“Uh oh Doxy yes…” Silver moaned out as she shuddered.
“Silver… gods.” He replied softly as he gripped her shoulders. “Let me…” He let out a harsh grunt. “Uh… gods yes!”
She panted as she let out another moan. “Doxy. Please.”
He nodded as he let the strap go and quickly buckled it. “There we go. Your ceremonial armor is now on you tight.”
She smiled at him. “Thank you my love. I appreciate it a lot.” She stretched in the armor and wiggled her hips a bit. “When did I get so out of shape?”
He chuckled. “When you had twins.”
“Oh.” She replied. “Mom wasn’t kidding then.”
“Maybe you should fly forty laps.” He grinned.
“You’re still going on about that? I wasn’t showing favorites…”
“You know how much I hate flying.” He spread out his wings. “These beauties are for decoration only.”
She shook her head. “They are gorgeous and functional you should use them more for flight. You could out fly mother if you flew daily.”
He shook his head. “No way am I going to challenge your mom to anything flying related.”
Silver suddenly blushed and closed her mouth tightly. She looked around and acted like she was trying to find parts to her ceremonial armor.
Paradox noticed how she got quiet. “Silver? What did you do?”
“Don’t get mad.” She whispered.
“You know I don’t lose my temper often. What did you do?” He asked warily.
“I signed you up to race next week against mom and a couple of Equestria’s best fliers…” Silver blushed as she shuffled her hooves.
He stared at her. “What? Why?”
She didn’t look at him as she shuffled her hooves more. “Mom was bragging again and I um… kind of said you’d win in a race against her.”
Paradox blinked at his wife. “Silver…”
She looked up at him. “I love you…” she grinned sheepishly.
“Sometimes I have to wonder.” He whispered as he sat down. “How am I going to get out of this race?”
“You won’t race?” She asked.
“I’m not in shape for a race Silver. I haven’t trained.”
She blinked. “A few weeks ago you did forty laps in no time at all. You didn’t even get winded.”
“I know. This is different. I have to race against Rainbow Dash.” He muttered as he put his head in his paws. “My mother-in-law. One of the fastest fliers in Equestria. Competition is everything to your mom.”
“Yes Doxy, but she has a very good sense of loyalty too.” Silver stated. “I know that you two would have a wonderful time racing.”
He looked up at her. “I guess I’ll have to start training, but you’ll owe me…”
Luna brought the box into the room. She looked at it and shook her head. “Unusual spell on this.” She looked at her sister then over to Twilight who was snuggled in a bed. “It will help though.” She opened the box and suddenly stumbled back as she gasped, her hooves shook slightly as the chaotic spell spilled invisibly out of the box. “Alright, now to see what Celestia is dreaming.”
She went over to Twilight and placed her hoof on her forehead. “I’ll help thee.”
She blinked and her eyes turned the color of the moon as she sat down.
Luna walked down many corridors, she was used to walking through the dreams of others and she stopped in front of a large door. She opened the door and saw Twilight sitting in an empty room. “Are ye ready Twilight?”
Twilight jumped and turned to look at Luna. “Oh! Yes! I was wondering why I wasn’t dreaming what I usually dreamt.”
“The box is helping with that.” Luna stated.
“There was something in that box?” Twilight asked.
“Of course.” Luna said as she opened a door. “Now please follow me. We’re going to visit Celestia.”
Twilight got up she blinked and suddenly everything changed around them, they were in a room that was painted a very light pink. A table was in the middle with a red and white checked table cloth on it, on the table was a banana split. Sitting on the opposite of the table was Princess Celestia and she was eating the banana split. She put a huge spoonful in her mouth as she suddenly looked up and saw Luna and Twilight looking at her. She blinked her violet eyes at them as she swallowed what she had in her mouth. “Twilight Sparkle… Little Sister? What are you two doing in my dream?”
“Princess Celestia…” Twilight said nervously. “Are you alright?”
“Of course I am. Why do you ask?” She smiled and she lifted the spoon with her magic to eat more of the banana split.
