ADVENTURES OF THE EQUESTRIAN NINJA
Chapter 27: A Chaotic Awakening
Naruto was currently in the training room at the basement and was facing the training dummy which was made of straw with a bull's-eye at the center of it. Naruto's horn lit up with orange aura as several kunais floated out of his ninja pouch and hovered overhead.
"Here I go!" Naruto quickly moved as his tail poked through the hoop of one of the kunai and flung it towards the dummy, but he didn't stop there as he continued to grab the other kunai and throw them as well until all of them had hit the target with none missing the straw dummy "Bolt chain!" a stream of lightning shot out of his horn and raced towards the dummy as it hit one of the kunai before arcing towards the others before it was turned into nothing but charred remains.
"Whew, that was a good workout," said Naruto as he wiped a bit of sweat from his forehead with a hoof then he levitated the kunai back into his ninja pouch "Man I'm thirsty, time to get a drink," he headed upstairs and made his way to the kitchen, there he opened the fridge and levitated a jug of orange juice out and placed it in the table.
Naruto went to the cupboard to bring out a cup before walking back to the table "It's kinda quiet around here with Scoots being with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle to write an essay about their field trip to Canterlot, and Trixie is busy with something else. All in all, it's just another normal day," Naruto levitated the jug over the glass and tipped it over to pour the juice out…only for nothing to come out?
"Huh?" Naruto tried it again and still got the same result, thinking that it might be empty he placed it on the table and used his tail to lift it only to notice that it felt a bit weighted much to his surprise. He turned the jug upside down and started to move it up and down to force the content out "Will…you…come…OUT!"
Sure enough something came out of the jug as it plopped into the cup with a wobble, Naruto approached cautiously with a spoon and poked it as it wobbled from the contact "What's this, I know very well that it was juice when I put it in the fridge so why this?" his curiosity got the better of him as he scooped a bit with his spoon and put it in his mouth, his eyes widened in surprise at the taste "Jelly? But how did orange juice turn into jelly?" he took another scoop and ate it "Not that I really mind anyway…this stuff taste good!"
After eating the juice turned jelly, Naruto opened a cookie jar and took one out to eat "Might as well eat a cookie to accompany the jelly," he took a bite and his eyes widened again only this time he was spitting the cookie out and ran to the sink to rinse his mouth before looking at the cookie jar with shock "What the hay?! Why did that cookie taste so salty?! This is becoming too weird for me, I think I better walk out to clear my head over this,"
Naruto walked out of the mansion after distastefully getting rid of the cookie in kitchen. Naruto was thinking about the oddity in the kitchen, then he looked up to find himself standing in front of the library "Maybe she might have an idea of what happened this morning," Naruto walked over to the door and knocked on it, after a few moments it opened to reveal Twilight who smiled upon seeing him.
"Oh hey Naruto, how's your day?" said Twilight.
"Hi Twilight, my day has been pretty weird though," Naruto replied.
"What do you mean by that?" asked Twilight curiously, then Naruto told her of what had happened in the kitchen "That does seem quite unusual, are you sure that you didn't leave the cookies for them to go bad?"
"Twilight, I bought those cookies from the Sugarcube Corner yesterday and we both know that Pinks or the Cakes would never make a mistake like this," said Naruto.
"You're right, but still-"
*Drip* something splashed on Naruto's muzzle much to their surprise, they looked up to see a pink cloud hovering above them. Before either could say anything, brown droplets started to fall from the cloud. Naruto licked a droplet from his cheek and was surprised at the taste.
"It tastes like…chocolate milk? Seriously, what's going on today?" said Naruto.
"I don't know Naruto, maybe one of the books in the library can explain this phenomenon," said Twilight before she dashed back into the library. Naruto noticed that a large cluster of pink clouds hovered over Sweet Apple Acres and even caught sight of a streak of rainbow.
"Twilight, I think we should head over to the apple orchard. I think Applejack and maybe the others are over there," said Naruto.
"Okay Naruto, let's go," Twilight came out while levitating a spell book before her.
"Hey wait for me!" Spike came running out of the library after them.
