  1. >she slowly stirred
  2. >everything hurt
  3. >”Dash! Are you alright?”
  4. >she opened her eyes to a familiar face
  5. >”Twilight? What happened?”
  6. >”Queen Chrysalis got the jump on us. Princess Celestia, Luna, Cadence and I were all taken and you tried to bust us out, alone.”
  7. >that *did* sound like the sort of ballsy move Dash would do
  8. >she tried to stand but her head pounded so she clutched her temple
  9. > and she felt a wet, sticky patch of matted hair
  10. >Dash grimaced at the sting and winced at the blood on her hand
  11. >as well as bruises on her arms, legs…
  12. >”Easy, Rainbow, they beat you pretty hard.”
  13. >Dash got to her feet
  14. >Twilight (frustratingly) dwarfed her, being two feet taller than her 5’2 (what with Twilight being a princess and all) but that never stopped *The* Rainbow Dash from kicking ass and taking names!
  15. >she remembered fragments now; Chrysalis attacked the group on route to a royal visit to Manehattan, disguised as the (presumably) already kidnapped Cadence and her few changeling followers replacing the escort
  16. >Dash was already at the city and taking in a flight in preparation for a Wonderbolts event during said visit, just so happened to see a magic battle taking place in the distance and went to help
  17. >the rest of their friends were busy back in Ponyville
  18. >Dash had flashes of Chrysalis wielding some sort of wooden ball that could absorb magic since she somehow managed to beat *all* three princesses at once
  19. >Dash saw Chrysalis sapping Celestia’s magic, charged in and got blindsided by a blast of magic, surrounded by changelings and…
  20. >the rest was a blur of fists and feet and pain
  21. >”I bandaged you up as best as I could,” Twilight said and gently held Dash steady, “but I’m no medic. You’ve probably got concussion, and you’re pretty banged up besides, but nothing as serious as your head injury.”
  22. >Dash felt awful, and not just physically
  23. >she’d screwed up her big rescue and now everyone was in serious danger
  24. >”Sorry…”
  25. >Twilight smiled and hugged her closer. “Don’t be. Chrysalis caught an all by surprise, and you did your best.”
  26. >except Dash’s best was a waste, or that’s how she felt right now
  27. >to distract herself, she tried to get her bearings
  28. >Dash and Twilight were in an office, the door was covered in hardened changeling goop
  29. >all the same, Dash felt restless, stood and tried to break it apart
  30. >”I’ve already tried that,” Twilight said. “She’s got the walls laced with that anti magic material. I can cast some magic, but if it goes near the walls, it dissipates.”
  31. >Dash stubbornly continued to struggle until she came over dizzy and her vision whited out
  32. >she slumped against the wall and growled, “stupid goop!”
  33. >”Propolis.”
  34. >”Gesundheit.”
  35. >”No,” Twilight said with a roll of her eyes, “it’s called propolis. Insect resin. The changelings *are* part insect, so it stands to reason they secrete the same substances.”
  36.  
  37. >as she recovered, Dash asked, ”so what’re we gonna do?”
  38. >”Simple! You’re going to perish!”
  39. >a familiar and reviled figure buzzed in on insectoid wings
  40. >the slender figure of Queen Chrysalis
  41. >or she used to be slender; somehow her body had filled out to a full figured, and taller from her former 7ft by a whole foot
  42. >Twilight immediately fired as strong a magic blast as she could muster at the queen
  43. >Chrysalis cackled and swatted the blast away with something in her hand
  44. >she held a glowing, wood-like sphere, which pulsed and shot a swirling beam at Twilight, who cried out in pain as she was lifted off the ground
  45. >”I’ve already drained all your precious fellow princesses powers. With yours in hand, I’ll be truly unstoppable!”
  46. >”Twilight!” Dash yelled and launched at Chrysalis, who fluttered above the dizzy, haphazard tackle
  47. >then landed and stomped on Dash’s head, and she resumed attacking Twilight with the artefact
  48. >Twilight writhed and hissed in pain
  49. >her horn appeared and rays of pink light were stripped from it and into the sphere
  50. >then Twilight began to shrink
  51. >her princess enhanced curves flattened down, her height dwindled and her wings faded and vanished
  52. >until, with a satisfied sneer from Chrysalis, Twilight fell onto her knees, swayed, and slumped heavily against the wall, her clothes loose and hanging off her much smaller body
  53. >”The power of all the princesses is all mine at last!” Chrysalis screamed in triumph, then stared down at Twilight. “But I’m not done with you yet…”
  54. >”No, leave her alone,” Dash whimpered as she fought against the pain
  55. >Chrysalis stepped off of Dash and picked Twilight off the floor by her neck
  56. >”You cost me my hive. Most of my people! You wounded my pride!! I won’t take any chances with you!”
  57. >Twilight choked and writhed as Chrysalis squeezed her throat with a wild, sharp tooth grin
  58. >Dash gritted her teeth and stood
  59. >”Let her go,” she growled, and staggered toward Chrysalis
  60. >the queen glanced behind her and flipped her slick, straight, deep green hair with a casual flourish
  61. >”Wait your turn, whelp!”
  62. >Dash charged and took a swing anyway
  63. >and received a kick to the ribs for her troubles
  64. >Dash stumbled and wobbled on her legs
  65. >once more she collapsed onto her hands and knees
  66. >”Dash, no…” Twilight choked
  67. >everything spun, but Dash dug deep
  68. >it didn’t matter what happened to her
  69. >Twilight was more important
  70. >she staggered to standing as Chrysalis glared at her, then back at Twilight
  71. >then Chrysalis chuckled
  72. >”It would be more entertaining to hear Twilight’s pathetic pleading as I crush the life out of one of her oh-so-precious friends.”
  73.  
  74. >Chrysalis tossed Twilight against the wall, then went to grab Dash
  75. >except with a flap of her wings, Dash launched up and kneed Chrysalis in the face
  76. >”I ain’t done yet, bitch!” Dash yelled and dived in with a follow up punch
  77. >Chrysalis growled and took flight, and ascended to get distance, but Dash was unrelenting, striking and kicking, zipping around her and preventing the queen from recovering
  78. >Dash had to press the advantage, she didn’t even need to see well, Dash just had to keep it up and hope something, *anything* would happen that would help
  79. >Chrysalis flew ever higher from the relentless barrage, until she reached a small passage hidden amongst the resin-covered walls
  80. >the queen attempted to flee through the space
  81. >and in that distracted moment, Dash latched onto the arm holding the sphere
  82. >”Let go of me, you pathetic worm!”
  83. >either from the building delirium or out of being insulted, Dash sank her teeth into Chrysalis’ arm as hard and as deep as possible
  84. >Chrysalis snarled in pain
  85. >Dash doubled down by twisting herself and bending Chrysalis’ arm against the joint and tearing out a chunk of flesh out with her teeth
  86. >and the orb fell free!
  87. >Twilight tried to stand but was still dazed
  88. >Chrysalis gasped and went to chase the orb, only for Dash to release her arm and use the queen’s face as a starting block
  89. >she kicked off of Chrysalis’s head and reached for the artefact
  90. >but the exertion finally took hold, and she plunged down in free fall, landed on the orb as it struck the ground, and blacked out
  91.  
  92. >Chrysalis watched as her plan came unfurled by this pathetic midget of a pegasus!
  93. >the Seed flashed and exploded with all the contained power of Celestia, Luna and Twilight, blasting the walls and her carefully formed trap and antimagic-strewn lair couldn’t contain it
  94. >she couldn’t even enjoy the smug satisfaction of that Rainbow Dash twerp or that insufferable Twilight Sparkle dying in the blast
  95. >the nature of their insipid ‘friendship’ magic meant they were unharmed from the blast
  96. >for Chrysalis though, as the Seed hadn’t had a chance to convert it for her own use, as she had to empower herself with Cadence’s power, so the raw magic scalded her as she not only was struck by the blast, but sent into, and through, a nearby wall
  97. >Chrysalis slammed into the grass outside
  98. >everything was painful
  99. >she saw stars
  100. >all she could hear was a high pitched whine
  101. >the warehouse collapsed, and Chrysalis once more hoped the structure would finish the job
  102. >but a that hope was dashed when she saw her few subjects, unconscious and bound together
  103. >and a much smaller, slimmer, wingless as plain pink-haired Princess Celestia stood over her with a firm, determined glare
  104. >and holding a hammer
  105. >she slammed it down on Chrysalis’ horn
  106. >it cracked and sent a brain-shaking pain through her head
  107. >Chrysalis knew the blow would render her magic null until the crack was healed
  108. >while she was dazed, Chrysalis was flipped over and bound with a length of rope
  109. >”Sister, I have found Twilight!” Luna called out. “Ah, and her friend… but she does not look well, but… oh no.”