“Sister, ye have been sick for over a year. Ye have been; forgive me for saying, of not the right mind.”
Celestia put the spoon down. “What do you mean?”
“Discord has been in charge of raising the sun for over a year and a half.” Twilight said quickly. “He and his family have been in the castle making sure that everything is kept safe and working properly while you’ve been away.”
Celestia got up. “What? Is this true, not that I am doubting you Twilight but… This is a dream and dreams can quickly turn.”
“Tis true sister. We had put Discord in charge of the day.” Luna said without apology.
Celestia smiled. “That is interesting, hmm I guess Fluttershy had tamed him down quite a bit then hadn’t she? So how did I end up being … Out of my senses for so long?”
Luna approached her. “The shadow, it was different this time, it consumed thee before we knew it had invaded thy mind. We were completely shocked that Discord and his daughter showed up as it grew in strength, we didn’t even call for help. The shadow had changed it was a different entity and it wanted not only ye, but it wanted LillyRose and Discord as well.” She stopped talking for a moment as she looked down. “It escaped after Lilly banished it… Ye became terribly ill.”
“I still cannot awaken.” Celestia suddenly said. “Are you sure LillyRose purged all of the shadow from me?”
Twilight and Luna both looked at one another and back at Celestia.
“What does thou mean?” Luna asked cautiously.
Celestia looked behind her as a shadow started to form on the wall behind her. Twilight started to back away. “Luna, we need to leave…” Luna frowned as she stepped forward.“Very unwisssseee of you to come into my domain. Celesssstia isss sstill mine…” The shadow started to take a faint shape. “You figured it out Luna… I am not the sssame ssshade that had taken you… I need Dissscord… I need hisss children… I need to…” The shadow stopped talking. “I’m not going to reveal my plansss to you!” The shadow engulfed Celestia suddenly and they both disappeared. Both Luna and Twilight were pushed out of Celestia’s dreams.
Twilight sat up in bed gasping and panting loudly. “What went wrong? I used the potion… It should have worked.” Twilight flapped her wings. “What do we do?”
Luna looked over to her as she stood up. “Twilight, my sister isn’t cured yet. We need to inform Discord. Perhaps he knows what this shadow is and why it wants him and his children.”
“The celebration can start now, because I am here.” Discord said as he walked into Sugar Cube Corner with Fluttershy. Every pony looked at him and Lilly started to snicker at her father.
“Discord, your son hasn’t gotten here yet, you might as well sit down.” Twilight said sharply.
“Kind of grumpy today Twilight?” He asked as he walked over to the table with the cakes and sweets. Fluttershy walked over to her friends and sat in a chair next to Rainbow Dash and started to chat with her.
Rainbow Dash was biting on her lower lip as she sat in her chair. She looked at Fluttershy and gave a weak smile. “What if Silver says no?”
“Um, don’t worry about it Rainbow, everything will be okay.” Fluttershy said quietly to her friend. “Doxy is a good boy… Silver really does enjoy being around him.”
Discord strolled over to the empty seat next to Fluttershy as he carried a plate full of food and he set it in front of Fluttershy. “Little mommy needs to eat more food, growing babies need nibbles.” He cooed to her.
Rainbow Dash, Pinkie and Twilight all looked at Fluttershy. “You’re pregnant again?” They asked in unison.
Fluttershy squeaked and hid her face behind her mane and Discord grinned proudly. “Yes, she is.”
Apple Jack walked in followed by Rarity who was wearing another one of her elegant gowns.
Apple Jack saw her son Crispin sitting really close to Sprinkle Icing and she smiled. “Hey Crispin, I see you got yer chores finished. Well done.” She walked to where her friends were sitting. “Hey Twi, Rainbow, Fluttershy, Pinkie and Discord.” Twilight and Rainbow were still looking at Fluttershy but Pinkie waved at Apple Jack.
“Hey AJ!” Pinkie Pie giggled. “Guess what I saw.”
“Tell me.” Apple Jack said.
“Crispin and Sprinkle Icing kissed.” Pinkie blurted out. “And Fluttershy is pregnant again.”
