CHAOS WEEK: Chapter 1
A Pony Obsessed
It's an especially beautiful day in Ponyville. The sun is shining brightly, the birds are singing and a pleasant breeze drifts through the town. While the majority of ponies enjoy the afternoon frolicking together in the fair weather, Twilight Sparkle has hidden herself away in the darkest corner of her library.
In her hoof is a book. "The Origin of Chaos" is scrawled in gold serif on its leather bound cover. Ever since his defeat several days ago, Twilight has been unable to get Discord out of her mind. Not even sleep has served as an escape from the draconequis. She dreams of chaos reigning as she's trapped in stone, unable to escape; unable to move or to breathe.
"It's the thought of him escaping that's making me stressed," she tells herself.
Or at least that's what her friends tell her. In her heart she knows that the knot in her belly isn't one of fear, but of guilt. She knows what it's like to be turned to stone;
From Here to Eternity: Chapter Sixteen
Several hours passed as Twilight thought in silence. She barely even noticed when the ground started sloping upward. It wasn't until she heard a loud, piercing whistle that she was startled out of her thoughts and glanced around.
They were on the side of one of the mountains now. They had finally made it. There was still some grass and shrubbery here and there but most of the ground was rock. She looked up to take note of the how the mountain peaks seemed to shoot up into the sky like black spikes.
She winced as the shrill whistle sounded again and she looked ahead to see Discord hovering in the air. He flew in a circle and whistled again before floating back to them with a satisfied smirk, "If THAT didn't get their attention, nothing will."
"How maaaaaaaarvelous," Rarity drawled, "And if THEY don't notice I'm sure the DRAGONS will."
"Oh tut tut," he gave her head a few swift pats, "You must stop looking at the gloomy aspects of life Rarity! Think positive for once!"
"I find that diffi

Eventually Twilight became aware that the windstorm was over; the lack of sound was deafening. She cautiously opened her eyes and glanced towards where she knew the entrance to be. Since it was still dark and incredibly stuffy, she assumed Discord had yet to move out of the way. Everything was so quiet now though, the danger had to be over.
One of her friends shifted beside her and Pinkie Pie's voice whispered, "Do you think everything's okie-dokie now?"
"I don't rightly know," Applejack stood up with a groan, "Swarms and pestilence, I'm stiff!"
"It sounds as though everything has calmed down," Rarity quietly said, "Perhaps our 'dear protector' will finally let us out of this rather repulsive prison?"
Rainbow dash quickly stood and shook herself, "I say we get out right now, even if we have to bust our way out. I can't stand being in here anymore!"
"I bet," Applejack cracked her neck, "Ah, much better. So wha'cha think Twi? Think ta sky's clear?"
"I don't see why not," T
From Here to Eternity: Chapter Thirteen
Twilight's hooves ached by time the sun was beginning to set. Walking, walking, walking...and more walking...nopony tried to ask Discord to stop and he didn't pause to ask if they needed a break. Twilight was passed the point of caring though, she was moving out of habit by now. She wasn't even bothering to think about what she was doing anymore.
The sounds of distant barking caught her attention and she lifted up her head in curiosity. Dogs? In the middle of nowhere? Her mind began working again and she paused in mid-step, "Discord? Are there wolves around these parts?"
"I wouldn't know Twi," came the quiet reply, "But I hear them too. Want to scout ahead Dashie?"
"Huh?" Rainbow dash muttered, "Oh, yeah, sure," she tiredly flapped her wings and began to fly head. The barking was becoming much louder though.
"Um, I don't think those are wolves," Fluttershy quietly said, "They don't sound right."
"Oh I hope they aren't those Diamond Dogs," Rarity suddenly became alert,
