Main characters for the show don’t belong to me! Dusk and Sapphire Rush belongs to me! The thing at the end (not spoiling it for you all :P) belongs to Kinslayer023!
War of The Sky idea came from XemXemStar!
Okay pointing this out. This fic was published / started on February 3, 2013 (on DA it’s the 1st) and the movie came out on June 15, 2013. This was done long before the movie was even planned. So please do notreview/comment about how my Dusk sucks because this other pony (which I think they just throw him in for the hell of it) is canon.
It was late morning and Rainbow Dash was pacing.
“Where is she?” Dash asked as she looked in the sky for the millionth time.
“She’ll get here when she can,” she said.
“Yeah Rainbow Dash,” pipped in Applejack, “or did you forget what she told us yesterday?”
Dash sighed and humphed.
“I remember,” she said.
Sapphire Rush had told them that she would had to make sure Prince Dusk would be fine without her for a few hours. Twilight turned to her home.
“I’ll be right back guys,” she said.
Twilight walked into her home.
“Now where is that book?” she asked.
She had found a book about a sky war between the sun sister and a couple. All four could control the sun and moon. She thought Dusk would find it interesting, so she decided to give it to Sapphire to give to Dusk.
“That’s if I can find it first,” Twilight thought out loud.
Pinkie Pie was staring up at the sky, watching for Sapphire. Dash was behind her, arguing with Applejack. Pinkie jumped up when she spotted a blue Pegasus with a white Alicorn.
“I see them!” she shouted bouncing, “I see them! I see them!”
The others looked at Pinkie.
“Them?” Rarity asked looking up at the sky, “Is that Prince Dusk?”
“I thought he was a black Alicorn,” Stated Fluttershy.
Sapphire and the white Dusk landed. The white Dusk smiled.
“Hello again,” he said.
“You are Prince Dusk,” exclaimed Rarity, “but you’re white.”
Dusk and Sapphire laughed.
“My Prince changes color depending on weather the sun or moon is out,” Sapphire stated.
Everypony nodded in understanding. Dusk smirked.
“You ready for the race?” Dash asked.
“Of coarse,” she said.
Dusk looked around as those two got into position.
Hm, he thought, Twilight must be busy some where. Best not disturb her.
Dusk looked back at the racers. Rainbow Dash was low to the ground while Sapphire was just standing straight up.
“On your marks!” Applejack yelled, “Get set! Go!”
And they were gone with a blink of an eye. Dash looked behind her to see on far behind Sapphire. She smiled when she saw no pony.
“You ho!” shouted somepony.
Dash’s eyes widen. She looked beside her to see Sapphire smiling at her.
“Looking for little old me!?” Sapphire shouted.
Dash’s jaw dropped for a moment before she smirked. She sped up, only to have Sapphire beside her again.
She must be fast to keep up with me, Dash thought, Cool! I’ve been waiting for a challenge like this!
Dusk smiled. Sapphire used her old trick on Rainbow Dash to get the smaller Pegasus’ hopes up. Sapphire flew above Dash at the start and waited for her to look for Sapphire so the captain could slip in beside her.
“Oh Dusk you’re here,” said somepony behind him.
Dusk looked and smiled.
“Ah Twilight,” he said, “I was wondering where you were at.”
Twilight blushed a little.
“Oh,” she said as she floated a book out of her satchel. “I found this book in the palace some time ago and thought you might be interested in it.”
“Well let’s take a look,” said Dusk.
No matter how many times Rainbow Dash sped up, Sapphire Rush was right there beside her. Sapphire laughed. Dash looked at her.
“What’s so funny?” she asked.
“It’s just,” Sapphire began to answer, “I haven’t had this much fun in years.”
Dash smiled and went back to focusing on the race.
“Look!” yelled Sweety Bell, “They’re coming back!”
“Go Rainbow Dash!” Scootalou cheered.
The cutie mark crusaders had joined the others sometime ago. Everypony looked up. There was Dash’s rainbow streak and Sapphire’s blue on light blue streak.
“They’re coming in for the landing!” Pinkie shouted.