  110. >Celestia glanced away from Chrysalis, presumably at her feeble sister
  111. >”What’s wrong?”
  112. >”She is gravely injured!”
  113. >Twilight’s voice then said, “where is that orb? If we can get our magic out of it, I could help treat her, or at least teleport her to a doctor!”
  114. >”Here! I see it but…” Luna said, but sighed, “it’s inert…”
  115. >Chrysalis cackled. “I may not have won, I shall relish in your pain at watching one of the elements perish!”
  116. >Twilight came into view, with a similarly depowered Luna, carrying the bloodied and battered form of Dash. ”B- but… all that magic can’t have just vanished! Where could…”
  117. >Twilight frowned and seemed lost in thought for a moment, then shook her head
  118. >”Whatever, Dash is more important right now!”
  119. >Luna handed the Seed to Celestia, who examined it, then scowled down at Chrysalis
  120. >”How does this work? Tell me!”
  121. >”As if I’d tell you,” Chrysalis said and sneered
  122. >”Well uncover its secrets in time, sister,” Luna said and patted Celestia on the shoulder. “Let us tend to our friend first.”
  123. >”Ah, she’s waking up!”
  124.  
  125. >Dash couldn’t see
  126. >it was too bright
  127. >”Rainbow? Try not to move.”
  128. >she stood anyway, she didn’t feel much pain
  129. >”Where is she!?”
  130. >Dash put up her fists
  131. >”I’m gonna kick that bug’s ass!”
  132. >she saw an unfamiliar silhouette… dark colours?
  133. >gotta be Chrysalis!
  134. >”I’ve got you now.”
  135. >Dash took a wild swing
  136. >only for her foe to grab, twist and lock Dash’s arm behind her back
  137. >”I may not have my magic,” Luna said, “but I keenly remember how to fight. I believe you should relax, Rainbow Dash, lest your delirium cause you to hurt yourself.”
  138. >Dash’s vision cleared, slowly but surely
  139. >Luna was… built like Dash was; wiry and well toned, though lacking her wings and her hair was a plain, two toned dark blue on a 5’7 and modestly curvy body
  140. >Celestia was beside her, still wildly feminine but far more restrained in her curves, and a very *normal* (though still lofty) 6ft and with hair that reminded Dash of Fluttershy
  141. >and, lastly, Twilight, as if they’d first met back in Ponyville, so many years ago, 5’4, cute and a little bit of chubbiness
  142. >quietly sulking and bound with rope, Chrysalis sneered up at Dash, who then stuck a middle finger up at the queen
  143. >Celestia asked, “are you alright? You seem to have made a strangely rapid recovery.”
  144. >Twilight looked Dash over, and frowned
  145. >”She’s right. Your bruises are almost gone. And your head wound looks more like a graze than the deep cut it was when you were thrown in with me.”
  146. >Dash’s head suddenly throbbed again
  147. >”I think you spoke too soon… hell, it hurts!”
  148. >it wasn’t the side of her head…
  149. >it was her forehead
  150. >she screamed in pain as she felt supporting hands slowly lower her to the ground
  151. >then, a red hot shiver ran through her body
  152. >”Oh my…” Celestia said
  153. >”I don’t believe it,” Twilight said under her breath
  154. >Dash’s pain faded
  155. >”I’m getting real sick of these headaches.”
  156. >she reached up to rub her forehead
  157. >and gasped as her hand hit something
  158. >something connected to her head
  159. >a horn
  160. >”Twilight? What’s happened to me?”
  161. >”You’re… an alicorn.”
  162.  
  163. >Dash paced back and forth, her wings twitching and flexing as she tugged her hair and her new horn at random intervals, while stammering and fretting
  164. >more worrying, her horn kept glowing through a full spectrum of colours in random pulses
  165. >”Rainbow, there’s no reason to panic,” Twilight said as she tried to keep up with her
  166. >”I’m not panicking, *you’re* panicking!”
  167. >Dash winced and suddenly blinked from her current location to a few feet off the ground, and landed in an awkward heap
  168. >”We should coach you in the use of magic,” Celestia said and helped Dash up. “Even if this is a temporary arrangement, I suspect we will need our powers to solve this problem.”
  169. >”And it’s most fortuitous that they now reside in a friend, rather than someone undesirable,” Luna said and glowered at Chrysalis
  170. >the changeling queen smouldered with a low rage as she stared at Dash
  171. >Twilight grabbed Dash by the shoulders. “Rainbow Dash! Focus on me.”
  172. >Dash still looked deep in her confusion, but met Twilight’s gaze
  173. >”The worst thing you can do is remain in a high stress state. We don’t know to what extent your transformation has taken, but thankfully it seems to be relatively mild. Like mine had when Celestia helped me ascend, my powers weren’t too much greater than as a unicorn, so I simply had to focus on flight and the rest came with time.”
  174. >Dash nodded and sighed. “You’re right. Just gotta keep it cool. We’ll deal with this mess in a snap.”
  175. >Dash snapped her fingers and her horn flashed in a rainbow light
  176. >Twilight suddenly shrank until she was a few inches tall
  177. >”What the hell?” Twilight squeaked
  178. >”Sorry! I… I don’t know how I did that!”
  179. >Dash picked up her tiny friend
  180. >Celestia narrowed her eyes and smirked. “You were considering your problems, I assume?”
  181. >”Uh… I guess?”
  182. >”And on her advice, you were considering the issues as lesser. Smaller, perhaps?”
  183. >”I think so?”
  184. >Celestia walked behind Dash and rested her hands on her shoulders
  185. >”I want you to imagine you’re flying. Consider how big this land is, and how small they can be from above.”
  186. >Dash nodded and followed as directed
  187. >”And now consider the remnants of the warehouse, and how large and looming it is from the ground.”
  188. >a large portion of the building remained upright
  189. >it seemed a strange thing to focus on
  190. >a building was a bullding, nothing special
  191. >but… in the grand scheme of things, it was small
  192. >yet it had a presence, she guessed, and it was kinda scary after what almost happened not that long ago
  193. >Celestia whispered, ”now focus on Twilight. How small she seems when you’re flying above her. Imagine descending to meet her.”
  194. >she did
  195. >her horn glowed
  196. >and Twilight re-enlarged back to her former size
  197.  
  198. >”Magic is often a matter of understanding and perspective, Celestia continued
  199. >Luna asked, “are you well, Twilight?”
  200. >she checked herself over and said, “looks like it. Good job, Rainbow!”
  201. >”Okay,” Dash said and mopped her brow (and grimaced as she smacked her horn again). “We’ve got this.”
  202. >she suddenly trembled
  203. >”Oh, c’mon! What now!?”
  204. >the depowered princesses all watched as Dash looked down at herself
  205. >she was dressed in a scuffed, torn and slightly bloody training suit, with the zip undone to show her sports bra beneath
  206. >which was where the first changes appeared
  207. >Dash’s watched in wonder as her small, almost flat chest suddenly swelled
  208. >her tiny sports bra was rapidly overwhelmed as it strained and, with a dramatic crack, the strap gave way and launched the supportive garment several feet away
  209. >nestled and bunched into an enticing cleavage, rested two full-handful sized tits, the nips just barely concealed by the track jacket
  210. >before anyone could say a word, Dash shivered again
  211. >the ankle-length track pants quickly pulled higher, revealing her well toned calves as her legs stretched longer
  212. >Dash’s thighs bulged with muscle and filled up the pant-legs to capacity until they were skin tight, and her shoes popped and revealed her feet
  213. >then her ass filed out the seat, until with a panicked squeal and a loud rip, the seam snapped apart, showing off some… shockingly dainty light-blue panties
  214. >Dash watched as her arms, like her legs, thickened with brawn and grew longer
  215. >the cuffs first exposed her wrists, only stopping when they reached her elbow
  216. >she flexed her biceps, her jaw going slack as the thicker masses strained against the fabric
  217. >finally, with a grunt, her whole body pushed higher and bigger in a single, powerful spurt
  218. >her clothes were torn and sundered, clinging to her body and barely covering her shame as, at last, she stopped growing
  219. >Celestia said, in a stunned whisper, “if she wasn’t a princess before-“
  220. >”She definitely is now,” Luna finished, staring in amazement at the now 6’7, more appropriately sized and unabashedly sexy Rainbow Dash
  221. >Chrysalis growled as more evidence of her failed plan presented itself
  222. >but she grinned; she had a trump card!