The trio made their way to the Sweet Apple Acres and came upon a rather strange sight before them. There were large heaps of popcorn kernels, the apples had grown so large that the trees sagged to the weight and several animals were eating. Rabbits with abnormally long legs were seen running around with Fluttershy watching in disbelief and let's not forget that it's raining cats and dogs with the pink clouds with Rainbow Dash chasing after them.
Naruto saw Pinkie Pie enjoying herself as she dived from one heap of popcorn to another while eating and drinking from the chocolate rain "Are you seeing this Naru? Popcorns, chocolate rain and cotton candy clouds! This is paradise!"
"Only for you Pinkie Pie, but this is a disaster! Does anypony know how to stop this?" said Applejack.
Rarity walked up to them while dressed in a fancy raincoat and carrying an umbrella "I certainly do agree with Applejack, these weather conditions are certainly not good for my beautiful mane,"
"Don't worry everyone, I've just learned a new spell that'll fix everything," said Twilight as she sealed the spell book into her
"Go for it Twilight," said Naruto.
Twilight closed her eyes in concentration as her horn lit up before unleashing a large purple wave of magic as it spread throughout the area and enveloped the oddities in a bright light. As the light faded away, everypony looked around only to see that…nothing had changed in the least bit! Twilight was in disbelief at what didn't happen.
"My failsafe spell…failed? What do we do?"
"Uh give up?" said Spike to which Twilight frowned at.
"We can't give up on something like this Spike," said Naruto.
"Naruto is right Spike, I'm sure Twilight will come up with something. She always does," said Rarity with Naruto nodding in agreement.
Twilight thought deeply about her next plan "Hmmmm, time for plan B. Rainbow Dash could you corral all those clouds in one corner of the sky?"
"All over it!" Rainbow Dash flew off as she grabbed each every one of the pink clouds and gathered them in one place, she swirled around them to meld into one large cloud.
"Applejack and Naruto, I need you two to bring those high-strung storm clouds down to earth,"
"Got it Twilight, let's do it AJ," said Naruto as he focused on his chakra.
"You got it pardner," Applejack took out her lasso and was spinning it around.
Naruto shot out a chakra tendril as Applejack threw out her lasso with both snaring the large pink cloud and proceeded to pull it towards the ground, Naruto held it in place while Applejack tied the other end of the rope to a fence in order to anchor it to the ground before Naruto let the chakra tendril disappear. Twilight moved on to the next phase of her plan when she whispered something into Fluttershy's ear who nodded in affirmation and spoke out loud
"Oh dear, I hope that none of the animals see these delicious chocolate-filled cotton candy clouds. I'd hate to have to share them," said Fluttershy.
"You and me both sister," said Pinkie who was taking a bite out of the clouds, but then all the animals rushed to the clouds and started to eat them much to her annoyance "Hey!"
"And when ya'll are done with that, feel free to have some popcorn for dessert," said Applejack while she walked up to the others.
"You see Spike, you should never give up. There's nothing we can't overcome if we all work together," said Twilight confidently.
"You got that right Twilight," said Naruto.
Suddenly Spike belched up a flicker of green flames which faded to reveal a rolled up parchment sealed with a red ribbon, Twilight levitated the scroll and opened it before reading.
"Princess Celestia and Princess Luna wants to see us all in Canterlot immediately!" said Twilight.
"Maybe they know something about the strange stuff that's been happening around us," said Naruto.
In Canterlot castle, Celestia was pacing up and down the throne room with worry and Luna was trying to calm her sister down.
"Sister please be calm, Naruto and the other bearers are on their way to help resolve the situation," said Luna.
"I know Luna, but I can't help but worry. Our spell was supposed to have been permanent and now he has returned to resume his rule over Equestria,"
"I know very well Celestia, which is why they coming to help stop that before it begins,"
At that moment the doors to the throne room opened to reveal Naruto and the other mares running inside towards them much to their relief.
"Princess Celestia, we came as soon as we could!" said Twilight.
"Thank you for coming," said Celestia.
"Is it about the weather? Or the animals' weird behavior? What's happening out there and why isn't my magic working?" Twilight would have continued talking had Celestia not held out a hoof for her to stop.
