  1. >“Sister, where are you at? It is almost time for sunrise, are you ready?”
  2. “Why is someone yelling in my head?!”
  3. >Twilight looked confused while Lunanon just laughed.
  4. >“Princess, it’s just our sister Celestia. You will get used to it.”
  5. “Wonderful. How do I answer back, and more importantly, set the moon?”
  6. >“Just think what you want to say to her as you picture her visage in your mind.”
  7. >Well, all this magic crap was weird, but at least it was apparently pretty easy.
  8. >I will be back at the castle shortly, I’m ready when you are.
  9. >“Take it away, then.”
  10. “Alright, so what do I do to get the moon to go down? Wait, let me guess, visualize myself moving it.”
  11. >Lunanon giggles again.
  12. >“You’re picking this up fairly well. Though it helps to be in the body of one of the most advanced and experienced magic users in all of Equestria.”
  13. “Wow, don’t be so hard on yourself there.”
  14. >Judging by her perplexed expression, Lunanon didn’t get your sarcasm.
  15. “Nevermind, here goes nothing.”
  16. >You focus in on the moon, feeling your horn charge up, then push with all your might on the moon.
  17. >And it speeds down below the horizon.
  18. >“We believe you put perhaps a bit too much force on that.”
  19. “Gee, you think? I was expecting it to be heavier.”
  20. >“Hey guys, didn’t think you’d be up this early!”
  21. >Oh good, now Rainbow Dash is here.
  22. >It was useless to try to hide the situation from her. She knew you too well.
  23. >Actually, that gives you an idea.
  24. “Twilight, do you think you would be able to spend a few days in Canterlot with me? You know, try to help me not seem so suspicious?”
  25. >“I think so,  and that should help speed things up trying to find a solution since I won’t be traveling back and forth.”
  26. >Rainbow Dash stares at the two of you, then at Lunanon.
  27. >“Um, what did I miss?”
  28.  
  29.  
  30. >“Ahahahaha, how do you like being a princess, Anon?”
  31. “Rainbow, I’m warning you, shut up.”
  32. >Dash keeps laughing anyways, oblivious to your building anger.
  33. >The cork finally pops.
  34. >You grab Rainbow by the tail with your magic, and lift her up into the air, her head and eyes level with yours.
  35. >She stops laughing, and genuine fear creeps into her face.
  36. “It has been a long ass night, and now I have to deal with royal duty bullshit until this whole fucking mess is sorted out. So please. SHUT. UP.
  37. >Well, the Royal Canterlot Voice was easy to master when anger was flowing through your veins.
  38. >Dash is visibly shaken by now, she only manages a whisper.
  39. >“I’m sorry.”
  40. “That’s better.”
  41. >You release her and set her on the ground gently.
  42. “Now then, until this whole mess gets put back to normal, Twilight has agreed to tag along with me to Canterlot to help fit in. Rainbow, if you can, I want you to stay with Lunanon and help her figure things out. If you aren’t busy with weather duties.”
  43. >Rainbow snaps out of her stupor.
  44. >“Free of weather duty and ready to help!”
  45. “Thank you, and sorry if I had to get a bit cross with you. I need to get back to the castle now, I told Celestia I’d be there.”
  46. >“I just need to stop by the library and get Spike and a few things, I’ll be right behind you.”
  47. “Thanks Twi.”
  48. >You turn to Lunanon and Rainbow.
  49. “If  possible, we will come by every night to update the progress. And Lunanon?”
  50. >“Yes?”
  51. “No Superbird without my permission and supervision.”
  52. >Lunanon pouts.
  53. >“You’re no fun.”
  54. “I know, I like taking everyone’s fun away. I’ll see you two tonight, hopefully.”
  55. >“Anon, watch out for my sister.”
  56. “…what do you mean by that, Lunanon?”
  57. >“You’ll see.”
  58.  
  59. >“We really need to work on keeping your emotions in check.”
  60. “I know, I’ve been told that before.”
  61. >You and Twilight had teleported to the castle and had a short conversation with Celestia before heading off to the archives.
  62. >Fortunately, Celestia didn’t seem to notice anything out of the ordinary, aside from not using Luna’s trademark outdated dialect.
  63. >Losing a bet with Anon worked well enough as an excuse, you thought.
  64. >“Anon, it’s not so simple as a ‘I’m working on it.” Not at this point in time.”
  65. “What do you mean?”
  66. >Damn, how big is this castle? Feels like you have been walking for 15 minutes since leaving the throne room.
  67. >“Acting as Princess Luna, you are going to have some frustrations during day to day duties, you need to keep your composure. Luna is known for her cool demeanor, even under pressure.”
  68. “On Earth, I was used to seeing excessive stupidity, especially when it came to politics. I got this.”
  69. >Twilight shakes her head. Something else is bothering her.
  70. >“Anon, that’s not the major thing I’m worried about. You know Luna’s history, and while we defeated Nightmare Moon, no one is exactly positive she is gone for good.”
  71. “So in other words, your fear is I get so angry, I Hulk out?
  72. >Confusion is evident on Twilight’s face.
  73. “Nevermind. But I don’t get it, I thought Nightmare Moon WAS Luna.”
  74. >“It’s….. complicated to explain. We can discuss it more later, because here we are, the royal archives!”
  75. “So what do I need to look for in all of these books? I’m completely lost.”
  76. >“Well….. Um……. I guess maybe you didn’t need to come with me?”
  77. >Facehoof again.
  78. “Well, in that case, I guess I’ll head to “my” room and get some sleep. See you later.”
  79. >Rather than walk all the way back, you teleport back to your chambers.
  80. >You had not been able to do that to get to the library since you had never been there, and thus could not visualize it.
  81. >Beautiful, deep blue hues greet you when you open your eyes.
  82. >The walls, drapery, everything was in some sort of shade of blue.
  83. >Wonder what Luna’s favorite color is.
  84. >Meanwhile, the trim on the aforementioned drapes - as well as the furniture - contrasted nicely, with a pale silver hue that shone like the stars she controlled.
  85. >Well, the ones you controlled, for now.
  86. >Wearily, you pull back the covers on the bed and climb in.
  87. >Almost as soon as your head hits the pillow, you are out like a light.
  88.  
  89. >“Rise and shine Luna,  your shift is up!”
  90. >Ugh, did you really sleep that long?
  91. >You roll out of bed half asleep.
  92. >And instantly fall to the ceiling.
  93. >Wait, what?
  94. “What in the hell is going on?!”
  95. >You hear Celestia outside the room trying not to laugh.
  96. >You look around the room. Somehow everything is upside down.
  97. “Really Celestia?! How in the hell did you pull this off without waking me?”
  98. >Celestia pokes her head in and gives you a smirk.
  99. >“You’re a heavy sleeper.”
  100. >Her horn glows, and the whole room seems to rotate.
  101. >Along with you rolling across the floor.
  102. “Ow. You could have warned me, Celly.”
  103. >“Where would be the fun in that? By the way, tonight is probably going to be rather slow, again. Only a handful of p0nies waiting for open court with you, and just a bit of paperwork.”
  104. “Oh joy. I’ll be out in just a sec. Where’s Twilight?”
  105. >“She had to check in on the library real quick, she should be back soon.”
  106. >Looks like you’re going to have to wing  it for the first bit tonight.
  107. >Thanks Twilight.
