulled Silver to him and kissed her deeply.weddingkissSilver melted into his kiss as he pulled her close to him. It was as if they were the only two in the room. She didn’t hear the noise of ponies cheering all she cared about was he was now her husband. When they stopped kissing he just looked into her eyes and smiled. “I love you.”

“I love you too.” She whispered back as she blushed. “My Doxy.”

He leaned up to her ear. “I cannot begin to tell you how pent up I am. Gods…”

She blushed. “Oh my goodness Doxy. We still have to go to the ballroom for the reception.”

He grinned at her. “Hmm, I know.”

The wedding procession started to file out of the throne room and Paradox was becoming anxious. He glanced at his father.

Discord smiled at his son. He made a motion with his paw and claw as if he was lifting something and he jogged in place. Paradox blinked. Discord sighed; he disappeared and then reappeared on Paradox’s shoulder dressed as an angel and in a miniature size. “Pick up your wife and run for it.” He said.

“What? Why?” Paradox asked.

“Dox, do I need to draw you a picture?” He asked as he pointed at Silver Dash. “Pick up your wife and disappear then show up in the ballroom later.”

“Oh… OH!” He grinned as he picked Silver up. Discord disappeared from his shoulder.

“Doxy! What’re you doing?” Silver giggled.

“I’m taking you.” He said as they disappeared and then reappeared at his old bedroom. His bed was made as he walked her over to it and set her down on it.

“Taking me?” She asked him.

“Oh yes. You’re my wife.” He whispered to her. “I just want to… start the honeymoon early.”

She smiled at him. “Doxy, I’m in my wedding dress, I don’t want to ruin it.”

“I’ll be careful. I…” He looked at the dress and tilted his head. “How do I get it off of you?”

She started to giggle. “After we go to the reception I’ll take it off for you.”

“Aww, Silver, you’re teasing me.” He muttered. “I want you bad.”

“Believe me Doxy, I want you too, but it’s not good to avoid your own party. I’ll make it up to you.” She motioned him over to her.

He got closer to her. “Yes?”

She took her hoof and pulled his tuxedo pants down to reveal his arousal. “Oh, is that for me?” She asked.

Paradox nodded as he looked down at her. “Yes. Silver, I ache just to be in you. Oh gods…” He moaned out when she rubbed her hot tongue on his tip.

Silver opened her mouth more as she rubbed her tongue slowly over his tip and then down his shaft, she kissed him softly then took him gently into her mouth.

“Uhh, mmm, gods Silver.” He shuddered as he thrust his hips to her, pushing himself deeper into her hot mouth.SFT

She looked up at him as she sucked him into her mouth and pulled back letting him push into her mouth again. Her tongue caressed rubbing over and around his shaft as she slowly pulled back sliding him out and slowly sucked him back in.

He was panting with pleasure as she worked her mouth over him. Every sensation of her tongue causing a shock of pleasure through his body. “Oh, I’m going to burst.” He moaned out and looked down at her.

She opened her mouth as she licked his tip again rubbing her tongue around his head and over the ridge of the tip she lapped up the precum and closed her mouth around him again.

“Uhh… Silver your mouth… ah.” He shuddered all over. Every nerve in his body was ultra-sensitive and he jolted when she took him deeply into her throat and ran her tongue along the bottom of him as she pulled back. She started to move her mouth as to stimulate him thrusting into her. He knew the pattern and started to push and pull on his own as his orgasm built up.

She let him take over but she continued to move her tongue around and against him, letting him push into her deep as she felt him swell, she relaxed her throat as he panted and moved faster.

Paradox placed his paw on her head. “Oh… uhh… ffff… Silver!” He growled as he pushed deeply into her muzzle and released his pent up desires.

Silver started to swallow his heated desires tasting him as he emptied into her mouth and down her throat. When he was done she pulled back still swallowing him and slowly cleaning his member with her tongue. “Do you feel less pent up?” She asked him as she licked her lips.

“Oh yes…” He moaned as he looked at his beautiful bride. “I think I can cope until later.”

Celestia was sitting next to Twilight, she had a bandages around her wings but she was awake and smiling. “Are you sure that Luna can do this ceremony?”

“You’re recovering from being in a deep coma I think your sister can handle this.” Twilight stated. “I am so glad you’re back though. I missed you.”

