Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 19


“Did you hear anything new?” Fluttershy asked Discord. He had walked back from talking to one of the nurses and sat next to her in the waiting room.

“Nothing yet Fluttershy.” He said and looked at Rainbow Dash who was nibbling on her hooves nervously. “Are you surviving over there RD?”

Rainbow Dash looked at him and nodded quickly then shook her head. She took the cup of water that was offered her from Apple Jack. “Yeah… Yeah… I guess… Why hasn’t Paradox come out to talk to us yet?”

Discord shrugged. “I don’t know.”

“It’ll be alright Sugar cube.” Apple Jack said to RD. “No news is good news, right?”

“I guess so…” Rainbow nodded and looked over at Big Mac who was making faces at Snafu in the stroller next to Fluttershy. “Thanks for telling me AJ.”

The door to the waiting room opened and Paradox walked out, his wings were still dragging behind him and he looked worn out. “Hey…” He waved as he settled down on the closest chair nearby. They all stared at him as he sat there.tireddox

“WELL?” Rainbow Dash said a little too loudly causing several of the nurses to look at her sternly.

Paradox looked up at them his eyes were sunken in and he let out a deep breath. “Sorry… I’m just really tired from flying…” He stood up slowly and stretched. “I have some news.”

Every pony looked at him anxiously.

“Silver is doing really well. Doctor Epona told me that it’ll be about an hour and I should tell you.” He saw the looks of relief go over their faces. He then looked at his father. “Dad… how can you deal with this stress?”

“This is only the beginning…” Discord chuckled.

A nurse walked into the room. “Is there a Paradox out here?”

Discord started to snicker and Paradox stood up as he gave his father a frown. “Dad, really? Must you make fun of my name now?”

“One must take the opportunity when the time comes.”

“I’m here.” Paradox said to the nurse.

“Your wife is asking for you.”

“Okay.” He looked nervously at every pony and followed the nurse back in. “Hopefully next time you see me it’ll be with the foal and Silver.”

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 18


Silver moved slightly to her side and suddenly gasped as a pain shot through her. “What?”

Paradox was instantly awake and looked over at her. “What is it?”

She shook her head and moved again and the pain radiated around her stomach. “Oh!”

Paradox sat up and looked at his wife in concern. “Silver, tell me.”

She put her hoof up as she took in deep breath and then let it out slowly. “Wait a moment.” She took in another breath and then her eyes widened. “Ouch. Oh…” She gasped as she looked at him nervously.

Paradox blinked at his wife. “Is…?”

Silver yelled out in pain as it radiated around her stomach. “Doxy… I… think so.”

He jumped out of bed. “It’s time, I’m gonna be a dad; oh what do I do; what should I do? Silver…?”

She looked at him and slowly rubbed her belly as he looked at her for advice. “Tell the doctor? Take me to the hospital, tell my family and yours.” She smiled then clutched her stomach and let out a pained whimper.

He went over to her and kissed her face. “How do I do all this?”

“Get me to the hospital first.” She gasped out as another wave of pain hit her. “Remember the pain you had when your sister…  um… Lilly went into labor?”

He nodded and swallowed hard. “Don’t remind me. I’m going to get you to the hospital.” He moved to her side and picked her up gently.

“Don’t use magic Doxy. Please.” She said quickly.

“What? How am I to get you to the hospital fast?” He asked with slight panic in his voice.

“You can fly… fly me there.” She said as she put her hoof on his cheek. “Just don’t use magic Doxy.”

He let out a sigh as he nodded. “Ok, I’ll fly you there, although I am a little rusty.” He walked to the door to the balcony off their bedroom and went out. Swallowing hard he spread his wings out, stretching them out fully and flapping them in the early morning.flight2

Silver squeaked and closed her eyes when he jumped up and took flight. This was the first time he ever flew while holding her and she could have sworn that he had never flown the whole time they ever dated; although he had mentioned several times that her mother made him fly laps as punishments for different things when he was younger.