Apple Jack blinked a couple times. “Whoa, Crispin actually kissed yer daughter? I’m more shocked than a barrel full of electric eels.” She looked over at Crispin; Sprinkle Icing was leaning against him with a smile on her face. “And what is this news about Fluttershy?” She said as she looked over to Discord and Fluttershy.
“Apparently Fluttershy is pregnant again.” Twilight answered as she saw Fluttershy get embarrassed again.
“Again?” Rarity said in shock as she approached them. “Oh dear, you think you can handle another foal at your age? Your own children are having children.”
Fluttershy looked at her friends. “I um… Well, I don’t know.” She squeaked again when Discord placed his paw on her shoulder.
“I don’t think it’s a matter of her age. I can keep an eye on her. She’s perfectly healthy and we have the best doctor in all of Equestria that watches over my whole family.” Discord interjected.
“True, your doctor is one of the best in Equestria.” Twilight nodded. “We just worry about you.”
“It won’t hurt to just ask.” Spike said to Twilight. “All he can say is no, right?”
Twilight sighed. “I guess so Spike; it’s the fact that Luna asked Discord to run Canterlot and not me… that really…” She let out a sigh.
“Maybe she thought you weren’t ready? Discord is a lot older and he has better control of magic than any other pony I know.” He stopped when Twilight gave him a look. “Besides you of course.” He smiled.
She shook her head. “Celestia is getting worse by the day; she just stares off into nothing. I’ve read all my books and I cannot find a solution. I’ve even read books in Canterlot’s library.”
“Have you tried Discord’s library?” Spike asked.
“I don’t like his library; I can’t find anything in it. His organization is…” She sighed deeply. “Chaotic.”
Spike looked at her and laughed in spite of the situation. “What did you expect from Discord?”
After Paradox walked with Fluttershy she asked him to walk her to the throne room, she thought that maybe if she just sat with her husband for a while she would give Paradox time to be alone with Silver Dash.
“Fluttershy! My sweetness!” Discord said cheerfully as he patted her small throne next to him. “Come sit and keep me company.”
“Okay, but don’t give me too much attention.” She whispered as she walked over to her throne and sat down. She looked around and noticed that the throne room was empty beside the few guards standing close by. “Where is every pony?”
Discord shrugged. “Oh, it’s one of those quiet days.” He sat back in his throne then sat up again as a pony walked into the room.
One of the guards stepped forward. “State your business.”
The pony was an earth pony with a light gray coat and a cutie mark that resembled hay bales and he looked older than the ponies that Discord had seen lately. “Um Lord Chaos, I’m Hearty Clash a simple farmer on the outskirts of Canterlot and I have been having a problem with mice eating my crops. I was wondering if there was a safe way to get rid of them.”
Discord thought about it for a moment, but Fluttershy spoke up before he said anything. “Mice are very particular and they seem to latch on with what they like. Maybe you should plant a different crop next year and then rotate the crops and maybe the mice will stop eating into your profits. If that doesn’t work, I will give them a talking to myself and ask them politely to leave your plants alone.”
Hearty blinked and bowed. “Oh, thank you. I will try that.” He then cleared his throat again. “I was also wondering… My son… he works here at the castle… I was wondering if he could have some time off to spend with me.”
Discord blinked. “Well. I don’t see why not. What’s your son’s name?”
“Zero Clash.” The farmer said quietly.
Fluttershy looked at Discord quickly.
“Ah yes, Zero…” Discord muttered. “A fine young stallion. I’m sorry. Zero is not here.”
Hearty looked at him in shock. “Are you sure? My son is very dedicated to his work.”
“Dedicated… hmmm yes… well…” Discord muttered and Fluttershy noticed that he was digging his claws into the wood of his throne.
She spoke up again as she got up. “Mr. um… Clash. Sorry to say something again, but… you see, right now Zero has gone on assignment with Lady Chaos, our daughter, and we don’t know when he will be back. I will though, let him know when he returns that he needs to visit his family soon.” She steered the earth pony away from Discord and was walking with him towards the door. “I really would love to meet your family sometime soon too. Sorry that you had come all this way to see him only to be turned away. Don’t be upset, Zero is quite safe with our daughter.”