“I am glad you and the others never gave up on me.” She whispered. “From what I see even Discord was able to keep himself under control.”

Twilight laughed. “I think you have Fluttershy to thank for that. Every time he got too rambunctious she stepped in and told him what she thought.”

Celestia started to laugh. “Oh, I should allow him to take over more often.”

Twilight gasped. “You’re not serious are you?”

Celestia started to giggle. “Of course I am. I love the way Discord stirs things up.”

Twilight blinked at her. “Um… you do?”

“Yes. I’m glad he and his children are here and even better that they have helped me recover. I still don’t think I’ll be ready until another month.”

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 107


Blinking his eyes Discord was standing in a hallway of dream doors. One door opened and Luna walked out. “Greetings Element of Chaos. First we shall find Twilight.”“Sure thing Luna.” Discord replied as he looked at the doors.

Luna walked along the hallway leading him towards one door. She placed a hoof on it then looked back at him. “Please do not judge Twilight on this dream she is having a very difficult time adjusting. The wisp from the Spring of Eternity has planted a thought in her that she cannot shake.”

He grinned. “She had told me about some of the things she had dreamt.”

Luna opened the door after nodding. “Now thou will see.”

They both walked in a room that was lit in mint green light. A bed was in the middle of the room and there was a figure tied to it with leather restraints and some chains. Twilight was standing on the bed over the restrained figure.

“Very interesting.” Discord said as his eyebrow went up.

Twilight gasped as she turned around and saw Luna and Discord. “Oh, um I can explain…” The figure on the bed was Twilight’s image of Discord restrained. Her cheeks were bright red as she looked at the real Discord.

“Never mind this.” Luna stated as she moved her hoof and Twilight’s dream faded. “We need thou. We are quite thankful for ye’s help.”lunasmile1She kept blushing as she trotted over to them. “Yes.”

Discord had a smirk on his face as he looked at her. “You think I’d actually allow you to do that to me?” He asked finally.

Twilight looked at him and practically fell over when he held his paw and claw up in leather restraints. “I… um…”discordchained

He made the restraints disappear. “Don’t worry Twilight, I’m just teasing you.”

Luna paused at another door. “We are there. Thou prepared?”

Discord took in a deep breath. Twilight formed her LillyRose disguise as Luna opened the door.

Celestia was sitting at a table with a darkened figure. She had a gag in her mouth and she looked at them with fear in her eyes. When she saw LillyRose and Discord she started to shake her head fast as tears formed in her eyes.

The shadowy figure stood up. “Well, thissss issss not what I expected. Luna you have decided to give me sssomething that I had desssired? How generoussss.”

Discord stepped forward. “It was my idea. I decided to join you. Only if you release Princess Celestia.”

“Excellent.” The shadow slowly approached Discord. “What of your daughter here?” It turned to look at Twilight disguised as Lilly.

Discord shook his head. “You don’t want her. She no longer carries the foal you wish to corrupt.”

The figure started to melt a bit turning into a mist and started to slowly wrap around Discord’s legs. “So be it then. Celestia will no longer be possessed by me, I shall take you over. Then after, I’ll convince the rest of your family to join me.”

Discord grit his teeth as the shadow started to run up around his body. He looked over at Celestia as Luna and Twilight, still looking like Lilly, untied her. They both moved as fast as they could, getting Celestia away from the shadow’s influence.

Celestia watched him being taken over. “Don’t let it take you…” She said suddenly as she shrugged out of Luna’s grasp.

“Keep back Tia… it’s the only way…” Discord muttered as the shadow twisted around his waist. “I want you to be safe. Go Celestia. Save yourself…”

Outside the dream.

Celestia awoke and she looked around her room in a panic. Twilight was snuggled in a bed and she saw Luna sitting in her trance-like state when she enters dreams. Right next to Luna was Discord who was twitching oddly.

Celestia started to get up from her bed to go over to her sister and Discord. She fell out of the bed and onto the floor, her legs were so weak. She winced because she had also twisted one of her wings.celestiaawakens

“Discord… Luna… Don’t let it…” she crawled to them. “No… I’d rather be possessed than let it have chaotic magic…” She reached out to them and Discord’s eyes opened.

“Tia?” He looked at her. “Look at you, you’re awake. Long time no see.”

She looked up at him with wide eyes. “Discord? Are you alright?”

