You wake up to the sound of birds chirping as you do every day in Ponyville. It’s only been a month since you’ve moved here but it’s already feeling like you’ve lived here forever. You live in a quaint home on the same street as Twilight Sparkle which is very handy whenever you need a book. As you get out of your house and go out to do your daily chores you see a strange darkness envelope you and all around you. It is a quite sudden change and in response you look up in the sky to see if you can spot a cloud but the weird thing is it’s perfectly clear out. Everypony came out and started gasping and pointed at the sky. The predictable “The horror!” came out of lily as she almost fainted. In the time you’ve stayed in Ponyville you’ve found her to be quite the drama queen but at this point you’re beginning to be nervous too. From the great darkness in the sky you see a various array of bright colors coming from the sky. It suddenly hits you! It’s princess Celestia! You immediately bow along with many other ponies except for Twilight and her friends which were quite often regarded as heroes of Ponyville so it was no surprise that they came up to Celestia and asked what was going on.
“Well my student… it will take a long time to explain,” Celestia said to her student and her friends.
“Has Luna gone evil again?” Fluttershy asked meekly. Celestia just shook her head.
“It’s worse than that Fluttershy, much worse. Before I imprisoned my sister on the moon, before I was even a grown mare a great darknes-, well, this isn’t really the place to talk about it. Please meet me in Canterlot castle Twilight, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rarity and you,” It took you a while to realize Princess Celestia was staring at you.
“M-m-me?” You asked sounded quite afraid but the surprise from her pointing at YOU! YOU! You are still freaking out on the inside but your outside expression is completely blank. You hear ponies murmuring in the crowd about you being selected by the princess specifically to go to the castle. You had to admit that on the inside you were just as surprised as everypony else was. Celestia only nodded to your question and flew off to prepare for company at the castle; well at least you guess that.
30 Some minutes later a carriage came to pick you up with 2 well-built guardstaillions flying it. They motion you to get on while staying silent. You ask how they are but with no response you get on to the carriage. You should’ve brought a book or something because the ride was so long that you could almost get a good night’s sleep; or at least it felt like it. In reality it was probably only an hour but you’re used to be always doing something. Even when you’re relaxing you’re either watching your very out-dated T.V or reading a book. Once you FINALLY reach the castle you nod your appreciation, once again with no response, and then walk in. The castle looks absolutely huge from the inside from the beautiful stained glass windows to the highly decorated columns that line the side. As you keep walking down you see two doors so large they would dwarf Fillydelphia’s largest tower. As you walk towards them they open without any notice allowing you into Celestia’s throne room. As you walk in the others are already there and all you hear before you introduce yourself is “He may be our ONLY hope.” You hesitate for a moment and then walk in.
“Ah, hello! Please come in,” The princess says. You bow but she interrupts,
“No time for formalities, a great darkness is on our hooves and we need to focus as much as possible!” the princess somehow said without a hint of sternness in her voice. You raise your hoof and attempt to speak but Celestia interrupts you with the answer you wanted,
“You are the key to helping us out of this, you see as I was saying before, you are the descendant of a very well-known unicorn… so well known that he’s the one that sealed this away the first time it happened. He was… very close to my mother *ahem* well that’s besides the point, legend has it that right before he died he cast a spell in which all of his kin and his kin’s kin and so on so forth could cast the spell to seal away the darkness but only while wielding the Elements of Harmony. That’s why I need Twilight and her friends to go with you, they are the wielders of the Elements of Harmony as of now except the Elements were stolen and need to be retrieved. I cannot come with you for the simple reason that I have to watch over the destruction and try to minimize the damage dealt to Equestria while your gone,” Celestia let her teacher’s instinct take over.
“Anyone have any questions,” You just have millions of questions in your head but you let only one escape your lips,
“What IS the darkness anyways?” Celestia lowers her head and sighs.
“I was hoping I could avoid this question but I guess I was being wishful,” Celestia began.
“It’s a long story...”