“Thank you Lady Fluttershy.” Zero’s father replied as he trotted away.
She trotted back up to her throne and sat down and stared at her husband. “Discord… why did you act like that?”
Discord’s eyes narrowed. “His son… violated my double flower.”
She shook her head. “Two consenting adults… having sex.”
“Yes, and one is my daughter.” Discord mumbled.
“Discord, it wasn’t Zero’s father’s fault. I am sure he’d be the same way if he had a daughter. Besides, I don’t think he knows that he and Lilly are a couple now.” Fluttershy smiled.
“Okay Fluttershy I guess I’ll give it a rest until they get home. Wherever they are. I bet they are doing something that they shouldn’t be doing.” He grumped.
She looked at him. “Cheer up.”
He looked over at her. “Why Fluttershy? One of our daughters is just about to have a baby, and the other is somewhere Luna knows where with her boyfriend! Our son had just gotten out of being terribly ill to falling head over heels for some pony he had ignored for years… What more can go wrong I ask you?”
“I’m pregnant.” Fluttershy said suddenly.
He sat up. “Fluttershy, you have played this trick on me before… Are you doing it again?”
She looked at him. “What do you think?”
He looked around and saw the guards standing stoically and he leaned over to her placing his paw and claw on her stomach as he closed his eyes. He slowly rubbed her fur spreading his fingers through the softness. His eyes opened fast as he looked up at her face. “We’re pregnant again.”
She nodded at him as she smiled shyly. “Yes.”
“Fluttershy, I don’t count that as something going wrong.” He couldn’t help but smile. “You have cheered me up exponentially.” He looked around. “Oh! I’ve got to tell someone the news…” He jumped up off his throne and ran over to one of the guards. “MY WIFE IS PREGNANT!!” He shook him on his shoulders.
The guard blinked in surprise. “Uh, congratulations Sir.”
“Thank you!” Discord went back over to Fluttershy and kissed her. “I love you Fluttershy.”
Fluttershy blushed as she smiled at him. “I love you too.”
Discord had put the sun down again as he did so he stretched and walked slowly into the bedroom. Fluttershy wasn’t in bed yet and he wasn’t sure why. He fell onto the bed face first and scooted on better, wrapping himself in the blankets. He was about to drift off to sleep when he heard something odd in the other room. His ears perked up when he heard Fluttershy crying? He quickly jumped out of bed and looked into the other room.
Fluttershy was lying on the couch looking at something in a box. She was crying lightly as she looked in it. Her ear twitched when she heard him enter the room and she quickly closed the box.
“Fluttershy? What is wrong my dear?” He asked as he approached trying to ignore the box she had.
She moved her hoof over her face. “Nothing is wrong.” She whispered. “I was um going to put this on the shelf.” She got up and walked to the book shelf and placed the box on it. “I had no idea it was this late. Let’s go to bed.”
He watched her as she walked by him. He reached out and put his fingers through her mane as she walked by. “Fluttershy, why were you crying?”
She blinked at the question. “Oh, umm no reason. I’m just tired I guess.” She continued in the bedroom and he followed her after glancing at the box one last time.
They curled up together in bed and fell asleep. It was in the middle of the night when Discord’s curiosity got the better of him. He sat up in bed and looked at Fluttershy sleeping soundly, her mane a beautiful mess upon the pillow. He admired her for a moment then slowly slinked out of bed.
He walked into the other room and saw the box on the shelf and he summoned it to his claw. He hesitated in opening it for just a moment not sure what to expect when he did.
Fluttershy awoke and noticed that he wasn’t in bed with her. She flapped her wings tiredly and got up out of bed. She slowly went into the other room and gasped when she saw he had the box in his hand.
He looked at her when he heard her gasp. “Explain this.” He placed the box in front of him on the table.
“You opened it?” She asked; then shook her head. “You didn’t open it. I can tell.”
Discord blinked. “What’s in it?”
She smiled. “Nothing is in it. Although, something used to be, it’s empty now.”