"Follow us," Celestia and Lunar walked into a hallway with Twilight and the others followed close behind.
Naruto looked around and saw that the stained glass windows were displaying different sorts of pictures, he saw one of Celestia and Luna with the Elements of Harmony surrounding them. Another showed Twilight, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Applejack and Pinkie Pie wearing their signature elements. Naruto saw a picture of himself wearing Kosei no Ha while when his around his neck to show that he is the first bearer of the new Element of Purity. Then he saw a picture of all of them defeating Nightmare Moon, after watching for a bit Naruto turned his attention back to the princesses.
"We called you here in a matter of great importance, it seems an old foe of ours someone we thought to have defeated long has returned," said Celestia.
"Who is it princess?" asked Twilight curiously.
"His name…is Discord," Luna said the name with distaste in her voice.
Naruto heard Fluttershy let out a squeal of fright before she hid behind him and was quivering, he turned to what scared her and saw a stained glass window which displayed a picture of an odd looking creature. It has the body of a brown horse, the head of a gray goat with a white beard, an ivory deer antler and a turquoise goat horn, a black donkey mane, a long fang and an orange snake tongue. The rest of it consists of a right paw of a lion, a left talon of an eagle, right leg of a green lizard. The left wing is of a purple bat and the right one is of a blue bird, and it has a red dragon tail with a white tuft at the end.
"Whoa, so this guy must be Discord. Talk about a walking zoo," thought Naruto.
"Discord is a mischievous spirit of disharmony. Before my sister and I stood up to him, he rules over Equestria in an eternal state and unhappiness," said Celestia.
"I remember it as if it was just yesterday, many Pegasi, earth ponies and unicorns suffered under his twisted rule over the land. It angers me just remembering it," said Luna with a frown on her face.
"The guy sounds just like Gato, ruling over others with fear and making them fall into despair," said Naruto, the mares knew whom he was talking about from watching his memories.
"Indeed Naruto, so after discovering the Elements. We combined our powers and rose up against him, turning him into stone," said Celestia.
"All right, Princess!" said Rainbow Dash.
"We thought that the spell we cast would keep him contained forever, but since Luna and I are no longer connected to the Elements, the spell has been broken,"
"No longer connected?" Twilight was confused at what her teacher said.
Soon they reached the end of the hallway and stood before a multicolored double door which has the image of the sun at the center of it.
"This is Canterlot Tower, where the Elements are kept inside since all of you recovered them. We need you to wield the Elements of Harmony once again and stop Discord before he thrusts all of Equestria into eternal chaos,"
"But why us Princess Celestia? Since you two were able to defeat Discord with the Elements, then you should be able to do it again," said Twilight hesitantly.
"Remember what Celestia said Twilight, that they are no longer connected to the Elements. Then that means that they can't use them anymore," said Naruto.
"Since we are able to use the Elements…" Rarity began.
"Then that means we're the ponies to kick Discord's butt!" Rainbow Dash finished by punching the air.
"You're right, you all showed the full potential of the Elements by harnessing the magic of your friendship to defeat Nightmare Moon, and with the addition of the new Element I know that you can defeat Discord,"
Hearing this convinced Twilight as she stepped forward "Very well, you can count o-,"
"Hold on a second Twilight! Eternal chaos with chocolate rain, you guys. Chocolate rain!" said Pinkie Pie looking desperate.
"Pinks, that would also mean no more laughter or parties," Naruto deadpanned.
"On second thought, Discord's going down!"
"Please ignore her Princess, we would be honored to use the Elements of Harmony again," said Twilight.
Celestia nodded before turning towards the door, she inserted her horn into a hole located at the center of the sun which began to glow before it slowly opened to reveal inside a box studded with colorful gems, placed on top of a pedestal.
"Ooooh, you can keep the Elements. I'll take that case!" said Rarity with glitters in her eyes while Naruto shook his head in amusement.
Celestia levitated the box from the pedestal towards them "Have no fear ponies, we have total confidence that you will be able to defeat Discord with these!" she opened the box to reveal…nothing?
