The sun was setting and Luna was on the second floor looking
out a window when Stardust approached her. He noticed she was
just standing there staring at the sky.
"Watching the clouds?" Stardust asked.
Luna turned her head without smiling, "No, I was just noticing
the full moon coming out."
"Oh," Stardust replied, he had a feeling what Luna
was going to ask next.
"Can...Can we go see my parents?" Luna asked.
Stardust had completely forgotten about her adopted parents till
now. They have to know who Luna's real father is but would they
"Yes we can. I have a few things I need to tell them,"
Stardust turned and went to find his brothers, "We can leave
as soon as I find Skyview and Starfire."
Luna smiled greatly, "I'll meet you outside."
Stardust went to Starfire's room and knocked.
Stardust peeked in, "Lets go."
Starfire was on the balcony watching the soldiers on the walls.
He turned and saw Stardust's head, "Where to?"
"We're going to see Luna's adopted parents. Meet me outside."
Stardust left and headed downstairs. He went to the library and
found Skyview reading a book on the couch, "Lets go."
Skyview looked up from his book, "Go where?"
"We're going to see Luna's adopted parents," Stardust
turned and left.
Skyview put the book on the table and hurried out of the room.
he followed Stardust outside where Starfire and were waiting.
the sun was quickly setting and Luna couldn't wait to see her
parents again. They walked to the gate and waited while Stardust
talked to Banner. A minute Banner went and gathered a small group
of soldiers. They followed Stardust out of the gate and down
the dirt road.
Luna smiled greatly as she walked next to Stardust.
"I can't wait till mom and dad finds out who you are,"
Luna said excitedly.
"Don't tell them, Luna. I'll explain it to them," Stardust
"Ok," Luna replied.
They walked off the road and into the thick forest. It wasn't
long till Luna saw the Gate.
"Now we have to wait till the sun goes down in a few minutes,"
The soldiers stood around the Gate while Stardust, Luna and his
brothers sat in front of the Gate waiting for it to open.
When the sun had disappeared in the horizon, a rippling image,
like clear water appeared under the Gate.
"It's open," Stardust announced. "Banner I want you
and the soldiers to guard the Gate."
Stardust turned and walked through the Gate with Luna and his
brothers behind him.
As soon as the stepped through the Gate their coats began
to glow. Luna had almost forgotten about her glow. It took a
few minutes for her eyes to adjust to the bright glow. The sky
was still light but was slowly getting darker.
Stardust left the ruins with Luna close behind him and his brother
next to her. They walked through the tall grass and down the
hill towards her house. They stopped and stood at the edge of
the forest looking around.
"There's a few ponies farther down the street," Skyview
I see that," Stardust replied." Starfire come with me and
hide your wings. Skyview and Luna, you two can wink to the door
when the door opens."
"Ok, "Skyview replied.
Starfire folded his wings to his side and walked next to Stardust
hiding his wings from view. They walked out of the forest and
up to the house. Stardust knocked on the door. A minute later
Booster answered the door and was surprised to see them.
"You...back?" Booster asked looking around for Luna.
Just then Skyview and Luna winked next to Starfire. Booster smiled.
Luna hurried inside and hugged Booster while the black ponies
Skyview shut the door and followed his brothers to the livingroom.
"Lunarstar, how have you been?" Booster asked.
"Fine," Luna continued to hug him, "I missed you
"We missed you too."
Just then Rosebud came out of the kitchen after hearing Luna's
voice. she went to the door and smiled with tears slowly dripping
from her cheek, "Lunarstar."
Luna turned around and hugged Rosebud, "Mom!"
While Luna and Rosebud hugged each other Booster went to the
livingroom to talk to the black ponies.
"Did you bring Lunarstar hear to visit or stay?" Booster
"To visit for the time being," Stardust answered, "would
you sit down? I have something very important to tell you and
"About what?" Booster asked.
"It's about Luna and us," Stardust replied.
Booster left the livingroom and went to the door. Rosebud and
Luna were still hugging each other.
"Rosebud, you need to come to the living room with me. Lunarstar
why don't you call your friends and let them know your back?"
"Sure," Luna hurried to the livingroom and took the
phone to the dinning room.
"Why?" Rosebud asked him.
"It's about Lunarstar. They said it's important."
Rosebud followed Booster to the livingroom and sat down on the
Stardust began to tell them about his memories and Luna's real
name. He told them about her as a baby and her real mother while
Luna talked on the phone.
"Melody, it's me."
"Lunarstar?" Melody asked surprisingly.
"Yeah! Come over before I have to leave again."
"Ok, let me call the others first."
"Ok, bye." Luna hung up the phone and waited at the
door or her friends. She sat on the steps and waited while she
listened to Stardust telling stories.
When Luna heard a knock, she looked out the window and saw it
was her friends. Luna quickly opened the door letting her friends
in, once they were all in, she shut the door and gave them a
"Lunarstar, it's great to see you again!" Patch exclaimed
"I see those three Black ponies came with you," Starlight
"Well, yes but...there's a lot I have to tell you,"
"Lunarstar!" Booster called, "Take your friends
into another room, please."
"Ok, dad!" Luna took them in the next room where she
had previously spent her time opening presents on her birthday.
They stood around Luna and listened.
"I learned a lot about me when you last saw me," Luna
"Learned what?" Clover asked.