He stretched his wings out. “Never better. Now you shouldn’t be on the floor like that.” He stood up and carefully picked her up and walked her back to her bed. “Little steps, you’ve been comatose for a long time. You need to gradually exercise.” He looked at her hurt wing and magically wrapped it in bandages.

Luna awoke from her trance blinking several times and looked over at Discord tucking Princess Celestia in bed. “Thou accomplished it!” She said as she spread her wings and quickly went over to them. “Sister! We are so happy ye is back!” She hugged Celestia and hugged Discord to his surprise.

Twilight sat up in bed. “Did it work?”

“No.” Discord snickered as he looked at her. “The plan failed and Luna is hugging me…”

She looked at him and then saw Celestia awake and coherent. She got out of bed and flew over to them. “Princess Celestia, I’m so happy you’re awake. I was so worried…” she hugged her mentor tightly.

Celestia was shocked by the hug from Luna and Twilight. She looked at Discord. “How did? What happened? Before I awoke you were being taken over…”

“You only thought I was being taken over. I wasn’t really.” He started to laugh. “The demon made a mistake by trusting its eyes.”

“It tried to take me.” Twilight stated. “I was disguised as Discord… when it took me over I was able to defeat it and send it back to Tartarus.”

“Yes, I was actually disguised as LillyRose.” Discord snickered.

Celestia gave him a tight hug to his surprise. “Thank you.” She looked up at him.

“Hey, no big deal. Sorry it took so long to figure it out.” He said as he gave her a gentle hug back. “You need to take it easy though. You twisted your wing and have a bruise on your neck from falling out of the bed.” He stepped away from the three Princesses.

“Yes. We are so glad thou is feeling better.” Luna sniffled. “We shall help in the recovery process.”

“I need to check on Fluttershy and the baby.” Discord said as he started to gradually leave the room.

“A baby?” Celestia asked. “How long was I out?”

“I need to talk with you Discord.” Twilight stated as she left Celestia’s side to walk out of the room with Discord. Luna started to explain to Celestia all the things that transpired while she was comatose.

“What is it Twilight?” He asked as he looked at her.

Twilight hugged him suddenly. His ears went up in shock then he gently hugged her back. “Thank you.” She said softly. “I am so happy that you came up with that plan. I wouldn’t have ever thought of it.”

He shrugged as he let her go from the hug and he leaned over to look into her eyes. “I couldn’t have done it without you.”

She smiled with a blush and she kissed him on his lips. He blinked as his ears went up in shock. He didn’t kiss back but stared at her. She felt her cheeks burning with a blush. “Thanks again.” She whispered timidly and looked away.

He stood up slowly and licked his lips. “You’re welcome…” He quickly turned around, glanced at her again before snapping his fingers to disappear.

“I believe I have figured it out.” Discord stated as he, Luna and Twilight left the room where his wife and daughter were recovering from giving birth. “We have been going about this shadow business at the wrong angle.”

“We are open to any ideas thou may present to us.” Luna said as she looked at him.

“I believe Celestia is still possessed, but not with the shadow that possessed you Luna, but she is possessed by a lesser demon.” He started to grin. “And I think I know how to lure it away.”

“What are you thinking?” Twilight asked warily.

He started to laugh more. “I’m going to offer myself to it.”

Both Luna and Twilight looked at him.

“Don’t you both start talking me out of it at once. The outpouring of your concern is overwhelming.” He said sarcastically as he made a face.

Luna looked at him directly. “We do not think it is wise for thou to do this. Thou is quite powerful; we would hate to have to punish thou for something ye cannot help.”

Discord looked at her in surprise. “I think I can overpower this lesser demon, but I’ll need your help Luna. Same with you Twilight.”

“Me?” Twilight asked. “Why me?”

“You see, this lesser demon I believe is working for my brother. My brother is a stronger demon in Tartarus and cannot leave that realm without Aidoneus’ permission but is sending this demon to torment my family and initially… the main possession of Celestia was to lure me and my children out to be possessed as well. It didn’t know that LillyRose was as strong as she is.” He looked at Twilight. “You are going to disguise yourself as Lilly in a way to lure this demon out.”

“I don’t know about this Discord.” Twilight said as she swallowed hard.

“We will have to face this demon in the dream realm. In Celestia’s dreams.” Luna said. “We suggest we do it immediately.”