Everypony let out a gasp while Celestia dropped the empty box in shock that the crucial tools needed for their victory were missing.
"Oh well, if anyone needs me. I'll be outside in the chocolate puddles with a giant swizzle straw," Pinkie Pie was trotting off when she got pulled back by a chakra tendril wrapped around her courtesy of Naruto.
"Not so fast Pinks, we need to focus on the new situation here," said Naruto.
"The Elements are gone! How's this impossible?!" said Twilight worriedly.
"That chamber is protected by a powerful spell that only Luna and I can break! This doesn't make sense!" said Celestia.
Suddenly they heard a dark voice echo throughout the hall "Make sense? What fun is there in making sense?"
"I recognize that voice anywhere," Luna gritted her teeth upon hearing the voice.
"Discord…show yourself!" Celestia shouted in anger while Naruto activated his Aura Sight to locate the source of the voice, he scoped the area until he settled his eyes upon a certain part where he detected something unusual.
"Over there!" Naruto pointed a hoof for everypony to look towards one of the stained glass windows where they saw a picture of Discord actually moving!
"Celestia and Luna, it's has been so long since we last met. Although it wasn't so pleasant then since both of you turned me into stone which was a poor taste in humor," said Discord.
"It is the least we could do to stop you from causing more misery for the ponies back then!" said Luna.
"Stop being a coward and show yourself! What have you done with the Elements of Harmony?!" said Celestia.
"I simply 'borrowed' them for a little while," said Discord.
"You'll never get away with this!"
"I almost forgot how grim you could be, which is quite…boring,"
"Hey! Nopony insults the princess!" shouted Rainbow Dash angrily who then flew at Discord only for the Draconequus to disappear for her to crash into the window and pry herself out.
Discord reappeared on the window only larger than he was previously with a taunting look on his face "Oh so you must be Rainbow Dash, famed for her loyalty, the Element of Harmony you represent,"
"That's right! I'll always be loyal to the princesses!" she replied with determination as Discord disappeared again.
"We'll see about that,"
"I can't believe we're wasting time talking to a tacky window," said Rarity then Discord appeared in a window close to her.
"The beautiful Rarity, representing the Element of Generosity, if I'm not mistaken," said Discord.
"So you know who we are, big deal," said Applejack.
"Oh I know more than that, honest Applejack,"
"You seem to know our strengths too," said Twilight as she walked up to them, Naruto was just looking at Discord with wariness, the fact that he knows about them despite the fact that they had never met bothers him a lot as the Draconequus might know about his origins.
"Yes Twilight Sparkle, and yours is the most powerful and elusive Element, Magic. Fluttershy's is Kindness and Pinkie Pie is a personal favorite of mine, Laughter,"
"I guess it means that you know about me as well," Naruto finally spoke up.
"Of course I do, Naruto Uzumaki, a being from another world and the first bearer of the new Element of Harmony which is Purity. I find it intriguing about your Element's ability to connect with the other Elements of Harmony, though I'm rather skeptical about you representing it given where you came from," said Discord to which Naruto frowned upon hearing.
"Enough stalling Discord! What have you done with the Elements of Harmony?!" said Celestia angrily.
"Oh so boring, Celestia. Really? Fine I'll tell you, but I'll only tell you my way. To retrieve your missing Elements, just make sense of this change of events. Twists and turns are my master plan. Then find the Elements back where you began," said Discord before disappearing, this time for good while laughing evilly.
"Oh great, just what we needed to hear. A riddle," said Naruto with a groan of annoyance.
"Um can we go home now?" said Fluttershy fearfully.
"What do ya'll reckon he meant? Twists and turns and ending back where we started?" asked Applejack.
"I don't know AJ, it could mean anything just from hearing it," said Naruto.
They were all thinking about the riddle when they heard Twilight call out to them
"Hey guys, I've figured it out. I bet Discord hid the Elements in the palace labyrinth!" Twilight pointed through a window for them to see the maze made of tall grass hedges.
"Sounds like a good place for us to start the search," said Naruto, then he turned to Celestia and Luna "We'll be going to get the Elements back and defeat Discord,"
Celestia and Luna nodded in affirmation.