“Empty?” He turned the box toward him and slowly opened the lid.
“Told you. Empty.” She stated.
“Yes, but not quite.” He held the box up and sniffed it. “Smells like herbals.” he then gasped. “Fluttershy! Why?”
She suddenly blushed. “Because… I umm… it was Epona’s idea.” She squeaked.
He started to chuckle. “It’s quite alright my dear. I already knew you had been taking something. I think we can get you more if you really want to.”
“You’re not angry?” Fluttershy asked.
He shook his head. “No, of course not, although, I guess we’ll have to stop having some bedroom follies until we get you more herbs.”
She looked at him with her eyes wide. “But… um… I start my estrus tomorrow and you… cannot…”
“I have you know, I can resist the temptation.” He smiled with a slight twitch of his eye.
“Um… sure you can.” Fluttershy answered. “I guess we can go back to bed.”
13. Discord moved the sun down and grinned at how simple it was. He then looked at Fluttershy who was watching him command the sun, he made it do a little loop around and finally set, she shook her head at him. She was lounging on her side on the large bed in their bedroom in one of the castle towers. He couldn’t help but admire her as he jumped on the bed. “My Queen Fluttershy.” He whispered as he snuggled up against her. “What is your pleasure?”
Fluttershy felt her cheeks start to burn as she wiggled against him. “Oh, you are just teasing me now.”
He placed his paw on his chest. “I never tease you. I’d rather please you.” He leaned down and kissed her softly as he curled up around her; he rubbed his claw over her flank and her cutie mark. “It’s our first night here… I say we have some fun.”
Fluttershy blushed as he rubbed her flank. “What if… Um… the guards hear us?” She asked.
Discord chuckled. “I don’t care if they do. You recall my love, that I’m an exhibitionist. They could watch for all I care, maybe they will learn something.”
“Um, I don’t want them to watch.” She whispered.
He chuckled. “It’s okay, I won’t allow them to watch, and they cannot hear us. At least I don’t think they can.”
Fluttershy blushed deeply. “Can you make sure?”
“My love, don’t you worry, they already know we’re married…” He paused when she gave him a pouting face. “Okay I’ll make sure.”
He snapped his fingers and disappeared to reappear outside the room. He saw two guards standing there. “Make sure we aren’t disturbed and don’t listen.” they both nodded curtly. “If you hear a small pony moaning in pleasure ignore it, more than likely it is my wife.” He grinned as he reappeared in their room again. “They cannot hear you.” He reassured Fluttershy as he slowly crawled into the bed again.
She sighed as she relaxed when he slowly curled up around her again. “Thanks for making sure.”
“My pleasure.” He whispered as he nibbled along her neck and rubbed his paw over her body.
“Oh…” she seemed to melt under his attention. Her wings fluttered as he moved his paw over her back and down across her flanks.
He moved his claw over her shoulder as he moved his body over her. “I cannot ever get enough of you.” He whispered as he pushed her tail to the side with his paw.
She looked back at him as he leaned over her. “I don’t know what I would have done without you.” she said softly.
He rubbed himself up along her hot, damp entrance as he leaned down and kissed her. He pushed his tongue in her mouth as they kissed deeply at the same time he pushed himself into her. Their bodies moved in synch with one another they each knew what the other needed and they didn’t mind the knowledge.
Fluttershy moaned out when their kiss ended and he moved his hips against her as he gripped her shoulders. “Oh, yes my love.” He encouraged as he thrust into her harder.
“Oh please, Discord.” Fluttershy panted out loudly as she felt her orgasm over take her. “Oh yes!”
He felt her flow over his need and he kept the pace up as he moved in and out of her like a piston. “So silky smooth so tight and oh, Fluttershy.” He moaned lustfully when he felt her tighten around him.
“Discord, please…” she shuddered as her wings quivered with another orgasm.
Discord gritted his teeth as he felt her pleasure flow around him again and he couldn’t hold back any longer. With a deep grunt he pushed in deeply and released himself into her, spilling fourth his seed up against her cervix filling her up. “You feel so good…” He moaned as he bucked up into her letting her muscles flutter and milk him of all his desire.
