As it seems, the limit of my first thread has been peaked! Your Princess of the Night enjoys the new record she has set on this forum. In such a case, may this Ask thread prosper and shine like the night itself!

Now, to continue the tradition. Let the new thread commence!

A green crystal pony approaches the guards at the entrance diffidently.

Excuse me? I'm told that the Princess Luna takes visitors. Is that right?

Edge flies up closer to Luna, "Where are we?"
"if all the stars in the sky are my enemy,
May they know that they are still not worthy opponents."

A very shaken looking stallion, escorted by two guards approaches. You can see a tremble in his walk, his eyes. Behind his spectacles seem to lie a great fear, but upon seeing the princess, he seems to relax ever so slightly. His rapid breathing slowing down, just a touch, as he gives a slight bow.

"Your highness," the words come out as if he'd had a sore throat, the volume of his voice trembling. "May I, err, speak to you for... just a moment! I think it's, well, uh, important!"

The guards looked at each other, and one of them waved a hoof to the other. The second guard turned to the crystal pony with a stern look.
State your business.



Edge flies up closer to Luna, "Where are we?"

Luna floated there, looking down at the area below them which looked to be some sort of village.
This, Edge Maverick, is where I met them.

The Princess closed her eyes and held out a hoof, a gesture for the guards to hold their position, but step back to give the two ponies some space. Once they did, she reopened her eyes and looked down at the stallion.
What have you come here for?

What have you come here for?

"Well, um, I work with one of, the, uh, castle chefs at the Crystal Empire. An apprentice, I am." He seems to swallow down a lump in his throat, trying to calm down a bit. He seems much steadier, as if the princess' presence alone is enough to calm him "As I was passing through to bring some salt to my teacher, the chef, I, uhh... Well, a strange colt came out of a certain room... a room I was told not to enter. I don't know what's in the room, but this guy, he..." The stallion takes a short moment to catch his breath, the memory making him nervous.

"He was a white unicorn, with green eyes that seemed filled with contempt. But something about him seemed sweet at first.

What's more noticeable, he had a small machine strapped to one of his hooves. He aimed it up at me, and said something terrible. He said, 'Now the nightmare's real. Now Doctor Horrible is here, to make you quake with fear. To make the whole world kneel.' Just like that, it was night time. He was gone. But yet, it felt as if I was trapped in eternity before that happened... like something, gripped me."


The pony adjusted his spectacles, seeming much calmer.

I had... wondered if it were a dream, or a hallucination. But it just felt all too real. I don't know where one such as him could possibly be now. The others said I was foolish to do so, but I felt this had to be reported. Apologies if I'm wasting your time, your highness."

"Psst!" an abrupt hiss from a dark corner startles the princess of the night as a lone figure from a dark corner of her room beckons her to come foreward. "Forgive me Princess Luna, I mean you no harm." the lone figure steps foreward to reveal a pony in a polyester stealth suit with night vision goggles and a respirator over a black ski mask. After removing the mask and equipment Luna is face to face with a stallion with a Glasgow smile that scars his cheeks along with nasty cuts that implied a hardened soldier now an expert at recon and espionage.

"We need to talk!" the polyester pony pulls out a DVD containing this:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKUrwKJ_cis" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKUrwKJ_cis</a>

"As you can see," says the spy, "Princess Celestia is not what she makes herself out to be and you are the only one I can trust with this information; however, I need to know if you will help me to expose her for what she is."

The Children of the Night.
Luna pointed a hoof out toward the buildings below.
One night, I brought together children from this very village, and watched over them in their time of need.

Princess Luna listened carefully to the stallion's words, taking in all the information she could and processed it in her mind. She nodded as she understood, and looked at him, speaking in a calm voice.
It seems you were wise in coming to me. Tell me, exactly how real does this feel to you?

Luna had her eyes narrowed at the mysterious pony. If anything, not only did he seem suspicious, but he somehow sneaked inside without regard to the castle's security. She just could not accept it, and pointed a hoof forward at him. In an instant, the two guards nearby surrounded him, pointing their spears at him.

the mysterious stallion raised his hooves but his eyes still on the Princess. "I came in here unarmed your highness, as you can see i come here peacefully." the ebon clad pony said.

"You must ask yourself this... why are Cadence and Shining Armor, Twilight's brother no less, in charge of the Crystal Empire now? and why is she intrigued by Twilight's power, of whom she has made an alicorn princess? More over, as you have seen... why does she have knowledge of the dark arts? think about it!"

The nimble, scarred equine jumps on the guards spears as he makes haste for an open window and leaps forth to open two zippers and release pegasus wings as he disappears from sight.

He thinks for a moment, seemingly pondering on what to say.

"It felt real, just like me talking to you now feels real." He lets out a small sigh, collecting his thoughts. "No details seem skipped over. Nothing about it seems particularly extraordinary, besides that machine. Even his voice, I can recall clearly.

If it were a dream, something would be missing. Some event incomplete. But it's all so vivid."

Give chase! Make sure he does not get away!
Luna pointed a hoof forward, and the guards follow her direction, running out of the room.

This is something similar to what I have experienced, yet entirely different as well. It is strange, but everything can be overcome.