"Good luck my little ponies, the fate of Equestria rest in your hooves," said Celestia, they all bowed before turning to leave towards the labyrinth.
Naruto was about to go as well when he heard Luna call out to him, he turned around to see looks of concern on their faces.
"Naruto, please be careful when you go up against Discord. He is known to be very cunning," said Luna.
"Don't worry, I'll be careful around him. Wish me luck," said Naruto before he ran after Twilight and others.
The pony ninja caught up and they finally arrived at the entrance to the labyrinth which for some strange reason looked quite ominous in appearance.
"W-we have to go in there?" Fluttershy asked while looking frightened.
"Nope! Dopey Discord forgot about these babies!" said Rainbow Dash while flapping her wings proudly, then she took to the air over the hedges "I'll just do a quick fly over and we'll have the elements in no time flat!"
Suddenly there was a flash of light and to everyone's surprise and shock, Rainbow Dash's wings had disappeared. A now wingless Rainbow Dash plummeted towards but Naruto quickly channeled chakra to his hooves and ran to where she's was going to crash and she safely landed on his back.
"Thanks for the catch Naruto," said Rainbow Dash.
"Anytime Dash, but what happened to your-" Naruto was about to ask when they heard Fluttershy screaming, they turned towards her and were shocked to see that her wings were gone as well. Naruto suddenly felt the connection to his magic being cut off.
"Naruto, your horn is gone!" said Rainbow Dash as she pointed a hoof at his head.
Naruto felt for the horn on his forehead and confirmed that it was gone like she said "What the heck is going on here?!" he also saw Twilight and Rarity panicking over the disappearance of their horns as well.
There a bright flash of light before it faded away to reveal Discord who was laughing loudly at the spectacle.
"You should have seen the looks on your faces, it's so priceless!" said Discord wiping tears from his eyes.
"What did you do to our wings and horns?!" said Naruto angrily letting his chakra flow through his body, ready to attack the Draconequus.
"I simply took them away to prevent any cheating in this game," Discord replied.
"Game? What game?" asked Twilight.
"A game which the prize are the Elements of Harmony. The first rule is no flying and no magic,"
"First rule?" said Rainbow Dash looking confused.
"The second rule is everypony has to play or the game is over, and I win," Discord smirked mischievously "Good luck everypony!" then he disappeared with laughter leaving the others to look worried.
"Never fear everyone, we still have each other," said Twilight with a smile.
"Yeah! It's like Twilight said, we can do anything as long as we work together," said Rainbow Dash,
This made the rest straighten up with confidence, they trotted up to the entrance of the labyrinth.
"Alright guys, let's do this!" said Twilight with everypony nodding in unison.
"Together!" they said as they took the first step into the labyrinth.
From out of nowhere, the hedges suddenly rose from the ground between each of the ponies completely separating one from the other.
"What the?! Girls hang on, I'm coming!" Naruto turned to face a tall hedge and channeled chakra to his fore hoof to form a claw and proceeded to slash a hole in the hedge till he saw Fluttershy, he was about to reach out to her when the hedge rapidly regrew itself to repair the hole he made. Naruto tried again but still got the same result. "Fine then, I'll just get over it! Naruto performed a chakra enhanced jump over the hedge but then vines suddenly shot out and wrapped around his body before tossing him back to the ground.
"Naruto, are you alright?" Naruto heard Fluttershy's worried voice and quickly replied.
"I'm okay but it seems like Discord intends to keep us separated,"
"Then we should all head towards the center of the labyrinth and regroup there!" said Twilight.
"Got it, but you girls be careful. Who knows what else Discord has in store for us," said Naruto.
After hearing voices of affirmation from Twilight and the others, Naruto dashed forwards as he made his way further into the labyrinth with none of them noticing Discord hovering in the air above with a smirk on his face before disappearing in a flash of light.
Meanwhile Naruto was running through the labyrinth towards the center as fast as he could while taking left and right turns, sometimes hitting dead-ends and having to double back to take another route.
"I hope Twilight and the others are okay," thought Naruto as he ran.
