What did she say? Part 2
Your Kidding Me Right?
Wasp in Jester Clothing!
“So tell me again why I’m here. After all, I have only now started to talk to you ponies more, so what would I be able to contribute to…wait, what did she say again?” Wasp asked to the group of five ponies plus dragon, playing with one of the bells that were attached to the hat she had on. Of course she was no jester, but they were the only clothes she had access too, at least, the only clothes she liked to wear. It took a while, but she found a dozen of the same kind that were flexible to her body, and thus were great to wear for long periods of time. It also hid her hair very well, as she didn’t like others to see it that much.
The bells were the least of her concern, as she had been called over to Fluttershy’s house moments after getting back home. It was rather odd to be called suddenly out of nowhere to one of Flake’s friends. Wasp had learned long ago that her fiancé kitty, Flake, and F

Twist, the Filly Sitter.
I Can Do Thith!
Twist, for her part, was having the same reaction as the two little ponies sitting in front of her, confused and unsure, but for her part, she was feeling nervous too. She wasn’t scared at all, unless all the stories of how little fillies really could be demons from Tarterus, it was more that she had never met the two before. They did look innocent enough though, one being a colt, the other a filly, both somewhat the same color to her, but the distinct difference being the shade of their fur. Without her own glasses, she would not have been able to tell them apart, if it wasn’t for the fact that they were at least wearing different clothes, or that their hair was really distinct between the two. Still, being a gray color was not uncommon in Ponyville, it was just odd to see another pair of twins again. Especially when she factored in the note that they were orphans that were both adopted. She heard somewhere that some parents would only adopt one child

What did she say?
What Did She Say?
Twilight Sparkle was many things in her life, ranging from being a student in a university, to becoming the student of the princess of the sun, to lending her own life lessons to that of a student of her own. She could say for certain that with every challenge or obstacle that had come her way, she had found a way to overcome it. Of course she never did it alone, as she always had her best friends by her side or in her heart to overcome any trial that came her way. Time was the only thing that became the unknown in her life now, as she never knew what the future would bestow upon her. Yet with each passing day, she found that the best way to deal with any problem was to either face it head on, or confide in her friends for help. However, today was something of a odd spectacle for her to think upon, as she had no theory to the situation that she was currently under.
At the moment, Twilight could be found in her castle, sitting on her throne with the element of mag

Babs and Twist's first fight.
The First Time is Always the Worst
By a Wasp!
Babs walked in circles at the Apple farm, very stressed and not knowing what to do. It had been an accident for sure, and she hadn’t meant any of what she had said. Oh how she wished she could just go back in time with a spell and fix everything. To bad she wasn’t a Unicorn with magic. She sighed once again, and kept walking in circles. She had to fix this somehow, and she would come up with a solution. Hopefully she could still at least be friends with her. ‘But what if she doesn’t ever want to see me again! Oh god, what if I just screwed up my only chance ever for having a happy life! Stupid Stupid babs!’
Through the window of the house, Applejack could only look on at her cousin with a frown. She had come back from town today and hadn’t said a word to anypony. In fact, she was acting different than she usually did. Babs would usually put up this tough girl act and show her pride with how she worked and

No Regrets For Any of This!
No regrets for any of this!
“I won’t be mad at all, I swear to Luna and Celestia both, if you two just come clean. I just want to know where you both were and why some of my materials are gone.” Wasp said with a stern look to the twin ponies in front of her. Her gaze would go from one to the other as she awaited an answer from either of them. She wouldn’t admit it out loud, but she was royally peeved at the two kids. They had somehow gained access to her locked laboratory, taken some of her most precise materials and ingredients, and somehow not gotten caught at all until she noticed them sneaking back in near midnight with an empty yet glowing satchel. How they even got into her lab that was supposed to be hidden from everyone but her is beyond her own thinking. But that could come later; she first had to find out what they just did with her stuff. Wasp sighed once more, looking at the twins before softening her gaze. “Soph, Anubis, I just want

It was that time yet again for the apple family, apple bucking season. Though every year the Apples would try to expand and grow more trees, they realized it meant more work for them. This year though, they realized that there may have been too many apples for them to handle on their own. Even with Applejacks friends, there were just going to be too many trees to go through in such a short time. It didn’t help that they had a deadline that was shorter than any time before. So for this bucking season, GrannySmith called over to the city and asked if “little” Babseed could come out and help for the time being. Of course, being family (and getting some pay), Babs

Your Kidding Me Right?
Wasp in Jester Clothing!

“So tell me again why I’m here. After all, I have only now started to talk to you ponies more, so what would I be able to contribute to…wait, what did she say again?” Wasp asked to the group of five ponies plus dragon, playing with one of the bells that were attached to the hat she had on. Of course she was no jester, but they were the only clothes she had access too, at least, the only clothes she liked to wear. It took a while, but she found a dozen of the same kind that were flexible to her body, and thus were great to wear for long periods of time. It also hid her hair very well, as she didn’t like others to see it that much.
The bells were the least of her concern, as she had been called over to Fluttershy’s house moments after getting back home. It was rather odd to be called suddenly out of nowhere to one of Flake’s friends. Wasp had learned long ago that her fiancé kitty, Flake, and Flutters here were friends since they were young. They both loved animals, and would often take the same classes to learn about them. Yet, when Fluttershy had requested for Wasp to come here, she specifically said to not bring Flake, as this matter only entailed her. So, like she knew she would, Wasp went, and was now waiting to be told what exactly was going on.
“…What is your attention span my dear, for I am starting to worry you have it worse than Rainbow here.” Rarity said, giggling a little while Dash gave her a death glare. Of course, Rainbowdash knew that Rarity was kidding, but that didn’t mean her pride was at stake. Dash so wanted to sonic rainboom Rarity’s hair into next week, making it hard to fix, but she knew Fluttershy wouldn’t like it, and being in the same household as her at the moment, she wanted to be on good behavior. So, with a ‘hmph’ from Dash, Rarity stopped and looked back at Wasp, adjusting her dress before addressing her once again. “Fluttershy said that you hold some answers to help Spikeywikey here find his family!” she said in a excited voice.
“Yeah! I can finally get some answers as to where I came from, and why I was left in Celestia’s hands!” Spike yelled, getting excited too. It had only been two hours since Twilight had the talk with him back at the castle. It was an emotional conversation for Twilight and himself, as he found out that Twilight considered him family now, and she didn’t want him to leave her. On the contrary, Spike would never leave Twilight, she was his big sister, but Twilight thought that the moment he found his family, he would want to leave and live with them, never wanting to see her again. She didn’t want to accept that, and Spike learned what she thought of him now, and it was very heart warming to know. “I never knew about my past Miss Wasp” Spike said, focusing back on the current. “And I can’t wait to learn more!”
Wasp, for her part, looked at Spike with glazed eyes. Her own past was not something glorious, but she understood the want to know your own past. After all the stuff that had happened three months ago, with her finally getting fixed and getting rid of the mutations that caused her so much pain and now living a normal life, she wanted to remember the good times. Yet it was still hard to think that someone would want to know what happened to them. “I guess…” Wasp said, not meaning to sound disinterested, and quickly fixing her tone. “I mean, I will try to help, but I still don’t know what I could do. Also, please just call me Wasp. You don’t need to call me Miss. By Luna’s horn, if we become good friends, I might even tell you my real name from old.” She continued, grinning a bit as Spike looked at her as if she had made a challenge. After all, his sister was the Princess of Friendship.
“Now don’t ya go an be making distractions. We got ta focus here on this here story!” Applejack said, interrupting Spike before he could go any further. Spike, grumbling about making another friend besides Thorax, went and sat down. “Now,” AJ started again, looking at Fluttershy as she too sat down, “Why don’tcha go an explain what you know there sugarcube!”
“Well..” Fluttershy began, getting back to being comfortable with everyone. She looked specifically at Spike, her eyes gleaming with fascination of the information she had picked up. “If you remember correctly, I went out of town a month ago by Celestia’s request. The princess had found an old archive about different types of animals that used to exist but are now extinct! Oh, it was so fascinating, seeing all the cute and cuddly creatures that used to be here in Equestria! There was even this little bird that couldn’t fly, but it would walk on land! The poor dear must have been”
“Fluttershy, I don’t want to make it sound rude but..” Rarity began, trying to emphasize that she was getting off track. She didn’t want to hurt the Mare’s feelings, but she was a sensitive one. Luckily, or unluckily depending on how you viewed it, Pinkie Pie said it for her.
“GET ON WITH THE STORY! The suspense is killing me! What did you find out! Is Spike secretly a butler that has the power of magical strings? Is he a fairy? Is he secretly a changeling? Is he voiced by some human that exists in a parallel world where we are actually a kids show and we can’t do anything bad when the secret camera is on us because we can’t be ourselves anymore and thus or subject to the script that they write for their world! Is he an animatronics? Is he mmphmmphm” Rainbow Dash was quick to catch the jumping pink fluff ball that was beaming with every question she asked. Dash quickly covered Pinkie’s mouth and shushed her. She only nodded that she would remain quiet.
“I’m…Sorry. I ugh…” Fluttershy Started again, breathing in and out before she recollected herself. “Ahem, as I was saying, Princess Celestia had found an old archive in some location that she did not want me to know about, and through it, I found out about the animals of the past. Since there were so many books and photos to go through, I couldn’t bring them home by myself, so I had to stay there for a bit to do research. While going through the books, I came across what I thought was an old dusty tome.” Smiling, Fluttershy used grabbed a book from behind her, making sure to carefully hold it up in front of the other ponies. The book itself was ancient by looks, but seemed to be held together with some sort of spell that allowed it to not get damaged further. There were also strange markings that no pony or dragon in the room had ever seen before.
Putting the book on her lap, Fluttershy opened it, looking down and turning pages slowly as if something were to tear if she were handling it to rough. “I know it doesn’t seem like much, at least I didn’t think so when I started reading it, as the book turned out to be a dairy. What was written inside of it just talked about the owners life when she started writing it to an unknown point in time.” Fluttershy suddenly stopped on a certain page and her smile went smaller then what it was before. “It was then that I hit a certain section of the dairy that I read some interesting information.” She suddenly stopped talking, merely looking down at the book and reading the lines to herself, getting trapped in the words that were weaved.
“Well, what did it say then Fluttershy?” Dash asked, getting impatient with how long it took her to speak. Sure, she may have wanted to just grab the book and read it out loud herself, but that would involve her touching Fluttershy…and...The blush that appeared suddenly was only missed by Spike, who was on the edge of his seat waiting to hear from Fluttershy, Pinkie, who had also been in the same situation as Spike, and Wasp, who apparently was looking as if she was about to fall asleep. The other two mares, side Shy, caught the sight and kept the information for later to either tease or use.
Looking up from the book, Fluttershy looked at Spike directly, putting out everyone else in the room. “The writer mentions meeting up with someone on some random day, and that she is going to meet up with her again about some important ‘object’ that she is going to be given in secret. She apparently didn’t know what she was going to get or anything, but spoke about how she had at least made a new friend.” Turning the page, Fluttershy’s smile began to fade even more. “The next date entry speaks about another meeting of her new friend and the friend’s family, and how something had gone terribly wrong. She had apparently lost her new friend. The page is shorter than the others, as she mentions the pain of never having any friends that could stick around her or understand her. It seems that the owner didn’t write for a while, as it took some time for her to even consider writing about what had happened. Some parts are old and smudged out, but apparently she says that…”