  223. >”As much as I’d *hate* to put a dampener on your celebration, you’re forgetting one crucial aspect.”
  224. >all four cretins faced Chrysalis
  225. >”I have Cadance, and you don’t know where she is! She will starve without my subjects caring for her, and I’ll never tell you where she is! Never!!”
  226. >Dash frowned, then seemed in thought
  227. >her horn glowed and, in a flash, the dishevelled and teary eyed Cadance appeared, panicked, then she calmed as she recognised those around her
  228. >Chrysalis’s jaw dropped and she screeched, ”are you joking!?”
  229. >”Cadance!”
  230. >Twilight hugged her
  231. >like the others, with her powers drained, Cadance was diminished from her former 7’3 splendour to a mortal, slender 5’10
  232.  
  233. >the only difference being this one was reverted to a pegasus
  234. >the other former princesses joined in with the hug, and to add salt to the queen’s wounds, law enforcement finally arrived from Manehattan
  235. >Dash smugly watched between the reunion and down at Chrysalis, who seethed as her subjects were put in chains and loaded into a wagon
  236. >they moved to do the same to Chrysalis, but Celestia approached
  237. >”As much as I’m loath to say it, we may need her, and I want her separated from her people. Have her brought to Canterlot with us.”
  238. >”True,” Luna added, “as confident as I feel that we can get this situation fixed with our knowledge and Rainbow Dash’s powers, perhaps Chrysalis may be swayed to tell us the answers we seek in exchange for a reduced sentence. Besides, she still holds Cadance’s essence within her.”
  239. >the arrangements were made, and Chrysalis sat in quiet contemplation as she was put in magic resistant chains and carted off to Canterlot
  240. >despite everything, there was one faint hope she still held
  241. >Dash was a wildcard, and Chrysalis knew that she still housed a great deal of power within her that had yet to manifest
  242. >the moment to strike may come sooner than later
  243. >she just had to be patient…
  244. >Dash still felt a little overwhelmed, but in the presence of friends, she couldn’t deny being a princess was becoming pretty awesome
  245. >she was hungry, and the cart rolled by a deli
  246. >with a thought, and a rainbow coloured flash, a massive sandwich appeared in her hands
  247. >Twilight frowned. “Rainbow! That’s stealing!”
  248. >Dash glanced out the window and, sure enough, a distressed and confused diner was searching for their missing item
  249. >”I didn’t mean to,” Dash said and pouted
  250. >”While it is possible to create something from nothing,“ Celestia said, “much like your rescue of Cadance, most spells that being something to us involve the continuance of an entity.”
  251. >Dash blinked. “What?”
  252. >Twilight explained, “continuance meaning that if it exists, you bringing it to yourself removed it from where it was for it to still exist.”
  253. >Dash blinked again
  254. >Cadance smirked and dug into her experience as a mother. “If you had four apples in your pantry, and took one with you for lunch outside, how many apples would still be in the pantry? Just replace taking the apple yourself with teleporting it to you while you’re still outside.”
  255. >”Ooh.” Dash nodded. “Well, why didn’t say that in the first place?”
  256. >Twilight sighed. “We did, but never mind. We should plan our activities. We’re slowly recovering our weaker magic skills as unicorns, so Cadance besides, all of us can begin experimenting with the artefact. One of us should train Rainbow Dash.”
  257.  
  258. >Luna raised a hand. “I volunteer. I have the most recent experience with having to relearn my magic after my magnanimous defeat as Nightmare Moon, as well as adjusting to the physical growth I underwent in rapid form as I recovered. Plus I have long since held the practical application of combining manual activity alongside my arcane potential. I feel Rainbow Dash would benefit most from my tutorage.”
  259. >Celestia folded her arms. “Well, I have been teaching children magic since I took the throne. I understand the fundamentals like nobody else, and have the most experience.”
  260. >Twilight put a gentle hand on Dash’s shoulder. “I’m the closest to you. I know you the best, and I’m more than happy to teach you. I’m sorry for snapping about the sandwich, but being a princess is a big responsibility. You helped me learn aspects of that alongside me, so I think I can offer you the best support in return.”
  261. >Cadance shrugged. “I can help too. We share a common bond in both being pegasi who’ve had to learn a whole new skill in magic. And goodness knows teaching my daughter, Flurry Heart, and being a babysitter to Twilight before that, I understand the basic touches to those unfamiliar with spells that don’t require books, even if I can’t cast anything at all any more...”
  262. >Dash looked between the four, and scratched her head
  263.  
  264. >”Look, no offence or anything,” Dash said, “but nobody knows me like Twilight. Although I’m not sure the whole ‘study the ground while we fly’ thing will work this time, what with… y’know, your lack of wings.”
  265. >Twilight grumbled as she glanced behind shoulders, but nodded. “That and Canterlot’s far busier than Ponyville. Trying to get a straight run of flash-card style learning points about a topic as broad as magic will be all but impossible.”
  266. >”Very well,” Celestia said. “We will focus our efforts on the artefact, and if we learn anything, we’ll let you know.”
  267. >Chrysalis was secured in a cell, deep within the confines of Canterlot
  268. >not that she was compliant, but when she was 8ft of regal perfection, she supposed she was flattered that they manhandled her with ten burly soldiers to make sure she didn’t try anything as they shackled her to the wall and locked the door
  269. >with a degree of deviousness that actually even surprised Chrysalis, they had also slotted slivers of magic resistant metal into her horn and put a clamp around it as well
  270. >just the fragments alone would prevent her horn healing, but the anti-magic could well prevent anyone else casting magic on her, so she couldn’t even trick anyone into releasing her
  271. >it was fine, Chrysalis was exactly where she needed to be
  272. >near that braggartish Rainbow Dash would no doubt stay as they sought to understand the Seed of Sorcery
  273. >a non-magical pegasus, filled with the the power of three alicorns?
  274. >*something* had to give
  275. >and it would be catastrophic
  276. >”Alright, coach! Lay it on me!”
  277. >Dash shadow-boxed the air as she got used to her new outfit, a casual one from Luna’s selection, and strutted her new body in the corner of the palace gardens
  278. >Twilight adjusted her own simple dress, something she had left behind back before she’d moved to Ponyville, and cleared her throat
  279. >”Learning how to control invoking your horn should be our first step.”
  280. >”Invoking my horn. Right!” Dash swung a mighty roundhouse with her long, powerful legs, then turns to Twilight. “What’s that mean?”
  281. >Twilight hovered a book in front of Dash, which she took
  282. >it was titled, ‘Introductions of Invocations: Junior Edition.’
  283. >”While you’ve proven you can use magic, understanding the difference between wishing to do something with your magic and *actually* doing it is crucial.”
  284. >”Just give me the bullet points,” Dash said and shrugged. “I’m sure I’ll pick it up easily.”
  285. >Twilight put her hands on her hips. “I wish you’d take this seriously.”
  286. >”I am, but this looks about as interesting as watching grass grow.”
  287. >her horn suddenly flashed to life and the plants around her suddenly grew wild and untamed
  288. >”Oops…”
  289.  
  290. >”See? You’re currently affecting the world with your desires and imagination. Invoking your horn is like… flexing a bicep.” Twilight did so, and couldn’t help but pout at her thin arm after getting used to a nice, firm swell as a princess
  291. >she sighed and continued, “yes, you can curl your arm, but to actually flex requires an extra step. Casting magic *is* that step. Right now, you’re not able to separate the two.”
  292. >”Okay, so how do I stop it?”
  293. >Twilight smirked. “You’re a hands on girl, so we should focus on something engaging, but natural. The more confined and worried you are, the more likely you’ll be to overthink what’s going on and accidentally invoke your magic. How about some good, old fashioned exercise?”
  294. >Dash perked up. ”Ooh, yeah! I don’t even know how strong I am yet!”
  295. >Twilight chirped, ”to the-“
  296. >in a rainbow flash, they were suddenly outside a gym they had passed earlier
  297. >”… gym,” she finished, then gave Dash a look
  298. >”What? C’mon, let’s get a sweat on!”
  299. >the door creaked open, and Celestia entered with a couple of guards
  300. >Chrysalis smirked. “Given up already? Are you so reliant on your magic that mustering even a sliver of intellect in learning how to use the Seed is beyond you?”
  301. >the princess folded her arms and glowered at her. ”I could ask the same. I always thought you were clever. Devious, even. Apparently I’ve misjudged you.”
  302. >”Oh?”
  303. >”You’re either insane, idiotic, or desperate. Do you have *any* idea how dangerous the Seed of Supplanted Sorcery is? It can tear the soul out of someone! Even the user. *Especially* the user!”
