Tierney stood staring at Blizzard angrily, "on second thought...why
wait and kill you later when your right here," he opened
his mouth and blew fire at Blizzard.
The black ponies jumped out of the way, Blizzard ducked low to
the grass laying flat as he could. The heat of the flames felt
hot to his back. He could only guess the flames were with in
inches of him.
Soldiers in armor gathered around Tierney pointing their swords
at him. Tierney glared at them annoyingly. When they came close
to him, Tierney made his wings appear from the flames shooting
out from his sides. The soldiers flew back to the ground, some
got burned from the flames. Tierney spread his wings and smiled,
"I haven't had a fight in centuries. Of corse if this is
all you got then your nothing but a bunch of weak ponies."
Stardust ran towards him, Tierney blew fireballs at him. Stardust
ran as fast as he could around Tierney, all you could see was
a black and blue blur.
"You're the speedy one...huh?" Tierney muttered.
Just then Starfire flew as fast as he could and hit Tierney on
the side. Tierney fell to the ground taking Starfire with him,
then he kicked Starfire over his head, sending him to a tree.
Starfire hit the tree and fell to the grass, feeling to sore
to get up.
Skyview turned into a cloud and flew around Tierney, just as
he was about to close in on him, Tierney spread his wings and
flapped them causing a guest of wind. Skyview was instantly blown
away. He flew to Starfire's side and returned to his pony form.
"Are you ok?" Skyview asked him.
"I'm not going to be laying on my back for awhile but yes
I'm fine," Starfire replied.
Tierney looked at Blizzard with cold uncaring eyes. Just as he
was about to take a step, Stardust ran in front of him, knocking
him to the ground. Stardust stopped next to his brothers and
turned around facing Tierney, "Now!..get him!"
Soldiers stood up and ran towards him. Tierney stood up looking
angrily, he swirled around ruffling his leather wings. The soldiers
suddenly stopped when they heard him growl. Blizzard was shocked,
he never heard Teriney growl or knew that he had wings.
"Your getting on my nerves!" Tierney hissed, "I'm
through playing." Fire appeared from his body, swallowing
him till not a fur or hair could be seen. The flames grew taller
than the trees and then the flames dissolved. There stood a tall
red, white and green dragons. Two sharp fangs stuck out from
his mouth. The stripes on it's back was white, his feet and plated
belly was red. He had to four long sharp alicorn horns with five
pointed spikes on his head. Two small spikes on his jew and long
fins on his neck. From his shoulder to half way past his tail
were spikes. At the end of his tail were four sharp ships. His
large leathery green wings hung at his sides.
Blizzard gasped shockingly. The soldiers backed away. Stardust
and his brothers were surprised, he looked different than Fallon
did and much older too.
"And to think he was chasing me that night," Starfire
whispered not daring to take his eyes off him.
Luna had left Dream Castle without her mother knowing it and
winked to Paradise estate. She knew her mother had said something
about it and figured her father was going past it. She flew from
the estate and continued flying long after Paradise estate was
out of her site. She immediately saw Tierney as a dragon and
stopped in mid air.
"I'm to late," Luna thought, "I got to do something."
Tierney lowered his large head towards Blizzard.
"I do believe you never seen me like this and it'll be the
last time you see me too," Tierney said.
He lifted his large front foot and went to stomp on Blizzard
but missed him.
Blizzard rolled out of the way, he wanted to get to his feet
but there wasn't enough time. Tierney stomped his foot but missing
him every time. Blizzard jumped to his feet in fear and started
to run but then Tierney's tail knocked him to the ground again,
this time it was to late to move out of the way. Tierney stomped
his foot on Blizzard, trying to crush him. Blizzard cried in
agony but soon lost his breath to yell. The soldiers and the
black ponies ran to attack Tierney but with one swing of Tierney's
tail, they all flew back.
"Now to end your life," Tierney told him.
He leaned his weight on Blizzard watching him trying to gasp
for air. As he watch he began to hear a noise. It sounded like
a bird in his ear but he knew that wasn't possible. He stopped
pressing on Blizzard's body and looked up, before he realized
what was happening, Kesia landed shaking the ground with her
dragon body and then she spit a green slime at his face. Tierney
instantly let Blizzard go and roared in agony. Kesia spit again
and again, hitting his side and wing. Blizzard laid on the ground
trying to catch his breath again.
Flames surrounded Tierney, shrinking him to pony size. When he
returned to his pony form, the green fur had been eaten and the
green slime had covered most of his body. Kesia lowered her head
growling angrily at Tierney. She opened her mouth to grab him
but he dashed from her. She continued snapping her mouth at him
missing him by inches. Tierney ran for the forest and was just
about to reach it when Kesia had grabbed the hair tips of his
red and white tail in her mouth. He pulled hard till the hair
came out from his tail, then he ran as fast as he could. Kesia
lowered her head, chasing him into the forest but he was in to
deep for her large body to follow.
"You got me by surprise this time but you won't be so lucky
next time!" Tierney yelled.
Kesia turned her head and looked at Blizzard who stared at her
"Change back and you better have a good explanation why
you're here!" Stardust yelled.
Kesia sat down, wrapping her tail around her, she closed her
eyes and began to glow. A white sparkly water appeared surrounding
her as she shrunk. When Luna had returned to her original form,
stood up feeling a little weak in the legs.
