Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 115

115.

Paradox was breathing heavily. “I don’t know if I can do this.” He said as he walked to his spot on the dais.

“Yer fine.” Crispin spoke up. “She’s probably as nervous as ya are.”

Paradox began to fidget “What if she doesn’t want to marry me? What if she runs away? What if I am not cut out to be a husband?”crispinDox

“We cannot base our life on what ifs. It’s best we dive right into it and hope for the best. Embrace a little bit of chaos along the way.” Discord said as he walked up to his son. “Don’t worry Dox, you’ll do as well as I did.”

“As well as you?” He asked.

“Oh yes. All this…” Then something appeared in his paw, he opened it and started to eat crispy fried potatoes. “And a bag of chips.”

“Dad…” Paradox sighed and shook his head as Crispin looked shocked.

“I got your mind off of the wedding temporarily.” Discord said as he walked back to Fluttershy.

“I gots to go and walk the maid of honor in. Yer gonna be alright Dox?” Crispin asked.

With wide eyes Paradox nodded.

“Remember to breathe.” Discord said.

“Discord, leave your son alone he’s fine.” Fluttershy whispered.

Nearby three mares were watching the foals sleep, helping Fluttershy.

Fluttershy had her grandchildren in a baby carriage. She looked in on them and smiled. She then adjusted the baby sling on her chest with her own infant. All were sleeping. Trouble was the most difficult to get to sleep being that he was the oldest of the three. Silver Dash wanted LillyRose and Grace to be her bride matrons. Paradox wanted Zero and Flight Strike as his ushers. So Fluttershy volunteered to watch the foals.runetroubleTwilight trotted over to Fluttershy. “Do you need any help?” she whispered.

“No, right now I’m fine. They are all asleep I’m hoping they stay asleep until after the ceremony.” she whispered back. “The place looks very beautiful. I’d have my birds sing for the wedding but I have my hooves full. Plus I don’t think Paradox likes birds singing.”

Twilight laughed lightly. “Anything you do for your son, he’d love.”

“Thank you Twilight.” Fluttershy whispered as she rolled the stroller back and forth.

“I’ll send over Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo to help you with the foals.” Twilight stated.

“Oh, you don’t have to do that.” Fluttershy blushed.

“Fluttershy, your son is getting married, I think you need to do more than foal sit.” She whispered.

The organ started to play rather spooky music every pony looked over to see Discord playing it dressed in a long cape and wearing a half mask. He stopped playing for a moment and hissed. “Don’t look at me! I’m hideous!” He then started to laugh as he disappeared letting the original organ player take a seat and start playing more appropriate music for the wedding.

Discord appeared in front of Fluttershy. “Hey sweetness? Looks like you have your hooves full of cute foals. Let me hold ours for you.”

She gave him the foal from the sling. “He’s asleep.” She whispered.

Discord smiled at the foal as he cradled him. “Little Snafu. Are you gonna behave while your big brother gets married?”

“Don’t wake him up.” Fluttershy warned him as she looked in on Trouble and Rune Eclipse. Rune Eclipse was snuggled up against her cousin Trouble.

Scootaloo, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle walked up to them. “Twilight sent us over here to help ya.” Apple Bloom said.

“Hmm. Hello.” Discord said to the three mares. “Yes, my wife would like to have a little help with foal sitting.”

“We all helped AJ raise Crispin.” Apple Bloom announced, “And Scootaloo did foal sitting for Rainbow Dash a couple times.”

Sweetie Belle shuffled her hooves. “I helped them. I’m good at singing lullabies to foals.”

Fluttershy smiled. “Hopefully you wouldn’t have to do much. Trouble and Rune are sleeping and Discord is holding Snafu. I am just hoping they rest until after the ceremony.”

“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.

Discord appeared outside Epona Calliope’s house. He looked around then walked to the door and knocked.

Epona opened the door and looked up at Discord in surprise. She was holding a bundle in her arms. “Lord Discord? What brings you here?”epona

“My daughter LillyRose is in labor. I’d hate to bother you but, you are the only one that I know that can help us.”

“But Discord, I have my own foal to take care of, couldn’t you ask the other local pony doctor?” She suggested.