Data: October XX XXXXX
Location: Equestria. Still unknown where I am.
Dairy, Thought I would never write again, but it turns out that I just can’t escape what pain I have just felt. Though I have met many ponies and other creatures, she was one of the first friends I have ever had. XXXX had asked me after spending many times together to meet up with her and meet her whole family. It was odd as she only ever spoke about them when she had argued or been having a great hunt. What could it had been that she wanted me to meet them for? I dare not know yet. But I fear I will never know now. Our hunts that we both went on our own will now be forever gone.. When I had met her, I was apparently followed by some wizard, and I was too excited to even sense his magic tracking me. XXXX, when I met up with her, sensed him though, and tried to get us both to safety, but it was still for naught. She…XXXX….and her XXXXXX…..but now…XXXXXXXXX……
Yet now, I am alone, as they are gone. They were sent…somewhere. I do not even know what I could do to try and find them. Yet I know that I can’t do anything about it, I still wish there was some way to save them from their fate. If I ever saw him again though, I would be sure to……And I wouldn’t even stop there. Now though, comes the trivial part. XXXX had wanted help in hiding the egg. I was still surprised she trusted me with such an act, even when she was being sent away. She told me to go and hide it again, and use the spell she taught me to put it in a stasis spell. She said somehow she would find her baby, and be reunited.
So, under my friend’s wish, I retrieved the purple egg. I put the spell on it, and hid it in the dragons den, somewhere I knew that she would try to hide it. Though he was not fully dragon, he would be surely more dragon then her. So it would be fitting that perhaps a dragon would keep it safe? I do not know.
I left it there, under the protection in that cave……
*More cutting buzz noises*
“…And then it stopped there. For some reason, she never wrote it the book again. But the location was found, and it was Celestia that found the egg. That egg…it was your’s Spike!” Fluttershy finished, both sad and happy after reading the page entry. She almost cried at points, being so emotional, as did some of the other mares in the room. Spike, for his part, was only looking at the ground, staring in silence and deep in thought. “I know…that it must be hard to digest this new information, but…” Suddenly, Fluttershy put the book down next to her walked up to him and gave a caring hug, that was shortly followed by everypony else in the room. However, Wasp was still sitting down, eyeing the book intently.
“So…how did…who…Did it ever say who she was?” Spike asked, looking at her with tears in his eyes. He felt so happy to know that his mom had tried to do everything she could to save him, but also terrible that he may have lost all chances of being with his mother. He was trying to be strong though, and it was so hard when everypony was giving such comfort and love.
“That’s the thing I don’t know…” Fluttershy said sadly, causing spike to almost burst into tears. “But…I do know who wrote the dairy!” She said, causing Spike to look up suddenly with tears slowly going down his face.
“Who wrote it then?”  Rarity asked, curious and wanting her little Spikey Wikey to stop crying. He was adorable still yes, but she felt like he was a brother to her now, and wanted to see him happy and not like this.
“I…I wrote that…so long ago…” A voice said suddenly, causing everypony and Spike to turn and stare at Wasp. She stood up slowly, moving over to the book, and picking it up as if it was a relic. Wasp turned it over, feeling every nook and corner of the book, and running her fingers over the design that was made on it. Nostalgia was going threw her mind as memories were rushing through her body, tears of her own falling down her glossy eyes. She couldn’t believe that she had forgotten all the words…the tales she had written so long ago in days of old. When Luna was still a fearful princess that could come back any night, and the land were more dangerous due to what could be lurking in the dark. “That…was so long ago…I forgot all about it…She…She was such a good friend…”
“Yup, Wasp wrote the dairy. When I spoke to Celestia about it, we dug deeper into the pages, translating parts that were hard to make out, and getting whatever information we could. We soon found out that the original owner was indeed Wasp, and that she had apparently hidden your egg Spike.” Fluttershy added, letting go of Spike now and sitting back down to look at what would now happen.
“Whoa Whoa Whoa, you’re kidding me right? That would mean your like….over 800 years old or something, how can you even still be alive?!?” Rainbow dash yelled, accusing her that the fact she just said was false. “I mean dude, that’s not call to joke about! Yeah sure, we helped you out and you were supposedly asleep for a long time, but that LONG!”
“I…Assure you that it is quite true. I…I have been through so much…but that was the first instance of my own capture…I…” Wasp was quiet, opening the book and seeking through her own words. Tears were streaming down her own eyes as she remembered every word she ever wrote, every single letter she pushed out of her own ink. It was the past she wished to forget, but the memories she kept in her heart wished to be resurfaced in the future present. “It…all makes sense now how things are playing out…” She whispered to herself, realizing now why Sunset Shimmer had taken to tutoring Anubis and Sophistara when Wasp couldn’t find any teacher to do so. It was difficult to look someone in the eye when your own self was not what it was supposed to be, even though now she was fixed, others still had a bad image of her. Yet Sunset of all mares pushed past that for whatever reason and did it for her when she didn’t know why. Now…Now she remembered, and it all made sense.
“Wait…so if you wrote the dairy…then…” Pinkie started, leading on to what Wasp would have known. “YOU KNOW WHO SPIKE’S MOM WAS! THIS CALLS FOR A *BAM*” was all that was said before Dash, again, had to contain the excitement of the pink mare. It was not easy to do, but she felt it was her job now.
“Pinkie! You need to stop yelling! It’s so not cool!” Dash said, looking at Fluttershy and seeing her smile for making such noise go away. Rainbow knew that the animals in Fluttershy’s cottage didn’t like the noises, so she helped out, and seeing that smile was worth it!
“Yea…I do know who she was…is actually. For she is still around you know.” Wasp said, smiling brightly. She had come to the sudden realization that she had been seeing her friend many times now, but only now she would meet her with memories resurfaced. She would be able to say hi like they used to do, and catch up with all the old times. Yet, she was sad her friend didn’t approach her sooner, seeing that she could have helped, but saw through logic that it was perhaps not the best time during recovery.
“So….So” Spike started, walking over to Wasp and grabbing her sleeve. This brought Wasp’s attention from the book to the little dragons eyes. “Who was…is she? Where..Where can I find her?” Spike couldn’t believe his own words, as it seemed like he would never find out where he came from, but perhaps now he could. He could find the answers he always sought, and become more with his heritage. He could introduce an old but new member of the family into the family again, with his new family that he had shared many times with.
“Are you sure you want to know?”  Wasp questioned, looking into the eyes of the dragon more closely, only to see the determination to find out who she was. It was all that she needed to see for her to continue, even if the dragon stood silent. “Alright…your mother’s name is…”