Suddenly he happened to find himself standing in a wide open space of the labyrinth, Naruto walked slowly and cautiously through the area, then he stopped in midstep and looked around with a frown before speaking out loud.
"Come out Discord! I know you're here!"
There was a puff of white smoke before it dissipated to reveal Discord wearing a stereotypical black ninja outfit with a mask on.
"Oh ho, so you were able to find out that I was here. Quite impressive despite being ranked a Genin before arriving in good but currently boring old Equestria," said Discord before he snapped his fingers and the outfit disappeared.
"You seem to know a lot about me, how is that possible?" asked Naruto.
"I'm a spirit of chaos and disharmony, so of course I would know a lot of things. Like how you failed your graduation exams three times in a row, your being a king of pranks in your village which I personally approve, the very first mission out of the village, oh and let's not forget that you used to be container for a rather gigantic fox with rabbits ears and nine tails I'm wondering how they managed to squeeze it into you," Discord held out a notepad and was checking things off with a pencil while wearing a pair of reading glasses.
Naruto narrowed his eyes at what he heard, it's almost as if he was watching him as it all happened.
"What intrigues me is the fact that you represent purity despite your background and past lifestyle, surely you didn't like how they treated you and yet still you smile at them,"
"That's because I understood why they hated me even if I was the wrong target of their hatred. Besides, playing a few pranks on them turned those frowns upside down which is an okay in my book," said Naruto. "Now let me ask where the Elements of Harmony are?"
"What makes you think I'm going to tell you? Do you have any idea how it feels to be turned into stone? Your joints would feel all stiff, take it from someone who experienced it" asked Discord stretching his body that one could hear his bones cracking.
"Well you better work out then cause when we find those Elements, we sending you back to the Stone Age,"
"Oh really? I wonder how your friends would feel about that though?" said Discord.
Naruto frowned at the statement and closed his eyes to sense where Twilight and others, he was surprised and then worried when he sensed their emotions being negative especially from Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy with the exception of Twilight. He opened his eyes to glare at Discord who was drinking a glass of chocolate milk from a straw.
"What did you do to them?!" Naruto demanded angrily.
"Whatever do you mean? I was here with you the whole time," said Discord with a golden halo hovering over his head.
"Cut it with the innocence act! I know you have something to do with it!" Naruto looked ready to attack the Draconequus.
"Okay, I simply helped them see that not everything is as it seems," said Discord.
"In that case…I'm going to help you see the consequences for messing with those close to me!"
Naruto raised a fore hoof to fire a chakra bullet at Discord who conjured a tennis racket and then swung it at the incoming projectile and sent it flying back at the blond stallion.
"I guess it's timeout for this game, I think this new game would be just as exciting," said Discord taking a few practice swings with the tennis racket.
"We'll see, Shadow Clone jutsu!"
There was a puff of smoke and several clones appeared before charging at Discord. One of the clones got close enough to throw a punch, then Discord disappeared and reappeared from behind with a golf club which he swung at the clone to send it flying before it dispelled. Another clone leapt into the air as its tail was covered in chakra and elongated.
"Chakra Tail whip!" it swung the tail downward but Discord quickly moved out of the way leaving the attack to create a trench on the deep.
Discord wiped an imaginary sweat off his forehead "That was close, you have let me put on my aftershave first,"
Then he heard a sound from behind and turned to see Naruto quickly approaching him with a blue spiraling sphere
"Instead of a shave, how about I shred that beard of yours! Rasengan!"
As the technique drew close, Discord arched his back just enough to allow Naruto to fly over him, Naruto saw this coming as he cancelled the jutsu then he wrapped his tail around Discord's neck and pulled over before slamming the Draconequus hard on the ground. Naruto drew close to the prone form of Discord only to realize that he was looking at a straw dummy.
Naruto felt the ground shifting a bit and leapt backwards just as a pit suddenly opened up at where he once stood, Naruto turned and saw a net falling towards which he quickly formed a chakra claw to cut apart.
"This game is a real tough cookie," said Discord who appeared while dressed in a hunter's outfit and holding a tranquilizer gun.