“Yes, I want to do it before Fluttershy finds out.” He suddenly stopped as he looked back at the room where his wife and daughter were resting.

Twilight saw his look of concern. “Are you sure you want to do this? If you are possessed…”

He leaned over to her and placed his finger on her chin. “That is why I am having you and Luna help me. You both have the power to restrain me.”

Twilight started to blush and she pulled away from him. “If you think so.” She still felt uncomfortable with how he made her feel and her image of him in restraints made her feel weird and uncomfortable.

Luna turned. “Twilight, ye must go to bed, as we explained before, thou has to be asleep before ye can enter the dreams of others.” All three of them went down the hall towards Celestia’s bedroom.

They walked in the room and Discord saw Celestia in the bed sleeping serenely. He approached her slowly and looked at her. “She looks peaceful.”sleepingcele

Luna nodded. “Yes, very misleading.” She pointed to another bed. “Twilight we shall try this again like earlier.”

“But what about the box?” Twilight said as she looked more at Discord than at Luna.

“The magic had already been spent.” Luna said. “Thou will have to make due.”

Twilight gulped. “Alright.” She went over to the bed crawled in it and settled down under the blankets.

Discord turned to Luna. “Promise me that if I am possessed and unable to be controlled, you tell Fluttershy and my family that I love them very much.”

Luna smiled. “Ye can tell them after this is done.” Both of them waited until Twilight was asleep. When she was, Luna blinked as her eyes glowed like the moon. Discord hesitantly reached out and touched Celestia’s temple.

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 99


Twilight paced about a hundred feet away from the gate of Tartarus. She kept glancing at it waiting for Discord to emerge. She turned to pace back and ran into him. “Oof!”

“You didn’t have to wait.” He smiled at her, glanced around, picked her up and hugged her. “You’re a good friend. Thank you.”

When he placed her back on the ground she wobbled slightly, fluffed out her wings. “You’re welcome. So what happened? Why are you able to get into Tartarus so easily? Who was talking to you? Did you get whoever to release Celestia? I need to know. Details!”

He sighed. “Twilight you should just ask one question at a time.”

She bit her lower lip and trotted in place. “What happened?”

“I don’t know.” He muttered. “I think there is something else at work here. My children need sleep, we need sleep.” He grinned suddenly at the thought of sleep. “Twilight, did the chaotic buffer work?”

Twilight looked up at him confused. “What is a chaotic buffer?”

He started walking and she walked with him. “It was the box, did it work?”

She blinked. “Luna had brought it to the room when I was asleep. I didn’t dream about you. What is a chaotic buffer?”

He nodded. “Yes. I don’t give that box to just any pony. You wanted me out of your head that was the only solution. Do you feel differently about me now?”

“I don’t think I need to um…” She blushed and looked the other direction.

“Hah. That’s hilarious. You’re thinking about me again.”

“That isn’t fair Discord. How can I not think about you when you’re right in front of me?”

He shook his head. “Sorry Twilight, I guess you aren’t being completely honest with me… Let’s get back to Canterlot. I guess we’ll have to talk more about this later.”

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 94


Luna, Twilight, Discord, Lilly, Paradox and Fluttershy all sat at the table.

“What is going on?” Twilight asked. “Discord, what is this shadow?”

He looked at her. “If I knew that then I could deal with it. As of right now, I have no idea what we are dealing with.”

Luna wrinkled her nose. “The entity was forming a corporal body but before we could discern a shape it had taken Celestia and disappeared.”

“Dad, it’s the demon from my depression! It wants me back. It wants my soul. I don’t want to go back. I don’t. I… feel so helpless.” Paradox gasped out. “Please Dad don’t let it get me.”Comingforme

Discord put his paw on Paradox’s shoulder and squeezed him reassuringly. “I won’t let it near you. You’ll be alright.”

Silver Dash was standing right beside Zero; they both were in their uniforms. “It’ll be alright Doxy.” She whispered.

Zero looked at Silver. “I hope so.” He said to her.

Scarlet Grace walked into the room followed by her husband Flight Strike she had Trouble in her arms. “We came as soon as we could. What happened?”

“Twilight and Luna decided to visit Celestia in her dreams.” Discord muttered. “It didn’t go the way it should have.”

Scarlet Grace blinked. “What?”

Twilight Sparkle sighed and told Scarlet Grace what had happened to get her up to speed.