*changing scene bug noises because she can’t afford proper scene transitions!*
“ACHOO” sneezed the female, covering her mouth and shaking off whatever germs she might have had on her hand away. She then turned around and glared at the other two females standing behind her, one giggling and the other grinning at her. “You two shut up okay! I’m not sick, someone’s talking about me!” she turned back forward, readjusting her posture. She may have been naked, but she was no slouch.
“Are you sure Aria? It seems that you might be getting your third cold every. Will Sonata beat you in terms of being healthier than you?” Asagio said, teasing her sister while looking forward still to not get in trouble. She didn’t mind getting in trouble though, as she knew Sunset was looking at her. It made her grin more.
“HAHA! I bet you need some medicine! You should eat more meat to get better!” Sonata said, laughing and moving around more than she should have. It was then that a ball of paper flew out and hit her head, making her turn to a green female. “Hey!”
“Hey is right! You three stand still, I still have sketches to do, and you three are the only models I have on standby at the moment! So stay still! Kero kero!” Said a frog, who went back to drawing the three hippocampus. Frog had been wanting to draw and practice more body structures, but needed a challenge, so went to Sunset to ‘borrow’ the three sisters.  So, after being bribed-, I mean well conversed to, Sunset got the three to model. Although, Sunset did enjoy the view, as she was mentally taking everything to a photographic memory she hoped to keep forever on Adagio.
“Anyways” Sunset started, still looking at that orange haired beauty. She almost forgot again what she was about to say, but stayed focus enough to talk. “You three continue this up, and then your free. Remember our…’deal’. Now stand still and be quiet!”
Though the matter had passed, and the teasing stopped, Aria couldn’t help but feel as if something big was about to happen, and she couldn’t help but feel it was going to be life changing.
What did she say? Part 2
So, I have this mini fan headcannon, (fancannon?) that the two are related by some means that I like to think would go like this! Obviously there is still some mystery behind it, but I like to think that this is the start of something that I hope someone could pick up on! Maybe not though. Still, my writing needs more practice and requires more stories! 
*happy bug noises* 
So, besides that, I needed to get this and another story out tonight, so Ill be up for a while! w00t! *sleep bug noises* 
I Can Do Thith!