  304. >Chrysalis stared daggers at her old foe. “Perhaps you should have thought of that before you and your insufferable friends robbed me of my people. Left us barely able to support and defend ourselves.”
  305. >”It was going to happen eventually. Your people require love to feed, and we live in a nation of peace and prosperity, where such things are freely given. As soon as they began to meet the citizens of Equestria, they would have begun to leave. Perhaps if you hadn’t ruled them like a tyrant-“
  306. >Chrysalis pulled against her shackles and screamed, ”they were *my* people to rule for the benefit of the hive! You don’t get to impose *your* rule over my domain, over my *children*, you self-righteous worm!”
  307. >the once steadfast Celestia stepped back from Chrysalis’ size and fury, and even her escort were also taken aback, before stepping in front of their princess to protect her
  308. >Chrysalis sat back down and smouldered. “Get lost. Until you’re willing to barter, i shall give you nothing.”
  309. >Celestia raised an eyebrow. ”Barter? What do you mean?”
  310.  
  311. >”That dragon pet of Twilight and that traitor, Thorax, deprived me of my people, but as their collective ruler, I lay the blame at your feet. And now you deprive my people of me. Our numbers are few, sources of food fewer, and our predators many. How much changeling blood must flow before you realise you have put my people in an impossible, untenable position?”
  312. >Celestia frowned, then patted one of her escorts on the shoulder. “Let’s go.”
  313. >as the door swung shut, Chrysalis couldn’t help but grin
  314. >“More!”
  315. >Twilight panted as she levitated more weights onto the rack and locked it in place
  316. >Dash licked her lips and lifted
  317. >the frame groaned, the bar bent
  318. >but Dash finally found a comfortable level of resistance
  319. >she invoked her magic, using telekinesis to reinforce the bar with a rainbow glow
  320. >but the weight was all on her arms
  321. >ten reps came and went, and Dash took a drink of water as she took a breather
  322. >everyone was staring
  323. >of course they were
  324. >not every day someone as *awesome* as *The* Princess Rainbow Dash graced their gym
  325. >the adoration of the other members made Dash feel…
  326. >tingly
  327. >but the real reward was how right Twilight was about how to learn magic
  328. >with every exercise, from stretching to some cardio to strength training, she added a lesson in magic
  329. >hitting the treadmill?
  330. >Dash learned how to use telekinesis to change the settings, bring the water bottle over for a drink and wipe her brow with a towel
  331. >these were quick applications
  332. >and she learned how to maintain the spell through the legwork, hovering an item while strengthening her calves, thighs and glutes
  333. >now she was mastering deeper application, like shape maintenance
  334. >Dash tucked under the bar again
  335. >twenty reps this time
  336. >”Take it easy, Rainbow, don’t strain yourself.”
  337. >”Relax. I know what I’m doing.”
  338. >”I know, but alicorns have a magical reinforcement to their bodies and we still don’t know how deep that runs through you. If it fails for any reason, since you’re not exactly a naturally made alicorn you-“
  339. >Dash rolled her eyes and said, “it’s fine! Chill out.”
  340. >and her horn sparked to life
  341. >Twilight yelped and shivered as a flurry of snow suddenly swirled around her from an angry cloud over her head
  342. >”Dang it,” Dash said and, with a casual wave of her hand, dispelled the little cloud. “Sorry, but like I said, I’m not straining. It’s a good level of resistance.”
  343. >Twilight shook off the snow, and replied, “it’s still 2,500lbs!”
  344. >”Heh, impressed?” Dash said as she flexed her powerful arms
  345. >”Ye-“ Twilight cut herself off, blushed a little, then angrily continued, “that’s not the point, and you know it.”
  346. >Dash stood and stretched to begin her wind down, and casually levitated her water bottle to the drinking fountain, refilled it, and brought it to her mouth for a sip
  347. >”One spell mastered and awesomeified! What’s next?”
  348. >Twilight replied, “teleportation is an advanced spell, but you seem to have an aptitude for both yourself and objects.”
  349. >”You mean like this?”
  350. >Dash raised a hand, and her horn flashed
  351. >Twilight yelped as she sent from standing near her friend to… her butt resting in Dash’s palm and perfectly balanced
  352. >except she panicked and toppled, crashing to the floor
  353. >”Ow…”
  354. >”Whoops! Here, lemme help you up.”
  355. >”No, wai-“
  356. >with another flash, Twilight appeared so close she could touch the ceiling
  357. >she screamed as she fell
  358. >only to be caught in Dash’s strong arms, her bigger wings flapping smoothly
  359. >”Gotcha! See? Already got a handle on it!”
  360. >”All the same, let’s go somewhere and make sure you’ve got it all pinned down… and let’s *fly* there.”
  361.  
  362. >Twilight held onto Dash’s shoulders for dear life
  363. >Dash wasn’t just classically fast
  364. >she wasn’t even faster by virtue of her enhanced strength, or her larger wings
  365. >it turns out alicornism enhancements to an already ultra-fast pegasus made sonic rainbooms the ‘warming up’ speed
  366. >try as she might, Twilight screamed as her grip gave way
  367. >before she could even begin falling, Dash zipped around, grabbed her and hugged her tightly against her chest before crushing another sound barrier
  368. >Dash yelled, ”this is awesome!”
  369. >”Thank goodness! I know you want to test your new limits, Rainbow, but-“
  370. >”I’m barely trying! Check *this* out!”
  371. >Dash dived and spun as she flapped her wings as hard as she could
  372. >her horn glowed and a shining field of telekinesis shrouded them to break up the wind resistance
  373. >they went faster and faster until the world was just streaks of colour
  374. >Twilight closed her eyes
  375. >only moments later, Dash stopped before a mountain
  376. >Twilight opened her eyes just in time to witness a shockwave from Dash’s landing flow up the slope, tearing grass, bushes and even slabs of rock as it dissipated, and causing a small rockslide
  377. >Dash hovered and let the ground settle
  378. >”Dash, where are we?”
  379. >”I think it’s called Mt. Eastplume. Gilda told me about it once.”
  380. >Twilight gawped. “Eastplume? Th- that’s six thousand miles away! We were flying for a couple of minutes, tops!”
  381. >”Yeah, I know, I could do it faster, but I’m still getting used to this new bod!” Dash gave her wings a majestic flutter, then folded them. “Anyway, we learning teleportation or what?”
  382. >she brought them back down to earth, and Twilight caught her breath
  383. >”Okay… I suppose as a person well versed in moving quickly between locations, you know about estimating special awareness based on a predictive flight-path and adapting based on extraneous circumstances.”
  384. >Dash folded her arms. “Uh…”
  385. >Twilight simplified, “imagining yourself in the place you’re flying towards before you get there and making quick adjustments as you see more details.”
  386. >”Oh! Right. Sure.”
  387. >”And we’ve already established this since you’ve been able to cause teleportation based on what you’ve wanted to do.”
  388. >”Damn straight! Check it!”
  389. >she blinked two feet to the side
  390. >”I’m moving-“
  391. >she blinked beside Twilight
  392. >”-place to place-“
  393. >then in the sky
  394. >”-in zero-“
  395. >she appeared on a ridge thirty feet away
  396. >”-seconds flat!”
  397. >she appeared in front of Twilight again
  398. >”You’re technically moving outside of the realms of physics,” Twilight said. “Faster than the speed of light, even once the spell is in effect.”
  399. >”So you’re saying I’m faster than fast!? Heck yes!”
  400.  
  401. >Twilight nodded. “I think it’s safe to say you’ve got teleportation down. We should try something more abstract. Currently you’ve been able to teleport to locations in sight and in recent memory. I’m going to give you a location, and you have to teleport us both there.”
  402. >Dash pumped her fist. ”Try me!”
  403. >Twilight hooked an arm around Dash’s waist
  404. >”Crystal Empire throne room!”
  405. >Dash focused, her horn glowed the full colour spectrum
  406. >and, in a flash, they were there
  407. >the guards were spooked and pointed their spears before realising who it was
  408. >most of all a distraught Shining Armor gasped and ran up to them
  409. >Twily! I’ve only just heard you’d rescued Cadance! Is everything okay?”
  410. >Twilight gave him a comforting hug. “We’re still trying to get everything fixed, but Cadance is just fine. She’s helping research how to get all of our powers back.”
  411. >Shining looked over to the current and only princess of Equestria. ”And… wow, Rainbow Dash? You do something to your hair?”
  412. >Dash grinned as she realised she was taller than the big, brawny Shining Armor by a couple of inches
  413. >”What’s shaking, tiny?”