He flew up and held Silver to him gently but firmly. He wanted to be careful as he flew over a part of Everfree Forest and over his parent’s cottage. As he flew over their cottage he looked down to see if either one of them were outside. There wasn’t a sign of either one of them so he pumped his wings and flew towards Ponyville.

Silver carefully opened her eyes and let out the breath she was holding in. She whimpered with the pain but she was also in awe on how well he flew.

He held her protectively as he used heavy strong beats of his wings to move swiftly. They flew through the outskirts of Ponyville and Silver noticed that Paradox was starting to breathe heavily. He flew over Sweet Apple Acres as he scanned the orchard and suddenly noticed trees being shook to loosen apples. He flew for it.

Silver didn’t know what he was doing since he took a slight detour into Sweet Apple Acres. “Doxy? What are you … Doing?” She gasped out as she was hit with another pain.

“Don’t worry…” He panted as he answered her. He suddenly reversed his forward movement to hover in place his wings beating hard and fast as he hovered over the trees being bucked and spotted Big Mac, Crispin Apple and Apple Jack.

Silver now knew what Paradox wanted to do. She saw her father. “Dad!”

Big Mac, AJ and Crispin all looked up. “What the hay is going on?” Apple Jack demanded.

Paradox was panting hard. “I can hardly talk… Tell him Silver.”

Silver nodded and let out a slight cry of pain then composed herself. “I’m in labor and Doxy is taking me to the hospital tell every pony please.” She said.

Big Mac ran forward just as Paradox turned and flew off with Silver. “Sorry…” He shouted back over his shoulder. “I got to get you there before I run out of breath.” He muttered.

Silver nodded. Paradox gave bigger wing beats and flew towards the hospital. When he got to the Ponyville general hospital he landed at the entrance and stood to regain his strength still holding her in his arms. Folding his wings behind him he walked her into the emergency room carrying her still. “My wife is in labor.”

The nurses perked up and they helped Paradox by taking Silver into the back. He went with them his wings were feeling tired as they unfurled and dragged behind him.

A month later.

Silver stumbled slightly and let out a deep breath, she looked behind her and saw that Paradox was concentrating on the painting before him. She shook her head and flapped her wings to go upstairs.

Paradox glanced over to Silver and she was trying to fly up the stairs. She was two weeks due and she had gotten too big to fly so he helped her around the house a lot. She had also taken five months off from her duty as Celestia’s guard.

She looked at the stairs and let out a frustrated sigh. She stepped on the first step when Paradox came up and picked her up. “Oh Doxy, I can do it.”

He shook his head. “Nope, I won’t hear of it. You’re about to have our foal, and you need to conserve your energy.”carryme

“I don’t like this, I was used to not needing help and all I can do is walk a little distance.” She started to cry. “I feel like I’m all worthless.”

He kissed her. “You’re not worthless, you’re a gorgeous mare with a life inside of her.” Paradox nuzzled her neck.

“Why are you so sweet?” She asked in between sniffles.carrymecolored

“I take after my mother.” He whispered as he carried her upstairs. When they got upstairs he opened the door to their bedroom and placed her on the bed. “There we go. In the snuggly bed.”

She looked at him and suddenly blushed. “Doxy, did I ever tell you that I’m the envy of all the mares in Ponyville?”

“No, why is that?” He asked as he got on the bed and started to rub her shoulders and wing joints.

She sighed at the massage. “That feels wonderful.” Her wings spread out.

“You’re the envy why?” He asked as he looked at her wings. He bit his lip as he felt himself grow aroused. He rubbed her shoulder again.

“Yes, they all think you’re sexy and they all want you. They’re jealous of me. Some even say that I took you away from them.” She felt his paw stop rubbing her shoulder.

“Who said that?” He asked as he moved his paw over to her back.

“Some grey mare with a snobby attitude. She said you gave her a lot of attention, but you just stopped seeing her one day.” She felt him stop massaging her back and lean slowly over her.

She felt his lips touch her ear. “That mare told me that I was a monster and I’d never be loved. She laughed in my face and broke my heart. You never treated me like she treated me and I am grateful to this day that destiny brought us together.”