Twist, for her part, was having the same reaction as the two little ponies sitting in front of her, confused and unsure, but for her part, she was feeling nervous too. She wasn’t scared at all, unless all the stories of how little fillies really could be demons from Tarterus, it was more that she had never met the two before. They did look innocent enough though, one being a colt, the other a filly, both somewhat the same color to her, but the distinct difference being the shade of their fur. Without her own glasses, she would not have been able to tell them apart, if it wasn’t for the fact that they were at least wearing different clothes, or that their hair was really distinct between the two. Still, being a gray color was not uncommon in Ponyville, it was just odd to see another pair of twins again. Especially when she factored in the note that they were orphans that were both adopted. She heard somewhere that some parents would only adopt one child thinking that if they were to adopt both it would be to much of a hassle. Would it though? Twist would most likely not know at the time.
For now, the better question was what to do now. Since their parents left, they had all kind of just been sitting in the living room. A living room in a ‘house’ that, while not a bad living space, was in a more uncommon area that she had not even expected. Their home was located underground, in the old emergency shelter beneath the barn. Apparently, according to Babs, her cousins had at first made it to hide or be safe from a lot of the danger that came around in Ponyville. Since the elements of harmony came to be now, she thought it was safe enough to rent it to the new family that had arrived about a year and a half ago. Why she had not ever seen them around? Twist would never know, not wanting to invade in privacy or if they had a reason to do so.
Either way, she had gotten a letter from the parents yesterday, asking if she would be able to babysit for the next week. Apparently they were going on some trip with Spike and Princess Twilight’s Assitant, Starlight Glimmer. She didn’t need to have the details, not that they specifically told her anyways. She just found it odd that they would one, choose to leave the kids here, and two, choose her to babysit. Twist would have to ask them at a later date, for now, the two ponies were still staring up at here, waiting patiently.
“Tho…what are your nameth?” Twist asked, adjusting her glasses. She wanted to let them introduce themselves, so she could get some insight on who they were. She was told earlier, but this was her first time being a fillysitter, and she wanted to make sure they knew she was nice. The only thing she was really worried about was if they wouldn’t listen to her.
“I’m Sophistara! I like to be called Soph though!” Said the young filly pointed to herself and smiled brightly. She had fur that was gray, but a lighter tone than the one sitting next to her. Twist smiled back at her, analyzing her carefully. She appeared to have her hair in a twin set of long ponytails, which would almost drag on the ground if it had not been put in by hair ties. She seemed to be so bright and full of energy, both good and bad for her. Good, because that meant the filly would be nice and happy, bad because she would most likely be full of energy. As she was done taking quick mental notes, she turned her head to the colt. He was the same gray, just a darker tone, and seemed to just have his hair going wild, mostly spiky, but going wherever it wanted it to be. Did he not care to comb it or something? She would have to find out later. For now, she waited for him to introduce himself.
The silence that grew in the air turned the moment awkward for Twist, as she continued to wait. She was not used to this kind of…situation were somepony would not at least introduce themselves. Usually, everypony in Ponyville was nice enough to say their name or greet each other. Yet he was just staring at her with eyes big and open. Was he perhaps a mute colt? It is rare for such a thing to be seen, in Twist’s eyes, as she had never encountered a mute pony before. She was unsure on how to approach the situation. She was about to voice a question when Soph leaned into her line of view and pointed towards the colt in question.
“This is Anubis, and don’t take it as an insult that he didn’t say his name. He doesn’t like to talk a whole lot, because he’s kinda shy. He likes to think more than speak, so I love to do the talking for the both of us!” Soph exclaimed. The look on the fillies face told all that she was proud to be the colts sister, as proven more by the smile that grew on Anubis’s face himself. Twist looked at the both of them with a smile of her own, thinking of how nice it was to grow up with a sibling that cared for you. She wished that she had grown up with a sister or brother, as it would have made the abuse she had to undergo a lot easier…or nonexistent at all. She was not at all going to complain though, as she now had a sister in the form of Dinky, when her mother and Derpy’s mother got married. It was nice now to have a sibling to look after you when you were at home, or to talk to when nopony else was around to do so. It was hard only having your mom being the one to talk to about everything, especially when she herself was busy trying to support Twist and make sure everything would be alright for her.
Twist’s thoughts were cut off when she saw that Anubis was pointing at her now. She was confused by such an action and merely tilted her head in the process of what he could be wanting. There was nothing behind her besides a door, and even then, it was to a closet.
“He trying to ask your name! Which you havn’t even told us yet! I mean sure, Mom and Mum told us, but you havn’t yet! I heard that’s very rude to do!” Soph said for her brother, making it dawn on Twist that she had been so collected in her thoughts that she had not even introduced herself. Luna, she should have read a filly sitting book or something to figure out how this actually went before she did this for the first time. That or she should pay a little more attention to things.
“I’m Thorry, that’th my bad. My name ith Twith” she said through her lisp. It aggravated her to no end how she tried to speak normally, and how because of her speech impediment, she was made fun of.
“I thought your name was Twist? Not Twith!” Soph questioned, leaning towards the mare.
“It ith,” Twist began, looking at the filly in question. “I have what you call a lithp.”
“A what?” Soph stared at the mare with confusion. She had never heard of such a thing before, or at least never heard of someone having such an issue. “Is it like being sick or something? I remember once I had a cold and had talked funny till I got all better!” The filly did shiver actions and mimicked being sick to show what she was meaning.
“No. No. Nothing like that. It juth meanth thath I have a hard time thpeaking.” Twist answered, only to be rewarded with a more confused filly.
“I…I don’t get it. You talk funny still. Like I know half what your saying, but the other half isn’t there in my head.” The filly, for her part, was really trying to understand what exactly was going on. She just didn’t quite get it with how her brain was processing it.
“It means she can’t speak normally like we do because of something that she was born with. A disability, if you will. Or in layman’s terms, she can’t speak without making funny sounds. By the way, she said it’s called a lisp.” A quiet voice said suddenly. It shocked Twist, as she looked around for where it could have come from. Her answer was received when she say Soph go and pounce Anubis to the ground.
“Thanks bro! You could have said it sooner though! My head was starting to hurt! To many big words!” Soph exclaimed, laughing while enjoying her brothers despair of being, once again, pounced by his sister. Twist, for her part, was surprised that someone their age could even understand what it meant. The twins had to at least be six, maybe seven. But even then, this colt just said words that even she wouldn’t know about by his age.
“Mmph!” was the only response given by Anubis, as he shoved his sister off of her and sat back down facing Twist. He only had a curious look on his face now, as if trying to read her.
“That wath ethplained perfectly. Good Job! How did you know that?” Twist asked. The colt, for his part, looked away after being complimented. It was cute, and Twist wanted to just squeal at how he was now getting embarrassed. When he did not answer though, she turned towards Soph for the answer.
“He likes to read a lot, and ever since we started taking lessons from Sunset, he likes to stay after and learn a lot more. I don’t though, I learn the basics and then go for freedom!” The response was not one she was expecting. Being taught by someone of Sunset Shimmer’s level was amazing, and for these two to even be considered for it, well, that was a whole different level.
“How did you two get Sthuthet to be your teacther?”
“I have no clue! When we were adopted, Mom went and talked to her, and now we are being teached!” The little fillies voice had no care in the world it seemed, only that she was happy. It made Twist smile, for she knew of another pony that was so full of energy like her, that baker pony, Pinkie pie. She was a hit with the whole town, and threw the biggest parties. “Can we eat by the way? I’m starving! I might just die! Oh my Celestia! What if I died from lack of food! Who would pounce ponies then!?” Soph, as Twist would learn fast, liked to over dramatize a lot of things. The filly went on to even make more drama by having actions showing she was dead. This was only solved by Anubis getting up, and poking her with a stick that, in Twist’s memory, came from no where. “Stop that! Ill Super pounce you!”
“Ill make thure you two eat. Justh give me a thecond!” The mare then went for the kitchen, finding a note on the fridge that detailed pre-made food. It was odd, not the pre-made meals being made for the three, but the amount of food that had been premade. There was more than enough to feed an army in the fridge and cabinet! Still, there were some meals on the note that, apparently by Wasp, said that she could have some fun cooking, as long as she didn’t blow the kitchen up of course. She went to work, wanting to create a meal that the two little ponies would enjoy, and hoped that she would not mess it up. She wanted to learn how to cook, but she was still not getting the hang of certain things. One of those was timing. It would be her luck that sometimes she would either burn something, or not let something cook long enough, resulting in somepony getting sick. She didn’t want that though, she wanted to be a cook. For the future! For when…If…She and Babs…
The blush that appeared on Twist’s face made her snout become the same color as her hair. She shook her thoughts away, and after readjusting her glasses, went to work. It took the better part of the hour, finding were pots and pans were, ingredients that needed to be chopped, and making sure to follow the recipe she had found to the tablespoon. The recipe itself was simple, but it was the ingredients that made it more…difficult for Twist to manage. The food she was attempting to make was a simple pasta dish, but it involved using herbs and other items that she had never even heard of. It was even harder when she couldn’t read some of the writing of whoever put the labels on the bottles; which after looking further into turned out to be Wasp’s writing just more lazily.
When Twist had finished the actual dish, she turned around and saw the mess she had made, leaving her with a sheepish grin. She was sure to be cleaning this up for the best part of the next hour after dinner, but if she had done this right, it would be worth it. Calling the twins to the kitchen was no problem, as they had been running around with little plastic swords in their hands, fighting each other as pirates or ninjas. It was hard to tell with one being quieter than the other. She had finished setting the table when the two had cleaned up, making sure to wash their hands like their Mum told them to do always.
“I hope you two like it! I thaw your mother’ths recipe and tried to follow it to the note.” The mare said to the twins. They only stared at her, curious by what she meant by that, as everything they usually ate tasted great here.
“How could you mess it up? It’s easy to do I’m sure!” Soph said, like there was nothing to it. This made Twist feel nervous, as if something was wrong with it, they would know, and she only hoped that they did like it.
“I’m thure it will be fine. Letths dig in!” Twist only said this as reassurance to herself. She was sure it would be fine. With a nod as her only response from the other two, the three took their forks and dug in….only for the two twins to spit it out while she herself tried to mange it.
“UGH! This taste so awfu-“ Soph started, only to be shut up by her brother, who was trying to get the taste of whatever he just ate out of his mouth. The look on his face told her that he too wanted to voice that opinion, but she saw that other look that said not to do so.
“I…I…” Twist for her part didn’t know what to think, as she was for sure that she had followed the recipe! How could she have messed it up this badly! Sure she wasn’t used to making such a dish with all the ingredients that Wasp put on there, but how could this have happen. She looked at the twins who had only started to stare at her, and Twist could only look away, feeling like a failure.
“So…what are we going to eat now?” Soph stated, quieter than her normal tone and obviously note wanting to say anything else. Twist, for her part said nothing, only standing up and removing the dishes from the table. She then got a premade meal from the fridge and gave it to the twins, who ate it happily, while she went and cleaned up all of her mess. She would have eaten with them, but all of a sudden Twist just did not have an appetite.
Her only thoughts now resulted on the present and past failures she has ever had. Going from not being able to make good friends, to trying so hard to pass certain classes or activities, to even just trying to fit in with anyone. How could someone like her even exist in such a world as this? She failed so many times in her life, and yet couldn’t count the number of times she felt proud of herself. Half way through a dish, Twist turned around, seeing that Anubis and Soph were gone, and that she was half way through the dishes. This made her only sigh, as she realized they wouldn’t want to trust her with such activities without screwing it up. Who was to say she wouldn’t screw up helping them if they got hurt, or helping them to bed, or anything! This was only the first day, her first time trying something new, and she couldn’t even handle it. She had let the twins down…their parents down…Babs down…and most certainly her own family down. Perhaps she should just call Wasp and Flake to come back, or look for someone more qualified to do so.
She knew that she was probably overdoing it with her own thoughts, but after trying so many times, she just felt like life was not going anywhere lately. Sure, this job was recommended by Babs herself, which made Twist feel good inside, but she mainly took the job to get some extra bits to go see Babs. It was difficult to be in a long term relationship, and it hurt her so much knowing that her marefriend was so far away. She missed the warmth that Babs gave to her, either from the protection she felt within her arms, or the kind gentle movements she made on her and only her. Yes, her Mom and new additions to the family gave her love and care, but it was obviously a different love then what Babs gave. It left her still a little empty inside, and because of how hard she tried to do everything right now, or to get along with others, it just hurt with all the fails that kept happening. With each one adding up and digging a deeper hole in her self-esteem.
It was when Twist finished cleaning the last dish and part of the mess from dinner that she noticed the twins had been super quiet. It was an odd behavior, knowing that earlier before dinner they had been really excited and playful. Perhaps they fell asleep, or passed out somewhere inside? She went to investigate, and then afterwards she would think about what to do for the next of the week.
“Soph? Anubis? Are you two okay? Where are you two?” she asked, going room to room. The home wasn’t that big or huge, but many doors seemed to line the place. She made sure not to venture into the rooms that she was told not to go into, but she would knock on each one to make sure they had not ventured into one of them. “Where are you two…They…They didn’t leave did they?” panic quickly set in as each word was said, and Twist hastened her pace in the search. It wasn’t until she returned to the kitchen that she heard a small noise coming from underneath the table. “What are you two..”
Twist had began to speak when she suddenly stopped and went silent. Apparently Anubis and Sophistara had both hidden under the table while she was cleaning and in thought, and fell asleep while doing whatever they were doing. It was cute, to see in dreamland. Twist was happy she found them, and let the breath she had been holding go. She would have to move them and put them to bed without waking either of them. Twist wasn’t the strongest mare, but she believed that the two were light enough to move both of them at the same time. So she moved some of the chairs, and got them up in her arms. Carrying them to their room was not the hard part of the ordeal, getting them to stop hugging her while they slept was the worst. She had tried to put them on the bed, but found both were tightly gripped to her arms, and wouldn’t let go. Sighing, she decided to wake them up slowly.
“Soph…Anubis…You two need to let go.” Twist whispered. The two only seemed to tighten their grip on her, while shifting sleepily awake.
“Twist?” Both mumbled, looking at her.
“Yea, you two theemed to pasth out, and ith bed time now.” The mare sat both of them down on Soph’s bed, holding the two because they wouldn’t let go still. “What were you two doing down there?”
“We..we were watching…you” Soph started mumbling. She rubbed her eyes to get more awake, but couldn’t fight off the yawn that came. “We…we were worried..”
“You two were worried, about what?” Twist only kept looking at the two in more confusion, what could have kept them like this?
“You…we didn’t want you to go away. You…” Anubis started, surprising Twist with his voice. “You looked so sad…we didn’t want you to go…you seem fun…and nice..” This was the statement that caused Twist to go wide eye, and only stare in shock at the two. She let them go and sat them in front of her, so she could get a good look at them.
“What…what are you two talking about? What..” Twist couldn’t think properly, what were they getting at, what could they be thinking.
“We saw you crying and looking so depressed when we came back to apologize about the food. It wasn’t so terrible, but we just didn’t like it was all. Mumma Wasp cooks weird, so it was nothing to be sad about.” Soph started, giving Twist a big hug to the silent Twist.
“We also don’t want you to go away, as we don’t meet that many people who just want to make us happy, versus just trying to keep our mum and mom happy. A lot of other people only see us as a way to get to them, and don’t see us. Your such a nice Pony, and we want you to be our friend!” Anubis continued Soph’s statement, and hugged her too. The both looked up though, and got scared for a second at what they saw now. “Twist..Why are you crying? Did we say something-
“You..You two are the besth!” Twist scared the two greatly but calmed them down as she hugged them tightly with tears in her eyes. It felt so good to her, to know that they cared enough to make sure that she was okay, and that they wanted to be her friend. Even after what seemed like a terrible moment, she felt so happy now. “Im sthorry for making you worry. I won’t be leaving, and we will be friendths”
They were silent for the rest of the night, and actually passed out on Sophs bed. Twist lay against the pillow, with one filly cuddling her left side, and the other colt cuddling her right. Of course, Twist was way too big for the bed, and was dangling off, but for this, she would not trade it for the world.