  414. >Dash’s smugness faded
  415. >a hot sensation ran through her, and Shining looked between Dash and back to Twilight
  416. >”Uh… is she okay?”
  417. >Twilight broke the hug and looked
  418. >Dash gasped as her clothes drew tight against her body
  419. >”Not again…”
  420. >they all watched as her head rose higher
  421. >her already impressive bustline swelled out and tore holes in her borrowed top
  422. >Dash watched her bicep as it swelled even larger and shredded the sleeve of her top
  423. >the guards all got an eyeful as her ass burst through her pants, and the her hips finished the job
  424. >her muscular torso strained her top to the fullest, yet her growth only accelerated
  425. >Dash had to cover herself as every scrap of clothing fell away, yet she continued to grow
  426. >her rainbow hair flowed and fluttered, floating as if she was underwater, the colours blending and swirling into a beautiful, ethereal form
  427. >her magenta eyes flashed white and slivers of pink, blue and red streaked through her irises
  428. >and her horn extended and curved subtly upward, a brilliant and vibrant corona of multicoloured light so strong that everyone had to cover their eyes until, at last, it eased
  429. >and everyone stared in silence as Rainbow Dash had stopped growing
  430. >she was taller than Celestia’s imposing 10ft height…
  431. >looming 12ft tall, in a perfect blend of full figured curves and raw, unparalleled strength, Dash unfurled her wings
  432. >the sky blue feathers had also adopted subtle rainbow hues along the barbs that shimmered in the light
  433. >and while already larger, her wings stretched beyond, reaching wall to wall, with phantasmal secondary wings of pure energy
  434.  
  435. >Dash smiled and no longer cared she was naked, and instead flexed her arms
  436. >the air was dense with power, so much that Twilight and Shining’s horns fizzled, and she fell to her knees
  437. >”Oh no…”
  438. >”Hell yes!”
  439. >“Oh, this is precious.”
  440. >Luna entered the cell and ignored the smug, sharp toothed grin of the prisoner
  441. >Chrysalis stood, looming over the 5’7 unicorn
  442. >”Still no progress, I assume?” Chrysalis snickered and tried to find her arms despite the chains. “It’s almost as if you have no way of knowing how to use the Seed.”
  443. >”You can dispense with your mockery,” Luna said. “I simply wished to ask a few questions.”
  444. >”No attempt to bargain?” Chrysalis huffed and sat back down. “Then I’m not sure we have much to discuss.”
  445. >”You mentioned to my sister of your concerns surrounding your people.”
  446. >Chrysalis rolled her eyes. “Oh, is this the part where you play for sympathy or prey on my perceived fears? Or appeal to my sense of decency concerning the protection of my people?”
  447. >Luna’s brow furrowed. “I was hoping to build a better picture of your desires. You ask for barter and bargain, and yet your intentions are unknown to us beside your constant desires to conquer and feed in the name of the changelings. If you are expecting us to surrender lands or return the people that have sided with Thorax, then we will refuse.”
  448. >”Not much for sharing, are you? I suppose that’s understandable, if pathetic.”
  449. >Luna’s furrowed brow deepened. “What do you mean?”
  450. >Chrysalis put on a forced, doting and condescending tone. “Aww, I’m surprised! I would have thought the *lesser* sister would be all too familiar with the sting of dealing with someone’s unwilling to share their glory for the good of all, or to allow others to flourish rather than bathe evermore in the much adored *sun*.”
  451. >Luna dropped deeper into a full scowl. “You shall not turn me against my sister. It is foolish to believe you can.”
  452. >”A shame. The *old* you would have been a ruler with which I could be willing to form an alliance! A pragmatist. Someone able to act decisively and know they understood better the rigours of leading and that their subjects don’t know what’s best for them.”
  453. >”That’s not true! I am not Nightmare Moon! I was corru-“
  454.  
  455. >”Corrupted? A cowards excuse! You know as well as I that all that happened to you was your truest desires were unrestrained! Or are you saying you aren’t chafing under the more beloved and experienced leader in Celestia? Or even the ruler of her own domain of the Crystal Empire and mother in Cadance? Or even the magnitude of importance that surrounds Twilight Sparkle? What exactly is your position, precious Luna?”
  456. >Luna couldn’t meet Chrysalis’ gaze, who stood again and got as close as she could to her
  457. >”And without your powers over dreams, who even *are* you?”
  458. >Luna wordlessly left, and Chrysalis smirked as she returned to her bench, and relaxed with a broad smile
  459.  
  460. >”C’mon, Twilight. A body like this doesn’t need clothing!”
  461. >Dash lounged against the wall of Shining’s bedroom
  462. >Twilight was having a nervous breakdown at the fact that Dash was taller than her while she was sitting
  463. >and had a build that would make Bulk Biceps jealous
  464. >or the fact she kept feeling herself, especially her immense bust
  465. >Twilight grumbled and said, “so what, suddenly you’re too good for modesty?”
  466. >”Yep! I’m a goddess.”
  467. >Twilight thought for a moment, then smirked. “Oh, I guess you’re too good for Rarity too? I guess her whole life’s work in making clothing is a waste of time?”
  468. >Dash gave Twilight a glare for the obvious attack but she looked sheepish at the embedded meaning
  469. >”Hey, I never said that.”
  470. >”No, just implied it by claiming you’re better than everyone else. You’re incredibly powerful, this much is true, but you realise this is supposed to be a temporary arrangement.”
  471. >Dash continued to look ashamed, but finally relented. “Fine, I’ll wear the stupid clothes. Seriously, how do you *not* just wanna flex your stuff with all this power?”
  472. >Twilight did her best to emulate Rarity’s precise magical sewing, but said nothing for the moment
  473. >Dash stood up and levitated several mirrors around her body
  474. >”Damn I look good, though. I never thought I’d carry this much muscle and still look sexy!”
  475. >”A princess’ body adapts to their self-image, crossed with their natural physique before receiving their powers, then slowly growing for years once they do. Luna had always apparently been invested in martial arts while Celestia mostly focused on her caring and nurturing traits as a leader before their ascension. To that end, Luna always retained her toned form while Celestia had fuller curves but they became amplified.”
  476. >”Yeah, but I know I was buff before, but this is *way* more than I thought I’d ever see on a girl and still work. And I’ve never really wanted huge tits, but look at these puppies! And these wings? They’re super cool, but I’ve never seen anything like’em.”
  477. >Dash held up her far less aerodynamic bust, and looked over at Twilight
  478. >her friend was blushing and trying to focus on her sewing as she cleared her throat
  479. >”I don’t mean to sound… well, mean, but you’ve always had an understandable ego, and you’re holding a tremendous amount of power. The two are probably egging each other on and even speeding the process up, and you’re influencing your changes with your personality, hence the wings.”
  480. >”Y’think I’ll grow more?” Dash slapped her own ass and grinned. “I kinda hope so…”
  481. >”Probably. I’m theorising you’re, for lack of a better word, ‘metabolising’ the energy of the princesses. The first growth spurt was probably my lesser amount since I’m still… *was* still developing. This larger spurt was probably either Luna or Celestia’s portion and soon you’ll absorb the other.”
  482.  
  483. >Dash chuckled. “I can’t wait! I’m gonna a magnitude more awesome than anything or anyone around!”
  484. >”I bet,” Twilight sighed. “Here, your ladyship. I hope my mortal efforts are good enough for you.”
  485. >”Cut it out already,” Dash said as she levitated the toga and sarong over to herself and put them on. “I’m just having fun with this. Just because you’re jealous-“
  486. >Twilight snapped, ”I am *not* jealous! I’m just scared that you’re going to go too far with all this! Goodness knows you’ve let glory go to your head before and it’s clouded your judgement!”
  487. >Dash huffed. “You know what? I don’t have to deal with this.” Her horn glowed
  488. >”Wait, stop! I didn’t-“
  489. >Dash teleported Twilight back to Canterlot
  490. >she then teleported herself outside and looked to the skies as everyone marvelled at the sheer size and power of her body
  491. >it would have been a great time to show off, but she was too annoyed
  492. >she needed a flight
  493. >so she ducked, and leapt
  494. >Dash’s legs cratered the road
  495. >and then she flapped her wings
  496. >a gale force blast levelled the buildings underneath her, but she didn’t even pay it any mind
  497. >she needed to blow off some steam
  498. >Dash flew as hard and fast as she could
  499. >again, to reduce air drag, she formed a cone of telekinesis in front of her
  500. >her physical wings couldn’t get any real purchase thanks to the barrier
  501. >but her magical wings were doing the heavy lifting
  502. >land masses blurred beneath her as she hit speeds she didn’t even know were possible
  503. >and all Dash could think of was how fast she could become when she adsorbed *all* the power inside her
  504. >she couldn’t wait
  505. >”You can mask your desperation behind that calm facade all you like, Cadance, but you’re fooling nobody. Just tell me, has your friend has exploded from the amount of power within her or is fast becoming a tyrant? She always seemed to have a good attitude for becoming an irredeemable monster.”
