Episode 21: Takeover
Scourge made his way back to equestria and went straight to Canterlot, of course not before interrogating some of the pony folk to lead him the way.
Scourge: so THIS is the castle, Looks pretty big, perfect place to start,
Scourge said, he, Rosy, and Miles entering Canterlot castle intent on taking it for themselves.
Scourge: Blech...look at all this, this is not my style. Gonna have to change a few things up when I take over...
Scourge said walking around the castle, he viewed all of the windows, including that of the glass art that told the different stories, from when Celestia had to seal Luna in the moon, to when Spike had assisted Princess Cadence in the Crystal Kingdom to banish King Sombra.
Scourge: Are you kidding? are those ponies like...famous in this world?
???: what are you doing here?
--start music: Victory road (super smash bros brawl)--
Scourge was interrupted by a pony with a yellow coat and a fire like mane, her cutie mark was that of three flames shaped like a phoenix.
Scourge: and just who are you?
???: ILL be the one to ask the questions here, Why are you intruding in the princesses castle while she isn't here
The pony started walking toward scourge
???: Better yet, why are you even in this world, because last time I checked, you and your Mobian friends were supposed to be locked out of Equestria for good. You've got some explaining to do.
The pony said and scourge laughed
Scourge: ME? answer to a little pony? You must be joking. Sorry, I don't have time to play with you right now, I have a kingdom to rule.
Scourge said and the yellow pony frowned dashing in front of Scourge.
???: No, I'm afraid we have different plans for you...you see--
The pony began before Rosy shot up from behind Scourge
Rosy: HERES MY CHANCE! ILL SQUISH HER SO SCURGY WILL FIGHT ME FOR REAL THIS TIME HEHEHEHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Rosy screamed as she swung her hammer downward, the massive sharpened hammer slamming into the floor of the castle and causing it to crack.
???: Fine! You wanna play rough! NOW! GOGOGOGOGO!
The pony yelled out and the moment she did an army of new ponies arrived swarming through the castle at blinding speeds. one of them slammed into Scourge and took him outside the castle, two others rammed into Miles and Rosy, sending Miles upward and Rosy crashing through the floor.
???: WHOA WHOA WHOA CAREFUL CAREFUL! Celestias gonna freak if her castle gets any more messed up than this!
The yellow pony said as she took flight heading out, Scourge had already defeated the pony that had attacked him.
Scourge: You guys think your pretty fast don'tcha? Well I know for a fact that IM faster.
Scourge said as he rushed toward the castle and ran up it toward the yellow pony.
One of the flying attackers called out, identifying the yellow pony as Spitfire.
Spitfire: You guys don't worry about me! Take care of the other two!
Spitfire said as scourge released her and she landed on the highest platform of the castle. soon two other ponies landed by her side.
???: Lightning Dust!
Both: Reporting for duty sir!
--start music: condemnation wings (Blazblue soundtrack)--
The two called identifying themselves.
Spitfire, there is no time for formalit, Lets rush this guy down before Celestia and Luna return!
Spitfire said and the other two nodded, blasting in three different directions around scourge.
Scourge: pff, you all must not know who your dealing with!
Scourge said as he managed to stop Soarin in his tracks simply by kicking him upward, soarin was launched upward, however, catching Scourge off guard Lightning dust and Spitfire rammed themselves into scourges back with a sonic boom slamming him back down in front of the castle.
Spitfire: Had enough hedgehog? It's clear that you cant take on all three of us at once, so why don't you just--
Scourge said interrupting Spitfire and holding up a Chaos emerald.
Spitfire and Lightning dust: what??
Scourge yelled out and suddenly the chaos emerald in his hand began to flash and everything around him froze.
Scourge: heh...no wonder shadow uses this tech so much...I think I like this.
Scourge said as he stood to his feet and walked over to the frozen Soarin Spitfire and Lightning dust. he then proceeded to mercilessly beat the three of them, using a range of attacks including the sonic wind. Scourge simply snapped his finger and the time stop ended, everypony who was watching thought they had missed something. a moment ago Spitfire and her gang were ready to take on this guy, and suddenly now theyre all on the ground, helpless and beatn. Scourge picked up spitfire by her mane and looked at her.
Scourge: You let that princess come back so I can beat her to a pulp too...
Scourge said, soon, Rosy crashed through the window swinging her hammer through, that of which had 3 pegasi at the end of, Rosy rushed down at blinding speeds slamming the hammer on the ground next to scourge, the ponies at the end of the hammer now clearly unconscious.
Rosy: I DID IT! I SMASHED THEM! IT FELT SOOOO GOOOOOOD HAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Rosy said, only moments later, miles, using his two tails, flew from the shattered window next to scourge, who looked at everypony who witnessed.