It was at the end of the week when Wasp and Flake returned, opening the door and being greeted by Twist. They were confused, as they would normally be greeted by a pouncing Soph, and then a smiling Anubis.
“Hey Twist, were back, how did it go? Where are the twins? Did they give any problems?” Wasp and Flake said. They only gained a confused expression when Twist made a big smile to the two.
“They were…perfect little angelths!” Twist exclaimed. “They are athleep at the moment, and are had a great week. They will be happy to thee you too.” This statement caught them a little by surprise, as everyone else that had every watched them would have complained or left earlier, calling them and making them come back. So of course, Wasp and Flake had been worried before they came back, but were now happy.
“That’s wonderful Twist. Thanks so much again, we can’t thank you enough. I will be sure to give you extra bits.” Started Wasp, digging for a bag, and then giving her a bigger bag then she thought she would get. The giddy happy Twist excitingly accepted it and thanked them, already seeing that it was enough to get a train ticket to go see Babs or for her to come see her. “By the by, did anything happen? I didn’t think anything would go wrong, but…Let’s just say it is hard to find a good fillysitter around here.” The way Wasp asked it wasn’t meant to be said as an insult, but she had a suspicion. After so many hours of trying to not kill certain ponies, it was a relief to finally find somepony who knew what they were doing, and that Anubis and Sophistara liked. Of course Flake would have had Setsuna look after them, but Flake had sent her on a vacation, and Wasp knew Setsuna needed one after working herself to death and taking her duty as bodyguard to seriously. Besides, they were her kids, and she wanted them to be happy always. Besides, Wasp knew Flake would kill her if something did happen.
“Nope, nothing bad happened at all.” Twist started, after being thanked with a hug again from Flake, who went to go check on the kids. “It wath odd though…” she continued, being led to the door by Wasp, who now gave Twist a questioning look.
“What was odd Twist?” The buzzing bug asked, wondering what could have come up.
“You didn’t thay that Soph waths a unicorn, or that Anubis waths part pegasthus. It theemed odd for twinths to be born like that. Havn’t heard a cathse like that thince the Cakeths.” Twist commented, giving a puzzled look to Wasp. “They are thure good at hiding it, you have to look hard for the horn or wingths underneath.” Wasp only stared at her blankly though, as if Twist had grown another head and had gone crazy.
“Twist…What are you talking about…they are normal ponies…”
Twist, the Filly Sitter.
*Tired Bug Noises*
  You have no idea how many times I kept rewriting the beginning of this and kept going back and deleting the whole thing after not liking it! Ugh, this took so long for me each day between work or other things!

This was also an experiment for myself to try and work on Lisp writing. I never quite understood how to do so, but I just want to practice different ways or find a way that satisfies me or gets me going. I know that I could imply the lisp, but I'm to determined to not do so. So to whoever reads this, any tips or suggestions would be nice, along with where to fix it. As I wouldn't mind doing that. 

So hey, if you like this piece, let me know, and please tell me things you like or think should be improved. Heck, I even like opinions as I expand my little world. So thanks for that stuff! 
What Did She Say?


Twilight Sparkle was many things in her life, ranging from being a student in a university, to becoming the student of the princess of the sun, to lending her own life lessons to that of a student of her own. She could say for certain that with every challenge or obstacle that had come her way, she had found a way to overcome it. Of course she never did it alone, as she always had her best friends by her side or in her heart to overcome any trial that came her way. Time was the only thing that became the unknown in her life now, as she never knew what the future would bestow upon her. Yet with each passing day, she found that the best way to deal with any problem was to either face it head on, or confide in her friends for help. However, today was something of a odd spectacle for her to think upon, as she had no theory to the situation that she was currently under.

At the moment, Twilight could be found in her castle, sitting on her throne with the element of magic above her head. She had been there for the best part of the day, staring off into space with the current predicament in mind. It had only been this morning when Fluttershy had come over to the castle, asking to have a private conversation with her. Twilight, not thinking much of it, had went along to the map room and asked her what had been on her mind. The conversation that had followed afterward had not been one she had ever in her life been expecting. It had completely caught her off guard, and as the conversation went on and on, she was left quieter and quieter, almost to the level of a shy Fluttershy. It was not until Fluttershy had asked Twilight the question of the year that she had slapped her mouth shut and stared at her.

She hadn’t meant to be rude or anything at that point, but the only thing she could do when presented with such a topic, let alone with the ending question, was silently stand up, escort Fluttershy outside, and bid her farewell. She had then went back inside, and sat on the chair since then, going over the conversation again and again. There were points where she questioned if she had been a little to rude on her friends departure, but she would immediately go back to the end of it and become lost in thought once again. Anypony that had knocked or requested her presence were met with either the silent treatment, or become ignored to the point where they would leave. The only ones that tried to get anything out of her so far and had little luck were her best friends. The only thing she would say to them was “I just don’t know where I stand at this moment.”