Edge seemed shocked, "I didn't find this in the libraries history books."

At that point, Luna could only laugh at Edge's ignorance.

Luna just had to roll her eyes at this. There were times which she didn't like to explain things unless they were important. But seeing this troubled pony, she knew she had to reassure him somehow.
Here is what I meant. You see, as the Princess of the Night, one of my duties is to overlook dreams. Yours isn't exactly a very uncommon one. However, it does have aspects I am not used to seeing.
She stepped forward toward the pony, looking at him straight in the eyes.
There are most ways to overcome something like this. One is to face it head on. Block out all fears you have on it, and stand up to it. Another is to seek guidance from someone close. I am flattered that you chose me, but I cannot fix everything.



"Your... Laughing at me? What did I say?"

Once Luna ceased laughing, she turned to Edge with a smile.
Edge Maverick, of course it would not be recorded. Nopony knows about this except for I and the children that followed me that night. They looked up to me as I watched over them and cared for them. They even gained a new respect for the moon.
She looked up at the sky, gazing at the moon overhead.

"I am not entirely convinced it was a dream, your highness. However, you seem familiar with the situation."
The pony gave a slight sigh, seeming to recollect the events again in his head.
"I will trust your judgement, princess. I will leave your audience at once."

The stallion turned and left. The princess almost swore she heard a light clicking sound as the pony turned and walked away.

Meanwhile, inside of a recently purchased house in the Crystal Empire, there was sitting a white unicorn. Wrapped around him was a white jacket, buttoned down from the front. Attatched to his front left hoof was a machine labeled as a "freeze ray". His blond, short mane was hidden from the front by a pair of safety goggles above his green eyes, which were filled with contempt, and equally so sadness.

More importantly was a sound playing out of a nearby speaker, which was playing back the entire conversation between the chef's apprentice and the princess. The words play back, in particular one small clip seems to have gone on repeat.


"One of my duties is to overlook dreams. Yours isn't exactly a very uncommon one."

Across his face slowly spread a large grin, showing well cleaned and well kept teeth. His eyes seemed to light up with an almost sadistic glee. His jaw moved strangely, as if he were forming the words in his mouth before even saying them. Then, he spoke regularly, excitedly.
"Oh, mine is a dream your world wont soon forget."

There was a split second of what looked like a kind of longing in his eyes. A longing for a lost revenge. A lost power. A lost love. But it seemed to fade as quickly as it arrived.

He looked like he's about to bolt but then collected himself.
I wanted to ask the Princess about her role in overthrowing King, king, S- ... the former ruler of the Crystal Empire. I can go away if she's not giving random audiences.

"You mean to say that you raised all of them? Like children? Wouldn't that make it my job to meet them?"

In a way, you could say that. I am not too sure how they would react to seeing a human, though their minds are young. It should not be too problematic.

As the Princess watched the pony leave, she eyed him with a rather strange look. One of the guards noticed it, and turned to face her.
Is there a problem, your Highness?
No, there is nothing to be worried about. Continue on with your duty.
The guard nodded, and resumed his position. Luna shifted her gaze up to the ceiling, deep in thought.
Though this particular meeting was indeed strange. I believe there is more to the situation of this stallion than meets the eye.

The guards looked at each other, and spoke to each other in quiet whispers. Some nods and stares later, and they looked back.
She may or may not be busy. We shall escort you inside.
The unicorn guards' horns glowed, and the door opened.

Luna pointed a hoof forward, and the guards follow her direction, running out of the room.

the guards were too late in apprehending the stranger. he had hidden a single cell phone in her room under her pillow. As she awoke the next evening, the phone shook. the incessant buzzing had caught the princesses attention for it was too impossible to ignore. as she picked up the device, she saw a solitary message that read: "I am not your enemy... perhaps my introduction was in poor taste, but this cannot wait. i fear that you and all of Equestria are in grave danger m'lady. Something is not right about Celestia. i know she is your sister and you love her dearly, but you cannot ignore the truth of what you have seen. if it is more proof you want than here it is...

MidnightSing could hear the commotion. She hated the royalty unless she could suck up to them and be one of them, but that would never happen. Even if it did- there was no doubt they would kick her out. She ranted on to a guard about how she had seen a crystal pony. The guard just rolled its eyes and walked away. Don't you dare walk away from me!  said midnight trying to stop  him but failing.  She sighed and began to put some things in her back pack. Finding a moon charm hanging on the celling she picked it up and placed it in her bags. It wasn't hers but who would know.

The crystal pony followed the guards.

They arrive in front of the chambers of the Princess. Before the guard could do anything, a light blue glow enveloped the door, and when it opened, Princess Luna had already been standing behind it.
I sensed a presence looming here. You must be it, right?

The crystal pony looks around, taken aback.

Uh, I'm certainly present, if that's what you mean, Your ... Highness?

He looks to the guards for confirmation that this is indeed Her Highness, but they're standing at attention impassively. And there's not much to mistake anyway: horn, wings, half again as tall as an ordinary pony, that must be the Princess alright.

I'm sorry if I was looming, Your Highness. Didn't mean to.