Scourge: SEE THIS? YOUR PRINCESS IS NEXT UNLESS YOU ALL MEET MY DEMANDS! YOU SEE THIS!?
Scourge said as he pulled out his chaos emerald.
Scourge: THERE ARE SEVEN OF THEM! I HAVE TWO, BRING ME THE OTHER FIVE.
Scourge said as another pony, a unicorn stepped up.
???: AND WHAT IF WE DONT MEET YOUR DEMANDS! HOW DARE YOU UNDERESTIMATE US!
The unicorn said, and soon another band of unicorns stood by the ponys side.
The ponies said, and the moment they lined up they soon found that one of them had fallen to the ground, beatn like Spitfire.
Scourge: LOOK AT THAT PIECE OF TRASH AND BE WARNED! I...will NOT! play around. Do as I demand...or die. simple as that.
Scourge said, The unicorns now fearful of him, unable to understand his ability.
Scourge: Bring me the rest of those emeralds. You may encounter someone who looks a little like me....well...ITS NOT ME! and if you encounter this..being....destroy him at all cost, along with whoever may be accompanying him.
Scourge said and the ponies were shaken up, too shaken up in fact to begin moving.
Scourge: I hereby declare myself the New king of equestria, or should I say New moebius.
Scourge said with a large grin on his face.
Equestria: Ponyville: Twilights home:
Tails and his group had made it to Twilights tree home where they each had some more time to relax before sonics group too made it there.
Tails: hey Sonic, did you guys find anything?
Tails asked and the ponies as well as Sonic sighed
Sonic: Princesses werent even there!
Sonic said and Tails folded his arms
Tails: you don't think their fight with fleetway could have moved to another location could it?
Tails asked and Sonic shrugged
Sonic: Theres no way of knowing, or at least not until the princess replies to that letter spike sent..
Sonic said and the rest nodded in agreement.
Twilight: so..what...do we just wait here until the princess says something!
Rainbow dash: THIS SUCKS! Why cant we just find the impostors and KICK HIS CAN ALREADY!
Rainbow dash said annoyed by the constant waiting and wondering.
Applejack: Gotta give it to Rainbow on thissun, I admit im growin mighty impatient with all this.
Applejack said and the rest nodded.
Equestria: Unknown location
Luna and celestia walked through a desert area in Equestria, not far from Canterlot itself, Celestias horn glowing brightly.
Celestia: darn! I could have sworn that my horn would lead me to him again! we cant let that monster run amok in equestria!!!
Celestia said and Luna nodded in agreement, suddenly, a letter popped out of nowhere and using her magic Celestia went to read it.
Celestia: ....HES THERE?!
Celestia yelled out as she rushed backwards.
Luna: Sister? Sister what is it?
Celestia: Twilight sparkle and her friends have confronted sonic! she said to go to her home right away, and that it was an emergency!
--start music: showdown with mephiles (sonic 06)--
Celestia said as she continued running, soon, she and her sister took flight, ready to cross through canterlot to Ponyville, once she got above the castle however, in a split second she and her sister found themselves on the ground, beatn but very confused,
Scourge: hello...Its about time you two showed up. I know I know you must have somewhere to be but I must say it is an HONOR to meet the two, FORMER rulers of equestria...
Scourge said as Celestia and Luna glared at him
Celestia: SO! that was your plan all along sonic? to defeat us and take over? My faithful ponies would NEVER follow the orders of a coward like you!
Celestia announced and Scourge started to laugh.
Celestia: WHATS SO FUNNY!
Scourge: I cant believe you havent figured it out by now...no wonder you have to get other ponies to do all of your dirty work.
Scourge said and Celestia looked confused.
Celestia: w..What are you talking about?
Celestia asked and Scourge laughed silently
Scourge: well...first off.....IM NOT SONIC!
Scourge said, and suddenly Luna and Celestia became shocked, at the same time, they were filled with guilt.
Scourge: Second off, I WILL become the new leader of this world, and now that I have you two in the palm of my hand, I can do whatever I please. Now, throw them in their own dungeon. and stand guard.
Scourge said as he walked into the castle toward the throne room.
Celestia: We have a dungeon?
Celestia asked and Luna shrugged, they were both dragged away by Miles and Rosy, Miles carrying a chaos emerald as to stop them whenever they had thought to escape. All of the ponies stared upon this event trembling in fear.
Mobius: Freedom Fighters HQ:
After waking from his knockout, Knuckles had traveled to the freedom fighters HQ.
Sally:.....So hes back huh? And hes decided to attack equestria? Is that it?
Sally asked Knuckles and he nodded, confirming everything.
Sally: I was afraid of this, Listen, gather some of the members together, were going to go help them out.
Sally said and Knuckles nodded, she and Knuckles both left the hideout in search for Freedom Fighter Members.