Fluttershy looked up at her daughter. “Gracie, I think Scarlet needs to place her paw on Luna or Twilight. Maybe she can get a vision of what is going on.”

Flight Strike walked forward. “Oh no. She doesn’t need the stress.”flightstrike

“Flight, it’s ok. I’ll be fine.” She gave him Trouble to hold. “It’s a good thing he’s asleep.” She walked over to Luna. “Princess Luna? May I?”

Luna glanced at every pony in the room and nodded. “Yes.”

Scarlet placed her paw on Luna’s shoulder then looked over at Twilight. “Auntie, I mean… Princess Twilight? May I?”

“Sure.” Twilight nodded, she felt odd that her niece was asking permission to touch her shoulder.

Scarlet placed her claw on Twilight and suddenly let out a soft breath. She started to blink as her eyes clouded over and they glowed white. “Revenge, retribution. He’ll please his master he’ll not be defeated. The unborn. P… Paradox. Make him be who he doesn’t want to be. Corrupt all. The ultimate prize.” She suddenly let go of both of the Alicorn’s and stumbled back. Both Zero and Silver stepped forward and steadied Scarlet Grace. She leaned on them as they led her to the chair close to Flight.

She sat down her eyes still blind as she placed her claw and paw on the table in front of her. She opened her mouth slightly and seemed to be talking to herself, a whispering noise was coming from her lips. She put her head up and gasped loudly several times as if she was needing air. When she looked back down her eyes had turned completely black.

“That is creepy.” Breathed Paradox as he stared at his younger sister.gracetrance“Shush.” LillyRose muttered.

Scarlet stared ahead with her black eyes. She opened her mouth to talk, her voice wasn’t her own. She looked directly at Paradox. “You’re going to come back.” She looked over at Discord. “I… will destroy you.”

Discord growled as he hit the table in front of Scarlet. “Who are you!?”

“You know who I am.” Scarlet growled back. “Don’t be ignorant.”

Discord suddenly frowned. “Get out of my daughter now!”

“Now Discord… You know I am just being filtered through her. Although she is quite comfortable; maybe I’ll stay for a while.”

Flight Strike got up. “NO! Not my Gracie!”

Lilly put her hoof up and made Flight sit back down. “It’s alright Flight, she’s just a vessel right now. She’ll not be harmed.”

Scarlet looks at LillyRose. “You… I underestimated you last time. I know how to get you now… You are just part of the whole.”

Scarlet suddenly gasped loudly and her head went forward and she started to shake as she closed her eyes. Everyone stood up as they watched Scarlet go into a convulsion. She grabbed the table digging her claws into the wood. She put her head back again as she growled. “GET OUT!” She shook again as she put her head against the table. She slowly opened her eyes and they were back to normal.

“Grace.” Flight Strike said to her as he gave her a kiss on her muzzle. “Are you alright?”

Grace looked at every pony staring at her. “I think I passed out. Sorry.”

Discord suddenly sat down heavily on his chair. “I think I know who it is.”

Every pony looked at him.

Twilight blinked. “WHO!?”

“It’s a demon!” Paradox yelled. “And he’s coming to drag me into Tartarus! I cannot… I won’t go!” He looked at Fluttershy. “Mom… The demon tried to turn me… he tried to make me a monster… Please Mom… Please.”

Fluttershy hugged Paradox and held him close. “It’s okay Doxy. We’ll keep you safe. Won’t we?” She looked up at Discord.

“Of course we will.” Discord answered. “Nothing is going to tear my family apart.” He looked at Twilight and Luna. “We have to talk…. Privately.”

Both Luna and Twilight nodded.

He kissed Fluttershy on her lips. “I just need to go. I’ll be back love.” Fluttershy nodded. He ruffled Paradox’s mane and hugged Lilly and Scarlet Grace. “Don’t worry I’ll fix this.”

“Dad, what are you going to do?” Lilly asked as she suddenly saw that her father was following Luna and Twilight out the door.

“I’m going to fix the problem Lilly.”

“I’m coming with you.” Lilly said.

Zero suddenly walked over to Lilly. “Dear. I don’t think it’s wise, you’re about to foal.”

She bit her bottom lip. “But… I cannot just…”

Discord looked at Lilly. “It’ll be okay. The shadow was banished before… It can be again.”