She blinked as she looked at him. “Doxy why did she do that to you?”

He shrugged. “It doesn’t matter. What matters now is that you just relax.” He whispered as he rubbed down her back with both paws. He was still aroused as he looked at her muscles in her back.

She nodded. “I wanted to punch her in the face then. Now I really want to punch her in the face.”

He grinned at her. “Silver, you are very sexy. Don’t worry about that mare she isn’t worth your beautiful wrath.” He moved his paw down her back feeling the muscles relax under his touch. He kissed down her neck slowly as he moved his paws to her thighs.

Silver melted into the bed as he kissed her. “I am grateful to have you in my life. I love you Doxy.”

He moved her tail to the side. “I love you too.” He murmured softly as he kissed along her mane. He was throbbing hard for her.

She moved her hips up. She let out a gasp when he slowly rubbed his arousal over her folds. “Mmm please.” She whispered.

She was wet for him and that made him want her more. “You’re wonderful.” He moaned out as he pushed into her carefully.

Silver began to pant as he made love to her. Every nerve in her body was electrified making every sensation enhanced. So much that she shuddered from an instantaneous orgasm. “Ah oh…yes…”

He blinked in shock as he felt her quiver around him, but he continued to make love to her pushing in deeply and pulling back. She felt tight and perfect he felt her body shudder under him as she tightened around him. “Oh uhh… Silver. You’re squeezing me like a vice…” He groaned out.

“Cannot help it. Oh Doxy! Ohhh!” She exclaimed as she came again.

He growled softly as he pushed deeply into her and grind up against her rear. “So tight, uhh by the eternal moon you feel so wonderful.” He released his pent up need into her.

Silver gasped when he released and she came again their orgasmic pleasure flowing together making them both feel euphoric.

He leaned over her and hugged her against him as he emptied into her. Giving her quick thrusts spilling every bit into her before pulling out of her tightness.

They both lay in the bed breathing hard from the love making. Soon both of them drifted off to sleep.

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 15


Silver was trying to read a book as Paradox stood next to a mirror and was making faces in it. She glanced at him. “What are you doing?”

“I’m working on my expressions.” He answered as he made a surprise look.

She sat up a little bit, she was six months pregnant. “Why?”

Paradox blinked and looked at her. “Well, I was going to keep it a surprise but since you asked…”

Silver looked at him. “Yes?”

“I’m going to try out for a role in a Broadneigh play.” He placed his paws on his cheeks.

Silver’s eyes widened. “That sounds great! Oh Doxy I hope you get it.”

He swallowed hard. “I hope so too, but there is some good competition out there.”

“I know you can do it. You’re really good at acting.” She smiled.

“If you say so. I can adapt to situations fast.” He grinned as he changed to look like a pony. He had deep blue eyes and black as night mane.

Silver smiled at him, she knew he could shape change into a pony because she had met him while he was acting like a drunk unicorn, trying to spy on Zero. “See, you have the role in the bag.”broadneigh

“Thank you, my love.” He trotted over to her and kissed her.

“Oh my. I hardly know you stranger. My husband will tear your arms out if he saw me kissing you.” She giggled.

Paradox laughed. “Silver. I love you.” He nuzzled her as he changed back and placed his paw on her pregnant belly. “I love this one too.”

“I do hope you get the role. You have so much talent. Are you going to audition as you or as a pony?” She asked.

He blinked at the question. “I hadn’t thought of that. What do you suggest I do?”

Silver smiled. “Be yourself my love. Then show them what you can do.” She then whispered. “You have a lot of talent. Especially in bed.”

He grinned at her. “Silver. How do you do that?”

She looked at him innocently. “Do what?”

“Make me instantly turned on?” He placed his paw on her cheek as he looked in her eyes.

“I don’t know.” She whispered back she looked at his face and saw the love in his eyes. “You do the same to me.”

They both looked up when there was urgent knocking on their front door.

“I wonder who that is?” He asked as he got up and walked to it.

“Silver! Paradox… Hurry up! It’s horrible…” A voice said on the other side.

“Zero?” Paradox said as he opened the door.