It had confused them greatly, and when her friends would ask each-other if they had any knowledge on the subject, they would only get so far. The evidence that four ponies, consisting of Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie, could come up with was that it had something to do with their friend Fluttershy. Yet when they tried to question her on the matter, she would also clam up, and go shy silent mode. It was an odd occurrence, since they had become so close, but they could not figure out what to do. They knew that Starlight would not be able to help at the moment, as she was currently out visiting some friends of hers’ that she had met recently. Some cat or wasp, they were not sure. Either way, they were now trying to think of what to do, and how to resolve whatever was going on between Twilight and Fluttershy.

Brainstorming what the problem could have been between the four had gotten them nowhere. At first, Dash suggested that Fluttershy was having some sort of personal problem that needed Twilight specifically to fix, and Twilight didn’t want to help her. It was absurd of course, and quickly dismissed. Rarity spoke of Fluttershy openly admitting a secret love for Twilight, but was denied her glory of an answer when AJ spoke of Twilight dating Trixie, and though it was a secret relationship, Fluttershy was the one who got the two together, so it seemed unlikely. Pinkie Pie thought that there was some secret party going on, and that Twilight was trying to make it so grand that she blew her own mind up in the process. Of course she knew it wasn’t true, but Pinkie couldn’t help but laugh at the idea of it, and got a laugh out of the other three.

Applejack could not for the life of her think of anything. Being honest, she did not have anything that would remotely be possible, and without any other evidence to go on, the four felt that their friends were going to be like this until either one of the two came to them, or it solved itself. They didn’t care what the problem could be, they just wanted to help their friends fix this problem, and get back to being happy and hanging out together. The only idea that sounded good to the four of them was to ask Spike, but he was currently off with Starlight, as she wanted to have someone with her. The two were becoming friends, and they could relate to each other a lot. It seemed like a brother sister relationship at this point, but it was still a friendship that the mane six had come to enjoy.

It had been three days of Twilight giving the silent stare treatment, and Fluttershy going max shy mode, that the four friends were starting to go insane. They were about to grab the two ponies by their hooves and drag them together to find out what was really going on, when Spike and Starlight had come back. The four friends had finally had a sigh of relief, as they felt that if anyone had a chance to get something out of Twilight, it was Spike. After all, the two had been together longer than they had been with her. They had gotten to the castle when Spike and Starlight had arrived, and explained the current situation in detail to the two. It was the only hope they had in getting everything back to normal. While Starlight felt that she would not be able to reach Twilight, Spike considered the options he had and decided he would try to do something about it.

It was with all this in mind that Spike came upon Twilight, still sitting still in her chair, looking lost in thought. It worried him, as he questioned if she had even gotten up at all to stretch or event eat. Had she slept at all? The list of questions kept going on and on in his mind, and he carefully approached the alicorn with care. If this didn’t work out, then he knew that things would get ugly, and force would be used to get Twilight or Fluttershy to talk, and he knew that none of his friends wanted that on the two.

“Hey Twilight!” Spike said, his voice filled with energy as he tried to get her attention. She only turned her head to him, and seemed to look even deeper in thought as she stared at him closely. He swallowed his spit in response, becoming uneasy in the situation and wanting to suddenly go away. “Me and Starlight just got back from that camping trip with those two new residents that you wanted us to check out.” He started, hoping to get her to talk about the ‘quest’ that the two had been sent on. It had no response. “Turns out the two are actually pretty cool, just the Wasp having some genetic problem or something. They are nice though. I will tell you about it later….Did anything happen while we were gone?” He asked, hoping to start the probing into the problem.

Twilight only kept staring at him. It was starting to get very creepy on the little dragon, as he could see that she was now intensely staring at him as if he was the center of a theater and the spot light was only on him. Spike had only ever seen her like this twice in his life, and it meant that she was actually presented a problem that even she could not come to terms with. It was either something very personal to her that she could not confide in anyone with, preventing her from getting answers, or something that she just could not wrap her mind around. The first time such a problem had occurred was when Twilight was given the ‘talk’. It had taken her at least a week before she could even look at anypony the same way again. She had gotten over it of course, but she still had problems comprehending it.

The second event that this had occurred again was when Twilight was shown how a mare gives birth. She understood how the process worked, through books and lectures of sort. It was the actual video that she was shown that had her quiet. It turns out she couldn’t believe that a mare could go through so much pain to deliver a filly or colt. Either way, Twilight’s mind was something of a fortress, usually able to comprehend anything that came to be, and only ever breaking down in the impossible or with something that could not be processed by her heart.

“Twilight…What’s going on?” Spike finally asked, gaining courage to do his task. Twilight seemed only to register his voice, still lost in thought. “Look, I know that this must be a problem, but you can talk to me. Whatever it is, I’m sure me or your friends can get through it.” Spike noticed the look change in Twilights eyes, from glossy and staring off into space, to finally focusing on the world as it was. “Come on Twi, what was it that Fluttershy did that made your brain go to the cosmos? What did she say?” Spike asked, hoping to make this go faster, he didn’t like this at all and felt like something was wrong with this whole thing.

“Spike...”Twilight began, in a raspy voice. Spike, on his part, was concerned and relieved by this. He had gotten her to talk, but it seemed that she had indeed been sitting here a while. Seeing the coughing fit she had begun when she spoke, he quickly ran to the kitchen and got some water for her. When he had returned, he let her have the glass, and saw her drink it as if she had been in a desert. She must have been on auto mode, where she barely kept alive with what her body needed. She only went into this mode either in deep research, or this kind of event. Spike was just glad that she snapped out of it. Although, this did lead to a weird thought, that maybe he was somehow involved in the situation, as it happened with him asking these questions, and not with anyone else. What could it be then that troubled her?

“Twilight, what did Fluttershy say?” Spike tried one more time, hoping this time to get the full story.

“Spike..”Twilight started again, unsure of how to approach the matter. “We need to have a talk Spike.”

What proceeded to follow was at least a two hour conversation, consisting of many deep feelings and also a lot of food (Twilight was hungry after all). On the outside of the castle, Twilights friends, including Starlight, waiting impatiently. They wanted to know so badly, but had no idea what to do now. They hoped that Spike was able to get something out of it, but with how things were going, they questioned if they had lost two friends to some random conversation they had. After what felt like years to them all, the front doors opened. The all stood at attention, and waited to see who came out. When they saw it wasn’t Spike, but Twilight, they all grew concerned, until she greeted them with a smile.

“Hey girls..” She said, sounding tired, but happy. “I…know you girls want to ask me a lot of things, but I don’t think its in my best intention to…share this information. It is between Fluttershy and Spike.” She started, getting big eyes from everypony. “ With how it is, I want to say sorry for freaking you all out, I just couldn’t wrap my mind around the idea. I would talk more, but right now, I have a full belly, and want to go to bed now. So excuse me this last time for being rude, but goodnight!” With that Twilight used her magic to scoot Spike outside, and went inside to get some much needed sleep. Unfortunately, that meant Spike now had to answer all the questions they had.

One by one, they started shouting questions at him, ranging from what had just happened, to how he did it, or even what the whole thing was about. They got no answers from them at all though, as it was Spike’s turn to stare speechless. It wasn’t until Rarity asked the one question he had asked to Twilight that he answered them finally.

“What did she say?” Rarity asked him, finally getting annoyed by all this drama going on, and not having anything to gossip with or help her friends with…whatever it was!

“I…I have to go to Fluttershy’s…Follow me if you want to know!” he began, before starting out into a run and going into a full sprint, all the while yelling back to them, “This is going to be big!” The only thing they saw before running to catch up to him was a big nervous smile on his face.
What did she say?
Well, this is going to be put into two parts. I might be evil with this, but I want to be evil! *evil bug noises* I know there is a cliff hanger, but no regrets! If you figure it out though, you get a cookie, if not, I guess you still get a cookie! 

Let me know how I did though, all thoughts are appreciated!