"Well?" Stardust said as he approached her.
"I...wanted to warn you about Tierney but I guess I was
to late," Luna quickly explained.
"Warn me about what?" Stardust asked curiously.
"That Tierney was a dragon."
"How could you have known that?" Skyview asked.
"I remembered Tierney had spit a slimy stuff at Blizzard.
It took me awhile to remember that only dragons can spit like
that. They spit in case of an emergency...as a last resort. To
a pony it hurts their skin and eats their fur but to a dragon
it eats their scales which is like skin to a dragon," Luna
"So that's why Tierney changed back to a pony," Starfire
"Yes, to keep it from eating his scales," Luna explained.
She looked at Blizzard and hurried over to him. He looked up
at her suspiciously not sure what he just saw.
"What?" Luna asked wondering why he's staring at her.
"W-what happened?" Blizzard finally asked, "What
was that big...thing?"
"A dragon," Stardust answered.
Blizzard looked at Luna curiously, "Are you a dragon too?"
"Sort of," Luna answered, "I used to be. I died
as a dragon and was reborn as a winged unicorn. I can still change
to my dragon form but it will never again be my true form."
Blizzard sat up still taking deep breaths, "He tried to
crush me to death. I could barley breath." Luna could see
the scared look on his face knowing he came close to dying.
"Are you alright?" Skyview asked.
"I feel crushed," Blizzard looked at the ground worriedly,
"I don't ever want that to happen again." He looked
up at Luna, "I would have died if it wasn't for you."
Luna smiled and nuzzled him not caring what her father might
have been thinking about them. Blizzard stood up feeling sore.
He walked around trying to get the crushed feeling out of his
"You said you were coming back," Luna exclaimed, "You
said you were but you didn't!"
Blizzard sighed sadly, "I was coming back, it just took
me a little longer. fath-I mean Tierney had chased me into my
room. He slept their and was going to let me die of starvation.
When he finally fell asleep I left. Tierney woke up and began
to chase me. That's when I saw an army at the base of the volcano."
"That was a very stupid thing to do," Stardust suddenly
said, "You should have known better than to return home.
You of all the ponies should know what he would have done to
Blizzard sighed shamefully, "I know. I was stupid in returning
home. I thought I could face him without fear and destroy him
but...I was still scared of him and probably always will."
"Now that I know my parents are dead I have no where to
go," Blizzard said changing the subject.
"What?" Luna explained, "Your parents are dead?"
"Yes, Tierney killed them. I'm all that's left of my family,"
"You can come with us to the castle. I'm sure I can get
you some kind of job in town and have your patched body cleared
like new," Stardust proposed..
Luna looked at her two uncles sadly. Starfire and Skyview looked
at her knowing why she was so sad. Luna still worried about who
she was going to marry.
Blizzard walked past Stardust and stopped, he looked at the forest,
then at the mountains and towards Dream Castle. He turned facing
Stardust, "Thank you for the offer but...I think I'll go
exploring. See the world. meet other ponies and see what strange
creatures I can find. I was born and lived in this world but
I don't know this world."
"Your leaving?" Luna asked.
Blizzard smiled at her, "I'm just going to explore. I'll
be back to see you again."
Luna looked worriedly at him, "Are you sure?"
"Luna, I feel there's so much to learn, so much to see.
I can't do that here but I will be back." He stood on his
hind legs and took off his golden necklace, then he placed it
around her neck, "hold this till I get back. That's pure
gold and I don't want to loose it. I'm sure my parents gave that
to me so it's all I have of them," Blizzard smiled, "With
that on you can see your friends and family anytime you want,
day or night."
Luna hugged him, "Thank you."
He let go, "I must go now," He turned and faced the
black ponies, "Thank you for helping me. I feel..free thanks
to you three." Blizzard walked from Luna, "Bye."
Then he turned into a cluster of snowflakes and flew past the
volcano towards several mountains.
Stardust looked at Luna, "Does your mother know you're
Luna sighed sadly, "No."
"Get home immeaditly. I will talk to you later," Stardust
"I'm sorry dad," Luna muttered then she winked out.
"You know Stardust, Blizzard is an orphan and he's good
at taking responsibility," Starfire pointed out.
"You can change the rules. I don't think the kingdom will
mind," Skyview added.
"Besides he does have a special ability like us," Starfire
"Just let her marry him," Skyview said bluntly.
"I will have to give this some great deal of thought,"
Stardust said to them, "Alright I want every soldier in
The soldiers lined up in rows of two behind the three black ponies.
Stardust turned and began walking home with the soldiers marching
"Tierney said he found his parents in a tent during a blizzard.
What would they be doing in a tent in a blizzard?" Skyview
wondered out loud.
"Maybe his parents are travelers and traveled a lot,"
"Travelers are poor ponies, how could his parents get a
hold of a golden necklace?" Stardust asked.
"From trades?" Starfire guessed, "I hear you can
get all kinds of stuff from travelers who traded a lot. Some
are not as poor as they look."
"And lets not forget that necklace is the key to the gates,"
"A key?" Stardust asked, "how could any pony get
a hold of that? It should be in our family if it's part of the
gates and Blizzard is not part of our family."
They continued walking as they talked about Blizzard and the