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 14


A few months along.

Silver was on her side sleeping comfortably after several times tossing and turning trying to get comfortable.sleepingsil

Paradox had awoken in the middle of the night. Since taking the medicine that Epona gave him, no other changes occurred to his body. He finally was able to retract his claws and his fangs weren’t has prominent as before. Although during mating, things changed. He looked over at Silver and sighed. He didn’t want to wake her up, but she looked so beautiful. Slowly he placed his paw on her swollen belly, he felt that familiar tingle and he smiled.

Silver’s eyes opened slowly at the feel of his paw. He moved his fingers through her fur slowly and softly. She sighed as he rubbed her fur. “Doxy…”

His ears went up and he looked at her guiltily. “I’m sorry that I woke you up. I just wanted to touch you.”

She smiled at him. “I’m hungry. So you didn’t really wake me up, the foal did.” As she said that, the baby suddenly moved in her belly and Paradox’s eyes widened it was the first time he felt it move.

“Silver…” He breathed out.

Silver nodded, “Yes, I felt it too.” She placed her hoof on her belly. “I think the foal is hungry.”

He sat up. “What does my love and our child want to eat?” He asked.

Silver thought about it. “Pancakes with grapple-berry jam.”

He licked his lips. “That sounds good. Yes my dearest.” He got up from bed giving her a kiss and nuzzling her belly. “I’ll be back soon.” He went down stairs.

Silver slowly moved up to sitting position and slowly rubbed her belly. “I wish I knew what was going on in there.” She could swear that she was bigger than the other pregnant mares at the Doctor’s waiting room. One was about the same term as her and she was smaller than her. “I bet there’re two of you in there.”

Paradox came in carrying a plate of pancakes smothered in grapple-berry jam. “For my love.”

“They look delicious.” She practically drooled over them as she started to devour them. “Oh my gods these are sinfully good.”

He watched her eat the whole thing and he blinked in surprise. “Whoa.”

Silver sighed in satisfaction. “Doxy, you’re a life saver. Those were delicious. Thank you.”

“You’re very welcome. Anything for my family.” He placed his paw on her belly as he leaned over and kissed her softly on the lips.

She put her hooves around him and pulled him into a deeper kiss. After the kiss she looked into his eyes. “Make love to me.”

His fangs suddenly grew at her demand and he smiled. “Oh yes my love… I’ll do what you wish.” He whispered as he moved against her and started to kiss along her neck.

She shuddered in desire as he kissed along her neck and he started to rub his paw over her flank slowly. “Ah… mmm.”

He growled low as he moved over her, looking into her eyes he rubbed his desire over her folds slowly. “You are so wet.” He whispered to her.

“Yes, oh… please…” She whispered as he teased her entrance.

Paradox pushed slowly into her and let out a soft moan. “Oh you’re tight… Silver.” He gripped her flank tightly.

She moaned in pleasure as he pushed deeply into her, he was larger than before and he felt good as he pushed and pulled into her. He rubbed just right over her button and she shuddered as she hit orgasm. “Ah Doxy… yes.”

He felt her climax and he panted with the feel of her, he pushed in deeper and pulled out then pushed in again. “Oh yes… Silver. Come for me again.” He moaned lustfully as he pulled and pushed faster.

She was panting with desire as he increased his speed. “Oh… oh yes! Oh Doxy please! Please!” She shook as she came again.

“That’s my girl.” He purred out as he pushed in deeply and released his pent-up desires. “Gods you’re hot.” He whispered as he kissed her softly. He pumped all his need into her and slowly pulled from her heat. “I love you.”

She panted as he snuggled against her. “I love you too, Doxy. Thank you.”

He grinned. “You know, I find you extremely sexy. Silver you are my love, my life, my forever.” He kissed her gently again.

“Oh Doxy.” She whispered back to him. “You say the most romantic things.”

He started to chuckle. “Of course. My parents raised me right.” He pulled her against him and she snuggled up against him, he placed his paw on her belly as they both fell asleep together.


Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 13


Silver was trying not to act nervous as she sat next to her mother at the restaurant. “Doxy should be here soon.”