"Well, my real name is Luna but you guys should still call
Skyview could hear Luna starting to explain to her friends
"Stardust I think, I'll go explain to her friends about...this,"
Skyview stood up and left the living room.
"I'll go with him," Starfire added as he followed Skyview.
They walked in just as Luna told her friends who her real father
"Are you serious?" Melody exclaimed.
"Yes!" Skyview answered as he walked in, "It's
true, Stardust is her real father. Me and Starfire are her uncles."
The girls stood speechless.
"But..you guys tried to catch your own niece?" Bon
The two boys looked at each other sadly then looked at the girls.
"We feel bad about that and we probably will never get over
it either," Starfire answered.
"Will Luna ever come and stay like before?" Sweetheart
Skyview sighed sadly, he knew how much Luna meant to the girls,
"I don't know."
"We won't know till we get the Kingdom back," added
"Kingdom?" they asked.
"You mean...Ponyland?" Starlight asked.
"Yes, Ponyland and Dream Castle. Once everything is back
to normal...it'll be up to Stardust as to what he will do,"
Luna looked at them sadly, she hated the thought of never coming
Patch noticed Clover peeking through the cracks of the curtains.
"Clover?" Patch asked.
"Raspberry is across the street hiding behind a fence,"
"I told you guys I saw her following us in the park,"
Bon Bon exclaimed.
"Sorry, Bon Bon," Starlight replied.
"Who?" Starfire asked.
"I nosy brat...little pony," Melody answered.
Skyview walked to the window and peeked through the cracks, When
he saw her ducking behind a fence, he smiled, "I remember
her." he turned around towards Starfire, "With her
watching the door, we can't just walk out. I have better take
care of her."
"Your not going to send her away like you were going to
the last time are you?" Luna asked worriedly.
"No...uh...how did you know that?" Skyview asked her.
"I..ummm...dad must have mentioned it," Luna answered.
She had forgotten they didn't know she could change her appearance.
"Oh. Well...Don't tell Stardust I left," Skyview winked
Raspberry hid behind a fence watching the house.
"I thought they said Lunarstar was on vacation?" Raspberry
muttered to herself.
"There you are!" a voice cried.
Raspberry jumped, all four feet had left the ground. She turned
around and gasped at the sight of Skyview standing there.
"I let you go last time but not this time!"
Raspberry took off running down the street.
Skyview winked out.
The girls laughed when they saw Raspberry running. Skyview
appeared in the room behind the girls.
"Well, she's gone and I don't think she'll be back for a
while," Skyview remarked.
"what did you do to her?" Patch asked.
"Oh, I just told her I wouldn't let you go this time. That's
when she ran," Skyview answered.
The girls looked at his with confused faces.
"I caught her a while back and Stardust made me let her
go...That whole things still bothers me. Stardust wanted us to
get rid of her and then he wants us to let her go. That was a
strange night," Skyview explained.
"It certainly was and when we got back to the shack, he
was sound asleep," Starfire added looking at Skyview.
The girls glanced at Luna, knowing she had something to do with
it. Luna put her hoof in front of her mouth and shook her head.
she didn't want her uncles knowing she could change. She knew
they should know but she wanted to wait till the right time to
"Oh well," Skyview replied, "we should see if Stardust
is ready to return."
The two black ponies left as the girls slowly followed them.
"They don't know?" Starlight asked in a whispering
"No...well, not yet anyways," Luna replied.
Skyview heard the girls and wondered what Luna was talking about.
"Don't know about what?" Skyview thought.
"So you see, it was important that Luna had stayed with
us," Stardust finished telling his story.
Booster and Rosebud were silent. They were surprised at what
Stardust hap told them.
"You're..her real father?" Rosebud asked surprisingly.
"King of Ponyland...When you get your Kingdom back will we
ever see Lunarstar...I mean Luna again?" Booster asked.
Stardust thought about it. It wouldn't be right for them to never
see Luna again and they did a great job raising her.
"Luna can visit but I'm afraid she wouldn't be able to stay
since she is Princess of Ponyland and needs to learn how I rule
the land. You can call her Lunarstar. I don't want anyone in
this world knowing her real name or anyone in our world knowing
she's Lunarstar...I feel it'll be safer that way."
The parents were sad but tried to smile.
"Well, at lest we can still see her," Booster said
Rosebud smiled, "yes."
"I would like to thank you for taking such good care of
Luna and keeping her safe...from us for a short time," Stardust
added, "I'm sure my wife would be pleased to know what you
two did in raising our daughter."
Rosebud was so honored that tears trickled down her cheek.
"Thank you," Booster replied.
Skyview and Starfire walked in with the girls behind them.
"Stardust, are you ready to leave?" Skyview asked.
"Yes, I am," Stardust replied.
Luna went to her parents and hugged them.
"It seems like you just get here and you have to leave again,"
"I'll be back...I promise," Luna muttered as a tear
trickled down her face.
Booster gave Luna a hugged, "Be good and stay out of trouble."
"I will...dad." Luna turned and gave her friends a
group hug, "I'll call you when I get back."
"Ok," the girls sobbed.
Booster, Rosebud and the girls went to the door and waved them
"I'll be back won't I?" Luna asked once she was
in the forest.
"To visit," Stardust answered.
"Oh," Luna sighed, she had hoped she could stay next
"Luna, don't think about it know. You were here and that's
all it maters," Starfire commented.
Luna looked up at him and smiled, "It was great to see them