Reluctantly he pulled from her and he kissed along her neck as she snuggled up against him. “That felt wonderful.” Fluttershy whispered.
“You felt wonderful.” He whispered back as he rubbed her shoulders with his paw and claw. “Thank you for trying to sit with me today in the throne room.”
“Oh, I’m sorry that I could not stay longer. All that attention on me… scares me.” She blushed.
“While I am with you, you shouldn’t have any fear. I will not let anyone harm my beautiful queen.” He whispered as he curled around her protectively. He then grinned as a thought occurred to him and he started to laugh softly. Fluttershy knew better than to ask but she had to. “Why are you laughing?”
He looked her in the eyes. “Let’s go down to the throne room right now.”
She blinked. “Why? Its night time, no one will be there.”
“I know.” He grinned evilly and winked at her.
Fluttershy’s eyes widened as she blushed at his suggestion. “I… um… Okay.” She said.
Discord looked at her in shock. “Did you just say okay?”
Fluttershy nodded. “Yes.”
“Okay then,” He sat up in the bed picked her up and with a snap of his fingers they disappeared.
The throne room was dark and quiet as Discord and Fluttershy appeared in it. He put her down as he watched her. “It is quiet in here…” She murmured as she walked up to the thrones. She looked at his throne smiled and looked at him as he watched her. “How long have you had this throne?”
Discord was puzzled by the question. “Several centuries, why?”
Fluttershy grinned as she put her hooves on it and started to rub the wood slowly. “The wood is nice and hard on it.” She leaned against it and then looked over her shoulder at him. “Is it a comfortable throne?”
He was biting is lower lip as he watched her rub against his throne. “It’s very comfortable.” He muttered as he walked up to her slowly.
“Hmm, I don’t know.” Fluttershy said as she climbed up on the throne and started to rub the back of it with her hooves. “The wood is sure hard here too.”
Discord smirked as he reached out and placed his claw on her hip. “You want to feel some hard wood?” He asked as he pulled her to him. “I have some right here for you.”
She made a small squeak as he rubbed his arousal against her already damp folds. “Oh yes, that feels pretty hard to me.” She moaned.
“Yes… It’s hard and needs some polishing.” He said as he moved his arousal up slipping it slowly into her entrance and started to make love to her again as she leaned against his throne.
Fluttershy gasped as he pushed in her as she shuddered in pleasure. “Oh, yes…” She moaned loudly.
Discord gripped her tightly as he pushed into her deeply. “You deliberately wanted to do this.” He panted.
“Ooh Discord. Of course I did.” She moaned out when he pushed into her hard. She rested her cheek against the back of his throne as he increased his thrusts.
He huffed in pleasure as they mated on his throne. “Oh. I’m going to…” He pushed into her deeply as he released himself into her again.
Fluttershy jumped when Discord appeared right next to her in the kitchen. He was holding Lilly in his arms. “We’re home.” he announced.
Fluttershy gasped as she saw Lilly in his arms. “What happened to Lilly?”
“She’s just tired.” Discord smiled. “She did something wonderful and I’m extremely proud of her.”
Fluttershy looked at him as if waiting for him to explain what he meant but he carried Lilly into the other room and placed her on the couch. Fluttershy followed him with a look of confusion on her face. “What did Lilly do?” She asked.
He turned and looked at Fluttershy, looking like a cat that ate a bird. “Oh you will never ever guess.”
Fluttershy stared at him. “Discord you know I am not good at guessing games.”
“You give up before you even try.” He said sadly. “Oh! I know! Wait right here.” He jumped up and went upstairs.
Fluttershy looked at Lilly and saw that her daughter had dark circles under her eyes and her color seemed a little drained. “Lilly, are you okay?” She asked.
Lilly looked up at her mother and smiled. “Hi Mom… Did Dad tell you yet?”
“No.” Fluttershy answered as she put her hoof on Lilly’s forehead. “What did you two do in Canterlot?”