Rainbow Dash chuckled. “What’s taking him so long?”

Silver shrugged. “I don’t know, let’s snack on these chips.” She started to eat the chips on the table. She nibbled on them since she really didn’t have an appetite. She had morning sickness for a couple of days and she didn’t want to start getting nauseous in front of her mom.

“Alright, but Paradox better get here soon or I’ll be a little grumpy.” Rainbow sighed as she picked up a chip.

Paradox appeared next to the table. “I’ve come with cake.” He placed the box in front of his mother-in-law.

“Are you always late for things?” Rainbow Dash asked him as she opened the box.

“No, I’m sorry.” He replied as her saw her start to open the box.

“I hope you like it.” Silver said as Paradox stood next to her placing his paw on her shoulder.

Rainbow Dash opened the box and looked at the cake then looked up at her daughter and son-in-law. “It’s a beautiful cake.” She saw the pacifiers on it. “Does this mean what I think it means?”

Paradox and Silver both nodded, Silver was blushing a lot as she looked at her mom. “Yes.”

Rainbow started to laugh and suddenly jumped up and flew over to them. “This is totally awesome! I’m gonna be a grandmother! Yes! In your face Apple Jack! I win again.” She hugged both Paradox and Silver. “Do you know what the baby will be?”

Paradox blinked. “What the baby will be?” He looked worried.

“She means a boy or girl Doxy.” Silver said to him. “No, we don’t know yet.”

Rainbow Dash was crying suddenly. “My baby is going to have a baby!” Silver started to hug her mom and pat her on the back. Paradox grinned as he sat down and looked at the cake, he wanted a bite.

“Can we have some cake?” He asked.

Rainbow Dash looked over at Paradox she had tears running down her cheeks. “Just wait, I’m having a moment here.”

He started to laugh deeply and saluted. “Yes ma’am.”

“Silver, you married a smart aleck.” Rainbow smiled between sniffles.

“I know.” Silver smiled because she had started to cry too.

Both stopped embracing and walked over to sit down. “Ok, we’ll have cake now.” Rainbow stated as she took in a deep breath. Paradox held a chair out for Silver to sit and went over for his mother-in-law to pull out her chair, but she sat down before he could. He sighed and went to sit back down.

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 12


The cake was small and decorated beautifully. Pinkie Pie looked at it proudly. “Sprinkle, you’ve out done yourself!”pinkiecake

“Silver Dash requested it for her mother.” Sprinkle said proudly.

“The colors really match her personality.” Pinkie inspected it. “Rainbows all over and… a couple pacifiers on the top. Wait…” You could literally see the wheels in Pinkie’s brain working. “Does this mean?”

She watched her mom and waited for her to say it. “Hmm?”

“Paradox and Silver are expecting?”

“Yes.” Sprinkle nodded.

She let out a squeal of happiness. “Two? Twins? Please be twins… please.” Pinkie giggled.

“They don’t know yet…” She said to her mom. “I just thought two pacifiers looked good.”

The door of Sugar Cube Corner gave a small chime. “I’m coming.” Pinkie said and walked out.

Paradox was standing and waiting. Pinkie grinned at him. “Para… dox…”

He grinned at her she noticed that he looked little different but didn’t care. “Pinkie… Pie.” He replied back.

“Gonna tell your Auntie Pinkie something?” She said with a huge grin.

He casually looked around. “Hmm, no I don’t think so.”

She bounced over to him. “Dox, tell me… please!”

He watched Pinkie Pie bounce. “Pinkie, I’ve always wondered something…”

She stopped mid bounce. “Ask me anything! What is it?”

“You’re random and almost chaotic.” He paused for a moment and looked at her. “How come you and dad never hooked up?”

Pinkie fell on the ground and looked at Paradox. “Wow! You surprised me with that question. Very out of left field there Dox.”

He nodded. “I’m curious is all… You don’t have to tell me.”

Pinkie Pie stood up slowly and looked at him. “You are trying to distract me… I know your ploy!” She grinned again. “You are not going to distract me! Tell me if it’s true… Are you and Silver expecting?”