“I can foal sit for you. If you would just help my daughter. Please.” He said softly “I’ll take you right to her.”

“I don’t think you’d make a good foal sitter…” She said and suddenly squeaked when he picked her up.

“I’m a father of Paradox, LillyRose and Scarlet Grace. I think I can take care of a foal for a couple hours.” He teleported them all.

103.

“I can’t do this!” Lilly yelled out. Sweat was rolling down her face and she looked at Zero. “Zero…. I can’t believe you… did this to me.”

“I… Lilly… that’s not fair.” Zero stuttered and looked at his wife in shock.

“Never fear. Discord is here!” Discord entered the room carrying Epona at arm’s length. “I brought the doctor.” He had a baby sling across his chest where Epona’s foal was.

Epona had a frown on her face, had her arms crossed as she looked at Lilly, Zero and Fluttershy. “Yeah, I’m here against my will. Let’s all celebrate.”

“Discord…?” Fluttershy said sternly at him.

“I just brought our favorite goddess of horses and birth to my daughter. You should be happy my love.” Discord said as he placed Epona down softly.

“Don’t worry Fluttershy, I’ll help LillyRose.” She then looked at Fluttershy and gulped. “I suggest you sit down soon Fluttershy.”

Fluttershy looked at Epona curiously. “Um… okay? I am glad you are here to take care of Lilly, where is your child?”

“Your husband is holding my foal, but I suggest a new foal sitter in about twenty seconds.” She said as she trotted over to Lilly. “LillyRose?”

Lilly looked at her doctor as she panted. “Yes?”

“You’re breathing well; where is your brother? I think he and his fiancé needs to watch my foal soon, because your mother… is going to go into labor in a few seconds.” She said quietly without Discord hearing her.

Zero and Lilly’s ears went forward and they both asked. “What!”

“Don’t worry.” Epona stated as she looked over Lilly. She magically summoned a stethoscope and she put them in her ears and listened to her. A couple other things magically appeared that would aid in the birth of a foal. “Everything will be alright.”

Paradox came running into the room with blankets and towels. “I brought all I could.” He said panting. He watched as they magically floated out of his paws. One was magically draped over Lilly’s stomach and back legs.

“Thank you Paradox. Now get my foal from your father please.” Epona stated quietly.

“What? Why does he need to hold him?” Discord asked suddenly as he took the foal from the sling and started to place the sling around Paradox’s chest.

“AH!” Fluttershy gasped out suddenly and clutched her stomach.

Discord’s eyes widened. “Fluttershy?” He quickly handed Epona’s foal to Paradox.

“AH!!!” LillyRose gasped aloud too.

“Looks like this is going to be a busy room.” Epona said calmly. “Discord, tend to your wife. She’s in labor as well.”

Silver Dash showed up with a bucket of water. She put it down and saw that Fluttershy as well as her friend LillyRose was in labor. She looked over at Paradox who was holding a foal in his paws and looking completely lost. “What did I just walk in on?”

The gates of Tartarus loomed in front of them. They were securely locked and Cerberus was laying on his stomach gnawing on a large bone. One of his three heads looked up at Discord and Twilight and growled menacingly.

“Well, it looks secure.” Twilight said nervously.

“Yes, so it seems.” Discord said, then he turned as he got down to look her in the eyes. “Twilight, it was a pleasure bothering, pestering and annoying you… if I do not come back… Tell Fluttershy I love her a lot.”

“Discord…” Twilight said.

“Please tell her that.” He said as he grabbed Twilight’s hoof. “She is my love and eternal light to my darkened day. I… I need you to tell her that.”

“I’ll tell her.” Twilight said as she fought back the tears that were threatening to escape. “But you should tell her that yourself.”

“I… will if I can…” He stood up and turned to face the gates of Tartarus. “I have come to see my brother.” Cerberus suddenly got up as all three heads started to snarl at him as he approached. “Let me enter!”

Twilight gasped when the gates suddenly opened for him. “Welcome back… Discord or shall I say… War?” A deep voice intoned. “Come and we’ll have a chat. Will your friend be joining us?”

“No… She was only a guide.” He said as the gates closed behind him. “She’s not coming.”