With a huge gust if wind the two passed everypony. They landed a few feet away. Dash and Sapphire panted and looked over at Applejack.
“Who won?” Dash asked.
Applejack was in a daze.
“Sis?” asked Applebloom.
“Did Rainbow Dash lose?” Sweety Bell asked.
“That’s impossible!” shouted Scootalou, “no pony can beat Rainbow Dash. No pony can even t-”
“It was a tie,” Applejack finally answered.
“WHAT!?” everypony shouted.
Dash looked at Sapphire as her jaw dropped. Sapphire just grinned.
“You’re really fast Rainbow Dash,” she complemented, “fast enough to be a guard captain at Alamoria.”
“I would keep that in mind,” she said, “but for now I want to try my best and fly with the wonder bolts.”
“I know, without a doubt, you’ll make it true,” she said.
Dash’s grin grew bigger. Sapphire looked around.
“Now where did Prince Dusk go?” she asked.
“Oh he went into the library with Twilight,” answered Rarity, “said something about looking at a book.”
Sapphire goggled. Everypony looked at her. She waved them off.
“How about you all show me around,” she said, “I would like to see what this place is like.”
Everypony smiled and nodded. They started leading her around.
Twilight watched Dusk as he read the book she found. He’s face would change from happy to sad to mad and then back to sad. He laid the book down and looked away.
“I don’t want to read anymore,” he stated.
Twilight frowned and looked at the page he stopped on. The picture on the page showed an Alicorn that had one side white and the other black. It was casting a spell on the couple that was trying to win control over the sun and moon. Twilight looked back up at Dusk. He had a very guilty look.
“Dusk…” she said.
Dusk turned to her and put a smile on his face.
“I’m fine,” he said, “just a memory I try to forget.”
Twilight Blushed and nodded. Dusk’s smiles always makes her heart race. Dusk looked out the window in thought before turning back to Twilight.
“So,” he started, “what is it like to be Celestia’s student?”
They had walked around Ponyville for a few hours before stopping at Sugar Cube Corner for something to eat. They were talking for a bit.
“So the alliance between Alamoria and Equastria is weak?” Rarity asked, unsure about herself.
“The older ponies think we shouldn’t be allies to Equistria,” she continued, “the younger ponies think other wise. That’s why Prince Dusk forced all of the older ones to retire.”
“I bet they like to cause fights,” said Rainbow Dash.
“Oh yes,” she said, “Prince Dusk had to threaten death to a few already.”
She looked up at the sky to see how far down the sun was.
“We need to leave soon,” she stated, “where is the library again?”
When they got to the library they could hear Twilight laughing. Sapphire open the door.
“Did he really say that?” Twilight asked.
“Oh he did,” he said and looked over at the door, “hey Sapphire!”
Sapphire smiled and step a side to let the friends through.
“My prince,” she said, “we best be leaving if you wish to make it to your lunch appointment with Shining Armor and Princess Cadance.”
“You’re having lunch with my brother and sister-in-law?” she asked.
“They wanted to get to know me better,” he answered, “plus to talk about a possible alliance with the Crystal Kingdom.”
Dusk smiled at Twilight again. Her heart raced again.
“I’ll make sure to tell Shining that you said hi,” Dusk said before he stepped out of her home and stretched his wings, “ ’till we meet again.”
“Thanks for the workout,” Sapphire said with a wink at Dash, “and thanks for showing me around.”
“You’re welcome!” beamed Pinkie.
They all waved at Dusk and Sapphire when they flew away.
Green silted eyes looked at the image of Twilight and Dusk in an orb. The eyes narrowed at Twilight.
“So you’re the one who hurt my sister and fouled her plans,” its voice said.
The image zoomed onto Dusk.
“It seems you are interested in the Alamorian prince too,” the voice said, “hmm I have an idea.”
The mouth that spoke grinned, showing white, razor sharp teeth.
“A most evil idea,” it said.
It then laughed a most evil laugh.
The lunch date will be in the next chapter and maybe the revile of the voice at the end :3 Also I made it a tie with Rainbow Dash because I want her to be fast, but not faster then Dash.