The Journey to Recovery


If you were to look into the eyes of death, what would you see? Many would think that they would see their past, enjoying the final moments of that which they lived. Others believe that one would the way they died for all of time, never to gain peace or absolution. Those who seek knowledge and wisdom would tell you that upon looking into death’s eyes, one would only see eternal darkness. Whoever was right or wrong, one being wished to meet death and gaze upon what lied behind those eyes for the suffering that she endured to finally end.
Inside the dark forgotten depths of a research facility resided said being. She remained in a stasis state of being, fully aware of her surroundings, but unable to do anything due to her situation. Would she have done anything if she had the power to do so? She liked to believe she would, but without the knowledge of where she was or when she was anymore, she let her fate be set. To be studied and experimented on until the day she finally met death, and finally stare forever into its eyes.

Taking a different perspective from her own, which was just the feeling of liquid and needles inside of her, one would see scientist roaming around a laboratory. The room filled with gadgets, machines, chemicals and many bodies that occupied the space. There were many life forms there, ranging from hippogriffs to ponies, and even changelings believe it or not. They were given the assignment more than 900 years ago to create a being for a project called DRM. There were not sure when the assignment would be done, or when DRM would awaken, only that generations of scientist have been there for the sole purpose of sustaining the life that lie in the center room test tube
On first glance, one would see that whatever was in the tube looked to be a hybrid of creatures. A wasp was clearly present in the head region, with what seemed to be bird feathers on the torso, alongside dragon scales and claws as arms. The bottom half seemed to more complex ever, with bug like appendages that could be mistaken for mantis feet, and a tail of a wolf. Truly a creature of chaos or at least that is what somepony would think. Many ponies alike would even compare such a creature to Discord, the god of chaos. Could they be related perhaps? The answer to that would only be answered by either the scientist in the room or the creature herself…if she remembered how she got like this in the first place.
“Remind me again” a stallion said, breaking the silence, “why we are looking after this…thing?” He was of average build, but seemed to have an odd habit of twirling his pens in his hands. He had a tired expression that came with looking over a computer filled with life sign data and results for what they were injecting the test subject with. “I mean, it doesn’t do anything, and only responds when we give it a controlled shock by violently shaking.” He was talking to anyone that would answer his question, but he knew he would get the same response from his supervisor.

“Austin, how many damn times do I have to tell you, this ‘thing’ is important for our future survival and for Equestria’s future as well.” A bigger stallion commented. He was a bigger pony then Austin, and came with more muscles too. He was set in charge not just for his knowledge, but for his brawn too. “This thing has been alive for generations of my family, and I will not let it die on my watch. It has power, and power is what changes and affects this world!” The stallion walked over to the test tube that held project DRM and smiled as he ran a hand over the glass. “Even the elements of harmony would shake in fear of such a creature.”

“Even with that new princess’s student and her friends sir?” Another scientist commented. He was met with a glare from his boss and quickly tried to recover any respect he had from the man, which wasn’t much to begin with. “No-Not that they could, I am just curious sir. This…creature is old, and so far even princess Celestia has been talking about this new pony that apparently can wield the elements of Harmony like they were nothing.” He held his breath and waited for whatever was outcome. He knew that Strife would get angry, he was a power hungry fool, but he was smart enough to listen when he was given suggestions or thoughts.  

The stern glare given to the scientist by Strife gave him more fear with each passing second, but soon was gone when his leading scientist burst into laughter. “HAHA that seems like a good time. Those silly fillies wouldn’t know what to do with my ancestor’s creation.” Strife continued to laugh as his subordinate let out the breath he was holding for what seemed like a year. He was sure that he was going to be sent to the furnace room…no one lived when sentenced to that room. “Tell you what though” Strife continued, calming down from his laughter and looking back towards his fellow scientist. “You stallions better keep doing your job, as you should be thankful I let you live and give pay. I don’t think others would be so nice to do that.” He said, being stern and aggression in his voice. He turned back to his experiment and looked at it one last time before turning around for the door. “Okay everyone; make sure that the new phoenix DNA that we injected into it worked. It took 500 years to finally get that sample to work with it’s DNA, and I will not have anything go wrong. I’m turning it, update me in the morning at 0400 hours!”

“Sir yes Sir!” said everyone but Austin who just saluted. Strife knew that he was the laziest worker there, but he always got the job done, so he never got onto him. When Strife left, the scientist relaxed by an increased margin and decided to take it easy. Austin tapped his hoof against the ground, and started to get twitchy, annoying everyone there. A hippogriff named Ross though, had enough of this action though.
Everyday Ross worked hard and tried to show Sir Strife that he was a better worker and scientist then the lazy arse Austin, but he would never be recognized. All because Austin was the one who got the Phoenix DNA to work before him. He swore that Austin stole his notes and findings, but could not have any proof on the matter. But now, he had enough of this damn ponies action!

Walking up to Austin, Ross glared staring down at him as he looked at the lazy bum sitting there. He waited till the stallion in front of him looked up from the charts, only barely glancing at Ross before going back to the data that was continuously coming in. “What up Ross? Something going on with the stasis chamber?”

“Nothing wrong with the stasis chamber tube Austin, I make sure that the tube is always functioning. I actually WORK hard around here you know.” Ross said, making the emphasis on the work he does perfectly.
“Yea dude, I know. That thing was improved from your notes and findings. At least you don’t have to look at raw data 12/7.” Austin said bored out of his mind. He may have liked the pay, but staying down here in this research facility really got to him. He just wanted to go back home.

“Your damn right it was. Strife should be recognizing me more than anything, yet he always lets your lazy butt get away with everything!” Ross was getting angry again at Austin’s lazy attitude, that he just didn’t care at all. Why didn’t he just see that he should have been the one to take the glory of everything!

“He does? I don’t notice really. I’m usually staring at a screen that makes waves…Or that DNA stuff. Either way, this is booooorrring.”

“Well maybe you should just leave then? We all would be happy without you hear!” Ross raised his voice so the other scientist could hear. Some looked at them with fear, while others just tried to tune them out, concentrating on their work.

“Why would I want to leave? I’m stuck here either way until something happens.” Austin said, making a motion towards the screen.

Finally having enough, Ross grabbed Austin by his lab collar and put him up to his face. “Your just to lazy to do anything, like noticing when you’re not wanted! Nobody likes you here! Especially me! I’m going to make sure you never return back here again!”

“Dude! What in Luna!” Was all Austin could get out before the fight broke out between the two. Ross had done a sucker punch to Austin, sending him back against the wall. The other scientist rushed quickly over and tried to stop the oncoming brawl that happened, but to no avail were they able to even stop one punch between the two. It only escalated when the two fighters started to use objects in the lab to either stab, throw, or block whatever could be done. It looked like there would just be blood between the two till one died or got knocked out, that is until-

CRACK! The sudden noise caught everyone’s attention. Scientist stopped, and even Ross and Austin called a sudden truce to look back in horror to the subject in the middle. The glass…was cracking, and the split was getting wider! Ponies and creatures alike started to run about in a panic, trying to think of a way to fix it while the stasis tube leaked liquids. As each passing second went by, they fear in every eye in the room grew…until finally!


“NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!” A figure shot up from her bed, screaming. She was sweating and panting hard, looking around and gathering in her surroundings. The form next to her woke up as well in a sudden panic, registering what was happening. Realizing what had happened to her sleeping partner, she quickly gathered the girl into a hug, holding her tightly and rubbing her back.

“Wasp! Wasp. It’s okay, I’m here. Your safe dear!” came the response of a white cat. Her fur was thick and long, all while being a complete mess from the sleeping pattern she was in. She was worried about what it could have been to awaken her mate in such a form, but she would only be able to wait it out. Instead, she comforted the wasp that she had started a family with. When her bug had calmed down, she took her hands and placed them on the wasp’s shoulders. “Wasp, what happened, was it a nightmare? Do I need to send for Setsuna?” She asked, hoping she did not have to wake her guard. Underneath her breath she cursed her parents for hiring her, because she was still a baby to them, but she was a friend now, so she couldn’t just kick her away or be rude.

“No…No it’s okay…I just…the past is just catching up to me.” Wasp said, breathing hard as the events that followed her escape were red. She had killed, and yet she wasn’t in control during that escape…he was. Still, she left survivors, who she had hoped had lost her trail in searching for her. She calmed down after a few minutes, looking at her Fiance kitty and felt bad for scaring her. “I’m okay Flake, really. No need to worry about me. We have plans to keep tomorrow, so lets just get some more sleep.” She said, trying to convince her lover that everything was okay. Flake was not really buying it, picking up with her senses, but decided to let it go for now. She could pry details in the morning.