“Wait… no Lilly! Don’t… don’t tell her! I want to… Please.” Discord said as he carried a box over to Fluttershy.
Lilly yawned and rolled over. “Then tell her.”
“Discord? Why do you have that crown you and Dox got for me on our 2nd wedding anniversary?” Fluttershy asked.
“Because… I want you to wear it tomorrow.” He said softly.
“Why would I wear it?” She looked at him suspiciously.
“Dad, just tell her already.” Lilly said in a frustrated sigh.
“I’m trying to Lilly, but someone keeps interrupting me.” Discord grumbled.
“Discord? What are you and Lilly talking about?” Fluttershy wrinkled her nose.
Discord looked at her little nose wrinkle and wanted to just kiss her. “You are so cute when you wrinkle your nose.” He whispered to Fluttershy.
“Geez.” Lilly sat up and looked at her father sternly. “Dad… if you don’t tell her I will.”
“Alright.” He took the crown out of the box and placed it on Fluttershy’s head. “I rule Equestria now and I need you to sit beside me.”
Fluttershy blinked at him then looked at Lilly. “What?”
“Dad, I think you broke Mom.” Lilly said sleepily.
“What?” Fluttershy said again as she stared at them.
“Okay Mom… I will explain this to you.” Lilly said as she got Fluttershy’s attention. “Celestia was possessed and I saved her from the possession, I am more powerful than I thought I was. Anyway, Celestia is very ill and Luna has asked for help in taking care of Equestria. So… Dad is going to rule in Celestia’s place. It is all legitimate.”
Fluttershy blinked and slowly looked at Discord. “You’re the ruler of Equestria?”
Discord grinned as he put his hand and paw around her hoof. “Yes, and I want you to sit beside me. I love you Fluttershy, please share this with me.”
She took in a deep breath and looked down at his paw slowly stroking her hoof. “When Celestia comes back are you comfortable with giving the power back to her?” She asked.
“I will give it up as soon as Celestia is well enough to return.” He didn’t pause as he looked into her eyes. “I will not give up the power because of her though; I will only give it up because of you and only you.”
Fluttershy blushed as she looked at him. “Okay Discord. I will sit with you.”
“Oh thank goodness.” Lilly said as she got up off the couch. “I’m going to bed. Dad, you’d better make the sun go down before you go to bed.” She stomped upstairs.
Spike belched up a scroll and made a face. “Ugh, this scroll tastes like coconut.” He looked at the scroll and it didn’t look like Celestia’s normal looking scroll. It had a different seal on it. “Twilight, a scroll from Celestia… I guess…”
Twilight looked at Spike. “You guess? What would make you guess?” She lifted the scroll up with her magic and looked at it. “That isn’t Celestia’s seal, whose seal is that?”
Spike shrugged. “What does it say?”
Twilight opened and read it. “Dear Twilight Sparkle, your presence is requested immediately in Canterlot. Signed Princess Luna.”
“Princess Luna?” Twilight asked. “Spike something isn’t right, I think I might have to teleport there.”
“Are you sure Twilight?” Spike asked nervously.
She nodded. “Yes I am sure. I’ll be back.” Her horn glowed and she disappeared.
Twilight appeared outside the throne room. Everything seemed normal guards were standing at their posts and they bowed when they saw her.
“Princess Twilight.” One guard bowed to her lower than the others. “You are expected.”
“Is everything okay?” Twilight asked.
“Oh yes, Princess.” The guard stated as he opened the throne room door. “Go right on in.”
Twilight trotted into the throne room confidently and stopped in mid stride when she saw Discord grinning at her from the throne. He waved at her, “Come on in Twilight, I am glad you are so punctual to summons.”
“What in Celestia’s name is going on?” Twilight demanded. “Are you the reason why Luna requested me? Where is Celestia?”
Discord started to chuckle at her look. “Oh this is too perfect; I want to cherish that look on your face forever.” He stared at her for a moment. “Yes, Luna requested you, but I sent you the message. Did Spike enjoy the flavor?”
“He doesn’t like coconut.” Twilight muttered.
“Oh, I’ll have to remember that.” Discord grinned.
