Luna was on her bed working on her school work when she heard
a noise outside. She closed her book and climbed off her bed
and walked to her balcony. She leaned over the railing and saw
an army of soldiers in silver armor, marching into the yard.
In front of them was a royal family that Luna had never seen
before. She was curious as to what was going. Who were they?
Why did they come? two of the soldiers carried a gray and purple
flag, it was clear that was their royal colors. She stood and
continued watching as Banner greeted them at the castle steps.
Her silver jeweled collar sparkled in the sunlight catching the
royal family's attention. Just then another group of soldiers
walked through the castle gates, lead be another royal family.
Luna knew something was going on and she had to find out. She
turned from the railing and walked past her bed to her door.
She walked down the hall and was about to reach the stairs when
Skyview suddenly appeared in front of her catching her by surprise.
"Skyview!...What's going on?" Luna asked, "Why
are they all here?"
"You'll find out soon, just stay in your room and your parents
will come and get you," Skyview answered.
"Luna, please. I promise you'll know soon."
"Ok," Luna replied then she turned and walked back
to her room. She was disappointed that she didn't find out. Questions
continued running through her head. Why wouldn't he tell her?
What was he keeping from her?
She went to her room and sat on her bed thinking about the
two royal families that arrived and Skyview's strange behavior.
She opened her school book and tried to do her school work but
she couldn't concentrate, her mind was fill with questions and
curiosity. She closed the book and walked to the balcony and
leaned on the railing. She watched royal families and soldiers
as they continued to arrive.
She could hear the sounds of soldiers muttering and hoof steps.
The castle wall had not only her father's soldiers but other
soldiers from other kingdoms. Just then a small army of Flutter
ponies arrived. Luna smiled and waved at King Arrow Heart and
Queen Calla Lilly as they flew by but they didn't say anything
only smiled at her.
The male flutter ponies scattered around the wall while King
Arrow Heart and Queen Calla Lilly landed at the steps and followed
a royal Family inside the castle.
Luna wondered if her parents was having an important meeting
and they didn't want her in the way. When the sun began to set,
the last royal family finally arrived.
Stardust and Royal Heart walked into Luna's room and saw her
curiously watching the soldiers.
"Luna," Royal Heart called to her.
Luna smiled greatly, she turned and hurried to them. She was
happy to finally see them and she quickly hugged them.
"I hardly seen you two for two days.
"I'm sorry Luna but we had something important to do,"
Luna let go and looked up at him curiously, "Like what?"
Stardust and Royal Heart looked at each other. Luna was getting
worried at the sudden silence they were giving each other.
"I don't see why we can't tell her now," Royal Heart
finally replied, then she walked to Luna's dresser and picked
up the white brush.
"Did you know a special day for you?" Stardust asked.
"special?" Luna asked as she pondered in his question.
She thought hard but couldn't think of anything that would make
today so special.
Royal Heart brushed Luna's long white mane till all the tangle
"You don't remember?" Royal Heart asked.
Royal Heart then brushed Luna's long white tail and then her
fluffy white feathered wings.
"What is it then?" Luna asked after a while.
Stardust smiled, "It's your birthday, Luna."
Luna gasped, "My...birthday? but it can't be, that not for..."
"Luna today is your birthday. Your adopted parents used
to celebrate it on the day they found you," Stardust explained.
"Oh," Luna exclaimed, "I'm not used to celebrate
my real birthday."
Her parents laughed and then nuzzled her cheek.
"Well today you are 15 and our birthday girl has a big party
to get to," Stardust smiled at her.
Luna smiled greatly, she now understood all the arrival of the
royal families and why she hadn't seen her parents for two days.
"You planned my birthday party?" Luna asked.
"Yes, we couldn't have you here while we got ponies decorating
the castle," Royal Heart explained.
"Come on Luna, you don't want to be late for your birthday,"
Stardust told her.
"Is it in the ballroom?" Luna asked.
"No, not this time. There are more royal families than your
last party. Even the sea ponies came and with all the little
ponies that came I thought it was best to have it in the throne
room," Stardust replied.
"In there?" Luna asked.
"Of course. We only have parties in the throne room for
special occasions and our little girl's birthday is special to
us," Royal Heart replied.
They quickly left her room and walked through the hall towards
Once they reached the bottom steps Luna saw Banner in silver
armor with a green cape over his back, he stood in front of the
steps and nodded his head.