“Okay…but if it happens again, your talking or else! I won’t have this going on when we adopt soon.” She said, both happy for the thought of getting kids, but sad that she couldn’t help her buggy. They both snuggled into bed again, and flake was asleep within moment, cuddling up against Wasp.

Wasp for her part, stayed awake for a portion of the night, going over the nightmare that was present. She had questions, concerns even. This had been going on secretly for a while now, dreams of the past, and it was all building up to that one day of her escape. What could it mean though, and what actions should be taken? Should she seek out the princesses? She would have to think on it tomorrow. For now, sleep claimed her.

Outside the doorway, a Pegasus stood, ready for action. She had heard the scream and came rushing down, forgoing clothing and even weapon at the time. When everything was alright, she lingered a bit longer. She was worried, Flake loved this girl, but if something bothered her lover, then it bothered Flake. She would have to find a resolve, and hopefully fix it in the near future. She would not have an unhappy client….or best friend.
The Journey to Recovery: Prolouge
This is just a little pet project I have always wanted to do, which is getting back into writing. I need practice. This story is going to be updated randomly, due to work and other things, but when I don't update it, I will try for other short stories. That or longer chapters of this? It really depends on how this story goes. Whether or not I have actual people read or like it, eh. It will still be practice, and any feedback is always loved! thanks!
The First Time is Always the Worst
By a Wasp!

Babs walked in circles at the Apple farm, very stressed and not knowing what to do. It had been an accident for sure, and she hadn’t meant any of what she had said. Oh how she wished she could just go back in time with a spell and fix everything. To bad she wasn’t a Unicorn with magic. She sighed once again, and kept walking in circles. She had to fix this somehow, and she would come up with a solution. Hopefully she could still at least be friends with her. ‘But what if she doesn’t ever want to see me again! Oh god, what if I just screwed up my only chance ever for having a happy life! Stupid Stupid babs!’

Through the window of the house, Applejack could only look on at her cousin with a frown. She had come back from town today and hadn’t said a word to anypony. In fact, she was acting different than she usually did. Babs would usually put up this tough girl act and show her pride with how she worked and talked. Right now though, she looked timid…weak even, and AJ didn’t like it one bit. In fact, it scared her. It also didn’t help that she just didn’t know how to approach the situation. She kept thinking of what to do, but she really didn’t want to pry information from ‘lil’ Babs. If only Granny or somepony else were here. Curse Granny, Big Mac, and Applebloom leaving for the next week to see other family!

If she weren’t thinking on all this, she would have noticed that Babs had come inside and was walking towards her, hooves softly guiding her to the destination. “Applejack?”

The voice made AJ jump, causing her to almost scream, but she held tough, and looked Babs in the eye after calming herself. “Heya cousin, what ya up to? Everything okay?” she asked, shifting her hooves as the awkward silence wafted through the air, making it tense.

Time seemed to go on for a while with neither saying a thing. AJ was almost worried that she asked her the wrong thing, and was about to approach the subject again when Babs talked. “Applejack…have ya…every had ah fight with ah…lover?” She asked, looking away with a blush. The question came out of left field for AJ, not expecting such a thing from Babs. She had heard rumors of Babs being in a relationship, but she thought it was only that, rumors. For this to be coming out of her mouth, it made her…uncomfortable. However, AJ knew that something was going on with Babs, and for Babs to ask her this kind of question, it meant that she had to answer it!

“Whatcha mean Babseed? What kinda…fight did ya get into? And who is the lover ya talking about?” AJ asked, hoping that Babseed would confide with her. She wanted her to open up to someone, and if it had to be her, then she was going to make sure she was going to help.

“Well…I’m…having a secret relationship with…Twist..”Babs started, only to be interrupted by her cousin’s screaming.

“TWIST? Really? The girl with that lisp?” Applejack exclaimed. She quickly caught herself after realizing what she said and the look on Babs face. “No-Not that she’s a bad choice at all. She is a sweet girl after all, just didn’t expect you would be dating her. Good on ya!” She smiled, only to frown when Babs looked down to the ground.

“Yea…It would be great if I didn’t hurt her…” Babs said disheartened. Clearly there was more here than Applejack thought, she just hoped that it wasn’t what she was thinking.

“Now when ya say ya all had yourselves a fight…what happened?” AJ asked, hoping and praying to Celestia that they hadn’t gotten physical. She knew Babs had a temper when she was younger, but of course the filly had changed over the years. So she had faith in ‘lil’ Babs.

“It wasn’t anything bad at all AJ! I just…we…WE HAD A ARGUMENT!”  Babs all of a sudden yelled in tears, dashing towards AJ and wrapping her hooves around her cousin. AJ, alarmed, could do nothing but comfort the poor filly as she held on to her cousin. It took her a while before Babs had calmed down, but when she finally did, AJ backed away a little.

“Okay Babs, so you two had an fight, what did ya say to the filly, and how did it end for ya?” AJ asked, wanting to think of a solution to this whole problem. It was then that Babs explained how her and Twist were in town, taking a stroll when Twist started to lean on her. Babs, still new to the whole thing, started to move away, only having intimate moment with her in private, but still showing that they were friends in public. Apparently, Twist didn’t take to kindly to it, and started to continue to be closer, while Babs was getting frustrated. The two then went around a corner and started ‘talking’ about the problem, when on thing led to another. It was then that Babs accidently said “Well, I don’t want everyone to see me with such a dork!” It had been the wrong move on her end, as Twist had ran home crying.

After Babs had finished her story, she went back to staring at the ground. AJ went over the whole thing in her mind, and tried to think of a logical answer, but couldn’t. She saw Babs looking at her in desperation, so she tried to think faster. Her snout scrunched up, when suddenly a white marshmallow mare came to mind. Of course that mare was beautiful and quiet her opposite. She then reflected on how Babs and Twist could be similar to herself and the mare she had a crush on. What would she do if she had done the same thing to Rarity. Of course she would feel terrible and would try everything in her power to show that she was sorry. She would try gifts, pampering her, even making her a dress if she could, but she knew that none of that would make it better.

Thinking over these things, Applejack finally came to an answer that she knew would be the best answer. “Babs,” AJ started, gaining Babs attention. “What ya need to do is march right over to that Twist girls house right now, and tell her how you feel. Say that you’re sorry and explain that you didn’t actually mean it, cause nothing else will matter unless your honest. The first fight will always be the worst of fights, but relationships are built on honesty.” She said ending off with a smile. Babs looked to be comprehending what she had said, and continued to be deep in thought.

“Are…Are ya sure that will work?” Babs asked, worried that she would never get Twist back.

“Positive sugercube. I am the element of Honesty after all!” AJ said with a grin. Babs only stared at her with a look that showed uncertainty still in her eyes. Aj then continued, “Babs, if ya don’t even try, your aint following the Apple name. Apples always do their best, and I aint ever known ya to be…scared!” The last word put Babs right out the door with a determined look faster than AJ could say Sugercube. As she watched her go into town, she only hoped it would turn out okay.


The next day, Babs had returned from town, apparently staying the night, (Applejack had gotten a letter that told she would be.) As she came back to the farm, AJ just knew that things had turned out okay. It may have been the smile that Babs had on her now, or it could have been the feeling of confidence that came off of Babs. It also could have been Twist’s mom telling her all the juicy details, but AJ wouldn’t tell. When AJ had gone out to greet Babs, she was tackled with a hug that knocked her down.

“Thanks so much Cousin AJ! Your advice helped so much! Twist and me are happy again, and we agreed to go into this whole thing slowly so I can adjust! I can’t thank ya enough!” Babs did something really rare for AJ, and laughed happily, which caused AJ to laugh as well. Afterwards, AJ had to pinkie promise that she would not tell anypony that Babs went through all this and even remotely showed a weak side.

As Babs went over the details of what had happened, which included some hot makeout session that she skimmed over, AJ’s thoughts went to the marshmallow mare of her dreams, and thought about taking her own advice. Maybe she could ask her out for once and take her out for a time of her life.
Babs and Twist's first fight.
I just like the idea of Babs going to AJ for help, when AJ would just have to give the best relationship advice. 

Just a little something while I am in the middle of writing a story for my OC. It helps to always keep the mind racing. I need practice anyways. Don't mind any errors, but if you do find any let me know. I made this very late XD. Go Twabs!