  506. >the princess of the Crystal Empire shrugged as she approached the queen of the changelings
  507. >”I’m not going to play games, Chrysalis,” Cadance said. “Your people will starve and be hunted down by larger beasts without you to protect them.”
  508. >”I’ll breed more,” Chrysalis said. “And with your power within me, they’ll be a stronger brood than before. I’m still waiting for an answer; is Rainbow Dash a monster or a smoking crater?”
  509. >”You’ll never get the chance to breed more unless you work with us, I-“
  510. >Chrysalis cut her off with a harsh laugh
  511.  
  512. >”Work with you? So Rainbow Dash isn’t dead yet, otherwise you wouldn’t be flirting with the issue. Just this feeble attempt to suggest I care about any given drone. That’s why you’re weak, Cadance. You have but one strong, virile mate, and the capacity to lure any male to your den to breed. You could be generating and creating an unstoppable bloodline, yet you dote on that pathetic Flurry Heart rather than letting nature take its course. If your offspring are strong, they will surv-“
  513. >Cadance punched Chrysalis square in the eye with enough force to tear the skin
  514. >”Don’t you talk about my daughter, you freak!”
  515. >a trickle of dark blood leaked from the blow, and the queen’s long tongue extended and dragged against the scratch
  516. >”If only you’d show that sort of backbone in using your powers and raising your family, we wouldn’t be here. Weakness breeds weakness.”
  517. >Cadance covered her face in shame as she realised what she had done, and stormed out
  518. >Dash had circumnavigated the globe a few times, but grew bored
  519. >so she went in to land in Canterlot
  520. >dramatically, of course
  521. >she landed outside the city by some distance
  522. >but she landed with such speed and force that caused the great outer wall of the city to crack
  523. >closely followed by a sonic boom that finished the job, toppling a large section
  524. >Dash winced. “Oh, crud.”
  525. >as guards mounted a rescue mission, Dash called out, “I got it! Leave it to Princess Dash!”
  526. >she lifted the wall pieces with her magic
  527. >except she hadn’t waited for some of the rescuers to climb off
  528. >they screamed as they tried to hold on to the loose rocks
  529. >but a few fell, only for Dash to widen the telekinetic field and snare them
  530. >”Gotcha!”
  531. >but her divided focus meant some of the wall fragments fell on the nearest buildings or crashed down near the people on the ground
  532. >”Damn it! Hold on!”
  533. >Dash flew in and took hold of the largest piece of wall, so she could use her magic to hold the outer areas with smaller chunks and the majority of the people
  534. >but it wasn’t designed to be held up by a single point, as cracked in two
  535. >Dash juggled the various pieces, but in desperation just teleported everyone away from the area and to somewhere familiar; Ponyville
  536. >the focus it took led to the broken wall to smash on the ground and cause even more destruction
  537. >”Damn it!”
  538. >Dash let herself drop
  539. >only her impact caused yet more carnage
  540. >so Dash growled and stomped up to Canterlot castle on foot, with everyone giving her a fearful and wide berth
  541. >elsewhere, Chrysalis felt the vibrations of what had to be ensuing destruction
  542. >and laughed
  543.  
  544. >Dash was used to being the centre of attention
  545. >but not like this
  546. >people should be admiring her
  547. >she should be their hero
  548. >hell, she was a princess, right?
  549. >they should be worshipping her!
  550. >but the fear she could see
  551. >the fear she could *hear*
  552. >”Leave us alone!”
  553. >”Don’t hurt us!”
  554. >Dash frowned and looked at the cowering people
  555. >”Relax, I ain’t gonna hurt anyone. I’m just heading for the palace.”
  556. >the crowd gasped and talked amongst themselves
  557. >only for a voice to pierce the rabble
  558. >”Leave our princess alone!”
  559. >Dash saw a young girl
  560. >a full on tomboy at that; short hair, scuffed knees, a devil-may-care gleam in her eye
  561. >she stood, arms spread wide, between Dash and the quickest route to the palace
  562. >she reminded Dash of Scootaloo…
  563. >a couple more people joined her, standing in Dash’s way
  564. >it was pointless, Dash could step over them, flown to the palace, pick another road
  565. >but her powerful shoulders slumped
  566. >Princess Dash was the bad guy…
  567. >they were trying to protect the *real* princesses
  568. >this wasn’t her
  569. >the hell was she doing?
  570. >*The* Rainbow Dash was meant to be a hero
  571. >sure, sometimes she went too far
  572. >and she was known for her brutal honesty and ability to put her foot in her mouth
  573. >but she did the right thing
  574. >she fought damn hard for her place as a Wonderbolt
  575. >that was *all* Dash, fought with effort, and honed skill
  576. >and a lot of help from her friends
  577. >not some stupid powers
  578. >Dash closed her eyes and teleported to the palace gates
  579. >and saw her
  580. >Twilight, preparing to head out into the city with a small band of guards talking about an ‘attack on the city outskirts’
  581. >Twilight didn’t have her full magic, yet there she was, ready to throw down
  582. >then Dash and Twilight’s eyes met, and the less than certain Princess Dash braced herself
  583. >for all the power she wielded, for as big as she has grown
  584. >Twilight’s judgemental gaze still frightened her
  585. >as Dash entered the courtyard, Twilight took a deep breath, but Dash cut her off
  586. >”I get it, I screwed up, I know! I don’t know my own strength, I’m a literal giant asshole, and I’m sorry.”
  587. >Twilight’s stern gaze softened and she approached and put a hand against Dash’s leg
  588. >”I’m sorry too… I *am* jealous of you, learning spells that took me years to master as easily as you have. I know you have a lot of power, but that’s some serious aptitude you’ve shown all the same. That’s all you, not any raw alicorn might that our magic has given you.”
  589. >Dash and Twilight smiled at one another, then Dash crouched down and hugged her friend
  590. >”You’re still my egghead, Twi.”
  591. >”And you’re still my brash, hard-headed but loyal and very dear friend, Rainbow.”
  592.  
  593. >they spent a long moment, before Twilight stepped back
  594. >”I haven’t had a chance to ask about how the research has been going before I heard about your… dramatic entrance.”
  595. >Dash stood and cocked an eyebrow. “Really? I know we were away for a while, but I figured the others would have *something* by now.“
  596. >”There you are! Finally!”
  597. >Cadance stormed out, holding the Seed of Supplanted Sorcery
  598. >she looked absolutely *pissed*
  599. >”About damn time! Here, take this stupid thing before I jam it up that bug bitches ass!”
  600. >Dash and Twilight have each other a glance before Cadance practically punched Twilight in the gut with the Seed
  601. >Dash stepped up (and over) Cadance and growled down at her
  602. >”Hey! What the hell’s your problem!?”
  603. >Cadance snarled up at Dash for a moment, then suddenly clutched her head and stumbled
  604. >Twilight caught her. “This isn’t like you at all.”
  605. >”I- I don’t feel myself… Celestia and Luna have been acting strange too.”
  606. >”I haven’t had a chance to talk to them yet,” Twilight said. “What’s been happening?”
  607. >Cadance winced, then growled again. “You’re meant to be smart, so figure it out your damn self!”
  608. >she caught herself , and said, “we’ve haven’t been able to get much work done. We tried to figure out how to use the Seed, but nothing we tried worked. Each of us went to try and talk to Queen Chrysalis and reacted poorly to her words. Luna’s become depressed and doubtful of herself, Celestia’s become uncaring and apathetic and I… I…”
  609. >Cadance once again grew infuriated and roared, “I’m gonna burn that insect bitch at the stake!”
  610. >Dash said, ”okay, Cadance, sorry but you need a timeout.”
  611. >”Don’t tell me what to do, you giant bimbo!”
  612. >Dash rolled her eyes as her horn glowed and-
  613. >Twilight panicked. “Wait, don’t hurt her- oh…”
  614. >she watched as Dash teleported a comfy, plush cloud bed nearby, then put Cadance on top of it, and finally put her into a deep sleep before sending her drifting up into the sky
  615.  