Paradox looked at her for a long moment. “Expecting what?”

Sprinkle Icing came out of the back carrying a cake box, she placed it on the counter. “Paradox, she already knows, just tell her.”

“Yes, Pinkie. Silver and I are expecting a little one.”

“Just… one?” Pinkie asked.

“I guess so, I don’t know.” He muttered as he walked over to the counter. “How much do I owe for the cake?”

“You should bring Silver over for lunch some time. I want to see her.” Pinkie giggled as she operated the register and told him the total.

“Alright Pinkie, but today we’re having lunch with Rainbow Dash.” He placed bits on the counter paying her. He picked the box up. “See you ladies later.” He then disappeared.

“Paradox looked so…” Sprinkle started to say and was interrupted by her mother.

“Sexy.” Pinkie finished.

Sprinkle blushed. “Mom!”

Pinkie Pie looked at her daughter. “What?”

“You’re old enough to be his mother!” Sprinkle made a face.

“Duh!” Pinkie said. “Doesn’t mean I can’t look.” She hopped out of the room and back into the kitchen. Sprinkle shook her head and realized she was still blushing… because what her mother said was true, he was sexy.

Story: Life with Paradox – Chapter 11


He was laughing, why was he laughing? It wasn’t that funny. Why won’t he stop?laughingparadox

Silver looked at him. “Are you feeling alright?”

Paradox kept laughing as tears fell from his eyes. “No.” He managed to say and caught his breath as he looked at the doctor. “What did you say?”

“It’s a high possibly that Silver is going to have twins.” Epona repeated.

He was about to burst out laughing again. “Why would we have twins?” He asked as the urge to snicker rose.

“Your father was a twin, you’re a twin. High probability.” Epona answered. She looked at Paradox and blinked. “Are you alright?”

He stared at her. “Yeah. Peachy. Why?” He snickered and tried to compose himself.

“You have a crazed look on your face. When did your fangs grow in?” She asked.

“I’m not crazed am I? And I had fangs for a while they just recently grew in larger.”

Epona looked doubtfully at him. “Come here.”

He nodded as he snickered moving closer to Epona. “Yes?”

She looked into his eyes and then made him open his mouth. She looked at his paws, horns and fangs. “Unusual fur growth, claws won’t retract… hmm. Growth potion?” She asked casually.

Silver and Paradox looked at her in shock. “Yes.” they said together.

“You youngsters always in a hurry.” She muttered.

“Wait, no it was an accidental ingestion.” Paradox grinned he was still feeling giddy with laughter.

“Oh, you should have come to me sooner. Sounds like magical poisoning.” She disappeared and instantly reappeared holding with her magic, a bottle. “This should stop anything new that shall come up. It will also help with your claws and fangs.”

He looked at the bottle, it had some purple capsules in it. “I don’t trust it.”

“I didn’t ask if you trusted the medicine. Take one a day for five days and you’ll notice the difference. If you want to stop the changes to your body, I suggest you take it.” She looked at him.

“Can I take one now?” He asked and started to chuckle.

“Please do.” The Epona muttered.

Paradox took a capsule out of the bottle and looked at it. “It’s the size of a horse pill.”

Silver giggled. “You’re part horse.”

He nodded. “Yeah, I am… whoa awesome. Talking horses.” He took the capsule.

“As I was saying…” Epona turned to look at Silver. “You might have twins, but probably not. But I’d never rule that out. Look who the father is. It runs in his family. Yet they’re fraternal twins so…”

Silver nodded. “So the possibility is smaller of having twins.”

Epona nodded. “Let me check you.”

Paradox was sitting in a chair looking at his paws. Just staring at them and not paying attention to the Doctor or his mate. When he heard a heartbeat he sat up and looked over. “What is that?”

“That is your wife’s heart.” Epona replied and waited until he walked over before she moved the Doppler wand down. The sound changed to rapid fluttering noises. “That sound is the foal’s heart beat.”