“Are you going to explain to me what is going on?” Twilight growled. “What are you doing on the throne, where is Celestia? Why are the guards listening to you and working for you?”
“Dad, I think you had enough fun with aunt Twilight.” Lilly said as she walked from behind the curtain.
Twilight suddenly felt relieved when she saw Lilly. “Oh so this is just an elaborate joke, right? Celestia you are very funny, come out.”
Lilly shook her head. “No, it’s not a joke; Dad is the ruler of Equestria. Celestia isn’t here.”
Twilight blinked. “What, but… what did you do to Celestia?” She flapped her wings and confronted Discord.
He put his arms up. “I didn’t do anything; it was all Lilly’s idea. Luna agreed.”
She landed while she looked at Lilly; she didn’t understand why Discord had been appointed by Luna. “Lilly?”
“Come on Twilight, we have a lot to talk about.” Lilly said. “Talk to you later Dad.”
“Yeah, sure leave me alone to run a kingdom.” Discord muttered as he sat back on his throne. He then grinned as he summoned a throne right next to him; it was smaller but looked to accommodate a pony. “Yes, she would look beautiful right here beside me.”
Lilly walked with Twilight down the hallway. “Tell me what is going on?” Twilight demanded as her tail flicked in irritation.
“We need your help Twilight,” Lilly said as she sighed. “Celestia is gravely ill and Luna can only do so much, we need you to help Celestia get better. Her mind has been corrupted and is badly injured she needs constant attention something that none of us could do on our own.”
“How did it happen? You didn’t corrupt Celestia did you?” She asked.
Lilly sighed. “No and neither did Dad. It was a shadow; it took Celestia and then tried to take me. Apparently, something is deep inside of me that enables me see my way out of darkness. I don’t know what it is, but right now I am very weak. It’s by sure will power I am still standing.” She sighed again.
“You should rest then.” Twilight looked at her. “Does Fluttershy know that you and your father are here?”
Lilly nodded, “Yes, but she doesn’t know what had transpired here. I think Dad wants to tell her. Paradox is extremely ill, so she is taking care of him.”
“Oh! What is wrong with Paradox?” Twilight was looking more worried with all the bad news.
Lilly stopped and sighed. “I don’t know. Twilight can you help us? If you can, Luna will take you to see Celestia.”
Twilight was suddenly surprised that they were standing next to Luna’s room; two of her guards were standing at attention. “Oh! Yes I would like to help anyway I could.”
“Thank you.” Lilly knocked on Luna’s door as the guards bowed to her.
Luna opened the door, Lilly and Twilight bowed to her. “Ye had brought me Twilight Sparkle. We are so pleased, thank ye Lady Chaos.”
“You’re welcome Princess.” Lilly said. “I have told her only a little bit, you will have to tell her the rest. I don’t remember a lot.”
Luna nodded in understanding. “Tis true Lady Chaos, ye were busy. Thank ye again for saving her.”
Lilly nodded. “Princess, I tried my best. If you would excuse me? I think I need some rest.”
“Yes, ye should get rest; tomorrow we shall get thou family into the castle and appoint ye some guards.” Princess Luna nodded as she looked at Twilight. “Princess Twilight, please accompany me to tend to Celestia.”
“Yes Princess.” Twilight nodded as Luna let Twilight into her room shutting the door as Lilly walked away back towards the throne room.
Lilly yawned as she slowly opened the door to the throne room and looked in. Discord was redecorating, using dark colors that matched his throne. “Dad. This room looks too dark.” She muttered as she walked over to him.
“You think so?” He asked as he rubbed his beard.
“Yeah, you should hire Aunt Rarity to redecorate for you.” She suggested.
Discord tapped on his tooth. “Maybe… or… I can ask the opinion of your mother.”
“You haven’t told her yet? Dad, she’s probably worried sick about us.” Lilly blinked tiredly. “I’m… so sleepy…” She wobbled unsteadily. She started to fall over Discord caught her quickly.
“My little double flower. I will take you home.” He looked around the throne room smiled and snapped his fingers.