"Then how about a little role reversal?" said Naruto with a smirk.
Discord only had a few seconds to quirk an eye brow in confusion at what Naruto had said when the ground burst from underneath him and several tendrils of white energy appeared and wrapped around his body tightly, completely restraining his movements.
"Now I got you," said Naruto feeling victorious, but then he noticed that the Draconequus was smiling instead of looking worried or angry.
"On the contrary, I got you,"
When Discord snapped his fingers there was a flash of light and Naruto noticed that he couldn't move, he looked down at himself to discover that he was wearing a straitjacket which was wrapped around his body and he fell over to the ground. Naruto struggled to break free from the jacket but it didn't so much as even stretch from the strain.
"Now that I've reduced your craziness to a docile level, I can now began with the operation," said Discord dressed in a doctor's uniform with a medical mask on.
"What are you talking about?!" shouting Naruto who was still struggling against the straitjacket with no positive results.
"Haven't you wondered when I said 'no wings and no magic' I didn't include no chakra? That's because I know full well that you would die if I took it, but that's not the only reason I have,"
"What is this other reason?" asked Naruto defiantly.
"You seem to have a little secret hidden away in your closet and I can't help but feel extremely curious and want to find out what it is," Discord's left talon glowed with magic "Now hold still, this might tickle a little,"
"What do you mean Discord? You know that I no longer have Kurama inside of me!"
"True, but who says you're empty?"
Then he thrust it into Naruto's chest who watched in shock as the talons phase through it, his body suddenly felt strange as the talons grabbed something and was pulling it out which resulted in a bright flash of light, then a dark chuckle was heard but the strangest thing was that it wasn't Discord laughing but someone else.
"I have reunite with Naruto and Rainbow Dash, together we're a team. Rainbow Dash won't let us down and I know how strong Naruto is, then we can figure out where the Elements are and why everypony is acting so strange," said Twilight.
Like she said, ever since they were separated, Twilight managed to regroup with the other mares but then she noticed their color had changed to grey and were acting differently. Applejack was actually lying, Pinkie Pie displayed a distaste for laughter especially when she thinks it's at her, Fluttershy was acting rudely and Rarity was being extremely possessive of a large boulder which she claims is a beautiful diamond and is what Twilight is currently carrying on her back for her.
"I hope they're okay, I wonder what that explosion is all about," thought Twilight.
Then Applejack pointed at the sky and spoke up "Well looky there, Rainbow Dash is flying away…she abandoning us,"
"Okay, now I know that's a lie," Twilight looked up to the sky and was shocked to see that Rainbow Dash was actually flying away and leaving them behind "No…it can't be!"
Suddenly the ground started to shake as all of the grass hedges sank to the ground, leaving behind a large crater which the ponies are currently standing in.
Then Discord appeared with a victorious smirk on his face "Well, well, well. Somepony broke the 'no wings, no magic rule' which means that you lose and I win," he snapped as the horns and wings returned to their owners.
Twilight looked around and saw that somepony was still missing "Wait where's Naruto?"
"If you looking for him, he should be dropping in right about…now" said Discord while looking at a wristwatch.
Suddenly a loud thud was heard and everypony turned towards the source of the sound and were surprised see Naruto who had bruises on his body and there were some rips on his jacket, then another pony landed close to them but what was shocking is that…the pony looked exactly like Naruto! Only that his eyes were black with red iris and was grinning darkly.
"W-who are you and why do you look like Naruto?" asked Twilight.
The lookalike turned towards and smiled darkly "Allow me to introduce myself, I am Dark Naruto or you can simply call me Yami. Unlike my weak opposite Hikaru over there. I represent the pain, sorrow and hatred which he hides within himself. In other words, I am the real Naruto Uzumaki!"
"No you're not, there's no way that you're the real me!" said Naruto while glaring at the doppelganger who simply scoffed at him
"We'll see about that Hikaru, soon we'll find out who is the one and true Naruto," said Yami Naruto.
Meanwhile Discord was laughing out loud at the spectacle as storm clouds appeared overheard and unleashing thunder and lightning.
"Aaaaah, what perfect weather to release chaos!"