  616. >”Don’t worry, she’s a pegasus, so she’ll be fine,” Dash said with a smirk. “Cadence obviously wasn’t having a good time so I‘ve given her an afternoon nimbus-nap. That helps *me* when I’m feeling cranky.”
  617. >Twilight beamed a smile. ”Assertive, decisive, but caring and gentle! As a princess should be.”
  618. >”I’ve learned from the best,” Dash said as she winked at Twilight
  619. >”Now we’ve got to figure out what’s going on… I trust Celestia wouldn’t have just given up on researching the Seed without exhausting every avenue. I theorise that means the artefact is closely tied to Chrysalis in some way.”
  620. >”What’s the play, coach? You need it, Princess Dash’ll do it!”
  621. >Twilight stood proud and said, “we have an imperative need to-”
  622. >”go on a grand adventure of daring-do like Daring Do?” Dash hopped from foot to foot. “A giant ‘fix the problem’ spell involving catastrophic levels of magic?” She took wing and twirled as she pumped her fists “An epic laser battle in the skies backed with even more epic rocking tunes under the light of the full moon!?”
  623. >”Even better than all that! We need…” Twilight clapped her hands excitedly ”…to go to the library!”
  624. >Dash slammed ass-first into the ground with a huff (and a cracking of the courtyard)
  625. >”Pfft. Boring nerd stuff.”
  626. >”Being a princess sometimes involves-“
  627. >”Yeah, yeah,” Dash folded her arms and grumbled, “sitting down and analysing the problem.”
  628. >the pair entered the palace together
  629. >though Dash couldn’t help but give Twilight a light hip-check, sending her tumbling to the floor
  630. >”Hey!”
  631. >Twilight telekinetically pulled a large crease in the palace entrance’s carpet in front of Dash as she smirked over her shoulder
  632. >and she tripped, landing so hard it shook the ground and knocked a few paintings off the wall
  633. >they looked at each other and smirked, then continued on, side by side as they shared a laugh
  634. >Chrysalis kept peering out of the window
  635. >plenty of expected carnage, but it suddenly stopped
  636. >she frowned and paced as much as she could
  637. >”My Queen,”
  638. >a voice outside the bars
  639. >one of the guards shifted briefly into his changeling form as he entered
  640. >”It was just as you predicted. The Rainbow one caused enough of a panic that a few of us managed to infiltrate-“
  641. >”I know my own plan, fool! Hurry up!”
  642. >the ‘guard’ undid the horn clasp and used some tweezers to remove the slivers of metal from her horn, then loosely replaced the clamp
  643. >Chrysalis ordered, ”now go and await the counterattack.”
  644. >she was left alone once more, and sighed with relief as her horn began to rapidly heal
  645. >only for another visitor to arrive
  646. >”We need to talk,” Twilight said
  647.  
  648. >Dash sighed as she watched Luna and Celestia
  649. >the princess of the night sat on her throne, performing her very best ‘slightly-criticised Rarity’ impression; sobbing, wailing and cramming ice cream down her mouth between breaths, surrounded by about twelve empty tubs
  650. >Celestia kept rolling her eyes at her sisters inflated and noisy despair. “Could you shut up? Or whatever. I don’t care.”
  651. >”I am truly pointless! It is all as fruitless as a fruit-free fruit salad!”
  652. >”That wouldn’t even be anything,” Celestia snipped
  653. >Luna bawled harder. “Wahhh, I cannot even metaphor right! Woe is me-he-he…” Luna tossed another tub away and levitated another one in from… somewhere
  654. >Dash ran a hand down her face as she looked over the Seed before slipping it between her immense cleavage
  655. >she then mumbled, “c’mon, Twilight, hurry up.”
  656. >”Ugh, what’s the hurry?” Celestia muttered. “It’s not going to matter anyway.”
  657. >”Y’know what?” Dash said and stormed up to the sisters, “I don’t care what kind of magical bull you’re suffering. While I’m princess, I’m gonna motivate the crap outta you!”
  658. >”Sure, whatever you say,” Celestia said. “Not like I care.”
  659. >”Oh, you’ll care alright!” Dash said and picked Celestia out of her throne. “Twilight’s one of my best friends, and I know more than anyone how much you inspired her to give everything she’s got in everything she does. Well now it’s your turn! And those ‘average at best’ boobs aren’t gonna be an excuse.”
  660. >Celestia sighed, “do I have to?”
  661. >”Yes! And as for you!”
  662. >Dash kept Celestia aloft with her magic and then picked up Luna
  663. >”Nothing fights off a downer like adrenaline and post-exercise endorphins! We’re gonna go warm up with a stiff jog, then we’re gonna lift! I’m gonna motivate the heck out of your tiny ass!”
  664. >”But I am worthless! Nothingness possesses more value than I!”
  665. >”And after I’ve worked that tiny ass through some hardcore exercise, you’ll make worth seem worthless! I will chisel you into a lean, mean butt-kicking machine!”
  666. >Dash double teleported Celestia and Luna’s loose clothes out and replaced them with some form fitting exercise gear
  667. >”One sprint around the palace grounds, through town and to the gym! Now march!”
  668. >”But I don’t want to-“
  669. >Dash evoked the royal Canterlot voice and bellowed, “I said MARCH!”
  670. >the two de-princessed princesses ran in a panic, followed by the stomps of the *very* Princess Dash
  671.  
  672. >”I was beginning to wonder when you would show yourself, my little nemesis,” Chysalis said. “Have you come to appeal to my better nature? Or perhaps regale me with a lesson in friendship? Oh. Or maybe you’re here to turn me loose in a shocking display of mercy?”
  673. >Twilight shrugged. ”Nope. Just here to ask you what your plan is.”
  674. >”To safeguard the changelings.”
  675. >Twilight huffed. ”Provably false.”
  676. >Chrysalis cocked an eyebrow, and then noticed the guard behind her old for give her a quick transformative flash of his hand,
  677. >”You’re going to let them die off while you play these games,” Twilight continued. “Sure, I have no doubt you can breed more, and I’m sure they will benefit with your enhanced powers, but exactly what do you think you’ll do here, trapped in a dungeon, and under watch? It doesn’t matter what you do to the princesses, the guards alone will repel you.”
  678. >Twilight got closer
  679. >”In fact, how do you intend to fight Rainbow Dash? She’s practically a force of nature at this point. Capable of tremendous destruction with a casual thought. Do you really believe you can win this? Even if you escape, do you think defeating us will somehow stop Dash from potentially obliterating the changelings out of grief and anger?”
  680. >Chrysalis stared daggers at the bookish girl. ”For all your vaunted knowledge, Twilight Sparkle, you know nothing.”
  681. >Twilight winced and held her head, then blinked as her expression turned vague and vapid. “Huh? What are we even talking about?”
  682. >Chrysalis chuckled, though studied Twilight as she gazed around in a dreamlike state.
  683. >“That was faster than normal… oh well.”
  684. >Chrysalis removed the clamp from her horn, and with a green glow, her shackles vanished
  685. >Twilight whined, “hey, like, shouldn’t you not be doing that or something?”
  686. >”Oh, it’ll be alright,” Chrysalis said with a sneer, “revel in your ignorance. I look forward to nourishing myself on your wits. And then, when I drain your moronic friend Rainbow Dash dry of her power, I shall peel your skin and wear you as my robe as I take over all of Equestria!”
  687. >Chrysalis patted Twilight on the head, each one becoming harsher and harder
  688. >”Now, save me some time; where is the Seed, my dim-witted pet?”
  689. >Twilight hopped from foot to foot and looked excited. ”Like, oh, I know! It’s up some stairs!”
  690. >”… yes, and?”
  691. >”It’s in a *big* room! With lots of windows!”
  692. >Chrysalis growled, and slapped Twilight to the floor
  693. >”Damn it! Definitely a faster change than normal. I’ll get it myself!”
  694. >Chrysalis left the chamber with her guard, but not before locking the gate behind her, and transforming into a duplicate of Twilight
  695.  
  696. >”Work it! Feel the burn!”