Paradox’s mouth suddenly hung open. He looked at Silver and saw her smile at him. He placed his paws on his head. “I heard this before, but it’s totally different when it’s your own.” He smiled as he went over to Silver. “That’s our baby. Our foal. Silver, you’re awesome.” He kissed her.

Silver was blushing. “Oh… you helped.”

“With the fun part!” He laughed. Silver giggled along with him as she blushed.

Epona sighed and rolled her eyes. “Paradox, be sure to take those pills daily until they are gone. Plus help your wife as much as possible.”

He looked at her. “Help her do what?”

“Things around the house. Take care of her.”

“I do that already.” He smiled and kissed Silver’s cheek. “Don’t I?”

“Looking sexy isn’t helping. She means doing chores.” Silver replied as she pushed him with her hoof.

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 102 -103


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.


“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?”

Story: Paradox’s Despair – Chapter 101


Paradox was instantly awake. “Lilly is in labor.”

Silver yawned as she looked at him. “What Doxy?” She asked, she had been trying to keep him awake for a few hours and she felt worn out.

“Lilly needs me to help her. Silver come on. I need to give her my strength.” He was on his feet fast as he grabbed Silver’s hoof. “No time to rest my love.”

Silver yawned again. “Okay.” She let him drag her down the hallway.

He turned a corner and looked back at her when she hadn’t caught up with him. “Silver?”

“Can’t you just use your teleportation magic and just pop us over to Lilly?” She asked tiredly.

“You’re a genius!” He replied as he grabbed her and they suddenly appeared in the room with Zero and Lilly.

Lilly looked up at her brother and she started to cry. “Thank goodness you’re here!”

“I’m here for you Lilly.” Paradox said as he went to his sister. “You need to get into the bed, you cannot foal on the cold floor.” He picked Lilly up and carried her over to a bed. “Your Brother will be here for you.” He then turned to look at Zero. “Go and get Mom and any pony else you can.”

“I’ll be back Lilly.” Zero nodded and ran out of the room.

Lilly nodded as she sniffled. “I’ll be ok.”

“What about me?” Silver asked.

Paradox stopped for a moment. “Whoa, that hurt!” He looked at his sister in surprise.

“Sorry.” Lilly said as grit her teeth. “The pain is getting worse and I have to tell you something…”

“No… shush…” He said as he looked at Silver. “Come here Silver… I need you to be sure we both don’t pass out from pain.” He suddenly grabbed his stomach and let out a groan. Lilly gasped and groaned as well.

“I’m confused!” Silver said suddenly. “It’s like you both are going to have a foal at once!”

“I’m just trying to take all her pain.” Paradox said as he gasped. “I’m not having a foal… she is… I just want her to transfer her pain to me.”

“I can’t give you all of my pain Dox.” Lilly cried out. “I really have to tell you something!”

“Can it wait?” Paradox asked.

“No… No it can’t.” Lilly hissed through the pain.

Silver pat her hoof. “Tell us Lilly.”

“I had fallen asleep… before I… went into labor, I had a dream…”

Paradox looked at her in shock. “We weren’t supposed to sleep.”

She shook her head then let out a groan of pain. “I know… The shadow was there and…”

Paradox shook his head, “No… I know already… Don’t tell me. The foal is safe, believe me.”

Fluttershy came into the room and slid across the floor she stopped to look at Lilly, Silver and Paradox. “Good, I’m not too late. I sent a message to Dr. Calliope, but I think she’s taking a break because she just had a foal herself a month ago.”

Fluttershy looked at her son in shock. “Doxy? You look like you’re in pain.”

“I’m alright Mom. Lilly needs help.” He stumbled back against the wall.

Silver went over to him. “Relax Dox. Fluttershy and I can help Lilly.”

He nodded and slid down to the floor as pain was shooting through him. “It’s kind of hard to relax…”

Zero ran into the room panting as Discord pushed him aside. “Zero found me as soon as Twilight and I got back from Tartarus.” He went over to Lilly and Fluttershy.

“Daddy… Zero…” Lilly cried lightly and let out a moan as she felt pain run over her stomach.