"Banner, did you know today is my birthday?" Luna asked
Banner smiled, "Yes I did. Happy birthday Princess Luna."
Luna smiled, "Thank you," Then she turned and followed
her parents down a long hallway towards the throne room. Luna
suddenly stopped at the doors when she noticed Charades and another
soldier at the door, they too wore shinny silver armor.
"Charades," Luna muttered.
Charades nodded her head and smiled.
"It's ok, we told her," Stardust told him.
"Happy birthday Princess Luna," Charades told her.
Luna smiled, she was excited to get in the room. She never had
a royal birthday party before.
"Thank you, Charades," Luna replied and then followed
her parents into the room. At the stairs ahead of them was Buster
in shinny armor, He smiled and then faced the stairs.
"King, Queens, Princess and Princes, please welcome the
arrival of King Stardust, Queen Royal Heart and their daughter,
Princess Luna!" Buster announced
Luna followed her parents to the stairs and stood for a minute
looking at the Royal Ponies. There were tables covered in white,
green and gold silk clothes. On the tables were glasses and a
basket of white roses in the center. In front of the large square
water fountain was a long table with her uncles and grandparents
sitting behind it. Around the water fountain was a light green
and white cloth streamer at the base and along the side banisters.
Gold and white flower garlands wrapped around each pillar with
the streamers stung from one pillar to the next. Light green
pearl balloon were tied to the corners of the royal table and
on each pillar. The center of the water fountain had ten colorful
"Well, lets go," Stardust whispered to her.
Luna followed her parents on the red carpet as she looked at
the tables on each side of her. She noticed King Arrow Heart
and Queen Calla Lilly at one fo the tables, they smiled and nodded
their heads as Luna walked by. Behind the royal ponies at the
round tables were cooks standing at the long rectangle tables
in the back which stretched all the way to the water fountain.
They walked to the water fountain and turned around standing
in front of their long table.
"Welcome and thank you all for coming to our daughter's
birthday party. Some of you have come very far to be here and
we thank you for that," Stardust looked at Luna and smiled,
"Today is Luna's birthday, she is officially 15 years old."
Stardust noticed Luna staring at the table by the stairs which
was full presents in many different shapes and colors, "My
daughter has spotted the presents which she will open later to
Luna blushed and all the ponies laughed.
"We'll start off with dinner, then the birthday cake and
afterwards the dance. There will be refreshments during the dance
if you still wish to eat," Stardust smiled at Royal Heart
and Luna then he turned and walked to the table. Luna turned
and followed her parent to the three large chairs. Her parents
sat in the largest golden hair, she was about to sit in the second
largest chair when she suddenly noticed the sea ponies in the
"Luna, sit," Royal Heart whispered.
Luna quickly sat down.
"There's plenty of time to meet the sea ponies later,"
Royal Heart whispered to her.
Seven cooks walked from the long tables to the royal tables and
sat a silver plate on the table. Once everyone have received
their plate, they waited till Stardust began eating. The cooks
gave the sea ponies seaweed.
As Luna ate she looked around and noticed a few Princes and
Princess wearing small crowns and some did not. Every pony in
the room was talking, they even glanced at Luna every now and
"Mom, they're about my age and they're wearing crowns,"
"They're a little older than you and are of the right age
to get one. You'll get one on your next birthday," Royal
"Can I see mine sometime?" Luna asked.
"I'm afraid not. Not until your next birthday. Luna, just
enjoy not wearing one while you still can and don't worry about
"What's it look like?"
"It's pretty and smaller than mine," Royal Heart replied.
"I...ummm, figured it would be pretty," Luna muttered.
She had hoped her mother would described the crown she'll be
Royal Heart smiled, "Just wait till our 16th birthday, then
you can look at it all you want."
"I'm anxious to see it."
"I know," Royal Heart replied with a smile.
They continued eating till everyone finished. The cooks came
to each table and removed the plates. Then one of the cooks came
to the royal table with a long white cake that had pink flowers
on it. In the center was the royal crest. On each side of the
cake was a crescent moon stung from a pink and gold laced garland.
Around the cake were green pearly candles but they were not
"It's pretty and it's even got the crest. Buster and Charades
had one put on my cake on my 13th birthday."
"They did?" Royal Heart asked.
"Yes and it was pretty too."
Just then a three layered white, green and gold cake was rolled
on a cart in front of the royal table. On the cake were flowers,
moon, hearts and the royal crest, on the sides were laced and
garlands tied up with moons.