“So shall it be.” The voice said.

Twilight blinked as Discord disappeared from view. She didn’t know if she should wait or go back. She decided to wait.

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.”

Discord rolled in his sleep and he suddenly sat up and smacked his lips. “What is that pounding in my ears?”

Fluttershy awoke too and heard the loud pounding on the door. “Some pony is at the front door. Can you get that? Tell them we already have everything we need.”

Discord nodded as he sleepily got up from the bed and stumbled over to the door. He opened it and Lilly fell onto the floor in front of him. “It’s Lilly.” He told Fluttershy.

“I thought we already ordered lilies?” Fluttershy muttered in her sleep.

Lilly got up and looked at her father. “Dad… I have something to tell you.”

Discord yawned and stretched. “Sure tell me. I think I’m awake enough to hear you.”

“The shadow is back… It was trying to possess Doxy.” She said trying to hold back the panic from her voice.

Discord suddenly felt wide awake. “WHAT?”

Fluttershy sat up when she heard the tone of her husband’s voice. “What’s wrong?”

Lilly sat up suddenly. “Zero!”

Zero sat up; he had gotten to bed late after the long meeting he, Lilly, and Discord had about giving Fluttershy a baby shower. “What? Are you in labor? Do we need to get to the hospital?”

Lilly shook her head as she looked at her husband, her eyes wide in fright. “The shadow it… We have to tell dad!” She blinked as tears started to fall from her eyes.

Zero got out of bed and looked around the room. “How do you know this?”

“Paradox told me.” Lilly said as she got out of bed. “Come on, it’s important that Dad knows.”

“Wait… Lilly.” He said but she was already opening the door to their room.

“Zero, we cannot wait forever.” She said… She clicked her tongue and appeared beside him. She grabbed his hoof and clicked her tongue again and they both appeared just outside Discord and Fluttershy’s room. The two guards stood there and looked at them in shock when they appeared.

One guard blinked and recovered from the shock quickly. “Halt.”

“I have to talk to my Dad! It’s important.” Lilly said to the guard.

“Lord Discord said that he and Lady Fluttershy wasn’t to be disturbed.”

Zero walked up to them. “Lord Discord had appointed me captain of the night guard. Stand down. Lilly has to see her father.”

“Sir!” Both guards said together when they recognized Zero and they saluted.

Lilly went up to the door and knocked loudly upon it. “Mom! Dad!”

Every pony was sitting at Sugar Cube Corner waiting for their guests of honor. Some had already started to eat.

Paradox and Silver appeared at the entrance of the store both soaking wet. Although Silver kept looking at the engagement ring that Paradox gave her. She felt her heart thudding in her chest and she couldn’t believe that he asked her to marry him. She loved him so much.

“Shall we go in?” Paradox smirked at her as he put his claw up and moved a wet strand of her mane from her face. “You are so beautiful.” He whispered.

She giggled at his charm and nodded. “I think we should. You know your suit is um… kind of ruined.”

“I don’t care.” He said as he allowed her to walk ahead of him. “Should I go in first?”

“We should go in together.” Silver smiled.

“A lovely idea!” He said as he suddenly picked her up.

“Whoops! Doxy!” She giggled loudly as he magicked the door open and he walked in carrying Silver.

“We’re here!” Paradox yelled as they entered. “She said yes!”

They were met with cheers and congratulations. Paradox set Silver down and she was instantly hugged by Rainbow Dash. She looked at her mother and saw that she was crying. “Mom?”

Rainbow Dash tried hard to wipe her eyes. “Something is in my eyes… No… I’m so happy for you!” She started to sob loudly again.

Fluttershy was hugging Paradox. “I knew she’d say yes Doxy.”

“I was so nervous Mom, I almost stuttered again.” Paradox said.

Discord ruffled Paradox’s mane and started to chuckle. “You’re all wet.”

“Yeah, it was the location where I asked her. There was water all around us.” He smiled as he reached over to Silver and started to pet her shoulder.

After the initial congratulations and chatting started to calm down. Paradox and Silver both went to sit down with every pony else as they all started to eat and celebrate.

“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.dinnerdiscord

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.”

“I’ll be alright.” Fluttershy replied.