Zero trotted over after he caught his breath. “Lilly, I’m sorry I shouldn’t have… fallen asleep… I should’ve stayed awake.”

Discord turned to look at him. “You fell asleep? Who was keeping Lilly from sleeping?”

“It’s okay Dad…” Paradox got up while holding onto the wall. “It’s not Zeros fault.”

“What happened? I need to know.”

Lilly let out a loud yell. “I fell asleep, don’t blame Zero!” She panted as she looked at Discord. “I’ll tell you what happened… I…” She let out a moan and started to cry.

“Ah!” Paradox suddenly fell to his knees. “That is painful!!!”

Discord looked from his son to his daughter and back again. “What is going on?”

Paradox grit his teeth and feigned a smile. “I’m trying to take Lilly’s pain away.”

“Doxy? You can do that?” Fluttershy asked, she had been wondering why her son was acting the way he was.

Discord walked over to his son and put his paw on his head. Paradox blinked a couple times. “Thanks dad.” He sighed and leaned against the wall with a relieved smile on his face.

“Now Lilly. Tell me what happened? It’s important what happened in your dream.”

LillyRose panted as she tried to calm down. “I fell asleep and I dreamed the shadow, it was stronger…” She grit her teeth and stifled a cry. “I was ready to fight it, but it said it didn’t want me… and started to wrap is tentacles around my pregnant belly.” She looked up at her father. “It wants to possess my foal.”

Paradox suddenly stood up. “No! This uncle won’t allow it.”

Fluttershy gasped. “Can it do that?”

Discord shook his head, “I don’t know what it can do, I confronted my brother, he’s not doing this directly, but I do think he’s involved in some way.”

“You said that uncle Sorrow was dead.” Paradox mumbled as he looked at LillyRose then back to Discord.

“He is.” He muttered. “He’s a demon, and he has no control over us.”

Paradox’s ears went back as his eyes widened. “Wh… what?” He swallowed hard. “He’s been haunting my dreams! He’s the demon! He trying to make me miserable.”

“He’s trying to make you his replacement.” Discord growled. “I told him to leave you alone.”

“Replacement? What am I supposed to replace?”

“He wants you to bring the end.”

Every pony stared at Discord except for Fluttershy she was trying hard not to be emotional. She spoke first. “Your father and his siblings were destined to be the destruction of Equestria. Aunt Misery is Famine, your father is War, your aunt Rose is Death and your uncle was Pestilence.”

Paradox blinked several times and LillyRose was so shocked that she forgot her labor pains.

“Wait a minute?” Silver Dash spoke up. “This Pestilence demon wants my Doxy to take his place?”

Sighing deeply Discord nodded. “That is his intention.”

“Forget that!” Paradox yelled. “I’m not some puppet to amuse my uncle. Dad, how do I get rid of him?”

“You don’t. He’s already dead. The only way to not become him is to be happy and you’re already on that road and you did that all on your own.” Discord said as a smile returned to his face. “Now LillyRose, your baby is safe. The question remains are you still in labor?”

LillyRose looked at her father and blinked. “I… Don’t think I am in labo… Ooh! Nope, spoke too soon.” She let out a gasp. “I really do think… The foal is coming.” She leaned forward suddenly and let out a groan.

Zero’s ears went forward. “Alright!” He pointed at Silver Dash. “Silver. Get some water.” Silver saluted and trotted from the room. “Paradox, I need you to find some towels and blankets for your sister. This may get messy.” He glanced at Discord suddenly and gulped at the look his father-in-law gave him, but he continued. “Lady Fluttershy, can you help your daughter?”

“I can, but I really think we need a doctor here.” Fluttershy said softly.

“I’ll try and get Epona.” Discord said suddenly and disappeared.

“Zero…?” Lilly panted out.

He went to his wife’s side. “Yes Lilly?” He said as he looked at her and placed his hoof against her shoulder.

“I… Think you made an impression on dad.” She said and took in a deep breath.

He blinked. “I did?”

She nodded and suddenly let out a scream. “Ah! Oh, I wish this didn’t hurt…”