  697. >Celestia and Luna were bathed in sweat
  698. >Celestia’s apathy was at odds with the fear of a twelve foot titaness driving her like a dog
  699. >and while Luna fared better, being fitter than her sister, but having suffered a sugar crash from her ice cream binge, she was struggling just as hard
  700. >but Dash wasn’t relenting
  701. >nor was she holding back herself
  702. >it may have been her second workout that day, but she had *all* the stamina
  703. >after five sets of ten reps of every heaviest dumbbell she could fit on a whole rack, then used poles to place two of those racks together
  704. >and she split her magic, half on reinforcing the frame and the other half of her power adding even more weight
  705. >she didn’t know how much weight it was, but even she was starting to struggle by the end
  706. >and slowly placing the weights down, the floor cracked, and the neighbouring buildings complained about a continuous moderate tremor during her exercise
  707. >Dash was easily stronger than even the biggest dragons at this point
  708. >but she was beginning to feel *it*
  709. >the power inside her was building and ready to finish her absorption of three princesses essence
  710. >but she wasn’t sure if she wanted it any more
  711. >she was happy like this
  712. >Dash had power, but she had limits
  713. >and limits were the fun part, it gave her something to strive against
  714. >being awesome was because of achieving the impossible, not just by being so powerful it was trivial
  715. >which suited Dash just fine…
  716. >she checked the clock
  717. >Twilight should have done what she needed to by now
  718. >Dash stood and cleaned herself with her magic, and turned to the struggling princesses
  719. >”Keep it up, weaklings! If I come back and you’re slacking, I’ll make you do it all over again! Do you hear me?”
  720. >they both gave a muffled agreement
  721. >Dash bellowed in the Canterlot voice, ”I can’t hear you!”
  722. >”Yes, Princess Rainbow Dash!”
  723. >”That’s more like it!”
  724. >she left the gym, and looked at the sky for a moment, then looked over her shoulder
  725. >”You’ll thank me later, guys,” Dash whispered. “We just needed to get you out of the palace for this… sheesh, I hope you’re right about all this, Twilight.”
  726. >she took flight, and headed for the palace
  727.  
  728. >”The Seed *has* to be here somewhere. Look harder!”
  729. >her drones returned to and left Chrysalis alone
  730. >she had finished binding the last of the palace guards with her resin, then shifted forms into the alicorn Celestia
  731. >the palace was under control; most had been fooled info helping with the broken wall
  732. >only a skeleton crew was left, who were now strung up and subdued with her magic
  733. >now came the true test
  734. >while she had lost the Seed for now, she still had plan-B
  735. >part of her evolution from consuming Cadance’s power, and the reason for her ambivalence to the deaths of her people…
  736. >Chrysalis wouldn’t need to breed to grow her numbers
  737. >with an isolated guard, she broke the spell keeping him unconscious
  738. >as the guard began to stir, she tapped into the stolen trait of natural empathy of the ruler of Equestria
  739. >she caressed the guard and purred, in Celestia’s voice, “my loyal subject, rest easy. I’ve will protect you. I love you, so dearly… I want you…”
  740. >”P- Princess Celestia,” the guard whispered
  741. >Chrysalis stroked and then kissed his cheek, then hugged him close
  742. >she could feel his rapid heartbeat
  743. >and with a flash of green in her eyes, she began to siphon his energy
  744. >he gasped, then sighed, as if resting easy, knowing that his beloved ruler was safe
  745. >after all, the connection was so much more heartfelt when Chrysalis wasn’t having to maintain mind control to fool the prey
  746. >she was layering Celestia’s stolen empathy over natural disdain
  747. >the power was so much deeper and richer!
  748. >she was fulfilling his deep seated wishes for such closeness with Celestia with ‘pure’, organic, heartfelt emotion
  749. >so intense was the drain, that colour left his body and his brawn melted away, leaving him emaciated
  750. >then Chrysalis sank her teeth into his neck, blackness filling his veins as she injected a venom that would eventually transform him into a compliant, uncaring drone
  751. >one unable to disobey her, and thus prevent him being converted to one of Thorax’s vile thralls!
  752. >and as Chrysalis stepped away as she digested his energy
  753. >and she giggled, then laughed, then cackled as her body subtly swelled an inch taller, a little stronger and bustier
  754. >so much power from just one simple peon!
  755. >Chrysalis moved on to the next bound prisoner
  756. >a female, one of Luna’s elite night watchers, alone in a corridor
  757. >the queen shifted into Luna’s tauter, athletic form
  758. >and she broke the guard from her reverie
  759. >”M- my lady!”
  760.  
  761. >curiously, she looked around and noticed they were alone, her mannerisms shifted
  762. >”Lulu… what’s happening?”
  763. >Chrysalis once more dug into her stolen personality traits
  764. >and it came with fleeting moments of memory
  765. >Chrysalis knelt beside the guard and said, “all is well, my beautiful Dancing Shade. You are safe.”
  766. >she ran her fingers through Dancing’s silky, deep red hair, then stroked her jaw and brought their lips together
  767. >once more, as Dancing closed hers, Chrysalis’ eyes flashed green
  768. >this was even more intense than the last!
  769. >Dancing gave into the moment, as her curves melted and firm physique weakened
  770. >and, with a parting, venomous nip of the neck, Chrysalis primed this one for transformation too
  771. >she consumed the energy
  772. >and immediately cried out in bliss as she stumbled and leaned on the wall
  773. >arousal shook through her, as the stolen memories mingled with the raw, untamed essence of Dancing’s secret, reciprocated love for the moon princess
  774. >her form was forcefully shifted back into the changeling queen
  775. >and she moaned as she sprouted a whole foot taller, to 9ft, her resin clothing straining
  776. >her slender limbs gaining smooth, subtle strength and her curves ballooned outward
  777. >she panted and recovered
  778. >that intense feeling!
  779. >there was something to this genuine emot-
  780. >”No!” Chrysalis snarled
  781. >she was aware of the risks, and this was why this emotion drain was plan-B, rather than just stealing the power of the princesses
  782. >but I’d this was what he power she could gain from a secret lover and she had recently stole some of Twilight’s soul…
  783. >those other girls; the brutish farmer, the meek, animal obsessed worm…
  784. >they were the elements of harmony
  785. >the untapped power Chrysalis could attain from them!
  786. >she just needed to finish absorbing the stolen trait she had taken from Twilight, leaving her dull and idiotic
  787. >Chrysalis suddenly saw a figure flying in from the city
  788. >Rainbow Dash
  789. >Chrysalis bares her teeth, then shifted into Twilight’s form
  790. >she just had to play for time
  791.  
  792. >”Hey, short stuff,” Dash said as she landed and approached the palace door’s guards, “is Twilight around?”
  793. >”She’ll be with you soon. Please wait in the throne room.”
  794. >Dash stared at the guard, then smiled, saluted and said, “sure thing.”
  795. >Dash headed as directed, to the empty throne room
  796. >it was… eerily quiet
  797. >but Dash smirked as she used the opportunity to sit on Celestia’s throne
  798. >”Sheesh, she calls this comfortable? This ain’t no chair befitting an amazing ass as mine.”
  799. >she stood and teleported Celestia’s throne elsewhere
  800. >then called in a massage chair she’d seen in a fancy Canterlot boutique
  801. >she then wielded even more power to make it enlarge in size, and sat down
  802. >it promptly entered reclining mode and buzzed as the little heaters and motors massaged her back, butt and legs
  803. >”*This* is being a princess!”
  804. >with another wave of her hand and glow of her horn, the tapestries and flags were replaced with Wonderbolt posters, emblems and even a few of her own promotional fliers, depicting her in a stylised way
  805. >well, her *old* set, anyway
  806. >they’d need updating to capture her true awesomeness
  807. >she rested her worries away before, at last, Twilight entered
  808. >”Hey, Rainbow Dash. Sorry I took so long.”
  809. >”S’up, Twi! Whaddya think?”
  810. >Dash gestured to the redecorations
  811. >”They’re… certainly ostentatious.”
  812. >Dash stared at Twilight for a moment, then shrugged
  813. >”So, what’s happening?”
  814. >”I think I have an idea on how to fix things, but we’ll need the Seed.”
  815. >”Oh, that thing? I thought you had it.”
  816. >Twilight pouted. “Strange. I wonder where that went. Never mind.”
  817. >Twilight smoothly strolled up to Dash
  818. >”You know… this really is a good look for you.”
  819. >”Oh, absolutely,” Dash said and flexed. “I don’t mean to brag, but… okay, I kinda do, but I’ve never looked better!”
  820. >”I wholeheartedly agree, in fact…”
  821. >Twilight moved closer still
  822. >climbed on the reclining chair
  823. >and rested her hands on Dash’s thick, powerful thigh
  824. >”I’ve been meaning to say that you were special before, but now?”
  825. >Dash lay still as Twilight slowly ran her hands up and ran them over her abs
  826. >”You’re the most special girl in -all of Equestria. A woman I could worship all day.”
  827. >Dash smirked. “Go on.”
  828. >Twilight crawled up and leaned over Dash’s face
  829. >”No more words…”
  830. >and leaned in to kiss… with a light flash of green in her eyes