One of the cooks lit a match and set each candle on fire, then
he blew out the match.
The room became silent and stared at Luna.
"Blow the candles out," Stardust told her.
"I think she needs to make a wish first," Starfire
Luna smiled, she knew the wish she wanted.
"Going to wish for something?" Royal Heart asked her.
"I just did," Luna replied and then she took a deep
breath and blew the candles out.
Everyone clapped their hooves and smiled. Stardust noticed Skyview
trying his best to act like the clapping noise didn't bother
"You ok?" Stardust asked him.
"I will be in a minute," Skyview replied.
When the clapping was done, the cooks cut the long cake and placed
a piece of cake on Luna's plate, then they continued to serve
Luna ate her marble cake, enjoying every bite. By the time
she was done, she had ate three pieces. The music band quickly
finished eating and hurried to the other side of the water fountain
and began playing their music on stage. After Stardust and Royal
Heart was done, they stood up from their chairs.
"Luna, are you done?" Stardust asked her.
Luna stood up from her chair and followed her parents to the
thrones. They walked past the music band and followed the red
carpet to the thrones. Stardust and Royal Heart sat down while
Luna sat between them on the floor. It wasn't long till Skyview
and Starfire joined them next to Stardust's throne.
Then their parents joined them.
"So Luna, what do you think of the party so far?" Skyview
"Having dinner and cake wasn't too bad."
"The fun part has just started. Watching everyone dance
and laugh...that is the real party," Starfire exclaimed
As ponies slowly finished their cake, they walked around the
water fountain and began dancing with each other. As she watch
the dance floor she suddenly noticed something flying high towards
"What's that?" Luna asked looking up.
"Those are the Summer wings ponies and windy wing ponies,"
"Windy wings?" Luna asked surprisingly, "I thought
they would be sleeping."
"Yes they normally would be but Queen Rosy Peach managed
to talk them into joining the party," Stardust explained.
"The booshwoolies are here too, playing with the baby ponies,"
Royal Heart replied.
"I thought it would keep the baby ponies busy and at the
same time keep them away from the cooks," Stardust explained.
"Where's....ummm...Wishes?" Luna asked, "I hardly
"He's here too," Sunlight answered.
Luna looked around among the ponies and tables, it took her a
while to find them. They were playing near the stairs.
"Have you danced before, Luna?" Ribbon Lock asked.
"No, I haven't. I don't know how," Luna replied looking
up at him.
"Well then let me teach you."
"Now?" Luna asked surprisingly.
"Yes, now is a great time," Ribbon Lock replied and
left the thrones walking to the dance floor, "Well, come
Luna hesitated at first, she didn't like the idea of dancing
in front of everyone.
"Go on Luna," Royal Heart urged her.
Luna left her parents and walked to her grandfather. He stood
on his hind legs and she stood on her hind legs. He held her
hoof while putting his other hoof on her back.
"Now just do what I do," Ribbon Lock told her.
Skyview and Starfire stood watching her for some time, even the
Princes nearby watched her.
"I think there's quite a few boys who wouldn't mind dancing
with her," Starfire pointed out.
"They can just wait their turn," Skyview quickly said,
"I'm going to dance with her next."
"Then I'll dance with her after you," Starfire replied.
"I just hope I get a chance to dance with her before the
night is over," Stardust added.
Royal Heart and his brothers laughed.
Once, Skyview saw that Luna was getting the hang of dancing,
he left the thrones and walked to the dance floor and up to his
father, "Dad, mind if I dance with her?"
Ribbon Lock smiled, "Go right ahead but watch your feet.
She tends to like stepping on mine."
Luna laughed, "I didn't meant to."
"It's quite alright," Ribbon Lock replied then he turned
and left, heading back to Sunlight and started dancing with her.
Starfire stood and watched for some time as Luna danced around
with Skyview. She smiled and laughed.
"I think it's my turn now," Starfire muttered, then
he walked to the dance floor and approached Skyview, "My
Skyview paused, "Alright."
Starfire took Luna and began dancing as he folded his wings so
he wouldn't hit anyone with them.
"Luna, It's best to fold your wings when your dancing,"
Starfire told her.
"Why?" Luna asked.
"You'll hit someone with them."
"Oh, I didn't think of that," Luna replied and she
quickly folded her wings.
Stardust and Royal Heart smiled as they watched their daughter
dance around the floor, laughing and smiling with Starfire.
